Weekly Forecast Aug 29th – Sept 4th 2016

Hello Everyone,

I hope that all of you experienced days of productivity, healing, breakthroughs and change last week.  The energy was very intense, so although we have some powerful high-energy days coming up this week, it may be a relief to know that this energy can be much easier to deal with.  Even when faced with Mercury retrograde on Tuesday!  The super-charged New Moon in Virgo on Thursday offers a great opportunity for fresh starts and new beginnings, so stay grounded and positive and it should be a good week ahead!  So now let’s take a detailed look at what we can expect:

mercury retrograde

Monday August 29th we begin the week with a high-energy day and plenty of powerful energy flowing in the areas of creativity, self-expression, relationships, harmony and healing. Take time to reflect upon how you can use your talents and abilities to enrich the lives of those around you, how you can better express your creative side and also what needs to be healed and released so that you can move forward with positive energy and strength. Be aware that some old issues can be pushed to the surface today, so if you find yourself feeling anxious or agitated, look within yourself and find the root issues that are causing this so that they can be healed.

 

Tuesday August 30th is a day of strong energy when we experience Mercury turning retrograde until September 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.  This particular Mercury retrograde phase also brings good opportunities for productivity, so make the most of it!

 

Wednesday August 31st we finish the month with a day of bright, light, productive energy.  Creative expression is strongly supported, as are any activities for manifesting goals (Reiki 2 affirmations, Law of Attraction etc.).  Take 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.  Significant relationships, both friendships and love, also get a nice “boost” of energy today.

 

Thursday September 1st we begin a new month with a VERY high-energy day! We experience the New Moon in Virgo, “super-charged” with the energetic influence of a solar eclipse, which is said to provide a big boost of energy.  The annular solar eclipse will be visible from the southern tropical regions of Africa and Madagascar.  Regardless of whether or not the eclipse is visible from where you live, it’s said that the energetic effects will be experienced nonetheless.

Any New Moon is a great time for new beginnings and fresh starts.  Virgo is all about being organised, health, service to others and manifesting on the physical level (such as improving finances).  Remember that the solar eclipse will strongly empower all of these areas!  Today is a great day to set some intentions and take action:  create a healthy routine (exercise, diet etc.), organise any cluttered areas of your home/office and see where changes can be made in order to improve finances.  You can also connect with today’s 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 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 and use any of your Distant Healing techniques to send Reiki to it. In this way, you can tap directly into these lunar energies.

 

Friday September 2nd is a high-energy day when we will still be feeling the effects of yesterday’s extra-strong New Moon.  It’s a good idea to stay active and to continue to work on the areas that were highlighted yesterday.

 

Saturday September 3rd is a day of light, bright, active energy.  It’s a great day for socialising, working on enjoyable projects and spending time outdoors (which is also very grounding).  Wonderful energy for the weekend!

 

Sunday September 4th we finish the week with a day of strong, bright, positive 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 (4+9+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 stay active, so make the most of it!  If possible, take part in activities outdoors and enjoy the day with those you love.  It’s also a great day to work on manifesting your goals or Law of Attraction work, 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.

 

Wishing all of you a productive, positive week ahead.

Many blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast August 22nd – 28th 2016

Hello Everyone,
We experienced so much intense energy last week, so I hope that you were able to use it for growth and positive change. If you’ve finished the week feeling motivate and inspired, you’re definitely on the right track and are riding this wave of energy like a pro! There were many experienced a lot of release last week as unreleased emotional wounds pushed their way to the surface. This cleansing and healing releases old energy, freeing us and allowing us to progress. However, for those who are refusing to let go, it has been a very challenging time indeed. This coming week is filled with high-energy days and the main themes are RELEASE, HEALING, CHANGING and MANIFESTING GOALS, so the challenges will continue unless the energy is used consciously.

For some, there is a reluctance to acknowledge the past, to revisit any unpleasant emotions or experiences, to change… this state of denial or refusal to change can result in feelings of frustration, heaviness and negative self-expression, as well as a tendency to “numb” oneself through over-indulgence in drugs, alcohol or other “empty” activities. When the energy is very strong, as it has been recently, any problems or imbalances are highlighted. Rather than allowing yourself to stay in a state of stagnation and frustration, make the decision to revolutionize your life and take action! See that all of us can benefit from this powerful energy if we choose to do so.

