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: July 20 - 26, 2014
7/20 ~ Saturn Direct at 16* Scorpio
7/21 ~ Uranus Retrograde at 16* Aries
7/22 ~ Mercury (communication) ~oppose~ Pluto (transformation):
This is a good energy for getting to the bottom of any problem, especially between you and another person. This may involve a battle of wills with another person. Just try to remember when you force your will, rather than honor God's will in your life, you create challenges for yourself. Someone may try very hard today to convince you of some truth that you would rather not accept, or you may do this to someone else. Beware of any attempts to persuade, because they can become the foundation of a very destructive or heated conflict between you and another person. It may be challenging to face things and get it all on the table to be dealt with, but when Pluto is involved, like it or not that is exactly what has to happen for you to get to the next level. And it may be that there aren't any real grievances at all, but that one of you is trying to pull off a blatant power play. Don't allow yourself to get talked into doing something you don't really believe in. This energy is also good for getting at hidden and secret things, especially elements of yourself that you may have buried or avoided thus far. You should also be careful if you feel compulsive or obsessed by an idea today. Obviously this can be useful in certain circumstances, but most of the time it is not particularly helpful. If you become completely wrapped up in a difficult task that you are trying to finish, this transit is helpful. But you may be possessed by an idea that has no relevance to anything.
7/24 ~ Venus (relationships) ~trine~ Neptune (vision):
This is a very supportive energy for dreaming your world into being! Allow your imagination some latitude to wander and see where it leads. You may be very connected to others and what they are going through. You may have a very spiritual encounter with another; friend, family or lover - only time will tell if it is Neptune playing tricks on you or it is truly a spiritual union.
7/24 ~ Sun (identity) ~conjunct~ Jupiter (expansion):
This energy expands your sense of Self, making you want to experience all that this life offers. It indicates that it is time to go to the next level and gives you the optimism and faith that you need to try new things and create your "ideal". You will want to learn all you need to know to be the expert. The highest expression of this energy is a fiery passion to be the best, the lowest expression is arrogance and self-righteousness. This is a powerful pair of energies joining forces, so watch for opportunities to grow and expand your consciousness and your circumstances through your own efforts and expertise.
7/24 ~ Mercury (connection) ~square~ Uranus (intuition):
This energy provokes a lot of mental stimulation! If you are naturally flexible, this energy tends to make you get bored easily; if your are NOT naturally flexible, prepare to be aggravated. Relax if you can. The Universe may decide to remind you that YOU are NOT in control. And the more stubborn and inflexible you are, the more it will let you have it! Either way, it will be a fast pace. You will have electrical flashes of inspiration. Keep that going, but anything you begin or get into, be sure to check over the details next week as they will not be your priority this week. This week is for creative planning - next week you can figure out the logistics.
7/24 ~ 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.
7/25 ~ Mars enters Scorpio
