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), please note that there are no missing entries, we just list the actual Activations of each week + the day they happen.

Weekly Forecast: May 10 – 16, 2015

5/15 ~ Mars (energy) ~oppose~ Saturn (stability):

This energy is a mixed blessing so watch any extreme swings one way or another. Mars is all about energy, passion and movement and Saturn is all about stability, structure and foundation. When they are opposite each other, there can be a beautiful blend of energy and passion behind solid, productive work that yields long-term benefits. However, if you swing to petulant Mars, “I want my way!” ~ Saturn’s response is, “It will be done the RIGHT way or not at all!” This energy brings lessons either way, usually around anger issues or long-standing upsets. You may feel “held back” although nothing could be further from the truth. The reality is you have to do certain ‘first things first’ and if/when you do things in “order”, success usually follows. If/when you rush and do things without thinking or planning, then mistakes inevitably follow and you have to do things over again. This is also the half-way mark of a 2yr cycle that gives you the opportunity to check in and see how things are progressing and make any necessary adjustments so you are successful at the culmination of the current cycle. (Look to the signs for more specifics.)

5/16 ~ Venus (relationships) ~trine~ Neptune (vision):

This is a very supportive energy for dreaming your world into being! Allow your imagination some latitude to wander and see where it leads. You may be very connected to others and what they are going through. You may have a very spiritual encounter with another; friend, family or lover – only time will tell if it is Neptune playing tricks on you or it is truly a spiritual union.

Weekly Forecast: May 3 – 9, 2015

5/3 ~ Mercury (intellect) ~oppose~ Saturn (reality):

This energy will push you toward some serious thinking. You may find yourself asking what your truth and purpose really are or you may be concerned about how to provide for your very basic, essential needs and why you have been constantly limited in that way. Everything can seem bleak and depressing but really it is just the Universe’s way of getting your attention and helping you to focus on what really matters and think of new ways to function on a practical level. You may feel like leaving a mate at this time, but it’s not really the best time to actually act on this impulse. Wait till this energy passes and give your Self some time to clear that negative thinking that is actually coloring your judgment at this time. If you feel this way in another week or two then begin to plan releasing this person in the healthiest, most compassionate possible way so as not to create more karma YOU will have to deal with later. What this energy is good for is giving you the ability to see what is wrong and connect to a positive, realistic way of creating change for the better. If you are still unsure about what direction to take, this energy supports consulting a person you respect, usually someone older and/or more experienced.

5/4 ~ Sun (core-self) ~square~ Jupiter (truth):

This is a powerful energy. With that comes the necessity of discernment – it provokes you to get lots of things accomplished and that’s a good thing, however, beware of taking on more than you can actually handle. Having said that now, if you need that little “push” to get some things done, this is just the energy for you. It carries with it the optimism necessary to allow you to go beyond your normal limitations. There can be a tendency toward self-righteousness with this energy, but try to make it “self-directed” and you will benefit greatly from this energy. If you turn it on others, you may have some difficulties. Be open and receptive, you never know what you may learn along the way that could really help you later.

5/6 ~ Sun (core-identity) ~trine~ Pluto (transformation):

This energy makes you want to get things done, by any means necessary and you may tend to come on a little strong – but it’s all good. The work you want to do, is work that needs to be done and in doing it and facing things head-on, you will gain insights about yourself you can apply in the future. This intense and powerful energy is transformative in nature and will provoke you to think deeply about your life; what you need, desire and deserve. You may find that some aspects of your life need to be reformed or released – go for it – this energy makes reform and release easier than usual. It’s a good time to make an impression or an impact on others, but be sure to keep it on the Highest level possible. Any actions or statements used to manipulate others for selfish gain WILL backfire on you in a big way. This is a positive, uplifting, transformative energy – use it as such to clear the debris and create the life you were born to live.

