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 26 – September 1, 2018
8/26 ~ Pisces Full Moon:
Annual opportunity to Release any/all *Illusions/Delusions* about who you are or how you're living. Inner Truth must match Outer Reality, we are always encouraged to be congruent. In other words, my latest observations have been: those who are most in-alignment within & without, those who are living authentic lives, are moving through with a relative amount of ease & grace. Please don't confuse this with not having any challenges, loss or disappointment, just that navigating and decision-making is a lot easier when you KNOW Who You Are and What You Want ... while those who are of a particular Nature within, but living a life completely contrary to that Nature, are getting slammed energetically. It can feel like going to a lavish party, having a great time (Illusion) and then *unexpectedly* receiving the bill (Reality). We are all "paying" for our own *Illusions/Delusions*, to the degree that we each have them. Big illusion - big bill. Small delusion - small price. Either way, you're accountable so use this Full Moon to truly look at that which is being most brightly illuminated for you personally and use your intuition to guide you.
8/26 ~ Venus (your values) ~square~ Pluto (transformation):
This activation brings intensity and it challenges you to grow (out of comfort zone, into new territory) where your relationships & finances are concerned. You've probably already felt it coming (the shift in your relationship or financial situation), well, it's here now, so you can be proactive on your own behalf or you can suffer the consequences of postponing the inevitable. (You may have heard me say: Pay now or pay double later. That applies to this transit too.) The natural reaction may be to try to hold on to the job or relationship, but try not to give in to that temptation. Pluto intensifies everything and the more you resist the necessary purification & change that Pluto brings, the more painful it usually is. It is better to clarify your values & priorities and choose change, rather than have it forced (more Pluto) upon you. Either way, once the dust settles, you should be better off because things either change for the better or go away altogether making room for something new and more in-alignment with your values & priorities of 'now'.
8/27 ~ Mars Direct at 28* Capricorn:
It’s a good time to review the last couple of months – to last couple of years. What do you no longer want to be responsible for? What no longer supports the foundation you are cultivating in the here & now? How have things organically shifted in your desires, choices & actions? You may have been blocked or delayed from forward movement but now the energy will resume forward motion and start stimulating the rest of your chart, giving you a chance to integrate whatever Mars stirred up for you personally. It is customized for everyone and no one is exempt. I usually encourage folks who are highly driven and have a need to move & accomplish on a regular basis to learn Mars’ rhythm in your own life. If you give your Self permission to honor your desires, as well as the fact that they change & evolve as you do, then you are living a more authentic life automatically. Now is the time to define the terms of what you deeply desire, what you are willing to do to acquire that and what it will take to maintain it. Mars in Capricorn or Aquarius is very driven toward a specific goal of achieving a better future for one & all, which means we can use this extended stay to build strength, fortitude & consciousness about how we use our own energy to create our own lives, and thus affect & contribute to the collective life.
8/28 ~ Mercury (expression) ~square~ Jupiter (truth): (3 of 3: 7/9 ~ 8/11 ~ 8/28)
This energy challenges you to integrate your smaller vision with the larger vision for your life. On one hand, you can see the big picture in new ways, but on the other hand, you may not be very interested in the details that bring it about. This is another good one for expanding your consciousness and thinking outside the box, but as the insights come into your conscious awareness, be mindful of the steps it will take to make your ideas a reality. This activation is also great for course-corrections where your ideas are concerned and will open you up to learning something new or bring in a crucial piece of information, just keep in mind that you will have to stabilize anything you start and probably have to review some details down the road because of something you overlooked in your enthusiasm for the new Truth revealed from within.
