Weekly Forecast, Oct. 29th – Nov. 4th 2018

Hello Everyone,

This week, the dominant theme of partnerships/relationships continues. We will experience the “peak” of two energy-cycles focused on this area, as well as the beginning of yet another energy-cycle that supports partnerships. There will also be a good flow feminine energy this week, supporting strategy-making, intuition and creativity. With that, let’s take a detailed look at the week ahead, what to expect and how to make the best use of the energy:

Monday October 29th the week begins with the start of a 2-week cycle of energy that is focused on relationships, especially committed partnerships: romantic, business and creative. Consciously working with this energy, especially both parties in the relationship, can result in lots of inspiration and fresh, new energy flowing in to benefit joint aims and projects. Clear, calm and open communication is very important in this process. If you are experiencing the other person “pushing your buttons”, it is an indication of deeper issues within yourself that need to be healed and released. Healing is a big part of this cycle, so try to pay attention and listen, rather than being reactive. Reflect upon the root cause and then actively take steps to work on releasing whatever the root may be. It’s also a good idea to reflect upon your relationships and how they affect your self-esteem, well-being and finances: any negative impact in these areas indicates issues and imbalances that need addressing.

This cycle of energy also supports us in being more assertive, creating strategies towards achieving goals, experiencing breakthroughs, and living life with more passion!

 

Tuesday October 30th we can expect bright, abundant energy, inspiring us in the process of healing and personal transformation. Try to start the day with meditation (even just a few minutes!) so that you are better able to connect with your intuition today, thereby increasing those “flashes” of inspiration! It’s also a great day for receiving insights into increasing the flow of prosperity and abundance into your life.

 

Wednesday October 31st we can look forward to a day of great potential in experiencing major breakthroughs in the areas of creativity, finances and relationships. Remember that we maximise this potential if we have been actively working with the energy and its themes discussed earlier. You should also bear in mind that these breakthroughs aren’t just a result of using your intellect. Rather, it is more about how open you are to receiving inspiration and intuitive “flashes”.

 

Thursday November 1st a new month begins with strong Yin (feminine) energy. This energy is very supportive of healing, teaching or mentoring, as well as being inspired by wisdom from your elders or from other cultures. Strategy-making is also well-supported today.

 

Friday November 2nd is a high-energy day when we experience the peak of the energy cycle that started on October 15th, focused on partnerships and healing. With the regards to partnerships, this is an opportunity to take romantic relationships to the next level, and/or strengthen and empower business partnerships. An important aspect of this energy is the giving and receiving of advice, guidance and knowledge. This aspect also applies to the area of healing: is there healing that you can offer or receive within partnerships that will enable taking the relationships to the next level? There is an element of action in this energy cycle, supporting one in actively seeking out the healing and/or knowledge that is needed.

 

Saturday November 3rd we have a second high-energy day as we experience the peak of the energy-cycle that started on October 25th, focused primarily on healing within partnerships, especially romantic ones. This energy cycle is also supportive of teaching, guidance and creative expression. Hopefully you have already been working on this healing aspect, as it’s been a dominant theme recently. If not, then begin today and make the most of this energy!

 

Sunday November 4th we finish the week with another day of “Yin” (feminine) energy. There is great potential for strengthening your strategic skills as well as assertiveness, but only if you are willing to make some adjustments in your approach and attitude. No dramatic changes, just “tweaking” things here and there. It’s also another great day for insights and breakthroughs, so pay attention to your intuition and make note of any “flashes of inspiration”.

 

Wishing all of you an empowering and healing week ahead!

Many blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast, Oct. 22nd – 28th 2018

Hello Everyone,

This week, the theme of relationships and healing continues, as we have more energy cycles beginning that further support this process. The theme of transformation is also a dominant one. The highlights of the week include the Full Moon in Taurus on Wednesday and a “Master” energy day on Sunday, so there is great potential for change and empowerment! 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 October 22nd the week begins with a high-energy day as we experience the peak of the energy cycle that started last Wednesday, focused on healing (especially within committed relationships). For your self-healing, focus on healing/releasing any issues or past hurts related to relationships. Within committed relationships, open, patient and compassionate communication is essential when discussing what adjustments or changes can be made on both sides in order to bring about a greater state of balance and harmony. This type of communication is also important if you’re providing healing to others during this time.

One more aspect to this energy-cycle is increasing the flow of wealth into your life. Take action within your work, and also take time daily (at least 10-15 minutes) to sit quietly and visualise your prosperity goals in their completed form. Use as many senses as possible and truly intend that each goal is now achieved. If you’re a Reiki 2 (or above) practitioner, this is an especially powerful time to work on any prosperity/abundance Reiki affirmations that you may have.

