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 28 - May 4, 2013
4/28 ~ Sun (core Self) ~oppose~ Saturn (reality):
This energy is a push-pull between who you are & who you want to be; between what you "want" to do & what you "have" to do. I always tell people, do what you "gotta do" so you can do what you "wanna do". It may not be the easiest path, but it's definitely worth it for the peace of mind it brings. You may swing between extremes of fulfilling all your obligations to the neglect of your Truth & Purpose ~ OR neglecting your obligations and doing whatever you choose, which only means those obligations will be there when you get to them and they will have most likely increased by the time you do. Balance is the key! This energy reminds us to practice "work before play". Another expression of this energy is a sense of loneliness & isolation. Don't indulge those thoughts too long, it's counter-productive, a distraction & waste of time. This too shall pass. Plus, that's not the point of this energy. The perfect thing to do at this time is to work on a project alone that is really important to you, but personal and private. Focus ~ you're on to something solid.
5/1 ~ Mars (energy) ~oppose~ Saturn (stability):
This energy is a mixed blessing so watch any extreme swings one way or another. Mars is all about energy, passion and movement and Saturn is all about stability, structure and foundation. When they are opposite each other, there can be a beautiful blend of energy and passion behind solid, productive work that yields long-term benefits. However, if you swing to petulant Mars, "I want my way!" ~ Saturn's response is, "It will be done the RIGHT way or not at all!" This energy brings lessons either way, usually around anger issues or long-standing upsets. You may feel "held back" although nothing could be further from the truth. The reality is you have to do certain ‘first things first' and if/when you do things in "order", success usually follows. If/when you rush and do things without thinking or planning, then mistakes inevitably follow and you have to do things over again. This is also the half-way mark of a 2yr cycle that gives you the opportunity to check in and see how things are progressing and make any necessary adjustments so you are successful at the culmination of the current cycle. (Look to the signs for more specifics.)
5/1 ~ Sun (core-identity) ~trine~ Pluto (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 yourself you can apply in the future. 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 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.
5/3 ~ Mercury (expression) ~sextile~ Neptune (dreams):
This is a great energy for being imaginative and intuitive. This is not an intellectual energy, you will have to rely on other senses, like feeling (intuition). You may be very perceptive as to what others are thinking or feeling. Try to avoid work that requires any attention to detail. Allow your creativity to flow freely without censoring what comes through you at this time. You can organize it later. This is the energy to CREATE!
