Highlighted Aspects this Week
MON: Mercury enters Aries
TUE: Venus enters Aries
WED: Pluto semisquare Juno
THU: Jupiter stations retrograde
FRI: Last Quarter Moon 3:19am PST (11:19am GMT), Mercury trine Ceres
SAT: Venus trine Ceres, Mercury square Saturn
SUN: Mars trine Uranus, Sun sextile Pluto


HAVING COMPLETED their journey through the heart-opening realms of other-worldly Pisces, both Mercury and Venus enter the vivid landscape of forthright Aries early this week. This move from the twelfth sign to the first may be the most abrupt of all sign changes, taking us from water to fire, from lessons of compassion and completion into learning about courage and initiative.

As Mercury makes this shift on Monday, it will inspire many to take action on their words. The upcoming “March for Our Lives” set for March 24 in Washington, DC, is a prime example of the type of activity supported by Mercury in Aries. In general, communications are more direct and less conciliatory under this influence; words can fly from our lips before we realize what we’re saying.

Although it may be hard to do so in the middle of a proclamation or a diatribe, we are advised to remember that Mercury will be going retrograde on March 22. Anything we say off hand in the next few weeks will quickly come back to haunt us. Boomerang karma, anyone?

WITH VENUS entering Aries on Tuesday, our values and priorities also go through an adjustment. Instead of letting Piscean sensitivity and understanding motivate our interactions, we are driven by the Arien desire for excitement and immediate gratification.

This shift will affect all areas that are ruled by Venus — love relationships, what we do for pleasure, our aesthetics, financial dealings, partnerships, and alliances. In other words, over the next three weeks while Venus journeys through Aries, we are more inclined to spend money spontaneously, and to fall in love just as quickly.

JUPITER stations retrograde on Thursday, which means the planet is basically at a standstill throughout the coming week. Whenever a planet pauses in preparation for changing direction, its influence is heightened, so it will be interesting to watch what unfolds.

We’ve already seen some striking examples of the effects of Jupiter’s journey through secretive Scorpio, as the planet holds its magnifying glass on all that has been hiding in the shadows. Since Jupiter entered Scorpio last October, the deluge of revelations has been stunning, giving birth to the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements. In other arenas, investigations into the misuse of power and influence continue, with new truths being revealed on an almost daily basis.

ON A PERSONAL LEVEL, Jupiter’s retrograde phase, which will last from March 8 to July 10, calls us to enter a time of reflection on what we believe in and what motivates us.

In his book Dynamics of Aspect Analysis, Bil Tierney writes that when Jupiter is moving backward, it is “a marvelous time for gaining deeper insights into spiritual or philosophical matters, as wisdom can flow easier from the superconscious and make contact with the conscious self.”

Jupiter’s four-month retrograde phase may have consequences on a broader social level, too, as Tierney goes on to describe:

“By turning within for greater understanding, we may now gain a greater perspective concerning social values. We may feel detached from what is socially expected of us during this period and may reject such pressures in favor of listening to our own inner calling. By examining our social affairs more carefully and deeply, we may judge and evaluate the rightness of such activities according to our own personal, unique guidelines for living. Hopefully, when Jupiter finally turns direct again, we will adopt fresh, new attitudes concerning how we can enrich and elevate our associations with others in our community. Our participation can become more purposeful and fulfilling.”

A SERIOUS NOTE is struck next Saturday, when the Moon aligns with Saturn in Capricorn and both square Mercury in Aries. This may be a time of reckoning for some, coming to terms with the reality of a situation. It is not a good day for negotiations, as communications will feel stilted and unproductive, and there is a tendency to negative thinking.

The atmosphere shifts considerably on Sunday, however, when Mars trines Uranus and the Sun sextiles Pluto. These are very liberating, energizing, and empowering aspects, inspiring us to take risks that may very well transform the course of our lives.

IF YOUR BIRTHDAY IS THIS WEEK: Your inner vision is your guide and greatest ally this coming year. To take advantage of the wisdom that is available to you, first connect with physical reality in some way — through working in the garden, playing music, creating art, or doing another activity that engages your physical senses and enables you to lose track of time for a while. As you emerge refreshed from these experiences, your thinking will be clearer and you will more easily be able to assess the situation from a practical viewpoint, while also accessing your higher knowing of best action.

