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 12 - 18, 2012
2/13 ~ Mercury (your voice) ~trine~ Saturn (reality):
This energy is good for deep thinking. You are sharp and your standards are high because you are in 'strategy mode'. This is a more solitary energy though, so communications with others may be hampered a bit. You may feel like people don't understand what you're trying to convey or that you're coming across more negatively than you intended. This is not a good energy for business negotiations. This energy makes you most critical of your Self, but it could trickle over onto others as well. Beware of a tendency toward pessimism and/or depression. Try to stay focused on all the blessings that you do have and all that you have accomplished instead of what's still on the list of things to do (in life). This energy is not intended to make you feel bad about all the things left yet to do, but encourage you to begin the necessary steps for manifesting your dreams. This energy just makes you focus on the practical side of manifesting. Clear the debris, and begin to lay a new, clean, solid foundation beneath your goals. It sharpens your ability to see the necessary steps with an unusual acumen.
2/14 ~ Mercury (communication) ~conjunct~ Neptune (illusion):
This is a mixed blessing. If you are trying to express yourself creatively, it's great! However, if you have to confront someone about something which requires complete honesty from both parties, things could get a little hazy. This energy tends to color reality, misleading you to think you are being perfectly clear in your communication, while others are completely lost. It's better to say nothing, rather than be completely misunderstood.
2/15 ~ Venus (your values) ~square~ Pluto (transformation):
Hang on - it's going to be a challenging - but hopefully enlightening - week! The first energy to contend with will have much to do with relationships. It creates very intense emotional experiences. This is more Pluto (transformative) energy, and, in this case, it's where love is concerned. So things in relationships will change - hopefully for the better, but if they were not built on solid ground to begin with, they may crumble completely. Stability is not part of the equation at the moment, so prepare for inevitable change. You've probably already felt it coming, but look out, because it is here now. The natural reaction may be to try to hold on to the person or relationship, don't give in to that temptation. Let Divine Order prevail - if it is meant to be, NOTHING can keep it from evolving to the next level, but if it is NOT meant to be, it is better to release it consciously and with the knowledge in your heart that it is best for all involved. And by all means, get the lesson so you don't have to repeat it in the next relationship!
2/16 ~ Mercury (your voice) ~sextile~ Jupiter (expansion):
This energy can make you focus on the larger issues in your life. Your dreams are tapping you on the shoulder, demanding some attention. Mundane issues do not concern you, you want to figure out how to create the life you've been imagining. This energy also provokes within you the understanding that being generous naturally attracts generosity to you (and your cause). You're focused on the big picture and overall patterns which have lead you to this point. Feeling clear, sharp, alert and optimistic, your realize that anything you can imagine, you can achieve.
2/18 ~ Sun (your core drives) ~trine~ Saturn (discipline & order):
This energy is going to help you further organize your life, mainly your home, office or immediate environment. Others may see you as a hard worker, but really you are only doing what you feel must be done at this time. You may be really aware of the connection between who you are and what you do at this time. This energy is giving you an opportunity to see how things are working for you, on a practical level. Evaluate your daily routine and see what’s working and what’s not and move forward.
2/18 ~ 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!
