Weekly Forecast, March 25th – 31st 2019

Hello Everyone,

The energy this week will be less intense than it was last week, although we have good opportunities to manifest prosperity, abundance and goals with “Master” energy on Monday as well as the energy on Friday. But in my opinion, the highlight of the week occurs on Thursday when we experience Mercury turning “direct” after being retrograde since March 5th. There are also good opportunities for business and personal relationships, so please read on for details on what to expect this week and how to best use the energy:


Monday March 25th 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+5+3+2+0+1+9 =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, and truly intend that each goal is now accomplished. 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 there is also excellent support for personal vitality, leadership and business opportunities.

 

Tuesday March 26th we can expect a day of gentle, flowing energy. It’s a good day to continue work on current projects, or ones that you may have started yesterday. Avoid rushing around, instead focus on current tasks without taking on too much.

 

Wednesday March 27th we can expect the energy to be very supportive in the areas of creative expression and inspiration, as well as in strengthening connections with those who are nearest and dearest to you.

 

Thursday March 28th is a high-energy day when we experience Mercury turning “direct” after being retrograde since March 5th. 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). However, please note that in terms of starting new projects or business ventures, it’s advised that you wait until after the next New Moon (which occurs on April 5th). As for any insights you may have gained over the past three weeks related to creative expression, spiritual practises, self-healing (especially old, unresolved emotional issues), efficiency and time management… it’s time to put these into action, too!

 

Friday March 29th we can look forward to some bright, positive energy. It’s not about “going with the flow”, it’s about “being in the flow”. If you’re on the right track, expect things to fall into place almost effortlessly today. Manifesting using intention/visualisation techniques such as Law of Attraction, Reiki affirmations etc. is also greatly supported today. As you did on Monday, take 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, and truly intend that each goal is now accomplished.

 

Saturday March 30th the energy will be strongly “yin”, or feminine. You can actively use this energy to help you in developing or strengthening the following areas: strategic thinking and planning, negotiation, and harmonious problem-solving. If you are currently dealing with issues at work or within relationships, reflect upon how you can use these “yin” aspects to bring about a state of balance and harmony.

 

Sunday March 31st we finish the week (and the month!) with a high-energy day focused on committed partnerships (both romantic and work), and how well you communicate within them. Harmonious and clear communication is empowered, creating deeper connections. However, if there are issues with communication (misunderstandings, “crossed lines”, holding back important information or even dishonesty), it’s likely that these issues will be brought to the surface today. If this is the case, it’s important to take time to reflect upon what actions can be taken by both sides in order to create a better, clearer and deeper state of communication within the partnership. Partnerships are also strengthened today through sharing information, teaching and learning together.

In addition to this focus on communication, the energy today is also very supportive of creative expression and activities.

 

 

Wishing all of you a wonderful week ahead!

Many blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast March 18th – 24th 2019

Hello Everyone,

We have an abundance of strong energy coming up this week, with peaks of multiple energy cycles, but the big highlight occurs on Thursday when we experience the Spring Equinox combined with the Full Moon in Libra. It should be noted that depending on your location, you may experience the Equinox/Full Moon on Wednesday (here in Hong Kong, it occurs on Thursday). Please click on the following link so that you can confirm the date in your location: https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?iso=20190320T2158&msg=March Equinox 2019   I have included lots of information in this Forecast about how you can use the energy of the Spring Equinox, as well as the rest of the energy coming up, so please read on for all of the details:

Monday March 18th the week begins with a high-energy day as we experience the start of two energy cycles. The first one lasts for two weeks and is focused on having goals that are aligned with your heart and higher-purpose, and taking action to reach those goals. It’s important to have a clear strategy so that you can go step-by-step in creating a more fulfilling life through these goals.

The second energy-cycle lasts for nine days and is supportive of the first energy cycle mentioned above, but this one encourages us to “think outside the box” in taking a creative approach in our actions. It’s also worthwhile considering whether or not your goals may be more easily reached by working with a partner.

 

Tuesday March 19th the energy continues to be supportive in taking action with achieving your goals, as well as being a great day to work on manifesting these goals using intention/visualisation techniques such as Reiki Affirmations, Law of Attraction etc. Take time to sit quietly and visualise your goal(s) in its completed form. Use as many of your senses as possible, and truly intend that the goal is now achieved.

