9/26 ~ Mercury Retrograde in LIBRA (Until Oct 18th):

This year is special because Mercury has retrograded in ALL Air Signs: Aquarius, Gemini and now Libra. The last time it did this was 2015 and before that 2008 and before that was 2001-02. Can you find any common threads between those years that point to you having a complete re-set in your Mental Body? Those years do coincide with a LOT of movement, changes, ideas, learning, teaching and birthing new ways of expressing ourselves as individuals within the context of our relationships. Isn’t it interesting that it happened right after 9/11 and now right after 2020/covid??

It’s almost like we need these extreme events to shake our consciousness loose from the old thinking, which is ultimately Mercury’s job when it goes Retrograde. It gives us 3-4 opportunities per year to tend to our own individual Mental Body, which often means PAUSING the Input and processing what you already have going on in your mind, your consciousness, your life and in Libra’s case, your relationships, partnerships & collaborations. It is time to re-dream our roles & responsibilities within realms of other people. We have spent the last 1-2 years releasing an obsolete narrative that no longer applies. We are now at the Sweet Spot/In-Between Seed & New Life, in that, we are done with the old ways of communicating, expressing, exchanging energy or relating with others but we are still imagining, dreaming, visioning what the new ways might look like. So use the next 3-9 weeks to review how your own Identity & Purpose has evolved, so your relationships, partnerships & collaborations automatically shift accordingly.

Also, I’d like to mention here that Mercury comes out of Shadow on Nov 5th and on the exact same day, Venus enters Capricorn where she will retrograde and remain until March 6th. My feeling is that we are going to go through this mental process of recalibrating how we think & express within partnerships of all kinds, as well as what creative ideas we might invest in further (or not). Then we are going to go into Venus’ realm and be pushed to reexamine our own values & priorities in relationships, it will push us to renegotiate roles & responsibilities with those closest and ask that we begin to commit to certain ideas by creating containers for them. So one process leads to another process – both of which are re-shaping YOU so that by Spring Equinox 2022 you can birth a completely New Story that is based on your true purpose and expresses your true values going forward. HERE is a Bonus Mercury Retro Podcast (37-min)

9/29 ~ Venus (values & priorities) ~trine~ Neptune (faith & spirituality):

This is a very supportive energy for dreaming your world into being! Allow your imagination some latitude to wander and see where it leads. Play with “what if” scenarios. For example, “what if” all your material needs & desires were taken care of, what would you dedicate your time, energy & resources to? You may be very empathic and connected to others and what they are going through at this time, so maintain adequate boundaries. Neptune can activate a very spiritual encounter with another human being (friend, family or lover) but only time will tell if it is Neptune playing tricks on you or if it is truly a spiritual connection.

9/29 ~ Sun (your core drives) ~trine~ Saturn (discipline & order):

This energy gives you the direction & discipline at the same time. Use it consciously to fuel your goals and pay attention for any blessings manifesting from your past efforts. You are completely supported to structure your life in a whole new way. It’s time to take a personal inventory, organize your life, especially your home, office or immediate environment. Naturally, this kind of shift will also affect those you relate with in these close environments, so be mindful of others who are not necessarily as *clear* as you may be at this time. A new order is trying to take root, which scares some and excites others, and this activation supports you and your personal definition of stability & good boundaries. You have access to focus & dedication that can set the tone for the whole next season, as you clarify the connection between who you are and what you are truly responsible for in this life. Evaluate your daily routine and see what’s working and what’s not and move forward with some new choices.

9/30 ~ Venus (love, finances & relationships) ~square~ Jupiter (expansion & consciousness): 

This energy is a happy-go-lucky kind of energy that doesn’t really want to be bothered with the mundane, however, you must not allow that passing energy to get you so off track that it costs you more than it is worth. If you don’t have any pressing obligations, then this will be a fun, relaxing time, possibly with friends doing something sociable. However, if you have work to do, make sure it gets done first so that you can truly enjoy yourself without the worry of the pile being bigger when you return. Watch the excesses as well, food, drink and/or spending. On a deeper level, you may have to make some adjustments in your relationships or finances. Jupiter always reveals how we make things bigger’ (consciously or not) and this activation usually helps us be more realistic, so that we can align our true priorities with our grand vision of the future.

10/1 ~ Mercury (ideas, thoughts & concepts) ~square~ Pluto (rebirth & transformation):
(2 of 3: 9/22 ~ 10/1 ~ 11/2) 

This energy is a tough, yet powerful one. Its Highest expression would be to focus on your inner deep-dig, discovery & development. It enables you to look beneath the surface to some core drives and gain some valuable insights and thus, choose a plan of action based on your findings. You will want to know all the hidden meanings behind decisions you’ve made or want to make soon. Dig – you may find more than you think you’re ready for, but apparently the Universe thinks differently! Pay attention and try not to worry about what anyone else thinks or believes. This energy’s flip-side is to make you obsess over one particular idea and try to force others to your way of thinking. That is a bottomless pit – you cannot truly change the way other people think – you can only change the way you think and hope it enlightens others along the way … and it will, for those who are tuned into your frequency or level of consciousness. Try to only focus on you and your direction at this time.

10/2 ~ 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 experiences. 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 a 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.

Karmic Tools: Weekly Forecast: March 14 – 20, 2021

by Kelly M. Beard

3/15 ~ Mercury Enters PISCES (until April 3rd):
This is the *Sacred Pause* before you decide or choose something really important this Spring. Take advantage of this time to clarify where you are and where you are heading and keep in mind the power of the Imagination & Spirit (Pisces). If you imagine doom & gloom, it is more likely to manifest. If you imagine breakthroughs with relationships & resources then you will create more of that. This time in Pisces is going to have its own additional caveats. Your intuition & imagination will be involved, for better or worse, so try to connect fluid language with vivid imagery – the Pisces-way. Keep in mind nothing is linear or logical about Mercury in Pisces, this is All-Spirit or Other-Worldly. So any spiritual healing work is tremendously supported over this couple of weeks. It is time to fortify your intuition. Remember that you have to work your intuition like a muscle so that you can learn to rely on it. Check in with your own beliefs, dreams & fears. And make time to be in Nature, under the Sky, that always gives the Monkey Mind a break, but especially during Pisces time, each year, we are supposed to be dreaming up the action plan that we will execute throughout Aries/Taurus time. And don’t forget the best thing about it is that it is totally easier to commune with your Angels, Ancestors & Animal Spirit Guides and they are even more available when in PISCES, like now. It’s another good time for Divinations and consulting with your personal Council to find out what will be supported throughout this new year (2021).

3/16 ~ Sun (core identity) ~sextile~ Pluto (transformation):
This is a healthy, positive, transformative energy. You will have access to energy that will help you change your current circumstance for the better and/or clear up an issue that has been challenging you for a while now. It’s great for purifying, cleaning & clearing your personal space, as well as organizing your life in general. You may have to examine the “big picture” to see where an adjustment, for the good of all involved, may be necessary. If you’re not feeling up to working on outer issues, this also gives you the opportunity to do some introspective thinking and deep self-reflection. Superficial once-overs will not do, you must address the root cause for where you find yourSelf at this time and decide if it is working for you or against you.

3/18 ~ 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 experiences. 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 a 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.

a message from Kelly M. Beard Monday, 7 December, 2020 

The video version of this forecast, as read by Kelly, is available here.

