FEB. 23 to MARCH 5, 2017
WEDS-FRIDAY, FEB. 22nd-24th, 2017
This week, which started off so optimistically, takes a sharp turn down a spooky, dark alley at mid-week when aggressive Mars aligns with impulsive Uranus and both are in a tight, 90-degree square angle to death planet Pluto. This is the textbook recipe for armed conflict, terrorist attacks and economic collapse. On the one hand, there is a powerful yearning for a dramatic new beginning. That is a good thing, in general. But on the other hand, there are ruthless people who take advantage of that yearning to push their own agendas for changing the world to fit their own selfish ends. Quite aside from global politics and economics, you will sense these tensions in your own domestic life and on the job. Remember to keep your head and strive for compromise while others lose their heads or ram their heads through the wall.
SAT.-SUNDAY, FEB. 25th-26th, 2017
This weekend we come we come to a hazardous Solar Eclipse during the PISCES NEW MOON. Be careful and protective of your friends! Why? In Antinous Moon Magic this is the lunar phase we call the DOG MOON of fidelity, friendship and faithfulness. The Spirit of the Dog Moon is loving and supportive friendship. This Spirit is loving and faithful, comforting you with familiarity when you see yourself reflected in this Spirit. It is the perfect combination of comfort and stimulus to grow and provides a wonderful companion that walks with you through life, helping you define and refine who you are and who you choose to be every day.
MON.-FRIDAY, FEB. 27- MAR. 3, 2017
This entire week is one of the most extraordinary in years when Mars engages in volatile configurations with a number of major planets to shake up not only the world, but also your personal life. This is the flaming climax to the THE YEAR OF MARS 2016-17 which began at the March Equinox last year and will end at this year's Equinox. The final few weeks will be explosive now that Mars is in its home base of Aries. This week you can brace for Mars conjunction Uranus, Mars opposition Jupiter and Mars trine Saturn even as Jupiter opposition Uranus revs up the energy even higher. This is a week when you must expect the unexpected: assassinations, revolutions, financial chaos, political coups ... just for starters. And in your personal life you must brace for microcosm reverberations in your domestic relations and job situations.
SAT.-SUNDAY, MARCH 4th-5th, 2017
This weekend we come to the Gemini First Quarter moon ... the lunar phase we call the JACKAL MOON in Antinous Moon Magic. Each Lunar Phase represents a Divine Spirit or Archetype. The Spirit of the Jackal in Antinous oracular arts is the embodiment of cunning and skill and sleight-of-hand and being slightly dodgy and sneaky but also being incredibly adept and learned in the ways of the world. The Gemini First Quarter Moon is the March moon of the Trickster, who taunts and teases, who plays tricks, who leads the soul through dark and treacherous passages ... who is more treacherous than any Underworld foe ... but whose cunning enables him to bring his charges to their goal. Meditations and rituals carried out tonight are best suited for looking beyond the the veil of lies and deceit that others (or we ourselves) throw over our eyes to prevent us from seeing clearly. This is also a very good night for finding canny and cunning solutions to difficult problems ... strategies for out-smarting those who seek to pull the wool over our eyes.
SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:
Another exciting week lies ahead between March 6th and 12th when you may find yourself feeling a bit guilty, a bit self-critical, a bit inadequate. That's the Virgo Full Moon ... but in Antinous Moon Magic, this is the DIANA MOON ... the moon of sisterhood, of kindred spirits in whom you can confide ... and a "sister" need not be blood related ... or even female ... you have a "sister" and tonight's full moon helps you find her ... More details next time ....
