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: November 5 – 11, 2017

11/5 ~ Mercury enters Sag (until 1.11.2018):

… to assist you with your review for the last 3-9 months. It is the final review of the year and in Sag, supports the editing of the Old Story and writing of (or preparing to write) a completely New Story going forward in 2018. It’s an excellent time to process & integrate all that you learned about your Self, others & the world throughout the year 2017. Clarify fact from fiction, truth from perception and wisdom from information and then tap into your own vision & faith to start living your most authentic life.
*NOTE* — Retro: 12/3 ~ Direct: 12/22 ~ into Capricorn: 1/11/2018

11/8 ~ SCORPIO Gate of Power:

This completes the 8 Sacred Seasons of the Solar Year. You’ve done all you can do for the last 10+ months and now you must surrender. You have been intuitively guided and completely supported the whole time … whether you were aware of it or not. The Angels, Ancestors and Animal Spirit Guides should be honored and will be more accessible for communing with at this time of the year. You can ask for their guidance on the lesson & purpose of certain events or experiences of the past year and/or you can ask for guidance on how to proceed during the coming year because during this time of year, reflection on the past and rumination on the future commingle.

It is a time to ‘Honor the Dead’ which can apply to friends and family who are no longer on this plane of existence with us, though their essence never dies and often becomes more accessible at this time. Or it can also apply to your Being, your creative projects, cycles in your life that are now complete. After completion, clearing & release, it is an especially good time to sit with the empty space for a period of time. This is an infinitely potent time in-between ~ a place, also referred to as the “Sweet Spot” – that very thin membrane between *Seed & New Life*. Plant your seeds of the future during this dark time and be still, listen, invite Life. This 6-week period prior to Winter Solstice has the longest nights, implying rest, work behind closed doors and moving through any personal darkness. It is time to restore strength and prepare for the Light’s return, when things will again begin to quicken.

*SCORPIO* represents the most potent time of the year …
Scorpio as ruled by Mars asks, “What do you deeply desire?“
Scorpio as ruled by Pluto asks, “What are you willing to sacrifice to have that desire fulfilled?“

Are you willing to … *SACRIFICE* …
~ skepticism … for critical thinking? ~
~ fear … for love? ~
~ doubt … for faith? ~
~ poverty consciousness … for abundance? ~
~ groundless low self-esteem … for knowing who you are? ~
~ false pride … for true confidence? ~

This is the time when the life/death/life cycle is at work, highlighting the area of your life where you may experience an ending and subsequent new beginning; this is also the most potent energy to create with, so be co-creative, pro-active and watch your thoughts & inner dialogues. This also represents karma, which can be actual karma (results of your actions, choices & decisions) or simply the results of your Fall Harvest ~ all that you have created for the year and how well it will serve your needs thru the Winter into the new year.

11/9 ~ Sun (core identity) ~sextile~ Pluto (transformation):

This is a healthy, positive, transformative energy. You will have access to energy that will help you change your current circumstance for the better and/or clear up an issue that has been challenging you for a while now. It’s great for purifying, cleaning & clearing your personal space, as well as organizing your life in general. You may have to examine the “big picture” to see where an adjustment, for the good of all involved, is necessary. If you’re not feeling up to working on outer issues, this also gives you the opportunity to do some introspective thinking and deep self-reflection. Superficial once-overs will not do, you must address the root cause for where you find yourSelf at this time in your life and decide if it is working for you or against you.

11/11 ~ Saturn (structure & reality) ~trine~ Uranus (liberation & freedom):

This is a somewhat rare, potent and generally positive activation between two very different planets. Saturn rules structure, boundaries, limits, time and building a foundation, while Uranus is all about radical change, innovative ideas, forward-thinking & (often sudden) awakening of consciousness. One wants to stick with the tried ‘n true, while the other is always trying to improve things by pushing beyond those original ideas and expanding them in brilliant ways. Saturn will make an appointment, while Uranus always shows up unannounced. But if you think back to 2008-2010 when they were in opposition to one another, you may remember some extremes between the old and the new trying to find that middle ground that honors what is stable about the original, but allows for creative change that, while disruptive initially, leads to great things we would never consider if we didn’t think outside the box a little. Because this is an easy angle, you basically have access to a delicious combo of patience & dedication, along with revolutionary new ideas & positive change. However, the caveat with all trines is that it’s going so smoothly that you don’t consciously co-create. You don’t want to do that with these two because they directly affect both your reality and your freedom. If you had a hard time with the opposition in 2008-2010 or the square from 1999-2000, then look at this one as earned blessings and take advantage of creating order out of the chaos stirred up from those years. If you take advantage of this opportunity, then the next set of challenges (square in 2021) will go more smoothly and be more productive. If not, you may have heard me say ‘pay now or pay double later’ which would apply to this.