5/9 ~ Mercury (communication) ~square~ Neptune (dissolution):

This is a mixed blessing energy. On one hand, it’s good for spiritual study and giving your dreams a little energy (if your schedule permits). On the other hand, it makes for major miscommunications between people. Try to THINK before speaking, because if it’s possible to misunderstand or not ‘get it’ all together, it will happen this week. Be careful not to let “longing” for your dreams to come true, distort your judgment and mislead you into believing the illusion. With this energy, some people will deliberately deceive and others have to be careful not to be misled. Stick to the facts or stay quiet, for now. You may even be inclined to withhold information to avoid a confrontation – don’t do it. Communicate with your Self and God today, otherwise plan to be very clear in explaining yourself to others so there are no misunderstandings.

Weekly Forecast: March 22 – 28, 2015

3/22 ~ Mercury (communication) ~sextile~ Pluto (transformation):

This energy provokes the need to delve deep! In your outer life, you may ask probing questions about any proposals that come your way. It’s not a suspicious thing, you just want the whole picture. In your inner life, you will feel brave about looking at the deeper issues you’re going through at this time. You may feel ready to face things you haven’t been ready to face before now. Also, as a result of gaining these new, deep insights, you’ll want to spread the knowledge. You may have the urge to change other people’s thinking on a given subject. That’s great, if they are open and receptive, not to mention ready. But on the other hand, is it really your place to decide if another is ready or not? Be careful in spreading your new-found insights. Test the waters before you jump!

3/24 ~ Venus (love & money) ~sextile~ Neptune (dissolution of boundaries):

This energy tends to make you more in tune to the beauty around you and if not, it makes you daydream about the beauty and comfort you wish you were surrounded with. That’s fine (daydreaming) within reason. You may also be more sensitive to the needs of others, creating a bond between you. Try to find a way to enjoy art of any kind, music, poetry, etc.

3/25 ~ Sun (your core drives) ~trine~ Saturn (discipline & order):

This energy is going to help you further organize your life, mainly your home, office or immediate environment. Others may see you as a hard worker, but really you are only doing what you feel must be done at this time. You may be really aware of the connection between who you are and what you do at this time. This energy is giving you an opportunity to see how things are working for you, on a practical level. Evaluate your daily routine and see what’s working and what’s not and move forward.

3/27 ~ Venus (socializing) ~square~ Jupiter (increase):

This energy is a happy-go-lucky kind of energy that doesn’t really want to be bothered with the mundane, however, you must not allow that passing energy to get you so off track that it costs you more than it is worth. If you don’t have any pressing obligations, then this will be a fun, relaxing time, possibly with friends having a good time. However, if you have work to do, make sure it gets done first so you can truly enjoy yourself without the worry of the pile being bigger when you return. Watch the excesses as well, food, drink and/or spending.

3/16 ~ Uranus (radical change) ~square~ Pluto (death, rebirth & transformation):

 

These two may need a little qualifying first. Uranus has an 84-year cycle, comprised of 7-year increments (each Sign), breaking in to social cycles of 21 years (square) and 42 years (opposition) as well. Pluto has a 248-year cycle, and spends 11-33 years in each Sign, which comes in waves apparently, but reminds us that “Transformation takes as long as it takes!” Uranus is considered the *Change Agent* ~ while Pluto represents the ultimate (and permanent) transformation. However, they operate considerably differently. Pluto works very slowly, over long periods of time and behind the scenes, exerting its strongest influence from the hidden realms. Uranus works with lightning speed, change in an instant, sudden illumination and life is never the same again. They are getting together in a 90-degree angle (square), which will ultimately build something, but not before the complete destruction of that which is not worthy (ending the old way), the clearing and purifying of space for new growth (preparation) and restructuring from the ground UP (rebirthing/rebuilding). Squares push us *out of comfort zone, in to new territory* ~ they help us *build* something stable and useful through the trials and adjustments, processes and sacrifices made, especially when they are actively engaged like this … which is rare. (Uranus Squares Pluto every 50-80 years.)

