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, along with some guidance and direction.
Karmic Tools ~ Weekly Forecast: March 27 – April 2, 2011
3/28 ~ Sun (your Source) ~square~ Pluto (transformation):
Now for the most potent of the transits for the week. You may encounter or even oppose powerful pressures and forces exerted upon you, both from without and within. The way you live and exert your energies will be tested today, perhaps forcing you to make radical changes in the areas of your life that you find are not working very well. The best way to use this influence is to let go of old patterns of behavior that recent events have demonstrated to be invalid. Holding on to them will only make your life more difficult, and if you give them up, you will have room for the positive creative changes that can take place now. In fact, one manifestation of this transit can be a powerful sense of having purged something from your life. Every one of us is being held accountable for our actions. Anything you have left undone or did poorly will come back to bite you (and demand that you do it right this time). The upside of this energy is that the parts of your life that ARE going well, will be your source of strength. Don't forget all your strengths and gifts!!
3/28 ~ Jupiter (expand) ~oppose~ Saturn (consolidate):
These two energies are opposite in nature and now they are opposite in the sky. Oppositions cause a tension that requires balance and compromise to release and be productive, otherwise it can deteriorate in to a tug of war. In general, you usually swing between the extremes before you figure out your personal ‘middle-ground’. Jupiter thinks big and expands your awareness, making you conscious of the story you’re telling with your choices and is generally optimistic. Saturn is more concerned with time and space, physical reality and its inherent limitations. For individuals, this is Truth (Jupiter) and Purpose (Saturn) … what you believe about life in general and how you go about constructing a life that reflects what you believe to be true. These two getting together are going to push you to find the balance between expanding your life and stabilizing your life. It’s not an “either/or” – think in terms of “and” – then do a little of both at this time.
4/2 ~ Venus (relationships) ~sextile~ Pluto (transformation):
This energy deepens all emotions. Friendships and love relationships become much deeper and more intense, not to mention any physical (sexual) experience. There is nothing superficial about this energy, nor will you be satisfied with any superficial exchange, with friends or lovers. It is best to try to understand the depth of your emotions even if you are unable to express them outwardly. Your emotional intensity may be at an unusually high level, so be sure to surround yourself with people who love you unconditionally or try to be alone and just reflect on what you're feeling.
