Lawrence Alma-Tadema - An eloquent silence
The previous solar week was about education and attracting like-minded people. It was about exploring questions of survival, health, and safety, and manifesting accordingly on the material plane. The previous week was about ambition and manifesting efficiently. Self-awareness and previously accomplished inner growth might have helped us spot and admit past mistakes and to do things differently this time.
This solar week is about social withdrawal and caution, or selectively being social in the right moment with the right people when it feels right. It is about dealing with temptation through maintaining peace and a harmonic inner state. Often times, the less we give in to temptation, the less disturbed life becomes, and the less tempting the temptation becomes over time. At some point we start to ask ourself: Why did we find this thing so tempting and were willing to trade it for peace? Peace is something that can gain momentum and that grows over time, and everything that it impacts gains momentum as well.
This week brings the energy to withdraw from social connections and to reconsider who we talk to and who is worth sharing with. It is a week of reconsidering what might not be healthy or even unsafe and a never-ending futile struggle.
Some people might have lived the recent transit of Uranus through line 2.4 in the detriment: Instead of intuitively knowing where we are heading together, and being discrete about it, they might have spilled other people's secrets, or gossiped everywhere and disturbed the peace, or thwarted progress. In such a case, this week is about withdrawing from these folks and evaluating who we share things with and when. This can also be a week of realizing that it's effective to talk less about our vision to people who aren't even affected, and instead to spend our time on doing what's necessary to realize our vision. Phantazising about ideas and about our vision won't get us there.
This also is a week about accepting or rejecting relationships, either based on rigid narrow-mindedness or based on the highest values. It is a week of opening up or closing down emotionally, and observing how our own certainty or the certainty of other people grows, as we align to those relationships that are based on the highest values. It can be a week of gratitude and peace. But if there is an ongoing struggle with someone or something who deliberately tries to rob us of our peace, it also is a week of withdrawing socially to focus our energy on keeping our grip, striking out when it makes sense, and decisively transition into a new order despite ongoing interference. The energy to strike out fits with the delivery of long-range missiles to Ukraine, where the severity of the situation and the irrationality of the aggressor who only understands the language of the sword and of actively being defeated demands proactive defense. There are some situations that don't make any sense to fight for, and then there are some situations that need to be fought for continuously despite increasing chaos and disorder, to ultimately defeat the aggressors and restore peace.
13 June 2022 15:48 UTC: Beginning of the new solar week in gate 12 (12.1▽) ䷋ (Gemini) – active channels of the moment: the channel of structuring (184.108.40.206 South Node-220.127.116.11 North Node, 18.104.22.168 Venus). // completely open and undefined spleen center, and crown/head center.
Full Moon of being in the right place at the right time with the right people. Doubt and restlessness, or stillness and self-discipline that empowers us in times of challenge.

Generating and surviving crisis, even being empowered in the process, and being able to navigate it through previous crisis experience – or not, and facing something we or no one else has faced before. Facing it in great panic and fear of fate, or being composed.

Patience, and not skipping steps. Doing the necessary detail work. Investigating fatalistic questionable statements of people who insist on knowing it and who enjoy to tear things apart and seeing everything pitch black. Investigating these statements for their truth content instead of letting them lure us into self-betrayal and into abandoning what we know is right for us. Realizing that maybe it's not all as dark as it seems, and that the fates also have good things in store if we don't buy into the panic and stick to what we know is correct for us. We have this inner knowing for a reason. How can someone know what's the path for us to take, if not we ourself? Even if that path is already carved out for us, moment by moment we still decide to walk it or to become hopeless and abandon it as a self-fulfilling prophecy.
Good opinions are rooted in detail, data, and facts. But nonetheless, you can't argue with experience, and all data and facts are based on experiences that have been collected, and those patterns can change. They do change only after people follow their inner knowing and figure out that some things are not what everyone else said. We can only succeed in walking our own life path, not when we try to walk someone else's path. And we succeed not by abandoning ourself, but by persisting with what is uniquely for us.
This week will bring out different things in different people. For some people it will be correct to stick to it come hell or high water, everything else would be self-sabotage. For some people it will be correct to withdraw, and continuing would be utter folly. Both have in common that there is a need to do the necessary detail work, and to not take tempting short cuts.
Some people might withdraw out of self-betrayal because they do not want to do the detail work, they will think they can run from whatever it is that is made right for them, and they attempt to take the quick route somewhere else, but will likely fall flat on their face and encounter the same obstacles. Different place, different people, but still the same story and unfinished business.
Rembrandt - Saul and David
Self-analysis, self-awareness, not giving in to detrimental conditioning and rising nervousness, and finding greater composure. Knowing when to withdraw, especially if we are facing something that we have never faced and that we are definitely not equipped for.

Isolation, paranoia, and being a nervous mess after panicked premature exit – or recognizing that someone else's truth, opinion, or belief is not our truth, and that we need to find our own knowing and stay true to it. Trying to find the healthy realistic middle ground between naivety and paranoia.

16 June 2022 13:41 UTC: Sun in 18.104.22.168 (Gemini) square Neptune in 22.214.171.124 (Pisces)
Metamorphosis. More honesty, better communication, increased composure and resilience, or generally a new social form based on our new found understanding. Renewed hope that there will be movement and change. We are not stuck here, life is a continuous evolution, and progress will come.

The next solar week is about learning to love humanity through integrating our own extremes and finding love for ourself first. It is about collective correction and changing the pattern.
