Venus Retrograde, Sun in Leo and Astrology for Artists

Posted by Eric Francis

preview2

In tonight’s edition, I look at the combination of the Sun and Mercury ingressing Leo, just as Venus stations retrograde. I also read the chart of Marshall McLuhan on his 104th birth anniversary, and look at how his media theories express themselves in his chart. And I look at the chart of Donald Trump, for some perverse thrills. Finally I end with an overview of my “astrology for artists” theory. Music today is from David Byrne’s The Knee Plays, a work of art by one of the great artists of our time.

    Great show Eric. I dug the focused astrology lessons. I also felt the bit about how we all contain Trump’s chart, as well as Mcluhan’s, making the point we are all capable of anything. It’s all about what we tap into. Peace!

    Interesting……………thinking about self criticism/perfectionism as a huge block…..bumping up against the “You are not good enough………..” mind set……Looking forward to your work…………