12/9 ~ Sun (core essential Self) ~square~ Neptune (illusions & delusions):

This activation can cause self-doubt, self-delusion and an overall confusion that seems to be sourced within or self-directed. It’s only temporary, this is just the Universe’s way of slowing you down so you can see where your goals may have been unrealistic or based on flights of fancy. If your energy is low and you’re feeling challenged to see the bright side of things, it is better to just time-out, rest & replenish (if possible) and most of all, do not initiate any grand plans as you are not really seeing things as they truly are at this time. Luckily, this is a pretty short-lived activation.

12/10 ~ 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 experiences. 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 a 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.

12/11 ~ Sun (core identity) ~trine~ Mars (desire):

This is a powerful energy for solidifying who you are, what you want and what you are capable of. It brings out your desire to be truly self-sustained & independent, and with the good angle between Sun & Mars, you are deeply supported for forward movement that feels almost effortless when you are grounded and aligned with your own Truth & Purpose. If you are not clear about who you are or what your purpose is, this energy will inspire you to find out. If you are already on track and crystal clear, then this energy strongly supports progress & evolution to the next level in obvious ways. It is a great time for physical activities that bring you joy and get your juices flowing. You should review, with gratitude, all the goals you’ve accomplished thus far and begin deciding what you can finish up in preparation for what’s coming. You are truly being prepared for your future, use this great energy to ground that intent consciously and with a vote from your Heart & Soul.

*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.

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.

11/23 ~ Mercury (ideas) ~trine~ Neptune (dreams):

This energy activates your creative process & intuition. You may catch yourSelf unconsciously drifting aimlessly but a better use of this combination is to open to the other realms for ideas & information and play with it, free flow, see where it leads. It is not the time for pragmatic analysis, but more a time to explore the infinite possibilities available to you, as well as what’s going on in your own consciousness. You may be more sensitive than usual, opening yourself to information or awareness that isn’t always that readily available. Remember, to keep good boundaries when *opening* like this and if you have to be around people, try to maintain the mystical, creative vibe this energy is best for.

11/27 ~ 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 Authentic 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.



11/27 ~ Venus (values) ~oppose~ Uranus (freedom):

Any time Uranus is involved, it becomes the “wild card” and hard to predict how things will unfold, but right now there is a push-pull between your apparent values and your unique individual self. Venus also represents relationships, so you may begin an unusual relationship or you may have something unusual happen in an established relationship. It is not necessarily a “good/bad” thing, as much as an unpredictable shift or sudden awareness, which requires some compromise & integration. This energy works beautifully if your personal Truth and values are in alignment. It will be very disruptive if they are not. Be open and flexible, while looking for the win/win situation for all involved.



11/28 ~ Mercury (your voice) ~sextile~ Jupiter (expansion):

Where Sun sextile Jupiter is more about YOU, this activation is more about your consciousness, ideas, thoughts & concepts (Mercury), which Jupiter expands in some way, helping you to ‘think bigger’, edit your personal Story and step up your game in some kind of way. This is also a great energy to work with if you are in school, learning something new, expanding your knowledge base or gathering new tools & information to support your goals. Your dreams are tapping you on the shoulder right now, demanding some attention. Mundane issues are not your concern with this energy, you want to figure out how to create the life you’ve been imagining. This energy also provokes within you the awareness & understanding that being generous naturally attracts generosity to you. The big picture and overall patterns which have led you to this point are being brought into the light. Feeling clear, sharp, alert and optimistic, you begin to realize that anything you can imagine (or remember), you can achieve.



11/28 ~ Neptune Direct in Pisces:

If the Moon represents the individual womb, then Neptune is the collective womb. When it retrogrades annually, we are given an opportunity to consciously develop something, usually related to healing & wholeness. The retrogrades always encourage us to go within and heal, make-whole or integrate something critical to our well-being. What healing have you been working on personally, since June 2020? Neptune is most commonly known as the planet of dreams and visions. So on a normal day, Neptune creates the desire to daydream, create, visualize the ideal outcome (to life, relationship, project, etc.), it tends to see everything through rose colored glasses, putting its hopeful spin on it all. When Neptune Retrogrades, it may be less shocking than Uranus or Pluto, but no less effective. It’s primary goal during a Retrograde is to gently dissolve personal boundaries. You start to realize your connection to the whole. Not a bad idea, but to some, it can be unsettling if they are rigidly holding onto boundaries for a false sense of security. Hopefully, you’ve been able to reconnect to your Spirit in a way that helps you navigate the world better going forward, now that it is Direct.

Weekly Forecast: November 15 – 21, 2020

Kelly M. Beard

a message from Kelly M. Beard Sunday, 15 November, 2020 
(posted 16 November, 2020)

The video version of this forecast, as read by Kelly, is available here.

11/15 ~ Super/New Moon in SCORPIO:

This Scorpio New Moon is really powerful for *seeding* your deepest, soul-level desires. This is an annual opportunity to return to the Infinite Void (conception point) and set some completely new intentions. There is also additional energy available at this time from your Invisible Team of Support ~ your own Angels, Ancestors & Animal Spirit Guides who walk with you now & always. This New Moon opens a portal of sorts, one that allows us to align with the ultimate power of transformation, transcending the current form, on Individual, as well as Social/Collective levels. And because the form is being seeded at this time, you may not exactly know what the logistics (3D) are, but you can connect with the *Essence* of what you want to co-create ~ the essence of what you want to feel ~ the essence of what you want your Earthly Experience to be! Connect to that *Essence* ~ Connect to the level of authentic power that your individual system can handle at this time ~ Connect to that which you want to bring to Life, that which you want to bring from Invisible Form (Scorpio), into Visible Form (Taurus) in a way that serves you and benefits others, while harming none. Then, do your Power Wishes/Scorpio Intentions around initiating another Annual Cycle of Transformation & Manifestation. We are expanding the possibilities as we speak, that enable us to combine our deepest core values with our most expanded vision for humanity! One.soul.at.a.time.

This New Moon asks us to get *congruent* with our inner & outer selves and renew our commitment to positive change. All of this speaks to the new realms emerging in place of all that has crumbled in recent years. Many sprouts of your hard work are now breaking ground, and if not, I suspect that a clearing is in the works so it won’t be long (hang in there). As you’re setting your New Moon intentions, consider how you *feel* about Pluto issues: death, power, sex and money (among other things). They don’t teach how to deal with these issues in school, most parents don’t teach their children in western culture so we all just do the best we can through trial and error. But these are integral aspects of life and there is a rhythm to them that you can learn for yourself. A Scorpio New Moon helps you renew your dedication to holding your own structure, owning your Inner Authority and directing your own personal power in new & better ways. All of that is getting an upgrade thanks to the additional alignments in the sky pattern.

So I would add here ~ that it is also the time of year when we do the most divinations & consulting with the Ancestors, Angels & Animal Spirit Guides because it is the time of year when we ask for clarity on all that has gone before so that we can make the best decisions about how to go forward, with their blessing. There is an Underworld Journey of sorts, that is available & customized for each of us but I’m happy to guide & support you as you navigate your own. I am finding that I have to *schedule* integration time these days because the energies are so rich & potent, so do what you can to get some alone-time to process. This is a *conception point* – which is an opportunity to co-create with your Soul and the Universe! I did some Special Divinations that I shared on our 11:11 Portal TeleCircle with Shanta Gabriel. We have several alignments before, after and leading up to Winter Solstice, so I pulled cards for from the Vision Quest Tarot deck.

