Dear Friend and Reader:
Here’s tonight’s edition of Planet Waves AM/FM, first broadcast live on Radio Kingston on Sunday night.
In addition to a discussion of Chiron in Aries through the frame of A Course in Miracles, this edition has two topics of interest: one is a discussion of how I write horoscope columns, debunking the concept that there is some kind of magic involved, and also describing the basic astrology techniques that I use and how I create the “effect” of the horoscope.
Second, in the last 45 minutes of the program, I offer a presentation on negotiating sexual boundaries. This topic is set in the context of a culture obsessed with victim-perpetrator thinking, which makes having a conversation on level ground nearly impossible; a culture where we lack proper sex education, and can hardly say the words we need to use to do this effectively; and where most sex happens drunk.
As ever, Planet Waves AM/FM is sponsored by the contributions of our listeners. Please consider making a one-time or monthly donation. These are fully tax-deductible if you’re inside the U.S. Thank you for your support.
Taurus Birthdays 2018:
Here Comes the Sun, Taurus!
“The Taurus horoscope is so perfect, it’s poetic — but that doesn’t say much — so many of yours are, Eric.”
— Dorothy Rodriguez
Dear Friend and Reader with Taurus Sun, Rising or Moon:
This Thursday, April 19, the Sun enters your sign. No matter how confusing, frustrating or surprising some of the recent astrology and events in your life have been, having the Sun in Taurus should help you to take things at your own pace and feel more like yourself — even if you’ve been growing and changing in unexpected ways.
Of particular note is that when the Sun arrives in your sign, it will be in a beneficial aspect to Chiron, which just arrived in Aries earlier this week.
We have yet to get a sense of what Chiron in Aries is like, but this aspect looks like it’s offering you a point of inner orientation to help you get your solar year started right.
Your upcoming 2018 Taurus Birthday Reading will flesh out the details. In the two astrology segments (at least 30 minutes each), Eric will also give you the lowdown on how to cultivate the flexibility, and openness to adventure, that Uranus — which enters your sign in just four weeks — will call for.
In addition to the astrology segments, you’ll receive access to an extended description of your sign and last year’s Taurus Birthday Reading (which you can listen to here, as an early gift) — all of it in pro-quality audio you can download and listen to on any device, at any time, as often as you wish.
“I am listening to it again now, and there are so many more gems coming to me. Profound, deep and so thought provoking…inspired!”
— Rhonda Benson
Even better, you’ll get the best of Eric’s decades of astrology experience, therapy training, and investigative curiosity — all in accessible language. In other words, this is more than an hour of some of the most motivating, inspiring, practical, reassuring and perspective-broadening astrology coaching you can find on the internet — personal resonance at a fraction of the cost of a personal consultation.
I hope you won’t take your sweet, Taurean time in pre-ordering (I can say that because I’m a Taurus, too!). When you pre-order before the 2018 Taurus Reading is published, you secure the best value: an expert reading at its lowest price. The price increases the closer Eric gets to publishing the reading.
May the Sun shine on you and within you.
Yours & truly,
P.S. Even though all the books say Taurus likes material things, any Taurus you care about would love to receive their 2018 Birthday Reading as a gift. Remember, you can always set up your order by phone: (877) 453-8265, or (206) 567-4455 if you’re calling from outside the US.

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 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.
