In tonight’s edition of Planet Waves FM, I look at the most interesting day of 2015 — Thursday, Sept. 17. What’s so interesting? All the fanfare surrounding the Saturn ingress of Sagittarius: the Jupiter-Neptune opposition, Saturn square Nessus, Sun square Pholus, Venus quincunx Chiron and Mercury stationing retrograde.
Saturn in Sagittarius is the main event — the rest is just a big astrological party honoring this transit. And what is Saturn in Sagittarius about?
I think we will see a real meeting between the dogma of Saturn in Sagg and the unraveling power of Neptune in Pisces. I pay special attention to Saturn square centaur planet Nessus, which is in effect the moment Saturn ingresses Sagittarius.
I devote plenty of the program to the permutations of Mercury retrograde (and as promised, here is that resource area).
My musical guest is Bob Dylan, who I feature from time to time — songs from his 1983 album Infidels.
I tell the story of this album and where it fits in the history of Dylan’s repertoire (preceded by the Christian trilogy), and his collaboration with Mark Knopfler, the record’s producer.
This is the “no news is good news” edition where I take a break from current events and keep things super duper personal.
Many thanks to Jeff Rosen at Special Rider Music.
PS — I’ve been hearing from Libras all day about what you’ve been going through the past few years. I will be responding in the Libra reading for 2015-2016, which is now available for preorder at the best possible price. Here is how to order.
One of our Leo reading customers just sent in this comment today: “I’ve listened to these each three or four times, and will continue to repeat them again. Your readings are so rich with information, deeply congruous, and could not be more pertinent to my life and situations. I do not claim to be audience to many, as I have an audience of my own that I serve, but your voice is one of those that I count on. I cannot express greater appreciation for the services of any one person in existence.”
You’re Ready for This — and Planet Waves Has You Covered
Dear Friend and Reader:
We are in the eclipse zone: Sunday morning was the Virgo New Moon and partial solar eclipse; Sept. 27 will be the Aries Full Moon and lunar eclipse. In these two weeks between them, we’ll experience several major astrological events — and you may encounter interesting opportunities you can choose to act upon.
For some extra guidance, we have the September horoscopes Eric wrote for Marie Claire magazine for you.
Eric covered this week’s astrological atmosphere in Monday’s Astrology Diary. He writes there, “When the waters and other energies are moving this briskly, it’s essential to know where you want to go. Look in that direction.”
The option (and ability) to choose is a focus of this week’s tarot reading by Sarah Taylor: choice (and compassion as a choice) has the potential to change the direction of your life.
If the thought of choosing, planning and organizing (boosted by all the Virgo energy in the air) gives you anxiety, check out Madame Zolonga’s thoughtful reply to a woman with a Virgo North Node: baby steps, observing how you feel, and breathing are key.
Speaking of Virgo: Eric published the Virgo Birthday Reading last week. If you have a Virgo Sun, Moon or rising sign, this period between eclipses would be ideal to listen and put the astrology to work for you (or for a loved one as a gift). You can listen to an audio preview here.
Judith Gayle touches on the confusion between ‘infotainment’ and actual facts in our culture; we’d do well to consider that almost all of what we see around us is configured as entertainment, and what we take in affects who we are.
In her column from Sunday, Amanda Moreno reviews her physical and sexual ‘detox’ phase of Venus retrograde, combined with Saturn in Scorpio — and welcomes a renewed sexual energy to go with her clarity about aligning with her values and fluctuating needs.
And in a back-to-school sex-and-relationships special of sorts, we’ve featured a recent episode from John Oliver’s late-night show on HBO, in which he takes on the sorry state of Sex Ed in the U.S. Abstinence indoctrination is still rampant; Oliver breaks it down — with humor, pathos, and a couple of WTF? moments.
Len Wallick’s column published earlier today, and I’ll be back Thursday morning with your weekend astrology — just in time for Mercury stationing retrograde in Libra (and a boatload of other significant astrology). It’s a busy week, but one you’re ready for.
Yours & truly,
