Weekly Forecast, Aug 28th – Sept 3rd 2017

Hello Everyone,

After all of the active and intense energy we experienced last week, it may come as a relief to many that this week the energy will be much gentler. Aside from the highlight of two “Master Energy” days (the 31st and the 3rd), the week should flow quite smoothly. So let’s take a detailed look at what we can expect this week and how we can make the most of the energy:

Monday August 28th the week begins with a day of gentle, flowing energy. Rather than starting new projects or trying to accomplish many tasks, it’s a good idea to continue working on current projects and “go with the flow” as much as possible today.

 

Tuesday August 29th we have a second day of gentle, flowing energy. As with yesterday, continue working on current projects and don’t overdo it by trying to accomplish too many things.

 

Wednesday August 30th the energy will be very supportive in the areas of creating strategies and goals, organising, putting more energy into the area of helping/mentoring others, and healing (both for the self and for others). Reflect upon these different aspects in order to decide where you would like to apply today’s energy in order to make the most of it.

 

Thursday August 31st we finish the month with 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 (3+1+8+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.

 

Friday September 1st we begin a new month with lots of energy supporting the areas of creativity and creative expression, personal development and stronger-than-usual intuition. It’s a good idea to start the day with meditation (even just a few minutes!) so that you are better able to receive intuitive guidance throughout the day. Take time to reflect upon the area of personal development and pay attention to any “flashes of inspiration” that you may receive regarding this.

 

Saturday September 2nd the energy will be actively flowing in the areas of making progress with ideas and projects, as well as social activities. Perhaps you can continue working on any strategies or ideas that may have been inspired by Wednesday’s energies, but whatever you choose to work on, this energy should be used consciously. Or, you may choose to enjoy the day with friends or loved ones… today’s energy is great for this!

 

Sunday September 3rd we finish the week with 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 (3+9+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 wonderful week ahead!

Many blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast, Aug. 21st – 27th 2017

Hello Everyone,

We have a very active week coming up! The highlight is the New Moon in Leo combined with the energy of a full solar eclipse… very powerful! However, there are also some other powerful days ahead, including a Master Energy day on Tuesday and Saturn turning “direct” on Friday. There is so much wonderful potential this week: manifesting goals, healing, increasing the flow of prosperity and abundance and starting new projects. To make the most of this energy, it’s important to stay grounded and focused. If you find yourself feeling agitated or “all over the place”, this indicates that the energy isn’t being used in the most positive way. In this case, it’s very helpful to practise a grounding technique. You can read the article I have written about grounding and various techniques here: http://www.healingfire.com/tips-for-grounding/ as well as trying my free, guided meditation which can be found here: http://www.healingfire.com/mp3/ So now let’s take a detailed look at the week ahead and what we can do to make best use of the energy:

Monday August 21st is a VERY high-energy day when we experience the New Moon in Leo combined with a solar eclipse! Although this total eclipse will only be visible from the US, the energy of this event will be experienced no matter where you live. Any New Moon is a wonderful time for new beginnings and fresh starts, but the dynamic influence of Leo places extra emphasis on the areas of leadership, performing, creativity, enjoying life (as well as enjoying rest and relaxation!), as well as working with children and/or the inner-child. The solar eclipse will act as a “super-charger” for all of these aspects, so make sure you that you seize the opportunity to make the most of the energy!

Today is ideal for new starts, and any activities or projects started today will receive a big push of energy. The intuition will also be especially strong, so allow it to guide you in deciding what direction to take in using this very active energy. This intense energy can also have the effect of bringing unresolved issues to the surface in order to be healed and released, so if you find yourself experiencing this, make sure you take time for a full healing session (Reiki or other energy healing).

A good way to connect with the energy today is through 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.

If you are a Reiki 2 (or above) practitioner, you can sit quietly and use your favourite method of Distance Reiki to send Reiki to the Moon. In this way, you can tap directly into these lunar energies.

 

Tuesday August 22nd we have our second VERY high-energy day in a row, with the emphasis on new beginnings, productivity, healing and personal health. Choose the area(s) which you’d like to focus on and then actively use the energy to do so. As this is also a day of “Master Energy”, all activities can be empowered!

