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 24 - 30, 2016
~ NO ACTIVATIONS ~ ... which doesn't mean that there is no planetary movement.
4/26 ~ Pallas enters Pisces (before Retro in Pisces/Direct in Aquarius)
January 2016 - April 2017 ~ Pallas will be moving back and forth through Aquarius & Pisces. According to Asteroid Goddesses by Demetra George, Pallas "describes how we face the issues of learning, creativity, the arts, politics, healing, alienation from relationships, competition, and the fear of success". As she moves through Aquarius, we all get a dose of the wisdom of the future, of humanity operating at its highest level and working together en masse. However, the Retrograde suggests we will have to sort through much to determine the priorities at this time. Advancement is wonderful, however, we are only in the infancy of this new age, we need practice and surrender. As she moves into Pisces, she reveals where we've deluded ourselves and each other but also where the magic & potential for wholeness resides. We must open to our own innate wisdom, the wisdom of the heart, soul, mind & body, they all work together for the greater good.
4/28 ~ Mercury Retro in Taurus (until 5/22)
April 5 - June 12, 2016 ~ Mercury will be moving back and forth through Taurus, stimulating 2nd House issues of values, priorities, comforts, food, sex & money and your personal stability and ability to maintain your life, as you maintain a garden. This is an extended blessing this Spring, allowing you to cultivate your true values and reprioritize your life based on what is most important to you and your ability to thrive & prosper. Earth's abundance is infinite but it also requires that we honor the natural cycles of life, sometimes referred to as the Life/Death/Life Cycle. Any planet's extended stay in Taurus is getting you present to Mother Earth, the Elements and creative principle of Life itself. Mercury rules your ideas, thoughts & concepts so this is tremendous support for the containers of your creative ideas and the necessary additional time it may take to flesh them out, make them beautiful and sustainable. Use this time to tune in to Nature, get grounded, clear clutter, create beauty in your environment and assess what you have and what you need to move through the next season.
4/29 ~ Venus enters Taurus (until 5/24)
Venus rules Taurus & Libra and is at home in either, only her focus shifts ever-so slightly. In Taurus, the values & priorities are pretty literal and reflect what you value about your Self as well as in the world or in your relationships. Venus rules our magnetics, what we are naturally attracted to or repelled by so if you are attracting things, people or circumstances that you do not care for, then your only control is to shift your own magnetics. New response. New result. This is usually the time of year when we are focused on new beginnings, growth, development and change. Venus in Taurus insists that you also make it beautiful, nourishing and sustainable, think: Garden - food & beauty. Taurus energy, whether beginning or completing, always gives you the opportunity assess your priorities. What is REALLY important now? What nourishes, supports and sustains you now? And because Venus is involved, I'd add "Who" as well ~ Who nourishes, supports and sustains you now? The last time Venus was in Taurus was March/April 2015 so use this time as an opportunity to begin anew, seed new ideas and anchor new routines that will help manifest and sustain whatever you're cultivating at this time.
