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: October 7 - 13, 2012
10/7 ~ Mars (desire) ~square~ Neptune (illusions):
This can be an annoying energy, to say the least. Basically, you may be confronted with challenges which are a direct result of earlier choices. These are the kind of choices you eventually realized were wrong and “hoped” the consequences would somehow pass you by. Not. You may feel very discouraged, possibly depressed, and be filled with fear and doubt. The key to getting through this energy is to take a step back, reflect on your choices and what led you to this point and, as objectively as possible, evaluate what went wrong. The tendency with this energy is to want to give up completely on the path you have chosen when all that is necessary is a little tweaking. Identify the aspect that is causing the conflict. If you don’t feel that you can be objective enough or that you struggle with identifying this aspect, enlist two other people to give you their opinion and follow your gut instinct on the direction to take from here. The other temptation with this energy is to be deceptive - either to your Self or others. Either way - don’t give in - it will only come back to bite you (harder) later. Your physical energy is likely to be low as well. Do not force your Self to do anything you are truly not “feeling” right now. Instead, mediate on what action may be necessary when your energy returns. Be still. Avoid confrontations with others as it is just the conflicting energy kicking and it is not likely that a resolution can be found under this influence regardless. My personal two-cents about these two planets (Mars & Neptune) in a difficult angle, is to reflect on what actions (Mars) have been taken (and NOT worked) toward the fulfillment of your dreams (Neptune) - and start your “tweaking” there.
10/9 ~ 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.
10/9 ~ Venus (relationships) ~trine~ Pluto (transformation):
This energy tends to “intensify” relationships and/or emotions. You may feel extremely drawn to someone, emotionally as well as physically. You may feel the intense need to express your love, mentally, emotionally and physically. This energy is great for bringing deeper insights to the surface, which ultimately should strengthen any relationship. A new relationship started under this influence will have an intensity about it, as will any form of expression (artistic and otherwise).
10/10 ~ Mercury (communication) ~sextile~ Pluto (transformation):
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!
10/10 ~ Saturn (Reality) ~trine~ Neptune (Dreams): (1 of 3: 10/10 - 6/11 – 7/19)
Here we have the planet of form, structure and reality (Saturn) coming together with the planet of formlessness, surrender and dreams (Neptune) in an easy angle. This means that you have support for integrating some imagination in to your 3D/reality as well as, grounding and stabilizing your dreams, visions and spiritual belief system in practical, conscious ways. The Shadow side of these two would likely be some form of either, being too "real" and blocking blessings from the unknown ... or being completely delusional and not putting your ideals in to practice. It is the best time to learn something like art or yoga that combines mind, body and spirit but also requires some discipline and concentration to achieve or master. This is tremendous support for deepening your dedication to cultivating a renewed *vision* for your life and actually being able to take steps toward creating a more solid foundation so the vision can be supported and sustained long-term. You are a Spirit in Human form and this is the best planetary support for mastering that within and navigating the world in a way that actively demonstrates your integrity and fortitude. Think in terms of 7-year increments and reflect on how your life has unfolded in the last 7-years. What is solid? What is fluid? What is real, visible, necessary support (for you)? What is invisible, spiritual, energetic support (for you)? Define your terms and use this energy to its fullest!
