Weekly Forecast, March 26th – April 1st 2018

Hello Everyone,

This week we have some positive, active days to look forward to. The first is a “Master Energy” day on Monday, but the big highlight of the week is the Full Moon in Libra on Saturday. Overall, it should be a positive week with good potential for inspiration and productivity, but be aware of the importance of balancing and grounding your energy if you find yourself feeling overly-sensitive or moody. With that, let’s take a detailed look at the energy this week, what to expect and how to make the most of it:

Monday March 26th we start 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+6+3+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.

 

Tuesday March 27th the emphasis is on committed partnerships (romantic, business, friendships etc.). Those that are balanced and serve your highest good are strengthened and deepened. However, the energy can also push one to release those relationships which no longer serve the highest good. If this is the case for you, you’ll notice that the relationship(s) in question will already be in a state of dissolving or “leaving” your life. Allow this process to happen… give thanks for the experiences and lessons learned, then let go.

 

Wednesday March 28th the intuition will be stronger than usual, so pay attention to it and allow it to guide you, especially in the areas of finances, relationships and creativity. It could be that you receive a “flash” of inspiration, or perhaps you have a “gut feeling” about someone or something. Whatever the case, pay attention and be prepared to take action: there is great potential for taking the areas mentioned earlier to the next level! I recommend starting the day with meditation (even just 5-10 minutes) so that you are better able to receive intuitive guidance and inspiration throughout the day.

 

Thursday March 29th we can look forward to some fiery, active energy. If you are facing any obstacles at the moment, make use of this energy to help overcome them. This strong energy is also very supportive of taking responsibility, mature behaviour and actions, time-management, as well as making plans and sticking to them.

 

Friday March 30th is a bit of a “rest day”. “Sandwiched” between yesterday’s fiery energy and tomorrow’s Full Moon, today is best-suited to just “going with the flow” as much as possible. Listen to your body, don’t push yourself too hard, and save the activities for tomorrow.

 

Saturday March 31st we finish the month with a high-energy day and the Full Moon in Libra. Any Full Moon is a good time to “take stock” of how you’ve been doing since the previous Full Moon, but the influence of Libra places extra emphasis on the areas of relationships and creative expression/projects. Ask yourself what adjustments need to be made or what needs to be released in these areas in order to create a stronger and more positive flow of energy. We can expect this Full Moon to be quite powerful, helping us to stay focused on whatever intentions we make at this time.

In addition to the influences mentioned above, this particular Full Moon is also very supportive in th areas of abundance (increasing the flow of it) and self-healing. Regarding abundance, take time for visualisations or intentions (please see Monday’s forecast for information about this). For self-healing, take time for a full Reiki self-treatment or any other healing/energy practise that you may enjoy.

To make the most of today’s Full Moon energy, try doing a special meditation. You can do your own meditation, or choose to meditate on all you have to be grateful for in your life, or you can do a Full Moon meditation in the following way:

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

If you are a Reiki 2 (or above) practitioner, you can sit quietly with the Moon in view (ideally outdoors) and send Reiki to it. Sit quietly and comfortably, prepare your hands for sending Reiki, and draw your 3 Reiki symbols over the Moon. You would then use the Reiki 2 technique of ‘Beaming’, with the hands ‘aimed’ at the Moon. In this way, you can tap directly into these lunar energies. Of course, you can use any method of sending Reiki by distance, so go with whatever you prefer.

 

Sunday April 1st we finish the week and start a new month! Today’s energy will be strong, as we will still be somewhat affected by yesterday’s Full Moon. However, be aware that this energy can cause one to feel overly-sensitive or moody. If you find this to be the case, take time to “ground” your energy. You can also utilise this energy by being active, ideally by taking part in outdoor activities. These activities needn’t be strenuous, even an enjoyable walk in the park will have a balancing and invigorating effect.

 

Wishing all of you a wonderful week ahead!

