Kelly M. Beard: Weekly Forecast: August 30- September 5, 2015

Weekly Forecast: August 30 – September 5, 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: August 30 – September 5, 2015

8/31 ~ Sun (ego) ~oppose~ Neptune (dissolution):

This can be a very confusing energy. You will be very sensitive to others and their needs and how they relate to your own. You may want to withdraw or not voice your opinion just to avoid conflict, feeling like it wouldn’t solve anything anyway. However, do not give in to the temptation of being “slick” either, that will only bring more challenges your way. You may want to give in to another person’s demands when you have a valid reason not to. Avoid playing the victim. Be honest and up-front with anyone demanding a confrontation at this time, that you would rather gather your thoughts and discuss things later (by then this energy will have passed) when you can articulate your side of things better. Be aware of deception – both on your part and/or the part of others (trying to deceive you). Your discernment is not its strongest under this influence so it is best to be still and quiet until the energy passes. Take this time to do some spiritual, inner work.

9/1 ~ Venus (love & beauty) ~conjunct~ Mars (passion): (2 of 3: 2.22.2015 & 11.2.2015)

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

9/5 ~ Sun (core-identity) ~trine~ Pluto (transformation):

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

Your guide to planetary energies for

August 31 to September 6, 2015

By Pam Younghans

Highlighted Aspects This Week
MON: Sun opposite Neptune, Venus conjunct Mars
WED: Jupiter sesquiquadrate Uranus
THU: Mercury quincunx Neptune
SAT: Sun trine Pluto
SUN: Venus stations direct 1:29am PDT

SOMETIMES we have to take a circuitous route to reach our destination; and sometimes, when we’re working with a Full Moon, we have to experience the polar extremes of the two signs involved before we find the balance and awareness we’ve been promised.

In the aftermath of yesterday’s winter-like storm here in the Pacific Northwest — with its high winds, falling branches, downed trees, traffic jams, and power outages — there was a sense of peace in the air this morning, as if that Pisces Moon was finally saying, “Here I am.” But yesterday was a bit of a frenzied mess as we tried, in Virgo fashion, to create order out of disorder and to avoid falling into the abyss of worry and lack of control. Eventually, there was a need to surrender to the reality and to find peace amid the chaos — which for me was cuddling with my dogs and listening to “Says You” on NPR on my wind-up radio, watching out my window as the tall firs that surround my home continued to sway in alarming fashion.

YESTERDAY’S Full Moon was the last lunation of the current eclipse cycle. In its role as clean-up crew, it had some work to do to help us prepare for the upcoming New Moon/Solar Eclipse that occurs on September 12 at 11:41pm PDT.

However our day unfolded — whether or not it was in dramatic fashion — we may want to consider how that Full Moon ultimately called for us to embrace the Piscean qualities of spiritual and emotional surrender. The word “surrender” has a negative connotation for many of us, since we equate it with giving away our power. But the Pisces form of surrender is not the same as capitulation.

BOTH WORDS mean to give up resistance — but with capitulation, we continue to see an outside entity as our opponent or enemy, and we hand over the reins unwillingly. When we surrender in Pisces fashion, we are joining forces with a higher aspect of our being that resides in realms of Trust, and releasing the resistance that comes from a fearful part of ourselves.

Perhaps yesterday’s Full Moon applied just the right amount of pressure for us to do some necessary release and realignment work — the kind of spiritual and emotional clearing that will allow us to take better advantage of the energies of the Solar Eclipse two weeks from now.

ON MONDAY, the last day of August, the Sun makes its annual opposition to ethereal Neptune. This aspect continues some of the themes that manifested with Saturday’s Full Moon. The clean-up operation in the physical world (ruled by Virgo) will necessarily continue in my local area, representing additional (although perhaps less obvious) cleansing occurring on those spiritual and emotional levels ruled by Pisces.

We also have completion of a different sort that comes into our awareness on Monday when Venus conjoins Mars. We usually think of a conjunction as a point of beginning, but it is also a time when we are wrapping up an old cycle. At this particular alignment, Venus is still retrograde but virtually at a standstill, since it goes direct on Saturday. As Venus and Mars join forces in Leo, we have a sense that we are saying good-bye to an element from our past — something that once was enlivening, that used to return as much energy to us as we invested in it, but that we now find drains our tank and doesn’t refill it.

