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: May 22 - 28, 2016
5/22 ~ Sun (core essential Self) ~oppose~ Mars (purpose & desire):
This energy is a push-pull between what you think/say you want and how your choices reveal who you really are, between your ego and your will. For some, it can feel like a very confrontational energy that often manifests by awakening you to some deeper truth about your true nature (confronting a new aspect of Self in a whole new way). Of course, confrontations can also manifest with others who have opposing views of you or your situation. This is a personal awakening and a potent midpoint, the most powerful course-correcting time in any cycle, this one being a 2-year Mars cycle (2015-2017). Think about a new sense of identity that emerged in 2015 that you can feel is going to be completely formed or fully developed by 2017. Here, at the midpoint, how is it going? How does your life & choices reflect your true purpose & deepest desire for your life? It is a powerful time, and you will find out what you are made of and if your choices were made from your Higher Self or lower will. You may feel uncomfortable with what is revealed at this time, but you are deeply supported as you recognize your own unconscious extremes and find your new conscious middle ground. If you find yourself dealing with inner or outer struggles, try to pause and determine the depth of your desire to continue in that direction. Often we act out of habit and it is time to be truly present. The best way to use this energy is to own any ego issues, put them in perspective and decide to be more congruent with your thoughts, words and deeds.
5/24 ~ Venus (values & priorities) ~oppose~ Mars (purpose & desire):
This energy brings a balance & integration of your inner masculine & feminine energies. Your inner masculine is supposed to negotiate on your behalf, get your ideas in the world & maintain good boundaries, while your inner feminine is a guiding force that creates space to contain & nurture life and your creative babies. Because it is an opposition, it's time to check in with your SoulSelf to make sure you're not swinging between extremes, or trying to force issues rather than being open & receptive and going with the flow. Of course Venus & Mars brings relationships into the light, forcing issues of balance & integration within your relationships as well. Remember, as you change, others must change or go away. As you integrate more balance within you, maintaining balance with others becomes almost effortless. Also, if sexuality is an aspect of your relationship, then that too will undergo a balancing/re-balancing of sorts with this activation. Rather than project onto another, ask your Self some questions regarding your true desires and your true values. What is closest to your heart and fires you up from within, with no props, people or payments necessary?
5/26 ~ Jupiter (Truth) ~square~ Saturn (Purpose): (3 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.
