In tonight’s edition of Planet Waves FM I cover the approaching Pisces Full Moon conjunct the relatively new planet Salacia. Named of for the consort of Neptune and a goddess of the Sea, I think it’s pretty special that we’re having a Full Moon in Pisces conjunct this point — though it’s difficult to predict what it might mean. That’s why I call these ‘proving moments’, wherein a planet’s properties emerge.

In the second half of the program I cover the Building 197 incident — Monday’s shooting at the Navy Yard in Washington, DC (see chart). First a clarification: the suspect, Aaron Alexis, didn’t have top secret clearance — he merely had security clearance. But the irony is still there — he had security clearance despite a history of arrests, firearms incidents and a ridiculously spotty career in the Navy. What is the meaning of security?

You can see his chart here. I also look briefly at the chart of the NRA.

Here is my initial writeup on the Building 197 incident. Here is a commentary on the emotional onslaught of the news that I wrote Monday night, called Missing the Obvous.

Our musical guest tonight is Vajra, who performed this week at Backstage Studio in uptown Kingston, NY.