In light,

Kelly M. Beard: Weekly Forecast: Feb 25 – March 3, 2018

Weekly Forecast: Feb 25 – March 3, 2018

2/25 ~ Venus (values & priorities) ~square~ Mars (desire & passion):

This is our Inner Feminine & Masculine pushing out of comfort zone and into new territory. It’s time to recalibrate how you give & receive, as well as how you BE versus DO. It helps to know the Signs + Elements to consciously choose how to work with it. In this case, Venus is in Pisces and Mars is in Sag, so we are all growing & going to experience completely new levels of healing & truth within relationships. This energy supports getting it together within ourselves and our relationships. Anytime Venus & Mars interact, the energy has to do with your relationships, both personal & professional, private & public. Squares create the necessary tension to catalyze action. As an individual, it is time to grow, change and integrate your own Venus (values & priorities) with your own Mars (desires & passion), however, on another level it activates sexual energy as that too is the energy of creation. Pisces & Sag is Water & Fire and again, we have the forces of creation, and all around our faith & imagination. What can you create with your own Imagination & Faith? How are you currently pregnant with possibilities?

2/25 ~ Mercury (communication/expression) ~conjunct~ Neptune (imagination/ spirituality):

This is a mixed blessing, but definitely an initiation either way. It can be miraculous for creativity, art or exploration. I like this one for a personal ‘conversation with God’, your Higher Self, your SoulSelf. As with any initiation, a completion must come first, and in this case with Mercury, it’s time to expand your thinking in some way – go deeper. Invite your Ancestors, Angels & Animal Guides to answer your questions and guide you at this time. Communing with them is much more supported than communing with the humans around you. So if you need to think about the mundane or confront someone about something which requires complete honesty from both parties, things could get a little hazy & confused thanks to Neptune here. There is always a veil to contend with when dealing with Neptune, but you have to know which side of it you are on so you are in alignment with the Nature around you (3D vs 5D). This energy tends to color reality, misleading you to think you are being perfectly clear in your communication or what you’re trying to express, while others are completely lost. It’s better to say nothing, rather than be completely misunderstood.

2/25 ~ Sun (source & essential Self) ~sextile~ Saturn (organization & structure):

This energy is good for getting serious and organized because the Sun also brings some much-needed clarity. With Saturn involved, practical actions based on responsible assessments will be rewarded, whereas, blowing things off or leaving loose ends will cost you (usually fairly immediately, the instant karma way). Even if this should happen to you, it is not personal, but Saturn’s way of showing you (immediately) where your current limitations are. That’s good info to have when making choices & decisions. This activation gives you access to self-discipline and the ability to consider all your options before deciding on anything. This is a good time to focus on your professional goals if possible, and start making a solid, feasible plan for the future. If you need to, seek the advice of a trusted wise elder (anyone with more knowledge/experience than you ; -)) And if you can’t actually DO something in the direction of your goals today, take the time to meditate and connect to your plan mentally.

2/27 ~ Venus (relationships) ~sextile~ Pluto (transformation):

This energy deepens all emotions and strengthens bonds & attachments. Friendships & love relationships become much deeper and, sometimes more intense, not to mention any physical (sexual) experience. Being fake or superficial is never possible when Pluto is involved, and because Venus is involved, we’re talking relationships or how you relate in general, so if you are needing to dig a little deeper with someone, you are supported. This energy can facilitate positive transformation in your relationships, partnerships or collaborations. It will give you added power to help you change what needs changing or at least get it on the table for deeper discussion or a clearing conversation. Your emotional intensity may be at an unusually high level, so be sure to surround yourself with people who love you unconditionally or try to be alone and just reflect on what you’re feeling.

2/28 ~ Mercury (ideas, thoughts & concepts) ~square~ Mars (desire & actions):

This activation can be a tough one for some. If your beliefs are out of alignment with your actions, if you are not self-aware or act-out unconsciously, being selfish or childish, then watch out, because squares test you to grow and change in some way. Often, this also means that you are suppressing your nature in some way, which is never really a good idea. When you suppress your Soul, it can make your human more sensitive or defensive, taking things personally as a threat or challenge. If you catch your Self feeling irritable for no apparent reason, try to step back and gain some perspective before responding to your own thoughts or another’s words. Mercury & Mars getting together, in this challenging way, can provoke debates and, in some people, actual fights, so be careful. The deeper aspect of this activation is that some part of you wants to express, perhaps in a new way, and your monkey-mind has got you all off track. Mars demands that you know who you are and what you want, and is the Divine Masculine part of you, which is supposed to hold good boundaries, protect you and negotiate on your behalf in the world. If you know something that you are not acting on, this can be frustrating. If you are acting in ways that are not allowing you to think things through, this too can cause accidents, problems and delays. It is best to pull in until you are clear. And also keep in mind, you may not be out of alignment in the above ways, but those around you may be and will likely have no context for what they are feeling and therefore, become indiscriminate with their choices & actions.

