The video version of this forecast, as read by Kelly, is available here.
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: January 10 – 16, 2021
1/11 ~ Mercury (ideas, thoughts & concepts) ~conjunct~ Jupiter (expansion & learning): (1 of 3: 1/11 ~ 2/14 ~ 3/4)
It is time to expand your thinking & develop more conscious awareness! This is a powerful energy assisting you on many levels. You will make connections easily & quickly that help you integrate newly acquired information or knowledge, making you appear psychic (or at least lucky) to others. At this time, you can connect with your Highest ideal and most broad outlook for your life, and you may feel that you are finally ready to live your Truth. You are so connected to your own ideal that you naturally give others permission to live their Truth as well, creating an atmosphere of tolerance that feeds all involved. The challenge with this energy is going too ‘broad’ and missing details that are vital to your success. You will also miss out on crucial information if you are too overconfident and/or self-righteous in any way. Remain humble, knowing that your way works for you, but it may not work for others (and vice versa). And it is ALL okay! If you remain centered in the Light and your own Heart, this energy gives you a little boost to whatever you are creating at this time.
1/12 ~ Mercury (lower mind & ideas) ~square~ Uranus (Higher Mind & awakening):
This energy challenges you to expand your mind or consciousness in a way, pushing you to think differently and respond to information in new ways. Uranus brings sudden ah-ha moments, personal awareness and radical perceptions & conceptions, which is great for you adventurous souls who thrive on change and new ideas. However, if you are personally attached to your routine and things ‘going as planned’, then this energy can cause aggravation and tax your nervous system because things will seem sudden (even though it is more likely that they have already been brewing under the surface for some time now). You will have to adjust and be more open & mentally flexible than usual. You may not be able to control the excessive mental activity or information-overload coming in, but hopefully you can direct it a bit. It’s good to activate or clean your personal filters by taking some time in Nature to process things at your own pace and generally clear your head. This can be a very inspiring & creative time, so try to tune into that, while keeping in mind that anything you begin or get into, may require a review later so you can check over the details of your revelations (or creations). You’re just cracking the surface, this is all about the revelation or awakening, so you will eventually have to figure out the logistics or effective actions necessary to bring your ideas into form, but this is where the dream (or idea) begins and where Jupiter is here to expand it in some way.
1/13 ~ Mars (energy) ~square~ Saturn (responsibility):
(3 of 3: 8.24.2020 ~ 9.29.2020 ~ 1.13.2021)
This is the energy of action being restricted and the anger or frustration that follows. You can either be angry and feel restricted, limited and unable to move … or you can see this energy as an opportunity to define the right actions to take and strategically plan to take them when the Universe is more supportive. This energy requires us to slow down and double check The Plan. If you proceed consciously, your plan has a better chance of success than if you were reckless & impatient. You may experience a blockage of some sort, internal or external. You may feel this tremendous urge to change or move forward in your life but seem to find blockages and limitations with every effort. That is likely your perception, so you need to ask if you feel inadequate to the task at hand? What are you afraid of? Fear is False Evidence Appearing Real – release fear and choose to be responsible for creating your life. If you don’t, your outer circumstance only becomes a reflection of your inner belief. You will attract criticism and repel support. Take your grand vision and figure out three small steps you can take on this restricted level that is still taking you in the direction of your goal. Don’t try to initiate at this time, this is a time for cultivating, planning, working behind the scenes, doing the detail work and foundational (grunt work) that is NECESSARY to support the grand vision when the time comes to fully express it.
1/13 ~ Venus (love, finances & relationships) ~trine~ Uranus (freedom & liberation):
This energy is likely to bring a little excitement into your life, one way or another. It is a good time to do something different, try something new & consciously put your Self in situations where you have to improvise or think on your feet. We are in times of breaking old patterns and re-setting them in more positive, effective ways. You can still live your true values & priorities, but something has changed within. This blessing from the Cosmos allows you to align with more personal authenticity, which in turn is infused into all that you love & treasure. Relationships will have an unusual energy to them. An established relationship may get shaken up or sparkle with some extra “spice” or a new relationship begun under this influence may be stimulating & unusual but probably short-lived too. This is not a bad thing! It’s actually perfect for improvising and experimenting with new ideas & expressions to see what you actually respond to, what your Heart aligns with and responds to. Use this energy to soak up some good energy & rare wisdom from those who are unique, those who do things differently and live life to the fullest!
1/13 ~ CAPRICORN New Moon:
This lunation is our bridge between 2020 & 2021. We are planting seeds in the rich, potent darkness of closing out 2020. All that has lived and died last year, feeds the root of what you will grow in the coming year. All around Dec 21st, before, during & after, there are powerful activations, which also feed the root of what you’re seeding for the new year. The last few years may have rearranged your family or work structures, which automatically affect the foundations of your identity and relationships. Or conversely, you may have had more identity and relationship changes that forced you to do family or work in a completely new way. See how they are all related? December/January is dedicated to opening our consciousness to a completely new vision of living our lives in everyday reality, and evolving our true purpose along the way. We can reclaim a strong, stable structure & a secure base & foundation ~ including our environment, our body, our merkaba vehicle, as well as containers for ourselves & our creative projects. Boundaries ~ Guidelines ~ Rules ~ Manners ~ Structure ~ Foundation – these are all things we are redefining post-2020 and going forward. This is affecting everyone, but it is particularly intense & customized for the *Cardinal* Family… CAPRICORN *Initiation* ~ CANCER *Integration* ~ ARIES/LIBRA *Test/Growth*.
