Just in case you haven’t noticed, we have been running extremely slow. The internet has been coming and going like crazy. I am about ready to drive to the phone company and shake the crap out of someone but every time it rains this happens. I did call them and they are sending a man out here to fix the problem. You know it is funny, when we were in our original building we had a horrible time with the internet. But since we have found a temporary place to operate from, the internet sucks here too. I guess it is the whole county having lousy internet service.
Anyway, the jokers, I mean repairmen have finally arrived and of course they will have to disconnect the internet to work on it. I figured while we were off the net, some of the ladies would type up some information about fire witches. Then when they get the internet back on-line, we will have that requested information for you.
Just wanted to let you know what was going on. Got to run, the repairman is giving me nasty looks.
Your Love Horoscopes for the Week of November 16th
As Neptune turns direct on Wednesday, nothing is as it appears — particularly in matters of the heart. Take things slow and avoid major decisions this week. Expect a difficult week for love overall — you may want to do your best to fly under the radar. A testy square on Friday between Venus and Pluto might lead to explosive power struggles between you and your lover. Control, obsession, and manipulation are all possible, along with smoke and mirrors thanks to Neptune. Aries Horoscope Mar 21 – Apr 19
Sometimes, love just hurts. This week, you might feel as if a wound you thought was healed is suddenly ripped wide open again. You might wonder if you can really trust your partner, and if he or she is actually hurting your reputation rather than lifting you up. Although you might feel like you’re questioning everything about your relationship this week, avoid decisions. These days, nothing is as it seems. Taurus Horoscope Apr 20 – May 20
Avoid talking to your colleagues about your love life — at all costs. There’s a distinct possibility that one of them will be so jealous that he or she may attempt to sabotage your relationship. Alternatively, if you’re involved in an office romance, this is the week to keep things as discreet as possible. Something might happen that puts you in a vulnerable position. Head it off at the pass.

If there was ever an “ouch” week in matters of the heart, this is it — especially for you! Venus, now in your true love sector, will square off with Pluto on Friday. There could be a testy situation happening between you and your lover that threatens to erode your trust. Or, your betrayal buttons might be pushed somehow. If you find yourself feeling mistrustful, don’t sit and stew about it. Have a conversation with your sweetheart. Stat! Cancer Horoscope Jun 21 – Jul 22
If you feel as if your mate is trying to manipulate a situation to his or her liking, you’re likely to push back with surprising force. The thing is, when it comes to home and hearth, you must have emotional security at all costs. If your partner’s behavior gives you any impression that it will be threatened, you’ll be ready to fight back. Just try not to overreact. This week, that will be all too easy to do.
Leo Horoscope Jul 23 – Aug 22
Most everyone else will have a difficult week for romance, but as long as you’re not mixing business with pleasure, it appears you’re in luck. On Friday Mercury will enter your 5th House of True Love, followed by the Sun on Sunday. You’ll have a decided edge in communicating from the heart with dating prospects. Expect a strong mental connection with someone you feel can truly light up your life. Virgo Horoscope Aug 23 – Sep 22
Give your partner the benefit of the doubt this week, if at all possible. On Wednesday Neptune will turn direct in your relationship sector, and the power of his station may cast clouds over everything that has to do with your love life. Forgiveness and unconditional love will be ideal — as long as you’re up for taking the high road during a confusing week where nothing will be clear. Still, just to be safe, if you’re dating someone casually, keep your money to yourself. Libra Horoscope Sep 23 – Oct 22
The last thing you’ll want to do this week is deal with a relative invading your love life. Unfortunately, a family member might have strong opinions about your relationship, and they don’t appear to be positive. If you get the sense that he or she is trying to sabotage your happiness without just cause, you’re likely to react in a most ungraceful manner. Do your best to convey to your relative that he or she needs to mind their own business without losing your cool. Scorpio Horoscope Oct 23 – Nov 21
Your love life might feel a bit like you’re lost in a soap opera this week. Neptune, the planet of unconditional love but also illusion and confusion, will turn direct on Wednesday after having been retrograde for several months. Since he will turn direct in your romance sector, you might be certain you’ve stepped right into a fairytale and met a soulmate. Or, you might just wake up and realize you’ve been kissing a frog all along. Expect drama either way.
More for Scorpio: Sagittarius Horoscope Nov 22 – Dec 21
If one of your friends is sending mixed signals your way, this week it might prove to be too frustrating to handle. This pal of yours might openly flirt with you one day and then act coy — or even cold — the next. If so, it’ll be clear that he or she is playing a game and you won’t have it. You might decide to end the friendship altogether — even if you share an attraction for this person. In the end, it’s probably not worth the aggravation.
