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: March 20 - 26, 2016
3/20 ~ Venus (values) ~conjunct~ Neptune (dreams):
This energy is the power of your vision combined with your deepest values. Your connection to the whole, your contribution and your purpose are demanding some attention. It is time to be more intuitive than linear - time to inspire rather than convince. Finances and relationships are hard to sort out definitively with this energy, it is better to express yourself creatively or artistically. This energy reminds you how interrelated everything is, so aligning your values within and without goes a long way for manifesting the vision. Follow your intuition and maintain integrity.
3/23 ~ Jupiter (Truth) ~square~ Saturn (Purpose): (2 of 3: 8.3.2015 ~ 3.23.2016 ~ 5.26.2016)
For this activation, I'd like to start by saying: when you change, everything (and everyone) around you must change or go away. It is the natural law. This means adjustments are going to have to be made around your belief system and your reality. Are they congruent? Are you living your Truth? Do you know your true Purpose (at this time)? While this may not be an easy one, it is a good one! Think of your Life Path since 2000, with special attention to 2005, 2010, now/2015 and it culminates in 2020. It's a great time to really meditate on how you'd like your life to be a reflection of your Truth & Purpose. These two activate the Expand/Consolidate process within but in this case, it is not an either/or, you must do both, but in very different Areas of Life (Houses of Leo/Scorpio in this case). Often, sacrifices must be made in the name of 'progress', in this case YOURS. The blessing of this activation is that, if you're solid on your Truth & Purpose, you can gain some real traction with your professional or educational goals. Jupiter always brings expansion, so whatever you're doing or creating at this time can have long-term results, so be patient when you're feeling restless or limited. Pause. Pray. Then Proceed. There is always disruption during growth spurts, and sacrifices will be made but not in a careless or destructive way. At least, that is the goal ; -) This activation challenges you to align what you believe is possible for you with the reality you're living.
3/23 ~ 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, then 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 that you have worked so hard for.
3/24 ~ Mercury (your voice) ~trine~ Mars (your actions):
This is a great alignment of your Thoughts & Actions. Clarity is effortless and you can follow your instincts. Be mindful of the Element too ~ in this case (3.24.2016), FIRE ~ this is your creative spark or impulse to create, move, choose. Fire brings cleansing & transformation and a fresh new beginning. It is a great energy which gives you the courage to think things through and it activates your ability for strategic problem-solving if/when necessary. You will have direct access your authentic, inner voice so if you need/want an expressive outlet, you will likely find one. It's also a great energy for small gatherings for spiritual, creative and/or intellectual exchange. Enjoy it! Just keep in mind your own Elemental Balance as well and how you naturally work with Fire in your life.
3/24 ~ Venus (love, art & beauty) ~oppose~ Jupiter (expansion):
This is a great energy for enjoying nature, really good food & drink, fun company and lots of laughter! This is a celebration type of energy, to be enjoyed but not to excess or to the neglect of your health or well-being. It's very creative and activates the true Inner Artist within all of us. It's also good to consider that you are at a MidPoint in a relationship or creative project that you started about 6-months ago; is it still viable? is the Story you're telling still true? where's the value? is it worth it? So whether you are an artist or not, this activation can facilitate an infinitely creative mood, and expand your work immensely. Activate your imagination, think big, have fun & laugh today, but tomorrow, plan to start moving in a new direction that is more authentic for you personally.
3/25 ~ Venus (values) ~square~ Saturn (foundation):
This energy can make you feel cool & detached with loved ones. It is time to 'take stock' of your relationships and really evaluate the level of balance between giving & receiving. Business or personal - relationships must have a balance of give & take. You may feel more aware of your true independence in life and start reevaluating the need for certain relationships in your life. This energy pushes you to dig for your own fortitude & determination to live according to your own values & priorities and corrections or adjustments may be necessary and fairly obvious at this time. You may feel lonely, depressed or disconnected but it's just the Universe forcing you to question or assess your current relationships, how you interact with others and how you allow them to interact with you. It's good to periodically evaluate even the strongest relationship and check the foundation. Don't give in to (ego-based) fears, focusing on the lack & limitation or what is not working, but instead build on your strengths and honor the goodness you've created together, as well as in your Self. This is the best time to be alone and reflective because the insights you acquire through this process will help you in the future.
*NOTE* I have to mention here that Venus contacting both Jupiter & Saturn a day apart is a potent alignment for positive change. It may not always be comfortable or fun, but the changes you implement this year will go a long way toward supporting your true values & priorities. As that happens, your life will better resemble something you created with your own heart & two hands. This is a time to set intentions around cultivating your life like a living Garden that feeds, sustains & protects you but also yields beauty, magic & joy that only comes from interacting with the natural world, in natural ways for you.
3/26 ~ Sun (core identity) ~trine~ Mars (desire):
This is a powerful energy for solidifying who you are, what you want and what you are capable of. It brings out your desire to be truly self-sustained & independent, and with the good angle between Sun & Mars, you are deeply supported for forward movement that feels almost effortless when you are grounded and aligned with your own Truth & Purpose. If you are not clear about who you are or what your purpose is, this energy will inspire you to find out. If you are already on track and crystal clear, then this energy strongly supports progress & evolution to the next level in obvious ways. It is a great time for physical activities that bring you joy and get your juices flowing. You should review, with gratitude, all the goals you've accomplished thus far and begin deciding what you can finish up in preparation for what's coming. You are truly being prepared for your future, use this great energy to ground that intent consciously and with a vote from your Heart & Soul.
3/26 ~ Venus (relationships) ~sextile~ Pluto (transformation):
This energy deepens all emotions and strengthens bonds & attachments. Friendships & love relationships become much deeper and, sometimes more intense, not to mention any physical (sexual) experience. Being fake or superficial is never possible when Pluto is involved, and because Venus is involved, we're talking relationships or how you relate in general, so if you are needing to dig a little deeper with someone, you are supported. This energy can facilitate positive transformation in your relationships, partnerships or collaborations. It will give you added power to help you change what needs changing or at least get it on the table for deeper discussion or a clearing conversation. Your emotional intensity may be at an unusually high level, so be sure to surround yourself with people who love you unconditionally or try to be alone and just reflect on what you're feeling.
