Saturn has been retrograde in Libra since January 2011 and today (13th June) he finally moves direct. Moving direct, Saturn will encourage each of us to take control of our lives and focus on what is truly important. There is much work for each of us to do, and Saturn is encouraging us to roll up our sleeves and get stuck in now. The time for cogitation is over, and the time for action has come. This is not about risk taking or throwing caution to the wind, but it is about grabbing our lives with both hands and honouring our full potential.
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, along with some guidance and direction.
Jupiter enters Taurus today and he remains there until 2012. This is a strong and empowering placement for mighty Jupiter marking a time of self-reliance and inspiration. It is a time to affirm our inner strength and to tap into that vast well of knowledge within in order to guide us forwards on our paths in life.
Neptune is the dreamer, the sage, the visionary, the psychic, the artist and the bestower of Universal Love. Neptune is that subtle thread that connects us all through a beautiful cosmic dance of energies that swirl and flow within and around each of us connecting us to the Universe and making us One.
Powerful Pallas Athene moves retrograde in Aquarius today. She is the warrior queen; strong, resolute and determined. She is a feisty, fiery warrior often associated with war, anger and destruction, yet she also represents creative use of the mind, justice and strength. In many ways Pallas Athene is the force of self-preservation and the freedom of Spirit.
The Karmic Tools Weekly Forecast covers the current planetary transits which affect people in different ways and to various degrees of intensity.

Dear Humans in June of 2011 will begin a 30-day period that will offer important shift completions and change to the Earth and indeed mankind. This period completes many of the movements that in truth began months earlier. The release of 'old-energy' scenarios, situations and relationships that no longer are in resonance with the New Earth will occur in macro and micro, globally and individually.

June's new Moon in Gemini falls on June 1 in the United States and June 2 in Australia. The theme is one of 'freedom versus slavery' and it brings with it some interesting opportunities and challenges. The Sabian Symbol for the new Moon is Gemini 12: A Slave-Girl Demands Her Rights Of Her Mistress.
Communication, by definition, means the exchange of thoughts, messages, or the like, by speech, signals, or writing. If you don't communicate well, it should be made a priority to learn. Most people don't realize that bad communication is almost always the source of their frustration. Communication connects every part of a relationship (business, friendship or love).
Your energy may be lower than usual today. This is the Universe's way of slowing you down, momentarily. Take it easy and put off anything that can be put off. You may feel pessimistic, however, it will pass. In the meantime, try not to do anything that requires confidence or courage. If you do take on an ambitious project, you may find later that your objectives were totally unrealistic and/or impossible to attain.
I was meditating on one of the Sabian Symbol’s the other day ‘A withered old Indian squaw, with a clear light persisting in beady eyes, is selling trinkets’. I saw the Universe in her eyes, such strength, such vision, such beauty. The planets suddenly became even more verbose than usual giving more insight into the bigger picture...

May's Scorpio full Moon falls on Tuesday, May 17. It is a powerful full Moon and it has a surprising 'military' undertone, although that does not necessarily have to mean war and warfare and all that that theme brings up. The war, of course, can be within ourselves. This full Moon signals a move away from so much emphasis on Aries as several planets are now moving into Taurus. This suggests that the 'heat' may fade away and be replaced with more 'green' energy.
Now the going has got tough, many of the ‘tough’ seem to have done a runner! We are now standing in the midst of a cloud of confusion, feeling as though the world is slowly spinning out of control. Are we right to try to apply the brakes and step off, or is it time to trust the process and surrender to the chaos? Or is it simply our perception or a misconception that things seem a little awry?
