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: August 12 – 18, 2018
8/12 ~ Mars Retro Re-Enters Capricorn (until 9/10):
Mars Retro is special because it only happens every 2-years but because of its regularity, we too can benefit from a review of our personal desires every 2-years. Consider how your nature has evolved over the last 2-years specifically. What do you want now that you maybe weren’t even aware of then? Or what do you no longer desire that was really important 2-years ago? As Mars lingers on the line between Capricorn & Aquarius, we are investing extra time & energy in a single area that relates directly to our freedom & responsibilities. It’s time to renegotiate with those who matter and let folks know what you truly want at this time. Mars goes Direct 8/27 and your energy will slowly pick up speed and move on from this point. Be sure you have clarified what you want so the Universe can respond. I always say a Mars Retro allows us to make a 6-8 month investment for 18-month return. If you have planets in either Fixed or Cardinal Signs, you are being directly affected by this Mars Retro and now is the time to check in and set your intentions.
8/18 ~ Mercury (thoughts) ~sextile~ Venus (art & beauty):
This energy turns your thoughts and ideas toward how you feel, what inspires you with love and beauty. This is a great time to be particularly creative or do something related to the arts. It is best to keep it light and let go of your mundane burdens just for a time. Pleasure reading, walk on the beach, a play or museum are all good things to do at some point this week.
8/18 ~ Mercury Direct at 11* LEO:
You’ve now had a review and hopefully, a reconnection with your own Heart so that you are expressing your unique creativity and sharing your authentic self with others. It is time to clear out the thought patterns that debilitate you with fear & self-doubt. You are more supported than ever to think for yourself and offer your gifts to a community of like-hearted Souls. As Mercury moves on and into Virgo, you will begin to weave these new ideas into the fabric of your everyday life.
