Tonight I have a special father’s day edition for you, featuring my dad. As I’ve grown older, I’ve become fond of saying that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. But it cannot fall in the same place. The last hour or so of the program is a conversation with someone named Joe Coppolino, who lives in Long Island with his wife Yael.

Dear Friend and Listener:

Tonight I have a special father’s day edition for you, featuring my dad.

As I’ve grown older, I’ve become fond of saying that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree [play edition here]. But it cannot fall in the same place. The last hour or so of the program is a conversation with someone named Joe Coppolino, who lives in Long Island with his wife Yael. He’s a college professor; he teaches communications.

Joe Coppolino, at home in Long Island.

Somewhere there’s a photo of me about tall enough to stand up and grab the railing of a crib, and next to the crib is a Gibson amp, and next to the amp is my dad playing a 1957 Gibson ES-350T that he still has, and I’ve got this huge smile on my face. I heard that before I heard the sound of a subway.

Speaking of music, tonight we have for you Anoushka Shankar.

The first section of the program is another take on Mars retrograde in Aquarius. I keep looking for new ways to interpret and develop this rare event, which has never happened the way it is about to; and which last happened in any form in 1971. Then I get into a discussion of the news, which morphs into a discussion of existence.

In the third segment, I do the tantra thing, and talk about the value of experimentation, and how to embark on, and manage, your experiments. You can hear the story of my early relationship with Betty Dodson.

Finally, I introduce Prof. Coppolino (who comes in about 1:15 from the end of the program), and we just kinda roll with the latest phase of the same conversation we’ve been having since I was born.

Just imagine the five-year-old me engaging with this person, in the intensity of his youth, as a grad student at New York University in the early days of Media Ecology, a McLuhan concept then in its infancy.

Are You Ready for the Sacred Space of Self?

Dear Friend and Reader:

It’s not for everyone. It may be for you. Are you ready for a journey into your astrology, and the astrology of our times? Are you ready for a full-spectrum view of Mars retrograde?

This event is in Aquarius, the sign of society and its patterns. I have done something truly shamanic, which is to be transported deep into the shadowy underworld of what is going on, right beneath the level of appearances, and the level of technology. I have witnessed and experienced things I can barely describe.

All that I’ve learned, I’ve shared in the Sacred Space of Self. This reading covers Chiron in Aries, Uranus in Taurus, and Mars retrograde in Aquarius — all of which are directly related events. (Mars is the classical ruler of Aries, where Chiron is, and Uranus, now in Taurus, is modern planet associated with Aquarius). We are working out an energy pattern.

Eric recording the Taurus Spring Reading.

Everyone feels the need for change, sometimes to an urgent depth of necessity. These readings (12 of them, plus a supplemental one on Chiron in Aries) are a guide to moving through, working with, and experiencing these energies in a creative way.

I have designed a guide to change, as society changes.

In this letter, we have three offers for you: for the readings as stand-alone, or combined with a written reading a discounted membership or extension; and then with either my written The Art of Becoming reading, and a membership. Those are listed below.

We can customize a purchase for you, though that is easier by phone. This will also get you an opportunity to talk with Amy or Ellen, and if I’m in the office, with me.

Here are your options, described a little more elegantly:

Option One — The Sacred Space of Self video readings, all 12 signs, one purchase per household (i.e., share with your kids); or individual signs. These are 40-50 minute readings, applicable to your Sun sign, rising sign, Moon sign and the astrological ideas you have of others. I consider it ethical to ‘research’ possible viewpoints of others as a means of improving communication.

Option Two — The Sacred Space of Self plus a year of Core Community membership, whether new, an extension, or upgrade and extend. Core Community gets you all of our publications, website access, and The Oracle divination tool (and intelligent horoscope archive). This includes daily, weekly and monthly horoscopes. Also included is a Planet Waves diary (beautiful new pink ones arrived) or personalized astrology kit.

Option Three — The Sacred Space of Self, plus Core Community, plus The Art of Becoming Annual Reading. This is if you are super curious, and you want to catch up. The Art of Becoming will always be relevant, though I propose you want the information that it contains right about now, or as close to now as possible.

Remember, if you’re confused or want some other options, or need help on the financial end, call us at (845) 481-5616. If you leave a message we will get right back to you.

Thank you for your business, and for trusting me as your astrologer.

With love,
eric

One thought on “Father’s Day: The Tree and the Apple

  1. abc123

    If you go back to 1971, I wonder how many other stories there are that mirror this year’s situtiaon of immigrant children being separated from their families. I know of one particular story that has been a part of my life since I was five years old.

    Seeing lots of overlap and similarities: both involved heartless Republicans. Both involved tearing a child from its mother, abruptly. In both cases the mothers were misled. Reports this year are that parents are told, “We’ll just go bathe your child. Be right back.” And then the child is taken, never to be returned.
