Episode 170 of the podcast features a discussion between Chris Brennan, Kelly Surtees, and Austin Coppock where we provide an overview of the major planetary alignments happening in September of 2018.
This month a number of planets are finally moving direct again, after a period where several were retrograde at the same time over the past few months.
Other major alignments this month include Mars squaring Uranus for the third and final time, Venus moving into Scorpio and preparing to turn retrograde next month, and Jupiter making an exact sextile to Pluto.
At the top of the episode we discuss the recent Vox Explained episode on astrology that appeared on Netflix recently, and also talk about some other astrology podcasts that have been launched over the past few months.
Below you will find the show notes, followed by links to download the recording of this episode, which is available in both audio and video versions.
First, we have a bunch of news and announcements.
New Professional Astrologer Course
It is called The Professional Astrologer Course.
The purpose of the course is to help students make the transition into practicing astrology professionally, so that you can eventually make it your primary vocation.
We also focus on some different strategies for growing your audience and business, in order to achieve success and financial stability in your chosen career field.
The course was just launched this week, and you can get in now at the introductory price.
New Shirts from The Astrology Podcast
Listeners of the podcast have been asking for merch for a couple of years now, and I’m excited to announce that we have just launched a new line of branded t-shirts!
We have about a dozen different shirt designs up now, and there will be more coming soon. You can see all of the shirts we are currently offering on our page on Amazon:
The shirts come in a variety of different colors and sizes, and they are printed on super soft premium quality t-shirt blanks from Bella + Canvas. They tend to have a slimmer fit, so you may want to order one size larger than your normal size to get the right fit.
We are also actively soliciting new shirt designs and ideas, so if you want to pitch one please email Chris at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you end up getting a shirt then please send in a picture of yourself wearing it, and we will probably build a gallery of listener submitted pictures in the next few weeks!
