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: May 17 – 23, 2020
5/17 ~ Sun (source & essential Self) ~trine~ Jupiter (expansion):
This is a blessing of Source energy fueling your biggest dreams & visions for your life, this lifetime. You are encouraged to take advantage of the good *vibe* available when these two get together to expand your life’s direction in a big way. This activation is often blessings from previous dedication. You’ve been moving in a certain direction, and it’s like the Path has gotten wider & deeper now, allowing you to connect some huge pieces of your personal Story *together* in a new way. It’s great for learning & exploring anything that will support your forward movement. Some may use the good vibe to veg-out and relax, which for some, may be best. However, if you are stepping up to new levels of your own consciousness, this energy totally supports you as you integrate it all. It is an enthusiastic, optimistic energy that will open doors for you, depending on your attitude. It will allow you to see the big picture and the next necessary step toward your goals at this time.
5/20 ~ Venus Rx (love, finances & relationships) ~square~ Neptune (illusions & delusions):
This energy is great for creative flow. If you are artistically inclined in any way, you will have access to an energy that may allow you to create something amazing. Dig deep and allow your Self to free-flow! This energy can also challenge relationships (personal or professional) to ‘keep it real’ in some way and ones which are not on a true, solid foundation are likely to dissolve under this influence. When Neptune is involved, we see life through a completely different kind of lens, often seeing the potential rather than the reality of the situation. Detach & Trust. If your relationship happens to end under this influence, it’s not necessarily a bad thing because it suggests that it was never on solid ground to begin with. Be thankful and move on. This activation is just helping you align your true values & priorities with the vision in your mind & heart, but you will have to expand your consciousness in some way, follow your inner compass and take practical steps going forward.
5/22 ~ Mercury (ideas, thoughts & concepts) ~conjunct~ Venus Rx (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/over-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.
5/22 ~ Sun (your core drives) ~trine~ Saturn Rx (discipline & order):
This energy gives you the direction & discipline at the same time. Use it consciously to fuel your goals and open to receive blessings from your past efforts. You are completely supported to structure your life in a whole new way. It’s time to take a personal inventory, organize your life, especially your home, office or immediate environment. Naturally, this kind of shift will also affect those you relate with in these close environments, so be mindful of others who are not necessarily as *clear* as you may be at this time. A new order is trying to take root, which scares some and excites others, and this activation supports you and your personal definition of stability & good boundaries. You have access to focus & dedication that can set the tone for the next season, as you clarify the connection between who you are and what you are truly responsible for in this life. Evaluate your daily routine and see what’s working and what’s not and move forward with some new choices.
5/22 ~ Mercury (communication) ~square~ Neptune (dissolution):
This is a mixed blessing energy. On one hand, it’s good for spiritual study and giving your dreams a little energy (if your schedule permits). On the other hand, it makes for major miscommunications between people. Try to think before speaking, because if it’s possible to misunderstand or not ‘get it’ altogether, it will happen this week. Be careful not to let “longing” for your dreams to come true, distort your judgment and mislead you into believing the illusion. With this energy, some people will deliberately deceive and others have to be careful not to be misled. Stick to the facts or stay quiet, for now. You may even be inclined to withhold information to avoid a confrontation – don’t do it. Communicate with your Self and God today, otherwise plan to be very clear in explaining yourself to others (humans) so there are no misunderstandings.
5/22 ~ New Moon in GEMINI:
This New Moon can activate some radically NEW ways of thinking, learning & expressing. How we process information and what we allow IN – into our individual field of resonance, into our personal space or into our consciousness. Now that the ‘Collective Field’ is Infinitely Open, you are encouraged to fortify & rely on your own filters, boundaries & systems for living. It is time to live your own Truth, within the context of the larger, collective Truth. Gemini always activates the lesson of CHOICE, and now that we have so many choices, some more than others, we have to have a way of making the best choices for Self. The way to do that is to strengthen & fortify the *Head/Heart* Connection: allow the Head to present the variety of choices and the possibilities therein, then proceed to the Heart to sign off on what *FEELS* True & Right for You, personally. Anything good for you, is usually good for ALL so think with your Heart! And set intentions for a new level of learning, awareness & energetic exchange with others going forward.
EXTRA Energy around this Gemini New Moon includes the recent shift of the North Node into Gemini, kicking off a new 18-month cycle for everyone. This will get us all thinking in new ways about our own Path & Direction, as well as the Path & Direction of the Social/Collective Realms. It’s time to dream up a new way and the next year and a half is a beautiful, exploratory mission so be sure to engage your imagination, stay positive and be alert to new choices, options & opportunities. We also have Venus Retrograding in Gemini (5/13 – 6/25) which also activates yet another 18-month cycle of new values & priorities in those departments of life. Venus will linger in Gemini April-Aug of 2020, awakening radically new ideas of how we want to live our own lives and interact with others. We are social, communal creatures and now we have to do that an entirely new & different way. Venus will ensure that we stay centered in our hearts as we dream up the NEW! Saturn just arrived in Air Sign, Aquarius, which is also activating our progressive ideas for what is practical, sustainable and most of all, best for humanity and all living creatures.
Lastly, the Sacred Feminine Asteroids are worth mentioning around this time. Pallas – lingering in Capricorn to activate the deeper, feminine wisdom within us to be responsible stewards of Earth and cultivate respect for all life (Pallas Rx 5/17); Juno lingering in Libra to activate a realignment in all our relationships and ways of relating (Juno Dir 5/26); Vesta is currently navigating April-May-June in Gemini activating the Sacred Mind within you – the unique ideas, thoughts & concepts that come through your channel are getting a renewal. The last time Vesta was in Gemini was May-June-July 2016 which may give you some clues but I also think it is valuable to note her influence on the current Venus Retrograde, lending major power & potency to this evolution of our consciousness and the values & priorities for life on Earth; Ceres is lingering in Pisces to activate our imaginations as we dream up this new relationship with life, each other and Mother Earth. It’s time to nurture your Spirit and cultivate your intuition when she’s there and Mars is currently in Pisces too, so this is a nice alignment of Masculine/Feminine creating the vision together, nurturing each other. Just keep in mind the Summer Retrogrades, reversals & turnabouts are fair play, while at the same time, it can be delicious support as you are conversing with your own Soul and perhaps your Invisible Team about how the future will unfold in the next 6-months to a year. Juicy goodness supporting our Gemini New Moon this year.
