“If photographers are responsible for creating or reflecting an image of women in society, then, I must say, there is only one way for the future, and this is to define women as strong and independent. This should be the responsibility of photographers today: to free women, and finally everyone, from the terror of youth and perfection.”
— Peter Lindbergh
This week, Eric looks at the astrology of JFK, his inauguration and his assassination. He believes the modern presidency is defined by Kennedy — which includes the fact that he was killed for reasons nobody seems to understand. He’s previously written two articles about this — The Ancestor (from 2013), and Storm Warnings (from 2012). You may listen to the full episode here.

If Your Birthday is Nov. 23
(The Day of Irreverence) | Get Your Sagittarius Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
Can you admit what you do not know or think you cannot do? Chances are somebody who cares about you will offer to help you learn what you need to learn. It’s especially true in relationships and social situations. This kind of reassessment might feel like an interruption, but really it’s a golden opportunity. A whole new world of self-understanding, growth and exploration opens up. Pride often cuts that process short; allowing a little vulnerability and ‘beginner’s mind’ has the paradoxical effect of allowing you to exceed perceived limitations.
Written in the Planets
How confident are you in your ability to think philosophically about negativity? Or to be precise with your beliefs, especially in conversation today? There is something to be said about ‘faking it till you make it’ when it comes to confidence — especially if you’re having a harder time than usual in pulling back from unpleasant thoughts to widen your focus and see a fuller picture. Mercury is conjunct Saturn in Sagittarius, suggesting the potential for over-focusing. Yet they are also conjunct a trio of minor planets that offer mitigating themes. One take on the cluster as a whole: be methodical, focused and cautious with things like driving, but you can offer deeply constructive insights with confidence. Keep them light, and you may shine.
