May 2012 Heretical Numerology Watch


“Tanzan and Ekido were once traveling together down a muddy road. A heavy rain was still falling.

Coming around a bend, they met a lovely girl in a silk kimono and sash, unable to cross the intersection.

“Come on, girl,” said Tanzan at once. Lifting her in his arms, he carried her over the mud.

Ekido did not speak again until that night when they reached a lodging temple. Then he could no longer restrain himself. “We monks don’t go near females,” he told Tanzan, “especially not young and lovely ones. It is dangerous. Why did you do that?”

“I left the girl there,” said Tanzan. “Are you still carrying her?”
― Nyogen Senzaki, Zen Flesh, Zen Bones: A Collection of Zen and Pre-zen Writings

“We are all hypocrites. We cannot see ourselves or judge ourselves the way we see and judge others.”
― José Emilio Pacheco

“When one experiences truth, the madness of finding fault with others disappears.”
― S.N. Goenka

Heretical Message:

Without love and without wisdom, judgment is not an enlightened state.

If you did not choose a life in politics, then pray for our politicians.

If you did not choose a life of the clergy, then pray for our clergy.

If you did not choose a life in business, then pray for our merchants.

If you did not choose a life as a laborer, then pray for our laborers.

If you did not choose a life as a teacher, then pray for our teachers.

If you did not choose a life as a parent, then pray for our parents.

The modern world makes it too easy for us to unfairly and un-spiritually judge others.

The label wars must come to an end.

If we have not walked a mile in someone else’s shoes… We. Do. Not. Know.

This year is already a roller-coaster of highs and lows.  Inspirations and discouragements.  Proud moments and those not so.  And it is not over yet. We are but 1/3 of the way through 2012 so far.  And when April closes, May opens on an equally intense note.

Monday April 30th and Tuesday May 1….  These dates are part of a short intense burst.  And I expect some safety issues around travel to manifest, including travel to/from work/school, your daily routines.  It would make a great 4-day weekend if you can take these two days off.  Otherwise, plan ahead and do not rely on last minute, fly by the skin of your teeth, activities to get through these days.  Prepare ahead so you can be more available to observe and help if needed.  Seriously.  When you are too busy being busy, how can you see to help others?  Or avoid the pit in front of you? And hey, speaking of travel, does everyone carry a fully stocked first-aid kit in their cars, along with an emergency bag (ie, water, change of clothes, blanket, food, cash)?  Perhaps it’s the tornadoes dancing near my brother’s house last night, but as I write this, I am reminded of childhood memories of Terrible Tuesday and having to find a hotel with just the muddy clothes on our backs after our neighborhood was destroyed.  Whether you are affected or not, someone you know might be.

The rest of May is less notable in terms of number patterns, with the exception of two other short bursts.  But that is not because it’s less active.  It’s because the entire months of May and June are slated for transitions, with some trickle following in July.  With windows as big as that, very little stands out in the deluge.

How does this work?  Well, this year as it falls, the energies of May fall along the line of Master Number 55, which I often associate with the Tower Card in tarot.  This involves two types of change: rebirth and renewal.  These are not the same energies.  This can also be read as replace and recycle.  They both involve matters of change, but different kinds.

Come June, we hit our challenge month of the year.  (There’s one every year.)  This year it’s a time to be faced with our worst enemies – ourselves.  Please remember that every thing that comes up during this vibrational window is not about others.  It is about you.  When others make decisions that just set you off, the lesson is to realize it’s not about them – there’s something for you to settle personally.  It will not come up if it’s not an issue you need to give attention to.  OK?  During this window we find that the energy of judgement itself is on trial.  Gossip and media are also on the chopping block.  Remember that facts are facts and emotions are emotions.  Both are real and both have their place.  When you notice a feeling being triggered “by someone else,” remember it is not a fact about that other person.  It is about you.  I expect this to be especially challenging with the political climate ahead.  It’ll be interesting to see who plays sides and who sticks by and listens to their brother.  We know that judgement based on race or skin color is wrong.  Likewise judgement based on any box is also wrong.

July is always interesting because it is when the US flips into a new annual vibrational cycle.  Our summer culture softens the transition, but I expect new frontiers in technology and science to be introduced during that time frame and by fall of this year, I expect scientific breakthroughs to take center stage.  We shift every summer and the eclipses will be there this year to help us.  I believe something outstanding is on the horizon.  I’m not sure how much attention it will get until later in the year though.

There will be some who attribute all these energies specifically to 2012.  This is not really because it’s 2012, though that will accentuate the matter.  This energy is here because it is here now, numerologically, at this time.

