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, along with some guidance and direction.
Weekly Forecast: October 16 – 22, 2011
10/16 ~ Mercury (communication) ~sextile~ Pluto (transformation):
This energy provokes the need to delve deep! In your outer life, you may ask probing questions about any proposals that come your way. It's not a suspicious thing, you just want the whole picture. In your inner life, you will feel brave about looking at the deeper issues you're going through at this time. You may feel ready to face things you haven't been ready to face before now. Also, as a result of gaining these new, deep insights, you'll want to spread the knowledge. You may have the urge to change other people's thinking on a given subject. That's great, if they are open and receptive, not to mention ready. But on the other hand, is it really your place to decide if another is ready or not? Be careful in spreading your new-found insights. Test the waters before you jump!
10/17 ~ Mercury (communication) ~oppose~ Jupiter (optimism):
This is a great complement to the previous energy because it gives the optimism that is lacking in the previous energy. This energy gives so much optimism and tends to make you think "big" that alone, you could overlook necessary details. It's great to have access to this energy – plan, strategize, discuss with others, get input and feedback, bounce ideas around and be open and receptive to others' points of view (they may think of something you didn't).
10/21 ~ Sun (authenticity) ~trine~ Neptune (intuition):
This energy triggers your idealistic side and provokes a desire to understand things on a deeper, more spiritual level. Try to use this energy to reflect on where you are and where you want to be, mentally, spiritually and physically. Take time to meditate and be still, quiet and alone. You may feel compelled to do things today that have no direct benefit for you; finding satisfaction in giving. Just be sure to 'help those who help themselves'. Your intuition is heightened also, so pay attention to any 'messages' that come through to you.