More for Sagittarius: Capricorn Horoscope Dec 22 – Jan 19
With Venus moving toward a tense square to Pluto this week, your love life might feel extra bumpy. Be honest with yourself and consider whether or not you’re dating someone because you truly feel an attraction and admiration for the person, or if there’s a hidden agenda. You might be dating someone because of his or her status, or because this person is a piece of eye candy. Superficial romance won’t survive a week like this. Be honest with yourself. Aquarius Horoscope Jan 20 – Feb 18
If you’re hiding the fact that you have a true moral difference with someone you’re dating, this week you won’t be able to keep up the facade any longer. In fact, something might click and you’ll realize that you were not only being untrue to yourself, but that you simply cannot be in a relationship with someone who is so not on your level. When it comes to love, ethics matter. Always.
Pisces Horoscope Feb 19 – Mar 20
You might not know what you want this week when it comes to love … or anything else. If possible, take this week as a time-out from making any significant romantic decisions. If you are dating someone and he or she is giving you an ultimatum about the relationship, you might be so confused that you make the wrong choice. Or, you might make a significant relationship decision out of guilt. Don’t! Next week you’ll only wake up to realize you’ve been manipulated.
The veil between worlds is exceptionally thin today, enabling us to feel the presence of spirits in our lives. The earthy Capricorn Moon requires us to take the most pragmatic course of action, but it’s tricky with so much undecipherable static coming through from the other side. The cosmic culprits behind this inter dimensional noise are planets on four points of an otherworldly seven-pointed star. Nevertheless, our real work is in the here and now.
Aries Horoscope Mar 21 – Apr 19
It seems as if events are happening for no reason today, befuddling your thinking and throwing off your entire game. Nevertheless, you’re not one to give up without a fight, especially since you are expected to accomplish measurable results. On the other hand, if you can spend the day in spiritual practice or watching waves at the beach, then all may be going just as planned. Ultimately, the less you try to do now, the more likely you will find peace. Although it’s not cosmically feasible to exercise complete control over your environment, there is much to be learned from simply letting go.
Taurus Horoscope Apr 20 – May 20
Your stress level rises when someone won’t play according to your rules. In fact, others might even go so far as to tell you that your approach is not viable. In general, scheming to gain advantage won’t likely work out in your favor since there are too many hidden forces influencing the outcome of your plan. Assume a low profile now for the best results. You can jump back into the driver’s seat tomorrow if you don’t exhaust yourself shadowboxing today.
Gemini Horoscope May 21 – Jun 20
You might have to rethink your immediate career objectives due to constraints on your time. It’s not that your work is taking longer than you planned; it’s just that you may have bitten off more than you can chew. Nevertheless, it’s best to stay on your current course for a while longer; altering your trajectory now will only create more problems than it solves. Don’t make any impulsive decisions today as you will likely change your mind a few more times before you land on the best solution. Patience is your friend.
Cancer Horoscope Jun 21 – Jul 22
Generally speaking, you water-loving Crabs aren’t all that comfortable when the Moon takes up residence in dry Capricorn. However, the low emotional tide might actually bring relief to an otherwise challenging day by offering you some much-needed common sense. You may be overwhelmed by a lack of clarity in a current relationship because it’s impossible to read the energy of your friend or lover today. Nevertheless, it’s not wise to succumb to the temptation to grasp at straws for the sake of stability now. Find your security from within before asking anything of others.
Leo Horoscope Jul 23 – Aug 22
You could be sending mixed messages now without even realizing it. Your need to be efficient at work today is being challenged by the power of your overactive imagination. Although you’re unwilling to compromise your dreams, the ambitions of others can further stimulate your own personal fantasies. Luckily, there’s no need to resolve this dilemma now; just stay aware of the potential effect your choices have on everyone else. In the long run, your dedication to your goals will create a greater impact than anything else.
Virgo Horoscope Aug 23 – Sep 22
Wrapping your logical mind around the complexity of the forces at work is impossible today. Although cerebral Mercury inspires you to process the unfathomable information being presented by transformational Pluto, comprehension still remains just beyond your grasp now. Nevertheless, your current mission is to deepen your psychological understanding of your relationships. Don’t be dismayed by this daunting task; determination is your greatest ally at this time. Delving into the mysteries of love is a curiously captivating endeavor.
