Weekly Forecast, Aug. 27th – Sept. 2nd 2018

Hello Everyone,

We have lots of active energy coming up this week, so if you actively work with it there is great potential for growth. Yes, this can also be challenging, but it is also very rewarding! If you feel yourself getting overwhelmed, take time to re-balance and recharge: go for a walk in nature (breathing deeply and being conscious of your surroundings), meditate, do a Reiki (or other energy) self-treatment or receive a treatment from a practitioner, do a yoga or taichi session… whatever your favourite practise is! The highlights of the week include Mars turning “direct” on Monday, after being retrograde since the end of June, plus two “Master Energy” days coming up. With that, let’s take a detailed look at the week ahead and how to make the most of the energy:

Monday August 27th the week with a high-energy day when we experience Mars turning “direct” after being retrograde since June 26th. The time of Mars retrograde was all about reflecting on the areas of leadership, entrepreneurship, assertiveness and sexuality, and bringing positive changes, balance and empowerment to these areas. It was a great time to ask yourself the following questions: Am I being an effective leader? Am I expressing myself with a calm strength or with aggression? Am I listening as well as leading? Are the expressions of my creative and personal energy positive and empowering to myself and others? With this in mind, it’s time to take action on any insights, ideas and strategies that have come to you over the past two months regarding the answers these questions.

In addition to this Mars “direct” energy, today there is also plenty of energy supporting the areas of inspiration, leadership, productivity and overall abundance. A great start to the week!

 

Tuesday August 28th is a high-energy day with the focus on learning and communication. There is also great potential today in sharing your experiences, ideas and wisdom in order to assist others in their process of transformation, just make sure that you express yourself in the most positive and empowering manner possible. In addition to this theme of communication, the energy today is also very supportive for healing practises, especially when working on healing and releasing old, unresolved emotional wounds. If you are a Reiki (or other healing energy) practitioner, take time for a self-treatment or arrange to receive a treatment from a practitioner, as you can achieve better-than-usual results today. If you’ve already been working on your healing process, then perhaps today you can use your abilities to assist others in their healing.

 

Wednesday August 29th the energy will be flowing a bit more gently today, and we can expect to experience a continuation of yesterday’s energy and themes. Please refer to yesterday’s forecast for information on how to best use the energy today.

 

Thursday August 30th is 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 (3+0+8+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, 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”, there is additional focus on three areas: finances, creativity and relationships. Be aware that this energy can be either supportive or challenging, depending on the state of balance of the area(s) concerned. If you are experiencing challenges, it’s time to focus on taking a more mature and responsible approach. In this case, good planning and having clear goals will be very helpful.

 

Friday August 31st is a high-energy day that marks the beginning of a 6-week cycle of energy focused on creating big changes in relationships and creative expression. Regarding relationships, any areas of disharmony and/or imbalance will be highlighted, so this energy cycle can be taken in two ways: you can use this energy cycle as an opportunity to communicate and resolve issues, thereby making the relationship much more balanced, healthy and fufilling… or you can suppress or avoid the issues, leading to further disharmony and (quite likely) a toxic state of the relationship. It should be quite clear that the first option is the healthy and positive one. Yes, it can be difficult dealing with issues, but no matter how challenging, the results are very much worth it! Listen to your intuition and allow it to guide you through this process, and remember to communicate honestly, openly and compassionately. One more thing, remember to listen, too!

Regarding creative expression, be open to new methods and directions that you may have never considered before. It’s a wonderful time to be bold and adventurous in your creativity, so open yourself to this energy and really go for it!

 

Saturday September 1st the new month begins potentially challenging energy in terms of decision-making and clear-thinking. If possible, avoid making important decisions today (especially where the emotions are involved) and focus instead on current tasks. However, today is very supportive of spiritual practises, so make sure to take time for your favoured practise. There is great potential for receiving guidance, so take time for meditation so that you are better able to receive this throughout the day.

 

Sunday September 2nd 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+9+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, 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”, there is additional focus on learning, experiencing and communicating. This energy is bright and inspired, so why not try a new activity or visit a new place? Ideally, share this active energy with like-minded friends or loved ones.

 

Wishing all of you a positive and inspired week ahead!

Many blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast Aug. 20th – 26th 2018

Hello Everyone,

This week we have an interesting mix of energy. There are good opportunities for sorting out practical aspects and issues, as well as opportunities for healing and spiritual growth. The highlights of the week include a “Master Energy” day on Tuesday and the Full Moon in Pisces on Sunday. So let’s take a detailed look at the week ahead, what to expect and how to make the most of the energy:

Monday August 20th the week begins with a day of energy focused on two areas: areas needing healing being highlighted, and sorting out financial issues. Regarding healing, pay attention to any people or events that “press your buttons” (especially any relationship difficulties). The root cause of your reaction indicates what issue(s) need healing/releasing. Remember that any challenges indicate areas that need to be healed so that we may experience further personal and spiritual growth. Regarding finances, pay attention to any money matters that require your attention. It could be that you need to exercise better self-discipline in this area, or it may be that you can benefit from seeking the advice of others who are knowledgeable in this area.