WITH A DISRUPTIVE Jupiter-Uranus sesquisquadrate in effect this week, we will benefit from reminding ourselves to be patient, calm, and objective. (This aspect was included in yesterday’s Full Moon chart, in which Jupiter played a major role, being conjunct the Sun.) Situations may be outside of our control, or may fall apart at the last minute, causing confusion and overly dramatic reactions. The aspect is exact on Wednesday, but since it involves two slower-moving planets, we will feel its influence throughout the week.

On Thursday, a Mercury-Neptune quincunx calls us to adjust our thinking patterns so that we are not as easily thrown off balance when life changes unexpectedly. With Neptune in Pisces, this is another lesson of how to apply the concept of surrender in a positive way.

A SUN-PLUTO TRINE, exact Saturday afternoon, helps us feel more on task and more able to handle the realities of life in an empowered way. As these two planets work in harmony together, we can take advantage of Pluto in Capricorn’s drive to succeed and the Sun in Virgo’s attention to detail to make significant progress on a project.

Venus goes direct in the wee hours of the morning on Sunday (1:29am PDT). Based on what we have learned in the areas of relationship, finances, and personal values since the planet went retrograde on July 25, we can now move forward in these areas with a stronger knowing of what fulfills us and brings us true creative satisfaction.

Jesus Through John: A lesson newly learnt brings a sense of peace and contentment. by John Smallman

Jesus Audio Blog for Saturday August 29th

Hello, this is John with Jesus’ message for Saturday August 29th 2015. For a change I am including my whole channeling exchange with Jesus today (Friday August 28th) just so that you can see (or hear) how it happens. I do take breaks, as the energy gets quite intense at times, and then I return to my computer and we continue from where we broke off.

Jesus Blog # 263 for ​Saturday August 29th Channeled Friday August 28th 2015 10.50.

A lesson newly learnt brings a sense of peace and contentment.

Me:  Good morning Dear Jesus.  Thank you very much for your last message, it is nice to be communing with you once again after the long summer break that I took.  I seem to be more at peace, more content, more relaxed than I was earlier in the summer, so I hope I have released most of what was blocking our channel or leaving me unmotivated to be open to you or even positively not wanting to channel your loving and inspiring messages.  So, if you are available, can we please start a new one?

Jesus:   A very good morning to you, John.  Yes I am most definitely available to commune with you.  I am always available, so never hesitate to call on me as my task, my duty, my loving service is to be available to all who call on me.  Relax for just a moment, then we can start.

As I keep telling you, keep on hammering into you, all are One!  The state of separation from one another that appears to be the human condition is illusory, even though it seems so real to you all.  When God created You He gave You everything that He is – infinite unconditional Love and also therefore the absolute freedom, free will, that is one of its innumerable loving aspects – because Love just loves without conditions, eternally setting You free while at the same time maintaining You in a state of Oneness with Itself.

Within the illusion, as humans, that seems to be a very paradoxical and confusing idea because the illusion you constructed was intended to allow you to experience separation, and so the sense or state of Oneness had to be hidden, cloaked, or disguised.  In freedom you chose to establish an illusory state of limitation, of separation from God and therefore from Yourself!  Real separation is not possible because there is only One – God and You eternally engaged in an infinitely loving embrace that can never be broken.  It really is that simple.

All that you – humanity – have to do is open yourselves to your natural state, the state in which you were created and which you have never left, but which you have chosen to hide from yourselves under a cloak of darkness.  As an allegory you can think of the illusion as dark clouds that can obscure the sun.  But, the sun is always there, and although the clouds will dissipate, it seems that whether or not you can see the sun depends on fickle weather patterns flowing across the planet and over which you have no control.

However, the clouds hiding Reality from you are of your own making, and only you can dissolve them.  When you open to Love they dissolve.  Most of you have experienced moments of intense love when the radiance of the moment has shone briefly through the clouds of fear that mostly envelop you.  But you have considered those moments an aberration, a lucky meeting of minds or bodies when you inadvertently let your guard down and experienced a brief moment of ecstasy.  Often, before you have reset your guard, you have been hurt or betrayed by another proving to you that Love invariably leads to pain and suffering.  As you mature, or age, that safety barrier becomes ever more firmly established between you and the world outside to protect you from the inevitable attacks and betrayals that you know are just waiting to breach it.

