Your Daily Horoscopes for Monday, August 24th

 

Aries 

Aries Horoscope
Aries

Today’s energies favor pleasant conversations and cooperation, dear Aries. There can be a rather sudden awareness that you need some time to yourself, and while you’re especially motivated to get things done, don’t ignore your need for down time. We are approaching a Mercury station, which can bring some challenges when it comes to being understood, but later today, the general intent is positive and cooperative, so it’s important to pay more attention to gestures than specific words chosen to express ourselves. There can be a pleasant feeling of devotion to a person, fantasy, or the idea of love today, and this can inspire creative works or ideas.

Taurus


Taurus

While the first half of the day can be somewhat temperamental, dear Taurus, there is generally good energy for warm, affectionate conversations and overtures. Surprising news may be part of it. There is particularly nice energy for combining friends and family or home life in pleasing ways, and for having an especially positive faith in the people you care about and domestic matters in general. You are more idealistic than usual, and happily, most people around you are unlikely to burst your bubble. Happiness is natural and easy, as it’s coming from within.

Gemini


Gemini

Life can be hectic in many ways today, dear Gemini, and you can find some obstacles to your personal plans, but fortunately your mood is surprisingly peaceful at heart now so that you are far more tolerant of problems. A warm communication might occur now that boosts your spirits and makes you feel understood or cared for. Your sensitivities are heightened now, and you can be especially creative in your work or projects. Artistic achievement is favored. Mercury is approaching a direct station in your sign, so that it’s important to take more time to digest events and ideas in the coming few days.

Cancer


Cancer

Tensions in the first half of the day are very likely to be resolved, and quite satisfyingly at that, in the second half, dear Cancer. This morning, you may be wrestling with restlessness and unsure of where to direct your energy. Don’t allow restlessness to rule you or to choose your mood for you. As the day advances, you can find very creative ways to satisfy a desire for safety and comfort, as well as the need to feel more adventurous and experience different things. There is good energy for making, spending, or sorting out money, taking care of valuables, as well as for a feeling of abundance.

Leo

If you’ve been ignoring your needs for deep connections, intimacy, or time to yourself recently, you’ll feel the imbalance today, dear Leo. As much as you enjoy and benefit from friendly interactions, emotionally you’re craving a little more. As the day progresses, you’re likely to come to peace with someone, and also with yourself, as your emotions smooth out. In fact, you are able to find creative ways to express your feelings and to connect with others. There may be compliments or other shows of appreciation coming your way. You might attract an admirer.

Virgo

Virgo Symbol/Glyph
Virgo

If you’ve been too busy to really spend time with a significant other or friend recently, dear Virgo, today you’ll feel the lack and you are likely to be quite anxious to make things right. It’s not easy to find that balance, however, as you can be pulled in different directions. It may be difficult to understand a partner or a job requirement, as messages you are receiving are unclear and conflicting right now. As the day advances, though, life remains busy but you’re more likely to let go of the tendency to overthink. There is very good energy for finding creative ways to satisfy your various needs and spend time with others. You can be especially gracious, and a partner or special person can be especially comforting and accepting.

Libra

Libra Glyph-Symbol
Libra

Today and the next few days can be somewhat challenging if you’re looking for clear facts or conversations, dear Libra, with Mercury approaching a direct station. However, today is wonderful for imagination, and if you pay closer attention to the intentions of the messages you’re receiving, you’ll find people are really quite cooperative. Avoid premature decisions, but enjoy the opportunities of the day, as you’re likely to get quite close to a friend or associate. While the morning can present a conundrum involving responsibilities, as the day progresses, you can find wonderful ways to satisfy your need to set things straight and tend to work, as well as your desire to socialize and network.

