April 5, 2020 | In the Wake of Adversity

Here is your new program. I make a reference to articles, all of which can be found on the homepage of PlanetWaves.net. This program takes some interesting turns to places I was not expecting to go. I have some additional thoughts pertaining to Venus in Gemini and Venus conjunct Vesta…Tantra Studio is now in. For further inquiry, here is a Book of Blue sampler, with a new audio series of teachings by Aditi Amrita, Lucy and others. I plan to return later Monday with a second edition of Tantra Studio based on Venus and Vesta in Gemini. That will be added as a separate recording.

Note, after posting my discussion of whether we’re treating or diagnosing the wrong disease, a friend sent me this video by a critical care doctor in New York City. “We are operating under a medical paradigm that is untrue. In short, we are treating the wrong disease.”

March 29, 2020 | The Road to Nowhere

Here is your new program — first with a check-in about your situation in the midst of this nutty world we’re suddenly living in; followed by a review, and preview, of the current astrology — from the Aries New Moon last Tuesday to the Jupiter-Pluto conjunction to the Jupiter Saturn conjunction. In the third segment, I discuss my thesis in the new article I published with the monthly horoscope — about the environment known as the environment, and how Coronabro is just a small facet of that. Finally in Tantra Studio, I riff on the psychic versus the physical attributes of sexuality and where the two meet.

March 22, 2020 | Where We Are, How We Got Here, and Where We Might Go

The new Planet Waves FM begins with a discussion of basic facts surrounding the coronavirus pandemic and resulting effects, including how we got here, the preparedness crisis, what we don’t know, and how we are navigating a near-worst-case scenario. What lessons do we have to learn, and are we learning them? And will we remember?

The second segment focuses the astrology, including the Aries New Moon, Saturn in Aquarius, and a continued discussion of this shock early in the Age of Aquarius. The third looks at some of the scientific facts behind how this virus may have spread, referencing the interview with Dr. Ward Stone and other sources. I end the segment with a discussion of the bat as an animal totem, with the help of Ted Andrews.

I’ve added Tantra Studio, which begins at the two hour mark. For those curious, here is a Book of Blue compilation.

Dr. Ward B. Stone with Planet Waves reporter Genevieve Salerno, in his laboratory in Delmar, NY, 2008.

Dr. Ward B. Stone interviewed by Eric Francis for Planet Waves FM / Pacifica Radio Network, March 18, 2020

This is an interview with Dr. Ward B. Stone, who for more than 40 years served as New York State’s wildlife pathologist. Dr. Stone ran one of the world’s only wildlife pathology units, and is an internationally-renowned expert on virus transmission from animals to humans, including West Nile virus, rabies, and other pathogens. He’s also the discoverer of PCB contamination in the United States, which is how I know him. He’s one of my most trusted sources and a hero of the global environmental movement. I reached him at home the evening of March 18, 2020.

He believes that our current outbreak of novel coronavirus in fact came from transmission from bats to humans, and says that in his opinion there is a less than 1% chance that the virus came out of a lab, and said that transmission from an animal to a human the most likely path that this virus took. The interview is presented unedited, and is about 45 minutes long.
