ASTRO FORECAST: APRIL 20th—MAY 7th, 2017

Antinous Astrology Forecast

APRIL 20 to MAY 7, 2017


THURSDAY, April 20th, 2017

On Thursday your brain is ablaze with often confusing and conflicting ideas when Retrograde 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.

FRIDAY, April 21st, 2017

On Friday, Mars leaves stodgy Taurus and charges into Gemini. Gemini Mars is very reckless with little details like the truth, preferring ham-fisted propaganda and outright lies instead. Mars is in Gemini from now until June 4, 2017. This is the period of 2017 with the most energy, enthusiasm and determination.

SAT-SUNDAY, April 22-23, 2017

This weekend, Venus is in a 90-degree right-angle square to stubborn Saturn ... for the third and final time this year. Both planets have been Retrograde (going "backwards" as seen from Earth), and this is the third time this year that they have been in a square configuration. Venus-square-Saturn means that relationship discussions are fraught with stumbling blocks. And because Venus and Saturn also have a role to play in money and business, you can expect problems in that area as well. Think back to what happened on 27th January ... and again on 8th April ... when these two planets were in a square configuration. The problems that cropped up then will be revisited ... and now is your third and final opportunity to resolve them.

MON-TUESDAY, April 24-25, 2017

This week starts off on an industrious note when Retrograde Mercury forms a brilliant and glowing trine aspect with Retrograde Saturn which empowers you with perseverance (Saturn) and clear forms of expression (Mercury) to make some serious long-term plans for the future. Because both planets are Retrograde (going "backwards" as seen from Earth), preparations you made in the past will begin to yield results.

WEDNESDAY, April 26th, 2017

On Wednesday ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD aligns with the Sun in Taurus for the TAURUS NEW MOON the MARCUS AURELIUS MOON because he was a man of judicious might and justice, a warrior and a poet, a man whose reign was called a Golden Age. The TAURUS NEW MOON highlights Taurean qualities (determined, practical, devoted, grounded, dependable) and 2nd House themes (material security, values, self-worth). On a spiritual/higher plane, the New Moon in Taurus seeks inner peace through stability and contentment.

THURSDAY, April 27th, 2017

On Thursday the most outrageous statements turn out to be absolutely true when Mercury aligns in conjunction with impetuous Uranus in Aries. A politician will say something which sounds far too unbelievable to be true. Believe it! This is the kind of day serendipitous miracles occur. A miracle is something that seems impossible but happens anyway.

FRIDAY, April 28th, 2017

On Friday Venus leaves dreamy and romantic Pisces and charges into hot and horny Aries .. for the second time this year ... after having gone Retrograde during March and early April. Sitting in front of your computer wistfully fantasizing about Mr. Right suddenly gives way to the urge to go out and find him ... and not stop until you have found him. Aries Venus can be overly assertive and me-firsty in relationships. But if you are congenitally shy and retiring, this means you may finally work up the audacity to stand up for yourself ... and about time, too. But move now because Venus leaves Aries on June 6th to settle down in placid and docile Taurus, where Venus prefers the comforts of home.

SAT-TUESDAY, April 29-May 2, 2017

These four days are ruled by the Leo First Quarter Moon. It is the Lunar Phase in Antinous Moon Magic which we call the SCARAB MOON of miracles and wish-fulfillment. Meditations and rituals carried out tonight can result in an unexpected breakthrough. Eureka! Unanticipated solution. Fortuitous surprise. Sudden change for the better. Plucking victory from the jaws of defeat. An oracle reading or meditative trance can produce a sudden answer for transformation of a bad situation into something profitable.

WED-THURSDAY, May 3-4, 2017

Aren't you tired of all the computer glitches, "lost" files, travel delays and snafus of recent weeks? Take heart! Now Mercury does an about-face and starts going forward again as seen from Earth, ending three weeks of Retrograde "backwards" travel. So you can safely message friends and co-workers a prediction that certain "lost" computer files or parcels will show up by the time they go to work the next morning. 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.

