Benazir Bhutto and the Nuclear Axis

Dear Friend and Reader: YESTERDAY’S assassination of Benazir Bhutto, the beloved former prime minister of Pakistan and candidate in next month’s general election, was not merely the martyring of yet another pro-democracy leader. It was not just the murder of a dynamic, articulate and intelligent woman in a region of the world where women are … Read more

Aries Point Alert: The Sky is Heading for Capricorn

Dear Friend and Reader: A CLUSTER of events the next few days is sending up an Aries Point alert: that is, global events on the horizon. The Sun is about to enter Capricorn for the southern solstice on Dec. 22 (winter solstice, up in the northern hemisphere). Jupiter, the Sun and Mercury are either in Capricorn or … Read more

Jupiter, Pluto & Signs of the Times

Dear Friend and Reader: EVERY MORNING I faithfully go down to Peter B’s Deli and read the Sally Brompton horoscope in the New York Post. It’s better than nearly any astrology book you can buy. Sally B. runs seven days a week, 365 days a year (just like Peter B). I could get it online, but it’s not … Read more

Pluto, Jupiter, and the Galactic Core

By Tracy Delaney and Eric Francis WE ARE currently experiencing a triple conjunction of Jupiter, Pluto and the Galactic Core, which we have been covering in recent weeks. Exact on Dec. 11, this would seem like a highly improbable triple alignment, since Pluto reaches the Galactic Core about once every 248 years, and Jupiter reaches … Read more

Through the Spiral Door – and Into Capricorn

I GUESS we could sum up the big news of coming winter in a few words: Pluto is entering Capricorn. So recently designated a dwarf, Pluto will have this odd new reputation tested as it ingresses the sign associated with government, big corporate interests, big science and the structure of society itself. These changes will … Read more

This coverage is based on a relationship Planet Waves has with UAC, so we are in effect promoting the conference … Read more

Mars Rex in Cancer: Get Over Thyself

Dear Friend and Reader: MOST OF what astrologers do is help people get over their hang-ups and inhibitions. Astrologers work to peer into the psyche and better understand the inner workings of a person. We can allegedly glimpse the future or at least see how it’s developing. Some astrologers help their clients solve problems, but … Read more

They Know They’re Hot

Dear Friend and Reader: YOU HAVE heard me say a lot of times that TV sucks, and now its writers are on strike. Hearing that, I immediately forgot my silly old grudge and wrote to Jeff Apter, my union president in Paris, and asked him whether I had to walk off the job in support … Read more

Scorpio de los Muertos & Mercury Station Direct

Dear Friend and Reader: THESE NIGHTS of mid-Scorpio are when the veil between the worlds is the thinnest. They are the Days of the Dead: All Saints’ Day, All Souls’ Day, Dia de los Muertos, and Dia de los Angelitos; with special days designated to honor the unbaptized, small children, those who died violently, and of … Read more

Wake Up and Smell the Smoke

OUR STORY begins with something really weird: a thread connecting the first California fire this week, the Asian tsunami, whatever happened on Sept. 11, 2001 and the stolen presidential election on Nov. 7, 2000. Conspiracy theory? No, just astrology. Remember, astrology is based on astronomical facts: specific times and places that provide precise global and … Read more
