HEALING ENERGY FROM THESE CRYSTALS
By Our Crystal Meditation Adviser Martin Campbell



OUR astrology 'doctor' Hernestus, has prompted me that tonight's Lamia Moon phase is about coping with sickness and the importance of boosting healing energies to reverse the negativity.

Hopefully the following crystals can help to guard you from ill health, help cure any illness you may have and find spiritual connections which may help you do this alone or in connection with other spiritually connected souls around the world.

AGATE - There are many different types of Agate in many lovely colours. Collectively they help to diminish problems, cleanse your aura and strengthens blood vessels that carry healing white blood cells around the body.

FLUORITE – These come in many colours or blends of colours. Collectively they reorganise inappropriate energies in the body by detoxifying the glands.

RAINBOW MOONSTONE – These lovely crystals (shown at top of entry) help you to personally connect to healing that you can project locally and globally.

It also eyes arteries and veins. Very powerful for using during moon phases but too powerful during full moons.

In Light and Life,
MARTIN

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. 21, 2016 to JAN. 1, 2017

Antinous Astrology Forecast

DEC 21, 2016 - JAN 1, 2017


WEDS.-FRIDAY DEC. 21st-23rd, 2016

On Tuesday at 10:45 Universal Time (1:45 a.m. Tuesday at the Hollywood Temple of Antinous) the sun "stands still" ("Sol Stasis") — the December 21, 2016, Solstice. The emphasis during this year's Solstice is on health because it coincides with the Virgo Third Quarter Moon, which brings down powerful healing energies. In Antinous Moon Magic we call this the AESCULAPIUS MOON in honor of the Classical god of the physician's art. Meditation and rituals carried out tonight are ideal for bringing down healing energies for yourself and those you love during the coming year. This is the SOLSTICE MOON OF ANTINOUS!

SAT.-SUNDAY DEC. 24th-25th, 2016

This Saturnalia/Christmas weekend is special because Saturn forms a rare trine aspect with Uranus — a configuration which occurs only every couple of couple of decades. Saturn trine Uranus is the "Time Travel" aspect in astrology, when impetuous Uranus rips away all constraints of "Father Time" (Saturn) in order to enable you to peer into other Space/Time dimensions. As if that were not enough, Venus engages in these positive configurations: Venus trine Jupiter ensures good fortune in matters of money and relationships, Venus sextile Saturn shows you which relationships in your life have long-term possibilities and which friends will be by your side for the long run, and Venus sextile Uranus brings new friends and business partners into your life. Not only are these fortuitous configurations good for making money, but they also greatly enhance chances of love and romance. So, go ahead — take a chance on love.

MONDAY DECEMBER 26th, 2016

On Monday Jupiter is in opposition to Uranus ... a rather frightening aspect which occurs only once every 12 years. The last time Jupiter opposition Uranus occurred was on 30th August 2003. These two major planets will be in exact, 180-degree opposition to each other twice in 2017 ... 2 March 2017 and 28 September 2017. After that, they will be in opposition in 2031 and 2045. Jupiter opposite Uranus signals a year of sudden and often reckless change. On the global level, that means sudden crises caused by incautious leaders who act without thinking about what they are doing. On the personal level, you will feel a strong urge to react, or rebel against anything that is stopping you from having fun and doing what you want. The expansive nature of Jupiter, the shocking nature of Uranus, and the antagonistic nature of the opposition mean that there is likely to be particular sudden event that releases built up tension and leads to a major change in circumstances. On the spiritual level, a change in beliefs or social interaction may be all it takes to act as a "restart" which causes people to reasses their religious beliefs. At the deeper level, you are seeking a burst of higher awareness, to transcend your daily routine and bring on a spiritual growth spurt.

TUESDAY DECEMBER 27th, 2016

On Tuesday the Sun, Mercury and Mars cause unrest. First, Sun sextile Mars encourages people to believe they can do anything ... and get away with anything. On the negative side, people run amok and even the weather can be more than usually unpredictable and destructive. On the positive side, however, you might accidentally run into the new love of your life ... while running for shelter. Also on Tuesday your intuition is enhanced when Mercury forms a sextile aspect with dreamy Neptune. You should trust your intuition about financial and business matters, but be wary of fast-talking salesmen who try to cloud your mind. You can count on finding the right word at the right time by trusting your inner voice. And because Mercury is Retrograde, you can expect inspiration to come from the past ... perhaps an old song ... an old movie ... an old holiday memory of something a departed loved one told you years ago.

WEDNESDAY DECEMBER 28th, 2016

On Wednesday 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.

THURSDAY DECEMBER 29th, 2016

Overnight Wednesday/Thursday we come to the Capricorn New Moon, which we call 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. Later on Thursday tempers flare when Mercury sextile Mars prompts people to lose their cool and lash out at each other .... verbally or physically.

FRIDAY DECEMBER 30th, 2016

On Friday Uranus the planet of revolutionary change stops dead in its tracks (as seen from Earth) and goes Direct (forwards) ... ending the Retrograde Uranus crisis of the last five months. Even when going forward, Uranus shakes things up. Uranus still shakes things up for us when it goes retrograde, but it starts to do so in a very pushy way. It pushes us to dig deep and really face the problems and the roadblocks that have impeded progress. It forces us to re-evaluate our values and our priorities. From now on, you can expect only the "usual chaos" in your life, and not the shocking chaos that has occurred since July 29th when Retrograde Uranus began.

