Weekly Forecast: December 24 - 31, 2017

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: December 24 - 31, 2017 

12/25 ~ Venus (values & priorities) ~conjunct~ Saturn (responsibility & structure):

(1 of 3 in Capricorn:  12.25.2017 ~ 2.18.2019 ~ 12.11.2019)

This is a powerful initiation when you can infuse your current reality with more beauty & true value, as well as anchor a renewed sense of Inner Authority. This is your life, and it is way too short to be living someone else's values. This energy supports you entirely, for renewing your commitment & dedication to that which is most important to your Heart & SoulSelf. Saturn lends the fortitude to the current process of pruning the non-essential, plugging energy-leaks and protecting what you love. If you define what you truly love & value, (re)commit and channel this considerable power, you will find that all you need, desire & deserve can manifest, take root & grow ~ with ease, grace & beauty! Because Venus rules our relationships, often a Saturn contact pushes us to face the reality, and renegotiate the relationship so that both parties can (re)commit with integrity, and at a new level (or not, you have the Inner Authority to walk away too). 

*Saturn in Capricorn (2018-2020) gives support for stabilizing the fundamentals in your life: home/work or personal/professional and self/other or individual/relationship. Saturn rules Capricorn and is strongest in this placement. It will be initiating in your Capricorn House, integrating balance in your Cancer House and testing your Aries/Libra Houses to grow out of comfort zone and into new territory. Last time we got a Reality Check like this one was the late-1980's so this is a potent time to let go of anything unstable and all used up so you can create a whole new foundation for living. Saturn rewards hard work, dedication and being responsible for your Self and all that you contribute to the planet and even moreso in its home sign. Take advantage of this couple of years to take a serious look at your personal values & priorities and how they contribute to the greater whole, for better or worse.  

12/28 ~ Mars (desires & actions) ~trine~ Neptune (dreams & visions):

This energy is good for spiritual exploration, digging deeper into your place in the Cosmos and in relation to others. Your energy is best turned inward, as you find just how much who you are and what you want has changed over recent years and using this energy to infuse more depth into your heart's desires. By infusing your dreams & visions for your Self, you naturally bless Others & the Universe. You may feel inclined to help others, but always balance that drive with some objectivity (are those you're helping just as dedicated as you are to the common cause?) This is a very laid back energy that allows you time to take effective action on behalf of your dreams and spiritual growth, more than outward action or specific steps. Enjoy it!
