Weekly Forecast: May 24 - 30, 2015

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 24 - 30, 2015

5/25 ~ 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.

5/25 ~ Mars (desire) ~square~ Neptune (illusions):

This can be an annoying energy, to say the least. Basically, you may be confronted with challenges which are a direct result of earlier choices. These are the kind of choices you eventually realized were wrong and "hoped" the consequences would somehow pass you by. Not. You may feel very discouraged, possibly depressed, and be filled with fear and doubt. The key to getting through this energy is to take a step back, reflect on your choices and what led you to this point and, as objectively as possible, evaluate what went wrong. The tendency with this energy is to want to give up completely on the path you have chosen when all that is necessary is a little tweaking. Identify the aspect that is causing the conflict. If you don't feel that you can be objective enough or that you struggle with identifying this aspect, enlist two other people to give you their opinion and follow your gut instinct on the direction to take from here. The other temptation with this energy is to be deceptive - either to your Self or others. Either way - don't give in - it will only come back to bite you (harder) later. Your physical energy is likely to be low as well. Do not force your Self to do anything you are truly not "feeling" right now. Instead, mediate on what action may be necessary when your energy returns. Be still. Avoid confrontations with others as it is just the conflicting energy kicking and it is not likely that a resolution can be found under this influence regardless. My personal two-cents about these two planets (Mars & Neptune) in a difficult angle, is to reflect on what actions (Mars) have been taken (and NOT worked) toward the fulfillment of your dreams (Neptune) - and start your "tweaking" there.

5/27 ~ Mercury (thoughts) ~conjunct~ Mars (energy):

I have to preface this with two things: (1) is when Mercury is involved, it is a relatively fast-moving energy. (2) is when Mars is involved, being the lower version of power (Pluto being the Higher version), reminds us that with power, also comes responsibility. Now, that all said, the positive expression of this energy is that you can control your mind and direct it with passion, getting tangible results. This heightens your intellectual ability and mental capacity (for better or worse). You will be able to clearly articulate your thoughts and you should have quick, effective responses. If you maintain your integrity, this is an excellent time to ‘fuel' major creative expression. If this energy manifests is negative side, it can make you petty and combative, arguing over nonsense and wasting precious time and energy in ego control-dramas. And if it is not coming FROM you, it is just as possible to be coming AT you (from others). This is the best time to put your energy (Mars) behind your thoughts, ideas and words (Mercury). The power of this pairing is that they are occupying the same space, essentially energizing each other.

5/29 ~ Mercury (communication) ~square~ Neptune (dissolution):

This is a mixed blessing energy. On one hand, it's good for spiritual study and giving your dreams a little energy (if your schedule permits). On the other hand, it makes for major miscommunications between people. Try to THINK before speaking, because if it's possible to misunderstand or not 'get it' all together, it will happen this week. Be careful not to let "longing" for your dreams to come true, distort your judgment and mislead you into believing the illusion. With this energy, some people will deliberately deceive and others have to be careful not to be misled. Stick to the facts or stay quiet, for now. You may even be inclined to withhold information to avoid a confrontation - don't do it. Communicate with your Self and God today, otherwise plan to be very clear in explaining yourself to others so there are no misunderstandings.

5/30 ~ Mercury (communication) ~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.

Wow, Kelly - Thanks for the very clear and very helpful guidelines, and even warnings, for this week! It seems like a very challenging week, from all the astro reports I've read - definitely necessary to be on alert and very careful and intentional. My goodness!!! I will breathe a sigh of relief at the end of this week. : ) Love and Hugs, Laura
