The last solar week was about reorientation, sudden changes and getting through confusing shifts.
This solar week is about caring, risk taking and purpose. Similar to last week, unexpected things can happen, to which we might align.
It can bring the fear of purposelessness and the potential awareness where to find purpose. Through this awareness we can find the right environment that nourishes us mentally, physically, and emotionally with what we need. The important thing for this week is to act out of integrity and to not let the fear drive us into the wrong things and into a feeling of having to care for something that we do not care about.

New Moon of the Unexpected. Wild Self-Sufficiency, Independence and Autonomy. Sturdy Defense of Boundaries and Gray Rocking, if necessary. Being called to take a Risk, but listening within attentively and giving only if we truly have something to give

This new moon brings the energy to be hurt or healed through bad or good organization. If the organization is good and of service to others, people might find their place or be put into their place and it might be ensured, that everyone get's what they need and is properly nurtured and cared for. If the organization is bad and does neglect to truly be of service, it pushes people to find more independence and autonomy. It pushes people to find more self-sufficiency and to distance themselves from institutions or individuals who do not serve them.
The energies also point to a strong tendency to accept people (followers, allies or private relationships) who later turn out to be very damaging. The mantra of this new moon is: I'm better off on my own, than to be with the wrong people.
Problematic: unsuccessful separation from what we might need to separate from, in order to outgrow expired life cycles and meet the challenges either alone or with the right people. Taking foolish risks and forging inauthentic alliances with the wrong people purely out of mental reasoning, which might bite back at us later when they turn out to be very imbalanced. Enraging wrong allies, who sap us empty, who deliberately step onto our toes for their own progress or who simply are incorrect, through openly demonstrated arrogance, which makes it harder to separate from them. Not being bold enough to naturally be respected and to respond with severity if nothing helps, but timidly asking for respect when our boundaries are severely overstepped.
Productive: knowing our boundaries. Not teaming up with those who will run over us, which is often indicated by them running over everything and everyone else, as well. Only forging alliances and taking risks if they truly feel purposeful and absolutely right. Separating from shocks, that we might have encountered and becoming self-sufficient. Finding our inner wildness and stopping to tolerate that people run us over. Social distancing 2.0. Separating through simple non-involvement and if necessary becoming as uninteresting as a gray rock and providing no target for attack. Yet, being determined and forceful when it comes to defending our boundaries. Non-involvement and modesty is not to be confused with weakness. Rising above the shock and biting through problems alone or with the right people - with those who are truly correct for us and who know to serve and work together, rather than doing damage through working against each other. Turning our energy to service and investigating how we can serve others and humanity. This is a moon cycle where people get involved in new challenges, that really serve a purpose and that can open up uncharted territory and a greater vision.
Sharing our Growth, inner Transformation and Feelings with those who need to hear it, and positively influencing others – or not

These energies are part of the Pluto retrograde:
Pluto Retrograde brings Transformation through Truth being shared and searched for. It brings potential Realignment and the Pressure to know, to universalize our Knowing and to share, influence and impact
- 25 April 2020 18:54 UTC: Pluto stations retrograde in 22.214.171.124 ䷼ (Capricorn)
Pluto will wander retrograde for a little more than 5 months. Looking out for secret knowledge will continue to be a big theme during the coming months.
This retrograde is about aligning to truth, about aligning to those who speak truth and have a wise and beneficial influence upon us, and about timely correction through aligning to those endeavors and relationships that are simply promising and purposeful. It is also about aligning to those people who care, and ideally not being fooled in that and getting the runaround.
In the shadow, the Pluto retrograde brings depressed energy, that is so restless and feels so limited, that it tries to escape an otherwise beneficial and purposeful situation by aligning with forces and people who seem to be more powerful and seem to have the better promises, but who might not necessarily fulfill those wishes. This can be light field infiltration and giving up one's own inner authority due to “my spirit guides told me so”, while the spirit guides later turn out to be a hoax and hijack us with empty promises. This can also be people who seem mighty and maybe they are. Whatever we align to, my best guess is that the long-term result depends on how we do that. Do we do it from authenticity and our own truth? Do we do it with calm determination? Or do we mentally justify taking a risk that simply doesn't feel right? Do we leave a trail of destruction and destabilize others, who truly care and who thought we cared as well because we said so?
Pluto direct in October 2020 brings karmic retribution. Thus, some of those who are destabilizing others and misusing their trust now, might feel powerless and isolated later.
That being said, Pluto direct also leads to integrating the outsiders, freaks and those who work independently - if they know and accept their place with modesty. It is about integrating those who don't need to be managed and controlled because they themselves already have the understanding and drive to be of service and to manage their resources well.
This current Pluto retrograde and the shifts and alignments, that take place around this date in time, lay the foundation for the karmic reward and also the great transformation, that can happen a few months later down the road.
Driving ourselves nuts in total Impatience and in going through the “if and when” of mind – or being patient with Analyzation, with Negotiation and with finding out how everyone can be taken good care of (or with evaluating if someone truly cares)

26 April 2020 09:00 UTC: Sun conjunct Uranus in 184.108.40.206 ䷚ (Taurus)
Problematic: Being restless, hungry for progress and impatient with the unfolding of the current process and seeking knowing elsewhere, in the worst case consulting and throwing money at someone who acts as if they care, but who does not care at all and only tells us what we want to hear.
Maybe even being so impatient and doubtful, that we lose faith in what feels right and seek a new beginning elsewhere against our better knowing. Giving off the impression to care about others while only caring for oneself, making a purely mental decision, that leads to jumping ship out of impatience and destabilizing those who thought we cared and who trusted us.
Productive: Getting to one's purpose with the assistance of others. Recognizing the right things to do and the right people to team up with through the help of others. Provoking purposeful struggle between others through competition, productive comparison, or when we realign ourselves to someone who feels authentic. Playing our cards well while we wait and not being overly shy and timid in negotiation. For example, stating what we can have elsewhere if the offer or proposal isn't what we deserve (if that is true and a real fall back option). It might also be the empowerment of others to seek out an open dialogue, or even to go for an overdue argument, which they might have been putting off out of a fear of conflict. Yet, clearly recognizing and acknowledging where purpose can be found and where it can't. Sticking to what is purposeful. Being able to discern between truth and mind-chatter. Being able to recognize and avoid what would be overly hasty and inauthentic to do.
Next solar week will be about repetitive rationalizing that can lead to sudden realization.
