Alfons Mucha - The Introduction of the Slavonic Liturgy
The last solar week was about rationality or irrationality. It was about sudden realization and choosing the path of knowing.
Quarter of Civilization
This solar week is about where we are heading and about receptivity. It is about creative implementation that leads to our path unfolding and getting clearer. It is about being receptive to our unique and higher direction in life as individuals. This week imprints us with the direction for 2020 and leads us into the yearly quarter of civilization and manifestation. The wheel of fortune has turned. We have left the quarter of mind and initiation and entered the next quarter with a vision to be put into form. This week is about that vision and about receptivity, it is the pure feminine archetypal energy.
The last few weeks might have brought changes, that we first had to reorient ourselves in. For some it might have been an exciting progress, even when temporary difficulties were woven in, but for many, many people it might have felt slow or even stagnant, confused and depressed. Others might have felt annoyed by other people who tried to interfere with them, who crossed their boundaries, who tried to tell them what to do or who sapped their energy and resources (→ see the new moon of the unexpected, wild self-sufficiency and sturdy defense of boundaries). This solar week might lift the confusion. Where are we heading and how? That question might become clearer, especially with the full moon on the cross of defiance by the end of this solar week.

Problematic: being so concerned about social style, rules and norms, that we don't dare to speak up and defend ourselves when our boundaries are being crossed.
We can't allow people to run us over. When they interfere with us and try to throw sticks between our legs, self-defense is always legitimate! A strong and determined reaction (no confused drama, but silent force) might be more successful than a timid one, so that they recognize that we are not someone to be messed with. If we tolerate interference, people will just keep on going.
Productive: changing our behavior when needed and forcefully fending off hostile people, who interfere with us, even if usually we might be the most peaceful person.
Often, seeking a creative outlet for our feelings can help us to deal with them and to not sink into despair, oftentimes through service to others. We are not in control of our feelings, but we can control where we put and direct them, to find greater independence from the circumstances and thus more peace.
The potential for depression due to having to apply self-restraint in the face of limitation is in the transits. If you are having a project or a piece of art that you are working on, it can be much easier to deal with, not only because it distracts from the void, but also because of the beauty of creation and/or working towards something. Having something purposeful to do redirects our focus away from the limitation.
This is a time to go within for a bit of self-discovery and to seek what really brings us joy, satisfaction or a feeling of success or purpose if we do it. This week and full moon, we find our path through creative implementation.
Next solar week will be about structuring, efficiency, breakthrough and assimilation.
