We have some very exciting days coming up this week, in terms of energy. One highlight is the Autumn Equinox occurring on Wednesday the 23rd (which is also a “22” Master Vibration day). We also have Pluto turning “direct” on Friday and then the big event: The “Super” Full Moon in Aries (the biggest “Super Moon” to occur this year) with a total Lunar Eclipse. This rare combination is also known as a “Blood Moon” due to the reddish colour that the Full Moon takes on during the eclipse. This event occurs in Hong Kong on Monday the 28th in the morning, so unfortunately for those of us who live in this part of the world, we won’t be able to witness this event (although we’ll be able to experience the energy!). For those of you in other parts of the world, you can click on this link for information on viewing the eclipse from wherever you are: http://www.timeanddate.com/eclipse/lunar/2015-september-28 However, please note that in the other areas of the world, the Full Moon and eclipse occur on the 27th. As this is a special event, I’m including it in this week’s Forecast so that have time to prepare, if you choose.
So now let’s take a detailed look at what we can expect during the week:
Monday September 21st we start the week with strong, yet potentially volatile, energy. It is important to stay conscious and aware today so that the energy can be used for positive action: creative expression, inspired action and “fighting the good fight”. If you don’t use the energy wisely, you may find yourself feeling agitated, short-tempered and exhibiting a lack of self-control. So stay active today and focus on using the energy in the most positive and beneficial ways.
Tuesday September 22nd is a high-energy day with the influence being very “Yin” (feminine). This places the emphasis on strong intuition, creative expression and healing. Try starting the day with meditation (even just a few minutes!) so that you are better able to receive guidance and intuitive “flashes”. Your intuition will be especially helpful today in guiding you to bring more harmony to the areas of relationships, personal expression and abundance/prosperity. In terms of healing, much can be healed and released today in terms of old, painful emotional “wounds”. For this reason, it’s a great idea to take time for a full healing session today, either a full Reiki (or other energy) self-treatment or receiving a treatment from a practitioner.
Wednesday September 23rd is a VERY high-energy day when we experience the combination of the Autumn Equinox and “22” Master Vibration Energy. On the day of an Equinox, we have nearly equal amounts of daytime and night-time… but it is also significant energetically. The strong themes of today are “balance and stability”, especially in the areas of relationships, partnerships (both professional and personal), productivity and creativity. This theme is set to continue over the next three months, until we reach the Winter Solstice, so take time today to reflect upon the state of balance within these areas: are the masculine and feminine energies balanced? Are you listening to your intuition in order to create positive changes in these areas? Are you staying balanced and focused in pursuing your goals? Are you opening your heart to others while also maintaining emotional balance and harmony? Are you surrounding yourself with those who are balanced and supportive? The answers to these questions can help you to begin to take action and rebalance, grow and produce a “shift” to the next level.
Bear in mind that today that the influence of “Master Energy” can provide a very powerful “boost” to your activities! 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+3+9+2+0+1+5= 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. If you are a Reiki 2 (or above) practitioner, it’s an especially powerful day to work on your Reiki affirmations.
You can also do a special today for the Autumn Equinox in order to better connect with the energy.
Try to meditate in nature (really make an effort to get out there!), but this meditation can be done anywhere:
Sit quietly and comfortably, breathing deeply and evenly. As you breathe in, imagine white light entering through your crown chakra (the top of your head) and travelling down to your heart chakra (in the middle of your chest). At the same time, imagine white light travelling up from the Earth, through the 1st chakra, and up to your heart. Simply allow your out-breath to leave your body. Continue to breathe in light from the heavens and the Earth into your heart chakra… see your heart chakra glowing and growing…. expanding with each in-breath. Continue until this white light expands through your aura, and beyond. If you are a Reiki practitioner, you can place your hands over the heart chakra during this meditation. This meditation is very energising and balancing, and will allow you to deeply connect with the today’s special energy!
Thursday September 24th is a high-energy day when we will still be feeling some of the effects from yesterday. The “yin” (feminine) energy is flowing strongly, so the intuition will be stronger than usual. Pay attention to any signs as well as your “gut instinct” and expect some “flashes” of inspiration! There is also an emphasis on healing (both self-healing and the healing of others) and service to others. You can continue to work on any issues that may have surfaced over the past couple of days.
Friday September 25th the energy will be strongly supportive in taking action in the areas of transformation and personal power as we experience Pluto turning “direct” after being retrograde since mid-April. Reflect over the past five months: the insights you have gained into your spiritual beliefs and practises as well as transformation etc., are now ready to be put into action. It’s time to gather your strength and will, and focus on overcoming any obstacles and finishing projects that you have been working on during this time.
Saturday September 26th will be the most “laid-back” day of the week. There has been so much activity over the past few days and things are going to be VERY active when we experience the upcoming Super Full Moon, so allow yourself to take things easy today as much as possible.
Sunday September 27th the energy will continue to build during the day as we approach tomorrow’s very powerful Super Full Moon in Aries plus the lunar eclipse. Today you can take time to prepare for tomorrow, perhaps by reflecting upon how you would like to use the very intense energy. Also be aware that today’s energy is very supportive of manifesting your goals as well as any work with the Law of Attraction. Use this energy well by being very clear about what you would like to manifest in your life, down to every detail. 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.
Tonight in Hong Kong we will be celebrating the Mid-Autumn Festival, but I’m including information about tomorrow’s Lunar events for those of you living in countries that will be experiencing them today:
Any Full Moon in Aries carries a strong energy of taking action, especially in the areas of leadership, new beginnings, sexuality and “warriorship”. At this time, reflect upon these areas and what changes you can make in order to fully express the most positive aspects of them in your life. Perhaps introducing more stability and productivity into these areas will assist!
The energy of the lunar eclipse acts to strongly enhance the aspects and effects of this Full Moon, as well as adding an element of “service towards others” (especially taking action together with others in order to help others). Ask yourself what you can do in order to get more involved and make a difference!
This particular “Super” Moon is a very special one, as it will be the closest one to the Earth of the entire year! Not only will the Moon appear to be much larger in the sky than usual, but the energetic effects are said to be that much more intense due to this proximity. The intuition will be especially powerful, so make sure you set aside time for meditation and pay attention to any “signs” or intuitive flashes.
You can also try the following Full Moon meditation in order to actively work with the energy:
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.
It’s also a good idea to get together with friends to experience the special energy! You can do a group meditation, or even just enjoy an evening meal ‘al fresco’. Appreciate the Moon, and feel a sense of gratitude for the beauty of nature, and the love from those around us.
There are also some in the media who are talking about this “Super” Full Moon as being a sign of the apocalypse, or an opportunity to greatly raise one’s vibration. Personally, I don’t buy into the “fear culture” of an impending apocalypse. Besides the logical reasons for this, living in fear does nothing but attract more fear and lower one’s energy levels and vibration. And whether or not you believe that this is an opportunity for a great shift in consciousness, you can still get a lot of enjoyment from spiritual practises today: meditation, Reiki, yoga, tai chi, qigong etc.
Wishing all of you a magical and positive week ahead!