And yet, you see others, maybe only a very few, who do not install those barriers to protect themselves from the dangers surrounding them.  They enjoy being vulnerable!  You dismiss their behavior as insane, especially if you see them apparently under attack or being betrayed.  But it still puzzles you because despite these attacks and betrayals they remain at peace.

Well the reason for that is that to be vulnerable makes you invulnerable!  To be offended is a choice you have to make.  Offensive behavior can only offend you if you choose to be offended.  And those loving souls who do not hide behind protective psychological barriers with their emotions safely locked away have not only realized this, but have also discovered that to be loving attracts others who are loving into their personal space, adding to their peace and contentment

To reiterate, from your perspective to be vulnerable appears to make it very likely that you will be taken advantage of and hurt, but in fact the opposite is the case.  Being vulnerable is being openly loving, being absolutely nonthreatening, and while it might appear that that is a very dangerous state to maintain, it in fact draws to you others who are willing and desirous of being loving.  To live in such a state dissolves fear and anxiety and allows you to behave in the most appropriate way in every moment because the Holy Spirit is guiding your every thought, word, and action.  It is a most relaxed and powerful way to go through life.  It will not obliterate pain and suffering but it will ensure that you are not overwhelmed when experiencing them.

Life in the illusion is painful, and suffering is unavoidable, but how you respond in each situation is a choice you are always free to make.  Often you react out of habit, instead of seeing each moment as independent of previous moments, and so you keep on repeating painful experiences, seeing them as imposed on you by a vicious world or a punishing god, and seeing yourselves as helpless victims in a very unsafe environment.

This is never the case.  Each one of you is following a life path that you planned prior to incarnating as a human with the loving guidance and assistance of your mentors in the spiritual realms – or, if you prefer, you may see it as guidance from God, the Holy Spirit, or the divine Mother.  The life path you are on is not random, everything that occurs during your life has a purpose, either for you directly, or for someone with whom you have a relationship – either long term or only momentary – nothing is accidental.

Your task on Earth is to learn each lesson that you placed upon your path as it arises.  If you do not, then it will arise again, possibly in a slightly different form, until eventually awareness dawns on you and you do learn it.  The lessons can be rather painful in order to catch your attention, but once learnt do not need repeating.  A lesson newly learnt brings a sense of peace and contentment, and leads to a greater willingness to accept life as it unfolds because you then realize that indeed everything does have a purpose which is far easier to see when you accept it instead of fighting against it.

In the spiritual realms you have guides and mentors watching over you constantly, ready and waiting for you to ask them for assistance which they will then most graciously and willingly provide, but only when you ask.  To assist before you asked would be an invasion of your personal energy field, an overriding of your free will, and none in the spiritual realms, not even God Himself, would do that.  But as soon as you ask we are there for you, because we love you and we do not want to see you suffering.

So, today’s message is basically a reiteration of the fact that there is only Love, all else is illusory, and that we in the spiritual realms are watching over you constantly and ready to assist you instantly when you call on us.  Therefore Please call on us for assistance with even the smallest or seemingly most insignificant of issues because it is our joy and our duty to serve you in any way that we can.

Your loving brother, Jesus.

Super Full Moon Tips -Bridging Worlds- by Selacia Sel​ | Earth’ Pivotal Years

Super Full Moon Tips-Bridging Worlds-
by Selacia Sel | Earth’ Pivotal Years

Heading into our first of three Super Full Moons on August 29, it’s helpful now to take stock of where things are in your life. Most likely our recent up-and-down energies have stimulated more than one relationship challenge and had you questioning your status quo. Perhaps you have initiated some bold new steps, too, taking advantage of positive potentials of this month’s energy cycle.

Sometimes you may wonder how you can bridge the spiritual and physical realities – they can seem so different and at odds. The wise part of you knows, however, that your spiritual and physical lives can and do complement one another. They really go together!

Bridging Worlds – Dimensions

As a divine changemaker, you understand that you are wired to bridge the spiritual and physical, bringing the spiritual element into everyday life. It’s part of your life anyway. What I’m talking about here is having it be a conscious and integrated aspect of how you live, how you think, and how you engage with the world.

