Antinous for Everybody

POEM: The Eagle’s Star

Antinous rises tonight
Tonight he bestrides the constellations,
bridging Aquarius and Aquila
Heralded by Muses and poets,
he ascends the heavens
to claim the Boat of Millions of Years
The archons of the underworld are defeated
Their perversions no match for his terrible beauty
Fear and hatred, greed and lust
flee from the light of his countenance
Hail, Antinous! Star of beauty in the night sky!
Hail, Antinous! Navigator of the celestial Barque!
Hail, Antinous! You are the journey, you are the guide,
you yourself are the destination!
Hail, Antinous! The beautiful boy rises in the east!

A Litany for Antinous the Navigator

In the Name of Antinous, the Navigator, the Starry Guide, the Glory of the Eagle, the Crowned and Conquering Child.
Guide us, Antinous, in the darkness of the night.
Guide us, Antinous, in the darkness of our fears.
Guide us, Antinous, in the darkness of our ignorance.
Guide us, Antinous, in the darkness of our mortality.
Guide us, Antinous, in the darkness of our depression.
Guide us, Antinous, in the darkness of our oppression.
Guide us, Antinous, by the light of your star.
Guide us, Antinous, by the light of your beauty.
Guide us, Antinous, by the light of your humanity.
Guide us, Antinous, by the light of your divinity.
Guide us, Antinous, by the light of your prophecy.
Guide us, Antinous, by the light of your love.
Guide us, Antinous, when we are lost and confused.
Guide us, Antinous, when we struggle to find a path.
Guide us, Antinous, when the road seems endless and without destination.
Guide us, Antinous, when our chains have fallen,
when we are free at last, but know not what to do with our freedom,
where we ought to go, or how to help others.
Guide us and teach us, Navigator of the heavens.
Guide us and teach us, Victor over the archons.
Guide us and teach us, Lover of souls.
Guide us to shine in the heavens in our divinity
as you do, O Emperor of Peace.
Ave, vive Antinoe!
