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.
Karmic Tools ~ Weekly Forecast: July 3 - 9, 2011
7/4 ~ Venus (relationships) ~trine~ Neptune (vision):
This is a very supportive energy for dreaming your world into being! Allow your imagination some latitude to wander and see where it leads. You may be very connected to others and what they are going through. You may have a very spiritual encounter with another; friend, family or lover - only time will tell if it is Neptune playing tricks on you or it is truly a spiritual union.
7/4 ~ Mercury (voice) ~trine~ Uranus (individuality):
This is a powerfully intuitive and stimulating energy. Your thinking may lack discipline, but your ability to access solutions to any recent (or long-standing) challenges and find instant and accurate clarity will be off the charts. This energy will not be contained, even though it is generally all mental, you really will have a hard time keeping up with the thoughts and intuitions that come to you under this influence. Pay attention! Communications with others will have this same “connected” feeling; be open to opinions and ideas that come your way. You may not have been ready for them previously, now you are!
7/5 ~ Mercury (expression) ~square~ Jupiter (truth):
This is usually a good energy, making you optimistic and positive. You are probably going to feel like setting some long-term goals. The only challenge with this energy is a tendency to overlook the details if they are not in line with YOUR plans. Just plan carefully and remember the big picture. Remain open and receptive to information that could help you down the road.
7/6 ~ Mars (energy) ~trine~ Saturn (stamina):
This is a delicious combo! Saturn brings the long term goals to the table and Mars’ energy can fuel your efforts creating amazing results. This energy enables you to focus longer, attend to the details, overcome obstacles, and get more tangible results of your actions. Normally, these two get together and it is more the ‘tortoise and the hare’ energy, which can be frustrating. However, they are in a blessed position to each other and if there is any major project which needs your attention, now is the time you will likely be in the mood to tackle it and be completely supported.
JUP TRI PLUTO 7/7
7/7 ~ Venus (relationships) ~square~ Uranus (freedom):
This energy usually provokes the need for excitement or stimulation in your relationships. You may feel the urge to shake things up. Be aware of others' feelings too, they may not be in the mood for sudden change. Another expression of this energy is to get things on the table; it's a great time to really discuss things and come to an agreement or compromise. This could actually stimulate something new and different that you can share with another. Ultimately, this is a test of your flexibility in relationships. The more inflexible you are, the more disruptive this energy will be.
7/8 ~ Venus (love, art & beauty) ~oppose~ Pluto (transformation):
Okay, on top of all the responsibility and career things being triggered this week, love relationships want in on the action. This energy intensifies experiences where love or close relationships are concerned. Beware of indiscretions and seeking a more intense feeling or emotion. Those feelings are destined not to last ... who can maintain that kind of high? Eventually you crash. This energy tends to make you uncontrollably drawn to someone you know is not good for you, which can only result in problems. This energy provokes manipulation, jealousy, guilt and other negative emotions that always come when you are trying to maintain something that wasn’t meant to be in the first place. Again, don’t try to force YOUR will, it can only lead to a broken heart in the end. If you are already in an intense relationship, beware of subconscious impulses, hidden resentments, unexpressed anger or frustration. Expressing it at this time can be helpful if you present your concerns in a constructive way, however, you will have to be vigilant in monitoring your own emotions in order to do that. Ultimately, if change needs to happen in your relationship this will be the catalyst. This energy is only “bad” if you are unwilling to get to the real root or source of the given conflict. Otherwise, it is like a storm that clears the air and makes everything grow better.
7/9 ~ Venus (relationships) ~sextile~ Jupiter (optimism):
This energy may help balance out the rest of the things happening this week (hopefully). Try to tap into it if you can, but it is up against some major movement so don’t be surprised if you miss its influence altogether. It is usually an easy energy to deal with, usually involving friends and social activities; optimism and new friendships or relationships that help you be the best person you can be. You will want to deal with positive, uplifting people under this influence.
7/9 ~ 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 and limitation that you feel overwhelmed and sometimes helpless. That's not the point of this energy. It's just time to take stock and make changes accordingly.
