JUNE 22-JULY 9, 2017
THURSDAY, June 22nd, 2017
On Thursday you will begin to feel all emotional now that both the Sun and Mercury are in Cancer. In particular, Mercury has left its home base of Gemini and entered emotion-oriented Cancer, so that your Conscious Mind will find itself engulfed in emotions during its brief visit of only two weeks to Cancer. This is the time to give voice to your emotions.
FRI-SATURDAY, June 23rd/24th, 2017
Overnight Friday-Saturday things get really romantic when Venus and Pluto bring good fortune to long-term relationships by means of a gentle trine aspect which cements relationships. In addition, we come to the CANCER NEW MOON. In ANTINOUS MOON MAGIC we call this the ADONIS MOON ... the lunar phase which enhances relationships ... Antinous has always been identified with Adonis, the god of beauty and desire, and a central figure in various mystery religions ... Adonis is the divine ideal lover ... Rituals and meditations tonight are best suited for focusing on your lover ... or how to find a lover ... or simply a good night for being with your lover.
SUNDAY, June 25th, 2017
On Sunday Mars gets all crabby and antagonistic when the war god is in a square-off against exaggeration-prone Jupiter . You might even feel a bit crab-like yourself. With Mars in Cancer, we are emotional, easily offended and defensive. Mars in Cancer can be passive-aggressive and manipulative and unforgiving! Jupiter intensifies these energies to the max.
MONDAY, June 26th, 2017
On Monday moody Cancer Mars is in a 120-degree trine aspect to dreamy 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. Cancer 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 trine 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.
TUE-FRIDAY, June 27-30, 2017
This entire week is dominated by Gemini Mercury, which engages in some challenging aspects which will set the course for the coming six months of the year. First off, beware of online websites that promote gross exaggerations or promises that sound too good to be true — because most likely they aren't true. That's because Mercury and Jupiter are at right angles on Tuesday. Then Wednesday promises to be a gossipy sort of day when pouty Cancer Mercury is in a trine with vague and dreamy Neptune. On Thursday communications wizard Mercury aligns in perfect conjunction with war god Mars in emotional Cancer. This configuration is ideal for giving you convincing arguments for defending your fortress or your territory or just your rented room. If someone is trying to push you out ... Cancer Mercury and Mars will give your voice the eloquence ... and the volume ... you need to make yourself heard. But try not to over-do things, because Mercury/Mars are in at tight, 90-degree square angle to exaggeration-prone Jupiter. You might even feel a bit crab-like yourself. With Mars in Cancer, we are emotional, easily offended and defensive. Mars in Cancer can be passive-aggressive and manipulative and unforgiving! Jupiter intensifies these energies to the max. In addition, on Friday and all through the weekend Mercury and Mars are in opposition to Pluto, which is an age-old recipe for destruction, war, conflict and even earthquakes and volcanoes. For "normal" people this means Friday will be a day of unexpected and even cataclysmic upheaval. For spiritually minded gay people, Friday is a fine opportunity for working some startlingly effective Antinous Moon Magic.
SAT-SUNDAY, JULY 1st-2nd, 2017
This weekend we come to the Libra First Quarter Moon, the beautiful moon of balance and equilibrium we call the VENUS MOON in Antinous Moon Magic ... This is Venus Genetrix, the Mother of Rome ... Rituals and meditations tonight are best suited for questions about your mother or your "inner mother" and also about finding flexible solutions to problems. The serpentine qualities of the "Snake Goddess Moon" offer insights into how to slither around or through seemingly impervious barriers in life.
MON-TUESDAY, JULY 3rd-4th, 2017
On Tuesday Venus leaves dependable Taurus and enters flirty Gemini. If you have been thinking about spreading your wings and diversifying your love life, the coming weeks is the time to do it. Gemini Venus is also a good time to diversify money matters. Love and money will be "up in the air" for the next month, so be flexible and in order to take advantage of the airy opportunities.
WEDNESDAY, JULY 5th, 2017
On Wednesday get ready for surprise revelations when Mercury forms a 90-degree right angle to Uranus. Mercury square Uranus means that you can expect to hear the unexpected ... wholly surprising and even shocking things will bombard your ears. On the global level, these configurations produce highly volatile statements. On the personal level, you can expect amazing disclosures.
THURSDAY, JULY 6th, 2017
On Thursday big cosmic changes are in store when, first of all, Mercury leaves Cancer, the one Sign where Mercury feels really bored. Starting now, Mercury fast-forwards through fiery Leo in just two weeks, exiting on July 26th. This will be an exciting two weeks of tweeting, chatting, messaging, emailing, blogging and vlogging for sure. Also on this thrilling Thursday, a Sun trine Neptune aspect enhances your ability to lift the veil between the worlds and to perceive spirits in other realms. You can also receive messages from the beyond and communicate more effectively with your higher self and with spirit guides during this profoundly spiritual configurations. Because Neptune is retrograde (going "backwards" as seen from Earth) you can delve into past-life incarnations. Meanwhile, the Sun is in a 90-degree right angle to Jupiter. These configurations provide great opportunities for success but also some tests of character. You can be very fortunate but also have to make your own luck. Lucky breaks and popularity can lead to an inflated ego and other excesses in life. For example, you may have a tendency to over-estimate your own abilities or resources. This could lead to a scattering of energy or wasting money on unnecessary luxuries. There may also be a tendency to accumulate possessions such as collections of a special thing, coins, figurines etc. It may be that your beliefs and morals become over the top and cause difficulties with others. Excessive behaviors are most problematic because these are more likely to affect your close relationships. Overconfidence can get in the way of making lasting friendships. The key to dealing with the excessive nature of Jupiter is moderation. You can still maintain a healthy ego but you won’t want to let excess and pride damage your standing in the world. Jupiter is testing your ego. Any arrogance or boastfulness may actually be covering for a wounded ego, or a lack of self-confidence. Yes, you do wish to be of importance, to be famous or wealthy and to receive the praise and ovation you deserve. They key to dealing with this aspect, apart from moderation, is to not get ahead of yourself. Focus your energy on doing the groundwork, the daily grind needed to perfect your special gifts.
FRIDAY, JULY 7th, 2017
On Friday expect a message from someone special when we enjoy a Mercury sextile Venus aspect which enhances communicative skills. You may get a message from a business partner or from a friend or lover who ignites interests that quicken your pulse just in time for the weekend.
SAT-SUNDAY, JULY 8th-9th, 2017
This weekend we come to the Capricorn Full Moon, which is the lunar cycle we call the TOWER MOON in memory of the observatory tower which Emperor Hadrian built at his Villa to study the stars. This is the moon for reaching for the stars ... seeking job promotions ... stretching on tiptoes to grasp something previously unattainable.
SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:
Another exciting week lies ahead between July 10th and 16th when we come to the Aries Third Quarter Moon, which is the lunar phase of the determined warrior we call the TRIBUNE MOON in Antinous Moon Magic ... This lunar phase is particularly powerful this year because it occurs precisely when the Mercury is in an impulsive sextile aspect with Uranus and love goddess Venus is in a dreamy trine with Neptune. If you are someone lacking in self-assertiveness, then ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD is sending assertiveness your way on his moonbeams tonight ... so that you can forge ahead in with determination and vigor ... The Tribune Moon is about confronting your fears ... above all, your fear of baring your true self to others. It is about turning your weaknesses into your strengths. It is about transforming destructive energies into constructive ones. It is about finding ... and fulfilling ... your destiny ... Meditations and rituals this night are best suited for finding ways to assert your will constructively ... for the benefit of yourself and for others ... More details next time ....