11/15 ~ Venus (your values) ~square~ Pluto (transformation):

This activation brings intensity and it challenges you to grow (out of comfort zone, into new territory) especially where your relationships & finances are concerned. It creates very intense emotional responses and experiences with others that tends to trigger insecurities or hidden fears in one or both of you. Stability is not part of the equation at the moment, so prepare for inevitable change. You’ve probably already felt it coming (the shift in your relationship or financial situation), well, it’s here now, so you can be proactive on your own behalf or you can suffer the consequences of postponing the inevitable. (You may have heard me say: Pay now or pay double later. That applies to this transit too.) The natural reaction may be to try to hold on to the job or relationship, but try not to give in to that temptation. Pluto intensifies everything and the more you resist the necessary purification & change that Pluto brings, the more painful it usually is. It is better to clarify your values & priorities and choose change, rather than have it forced (more Pluto) upon you. Either way, once the dust settles, you should be better off because things either change for the better or go away altogether making room for something new and more in-alignment with your values & priorities of ‘now’.

11/16 ~ Venus (love, finances & relationships) ~square~ Jupiter (expansion & consciousness):

This energy is a happy-go-lucky kind of energy that doesn’t really want to be bothered with the mundane, however, you must not allow that passing energy to get you so off track that it costs you more than it is worth, down the road. If you don’t have any pressing obligations, then this will be a fun, relaxing time, possibly with friends or doing something sociable. However, if you have work to do, make sure it gets done first so you can truly enjoy yourself without the worry of the pile being bigger when you return. Watch the excesses as well, food, drink and/or spending. On a deeper level, you may have to make some adjustments in your relationships or finances. Jupiter always reveals how we make things bigger’ (consciously or not) and this activation usually helps us be more realistic, so we can align our true priorities with our grand vision of the future.

11/17 ~ Mercury (thoughts) ~oppose~ Uranus (radical shift):
(3 of 3: 10/7 ~ 10/19 ~ 11/17)

This energy tends to make your mind work in over-drive. Not that you think too much, but rather you may tend to think, speak and process information faster than usual. However, when you are moving that fast, sometimes you can overlook something vital. The negative expression of this energy tends to make you feel scattered and disorganized, but the positive side of it is making those brilliant connections that are normally just out of reach. Your perception and intuition are picking up so much in such a short period of time that you will want to review the details later to ensure you didn’t overlook something crucial to your development. You may be impatient with same-old/same-old routine but check in with your body to make sure it is not just your monkey mind playing tricks on you. It is a good time to breathe and be flexible because if you are impatient with this energy, you are also more likely to make mistakes. Anytime Uranus is involved, radical shifts and ah-ha moments are totally possible on an internal level, however, on an external level you may tend to blurt things our without proper forethought. Be sure to engage your Heart and some kind of filter, especially when communicating with others this week.

11/19 ~ 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 information 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, then take the time to meditate and connect to your plan mentally.

11/19 ~ Venus (values) ~square~ Saturn (foundation):

This energy can make you feel cool & detached with loved ones. It is time to ‘take stock’ of your relationships and really evaluate the level of balance between giving & receiving. Business or personal – relationships must have a balance of give & take. You may feel more aware of your true independence in life and start reevaluating the need for certain relationships, at this time. This energy pushes you to dig for your individual fortitude & determination to live according to your own personal values & priorities, so corrections or adjustments may be necessary and fairly obvious at this time. You may feel lonely, depressed or disconnected but it’s just the Universe forcing you to question or assess your current relationships, how you interact with others and how you allow them to interact with you. It’s good to periodically evaluate even the strongest relationship and check the foundation. Don’t give in to (ego-based) fears, focusing on the lack & limitation or what is not working, but instead build on your strengths and honor the goodness that you have created together, as well as within your Self. This is the best time for intentional solitude because the insights you acquire through this process will help you down the road to stabilize your future.

Kelly M. Beard: Weekly Forecast: October 11 – 17, 2020 (+ Mercury Retrograde guidance)

Weekly Forecast: October 11 – 17, 2020

Kelly M. Beard

a message from Kelly M. Beard Sunday, 11 October, 2020  (posted 12 October, 2020) The video version of this forecast, as read by Kelly, is available here.

.

10/11 ~ Sun (core essential Self) ~square~ Jupiter (imagination & truth):

This is a powerful energy and with that comes the necessity of discernment – it provokes you to get lots of things accomplished and that’s a good thing, however, beware of taking on more than you can actually handle. Having said that now, if you need that little “push” to get some things done, this is just the energy for you. It carries with it the optimism necessary to allow you to go beyond your norm and stretch in new ways. Sometimes there can be a tendency toward self-righteousness with this energy, but try to make it “self-directed” and you will benefit greatly. Walk your talk, embody your Truth. However, if you turn it on others, demanding they believe what you believe, you may have some difficulties. Be open & receptive, have a don’t-know mind because you never know what you may learn along the way that could really help you, now or in the future.

10/12 ~ Jupiter (Consciousness & Belief Systems) ~sextile~ Neptune Rx (Faith & Connection to Spirit): (3 of 3: 2/20 ~ 7/27 ~ 10/12)

This is an opportunity to connect to miracles, if you believe in them. It may be miracles, but it may also be the alignment between your Heart & Soul, that part of you that trusts your intuition and believes in a higher power or Source or Universal presence. There are a couple of expressions of this energy. This is a time when your spiritual beliefs expand, taking on a more broad, Universal feel. You may feel the urge to work with those less fortunate (never a bad idea) or you may meet someone that expands your thinking, opening you to new concepts of faith. Under this influence, you may feel more optimistic & philosophical than usual, about your life. It can be a fabulous energy to connect to, because when you are optimistic & faithful, as well as truly connected to the whole, you can manifest almost instantly. However, keep in mind that there are probably some very real challenges that you are facing, which require tangible efforts to resolve. Stay focused on the possibilities, while still doing what needs to be done to facilitate the highest possible outcome. The only challenge with this energy is that Jupiter, the planet of expansion and optimism, is getting together with Neptune, the planet of no boundaries, so be mindful of any excesses of any kind. Remember, all things in balance, it is rare that excess serves the higher good.
.

10/12 ~ Mercury (thoughts) ~sextile~ Venus (art & beauty):

This is a great opportunity to beautify your ideas, improve or deepen them so they are expressing more of your unique authenticity. Communication in relationships usually goes well under this influence. This energy also turns your thoughts and ideas toward how you feel and what inspires you with love & beauty. This is a great time to be particularly creative, or do something that activates your own Inner Artist. It is best to keep it light and let go of your mundane burdens just for a time. Pleasure reading, a walk on the beach, a play or museum are all good things to do at some point this week, if possible.
.

10/13 ~ Mercury Retro in SCORPIO (until Nov 3rd):

Mercury lingering in Scorpio is asking us all to do a little processing & integration in that Area of Life (House). It is time to process things in a different way, look at life from a different perspective and review the last quarter, 3-months, minimum. If you want to go further, 2014 was the last year that Mercury went backwards in a Water Sign, asking us to review dark thoughts & release toxic emotions and then forward in an Air Sign, asking us to claim or express a new level of conscious awareness. The ultimate goal is to blend the wisdom of your intellect with the wisdom of your gut-instincts. You have six or more senses that are yours alone. They are part of your own system of communication and they all bring you various kinds of information about your life, your environment and your world. I have always said that I don’t think it is too much to ask that we do a mental review 3-4 times per year because now, more than ever, we are picking up more information than we can ever apply or use in a lifetime. So periodic clearings are extremely helpful, it’s like pruning in the garden, it helps your Mental Body grow better.
.

