In college, I took an intermediate painting class. Our first assignment was to imitate an old master.

I chose Flemish painter Pieter Breugel the Elder (1525-’69). I worked on reproducing his painting The Fight Between Carnival and Lent. It was tedious and liberating. I invoked Breugel’s spirit and prayed for his guidance. I sank my psyche deeply into his. By the end of the four-week process, I’d learned a lot about painting. Given current astrological omens, try something similar. Pick someone who excels at a state of being you’d like to master, and copy that for a while. Have fun with it. Play!
