The previous solar week was about overcoming irrational justifications, finding inner renewal and greater rationality, being alert to the shadow in others, and coming to meet only under the right conditions.
Quarter or Mutation
This solar week is about creation through receptivity to higher knowing and higher guidance. It starts the yearly quarter of mutation. Creation independent of will - one year ago, I wanted to work on lots of things for the website. Then I was rerouted toward different tasks and paths through necessity and through all the signs that I received. I still haven't done all the things that I wanted to do, but now I'm in a much better place to continue from, and this is much better than my initial plans and what I initially thought that I needed to do.
5 Nov 2021-2 Feb 2022 - The yearly quarter of mutation: Independent and individuated hermitage – or giving in to inferior values and letting oneself be corrupted can lead to breakdown and being roadkill. Financial independence and behavioral independence through withdrawal from things that did not work and that were unhealthy, and carefully evaluating any future risks to take. During this time of the year, things that have served their purpose fall apart to make space for something new.
5 November 2021 11:07 UTC: Beginning of the quarter of mutation and the new solar week in gate 1.1 ䷀ (Scorpio) – active channels of the moment: an integration field consisting of the channel of charisma (18.104.22.168▽ South Node, -22.214.171.124▲ North Node), and the channel of awakening (10.2.6.2 Venus in waning quincunx to the North Node in 126.96.36.199▲) and a finger of Yod on the north node (188.8.131.52 Mercury in waxing quincunx to the North Node in 184.108.40.206▲). The channel of awareness (220.127.116.11 Pluto-18.104.22.168▽ Uranus) // completely open ego
Keywords: The value of your own path. Committing to your very own path despite fearing condemnation and rejection. Conditioning others into going their very own way despite their fears of being condemned and rejected for it. Fixing an unhealthy situation by withdrawing and going our own way, and rather staying single than to be stuck with the wrong person. Observing others in withdrawal. Conditioning others into withdrawal. This can go several ways: We can empower them to withdraw from what tries to pull them off their path. We can also give them no choice but to withdraw from us because we try to pull them off their path of because we live out unhealthy values, are overly dogmatic, condemning, sexually-obsessed, corrupt, self-serving, greedy, and irresponsible. We can pressure them to withdraw because their value system expressed as their behavior doesn't match up.
The upcoming eclipses are about superficial intimacy and ignoring the temptation to take premature action.
For some, this is about waiting and withdrawing, for others, this might be about being expedient and aligning with people who don't have a very evolved value system and intuitive intelligence, but who are good at making material gains. That might be what they or both people need on their path and what is practical to do at the moment for both parties to get to a necessary change and to get one step closer to purpose by turning inferior values into cash that they later might need, or by patiently working with each other on refining those corrupted values. It can also be about being conditioned into intimacy that is based on sexual fixation without real person-to-person relating - or about correcting such relationships by withdrawing from them and waiting for a more practicable bond to show up, or waiting for the right bond to become possible while we take care of the practical tasks ahead of us. It all depends on where we are at individually. The new moon one day ago had Mars in the 22.214.171.124, shaking hands with the devil and being called to the risk that WE need. But the values might not be the highest and might need to be worked on together, and thus some people will have taken that call because this will be exactly what they need to further their journey, and others will have missed it because they are waiting for the call that serves only the highest values. The Sun in gate 1 is in opposition to Uranus in gate 126.96.36.199▽, which is all about staying stuck and losing vitality through taking the wrong opportunity or missing the right one – or about finding purpose and vitality through missing the wrong opportunity, taking the right one, and being patient with the right opportunity that leads to greater harmony and beauty.
Beneficial mutation mostly does not happen through blind risk taking, but through careful evaluation of any possible endeavor. If instead we take blind risks that are not even worth it to us individually, in 2022, we might struggle with being overly dependent on others and letting them go, or with having others be overly dependent on us and getting rid of a difficult lesson when it is over.
Overall, this quarter brings a lot of focus on the material plane. Basically, even in case everything around you went to shits, and the right relationships aren't yet in sight because the old ones are still in the process of falling away, you can still maintain your strength and focus on making money. Self-expression and timing is independent of will. You can't force your insight onto others when it's not the right time yet. And generally in regard to your own creation and life unfolding, the life pattern dictates the flow, and we adapt to it. Whether we want to or not, it just happens.
Waiting. Impatience – or patient leadership that's not dependent on other people's confirmation, that enjoys alone time, and that is thus willing to wait or step down.
- 6 November 2021 15:57 UTC: Mercury in 188.8.131.52 (Scorpio) sextile Venus in 10.4.1.4 (Capricorn)
Accepting the judgment of others and separating from something. Missing the wrong opportunities and being patient with the right ones. Waiting for the right movement to lead, the right person to change, the right things to truly care for.
Finger of God on the North Node in 184.108.40.206▲: Individuation. Having patience with the right others, with our own transformation, and with the unfolding of our unique path. If it's truly our individuated path, it's worth the wait.

Withdrawal and conditioning others into withdrawal, or into following/abandoning their unique path. Intentionally limited understanding for good or for bad.
Collective challenge: being impatient with others and not being able to wait for them to change or to have clarity, and impatiently falling into opportunistic patterns and going for all the wrong opportunities because we can't wait for the right opportunities and moment, and thus become roadkill.
