Weekly Forecast, Jan. 29th – Feb. 4th 2018

Hello Everyone,

The big highlight this week is a very special event: on Wednesday we experience the first Super Full Blue Blood Moon in over 150 years! Please read on for lots of details on this event and how to make the best use of the powerful energy. In addition to this, there will be good opportunities for healing and releasing old emotional wounds, as well as clearing blockages. So now let’s take a look at this week’s detailed Forecast:


Monday January 29th the week begins with a day of stronger-than-usual intuition and a good flow of energy supporting the areas of creativity and artistic expression. Listen to your inner-voice and pay attention to your “gut instinct” and any “signs”. It’s a good idea to start the day with meditation (even just a few minutes), so that you are clearer and better able to receive intuitive guidance throughout the day.

 

Tuesday January 30th is all about maintaining a balanced emotional state. The energy tomorrow will be very powerful indeed, and one of the effects this can have is stirring up old, unresolved emotional issues. You may notice the energy increasing as the day goes on and we approach the Super Full Moon eclipse. The intense energy can also cause one to feel overly-sensitive and prone to big changes in mood. If you feel old issues being triggered or pushed to the surface, try to take a step back and reflect upon these. Realise that once these emotions are healed and released (they won’t just resolve themselves!), you allow opportunities for growth and personal freedom to come into your life.

Take time for a full Reiki (or other energy healing) session, either a self-treatment or receiving treatments from a practitioner, in order to effectively heal and release. In the case of feeling overly-sensitive or moody, take time for a grounding exercise. You can read about grounding and different techniques in the following article I have written on the subject: http://www.healingfire.com/tips-for-grounding/ A grounding meditation can also be very helpful, so here is the link to my free, guided meditation for grounding and energising: https://soundcloud.com/chantal-phillips/guided-meditation-grounding

 

Wednesday January 31st is a VERY high-energy day when we experience a Super Blood Blue Moon eclipse! It’s called a Super Moon when the Full Moon occurs at the time when the Moon is at its closest approach to the Earth, and a Blue Moon refers to the event of a second Full Moon occurring within the same month. The Blood Moon refers to the reddish hue that the Moon takes during a lunar eclipse. The combination of these events is very rare, and the last time this occurred was over 150 years ago. Although the “blue” and “blood” terms sound interesting, these have no significance energetically. However, the effect of the Super Moon and the eclipse definitely do!

Regardless of whether or not the eclipse is visible from where you live, the energetic effects will be experienced just the same. If you live in Hong Kong, where we will be able to see a total lunar eclipse, you can click on the following link for details of the exact timing of it: https://www.timeanddate.com/eclipse/in/hong-kong/hong-kong  No matter where you live, you can you this site to find out information for your area.

The effect of the Super Moon plus the lunar eclipse greatly multiplies the energetic effects of the Full Moon. It is even said that these effects can last for months ahead! Any Full Moon is a good time for “taking stock” and reflecting upon how your life has been flowing since the last Full Moon, as well as seeing what changes or adjustments need to made in order to create a more harmonious flow. However, this Full Moon in Leo places special emphasis on the areas of leadership, enjoying life, vitality, playfulness (letting your inner child out!), letting your talents and abilities shine, as well as appropriate risk-taking. What changes or adjustments can you make in these areas?

A I talked about in yesterday’s forecast, it is very important to keep yourself grounded, otherwise the intense energy we are experiencing could result in you feeling agitated, easily “triggered” or prone to over-reacting. You want to be able to make the most of this very special energy, and being balanced and grounded are the keys to this.

This energy of this Super Full Moon/lunar eclipse combination is also very powerful and supportive in the area of healing (especially healing old emotional wounds), as well as in releasing any blockages/obstacles related to abundance. Remember that stubborn blockages and any emotions being triggered or pushed to the surface are clear indicators of what needs to be faced, healed and released in order to move forward in life. Rather than see these as hindrances, see the opportunity take charge of the situation and consciously create a state of transformation.

