October 2011 Heretical Numerology Watch


“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.

“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.

“In Thy Presence is Fullness of Joy.”
— Psalms 16:11

“Joy is a net of love by which you can catch souls.
She gives most who gives with Joy.”

— Mother Teresa

“Man loves because he is Love.  He seeks joy, for he is Joy.  He thirsts for God, for he is composed of God and he cannot exist without Him.”
— Sathya Sai Baba

“Where there is Joy, there is Creation.
Where there is no Joy, there is no Creation.  Know the Nature of Joy.”

— Upanishads (circa B.C. 800)

“The secret of Happiness is Freedom.  The secret of Freedom is Courage.”
— Thucydides, 460 – 395 B.C. (Greek Historian)

“There is no Fear in Love. But perfect Love casteth out Fear.”
— 1 John 4:18

“The most powerful weapon on earth is the human soul on fire.”
— Ferdinand Foch

“What I know for sure is that you feel real Joy in direct proportion to how connected you are to Living your Truth.”
— Oprah Winfrey

“Rise Creator and Stand.  For upon you worlds rely.”  This message is loud in my head this morning as I wrap up today’s newsletter.

Abraham – Hicks has told us that “the only true measure of success is the amount of Joy we are feeling.”  Florence Scovel Shinn taught us that Success is a system in which Courage is an important element.  The Bible tells us that there is no Fear in Love and that perfect Love abolishes fear. Thucydides wrote that the secret to happiness is freedom, which also requires courage.  The Upanishads spoke of the eternal connection between Joy and Creation.

All of these teachings point to a marriage of qualities that come into focus at this time.  Courage (confidence) and responsibility coupled and balanced with creation and joy.  It is reminiscent of the complete energy of Great Creator herself.  Joy, Creation, Courage, Responsibility, Freedom, Confidence, Passion, Choice, Love.  They are all intertwined and are the essence of God.

It takes courage to step up and create.  Whether you are creating a dream, a vision, re-creating yourself.  Fear is not a part of this.  Humanity was not created from Fear.   Nothing we consider Divine was created from Fear.

“I’m too old.” “I don’t have the money.” “The economy isn’t conducive.” “I don’t have time.”  “I’m a mom.”  “I’m alone.”  “I can’t because of _____.”  None of these statements are made from a place of courage, confidence or creation or joy.  And none come from a state of Truth or Freedom.  Sadly these chains are not imposed by anyone except by oneself.  When will we learn that we are Creators?  It does not matter what we are given.  We will create with rocks and sticks.  We will summon unto us those who have the missing pieces we need.  We will draw from the energy of the Universe and express.  We have everything we need in our very Souls.  We are not trapped, unless we choose to be.   We are Creators!

I touched on the subject of thinking about what our true Joy is back in May.  You can go back and take a look.  Our process over the summer so far has been in preparation for the window we are moving into.  If we desire to be Joyful, then we must have the courage to take the step, and embrace a state of confidence and knowing, and simply Create.  Step into your I Am of CreatorStep into Freedom.  Step into Joy.  “Live Your Truth.”

Chiron, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto are all retrograde at least through August.  Mercury goes retrograde in Virgo on August 3 and Jupiter goes retrograde in Taurus on August 30.  These are not reasons to hold back.  In fact, I think these retrogrades will help facilitate the process.  Know that it requires of you more focus, and your full soul’s attention and passion.  This is the window to step forward in the process, to create, to reap, to be bold and unwavering in our dreams and desires.  To be joyful. To exist in a state of creation vs. created.  To exist in a state of Creator.

“Create your speech to one another in Love.”  Remember that God spoke and It Was.  Let your speech be clear and unwavering.

Take the steps, even if it does seem messy at first. We have a window coming later that will allow us to clean up the details and put everything into a sense of order.  But jump in, create the steps, stand and be confident, be counted as responsible now.  Be the first one to dare to get messy, and without fear, without worry about failing or “messing up.”  Check your attitudes at the door.  And don’t use “responsibility” as an excuse for “can’t.”  That’s not how this works.  This energy says you have a responsibility to Create!  That you are not responsible if you do not!  The energy of responsibility here is very wholesome and holistic in that it does a balancing act and takes into consideration details as well as end results.  It considers the health of all the corners of life, satisfying our needs in all arenas: emotional, spiritual, physical, mental and all the other “als.”  Contemplate what it actually means to be “Creator.”

This time is about reaping benefits through joy and creativity.  Not just for you, but for everyone you are responsible for.  And today, you are responsible for your community, your world.  Whatever that means in your life.  Your circle.  You have a responsibility to your peers, the people you interact with anywhere.  A responsibility to seed the energy in your life to facilitate it in others as well.  You have the responsibility to stand in confidence, be true to that core of who you really are, even if it means you take on leadership for awhile to do it, so others are supported in their own confident standing as well.  Who are you?  Step into Creator.  You are your own infinite Universe.  If you are the first to step up to the dais, you will soon be joined.  Do you see the network of Light?

The arch for the plateau jump has formed.  It is before us.

“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.

“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.

“Try not to become a man of success but a man of value.”
Albert Einstein

“We are what we repeatedly do.
Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit.”
Aristotle

“Yes, know thyself: in great concerns or small,
Be this thy care, for this, my friend, is all.”
Juvenal

I’ve been going over calculations and found a reduction pattern that I missed and need to add corrections so far for the year.  These corrections are largely extensions of pattern already identified and for posterity’s sake (and if anyone wants to look back) they are as follows:

Jan 15-17: Arch of Influence
Feb 14-20: Arch of Influence
March 4 – 8: Arch of Influence
March 26 – April 3: Large Arch of Influence (this one’s a doozy I’m watching)

OK, catching up now…..

