    In tonight’s program I look at the current Sun conjunct Neptune aspect, and describe the how Neptune works and how Chiron works as an astrological factor. I offer some perspective on the visual illusion of television vis a vis Marshall McLuhan, the grandfather of media theory. Then I look at the natal chart of Kurt Cobain, whose 48th birthday would have been Feb. 20. In the last section I talk about the differences between a natal chart, a solar chart, whole sign houses and a sidereal chart — an excellent primer on chart types that will be fun for anyone to listen to.

    Tonight’s program covers Wednesday’s hybrid Aquarius-Pisces New Moon, and then continues with an interview with David Christopher, executive producer of a film called The Seed. This is the story of a family farm confronted by a Monsanto-like corporation. The interview provides a basic introduction to the issue of genetically-modified foods, and to Monsanto, and to the plight of farmers who are fraudulently sued by Monsanto for patent infringement.

    Tonight’s program is dedicated to Mercury stationing direct — with special attention to the themes of Mercury in Aquarius. I look at the current astrology, which includes Sun, Vesta and Mercury in Aquarius, ans many planets in Pisces. I cover events out to the Aquarius New Moon, and the Moon and Sun ingressing Pisces on Feb. 18.
     
    Then, I consider the influence of digital life on our actual life, or rather, the ways in which they are merging. This is a bigger than we know, stranger than we’re aware and it is indeed a transformation of epic proportions. As part of this discussion, I look into the scenario wherein Brian Williams lied about his experiences as an embedded journalist in Iraq.

  • You May Listen to Current Birthday Reading Samples for Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius

    You May Listen to Current Birthday Reading Samples for Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius

    The audio links on this page (click title, above, for access) are the first section of the Sagittarius, Capricorn and Aquarius birthday readings. These are paid products, though I want to share with you a bit of them so you can get a feel for what I do. The readings are in three sections, which include a tarot section in the third part. As you may know, I do a reading through the year for each of the 12 signs, when the Sun is in that sign. This is different from the our annual edition (this year, called Cosmophilia) , where I release all 12 signs at once. The readings are different as well. Even given the depth and scope of the annual readings, I have plenty more to say.

    Tonight’s edition looks at the Leo Full Moon, which is (or was) exact at 6:09 pm EST (23:09 UTC). This Full Moon includes many interesting features — Mercury retrograde in a conjunction with Vesta; a grand trine in the fire signs (Moon, Pallas, Uranus), a kite pattern (add the Sun) and many other nuances. I spend as much time talking about Mercury retrograde conjunct Vesta as I do about the Full Moon — I love describing Vesta. I give a good summary of next week’s Mercury station direct. After a musical interlude by Eric Nicolas, I offer some perspectives on how our total immersion in digital life is influencing our relationships and sexuality. Actually, it seems like I sketch out some of the possibilities, describing the digital environment and then considering how, specifically, sex and sexuality play into our lives.

    In tonight’s edition, I cover the astrology of Venus conjunct Nessus and Mars conjunct Chiron. I introduced this in Monday’s Astrology Diary (free OR paid registration required to read that article). In tonight’s extended program, I expand the conversation to include specifically sexual themes of bisexuality and selfsexuality. This is not a discussion you’re likely to hear many places — my perception is that actual bisexuality is left out of the queer discussion, at least most places that discussion happens. However, “gender queer” and “trans” have to a large extent entered that vacuum, and now bisexuality can exist on the fringes of that territory.

    In tonight’s edition, I look at Mercury retrograde from a number of different angles. I tell some stories from the final days of producing Cosmophilia, including how we experienced the Mercury retrograde effect. Then in the second part of the program, Daniel Sternstein and I consider what happened in Paris just two weeks ago, and note the differences in how it appeared from Israel and how it appeared from the United States. My musical guest is Lost at Last, which was incubated at Burning Man in the 1990s. I love them…here’s where to get more of their music. By the way — a correction — the lead vocalist is Jaya, not Om.
