This is just a short list that I was able to find relatively quickly, but I recommend all students of astrology learn to see the planetary fingerprints in the daily headlines. Often the way the media chooses to focus its headlines are influenced by or reflective of the planetary significations. Of all the things happening in the world, I find it’s always interesting to see how the simplest planetary transits often take center stage right as the planets are perfecting their aspects!
Prayer: Help us to hear the music of the spheres, singing all around us, all of the time!
