I’ve been recently asked about 11-11-2011. And it’s the 3rd time I’ve been interviewed by a newspaper about number patterns in dates.  Instead of spending time on this in the current newsletter, I encourage you to read my previous articles on the subject.  Yes, 11-11 is special every year, as is November.  No, this year does not mean what you think.

The Answer Is No

What Is The Significance of 9-29-2009

American Red Cross WWI Poster

The Greatest Mother

As we move into November, our nation’s month of Thanksgiving and Gratitude, the energies of the Divine Mother and Lady Justice become present with us.  Their images are expressed to me through memories of old paintings I remember seeing as a child at the local American Red Cross. My message is for the Enlightened. This is the way to channel this energy.  If not, negative and emotional this time can be.

Challenges arise at this time, especially around the Thanksgiving Holiday, but I stand by my notion that this may be the best time to spend with family all year.  The overriding theme at this time is a call to remain in the energy of gratitude, but also that of encouragement, mercy and forgiveness.

It is a time to count our blessings and to give up the swords of complaints and biting criticism.  It is a time to heal the wounded, encourage the old and nurture the children.  Find someone to give to.

What does the energy of The Divine Mother entail?

When you are sick, she looks after you.  When you are sad, she listens and lets you cry it out.  When you are hungry she feeds you, naked she clothes you.  And she is a graceful example to all.  She knows that you are the future.  And if anything is to change for the better, it all starts inside, right now and the difference we make even just for one other person.  Can you be a place of haven, rest or joy, for one person, even if only for a few moments?

If you have resentments, put them aside.  Save the caustic retorts.  The core of the Truth is we are siblings.  And we don’t have to be the same. Just because we do not believe the same, just because our religion or politics are different, does not mean either of us is any less deserving of compassion or our wounds salved.  It is not criminal to be different in philosophy any more than in skin color.  Stand up for what is right.  The Divine Mother does not ridicule.  But she will attend to your wounds caused by it.

As 2011 comes closer to its conclusion, this energetic cycle calls us to express compassion for others.  It also demands a balancing of justice.  Let not accusations fall that are undeserved.  Do not equate apples to snakes when oranges suffice.  Do not allow poisonous people or attitudes to fester in your life.  And when it comes to who you are, actively be that blessing to someone else.  Some way.  Some how.

Mother of Justice.  Mother of Mercy.  Mother of Love.

The traps?  Think of what is opposite of The Divine Mother? Of Lady Justice?  This Divine energy is not meant to foster apathy.  It does not neglect.  It does not stand by and allow another to be abused.  It nurtures positive emotions and salves the negative.  It does not take advantage and do emotional injury.  “Do No Harm.”  Others may fall to this level. See that you do not.  Stick to Gratitude and Encouragement this holiday.  And when challenges arise, because they will, soothe them.

“It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new. But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful. There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.”
~ Alan Cohen

Softly and kindly remind yourself, ‘I cannot own anything.’ It is a valuable thought to keep in mind as you struggle to improve your financial picture, worry about investments, and plan how to acquire more and more. It is a universal principle which you are part of. You must release everything when you truly awaken. Are you letting your life go by in frustration and worry over not having enough? If so, relax and remember that you only get what you have for a short period of time. When you awaken you will see the folly of being attached to anything.”
~ Wayne Dyer

“Joy is not the result of getting what you want; it is the way to get what you want. In the deepest sense, Joy is what you want…..  You are in integrity when the life you are living on the outside matches who you are on the inside.”
~ Alan Cohen

“They must often change, who would be constant in happiness or wisdom.
~ Confucius (C. 551 – C. 479)

All of 2011 so far has been about responsibility, work, structure and laying foundations.  It’s been a period of preparation and even tension.  Coming full swing into the energy of October, we move into a cycle that pushes to a stage of evaluation and asks us for release. We come to a point asking us to let go, to make choices and to allow things to be different from here on out. 

If you need a boost for fresh ideas or how to see things differently, I recommend this article by Christopher Penn, where he discusses how powerful triggers can be to help us shift our emotional and mental states. “Simple Pleasures.”

Also check out “Freedom After Financial Crisis” by Tracy Vincent. An insightful article about processing change and loss.

I expect in many ways that the next 5 weeks will feel a bit more comfortable to most everyone.  The tension that has been in place should loosen in some areas, possibly break in others.  (Remember that slow energy build I’ve been talking about?) And as I mentioned before, I believe we’ll see the markets gain some predictability by the end of October.  Just remember, predictability is not the same as profitable.  I see this more as a lull period where things calm down a bit and allow people to catch their breaths, take a break and re-evaluate the important things in life and the next steps to take.  If the markets become a place where these potential tension breaks channel through, it might be a good time to look for deals. There’s energetic tension present, it will release or relax somewhere. Markets or not.