Mercury Retrograde is best for activating different filters for everything, detach and consider it personal research. I’d remind you here that it’s an excellent time to turn all your inquiry & expression INWARD and reflect on how your Mental Body is doing. It is a delicious practice to get into scheduling your personal processing times to coincide with a Mercury Retrograde, especially when in Signs that directly affect you because then, it is personal. This year, my Scorpio & Libra Babies will have some extra processing to do but for the rest of us, the process still happens, and you want to look to the Houses in your chart to find the Areas of Life being activated for you personally. It’s not listed anymore but I still do a Special Mercury Retro reading if you ever want to dive deeper with me. 2020 is going to be a Water/Air combo and 2021 will be All Air, which also happens about every 5-6 years when Mercury will activate one Element so you can loosely track your own mental evolution.
.

This Mercury Retrograde in particular, will help you to gauge your emotional maturity over the last 3-6-9-12 months, the cultivation (and execution) of your ideas, thoughts & concepts, what you’ve learned – and in this case, Scorpio: what have you learned about your own personal power to create your world with your thoughts? What do you think about your sex life at this time? How are you making yourself more valuable to the team so you can establish more financial stability? What mental attitude has run its course and needs to die so a new mental attitude can live and thrive in real time?
.

Things to remember about Mercury Retro in SCORPIO:
♥ It is a conception point in some way, shape or form. You’re conceiving a new way of thinking, perceiving & processing what you’re learning as you navigate the year.
♥ Shadow work of any kind is deeply supported & particularly fruitful under this influence.
♥ It’s time to activate your Inner Detective and choose to “investigate” (with no judgment on what you discover) – you are merely gathering information on your own mind, mental body, mentality, how you think, express yourself and process the world around you – then, ultimately synthesize that into a belief system that guides your personal Story.
♥ It’s time to communicate on a Soul Level and connect with your deepest emotions, face your fears, research taboos, dig out secrets that are growing toxic and renew your connection to your own Soul. All with the goal of reestablishing balance within.
♥ Here we sometimes access our own unique RAW TRUTH (which is more/less challenging depending on your individual Nature) – but remember, you are not only uncovering the dark, negative ideas, thoughts & concepts, but Shadow is also where we hide our true gifts when they aren’t well-received by others.
♥ Consciousness: Once certain things are brought into the light of conscious awareness, they can be transformed or transmuted so the energy is liberated and freed up to be useful elsewhere. So too will you find your own buried treasure, hidden potential or untapped resources you have yet to consider, when you do this kind of personal inventory and conscious clearing periodically.
♥ Any time in the Scorpio realms we have to acknowledge our own Shadow. I suggest giving it something to do so it doesn’t undermine your evolution with toxic, repetitive patterns, mental, physical or emotional.
♥ This is a good time to reclaim the power of your mind. What are you allowing to influence your thoughts & ideas? It’s time to re-set to your original blueprint and start fresh in some way.
♥ Remember the creative and destructive power of language. It is time to renew your language or learn a new language altogether.
.

10/13 ~ Sun (core essential Self) ~oppose~ Mars Rx (purpose & desire):

This energy is a push-pull between who you think you are and what you say you want and how your choices reveal the truth. For some, it can feel like a very confrontational energy that often manifests by awakening you to some deeper truth about your true nature (confronting a new aspect of Self in a whole new way). Of course, confrontations can also manifest with others who have opposing views of you or your situation. This is a personal awakening and a potent midpoint in any cycle, which is the most powerful course-correcting time. Here, at the midpoint, how is it going? How do your life & choices reflect your true purpose & deepest desire for your own life? It is a powerful time, and you will find out what you are made of and if your choices were made from your Higher Self or your lower will. You may feel uncomfortable with what is revealed at this time, but you are deeply supported as you recognize your own unconscious extremes and find your new, conscious middle ground. If you find yourself dealing with inner or outer struggles, try to pause to question your motivation and determine the depth of your desire to continue in that direction. Often, we act out of habit and right now, it is time to be fully present. The best way to use this energy is to own any ego issues, put them in perspective and decide to be more congruent with your thoughts, words and deeds.
.

10/15 ~ Sun (illumination) ~square~ Pluto (transformation):

This is a challenge to grow out of your comfort zone and into new territory. That said, with Pluto in Capricorn (2008-2024), twice a year for these 16-years, when the Sun is in Aries (Spring) and Libra (Fall), we get an opportunity to grow & change in fundamental departments of life: self vs other and home vs work. In this case, and during these years, we are literally changing how we do ALL of this. Each year builds on the previous and we are now 12-years into the 16-year process of transformation – that is the third and final quarter, an incredibly potent point in time & space. It is here that you have the most information to consciously work with as you prepare for the final 4-years, and ultimately, what you would like to get out of your conscious efforts and dedication. Sun helps us clarify and when working with Pluto, it is usually what is NOT working, what has run its course and is ready to be composted into new Life, new growth and a new direction (for Self). Pluto is the Purifier, distilling things back to their true and original essence, fight that and it can be painful, work with it consciously and it can be transformative and will heal you at the deepest root of any challenge. You can use this activation to honor that which has become obvious, or is highlighted in the here & now and purge or purify this energy. You are deeply supported for releasing old patterns and setting new conscious practices into action. Tie up loose ends, close multiple chapters, mourn & move on. As you do that, you will feel lighter & brighter and more grounded in your true Self, your evolved Self.
.

10/16 ~ LIBRA Super/New Moon:

The Libra New Moon is an excellent time to set your intentions for restored balance within your own Being, enabling healthier relationships, naturally. Keep in mind you will always attract your own *Vibrational Match* … so how’s your vibe these days? Inviting, welcoming … or … guarded and suspicious? This is the month to set intentions around conscious equal partnership, whether public or private, short-term or long-term, balance is the key. This is the month to honor The Scales that we must weigh our personal progress against our obvious manifestations in relationships (for better or worse). It’s time to assess the strength & value of each one (one-by-one) and what kind of time, energy & resources you have and are willing to invest further with this person, situation or agreement. Soulful kinship and a sense of belonging are vital for most humans and this year, we will cultivate that more than ever. We can renegotiate as we go, at regular intervals, and I highly recommend that you do. We can be part of something without being burdened by it. We can have soulful connections without losing ourselves. We can still love each other even if/when we do not agree. It’s time to define your individual terms and start renegotiating with those who matter, while releasing those people, situations or agreements which are no longer relevant or useful.

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.

Kelly M. Beard: New Venus Cycle in Gemini 2020

New Venus Cycle in Gemini 2020

Venus Retrograde in *GEMINI*

Time to Review, Reflect & Set Conscious Intentions
for Your Own Core Values & Current Priorities

New Venus Cycle ~ GEMINI Theme
May 2020 – January 2022

~ LOVE ~
the unifying energetic force that exists in/through all life
~ VALUES ~
what you spend your resources on (time/energy/money)
~ ART & BEAUTY ~
the invisible essence which links all life
and transcends language or species
~ CULTURE ~
what humanity collectively creates

Your Invitation to Meet Venus

The Value of Venus Retrograde:

The whole point of any planet going Retrograde is to bring up the issues of its domain, and in Venus’ case, the primary issues are: values, priorities, beauty, love, relationships and resources. It brings these aspects of life up to the surface for everyone. Essentially, this is getting your attention in a way that prompts you to want to explore more deeply and look at things from a variety of other or new perspectives. Before charting the course of future choices & forward movement, there is a personal review & an individual clearing that must happen for you to acquire more clarity & sure-footedness.