Mastering the challenge: Correcting our path by withdrawing from what didn't feel in alignment with or values. Knowing that we can't lead those who are not in alignment with where we are going, and that we can be picky. Correcting others where understanding might be missing, but being patient with waiting for the right other people's inner transformation and shadow work, or for their emotional clarity. Being patient with outside manifestation for things to move. Being patient with our own transformation and change. And yet ultimately not caring about all the things that are not our business, and focusing on OUR path instead of being dragged into the wrong opportunities that are solely based on mental reasoning
Avoiding attracting the attention of people who are a disturbance – or eccentricity and attracting the attention from codependent needy people who selfishly expect us to lead them somewhere. Receiving and answering the right or the wrong call. Sticking to the right call and upholding the creative process through planning, despite recognizing and appreciating interdependence.
- 10 November 2021 1:33 UTC: Saturn D back in gate 19 (19.1)
Recognizing interdependence, and recognizing the need for resources (without the necessary resources there is no transition into a solid new order after mutation has taken place). Being able to proceed through good planning and cooperation.
The worst case scenario is that we get so stuck on what we do not have yet, and that we get so stuck in pessimism and negativity, that we let ourself get insecure, discouraged, make mountains out of molehills, and become so afraid of being rejected that planning stays planning and never gets to action, and we just continue to forever carry the cross that we currently carry, although overcoming our fears and acting on our plans would in fact be less strain in the long run and would lead us to authentic purpose.
Planning makes only sense if we then act on it, otherwise it's wasted energy. With Saturn in gate 19, mutation and change takes place through having our old self die and rising beyond our fears, explicitly rising beyond the fear of being rejected. This is about finding the endurance to stick to what brings us authentic purpose in life.
Inner transformation and strongly enforcing healthy boundaries despite being afraid of rejection – or not, willfully ignoring red flags, and continuing to let someone run over us who simply can't lose.

10 November 2021 17:03 UTC: Mercury in 188.8.131.52 (Scorpio) square Saturn (and the Moon) in 184.108.40.206▽ (Aquarius)
Staying separate, organized, and independent through planning. Conditioning others into hopelessness, or into transformation and healthier conditions. Conditioning them into staying separate, or conditioning them into an inability to stay separate, into not being able to just let things be and throw in the towel. Whether a pep talk is good or bad depends on its context. It's possible to talk people into running into disaster or into wreaking havoc in the lives of people who don't want them there, despite meaning well, by giving encouragement for the wrong things when someone feels really down and hopeless.
If the conditions aren't healthy for us, people must be left behind even if it might make them feel hopeless. We can't lower our standard just to accommodate inferior elements and have them drag us under the wheels. Sometimes it can be very healthy to limit what you pay attention to, and to just focus on what's actually on your path, because everything else would be the most unhealthy manifestation of a savior complex. You can't allow yourself to feel sorry and to consider their unfortunate situation, when they are busy trying to cut off your finger and make you one of the unfortunate, as well - and whether they understand what they are doing, or not, does not matter. It does not matter whether they tell you they want to help you by cutting off your finger, and whether they truly believe that or not. What matters is what they are actually doing and what will be the result of it. If someone does not have the intelligence to understand the cause and effect of their actions, that is not your responsibility to take on for them just because they neglect it.
Collective challenge: Willfully ignoring red flags or other things that are simply not alright in an attempt to maintain harmony and not be rejected. Failing to apply healthy and necessary restrictions and putting people into their place.
Considering all the other elements in this transit, this is likely going to be about subjective judgment, rationalizing, and willfully hiding one's own dirt under the carpet and making excuses for it, or ignoring other people's dirt that they hid under the carpet, possibly also being led by lust and desire, and being met with a lack of boundaries.
This can serve the purpose of receiving a call through experiencing something devastating which causes a person to seek and wonder and at some point maybe find awakening. It can also be about being called out of something devastating, and planning one's way out. Other times, it might just be about staying stuck in unhealthy relationships that one has been in for years and years and years, and continuing to provide resources to people who truly are unhealthy to be with. If it's the wrong call and recognized as the wrong call of throwing our resources at people who deplete us, it might also be missed altogether.
Mastering the challenge: Not fearing the rejection, maintaining our individuality, and stating our conditions openly. Not dumbing ourself down to where others are at if it's unhealthy, and rather rejecting people when they fail to meet basic healthy conditions.
Being afraid of rejection upon meeting or having to enforce healthy conditions and boundaries, and thus being internally torn and easily striking a false note. Or rejecting failed principles or relationships, understanding the communicated conditions, and keeping one's sensitivities restrained even when necessary sacrifices might have to be made.
- 10 November 2021 23:13 UTC: Mars in 220.127.116.11 (Scorpio) square Saturn in 18.104.22.168▽ (Aquarius)
Finding an objective understanding. Coming to reject an unhealthy relationship, maybe when the relationship karma or the other person is perverted and energetically degenerated. Since I'm regularly bashing toxic masculinity, to be fair: This is a transit where a male energy might reject a toxic female energy who deludes herself over the state of the current affairs.
The next solar week will be about facing the fear of rejection and mental breakthrough through expressing what we know. It will be about structuring and efficiency.
