I’ve been complaining about feeling creatively bankrupt for quite some time. With Pluto stuck on my IC and Jupiter backtracking through my third house, I can understand why I haven’t had the will to sit at this computer while attempting to write something for more than a few minutes every morning. Once I’m done posting on this blog, I’m on to other things.
Since the COVID-19 lockdowns began, I have been behaving myself in a lot of ways. I’ve expanded my workout routine to include some activities that I haven’t been doing for years, and I feel better about that. My garden looks great, even after the rainiest June and July I can remember has kept me from my continuing renovation of the north side of my house. I’ve also been walking outside a lot, taking in all that nature has to offer. Unfortunately, I’ve also been watching way too much TV in my spare time.
That’s probably not going to change when “Big Brother 22” debuts next week. In fact, just before I began to write this blog post, I was checking out cast spoilers while trying to figure out the best time to join CBS All-Access so I can watch the live feeds from the “Big Brother” house.
On the bright side, a few months of “Big Brother” will help me to focus on something other than stupid American politics. I need to turn away from the US election cycle. I do so much in my everyday life to avoid stress, and then I watch MSNBC and Donald Trump fucks that all up.
So, I’m grateful that the universe is sending me a new season of “Big Brother” just when I need it the most. Hopefully, if the rumors are true, my favorite player ever (and my Capricorn sister) Janelle Pierzina will be one of the house guests.
Something in my stars is telling me that I need a distraction. Maybe it’s Venus in my ninth house — that’s a good transit for a pleasure trip. I’m going for a massage this afternoon, and when I get back I’m going to do what I can to continue along this path. Perhaps I’ll start blogging about “Big Brother” like I do about other TV shows. With only former cast members returning to the show, I’ll probably be able to confirm actual birth dates for the house guests, too. That’s often what keeps me from discussing the show in the first place!
Anyway, I’ve got a good feeling about this upcoming season of my favorite summertime show. To be honest, it’s nice to feel excited about anything lately. I can’t wait for the end of the year when these planets start to get off my back!