It’s common to feel that you must be one way with certain people or in specific situations and another way when separate from them. This is a linear concept that ignores your quantum and multidimensional nature. It also ignores that same nature in the other people you meet.

It’s like saying to oneself, focused only on the body or physical outcomes: “I must make this happen or get this person to agree with me” – without factoring in the spiritual element that indeed is there. As a person is doing this, he or she may forget to tap inner wisdom or to envision involvement of another person’s higher self. Those elements are in the mix and available, even if overlooked.

Throughout time, countless spiritual traditions have referenced the interaction of these dimensional elements. In today’s society, there’s much more common understanding of these dynamics. Human conditioning over hundreds of years, however, accentuates separation and disconnection from one’s spiritual self.

Knowledge you have this spiritual self is one thing – living consciously as a multidimensional being is another. As part of your path now, you are waking up to what this means in practice. The idea is that you become an active participant of the bridging process, tangibly experiencing yourself in both realms. As you do so, you see yourself and other people in brand-new ways. You open your mind to possibilities not seen before! They were there, you simply didn’t notice them.

Relationships Front and Center

With relationship issues front and center in recent days, you may be questioning some decisions you made and some things that were said. If so, consider the more quantum elements involved. Each person you interact with has a past, present and future – just like you do. Those timelines and the content within experiences quite often can seem like a mystery because of tunnel vision discounting the whole picture. A bridging of realities is needed – with wider understanding of what’s really going on. What does this mean?

Understanding Bridging the Spiritual with Physical

First, it means a person involved in your inner circle or daily regimen may have past experiences that led to relationship dynamics unfolding now. The past and how this person responded to it will impact future outcomes – including what’s going on with you now.

The person you recently had a disagreement with could be playing out an unresolved past pattern. That pattern may not have anything to do with you personally. However, know that if it is showing up in your life vis-à-vis this other person, it’s no accident. It means that on some level your paths are crossing for you to see something, perhaps having nothing to do with this other person.

Higher selves of participants are involved with dynamics even if the people actively engaged are clueless of this other dimension. The more consciously aware you become of this multidimensional engagement and back story of things, the more adept you can be when relationships get rocky or simply do not make sense.

Second, it means your timeline and the other person’s timeline may only intersect for a short while. This is an important thing to keep in mind. Often when a relationship gets weird or simply out of sync, there’s a tendency to view the happenstance as a permanent fixture in your life. In these situations, you can become uncomfortable – not only with the change but about how you are to respond to the change.

Example: a person you have known for years may all of a sudden begin working at your place of employment. You may like it that they are there, ruminating about all kinds of potentials that may or may not be productive. You may dislike it, too, feeling uncomfortable about this person’s presence. Keep things in perspective.

The person showing up at your workplace is not a conspiracy or a definitive positive development you must act on. Don’t make this black and white. Don’t make it about you either. There are two people involved here.

This dynamic of the person you know in other environments showing up at work represents a new part of this person’s timeline intersecting with yours. Unless you factor spirit in the mix and the big quantum picture, this person being at your work place could unnecessarily distract you and get you off course. This is a block to your progress and can be an impediment to timelines of both people.

Example: a person unexpectedly intersecting with your timeline has their own path and higher purposes for being there. If you can recognize the connection as such and realize that there must be a reason you are engaged, you can connect with divine timing and orchestration. This helps you and it helps the other person.

Both of you, doing the dance together, grow in some way and then move into where you are to be headed next. Fighting the dance, resisting the connection, or pretending there is no overall purpose, is futile and an obstacle.

This dance is quite subtle, but it’s happening all the time! At this Super Full Moon weekend, invite an awareness of how this might apply in your own life. Ask to see the subtle workings of spirit in your physical reality. Ask to know how your timelines and happenstance miraculously intertwine with those of others. Ask for a growing appreciation of the mystical elements at play in your life.

Full Moon Report for 8/29/15 by Irma Kaye Sawyer

Full Moon Report for 8/29/15 by Irma Kaye Sawyer


Cosmic Weather – Full Moon in Pisces: Illumination, Transcendence and the Open Heart.

