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 8 – 14, 2018
4/10 ~ Sun (illumination) ~square~ Pluto (transformation):
This is a challenge to grow out of your comfort zone and into new territory. That said, with Pluto in Capricorn (2008-2024), twice a year for these 16-years, when the Sun is in Aries (Spring) and Libra (Fall), we get an opportunity to grow & change in fundamental departments of life: self vs other and home vs work. In this case, and during these years, we are literally changing how we do ALL of this. Each year builds on the previous and we are now 8-years into the 16-year process of transformation - that is the MidPoint, an incredibly potent point in time & space. It is here that you have the most information to consciously work with as you prepare for the next 8-years, and ultimately, what you would like to get out of your conscious efforts and dedication. Sun helps us clarify and when working with Pluto, it is usually what is NOT working, what has run its course and is ready to be composted into new Life, new growth and a new direction (for Self). Pluto is the Purifier, distilling things back to their true and original essence, fight that and it can be painful, work with it consciously and it can be transformative and will heal at the deepest root of any challenge. You can use this activation to honor that which has become obvious, or is highlighted in the here & now and purge or purify this energy. You are deeply supported for releasing old patterns and setting new conscious practices into action. Tie up loose ends, close multiple chapters, mourn & move on. As you do that, you will feel lighter & brighter and more grounded in your true Self, your evolved Self.
4/11 ~ Venus (feminine & receiving) ~trine~ Mars (masculine & giving):
Venus rules your values & priorities where relationships with love & money are concerned, your inner Divine Feminine that innately knows how to co-create with nature, what to cultivate and nurture to full development. Mars rules your desire nature and your inner Divine Masculine, which is responsible for maintaining your personal boundaries, getting your ideas into the world and negotiating on your own behalf. When you are channeling both through you in a balanced way, what you create and how you move through the world becomes a beautiful dance or interesting story. The trine is a blessing of ease & grace, an easy-going energy that paves the way for balance & reciprocity and encourages independence within the context of relationships. Communication is usually smooth at this time and exchanges can be mutually beneficial. Any relationships started under this influence have a good chance at success whether personal or professional.
4/12 ~ Venus (essence & natural beauty) ~sextile~ Neptune (consciousness & vision):
This energy connects your true values & priorities to the planet of dreams, mysticism & other dimensions (Neptune). You have an opportunity to gain some traction on making your vision tangible just by connecting to the essence you want to experience. Feel the feeling and that will lead to the physical manifestation later. This energy helps you believe in what is possible and supports any artistic expression or active practice (vision boards, affirmations etc) that helps you hone the actual vision. Steps and strategies are for other planets, Venus only cares about the essence of nature & love and Neptune is definitely not who you'd work with for 'steps/strategies' ; -) Tune in to the natural beauty around you and suspend any usual inner dialogue for a day or two (as soon as you can) so you can connect to some inspiration guided by your own Heart & Soul (from the inside-out).
4/14 ~ Jupiter (Your Truth & Story) ~sextile~ Pluto (Purification & Transformation):
(2 of 3: 1/15 ~ 4/14 ~ 9/12)
This energy brings expansion & regeneration, allowing you to gain serious traction and get big things done. On a personal level, your Truth & Story is due for a renewal. You’ve grown, your life has changed & your consciousness has expanded in recent years and these two are going to assist you in making great strides, in a short amount of time because of your evolution. This is concentrated growth & development with incredible support for overall integrity. Robert Hand says, “This combination symbolizes regeneration to a higher plane of existence” on many levels. So this could also usher in a renewed sense of deep faith in yourself, life and your 'process'. Because Jupiter expands your consciousness, this activation can stimulate a spiritual rebirth, as well as a literal one (improved environment). This is when you learn (or begin to *know*) something that utterly changes you, on a Soul level, and you are never the same. So you can also look for your Story to evolve to its natural next level as your awareness is expanded and you cannot go back (read: you can’t un-know what you know). This is an opportunity between two major energies, a social planet (Jupiter) and a collective planet (Pluto), to come together in a positive, effective way. Ultimately, this activation will affect you and those around you because Jupiter makes things bigger and Pluto permanently changes things. So if you're ready for big (and permanent) change, these two support you and your efforts.
4/14 ~ 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!