It’s important to note that sometimes during periods like this, we are presented with events that stimulate choice, release, re-evaluation and adaptability.  Sometimes it takes a smack on the head to help us realize we’re not moving and we are stagnant.  Sometimes it takes a flush to get things moving again.  The energy present during this time desires flow and movement much like water.  YOU choose where and how it should channel.  If you don’t, it will be chosen for you and you may not be as comfortable with it. 

It’s a good time to take a mini-vacation of some sort, if you can.  It’s a good time to make deposits in your bank of positive memories and experiences.   Remember that negative experiences borrow from our bank of positive experiences.  When the positive bank is drained, it’s like going into the red.  Make the efforts and choices necessary.  No matter how small, they all count. 

The energy at this time is very much about making choices and the nature of the fact that freedom is only attained via choice.  And without choice, no freedom or grace is possible.  Just as our guides cannot take away our free will and freedom to choose, likewise we cannot take away the choices of others either.  Only in a free society do we see the essences of the 9 Divine Archetypes as they were meant to exist.  Freedom and choice are inextricably linked.

Patterns I see at this time are interesting as I still see a window for events to take place on either or both the east and west coasts in the U.S.. Hurricane energy would fit these patterns, but even man-induced events are a possibility.  The energy is a slow build-up with a sustained punch.  I know we’re getting late into the hurricane season, but I see these as still being quite possible. 

Southern California, I’m not sure what’s going on with you, but you keeping popping up on my radar.  Folks who live there, please have a plan in place in case of emergency.  And listen to your hearts and guts.  This feels like a mix of natural events and man-induced amplification.  Not sure what that looks like yet?  I will be on the west coast soon where I hope I can tap in better and will try to update with a more clarified take later.  I don’t usually focus on areas I don’t live in.  Central Texas, I believe we’re in for a harder winter than usual for us.  Plan accordingly.

September 2011 Heretical Numerology Watch


“First say to yourself what would you be;
and then do what you have to do.”

~ Epictetus (C. 55 – C. 135) Greek Stoic Philosopher

“Take charge of your thoughts.
You can do what you will with them.”

~ Plato (428-327 BC) – Greek Philosopher and Prose Writer

“They can do all because they think they can.”
~ Virgil (70-9 BC) – Roman Poet

“The key to success is to focus our conscious mind
on things we desire not things we fear.”

~ Brian Tracy

“You can’t depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus.”
~ Mark Twain

At the time of this writing, Mercury is still retrograde and will go direct on August 26.  Themes during retrogrades are not only more reflective, but also more focused.  Too many folks go through life not really awake, or are too reliant upon last minute “by the skin of your teeth” living.  Retrogrades give increased focus on their areas of governance, which requires a greater sense of awareness as well.  Flying by the seat of your pants (we’re pretty bad about this in the US, not to mention the stress levels we try to pass off as normal life) doesn’t tend to work as well under the demand for focus during these times.  So-so output just doesn’t really cut it.  With Mercury governing money, communication and travel, these areas require more clarity, attention and focus during a retrograde.  Communication is very important at this time.  Even when you are aware though, you have all the sleepy-heads to watch for.  Your key to success is remaining balanced, eating right, sleeping right, staying focused and giving Mercury its due.  And moving into the next numerological window, this need for communication and facts becomes even greater.

Last month I mentioned that we’d have an opportunity to put things into order soon.  We enter that window between now and about mid-October. The energetic window that awaits brings into focus issues with boundaries, law, and order.  We had a swing at responsibility in August, and in September, it makes us look hard at what those responsibilities are.  Now is a time for clarity, revealing the realities as they are.  The is and is not.  When do you say no?  When do you say yes?  What deserves attention?  What does not?  What is your purpose in life?  What may feel nice, but isn’t your purpose in life?  Just because you can do something, doesn’t mean you are supposed to.  On the other hand, there are things people can and should do that they fail to.  Like stand up for themselves, for someone else, or something that is right.  Sometimes during these types of energetic windows people focus on simplifying.  That is OK, but I do prefer the term clarify.  Clarify your purpose and direction right now and at least put together a thumbnail sketch of a road map to follow.  For most of us, our purpose is not for a simple life, but for one with a clear purpose.  Clarity is the key.

As the US gets comfortable with it’s new cycle, I expect health, community and family issues to take center stage come November/December.  And interestingly, this year the Thanksgiving holiday is more conducive to family gatherings than Christmas. (If you’re trying to decide which holiday to travel to see family for, my vote is Thanksgiving.)

