Nelson Mandela and the flag of the African National Congress.

Tonight’s edition is a tribute to the music of the anti-Apartheid movement, to Nelson Mandela and the extraordinary astrology of the newly discovered centaur planet Orius. My ideas for what music to play came from both my readers and also the LA Times pop music critic Randall Roberts (visit his compilation here).

I discuss Mandela’s chart as well — you can find one version of the chart here.

Later in the program, I discuss the collection of plants gathered in Sagittarius, which you can see here as a graphic or here as a list from

Because this edition addresses delineating the minor planet Orius and also many other points in Sagittarius, here is a link to an article about how that is done, which I wrote for The Mountain Astrologer in 2012.

    Interesting John Pilger article, bodymindalchemy, thanks for this. Haven’t read him for a while – always good to read his take on things.

  2. bodymindalchemy says:

    Mandela, too, fostered crony relationships with wealthy whites from the corporate world, including those who had profited from apartheid. He saw this as part of ‘reconciliation’.

    Thank you for the fanastic Randall Roberts link, Eric! What a treat – can’t wait to listen to all the tracks, and really look forward to your podcast.

    Eric, really strong podcast. The section on the centaurs and way out objects is useful, especially since 1992 QB1 opened the door. It makes sense that Mandela and the Centaurs are together in Sagg now. No way was that 120 mins…
