Your Weekly Karma Forecast for June 28 through July 4

Weekly Forecast: June 28 – July 4, 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: June 28 – July 4, 2015

6/29 ~ 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!

7/1 ~ Venus (values) ~conjunct~ Jupiter (truth):

This is an extremely powerful energy that makes you very mentally “present” to the fact that both your values and your truth are shifting. You can connect to material abundance. This is usually a pleasant shift because it is about expanding your sense of authentic beauty, as in nature, and the interrelatedness of all living things. There is an energy of enthusiasm around new or growing relationships which attracts more positive energy. This is the best time to create and “expect miracles”!

7/1 ~ 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 thru to you.

7/2 ~ 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!

7/3 ~ Mercury (your voice) ~sextile~ Jupiter (expansion):

This energy can make you focus on the larger issues in your life. Your dreams are tapping you on the shoulder, demanding some attention. Mundane issues do not concern you, you want to figure out how to create the life you’ve been imagining. This energy also provokes within you the understanding that being generous naturally attracts generosity to you (and your cause). You’re focused on the big picture and overall patterns which have lead you to this point. Feeling clear, sharp, alert and optimistic, your realize that anything you can imagine, you can achieve.

Daily Planet Tracker: Pluto in Capricorn, Now Until Mar 23, 2023


Planet Tracker

Pluto in Capricorn

Now Until Mar 23, 2023

The planet of transformation ends its 13-year stay in religious Sagittarius, a period when fundamentalist beliefs have radically changed the world. The next phase, Pluto’s entry into organizational Capricorn, will alter the nature of corporations, nations and international groups of all kinds. The planet Pluto and sign Capricorn share a strong sense of intention and focus that are likely to increase efficiency in many domains. However, their mutual hunger for results can repress compassion and contrary views that might slow down the inexorable march forward. The power of corporations will probably reach a tipping point during Pluto’s 15-year stay in Capricorn. It is possible that multi-nationals will grow so strong that they will supplant governments as primary sources of authority. While some believe that this has already occurred, we can expect a further erosion of state control or a strong reaction against corporations that eventually reduces their dominance. This reflects the Pluto paradox as this planet both intensifies and purifies, concentrating force and yet, eventually, breaking down structures to eliminate excess.

Pluto and Capricorn are more about collective structures than personal ones, yet we will still experience this transit as individuals. Stripping away unwieldy and outmoded ambition can challenge us to reconsider our goals, even our most treasured ones. Pluto raises the stakes in whatever game you’re playing, challenging you to increase your commitment or to leave the table. Again, there is a risk of becoming so focused on achieving results that flexibility is lost. It’s hard to keep an open mind in a tunnel, so burrowing through the boundaries of certainty is a healthy counterpoint for balancing Pluto in Capricorn’s excessive determination.

Pluto is associated with the psychological shadow, making it more common place to project negative images on authority figures. While we can hope that its transit through Capricorn may purge destructive elements from the culture, an even more productive application of this force is to question the certainty of your own beliefs. A willingness to re-examine them cuts away lazy thinking and outmoded concepts that inhibit growth and the full realization of our potential.

Ideally, Pluto brings us to the essence of issues and, in Capricorn, will lead to a transformation of the social order, one in which the extreme inequities of power and resources are overcome by a burgeoning awareness of our shared humanity. Extreme danger from environmental issues is one less than desirable way in which our priorities can become redirected. Yet as more and more individuals take responsibility for themselves, the power of transformation can come from within and be a consciously creative force for change. When each of us faces our fears and turns darkness into light we can reshape the world with love and hope rather than reacting to pain and fear. is a DailyInsightGroup Site

A Daily Planet Tracker Of Sorts: Pluto Retrograde

Pluto Retrograde

Feel the effects of transformational Pluto’s dark side

Sure, Pluto was demoted in astronomy back in 2006. But in Astrology, Pluto is one of the most unpredictable planets, and it will be even more unpredictable as Pluto is retrograde in the serious sign of Capricorn from now to Sept. 25, 2015.

At times, deep Pluto is a cosmic detective, determined to find the real story; other times Pluto is like an outspoken dinner guest who blurts out secrets and reveals hidden truths about everyone at the table.

When a planet goes “retrograde,” or, appears to be moving backwards through the sky, it often creates a “Bizarro World” of everything it stands for — communication planet Mercury Retrograde creates miscommunication, for example. But Pluto’s backward shift doesn’t make us confused, it makes us reflective. Instead of Pluto creating sticky situations in the outside world, it forces us to look inward.

