This is Your Brain on the Internet
In the edition of Planet Waves FM that we just published, Eric Francis continues his investigation of the impact of the internet on people and on society, through considering Monday night’s debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. The program looks at Mars ingressing Capricorn, and we have a special segment featuring an interview with someone who made a trip out to the Standing Rock protest in North Dakota with a trailer full of restaurant equipment to help them set up a proper kitchen for the community that’s forming there.

Later you have the option to reality check and make sure you’re taking the right approach. Listen to what people say to you and you’ll understand their desires and their intentions.
Written in the Planets
We’re at the end of the lunar cycle and are heading for a New Moon on Sept. 30. Now is a good time to wrap up business from the rather eventful past month. Between two eclipses, Mercury retrograde, many major aspects and Jupiter changing signs, you may have a lot to review. Yet events may be more distant than they appear in the rearview mirror of life. The point, of course, is not to spend your life looking back (as people so often do) but to proceed forward with as little encumbrance as possible. We’ll have more on the New Moon chart in Thursday’s edition.