 

 

Tuesday October 23rd the energy will be supportive in reflecting upon the following so that you can be mindful of creating a state of transformation in these areas over the next month: strengthening and following your intuition, expressing your true self with others, the amount of energy you put into both your personal and professional relationships (is it fair and balanced?), and your approach to taking care of practical issues such as money management, taxes and insurance.

 

 

Wednesday October 24th is a high-energy day when we experience the Full Moon in Taurus. Any Full Moon is a good time to reflect on your current state of life and progress since the last Full Moon in order to make the appropriate changes/adjustments necessary for future progress and growth. The “earthy” influence of Taurus places extra emphasis on the areas of finances, personal possessions, connection to nature, perseverance and self-esteem. What can you release, or what changes or adjustments can you make in these areas in order to live a more balanced and empowered life? Listen to your intuition and allow it to guide you in this process.

This Full Moon in energy is wonderful for artistic and creative inspiration. This particular Full Moon is also especially supportive in the area of relationship healing and transformation, especially in committed partnerships. Communicate with each other about any issues and how both of you can work together in the process of healing and releasing these. It’s also a time of greater clarity in evaluating all significant relationships: notice which ones empower you and lift you up and which ones drag you down… it’s time to release those that drain you or hold you back from reaching your full potential.

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.

 

Thursday October 25th we’ll still be feeling the strong energy of yesterday’s Full Moon, combined with the beginning of a 4-week energy cycle focused primarily on healing within partnerships, especially romantic ones. This energy cycle is also supportive of teaching, guidance and creative expression. Hopefully you have already been working on this healing aspect, as it’s been a dominant theme recently. If not, then begin today and make the most of this energy!

 

 

Friday October 26th expect intuition and inspiration to be strong, so be prepared to take action on new ideas and inspiration received. There will also be an emphasis on transformation, especially in the areas of relationships, finances and creativity. If you’ve been reflecting upon these areas and have ideas about bringing about positive transformation in them, today is a good one for putting them into action. One word of caution: when dealing with others today, make sure you listen to your intuition (or “gut instinct”) in order to avoid being advantage of.

 

 

Saturday October 27th we can look forward to a day of positive, steady and supportive energy throughout the day. Although this energy can be applied to any activity today, it is especially good for spiritual practises, increasing the flow of prosperity and abundance, and working on the process of personal transformation.

 

 

Sunday October 28th the week finishes 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+0+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. In keeping with the current energy cycles, goals related to prosperity and abundance are strongly supported. 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 we have another 4-week energy cycle beginning that is focused on committed partnerships. This cycle has the potential to highlight any unresolved issues, which in itself can be difficult to handle. However, the point of this energy is to allow you to take your relationship to a wonderful, new level by facing these issues together, resolving them and moving forward in a positive and empowered way. Honest, open communication from the heart is very important in this process, so express yourself patiently, clearly and with love.

 

 

Wishing all of you a wonderful week ahead!

Many blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast, Oct. 15th – 21st 2018

Hello Everyone,

This week the focus is very much on partnerships, committed relationships and healing. We have two energy cycles starting this week that relate to this, as well as the aspect of increasing the flow of prosperity and abundance into your life. We also have a “Master” energy day coming up on Friday, so it’s a good opportunity to take action in building your future and manifesting goals. With that, let’s take a detailed look at the week ahead, what to expect and how to make the most of the energy:

Monday October 15th we start the week with strong energy as we begin a 4-week energy cycle focused on partnerships and healing. With the regards to partnerships, this is an opportunity to take romantic relationships to the next level, and/or strengthen and empower business partnerships. An important aspect of this energy is the giving and receiving of advice, guidance and knowledge. This aspect also applies to the area of healing: is there healing that you can offer or receive within partnerships that will enable taking the relationships to the next level? There is an element of action in this energy cycle, supporting one in actively seeking out the healing and/or knowledge that is needed.

In addition to the energy mentioned above, today there is good support for harmonious communication, so if there is a “difficult” conversation that you’ve been waiting to have with someone, today is a good one for doing so.

 

Tuesday October 16th we can expect a continuation of the energy that we experienced yesterday, with a focus on partnerships and empowering them through sharing wisdom and healing.

 

Wednesday October 17th we experience another cycle of energy beginning, this one lasting for 10 days and focused on healing (especially within committed relationships). This gives a big boost of energy to the cycle that started on Monday! For your self-healing, focus on healing/releasing any issues or past hurts related to relationships. Within committed relationships, open, patient and compassionate communication is essential when discussing what adjustments or changes can be made on both sides in order to bring about a greater state of balance and harmony. This type of communication is also important if you’re providing healing to others during this time.

