Weekly Forecast, April 15th - 21st 2019Hello Everyone,

The energy continues to be active this week, although not as strong as it has been recently. The highlights of the week include a day of Master Energy on Monday, and the Full Moon in Libra coming up on Friday. Remember that when the available energy is supporting us in taking action, we need to stay grounded and focused in order to make the most of it. You can avoid the pitfalls of feeling agitated or aimless this week by having clear goals, even a simple “To do” list, as this provides a means of focusing on the task(s) at hand. With that, let's take a detailed look at the energy coming up this week and how to get the most out of it:



Monday April 15th the week begins with a day of high-energy. According to numerology, this day has special energetic significance because the numbers of today’s date add up to the “Master Number” of 22 (1+5+4+2+0+1+9 =22). “22” is known as the “Master Builder”, so today is ideal for starting new projects and furthering work on existing projects and goals (building your future). This is a day to take action, so make the most of it! It’s also a great day to work on manifesting your goals, so ensure that you set aside some time to sit quietly and visualise each of your goals in their completed forms. To make this exercise more effective, try to use as many of your senses as possible (feel, smell, hear… and most of all, intend) when you visualise, and truly intend that each goal is now accomplished. If you are a Reiki 2 (or above) practitioner, it’s an especially powerful day to work on your Reiki affirmations.

In addition to this “Master Energy”, today there is also excellent support for communication, inspired ideas and problem-solving.



Tuesday April 16th there will be plenty of energy available for supporting us in taking action in achieving goals through better organisational skills, having clear objectives and strategies, being responsible and reliable, and staying focused. This focus is important, because if it isn't actively used, this energy can cause one to waste the energy through day-dreaming or other distractions. If it's difficult to stay focused, try something simple such as writing your goals and tasks down and posting them where you can easily see them (in multiple locations, too). You can also set reminders on your phone, and whenever the alert sounds, this reminds you to notice what you are doing at that exact moment (actively using the energy in a fruitful way, or daydreaming etc.). And remember to stay grounded!



Wednesday April 17th communication continues to get good support, with lots of potential for inspirational ideas and constructive discussions. However, make sure that your listening skills are also being used so that you can avoid arguments. Speak with clarity, but also with consideration for the people you are speaking to. Respect other points of view and be open to learning as well as sharing information. Avoid making any sudden decisions today, consider everything carefully (also paying attention to your intuition or “gut instinct”) before taking action.

In addition to the above, today's energy is also supportive of relationships (both friendships and romantic partnerships), and spiritual practises. With relationships, it's a great idea to spend quality time together today.



Thursday April 18th is a high-energy day but you'll need to stay aware and focused on how you use the energy available, otherwise the negative aspect of it can manifest. The positive aspect of today's energy manifests in physical vitality, a positive attitude, successfully working on/completing projects, and good support for increasing your finances through positive action and visualisation/intention techniques for manifesting (Reiki affirmations, Law of Attraction etc.). However, the negative side of this energy can manifest as moodiness, lack of self-discipline and self-control, and carelessness. Have clear goals today, stay focused and you will be able to get the most out of the positive aspects of this energy (rather than letting yourself get dragged down into the negative aspects).



Friday April 19th is a high-energy day when we experience the Full Moon in Libra. Any Full Moon is a good time for “taking stock” and reflecting upon how your life has been flowing since the last Full Moon, as well as seeing what changes or adjustments need to made in order to create a more harmonious flow. However, the influence of Libra places special emphasis on the areas of relationships, finances and creativity. Reflect upon each of these areas and ask yourself whether or not they are in a state of balance, if you need to take a different approach, and whether or not your actions, behaviour and attitude in these areas are serving your highest good. If not, it's time to make some changes or adjustments. The intuition will also be especially strong, so pay attention to it and allow it to guide you in making appropriate changes.

To make the most of today's Full Moon energy, try doing a special meditation. You can do your own meditation, or choose to meditate on all you have to be grateful for in your life, or you can do a Full Moon meditation in the following way:

Sit quietly and comfortably, with the hands resting on the knees (palms facing up), breathing deeply and evenly, whilst contemplating the Moon. Imagine that with every in-breath, your up-turned hands draw in a bright, silvery light from the Moon. See the light enter your hands, travel up to your shoulders, and then to the centre of the chest (where it collects in the heart chakra). This light at the centre of the chest then spreads throughout your body. Continue breathing in the light, spreading it through your body, for as long as it feels right for you. (When you exhale, just allow the breath to leave the body). When you feel/visualise that your entire body is filled with this silvery light, you can then try expanding this light throughout your aura, and beyond.

