The magnificent Stormy Daniels, incarnation of Salacia, Eris and Kali Ma. Her 39th birthday was Saturday, and she’s about to offer the performance of a lifetime.

This is going to be an exciting week. Did I say that last week? I must have. But this week will be even more exciting, and I look at the charts on tonight’s episode of Planet Waves FM.

We first consider events at the end of Pisces last week, including the Sun-Chiron conjunction. I discuss the astonishing equinox chart, and Mercury stationing retrograde. We’re about to experience the combined effects of the Sun, Mars, Salacia and the centaur Pholus. This will be a turning point.

I cover last week’s national student walkout, as well as this coming Saturday’s March for Our Lives protest. If you want to help with coverage of that event, please email us as soon as you can. It will help if you have a basic digital recorder — though an iPhone will do.

The Rites of Spring

Posted by Eric Francis Coppolino

We are in the last days of the astrological year, which resets with the Vernal Equinox on March 20, just past noon ET.

This was preceded by the Pisces New Moon on Saturday. And it will be followed closely by Mercury stationing retrograde, which takes place on Thursday.

Starting yesterday, here’s the sequence of events in synopsis format: Pisces New Moon, very close to Chiron; Sun conjunct Chiron; Sun goes void of course; Sun enters Aries; Mercury stations retrograde in Aries. When the Sun reaches the vernal equinox, it’s directly aligned with the Aries Point, the “reset” point in the astrological year. It’s like a long day ends at midnight, and a new day begins.

The Aries Point has a special quality that seems to be dominating our lives now, which is that we’re standing in this frantic crossroads between the individual and the collective. That’s the feeling we have of being blown in the winds of change, of so much happening nobody can keep track, and of time moving so fast that it seems like we live a month in a week.

When you arrive at a crossroads, how do you decide which way to go? Though you’re a devoted student of psychology, when it comes to your own self-guidance, intuition is the first and last word. Your mental process can help at times, and get in the way at others. To figure out which is in effect, I suggest you evaluate how you make your decisions.

For someone as well-defined as you are, it is surely easy to lose yourself in what other people think, or what group-dynamics demand. This does not serve you so well because most of the world is strutting around boldly in a state approaching panic, making up for it by forming little clubs where they feel safe.

Notice how people have difficulty making changes in their lives these days. It’s not that we don’t have time; it’s that the patterns in which we live have become so crystallized, we can barely break out of them. As time creeps into the Age of Aquarius, it becomes ever-more essential that we become free from our destructive cultural patterns.

Monday Morning Horoscope for March 19, 2018

Posted by Eric Francis Coppolino


The week begins with the Sun in a close conjunction to Chiron — the last of many such events that takes place with Chiron in Pisces. While this aspect verges on too deep for words, much less a horoscope column, I will do my best. When existence is lived consciously, it can have a perilous, delicate, vulnerable feeling.

It’s time to purge any misgivings you have about sex. By any, I mean any and all. This process may take a while, though it’s also been going on for a while: the process of setting yourself free from false morality. The solution to what seems like a complicated equation is that you came to this planet to create.

You’re embarking on the time when you discover your true talent as an artist, as a lover and — most of all — as someone who trusts yourself as these things. Pisces is the sign that’s designed for pleasure, though it’s easy to get distracted from that because you place such a high value on serving others.
