In episode 357 astrologers Patrick Watson and Chris Brennan answer some questions about astrology from listeners of the podcast, and discuss some miscellaneous astrological topics, ranging from understanding significant transits to the meaning of planets in detriment.
We start the episode by talking about how we met on an astrology forum in 2005, and our experience going from being the youngest astrologers at events to becoming solidly middle aged astrologers.
Then we begin with a discussion on the hidden but significant ways in which eclipses and other transits can manifest, and then eventually answer some questions from listeners.
We recorded this episode together in the studio in Denver while Patrick was here to record a new course we are creating on rectification.
