NEW Audio Version (21-min/mp3)
of Kelly’s Weekly Forecast

NOTE from Kelly ~ Only you following my blog or on my emailing list will receive this audio link so I’d love for you to share with others. I will post it here on my blog and on the KarmicTools YouTube Channel (please subscribe there) and eventually as a Weekly Podcast on iTunes. I welcome your feedback and suggestions & encourage you to download the mp3 to your favorite device. I am so grateful for YOU, my Power Circle Community that’s been going strong since 1999!!

6/18 ~ Neptune Retrogrades @16* PISCES:
Where the Moon represents the individual womb energy, Neptune represents the collective womb experience on a much higher level. So as a whole, we are all returning to the womb at this time, essentially preparing for (yet another) rebirth. It’s not going to be as tangible as some would prefer, from Neptune comes all things formless but very, very real – subconscious, dreams, magic, music, art, etc. While the ‘womb’ was the Source of nourishment & protection at one time, we annually renew that connection through Neptune Retro. It’s time to check in on the relationship between your Spirit and your Human form. Every year, we are supported to renew that which supports us on a spiritual level. It is where you need to return periodically for strength, nourishment & wisdom. The more regularly you are able to do this, the stronger the connection to your Spirit and true Purpose. 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 and remind you that you are an Eternal Spirit in a Temporary Form. 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 on to the boundaries of a false sense of security. Where you might pursue your dreams & visions when it’s Direct, when it’s Retrograding, be creative, read, write, sing, dance – in private – for your own pure joy & delight, as well as for cleansing, releasing purposes. In addition to dreaming for the community, dream for your deepest SoulSelf as well. Connect to that original intent; that original person you were born to be, before you were imprinted by your family, culture or environment. Original Intent. When you can over the next 5-months, take some time to get back to your Center and renew your connection to Great Spirit.
*Neptune is a collective planet, which means that all those born in a 14-year period have Neptune in the same Sign and will share this *spiritual connection*. Jamie of PandoraAstrology.com calls it the ‘shared dream’ of each generation and has a fantastic, short article on the generations HERE.

6/19 ~ Mercury (learning & mind) ~trine~ Jupiter (education & consciousness):
This energy is great for expanding your mind, learning something new or taking a class. It’s time to plan for the future and start getting organized. However, you may feel less disciplined and more creative, which is fine in the beginning, but eventually focus & discipline will have to be engaged to ground your new ideas, thoughts or concepts. You have to ask your Self, ‘How bad do you want it?’ If you are self-aware, awake & alert, you will be able to see (and seize) the opportunities as they present themselves. It may ‘appear’ to be luck, but it’s really more that you were in alignment with the Cosmos, present & positive, and ultimately, able to trust & follow your own instincts. Practice, there is no perfection. Being optimistic & looking for opportunity in every experience will magnetize the positive and naturally repel the negative, leading right to where you want to be! Take advantage of this good energy to connect to whatever it is you are trying to create in your life at this time.

6/20 ~ Mercury (ideas) ~trine~ Neptune (dreams):
This energy activates your creative process & your 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 must, then have only higher level people around you so that you can maintain the mystical, creative vibe this energy is best for.

6/21 ~ Venus (values & priorities) ~oppose~ Mars (purpose & desire):
This energy brings a balance & integration of your inner masculine & feminine energies. Your inner masculine is supposed to negotiate on your behalf, get your ideas in the world & maintain good boundaries, while your inner feminine is a guiding force that creates space to contain & nurture life and your creative babies. Because it is an opposition, it’s time to check in with your SoulSelf to make sure you’re not swinging between extremes, or trying to force issues (masculine) rather than being open & receptive and going with the flow (feminine). Of course Venus & Mars together, brings relationships into the light, forcing issues of balance & integration within your relationships as well. Remember, as you change, others must change or go away. As you integrate more balance within you, maintaining balance with others becomes almost effortless. Also, if sexuality is an aspect of your relationship, then that too will undergo a balancing/re-balancing of sorts with this activation. Rather than project onto another, ask your Self some questions regarding your true desires and your true values. What is closest to your heart and fires you up from within, with no props, people or payments necessary?

