Weekly Forecast, Jan. 25th – 31st 2016

Hello Everyone,

This week, the good news is that Mercury turns “direct”, so we should experience smoother communication and a greater sense of being able to move forward.  There are some good high-energy days as well, but we also have three consecutive days of “quiet” energy.  This is rather unusual, but I see it as an opportunity to slow down a bit and reflect upon plans and strategies for the new year.  Let’s take a detailed look at how we can best use this energy coming up:

Mercury Direct

Mercury Direct

Monday January 25th we begin the week with a high-energy day when we will still be feeling the effects of yesterday’s Full Moon, plus we have Mercury turning “direct” after being retrograde since January 5th. You may be feeling motivated to start new projects, but it’s actually a better idea to wait until the energy has settled down a bit and is more supportive of new initiatives, specifically the time period following the New Moon on February 8th.  For today, the intuition will be especially strong, so allow it to guide you in making plans and creating strategies which can be implemented after the New Moon.  You can also use this time to reflect upon what you need to release before the beginning of the new Lunar year.  It may be old habits, relationships, thought-patterns etc.  Whatever is holding you back, it’s time to let go!

 

Tuesday January 26th the energy will be gentle and flowing.  Rather than trying to accomplish many tasks, it’s a good idea to just “go with the flow” as much as possible.

 

Wednesday January 27th we have a day of “low-key” energy.  Focus on working on existing projects rather than starting new ones.  You can also take time to continue to reflect upon what you need to release and how you can accomplish this.

 

Thursday January 28th we have another day of gentle, “low-key” energy.  We haven’t had three consecutive days like these in a long time!   As mentioned above, continue working on existing projects and goals.  If you’re feeling frustrated at any lack of progress, it’s time to take a step back and reflect upon what may be “blocking” you.  What blockages exist within you?  That which manifests in our lives around us is a clear indication of our inner-state.  Again, reflect upon what needs to be healed, released or changed within yourself in order to move forward with ease.

 

Friday January 29th the energy will be flowing strongly in the area of healing, specifically in the area of healing relationship issues/imbalances.  Take time to reflect upon the state of your relationships (both romantic and friendship).  Are they healthy and balanced?  If not, look within yourself and find out why you attract certain people and circumstances into your life.  What remains to be healed within you?  Do you seek others to “complete” you?  Do you expect others to provide happiness in your life?  Very often, an imbalance or issue within a relationship is an indication of what we still haven’t resolved or healed within ourselves.  Much can be achieved today with regards to healing and releasing these issues, so use the energy well.

 

Saturday January 30th is a high-energy day with plenty of energy flowing in the area of creative expression, relationships and increasing prosperity.  The intuition will also be especially strong, so it’s a good idea to start the day with meditation (even just a few minutes!) so that you’re better able to receive guidance and intuitive “flashes” today.  You can also continue to work on healing and strengthening relationships.  Regarding increasing prosperity, continue to put energy into current projects.  You should also take time to sit quietly and visualise any goals in this area, using as many of your senses as possible.  If you are a Reiki 2 (or above) practitioner, make sure to work on your Reiki affirmations, especially those relating to attracting abundance and prosperity.

 

Sunday January 31st we finish the week (and the month!) with a day of high-energy.  Today, the focus is transformation on all levels: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.  Expect to be inspired!  The intuition will also be especially strong today, so listen to your inner-voice (or “gut instinct”) and allow it to guide you in the transformational process.  It’s a good idea to start the day with meditation so that you’re better able to receive guidance and intuitive “flashes”.  Open yourself to changing old habits, especially in areas of your life that feel “stuck” or stagnant.  Embrace change and don’t be afraid to stand out from the crowd!

 

Wishing all of you a wonderful week ahead!

Many blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast, Jan. 18th – 24th 2016

Hello Everyone,

We have some great energy to look forward to this week, the highlight being the Full Moon in Leo on Sunday.  However, we will also have some powerful days during the week with great potential for healing and transformation.  Remember, you need to consciously use the energy in order to reap the full benefits of it.  Let’s take a look at how we can do this:

Full Moon in Leo

Full Moon in Leo

Monday January 18th we begin the week with a day of strong intuition and plenty of energy supporting awareness and insight in the area of significant relationships.  Listen to your “gut feeling” today and allow this to guide your actions.  All energy practises are also greatly enhanced today:  Reiki, qigong, tai chi, yoga etc.  If you are a practitioner of any type of “energy work”, make sure you set aside for a full session!  There is also good potential for increasing the flow of prosperity, so take action in this area through networking and strengthening your business.  If you do any work with the “Law of Attraction”, today is a great day to do so.  If you are a Reiki 2 (or above) practitioner, take time to work on your abundance and prosperity affirmations.

 

Tuesday January 19th the energy is all about healing as well as guiding or mentoring others.  As much can be healed/released today, make sure you take time for a full Reiki (or other healing) session through self-treatment or receiving a treatment from a practitioner.  In terms of mentoring, open yourself to sharing your knowledge and expertise with those who may be seeking your guidance.