If you are a Reiki 2 (or above) practitioner, you can sit quietly with the Moon in view (ideally outdoors) and send Reiki to it. Sit quietly and comfortably, prepare your hands for sending Reiki, and draw your 3 Reiki symbols over the Moon. You would then use the Reiki 2 technique of 'Beaming', with the hands 'aimed' at the Moon. In this way, you can tap directly into these lunar energies. Of course, you can use any method of sending Reiki by distance, so go with whatever you prefer.



Saturday April 20th personal vitality, intuition and inspiration are all strongly supported today. It's a day for activities, and perhaps trying something new, although you should think before you act (the energy today is more on the responsible, rather than impulsive, side). Creative activities are also well-aspected. Whatever you decide to do, the one thing to avoid is being lazy because the active energy will cause you to feel agitated or “all over the place”. Pay attention to your intuition and allow it to guide you in using today's energy for your highest good.



Sunday April 21st we finish the week with light, bright energy. Today is very good for spending time with family and friends, as these relationships are blessed with lots of harmonious energy today. Today is also a good one for activities and pursuing your interests, but try to avoid heavy work projects if possible, as the focus today should be on positive activities that you enjoy.



Wishing all of you an enjoyable and positive week ahead!

Many blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast, April 8th - 14th 2019Hello Everyone,

This week we have lots of strong energy, as we experience the peak of three energy cycles! We also have Jupiter turning retrograde on Wednesday, so things should be quite interesting. With that, let's jump right in and take a look at the week coming up, what to expect and how to best use the energy:



Monday April 8th we start the week with a high-energy day as we experience the peak of the energy cycle that started on April 3rd, providing lots of supportive energy for healing, communication, teaching, guidance and learning. There is also great support for creating strategies, planning and putting these strategies into action. In addition to this energy-cycle peak, today there are also good opportunities for bringing more positive and balanced energy into committed relationships. This energy will also highlight any potential issues, so be aware of this so that you can work to create more harmony and balance.



Tuesday April 9th the energy today will be focused on healing and mentoring, with this supportive energy continuing over the next month or so. If you feel a calling to help others using your healing and/or mentoring skills, this is a great time to reflect upon how you can best accomplish this.



Wednesday April 10th the energy will be strong as we experience Jupiter turning retrograde until August 11th. When Jupiter is retrograde, the emphasis is placed upon awareness and inner-growth. This makes it an ideal time to reflect upon your spiritual beliefs, practises and personal philosophy. Are you being honest with yourself? Are you “all talk” or do you back up your beliefs with your actions? During the time of Jupiter retrograde, we can learn much about ourselves in this area and how we can live life with more integrity.

It’s also a good time for foreign travel, new and enriching experiences and furthering one’s education. In terms of business, the greatest rewards will be experienced as a result of connections made and seeds planted in the past. Jupiter is also connected to celebration and enjoying life, so during this retrograde period it’s a good idea to reflect upon whether or not you are enjoying life enough (or perhaps too much/little!).



Thursday April 11th is a high-energy day when we experience the peak of the energy-cycle that started on April 3rd, supporting us in focusing and working on our goals with more intent and personal power, as well as helping us think of strategies to help us to achieve those goals. Think in terms of strategic action, diplomatic communication and steady, continuous effort/action. This energy can be quite intense, so make sure that you actively work with it otherwise you may find yourself feeling “all over the place” or agitated.



Friday April 12th the energy is all about learning, communication and creativity. To make the most of the learning aspect, make an effort to balance your logical side with your intuition. For the communication aspect, be open and flexible with your thinking so that you don't waste time and energy arguing with others who may have differing opinions. When working with the creative aspect of today's energy, it's a great day to work on any creative projects that you may have (whether at work or at home).



Saturday April 13th is a high-energy day when we experience the peak of the energy-cycle that started on April 4th. This cycle brings a harmonious, grounded energy. It also supports strategic thinking, strategic action and good negotiation skills. It's also a good time to reflect upon your significant relationships (especially committed partnerships) and whether or not you express yourself clearly. The energy today also supports us in bringing change and transformation into our lives, whether big or small. Are there some changes that you've been thinking of making recently? If so, today is perfect for putting these changes into action.



Sunday April 14th the week ends with a day of bright, positive energy. Personal vitality should be good, so you can make the most of this energy by doing enjoyable physical activities (especially outdoors), creative activities, or anything else that makes you feel happy and alive! Basically, it is not the day to lounge around doing nothing, so get out there and enjoy the day.



Wishing all of you a wonderful week ahead!

