This Week in Astrology #156 -- 4-5-10

Pluto retrograde * Saturn returns to Virgo * A Republican response * The "Weeping Degree" explained

There are two major headlines this week: Pluto turns retrograde and Saturn returns to Virgo. A Mars-Pluto quincunx creates some tension, and Mercury squares Mars and trines Pluto.

Our listener emails feature a Republican laying into Benjamin for what she perceives to be his delusional, pie-in-the-sky ideas about healthcare reform and other topics. We also answer a listener's question about why 29 degrees Pisces is called the "Weeping Degree."