6/21 ~ Summer Solstice:
This is the MidPoint in the year, bringing another Turn of the Wheel, the peak power of the Light before it surrenders, moving toward completion of that which was seeded at Winter Solstice. Permanently opposite each other, eternally balancing and re-balancing … integrating and re-integrating the *LIFE*DEATH*LIFE CYCLE ~ … This Sacred Season represents the time of year we should focus on the balance and integration of our natural extremes & innate dualities: Light/Dark ~ Yin/Yang ~ Feminine/Masculine ~ Inner/Outer ~ Cancer/Capricorn. While Winter is a time of rest, replenishment and rejuvenation, Summer is the time of pouring forth, emptying out and fully birthing/releasing your creations (or whatever you’ve done with your creative energy thus far this year). This is the MidPoint of the Solar Year, a point of *culmination & choice* ~ a time to count your blessings, assess your creations, gather power, and access the courage (Sun) to move forward. This is a balance of your outer world (Capricorn) and your inner world (Cancer) with emphasis on the Sacred Space where you fortify and replenish (Cancer) so you are able to contribute something significant (Capricorn). Be creative and operate from heart-center as you move through this Sacred Season, release what needs to be released and fertilize the next phase of the annual cycle. SUMMER Solstice is time to celebrate the primal creative Force, the mother-of-all-mothers, Mother Earth by acknowledging the blessed *Container, Nurturer and Protector* that She is for ALL Life on this planet. Connect to and honor your own instinctual nature at this time. And be mindful of the nutrient you take into your body, mind, spirit and space. Summer is the Sacred Season of *Maximum Light* ~ so be passionate and be present!!
You’re Invited to Join our Solstice Celebration 2018!!
It will be held on TUE/June 26th @5pm (eastern)-
– not on the actual Solstice 6/21.

6/23 ~ Sun (source & essential Self) ~sextile~ Uranus (freedom & individuality):
This activation will help you access a deeper sense of authenticity as everyday routine events may be more enlightening than usual this week. Anytime Uranus is involved ‘ah-ha moments’ are available, those sudden inspirations or the surprising clarity that changes everything, that is the energy bubbling near the surface at this time, which you need only invite it in (to your conscious mind to be useful). Eventually, you will have to ground these breakthroughs in some physical form, but this energy supports the exploration of possibilities. Where can you use a dose of freedom & liberation? This energy also promotes ‘authentic living’ – you won’t be able to be phony, nor tolerate it in others this week. Just remember that truth sometimes rattles those who would rather play ‘nice’ (keep up appearances/status quo) than face the facts, so watch out for rebelliousness, if not in you then in others. This is not a disruptive energy, except to those who resist change. Don’t fight it – embrace it! Change is good, it means you are growing!

6/23 ~ Mercury (communication & self-expression) ~oppose~ Pluto (purification & transformation):
*NOTE* I recommend reviewing Jan 24, 2018 POST, when Mercury initiated with Pluto. This was a tremendous recalibration of your thinking and a lot of what I said then, applies now. However, this current activation (6/23) is about 5-months later, when you’ve had time to integrate or adjust to what was revealed back then. This opposition is between your ideas, thoughts & concepts and your unconscious drives, and supports some deep-digging into the power of your own mind & thoughts. How has your thinking shaped your choices or completely transformed over the last 6-months? Are you still operating from an old paradigm of thought? Any opposition is a chance for true integration and we will always have to work at balancing our conscious and unconscious thinking as it affects our day-to-day choices. This could be a good time to consult with a trusted advisor or wise friend to clarify what is coming into your conscious awareness about your own self-sabotaging ideas, thoughts or concepts. This activation supports pulling it out by the root. Often, we address the symptoms rather than the true cause of our discomfort. Pluto won’t allow that. It’s time to go deeper and recognize your own power, the power of your Soul & your mind, and find that middle ground that allows you peace within and effectiveness without (in the world).

June 10 – 16, 2018: Weekly Forecast + Special Offer

6/13 ~ GEMINI Super/New Moon:
This is the first of 3-super NEW moons coming in. You may be more aware of Super FULL Moons because we can see them, but with a Super NEW Moon, the pull is just as strong, close and in alignment with Earth, but it is INVISIBLE (though I’ve noticed Sunset is visibly larger & closer). This lends even more potency to your intention-setting or seed-planting for the next three New Moons! Plus, 2-of-3 are Eclipses, so endings, new beginnings & change are all in the air this summer. It’s best to co-create consciously with any lunar cycle, otherwise it can feel like you’re at the mercy of the overwhelm going on in the collective. I love Darkstar Astrology/Marina’s New Moon Meaning (see full post HERE):

New Moons tend to make us want to plant new seeds and start afresh. We are essentially working blind, however, without the illumination of the Sun’s wisdom. With a New Moon, we are working 100% on our instincts, so any decisions made at this time will be from habitual drives and infantile cravings which may not be in our best interests. We should listen to our body.

The more we tune into our guts, the more we can tell the difference between a wounded ancestor who is crying out for attention and a genuine gut-feeling that is one’s trusted intuition. Otherwise, discernment is needed, because the guidance of the Sun (the light of truth) is missing at the New Moon and one may easily be hoodwinked.

A new moon can work powerful manifestation magic because the Moon is furthest from the earth and this frees the imagination from material limits. Thought-seeds planted at the New Moon will grow, so be careful what you wish for! A Solar Eclipse is like a really powerful reboot. The blinding light of the Sun is blocked for just enough time to get a new perspective. It is mind-altering and refreshing, but it can turn your world upside down too.

