NOTE from Kelly ~ I am posting this FINAL BLOG HERE on the free wordpress site and I would like to redirect you to my original website which has now been updated for 2019 ~ KarmicTools.com. Please update your Favorites/Bookmarks with new links. The only two staying on the free wordpress will be our FREE Events Archives & Blog Archives, both can be quite relevant when researching past cycles when they circle back around again.

For those 123 of you who signed up to ‘follow via email’ so that you are notified of a new post, you all are on a list that is controlled by wordpress, not me. I have created a new list on my updated website and I have migrated 70 of the 123 emails – there are 53 that I could not locate in wordpress so you may have to re-join on my new website. I will send a quick *Welcome* to confirm that you made the transfer, however, if you do not receive that note from me in the month of JANUARY 2019, then you will have to sign up to follow my blog again, with the new link HERE.

Let me also remind you that my blog is fairly impersonal and where I generally post my forecasts, planetary updates & astro-articles. Beyond that, to connect with me more directly, I have a Newsletter eList where I send more personal notes to my Power Circle Community which was established in 1999 when I created my first online group. If you’re not on that list or want to update your profile, Click HERE to be part of the Inner Circle.

As for the BLOG, your reward for migrating to the new list is 3-fold: (1) my blog posts will no longer have unpleasant, random advertising AND (2) you won’t be hearing from a wordpress-robot. Because (3) now, when you get notified of a new blog post, you know it came from me personally, and you are more than welcome to REPLY and let me know if/when the Weekly Forecast resonates. (You couldn’t do that with wordpress, except through public comments.)

I am so grateful for YOU – my readers & subscribers – because without you, I’d be creating in a vacuum and that is no fun at all! You all inspired me to put the Weekly Forecast on my KarmicTools YouTube Channel and that has been a really fun experience for me too. So please check out my updated website, surf around & let me know what you think. It actually is temporary as I have a new *Tech Angel* assisting with a new look and layout so I’m sure it will evolve again at least one more time. Thank you again for your continued support!

1/29 ~ Mercury (communication & self-expression) ~conjunct~ Sun (core essential Self & Source energy):
This is the beginning of a new cycle of personal self-expression. You may feel the urge to express yourself in new ways, and on many different levels. Communication may also be a focus, just make sure it is reciprocated, meaning two-way and not just one-sided. You may have access to some potent energy that can light up your aura and infuse your goals with passion that can (and probably will) make quite an impression on others nearby. This is also a good time for learning, exploring & any literal or imaginative travel. If you can’t travel far, then perhaps within your own area or nearby parks, and pay attention for things you may have never noticed before now!

1/31 ~ Saturn (reality & responsibility) ~sextile~ Neptune (dreams & spirituality):
This is a Social and a Collective planet coming together which happens over a much longer stretch of time, however, it is still relevant for us as individuals and is a supportive energy that helps us make our dreams a reality! The last time these two danced together was in 2015-2016 in a Sag/Pisces Square – which is a push to grow in our belief system and our spirituality, a push to learn & expand as an individual and still honor the whole and it was Fire & Water working together, facilitating a purification of sorts. Those years got really *REAL* in a lot of ways, for a lot of people. Reality versus Illusion and a growth moment where things inevitably changed. How’s it been going for you ever since 2015-16?

Now, they are together activating a major opportunity and working via Earth & Water to create something real and meaningful for you personally. Saturn in Capricorn is restructuring our lives on many levels and revealing what we are and are not responsible for at this time. While Neptune in Pisces is reuniting us with our primordial oceanic womb-like Mother, out of which ALL life springs and eternally bonds us all together. If one life or species suffers, they ALL suffer. So, this week’s activation is really good for deepening your dedication to a spiritual practice that fills you with inspiration, clarity & inner peace so that you can navigate whatever life throws your way. This is the best time to work on your biggest dream because Saturn helps you create a step-by-step process of manifestation and keeps you present to the work that has to be done in order for you to embody this new vision completely. This is an excellent time to develop your relationship to your Council of Elders, Ancestors & Guides and remember your magical roots! A reminder that all that you need, desire & deserve is sourced within you and it’s your job to unlock it all this lifetime and see how it all works and what it really means for your individual purpose for being here, a Spirit in human form.
Relevant Reflections:
I go into more detail of the larger cycle of Saturn & Neptune HERE during their last interaction, which was in 2015-2016. It too will illuminate more clues as to what you are doing and where you can gain some traction in your manifesting realms.

2/1 ~ Mars (lower will) ~square~ Pluto (Higher will):
This is a test of what you are made of, on the deepest core level, and will require surrender and a degree of self-awareness to navigate. This energy challenges you to evolve and will make you want to push through any obstacles but you must be careful not to be so aggressive that you are stepping on anyone to get where you’re going. This is a potent energy that can facilitate major transformation in your life if you know who you are, what you want and what you are willing to sacrifice to get there – that includes parts of your Self that may need to shift in order for you to be more effective in life. This energy can bring power struggles, within or without, so be mindful because this energy is affecting everyone at this time. This is the time to tie up any loose ends if you are close to beginning anew. If you do not finish what you already have in the works, it may get in the way of things you want to do in the future. It is time to align your true inner power with balanced outer actions & choices.

