What has made a difference for you during The Pandemic?

Feb 02, 2021

How are you doing? What have you been learning? What have you been seeing and sensing?

I've been watching a lot of Star Trek lately, rewatching old episodes and finding my imagination in space again.

You know what I really love? The stars. The night sky. The moon. The planets. I have always loved astronomy, but it's only until very recently, like the past couple months, that I've learned about astrology.

I did an online conference where Theresa Reed, @thetarotlady, was a guest speaker, and her clarity and fun and groundedness and expertise got me hooked.

Since then I've been doing a deep dive into moon signs, birth charts, houses, and aspects. It's one of those fun things I'm doing, not only because it's helping me understand parts of myself that are still a mystery to me, but also because it's pure pleasure to learn.

There is so much to learn with astrology. It feels like an endless well of education. This is a perfect Pandemic hobby.

I don't know about you, but I've hit so many ruts during the Pandemic. Cabin fever, boredom, and fear. Having something to sink my teeth into over the long term has made a huge difference for my mood.

What about you? What has made a difference for you during the Pandemic? I'd love to know.

Contact me and tell me, and if enough people write I'll do a round-up email of ideas.

As we all know, this is going to go on for a while longer. Let's pool our resources, so we can keep discovering new things to do.



P.S. I'm also doing the Book Riot Read Harder Challenge this year. It's a great way to help you "break out of your reading bubble and expand your world through books". I'm currently reading Feminism is for Everybody by Bell Hooks. What are you reading?
