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!
