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, as well as guidance and direction.
*NOTE* There are some days when there are NO CONTACTS (besides the Moon), please note that there are no missing entries, we just list the actual Activations of each week + the day they happen.
Weekly Forecast: January 8 – 14, 2012
1/8 ~ Mercury (voice) ~trine~ Jupiter (enthusiasm):
This energy is great for planning for the future and getting organized. However, you may not feel that disciplined and that is what it will require to maximize the use of this energy – DISCIPLINE! How bad do you want it? If you are alert, you will be able to see – and seize – opportunities as they present themselves. Others may think you're "lucky" but it's more that you were positive, "alert" and trusted your instincts than anything else. This energy also makes you very optimistic which usually attracts positive things to you! Take advantage of this good energy to connect to whatever it is you are trying to manifest in your life at this time.
1/8 ~ Mercury (connection) ~square~ Uranus (intuition):
This energy provokes a lot of mental stimulation! If you are naturally flexible, this energy tends to make you get bored easily; if your are NOT naturally flexible, prepare to be aggravated. Relax if you can. The Universe may decide to remind you that YOU are NOT in control. And the more stubborn and inflexible you are, the more it will let you have it! Either way, it will be a fast pace. You will have electrical flashes of inspiration. Keep that going, but anything you begin or get into, be sure to check over the details next week as they will not be your priority this week. This week is for creative planning – next week you can figure out the logistics.
1/12 ~ Sun (core identity) ~trine~ Mars (desire):
This is a powerful energy for solidifying who you are and what you are capable of. It brings out your desire to be truly self-sustained and independent, and with the good angle between Sun and Mars, makes forward movement almost effortless. 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. 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.
1/13 ~ Venus (love & money) ~trine~ Saturn (stability):
This energy tends to make you very realistic about your relationships and is, therefore, a good time to talk about any recent challenges or future plans. Venus is the energy of love and money, so you will also be objective and somewhat conservative where both your relationships and finances are concerned. With this interaction with Saturn, I would suggest outlining a reasonable financial goals for the next 3 – 6 – 12 months. Relationships started under this influence should be fairly stable and more practical than passionate, but solid nonetheless.
1/13 ~ Mercury (communication) ~conjunct~ Pluto (in depth):
This is an intense mental energy, deepening all thoughts and/or communications. You may find yourself obsessing over something, either by yourself or in an attempt to share your point of view with another. Superficiality will not be tolerated today. You are determined to dig and investigate till you get to the core or base issue. It’s good for soul-searching when it’s a genuine desire to know the truth, rather than evade it. It’s not so good when you’re obsessing over someone or something which no longer serves (your Highest good). The challenge with this energy is the tendency to “know” you’re right, when in fact, you are not. Your intensity is capable of influencing others but be aware of the difference between sharing information and trying to “convince” someone of something. This can cause some opposition. Remember, this can also be the opposite, where you’re on the receiving end of this intense energy from someone else. The best way to use this energy, as it doesn’t really last that long, is to turn that intensity toward Self, peel the layers to YOUR own Truth and Purpose. The channels are open for a time and you can communicate and receive information from the deepest part of your Soul.
1/13 ~ Venus (values) ~conjunct~ Neptune (dreams):
This energy is the power of your vision combined with your deepest values. Your connection to the whole, your contribution and your purpose are demanding some attention. It is time to be more intuitive than linear – time to inspire rather than convince. Finances and relationships are hard to sort out definitively with this energy, it is better to express yourself creatively or artistically. This energy reminds you how interrelated everything is, so aligning your values within and without goes a long way for manifesting the vision. Follow your intuition and maintain integrity.
1/14 ~ Venus (relationships) ~sextile~ Jupiter (optimism):
This energy may help balance out the rest of the things happening this week (hopefully). Try to tap into it if you can, but it is up against some major movement so don’t be surprised if you miss its influence altogether. It is usually an easy energy to deal with, usually involving friends and social activities; optimism and new friendships or relationships that help you be the best person you can be. You will want to deal with positive, uplifting people under this influence.
