This week we can expect some powerful energy on Monday and especially Tuesday when we experience a powerful combination of the New Moon, Master Energy, the start of a 3-week cycle of healing PLUS the beginning of what is considered in astrology to be a very important event: the beginning of a 7-year cycle in which Uranus enters Taurus. This can produce significant changes, so here are some points to bear in mind in order to make the most of this shift: follow your intuition in your daily life, express your true self in all areas of life (even if it’s unconventional!), reassess your relationship with money and material possessions (rather than focusing on accumulating wealth, think about how you can create a more fulfilling life through doing what you love), and strengthen or re-awaken your awareness and connection to nature and the Earth itself. With that, let’s take a detailed look at the week ahead, what to expect and how to make the most of the energy:
Monday May 14th is the last day of the 2-week cycle of energy supporting the increase of prosperity and abundance, as well as personal transformation, so make the most of the potential in the following ways: be aware of potential opportunities that will increase the flow of wealth and abundance into your life, and take time to visualise your abundance/prosperity goals in their completed forms using your preferred technique. 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. When applied to the spiritual area of life, today’s energy is wonderful for “awakening” personal transformation through spiritual practises. I recommend starting the day with meditation so that you are better able to receive guidance on how and where to best apply the energy.
Tuesday May 15th is a VERY high-energy day when we experience the potent combination of the New Moon and “Master” energy. Today is also significant because it marks the beginning of a special 3-week cycle of energy that is focused on healing, taking action that supports the greater good, and creating transformation and change in your life through facing challenges. Any New Moon is a great time for fresh starts and new beginnings, but the influence of Taurus places extra emphasis on the areas of the material, finances, physical enjoyment, focus and persistence and “being in the now”. 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 Aries 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.
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+5+5+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 use this opportunity! 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.
Remember that today also marks the beginning of the 7-year cycle of Uranus entering Taurus, as mentioned earlier.
Wednesday May 16th today it is important to remember to remain balanced, focused and calm today, as yesterday’s intense energy has the potential to “stir up” issues. If you find yourself feeling agitated or if your “buttons are being pushed”, try to take a step back and recognise the root cause of these triggers. From this perspective, you can see what you need to change, heal and release. You can also stay focused by making a “to-do” list (but not an overwhelming one!) and going through each task one-by-one.
Thursday May 17th the energy should be much more settled, giving us a day of gentle, flowing energy. Rather than trying to accomplish many tasks today, only take on what you can comfortably handle and don’t push yourself too hard.
Friday May 18th we can expect a day of rather “low-key” energy. For some, this means a day of gently flowing energy (as with yesterday). However, for others this energy can cause one to feel a bit “down” or in a somewhat negative frame of mind. If you find yourself experiencing this, avoid making any important decisions and instead focus only on what needs to be accomplished today. I also recommend “grounding” your energy through whatever method you prefer. It can be as simple as taking a walk in nature (even just taking a walk in a park), going barefoot outdoors or doing a grounding meditation. If you are a Reiki practitioner, you can also ground yourself by applying Reiki to the first chakra, legs and feet.
Saturday May 19th the energy should be “lighter” than yesterday, making a good start to the weekend. It’s a great day for socialising and sharing this brighter energy, so be sure to make some plans with friends. The intuition will be stronger than usual today, so pay attention to your “gut instinct” and allow it to guide you.
Sunday May 20th we finish the week with a day perfectly suited to resting, relaxing and recharging yourself for the week ahead. It’s not a day for rushing around or strenuous physical activity, so allow yourself to just let go and take it easy. If you are a Reiki (or other energy) practitioner, take time for a full self-treatment so that you are balanced, recharged and ready for the week. Today there is also great support for all spiritual practises an activities.
Wishing all of you a positive week ahead!