Many blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast, March 19th – 25th 2018

Hello Everyone,

We have some very powerful energy coming up this week, with the highlight being the Spring Equinox! The Spring Equinox will occur in Hong Kong on Wednesday just after midnight, but in North America, Europe and elsewhere it will occur on Tuesday (tomorrow). Please click on the following link and input your location so that you can find out the exact time of the Equinox for where you live: https://www.timeanddate.com/calendar/spring-equinox.html Over the course of Tuesday and Wednesday, we will experience this Equinox energy but it will peak at the exact time of this astronomical event in your location. The other big event this week happens on Thursday, when Mercury turns retrograde until mid-April. With so much going on, let’s take a detailed look at what to expect this week and how to make the best use of the energy:

Monday March 19th the week begins with a day of gentle, flowing energy. However, the energy will increase as the day goes on and we approach the time of the Spring Equinox.

 

Tuesday March 20th is a VERY high-energy day when we start to experience the two days of Spring Equinox energy. Regardless of where you live, in addition to the Equinox energy of rebirth (which I detail in tomorrow’s forecast) we will experience the following:

The strong energy can serve to bring challenging emotions or “triggers” to the surface. In this case, it’s an opportunity to examine how you react to people and situations. If you have a pattern of blaming others for how you feel or situations you find yourself in, it’s time for a fresh start: recognise that you,and only you, are responsible for how you react and how you feel. By thinking that others are responsible for any negative feelings you may have, you are giving your power away. Nobody has the power to make you feel a certain way unless you allow it to happen. Remember that not everyone reacts in the same way to the same circumstances… there is choice! Yes, it can be very difficult (and even painful!) to realise this, but when you get into the habit of examining your reactions and their roots (usually it’s fear, ego etc.), it becomes easier and easier to let go of negative feelings and blame. Use this time to regain your power, take control and walk through life with strength, grace, compassion and understanding. Look at the part that you play in your interactions with others and see the opportunity for lessons and growth. If you are dealing with any of these struggles at the moment, make sure you take time for healing (Reiki or other healing practise). If you have already done work in this area, then you may find yourself in the position of being able to assist others who are going through this challenging process.

Another aspect of this strong energy is that it can serve to “super-charge” any new starts (projects, goals, healthy habits etc.). Not only can it help you get thing started, in can help you to keep things going! Try to apply this to all areas of life: work, personal projects, personal growth and well-being. It’s also a great idea to get into the daily habit of working on your emotional well-being through practises that focus on the heart centre (heart chakra), such as applying Reiki to the heart chakra for 10-15 minutes or practising a meditation for the heart. You are welcome to check out my free, guided meditation for the heart chakra: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WK-zIQIv0I4

Leadership and assertiveness are also well-supported, as well as harmonious communication. Committed partnerships (romantic, business, friendships etc.) are also highlighted: those that are balanced and serve your highest good are strengthened and deepened. However, the energy can also push one to release those relationships which no longer serve the highest good. If this is the case for you, allow yourself to let go.

 

Wednesday March 21st is a VERY high-energy day when we experience the Spring Equinox in Hong Kong. In astrological terms, the Spring Equinox is one of the four most powerful points of the year along with the Solstice and is the time of rebirth and beginning anew. As this is seen as a powerful time of new beginnings, so you can mark this date in the following ways:

Honour the fire element (fire is purifying, as well as signifying change and transformation). Burn something that represents what you wish to release from the past few months or weeks, or perhaps something from your childhood or from your youth that represents very powerfully an identity of yours that is passed. This would also be a great time to identify something you are still attached to and then either symbolically or actually burn it. As you burn this/these items, give thanks for the lessons you have learned, for the person you have become… and joyfully release the old.

Look to this Spring Equinox as an opportunity to experience a time of intense power, strength and beauty. Much learning, shifting, healing and re-birthing can take place. If we are aware of this opportunity and create the sacred space and allow time to clearly receive, we can experience a general “re-booting” of our entire energetic systems!

Let the energy support you in starting something new, whether a new habit, relationship, project, or exploring something you’ve always wanted to do.

Bear in mind that the intense energy experienced yesterday and today can cause some people to feel “all over the place” or “ungrounded”. If you find this to be the case, take time for a grounding exercise, ideally in nature. Even something as simple as taking a walk in a park can have a grounding effect, or you can try my guided meditation for grounding: https://soundcloud.com/chantal-phillips/guided-meditation-grounding

 

Thursday March 22nd is a high-energy day when Mercury turns retrograde until April 15th. 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. Remember that it’s also a great time to make repairs and complete projects that have already been started.

