In tonight’s edition of Planet Waves FM, I look at the upcoming Mercury station retrograde in Taurus and consider Mercury retrograde as a phenomenon of the mind. I then study the astrology of Prince Rogers Nelson, and conclude by marking the 30th anniversary of the Chernobyl disaster.

Dear Friend and Listener:

In tonight’s edition of Planet Waves FM, I look at the upcoming Mercury station retrograde in Taurus and consider Mercury retrograde as a phenomenon of the mind.

I then study the astrology of the virtuoso musician and visionary being, Prince Rogers Nelson, who was found dead Thursday at his home at the age of just 57. I include interviews with a prior manager and recording engineer. Thanks to Amanda Painter, who helped research this section of the show.

Finally, I commemorate the 30th anniversary of the Chernobyl disaster. We have a number of features marking this day on Planet Waves, including a resource page, an article from the archives and some charts below. Thanks to Anatoly Ryzhenko and Carol van Strum for their help researching this subject.

Music is by…well, I’ll leave you to guess.

With love,

    Hello.
    Please convey to Eric that his recent reading on Prince was beautiful. I enjoyed his clarity and perfection with regard to tying the person to his chart. Eric is a master at his craft.

    Eric: thank you for demonstrating a comprehensive synthesis within the diversity of the subject matter you discussed in this broadcast. Once again you affirm the efficacy of astrology when it come to bringing together and making sense of either the world on the outside or the world on the inside.
