Weekly Forecast, Jan 30th – Feb 5th 2017

Hello Everyone,

This week we have a nice mix of high-energy and “gentle” energy days. There is good potential for change, but it is important to be open and flexible in order to do so. The intuition will be especially strong during the first part of the week, so open yourself to being inspired! If you’ve been working on plans, the energy towards the end of the week is very supportive in putting plans into action. With that said, let’s take a detailed look at what we can expect this week:

Monday January 30th we start the week with a day of gentle, flowing energy… a nice change of pace after a couple of days of very strong and active energy! Rather than trying to accomplish many tasks or start new projects, it’s a good idea to allow yourself the time to slow down and enjoy the day.


Tuesday January 31st we finish the month with a high-energy day that is focused on transformation and creating big changes, especially in the way that you think and communicate. It could be that you receive flashes of intuition that prompt you to think differently, or perhaps being challenged in your way of thinking/communicating through encountering new situations or information. Try to take time to reflect upon how open or flexible you are with your mindset, and how you can strengthen these qualities (this is something that can be worked on throughout this week). In addition to this, today there is also good potential to transform relationships through healing any issues. In fact, healing in general is well-supported today, so take time for a full self-healing (Reiki or other energy healing) or receive a treatment from a practitioner, as much can be healed/released today.


Wednesday February 1st the energy won’t be as strong as yesterday, but the focus is the same: working on changing how you think and communicate and being open to change and flexibility. The intuition is also strong today, so pay attention to those flashes of inspiration!


Thursday February 2nd we have a day of “low-key” energy. It’s a day to work on current projects and to focus your energy carefully, rather than trying to accomplish many tasks or start new projects.


Friday February 3rd is a high-energy day with the emphasis on the area of relationships, especially long-term partnerships. It’s a great time to put fresh energy into romance and to try new activities together. Regarding relationships in general, take time to reflect upon how balanced they are: is there an equal exchange of energy? Do you find exchanges with certain people to be draining or energising? It’s time to bring a state of balance by seeing how you can strengthen positive relationships and also where you need to set boundaries with people who are draining.


Saturday February 4th is a day of strong and active energy. If you’ve been making plans and strategies this week, today is a good one on which to make a start with these. It’s also a good day to take action regarding any insights that or exciting new ideas that may have come to you over the past week. As the energy is very active today and supportive in accomplishing tasks, make the most of this energy otherwise you may find yourself feeling agitated.


Sunday February 5th we finish the week with a day of gentle, flowing energy. We will experience some strong energy tomorrow as Jupiter turns “direct”, so make the most of today by relaxing, recharging and preparing for an exciting week ahead!


Wishing all of you a wonderful week!

Many blessings,


Weekly Forecast, Jan. 16th – 22nd 2017

Hello Everyone,

We have an interesting week ahead, but definitely less intense than what we had last week. There are great opportunities for healing and growth, as well as days for rest, recharging and reflection. However, the big highlight of the week occurs on Thursday when we begin a powerful energy cycle that lasts until the end of April. This period is a time of revolutionary transformation, and I include in my forecast advice for what we can do to make the most of it. So let’s take a detailed look at what we can expect this week:


Monday January 16th we start the week with a powerful flow of energy supporting the area of healing, especially old/unresolved issues. Spiritual practises and creative expression also get a boost. I strongly recommend taking time for an energy-healing session, either a self-treatment or receiving a treatment from a practitioner, as there is great potential today for much healing! My personal preference is Reiki, but there are many healing methods out there, so just go with the one that you feel most drawn to. You can also try the following self-healing technique that I have adapted from an Advanced Reiki Training method, so anyone can practise it:


  1. Sit quietly and comfortably, breathing deeply and evenly as you prepare to contemplate each old or unresolved issue. You may want to work on one issue per “session” or multiple ones.
  2. As you contemplate the issue, pay attention to any part(s) of the body that comes to mind.
  3. Bring your attention to this area and imagine it filled with a dark fog (you may see a colour clearly, so work with that. Otherwise, imagine a dark grey fog). This “fog” is representative of the negative or stagnant energy resulting from the unresolved issue.
  4. Now breathe in deeply and imagine a brilliant white mist entering your body through the top of your head and travelling to the part of the body that is filled with the grey fog.
  5. As you exhale, imagine the grey fog leaving your body (you may choose to imagine breathing this out through the mouth, or intending/visualising that the grey fog is being released directly from the affected area.
  6. Continue breathing in the white mist and breathing out the dark fog until you can no longer perceive/feel/imagine it (which indicates a clearing of the area).
  7. Spend at least a few minutes filling the entire area with brilliant, white, light mist.
  8. Acknowledge the lessons learned from the issue and give thanks.

During this exercise, I recommend placing the hands over the area that you are working on. Everyone has “chi” flowing from the hands, so this assists the healing process. If you are a Reiki (or other energy healing) practitioner, you will find that the energy flowing from the hands greatly assists this exercise.



Tuesday January 17th is a day of gentle, flowing energy. Rather than trying to accomplish many tasks, try focusing your energy on just a couple of things. It isn’t a day for starting new projects, but one for continuing work on existing ones.



Wednesday January 18th is a high-energy day with great potential for entrepreneurial activities and new projects, as long as one is willing to be flexible and make necessary adjustments. There is also good potential for being inspired mentally, so if you are working on any strategies, creative ideas, plans or other mental pursuits, there can be some great breakthroughs today!



Thursday January 19th is a VERY high-energy day that marks a cycle of energy, one of the most powerful of the entire year, that will continue until the end of April. The main theme of this cycle is that of “revolutionary transformation”, a time of letting go of anything that no longer serves your higher purpose and goals (old ways of thinking, outmoded methods, old habits etc.). It’s a time of perfecting your skills and being passionate about what you do, so that you move forward towards your goals successfully and can also share your knowledge and skills with others.


During this energetic cycle, there is great potential to improve ALL areas of your life: career, relationships, physical health, spiritual progression etc. But the key to getting the most out of the energy is using it with awareness! Yes, there can be some challenging moments ahead, but by consciously using the energy you can focus, tap into your self-discipline and overcome these. If you haven’t already created some strategies for this year, make some now so that you can stay focused on your path. By doing so, you will be able to reap the rewards!



Friday January 20th is a high-energy day when we will still be feeling the effects of yesterday’s very powerful energy. In addition to this, there is lots of energetic support in the areas of creative expression, spiritual practises and making positive changes in relationships. It’s also a good day to work on increasing the flow of abundance into your life, so set aside some time to sit quietly and visualise each of your abundance 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 January 21st we have the first day of a weekend of relaxed, flowing energy. We have some strong energy coming up next week, so give yourself the time to relax, rest and recharge. If you do feel that you would like to be active over the weekend, make sure that it’s doing enjoyable activities!



Sunday January 22nd we finish the week with our second day of relaxed, flowing energy. As with yesterday, enjoy the day and allow yourself to relax and recharge.



Wishing all of you a wonderful week ahead!

Many blessings,


Weekly Forecast, Jan. 9th – 15th 2017

Hello Everyone,
We have a week of very strong energy coming up, with lots of great potential for working on projects, building foundations, working on the self, and much more! In order to make the most of this energy, it is very important that you have clear goals and strategies. You should also take time for “grounding” exercises daily, otherwise you may find yourself feeling agitated or “all over the place”. Although the energy this week is very strong (we have an incredibly powerful Full Moon on Thursday!), use it in a “steady” way. No rushed decisions, or “spur of the moment” actions. Use this energy to work on yourself, make changes and adjustments, build for your future and release what no longer serves you. So now let’s take a detailed look at what we can expect:

Full Moon in Cancer

Monday January 9th we start the week with a VERY high-energy day that is all about creating opportunities and changes, especially through strategies that have been created since the Winter Solstice. It’s also a good idea to reflect upon what changes or adjustments you can make in order to strengthen/increase healing in your life. There is also a push to work on your individual skills so that you are able to use them in assisting others joyfully.
There is a strong aspect of starting or finding ventures that fit specifically with your unique vision. The intuition is especially strong today, so pay attention to any “signs”, listen to your “gut instinct” and be prepared to receive flashes of inspiration that can guide you in your ventures. Projects started today (as well as within the next 10 days or so) are well-aspected, although you need to be prepared for any potential emotional challenges along the way. Ground yourself, tap into the energy of self-discipline and stay focused in order to reap the greatest rewards from this energy.
Remember that when you are working to bring about significant changes, it is important to let go of that which no longer serves you (old ways of thinking, doing etc.). Furthermore, as the intuition is strong today, I recommend starting the day with meditation (even just a few minutes!) so that you are more receptive and better able to receive intuitive guidance throughout the day. Open yourself to magical possibilities!
Tuesday January 10th is a high-energy day that continues the energy and themes that we experienced yesterday. Additionally, take time to reflect upon any area(s) of life that is “stuck” or stagnant… if something isn’t working, you are being shown exactly where you need to make some big changes (even radical ones!). You’ll find that when your actions are aligned with your true purpose, things flow much more smoothly. It’s also a good idea to work on building stronger foundations for your current/planned projects.
Wednesday January 11th is a high-energy day when we continue the themes of Monday and Tuesday, but we get an added boost of energy today in the areas of spiritual practises , healing and working for a worthy cause. Romantic partnerships also get lots of support today, with lots of harmony in the air! Just one bit of advice: with all of the activity this week, make sure that you aren’t starting too many new projects or committing to too many things. Manage your energy well!
Thursday January 12th is a VERY high-energy day when we experience the Full Moon in Cancer. This Full Moon is considered to be one of the most powerful lunar events of the year due to its coinciding with particular planetary alignments that we are experiencing at the moment (please refer to the influences that I wrote about in Monday’s forecast). Any Full Moon is a good time for “taking stock” and reflecting upon how your life has been flowing since the last Full Moon. However, the influence of Cancer places special emphasis on the areas of healing, nurturing, family, home and the deep unconscious. What changes or adjustments need to be made in these areas? What needs to be released in order to create more harmony?
To more fully connect with the energy today, you can practise a Full Moon 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 way:
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 (this is both fun and wonderful). Of course, feel free to use any method of distant Reiki that you may prefer.
The planetary influences today bring an energy of transformation, strong intuition, finding new ventures that fit your unique gifts and talents, healing and releasing old issues and opening yourself to change. Some advice: before making any major decisions regarding finances or relationships, make sure that you ground yourself and see through any illusions. Don’t see these situations through “rose coloured glasses”! It can be helpful to seek the advice of others so that you can gain a different perspective.
Friday January 13th is a VERY high-energy day when we experience a continuation of the energy of change, empowerment and transformation that we had yesterday. Continue your work on projects, working on yourself, healing and working on strategies and foundations!
Saturday January 14th is a high-energy day, and the sixth in a row of days focused on change, empowerment and transformation. If you’ve been putting a lot of your energy into external projects this week, try to make today one in which you focus more on working on your inner-self.
Sunday January 15th we finish the week with a day of gentle, flowing energy. After an entire week of high-energy days, make today all about recharging, relaxing and enjoying yourself! Give yourself permission to take it easy and the make the most of just “being”.
Wow, we have quite a powerful week ahead! Remember to pace yourself, use your energy consciously, stay grounded and don’t try to do too much at one time. Take time for daily energy practises (Reiki, qi-gong, yoga, tai chi etc.). In this way, you can really make the best of this week.
Wishing all of you a fantastic week ahead!
Many blessings,

Weekly Forecast, January 2nd – 8th 2017

Hello Everyone,

This week we have a rather gentle start to the New Year. Rather than a week packed with high-energy days (as we have been experiencing recently), we have a week of steady, supportive energy. As this year is dominated by “Yin” (female) energy, this makes a lot of sense. The highlight this week is having Mercury turn “direct” after being retrograde for the past 3 weeks, so communication becomes a lot smoother and it’s time to put plans and strategies into action. So now let’s take a detailed look at what we can expect this week:

Monday January 2nd we begin the week with a day of gentle, flowing energy. Rather than doing lots of activities or trying to accomplish tasks, it’s a better idea to just take it easy and “go with the flow” as much as possible today.

