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); there are no missing entries, we just list the actual Activations of each week + the day they happen.
Weekly Forecast: August 11-17, 2019
8/14 ~ Venus (beauty & creativity) ~conjunct~ Sun (individuality & Light)
This activates your innate creativity and gets your wheels turning about what you want to express or bring to life in the world, what you want to invest in and be a part of. When Sun contacts Venus, the creativity is centered around you, the individual; however, here as Venus contacts the Sun, it is all about your creations! Use this Solar infusion to brighten and illuminate your self, your surroundings and/or your creative projects. This expands & brightens your magnetic field and opportunities that are just right for you are the result. There is a burst of new energy wanting to be expressed through you, and it's based on your new values & priorities. It is also the beginning of a new creative cycle. Remember that love too is a creative force, so if your relationships are more center-stage than your creative projects, then this too lends new potency to what you create with others. This is a potent seed time and good to allow support & guidance from men and/or the Sacred Masculine within and around you.
8/16 ~ Mercury (lower mind & ideas) ~square~ Uranus (Higher Mind & awakening)
This energy challenges you to expand your mind or consciousness in a way, pushing you to think differently and respond to information in new ways. Uranus brings sudden ah-ha moments, personal awareness and radical new ideas, which is great for you adventurous souls who thrive on change and new ideas. However, if you are personally attached to your routine and things “going as planned,” then this energy can cause aggravation and tax your nervous system because things will seem sudden (even though it is more likely that they have already been brewing under the surface for some time now). You will have to adjust and be more open & mentally flexible than usual. You may not be able to control the excessive mental activity or information-overload coming in, but hopefully you can direct it a bit. It's good to activate or clean your personal filters by taking some time in nature to process things at your own pace and generally clear your head. This can be a very inspiring & creative time, so try to tune into that, while keeping in mind that anything you begin or get into may require a review later so you can check over the details of your revelations (or creations). You're just cracking the surface; this is all about the revelation or awakening…you will eventually have to figure out the logistics or effective actions necessary to bring your ideas into form.