One more aspect to this energy-cycle is increasing the flow of wealth into your life. Take action within your work, and also take time daily (at least 10-15 minutes) to sit quietly and visualise your prosperity goals in their completed form. Use as many senses as possible and truly intend that each goal is now achieved. If you’re a Reiki 2 (or above) practitioner, this is an especially powerful time to work on any prosperity/abundance Reiki affirmations that you may have.

 

Thursday October 18th we will continue to experience the combined influence of the energy cycles that started on Monday and yesterday. Continue working on healing and relationships, as well as increasing the flow of prosperity and abundance into your life.

 

Friday October 19th 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 (1+9+1+0+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. In keeping with the current energy cycles, goals related to prosperity and abundance are strongly supported. If you are a Reiki 2 (or above) practitioner, it’s an especially powerful day to work on your Reiki affirmations.

The energy may get a bit intense today, so remember to stay balanced and calm, and avoid conflict by not jumping to any conclusions.

 

Saturday October 20th we can look forward to plenty of powerful, positive energy supporting the areas of creative inspiration and expression, relationship and personal transformation, as well as financial inspiration and opportunities. Make the most of this energy by choosing the area(s) you would like to focus on and then taking action. Do something constructive with the inspiration you receive!

 

Sunday October 21st we finish the week with a day of light, bright energy. Rather than trying to accomplish many tasks, it’s a good idea to just enjoy the day doing what you enjoy. Better yet, spend the day with friends or loved ones, enjoying these activities! If weather permits, try to spend time outdoors.

 

Wishing all of you a wonderful week ahead!

Many blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast, Oct. 8th – 14th 2018

Hello Everyone,

We have some very strong energy starting the week and continuing through Wednesday. The highlight is the Libra New Moon on Tuesday, bringing with it a strong theme of transformation that will be felt for the rest of the week. The theme of partnerships also continues from last week, as well as healing and releasing. With that, let’s take a detailed look at what to expect this week and how to make the best use of the energy:


Monday October 8th the week begins a high- day with great potential in increasing the flow of wealth into your life, and extra support in the areas of creativity and healing old, unresolved issues (especially within the context of partnerships). All of these areas are greatly enhanced through partnering with others. If you live in North America, you will also experience the New Moon today. Please read tomorrow’s forecast on information on this.

 

Tuesday October 9th is a high-energy day when we experience the New Moon in Libra. Any New Moon is a good time for fresh starts and new beginnings, but the influence of Libra places extra emphasis on the areas of relationships, harmony, balance and creativity. This particular New Moon also has a strong energy of transformation, encouraging us to release that which no longer serves you in a positive way. Let go of possessions, habits, relationships and limiting thought-patterns that are holding you back from experiencing true transformation! The more you release, the more “space” you create for fresh, abundant, positive energy to flow into your life.

To more fully connect with this energy, 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 Libra 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.

 

Wednesday October 10th we have lots of powerful energy today as we experience the peak of two energy cycles! The first began on September 28th, focused on committed partnerships and healing any old issues/imbalances that are hindering the relationship or preventing it from being taken to the next level. The second one started on October 7th, focused on focused on two areas: learning, and open and honest communication especially within committed partnerships. This energy cycle may be very challenging because the communication aspect is focused on communicating about sensitive subjects (unresolved issues), but if you’re willing to do this in an open and compassionate manner, it can take committed partnerships to new levels.

During this time the intuition will be stronger than usual, so allow it to guide you in what/how to communicate, as well as what to learn. Pay attention to your “gut instinct” and flashes of inspiration! The learning aspect of this cycle can also be used to empower collaboration on projects that involve learning or communication.

 

Thursday October 11th the energy will be strong, supportive and “yin”, or feminine. This type of energy is very empowering for strategic thinking, problem-solving and making plans. Rather than starting new projects today, either work on current projects or create strategies for new ones. Yin energy is also receptive and grounding, so when you deal with others, take time to listen but also stand firmly when/where needed.

 

Friday October 12th the focus today is on transformation, especially through releasing what no longer serves your higher purpose. You may have been inspired in this area during the New Moon, or perhaps something/someone is is calling your attention these days. Let go and open the way for transformation! In addition to this, there is also good support today in relationships and creative expression.

 

Saturday October 13th the theme of transformation is dominant today, so continue to work on releasing that which no longer serves your higher purpose: possessions, habits, old patterns, relationships, thought-patterns etc.

 

Sunday October 14th we finish the week with a good flow of energy providing inspiration in the areas of creativity and relationships. If you’ve been experiencing any blockages or difficulties in these areas, there is good potential for practical inspiration in clearing blockages and overcoming issues.