This GEMINI Super/New Moon can activate some radically NEW ways of thinking, learning & expressing. How we process info and what we allow IN (into our individual field of resonance). Now that ‘the collective Field’ is Infinitely Open, you are encouraged to fortify & rely on your own filters, boundaries & systems for living. It is time to live your own Truth, within the context of the larger, collective Truth. Gemini always activates the lesson of CHOICE, and now that we have so many choices, some more than others, we have to have a way of making the best choices for Self. The way to do that is to strengthen & fortify the *Head/Heart* Connection: allow the Head to present the variety of choices and the possibilities therein, then proceed to the Heart to sign off on what *FEELS* True & Right for You, personally. Anything good for you, is usually good for ALL so think with your Heart! And set intentions for a new level of learning, awareness & energetic exchange with others going forward.

6/13 ~ Mercury (your lower mind) ~sextile~ Uranus (your Higher Mind):
This energy says, it’s time to go with the flow – “new and different” being the flow. It wants to shake it up a bit – in a good way. However, if you feel like new and different is more like chaos and disruption, then you need to reflect and see if you aren’t being too rigid. Unwillingness to go with the (new) flow will make this energy harder to handle. This is also a good time to try to resolve any old issues or challenges – they are not going away without resolution and conscious release. Perhaps you’ve been trying the same thing over and over and it’s time to try something NEW – now is the time new ideas can/will come to you. Pay attention! Try to be open and receptive to unusual things, events or ideas and allow room for spontaneity. You may think you are doing one thing and look up and being doing something completely different – be open to exploring the new path!

6/14 ~ Venus (finances & relationships) ~square~ Uranus (sudden change):
This is a test to grow that you cannot plan for. Venus rules your values & priorities and an activation with Uranus signifies something sudden and seemingly out-of-the-blue. Of course, this isn’t true, but it can feel that way. The truth is, it is time to do something “different” where your love, finances or relationships are concerned. Making a conscious effort to do things in a completely new way will be rewarded with a lesson and a blessing you would’ve never considered. Due to new revelations happening within you, the immediate response will come from those around and closest to you. If you’re in relationships (personal or professional) that have reached a point where they have to change or end, this is a good time to try to discuss it openly and with as much detachment & objectivity as possible.

6/15 ~ Mercury (ideas, thoughts & concepts) ~oppose~ Saturn (reality & physical limitations):
Here the opposition is between your thoughts and your reality or current responsibilities. It’s also about your mental and physical getting integrated on some level. Are you working too hard, causing mental or physical exhaustion? Are you too stuck in idea-mode, delaying actions and actual commitments? It’s time to take a realistic look at your life to see where you could change your mind and your reality would follow. You may find yourself asking what your truth and purpose really are or you may be concerned about how to provide for your very basic, essential needs and why you have been constantly limited in that way. Everything can seem bleak and depressing but really it is just the Universe’s way of getting your attention and helping you to focus on what really matters. You’re being pushed to think of new ways in order to function on a practical level. You may feel like leaving a mate or partner at this time, but it’s not really the best time to actually act on this impulse. Wait until this energy passes and give your Self some time to clear that negative thinking that is actually coloring your judgment at this time. If you feel this way in another week or two then begin to plan releasing this person in the healthiest, most compassionate possible way so as not to create more karma YOU will have to deal with later. What this energy is good for is giving you the ability to see what is wrong and connect to a positive, realistic way of creating change for the better. If you are still unsure about what direction to take, this energy supports consulting a person you respect, usually someone older and/or more experienced, for guidance and support.

6/5 ~ Mercury (communication & self-expression) ~conjunct~ Sun (core essential Self):
This energy will compel you to express yourself on many levels. Communication will be a focus, just make sure it is reciprocated. You will have access to some powerful energy that can (and probably will) make quite an impression on others (if you need to). This is a good time to travel if possible too. However, if not physically, then mentally and certainly within your own area, you will take in more information per square inch than usual. Pay attention! You may even gain the much-deserved recognition from others that you have worked so hard for.

6/5 ~ Venus (relationships & resources) ~oppose~ Pluto (purification & transformation):
Classic opposition: anything with Venus is usually softened, while anything with Pluto is always intensified, and the opposition automatically brings up the push-pull between these two. You are encouraged to tune into your own heart and then you can trust what is rising from your own depths. Also, any opposition gives you a look back at your starting point, so you have more clear vision than you may be giving your Self credit for. Either way, this energy intensifies experiences where your relationships & resources are concerned. If you have focused on love, to the exclusion of money, then your finances will probably come up at this time for a rebalancing of sorts. If you’ve been focused on money, to the exclusion of supportive relationships, then that may be your focus. The bottom line is your true values are up for a purification of sorts. What/Who is really, truly important to you? How do you spend your resources of time, energy & money? What/Who are your real priorities right now? Often, we operate completely unconsciously (Pluto), being driven by deeper forces than we can fully understand. And periodically, we must allow them to come up/out so we can distill or release them so they become compost rather than toxic. Since you may feel ‘compulsive’ in some way, you may as well use that energy to make a deeper commitment to getting to the root or source of any imbalance rather than let it take you away to feed some unidentifiable famine in your life. Often, this activation tends to make you uncontrollably drawn to someone you know is not good for you, which can only result in problems. This energy provokes manipulation, jealousy, guilt and other negative emotions that always come when you are trying to maintain something that wasn’t meant to be in the first place. Again, don’t try to force YOUR will, it can only lead to a broken heart in the end. If you are already in an intense relationship, beware of subconscious impulses, hidden resentments, unexpressed anger or frustration. Expressing it at this time can be helpful if you present your concerns in a constructive way, however, you will have to be personally strong and vigilant in monitoring your own emotions in order to do that. Ultimately, if change needs to happen in your relationship, this will be the catalyst. This energy is only “bad” if you are unwilling to get to the real root or source of the given conflict. Otherwise, it is like a storm that clears the air and makes everything grow better.

