12/18 :: Mercury Rx (learning & mind) ~trine~ Jupiter (education & consciousness):
(2 of 3: 12/7 :: 12/18 :: 1/19)
This energetic phase offers a splendid opportunity to broaden your horizons, delve into new learning endeavors, or enroll in a class or workshop.
It is a moment to lay the groundwork for future plans and begin organizing your aspirations. However, you might find yourself feeling less tethered to discipline and more drawn to creative impulses. While this creative surge at the outset is beneficial, eventually, focus and discipline becomes essential to anchor your blossoming ideas, thoughts, or concepts into reality. If you remain self-aware, awake, and attentive, you’ll be able to naturally discern, see and seize the opportunities as they present themselves. What might seem like luck is truly a reflection of your alignment with the universal forces, your presence within your own body, a positive mindset, and, ultimately, trust in your own instincts. Remember, it’s about practice; perfection is not the goal. Cultivating optimism and perceiving opportunities in every experience act as magnets for positivity while naturally repelling negativity, steering you toward your desired destination. Seize this auspicious energy to forge connections that align with your current aspirations and intentions in life.
12/20 :: Vesta Rx RE-Enters GEMINI (until 3.31.2024):
Vesta embarks on a year-long journey from June 2023 to June 2024, focusing its recalibration efforts on your Gemini/Cancer Departments. This cycle of recalibration occurs once every four years and carries significant transformative energy. Looking back, I delved into the past occurrences: Vesta’s last Retrograde through ALL Gemini was in 2012-13; similarly, the last Retrograde solely in Cancer was in 2005-06, and the combination of Gemini/Cancer last occurred in 1994-95, marking a pivotal era in my own sacred journey.
Vesta symbolizes the pure, sacred essence of the individual—an aspect capable of deep focus and complete dedication to a person or project, sometimes at the expense of other aspects of life. This cosmic force seeks to prompt a collective initiation toward making Gemini’s aspects of curiosity, learning, and communication sacred and essential. It is an opportune phase to lighten up personally and you may discover additional options. Moreover, it’s a time to reassess and realign language, acknowledging the profound power inherent in our words—whether thought, spoken, or written. This recalibration offers a chance to rewrite your personal story, integrating a narrative enriched by a supportive network of friends and allies who champion your aspirations and sacred endeavors.
Transitioning through Cancer, Vesta turns the spotlight on the sanctity of safety and emotional security. It signals an ideal period to re-establish personal self-care practices. This energy illuminates any instances where self-neglect may have occurred in favor of caring for others—a direction that fails to harness the potential of this profound cosmic force that seeks to reconnect you with your body, sensuality, and unique individual rhythms. This phase heralds a new cycle for cultivating healthy self-care practices, nurturing creative endeavors, and creating space as if you have already achieved your goals.
Vesta‘s lingering influence directly impacts both Cardinal and Mutable Signs—Aries/Libra, Cancer/Capricorn, as well as Gemini/Sagittarius and Virgo/Pisces. This cosmic journey deeply activates two-thirds of our chart, offering a potent and rare connection to our Sacred Selves. Those bearing Gemini/Cancer energy undergo a profound initiation into their Sacred Self, a rarity in celestial alignments. Reflect upon who you were and what you held as “sacred” back in 1994-95—a time that converges with other cosmic themes from the early 1990’s that are back now. I’ll provide reminders along this journey. Best of luck on this transformative voyage of your Sacred Self!

12/21 :: Winter Solstice :: Sacred Season :: Conceiving 2024:
Winter Solstice welcomes the New Solar Year and Initiates the Return of the Light. Things appear dormant on the surface; however, much life is beginning to develop beneath the surface, in preparation for Spring. Gradually, as Mother begins to withdraw her energy from one side of the Earth, she simultaneously begins to feed & nourish the other side. Nature begins to slowly reawaken and the Cycle of Life continues.
It is still a time of relative darkness and limited mobility because it is a Conception Point, so you are most supported for working behind the scenes, communing with other realms, honoring darkness and silence, while receiving, taking in & processing new information, nourishment & replenishment. It is time to clarify your intention for the new year and prepare for those necessary first steps, new choices & wise actions that facilitate forward movement.
This Sacred Season is about what you *feel* on the deepest levels is right for you, personally. As you create space to move from that Center within you, that inner core stability of knowing your Truth & Purpose, it becomes automatic and you become a more dynamic participant in Life. It’s time to clarify your overall purpose and create the container that will support & protect that goal or purpose, for the entire year.
It’s time to take the past year’s ‘fruits of your labor’ and put them to good use.
It’s time to set your intentions for what you want to create, within & without.
