This week we have an interesting mix of energy. There are good opportunities for sorting out practical aspects and issues, as well as opportunities for healing and spiritual growth. The highlights of the week include a “Master Energy” day on Tuesday and the Full Moon in Pisces on Sunday. So let’s take a detailed look at the week ahead, what to expect and how to make the most of the energy:
Monday August 20th the week begins with a day of energy focused on two areas: areas needing healing being highlighted, and sorting out financial issues. Regarding healing, pay attention to any people or events that “press your buttons” (especially any relationship difficulties). The root cause of your reaction indicates what issue(s) need healing/releasing. Remember that any challenges indicate areas that need to be healed so that we may experience further personal and spiritual growth. Regarding finances, pay attention to any money matters that require your attention. It could be that you need to exercise better self-discipline in this area, or it may be that you can benefit from seeking the advice of others who are knowledgeable in this area.
Tuesday August 21st 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 (2+1+8+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. 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 marks the beginning of a 5-week cycle of energy focused on creating strategies, practical action, practical creativity and listening to your intuition related to these areas. One word of warning: today’s intense energy can cause one to feel agitated or easily-angered when one’s energy isn’t balanced or grounded, or if one isn’t actively using the energy. To avoid this, make sure that you are balanced, and make sure to use the energy in a positive way. Stay active and focus on keeping a positive attitude!
Wednesday August 22nd we can expect the energy to be active, with a continuation of yesterday’s theme of consciously using this energy in positive ways. Any activities that serve your highest good as well as the good of others are especially supported.
Thursday August 23rd the energy today has the potential to be quite mixed. One one hand, there is potential for problems and misunderstandings with communication, so make sure that you express yourself clearly and also make sure that you understand others clearly (listen and ask questions, rather than making assumptions or jumping to conclusions). On the other hand, there is also great potential today in sharing your experiences, ideas and wisdom in order to assist others in their process of transformation. So the key here is being conscious of communicating in the most positive and empowering manner. In addition to this theme of communication, the energy today is also very supportive for healing practises. If you are a Reiki (or other healing energy) practitioner, take time for a self-treatment or arrange to receive a treatment from a practitioner, as you can achieve better-than-usual results today!
Friday August 24th the areas of creativity and inspiration and empowered today. Whether it’s in your personal and professional life (or both!), it’s time to express yourself creatively. Listen to your inner-voice and allow it to guide you in doing so.
Saturday August 25th is a high-energy day when the intuition will be stronger than usual and the energy harmonious and supportive in the areas of bringing balance to work/life, taking care of practical issues, and feeling inspired and energised in your spiritual practises. Allow yourself to be guided by your intuition in all of these areas. I recommend starting the day with meditation so that you are better able to receive intuitive guidance and inspiration throughout the day.
Sunday August 26th we finish the week with a high-energy day as we experience the Full Moon in Pisces. Any Full Moon is a good time to “take stock” of how you’ve been doing since the previous Full Moon, but the influence of Pisces places extra emphasis on releasing, changing or making adjustments in the areas of creativity, spiritual practises and dream work in order to bring about a greater state of harmony and empowerment. The intuition will be especially strong today, so pay attention to your inner-voice and allow it to guide you in working on the areas mentioned. Remember that we are still experiencing grounded, feminine energy, so this can assist you in creating strategies and putting your Full Moon goals into action!
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.
Wishing all of you a positive and empowered week ahead!
