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, along with some guidance and direction.
Karmic Tools ~ Weekly Forecast: January 2-8, 2011
1/4 ~ Venus (art & beauty) ~square~ Neptune (vision):
This energy is great for creative flow. If you are artistically inclined in any way, you will have access to an energy that will allow you to create something amazing. This energy is not so good for relationships. There may be a tendency to idealize your partner, only to be let down by the reality of the situation. If your relationship happens to end under this influence, it’s not necessarily a bad thing because it suggests that it was never on solid ground to begin with. Be thankful and move on.
1/4 ~ Jupiter (Truth) ~conjunct~ Uranus (liberation):
These two energies coming together tends to bring expansion (Jupiter) and radical change (Uranus) on social and collective levels, which naturally affects us as individuals too. Their combined power generally expands your awareness so that the parameters you have been working within (personally or professionally) suddenly feel confining and you crave immediate change. Don’t be too hasty and at the same time, recognize that *if* you are truly ready to break old patterns and routines which have grown stale, then this energy will assist you on multiple levels. Keep your personal freedom in mind, but do not shirk your responsibilities in the process or you could find your Self in worse conditions than those that you are trying to escape. With your expanded awareness, you may branch out beyond your personal boundaries and dive in to the social realms to make a bigger contribution, perhaps fighting for the rights and freedoms of others. You can also tune in and find yourself having breakthroughs that have thus far, eluded you ~ be ready! No matter how you slice it, these two getting together is initiating a *new* Truth ~ a *new* Story ~ and bringing you in contact with the possibility of a *new* Path! Pay attention and choose wisely.
1/4 ~ Venus (relationships) ~trine~ Uranus (unique):
This energy is likely to bring a little excitement into your life, one way or another. This is a good time to do something different; shake up your routine. Seek out diversions; try something new! Relationships will have an unusual energy to them; an established relationship may sparkle with some extra “spice” or a new relationship begun under this energy will be stimulating, unusual and probably short-lived. Use this energy to soak up some good energy from those who live on the fringes!
1/4 ~ Venus (socialize) ~trine~ Jupiter (optimism):
This is a most pleasant energy, although short lived. This is a good time to enjoy some kind of social activity. No pressure - just easy, laid back fun. It can make you prone to laziness, but only if you’re already prone to that. Otherwise, if you are typically constantly on the go, this energy gives you permission to kick back a little and release the usual pressures to produce. Take some time out to “smell the roses” or at least reflect on all that you HAVE accomplished and give your Self due credit for coming this far. This is a good time to go on a vacation or short trip. This energy tends to bring forth rewards for past actions. Take a moment to give thanks to the powers that be, which brought you to this point!
1/7 ~ Sun (core identity) ~square~ Saturn (responsibility):
With this energy, it is best to understand that you will have two distinct pulls within - duty versus self-gratification. It's not nearly as bad as it feels, however, it does bring up something we all struggle with to some degree or another - SELF vs. OTHERS. How much do you owe your Self and how much are you obligated to others? Balance and reciprocity come to mind, as guides. One of the challenges of this influence is the tendency to make assumptions without checking whether they are true. Never assume! Some people may feel restricted, as if life is too demanding and there's never any time just for you. Others may find their lives falling apart because they have avoided responsibility for so long and now there's no more "wiggle room". Try to convert your impatience with seeming restriction to self-discipline - make a commitment to your Self and follow through.
Physically and psychologically, your energies may be low at this time. You may feel like the weight of the world is on your shoulders, but you don't expect help because you haven't asked for it. Remember, that is your choice. You may be reinforcing the very circumstances that make you feel lonely and isolated. What you must do is break out of the vicious cycle and take a good look around you, at your life and the people you allow in it. The events related to this transit tend to magnify the chinks in your ego structure. The purpose of discouragement is to reveal the weaknesses in your conception of your Self and to show where you must work to gain greater confidence in your Self.
