This Sagittarius/Gemini eclipse has a significant message for us…
If you learn nothing else from Astrology, you must know that during a Mercury retrograde, you have to slow down. You learn to expect glitches and time outs. (Thankfully, Mercury is direct — NOT retrograde — right now.)
I also want you to know that during EVERY eclipse, there is an invitation for you to stake a potential marker in the ground — a reference date that will help you remember a story, a commitment, a decision, or a blatant shift of some sort.
Here’s an idea: during this full moon in Sag/Gemini, I would challenge you to be blunt and super honest (Sag) with another. I have challenged myself to be deadly honest with you. Here we go…
Debra Silverman’s Predictions:
2021 is going to be difficult. I don’t believe our hopes to get back to what we had will arrive.
We have to stop saying: ‘We all just want to get back to normal.’ We cannot go backwards. We will not — by any means — get back to ‘normal.’
Look around, grab your phone… we are in the future. The Aquarian influences will be in full flare in 2021. That good old-fashioned shit has left the building.
After this eclipse season, things are going to get uncomfortable. Come mid-January, especially during the U.S. presidential inauguration, I would be shocked if there is not an uproar of sorts in our American collective.
Half of our country is on one team cheering for Red, and the other half is cheering for Blue — with no bridge between the two. We do not get along with each other; that’s just the truth. The pressure is building, and we are destined for an unprecedented collective emotional release.
Can I talk Astrology for just a few more minutes? Remember Mars? The red planet? The warrior? During late March 2020, he was traveling through the sky with cowboy boots on, kicking up a storm. I wrote a newsletter about it. At that time — in came COVID.
In January 2021, that same planet (Mars) will grab his boats and his gun, ready to kick the shit out of a lot of characters…
Mars will wrestle (square) Jupiter and Saturn, while standing way too close to (conjunct) the Moon and Uranus. It’s not good to have a Martian (Mars) next to a Rebel (Uranus) who is feeling moody (Moon).
In other words: the sky is once again (not unlike in March 2020) all set up for some harsh, conflicted, angry energy. Good to know right?
During this eclipse, I would challenge you to find your center. Give your attention to peace, to kindness, to listening. Sag talks — Gemini talks even more — until they learn about the wisdom of LISTENING. Why do you think Goddess gave us two ears and one mouth?
Let’s try — as a community of Astrology lovers — to be kind. Tell the truth to someone with your heart OPEN.
For example: I am sad that I am pigeon-holed as a liberal — that because I am a Democrat, I am supposed to reject Trump. I know his chart. I have studied him for years. I long to be objective and just look at him as a person — a reflection of our collective decision to have him lead.
So often when I write emails like this, I get negative feedback, as if they feel like they need to argue with me.
Honestly, we cannot talk bluntly about politics without having a fight, but my Sag/Gemini wants to! Don’t judge me. I won’t judge you. Let’s listen to each other.
Half of our country won’t like me if they knew my politics, and the other half will… can’t Astrology transcend such a difference? Aren’t we here to celebrate all the diverse qualities we carry? The rainbow of colors?
I want to understand those who are different. For Goddess sake, I am an astrologer. This is my life’s work: to celebrate diversity and differences, speaking to the distinctions, and allowing all and any of us to feel at home.
Under this full moon with an eclipse, I don’t want to hold back out of fear of what the ‘right’ thing is to say.
Why can’t we agree to disagree? Can’t we see past Red and Blue and politics, and just look up?
‘Time is of the essence,’ said the astrologer. And this eclipse longs for us to bluntly state: I LOVE far beyond our differences.
I challenge you to do the same during this eclipse!
What blunt truth of yours needs to be spoken?