It’s time to strategize about the future, while building on what is solid & worthy.
It’s time to get serious & practical about what you want and design a plan for success.
Things to Contemplate :: At the Turn of Season:
- What do you want to accomplish in 1-year?
- Set One Tangible & One Intangible Goal for Your Self
- How will you define progress on Monthly basis? Quarterly basis? Semi-Annual basis? Annual basis?
- Break Your Goals into Manageable Pieces or Stages of Development to Avoid Anxiety & Overwhelm
- What completed, ended or died in the last year that has actually cleared space & freed up energy for you?
- Give Your Self Credit for Completions & Get Excited About the New Possibilities
12/21 :: Venus (values) ~oppose~ Uranus (freedom):
When Uranus enters the picture, it becomes the wild card, making it quite the challenge to foresee how things will actually unfold. Presently, there is a dynamic tension between what you hold as apparent, common values and the expression of your distinct, individual self. Venus, representing relationships, may usher in the beginning of an unconventional relationship or unveil something extraordinary within an established one. This isn’t about categorizing it as “good” or “bad” but rather acknowledging an unforeseeable shift or sudden realization, calling for compromise and integration. This energy harmonizes beautifully when your personal truth and values align. However, if they are not in-sync, it tends to be immensely disruptive. Being open, flexible, and seeking a win-win scenario for all involved is crucial amidst this unfolding. Remember, navigating this period requires openness, adaptability, and a commitment to finding solutions that honor everyone’s well-being.
12/21 :: Mercury Rx (communication) ~sextile~ Saturn (responsibility):
(2 of 3: 12/2 :: 12/21 :: 1/18)
This energetic phase offers a valuable opportunity to objectively observe what requires alteration, repair, or grounding within your life or environment. Sometimes, this energy can lead to feelings of despondency or apathy, but a more empowering approach involves squarely facing what needs attention and persevering with the tasks that you have already initiated. You might sense a pull to organize your home or workplace or feel drawn to participate in a class or workshop aligning with your current aspirations. Maintain focus without becoming overly serious—remember, balance is key in all endeavors. Focusing solely on scarcity and restrictions can lead to feelings of being overwhelmed and sometimes a sense of powerlessness, which isn’t the essence of this energy. Instead, it is an invitation to discard any overly optimistic perspectives, engage in thoughtful contemplation, attend to the finer details, take inventory, evaluate the worth of your ideas, and make adjustments accordingly. Embrace this time as an opportunity for clear-sightedness, acknowledging what requires attention and taking intentional steps toward improvement. It is about cultivating a balanced approach that considers both the challenges and the potential for growth.
12/22 :: Mercury Rx (communication & self-expression) ~conjunct~ Sun (core essential Self & Source energy):
This compelling energy urges you to express yourself across multiple layers of existence. Communication stands at the forefront, yet it is crucial that it flows both ways—a genuine exchange of ideas. As you step into this fresh cycle of self-expression, you will be able to harness potent energy, that is likely to leave a lasting impact or create a meaningful difference in the lives of others, should the need arise. It is an opportune moment for travel, whether physical or within the realms of your mind through visualization, or even exploring new facets in your immediate surroundings. Exploring uncharted paths can reveal unforeseen discoveries. This energetic influx brings forth a torrent of information; staying alert is paramount. For those grounded and organized, this phase may yield well-deserved recognition from others—a testament to the individual efforts you have poured into your endeavors. Embrace this influx of energy, allow it to guide you toward new experiences and insights, while remaining open to the flow of communication and exchange that aligns with your authentic self-expression.
12/23 :: Mercury Rx RE-Enters SAG (until 1.13.2024):
As Mercury continues its Retrograde motion, retracing its steps back into Sagittarius, it beckons us to delve deeper into philosophical inquiries and seek the essence & meaning of the year that we have just traversed. Now, the Messenger Planet resides in a reflective, contemplative space, moving deliberately backward, curious about how to improve & expand your consciousness. This invites us to assimilate all the wisdom garnered in the past year, integrating it within ourselves as embodied wisdom for the forthcoming new year. Once you have embraced and assimilated the varied facets of your life that have evolved over the past 3, 6, 9, or 12 months, it is time to seek the potential waiting to be birthed from this rich tapestry. What visionary ideas can you ground, nurture, and expand upon in the new year? This is a time that supports the exploration of completely new ideas, diverse beliefs and the stretching of your dreams beyond the ordinary limits. Envision a larger story, both for yourself and for the world. Embrace this prolonged phase within Sagittarius to weave and nurture this new narrative. Dream with a breadth and depth that surpasses your usual imaginings and expand your imagination!

The Karmic Tools Weekly Forecast by Kelly M Beard 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.