2/2 ~ Venus (love, finances & relationships) ~trine~ Uranus (freedom & liberation):
This energy is likely to bring a little excitement into your life, one way or another. It is a good time to do something different, try something new & consciously put your Self in situations where you have to improvise or think on your feet. We are in times of breaking old patterns and re-setting them in more positive, effective ways. You can still live your true values & priorities, but something has changed within you. This blessing from the Cosmos allows you to align with more personal authenticity, which in turn is infused into all that you love & treasure. Relationships will have an unusual energy to them. An established relationship may get shaken up or sparkle with some extra “spice” or a new relationship begun under this influence may be stimulating & unusual but probably short-lived too. This is not a bad thing! It’s actually perfect for improvising and experimenting with new ideas & expressions to see what you actually respond to, what your Heart aligns with and responds to. Use this energy to soak up some good energy & rare wisdom from those who are unique, from those who do things differently and live life to the fullest!

Note from Kelly:
I went looking for a good full moon pic and found the above. What is amazing is that it is literally 1-year ago and the Leo Super/Full Moon Lunar Eclipse from 1.31.2018 and now we have the final Leo eclipse this week.

1/20 ~ Venus (love, finances & relationships) ~square~ Neptune (illusions & delusions):
This energy is great for creative flow. If you are artistically inclined in any way, you will have access to an energy that may allow you to create something amazing. Dig deep and allow your Self to free-flow! This energy can also challenge relationships (personal or professional) to ‘keep it real’ in some way and ones which are not on a true, solid foundation are likely to dissolve under this influence. When Neptune is involved, we see life through a completely different kind of lens, often seeing the potential rather than the reality of the situation. Detach & Trust. 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. This activation is just helping you align your true values & priorities with the vision in your mind & heart, but you will have to expand your consciousness in some way, follow your inner compass and take practical steps going forward.

1/21 ~ 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 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 more likely your perception than a reality, but is there any way that you 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.

1/21 ~ LEO Super/Full Moon Lunar Eclipse:
The Leo Full Moon often illuminates the discrepancies between who you are, who you think you are and who you are perceived to be. Because it is a Super Moon, you may feel it more intensely and because it is a Lunar Eclipse, you get to break a larger pattern, something that may also resonate with the years: 2008-09 & 1998-99. You are supported to do a personal (and major) release with this eclipse. Think 6-months to a year ago, what is culminating or completing now? Think 9- and 18-years ago for what has integrated within your Heart and how have you matured in your relationships. The Leo Full Moon reveals Self-Love issues and where you have been operating from the Outside-In, when Inside-Out is more effective. It may also expose where your ego has gone unchecked and/or where your Inner Child has been neglected and is now *cranky*. Play is part of being Human and something many have forgotten how to do. We must practice integrating joy into our daily lives! It is more fun & interesting to play with a variety of ideas and possible roles of who you are evolving in to (or would like to over the next 6-12 mos) and your place of service within any chosen Community. In what capacity can you shine and share your Light going forward? Use this final eclipse portal (in the Leo/Aquarius series) to release an old self or old desire of the heart so that a new, evolved version of YOU can be birthed to bless the world. It’s time to release anything that doesn’t truly express who you are so the real you can shine brighter!

1/22 ~ Venus (values & priorities) ~conjunct~ Jupiter (truth & story):
This is an extremely powerful energy that brings the two *benefactors* together to initiate a new cycle that makes you very mentally “present” to the fact that both your values and your truth are shifting. This energy encourages you to improve your life in some way. You can also connect to material abundance & wealth of all kinds when these two get together like this. This is usually a pleasant shift because it is about expanding your sense of authentic beauty, as in nature & the interrelatedness of all living things. There’s also an energy of enthusiasm around new or growing relationships which attracts more positive energy. This is the best time to be creative and expect miracles!

1/23 ~ Mercury (lower mind & ideas) ~square~ Uranus (Higher Mind & awakening):
This energy challenges you to expand your mind or consciousness in a way, pushing you to think differently and respond to information in new ways. Uranus brings sudden ah-ha moments, personal awareness and radical new ideas, which is great for you adventurous souls who thrive on change and new ideas. However, if you are personally attached to your routine and things ‘going as planned’, then this energy can cause aggravation and tax your nervous system because things will seem sudden (even though it is more likely that they have already been brewing under the surface for some time now). You will have to adjust and be more open & mentally flexible than usual. You may not be able to control the excessive mental activity or information-overload coming in, but hopefully you can direct it a bit. It’s good to activate or clean your personal filters by taking some time in nature to process things at your own pace and generally clear your head. This can be a very inspiring & creative time, so try to tune into that, while keeping in mind that anything you begin or get into, may require a review later so you can check over the details of your revelations (or creations). You’re just cracking the surface, this is all about the revelation or awakening, you will eventually have to figure out the logistics or effective actions necessary to bring your ideas into form.

