We have a week of strong energy coming up, the highlights being the Capricorn Full Moon on Tuesday and a Master Energy day on Sunday. Throughout the week we will experience strong “Yin” (feminine) energy, details of which I have included in Monday’s forecast. Suffice to say, there is a huge emphasis on staying grounded and taking practical action in order to balance and strengthen different areas of your life. If you would like to work on your grounding, I have included lots of practical information in the following article: http://www.healingfire.com/tips-for-grounding/ and you can also try my free, guided meditation for Grounding and Energising here: http://www.healingfire.com/mp3/ So now let’s take a detailed look at what we can expect this week:
Monday July 18th we start the week with a high-energy day that sets the tone for the entire week. The key theme is balancing and integrating the feminine aspects and energies of the self (no matter whether you are male or female). These aspects include the following: staying grounded (connected to “female” Earth energy) and strengthening focus and self-discipline, creating strategies, expressing creativity in practical ways, increasing abundance and bringing a state of balance to relationships.
Reflect upon all of these areas and identify those which you need to strengthen and then take clear steps to do so. The relationship theme is quite dominant, specifically the area of nurturing and being nurtured. Is there a state of balance in your relationships? Do you give more than you receive, or vice versa? Do you nurture those around you while still making sure that you are fulfilled? The answers to these questions can assist you in creating balance in relationships of all types.
Tuesday July 19th is a high-energy day when we have the Full Moon in Capricorn. Any Full Moon is the perfect time for reflecting upon “where you’re at” in different areas of life and then making changes where appropriate. The “Earthy” quality of Capricorn makes this Full Moon an ideal time for being practical, to take a step back and reflect upon the state of the following areas of life: self-discipline, personal responsibility, creating and following strategies in order to achieve goals and managing time wisely.
If you would like to actively use today’s energy, a Full Moon meditation is an effective way to do so. 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 ways:
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 also use any preferred method of sending Reiki.
In addition to the energetic themes mentioned above, there are additional “boosts” of energy in the area of creating a greater sense of balance in your committed relationships (a continuation of what we experienced yesterday), as well as in manifesting your goals. If you do any work with the Law of Attraction, it’s a great day to do so. If you’re a Reiki 2 (or above) practitioner, make sure to set aside time to work with your Reiki affirmations.
Wednesday July 20th we have some great energy flowing in the areas of creativity, relationships and finance, supporting us in creating greater stability. If you haven’t already taken time this week to reflect upon these areas and what practical steps you can take to strengthen them, then it’s a great idea to do so today. Today’s energy pushes us to be productive, so use the energy well!
Thursday July 21st the energy will be flowing strongly in the area of creativity and creative self-expression. If you’ve been keeping your creativity to yourself or have been reluctant to delve into this area, today is a wonderful day to let go and let your creative side shine for all to see!
Friday July 22nd we have a day of bright, active energy. It’s a day of enjoyment, creative thinking and open self-expression. This element of speaking the truth is very freeing, so if you’ve been keeping things bottled up, it’s a great day to open up and let it flow!
Saturday July 23rd we can expect a day of gentle, flowing energy. Take it easy today as much as possible and just “go with the flow”. The energy will be much more active tomorrow, so you should think about saving the action for then.
Sunday July 24th is a day of strong, active 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 (2+4+7+2+0+1+6= 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). 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.
Additionally, there is also plenty of energy supporting us in improving finances and relationships through making changes and taking different approaches.
Wishing all of you a positive and productive week ahead!
