At this time in your life, some of the most important soul-level work you can do involves sexual healing. This process has been in progress for about six years, since Pluto entered Capricorn, your solar 5th house. Pluto describes what one author famously called “the evolutionary journey of the soul.” Normally the 5th is the place we seek fun and pleasure, though you have Capricorn in this house, which can act as a reservoir of past conditioning.

The time is fast approaching for Eric’s insightful astrological tour of September. Do not miss Thursday’s edition featuring your extended horoscope for the month!

The shooting of an unarmed black teen has sparked riots in the small town of Ferguson, Missouri, focusing the national conversation on racial conflict. Eric investigates the astrology of this event and looks at the systematic oppression inherent in our society. The Uranus-Pluto square offers an opening to transform the shadow material we’ve inherited, but part of that healing involves an honest conversation about where we are at in our modern era.

You don’t have to push yourself so hard, especially around financial or family issues. And you don’t have to worry, even though that would seem to be one of your ‘natural’ inclinations. Worry is like driving with the brakes on; energy that could go into momentum is put into heat and unnecessary wear and tear.
What happens when three inner planets make contact with outer planet giants? Eric describes the unique astrology occurring as Venus and Jupiter connect in fiery Leo, Mercury opposes Neptune and Mars aligns with Saturn in Scorpio. This is an usual opportunity to produce tangible manifestations of our dreams, and a planetary reminder to act in the name of the greater good.
I’ve long been a fan of the Woodhull Sexual Freedom Alliance. They are among the few people who have had the guts to stand up to abstinence-only indoctrination, which has been imposed on kids since the early 1980s.
