Posted by Amanda Painter

Whether they know it or not, people all over the world are witnessing an event that perfectly illustrates our current high-pressure, confrontational astrology: the slowly growing beat of war drums as Saudi Arabia joins the U.S., Israel and the U.K. in blaming Iran for attacks on two oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman last week.

These events are occurring in a week that ends with the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere: the solstice, when the Sun enters Cancer to begin the new season.

“Again. Uncanny. Wow. Totally on point. So much so, I bought readings for my daughter, cousin and a friend as gifts.

But the best part isn’t the accuracy and jaw-dropping empowerment I felt; it was the delivery. Eric is so personable, so funny, so engaging, yet able to cut right to the core — it’s like talking with a good friend who loves you and respects you, and wants to see you have the best in life, and is willing to do away with bullshit by being straight and to the point in the most loving, supportive and encouraging way. I need to talk to MYSELF the way Eric talks to us! Thank you so much.”

Most people have, at some time, slipped on the line between friend and lover, and most of us avoid this territory as if it were contaminated with radiation. And many have wondered why it’s seemingly so dangerous, or why it has to be so dangerous. The answer can be summed up in a few words: expectations; dependency; jealousy; integrity.
