This week we will still be experiencing the special 2-week cycle of energy that I wrote about in last week’s Forecast, focusing on female (“Yin”) energy as well as increasing the flow of abundance/prosperity into your life. In addition to this, the highlights this week include the Scorpio Full Moon on Monday and a “Master Energy” day on Sunday. Although the energy will be very active, it should be positive and productive rather than stressful or frantic. If you find yourself feeling overwhelmed or “all over the place”, take time for a grounding exercise. If you are a Reiki practitioner, you can apply Reiki to the first chakra, legs and feet. Here is the link to read an article I have written about grounding and different techniques that anyone can use in order to achieve it: http://www.healingfire.com/tips-for-grounding/ So now let’s take a detailed look at the week ahead and how to make the best use of the energy:
Monday April 30th we start the week with a high-energy day as we experience the Full Moon in Scorpio. 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 Scorpio places extra emphasis on the areas of personal transformation, healing the “shadow self”, delving deeper, research, intimacy and sexuality. Reflect upon what changes or adjustments need to made in order to create more harmony in these areas.
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.
In addition to the Full Moon aspects mentioned earlier, today there is also great support for all of your Full Moon intentions, so make your goals and intentions clear and then focus on making them a reality!
Tuesday May 1st we can expect lots of strong energy supporting us in increasing the flow of abundance/prosperity, but it may be time to make some adjustments to both your approach and attitude. Perhaps you need to re-think your attitude towards money, or it could be that you need to start being bolder and more proactive in manifesting abundance/prosperity. It’s an ideal time to work on your manifesting techniques, whether it’s Reiki affirmations, Law of Attraction or another form of manifesting. The key to this is consistency. By using your preferred method of manifesting daily (for at least 10-15 minutes), you are much more likely to see tangible results.
Wednesday May 2nd the energy will be focused more on the emotional side, so may you find yourself feeling more sensitive than usual, or perhaps your may find that your actions are being motivated by your current emotional state. You may choose to work with this energy by exploring your emotions and motivations more deeply. However, if your actions are being guided by unbalanced emotions, it’s time to take a step back in order to rebalance and “ground” yourself.
Thursday May 3rd the intuition will be stronger than usual and we can expect good opportunities for receiving “flashes” of inspiration and guidance. I recommend starting the day with meditation (even just 5-10 minutes) so that you are better able to receive intuitive guidance throughout the day. Remember to pay attention to your “gut instinct” as well as other forms of guidance today.
Friday May 4th is a high-energy day when we experience the peak of the 2-week cycle of energy focusing on two areas: female assertiveness and increasing the flow of abundance/prosperity into your life. This peak occurs today and tomorrow, but today the emphasis is on working with female (“Yin”) energy. With regards to female assertiveness, think of it in terms of tapping more fully into “Yin” energy and then expressing this. It may be that you need to make some changes or adjustments in your attitudes and/or actions or perhaps you may choose to use this “Yin” energy by doing more strategic thinking and planning. Practical creativity is also an aspect of this energy which you may choose to express.
Saturday May 5th the peak of the 2-week cycle of energy mentioned above is focused today on increasing the flow of abundance/prosperity into your life. With regards to increasing the flow of abundance/prosperity, it’s time to make some adjustments to both your approach and attitude. As I wrote in Tuesday’s forecast, perhaps you need to re-think your attitude towards money, or it could be that you need to start being bolder and more proactive in manifesting abundance/prosperity. It’s an ideal time to work on your manifesting techniques, whether it’s Reiki affirmations, Law of Attraction or another form of manifesting. The key to this is consistency. By using your preferred method of manifesting daily (for at least 10-15 minutes), you are much more likely to see tangible results.
Sunday May 6th the week finishes on a “high note”. According to numerology this day has special energetic significance because the numbers of today’s date add up to the “Master Number” of 22 (6+5+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 use this opportunity! 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 productive and empowering week ahead!
