Weekly Forecast, July 25th – 31st 2016

Hello Everyone,

After experiencing so many days of intense energy over the past few weeks, it may come as a relief to know that this week we have lots of opportunities for resting, relaxing and recharging.  Over half of this week is comprised of days of gentle, flowing energy!  However, we still have three days of powerful energy, the big event being Uranus turning retrograde on Friday.  So now let’s take a detailed look at the energy this week, what we can expect and how to make the most of it.

Uranus Retrograde

Uranus Retrograde

Monday July 25th we begin the week with a day of gentle, flowing energy.  Rather than starting new projects or trying to accomplish many tasks, it’s a good idea to work on existing projects and just “go with the flow” as much as possible.

 

Tuesday July 26th we experience a second day of “gentle” energy.  As with yesterday, continue to work on current projects.  It’s also a good idea to take part in activities that rebalance, relax and recharge you, such as a yoga or tai-chi session, Reiki (or other energy) treatment or even just a calming walk in nature.

 

Wednesday July 27th is a high-energy day with plenty of strong, positive energy supporting breakthroughs, especially in the areas of teaching, guidance and healing.  In teaching, be aware of how you can be the one providing inspiration for others.  Regarding healing, it’s a great day to work on any old, stubborn issues.

 

Thursday July 28th we have a day of gentle, flowing energy.  As with the energy we experienced at the beginning of the week, continue to work on current projects and make an effort to take time to relax, rest and recharge.

 

Friday July 29th is a high-energy day when we experience Uranus turning retrograde until December 29th.  The effects of Uranus tend to be more pronounced during a retrograde period.  One especially strong effect is an awakening, or re-awakening, of a desire to break free of any restrictions, confines or stagnant areas of life.  If you find yourself experiencing this, it is advisable to examine the situation carefully and then create a clear strategy for breaking free and moving forward.  However, it is better to wait until Uranus turns “direct” again before actually putting the plan into action.  Uranus influences the intuition and inventiveness, so we can expect powerful moments of inspiration and guidance that can assist in making plans for more freedom and life changes.  We are also strongly supported in expressing our true-selves clearly and openly.

There is great potential during a time of Uranus retrograde, but be aware that if you living in a state of imbalance, it can be a very challenging time.  Clear signs of this include feeling agitated or irritable, nervous or anxious for little or no apparent reason.  There can also be a strong sense of everything “being out of control”.  If you experience any of these things, it is important to first GROUND yourself and then take stock of each area of your life (relationships, health and well-being, career, finances etc.).  Any area that is stagnating or in a state of disharmony is a clear indication that changes need to be made, so take this opportunity of Uranus retrograde to create a plan of change and action.  Once you begin this process, you’ll find yourself feeling more peaceful, fulfilled and balanced on all levels.

 

Saturday July 30th there will be lots of energy supporting the areas of healing and service to others.  Take time for a full healing session, either a self-treatment or receiving a treatment from an energy-healing practitioner, as much can be healed and released today.  Regarding service to others, reflect upon how you can use your talents and abilities in order to assist others.

 

Sunday July 31st we finish the week (and the month!) with a day of gentle, flowing energy.  It’s an ideal day to just relax and let go.  We have some days of intense energy coming up in the first week of August, so make the most of enjoying today.

 

Wishing all of you an enjoyable, more relaxing week ahead!

Many blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast, July 18th – 24th 2016

Hello Everyone,

We have a week of strong energy coming up, the highlights being the Capricorn Full Moon on Tuesday and a Master Energy day on Sunday.  Throughout the week we will experience strong “Yin” (feminine) energy, details of which I have included in Monday’s forecast.  Suffice to say, there is a huge emphasis on staying grounded and taking practical action in order to balance and strengthen different areas of your life.  If you would like to work on your grounding, I have included lots of practical information in the following article:  http://www.healingfire.com/tips-for-grounding/ and you can also try my free, guided meditation for Grounding and Energising here:  http://www.healingfire.com/mp3/   So now let’s take a detailed look at what we can expect this week:

Capricorn full moon

Monday July 18th we start the week with a high-energy day that sets the tone for the entire week.   The key theme is balancing and integrating the feminine aspects and energies of the self (no matter whether you are male or female).  These aspects include the following:  staying grounded (connected to “female” Earth energy) and strengthening focus and self-discipline, creating strategies, expressing creativity in practical ways, increasing abundance and bringing a state of balance to relationships.

