When any of the karma planets like Jupiter and Saturn are retrograde, it’s always a good time to review the laws of karma, and how to manifest karma in your own life. Karma is not just a belief or a lifestyle. It’s the oxygen that fuels life into one’s day to day living.
Are you breathing in, and breathing out, the right karma? Is your karma credit in good shape? Or does it need some work? Maybe you want someone else’s karma credit to come due to find peace? Hey. It happens. We are all waiting for that “what goes around to come” moment. It’s called being human.
The truth is, we all need a little work on our karma credit. And it’s always a good thing to keep your karma credit score in good shape. Once in a while, we’ll even have transits that bring with it extra luck to those whose “karma credit scores” are in good shape.
When “karma planets” go direct again, the rewards are there for the taking, no matter what your zodiac sign is. This is why it’s important to review the “laws of karma” and keep them handy for when retrograde transits arrive.
Whether you are waiting for karma to come around to somebody, or to yourself, here are the only five ways to manifest karma in your every day life.
5 Ways to Manifest Good Karma in Your Life
1. Be a Lover
We’re not just talking about romantic love. Love everyone and anyone you encounter all of the time. This is the Golden Rule of every spiritual and religious tenet on this planet, because it works. It is a simple concept that when used, will reward you with good karma.
That being said, this is, of course, difficult to practice some days. It can even be easier for some zodiac signs than others.
Sometimes Saturn just gets our gears going, and there’s nothing we can do about it. But Albert Einstein discovered this rule (and law of karma) through the scientific principle of relativity.For every action, there is a reaction. And that reaction is the product of the action.
If your actions and thoughts are constantly negative, and you are treating the people around you with some attitude, guess what your reactions are going to be? Being a lover is simple to say, but hard to do, but you can do it. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
2. Be a Creator
Don’t wait for life to just happen to you, because it won’t. Every New Moon we tell you to plant seeds. Are you? Every Full Moon we tell you to close chapters. Do you? You accomplish these things by being a creator in your life.
Create your destiny, and the rest will follow.
This means creating endings during Full Moons (and eclipses sometimes), and rolling with it. That means creating beginnings that terrify you, and rolling with it. When you show the Universe you know and believe you are the master of your own fate, you manifest good karma in your life.
Remember, for every action, you get a reaction. So are you creating super awesome actions? If so, then wait for the karma to come rollin’ in baby. In a good way!
3. Be Responsible
Owning your own “stuff” is a very difficult thing to do, but you need to take responsibility for your life, actions and choices if you want a “good karmic score.”
Nobody is perfect. We all mess up sometimes, and that is perfectly okay. What isn’t okay is pretending you are flawless, and have nothing to work on.
The true definition of karma is that you correct your own faults, and you can’t do that if you don’t own it. Or, as Dr. Phil says in Dr. Phil’s Life Laws, you can’t change what you won’t acknowledge. How can you do this? Simply by being honest with yourself.When you do, the road to healing and peace comes faster.
Your actions may have at one point created negative reactions that you did not intend. Own it, correct it, and love your way through it.
When you do this, you create karmic energy that reaps enormous rewards. The area of your life that you need the most miracles in, is the area of your life that you need to own it the most. What is your role in where things stand right now? You can change things. But not until you first own it, and answer that question honestly.

4. Be Patient—Baby Steps, Baby
Rome was not built in a day. If you want that kind of success, all zodiac signs need to take baby steps. But, you need to be taking these baby steps every single day. Are you doing something every day to reap fantastic karmic boomerang?
If so, you are a living example of the definition of karma. Keep doing that! And if you aren’t, start today.
Make it your mission to take one baby step, every day to own your destiny. This could be as simple as paying for the person in front of you in the Starbucks line.
This karma law is about connection. Karma depends on one thing connecting to another, one action creating a reaction. Build connections in your life, between your baby steps, every single day, and you will build your own Rome in time.
5. Just Be
When we want our karmic rewards, we expect them to happen right away. But one of the most fundamental laws of karma is that …that isn’t going to happen.
Patience is the key to all karma being paid forward, no matter what zodiac sign you are. Some zodiac signs, like the Fixed signs Scorpio,Taurus, Leo, and Aquarius are really good at just being and focusing on the moment. Other zodiac signs need some help with this. It takes practice (no matter what zodiac sign you are), and you can start experiencing the rewards of this patience today.
This is why Universe gives us cycles like New Moon cycles and Full Moon cycles. Plant seeds, and wait for them to grow. While you do wait, fill your life with awesome things, and relish in the principle of just…being. And that means, instead of being antsy because your karma hasn’t panned out yet, just…be.
Enjoy this moment. Enjoy this day. And enjoy this process. When you do, you send the message to the Universe that you love and accept the here and now, and are ready to see how the Universe responds or reacts. Sometimes doing nothing, and just being, is doing something.
How Will You Embrace Karma?
Whether you are waiting for your twin flame or a big promotion in your life, by practicing these five simple things you can create the destiny of your dreams. Are you waiting for a karmic boomerang to hit someone? Or are you hoping to reap some of your own?
Make sure to take time to reflect on your intentions, and always ensure that you are trying your best to throw positive energy into the Universe. You never know when this positive energy is going to come right back to you.
