NEW SAINTS OF ANTINOUS FOR 2020




NEW saints of Antinous were announced by the Hollywood Temple of Antinous tonight during Foundation Day ceremonies shared globally with worshipers in North and South America and in Africa and Europe via Zoom.

Foundation Day commemorates the founding of the city of Antinoopolis by Emperor Hadrian on 30 October 130 AD on the shores of the Nile where Antinous died a few days earlier.

That was 1,890 years ago, and Foundation Day marks the beginning of our liturgical calendar ... Happy New Year 1890!

"This is a joyous occasion," said Priest Jim Crawford, participating from Washington DC in the evening's ceremonies. "We have mourned the death of Antinous. Now we rejoice in his deification and the foundation of his new city and religion!"

THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME
By Our Crystal Meditation Adviser Martin Campbell



THERE's no place like home and tonight's Taurus Full Moon ... "Hadrian's Villa Moon" ... is full of joy and settled comfort. 

You can luxuriate in the calm and comfort of the home be it a physical space, the welcome in your lover's arms or or that calm and comforting space in your consciousness when you you know you are safe and warm. 

There are really only three crystals I would advise meditation with for this moon phase:

1. Emerald - it brings a happy home, fidelity from your partner and protects you from external dark magic or ill intended enchantments. Emeralds sound expensive but those are the faceted ones in fine jewels - the 'raw' unfaceted ones are much cheaper and much more powerful (as is the case for all crystals, incidentally).

2.  Purprite – It is the crystal recommended to help you during a house move. It is also known to disperse negative energy and help you to feel at home in your future plans. I have strong personal experience of this lovely iridescent purple stone. 

My partner and I moved home in April this year. We had a worrying time leading up to the move when our first buyer dropped out. We were devastated because we thought we may lose our dream home. 

We were sitting in our old home one evening when we heard a loud bang in the kitchen. 

My wall-rack of crystals was in there. (Photo at left)

On the kitchen floor, the other side of the room, was my Purprite. 

It had leapt across the wide room somehow. 

We kept it by us while the legal process happened - we found a new, better buyer, moved quickly and go £20,000 more than expected for our old house!

3. Your favourite crystal - if you have a crystal with you feel 'at one', regardless of the level of vibration associated with it, then it may be the best one for you to use right now.

As I've said before, you don't need to be an expert - just choose a crystal you like the look of, feel of, colour off. You will have been drawn to those sensation because that crystal is vibrating at the level you need or are in tune with.

Love and Light,
MARTIN

THE HADRIAN's VILLA MOON
THE TAURUS FULL MOON


TONIGHT's Taurus Full Moon is the lunar phase which is called the HADRIAN's VILLA MOON in Antinous Moon Magic.

The Taurus Full Moon best represents home and comfort following the harvest. In the Northern Hemisphere autumnal storms rage and temperatures plummet. 


Crops have been harvested, animals brought in from the meadows. It is time to come in from the cold.

Each lunar phase represents a Divine Spirit or Archetype. The Spirit of the Hadrian's Villa Moon is the Spirit of Home-Sweet-Home. 


This is the Spirit which loves to build a comfy nest, a place to call one's own. Be it ever so humble, there's no place like home for this Spirit. It is the Spirit of the special place which is your home, whether it be a rented room or a sprawling mansion.

This Spirit invites you to step inside, close the door behind you, kick off your shoes and revel in being Home.

The key words during this lunar phase are: Home. Hearth. Comfort. Security. Stability. Nesting. Cocooning. Tradition.

Meditation and magical rituals performed during this lunar phase are well suited to delving into issues concerning your home base, the place or situation where you feel at home and most comfortable. This can involve a house or apartment. It can also be a city or a state of mind.

It can literally refer to your domicile in questions about material matters such as mortgages and repairs.


In a larger sense, the energies which are exalted during this lunar phase concern your spiritual center, your focal point of being.

TRIUMPH OF THE LIBERATOR


ANTINOUS the mortal is dead. Antinous the God is born! 

On this day, October 31st, we surrender ourselves, body and soul, to the joy of Lord Liber, and join in the festival of Halloween, spreading the Love and Liberation of Antinous to the world of the living and the dead. This is the second day of the Ecclesiastic Year.

The festival of Antinous Liberator, the New Dionysus, is the place from which life comes and all love-joy with the ever-present specter of Our Lady death by its side.


The New God Antinous Liberator, sets us free with a wave of his hand. 
He destroys the bondage that holds our immortal spirit prisoner to the cycles of life and death, as the chains of time and matter fall of their own accord.

In benediction, Antinous Liberator confers the flame of Homotheosis upon the hearts of his chosen lovers so that we may indulge and burn in the ecstasy of being One with HIM.

We are free from the masquerade of the spirit in this world of illusion, we are unclothed before him. 


From his lips we drink the winged intoxication of the flesh and abandoned all reason and logic at his feet.

Antinous stands upon the crescent of the Moon. He passes through the Arches of the spheres, the 7 Archons bow down before HIM.

