Weekly Forecast: August 12 - 18, 2012

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: August 12 - 18, 2012

8/15 ~ Venus (love, art & beauty) ~oppose~ Pluto (transformation):

Okay, on top of all the responsibility and career things being triggered this week, love relationships want in on the action. This energy intensifies experiences where love or close relationships are concerned. Beware of indiscretions and seeking a more intense feeling or emotion. Those feelings are destined not to last ... who can maintain that kind of high? Eventually you crash. This energy tends to make you uncontrollably drawn to someone you know is not good for you, which can only result in problems. This energy provokes manipulation, jealousy, guilt and other negative emotions that always come when you are trying to maintain something that wasn’t meant to be in the first place. Again, don’t try to force YOUR will, it can only lead to a broken heart in the end. If you are already in an intense relationship, beware of subconscious impulses, hidden resentments, unexpressed anger or frustration. Expressing it at this time can be helpful if you present your concerns in a constructive way, however, you will have to be vigilant in monitoring your own emotions in order to do that. Ultimately, if change needs to happen in your relationship this will be the catalyst. This energy is only “bad” if you are unwilling to get to the real root or source of the given conflict. Otherwise, it is like a storm that clears the air and makes everything grow better.

8/15 ~ Mars (energy) ~conjunct~ Saturn (responsibility):

This is the energy of action being restricted and the anger that follows. You can either be angry and feel restricted and limited and unable to move ... or you can see this energy as an opportunity to define the right actions to take and strategically plan to take them when the Universe is more supportive. This energy requires us to slow down and double check The Plan. If you proceed consciously, your plan has a better chance of success than if you were reckless and impatient. You may experience a blockage of some sort, internal or external. You feel this tremendous urge to move forward in your life but seem to find blockages and limitations with every effort. That is likely your perception, do you feel inadequate to the task at hand? What are you afraid of? Fear is False Evidence Appearing Real - release fear and choose to be responsible for creating your life. If you don’t, your outer circumstance is only becomes a reflection of your inner belief. You will attract criticism and repel support. Take your grand vision and figure out three small steps you can take on this restricted level that is still taking you in the direction of your goal. Don’t try to initiate at this time, this is a time for cultivating, planning, working behind the scenes, doing the detail work and foundational (grunt work) that is NECESSARY to support the grand vision when the time comes to fully express it.

8/16 ~ Venus (relationships) ~square~ Uranus (freedom):

This energy usually provokes the need for excitement or stimulation in your relationships. You may feel the urge to shake things up. Be aware of others' feelings too, they may not be in the mood for sudden change. Another expression of this energy is to get things on the table; it's a great time to really discuss things and come to an agreement or compromise. This could actually stimulate something new and different that you can share with another. Ultimately, this is a test of your flexibility in relationships. The more inflexible you are, the more disruptive this energy will be.

8/17 ~ Sun (core Self) ~sextile~ Saturn (organization):

This energy best of the week, try to connect with it more than the restriction the other energies this week bring. This energy is good for getting serious and organized ... albeit may be emotionally as much as any where else in your life. You have access to some good discipline and the ability to consider all your options before deciding on anything. This is a good time to focus on your professional life if possible, and start making a solid, feasible plan for the future. If you need to, seek the advice of an older figure that you trust. And if you can't actually DO something in the direction of your goals today, take the time to meditate and connect to your plan mentally.

8/18 ~ Mercury (voice) ~trine~ Uranus (individuality):

This is a powerfully intuitive and stimulating energy. Your thinking may lack discipline, but your ability to access solutions to any recent (or long-standing) challenges and find instant and accurate clarity will be off the charts. This energy will not be contained, even though it is generally all mental, you really will have a hard time keeping up with the thoughts and intuitions that come to you under this influence. Pay attention! Communications with others will have this same “connected” feeling; be open to opinions and ideas that come your way. You may not have been ready for them previously, now you are!

Kelly, thank you for affirming what I have been feeling - a frenetic, chaotic work energy followed by a crash of sorts, a kind of "now what?" accompanied by a NEED to slow down, breathe, rest, allow the universe to take the work to the next step free from our egoic interference. BREATHE. I will accept the breather that the universe seems to want to give me mid-week and trust it is a time of percolation leading to germination.

Love and light to you!
