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: September 16 - 22, 2012
9/19 ~ Uranus (radical change) ~square~ Pluto (death, rebirth & transformation):
These two may need a little qualifying first. Uranus has an 84-year cycle, comprised of 7-year increments (each Sign), breaking in to social cycles of 21 years (square) and 42 years (opposition) as well. Pluto has a 248-year cycle, and spends 11-33 years in each Sign, which comes in waves apparently, but reminds us that “Transformation takes as long as it takes!” Uranus is considered the *Change Agent* ~ while Pluto represents the ultimate (and permanent) transformation. However, they operate considerably differently. Pluto works very slowly, over long periods of time and behind the scenes, exerting its strongest influence from the hidden realms. Uranus works with lightning speed, change in an instant, sudden illumination and life is never the same again. They are getting together in a 90-degree angle (square), which will ultimately build something, but not before the complete destruction of that which is not worthy (ending the old way), the clearing and purifying of space for new growth (preparation) and restructuring from the ground UP (rebirthing/rebuilding). Squares push us *out of comfort zone, in to new territory* ~ they help us *build* something stable and useful through the trials and adjustments, processes and sacrifices made, especially when they are actively engaged like this ... which is rare. (Uranus Squares Pluto every 50-80 years.)
9/20 ~ Mercury (thoughts) ~oppose~ Uranus (radical shift):
This energy tends to make your mind work in over-drive. Not that you think too much, you will think and speak faster than usual, making others seem slow to you. However, when you are moving that fast, sometimes you can overlook something important. The negative expression of this energy tends to make you feel scattered and nervous, but the positive expression of it is understanding things faster, perceiving what is going on around you quicker, and connecting with your intuition on a level you normally cannot access. All the information that comes should be subject to a review in the near future because while it may be valid and useful, there will likely be some oversights due to the speed at which you connect with the information. You will be very impatient with normal routine. It is a good time to breathe and be flexible because ideas and information may come at you at a rapid speed. If you are impatient with this energy, you are more likely to make mistakes. Also, be aware of the need or tendency to be too blunt; sometimes we say things to shock people or just to get a reaction. If this is something you are prone to do, be prepared to back up all that you say eventually.
9/20 ~ Mercury (expression) ~square~ Pluto (transformation):
This energy is a tough, yet powerful one. It's Highest expression would be to focus on your inner discovery and development. It enables you to look beneath the surface to some core drives and gain some valuable insights and thus, choose a plan of action based on your discovery. You will want to know all the hidden meanings behind decisions you've made or want to make soon. Dig - you will find more than you think you're ready for, but apparently the Universe thinks differently! Pay attention and try not to worry about what anyone else thinks or believes. This energy's flip-side is to make you obsess over one particular idea and try to force others to your way of thinking. That is a bottomless pit - you cannot truly change the way other people think - you can only change the way you think and hope it enlightens others along the way ... and it will, for those who are tuned in to your level. Try to only focus on you and your direction.
9/20 ~ Venus (relationships) ~sextile~ Jupiter (optimism):
This energy may help balance out the rest of the things happening this week (hopefully). Try to tap into it if you can, but it is up against some major movement so don’t be surprised if you miss its influence altogether. It is usually an easy energy to deal with, usually involving friends and social activities; optimism and new friendships or relationships that help you be the best person you can be. You will want to deal with positive, uplifting people under this influence.
