MAY 25 to JUNE 11, 2017
THURS-FRIDAY, May 25-26, 2017
Overnight Thursday-Friday we come to the Gemini New Moon — a good time to set a goal for the coming four weeks. And given the presence of Gemini energy, it's an auspicious time to begin gathering the information you will need to set this mission in motion. In Antinous Moon Magic we call the Gemini New Moon the MERCURY/HERMES MOON because the mercurial and seemingly fickle energy of Gemini is in the spotlight during this New Moon period, amping up agitation and nervous energy.
SAT-SUNDAY, May 27-28, 2017
This weekend your intuition is enhanced when Mercury forms a sextile aspect with dreamy Neptune. You should trust your intuition about financial and business matters, but be wary of fast-talking con-men who try to cloud your mind. You can count on finding the right word at the right time by trusting your inner voice.
MONDAY, May 29th, 2017
On Monday the world comes to a screeching stop when Mars is in opposition to Saturn, a once-yearly occurrence which always brings things to a temporary standstill. Gemini Mars wants to press the pedal to the metal, but Sagittarius Saturn has both feet firmly on the brake. Mars is action-oriented while Saturn is slow and cautious. This configuration creates frustration on the global level as well as in your own personal life. Just be patient and it will pass.
TUESDAY, May 30th, 2017
On Tuesday dreams really can come true when ambitious Mars forms a positive sextile aspect with impulsive, anything-goes Uranus. This powerful configuration throws open all the doors and windows so that a breath of fresh air comes blowing through your life on all levels ... at work and also in your interpersonal relationships. Uranus throws everything up in the air and opens new possibilities.
WEDNESDAY, May 31st, 2017
On Wednesday be careful about confiding in others, because Mercury-trine-Pluto means all secrets will be revealed.
THURSDAY, June 1st, 2017
On Thursday social-minded Taurus Venus forms a productive trine aspect with Sagittarius Saturn. Venus trine Saturn helps you perceive whom you can trust for the long run.
FRIDAY, June 2nd, 2017
On Friday we come to the Virgo First Quarter Moon. This is the Lunar Phase we call the MOON OF MELANCHOLY ... but don't worry ... it can be your "lucky" moon ... In English-speaking countries, "Melancholy" is almost a dirty word. Puritan upbringing has conditioned us to grin and bear it, to adopt a stiff-upper-lip attitude ... Other cultures are not so uptight about acknowledging this feeling of sadness. They realize it is a necessary part of life. It is what the French call "larmoyant" — a lovely word which suggests there is great beauty in sadness ... For example, crying at the movies is very beautiful and cleansing for the soul ... it is cathartic and healthy ... Meditations and rituals on this night are best suited for identifying the source of sadness in your life. If you find the source of sadness in your life, then this Lunar Phase provides you with the energy to effect changes which will move you out of melancholy into the next lunar phase.
SATURDAY, June 3rd, 2017
On Saturday Venus aligns with Uranus even as the Sun is in a trine aspect to Jupiter which means this may be your lucky day when Mr. Right steps into your life. Anything is possible in love and money today: a hot new love affair, a lucrative business deal or a sudden financial gain.
SUNDAY, June 4th, 2017
On Sunday Mars enters Cancer, where the war god feels slightly uncomfortable and tends to pout. Whereas Gemini Mars was all about asserting yourself through action, Cancer Mars is all about asserting your emotions. Instead of engaging in intellectual exchange of opinions, we find ourselves taking remarks the wrong way and snapping at others like the Cancer crab. Mars remains in Cancer until 5th September, when it will enter duty-obsessed Virgo.
MON-TUESDAY, June 5th-6th, 2017
Overnight Monday-Tuesday Venus enters the earthy and sensual realm of Taurus, The flirting of the past few weeks Venus spent in Aries is now over. Taurus Venus loves romantic cuddling with good food, good wine, flowers, candles and soft music. Venus in Taurus brings the need for reliability, steadfastness and loyalty. Having a partner whom you can lean on and rely on when the going gets tough is high on the priority list.
WED-THURSDAY, June 7th-8th, 2017
Overnight Wednesday-Thursday mental clarity shines bright and clear once again when Mercury leaves plodding Taurus and sweeps into Gemini — Mercury's astrological home sign. This shift dramatically improves communications for the next three weeks. And since Mercury also watches over commerce, the coming weeks will also be an ideal time for financial and career decisions.
FRI-SUNDAY, June 9th-11th, 2017
This weekend is special when Venus trine Mars when Venus and Mars form a powerful sextile configuration. This magical Venus-sextile-Mars moment occurs only twice a year. It is possible now to take a balanced approach to conflict, problems and projects that require effort. This can combine both a gentle touch and firm action, sensitivity and forcefulness. Negotiation and interaction with others could be aggressive and determined now, but also balanced with sensitivity and style. Any expressions of anger, frustration or discontent are more likely to be tempered with fairness, moderation and composure. On the spiritual level, you are able to balance the masculine and feminine energies of your soul to create a beautiful whole. It all starts off on Friday when we come to the SAGITTARIUS FULL MOON which we call the DENARIUS MOON because it focuses its light on treasures in your life. And because major planets are Retrograde right now, this Full Moon is the best time of the year to use ANTINOUS MOON MAGIC to open your heart to ancestral spirits, guardians, spirit guides or past-life soul mates. They have a "treasure" of experience which they will lovingly impart to you.
SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:
Another exciting week lies ahead between June 12th and 18th when we come to the Pisces Third Quarter Moon, which is what we call the THE LOTUS MOON in Antinous Moon Magic. The LOTUS MOON means the weekend will be a time of joyous anticipation of something big which is just beyond the horizon. It is perhaps the most spiritual of all the Lunar Phase Spirits because it knows that its wait will not be in vain. It is waiting for something it knows must and will come to pass. It is a perfect night for casting the Antinous Moon Magic "Lotus Moon Spell" to obtain your heart's desire ... More details next time ....
