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* 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: June 28 – July 4, 2020
6/28 ~ Mars (energy & action) ~sextile~ Saturn (endurance & stability):
This energy gives you a tremendous power booster to your drive to create stability, as you define it. You will be more willing to do the work, starting with a plan that is carefully thought out and then methodically carried out. Plan and Do! Not just one or the other, but both, which can eventually produce solid results. The rewards for your hard work or the return on your investment will reflect what energy you have put in to stabilizing your life. This energy should not be restrained but consciously directed. Excessive restriction (Saturn) may cause an explosion (Mars) down the line, whereas a solid base (Saturn) contains the fire (Mars) so it becomes useful, productive, and often, beautiful as well.
6/30 ~ Jupiter (consciousness, learning & belief systems) ~conjunct~ Pluto (purification & transformation):
(2 of 3: 4/4 ~ 6/30 ~ 11/12)
The highest possible expression of this energy is channeling your very passionate, intense energy into your Highest vision – Highest ideal – deepest personal Truth and receiving the fruits of such hard labor. There is power behind the current expansion and you are in a unique position to create your greatest vision or deepest fear. Both these planets force you to improve your Self, your life & your environment, usually stripping you of misconceptions and excess baggage along the way. This is a 13yr cycle, how did your life completely shift 13 years ago? This is your time to choose to co-create, to cultivate & commit to expressing your infinite potential. Dig deeper, there is more to you than you give your Self credit for being. This is your chance to completely redefine your Truth & Purpose. The worst possible expression of this energy is to become obsessed by a belief, try to force others to your way of thinking, blow things way out of proportion, magnify the darkness and prolong your trip through the Underworld. Jupiter insists we learn from such excavations of the Soul. Your deepest Truth is surfacing at this time, is it based in fear or faith? Under pressure, whatever is inside, comes out. It’s time to decide if you are going to believe in positive outcomes and the ability to turn your deepest wounds into your most trusted & earned wisdom.
6/30 ~ Mercury Rx (acumen) ~sextile~ Uranus (the Awakener):
(2 of 3: 6/5 ~ 6/30 ~ 7/22)
This energy says, it’s time to go with the flow – “new and different” being the flow. It wants to shake it up a bit – in a good way. However, if you feel like new and different is more like chaos and disruption, then you need to reflect and see if you aren’t being too rigid. Unwillingness to go with the (new) flow will make this energy harder to handle. This is also a good time to try to resolve any old issues or challenges – they are not going away without resolution and conscious release. Perhaps you’ve been trying the same thing over and over and it’s time to try something NEW – now is the time new ideas can/will come to you. Pay attention! Try to be open and receptive to unusual things, events or ideas and allow room for spontaneity, improvisation & thinking on your feet. You may think you are doing one thing and look up and being doing something completely different – be open to exploring the new path!
6/30 ~ Mercury Rx (communication & self-expression) ~conjunct~ Sun (core essential Self):
This energy will compel you to express yourself on many levels. Communication will be a focus, just make sure it is reciprocated. You will have access to some powerful energy that can (and probably will) make quite an impression on others (if you need to). This is a good time to travel if possible too. However, if not physically, then mentally and certainly within your own area, you will take in more information per square inch than usual. Pay attention! You may even gain the much-deserved recognition from others that you have worked so hard for.
7/1 ~ Sun (source & essential Self) ~sextile~ Uranus (freedom & individuality):
This activation will help you access a deeper sense of authenticity as everyday routine events may be enlightening this week. Anytime Uranus is involved ‘ah-ha moments’ are available, those sudden inspirations or the surprising clarity that changes everything is bubbling near the surface, you need but invite it in (to your conscious mind to be useful). Eventually, you will have to ground these breakthroughs in some physical form, but this energy supports the exploration of possibilities. Where can you use a dose of freedom & liberation? This energy also promotes ‘authentic living’ – you won’t be able to be fake or phony, nor tolerate it in others this week. Just remember that truth sometimes rattles those who would rather play ‘nice’ (keep up appearances/status quo) than face the facts, so watch out for rebelliousness, if not in you then in others. This is not a disruptive energy, except to those who resist change. Don’t fight it – embrace it! Change is good, it means you are growing!
7/1 ~ Saturn Re-Enters CAPRICORN (until Dec 17th):
This is the final pass for 28-years to come so let’s make it count. This Area of Life (your Capricorn House) has been getting an upgrade via Saturn since Dec 2017. How is it going? What have you learned? What have you made “real” during this time? This energy has so much to do with our basic fundamentals of being responsible, organized & accountable for our choices. It has also been an intense lesson of how we give away our authority to others, bosses, partners or corporations & governments. But hopefully, we have also stabilized something useful that we can now build on going forward. It is also good to consider the effect of Saturn in Capricorn on your Aries/Libra & Cancer Depts as well because when one changes, it will automatically shift the others too.
So I just did some digging so that I could refer you to any Saturn in Capricorn posts I’ve done since Dec 2017 and I found some interesting threads that totally qualify as *Relevant Reflections*. Also, now with the new posts, there will be an audio feature that wasn’t available back then. It was extremely pivotal every time Saturn went Retrograde or Direct so I suggest we review those months: May & Sept 2018 – 2019 – and now 2020 also bring our lessons & blessings for that House or Area of Life. It turns out those posts were done on my free wordpress which is still up but is drowning in ads so I am re-posting them below for your convenience. I have put together a little retrospective that is worth reviewing to determine how to get all the good out of Saturn in Capricorn before it moves on. You may wonder why I am so “on it” with this but last time it was there (1988-1990) which was life-changing for me and many others and the reverberations have been with us for 28+ years and have now run their course. I want to be super-aware, conscious & grounded in my authentic self to maximize the potential here for this energy which is rearranging my fundamentals: home/work/individual/relationships and no one is exempt. It is happening where Aries/Libra/Cancer & Capricorn are for us all.
