Weekly Forecast, May 1st – 7th 2017

Hello Everyone,

We’ve got a week of active energy ahead, but we do get a couple of “quiet” days in the mix on which to rest and recharge. The big news of the week is that Mercury turns “direct” after being retrograde since April 9th, so it’s “full steam ahead”! Another highlight is the Master energy day on Sunday to finish the week. There are also very good opportunities for manifesting abundance and prosperity, so make sure you make good use of the energy! So now let’s take a detailed look at what we can expect this week and how to make the best use of the energy coming up:


Monday May 1st we begin the week with a day of light, bright energy and intuition that is stronger than usual. Set aside time for meditation (try to aim for at least 10 minutes) so that you are better able to receive guidance and “flashes of inspiration” today, especially in the areas of creativity, relationships and financial matters.

 

Tuesday May 2nd expect a day of gentle, flowing energy. Rather than starting new projects or trying to accomplish many tasks, it’s a good idea to just “go with the flow” as much as possible today.

 

Wednesday May 3rd is a high-energy day when we experience Mercury turning “direct” after being retrograde since April 9th. 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!

In addition to this, it’s a great day to make inspired changes in the areas of relationships and creative expression. This empowering energy is also great for manifesting more abundance in your life, so take time to work on any goals you may have in this area (using visualisations, Law of Attraction, Reiki Affirmations etc.).

 

Thursday May 4th is a high-energy day that has great potential as long as you stay focused and use the energy consciously. There is much support today in strengthening and expanding your personal energy, as well as any exercises/visualisations for manifesting prosperity and abundance. Set aside some time to sit quietly and visualise each of your prosperity/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.

 

Friday May 5th is another high-energy day that has great potential, but today it’s all about increasing the flow of abundance, healing/releasing old hurts and also supporting committed partnerships. However, be warned that if you have been ignoring any imbalances or problems in these areas, these issues may be pushed to the surface today. Rather than avoiding these issues or “burying your head in the sand”, use today’s potent energy to take action in restoring balance and harmony to these areas (otherwise you’ll find that these issues will only worsen and cause more stress or unease).

There is also good potential today for productivity, so stay focused and you’ll find that you can get a lot done!

 

Saturday May 6th today we get a bit of a “rest” amongst the strong energy this week with a day of gentle, flowing energy. Take it easy and just “go with the flow” as much as possible. Tomorrow the energy will be much stronger, so save any activities for then.

 

Sunday May 7th we finish the week with a day of strong energy. The numbers of today’s date add up to the “Master Number” of 22 (7+5+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.

 

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

Many blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast, April 24th – 20th 2017

Hello Everyone,

We have some great energy to look forward to this week, the highlight being the New Moon in Taurus/Master Energy combination on Wednesday. There is also some especially powerful energy this week to assist us in healing and releasing old emotional and psychological wounds. However, be aware that if you have been avoiding dealing with these wounds, it could be a challenging week as these issues are pushed to the surface. Rather, open yourself to the healing and releasing process and the great sense of freedom and lightness that comes with it. It’s a difficult process, but well worth it… and it’s an integral part of personal transformation. I have posted a healing/releasing visualisation exercise as part of Sunday’s forecast, so you may find this helpful. But now, let’s take a detailed look at what we can expect throughout the week:


Monday April 24th we begin the week with a very high-energy day and the energy focused on the areas of personal transformation, especially through healing practises as well as other spiritual practises. Today’s energy is especially helpful in releasing old hurts and sorrow, so it’s very worthwhile identifying what you need to heal/release in this area and then working on doing so (through Reiki self-healing, visualisation and meditation etc.). In addition, the energy today is also very supportive in terms of mental productivity. If there are strategies to work on, problem-solving, new projects etc., today is an excellent day on which to do so.

 

Tuesday April 25th we can expect a day of gentle, flowing energy. Rather than trying to accomplish many tasks, focus your attention on only the most important ones and “go with the flow” as much as possible. Tomorrow the energy will be very strong, so save the activity for then!

 

Wednesday April 26th is a VERY high-energy day when we experience the New Moon in Taurus combined with a “Master Energy” day! Any New Moon is a great time for fresh starts and new beginnings, but the influence of Taurus places extra emphasis on the areas of the material, finances, physical enjoyment, focus and persistence and “being in the now”.

To more fully connect with this energy, you can practise a New Moon meditation. You can do your own, 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 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.

For Reiki 2 (and above) practitioners, you can use your favourite method of sending distance Reiki in order to connect with these energies. Prepare your hands as usual, with the Moon being the “recipient”.

