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: April 3 – 9, 2011
4/3 ~ Mars (passion) ~conjunct~ Uranus (freedom):
This energy is a volatile mix but can be directed constructively. When these two get together, it provokes you to be completely intolerant of restrictions and gives you an undeniable urge to break free. If you have a solid sense of Self and are clear about your deepest desires, then this energy is just what you need to finally break old limiting patterns of behavior which no longer suit who you have become. You will have considerable energy, so you should direct it in to a project of your own making, something you created, something truly unique and that will ultimately reflect the Truth of who and what you are. At its worst, it is violent thrashing, reactionary and destructive.
4/3 ~ Sun (core Self) ~oppose~ Saturn (reality):
This energy is a push-pull between who you are and who you want to be; between what you “want” to do and what you “have” to do. I always tell people, do what you “gotta do” so you can do what you “wanna do”. And it may not be the easiest path, but it’s definitely worth it for the peace of mind it brings. You may swing between extremes of fulfilling all your obligations to the neglect of your Truth and Purpose ~ OR neglecting your obligations and doing whatever you choose, which only means those obligations will BE there when you get to them and they will have most likely INCREASED by the time you do. Balance is the key! And this energy reminds us to practice “work before play”. Another expression of this energy is a sense of loneliness and isolation. Don’t indulge those thoughts too long, it’s counter-productive, a distraction and a waste of time. This too shall pass. And that’s not the point of this energy. The PERFECT thing to do at this time is to work on a project alone that is really important to you, but personal and private. Focus ~ you’re on to something solid.
4/6 ~ Sun (identity) ~conjunct~ Jupiter (expansion):
This energy expands your sense of Self, making you want to experience all that this life offers. It indicates that it is time to go to the next level and gives you the optimism and faith that you need to try new things and create your “ideal”. You will want to learn all you need to know to be the expert. The highest expression of this energy is a fiery passion to be the best, the lowest expression is arrogance and self-righteousness. This is a powerful pair of energies joining forces, so watch for opportunities to grow and expand your consciousness and your circumstances through your own efforts and expertise.
4/9 ~ Mercury (expression) ~conjunct~ Sun (core-Self):
This energy will compel you to express yourself on many levels. Communication will be a focus, just make sure it is reciprocated. You will have access to some powerful energy that can (and probably will) make quite an impression on others (if you need to). This is a good time to travel if possible too. However, if not physically, than mentally and certainly within your own area, you will take in more information per square inch than usual. Pay attention! You may even gain the much deserved recognition from others you have worked so hard for.