SATURDAY DECEMBER 31st, 2016

On New Year's Eve Saturday the Capricorn Sun forms a dreamy sextile aspect to intuitive Neptune, inviting you to reflect introspectively about the old year and start dreaming about the new year. This is the perfect evening for oracle games, scrying, dream-scaping and fortune-telling.

SUNDAY JANUARY 1st, 2017

On New Year's Day, you feel intimidated and insecure when assertive Mars moves into alignment with nebulous Neptune. One the one hand, Mars has an agenda of self-esteem priorities. But on the other hand, Neptune says your ego is an illusion. This Mars/Neptune conjunction occurs about every 18 months ... and it invariably coincides with wars, terrorist attacks and betrayals of trust. This is because many males react to insecurity and perceived threats to their manhood by being overly aggressive. But there is a positive side to Mars/Neptune: This is a golden opportunity to review and reassess and meditate on your goals in life ... to come up with realistic ways of achieving them constructively.

SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:

Another exciting week lies ahead between January 2nd and 8th when we come to the Aries First Quarter Moon, which is the Lunar Phase we call the INVICTUS MOON ,,, the Antinous Moon Magic spirit of Mithras ... because this lunar phase always occurs in December or January near the Solstice Birthday of Mithras ... Invictus is the bold light that shines forth from a gay man's eyes to illuminate those around him. It is the warmth of your every being ... It is the optimism which brightens a dismal day when things are going wrong. Invictus is indomitable, unbeatable, unconquerable ... It is a determined spirit which never admits defeat, never gives up, never quits ... Invictus is a beacon which dispels darkness and casts out shadows ... In Antinous Moon Magic, tonight is an ideal time for meditation and rituals aimed at illuminating opaque situations or questions ... It is well-suited for planning assertive, goal-oriented action aimed at whole-heartedly positive results ... More details next time ....

HEALING ENERGY FROM THESE CRYSTALS
By Our Crystal Meditation Adviser Martin Campbell



THERE are two consecutive moon cycles to ponder and seek inspiration from. They are both focused on disease, sickness and healing. The AESCULAPIUS MOON with its focus on healing energy The LAMIA MOON with its focus on sickness and disease.

It is, therefore, sensible to consider the moons alongside each other and find crystals that you can meditate with, hold or surround yourself with during these phases. 

Hopefully they can guard you from ill health, help cure any illness you may have and find spiritual connections which may help you do this alone or in connection with other spiritually connected souls around the world. 

AGATE - There are many different types of Agate in many lovely colours. Collectively they help to diminish problems, cleanse your aura and strengthens blood vessels that carry healing white blood cells around the body.

AMETHYST – These are much loved and very common crystals. Some are made into rings or pendants,these will be less powerful than a more natural ‘raw’ crystal (pictured). They cleanse your vital organs and immune system. They are great for the skin and can lower high blood pressure. 

FLUORITE – These come in many colours or blends of colours. Collectively they reorganise inappropriate energies in the body by detoxifying the glands. 

MOLDAVITE – Now this is a very, very powerful crystal. It is recognised as one of the crystals with highest vibrations available. As a qualified Reiki healer, my partner collects and uses such crystals. It can, however, take quite a while to become attuned to their vast power. If you can become attuned at all – I really can’t because I have a balance problem since my stroke. If I pick up a Moldavite or stand near my partner when he is using one during meditation I get very unbalanced and feel nauseous.  

They were formed when a meteorite struck the earth on the Czech Republic and Moldova border in ancient times.  They make you aware of the cause of disease and help you to see any positives held within it. 

This may sound contradictory but my stroke released me from a stressful job and has allowed me to write my novel THE LOVE GOD and do things like crystal guidance for you all. 

Moldavite is good for healing the diseases of the respiratory tract such as flu. If you can become attuned to them they can help you to realise you are a spiritual being – my partner has advanced his spiritual connections and healing abilities through conscious work and mediation with these incredible stones. 

The most powerful are Bezednice Moldavites found in only one small area of the meteorite impact site. They look like little trees – beautiful but hugely expensive – my partner has two and believes they are the most potent. I can’t go near them!

RAINBOW MOONSTONE – These lovely crystals (shown at top of entry) help you to personally connect to healing that you can project locally and globally. It also eyes arteries and veins. Very powerful for using during moon phases but too powerful during full moons.

In Light and Life,
MARTIN

THE ANTINOUS AESCULAPIUS MOON
THE VIRGO THIRD QUARTER MOON


TONIGHT's Virgo Third Quarter Moon brings down powerful healing energies to ring out the calendar year on a propitious note. 

In Antinous Moon Magic, we call this the AESCULAPIUS MOON in honor of the Classical god of the physician's art, Aesculapius.

Aesculapius, as he was called by the Romans, was also called Asklepios or Asclepius by the Greeks. 

He was the son of APOLLO and the Trikkaian princess KORONIS

His mother died in labor and was laid out on the pyre to be consumed, but his father rescued the child, cutting him from her womb. 

