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: September 22–28, 2019
9/22 ~ 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.
9/24 ~ Mercury (your voice) ~sextile~ Jupiter (expansion)
Where the above (Sun sextile Jupiter) is more about YOU, this activation is more about your consciousness, ideas, thoughts & concepts (Mercury), which Jupiter expands in some way, helping you to “think bigger,” edit your personal Story, and step up your game in some way. This is also a great energy to work with if you are in school, learning something new, expanding your knowledge base, or gathering new tools & information to support your goals. Your dreams are tapping you on the shoulder, demanding some attention. Mundane issues are not your concern right now; you want to figure out how to create the life you've been imagining. This energy also provokes within you the awareness & understanding that being generous naturally attracts generosity to you. The big picture and overall patterns which have led you to this point are being brought into the light. Feeling clear, sharp, alert, and optimistic, you begin to realize that anything you can imagine (or remember), you can achieve.
9/25 ~ Venus (values) ~square~ Saturn (foundation)
This energy can make you feel cool & detached with loved ones. It is time to “take stock” of your relationships and really evaluate the level of balance between giving & receiving. Business or personal, relationships must have a balance of give & take. You may feel more aware of your true independence in life and start reevaluating the need for certain relationships, at this time. This energy pushes you to dig for your individual fortitude & determination to live according to your personal values & priorities, so corrections or adjustments may be necessary and fairly obvious at this time. You may feel lonely, depressed, or disconnected but it’s just the Universe forcing you to question or assess your current relationships, how you interact with others and how you allow them to interact with you. It’s good to periodically evaluate even the strongest relationship and check the foundation. Don’t give in to (ego-based) fears, focusing on the lack & limitation or what is not working, but instead build on your strengths and honor the goodness that you have created together, as well as in your Self. This is the best time for intentional solitude because the insights you acquire through this process will help you down the road to stabilize your future.
9/26 ~ Mercury (ideas, thoughts & concepts) ~square~ Pluto (rebirth & transformation)
This energy is a tough, yet powerful one. Its Highest expression would be to focus on your inner deep-dig, discovery & 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 findings. 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 flipside 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.
9/28 ~ Venus (relationships) ~sextile~ Jupiter (optimism)
This energy expands your relationships, personal or professional, allowing you to gain traction in expressing the Highest vibration that’s possible for that connection. In personal relationships, things are sociable, light & fun. In professional or public relationships, things can go more smoothly as folks are more relaxed & easy-going, upbeat & open to exchanging ideas & concepts. This energy activates our innate optimism and natural positive thinking, so it is a good time to look into expanding your knowledge base in some way that makes you more valuable to the team. You’ll have that connection to your instincts and confidence with others that is a winning combination!
