In the spirit of the current Mercury, Mars, and Neptune conjunction in Aquarius, let’s take a break and watch some astrology videos. I’ve collected a few, and there are many more on YouTube and around the web. I’d love to see some of your suggestions, too. (There’s always something new. I just heard about BrightCove, it’s apparently like YouTube with a higher quality video. Has anyone used that?)
Not everyone is on Facebook, so some readers may have missed Bruce Scofield’s lucid explanation of astrology, including the recent zodiac confusion. “To explain this whole astrology thing a little further is Bruce Scofield, a professor of geoscience and evolution.”
