Hello and good evening,
The Sun is void of course right now; it’s in the last degree of Scorpio. It enters Sagittarius Sunday at 10:25 am EST. The Sun in this condition is a reminder that unusual, atypical or unlikely things are possible. This means be open to unusual potentials, because they just might manifest – and don’t take thoughtless or (being blunt) stupid chances. It’s not the night to try driving on three drinks. It’s definitely the night to call up someone you’ve wanted to connect with for a while, or to have a conversation you have been avoiding. Sun void favors unusual circumstances, including speaking the truth.

Today is an unusual day. We have two main influences: Venus square Pluto, and planets moving from Scorpio to Sagittarius. It feels like the Venus-Pluto aspect is a reminder of the depths of Scorpio, and also the potential emphasis on power where sex is concerned. How many people emphasize a kind of attractiveness, just to have power over others? One thing it’s helpful to recognize is just how powerless how many people feel, and for some, sexual power is their only option. With Mercury then soon the Sun >> Sagittarius, the message is, keep it on the light side. Keep your sense of humor. Funny is sexy and jealousy is a drag.
Always happy to hear from you.

I was having one of those weird days of not quite being able to make contact with the ground when, walking down the street a little while ago, one of my old readers noted that Neptune stationed direct today. Neptune stations, esp in Pisces, really should subtler but they have a way of being palpable. I think this is about the commitment to truth, and that seemingly fine line between what is spoken and what is not. Clue: it’s not a fine line, it’s a canyon.
Monday, October 19, 2015
The Moon is about to be conjunct Pluto in Capricorn. This is a clue that something real might happen. You might choose to take action. You might come to some recognition or emotional understanding. Remember to keep it real. That might mean taking actual action, and it might mean recognizing that anything alive must, by definition, grow and change. All living entities are also subject to some forces outside their control. It really, truly helps to use your voice.

Remember the name of the tune is Mercury conjunct Mars, square Neptune. There is all kinds of mojo in that clusterfuck and some of it’s gonna be astonishingly original. There’s plenty to be cautious of, especially anger not contained or properly directed, and/or resentment — though there’s the image of coming to terms with some deeper and once-denied, perhaps long-denied, truth.
Sunday, May 24, 2015
Today and through the week, the Mars-Neptune square is exact. One effect this may have is to tamp down the energy of Mars. Neptune acts like a cushion that absorbs the more aggressive energy of Mars. This can, however, slow down your pick up and go. So if you’re slacking off more than usual, no need to worry — take it easier while you have the opportunity. If you must pluck up some energy, then pace yourself. That is vital. Take things one step at a time and direct your energy where you know you really need to put it. You can make some real strides learning to conserve your strength and your time. Later tonight I’ll add Mercury retrograde into the equation, and comment on Venus square Uranus.
Monday, May 18, 2015
Mercury stations retrograde in a few hours, at 9:49 pm EDT. See if you can tune into that moment and feel the stillness and calm. Notice what this retrograde means for you personally, quite potentially a life review, or process of seeking understanding about yourself.
The retrograde is actually part of a complex aspect, with the Moon conjunct Mercury and exactly square Neptune. So while may feel a sense of calm and a kind of clarity, you may not necessarily be able to put it into words. There will be time for that. Meanwhile, I have a detailed article on the front page of http://members.planetwaves.net/
I’ll have more to say in tomorrow’s Core Community edition, especially about Internet security and related topics.
Remember I’ve got a detailed reading for all 12 signs here (included for All Access holders), which gives a close look at many themes and issues associated with Mercury retrograde on the spiritual, psychological and relational levels. You will not be disappointed.
Catch you in the AM with the Tuesday edition
Tuesday, May 12, 2015
In this edition I consider something I’ve been curious about for ages — the early relationship between Brian Eno and Bono. I look at Bono’s chart as well, and then give some examples of music pre and post U2’s Eno-infused transformation.
As for Brian, whose chart I read a couple of weeks ago, this is someone who has been pivotal in the development of 20c music, one of its guiding forces and in truth, inventors. It’s impressive to imagine someone whose mind is so encompassing and alive that he can sail from David Bowie to David Byrne and TH to Bono and U2 and guide these artists into their originality and true sonic landscape.
Fort those who have not got into Eno yet, I can recommend his CDs Another Green World, Thursday Afternoon and Ambient 1.
I give a preview of and reading of news events that surround the current Mercury station retrograde in Gemini, and also contemplate a series of aspects that I can only describe with the word psychosexual.
