Astrology Outlooks / Mentalism, Magic & the Paranormal

About the show

In the first half, astrologer Mark Lerner shared astrological outlooks for the years ahead. He noted that currently, planetary alignments by the three outer celestial bodies, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto could affect global business and finance. This year, Saturn (in Aquarius) and Uranus (in the money sign of Taurus) are clashing three times, he explained. This will cause a "rift between the traditional areas management and banking" and standards such as gold and silver versus "the rapidly moving interest in online digital currencies." Pluto is returning after a 243-year cycle to its starting point in the US chart, as well as Neptune, and this could cause some negativity, he indicated.

Lerner researched the astrology of the Carrington Event of 1859 (a massive solar flare and coronal mass ejection that hit the Earth) and how it could happen again when we enter a sunspot maximum cycle. Russia is in the middle of their first "Saturn return," a time of identity crisis and upheaval, and that's why we see the issues with opposition figure Alexei Navalny, and uprisings against Putin, Lerner suggested. He also looked at the astrology of 2024, noting that many things will be different by the time we reach that year, and there will be a total solar eclipse on April 8, 2024 that will trace a path through the United States.


In the latter half, mystic artist/magician, Joseph Diamond talked about how he combines his paranormal interests with stage magic and mentalism. He recounted how he became the world record holder in 2010 for solving the world's largest corn maze, blindfolded. Accompanied by a reporter, he made it through the 11.1-mile maze in two hours and 50 minutes, and said he used "contact mind-reading" to intuit the navigation. Diamond, the artist-in-residence at the Dole Mansion in Crystal Lake, IL, said the location appears to be haunted and there have been numerous reports of cold spots and shadowy figures (view his photo of such an anomaly).

He talked about his fascination with Ouija boards and how he started a collection of the boards when people wanted to get rid of theirs. A friend of his tried to destroy a Ouija board by putting it in a fire, and it merely hissed instead of igniting. Rather than a paranormal explanation, Diamond revealed that Parker Brothers made the boards out of flame-retardant material because people often played with them by candlelight. He conducted a live mentalism experiment, and correctly identified a four-digit number that George had calculated on the fly. Diamond also detailed how he uses psychometry (gleaning information by touching objects) and dream interpretation in his readings and performances.

During the last half-hour, a replay from 2005 was featured, when TV personality Morgus "teleported" into the LA studio.
