Weekly Forecast, Nov. 27th – Dec. 3rd 2017

Hello Everyone,

Although we have a couple of “low-key” days this week, most of the week we can expect very active energy. Along with good opportunities for communication, healing, relationships and taking action, as well as a Master Energy day on Tuesday, the BIG highlight this week occurs on Sunday. On this day we will experience a Super Full Moon as well as Mercury turning retrograde! This will be the final Full Moon of 2017, and it sure is going to be a powerful one. With that, let’s take a detailed look at the energy this week and how we can make the most of it:


Monday November 27th the week begins with energy focused on the two areas of creativity and relationships. What changes or adjustments can you make in these areas in order to empower them and create a greater sense of harmony and fulfilment?

 

Tuesday November 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+1+1+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, especially those related to prosperity and abundance, 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 November 29th we can expect a day of gentle, flowing energy. After yesterday’s strong and active energy, plus another high-energy day tomorrow, today you should try to just “go with the flow” and not push yourself too hard.

 

Thursday November 30th is a high-energy day with the focus on healing, communication (especially within significant relationships) and leadership. If you are in a committed relationship, take time to reflect upon whether or not you feel it’s limiting you in any way. If so, think of ways in which you can work on releasing these limitations. It could be that you and your significant other need to work together on these areas, or perhaps you need to work on clearly communicating your needs and aims. In fact, it’s a good idea to reflect upon how you communicate in all areas of your life: do you express your thoughts and feelings clearly and calmly? Do you take time to listen? With a period of Mercury retrograde coming up (a time when communication issues often arise), try to harmonise your communication skills now.

With regards to healing, the energy today has the potential to bring up old, emotional “wounds” so that they can be healed and released. If you notice yourself feeling “triggered” today, take time to think about what issues need to be resolved. It’s a great day for a healing session, either a self-treatment or receiving healing from a practitioner (Reiki or other energy healing).

 

Friday December 1st we begin the final month of the year with lots of strong energy focused in the areas of relationships, both romantic and friendships. We can expect this influence to continue throughout the month of December, bringing opportunities for deeper emotional connection and a greater sense of passion within romantic relationships, while there are also great opportunities to connect with new people and make new friends.

 

Saturday December 2nd is a high-energy day with the focus on action and communication. Tomorrow’s energy will be very intense, so we can expect to experience the energy building in intensity today as we approach the time of Sunday’s Full Moon.

 

Sunday December 3rd we finish the week with a VERY high-energy day! Today we experience the final Full Moon of 2017, and it certainly is a powerful one: a “Super Moon”! When the Full Moon coincides with the time of the Moon’s closest approach to the Earth, it is referred to as a “Super Moon”. Energetically, it is said that this “closeness” to the Earth greatly intensifies the effect of the Full Moon. Any Full Moon is a good time to reflect upon the time since the last Full Moon and see what we have accomplished and what changes or adjustments we need to make in order to move forward. The influence of Gemini places special emphasis on the areas of information, communication and connecting with those around you. What changes or adjustments can you make in these areas? People may feel more talkative than usual at this time, but make sure that you choose your words wisely: express your truth, be open, but communicate with kindness.

Remember that the close proximity of this Full Moon not only means that it will appear to be larger than usual, but the energetic effects are greatly amplified… but you must consciously use the energy in order to benefit from it.

One way of connecting more fully with today’s energy is by practising a Full Moon meditation. You can do your own meditation, or choose to meditate on all you have to be grateful for in your life, or you can do a Full Moon meditation in the following way:

Sit quietly and comfortably, with the hands resting on the knees (palms facing up), breathing deeply and evenly, whilst contemplating the Moon. Imagine that with every in-breath, your up-turned hands draw in a bright, silvery light from the Moon. See the light enter your hands, travel up to your shoulders, and then to the centre of the chest (where it collects in the heart chakra). This light at the centre of the chest then spreads throughout your body. Continue breathing in the light, spreading it through your body, for as long as it feels right for you. (When you exhale, just allow the breath to leave the body). When you feel/visualise that your entire body is filled with this silvery light, you can then try expanding this light throughout your aura, and beyond.

If you are a Reiki 2 (or above) practitioner, you can sit quietly with the Moon in view and send Reiki to it using the technique of “beaming”. Of course, feel free to use any method of distant healing that you may prefer (depending on where you are, a photograph may be the most practical way!). In this way, you can tap directly into these lunar energies.