From this he received the name Asklepios "to cut open." The boy was raised by the kentauros (centaur) CHIRON who instructed him in the art of medicine. 

Aesculapius grew so skilled in the craft that he was able to restore the dead to life. However, because this was a crime against the natural order, JUPITER/ZEUS destroyed him with a thunderbolt. After his death Aesculapius was placed amongst the stars as OPHIUCHUS ("the Serpent Holder"), sometimes called the 13th sign of the Zodiac

Some say his mother was also set in the heavens as Corvus, the crow (korônê in Greek). Aesculapius' APOTHEOSIS into godhood occurred at the same time. He was sometimes identified with Homer's PAION, the physician of the gods, as well as the Egyptian god of science, architecture and medicine IMHOTEP.

Aesculapius is depicted as a handsome man holding a serpent-entwined staff representing his powers to convert poison (venom) into medicine.

It is the source of the symbol which alchemists, pharmacists and physicians have used throughout the centuries to represent their medicinal prowess

The cult and cult statues of Aesculapius were widespread throughout the ancient world.

In Antinous Moon Magic, each Lunar Phase represents a Divine Spirit or Archetype. The Spirit of the Aesculapius Moon is the Spirit of Remedies and Repairs.

This Spirit heals all that is ill, it remedies all that is out of order and it repairs all that is broken. This Spirit sees damage and destruction and sets about putting things right again.

It sees ailment and finds a cure. It sees cracks which could lead to catastrophic failure and it mends them before they can spread. It sees suffering and alleviates all that  it can.

This Spirit is the embodiment of the human desire to leave imperfection behind and to become Divine.


Meditation and rituals carried out during the cycle of the Aesculapius Moon are ideal for bringing down healing energies for yourself and others in your life.

ASTRO FORECAST: DECEMBER 15th to 25th, 2016

Antinous Astrology Forecast

DECEMBER 15 to 25, 2016


THURS-FRIDAY DEC. 15th-16th, 2016

On Thursday and Friday ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD goes VOID OF COURSE for more than 20 hours across all time zones — causing delays, rescheduling, lost messages and missed opportunities. Remember we always say you should think of ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD as your favorite rock or pop star giving a concert. The VOC MOON is the break between sets. The singer goes back stage for a costume change and psychs themselves up for the next set. Meanwhile, the audience is waiting impatiently out front while video projections and doo-wah girls fill the interlude. That's what a VOID OF COURSE MOON feels like. Nothing much will happen during this VOC period — nothing bad, but nothing good either, just nothing. But on the plus side, a VOC is perfect for meditation, dream-scaping and contacting the spirit world.

SAT-SUNDAY DEC. 17th-18th, 2016

This weekend promises to be quietly romantic when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD engages in sexy configurations with love planet Venus and also with impetuous, love-at-first-sight Uranus. Otherwise, there are no major planetary aspects, which means you should enjoy the lull while it lasts ... as tensions mount next week!

MONDAY DECEMBER 19th, 2016

On Monday, Mars leaves cold and logical Aquarius and dives into the waters of Pisces ... this is like lava dropping into the sea ... lots of steam and boiling ... and the cosmos conspires to make your dreams come true! In watery Pisces, Mars's fiery impulsive energy is converted to steamy dreams and hot emotions. For the next five weeks, until Mars enter Aries on January 28, 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 DECEMBER 20th, 2016

On Tuesday Mercury does an about-face and goes "backwards" as seen from Earth until January 8th. This RETROGRADE MERCURY phase is a time of confusion in communications and commerce. About three times each year, Mercury the communications wizard turns into Mercury the fast-talking con man. This is the RETROGRADE MERCURY phase, and it lasts about three weeks. Because Mercury is in Capricorn, RETROGRADE MERCURY will be serving up glitches and snafus in the Capricorn-related areas of job, career, finances as well as communications, computers, transport, travel and social media. If you are buying a new mobile phone, be sure to read the fine print about hidden costs. Planning to move into a new apartment? Check the kitchen and bathroom for tell-tale signs of mold before signing the lease. Remember over the next three weeks that MERCURY wants you to play his sly game to win — not to be a whining victim. Make him proud of the way you play his game!

WEDS.-FRIDAY DEC. 21st-23rd, 2016

On Tuesday at 10:45 Universal Time (1:45 a.m. Tuesday at the Hollywood Temple of Antinous) the sun "stands still" ("Sol Stasis") — the December 21, 2016, Solstice. The emphasis during this year's Solstice is on health because it coincides with the Virgo Third Quarter Moon, which brings down powerful healing energies. In Antinous Moon Magic we call this the AESCULAPIUS MOON in honor of the Classical god of the physician's art. Meditation and rituals carried out tonight are ideal for bringing down healing energies for yourself and those you love during the coming year. This is the SOLSTICE MOON OF ANTINOUS!

