Venus Retrograde, Sun in Leo and Astrology for Artists

Use this link if you're using an Apple mobile device | Download MP3. Or you can click through for additional resources.

In tonight's edition, I look at the combination of the Sun and Mercury ingressing Leo, just as Venus stations retrograde. I also read the chart of Marshall McLuhan on his 104th birth anniversary, and look at how his media theories express themselves in his chart. And I look at the chart of Donald Trump, for some perverse thrills. Finally I end with an overview of my "astrology for artists" theory. Music today is from David Byrne's The Knee Plays, a work of art by one of the great artists of our time.
