Last solar week brought yearning, a fear of fate and the urge to commit.
This solar week is about abundance, moodiness, emoting and breaking barriers. Often but not necessarily these are barries that are in the way to intimacy.
This week is about finding the spirit through evolving our perception and perspective. It brings emotional moodiness, beware of drama. This or that, or maybe that over there? I'm feeling passionate, I'm feeling down. Why did I even book a table in my favorite sushi restaurant, I'm rather in the mood for pizza now. I'm feeling social, I'm feeling anti-social. I'm in love with them, I'm not in love with them. I felt like moving to Bali, but wait, maybe Hawaii would be much nicer. It also brings the fear of feeling empty and having no one to love and nothing to feel (for).

There is a huge Mars aspect this week, which strengthens the energy of mutation and evolving our perspective.
Mercury transits the gate of doubt and then the gate of family. Doubt might not necessarily be beneficial when the main energy of the week is fickleness and moodiness and when the goal is to avoid both purely mental, as well as emotionally impulsive and totally headless decisions. A fear of emptiness and the big boredom might not be very helpful in avoiding rash mental decisions, either, especially in regards to intimacy and starting something with the next random person just to feel in love and alive. Sometimes, fear can be of help to mobilize the energy and courage to drive us forward – as long as it doesn't drive us into the wrong direction. It might be good to keep in mind the possiblity for intense mood swings so that we don't act on things that go against how we usually feel. Things that we later regret. Vice versa, there can also be doubt or decisions that always were very clear to us and that probably still will be clear to us when the particular mood has passed. When we are centered in ourselves and self-observant, it can bring about a very exalted mental process and insights.
19 February 2020 07:55 UTC: Beginning of the new solar week in gate 55 ䷶ (Pisces)
Blocked with Disgrace and Distrust - or Graceful Acceptance, Trust, Organization through authentic Action for something Greater and helping those to rise up where it is mutual and correct to help
- 20 February 2020 15:56 UTC: Jupiter in 22.214.171.124 ䷵ (Capricorn) sextile Neptune in 126.96.36.199 ䷕ (Pisces)
This is a slower moving and longer lasting transit. The energy has been trickling in for a while and it will stay for longer than the usual transits before it fizzles out.
Problematic: Getting above oneself, making unjustified demands and blocking others or being blocked. Breaking of the spirit through inappropriate destabilizing action and false innocence. Ghosting and the silent treatment. Not being recognized and maybe even blamed or belittled. Potential antisocial personality disorder-transit, that can make it very easy to delude and exploit people - beware. Delusion, gullibility and tolerating too much. Those people who are not open to collaboration and don't make an effort to find real resolution might not be the right people anyway.
Trying to be included in situations where we don't belong. Demanding more than is healthy and that appertains to us – and being blocked. Behaving disgracefully in trying to get unblocked and gain official status. Claiming a place that isn't our's, that we aren't equipped for or that we simply don't belong, maybe despite better knowing because our eyes were bigger than our belly, or because of emotional involvement. Emotions can be delusory, what might feel good or even heavenly might not be in our best interest, it might not be healthy and safe, especially if it involves people who are living in a very low frequency and don't live themselves and their potential.
Being blamed and humiliated for trying to claim that place. Especially when others don't have the confidence as we do and feel the need to augment themselves by pushing others down, this can lead to abuse on the side of those who are blocked and try to be included in very distasteful ways. It can also lead to abuse and one-sided exploitation from those who block others – be it a narc boss or a narc ex. Especially when you see those kind of people for who they are, know what is behind their mask and don't silently tolerate it but speak up, you become the enemy on their playing field. As you still try to sort things out they can get really mean, bullyish and simply abusive. Gossip, false information and intrigues are a potential danger under these transits.
So there are potentially two parties – one who is blocked and one who blocks. Both of them can behave either gracefully and listen to each other in order to solve the issue, or they can behave disgracefully.
I don't want to give the impression that blocking someone is necessarily a bad thing. Sometimes it is exactly what is needed. We can also block others acting from integrity and acting on a necessity. When someone wants your executive chair although they would not do it better, would not be of benefit to the company and have no sort of legitimization, it might be very necessary to put them in their place. In the worst case scenario, all parties deliver a mud fight of very low frequency. Total chaos, defiance and power struggle.
In love it might be easy to forget your own needs if you have a tendency to do that. If people are existing in the lowest frequencies, under these transits they might block others and then suck them energetically empty. They might sense a power rush over the emotional control they have over others and might feast over their power of blocking others and taming them or winning over them. That's the worst case and not a general occurrence, but at the same time it is not a potential to be neglected and not a situation to be tolerated once it occurs. You deserve to be treated with equal appreciation, respect and investedness from a place of integrity and authenticity! Don't tolerate such kind of abuse and garbage!
When both parties work together there might still be blockages and chaos, often job-related, but there is no unnecessary defiance and an effort is made to find the proper approach and direction. Those are the relationships to invest in.