Tuesday January 3rd we will experience an abundant amount of energy supporting creative endeavours, harmonious communication and inspiration. There is also a good flow of energy in the are of manifesting abundance, so take time to work on any Reiki affirmations (Reiki 2 level or above) or other techniques for manifesting abundance in your life. Sitting quietly, visualise your abundance goals in their completed forms using as many of your senses as possible. Truly intend that each goal is now completed. If you are working on Reiki affirmations, you would hold the paper with the written affirmation in your hand and apply Reiki throughout this exercise.

Wednesday January 4th we have another day of enhanced communication (which really helps during this period of Mercury retrograde!). Ideas, writing and spoken communication are empowered. There is also a spiritual aspect to today’s energy, in that deep contemplation and meditation can help us make discoveries about the inner-self.

Thursday January 5th the energy is all about relationships: romantic, business and friendships. Today provides an opportunity to take these to the next level and to bring more harmony to them. Have you been receiving intuitive flashes or moments of inspiration that are showing you the way in improving relationships? If so, it’s time to start implementing these. Or perhaps you can take time today to reflect on how you can do this, bearing in mind that you may need to take an unconventional approach!

Friday January 6th we experience a strong flow of energy continuing to support relationships (as we had yesterday). In addition, there is also great support for creative expression as well as improving or increasing one’s finances. Try to start the day with meditation (even just a few minutes!), as there is great potential to receive insights relating to today’s themes but you need to be receptive in order to do so.

Saturday January 7th is a high-energy day that is all about relationships, healing and transformation. Regarding relationships, it’s a day to work on areas that need improvement and/or healing. Reflect upon any “triggers” that you and your partner may have, then work on healing the root causes of these (ideally, you and your partner should work together on this). Focus on communicating with each other in a harmonious way, from the heart. If you are single, you can still benefit from this by reflecting on any “trigger” patterns that you may have in relationships, identifying the root cause and then actively working on healing/releasing them. Today there is wonderful for working on your process of transformation through releasing what no longer serves you (habits, patterns, ways of thinking etc.).

Sunday January 8th we finish the week with Mercury turning “direct” after being retrograde since December 19th. It’s time to move forward with any new ventures that you may have put on hold during the retrograde period (including contract signings and major purchases). As for any insights you may have gained over the past three weeks related to efficiency, responsibilities and good time management… it’s time to put these into action, too!


Wishing all of you a great week and a fantastic start to 2017!

Many blessings,


Yearly Forecast: 2017

Hello Everyone,

This Forecast for 2017 is based on Numerology, Chinese Astrology and Western Astrology. As you read on, it is interesting to note the common themes amongst these three types.

The energy of 2017 is “Yin”, or feminine (as opposed to last year’s Yang energy). This makes for a more harmonious year, with far fewer “dramas”. During a Yin year, it is best not to rush into anything. Instead, carefully consider choices before taking action. Although there are a lot of opportunities for growth in all areas of life, do not push too hard or force any issues. The growth we will experience will happen steadily, so it will also be a year for some to develop patience.
According to numerology, the year 2017 vibrates to the number “1” (2+0+1+7= 10, 1+0= 1). A “1” year represents the beginning of a new cycle, a time to “plant the seeds” of growth and set goals and intentions that will influence your life over the next 9 years. This affects every area of life: relationships, career, health, spiritual progression, finances, lifestyle etc., so I strongly recommend taking the time to carefully reflect upon each of these areas (and more!) and creating clear visions/intentions on where you would like to see yourself throughout this next 9-year cycle, changes you would like to make, dreams and goals that you want to make a reality etc., and then create a clear strategy for achieving these. Remember that the foundations you build and intentions you make in 2017 will strongly affect the next 9 years of of your life!