SAT.-SUNDAY DEC. 24th-25th, 2016

This Saturnalia/Christmas weekend is special because Saturn forms a rare trine aspect with Uranus — a configuration which occurs only every couple of couple of decades. Saturn trine Uranus is the "Time Travel" aspect in astrology, when impetuous Uranus rips away all constraints of "Father Time" (Saturn) in order to enable you to peer into other Space/Time dimensions. As if that were not enough, Venus engages in these positive configurations: Venus trine Jupiter ensures good fortune in matters of money and relationships, Venus sextile Saturn shows you which relationships in your life have long-term possibilities and which friends will be by your side for the long run, and Venus sextile Uranus brings new friends and business partners into your life. Not only are these fortuitous configurations good for making money, but they also greatly enhance chances of love and romance. So, go ahead — take a chance on love.

SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:

Another exciting week lies ahead between December 26th and January 1st when we come to the Capricorn New Moon, which we call 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 ... More details next time ....

CATAMITUS MOON CRYSTALS FOR CHANGE
By Our Crystal Meditation Adviser Martin Campbell



THE Catamitus Moon (Gemini Full Moon) signals where change will be occurring … or needs to occur … in your life during the coming year.

If you feel stuck in a rut, crystal meditations during this lunar phase help you to focus on bringing about change … in your living situation … your job and finances … and in your friendships.

I recommend these using these crystals: 

Chrysocolla: This beautiful green, blue and turquoise stone helps you to accept change with calmness. It also has an astonishing array of other physical and mental health improving qualities. It is one of my favourites and I have one permanently under my bed pillow!

Lapis Lazuli: These fabulous deep blue stones, flecked with gold, were highly prized by ancient European and middle eastern cultures but especially the Egyptians who incorporated them into stunning items such as Tutankhamun's death mask. They help to bond relationships - especially friendships - by helping you to express emotions. 

Citrine: These  yellow/gold crystals form in clusters, in caves, but are usually separated into single arrowhead-like 'points' to sell them. They are wonderful crystals for attracting wealth.  

Chinese Feng Shui practitioners suggest placing a Citrine in the 'wealth corner' of your home (the furthest back left point of your home) to bring wealth into your life. 

Meditation experts would suggest that you create a 'grid' of Citrines around you as you meditate. A grid is a set of crystals arranged in a regular pattern around you (circle, square, octagon etc.). 

Where the crystals have 'points' the points should be arranged so that they align with another point thus creating a matrix or grid pattern. Energy flows best along lines which is why this technique can be so powerful.

Emerald: Highly faceted emeralds can be expensive but 'rough' natural emeralds are much cheaper and more powerful. These beautiful green crystals are known as the crystal of 'successful love'.  

It also helps a group of people reach mutual understanding and cooperation so is also useful for the friendships element above. 

Love and Light twinkling from facets,
MARTIN

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.

DIAMONDS FOR THE CONSORTIUM MOON
By Our Crystal Meditation Adviser Martin Campbell



FOR tonight's CONSORTIUM MOON, which shines its moonbeams on interpersonal relationships, I would suggest:

1. Diamonds - obviously I hear you cry! "Diamonds Are Forever" as Shirley Bassey sings (above).

But actually they create fearlessness, fortitude and the insight to see where problems lie so you can fix them - perfect for a lasting relationship with someone!

They are the perfect cleansers of your aura. Your aura is that energy which emanates from yourself, reflecting your current condition/mood. Some people can sense them - some can see them in waves of colour around you (I can do this if I really concentrate and blur my vision). If you are feeling negative, angry or stressed your aura will show or feel this. Diamonds can help you clear this. Again, perfect for a lasting relationship!

They are huge suppliers of energy (which one may need on a marriage night!). They also increase your metabolic rate and counteract poisons (which may be needed if your husband finds out you've been unfaithful!).

2. Sardonyx - These beautiful stones were much loved by the Romans for carving stunning cameos and other jewels - particularly those representing relationships.

The Roman sardonyx cameo (known as the Grand Camée de France) is a perfect example.

Sardonyx stones are perfect for this moon phase because they bring lasting happiness and stability to relationships.

They resensitize the sensory organs - which could also come in handy for the adventurous on that honeymoon!!!

They regulate fluids in the body and aid cell reproduction in blood.

Light and sparkling crystals,
MARTIN

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 1st to 18th, 2016

Antinous Astrology Forecast

DECEMBER 1 to 18, 2016


THURSDAY DECEMBER 1st, 2016

On Thursday you see the world through rose-colored glasses when the Sun is at right angles to Neptune. Sun-square-Neptune is the kind of aspect that occurs when Jack sells the family cow for a handful of "magic" beans. In the fairy tale, of course, the beans turn out to be magic after all. But on this weekend the beans aren't magic at all. If you do holiday shopping, it might be a good idea to watch your emotions and not let yourself be carried away. It might also be a good idea to watch your wallet and not let it be lifted by some pickpocket.

FRIDAY DECEMBER 2nd, 2016

On Friday you may feel like a "noble knight" when Mars forms a trine aspect with the Jupiter. Unfortunately, Mars trine Jupiter many people may become deluded that they are superheroes, using others as kindling to start fires — not always literally often metaphorically. Either way, it is just so they can be seen to be the hero and put it out and destroy the lives of others in the process. Beware of crusaders who urge you to take part in some sacred battle. And beware of demagogues who insist they are fighting a holy war, sacrificing the lives of many innocent men women and children in the name of war or competition for basic/personal needs, just so they look like the hero.