What to do?  What I always say: consciously choose how to channel this energy.

This is the forecast and being 2012, it does make for opportunities, if one will but seize them.  These are natural cycles of the Universe.  We are not victims.  We are creators and choosers.

If a wizard came to you and said, “Here, I give you this magical stone.  And with it, you can metaphorically ride any train farther and faster with less fuel,” what would you do?

Instead of expecting everything to be a wild ride and bracing yourself for it,  how about jumping on the back of that wild horse and decide where you want to go?

Bet you get there faster.

July 2011 Heretical Numerology Watch


“Love taught me to die with dignity that I might come forth anew in splendor.
Born once of flesh, then again of fire, I was reborn a third time
to the sound of my name humming haikus in heaven’s mouth.”
— Aberjhani (The River of Winged Dreams) 

“If you live in the dark a long time and the sun comes out, you do not cross into it whistling.  There’s an initial uprush of relief at first, then-for me, anyway- a profound dislocation.  My old assumptions about how the world works are buried, yet my new ones aren’t yet operational.  There’s been a death of sorts, but without a few days in hell, no resurrection is possible.”
— Mary Karr (Lit: A Memoir)

“Things are only impossible until they’re not.”
— Jean-Luc Picard (Star Trek Next Generation)

So where are we now in the energy mix?

Over the last couple of months, we’ve been in a “soft” transition, riding the outer waves of the hard transition coming up in July.  This hard transition is not the kind, however, that can be easily labeled.  The reason why is because it is spiritual in nature.  And essentially the energetic theme is that of “Rebirth.”  The mechanism is however different for everyone.

Expect this to play out in physical ways, but it’s essential to remember that whatever happens, it’s not about the physical.  It is about the spiritual, soul level growth.   It’s not just about growing, though some will be pushed to do so.  It is also about the kind of testing that is less about learning and more about confirmation, more about proof that you have finally arrived.

I’ll use a personal experience for an illustration. All throughout my teen and young adult years I had a recurring dream about being taunted by a particular person who caused me great emotional distress in real life.  In my dreams this person would suddenly show up when I was in public and shout mean things about my looks and how I’d never become anything.  I would struggle to run away and hide from their insults, and it never seemed to work right.  The dreams felt awful, and I knew they were about my self-confidence.  I worked on it though, in real life, pushing myself to step outside my comfort zone.  And the day finally arrived when I had the dream again, but this time I did not run.  I instead stood up to the offending person, told them off and told them why they were wrong.  In the beginning, the dream yet again felt awful and I wanted to avoid the person. But by the end, it became one of the most empowering dream experiences I’ve ever had.  Time and time again I was given opportunity to be my true self, but someone was always there to tell me why it was ugly or bad and I tried to hide.  Finally I stood without fear and with acceptance of who I was.  I woke up like a new person.  I had arrived.  I never dreamed about that person taunting me again and I was afraid to challenge my beliefs no more.

The energy now is somewhat like what that last dream was for me.  A final unpleasant test, but less for learning and more for confirmation. I had graduated.

Don’t get me wrong, we’ll have the challenge part too in this energy bubble, and it’s possible to fail the test, but the end goal is to finally get that certificate of arrival.  We won’t be done for the year just yet, but this summer holds a special spot for the thresholds we are all crossing.  Rebirth.

The interesting thing is, though I can see it in numbers, I’m not the only one talking about it.  A lot of people feel this internal need for something to change.  Sometimes they know exactly what, but a lot do not.  They can’t quite put their finger on it, but they know something needs to, is or going to shift.  Sometimes the clue comes from the fact that coping mechanisms they have relied on for some time are beginning to no longer work.  I read once there’s a reason why addicts usually end up in treatment, and it’s not just because they are addicts.  It’s because the body has an amazing ability to develop a tolerance and what used to work stops working. It’s not too different for anything in life, as everything points to the need for flow.  Everything could be good, but if it becomes stagnant, it becomes poison.

Sometimes figuring out what it is that needs transformation requires you to get away, remove yourself from the everyday, so you can finally get the sense of what is truly taking place.  Sometimes the best “get away” people can get in their life is to start a new job, or start a new hobby, or start running everyday, or something else that helps remove you from the current outlook and put you into a different pace.

Even now, people are looking for the answer to the nagging feeling of “what’s next.”  It’s time.

