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: October 27 – November 2, 2019
10/27 ~ SCORPIO New Moon:
This Scorpio New Moon is really powerful for *seeding* your deepest, soul-level desires. This is an annual opportunity to return to the Infinite Void (conception point) and set some completely new intentions. There is also additional energy available at this time from your Invisible Team of Support from your own Angels, Ancestors & Animal Spirit Guides who walk with you now & always. This New Moon opens a portal of sorts, one that allows us to align with the ultimate power of transformation, transcending the current form, on Individual Sun/Moon levels, as well as Social/Collective levels. And because the form is being seeded at this time, you may not exactly know what the logistics (3D) are, but you can connect with the *Essence* of what you want to co-create ~ the essence of what you want to feel ~ the essence of what you want your Earthly Experience to be! Connect to that *Essence* ~ Connect to the level of authentic power that your individual system can handle at this time ~ Connect to that which you want to bring to Life, that which you want to bring from Invisible Form (Scorpio), in to Visible Form (Taurus) in a way that serves you and benefits others, while harming none. Then, do your Power Wishes/Scorpio Intentions around initiating another Annual Cycle of Transformation & Manifestation. We are expanding the possibilities as we speak, that enable us to combine our deepest core values with our most expanded vision for humanity! One.soul.at.a.time.
This New Moon asks us to get *congruent* with our inner & outer selves and renew our commitment to positive change. All of this speaks to the new realms emerging in place of all that has crumbled in recent years. Many sprouts of your hard work are breaking ground, and if not, I suspect that a clearing is in the works so it won’t be long (hang in there). As you’re setting your New Moon intentions, consider how you *feel* about Pluto issues: death, power, sex and money (among other things). Renew your dedication to holding your own structure, owning your Inner Authority and directing your personal power in new & better ways. All of that is getting an upgrade thanks to the current alignments in the sky pattern.
So I would add here ~ that it is also the time of year when we do the most readings & consulting with the Ancestors because it is the time we ask for clarity on all that has gone before so that we can make the best decisions about how to go forward, with their blessing. There is an Underworld Journey of sorts, that is available & customized for each of us but I’m happy to guide & support you as you navigate your own. I am finding that I have to *schedule* integration time these days but it’s so rich & potent – at this *conception point* – that I don’t want to miss out on that energy either! So feel free to Reach Out if you feel called and we’ll connect in Sacred Time & Divine Order.
10/27 ~ Mars (anger) ~square~ Saturn (restriction):
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 later, 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, not necessarily the reality, so better to ask yourself if you somehow 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.
10/28 ~ Sun (core essential self) ~oppose~ Uranus (liberation):
Be ready for surprises with this energy. Your routine may be disrupted, by you and/or others. Now is not the time to be practical, nor is it time to make any huge decisions. What it is best for is experimenting with alternative modes of expression. A part of you undergoes a mini-transformation under this energy’s influence because it wakes up a part of you that is requiring expression now. You may not recognize it right away, but you have changed! You are a new “you” and it’s time that you acknowledged that fact, so everyone else can too.
10/30 ~ Mercury (ideas, thoughts & concepts) ~conjunct~ Venus (values, priorities & resources):
This energy encourages you to see the Divine Order or the unifying theme running through the events of your life ~ good, bad & indifferent as well as past, present & future. This is an initiation of new values around communication, self-expression and the value of your ideas. You may finally be able to express ideas that have been percolating in your head for a while now, or some people say “I love you” at this time, or articulate their feelings in deeper, more expressive ways. It’s really *juicy* for your Inner Artist, this is the beginning of expressing your creative ideas in altogether new & different ways than ever before. Allow your Imagination to free-flow. Play with ideas with no attachment to outcome. Take advantage and explore all that this energy stirs within you, but don’t give in to over-thinking/processing things. These connections are richer, giving you access to deeper personal growth & development through a new understanding of how all the events of your life work together for good, ultimately. You can see the necessity of certain challenges and clearly see your own personal mastery thus far. Celebrate and choose to create some new thought patterns that integrate and reflect more beauty throughout your life.
