In the past 32 days, we’ve had a Super Moon/Full Moon (in Scorpio no less), an Annular Solar Eclipse, a Partial Lunar Eclipse, and the last Venus Transit across the face of the Sun until 2117. Now what?
If you’re anything like me? A nap! And I do mean literally. I was up and working this morning, then put myself down because I really needed it. Had I known what the past 5 weeks would be like, I probably wouldn’t have schedule my first radio interview in years to be on Thursday, June 7th.
Alas, I will be ready. I am ready. In fact, after my pre-interview with Sara Blumenfeld, I am excited. Sara is the voice behind Awakening in Austin, a twice-weekly Internet radio show. Follower her page on Facebook, Check out her website, and listen to her show to find out more about her and those she interviews.
And if you haven’t done so yet, start tomorrow, Thursday, June 7th at 10:00 am CDT. That’s when she’ll be interviewing me! 🙂 Don’t worry if you have to work. The interview will be recorded and available shortly after the show. I’ll post instructions Thursday afternoon.
Now if all that isn’t enough to get your post-eclipse season started, here’s something to look forward to. On August 15, 2012, Saturn and Mars conjunct visibly in the early evening sky. Here in Austin, the sun will set at about 8:13 pm that night. Three hours later, Mars and Saturn will set together. That means, you’ll have a good two hours after dusk to catch Saturn and Mars nestled together in the Western sky.
Mars is easy to see, even today, due to its distinctive red color. Saturn, while easy to see, is hard to distinguish from the brighter stars in the area. But in mid-August, his proximity to Mars will make him easy to find.
As the date gets closer, I’ll tell you a little of what the energy should be like with these two archetypal gods joining forces. But before then, we’ll have to endure the first exact square between Uranus and Pluto, due in about 2 ½ weeks from now.
Starting in, let’s say 1961, Uranus and Pluto began about a decade of conjunction (within orb). This is what would be referred to as a generational marker. The majority of my peers were born in that time frame.
We are now deep within another generational marker, namely with these same two distant neighbors 90 degrees apart. Both of these planets are known for leaving things a bit different than when they arrived (huge understatement), so we’ll just have to wait and see what they do to us this time around as they are competing rather than working together as they did in the 60s. And we all know how the 60s mixed things up a bit…
I hope you got to enjoy some of the recent sights, even if just via the many pictures floating around Facebook. Enjoy the interview if you listen in.
Oh, and one last thing. Someone left a comment on my Readings page inquiring about a session. From the comment, I cannot see who it was. If it was you, please send me an email, give me a call, or leave another comment there with your contact information and we’ll set up your appointment. My email and phone numbers can now be found on that page. Thanks!