 

On a personal level, this is a revolutionary time to be alive and all life is affected one way or another when these Collective shifts happen. Even though both of these planets are considered Collective planets, they will affect individuals with planets active in these Signs. So this go-round is primarily affecting Cancer/Capricorn and Aries/Libra energies, though no one is exempt. (You can look to the Signs for the themes and lessons.) There is a tremendous pressure from the Social and Collective realms to adjust on personal and Individual levels. This activation forces change, seemingly from outer, uncontrollable influences, but it should not be a surprise. It usually changes something you’ve known needed changing, but resisted and postponed. Essentially, Pluto reveals that which is already dead, done and over but very often we avoid these deeper, darker realms. “Suddenly” (Uranus) there is a catalyst (activation) for change and there is no going back! We *LIVE* during the current *Activation* which means we can set an intention to co-create. We can set an intention for ourselves and 7 Generations to come, if we like. Allow the old paradigms to drift in to your memory and focus on the incoming, new paradigm. Connect with the new life and new structures rising from the ashes, like the Phoenix reborn, of all that’s gone before. It is not necessarily “good” or “bad” but it’s definitely “over” so don’t waste precious resources looking back. Connect to your Aries Instincts (independence) and Libra Circle (community) and anchor your fundamentals, how you provide for your Self and your family (Cancer) as well as, how you contribute to Society (Capricorn). If you do that to the best of your ability, you should come out of this 4+ year *PROCESS* on completely new ground, stabilized in the outer realms and more secure in your Center to navigate, come what may. There will be two Activations in 2012, 2013 and 2014 with the 7th and final one in 2015.

 

NOTE: The last time Uranus Squared Pluto was 1932-1934 with Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Cancer. The next time Uranus Squares Pluto will be 2073-2074 with Uranus in Capricorn and Pluto in Aries, the exact opposite of what we are experiencing *NOW*!

 

3/16 ~ Uranus (radical change) ~square~ Pluto (death, rebirth & transformation): —CONT’d

 

DATES OF ACTIVATIONS:

 

June 24, 2012 ~ 8° ~ Uranus in Aries/Pluto in Capricorn

 

September 19, 2012 ~ 6° ~ Uranus in Aries/Pluto in Capricorn

 

May 20, 2013 ~ 11° ~ Uranus in Aries/Pluto in Capricorn

 

November 1, 2013 ~ 9° ~ Uranus in Aries/Pluto in Capricorn

 

April 21, 2014 ~ 13° ~ Uranus in Aries/Pluto in Capricorn

 

December 15, 2014 ~ 12° ~ Uranus in Aries/Pluto in Capricorn

 

March 16, 2015 ~ 15° ~ Uranus in Aries/Pluto in Capricorn

 

3/16 ~ 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.

 

3/18 ~ Mercury (communication) ~conjunct~ Neptune (illusion):

This is a mixed blessing. If you are trying to express yourself creatively, it’s great! However, if you have to confront someone about something which requires complete honesty from both parties, things could get a little hazy. This energy tends to color reality, misleading you to think you are being perfectly clear in your communication, while others are completely lost. It’s better to say nothing, rather than be completely misunderstood.

Weekly Karma Forecast: March 8 – 14, 2015

Weekly Forecast: March 8 – 14, 2015

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), please note that there are no missing entries, we just list the actual Activations of each week + the day they happen. 

 

Weekly Forecast:  March 8 – 14, 2015

3/10 ~ Mars (energy) ~trine~ Jupiter (enthusiasm):

This energy is GREAT!! This is good for all activity – physical and otherwise – you will feel uplifted and motivated and capable of twice the productivity as usual. Some say it’s “lucky” but it is moreso your positive attitude during this time that attracts good things to you. You will have a great overall perspective of the “big picture” and can plan accordingly. The only caveat with this energy is to avoid being OVERLY confident where you feel invincible. Be confident, not cocky. This energy is very good for knowing what you need and being capable of making succinct decisions about the course which will get you there. Calculated risks are the name of the game!

 

3/11 ~ 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.

 

3/11 ~ Mars (lower will) ~square~ Pluto (Higher will):

This is a test of what you are made of on the deepest core level and will require surrender as well as focus.  This energy challenges you to evolve and will make you want to push through all obstacles but you must be careful not to be so aggressive that you are stepping on anyone to get where you’re going.  This is a potent energy that can facilitate major transformation in your life if you know who you are, what you want and what you are willing to sacrifice to get there – that includes parts of your Self that need to shift to be more effective.  This energy brings power struggles, either within or without, so be mindful because this energy is affecting everyone at this time.  This is the time to tie up any loose ends if you are close to beginning anew.  If you do not finish what you already have in the works, it may get in the way of things you want to do in the future.

