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.
Note from Kelly:
We have quite a week, energetically, so you may want to grab a cup of tea for this one and just take it all in first, then circle back to the alignments that most resonate for you personally. Also, pace yourself and try to get some time to yourself to really explore these energies because they are full of *Initiations & Opportunities* that you don’t want to miss being distracted by things out of your control or going on around you! IN-Joy!
Weekly Forecast: March 8 – 14, 2020
3/8 ~ Sun (essential Self) ~conjunct~ Neptune (delusions & illusions):
This transit tends to make you very sensitive to other people and energies around you (real & imagined). 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 objective & detached in your charity work. I use this question to help me determine my own true motivation – is my life so wonderful and abundant that I 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” – and the work begins with YOU!
3/8 ~ Venus (relationships, love & money) ~conjunct~ Uranus (awakening & liberation):
This is an initiation of some radically new values & priorities which have bubbling within you for a while now. You are supported to shift, without apology. Remember, when you change, everything/one around you naturally changes or goes away. Same-old, same-old will not do at this time and you are supported for thinking outside the box, especially where conscious equal partnership is concerned. We are in a new era, the Aquarian Age, that supports the individual within the context of the community. We are all learning how to do that on micro-levels, within our own individual relationships, as well as on macro-levels in the world. Use this activation to release resistance and open to the new, shake things up and look at your life from a completely different perspective and see if you don’t find renewed value in some places and others that have completely run their course and can easily be released. Finally, pay close attention to any innovative ideas that come up around this time – they could be useful down the line.
3/9 ~ VIRGO Super/Full Moon:
This Virgo Super/Full Moon is a potent time to release the need to ‘keep up appearances’ (of beauty or order in your life). Instead, focus on actually healing what is imbalanced or integrating what is fragmented. Then, rather than a temporary fix, you can and will begin to radiate more beauty & order naturally, from the center of your Being. Virgo is the energy of fasting and purifying, so if you feel the need to do that, it applies to all levels, physical, spiritual, mental and emotional. Fast from negativity, internal or external, and purify your priorities. There is something you must be willing to release from your system to have what you want and something you must integrate into your system to BE who you ARE. This is the completion of an annual cycle so you can ground your intentions this Full Moon for the completion work on the personal/individual level, in preparation for birthing a new cycle of working & playing with others on Collective level this Spring.
As we get to the Virgo Super Full Moon (3/9), we can really assess all that we put in motion around Fall Equinox 2019, and release that which is not falling into a *natural rhythm* by now. What new system or routine did you activate back then? and where does it stand now, 6-months later? Much of what is revealed at this time, will also help deepen your dedication with the Sag Last Qtr (3/16) because clearly, there is more work to do to align your Internal Truth with your External Reality. Check in with the reality of the various relationships that you are experiencing at this time. Any ‘friction’ you may be going through is necessary to help you grow & evolve into the Pisces New Moon (2/23) New Vision. There may be an intense ‘ending vibes’ to the usual Initiation of a new lunar cycle. But maybe ‘ending’ isn’t the right word, think completion ~ surrender ~ full circle and trust that ALL is Divine, even if it doesn’t all make total sense to you yet. Mercury Retro in Pisces too has helped assist your process this Spring. It’s time to run everything through your own *Internal Processor* before getting to the action/decision-oriented Aries energy of Spring Equinox 2020.
3/9 ~ Mercury Direct in AQUARIUS:
Woohoo! Onward & upward we go, now that Mercury is forward again. Any time you’re in another dimension, when you return home, there is what I refer to as the “re-entry period” when you re-acclimate your Self to where you are and if/when you’re lucky, you also get “integration time” to anchor any recent revelations. That is what a Mercury Shadow period is like. It’s going to move through Aquarius and back into Pisces, and gets to Aries on April 10th, when you will really feel the shift. Meantime, this is an excellent time to check-in with your Self and confirm what you are creating for 2020 because it is getting underway now. We have some huge *Initiations* and both Venus & Mars Retrograding this year ~ plus, Saturn shifting into Aquarius and Jupiter meeting him there by the end of the year. So let’s take advantage of every Mercury Retro this year, because it is going to be the most productive *processing time* we get in a year full of monumental changes and unprecedented initiations.
3/11 ~ Sun (core Self) ~sextile~ Jupiter (optimism):
This energy is sometimes considered “lucky” but the success you achieve under this influence, is more likely due to a positive outlook and clear vision of who you are and what you want. Your life is expanding, your self-understanding is deepening and it will be easier to be around other people of higher consciousness, improving things and creating opportunities that benefit a larger number of people. There is a healthy dose of optimism around some grand plan, and things are moving, but make sure to do the foundation work to support this larger vision as it manifests in reality. If you are a teacher/guide/leader of any sort, this energy supports your group efforts, so giving workshops, seminars or new classes is totally supported and will benefit you, while serving others.
3/14 ~ Mars (action) ~sextile~ Neptune (dreams):
This energy puts action behind your dreams! This is the perfect time to reflect on what you really want and if the path you’ve chosen thus far still serves your ultimate goals. Your intuition is heightened and you’re more alert and ready to act on the information you receive. This information is trying to point you toward a more enlightened plan (than you have right now) for manifesting your Truth and Purpose. It’s also a good time to help others realize their dreams in a more tangible way. This energy is that of the volunteer, idealistic and committed to change!
3/14 ~ Sun (core identity) ~sextile~ Pluto (transformation):
This is a healthy, positive, transformative energy. You will have access to energy that will help you change your current circumstance for the better and/or clear up an issue that has been challenging you for a while now. It’s great for purifying, cleaning & clearing your personal space, as well as organizing your life in general. You may have to examine the “big picture” to see where an adjustment, for the good of all involved, is necessary. If you’re not feeling up to working on outer issues, this also gives you the opportunity to do some introspective thinking and deep self-reflection. Superficial once-overs will not do, you must address the root cause for where you find yourSelf at this time in your life and decide if it is working for you or against you.