Finding balance in your life could be a study in frustration today because something is drawing you to step out of the mundane world and into your subconscious mind. Although you may be required to follow through on your real obligations anyhow, you realize the vital importance of your inner world. However, you’re better off finishing your tasks first before pursuing your spiritual quest. Honoring your priorities is essential now, no matter how compelling your soul’s journey seems in the moment.
Scorpio Horoscope Oct 23 – Nov 21
Although you harbor great hopes of moving an ongoing discussion into a more meaningful direction, the conversation might not go according to your wishes. The provocative Moon’s cosmic hookup with your key planet Pluto just won’t leave you alone today, creating difficulties as you attempt to communicate your intense feelings to your friends and coworkers. Thankfully, a healthy debate can work to your advantage if you’re willing to adapt to the changing dynamics. Let go of your attachment to any preconceived outcome and simply seek satisfaction by staying present in each moment.
Sagittarius Horoscope Nov 22 – Dec 21
Your stubbornness may prove problematic today, especially if you are adamant about sticking to your own way of doing things. It feels as if your work is being called into question by someone who attempts to exert power over you. Although you naturally think in broad strokes, a disagreement could result from a simple misunderstanding now. Preventing a major conflict might be as easy as focusing on the details. Whether you are talking or listening, leave no stone unturned.
Capricorn Horoscope Dec 22 – Jan 19
Others appear to be withholding their feelings from you today, but it’s possible that you’re the one who is being overly guarded. You may be unusually pessimistic now because you’re driven to understand the dynamics at play, even if the real issues are buried deep beneath the surface. The more determined you are to uncover the truth, the more you have to dig. However, don’t go back to try to solve an old mystery; just move on and pay closer attention in the future. The hidden secrets will come out in the open when you stop relentlessly searching for them.
Aquarius Horoscope Jan 20 – Feb 18
A personal issue demands that you redirect your focus away from career matters today. However, it’s frustrating that your intention to make things right isn’t enough. In fact, you might not be able to find any quick and easy fixes to your current dilemma. Nevertheless, your heartfelt sincerity eases the stress at home and on the job. Do whatever you can along the way without forcing your preferred solution on anyone else. Ultimately, the river will find its way to the sea without major interference on your part.
Pisces Horoscope Feb 19 – Mar 20
Your plans may be disrupted today by circumstances beyond your control. Your first inclination is to resist any changes, but you could wear yourself out fighting the inevitable. Don’t put too much effort toward getting your day back on track. Instead, give yourself some leeway and let the unfolding events continue to determine what you should do next. Your flexible attitude holds the key to your current happiness.
You are a bit of a paradox. Strong-minded and somewhat wilful, you also reveal a soft, sensitive, and spiritual side when at ease with the people around you and your surroundings. Others find you extremely intriguing and fascinating, and a little difficult to know. You have unusual tastes and interests, you are extremely sensual, and you are not at all afraid to reveal the individualistic side of your nature. You are both organized and progressive, and highly perceptive.

You may be entertaining rather lofty ambitions today, dear Aries, and can be more motivated than usual to do your best. You can readily draw upon especially sharp thinking and reasoning today, although distractions may be a problem. This is a good time to consider ways to bring more warmth or gentleness to your image or your work. Today and tomorrow are strong for ideas and drawing important conclusions. On practical levels, you can accomplish much if you are able to focus. It’s important for you to keep a goal in sight in order to your best today.
Your mind is inquisitive today, dear Taurus, and you can be especially reasonable and communicative. This is a good day for thinking both in large ways and with concern for details. Your attention span can be powerful but brief, so avoid taking on too many things today. There can be good insight or support coming from a partner or someone important in your life, and putting your heads together can help you to get organized or to make big plans. Changes in your belief system or personal philosophy run much deeper than they appear on the surface of things, and this can be a time for learning things that give your life more meaning. It’s a good day for initiating a conversation that means something to you, or to share your ideas with someone special.
Today and tomorrow are strong for reasoning things out, dear Gemini, and seeing the practicality or logic in recent ideas and plans. As such, patience is important, as well as activities that engage your mind. You can make headway with a financial goal now, or there can be new ideas about a deep relationship. You are adept at identifying and analyzing problem areas, and can be especially good with research and investigation. With the Moon in your solar eighth house and in the background in your solar chart, you have the chance to take a step back, observe, analyze, and make your next move with more forethought.
With the Moon in your opposing sign all day again today, dear Cancer, you could be a little moody if you can’t pair up with someone or if you can’t talk through something. Seek out company, and if it’s not available, find a mentally engaging activity to focus on. Creative projects can be a good choice now, particularly with the Sun and Mercury moving towards an alignment in your creative, romantic solar fifth house. This is an expressive position, and you need an outlet for expressing your ideas and feelings. It’s also a good time for bringing more rationality and logic to a relationship problem, if it’s needed.
