Briton Riviere - Saint George and the Dragon
The previous solar week was about dealing with shock by trusting our intuition and adapting in the present moment in case of unexpected shocks and challenges. It brought competitive energy, the drive to be first, and a possibility for real recklessness, all of which was possibly fueled by a fear of the future.
This solar week is about inner growth and maturation, the closing of cycles, finishing things in order to make room for what's to come next, and temporarily increasing our effort or workload if something that has potential demands us to do so.

The challenged ego, and service through making a sacrifice. What's the right sacrifice for us to make, and what would be the wrong sacrifice to make that invites other people's interference and leads to strain?

Understanding the sacrifice that we have to make, or understanding the sacrifice that other people or fate might force us to make. Either feeling powerless in the face of fate and feeling powerless when other people rob us of our freedom and autonomy - or rejecting what keeps us powerless, and feeling empowered by making only the right sacrifice.
Problematic: Taking rejection personal might lead to a loss of self-worth, a feeling of powerlessness, drowning it in addictions, and a total lack of will for the material path and for making money. That might lead to a total stop of progress and to reclusiveness.
Productive: Having the humility and composure to accept rejection, to not take it personal, and going into a healthy withdrawal in order to protect ourself, to invest in ourself, and to go about our own business. Some things we can't control, they just happen. Maturing through experience, through rejection, and through seeing what does not work, and developing a healthy sense of who we are and where we are (not) going.
What's the right sacrifice for us to make, and what would be the wrong sacrifice to make that invites other people's interference and leads to strain? Do we make a sacrifice that is expected of us but that makes us feel powerless and half-dead? Or do we reject such sacrifices, unjustified demands, and interference? Do we make a temporary sacrifice that moves us toward empowerment in the long run? Can we chose our own sacrifices, say no to the wrong one's, and make the right sacrifices from a position of power and self-governance, where we might even limit our own potential to fulfill a greater goal, but without giving away our own power and autonomy?
New moon of identification, utilizing trends and developments, exploring identity and direction, and transforming what we value and how we approach relationships. Watching out of a withdrawn state and being patient with finding a new order, and thus being able to recognize current developments, to take newly emerging opportunities once they arrive, and to ultimately find the right risk to take that aligns us to our authentic purpose and the big treasure-hunt.

This new moon is about recognizing and going with current trends and developments. Sometimes this might bring a temporary extra workload. By the end of the month, it leads up to a full moon of regeneration, renewal, and rising like a phoenix from the ashes in order to find authentic purpose in life through the right risk to take or through investing into the right thing that truly calls us.
This new moon brings situations where others might try to fix what we identify with (our direction in life, our identity, or what we are passionate about), and to bring us off track and away from what feels truly purposeful to us. They might even reject or exclude us if we are not what they want us to be, or if we don't do what they want us to do, which might lead us to struggle with our fate. Such voices can easily bring darkness and destructive insights that keep us stuck in hopelessness and pain if we do not reject such interference. But, dependent on the nature and the solidity of the insights being shared, such voices can also be very positive and constructive. They might bring inner growth, inner renewal, and huge changes in perspective.
This new moon brings the energy to undermine one set of values for another, maybe going with the times and newer developments and overthrowing outdated ways of thinking. It can lead us to recognize what no longer serves the times we are in, and what kind of thinking needs to change in order for us to develop internally and externally. This new moon might require us to have patience with finding our way into the new, with finding a new inner or outer order, and with finding our voice or a new way of expressing ourself. It might require patience with finding a new order in the relationship department. We might patiently sit through a huge transformation and recognition of what we truly value, and undergo huge changes in regard to what is important to us. Often times, this might have to do with not letting ourself be depleted and suffocated by others any longer, and the coming full moon might bring the recognition that we must protect ourself against other people using and abusing our generosity and good intention. In that regard, this could also be a moon cycle of ending a bigger cycle with someone who wanted a mum or dad rather than a partner. There might be attempts to lure us back into caring although it's not our package to carry, and the upcoming full moon by the end of the month can bring the recognition that we can't and should not care about everything and everyone under the sun. If our pace is unrealistic, the coming full moon might bring a feeling of burnout, and if our expectations are too unrealistic and unfocused, it might bring emotional havoc and drain. Vice versa, if other people have unrealistic expectations and demands, that might be a drain on them, but we can't allow that to infect us or drag us down with them. Especially if the expectations are not realistic and considerate, then it is not our cross to be nailed on, it's better to pass on it. Other people's expectations are other people's expectations, and we need to do what we need to do.
Having the discipline to maintain our principles and right action in times of change. Not giving in to inferior influences out of boredom or in order to maintain a fake harmony that then ultimately creates draining situations, but mostly staying withdrawn and only engaging with purposeful connections

Chafing against limitations upon being excluded, potentially after having lost our power and strength by having given too freely to the wrong people without receiving in return, which might even result in depression, self-hatred, or emotionally charged aggression over something that did not last – or being levelheaded, and pragmatically making the best of an uncertain situation, while caring about ourself first and nurturing others where needed and possible. The uncertain situation will resolve itself sooner or later

Pluto in gate 60 brings us one last 7-year-cycle consisting of a necessary reality check before we forever leave behind the global background frequency of delusion and false enthusiasm. In the moment when the illusion is shattered, this can be very painful. But in the long run, it can be a very necessary step to empower us, and to align us to what authentically empowers us. Only with both feet firm on the ground can we be stable and equipped for all challenges that life will bring. When we are mentally prepared and able to navigate those challenges without being swallowed by them, we can still go through life with relative ease and truly enjoy the parts of life that can be enjoyed.
The next solar week brings the possibility of sudden changes, and it continues to bring the slow emergence of a new order through finding the right values.
