Special Comment: It’s Already Been an Interesting Week
First a few housekeeping items. In the tradition of the Planet Waves psychic storm shelter, we’re a place you can come for some community if things get weird or stressful this week. Conversation happens in two primary places: on the Planet Waves main page, and on my personal Facebook page (which is open to everyone).
Second, an extra-long Planet Waves FM will be published Monday night at about 7 pm EDT.
This will keep publication away from the Tuesday night crush of election coverage.
I’m planning the program as extra long to give you something to listen to in case you’re on the verge of getting toxic shock syndrome from network and cable coverage.
I have some fun segments and excellent music planned for you. I know it’s a big internet. I know there are lots of websites and all that, but none so warm as Planet Waves, with the lights on and rice on the stove.
If you haven’t secured a copy of the 2016 Scorpio reading for yourself or the Scorpio you love, you can still order it here at our lowest price until Nov. 8 and get instant access to the audio segments. Don’t miss out!

If Your Birthday is Nov. 7
(The Day of Discovery) | Get Your Scorpio Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
In general, change is only frightening in its newness. More often than not, it in fact comes as a relief, granting the freedom to make progress and leave behind what is no longer needed. Spread your wings and let the wind lift you to new heights and new adventures.
Written in the Planets
Separate contacts by Venus and Mercury have a similar message, in reminding us that life experiences start from the body. In these tense times, are you looking after your physical and emotional health? If you need to adjust your food intake, activity or stress levels, don’t listen to any voice (within or without) that says you don’t have time. You’re entitled to take care of yourself by dint of being a human person; remember that.
Storms and tornadoes hit Rome last night. Never a dull moment here these days, “Blow, winds, and crack your cheeks! rage! blow! You cataracts and hurricanoes, … .” Thinking of you all in the US. Big hugs. xxxx
Oh to be in England now that Glenda Jackson’s back on stage. ‘Tis a consummation. Devoutly to be wished.
I hope you will not be kept awake too long by the trumpeting of the Elephants of America, Lizzy.
Ha ha ha! Thanks for the laugh, Geoff! Didn’t know what you were on about, and just checked out “knickers -off Jackson,’ as my dad used to disparagingly call her. King Lear no less! Should be interesting. Elephants trumpeting, tigers and bears, oh my – bring ém on! Not getting much sleep round these parts these days, anyway…. xxxx
PS Takes me back….
Apologies for any confusion, Lizzy. Here’s a link for anyone similarly discombobulated:
Fingers crossed, America.
Love and all best wishes.
Geoff — I head about Ms. Jackson’s return to the stage as Lear this weekend, from another actor friend.
I wish I could be there to see her performance. I can just imagine she does a *tremendous* job with the lead role that brilliant and difficult play.
Hahahahaha! I had no idea she was an actress! Perhaps because she rocks as an MP too.
What?!? Amy, are actually serious? OMFG! That is hilarious!
Yes, Ms. Jackson is quite famous and well-respected as an actress.
Then again, as an American kid, maybe I had an advantage in knowing of her acting, since she once did this *brilliant* pirate number on the Muppet Show. For real — see if you can Google it.
This is what she Ms Jackson used to get up to Amy (must check out the Muppets sketch…): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=STYiWIZ-2IQ
Wonderful clip, Lizzy. I tried this once with a herd of cows and was chased out of the field. I’ve never run so fast in my life!
Me too, Amanda. Tickets are as rare as chickens’ teeth by now, I expect. One of those occasions when it would pay handsomely to beam a live performance into cinemas around the world, I should think.
Ha ha! Glad you’re still here to tell the ‘tail’, Geoff.
Yes – wish I could see it, too, Amanda. I saw that it’s a Deborah Warner, Old Vic production, so must be amazing. Thanks so much for the info and the link, Geoff. And I’d totally forgotten that she was now a politician, Amy. Been out of Blighty too long. One of my favourite films ever as an adolescent was Ken Russell’s Women in Love, with Glenda Jackson, and a lusty, tormented Oliver Reed .
