Coronavirus Self-Isolation Diary, Week __
Monday, April 20, 2020
As a scientist, I understand the need for self-isolation. However, the circumstances are driving me mad. Therefore, I have decided to apply my genius to this problem by building a device that I call Project: Quantum Leap. It will enable me to send my mind back in time a couple of years into the body of someone else, thus both inventing time travel and stopping this pandemic before it starts!

Sun square Saturn
I have been working nonstop on the project since yesterday and refuse to let anything stop me. That includes the incessant barking of Barney, the dog from across the street. He is normally quiet, but has been yapping at me all day long — as if he’s warning me of something. How annoying! I must finish this project soon.

New Moon in Taurus
My will is strong and my mind is focused. I will achieve this dream of mine no matter what. Barney continues to bark non-stop, and escaped his yard and barked at me through my window a couple of times today. Stupid dog. You won’t stop me either!

My unfettered brilliance has enabled me to almost complete the machine in a short period of time. By my calculations I should be able to make the leap on Saturday evening. At least once I’m safely in the past, I will no longer have to put up with Barney’s bizarre behaviour.

Moon Void of Course in Taurus from 8:43 PM Eastern
By later this evening I will have my calculations complete, but will double-check them for accuracy before I go to sleep. Meanwhile, Barney is completely out of control. I am tempted to call the authorities about this.

Pluto turns retrograde
Mercury square Pluto
While I was asleep last night, Barney got the basement window open and came into my house. instead of barking at me, he sat at my computer and banged away at the keyboard with his muddy paws. I threw him out, but before I turned off the computer I looked at what he had produced. Of course, dog paws can’t work a keyboard very well. Strange, but it almost looks like an actual message. Clearly I’m exhausted.
Nonetheless, Project: Quantum Leap is now complete and I am ready to go back in time and prove my intellect to the world by ending this terrible pandemic before it even started! I am supremely confident of my ideas, and absolutely nothing will stop me.
