karimic-tools-144 - 9/17 ~ Venus (love, finances & relationships) ~trine~ Uranus (freedom & liberation): This energy is likely to bring a little excitement into your life, one way or another. This is a good time to do something different, try something new & consciously put your Self in situations where you have to improvise & think on your feet...

 - 9/19 ~ Mercury (lower mind) ~oppose~ Neptune (Higher mind): This energy requires us to balance the Higher and lower mind. Some sensitive souls will feel bombarded by energies from all sides and it may feel like information-overload and very stressful. The best use of this transit is meditation - not making important decisions or commitments for a week or so...

9/22  ~ 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...

karimic-tools-144 - 9/12 ~ Venus (values & priorities) ~trine~ Saturn (stability & endurance): This is a smooth, easy energy that you can work with consciously and yield incredible, even tangible, results. It's a good time to define your terms where relationships are concerned because you are clear about your values & priorities...

 - 9/13 ~ Sun (essential Self) ~square~ Saturn (responsibility): With this energy, it is best to understand that you will have two distinct pulls within - obligation to others versus responsibility to Self. It's not nearly as bad as it feels, however, it does bring up something we all work really hard to balance to some degree or another - SELF & OTHERS...

 - 9/15 ~ Venus (relationships) ~sextile~ Jupiter (optimism): This energy expands your relationships, personal or professional, allowing you to gain traction in expressing the Highest vibration of this Union possible. In personal relationships, things are sociable, light & fun. In professional or public relationships, things can go more smoothly as folks are more relaxed and easy-going, upbeat and open to exchanging ideas & concepts...

9/16 ~ Mercury (thoughts) ~conjunct~ Mars (energy): The positive expression of this energy is that you can control your mind and direct it with passion, getting tangible results.

 - 9/9 ~ Sun  (core essential Self) ~trine~ Pluto (purification & transformation): This energy makes you want to get things done, by any means necessary and you may tend to come on a little strong - but it's all good.

solareclipse - It is not often that we have a truly one-of-a-kind experience in our life that we can be certain will never be repeated. I’ve just come back from Salem, Oregon (which was in the path of totality) to watch the recent solar eclipse. Feeling like I was participating in an art-happening created by Nature herself, words fail me in describing how truly mind-blowing it was. It felt like some sort of numinous religious experience that I will never forget for the rest of my life.

One of the main things that interests me about the eclipse is how different spiritual traditions have completely different “takes” on what it means. Some traditions feel that solar eclipses are a sacred spiritual revelation that can deepen our connection with the divine. Other traditions feel that, due to the darkness that falls over our planet as a result of the light of the sun being blocked by the moon, the eclipse is an open portal for darker energies (what ancient indigenous cultures refer to as “demons”) to come down to earth. From this latter perspective, instead of reveling in the celestial light (and dark) show, we are supposed to stay indoors and one-pointedly do prayers to protect us from these negative energies. I find myself wondering, which of these two mutually exclusive viewpoints is true?

For me, in encountering questions like this, it feels important to stay with my own experience, which was incredibly uplifting, inspiring and ecstatic.

karimic-tools-144 - 8/27 ~ Jupiter (Your Truth & Story) ~sextile~ Saturn (Your Reality & Personal Foundation): These two haven’t danced like this in 12-years and won’t again for 6-years. It’s an excellent activation to come on the heals of eclipse season too! So much has changed since 2003-04. What did you get going at that time? What were your measurable successes? How did your personal Story evolve because things in your Reality shifted during that time? Or – how did your Reality evolve because your personal Truth changed during that time? ...

 - 9/2 ~ Mars (courage & passion) ~trine~ Uranus (freedom & individuality): This is a powerful combo, however, it has to be integrated and consciously expressed to yield the best results, otherwise you may miss an opportunity for a major personal breakthrough. Mars gives you the courage and Uranus awakens new possibilities within. This is an easy alignment of your actions and your individual brilliance. You may even discover some new gift or talent that has been dormant for a while, but is now beginning to come to life...

karimic-tools-144 - 8/20 ~ Mars (your desire) ~sextile~ Jupiter (your Truth): This energy will help you figure out what your deepest desires and authentic Truth really are for you. If you are not sure, this expansion will illuminate the possibilities for you. This is a potent opportunity to take things to the next level...

8/21 ~ Sun (core identity) ~trine~ Uranus (individuality): This energy is wonderful for a little self-examination and taking action on your own behalf. Look at your habits, home situation, work or anything else that is important to you and look at how you've gotten to where you are...

8/22 ~ Mars (energy & drive) ~trine~ Saturn (stamina & patience): This is a delicious & potent combo! This is like a great Father/Son working on a project energy. The Son has all the muscle, energy & enthusiasm and the Father is the brilliant, steady man who directs that energy and teaches in every moment. Internally, this is your Inner Authority guiding your innate desire nature to the tangible results it so craves...

8/24 ~ Venus (love, 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...

8/26 ~ 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...

 - If the Sun is the king or leader, the Moon is the public. It’s also the foundational values of the nation — our national soul —that we must reclaim from the shadow. But, what does it all MEAN!?!

