Follow-up to the first (!) COVID-19 post

This weekend one of my local astrology groups (the Astrological Society of Princeton ) hosted a ZOOM conversation on the COVID-19 pandemic, and I was fortunate enough to be included alongside the elegant and thoughtful Catherine Goshen in discussing our recent articles on the topic as starter for a larger roundtable. Do go check out her piece  An Astrological Perspective on the Coronavirus as Catalyst for Change .
