THE CAPRICORN NEW MOON
THE ANTINOUS LAMIA MOON



TONIGHT's Capricorn New Moon is the lunar phase which in Antinous Moon Magic is called the LAMIA MOON of dark magic.

Meditation and rituals conducted tonight are best suited for rooting out malaise and sickness and for diminishing evil sendings. Look for areas in your life where you may be detrimental to yourself, may be working against yourself or may be making yourself sick, perhaps literally so.

The Lamia Moon helps you to focus on those areas and drain them of their debilitating energies. It helps you to look squarely at yourself to see what is draining you of your vitality ... so that you can chart a course towards healing and recovery ... rather than further diminishment.

Each Lunar Phase represents a Divine Spirit or Archetype. The Spirit of the Lamia Moon is vicious negativity which attacks vitality. It is the Spirit of torment which seeks to dissipate and weaken. It is malaise and malevolence.

The spirit of the Lamia Moon incorporates all negativity of body and soul. It is destructive thought patterns. It is the instigator of bad habits which impair not only physical health but also mental or spiritual health.

It is sickness in the broadest sense, but it is by no means limited to physical ailment. It is a disease of the spirit. It is the debilitating failure to shake off a "sick" situation.

However, the spirit of the Lamia Moon also has the incredible ability to "sicken" and diminish harmful forces.

Just as a poison can cure, and just as a vaccine uses disease cells to build immunity to those very cells, the Lamia Moon spirit has the ability to weaken forces which are detrimental. It is the spirit of your body's immune system, waging a ceaseless and merciless battle against intruders.

The Lamia Moon spirit is debilitating and it is cruel. Yes, the Lamia spirit can be harmful, but it can also be a vital ally. 


All meditations and rituals conducted during the cycle of the Capricorn New Moon are best aimed at enlisting this spirit to be your valiant ally in helping you to identify those inner areas of yourself which are weakening you from the inside out.

Astro Forecast: DEC. 26, 2013—JAN. 5, 2014

Antinous Astrology Forecast

DEC. 26 to JAN. 5, 2014


THURSDAY DECEMBER 26th 2013

On Thursday the Earth will quake (perhaps literally) when Mars and Uranus are in opposition. Mars in Libra bristles at convention and diplomacy. Uranus in Aries wants to create havoc just for the sake of change. On the global level, this configuration causes earthquakes, wars and revolutions. On the personal level, it is a recipe for family feuds. If you are home alone for Christmas, you should count yourself lucky because ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD puts the thumb screws on with tense aspects to Mars, Uranus, Pluto and Jupiter. Many astrologers have warned all year that this will be the most dreadful week of 2013. Normally, we refrain from alarmism, but we would caution you to be exceedingly careful ... choose your words carefully at family fest gatherings, drive carefully on the roads, be careful and vigilant in crowds. A very trusted astrologer friend of ours quite frankly says that people who are home alone for Christmas should count themselves lucky ... and keep a low profile until December 28th, when the configurations are more auspicious.


FRIDAY DECEMBER 27th 2013

On Friday there is no let-up in the tremors and reverberations which began on Christmas Day when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD squares off against Venus and forms a trine with unfocused Neptune. It will be difficult to concentrate on work and it will be especially difficult to tell if people around you are being truthful or deceitful. On the other hand, these configurations are advantageous for meditation and card readings and other year-end oracle work. Let your unfocused mind drift.


SATURDAY DECEMBER 28th 2013

On Saturday the worst of the week's stress and tension is over. The quakes and aftershocks are over. In fact, if you were unable to take part in Yule celebrations on December 25th, you can rest assured that Saturday will be a day far better suited for festivities than the 25th was. On Saturday ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD is in good configurations to Mercury, the Sun, Pluto and Jupiter, which is a nice Yuletide present for you, albeit belated.


SUNDAY DECEMBER 29th 2013

On Sunday the holiday hangover is over when Mercury aligns with the Sun in sober Capricorn to get you started with the post-Christmas clean-up and get you started organizing your calendar for 2014.


MONDAY DECEMBER 30th 2013

On Monday your best intentions for clearing up all the accumulated holiday work from your desk is thwarted constantly by interruptions and unpleasant surprises. Blame a 90-degree square angle between the Capricorn Sun and Aries Uranus.