1/25 ~ Mars (energy) ~trine~ Jupiter (enthusiasm):
This energy is generally positive as you are combining your energy & desires with an expansion of consciousness. It’s especially good for anything physical and bodes well for outcomes to any competition. You will be channeling more energy than usual so be sure to check in with your body and stay grounded. Jupiter often brings blessings that others may perceive as ‘luck’ but it is more of an alignment between inner Self & outer reality. Even if things are hazy or crazy, do your best to visualize success and put your Self in the picture ; -) You will have a great overall perspective of the “big picture” and can plan accordingly. The only caveat with this energy is to avoid being OVERLY confident where you feel invincible. Be confident, not cocky. This energy is very good for knowing what you need and being capable of making succinct decisions about the course which will get you there. Calculated risks are the name of the game!

of Kelly’s Weekly Forecast

Note from Kelly:
This is another potent week. Despite chaotic, collective madness, you must take some time this week to clear your own mind, do a data dump and try to hear your Self think. It is your Soul Self that wants to reach you this week and your Soul Self cares little about politics or the rest, your Soul Self just cares about you – you and your individual evolution. Mercury is the star this week, linking up with Saturn & Pluto, suggesting that if you can transform your thinking, you will naturally transcend your current reality. The other activations this week are equally important. The rare Jupiter/Neptune alignment is going to happen three times over, so pace yourself by noticing what is coming up for you around your faith & belief system at this time. Is it serving you or holding you back from evolving to the next level? When an activation happens 3-times like this, there is usually a catalyst, like our New Vision for 2019, then there is a crisis of faith or a burst-your-bubble moment (when you find out something you believed is actually not true) and then there is the revelations by the third time that, hopefully, leave your faith in your Self and a Higher Power both stronger & wiser for the experience. And ultimately, that Sun/Uranus contact suggests that we are ready, as individuals, to do things a completely new & different way. Honor that impulse. Improvise often. Ask (your Self) lots of questions, don’t take anything at face value but go deeper and ask your Self what you are *feeling* and then, go with your gut.

1/13 ~ Mercury (thought process) ~conjunct~ Saturn (definition of reality):
This energy is excellent for any important project that requires your undivided attention. If you’ve got a vision and have already outlined how to manifest it, now is the time to really fill in the blanks – flesh it out – bring it to life! Do the work! If you do not channel this energy toward patiently and methodically taking the necessary steps to get to the next level, then it can manifest as frustration and feel as if you are not doing what you know in your heart you are supposed to be doing at this time. It leads to negative thinking and self-sabotage. A better expression would be to not think of the things that can go wrong, but entertain the possibility that every door opens and all paths lead to your goal, no matter how they appear at the moment.

1/13 ~ Jupiter (Truth/Belief) ~square~ Neptune (Faith/Spirituality):
(1 of 3: 1/13 ~ 6/16 ~ 9/21)
This combination gives us access to miracles, if you believe in them! But for those who are not grounded in their bodies or clear in their minds, this combo can be crazy-making, it seems to agitate some who can never pinpoint the source of the agitation. It’s time to pay close attention to what you think, say & believe in any given situation and constantly clarify it for your Self so that you don’t get too far off-track following your Monkey Mind. It’s a time when your faith & spirituality may be tested to grow as well, but all the more reason to believe in good things being possible too.

In general, these two are somewhat related because they both have to do with what we believe to be true or possible but they seem to also create a possibility for “too much of a good thing” ~ over-idealizing (Neptune) ~ over-extending (Jupiter) along with faith & charity in the wrong direction. Squares always create the necessary friction within to make you want to grow & develop skill so you can change something in a fairly tangible way. These two are like a lightning storm whose flashes enable you to catch “glimpses” of your new reality as the illusion of this old reality “cracks” revealing its inability to withstand the upcoming changes. Hopefully, it will spur you on to integrating a little more magic in your mundane, as well as manifesting your ideals in more practical/3D ways. By recognizing what you no longer believe, a new vision begins to emerge, though it still needs to be nurtured & cultivated. The test that squares bring, push us to grow and develop in a way that moves things along in a good way. When a Social Planet (Jupiter) hits a Collective Planet (Neptune) then large numbers of humans evolve around the same time. Additionally, if you have the Signs activated in your Individual chart, then it becomes “personal” for you (in this case, Sag/Pisces). In general, these energies coming together should help you develop a Truth/Belief System of your own, while still creating the Daily Practice that will animate and support it going forward. This energy will activate your generosity of spirit, so make sure to give to those worthy of your investment and try not to be foolish, deluded or tricked. Use this combo to expand your consciousness and practice what you preach.

1/14 ~ Mercury (expression) ~sextile~ Neptune (dreams):
This is a great energy for imagination, consciousness and intuition, however, keeping a good filter to distinguish between your own perceptions and what you are picking up from those around you will be crucial to your success. Your mind may be tuned-in to a different channel than usual this week and you may have to rely on other senses, like your feelings or intuitive hunches. You may be very perceptive, picking up on the thoughts & feelings of others, which if/when you are clear (and your filters are working) can yield some surprising revelations about where their consciousness is, at this time (for better or worse) and reflect an aspect of your own consciousness that you may not have been aware of. Try to avoid work that requires any attention to detail. Allow your creativity to flow freely without censoring what comes through you at this time. You can organize it later. This is the energy to explore, create and free-flow!

