Last week might have seemed stressful (on top of our usual 2020 stress) because we were coming to the pre-finale of this year. Friday, November 13 brought Mars going direct. Finally! That meant the biggest, pushiest, longest male lessons of the year—moving from Piscean Age sensibilities into Aquarian Age sensibilities—were over. Unfortunately those who refused the lessons are going to be stuck and have a hard time moving forward. How that affects others is changing, so take heart that the Piscean Age Overlord Effect is ‘thisclose’ to coming to an end.

Men who have learned, or at least accepted, the new vibration can still have problems because they’ve gone from having a foot on each side of the fence to totally being on one side. And they don’t know what that means. Have faith. We’re getting there. We just have no control over how long that takes because it depends on each individual. That is teaching us patience and trust. So, go with the flow. Men, give yourselves a break (without permission to be a dick). Women, give men a break (without putting up with men being dicks). This is a 26,000-year change in reality and it’s hard!

We also had a Dark of the Moon on that Friday, which meant that our emotional equilibrium was off with no Moon phase to guide us. So it was like The Male Lesson of 2020 just stopped when we were least able to deal with it. The New Moon on Saturday brought new hope and energy, but we can only go high-up to low-down and back again so many times before we become numb. A lot of us are feeling numb right now.

So we’re in a time before our next and last big event of 2020 on the Winter Solstice on December 21 to kind of find our balance, or at least allow ourselves to be numb, while our soul-selves are still doing the hard work. People are already planning for Christmas decorating, gift buying, traveling and visiting, even though some of that may not be possible by then. But right now we need that hope because it is something that makes us feel happy and normal while we get prepared to embrace the New Normal.

(Just A Suggestion: send holiday cards in the mail this year even if you normally don’t. Not only is it a more powerful and substantial way to connect than an electronic shout-out, it supports our postal system, and they could use it!)

That Solstice event—Jupiter and Saturn in conjunction in Aquarius—is our time of healing the trauma of 2020. The Piscean Age energy is swept away then so we’ll be standing in the full-on vibration of the Aquarian Age. But like anything coming out of trauma, there is recovery before moving forward. What that means is to take it easy. We are being taken exactly where we need to be. Relax and ride our personal current in the river because we’re guided by angelic energy and they have our backs.

That recovery time lasts less than two months but is important during that time to really, really, really give ourselves and everyone else a break. The astrological event that completes our recovery and propels us into the New Age happens in February of 2021. Master Astrologer Gahl Sasson’s new book “The Astrology of 2021: Out of Darkness, Light” is now available (Please get it–it’s indispensable). Here is an excerpt about this event. Gahl writes:

The door of the new year appeared in the last ten days of 2020, but in 2021 we are asked to step through the gateway and boldly go where we have not ventured before. On February 11/12 of 2021, seven heavenly bodies will be in Aquarius for the first time in thousands of years. The quote above (which I’ve put below) is what we can expect from the Age of Aquarius:

Harmony and understanding

Sympathy and trust abounding

No more falsehoods or derisions

Golden living dreams of visions

Mystic crystal revelation

And the mind’s true liberation

Aquarius! Aquarius!”

From “Hair” by Gerome Ragni, James Rado and Galt MacDermot

The good news is that in 2021, we have the tools we need to change institutions, overcome racism, dissolve conflict, get rid of populism and nationalism, and reconnect to equality and global collaboration. Aquarius is the sign of democracy, progress, and humanitarian causes. The conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius (on the Winter Solstice, 2020), which we will feel throughout 2021 has not happened since the 1500s, the time we emerged out of the Dark Ages into the Renaissance.

Gahl also mentions the significance of the numerology of 2021. It equals five which is (he writes) “a challenging number that is associated with the sphere Severity in the Kabbalistic Tree of Life, and in numerology symbolizes war and instability. But to be honest, the biggest challenge of 2021 we must deal with is that it comes in the aftermath of 2020.”

To me, the card in the Tarot that represents next year the most is the Five of Wands, that depicts five men in conflict with their wands as weapons. However, if you take a closer look at the configuration and imagine it ten or twenty seconds in the future, the wands move together to form a perfect pentagram, the symbol of humankind. So instead of just a card of chaos/conflict, it represents chaos/conflict coming into harmony.

Also take into numerological consideration that Joe Biden will be our 46th president, which equals ten, which is one plus zero, meaning new beginnings with unlimited options. And Kamala Harris, when she becomes the 47th president, will equal eleven (new beginnings plus new beginnings in balance), which is a Master Number with a connection to the higher source of wisdom.

Regarding the election and our future, people are so concerned that since nearly half of the country voted for Trump (although not all of them believe the rhetoric religiously), there will be huge difficulties in the United States becoming more divided in 2021. However, what’s not being considered is that the fear-fuel that has been feeding the self-survival hate vibration throughout this year ends on the Solstice.

People having a hard time moving into the Aquarian Age may still carry their fear, but the fuel that makes it nuclear will not be there. The vibration of equality, communication, and humanity takes over. Scared people standing in a dark, close-packed room filled with noxious gas that makes even breathing difficult, and angry because they’re scared they don’t know what will happen to them, will feed each other with that fear and anger until hate becomes the outcome because it’s about survival of self against everyone else.

Take the noxious gas out and fill it will fresh, rich oxygen that gives everyone a chance to breathe fully and refresh their bodies’ circulatory system which clears the brain, and fill the room with natural sunlight and a path out of the darkness, then the fear, anger and hate dissipate. Maybe not overnight, but they will dissipate. That’s what’s happening to us on the Solstice. We still have to leave the room and adjust to oxygen and light after being in the dark with noxious gas, but we do it. And we will be doing that in the recovery time that starts on the Solstice.


One of the greatest gifts I’ve received doing the work I do is being able to completely feel someone else’s point of view. When a client asks about someone in their life, usually because there is a problem with that person from my client’s point of view, I can call in that person’s higher energy and feel what they feel and explain why they’re behaving as they are, whether it’s because of recent events, early life or past lives. There is always a reason even if it may not seem apparent, even to the person who is ‘misbehaving’.

Over the years, that has given me an understanding that everyone is right for where they are in their lives, even if that ‘being right’ hurts others, purposefully or not. Because we haven’t been taught to see that in the evolution of “me”, we don’t usually give others a break when they need it.

Friday, November 13 was World Kindness Day, although I think kindness can easily be expressed everyday if we just give it a try. We’re in the evolution of “us” now, which happens faster if we get on-board consciously. With that in mind, give those around us a break for whatever is deemed ‘bad behavior’ from our point of view. There is a reason, and it’s a good one, even if we can’t see it.

In a world where we can choose to be anything, choose to be kind.


Just read this on InstaGram, from Congressman-Elect Jamaal Bowman (NY-16) and needed to include it before I ended:

America has a system of racism, sexism, antisemitism and Islamophobia that is a corrupt, ugly, immoral system. It needs to change. So, good trouble and ruckus needs to be brought to Congress!”

Good trouble and Ruckus! Yes, indeed. Let’s all be John Lewis! And move everyone into the Aquarian Age with aggressive positivity!!!!

I offer this with love and gratitude…
