According to Rik, the US Chart is going through a Pluto return. Pluto is the God of the Underworld. This particular cycle has never occurred before in the US, because we are a young country. Yes, I feel that much of the darkness coming to light (into our awareness) is happening to clear the ground for something better. We are more ready to handle it than we realize.
Even if “it doesn’t look easy, and doesn’t look fun,” I feel that our free will choices, staying connected to spirit through nature and meditation, and lots of self care, including setting limits and firm boundaries will help. Seek out that which feeds your passion, your soul, and you will draw to you like-minded people. Develop a spiritual discipline. Creating community takes a little effort, and going outside our comfort zones, but it’s also inspiring to know we are not alone in our “crazy” as we navigate these challenging times.
More and more people are awakening and seeing that the “us and them” game is not about partisan politics but about humanity vs. the Cabal. A good mantra for these times:

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 highly sought after spiritual intuitive and Astro-Numerologist, Tania Gabrielle introduced the merging of two ancient divination arts – Astrology and Numerology – to the Western World, unlocking the codes in the stars, names, dates and numbers to facilitate wealth (well-being) and joy with a primary focus on sharing spiritual principles that manifest practical, real-life results.
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. .
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. .
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.

MON: Venus quincunx Saturn, Venus trine Mars, Saturn stations direct TUE: Sun opposite Chiron, Mars square Saturn WED: Mercury sesquiquadrate Neptune THU: Full Moon in Aries, 2:05 p.m. PDT FRI: Venus opposite Ceres, Sun quincunx Uranus, Venus enters Virgo SAT: Jupiter parallel Pluto, Mars conjunct Eris, Mercury quincunx Chiron SUN: Pluto stations direct
THERE’S a storm a-brewin’. At times like these, our efforts are best focused in setting boundaries and staying calm. We realize that our main work is to maintain our balance, since we cannot stop the incoming waves, nor stem the tides that are turning.
The two tides that are in the process of turning are Saturn and Pluto, both of which go direct this week after being retrograde since April. When planets come to a standstill to change direction, we feel their influence more strongly — and in a year that began with the life-changing Saturn-Pluto conjunction, to have both planets at a standstill at virtually the same time makes this a pivotal week in a very pivotal year.
We can expect delays and frustrations (Saturn) this week, as well as more evidence of dysfunctional systems that must be either renovated or scrapped completely (Pluto).
ADDING to the complexity of these days, Saturn is tightly square warrior Mars as the Ringed Planet stations direct on Monday. If we’ve been feeling controlled by circumstances recently, the pressure of this square may feel especially oppressive. It represents obstacles to the fulfillment of our desires, and tempts us to drink from a deep well of futility, if we take it all too much to heart.
One key to navigating this square is to call upon the qualities of wisdom, detachment, and objectivity. The more we are able to keep events in perspective, and not overreact, the easier our passage through the storm will be.
A SECOND TACTIC is to take things quite literally one step at a time. If there’s an issue to be resolved, just find the next piece of the puzzle, rather than trying to figure out how the whole picture will come together. It will be too easy to go into overwhelm if we have that expectation.
Basically, we can’t see around the corner with a square aspect. We are mostly aware of the obstacle in front of us. That obstacle can evoke irritation at one end of the spectrum, fear at the other end, and anger somewhere in the middle.
Actions motivated by any of these lower-vibrational emotions are likely to backfire. If you’re feeling impatient, like you have to do it NOW or you will burst, stop. Take a breath. Take your time. Consider that it might be your instinctive reactions, not the situation itself, that are creating the sense of urgency.
IT MAY HELP to remember that with Mars retrograde right now, we are meant to be going inward to discover our true motivations. Certain obstacles may be in the way specifically to give us the time to reconsider where we are going, and why. We are also learning not to base our well-being on whether everything goes according to plan, nor on whether we feel our individual desires are being met.
One of the take-away lessons of this Mars-Saturn square is that our well-being need not be controlled by external events. Another learning is that the fulfillment of our desires may not depend on the manifestations we once thought were essential to our well-being.
WE HAVE two Full Moons on the calendar for October. The first occurs this Thursday, October 1, at 2:05 p.m. PDT (9:05 p.m. GMT). The Moon will be at 09°08´ Aries, with the Sun at the same degree of Libra.
Emotional responses are always elevated around the time of a Full Moon; with this lunation in impatient Aries – and with Mars, the natural ruler of Aries, square Saturn – we can expect that feelings will be running hot, but will not necessarily be channeled maturely or to best advantage. Given that Mars is retrograde, the anger that is released now may be the result of impulses that have been repressed for quite a while, which means that the response can be out of proportion to current triggers.
BUT, this Full Moon also represents a major healing opportunity, with the Moon just two degrees away from Wounded Healer Chiron. If we find ourselves acting out of insecurity or fear – the shadow side of Chiron in Aries – we are being directed by the universe to take a break, to sit with the part of us that is feeling these emotions, and to hold it lovingly in our awareness while we tell it that we understand, and that we’re sorry it’s afraid.
This inner child work, when done purposefully – and out loud – has a healing effect deep within our psyches. It is a powerful way both to help heal a fearful part of our nature, and to strengthen a part of us that knows it is competent and able to handle any situation that might arise.
MARS is at the same degree as the dwarf planet Eris at the time of the Full Moon, with their exact conjunction occurring on Saturday. The alignment of these two warrior planets is highly energizing, especially for those who have felt ignored, disrespected, or victimized by the ones who appear to have power and control.
However, with both Mars and Eris currently retrograde, actions taken under this influence may not have the expected results. The advice once again is to take your time. If taking action, be sure you are inwardly composed and in alignment with your soul. Our soul speaks to us in a voice that is calm and calming, even if it is guiding us to take steps that require courage.
JUPITER AND PLUTO are exactly parallel by declination on Saturday. This is a similar energy to a conjunction, but calculated based on their distance from the ecliptic (celestial equator), instead of according to their zodiac degree. Some astrologers believe that the declination is the most potent type of alignment, so this event is another important factor this week.
When working together with a higher vibrational intent, Jupiter and Pluto can manifest as strong determination and will. They enhance our ability to align with our higher destiny and support a passionate commitment to what we believe in. But, when used without integrity, they can also result in excessive pride and self-righteousness, and a relentless drive for power. How we use this energy is up to each of us individually.
PLUTO stations direct in Capricorn next Sunday (October 4), which means that its transformational energies are heightened this week and next. Throughout this year, Pluto (with the help of Saturn and Jupiter) has been making it very clear which systems and structures do and do not work. It has also helped expose corruption in governments and social institutions. As the dwarf planet begins to move forward over the coming weeks, it will be taking us to the next level of transmutation.
With Pluto, it is always helpful to remember that it is the planet of both death and rebirth. Its process is aptly symbolized by the legendary Phoenix, which is reborn only after being consumed by fire. The disintegration phase is a necessary step, and requires that we release what has been so that we can embrace the new life that lies just ahead.
IF YOUR BIRTHDAY IS THIS WEEK:This year, it is especially important to notice where you do not give yourself equal rights, where you habitually deny your own needs or postpone your own agenda. Libra is highly motivated by the desire to help others feel welcome and supported, but can sometimes be less aware of its own needs. Chiron’s influence in your life this year asks you to pay attention to when your mouth is saying “yes” but your gut is saying “no.” Give yourself the freedom and space to get in touch with what you really feel and think. Make the commitment to be as kind to yourself as you usually are to others. (Solar Return Sun square Pallas Athene, opposite Chiron, quincunx Uranus)