Here is a link, which should work for all players. Please let me know how that is for you.
Ta for now.
Tuesday, May 12, 2015
Good morning. Today the Moon in Pisces is conjunct Neptune. This is intuitive, clairvoyant and creative. I’ve written a short article about it here:
“Today really is a day when music ameliorates, when the colors you like make things better, and when consciously indulging beauty in some way reminds you of the many alternatives to struggle. With Venus in Cancer, a little comfort food can go a long way.”
Note, I am drawing near the end of the Mercury retrograde spring reading. This will be sent directly to All Access Pass holders when it’s ready.
All others may get it here:https://planetwaves.net/sales?product=5032
Friday, May 8, 2015
Here is some weekend astrology for you. Venus has entered Cancer, which is about the comforts of home – yet you may be feeling restless. Pull yourself past that, appreciate the comforts of your home, and get out if you want to. Part of why it’s so great to have a home is you can come back to it.
The bigger news involves Mars ingressing on Gemini Monday. Mercury is already there, warming up to its retrograde that begins the 18th/19th. Mars is likely to fire that up, though patience is of the essence. As I have often said about Mercury rx periods: it may not be broke, so don’t fix it yet. All aspects are saying be clear with yourself and others, and above all else, LISTEN! LISTEN! LISTEN!
Or as they say down in Oz, keep your ears on.
Thursday, May 7, 2015
The Moon is currently moving across the Galactic Center in Sagittarius. Earlier this morning it was conjunct Pholus, a high-energy planet and that may havecome with some unusual dreams. Remember them if you can. Before entering Capricorn at 2:16 pm EDT, the Moon makes a conjunction to Pallas, in the last degree authority with respect and avoid jumping ranks unless as a last resort. Be mindful of your role and your responsibilities and make sure you honor those first and foremost. Once the Moon ingresses Cancer, it will spend the subsequent 24 to 36 hours approaching the Uranus-Pluto square. More on that soon. See you tonight with a weekly horoscope by me and lead by Amanda.
Tuesday, March 31, 2015
Planets are on the move. There’s been an interesting mix of sign changes happening — including Mercury changing signs to Aries, and Mars entering Taurus. Mercury in Aries offers forward thinking, new ideas, assertion of those ideas, and the feeling that anything is possible. Mars in Taurus offers persistence. So I suggest you use this combination of energies while it’s available, hot and fresh. Meantime, remember that we are approaching a Full Moon eclipse in Libra. That means the energy is building, and also that it’s time to establish patterns, which is what eclipses help us do. I will have more to say on tonight’s edition of Planet Waves FM.
Friday, March 13, 2015
Mercury is now in Pisces. As with anything Piscean there are several sides to the story, which all fit rather well. One facet is the intuitive and creative aspect of Mercury in this sign. Logic is a different entity here. Intuitive leaps are possible, which may only make sense in hindsight. There’s a ‘channeling’ quality that feels like information coming through. Mercury may have to work a little harder to make its point in this sign, though the result is often artful. Then there is Mercury conjunct Nessus, covered in last night’s edition of Planet Waves. That amounts to permission to have a real conversation. In particular you may be able to give a voice to very old material you’ve been carrying around but which you have not been able to express. Be patient and give others some time to catch up with what you have been feeling (perhaps below the surface) for a long time.
Sunday, March 8, 2015
We are about to embark on a very interesting week. There are two conjunctions between personal planets and outer planets: Venus conjunct Eris and Mars conjunct Uranus. This is truly exciting astrology, though it’s also hot and restless and unpredictable.
So be cautious and aware and imaginative. Mars-Uranus and Venus-Eris have two very different vibes.
The first of these is, first, a caution to keep your cool; it’s the drive like a professional aspect. Yet it’s also sparky and imaginative and you may find yourself making spontaneous decisions. You may figure out what you want. You may surprise yourself somehow. Venus-Eris takes a novel approach to love & sex.
Remember that in our society, love and sex are subversive activities. They subvert most of our cultural values. In Aries (both of these conjunctions are in Aries btw) take the initiative in your approach to others. No need to wait around for the phone to ring.
Yes, you may have to assert yourself, break a rule or transgress a boundary, but what else is new? Be bold, be real, and deliver your message. That includes physically. You may need to pluck up a little confidence, but that won’t be too hard. Overall, the moral of the story is act consciously and pay attention.