SAT.-MONDAY DEC. 3rd-5th, 2016

This weekend Mercury gets down to business and moves into Capricorn. From now through New Year's Eve (when Mercury enters Aquarius) you may find it easier to set helpful limits just as the holiday season reaches its peak. This is a mentally grounded energy that can help you understand the trade-off between short-term pain and long-term gain. Mercury in Capricorn is focused on the future and eager to organize a grounded plan for success. Whatever your goals now ... a calm holiday, a strong start to 2017 ... Capricorn Mercury can help you put a plan into place. Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, planet of structure and focus. Mercury has a quicksilver, trickster nature. When in Saturn's sign, Mercury is urged to get organized, so a little effort goes a long way now. Consider the consequences of what you decide, and make sure the costs are truly worth it. A slow-and-steady approach will help you stay calm through the end of the year. Mercury in Capricorn embodies the idea that when you say "no" to one offer, you create space to say "yes" to another. As we move out of the holiday season and into the new year, remember to keep your eye on the prize! Also this weekend, the THE YEAR OF MARS 2016 certainly lives up to its name this weekend when aggressive Mars forms an ambition-filled sextile aspect with Saturn. You will be energized with perseverance and endurance for the long haul.

TUES.-WEDNESDAY DEC. 6th-7th, 2016

Overnight Tuesday-Wednesday we come to the Pisces First Quarter Moon. In Antinous Moon Magic this is the CONSORTIUM MOON of partnership, commitment and belonging ... it is symbolized by the wedding ring ... Because it always occurs towards the end of the year, 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 of togetherness ... 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.

THURSDAY DECEMBER 8th, 2016

On Thursday dreams really can come true when ambitious Mars forms a positive sextile aspect with impulsive, anything-goes Uranus. This powerful configuration throws open all the doors and windows so that a breath of fresh air comes blowing through your life on all levels ... at work and also in your interpersonal relationships. Uranus throws everything up in the air and opens new possibilities. Meanwhile, Venus leaves stodgy Capricorn and enters socially interactive Aquarius, so you may feel an irresistible urge to check your social network even before you get out of bed. The coming month is idea for exploring the vastness of cyber worlds in search of the ultimate interactive relationship. You sense a yearning for new and interesting places, things and friends as Aquarius Venus opens your heart to adventurous new ideas and people. It will be easy for you to overcome your shyness and meet new people. But you may get bored quickly and may have a hard time focusing on any one subject — or person.

FRIDAY DECEMBER 9th, 2016

On Friday be sure to buy a lottery ticket when the Sun forms a sextile aspect with lucky Jupiter. Keep your eyes open for opportunities for good fortune.

SATURDAY DECEMBER 10th, 2016

On Saturday the weekend gets off to an intuitive start when Mercury forms a sextile aspect with dreamy Neptune. You should trust your intuition about financial and business matters, but be wary of fast-talking salesmen who try to cloud your mind. You can count on finding the right word at the right time by trusting your inner voice.

SUNDAY DECEMBER 11th, 2016

On Sunday, we come to our annual reality check when the Sun aligns with Saturn. This year's Sun/Saturn rendezvous is in the jovial sign of Sagittarius. The result is that Saturn floods you with doubts and caution while the Sun showers you with over-confidence and over-optimism. You find yourself wanting desperately to achieve long-stalled goals ... but you are plagued by doubts and insecurities. You crave recognition, but you find it difficult to cope with praise.

MONDAY DECEMBER 12th, 2016

The first part of this week is dominated by Uranus, when the Sun forms a positive trine aspect with Uranus which blows in a breath of fresh air which rejuvenates and invigorates you and encourages you to act first and ask questions later.Remember also that the Sun is aligned with Saturn and both are in a pleasant sextile aspect to lucky Jupiter ... all of which encourages you to make plans for the coming year.

TUES-WEDNESDAY DEC. 13th-14th, 2016

Overnight Tuesday/Wednesday we come to the Gemini Full Moon, which 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.

THURS-FRIDAY DEC. 15th-16th, 2016

On Thursday and Friday ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD goes VOID OF COURSE for more than 20 hours across all time zones — causing delays, rescheduling, lost messages and missed opportunities. Remember we always say you should think of ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD as your favorite rock or pop star giving a concert. The VOC MOON is the break between sets. The singer goes back stage for a costume change and psychs themselves up for the next set. Meanwhile, the audience is waiting impatiently out front while video projections and doo-wah girls fill the interlude. That's what a VOID OF COURSE MOON feels like. Nothing much will happen during this VOC period — nothing bad, but nothing good either, just nothing. But on the plus side, a VOC is perfect for meditation, dream-scaping and contacting the spirit world.

SAT-SUNDAY DEC. 17th-18th, 2016

This weekend promises to be quietly romantic when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD engages in sexy configurations with love planet Venus and also with impetuous, love-at-first-sight Uranus. Otherwise, there are no major planetary aspects, which means you should enjoy the lull while it lasts ... as tensions mount next week!

SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:

Another exciting week lies ahead between December 19th and 25th when we come to the Virgo Third Quarter Moon, which brings down powerful healing energies. In Antinous Moon Magic we call this the AESCULAPIUS MOON in honor of the Classical god of the physician's art. Meditation and rituals carried out tonight are ideal for bringing down healing energies for yourself and those you love ... 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.