Reflect upon all of these areas and identify those which you need to strengthen and then take clear steps to do so.  The relationship theme is quite dominant, specifically the area of nurturing and being nurtured.  Is there a state of balance in your relationships?  Do you give more than you receive, or vice versa?  Do you nurture those around you while still making sure that you are fulfilled?  The answers to these questions can assist you in creating balance in relationships of all types.

 

Tuesday July 19th is a high-energy day when we have the Full Moon in Capricorn.  Any Full Moon is the perfect time for reflecting upon “where you’re at” in different areas of life and then making changes where appropriate.  The “Earthy” quality of Capricorn makes this Full Moon an ideal time for being practical, to take a step back and reflect upon the state of the following areas of life:  self-discipline, personal responsibility, creating and following strategies in order to achieve goals and managing time wisely.

If you would like to actively use today’s energy, a Full Moon meditation is an effective way to do so.  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) 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.  Of course, you can also use any preferred method of sending Reiki.

In addition to the energetic themes mentioned above, there are additional “boosts” of energy in the area of creating a greater sense of balance in your committed relationships (a continuation of what we experienced yesterday), as well as in manifesting your goals.  If you do any work with the Law of Attraction, it’s a great day to do so.  If you’re a Reiki 2 (or above) practitioner, make sure to set aside time to work with your Reiki affirmations.

 

Wednesday July 20th we have some great energy flowing in the areas of creativity, relationships and finance, supporting us in creating greater stability.  If you haven’t already taken time this week to reflect upon these areas and what practical steps you can take to strengthen them, then it’s a great idea to do so today.  Today’s energy pushes us to be productive, so use the energy well!

 

Thursday July 21st the energy will be flowing strongly in the area of creativity and creative self-expression.  If you’ve been keeping your creativity to yourself or have been reluctant to delve into this area, today is a wonderful day to let go and let your creative side shine for all to see!

 

Friday July 22nd we have a day of bright, active energy.   It’s a day of enjoyment, creative thinking and open self-expression.  This element of speaking the truth is very freeing, so if you’ve been keeping things bottled up, it’s a great day to open up and let it flow!

 

Saturday July 23rd we can expect a day of gentle, flowing energy.  Take it easy today as much as possible and just “go with the flow”.  The energy will be much more active tomorrow, so you should think about saving the action for then.

 

Sunday July 24th is a day of strong, active energy.  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+4+7+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).  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.

Additionally, there is also plenty of energy supporting us in improving finances and relationships through making changes and taking different approaches.

 

Wishing all of you a positive and productive week ahead!

Many blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast, July 11th – 17th 2016

Hello Everyone,

This week we have plenty of strong energy to look forward to, with the highlight being a day of Master energy on Friday.  It is important to use this energy actively and stay grounded, otherwise it is likely you will find yourself feeling agitated, “all over the place” or short-tempered.  There are great opportunities for breakthroughs, strengthening relationships and problem-solving, but you need to work with the energy and take positive action in order to make the most of it.  So now let’s take a detailed look at what we can expect this week and how to best use the energy each day:

on the right track

Monday July 11th we start the week with a high-energy day that has good potential for transformation, change and healing, but you need to be ready to let go in order to make the most of this energy.  If you are resisting change, trying to change others instead of changing yourself and/or focusing more of your energy “outwards” so as to avoid looking within, you could find yourself feeling agitated or “all over the place” today.