Even for astrology, that’s a lot of cosmic coincidence! (Or, what astrologers say amongst ourselves: “You can’t make this shit up!” Another thing all long-time astrologers know — the Cosmos has a sense of humor.)

Each one of these points in isolation might be seen as “no big deal” or “just coincidence.” But when the coincidences pile up like this, the chances of all of them happening concurrently become, well, astronomically high.

This eclipse is the cosmic reflection of what we already know: We are at a crossroads in American history.

If you are engaged in the world in any way, you know this is true. Everywhere, we are reaching tipping points. Globally, the climate is shifting. Technology is changing so fast, experts predict 40–60 million Americans may be working jobs that will no longer exist in a decade. Not to mention the profound paralysis of “us versus them” thinking on all levels of government and society.

Something has to give. By the ancient rules of astrology, the Great American Eclipse says the change begins NOW.

 - Solar Eclipses have fascinated people since the beginning of time, and is one of the only astrological events that most people stop and pay attention to.

Even though the cosmos is always putting on beautiful displays for us, a Solar Eclipse is definitely one that you cannot ignore, especially the upcoming Total Solar Eclipse, which will peak on August 21, 2017.

During a Total Solar Eclipse, the Sun, Moon and Earth will be in complete alignment. The three cosmic forces, the holy trinity of our Universe, will come together as one, almost like a grand reset that will help to bring about the start of a new cycle.

The cosmos is affecting us all of the time, but when something as profound and as grand as an Eclipse occurs, it is likely you are going to feel it on many levels.

karimic-tools-144 - 8/13 ~ 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 at this time, as you will be blessed by your past efforts. You are completely supported to structure your life in a whole new way...

 - 8/15 ~ 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...

 - 8/17 ~ 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 having some fun...

- A total solar eclipse will take place in the USA on August 21st, 2017 with maximum eclipse point at 14.40hrs or 2.40pm for Washington.

The total solar eclipse occurs when the Moon completely darkens the disk of the Sun.

On that date, people across the USA will see the Sun disappear behind the Moon, turning daylight into twilight, causing the temperature to drop rapidly and revealing massive streamers of light streaking through the sky around the silhouette of the Moon. On that day, America will fall under the path of a total solar eclipse.

The purpose of this article is to investigate from the point of view of the ancient Mesopotamian astrology and the ancient omen theory, what this eclipse will bring and cause to America and the world in a short and long terms.

karimic-tools-144 - 8/7 ~ AQUARIUS Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse: What have you become “too” attached to? And/or what have you become “too” detached from (and need to reconnect)? We have spent recent months navigating the Mutable energy of thought and ideas (Gemini), along with the Cardinal energy of action and choices (Cancer), whose theme continues but now the energy has become decidedly Fixed and it is time to anchor something … in your Heart (Leo)...

 - 8/10 ~ Mercury (thoughts) ~sextile~ Venus (art & beauty): This energy turns your thoughts and ideas toward how you feel, what inspires you with love and beauty. This is a great time to be particularly creative, or do something related to the arts...

 - 8/10 ~ Sun (core Self) ~sextile~ Jupiter (optimism): This energy is sometimes considered “lucky” but the success you achieve under this influence, is more likely due to a positive outlook and clear vision of who you are and what you want. Your life is expanding, your self-understanding is deepening and it will be easier to be around other people of higher consciousness...

 - 8/12 ~ 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...

 - 8/12 ~ Mercury Retro in VIRGO: Mercury rules how we think & express ourselves, how we gather & process information and our mental body in general (and much more). It pulls back to do a review 3-4 times per year, which I think is deliciously organic & perfect because when would we EVER give our minds a break if we weren’t forced to?...

pigeon during partial solar eclipse - Birds may go quiet, bats may fly around and pets may become uneasy, but it's difficult to predict exactly how non-human animals will react.

A total solar eclipse will soon sweep across the United States for the first time in 99 years, providing a rare spectacle for millions of people. Among the many human onlookers in the path of totality, however, will also be countless wild animals, pets and other creatures with a much looser grasp of what's happening.

Our own species was long confused about the nature of eclipses, but the experience must still be very weird for other animals, especially within the path of totality. This is likely a once-in-a-lifetime event for them, too, and while few scientific studies have thoroughly examined their reactions, there are many anecdotal reports of wildlife, farm animals and pets seemingly duped or bewildered by a solar eclipse.

 -  On August 21st, 2017, we will be experiencing one of the most powerful and significant total solar eclipses of our lifetime. Its path of totality goes right across the United States from coast to coast, starting from Oregon in the West to South Carolina in the East. This eclipse has been on the radar for both astronomers and astrologers for years and has been dubbed ‘The Great American Eclipse.’

Astrologically speaking, all eclipses have an effect on everybody on the planet, however, the location it travels over will experience it more potently. The effects of solar eclipses can start to be noticeable months prior and up to 6 months later. However, its influences and results have long term significance.This article is addressing its potential influence on geopolitical matters


This upcoming ‘Great American Eclipse’ is near the North Node in Leo and because it’s also a New Moon, it really emphasizes the forward energies of the North Node. The Lunar Eclipse that occurs prior on August 7th in Aquarius near the South Node also emphasizes the ‘past’ energies wanting to be shifted.