TUESDAY DECEMBER 31st 2013

On New Year's Eve the fireworks will not be restricted to the sky — you can also expect explosive situations in your personal life when Mars squares off against Pluto and Mercury gets into the fray by aligning with Pluto, both of them at odds with the war god. Tensions on this New Year's Eve will be running especially hot because ....


WEDNESDAY JANUARY 1st 2014

... because overnight New Year's Day the Sun and Moon pass by Pluto on their way to form the Capricorn New Moon ... the lunar phase which in Antinous Moon Magic is called the LAMIA MOON of dark magic. Meditation and rituals conducted tonight are best suited for rooting out malaise and sickness and for diminishing evil sendings. Look for areas in your life where you may be detrimental to yourself, may be working against yourself or may be making yourself sick, perhaps literally so.


THURSDAY JANUARY 2nd 2014

On Thursday you will feel like getting together with friends and co-workers when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD forms positive aspects to industrial Saturn and convivial Venus. That is a good recipe for banishing the post-holiday blues.


FRIDAY JANUARY 3rd 2014

On Friday you might seriously want to consider taking the day off from work and hiding under the bed when the stubborn Capricorn Sun is at right angles to aggressive Mars and equally stubborn Capricorn Mercury is in 180-degree opposition to exaggeration-prone Jupiter. Tempers will flare as people dig in their heels for life-or-death arguments and disputes about even the most trivial matters.


SATURDAY JANUARY 4th 2014

On Saturday you can't blame anybody but yourself if weekend chores don't come off right. Well, you could blame ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD for forming a square aspect to Saturn before then moving on into a conjunction alignment with dreamy Neptune. Instead of clearing out old magazines and newspapers, you find yourself sitting down in a pile of them and reading old articles ... and getting no work done.


SUNDAY JANUARY 5th 2014

On Sunday your expectations exceed by far your realistic hopes of attaining those expectations when the Sun and Jupiter are in opposition to each other. This configuration occurs once a year and tends to put a damper on optimism ... for 24 hours ... until the Sun moves on. Just just wait a day. Your expectations will be more in tune with your capabilities in a day or so.


SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:

Another exciting week lies ahead between January 6th and 12th when we come to the Aries First Quarter Moon. It is the Lunar Phase we call the INVICTUS MOON, the Antinous Moon Magic spirit of Mithras ... the Invictus Moon is a beacon which dispels darkness and casts out shadows. It illuminates all dark corners and puts light on the deepest and darkest secrets. It brings everything out into daylight and sends creatures of darkness scurrying for shelter .... More details next time ....

THE ANTINOUS CROSSROADS MOON
THE LIBRA THIRD QUARTER MOON


TONIGHT's Libra Third Quarter Moon is the lunar phase we call the CROSSROADS MOON in Antinous Moon Magic. It is symbolized by the "Herme" shown here, the ithyphallic stele of Mercury which guarded intersections of Roman roads.

Tonight is a propitious time for setting a new course, possibly changing course, setting out in a new direction. It is about making a decision. The key is not to worry about which choice to make. The key is to make a choice and go ahead with it. 

Each Lunar Phase represents a Divine Spirit or Archetype. The Spirit of the Crossroads Moon the decision-making capability of Antinous/Mercury. It is the spirit of making choices, weighing options and then choosing one. 

This Crossroads lunar spirit is the guardian at the crossroads who admonishes travelers not to dither nor tary, not to avoid making a decision. He is the guardian who presents travelers with alternatives. He does not care whether the right choice is made, but only insists that some choice is made. 

He personifies the roads, streets and highways in life, both literal and figurative. He also represents the network of veins and arteries in your body along which oxygen-enriched blood flows to every organ. 

And this spirit is the embodiment of any parting of the ways. He is the turning point and the divining rod who shows the way ahead.

Tonight is ideal for carrying out meditations and rituals aimed at making decisions or deciding what course of action to take. Because this lunar phase occurs in December or January, it is an ideal time for taking stock of the old year and making decisions for the new year.

Astro Forecast December 19—29, 2013

Antinous Astrology Forecast

DECEMBER 19 to 29, 2013


THURSDAY DECEMBER 19th 2013

On Thursday fortune smiles on you when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD aligns in conjunction with lucky Jupiter and forms a nice trine with productive Saturn. Work will be easy and will fly by fast.


