MAY 31st-JUNE 10th, 2018
THURSDAY, MAY 31st, 2018
Thursday is the perfect day for a job interview or for a presentation of a special project. Mercury is in a good trine aspect to Mars to help you get your point across articulately and strongly to others.
FRI-SUNDAY, JUNE 1st to 3rd, 2018
This promises to be the best weekend of the year for good fortune in love and money when Venus forms a Golden Triangle with Jupiter and Neptune. Over three days, Venus forms a trine aspect with Jupiter whilst also forming a trine aspect to foggy Neptune. On the positive side: you can trust your intuition to buy a lottery ticket. But on the less positive side, you don't know when to stop and squander your hard-earned money on a big risk ... in money and love. But your wager may pay off big time. This is the best weekend of the year for a wedding.
MON-SUNDAY, JUNE 4th to 10th, 2018
This is one of the most remarkable weeks of the year ... protentially one of the most promising weeks ... and yet one of the most dangerous weeks ... when numerous cosmic configurations converge all at once. On Wednesday 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 week 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.
But also on Wednesday, the Earth may shake for you when Venus moves into opposition with Pluto, something that happens only once a year. There is equally the possibility of making a profound commitment at this time, particularly in a sexual relationship. Power struggles are also possible in this phase. Venus opposition to Pluto can also literally cause the Earth to shake ... in the form of earthquakes.
And then this: your brain is ablaze with often confusing and conflicting ideas when Mercury aligns with the Sun. Old astrology texts dating back to Ancient Rome call this a potentially hazardous time, and speak of a "Scorched Mercury" which impairs communications and judgment. But in ANTINOUS MOON MAGIC, we see that very differently. This Sun/Mercury conjunction is indeed intense, but in a positive way. Antinous/Mercury focuses the gay spiritual light of his heavenly father Ra-Herakhte right at you. Open your spiritual heart to the light and joy and permit it to burn away all doubt and all fear and trepidation. Most people live in spiritual darkness. They are like people who live in caves and are afraid of sunlight because it hurts their eyes. But should we shun the light and stay in the cave with them? Antinous/Mercury says it's safe to open your spiritual eyes — and spiritual heart — and become accustomed to the light.
And also on Wednesday, you view the world through rose-colored glasses due to Mercury-square-Neptune and Sun-square-Neptune. This is the kind of aspect that occurs when Jack sells the family cow for a handful of "magic" beans. In the fairy tale, of course, the beans turn out to be magic after all. But on this weekend the beans aren't magic at all. If you do holiday shopping, it might be a good idea to watch your emotions and not let yourself be carried away. It might also be a good idea to watch your wallet and not let it be lifted by some pickpocket.
SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:
Another exciting week lies ahead between June 11th and 17th when 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 ... More details next time ....