Scorpio

Scorpio Symbol Glyph
Scorpio

There can be some tension that results from a conflict between your will and your emotions with a Last Quarter Moon occurring just before noon today, dear Scorpio. Today and in the next few days, try to give in to the idea that you won’t get the whole picture now, and let go. Matters will reveal themselves to you soon, and you don’t have to push anything. This can be a real load off your back! As the day advances, the pace is likely quite busy, but more pleasantly so. There is very creative energy that ties your sector of romance and entertainment with your sector of career and responsibility. You may feel freer to express yourself through your work, or your more playful side to others.

Sagittarius 

Sagittarius Glyph Symbol
Sagittarius

If emotions are being released in spurts, or if you are not expressing yourself confidently, then your outbursts may be confusing to others, dear Sagittarius. Although we’re often encouraged to express our feelings, it’s sometimes kinder to ourselves and others if we sort out some of the less evolved ones on our own before releasing them. The Last Quarter Moon this morning can stimulate a strong need for comfort and groundedness, but others are also drawing you out, so you’ll have to find a balance. As the day advances, though, there is better energy for finding comfortable solutions, particularly as you may be able to satisfy the desire for familiarity as well as adventure in creative ways. A nice message or conversation can take place that puts you right at ease.

Capricorn

Capricorn Symbol/Glyph
Capricorn

Responsibilities to others or to your work can seem to clash with a sudden and strong need to explore your own interests or have an overdue conversation, dear Capricorn. While you can have a bit of a struggle trying to juggle too many activities, you’re also likely to find creative ways to tend to a variety of needs by combining them or adjusting your expectations of each. There can be a very lovely, accepting, and healing conversation or discovery of a more intimate or personal nature today. Diplomacy can help an important sale or advance today.

Aquarius


Aquarius

Relationships may be a little puzzling in the first half of the day, dear Aquarius. Your feelings may not be see-sawing, but your fears or worries may very well be. Money matters may also be an issue or cause for some concern. Even so, there is powerful energy for finding creative ways to satisfy a variety of seemingly conflicting needs. You can find ways to take risks or to enjoy yourself that don’t leave you feeling spent or overly indulgent. There is also beautiful energy for coming to an understanding with a partner or significant person. This can be due to a sense of shared values or respect for differing ones. There is more acceptance in the energy of the day that becomes you. This is a strong time generally for personal appeal and solutions to relating problems that are much more than just cosmetic.

Pisces


Pisces

People are especially amenable today, dear Pisces, and health or work can be pleasing. You are able to relax sufficiently to let your guard down. You are seeing more beauty in family, work, or simply circumstances around you, and life through this “lens” is more entertaining. You are imaginative by nature, but today this is enhanced, and can be in full force when it comes to finding different ways to enjoy your daily life. It’s a wonderful time to beautify your surroundings. It’s also a strong day for personal appeal.

Your Weekly Karma Forecast for August 16 thru 22

Weekly Forecast: August 16 – 22, 2015

For more of Kelly’s insight, please visit her website, www.KarmicTools.com

 

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: August 16 – 22, 2015

8/19 ~ Venus (relationships) ~trine~ Uranus (unique):

This energy is likely to bring a little excitement into your life, one way or another. This is a good time to do something different; shake up your routine. Seek out diversions; try something new! Relationships will have an unusual energy to them; an established relationship may sparkle with some extra “spice” or a new relationship begun under this energy will be stimulating, unusual and probably short-lived. Use this energy to soak up some good energy from those who live on the fringes!

8/21 ~ 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.

Weekly Forecast: August 9 – 15, 2015

8/12 ~ Mercury (lower mind) ~oppose~ Neptune (Higher mind):

This energy requires us to balance the Higher and lower mind. Some sensitive souls will feel bombarded by energies from all sides and it may feel like information-overload and very stressful. The best use of this transit is meditation – not making important decisions or commitments for a week or so. Communication with others is challenged, another reason to only communicate with your Higher Self – or at least check in often this week! Don’t believe everything you read or hear. Allow information to flow at a comfortable pace and wait a week for the energy to shift before making any decisions based on the information gathered. Some will access the necessary clarity for furthering their vision – others vision will be blurred and just out of reach.