 

Wednesday March 20th we can expect a day of positive, empowering energy. Continued work on manifesting your goals is strongly supported, as is physical vitality, creativity, entrepreneurship and persistence. You may notice the energy continue to strengthen as the day goes on and we approach the very powerful energy of tomorrow’s Spring Equinox and Full Moon.

Thursday March 21st is a VERY high-energy day when we experience the potent combination of the Spring Equinox and the Full Moon in Libra.

In astrological terms, the Spring Equinox is one of the four most powerful points of the year along with the Autumn Equinox, Summer Solstice and Winter Solstice, and is the time of rebirth and beginning anew. This theme of “rebirth and renewal” can be applied to all areas of life, but there is also a strong healing aspect that comes with this energy. It is an ideal time to work on healing and releasing any old issues or “hurts”, especially ones that have been triggered recently or are “pushing their way to the surface”. The energy is very supportive of this, so if you are a Reiki (or other healing modality) practitioner, make sure that you set aside for full self-treatments. Or perhaps you may prefer to see a healer who can assist you with this releasing/healing process.

You are also encouraged to create changes in your life so that you live more and more in accordance with what to truly makes you happy, what fulfills you, and what benefits you as well as others.

Bear in mind that the themes and energy of this Spring Equinox will continue for the next three months (until the time of the Summer Solstice), so you can continue to enjoy the extra support in these areas until that time.

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.

If you would like to focus your attention on the process of healing and releasing old hurts, emotional traumas etc., which is also empowered during this Equinox time, you can also try the following self-healing technique that I have adapted from an Advanced Reiki Training method, so anyone can practise it:

1. Sit quietly and comfortably, breathing deeply and evenly as you prepare to contemplate each old or unresolved issue. You may want to work on one issue per “session” or multiple ones.

2. As you contemplate the issue, pay attention to any part(s) of the body that comes to mind.

3. Bring your attention to this area and imagine it filled with a dark fog (you may see a colour clearly, so work with that. Otherwise, imagine a dark grey fog). This “fog” is representative of the negative or stagnant energy resulting from the unresolved issue.

4. Now breathe in deeply and imagine a brilliant white mist entering your body through the top of your head and travelling to the part of the body that is filled with the grey fog.

5. As you exhale, imagine the grey fog leaving your body (you may choose to imagine breathing this out through the mouth, or intending/visualising that the grey fog is being released directly from the affected area.

6. Continue breathing in the white mist and breathing out the dark fog until you can no longer perceive/feel/imagine it (which indicates a clearing of the area).

7. Spend at least a few minutes filling the entire area with brilliant, white, light mist.

8. Acknowledge the lessons learned from the issue and give thanks.
During this exercise, I recommend placing the hands over the area that you are working on. Everyone has “chi” flowing from the hands, so this assists the healing process. If you are a Reiki (or other energy healing) practitioner, you will find that the energy flowing from the hands greatly assists this exercise.

Regarding the Full Moon in Libra, any Full Moon is a good time for “taking stock” and reflecting upon how your life has been flowing since the last Full Moon, as well as seeing what changes or adjustments need to made in order to create a more harmonious flow. However, the influence of Libra places special emphasis on the areas of relationships, finances and creativity. Reflect upon each of these areas and ask yourself whether or not they are in a state of balance, if you need to take a different approach, and whether or not your actions, behaviour and attitude in these areas are serving your highest good. If not, it’s time to make some changes or adjustments. The intuition will also be especially strong, so pay attention to it and allow it to guide you in making appropriate changes.

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.

 

Friday March 22nd is a high-energy day when we will still be feeling some of the effects of yesterday’s very powerful energy, as well as experiencing the peaks of two energy cycles. One started on March 11th, focused on taking action. During this time we can expect the intuition to be stronger than usual, especially in the area of inspired thinking. Use the intuition to guide you in taking action, especially in ways that are in alignment with your higher-purpose. So pay attention to your intuition and any “flashes” of inspiration, especially if the path of action fills your heart with joy.

The second cycle that peaks today began on March 13th, and shows us that perseverance and action in alignment with our higher purpose leads to breakthroughs, learning, wisdom and true inner-joy.

In addition to the above, today’s energy is also very supportive in the areas of healing, creativity, productivity and starting new projects. Regarding the healing aspect, this supportive energy applies to both giving and receiving healing.