There are some interesting patterns afoot.  The whole month of September tends to be more intensified due to it’s nine nature doubling each day’s vibration, however the 9th and 20th do stand out.  The thing I think is interesting… I’ve been watching http://spaceweather.com, and there are some interesting celestial “anomalies” that I thought I’d go ahead and mention.  Space Weather maintains a list of upcoming Earth-Asteroid encounters and it’s interesting to note that each one of note (highlighted in pink on their chart) comes closest to Earth during an arch of influence in numerology dates.  The most significant is actually classed a Potentially Hazardous Asteroid (greater than 150 m in diameter and passing within .05 AU of our planet).  On Nov 8th, within an important numerology arch, asteroid 2005 YU55 will pass closer to the Earth than our own moon.  (For reference, our moon is 3474 km in diameter.)  If you’re curious, follow the link to space weather and click on the asteroids to watch the videos of the projected obits, etc..

Now, that  said – I find all this fascinating.  And I find that when astrological, celestial and numerological events collide, the intensity of the energy seems that much greater.  However, I’m not overly concerned about it.  Anymore than I am in a place of fear about the drought we’re having here in Texas.  My job is to love, not to be afraid.  And Mother Gaea is in need of her natural processes.  Our sun is increasing in activity. I think winter will be a different story.

For the next 6 weeks, I ask you to think about making plans, getting yourself organized and laying foundations.  Do this for work and career and do this for family.  September is the best month all year to get your act together for the holidays and pre-plan for 2012.  October is a good time to take a trip for fun, December a good time to take a trip for reflection.  But expect travel issues in December.  I think we’re in for quite a Winter 2011 in the US.  And September is a good time to plan for potential weather extremes and emergency scenarios as well.  Unusual weather is in the the future down the road and it’s better to think of needs now than not be prepared.  Besides, you know I’m a fan of being prepared not just for yourself, but so you can be a light to others.  You never know what kind of difference you might make for someone else.  Do you have a first aid kit?  Firewood? A disaster plan in case of a chemical spill?  A list of emergency phone numbers?  Do your kids know what to do?  These scenarios are often considered uncommon, but what has previously been considered uncommon is becoming more common place.  I’ve been analyzing the last 2000 years of dates and there is a large pattern that makes me want to encourage everyone to keep records and get first aid training.  Take an inventory and get an idea together of what you can and will do.

Feeling stuck?  I highly recommend an article by Mark McGuinness called: “5 Creative Coaching Techniques To Get Yourself Unstuck.”  Mark has not only a gift for writing, but for coaching as well.  And I love his “imagine yourself without a head” exercise.  Check it out.  He’s a good resource.

September is the 9th month of the year, and as such always holds a special vibration because 9 is the number that honors all other vibrations.  We feel each day’s vibrations more clearly in the month of September.  In the natural annual social progression in the US, it serves as the perfect “beginning of the year,” with its clearer messages and holiday season peeking around the corner.  No wonder our school years naturally start around September.  The weather may begin shifting to fall and the waning of the seasons during September, but as a society we seem to come alive with expectation.

The window we enter now asks us to place order into our lives, to focus, to organize, to plan.  As we begin turning to our fall schedules, planning for the future is important now.  Take the information you’ve gathered thus far this year and begin putting it into a working order.

Back in June I mentioned seeing some forces at work come this window beginning in August.  Not the short explosive bursts I saw back in April/May, but longer and more sustaining in effect.  The closer we draw, the more I feel this pull.  Again, I look to North Atlantic region and the east US coast, with the window appearing from about North Carolina on up.  It is a large energy pattern, which points to a natural event, but could manifest in something man-caused.  However, I also see disturbance on the west coast for mid to southern California.  I’m not sure what the trigger is.  Whether it’s weather or a natural disaster or frankly a ball game.  But something is coming to a head.

I also mentioned that by end of October I believe we’ll see some of the predictability in the markets and economy that everyone craves.  It’s important to note that though the chaotic flux will calm down, this predictability will likely remain with lower profits than many hope for.  If you’ll remember, I predicted previously that there would be those who will claim this year that the recession is over.  Lately on the news I’ve heard debate over whether we’ll have “another” recession or not, as if what we’ve been through ended some time ago.  It’s never been over.  It’s a larger pattern we are caught up in and it won’t be over for some time.  Either we get caught by the under current, or we ride the wave.  Everything is changing, nothing is going back to the way is was before.  I challenge you to think differently about everything, even your expectations.  Do not get caught in the boxes of “have to’s” either.  For instance, I have met so many people who are caught because they spent money to get a degree in a field that they now cannot find work in.  How can they possibly consider a completely different path now?  Wouldn’t it invalidate everything they’ve ever worked hard for?  Only if we allow ourselves to get trapped in that line of thinking.  That part of your life served its time.  The last millennium served a very important purpose.  Honor that.  But do not be trapped, do not be caught by that.  How many times have we wished in our lives to have a second chance?  Wished we could start over?  Wished we had more choices?  We asked for it – and it has been delivered!  Time does not matter to Spirit, why on earth would you allow yourself to be trapped by it now?  So what your age?  What are you really missing out on if you let go of that box?