In addition to the New Moon, 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+6+4+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). Very powerful when combined with the Taurus New Moon! 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 (especially those related to the New Moon themes mentioned earlier), 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.

 

Thursday April 27th is a high-energy day that has great potential for increasing the flow of abundance, healing/releasing old hurts and also supporting committed partnerships. However, be warned that if you have been ignoring any imbalances or problems in these areas, these issues may be pushed to the surface today. Rather than avoiding these issues or “burying your head in the sand”, use today’s potent energy to take action in restoring balance and harmony to these areas (otherwise you’ll find that these issues will only worsen and cause more stress or unease).

 

Friday April 28th is a high-energy day when the intuition will be stronger than usual and there will be an abundance of positive energy available for boosting creativity, relationships and finances. Pay attention to any intuitive “flashes” related to these areas and get ready to take action! I recommend starting the day with meditation (even just a few minutes!) so that you are better able to receive guidance and intuitive inspiration throughout the day.

 

Saturday April 29th we get a relaxed start to the weekend with a day of gentle, flowing energy. It’s a great day to relax, enjoy and just “go with the flow”.

 

Sunday April 30th is a high-energy day that is all about healing, specifically healing old emotional and psychological wounds. You may have already had these old wounds triggered over the past couple of weeks, or perhaps you are aware of these issues or hurts that are always there, just under the surface. Dealing with these isn’t much fun, to say the least, but it is absolutely necessary in order to transform and become the best possible YOU, on whatever your path in life. So take time today for some serious healing. If you are a Reiki (or other energy) practitioner, do a full self-treatment and take extra time on the heart chakra and any other areas where you intuit there may be emotional trauma “stored”.

Whether or not you are a Reiki practitioner, anyone can practise the following healing visualisation exercise. I have modified this from an Advanced Reiki Training technique, and have found it to be very effective.
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.

In addition to healing, there is one more aspect to today: the energy is very supportive in any exercises/visualisations for manifesting prosperity and abundance. Set aside some time to sit quietly and visualise each of your prosperity/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.

 

 

Wishing all of you a productive, positive and healing week ahead.

Many blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast, April 17th – 23rd 2017

Hello Everyone,

We have quite an active week ahead, the highlights being a Master Energy day on Monday and Pluto turning retrograde on Thursday. There is also a special 7-week energy cycle starting this week that provides wonderful opportunities for empowerment and transformation within committed relationships. Although it is an active week, things will be very “settled” over the weekend so there will be lots of time to rest, relax and recharge at the end of what should be a productive week. So now let’s take a detailed look at the coming week and what we can do to make the most of the energy:


Monday April 17th the week begins with a VERY high-energy day, but be aware that depending on how you use it, this energy can either be productive and empowering or quite frustrating!

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+7+4+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.

If you are experiencing “blockages” or hurdles in any areas of your life, these issues will likely become highlighted today… unless you make some changes or adjustments! Rather than seeing what could change around you, in this case you should change your approach instead.

 

Tuesday April 18th is a high-energy day that marks the beginning of a special 7-week cycle of energy that is all about relationships, specifically transformation and empowerment within committed partnerships. Throughout this time period, focus on working together to be more productive and to create more harmony. Talk about what changes both of you would like to make and then work together to reach these common goals.

However, be warned that if this energy isn’t consciously used or if it used selfishly, there is great likelihood of conflict and even aggression. In order to avoid this, be open and honest with each other, give and receive equally and enthusiastically, and bring a state of joy and harmony to one another… then watch your relationship strengthen and transform!

 

Wednesday April 19th the energy will be light, bright and supportive in increasing the flow of prosperity into your life, as well as emphasising physical/material enjoyment and focus in working on current projects. Although it’s a good day for productivity, don’t overdo it by trying to accomplish too many tasks. Stay focused and remember to take time to enjoy the moment!

 

Thursday April 20th is a high-energy day when we experience Pluto turning retrograde until September 28th. Pluto retrograde is potentially a very powerful time for personal and spiritual growth, but the key to this is releasing from your life that which no longer benefits you. This covers all aspects: patterns, habits, ways of thinking and doing things that no longer serve you, relationships and material objects.

After you have reflected upon all areas of your life and identified what needs to be released, it’s time to take action. This action may be immediate, such as doing a thorough housecleaning and donating/discarding items. When dealing with releasing habits, create a strategy that works for you and then stick to it (enlist the help of those close to you, if need be). Perhaps some healing/releasing work needs to be done, in which case create a healing “schedule” that you stick to.