 

Saturday March 23rd is a high-energy day when we experience the peaks of the two energy cycles that started on Monday. I’ll repeat that information here for your reference: the first one is focused on having goals that are aligned with your heart and higher-purpose, and taking action to reach those goals. It’s important to have a clear strategy so that you can go step-by-step in creating a more fulfilling life through these goals.

The second energy-cycle is supportive of the first energy cycle mentioned above, but this one encourages us to “think outside the box” in taking a creative approach in our actions. It’s also worthwhile considering whether or not your goals may be more easily reached by working with a partner.

In addition to these energy “peaks”, today’s energy also encourages us to take a closer look at committed partnerships. How is the state of your communication and trust? If these areas are healthy, then the energy gives this an additional “boost”. If you find that these areas are weak or need some changes, it’s time to express this and then work together in order to create a state of harmony and deeper connection.

 

Sunday March 24th we finish the week with a day of receptivity. Be open to the ideas of others, as well as open to receiving information and inspiration from your higher-self.

 

Wishing all of you a productive and empowering week ahead, and a wonderful Spring Equinox!

Many blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast, March 11th – 17th 2019

Hello Everyone,

This week there is an emphasis on action and productivity in alignment with your higher purpose, with lots of strong energy to assist with this. We have two energy-cycles beginning as well as two cycles peaking, as well as a day of Master Energy on Saturday! Read on for full details on what to expect and how to make the most of this energy during a week with lots of potential!


Monday March 11th we start the week with a high-energy day as we experience the start of an 11-day energy-cycle that supports action. During this time we can expect the intuition to be stronger than usual, especially in the area of inspired thinking. Use the intuition to guide you in taking action, especially in ways that are in alignment with your higher-purpose. So pay attention to your intuition and any “flashes” of inspiration, especially if the path of action fills your heart with joy.

 

Tuesday March 12th the energy won’t be as strong as it was yesterday, but the same themes are supported. Pay attention to your intuition and any areas in which you are guided to take action.

 

Wednesday March 13th is a high-energy day when we experience the peak of the energy-cycle that started on February 26th, focused on committed relationships. As I mentioned in that forecast, this can be either an empowering or challenging time, depending upon how your relationship has been going over the past couple of months or so. If your relationship is balanced and going well, you can expect plenty of abundant and positive energy that you can share with each other emotionally, physically and mentally.

However, if you’ve been experiencing difficulties, it’s time to reflect upon whether your relationship brings you more sorrow or worry than abundance. If there is sorrow (the dominant emotion that can be triggered during this time), it is very important for both partners to work together to heal and release the root cause(s) in order to create a strong, positive relationship. Communicating with love, patience and understanding is essential. The following free, guided meditation that I’ve created for the heart chakra can help to open, clear and heal this area. It’s helpful to place the hands over the heart chakra area during the meditation (especially so for Reiki practitioners), as everyone has “chi” flowing from the palms, which can assist in clearing and healing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WK-zIQIv0I4&t=88s or https://soundcloud.com/chantal-phillips/guided-meditation-heart-chakra?in=chantal-phillips/sets/guided-meditations

We also experience the beginning of a 16-day energy-cycle that works beautifully with the energy cycle that started on Monday. This one shows us that perseverance and action in alignment with our higher purpose leads to breakthroughs, learning, wisdom and true inner-joy.

In addition to these two energy cycles, today’s energy is also especially supportive of manifesting techniques using intention/visualisation such as Law of Attraction and Reiki Affirmations. Whatever your preferred technique, make sure to set aside 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, and truly intend that each goal is now accomplished.

 

Thursday March 14th the energy is all about persistence and productivity, so remember that the more you put into your actions, the more rewarding the results! Additionally, the intuition continues to be strong, so pay attention to it and allow it to guide you in how/where you take action. The energy today is also very supportive of learning and communication.

 

Friday March 15th is a high-energy day when we experience the peak of the energy-cycle that started on Monday, focused on action that is motivated by inspired thinking and working in alignment with your higher purpose. Please refer to Monday’s forecast for details.

In addition to the influence of the energy-cycle peak, as with yesterday the intuition continues to be strong and the energy is also very supportive of learning and communication.

