Today's New Moon is in Antares: Scorpio: Ophiuchus
 People born between December 02 - December 15       Western zodiac: 12°40' - 26° Sagittarius




Antares: Royal Heart of the Scorpion.
The Galaxy of the Phoenix rising from the ashes and reclaiming its power.
The Galaxy of Moses in the basket.



Every Day has its own energy. We can use this energy to our advantage and / or to warn us against taking certain actions. 

Today is good for finance but warns against explosive situations, suspicions and injuries. Vibrate love to attract good things into your life. Wear white, pink or red for self-empowerment today. 

Moon conjuncts Mars - Energetic day good for exercise. Today brings success. Good to empower yourself and also to restock supplies.

I aim to live magically, and invite you to join me on my journey as I explore and explain these energies so that we can move with the rhythm of nature for our ultimate benefit and gain. In my quest I track the daily movement and energy of the moon and the planets that influence earth. I put pictures of the moon's path and what it symbolizes for all to follow and enjoy.

Marker Star: Antares (royal star) and Rastaban (Dragon's Eye): Heart of the Scorpio: 12°40' - 26° Sagittarius.

Ruled by: Mercury (mind / thinking), Uriel and Indra (the powerful).


Symbols: Shield (protection); a spear (warfare)
               orobis (circles of life and death, reincarnation)
               Scorpio's heart - the eldest - patriarch - matriarch
               Circular amulet, umbrella, earring 

Antares Numbers: 18 and 9 (numbers of magic and rituals) and 8.

Antares Power Color: Red

Today's numbers: 3, 4, 12, 13, 31, 348


Positive Energy Vibrated: Unlock your personal power and emerge victoriously. Protecting loved ones. Past experience will guide you to use your resources for maximum benefit. Be energetic and enthusiastic.

Negative Energy: Warfare, deceit, revenge and karmic lessons. Dreams, nightmares, restlessness, turbulent emotions. Guard against over-indulgence.

The Scorpion was placed in the sky by Artemis as a reminder that betrayal, jealousy, deception and revenge can kill you. Anger is one syllable away from d-anger.

When the Moon is in the Antares Mansion we may feel unsettled in our minds.  It is fine to protect what and who we love but curb the tendency to want to take revenge.  Since Mercury rules cars and the Moon rules emotions (eg anger) and Mercury and the Moon don't get along, it is a good idea to watch yourself on the roads and be on guard against road rage. Avoid travelling in airplanes especially from or to airports that lie in the Southwest of a city. A good day for travelling by water. Analyse emotions of anger (Moon) and think them through rationally (Mercury). Think before you lash out to sting people. Today's energy reveals your enemies to you. Deceit and betrayal openly reveals itself today. Avoid potentially explosive situations. Today's energy is mystical. Visions and dreams range on a continuum from good (guiding you) to bad (deceiving you, as in nightmares). The challenge lies in distinguishing between them and then focusing on our deepest desires. Remember, where the mind goes, the body follows.  Encounters with the spirit world, angels and ancestors are possible. A good day for mystics, psychics, musicians and jobs that require artistic vision. Today is also good for law, medicine and money making. This Mansion is good for beginning court actions and secret operations, but bad for marriage and relationships. 

Step into Magic: Develop new ideas, increase wealth. Feel your dream inside of you and know that the universe will bring to you what you desire. Use music and art to enhance your work today. Visualise and co-create your future as symbolised by the Orobis, the snake that swallows its own tail. Be-aware of messages from the Angels (Mercury). Re-write your life story and be the hero of your own adventure.
Dark Magic: Antares causes separation through death or divorce. Can bring punishment, poisoning, backstabbing, secrecy, sorcery, exorcism, black magic, horror and murder. Good for writing books to this effect.

Magic in the Psalms:
Psalm 4 - against insomnia, for a restful sleep without nightmares.
Psalm 39 - for peace of mind.

Legend: Orion boasted that he would kill all of the wild animals on earth, which prompted Artemis to send a scorpion to bring about his death. Artemis is the goddess of the hunt. With her bow and arrow she kills Orion (deer). When Orion sees the scorpio rising in the east he still runs and hides in the west. When they spot each other...9/11 Twin Tower incident.