8/13 ~ Sun (core identity) ~trine~ Uranus (individuality):

This energy is wonderful for a little self-examination. Look at your habits, home situation, work or anything else that is important to you and look at how you’ve gotten to where you are. What kind of choices led here? This is a good time to look around and see how you can conserve or release that which is no longer useful. It’s a good energy for organizing and clearing the decks, so to speak, of things that have piled up but still need to be dealt with or released. You’ll may be feeling very practical this week.

8/15 ~ Venus (relationships) ~conjunct~ Sun (individual): (1 of 2: 8.15.2015 & 6.16.2016)

This activates your innate creativity and gets your wheels turning about what you want to bring to life in the world, what you want to invest in and be a part of. When Sun contacts Venus, the creativity is centered around you, however, here as Venus contacts the Sun, it’s all about the creation! Use this Solar infusion to brighten & illuminate yourSelf, your surroundings or your creative projects. This expands your magnetic field and opportunities result. There is a burst of new energy wanting to be expressed through you, and it’s based on your new values & priorities. It is the beginning of a new creative cycle. Love too is a creative force, so if your relationships are more center-stage than your creative projects, then this too lends new potency to what you create with others (personal or professional). Invite or allow support and guidance from men and the Divine Masculine within and around you.

8/15 ~ Mercury (inner-voice) ~trine~ Pluto (deep connection):

This energy provokes deep delving WITHIN. You will be most inclined toward learning the meaning “behind the meaning”. You will want to explore your inner Self and try to understand it better. It is best to be alone for such research. Take a day or a weekend and grab your most powerful books and music and get somewhere beautiful if you can, if not your bedroom will do just as well – and dig deep! You are finally ready for the deeper truth, and you will be transformed by what you learn. If you must communicate with others, plan on that being deep as well. Nothing superficial today. The only warning with this energy is not to become obsessive about one particular idea – and certainly don’t try to force your particular opinion on others. If you feel the deep need to focus on one particular thing, that is fine but try to keep some perspective or write down all your revelations so you can reflect on them at a later time when you are more objective.

Healing Arts and Pagan Studies – Dragon Day Spell

Wiccan Magic

Dragon Day Spell

 

Today is the day to use dragon energy. Dragon energy is straightforward, so be careful for what you ask. You will receive it in the most direct way. Be very specific. Dragon logic is not human logic. Dragon moves from A to B, and simply removes anything in its way. For example: an acquaintance asked Dragon, without going into specifics, to change her living situation. As a result, a few days later there was a fire in her apartment building, and she was left without a place to live. That’s a change, but it was not the one she wanted! Dragon energy is great for removing blocks, but only use it when you are determined to make a change.

Using Dragon energy when you fear change will backfire on you. Pick something in your life that you wish to unblock. Find an image of a dragon that you feel connected to. Decorate your altar using bright colors and shiny, sparkly accessories. Cast a circle. Invite Dragon energy to join you in the ritual. Discuss the situation thoroughly with Dragon; consider the options, and request Dragon’s help in a way that will harm none. Ground and close the circle. You should feel energized at the end of the ritual. Dragon energy usually works quickly and in unexpected ways, so be aware of everything around you—as rapid change is on its way.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Wednesday, August 5th

 

 

 

 

Your Daily Horoscopes for Wednesday, August 5th

 

Aries

Aries Horoscope
Aries

The energies of the first half of the day are less than warm with a Venus-Saturn square, dear Aries, which tends to stimulate any insecurities you may have on an interpersonal or financial level. You could have a strong urge to splurge, but worries about your financial bottom line can leave you struggling with the desire. However, you can be especially productive, particularly later today, around the home and with work. The key to success right now is to focus on the things that need doing. If you can manage to set your own pace today, you can move mountains. It’s an excellent time for applying yourself to a meaningful project or endeavor and really making a dent. It’s also a good time for working on domestic projects that have long-term benefits. You can see the value of small but significant efforts and are patient enough to realize that good things truly do take time. Moderation is key now.