The Current Theme + Questions to Contemplate:

The Sign that the Retrograde falls in represents the ‘theme’ (aka Overtone) and is where Venus extends her stay for one and all. For example, this one is in Gemini. 2012 was the last time Venus Retrograded through Gemini (before that, 2004). So, how have your values and priorities evolved over the last 8-years where your authentic voice, communication, self-expression, creative ideas, thoughts & concepts are concerned? How would you like to evolve over the next 8-years? Venus energy focuses your attention on what you deeply value or what you give your resources to, which tells the Universe what you truly value. How did you spend your time, energy and money over the last cycle or two? How will/can that change going forward for the next 8-years?

Do You Want to Scratch the Surface?

This is an excellent cycle to consciously co-create with, and you don’t even have to know or understand astrology itself. There are many ways to do this, but simple awareness of the cycle is a good start. Beyond that, I have created several custom tools to support this process. If you just want to get to know how Venus feels moving through your own life (chart), then I recommend getting your Personal Venus Activations. They support you like a custom horoscope that focuses on your Relationships, Finances & Magnetics.

Or Do You Want to Go Deeper?

If you’d like to track her cycle by going narrow and deep into what she activates for you personally, then I recommend that you get your Custom Guide and join the Venus Circle. It can be quite remarkable to track this cycle as it unfolds over the next 1-2 years. Venus enters the zone 4/3 which will be reviewed between May 13th (retro) -thru- June 25th (direct), then anchored during Summer/Winter 2020. It is a powerful experience to follow her cycle like this. Please got to my website for details and be sure to join us for the FREE 2-Part Intro April 2020! Ok, let’s dive in!

Important Details of NOW

Enter Shadow: April 3 – May 13, 2020
Introduction/Initiation of New You & New Priorities

Retrograde/Initiation: May 13 – June 25, 2020
Re-View, Re-Evaluate, Re-Vision, Re-Examine Relationships & Finances

Direct/Integration: June 25 – July 29, 2020
Integration of the New You & New Priorities

Exit Shadow: July 29 – August 7, 2020
Anchoring the NEW Ideas & Expression and Grounding NEW 8-year Cycle

Venus Rules: values, priorities, resources, relationships, finances, love, art, beauty, culture and, in Gemini, the lesson of creativity, communication and self-expression is what she is animating and awakening for one and all. It is a call from within, to restore balance as an individual, within the context of your thinking and the value of your ideas, thoughts, concepts and individual voice. Your sense of self-worth and self-value may be in need of some focus or attention. You have evolved in the last 8-years (or more). This is a great opportunity to renegotiate the terms of both your personal and professional relationships so you can determine what is no longer important to you, while preparing to go deeper.

Relationship Priorities: If you align your priorities within your Being, as well as within your primary relationships of now, then it will make the review in your Gemini department more productive (and less debilitating). When Venus is in Gemini, it is time to assess your priorities and reestablish the value of your ideas, thoughts & creations. In relationships, it’s time to review what needs to be communicated or expressed for the health of your own relationships that mean the most to you, at this time. You’ll be assessing what and who is actually worth it to invest in further.

Choices + Decisions: If you are tracking your own evolution, then you may be feeling that you have stepped into a New Identity (2017), which required you to learn about Power & Relationships (2018) in a new way so that right now (2020), you could use this Venus Retro to explore the many choices, decisions, options & opportunities that are available to you which were not available 18-months ago, 8-years ago or maybe ever. You are going to be presented with new possibilities and it’s a good time to get clear on your personal values and priorities so that you can choose wisely.

VENUS reminds us that … ALL LIFE IS INTER-CONNECTED

GEMINI reminds us that … ACTION STEMS FROM THOUGHT

8-year Cycle …

Venus Retrogrades every 18-months or so, which means that your *Values and Priorities* shift on a fairly regular basis. Getting a rhythm to this, internally, will help you flow with your own evolution with less fear or anxiety and more trust in the natural order of things, which includes change. Venus’ 8-year cycle brings monumental shifts around what is truly important to you and is animated by the Sign it falls in. This Venus work is going to be very personal for those with Gemini/Sagittarius and Virgo/Pisces activated in their charts. Things that were important to you 8-years ago are probably not so vital now, and things that were not even on your list of priorities may have moved to the top.

New Upgrades Available …

So consider this next 4 months (April – August 2020) a literal and figurative UPGRADE to your operating system (mind) where your values and priorities (Venus) are concerned. What is most important to you and how you think has likely shifted dramatically since 2012, and will shift again by 2028 (next Venus Retrograde in Gemini). Use the 40-day Retrograde (or any 40-days that works for you during this 4-mo period) and address the issues of your Gemini Planets & Houses (in your personal chart) so that you can consciously co-create.

Process, Integrate + Prepare …

Now, as you are able to sufficiently release the “old you” ~ along with the “old” values & priorities ~ this cycle brings the time to explore how your mind guides your decision-making process on many levels, including unconscious/subconscious levels. The journey through *GEMINI* ~ April – August 2020 ~ is a great time to leave the dark, heavy Scorpio process behind and open up to what new life can grow in the empty space recently created within YOU, your mind, body, spirit, head & heart! Retrogrades turn the energy inward. It’s time to explore the possibilities within your own *Mind & Heart* and get to building it so that it can support you and nourish others a little bit down the road.


Raw but Ready …

Venus is about beauty and culture and how all living things are related and affect one another. Gemini energy will help us explore the possibilities and hopefully, learn something new. Basically, the Soul-Level re-connection we just cultivated over the last Venus Cycle (18-months) has perhaps left us a little “raw” but also, clarified, purified & renewed … down to our core. Now we must explore the “ideas” of who we can become, individually and collectively. What was all that deep delving self-work for if not to clear space for new ideas to come in? You may find that your thinking and your choices no longer reflect what is really important to you in the here & now. Ho do you want to express in new & different ways than over the last 8-years? Who do you *think* you are? What do your choices and decision-making processes reveal about who you really are and what’s really important to you? It is time to evolve and explore new ideas and new perspectives, while not getting overwhelmed by the limitlessness of the possibilities or distracted by details.

Re-Calibrate Your Perspective …

In this case, Gemini, means your thinking has evolved over the last 8-years and adjustments to your language and behavior should reflect the upgrade. Taking a time-out to review your own mind, how it works, what it focuses on and how it serves you (or not) is what this Retrograde will likely bring to the fore. Gemini energy always reveals multiple perspectives and illustrates better than any other Sign how multiple “stories” can be conflicting and yet still be true (or at least relevant). It’s time to think another way regarding your Values & Priorities.

Clean the Filter …

We each have a unique “filter” that we run the information through. You may know what I mean, have you ever said something to someone who took it completely wrong? That’s THEIR filter being engaged. You have used your thoughts and language to convey something, they have then run it through their filter (life experience or level of consciousness or knowledge base) and it completely altered the original meaning.