FRIDAY DECEMBER 20th 2013

On Friday the work week comes to a happy-go-lucky end when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD goes opposite Venus and forms a nice sextile with Mars. This is a recipe for a party atmosphere. You may find it hard to get much work done, because of all the gossip and conviviality. But after work, you can really get down and boogie.


SATURDAY DECEMBER 21st 2013

On Saturday we come to the December Solstice. Check out the nearly 2,500 members of the brotherhood of worshipers of Antinous at the ANTINOUS THE GAY GOD FACEBOOK PAGE and you see there are people in South Wales (UK) and New South Wales (Australia). There are people in Sao Paulo and Sydney. There are people in California and Cape Town, and there are some in Portland Oregon and Portland Maine.

For some of us the days are getting shorter and Winter is approaching. For others of us the days are getting longer and Summer is on the way. For our brothers in Brazil and South Africa and Australia, the jacarandas are in bloom and the days are hot and balmy. Sydneysiders are bracing for another bush fire season.

For our brothers here in Britain and Europe, the days are short and almost completely sunless and the scent of roasted chestnuts and mulled wine fills the air from vendors on city streets.

For our brothers in the US and Canada, ice storms and the icy fear of economic disaster have put a chill on this Solstice Season.

Wherever we are, regardless of the season, Antinous the Gay God looks into our hearts.

And it is all happening at this magical moment. Twice a year there is a moment — in fact, a few days — when the sun seems to "stand still" in the heavens. From the Latin "sol stasis" we derive our name for these events: solstices.

That's the very odd thing about this blue marble upon which we live. The Solstice occurs at the same moment everywhere. But the hands on the clocks point to 23 different hours. And in some places it signals the start of summer (though the days start getting shorter), while in others the it signals the start of winter (though the days start getting longer).

But it is really the same moment and we are all living and breathing at this same moment, though we live in places where the hands of the clock point in all different directions. Each of us is alone. All of us are together in this aloneness. It is the same phenomenon. But how you see it depends on how you look at it.

The days are getting longer. The days are getting shorter. It all depends on how you look at it.

However you look at it, remember that we are all brothers, lovers and comrades. And we are all turning, turning toward our own true delight.


SUNDAY DECEMBER 22nd 2013

On Sunday love planet Venus turns around and goes backwards (as seen from Earth) for 40 days, until January 31st. Venus Retrograde periods are times when we re-assess what — and who — we value. The conventional rule of thumb is that Retrograde Venus is inauspicious for getting married or starting a new relationship. Major financial undertakings are not advised during this period either. However ... you can go ahead and sign that marriage license or job contract ... if you made the commitment (to job or relationship) prior to the start of the Venus Retrograde cycle. Because Retrograde Venus is about "back tracking," you can expect to hear from old friends and ex-lovers between now and the end of January. You may not have seen them for years, and suddenly they show up on your doorstep ... and the two of you have a wonderful time reviving old memories ... and possibly reconciling old differences. In fact, Retrograde Venus periods are often characterized by old lovers getting back together and re-marrying.


MONDAY DECEMBER 23rd 2013

On Monday the Solstice week gets off to a rocky start when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD is in tense aspects to Neptune and Pluto. It will take all your willpower and chillpower not to get wrapped up in holiday stress and anxiety.


TUESDAY DECEMBER 24th 2013

On Tuesday, the night before Christmas, all will indeed be quiet and all through the house not a creature will be stirring, not even a mouse ... when Mercury leaves bumptious Sagittarius and enters stolid and sensible Capricorn, as meanwhile the Sun forms a gentle sextile with dreamy Neptune. Enjoy the lull ... because horrific configurations are on the way.


WEDNESDAY DECEMBER 25th 2013

On Wednesday, Christmas Day, the Earth will quake (perhaps literally) when Mars and Uranus are in opposition. Mars in Libra bristles at convention and diplomacy. Uranus in Aries wants to create havoc just for the sake of change. On the global level, this configuration causes earthquakes, wars and revolutions. On the personal level, it is a recipe for family feuds. If you are home alone for Christmas, you should count yourself lucky because ...