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+2+8+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 August 23rd is a high-energy day when the energy will be focused on the areas of imagination, visualisation, creativity and using your talents/abilities to help others. There is also an aspect of spiritual awakening, so taking time for meditation and any type of spiritual practise is especially beneficial today. Manifesting goals through visualisation techniques such as the Law of Attraction and energy techniques such as Reiki Affirmations is also strongly supported today.

 

Thursday August 24th the energy will be focused mainly on the area of healing. Perhaps unresolved issues have been coming to the surface this week as a result of the intense energy, or maybe there are certain habits/issues that you have already been working on. Whatever the case, it is well worth setting aside time for a full healing session today as there is great potential for healing and releasing. Another aspect to today’s energy is that of improving one’s finances. Reflect upon practical ways in which you can work on this, as well as taking time to work on visualisations and Reiki affirmations connected to increasing the flow of prosperity and abundance.

 

Friday August 25th is a high-energy day when we experience Saturn turning “direct” after being retrograde since the beginning of April. Saturn retrograde gave us time 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.

Now that Saturn is “direct”, whatever plans you’ve been making or pondering since the beginning of April are now ready to be put into action! Take responsibility, make strategies and create a clear schedule for implementation. You should also think about what habits and methods you need to change in order to do this. It’s also a great time to think about how you can do more in terms of service to others and to assess “where you’re at” on your healing path. Ask yourself what actions you can take NOW in order to further yourself on this path of healing, both for yourself and for others.

 

Saturday August 26th we can expect a gentler flow of energy today and support in the areas of creative expression, learning, communication and enjoyment.

 

Sunday August 27th we can enjoy a day of harmonious, flowing energy. Today there is also an emphasis on balance, so it’s worthwhile taking time to reflect upon the different areas of life and whether or not there is balance. You can then work on the areas that need more attention and energy.

 

Wishing all of you a wonderfully positive and active week ahead!

Many blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast, Aug. 14th – 20th 2017

Hello Everyone,

You’ll notice that this week, although we don’t have any particular “highlights”, we can look forward to a steady amount of active, positive energy. There are also days of heightened intuition as well as an especially supportive time from Tuesday until Sunday when any techniques for increasing/improving finances (visualisation techniques, Reiki affirmations etc.) can have better results than usual, so make sure set aside some time every day to work on these. The big event to look forward to actually occurs next week on Monday the 21st, when we experience the potent combination of a lunar eclipse and the New Moon. Referred to as the “great American eclipse” (as this total eclipse will be visible across the US), no matter where you live in the world you can experience the energy. You can check the following link for details on viewing this eclipse:

https://www.timeanddate.com/eclipse/map/2017-august-21

I will provide more information about this event in my next Weekly Forecast, but here are some main points: the New Moon is in Leo, which brings a fiery and active energy. The solar eclipse gives a huge boost to this energy, so it’s all about dynamic new beginnings, quick progress, being connected and getting lots of energy to assist you in these processes. The flip-side of this is that if the energy is unbalanced, it can manifest in unsettling or even aggressive ways. So make sure that you stay grounded and be conscious of using the energy in the most positive and beneficial ways.

So now let’s take a detailed look at the week ahead, what to expect and how to make the best use of the energy:

Monday August 14th we begin the week with a high-energy day focused on taking action. The intuition will be stronger than usual today, so allow it to guide you in choosing which area(s) of life to focus this active energy. It’s a good idea to start the day with meditation (even just a few minutes!) so that you are better able to receive inspiration and intuitive guidance throughout the day. There is also great support today for creative activity and expression.

 

Tuesday August 15th is a high-energy day with the focus on relationships and communication. If relationships are balanced, expect these to be empowered. However, be aware that any imbalances can be highlighted. In this case, you can work on resolving any conflicts by focusing on communicating from the heart, with love and compassion. In addition to the focus on relationships and communication, today there are great opportunities for increasing finances. Be open to new ideas and suggestions, and take time to use visualisation/intention techniques for manifesting a greater flow of prosperity. For Reiki 2 practitioners, any Reiki affirmations related to finances should be worked on today. The energy supporting the financial area will be flowing throughout the rest of the week, so take time every day for your manifesting practise!

 

Wednesday August 16th we can expect a day of gentle, flowing energy. Rather than trying to accomplish many tasks, focus only on the most important ones and try to just “go with the flow” as much as possible today. As with yesterday, take time for any visualisation/manifesting technique related to finances.

