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 4 - 10, 2016
9/7 ~ Sun (core essential Self) ~trine~ Pluto (purification & transformation):
This energy makes you want to get things done, by any means necessary and you may tend to come on a little strong - but it's all good. The work you want to do, is work that needs to be done and in doing it and facing things head-on, you will gain insights about your Self that fortify your foundation so that your life can evolve to the next level organically. This intense and powerful energy is transformative in nature and will provoke you to think deeply about your life; what you need, desire and deserve. You may find that some aspects of your life need to be reformed or released - go for it - this energy makes reform and release easier than usual. It's a good time to make an impression or an impact on others, but be sure to keep it on the Highest level possible. Any actions or statements used to manipulate others for selfish gain can/will backfire on you in a big way. This is a positive, uplifting, transformative energy - use it as such to clear the debris and create the life you were born to live.
9/7 ~ 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.
9/10 ~ Saturn (Reality) ~square~ Neptune (Dreams): (3 of 3: 11.26.2015 ~ 6.17.2016 ~ 9.10.2016)
This activation brings up many fears, illusions, doubts and can be a real downer. However, it doesn't have to be. You are questioning EVERYTHING but because it's Saturn, most of your fears & doubts may be around your professional security, your true purpose, your worthiness to achieve your dreams and/or your ability to manifest your dreams or accomplish your goals. Neptune is bringing in the fog so it is not the best time to make long-term commitments, though if you are solid and finally gaining traction at making those dreams a reality, this one could still activate doubts but hopefully, you have a practice in place that eradicates them before they take root. One more thing, Saturn is our physical limitations and Neptune is what is hidden, so it is a good time to be pro-active on your own behalf where your health is concerned. Get that overdue check up, take that overdue walk outside, breath deeper and more often. Balance your time at work with time in nature.
*NOTE* ~ This is a rare activation that requires more details if you want to work with them consciously. Saturn has a 28-year cycle and spends about 2.5 years in each Sign. Neptune has a 165-year cycle and spends about 14-years in each Sign. So they do not connect directly that often. A conjunction is the Initiation Point and the opposition is the MidPoint in the entire cycle. The Squares represent growth times, when it is often uncomfortable, but also leads to better circumstances ... if/when you pass the tests. (See Dates & Signs for this current cycle below.) A good rule of thumb is that you will be given the same test (albeit in various forms) over and over again, until you pass. That's Saturn! The Great Teacher, and a great planet & cycle to work with consciously. Neptune makes that a little more difficult, but no less valuable. It works on your consciousness, imagination, larger unifying concepts (union with the Divine) that are fun to imagine, dream & talk about but which will always require grounding to be useful & effective to your Self or others. Another reminder here is, you can change your consciousness in an instant. Your physical reality takes actual time & literal steps to reach its true form & full potential.

AfterThought ~ Now, you can look at the current activation (9.10.2016) within the context of the cycle, as well as your own life. Reflect on those years and Signs. Above explains the planetary interaction. You can also consider the Signs for the lesson & purpose of the activation. Saturn in Sag is asking that you live your Truth in every moment, in physical reality, and be responsible for that Truth, hold your own structure and recognize your resources and the true Source of your supply. Neptune in Pisces is asking that we find the Love & Unity with ALL Life and reminds us that - no matter what - ALL Life is eternally connected, so you and your life both matter. You are an added blessing in a very large & diverse family. You are part of a much larger Truth & Story, your relationship to Mother Earth and her life's blood (and thus, our life's blood as well) WATER (Neptune rules the oceans). So you can see how there are extremely important & relevant aspects of this very large 28-year cycle (within the context of the 165-year cycle) that we must take into account, however, any time Saturn is involved, we are assured that we will be bringing these larger unifying concepts into our physical reality somehow and grounding them in our body.