First, it’s important to realize that Pluto was named after the Roman god of the underworld — aka, the land of the dead. Like its namesake, the planet Pluto rules over the shadow side of everything and everyone. So when Pluto is charged up and moving direct (forward), issues of corruption and buried stories may surface; we could learn that a politician has been taking bribes, a celebrity has been having an affair, or that a friend has been saying negative things about us behind our backs.

When Pluto brings out your dark side

So when Pluto goes retrograde, it forces us to focus on our own personal shadow sides — specifically, the unpleasant parts of our personalities that we may not really like. Two big themes that Pluto likes to highlight are power and desire. With Pluto retrograde, we’ll have to get honest with ourselves about how much we’re motivated by a need for recognition, money and authority.

At the same time, we might have to confront the darker sides of what we want; for example, are you working hard to get in shape because you are truly concerned about your health, or are you spurred by a desire for revenge on an ex who didn’t appreciate you?

With Pluto retrograde for five months, this period of personal reckoning allows us to do a lot of purging, too. Once we see traits in ourselves that we dislike, we can work to improve them. We can also revisit old hurts and hang-ups as Pluto sheds light on the darker corners of our experiences. In this way we can grow, which highlights Pluto’s key role in our lives: transformation. is a DailyInsightGroup Site

On Life after the Uranus/Pluto Square

On Life after the Uranus/Pluto Square

a message from Sarah Varcas

To view more of Sarah’s insight, please visit her site, Awakenings, Intuitive Astrology for Heart and Soul


Uranus and Pluto have received a lot of air time since 2012 when they began to form their lengthy square that is currently fading into history. The impact of this square, which has shaken up countless peoples’ lives, has been impossible to ignore. For many, looking back to life pre 2012 is like watching a different person, barely recognisable in some cases. So much has changed, within and without, that the notion of total rebirth is not too drastic a description of the events of recent years. Many people have been shaken awake by this square, forced to confront themselves and their lives, the consequences of choices previously made and the impact of living a half-life in the shadows of possibility for so long. It has been a time of both trauma and ecstasy, challenge and liberation. Few have been left untouched. The initiation into the Aquarian Age has well and truly begun.

Like all initiations, however, it is just the beginning, not the whole story, and true strength is born of knowing how to respond after the intensity has passed and the next phase has begun. This is where we find ourselves now. The energetic themes of the past three years are lifting and changing, morphing into something altogether different. Uranus and Pluto are parting ways, releasing their grip each upon the other. This signals a parting within us too, for as above so below. Change comes in new guises now and we need to recognise it when it arrives at our door.

Uranus and Pluto are hugely powerful planetary heavyweights. Together they augur the birth of global cycles and massive societal change. When two planets square each other we are forced to take action or endure mounting intensity and frustration. Our environment constantly blocks and obstructs us, pens us into a corner, pushes us away from where we need to be until we take responsibility for our own lives and make the changes necessary for true progress and deep transformation. Pluto rules the shadow, those parts of ourselves we avoid and ignore, deny and project on to others. In its square with Uranus we have been faced with the consequences of doing so as our shadow has repeatedly risen up to meet us from the outside, confronting us with the consequences of trying to be someone we’re not, of refusing to claim our sovereignty, of living small and safe when we needed to break out and risk freedom. Uranus, the Great Awakener, creates radical disruption. It demands nothing but truth, no matter how shocking. It perceives a future in which there are no lies, no fear and no constriction. This prospect may seem dangerous in our world as it stands, but Uranus is not of this world and will not abandon its agenda to accommodate our earthbound aspirations.

This is the truth of working with cosmic forces: they demand of us largesse and greatness, not in terms of egoic acclaim and narcissistic absorption but of being big enough, wise enough, powerful enough to see beyond the limitations of the egoic mind to something beyond our imaginings. They demand that we live on the cliff-edge of life, the very boundary of possibility where we are forever challenged to go further. They demand profound integrity, searing honesty and a willingness to change in ways that may seem impossible from where we currently stand. When giants such as Uranus and Pluto square each other, despite the incredible intensity of their action, we are somehow more able to respond. We simply have no choice. We find what we need inside to do what they demand. Even, and especially, when we believe we won’t. For all the stress and pain of their action in our lives, the outcome is also beyond our wildest imaginings as we discover strength we never knew we had, options we never imagined could be ours and a life awaiting us which reanimates those parts within previously left to wither and die. It is tough, for sure, but the changes we undergo when we offer ourselves up to these processes of deep and enduring transformation make the offering worthwhile. Sacrifices made are repaid many-fold in the currency of wisdom, freedom and true presence in the midst of our mysterious life. What started out as tragedy and trauma becomes rebirth and new life. Against all the odds we arise from the flames to live another day.

