Weekly Forecast Nov. 26th – Dec. 2nd 2018

Hello Everyone,

This week there is a continued emphasis on learning, teaching and communication. There are good opportunities in these areas, but just make sure that you are guided by your higher-self rather than by your ego. The highlight of the week is a day of “Master Energy” on Tuesday, a great day for action and working on manifesting goals. There are also good opportunities for bringing more harmony and balance into relationships and connecting well with others. So now, let’s take a detailed look at the week ahead and how we can use the energy for our highest good:

 

Monday November 26th the week starts with an emphasis on communication and learning. Just keep in mind that when you are sharing information with others that they are receptive, don’t force your viewpoint on others!

 

Tuesday November 27th 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 (2+7+1+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, 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”, there is also a continuation of yesterday’s themes of learning and communication.

 

Wednesday November 28th the energy will be focused on opportunities for re-energising, transformation and relationships. Be open and aware of potential opportunities for success by tapping into new or overlooked resources, as well as increasing your knowledge in areas related to your career. These opportunities lead to transformation as well as re-energising you and your path to success in your chosen area(s). Regarding relationships, it’s likely that a current challenge in your relationship is presenting you with the opportunity to talk things through in order to create a stronger sense of harmony and balance. In this case, it is very important to communicate (both speaking and listening) from the heart with compassion, honesty and clarity.

 

Thursday November 29th is a day to reflect upon what really drives you, what is at your core that brings your life deeper meaning and higher purpose. The energy today can give you new insights into this area that can lead you to taking positive action, as well as providing lots of energy in taking it to a higher level. This energy is also very empowering in any activities related to service to others.

 

Friday November 30th the intuition will be stronger than usual, so pay attention to it and allow it to guide you in the following areas: creativity and creative expression, and relationships. In relationships, this energy is related to starting a new relationship or strengthening a current one. I recommend starting the day with meditation (even just a few minutes!) so that you are better able to receive intuitive guidance and inspiration throughout the day.

 

Saturday December 1st we start a new month with a high-energy day, the peak of an energy cycle that started on November 9th, providing lots of energy and support in creative activities that serve/assist others, finding ways to serve your higher calling, and partnering with someone you trust in order to make your services more efficient and profitable in every way.

 

Sunday December 2nd the week ends with a day that supports good team-work and spending time with friends and loved ones. Just be aware of your own state of balance as there is potential for moodiness or over-reaction. If this happens, take a step back and give yourself a few minutes to breathe deeply, let go and return to your centre.

 

Wishing all of you a great week ahead!

Many blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast, Nov. 19th – 25th 2018

Hello Everyone,

We have some very strong energy coming up this week, the highlights being the Full Moon in Gemini on Friday and Neptune turning “direct” on Saturday (after being retrograde since June). We also have two energy-cycle peaks on Tuesday and on Sunday… whew! A lot of powerful energy with great potential! If you find that the strong energy is causing you to feel a bit “all over the place”, it’s an indication that you need to do some work on your grounding. You can check out the following article I wrote about techniques for grounding (things that everyone can do!) for help in this area: http://www.healingfire.com/tips-for-grounding/

I would also like mention that I forgot to include some important information in last week’s Forecast: Mercury turned retrograde on Saturday the 17th and will turn “direct” again on December 7th. I think I’ll blame that omission on the effects of Mercury retrograde! Anyway, here is information on Mercury in retrograde and how to navigate through it in the best possible way:

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.

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.

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 November 19th the week begins with a day of active, positive energy that is especially empowering in the areas of creativity, spiritual practises and physical activities (sports, exercise etc.). Make sure you stay active, otherwise you may feel agitated or restless. Instead, channel this active energy into pursuits that you enjoy.

 

Tuesday November 20th is a high-energy day when we experience the peak of the energy cycle that started on November 9th, focused on committed partnerships, personal transformation and creative expression. Within committed partnerships, think about your highest goals, the vision you have for a strong, balanced and harmonious partnership at its best. Then, actively work on manifesting this through harmonious communication, willingness to make changes or adjustments and releasing old patterns and hurts. This can also be applied to your own personal process of transformation: reflect upon your highest goals for yourself, your vision of yourself, and then actively work on manifesting this through opening yourself to healing and releasing the old hurts and patterns that are holding you back. Try something new, and be willing to make changes.

The intuition will be especially strong during this time, so pay attention to it and allow it to guide you in the area mentioned above, as well as in any type of creative expression.

