After needing to take some time off, I’m happy to share my first forecast of the year with all of you. We have a very positive week ahead to look forward to, with great opportunities for creating strategies and goals, taking action, making big changes and increasing the flow of abundance and prosperity. With yesterday’s New Moon, as well as Uranus turning “direct”, we have a big push of active energy that sets up a week of great potential! Make an effort to consciously use this energy in order to create a fantastic start to 2019… leading to a year of growth and success. So let’s take a detailed look at the week ahead and how to use the energy in the most advantageous way:
Monday January 7th a new week begins with a high-energy day when we experience the beginning of a 6-week energy cycle 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 the 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.
I will also mention here that yesterday we experienced the event of Uranus turning “direct” after being retrograde since the beginning of last August. During a period of Uranus in retrograde, an especially strong effect is an awakening, or re-awakening, of a desire to break free of any restrictions, confines or stagnant areas of life. If you found yourself experiencing this, it was advisable to examine the situation carefully and then create a clear strategy for breaking free and moving forward. However, it is better to wait until Uranus turns “direct” again before actually putting the plan into action. So now is the time to take action!
Remember that the influence of Uranus also encourages us to listen to our intuition and “walk our talk”, as well as supporting us in using our talents in a way that brings us (and others) joy and fulfillment. If you’ve been experiencing difficulties in these areas, it’s a clear indication that some big changes need to be made. Now is the time to let go of what no longer serves your higher purpose in order to stride into 2019 with purpose and power.
Tuesday January 8th we have a second high-energy day as another special energy cycle begins. This one lasts for 2 weeks and is focused on breaking free of limitations (self-imposed or otherwise) and really letting your true-self shine. Don’t be afraid of being different! Listen to your intuition, release anything that doesn’t serve your highest good, and connect more fully with your true power. Continue with the “Uranus direct” theme of living your life in harmony with your higher purpose. However, in taking action in the areas just mentioned, remember to create a strategy with clear goals, and also remember to be diplomatic in dealing with others. Don’t allow yourself to get drawn into pointless arguments or to be angered with others, as this is a waste of energy and may also hinder your progress. If someone is trying to limit you or prevent you from making the changes that you need in your life, it’s sometimes a lot better to just walk away and let go.
Wednesday January 9th we experience another day of high-energy as experience the first “Master Energy” day of the 2019. According to numerology this day has special energetic significance because the numbers of today’s date add up to the “Master Number” of 22 (9+1+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.
In addition to this Master Energy, keep in mind that the intuition will be stronger than usual today, so pay attention to your inner-voice and any “flashes” of inspiration.
Thursday January 10th we get a bit of a break with some “quieter” energy today. The energy should be gentle and flowing, so it’s best used by working on current tasks or projects rather starting new ones. The active energy this week may have put you in the mood of wanting to accomplish many tasks, but today it is better to just “go with the flow” as much as possible.
Friday January 11th the energy will be active and very supportive in increasing the flow of wealth, abundance, and empowering energy into your life. However, this is only possible by creating the “space” to receive, through releasing everything that no longer serves your highest good. Take time to think about the following areas and what you can/need to release:
Relationships of any type that are toxic, “bring you down” or are stagnant
Possessions: sell, donate or give (or try to recycle, if you must throw something away)
Habits: any activity or pattern that doesn’t benefit or enrich you, or you or wastes your time
Though-patterns: self-limiting, negative or “old” ways of thinking about yourself, your abilities and your potential
By taking the time to reflect upon each of these areas and what you may release, you can start using this transformative energy and begin benefiting from it!
Saturday January 12th we can expect the energy to be bright and somewhat active. Although it won’t be as strong as the energy we’ve been experiencing on other days this week, it’s a good day to work on tasks or to take part in enjoyable activities. Just remember to communicate clearly and calmly, and don’t allow yourself to get into arguments. With all of the active energy this week, in can cause one to feel agitated or easily-angered if the energy isn’t balanced or grounded.
Sunday January 13th is a high-energy day when we experience the peak of the energy-cycle that started a couple of weeks ago on December 22nd, 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.
Wishing all of you a productive, powerful and positive week ahead!
