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: September 21 - 27, 2014
9/21 ~ Venus (relationships) ~sextile~ Saturn (responsibility):
This energy has to do with your obligations within the context of relationships. They are not difficult obligations (in this case) but more emphasis is placed on enjoying serving those you love. This is also what I would call the "keep it real" energy, regarding relationships. This energy makes you want to really sit down and define your terms within your relationships (which I am a TOTAL advocate of). It's really hard to grow to the next level when each person is not clear on what the other expects. Of course, this starts with YOU knowing what YOU want/don't want and what you are willing to compromise about so you can articulate that clearly.
9/21 ~ 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.
9/25 ~ Jupiter (Education/Faith) ~trine~ Uranus (Awakening/Liberation):
(1 of 3: 9.25.2014 ~ 3/3 & 6/22.2015)
This is a delicious relief for some who have had enough of the Cancer/Aries challenges of the last year or more (personal security vs. independence), though developing the strength & tools to work it out was critical to maximizing the potential of the current blessing of *Fire* energy now that Jupiter has moved into Leo. We still have to deal with the independence/liberation issues that Uranus is 'cracking us open' to but hopefully, now that we've redefined personal security and deepened our faith in our own ability to sustain & protect ourselves, Leo energy encourages us to believe in ourselves and express more authenticity in every moment. It's almost like you rewired your internal system and now you'll be working on the outer expression & appearance (how it works in the world). I don't necessarily mean your looks or physical appearance, although upgrading that too is deeply supported, but this is more about what your unique energy radiates out to the world, and how others receive & respond to your energy. Think: Magnetize & Repel and then define your terms and invite your Higher Self to assist you.
9/25 ~ Jupiter (Education/Faith) ~trine~ Uranus (Awakening/Liberation):
(1 of 3: 9.25.2014 ~ 3/3 & 6/22.2015) --cont'd--
Jupiter & Uranus affect groups of people, so this energy is 'in the air'. If you have a lot of Fire in your chart, this is going to increase it, so you may want to use your Earth energy to ground & contain this fiery time, or at least take some precautions. If you don't have enough, this will really help you bring in the Fire energy consciously and balance certain aspects of your life out in a much-needed way. So, in general, these two getting together activate your consciousness in a huge way. There are sudden ah-ha moments and more clarity than you've maybe had access to in recent years. Uranus always activates us to learn or try something new or try something in a new way (to the tune of 3-6-9-12 years, a Jupiter Cycle). In this context (with Jupiter) you will want to express something you've only just recently discovered or realized is Truth for you, and you're bursting at the seams to show everyone how you and your consciousness has grown. That's great, but make sure your new Truth is grounded first. Think of the first trimester of pregnancy or a new sprout that hasn't totally rooted itself yet, new beginnings are delicate and require extra care & protection at first, so pace yourself with your new discoveries. This activation spans a year (June 2014 - June 2015) so pace yourself and pay attention to what comes up now (Sept 2014) that is re-activated or revised in March 2015 and finds its footing (roots) and finally gets its final polishing activation in June 2015, right around Summer Solstice (wow!).
See this as an 'unfolding new Truth' or new aspect of Self emerging. Get a feel for the Fire. It's a great time to expand your learning or education, get certified in something that you want to share with others, but try to avoid ideas (and people) with more flash than substance. The combination of Jupiter's luck (which is really a strong faith & following it) and Uranus' sudden, seeming out-of-the-blue-ness (which is really a sudden opening in your consciousness that allows you to see things in a completely new way) things will feel very "ordained" or magical or destined. Just stay grounded & present, because often when things seem 'too good to be true' - they are. What I'm talking about here is more about inner & outer alignment, faith & opportunity, when the path just opens before you and you have NO DOUBT that this is the (new) direction that you're supposed to take.
Also unique to 2014-2015 is the Leo/Aries combination. As long as we maintain integrity, lead with the heart, be creative & authentic, remaining free & independent is easier. However, if you are struggling with self-esteem/self-worth issues, as well as being independent and capable of defining who you are/what you want, then this is your year to face your issues square on and make some real progress. Just keep in mind that what these energies trigger for you are bringing these issues/relationships into the light to be transmuted and purified with this Fire. It's going to burn away all the excess (or illuminate it) and reveal your true beauty & innate value. Believe in your Self! Know that you are here for a reason and while your Path is unique for you, we are all sharing this journey of self-discovery & evolution of our planet. Activations will be personal, social & collective and during the next year or so, we will be creating containers for this *Fire* to burn safely & productively. Use it to connect to your Heart, Passion & True Purpose in life!
