Planetary Parallels from the 1960s

Update: 2024-03-23


Episode 6

In this podcast, professional astrologers Chani Nicholas, Thea Anderson, and Eliza Robertson look to the sky to make sense of what’s happening here on Earth.

This episode brings you into the astrological group chat to talk through the ways that recent and upcoming transits mirror the events of the mid-to-late 1960s. Covering everything from how the lunar nodes (and eclipses) in Aries and Libra have coincided with violence and anti-war movements to the ways that the rare conjunctions of Saturn, Mercury, and the Sun in Pisces have reverberated themes of sacrifice and martyrdom, it breaks down how these astro events have manifested in history and explores how they could continue to land this time around. Plus, it includes tips on how to work with the astrology as it unfolds.
