Arthur Rackham - Alice In Wonderland
Last solar week was about social considerateness and overcoming self-oppression. This solar week is a week of conflict, crisis and growth.
On a collective level this is about crisis management. This week is connected to the eclipse in December under which Covid-19 emerged and to which Covid-19 is tied to. This week and particularly the end of this week illuminates the situation and shines light on the darkness - whatever that practically means, I don't know. Neither did I know about the new corona virus when I mentioned "crisis" and "contagion" in the eclipse report that came with the general 2020 forecast. It is never clear how exactly things will unfold and I am limited in my understanding since I am human and not god. You never truly know.
So what this week brings is unclear, but it massively impacts the eclipse energies and thus, likely, corona. It could simply mean that the scope of the issue or the path to navigate the crisis becomes clear. It could mean that this is the peak of the current crisis (summer will serve us a new eclipse). It could mean that deficiencies, inexperience and inadequacies of our systems are openly exposed through difficulties with crisis management. It could mean whatever else fits the description.
On an individual level, this week might bring a desire for intimacy and the desire to have a new experience. It also brings the fear of intimacy and the fear of being inadequate and too inexperienced for dealing with the sexual aspects and all interpersonal difficulties. These are fears and blockages that might be further outgrown this week.

Taming one's mouth and instead being resourceful and supportive. What goes around comes around: abundance or a lesson in humility
- 14 March 2020 03:53 UTC: Chiron in 18.104.22.168 ䷐ (Aries) square North Node in 22.214.171.124 ䷳ (Cancer)
14 March 2020 10:31 UTC: Mars in 126.96.36.199 ䷵ (Capricorn) sextile Neptune in 188.8.131.52 ䷕ (Pisces)
14 March 2020 16:46 UTC: Sun in 184.108.40.206 ䷣ (Pisces) sextile Pluto in 220.127.116.11 ䷼ (Capricorn)
Problematic: Being insensitive and a bulldozer in conflicts, arguments and discussion. Being religious about our opinions. Going on a crusade to convince people that we are right. Invalidating every viewpoint that deviates from ours. All of that results in blowing up the crisis bigger that it would have to be.
Feeling so stuck in a situation, that we become depressed. Being so rigid, that we lose our flexibility and do not see the opportunities when they arrive. People might refuse to change and adapt and rant about how everything was better back then. They might go back to irrational thinking patterns because they get away with it. Instead of actually doing something and making the best of their situation, they might resent others over their own stuckness and start beef - although they don't do anything for themselves to get unstuck.
Productive: Recognizing that there are many possible angles and approaches to investigate an issue and finding joy in that diversity. Leaving behind old mindsets that don't do us justice.
Moving towards stillness and more careful verbal expression and speech through the recognition that there are many ways to look at things and to approach life. Not all viewpoints and opinions are of benefit in every situation. Sometimes it is better to not say anything, or to think about how we say it before we actually say it. This is about healing and being healed through considering the other person's perspective and seeing their viewpoint as valid, even in those situations where we don't think it makes a whole lot of sense. It is about considering how we voice our opinion before we voice it.
Being resourceful in times of limitation and recognizing opportunities for change when they arrive instead of complaining that the state or other people should fix our situation. What you put in, you get out, and this is a time where it might show clearly. Either we try to make the best of our situation and work within limitations, or we don't and stay stuck. God won't save anyone, but the gods might help those who help themselves and seize the opportunities they have instead of placing all of their own responsibility onto others.
This is where “the last shall be the first” comes in – the last are already very capable of dealing with limitations because they always had to. When it comes to mindset and basic skill sets that ensures independent survival (repair work, agriculture and generally working with very little and putting EVERYTHING to use inventively) they are much better equipped for this time than those who never had to be truly resourceful and never had to deal with real difficulties.
However, this is a time of karmic backlash or reward, and often this backlash can be social. We might be faced with our own mental rigidity when others behave rigid towards us and expect us to comply and agree. This can be a great opportunity to recognize and transform such rigidness and judgments. It can bring a growth crisis that teaches us compassion and that truly helps us to consider other people's viewpoints.

All in all, these current energies are quite pleasant energies – if you can accept limitation and temporary stagnation. There is a whole lot of bickering and know-it-all, there is a lot of limitation and shortage to deal with, but at the same time the collective is coming to grips with what is necessary to conserve. E.g. the European Union announced plans for drafting new laws that disencourage the throwaway mentality by going back to making it cheaper to repair products than to simply buy new ones. For example, they want to force manufacturers to make devices repairable, and ban the destruction of returned but new products. This could possibly be a return of quality over quantity, although it doesn't have to turn out that way – there are always loopholes and the unexpected.
Most, but not all, of the limitation we are now facing has been there before, but ignored, such as the general limits of the earth (environmental issues), such as global dependencies created through outsourcing (being more present through the corona crisis), such as increasing numbers of refugees and migrants and a general weakness in collective organization. The recent events don't create those issues, they only bring them to light collectively and on a broader scale, as a part of the huge structural resets we are experiencing. ->[Pluto-South Node in April 2019] [to a lesser degree Pluto-Saturn in January 2020].
The thematics of limitation and conservation will be with us and even strengthen throughout the next years until 2027.
However, currently it might be easy to see all the negative things and restrictions, especially for those who aren't used to it and who didn't see those restrictions before, or didn't take them seriously. But on the positive side of things, limitations teach us to become less naive and careless with what we have, which obviously is very necessary. We can't change the situation we are in, at least not immediately with a snap of a finger, but we can make the best of it. It all depends on what we make of the situation. What I also see is that there currently is little energy in the transit field that strengthens abusive patterns. There is bickering and blame over taking things personally and seeing only one's own opinion, but there is little that is openly violent. It really could be worse.
This week and the next can be a time of stillness and joy. Soon, it might become a bit more weird, heated and problematic. After this week, we have one more peaceful and calm week to go and then the nodes shift. Then we will be experiencing extremes. Extreme haircuts, behavior or lifestyles on a personal level. Extreme organizational and structural measures to be taken on a collective level, sometimes to meet extreme situations with extreme solutions, sometimes out of nowhere, without any reason or with a deeply subjective reason (such as genocide in the extreme case). Extremism, fundamentalism, and everything that is based on extreme and rigid opinions will be a theme. Misanthropy and the hatred of humanity and its diversity will be a big theme that is likely to be very present after the coming week. Right now, this is a good moment to take a pause for breath and to love life and humanity before some bigger “what the fuck???”-moments might happen to emerge.
The next week is about universal love.
