Rob Brezsny’s Astrology Newsletter for this week includes great horoscope for my fellow Aquarian teachers out there, as we hone our own craft, refine our methods, chop wood, carry water, and become better teachers and better historians, even whilst living in COVID conditions.  We are in solidarity with early feminists like Elizabeth Blackwell (1821-1910).  Huzzah!

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): No American woman was allowed to earn a
medical degree and practice as a physician until Aquarian-born Elizabeth
Blackwell did it in 1849. It was an almost impossible feat, since the all-
male college she attended undermined her mercilessly. Once she began her
career a doctor, she constantly had to outwit men who made it difficult for
her. Nevertheless, she persisted. Eventually, she helped create a medical
school for women in England and made it possible for 476 women to
practice medicine there. I propose that we make her your patron saint for
now. May she inspire you to redouble your diligent pursuit of your big
dream. Here’s your motto: “Nevertheless, I’m persisting.”