Be flexible, open and ready to let go of old habits, relationships, ways of being and anything else that no longer “fits” with who you are becoming (or what you would like to become) or that no longer serves a purpose (providing a sense of positive energy, fulfilment, happiness, growth etc.) in order to move forward and transform yourself and your life.  The intuition will be especially strong today, so pay attention to your “gut instinct” and allow it to guide you.

It’s also a great day to take time to reflect upon the flow of energy and abundance in to your life, how you affect it and how you can increase it.  Inspired thinking is also strongly aspected today, so you may come up with some very creative ideas and solutions as to how you can increase abundance.

 

Tuesday July 12th is a high-energy day that should bring lots of light, bright beautiful energy!  Relationships are strengthened through sharing activities and creative energy will be flowing strongly.   Make the most of this energy by expressing your creative side and empower romantic relationships by actively putting positive, loving energy into them.

 

Wednesday July13th the energy will be very supportive in the areas of self-expression, communication and creative writing.  If you’ve been waiting for the right opportunity to share your vision or ideas with others, today is a good time to open up and go for it!

 

Thursday July 14th the intuition will be especially strong and the energy will be very active, so it’s a great day to keep busy.  Ideally, do something constructive such as exercise, taking action in a cause that’s important to you or taking the initiative in projects and acting as a leader.  Try starting the day with meditation (even just a few minutes!) so that you are better able to receive intuitive “flashes” and guidance today.  One word of caution:  the active energy today can cause some to be agitated or short-tempered if the energy isn’t balanced or being used well.  Avoid this by taking action and being conscious of expressing this activity in a positive way.  Also, in taking action today, don’t rush things or make any rash decisions.

 

Friday July 15th is a day of strong, active energy.  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+5+7+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).  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.

 

Saturday July 16th the energy will be flowing strongly in the area of relationships:  romantic partnerships, close friends and family.  You can use the energy well by strengthening relationships through taking part in activities together and by taking time to enjoy each other’s company.  If any issues need to be addressed, make sure to do so by expressing yourself compassionately and by listening, then work together constructively in order to move forward in the best possible way.

 

Sunday July 17th we finish the week with a day of bright, flowing energy.  It’s not a day for rushing around and trying to get a lot done.  Rather, allow yourself to relax, recharge and enjoy the day.

 

Wishing everyone a wonderfully positive week!

Many blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast, July 4th – 10th 2016

Hello Everyone,

It’s a week of strong energy coming up this week, with the highlights being the New Moon in Cancer on Monday and then a Master Energy day on Wednesday.  Some of this intense energy will be very “active”, while on other days the energy will be much more focused on the inner-self and the processes of healing and transformation.  It’s important to stay grounded, focused and aware of how you are using the energy this week in order to make the most of it and avoid feeling frustrated, agitated or “all over the place”.  There is great potential this week, so let’s take a detailed look at what we can do to maximise this:

Cancer New Moon

Cancer New Moon

Monday July 4th we get a great start to the week with a very high-energy and the New Moon in Cancer.  Any New Moon is a great time for fresh starts and new beginnings, but the influence of Cancer (and it’s “emotional” water element) places extra emphasis on the areas of family, loved ones, security, nurturing (both for the self and others) and care.  What changes or adjustments can you make in order to strengthen or create more harmony in these areas?