Well, I love to use the “dryer filter” analogy here. When we clean the lint out of the dryer filter (when washing clothes), you think you’ve cleaned it. And for the most part, you have. However, over long periods of time, a waxy build-up accumulates on the filter and if you were to try to run water through it, you would find that you really need to “scrub, rinse, repeat” before that water would flow through the filter (with ease). Our personal, mental filters can be like this too! Once some people define something as “truth” they don’t question it or review it for current relevance and therefore, their thinking becomes outdated and stagnant, very much like that clogged filter. New ideas, thoughts & concepts cannot get through and now the filter is no longer working as intended.

Research, Revisions + Resolutions …

The Retrograde period should afford you time for the *Review*. Review your thoughts and beliefs, do some clearing & releasing and prepare the way for new thought, new learning and new ideas to have a place to exist and evolve. Retrogrades are always good for research, revisions and resolutions. Do your thoughts, words and deeds reflect your deepest, core values? Do you spend your resources of time, energy & money on: memories or materials? Education or elitism? Progress or postponement?

Gemini Energy …

Gemini energy is all about how we think, process and express what we learn. It’s the department of life where communication and being able to express your Self is most important. This is the Area of Life you love to think about, talk about and explore the most. It’s about gathering, disseminating and processing the information you gather just through your own 6-senses and life experience. How you learn and what you like to research is also a reflection of your consciousness.

Mercury Energy …

Mercury energy is about change, duality, choices, crossroads, and of course, transition. Gemini is ruled by Mercury, which rules (among other things) transition. Transition originally meant “going across or over” ~ sometimes it means changing from one state of form or being to another. What is powerful about this is not in the ‘being here or there’, but in being PRESENT wherever you are. If you are consciously participating in life, then this is a potent time for you. However, if you are overwhelmed and your systems are on overload, you are going to short-circuit, then you may have to go down before you can come up and function properly.

Special Venus Retrograde …

Every 113-130 years, Venus crosses in front of the Sun twice in 8-years and last time was 2004 & 2012. I had a special meditation circle in 2004 to celebrate and I actually got to witness it in 2012, on the Big Island, HI. Every time we have this special alignment, it is in Gemini or Sagittarius so it always coincides with an evolution of the collective values & social consciousness. It just so happens that then and now, we also had Gemini/Sag Eclipses permanently re-setting patterns in the social & collective realms, as well as on an individual level for those with Mutable Signs activated in their chart.

Realign with the Sacred Feminine + Restore Balance Within …

These alignments create portals through which we, as individuals and a collective, can choose to activate and move through consciously or not. This particular portal, which is opening again now, in 2020, is restoring balance between Masculine and Feminine within and around us. At this time, we should activate our Inner-Feminine energy, which knows instinctively how to clear a space with an intention, extend the invitation for all that you need, desire and deserve and then allow Intuition to guide the next move. The Feminine Way of getting things done is no better or worse than the Masculine Way of getting things done, it is just different.

Then + Now …

The year 2012 – similarly to now 2020 – Mars & Venus will Retro in same year, further amplifying this incredible cycle that always leads to the Evolution of BALANCE ~ Ebb/Flow ~ Yin/Yang ~ Up/Down ~ Inner/Outer ~ Above/Below. If any living thing is imbalanced in any way, it affects us ALL … sooner or later. In essence, if we are to align our reality (Earth) with our core identity (Sun) and fulfill our Infinite potential as human beings, we will need Venus (Love) to do it because she represents all the key ingredients that we need to succeed!

Relevant Reflections

Last Venus in Gemini ~

It is a fairly regular occurrence for Venus to move through Gemini every year or so. The last time was June/July 2019. It’s catching it at the Retrograde that makes the current one special. However, the last cycle or two that you can remember, may have some clues, upon reflection, that turn out to be some kind of confirmation of what you are facing and reviewing now.

Previous Venus Retrograde in Gemini ~

2012 / 2004 / 1996 / 1988 (8-year cycles)
This is a larger Cycle to focus on but still may yield some clues. Basically, all cycles eventually repeat themselves, some more often than others. The same Gemini energy was activated back then, and will be again, however, the surrounding planetary support changes ~ the human condition evolves ~ your own personal support systems shapeshift as needed. Look for any pattern in your intimate life. Often these years will coincide with ex-partners circling back or significant past-life connections becoming obvious.

Think about the Sign Lesson: GEMINI Voice, Communication & Self-Expression. The GEMINI Issues: Ideas, Thoughts, Concepts, Facts, Information, Mental Processing & How You Express All that You Know – that’s what’s back on the table. You should be able to delineate a pattern. Think of creative babies, ideas & stories, real or metaphorical, that you have experienced around those years. Think about your mental well-being and how your education or consciousness has evolved. Think about how you were creating your reality and with what resources. Think of the life-changing events that led you to here and now.

Now what? What do you want to create with your voice & power of choice over the next 8 years? Set an intention to purify and distill your own communication or self-expression issues into their most useful and basic elements. As a human being with conscious awareness, you are Infinitely creative and connected to an Infinite power Source.

Venus Retrogrades every 18-months, which means that our Values and Priorities shift, in small ways, on a fairly regular basis, but in huge ways every 8-years. Getting a rhythm to this, internally, will help you flow with your own personal evolution with far less fear or anxiety and more trust in the natural order of things, which includes your own natural evolution.

Below, you will find two lists which are especially good to refer to during the Retro period and great to check-in with throughout the cycle to ensure that you are on track. ‘On track’ means that you are expressing the Light aspects of Venus in Gemini & minimizing your expression of the Shadow aspects of Venus in Gemini.

Weekly Forecast: April 5 – 11, 2020

Sunday, 5 April, 2020  (posted 6 April, 2020)

 

4/7 ~ LIBRA Super/Full Moon:

Can you feel the process that you have been through, personally, over the last 6-months? Can you feel the Universe reshaping, repositioning you to birth a whole new way of living on Earth and relating with other living beings? In order to do that, relate in a whole new way with Life, we’ve undergone quite a rigorous release process over the last 6-months alone. When you ‘shed skins’, you have to know that you are raw & vulnerable as you grow new skin or if it is a new birth of any kind, there is that initial stage of development that immediately follows birth that is the most vital for the health & well-being of the (creative) baby.

As for our Libra Super/Full Moon, this is giving us a chance to do this deep clearing in the relationship department and honor the annual opportunity to complete things and tie up any loose ends in our relationships, personal, professional or both. That means anything and anyone that you have to relate to on a regular basis has this annual opportunity for renewal on a very deep level. It is a time to notice what is out of balance and take advantage of the initiatory energy of the Spring to clear it out and make space for new relationships and for new ways of relating in general. This one has so much additional power & juice for clearing out old, toxic, imbalanced relationships in a way that is so obvious that it makes it almost effortless to finally let go. You will also be shown the new possibilities for nourishing & supportive, balanced & reciprocal relationships, partnerships & collaborations that are being seeded at this time in your life.

Where is the beauty? fun? joy? supportive, helpful, peaceful people? What nourishes your body? mind? soul? spirit? Think in terms of how that has evolved over the last 6-months, 1-year and over the last 8-years for sure. What you used to be magnetized and attracted to has likely evolved, deepened and/or changed completely from 7-10 years ago. It’s time to do some internal reflection on the lessons & blessings you have gained through all your current relationships. No matter how grueling or treacherous they’ve been, you’ve learned something about your Self and humanity and how peace must be nurtured. Now, the Universe, the planets, Mother Earth herself all support you in stepping up and into NEW ways of being your Self, which automatically shifts how you relate with Others, on every level. Many small Circles and Communities have strong roots and are growing amazing things that will feed us all in the end. Find your inner balance, tap into this Spring Season when physical balance is naturally available and call in more balance & reciprocity in your personal & professional relationships. It’s time to allow more good into your life. Practice with more Light this season. Also consider what relationship & partnership seeds got planted with the Libra Super/New Moon on 9.28.2019 (6-months ago).