Weekly Forecast: March 1 – 7, 2015

a message from Kelly M. Beard

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), please note that there are no missing entries, we just list the actual Activations of each week + the day they happen.

 

Weekly Forecast: March 1 – 7, 2015

 

3/1 ~ Mercury (acumen) ~sextile~ Uranus (the Awakener):

 

This energy says, it’s time to go with the flow – “new and different” being the flow. It wants to shake it up a bit – in a good way. However, if you feel like new and different is more like chaos and disruption, then you need to reflect and see if you aren’t being too rigid. Unwillingness to go with the (new) flow will make this energy harder to handle. This is also a good time to try to resolve any old issues or challenges – they are not going away without resolution and conscious release. Perhaps you’ve been trying the same thing over and over and it’s time to try something NEW – now is the time new ideas will come to you. Pay attention! Try to be open and receptive to unusual things, events or ideas; allow spontaneity. You may think you are doing one thing and look up and being doing something completely different – be open to exploring the new path!

 

3/1 ~ Mercury (communication) ~oppose~ Jupiter (optimism):

 

This is a great complement to the previous energy because it gives the optimism that is lacking in the previous energy. This energy gives so much optimism and tends to make you think “big” that alone, you could overlook necessary details. It’s great to have access to this energy – plan, strategize, discuss with others, get input and feedback, bounce ideas around and be open and receptive to others’ points of view (they may think of something you didn’t).

 

3/3 ~ Jupiter (Education/Faith) ~trine~ Uranus (Awakening/Liberation):

(2 of 3: 9.25.2014 ~ 3/3 & 6/22.2015)

 

This is a delicious relief for some who have had enough of the Cancer/Aries challenges of the last year or more (personal security vs. independence), though developing the strength & tools to work it out was critical to maximizing the potential of the current blessing of *Fire* energy now that Jupiter has moved into Leo. We still have to deal with the independence/liberation issues that Uranus is ‘cracking us open’ to but hopefully, now that we’ve redefined personal security and deepened our faith in our own ability to sustain & protect ourselves, Leo energy encourages us to believe in ourselves and express more authenticity in every moment. It’s almost like you rewired your internal system and now you’ll be working on the outer expression & appearance (how it works in the world). I don’t necessarily mean your looks or physical appearance, although upgrading that too is deeply supported, but this is more about what your unique energy radiates out to the world, and how others receive & respond to your energy. Think: Magnetize & Repel and then define your terms and invite your Higher Self to assist you.

 

Jupiter & Uranus affect groups of people, so this energy is ‘in the air’. If you have a lot of Fire in your chart, this is going to increase it, so you may want to use your Earth energy to ground & contain this fiery time, or at least take some precautions. If you don’t have enough, this will really help you bring in the Fire energy consciously and balance certain aspects of your life out in a much-needed way. So, in general, these two getting together activate your consciousness in a huge way. There are sudden ah-ha moments and more clarity than you’ve maybe had access to in recent years. Uranus always activates us to learn or try something new or try something in a new way (to the tune of 3-6-9-12 years, a Jupiter Cycle).

 

3/3 ~ Jupiter (Education/Faith) ~trine~ Uranus (Awakening/Liberation): —CONT’d

(2 of 3: 9.25.2014 ~ 3/3 & 6/22.2015)

 

In this context (with Jupiter) you will want to express something you’ve only just recently discovered or realized is Truth for you, and you’re bursting at the seams to show everyone how you and your consciousness has grown. That’s great, but make sure your new Truth is grounded first. Think of the first trimester of pregnancy or a new sprout that hasn’t totally rooted itself yet, new beginnings are delicate and require extra care & protection at first, so pace yourself with your new discoveries. This activation spans a year (June 2014 – June 2015) so pace yourself and pay attention to what comes up now (Sept 2014) that is re-activated or revised in March 2015 and finds its footing (roots) and finally gets its final polishing activation in June 2015, right around Summer Solstice (wow!).