 

Saturday March 16th 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+6+3+2+0+1+9 =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, and truly intend that each goal is now accomplished. If you are a Reiki 2 (or above) practitioner, it’s an especially powerful day to work on your Reiki affirmations.

 

Sunday March 17th we finish the week with a day of grounded, practical energy. This energy is great for creative expression and activities, as well as practical action (nothing risky or too adventurous!). You may even enjoy doing special grounding exercises today, whether taking a walk in nature or doing specific exercises to strengthen your sense of grounding. You can read my article about grounding (which includes techniques that everyone can practise) here: http://www.healingfire.com/tips-for-grounding/ or you may enjoy listening to my free, guided meditation for grounding: http://www.healingfire.com/mp3/

 

Wishing all of you a positive and productive week ahead!

Many blessings,

Weekly Forecast, March 4th – 10th 2019

Hello Everyone,

We have an eventful week ahead, with Mercury turning retrograde on Tuesday, the New Moon in Pisces on Wednesday and a day of “Master Energy” on Thursday! There are also excellent opportunities to manifest your dreams and goals, as long as you stay focused and consciously use the energy. The “darker” side of the energy can manifest as being aimless, or escapism through excessive day-dreaming or intoxicants. You can avoid this “dark side” by actively working every day with the positive aspects detailed in the Forecast below. With that, let’s take a detailed look at the week ahead and how to work with the energy:

Monday March 4th the week begins on a rather “quiet” note, with gentle energy. Rather than starting new projects or trying to accomplish many tasks, it’s a better idea to continue work on current projects and “go with the flow” as much as possible today.

 

Tuesday March 5th is a high-energy day as we experience Mercury turning retrograde until the 28th of this month. Mercury retrograde often has a “difficult” reputation because of the likelihood of problems and mix-ups in the areas of communication, travel and technology. It’s true that 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 retrograde period can actually be a great time for personal growth, and 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. This particular retrograde period is also a good one in which to reflect upon how you’re progressing with your spiritual practises and creative self-expression. Be aware that the dark side of this manifests as escapism, aimlessness or “playing the victim”. If you notice these aspects in yourself during periods of self-reflection, make a conscious effort to “change gears” and actively start expressing the positive aspects of the energy through healing the root cause(s) of this behaviour.

 

Wednesday March 6th is a high-energy day when we experience the New Moon in Pisces. Any New Moon is an ideal time for new beginnings and fresh starts, but the influence of Pisces (which is ruled by the Water element) places extra emphasis on the following: inspired creativity, spiritual practises, heightened intuition, and opening your heart to more fully give and receive love and compassion. Pay attention to your intuition and allow it to guide you in empowering these areas.

To more fully connect with today’s New Moon 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 Pisces 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.

In addition to the Pisces New Moon energy, there is also a huge boost of supportive energy in manifesting your long-term projects and goals by using self-discipline, focus, and careful planning. This energy is also excellent for manifesting goals using visualisation/intention techniques such as Reiki affirmations or Law of Attraction. However, with all of this positive and empowering energy, make sure that you don’t over-do it or take on too many tasks/projects at the same time.

 

Thursday March 7th is a high-energy 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 (7+3+2+0+1+9 =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, and truly intend that each goal is now accomplished. If you are a Reiki 2 (or above) practitioner, it’s an especially powerful day to work on your Reiki affirmations.

 

Friday March 8th we can expect a day of light, positive energy. It’s a great day to stay active (although not over-doing it!) and continue work on projects, especially in areas that you may have been inspired in during the time of the New Moon.

 

Saturday March 9th the energy will be focused on manifesting your goals (visualisation/intention exercises, Law of Attraction etc.) and creative ideas, as well as expressing yourself from the heart with love and compassion. Spiritual practises, especially ones that involve “awakening” are also strongly supported. Be conscious of this as you go through your day, so that you can manifest the most positive aspects of this energy. You should also take 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, and truly intend that each goal is now accomplished. If you are a Reiki 2 (or above) practitioner, it’s an especially powerful day to work on your Reiki affirmations.

 

Sunday March 10th the week finishes with a day of strong physical vitality as well as strong intuition. Make the most of this energy by engaging in enjoyable physical activities, paying attention to any “flashes” of inspiration, and listening to your intuition and allowing it to guide you.

 

Wishing all of you a positive and productive week ahead!

Many blessings,

Chantal
