We experience the final week of a powerful, 3-week cycle of growth, transformation and progress that concludes on March 6th. As I’ve written in the past two weeks forecasts, this has the potential to be one of the most powerful energy cycles of the entire year, but it is essential to have clear goals (in whatever areas of life you are working on: career, relationships, healing, growth etc.) and to stay grounded throughout this time. I recommend practising a “grounding” or “earthing” exercise daily. For suggested practises, please read my article on Grounding: http://www.healingfire.com/tips-for-grounding/ or you can also try my free, guided meditation: https://soundcloud.com/chantal-phillips/guided-meditation-grounding?in=chantal-phillips/sets/guided-meditations For Reiki practitioners, remember to take extra time to apply Reiki to your First/Root chakra, legs and feet every day. In addition to this energy, we have two significant days this week: a “Master Energy” day on Tuesday and Venus turning retrograde on Saturday.
Here is extra information about this special 3-week energy cycle: During this time, the intuition is strengthened and there are great opportunities for taking action, making progress in projects and goals, expressing your creative side, increasing the flow of abundance and prosperity into your life and injecting new passion into relationships. Listen to your intuition and allow it to guide you in these areas.
This strong energy will help you to maintain your focus on projects and goals (in all areas of life) with a sense of enthusiasm and self-discipline… but it is very important to have clear goals in place in order to do so.
It’s also a good idea to set aside time to visualise your goals for abundance and prosperity in order to make the most of the energy. It may be that you do work with the Law of Attraction or other visualisation techniques, and for Reiki 2 practitioners it’s an excellent time to work on your Reiki affirmations. Whatever your preferred method, sit quietly and visualise each of your goals in their completed forms. Work on them one by one, using as many of your senses as possible. Truly feel and intend that each goal is now completed.
Another important theme for today and over the next three weeks is transformation, taking action and making changes towards what you would like to see in your life this year and beyond. Reflect upon what area(s) of life you would like to transform and then write down ideas and strategies for creating this transformation. The energy today is very effective in empowering this process!
One word of caution: although it’s a good time to take action on your intuitive “flashes”, it is not a good time for taking risks. You should also be very conscious of staying “grounded” and aware throughout this time, otherwise you run the risk of feeling agitated or overloaded from the energy, and even accident-prone.
So now let’s take a detailed look at what can expect this week:
Monday February 27th we begin the week with a high-energy day focused on communication, especially speaking up for yourself and voicing your truth. There is also an emphasis on compassionate action and supporting whatever worthy cause you feel strongly about (be it political, social etc.).
Tuesday February 28th 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+8+2+2+0+1+7= 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.
Wednesday March 1st we begin the new month with strong energy and an emphasis on creativity and creative self-expression, as well as thinking “outside the box”. With all of this potential for inspiration and productivity, don’t waste this special energy by doing nothing… otherwise you may find yourself wasting your time “thinking in circles” and achieving nothing, or even a state of self-delusion or daydreaming. Stay grounded and you can make the best of the energy today.
Thursday March 2nd is a day to “expect the unexpected”. It could be an unexpected opportunity or meeting, or a chain of events being triggered. This can be positive or negative, depending upon your motivations. If you are motivated by self-serving interests, gaining more power or getting others to do what you want, things are likely to take a bad turn very quickly. The best way to approach events today is to allow them to unfold, without pushing or rushing things. Be clear about your motivations, listen to your intuition (or “gut instinct”) and be receptive.
Friday March 3rd the best way to approach today is to “go with the flow” as much as possible. There is still good potential for productivity, but continue working on current projects rather than starting new ones.
Saturday March 4th the energy will be strong as today we experience Venus turning retrograde until April 15th. During a time of Venus retrograde, we can expect to re-evaluate our values and ideals in life. It’s a good time to gain a deeper understanding of yourself and how you relate to those around you, as well as reflecting upon the theme of “self love”. Remember that when we love and care for ourselves, we attract healthy relationships (of all types) into our lives.
As a general rule, one is advised to avoid starting a new relationship, getting married or making large purchases during Venus retrograde. However, this particular retrograde is different than usual: there are good opportunities for love and relationships, as well as finances, but the key word is CAUTION! In relationships, decisions based on lust will likely end in sorrow and regret, so move carefully and slowly. In finances, quick gains will most likely result in quick losses, so make any financial decisions carefully in order to make the most of the energy.
Sunday March 5th is a day for relaxing and taking time to “recharge your batteries” after such an active week. The powerful 3-week cycle of energy finishes tomorrow, so it’s also a good idea to set aside time today to look back over the past three weeks and reflect upon how you have used the energy, what changes or shifts happened, the strategies that you have created and been taking action upon (or not!) etc. What lessons have you learned? What do you need to do in order to “keep the ball rolling”? By being aware of these things, you can continue to stay focused on your path of growth.
Wishing all of you a productive, powerful and positive week ahead!
