The Sun, Mercury, and Venus are in Libra, and the Moon in Gemini will be making a trine (from 27° Gemini) to retrograde Mercury at 10:58 a.m. PT on Monday morning. (This is about the time I post this blog.)
This week’s blog is a list of some astrology podcasts, a gentle, informative, and diverse interlude between eclipses.
Please enjoy listening. And, for you multi-taskers (of a certain demographic), remember that you can drive, take a walk, do the dishes and housework, (or lots of other things) at the same time.
Chris Brennan has been interviewing astrologers (and others in related fields) since June 2012. There are 21 episodes archived on The Astrology Podcast. Some recent additions include a recording of a live debate between Chris and Eric Meyers on Modern vs. Traditional Astrology; Chris’s solo show on the Rationale for the Significations of the Houses, and an interview with Christopher Warnock on Astrology, Magic, and the Occult.
Gary P. Caton has produced the Goddess Astrology Podcast since 2008; there are 127 episodes at the site. He speaks on the phases of the Venus cycle and the asteroids Ceres, Vesta, Juno, and Pallas, always with a deep appreciation of the visible sky and the awareness of ongoing cycles.
Dena DeCastro produced her Sirius Astrology Podcast from May 2007 to March 2013. There are 49 episodes at the site on a great range of subjects— interviews, (i.e., Steven Forrest, Tem Tarriktar, Eric Meyers, etc.), Black Moon Lilith, Midlife Transits, Retrogrades, Human Design, etc.
Nina Gryphon has An Archive of Astrological Podcasts. They were created in 2006 and are composed of discussions with Nina and Bernhard Bergbauer, a traditional German astrologer. There are five shows, each looking at various facets of one of the astrological houses. (Alas, only conversations for houses one through five were created.)
Axis Astrology is a new site for podcasts. Arwynne O’Neill and Alison Price are Vancouver, B.C. astrologers and they have conversations on various topics, i.e., current transits, book reviews, etc. They also have guests, e.g., Andrew Morton and Nina Gryphon. There are also graphics and relevant links for their topics at the site.
Eric Francis hosts Weekly Astrology from Planet Waves, “an astrology and public affairs program that stands at the intersection of the individual and collective minds.” Eric always includes music from independent recording artists. There are 233 episodes archived here — the most recent, Total Eclipse in Aries.

Here is a 25-minute conversation from Astrologer NYC and Leslie Hale on the BlogTalk Radio show, As Above, So Below. The topic: The Astrology of George Clooney’s 2nd Marriage.
New Zealander (and astrologer) Eleanor Catton won the 2013 Booker prize for her novel, The Luminaries. In this podcast with The Guardian she explains how she integrated accurate astrological details into her book.