Saturday, March 7, 2015
Today and tomorrow the Sun is conjunct Chiron. This may create the illusion that your problems are worse than they are. Chiron can have that nagging feeling of everything you need to fix or get right. So keep a s sense of proportion. At the same time, events may present you with an opportunity to take action on matters long delayed. It is an opportunity to come out of denial enough to do what you have to do. Today is also the 50th anniversary of the attack in Selma. I am concerned that Pres. Obama is speaking there under a Sun-Chiron conjunction, and were I in a position to advise such, I would suggest an extra meticulous effort at protecting him.

Mercury retrograde – it’s real. So we are resending last night’s edition to all of our subscribers. Look for that in case you didn’t get it. As for the weekend: We are now in the Mercury storm phase, so this is the time to take it slow, and take things one step and one day at a time; an hour at a time if necessary. Frustration tends to lead to more frustration, so where that becomes a factor, seek to unravel it. It’s probably better not to push against resistance; Mercury is a potent psychic vector and chaos may ensue. Take a gentle approach, and if you can, guide things inward – the natural direction of any retrograde, and a potentially rich direction of movement with Venus conjunct Chiron this weekend. Please see Thursday edition for details about that.
Wednesday, Jan. 28, 2015
Hello. The Moon is void of course in Taurus till 5:36 pm EST. That is your reminder not to push the river. While you may not be able to slack off, there is a slack quality to time itself during a Moon void, and sometimes it’s better to drift in a particular direction rather than try to push yourself there. This will avoid frustration before it happens. Remember that Mercury is also retrograde. By now you have an idea how this rx is affecting you. I find that it’s best to hum along conserving power rather than exerting it during these phases. Meanwhile the Aquarius connection of this rx is offering another pov than you might typically have – take advantage of that, and let everyone else do all the worrying.
Thursday, Jan. 22, 2015
The Moon is in Pisces as of about 7:47 am EST. Where there are clear skies the thin sliver of the Moon should now be visible at sunset. In Pisces, the Moon makes a series of conjunctions tonight and overnight, beginning with Moon conjunct Neptune at 5:26 pm EST.
Then it moves on to conjunct Mars a few hours later, followed by Chiron on Friday. Put all this together with Pisces and you get some saucier version of perception and emotional reality — a world seen through the senses of artists, poets and musicians.
It would help to focus on the more meaningful, sensual, aesthetic, pleasurable aspects of life, rather than the alternative, which could be getting caught in drama or isolation. Note also that Mercury is retrograde and this may contribute to misunderstandings or communication errors. Don’t let small things blow up into big ones. Any question you have now would best not be planned for any kind of “final” answer till mid-February, once Mercury is direct.
I’ll be back in a few hours with a late edition of Planet Waves FM, and tonight with the Thursday edition featuring the monthly horoscope and my article on the nature of Aquarius. Catch you soon! As ever you may reply to firstname.lastname@example.org or to (845) 797-3458.
Thursday, Jan. 15, 2015
Today Mars in Pisces is square Saturn in Sagittarius. Mars square Saturn might mean working through resistance or an encounter with authority of some kind. However, I view it as an opportunity to apply some kind of practical intuition to meet that very challenge. First of all pace yourself. Second, know when to apply pressure, when to unravel a stuck spot and when to watch and wait. Try these approaches gently and the feedback from your environment will give you good info to work with. Also with the Moon working its way toward New phase, we’re at the end of the monthlong lunar cycle. work to wrap up any pending business in preparation for a new and intriguing cycle — the Sun’s upcoming run through Aquarius. We are near the end of preparing Cosmophilia. I am scheduled to conclude writing Friday evening and will spend the weekend processing the audio files and responding to editor queries. Back in touch soon. See you with a regular edition of PW tonight. LOVE!
Tuesday, Jan. 13, 2015
Mars is now in Pisces, full of passion, curiosity and naked lust. You know, the meaningful, friendly kind. That’s an invitation to explore and to stretch. The cautionary note is to be real; to proceed under the guidance of sincerity. And the contradiction is summed up in what some would consider an oxymoron — honest pleasure. It is however time to burst the taboo on that, this odd hex of guilt about what is fun, feels nice, smells appealing or tastes good. I’ll say this — there are more interesting things in life than chocolate. Special note — Chelsea and TJ’s third child, Emmett Lee, was born at 8:47 Monday night in her home (in her office, in fact).
Saturday, Jan. 10, 2015
Good afternoon or evening. I’m here with a brief weekend astrology report.
