it's my son's project.  it launched on January 13, I guess that means it finishes on Feb 10.

His objective is to make astrological events accessible on a "regular" wall calendar.  Aspects and risings and things I know nothing about.   But even budding astrologers need as they study the ebbs and flows of their experience, and correlate it to celestial events.  

In the permie and local fashion, he and his partner in the undertaking commissioned  local artists to create works of art for each month.

The calendar starts after the spring equinox.  They are trying to get funds to cover the printing, and I think will ship anywhere in the world.

I think it is a great project, but as I said, I am the mom, and so am "a little" biased.  I pledged for a calendar (cost= 22.00).  The originals of the art work are also available as rewards.

I hope permie people will at least take a look, see if the calendar is something they could use...

it shows phases of the moon (for planting), tons and tons of stuff

Do you have a link to the campaign? Is it a crowdfunding thing?

It is crowdfunding, and they don't appear to be making much progress, kind of bogged down at just over 10 % in the first week.   They really need a boost if they are going to make enough for the printing.  Marketing and a base of support may be the next thing they need to figure out!
 
Now I am super curious what sports would be like if we allowed drugs and tiny ads.
