This Week in Astrology #124 - 8-10-09

Mars is this week's headliner: he trines the Three Aquarians (Neptune, Chiron and Jupiter) throughout the week, and breathes life into the long-running Saturn-Uranus opposition with a challenging T-Square. Also noteworthy are the Sun's oppositions to Jupiter and Chiron, and a Mercury-Saturn square.

In Part 2, an L.A. voice coach emails with a promising solution to the issue of my talking too fast for some listeners, we learn whether Mars will appear as large as the Moon this month, and a listener offers tips on talking with your planets. And in Part 3, I speak with an aspiring writer about which genres his chart supports (sci-fi, horror or adventure?) and how astrology can be used to help flesh out fictional characters.

Finally, this is the first show in which I am using compression to smooth out and boost the volume of the final mix. Can you hear the difference, and do you have an opinion about it?
