People are asking when the 2019 Janet’s Plan-its calendar will be available. The answer is, sadly, there will NOT be a 2019 Janet’s Plan-its. The 2018 ebook is the end of Janet’s astrological calendar line, and it’s been a good run since the first calendar in 2001.
Janet will continue to provide astrological information in a variety of formats, all free to use. Now, that’s good news!
For years now, the Janet’s Plan-its short daily message and 1-5 day rating have been, and will continue to be, emailed free every morning to people who “subscribe” to Janet’s blogs. (See the sign-up box in the footer of any page of AstrologyBooth.com.) The year’s day ratings will be displayed on month tables, as they appeared in the 2018 ebook. The complete set should be ready sometime in December. Meanwhile, to get you started with 2019, the tables for January through March are already posted on the 2019 Month Tables page.
Then there are Janet’s occasional free emailed newsletters and blog articles. If you aren’t on the list for the eNewsletters, sign up in the footer of any page on AstrologyBooth.com, below the box to subscribe for blogs. (There are separate lists for these two offerings.)
Have you watched Janet’s monthly half-hour show, LOOKING UP? It’s produced at the award-winning local cable access station in Janet’s home town, West Hartford, CT (WHCTV.org) and they post it on YouTube.
Janet’s 2019 On a Page has been available for a year or more on the AstrologyBooth.com website. By early 2019, the 2020 On a Page will be posted. These are among the many free articles in the Study Booth.
At a recent New Age Fair for the Astrological Society of Connecticut, Inc., Janet gave a lecture, 2019: Rekindling Hope. You can listen to the MP3 audio recording and get a PDF of the handout on Janet’s Podcasts page.
And of course, Janet is always “at your service” for your questions or a personal consultation, which can be customized to fit your needs.
Many people use Llewellyn’s calendars, which dominate the market. I lean away from recommending them simply because the Llewellyn publishing company has not always been kind nor fair to astrological writers, from what I have heard from colleagues.
If you want an astrological calendar with lots of good data – albeit no explanations – for decades, Janet has used Jim Maynard’s “Celestial Influences” calendars, which come in several formats (available from many booksellers, including Amazon, or from Quicksilver Productions, recommended because creators of calendars are paid better when you buy directly from them).
For detailed, thorough tables in addition to an appointment layout with a brief comment for the week, try Tom Jerome Roma’s Weekly Applied Astronomical And Astrological Forecasts And Guide For 2019 (to order, call Tom at 610-833-5253). Janet’s used Tom’s calendar for years but it’s not as easy as Maynard’s. For instance, Tom does not change the times to Daylight Saving Time and only lists Eastern Standard Time. Maynard offers calendars in Pacific Time and definitely shifts into DST gear.
For an easy-to-use assessment of the quality of each day for various common activities – coded green, yellow or red, like traffic lights – get The Good Timing Guide by Madeline C. Gerwick (available from PolarisBusinessGuides.com).
Hopefully, selecting among these resources, you’ll get through 2019!