1/18 ~ Venus (feminine & receiving) ~trine~ Mars (masculine & giving):
Venus rules your values & priorities where your relationship with love & money are concerned. It is the Sacred Feminine within that innately knows how to co-create with nature, and what to cultivate & nurture to full development. Mars rules your desire nature and your Inner Sacred Masculine, which is responsible for getting your ideas into the world, maintaining your personal boundaries and negotiating on your own behalf. When both are channeling through you in a balanced way, like now, what you create and how you move through the world becomes a beautiful dance or, at least, a much more interesting story. The trine is a blessing of ease & grace, an easy-going energy that paves the way for balance & reciprocity and encourages independence within the context of relationships. Communication is usually smooth at this time and exchanges can be mutually beneficial. Any relationships started under this influence have a good chance at success whether personal or professional.

1/18 ~ Mercury (mind, thoughts & ideas) ~conjunct~ Pluto (purification & transformation):
This activation takes you into the depths of your own mind & consciousness, deepening all communications. You may find yourself obsessing over something, either by yourself or in an attempt to convey something to another. Superficial, quick once-overs, trying to keep things ‘light’ will not likely be possible with this energy. You may feel determined to dig deeper until you get to the core or base issue. It’s good for soul-searching when it’s motivated by a genuine desire to know the truth, rather than to evade it. It’s not-so-good when you’re obsessing over someone or something which no longer serves you (or your Highest good). The challenge with this energy is the tendency to be really intense and locked-in on your own point of view, which is no less valid, but often this type of mental intensity blinds you to something obvious that you overlooked because you were not being objective, but being driven by much deeper (possibly unconscious) emotions. Your intensity is capable of influencing others but be aware of the difference between sharing information and trying to “convince, convert or cajole” others, as that can naturally attract challenges & opposition. Remember, the opposite can also be true, where you are on the receiving end of this intense energy from someone else (trying to convince you of something). The best way to use this energy, as it doesn’t really last that long, is to turn that intensity toward Self, peel the layers to your own Truth & Purpose. The channels are open for a time and you can communicate and receive information from the deepest part of your SoulSelf. This is an Initiation.

1/18 ~ Sun (source & essential Self) ~square~ Uranus (awakening & radical shift):
As with any Uranus activation, this one disrupts the normal flow in order to facilitate a ‘break to realign’ moment. While sometimes disruptive & challenging, the ultimate result is refreshing in some way. Consider the energy that thickens, gathering for a severe thunderstorm, then releasing buckets of rain, for hours, you sleep deeply and awaken to a bright sunny morning with birds chirping unusually loud outside your window. Got the visual? ; -)) This activation is the necessary challenge that gets your attention that something better is available, if you’re willing to improvise and think on your feet. If you’ve been unusually restricted in some way, you may feel restless. Rather than being reactive to the unexpected shift (within or without), it’s best to take a pause for the cause, step back and try to gain some perspective. Remember to be present, too far in the past can be depressing and too far into the future, and you cause your Self unnecessary anxiety. Breathe, be under the sky, invite clarity about the next step and trust your gut. This energy, while sometimes uncomfortable and often sudden, is very necessary to disrupt any illusions/delusions you may be holding on to. It’s time to express your Self in new ways so the old ways naturally stop working to get your attention.

1/8 ~ Mercury (ideas, thoughts & concepts) ~square~ Mars (desire & actions):
This activation can be a tough one for some. If your beliefs are out of alignment with your actions, if you are not self-aware or you act-out unconsciously, being selfish or childish, then watch out, because squares test you to grow and change in some way. Often, this also means that you are suppressing your own nature in some way, which is never really a good idea. When you suppress your Soul, it can make your human more sensitive or defensive, taking things personally as a threat or challenge. If you catch your Self feeling irritable for no apparent reason this week, try to step back and gain some perspective before responding to either your own thoughts or another’s words. Mercury & Mars getting together, in this challenging way, can provoke debates and, in some people, actual fights, so be careful. The deeper aspect of this activation is that some part of you wants to express, perhaps in a new way, and your monkey-mind has got you all off track. Mars demands that you know who you are and what you want, and is the Sacred Masculine part of you, which is supposed to hold good boundaries, protect you and negotiate on your behalf in the world. If you know something that you are not acting on, this can be frustrating. If you are acting in ways that are not allowing you to think things through, this too can cause accidents, problems and delays. It is best to pull in until you are clear. And also keep in mind, you may not be out of alignment in the above ways, but those around you may be and will likely have no context for what they are feeling and therefore, become indiscriminate with their own choices & actions. Self-preservation is not selfish but essential at this time.

1/11 ~ Sun (source & essential Self) ~conjunct~ Pluto (purification & transformation):
This energy brings to mind a quote, “circumstances don’t make a man, they reveal him”. The Sun (ego) and Pluto (transformation) are connecting and you are often a different Being once this energy passes and the two planets separate again (they meet once a year). Pluto brings into the Light, aspects of our Selves which may have been buried, neglected or ignored lately (or for some, a very long time). Sometimes that is miraculous & life-saving, and other times this can be arduous & exhausting, but it is a completely natural process. With this energy, you can now more fully access your own Source (Sun) and transcend (Pluto) who you “used to be” and begin to truly embody who you are becoming. Bringing things into the Light comes in many forms, as you question all that you thought you were or thought you knew about what you really want to express in this lifetime. You can use this as a Rebirth of Light within you or you can look at it as Light being brought to your deepest, darkest places within to heal them with a pure Universal Light. It is an initiation that often requires a release or sacrifice of some kind that, ultimately, allows you to grow & blossom in new, more authentic ways. As always, concentrated power (Pluto) must be responsibly directed, so watch any projections or provoked power struggles and pick your battles (everybody doesn’t like Light in their dark places). It’s time to question if the sacrifices you’re making are truly worth it? Relationships often strain under this influence because it is such *raw truth* rising from the Soul but it also brings things to the surface that are better addressed sooner than later. (Think The Tower card in Tarot.) It doesn’t have to be destroyed necessarily (or maybe it does) as much as it needs to be transformed (new form). Remember, breakdowns always precede the breakthroughs!!