You are unlikely to feel emotionally satisfied if you don’t attend to at least a few items on your to-do list today, dear Leo, but do take it easy and spread things out, as you’ll accomplish more if you don’t pressure yourself too much. This can be a good time for conversations with or about family. Today and tomorrow, you express yourself well although it can be difficult to make everyone happy, as not everything is going to be taken as it’s intended. You might brainstorm or think up ways on your own as to how to better manage and organize your daily life and routines.
This is a good time for directing emotional energy into a creative pursuit, dear Virgo, if possible, as today can be strong for inventive, unusual, and artistic self-expression. You are especially moderate and tactful with others, although people can be quite sensitive today and tomorrow, so even with special care, there can still be some misunderstandings. Do your best, but don’t worry about pleasing everyone. This is a good time for really seeing the patterns of recent ideas and for ideas coming together successfully.
With the Moon in your home and family sector all day, dear Libra, you are likely to want to relax and pull yourself out of the challenge just for now, but you could be drawn to talk about or work on a business idea. Today and tomorrow, there is likely to be a strong tendency for people to communicate, but not always in a way that completely represents how they feel. This could be a good time for your famous tact. It can be a strong time for better organizing your finances, or making sense out of a family matter.
A restless mind today can lead you to some interesting ideas and discoveries, dear Scorpio. It’s a good time to talk about yourself and your plans, or for sharing your ideas. There is general support for what you’re doing, although there can be some communication mishaps to deal with today and early tomorrow. Find something absorbing to throw yourself into, but expect a few distractions and stay flexible now. There can be good ideas related to health or work methods emerging now.
This should be a rather emotionally content day, dear Sagittarius. You’re in need of some stability and a steady pace right now, and you’re likely to find it. This is a good time for conversations about the past or for drawing upon past ideas in order to improve your life in the present. There could be a chance to tap into talents that have been ignored or pushed to the side. Ideas emerging today and tomorrow shouldn’t be ignored, even if not everyone is seeing their value quite yet. This may be particularly true of ideas about making a better living or dealing with elements from the past that have yet to resolve themselves.
With the Moon in your sign all day, dear Capricorn, feelings tend to be more urgent and strongly felt. Even so, the Moon reaches out to rational Mercury and the Sun, and this can help balance reason and intuition so that you can draw upon both in good measure. There can be a nice release of tension through conversations with friends, or involvement with friends can bring you down to earth. Problems with others that might surface today and tomorrow can be resolved relatively quickly, and it can be empowering to put personal differences behind you.
There can be a greater need than usual for personal, private time to yourself today, dear Aquarius. The Moon will enter your sign early tomorrow, and you’ll feel more sociable and visible. For now, you’re quite inclined to nurture your insides or inner world. Try your best to find alone time, and time to think, meditate, and relax. While you are inclined to look within for answers now, it can be a good time to converse or at least think about life direction matters, business, or career. Today and tomorrow are strong for ideas about any of these things, for work, and for communications, even if there is a stronger need for tact. You may be sought after for your advice or wisdom.
Today and the next few days, dear Pisces, you’re disinclined to overly competitive or demanding situations. Today, you’re seeking out like-minded people, and in the next couple of days, looking for ways to escape the daily grind. You need this time out, so if you can manage it, do so. Even so, today and tomorrow are strong for the generation of ideas, long-term plans, and strategies, and while you can certainly do this on your own, you might also benefit from others’ input or ideas in order to jumpstart your own thinking.
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 15 – 21, 2015
11/17 ~ Mercury (expression) ~conjunct~ Sun (core-Self):
This a powerful time of clarity & conscious awareness of who you are and what your goals require at this time. It is a good day to make a presentation to someone who can advance those goals in some way. There will be an inordinate amount of communications around this time, so try not to get distracted by the sheer volume, but rather, tune in to that which has the most substance and relevance to you. Because this is a pretty personal activation, you may be so excited about what you’re learning or trying to communicate, that you aren’t patient & receptive to what others are trying to communicate with you. Remember, you receive information from within and from others and whatever comes into your conscious awareness means you’re ready to learn or understand more.