Antareans: 
Creative genius, control freak, short tempered. Secretive with emphasis on power and risk-taking. Work better on their own and are not into partnerships. Protective caregivers concerned with social welfare. Ruled by Mercury and therefore they are deep, creative thinkers. They contemplate issues regarding the mystery and deeper meaning of life and may delve into hidden and unknown subjects. They are intuitive and sensitive. They also fall under the warlike influence of Mars and are therefore energetic and short tempered. They are also fun loving and love a fast life. They work best under pressure. They are sincere, loyal and responsible. They are broadminded and although they understand the value of time they don't like feeling restricted by mundane or routine work. They are intelligent, quick learners and know how to deal with life's difficulties. They carry a lot of restless energy.They are honest and straight-forward. They can become bitter and suspicious because of people who hurt them in their lives and think twice before befriending people. Their  personality lacks sweetness. They are honored in the society, in spite of having a restricted social circle and little known face. They rise to fame in their mid-life. In spite of their domineering characters, they are good at rendering a service to society. They are astute in business and are driven by competition, even if they just compete against themselves. They are blessed and lucky when it comes to money which may come to them from many different sources. They are materialistic and like the luxuries in life. They gain from property and will attain fame and wealth later in life. Their family, especially their children, are important to them. They are protective and responsible when it comes to their family. Ophiuchus is also known as Asclepius, son of Apollo and god of medicine. His symbol is the snake, which is symbolic of rejuvenation because the snake sheds its skin to renew its youth. Hence their youthful appearance.   The key word to describe them is deep ! They dig deep to find the truth and they have deep emotions. These people are deeper than the deepest ocean. They are mysterious and they are forever reflecting on the deeper unknown mysteries of life. They always wonder who they really are and why are they here. They make excellent psychics and psychic detectives - delving into the unknown. They aspire to get to the root of the unknown. They can master psycho-kinesis (moving objects with the mind). They know their thoughts become things. They are the true witches / wizards of the world. They are subtle and quick to anger. They are very intense. This is the dark side of Scorpio. These people have tormented personal lives. They can be aggressive, irritable, arrogant, egocentric, proud, stubborn, defensive, cruel, revenge seeking with turbulent emotions. They are like someone trapped in a hole and looking out at the people who they think put them there thinking how they will sting them when they get out. There is a constant struggle in their mind whether they should sting them or not. Maybe they deserve it, maybe not. They can fall into utter gloom and despair, and at the moment of their greatest hopelessness, rebound with tremendous energy, to transform everything that was dark into light, only to fall back into the abyss again.  They are distrustful and easily provoked and angered. They have a warfare mentality and make ruthless dictators (Winston Churchill). They have a vicious temper and can be very unforgiving.  They are capable of falling in love deeply and are very protective over their loved ones. Warrior and dragon slayer. Capable of great courage, dedication and effort. They are very sexy and easily offended if you insult or question their sexuality. Trust and respect is of utmost importance to them in a relationship. If they don't respect you, they can't love you!

     They know what they want, they go after it, and they make sure they get it.

They have a secretive side which can make them behave differently from who they are inside. They make cheerful and generous friends. They may be famous and well born. Their public image is important to them. They make good military leaders, detectives, engineers, doctors, surgeons, psychics and musicians. Antereans are knowledgeable and can accumulate a lot of material wealth. Antereans can give us our best love experiences ever, but they can also drag our souls to the deepest, darkest depths of the underworld.

Antareans instinctively know about reincarnation and the cycle of life and death. Antares people have a sense of seniority and superiority. They are protective, responsible and a leader of their family. They are wise, profound, psychic, possess occult powers, and are courageous and inventive. Antares means the eldest one, the senior most, the chief one, more excellent than, preferred one or someone or something supremely glorious. The person born under this star is full of luster and splendor, achieves fame and greatness, is rich, brave, a hero and an excellent conversationalist.

The chief deity is Indra, the King of the Gods and protector of heroes. He is the divine warrior and "dragon slayer." He rides the mighty elephant, carries the thunderbolt and demonstrates the power of truth. Indra is known for his daring nature, courage, power, and glory. Antares allows us to reach the summit of our personal powers but it requires great courage and effort. People born under Antares possess a mixture of the qualities of Mercury and Mars.

Antares born have excellent physical stamina and a good physical appearance. They usually maintain a good figure through life because their warlike mentality includes self-discipline. These qualities make them appear like a very proud person, but the facts are actually different. When they are young they are not very clear about the profession they want to pursue for life, and hence keep on changing jobs or the lines of business. They are experts at working with their hands and at fashioning metals. They can be involved in spiritual practices while simultaneously entrenched in materialistic pursuits.The primary motivation of Antares is material prosperity. They are artistic, love ornaments and have expensive taste. They are brave, philosophical and multi-talented. They are dreamers and understand quantum physics and the dynamics of reality.