Committed partnerships and other significant relationships are also highlighted at this time. Reflect upon them and recognise which ones are empowering, supportive, loving and thereby deserving of more of your energy and time… and which ones are draining, negative and toxic. Seriously consider either minimising your time with these people or completely releasing the relationship(s). The people you surround yourself with have a clear impact on your personal energy and well-being, and the process of personal growth and transformation can be hindered or empowered, depending on your choice of relationships.

This is a potent time for spiritual and personal growth, so use the energy to assist you in this process by taking positive action in the areas mentioned above.

A great 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, weather permitting) and send Reiki to it. Sit quietly and comfortably and then use the Reiki 2 technique of ‘Beaming’, with the hands ‘aimed’ at the Moon. Of course, you could also use any other method of Distance Reiki which you may prefer. In this way, you can tap directly into these lunar energies (this is both fun and wonderful).

Get together with friends to experience the special energy and to view the lunar eclipse! You can do a group meditation, or even just enjoy an evening of observing the Moon. Appreciate the Moon, and feel a sense of gratitude for the beauty of nature, and the love from those around us.

 

Thursday February 1st is a high-energy day when we will still be feeling the effects of yesterday’s Super Full Moon and lunar eclipse, although not as intensely. Expect strong energy and a continuation of yesterday’s themes.

 

Friday February 2nd we can expect a positive flow of energy, especially in the areas of friendships and work/community relationships. Group projects get a boost, but be aware of expressing yourself as well as listening to the ideas of others.

 

Saturday February 3rd the energy will be active, bright and very conducive to socialising and enjoyment… just remember not to overdo things!

 

Sunday February 4th we finish the week with a day of easy-going, relaxed energy. After the very powerful energy we experienced earlier in the week, today is a good one for “going with the flow” and allowing yourself to recharge and rebalance.

 

Wishing all of you a wonderful week ahead and a magical Super Full Moon!

Many blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast, Jan. 22nd – 28th 2018

Hello Everyone,

The themes of making plans, having goals and taking strategic action continue this week. We also have some great opportunities for increasing the flow of prosperity and abundance, made even more effective through the use of visualisation and energy techniques. Remember that next Wednesday we will experience the rare and powerful Super Blue Blood Moon Eclipse! I will post full details on this event and how to make the most of it in my Forecast for next week, but the combination of the Full Moon, total lunar eclipse (which is why the Moon will be tinged red and earns it the name “blood Moon”), and it being a Super Moon (the Moon will be at its closest approach to the Earth) will greatly amplify the energy and its influences. An event like this hasn’t happened since 1866, so it’s really something to look forward to! For now, let’s take a detailed look at the energy coming up this week and how we can make the most of it:

Monday January 22nd we begin the week with a day of energy focused on making decisions and then taking the appropriate action based upon these. Whether these decisions are big or small isn’t what matters, what matters is to stop over-analysing or delaying the decision-making process. When we get stuck by “over-thinking” and not taking action, the energy around us begins to stagnate, which then greatly limits the potential for growth. Don’t let yourself get stuck in this type of situation, so use today’s energy to get things moving.

 

Tuesday January 23rd the energy will be rather gentle, so it isn’t one for lots of activity or trying to accomplish many tasks (save it for tomorrow and Thursday when the energy will be very active). If you find yourself feeling agitated or restless, take a few minutes for a grounding activity. Today’s energy is, however, very supportive of spiritual and/or energy practises (Reiki, yoga etc.). Take time for whichever practise you prefer and you may be pleasantly surprised at how much “deeper” or more meaningful the experience is.

 

Wednesday January 24th we have the start of a 2-day cycle of active, positive energy that is all about increasing the flow of abundance and prosperity into your life, practical thinking and strategy-making, as well as opening the mind to new ideas and experiences. In working with the energy to increase the flow of wealth and abundance, set aside time to “brainstorm” and create strategies for your work or personal projects that can empower this process. It’s also a good idea to take time for visualisation/intention exercises related to your prosperity/abundance goals. 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. In working with the area of personal transformation through new ideas and experiences, think about a subject or area that you have wanted to investigate but haven’t yet done so… now is a great time to make a start. Or perhaps there is something that you have wanted to try (an activity, attending an event etc.), now is the time to go for it and enjoy yourself!