As we slide into April, we move into a period that demands communication, structure, responsibility, hard work, honor and laying ground work. However, we’ll continue to feel a pull of struggle with also trying to remain unstructured (read flexible) and allow freedom for shifts in energy and change. These are polarizations between the larger spheres of influence at work for the US as a whole, and the more compact spheres of influence for the Western world at large during this time period.  See the seeming dichotomy?  And as if that weren’t enough, it’s all wrapped up in a pretty karmic bow of all things related to honor, failure and success – umm, yeah, the public kind.  The world of glamour need watch out and international relations may be strained as the US struggles to remain true to its core essence while contending with the current and demanding wave.

Communication and leadership are KEY during this time.  With that leadership charge comes the honor theme and the whole karmic principle of “reap what you sow.”  There is no room for ignoring or hiding from any issues that involve communication, relationships for groups, partnerships, paperwork, finances, law, organization, etc..  If anything comes up in these areas, your attention needs to be full on and focused very heartily. And no cheating, as that will only blow up during this time. Confidence in who you are and what you believe are going to play a role. And foundations laid during this time will come to fruition likely sometime mid-summer.

Spring cleaning urges are pretty strong right now too as the whole craving for structure (also rules) balanced against freedom (also flexibility). There’s a reason and your focus is demanded. You can ride this wave well by being the go-getter who isn’t waiting around for someone else first.  A lot of folks will fail during this time. You (as someone who knows better and can) need to hold the reins. Partly because in a way you will save the “world.”  Partly because it is an opportunity being handed to you if you seize it.  Remember that cheating, dishonesty, mis-truths, etc. tend to be caught during windows like this.  That can be surprising sometimes as well, as it’s not always what you think. Also, that spring cleaning urge is an important one right now.  Clear the clutter, as it both organizes and frees you and it’s responsible, satisfying all energies demanding your focus during this time.  And make digital de-cluttering part of your chore list.  Did you know digital pack-rats and hording is becoming a concern due to energy consumption to store it all?  Read more about that here.  So hey, I’m doing it too – clean out your inbox and files!

Energies will be felt more intensely during this time and deceit will get a focus as it tends to be revealed.  Complicating this energy matrix is a Mercury retrograde beginning March 30 – April 23rd, along with it’s buffer of influence on either end.  Do not let the common attitudes about Merc retros cause you to miss out or neglect anything.  This is not a time to refrain from communicating.  It is a time that requires extra and more precise attention to it.  However, remember my quote from last month about finding the right answer by asking the right question? This is your key to communication as things get intense.  Use the reflective strengths present during this time to make your communication more effective.  And patience.  It may take more work than usual, so roll up your sleeves and just do it.

Keep in mind that tempers are likely to flare as these two seemingly opposite forces attempt to take center stage or butt heads.  The key is in the fact that they can coexist in the same space.  We can mind the rules and still leave room for flexibility, but there must be both, not one or the other.  Resist the dark side of these energies, impulsiveness and tyrany through control.

Now is a time more than ever to hold a focus. It won’t be easy, I’m not going to kid you. This kind of matrix of colliding energies is often when you see all sorts of things pop up for folks.  However, the energies don’t have to collide.  Remember when I spoke before about how everything that we perceive as Divine exists within paradox?  Balance is key and that focus.  Others will be turning to whoever seems to have their act together for direction.  Will it be you?

A note on natural events: In every year we have at least one month where each day’s vibrational totality equals its day number.  May is that month for 2011.  I believe the time between now and about mid-May is unfortunately one of the best times all year for explosive and even violently sudden events, as far as numbers are concerned.  I don’t want to see anyone hurt, but everyone take heed. And please have a disaster plan ready just in case.  Numerology affects the planet at large, so some areas will be more vulnerable than others, especially where tensions already exist.  I’d like for everyone to focus on the good that can come of anything during this time. Every time humanity is called upon to over come something, we grow.

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.

The Answer Is No


No.  1/1/11 has no more numerological significance than 1/1/01.

To indicate as such would drop the “all important and makes a difference” 2.

On the contrary, 1/1/08 was an actual 1-1-1 event that most everyone missed.  And likewise 11/11/09 was an actual 11-11-11 event.  Numerologically speaking.

Sure, you can assign whatever meaning you like to a date while dropping a number here or there.  And certainly whatever you give focus to, you will manifest to some degree.  You can draw inspiration from it and place yourself in the shoes of that energetic pool.  You can use it to mark a special event so you’ll never forget it.

However, Pythagorically speaking (numerologically), doing any of these does not force the Divine Code of Cycle to be something different today than it would be.  It does not impart divine meaning, based on numbers alone, that it does not already have.  And honestly, it denies the true Divine message that particular number vibration does express.  Simply ignoring the 2 is not numerology.   Call it something else.

Today’s vibration? 2/6 – partnership and family (community) and the dichotomy between partnerships (one-on-one and intimate) and group relationships (as we experience in families).

Other parts of the world are already working with the energetic paradoxical merger between the seeming opposites of the Divine Child and the Perfectionistic Scribe.  (Think dance floor vs. library.)

Dances with books anyone?
