OCTOBER 11th-21st, 2018
THURSDAY, OCT. 11th, 2018
On Thursday, Venus and Mars are in a 90-degree right angle to each other, causing chaos in love relationships. This is the astrological textbook recipe for a relationship in which tempers are always hot, the sex is always hot, passions are always hot and in which you are fighting violently with each other one moment — and then violently having sex the next moment. Just saying.
FRI-SUNDAY, OCT. 12th-14th, 2018
This weekend, 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.
MONDAY, OCTOBER 15th, 2018
On Monday, hot and steamy romance is in the air when Mercury conjunction Venus causes sparks to fly. Both planets are in Scorpio, the sign of dark passions and even darker jealousies. Because Venus is Retrograde right now, you may get a message from an old flame who rekindles desires you thought were long extinguished.
TUES-THURSDAY, OCT. 16th-18th, 2018
On Tuesday, we come to the CAPRICORN FIRST QUARTER MOON. In Antinous Moon Magic, we call this the MERCHANT MOON which offers you an opportunity to reap the benefits of your hard work — and find new opportunities for material advancement.
FRI-SUNDAY, OCT. 19th-21st, 2018
This weekend, Mercury is at right angles to Mars. Some astrologers say this is when people sharpen their swords, but we prefer to say it is when people sharpen their tongues to use as weapons! Remember that lovely line from "The Importance of Being Earnest" by Oscar Wilde (who is a Saint of Antinous, by the way): "On an occasion of this kind it becomes more than a moral duty to speak one's mind. It becomes a pleasure." This is an aspect which encourages people to say vicious and intentionally hurtful things. People are overly persnickety and bitchy and downright mean. You'll be amazed how true this is. But on a more positive note, this promises to be a gossipy sort of time when pouty Cancer Mercury is in a trine with vague and dreamy Neptune.
SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:
Another exciting week lies ahead between October 22nd and 28th when we come to the TAURUS FULL MOON. That is the lunar phase which, in Antinous Moon Magic, is called the HADRIAN's VILLA MOON. This is a way for Antinous the Gay God to help you find your spiritual home, the celestial palace you have made for yourself. This Moon is aimed at helping you focus and center your spiritual heart ... More details next time ....