6/6 ~ Mercury (communication) ~square~ Neptune (dissolution):
This is a mixed blessing energy. On one hand, it’s good for spiritual study and giving your dreams a little energy (if your schedule permits). On the other hand, it makes for major miscommunications between people. Try to think before speaking, because if it’s possible to misunderstand or not ‘get it’ altogether, it will happen this week. Be careful not to let “longing” for your dreams to come true, distort your judgment and mislead you into believing the illusion. With this energy, some people will deliberately deceive and others have to be careful not to be misled. Stick to the facts or stay quiet, for now. You may even be inclined to withhold information to avoid a confrontation – don’t do it. Communicate with your Self and God today, otherwise plan to be very clear in explaining yourself to others (humans) so there are no misunderstandings.

6/7 ~ 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.

Mars Retrograde 2018: Freedom, Responsibility + You!

Mars Retrograde 2018
Freedom, Responsibility & YOU!

Mars Enters Capricorn (3/27)
Mars Enters Aquarius (5/15) and Retrogrades (6/26)
ReEnters Capricorn (8/12) and Direct (8/27)
ReEnters Aquarius (9/10) until Enters Pisces (11/15)

Mars Retrograde is a special occasion and can be full of surprises. The last time it happened was in 2016, when it crossed between Scorpio & Sagittarius (Water & Fire). This time, it is happening in Capricorn & Aquarius (Earth & Air). MarchNov 2018, Mars is in a zone of your chart, rewiring your desire nature and inner sacred masculine. Whether male or female, we all have to hold good boundaries, negotiate on our own behalf and get our ideas out into the world. You can consciously co-create with this personal planet every two years when it gets a potent upgrade.

Mars represents who you are, what you want, what you deeply desire & what you are passionate about. It will spend almost 6-months (6-8 weeks is normal) moving over the last degrees of Capricorn and early degrees of Aquarius, activating your desires around freedom & responsibility. Wherever this falls in your chart would be where the action is, where the energy blockages & frustrations begin to indicate that Mars is moving in a different direction than usual. It only does this every 2-years or so and it is a delicious opportunity to reset our buttons around who you are and what you really want. The more fluid & adaptable (around your desires) that you can be these days, the better you’ll be able to integrate the inevitable changes being stirred up for everyone.

When Mars Retrogrades, it is the time to do the Inner Self-Work – to redefine what you really want and how you express the power & passion of Mars. It spends March-Nov 2018 in Capricorn/Aquarius so you may feel the Retrograde in that whatever direction you were heading in (over the last 2 years) may now be slowed or even reversed (temporarily at least). Things that were easy may seem challenging and things that used to be challenging may now become easier or simplified. Remember, all delays & detours are not necessarily “bad”. Pay attention to the aspects of your approach to acquiring what you desire, as well as the motivations behind your desires. Always make the self-inquiry, ask yourself what you want and why you want it. The Reboot, Revision, Recalibration of Mars and your desire nature is a regular 2-year “maintenance process”. Your heart’s desires change & evolve over time, so this is your opportunity to check in and tweak things accordingly.

You may initially feel a drop in your drive and focus or perhaps just a shift in direction. This could happen for the entire Retrograde period, however, most of us have to continue forward regardless of what the planets are up to ; -) The best use of this energy is to understand that the purpose is to jolt you from the comfort zone you’ve been resting in for two years (or more) and alert you to a cycle renewing. What disruption did you experience in 2016, during Mars last retro in Scorpio/Sag? Well, this is another time where the energy is shifting in a powerful way. It could also be a wake-up call regarding what you are or are not passionate enough about. There is likely some area of your life that you have not given enough open, direct, powerful energy to and it is demanding your attention now.

Don’t fight the Retrograde process and since Mars energy is all about forward movement, that can be the challenging part for some. Resist the temptation to explode or act for the sake of action but rather quietly observe, then take decisive action (Mars) which serves your Highest good. Remember, channel your rage (paralyzes) in to outrage (mobilizes) and the best revenge is often success! Often, Mars Retrograde brings whatever you’ve suppressed, ignored or avoided to the surface to be dealt with – it won’t be denied. Be prepared to dig deep within, cleansing and clearing the old Self, and thus the old responsibilities, which ought to open up new freedoms for you as well.

