Dear Friend and Listener:

On this week’s Planet Waves FM, I take a new look at the charts of young people primarily born after 1999, and describe in some detail the factors that I think are operative: Chiron in Sagittarius, Chiron conjunct Pluto in Sagittarius, and the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction in Taurus.

We have coverage from both the New York and Washington March for Our Lives protests, and fantastic music beginning with a masterpiece by the local Woodstock band Go Van Go, called, “How Come Everybody’s Got a Gun?”

I also consider this weekend’s unusual event of Venus passing through the Uranus-Eris conjunction. When an inner planet joins an outer-planet event, the effect can be highly unusual or unlikely events in society — and that is exactly what we are seeing happen right now. Something unprecedented is occurring: the survivors of a mass shooting are rising up against an absurd cultural norm. They are speaking in a clear voice, undaunted by the prospect of failure.

Most significantly, they are willing to be confrontational. We have not seen anything like this in a long, long time. We may indeed be witnessing something new.

For some years, I’ve been analyzing Uranus and Eris in Aries as the digital haze, the hyper-stimulated-and-then-cut-off condition of existing at the bottom of the digital ocean. Any technological effect, however, has the potential to flip into its opposite when pushed to a far enough extreme, and that is what I see young people, nearly all of them born 1999 or later, doing.

For whatever reasons, these young people are especially sensitive to the incoming influence of the Uranus-Eris conjunction that is happening now. For a historic precedent, consider the way in which those with Pluto in Leo were sensitive to the Uranus-Pluto conjunction of the mid-1960s.

With love,

Planet Waves

New Excerpts From The Art of Becoming — All Signs

“Wow — what a reading! I have been struggling for years trying to find that part of me, the one with drive, ambition, fearless aspirations, vision and a mission. Where has this person gone to? Why is everything I do being sabotaged or not manifesting? Now it all makes sense with Sagittarius! The disappearing, going missing, being waylaid. After this reading, I feel renewed, energized and hopeful. This came at a perfect time. Grazie mille Eric — you hit it on the head again!!”

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.