Many blessings,

Chantal

Healing Fire

Weekly Forecast, April 2nd - 7th 2019Hello Everyone,

We had a quiet start to the week yesterday, with gentle, flowing energy. However, the energy will soon increase with plenty of high-energy days until Sunday. There is a lot of energy to work with, so let's take a detailed look at what to expect for the rest of the week and how to best use the energy:



Tuesday April 2nd the energy supports us in opening ourselves to more fully receiving intuitive guidance, and balancing this with our rational thinking. With many people (some would argue that it's with most people), the intuition gets “blocked out” with purely rational thought. Or if one does hear it, the message gets ignored. Take time today to reflect upon whether or not you listen to your intuition (and if so, how often?), and how you can increase the intuitive flow of guidance through regular meditation. Any type of meditation achieves this, through a state of mental stillness. Don't worry about the length of the time taken, just focus on being consistent. A few minutes daily is far more rewarding than aiming for a long meditation once per week or so!

For years, I've been recommending to my students and clients to keep an “intuition journal”. This is a practical way to strengthen your intuition, whilst charting your progress. In the journal, each time you receive a “flash” of intuition, record the date, what the “flash” of intuition or guidance was (whether it's something as simple as “I should take an umbrella with me”, despite good weather) , whether or not you listened to it and what the result was. I'm pretty sure that most of us have experienced that umbrella moment, when a sudden rainstorm comes in the middle of the day and has left us cursing to ourselves, “I knew I should have taken an umbrella!”. But even these moments serve as reminders to us to listen to our intuition and realise that there is so much guidance waiting to be received. When you begin recording these events, and especially if you meditate regularly, you'll experience a noticeable increase in the intuitive guidance received.



Wednesday April 3rd is a high-energy day when we experience the start of four specific energy cycles, with lots of overlap! The first one lasts for 2 ½ weeks and is focused on taking action in starting new projects and ventures or forging ahead with current projects (this theme also ties-in with the upcoming Aries New Moon on Friday), especially those that are in alignment with your true, fulfilling purpose. However, this energy-cycle also encourages us to reflect upon personal power and how we use it. Is it being used to empower and assist others? Or is the dark side of it manifesting, usually showing up as manipulating, controlling or dominating others? This can also be a potentially challenging time, with people or circumstances seeming to be “blocking” your progress. In this case, look again at your state of personal power... you'll find that you're being asked to “step up to the challenge”, that you have the tools to deal with these challenges, and that by overcoming them you will achieve a level of personal mastery. Well worth the effort!

The second energy-cycle lasts for 2 weeks and supports us in focusing and working on our goals with more intent and personal power, as well as helping us think of strategies to help us to achieve those goals. Think in terms of strategic action, diplomatic communication and steady, continuous effort/action. This energy can be quite intense, so make sure that you actively work with it otherwise you may find yourself feeling “all over the place” or agitated.

The third energy-cycle brings a harmonious, grounded energy and lasts for nearly 2 weeks. This energy-cycle supports strategic thinking, strategic action and good negotiation skills. It's also a good time to reflect upon your significant relationships (especially committed partnerships) and whether or not you express yourself clearly.

The fourth energy-cycle lasts for 10 days and provides lots of supportive energy for healing, communication, teaching, guidance and learning. This cycle also empowers the other cycles mentioned above, in that there is great support for creating strategies, planning and putting these strategies into action.



Thursday April 4th is a high-energy day when we will experience a continuation of yesterday's energy and themes.



Friday April 5th is a high-energy day when we experience the New Moon in Aries. Any New Moon is wonderful time for new beginnings, starting projects and taking action. However, the influence of Aries places additional emphasis on the areas of taking the initiative, leadership, entrepreneurship and connecting with/expressing more fully the energies of the first and second chakras. This particular Aries New Moon also strongly supports the areas of healing, as well as increasing the flow of abundance/prosperity into your life.

Remember that Aries is ruled by the “fire” element, so it's important to use this active energy in a positive way, otherwise you may find yourself feeling agitated or restless. There is great potential in the energy today, and to more fully connect with it you may want to try doing a special meditation. You can do your own meditation, or choose to meditate on the themes associated with this Aries New Moon, or you can do a New Moon meditation in the following way:

Sit quietly and comfortably, with the hands resting on the knees (palms facing up), breathing deeply and evenly, whilst contemplating the Moon. Imagine that with every in-breath, your up-turned hands draw in a bright, silvery light from the Moon. See the light enter your hands, travel up to your shoulders, and then to the centre of the chest (where it collects in the heart chakra). This light at the centre of the chest then spreads throughout your body. Continue breathing in the light, spreading it through your body, for as long as it feels right for you. (When you exhale, just allow the breath to leave the body). When you feel/visualise that your entire body is filled with this silvery light, you can then try expanding this light throughout your aura, and beyond.

If you are a Reiki 2 (or above) practitioner, you can sit quietly and use your preferred method of Distance Reiki to send Reiki to the Moon. In this way, you can tap directly into these lunar energies.