There are two conjunctions right now – the Sun to the brightest asteroid Vesta, and Mars to the what may be the most unusual centaur, Nessus. The over-the-top news events of this week, from Paris getting turned upside down to the prosecution of General Petraeus, give us some clue about how these are manifesting on a public scale. Privately, I think they are more introspective. To who and what are you the most devoted? How do you show that? That’s Sun-Vesta. On what occasions is it gloves-off, no rules, no honor? Where does your mind go when you think of the words “accountability” or “consequences”? That is Nessus. These are questions not suited for the comics page. you may not even need to ask them; Mars and the Sun often make themselves known with no help.
Reply by email if you want.

Welcome or welcome back to Pocket Service! I am the astrologer in your pocket, and today I’m here to remind you that the Cancer Full Moon happening. It’s exact at 11:53 pm EST (04:53 UTC). This is an unusual Full Moon for two reasons – one being that it’s exactly square the lunar nodes, giving it the influence of an eclipse. Second, it’s directly aligned with Uranus and Pluto, so it brings that perhaps abstract aspect – the 2012 era aspect – out of the background and into some tangible form. I will have more to say in an Astrology Diary that is currently posted tot the PW website and which will arrive in your inbox as soon as we finish the mailable page.
Saturday, Dec. 27, 2014
I was feeling a little odd in that indescribable way, and checked the chart – the Moon is void of course in Pisces. Aries ingress is 1:35 am EST 06:35 UTC). There is one aspect happening currently, though technically exempt from Moon void (i.e., not a ‘real’ aspect) which is Moon square Ceres. This may have a wistful sensation to it, which I suggest you not try to drown in unfood or alcohol. Stick to what is nourishing, and what you know will actually help you feel better rather than worse.
Reminder — everyone will need to re-register for this service on 1/1. We will send all current AAP and CC members a reminder notice via email. Pocket Service is part of your 2015 AAP or CC Pass if you have renewed! If you have not, we’ll send out a reminder soon.

As of a few hours ago, Saturn is now in Sagittarius. This is a story that’s as much about how this sign of utmost importance affects us all, as it is about the experience of Saturn. Sagittarius is a direct link to “the beyond” and to the non-physical realm. It has been in a state of wild chaos for many years. The presence of Saturn in my estimation will help focus, ground and make useful many of the developments that get classified as spiritual or mystical. Saturn has a distinct “get serious” and “get real” message — which in our day translates to focus and applying oneself to practical tasks. The Sagittarius bit supplies the vision, inspiration and energetic impulse to create.
Sunday, Dec. 21, 2014
We are now in the last hours before solstice, which is tomorrow early evening U.S. time. Really, the days surrounding it are the solstice as well, when the Sun seems to stop on the horizon at its southernmost extreme latitude. This can have the sensation of being suspended, of pausing before a reversal or wondering where the Sun went. I view this as the cosmic dynamo coming to a halt and reversing itself. It’s like the moment when a bounced ball reaches its highest point and then stops before returning to Earth.
Monday, Nov. 24, 2014
We are watching the Ferguson situation. Chart for 8 pm CST has a “day of rage” feeling — with the background of the chart being Sun square Neptune. Note that this is the proposed time for the announcement of the grand jury decision in the shooting of Michael Brown on Aug. 9. The actual announcement will arrive at about that time. We do know that the Moon in Capricorn is passing through the Uranus-Pluto square, giving this event a ‘sign of the times’ feeling.
Sunday, Nov. 23, 2014
Good afternoon — here is a summary of the one thing you need to know about the astrology this week. In a phrase, the Sagg Sun is square Neptune in Pisces. This is in effect through the week, and exact late Weds. The upshot is don’t rush into any commitment just to get it out of the way before Thanksgiving. To the contrary, pause and wait as long as you can, and make any ‘final’ commitments later in the week or early next week. The reason for this is you want to give that Sun-Neptune square time to reveal what it has to say. Spend your time flushing information out of the pipes. Listen to your intuition and as this aspect happens, and begins to separate, put together your factual information with your intuitive information and cross-check between them. Real meaning will come out of a mix of the two different factors — especially the places they seem to conflict. See you later with more on this in my Monday Diary.
Friday, Nov. 21, 2014
It’s just a few hours until the Sun and Moon enter Sagittarius, and we get the Sagittarius New Moon. Don’t worry if you don’t see a solution, or if you feel like there’s no solution to the problem as you see it. Sagittarius always sees the possibilities and rarely gets lost in the problems. That outlook starts to take hold over the weekend. There is just one wee little thing to consider, which is mixing a good strong dose of practicality with your idealism, and putting everything through a test of pragmatism. Meanwhile appreciate the coming moment of seeing what is possible rather than what is impossible. Catch you after the New Moon.
