Edward John Poynter - On The Temple Steps
The previous solar week was about the pressure to know the hidden mysteries, and the deepening of occult knowledge through detail work.
This solar week is about realism, limitations, preservation, and storytelling. It is about the acceptance of limitations - or seeking distraction in all sorts of stimuli.
16 January 2022 13:10 UTC: Beginning of the new solar week in gate 60 ䷻ (Capricorn) – active channels of the moment: the integration channel of charisma (184.108.40.206 South Node-220.127.116.11 North Node), the channel of curiosity (18.104.22.168▽ Mars-56.1▽ Earth), the channel of emotiong (22.214.171.124 Moon- // completely open spleen center, ego center, and crown center
Keywords: Utter distraction and getting lost in trivia and mulling about things that have absolutely no practical application, whatsoever – or focusing on what's practical for survival. Surviving on the mundane plane by provoking with temporary disengagement and not confronting obstacles. For example, when person A tries to distract person B with ideas and stimulation that are trivial, person B might just go silent for a while and not answer the call or the message. Either, person A is extremely moody and careless and oversensitive and takes everything personal, even things that are just a misunderstanding, so they get pissed because they don't understand that other things are more important now than for example the latest sitcom that they watch or the latest ten memes they got off reddit. Or, on the other hand, they do understand person B's need for different priorities, or for simply having a break. By the grace of disgrace of person A, you know whether person A is the right person for you, or whether they are just dragging down your spirit by their drama.
This is a week of understanding and DISCERNING what is NECESSARY AND HELPFUL FOR SURVIVAL.
Shining light on some truth and finding acceptance, or still refusing to accept it.
- 16 January 2022 14:50 UTC: Sun conjunct Pluto in 126.96.36.199 (Capricorn)
Accepting that some things are not fertile, but sterile – or not, continuing to bullshit oneself, and still getting hung up on relationships or collaborations that can't work. Alternatively, waiting for someone else to get that a no is a no, or accepting that the right thing is worth waiting for.
Full Moon of linkage and slow maturation through positive encouragement, or of having to move on.

Joseph M Gleeson - The Crab that played with the Sea
Someone conditions someone else to give up their defense or healthy values, which can lead down to breakdown of defense – or they don't get through, things stay stuck for good (184.108.40.206v) and they are forced to move on (56.2v). Maybe they don't have the depth to explain why and what they want, because it doesn't make no sense and is corrupted, and all they have it a lie based upon intentially limited understanding. A lie that they try to guide someone else with, down a very restrictive path that would ultimately lead to breakdown and something very unhealthy - so because it doesn't make sense objectively, it doesn't get through to the other person and doesn't get them interested.
The more positive version is: A person attracts nurturing guidance. Even when the values are not ideal, there is something worthwhile to be refined, and they enter such a process of developing depth. Likely, this happens because after the new moon two weeks ago, both people, or all people involved found that there is something that can be trusted in the other person. We need to trust our teachers and guides, in order to know that they are not misleading us. We also need to trust those who we guide and teach, in order to know that they can apply it in healthy ways, and that they won't use tools and knowledge in negative and exploitative ways over others.
In committed relationships, this can simply be about having established a deeper level of trust, and continuing to nurture each others talents through positive encouragement.
This can be about enduring and continuing to fight because others need it (children that depend on us, a committed partner in an unwanted third party situation, e.g. struggling to get rid of the toxic ex, a business partner who is a true partner and has the right spirit, but who struggles with the same interference and who depends on us to recognize it and fend it off, etc). Enduring such opposition when it is necessary ultimately leads to breaking new ground.
Lunar Nodes in gate 14 and 8: Growth through attracting the right guidance that empowers us on our unique life path. Attracting what we need to make our contribution and finding great change – or alienating those who could help and staying stuck.
- 18 January 2022 2:52 UTC: The lunar nodes shift from gate 34 and 20 into gate 14 and 8
The nodes stay in gate 14 and gate 8 for two months.
This brings huge irreversible karmic endings, but also new beginnings and attracting what we need to make our contribution and to grow. Life is always one big transition from one stage to the next. This can be a time of suffering in silence, even more so if we followed the wrong call, and yet this also can be a time of attracting the guidance and resources that we need in order to endure, to make our contribution, and to find greater harmony in life. Material success is Gods will, but no matter how much God wants it for us, it won't come if we do nothing for it, or drop out when it gets tough, even when we know that we are doing exactly the right thing and follow our unique trajectory.
This is about attracting what you need in order to fulfill your unique purpose, but as everything in life has two sides, this can also be about attracting conditioning that takes you further away from your unique purpose. Deep within you, you'll know what's right for you and what is not. If you do not know it in the moment, and if you feel confused or pressured by other people, remove yourself from them and take time for yourself to think and feel things through, away from anyone's influence.
