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: December 18 – 24, 2011
12/18 ~ Venus (values) ~square~ Saturn (foundation):
This energy can make you feel cool and reserved with loved ones. It is time to 'take stock' of your relationships and really evaluate the level of balance between giving and receiving. Business or personal – relationships must have a balance of give and take. You may feel more aware of your true independence in life – you cannot truly become "ONE" with anyone else. The goal is to become "ONE" within – integrating your human and Spirit selves in a healthy, balanced way. You may feel lonely or depressed but it's just the Universe forcing you to face how you interact with others and how you allow them to interact with you. It's good to periodically evaluate even the strongest relationship and check the foundation. Don't give in to (ego-based) fears, focusing on the lack and limitation, acknowledge and honor the strengths as well – in your Self, in eachother and in the relationship. This is the best time to be alone and reflective because the insights you acquire through this process will help you in the future.
12/19 ~ Sun (core Self) ~sextile~ Saturn (organization):
This energy best of the week, try to connect with it more than the restriction the other energies this week bring. This energy is good for getting serious and organized … albeit may be emotionally as much as any where else in your life. You have access to some good discipline and the ability to consider all your options before deciding on anything. This is a good time to focus on your professional life if possible, and start making a solid, feasible plan for the future. If you need to, seek the advice of an older figure that you trust. And if you can't actually DO something in the direction of your goals today, take the time to meditate and connect to your plan mentally.
12/20 ~ Sun (identity) ~sextile~ Neptune (vision):
More sharp intuition available this week. You are able to step outside your Self and see how others' needs are important. You may feel the urge to be more giving and understanding than usual. This is also a good time for spiritual development. It won't be enough to merely know something, you will want to know the "larger" meaning. Your energy may be naturally low, that's an indication that it's time to focus more inwardly.
12/20 ~ Venus (socializing) ~square~ Jupiter (increase):
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 a good time. However, if you have work to do, make sure it gets done first so you can truly enjoy yourself without the worry of the pile being bigger when you return. Watch the excesses as well, food, drink and/or spending.
12/21 ~ Venus (beauty) ~sextile~ Uranus (sudden clarity):
This energy involves Uranus which always makes you seek to break the monotony of routine or boring people. You will be more outgoing and capable of attracting unusual people and events. Take advantage of this energy to tap into areas you may not have realized were available to you before. Keep it light and upbeat; socialize and enjoy the experience of new people or 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. Accept this gift!
12/22 ~ 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.
12/22 ~ Sun (source) ~square~ Uranus (radical shift):
This energy’s motto is “expect the unexpected”; this is a challenging and disruptive energy. However, keep in mind the morning after a storm – the air smells and tastes and feels BETTER. There is something inside you that you are holding back from full expression – what is it? Why are you holding back? This energy, while uncomfortable and perhaps, sudden, is very necessary to disrupt an illusions you may be trying to hold on to. You may have unreasonable restrictions placed on you or you are putting unreasonable restrictions on others in some way – either way, try to figure out the purpose. The suggestion here is that you need some AIR – you are restless and you are inclined to want to do something rash; it would be better if you just take a break, quit early and embrace this energy consciously. Otherwise, if you repress the need to get that air, you will create difficulties which could really affect your direction. No self-sabotage!! Pay attention and find an outlet for this pent up, stagnant energy.