This has been the story for so many in the past three years. This month that story begins to change as the Uranus/Pluto square dissolves. As these commanding planets part ways their impact is modified and we will meet them in different guises on the path ahead. No longer is it the case that in meeting one we meet the other. They’re no longer a team. Yes, Uranus still wants to throw everything up in the air and Pluto still reveals the darkest depths to shed the brightest light upon them. But they’re doing things in their own way now and that means we must adapt accordingly. Life won’t force us quite like it has been. It won’t so much be the case of ‘I can’t bear another minute I simply have to change no matter what’. We’re going to have to make some conscious, risky decisions born not of utter necessity (change or die!) but out of a deep inner knowing that if we are to play a full part in the evolution of this planet, we simply have to do what needs to be done, end of. It is both our birthright and obligation as custodians of this time and place.

From this point on it may become easier, gradually, to avoid change, to find excuses not to do it, to sink back into old habits with plenty of justifications for doing so. The choice is ours now, more so than before, simply because it won’t be so hard to stay stuck. It really is up to us. Pluto will still come along and stir up the darkness and Uranus will still be hitting us over the head screaming ‘WAKE UP BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE!!’, but they’ll somehow be easier to ignore. Our defences will be stronger, our denial and/or self-deception more effective. If we simply want an ‘easy life’ we’re more likely to get one now. But easy is not necessarily better. And after a few decisions to stay safe, step out of the ring, stay stuck rather than change, we may begin to look around and realise we have been left behind, companions on the path gone ahead, potential withering on the vine, possibilities once close now out of reach.

The urgency fades as the square between Uranus and Pluto does. Which doesn’t mean change is not needed, only that we have more choice in our role as its agents. We can step back from the cliff edge if we choose. Step out of the fray, batten down the inner hatches and stick our feet into the mud refusing to move again. ‘Those last three years were a heck of a ride, so I’ve done my bit now thank you! Over to someone else!!’. But you are that ‘someone else’ and so am I. So is everybody. We are all the someone else to whom is handed the baton now for the next lap of the race. If we discover the pressure is off and life offers a ‘get out’ clause when the going gets tough, that doesn’t mean the clause is the best option, only that the challenge is met now in the choices we make not in our ability to endure when change is inescapable. It is up to us to decide how we proceed from here, whether we settle for what we have or embrace our role as Evolutionary Agent for the long haul. We always have a choice and there will always be different forces and factors which influence it. Uranus and Pluto have driven us through the flames but now they take a different tack. Still as powerful, still as transformative, still as liberating, they come individually, inviting us to enter into their shadow dance and scary ride of freedom. But they are less insistent, less demanding. Their intensity will rise and fall as ever, but the imperative that felt like ‘change or die!!’ is lifting. We’re entering the next phase now, where we choose radical change because we know it is the only way to fulfil our evolutionary potential, not because we simply believe we have no choice. We have a choice, always. And never was it more vital than now that we make the wisest one.

Happy Days Are Here Again

Happy Days Are Here Again

The future is bright as Uranus and Pluto part ways

Maria DeSimoneMaria DeSimone on the topics of blogs, astrology, 2015

Without fail, the most common phrase I’ve heard since 2015 began is: “So far, this year stinks. When will it get better?”

Believe me; I hear ya.

It’s now safe for me to tell you that the rest of 2015 will not be as stressful as the onset of it. In fact, from here on out, life will slowly begin to calm down for many of us. The storms in our lives might not be completely gone, but they have certainly shifted to a lower intensity.

Dark days

This is major news because for many of us, since 2012, life has thrown one curve ball after the other, giving us little time to put on our boxing gloves … or at least duck for cover! Uranus, the planet of chaos, revolution, and sudden change, has been clashing with Pluto, the planet of intense elimination and regeneration, for the last three years. On March 16, 2015, we experienced the final exact hit between these two “planets behaving badly.” But then the Lunar Eclipse on April 4 woke up that sensitive degree where Uranus and Pluto met for their final brawl — 15 degrees of any Cardinal sign (Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn).

