Scorpio Full Moon, Games People Play, Millennial Generation Astrology — and the First Live Call-In on Sunday, May 18

Please visit our fantastic new website by clicking this link!

Listen to program.

First as promised, here is your signup for Sunday night’s open community discussion on Mars stationing direct.

Eric Berne, from the book jacket of Games People Play, first edition.

This is a free event, though you will need to preregister. It begins at 8 pm EDT on Sunday, May 18 and is scheduled to last for 90 minutes. You can listen or participate by phone, Skype or live stream on the Internet.

Tonight’s edition of Planet Waves FM covers three topics — the first is the Scorpio Full Moon, and Venus passing through the grand cross.

In the second section I look at the work and the astrology of Dr. Eric Berne, innovator of transactional analysis. This is the 50th anniversary of the book Games People Play, and Dr. Berne’s 114th birth anniversary was this past weekend on May 10.

In the third section I look at the astrology of the millennial generation, in particular people born between 1983 and 1999. This is a followup to last week’s program, The Walk of Shame.

Our musical guest is the Nathaniel Jonstone Band.

I think that about covers it, except for this fantastic interview with Jaclyn Friedman that I would call to your attention.

    I look forward to your expansion on the topic of millenials–my kiddos seem to have quite good boundaries and don’t try to take advantage or let themselves be taken advantage of either. But then they spent their childhoods watching me fix myself. But then they are possibly in an older cohort.

    I may have had a Baby on Board sign on my car, I don’t remember. I do remember wearing a t-shirt with the words Baby on Board that rested right on my pregnant belly. I have a picture of myself wearing it, while drinking a beer. I did try mitigate my drinking during my first two pregnancies because we young moms were beginning to get the message in the early 80s that drinking while pregnant was maybe not such a good idea. A stretch because I was not aware of my alcoholism at the time.

    The photo was from my second pregnancy and while my boy from that pregnancy has had to deal with a tendency to overindulge, it’s also a family pattern that runs back to at least his grandfather. His younger brother is possibly in the middle cohort and has actively avoided making the choices of his older brother and sister that involve starting a family, going to school, entering the military, etc., and lives a more free spirited lifestyle with going to Burning Man every year and whatnot. He struggled a lot with making those choices apparently thinking that he was somehow obligated to follow in their footsteps. He and and his older brother and sister are much more comfortable with each other since he has stopped projecting disapproval upon them. There may have been some early on–I remember being quite judgmental of my sibs at their age, but his older sibs had long dropped that sort of thing well before he was able to take it in. It’s nice that they are through that stage and enjoy each other more now.

    Very nice discussion of the Millennial generation. One thing I should mention is that the timing of generational changes over the past century have coincided with Uranus’ entry into a mutable signs. So for instance, the Baby Boom Generation begins in 1943 as Uranus enters Gemini. Generation X begins in 1961 as Uranus enters Virgo. Millennials start in 1982 as Uranus enters Sagittarius. Plurals start in 2003 as Uranus enters Pisces.

    Pluto and Neptune transits track closely with the major sociological trends at work during the birth years of generations, and those are very important to pay attention to. But Uranus may be a cleaner, neater way to characterize and subdivide the generations themselves. In effect, we could divide each generation into early-born, middle-born, and late-born cohorts based on whether Uranus is in a mutable, cardinal, or fixed sign. Nonetheless, I think it’s pretty clear that all of the cohorts still carry the imprint of the mutable sign associated with the larger generation.
