Weekly Forecast, Sept 28th- Oct 4th 2015

Hello Everyone,

The exciting event of the week is the Super Full Moon on Monday!  Even for those of you living in other parts of the world where you have experienced this on Sunday the 27th, you’ll still be feeling the effects on Monday.  We also have an “11” Master Vibration day to look forward to.  In between, you can expect energy of less intensity than what we experienced last week.  With all of this recent activity, you may have to do extra work on “grounding” so that you stay focused and on-track.  If you need help in this area, you can read my article on grounding that includes information that everyone can apply:  http://www.healingfire.com/tips-for-grounding-2/  You may also enjoy my free, guided meditation for grounding and energising:  http://www.healingfire.com/mp3/  Now let’s take a detailed look at what we can expect this week:

super full moon aries

Monday September 28th we start the week with a VERY high-energy day. Those in other parts of the world will still be experiencing the intense energy of yesterday’s Super Full Moon, but here in Hong Kong we experience the very powerful Super Full Moon in Aries plus the lunar eclipse today (the eclipse actually occurs in the morning, HK time).  Remember that today’s energy is very supportive of manifesting your goals as well as any work with the Law of Attraction.  Use this energy well by being very clear about what you would like to manifest in your life, down to every detail.  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.

Any Full Moon in Aries carries a strong energy of taking action, especially in the areas of leadership, new beginnings, sexuality and “warriorship”.  At this time, reflect upon these areas and what changes you can make in order to fully express the most positive aspects of them in your life.   Perhaps introducing more stability and productivity into these areas will assist!

The energy of the lunar eclipse acts to strongly enhance the aspects and effects of this Full Moon, as well as adding an element of “service towards others” (especially taking action together with others in order to help others).  Ask yourself what you can do in order to get more involved and make a difference!

This particular “Super” Moon is a very special one, as it will be the closest one to the Earth of the entire year!  Not only will the Moon appear to be much larger in the sky than usual, but the energetic effects are said to be that much more intense due to this proximity.  The intuition will be especially powerful, so make sure you set aside time for meditation and pay attention to any “signs” or intuitive flashes.

You can also try the following Full Moon meditation in order to actively work with the energy:

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.

It’s also a good idea to 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.

 

Tuesday September 29th we’ll still be “buzzing” from yesterday’s intense Super Full Moon, but for some this intense energy can cause one to feel “all over the place”.  If you find yourself experiencing moments of indecision or confusion, it’s important to ground yourself and listen to your intuition or “gut instinct”.  However, there are good possibilities for inspiration in creative expression and projects.

 

Wednesday September 30th the energy will be flowing smoothly in the areas of mental clarity and creative expression.  This is especially helpful in dealing with any indecision or confusion that you may have been experiencing over the past couple of days.  It’s also a very good day to set aside time for spiritual practises as much can be achieved today in terms of “awakening”.  If you’re a Reiki practitioner, try applying extra Reiki to the Crown, 3rd Eye and Heart chakras.

 

Thursday October 1st we start a new month with energy that will be gentle and flowing.  Don’t try to accomplish too many tasks today, instead try to go with the flow as much as possible.  If you do want to start new projects, it’s a good idea to wait until tomorrow when the energy will be more supportive of this.  As tomorrow is a high-energy day, you may notice the energy increase as the day goes on.

 

Friday October 2nd is a VERY high-energy day!  According to numerology, today (2+1+0+2+0+1+5= 11) has a Master 11 energetic vibration: perfect for taking action, working on your goals and building for your future. Today in particular is also very good for working on attracting more prosperity into your life.  Make the most of this strong energy by making sure you set aside time to work on manifesting your goals:  Sit quietly and visualise each of your goals in their completed forms. Work on each goal one by one and try to use as many of your senses as possible (see, feel, etc.). If you’re a Reiki 2 (or above) practitioner, today is fantastic for working on your Reiki affirmations.  Aim high and maintain your focus and self-discipline so you can really make this an incredibly positive day.

 

Saturday October 3rd the energy will be light and bright, perfect for socialising and enjoying the weekend!  Ideally, you should try to enjoy outdoor activities with others.  Today’s energy really doesn’t support being a hermit!  Let go, relax and enjoy the day.

 

Sunday October 4th we finish the week with relaxed, flowing energy.  This energy is also very supportive of healing, so set aside time for a full Reiki (or other energy) treatment, especially if you feel that old issues are getting pushed to the surface today.

 

Wishing all of you a positive and enjoyable week ahead!

