— Ruth Bader Ginsburg
In tonight’s edition of Planet Waves FM [play episode here], Eric interviews his friend and mentor Dr. Ward Stone. In his capacity as wildlife pathologist for the state Department of Environmental Conservation, Ward played many roles, including citizen advocate. Eric and Ward discuss the history of the environmental movement, from an angle that’s almost banned from the news: chemicals.

If Your Birthday is March 15
(The Day of the Heights) | Pisces Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
It may seem like all the change-making fireworks and revolution are happening outside of you. And while that is certainly going on, be sure you’re not missing the deeper truth about what you’re witnessing, which would be easy to disbelieve: an even more profound process of rebirth is happening within you. To facilitate that — including the need to heal the inner spaces you’re clearing out — use today to draw up a plan. The universe has wisdom to offer if you turn your full attention to the task and ask for help.
Written in the Planets
Do you feel ready to usher yourself into some new phase — particularly something regarding your body, sexual energy, material wealth or persistence in something? Today Mars in Taurus conjoins the unnamed minor planet 1992 QB1. Despite lacking the mythology that would go with a named object, 1992 QB1 seems to be associated with crossing a threshold, or with holding space to assist others who are crossing into a new phase of being. You may feel called to go “beyond the known and into the unknown as a voluntary experience of saying yes,” as was written about QB1 in the Planet Waves annual Small World Stories years ago. Know that passion and patience can indeed work hand in hand as you proceed.