... because also on Christmas Day we come to the Libra Third Quarter Moon. This is the lunar phase we call the CROSSROADS MOON in Antinous Moon Magic. It is symbolized by the "Herme", the ithyphallic stele of Mercury which guarded intersections of Roman roads. Tonight is ideal for carrying out meditations and rituals aimed at making decisions or deciding what course of action to take. Because this lunar phase always occurs in December or January, it is an ideal time for taking stock of the old year and making decisions for the new year.


THURSDAY DECEMBER 26th 2013

On Thursday the aftershocks from the Christmas Day quakes (both literally and around the family Yule tree) continue to send tremors through your life as ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD puts the thumb screws on with tense aspects to Mars, Uranus, Pluto and Jupiter. Many astrologers have warned all year that this will be the most dreadful week of 2013. Normally, we refrain from alarmism, but we would caution you to be exceedingly careful ... choose your words carefully at family fest gatherings, drive carefully on the roads, be careful and vigilant in crowds. A very trusted astrologer friend of ours quite frankly says that people who are home alone for Christmas should count themselves lucky ... and keep a low profile until December 28th, when the configurations are more auspicious.

THE GEMINI FULL MOON
THE CATAMITUS MOON OF ANTINOUS



TONIGHT's Gemini Full Moon is the CATAMITUS MOON in Antinous Moon Magic, the moon signaling where change will occur in your life during the coming year.

Each Lunar Phase represents a Divine Spirit or Archetype. The Spirit of the Catamitus Moon is the Winds of Change.

This is the Spirit who is carried away by the Divine, just as Ganymede (Catamitus to the Romans) was carried away by Zeus/Jupiter. This Spirit is plucked and uprooted and is carried off to other realms.

The ancients often compared the relationship of Hadrian and Antinous to that of Jupiter and Catamitus/Ganymede, the beautiful youth who so enraptured Jupiter that the king of the Gods swooped down from Olympus in the form of an eagle and carried Ganymede off to be at his side forever, serving as his cup bearer.


The Constellation of Antinous replaced that of Ganymede upon the divinization of Antinous. At this time of year the Sun is moving inexorably towards this constellation.

This lunar cycle represents is the Spirit which seeks out new horizons simply for sake of change. 


This Spirit revels in change for change's sake.

This Spirit knows that existence without change is stagnation and death.

Life is an ever-evolving cycle of waxing and waning, winning and losing, breathing in and breathing out, ceaseless change.

This is a powerfully magical moon for working gay magical spells in the Gemini areas of friendships, finances and getting in contact with prospective lovers.

PRIEST HERNESTUS UNVEILS
THE ANTINOUS MOON MAGIC BEADS


THERE are Catholic rosary beads, Eastern Orthodox beads, Swedish Lutheran Fr√§lserkransen beads, Islamic prayer beads, Buddhist meditation beads, Hindu japa mala beads and even Wiccan prayer beads ... now several adherents of Antinous are designing prayer beads.

Earlier we unveiled the FLAMEN ANTONIUS SUBIA PRAYER BEADS.

Today we show you the beads designed by Priest Hernestus ... his "Antinous Moon Magic" beads.

They consist of 52 beads symbolizing the 52 primary annual lunar phases, each of which represents a specific archetypal spirit in Antinous Moon Magic. 

In addition, there are some 30 additional beads representing various major "Saints of Antinous," "Blessed Souls of Antinous" and also what Hernestus calls his "Sorgenkinder" (German for "special needs children") ... beads for persons or situations which require urgent spiritual attention.

The beads have a very Egyptian flavor, reflecting the mysteries of the Land of the Nile where Antinous died and was deified. The strand has beads of quartz crystal, amber, carneol, turquoise and red-green glass.

A gold filigree Egyptian ankh with six semi-precious gemstones dangles from the keystone bead at the end of the strand ... a bead which Hernestus calls the "Rekhenef" bead symbolizing the KA of the prayer beads.

Each bead represents a particular lunar phase of the year or saint or individual person/situation. 

The strand is over three feet long ... nearly one meter long. 

The length means that it variously can be worn around the neck during most hours of the day or wrapped around the wrist during intensive prayer or spell work.

"During the cycle of a lunar phase, of course, I meditate on that particular moon," says Priest Hernestus. 

