Isaak Brodsky - Fallen Leafs
The previous solar week was about self-oppression due to one's own disgraceful actions, or about trauma through oppression from others, often in response to one's grace or disgrace toward others and due to being socially open or closed to them (with some people all that you are doing is wrong and causes them to oppress you).
This solar week is about opening up emotionally, or emotionally closing down toward something. The fear of being too inexperienced, the fear of intimacy, and the fear of emotional instability, crisis, and conflict are all fears that can lead to self-betrayal and to staying stuck when it comes to these kinds of intimate decisions. Ultimately though, we might recognize what's worth opening up to through overcoming such blockages or through busting through sexual blockages (sex unlocks hormones and emotions). Or we might recognize that despite the possible difficulties and emotional darkness that we will encounter on the way, something is worth every second of experiencing it nonetheless. Sometimes in life, there are those things that are worth all the trouble, come what may.

Having become more sensitive and discerning, or still wreaking havoc and being a disturbance and distraction.
- 16 September 2021 14:17 UTC: Sun in 184.108.40.206 (Virgo) in waning quincunx to Jupiter in 220.127.116.11 (Aquarius)
17 September 2021 1:52 UTC: Sun in 18.104.22.168 (Virgo) trine Pluto in 22.214.171.124 (Capricorn)
Collective challenge: Not having learned a lot, and still being an utterly uncontrolled disturbance. Rejecting everything and everyone without any sensitivity and without any discernment, but with plain cold emotionally absent destructiveness.
Mastering the challenge: Having learned to find the weakest point in a conflict and to poke one's finger into it with sensitivity but determination. Furthering the exploration of truth through advancing, dropping the bomb, and withdrawing.
Having understood that sometimes collaboration is but a distraction, and that some things need to be done by ourself because everyone else will get us off focus. Sometimes, involving others will just be an invitation for them to constantly distract us from what matters, which will result in chaos, unnecessary burden, and emotional strain. When we maintain that healthy focus of ours, we can still cooperate where it truly makes sense and leads to greater harmony, but not everyone is worth paying attention to. Involving only the right people into our research or projects who will contribute something of value that's actually needed, and that will help us to know the fundamental principles.
Recognition of authentic purpose through feelings, and through having been determined enough to stick with the process. Your depth of emotion helps you to turn a weak position into a strong one.

This is one more massive, massive milestone on the path of reaching emotional clarity. The risk of a lifetime, or the purpose of a life is not an easy thing to move toward to. It can come with a lot of fear because there is so much purpose, meaning, and thus fear of loss attached to it. This aspect is about recognizing what's truly purposeful to you, but it also brings a very challenging lesson of facing all the fears that come with that recognition.
Collective challenge: Fear, hopelessness, and repressed or hidden feelings due to being afraid of being rejected and losing purpose when we share our feelings openly. Staying stuck in that fear at the expense of progress and purpose.
Mastering the challenge: Recognizing what's worth risking it all for, and what's the only viable and authentic thing to do, and facing one's fears. If you get stuck in your fears and allow your fears to keep you from fighting for your authentic individual purpose in life, you have already lost out on purpose before you even started to fight for it. It's better to just try, then at least you know you tried and did your part in making it work. When you don't follow your dreams, you lose out on a purposeful life, and instead you get lifelong regret that will follow you to your deathbed.
Maximization of potential, recognizing the right conditions for the right risk to take, and putting inferior elements into their place (putting interfering people into their place and putting your fears into their place). Finding rebirth, inner renewal, and building a new order from the ashes of the old.
Metamorphosis and transformation through paying attention to all aspects of a process, and to all emotions. A new social form and the emergence from standstill. Letting mature emotions (rather than mind) dominate relationships, and moving on to new horizons.

Staying stuck in one's fear that thing will not work and that any attempts will lead to nothing more but huge embarrassment and being blocked or ghosted – or maintaining continuity, sticking to the rhythm that works, and successfully transgressing behavioral norms through paying attention to all aspects of the process and being considerate of other people's feelings, and finding your individual direct straightforward expression.
And yet, if someone is not considerate of others or if someone generally is not a healthy influence for us, there might be a challenge to restrict them and put them in their place due to an exaggerated need for harmony, even if the harmony is fake. There might be a fear of the negative emotional backlash that happens after we put someone in their place. Usually, things do not fail because you restrict inferior elements, enforce healthy conditions, and cut the wrong people off. Usually, things do fail when you are overly peaceful and accept people's shit, which is when you allow them to slowly undermine the whole situation and completely destabilize it at your expense, which ultimately leads to failure.
Carl Spitzweg - Das Auge des Gesetzes (Justitia)
Doing what is practical despite possible doubt: Having given up the excessive need for harmony that allowed people to run over us, and having developed a cutting indifference when it comes to having to use heavy power and force in response to interference, inferior influences, and self-righteous people on a power trip – or still struggling with enforcing healthy boundaries and with toxic people returning.

Full Moon of Justice and the inevitable survival of right. Ego-delusion, and incurring the big fat humbling crisis that destroys the false sense of self and shatters the shadow and not-self. Cynicism, or acceptance of authentic and correct crisis as part of the way and knowing that all struggle has its beginning and will also have its end.

As if that wasn't self-explanatory already, the ajna center and the ego center are completely open and undefined.

Sharp judgment and a cutting tongue. Establishing correct action on the larger social realm, using power only to annihilate interference and to keep inferior elements weak so that they can't misuse power and destabilize everything, and then immediately returning back to normal purposes and letting people leave in peace. And yet, a possible dissatisfaction with always having to release power in response to interference.
If the crisis isn't induced by having to deal with outside interference, or with being on the other side of the fence and facing one's own carefully crafted false persona and having to look at one's actual motivations [ Saturn retrograde in 13.1 ], then this crisis can have to do with recognizing our path, purpose, and the only risk that is worthwhile and purposeful to take. As eye-opening as it can be, it can also bring huge emotional turmoil – as a necessary part of the way. This can be a necessary crisis that burns away some of the fears, false inauthentic concepts, false inauthentic standards, and old patterns and conditioning that block the road, especially the fears that have kept us from experiencing truly authentic intimacy.
The next solar week will be about being in the body, and persistence that at some point leads to success. It is about unconditional love and innocence, or a lack thereof, and about love or hate of the body.