4/7 ~ Mars (action) ~square~ Uranus (freedom):

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

4/7 ~ 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 discretion around who and when you share these new-found insights.

4/7 ~ Mercury (your voice) ~sextile~ Jupiter (expansion):

Where Sun sextile Jupiter is more about YOU, this activation is more about your consciousness, ideas, thoughts & concepts (Mercury), which Jupiter expands in some way, helping you to ‘think bigger’, edit your personal Story and step up your game in some way. This is also a great energy to work with if you are in school, learning something new, expanding your knowledge base or gathering new tools & information to support your goals. Your dreams are tapping you on the shoulder, demanding some attention. Mundane issues are not your concern right now, you want to figure out how to create the life you’ve been imagining. This energy also provokes within you the awareness & understanding that being generous naturally attracts generosity to you. The big picture and overall patterns which have led you to this point are being brought into the light. Feeling clear, sharp, alert and optimistic, you begin to realize that anything you can imagine (or remember), you can achieve.

4/10 ~ Mercury Enters ARIES:

Mercury is officially out of the retro-zone! As it travels through Aries, it is giving you permission to explore your individual options. Life is in a weird place these days, what has opened up for you that was previously unavailable or not an option? It’s time to think about your needs versus your desires and how to recalibrate that balance in light of all the recent shifts & turn-arounds.

4/11 ~ Mercury (communication) ~sextile~ Saturn (responsibility):

This energy is really good for being able to objectively see what needs to be changed, fixed or stabilized in your life or environment. One expression of this energy is a tendency toward depression or apathy, but a better expression would be facing what needs to be done and following through on what you have begun. You may feel the need to organize things at home or work, or perhaps take a class or workshop of some sort that will help you attain your current goals. Either way, be focused but not too serious – balance in all things. It’s when you focus on the lack and limitation that you feel overwhelmed and sometimes helpless. That’s not the point of this energy. It’s just time to do some serious thinking, tend to the details, take stock and make changes accordingly.

Weekly Forecast: March 15 – 21, 2020

The video version of this forecast, as read by Kelly, is available here.

Note from Kelly:
This is a very special & potent week! Saturn is moving into Aquarius for the first time in 28-years, which is BIG, especially for anyone born with Saturn in Leo/Aquarius/Taurus or Scorpio! This is one of those Special Alignments that I discussed earlier in the year, so I will be referring you back to that every time we have one, which is now, in March and again in April, June, July, Oct, Nov & Dec. For those of you who may have already listened to that and do not see the value in reviewing, let me assure you, there is definite value in listening to it more than once because you will receive altogether new perspectives & ideas. Sometimes, when life is really hectic, and I listen to something I KNOW I have already heard, I am amazed to find I don’t remember any of it and that it is now much more timely & useful for me. Just an idea 😉

I have 3-events to share before I launch into our rich & fertile forecast, which only consists of two official activations but boy do they *matter* at this juncture in life but they also come later in the week. Sunday, I am live in Chicago, Monday is when Shanta’s Spring Anustan begins, Tuesday is my IGLive day ~ plus Shanta & I are doing our Annual Equinox gathering Thursday.

Is anyone else feeling that Phoenix-from-the-Ashes vibe? All excess & non-essential scorched away, leaving space for a pure, clean new beginning. Whether within or without, whether by conscious inner choice or uncontrollable outer influences (wooosh!), we’ve all been pushed waaay out of comfort zone and definitely, into NEW Territory!

It’s no wonder, with Eclipses (Cancer/Capricorn), Super Full Moons (Leo/Virgo/Libra), the 3 High Moons of Spring coming (Libra/Scorpio/Sag Full Moons) and all the additional (active) planetary cycles converging at once. The *Soil of Now* is extremely fertile, we must plant several seeds, knowing that only a few will take root and grow to full maturity and ultimately feed you & others, so choose to plant, cultivate & nurture wisely this Spring because you are *Planting the Garden of Your Soul*.

And it is also a good time for self-inquiry. What are you cultivating within your Being? your Environment? your Relationships, Partnerships & Collaborations? What needs to be ‘weeded out’ so you can grow better, stronger & more beautiful? What needs to be fortified within?

I’m cultivating my own new personal routine that supports the new work in the world that I am aspiring to. I’m nurturing the relationships that are most important to me, not just now, but in the future as well. I’ve weeded out distractions, delusions & inner demons that block or deny the Light. I am fortifying my body, mind & spirit because many of you already know that I’ve been holding back due to parenting obligations, but Mama has hit *Empty Nest* and I’m ready to play! So I want to look and feel my best when we finally do connect in-person.

There is power in holding a conscious intent or focus and even more so when the group energy is also being directed for the upliftment of the global community, of which you/we are a primary part. What we are coming together to co-create transcends language, like art & music, energy needs no translation … you just feel it.

Weekly Forecast: March 15 – 21, 2020

3/19 ~ 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 information to have when making choices & decisions for your Self. This activation gives you access to self-discipline and the ability to consider all your options before deciding on anything. This is a great 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, then take the time to meditate and connect to your plan mentally, emotionally & spiritually (perhaps a vision board is in order?).

3/20 ~ Mars (passion) ~conjunct~ Jupiter (expansion):

This is an excellent energy if you are beginning a new project or business because you will have considerably more energy than usual so use it wisely. Don’t take unnecessary risks, but calculated risks are actually well-supported for a positive outcome under this influence. You will be optimistic and willing to do whatever it takes to facilitate progress. At the same time, if you are not initiating something and perhaps you are struggling on one level or another, then watch your temper as things may appear worse than they really are. This is a huge dose of Truth and passion, so direct it consciously and you will accomplish great things in a short amount of time.

Mars only initiates with Jupiter every two years, so this is also the beginning of a new 2-year cycle and because of their respective cycles (Mars/2-yrs and Jupiter/12-yrs), the Sign is the magical ingredient to take note of, in this case (2020), they are connecting in Capricorn and the last time they initiated here was in 1984 so this is a particularly potent time to initiate, renew & expand the Capricorn department of life in a powerful way. Being responsible for who you are and what you want cannot be ignored this year and the more you postpone or avoid certain individual responsibilities, the more it affects other people and the more literal *clean up* you’ll have to do. Beyond that, if you do not choose a direction or purpose in life, often, life will force one upon you (and no one likes to do it that way). This is an excellent combo for finally holding your own in some way, embodying your Inner Authority to choose the direction of your life and then being fully responsible for (and okay with) the results of your choices.

3/21 ~ Saturn Enters AQUARIUS:

We are in an unprecedented *Seed Time* for our personal, social & collective lives. Think of Saturn as a Teacher/Guide. Think of Aries thru Pisces as the Lessons that we all have to learn and just like any other education, some things will be naturally easier & naturally harder, according to your individual blueprint. During Capricorn, the Lessons have to do with personal responsibility & accountability in a myriad of ways, as well as how we structure our lives and if they support & protect us (or not). Capricorn is one of Saturn’s favorite subjects to teach and you can see, it’s also an underlying theme that he carries throughout all twelve lessons because of Saturn’s natural inclinations.

