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 26 - September 1, 2012
8/26 ~ Mars (action) ~trine~ Neptune (dreams):
This is a good time to reflect on your dreams and vision of Self and your life. You may feel inclined to help others, but always balance that drive with some objectivity (are those you’re helping just as dedicated to getting well as you are to helping them?) This is a very laid back energy that allows you time to take effective action on behalf of your dreams and spiritual growth.
8/29 ~ Sun (core-identity) ~trine~ Pluto (transformation):
This energy makes you want to get things done, by any means necessary and you may tend to come on a little strong - but it's all good. The work you want to do, is work that needs to be done and in doing it and facing things head-on, you will gain insights about yourself you can apply in the future. This intense and powerful energy is transformative in nature and will provoke you to think deeply about your life; what you need, desire and deserve. You may find that some aspects of your life need to be reformed or released - go for it - this energy makes reform and release easier than usual. It's a good time to make an impression or an impact on others, but be sure to keep it on the Highest level possible. Any actions or statements used to manipulate others for selfish gain WILL backfire on you in a big way. This is a positive, uplifting, transformative energy - use it as such to clear the debris and create the life you were born to live.
8/29 ~ Mercury (communication) ~sextile~ Saturn (responsibility):
This energy is really good for being able to objectively see what needs to be changed or corrected in your life or environment. One expression of this energy is a tendency toward depression or apathy, but a better expression would be facing what needs to be done and following through on what you have begun. You may feel the need to organize things at home or work, or perhaps take a class or workshop of some sort that will help you attain your current goals. Either way, be focused but not too serious - balance in all things. It's when you focus on the lack & limitation that you feel overwhelmed and sometimes helpless, which isn't the point of this energy. It's just time to take stock & change accordingly.
9/1 ~ Mercury (lower mind) ~oppose~ Neptune (Higher mind):
This energy requires us to balance the Higher and lower mind. Some sensitive souls will feel bombarded by energies from all sides and it may feel like information-overload and very stressful. The best use of this transit is meditation - not making important decisions or commitments for a week or so. Communication with others is challenged, another reason to only communicate with your Higher Self - or at least check in often this week! Don’t believe everything you read or hear. Allow information to flow at a comfortable pace and wait a week for the energy to shift before making any decisions based on the information gathered. Some will access the necessary clarity for furthering their vision - others vision will be blurred and just out of reach.
