The video version of this forecast, as read by Kelly, is available here.
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 25 – 31, 2019
8/26 ~ Venus (love, finances & relationships) ~trine~ Uranus (freedom & liberation):
This energy is likely to bring a little excitement into your life, one way or another. It is a good time to do something different, try something new & consciously put your Self in situations where you have to improvise or think on your feet. We are in times of breaking old patterns and re-setting them in more positive, effective ways. You can still live your true values & priorities, but in a new & different way going forward. This blessing from the Cosmos allows you to align with more personal integrity & authenticity, which in turn is infused into all that you love & treasure. Relationships will have an unusual energy to them. An established relationship may sparkle with some extra “spice” or a new relationship begun under this energy may be stimulating & unusual but probably short-lived too. This is not necessarily a bad thing! It’s actually perfect for experimenting with new ideas & expressions to see what your Heart aligns really with and responds to. Use this energy to soak up some good energy & rare wisdom from those who are different from you, individually unique and live a little off-the-grid of your normal day-to-day.
8/26 ~ Pallas Enters SCORPIO (Aug 26 – Nov 8, 2019):
Pallas finishes a 10-month journey through Libra activating an awareness of the wisdom of balance, integration and general cohesiveness that comes from reconciling opposites – within or around you. We have had our perception of relationships, family, friendships or community shifted during this time and thus, we have access to other perspectives now that broaden our sense of kinship with others. We have made some life-changing adjustments in the relationship department over that time as well (Nov 2018 – Aug 2019). You may notice that we were also dealing with the Venus Retrograde in Libra/Scorpio during the last quarter of 2018 so, having Pallas linger in the Libra department, has extended our process of releasing imbalanced, toxic relationships or partnerships. We’ve also healed some relationships that will now be stronger than ever, which will allow us to get more accomplished when we are in-alignment with our support team.
Now, this Aug 2019, as she moves into Scorpio for a normal 2-month stay, is still very special because we are coming out “clean on the other side” in a way that Pallas traveling through Scorpio will activate your *prismatic perspective* on your true, individual power and your creative potential. Now that we’ve cleared some karmic and emotional debris over the last year or so, how can we create a life, or world, that channels power responsibly and co-creates with the Garden of Life that we are! According to Asteroid Goddesses by Demetra George & Douglas Bloch, Pallas “describes how we face the issues of learning, creativity, the arts, politics, healing, alienation from relationships, competition, and the fear of success”. So I believe, that as she moves through Scorpio, we will tend to the Soul Level, meaning we will add soul to all that we create, heal or learn. It’s a powerful re-set that will give you access to your own unique wisdom & power. Also, keep in mind, Scorpio brings the conception, Sag will expand the creation in a spiritual way and then Capricorn will ask you to make it real, give it form & structure or a foundation to exist upon … then you can go forward in Aquarius to serve humanity in some way ;)
8/28 ~ Mars (courage & passion) ~trine~ Uranus (freedom & individuality):
This is a powerful combo, however, it has to be integrated and consciously expressed to yield the best results, otherwise you may miss an opportunity for a major personal breakthrough. Mars gives you the courage and Uranus awakens new possibilities within. This is an easy alignment of your actions and your individual brilliance. You may even discover some new gift or talent that has been dormant for a while, but is now beginning to come to life. This energy pushes you to try something new that will liberate you in some way that you may have felt daunted by in the past. This new evolution to the next level should not entail you having to annihilate any other aspect of your life, you will just intuitively know it is time to change, and because of this trine/easy angle, it should turn out to be change that is fun & invigorating. It won’t matter what others think or say either, because the prompting for change comes from within so take advantage of this time to experiment. You never know where it will lead.
8/29 ~ Sun (core identity) ~trine~ Uranus (individuality):
This energy is wonderful for a little self-examination and taking action on your own behalf. Look at your habits, home situation, work or anything else that is important to you and look at how you’ve gotten to where you are. What kind of choices led to here & now? This is a good time to look around and see how you can conserve what is useful and release that which is no longer relevant for you going forward. It’s also a good energy for organizing & clearing the decks, so to speak, of things that have piled up but still need to be dealt with (or released altogether). You may be feeling very practical, possibly selfish, but it’s actually self-preservation – so go with it!
8/29 ~ Mercury Enters Virgo:
Hopefully, Mercury’s extended stay in Cancer/Leo (June – Aug 2019) has prepared you for this Virgo time. How’d your summer go? Did you change your mind about something? Did you find out what really nourishes you and connects you to your true heart? It’s journey through Virgo is going to allow you to truly process & integrate whatever came into your conscious awareness during this time. It’s time for discernment & discrimination – you will have to choose or decide which ideas are worth investing more energy into so you can get organized and anchor them into the new rhythm you are creating at this time. We are in the Pre-Harvest season for another month or so, and I think you will benefit from some time-outs in Nature to mentally process your summer. Reflect on the emotions of Solstice time and the creativity of Leo time to inspire the Virgo discipline to tend to the all the “little things” that allow the “big vision” to work in your life.
8/30 ~ VIRGO Super/New Moon:
The Virgo New Moon comes every year and presents us with an opportunity to reboot the *System* ~ your personal system, which usually entails creating a whole new routine as well. Theoretically, during the last Lunation (Leo/Aquarius), we decided what we were going to *express* (with more integrity & authenticity) and what we were going to *invest in* Self & Community (with more energy & resources) because there are new value & new priorities at this time. Virgo-time supports integrating all that you have learned about your core essential nature (Leo) recently, into a new routine and creating a completely new System for living, that will support you better in the here & now. It’s time to digest, assimilate & integrate the last 9-months specifically. Also deeply supported this month is acknowledging (and releasing) any *regrets*, mourning any true losses or deaths and deepening your dedication to that which is vital, strong, healthy & evolving (within & around you).
Pre-Harvest *Assessments* (Aug/Sept) always reveal what does or does not support your Physical & Spiritual Selves, that Spirit in human form. Twice a year (Feb/Mar & Aug/Sept), we have to take time out to check in on the Physical Body (Virgo) & Spiritual Being (Pisces). If you’re healthy, great! But if you have pushed yourself to the limits, it’s time to pull-back and recalibrate. We also have to check in with our Spiritual Being. If your practice is strong and supporting you, great! But if you have neglected your yoga or meditation, silence or sleep, again, this is the best time to reboot the system and dedicate to a new routine.
As we approach the *Harvest* for the year 2019, keep in mind that everything is a response to the last thing, and preparation for the next thing. So as you connect to what you love and your Authentic Self in Leo, you shift to how to anchor that Emergent Self in your day-to-day life so that you are individually secure as you move into Libra. That is time to cultivate relationship and/or engage with others on some level. It is also a great time of year to address any imbalances in your life as we approach our one-of-two opportunities each year to tune into physical, literal balance at the Equinoxes.