On the positive side, during a year with a “1” vibration we can expect to experience the following:

  • A powerful year to start new projects.
  • Progress (“1” is the most powerful number for this).
  • Great potential for spiritual advancement and transformation.
  • Breakthroughs.
  • Shifts in old, outmoded ways of being on a personal, global, political and economic scale.
  • Action.
  • Great potential for success in all areas where there are goals and a focus of energy.

On the negative side, if a person is not balanced, refuses to recognise or learn lessons (especially ones that arose in 2016) and has no interest in changing themselves, they will face many challenges this year and even over the next 9-year cycle! Those who resist change and cling stubbornly to old ways of thinking and doing will encounter continuous obstacles and disharmony. If you find that you are being “blocked” in any area of your life, it’s time to take a step back and reflect upon how YOU need to change in order to restore harmony. On a global scale, expect to see established institutions and ways of doing things fall apart. These changes are for the better and allow the chance to start again and build something much more positive, but for those who resist change, these events will throw their lives into chaos.

For those who have trapped themselves in negative patterns, these will be amplified (just as those who are living in a positive way will find that these areas are greatly empowered). For example, selfish people will behave even more selfishly, aggressive people will be even worse, so be aware of this in yourself and others. If there are any “toxic” people in your life, it’s time to create some distance. Remember, we can be compassionate and offer love and assistance to others, but if a person doesn’t want to change they just become very draining and hurtful.

The key to success this year (in whatever areas you are working on) is staying focused, determined and organised. Be aware that there is big potential for problems in the things/areas of life that are overlooked or neglected. In order to avoid this, keep careful financial records and receipts, be sure to nurture relationships and express appreciation to others, and KEEP YOUR EGO IN CHECK! A “1” vibration can tend towards selfishness and egocentricity, so get into the habit of taking a step back and seeing situations from the perspective of others. Regarding plans, ask yourself how others can also benefit. Keep yourself grounded and focused and remember the importance of regular meditation and grounding practises.


According to Chinese Astrology, this year we will be entering the Year of the Rooster on the day of the New Moon on January 28th. 2017 is the year of the Red Fire Rooster and it continues until February 15th, 2018. With the Fire element, if everything is in balance this energy is very empowering but if unbalanced, it can be destructive (burning yourself and others, getting “burned out” etc.). Imagine a controlled fire versus an out-of-control, raging one. So this year calls for a controlled, continuous use of energy. You will need to WORK STEADILY, keep your FOCUS on your goals and be PATIENT in order to reap the rewards of great success this year. This New Moon also starts the month of the Tiger (in Chinese astrology, each month is “ruled” by a different animal), which makes for a very strong and energetic beginning to the lunar new year.

In Chinese astrology, the Rooster has the positive characteristics of honesty, good communication, ambition, independence, quick-thinking and a generous spirit. No matter when you were born, it is worthwhile to examine these points within yourself and make changes or adjustments in order to strengthen them:

Work well with others but avoid depending on them too much
Be honest, live with integrity and avoid all “shady” dealings, no matter how tempting (obviously, this is good advice to follow all the time, but be especially aware of it this year)
Express yourself clearly and LISTEN to what others have to say
Have clear goals (whether big or small) that you can continuously work towards

As with all of the signs of the zodiac. The Rooster also has some negative characteristics, such as impatience, selfishness, being critical and also being enthusiastic about new projects/things but then becoming bored or impassive soon afterwards. So this year, if you find that you are encountering difficulties or blockages, try to do the following:

  • Examine whether or not your actions and goals benefit others as well as yourself
  • Focus your energy on achieving one or two goals at a time, rather than many. This is not the year to “multi-task”.
  • Practise being PATIENT
  • Finish what you begin! If you have difficulty with this, it’s time to ground your energy and focus it on where it is needed (instead of scattering it all over the place!)
  • Practise your listening skills! The Rooster year also has potential for big arguments and clashes of egos. Do your best to avoid these by listening to what others have to say, expressing yourself clearly (and without being harsh!) and recognising when the real issue is the ego, rather than the situation itself.
  • Practise gratitude daily

It is also said that this coming year is a good one for one’s career and financial investments, but timing is everything. Be patient and take action when the time is right, rather than rushing into anything or acting on sudden decisions. Remember that this year is about working steadily, working hard and building foundations. Nothing should be rushed!

