Giovanni Segantini - The Punishment of Lust
The last solar week was about self-love, behavior, extremes, and extremism. Jupiter conjuncted Saturn and brought leadership that is out of control, too extreme, and that can't handle limitations.
This solar week is about joyfully fueling projects, and vitality maintained through stillness.
25 December 2020 05:20 UTC: Beginning of the new solar week in gate 58 ䷹ (Capricorn) - channel of awareness (61.4 Pluto-24.2▲ Moon)
Not knowing what to focus on, what to care for, and becoming distracted with questionable stimulation and indulgences – or maintaining proper focus, discipline, and care
- 25 December 2020 07:04 UTC: Mercury in 188.8.131.52 ䷹ (Capricorn) trine Uranus in 184.108.40.206 ䷚ (Taurus)
26 December 2020 07:37 UTC: Sun in 220.127.116.11 ䷹ (Capricorn) square Chiron in 18.104.22.168 ䷐ (Aries)
28 December 2020 03:25 UTC: Sun in 22.214.171.124 ䷹ (Capricorn) trine Uranus in 126.96.36.199 ䷚ (Taurus)
Perverse, decadent, or questionable stimulation can interfere with purpose and sap vitality. If you overate on cookies this holiday although you didn't want to, don't blame yourself, the transits make it INCREDIBLY easy and extremely tempting... no joke, I'm serious, there are at least 3 planets pointing to it. I'm not saying that you should not try to meet your resolutions if it is important to you, but in case it didn't work out, know that the transits sort of encouraged it.
On the other hand, rigid self-restraint can lead to a good focus and self-defense.
Not only can this transit bring questionable indulgence, it can also bring up discussions or investigations on really uncommon subjects together with other people.
Around Christmas, there tends to be this kind of Mercury-transits that either bring perversion and perverse discussions, or freakishness and discussions about the most absurd things, or about how much of an oddball a certain family member is. That's Christmas. What to do.
Last year's Christmas when there was a similar transit, my brother, who always thought Human Design was a bit woo-woo when I talked about it with my mum, suddenly looked at me with a pretty freaky stare and asked me out of nowhere to remind him of this thing about aura types. He said a switch had just turned within him, and suddenly he felt it makes sense, and he asked me to explain it to him again.
Jupiter enters gate 41 and brings us a new experiential 11-year-cycle of FOCUSED expansion and growth
- 28 December 2020 13:12 UTC: Jupiter enters gate 41, the main genetic start codon in humans // 4/6 Cross of Service with a 188.8.131.52 Sun.
… but it might take a few days to truly feel the shift and the next days might rather bring a confusing transition: While Jupiter has already moved into gate 41, Saturn remains in gate 60.6 and will move into gate 41 on the 4th of January.
Soon after Jupiter moved into gate 41, Mars moves into gate 3 and the channel of mutation (60-3) will be activated for the next days until Saturn leaves gate 60.
Jupiter brings fantasies and the pressure to start a cycle, but what you start, and whether you want to start something at all is another story! This can bring great pressure, and it can be very tempting to act on it without any focus just for the sake of doing something after such a long time of feeling restrained. This kind of energy is best used if you focus all the pressure that it brings onto your biggest dream and onto what you want and need out of life. Proper focus is everything with this cycle (58.4 Sun, 61.4^ Pluto), which is representative of gate 41 itself. Without focus, the potential of this cycle is going to be wasted, and we might end up with a multitude of confusing applications, experiences, and other things that do not add up and that are not fulfilling in the long run.
The planet of expansion (Jupiter) enters the gate of decrease (41), which might sound contradictory at first, and maybe it is. This might not bring immediate manifested expansion, but it will lay the foundation for it and it will shift our experience through shifting the energy that permeates us daily. We might experience a kind of gold rush attitude or spirit of departure (a departure to new horizons). Our dreams and fantasies of what we want to experience or what we can accomplish will become a focus, rather than the restrictions and limitations of the past months with Jupiter and Saturn in gate 60.
At the same time, focus and limitations might still be necessary and will be helpful. I think it will be exceedingly difficult for many people to cut back on their pressure for external activity and to channel it into something productive and into their life dream instead of into distractions. Dreaming along isn't enough, it is also important to not lose momentum when a change for good is in sight.
For example, in many places there are restrictions for New Year's Eve. The New Year's Eve lies exactly in between the transition from limitation (60) to the pressure to start a new cycle (41). On New Year's Eve, Jupiter is already in gate 41, but Saturn is still in gate 60. Jupiter shouts YES YES YES, Saturn pulls back: NOOO. Tricky business.

Full Moon of imagined peacefulness through self-delusion - or real peace, tranquility, harmonic stillness, absence of pressure, and a peaceful impact

It could bring the clearing up of misunderstandings, and at the same time the necessity to learn the lessons of the past, and to not delude ourself over the past, so that we do not get dragged back into further trouble, difficulty, or even loss of identity.
There also might be the temptation to rationalize and make excuses for falling back into addictions and losing oneself in them and in a temporary induced state of stillness. Ultimately, even if we relapse, experiencing it shows us and reminds us why it was not healthy for us, so that we can outgrow addictions and unhealthy patterns. This can be a full moon of examining our patterns and habits in stillness. It is a full moon of sitting in stillness and evaluating what is worth fighting for.
Learning a lesson about relationship delusion (self-delusion, deluding others, and being deluded). Refraining from taking action if we already know that it will not work (trust yourself), or having learned a lesson of social considerateness and being able to anticipate a future that might work

This is a time of potential reconsideration and reconciliation, and forgetting past blunders and conflicts if errors can be admitted. This can be a time of leaving past strife behind and starting anew. Upon such reconciliation, it is important to not ignore your bad instinct and gut feeling, but to appreciate it as a potential warning sign to protect you. Some things are not meant to work out. Other things are meant to be, just feel right, and you look forward to them with joyful anticipation. Trust yourself in your knowing.
Next solar week will be about tension, individualism, and fighting for purpose.