"But the whole point of Antinous Moon Magic is to be able to call down the power of Antinous the Moon God at any time of the lunar year."

He explains, "So, for example, if someone consults me about asking their boss for a pay increase, I focus my attention on the 'Merchant Moon' representing the employer, and the 'Denarius Moon' for money as well as a special bead representing that person asking for a pay hike."

He says it does not matter that the Merchant Moon and Denarius Moon are lunar phases which occur at two totally different times of the year.

"Antinous Moon Magic exists beyond linear time. Antinous himself dwells in the Egyptian occult concept of SEP TEPY ... a state beyond Time and Space in which the universe is being created on a continual basis," Hernestus says. 

"The job of the magician-priest of Antinous, both in ancient times and now, has always been to enter into SEP TEPY and cast the prayer spell there."

He adds that the beads have a way of communicating special needs which require his attention.

"I wrap the beads around my wrist at random, paying no attention to the order of the beads," Hernestus. "Then during meditation, I look down and notice which bead or beads are right over my pulse on the underside of my wrist ... those beads indicate a person or situation that needs my attention."

He has found that the prayer beads can use this means to alert him to a person who is thinking of him or who is about to contact him very shortly. 

"I beads tell me a certain person is in trouble. So I consult the Antinous Oracle and go deep within myself to see what the specific situation is. Then when the person calls me, they are surprised to learn that I am already on top of their plight," he says.

"They seem to think I am psychic or something, but in fact, it is just the Antinous Moon Magic beads ... they really do work," he insists.

Astro Forecast: December 12 — 22, 2013

Antinous Astrology Forecast

DECEMBER 12 to 22, 2013


THURSDAY DECEMBER 12th 2013

On Thursday everyone around you seems to be intentionally annoying you ... and naturally you are not the least bit annoying to others! The problem is that ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD is at right angles to Jupiter and Venus.


FRIDAY DECEMBER 13th 2013

Friday the 13th could be the luckiest day of the year 2013 for you when lucky Jupiter is in a fortuitous trine aspect with determined, rock steady Saturn. Jupiter represents enlightenment, good fortune and optimism. Saturn, meanwhile, brings about focus, concentration and perseverance. Put another way, Jupiter is like a bright light that blinds you with its intensity. Saturn is the polarized goggles you put on to permit you to see clearly through the glare. The result is that you are able to work a bright idea into something tangible.


SATURDAY DECEMBER 14th 2013

On Saturday the waves of good fortune from lucky Friday the 13th continue to wash over you as ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD joins the Jupiter/Saturn good-luck aspect. Get noisome chores out of the way early so that you can enjoy this luck-filled day.


SUNDAY DECEMBER 15th 2013

On Sunday a party atmosphere prevails when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD forms a trine with Venus and Mars while squaring off against dreamy Neptune. And if you can't get together in person, you can always do a group SKYPE call.


MONDAY DECEMBER 16th 2013

Overnight Monday/Tuesday we come to the Solstice and when we come to the December Full Moon ... The Gemini Full Moon is the CATAMITUS MOON in Antinous Moon Magic, the moon signaling where change will occur in your life during the coming year. This is a powerfully magical moon for working gay magical spells in the Gemini areas of friendships, finances and getting in contact with prospective lovers.


TUESDAY DECEMBER 17th 2013

On Tuesday Uranus ends the Retrograde phase it started last July 17 and begins going forward again, as seen from the Earth. On Tuesday, as Uranus stands still and turns around, it encourages us to reflect upon the past five months to discern its action in our lives. Uranus is the great awakener, the cosmic alarm clock which shatters our cozy sleep to remind us there are places to go, people to meet, things to experience which can never be encounter if we stay where we are. When retrograde, those encounters occur within ourselves, with parts of our psyche we have failed to acknowledge or honour. Think about the changes that have occurred within you over the past five months ... as the changes now become external.


WEDNESDAY DECEMBER 18th 2013

On Wednesday your co-workers will be unusually annoying when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD forms a trine with Neptune and then forms tense aspects with Mars, Uranus and Pluto. Not only will your co-workers annoy you, they have the audacity to accuse you of being annoying to them. On top of it all, a number of annoying surprises occur.