ASTRO FORECAST: NOV. 17th to DEC. 4th, 2016

Antinous Astrology Forecast

NOV. 17th to DEC. 4th, 2016


THURS.-FRIDAY NOV. 17th-18th, 2016

The week Mercury squares off against dreamy Neptune. This powerful configuration makes it very difficult to do any practical work in the real world. You should avoid signing contracts or making long-term commitments. However ... this configuration is perfect for dreamscaping. Remember that the Obelisk of Antinous says he sends healing visions to his worshipers as they slumber.

SAT.-SUNDAY NOV. 19th-20th, 2016

The weekend is a great time to take in an art exhibit ... or create art yourself ... when Capricorn Venus is in a creative sextile with Retrograde Pisces Neptune. Trust your intuition on all matters of money and love. And when you go out this weekend, you can expect old-fashioned romance because Retrograde Pisces Neptune loves nostalgia.

MONDAY NOVEMBER 21st, 2016

On Monday we come to the Leo Third Quarter Moon, which is called the BACCHANALIA MOON in Antinous Moon Magic for its gifts of transcendence ... This Lunar Phase reflects those festivals of peering into other worlds and states of being ... a restless time of high-spirited indulgence, sometimes fun, sometimes slightly scary and always capable of unleashing powerful spirits ... On a mundane level, it refers to putting on a disguise and "having a good time". On a spiritual level, it refers to entering an altered state to commune with the divine, thus this Lunar Phase is the best time of the year for trance visions.

TUESDAY NOVEMBER 22nd, 2016

On Tuesday don't believe much of anything you hear when Mercury forms a chatty sextile aspect with Jupiter. Mercury loves to tell tales and Jupiter loves to exaggerate.

WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 23rd, 2016

On Wednesday your brain becomes finely honed to precision thinking when Mercury aligns in perfect conjunction with Saturn in high-spirited Sagittarius. You see clearly and optimistically into any difficult situation.

THURS.-FRIDAY NOV. 24th-25th, 2016

On Thursday ... US Thanksgiving Day ... Libra Jupiter is in a 90-degree square aspect to Capricorn Pluto. Then on Friday Venus joins this unlucky configuration by aligning in conjunction with Pluto and at right angles to Jupiter. This aspect heralds disaster on the global financial markets — a restructuring of the world's economic systems. The arrogance of unbridled growth (Jupiter) will be put into question by thorough and deep-seated structural reordering (Pluto) for the benefit of all humanity, not just for a few. This configuration is warning you — no, ordering you — to reassess your assets. Money and property are transitory things. Reflect on what is truly valuable to you.

SAT.-SUNDAY NOV. 26th-27th, 2016

This weekend, you can expect surprise tidings from the past when Mercury is in a very conducive karmic-healing trine to Retrograde Uranus. Mercury-trine-Uranus always creates optimal energies for breaking down encrusted old structures and for mentally visualizing bold new solutions. Because Uranus Retrograde (going "backwards" as seen from Earth), the emphasis is on the past. Retrograde Uranus opens the portals of Time and Space and Mercury enables you to go through those portals to engage in healing magic involving your own past, or past-life incarnations. Even if you do not work any magic, you can definitely count on receiving a message involving someone or something from the past.

MON.-TUESDAY NOV. 28th-29th, 2016

Overnight Monday-Tuesday ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD aligns in conjunction with his heavenly father Ra-Herakhte for the SAGITTARIUS NEW MOON. 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.

WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 30th, 2016

On Wednesday it's make-up or break-up time when Venus squares off against Uranus. You can be sure that unanticipated upheavals will occur in interpersonal relationships. Misunderstandings and arguments come from no where. This is the sort of day when seemingly stable relationships break up for a minor reason. And at work, you sense that people are conspiring against you. And quite possibly they are.

THURSDAY DECEMBER 1st, 2016

On Thursday you see the world through rose-colored glasses when the Sun is at right angles to Neptune. Sun-square-Neptune is the kind of aspect that occurs when Jack sells the family cow for a handful of "magic" beans. In the fairy tale, of course, the beans turn out to be magic after all. But on this weekend the beans aren't magic at all. If you do holiday shopping, it might be a good idea to watch your emotions and not let yourself be carried away. It might also be a good idea to watch your wallet and not let it be lifted by some pickpocket.

FRIDAY DECEMBER 2nd, 2016

On Friday you may feel like a "noble knight" when Mars forms a trine aspect with the Jupiter. Unfortunately, Mars trine Jupiter many people may become deluded that they are superheroes, using others as kindling to start fires — not always literally often metaphorically. Either way, it is just so they can be seen to be the hero and put it out and destroy the lives of others in the process. Beware of crusaders who urge you to take part in some sacred battle. And beware of demagogues who insist they are fighting a holy war, sacrificing the lives of many innocent men women and children in the name of war or competition for basic/personal needs, just so they look like the hero.

