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 3 - 9, 2013
3/4 ~ 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.
3/4 ~ Venus (socializing) ~square~ Jupiter (increase):
This energy is a happy-go-lucky kind of energy that doesn't really want to be bothered with the mundane, however, you must not allow that passing energy to get you so off track that it costs you more than it is worth. If you don't have any pressing obligations, then this will be a fun, relaxing time, possibly with friends having a good time. However, if you have work to do, make sure it gets done first so you can truly enjoy yourself without the worry of the pile being bigger when you return. Watch the excesses as well, food, drink and/or spending.
3/6 ~ Venus (relationships) ~sextile~ Pluto (transformation):
This energy deepens all emotions. Friendships and love relationships become much deeper and more intense, not to mention any physical (sexual) experience. There is nothing superficial about this energy, nor will you be satisfied with any superficial exchange, with friends or lovers. It is best to try to understand the depth of your emotions even if you are unable to express them outwardly. 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.
3/6 ~ Venus (love & money) ~trine~ Saturn (stability):
This energy tends to make you very realistic about your relationships and is, therefore, a good time to talk about any recent challenges or future plans. Venus is the energy of love and money, so you will also be objective and somewhat conservative where both your relationships and finances are concerned. With this interaction with Saturn, I would suggest outlining a reasonable financial goals for the next 3 - 6 - 12 months. Relationships started under this influence should be fairly stable and more practical than passionate, but solid nonetheless.
3/6 ~ 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.
3/7 ~ Mercury (your voice) ~trine~ Saturn (reality): (2 of 3: 2/12 ~ 3/7 ~ 3/28)
This energy is good for deep thinking. You are sharp and your standards are high because you are in 'strategy mode'. This is a more solitary energy though, so communications with others may be hampered a bit. You may feel like people don't understand what you're trying to convey or that you're coming across more negatively than you intended. This is not a good energy for business negotiations. This energy makes you most critical of your Self, but it could trickle over onto others as well. Beware of a tendency toward pessimism and/or depression. Try to stay focused on all the blessings that you do have and all that you have accomplished instead of what's still on the list of things to do (in life). This energy is not intended to make you feel bad about all the things left yet to do, but encourage you to begin the necessary steps for manifesting your dreams. This energy just makes you focus on the practical side of manifesting. Clear the debris, and begin to lay a new, clean, solid foundation beneath your goals. It sharpens your ability to see the necessary steps with an unusual acumen.
3/7 ~ Mercury (communication) ~sextile~ Pluto (transformation): (2 of 3: 2/12 ~ 3/7 ~ 3/29)
This energy provokes the need to delve deep! In your outer life, you may ask probing questions about any proposals that come your way. It's not a suspicious thing, you just want the whole picture. In your inner life, you will feel brave about looking at the deeper issues you're going through at this time. You may feel ready to face things you haven't been ready to face before now. Also, as a result of gaining these new, deep insights, you'll want to spread the knowledge. You may have the urge to change other people's thinking on a given subject. That's great, if they are open and receptive, not to mention ready. But on the other hand, is it really your place to decide if another is ready or not? Be careful in spreading your new-found insights. Test the waters before you jump!
3/8 ~ Saturn (responsibility) ~sextile~ Pluto (power): (2 of 3: 12/26 ~ 3/8 ~ 9/21)
This is where endurance meets power and you feel this strong "can do" attitude. That said, both planets are sticklers for clearing debris FIRST before they allow (or support) new *building* in your life, circumstance or relationship. Ultimately, it is about you being responsible for your own power and recognizing how you use it to build your life. It's time to dig deep within your Soul to truly define what actually supports you. Hard work and focus are built in, but you have to define your terms as to what your ultimate goal is going to be. If you are clear, these two together back you up incredibly by helping you build on all that you've accomplished thus far. If you are not clear, then these two poke holes in every single plan you attempt until you first clear the past, own your choices and dedicate your Self to building something new that better reflects who you are here and now. Also, as much as these two working together push your Outer life along, it is also a good idea to use these combined energies to strengthen within. You can use that same energy of deep dedication to strengthen your emotions (because you're going deeper than usual), get more practical in your thinking (because you cannot hide from Truth forever) and even if you have personal physical goals, these two planets can deepen your dedication there too, just long enough to see physical results. Work it consciously, face any hard/dark Truths or prepare to have a big *mess* (customized to match your deepest fears) dumped on your doorstep that you must clean up before you can go anywhere.
3/9 ~ Mercury (expression) ~square~ Jupiter (truth): (2 of 3: 2/9 ~ 3/9 ~ 3/29)
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.