Solstice Bonus HERE (26-min/Sunset Video)
Solstice Bonus HERE (26-min/mp3 Audio)

Note from Kelly:
Sorry for the late post but hopefully the additional podcast/youtube above will make it up to you ; ) If you were not able to join me and Shanta Gabriel for the Winter Solstice Celebration, I’ve created an excerpt when I shared my thoughts on the season and first quarter of the new year. Check it out when you have time, especially since things will start rolling forward as we navigate through the 1/11 Portal that opened with the 11/11 Portal. We are in very new territory, and for some of us, literally a One Year so I invite you to check out this week’s forecast and the additional Solstice support because it all deeply supports your new intentions. More soon!

1/2 ~ Sun (core-identity) ~conjunct~ Saturn (responsibility):
This energy gives you a strong dose of purpose & direction, but also reminds you that those big dreams require a solid foundation in order to flourish. The wheels that get set in motion this week are creating your future, for better or worse – so pay attention! While this is often about career matters, it is also about your responsibilities in general, the things you have to do that cannot be delegated to others. This is great energy for organizing and planning, creating order, and organizing your Self or your life in some way that fortifies your position. 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 already put some things off and that is only going to contribute further to your stress levels. Make a list of things to do, prioritize them and start checking them off.

1/4 ~ Mercury (voice) ~trine~ Uranus (individuality):
This activation gives you access to your Higher Mind and opens the way for new, deeper insights that can guide & direct you at this time. Business as usual will not work, it’s time to open up to the unusual, do something different, look at things from another angle and watch the ah-ha’s start pouring in. Your intuition will be firing on all cylinders, giving you access to unprecedented clarity. While your thinking may lack discipline, your ability to access solutions to any recent (or long-standing) challenges may be off the charts! This energy will not be contained, even though it is generally all mental, you really will have a hard time keeping up with the ideas, thoughts, concepts & intuitions that come to you under this influence so try to take notes that you can refer to later when the grounding will be necessary. Pay attention to the messages that come through/from others as well since you never know how the Universe will show up. This alone is an indication that whatever your consciousness may not have been previously ready to assimilate or process is awakening now to that which is just for you!

1/4 ~ Sun (core essential Self) ~sextile~ Neptune (vision & imagination):
This energy activates your ability to dissolve the ego (momentarily) and allow your SoulSelf to shine through! Your Spiritual center, base or practice comes up – how is it supporting you? If you’ve gotten away from your practice, this energy will make it easier to connect to your Spirit, your intuition and the vision for your life’s purpose, at this time. You may find where your contribution is most valued, when you step outside your Self and see how others’ needs are important too. Find a need and fill it … in your own deliciously unique way, as you will be feeling more naturally giving & compassionate under this influence. Your physical energy may also be low as a result of Neptune channeling the Sun’s Source Energy inwardly to re-charge your Spirit. Otherwise, it could be projections of all kinds, yours and other people’s as well. Best to spend some intentional solitude, preferably in Nature if/when/where possible.

1/5 ~ CAPRICORN New Moon/Solar Eclipse: (#2 of 8 eclipses)
We have been through the Cancer Full Moon (12/22), we’ve done some clearing of the past so we can seed the Capricorn New Moon (1/5) and clarify our intentions going into the new year. The Cardinal Energy of Cancer/Capricorn/Libra/Aries is all about our *Fundamentals* and making choices & decisions around them. The messages are subtle yet fierce, clearly pointing to the end of the old as we create space and activate the fertility (compost) of the NEW!! The Cancer Full Moon (12/22) released all that we’ve gathered and nurtured (and been deeply attached to in some way) during 2018. How were you fed/nourished by the energies of 2018? Did you discover new ways of productively channeling your emotions? Capricorn New Moon/Solar Eclipse (1/5) initiates the new reality and gives you a renewed foundation. You can now build on that which is stabilized so it has maximum capacity to support you in all your endeavors.

Eclipses activate larger cycles so reflect on the years: 2009-2011 / 2000-2002 / 1990-1992 and consider the theme that gets repeatedly activated for you. You may just be beginning to be able to fully understand the changes that were activated back in those previous years and how they relate to what is coming up for you now. Most times the energy is too intense in the moment and it is hard to know exactly what or where the energies are pushing you. Eclipse cycles also tend to take about 6-months to clarify the activation, while the entire process of initiation takes 2-3 years to anchor the next 8-10 years, with an extended realm of effects for 18-20 years. What do you want anchored now, where your Home/Sacred Space and Work/Contribution are both concerned?

Often, the Solar Eclipse will be activating your physical body, while the Lunar Eclipse will be activating your emotional body, but together, your spiritual body should go to a completely new level. The lessons this month will center around emotional and material security; home and work; sacred space and sacred work; private and public life; Sacred Feminine and Sacred Masculine; Archetypal Mother and Father. How can you be more responsible for your feelings (Inner), as well as for what you create in the world (Outer)? How can you connect to a deep sense of belonging (Cancer) and an authentic sense of responsibility for your life and life’s work (Capricorn)?