It is time to …
· Restore Your Base & Physical Strength, Flexibility & Endurance
· Create New Plan/Strategy that Reflects Your Original Blueprint
…………Plus the Recent Upgrades
· Reclaim Your True Earned Wisdom, Inner Wealth,
…………Personal Protection, Stability & Independence
· Practice Inviting the Council of Elders/Grandmothers
…………to Inform & Guide You
· Activate Your Power to Support Your Life
…………and Hold Your Own Structure
It would be excellent if you chose one *Seed* to nurture throughout the new year (2021), paying attention to quarterly evolution (growth of your seed) and seeing what you are able to manifest by this time next year. Capricorn brings up our commitments and responsibilities, those too are getting *rebooted* with a clean slate, which will push you to hone in on those that really support & protect you as well. The *Seeds* you plant at this time are extremely potent as this New Beginning is much larger in scope than the usual Annual Cycle. You are NEW ~ your reality is NEW ~ you are in NEW territory. That means you have many possible directions you could go, so choosing & following through become your sole responsibility and crucial to your success. Take it slow, cultivate what is working and release what is not.
The Capricorn lesson centers around Inner Authority & Personal Responsibility. What are you known for in your personal life and what are you known for in your professional life? This is an opportunity to clarify what Sacred, Heart-Centered Work is for you and release any blockages to you contributing your unique piece to society. This is an opportunity to release any weakness, fear and let go of the past once and for all. It is time to center and truly own who you are and what you want from this life and then you can use this energy to renew your commitment to living your Truth & Purpose. You will be recognized and rewarded in equal measure to your commitment and dedication. It’s all up to you. You have a clean slate to begin with and the ability to fulfill the potential of your Being here, now and for the next 10-20 years.
1/14 ~ Sun (source & essential Self) ~conjunct~ Pluto (purification & transformation):
This energy brings to mind a quote, “circumstances don’t make a man, they reveal him”. The Sun (ego) and Pluto (transformation) are connecting and you are often a different Being once this energy passes and the two planets separate again (they meet once a year). Pluto brings into the Light, aspects of our Selves which may have been buried, neglected or ignored lately (or for some, a very long time). Sometimes that is miraculous & life-saving, and other times this can be arduous & exhausting, but it is a completely natural process. With this energy, you can now more fully access your own Source (Sun) and transcend (Pluto) who you “used to be” and begin to truly embody who you are becoming. Bringing things into the Light comes in many forms, as you question all that you thought you were or thought you knew about what you really want to express in this lifetime. You can use this as a Rebirth of Light within you or you can look at it as Light being brought to your deepest, darkest places within to heal them with a pure Universal Light. It is an initiation that often requires a release or sacrifice of some kind that, ultimately, allows you to grow & blossom in new, more authentic ways. As always, concentrated power (Pluto) must be responsibly directed, so watch any projections or provoked power struggles and pick your battles (everybody doesn’t like Light in their dark places). It’s time to question if the sacrifices you’re making are truly worth it? Relationships often strain under this influence because it is such *raw truth* rising from the Soul but it also brings things to the surface that are better addressed sooner than later. (Think: The Tower card in Tarot.) It doesn’t have to be destroyed necessarily (or maybe it does) as much as it needs to be transformed (new form). Remember, breakdowns always precede the breakthroughs!!
1/14 ~ Uranus Direct in TAURUS:
With Uranus, we are finally settling into an annual rhythm for the next 6-7 years. The personal planets will interact with Uranus in Taurus in a similar way every year that we can consciously co-create with and every year’s annual retrograde is a special time to assimilate the changes you’ve been going through. Uranus is a collective planet and so affects many people and takes 7-years to accomplish its mission in each sign. It will awaken the Taurus department of life (House) and stimulate any of your planets in Taurus/Scorpio or Leo/Aquarius (by default). The last 4-5 months have revealed what aspect of your life needs the most awakening and/or vitality. This will be an annual process that you can consciously co-create with if you’re paying attention. Uranus wakes up & shakes up your routine with a sudden shock of some sort and it is up to you to not fall back asleep or back into the old patterns. There is a shift in the values & priorities (Taurus) that support that newly awakened Emergent Self and how that works on the ground, in your body, on the Earth, in real time. So use this annual energy to wake up dormant resources within you and learn how your electro-magnetic field really works. It takes conscious practice and dedicated focus when working with your own power. We are cultivating a whole new way of living in our bodies and on the planet and each year that Uranus travels through Taurus is going to awaken you to this reality.