 

Thursday January 25th we experience the second of the 2-day cycle of active, positive energy. Please see the Wednesday forecast for details of how to use today’s energy for your highest good.

 

Friday January 26th you may be itching for more freedom and independence, but it’s important not to make any rash decisions or moves. Ground yourself so that you can better control your energy and think more clearly. Consider whether or not your situation can be improved through better communication and teamwork skills, rather than trying to accomplish everything alone.

 

Saturday January 27th the energy will be relaxed and focused on relationships with family and loved ones. How about planning an enjoyable activity? Whatever you choose to do today, don’t make it too strenuous as it’s all about relaxation, enjoyment and “going with the flow”. If you have a lot that you would like to accomplish this weekend, it’s a better idea to leave things until tomorrow when the energy will be very active.

 

Sunday January 28th 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 (2+8+1+2+0+1+8= 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.

In addition to this “Master Energy”, the intuition will be especially strong today and there is great support for creative projects and expression.

 

Wishing all of you a positive and productive week ahead!

Many blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast, Jan. 15th – 21st 2018

Hello Everyone,

This week we can expect good opportunities for change and growth, but as with last week it is important to stay focused and ground your energy in order to make the most of the energy. The big highlights to look forward to this week include the Capricorn New Moon on Wednesday and the first “Master Energy” day of the year on Friday. So now let’s take a detailed look at what to expect throughout the week:


Monday January 15th is the last of a 3-day cycle when the intuition will be especially strong and the following areas get a BIG boost of supportive energy: relationships, creativity and healing. Business relationships get lots of positive support, creativity should be flowing strongly and there are great opportunities for healing (both self-healing and healing relationship issues). Remember to actively and consciously use the energy so that you can get the most out of it! Listen to your intuition, pay attention to any “gut instincts”, don’t be afraid to express bold or innovative ideas, and be on the look-out for potential opportunities to serve others through doing what you love.

For Reiki (or other energy-healing) practitioners, take time for a full self-treatment (or, if preferred, arrange to receive healing from a practitioner). Much can be healed and released during this time!

As the energy can be quite strong over this 3-day cycle, be aware that it can also highlight imbalances or cause some challenges to arise. You can deal with any problems by being flexible, open to change (“just going with the flow, whatever is happening”), grounding yourself (see last week’s Friday forecast for suggestions on this), and remembering that by seeing our imbalances highlighted we are then able to deal with them.

 

Tuesday January 16th we can expect a nice flow of energy supporting the areas of growth and transformation. This energy will be light and positive, so it’s great for supporting any aspects of growth and change that you may have been working on during the 3-day energy cycle that finished yesterday. Depending upon where you live (e.g. Canada, the US), you may also experience the New Moon today. In this case, please see tomorrow’s forecast for details on the New Moon energy and how to make use it.

 

Wednesday January 17th is a high-energy day when we experience the New Moon in Capricorn. Any New Moon is an ideal time for new beginnings and fresh starts, but the influence of Capricorn (which is ruled by the Earth element) places extra emphasis on being grounded and taking action in a responsible, strategic and responsible manner. What goals are you currently working on? This New Moon encourages us to approach these goals in a strategic manner, rather than making rushed decisions, being impatient or wasting energy by forcing any issues. If you don’t actually have any clear goals at the moment, then it is VERY important that you create some! Whether these goals are long or short-term, they are very necessary in order to focus your energy, intention and attention.

A good way to connect with the energy today is through meditation. You can do your own, choose to meditate on new beginnings, 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.

You can also use this New Moon energy by working on manifesting your goals through visualisation/intention techniques or Reiki 2 affirmations, 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.

In addition to the Capricorn New Moon energies, there will be plenty of additional energy supporting creative projects (and creativity in general), as well as romantic relationships. In these areas, apply the Capricorn New Moon energy by making plans, having a clear vision and staying grounded in your approach. Be clear-headed, rather than being swept away by the passionate energy!

