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.
Weekly Forecast: September 25 – October 1, 2011
9/25 ~ Sun (core-identity) ~oppose~ Uranus (disruption):
Be ready for surprises with this energy. Your routine will be disrupted, by you and/or others. Now is not the time to be practical, nor is it time to make any huge decisions. What it is best for is experimenting with alternative modes of expression. A part of you undergoes a mini-transformation under this energy’s influence because it wakes up a part of you that is requiring expression now. You may not recognize it right away, but you HAVE CHANGED! You are a new “you” and it’s time you acknowledged that fact, so everyone else can too.
9/27 ~ Mercury (thoughts) ~oppose~ Uranus (radical shift):
This energy tends to make your mind work in over-drive. Not that you think too much, you will think and speak faster than usual, making others seem slow to you. However, when you are moving that fast, sometimes you can overlook something important. The negative expression of this energy tends to make you feel scattered and nervous, but the positive expression of it is understanding things faster, perceiving what is going on around you quicker, and connecting with your intuition on a level you normally cannot access. All the information that comes should be subject to a review in the near future because while it may be valid and useful, there will likely be some oversights due to the speed at which you connect with the information. You will be very impatient with normal routine. It is a good time to breathe and be flexible because ideas and information may come at you at a rapid speed. If you are impatient with this energy, you are more likely to make mistakes. Also, be aware of the need or tendency to be too blunt; sometimes we say things to shock people or just to get a reaction. If this is something you are prone to do, be prepared to back up all that you say eventually.
9/28 ~ 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!!
9/28 ~ Mercury (expression) ~square~ Pluto (transformation):
This energy is a tough, yet powerful one. It's Highest expression would be to focus on your inner discovery and 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 discovery. 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 flip-side 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 ~ 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.
9/29 ~ Mercury (expression) ~sextile~ Mars (passion):
This is a healthy selfish energy. Do not hold back this week. If you have a goal you have been working diligently toward, then this is the time that may attract the assistance you need from the Universe. This is definitely a “work” energy, however, it brings with it the caveat that it is best if you work alone on something important to you. No one else is (or ever will be) as dedicated to your goal as YOU will be, nor should you expect them to. You are connected to the extra energy it takes to push your goals to the next level bringing you a modicum of a sense of accomplishment while outlining the next tasks to be done. Opportunities present themselves all the time – be ready!! If you are given the opportunity to make a presentation, go for it! Your enthusiasm will be unmatched and that’s what people respond to. Don’t choose this time to be “shy” or doubt that you’re ready – you ARE ready … otherwise you wouldn’t be here!! My current screen saver says “At the moment of COMMITMENT – the Universe conspires to assist you!” Are you committed? How committed are you?
9/29 ~ Venus (values) ~conjunct~ Saturn (responsibility):
This energy is all about your values and responsibilities. You will be very practical about the things and people that are important to you. Only things and people of substance will be tolerated and subsequently, some long term relationships end during this transit because one or both party’s values have shifted in some significant way. This energy makes you want to build a solid, worthy foundation – with ANYTHING you value – anything you are creating – a business, a relationship. If you define what you truly value, commit and channel this considerable power, all that you need, desire and deserve will manifest, take root and grow!
9/30 ~ Sun (confidence) ~sextile~ Mars (action):
This is an excellent time for action! You may have some good, positive energy brewing that if it does not find an outlet, could turn negative. So DO something! Work on accomplishing some long sought after goals, physical, spiritual, emotional, mental or material. The Universe supports action at this time. Call in help from other like-minded souls – reach out – share this energy and see where it leads. During this kind of energy, you could secure a stronger position and if you have to fight for something, you will do so effectively because it is time.
