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
(/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
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, along with
some guidance and direction.

Karmic Tools ~ Weekly Forecast: Nov 7 – 20, 2010

November 7 – 13, 2010 / NO TRANSITS THIS WEEK! / But other major movements continue.

November 14 – 20, 2010

11/15 ~ Mars (action) ~sextile~ Saturn (endurance):

This
energy gives you a tremendous power booster to your drive to create
stability, as you define it. You will WANT to do the work, starting with
a plan that is carefully thought out and then methodically carried out.
Plan and Do! Not just one or the other – Both! The rewards for your
hard work, the return on your investment will reflect what energy you
have put in to stabilizing your life. This energy should NOT be
restrained but consciously directed. Excessive restriction (Saturn) may
cause an explosion (Mars) down the line, whereas a sold base (Saturn)
contains the fire (Mars) so it becomes useful as well as beautiful.

11/15 ~ Sun (core-Self) ~trine~ Jupiter (expansion):

You
should take advantage of this good energy to connect to something
useful – get something solid accomplished this week after the emotional
roller coaster! You may feel like your energy is low and you just want
to veg-out and not think about ANYTHING, but that would be a total waste
of some positive, useful energy that you could actually access and use
to connect to your current goals and make some headway even. Don’t sleep
through this! It is an enthusiastic, optimistic energy that will open
doors for you, depending on your attitude. It will allow you to see the
big picture and the next necessary step toward your goal at this time.
You have probably already laid some groundwork, this energy will give
you a boost in the right direction – take advantage of it! Use the
insights you gained earlier in the week with some of the deeper issues
that arose and stand back and see the Divine Order in your life – see
how all the pieces fit together to make something greater than what was
there before. Sometimes it’s necessary to have emotional upheavals to
bring stuff to the surface and purge it. You must clear the debris in
order to create a solid foundation under your dreams.

11/17 ~ Mercury (communication) ~sextile~ Saturn (responsibility):

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

11/18 ~ Sun (core identity) ~square~ Neptune (dissolution):

Your
energy may be lower than usual today. This is the Universe’s way of
slowing you down, momentarily. Take it easy and put off anything that
can be put off. You may feel pessimistic, however, it will pass. In the
meantime, try not to do anything that requires confidence or courage. If
you do take on an ambitious project, you may find later that your
objectives were totally unrealistic and/or impossible to attain. Be
aware of any urge to deceive – in your Self or others. Take those
rose-colored glasses off and deal with what IS, not what you wish it
was.

11/19 ~ Sun (core identity) ~trine~ Uranus (individuality):

This
energy is wonderful for a little self-examination. 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. What kind of choices led here?
This is a good time to look around and see how you can conserve or
release that which is no longer useful. It’s a good energy for
organizing and clearing the decks, so to speak, of things that have
piled up but still need to be dealt with or released. You’ll be feeling
very practical this week.

11/20 ~ Mercury (thoughts) ~conjunct~ Mars (energy):

I
have to preface this with two things: (1) is when Mercury is involved,
it is a relatively fast-moving energy. (2) is when Mars is involved,
being the lower version of power (Pluto being the Higher version),
reminds us that with power, also comes responsibility. Now, that all
said, the positive expression of this energy is that you can control
your mind and direct it with passion, getting tangible results. This
heightens your intellectual ability and mental capacity (for better or
worse). You will be able to clearly articulate your thoughts and you
should have quick, effective responses. If you maintain your integrity,
this is an excellent time to ‘fuel’ major creative expression. If this
is negative side, it can make you petty and combative,
arguing over nonsense and wasting precious time and energy in ego
control-dramas. And if it is not coming FROM you, it is just as possible
to be coming AT you (from others). This is the best time to put your
energy (Mars) behind your thoughts, ideas and words (Mercury). The power
of this pairing is that they are occupying the same space, essentially
energizing each other.
