This Week in Astrology #123 -- 8-3-09

A Full Moon Lunar Eclipse -- the third eclipse in five weeks! -- is the uncontested headliner this week. But I should probably also mention that Mercury's making soft aspects to Pluto and Venus.

Part 2 is content-rich this week -- good thing too, since there's no Part 3! A well-read listener contributes a list of traditional astrology websites and books (see the links section below), several listeners opine about how This Week in Astrology could go to the next level, and you'll learn how to slow me down if I'm talking too fast for you! (Scroll down for helpful links.)

Hear all about this and more -- click here to listen, or go to to learn about getting the show through iTunes. (We love it when you subscribe through iTunes!)
