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.

“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:   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.

“Don’t ask what the world needs.
Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it.
Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”
– Howard Thurman

“To go against the dominant thinking of your friends,
of most of the people you see every day,
is perhaps the most difficult act of heroism you can perform”
– Theodore H. White

“So what do we do?
Anything.  Something. So long as we just don’t sit there.
If we screw it up, start over. Try something else.
If we wait until we’ve satisfied all the uncertainties,
it may be too late”
– Lee Iacocca

As tornado weather and fires seems to spread, my predictions on natural events through May continue to point to an open window for sudden and explosive events.  Nothing satisfies this description quite like a tornado.  Unlike a volcano or earthquake, tornadoes do not appear to slowly develop and fester over time to a final explosion.  In truth, as I went over calculations last month and analyzed the energy window I was picking up, I was thrown back into childhood memories of surviving Terrible Tuesday.  I have always carried a sense that I and my friends should have died that day, 32 years ago.  It’s been forever since I thought about that day, and here I was consumed for awhile with the memories. I still remember what the air tasted like.

I thought about writing about this last month, but since it was so vivid and personal, I felt my visions were tied to personal emotions and wanted to keep the air clear.  A tornado does not have to be the manifestation of this energy.  Still, I have not been surprised.  And the window is still open.

May 2011 is the most crucial month of the year for focus on evaluation and change based on logic, intelligence and experience.  Not only is it a good time to evaluate your direction, but also to analyze your reasons and find your sense of adventure.  Sometimes we simply need to just do something.  If you are feeling stuck, now is the time to un-stick.  If you tend to be inflexible, now’s the time to remember to pick your battles and flow.  This vibration will not tolerate stagnation or allow you to remain in stasis.  And May is one of the months in 2011 where each day’s vibration is felt a little more intensely.

In keeping with channeling this energy in positive ways, I’d like to borrow some wise words from my peers.  As good friends recently asked me, “We hear a lot of ‘ought to’s.’ What’s actually your joy? Not what you get satisfaction from, but actual joy.” 

If you are truly living in your joy, not following your sense of of satisfaction and accomplishment, then look elsewhere to channel the energy that demands evaluation and change.  But if you are not finding yourself in joy – pure joy – then take a look at this area.  What produces an actual joyous state for you?  What allows you to maintain peace?  And what in your life, no matter how passionate you feel, takes your peace away?  What always seems to flow and what never quite seems to iron out?  It’s time to weigh some things in the balance.  This need for evaluation, and shifts and changes born from that, will make itself known at a personal level as well as on the larger community and national scales.

OK, so how do you go about that for you?

I was thinking on the words to write about this and asked for guidance while on my drive to pick up the kids from school.  I’d barely finished the request in my mind when the vehicle in front of me started behaving unpredictably.  I had to react quickly and change lanes awkwardly, as both lanes at my disposal were full.  I like to use my cruise control, as it helps me maintain proper speed, but also not chance going over a speed limit.  I braked, maneuvered, got clear and reset the control.  Then, on another road, soon after I passed that car, another car slammed on their brakes for a sudden left turn in front of me.  This time not only was there another car just ahead to my right, but a cyclist on the same shoulder as well.  Again, I had to react quickly, brake suddenly and make an awkward lane change.  I turned onto yet another road, reset my cruise control and continued down the highway.  Yet another vehicle in the lane next to me began slowing down and speeding up erratically, causing some friction in the traffic flow.  Several cars around me seemed to be trying to figure out what to do with the pattern disruption.  Suddenly a pedestrian appeared on the shoulder on my side of the road and without looking tried to cross 55 mph traffic, while the person next to me seemed to be distracted.  Again, I disengaged my cruise control, and compensated.  As the highway curved to my right under a toll bridge, yet another car suddenly cut into my lane with less than a car length to spare.  Again, I compensated, thinking people sure were lucky I was as observant and as good of a driver as I was.  I hadn’t seen that many odd traffic patterns in less than 10 minutes time… I don’t think ever.  Good grief!  What was with people today?

And that’s when the words popped into my head.  “If you’d set your cruise control for 5 miles less than usual, none of this would have occurred.  When questions lie ahead, take a slower pace than you are capable of.”

It was a revelation.  As I pondered these thoughts turning onto the last road before the school, one last car exhibited unusual traffic behavior.  I looked at my speedometer and felt the truth.  A small reduction would have adjusted more easily.  On the way back, there were no more unusual traffic events.  No strange patterns, no pedestrians or cyclists.  Just a normal pattern I was used to and 5 miles slower than I usually go. Hanging just a tic back gave me an edge for more clarity.

I think therein was the key I asked for.

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.

As we wrap up the month of April, Mercury is currently in retrograde since April 18th and will go direct May 11 and  Mother’s Day is coming up May 9.

May and August are the challenge months for 2010 and as we come into May, the first full week entails an arch of influence that includes some especially intense energy on Monday, May 3rd, so please do take your time and be careful getting to work.  Auto collisions seem to spike on days with this kind of influence, at least in the Austin, TX area.

As a “challenge month” May entails questions of boundaries, maturity and honor.  “Karmic debt” can play a role not only on a personal level, but on a larger scale anywhere from local community to businesses to federal government.  It’s a time of reaping what has been previously sewn, for better or worse and a testing of character.  Questions the Universe will seek answers to include – do you stand for your honor/principles even when the chips are down and are you even sure what your principles are?  It’s always about operating from the Pure Heart.

As previously predicted, I expect a financial and systematic “balancing of the books” in community and government during this month, which can bleed into the last few days of April and beginning of June.  An opportunity will be presented to see what is working and what is not and realize the benefits or costs of each.  Though I generally write based on US energies, because that is where I live, this energy could play out and sweep world-wide.

I expect to see some businesses fail or make the news during this time, as well as challenges in business, government and leadership.  I also have expected a possible natural event of significance during this time.  I predicted back in January some possible volcanic energy during this time, which may have arrived a little earlier than I expected.  However, though the bleed-through begins in April, the full impact of May 2010’s energy has not yet arrived at the time of this writing.

Something in terms of boundaries, whether tangible like national borders, or intangible like government boundaries of operation, is going to spike somewhere during this time and draw attention.  Again, either it’s the one extreme of showing how well something is working and we realize the benefit of great work on the matter, or the other extreme of a demonstration of what isn’t working at all and consequences result.

Career, reputation and honor come to play during this time of challenge.  Financial adjustments in particular will play a significant role here.  I expect some market panic and perhaps some panic on the part of government and law.  Those in charge of economic efforts will see their efforts either succeed or fail here.  Same with companies.  I also expect news of the success or fail of either  anti-terror efforts and/or the success or fail of disaster response efforts.

Additionally, as we slide towards May, I continue to have strong feelings for the need for disaster preparedness and I ask everyone who reads my watches to please take the time to consider your emergency plans.  April’s watch has links to some good websites to help  you put together a plan if you have not done so.  So I suggest reading or re-reading last month’s watch.  Someone(s) reading this absolutely needs this message.  I don’t know who you are, but God bless and keep you and yours safe.