2/28 ~ Mercury (communication) ~sextile~ Pluto (transformation): 

This energy provokes the need to delve deeper into the ideas or information being presented at this time, whether personal or professional. You will want to dig deeper, ask the hard questions and gather insights that are deeper and more profound than usual. In your professional/public life, you may find yourself doing better due-diligence and in your personal/private life, you may find yourself digging a little deeper into your own mental patterns & personal history (that has led to ‘now’). As you make these connections and begin to grasp these new insights, they will gain traction and you will become more grounded in your own Truth. We all get excited about those kind of ah-ha moments, and you may find yourself wanting to share them with others who may or may not be ready to hear such deep Truths or have the conscious awareness to even process them, so use some discernment around who and when you share these new-found insights.

3/1 ~ Venus (socialize) ~trine~ Jupiter (optimism & travel): 

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

3/2 ~ Mercury (learning & mind) ~trine~ Jupiter (education & consciousness):

This energy is great for expanding your mind, learning something new or taking a class. It’s time to plan for the future and start getting organized. However, you may feel less disciplined and more creative, which is fine in the beginning, but eventually focus & discipline will have to be engaged to ground your new ideas, thoughts or concepts. You have to ask your Self, ‘How bad do you want it?’ If you are self-aware, awake & alert, you will be able to see (and seize) the opportunities as they present themselves. It may ‘appear’ to be luck, but it’s really more that you were in alignment with the Cosmos, present & positive, and ultimately, able to trust & follow your instincts. Practice, there is no perfection. Being optimistic & looking for opportunity in every experience will magnetize the positive and naturally repel the negative, leading right where you want to be! Take advantage of this good energy to connect to whatever it is you are trying to create in your life at this time.


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.

*NOTEThere 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.

Your guide to planetary energies for
February 26 to March 4, 2018
By Pam Younghans


Highlighted Aspects this Week
TUE: Venus sextile Pluto
WED: Mercury square Vesta, Mercury square Mars, Mercury sextile Pluto 
THU: Venus trine Jupiter, Sun semisquare Uranus, Full Moon 4:51pm PST (12:51am GMT on Friday)
FRI: Mercury trine Jupiter
SUN: Sun conjunct Neptune, Mercury conjunct Venus, Mercury conjunct Chiron, Venus conjunct Chiron


MERCURY, the Messenger Planet and ruler of all things related to mental activity — communication, networking, facts, truth, news, logic, thinking, and ideas — is very active this week. We’re bound to see a significant amount of both information and misinformation coming forward, which means we’ll need to be wearing our own personal Sorting Hat when it comes to knowing what to believe and what to discard as false.
This is true not only of external communications, but also our own perceptions and what we think we “know.” Mercury is in Pisces right now, which increases intuition but also can create brain fog, leaving us somewhat adrift from reality and potentially gullible.

WE ARE TESTED in this regard on Wednesday, when Mercury squares both Mars and the asteroid Vesta, which are aligned in Sagittarius and fully dedicated to defending their cause. Externally, the war of words can cause significant distraction; internally, we may wage battle with our own need to be right, which can interfere with our ability to hear inner guidance.

Any square involving Mars, the god of war, is likely to create at least some fireworks. But in the midst of the barrage of words, we have the opportunity to discern the truth of the matter, thanks to the depth-perception provided by a Mercury-Pluto sextile, also on Wednesday.

FOLLOWING Mercury’s trail, we’ll jump over Thursday’s very-important Full Moon for now, and land on Friday, when a Mercury-Jupiter trine increases the flow of communication. The good news is that with Jupiter in truth-seeking Scorpio, we are less likely to be derailed or deceived by mere words; metaphorically, we will find it easier to tune our ear to hear the core melody and be less distracted by the vocal flourishes.

Our experience on Sunday is also strongly influenced by Mercury, as the planet conjoins both Venus and Chiron in Pisces. If we are looking for healing — especially of relationships — this is an excellent time to access forgiveness and to open to new levels of trust with loved ones. Once we acknowledge the wounds of the past, our heartfelt, kind words can go a long way in healing any scars that remain.

The Pisces Sun also conjoins Neptune on Sunday, making it a powerful day of compassion and understanding. This influence also supports dream work and spiritual practices, as well as mindfulness meditation and creative/artistic activities.

