Sunday evening I hosted the first Planet Waves global conference call — a live edition of Planet Waves FM. It was amazing. For two hours I dialoged with my listeners and readers about a wide diversity of subjects. Thank you to everyone who participated. The program will be available for instant replay later Monday. To get access to the recording, sign up for the program, you’ll be added to the list for this edition and we will send you the URL.
Many people are asking about what to expect once Mars stations direct: whether legal matters will resolve, whether all that is stuck will come unstuck, whether they will feel better. I suggest that you participate in this astrology and do your part to make those things happen. Mars is about initiative; Mars in Libra is about taking initiative in relationships — all kinds of relationships. As Mars shifts directions later Monday (Tuesday in the UK, Europe and Australia), gradually ramp up your energy, act on your decisions and focus your will power. Meanwhile, the Sun is void of course all day today and until it enters Gemini Tuesday, May 20 at 10:59 pm EDT. A planet or luminary is void of course when it’s done making major aspects in its current sign, and will not make any new aspects till it’s in its new sign. Sun void, rarely ever mentioned in modern astrology and overlooked by nearly all classical astrologers, is in my experience a moment of unlikely events actually happening. It’s as if the Sun, uncluttered by aspects to other points, opens up to another dimension and allows in what could not pass through before. During these events it’s necessary to choose wisely, lest something undesired or inappropriate enter; and I do believe that it’s especially vital to choose consciously under a Sun void, particularly given other factors in the chart — including the fact that Mars is stationing direct in Libra, in effect drawing to a close a long period of deliberation. Pay attention, study your options and if you don’t like any of them, do what you can to make some new ones. Read Friday’s post.
To my Gemini readers, it’s going to be a very interesting year. You might be asking when things will finally settle down; you have been running the paces, and now Mercury is about to be retrograde in your sign. Watch my Facebook page later today or your email for the early offer (best price) on your 2014 reading, which will include a live question and reply session. I plan to have a free audio preview up Monday as well.