There is also a strong aspect of healing today, especially in working with issues related to self-expression and communication.  Reflect upon any issues that you may have in these areas, the root causes and what you can actively do to resolve these.  It could be that there are very old issues which have caused an energy “blockage” that needs to be cleared, or it may be that you need to reassess certain relationships and let of the ones in which you feel you are unable to express your true self.  If you are a Reiki (or other energy) practitioner, take time to apply extra energy to the throat and heart areas.  As everyone has “chi” in the palms, the following exercise can be practised by anyone is very useful in clearing negative/stagnant energy from any part of the body:

 

Sitting quietly and comfortably, place the hands over the area to wish to heal/clear, working with one area of the body at a time.  Inhale deeply and evenly through the nose, imagining this in-breath as a brilliant, white light that enters your body and fills the area that you are covering with the hands.  As you exhale through the mouth, imagine this out-breath as a dark-grey fog:  this is the negative/stagnant energy that you are releasing.  Continue this process until you see, imagine or intend that the grey fog is getting lighter and lighter in colour…until you are both inhaling and exhaling the brilliant, white light.

 

You can also make the most of this New Moon energy 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 (ideally outdoors, if weather permits) and send Reiki to the Moon by distance. Sit quietly and comfortably and choose whichever method of sending Reiki you prefer.  This will allow you to establish a “link” with the energy and is very interesting to experience, to say the least!

 

Tuesday July 5th is a high-energy day that’s all about personal transformation, spiritual practises and healing, plus lots of energy supporting the areas of inspired thinking, creative expression and increasing the flow of abundance.  The intuition is especially strong today, so allow it to guide you in thinking “out of the box” and taking inspired actions in these areas.  It’s a great idea to continue with any healing work that you may have started yesterday, as well as taking time to meditate (even just for a few minutes!) so that you are better able to receive guidance and intuitive flashes.

 

Wednesday July 6th is a day of strong, active energy.  According to numerology this day has special energetic significance because the numbers of today’s date add up to the “Master Number” of 22 (6+7+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).  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.

Additionally, there is a significant boost in the areas of creativity, self-expression and communication.  Healing old wounds from past relationships (family, friends, romantic etc.) is also well-supported.

 

Thursday July 7th is a high-energy day that has the potential to be quite challenging, depending on whether or not you are open to transformation, change and healing.  If you are resisting change, trying to change others instead of changing yourself and/or focusing more of your energy “outwards” so as to avoid looking within, you could find yourself feeling agitated or “all over the place” as certain (sometimes very uncomfortable!) truths are about the “self” are pushed to the surface today.

The way to make the most of the energy today is to be flexible, open and ready to let go of old habits, relationships, ways of being and anything else that no longer “fits” with who you are becoming (or what you would like to become) or that no longer serves a purpose (providing a sense of positive energy, fulfilment, happiness, growth etc.) in order to move forward and transform yourself and your life.  Of course, it can be a huge challenge to change (which is why so many people don’t even bother) and let go of what is familiar.  This is not an easy process, but by embracing it and overcoming any challenges or fears, we can experience freedom, lightness and fulfilment in life.

It’s also a great day to take time to reflect upon the flow of energy and abundance in to your life and how you affect it.  Do you have self-limiting beliefs?  Do you have clear goals that you remind yourself of regularly?  Do you raise your energetic vibration by both giving and receiving love openly and unconditionally?  By being aware of how we use our energy and how important it is to have our outer and inner selves in alignment, we can become more focused and greatly increase the flow of abundance.

 

Friday July 8th is a high-energy day with the focus on healing, transformation, creative expression and communication. You should continue to take action in any of these areas that you may be working on, as the energy is very supportive today in making great progress in them.   There are also good opportunities for increasing the flow of abundance and prosperity, especially when connecting with others.

 

Saturday July 9th is a high-energy day with themes very similar to what we experienced on Thursday.  So, there are potential difficulties if one is unwilling to be flexible and open to change, but also potential opportunities if one is ready to let go of the “old” in order to transform.  For specific information on how to use the energy today, please scroll up to read Thursday’s forecast.

 

Sunday July 10th we finish the week with a day of bright, lively energy.  It’s a great day to experience activities outdoors (weather permitting), socialising or just keeping busy doing activities that you enjoy.  After all of the intense energy this week, today is a day to just let go and have fun!

 

Wishing all of you a positive week of action and change.

Many blessings,

Chantal