I ask you to take inventory not just of your house, but of yourself at this time.  What are your skills, what it is that you are passionate about, but also, what is it that humanity really needs from you?  What is it that you are an expert of?  And do you have the means to pass that knowledge on?  Knowledge needs to be preserved while we go through rebirth.

Societal change is being forced to take place, right now.  NOTHING will ever be as it once was!  Make your plans now.

It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new. But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful.  There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.” ~ Alan Cohen

As form is created and plans are laid, release becomes an operative word in time.  Though a word of action, to release, one must know what to release.  To do this requires time.  Time to go within, time to listen, time to think, time to learn, time to sort it through.

We move into a period that requires our attention.  And to have our attention, distractions are required to be quelled or removed.  To have attention we need to retain focus. To listen, we must be quiet.  To see, we must look.

To receive the right answer… we must ask the right question.

Caution is voiced during this time, but it is not about fear, yet about slowness and thoroughness.

Deliberately slow down during this period.  Become acutely aware of each moment, each choice, each movement and the very heartbeat of flow.  I am reminded of the slow, yet deliberate precision in the art of Tai Chi.  Slow, aware, calm, introspective, encapsulating, deliberate choice.

To know and to flow.

Details and rules are important at this time.  So is solitude and rest. Consciously choose what to keep and to release.

JANUARY-FEBRUARY 2011 HERETICAL NUMEROLOGY WATCH


Hope… is not a plan.

It’s that time again.  Time for a new year, time to get our collective butts in gear.  Time to make plans and renew our aspirations and goals. Time to make changes.

Honestly, we shouldn’t do it just once a year.  I like quarterly evaluations myself.  However, I think once a year is important too.  And that’s what most of us tend to stick with.  The fiscal year is over.  It’s a good time to regroup.

2011 holds in store all the energy needed to take all this new millennial information you’ve been receiving and essentially take it from a chaotic slew of ideas/input and place it into form on the physical plane.  But also, as we start this year out, we are pressured to do more than just that.  It’s also a time of re-evaluation.  Time to do a little house cleaning and re-organization.  Time to go over the books, feng shui the office and firm up the plans and structures we need in place this year.  Time to de-clutter, time to free ourselves from the bonds we haven’t shook free from.  Time to do a little background research and up the ante.

If you’re thinking this year is about skating, it’s not.  I know the holidays brought some unexpected sales and hope to the financial markets.  But as I said when I predicted this boost last January – the economy as we view it is not fixed, even though some public figures will try to use the holidays as a proof that it is.  There’s a lot of work called for in 2011. It is a year that demands corrections, reckonings and a balance between planned action and inspired action.  Both will be important. As you start this year out, seriously evaluate all the important areas of your life.  “Spring cleaning” will be in the air like never before. Hop on the train for this vibrational push as it will help you clear, cleanse and break through a great many blocks and barriers in your life. When you get an impulse to purge something, stop and take a serious look at doing just that.  Once done, make a plan for filling the void left behind, even if all you fill it with is conscious Light.

Being a year of corrections will cause things to feel uncomfortable at times.  Some will call this year a “bad” and unlucky year.  Some will look at this year as proof that we should all go back to growing our own food, etc.. And truly, that’s not a bad skill or resource to have.  But what’s going on ain’t about that.  Let me tell you, 2011 is a year of making history.  I know everyone’s talks about 2012, but 2011 is where’s it’s at.  It’s the foundation of anything we see in 2012 and it’s the turning point for the future. If you are ready to get the most out of the new energies brought in by the new millennium, if you are ready to let go of old ways of thinking, and if you are trying to change your life in any way, this is the best year in a long while to lay that foundation.  This is the energetic sphere of influence present – so get the most out of it!

To explain further – cycles of numerological influence are somewhat like trends, except that numerological trends are part of the foundation and natural flow of this universe.  During any particular given cycle period, certain energies are predominant – not too unlike fashion trends at a mall. Everywhere you look, opportunities are available in the predominant trends.  So it’s a great time to buy because both the demand and the supply are plentiful.

Numerology cycles are similar.  Each cycle offers windows of opportunity as well as desires that tend to be predominant in particular energy forms.  Make use of it if you like.  Abuse it even.  But when the window closes, that energy is no longer predominant.

2011 dictates a planning cycle that circulates around words like boundaries, rules, structure, foundation and law.  However, for now the US remains in a cycle that demands freedom and a re-evaluation of those laws, boundaries and structures.  Structures and corrections. Organization and outside of the box approaches.

This will be an interesting balancing act that will lend to uncertainty in the marketplace, but lays a fertile ground for dream building and a chance to correct mistakes of the past. Success in general will lie in spending the physical time and work this year, as well as strategically placed changes and tweaks as well.

If you have the muster to do the work, 2011 could be the year you look back on and say – that’s where it all changed for me.