 

See this as an ‘unfolding new Truth’ or new aspect of Self emerging. Get a feel for the Fire. It’s a great time to expand your learning or education, get certified in something that you want to share with others, but try to avoid ideas (and people) with more flash than substance. The combination of Jupiter’s luck (which is really a strong faith & following it) and Uranus’ sudden, seeming out-of-the-blue-ness (which is really a sudden opening in your consciousness that allows you to see things in a completely new way) things will feel very “ordained” or magical or destined. Just stay grounded & present, because often when things seem ‘too good to be true’ – they are. What I’m talking about here is more about inner & outer alignment, faith & opportunity, when the path just opens before you and you have NO DOUBT that this is the (new) direction that you’re supposed to take.

 

Also unique to 2014-2015 is the Leo/Aries combination. As long as we maintain integrity, lead with the heart, be creative & authentic, remaining free & independent is easier. However, if you are struggling with self-esteem/self-worth issues, as well as being independent and capable of defining who you are/what you want, then this is your year to face your issues square on and make some real progress. Just keep in mind that what these energies trigger for you are bringing these issues/relationships into the light to be transmuted and purified with this Fire. It’s going to burn away all the excess (or illuminate it) and reveal your true beauty & innate value. Believe in your Self! Know that you are here for a reason and while your Path is unique for you, we are all sharing this journey of self-discovery & evolution of our planet. Activations will be personal, social & collective and during the next year or so, we will be creating containers for this *Fire* to burn safely & productively. Use it to connect to your Heart, Passion & True Purpose in life!

 

3/4 ~ Venus (socialize) ~trine~ Jupiter (optimism):

 

This is a most pleasant energy, although short lived. This is a good time to enjoy some kind of social activity. No pressure – just easy, laid back fun. It can make you prone to laziness, but only if you’re already prone to it. Otherwise, if you are typically constantly on the go, this energy gives you permission to kick back a little and release the usual pressures to produce. Take some time out to “smell the roses” or at least reflect on all that you HAVE accomplished and give your Self due credit for coming this far. This is a good time to go on a vacation or short trip. This energy tends to bring forth rewards for past actions. Take a moment to give thanks to the powers that be which brought you to this point!

 

3/4 ~ Venus (love) ~conjunct~ Uranus (unexpected):

 

Expect the unexpected – that’s all I can say! This energy makes you resistant to routine and drawn to new and exciting experiences – usually involving (in this case) love and relationships. Beware – a relationship may begin or end suddenly. If it begins, give it some time to discern its stability. One thing is for sure, it won’t be “the usual” – it will be with an unusual person or at the very least, unusual circumstances. Whatever you do, enjoy it and pay attention to any innovative ideas that come up around this time – they could be useful down the line.

 

3/4 ~ Venus (your values) ~square~ Pluto (transformation):

 

Hang on – it’s going to be a challenging – but hopefully enlightening – week! The first energy to contend with will have much to do with relationships. It creates very intense emotional experiences. This is more Pluto (transformative) energy, and, in this case, it’s where love is concerned. So things in relationships will change – hopefully for the better, but if they were not built on solid ground to begin with, they may crumble completely. Stability is not part of the equation at the moment, so prepare for inevitable change. You’ve probably already felt it coming, but look out, because it is here now. The natural reaction may be to try to hold on to the person or relationship, don’t give in to that temptation. Let Divine Order prevail – if it is meant to be, NOTHING can keep it from evolving to the next level, but if it is NOT meant to be, it is better to release it consciously and with the knowledge in your heart that it is best for all involved. And by all means, get the lesson so you don’t have to repeat it in the next relationship!

