We have a very exciting week to look forward to! The highlights include the New Moon on Wednesday, Master energy on Thursday and the Autumn Equinox on Saturday (for Hong Kong). Please check your location by clicking on the following link, as depending upon where you live, the Equinox will occur on Friday: https://www.timeanddate.com/calendar/autumnal-equinox.html
There is such an incredible amount of potential in the energy this week, but you must consciously use it in order to benefit from it. Also bear in mind that the intuition will be especially strong over the coming days, so listen to your inner-voice and pay attention! Let’s take a detailed look at the week ahead and how we can make the best use of the energy for growth and transformation:
Monday September 18th the week begins with a day of stronger-than-usual intuition and a smooth flow of energy supporting the areas of relationships, finances and creative activities. What breakthroughs would you like to experience in these areas? Take time to reflect upon this and pay attention to any “flashes” of intuition that can guide and inspire you in creating positive changes and shifts. In making decisions, remember that it is very important to stay true to yourself.
Tuesday September 19th the intuition will still be strong and we also experience more active energy than yesterday, focused mainly on the areas of mentoring and healing. In regards to healing, old issues may be triggered today. If this is the case for you, know that these issues are being pushed to the surface so that they may be healed and released. Take time for a full healing-session (Reiki or other energy) in order to maximise the potential for healing and releasing. Another aspect of the “healing theme” we experience today is that the energy can also be used to heal any issues that are related to yesterday’s themes of relationships, finances and creative expression.
Wednesday September 20th is a VERY high-energy day when we experience the New Moon in Virgo. Any New Moon is a wonderful time for taking action, new beginnings and fresh starts, but the influence of Virgo places special emphasis on the areas of health, service to others and healing practises. This energy can also be used to re-energise any routines or daily activities that you may have. Remember that the intuition will be especially strong today, so pay attention to your “gut instinct” or any “signs”.
A good way to connect with the energy today is through meditation. You can do your own, choose to meditate on all you have to be grateful for in your life, 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 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 September 21st 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+1+9+2+0+1+7= 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 (especially those related to prosperity and abundance), so ensure that you set aside some time to sit quietly and visualise each of your goals in their completed forms. To make this exercise more effective, try to use as many of your senses as possible (feel, smell, hear… and most of all, intend) when you visualise. If you are a Reiki 2 (or above) practitioner, it’s an especially powerful day to work on your Reiki affirmations.
In addition to this Master Energy, today we also have some powerful energy supporting creative activities and inspiration, as well as good potential for healing and spiritual awakening. Choose the area(s) you’d like to focus on and then go for it, don’t waste the energy!
Friday September 22nd is a high-energy day with strong themes that will continue throughout tomorrow, in addition to the Autumn Equinox energy (please read tomorrow’s forecast for details about the Equinox). These themes include the following: healing, strong intuition, physical activity, creativity, assertiveness and creating strategies. This positive energy is filled with potential, but you need to choose the areas in which you wish to focus the energy and then take appropriate action otherwise the energy will be wasted. Use this special time of the Equinox to create some wonderful changes and growth!
Saturday September 23rd is a VERY high-energy day when we experience the Autumnal Equinox.
On this day, we have nearly equal amounts of daytime and night-time… but it is also significant energetically. For the next month, we will experience the dominant theme of “balance”, and working to create a harmonious balance in the following: relationships, creativity, action and rest, feminine and masculine energies. Take time today to observe your state of balance and open yourself to making changes. There is great potential for personal transformation, but you need to be willing to let go of what no longer serves you (habits, patterns, fears, objects etc.). This willingness to change and let go accelerates the transformational process, whilst also making it much easier!
With all of this intense energy, unresolved issues (especially those related to relationships) can get pushed to the surface today. If this is the case for you, welcome this as an opportunity to finally heal and release them. Take time for a full healing session (Reiki or other energy) and use today’s energy to create a healthier and more balanced strategy for living more harmoniously.
It’s a great idea to meditate in nature today (really make an effort, as it’s worth it). You can try the following meditation to draw in energy and expand it:
Sit quietly and comfortably, breathing deeply and evenly. As you breathe in, imagine white light entering through your crown chakra (the top of your head) and travelling down to your heart chakra (in the middle of your chest). At the same time, imagine white light travelling up from the Earth, through the 1st chakra, and up to your heart. Simply allow your out-breath to leave your body. Continue to breathe in light from the heavens and the Earth into your heart chakra… see your heart chakra glowing and growing…. expanding with each in-breath. Continue until this white light expands through your aura, and beyond.
If you are a Reiki practitioner, you can place your hands over the heart chakra during this meditation. This meditation is very energising and balancing, and will allow you to really connect with the energy of today.
Here we are, busy within the final season before the winter in the northern hemisphere or the summer in the southern hemisphere. Savour this time of change, and begin to take action to expand, rebalance and grow. There are opportunities for a shift in consciousness today!
Sunday September 24th we finish the week with a high-energy day focused on spiritual practises, creative expression and strong intuition. If you’ve been feeling unfocused, aimless or “all over the place” recently, it’s an excellent day to ground and centre yourself. It’s time to refocus your energy and make progress in implementing strategies and plans. There is also good potential for healing breakthroughs today, so try to take time for full healing session.
Wishing all of you a fantastic week ahead and a wonderful Equinox!