Collective challenge: Being overly accepting of guidance and being conditioned into receiving the wrong call. Not being seen in one's existing depth, or not having the depth, being caught in superficial stimulation and distraction that has no real application, and being forced to move on. Often, people might stay unrecognized due to imbalances of the ego and the demands that they make. A sense of entitlement, and generally unhealthy approaches and demands can easily alienate people who otherwise could help because they do not want to be pulled down by such frequency. Refusing to adapt, and staying stuck, isolated, and alienated with no mutation and no change taking place. If you are unseen, but not making demands, stick with your unique process and don't let yourself be discouraged.
Mastering the challenge: Adapting and staying vigilant, alert, and realistic. Masking one's sensitivities and true feelings when it makes sense, and realizing that ideas are not everything and not the holy grail that should decide whether something is viable or not. Focusing on what is practical and turning one's energy to service after prolonged indecision (not necessarily to service for others or for a company or project that won't do it for you, but to service of higher values, which can happen in a totally different way than you initially thought). Following only the right call, that's truly necessary and serves the highest values.
Attracting nurturing guidance, positive role models, and positive reinforcement that help us grow. Continuing to fight for purpose, even in times of isolation and no communication.
The following transits and Uranus direct bring a tougher energy. The underlying energy is about being victimized and dominated by the ordering power of others, and if it's just “ok darling, you decide for me” – or not being victimized, sticking to your own convictions, and not letting others impose themselves on you.
This energy is about propaganda, propaganda, propaganda. It is about being conditioned into ignoring the red flags, and providing your resources to people who do not deserve them and who deplete you.
On the positive side, this is about recognizing feelings, the right relationship, and the call to one's unique life path, and going for it. But the conditioning and victimization that prevents people from taking their unique life path is really heavy, transit-wise. Looking at this, I think it's incredibly heavy conditioning to pull us away from what's our unique individuated purpose and path, and from what I've been experiencing on my own path, at least for me this rings true. Mutation can be incredibly cruel. Ra said mutation has to be tested. This is it. Let yourself be conditioned away from your path and eclipsed, or stick to your unique path against the odds and gain momentum, step by step, day by day, month by month.
Uranus direct: Living in a fantasy world based upon intentionally limited understanding because one is so afraid of what's underneath the gloss – or finding your truth in isolation, overcoming lame excuses, overcoming the fear of darkness and crisis, and hopefully not letting yourself be victimized.

There is the energy, despite general dissatisfaction, to refuse to understand certain things, to refuse to acknowledge red flags, and to let others dominate a person into what is certainly not healthy for them. You might escape an exploitative situation through openly refusing to adapt, or, which is maybe the only viable thing to do with certain people who will always try to manipulate you if you try to explain yourself and get them to understand: you might manage to escape an exploitative situation through veiling your sensitivities, adapting to the conditions on the surface, but acting independently to go your unique way.
Mastering the challenge: Seeing the whole picture, the good and the ugly, and maintaining our identity, our security, and our unique sense of direction in life. Rather enduring alone against massive resistance and against people who try to get stuff out of us solely because it benefits them, than to be made a victim by people. If there had been victimization in the past that now led to a dissatisfying reality, this is about enduring to struggle your way out of it. Ideally, you can explain yourself to people in such simple way, that everyone understands and that at least the good people who are on your side do not oppose you. This also is about working with limiting beliefs that we might have inherited from our upbringing, or about working through the fear of darkness and crisis that let us fall for “spiritual” approaches that focus on the light only, but that only did us a disservice, easily pull us off track, and prevent us from living our uniqueness. Deep change can take place when we look at those outdated family belief patterns, or at the way we do spiritual bypassing to avoid looking deeper.
Spiritual bypassing really makes you an easy prey for people to profit off you. All they need to do is to speak to your fear of darkness and sell you great bliss, and you are hooked. Ironically, people are then often hooked to things that bring massive, massive, massive amount of darkness and crisis to help them truly understand and overcome their spiritual bypassing, and to learn to accept the whole spectrum.
Within the transmission and interpretation of the Human Design system, there are also limiting beliefs and interpretations, that's why everyone of us has to find their own approach. It should not be believed blindly, but it is supposed to be experimented with. And in experimenting, you experiment only with that which feels right to do.
The biggest belief system that keeps people stuck in being victimized and exploited by others, is that forgiveness and acceptance is the holy grail of spiritual enlightenment. It's not. It's just used by people so that they can exploit others, and this myth is further strengthened by gullible good-hearted people who buy it, and who, extrapolating from their own nature, can't imagine that there are people who would intentionally exploit others, and who are specifically designed to do so.
Sometimes, forgiveness is needed. And sometimes, raw untamed wildness is needed.