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.

In addition to the energy of Mercury retrograde, today is also especially good for any manifesting exercises (Reiki affirmations, Law of Attraction etc.), so make sure you set aside at least 10-15 minutes for these, especially those relating to abundance and prosperity.

 

Friday March 23rd the energy will be focused in the areas of creative expression and romantic partnerships. If you are in a committed relationship, reflect upon the state of it: harmonious and balanced relationships get a great boost of energy today, whilst challenges may arise in relationships that are not balanced. If you think that the relationship can be transformed into a more positive one, discuss this with your partner and then work together in order to make it happen. If, on the other hand, you feel that the relationship is stagnating or has “run its course”, it’s time to let it go.

 

Saturday March 24th we can expect a day of vibrant, active energy. It’s a good idea to use the energy in a physical sense, otherwise you may end up feeling agitated or restless. It’s a great day for exercise, physical activity, taking action and taking the lead!

 

Sunday March 25th the week finishes on a “quieter” note. After so many days of active and powerful energy, today is a great one to relax and just “go with the flow”. If you feel like being active, go for it… but if you feel like just taking it easy, then allow yourself to do so.

 

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

Many blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast: March 12th – 18th 2018

Hello Everyone,

This week we can expect some good opportunities for healing, creative expression and strategy-making. The big highlight of the week occurs on Saturday when we will experience the New Moon in Pisces combined with a Master Energy day! Think about what new beginnings or “fresh starts” you would like to create, then use this powerful energy to make it happen. So now let’s take a detailed look at the week ahead, what to expect and how to make the most of the energy:


Monday March 12th the week starts with a day of strong “Yin”, or feminine, energy. Put this energy to good use through thinking strategically and by creating a solid and detailed plan of action for current goals and projects. You can also channel this energy into creative projects, especially those that have a practical purpose.

 

Tuesday March 13th we can look forward to a day of light and bright energy today. All activities receive a nice “boost” of energy, but this is especially true for spiritual practises and creative activities. The energy today is also good for creating better order and structure in any areas where you may be facing challenges, particularly in the area of finances. If any challenges do arise today, remember to stay calm and focused so that you can use the energy to create a more positive situation.

 

Wednesday March 14th the energy will be focused strongly in the areas of healing, guidance and teaching. If you are a Reiki (or other healing-energy) practitioner, make sure you take time for a full self-treatment as much as can be healed and released today. You may also consider receiving a treatment from a practitioner. The guidance and teaching aspect of today applies to any area, so be open to sharing your expertise with others in a helpful and considerate way.

 

Thursday March 15th we can expect a day of rather “low-key” energy. Rather than trying to accomplish many tasks today, it’s a good idea to continue work on existing projects and just “go with the flow” as much as possible.

 

Friday March 16th is a high-energy day when we experience the final day of the energy cycle (which began two weeks ago) focused primarily in the area of committed relationships, whether romantic, business, family or otherwise. The theme is healing, so it could be that someone close to you is offering assistance and support in your healing process or in overcoming current challenges, or perhaps someone close to you is serving as the motivation you need to deal with your old, emotional hurts so that they can be healed and released. Whatever the case, be receptive and open to resolving issues.

 

Saturday March 17th is a VERY high-energy day when we experience both a “Master Energy” day as well as the New Moon in Pisces. Any New Moon is a great time for new beginnings and fresh starts, but the influence of Pisces places special emphasis on the areas of inspired creativity, spiritual awakening and working with your dreams (keeping a dream journal and working with any recurring or powerful themes/messages, lucid dreaming etc.). However, be aware that there can be a “shadow” side to this energy: escapism, lack of focus/direction, and playing the “victim”. By being conscious of these “traps” and focusing on using the abundant energy in a positive and powerful way, you can avoid these pitfalls.

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

A great way to actively work with New Moon energy is by doing a special meditation. You can do your own meditation or you can do a New Moon meditation in the following ways:

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

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

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+3+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.

