Adolf Hiremy-Hirschl - Der einzige Zeuge (The only witness)
The last solar week was about revolution, forging bonds or breaking bonds, altering the form through the correct formula, and it might have brought lasting healing and recognition through patience.
This solar week is about yearning and burning, and finding one's fate through perseverance with the right commitments. This week is about freedom recognized as an illusion and limitation accepted as fate, especially the transpersonal limitations that we might encounter this week (see below).
13 February 2021 0:03 UTC: Beginning of the new solar week in gate 30 ䷝ (Aquarius) – the channel of recognition (22.214.171.124 Saturn-126.96.36.199 Sun▲)
Irrational hatred - or tolerance with others.
- 13 February 2021 7:48 UTC: Mercury conjunct Venus in 188.8.131.52 (Aquarius)
Recognizing and understanding when others need tolerance and acceptance. Overcoming disbelief in others and seeing that all people can learn and grow massively under the right circumstances, which at some point can lead them to embody the highest values, even if their starting point was not so fortunate and their shadows run deep. We might need a certain kind of breed and not everyone is for us, but that does not have to lead to hatred. This transit is about finding tolerance toward others and specifically toward those who are not for us.
Being open or observing others being open to insights that bring darkness, and making satire out of it, or undermining outdated values. Listening with empathy, but ultimately being burned out and needing silence to recharge one's batteries.
- 14 February 2021 2:12 UTC: Mars in 184.108.40.206▽ (Taurus) sextile Neptune in 220.127.116.11 (Pisces)
14 February 2021 21:39 UTC: Mercury conjunct Jupiter in 18.104.22.168▲ (Aquarius)
In the worst case such dark insights lead people astray into meaningless suffering and are instigated in order to exploit others materially. In the milder case they simply are harmless personal beliefs that emerged out of an inability to see the complete picture. This transit is about understanding where people come from and listening to them with empathy despite being pessimistic about it and despite a lack of trust in what they believe. For example someone might be so afraid of the apocalypse that they are afraid to go outside when it rains. That's not their natural state, it might have come from indoctrination through a cult to which they might have been very susceptible during a crisis-ridden phase of their life where they needed the love and fell for the love bombing because it felt so good to belong somewhere, only to then become more and more susceptible to indoctrination and material exploitation because they already had established an emotional bond to the cult members. There is a reason for everything, cause and effect. It should not be taken as a reason to put ourself above them and to hate on them.
Yet, this transit can bring out satire and being so tired and worn out from listening that we need a break. This can also bring the lesson that some people simply might not be for us because despite empathy for them we feel burned out by them. Again, it does not have to lead to hate and emotional instability, we can simply part ways and let them be.

Overcoming all relationship obstacles through listening, canvassing, and educating the uncommitted.
- 15 February 2021 5:09 UTC: Venus in 22.214.171.124▽ (Aquarius) trine the North Node in 126.96.36.199 (Gemini)
Recognition through feelings. Recognition of whom (or what) we value and who we want to take with us into the future. Being able to find greater harmony and value through listening to other people's secrets and finding a role and meaning for them. Gathering what's worth having in our life (relationships and people, but also goods). Overcoming all relationship obstacles through listening and winning those over who are still uncommitted. Gathering resources through administration.
Saturn square Uranus – Reality Check. Do not get stuck in disappointment and depression, there is a lesson to be learned in everything that ultimately can be turned to benefit and great progress.
- 17 February 2020 19:07:30 UTC: Saturn in 188.8.131.52▲ (Aquarius) square Uranus in 184.108.40.206 (Taurus)
Saturn squaring Uranus brings a reality check that demands that we face reality, but then do not get stuck in pessimism and depression, but make the best of it, not just because we need it, but because others need it as well. It lets us see the limitations, so that we can realistically work with them to ultimately gain something authentic and lasting from, instead of hunting for an unrealistic mental construct. In German, we say “to build cloud castles” and then, with this transit, “to drop out of all clouds”. Saturn-Uranus is not about building cloud castles, but about building a solid castle with a good structure firmly rooted in the earth that can be a solid foundation when we have to deal with unexpected challenges.
For example, many people have been looking forward to COVID-19 restrictions being released, and they have focused on a business that was highly at risk of not surviving should the pandemics stick with us. Those who have not been looking to build alternate options that can provide solidity if things don't go the way we wish them to go and put their business deeply into depth at a way too high risk, and those who generally have taken the financial side too lightly, might now be forced to reevaluate. What's more important, holding on to the family business of 3 generations, or feeding your children NOW and making sure they do not inherit a massive pile of debts? In life, you always have to make sacrifices, there is no situation where you don't need to sacrifice one thing for another. If you are going for lunch, you'll have multiple options to chose from. If you decide to eat sushi, you'll have to sacrifice all the other options because your stomach would not be able to take pizza, pasta, and grandma's vegetable soup on top of it. You'd probably be stomach sick for a very long time if you tried to eat all of it at once. If your big dream is to become a rocket scientist, you'll better study so that you won't get stuck in just being a rocket scientist, but that you can become a really successful space engineer. Along the way you might have to say no to invitations from people, and here and there, dependent on the circumstances, you might even need to sacrifice the pleasure of meeting your best friends for lunch. In life, you might need to sacrifice something so that your children can be well nurtured on all levels. The basis of life is that you can't have it all, which does not mean that you can't be extremely abundant - you can be extremely abundant. You simply can't have it ALL. You can only have what's for you. And you will need to make sacrifices along the way. Sometimes, for example in the case of having children, you will need to make sacrifices in order to achieve a larger goal. This transit brings the potential to truly, truly understand this principle, and to choose the right sacrifices to make.
The 41.6 can also bring great advantages, though, and it will bring rewards if we have been doing the right thing, or if we now diligently pay attention to what we are supposed to learn, and if we correct our situation accordingly.
The difficulty lies in navigating what we do with these advantages, where we invest them, who we share them with, and which trees we nurture with our energy, with our resources, and with our general advantages so that the right tree can grow.
Who will take advantage of our generosity (deliberately or unconsciously out of naivety and immaturity), and where is our energy, our good will, and our investment safe? What's realistic and yet authentic to care for?
This is all about finding our authentic fate through sensitive correction and through maintaining correct action.
Problematic: Getting stuck in difficult life lessons, including possible unexpected karmic backlash that is supposed to teach us and put us on our proper track where before we might have been deviating from it and being way too unrealistic. Losing our authentic path because we focus too much on the problems and limitations rather than making the best of them, and because we might get sloppy, demotivated, and don't face the challenge. Being so paranoid and suspicious that we don't move at all, and do not do what is necessary.
Productive: Being inventive and dealing with unexpected difficult lessons in innovative ways that help us to a) learn the lesson and b) make the best of it through caring for the right things and sharing our feelings where needed.
For some, this simply could be about reaping rewards and special advantages that have been earned through persistence, effort, patience, right action, and the right amount of care and wariness.
Next solar week will be about indecisiveness, breaking barriers that are in the way to intimacy, and abundance.
