The Remarkable Conjunction of Mercury, Saturn and Pholus

Posted by Eric Francis Coppolino


Tonight I cover the utterly unique astrology of the moment, and give a long talk about dharma. Then I venture into the waters of seeking a deeper understanding of the sex crimewave that is, in true Pholus fashion, emerging and emerging in a seemingly endless stream.

Dear Planet Waves FM Listener:

I don’t want to say much about tonight’s program [play episode here]. I will say a little.

First I want to thank the many people who have responded to our membership drive for Planet Waves, and your supporter drive for Planet Waves FM.

When you respond, my life gets easier. I can hire the help that we need to deliver your horoscopes, articles and Planet Waves FM, and I can sleep better at night. You support a locally sourced, organic and homegrown media outlet that is in no way beholden to corporate America. I get to come to work and say what’s on my mind.

If you haven’t ever made an investment in Planet Waves or if you’re a former subscriber who wants to come back, you are most invited. We are better than ever, delivering a daily horoscope (along with weekly, monthly and staff-written horoscopes); articles that chronicle the strange, beautiful, scary, erratic times in which we live; and many other features.

Thank you for making an investment in us — whether it’s a dollar a month, or $1,111 a year.

As for tonight’s program, I cover the utterly unique astrology of the moment (as promised, chart below). Then I give a long talk about dharma.

Finally, I venture into the waters of seeking a deeper understanding of the sex crimewave that is, in true Pholus fashion, emerging and emerging in a seemingly endless stream. I take this on the most personal level, describing what a healing process might be like, telling some crazy family stories from my mob of incestuous Sicilian relatives, and ending with a discussion of two tantric principles: Principle One, women in harmony around powerful men, and men in harmony around powerful women; and Principle Two, seeking inner gender balance, and what happens when we excommunicate from ourselves the feminine aspect of both men and women.

Thank you for tuning in.

With love,

New Features Added:
Key Life Transits of Saturn, Chiron and Uranus

Dear Friend and Reader:

The Art of Becoming is your 2018 annual reading. This is my 20th time at the rodeo! And that’s a good thing, because to write about the transits of the coming year will take experience. If you’re new to the discussion of this project, I’ve linked a letter in the last paragraph.


Eric Francis.

I’ve added three new features to The Art of Becoming, for those who pre-order all 12 signs: videos that cover Chiron in Aries, and Aries Chiron returns; Uranus in Taurus, and Uranus oppositions; and Saturn in Capricorn, including those two Saturn return groups (first and second). These cover many age groups and sub-generations.

These videos are included if you pre-order all 12 signs. Then they will be spun off as separate products. They will not be included with post-publication orders, or single-sign orders. Each will be offered separately for $37.37 each.

I’ve wanted to do transit readings like this for years! One distinction about my astrological career is that rather than predicting transits, I’ve been listening to my clients tell me the stories of their transits for more than two decades.

The current pre-order price is $99, which includes written readings for all 12 signs, plus the Saturn, Chiron and Uranus video presentations. Those will be published before the written readings, by the way.

Delivery is expected in January. That’s the time estimate, based on 20 years’ experience doing this project. If you’re curious to read more about The Art of Becoming, here’s a detailed letter describing how I do the readings and what they contain.

And if you have not read your 2017 reading, you may do so here at no charge.

Sign up today. The next price increase will be soon!

Thank you for trusting me as your astrologer, and for participating in Planet Waves.

With love,

Sagittarius Astrology Reading by Eric Francis is Ready!

Dear Friend of Planet Waves:

This weekend, I completed the astrology portion of the Sagittarius reading. I wanted to make sure it was recorded before Mercury stationed retrograde in your sign, and before the Full Moon in your opposite sign.

Planet WavesWe’re in an astonishing moment globally, challenging though it is — though, for Sagittarius, it’s particularly amazing. Saturn is set to leave your sign. Mercury will be retrograde for the next three weeks, highlighting theĀ Saturn-Pholus-Galactic Core conjunction.

This is rock-and-roll astrology, and I’ve done a reading to match the vibrant, growth-oriented and downright beautiful quality of your charts.We have two astrology sessions for you right now. In the first, I describe the process of Saturn in Sagittarius, and what Mercury retrograde is suggesting you do, in preparation for Saturn’s change of signs.

I also talk about why Sagittarius is an utterly unusual sign, containing two deep-space points that can serve as a direct connection to source. I also talk about the relationship of Chiron to Sagittarius, which describes how to harness this energy.

In the second section, I look forward: to the sign changes of Saturn, Chiron and Uranus, which take hold between now and your next birthday. These three sign changes take us beyond the Uranus square Pluto era (2011-2015) and into the next distinct phase of astrology — a short but powerful one that will peak in 2020 (the Saturn conjunct Pluto era).

This is fresh, alive astrology that’s easy to follow. I am at my best as a motivational speaker, wherein it’s my role to make your own potential compelling to you.

You can get the reading at the current order price of $44. In a month or so, your tarot reading will follow along.

The reading includes many resources, such as articles relevant to your astrology that will provide helpful backstory, and your 2017 written reading from The Book of Your Life.

(Yes, we are over-delivering here, though the moment calls for it.)

With love, your friendly neighborhood astrologer —

P.S. If you’ve never listened to one of my audio readings, you’re invited to check out last year’s Sagittarius reading as a gift. It’s a great way to review your last year during this Mercury retrograde phase, and prepare to make the most of your new reading.

Even by contemporary standards, 2018 is a distinctive year astrologically. Many slow-moving planets change signs. In the reshaped world that follows, the 2018 Planet Waves Annual by Eric, The Art of Becoming, will help you design your own future. You may pre-order all 12 signs here for just $99.

Hi Sagittarius: Saturn is leaving your sign and Chiron will enter your house of play and creativity. In your 2017-18 Sagittarius Birthday Reading, Eric considers how you might work with the shifting sky. Order today for instant access.

    Such an intense, informational and power-pack show, that resonate so strongly with the healing journey its seems we are all on. My greatest secret is a disability called dyslexia, which was featured on \\ Even Joshua Johnson said: ‘To be able to read but can’t spell, how is that possible?’ No doubt, its probably hitting me in others ways too.

    Don’t know much about Dad’s side of the family, he’s from China: Singapore, I believe. Yes, the grandmother (Cancer Sun) who did raise me, also has her own personal controversial story. My Mom (Gemini Sun) was very protective of her, and the last child she had (9), was from this encounter (#me too?); I was named after. So, many thanks for leading me to this door (again), that I never opened up before; Moms are powerful, and they must know he’s able to hear it now.