 

Many blessings,

Chantal

 

Weekly Forecast, September 21st – 27th 2015

Hello Everyone,

We have some very exciting days coming up this week, in terms of energy.  One highlight is the Autumn Equinox occurring on Wednesday the 23rd (which is also a “22” Master Vibration day).  We also have Pluto turning “direct” on Friday and then the big event:  The “Super” Full Moon in Aries (the biggest “Super Moon” to occur this year) with a total Lunar Eclipse.  This rare combination is also known as a “Blood Moon” due to the reddish colour that the Full Moon takes on during the eclipse.  This event occurs in Hong Kong on Monday the 28th in the morning, so unfortunately for those of us who live in this part of the world, we won’t be able to witness this event (although we’ll be able to experience the energy!).  For those of you in other parts of the world, you can click on this link for information on viewing the eclipse from wherever you are:  http://www.timeanddate.com/eclipse/lunar/2015-september-28  However, please note that in the other areas of the world, the Full Moon and eclipse occur on the 27th. As this is a special event, I’m including it in this week’s Forecast so that have time to prepare, if you choose.

So now let’s take a detailed look at what we can expect during the week:

Autumn Equiox

Monday September 21st we start the week with strong, yet potentially volatile, energy.  It is important to stay conscious and aware today so that the energy can be used for positive action:  creative expression, inspired action and “fighting the good fight”.  If you don’t use the energy wisely, you may find yourself feeling agitated, short-tempered and exhibiting a lack of self-control.  So stay active today and focus on using the energy in the most positive and beneficial ways.

 

Tuesday September 22nd is a high-energy day with the influence being very “Yin” (feminine).  This places the emphasis on strong intuition, creative expression and healing.  Try starting the day with meditation (even just a few minutes!) so that you are better able to receive guidance and intuitive “flashes”.  Your intuition will be especially helpful today in guiding you to bring more harmony to the areas of relationships, personal expression and abundance/prosperity.  In terms of healing, much can be healed and released today in terms of old, painful emotional “wounds”.  For this reason, it’s a great idea to take time for a full healing session today, either a full Reiki (or other energy) self-treatment or receiving a treatment from a practitioner.

 

Wednesday September 23rd is a VERY high-energy day when we experience the combination of the Autumn Equinox and “22” Master Vibration Energy.  On the day of an Equinox, we have nearly equal amounts of daytime and night-time… but it is also significant energetically. The strong themes of today are “balance and stability”, especially in the areas of relationships, partnerships (both professional and personal), productivity and creativity.  This theme is set to continue over the next three months, until we reach the Winter Solstice, so take time today to reflect upon the state of balance within these areas:  are the masculine and feminine energies balanced?  Are you listening to your intuition in order to create positive changes in these areas?  Are you staying balanced and focused in pursuing your goals?  Are you opening your heart to others while also maintaining emotional balance and harmony?  Are you surrounding yourself with those who are balanced and supportive?  The answers to these questions can help you to begin to take action and rebalance, grow and produce a “shift” to the next level.

Bear in mind that today that the influence of “Master Energy” can provide a very powerful “boost” to your activities! 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+3+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.

You can also do a special today for the Autumn Equinox in order to better connect with the energy.

Try to meditate in nature (really make an effort to get out there!), but this meditation can be done anywhere:

Sit quietly and comfortably, breathing deeply and evenly. As you breathe in, imagine white light entering through your crown chakra (the top of your head) and travelling down to your heart chakra (in the middle of your chest). At the same time, imagine white light travelling up from the Earth, through the 1st chakra, and up to your heart. Simply allow your out-breath to leave your body. Continue to breathe in light from the heavens and the Earth into your heart chakra… see your heart chakra glowing and growing…. expanding with each in-breath. Continue until this white light expands through your aura, and beyond. If you are a Reiki practitioner, you can place your hands over the heart chakra during this meditation. This meditation is very energising and balancing, and will allow you to deeply connect with the today’s special energy!

 

Thursday September 24th is a high-energy day when we will still be feeling some of the effects from yesterday.  The “yin” (feminine) energy is flowing strongly, so the intuition will be stronger than usual.  Pay attention to any signs as well as your “gut instinct” and expect some “flashes” of inspiration!  There is also an emphasis on healing (both self-healing and the healing of others) and service to others.  You can continue to work on any issues that may have surfaced over the past couple of days.

 

Friday September 25th the energy will be strongly supportive in taking action in the areas of transformation and personal power as we experience Pluto turning “direct” after being retrograde since mid-April.  Reflect over the past five months:  the insights you have gained into your spiritual beliefs and practises as well as transformation etc., are now ready to be put into action.  It’s time to gather your strength and will, and focus on overcoming any obstacles and finishing projects that you have been working on during this time.

 

Saturday September 26th will be the most “laid-back” day of the week.  There has been so much activity over the past few days and things are going to be VERY active when we experience the upcoming Super Full Moon, so allow yourself to take things easy today as much as possible.

