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: August 19 - 25, 2012
8/20 ~ Sun (confidence) ~sextile~ Mars (action):
This is an excellent time for action! You may have some good, positive energy brewing that if it does not find an outlet, could turn negative. So DO something! Work on accomplishing some long sought after goals, physical, spiritual, emotional, mental or material. The Universe supports action at this time. Call in help from other like-minded souls - reach out - share this energy and see where it leads. During this kind of energy, you could secure a stronger position and if you have to fight for something, you will do so effectively because it is time.
8/22 ~ Mercury (your voice) ~sextile~ Jupiter (expansion):
This energy can make you focus on the larger issues in your life. Your dreams are tapping you on the shoulder, demanding some attention. Mundane issues do not concern you, you want to figure out how to create the life you've been imagining. This energy also provokes within you the understanding that being generous naturally attracts generosity to you (and your cause). You're focused on the big picture and overall patterns which have lead you to this point. Feeling clear, sharp, alert and optimistic, your realize that anything you can imagine, you can achieve.
8/24 ~ Sun (ego) ~oppose~ Neptune (dissolution):
This can be a very confusing energy. You will be very sensitive to others and their needs and how they relate to your own. You may want to withdraw or not voice your opinion just to avoid conflict, feeling like it wouldn’t solve anything anyway. However, do not give in to the temptation of being “slick” either, that will only bring more challenges your way. You may want to give in to another person’s demands when you have a valid reason not to. Avoid playing the victim. Be honest and up-front with anyone demanding a confrontation at this time, that you would rather gather your thoughts and discuss things later (by then this energy will have passed) when you can articulate your side of things better. Be aware of deception - both on your part and/or the part of others (trying to deceive you). Your discernment is not its strongest under this influence so it is best to be still and quiet until the energy passes. Take this time to do some spiritual, inner work.
