Dear Friend and Reader:
Tonight’s Planet Waves FM considers the deeper themes associated with all this outing of sexual abuse. It’s finally coming out: that’s something to celebrate. Yet we also need to take this opening, understand what we’ve learned, and take responsibility for making the changes that need to be made.
Sex scandals don’t usually result in progress, only in pain. Yet what we are witnessing is a sex scandal that involves all of society. We can all take this moment to assess our lives and make changes, whether it’s adjusting how we treat others, or setting limits on how others treat us.
Tonight’s musical guest is Suzanne Vega.

Growth Is Inevitable. Becoming Is an Art Form.
Dear Friend of Planet Waves:
Here’s the thing: Life goes on. No matter how crazy the world is, we who are alive must keep on living. And that means we must keep growing and becoming.
The more chaotic the world becomes, the more we need a tool that can help us spot the patterns in the chaos — and that would be astrology. I have long considered astrology just one resource among many potentially useful ones, though with each passing day, the gift of pattern recognition, and how these patterns relate to our lives, is a service that astrology is uniquely suited to provide.
I have begun preparing THE ART OF BECOMING, the 20th annual edition of Planet Waves. This letter will tell you more about the project, which, if all goes reasonably well, will be delivered during the month of January.
Brief note on pricing policy: we offer the best price for those who purchase sooner. The current price point is $99; this will be increased again soon to the final pre-order price of $111.
My annual readings provide not only insight but spiritual and psychological leverage. I am not here to predict the future, but rather to help you design your future.
The project began as an extended January monthly horoscope; it’s now more like an astrological novel, written with the pacing and detail of well-crafted fiction writing. My focus is on love and work: your relationship to yourself, followed by your relationship to others; your professional activities, financial matters and tapping your creativity.
In the end, I consider myself a motivational presenter. I see my job as helping you get excited about your own potential, and describing the specific ways you can manifest your desires into reality.
In the next section, I will describe some of the transits I’ll be writing about in THE ART OF BECOMING. I present these events in human language, using technical terms only as necessary — and explaining everything as I go. As a journalist, I write to be understood.
This is astrology written for humans, in human language, using concrete examples and images.