SAT.-SUNDAY DEC. 3rd-4th, 2016

font size= "3">This weekend Mercury gets down to business and moves into Capricorn. From now through New Year's Eve (when Mercury enters Aquarius) you may find it easier to set helpful limits just as the holiday season reaches its peak. This is a mentally grounded energy that can help you understand the trade-off between short-term pain and long-term gain. Mercury in Capricorn is focused on the future and eager to organize a grounded plan for success. Whatever your goals now ... a calm holiday, a strong start to 2017 ... Capricorn Mercury can help you put a plan into place. Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, planet of structure and focus. Mercury has a quicksilver, trickster nature. When in Saturn's sign, Mercury is urged to get organized, so a little effort goes a long way now. Consider the consequences of what you decide, and make sure the costs are truly worth it. A slow-and-steady approach will help you stay calm through the end of the year. Mercury in Capricorn embodies the idea that when you say "no" to one offer, you create space to say "yes" to another. As we move out of the holiday season and into the new year, remember to keep your eye on the prize! Also this weekend, the THE YEAR OF MARS 2016 certainly lives up to its name this weekend when aggressive Mars forms an ambition-filled sextile aspect with Saturn. You will be energized with perseverance and endurance for the long haul.

SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:

Another exciting week lies ahead between December 5th and 11th when we come to the Pisces First Quarter Moon. In Antinous Moon Magic this is the CONSORTIUM MOON of partnership, commitment and belonging ... it is symbolized by the wedding ring ... Because it always occurs towards the end of the year, 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 of togetherness ... 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 ... More details next time ....

CRYSTALS FOR BACCHANALIA AND FORTUNA
By Our Crystal Meditation Adviser Martin Campbell



THE dark nights of autumn (or spring if you live in the Southern Hemisphere) are a transitional period illuminated by two bright lunar phases: The BACCHANALIA MOON and the FORTUNA MOON.

The Bacchanalia Moon is a time of spring/harvest festivals and merry-making. This lunar phase is the patron moon of performers, musicians, actors, dancers and also of shamans and mediumistic channelers ... people who put on a mask and take on a different character for the evening. It is also a time for merry-making.

The Fortuna Moon is the luckiest lunar phase of the year, the time when meditations focus on areas in our lives where we are looking for success or for counting our blessings.

My crystal meditation choices for these two lunar phases are:


1. Joy/excess - Alexandrite Beryl (shown above). It brings joy and expands creativity.

2. Channeling - Angelite. It facilitates contact with the spirits and angels.

3. Fearful surprises - Orange Calcite. It removes fear and balances the emotions. 

4. Positive surprises - Emerald. It enhances the enjoyment of the world and all it brings.

5. Good fortune - Sunstone. It helps you to link with benevolent gods and good fortune.

6. Positive manifestation - Citrine. It helps you to accept the positive flow of energies that will take you to where you sub-consciously (or even consciously) know you really need to be (physically, emotionally or spiritually).

I had a very powerful visualisation when meditating with a beautiful little piece of Citrine recently. 

I was guided to a vast cave where I found a pool of water illuminated by a shaft of light. I saw a marble bust of Antinous laid on its back in the water, so his face looked up at me. I am clairaudient so heard his voice say “remember I am always here”. 

I think he meant both in terms of omnipotence but also within that crystal. I now carry it with me everywhere!

Love and Light
MARTIN

THE BACCHANALIA MOON OF ANTINOUS
THE LEO THIRD QUARTER MOON



TONIGHT's Leo Third Quarter Moon is called the BACCHANALIA MOON in Antinous Moon Magic for its gifts of transcendence. 

This Lunar Phase usually occurs close to the ancient festivals of Samhain, Halloween, All Souls Day, Dia de los Muertos and All Saints Day. This Lunar Phase reflects those festivals of peering into other worlds and states of being.

In ancient times, the Bacchanalia were wild and mystic festivals of the Greco-Roman god Bacchus (or Dionysus) aimed at achieving a transcendent state of spiritual awareness.


Antinous was often associated with Dionysus. Antinous/Dionysus is portrayed alongside Silenus god of wine and revelry in the image above from l'Oracolo della Sibilla, a traditional European oracle card deck created by Italian artist Giorgio Tavaglioni.

The Leo Third Quarter Moon is therefore a restless time of high-spirited indulgence, sometimes fun, sometimes slightly scary and always capable of unleashing powerful spirits.

Each Lunar Phase represents a Divine Spirit or Archetype. 


The Spirit of the Bacchanalia Moon is the Spirit of Gaiety, Fun, Pretend and Revelry. 

This Spirit likes to dress up in fancy dress or in a costume and pretend to be someone else. This Spirit likes to transcend other realities and, for a time, actually become someone else.

This Spirit knows that the cosmos is a big toy and that we are here to play a game. We are dervishes dancing ourselves into a trance. We are musicians and singers who use music to gain access to other realms. We are actors on a stage who have an entrance and who play a role and then depart.

There is no end to the performance and nobody actually dies for real. We just undergo a costume change and take on a new role.

In magical rituals, oracles and meditations, the keywords for this Magical Lunar Phase are: Gaiety. Revelry. Joy. Fun. Frivolity. Partying. Playing. Acting. Performing. Dancing. Theater and the Arts. 


This Lunar Phase represents "play time" of all sorts, from sports and games to New Year's Eve partying to shamanistic spiritual trance rituals. Also "playing" an instrument or "playing" a role on stage or on the screen. 

