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: April 21 - 27, 2013
4/21 ~ Mercury (expression) ~square~ Pluto (transformation):
This energy is a tough, yet powerful one. It's Highest expression would be to focus on your inner discovery and development. It enables you to look beneath the surface to some core drives and gain some valuable insights and thus, choose a plan of action based on your discovery. You will want to know all the hidden meanings behind decisions you've made or want to make soon. Dig - you will find more than you think you're ready for, but apparently the Universe thinks differently! Pay attention and try not to worry about what anyone else thinks or believes. This energy's flip-side is to make you obsess over one particular idea and try to force others to your way of thinking. That is a bottomless pit - you cannot truly change the way other people think - you can only change the way you think and hope it enlightens others along the way ... and it will, for those who are tuned in to your level. Try to only focus on you and your direction.
4/22 ~ Venus (values) ~oppose~ Saturn (reality):
There is a push-pull between your true values and your current reality. You may find yourself questioning what is or is no longer important to you. Or you may find yourself facing some hard and unavoidable truths. Do not feel sorry for yourself and do not take it out on others. It is time to take responsibility for making new choices here and now today, looking back will only trip you up. Challenges may center around commitments you've made out of obligation and a sense of duty, rather than because you actually wanted to contribute. You can use this energy to align your reality with the values in your heart. Do not allow the anxiety associated with change to keep you from making some important decisions at this time. If you give in to your fears, you could get caught up in martyrdom and victim consciousness. Deciding what you want, committing to the work it will take to manifest and get to work! You can integrate these energies by infusing your work with some heart and creative fire, you will be richly rewarded if you do.
4/23 ~ Mercury (your voice) ~sextile~ Jupiter (expansion):
This energy can make you focus on the larger issues in your life. Your dreams are tapping you on the shoulder, demanding some attention. Mundane issues do not concern you, you want to figure out how to create the life you've been imagining. This energy also provokes within you the understanding that being generous naturally attracts generosity to you (and your cause). You're focused on the big picture and overall patterns which have lead you to this point. Feeling clear, sharp, alert and optimistic, your realize that anything you can imagine, you can achieve.
4/24 ~ Venus (relationships) ~trine~ Pluto (transformation):
This energy tends to "intensify" relationships and/or emotions. You may feel extremely drawn to someone, emotionally as well as physically. You may feel the intense need to express your love, mentally, emotionally and physically. This energy is great for bringing deeper insights to the surface, which ultimately should strengthen any relationship. A new relationship started under this influence will have an intensity about it, as will any form of expression (artistic and otherwise).
4/24 ~ Sun (identity) ~sextile~ Neptune (vision):
More sharp intuition available this week. You are able to step outside your Self and see how others' needs are important. You may feel the urge to be more giving and understanding than usual. This is also a good time for spiritual development. It won't be enough to merely know something, you will want to know the "larger" meaning. Your energy may be naturally low, that's an indication that it's time to focus more inwardly.
4/26 ~ Mars (action) ~sextile~ Neptune (dreams):
This energy puts action behind your dreams! This is the perfect time to reflect on what you really want and if the path you've chosen thus far still serves your ultimate goals. Your intuition is heightened and you're more alert and ready to act on the information you receive. This information is trying to point you toward a more enlightened plan (than you have right now) for manifesting your Truth and Purpose. It's also a good time to help others realize their dreams in a more tangible way. This energy is that of the volunteer, idealistic and committed to change!