July holds some significant master number energy and not ironically, July 11 and 22 are pretty significant this month.  It just happens to be that each of these dates are double master number days in 2011.  On top of that, July 1st finishes out our triple eclipse pattern this summer and the US moves into a new annual cycle that expects community service and responsibility to our families and health.  The thing is, in 2011 this realm of service energy also contains a spiritual challenge.  And then Mercury will go retrograde on the heels of all this August 3.  There’s also Uranus going retrograde on July 9th, a date I have already pegged for a numerological date of significance.

We are being challenged during this year 2011, to be better about doing our research and not make decisions too quickly.  We are challenged to slow down and to seek greater truth on any matter, physical or spiritual.  We are challenged to find the missing details we don’t yet see. We are challenged to listen and to be careful with our questions. Every year contains a challenge vibration – in 2011 it involves this.

This challenge is a bit in opposition to the keynote energy of the US, which tends to make decisions on the spur of the moment.  There is a place for that energy, but this year asks us to slow it down.  As we transition during the summer, we also add a challenge to the energy of family, community, health and the notion of sacrifice.  I expect children, health care and community ideas, both secular and religious, to take a center focus in the near future and become increasingly important this fall.  The issue however will be to take measures to take a lot of time in these matters.  Number patterns point to hidden mysteries when it comes to these subjects.  Truths to be revealed, errors to be recognized and growth in understanding.  It’s not too different in nature to a spiritual awakening, when all you thought was true is well… different.  Not exactly wrong, but not the whole story and not exactly right either.  Some things completely wrong, but understandable at that level.  Still once you jump to the next plateau, it just no longer serves you.  Crawling works really well for us as long as we cannot yet walk.  But once we attain walking, we rarely find need to crawl again.  It no longer serves us.  Still, in order to finally get to that place of walking with confidence, we must first take some falls.  We must first, as Mary Karr points out in the quote above, “go through hell.”

We are reaching one of these points now.  It is like the transition of the butterfly from a caterpillar.  Did you know that when a caterpillar changes, it actually dissolves completely before it can reform into a butterfly?  Science calls it’s dissolved slurry state a “culture medium” not too unlike a liquid bath of embryonic cells.  This transformation is significant as none of the original structure of the caterpillar remains.  It is broken down into base liquid parts and completely reformed anew.  You can read more about this fascinating phenomenon here: “Inside the Chrysalis” by Dr. Lincoln Brower.

That – is where we are.  Entering the slurry stage.  It’s not a bad thing.  It’s not really an easy thing either.  Even birth is not easy.  But there is wonder on the other side.

“Nature abhors a vacuum, and if I can only walk with sufficient carelessness, I am sure to be filled.”
~ Henry David Thoreau ~

“If you want greater prosperity in your life, start forming a vacuum to receive it.”
~ Catherine Ponder ~

“The secret of getting ahead is getting started. The secret to
getting started is breaking your complex overwhelming tasks into
small manageable tasks and then starting on the first one.”
~ Mark Twain ~

“Never be afraid to try something new.
Remember, amateurs built the ark; professionals built the Titanic.”
~ Unknown ~

Now is the time to get started.  We’ve had the months of energy warps pushing us to declutter and put a structure in place.  To evaluate, clean house and get ready for change.  We’ve made the adjustments necessary – the first steps in the changes to take place.  Now is the time for new beginnings and abandoning (or destroying) something old that no longer serves us (or maybe never did).

Sometimes “If it don’t work, don’t fix it,” is the right answer you seek.

If you have been working on manifesting something in your life, now is the time for the follow-through.  If you have not taken the steps already to clarify and get the vacuum created to help draw to you what you seek, get to it now.  We stand on fertile ground! And to support the numerological energies I already see, we have a triple eclipse pattern coming up that will help push the matter for us, ready or not.  This is a wonderful wave of new-new-new to hop on if you’re willing to shake off the fear and dance.  It will also nicely set the stage and open doors for the next year if you let it.

To emphasize the whole “something new coming from out of no-where” kind of energy we are entering, check out NASA’s recent article about free-floating planets that are not tied to solar systems of any kind here:  http://science.nasa.gov/science-news/science-at-nasa/2011/18may_orphanplanets/.   Ever notice how important planets are, vs. stars, in astrology?

As the school year ends, community, family and health areas come into focus.  If you have anything in process in these areas during this time, it’s time to look at it from a completely new approach, or head back to the drawing board and start over from scratch.