The god-power of Antinous shines over the face of darkness. The Spirits of the Dead awaken to dance as the wine of freedom flows down into the spider-heart of Tartarus.


As Dark as events in the world may become ... a powerful light is shining stronger for Gay, Bi, Lesbian and Transgender people everywhere in the world!


Every day, more and more of us come together,

Every day, the fire of Antinous spreads

His name becomes less a strange, unheard of and difficult to pronounce name from Ancient times ... and more a realization that once there was a time when being gay was a sacred state of being, and that there was a god who represented us, and spoke on our behalf to the immortal powers.

Antinous is with us again ... his power is growing stronger in our hearts.

Antinous is within all of US!

The Blessing of Antinous is with us all!

The Arisen Antinous has Come Again! 

Ave Antinous!

RAMÓN NOVARRO
SAINT OF ANTINOUS


HE was proclaimed a saint of Antinous on the 50th anniversary of his horrific and homophobic murder: gay silent film icon Ramón Novarro ("Ben-Hur," "Mata Hari") was slain by two male hustlers on 30 October 1968 in Hollywood. 

The first Latin American actor to become a superstar, Ramon Novarro was for years one of Hollywood's top actors. 

Born Ramón Samaniego to a prominent Mexican family, he arrived in America in 1916, a refugee from civil wars. 

By the mid-1920s, he had become one of MGM's biggest box office attractions, starring in now-classic films, including "The Student Prince," "Mata Hari," and the original version of "Ben-Hur."

He shared the screen with the era's top leading ladies, such as Greta Garbo, Myrna Loy, Joan Crawford, and Norma Shearer, and became Rudolph Valentino's main rival in the "Latin Lover" category. 

Yet, despite his considerable professional accomplishments, Novarro's enduring hold on fame stems from his tragic death ... his bloodied corpse was found in his house on Halloween 1968 in what has become one of Hollywood's most infamous scandals.

A lifelong bachelor, Novarro carefully cultivated his image as a man deeply devoted to his family and to Catholicism. His murder shattered that persona. 

News reports revealed that the dashing screen hero had not only been gay, but was dead at the hands of two young male hustlers.

Since then, details of his murder have achieved near mythic proportions, obscuring Novarro's professional legacy. 

For a comprehensive look at this saint of Antinous, the book Beyond Paradise presents a full picture of the man who made motion picture history. 

Including original interviews with Novarro's surviving friends, family, co-workers, and the two men convicted of his murder, this biography provides unique insights into an early Hollywood star ... a man whose heart was forever in conflict with his image and whose myth continues to fascinate today.

THE FOUNDING OF ANTINOOPOLIS


ON this day we commemorate the founding of the Sacred City of Antinous, the glorious city of ANTINOOPOLIS in Egypt as it originally was called and later Ansenand Antinoé.

Our Lord Hadrian Augustus, Emperor of Rome, Pontifex Maximus, the New Jupiter, Hercules reborn, consecrated the shore of the Nile where Antinous fell, and solemnly founded the Holy City of Antinoopolis in Egypt in the year 130 AD
.

Antinous had risen again from the depths of Tartarus, he had conquered death and returned to the place of the living.

By Victory and Proclamation, Antinous was elevated to godliness, and the ancient religion of Our God was set in motion. 


The Priesthood of Antinous was ordained, sacred statues and images proliferated, and Temples rose up in every corner of the world, for the glory of Antinous the God.

We exalt in the deification of Antinous, and marvel at his assumption into heaven. 


On this day we concelebrate the Foundation of Antinoopolis by re-founding the sacred city within our hearts, declaring ourselves the New Stones of Antinoopolis. 

With love for Antinous in our hearts, the New Temple of Antinous was founded in 2002, called Ecclesia Antinoi, and the New Priesthood of Antinous initiated.

We recognize the Foundation of Antinoopolis as the first day of the New and Holy Year of Religion of Antinous.

ASTRO FORECAST: OCT. 29th—NOV. 8th, 2020

Antinous Astrology Forecast

OCTOBER 29th to NOVEMBER 8th, 2020


THURSDAY, OCTOBER 29th, 2020

This week, retrograde Mercury backs into Libra for the second time this year even as Venus flies forward into Libra. Retrograde Mercury in Libra makes it more difficult to make decisions, and any decision you make is likely to be the wrong decision ... until Mercury turns around and starts going forward again on Election Day November 3rd, when your decision will really count! Depending on your own star sign, Libra Mercury and Libra Venus may cause you some difficulty making decisions and getting work done and generally finding your way through the highways and byways of life. Libra Mercury/Venus gets a bad reputation for being lazy, indecisive, two-faced and a downright liar. But it's not true! Well, actually, it IS a bit true ... but also not true ... both true and not true at the same time.

And that is exactly how Libra Mercury/Venus sees everything ... they see both sides to every question ... they sees two people (or two nations) arguing and they see that both sides are partly right ... and both sides are also partly wrong.