 

Tuesday August 21st 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+1+8+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, 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”, today marks the beginning of a 5-week cycle of energy focused on creating strategies, practical action, practical creativity and listening to your intuition related to these areas. One word of warning: today’s intense energy can cause one to feel agitated or easily-angered when one’s energy isn’t balanced or grounded, or if one isn’t actively using the energy. To avoid this, make sure that you are balanced, and make sure to use the energy in a positive way. Stay active and focus on keeping a positive attitude!

 

Wednesday August 22nd we can expect the energy to be active, with a continuation of yesterday’s theme of consciously using this energy in positive ways. Any activities that serve your highest good as well as the good of others are especially supported.

 

Thursday August 23rd the energy today has the potential to be quite mixed. One one hand, there is potential for problems and misunderstandings with communication, so make sure that you express yourself clearly and also make sure that you understand others clearly (listen and ask questions, rather than making assumptions or jumping to conclusions). On the other hand, there is also great potential today in sharing your experiences, ideas and wisdom in order to assist others in their process of transformation. So the key here is being conscious of communicating in the most positive and empowering manner. In addition to this theme of communication, the energy today is also very supportive for healing practises. If you are a Reiki (or other healing energy) practitioner, take time for a self-treatment or arrange to receive a treatment from a practitioner, as you can achieve better-than-usual results today!

 

Friday August 24th the areas of creativity and inspiration and empowered today. Whether it’s in your personal and professional life (or both!), it’s time to express yourself creatively. Listen to your inner-voice and allow it to guide you in doing so.

 

Saturday August 25th is a high-energy day when the intuition will be stronger than usual and the energy harmonious and supportive in the areas of bringing balance to work/life, taking care of practical issues, and feeling inspired and energised in your spiritual practises. Allow yourself to be guided by your intuition in all of these areas. I recommend starting the day with meditation so that you are better able to receive intuitive guidance and inspiration throughout the day.

 

Sunday August 26th we finish the week with a high-energy day as we experience the Full Moon in Pisces. 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 Pisces places extra emphasis on releasing, changing or making adjustments in the areas of creativity, spiritual practises and dream work in order to bring about a greater state of harmony and empowerment. The intuition will be especially strong today, so pay attention to your inner-voice and allow it to guide you in working on the areas mentioned. Remember that we are still experiencing grounded, feminine energy, so this can assist you in creating strategies and putting your Full Moon goals into action!

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.

 

Wishing all of you a positive and empowered week ahead!

Many blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast, Aug. 13th – 19th 2018

Hello Everyone,

This week we can expect the energy to be more relaxed, especially when compared with the very intense energy that we’ve been experiencing over the past few weeks. We can look forward to a 2-week cycle of energy focused on healing as well as increasing the flow of prosperity. The highlight of the week sees Mercury turning “direct” on Sunday, so things should start moving ahead more smoothly. 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 August 13th we begin the week with a day focused on two areas: healing and releasing old emotional hurts and traumas, and increasing the flow of wealth into your life. This particular “theme” or energy cycle will last until the beginning of September. The intense energy we have been experiencing recently has the effect of pushing old, unresolved issues to the surface so that they can be healed/released. If you feel that this is the case for you, make sure to take time for reflection and healing. If you are a Reiki (or other healing energy) practitioner, doing extra self-treatments (or receiving treatments from a practitioner) will produce great results. Regarding increasing wealth, reflect upon what practical adjustments, changes or actions you can take in order to do so. Ground and focus your energy and intentions! You can assist this process through daily, positive intention/visualisation. If you are a Reiki 2 (or above) practitioner, or practising other techniques such as Law of Attraction, set aside at least 10-15 minutes every day to work on any Reiki affirmations (or other methods of attracting and manifesting wealth).

 

Tuesday August 14th we can expect a continuation of the energy that we experienced yesterday. Make time for healing and releasing, and/or putting energy into increasing the flow of prosperity into your life.

 

Wednesday August 15th the energy will be strongly “Yin”, or feminine. Yin energy is all about feminine assertiveness (regardless of whether you’re male or female, all of us have a combination of Yin and Yang energy). Focus on the areas of strategic thinking and plans, as well as practical creativity. Think about what changes or adjustments you need to make in order to fully use this energy to your advantage.

