TONIGHT's Aquarius First Quarter Moon is the Lunar Phase in Antinous Moon Magic which we call the altruistic and magnanimous CONCORDIA MOON.
Each Lunar Phase represents a Divine Spirit or Archetype. The Spirit of the the Concordia Moon is the embodiment of Reconciliation. It is the great diplomat, the peace-maker, the reconciler, the consensus seeker. It is the embodiment of understanding, mutual rapport, solidarity, team spirit, cooperation, reciprocity and peaceful coexistence.
It is the pleasure of shaking hands after having fought a good fight. It is the warm embrace of kissing and making up after a dispute.
It is the joy of reuniting with old friends after a long hiatus. It is the embodiment of the US festival called Thanksgiving, which normally occurs near the cycle of the Concordia Moon.
Coins minted during the reign of the Divine Hadrian often show his profile on the obverse or front side, and the goddess Concordia on the reverse side. Essentially, Hadrian was saying that diplomacy and peaceable relations were the backbone of the Roman Empire during his reign, rather than sheer military might which had characterized Rome up until then.
In Antinous Moon Magic, the cycle of the Concordia Moon is well suited for meditations and rituals aimed at resolving thorny problems and seeking just and amicable solutions to interpersonal strife.
