Dear Friend and Reader:

Tonight’s Planet Waves FM takes a placid look at our edgy moment. To everyone’s great relief, I omit the news entirely, and focus on the astrology: Monday’s Aquarius New Moon, the Imbolc cross-quarter (and beginning of the Year of the Pig), and the unusual conditions of Venus and Mars.

To wit, Venus is conjunct Ixion and Pholus, and is square Chiron and Salacia, while Mars is now square Pluto and conjunct Eris. That is a lot of contact between the inner planets and the outer, which describes some unusual opportunities in our current moment.

The End of the Shutdown, and of Roger Stone

jan27-40-2019
Selection from the Special Counsel’s grand jury indictment of Roger Stone for witness intimidation and several other counts. In this passage, he is threatening to kill radio host Randy Credico — and to take his dog. I believe that this statement led to the use of a paramilitary squad to arrest him, unlike any of the other raids or arrests so far resulting from investigations by the Special Counsel.

Dear Friend and Reader:

In tonight’s Planet Waves FM, I look at the chart for the arrest of Roger Stone, one of the most notorious dirty tricksters in the history of American politics. The Special Counsel has charged that he was responsible for orchestrating the connection between WikiLeaks and the Trump campaign in 2016. This was the source of the stolen Podesta emails that damaged the campaign of Hillary Clinton.

Dear Friend and Listener:

Overnight tonight is a total eclipse of the Moon in Leo, at 12:16 am EST. In tonight’s edition of Planet Waves FM, I describe some of the features of that eclipse. I also look at the chart of Martin Luther King, Jr. [view chart here]. Finally, in the third segment, Tantra Studio is an analysis of this satirical article in The Onion. When we consider why something is funny (or is supposed to be), we get a look at the underlying message of the joke.
