October 2020 Printable Calendar

8:00 AM


Libra is the month associated with October and is illustrating my printable calendar this year

Here we are, in the last quarter of a crazy year, one I am hoping we can put behind us soon and never revisit. 

I'm going to be frank, I have reached the zero F given level. I can't bring myself to care about anything, at this point and I'm mainly focusing on the things that makes me happy. We've been cooped up and disrupted for nearly 7 months over here, and it starts to show. 

On the program in October, is the reopening of restaurants and bars across the State of Maharashtra, it's probably what we earned completing Level 9 of "2020 the video game

In September, I enjoyed seeing a bit more of my friends since social visits are becoming a bit more acceptable, and this alone has made a world of difference for my mood. Just sitting down on the sofa talking to a friend while cradling a cup of tea is the best form of therapy in troubled time. 

I normally would ramble a bit longer about what's been going on in the past month, but if this blog can attest to it, I have been busy putting together the 2021 calendar, which this year I will not offer for free download all at once the way I did all the previous years. 
I am planning to roll it out to my Patreons in the next couple of days, and in the second half, offering it for sale in my Etsy shop. I will continue offering the page of the months for download on the first of every months on the blog, but having access to all 12 months all at once is no longer going to be a freebie. 

Speaking of free printable, you can go download the October 2020 page now, and be on your way if you don't like my artsy rambling that are about to follow. 

Like all the other Zodiac illustration, they are available for sale in both my Redbubble and Society6 shop.

October is the month associated with the Zodiac sign of Libra, which actually starts on  September 23 and ends on October 22. 

I happen to know quite a few Libra, heck I married one! 

Libras are said to be caring, diplomatic, are fair-play and tend to take a long time to make a decision because they carefully ponder the pro and cons, often to a fault.

Having several close friends and family in the sign, I find all of those very accurate, and in many way, my husband complement my Cancer on cusp of Gemini impulsiveness and my tendency to get moody over nothing. He grounds me a bit while I encourage him not to linger in endless decision pondering.

That's about it for this monthly catch up folks! I'm going to dive into October and see what it has in store, and we will do a recap on November 1st.

  1. It has been the most unfestive october of all times. Come October the bengali ear reverberate with sound of pooja drums and the taste of pooja khichri stimulates taste buds. Alas, nothing if this sort this year. It is going to be virtual pooja as I understand. No public gathering, no pandal hopping. As the divine mother desires, so be it.

    1. I think this year is the perfect occasion to create new traditions and redefine what is important in a festival.

      As a European living in India, I had to do that with Christmas, it's hard to do, but in the end, I created my own version of Christmas, my own traditions, and I wouldn't want to trade that for the world.

      They key is to find your own ways to make a celebration mean something to you, not go by what society at large wants you to think is the right way.
      Growing up I thought big family dinners, and loads of presents under the tree was really what Christmas is supposed to be like. But Even as a teen, I didn't quite like the whole mandatory family gathering. As an adult I wasn't even sure I wanted to be part of organising an of that. And then I moved to India where I didn't even know what to do about it, or what it was that I liked about Christmas and what it is that I didn't like. And I was faced with this freedom to redefine it and have basically a blank canvas to do it.

      Over the years I realised I really need the authentic Swiss cookies, the decoration all December long, the advent calendar, but that I HATE cooking a Christmas feast, that it stress me out to no end, and that I'd rather eat out or order take out food.
      I also realised I don't really care about gifts much, and we had this tradition these past few years of going out to watch a movie as a family on Christmas day.
      This year we might have to make it a Netflix movie at home and I'll just order cakes and snacks :-)