10/31 ~ Mercury Retro in SCORPIO (Dir: 11/20 ~ Into SAG: 12/9):
Mercury lingering in Scorpio is asking us all to do a little processing & integration in that Area of Life (House). It is time to process things in a different way, look at life from a different perspective and review the last quarter, 3-months, minimum. Mercury Retrograde is best for activating different filters for everything, detach and consider it personal research. I’d remind you here that Mercury retrogrades 3-4 times per year. It’s an excellent time to turn all your inquiry & expression INWARD and reflect on how your Mental Body is doing. It is a delicious practice to get into scheduling your personal processing times to coincide with a Mercury Retrograde, especially when in Signs that directly affect you because then it is personal. This year, my Pisces, Cancer & Scorpio Babies will have some extra processing to do but for the rest of us, the process still happens, but you want to look to the Houses in your chart to find the Areas of Life being activated for you personally. It’s not listed anymore but I still do a Special Mercury Retro reading if you ever want to dive deeper with me. 2020 is going to be a Water/Air combo and 2021 will be All Air like 2019 was All Water, which also happens about every 5-6 years when Mercury will activate one Element so you can loosely track your own mental evolution. This year, 2019, was primarily in the Water Signs. March in Pisces, July in Cancer, with a dip to 4* Leo, and now, Nov in Scorpio. The last time we had a Water Year with Mercury Retrograde was 2013, so you may want to gauge your emotional maturity over that time, the cultivation (and execution) of your ideas, thoughts & concepts, what you’ve learned – and in this case, Scorpio: what have you learned about your own personal power to create your world? What do you think about your sex life at this time? How are you making yourself more valuable to the team so you can establish more financial stability? What mental attitude has run its course and needs to die so a new mental attitude can live and thrive in real time?
Things to remember about Mercury Retro in SCORPIO:
~ It is a conception point in some way, shape or form. You’re conceiving a new way of thinking, perceiving & processing what you’re learning as you navigate the year.
~ Shadow work of any kind is deeply supported & particularly fruitful under this influence.
~ It’s time to activate your Inner Detective and choose to “investigate” (with no judgment on what you discover) – you are merely gathering information on your own mind, mental body, mentality, how you think, express yourself and process the world around you.
~ It’s time to communicate on a Soul Level and connect with your deepest emotions, face your fears, research taboos, dig out secrets that are growing toxic and renew your connection to your own Soul.
~ Here we sometimes access our own unique RAW TRUTH (which is more/less challenging depending on your individual Nature) – but remember, you are not only uncovering the dark, negative ideas, thoughts & concepts, but once certain things are brought into the light of conscious awareness, they can be transformed or transmuted so the energy is liberated and freed up to be useful elsewhere. So too will you find your own buried treasure, hidden potential or untapped resources you have yet to consider.
~ Any time in the Scorpio realms we have to acknowledge your own Shadow. I suggest giving it something to do so it doesn’t undermine your evolution in toxic, repetitive patterns.
~ This is a good time to reclaim the power of your mind. What are you allowing to influence your thoughts & ideas? It’s time to re-set to your original blueprint and start fresh in some way.
~ Remember the creative and destructive power of language. It is time to renew your language or learn a new language altogether.
Finally, we have the upcoming Scorpio Gate of Power (11/7), also known as Access the Ancestors, All Souls Day, Day of the Dead, Samhain and many other names around the world in cultures that celebrate the Life/Death/Life process. This is the time when we honor the Death aspect of that never-ending cycle. It is an important aspect of Life and it is my favorite time of year, in the Northern Hemisphere. And even in the Southern Hemisphere, it may be Spring but it is still Scorpio time, Oct/Nov – so we can all honor this season as a season of change & renewal.