Saturday April 6th is a high-energy day. According to numerology, this day has special energetic significance because the numbers of today’s date add up to the “Master Number” of 22 (6+4+2+0+1+9 =22). “22” is known as the “Master Builder”, so today is ideal for starting new projects and furthering work on existing projects and goals (building your future). This is a day to take action, so make the most of it! It’s also a great day to work on manifesting your goals, so ensure that you set aside some time to sit quietly and visualise each of your goals in their completed forms. To make this exercise more effective, try to use as many of your senses as possible (feel, smell, hear… and most of all, intend) when you visualise, and truly intend that each goal is now accomplished. If you are a Reiki 2 (or above) practitioner, it’s an especially powerful day to work on your Reiki affirmations.

In addition to this “Master Energy”, today there is also excellent support for healing any old, emotional wounds that may be triggered today within committed relationships. If you are “triggered” by the words or actions of your partner, it's a good opportunity to communicate openly, honestly and compassionately about the root cause. This also provides the opportunity for you to work together in order to bring about a state of healing and greater harmony.



Sunday April 7th we finish the week with a day of gentler and more settled energy, with good support for learning and harmonious communication. It's also a good day to work on manifesting your goals, especially those associated with prosperity. As with yesterday, take time to sit quietly and visualise/intend your prosperity/abundance goals in their completed forms.



Wishing all of you a positive, productive and empowered week ahead!

Many blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast, March 25th - 31st 2019Hello Everyone,

The energy this week will be less intense than it was last week, although we have good opportunities to manifest prosperity, abundance and goals with “Master” energy on Monday as well as the energy on Friday. But in my opinion, the highlight of the week occurs on Thursday when we experience Mercury turning “direct” after being retrograde since March 5th. There are also good opportunities for business and personal relationships, so please read on for details on what to expect this week and how to best use the energy:



Monday March 25th we start the week with a high-energy day. According to numerology this day has special energetic significance because the numbers of today’s date add up to the “Master Number” of 22 (2+5+3+2+0+1+9 =22). “22” is known as the “Master Builder”, so today is ideal for starting new projects and furthering work on existing projects and goals (building your future). This is a day to take action, so make the most of it! It’s also a great day to work on manifesting your goals, so ensure that you set aside some time to sit quietly and visualise each of your goals in their completed forms. To make this exercise more effective, try to use as many of your senses as possible (feel, smell, hear… and most of all, intend) when you visualise, and truly intend that each goal is now accomplished. If you are a Reiki 2 (or above) practitioner, it’s an especially powerful day to work on your Reiki affirmations.

In addition to this “Master Energy”, today there is also excellent support for personal vitality, leadership and business opportunities.



Tuesday March 26th we can expect a day of gentle, flowing energy. It's a good day to continue work on current projects, or ones that you may have started yesterday. Avoid rushing around, instead focus on current tasks without taking on too much.



Wednesday March 27th we can expect the energy to be very supportive in the areas of creative expression and inspiration, as well as in strengthening connections with those who are nearest and dearest to you.



Thursday March 28th is a high-energy day when we experience Mercury turning “direct” after being retrograde since March 5th. It's time to move forward with any new ventures that you may have put on hold during the retrograde period (including contract signings and major purchases). However, please note that in terms of starting new projects or business ventures, it's advised that you wait until after the next New Moon (which occurs on April 5th). As for any insights you may have gained over the past three weeks related to creative expression, spiritual practises, self-healing (especially old, unresolved emotional issues), efficiency and time management... it's time to put these into action, too!



Friday March 29th we can look forward to some bright, positive energy. It's not about “going with the flow”, it's about “being in the flow”. If you're on the right track, expect things to fall into place almost effortlessly today. Manifesting using intention/visualisation techniques such as Law of Attraction, Reiki affirmations etc. is also greatly supported today. As you did on Monday, take time to sit quietly and visualise each of your goals in their completed forms. To make this exercise more effective, try to use as many of your senses as possible (feel, smell, hear… and most of all, intend) when you visualise, and truly intend that each goal is now accomplished.



Saturday March 30th the energy will be strongly “yin”, or feminine. You can actively use this energy to help you in developing or strengthening the following areas: strategic thinking and planning, negotiation, and harmonious problem-solving. If you are currently dealing with issues at work or within relationships, reflect upon how you can use these “yin” aspects to bring about a state of balance and harmony.



Sunday March 31st we finish the week (and the month!) with a high-energy day focused on committed partnerships (both romantic and work), and how well you communicate within them. Harmonious and clear communication is empowered, creating deeper connections. However, if there are issues with communication (misunderstandings, “crossed lines”, holding back important information or even dishonesty), it's likely that these issues will be brought to the surface today. If this is the case, it's important to take time to reflect upon what actions can be taken by both sides in order to create a better, clearer and deeper state of communication within the partnership. Partnerships are also strengthened today through sharing information, teaching and learning together.

In addition to this focus on communication, the energy today is also very supportive of creative expression and activities.



Wishing all of you a wonderful week ahead!

Many blessings,

Chantal
