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 19 - 25, 2012
2/19 ~ Sun (Self) ~conjunct~ Neptune (illusions):
This energy is known for producing two distinct effects, so watch for one or both to surface. This transit tends to make you very sensitive (rational or not) to other people. If you are one of those people who tends to put everyone else’s needs before your own, watch out, because this makes that urge even stronger. Be aware of two things: (1) most times people who focus so much on others, to the exclusion of their own needs, is because there is something about their own life they do not want to face; and (2) you could get lost in your so-called altruism to the point where you lose touch with reality. This energy is best used alone to meditate and contemplate your own world unless you can be completely detached in your charity work. I use this little motivation to decide - is your life so perfect and abundant that you can afford to spend so much time and energy on another’s life? If so, GREAT! Go for it! If not, however, then “charity begins at home” - work on YOU!
2/23 ~ Mercury (communication) ~oppose~ Mars (anger):
This energy is a mixed blessing. If you are already imbalanced and experiencing any kind of personal famine, you may feel a deep need to be heard which (under pressure) makes you want to tell people what you really think. The problem is, whether you actually SAY anything to anyone or not, you are still giving off angry vibrations which will likely bring angry people into your realm and you could end up in an argument either way. So the only way to really control or avoid this type of combative nature (within or without) is to recognize that only the ego needs to be “heard” in this way, Spirit always only seeks peace. How has your ego been leading lately? If you are NOT already imbalanced, and you are in a strong place, feeling productive and moving forward in your life, then this is a great time to ask those you trust and who can be objective to give you some constructive criticism to help you improve your Self or your position at this time. No matter what, it is a good time to pause before speaking or acting. Any impulsive, re-active thoughts, words or deeds are likely to bring more challenges.
2/25 ~ Sun (core Self) ~sextile~ Jupiter (optimism):
This energy is considered "lucky" but actually it is responsible for putting you in a more positive mind frame which is at the root of all success. Most anything you put forth should bear fruit. There is a LOT of support for all that you need, desire and deserve to finally manifest, or begin to manifest. You'll be pulled toward something greater than your Self alone. You may want to participate in a group thing, either for business or pleasure. This is an excellent time for workshops and seminars - going to one or presenting one yourself, if that's your profession. Pay attention - everything and everyone has something to offer that you may or may not have even known you were looking for!