Antares is the heart of the Scorpion. Antares means, "rival of Mars". This is a military, political star, gives a drive for power, honors with possible sudden loss. Mythologically Antares was the oldest of the 27 sisters and felt betrayed and jealous of the fact that Soma their husband favored her younger sister Rohini (Aldebaran - bull's eye).   There is a sense of betrayal and abandonment indicated by the myth.

They have a sense of seniority and superiority due to age and experience. They are very protective of themselves and loved ones. They possess hidden occult powers. They are the wise ones who have the wisdom that only age and experience can give. As the patriarch or matriarch of the family they are the ones who will run the show. They know how to deal with wealth and power. Their lives are not easy and some may experience hardship and poverty. They are reclusive, secretive with few friends. Their inventive profound minds provoke them to seek the deeper meaning on life. At times they can be arrogant and hypocritical, because of their low self-esteem. They are extremists and can exaggerate and overdo things. They are control freaks.

Moses, an Antarean, was placed in a basket to carry him to safety and in to the Egyptian King's Palace. He grew up not knowing who he really was. In a fit of rage he killed an Egyptian for beating up one of his people. He then went into exile, only to come back with a vengeance. He brought ten deadly plagues  to Egypt to fight for his cause and free his people. He performed miracles and parted the sea. He left many dead bodies behind. He went in to a mountain and fasted for forty days. On returning he was so upset with what the people were doing he returned to fast another forty days and came up with the ten commandments which still guide morals and values today. He prayed for food and manna fell from heaven. He wandered through the desert for forty years and led his followers into the promised land, but never actually saw it himself. The above is a perfect description of the Antarean's life. Many of them come into life as a surprise or are actually smuggled in. Anger moves them to return from exile, often self-imposed, with a vengeance. They may leave many dead bodies behind without lifting a finger. They are determined,persistent and make strong leaders. They manifest miracles but may not see the promised land because of their pessimism and because they can fall into the abyss of depression. The influence of other planets and the placement of the moon should also be taken into consideration.

Ophiuchus symbolises a process. In order to get from Scorpio to Sagittarius we must wrestle with our inner serpent power, and gain greater knowledge and control of the secrets of life and death which the serpent holds. The Serpent is the holder of wisdom and healing.  Love is the pathway.  It takes us out of the illusion of matter and into the reality of spirit.  Its about the ascension or awakening of our own souls to a higher energy vibration.  Ophiuchus is about being symbolically reborn into eternal life.  The serpent flows in a spiral (vortex) and is inherent in all life forms including our DNA and chakras.  We are in an era of awakening (ascension) of consciousness into our Light Bodies (Christ within).  Vortex spirals that move clockwise bring higher energies into matter.  Anti-clockwise moves into spirit; the 11 consciousness of unity; and the councils of light (heaven).  Basically we need to lift our energy and consciousness to a higher dimension (love and joy) to enter the kingdom of heaven or the promised land.  So in order to manifest prosperity on the material plane we need to vibrate the energy of love and joy.


Legend:  Ophiuchus represents the healer Asclepius, who learned how to overcome aging and death by observing a serpent bringing another healing herbs. To prevent the human race from becoming immortal under Asclepius' care, Zeus killed him with a bolt of lightning, but later placed his image in the sky in honor of his good work. He is also Imphotep - doctor, sage, high priest, scribe, visionary, astrologer and hereditary noble - wears the crown Corona Borealis.

In 1997, James Spotiswoode published a scientific paper on experiments in ESP and remote viewing. The results showed that when the Galactic Center rises, there is a massive increase in human intuition and psychic ability. Thus the Ophiuchus full moon today makes people more intuitive and perceptive.

Energy vibrated: Healing and finding creative solutions to problems, addictions and denials. Bad ideas are uprooted and replaced with more workable ones. 

Spell Work: Healing and connecting with animals. Talisman to destroy enemies. Read psalm 1 and psalm 91.