Taurus


Taurus

Again today, there is tricky and rather critical energy with you when it comes to relationships, dear Taurus, although as the day advances, the load lightens. For some of you, strides you’re making with a family relationship could be the cause of frustration for someone else who may be vying for your attention, as an example. You could be feeling pulled in different directions and it might seem that nobody wins. Confidence does build as the day advances, however. You can apply yourself to your work, projects, or interests later today, and feel that you’re making headway. Working with someone one on one can be of mutual benefit.

Gemini


Gemini

Put decision making on a shelf today, dear Gemini, and instead focus on getting the work you need to do, done. Emotional matters could interfere with your mood at times, as you may not be feeling especially confident this morning. The tendency is to expect the worst. You might feel a little burdened when it comes to work or things to do. There can be negativity or emotional distance around you, so watch for this. If you don’t feel you deserve something, you’re not likely to get it. Confidence builds as the day advances, though, and you can get a lot done. Harness the energy available to you now into something truly worth pursuing. You have an exceptional sense of what is truly valuable to you, and also of your own capabilities.

Cancer


Cancer

Some awkward energy, particularly socially, continues into today, dear Cancer, but leaves us by midday. This is not the time to rock the boat or to go out on a limb. It’s the kind of energy that supports head down, nose to the grindstone, and sticking with what has worked for you in the past. Fortunately, this is temporary. Concerns about money can be part of this, and the most obvious solution is to curb spending. As well, you may be bothered if someone in your life is not truly showing that they value you. You are sensitive to these things today. Lacking confidence creatively and romantically is a temporary thing. The second half of the day brings easier energy to focus on your priorities and enjoy the process. It’s more natural to take on responsibilities and feel good about yourself as you do.

Leo


Leo

Relationships can be a little strained in the first half of the day, dear Leo, likely as people can be more defensive and self-protective than usual with a Venus-Saturn square. You could be feeling a stronger than normal desire for others’ appreciation, but it might seem you have less than your usual takers. The fact is, it may be better to pull into yourself just for the time being, cool off, and reconsider your needs. This process can be helpful in the long run and can get you into closer touch with your true needs and values. As the day advances, you are more likely to appreciate some level of solitude to have a go at your projects or work, or for some reflection.

Virgo

Virgo Symbol/Glyph
Virgo

With a Venus-Saturn influencing us in the first half of the day, dear Virgo, there can be a lack of natural flow which makes it difficult to find satisfaction or to please others. Your desire to unwind can be challenged with a sudden need to tend to problem areas or other responsibilities. Put off making commitments instead of doing so with half your heart. As the day advances, you could find that pouring your energy into a special project can be consuming in a good way. You might enjoy working by yourself rather than with others for the time being, but teamwork can succeed as well. You might find that you get some small area of your life back on track, organized, or otherwise running smoothly, and this can be very satisfying.

Libra

Libra Glyph-Symbol
Libra

The Venus-Saturn square this morning can point to a need to get some emotional distance from a friend or a problem, dear Libra, in order to get into better touch with your feelings and what you may be missing or avoiding. It’s also a healthy reminder that you can be on your own and enjoy yourself, too. There can be feelings of being unappreciated or undervalued, and these need to be dealt with now. Avoid taking on more – think in terms of simplifying your life. Giving yourself space is important now, and later today, you might feel especially motivated to take care of business. Being productive can satisfy a need now.

