New Moon Opposite Saturn; Sun Entering Leo

What if the Moon Landing Happened?

Scene from the purported Moon landing, 51 years ago today.

I was actually banned from Facebook for 24 hours for posting this article about sex education in the United States. Purity!

July 19, 2020 | How To Think For Yourself

Mobile device | Download | Thank you for sponsoring Planet Waves FM

Resources listed below!

Tonight’s program is called “How to Think For Yourself.” I begin with a discussion of thinking for yourself in the face of fear and deception. In the second segment (beginning at 1:05), I cover the Cancer New Moon. I do not cover the Leo ingress; that will have to wait for Monday’s edition. Then is the Andrew McLuhan interview (beginning at 1:48) and Vesta Studio on involuntary celibacy (beginning at 2:48).

Planet Waves
At my desk in the Planet Waves office earlier Friday. Photos are (from left): gelatin print of Andy Warhol, Lou Reed and the Velvets by Billy Name; horoscope columnist Patric Walker; Ray Glass, co-founder of the Student Association of the State University of NY; the Hudson Valley Renegades; and canines Jonah and Henrietta.

My conversation is about the influence of digital technology on the Covid situation: this is digital from top to bottom, except when someone actually gets sick. The test is digital, the idea of the pandemic (as opposed to the actual epidemic) is digital, the “news” is spread digitally and so on.

Planet Waves FM is a project of Chiron Return, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Our projects include our internet radio program dating back to Radio Woodstock in the late 1990s, as well as Covid19 News, The Gemstone File document repository, and now in actual development, Investigative Reporting from the Kitchen Table.

We are sponsored exclusively by your contributions, whether large or small. If you feel moved to sponsor this program, you may do so here. All donations from the US are tax-deductible.

Thank you to the many listeners whose generosity makes our work possible.

Correction, the article I was referencing was not Dioxin Critic Sued (which is on a similar topic), but rather See No Evil by Vicki Monks. They are both about fraudulent reporting on dioxin in the mainstream press.

As for your resources: The “forgotten” one is Kary Mullis describing his invention of the polymerase chain reaction. SEE VIDEO BELOW THE MUSIC TRACK!! Here is the article on cell line contamination, about Dr. Christopher Korch, the article about Gardasil injury, Joshua Halinen’s article Living in Hell about sexual repression in his childhood evangelical church and finally, Mercury, Weaving the Story of Nessus (my best article about Nessus). I forgot one!!!! Let me know and I’ll post it.

“Thank you for your LITERALLY life-changing work. I cannot put into words how much I appreciate what you do. I went from a homeless veteran (with 2 children) to a first-time homeowner over the last 3-1/2 years. Eric’s words guided me to a place my family now calls home. I have followed him for years (since his NY Daily News days) and I am stunned by his accuracy. The Art of Becoming [reading] was so on topic that I used it as a guide for the whole year. In fact, I most likely would NOT have had the courage to buy a home if it wasn’t specifically mentioned in that reading. I had slept on inflatable furniture, cots and couches for so many years that I was mostly focused on having my own room. Just the thought of buying a home seemed too overwhelming for me. However, thanks to Eric and the rest of the team, I now have my own space.”

In 2020 we have not one but two conjunctions that mark the turn of a generation, and of an era in history. On Jan. 12, Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn form their once per 36-year conjunction. Then on Dec. 21. 2020, Jupiter and Saturn, both now in Aquarius, form a conjunction in the first degree of that sign. READ MORE.
