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, along with some guidance and direction.
Karmic Tools ~ Weekly Forecast: June 26 - July 2, 2011
6/26 ~ Sun (source) ~square~ Uranus (radical shift):
This energy’s motto is “expect the unexpected”; this is a challenging and disruptive energy. However, keep in mind the morning after a storm - the air smells and tastes and feels BETTER. There is something inside you that you are holding back from full expression - what is it? Why are you holding back? This energy, while uncomfortable and perhaps, sudden, is very necessary to disrupt an illusions you may be trying to hold on to. You may have unreasonable restrictions placed on you or you are putting unreasonable restrictions on others in some way - either way, try to figure out the purpose. The suggestion here is that you need some AIR - you are restless and you are inclined to want to do something rash; it would be better if you just take a break, quit early and embrace this energy consciously. Otherwise, if you repress the need to get that air, you will create difficulties which could really affect your direction. No self-sabotage!! Pay attention and find an outlet for this pent up, stagnant energy.
6/27 ~ Mars (action) ~sextile~ Uranus (breakthrough):
This energy gives you the original ideas that will fuel new action steps in your personal life. Beware of any urge to change for the sake of change. This energy, when consciously directed, can actually break you out of any ‘ruts’ you’ve been in, and motivate you to authentic change. You have energy and ‘a-ha’ moments which will propel you to a new, enlivened state of being. Think outside the box, engage in activities you’ve never tried and try to connect with a new and different circle of people.
6/28 ~ Sun (core Self) ~oppose~ Pluto (transformation):
This energy will create very intense encounters with others, possibly revealing things about you which you may not have understood or chosen to ignore thus far. This energy provokes power struggles and/or challenges with authority figures where you may have to stand up for yourself. It also may make you feel more over-bearing than usual, creating these kinds of situations. If there are any problems within the relationship, this energy will force things out into the open. It will be much easier on you, if you can open a dialogue with the express purpose of clearing the air and proceeding to a new level in your relationship. Any aspect of your life that you have been “just getting by” will DEMAND attention; you won’t be able to do anything less than a complete overhaul or replacement - in ANY area of your life. Let’s put it this way, any time Pluto is involved, there is usually complete destruction of the current (x-y-z) to make room for new and improved (by the Universe’s definition, if not your own). Ultimately, this is a good, growth energy, pushing you to the next level ... ready or not, so be prepared.
7/2 ~ Sun (core identity) ~square~ Saturn (responsibility):
With this energy, it is best to understand that you will have two distinct pulls within - duty versus self-gratification. It's not nearly as bad as it feels, however, it does bring up something we all struggle with to some degree or another - SELF & OTHERS. How much do you owe your Self and how much are you obligated to others? Balance and reciprocity come to mind as guides. One of the challenges of this influence is the tendency to make assumptions without checking whether they are true. Never assume! Some people may feel restricted, as if life is too demanding and there's never any time just for you. Others may find their lives falling apart because they have avoided responsibility for so long and now there's no more "wiggle room". Try to convert your impatience with seeming restriction to self-discipline - make a commitment to your Self and follow through. Physically and psychologically, your energies are low at this time. You may feel like the weight of the world is on your shoulders, but you don't expect help because you haven't asked for it. Remember, that is your choice. You may be reinforcing the very circumstances that make you feel lonely and isolated. What you must do is break out of the vicious cycle and take a good look around you, at your life and the people you allow in it. The events related to this transit tend to magnify the chinks in your ego structure. The purpose of discouragement is to reveal the weaknesses in your conception of your Self and to show where you must work to gain greater confidence in your Self.
