If you’re inclined toward people-pleasing, you might take a step back and ask what you want rather than what someone else wants. This includes being cautious of trying to impress anyone or show them that you’re of some value in order to get their approval. You’re currently under bold influences that are guiding you to stand your ground and claim your own ideas and way of life.
The past few days have been an unpredictable adventure, though for some reason today you can focus your mind in a different way. Take some time and get your priorities in order: determine what comes first and why. What seemed so important yesterday may have lost some of its significance and urgency, and something you may not have considered is calling for your awareness.
With the approaching end of Venus retrograde and Venus conjunct Chiron, tonight’s edition of Planet Waves FM is about the Divine Feminine. This means something different to everyone. What it means to me is a healing and creative source at the core of both cosmos and psyche, that’s available to us all the time.
This is the week to take stock of yourself. Your accounting process might range from an actual review of your bank and credit card balances, to an investigation of what you’ve learned so far this year.

Today is the 49th anniversary of the murder of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King. In tonight’s program, after I cover the current astrology, I look at Dr. King’s chart, I talk about the now well-known FBI conspiracy to destroy him, and then I play 30 minutes of his speech linking the civil rights movement to the anti-war movement. That was 50 years ago today, on April 4, 1967.
One thing that’s fast going missing here in the internet age is something known as an inner life. You can think of this as the sanctity of one’s thoughts; a private inner experience of the world; a relationship with the ‘you’ nobody knows. One reason for this loss is an unwholesome obsession with appearances and glamour: looking like something at the expense of being that thing. There’s another problem: the internet has blown our minds inside-out.
In tonight’s full Planet Waves edition, Eric describes some of his experiences living with celiac disease. He discusses navigating the variety of responses from restaurateurs, which shows how much room there is for improvement; and offers some tips on how to identify the ‘hidden’ gluten in your food.
The Sun enters your sign today, beginning the astrological year and a new season of your life. When equinox arrives, a surge of energy is released, which even the grass, the trees and the critters experience. Humans are growing less in touch with the passing seasons, though I suggest you get more in touch.