Libra Mercury/Venus help to give you a balanced view of the world. They enhance your skills at mediating a compromise which is beneficial to both sides ... and beneficial to you. Libra Mercury/Venus love harmony and balance so much that they try to please everybody. So you may find yourself tacitly agreeing with people on both sides of an argument. That infuriates both sides, of course, and both sides accuse you of being two-faced.

In fact, you may not have agreed with either side. You wanted to tell both sides to take a hike. You only nodded in tacit agreement just to shut them up and avert open conflict. The result is that you end up being caught in the middle ... a plight that Sun Sign Librans know all too well.

So the down side of Libra Mercury/Venus is that decision-making is more difficult. You look at a restaurant menu and it ALL looks so good that you can't make up your mind ... again, a plight that Sun Sign Librans know all too well.

But the up side of Libra Mercury/Venus is that you are open to new experiences ... you pick a menu item you have never eaten before ... and it turns out to be delicious. You are driving along your regular route home from work and suddenly turn off down another street you have never explored before ... and you discover places which turn out to be wonderful.

As for being lazy ... that is also partly false ... and yet also partly true. Libra Mercury/Venus are very industrious when it comes to something that is interesting, pleasant or lovely. So you may find yourself beavering away at some fabulous project with your mind and soul concentrated solely on that fab project.

Meanwhile, boring and tedious tasks fall by the wayside. You may conveniently "forget" to do things which are uninteresting to you. Mercury Libra/Venus are the artistic genius who creates the most exquisitely inspiring art ... and yet who lives in absolute squalor and filth. Art is intensely interesting to them ... but housekeeping is intensely boring, so they "forget" to do any house cleaning. Sun Sign Librans are experts at "forgetting" unpleasant or uninteresting things.

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 30th, 2020

Earthquakes. Revolutions. Love (or lust) at first sight. This week sudden and abrupt change can occur with Earth-shattering results when the Sun is in 180-degree opposition to rebellious Uranus. This configuration occurs once a year and always brings unexpected and exciting encounters or events which shake up the world ... including your own personal world. Adapting to any changes requires extra effort, and any excitement may leave your nerves frayed. These unexpected and quite possibly unwanted changes can manifest in yourself, through a partner, or through an external event. Although initially upsetting and you may resist any change, it may offer a better way forward for you if you keep an open mind. You may anticipate something new on the horizon or feel nervous anxiety. Think about doing something out of the ordinary to satisfy your curiosity, otherwise the electric and spontaneous energy may escape in a destructive way such as a minor accident. Odd behavior or a radical about face in someone close to you may cause anxiety too. They may be looking for more personal freedom and any resistance or dominance from you would further encourage any rebelliousness. Arguments or separation may result from impatience or an inability on your part to adapt. It is possible now that someone new may enter your life who brings about much-needed change.

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 31st, 2020

On Halloween 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.

SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 1st, 2020

On Sunday, Retrograde Mercury squares off to Saturn. Some old issues which you thought had been resolved long ago suddenly resurface to plague you. Dark thoughts and bad memories plague you with forebodings of ill omens.

MON-WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 2nd-4th, 2020

The big news this week is that on Election Day November 3rd, Retrograde Mercury does an about-face and starts going forward again as seen from Earth, ending three weeks of Retrograde "backwards" travel. That bodes well for the election outcome. Mercury going backwards creates this sort of impish mayhem with matters concerning communications, documents and money. Misplaced tickets, keys, "lost" computer files, letters and packages which vanish into postal limbo ... all are typical of Retrograde Mercury. The "lost" things turn up again as if by magic when Mercury goes Direct again. A skilled astrologer, Hadrian no doubt amazed his courtiers by accurately predicting when some "lost" document or wayward courier message would finally re-appear out of no where.

THURS-FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 5th-6th, 2020

Overnight Thursday-Friday, Mercury squares off to Saturn, for the second time this week. Mercury is no longer retrograde, but Saturn still is retrograde. So some old issues which you thought had been resolved long ago suddenly resurface to plague you. Dark thoughts and bad memories plague you with forebodings of ill omens.

SAT-SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 7th-8th, 2020

This weekend, we come to the Leo Third Quarter Moon, which is called the BACCHANALIA MOON in Antinous Moon Magic for its gifts of transcendence ... This Lunar Phase reflects those festivals of peering into other worlds and states of being ... a restless time of high-spirited indulgence, sometimes fun, sometimes slightly scary and always capable of unleashing powerful spirits ... On a mundane level, it refers to putting on a disguise and "having a good time". On a spiritual level, it refers to entering an altered state to commune with the divine, thus this Lunar Phase is the best time of the year for trance visions.

SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:

Another exciting week lies ahead between November 9th and 15th when we come to the SCORPIO NEW MOON. In Antinous Moon Magic this lunar phase is called the ZELUS MOON of fear, angst and anxiety ... and using Antinous Moon Magic to triumph over fear ... More details next time ....
