One well-placed line from an astrologer can make all the difference in your life. We now have two editions of the Four Winds Report — one with, and one without your daily reading.

“There are many different kinds of writers, I like to use the analogy of architects and gardeners. There are some writers who are architects, and they plan everything, they blueprint everything, and they know before they drive the first nail into the first board what the house is going to look like and where all the closets are going to be, where the plumbing is going to run, and everything is figured out on the blueprints before they actually begin any work whatsoever. And then there are gardeners who dig a little hole and drop a seed in and water it with their blood and see what comes up, and sort of shape it. They sort of know what seed they’ve planted — whether it’s an oak or an elm, or a horror story or a science fiction story, but they don’t how big it’s going to be, or what shape it’s going to take. I am much more a gardener than an architect.”
— George R. R. Martin
In tonight’s edition of Planet Waves FM [play program here], Eric focuses 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.

If Your Birthday is Sept. 20
(The Day of the Managers) | Virgo Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
You can never really change for the sake of another person, but you certainly can change because of them. Let others have their liberating influence on you. Be open-minded and as flexible as you can be. Mostly that means letting go of any attachment to your self-concept, and seeing what you discover about your actual self. Spontaneity will help a lot.

Today’s New Moon in Virgo is the first New Moon since the Aug. 21 total solar eclipse. Many people have been feeling the reverberations of that event quite palpably, both in their personal lives and in our collective experience. Today’s New Moon brings one phase of this experience to a close, and opens up the next stage. (Eric’s Astrology Diary for this week has a more detailed reading of the New Moon chart.) Also today: Mercury in Virgo (finally out of shadow phase) opposes Neptune in Pisces. Although this might seem to mimic some of the mental fuzziness of the recent retrograde, it’s also possible to experience great spiritual awareness of what’s usually below surface level. How do you know whether you’re perceiving deep truths or are just confused? Wait a few days, and see how things sort themselves out.
How will you activate your potential and passion to grow and become? You can start by ordering your Virgo Birthday Reading — recently published and currently at just $44 for some of the clearest, most immediately useful astrology you can find on the internet, designed for anyone with a Virgo Sun, Virgo rising or Virgo Moon.

Lizzy et al.: Former Planet Waves alumna Sarah Taylor talks about Tarot and its relationship to our emerging unconscious. Worth a look, I think.
Thanks Geoff. Watched her video this morning too. Appreciated the description of tarot as an alchemical tool, where the card quickens something inside us.
As usual, I forgot the link:
… and Mercury retrograde shadow phase is over. Must be my age!
Thanks so much for this, dear Geoff (and the wonderful Sarah)! xxx
