JULY 31 to AUG 10, 2014
THURSDAY JULY 31, 2014
On Thursday Mercury finally leaves Cancer after a marathon, five-week stint in the one Sign where Mercury feels really bored. Starting now, Mercury fast-forwards through fiery Leo in just two weeks. Mercury and Jupiter will have their annual rendezvous — this year in upbeat Leo. This will be an exciting two weeks of tweeting, chatting, messaging, emailing, blogging and vlogging for sure.
FRIDAY AUGUST 1, 2014
On Friday watch out for bullying and vengeance when distrustful Scorpio Mars squares off against over-eager Leo Jupiter. Mars is suspicious of ulterior motives and ready to pick a fight to avenge a perceived wrong. Jupiter, meanwhile insists on being right about everything and dares anybody to challenge him.
SATURDAY AUGUST 2, 2014
On Saturday Mercury joins the Mars/Jupiter wrestling match which got underway on Friday. In alignment with Jupiter in arrogant Leo, Mercury is itching to ratchet up the volume of the fight and to broadcast everything via webcam, broadband or any other means available to as many people as possible.
SUNDAY AUGUST 3, 2014
Overnight Sunday/Monday we come to the Scorpio First Quarter Moon, which is the lunar phase we call the THIEF MOON in honor of Prometheus ... the first thief ... and it was thanks to his larcenous thievery that humans are not living in burrows and dens like animals ... Rituals and meditations tonight can focus on your "inner thief" — the things you rob yourself of — self-esteem, self-love, self-confidence, for example. By robbing yourself of these qualities, you are vulnerable to real-life thieves ... Tonight's lunar phase is also reminding us about the ability to take what we need without asking in advance. It is about getting back what is rightfully ours.
MONDAY AUGUST 4, 2014
On Monday there is good news and there is not so good news. The good news for those of you who live in the Eastern Hemisphere is that you will want to cuddle when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD forms a pleasant aspects with Pluto, Saturn and Venus. The not so good news is for those of you who live in the Americas when the Moon goes VOID OF COURSE for 16 hours ... resulting in a carelessness and romantic frivolity. Not that that is necessarily bad. It just means you may not get as much work done as you had hoped.
TUESDAY AUGUST 5, 2014
On Tuesday you get lots of work done in a flash when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD forms a nice trine with lucky Jupiter.
WEDNESDAY AUGUST 6, 2014
On Wednesday cleverness and spontaneity rule the day when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD is in positive configurations with Mercury, the Sun, Uranus and Neptune.
THURSDAY AUGUST 7, 2014
On Thursday you may be tempted to get raunchy when secretive Scorpio Mars forms a trine with fantasy-prone Pisces Neptune. You will want to let your fantasies take you to dark and unexplored corners of your sexual self. Just saying.
FRIDAY AUGUST 8, 2014
On Friday ideas come at you from all sides and you can expect the unexpected when the Sun aligns in conjunction with Mercury and then (later) Mercury forms a trine with impulsive Uranus. A surprise message or call may be just the news you have always been waiting for ... whether you knew it or not.
SATURDAY AUGUST 9, 2014
On Saturday it's time to say good-bye to tired-out old habits when the Sun forms a trine with Uranus as meanwhile Saturn squares off against both the Sun and Mercury. Uranus is pushing you to go for something new and different even as Saturn is showing you just how tired and worn-out some of your old ways of thinking and behaving have become.
SUNDAY AUGUST 10, 2014
On Sunday the AQUARIUS FULL MOON occurs. This is the summertime moon of generous gifts which we associate with Antinous/Vertumnus, the shape-shifting God of summertime bounty and generous gifts. We call this the DONUM MOON when magical rituals are performed for fortuitous gifts.
SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:
Another exciting week lies ahead between August 11 and 17 when we come to the Taurus Third Quarter Moon — the MOON OF BROTHERS — when we honor Lucius Aelius, who was like a brother to Antinous in the imperial court of Hadrian. This night is when we celebrate our gay brothers!.... More details next time ....
