In tonight’s show I offer a tribute to Eric McLuhan, who died on Saturday while he was traveling in Bogota, Colombia. I tell the story of the one day that I spent with Eric, in Manhattan last autumn. I also read the chart for the Sun ingressing Gemini, which it does a little later tonight, and give a reading of Mars retrograde in Aquarius and Capricorn, which begins in late June. Our musical guest is U2.
In tonight’s Planet Waves FM, I look at the chart for the Taurus New Moon, which takes place at 7:48 am EDT (11:48 UTC) Tuesday, May 15. In that chart, Mars is about to enter Aquarius, where it will be retrograde most of the summer; and Uranus about to enter Taurus, something it has not done for about 84 years.
Tonight’s Planet Waves FM — the mellowest episode ever — is the Beltane edition, with astrology focused on Chiron square Eris [see related article]. My musical guest is Brian Eno, whom you may know as the creator of the Ambient series of records, or the producer of David Bowie, U2, Talking Heads and (at least on one occasion) just about every musical artist you love.
Tonight on Planet Waves FM, I focus on Chiron’s presence on the Aries Point, and all of the associated astrology involving Mars — a conjunction to Pluto later this week, and a square to Eris next week. This highlights the new aspect that is coming out of the background, into the foreground: Pluto square Eris.
The new Planet Waves AM/FM covers the recent Mercury retrograde, Sunday’s Aries New Moon, and Chiron entering Aries this week. Eric dips into A Course in Miracles, reading from the chapter “The Dreamer of the Dream,” and at the end of the program, in Tantra Moment, talks about negotiating relationship boundaries.
In this Russia-themed edition of Planet Waves FM, I round up the local news, including the new free speech policy adopted by the Board of Education. We meet Kingston’s first Etruscan-American activist, and hear an interview with Hank Hansen, the well-known lawnmower repair man. I also pay homage to two well-loved Radio Kingston program hosts who mysteriously vanished last week.
