Stefan Bakalowicz - The Shepherd
The previous solar week was about learning to love humanity through integrating our own extremes, finding the right behavior, and finding love for ourself first. Jupiter went retrograde, Mercury went direct, and on top of that there was a full moon of hypocrisy versus actually walking one's talk.
This solar week is about inaction and concentrating on working at what brings us joy.
25 June 2021 5:02 UTC: Beginning of the new solar week in gate 52 ䷳ (Cancer) – active channels of the moment: the channel of transitoriness (184.108.40.206 Neptune-220.127.116.11 Mercury) & the channel of concentration (52.1 Sun-18.104.22.168 South Node)
Neptune retrograde: Overly rigid, severe, and obsessive correction incurs opposition and crisis – or going for the crisis, experience, change, and correction that WE need, and eliminating the rest on a quest to find the spirit.
- 25 June 2021 19:21 UTC: Neptune retrograde in 22.214.171.124
Collective challenge: Being against everything and everyone results in everything and everyone being against us. Rigid or delusional judgment without thorough understanding to back it up, always needing to be the center of the party, and needing to have the last word, all of which alienates others and easily creates a backlash and growth crisis.
Mastering the challenge: Knowing when to speak, what to say, and how to say it, or learning to do so through reflecting on crisis. Knowing when to fight, and persisting in the face of opposition, adversity, and crisis. Knowing what changes to go with and what to adapt to. Introspection on what WE need to drop because it brings the futile kind of crisis, and introspection on what WE need to persist with.
Neptune will go direct on the 1st of December in the 126.96.36.199▲. Ultimately, this Neptune retrograde might lead to greater sensitivity toward each other, and toward being so in tune with those right people who remain, that direct and simple behavior is absolutely sufficient, and that we won't feel like walking on eggshells around people – or that we simply don't care about the eggshells because our boots or the soles of our feet are thick enough to not take other people's trip personal and to be able to listen with sensitivity anyway – where it feels right for us.
More struggle with things that went wrong or that do not get manifested, at least not in the unrealistic pace that we might cling to. Either being unable to see any value for our future in our past experiences – or retreating in dignity in order to recover from it, and finding gratefulness for the small steps and accomplishments that give us perspective.
- 28 June 2021 13:04 UTC: Mars in 188.8.131.52 (Leo) trine the South Node in 184.108.40.206 (Sagittarius)
28 June 2021 21:30 UTC: Venus in 220.127.116.11 (Leo) in waxing quincunx to Jupiter in 18.104.22.168 (Pisces)
I hope you are doing all well with this Jupiter retrograde in the 55.3. Over here, the rail traffic of the whole city stopped city-wide because in several places the tracks and rail switches were congested with a melted mass (grouting compound) due to the heat, and the trams spread this stuff everywhere in and around the city when they drove through it. I was on my way home from town when it happened, and I was lucky that I still got home that day. There is melted mass in the tracks and melted mass on the tram wheels, and they have been busy cleaning it up for days, and tram service is still not back to normal.
The next solar week will be about provocation, teasing, tension, and individuality. It will be about fighting to overcome obstacles and to find the liberated spirit. Sometimes it might be about confronting some of the obstacles that we might have pondered and strategized on during this week, but most often it might be about choosing our battles wisely, disengaging from what doesn't feel right for us, letting it be what it is, and simply letting it go, or waiting some more.
