Solar Eclipse, Mercry Direct and the Chart of Thom Yorke

Posted by Eric Francis

We are in one of the most interesting astrological weeks in ages — on Thursday, the Moon, Venus and the Sun enter Scorpio at about the same time, followed by an eclipse of the Sun. Then two days later, Mercury stations direct in Libra. This is a lot of movement and it may have you feeling like you’re in the squeeze, under unusual stress or not knowing what to do.

We are in one of the most interesting astrological weeks in ages — on Thursday, the Moon, Venus and the Sun enter Scorpio at about the same time, followed by an eclipse of the Sun. Then two days later, Mercury stations direct in Libra. This is a lot of movement and it may have you feeling like you’re in the squeeze, under unusual stress or not knowing what to do. Easy does it — the astrology is moving fast and soon we will be in a whole new zone, the Scorpio zone.

Also in tonight’s edition I ask the question about what to do when a news chart seems to contradict the known facts. I look at two charts — one being the death of Thomas Duncan, the first and so far only patient to die of ebola in the United States, and the death of Paul Wellstone, a United States senator whose campaign plane crashed in 2002, killing him, his wife, his campaign manager and the pilots. Here is the chart, which I have chosen not to read publicly till now.

Finally, I look at the chart for the first ebola case, in the summer of 1976.

To accompany our deep and dark themes, we have the music of Radiohead; and I will be looking at the chart of Thom Yorke, its principal writer and lead vocalist.

    Hi Eric – I’m totally with you that intelligence, intuition, sexual activity and even the divine can compliment each other. Hmmmm. Maybe that’s why I’ve been heretofore wildly unpopular.

    Thanks as always for the informative podcast.

    I shall take Apollon with me to an event in support of the Olympic National Forest and surrounding communities, and opposing the permitting of Navy electronic warfare training on the 24th. “Codex” is beautiful. Thank You, Eric.

    Eric, I first heard Radiohead on the ending of the teen vampire movie ‘Twilight’. This movie has a compilation of extraordinary music. Radiohead’s song 15 Step ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WedRDYmtvX4 ) just blew my mind, especially with the dark themes central to the movie.
    If you like Bjork please then listen to the song Fletta, ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-c1XwgsL6RA) she teams up with Anthony and the Johnsons. And, if you like the sound of Anthony, from Anthony and the Johnsons (brilliant artist), listen to him singing the song “Fist full of Love” (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aKZAopePZpI). Both are sun Scorpios

    I find that with Mercury retrograde if it’s something that I have researched in the past, have been meaning to buy for awhile or something that I have done in the past, that I don’t have problems if I initiate a new element of these during a Mercury retrograde. Does anyone else have this experience?

    As for Thom Yorke/Radiohead, I fell in love with them instantly! But after ‘OK Computer’ I had the same experience as you, not liking it at first, but not giving up on it… this comes from my early days of exploring music, I often found that if I didn’t like a song at first from a band I liked or a band that someone turned me on to, that it would usually become my favorite after a few listens. (It doesn’t apply to all music…)
