The last solar week was about oppression, grace, making sense of past experiences, and transmutation.
This solar week is about emotional intimacy, sex, fertility and crisis. It brings a new moon cycle of allegiance and being open to intimacy, or of rejection of intimacy and relationships.
15 September 2020 00:18 UTC: Beginning of the new solar week in gate 6 ䷅ (Virgo) - channel of awareness (61.2 Pluto & 61.6▲ Saturn-24.3 Uranus), channel of openness (22.3 Neptune-12.3▲ North Node)
Disappearing due to relapse into addictions or other damaging patterns. Saying A, then doing B.

Irrational bridge-burning and getting stuck, or letting fears of intimacy get the best of us - or temporary retreat into aloneness to find new insights and inner renewal.
John William Waterhouse - Hypnos and Thanatos (sleep and his half-brother death)
New Moon of becoming stuck and ceasing to grow through Rejection of Intimacy, especially in Response to Conflict and feeling controlled – or Transformation through emotional Openness and Allegiance, and Transition out of an old Cycle through productive Conflict and Friction

17 September 2020 11:00 UTC: NEW MOON in 220.127.116.11 ䷅ (Virgo) opposite Neptune in 18.104.22.168 and in waxing quincunx to Mars in 3.2.3▲ and BM Lilith in 42.6.5.

The last moon cycle was about error evaluation, accepting fate or not, and having love for those close to us, or developing hate for them.
This moon cycle is about emotional openness or rejection. It is about sharing growth and nurturing others or alienating others through self-obsession. Ultimately, it is about finding a new order.
Black Moon Lilith in 42.6 conjuncts Mars in 3.2▲ while the ego center is totally open and the North Node is in the 12.3▲. This is a time of overcoming vanity, pride, self-aggrandizement and greed. It is a time of being humbled by life. Many of those affected might struggle against transition and change and would rather refuse to partake in it. The most difficult learning theme with this new moon is to open up or to stay open and to accept change and transformation. For many, it might be easier to shut down emotionally, to dissociate and reject a relationship altogether, instead of facing unpleasant feelings or unresolved childhood wounds.
Problematic: being unable to let go of what happened and rejecting change, intimacy, and control (e.g. rejecting attempts to help with addictions that are well-meant, but perceived as controlling). Refusing change and growth, clinging to old patterns and reaping an even bigger crisis. An unhealthy selfishness and refusing to share with others what has been gained.
Productive: Self-analysis, transition through crisis and confession of past mistakes without getting stuck in shame or in the blame of who did what. Nurturing each other instead of pointing fingers. Focusing on making things right rather than getting stuck in recrimination. Recognizing what is necessary for survival and sometimes total dissociation if the situation is destructive and demands it for us to survive. This can be a time where some people might go through trauma from which they automatically separate in order to survive and keep at least a certain level of sanity, and then physically work through it to get it out of the body, when the South Node is in 26.4 later this year and in 2021.

This also is a highly fertile time where unwanted pregnancies can happen very easily. While this can be an increasingly happy time for some of those who have been trying to get pregnant, it can also be a devastating time for some of those who never intended to do so. In case you are in such a situation, and you don't want to become a mother or even feel like it would ruin your life and the life of the child, know that it is your life and your body. It is your decision that matters, other people should not have a say in the course of your life and your body. In many countries, abortion is a very sensitive topic and there is a massive amount of peer pressure and social pressure to give birth to the child, but ultimately it is every woman's right to decide for herself. According to the Human Design knowledge, in the early stages of pregnancy where abortions usually are being carried out, the child's soul (what is referred to as the Personality Crystal in Human Design) has not yet entered the body. In those stages, the child is not aware. There is just flesh being built. The soul incarnates around 3 months prior to birth - pretty late in the process of pregnancy. Our upbringing, our beliefs or other people might instill a feeling of guilt in us, but there really is no good reason for that. For some people, this can be a time where it is critically important to not let conditioning overwhelm their inner knowing, because it will change the course of their life in major ways that can not be undone. You have a right to your own decision.
Worth a read:
From the Article:
"studies looking at the emotional consequences of abortion show that people are unlikely to experience mental health challenges following an abortion — except in cases when pre-abortion emotional challenges existed or when an intended pregnancy is ended due to medical concerns," (...) "Evidence shows that being denied a wanted abortion can have greater emotional and physical consequences on a person's health,"
- Dr. Gillian Dean, the senior medical director of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America
"The people who are so opposed to abortion don't care about the data," she said. "It's like climate change deniers. The data is irrelevant. But for women considering abortions to know that 95% of women didn't regret it? That's important."
- Dr. Wendy Chavkin, professor emerita at the Columbia Mailman School of Public Health
The study includes graphs that are especially interesting in regards to how social pressure can make it very difficult to stand by one's decision. Relief was the most common emotion felt by women in the study after they had their abortion - [ Emotions and decision rightness over five years following an abortion: An examination of decision difficulty and abortion stigma ]

Successful and disciplined collaboration, transmission of insight, influence and impact that establishes a new social form and opens up new horizons – often through secret and covert knowledge and relationships. Or disloyalty, one-sided breaking apart or clinging to unhealthy relationships.

Problematic: Not knowing one's place, breaking promises, ditching those who helped to achieve success, and changing sides.
Being afraid of change, of the future, and staying open to what is not healthy for us. There is great danger of not noticing or properly evaluating the twists and turns on the road, and not being able to adapt to them because intuition is being ignored and overrun by emotions. Especially if a person or group of people abuses our trust or uses us selfishly, if we are loyal, but they are not, it can be very challenging to recognize that, to change our direction and to take appropriate action in stopping to be open to them.
Productive: withdrawing from negative influences and all negative relationships and social encounters. Resisting irrational actions and temptations with rigorous discipline and caution. Not letting oneself be exploited.
Madness over failed relationships and over immature impulsiveness. Clinging to relationships maybe despite having been the one to ditch them (saying A then doing B), and having a really difficult time with letting people go in peace

Next solar week will be about success or a lack of success and unconditional love.
