The video version of this forecast, as read by Kelly, is available here.
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 from Kelly:
This week is special because, technically, there are NO ACTIVATIONS but that does not mean there isn’t energy to deal with. We are in such a *magical* portal right now, even if it doesn’t exactly “feel” that way in the moment. It is a critical point in our co-creation with the Universe. All is in Divine Order. Rather than repeat myself, I am going to strongly suggest you review this Eclipse Post HERE from last July 2019 because I really laid out the eclipses and the current cycle that is closing with the Eclipse Portal we’re in now, 2020. If you have strong Cancer/Capricorn/Aries/Libra, these are important catalysts for change in your individual world, but these are also referred to as the World Axis or World Points that, when they are activated, affect the globe. That is what makes this week’s Solar Eclipse special! So let’s dive in …
This *Sacred Season* is About:
Integration & Expansion of *Life*
Renewing Your Commitment
Annual Mid-Point / Integration
Acknowledging a Turning Point
Reviewing Your Choices & Decisions
Owning Your Power & Inner Authority
Processing & Planning the Next 6-months
Assessing & Integrating the Past 6-months
Honoring & Giving Gratitude for the Light
Tending to Sacred Space & Inner Nourishment
Using the Sacred Season to Process & Digest Life
Balancing Your Inner Feelings w. Your Outer Actions
Being More Consistently Responsible & Self-Sufficient
6/21 ~ Cancer New Moon Solar Eclipse + 1 of 2 New Moons in Cancer:
This one is special for a few reasons, not the least of which is falling ON Solstice, which amplifies the power of both the Eclipse and Solstice, they are only 8-hours apart, so we’re in a very potent Portal indeed! Summer Solstice is the MidPoint in the year, bringing another turn of the Wheel. It is the peak power of the *Light* before it surrenders, moving toward true completion of that which was seeded last Winter Solstice (Dec 2019). Permanently opposite each other, eternally balancing and re-balancing, integrating and re-integrating ~ the natural Life/Death/Life Cycle. This Sacred Season represents the time of year we should focus on the balance & integration of Light/Darkness ~ Yin/Yang ~ Feminine/Masculine ~ Inner/Outer ~ Cancer/Capricorn.
While Winter is a time of rest, replenishment and rejuvenation, Summer is the time of pouring forth, emptying out and fully birthing/releasing your creations (or whatever you’ve done with your creative energy thus far this year). This is the MidPoint of the Solar Year, a point of *culmination & choice* ~ a time to count your blessings, assess your creations, gather power, and access the courage (Sun) to move forward.
This is a balance of your outer world (Capricorn) and your inner world (Cancer) with emphasis on the Sacred Space where you fortify & replenish (Cancer) so you are able to contribute something significant (Capricorn). Be creative and operate from heart-center as you move through this Sacred Season, release what needs to be released and fertilize the next phase of the annual cycle.
Summer Solstice is time to celebrate the primal creative Force, the mother-of-all-mothers, Mother Earth and we can do that by acknowledging the blessed *Container, Nurturer and Protector* that She is for ALL Life on this planet. Connect to and honor your own instinctual nature at this time. And be mindful of the nutrient you take in to your body, mind, spirit and space. Summer is the Sacred Season of maximum *Light* ~ so be passionate and be present! And if you missed the Summer Solstice call I did with Shanta Gabriel, you can still Request the Replay HERE.
6/22 ~ Neptune Retrograde 20* PISCES:
Last year and this year, Neptune is standing still right at Solstice, emphasizing the renewal of our connection to the Sacred, as well as the dream & vision we’re living in this moment. Where the Moon represents the individual womb energy, Neptune represents the collective womb experience on a much higher level. So as a whole, we are all returning to the womb at this time, essentially preparing for (yet another) rebirth. It’s not going to be as tangible as some would prefer, from Neptune comes all things formless but very, very real – subconscious, dreams, magic, music, art, etc. While the ‘womb’ was the Source of nourishment & protection at one time, we annually renew that connection through Neptune Retro. It’s time to check in on the relationship between your Spirit and your Human form. Every year, we are supported to renew that which supports us on a spiritual level. It is where you need to return periodically for strength, nourishment & wisdom. The more regularly you are able to do this, the stronger the connection to your Spirit and true Purpose. When Neptune Retrogrades, it may be less shocking than Uranus or Pluto, but no less effective. It’s primary goal during a Retrograde is to gently dissolve personal boundaries and remind you that you are an Eternal Spirit in a Temporary Form. You start to realize your connection to the whole. Not a bad idea, but to some, it can be unsettling if they are rigidly holding on to the boundaries of a false sense of security. Where you might pursue your dreams & visions when it’s Direct, when it’s Retrograding, be creative, read, write, sing, dance – in private – for your own pure joy & delight, as well as for cleansing & releasing purposes. In addition to dreaming for the community, dream for your deepest SoulSelf as well. Connect to that original intent; that original person you were born to be, before you were imprinted by your family, culture or environment. Original Intent. When you can over the next 5-months, take some time to get back to your Center and renew your connection to Great Spirit.
