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: September 15 – 21, 2019
9/18 ~ Saturn Direct 13* CAPRICORN:
This is Saturn’s first time in Capricorn since 1988-1990 and today completes its second retro in its home sign. This is a tremendous amount of stabilizing energy that you can direct consciously on your own behalf. In general, you can look to any area of your life that requires you to upgrade & fortify because it has essentially run its natural course and is more/less worn out. But you can also look to your Capricorn House, and see if the Areas of Life it represents, also may require some much-needed focus & dedication. Saturn often gets our attention by creating blockages & delays, pointing out weaknesses & oversights, and during its retrograde, there are reports of folks feeling like they are being ‘held back by the elbows’. But it doesn’t necessarily have to be that way. A better use of Saturn’s amazing energy is to slow down and check in with your personal base. How organized are you in general? Are you naturally focused and self-directed or do you succeed more often when you have a structure or a plan? This is a time to develop or fortify your Inner Authority to make choices & decisions on your own behalf, with courage & confidence. Take time to organize your thoughts or create a plan or strategy for adjusting to the changes (seemingly) being forced on you at this time. Start with small, manageable goals because accomplishing them will also give you the momentum & fortitude to go after the bigger goals. It’s time to release fear & doubt and redefine your reality on some level, as Saturn gets through its 2+ year journey through Capricorn. This Retrograde likely revealed at least a clue about what restructuring needs to happen for you personally and going Direct will help you begin to rebuild.
9/19 ~ Mars (energy) ~trine~ Pluto (transformation):
This is an active, transformative energy that will help you to change your life in a healthy, positive way. You may have the energy & inclination to make major personal (and permanent) changes to who you are and what you want on a deep Soul level. Because it’s a Trine, it promises more ease than is usually associated with Pluto, and in this case, makes transformation smoother. You may be especially focused on what needs to be done or changed in your life at this time. You will want to take action and the Universe supports that decision, as long as it is integrity and not totally self-serving. This is a good time to get moving, take action regarding your long-term goals – and you will be able to create momentum. You may realize some of your recent actions or choices do not necessarily support your deepest drives or desires. As you get in alignment within & without, the results can be miraculous. Be creative ~ be brave!
9/20 ~ LIVE Circle: FALL Equinox Celebration w Kelly & Shanta:
Actual Equinox is on the 23rd but our call is FRI/20th @8pm/edt or 5pm/pdt to celebrate. Harvest is about assessing and gathering all that you’ve created for the year, and ultimately, reaping the rewards of all your hard work and labor. Some of your *Harvest* will be tangible, in that, creative projects that can/will bear fruit now that they are complete, stable or in place … and some of your *Harvest* will be intangible, as you have been cultivating your own Being throughout the last year and now you (and others) can benefit from your personal integration & renewed strength.
Renewing your connection to Balance and cultivating this inner alignment with your Higher Self, will inspire the goals for the remaining quarter of the year. Equinox is a time of BALANCE. It is time of balance between Light & Shadow and takes us from movement out in the world, to more inner, “work with what you’ve got” energy, using your resources and creations to build on & expand, primarily behind the scenes in preparation for Spring Initiation, 6-months from now.
Please join Shanta & I for a special celebration and to offer our prayers for Mother Earth and all LIFE. Shanta will open & close with a prayer and I will discuss the Sacred Season and all the energetic support we have as we enter the Season of Balance. The world has gotten itself in a great big hurry and all distracted by an endless variety of technology etc, it means a LOT for us to gather like this, at the Turn of the Wheel, to anchor the energy of Harmony and the season of Balance!!
9/21 ~ Jupiter (Truth/Story) ~square~ Neptune (Vision/Spirituality): (3 of 3: 1/13 ~ 6/16 ~ 9/21)
These two are somewhat related and seem to create a possibility for “too much of a good thing” ~ over-idealizing ~ over-extending ~ along with faith and charity in the wrong direction. The *square* is creating the friction that helps you catch “glimpses” of your reality as the illusion “cracks” and hopefully, it will spur you on to manifesting your ideals in practical/3D ways. By recognizing what you no longer believe, a new vision begins to emerge, though it still needs to be cultivated. The *TEST* that squares bring, push us to grow and develop in a way that moves things along. When a Social Planet (Jupiter) hits a Collective Planet (Neptune) then large numbers of humans evolve around the same time. Additionally, if you have the Signs activated in your Individual chart, then it becomes “personal” for you. In general, these energies coming together should help you develop a Truth/Belief System of your own, while still creating the *Daily Practice* that will animate and support it going forward. This energy will activate your generosity of spirit, so make sure to give to those worthy of your investment and try not to be foolish, deluded or tricked. Use this combo to expand your consciousness and practice what you preach.
