A few astrological thoughts about the Omicron variant
When I sat down to write this week’s forecast this came out instead. Thank you for your patience!
I’d like to say a few words about the new virus variant Omicron. There are a lot of astrologers who are making a variety of astrological connections – this is happening because Neptune is in Pisces. It’s because there was a large grouping of planets in one sign last year.