NOW, back to the highlight of the week — the Virgo Full Moon that occurs at 4:51 p.m. PST on Thursday (12:51 a.m. GMT on Friday). While not an eclipse, this lunation is of greater significance than most, since it is high point of the lunar cycle that began with the Solar Eclipse on February 15.

A Full Moon is a time of bringing light to current issues. It marks a culmination and a crisis point based on themes that have been building over the past two weeks. With this Full Moon in practical and discerning Virgo, it strengthens our ability to see truth and to know what we must do to facilitate improvement and healing.

THE SABIAN SYMBOL for the degree of the Full Moon (11°23′ Virgo) reinforces the theme of dispelling illusion and seeing reality:

“After the wedding, the groom snatches the veil away from his bride: The penetrating and unveiling power of the trained mind.”

In his interpretation of this symbol, astrologer Dane Rudhyar writes, “There can be an unveiling of mysteries, long protected by secrecy.”

Much is coming forward now that has been held hostage by our desire not to face reality. The revelation of truth may not be comfortable, but it is the first step toward finding solutions to our problems. What will we see when the veil is snatched away, and how will it affect our journey from here?

IF YOUR BIRTHDAY IS THIS WEEK: In the year ahead, you will have many opportunities to find new stability and clarity in your life. In the past year or two, you have been releasing old patterns of behavior that have kept you feeling powerless and inhibited your ability to set boundaries. As you have surrendered to these personality changes, your self-concept has changed. This internal shift is what now allows you to open your life to new potentials in the coming year.

Tania Garielle: Astrological Insights



The Moon grabs our attention twice a month during the New and Full Moons…

But there are some days when the Moon forms brief and exquisite connections to other planets – that last about a day.

This Saturday and Monday, we have two such magnificent moon moments occurring just two days apart, creating an extra fortunate energy:

  • A stunning “Finger of God” is formed Jupiter and Pluto pointing to the Moon on Saturday.
  • A magnificent Grand Trine gets activated by Venus, Jupiter and the Moon on Monday.

You truly can benefit from both!

The Finger of God is a rare event that creates a potent, fiercely focused energy.

It happens on February 24/6 setting off a strong abundance code.

In this instance, the base of the Finger of God is created by Pluto sextile Jupiter – the defining astrology transit of 2018 – signifying financial abundance, expanded leadership and fortunate opportunities.

Pointing to the Moon is an invitation for you to engage with prosperity from the HEART.

This is about bringing passion and a strong sense of purpose into the abundance creation conversation.


What does your inner conversation about abundance sound like?

To connect to the part of you that is inspired to create magnificent results, listen closely today, and ACT on what you realize.

By Monday you may have found that “hook” – something that feels just right, that you must explore!

Monday is the day you EXPAND your discovery with great passion as a Grand Trine of the Moon to Venus and Jupiter completes this wonderful exploration into abundance.

This is the day that the number 26/8 stimulates the courage to step into your power.

Venus trine Jupiter is already the most positive relationship between two planets that we can experience… Add a Grand Trine with the Moon and you have a recipe of good fortune!

And with ALL planets still in DIRECT motion (all moving forward) you are positively directly to go for it!


This passionate forward momentum and joy are a magnet for attracting lucky breaks – as long as you trust that the universe is prepared to deliver what you yourself expect to happen.


You may have noticed that Jupiter is involved with both of these wonderful moments.

Jupiter is the planet of plenty.

Jupiter symbolizes fortune and opportunities.

For you personally, Jupiter describes the unique you align to prosperity and fulfillment.

So take this opportunity, as Jupiter creates the Finger of God and Grand Trine, to discover how your OWN natal Jupiter placement blesses YOU (and reveals how to best manifest financial flow).

Love and Blessings,

NorthPoint Journal:  Your guide to planetary energies for ​February 19 to 25, 2018 By Pam Younghans

Highlighted Aspects this Week
MON: Venus semisquare Uranus
TUE: Mercury semisquare Pluto
WED: Venus conjunct Neptune, Mercury sextile Saturn 
THU: Saturn quincunx Ceres
FRI: First Quarter Moon 12:09am PST (8:09am GMT), Mercury semisquare Uranus, Sun semisquare Pluto
SUN: Venus square Mars, Mercury sextile Pallas Athene, Mercury conjunct Neptune, Neptune sextile Pallas Athene, Venus square Vesta, Mars conjunct Vesta, Sun sextile Saturn


LOOKING OUT MY WINDOW as I write the Journal this morning, I see hail pellets falling from what appears to be blue sky. As the ground quickly becomes littered with the cold white confetti while sunlight still dances in the trees, it feels symbolic of the paradoxical and often perplexing times we are moving through. 

