We begin the month of September and head into autumn with a week of very strong energy coming up, with much of it focused in the area of spirituality. It’s a good time to reflect upon your current spiritual practises, how you can strengthen them and how you can share the benefits with others. This isn’t about pushing your views or beliefs upon others. Rather, think of a pebble being cast into a pond and the ripples caused by this: by your positive actions, you will create your own “ripple effect” whereby you inspire those around you. However, this week isn’t only about the spiritual as we have a couple of days that are fantastic for manifesting your goals. We also have Venus turning “direct” after being retrograde since the end of July. So now let’s take a detailed look at what we can expect this week:
Monday August 31st we start the week with a day of strong energy that can either lift you up or drag you down, depending on your state of balance and self-discipline. In the positive sense, today there is great potential for inspiration, creative expression and expanding the higher consciousness. However, if you lack self-discipline and focus you may find yourself over-indulging, daydreaming and going through the day in a state of denial. In order to make the most of today’s energy, have a clear “to do” list for the day and stick to it!
Tuesday September 1st is a high-energy day with the focus on love partnerships, creative expression, sharing ideas and enjoyable activities with others and also manifesting your goals. As there is a very strong aspect of “sharing” today, be aware of how you relate to others and whether or not you are taking actions that benefit everyone involved (rather than only benefitting yourself). In terms of manifesting, focus on that which serves your highest good rather than on selfish desires. Take time to list each of your goals and how you can make each of them a reality. The emphasis here is on manifesting goals through the use of strategy, creativity and positive action/energy. In addition to this, you can sit quietly and visualise each of your goals in their completed forms: visualise with as much detail as possible, engage as many of your senses as possible, truly feel and intend that each goal is now completed. If you are a Reiki 2 (or above) practitioner, make sure you set aside time to work on your Reiki affirmations.
Wednesday September 2nd the intuition will be especially sharp and the energy will be flowing strongly in the area of the spiritual: your spiritual path, practise and expansion. Take time to reflect upon this area of your life and ask yourself the following the questions: can you energise your spiritual life through learning something new? Do you listen to your intuition and allow it to guide you, especially in this area? Do you express your spirituality through your daily actions? The answers to these questions will enable you to take positive action and strengthen the aspect of the spiritual in your daily life, thereby benefitting you and those around you. It’s a good idea to take time for meditation today so that you are better able to receive guidance and insights in the areas mentioned above.
Thursday September 3rd we experience a gentle, flowing energy. The energy supporting spiritual growth and awareness continues from yesterday, so you can continue any work in this area that you have been doing. You may also experience the feeling of being unfocused today. If this is the case, take time for a grounding exercise or meditation.

Friday September 4th is a high-energy day with the focus on spiritual practises and learning, healing and health in general. As with the past two days, take time to reflect upon your spiritual path and practise and what you can do to strengthen this area. It’s also a great idea to set aside time for a full Reiki self-treatment or arrange to receive a treatment from a Reiki (or other healing energy) practitioner, as much can be healed and released today.
Saturday September 5th is a very 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 (5+9+2+0+1+5= 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. If you are a Reiki 2 (or above) practitioner, it’s an especially powerful day to work on your Reiki affirmations.
Sunday September 6th we finish the week with a high-energy day when we have Venus turning “direct” after being retrograde since July 25th. This means that it’s now “full steam ahead” in the areas of relationships, abundance and creative expression… areas which you may have spent time reflecting on since during the retrograde period. Whatever strategies you may have been working on over the past few weeks are now ready to be put into action, but you should act quickly because the time of Mercury retrograde is coming up (starting this month on the 17th and lasting for three weeks), which will mark a period of time when it’s better to make plans and strategies rather than embarking on new projects.
Wishing all of you a wonderful, enriching week ahead!