 

Thursday January 18th relationships will be highlighted. If any conflicts arise (either within yourself or with your partner), it’s important to stay grounded and communicate clearly, honestly and from the heart. Pay attention to your “gut instinct”, and don’t be afraid to examine and explore any fears. In this way, issues can be healed and released, and you can gain a lot of clarity and insight into your situation.

 

Friday January 19th is a very high-energy day when we experience the first “22” Master Energy day of the New Year. 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+2+0+1+8= 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.

 

Saturday January 20th unless you’ve been staying grounded, the active energy we’ve experienced this week may cause you to feel quite agitated or overly-sensitive today. Be aware of your interactions with others, and take time out to be by yourself (relax and enjoy the time!) if you’re feeling overwhelmed or overly-sensitive. Whatever you’re feeling, today isn’t one for lots of activity. It’s a good idea to just take it easy and “go with the flow”.

 

Sunday January 21st the energy will be lighter and more active than yesterday’s. Today is a good one for creative or adventurous activities, trying new things, mental clarity and optimism. So we should expect to finish the week on a positive note!

 

Wishing all of you a great week ahead!

Many blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast, Jan. 8th – 14th 2018

Hello Everyone,

We have an interesting week ahead with some great opportunities for transformation in the areas of relationships, finances and healing. The highlight of the week is a special 3-day cycle of energy that begins on Saturday and finishes next Monday. Remember that you need to actively work with the energy in order to get the benefits! As the energy will be rather active for most of the week, it’s a good idea to start every day with a grounding exercise or practise so that you can stay focused and on-track. In my Friday forecast, I give suggestions on how to ground yourself. With that, let’s take a detailed look at the week ahead and what to expect:


Monday January 8th we begin the week with strong, active, positive energy. You can get the most out of this energy by channelling it into the following areas: leadership, business ventures, creative projects and relationships. Physical vitality gets a boost, too. As this energy is so active, make sure that you use the energy (keep busy, but don’t overload yourself) otherwise you may feel restless or agitated.

 

Tuesday January 9th the energy will be focused mainly in the areas of transformation. Finances and creativity. This aspect of transformation applies to how you behave and react within your relationships. Reflect upon how you communicate: is it with clarity? With honesty and compassion? With the ability to listen patiently and without judgement? If you problems with any of these (or other) areas, it’s time to actively work on them so that you can bring a state of positive transformation to all of your relationships.

With regards to finances, be on the look-out for ideas and opportunities to grow your business. You can also work on the flow of wealth into your life through positive and active visualisation. Sit quietly and visualise 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 related to finances.

Creative expression and projects also get a big boost of energy today, so make the most of it!

 

Wednesday January 10th we can expect lots of positive energy supporting the areas creativity and harmonious communication. Additionally, business relationships (especially those related to, or in, the creative field) can be strengthened today. As the aspect of harmonious communication is supported today, it’s a good time to continue actively working on your communication skills.

 

Thursday January 11th offers good opportunities for beneficial teamwork, but the key is good communication. Be open to other people’s ideas and suggestions, express yourself clearly and in a positive way, and avoid arguments. Today is also especially good for increasing your finances, so as with yesterday you should be aware of new business opportunities as well as setting aside time to work on any visualisations or Reiki affirmations concerning this area.

 

Friday January 12th the energy may be a bit challenging today, causing a feeling of restlessness, being unfocused or even agitated. If you experience this, it’s important to “ground” your energy through any of the following ways:

Any sort of “grounding” or “earthing” practise. Here is the link to an article I’ve written on this subject with includes suggestions for different practises to suit everyone: http://www.healingfire.com/tips-for-grounding/ A “grounding” meditation can also be very helpful, so do any that you may prefer. You are also welcome to try my free guided meditation for “grounding and energising”. It only takes 10 minutes, so it’s quite convenient: https://soundcloud.com/chantal-phillips/guided-meditation-grounding If you’re a Reiki practitioner, you can make the meditation even more effective by placing the hands over the 1st chakra while you listen.

