Single Signs Now Available for Pre-sale: Envisioning Your Future: INTELLIGENCE 2019-2020

Dear Friend and Reader:

It’s difficult to see the future these days. I don’t mean to predict; I mean to see out to the horizon, and imagine something new.

There’s a lot in the way: the challenges we face every day, the sense of uncertainty that we live with, and the chaos churned up by the digital environment; let’s pause there for a second. This has thrown into chaos the “sense of self” that many people once possessed.

Add to that economic uncertainty and the sensation that the whole world is on the edge — it’s difficult to see the future these days. It seems risky to trust that things will be OK. It can feel impossible to imagine anything different from what we have now, much less something better.

Here is where astrology comes in. There is a future, and you are included. I use my gift as an astrologer to open up your perception of time, and give you access to time as a resource. This can be done with the power of human thought, if only we can get out of our own way.

INTELLIGENCE is your 2019-2020 reading, and it’s all about lighting up your mind, letting go of the past, and envisioning your future. Then, you will see some possible destinations begin to arise.

We are now in one of those “whole new reality” series of transits: Chiron in Aries. Uranus in Taurus. Many other long-range events that will shape our lives — and that we can use as points of orientation.

There are two major factors on what I call the “event horizon” — Saturn conjunct Pluto on Jan. 12, 2020, and Jupiter conjunct Saturn on Dec. 21, 2020.

On their own, each these would be a significant development; but soon we will get them in the same year.

It is for this reason that I’m covering 2019 and 2020 in one project — next year in audio (for fast delivery) and then 2020 in writing (equally detailed, though writing takes longer).

This is carefully done, thoughtful, accessible astrology like nobody else can do it. Though I am reluctant to use the word, I am a master of the solar house system, allowing me to put more detail into your reading than most other astrologers can do with your natal chart. (The solar chart is the archetypal chart for your birth sign).

Welcome to Intelligence, Your 2019-2020 Reading

Dear Readers, Now and in the Future:

We live in a most unusual moment, a perilous moment, and a beautiful one too. Our time in history is described by the astrology that is influencing all of us individually, and is making fireworks in the primary chart of the United States.

Eric Francis.

On January 12, 2020, at 11:59 pm EST, the world will experience the conjunction of Saturn and Pluto, in the sign Capricorn. This is a one-time event, for this cycle. (The next time the two form an exact conjunction is June 15, 2053, in Pisces).

For this reason, INTELLIGENCE, the 2019 annual edition of Planet Waves, will cover two years. The conjunction of Saturn and Pluto requires preparation. This aspect has a long story-arc. It brings to a close a cycle begun in November 1982, and opens a new cycle, in our personal history and in American history.

Saturn-Pluto is also square Eris, a planet discovered in 2005 and named in 2006 — and barely understood by astrologers. This is a new, edgy, strange factor to add to the astrology, representing the return of the castaway woman.

The world is in trouble and many people are in crisis. Planetary systems are frail and resources are running out. The “old order” is guarding its position and hoarding wealth.

It seems as if every need for healing is coming up at once. We would have it a lot easier, if we would use our intelligence: not just our brains, but our full bio-psychic systems, or capacity to love and our capacity to heal.

We have it in us.

So far as astrology can provide a tool, a key, a window or a mirror, I will do my best to bring that to you. These readings will be presented in written, audio and video formats, with original music by Vision Quest.

Please stay tuned for INTELLIGENCE part one, the 2019-2020 annual edition of Planet Waves.

With love,

Update on the Fall Reading

Dear Friend and Client:

This year’s fall reading focuses on Venus retrograde in Scorpio and Libra. I pick up the story from the end of Mars retrograde, connect the two events with the Venus-Mars square of Oct. 10.

In this chart, for Venus square Mars, there are many planets in Scorpio — Mercury, Venus, the Moon, the Vertex and Jupiter.

This is an astrology study in gender identity, and also in the relationships between women and men, in our fraught moment of history. Yet in the square relationship between Venus in Scorpio and Mars in Aquarius, there is an description of the introspective nature of this whole process.

Though it is being dramatized in the news and on the internet, the matter of how you feel inwardly is, by definition, deeply personal. Borrowing a turn of phrase from Sir Elton, we can’t fight one another out in the streets to find out who’s right and who’s wrong.

The structure of the central chart for this reading (Venus square Mars on Oct. 10) describes how our inner state manifests outwardly. The chart seems to ask: what is your concept of what it means to be a woman, and what do you think a woman really is? For men, this relates to their inner feminine side.

What’s so interesting is that the combined retrogrades of Venus and Mars so perfectly describe our current social milieu. This reading will focus your mind and give you room to explore these questions on your own terms.

I am planning to start delivering signs early next week. You can still pre-order now for the early-bird price of $88 for all 12 signs. The reading will top off at $111 for all 12 signs; individual signs will go on sale Sunday night.

Thank you for being a Planet Waves customer, and for trusting me as your astrologer.

With love,