In addition to the Super Full Moon, today is also significant because we experience Mercury turning retrograde until December 23rd. 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 previously, 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 powerful, positive and productive week ahead!

Many blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast, Nov. 20th – 26th 2017

Hello Everyone,

This week we have a good balance of strong and gentle energy, along with good opportunities for healing, transformation, creative expression and strong intuitive guidance. The highlight of the week occurs on Wednesday, when we experience Neptune turning “direct” after 5 months of it being retrograde. We also have the start of a 4-week cycle of light, active energy that encourages lots of exploration and expansion. 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 November 20th we start the week with a day of gentle, flowing energy. Rather than starting new projects or trying to accomplish many tasks, focus on current projects and try to “go with the flow” if possible.

 

Tuesday November 21st we can expect a strong flow of energy in the areas of creativity and relationship strengthening/transformation (this applies to all types of relationships). Today also marks the beginning of a 4-week cycle of energy that supports exploration, especially in the areas of philosophy, discovery and expanding one’s horizons. This active energy also encourages a sense of lightness, so be conscious of bringing a light energy to situations and those around you rather than being overbearing, “heavy” or overly serious. During this 4-week cycle you may also feel like you’re capable of taking on anything, but make sure that you don’t stretch yourself too thinly by trying to accomplish many tasks or taking on too many commitments.

 

Wednesday November 22nd is a high-energy day when we experience Neptune turning “direct” after being retrograde since June 16th. Neptune is related to living in harmony with your higher purpose, divine inspiration and the spiritual area of life. During a retrograde period of Neptune, we can become much more aware of that which does and doesn’t serve our higher purpose and then make the necessary changes and adjustments that allow us to let go, change and transform our lives in positive, powerful ways.

If you have been actively working on these areas during the time of Neptune retrograde (which is not an easy process!), things should get much easier with Neptune turning direct.
Furthermore, the intuition is highlighted so allow it to guide you, especially in the areas of spirituality, your true life purpose and psychic/3rd eye awakening. Creativity is also strongly supported now, with the imagination empowered and inspiration to be found all around you.

However, be aware that there is a darker side to Neptune direct: choosing fantasy over reality. This can manifest as deluding oneself that a negative, stagnant or unhelpful situation is fine to tolerate or live with. For example, staying in an unhealthy relationship, a “dead-end” or unfulfilling job, justifying unhealthy habits etc. In order to avoid falling into this trap of illusion, use your heart and intuition! In particular, don’t “play the victim” in relationships.

Take a step back and reflect upon the different areas of your life (relationships, work, health, spirituality, life-path etc.). As you reflect upon each one, how do you feel? If you’re not feeling fulfilled or empowered, it’s time for some big changes. So many people accept their situations because of fear: fear of being alone, fear of not being able to support oneself, fear of change, fear of failure etc. In order to avoid facing reality, they embrace illusions. Don’t fall into this trap! Stay focused, gather your energy and make a strategy for change that you can act upon as soon as possible.

 

Thursday November 23rd we can expect a day of gentle, flowing energy. Continue work on current projects rather than starting new ones, and don’t push yourself too hard. Try to “go with the flow”, if possible.

 

Friday November 24th is a high-energy day with the energy focused on significant relationships. If you are in a committed relationship, take time to reflect upon whether or not you feel it’s limiting you in any way. If so, think of ways in which you can work on releasing these limitations. It could be that you and your significant other need to work together on these areas, or perhaps you need to work on clearly communicating your needs and aims.

In addition to this, healing practises are strongly supported today, so take time for a full self-treatment (Reiki or other energy healing) or receive a treatment from a practitioner as there is great potential for healing and releasing.

 

Saturday November 25th the intuition will be especially strong and there is good support for adventurous and expansive thinking. It’s a good idea to take note of any flashes of inspiration, and pay attention to any “signs” today. In order to make the most of your intuition today, I recommend starting the day with meditation (even just a few minutes!) so that you are better able to receive intuitive guidance throughout the day.

 

Sunday November 26th the week ends with the energy focused on the areas of creative expression and relationship healing. Reflect upon these two areas in your life and actively use the energy where it is needed.

 

Wishing all of you a positive and empowering week ahead.