We get almost 8-months to review what we are truly passionate about & committed to, what’s really worth doing and how much we actually love ourselves. When Mars once again goes forward, be prepared to act boldly! Retrogrades are about adjustment – this is a second chance to get it “right”. Review, revise – go back there’s something you missed. In the current turbulent times, it is vital that we stay focused on what truly matters and use our powerful Martian energy to create an authentic life based on love and not illusions, delusions or fear. For naturally fiery natures, you may want to consciously direct this passionate & potent energy into a cause or dear project. For those of you who are not naturally fiery, this energy lends strength & courage to step in to your authentic Self, while lending the necessary energy to facilitate change.

Either way, all should be tuned-in for the upcoming Review (June 26 – Aug 27, 2018) when action in the world will slow ever-so slightly, nudging you to turn your personal Mars energy toward the internal concerns of who you are and what you want as an individual. It’s all very personal. As with all Retrogrades, the energy that is normally outwardly expressed becomes more inner directed. Mars is the planet of passion, action, sex, war & desire, among other things so here are some questions to consider.

Questions to Consider:
What do you desire at this time?
What do you passionately desire? Or have you lost your passion?
What are really passionate about?
Have you been “passionate” about anything lately?
What have you been actively pursuing in the world?
What gets you fired-up & inspired? What makes you angry?
Is your anger mobilizing (outrage) or paralyzing (rage) for you?
What are you willing to get started/initiate?
What are you willing to honor, defend, protect and courageously, stand up for?

Good Focus & Area of Review for
Mars Retro in *Capricorn/Aquarius*

Mars in Capricorn:
This is the time to get very serious about your responsibilities, obligations, work, career, status & reputation. There is energy and endurance available when Mars is in Capricorn that drives you toward accomplishing something you deeply desire. You have access to focus, determination & drive so you may work better alone at this time. By the same token, what you create may be so needed that you are drawn into working with others. Either way, some form of recognition for your choices & actions may also happen at this time. It is time to be practical and get organized, avoid petty distractions. This can be a very creative time as you will feel more dedicated and tend to be more disciplined than usual. This energy is as challenging as it is powerful and tends to make or break some people. It is time to take a serious inventory of Self. Is there more work to be done? What have you mastered and need to share with the world? What are you willing to be responsible for?

Mars in Aquarius:
This is the time to think outside the box, find creative solutions, take alternative paths and integrate some radical change (in this House/Area of Life). This is a great time for connecting to your own unique brilliance, so if you overflow with new ideas, be sure to take notes so that when time permits, you can actually take action toward them! The passion behind your ideas will push things along, getting you closer to success. Just keep in mind that ‘competition is the inevitable companion of success’ so you may also have an idea that inspires others. You will move fast, think fast & make decisions on the spot (best to pump your breaks if Mars is Retro here). When you follow your intuition, you strengthen it, and even when not quite on the mark – you will always learn something that gets you closer to your goal. You may experiment a lot during this phase, improvise, try everything a new & different way just to see if there is a better way. Any ideas begun at this time, may soon benefit humanity in some way so be innovative and initiate something new!

5/29 ~ SAGITTARIUS Full Moon:
This month supports process & assimilation exercises. What have you learned or discovered? that you now need to integrate as a true knowing & earned wisdom. If you do not integrate the changes you’ve been through, the choices you’ve made, the knowledge you’ve learned & the wisdom you’ve earned, then they never convert from ideas-to-bricks in the Base that supports you (of your own creation). Many will stay in ‘overwhelm’ or go even deeper at this point because this much information, that does NOT get filed or deleted, WILL overwhelm the system. Gemini time is a good time to review & explore the ideas, concepts & perceptions that have been revealed over the last 3-6-9-12 months. It’s good to note that next month (Cancer) the ‘fundamentals’ will be UP again. You are supported to review which of the ideas that come up now will nourish, support & protect you going forward. Choose ideas that have life & vitality, choose ideas that *feel* right from your Heart-Center, choose ideas that expand your life, rather than limit it. Simplify, Prioritize & RE-Allocate Your Energy & Resources.

The SAG Full Moon is a spectacular opportunity to release anything that no longer reflects your personal *Truth & Story*, which ultimately contributes to the larger social/collective Story. As we activate our new thought patterns and recognize the incredibly new path we are on, the Sag Full Moon is going to shine a light on that which is no longer true (before it will reveal any new Truth). This Full Moon is a Sacred Opportunity to recalibrate your belief system, based on the new beginning you’d like to initiate by the Gemini Super/New Moon (6/13). What is more or less of a priority? and can be released so that something of greater value can be Lived ~ Experienced ~ Expressed! How has your thinking been liberated by a broader perspective? Based on this broader perspective, what is the anchor or cornerstone, which supports & encourages you? What is worn-out and ready to be released? Give it to Mama Moon!