 

Wednesday November 21st the focus is on maintaining your state of balance and grounding, or creating a state of energetic balance and grounding (depending on what your state of being is at the moment). If you’re a Reiki practitioner, try starting the day with your chakra-balancing technique, then finishing up by applying Reiki to the soles of the feet for grounding. Even better, try to take time for a full self-treatment. Whether or not one is a Reiki practitioner, be aware of your state of balance and then use your preferred method of re-balancing. You can also improve your grounding by spending time in nature (even just a 15-minute walk in a park!). The intuition will be stronger than usual today, so allow it to guide you in methods of creating and maintaining a state of balance.

 

Thursday November 22nd the energy will be supportive of spiritual practises, exploring philosophical ideas, education and working with knowledge. However, make sure that in your enthusiasm you don’t spread yourself too thinly!

 

Friday November 23rd is a high-energy day when we experience the Full Moon in Gemini. Any Full Moon is a good time to release or make adjustments, but the influence of Gemini places extra emphasis on how you learn and share information. Other areas influence by this energy include the amount of change and variety in your life, as well as your relationships with friends, relatives and neighbours. Healing is also energised by this particular Full Moon, so it’s a great idea to take time for a full Reiki (or other healing energy) self-treatment or to receive a treatment from a practitioner.

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.

 

Saturday November 24th is a high-energy day when we experience Neptune turning “direct” after being retrograde since June 18th. Neptune is related to living in harmony with your higher purpose, divine inspiration and the spiritual area of life. During a retrograde period of Neptune, we can become much more aware of that which does and doesn’t serve our higher purpose and then make the necessary changes and adjustments that allow us to let go, change and transform our lives in positive, powerful ways.If you have been actively working on these areas during the time of Neptune retrograde (which is not an easy process!), things should get much easier with Neptune turning direct.

Furthermore, the intuition is highlighted so allow it to guide you, especially in the areas of spirituality, your true life purpose and psychic/3rd eye awakening. Creativity is also strongly supported now, with the imagination empowered and inspiration to be found all around you. However, be aware that there is a darker side to Neptune direct: choosing fantasy over reality. This can manifest as deluding oneself that a negative, stagnant or unhelpful situation is fine to tolerate or live with. For example, staying in an unhealthy relationship, a “dead-end” or unfulfilling job, justifying unhealthy habits etc. In order to avoid falling into this trap of illusion, use your heart and intuition!

Take a step back and reflect upon the different areas of your life (relationships, work, health, spirituality, life-path etc.). As you reflect upon each one, how do you feel? If you’re not feeling fulfilled or empowered, it’s time for some big changes. So many people accept their situations because of fear: fear of being alone, fear of not being able to support oneself, fear of change, fear of failure etc. In order to avoid facing reality, they embrace illusions. Don’t fall into this trap! Stay focused, gather your energy and make a strategy for change that you can act upon as soon as possible.

 

Sunday November 25th we finish the week with a high-energy day as we experience the peak of the energy cycle that started on November 17th, focused on relationships (especially committed partnerships). There could be challenges coming up today, but these serve to either help you take the relationship to the next level by working through and resolving issues, or to help you to let go of what may be a “toxic” situation. Whatever you choose, make sure that you communicate clearly and from the heart, and don’t take any rash action. Rather, use your sense of maturity and wisdom, and aim for creating a “win-win” situation. Remember that you need to be very clear in how you express yourself (as well as being a good listener!), as Mercury retrograde can be a time of misunderstandings.

 

Wishing all of you an empowered week ahead!

Many blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast, Nov. 12th – 18th 2018

Hello Everyone,

This week we will continue to experience aspects of relationship and personal transformation, along with good opportunities for being inspired. The highlight of the week occurs on Friday when we have Venus turning “direct” after being retrograde since the beginning of October. In addition to this, we have the peak of an energy cycle on Tuesday and a “Master Energy” day on Sunday. With that, let’s take a detailed look at what to expect this week and how to make the most of the energy:


Monday November 12th the week gets off to a good start as we continue to experience positive energy from yesterday. Although not as intense, we can expect a day of dynamic, positive energy. Breakthroughs in your process of self-healing, transformation, as well as in the area of abundance are also strongly supported.

 

 

Tuesday November 13th is a high-energy day when we experience the peak of the 4-week energy cycle that started on October 28th 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.

 

 

Wednesday November 14th we can expect a day of good support in the areas of communication and receptivity. Keep an open mind and you may be surprised at where inspiration comes to you!

 

 

Thursday November 15th we can look forward to a day of stronger-than-usual intuition, and active energy supporting us in taking action on any intuitive insights and flashes of inspiration. Just make sure that any actions you take are serving your higher purpose rather than your ego.

 

 

Friday November 16th is a high-energy day when we experience Venus turning “direct” after being retrograde since October 5th. During the retrograde period, I recommended reflecting and re-evaluating your values and ideals in life. It was 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”. (remembering that when we love and care for ourselves, we attract healthy relationships of all types into our lives). During any retrograde period, the process of reflection tends to be better-supported than the process of taking action.