The Capricorn lesson centers around Inner Authority & Personal Responsibility. What are you known for in your personal and professional life? This is an opportunity to clarify what Sacred, Heart-Centered work is for you and release any blockages to you contributing your unique piece to society. This is an opportunity to release any weakness, fear and let go of the past once and for all. It is time to center and truly own who you are and what you want from this life and then you can use this energy to renew your commitment to living your Truth & Purpose. You will be recognized and rewarded in equal measure to your commitment and dedication. It’s all up to you. You have a clean slate to begin with now and fulfill the potential of your Being here, now and for the next 10-20 years.

of Kelly’s Weekly Forecast

Note from Kelly:
As we navigate the extremes of Light & Darkness, we can find or cultivate our own unique balance, sweet spot or comfort zone. Of course, maintaining that is always the challenge, right? This week’s activations promise to stir things pretty deeply for one and all so be mindful of your words, thoughts & deeds. Now through the first or second week of January 2019, we are still navigating the depths or just emerging from them. Give your Self some time & space for what I call “re-entry”. When you have a transformative experience, like the year 2018 was for most of us, it’s crucial to take a moment to process what came into the Light for you, the individual. How were you cracked open in 2018? And what did you find in your Heart when that happened?

The planetary energies support a variety of ‘odd couples’ activating our Inner Alchemist forcing us to take two (or more) really different elements and combine them for something new and utterly unique. How’s that going for you? When you come up against a challenge that “seems” insurmountable, what is your natural response? Do you quit or get creative & determined? Well, these energies require us to do both, be determined and grounded while pursuing the wildest dreams we can conceive at this time. 2019 promises to expand our vision of what is possible, both for ourselves as individuals, and for the communities to which we belong.

Reviewing this week’s activations is what prompted this additional note. I want to take advantage of the supportive *juju* available this week, despite any holidays and family obligations. If you find time to listen/read the forecast this week, then you’re already doing GREAT!! Your Higher Self knows the energies and what’s best for you, now & always. But I want to offer something a little richer, deeper, like the self-work we do in the Venus Circle. If you have ever wondered what that’s all about, it is mostly a Circle of women (various ages), getting to know their own natural rhythms after being imposed upon by patriarchy, culture & family conditioning.

This week, we are supported to nurture our dreams & visions, and go deeper within ourselves to be able to offer more in our relationships & communities. [Enter the distraction of the holidays.] It’s not inconceivable that your Soul Self has an agenda and gets cranky when the world imposes uninvited like this. It’s better to use the stress or tension to gather some pertinent information regarding YOU! Whatever comes up this week is but a reflection of something deeper going on within you. If it’s light-filled & positive, great, that means you are on the right track and grounded in your true Self. If you have a dark holiday with relatives or strangers, do your best to excavate the blessing or teaching from that exchange. What can you learn about your Self by examining your own responses to outside triggers? Positive or negative– what is your natural response? What is your conditioned response to both positive and negative outside influences?

In addition to this week’s forecast, we are exploring the upcoming Venus/Moon contact that falls on 1.1.2019, New Year’s Day. So this last week of 2018 leads to an Initiation & Release in your Scorpio House and at the Root Chakra. The Venus Retrograde process is almost done and so begins her new cycle. We have released the negative Inner Masculine that guided our decisions in the world by abusing or misusing our own power. We have also released the negative Inner Masculine that guided our internal dialogues, the negative self-talk that tells you that you’ll never amount to anything if you don’t achieve the status-quo-way (whatever that may be, it’s unique to cultures around the world). So essentially, we’ve cleansed that so that our Inner Feminine can also operate more fully and they can work together in better balance.

This month, we Initiate at the Root Chakra, and you can decide what you would like to ‘pull from the root’ so it does not go into your future with you. We are developing or renegotiating our relationship with our own Shadow Nature. Y’all know I love me some Dr. Clarissa Pinkola-Estes, who says that Shadow is the “aspects of oneself which are considered by ego to be undesirable or not useful and are therefore relegated to the dark”. This is another indication that the Shadow Nature holds both our negative complexes & unresolved issues, as well as our innate gifts & natural talents. Notice that she says these natural inclinations are really uncomfortable to “the ego”, indicating that they are also somehow not in alignment with the status quo, so you must hide or disregard them. It’s time to honor the worst parts of oneself and acknowledge the unconscious motivations behind some of the decisions you’ve made in the last 18-months to 8-years. This month, you may be shown the many ways that there is a disconnect between who you were taught, raised or conditioned to be and who you really are. This causes its own kind of ‘survival mode’ thinking or living that we can also address this month.

We are also re-setting the connection to the Physical Body & Root Chakra, clearing and releasing any blockages to feeling safe, nourished and protected in your own body or in your own personal environment. This is your very literal day-to-day existence that needs a clearing of some sort. As the Earth’s Frequency rises, it affects our bodies too. As we age, our needs & requirements change over time. It’s also helpful to get in a rhythm like the body, input & output, take-in & digest, assimilate & release. If you alternate consolidating & expanding your life, in an ongoing rhythm, things start to work more fluidly, smoothly & organically perfect for you. Also consider how much shame & disgust goes on with the body for you (or women you know). Shadow Nature is not limited to hiding your imbalances or negativity, it is also where we relegate the gifts, strengths & individuality that often make others uncomfortable. It is time to stop hiding & surviving and consciously choose a new archetype to embody going forward. You’ve gotten all the good out of being a Survivor.