Our inner and outer weather continue to be variable in the aftermath of the storm that came in with last Thursday’s Solar Eclipse. Planetary aspects for the coming week reflect times of conflict and uncertainty, but also opportunities for us to make progress in how we choose to deal with those fluctuating conditions — specifically through opening our hearts and expanding our ability to trust when outcomes are unknown. 

WE BEGIN the week feeling at least somewhat out of sorts, thanks to semisquare aspects on Monday and Tuesday. These are known as “nuisance” aspects, when we become aware of areas in which we overreact to minor irritations and unexpected detours.

Astrologer Bil Tierney writes that the semisquare aspect “may reveal willful attitudes that tend to keep us rut-bound, unadaptable, and uncompromisingly resistant to needed changes.” This aspect “serves as a psychological warning flag, indicating where we are becoming congested in our attitudes and unwisely stubborn concerning the need for personal change.”

In other words, we can benefit from taking a step back from our mental or emotional responses early in the week, to observe ourselves and the issues that have triggered the frustration. As we do this, while also breathing deeply into our bodies, we access the ability to release and forgive, freeing us to move on without carrying the energy of frustration into the rest of the day.

WEDNESDAY provides good support on both spiritual/creative and mental/physical levels. The two planets associated with love — both human and divine — unite in Pisces to open our hearts in compassion and understanding. This Venus-Neptune alignment is especially needed now, when it’s easy to judge and condemn those who are clearly “wrong.”

At the same time, Mercury and Saturn are in harmonious sextile aspect, which means our heart-centered intentions do not need to stay unmanifest, but can take form on the physical plane. This aspect enables our minds to conceptualize and implement new plans — but since Mercury is in Pisces, those plans are inspired and supported by loftier ideals.

THE SATURN-CERES ASPECT on Thursday is another crunch time, when we’re very aware of time limitations. Commitments and obligations get in the way of our equally-important task of creative self-nurturing, and vice versa.

With this aspect, we must find a way to be both mother (Ceres) and father (Saturn) to ourselves. These two inner voices can seem to be at odds, one reminding us of our duties and the other telling us it’s OK to play. The challenge is to know which voice to heed and when, and to be aware of when we’ve ignored one of the voices too long. The long-term effect of closing our ears to either voice is that it interferes with both our productivity and our fulfillment.  

SEMISQUARE ASPECTS again dominate on Friday, so we’ll want to remember to once again use the mindfulness methods we practiced early in the week. This is also the day of the First Quarter Moon, when we come face-to-face with issues that were unleashed at the time of the New Moon/Solar Eclipse.

The Moon is in early Gemini (at 4°39′) at the time of the First Quarter, indicating that communication and information play important roles in moving us forward. With Mercury, planetary ruler of Gemini, in tender-hearted Pisces, our challenge may be to know how be compassionate and understanding without falling into rescuer, martyr, or victim roles.

THE PLANETS are very active on Sunday morning — all seven aspects listed on the highlights list occur before 10 a.m. PST (4 p.m. GMT)! Two of the aspects are alignments, marking this day as a time to release the past and initiate something new.

The Mercury-Neptune alignment in Pisces asks us to let go of old self-defeating attitudes and disillusionment that are interfering with our ability to clearly access intuitive knowing. With both planets sextile the asteroid Pallas Athene in Taurus, those intuitive insights can be applied to practical problems to improve our lives in concrete ways.

At the same time, the Mars-Vesta alignment in Sagittarius compels us to take a leap of faith based on our highest ideals — but first, we must leave behind self-righteousness and other ego-based anger. Both Mars and Vesta are in square aspect to Venus, so we will also face the challenge of our need to please and appease others. Can we stay true to our beliefs, even if others are not on board the same train? And how do we stay openhearted when others express opinions that conflict with ours?

The Sun-Saturn sextile on Sunday is our grounding pole for the day and perhaps for the week. This aspect helps us find ways to satisfy both our spiritual/creative needs and the requirements of our worldly aspirations.

IF YOUR BIRTHDAY IS THIS WEEK: Life moves quickly this year, as you feel inspired to dedicate your energies to a higher cause. You have access to heightened intuition and the ability to create new heart connections as you discover how and where you want to dedicate your effort and resources. Your capacity for practical reasoning may not be strong, however, so find a trusted friend to provide an objective view of your choices. Maintaining an awareness of this-world concerns and applying discernment will save you from situations that might result in self-sacrifice and disillusionment.