Scorpio

Scorpio Symbol Glyph
Scorpio

A Venus-Saturn square this morning can remind us of a need to take time to ourselves in order to better understand our needs, dear Scorpio. There can be some minor tension or emotional distancing in your close relationships and possibly even professionally now, but it’s best not to take it too personally. It’s a good idea to try to detach yourself rather than push, probe, or cling, which may attract more problems. As the day advances, you can feel far more comfortable with your responsibilities and with your work or doing something on your own. Energy levels even or smooth out. You could get fired up about an idea or belief, and this can motivate you to pursue a new interest or renew an old one.

Sagittarius

Sagittarius Glyph Symbol
Sagittarius

There can be some tension or simply a bit of reserve sensed in your interactions in the first half of the day, dear Sagittarius. There can be resistance to new ideas or to change, but it’s temporary and not to be taken too personally. If you’re feeling out of sync or acting a little unnaturally, second-guessing yourself, then consider you need a little break, time to yourself, or a project or interest to put your energy into. Remind yourself that you can be very comfortable doing things on your own once in a while. This can boost your self-confidence and make you a little more self-reliant. As the day advances, your energy levels improve, and you are less sensitive to potential distractions.

Capricorn

Capricorn Symbol/Glyph
Capricorn

A Venus-Saturn square in the first half of the day can pull out insecurities or lead you to feel a little undervalued, dear Capricorn. You may be desirous of more closeness or intimacy, but others are not quite catching on or are simply on a different vibe. Detaching yourself from others just for a short while can be a valuable exercise at times like these. This way you can focus on things that you enjoy or that contribute to a sense of satisfaction on your own, and perhaps take the time to consider what it is you feel is lacking in your life, or what is standing in the way of satisfaction. Later today, it becomes far easier to go your own way and enjoy yourself as you do. As this happens, you might find that others seem to join in or lend a hand. Energy levels increase as the day moves forward.

Aquarius


Aquarius

This is unlikely to be the most adventurous of days, dear Aquarius, but you may very well welcome and need this right now. You are likely to seek out the familiar rather than the untried just for now. However, you could be particularly sensitive to criticism or perceived criticism now. There could also be a disappointment with a work responsibility or a person in authority. There day’s energies tend to make it easier to be productive as the day advances, and you may thoroughly enjoy your hobbies, work, or projects and be very productive. Motivation comes from a clearer end goal or sense of meaning to what you’re doing.

Pisces


Pisces

Relating patterns are unlikely to be ideal in the first half of the day, dear Pisces, with Venus and Saturn forming a square. There can be defensiveness or misunderstandings to deal with, but if you resolve to invest yourself in your practical priorities and give relationships some healthy distance, you could feel much better for it. We can’t be full-on, all the time. Concentration improves as the day advances. It’s easier to tune out distractions as you feel more motivated to handle a matter or pursue a project or personal interest. You might also find that you’re able to draw on self-discipline. Creative projects that require a practical touch or detail work can especially benefit now. Laying down the law or boundaries can be helpful as well.

You can apply yourself to your work, projects, or interests later today, and feel that you’re making headway. Working with someone one on one can be of mutual benefit.

Gemini


Gemini

Put decision making on a shelf today, dear Gemini, and instead focus on getting the work you need to do, done. Emotional matters could interfere with your mood at times, as you may not be feeling especially confident this morning. The tendency is to expect the worst. You might feel a little burdened when it comes to work or things to do. There can be negativity or emotional distance around you, so watch for this. If you don’t feel you deserve something, you’re not likely to get it. Confidence builds as the day advances, though, and you can get a lot done. Harness the energy available to you now into something truly worth pursuing. You have an exceptional sense of what is truly valuable to you, and also of your own capabilities.

Cancer


Cancer

Some awkward energy, particularly socially, continues into today, dear Cancer, but leaves us by midday. This is not the time to rock the boat or to go out on a limb. It’s the kind of energy that supports head down, nose to the grindstone, and sticking with what has worked for you in the past. Fortunately, this is temporary. Concerns about money can be part of this, and the most obvious solution is to curb spending. As well, you may be bothered if someone in your life is not truly showing that they value you. You are sensitive to these things today. Lacking confidence creatively and romantically is a temporary thing. The second half of the day brings easier energy to focus on your priorities and enjoy the process. It’s more natural to take on responsibilities and feel good about yourself as you do.

