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, along with some guidance and direction.
Karmic Tools ~ Weekly Forecast: Nov 7 - 20, 2010
November 7 - 13, 2010 / NO TRANSITS THIS WEEK! / But other major movements continue.
November 14 - 20, 2010
11/15 ~ Mars (action) ~sextile~ Saturn (endurance):
This energy gives you a tremendous power booster to your drive to create stability, as you define it. You will WANT to do the work, starting with a plan that is carefully thought out and then methodically carried out. Plan and Do! Not just one or the other - Both! The rewards for your hard work, the return on your investment will reflect what energy you have put in to stabilizing your life. This energy should NOT be restrained but consciously directed. Excessive restriction (Saturn) may cause an explosion (Mars) down the line, whereas a sold base (Saturn) contains the fire (Mars) so it becomes useful as well as beautiful.
11/15 ~ Sun (core-Self) ~trine~ Jupiter (expansion):
You should take advantage of this good energy to connect to something useful - get something solid accomplished this week after the emotional roller coaster! You may feel like your energy is low and you just want to veg-out and not think about ANYTHING, but that would be a total waste of some positive, useful energy that you could actually access and use to connect to your current goals and make some headway even. Don't sleep through this! It is an enthusiastic, optimistic energy that will open doors for you, depending on your attitude. It will allow you to see the big picture and the next necessary step toward your goal at this time. You have probably already laid some groundwork, this energy will give you a boost in the right direction - take advantage of it! Use the insights you gained earlier in the week with some of the deeper issues that arose and stand back and see the Divine Order in your life - see how all the pieces fit together to make something greater than what was there before. Sometimes it's necessary to have emotional upheavals to bring stuff to the surface and purge it. You must clear the debris in order to create a solid foundation under your dreams.
11/17 ~ 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.
11/18 ~ Sun (core identity) ~square~ Neptune (dissolution):
Your energy may be lower than usual today. This is the Universe's way of slowing you down, momentarily. Take it easy and put off anything that can be put off. You may feel pessimistic, however, it will pass. In the meantime, try not to do anything that requires confidence or courage. If you do take on an ambitious project, you may find later that your objectives were totally unrealistic and/or impossible to attain. Be aware of any urge to deceive - in your Self or others. Take those rose-colored glasses off and deal with what IS, not what you wish it was.
11/19 ~ Sun (core identity) ~trine~ Uranus (individuality):
This energy is wonderful for a little self-examination. Look at your habits, home situation, work or anything else that is important to you and look at how you've gotten to where you are. What kind of choices led here? This is a good time to look around and see how you can conserve or release that which is no longer useful. It's a good energy for organizing and clearing the decks, so to speak, of things that have piled up but still need to be dealt with or released. You'll be feeling very practical this week.
11/20 ~ Mercury (thoughts) ~conjunct~ Mars (energy):
I have to preface this with two things: (1) is when Mercury is involved, it is a relatively fast-moving energy. (2) is when Mars is involved, being the lower version of power (Pluto being the Higher version), reminds us that with power, also comes responsibility. Now, that all said, the positive expression of this energy is that you can control your mind and direct it with passion, getting tangible results. This heightens your intellectual ability and mental capacity (for better or worse). You will be able to clearly articulate your thoughts and you should have quick, effective responses. If you maintain your integrity, this is an excellent time to ‘fuel’ major creative expression. If this energy manifests is negative side, it can make you petty and combative, arguing over nonsense and wasting precious time and energy in ego control-dramas. And if it is not coming FROM you, it is just as possible to be coming AT you (from others). This is the best time to put your energy (Mars) behind your thoughts, ideas and words (Mercury). The power of this pairing is that they are occupying the same space, essentially energizing each other.
