Things To Do At Home

This week, get a tarot reading, unwind with a yoga class or learn about pendulums.

Here is a sampling of the week’s events and how to tune in (all times are Eastern). Note that events are subject to change after publication.


Tune in to an episode of “Your Magic,” a new podcast from Parcast. Each Monday, Michelle Tea, a writer and the show’s host, will explore mysticism and spirituality with guests including Phoebe Bridgers, Roxane Gay and Brittany Howard. Every episode will feature a tarot-card reading and interview, as well as a spell from a spiritual practitioner and the opportunity for listeners to have a tarot reading done by Ms. Tea. This podcast is free, and available on Spotify.

Grab a bag of popcorn and watch one (or many!) of the 78 films featured in the 2021 Athena Film Festival. The annual festival, a collaboration between Women and Hollywood, an organization devoted to gender diversity and inclusion in the film industry, and Barnard College’s Athena Center for Leadership, explores and celebrates female authority in film. This year’s lineup includes “Test Pattern,” which the film critic Devika Girish said forces viewers “to question our presumptions about what rape and victimhood look like — onscreen and in life,” in her review in The New York Times. Films will premiere throughout the month. Tickets are $12 per film, and viewers have 48 hours after starting a movie to finish it.

When Anytime until March 31