Leo


Leo

Relationships can be a little strained in the first half of the day, dear Leo, likely as people can be more defensive and self-protective than usual with a Venus-Saturn square. You could be feeling a stronger than normal desire for others’ appreciation, but it might seem you have less than your usual takers. The fact is, it may be better to pull into yourself just for the time being, cool off, and reconsider your needs. This process can be helpful in the long run and can get you into closer touch with your true needs and values. As the day advances, you are more likely to appreciate some level of solitude to have a go at your projects or work, or for some reflection.

Virgo

Virgo Symbol/Glyph
Virgo

With a Venus-Saturn influencing us in the first half of the day, dear Virgo, there can be a lack of natural flow which makes it difficult to find satisfaction or to please others. Your desire to unwind can be challenged with a sudden need to tend to problem areas or other responsibilities. Put off making commitments instead of doing so with half your heart. As the day advances, you could find that pouring your energy into a special project can be consuming in a good way. You might enjoy working by yourself rather than with others for the time being, but teamwork can succeed as well. You might find that you get some small area of your life back on track, organized, or otherwise running smoothly, and this can be very satisfying.

Libra

Libra Glyph-Symbol
Libra

The Venus-Saturn square this morning can point to a need to get some emotional distance from a friend or a problem, dear Libra, in order to get into better touch with your feelings and what you may be missing or avoiding. It’s also a healthy reminder that you can be on your own and enjoy yourself, too. There can be feelings of being unappreciated or undervalued, and these need to be dealt with now. Avoid taking on more – think in terms of simplifying your life. Giving yourself space is important now, and later today, you might feel especially motivated to take care of business. Being productive can satisfy a need now.

Scorpio

Scorpio Symbol Glyph
Scorpio

A Venus-Saturn square this morning can remind us of a need to take time to ourselves in order to better understand our needs, dear Scorpio. There can be some minor tension or emotional distancing in your close relationships and possibly even professionally now, but it’s best not to take it too personally. It’s a good idea to try to detach yourself rather than push, probe, or cling, which may attract more problems. As the day advances, you can feel far more comfortable with your responsibilities and with your work or doing something on your own. Energy levels even or smooth out. You could get fired up about an idea or belief, and this can motivate you to pursue a new interest or renew an old one.

Sagittarius

Sagittarius Glyph Symbol
Sagittarius

There can be some tension or simply a bit of reserve sensed in your interactions in the first half of the day, dear Sagittarius. There can be resistance to new ideas or to change, but it’s temporary and not to be taken too personally. If you’re feeling out of sync or acting a little unnaturally, second-guessing yourself, then consider you need a little break, time to yourself, or a project or interest to put your energy into. Remind yourself that you can be very comfortable doing things on your own once in a while. This can boost your self-confidence and make you a little more self-reliant. As the day advances, your energy levels improve, and you are less sensitive to potential distractions.

Capricorn

Capricorn Symbol/Glyph
Capricorn

A Venus-Saturn square in the first half of the day can pull out insecurities or lead you to feel a little undervalued, dear Capricorn. You may be desirous of more closeness or intimacy, but others are not quite catching on or are simply on a different vibe. Detaching yourself from others just for a short while can be a valuable exercise at times like these. This way you can focus on things that you enjoy or that contribute to a sense of satisfaction on your own, and perhaps take the time to consider what it is you feel is lacking in your life, or what is standing in the way of satisfaction. Later today, it becomes far easier to go your own way and enjoy yourself as you do. As this happens, you might find that others seem to join in or lend a hand. Energy levels increase as the day moves forward.

