New Moon Podcast: This Astrological Life

I have a confession to make: I’m in love with my iPod.

Before I fell victim to this obsession I never quite understood the hubub about podcasts. Frankly, they seemed like a bit of a bother. But since iFell in love with my iPod, I never take a walk, iron a shirt, or perform any other distasteful task without the soothing sounds of Terry Gross, Ira Glass, or Sandra Tsing Loh in my ear.

This forbidden passion – combined with tomorrow’s New Moon in my 9th house, conjunct the North Node and Uranus – has prompted an experiment: I have produced my first podcast, cunningly entitled “This Astrological Life.” My tentative plan is to offer it at each New Moon, but depending on how much I enjoy it I might try to work in the Full Moon as well… and from there? Well, we’ll just have to see.

This episode is entitled Leo New Moon: Many Little Birds

Each of us longs to be recognized as the special and unique creation that we are. We spend our lives seeking work, relationships, and other successes that allow us to express our visions and viewpoints, to share our hearts, to exchange love; and it hurts to feel like just a cog in a wheel, screaming silently into a void…

I have to apologize a bit about the sound quality; I’m working on it, and hopefully it won’t sound so tinny next time.

  • I just heard it! It’s great, thanks! Looking forward to the next one.

  • Neat, Kent! Just the right bite size, too. And, incidentally, my agent just started querying publishers with a new humorous book proposal of mine today. Just over a degree from my Sun/Mercury in the 10th, eh? I’m hoping the little birds don’t crap all over it, is all.

    Bravo, April! I just listened to your Podcast! Well done. I look forward to the next one!
    I agree with Maria, it is just the right bite size!

  • Oh my God, you could totally be on NPR!!!!!!!! Your voice is perfect for it.

    Listening to what you said right after I posted my most recent entry, I think we’re saying a lot of the same thing in our respective posts, but yours is super-articulate and non-subjective. My dot is apparently HUGE. 🙂

    Keep making these, this was perfect to listen to as a wind-down!

  • Jeffrey Kishner

    Ditto on what Lucy said about NPR. You’ve got a great voice! Now I’m even a bigger fan.

  • Y’all are making me blush. But in a good way!

    I’m gonna try to keep them in the 5-10 minute range. I’ve got a short attention span…

    Good luck with your proposal, Maria! And Lucy, I’m behind in my blog reading after this crazy week, but I’ve got you on my list. I’m sure your latest is, as usual, super-articulate – and your subjectivity is exactly what I like about you!

  • The mp3 link doesn’t work. Or maybe it’s just my comp settings.

  • Neeti, try it now. I’ve got an embedded Google player in there now… all you have to do is click the Play button and it should just work.