Releasing relationships is often the most difficult area for most people, but letting go of people whom you no longer connect with, or with whom the relationship has become “toxic”, draining, etc. is absolutely essential. Most often, the root of this reluctance is FEAR (fear of being alone, fear of hurting someone’s feelings, fear of standing up for oneself etc.). If this is the case for you, take time to work on healing and releasing the fear and then you will soon feel empowered enough to take action. Take time once per week to reflect upon your progress in all areas you are working on so that you can feel more motivated and also pinpoint any problematic areas that need more work.

 

Friday April 21st the energy will be supportive in the areas of communication, learning and socialising. Quite nice for a Friday! In addition to this, today is also a good one for seeing below the surface at what is really going on within relationships (both business and personal). We also get a nice “boost” of energy in the area of manifesting prosperity and abundance, so take time to sit quietly and visualise any of your prosperity/abundance goals in their completed forms. Use as many of your senses as possible, truly feel and intend that each goal is now achieved. If you practise something like the Law of Attraction, it’s a great day for these activities. If you are a Reiki 2 (or above) practitioner, make sure to take time to work on your Reiki affirmations!

 

Saturday April 22nd we can expect a day of gentle, flowing energy. Rather than trying to accomplish many tasks, it’s a good idea to take it easy and just “go with the flow” as much as possible. Enjoy the day!

 

Sunday April 23rd we finish the week with our second day of gentle, flowing energy. If you are going to take part in any activities today, make sure that they are enjoyable and relaxing. You should finish this weekend feeling rested and recharged, ready for a new week ahead.

 

Wishing all of you a wonderful week!

Many blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast, April 10th – 16th 2017

Hello Everyone,

We have a very active week ahead with plenty going on! The highlights include one of the most powerful Full Moons of the year on Tuesday, and Venus turning “direct” on Saturday after being retrograde since the beginning of March. We have a couple of “quieter” days mid-week, but the rest of the week will be all about ACTION. There are great opportunities for healing, transformation and increasing the flow of abundance and prosperity, so make good use of the energy. If you find yourself feeling agitated, frustrated or “all over the place”, it’s an indication of not using the energy in a productive way, as well as a lack of grounding. If this is the case for you, practise a grounding exercise and get moving instead of just thinking! For information on grounding and techniques that everyone can practise, please read my article about this subject here: http://www.healingfire.com/tips-for-grounding/ You may also find it useful to listen to my free, guided meditation for Grounding and Energising: https://soundcloud.com/chantal-phillips/guided-meditation-grounding . So now let’s take a detailed look at what we can expect this week:


Monday April 10th the week begins with a VERY high-energy day when the energy will be focused on the areas of personal transformation, especially through healing practises, as well as other spiritual practises. Today’s energy is especially helpful in releasing old hurts and sorrow, so it’s very worthwhile identifying what you need to heal/release in this area and then working on doing so (through Reiki self-healing, visualisation and meditation etc.). It’s also a fantastic day to work on increasing the flow of abundance and prosperity into your life, so take time to sit quietly and visualise each of your goals in these areas 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 related to abundance and prosperity.

 

Tuesday April 11th we experience a second VERY high-energy day. Today we have the Full Moon in Libra, which astrologers are saying will be one of the most powerful Full Moons of 2017 due to its alignment with a very potent planetary array. Any Full Moon is a good time to reflect upon how your life has been flowing since the previous Full Moon and then making the appropriate adjustments or changes in order to make things flow more smoothly. The influence of Libra places extra emphasis on the areas of relationships and creative expression, so ask yourself what you can do in order to improve and empower these areas.

To connect more fully with today’s Full Moon energy, you can try doing a special meditation. You can do your own type, 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. Of course, feel free to use any method of distance Reiki that you may prefer.

In addition to this Full Moon energy, there is a powerful “push” of energy supporting the process of revolutionary transformation! It’s time to get rid of old habits and structures that are holding you back, as well as that which no longer serves your higher purpose! It’s also a day to reflect upon committed relationships and partnerships: what needs to be changed or released in order to support the process of positive transformation?

The intuition is also strengthened and there are great opportunities for taking action, 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. 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 some work with the Law of Attraction or other visualisation techniques, and for Reiki 2 practitioners it’s an excellent day 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!

 

Wednesday April 12th the energy will be more “settled” than yesterday, but we will still be experiencing many of yesterday’s themes, albeit with less intensity. You can use this energy by continuing any “work” that you may have started yesterday.

 

Thursday April 13th is a day of gentle, flowing energy. Rather than trying to accomplish many tasks or start new projects, it’s a good idea to continue work on current projects and “go with the flow” as much as possible.

