In the week ahead there are a few high-energy days coming up, but this energy shouldn’t be stressful or frantic. Rather, it indicates lots of supportive energy available in many different areas (as long as we choose to consciously use it). The highlights of the week include Saturn turning “direct” on Thursday, after being retrograde since April. We also have the New Moon in Virgo coming up on Sunday. The key to making this week a constructive and positive one is “focus”! There are many possibilities for channelling your efforts, so choose the area(s) that you’d like to work on and then be mindful of your focus. With that, let’s take a detailed look at the week ahead, what to expect and how to make the most of it:
Monday September 3rd the week begins with a focus on healing and communication. With regards to healing, this can be applied to the following areas where there are unresolved issues or blockages: relationships, sexuality, creative expression, finances and assertiveness. It can be helpful to meditate on these areas and any unresolved issues/blockages in order to more clearly understand the root cause(s). With this awareness, you can then create a strategy for healing and releasing. It is important to be open to making changes or adjustments, and to communicate with clarity and compassion (especially when dealing with relationship issues). If you are a Reiki (or other healing energy) practitioner, it can be very helpful to apply Reiki to yourself during this meditation: over the throat, heart, naval and/or root chakra… wherever you feel most drawn to place the hands.
Regarding self-expression today, the areas of harmonious communication and creative expression (creative writing or other forms of creative expression) are strongly supported.
Tuesday September 4th we experience the start of a 10-day cycle of energy that can be either challenging or empowering, depending on how you choose to use it. One the challenging side, there can be a tendency for impulsive (and negative) actions, as well as retreating into pointless thoughts and behaviour rather than putting your attention where it is needed in the physical world “in the now”. However, by choosing to be aware and using the energy consciously, it can be a time of growth in the areas of healing, service to others and personal awareness. The intuition will be stronger than usual during this time, so allow it to guide you in what actions to take. By rising to the challenge of “being in the now” (because it is a challenge to do this consistently), you can learn much about yourself, your actions and motivations, and therefore grow.
Wednesday September 5th is a high-energy day with the focus on increasing the flow of abundance into your life through partnerships with others, as well as healing. The healing aspect is related to working on your own issues, as well as assisting others in their process of healing. If you are a Reiki (or other energy) practitioner, it’s a great idea to take time to treat yourself as well as offering your assistance to others. The only potentially tricky area today is communication: be mindful of how you speak to others today so that rather than communicating with anger or aggression, you express yourself with lightness.
Thursday September 6th is a high-energy day when we experience Saturn turning “direct” after being retrograde since April 17th. The period of Saturn retrograde was one in which to reflect upon the themes of responsibility, self-discipline, maturity and managing one’s time well. It is essential to identify any problems or weaknesses in these areas and then work on correcting them, otherwise progress may be very slow or difficult. Saturn retrograde was also the time in which to reassess commitments and current projects, focusing your energy on current responsibilities and dealing with what currently needs to be dealt with.
With Saturn turning “direct”, whatever plans you’ve been making or pondering since April are now ready to be put into action! Take responsibility, make strategies and create a clear schedule for implementation. You should also think about what habits and methods you need to change in order to do this. It’s also a great time to think about how you can do more in terms of service to others and to assess “where you’re at” on your healing path. Ask yourself what actions you can take NOW in order to further yourself on this path of healing, both for yourself and for others.
Friday September 7th is a high-energy day with lots of positive energy flowing in the following areas: practical thinking, inspired communication and creativity, creating strategies and getting organised, and also healing/releasing old, emotional wounds. There is great potential with today’s energy, so choose the area(s) you would like to work on and then consciously use the energy to make the most of it!
Saturday September 8th is a high-energy day when we experience the peak of the energy cycle that started on August 21st focused on creating strategies, practical action, practical creativity and listening to your intuition related to these areas. We also have energy similar to what we experienced on Monday (please see Monday’s forecast for details), with an emphasis on communication and healing. In addition to this, today is also the peak of the energy cycle that started on Tuesday the 4th (again, please refer to that forecast for details). Again, there is so much potential in today’s energy, so it is important to choose the areas on which you wish to focus and then really go for it!
Sunday September 9th the week finishes with another high-energy day as we experience the New Moon in Virgo. Any New Moon is a good time for new beginnings, bu the influence of Virgo places extra emphasis on the areas of healing, service to others, organising, and making adjustments or positive changes in these areas. To more fully connect with this energy, 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 Virgo 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.
In addition to this Virgo New Moon energy, today there is also lots of energy available to empower the following areas: spiritual awakening and growth, healing, creative expression, and making positive changes or adjustments in relationships and finances.
Wishing all of you a wonderful week ahead!