We just spent the last 2+ years, in Capricorn, learning about being responsible for ourselves as individuals but also as a collective. Saturn moving through your Capricorn House was to check for stability & instability, strength & weakness – as well as the essential & the truly non-essential so that it can eliminate, fortify & upgrade to something more appropriate to here & now. Now, until Uranus was discovered, Saturn was the traditional ruler of Aquarius too so we may see an evolution of the themes already on the table. Sovereignty and the inner authority of the individual has evolved and so have the outer authorities like governments & all institutions, as well as those they were intended to serve.

So moving through Aquarius over the next 2+years, we will learn about self-sovereignty as well as local & global communities. This is the dawn of the Age of Aquarius ~ when we get to be our individual selves with full conscious awareness that we are an intricate piece of the whole at the same time. Saturn’s sojourn through any sign will first dig up the weaknesses and unstable aspects so that it can reorganize with the values and priorities of NOW. We are literally ending an era when government elite got to run everything and now humanity is going to shift and learn how to be self-governed and self-contained within the communities in which we actually live and function.

It’s time to dream up a new way to function on this ever-evolving – as well as living, breathing planet! I think we will also have some technological breakthroughs that actually help instead of harm the Earth. We will discover a kinship with our fellow beings that finally makes it okay and even welcome to be a unique, thinking, feeling, breathing individual. We are not cookie-cutter creatures, we are vastly different and we all have something unique to offer, just like every species of plant, mineral or animal. We are from the same family but we each bring our own particular Medicine to the mix! We are going to celebrate that … once we stabilize a new way of socializing and functioning together, rather than the old patriarchal ways of divide & conquer. Volunteering and working as a unit is going to blossom and we’ll be connecting with folks across the globe as if we are old friends or long lost relatives.

Note from Kelly:
If you missed the Venus Conversation between me and Micah Nilsson of Al-Kemi.com, she is a brilliant herbalist and was a delightful co-host – we chopped it up last Thursday and though the page will now reflect my upcoming convo with Cinnamon Rose of PriestessWarriorLover.com, you can still submit the request form HERE and put in the notes which audio you’d like to receive. I am opening the Venus Circle up to the public until April (we start the new cycle with a new Reading + Custom Guide in May 2020) and asking you to invite those you think would resonate with these kinds of talks. I’m creating my own podcast too, so I welcome suggested topics and guests for that as well. Also, I may be a little slow to return emails & texts over the next 2-weeks because I am taking two classes at the same time – as a student 🙂 I’m so excited!

1/21 ~ Kelly’s Great Experiment:
For the first quarter of 2020, I am waaaaay out of my comfort zone and into new territory on Instagram! Yes, my loyal followers, do not be too shocked LOL! But Pixie makes IG look possible even fun so I am giving it a shot and I invite those of you who are or know someone into Instagram to join us. My name there is: @TheSacredSandbox and I will be having a fun conversation with Marji of @Basmatidotcom every Tuesday @4pm (est) / 1pm (pst). Basmati.com is an excellent resource for all things wellness, health & beauty – they have practitioners and products but most of all they have the best variety of excellent articles for you to learn about almost anything. Spirit Library.com is my favorite for all things Spiritual – and Basmati is where I go for all things Physical, Mental & Emotional – they are both great resources. Also, the talk will stay on IG for 24-hours if you miss it Live and I will be uploading them to my KarmicTools Youtube Channel so we can all see them there too!

1/23 ~ Sun (source & essential Self) ~square~ Uranus (awakening & radical shift):
As with any Uranus activation, this one disrupts the normal flow to facilitate a ‘break to realign’ moment. While sometimes disruptive & challenging, the ultimate result is usually refreshing in some way. Consider a time when the energy thickens, gathering for a severe thunderstorm, then releasing buckets of rain, for hours, you sleep deeply that night and awaken to a bright sunny morning with birds chirping unusually loud outside your window. Got the visual? ; -)) This activation is the necessary challenge that gets your attention that something better is available, if you’re willing to improvise and think on your feet. If you’ve been unusually restricted in some way, you may feel particularly restless with this energy. Rather than being reactive to any unexpected shifts (within or without), it’s best to take a pause for the cause, step back and try to gain some perspective. Remember to be present, too far in the past can be depressing and too far into the future, and you cause your Self unnecessary anxiety. Breathe, get under the sky, invite the clarity that you need about the next step and trust your gut. This energy, while sometimes uncomfortable and often sudden, is very necessary to disrupt any illusions/delusions that you may be holding onto at this time because it is time to express your Self in all new ways. So experiment – have fun with it – and don’t be attached to outcome just yet.

1/23 ~ Venus (relationships) ~sextile~ Jupiter (optimism):
This energy expands your relationships, personal or professional, allowing you to gain traction in expressing the Highest vibration that’s possible for that particular connection. In personal relationships, things are sociable, light & fun. In professional or public relationships, things can go more smoothly as folks are more relaxed & easy-going, upbeat & open to exchanging ideas & concepts (like networking expands your business). This energy activates our innate optimism and natural positive thinking, so it is a good time to look into expanding your knowledge base in some way that makes you more valuable to the team. You’ll have that connection to your instincts and confidence with others that is a winning combination!

1/24 ~ AQUARIUS New Moon:
This month, we are ready to seed completely new patterns & cycles of being an individual contributor to a larger community. Every year, we use this time to laser away the non-essential and anything blocking the new vision for the year from taking root. What is most important to you this year – 2020? Are you working on the new role that you want to play going forward, at this new level of maturity and higher level of consciousness? And what kind of communities do you want to be a part of? And contribute your energy to? Aquarius New Moon is when you can dig in to how your *Unique Essence* can contribute to humanity & the planet in some way. It’s connecting to your Leo/Heart and discerning what you most Taurus/Value and are willing to build or invest in so that you are stabilized & whole enough to channel your clean, authentic Scorpio/Power for the greater good of Aquarius/ALL! This month, my *Fixed* Babies are on deck! Aquarius/Initiation ~ Leo/Integration ~ Taurus/Scorpio/Growth. Dec/Jan has led right to here & now, so it is good to do a little review of what NEW Sagittarius Truth/Story is emerging and what NEW Capricorn Structure/Foundation you are creating that will *contain, nurture & support* your NEW Aquarian Unique Brilliance that wants to come through YOU! Even if it is simply living more completely centered in your Authentic Self and sharing THAT with others!

1/25 ~ Mercury (expression) ~sextile~ Mars (passion):
This is a healthy selfish energy (aka self-preservation). Do not hold back this week. If you have a big dream or serious goal that you have been working toward, then this is the time that may attract the assistance you need from the Universe. This is definitely a “work” type of energy, however, it brings with it the caveat that it is best if you work alone on something important to you. No one else is (or ever will be) as dedicated to your goal as YOU will be, nor should you expect them to be. You are now connected to the extra energy it takes to push your goals to the next level, bringing you a sense of accomplishment while also outlining the next tasks to be done. Opportunities present themselves all the time, all you have to do is be ready!! If you are given the opportunity to make a presentation, go for it! Your clarity, energy & enthusiasm will be unmatched and that’s what people respond to. Don’t choose this time to be “shy” or doubt that you’re ready – you are definitely ready … otherwise you wouldn’t be here!! One of my favorite sayings is: “At the moment of commitment, the Universe conspires to assist you!” It’s time to decide if you are committed and how truly committed you are, to owning your success.