Aquarius


Aquarius

This is unlikely to be the most adventurous of days, dear Aquarius, but you may very well welcome and need this right now. You are likely to seek out the familiar rather than the untried just for now. However, you could be particularly sensitive to criticism or perceived criticism now. There could also be a disappointment with a work responsibility or a person in authority. There day’s energies tend to make it easier to be productive as the day advances, and you may thoroughly enjoy your hobbies, work, or projects and be very productive. Motivation comes from a clearer end goal or sense of meaning to what you’re doing.

Pisces


Pisces

Relating patterns are unlikely to be ideal in the first half of the day, dear Pisces, with Venus and Saturn forming a square. There can be defensiveness or misunderstandings to deal with, but if you resolve to invest yourself in your practical priorities and give relationships some healthy distance, you could feel much better for it. We can’t be full-on, all the time. Concentration improves as the day advances. It’s easier to tune out distractions as you feel more motivated to handle a matter or pursue a project or personal interest. You might also find that you’re able to draw on self-discipline. Creative projects that require a practical touch or detail work can especially benefit now. Laying down the law or boundaries can be helpful as well.

Lammas Bounty Spell

Lammas/Lugnasadh Comments
Lammas Bounty Spell

Lamas is also called Lughnasadh; it is a celebration of plenty and optimism, and of nature’s infinite bounty. It is the time of the first harvests, and it marks midsummer’s joyous and fanciful energy. This spirit is celebrated, too, in Shakespeare’s A Mid-Summer’s Night Dream. To tap into this energy, gather a small bundle of long grass or reeds to braid, and light a white candle.

Braid the grass as you speak this verse:
Fairies prancing in the meadow,
Spirits in the corn;
Green Man is flourishing everywhere
On this Midsummer morn.
Grains begin to ripen,
All things bear fruit.
Summer glistens with
possibility,
Blossoms take root.
Fairies whisper secrets,
Powerful blessings to see.
Cycles move and all around,
they share their gifts with me.
Air to fire,
Fire to water,
Water to earth,
Earth to air.
Elements feed spirit,
And the circle glows.
At Lammas, day and night,
We witness Nature’s awesome might.
Growing full
And blessing all,
‘Tis Earth’s celebration Before the chill of fall.
Now braiding this grass,
I mark this day
Protect my hearth,
With the abundance of grain.
The blessings of the Goddess come again;
Place the braid above my door.
Hunger be banished now and then.
Blessings be drawn to this place,
Summer’s energy fill this space.
Air, fire, water, earth unite,
And bless us all this day.

Your Weekly Karma Forecast: July 19 – 25, 2015

Weekly Forecast: July 19 – 25, 2015

 

a message from Kelly M. Beard

To view more of Kelly’s insight, please visit her website, www.KarmicTools.com

 

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: July 19 – 25, 2015

7/21 ~ 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.

7/22 ~ Mercury (your voice) ~trine~ 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.

7/23 ~ 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.

7/25 ~ Mars (action) ~square~ Uranus (freedom):

This is the “Rebel” energy – what’s your “cause”? If you are clear about your own authentic Truth & Purpose, then this energy is refreshing and uplifting. You acknowledge change is necessary (and inevitable) and you co-create with this energy to transform your current life. This is a rebirth energy too and being “reborn” is never easy. Worth it – but not easy. However, if you are NOT clear about who you are and what you’re capable of, this energy shines a light on that aspect of your life which you instinctively already know needs an overhaul but for whatever reason you are still holding on to the old habits/patterns. Unwilling or unable to embrace change at this time, you only increase the feeling of being restricted by external energies. Your life is a direct reflection of what’s going on inside you. How’s it lookin’? Check your ego, recommit to your Truth and remember that change is GOOD! And if you don’t go voluntarily (read: consciously), then you’ll get dragged to the new level, kicking and screaming and you’ll be so exhausted when you get there that you may miss the beauty in evolving to the next level. (This IS what you’ve been working toward, correct?) Remember, conscious, effective action creates FREEDOM.
