Dear Friend and Reader:
Later today the Moon moves into Pisces just a couple hours before Mercury enters Taurus. This kind of harmony blends dreamy and sensitive feelings with grounded and methodical expression — not a bad combination, especially if you’re involved with creative pursuits.
It also might help to take the edge off tomorrow’s Venus-Saturn opposition, which spans the Gemini-Sagittarius axis. If you feel like you’re running up against any challenges or limits in your finances or relationships today, that might be why; see if you can lean on the duality of Gemini to see more than one possibility at once.
Eric will consider the current astrology, as the Sun moves through its last week in Aries, in today’s edition of Planet Waves FM. He’ll also be looking at the event chart for Hillary Clinton declaring that she’s a presidential candidate. Her announcement came just after the Moon left Capricorn and ingressed Aquarius.
In his discussion, Eric will talk about the many versions of Hillary’s chart. Her birth data is rated as “DD” or dirty data — there are several conflicting birth times. Is she Scorpio rising (that’s what most astrologers think), Gemini rising (that’s another possibility) or is she early Cancer rising, as proposed by research astrologer A.T. Mann?
In addition, he’ll continue the discussion of the Millennials, and keep wiping away the fog from the discussion of the impact of digital technology. Machines without souls may be teaching humans that they have souls. But at what cost? Eric’s musical guest will be Sloan Wainwright.
On the Planet Waves blog this week, Eris reigned supreme: not only did Eric feature the Sun-Eris conjunction in this week’s Monday Astrology Diary, but we also featured two Planet Waves archive selections about Eris in a post on Sunday, titled Reacquainting with the Castaway Self Through Eris.
Elsewhere on the Planet Waves website, we have:
— Sarah Taylor’s tarot reading for the week, which speaks to how a heavy heart can feel like it is holding you down and back. Yet if you look carefully, you’ll see you have an Ace up your sleeve.
— Stanley Siegel, guest-writer and editor-in-chief of Psychology Tomorrow, considers how anger can heal us, ultimately balancing us as we use it to find affirmation and integrity.
— Judith Gayle considers that we have the option to change how we fit into “this little box of ours,” if we’re willing just to push a little on this world that is changing, too.
Later today, Len Wallick’s column will publish to the website, and I’ll be back first thing on Thursday with a post about the weekend’s astrology.