 

Thursday August 17th the energy will be more active than yesterday and the intuition will be stronger than usual today, so pay attention to any “gut feelings” and listen to your inner-voice. It’s a good idea to start the day with meditation so that you are better able to receive inspiration and intuitive guidance throughout the day. Creative activities are also well-supported today.

 

Friday August 18th we can expect active energy, supporting us in completing tasks and staying busy. However, this energy isn’t frantic, so don’t overdo it and make sure you listen to your inner-voice when choosing where to spend your energy. Remember to continue working with your visualisation/manifesting techniques!

 

Saturday August 19th we can look forward to a day of light, bright energy! This energy encourages us to enjoy ourselves, so set aside this day to do just that. Outdoor activities, whether relaxing or energetic, are a great idea. Social activities are another great way to make the most of the energy. Whatever you choose to do, keep it light and enjoyable!

 

Sunday August 20th is a high-energy day when many will notice the energy increasing as the day goes on and we approach tomorrow’s VERY high-energy combination of the New Moon and the lunar eclipse. You may feel very motivated today along with a positive attitude towards accomplishing tasks and being active. So get busy and use the energy to its full potential! You may also want to set aside time today to reflect upon tomorrow’s themes (as mentioned in the introduction of this Weekly Forecast) and how you can make the best use of the potent energy available.

 

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

Many blessings,
Chantal

Weekly Forecast, Aug. 7th – 13th 2017

Hello Everyone,

We have some very powerful days to look forward to this week! The big day is Monday, with the Full Moon in Aquarius getting a big boost of energy from the partial lunar eclipse. The other highlights of the week include Mercury turning retrograde on Saturday and a “Master” energy day on Sunday. You can expect the energy to be very active this week, with great opportunities for productivity, creativity and personal transformation. However, these things won’t just happen by themselves. You need to consciously use the energy in order to make the most of it! So now let’s see what the week has in store for us and how we can best use this energy:

Monday August 7th is a VERY high-energy day when we experience the Full Moon in Aquarius combined with the “amplifying” energy of a lunar eclipse. Please check the following link to find out about the eclipse in your part of the world: https://www.timeanddate.com/eclipse/lunar/2017-august-7 Here in Hong Kong, the peak of the partial eclipse will occur at 2:20am.

Any Full Moon is a good time to reflect on the time since the last Full Moon and consider what you need to release and/or adjustments you can make in different areas of your life in order to make things flow more smoothly, and then create a plan to put these into practise. The influence of Aquarius places special emphasis on the area of the intuition and encourages us to reflect upon whether or not we are listening to and following the intuition. At this time we are also encouraged to think about our sense of individuality and living life in an authentic way. It’s also a good time to think about whether or not you are using your unique talents and abilities in ways that benefit yourself and others.

Remember that the eclipse will give a big boost to these areas! This Full Moon also brings great support in taking action in the areas mentioned above. There are also great opportunities for empowering creativity, spiritual practises, healing, transformation and increasing the flow of abundance/prosperity in to your life.

A good way to connect with the energy today is through 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 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 (of course, you could also use any other preferred method of distance Reiki). In this way, you can tap directly into these lunar energies.

As the summer is here, how about getting together with friends to experience the special energy outdoors? You can do a group meditation, or even just enjoy an evening meal ‘al fresco’. Appreciate the Moon, and feel a sense of gratitude for the beauty of nature, and the love from those around us.

 

Tuesday August 8th is a high-energy day when we will still be feeling some of the energetic effects of yesterday’s Full Moon/lunar eclipse combination. The intuition will be stronger than usual today and there is plenty of energy supporting us in taking action. There is also great support in creative pursuits and inspiration!

 

Wednesday August 9th the energy is all about personal transformation, empowerment and inspiration. This energy can be applied to the areas of work, relationships, creativity and finances. Listen to your intuition and allow it to guide you in working with the energy and applying it to the appropriate areas.

 

Thursday August 10th we can look forward to a day of strong, bright, positive energy! Harmonious communication as well as bringing divine energy into physical activities (yoga, tai-chi, ecstatic dance etc.) are very strongly supported today. This wonderful energy encourages us to enjoy the moment, take action and allow the true self to shine!

