In the first half, Annie Jacobsen, a journalist who writes about war, weapons, US national security and government secrecy, shared her research on how the US government worked with psychics and scientists with top-secret clearances. She saw origins for this coming from WWII, and occult interests of the Nazis, and the Soviets. By the 1960s, the Soviets began to merge technology with ideas considered to be supernatural, and the CIA become more competitive in these arenas, she cited. With the CIA announcing they had dropped their Remote Viewing program in the 1990s, most assumed that US psychic research had ceased in the government and military, but she found that was not the case with covert programs re-emerging in the 21st century.
She located declassified documents on the British astrologer Louis de Wohl, whose column "Stars Foretell" was popular in America during WWII, and learned he was actually a British intelligence agent sent by MI5, and was using his columns as propaganda to get the Americans to enter the war. She also talked about how scientists had "conversion" events, moments in which they became convinced of the veracity of ESP and other phenomena. Jacobsen recently interviewed famed psychic Uri Geller at his homes in England and Israel, and found him to be a "force to be reckoned with." She witnessed his telekinetic spoon bending process, and while skeptics believe what he does is akin to a magic act, she said he uses a technique that is different from magicians, and is not trying to manipulate or deflect what the viewer sees.
In the latter half, Heather Arielle, the founder and CEO of Arielle’s Astrology, discussed how her readings focus on personal, practical, and powerful ways astrology can improve your daily life. She also spoke about current planetary energies and the astrological charts of Donald Trump and the United States. The moon just went into Aries, which the sun is also in. New moons are generally great times to begin new projects, and Aries is very dynamic, and related to powerful energies, she noted. Trump's chart is very connected to USA's chart, and we are seeing stressful transits such as a Saturn opposition. Uranus is also factor in Trump's chart, and there will be a culmination around the time of the solar eclipse in August, which will further illuminate his life, for better or worse, she said.
The health of the US is undergoing a Neptune square, she continued, which has a weakening effect, and can relate to stress and deception. She also did a chart on the Affordable Care Act, and the recent failure of the Republicans to replace it. They were working against the Saturn transit energy, she explained, which suggests plans should be meticulous, and patiently plotted out. Arielle talked about her reading approaches with clients, in which she combines preparation with inspiration. She is a practitioner of Transcendental Meditation, which she suggested is a simple technique to become more grounded, and unify the mind.