Friends, I can unequivocally tell you that I have felt this planetary boxing match in my chart in the same over-the-top tumultuous way that any of you with personal planets or chart angles in early to mid-degree Cardinal signs have. Our lives have been beat, shattered, decimated and then — just for good measure — we’ve been kicked while we were already down for the count.

Now, FINALLY, a new dawn is upon us. Future eclipses will not trigger Uranus and Pluto, because these guys are finally parting ways and moving on. Sure, they will be close to each other for a little while longer, but there’s a difference now: they’ve made a decision; they’re done with each other; they each said, “We fought our best fight. Game over.” And that means your life will calm down and the chaos will settle. The destruction now has a chance to be cleared away for something new and brighter to come into your life.

The shining light

On April 8 Jupiter, the planet of expansion, abundance, and faith, turned direct in magnanimous Leo after having been retrograde for several months. Sure, Jupiter is retrograde for half the year all the time, but the timing of his direct motion this year so close after that nasty Lunar Eclipse on April 4 was an extra-special blessing. It’s like the universe said: “Ok, I hear your cries. It’s time to bring in the Calvary.” What better way to relieve all the suffering than Jupiter moving direct in bright, sunny Leo?

Ah, yes my friends. You can be sure that this May we’ll enjoy plenty of flowers in the garden of life. Heck, after all those showers I think we’ve more than earned them.

Life might not be perfect, but the point is, the pressures will begin to lift enough for us to once again feel that we’re able to enjoy the journey. So to answer your question about when 2015 will get better, I’m thrilled to tell you that time has arrived.

Happy Days ARE here again. is a DailyInsightGroup Site

Astrology of Today – April 16, 2015

Astrology of Today – April 16, 2015


The possibility of misunderstandings is high today with Mercury in awkward angle to Saturn and in minor challenge with Chiron. As well, Pluto is stationing, and this shift tends to bring about some confusion, heaviness, and magnification of problems. Pluto’s retrograde from now until the last week of September is a good period for research and gaining new insight into our need for control, self-destructive tendencies, and our search for the truth by looking within. Outward pressures can ease.
•The Moon is in Pisces until 4:59 PM.
•The Moon is void until 4:59 PM (since yesterday at 5:36 PM).
•The Moon is in Aries from 4:59 PM forward (until Saturday, April 18th at 5:31 PM).
•The Moon is in its Waning Crescent phase (a New Moon will occur on the 18th).
•The Moon is waning.
•Pluto comes to a retrograde station (Pluto is retrograde from April 16 to September 25).

Astrology of Today – April 15, 2015


Shortly into the day, a Venus-Saturn opposition perfects, and we may be facing up to areas of neglect or weakness, and possibly dealing with disappointments. While the rest of the day should have a somewhat heavy quality to it with Pluto nearing a station, we are not as likely to feel blocked or stifled, and in fact can have powerful intuition, ideas, and insights.
•The Moon is in Pisces all day (until Thursday, April 16th, at 4:59 PM).
•The Moon is void from 5:36 PM forward (until tomorrow at 4:59 PM).
•The Moon is in its Last Quarter phase / Waning Crescent phase from 9:00 AM forward.
•The Moon is waning.
•Mercury spends its first full day in Taurus (Mercury transits Taurus from April 14-30).
•Pluto is nearing a retrograde station (Pluto will turn retrograde tomorrow night).

Your Energetic Support Report ~ March 20 – April 20, 2015

Energetic Support Report ~ March 20 – April 20, 2015

a message from Kelly M. Beard

For more of Kelly’s insight, please visit her website

In General ~ there are powerful additional energies & entities surrounding any personal activations you may be experiencing. This continues, with the first Pisces eclipse (of 6) on Equinox. Essentially, it is the ‘end of the end’ and the ‘beginning of the beginning’ ~ an unbelievable clean slate/rebirth. Closure will likely be a process but try to stay focused on NOW-Future (do not linger overlong, in the Past).

4/4 ~ LIBRA Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse ~ This is #4 of 6 in the Aries/Libra Eclipse Series. Individually, you may be feeling the need to create more balance within & more reciprocal relationships with others. Remember, eclipses happen twice a year, and always give energy for change, so anything you are truly ready to release (within or with others) is much easier during these times. Also, keep in mind that to release any imbalanced/toxic situations now, is to create space for your own rebirth with the Aries New Moon.

