The previous solar week was about rejecting interference and being of service through discipline, control, management and organization, problem solving, and deep solutions. On the problematic side it was about tyrants and obsessive control to the point of interfering with other people's freedom and boundaries.
This solar week is about dealing with shock by trusting our intuition and adapting in the present moment in case of unexpected shocks and challenges. It brings competitive energy, the drive to be first, and a possibility for real recklessness, all of which is possibly fueled by a fear of the future. Chiron moves into gate 21 and brings challenges with interference and boundary violation.
We are already past more than half of the quarter of initiation. The next weeks will be about surviving the circumstances, doing some cleanup-work, and finding our way out of the old into the new: We come to a new way of thinking, which in effect can guide us into a direction that leads to greater harmony. Then, in approximately 1 month, the quarter of civilization will begin.
4 April 2021 16:37 UTC: Beginning of the new solar week in gate 51▽ ䷲ (Aries) – active channels of the moment: the channel of synthesis (22.214.171.124▽ Saturn-126.96.36.199▽ Jupiter) & channel of initiation (188.8.131.52▽ Sun&184.108.40.206▲ Venus-220.127.116.11 Mercury)
Strife. Rejection, exclusion, aggression, and adapting to the shock, quite possibly resulting in withdrawal as the only thing that makes sense to do.

Chiron enters gate 21 (conjunct Mercury in 21.1▲): Take no shit. Healing through autonomy and other people's big heart, or wounding through interference. Understanding and communicating clear boundaries, and absolutely being willing to enforce them when necessary – or disempowerment, damage, and pain inflicted through having weak boundaries and having one's big heart exploited by others, or through having things forced upon us.

Chiron in gate 21 is a long-lasting transit, we will deal with this energy for years to come.
Last week, we already might have seen what this energy can bring. When people are well-aligned and mature it can bring great service, but it can also bring wounding through misplaced control and interference. Julian Assange has his Chiron in this gate, and due to underestimating his enemies, he was trapped in the Ecuadorian embassy in London for years while his space was infiltrated and surveilled.
With Chiron, the detrimental side can be highlighted and emphasized to teach us a lesson, so that in the long run we find more into our power and take back the control that we might have been giving away too freely or recklessly. These difficulties can push us to transmute the detrimental frequencies, and to move toward a life that honors us and a life environment that respects us. Nonetheless, even if there is no damage inflicted and if there is no enforced outside control to the point of mental torture such as in the case of Assange, it still can be extremely annoying to always have to deal with people trying to get in the way because they feel entitled to do so for whatever weird reasons. Yet, that's the energy of the coming years.
Last week, I stumbled upon this hilarious 47.4-wisdom gem, the title is clickbait and not exactly the content of this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZHT7Sm3CdjE
The 47.4 is about external oppression, often being oppressed by other people's problems that they refuse to be dealing with themself (if they faced it themself and resolved it, there would be no oppression). The guy in the video is speaking from his 47.4 south node perspective among others, but what he is saying also applies perfectly to Chiron in gate 21, which is about interference from others, fending off interference to ensure manifestation, and biting through problems to ensure manifestation. Especially the coconut-island-story in the video, even without the hoarding- and greed-component, is the typical story with gate 21 that I'm seeing with 21-people over and over again: They build something with great discipline and work harder than everyone else in the company. They bring structure, organization, practicality, and solve all kinds of problems for the benefit of everyone involved, and then envious people from below who don't invest in themself sustainably, or an entitled 45 from above, a narcissistic boss, come along and try to claim it, or the moochy family steals the credit card. If there are no boss and no co-workers, but if the 21-person is an independent business, people from outside come and try to hop onto the boat that has already been build and is already sailing somewhere good toward manifestation, and some of them will not know their place and will be getting in the way of manifestation while trying to profit of what they didn't even build and earn.
Short summary from the video in regard to Chiron in 21: "The moral of this story is: other people are literally your problem, because when other people have a problem they will make it your problem." "If you are on an island with 5 other people, and if these people are having a bad time and you are having a great time, you are about to have a bad time. That's how people work."
Chiron in gate 21 will also bring a lot of wounding through severe measures of control, bad organization, and bad management that has devastating effects.
For example, many of the global and different local COVID-19 measures have not been very well coordinated and far-sighted, and with Chiron in gate 21 we will either see the tangible effect onto manifestation, businesses, companies, and cooperations, or/and we will see further measures that challenge and destroy companies and cooperations at their very core. It is a potential culprit to get so hung up on things that went wrong, so that we stop to evolve and don't focus on finding ways to adapt. Flexible adaptation will be a key. It can be the downfall if we just keep on heading into the old direction without even considering if it has a future or not.
On the good side, the coming years bring healing and self-empowerment through a firm, determined, and zero-tolerance „don't mess with me“-approach. We recognize that learning never ends and neither does the path through life with all its challenges. We learn from mistakes we make, adapt accordingly, and are willing to harvest or to distribute rejection when it is necessary to defend our ground.
We truly start to understand interference and the need for being wild and untamed, but we also understand what it means to be of disservice and what it means to truly be of service. In connection to the right people who are healing rather than a problem and a drain, who are big-hearted rather than coldly interfering with us, the coming years will be about being helped and helping others by biting through problems and taking control of things where before there has been chaos. Healing can happen through good organization, structure, and thoughtful problem solving.
I've said it before in 2019 when I first talked about Chiron in gate 21: if you have been postponing to take care of heart problems, then this might not be the best time to continue to neglect it. This is a good time to reduce unnecessary stress and demands, and to evaluate what puts too much pressure and burden on us and to let that thing go. This will be a good time to evaluate where we have been doing things the hard way, and whether there is a way of less resistance.
A challenging lesson in humility. Reintegration only if mature and not inferior. Reconsideration after having grown mature enough to admit that one's prior rejection was a mistake, and doing everything to be included. Accepting rejection as part of the process, exercising self-restraint, and accepting that sacrifice in order to reach a larger potential - or taking it personal, bitching about it, and turning from seemingly understanding to condescending upon reaping a "no".
- 9 April 2021 19:17 UTC: Mars in 188.8.131.52 (Gemini) square Neptune in 184.108.40.206 (Pisces)

This one can result in rejection and separation. If it's not the right thing, it's not the right thing. Sometimes things can't be fixed and should not be fixed because they are the wrong thing to begin with. Rejection can be protection against a life time of being in a relationship or bargain that is fake or false, not fully committed, and not fully transparent, where we otherwise might be living a lie. Sometimes there is no potential for correction in the particular moment, and we need to focus on ourself and take care of our own business before the right possibility for us opens up at a later point. Sometimes, the situation might demand patience and proof of one's trustworthiness, patience with one's inner authority, or patience with outside circumstances, and until then we might be told a “no”. Sometimes, this also might be about reconsidering with one person and separating from the other. But mostly, how I read this, is to have a final talk and to put it to the side, either for now or forever.
One possible culprit that comes with this transit is to be way too focused on harmony. With this transit, a certain pragmatism might be needed in order to forcefully reject interference and to separate from those who try to mess with us (messing with us can also come in the form of an apology, sometimes and with some people it simply does not work and being nice and accommodating would be at our own detriment and invite further interference). If you want to sever energetic ties, this can be a supportive energy to do it.
The next solar week will be 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.
