This week the big highlight is the New Moon in Aquarius on Tuesday, marking the start of a New Lunar Year. In addition to this, we also have a day of Master Energy, the peak of two energy-cycles and good opportunities for manifesting your goals. The energy will be very active and quite powerful at times, so make sure that you consciously use the energy in a positive way otherwise you may feel agitated, restless or “all over the place”. If this is the case, take time for a grounding exercise (walking barefoot is the simplest!), and reflect upon how you can best use the energy for growth and positive action. For Reiki practitioners, you can ground yourself effectively by applying Reiki to the first chakra, legs and soles of the feet. With that, let’s take a detailed look at the week coming up, what to expect and how to make the best use of the energy:
Monday February 4th we will still be feeling the effects of yesterday’s energy-cycle peak (although not as intensely), with continued support for making important decisions, taking strategic action and supporting a higher cause. The intuition remains strong, so pay attention to your inner-voice and any flashes of inspiration or “signs”. I would also like to note that depending on where you live, today you will also experience the New Moon.

Tuesday February 5th is a high-energy day when we experience the New Moon in Aquarius, which ushers in the Lunar New Year. So, it’s goodbye to the year of the dog and welcome to the year of the Pig! I will be posting my Yearly Forecast with full details of what to expect in this Pig Year, as well as what Western astrology and numerology predict, in the coming days. For now, let’s focus on this current New Moon and the energies it brings.
Any New Moon is an ideal time for new beginnings and fresh starts, but the influence of Aquarius (which is ruled by the Air element) places extra emphasis on the following: using your special talents or abilities to assist others, following your intuition, and living your life with authenticity, passion and truly letting your unique character shine. The Air element of Aquarius is all about the intellect, learning and communication. Make sure that you do something useful and solid with your ideas and inspiration, rather than just being “all talk”, daydreaming or over-thinking. Perhaps you can share useful information with others, or delve more deeply into an area of study that interests you.
There is great potential in the energy today, and to more fully connect with it 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 Aquarius 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.
This energy today is also very supportive of the Law of Attraction, helping you to manifest your goals faster. Use whichever method of intention/visualisation that you prefer, whether it’s Reiki 2 affirmations, Law of Attraction or any other technique for manifesting goals. Remember that the intuition will be very strong today, bringing flashes of inspiration and guidance, so pay attention and use this guidance as a means of focusing on what actions can be taken (especially in the areas of finance, creativity and relationships) in order to create a more positive and fulfilling future.
One word of warning for today: the intense energy can have the effect of triggering old, emotional wounds. If this is the case for you, take time to reflect upon it, rather than avoiding or “swallowing” your emotions. Find the root cause, acknowledge the past hurts, and focus on healing and releasing. Reiki and other healing techniques can be immensely helpful with this process.
Wednesday February 6th we’ll still be feeling the positive energetic effects from yesterday’s New Moon. There is great support for creativity and inspiration, spiritual practises, and manifesting your goals using your preferred method of intention/visualisation. Make sure you set aside for manifesting your goals by sitting quietly and visualising 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.
Thursday February 7th is a high-energy day when we experience the peak of the 3-week energy-cycle that started on January 26th, focused on strategy-making, practical creativity, wisdom and developing more tact and better negotiating skills. The intuition will be strong, so allow it to guide you in the areas that you would like to strengthen. Make sure that your actions are in harmony with your higher purpose, and take practical action. Physical vitality is also strongly supported, so it’s a great day for taking action, or enjoying physical activities (especially outdoors, weather permitting).
Friday February 8th 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 (8+2+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.
Saturday February 9th is a high-energy day when we experience the peak of the 6-week energy-cycle that started on January 7th, focused on creating strategies and putting them into action, as well as bringing healing to committed partnerships. It’s very positive energy for making a good start to this Lunar New Year, so stay focused and apply the energy where it’s needed. In addition to this energy cycle, today the intuition will be stronger than usual, so allow it to guide you in thinking big and bringing a greater harmony in living your life according to your higher purpose.
Sunday February 10th we finish the week with a day of gentle, flowing energy. After such an active week, you may welcome the chance to just relax and take it easy. It’s definitely a day to just “go with the flow”! Enjoy the day, and avoid any type of rushing around, if possible.
Wishing all of you a wonderful week and a fulfilling, vibrant and positive Year of the Pig!
