Human Rights Article 1
The previous solar week was about assimilation, tolerance, diversity, structuring, and individual explanation. Neptune entered gate 36, the gate of crisis, and started a process of deep collective purging.
This solar week is about encouragement, and making our individual contribution. It also is about attracting the resources that help us to realize our individual contribution and project, and about holding on to the right things.
It can bring social mimicry and misused emotional contagion, but it also can bring infectious enthusiasm where others really need the encouragement, possibly when they face rejection and thus benefit from a bigger perspective and renewed hope for their future.
15 May 2021 2:36 UTC: Beginning of the new solar week in gate 8 ䷇ (Taurus) – active channels of the moment: the channel of emoting (188.8.131.52 Mars-184.108.40.206▲ Jupiter) & channel of transitoriness (220.127.116.11 Neptune-18.104.22.168 Mercury)
Bulldozing over others without empathy and without consideration of them.
- 15 May 2021 14:48 UTC: Mars in 22.214.171.124▽ (Cancer) in waxing quincunx to Saturn in 126.96.36.199 (Aquarius)
The challenge: Being frustrated with externally enforced inaction, and/or being frustrated with having been excluded and rejected during the last months. Not being able to accept that, trying to correct the situation and to escape those restraints, and stubbornly trying to bulldoze one's way through in the hopes of gathering support, possibly having unclean motives and no consideration of the other person, while acting as if. Thinking that energy alone can solve it, and running the other person over.
Mastering the challenge: Accepting restraint and inaction instead of bulldozing over people to get to what we want. Recognizing that certain people try to condition us in manipulative ways, fending them off, and letting them go. Waiting for those people who really have the right spirit.Recognizing that with certain people we really can't find the spirit, leaving those people alone, and rethinking where we are going and how, in the hopes that better relationship will find us - relationships where we are being listened to, and relationships where people are really interested in our well-being. Being grateful for the lesson, restrategizing, and correcting the situation.
Accepting superficial intimacy and relationships as a way to make a contribution and to make money (colleagues do not have to like each other to get along) – or having been talked into things by others, and now having to deal with the consequences of always having to deal with someone who wants to be the center of attention, who is overbearing, and who tries to solve problems only coming from ego and ulterior motives, not because it is necessary and helpful.

Venus conjunct the North Node: Either not knowing our standards, having low standards, and being gullible to what doesn't meet our standards – or a new evolved understanding of relationships standards and of false propaganda, and being able to act and to react accordingly to get us on a good future path.
- 17 May 2021 20:38 UTC: Venus conjunct the North Node in 220.127.116.11 (Gemini)
Having learned through social disappointments and challenges. Not falling for misleading enthusiasm and false propaganda, but being able to meet other people where they are at, and adapting in our behavior accordingly.
Recognizing when people want to be included by trying to solve problems, but when they are just a little bit too desperate and don't do it for common interest and mutual benefit.
On the other hand: doing everything to dissolve old problems and obstacles, and to be included, because now we have understood what's exactly the right relationships to be invested in, and what's worth waiting for and working at ourself for. Possibly working at obstacles that prevented inclusion – not rigidly, but going at it step by step, day by day, and being grateful for the small progress that we make and for the long way that we have come.
Paul Jean Gervais - La Folie de Titania
Feeling powerless upon being rejected and withdrawing - or just keeping on going, recognizing it as an opportunity for rectification, working at ourself, and bettering ourself to open up the way for new possibilities
- 18 May 2021 11:43 UTC: Venus in 18.104.22.168▲▽ (Gemini) sextile Chiron in 22.214.171.124 (Aries)
This transit points to letting an opportunity slide because it is not healthy – at least not in the current state in which things are – but communicating respectfully, even if the other person lacks that sensitivity. This aspect is about the way in which we deal with the rejection.
If this is about an unsuccessful job interview, it simply might not have been the right one yet, but that doesn't mean that you won't find the right work place for you. Sometimes it simply takes time. If it's about a bad work environment, being micromanaged, being used for the dirty work that no one else wants to do, not being heard and recognized in your solutions, and generally feeling powerless at work, this kind of work place trouble might actually get some people to a point where they decide that they can't have a boss and need to do their own thing. That's not the right path for everyone, but for some people it is the only path that can ever work for them. Even if right now is not the right moment to transition, but if it feels right to do in the long run, it surely is absolutely worthwhile and never too late to work toward that freedom and to wait for the right opportunities to make the change.
The challenge: Feeling powerless in the face of rejection, losing one's self-worth, and withdrawing completely. Making up excuses for past mistakes, and getting stuck exactly where we are because we don't learn from the past. Allowing past or present criticism to hold us back from new beginnings - new beginnings in relationships, but also job wise. It does not matter whether your family thinks your business idea can work, or whether they think you are nuts being so invested in this. Unless your family consists of very successful entrepreneurs and competent business consultants who really know what they are talking about and have valuable insights to contribute, ignore their disapproval, their critique, and also their well-meant advice and worry. It's good to take into consideration valid concerns in order to refine your strategy and make it less error-prone, but ultimately just do what you know that you need to do. When people see that it works they will change their mind, but to even get them there it might take years for them to get over their limiting beliefs. These beliefs are not yours, though, and they have nothing to do with your potential. So they do not matter.
Mastering the challenge: Accepting rejection and criticism as part of the process, and rethinking our own standards, values, and approaches to relationships or work. Sometimes it might simply be a mismatch, and sometimes there might be something that we can work at and transform. This particular transit points to the latter. It points to assessing the past, admitting past mistakes, and then transforming standards and principles, which opens up the way to new possibilities.
Ideally, we refuse to get other people's limiting beliefs get close to us, but we see the problems that other people point out as an opportunity to shed our skin and become more powerful, stable, and solid within ourself. We take back control that we might have given away too freely.
We recognize that we are in control to change whatever leads others to legitimately reject us (if it is a legitimate concern, and if it is something that we truly need to work at). We are never in control of others, and we should not be, they have a right to reject us. But we are in control of ourself. We are in control to change and become a better version of ourself - step by step, bit by bit, finding joy and gratitude for the small victories. What's worth changing for and biting through all the problems on the way? What can lead to greater progress and freedom in the long run?
Bringing change and progress into other people's life through listening and going through things step by step.

The challenge: Needing to be the center for progress and collaborating only in the hopes for getting out of it what we imagine. Not being able to wait, doing stupid things, and losing momentum.
Mastering the challenge: Empathetic collaboration to get where we imagine for the benefit of everyone involved. Listening to others to resolve problems, and knowing which discussions are worth sitting through. Knowing what kind of progress is worth waiting for throughout any difficulties.
The next solar week can bring about busyness and the energy to be active. That energy can serve us well if we apply it well and if we don't let it drive us into pushing our energetic limits too far. The next week will be about simply being in the now and watching what's going on in the present moment. We can not do that when we are racing through life like a mad chicken, then our perception is very limited. When we apply our power consciously, and when we invest it well, so that we stay in the flow, then we can keep watching consciously and grow in awareness.
