Dear Friend and Listener:

In tonight’s edition of Planet Waves FM, I take a look at Mars square Chiron (exact tomorrow) and the Pisces New Moon conjunct Chiron, which happens on Saturday.

Then I cover two issues, the first being a landmark gay and lesbian rights case that was recently decided by a high-level federal court in New York City. My friend Stephen Bergstein was one of the attorneys who worked on the case, and he is my guest tonight. The issue was recently covered in The New York Times.

Next, Sunday was the seventh anniversary of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster. I look at the chart for the incident, and consider the issue of charting nuclear-related matters, which is a whole branch of astrology. If you want some background, here’s an article that came out shortly after the incident, called Notes from Downwind. In an article that appeared one week before the incident, I seem to describe it in detail.

In the last segment, I consider what society’s obsession with LGBT people does in the minds of those who are "heteronormative." There are some questions that are not being asked, and some observations to draw.

Planet Waves FM is part of Chiron Return, the nonprofit arm of Planet Waves. We now do the program live on Radio Kingston at 10 pm Eastern, 7 pm Pacific on Sunday nights. The show then posts each Tuesday on the Planet Waves FM website, where we host nearly seven years of previous programs.

We remain supported by your contributions. If you’ve come back to Planet Waves FM week after week for years, please consider becoming a member. That helps cover the considerable costs associated with doing such a high-quality program.

Thanks for your membership support, and I’ll catch you live next Sunday at 10 pm Eastern.

With love,

Four Winds Almanac Now Includes Daily Horoscope

Planet Waves publishes a nifty daily astrology newsletter called the Four Winds Report. Designed as a fast read arriving early in the morning, we’re now trying an experiment — we’re including the New York Daily News daily horoscope for everyone.

Were it not for horoscopes, I wouldn’t be an astrologer. It was the Patric Walker daily that convinced me there was actually something to astrology, and I got my basic education studying his column each day in the New York Post.

I pack a lot of energy into each sign’s 50-word write up. Part of the value of astrology is the timing, and daily allows for precision, as well as chronicling a narrative day by day.

Your almanac also includes information about Mayan astrology (long count and short count dates), several formats of the current date (including Hebrew and Islamic), a daily birthday reading, and special discounts on products and services.

Best of all, we take no outside advertising.

Included are finished pieces, rehearsals, live concerts, drum grooves, and spoken word recordings. I consider it a kind of musical divination. Click in randomly at different times of day and see what you discover.

Readers Say This Is Our Best Annual Reading Yet

“Incredible! As a Capricorn who has been demolished by Pluto and searching for myself for a long time, I cried so many times reading this. I feel like I have found a long-lost piece of myself through your writings, today especially through The Art of Becoming. I feel hopeful and even inspired. Bravo Eric, you are brilliant, wise, and encouraging as always. Many thanks to you and the entire Planet Waves team for bringing this to life!”
— Amy Welchez, on the Art of Becoming reading for Capricorn

Dear Friend and Reader:

The Art of Becoming is the 20th annual horoscope by Eric — a high-quality, deep, thorough yet accessible look into the astrology of 2018, and some way beyond. Every sign gets a chapter-length article dedicated to what the year holds in store for you. The readings also come with access to much of last year’s audio and video, as well as access to The Book of Your Life written reading.

All 12 of the Art of Becoming signs are available for instant access — whether you purchase one or two readings individually, or go all-in and order the whole reading to share with your household.

Thank you for these readings, filled with life-enhancing, creative ideas. Helps me to continue to ask the right questions. To be open, curious and engaged. A refreshing orientation. And as I purchase the full twelve signs, I learn lots of astrology too. Appreciate you being so transparent with your technique/method.”

P.S. Here’s what others are saying about The Art of Becoming:

“I love your readings! I just finished listening to the first reading. You include the history of what is leading up to the now, and its influence operating in the now, and how my actions now can affect my future! Your readings have a depth and character to them that creates a deeper context and meaning that actually helps this old lady see that I am indeed self-manifesting and self-actualizing and moving forward, feeding my inner kid! I am doing something bigger and better and bolder than in the past and harnessing energy to create a more real me. Thank you!”
— Bobbie Kithcart, on the Art of Becoming reading for Leo

“Eric, as a Pisces I really appreciate all your readings, as they have truly helped me push past the insecurities and become a truly wonderful person with greater strength to become ME. Thanks so much!”
— Susan Andrews, on the Art of Becoming annual reading for Pisces

Each year I purchase the annual readings and each time I find myself understanding the depth of it precisely when I need it (or right in the midst of the unfolding) so that I can navigate the energies and alignments in a way that feels right, makes sense and moves me forward. My journey with Chiron has led me to combine my affinity for teaching with healing and connection to Spirit that runs in my family but was never actualized…until I decided to work with it. Your readings have largely contributed to helping me ground this gift. Thank you for the work you do; it is so needed in this world!”
— Winter Clark, on the Art of Becoming annual reading for Gemini