Many blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast, Nov. 13th – 19th 2017

Hello Everyone,

The most powerfully energetic days this week happen over the weekend when we experience the New Moon in Scorpio followed by a Master Energy day. Fantastic days for new starts, growth and manifesting your goals! During the week, despite a couple of “quiet” days, we can also expect good opportunities for working on relationships as well as clear communication. So now let’s take a detailed look at the week ahead and how we can make the best use of the energy:

Monday November 13th the week begins with lots of positive energy flowing in the areas of creativity, relationships and work projects. Expect lots of inspiration in these areas and make the most of the energy by actively using it.

 

Tuesday November 14th we can expect a day of gentle, flowing energy. Rather than starting new projects or trying to accomplish many tasks, continue work on current projects and don’t overload yourself. The energy will be much stronger towards the end of the week, so try to save new projects for then (especially with the New Moon on Saturday).

 

Wednesday November 15th we experience a second day of gentle, flowing energy. As with yesterday, stay focused on current projects and don’t overdo things.

 

Thursday November 16th the energy will be focused on significant relationships. If you are in a committed relationship, take time to reflect upon whether or not you feel it’s limiting you in any way. If so, think of ways in which you can work on releasing these limitations. It could be that you and your significant other need to work together on these areas, or perhaps you need to work on clearly communicating your needs and aims.

 

Friday November 17th the focus is on communication today, especially in expressing yourself clearly and directly. Try asking for exactly what you need, and most likely you’ll receive it!

 

Saturday November 18th is a VERY high-energy day when we experience the New Moon in Scorpio. Any New Moon is an excellent time for new beginnings and fresh starts, but the influence of Scorpio places special emphasis on the areas of leadership, responsibility, productivity, working in harmony with others, and also good opportunities for healing old wounds. What new energy can you bring to these areas? It is very important to to be flexible and open to change, so if you have been experiencing any blockages or difficulties in any of these areas of life, look at what adjustments you need to make yourself in order to create harmonious change. This is a time for growth, not stubbornness!

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 use your favourite method of Distance Reiki in order to send energy to the Moon. By doing this, you can connect directly with the lunar energy.

 

Sunday November 19th we experience a second day of VERY high-energy. 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+9+1+1+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 (especially those related to prosperity and abundance), 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 powerful and positive week ahead.

Many blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast, Nov. 6th – 12th 2017

Hello Everyone,

This week is quite a contrast to last week: instead of lots of high-energy days, over half of the days this week we can expect gentle, flowing energy. The main theme of the week is “transformation”, especially in the area of committed relationships. However, this process of transformation can also occur in other areas, depending on your focus. Take some time at the beginning of the week to reflect upon what area(s) of life you would like to transform, and then take practical steps to start doing so. Of course, this often involves letting go of old habits etc. If you are experiencing difficulty with the process of letting go, the root issue needs to be healed first. Listen to your intuition (which will also be very strong this week) and allow it to guide you in transforming. So now let’s take a detailed look at the energy this week and what to expect:

Monday November 6th we start the week with a day of gentle, flowing energy. Rather than starting new projects or trying to accomplish many tasks, it’s a good idea to work on existing projects and not overload yourself.

 

Tuesday November 7th the focus is on sharing your energy with others, and with the intuition stronger than usual, allow it to guide you in the following areas today: creative expression, empowering or transforming relationships, and doing more work or supporting causes that benefit others.

 

Wednesday November 8th we can expect a day of “low-key” energy. Rather than starting new projects or trying to accomplish many tasks, it’s a good idea to continue work on existing projects and focus only what needs to be done today.

 

Thursday November 9th the energy is all about transformation: furthering your own process or using the energy in order to help others in their process of transformation. These changes can take place in different areas depending on where you choose to focus the energy, whether it’s physical, emotional, mental or spiritual. Creative expression also gets lots of support today.

 

Friday November 10th we can expect another day of “low-key” energy. As advised previously, rather than starting new projects on a day like today, it’s a good idea to continue work on current projects. Remember not to overdo things or stretch yourself too thinly.

 

Saturday November 11th we experience a day of strong intuition, so allow it to guide you in applying the energy in a practical sense. Although it’s a great day for creative expression, the main focus will be on transforming committed relationships. It’s time to bring in a new level of depth, openness and honesty… this may require some self-healing and looking deeply at one’s “shadow self”, but the results are absolutely worthwhile.

 

Sunday November 12th the week finishes with a day of gentle, flowing energy. It’s a day perfectly suited to relaxation and recharging, so allow yourself to let go and enjoy it!

 

Wishing all of you a wonderful week ahead!

Many blessings,

Chantal
