This is a short audio presentation that explains how I did the readings, as well as the house systems that I used to do them.

Personally I am looking forward to the relative optimism of a year that does not end with a long-predicted ‘end of the world’ type scenario, anticipation of mass cataclysm, mass enlightenment or some other looming specter. Speaking as a Pisces Sun with Cancer rising, I’m also looking forward to a year where the emphasis is on the water signs, more than any other time in the past decade or more.
This year’s annual edition, our 14th by the way, took seven months of research, recording, writing, design and development. There are audio and written readings for all 12 Sun signs and rising signs — and lots of other articles and resources. This year’s annual also includes music by composer Renee Blue O’Connell, who provided a theme for each of the zodiac signs from her repertoire. Website graphic art are energetic representations of the 12 signs and the LISTEN concept, by Debra Cortese.
Artwork for the 12 signs was created by Sally Smith, who you may know as Green Stargazer from the Planet Waves blog. Contributing artists are all accessible via our artist page, linked on the right side of the LISTEN page frame.
In many ways LISTEN is an astrological dreamscape — there is an astounding amount of personally relevant astrology in this edition, starting with readings that I’m able to do — I don’t really know how — that are structured by sign and yet work out to be personal, relevant and immediate. The readings are presented in two formats, written and audio; the audio portion is in two segments per sign.
Here is an audio introduction to LISTEN.
Dear Friend and Reader:
Is anyone listening?
That does seem to be the question these days. Do you feel like anyone can even hear you? With 600 cable channels, many of us getting 100 emails a day, plus text messages, cell calls, and Facebook and Twitter breezing by, how exactly is it possible for anyone to focus their attention?
How do you know someone understands what you mean?
Considered another way, can you hear the messages that you’re sending yourself? Are you and the people closest to you willing to hear one another, and use what you learn?
In this year’s annual edition of Planet Waves — called Listen — we will take up these questions.
Listening is a form of receiving. It’s essential to living safely, and living in tune with your environment. Yet listening is as much about giving as it is receiving: the listener gives his or her attention. It’s a subtle act of devotion.
Once you are tuned in and hearing the messages that are coming to you, you will be able to guide your life toward more creative adventures and satisfying intimacy.
I’m Listening to Your Astrology
I’ve been listening carefully to your astrology, and I’m faithfully transcribing the messages that I’m receiving for each of the signs and rising signs. I tune in to the major planets, the centaurs and the Pluto-like planets, though mainly I’m listening to the intelligence that orchestrates their movements.
In the last month of 2012, we cross over the end of the 13th baktun of the Mayan calendar, and enter a new era of human history. What will we do with this opportunity? We need guidance as we go through this transition, most of which will come from having open ears and a focused mind.
