Looking Back: And Now for the Good News

Posted by Planet Waves


In tonight’s program I decided to look for the bright spots of 2015, to counteract the constant flow of depressing and enervating news. As it turned out, I found quite a few highlights to share. Music is by the Grateful Dead, in the best Planet Waves New Year’s Eve tradition.

Dear Friend and Listener:

In tonight’s edition of Planet Waves FM [play episode here] we have the season finale.

Depressing news is becoming unfortunately commonplace recently, so for this program I decided to look for the bright spots of 2015. As it turned out, I found quite a few.

Marriage equality is surely one of the highlights of this past year. Others include the legalization of cannabis in several places, the deal with Iran on nuclear technology, and the hospitality and aid shown to Syrian refugees, especially in Germany.

There has also been a revival of interest in left-wing political movements. Bernie Sanders in the U.S., Justin Trudeau in Canada and Jeremy Corbyn in the U.K. are all examples of this.

In the Planet Waves New Year’s Eve tradition, this episode features the Grateful Dead, with song selections from the very end of their career.

I would like to wish all my readers and clients a joyful, prosperous and peaceful 2016.


PS — We’ve already received this kind comment from Alice Liu: “Great Vision Quest written reading for Cancer, Eric. It cleared up a major confusion. And the concept of liminality and initiation makes so much more sense to me than the overt struggle for success. Can’t wait for the audio reading!”

    Thanks, Eric… I loved all you said about Bernie Sanders in tonight’s PlanetWavesFM… In checking his bio a few days ago, I’d noticed he was born in The Chinese Year of the Metal Snake (as was FDR ;-)

    Listening tonight, as you said his Moon is conjunct Eris, was an unexpected mega-bonus for me… It stirred giggles in having just downsized to $7.77 Reader to add extra to his campaign!! Shall view it as verifying all good occurs in right-perfect timing. May you all ways be blessed for extending Vision Quest’s pre-order access a bit longer… My written copies have me busy whilst I reset from 2015 to 2016… Yup, from all I’ve read so far, halfway into Pisces, it’s both amazingly spot-on and timely ;-)

    This photo of Bernie Sanders makes me smile all over. So grateful that he’s running — I appreciate his politics AND enjoy his very Aquarian ways … um … is he Aquarian?? Well, he seems so to me. Funky, smart and about the people. Go BERNIE.

    Me too Mary; what a charmer he can be. He is a Virgo Sun native but his natal Ceres is in Sagittarius conjunct the Galactic Core when he was born, both at 26+ Sagittarius. He DOES “nourish” our hopes and dreams for a United States worthy of the name and history we once admired.

    Bernie is awesome. Eric, I love your campaign promise for New York Governor! I reckon that would apply far further afield, including here in the UK. ;)