4/8 ~ Jupiter Direct in LEO ~ Jupiter spends 1yr in Leo (June 2014-July 2015) and is retro 4mo of the year, every year. This year’s focus is Leo, self- love, heart, courage, what you believe you are worth. It’s also time to trust your Heart more (have faith) and give your Inner Child some love & playtime. After the retro period of reviewing what you believe about these issues and how they manifest in your life and relationships, now, you can go forward and weave in more *fun* ~ lighten up, play, learn, explore.

4/16 ~ Pluto Retro in CAPRICORN ~ Pluto is the planet of death, rebirth and transformation. So when it Retrogrades be prepared to allow some part of you or your life to “die” … and be transformed anew. I call this ‘diving for treasure’! Often, you have to go through a release of some sort, this allows you to get past the usual roadblocks within and you always come back with something rare & valuable … and yours! Ready or not, it is time for you to move on to the next level. There is always some unknown aspects about change and moving into the future. The more you resist it, the harder it will be. It’s okay to mourn any true loss or death, but trust that whatever leaves your life at this time has likely been on it’s way out for a while whether you were consciously aware of it or not. If there is any deep, dark secret or part of your Self you have avoided or suppressed, prepare for it to come up and out to be dealt with once and for all. That’s the nature of Pluto, it takes away the very thing you think you cannot live without, only for you to find out that you CAN. It’s also an annual cleansing, so on one hand you should be familiar with the process, but on the other hand, it’s never easy when Pluto slows down, but it’s always worth it. Also good to consider is its lengthy stay in Capricorn (16yrs-2008-2024) so that is where the primary digging is going on, helping you clear out unstable foundations and get stronger internally along the way.

4/18 ~ ARIES New Moon ~ is an Annual Initiation, a time when you can *seed* your NEW Identity/Authentic Self ~ on a soul level (Moon). Mars, Aries’ ruler, reveals how you embody & express who you are and your preferred method of getting what you deeply desire out of life so, it would seem that getting what you want is directly related to who/what you think you are. You are different post-2012. Your frequency is higher, your consciousness has been expanded & you are learning how to walk & talk again. Time to set new goals.

LIBRA/ARIES ~ Nodes & Eclipses 2013-2016 ~ The last series we dealt with was 2004-2006 (more Aries-focused) and before that, 1995- 1997 (more Libra-focused & the cycle we are rebooting NOW). Do those years stand out for you? In regard to your Individuality & Relationships? Self vs Other? Independence & Partnership? This is a time when we are rebirthing our Identity on such a major level, that it will naturally rattle the Relationships we have (personal or professional). When YOU change, everyone around you has to adjust (and change) or go away. It’s not a bad thing, but really happens regularly within this Lunar Rhythm and HELPS us breathe new life into ourselves, as well as our relationships, partnerships & collaborations. Right now, rebooting the 19-year cycle with Libra North Node indicates that we are seeding the NEW ways of creating conscious equal partnership between Self/Other/Community/ World and all Life.

Jupiter in LEO ~ June 2014 – July 2015 ~ Rx: 12.8.2014 / Direct: 4.8.2015 This is a once- in-12 year opportunity to expand the Leo area of your life and *Edit Your Story* (in that department – House) by weaving in those components that express your true nature & innocent child’s heart within. In social & learning circles, it’s time to integrate more fun, imagination and inspired, creative self-expression. This is a time to give some energy to what you believe you are worth, how you define beauty & abundance and how you share your Light & radiate Love to others. You are supported to drop the OLD Story and start writing/telling a NEW Story that integrates more joy, optimism & faith.

Pluto’s Annual Retrograde ~ This is a pretty subtle process for most, but if you have Aries/Libra/Cancer/Capricorn in your chart, then you are feeling it; if you have any direct contact from Pluto to your chart, you are feeling it; if you are working on Pluto issues (death, sex, money, power & Underworld), then you are feeling it. Intensely. The thing to do is to work with it consciously, meaning CHOOSE something to release & allow to die, so that something new can be born through you. When it retrogrades, that is the time when you do more personal work, behind the scenes (internally) but often, you also find *Buried Treasure* – either something you buried yourself long ago, lost long ago or are only NOW ready to handle its power, so it is revealed to you.