Tuesday, Nov, 18, 2014
Beware the double ending. The Libra Moon encounters a series of challenges as it moves through the Uranus-Pluto square. Aspects like Moon square Mars and Pluto, and Moon opposite Uranus, say proceed with caution and make sure you maintain your Libra balance, or at least the appearance of balance. Regarding classical planets, the aspect pattern ends tonight just past 10 pm with Moon sextile Jupiter, which suggests that you can guide things in a positive direction no matter how edgy they may seem today. However, note that the actual last aspect is Moon opposite Eris. This is a direct caution to be aware of hidden agendas. Through the course of the day I suggest you gather information and get underneath appearances, and figure out for yourself what for others is their Plan A, B and C. In other words, take a wide perspective and strive to understand the motives of others, and your own motives, as best you can.
Monday, Nov. 17, 2014
Today, tomorrow and overnight Tuesday the Sun is conjunct Saturn – which may feel heavy. Trek your way through that sensation and focus on being productive. Saturn will reward your effort with both emotional relief and the ability to get an unusual amount done in a short time. Then once the aspect has passed you may notice that the thing that was weighing on you is no longer an issue, or if it is, it’s simpler than you thought it was.
Saturday, Nov. 15, 2014
The Virgo Moon is now opposite Neptune – which is strong encouragement to make sure that whatever you’re being told is supported by the facts and figures. Society is moving in the direction of “who cares about the data?” though today would a good day to care. Timeliness and knowing the basis for decisions count.
Wednesday, Nov. 12, 2014
Moon enters Leo at 1:44 pm EST / 10:44 am PST. Till then we are technically in a Moon void, which has advantages you can use and things it’s better to avoid. In a sense everything counts for a little less under a Moon void so it’s better to not start something new unless you really have to. Alternately, negative incidents such as disagreements, arguments or decisions that don’t go your way count for less or may be entirely null. Coast, observe the environment and take care of old business during this phase, and see what the new cycle brings when the Moon changes signs.
Sunday, Nov. 8, 2014
This should be a pretty interesting week. The main event is that Mars will be passing through the Uranus-Pluto square, as described in Monday’s diary. We have one of those moments when astrology that’s usually hanging out in the background is going to come to the front of consciousness. We will get a chance to get underneath the Uranus-Pluto square and see what it’s about. But on a practical level, I will say this — take it easy. Sidestep conflict. Keep your focus on what you’re doing. And do keep some empathy going, because we are in dangerous territory where extremely self-centered conduct is concerned. Be mindful of any such tendencies and also of people who exhibit this at all. Check today’s diary for more information about that. One last thing — be careful with machinery, while driving, and doing things like climbing ladders and staircases. Please take no dumb-ass risks.
Saturday, Nov. 1, 2014
Happy New Year. Thanks for your patience with my radio silence this week. I’ve been focused on taking care of myself and attending only to basic PW duties. The old-religion year began with the Moon in very late Aquarius; it’s now ingressed Pisces and will be conjunct Neptune all day – the perfect metaphor for the thin-veil feeling of the Sun in Scorpio. The dominant energy in the sky right now is water, with groupings of planets in both Scorpio and Pisces. But keep an eye on Mars conjunct Pluto in Capricorn, which is currently developing and will be exact in one week. I referenced that in Thursday night’s edition. I did not do a Halloween piece this year, though you night like this one from the archives – Tales from the Other Side of Astrology – a collection of true ghost stories from my astrological journey.
Saturday, Oct. 25, 2014
Mercury stations direct in about two hours (3:16 pm EDT). This has been quite a spell, hasn’t it? Easy does it while Mercury changes directions and gradually picks up speed. There are still a few things left to shake out, though you may no longer feel like you’re flying into a brisk headwind. Planets are now gathering in Scorpio, which means there will be many conjunctions to Saturn over the next few weeks. That calls for discipline, though it seems like the kind associated more with progress than with stemming the tide of unexpected problems. Very interesting discussion is forming on this link, of Thursday’s edition on voting and ethics in politics.
Friday, Oct. 24, 2014
Hello. I am still gathering my thoughts on the grouping of planets now arriving in Scorpio. I will probably have a better idea how to interpret this after finishing two horoscope columns today based on the November charts. The planet that now comes into focus is Saturn, these fast-movers (Sun, Mercury, Venus) will be making conjunctions — a get serious approach to life, but just as passionate. As for today — we have passed the Scorpio eclipses, which may feel like a great relief, and Saturday Mercury stations direct. Be patient before making big plans. Take it one step at a time.
