Edward John Poynter - On The Temple Steps
The last solar week was about inner truth and occult knowledge through detail work. It brought a new moon conjunct Pluto that was about inner truth and interdependence. Uranus went direct and brought the energy of applying a healthy social caution when it comes to caring.
This solar week is about realism, limitations, preservation, and storytelling. It is about acceptance of limitations - or seeking distraction in all sorts of stimuli.
16 January 2021 07:13 UTC: Beginning of the new solar week in gate 60 ䷻ (Capricorn)
Jupiter square Uranus: Staying stuck in a limitation that does not even exist anymore – or recognizing what or who we care for through feelings. Sharing and communicating that we care – acceptance is the first step to transcendence and to go beyond. Attracting nurturing guidance from others, or sharing our success and privileged information with someone else so that they might succeed as well.

This Jupiter transit is about applying the spiritual lessons that we learned and stepping onto brand new territory – or not, and staying stuck. First and foremost, this is a lesson about being realistic in our capacity to care and about protecting ourself against having our generosity abused by others – and yet sharing and caring where it truly matters.
Now more than ever, this aspect brings the difficulty of staying stuck, but also the potential to break free. It might be a struggle to break free, but a struggle that brings immense potential for transformation, for becoming oneself, for breaking with patterns that no longer serve us, and for stepping on the path that is the most authentic to us instead of staying stuck on a path that does not serve us.
Problematic: Shying people away through distorted ego bullshit (e.g. hatred against others), being rejected, and missing out on their much needed guidance and nurturing. Being unrealistic in one's capacity to care and losing power and strength through indiscriminate sharing. Sharing with the wrong people who selfishly use us and sap our strength in order to maintain their own strength in difficult times, people who just ride along while they let us do all the work and let us carry the load. Throwing one's energy down the drain, or even sharing with those who later plot against oneself.
Productive: Mutually beneficial alliances where both people do their fair share and are realistic about their capacity to contribute and care. Sharing one's success with the right people so that they can benefit as well, but not at our cost.

Macho or manchild/womanchild transit. Oversensitivy to rejection can result in aggression, violence, and victimization.

20 January 2021 20:38 UTC: Mercury in 22.214.171.124 ䷰ (Aquarius) trine North Node in 126.96.36.199 ䷬ (Gemini)
Problematic: Being unrealistic and ignoring limitations, creating chaos, and misusing one's influence and persuasion in order to be included – which can sap the strength of others and even lead to violence and victimization. Reacting to exclusion with aggression and not being able to accept other people's different opinion, path, or disinterest. Joining forces with someone who weakens us and letting ourself be depleted by someone (be it out of naivety or due to being intimidated).
Productive: Standing our ground and not letting others persuade us into things that are not for us, especially not if others create chaos in order to prove that we need to include them, and if they create situations that seem to demand our care but that are self-inflicted. Being realistic in our capacity to care and caring only for what TRULY matters, despite disapproval and futile action of those who are rejected.
21 January 2021 17:55 UTC: Jupiter enters gate 19 - channel of awareness (188.8.131.52 Pluto-184.108.40.206▲ Moon), channel of synthesis (220.127.116.11 Jupiter-18.104.22.168 Mercury) // 6/3 cross of distraction
Next solar week will be about working with limitations and recognizing the appropriate focus to make the best of what we have got. This current week's energy of ending the storyline of 2020 makes way for an energy of leading into the future, into 2021. The coming week brings a potential for the unexpected and it starts the new yearly cycle of 2021 (the Rave New Year).