6/1 ~ Mercury (your voice) ~trine~ Mars (your actions):
This is a great alignment of your Thoughts & Actions. Clarity is effortless and you can follow your instincts. Be mindful of the Element too ~ in this case (6.1.2018), AIR ~ this is an awakening or breath of much-needed fresh air opening you to new ways of thinking & perceiving your world. It is a great energy which gives you the courage to think things through and it activates your ability for strategic problem-solving if/when necessary. You will have direct access your authentic, inner voice so if you need/want an expressive outlet, you will likely find one. It’s also a great energy for small gatherings for spiritual, creative and/or intellectual exchange. Enjoy it! Just keep in mind your own Elemental Balance as well and how you naturally work with AIR in your life.

6/1 ~ Venus (socialize) ~trine~ Jupiter (optimism & travel):
This is usually a pleasant energy, although short lived. This is a good time to enjoy some kind of social activity. No pressure – just easy, laid-back fun. It can make you prone to laziness or excess, but only if you’re already prone to it. Otherwise, if you are typically busy and constantly on the go, this energy gives you permission to kick back a little and release the usual pressures to produce. Take some time out to “smell the roses” or at least reflect on all that you have accomplished and give your Self due credit for coming this far. This is a good time to travel, go on a vacation or take a short trip. This energy tends to bring forth earned blessings. Take a moment to give thanks to the powers that be which brought you to this point!

6/2 ~ Venus (relationships) ~trine~ Neptune (vision):
This is a very supportive energy for dreaming your world into being! Allow your imagination some latitude to wander and see where it leads. You may be very connected to others and what they are going through, so keep good boundaries, as you would any time you’re dealing with Neptune. I encourage you to stay grounded even if you have a very spiritual encounter with another human, friend, family or lover, just keep in mind that only time will tell if it is Neptune playing tricks on you or if it is truly a spiritual connection.

May 20 – 26, 2018: Weekly Forecast

Join eMailing List ~ See Archives

Note from Kelly: After reviewing this week’s forecast, I felt compelled to offer my support to those of you seeking more clarity & direction over the next 4-6 weeks. If you scroll down to last week’s forecast, there are links to additional Readings + FREE Goodies but this is the type of week that can challenge you on very deep levels to grow in a new direction that is often difficult to do alone, asleep or with relatives. A neutral party can be invaluable for filtering the messages that really apply to you personally. Then I realized that if you’re not on my main mailing list, you may not know that May always brings the *MidPoint* between Spring Equinox and Summer Solstice. It’s a 6-week period that you can dedicate to tuning-in, harmonizing & synchronizing your rhythm with Nature’s rhythm. Now is the time to connect with your body & physical environment. Invite a conscious collaboration with the Elementals, Nature Spirits, Devas and the Plant Kingdom to say thank you and honor their teachings & sacrifices. During this time every year, I ask for my Animal Guides & Guidance via the Crossing Borders Reading ~ see May 2018 HERE -or- Order HERE ($25/8-pg pdf) for yourself or a friend! Or if you’d like more personal, individual support, eMail me directly.

5/22 ~ Mercury (expression) ~sextile~ Neptune (dreams):
This is a great energy for imagination, consciousness & intuition, however, keeping a good filter to distinguish between your own perceptions and what you are picking up from those around you will be crucial to success. Your mind is on a different channel than usual and you may have to rely on other senses, like your feelings or intuitive hunches. You may be very perceptive, picking up on the thoughts & feelings of others, which if/when you are clear (and your filters are working properly) will yield some surprising revelations about where their consciousness is, at this time (for better or worse) and reflect an aspect of your own you may not have been aware of. Try to avoid work that requires any attention to detail. Allow your creativity to flow freely without censoring what comes through you at this time. You can organize it later. This is the energy to explore, create and free-flow!

5/23 ~ Mercury (thinking) ~oppose~ Jupiter (learning):
Any opposition requires us to work with two distinct energies and get them to work together for the good of all involved. It is also a MidPoint which allows you that 180* view from the other side of your starting point (roughly 6-months ago). Mercury & Jupiter are working out the push-pull within you between your Mind & Consciousness, between your lower level (human) Thinking & your higher level (spirit) Beliefs, between your Thoughts & Imagination, between the Tedious Details and the Grand Vision. Because of all this, it would be tremendously beneficial to play amongst a group of like-hearted souls with varying points of view, mavericks who follow their intuition, as well as humble healers who also buck status quo by following their intuitive knowing within, something we all have the capacity for. This is great for what I call *Jam Sessions*, when my colleagues & I get together to discuss our ideas & insights about our professional goals, something like that is a great use of this energy: plan, strategize, discuss with others, get input & feedback, bounce ideas around and be open & receptive to others’ points of view (they may think of something you didn’t). Make sure it is a Circle, where all opinions are valued even if not shared. This is a good one for learning something new and looking at things from another angle, completely.

