Here is an audio introduction to LISTEN.
Dear Friend and Reader:
Is anyone listening?
That does seem to be the question these days. Do you feel like anyone can even hear you? With 600 cable channels, many of us getting 100 emails a day, plus text messages, cell calls, and Facebook and Twitter breezing by, how exactly is it possible for anyone to focus their attention?
How do you know someone understands what you mean?
Considered another way, can you hear the messages that you’re sending yourself? Are you and the people closest to you willing to hear one another, and use what you learn?
In this year’s annual edition of Planet Waves — called Listen — we will take up these questions.
Listening is a form of receiving. It’s essential to living safely, and living in tune with your environment. Yet listening is as much about giving as it is receiving: the listener gives his or her attention. It’s a subtle act of devotion.
Once you are tuned in and hearing the messages that are coming to you, you will be able to guide your life toward more creative adventures and satisfying intimacy.
I’m Listening to Your Astrology
I’ve been listening carefully to your astrology, and I’m faithfully transcribing the messages that I’m receiving for each of the signs and rising signs. I tune in to the major planets, the centaurs and the Pluto-like planets, though mainly I’m listening to the intelligence that orchestrates their movements.
In the last month of 2012, we cross over the end of the 13th baktun of the Mayan calendar, and enter a new era of human history. What will we do with this opportunity? We need guidance as we go through this transition, most of which will come from having open ears and a focused mind.
In this special edition of Planet Waves FM, I explore one of the most commonly asked questions about “general” readings — how does the astrologer make them specific? How can we get any detail at all, just knowing someone’s Sun sign? (By the way I just heard a ridiculous verbal typo – toward the beginning, I say the word ‘simultaneously’ when I mean ‘synonymously’. It’s an interesting blend of concepts anyway, as one implies time and the other implies meaning.) (more…)
