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: March 13 - 19, 2016
3/14 ~ Mercury (communication/expression) ~square~ Saturn (limits/reality):
This energy is good for deep thinking rather than negotiating with others as it is more of a solitary energy making communications with others a little harder than usual. You may feel like people don't understand what you're trying to convey or that you're coming across more negative than positive. This is not a good energy for business negotiations unless every detail is very clear to all involved. This energy makes you most critical of your Self, but it could trickle over onto others as well. Beware of a tendency toward apathy, pessimism and/or depression, that's Saturn & Mercury, which makes it more mental than literal. 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 and be okay with small measures of progress for now. This energy just makes you focus on the practical side of manifesting. Clear the mental & emotional debris, and begin to lay a new, clean, solid foundation beneath your goals and strategize about the details of bringing it to fruition.
3/14 ~ Venus (values & priorities) ~square~ Mars (desire & passion):
This is our Inner Feminine & Masculine pushing out of comfort zone and into new territory. It's time to recalibrate how you give & receive, as well as how you BE versus DO. It helps to know the Signs + Elements to consciously choose how to work with it. In this case (3.14.2016), Venus is in Pisces and Mars is in Sag, so we are mirroring the big boys on a personal level too! This is a gift! While Neptune/Chiron in Pisces square off with Saturn in Sag, we are all growing & going to experience completely new levels of healing & truth. That means we also have to get it together within ourselves and our relationships. Anytime Venus & Mars interact, the energy has to do with your relationships, both personal & professional, private & public. Squares create the necessary tension to catalyze action. As an individual, it is time to grow, change and integrate your own Venus (values & priorities) with your own Mars (desires & passion), however, on another level it activates sexual energy as that too is the energy of creation. Pisces & Sag is Water & Fire and again, we have the forces of creation, and all around our faith & imagination. What can you create with your own Imagination & Faith? How are you currently pregnant with possibilities?
3/15 ~ Mercury (communication) ~sextile~ Pluto (transformation):
This energy provokes the need to delve deeper into the ideas or information being presented at this time, whether personal or professional. You will want to dig deeper, ask the hard questions and gather insights that are deeper and more profound than usual. In your professional/public life, you may find yourself doing better due-diligence and in your personal/private life, you may find yourself digging a little deeper into your own mental patterns & personal history (that has led to 'now'). As you make these connections and begin to grasp these new insights, they will gain traction and you will become more grounded in your own Truth. We all get excited about those kind of ah-ha moments, and you may find yourself wanting to share them with others who may or may not be ready to hear such deep Truths or have the conscious awareness to even process them, so use some discernment around who and when you share these new-found insights.
3/15 ~ Mercury (thinking) ~oppose~ Jupiter (learning):
Any opposition requires us to work with two distinct energies and get them to work together for the good of all involved. It is also a MidPoint which allows you that 180* view from the other side of your starting point (roughly 6-months ago). Mercury & Jupiter are working out the push-pull within you between your Mind & Consciousness, between your Thinking & Beliefs, between your Thoughts & Imagination, between the Tedious Details and the Grand Vision. Because of all this, it would be tremendously beneficial to play amongst a group of like-hearted souls with varying points of view, mavericks who following their intuition as well as humble healers who also buck status quo by following their intuitive knowing within, something we all have the capacity for. This is great for what I call *Jam Sessions*, when my colleagues & I get together to discuss our ideas & insights about our professional goals, something like that is a great use of this energy: plan, strategize, discuss with others, get input and feedback, bounce ideas around and be open and receptive to others' points of view (they may think of something you didn't). Make sure it is a Circle, where all opinions are valued even if not shared. This is a good one for learning something new and looking at things from another angle, completely.
3/16 ~ Jupiter (Truth/Story) ~trine~ Pluto (Transformation): (2 of 3: 3.16.2016 & 6.26.2016)
This is part of a potent 12-year *process* (Jupiter Cycle) as it relates to Pluto's purifying and rebirthing abilities. This Activation can assist you with a lot of the *Energy* Work you've done over the last 3-4 years in terms of "clearing debris" and making *meaning* out of your experiences. This is a delicious opportunity to take your *Truth/Story* to the next level in a way that both expands your world, as well as those whose lives you touch along the way. It is primarily Social and Collective, but if you have the Signs involved activated in your own chart, that's when it gets *Personal* and you can use the extra *JuJu* to transform your life. The primary caveat that comes with this is to deeply and honestly scrutinize your *Motivations* for wanting to improve/change your life. This is a time when you should be focused on that which serves you and benefits others, in clean, positive ways. If you are being manipulative, sneaky or underhanded in any of your doings, even if you profit immediately, you will eventually *pay* the cost on the back end. It's time to think *Higher* and/or *Bigger*, not the time to be petty, small or narrow-minded. If you operate from a place of integrity, you can make leaps and bounds of progress in terms of expanding your world, personal Story and positive influence on life. This combo also greatly supports cleaning up past mistakes, advancing your career, increasing your resources and overall course-corrections can run rather smoothly (due to the Trine aspect) however, naturally, consciousness and genuine effort will also be required but the work is well worth the ultimate reward when these two *dance* in the ethers.
