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: February 10 - 16, 2013
2/10 ~ Mars (passion) ~square~ Jupiter (enthusiasm):
This energy can be expressed one of two ways (like most) - you can over-extend your Self and your resources being overly optimistic without actually doing any planning or work, relying on luck alone and unfortunately, this expression will basically make you pay double (in more ways than one) sooner or later. The better way to express this energy is to think of what you are DOING today as the benefit to you in the future. You have access to foresight, so use it to foresee what your ultimate goal is and what steps you can take today to make that happen. Focus on what can be, rather than what is right now. You also have access to increased energy and optimism, which can be built on but not if you overdo it, then you defeat the whole purpose. Calculated risk is okay - impulsive reactions - NOT. This is also the energy of when things are good - they are very good but when they are bad, they are terrible! So keep it positive, stay focused and balance your input with your output - mentally and physically.
2/11 ~ 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.
2/12 ~ Mercury (communication) ~sextile~ Pluto (transformation): (1 of 3: 2/12 ~ 3/7 ~ 3/29)
This energy provokes the need to delve deep! In your outer life, you may ask probing questions about any proposals that come your way. It's not a suspicious thing, you just want the whole picture. In your inner life, you will feel brave about looking at the deeper issues you're going through at this time. You may feel ready to face things you haven't been ready to face before now. Also, as a result of gaining these new, deep insights, you'll want to spread the knowledge. You may have the urge to change other people's thinking on a given subject. That's great, if they are open and receptive, not to mention ready. But on the other hand, is it really your place to decide if another is ready or not? Be careful in spreading your new-found insights. Test the waters before you jump!
2/12 ~ Mercury (your voice) ~trine~ Saturn (reality): (1 of 3: 2/12 ~ 3/7 ~ 3/28)
This energy is good for deep thinking. You are sharp and your standards are high because you are in 'strategy mode'. This is a more solitary energy though, so communications with others may be hampered a bit. You may feel like people don't understand what you're trying to convey or that you're coming across more negatively than you intended. This is not a good energy for business negotiations. This energy makes you most critical of your Self, but it could trickle over onto others as well. Beware of a tendency toward pessimism and/or depression. Try to stay focused on all the blessings that you do have and all that you have accomplished instead of what's still on the list of things to do (in life). This energy is not intended to make you feel bad about all the things left yet to do, but encourage you to begin the necessary steps for manifesting your dreams. This energy just makes you focus on the practical side of manifesting. Clear the debris, and begin to lay a new, clean, solid foundation beneath your goals. It sharpens your ability to see the necessary steps with an unusual acumen.
2/15 ~ Mars (action) ~sextile~ Pluto (transformation):
This is action and transformation creating opportunities. So you should have a considerable amount of drive and the energy you need to make great strides of progress ... IF you know what you want. Mars represents our desire nature so if you are not sure of yourself or sure of what you want this energy can be more frustrating than productive. However, for those who are clear on their truth and purpose, what they need, desire and deserve, will get tremendous support from this energy. This is a potent and (thankfully) positive mix. This activation is a great opportunity for substantial forward movement, however, nothing worthwhile comes without conscious effort and sacrifice. (With Pluto involved there is ALWAYS a sacrifice.) In this case, the sacrifice will likely be where your vision of the final outcome is concerned. Your desires can/will be fulfilled but they just may not "look" like you thought they would. Remember, when it comes to "wanting" anything, stay in touch with the "feeling" that your desire brings rather than the physical appearance or manifestation. You always want to set your intentions, do the work, then ALLOW Spirit to breathe LIFE in to the vision.
2/16 ~ Mars (energy) ~trine~ Saturn (stamina):
This is a delicious combo! Saturn brings the long term goals to the table and Mars' energy can fuel your efforts creating amazing results. This energy enables you to focus longer, attend to the details, overcome obstacles, and get more tangible results of your actions. Normally, these two get together and it is more the ‘tortoise and the hare' energy, which can be frustrating. However, they are in a blessed position to each other and if there is any major project which needs your attention, now is the time you will likely be in the mood to tackle it and be completely supported.