Eclipse patterns and solar flares have long been connected to weather extremes.  The initial window I saw for explosive events on a natural scale, thinking tornado type energy vs. earthquake type energy, is at its close.  However, there is a mini power-punch I’m watching at the end of May to first 3 days of June.  It is a different kind of energy, but extreme none-the-less.  Additionally, June 1st is a potent day numerologically and the fact that a solar eclipse falls on that day as well, causes me to expect something significant within a three-day window of that date.  Plus we have the following June 15th lunar and July 1st solar eclipse.  Remember, there are always at least two dates in operation on this planet at one time.  I expect significant natural events with more stamina to occur come August as well.  Hurricane season would fit the bill, but whatever it is, instead of short explosive bursts, the energy is longer and stronger.  Where in the world?  I suspect the US and North Atlantic regions most.  Otherwise in areas that will somehow have a significant impact upon us, even if we don’t experience it directly.

I see a last little bit of volatility in the market before it fizzles out.  By the end of August, I believe we will see a different energetic feel emerge in the market altogether, which I expect to be unsettling.  Not quite sure what that looks like, as I’m not a a financial person, but by October I believe we’ll see some of the predictability everyone craves.

JUNE 2010 NUMEROLOGY WATCH


As noted before, May and August are the challenge months for 2010.  Don’t say I didn’t warn ya.

As a “challenge month” May has entailed questions of boundaries, maturity and honor. A time of reaping what has been previously sewn, for better or worse and a testing of character. A time to see what happens during sticky situations.

But where May is about physical lessons, August is about spiritual lessons and consequences.  And a much more difficult time in general as are most things that touch on the Soul.

The set-up between events in May and August are dynamic in nature.  In fact I expect certain events in May will lay the foundation for events in August.  And sandwiched in between these intense polarities of physical and spiritual lessons, we find June and July.

I expect the beginning of June to be a little quieter than the end of May, but the theme in June 2010 is about service and clarity.  And towards the end of June we launch into our next eclipse cycle, which will coincide with the final shift of the US’s Master Number 22 cycle into 5 in July.

There are a few things the next few weeks will bring:

  • It’s a time calling us to serve the greater good by serving our families.  Haven’t I been telling you this is the year to invest in family trips and time into your friendships and relationships?  Have you listened?  Because it matters.  And it matters this year not just for now, but for the future.  If you’re too busy working, stop and take some time somewhere to connect with someone.  Are you feeling tired and discouraged?  I can guarantee you that someone else in your circle is too.   Be the one who makes the difference.  I’m here to remind you that life does not have to be all suits and papers.  Remember how childhood made it easy to drop by and see if a friend wanted to play?  Help pull that energy into today, into right now, into this year.  Whatever it is that’s fun to you – do it and bring someone with you.
  • It’s also a time to take care of health matters.  This isn’t just medicine and exercise, this is also sleep, wholesome foods and all the things in life that make for a safe and nurturing environment to thrive in.  That goes for emotional nurturing too.   And what kind of pantry do you have anyway?  Or do you even have one?  Maybe you ought to think about having something around.  You know, just in case you need to feed someone – like yourself.
  • The challenging of foundations and belief systems.  It’s a time of clarifying your faith.  Whatever that means to you.  Whether it’s faith in your job, faith in your family, faith in your purpose, faith in your country, faith in God as you understand it….  You will be presented with an opportunity to face and clear something about what you believe.  And by all means, take it when it comes up.  Because it’ll help prepare you for August’s spiritual lessons.   In the process, a gift of healing will be offered.
  • With the challenge of shaky internal foundations comes the challenge of shaky external foundations.  I expect to see things like earthquake type activity, volcanic and/or stormy type volatility.  Perhaps a mud slide or collapse or two.  Gaea is after a clearing too.
  • This all leads up to our shift into a national cycle of CHANGE and desire for FREEDOM.  This vibration is very strong with us as a nation because it happens to be our Life Lesson as a nation.  It is what we desire most to achieve and it is what we are also challenged by.  Shifting into this cycle along with the full solar eclipse will bring fluctuation in the market place.  One of the easiest places for this energy to play out is in the flow of money.  If a stock is inflated, it will correct itself and a different direction will evolve.  If you’re rock bottom, there’s no where to go but up.  This energy is volatile enough every time we shift into it on a regular cycle.  However, the solar eclipse this year adds an extra element of unpredictability.  I expect it to be October before things start to feel semi-ok in the markets.  Now that being said, there is money to be made and opportunities to be found.  But it’ll take a pioneering outlook to find them.  They won’t be sitting on a grocery shelf for you to pluck off and buy.  So it’s a time for creative energy and thinking outside of the box.  It’s time to truly embrace what it means to manifest something.  Don’t just sit around waiting for something to be handed to you.  Create it.  Opportunity for new ideas to flourish will present themselves.  Look for the window and seize it.