Wednesday, Oct. 15, 2014
Mercury retrograde will soon be conjunct the Sun, in an interesting mixup with Venus and Eris. Moral of the story — keep your distance from any controversy that does not absolutely involve you. Even if it does, you have plenty of reasons to stay back and hold your tongue. Reason one — most of what is going around is not the truth; it’s at best an interpretation. So remain in fact finding mode, be a keen observer, and keep your hands and your reputation clean.
Monday, Oct. 13, 2914
We are under unusually stressful astrology at the moment — in particular Mars passing over the Pholus-Ixion conjunction, covered in my Monday Diary.
Another subject is worth bringing into the discussion — how this aspect pattern may trigger past injuries, traumas or stress. The aspect pattern points to old material as well as multigenerational material, so consider that when you are pondering what might be irritating you.
Thursday, Oct. 9, 2014
Take it easy, by which I mean let momentum rather than effort carry you. Eclipses can have the effect of an energetic shock; yesterday’s is still ringing and another one is coming on Oct. 23. Meanwhile, Mercury retrograde takes getting used to, and in the climate of eclipses this is more complex. So slow down listen and most of all, feel. There are two aspects to watch for this weekend, one involving Venus and the other involving Mars — Venus opposite Uranus, and Mars conjunct Pholus. Both are reactive and will bring surprises — check tonight’s Planet Waves for more information.
Sunday, Oct. 5, 2014
The Moon is in Pisces, about to make a conjunction to Neptune. If you’re doing Mimosas with brunch, keep it down to four or five. Seriously tho, Neptune aspects can feel anywhere on the range of spacy (very) to forgetful, from depleted to creatively inspired. Neptune is water, and it can take any color, so best to shade it in with natural pigments and emotions. Stay clear. Don’t leave your camera, purse or cell phone behind anywhere. Read what you sign – Mercury is retrograde.
Saturday, Oct. 4, 2014
Mercury is now retrograde in Scorpio, for the next 22 days or so. To me this looks like the ultimate astrology for getting to the bottom of things, especially when combined with a solar eclipse in Scorpio. By things I would emphasize of a financial nature, esp involving shared finances, interpersonal communication and investments. This is the time to find out, to use what you know, and to make necessary changes based on that information. Remember that you will learn more as the weeks progress and that the station direct on 10/26 will arrive with additional information and insight. Therefore, I suggest avoiding final implementation of plans or stepping over the point of no return until all of this astrology has done its work. The idea is to make sure that you are operating from a fully informed place. One discovery will lead to the next.
Wednesday, Oct. 1, 2014
Today the Capricorn Moon is conjunct Pluto. While this aspect may lead some to worry or guilt, its primary purpose is accomplishment. Think: structure. That means the use of time, work flow, understanding and working with lines of authority, and attending to necessity first. It is essential to prioritize, and to know when, what, and what not to delegate. Keep in mind that Mercury is slowing to a station retrograde. If something absolutely, positively must be done right the first time, consider doing it yourself.
Sept. 30, 2014
The Moon is in Sagittarius, technically void of course (done making aspects till it’s in the next sign) though conjunct the Galactic Core. The combination can have a spacy feeling to it, with the Moon adrift but picking up the distant homing signal coming from the center of our galaxy. You might call it a slightly or disturbing feeling of lightness. Take in the inspiration that’s available — I recommend holding off on new enterprises until the Moon ingresses Capricorn Wednesday at 12:40 am EDT (4:40 UTC).
Sept. 27, 2014
Don’t let today’s Moon-Saturn conjunction put too serious of a cast on things. Watch out for the illusion of time compression as well. Moon-Saturn can be heavy, but it’s also practical. Make sure you don’t try to work out that heaviness on others, which would be a typical unconscious response. Sweat it out, get something useful done, and soon enough the Moon will be in much lighter Sagittarius — a whole other story that I will have for you in Daily Astrology for Monday.
Sept. 26, 2014
The Moon is in Scorpio, trine Neptune. Today will be a good day for clairvoyants working on the tourist dock in Brighton, England – more accurate than ever. Well you get the idea – emphasis on the ‘other side of the veil’ – intuition, and telepathic contact, along with an opening for music, pictures and beauty. Everyone is an honorary Pisces today, which is good for a Friday. Mercury is about to change signs. See Thursday’s edition of Planet Waves for more information.