Ophiucheans / Ascleopeans: guardians of wisdom and eternal youth.
They are bright eyed, sexy, good looking, proud, respectable, independent, kind-hearted, love luxury, religious, philosophical, extremely clever and capable. They have very strong characters and seek true peace, wisdom and harmony. They will succeed in life. They have high hopes and big dreams and the inherent ability to make it come true. They are the salt of the earth and like the Phoenix they rise from the ashes of their setbacks. They are famous for destroying their enemies. Many people are envious of this subject as he progresses well throughout life. A seeker of wisdom and knowledge. Eccentric and generous to a fault. Tends to go for the more flamboyant in dress sense, favoring bright colors. Authority looks upon him well. Would make a great architect or builder. Number 12 is this persons lucky number. This person will have a big family but leave home at an early age. Shape-shifters.
Roots - These people are very deep (like roots) but conceal it with their friendly yet evasive manner. They grow because their roots are deep and strong. They stand firm in storms and winds and sustain themselves. Firm believers that the past is the best predictor of the future and always relate their lives to previous events that happened. Like Freud and Jung they embrace the fact that all deep rooted issues lie within, so we have to dig deep within for the answers. They have to follow the shamans journey of going into the underworld to fight and conquer their deepest demons to emerge victoriously in order to help others. They are philosophical and search for the reason for their being. They uproot darkness and plant seeds of truth in its place - turning darkness into light. They need to get to the root of things so make good researchers, investigators and detectives.  Roots lie underground so they are into underworld / unconscious issues such as counseling, hypnosis, mysticism, clairvoyance, spiritualism, reincarnation, meditation, metaphysics, tarot, numerology, feng shui, vastu, telepathy, telekenesis and communicating with angels and the spirit world. Because the Galactic Center Portal where Ophiuchus lies has opened, these are the people to listen to. They are the ones who instinctively understand quantum physics and the mechanics of reality. They have direct access to the collective unconscious, the mind matrix that contains all human possibilities, past, present and future in the form of archetypes. They understand and present great truths and mysteries in archetypal ways such as presented by the archetypal characters in Walt Disney (5 Dec) and Steven Spielberg (18 Dec) movies. Avatar; Star-Wars; Quantum-Leap; Back-to-the-Future; Thousand-Words; What-the-Bleep-do-we-Know; and The Secret - all brilliantly explain the mechanics of the mind and quantum physics. Parents of Ophiuchus children should teach them with pictures rather than words.

Sage-like, very spiritual and deeply in awe of the Divine. They can induce and endure severe self-denial and self-punishment in order to attain enlightenment. They instinctively understand the connection between the rose / lotus and the iris of the eye to the Galactic Center. All manner of chanting lay deeply ingrained in their super-conscious memory.


They have a deep love and understanding of animals and are telepathically linked to them. They understand and are connected to the animal spirit which aids with growth and healing. They feel their pain and fight for animal rights and as a result may turn vegetarian. For example Daniel in the Lion's Den who received the gift of vision after turning vegetarian.


The Serpent represents medicine and healing power. They are the natural healers, doctors, counselors, sages and shamans (psychics) in this world. They normally look younger than their age and are the ones seeking the the antidote to aging. It also symbolises a profound knowledge of the stars, astrology and astronomy. Serpent knowledge is a special kind of knowledge that can be obtained through fasting and meditation. Ophiucheans were born with natural awareness. The Serpent symbolises wisdom of all knowledge on earth. The Serpent gives luck and immunity from its venom to those born under its protective rule.
Serpentarians try to escape the routine, dull, and ordinary aspects of their life. They try to find new things that will make their life more exciting and stimulating. But with every effort of this kind, circumstances, duties, and obligations seem to hold them back, keeping them stuck in an oppressive situation. They may get to a point where the pressure is unbearable, and then they will make a sudden break for freedom. They may suddenly leave a relationship, an oppressive job, or place of residence, without warning anyone.  They are kind and generous in the extreme, but people may misread this as weakness.

Ophiuchus influence suggests that a part of one's divine consciousness still hearkens back to a previous incarnation, not in Earth, but in the sacred-but-terrifying world of the Galactic Sun. There they lived in a god-like state which may cause them to push their luck, behave recklessly and take crazy risks in this life because they still feel larger than life. They may suffer from addictions and phlegm on the chest. Their dark side might make them lustful, non-compliant and involved in witchcraft. They are drawn to nature and enchanted gardens. They vibrate to the numbers of the sun - 111, 19, 28, 37, 91. Find the placement of Ophiuchus in your birth chart to find its influence in your life or find out who are the Ophiucheans influencing your life (including me) - their birthdays are between December 2 -  30 and those born the year of the Pig.
