Even by contemporary standards, 2018 is a distinctive year astrologically. Many slow-moving planets change signs. In the reshaped world that follows, the 2018 Planet Waves Annual by Eric, The Art of Becoming, will help you design your own future. Pre-order all 12 signs here for just $99, or choose your individual signs here.


Attention Capricorn: your ruling planet Saturn has returned home to your sign. Find out how you can make friends with Father Time, and take the reins of your life, when you order your 2018 Capricorn Birthday Reading by Eric.


Most planets have left Sagittarius, though the centaur is the mascot of Planet Waves FM, which is published by a nonprofit corporation called Chiron Return.

Dear Friend and Reader:

Planet Waves FM is back, after a three-week break. That was an excellent idea.

Tonight’s program [play episode here] catches us up on the new Capricorn astrology environment, Michael Wolff’s book, my latest McLuhan studies and finally, in the tantra section, a discussion of embarrassment as the key to enlightenment.

Eric in a recent episode of Planet Waves TV.

A few weeks ago, I mentioned how we set a goal of having listener contributions pay for Planet Waves FM. Total cost to do the show is about $2,000 a month, which supports the studio, personnel to produce the program, web hosting and membership dues to the Pacifica Network.

Costs for the past 350 or so programs have been paid for by Planet Waves and me personally. With our wide listenership, we’re ready to have the modest costs for the program diffused amidst our listeners.

Think of this: our whole year of programming costs less than one 30-second advertisement on The Daily Show.

But there’s more! Planet Waves FM is published by a newly-minted nonprofit called Chiron Return. We have two other projects. One is The Gemstone File, an online collection of documents from the files of major chemical corporations, the military and the EPA. The other is a class called Investigative Reporting from the Kitchen Table, which will teach the basic rudiments of journalism to anyone who wants to learn.

We also offer a community recording facility and gathering space in Kingston, New York, where I’ll soon be offering astrology workshops.

Would you consider making a small monthly contribution? Now that we’re a 501(c)(3) corporation, your financial support is tax-deductible. Every little bit goes a long way toward balancing our budget. Thank you for your offering. We truly appreciate your generosity.

If you’re in a position to make a larger contribution toward our efforts, please contact us directly.

This is the month when Chiron Return takes over paying studio rent and utilities from Planet Waves! That’s a real step forward.

It’s great to be back with you.

With love,
eric

The Art of Becoming is Becoming

Dear Friend and Reader:

This is an update on The Art of Becoming, my 2018 annual edition for Planet Waves. Last week, I produced an introductory video [play here], in which I review the build-up to this year’s distinctive astrology.

We promised the annual edition for “sometime in January” and with one exception (involving audio) I’ve always come through with that. What makes this year interesting is that, for the first time, I’m also writing a daily horoscope, in the New York Daily News.

The first items to be delivered will be the videos on Saturn, Chiron and Uranus (more information here), which will be included if you pre-order all 12 signs. These videos will contain details on how to work with your life cycles and really see what these transits mean.

I’ve now uploaded the first video, covering Saturn in Capricorn, though as of this moment, most of this work is ahead of me. So, please send some good vibes.

Next will come my written presentations (possibly with extra audio sessions), mapping out in detail how the astrology of 2018 will look for each of the signs. This is my 20th annual edition, and your readings will get the full benefit of all my experience. If you want to get a feeling for how that looks, you may access the full 2017 annual here with our compliments.

If you’d like to dig a little deeper, you’re invited to check out our previous annual editions going back to 1999 (here’s a letter explaining more about their history).

You may pre-order all 12 signs for just $99 here. We recommend this as best value; note that you can share the readings with your household. Alternatively, you may choose your individual signs here.

Thank you for your interest in Planet Waves. As ever, it’s good to be with you.

With love,

Planet Waves

Capricorn Audio Birthday Reading is Ready!

Dear Friend and Reader:

Last week, I recorded your Capricorn birthday reading. It’s about 70 minutes in length, in two sessions. This is your birthday audio — an entirely different reading from The Art of Becoming, which will be ready in January.

You are living in extraordinary times, as a Capricorn or Cap rising. There’s been nothing quite like this in your sign since the early 1990s, when the Uranus-Neptune connection passed through town. That was a while ago — and what you’re now working with is just as significant.

Planet Waves

At the moment, the Sun, Venus, Saturn and Pluto are in your sign, which is building to a series of major events that peak in 2020. That may seem like a long way off, though time marches on. The presence of Saturn, the ruling planet of Capricorn, is a reminder to tend to your growth, shore up your foundations, and take your place in the world.

Saturn in your sign is helping ground you in your real priorities.

In this reading, I focus on several key points of development, though none is as important as your relationship to your family, and your family history. For all you want to do in life, all the ways you want to succeed, and solidify your process of self-actualization: the family connection is essential.

This relates directly to your most intimate partnerships, because they’re based on an emotional foundation that was laid in childhood. I provide specific information about how to work with these elements, and how to engage in productive self-therapy (it’s not always so useful, but it can be).

Your reading includes access to last year’s recording, plus your 2017 written reading (from The Book of Your Life), and a tarot reading that will arrive in about a month (maybe more, maybe less).

You can get instant access when you order the reading here for just $44. We will increase the price further when the Tarot section is published.

This reading is also included with the Backstage Pass. If you’re not a BSP member, you can upgrade and extend your current subscription, and the Capricorn reading will be included.

Thank you for being a Planet Waves customer.

With love,
eric
