Herbert James Draper - Day And The Dawnstar
The previous solar week was about commitment and persistence, or no commitment and no persistence.
This solar week is about finding union with another by being in the right spirit. It is about sexuality and breaking down barriers.
23 August 2021 0:41 UTC: Beginning of the new solar week in gate 59 ䷺ (Virgo) – active channels of the moment: the channel of abstraction (22.214.171.124 Mars-126.96.36.199▽ Mercury)
Off to new horizons: Separating from oppression and from carrying other people's weight. Correcting what we are receptive to and what we nurture with our resources and energy, or general correction in regard to basic resources. Receiving the call, or embodying the perfected form after having received the call and gone through a mystic process and initiation.
- 23 August 2021 12:48 UTC: Venus in 188.8.131.52 (Libra) trine Saturn in 184.108.40.206 (Aquarius)
Not trusting one's own discernment, allowing others to interfere with us, and being conditioned into futility - or understanding through experience where we are investing in the wrong futile relationships or endeavors, and correcting where we are heading accordingly.
- 25 August 2021 1:13 UTC: Mercury in 220.127.116.11 (Virgo) opposite Neptune in 18.104.22.168 (Pisces)
Feeling powerless and absolutely unseen and not at all recognized in one's private relationships or in the depth of solution that one has to offer, and getting discouraged and stuck in that – or knowing our worth, reclaiming our power, stopping to communicate with people who don't recognize us anyway, and stopping to help them bite through their problems: Knowing when enough is enough. Upholding influence when we know that the change that it brings is worth it for us, and slowly creating strength and power out of a weak position.
- 26 August 2021 13:24 UTC: Venus in 22.214.171.124 (Libra) opposite Chiron in 126.96.36.199 (Aries)
26 August 2021 14:23 UTC: Mercury in 188.8.131.52 (Virgo) trine Pluto in 184.108.40.206 (Capricorn)
This can also be about feeling powerless in having to endure interference and power struggles with people who simply don't have the intelligence to leave us alone.
In May, Neptune entered the gate of crisis and will continue this transit for the next years.. I'm not really that up-to-date with what's going on around the globe, but considering some of the recent events I've heard of, today's energy can be about feeling forgotten and feeling powerless in times of crisis. It can be about feeling forgotten when collective help might have been promised, but that help might not have arrived, or there might be other problems that are challenging in these crisis-ridden times. Some people might have to give up their business that might not have survived the lockdowns. Others might have to deal with fires, floods, we have recently seen some crises even in places where people aren't used to natural catastrophes of such magnitude, and where no one expected it to happen.
Today's aspect can also be about work and about the endurance that it takes to build your own business and develop your own solutions, or about the self-assuredness that it takes to start your own business despite not being seen in your potential and despite all rejection and mistakes within the process. All those mistakes will ultimately bring you the experience that you need to be and stay successful, powerful, and independent.
Again, new horizons, victory, and natural unchallengeable power. No self-awareness and extreme emotional destructiveness – or bringing balance into extreme and previously emotionally challenging relationships through emotional maturity and wisdom, and the power of strong emotions and love.

Struggling with moving toward the self-fulfillment that we need – or being on our path, sharing our depth, talent, and embodied solutions, and receiving as we give.
- 28 August 2021 17:43 UTC: Venus in 22.214.171.124▲ (Libra) in waxing quincunx to Uranus in 126.96.36.199 (Taurus)
The next solar week will be about codependency, or about liberation and being able to enjoy aloneness. It also is about recognizing when relationships are futile, and about removing those from power who need to be removed because they destabilize the group and thus truly deserve such drastic treatment.