We are going to explore some of this a little more deeply on the Venus TeleCircle ~ THUR/Dec 27th @8pm and all are welcome! You can join us once in a while to get an infusion of the Sacred Feminine and how the energies are playing out for you personally or you can get a Custom Guide and go narrow & deep with your own individual values & priorities. 2018 was life-changing for everyone I know, me included. 2019 is going to illuminate the new, amazing possibilities and like the Phoenix from the Ashes, we will all rise into our greater selves and richer stories this year! Just prepare to start grounding the new vision/new story by 2020 because it can/will support you for 7-28 years, minimum.

Now you can check out this week’s activations and do your best to navigate the Waters in which you find your Self (choppy or smooth). Keep in mind that you are *emerging* from something or someplace into the NEW! Take your time, look around in the new year, get acclimated to the new vibration and then determine from the inside-out what Path you would like to experience next because there is definitely no going back. All that you need will be provided, just move forward on faith and look for opportunities in every obstacle and turn your wounds into wisdom that you can actually use. OneLove, Kelly

12/24 ~ Mercury (communication) ~square~ Neptune (dissolution):
This is a mixed-blessing energy. On one hand, it’s good for spiritual study and giving your dreams a little energy (if your schedule permits). On the other hand, it makes for major miscommunications between people. Try to think before speaking, because if it’s possible to misunderstand or ‘not get it’ altogether, it will happen this week. Be careful not to let “longing” for your dreams to come true, distort your judgment and mislead you into believing the illusion. With this energy, some people will deliberately deceive and others have to be careful not to be misled. Stick to the facts or stay quiet, for now. You may even be inclined to withhold information to avoid a confrontation – don’t do it. Communicate with your Self and God/Spirit/Source or Higher Self today, otherwise plan to be very clear in explaining yourself to others (humans) so there are no misunderstandings.

12/28 ~ Venus (relationships) ~sextile~ Pluto (transformation):
This energy deepens all emotions and strengthens bonds & attachments. Friendships & love relationships become much deeper and, sometimes more intense, not to mention any physical (sexual) experience. Being fake or superficial is never possible when Pluto is involved, and because Venus is involved, we’re talking relationships or how you relate in general, so if you are needing to dig a little deeper with someone, you are supported. This energy can facilitate positive transformation in your relationships, partnerships or collaborations. It will give you added power to help you change what needs changing or at least get it on the table for deeper discussion or a clearing conversation. The emotional intensity may be at an unusually high level this week, 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.

Please NOTE:
On the above linked Podcast/YouTube, I do a little wrap-up of the year that was spontaneous and allowed me to synthesize these two activations in the hopes of easing your mind as we enter an often stressful holiday week. Be sure to listen or watch when you can, especially if you usually only READ this on the blog.

There is a special Solstice message after I go through this week’s activations. They are actually really amazing for our Solstice time, I’m so glad you’re checking in with the energies so you can benefit from these little blessings & miracles occurring all around us at this time.

12/16 ~ Venus (relationships) ~sextile~ Saturn (responsibility):
This energy has to do with your obligations within the context of relationships. They are not difficult obligations (in this case) but more emphasis is placed on enjoying serving those you love. This is also what I would call the “keep it real” energy, regarding relationships. This energy makes you want to really sit down and define your terms within your own relationships (which I am a total advocate of). It’s really hard to grow to the next level when each person is not clear on what the other needs or desires. Of course, this starts with you knowing what you want or don’t want and what you are willing to compromise about so you can articulate that clearly too.

12/17 ~ Mars (desire & action) ~sextile~ Pluto (purification & transformation):
This is lower will meets Higher Will ~ within you! Mars is your inner Sacred Masculine and therefore helps you take action & make choices according to who you are and what you want. Pluto will ensure that you come from the purest place within (Soul-level), which often entails a cleansing of the non-essential and over-growth of the last cycle first. Luckily, this is not a “hard/bad” activation but an opportunity to connect with what you really want, at the deepest Soul-level, which will naturally lead to whatever is blocking that and its ultimate release. Keep in mind that those who are more out-of-touch with who they are and what they want tend to explode & implode when Mars & Pluto get together, even in a positive aspect like this one. This is a potent and (thankfully) positive mix of energy & power coming together, direct it wisely on your own behalf. This activation is a great opportunity for substantial forward movement, however, nothing worthwhile comes without conscious effort and willing sacrifice. (With Pluto involved there is always a sacrifice.) In this case, the sacrifice will likely be where your vision of the final outcome is concerned. Your desires can/will be fulfilled but they just may not “look” like you thought they would. Remember, when it comes to “wanting” anything, stay in touch with the “feeling” that your desire brings rather than the physical appearance or manifestation. You always want to set your intentions, do the work, then allow Spirit to breathe LIFE into the vision. When you do that, the form is always better than you could have ever imagined!