 

Saturday January 13th is the first of a 3-day cycle when the intuition will be especially strong and the following areas get a BIG boost of supportive energy: relationships, creativity and healing. Business relationships get lots of positive support, creativity should be flowing strongly and there are great opportunities for healing (both self-healing and healing relationship issues). Remember to actively and consciously use the energy so that you can get the most out of it! Listen to your intuition, pay attention to any “gut instincts”, don’t be afraid to express bold or innovative ideas, and be on the look-out for potential opportunities to serve others through doing what you love.

For Reiki (or other energy-healing) practitioners, take time every day over the next three days for a full self-treatment (or, if preferred, arrange to receive healing from a practitioner). Much can be healed and released during this time!

As the energy can be quite strong over this 3-day cycle, be aware that it can also highlight imbalances or cause some challenges to arise. You can deal with any problems by being flexible, open to change (“just going with the flow, whatever is happening”), grounding yourself (see my Friday forecast for suggestions on this), and remembering that by seeing our imbalances highlighted we are then able to deal with them.

 

Sunday January 14th is the second day of the special 3-day cycle of energy mentioned above. As discussed, actively and consciously use the energy in order to benefit from it.

 

Wishing all of you a positive and productive week ahead!

Many blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast, Jan. 2nd – 7th 2018

Hello Everyone,

Happy New Year! After starting 2018 on such a powerful note, the closest Super Moon of the year, plus Uranus turning “direct” after being retrograde for the past five months, the rest of the week gives us good opportunities for creating strategies for the year as well as bringing more harmony and balance to relationships. Overall, we should have a week of light and bright energy to look forward to! So now let’s take a detailed look at what we can expect this week and how to best use the energy:


Tuesday January 2nd things got REALLY powerful with the Super Full Moon. I’ve already posted separately about this, but I also wanted to mention that today we also experienced Uranus turning “direct” after being retrograde since August 3rd. During a period of Uranus in retrograde, an 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 found yourself experiencing this, it was advisable to examine the situation carefully and then create a clear strategy for breaking free and moving forward. However, it is better to wait until Uranus turns “direct” again before actually putting the plan into action. So now is the time to take action!

Remember that the influence of Uranus also encourages us to listen to our intuition and “walk our talk”, as well as supporting us in using our talents in a way that brings us (and others) joy and fulfilment. If you’ve been experiencing difficulties in these areas, it’s a clear indication that some big changes need to be made. Now is the time to let go of what no longer serves your higher purpose in order to stride into 2018 with purpose and power.

 

Wednesday January 3rd is a high-energy day the intuition will be especially strong and we are supported in creating strategies for increasing the flow of prosperity and abundance into our lives. Listen to your “gut instinct” and pay attention to any flashes of inspiration: unconventional approaches are the ones that should pay off in your strategy making. This is also very useful in creating your plans and goals for 2018 with regards to abundance/prosperity.

 

Thursday January 4th the emphasis is on relationships, specifically creating a state of greater harmony and balance within partnerships. Remember the importance of speaking from the heart with compassion as well as listening with compassion, too! It’s a good idea to prepare yourself for this kind of communication by taking a few minutes to focus on the heart chakra, breathing deeply and evenly while visualising a ball of brilliant white light in the centre of the chest. If you are a Reiki (or other energy) practitioner, try applying energy to the heart chakra area for approximately 10-15 minutes.

 

Friday January 5th we can expect a day of light, bright energy. Although it isn’t a day for taking on too many tasks, it’s definitely one for taking action with enthusiasm and optimism!

 

Saturday January 6th is an active, high-energy day with lots of support in the areas of spirituality and spiritual practises, leadership, working towards a higher cause, research and working together with like-minded people. There are so many possibilities with this energy, so choose your favourite area to focus on and then go for it. If you don’t actively use the energy today, you may find yourself feeling restless or agitated, so make sure you use the energy in the most beneficial way for yourself.

 

Sunday January 7th we finish the week with a day of energy focused on relationships, especially romantic partnerships. The energy day has a “sweet” quality to it, so enjoy the day with those you love!

 

Wishing all of you a wonderful week ahead!

Many blessings,

Chantal
