Tonight, celebrating the 69th birthday of Brian Eno, Planet Waves FM is a tribute to his music, as well as to art and sex. We’ll hear music spanning about 30 years of Brian’s career, from his early solo days to the early 21st century, including one movement of Music For Airports, covered by the virtuoso ensemble, Bang on a Can.
Tonight’s edition of Planet Waves FM focuses on Beltane, though first I describe the current, highly and deeply unusual Mercury station direct in Aries. That takes place Wednesday [view chart here].
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.
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.
Tonight we have something that’s got a touch of history to it: an interview with Robert Schmidt of Project Hindsight, who in July 2016 announced that he had discovered the inventor of Greek astrology, which means Western astrology.
