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: June 19 – 25, 2011
6/19 ~ Mercury (communication) ~oppose~ Pluto (transformation):
This is a good energy for getting to the bottom of any problem, especially between you and another person. This may involve a battle of wills with another person. Just try to remember when you force your will, rather than honor God’s will in your life, you create challenges for yourself. Someone may try very hard today to convince you of some truth that you would rather not accept, or you may do this to someone else. Beware of any attempts to persuade, because they can become the foundation of a very destructive or heated conflict between you and another person. It may be challenging to face things and get it all on the table to be dealt with, but when Pluto is involved, like it or not that is exactly what has to happen for you to get to the next level. And it may be that there aren't any real grievances at all, but that one of you is trying to pull off a blatant power play. Don’t allow yourself to get talked into doing something you don't really believe in. This energy is also good for getting at hidden and secret things, especially elements of yourself that you may have buried or avoided thus far. You should also be careful if you feel compulsive or obsessed by an idea today. Obviously this can be useful in certain circumstances, but most of the time it is not particularly helpful. If you become completely wrapped up in a difficult task that you are trying to finish, this transit is helpful. But you may be possessed by an idea that has no relevance to anything.
6/21 ~ Mercury (communication) ~square~ Saturn (reality):
This energy is good for deep thinking. You are sharp and your standards are high because you are in 'strategy mode'. This is a more solitary energy though, so communications with others may be hampered a bit. You may feel like people don't understand what you're trying to convey or that you're coming across more negatively than you intended. This is not a good energy for business negotiations. This energy makes you most critical of your Self, but it could trickle over onto others as well. Beware of a tendency toward pessimism and/or depression. 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 for manifesting your dreams. This energy just makes you focus on the practical side of manifesting. Clear the debris, and begin to lay a new, clean, solid foundation beneath your goals. It sharpens your ability to see the necessary steps with an unusual acumen.
6/22 ~ Mars (desire) ~square~ Neptune (illusions):
This can be an annoying energy, to say the least. Basically, you may be confronted with challenges which are a direct result of earlier choices. These are the kind of choices you eventually realized were wrong and “hoped” the consequences would somehow pass you by. Not. You may feel very discouraged, possibly depressed, and be filled with fear and doubt. The key to getting through this energy is to take a step back, reflect on your choices and what led you to this point and, as objectively as possible, evaluate what went wrong. The tendency with this energy is to want to give up completely on the path you have chosen when all that is necessary is a little tweaking. Identify the aspect that is causing the conflict. If you don’t feel that you can be objective enough or that you struggle with identifying this aspect, enlist two other people to give you their opinion and follow your gut instinct on the direction to take from here. The other temptation with this energy is to be deceptive – either to your Self or others. Either way – don’t give in – it will only come back to bite you (harder) later. Your physical energy is likely to be low as well. Do not force your Self to do anything you are truly not “feeling” right now. Instead, mediate on what action may be necessary when your energy returns. Be still. Avoid confrontations with others as it is just the conflicting energy kicking and it is not likely that a resolution can be found under this influence regardless. My personal two-cents about these two planets (Mars & Neptune) in a difficult angle, is to reflect on what actions (Mars) have been taken (and NOT worked) toward the fulfillment of your dreams (Neptune) – and start your “tweaking” there.
6/22 ~ Sun (authenticity) ~trine~ Neptune (intuition):
This energy triggers your idealistic side and provokes a desire to understand things on a deeper, more spiritual level. Try to use this energy to reflect on where you are and where you want to be, mentally, spiritually and physically. Take time to meditate and be still, quiet and alone. You may feel compelled to do things today that have no direct benefit for you; finding satisfaction in giving. Just be sure to 'help those who help themselves'. Your intuition is heightened also, so pay attention to any 'messages' that come through to you.
6/25 ~ Sun (core Self) ~sextile~ Jupiter (optimism):
This energy is considered "lucky" but actually it is responsible for putting you in a more positive mind frame which is at the root of all success. Most anything you put forth should bear fruit. There is a LOT of support for all that you need, desire and deserve to finally manifest, or begin to manifest. You'll be pulled toward something greater than your Self alone. You may want to participate in a group thing, either for business or pleasure. This is an excellent time for workshops and seminars – going to one or presenting one yourself, if that's your profession. Pay attention – everything and everyone has something to offer that you may or may not have even known you were looking for!