 

3/5 ~ Sun (core identity) ~sextile~ Pluto (transformation):

 

This is a healthy, positive, transformative energy. You will have access to energy that will help you change your immediate environment for the better and/or clear up an issue that has been pressing for some time now. It’s great for cleaning and clearing your personal space, as well as your life in general. You may have to examine the “big picture” to see where an adjustment for the good of the group is necessary. If you’re not feeling up to working on outer issues, this also gives you the opportunity to do some introspective thinking and reflection. Superficial once-over will not do, you must address the root cause for where you are at this time in your life and decide if it is working for you or against you.

Your Weekly Karmic Forecast: February 22 – 28, 2015

a message from Kelly M. Beard

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), please note that there are no missing entries, we just list the actual Activations of each week + the day they happen.

Weekly Forecast: February 22 – 28, 2015

2/22 ~ Venus (love & beauty) ~conjunct~ Mars (passion):

This is our primary feminine (Venus) and masculine (Mars) energies merging in a potent way, arousing a need to cultivate powerful relationship (whether physical/sexual or relating/socializing with others). There is a strong need for approval (on one level) and affection (on another level) from others and if you are not interacting with human beings on some level, this energy can also activate your artist nature (Venus). This a perfect time to create something (project or relationship) that is seeded by a deep, authentic love.

2/23 ~ Sun (core identity) ~square~ Saturn (responsibility):

With this energy, it is best to understand that you will have two distinct pulls within – duty versus self-gratification. It’s not nearly as bad as it feels, however, it does bring up something we all struggle with to some degree or another – SELF & OTHERS. How much do you owe your Self and how much are you obligated to others? Balance and reciprocity come to mind as guides. One of the challenges of this influence is the tendency to make assumptions without checking whether they are true. Never assume! Some people may feel restricted, as if life is too demanding and there’s never any time just for you. Others may find their lives falling apart because they have avoided responsibility for so long and now there’s no more “wiggle room”. Try to convert your impatience with seeming restriction to self-discipline – make a commitment to your Self and follow through. Physically and psychologically, your energies are low at this time. You may feel like the weight of the world is on your shoulders, but you don’t expect help because you haven’t asked for it. Remember, that is your choice. You may be reinforcing the very circumstances that make you feel lonely and isolated. What you must do is break out of the vicious cycle and take a good look around you, at your life and the people you allow in it. The events related to this transit tend to magnify the chinks in your ego structure. The purpose of discouragement is to reveal the weaknesses in your conception of your Self and to show where you must work to gain greater confidence in your Self.

2/24 ~ Venus (love & money) ~trine~ Saturn (stability):

This energy tends to make you very realistic about your relationships and is, therefore, a good time to talk about any recent challenges or future plans. Venus is the energy of love and money, so you will also be objective and somewhat conservative where both your relationships and finances are concerned. With this interaction with Saturn, I would suggest outlining a reasonable financial goals for the next 3 – 6 – 12 months. Relationships started under this influence should be fairly stable and more practical than passionate, but solid nonetheless.

2/25 ~ Mars (energy) ~trine~ Saturn (stamina):

This is a delicious combo! Saturn brings the long term goals to the table and Mars’ energy can fuel your efforts creating amazing results. This energy enables you to focus longer, attend to the details, overcome obstacles, and get more tangible results of your actions. Normally, these two get together and it is more the ‘tortoise and the hare’ energy, which can be frustrating. However, they are in a blessed position to each other and if there is any major project which needs your attention, now is the time you will likely be in the mood to tackle it and be completely supported.

2/25 ~ Sun (Self) ~conjunct~ Neptune (illusions):

This energy is known for producing two distinct effects, so watch for one or both to surface. This transit tends to make you very sensitive (rational or not) to other people. If you are one of those people who tends to put everyone else’s needs before your own, watch out, because this makes that urge even stronger. Be aware of two things: (1) most times people who focus so much on others, to the exclusion of their own needs, is because there is something about their own life they do not want to face; and (2) you could get lost in your so-called altruism to the point where you lose touch with reality. This energy is best used alone to meditate and contemplate your own world unless you can be completely detached in your charity work. I use this little motivation to decide – is your life so perfect and abundant that you can afford to spend so much time and energy on another’s life? If so, GREAT! Go for it! If not, however, then “charity begins at home” – work on YOU!