 

Wishing all of you a transformational week ahead!

Many blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast, October 1st – 7th 2018

Hello Everyone,

This week we have a couple of interesting energy cycles beginning, with great potential in the areas of finances, relationships and healing. The highlight of the week occurs on Friday when Venus turns retrograde until mid-November. Although some see a retrograde period as difficult or challenging, instead we can choose to see it as a time of opportunity to make changes or adjustments in order to create a more positive and fulfilling life! With that, let’s take a look at the week ahead, what to expect and how to make the most of it:

Monday October 1st we begin a new month and a new week with plenty of positive energy flowing in two areas: increasing the flow of wealth into your life, and healing old, unresolved issues. This energy and its themes will be flowing for the next 3 weeks, so keep this in mind and consciously work with the energy in order to gain maximum benefits. This energy and its possibilities are greatly enhanced within committed partnerships, whether romantic or business, but remember the importance of thoughtful and considerate communication.

 

 

Tuesday October 2nd the energy is very supportive in thinking strategically and creating plans for your future. The intuition will also be stronger than usual, so pay attention to it and allow it to guide you in the process of creating strategies. Try to start the day with meditation (even just a few minutes!) so that you are better able to receive intuitive guidance and inspiration throughout the day. There is also good potential for creative expression and projects, but remember to stay open and flexible when working with others (don’t dominate or control!).

 

 

Wednesday October 3rd the energy cycle that started on Monday gets an additional “boost” today. In addition to increasing the flow of wealth into your life, and healing old, unresolved issues (especially within the context of partnerships), the area of creativity gets extra support. Again, this creative aspect is particularly powerful when it comes through a partner’s contributions.

 

 

Thursday October 4th we can expect a day of active, positive energy with great potential for creative expression and projects, as well as inspired communication.

 

 

Friday October 5th is a high-energy day when we experience Venus turning retrograde until November 16th. During a time of Venus retrograde, we can expect to re-evaluate our values and ideals in life. It’s a good time to gain a deeper understanding of yourself and how you relate to those around you, as well as reflecting upon the theme of “self love”. Remember that when we love and care for ourselves, we attract healthy relationships (of all types) into our lives. At the same time, think about your own behaviour within relationships and whether or not you express negative aspects such as jealousy, obsession, possessiveness or passive-aggressive behaviour.

Although it can be very difficult to acknowledge these aspects within ourselves, it is a very important step in changing behaviours and healing the root cause. Recognise that fear is most often the root cause: fear of not being loved, fear of being alone or abandoned, fear of rejection etc. Another cause is unresolved emotional pain resulting from previous negative experiences (most often from childhood). Whatever the root, take responsibility and take control of the situation by focusing on your process of healing and release. Use whichever method of healing works best for you and make a commitment to take action on your healing process daily (even if it’s just for a few minutes). For Reiki practitioners, take at least 15 minutes per day to place the hands over the heart chakra and allow the Reiki to flow while you meditate on the issues mentioned earlier. If the root cause is related to very old issues/experiences, it is also helpful to apply Reiki to the first and second chakras.

During any retrograde period, the process of reflection tends to be better-supported than the process of taking action. For this reason, as a general rule, one is advised to avoid starting a new relationship, starting a new creative project (improve and work on existing ones, instead) or making large purchases during Venus retrograde. In finances, quick gains will most likely result in quick losses, so make any financial decisions carefully in order to make the most of the energy.

Venus retrograde only occurs once every year-and-a-half or so, so be aware of making the most of this 6-week opportunity!

 

 

Saturday October 6th the energy won’t be as strong as yesterday, but we can expect similar themes. Take time to reflect upon the themes of Venus retrograde and how you can best use the time for healing and growth.

 

 

Sunday October 7th we finish the week with a high-energy day that is the beginning of a 6-day cycle of energy focused on two areas: learning, and open and honest communication especially within committed partnerships. This energy cycle may be very challenging because the communication aspect is focused on communicating about sensitive subjects (unresolved issues), but if you’re willing to do this in an open and compassionate manner, it can take committed partnerships to new levels.

During this time the intuition will be stronger than usual, so allow it to guide you in what/how to communicate, as well as what to learn. The learning aspect of this cycle can also be used to empower collaboration on projects that involve learning or communication.

There is a low side to this energy cycle: escapism, aimlessness, or “playing the victim”. By being aware of this, you can then recognise if you are falling into any of these traps and then take action to shift the energy by changing your attitude and making positive changes or adjustments.

 

 

Wishing all of you a wonderful week!

Many blessings,

Chantal
