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 4 – 10, 2018
3/4 ~ Sun (essential Self) ~conjunct~ Neptune (delusions & illusions):
This transit tends to make you very sensitive (rational or not) to others. If you are one of those people who tends to put everyone else's needs before your own, watch out, because this makes that urge even stronger. Be aware of two things: (1) most times people who focus so much on others, to the exclusion of their own needs, is because there is something about their own life they do not want to face; and (2) you could get lost in your so-called altruism to the point where you lose touch with reality. This energy is best used alone to meditate and contemplate your own world unless you can be completely detached in your charity work. I use this little motivation to decide - is your life so perfect and abundant that you can afford to spend so much time and energy on another's life? If so, GREAT! Go for it! If not, however, then "charity begins at home" - work on YOU!
3/4 ~ Mercury (ideas, thoughts & concepts) ~conjunct~ Venus (values, priorities & resources):
This energy encourages you to see the Divine Order or the unifying theme running through the events of your life ~ good, bad & indifferent as well as past, present & future. This is an initiation of new values around communication, self-expression and the value of your ideas. You may finally be able to express ideas that have been percolating in your head, some people say "I love you" at this time, or articulate their feelings in deeper, more expressive ways. It's really *juicy* for your Inner Artist, this is the beginning of expressing your creative ideas in altogether new & different ways than ever before. Allow your Imagination to free-flow. Play with ideas with no attachment to outcome. Take advantage and explore all that this energy stirs within you, but don't give in to over-thinking/processing things. These connections are richer, giving you access to deeper personal growth & development through a new understanding of how all the events of your life work together for good, ultimately. You can see the necessity of certain challenges and clearly see your own personal mastery thus far. Celebrate and choose to create some new thought patterns that integrate and reflect more beauty throughout your life.
3/8 ~ Jupiter Retrograde @23* SCORPIO:
Jupiter goes Retrograde annually, providing an opportunity to check in with the Area of Life (House) where it is extending its stay. This year, it’s your Scorpio House, so rebirth & transformation is all part of it. Jupiter helps us learn & understand things on a deeper level, and in Scorpio, it is the deepest possible, Soul level. Review what has come into your conscious awareness during Oct – March because March – July 2018 will facilitate the review, and ultimate reconnection with your SoulSelf and your deepest, core beliefs. Once-in-12-years, we get to do this kind of renewing deep dive. I recommend you review the following post from Oct.
Jupiter enters SCORPIO (10.10.2017 until 11.8.2018):
Y’all know *cycles & patterns* is my thang ; -) so I’d be remiss if I didn’t give you a little good Jupiter-JuJu to work with as its one year journey through Scorpio kicks off! Jupiter (and Saturn = Your Truth & Purpose) are great to work with on a personal level, even though they are Social Planets that affect large groups of people. As in now, Jupiter traversing Scorpio will most intensely activate those with Taurus/Scorpio and Leo/Aquarius in their chart. It will expand the issues related to your Scorpio House and it will educate you through the Planets it activates throughout its journey.
No one is exempt, this is an opportunity for everyone to give some time & energy to consciously co-creating with this, often, beneficial planet. It can bring luck & good fortune but that has more to do with your optimism and the Universe’s timing colliding at the same time, than random luck. Really, the truth is, you’ve learned a LOT over the last 12-years and now you will be supported to expand to the next level organically. What used to be ‘true’ may not be true anymore and what was never true could actually be possible now. Truth is fluid and Jupiter helps us expand our consciousness, teaching through expansion (making things bigger) and story-telling, theatre & games (among other things). In Scorpio, it’s time to activate the power of your imagination to conjure a completely NEW Vision for your Self, your people and your planet. It’s time to redefine your terms around resources (time, energy & money) and how they (and you) relate to power. We cannot shrink from digging in the Scorpio depths, it’s where the treasures lie!
For a frame of reference, the following years are related this Jupiter cycle which is rebooting. Most recently, the years: 2014-15 (Leo) ~ 2011-12 (Taurus) ~ 2009 (Aquarius) ~ 2006 (Scorpio). 2009 was pivotal as we had what I referred to as the *Healing Trinity* = Neptune/Chiron/Jupiter in Aquarius. If you initiated, integrated or were tested on Jupiter-related issues during those years, this one’s for you! I am including my Jupiter Tools which I created for my Your Soul’s Path Series. You may have heard me say that when we are IN the activation, it is hard to know exactly what transformation is happening. However, once the activation passes, the clarity starts rolling in! So you will now be able to harvest your Libra Blessings from last year, as you begin to clear the Scorpio karmic debris to reveal powerful new blessings of this new year-ala Jupiter ; -)
When Jupiter travels through each House, it will certainly liven things up! The following is some of the different things activated by its presence …
Dream of the future / make future plans
Expand your field of knowledge / go to school
Your desire to improve on all levels
Seek Truth, wisdom and understanding
Take risks which build your character
Are most optimistic and enthusiastic
Connect to a larger, more philosophical perspective
Activate your Spiritual Quest
Get your PhD in *YOU*
Access your Truth & Purpose
Things to beware of as Jupiter travels thru each House …
Over-expansion / making things bigger than they are / exaggerate