FRI-SUNDAY, May 5-7, 2017

This weekend the cosy Taurus Sun forms a dreamy sextile aspect to intuitive Neptune, inviting you to reflect introspectively about how this year is going so far, and to start dreaming about how the rest of the year may turn out. This is the perfect evening for oracle games, scrying, dream-scaping and fortune-telling.

SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:

Another exciting week lies ahead between May 8th and 14th when we come to the Scorpio Full Moon ... a moon for penetrating the veil of lies and illusion and seeing clearly who are your friends (and who are not) and also seeing yourself for what you are. For that reason, we call it the ENEMY MOON in Antinous Moon Magic ... More details next time ....

ANTINOUS SAYS 'OPEN YOUR EYES'
TO YOUR OWN DIVINE LIGHT



TODAY Retrograde Mercury aligns in conjunction 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.

THIS MOON RITUAL WORKS WONDERS
By Our Crystal Meditation Advisor Martin Campbell



TONIGHT is the SPRING BLUE MOON when we discover, or rediscover, the child within ourselves.

It is similar to the New Moon, so why don't you try my New Moon Ritual?

Every New Moon my love Soman and I write down our intentions and aspirations for the coming moon phase. 

We stand under the moon and read an incantation over them asking for the blessing of the goddess.

We then place them under the pillows we sleep on until the next Full Moon ... in two weeks' time.

Then we read an incantation of thanks and offering while burning the intentions in a cauldron. I then soak the ashes in water and sprinkle them around the base of our roses. 

Our intentions almost always come true and our roses are magnificent. Last year, one orange rose was still flowering in mid November!

So tonight might be a very good night to start such a cycle for yourselves folks!

Love and Moon Light
MARTIN

THE SPRING BLUE MOON OF 2017



TONIGHT we come to the second Capricorn Third Quarter Moon in succession, which we call the SPRING BLUE MOON. 

This is the second Capricorn Third Quarter Moon in succession. 

In the Southern Hemisphere, it is the Autumn Blue Moon.

Whether Springtime or Autumn, you should remember your inner child. Regardless of your age, rediscover the sense of wonder, curiosity and magic you had as a child. 

Perhaps you have forgotten how wonderful life can be. 

Perhaps you have forgotten how to play like a child. Rediscover the joy and fun you had as a child. You are never too old to have fun and to be joyful.

ASTRO FORECAST: APRIL 13th—23rd, 2017

Antinous Astrology Forecast

APRIL 13th to 23rd, 2017


THURS-SUNDAY, April 13-16, 2017

Get ready for a big surprise! Once a year the Sun aligns with impetuous Uranus ... and that configuration dominates this entire week This year the Sun aligns in conjunction with Uranus in fiery Aries. Aries is a sign which shoots first and asks questions later. Rage issues are always bubbling under the surface. This Sun-conjunction-Uranus configuration means you can expect long-simmering crises on the home front or in global affairs to erupt with appalling ferocity. On the positive side, stubborn problems can blow apart and be resolved almost instantly. On the negative side, however, you can expect dangerous political explosions ... perhaps even literal bombs and explosions.

MONDAY, April 17th, 2017

On Monday, open your heart to the power of love! Venus and Mars form a powerful sextile configuration. This magical Venus-sextile-Mars moment occurs only twice a year. It is possible now to take a balanced approach to conflict, problems and projects that require effort. This can combine both a gentle touch and firm action, sensitivity and forcefulness. Negotiation and interaction with others could be aggressive and determined now, but also balanced with sensitivity and style. Any expressions of anger, frustration or discontent are more likely to be tempered with fairness, moderation and composure. On the spiritual level, you are able to balance the masculine and feminine energies of your soul to create a beautiful whole.

