This is the Whole Problem, and it Always Was

In tonight’s edition of Planet Waves FM, I focus exclusively on Trump’s threat to wage nuclear war against North Korea. Putting the nuclear arsenal into Trump’s hands was the whole problem with having him be president. Well, it was one of the problems, but it’s the genuinely existential threat. Nobody should have the power to detonate a nuclear bomb, and certainly not this person, who casually asked the generals why nuclear bombs were not used more often.

In tonight’s Planet Waves FM, I look at the recent disasters in our era of consequences. I look closely at the astrology of our moment, and recent events as an outgrowth or physical representation of the eclipse. I also give a talk on the concepts “liberal” and “conservative,” and how these notions are completely convoluted and even reversed at this time.

Tonight’s program is a tribute to Walter Becker of Steely Dan, who died at age 67 on Sunday. The show is rich with my personal Steely Dan favorites, and I read his chart as well. Also, this evening we have a live event on Planet Waves FM, which will start at 6 pm on our live stream. You can tune in to the stream whenever you feel like it (we run nonstop Vision Quest recordings).

Mercury Retrograde Will End on an Interesting Note

In tonight’s edition of Planet Waves FM, I look closely at the last days of Mercury retrograde, which end with a kind of revival of the Aug. 21 total eclipse of the Sun. Mercury makes a conjunction to Mars, then stations direct, in the eclipse degree — which is close to the president’s rising degree. That means a whole new kind of mishigas is on is way. Get ready.

Most of this week’s program is Sunday night’s invocation of the total eclipse. All of us at Planet Waves have spent months explaining the event from spiritual and psychological perspectives, in language. By the end, the only way to express things was in rhythm and tone.

In tonight’s edition of Planet Waves FM, I survey the world as we approach Monday’s total solar eclipse. However, we also travel back in time to August 1999, when a comparable event was approaching: the infamous grand cross total solar eclipse of Aug. 11 that year.

The Eclipses, Slutty Sunday and The Doors

Tonight’s Planet Waves FM visits the astrology between the eclipses, which includes Mercury stationing retrograde, many aspects involving asteroid goddesses (especially Mercury conjunct Vesta). We visit the Slutty Sunday party at Oasis in midtown Manhattan, and hear from The Doors — B-sides from LA Woman.

Today would have been Jerry Garcia’s 75th birthday, and commemorating that I have a musically rich program. I’ve squeezed my brain, my iTunes library and the internet to find the best of Jerry for those listening for the first time, or with new ears.

First, thank you to my listeners and readers for providing the funding we need to tell the world about The Gemstone File in a professionally distributed press release going out soon. We will send a copy to this list once it’s ready for distribution. Your contributions make Planet Waves FM and The Gemstone File possible. Today’s edition takes us one step closer to the total solar eclipse of Aug. 21. I look at the Sun and Mars in Leo, and consider this past Sunday’s first of two Leo New Moons. Music is by Talking Heads.

Madness is unfolding by the hour with the Trump campaign/administration’s ties to Russia coming out into the open. We now know that campaign chairman Paul Manafort, Donald Trump Jr., and the kid whose name I forgot — Jared Kushner — all met with a representative of the Kremlin to talk about dirt on Hillary Clinton.