 

Sunday March 18th we end the week with the energy focused on the emotions. It can manifest in the form of feeling “softer” or more sentimental, or the energy can have the effect of bringing up unhealed emotional “hurts” from the past. If you find yourself being reminded of any old “hurts”, take time to reflect upon these and the lesson(s) involved, then allow yourself to forgive and release. If you are a Reiki practitioner, you can assist this healing and releasing process by keeping the hands in place over the heart chakra (in the middle of the chest).

 

Wishing all of you a positive and productive week ahead!

Many blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast, March 5th – 11th 2018

Hello Everyone,

This week we can expect the energy to be more settled, but the big highlight to look forward to occurs on Thursday when we will experience a combination of “Master” energy, Jupiter turning retrograde, and the peak of the energy cycle which began last week and is focused on the area of committed relationships, whether romantic, business, family or otherwise. Quite a powerful day with great potential, if you choose to use the energy to your advantage! So let’s take a detailed look at what to expect over the coming week, and how to best use the energy:

Monday March 5th we start the week with moderately active energy, so although it’s a good day to accomplish tasks, don’t overload yourself by taking on too much. The energy will be much stronger towards the end of this week, so any big projects or tasks are better left until then (if possible).

 

Tuesday March 6th the energy will be focused in the areas of communication and creative expression. If you have wanted to communicate about some important issues but have been holding yourself back, today is a great one for expressing yourself clearly and confidently. If you’re a Reiki practitioner, you can assist this process by applying Reiki to the throat chakra beforehand. Today, all forms of creative expression are strongly supported (especially creative writing), so take the time to let go and create!

 

Wednesday March 7th the energy today will be gentle and flowing, so it’s best-suited to working on current projects rather than starting new ones. Don’t push yourself too hard, and “go with the flow” as much as possible. However, tomorrow’s energy will be very powerful, so you may notice the energy increasing as the day goes on. As there is so much potential in tomorrow’s energy, it’s a good idea to take time to decide which area(s) you’d like to work with in order to make the most of it.

 

Thursday March 8th is a VERY high-energy day when we have a lot going on! Today we experience a powerful combination of “Master” Energy day, the peak of an energy cycle, plus Jupiter turning retrograde. Wow! Let’s look at each of these one at a time:

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+3+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.

Today we also experience the peak of an energy cycle (which began last week) focused primarily in the area of committed relationships, whether romantic, business, family or otherwise. The theme is healing, so it could be that someone close to you is offering assistance and support in your healing process or in overcoming current challenges, or perhaps someone close to you is serving as the motivation you need to deal with your old, emotional hurts so that they can be healed and released. Whatever the case, be receptive and open to resolving issues.

Regarding Jupiter, when it turns retrograde, the emphasis is placed upon awareness and inner-growth. This makes it an ideal time to reflect upon your spiritual beliefs, practises and personal philosophy. Are you being honest with yourself? Are you “all talk” or do you back up your beliefs with your actions? During the time of Jupiter retrograde, we can learn much about ourselves in this area and how we can live life with more integrity. It’s also a good time for foreign travel, new and enriching experiences and furthering one’s education. In terms of business, the greatest rewards will be experienced as a result of connections made and seeds planted in the past. Jupiter is also connected to celebration and enjoying life, so during this retrograde period it’s a good idea to reflect upon whether or not you are enjoying life enough (or perhaps too much/little!). Jupiter will turn “direct” in July, so we can expect to experience these themes until then.

 

Friday March 9th we will still be feeling some of the effects of yesterday’s very powerful energy, but today the focus is on creative expression and activities. It is also very possible that this energy can inspire you in new ways to generate more income as well as inspiring you with new ideas for bringing new, fresh energy into your committed relationships.

 

Saturday March 10th we can expect a day of gentle, flowing energy. Rather than trying to accomplish many tasks or planning something requiring lots of energy, it’s a good idea to “go with the flow” if possible. You may even take time to reflect upon the energy that we experienced on Thursday and how you would like to use it in the coming months.

 

Sunday March 11th we finish the week with a day of light, bright energy and stronger-than-usual intuition. I recommend starting the day with meditation (even just a few minutes!) so that you are better able to receive “flashes” of intuition and guidance throughout the day. Spiritual practises and creative activities are also well-supported today.

 

Wishing all of you a wonderful week ahead!

Many blessings,

Chantal