This applies to the areas mentioned above, as well as other “Venus themes” such as starting new relationships, starting a new creative project, making large purchases and making financial decisions. However, with Venus now “direct”, now is the time to take action with any insights and inspiration gained during the retrograde period.

 

 

Saturday November 17th today is the end of the powerful 4-week cycle of energy that started on October 15th, focused on partnerships and healing. Hopefully, you have used this energy well in taking romantic relationships to the next level, and/or strengthening and empowering 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. Today, take time to reflect upon these themes and how you can apply the energy towards them.

 

Sunday November 18th 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 (1+8+1+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, 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.

 

Wishing all of you a wonderful week ahead!

Many blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast, Nov. 5th – 11th 2018

Hello Everyone,

This week there is still an emphasis on partnerships, but personal transformation, manifesting and abundance are also strongly supported. We have some great, positive energy to look forward to, with the highlights being the New Moon in Scorpio on Wednesday and a “Master Energy” day on Friday. There are also many who consider Sunday the 11th to be significant because of the Master Number “11”, 11:11:11 (2+0+1+8= 11). If you have a tendency to see the number “11” (for example, glancing at the clock at precisely the time of 11:11), then this may be a very interesting day for you! So read on to find out what we can expect this week and how to make the best use of the energy:


Monday November 5th the week starts with a day of “quiet” energy. Rather than trying to accomplish many tasks or start new projects, today is better-suited to working on current projects and “going with the flow” as much as possible. Listen to your body and your energy levels and only take on what you can comfortably handle.

 

Tuesday November 6th is a high-energy day when we experience the peak of the 2-week cycle of energy that started on October 29th, 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, spiritual awakening and living life with more passion!

 

Wednesday November 7th is a high-energy day when we experience the New Moon in Scorpio. Any New Moon is wonderful time for new beginnings, starting projects and taking action. However, the influence of Scorpio places additional emphasis on the areas of transformation (especially spiritual transformation), releasing old issues and hurts, and joining forces with others in sharing resources and energy for both personal and professional advancement. This particular New Moon energy makes it a great time to increase wealth, as well as take care of practical financial areas such as inheritance, insurance, taxes etc. All visualisation work is also enhanced today, so it’s ideal for doing manifesting visualising work, especially with any goals related to finances. Use you preferred method of visualisation with intention (Law of Attraction etc.), and if you’re a Reiki 2 (or above) practitioner, get busy with those Reiki affirmations!

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 Scorpio 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.

 

Thursday November 8th the intuition will be stronger than usual and there is great potential in being guided and inspired in the process of transformation, both spiritually and personally. Listen to your inner-voice and pay attention to any “signs” you may receive guiding you in what changes or adjustments you need to make in order to welcome big, positive changes. I recommend starting the day with meditation (even just a few minutes), so that you are better able to receive intuitive guidance and inspiration throughout the day.

 

Friday November 9th 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 (9+1+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, 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 also experience the beginning of two energy cycles. The first cycle, which runs for the next 5 weeks, provides lots of energy and support in creative activities that serve/assist others, finding ways to serve your higher calling, and partnering with someone you trust in order to make your services more efficient and profitable in every way.

The second cycle of energy, which runs for the next 2 weeks, is focused on committed partnerships, personal transformation and creative expression. Within committed partnerships, think about your highest goals, the vision you have for a strong, balanced and harmonious partnership at its best. Then, actively work on manifesting this through harmonious communication, willingness to make changes or adjustments and releasing old patterns and hurts. This can also be applied to your own personal process of transformation: reflect upon your highest goals for yourself, your vision of yourself, and then actively work on manifesting this through opening yourself to healing and releasing the old hurts and patterns that are holding you back. Try something new, and be willing to make changes.

The intuition will be especially strong during this time, so pay attention to it and allow it to guide you in the area mentioned above, as well as in any type of creative expression.

 

Saturday November 10th the energy will be strong, although not as intense as yesterday. Make the most of the energy by continuing to work on the themes discussed in yesterday’s forecast.

 

Sunday November 11th we end the week with a day of dynamic, positive energy. Breakthroughs in your process of self-healing, transformation, as well as in the area of abundance are strongly supported. The intuition will be especially strong, so if you get any flashes of inspiration or guidance (especially in the areas mentioned), pay special attention.

As I mentioned in the introduction, today is also considered by many to be a significant day that is all about “awakening”. This is the vibration of “11”. Major shifts as well as leaps in spiritual growth are possible, so pay attention to synchronicities and enjoy increased power in manifesting!

 

Wishing all of you an empowered and productive week ahead!

Many blessings,

Chantal
