APRIL 27 - MAY 14, 2017
THURSDAY, April 27th, 2017
On Thursday the most outrageous statements turn out to be absolutely true when Mercury aligns in conjunction with impetuous Uranus in Aries. A politician will say something which sounds far too unbelievable to be true. Believe it! This is the kind of day serendipitous miracles occur. A miracle is something that seems impossible but happens anyway.
FRIDAY, April 28th, 2017
On Friday Venus leaves dreamy and romantic Pisces and charges into hot and horny Aries .. for the second time this year ... after having gone Retrograde during March and early April. Sitting in front of your computer wistfully fantasizing about Mr. Right suddenly gives way to the urge to go out and find him ... and not stop until you have found him. Aries Venus can be overly assertive and me-firsty in relationships. But if you are congenitally shy and retiring, this means you may finally work up the audacity to stand up for yourself ... and about time, too. But move now because Venus leaves Aries on June 6th to settle down in placid and docile Taurus, where Venus prefers the comforts of home.
SAT-TUESDAY, April 29-May 2, 2017
These four days are ruled by the Leo First Quarter Moon. It is the Lunar Phase in Antinous Moon Magic which we call the SCARAB MOON of miracles and wish-fulfillment. Meditations and rituals carried out tonight can result in an unexpected breakthrough. Eureka! Unanticipated solution. Fortuitous surprise. Sudden change for the better. Plucking victory from the jaws of defeat. An oracle reading or meditative trance can produce a sudden answer for transformation of a bad situation into something profitable.
WED-THURSDAY, May 3-4, 2017
Aren't you tired of all the computer glitches, "lost" files, travel delays and snafus of recent weeks? Take heart! Now Mercury does an about-face and starts going forward again as seen from Earth, ending three weeks of Retrograde "backwards" travel. So you can safely message friends and co-workers a prediction that certain "lost" computer files or parcels will show up by the time they go to work the next morning. Mercury going backwards creates this sort of impish mayhem with matters concerning communications, documents and money. Misplaced tickets, keys, "lost" computer files, letters and packages which vanish into postal limbo ... all are typical of Retrograde Mercury. The "lost" things turn up again as if by magic when Mercury goes Direct again. A skilled astrologer, Hadrian no doubt amazed his courtiers by accurately predicting when some "lost" document or wayward courier message would finally re-appear out of no where.
FRI-SUNDAY, May 5-7, 2017
This weekend the cosy Taurus Sun forms a dreamy sextile aspect to intuitive Neptune, inviting you to reflect introspectively about how this year is going so far, and to start dreaming about how the rest of the year may turn out. This is the perfect evening for oracle games, scrying, dreamscaping and fortune-telling.
MONDAY, May 8th, 2017
This week the Sun is in a positively profound trine with Pluto that enables you to get down and dirty and show what is really inside of you ... deep ... down ... inside. This is a good day to grow beyond yourself ... shed your old shy image the way a snake sheds its skin ... and present your shining inner self to the world.
TUESDAY, May 9th, 2017
On Tuesday the most outrageous statements turn out to be absolutely true when Mercury aligns in conjunction with impetuous Uranus in Aries ... for the second time in two weeks. On April 27th Retrograde Mercury conjunction Uranus brought you sudden messages from the past. Now that Mercury is going forward again, you can expect incredible messages about the future. A politician will say something which sounds far too unbelievable to be true. Believe it! This is the kind of day serendipitous miracles occur. A miracle is something that seems impossible but happens anyway.
WEDNESDAY, May 10th, 2017
On Wednesday we come to the Scorpio Full Moon ... a moon for penetrating the veil of lies and illusion and seeing clearly who are your friends (and who are not) and also seeing yourself for what you are. For that reason, we call it the ENEMY MOON in Antinous Moon Magic.
THURSDAY, May 11th, 2017
On Thursday reckless Gemini Mars squares off against nebulous Pisces Neptune. Imagine yourself barreling down a freeway at high speed ... and suddenly being enveloped in a fog bank which cuts visibility to zero. If you don't reduce speed immediately, you are bound for disaster. Gemini Mars is the fast sports car thundering down the highway ... and Pisces Neptune is the fog bank ... and you are in the driver's seat. This astrological configuration spells trouble for people who proceed full speed through life without any regard to their surroundings. They will come a cropper this week. However, this Mars/Neptune Square configuration is excellent for people who have latent intuitive, artistic or spiritual talents ... like Antinous-Dionysus. Mars invigorates and enlivens these talents. So the answer is: Proceed with caution, but keep your eyes open for brilliant new opportunities and insights which otherwise would have flashed past you unseen at high speed.
FRIDAY, May 12th, 2017
On Friday the work week ends on an industrious note when Mercury forms a brilliant and glowing trine aspect with Retrograde Saturn which empowers you with perseverance (Saturn) and clear forms of expression (Mercury) to make some serious long-term plans for the future. You'll remember that Mercury trine Saturn occurred on April 24th ... when Mercury was retrograde (going "backwards" as seen from Earth). Now Mercury is going forward. that means preparations you made in the past will begin to yield results.
SAT-SUNDAY, May 13-14, 2017
This weekend you may feel like a "noble knight" when Mars forms a trine aspect with the Jupiter. Unfortunately, Mars trine Jupiter many people may become deluded that they are superheroes, using others as kindling to start fires — not always literally often metaphorically. Either way, it is just so they can be seen to be the hero and put it out and destroy the lives of others in the process. Beware of crusaders who urge you to take part in some sacred battle. And beware of demagogues who insist they are fighting a holy war, sacrificing the lives of many innocent men women and children in the name of war or competition for basic/personal needs, just so they look like the hero.
SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:
Another exciting week lies ahead between May 15th and 21st when the Moon squares off against the Sun for the Aquarius Third Quarter Moon which in Antinous Moon Magic we call the FORUM MOON. This is the best Lunar Phase of the year for oracles or spell work involving interaction with groups or a public setting. Gathering place. Club. Work place. Any place where numerous people gather. It is also the best moon for rituals focusing on parks, gardens and the outdoors in general, such as working rituals for protecting a back garden or outdoor venue ... More details next time ....
