Weekly Forecast Feb 27th – March 5th 2017

Hello Everyone,

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!

Many blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast Feb. 20th – 26th 2017

Hello Everyone,

We experience the second week of a powerful, 3-week cycle of growth, transformation and progress. As I wrote in last week’s forecast, 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. We also have an extra-powerful day this week: the Pisces New Moon combined with an annular eclipse on Sunday! Quite an eventful week ahead, so let’s take a detailed look at what to expect and what we can do to make the most of this special energy!

Monday February 20th we begin the week with a high-energy with the focus on taking action and continuing work with the current, powerful energy cycle. Keep in mind that if your energy isn’t grounded, or if you aren’t actively making the best possible use of the energy, there is potential for being short-tempered or argumentative. If you notice this in yourself, take time for a “grounding” practise… and remember to be more patient with others.

 

Tuesday February 21st is a high-energy day that supports taking action, thinking “outside the box” and putting more energy into working on a “higher cause”. This “higher cause” can be in whatever inspires you: social or political causes or justice, inspiring/mentoring/assisting others etc.

 

Wednesday February 22nd is a high-energy day that encourages action and continuing to work with the current, powerful energetic cycle, as well as taking on more of a leadership role. It’s also a good day to continue with working on a “higher cause”. A strong word of advice: today’s energy can be too intense for those who are not balanced or grounded, so avoid confrontations and arguments. Keep your distance from potentially angry or violent people and situations, as things have the potential to get really out of hand today. Remember to start the day with meditation (even just a few minutes) so that you can stay centred and grounded throughout the day.

 

Thursday February 23rd the energy is powerful today, but more “settled” than yesterday, so hopefully people will be in a better mood and not so likely to lose their tempers! Make good use of today’s energy by staying busy, taking action and continuing to work on yesterday’s themes.

 

Friday February 24th is a VERY high-energy day when we experience a “peak” in the powerful 3-week energy cycle. I will repeat the details of this cycle here: 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 throughout this 3-week cycle) 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.

 

Saturday February 25th is a high-energy day that continues with the dominant themes of this current 3-week energy cycle, with additional emphasis today on creativity, practical/strategic thinking and heightened intuition.

 

Sunday February 26th is a VERY high-energy day when we experience the New Moon in Pisces, super-charged by the annular solar eclipse! Although this eclipse will not be visible in Hong Kong (please check online for information about visibility, according to where you live), the energetic effects will be felt, nonetheless. Any New Moon is a great time for new beginnings and fresh starts, but the influence of Pisces places special emphasis on the areas of inspired creativity, spiritual awakening and working with your dreams (keeping a dream journal and working with any recurring or powerful themes/messages, lucid dreaming etc.). However, be aware that there can be a “shadow” side to this energy: escapism, lack of focus/direction, and playing the “victim”. By being conscious of these “traps” and focusing on using the abundant energy in a positive and powerful way, you can avoid these pitfalls.

The potent energy today is fantastic for many activities, including: strengthening committed relationships, healing old emotional wounds, creating strategies for future growth and direction, starting new projects and increasing the flow of abundance/prosperity in to your life through the use of techniques such as the Law of Attraction and Reiki Affirmations. The intuition is especially strong, so allow it to guide you in working on any of the areas mentioned.

A great way to actively work with New Moon energy is by doing a special meditation. You can do your own meditation 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 and use any of your distance Reiki techniques to “send” Reiki to the Moon. In this way, you can tap directly into these lunar energies (this is both fun and wonderful).

 

Wishing all of you a productive, powerful and positive week ahead!

Many blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast, Feb. 13th – 19th 2017

Hello Everyone,

We have a very exciting week to look forward to as we begin a powerful, 3-week cycle of growth, transformation and progress. 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. Now, let’s take a detailed look at the week ahead and what we can do to make the most of this special energy!

 

Monday February 13th we start the week with a day of strong intuition and a good flow of energy supporting problem-solving and “thinking outside the box”.

 

Tuesday February 14th is a high-energy day that begins a powerful 3-week period of transformation, progress and healing. This has the potential to be one of the most significant times during this entire year for growth! 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.
Wednesday February 15th is a high-energy day that is a continuation of yesterday’s themes and energies. This special 3-week cycle of energy has started on a very powerful note, so make sure that you consciously make use of this time to actively work on the areas I mentioned above in order to reap the greatest benefits.

 

Thursday February 16th it’s a good idea to continue working with the energy cycle that started on Tuesday. Be careful of how you express yourself today, and only share your opinions or ideas after carefully thinking them through first.

 

Friday February 17th continue working with the current, powerful energy cycle. Be aware that this strong energy can make one feel overly-sensitive and/or defensive today, so be aware of this in yourself and others. Rather than reacting negatively/defensively when others are making suggestions or offering opinions, take at least a few minutes to consider what is being said. Flexibility is important for growth, so make sure that you don’t close yourself off to potentially good ideas!

