JAN. 31 to FEB. 10, 2013
THURSDAY January 31st 2013
Thursday looks like the brightest day of the week when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD forms happy trines with Jupiter and the Sun and goes opposite to unpredictable Uranus. An impromptu visit or unexpected message could brighten your day.
FRIDAY February 1st 2013
On Friday Mars leaves its home base in Aries and dives into Pisces ... this is like lava dropping into the sea — lots of steam and boiling. In watery Pisces, Mars's fiery impulsive energy is converted to steamy dreams and hot emotions. For the next six weeks, your artistic endeavours will get a big energy boost from Mars. But just remember that any assertive decision-making can be skewed by your emotional bias.
SATURDAY February 2nd 2013
When you wake up Saturday morning you may feel an irresistible urge to check your social network even before you get out of bed — Venus has left dry Capricorn and is now in socially interactive Aquarius. The coming month is idea for exploring the vastness of cyberworlds in search of the ultimate interactive relationship.
SUNDAY February 3rd 2013
On Sunday you will feel like you are on an emotional roller-coaster when the Sun and Moon square off for the SCORPIO THIRD QUARTER MOON — in Antinous Moon Magic this is the PERDITION MOON of loss and mourning. Meditations and rituals conducted during this Lunar Phase are best suited for coming to terms with loss — and also for finding lost objects. During this moon you may suddenly find something you thought was lost and gone forever ....
MONDAY February 4th 2013
On Monday Mars aligns with Neptune in dreamy Pisces to conjure up potentially scary demons — phantoms which turn out to be guardian angels in disguise. Fiery Mars in conjunction with Neptune in watery Pisces is like lava dropping into the sea — lots of steam and boiling. In watery Pisces, Mars's fiery impulsive energy is converted to steamy dreams and hot emotions. For the next six weeks, your artistic endeavours will get a big energy boost from Mars. But just remember that any assertive decision-making can be skewed by your emotional bias.
TUESDAY February 5th 2013
On Tuesday your daydreams intensify when Mercury leaves ambitious Aries and enters dreamy Pisces. And because Mercury goes Retrograde later this month, Mercury will languish in languid Pisces for two whole months — instead of the usual three weeks that Mercury spends in any given sign. Like Mars (also in Pisces right now), rational Mercury is intensely uncomfortable in intuitive Pisces. On the plus side, those of you who are sensitive can flex your spiritual muscles. Most people will be highly confused and plagued by fears of "losing it" for the duration of this Mars/Mercury sojourn in Pisces.
WEDNESDAY February 6th 2013
On Wednesday don't be surprised when an unexpected flirt turns into something serious when Venus forms a sexy sextile with surprise-filled Uranus even as ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD forms sextiles with Mercury and Neptune. Dreamy Neptune is cancelling out Mercury's attempts to rationalize things — so just let your emotions guide you on this encounter.
THURSDAY February 7th 2013
On Thursday you will want to let love hold sway when Venus forms a generous trine with lucky Jupiter. You won't be able to think too much about what you "should" be doing because rational Mercury is aligned in conjunction with Neptune in Pisces. Dreamy Neptune is cancelling out Mercury's attempts to rationalize things — so just let your emotions do their thing.
FRIDAY February 8th 2013
On Friday the work week ends on an argumentative note when Mercury and Mars align in conjunction in foggy Pisces. Rational Mercury and fiery Mars both feel highly uncomfortable in intuitive Pisces. People tend to take themselves too seriously and put their own interests ahead of others' — and go to any lengths to assert their selfish aims.
SATURDAY/SUNDAY February 9th/10th 2013
Overnight Saturday/Sunday we come to one of the most joyous New Moons — the AQUARIUS NEW MOON — which in Antinous Moon Magic we call OBELISK MOON — the lunar phase embodying knowledge in all its forms, knowledge which is gained through study and learning. The Aquarius New Moon is also always CHINESE NEW YEAR and this is the Year of the Fire Snake. And because 2013 is a Water Year in Chinese Astrology, this mixture of fire and water will create lots of steam and boiling — as underscored in Western Astrology by fiery Mars being in watery Pisces right now. The Chinese New Year will be volatile to be sure.
SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:
Another exciting week lies ahead between February 11th and 17th when you must be sure to finalize all contracts and binding commitments and major expenditures before Mercury goes Retrograde on February 23rd. More details next time ....
