In honor of Pluto in Capricorn transformation of US culture through the political process from one of open and direct communication to one of complete potty mouth, Ohio Astrology recommends a new national holiday to release our pent-up angry and abusive but non-productive communication.
As in the Star Trek episode, Return of the Archons, Pluto in Capricorn can both destroy and rebuild social order and appears to be doing both until it moves into Aquarius (in 2024-2025) and brotherhood can be restored. On one day of the year, this year June 5, all societal controls on communicating will be removed allowing 24 hours of unmitigated verbal anger and abuse towards anyone and everyone.
You can, of course, do the opposite and tell all of your work crushes that you love them, ask the ticketing cop if he’s married, and that sort of thing. That, too, is acceptable on Say Anything Day.
It’s okay, too, to simply admit things like you don’t care about abortion, you don’t plan to vote and that you really don’t like organic salad dressing although you often pretend to with your healthy friends.
On June 5 the sun and moon will be in Gemini (i.e., new moon) which is a perfect configuration for verbal expression. [Corrected from earlier mention of Sagittarius full moon]. Gemini is ruled by Mercury and represents communication. With both sun and moon in this sign, even the naturally uncommunicative will be moved to speech.
Say Anything Day will be a different day each year (think Easter) so that the astrological configurations can line up for most effective release of verbal restraint. In addition to the Gemini new moon this year we have added input from transiting Venus (in Gemini), Saturn in Sagittarius (opposite sun/moon), Jupiter in Virgo (square) and Neptune in Pisces (square).
Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter and is outspoken. With Saturn in Sagittarius opposing Gemini energy, the natural tendency would be to self-censor statements which are accurate but not socially acceptable causing internal frustration. Often the accurate perceptions will burst out at some time thereby causing embarrassment. If we make this day Say Anything Day then the anxiety of millions will be relieved.
If you have a horoscope filled with mutable signs, you probably experience Say Anything Day on a regular basis albeit without premeditated planning to do so. Those of you with natal sun in Gemini and moon in Sagittarius, like, say, Republican president nominee Donald Trump and Republican politician Newt Gingrich, often say anything as regularly as earth signs take multi-vitamins.
If, however, your chart is filled with earth signs, this will be delightful opportunity to stop following the rules and forget that the object of your verbal scorn (or love) happens to be an authority figure. You don’t have to worry that Say Anything Day will ruin your career or threaten your financial security; it will be nationally recognized so, really, you are following the rules.
If your chart is filled with water, you will delight in verbal release as you’re also released from the obligation to react to how the recipient of your verbal expression feels. Feeling is one of the worst constraints on saying anything. Water signs, on June 5, will not have to say things that make others happy; you have a day of emotional freedom.
Air and fire signs are more familiar with saying anything. This year, however, air doesn’t have to smooth over unflattering comments with rationalizations that explain away the inconsistencies. In other words, air signs can simply say anything and let it go. There’s no need to analyze it later, it’s a day of mental rest, of mental freedom.
Fire signs can benefit from Say Anything Day as well even though they probably don’t care. Fire says what it needs to say with such confidence and charisma that no one really makes a challenge. Fire can take advantage of Say Anything Day in the opposite way by not being in command and in charge and, if it really wants to, admit that sometimes it doesn’t really feel in charge but is just acting the part. This, too, is acceptable on Say Anything Day.
Say Anything Day is Sunday, June 5. You have a week to gather your thoughts.
