April and Jen bring you up to speed on a busy holiday week here in the US: The second of three Jupiter/Pluto meet-ups; Mercury and the Sun join forces and sextile Uranus in Taurus; Saturn heads back to Club Capricorn; and we wave a goodbye sparkler at the last Cancer/Capricorn eclipse for 8 years: an Independence Day lunar eclipse. Plus: Flag cake, the Minnesota goodbye, helpful advice from the San Diego Zoo, and empty thought balloons!
05:06 – Santa Claus joins up with the God of Transformation for the second of three Jupiter/Pluto meetings in Capricorn (June 29/30). As we discuss their three conjunctions, Jen reads much more into April’s mind than is actually there… (To hear about the first conjunction, go to Episode 19, Jupiter Meets Pluto: Two Thumbs…Up? The third meet-up is on November 12.)
18:21 – The Sun and Mercury join up in Cancer (June 30). Here’s the NASA link. Oh, and do not look directly at the Sun! Or touch the hot primate statues!
37:26 – Past similar eclipses at this point were on July 7 2009, July 5 2002, and July 6 1982. What’s it all about?
39:07 – Is this penumbral Lunar Eclipse visible where you live? Find out here.