 

Friday August 11th the energy will be focused on the areas of imagination, visualisation, creativity and using your talents/abilities to help others. There is also an aspect of spiritual awakening, so taking time for meditation and any type of spiritual practise is especially beneficial today. Perhaps you can meditate on the areas mentioned above and see what sort of inspiration is received!

 

Saturday August 12th is a high-energy day when we experience Mercury turning retrograde until September 5th. Mercury retrograde often gets a “bad rap” because of the likelihood of problems and mix-ups in the areas of communication, travel and technology. However, you can 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.

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.

 

Sunday August 13th we finish the week with 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 (1+3+8+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 positive and powerful week ahead!

Many blessings,

Chantal

 

Weekly Forecast, July 31st – August 6th 2017

Hello Everyone,

We’ve had a very quiet time this week so far, but things are going to get very active for the rest of the week. The highlights this week include Uranus turning retrograde on Thursday, as well as Master Energy on Friday. The active energy we will experience for the rest of the week is building up to next Monday, the 7th, when we have the Full Moon in Aquarius combined with a lunar eclipse (which acts like a huge boost to the Full Moon energy!). This partial lunar eclipse will be visible from Hong Kong, but please click on the following link to find out whether or not it will be visible in your part of the world: https://www.timeanddate.com/eclipse/lunar/2017-august-7
So now let’s take a look at what the rest of the week has in store for us:

 

As mentioned above, Monday July 31st to Wednesday August 2nd have been “quiet”.

 

Thursday August 3rd we have Uranus turning retrograde until early January 2018. The effects of Uranus tend to be more pronounced during a retrograde period. One especially strong effect is an awakening, or re-awakening, of a desire to break free of any restrictions, confines or stagnant areas of life. If you find yourself experiencing this, it is advisable to examine the situation carefully and then create a clear strategy for breaking free and moving forward. However, depending on your situation, it may be better to wait until Uranus turns “direct” again before actually putting the plan into action (don’t force the situation, move forward only if it feels right). Uranus influences the intuition and inventiveness, so we can expect powerful moments of inspiration and guidance that can assist in making plans for more freedom and life changes. We are also strongly supported in expressing our true-selves clearly and openly.

There is great potential during a time of Uranus retrograde, but be aware that if you living in a state of imbalance, it can be a very challenging time. Clear signs of this include feeling agitated or irritable, nervous or anxious for little or no apparent reason. There can also be a strong sense of everything “being out of control”. If you experience any of these things, it is important to first GROUND yourself and then take stock of each area of your life (relationships, health and well-being, career, finances etc.). Any area that is stagnating or in a state of disharmony is a clear indication that changes need to be made, so take this opportunity of Uranus retrograde to create a plan of change and action. Once you begin this process, you’ll find yourself feeling more peaceful, fulfilled and balanced on all levels.

 

Friday August 4th is a very high-energy day with the emphasis on increasing abundance, empowering relationships and giving a big boost of energy to any social/community activities. There is also a spiritual aspect to this energy, specifically in the area of personal transformation. Choose the area(s) which you’d like to focus on and then actively use the energy to do so. As this is also a day of “Master Energy”, all activities can be empowered!

According to numerology this day has special energetic significance because the numbers of today’s date add up to the “Master Number” of 22 (4+8+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.

 

Saturday August 5th is a high-energy day with great potential for creativity and creative expression in all its forms. You can also try considering how you can share the fruits of your creativity with others. This energy is active, so make the most of it! Activities that are connected to spirituality (yoga, tai chi, ecstatic dance etc.) are also strongly supported, but whatever you do make sure that it is an activity that you enjoy and that makes you feel alive!

 

Sunday August 6th we finish the week with a high-energy day focused on relationships and communication. If relationships are balanced, expect these to be empowered. However, be aware that any imbalances can be highlighted. In this case, you can work on resolving any conflicts by focusing on communicating from the heart, with love and compassion. In addition to the focus on relationships and communication, today there are great opportunities for increasing the financial area of life. Be open to new ideas and suggestions, and take time to use visualisation/intention techniques for manifesting a greater flow of prosperity. For Reiki 2 practitioners, any Reiki affirmations related to finances should be worked on today.

 

Wishing all of you a great rest of the week!

Many blessings,

Chantal
