Your Love Horoscopes for the Week of August 17th





Your Love Horoscopes for the Week of August 17th

by Maria DeSimone


General Weekly Love Horoscope


Are you ready for some excitement? Good because it’s coming — with lightning speed! On Wednesday, Venus (still retrograde) will make a brilliant link to Uranus, the planet of sudden developments. Although Venus is not at her most potent, the positive connection to Uranus will surely benefit everyone when it comes to love potential. Think back to June 29, when Venus was direct and in the same link to Uranus. It’s possible that you’ll have a continuation with a romance theme stemming from that time. Enjoy it while you can because on Friday, the Sun will square off with Saturn, throwing a wet blanket on pleasure potential for everyone. It’s not about romantic delight this weekend unfortunately … it’s about work. At least you’ll have something to look forward to early this week. Make the most of it!


Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

An exhilarating week can be yours — if you’re willing to be in the moment. Most likely you will be since you’re a leap before you look kind of sign. In matters of the heart, however, this isn’t always the best approach. Even so… if you are open to trying something new and getting out of your romantic comfort zone there’s every indication that you’ll be thrilled you did. If single, accept a first date with someone who isn’t your usual type. Expect to be amazed!


Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

You’re starting to feel more and more hopeful about your romantic prospects now that Jupiter is moving through your 5th House of True Love. This week, it looks like you’re also one step closer to cleaning up a domestic related mess that has hindered you from enjoying a healthy love life. You’re not completely out of the muck just yet, but at long last, you can see a heart at the end of the tunnel. Yes!


Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

If you’re single and have been going back and forth over whether or not to re-join one of those dating websites, this is the week to say YES. Retrograde Venus in your communication sector will make a brilliant link to surprise a minute Uranus in your social 11th house. This is also the part of your chart ruling the Internet and technology. There’s a good indication that you might re-connect with a past lover through social media as well. Sparks may fly all over again. Yum!


Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

It may seem as though love bites this week … and you may have a few wounds to lick because of it. On Friday, the Sun will square off with Saturn, the planet of restriction and limitation. Saturn is moving through your true love sector, while the Sun is in the part of your chart connected to self-worth. You might have a difficult time feeling as if you’ll ever find true love again and be tempted to settle for something less than you know you deserve. Don’t fall into that trap.


Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Romantic potential will be brightest for you on Wednesday. There’s a possibility that you and your sweetheart will decide to take a vacation together in order for you both to re-connect. If so, be sure to choose a destination you’ve both been to before — and absolutely love. Try not to allow a domestic situation ruin your positive romantic vibes this week. That might be extra difficult to achieve on Friday.


Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Think back to a theme connected to your love life that emerged around June 20. It might have involved joint finances or your intimate world — but it was definitely positive. This week, it appears that there’s a second phase connected to that time and once again, you’ll benefit from it. The most interesting part about this is that whatever is happening, it’s going to happen behind the scenes. Don’t be concerned — that’s the way you want it.


Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Elation is sure to be yours this Wednesday! If you’re in a relationship with someone, the two of you are likely to branch out and try something new and exciting together. This might be slightly experimental but you’ll both crave the erratic part of it — in fact it’ll make your hearts beat faster! The only problem is that on Friday you’ll be reminded that sometimes, excitement can be quite expensive. Don’t break the bank.


Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

There’s so much promise for you socially that it’s sure to help your romantic prospects. If you’re in a relationship then you and your partner might start to branch out more and find amazing couples friends that you enjoy going out with together. Another possibility is that you and your mate will decide to join a new group or organization together, expanding your social circle in that way. If single, all you need to do is look to your friends for new dating options.


Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Expect to have quite an adventure this week with your lover. He or she might sweep you off your feet this Wednesday with a whirlwind surprise that is sure to delight you. This will be something that expands your horizons while also reconnecting the two of you romantically. This will surely be a welcome change of pace since you’ll both depart from your usual routine in order to try something new. How exciting!


Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You and your partner might not want to stray too far from home. Why? There’s a great indication that you’ll enjoy an ultra-sexy time together on Wednesday — without leaving your cozy abode. Whatever you do, avoid allowing your friends to get in the way of your private affairs this week. It looks like there’s at least one pal who will try to kill your buzz and make you focus more on what’s wrong in your love life than what’s right.


Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

On Wednesday, you and your partner can expect to reach new heights together — and it all begins with the power of your mind. Be sure to share your most “out there” ideas with your mate. He or she won’t think you’re crazy. In fact, there’s every indication that you’ll feel extra supported as you share your most innovative thoughts. A difficult career related situation on Friday however, threatens to sour your romantic potential for the weekend. Do your best to get around it.


Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

There might be some more ups and downs connected to romance this week. On Wednesday you may feel like you’re on cloud nine with your lover. He or she seems to bring out the best in you, is making you feel like a million bucks and seems to want to help you manage the most unmanageable parts of your life. On Friday however, the highest of highs may turn into the lowest of lows. You might discover a moral sticking point, religious difference or other philosophical dilemma that you have. You won’t be able to overlook it.

Get A Jump On Tomorrow, Your Horoscopes for Thursday, August 13th




Get A Jump On Tomorrow…..

Your Horoscopes for Thursday, August 13th


General Horoscope

Cosmic messages issue conflicting commands today, testing our abilities to navigate through these turbulent times. A stressful Saturn-Pluto alignment that lasts for days reveals our resistance to inevitable change. However, nothing stops us from taking risks while the Sun harmoniously trines radical Uranus. Meanwhile, the Moon is partying in audacious Leo, encouraging us to ride the shifting tides rather than trying to cling to the status quo.


Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Curbing your enthusiasm sounds like a smart strategy today, but your excitement will probably overtake your common sense. Naturally, it’s not wise to express everything you feel because some desires are better kept to yourself. You could stir up a hornet’s nest if you broadcast your needs to everyone before reassessing the ramifications of your actions. Luckily, you still may be able to stretch the envelope as long as you stay aware of the larger circumstances and don’t push your luck too far.


Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

It’s highly tempting when an unexpected event offers you the good fortune to participate in a mind-blowing activity. However, you’re still likely to honor previous commitments and exhibit some self-restraint. Thankfully, you should be able to play both sides of the game and embark on the adventure as long as it doesn’t upset family dynamics at home. Recent experiences increase your wisdom, but the window of opportunity to walk on the edge is closing. If you don’t act quickly, you could lose this chance forever.


Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

Ironically, a fortuitous twist to today’s events can add to your concerns about your future, but there’s no need to worry if you remain flexible about your current plans. Although it might feel as if you are at an impasse, the transition you have been dreaming about could occur without much resistance now. Your life is on the upswing, even it’s not unfolding according to your timetable. Don’t waste precious time reanalyzing your options; show your courage and take a giant leap of faith.


Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

Your current fascination with being different reveals a surprising side of your personality. You may not be interested in the opinions of others now, so unsolicited advice won’t have much impact on your current choices. This is the opportunity you’ve been anticipating; go ahead and act like the nonconformist you secretly want to be — even if it’s just for a day. The emotional satisfaction you earn is priceless and worth every penny.


Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

If you can’t be the leader of your pack, you’ll likely want to leave it and head out on your own. In any event, the same old routine is not appealing to you as the willful Sun in your sign syncs up with rebellious Uranus. Be insistent about your independence if you want to shake things up. Fortunately, if you share your plans with those you trust, you might be pleasantly surprised by their support. It’s better to have allies in your corner, even if you ultimately need to travel your path alone.


Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You’re wary of relying on others because you’re afraid someone might do a disappearing act just as things get serious. Ultimately, the apparent instability of those around you may be a reflection of your unwillingness to participate in an unhealthy relationship. But you don’t have to convince anyone to do your bidding now. It’s your turn to star in your story instead of waiting for anyone else to steal the show. Shine, baby, shine.


Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Sticking to your schedule isn’t so simple today because unforeseen events make it nearly impossible to carry on with your original plans. Nevertheless, there’s no reason to be agitated by things you cannot control. Let a few lower-priority projects slip for a day or two. Putting the pieces back together in a more constructive manner will be easier once you break the routine. Don’t resist change now; there’s a treasure to be found in the chaos if you’re willing to experience it head on.


Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Sometimes innovation requires hard work, yet inspiration seems to strike today without much effort on your part. Positive change is in the air, so stop trying to manage your life with worn-out rules. However, your plans might fall apart if you assume a laissez-faire attitude. Revise your playbook for the day and you’ll gain the edge you need. Instead of just focusing on your own ambition, work out a strategy that’s beneficial to everyone. Your progressive ideas and unconventional tactics can rock everyone’s world.


Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

There is a wide gulf between your need for emotional security and your craving for a new adventure. Your plans are being stress-tested by an anything-goes trine from wild Uranus to the brilliant Sun in your 9th House of Big Ideas. Unfortunately, your overconfidence might entice you to gamble foolishly on something that’s not that important in the long run. Being a creative visionary is admirable, but not if you jeopardize your recent progress. Taking a calculated risk is worth it only if you consider all the variables first.


Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

A cosmic wake-up call rings through on all your digital devices today, reminding you to include others in your latest plans as electric Uranus trines the Sun in your 8th House of Shared Investments. Go ahead and reveal your best ideas — even if they aren’t ready for prime time yet — with a possible partner. Someone who respects your integrity will see the positive potential in your thinking and will likely jump in to join your endeavors. The more the merrier; the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.


Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Somehow you can get away with the craziest of ideas today. In fact, you’re quite skilled at taking an ingenious concept to a whole new level now. Your coworkers may urge you to put your thoughts into action, even if they want you to modify some details of your plan first. This is dangerous territory because accommodating someone else’s concerns could actually weaken your strategy. But walking away might be a bigger mistake. Retreat just long enough to alleviate the tension, take a few deep breaths and try again. Don’t let anyone else steal your thunder.


Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

The atmosphere is crackling with excitement and your life is buzzing with surprises; however, you might not be so amused with the current uncertainty. You have had your share of unexpected detours lately, and you’re not looking for any more delays now. Luckily, your resiliency empowers you to improve your plan and achieve a successful launch. Be daring in your thinking and persistent in your execution. Practice makes perfect. is a Daily Insight Group Site

Your Weekly Karma Forecast: June 21 – 27, 2015

Weekly Forecast: June 21 – 27, 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 21 – 27, 2015

6/22 ~ Jupiter (Education/Faith) ~trine~ Uranus (Awakening/Liberation):

(3 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). 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!

6/23 ~ 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.

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.

Revolutionary Uranus’ entry into the first sign of the zodiac, Aries, is a major signal for collective change. This shocking planet tends to shake the world with surprising events and individual breakthroughs. We are stepping into a new era of human history in which problems and solutions can break out with equal rapidity and in equally unexpected ways. Although it’s the misapplication of technology that is primarily responsible for environmental damage, innovations in power generation and transportation could help us establish a healthier balance with nature. The last time Uranus was in Aries (1927-34) was when Charles Lindbergh made the first transatlantic airplane flight, the discovery of penicillin, the initial television broadcasts and significant developments in quantum physics occurred. We may be on the brink of another technological renaissance.

Aries is the sign of the individual and independent Uranus’ sojourn in this sign marks the next major changes in personal identity. Psychology could make sudden leaps with the reintroduction of psychedelic therapies while rapid advances in brain research may redefine the very notion of self. Electric Uranus in fiery Aries stimulates nervous systems and can simultaneously awaken a newfound sense of genius that initiates millions of brilliant ideas while provoking further alienation for individuals with less adaptable minds. The relationship between humans and computers will grow closer with Uranus in Aries, continuing to blur the lines between them.

It is likely that more radical ideas about our future on this planet will emerge during the next seven years. Breaking away from the old models of biological evolution and religious explanations for our origins is expected. This is a period when humanity reinvents itself with major revisions in our understanding of the self and our relationships to one another. There is a brave new world rising from the sea of the collective unconscious to awaken the next stage of human development.

Some famous folks with Uranus in Aries include Rene Descartes, Oliver Cromwell, Friedrich Nietzsche, Thomas Edison, Annie Besant, Luther Burbank, Cesar Chavez, Coretta Scott King, Serge Gainsbourg, Maya Angelou, Che Guevara, Noam Chomsky, Philip K. Dick, Ursula Le Guin, Ross Perot, Paul Krasner and Elvis Presley. is a DailyInsightGroup site

Your Weekly Karmic Forecast for March 15 – 21, 2015

Weekly Forecast: March 15 – 21, 2015

a message from Kelly M. Beard

Read more of Kelly’s insight at


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.


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




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

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.
