The Karmic Tools Weekly Forecast covers the current planetary transits which affect people in different ways and to various degrees of intensity. Take notice when it is a Personal planet (Sun / Moon / Mercury / Venus / Mars) interacting with a Social (Jupiter/Saturn) or Collective planet (Uranus / Neptune/Pluto). And pay extremely close attention when it is a Social planet interacting with a Collective planet because that means something *big* is brewing that will move large groups of people along their evolutionary paths. Tuning in to the energy and rhythm of the planets can serve as a useful *guide* as you move along your Individual Path. It also helps to understand your place within the context of the larger Social & Collective Story. Below, you will find out how these energies tend to manifest, as well as guidance and direction.
*NOTE* There are some days when there are NO CONTACTS (besides the Moon), please note that there are no missing entries, we just list the actual Activations of each week + the day they happen.
Weekly Forecast: April 22 - 28, 2012
4/22 ~ Sun (identity) ~sextile~ Neptune (vision): More sharp intuition available this week. You are able to step outside your Self and see how others' needs are important. You may feel the urge to be more giving and understanding than usual. This is also a good time for spiritual development. It won't be enough to merely know something, you will want to know the "larger" meaning. Your energy may be naturally low, that's an indication that it's time to focus more inwardly.
4/22 ~ Mercury (your thinking) ~conjunct~ Uranus (the Awakener): (1 of 3: 3/5 - 3/18 - 4/22)
It is said that this energy depends on your "normal mental speed" which is not the same as intelligence. If you are naturally quick mentally, this is a great energy that promotes and/or presents opportunities for you to create some interesting or stimulating communications with others. If you are not so naturally quick-minded, this energy will speed up your mental connections, strengthening your intuition. Either way, this energy is great for anything requiring originality and cleverness. You can see (intuit) with heightened awareness of the 'whole'. However, the downside to this energy is being over-sensitive and jumping to conclusions. Test your insights by analyzing them further before accepting them as truth and fact. It could also make you feel a little scattered in your thinking and you may have to consciously slow your mental pace and try to write down or actually finish each ideas as it comes to you.
4/23 ~ Sun (core identity) ~trine~ Mars (desire): This is a powerful energy for solidifying who you are and what you are capable of. It brings out your desire to be truly self-sustained and independent, and with the good angle between Sun and Mars, makes forward movement almost effortless. If you are not clear about who you are or what your purpose is, this energy will inspire you to find out. If you are already on track and crystal clear, then this energy strongly supports progress. It is a great time for physical activities that bring you joy and get your juices flowing. You should review, with gratitude, all the goals you’ve accomplished thus far and begin deciding what you can finish up in preparation for what’s coming. You are truly being prepared for your future, use this great energy to ground that intent.
4/25 ~ Mercury (expression) ~square~ Pluto (transformation): This energy is a tough, yet powerful one. It's Highest expression would be to focus on your inner discovery and development. It enables you to look beneath the surface to some core drives and gain some valuable insights and thus, choose a plan of action based on your discovery. You will want to know all the hidden meanings behind decisions you've made or want to make soon. Dig - you will find more than you think you're ready for, but apparently the Universe thinks differently! Pay attention and try not to worry about what anyone else thinks or believes. This energy's flip-side is to make you obsess over one particular idea and try to force others to your way of thinking. That is a bottomless pit - you cannot truly change the way other people think - you can only change the way you think & hope it enlightens others along the way, and it will, for those who are tuned in to your level. Try to only focus on you & your direction.
