DECEMBER/JANUARY 2009 NUMEROLOGY WATCH – YEAR END…


It’s December 2009.  Whew!  How’d ya’ll enjoy November!  Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!

As we wind down the year 2009, it is a good time to make changes and set the pace for the next year to begin.   Mercury goes retrograde the day after Christmas and stays retrograde until Jan 15th.  December and January will be about balance between friends, socializing and adventure with responsibility and planning. 

December itself should feel like a bit of relief as we end the year, as spiritual lessons and challenges are reduced over all.  However one last kick back of the lessons of the master number 11 will take place before we say goodbye to 2009 forever.  I expect this will affect the US leadership as this energy compounds our president’s and vice president’s life lessons. 

Shop early and wisely this season, but include some spontaneity as well.  When those opportunities arise to let down your hair, don’t ignore them.  It’s been a tough year.  Be wise, but have some fun and salve some wounds.  Friendships play an important role both as stress release and in helping us make decisions.  There will be an important decision and evaluation to be made before the end of the year is done.  And it may just resolve itself over the holiday.  All the better if you are able to take some time off during the holiday to sort things out.   Don’t forsake the fun, it plays an important role in this process.  Yes, this month you can have your cake and eat it too, if you remember the key word – BALANCE.

As we slip into January, master number energy significantly drops off except for the master number 22, which makes it’s presence known and compounds the US’s current 22 cycle.  January begins with Mercury in retrograde, but the emphasis will turn to the new year’s energies.  Leadership and responsibility start the year off, though expect some delays in process.  Though some energies give us a break for a while, there is an arch of influence that is rather long in January – 10 days actually.  I expect to see issues involving law and government to play pivotal roles during this time.  It is also a good time to exercise your networking and family building skills.  Foundations are not just about getting organized, it’s also about beginning, renewing and building relationships and partnerships.  Do not get so stuck in the head that the heart suffers!  And if you’ve been so busy trying to survive that you’ve left off some simple courtesies when it comes to friendship and love, it’s time to take a deep breath and Live.  December’s energies give you the perfect lead in for this by giving you the social opportunities, or at least setting the energy to make it work for you should you choose to seize the moment.  Again I say, the end of this year sets the course for next year.   2010 will bring new challenges in the arenas of career, reputation, karma, service and responsibility.  Start preparing now as if the new year has already begun, if you haven’t heeded my advice yet.  It’s not too late.

I would like to note folks, that on December 21, please be careful while driving on this day.  Whether you are traveling, or just going to work, plan for extra time on the road and be prepared to be patient with others.  This is a day we all really need to be as “zen” as possible on the roads and certainly not take anything personal on the roads either.  When I see this kind of stress pattern fall like this on a Monday, much less surrounded by a bunch of other energies, I see far more car accidents in the Austin area.  It may not be like this everywhere, but I expect it will likely be on this date.  Some could argue that the energy of traveling and looking forward to seeing friends and family could shift more typical daily impatience on the road, but I’m not sure that it will.  I expect traffic on the big highways, especially metro areas, to be at a high.  There will likely be flight delays too, so just keep it in mind and plan plenty of time.  Get there safe!

  1. Hi Julia!

    Since Dec. 31 is a full moon, blue moon, 13th moon of the year, and it’s going to be a partial lunar eclipse… What is the significance and how can it be honored?

    Best regards,
    Tasha

    • Hi Tasha, 😀

      Thanks for your question and your visit to the blog! I’ll do my best to answer from my perspective as a numerologist, but you may also wish to check on it from an astrologer’s point of view or reference natural magic sources. I will share some of my viewpoint of what this time currently brings.

      Most of what I write on my blogs is in reference to where numerology and other events coincide or “collide.” Numerologically, New Year’s Eve is a great day for meditation and spiritual pursuits. And certainly, with every end and beginning of a year, moon or month, it is a good time to set intentions.

      Also, there are always either 13 full moons or 13 new moons from winter solstice to winter solstice. And it is true that Dec 31st will be the 2nd full moon in December. However being a 2nd full moon in a month is not necessarily a true “Blue Moon.” The idea that two moons within the same month a Blue Moon make, is actually only as recent as 1946 when Sky and Telescope Magazine mis-interpreted the Maine Farmer’s Almanac. According to the Farmer’s Almanac, a Blue Moon is actually the 3rd full moon within a season of four full moons. In spite of trying to publish a correction, it wasn’t done until some years down the road and the mistake has stuck ever since.

      So operating from that perspective – astrologically, numerologically, or even from a natural magic standpoint – Dec 31st is in fact the 1st full moon of the winter season and can not qualify as a true Blue Moon.

      That being said, being a partial lunar eclipse on New Year’s Eve when the year is shifting into something new, and during a Mercury Retrograde, does bring its impact. It doesn’t play out numerologically in the way I look for significant patterns, but it is its own rite of passage. On top of that, as I always emphasize, what people in mass focus on does bring about a reality. If the “world” focuses on the date as significant as a “Blue Moon” then there will be some special energy to it by the sheer force of law that governs manifestation.

      The beginning of this year is like a hesitant step back before it makes its actual step forward. New Year’s Eve of 2009 – numerologically the first 11 year in 99 years coming to a close – with its eclipse and under mercury retrograde – is a good time to end the year in reflection. To go back over what we have seen, heard, been through and make an accounting for it. It’s a good time for some subtle evaluation as well, but essentially, focus and honor given to each and every thing, whether perceived as positive or negative. That there be no waste. That every moment of this year was of impact and importance for this point in our evolution as a spiritual race. It is important to remember, to look back over our lives and reflect. It is important to pick up the unanswered questions and slate them for exploration. It is important to realize that every circumstance had importance this year and sets the stage for the future to come. It is important to look over our choices and evaluate their potential. As every major religion and philosophy in the world urges, we must slow down, take our time, go within and listen before we move. It is time to look back and recapture, tie puzzle pieces together and set aside those we haven’t figured out yet for future consideration. Share memories, joy and even pain; release that which needs to be released and embrace Life and its true purpose. I expect New Year Eve 2009 is meant to be as a moment that stands still in Time. Whether all will hear the cry remains to be seen.

      For additional inspiration at this time, you might also be interested in looking into information on the 13th zodiacal constellation in the Zulu culture – that of the Whale (Umkhomo). It is considered holy and rules between December 28 and January 6. People born during this time are considered blessed and meant for sacred work in the world.

      I hope this information is useful to you. Since this is pretty long and the comment sections on the blog are not readily visible in all views, and since others may also find this interesting, I will copy this info into an additional post for their benefit as well.

      Blessings and Happy New Year!
      Julia
