I CAN’T BREATHE

“There is one way of breathing that is shameful and constricted. Then, there’s another way: a breath of love that takes you all the way to infinity.” Rumi

           The year 2020 could well go down in history as the year we couldn’t breathe. Although George Floyd died on May 25, prompting the phrase which originated with another Black man killed in 2014, many Black people feel they haven’t been able to breathe for generations in America. Breathing started slowing down for everyone however, much earlier in the year than May. For most Americans it started trickling into our lives in February and March, earlier for others around the world who stopped breathing in December and January. The disease carries symptoms of struggling to breathe; too many have literally stopped breathing. The rest of us, in lockdown in our own homes, and hidden from one another behind masks soon began to feel like we too, were choking. It’s occurring on other levels as well. The year started with fires choking humans and animals alike in Australia and soon our own west coast fires were adding to this 2020 idea of not being able to breathe.

          Breath and breathing are ruled by Gemini, the sign of our full moon the end of this month. Donald Trump has a Gemini Sun, a Gemini personality. However, he is MEANT to aspire to his Leo Rising, a sign of Love, and a fire sign. Fire and Air, Leo and Gemini, firing up the nation and the world, in more ways than one. On November 30, the full Moon and the planet Earth will both be parked right on top of his personality which lives in the 11th house of all of Humanity. A literal translation of Gemini in combination with Leo is, “The “Breath of Life.” The chart of our own U.S. has Gemini Rising (according to Dr. Douglas Baker), which is the first indicator of this country’s Soul’s Purpose. In this time of transformation, may we all focus on breathing deeply with each other and for each other, as we transform into the new humanity.

 Everyone: On November 30 honor the Full Moon by breathing deeply and with love for all.