 

Sunday September 27th the energy will continue to build during the day as we approach tomorrow’s very powerful Super Full Moon in Aries plus the lunar eclipse.  Today you can take time to prepare for tomorrow, perhaps by reflecting upon how you would like to use the very intense energy.  Also be aware that today’s energy is very supportive of manifesting your goals as well as any work with the Law of Attraction.  Use this energy well by being very clear about what you would like to manifest in your life, down to every detail.  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.

 

Tonight in Hong Kong we will be celebrating the Mid-Autumn Festival, but I’m including information about tomorrow’s Lunar events for those of you living in countries that will be experiencing them today:

Any Full Moon in Aries carries a strong energy of taking action, especially in the areas of leadership, new beginnings, sexuality and “warriorship”.  At this time, reflect upon these areas and what changes you can make in order to fully express the most positive aspects of them in your life.   Perhaps introducing more stability and productivity into these areas will assist!

The energy of the lunar eclipse acts to strongly enhance the aspects and effects of this Full Moon, as well as adding an element of “service towards others” (especially taking action together with others in order to help others).  Ask yourself what you can do in order to get more involved and make a difference!

This particular “Super” Moon is a very special one, as it will be the closest one to the Earth of the entire year!  Not only will the Moon appear to be much larger in the sky than usual, but the energetic effects are said to be that much more intense due to this proximity.  The intuition will be especially powerful, so make sure you set aside time for meditation and pay attention to any “signs” or intuitive flashes.

You can also try the following Full Moon meditation in order to actively work with the energy:

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.

It’s also a good idea to 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.

There are also some in the media who are talking about this “Super” Full Moon as being a sign of the apocalypse, or an opportunity to greatly raise one’s vibration.  Personally, I don’t buy into the “fear culture” of an impending apocalypse.  Besides the logical reasons for this, living in fear does nothing but attract more fear and lower one’s energy levels and vibration.  And whether or not you believe that this is an opportunity for a great shift in consciousness, you can still get a lot of enjoyment from spiritual practises today:  meditation, Reiki, yoga, tai chi, qigong etc.

 

Wishing all of you a magical and positive week ahead!

 

Many blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast, Sept 14th – 20th 2015

Hello Everyone,

We have an interesting week ahead, with a mix of high-energy days as well as challenging days.  In particular, we have Mercury turning retrograde on Thursday.  This brings a few weeks of potential challenges in the area of communication, yet also the potential to recognise any “weak spots” and then change for the better.  With that, let’s take a detailed look at what we can expect this week:

mercury retrograde

Monday September 14th the strong energy of yesterday continues as we start the week with 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 (1+4+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.

 

Tuesday September 15th the energy will be gentle and flowing, so rather than starting new projects or trying to accomplish many tasks, it’s a good idea to continue to work on existing projects and not push yourself too hard.  We’ve just experienced a couple of high-energy days in a row, so appreciate a calmer day today.

 

Wednesday September 16th the energy will be flowing strongly in the areas of creativity, mental pursuits and self-expression.  However, there is also the potential to feel “all over the place” so it’s a good idea to start the day with a grounding exercise or meditation.  For information on different grounding practises, you can check out this article that I wrote on the subject:  http://www.healingfire.com/tips-for-grounding-2/ or you can also try my free guided meditation for Grounding and Energising:  http://www.healingfire.com/mp3/

 

Thursday September 17th we experience Mercury turning retrograde until October 9th.  This will be the last time this year that Mercury turns retrograde (which will be good news for many).  Mercury retrograde often gets a “bad rap” because of the likelihood of problems and mix-ups in the areas of communication, travel and technology.  However, this can actually be a great time to sort out shortcomings and “blind spots” as these issues are revealed.

During the time of Mercury retrograde, it’s advisable to double-check and reconfirm all travel plans, back up all electronic data, be clear with all forms of communication and avoid (if possible) signing new contracts.  If you must sign new contracts, be very careful to check all of the details and fine print.  This particular retrograde time also affects partnerships quite strongly, so be aware of this so that you can avoid misunderstandings in communication.  As mentioned previously, you can also use this time to grow:  if you do experience difficulties, pay attention to what you need to learn.  Do you need to improve your communication skills?  Are you prone to rushing into things without checking details?  Are you expressing yourself clearly and with compassion?  Do you need to listen more carefully to others?  Perhaps there are also lessons in being more patient with others and not jumping to conclusions.

 

Friday September 18th the energy will be supporting us in clarifying our goals and future plans.  This is very important in order to maintain focus and use the energy available wisely.  If there are important decisions to be made, carefully consider all options before taking action.  If you are having difficulty in making decisions, it can be very helpful to seek the guidance of those you trust.

 

Saturday September 19th is a high-energy day with great potential in taking action and achieving goals, but this also comes with a warning:  be aware of the importance of trusting your “gut instinct” when making decisions today as there is also potential for being misled.  If something (or someone) doesn’t feel right, pay attention and proceed with caution.

