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, along with some guidance and direction.
Weekly Forecast: August 14 - 20, 2011
8/16 ~ Venus (relationships) ~conjunct~ Sun (individual):
More love and relationship energy! You will feel the desire to express yourself in the context of a relationship. This may be just a show of affection or it may be that you feel good and just want to spread some of your joy to others. This is a good time for pampering your Self too, if sharing time and energy with another is not possible. This is also a good time for entertaining, especially if you do not have a significant other because it will give you the warm, social interaction you may be craving at this time. You may not even have to work that hard, someone else may have a social function and you may be just the “sunshine” needed to make the gathering bright and fun! So be creative and express your creativity in a warm, friendly way. Enjoy!
8/16 ~ Mercury (your voice) ~conjunct~ Venus (values):
This energy encourages you to see the Divine Order in the events of your life (good, bad and indifferent). You now have access to the ability to see the connection between the challenges, the necessity of them and, ultimately, honor & celebrate your personal growth and development. This energy will help you to see the patterns in your life; now it’s time to decide which patterns serve your Higher good and which patterns most certainly need to be released. Only you know the truth. This is a very mental energy, causing you to think, really think, about your life. You may finally be able to articulate things that have been going on in your head, some people say “I love you” at this time, or articulate your feelings. Take advantage of all this energy brings, but don’t give in to “over-thinking” things.
8/16 ~ Mercury (expression) ~conjunct~ Sun (core-Self):
This energy will compel you to express yourself on many levels. Communication will be a focus, just make sure it is reciprocated. You will have access to some powerful energy that can (and probably will) make quite an impression on others (if you need to). This is a good time to travel if possible too. However, if not physically, than mentally and certainly within your own area, you will take in more information per square inch than usual. Pay attention! You may even gain the much deserved recognition from others you have worked so hard for.
8/18 ~ Mars (your desire) ~sextile~ Jupiter (your Truth):
This energy will help you figure out what your deepest desires and Truth really are if you are not sure, and if you ARE sure already, then this is a potent opportunity to take things to the next level. You will have lots of extra energy, so definitely work in some physical activity (but don’t over-do it), make any presentations you need to make, negotiate any contracts or deals you need to because all is supported for you knowing who you are and what you want in a way that conveys without much effort on your part. The effort required to activate this easy energy is to actively pursue your desires, to expand your horizons by learning something new, by being around other like-minded souls and putting that extra energy behind some worthy project ... YOU!
