Edmund Dulac - The Bird of Shadow and the Sunbird
Last solar week brought universal love, love of the body, a stellium of ignorance and bullshit and a nodal shift that will last for 4 months. The nodes changed gates and will bring out love of extremes and emancipation, but also hatred and extremism. They can bring big fat humbling crises, that ideally help us to transition further away from hatred and unhealthy extremes towards healthy extremes.
Last week here in Germany, an aggressive extremist group (citizens of the Reich, racists and anti-semites) was prohibited for the first time (Yes, I have recently started to at least watch the news). There has always been the saying that the state is blind on the right eye (which means that the state tolerates right-wing extremism). Funnily, the right eye is also associated with the gate of this new moon. Now they seem to take action, but at the same time they could drive those people into the underground (which has been a theme of the solar eclipse in December). Now the state and law enforcement start to act, but it is very possible, that this action won't stay without response from the extremist group that was prohibited and that refuses to accept the German state as a rightful state, although they live in it.
Apparently these groups have been waiting for a crisis and case of disaster to gain more control and power. That kind of crisis might be here now. Whether they'll use it or not – let's wait and see. But with Corona and the difficult economic climate the crisis situation and huge limitations are not only in the transits, but also in people's tangible reality. Extremism will be in the transits for the coming 4 months.
This week can potentially be very argumentative. It brings “know it all” energy and mindsets such as: “my opinion counts as the only one and yours is worth nothing”.
At the same time, people might say a lot of things and then not live up to them. Hypocrisy and double standards.
Are we being dictatorial and expect others to agree and to submit; or can we stand tall on our own and just do our thing in the hopes that it will be recognized and of value to others?
This week brings the energy of opinions and correction. It can bring the fear of false authorities and of having our opinions and world views challenged. This can make people overly fixed on their views and on how they think their company, their family, their local club, their country or humanity as a whole should be organized.
In an environment that is not aware, we are going to have everyone's opinion of what's wrong with us being shoved down our throat. Don't take it personal, people don't know what they are doing.
In a life environment that is self-aware, this week can bring progressive communication, constructive organization and real progress.
Conflicts might either be deepened or resolved, doubt might be overcome and the path might become clearer.
This week is about finding the courage and initiative to express ourselves uniquely and authentically, even if it looks extreme to others, and to stand out of the crowd. At the same time the energies let us explore where our mental rigidity and a fear of losing face might keep us from having productive and harmonious relationships with others. Following through with what truly calls us and expressing our individuality does not have to happen at the cost of our relationships. This is a week to find acceptance and tolerance.
There is no need to be right and to prove that we are right. It is enough to be uniquely ourselves.
This is also a week and general time of finding humor in difficult times: clowning around and behaving odd can make people relax for a minute and think of something different than their tricky situation or the heated arguments that they have locked jaws in. Clowning around and deliberately behaving hypocritical for demonstration purpose and comedy can lead people to losen up and laugh about themselves. This is something that we might see more and more during this time. It can be a healthy way of dealing with crisis and difficult situations.

A game-change can come through the understanding that the best route is not necessarily the most interesting one, which can be very relevant in times of Corona where many are advised or forced to stay inside instead of meeting up with friends or going to the city. Collective distance might help in preparing us to meet the challenges at the end of the road – avoiding an overloaded healthcare system. Taking the best route instead of the most interesting is also relevant when it comes to building a sustainable business, which many now have the time to do. It is especially relevant when it comes to the general approach to answers: researching information might not be the most exciting thing to do, but then at least we can be more sure what information to trust and what information to share... Especially in regards to last week's stellium of bullshit and ignorance, where many people spread a lot of shallow misinformation.
The more social responsibility someone has, the more important it is that the answers they have are thorough. Investing into understanding also helps with being more in demand and building a business that can endure. A doctor that isn't well informed doesn't have as much business as a doctor who is up to date. Solid opinions and also solutions are rooted in details. A business advisor who isn't solid enough in their understanding and solutions to flexibly adapt to their client's business situation is not going to be as well in demand. A human design analyst or astrologer whose readings are based on sun signs only isn't going to be as high in demand as someone who has in-depth understanding. Gaming or watching Netflix might be more tempting and interesting, but ultimately this is not going to be what helps us to succeed. This new moon can bring up difficulties and impatience with walking the thorough and sustainable path, but also the drive to correct that, to find patience and to dig deeper.
We can be prepared for the end of the road when we take all necessary steps – and not the quick fixes that leave us without the proper training, without the proper foundation and without the capability to face the challenges that we ultimately will be facing along the way.
This new moon is about looking at the multitude of opinions without getting too stuck on one in particular, and evaluating them properly without prejudice. After evaluation and after having found a new understanding we can correct what needs to be corrected and apply our new-found understanding. But first we have to be open to leave our prejudices at the door and be open to have our own judgment reframed to take a more productive, meaningful, sustainable and safe path.
With this new moon some can be overly rigid and some can be overly tolerant. Those who are overly rigid might confuse the modesty and tolerance of others for weakness and try to run them over. Modesty and tolerance is not weakness, though, and we can be incredibly strong while being modest and tolerant, or we can even derive strength out of our modesty and tolerance, especially because the endless drama of intolerance doesn't sap our natural strength and dignity.
Yet, we can only be tolerant with those who are tolerant with us and who don't threaten us. If someone tries to force their will upon us and threatens our individual self-expression and decision-making, there is a need to abandon tolerance, to stop being peaceful and to speak a word of power. Intolerance can't be tolerated. We can't ignore the weakest point only to preserve a fake harmony, we have to tackle it for progress to happen and for truth to emerge.

Listening to our needs and staying with or turning towards those relationships, that are based on the highest values and that are truly purposeful. Finding purpose despite limitations and rewarding those who deserve it.
Finding joint Purpose and Organization through discussing things openly. Diversity ultimately must lead to Synthesis, especially when it comes to Application

Basically this means:
Don't involve those into your research whose minds aren't flexible enough to follow and complement your investigation and thought process. Don't join forces with those who aren't interested in heading down a similar path as you – you might pull each other away from the direction that is correct for each one and find many things that you could do and create, but at the same time you might make each other more inefficient because the focus is lost, that can bring you success through doing exactly what calls you instead of everything else. Some collaborations can be incredibly beneficial, others can be a total waste of time or even a hindrance.
We can have many ideas and we can look at many different viewpoints and perspectives, but when it comes to our own life and to doing something with it, we simply can't focus on everything. We can't do everything at once. If we do everything at once, nothing will get done thoroughly. Through having open discussions with each other we can find the essence that is true in our knowing, and we can find the essence that is important to focus on if we join forces and work together with others. Through talking things through we can find joint purpose.
Great Influence through Acceptance and Honesty. Having a nurturing Influence through honestly accepting and working with Limitations

The next solar week will be about tension. It will bring disservice through rigid control frenzy or service through control, organization and biting through problems.
