We have a very active week ahead, with great potential for action, change and healing. The big highlight of the week is the combination of the New Moon with solar eclipse energy that will be felt over Thursday and Friday. Friday also marks the beginning of the Lunar New Year, so I will be posting my special Forecast about this within the next few days. We also have a Master Energy day on Sunday! Remember that with all of this intense energy coming up, it is important to stay balanced and grounded in order to make the most of it, otherwise you can end up feeling agitated, overly-sensitive or “all over the place”. There is so much great potential this week, so let’s take a detailed look at what to expect and how to best use the energy:
Monday February 12th we begin the week with a day of active energy and strong intuition, so it’s a good time to act upon any intuitive guidance or flashes of intuition. It’s also a good idea to reflect upon what changes you can make to any routines in life, as this can inject fresh energy into them. One warning for today, though: the energy can cause those who are unbalanced to become overly-sensitive and easy to anger, so make sure you avoid people and situations that have the potential to “blow up”.
Tuesday February 13th we experience the first of an eight-day cycle of energy that is focused on the following areas: strengthening committed partnerships, using your talents and energy in working towards a higher cause (charitable work, mentorship etc.), as well as healing old emotional wounds that may get triggered or “pushed to the surface” during this energy cycle. In addition, you may also experience an increase in finances due to your hard work… a reward for your persistence! Although there will be other energetic influences going on over the next eight days, keep in mind that this cycle of energy will be a dominant theme.
Wednesday February 14th we can expect a positive flow of energy in the area of communication. Express yourself honestly and from the heart in order to make the most of this energy.
Thursday February 15th is a VERY high-energy day when we experience the New Moon in Aquarius. Technically, the peak of this New Moon occurs in Hong Kong in the early hours of the 16th, which heralds the start of the Lunar New Year. There is also a solar eclipse (visible only in Antarctica) coinciding with this New Moon, so the energetic effects of this will “super charge” the energy of the New Moon and will be felt strongly both today and tomorrow.
Any New Moon is a great time for new beginnings and fresh starts, but the influence of Aquarius places extra emphasis on the areas of being “true” to yourself and others, following your intuition, and helping others through using your unique talents. Feminine energy is also empowered, and there is great potential for healing any relationships issues/imbalances, addressing financial problems and clearing creative blockages.
A great way to more fully connect with today’s New Moon energy is through 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 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 sending Reiki by distance in order to connect with the Moon and its energy. In this way, you can tap directly into these lunar energies.
Friday February 16th is a VERY high-energy day that marks the beginning of the Lunar New Year. Happy Year of the Dog! Today we can expect a continuation of the powerful energy that I wrote about in yesterday’s forecast: the potent combination of the Aquarius New Moon fired-up by the energy of the solar eclipse.
Saturday February 17th is a high-energy day when we experience the peak of the 8-day energy cycle that I wrote about in my forecast for Tuesday the 13th. Please refer to that forecast for information on how to best use the energy today.
Sunday February 18th we finish the week with a day of VERY high-energy! 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+2+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 (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.
As this energy will be quite strong, it is important to keep busy and actively use it otherwise you may find yourself feeling agitated or irritable. Don’t let the strong energy manifest in these negative ways… use the energy to your advantage, instead!
Wishing all of you a powerful, productive and positive week ahead!
