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.
Weekly Forecast: October 09 - 15, 2011
10/12 ~ Mercury (ideas) ~trine~ Neptune (dreams):
This energy stimulates your creative process. You may be tempted to daydream but it is better to use that energy to investigate the deeper meaning of your current process. If you do get to talk to people about what’s on your mind, it is not the time for pragmatic analysis, but more a time to explore the infinite possibilities available to you. You may be more sensitive than usual, opening yourself to information that isn’t always that readily available. Pay attention and allow the information to flow - analyze it later - for now, just allow the ideas and information to come to you.
10/13 ~ Venus (relationships) ~sextile~ Pluto (transformation):
This energy deepens all emotions. Friendships and love relationships become much deeper and more intense, not to mention any physical (sexual) experience. There is nothing superficial about this energy, nor will you be satisfied with any superficial exchange, with friends or lovers. It is best to try to understand the depth of your emotions even if you are unable to express them outwardly. Your emotional intensity may be at an unusually high level, so be sure to surround yourself with people who love you unconditionally or try to be alone and just reflect on what you're feeling.
10/13 ~ Sun (core-identity) ~conjunct~ Saturn (responsibility):
This week is full of energy that is “forcing” us to become the people we have said we want to be, or at least begin the process with some commitment, passion and dedication. This particular energy is great for building the foundation for success. The wheels that get set in motion this week are creating your future, for better or worse - so pay attention! This energy makes you focus on your career and brings up either new responsibilities or reminds you to finish what you have started. Don’t postpone your good any longer! Just do it, as they say. This is great energy for organizing and planning, creating order, and organizing your Self and others. If you don’t “do the work” that you know you are supposed to be doing at the moment, you will only feel worse. So don’t delay anything that can, and probably should, be done sooner versus later. This energy can also make you feel a little lonely or depressed, don’t give in to that. There is a time to be out and about and time to get down to business. And right now, you have probably put off way too much that is only contributing to your stress levels. Make a list of things to do, prioritize them and start checking them off.
10/14 ~ Venus (love, art & beauty) ~oppose~ Jupiter (expansion):
This is a great energy for pleasure, joy and satisfaction - if you don't over-indulge. You won't feel like working as much as you will feel like playing today. And you may very well enjoy activities and other people but remember to watch the excesses. If you overdo it today, you may need another day to recover. With a little forethought and discipline, this is a very enjoyable, pleasant energy. If you are an artist or in a creative mood, this energy will expand your work immensely.