Monday August 22nd we start the week with a high-energy day with plenty of powerful energy flowing in the areas of creativity, self-expression, service to others and healing. Set aside time to reflect upon how you can use your talents and abilities to enrich the lives of those around you, how you can better express your creative side and also what needs to be healed and released so that you can move forward with positivity and strength. Be aware that some old issues can be pushed to the surface today, so if you find yourself feeling anxious or agitated, it’s time to face the issues within that are causing this so that they can be healed. I recommend taking time for spiritual/energy practices and/or having a full healing session (either self-treatment or receiving a treatment from a practitioner) in order to heal and release old issues as well as to strengthen one’s grounding.
Tuesday August 23rd is a 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+3+8+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 or Law of Attraction work, 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 big boost of energy in the areas of creative expression and meaningful communication with others.
Wednesday August 24th is a high-energy day with lots of support in the areas of manifesting goals and releasing that which no longer serves you. If you would like to work on manifesting goals, you can use the information included for yesterday’s Master 22 vibration energy. With regards to releasing, this includes habits, old patterns and attitudes and fears which may be holding you back. There is also great potential for breakthroughs in the area of healing, so try to take time for a healing session as much can be healed and released today, especially old issues.
Thursday August 25th we have our fourth high-energy day in a row. The energy today is a continuation of what we experienced yesterday, so the focus is on manifesting goals, healing and releasing that which no longer serves you. The energy today will quite active, so there is good potential for productivity. Remember that if the energy isn’t being used in a positive way, it can cause feelings of frustration, agitation etc., so be conscious about using the energy to assist you in whatever you are trying to accomplish today.
Friday August 26th is a high-energy day that has the potential to be quite challenging, particularly for those who are resisting change, living in a state of denial, refusing to acknowledge that which needs to be healed/released and those who are not grounded. Today it is more likely that one’s “buttons” can be pushed and feelings of agitation and frustration can cause outbursts. This is a result of old, unresolved or unreleased issues/hurts being pushed to the surface. The sooner these are acknowledged, healed and released the better.
Saturday August 27th is a high-energy day with good potential for manifesting goals and releasing that which no longer serves you. If you would like to work on manifesting goals, 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, make sure to work on your Reiki affirmations. With regards to releasing, this includes habits, old patterns and attitudes and fears which may be holding you back. There is also great potential for breakthroughs in the area of healing, so try to take time for a healing session as much can be healed and released today, especially old issues.
Sunday August 28th we finish the week with a high-energy day that is similar to what we experienced on Monday. I will repeat the information here: lots of powerful energy flowing in the areas of creativity, self-expression, service to others and healing. Take time to reflect upon how you can use your talents and abilities to enrich the lives of those around you, how you can better express your creative side and also what needs to be healed and released so that you can move forward in your life with positive energy and strength. Be aware that some old issues can be pushed to the surface today, so if you find yourself feeling anxious or agitated, it’s time to face the issues within yourself that are causing this so that they can be healed.
Wishing all of you a week of progress, healing and growth.
Many blessings,

Weekly Forecast, August 1st – 7th 2016

Hello Everyone,

I hope that all of you made the most of the gentler energy last week to rest and re-charge, because this week we have lots of strong and active energy!  The highlights include the New Moon in Leo on Tuesday and a Master Energy day on Friday.   As the energy will be so strong, it is very important to stay grounded in order to make the most of it otherwise you may find yourself feeling agitated, restless or “all over the place”.  Leo is ruled by the element of fire, which is all about taking action, being bold and taking the lead.  So while you can use this energy in wonderful ways, make sure you don’t “burn out” or “burn” those around you by misusing the energy.  So now let’s take a detailed look at what we can expect this week:

Leo New Moon2

Monday August 1st we begin the week and month with a high-energy day that is all about 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.  The themes we experience today will carry on throughout the week, especially on Thursday and Saturday.

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.

Today we also have lots of energy supporting us in taking accomplishing tasks and taking the lead.

 

Tuesday August 2nd is a high-energy day when we experience the New Moon in Leo.  Any New Moon is an ideal time for new beginnings, fresh starts and taking action, but the influence of Leo places extra emphasis on taking action, leadership roles and enjoying life!  This New Moon also provides a big boost of energy in the area of manifesting your goals, working with the Law of Attraction, Reiki affirmations etc.  To make the most of this, make sure you take 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.

A New Moon meditation is also a good way to connect with today’s energy.  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 use your favourite distant healing technique to send Reiki to the Moon. Sit quietly and comfortably, prepare your hands for sending Reiki and then proceed with whichever technique you prefer.  In this way, you can tap directly into these lunar energies.

 

Wednesday August 3rd it’s time to be aware of how you are using the strong energy that we are currently experiencing this week.   If you find that you’ve been wasting the energy by over-indulging or avoiding tasks and responsibilities, it’s time to focus more on spiritual practises as well as channelling the energy into creative projects and creative self-expression.

 

Thursday August 4th is a day of powerful “Yin” (feminine) energy, much like what we experienced on Monday.  Please refer to the Monday forecast above for information on what we can expect today and how to best use this energy.

 

Friday August 5th 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 (5+8+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, relationships and boosting creative projects.

 

Saturday August 6th is a high-energy day when we experience powerful Yin (feminine) energy, much like what we’ve already experienced this week on Monday and Thursday.  Please refer to the information included in Monday’s forecast for details of what we can expect today and how to best use the energy.  In addition to this, there is a big boost of energy supporting us in expressing ourselves openly and honestly and standing up for what we believe in.  Furthermore, today we are also supported in thinking of ways in which we can help others, ways which bring us happiness and a sense of fulfilment.

 

Sunday August 7th we finish the week with a high-energy day.  Today the intuition will be especially strong, so pay attention to your “gut instinct” and try starting the day with meditation (even just a few minutes!) so that you’re better able to receive guidance and inspiration throughout the day.  In addition, we will also experience some of the themes that we had on Tuesday:  taking action, leadership roles and enjoying life, plus a big boost of energy in the area of manifesting your goals, working with the Law of Attraction, Reiki affirmations etc.

 

Wishing all of you a powerful and productive week ahead.

Many blessings,

Chantal