THURSDAY DECEMBER 19th 2013

On Thursday fortune smiles on you when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD aligns in conjunction with lucky Jupiter and forms a nice trine with productive Saturn. Work will be easy and will fly by fast.


FRIDAY DECEMBER 20th 2013

On Friday the work week comes to a happy-go-lucky end when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD goes opposite Venus and forms a nice sextile with Mars. This is a recipe for a party atmosphere.

SUNDAY DECEMBER 22nd 2013

On Sunday the Solstice weekend ends with an atmosphere conducive to getting together with family and friends when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD forms merry aspects with Mercury and the Sun. Enjoy the fun ... because next week some unpleasant configurations cause problems for all of us.


SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:

Another exciting week lies ahead between December 23rd and 29th when we come to the Libra Third Quarter Moon. This is the lunar phase we call the CROSSROADS MOON in Antinous Moon Magic. It is symbolized by the "Herme", the ithyphallic stele of Mercury which guarded intersections of Roman roads. This night is ideal for carrying out meditations and rituals aimed at making decisions or deciding what course of action to take. Because this lunar phase always occurs in December or January, it is an ideal time for taking stock of the old year and making decisions for the new year. More details next time ....

THE ANTINOUS CONSORTIUM MOON
THE PISCES FIRST QUARTER MOON


TONIGHT's Pisces First Quarter Moon in Antinous Moon Magic is the CONSORTIUM MOON of social interaction, reconciliation and marital union.

Because it always occurs in December or January, the Consortium Moon represents the cyclical nature of the year, the ending of one year and the beginning of a new year. 

The end of one cycle automatically marks the beginning of a new cycle.

Each Lunar Phase represents a Divine Spirit or Archetype. The Spirit of the Consortium Moon is the Spirit of Togetherness.

This Spirit revels in closed circles, rings and ties that bind. It is the Spirit of every collaboration, group, association, alliance, team, fellowship, marriage, club or confederation.

It is the tangible feeling of togetherness and belonging people share when working towards a common goal.

Tonight is a beneficent night for meditation or rituals concerning relationships and all things that are bound by a circle. In health matters, it refers to blood and the circulatory system. This is the Lunar phase of the Circle of Life, the inter-connectedness of all things.

The key words are: Partnership. Alliance. Union. Marriage. Commitment. Circle. Ring. Group. Binding Agreement. Obligation to Others. It represents every sort of societal bond or binding alliance as symbolized by a wedding ring or the iron ring of Roman citizenship.

Astro Forecast: December 5 — 15, 2013

Antinous Astrology Forecast

DECEMBER 5 to 15, 2013


THURSDAY DECEMBER 5th 2013

On Thursday Mercury leaves dour Scorpio and wings its way into high-spirited Sagittarius. No matter what your Sun sign is, this abrupt change will lighten your spirits. It is like tossing and turning all night and then seeing the pink glow of dawn on the eastern horizon. Everything will be better. Now, this does not mean that Scorpio Mercury is bad. On the contrary, Scorpio Mercury urges you to probe into deep thoughts and dig out the truth, even if it is unpleasant. That is very important. But Sagittarius Mercury urges you to look on the bright side, to find joy in your life and pursue the light at the end of the tunnel.


FRIDAY DECEMBER 6th 2013

On Friday the work week ends on a dodgy, obscure and slightly disturbing note when Mercury it at right angles to nebulous Neptune. Your mind feeds you misleading and illusory thoughts and impressions. It is easy to be deceived not only by others, but more importantly by yourself. You can easily delude yourself into believing little white lies you have told others. Also, Mercury-square-Neptune has a nasty tendency to cause you to belittle yourself while building up others so they seem to be much greater than you are. Make sure you don't find yourself cowering like a mouse among lions ... which in fact you are the equal to everyone around you.


SATURDAY DECEMBER 7th 2013

On Saturday a quantum shift occurs when Mars leaves persnickety Virgo and enters diplomatic Libra, where the war god will remain until the end of July 2014. This means that in the coming months it will be more easier to find elegant compromises to resolve difficult conflicts with a minimum of effort. In your personal life, Libra Mars helps you to free yourself of old complications which have kept you bound and tied up.


