Episode 81 of the podcast features a discussion about the astrological outlook for July of 2016, with astrologers Austin Coppock and Kelly Surtees.
This month begins just after Mars stations direct in Scorpio after a long retrograde period, lunations in Cancer and Capricorn, the heliacal rising of Mercury and Venus in Leo, and Uranus stationing retrograde in Aries at the end of the month.
I also highlighted some auspicious dates for beginning different types of ventures and undertakings, using the principles of electional astrology.
We begin with some news and announcements at the top of the show.
As always, the cover art for this episode is from the 2016 PlanetWatcher Astrology Calendar.

Nominate the Podcast for an ISAR Award
ISAR is giving out an award for the best audio-visual production at their upcoming conference in October, and there is an open call right now for nominations. Evidently this includes podcasts. The initial phase is that the top five productions that get the most nominations before the deadline on June 30 will then be voted on by the general ISAR membership later this year.
If you would like to nominate The Astrology Podcast then you should send an email to Glenn Perry at firstname.lastname@example.org saying that you would like to nominate the podcast and giving them the link to it. Please CC Sam Reynolds on the email at: email@example.com. If the podcast gets enough nominations in the next few days then it could win an award, which would be kind of cool.