This activation brings intensity and it challenges you to grow (out of comfort zone, into new territory) where your relationships & finances are concerned. You’ve probably already felt it coming (the shift in your relationship or financial situation), well, it’s here now, so you can be proactive on your own behalf or you can suffer the consequences of postponing the inevitable. (You may have heard me say: Pay now or pay double later. That applies to this transit too.) The natural reaction may be to try to hold on to the job or relationship, but try not to give in to that temptation. Pluto intensifies everything and the more you resist the necessary purification & change that Pluto brings, the more painful it usually is. It is better to clarify your values & priorities and choose change, rather than have it forced (more Pluto) upon you. Either way, once the dust settles, you should be better off because things either change for the better or go away altogether making room for something new and more in-alignment with your values & priorities of ‘now’.
I was first introduced to the concept of safety affirmations in 1988 by my long-term mentor in Hawaii. I found them to be very helpful in being more embodied in my physical world.
For years I had never felt safe to be in my body. It did not feel as though the Earth was a benevolent or safe place for me to live. Even though I knew I had volunteered to be on this planet during these challenging times of awakening, throughout my life it had felt as though I was an alien species. I even began questioning the wisdom of staying in my body.
I was coached to begin saying safety affirmations. I began with “It’s safe to be in my body.” That felt surprisingly good, so I started branching out. “It’s safe to be who I truly am. It’s safe to speak my truth.” These really started encouraging me. Then finally I received the guidance from Archangel Gabriel, “It is safe to let your Light shine!”
This was a huge revelation because I saw that in protecting myself I did not allow the true essence of my most Divine, authentic self to radiate into the world. Who knows what past-life history made me feel that it was not safe to show that most vulnerable side. The important thing was for me then to shift into allowing the true radiance of Divine Light to be expressed in the world through my being.
It has taken many years to do this. I wish I could say it was an immediate turnaround. Old patterns can take some time to let go of. However, what I discovered is that when I allowed myself to reveal and express my most authentic loving nature, the happier I became.
The times we are living in require us to open up into this greater realm of awareness. We need to remember that it is not only safe to let our Light shine, it is imperative to the evolution of consciousness of the Earth. The more Divine Light that shines into the world, the more the planet and all beings who share this world are elevated.
Divine Light carries the expression of the love and intelligence of God that we each need so urgently. In order for all to live in true Harmony and for Peace to prevail on Earth, please know that it is truly safe to let your beautiful Light shine!
The Gabriel Messages #36
It’s safe to let your Light shine!
At the very heart of you is the pure light of God. This light has the ability to change your thinking and change your outer world. It is a light which, like a flame when fanned, can fill every cell, every fiber of your being and transform you. Fanning this flame means giving the light within you a time of focused attention.
Your imagination holds the key to transforming your life. What you believe can be achieved. Even before you believe something is true, you can allow the possibility to be there and imagine it to be true. Wherever you focus your attention, your life-force energy will follow.
Imagine the light within you shining brightly. Give yourself a moment to inhale deeply, and as you exhale imagine a golden light beam moving from the base of your spine into the earth. As you continue to breathe, feel this deep connection to the earth relax you and provide a strong base within you.
Now, bring your attention to your heart center, the energy field in the middle of your chest. Imagine there is a glowing flame of light burning there. As you breathe in, this flame grows larger and brighter. As you breathe out, the light from this flame begins to fill your body.
Continue to breathe and imagine this light expanding behind your shoulders and down your back, feel it filling every organ and every cell. This is the light of pure spirit, the healing love of God. This light fills you with the Divine presence and radiates from you in waves of love.
Now imagine this light shining from you and blessing your house, the area where you live and the planet. Imagine this loving light blessing all the people you meet today. It’s a good feeling to send light to others as well as to yourself. This light promotes healing energy in the world around you and in your own body. Peace begins within the heart of each person individually. God’s light, shining from the heart of each person on Earth, would bring peace to the planet and transform the world.
It’s safe to let your light shine. Maybe when you were a child, it did not feel safe to be who you really were inside — innocent, trusting and filled with the light of love. But the consciousness of the people in the world is beginning to change. Now people everywhere are turning to spirituality as the only place where they can find true peace and happiness. They are longing for more sweetness and love in their lives. So the Angels say, “Fear not.” When you shine your love light on the world, you will be a loving presence. You don’t have to say anything. Your energy alone will have a transforming effect.
The visualization of the flame of love in your heart shining out to the people of Earth is very potent. No matter what is happening around you, keep this visualization moving through you. It takes a little practice, but it will have a healing effect even if you can’t see it. Just your willingness to imagine it is enough to create a light shining from within you. This light is that which connects you and everyone around you to the infinite power of Divine Love.
The master Jesus suggested that your light should not be hidden under a bushel. Let your light shine forth to bless the world, every area in your life and bring true Divine Radiance of God into the awakening of new life you are all experiencing.