 

Sunday September 20th we finish the week with some fantastic, light, bright energy!  It’s a great day for enjoyment, fun, taking part in outdoor activities and sharing the day with others.  What a lovely way to end the week!

 

Wishing all of you a positive and productive week ahead.

Many blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast, September 7th – 13th 2015

Hello Everyone,

We have some interesting energy coming up this week, with a lot of emphasis on health and well-being.  The big day comes at the end of the week when we experience a New Moon in Virgo plus the influence of a solar eclipse on Sunday.  However, there will be lots of strong energy throughout the week… but be prepared to be challenged.  The energy can either make you feel quite agitated, or you can use the energy for healing, improving health and being open to changing your attitudes.  So now let’s take a detailed look at what we can expect:

New Moon in Virgo

New Moon in Virgo

Monday September 7th we start the week with a high-energy day and the focus on communication and ideas.  What can you do in order to express yourself and your ideas in a more harmonious way?  Perhaps more lightness and diplomacy can be considered, as well as listening to those you are interacting with.  With regards to ideas, there is much potential for inspiration today as well as moments of being challenged on positions that you may be clinging to.  Rather than reacting, take a step back and consider whether or not it is time for you to change your attitude and approach.

 

Tuesday September 8th the intuition will be especially strong, so be prepared to take action on any flashes of inspiration.  It’s a good idea to start the day with meditation (even just a few minutes!) so that you are better able to receive guidance and “messages”.  The energy will also be flowing strongly in the area of healing, especially in dealing with old patterns and unresolved issues.  If you find yourself reacting strongly or even aggressively with others, it’s time to examine the root of what “buttons” are being pushed.  What fears are being triggered?  Are there any power or ego issues?  The answers to these questions will allow you to take positive steps in healing and releasing the root cause(s).

 

Wednesday September 9th the energy will be rather mixed.  There is potential, but you must stay focused and balanced in order to make the most of it.  The positive expression of today’s energy manifests in open, honest and compassionate communication.  The negative expression manifests in selfish and dishonest behaviour as well as aggressive communication.  Even if you stay balanced and in a positive state of mind today, be aware that those who are unbalanced may be very challenging to be around!

 

Thursday September 10th is a high-energy day with the focus on health, healing, well-being and service towards others.  Take a few minutes to reflect upon your own state of health:  physical, emotional, mental and spiritual.  What changes can you make in order to improve/strengthen these areas?  It’s also a good idea to think about ways in which you can use your own talents and strengths to improve the well-being of others.  As the focus is on health, it’s a great idea to set aside time for a full Reiki (or other healing energy) treatment.

 

Friday September 11th the energy will be rather gentle and “low-key”.  Rather than starting new projects today, it’s a good idea to just go with the flow as much as possible.  Don’t rush around or try to get too much accomplished, otherwise you may end up feeling drained.  The weekend will be filled with lots of strong energy, so save all of the action for then!

 

Saturday September 12th is a high-energy day that will be very much like what we experienced on Thursday.  The focus will be on our state of health and healing.  As with Thursday, think about what changes you can make in order to improve your state of health on all levels.  Can you adopt healthier eating habits?  Exercise more often?  Practise a method of self-healing?  Practise meditation regularly?  Ask yourself these and other related questions and then take action!  Perhaps some big changes need to be made, or perhaps some small adjustments.

 

Sunday September 13th we finish the week with a day of VERY strong energy.  Today we experience the New Moon in Virgo as well as the energy of a solar eclipse (visible only from parts of North and South America).  It is said that the energy of the solar eclipse strongly amplifies the energy of this New Moon.  The time of any New Moon is one of new beginnings and fresh starts, but the aspect of Virgo places the emphasis on health (quite a theme this week!), healing, assisting others and doing things more practically and efficiently.

As the energy is strong today, it’s a great idea to start the day with a grounding practise or something such as Reiki, yoga, tai chi etc.  If you are a Reiki practitioner, apply extra Reiki to the first chakra, legs and feet.  In fact, it’s great if you can experience a healing session today (either a self-treatment or receiving a treatment from a practitioner) as much can be released, thereby quickening the process of transformation.

It’s also advisable to take time to reflect on the themes mentioned above and what changes you can make. In order to connect more fully with the energy of today, you can also try doing a New Moon 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 New 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. You could also use a photo of the Moon or any other method of Distance Reiki that you prefer.  In this way, you can tap directly into these lunar energies.

I should also mention that New Moon energy is always great for working on manifesting your goals, so set aside time to visualise each of your goals in their completed forms.  Use as many of your senses as possible.  Truly feel and intend that each goal is now achieved.  If you are a Reiki 2 (or above) practitioner, you should work on your Reiki affirmations.

 

Wishing all of you a wonderful week filled with healing and breakthroughs!

 

Many blessings,

Chantal
