This week, the theme of relationships and healing continues, as we have more energy cycles beginning that further support this process. The theme of transformation is also a dominant one. The highlights of the week include the Full Moon in Taurus on Wednesday and a “Master” energy day on Sunday, so there is great potential for change and empowerment! So now let’s take a detailed look at the week ahead, what to expect and how to make the most of the energy:
Monday October 22nd the week begins with a high-energy day as we experience the peak of the energy cycle that started last Wednesday, focused on healing (especially within committed relationships). For your self-healing, focus on healing/releasing any issues or past hurts related to relationships. Within committed relationships, open, patient and compassionate communication is essential when discussing what adjustments or changes can be made on both sides in order to bring about a greater state of balance and harmony. This type of communication is also important if you’re providing healing to others during this time.
One more aspect to this energy-cycle is increasing the flow of wealth into your life. Take action within your work, and also take time daily (at least 10-15 minutes) to sit quietly and visualise your prosperity goals in their completed form. Use as many senses as possible and truly intend that each goal is now achieved. If you’re a Reiki 2 (or above) practitioner, this is an especially powerful time to work on any prosperity/abundance Reiki affirmations that you may have.
Tuesday October 23rd the energy will be supportive in reflecting upon the following so that you can be mindful of creating a state of transformation in these areas over the next month: strengthening and following your intuition, expressing your true self with others, the amount of energy you put into both your personal and professional relationships (is it fair and balanced?), and your approach to taking care of practical issues such as money management, taxes and insurance.
Wednesday October 24th is a high-energy day when we experience the Full Moon in Taurus. Any Full Moon is a good time to reflect on your current state of life and progress since the last Full Moon in order to make the appropriate changes/adjustments necessary for future progress and growth. The “earthy” influence of Taurus places extra emphasis on the areas of finances, personal possessions, connection to nature, perseverance and self-esteem. What can you release, or what changes or adjustments can you make in these areas in order to live a more balanced and empowered life? Listen to your intuition and allow it to guide you in this process.
This Full Moon in energy is wonderful for artistic and creative inspiration. This particular Full Moon is also especially supportive in the area of relationship healing and transformation, especially in committed partnerships. Communicate with each other about any issues and how both of you can work together in the process of healing and releasing these. It’s also a time of greater clarity in evaluating all significant relationships: notice which ones empower you and lift you up and which ones drag you down… it’s time to release those that drain you or hold you back from reaching your full potential.
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.
Thursday October 25th we’ll still be feeling the strong energy of yesterday’s Full Moon, combined with the beginning of a 4-week energy cycle focused primarily on healing within partnerships, especially romantic ones. This energy cycle is also supportive of teaching, guidance and creative expression. Hopefully you have already been working on this healing aspect, as it’s been a dominant theme recently. If not, then begin today and make the most of this energy!
Friday October 26th expect intuition and inspiration to be strong, so be prepared to take action on new ideas and inspiration received. There will also be an emphasis on transformation, especially in the areas of relationships, finances and creativity. If you’ve been reflecting upon these areas and have ideas about bringing about positive transformation in them, today is a good one for putting them into action. One word of caution: when dealing with others today, make sure you listen to your intuition (or “gut instinct”) in order to avoid being advantage of.
Saturday October 27th we can look forward to a day of positive, steady and supportive energy throughout the day. Although this energy can be applied to any activity today, it is especially good for spiritual practises, increasing the flow of prosperity and abundance, and working on the process of personal transformation.
Sunday October 28th the week finishes with 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+8+1+0+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. In keeping with the current energy cycles, goals related to prosperity and abundance are strongly supported. 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 we have another 4-week energy cycle beginning that is focused on committed partnerships. This cycle has the potential to highlight any unresolved issues, which in itself can be difficult to handle. However, the point of this energy is to allow you to take your relationship to a wonderful, new level by facing these issues together, resolving them and moving forward in a positive and empowered way. Honest, open communication from the heart is very important in this process, so express yourself patiently, clearly and with love.
Wishing all of you a wonderful week ahead!
