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:
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!