Productive: establishing trust and working things out through listening to each other. Being able to enjoy a subordinate position and not needing formal status, recognition or being the boss. Knowing our place and helping each other to succeed. Recognizing who we successfully can work with, who we can help to succeed and who can help us in return. Doing the right people a favour. Ambitiously working towards something great, often pursuing it together with others. Succeeding through secret relationships. (Again, these are the transits, this is not what might be right for everyone on an individual level)
Actions speak louder than words. Apathetic stuckness or embracing change and moving towards authentic embodiment
- 21 February 2020 09:09 UTC: Mars in 10.6.3.5 ䷉ (Capricorn) trine Uranus in 188.8.131.52 ䷚ (Taurus)
21 February 2020 13:16 UTC: Mars in 10.6.4.4 ䷉ (Capricorn) square Chiron in 184.108.40.206 ䷘ (Aries)
Problematic: Avoiding to turn inwards and to sit with our pain and shadows. We might avoid change even though we talk about it, so we might stay stuck in the old ways and feel stagnant. We might even take our own disempowerment out on others, letting others pay the price of our own failures and destabilize them. Saying that we care, but we don't, which ultimately is demonstrated and coming to light through our actions. Double standards and being two-faced. Affirming something and then doing the opposite, doing very destabilizing things and depleting the other person without taking responsibility. Disregarding other people's needs and staying stuck in a habit to live at their expense without taking any responsibility.
Ideally though, this is a transit about finding the proper amount of responsibility to take – and to behave accordingly:
Productive: Living by one's words, true caring from authenticity and shedding inauthentic behavior, even if that behavior is socially encouraged. Finding behavior that is authentically caring and not fake, thus finding self-acceptance and self-love. Breaking free, finding integrity and authentic nurturing. Now me. Stepping aside into self-sufficiency and some greater kind of game plan.
This can go several ways: If we are too agreeable we might have agreed to things that are not right for us, push against resistance and finally admit to ourselves that we can't do it, and that we need to let it be, even if it disappoints people. We might recognize that we can only give so much and become self-sufficient and emancipated. People might complain when they think they have a right to access us and our energy, but ultimately no one has the right and ownership over someone else's time and energy. It can only be given freely. On the productive side of this transit, the energy pushes us to break free from other people's unjustified demands.
Abundant nurturance and the right principles – or not knowing the limits and giving or taking way too much
- 22 February 2020 14:12 UTC: Sun in 220.127.116.11 ䷶ (Pisces) sextile Uranus in 18.104.22.168 ䷚ (Taurus)
Problematic: Not being emotionally aware and knowing no restraint. Potentially this will be awareness about how much we have to give, and to whom. Giving too much, way more than we actually have, or insensitively taking way too much and taking advantage.
Productive: Having or finding emotional balance and the proper principles that lead to self-sufficiency, abundance and being able to truly nurture others and be nurtured in return (most likely in that order).
Arthur Hacker - The Annunciation
Either way: what goes around comes back around, and this is a time where the boomerang might be flying back at us, for us to either catch it or to be hit hard. It is also an extremely ambitious time of swift transformation and seeding the karma that we want to reap, through patiently working with the limitations and restraints that we are facing:
New Moon with Lilith conjunct Chiron and Venus square Jupiter.
Being and staying conditioned by being too emotionally open, getting overindulgent and sloppy (put up and shut up), accepting half-baked advice that doesn't help with the limitation and shocks we might be facing and having difficulty in dealing with those challenges – or total emancipation, outgrowing the old or false Self and being inventive in times of limitation, shock and challenge
- 23 February 2020 15:31 UTC: NEW MOON in 22.214.171.124▽ ䷶ (Pisces)
Black Moon Lilith of the previous Full Moon in 25.4.3▲ (Aries)
Black Moon Lilith of THIS New Moon in 25.6.1 (Aries) conjunct Chiron in 126.96.36.199
Black Moon Lilith of the upcoming Full Moon in 17.1.6 (Aries)
23 February 2020 16:58 UTC: Venus in 188.8.131.52 ䷲ (Aries) square Jupiter in 184.108.40.206 ䷵ (Capricorn)
Problematic: Being conditioned by other people's shitty advice and suggestions, blindly trusting authorities and giving our own authority away. Trying to get by with minimum effort when it is obvious that the issue is a bit bigger in size and needs a more thorough approach. Trusting the old half-baked solutions and quick fixes that are inefficient, which might result in a lot of sloppy and confusing applications out of which none truly works and destabilizes us in times of shock. Not trusting in our body wisdom and settling for less. Settling for less than we deserve and being destabilized when it blows up in our face. Letting ourselves be conditioned away from our inner knowing and accepting the wrong advice from a purely mental and logical perspective. Most likely, this will be totally ignorant advice based on a lack of up-to-date education, based on superficial low-effort wannabe-quick-fixes, falseness or even self-serving motives. Such advice is unlikely to help us transform and to tackle a challenging situation in the best or most thorough way possible. We don't have to make things more complicated as they are, but when they are really complicated or tough, a simple plaster and settling for less won't help either.
Productive: Farting on what other people tell us to do (unless it is really helpful advice) and not listening to false advice. Trusting our body wisdom when it screams NOOOOOO, but when mental reasoning tries to overpower it → [Find out your aura type and inner authority here]. Standing by our truth and not settling for less, applying our own good discernment about other people's advice and transforming advice innovatively. Taking what resonates and leaving the rest. Finding our own right approach to the problems and challenges that we might be facing.
Inventiveness in times of shock and challenge and the immense drive to succeed. Not getting sloppy and using all resources that we have at hand – where it makes sense. Being absolutely driven to make the best of what we have got and to make the best of our situation, even if we haven't got a lot or if the situation is difficult. Achieving maximum potential and transformation with a restrictive situation, when facing disaster or an unexpected shock.
The next week is about community (family and friendship), (dis)loyalty and bargains.
