OCTOBER 5th to 15th, 2017
THURS-FRIDAY, OCTOBER 5th-6th, 2017
Overnight Thursday-Friday we come to the ARIES FULL MOON which amps up the tension levels 100 percent! Be careful: In Antinous Moon Magic we call this the LIGHTNING MOON for the bolt of lightning which nearly killed Hadrian and Antinous atop Mount Cassius in autumn of the year 129 AD. The LIGHTNING MOON is the most impetuous and accident-prone moon of the year ... More details next time.
SAT-SUNDAY, OCTOBER 7th-8th, 2017
This weekend your mind is aflame with ideas when the Sun aligns with Mercury in Libra but tempers flare as Venus is in a 90-degree right-angle square to stubborn Saturn. Venus-square-Saturn means that relationship discussions are fraught with stumbling blocks. And because Venus and Saturn also have a play in money and business, you can expect problems in that area as well.
MONDAY, OCTOBER 9th, 2017
On Monday casual conversations turn into ugly arguments which can end in tears when lying Libra Mercury squares off against stubborn Capricorn Pluto. Mercury is deceptively smooth-talking in Libra and Pluto is eager to dismantle established structures in Capricorn (which explains what is happening in global finances and politics). Mercury square Pluto is an aspect which encourages con men to try to pull a fast one on gullible souls. If you are gullible, then watch out. If you are a con man, then this is your day to shine.
TUESDAY, OCTOBER 10th, 2017
On Tuesdayy batten down the hatches because storms and earthquakes are in store when the Sun forms a 90-degree right angle with Pluto — a configuration which happens twice a year and which invariably spawns strife, conflict, warfare and even bad weather. The good news is that this configuration lasts only about 48 hours.
WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 11th, 2017
On Wednesday things get intense when Mars forms a 90-degree square right angle to Saturn. It is like driving down a highway with one foot on the brake and the other on the accelerator because Mars wants to press the pedal to the metal, while Saturn wants a cautious, go-slow approach. The result is pent-up frustration which boils over into rage. Open warfare breaks out not only in crisis regions of the world, but also in street traffic, in your work place and in your domestic relationship. Cold-blooded, vengeful wrath strangles out rational thought.
THURSDAY, OCTOBER 12th, 2017
On Thursday the Earth will shake and conflicts will rumble around the globe ... and throughout your own household when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD is at right angles to the Sun. This is the Cancer Third Quarter Moon, which is the DISCORDIA MOON in Antinous Moon Magic ... The goddess Discordia can be a powerful friend ... or deadly foe. Many gay men have assertiveness problems. On a gay spiritual level, the Discordia Moon shines its light on problem areas where you need to stand up and assert yourself. Anger is one of the most cathartic emotions, and it can also be a very effective cleanser of the emotional system. However, when it becomes a habit, it actually loses its power to transform and becomes an obstacle to growth. Meditations and rituals during the Discordia Moon can help you in identifying the role anger plays in your life and restoring it to its proper function so that it can bring new energy and expansiveness to your emotional life.
FRIDAY, OCTOBER 13th, 2017
On Friday, you find exactly the right words for that important email, post or tweet when Libra Mercury forms a positive sextile aspect with precise Saturn.
SAT-SUNDAY, OCTOBER 14th-15th, 2017
This weekend, Mercury is in opposition to Uranus, igniting spontaneous verbal explosions. Pent-up anger bursts out into all-out armed conflict. This is a classic textbook recipe for terrorist attacks. It definitely spells trouble for the world's hot spots. The threat of assassination looms large, as does the danger of terrorism. You need to be on guard for outbursts of rage. The important thing is to be aware where your rage is coming from. Don't vent your rage on innocent victims. Instead, be consciously aware of the source of your anger so that you can harness the powerful energies to carry out constructive projects you have been stalling on for way too long.
SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:
Another exciting week lies ahead between October 9th and 15th when we come to the LIBRA NEW MOON... the Lunar Phase we call the TRIPOD MOON in Antinous Moon Magic in honor of the clouds of incense with which three-footed incense braziers filled the Ancient Temples of Antinous. The clouds of incense created a sacred other-worldly atmosphere of intoxication and purification ... but made rational decision-making difficult. If you are having trouble "seeing the fog", the Libra New Moon will show you where the confusion lies .... More details next time.