 

Friday April 14th is a day of taking action: enough with thinking about it, do it! The intuition will be stronger than usual, so allow it to guide you in the actions you take. You can try starting the day with meditation (even just a few minutes!) so that you are better able to receive flashes of intuition and inspiration throughout the day. Today is also an excellent one for practising any physical activities that have a spiritual element (yoga, tai chi, qi-gong, sacred dance etc.).

 

Saturday April 15th is a high-energy day when we experience Venus turning “direct” after being retrograde since March 4th. During the retrograde period, I recommended reflecting and re-evaluating your values and ideals in life. It was 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”. (remembering that when we love and care for ourselves, we attract healthy relationships of all types into our lives). With Venus “direct”, now is the time to put any insights gained into action!

 

Sunday April 16th we finish the week with a high-energy day very much like what we experienced at the beginning of the week, so I will repeat that information here: today’s energy is all about personal transformation, especially through healing practises, as well as other spiritual practises. Today’s energy is especially helpful in releasing old hurts and sorrow, so it’s very worthwhile identifying what you need to heal/release in this area and then working on doing so (through Reiki self-healing, visualisation and meditation etc.). It’s also a fantastic day to work on increasing the flow of abundance and prosperity into your life, so take time to sit quietly and visualise each of your goals in these areas 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 related to abundance and prosperity.

 
Wishing everyone a positive and powerful week ahead, I hope that it is wonderful for all of you!

Many blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast, April 3rd – 9th 2017

Hello Everyone,

The beginning of this week will be relatively quiet, energetically speaking. However, things will soon get very interesting as we experience TWO planets turning retrograde this week: Saturn and Mercury, as well as a “Master Energy” day on Saturday. Rather than looking at the time of the retrograde planets as one of difficulties and challenges, use the time to see what changes need to be made in your life and then TAKE ACTION. There is great potential for positive changes and growth, but is totally up to you to use the energy in the most productive way. These changes won’t happen by themselves! With that, let’s take a detailed look at what we can expect this week and what we can do to make the most of the energy:

Monday April 3rd the week begins with a day of gentle, flowing energy. Rather than trying to accomplish many tasks, it’s a good to idea to work on current projects and “go with the flow” as much as possible.

 

Tuesday April 4th the energy will be supportive in the area of finances, specifically in making changes or adjustments that can give your income a boost. However, it is best not to make any sudden decisions or rush into anything. Move forward with any changes in a “step-by-step” manner.

 

Wednesday April 5th we have another day of gentle, flowing energy. As with Monday, continue working on current projects and avoid overloading yourself. Go with the flow as much as possible. There is some active energy coming up in the days ahead, so take time today to centre and ground yourself in preparation for these.

 

Thursday April 6th is a high-energy day when we experience Saturn turning retrograde until August 25th. The period of Saturn retrograde is one in which to reflect upon the themes of responsibility, self-discipline, maturity and managing one’s time well. It is essential to identify any problems or weaknesses in these areas and then work on correcting them, otherwise progress may be very slow or difficult.

Saturn retrograde is also the time in which to reassess commitments and current projects. Have you taken on too many responsibilities? If so, it’s time to say “NO!”. Focus your energy on current responsibilities and deal with what currently needs to be dealt with. If you’re frustrated, it’s time to either reorganise or renegotiate. Now is the time for setting clear personal boundaries, getting rid of frustrations and blockages and thereby living a better life.

In addition, today there is also support in attracting/increasing the flow of prosperity in to your life. You can assist this process through visualisation and intention (Reiki 2 affirmations, Law of Attraction etc.). Take time to sit quietly and visualise attracting/increasing prosperity into your life. Use as many of your senses as possible and truly intend that this is achieved. If you are a Reiki 2 (or above) practitioner, make sure to work on any affirmations related to prosperity.

 

Friday April 7th is a high-energy day when you may feel like you can accomplish anything! Although the energy today strongly empowers taking action, starting new projects and energising any area of life that you choose to focus on, remember not to overload yourself. Choose the area(s) that you wish to empower and then focus… but not on too many things at once!

 

Saturday April 8th is a VERY 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 (8+4+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.

Additionally, it’s also a good day to reflect upon the areas of relationships, creativity and finances. If you’ve been having difficulties in any of these areas, it’s time to combine the forces of the mind and intuition in order to find ways to improve them. I also recommend using daily meditations and/or visualisations to assist with this.

 

Sunday April 9th we finish the week with a high-energy day when we experience Mercury turning retrograde until May 3rd. Mercury retrograde often gets a “bad rap” because of the likelihood of problems and mix-ups in the areas of communication, travel and technology. 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. However, this can actually be a great time to sort out shortcomings and “blind spots” as these issues are revealed.

As mentioned, 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.

 

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

Many blessings,

Chantal