 

Wednesday January 20th is a high-energy day with the focus on transformation on all levels: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.  Expect to be inspired!  The intuition will also be especially strong today, so listen to your inner-voice (or “gut instinct”) and allow it to guide you in the transformational process.  It’s a good idea to start the day with meditation (even just a few minutes!) so that you’re better able to receive guidance and intuitive “flashes” today.  Open yourself to changing old habits, especially in areas of your life that feel “stuck” or stagnant.  Embrace change and don’t be afraid to stand out from the crowd!

 

Thursday January 21st the energy will be gentle and flowing.  Rather than starting new projects or trying to accomplish many tasks, it’s a good idea to just “go with the flow” as much as possible today.

 

Friday January 22nd we have a high-energy day that will be very much like what we experienced on Wednesday.  The energy is focused on the area of transformation, with plenty of inspiration and strong intuition to assist this process.  Please refer to Wednesday’s info (above) for details on how to best use this energy.

 

Saturday January 23rd the energy will be flowing strongly in the area of relationships of all types, specifically focusing on the “give and take” of energy within them.  You can do this by setting aside time to analyse the relationships in your life, taking on the role of the “observer” in order to be as impartial as possible.  If you consistently feel “drained” after spending time with certain people, it’s time to consider cutting ties.  If dealing with some people always involves drama, again, it’s time to consider ending the relationship.  All of us have had to deal with “energy vampires”, but whether or not you allow them in your life is your choice.  It’s time to stop feeling sorry for people who use their never-ending dramas to “guilt” you into continuing any type of relationship.  Cut them off!  On the other hand, you’ll find that some of your relationships enhance your sense of well-being.  These are the ones you should focus more of your energy on!  Mutual support, love and respect are the ideal.  By making the choice to only share your energy with those who are on the same wavelength, you’ll find that you will feel much happier and more energised.

 

Sunday January 24th is a VERY high-energy day when we experience the Full Moon in Leo.  The element governing Leo is “fire”, which is a very strong and active energy.  There is also an emphasis on leadership, enjoyment, playfulness and taking bold action.  It’s a good idea to reflect upon state of these areas in your life and whether or not they are balanced.  For example, do you find that you take too many risks or perhaps are too cautious?  Do you balance work with rest and relaxation?  Do you allow yourself to express your creativity and playfulness?  The answers to these questions will allow you to see where adjustments and changes need to be made in order to create a healthy state of balance in your life.  As the energy today can be very intense for some, be aware of emotional upsets.  If you do find yourself reacting (having your “buttons pushed”), try to take a step back so that you may discover the root cause.  Remember that you are being shown what you still need to heal/release within yourself!  However, for the most part, there is great potential in the energy today.  In order to make the most of it, stay active and use the energy to your advantage.

An effective means of tapping into this energy is through 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 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, if weather permits) 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.

What a beautiful ending to the week, I hope all of you enjoy it!

 

Wishing all of you a wonderful week ahead.

Many blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast, Jan. 11th – 17th 2016

Hello Everyone,

The energy will be much more settled this week, without any “intense” days.  Instead, we have opportunities to further one’s career and create more harmony and balance within relationships and partnerships of all types.  Keep a steady approach this week and you should be able to make the most of the energy.  So let’s take a detailed look at what’s coming up this week:

Do-what-you-love

Monday January 11th we start the week with energy that is gentle and flowing.  Rather than trying to accomplish many tasks or start new projects, it’s a good idea to work on existing projects and just “go with the flow” as much as possible.

 

Tuesday January 12th the emphasis is on creative expression and relationships.  Regarding these two areas of life, it’s a good idea to take a step back and reflect upon how you can improve these by taking a different (even unconventional!) approach.  The intuition will be especially strong today, so this can greatly assist in this process.  In order to make the most of your intuition, pay attention to your “gut instinct” and start the day with meditation (even just a few minutes) as this will allow you to better receive guidance and intuitive messages.

 

Wednesday January 13th the energy is all about productivity, especially in furthering one’s career.  This can be achieved by being creative in your ideas and approach, as well as focusing your energy in a steady manner.  Rather than making a huge effort and then doing little, the energy needs to be maintained constantly and evenly.  Positive growth and healing can also be applied to the area of relationships today, so it’s worth taking the time to reflect upon the state of the significant relationships in your life and what you can do to further strengthen and improve them.

 

Thursday January 14th the energy will be flowing strongly in the areas of communication and learning, especially in terms of career/business.  Creativity also gets a boost of energy.  As with yesterday, this energy can also be used to further one’s career.  You can help this process by reflecting upon whether or not you are putting your inspired ideas into action, as well as whether or not you are working in an area that fulfils you.  Create a strategic plan that will enable you to make these a reality!

 

Friday January 15th we have a day of gentle, flowing energy.  Continue working on existing projects and don’t rush around trying to accomplish too many tasks.