This Lunar Phase represents the transformational power of make-believe and "let's play like" which all performers know how to do.

On a mundane level, it refers to "having a good time". On a spiritual level, it refers to entering an altered state to commune with the divine, thus this Lunar Phase is the best time of the year for trance visions.


In health questions, meditations and rituals during this time can reference chronic substance abuse.

ASTRO FORECAST: NOVEMBER 10th — 27th, 2016

Antinous Astrology Forecast

NOVEMBER 10-27, 2016


THURS.-FRIDAY NOVEMBER 10th-11th, 2016

The latter half of this week takes on a coolly logical tone when Mars leaves stodgy Capricorn and enters rational, logical Aquarius — the Warrior Planet Mars becomes First Officer Spock! Aquarius Mars carries out his "battles" on a highly cerebral level. This is the nerd gamer who loves 3-D chess and role-playing games. Mars in Aquarius signals a time when emotions are sublimated as people engage in mind games. That is not a bad thing — as long as people don't get so caught up in the chatter of their brains that they forget to listen to their hearts.

SATURDAY NOVEMBER 12th, 2016

On Saturday Venus (love, sexual attraction, wealth) enters Capricorn (business, practicality, hard reality) and stays there until December 8th. The goddess of love will have us reviewing and renewing many of our relationship commitments and obligations in very tangible and concrete ways. Venus in Capricorn knows the laws of sexuality in any given culture, and is skilled at bending those laws to their benefit. Capricorn wants to be the boss of itself (and possibly you) and generally goes it alone, which is an interesting modus operandi for the planet that tells us about how we do partnership. This trip through the sign of the Goat can teach us about boundaries within our unions. There's nothing sexier than someone who isn't desperate for our affections while still remaining open, transparent and available for intimacy and spontaneity. Venus in Capricorn can become a bit of a cautious ice queen if it starts to take itself, its work and its ambitions too seriously. Career can become the ultimate turn on, and social status the greatest romance when Capricorn gets out of balance. Venus in Capricorn can teach us how to be one of the most loyal and dedicated partners around.

SUNDAY NOVEMBER 13th, 2016

On Sunday Mercury leaves dour Scorpio and wings its way into high-spirited Sagittarius, where it will stay until December 3rd. 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. The only disadvantage to Sadge Mercury is a certain tendency to be so busy talking about the light at the end of the tunnel that you miss the freeway exit to the tunnel — but Sagittarius Mercury is always optimistic and will find an innovative way to reach the destination.

MONDAY NOVEMBER 14th, 2016

On Monday we come to the TAURUS FULL MOON. That is the lunar phase which, in Antinous Moon Magic, is called the HADRIAN's VILLA MOON. This is a way for Antinous the Gay God to help you find your spiritual home, the celestial palace you have made for yourself. This Moon is aimed at helping you focus and center your spiritual heart.

TUES.-WEDNESDAY NOV. 15th-16th, 2016

This week offers in the perfect opportunity for a job interview or for a presentation of a special project. Mercury is in a good sextile to Mars to help you get your point across articulately and strongly to others.

THURS.-FRIDAY NOV. 17th-18th, 2016

The week Mercury squares off against dreamy Neptune. This powerful configuration makes it very difficult to do any practical work in the real world. You should avoid signing contracts or making long-term commitments. However ... this configuration is perfect for dreamscaping. Remember that the Obelisk of Antinous says he sends healing visions to his worshipers as they slumber.

THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME
By Our Crystal Meditation Adviser Martin Campbell



THERE's no place like home and tonight's Taurus Full Moon ... "Hadrian's Villa Moon" ... is full of joy and settled comfort. 

You can luxuriate in the calm and comfort of the home be it a physical space, the welcome in your lover's arms or or that calm and comforting space in your consciousness when you you know you are safe and warm. 

There are really only three crystals I would advise meditation with for this moon phase:

1. Emerald - it brings a happy home, fidelity from your partner and protects you from external dark magic or ill intended enchantments. Emeralds sound expensive but those are the faceted ones in fine jewels - the 'raw' unfaceted ones are much cheaper and much more powerful (as is the case for all crystals, incidentally).

2.  Purprite – It is the crystal recommended to help you during a house move. It is also known to disperse negative energy and help you to feel at home in your future plans. I have strong personal experience of this lovely iridescent purple stone. 

My partner and I moved home in April this year. We had a worrying time leading up to the move when our first buyer dropped out. We were devastated because we thought we may lose our dream home. 

We were sitting in our old home one evening when we heard a loud bang in the kitchen. 

My wall-rack of crystals was in there. (Photo at left)

On the kitchen floor, the other side of the room, was my Purprite. 

It had leapt across the wide room somehow. 

We kept it by us while the legal process happened - we found a new, better buyer, moved quickly and go £20,000 more than expected for our old house!

3. Your favourite crystal - if you have a crystal with you feel 'at one', regardless of the level of vibration associated with it, then it may be the best one for you to use right now.

As I've said before, you don't need to be an expert - just choose a crystal you like the look of, feel of, colour off. You will have been drawn to those sensation because that crystal is vibrating at the level you need or are in tune with. 

Love and Light,
MARTIN