 

Saturday February 18th is a day for taking action and continuing work with the current, powerful energy cycle. Be aware that if your energy isn’t grounded, or if you aren’t actively making the best possible use of the energy, there is potential for being short-tempered or argumentative. If you notice this in yourself, take time for a “grounding” practise… and remember to be more patient with others.

 

Sunday February 19th we finish the week with a day of gentle, flowing energy… a day to relax, re-balance and recharge yourself. It’s also a good day to try something new for relaxation, so be creative and open yourself to possibilities!

 

Wishing all of you a fantastic week ahead!

Many blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast, Feb 6th – 12th 2017

Hello Everyone,

We have some exciting energy coming up this week, the highlights being Jupiter turning retrograde on Monday to start the week and then the Full Moon in Leo combined with a penumbral lunar eclipse on Saturday! There are also some great opportunities for revamping your life and transforming areas of it that may be feeling stagnant or “stuck”. So let’s take a detailed look at this week and what we can do to make the most of this exciting energy:


Monday February 6th we begin the week with a high-energy day when we have Jupiter turning retrograde until the beginning of June. During the time of Jupiter retrograde, the emphasis is placed upon awareness and inner-growth. This makes it an ideal time to reflect upon your spiritual beliefs, practises and personal philosophy. Are you being honest with yourself? Are you “all talk” or do you back up your beliefs with your actions? During the time of Jupiter retrograde, we can learn much about ourselves in this area and how we can live life with more integrity.

It’s also a good time for foreign travel, new and enriching experiences and furthering one’s education. In terms of business, the greatest rewards will be experienced as a result of connections made and seeds planted in the past. Jupiter is also connected to celebration and enjoying life, so during this retrograde period it’s a good idea to reflect upon whether or not you are enjoying life enough (or perhaps too much/little!).

In addition to this Jupiter retrograde energy, today there is also lots of support in exploring how you can use your particular skills for a higher cause.

 

Tuesday February 7th the intuition will be especially strong and the energy will be focused in the areas of mental pursuits, original thinking and problem-solving. In order to make the most of your intuition today, try to start the day with meditation (even just a few minutes) so that you are more receptive to flashes of guidance and inspiration throughout the day.

 

Wednesday February 8th we have a day of gentle, flowing energy. Rather than starting new projects or trying to accomplish many tasks, it’s a good idea to maintain work on current projects and focus your time and energy wisely.

 

Thursday February 9th is a high-energy day that encourages exploration in how you can use your particular skills for a higher cause (much like we experienced on Monday), as well as using strengthened intuition to guide you in changing or empowering any part of your life in which you may be feeling “blocked”, dissatisfaction or aimless. There is great potential for breakthroughs, so take time to reflect upon any area(s) of your life that you would like to transform and be open to receiving guidance in this process.

 

Friday February 10th is a high-energy day that is a continuation of the energies and themes that we experienced yesterday. In addition, there is also great potential for breakthroughs in the area of healing, so take time for a full energy-healing session (Reiki or other energy healing), either a self-treatment or receiving a treatment from a practitioner. As tomorrow is a very high-energy day, you may notice the energy strengthen as the day goes on. A special note about today: depending on where you live, you may experience the Full Moon with the Eclipse today rather than tomorrow (we experience it in Hong Kong tomorrow).

 

Saturday February 11th is a VERY high-energy day when we experience the Full Moon in Leo and the first eclipse of 2017. Any Full Moon is a good time to “take stock” of how you’ve been doing since the previous Full Moon, but the influence of Leo places emphasis on the areas of leadership, calculated risk, enjoyment, playfulness, and giving enough of your time for rest and relaxation. The energy of the eclipse will greatly empower and energise these aspects!

To make the most of this energy, try doing a special 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, you can use any method of sending Reiki by distance, so go with whatever you prefer.

The eclipse will be visible from most of Asia, the Americas, Europe and Africa, but as it’s a penumbral eclipse, it won’t be very dramatic to observe. You may just notice a slight shadow across the Moon. Here in Hong Kong, the peak of the eclipse will occur around dawn, but no matter where you live you will experience this lunar eclipse energy. The most important aspect of this eclipse is the opportunity for peaceful and harmonious personal revolution. What part(s) of your life would you like to transform? Reflect upon this and then use today’s energy to make a start!

 

Sunday February 12th we finish the week with a day of gentle, flowing energy. Quite a change from what we’ve experienced over the past couple of days! Today is best spent on enjoyable activities, but don’t push yourself too hard. Allow yourself to relax, recharge and and “go with the flow” as much as possible.

 

Wishing all of you a productive and positive week ahead!

Many blessings,

Chantal
