After so many high-energy days last week, you’ll notice that things will be “quieter” this week. However, we will experience the Full Moon in Aquarius on Friday, which brings in lots of strong energy. We also have Saturn turning “direct” on Saturday, so as the week goes on you may find yourself feeling “pushed” to take action. We also finish off July and begin the month of August, when we can expect the energy to flow strongly in the areas of creative expression and creating a better sense of balance in all areas of life. Now let’s take a detailed look at what we can expect this week:
Monday July 27th we start the week with a day of strong intuition that can assist you greatly in creating clarity in areas that may have been causing you stress due to uncertainty. I strongly recommend starting the day with meditation (even just a few minutes is beneficial!) so that you are better able to receive guidance and inspiration. Take time to reflect upon any areas of difficulty and as you do so, be aware of any “gut feelings” that you have. Pay attention to any signs and LISTEN to your intuition!
Tuesday July 28th is a day of quiet, flowing energy. Rather than pushing ahead with plans and goals, it’s preferable to just “go with the flow” as much as possible today and continue to put energy into existing projects.
Wednesday July 29th the energy will be supportive in the areas of self-expression (especially in a creative sense) and mental exercises such as research and finding logical solutions to any current issues. Make good use of this energy to assist you in achieving breakthroughs!
Thursday July 30th is a day of gentle, flowing energy. As with Tuesday, rather than pushing ahead with plans and goals, it’s preferable to just “go with the flow” as much as possible today and continue to put energy into existing projects. As tomorrow is a high-energy day, you may notice the energy increasing as the day goes on.
Friday July 31st is a very high-energy day when we experience the Full Moon in Aquarius and a Blue Moon! When there are two Full Moons within one month, the second one is considered to be a “Blue Moon” and although this isn’t a rare occurrence, it doesn’t happen too frequently, either. Any Full Moon is a high-energy time that encourages us to reflect upon how our goals are progressing and coming to fruition. It’s also a time of “fullness” or abundance. The influence of Aquarius highlights the aspects of expressing your true-self openly, strengthening and connecting better with the intuition, and using your unique talents to assist others and walk your life-path with strength and conviction. Take time to reflect upon these areas and consider what changes may need to be made in order to awaken them and/or bring them into balance.
This Full Moon also brings with it an energy of abundance and prosperity, so take time to reflect upon this: what changes can you make in order to improve the flow of this into your life? You should also set aside at least 10-15 minutes to work on visualising your goals in their completed forms. Use as many of your senses as possible, intend and feel that each goal is truly accomplished. If you are a Reiki 2 (or above) practitioner, it’s a great day to work on your Reiki affirmations.
In order to make the best use of the energy today, you can try a Full Moon meditation: you can meditate on all you have to be grateful for in your life, or you can do a Full Moon meditation in the following ways:
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.
You can also get together with friends to experience the special energy! You can do a group meditation, or even just enjoy an evening meal ‘al fresco’. Appreciate the Moon, and feel a sense of gratitude for the beauty of nature, and the love from those around us.
Saturday August 1st we begin a new month with the energy focused in the areas of spiritual practises and creative expression. If you aren’t grounded, this energy may cause you to feel “all over place” with difficulty focusing. If this is the case for you, take time for a grounding exercise: go for a walk in nature (ideally barefoot), apply Reiki (or other energy) to the first chakra, legs and feet or try a grounding meditation.

Sunday August 2nd we finish the week with a high-energy day that sees Saturn turning “direct” after being retrograde since March 14th. Whatever plans you’ve been making or pondering since March are now ready to be put into action! Take responsibility, make strategies and create a clear schedule for implementation. You should also think about what habits and methods you need to change in order to do this.
It’s also a great time to think about how you can do more in terms of service to others and to assess “where you’re at” on your healing path. Ask yourself what actions you can take NOW in order to further yourself on this path of healing, both for yourself and for others. The intuition will be especially strong today, so listen to your “gut instinct” and take time for meditation so that you are better able to receive guidance and insight regarding your current situation and strategies for the future.
Wishing all of you a wonderful week ahead!