5/23 ~ 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.

5/25 ~ Jupiter (Belief System, Laws & Religion) ~trine~ Neptune (Faith, Mysticism & Spirituality):   (2 of 3: 12/2 ~ 5.25.2018 ~ 8/19)
These two getting together stimulates some pretty large concepts that are deeper and broader than most care to go. However, for my dreamers & faith-keepers, this one is for YOU! For you doubter-doom ‘n gloom-ers, this one is for you too because it can give you the much needed and overdue dose of *magic* you are not usually open & receptive to. These two like to expand our consciousness and what we believe to be possible for ourselves, eachother and the planet. This is the activation to work with when you’re ready to deepen your dedication to a spiritual practice, and bring more *Magic & Spirit* into all that you do. It’s a great time to practice communing with your Angels, Ancestors & Animal Spirit Guides. I should add that this ease & grace that is being extended at this time (2017-2018) leads to 2019 when they will challenge eachother (and the rest of us) and probably poke holes in some of the connections you make at this time. My advice is to stay present, when doing spiritual, mystical things, be fully conscious and present. When doing physical, reality things, be fully conscious and physically present. Don’t try to do both at the same time ; -) and be ready to question what you believe at that time. The only other thing is of course, illusion/delusion with these two. One can make people overly optimistic, over-inflated & full of hot air and the other can make people downright crazy, delusional & completely disconnected from reality. It’s okay to expect miracles, but it is also okay to follow your true inner guidance if it prompts you to question things that may seem too good to be true.
Other times & trines for a point of reference:
Trine Keywords = Blessings – Ease & Grace – Trinity – Cooperation
Now – 2017-18 in Scorpio/Pisces
Last – 7.17.2013 in Cancer/Pisces and before that 2004-05 in Libra/Aquarius
Next – 7.20.2026 in Leo/Aries

5/25 ~ Mercury (ideas, thoughts & concepts) ~trine~ Pluto (rebirth & transformation):
This activation makes any deep-delving within easier and more fruitful. It encourages you to ask the deeper questions, clarify your deeper feelings and trust your intuitive gut feelings that are telling you something has to die so some other aspect of your consciousness can live. You will want to explore your inner Self, sort through recently gathered information and try to understand better what your natural process really is. It is best to be alone for such research. Take a day or a weekend and grab your most powerful books & music and get somewhere beautiful if you can, if not, then your bedroom will do just as well – and dig deep! You are finally ready for the deeper truth, and you will be transformed by what you learn. If you must communicate with others, plan on that being deep as well, so best to talk to a trusted advisor or wise elder. Nothing superficial today. The only warning with this energy is not to become obsessive about one particular idea – and certainly don’t try to force any ideas on others. If you feel the deep need to focus on one particular thing, that is fine but try to keep some perspective or write down all your revelations so you can reflect on them at a later time when you can be more objective and prioritize better.

5/26 ~ Venus (relationships & resources) ~oppose~ Saturn (physical limits & reality):
Where Sun opposite Saturn has you focused squarely on you, Venus opposite Saturn often illuminates the relationships you’ve magnetized (or repelled) in your life. It is here that I also like to remind folks how valuable midpoints can be as they give you a direct look back at your starting point, which offers unbelievable clarity about what you may be dealing with in the present moment. There is a push-pull between your true values and the current reality of your relationships & your resources. You may find yourself questioning what (and who) is or is no longer of value or important to you. Or you may find yourself facing some hard and unavoidable personal truths. Do not feel sorry for yourself and do not take it out on others. It is time to take responsibility for making new choices here & now today, looking back will only trip you up. Challenges may center around commitments you’ve made out of obligation and/or a sense of duty, rather than because you actually wanted to contribute or collaborate. You can use this energy & activation to align your reality with the values of your heart. Do not allow the anxiety associated with change to keep you from making some important decisions at this time. If you give in to your fears, you could get caught up in martyrdom and victim consciousness. Deciding what you want, committing to the work it will take to manifest your vision and getting to work! Saturn rewards deepened dedication & focus with tangible results. You won’t regret it.

May 13 – 19, 2018: Weekly Forecast

Join eMailing List ~ See Archives

5/13 ~ Mercury (your thinking) ~conjunct~ Uranus (the Awakener):
It is said that this energy depends on your “normal mental speed” which is not the same as intelligence. If you are naturally quick mentally, then you will be downloading more than usual during this initiation. Uranus acts as a Lightning Rod that strikes and briefly illuminates an area of your life, in this case, in the last degrees of Aries, simultaneously ending & beginning a whole new era, which will bring a new, clean slate for one and all. Ah-ha moments will lead to more freedom & independence, but only to the degree that you can maintain them yourself. If you are in like-hearted circles, the conversations could be really stimulating, unlocking perceptions across the board. If you are not naturally quick mentally, then this will be helpful for you as you are more likely to experience awakenings & connections to your own intuition that help strengthen it within. The Shadow side to this energy is being over-sensitive & jumping to conclusions. Test & Ground your insights before hardwiring them into your Being in any way. An over-taxed nervous system is widely available from many different directions, so try to connect with Mother Earth often. Whatever gets zapped (loosened) can thus be moved to the compost pile. Whatever gets illuminated (becomes conscious) is to be investigated further for merit but is valuable nonetheless. Keep records of ah-ha moments as you won’t be able to immediately act on all of them at the same time and, those you cannot (at this time) often turn into nuggets of gold in your future.