12/20 ~ Sun (core identity) ~trine~ Uranus (individuality):
This energy is wonderful for a little self-examination and taking action on your own behalf. Look at your habits, home situation, work or anything else that is important to you and look at how you’ve gotten to where you are. What kind of choices led here? This is a good time to look around and see how you can conserve what is useful and release that which is no longer relevant for you going forward. It’s also a good energy for organizing & clearing the decks, so to speak, of things that have piled up but still need to be dealt with (or released altogether). You may be feeling very practical, possibly selfish, but it’s actually self-preservation, one of your most natural instincts.

12/21 ~ Venus (relationships) ~trine~ Neptune (vision):
This is a very supportive energy for dreaming your world into being! Allow your imagination some latitude to wander and see where it leads. You may be very connected to others and what they are going through so maintain healthy boundaries and don’t be too absorbent. You could also have a very spiritual encounter with another (friend, family or lover) but only time will tell if it is Neptune playing tricks on you or if it is truly a spiritual union or connection.

12/21 ~ Mercury (ideas, thoughts & concepts) ~conjunct~ Jupiter (expansion & learning):
It is time to expand your thinking & develop more conscious awareness! This is a powerful energy assisting you on many levels. You will make connections easily & quickly that help you integrate newly acquired information or knowledge, making you appear psychic (or at least lucky) to others. That’s not what it really is of course, you are actually just attuned, dialed-in, connected within, so your faith is high (or can be), you have no doubt so miracles happen! At this time, you can connect with your Highest ideal and most broad outlook for your life, and you may feel that you are finally ready to live your Truth. You are so connected to your own ideal, your authentic Truth, that you naturally give others permission to live their Truth as well, creating an atmosphere of tolerance that nourishes all involved. The challenge with this energy is going too ‘broad’ and missing details that are vital to your success. You may also miss out on crucial information if you are too overconfident and/or self-righteous in any way. Remain humble, knowing that your way works for you, but it may not work for others (and vice versa). And it is ALL okay! If you remain centered in the Light and your own Heart, this energy gives you a little boost to whatever you are creating at this time.

Solstice Note:
I don’t often talk about the activations on our seasonal Holy Day/Solstice call so I’m glad that I got to discuss them here because these are pretty magical to have at same time as Solstice. It is Jupiter’s first time there in 12-years so feel into the possibility that some Truth that you wanted to express 12+ years ago (circa 2007) was not actually ready but it could be now. You have had a 12-year education that seeds a new vision right NOW! This Solstice initiates a very new year, with new energy for both expanded possibilities and a certain balanced stability that hasn’t been available in many years either. Own it. Feel it. Do not give in to the illusions spinning around you but hold fast to the Light in your own Heart and the knowledge that we are safe, Nature is adapting (as should we) and we are just in the birth canal, birthing a new Age of Wisdom & Love that starts with each of us!

As you may have noticed, I’ve been sending you lots of year-end gratitude but 2018 was pretty special. Not in a frilly, fun way, but in a life-changing, transformative, liberating ordeal way. So every time I go to talk to you I realize yet another reason why I am so grateful to have a community. I love holding the Light for you all to return & replenish as needed, but it’s so delicious when I am able to receive the Light & Prayers you send to me! I feel it ; ) Many of us have been practicing our *telepathy* in this Circle since Venus crossed the Sun in 2004 and even more of you have joined me since her final pass in 2012. (We don’t really need our phones & computers to communicate – haha! I’m just sayin’ …)

So I remind you here that KarmicTools and my Shamanic Astrology will always have a virtual presence, but if you are like me, wanting a more *REAL* connection with community, please stay tuned as I develop KellyMBeard.com where I will be hosting live events around the world. If you can’t come to Florida to see me, then I want to come to your city and meet your Circle so we can all expand, supported & protected by a unified vision of wholeness within and connection to Mother Earth & Father Sky. I’ve asked my Inner Circle to share links with me to their favorite podcasts or online radio programs that they think I’d be a good guest on and I want to encourage you to do that too. I want to connect with you (IRL) – in real life, as they say, so if you feel called to collaborate in the new year, please reach out! I still plan to be in Mt Shasta for Summer Solstice when it is possible and there is talk of all-night fire-side StoryTelling in Rhode Island to celebrate Imbolc/Aquarius Gate of Power in Feb but let me know where you are and how you celebrate the 8 Sacred Seasons because I’d love to join you someday!

I’ve got several special offers for readings & classes that make good gifts but once you come up for air, they are even better gifts for YOU! (See links in earlier post or my most recent mailing.) From youto youwith Love! I’m going to be focusing a lot on self-care and replenishment in the new year, simply because the last several have been so draining for most of us. It is time to do some self-assembling so we are stronger for some of these miracles that are possible! So even though we are closing in on the longest night in this hemisphere, 3-days later the Light Returns and month-by-month, our energy will increase accordingly. I’m looking forward to great things in 2019 and you should know that we are well-supported to expand our vision & dream big because whatever we come up with is going to anchor in 2020 and be with us for a minimum of 7-years and max is 30+ years going forward. It is a potent time to create all new structures of support for ourselves and the better we do that, then the more we can expand safely in the new year and beyond!

On a final note, I’m curious if you all are diggin’ my Sunset videos? I’m hoping to get a Moon Rise video next week for our Cancer Full Moon 12/22. Stay tuned!