All types of relationships are well-aspected for this Rooster year, especially because of the “Yin” (female) energy that supports these. This year, make more of an effort to spend time with family and friends. It’s also said to be an auspicious year for marriage, romantic relationships and pregnancy. Business relationships and partnerships have great potential for being fruitful, but don’t make things too complicated by over-thinking or over-analysing. Another aspect of relationships is the one which you have with yourself: this is a great year to take time for solitude, to look within, to heal and grow, to love and appreciate yourself in the same way that you love and appreciate others.

Although it is necessary to have a personalised, detailed astrological reading in order to have more precise advice, Feng Shui practitioners advise the following, general advice which can apply to everyone, regardless of astrological sign:

  • As the element for the Rooster year is Fire (which is symbolised by the colour Red), avoid wearing/using this colour in your clothes, accessories and surroundings. Instead, use colours that complement the element, such as Earth-coloured items (brown, yellow, gold)
  • White and green are said to be “unlucky” colours this year.
  • Purple and lavender are said to be “lucky” colours
  • Amethyst and topaz are good stones to wear/work with this year
  • Dragon is predicted to have the best year out of all the animals of the Chinese zodiac
  • Rooster, Snake and Ox are expected to have an excellent year
  • Rat and Tiger should have a good year
  • A mixed year for Sheep, Pig and Monkey
  • Rabbit, Horse and Dog are predicted to have a challenging year

However, whatever the prediction for your given animal of the Chinese zodiac, keeping a positive attitude and maintaining your focus are key in overcoming obstacles and achieving success this year.


According to Western Astrology, 2017 is a year of moving forward steadily (rather than the highs and lows that punctuated 2016). It should be an interesting year, with traditional beliefs being challenged like never before, breakthroughs in technology and politics, and an overall theme of overhauling the establishment. We have been experiencing so much change, we can only look forward as there is no turning back at this point. Issues can no longer be ignored and will need to be resolved, both on a personal and global scale, through change, transformation, action or even upheaval.

On a personal level, more energy needs to be put into making the world around us a better place. Take time to reflect upon how you can do this within your own life. There is good potential for everyone to experience a year of growth and self-discovery, as well as success within relationships and business, but (as already discussed in Chinese astrology and Numerology, above) it is essential to stay focused, have clear goals and work steadily.

In Western Astrology, each of the 12 signs is assigned to one of the four elements: Earth, Water, Fire and Air. Following are predictions for 2017 according to the elements:

Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn are ruled by the Earth element. In 2017, people born under these signs will experience a focus on work/career and finances. So as to maintain a balanced state, make sure that you remember to nurture your relationships and take regular time to rest and recharge.

Pisces, Cancer and Scorpio are ruled by the Water element. This year, those born under these signs will experience a focus on family matters, domestic issues, personal life and property. Expect some challenges and work in these areas, but the good news is that the positive results will be quite rewarding.

Aries, Leo and Sagittarius are ruled by the Fire element. In 2017, those born under these signs can expect to discover new opportunities! The main focus will be on responsibilities, career and the ability to increase earning potential. As long as one maintains balance, there should be improvements in all of these areas.

Aquarius, Gemini and Libra are ruled by the Air element. This year, those born under these signs are predicted to experience great “highs” in their love life. There will also be an emphasis on communication and realising that listening is just as important as talking. Remember that the key to progress this year is connecting with others, so work on establishing and strengthening connections.
To sum up all of these forecasts, we can see a common thread running through all of them: we can expect 2017 to be a year of steady progression, change, new beginnings and laying the foundations of future success. So create your goals now, be focused and patient and work steadily (on all areas of life). Remember the importance of maintaining balance and grounding so that you can tap into the true potential of the coming year. Take time to connect with the Earth, spend time in nature, exercise, meditate and practise your energy work… and see how wonderful you can make 2017!
Wishing all of you a fantastic year of growth, love, abundance, fulfilment and prosperity.

Many blessings and a very Happy 2017,