SUNDAY DECEMBER 8th 2013

On Sunday a blissfully quiet and tranquil day permits you to re-energize your emotional batteries when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD aligns in perfect conjunction with dream Neptune and squares off against Sagittarius Mercury. You feel like sleeping in late and spending the day relaxing. You deserve a wellness day.


MONDAY DECEMBER 9th 2013

On Monday ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD is at right angles to the Sagittarius Sun for the Pisces First Quarter Moon. In Antinous Moon Magic this is the CONSORTIUM MOON of social interaction, reconciliation and marital union. Because it always occurs in December or January, the Consortium Moon represents the cyclical nature of the year, the ending of one year and the beginning of a new year. Tonight is a beneficent night for meditation or rituals concerning relationships and all things that are bound by a circle. In health matters, it refers to blood and the circulatory system. This is the Lunar phase of the Circle of Life, the inter-connectedness of all things.


TUESDAY DECEMBER 10th 2013

On Tuesday be sure to buy your Christmas lottery ticket when Mercury forms a luck-bringing trine with Uranus. Any time Mercury is involved, it boosts financial and business matters. Uranus, on the other hand, is good for surprising developments. Both of these planets working together are a recipe for unexpected windfalls, ranging from a cash prize to a lucrative offer you can't refuse.


WEDNESDAY DECEMBER 11th 2013

On Wednesday you need to be very careful in discussions with persons in positions of authority. You may find yourself jumping to conclusions and saying things you will regret later. That is because ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD is in perfect alignment with rebellious Uranus ... before later squaring off against authoritative Pluto.


THURSDAY DECEMBER 12th 2013

On Thursday everyone around you seems to be intentionally annoying you ... and naturally you are not the least bit annoying to others! The problem is that ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD is at right angles to Jupiter and Venus.


FRIDAY DECEMBER 13th 2013

Friday the 13th could be the luckiest day of the year 2013 for you when lucky Jupiter is in a fortuitous trine aspect with determined, rock steady Saturn. Jupiter represents enlightenment, good fortune and optimism. Saturn, meanwhile, brings about focus, concentration and perseverance. Put another way, Jupiter is like a bright light that blinds you with its intensity. Saturn is the polarized goggles you put on to permit you to see clearly through the glare. The result is that you are able to work a bright idea into something tangible.


SATURDAY DECEMBER 14th 2013

On Saturday the waves of good fortune from lucky Friday the 13th continue to wash over you as ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD joins the Jupiter/Saturn good-luck aspect. Get noisome chores out of the way early so that you can enjoy this luck-filled day.


SUNDAY DECEMBER 15th 2013

On Sunday a party atmosphere prevails when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD forms a trine with Venus and Mars while squaring off against dreamy Neptune. And if you can't get together in person, you can always do a group SKYPE call.


SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:

Another exciting week lies ahead between December 16th 22nd when we come to the Solstice and when we come to the December Full Moon ... The Gemini Full Moon is the CATAMITUS MOON in Antinous Moon Magic, the moon signaling where change will occur in your life during the coming year. This is a powerfully magical moon for working gay magical spells in the Gemini areas of friendships, finances and getting in contact with prospective lovers. More details next time ....

THE ANTINOUS FORTUNA MOON
THE SAGITTARIUS NEW MOON


TONIGHT's Sagittarius New Moon is when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD aligns in conjunction with his heavenly father Ra-Herakhte at the end of the year. 

In Antinous Moon Magic, this is the lunar phase we call the FORTUNA MOON. This is the classic good luck moon of the astrological year.

Each Lunar Phase represents a Divine Spirit or Archetype. The Spirit of the Fortuna Moon is the Spirit of Victory and Success.

This Spirit is the champion crossing the finish line, the winner of the match, the one holding the gold medal. 

This Spirit is the embodiment of the proverbial happy ending, the sweet smell of success, the incredible run of luck, the feather in one's cap, the stroke of genius, the jackpot, the mother lode. 

Antinous is holding a bottomless cornucopia with a powerful serpent wrapped around the cornucopia to enhance its power and ensure that nothing untoward can possible occur.

Antinous during this Lunar Phase is the personification of Good Fortune, the one for whom everything is coming up roses. He wraps his arm around your shoulder and says, "Trust your luck. Trust me." 

The is the best lunar cycle of the year for casting oracles, reading the runes or the cards or working spells for success in the coming year.