 

Saturday January 16th is a high-energy day with the focus on creative expression, personal projects and healing/strengthening relationships.  It’s a good idea to reflect upon your state of personal freedom and expression.  Do you have the personal freedom within relationships and work that is necessary for your growth and happiness?  Do you put your inspired ideas into action?  Are you open to new experiences within these areas? Much can be accomplished today, but remember to take time to reflect upon these questions so that your career and relationships can be empowered in the most positive ways.

 

Sunday January 17th we finish the week with a day of light, bright energy.  It’s a great day to spend time with friends and loved ones, but be careful with finances.  Today isn’t the day for a shopping spree!  Rather, take part in activities that “feed the soul”.  Simple pleasures shared, outdoor activities (weather permitting!), creative pursuits… all of these are wonderful ways to enjoy the day.

 

Wishing all of you a smooth and productive week ahead.

Many blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast, Jan. 4th – 10th 2016

Hello Everyone,

We have some very interesting energy this week:  Mercury and Jupiter both turning retrograde as well as the New Moon in Capricorn (with some Master energy thrown in, too!).  To get us off to a good start in the New Year, there is plenty of energy supporting transformation and personal growth, but you’ll need to actively use this energy in order to benefit from it.  So let’s take a detailed look at what we can expect this week and how we can use this energy:

Capricorn New Moon

Capricorn New Moon

Monday January 4th we start the week with “low-key” energy.  Rather than starting new projects or trying to get lots of tasks accomplished, it’s a good idea to go with the flow as much as possible and focus on working on existing projects.

 

Tuesday January 5th we have Mercury turning retrograde until the 25th of this month.  Mercury retrograde often gets a “bad rap” because of the increased 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 certain 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.

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.

During this particular Mercury retrograde (as it occurs during the time of Aquarius) it’s also beneficial to reflect upon whether or not you express your true self, whether or not you are using your time wisely or working too hard/too little.

Working on the inner self is strongly supported during a time of Mercury retrograde.  Use this time wisely by being aware of when your buttons are being pushed and then clearing the root issue that causes this reaction in the first place.

 

Wednesday January 6th the energy will be focused mainly in the areas of partnerships and committed relationships.  These can be greatly strengthened today by actively working with the energy.  Remember that the more you put into your partnerships, the more you and those involved will benefit.

 

Thursday January 7th is a high-energy day with the focus on big changes and transformation, particularly in the areas of business and career.  It’s important to trust your intuition and express your true self, even if your ideas are unconventional.

Today we also have Jupiter turning retrograde until May 9th.  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!).

 

Friday January 8th the emphasis is on relationships as well as creating a better sense of balance in life.  Regarding relationships, problems can arise as old issues are pushed to the surface.  See this as an opportunity to heal and release these issues so that relationships can be strengthened.  In healthy and balanced relationships, today provides opportunities for even greater stability.

In order to create a better balance in life, take time to reflect upon the following and use your answers as a starting point for taking positive action:  do you give yourself enough “alone time” in order to recharge?  Is your work/life balance healthy?  Are you setting a good example to others in how you live your life?

There are also great opportunities for healing today, so make time for a self-treatment or arrange to receive a healing treatment from a Reiki (or other healing energy) practitioner.

 

Saturday January 9th is a high-energy day with the focus on creative expression, personal projects and healing/strengthening relationships.  It’s a good idea to reflect upon your state of personal freedom and expression.  Do you have the personal freedom within relationships and work that is necessary for your growth and happiness?  Do you put your inspired ideas into action?  Are you open to new experiences within these areas? Much can be accomplished today, but remember to take time to reflect upon these questions so that your career and relationships can be empowered in the most positive ways.

 

Sunday January 10th is a VERY high-energy day when we experience an “11 Master Vibration” energy day in addition to the New Moon.  According to numerology, today’s (1 +0+1+2+0+1+6 =11) Master 11 energetic vibration makes it 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 ensuring 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.). Truly intend that each goal is now accomplished.  If you’re a Reiki 2 (or above) practitioner, today is fantastic for working on your Reiki affirmations.

The other big event of the day is the New Moon in Capricorn.  What a great combination with “Master Energy”!  Any New Moon is great for new beginnings and fresh starts, but the influence of Capricorn places additional emphasis in the areas of personal responsibility, creating a healthy work/life balance, using time well and taking good care of oneself.

There is also strong energy supporting dramatic personal transformation during this New Moon!   Take action and make changes that serve your highest good, especially in the area of “release”.  Let go of any stagnant or toxic relationships (if it isn’t possible to completely release these, at least decide on making minimal contact).  Do a big house-clearing, get rid of any possessions that don’t contribute something positive to your life and organise any “clutter”.  What’s more, this is a great time to release the old patterns/habits/thoughts that are holding you back.  Write these down on a piece of paper and then burn them, intending that they are completely released.  Then, create a clear strategy for moving forward without these old “things” dragging you down.

Connecting with the energy of the New Moon is another great way of actively using today’s energy.  This can be achieved through 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 and send Reiki to it by distance. 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. Of course, you can also use any other method of distance Reiki that you may prefer (photograph etc.).  In this way, you can tap directly into these lunar energies.

 

Wishing all of you a wonderfully positive start to the year this week!

Many blessings,

Chantal