Hello friends. Well what a week it’s been. As of this writing (8/26) there have been over 62 solar flares in the past 5 days. We’re definitely in a vibrational upgrade period again, courtesy of the Universe. Today for me and so many others was quite an exercise in the pain of the world and disappointment, as another tragedy (in VA) is the last thing we expected on a day with a once-a-year Sun/Jupiter conjunction. Not exactly the “lucky” or “wish upon a star” vibe that we hoped for but it was a powerful teaching, especially on the road to one of the most transcendent Full Moons of the year. It was a reminder of the power of the outer world as an impetus for change, healing and a way to keep our tender hearts open, even if it’s uncomfortable.

You are the sky. Everything else is just the weather. – Pema Chodron

Also in appropriate timing, I recently watched the 2015 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction of the late, great Lou Reed. The induction itself read by his dear friend Patti Smith was beautiful and emotional as she stopped twice in the reading for tears. The speech given by his partner of 21 years Laurie Anderson is one of the most revelatory and profound that I have ever heard as she spoke about their enduring love, his ability to “take off his fame like a leather coat and put it back on when necessary,” his great body of work and his complexity as a man and artist. Lou Reed was not a typical Sun in Pisces person upon first glance, as he was very tough with plenty of New York attitude, but listening to his music and going below the surface the wisdom, compassion and transcendence was definitely there. His album “Magic and Loss” inspired by the untimely death of a friend, like much of his body of work is considered a classic. Lou felt the pain and the weight of the world and didn’t run from it. His musical stories about the harshness and complexities of life are what he was best known for as a songwriter.

Laurie Anderson shared that she and Lou came up with Three “Rules for Living” and they are:

1) Do not be afraid of anyone.
2) Have a very good BS detector.
3) Be very, very tender.

These are brilliant, aren’t they? They are also very Zen and Piscean in their way. If we can go through life with open hearts, awake and unafraid, we are definitely ahead of the game. That is the goal of all viable spiritual practice, to increase our presence and decrease our fears.

I can tell already that this Full Moon is going to be deep, REAL and more to the heart of matters than ever before. It’s the nature of the current energies and also the nature of this powerful year of manifestation and transformation. There’s going to be no hiding in this Moon as even in the hiding she will still see you, and maybe even get you to laugh along with her. If there ever was a time to get the “Cosmic Joke” it’s in a transcendent Pisces “Supermoon.” Also that being said, if there ever was a perfect time to radiate LOVE, COMPASSION and KINDNESS to all sentient beings, it would be the same.

This moon also has some significant things traveling with it worth mentioning; including an opposition to Jupiter, square to Saturn and conjunction to Neptune, the ruling planet of Pisces. This definitely backs up the all that I said here in the above paragraph with an extra dose of Neptunian mysticism for good measure.


As with all Full Moons there is an interesting juxtaposition to the Sun, its opposite sign. There are more alike things about Virgo and Pisces than many other astrological pairings, mostly being the predominant themes of service and compassion for others. They both have a shadow of martyrdom; Pisces is more prone to escape in drugs or drink, Virgo in workaholism or excessive “fixing” and “saving” behaviors. They are both deeply sensitive, but in different ways. The Mercurial and highly mental side of Virgo when out of balance can be phobic, critical and hyper-vigilant.

The transcendent side of Pisces when out of bounds can be flighty, irresponsible, overly detached and self-absorbed in its own fantasies. There is a beautiful middle road between these two sign energies that is the best of their respective worlds: caring and compassionate but not co-dependent, spiritual but grounded on Earth, open-hearted yet still self-contained. There may be a tendency to flip into the extremes as this moon carries a lot of power, but it’s a good reminder we can always breathe, refocus and come back home to the Self at any time.

Recommended activities: Meditation, Journaling, Music, Daydreaming, Ritual, Service.

Sail me on a silver sun, where I know that I’m free. Show me that I’m everywhere, and get me home for tea. When I look into your eyes, your love is there for me. And the more I go inside, the more there is to see.
– George Harrison

The Cosmic Full Moon Tune “It’s all too much,” was written by another talented Pisces who’s spirituality manifested quite differently but no less poignantly, George Harrison.

Happy Full Moon friends and remember to keep it Cosmic!

NOTE: The Full Moon in Pisces is 8/29/15 at 11:35 am PDT/2:35 pm EDT.
