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.
This month we are feeling the pressure to produce results - either from ourselves or outer circumstances (or both). Either way, you have to be extremely mindful of how you spend your energy at this time. Strategic thinking takes practice but you must make the effort to expand your mind to access additional options you may not have realized you had ... and then TRY THEM! (What do you have to lose?) Mother Earth provides EVERYTHING we could possibly need to live this life. It is all within each and every one of us.
Taurus/Scorpio energy brings awareness of your deepest values, renewal of your priorities and access to the power to co-create your world. Taurus time (April/May) and the Taurus New Moon are the annual opportunities to seed the *Garden* of your life ... while Scorpio time (Oct/Nov) and the Scorpio Full Moon bring the annual gifts of power, magic and purification. Working consciously with these energies gives you a chance to truly ground your Highest intentions and bring them in to 'form' to serve the greater good, which will attract blessings beyond your wildest imagination ... *IF* you maintain integrity and DO THE WORK! Earth energy requires getting real ~ getting serious ~ and getting dirty!
Mars Retrograde in LEO: 2009-2010 ~ Replenish Your Energy & Redefine Your Heart's Desire ~ Mars is the motivating force within you that pushes you to do anything in the world. It's your personal will and connection to power on a mundane level, and most of all, it's the part of you that needs something to *DO*. "Idle time is the devil's workshop" is never truer than a Mars with no purpose or direction. To accomplish anything, you must first have the desire, then the energy and ultimately, the action you take dictates the results you'll receive.
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.
Happy New Year! Can you feel it? We are definitely in *new* territory now! Think of when you just move in to a new place: you are exhausted & excited ~ you are hopeful & anxious ~ resources are probably low (energy and funds) ... and now, you are faced with *un-packing* and setting up *new* sacred space. We have just moved in to a new realm of existence and we must get "set up". Walk with me here ... you just moved, and you did a tremendous amount of purging as you packed and prepared to *move* ... as you unload your "stuff" in this new space, you realize there is more to be cleared, things don't work or fit the space and you release attachment to things you've held near & dear for some time
This energy will help you figure out what your deepest desires and Truth really are if you are not sure, and if you ARE sure already, then this is a potent opportunity to take things to the next level.
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.