TUESDAY, April 18th, 2017

On Tuesday, the Sun forms a brilliant and glowing trine aspect with Saturn which empowers you with perseverance and clear vision to make some serious long-term plans for the future.

WEDNESDAY, April 19th, 2017

On Wednesday, we come to the second Capricorn Third Quarter Moon in succession, which we call the SPRING BLUE MOON. This is the second Capricorn Third Quarter Moon in succession. In Antinous Moon Magic, we call the Capriicorn Third Quarter Moon the HADRIAN'S WALL MOON of stubborn intransigence and immovable barriers. Each Lunar Phase represents a Divine Spirit or Archetype. The Spirit of the Hadrian's Wall Lunar Phase is the embodiment of hindrances and blockages. It represents the barriers that stand in your way. It is all barriers and obstacles to progress. Meditations and rituals conducted on this night are best suited for focusing on blockages in your life, situations and issues which prevent you from moving forward. These can be manifested by persons or situations around you. But most often, we find during meditations on this night that we have erected prison walls around ourselves, we are blocking ourselves from the freedom we so earnestly desire. This SPRING BLUE MOON Lunar Phase is saying it is time to tear down those barriers and to break out!

THURSDAY, April 20th, 2017

AMETHYST FOR THE ORATOR MOON
By Our Crystal Meditation Advisor Martin Campbell



ALL relationships need diplomacy and an amicable balance. It is not necessarily easy to achieve. 

I am advised by our astrology expert Hernestus that this Libra Full Moon of diplomacy and balance is the ORATOR MOON  ... A moon where the ability to communicate clearly will be enhanced. 

A moment to erase past woes and use balanced, tactful communication to resolve problems - especially within relationships. I, therefore, recommend that you meditate during this moon using the following crystals.

Amethyst - One of my regular recommendations - a beautiful multi-purpose crystal or gemstone. As you relax after an internal battle with your emotions you will want a feeling of resolution. Among many other attributes Amethyst can help you get rid of negative energy and thoughts. It can also help you transition to a new state of being. 

Iron Pyrite - These metallic crystals can help you to see behind the facades that people put up in relationships to hide their true feelings. It also helps you to use diplomacy and tact to achieve a positive outcome.

Snow Quartz - These lovely, milky stones help to enhance tact and diplomacy - to think before you speak.

Love and Light
MARTIN

THE LIBRA FULL MOON
THE ANTINOUS ORATOR MOON


TONIGHT's Libra Full Moon is the Orator Moon of diplomacy and balanced thinking in Antinous Moon Magic.

This is the perfect time for fulfilling dreams of finding just the right partner, the person who balances out your needs and desires perfectly. 


But remember that diplomacy is the key.

Each Lunar Phase represents a Divine Spirit or Archetype. 


The Spirit of the Orator Moon is the embodiment of articulate expression in all forms and in all media, whether spoken, written or visual. 

We borrow the image of the Roman orator ... a person skilled in the fine art (for it is an art) of using gesture, vocal inflection, intonation, precise enunciation, skillful selection of terms and every other skill at their disposal to convey thought in a persuasive manner.

When you are at a loss for words, the Orator Spirit enters your mind and gives you the words you need.

This is the Spirit of persuasion and conviction. It is the Spirit of teaching and elucidating, of getting an important point across to others.

The Libra Full Moon is the moon of balancing out extremes, diplomacy, fairness, justice.

Meditations and rituals carried out tonight are best suited for finding areas in your life which are out of balance. Perhaps you have allowed yourself to become a "doormat" for others, or you relinquish authority over yourself to others needlessly. 


Or perhaps you are domineering and insensitive to the needs of others. 

Because Libra involves interpersonal relationships, you may find that it is time to end a relationship which has outlived its purpose and which you have become stuck in solely out of a misplaced sense of loyalty or politeness ... or simply out of habit. 

The Orator Moon offers you a way to negotiate an end to the relationship ... politely yet definitively ... for the benefit of both sides.
