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: March 30 - April 5, 2014
3/28 ~ Mercury (communication) ~sextile~ Pluto (transformation):
This energy provokes the need to delve deep! In your outer life, you may ask probing questions about any proposals that come your way. It's not a suspicious thing, you just want the whole picture. In your inner life, you will feel brave about looking at the deeper issues you're going through at this time. You may feel ready to face things you haven't been ready to face before now. Also, as a result of gaining these new, deep insights, you'll want to spread the knowledge. You may have the urge to change other people's thinking on a given subject. That's great, if they are open and receptive, not to mention ready. But on the other hand, is it really your place to decide if another is ready or not? Be careful in spreading your new-found insights. Test the waters before you jump!
3/29 ~ Venus (relationships) ~trine~ Mars (independence):
This energy encourages independence within the context of relationships. It is an easy-going energy that paves the way for balance and reciprocity. Communication is good and exchanges are mutually beneficial. Any relationships started under this influence have a good chance at success whether personal or professional.
3/29 ~ Venus (values) ~square~ Saturn (foundation):
This energy can make you feel cool and reserved with loved ones. It is time to 'take stock' of your relationships and really evaluate the level of balance between giving and receiving. Business or personal - relationships must have a balance of give and take. You may feel more aware of your true independence in life - you cannot truly become "ONE" with anyone else. The goal is to become "ONE" within - integrating your human and Spirit selves in a healthy, balanced way. You may feel lonely or depressed but it's just the Universe forcing you to face how you interact with others and how you allow them to interact with you. It's good to periodically evaluate even the strongest relationship and check the foundation. Don't give in to (ego-based) fears, focusing on the lack and limitation, acknowledge and honor the strengths as well - in your Self, in each other and in the relationship. This is the best time to be alone and reflective because the insights you acquire through this process will help you in the future.
4/1 ~ Sun (core-self) ~square~ Jupiter (truth):
This is a powerful energy. With that comes the necessity of discernment - it provokes you to get lots of things accomplished and that's a good thing, however, beware of taking on more than you can actually handle. Having said that now, if you need that little "push" to get some things done, this is just the energy for you. It carries with it the optimism necessary to allow you to go beyond your normal limitations. There can be a tendency toward self-righteousness with this energy, but try to make it "self-directed" and you will benefit greatly from this energy. If you turn it on others, you may have some difficulties. Be open and receptive, you never know what you may learn along the way that could really help you later.
4/2 ~ Sun (core identity) ~conjunct~ Uranus (disruption):
This energy serves to provoke a shift within you, bringing out the desire to breathe fresh air into your idea of who you are and what you came to contribute. It may not be comfortable, especially if you are rigid in your habits and thinking, but it is necessary. Sometimes a little disruption serves to get you focused on what is really important to you. And at this time, change is in the air. It is far better to consciously plan to change things up in your world this week, than to play victim of circumstance. If you are working toward liberation with a refreshed attitude toward life, this energy helps tremendously and can connect you intuitively to what makes you feel free and independent. If you resist the shift, you will manifest other disruptions that are far less productive and far more frustrating.
4/2 ~ Mercury (your voice) ~trine~ Saturn (reality):
This energy is good for deep thinking. You are sharp and your standards are high because you are in 'strategy mode'. This is a more solitary energy though, so communications with others may be hampered a bit. You may feel like people don't understand what you're trying to convey or that you're coming across more negatively than you intended. This is not a good energy for business negotiations. This energy makes you most critical of your Self, but it could trickle over onto others as well. Beware of a tendency toward pessimism and/or depression. Try to stay focused on all the blessings that you do have and all that you have accomplished instead of what's still on the list of things to do (in life). This energy is not intended to make you feel bad about all the things left yet to do, but encourage you to begin the necessary steps for manifesting your dreams. This energy just makes you focus on the practical side of manifesting. Clear the debris, and begin to lay a new, clean, solid foundation beneath your goals. It sharpens your ability to see the necessary steps with an unusual acumen.
4/3 ~ Sun (your Source) ~square~ Pluto (transformation):
Now for the most potent of the transits for the week. You may encounter or even oppose powerful pressures and forces exerted upon you, both from without and within. The way you live and exert your energies will be tested today, perhaps forcing you to make radical changes in the areas of your life that you find are not working very well. The best way to use this influence is to let go of old patterns of behavior that recent events have demonstrated to be invalid. Holding on to them will only make your life more difficult, and if you give them up, you will have room for the positive creative changes that can take place now. In fact, one manifestation of this transit can be a powerful sense of having purged something from your life. Every one of us is being held accountable for our actions. Anything you have left undone or did poorly will come back to bite you (and demand that you do it right this time). The upside of this energy is that the parts of your life that ARE going well, will be your source of strength. Don't forget all your strengths and gifts!!
