We finish the month of April with some wonderful energy coming up this week. The highlights include “Master Energy” on Wednesday, lots of energy supporting love and relationships, plus have Mercury turning retrograde for the next four weeks. Please read on to find out how you can focus on using the positive aspects of Mercury retrograde for personal growth. So let’s find out how to make the most of the energy this week:
Monday April 25th we begin the week with a day of gentle, flowing energy. Rather than trying to accomplish may tasks or start new projects, it’s a good idea to continue working on existing projects and just “go with the flow” as much as possible.
Tuesday April 26th the energy will be strongly supportive of creative thinking and expression, as well as plenty of inspiration. By consciously using this energy, there is great potential for problem-solving and creating “outside of the box” strategies that yield positive results.
Wednesday April 27th 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 (2+7+4+2+0+1+6= 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.
Bear in mind that if you don’t use today’s energy in a constructive way, you may feel agitated and/or restless. So keep busy today, stay productive and use the energy to your advantage!
Thursday April 28th is a high-energy day when Mercury turns retrograde until May 22nd. 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.
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.
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. It’s also a good idea to reflect upon whether or not you are regularly taking time to relax, recharge and just enjoy the state of “being”. If not, make a true effort to make the time for this. I used to be terrible at doing this until I started making appointments for myself in my diary to do so. I stuck to these appointments until there was no longer any need to write them down and it became natural for me to take time to relax and recharge. Perhaps you, too, may find this to be a helpful habit!
Friday April 29th is a high-energy day that is all about love, relationships, enjoyment and increasing the flow of prosperity in one’s life. What a day of fantastic potential! Use the energy to bring more stability and love to relationships, take time for enjoying life’s pleasures and improving finances through seeking out opportunities. You can also take time 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.
Saturday April 30th we experience energy very similar to what we had a few days ago on Tuesday. This means lots of support in the areas of creative thinking and expression, as well as plenty of inspiration. You can also use this energy by doing some problem-solving and creating “outside of the box” strategies that yield positive results.
Sunday May 1st we begin a new month with a high-energy day that is all about love. Very beautiful energy, indeed! Ideally, spend today with those you love and also take time to reflect upon how you can strengthen your sense of compassion towards yourself and others. When we fill our own hearts with love and compassion, it becomes natural to share this energy with others (rather than seeking or expecting others to provide this). As the pebble cast into a pond causes ripples, so your actions will affect many, so enjoy and share love and kindness!
Wishing all of you a beautiful, positive and fruitful week ahead.