North Node in Taurus
- 18 January 2022 18:49 UTC: North Node in Taurus
19 January 2022 21:31 UTC: Sun in 126.96.36.199 (Capricorn) trine the North Node in 188.8.131.52 (Taurus)
Energy-wise, this is almost the same than the above. But, the energy of the moon changed. It brings delusion, claiming fantasy to be fact, unrealized claims, and hypocrisy. Saying one thing, then doing the other, and not walking one's talk. It is about interpreting truth and promises generously, so that one can promise something, but still do the opposite through re-interpreting it a little.
This is something for us to be aware of: do we say certain things and then not do them? Maybe we are better off not making promises and agreements. Do we make claims that we have not realized yet and that could turn out to be fantasy? Maybe it's better to just keep things to ourself, and to just wait and see if it's going to turn out true or not. Are we even doing all of this to get stuff out of people? I guess, then all hope is lost, because such a person will not have an intrinsic motivation to change, they will continue to exploit others and ruin their own social life, and often they might not care about having it ruined, because they didn't care from the beginning, other than for what they could get out of others. But if we are on the receiving end of propaganda, false claims, and widely-interpreted promises, the North Node in Taurus can bring an EXTREMELY steep learning curve about what it means to make an authentic contribution, what it means to embody purpose, and what it means to be a role model, through being demonstrated the opposite.
Then, the question is: Do we get stuck in the old ways that we know do not work sustainably? These old ways do not work sustainybly because we always pay quite a price for actions that arise out of ego imbalances. Or do we change?
The next solar week will bring the energetic beginning of the new year 2022. It starts with a fantasy and limited resources, which demands that we focus our energy on the dream that we want to realize.
No Rave New Year 2022 Forecast
I don't think I'm going to be able to do a forecast, this year. I simply do not have the time.
But maybe there is something good to it.
2022 has its Mercury in the 41.4. To me, the 41.4 is the line of political incorrectness. It is called “survival of the fittest”, and it is about shunning weak associations and relationships in order to be able to make it and to then flourish. Can it get any more political incorrect than “survival of the fittest”? I don't think it can get any more politically incorrect. For example, I know a woman who has this in her Chiron wounding, and she has two disabled children who are totally dependent on her.
I have Mercury, Mars and Lilith in gate 39 square my Nodes, I'm supposed to trigger the shit out of people. Maybe there is a reason why I'm not supposed to touch this and talk about the 2022-energies in detail. It's just going to be politically incorrect, and when people paid for it, it's going to upset them even more, because they paid for being triggered. Better stick with the weekly tragedy and comedy. Lol. And when I'm mentioning a few thing here, at least people get offended for free, so they can't really complain.
Disabled children is probably not what 2022 is about, but for example China is isolating itself to maintain its strength. Also, I've seen news headlines that the state needs to pay increasing sums of money for the daycare of elderly people, because they can't afford their care anymore. Businesses might be going to die off like flies if they can not adapt to the new and changing conditions of the market and of life in general (57.1 Design Mercury and 26.5v Design Venus as an underlying energy for 2022). Then, like I mentioned in the 2021 report on page 53, in 2022 we are still dealing with the question of vaccination or not, and the possibility for avian flu. That old prognosis must suffice as an outlook. I haven't looked any further because I simply lack the time. Sorry. [Edit: I forgot to mention, with the Omnicron variant that seems to be more infectious, but less heavy in average, many people seem to suggest that those who aren't vaccinated will either reach immunity through the infection, or die, and that herd immunity might be reached the natural way to some extent, that's also survival of the fittest.]
On page 52 or 53 of the 2021 report, I also discussed mammals and that in 2021 something was likely to change that impacted the end of humans eating mammals. I thought this might be related to a plague, for example African Swine Fever, but then what it ended up being was Singapore approving the first laboratory grown chicken wing. That's something worth mentioning, to me it was really a surprise. Way more gentle, than I thought it would be, but the route of bioform engineering totally makes sense with the Mercury of 2021 being in the 49.2: altering the form through planning.
In 2022, we are still 2 years away from the year of the big crisis and transition, as mentioned somewhere in a timeline of a previous yearly forecast. If any of you remember that, I can't find where, but also I'm in a hurry. I think this coming year is about adapting in order to be well equipped for later. A solid foundation, if you will. Sink or swim. I would interpret it as: Leave all that old stuff behind that doesn't serve you anymore, adapt to changing times, and swim. Don't take old baggage with you, because it will drag you right back down with your face in the mud if you take it over. Focus all energy on the good stuff that truly, truly, truly matters to you. Just like last year: Only mutually beneficial relationships. That's basically it.
On a private level, this is just about sticking to one's one big dream, not getting distracted by weak relationships and side-projects, and focusing all energy onto the one big dream it in order to make it and find eventual flourishing. So it's sad, but it looks like for me the 2022 forecast would be a side project, because I simply can't find the energy and time without endangering my main project (which I can't say anything about, a 48.3 long-term developmental and experiential process of solutions).
