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 1 - 7, 2012
1/1 ~ Mercury (thoughts) ~square~ Mars (anger):
This is going to be a tough one. This energy tends to make you feel touchy or irritable where communication is concerned; feeling like everyone is challenging you in one way or another. Try to step back and gain some perspective before reacting. This provokes debates and, in some people, actual fights, so be careful. If you have any repressed anger at all, you should find the safest outlet to express it - either at the gym or in a letter that you can later read and edit in a calmer state of mind. It is best to seek solitude and silence than say things you cannot take back. A milder expression of this energy is that you may have to defend your choices, ideas or beliefs to someone else. This could be a simple discussion to a heated argument. Try to keep things in perspective, and not allow the passion you may feel cloud your better judgment. If you have to present something passionately, this energy can help but don't provoke a battle where it's not necessary. Keep in mind the reverse of this is others coming at YOU in an extreme or unreasonable way (for the subject). Any accidents that occur under this influence have more to do with repressed anger issues than "bad luck" so keep an eye out for any resentments bubbling under the surface. You could attract accidents to your Self or take it out on some unsuspecting bystander without realizing that's what you are doing. If it is not actually you feeling this way, you may be on the receiving end of it from someone around you, where they are antagonistic toward you.
1/7 ~ 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.
1/7 ~ Mercury (expression) ~sextile~ Neptune (dreams):
This is a great energy for being imaginative and intuitive. This is not an intellectual energy, you will have to rely on other senses, like feeling (intuition). You may be very perceptive as to what others are thinking or feeling. Try to avoid work that requires any attention to detail. Allow your creativity to flow freely without censoring what comes through you at this time. You can organize it later. This is the energy to CREATE!
