FEBRUARY 16-26, 2017
THURS.-FRI., FEB. 16th-17th, 2017
This week offers in the perfect opportunity for a job interview or for a presentation of a special project. Mercury is in a good sextile aspect to Mars to help you get your point across articulately and strongly to others.
SAT-SUNDAY, FEB. 18th-19th, 2017
This weekend ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD is at right angles to the Sun. This is the SAGITTARIUS THIRD QUARTER MOON, which we call the SACRED STAR phase in Antinous Moon Magic. In the midst of confusion and chaos, the Spirit of the Star touches the top of your head and conveys sudden and total clarity. This Spirit is never deceived by appearances. Meditations and rituals conducted during this lunar phase are ideal for discerning clarity in opaque situations, for clearing the mind of nebulous distractions and for seeing clearly into other worlds ... the perfect night for clairvoyance.
MON-TUESDAY, FEB. 20th-21st, 2017
This new work week starts off so very optimistically when Mercury forms a sextile aspect aspect with surprise-filled Uranus and also forms a trine aspect with exuberant Jupiter. Be prepared for pleasant surprises and unexpected messages. Be sure to buy a lottery ticket.
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.
SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:
Another exciting week lies ahead between February 27th and March 5th when 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 ... More details next time ....