5/15 ~ Uranus Enters Taurus (until 2026):
This is a once-in-84 year occurrence! And it still has to retrograde back ‘n forth over the last 2-degrees of Aries and first 2-degrees of Taurus in order to complete the ‘Crossing Borders’ that we are already feeling, the whole world will feel by Spring 2019. Uranus is a collective planet and so affects many people and takes 7-8 years to accomplish its mission in each sign. It will awaken the Taurus department of life (House) and stimulate any of your planets in Taurus/Scorpio or Leo/Aquarius (by default). Also, I’d say here & now is a good time to reflect on the ‘liberating ordeal’ you just went through over the last 8-years as it stimulated your Aries department. Once it is truly into Taurus, you can start to reap the benefits and integrate the recent, radical shifts that you’re Identity & Purpose have been through and the focus, and thus the lessons & blessings, will now shift to the values & priorities that support that newly awakened Emergent Self and how that works on the ground, in the body, on the Earth.

In other words, for individuals, those who have had their shake-up/disruption for the last 7-8 years activate a new Identity & Purpose (usually by dismantling the old one), the values & priorities are naturally going to have to shift to support that and when you change, things & people have to change or go away for there to be a vibrational match again. The electrical circuits of the body are being rewired and anything we feel, Mother feels and vice versa. Let’s use this introduction to a new energy to practice having an awareness that something new is emerging from within, as well as around us, and filter things through first the Body (does this feel right to me?), then the Spirit (what does my SoulSelf/Higher Self say this is when I rise above my situation and look at it from there?) and finally, through the Mind (putting pieces together in logical way if possible) with a final rinse through the Heart Filter to ensure authenticity! Uranus demands this in whatever sign it traverses.

My vision is that our technological breakthroughs will help, serve & support Mother Earth (All Life & the Body) rather than denigrate, violate & pillage her natural resources. Uranus awakens by shaking loose where we’ve grown rigid & crusty. It just spent 8-years awakening you to a new level of personal responsibility, in that, you cannot rely on outer structures to guide & protect you any longer. It’s time to be independent within the context of the collective. As it awakens in Taurus, there will be a radical shift in your value system to support the new independence. And freedom will be tied to your ability to shift your values accordingly. More soon …

5/16 ~ Mars (action) ~square~ Uranus (freedom):   (1 of 3: 5/16 ~ 8/1 ~ 9/18) 
This is the “Rebel” energy – what’s your “cause”? If you are clear about your own authentic Truth & Purpose, then this energy is refreshing & uplifting. You can acknowledge that change is necessary (and inevitable) and you can 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.

5/18 ~ Mercury (your thinking) ~trine~ Saturn (structure & organization):
This energy is good for deep thinking. You are sharp and your standards are high because you are in ‘strategy mode‘. This is a more solitary energy though, so communications with others may be hampered a bit because it is time for you to hold your own, at some new level. It’s time to focus on the details that hold the big dream together, all the little things that make the grand vision work. Some respect that attention to detail while others may consider it nit-picky but it is what the energy supports at this time so don’t worry if others don’t understand right now. By the same token, you may also feel a little overwhelmed by the many “little things” that cannot be denied or delayed and thus a sense of urgency to get it all done. Beware of a tendency toward pessimism, depression or overwhelm. Try to stay focused on all the blessings that you do have and all that you have accomplished instead of what’s still on the list of things to do (in life). This energy is not intended to make you feel bad about all the things left yet to do but encourage you to begin the necessary steps for manifesting your dreams. This energy just makes you focus on the practical side of manifesting. Clear the debris, and begin to lay a new, clean, solid foundation beneath your goals. Saturn gets you present to the necessary steps and Mercury helps you think clearly & choose wisely.

5/19 ~ Venus (relationships, love & money) ~sextile~ Uranus (clarity & inspiration):
This energy, thanks to Uranus, activates a certain spark of electricity in the air. New relationships will have an unusual aspect to them and old ones can break-to-realign in a positive, even fun way with this energy. No monotonous routine, humdrum people or boring collaborations with this one. Use it to access your unique genius and deep well of creativity and then share if you can, with other like-hearted Souls. Take advantage of this energy to tap into areas you may not have realized were available to you before. Keep it light & upbeat; socialize & enjoy the experience of different people or new activities. Keep in mind, however, any relationships begun this week may not be based on qualities needed for long term survival. It is more a time to enjoy the people and experiences that pass through at this time and accept this gift!
