Weekly Forecast: September 8 - 14, 2013

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 8 - 14, 2013

9/9 ~ Mars (anger) ~square~ Saturn (restriction):

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 = False Evidence Appearing Real - release fear and choose to be responsible for creating your life. If you don't, your outer circumstance only becomes a reflection of your inner belief. You may attract criticism and repel support, if you decide to react rather than respond.

Take your grand vision and figure out three small steps you can take (on this restricted level) that will still move 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. 

Note 2013: Brings rare alignments and it must be mentioned here that, as you are navigating the basic transits (planetary activations) that we usually discuss in this column, you have to consider some larger themes as you make your very personal decisions. This week is one of those pivotal weeks when we will all be making decisions with far-reaching implications.

Rather than get into too much of the technical astrological aspects of here & now (though also poignant & beautiful), it's better to have an idea of the *feeling* you would like to feel, as well as the feelings you would like to stop overwhelming you. The players involved are Mars/Venus ~ our Masculine/Feminine; Saturn/North Node ~ our Reality/Path; and Pluto is thrown in to the mix for the dash of transformation needed all around. It starts with the Masculine having to make a choice to forge a new Path and it ends with the power of the Feminine to contain, nurture & protect ALL LIFE.

Mars has the square, which is push to grow, make choices & decisions and out of comfort zone/in to new territory. Venus is INITIATING Brand New Path & Reality based on the fact that all life is inter-connected. It is a conception point, Zero Point of Possibilities. To the extent we are capable of forgiving our selves for past ignorance and deepening our dedication to present awareness is directly related to our ability to birth a completely new way of existing on the planet. We are doing it already, there's nothing to "get ready", we're already there/here/now! What's more potent is to co-create with the energies and alignments. Activations I am referring to here are:

9/9 ~ Mars (anger) ~square~ Saturn (restriction):

(square=test/growth...in Leo: ego/self-love/creativity + Scorpio: power to create & sustain life)

9/10 ~ Mars (who you are/what you want) ~conjunct~ North Node (Life Path/Aspirations)

(conjunct = initiation ... in Scorpio: power to create & sustain life)

9/11 ~ Pluto (buried treasure/transformation) ~sextile~ North Node (Life Path/Aspirations)

(sextile=opportunity...in Capricorn: responsibility/dedication+Scorpio: power to create & sustain life)

9/17 ~ Saturn (structure/foundation) ~conjunct~ North Node (Life Path/Aspirations)

(conjunct = initiation ... in Scorpio: power to create & sustain life)

9/18 ~ Venus (values/priorities/resources) ~conjunct~ Saturn & North Node (see above)

(conjunct = initiation ... in Scorpio: power to create & sustain life) 

9/14 ~ 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.

9/14 ~ Mercury (expression) ~square~ Pluto (transformation):

This energy is a tough, yet powerful one. It's Highest expression would be to focus on your inner discovery and development. It enables you to look beneath the surface to some core drives and gain some valuable insights and thus, choose a plan of action based on your discovery. You will want to know all the hidden meanings behind decisions you've made or want to make soon. Dig - you will find more than you think you're ready for, but apparently the Universe thinks differently!

Pay attention and try not to worry about what anyone else thinks or believes. This energy's flip-side is to make you obsess over one particular idea and try to force others to your way of thinking. That is a bottomless pit - you cannot truly change the way other people think - you can only change the way you think and hope it enlightens others along the way ... and it will, for those who are tuned in to your level. Try to only focus on you and your direction.

9/14 ~ Mars (courage) ~trine~ Uranus (freedom):

This is a powerful combo, however, it has to be integrated and consciously expressed to yield the best results, otherwise you may miss an opportunity to discover some new gift or talent you have, or perhaps an improved philosophy that serves you better at this time. This energy gives you the necessary courage to try something new that may liberate you in some way you may have felt inhibited to initiate in the past. Because of the ease of this angle too, this new evolution to the next level should not entail you having to annihilate any other aspect of your life, you will just intuitively know it is time to change. It won't matter what others think or say either, because the prompting for change comes from within so take advantage of this time to experiment. You never know where it will lead.

Excellent, Kelly. Mars is my main guy, and I so feel this influence today. Thank you for pointing out the subtleties and ramifications of his interactions.
