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 24 - 30, 2016
1/30 ~ Mercury (mind, thoughts & ideas) ~conjunct~ Pluto (purification & transformation):
(3 of 3: 12.19.2015 ~ 1/22 ~ 1/30)
This activation takes you into the depths of your own mind & consciousness, deepening all communications. You may find yourself obsessing over something, either by yourself or in an attempt to convey something to another. Superficial, quick once-overs, trying to keep things on the surface level will not likely be possible with this energy. You may feel 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 to evade it. It's not-so-good when you're obsessing over someone or something which no longer serves (or your Highest good). The challenge with this energy is the tendency to be really intense and locked-in on your own point of view, which is no less valid, but often this type of mental intensity blinds you to something obvious that you overlooked because you were not being objective, but being driven by much deeper (possibly unconscious) emotions. Your intensity is capable of influencing others but be aware of the difference between sharing information and trying to "convince, convert or cajole" others, as that can naturally attract challenges & opposition. Remember, the opposite can also be true, where you're on the receiving end of this intense energy from someone else (trying to convince you). 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. This is an Initiation.
1/30 ~ Venus (essence & natural beauty) ~sextile~ Neptune (consciousness & vision):
This energy connects your true values & priorities to the planet of dreams, mysticism & other dimensions (Neptune). You have an opportunity to gain some traction on making your vision tangible just by connecting to the essence you want to experience. Feel the feeling and that will lead to the physical manifestation later. This energy helps you believe in what is possible and supports any artistic expression or active practice (vision boards, affirmations etc) that helps you hone the actual vision. Steps and strategies are for other planets, Venus only cares about nature & love and Neptune is definitely not who you'd work with for 'steps/strategies' ; -) Tune in to the natural beauty around you and suspend any usual inner dialogue for a day or two (as soon as you can) so you can connect to some inspiration guided by your own Heart & Soul (from the inside-out).