*Neptune is a collective planet, which means that all those born in a 14-year period have Neptune in the same Sign and will share this *spiritual connection*. Jamie of PandoraAstrology.com calls it the ‘shared dream’ of each generation and has a fantastic, short article on the generations HERE.
6/25 ~ Venus Direct in GEMINI (until Aug 7th):
Ok we’re not out of the woods just yet! She doesn’t hit Cancer until August and we’re not even done with June yet. If you have any planets in Gemini/Sag/Virgo/Pisces, then you are feeling this hit your chart directly in some way. The Gemini/Sag Departments are getting the renewal of Initiation/Integration energy (and the lessons that go with it) and the Virgo/Pisces Departments are being pushed to grow, out of comfort zone and into new territory. Venus has just renewed herself and her energy and come back as Morning Star, which is more fiery, active & passionate about her Venus Issues: Love, Money & Magnetics ~ Relationships & Finances ~ Values & Priorities. We get this upgrade every 18-months but this one in Gemini is only every 8-years so we are building on 2004 and 2012, which was unique and special making 2020 the first hit since we really started seeing the Awakening of Humanity across the globe this way. I recommend this 5-min Audio HERE about *Endurance* and this 8-min Video HERE about the cross-over time we are in right now, between the last Venus Cycle in Libra/Scorpio 2018 and this one in Gemini 2020. Both of them would be great for you to review at this time, especially for my visual learners, you will love the follow up of visuals to much of what I covered on the call last night. I also attached a Bonus PDF HERE with your Good Prayer Days, which were the dates we discussed for April/May/June 2020 and the 4-card Tarot Guidance Audio HERE (27-min/mp3) that correlates to those special dates: 4/26 ~ 5/23 ~ 6/3 ~ 6/19. There is also a fantastic Article HERE by fellow astrologer, Dana Gerhardt of MoonCircles.com called: The Deeper Meanings of COVID-19 that I highly recommend. And most of you know, but perhaps we all need a reminder to check in with my Venus Article HERE where I go in-depth on the current Venus Cycle. Also, the Custom Guide is finished – it was a true labor of LOVE but also very much like birthing a baby and I am excited to offer that to anyone who wants to go narrow & deep on your values & priorities so you can navigate more consciously & effectively. Details HERE
6/27 ~ Mars in ARIES (until Jan 2021):
Last time Mars was just in Aries was Jan/Feb 2019 and I suspect that whatever was “up” at that time, in terms of your desire nature, your choices or your inner masculine may have given you some clues as to where you are strong and where you are weak in that aspect of your being. Now, it is entering this zone of renewal (to put it nicely) for the next 6-months. It is time to check in with how you negotiate on your own behalf, how you get your ideas in the world and how you hold good boundaries. The last time it lingered in Aries like this was 1988 so if you are old enough to remember what was up for you then, you may feel some reverberations in the same Area of Life (your Aries House) that you did back then. I do actually remember that one and it’s definitely reverberating again in my own life (I’d love to hear from you if you too are picking up a connection). Ultimately, I will write more when it goes Retro 9/9 until 11/13, but suffice it to say that whatever is up for you now, in terms of your desire nature, individual needs & ways of going about getting them met – is all up for renewal. Who you are and what you want has evolved, at a minimum, in the last 2-year Mars Cycle but we are about to initiate a new one, so it is time to check-in.
Also, we cannot underestimate the power of the Warrior Spirit that both Mars & Aries represent most of the time. Let’s channel this fiery energy into something useful & relevant and not burn ourselves out before we’ve figured out who we are and what we really want. I’m going to suggest you activate your Inner Spiritual Warrior that is a fearless leader and compassionate lover of LIFE that leads you to your own Higher expression of Truth & Purpose. But be aware that not everyone understands this energy, so part of the retrograde renewal is to see its big, ugly Shadow. I believe we can be proactive on our own behalf and get ahead of this energy by really asking the hard questions about your own Nature and activating your healing or integration process there. I personally am going to do some digging and research into my own patterns around sex and anger, which will also come up for many of you. So again, if you are more conscious about it, the less chance of hurting yourself or anyone else. This is ultimately about your independence & freedom too – what does that mean for you and look like for you? Let’s call in a new vision – on micro-levels: who you are and what you want – your purpose at this time … and on macro-levels: what it means to be a contributing citizen and responsible adult in a global family.