 

Thursday August 16th is a high-energy day with great potential in gaining new insights and experiences related to the intense energy that we have been experiencing over the past few weeks. This energy also supports us in smoothly adjusting to any changes that have recently arisen. Today’s strong energy can also bring a lot of passion into relationships, but be aware that it can also cause tension and negative behaviour in relationships that aren’t balanced. Pay attention to your words and actions so that you avoid saying or doing something that you may regret, and communicate clearly, patiently and kindly.

 

Friday August 17th we can expect positive, flowing energy today. The imagination is stimulated, making it a great day for artistic activities and creative expression. The intuition will also be stronger than usual, so pay attention to your “gut instinct” or any “signs”. 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.

 

Saturday August 18th we can expect another day of positive, flowing energy. It’s a great day for creative activities and expression, as well as higher learning. Be mindful of being light today in your actions and attitude: be flexible, light-hearted and understanding towards others.

 

Sunday August 19th is a high-energy day when we experience Mercury turning “direct” after being retrograde since July 26th. It’s time to move forward with any new ventures that you may have put on hold during the retrograde period (including contract signings and major purchases). As for any insights you may have gained over the past three weeks related to efficiency, responsibilities and good time management… it’s time to put these into action, too!

 

Wishing all of you positive and more relaxed week ahead!

Many blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast, August 6th – 12th 2018

Hello Everyone,

This week we have some active, fiery energy to look forward to, so there is great potential for taking action and creating some positive changes. However, it is important to USE the energy well, otherwise you may find yourself feeling restless or agitated. If you find yourself feeling this way, take a step back and re-balance. Think of how you have been using the energy (or not!) and where you can channel it so that it benefits you. The big highlights this week include Uranus turning retrograde on Tuesday, a New Moon in Leo on Saturday and a Master Energy day on Sunday. So let’s take a detailed look at what to expect and how to best use the energy:


Monday August 6th we start the week with some bright, active energy. It’s a good day to get lots done, but just make sure that you don’t overdo it. It’s also a good day for taking the lead as well as taking part in enjoyable activities.

 

Tuesday August 7th we have some interesting energy today, with Uranus turning retrograde until the beginning of January 2019. 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, it is better to wait until Uranus turns “direct” again before actually putting the plan into action.

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. The areas most affected by this are finances (and how we manage these), personal assertiveness and our connection to nature and the Earth. 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.

In addition to this Uranus retrograde energy, today there is great support in deepening committed relationships, creative expression and financial opportunities.

 

Wednesday August 8th is a high-energy day when we experience the peak of the energy-cycle that started in mid-July, focused on creating balance within committed relationships. During this cycle (which ends in mid-August), take time to reflect upon the state of balance within your committed partnership: is there equal give and take or do you find yourself giving away too much of your energy? Of course, it’s normal for this to fluctuate, but think about the overall state. If you notice or feel that you are giving away too much of your power, it’s time to address this. By communicating clearly and openly with your partner, the two of you can then work together to create a balanced relationship that is empowering for both sides.

Today, the energy is also very empowering for creative expression and spiritual practises.

 

Thursday August 9th is a high-energy day with the focus on three areas: finances, creativity and relationships. The intuition will be especially strong today, so listen to your inner-voice or “gut instinct” and allow it to guide you in the areas mentioned earlier. Be aware that this energy can be either supportive or challenging, depending on the state of balance of the area(s) concerned. If you are experiencing challenges, it’s time to focus on taking a more mature and responsible approach. In this case, good planning and having clear goals will be very helpful.

 

Friday August 10th the focus is strongly on the area of communication within committed partnerships, whether business or romantic. By communicating clearly and carefully, there is great potential to clear any issues and bring about a state of harmony.

 

Saturday August 11th is a VERY high-energy day when we experience the New Moon in Leo. Any New Moon is a good time for fresh starts, new beginnings and taking action, but the influence of Leo places extra emphasis on the areas of leadership, enjoyment, playfulness and creative expression. Ask yourself how you can embrace these aspects more fully in your life, and then take action! Remember that Leo is ruled by the “fire” element, so it’s important to use this active energy in a positive way, otherwise you may find yourself feeling agitated or restless. There is great potential in the energy today, and to more fully connect with it you may want to try doing a special meditation. You can do your own meditation, or choose to meditate on the themes associated with this Leo New Moon, 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 preferred method of Distance Reiki to send Reiki to the Moon. In this way, you can tap directly into these lunar energies.

Bear in mind that today there will also be an annular Solar Eclipse occurring. Although it will only be visible from the northernmost parts of the Earth, the energetic effect is said to felt everywhere regardless of visibility. This, combined with the New Moon energy makes for a very powerful day indeed!

 

Sunday August 12th the week finishes 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+2+8+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, 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
