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

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

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

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

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

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

January/February 2009 Numerology Watch…

A revisit to upcoming Dates of Numerological Significance and general analysis….

I’d like to take your hand and lead you down a path of consideration as we explore numerological significance in (western) world dates together. Instead of simply just “telling you,” I’d like to show you how to consider the possibilities and implications of various energies present in our times, right now. A mini class in exploration, if you will.

Well, so here we are. January 21, 2009. A date with master number 33 energy inherent, as well as other underlying master number energies that compound the vibrational structure as well, during an 11 year no less. All in all, a chord of magnificence for certain. Falling right here on this date, the date after the inaugeration of the first black president in US history. What an exciting time!

In recap, currently the dates of numerological significance for this first month of the first 11 year in 99 years and first 11 year in the new millennium, are January 10, January 21 and January 29, with a lesser value placed on January 19th and 26th (numerologically speaking). In looking ahead to February, we also see Feb 9th and Feb 20th containing very intense structures as well. A little lesser so, Feb 16th and the arc from Feb 25-27th.

Ok, from this point of reference, there is an arc of more intense structure between the dates of the 21st and the 29th, with another “inner” arc of influence between the 26th and the 29th. I expect the last week of January to be very interesting this month. As well as the first half of February.

To accentuate this, we find ourselves experiencing an annular solar eclipse on January 26th, colliding with the numerological vibrations, as well as a prenumbral lunar eclipse on Feb 9th, again colliding with intense numerogical master number energies.

Next, we see a collision of Mercury Retrograde in the mix. Mercury is currently retrograde January 10th through February 1st. As we all will remember what our astrology experts say – Mercury Retrograde usually feels strongest at the beginning and the ending and governs the flow of communication, as well as mechanism. So keep in mind that all that paperwork, communication issues, car troubles, etc. can be blamed on this and simply understand that you may not be getting all the right messages. If you are communicating with someone at work or home, and it just seems that no one can agree or understand each other, see if you can put it off until the retrograde is over. Might go a little easier then. Plus it may just take more time to process those deadlines. Just be patient and allow this demand for a process of reflection over action. (Sometimes we need a period to regroup and simply think/plan, before proceeding.) Merc Retros are there to give us a fall-back period to re-evaluate and reflect and less action. Pushing hard to act, act, act, as we are wont to do in the US, will only result in frustrations as you deal with the world. Some people handle them better than others, but in the end, no man is an island and we all affect one another.

Many astrologists I know actually prepare far in advance their predictions and calculations, just to avoid publishing or doing them during a merc retro. And they often advise the world toward the same kind of action. You might think, with advice like that, I’d avoid writing on today at all! Still, with the energies being so focussed on reflection, I find today’s message right in line, even if it does ramble a little. We are in the energetic space of reflection, so let’s be emmersed in that and see where it takes us.

Combining a merc retro with intense master number influence always seems to have an extremely “cleansing” effect. Not always very pleasant. If there was ever a time to really focus on the energies of unconditional love, it is now. Unconditional love is something that is very patient and should be available to everyone around you. If everyone used these intense periods of numerological and astrological energies to simply express the merits of love, patience, faith and goodness, things would work a whole lot more smoothly in the world!

Additionally, I find it interesting that both MLK Day and the upcoming President’s Day, both fall on dates that contain *hidden* master number 11 energies (though a little less combination of energies than the other dates I’ve focussed on above). With our new president’s life lesson also being an 11, I find this very interesting. And undoubtedly, President Obama must be really feeling the intensity of these dates as they couple with the strongest number vibration in his own personal vibrational chord.

Didn’t know our President Obama was a master number person? Why yes, indeed he is. And with his life lesson (what he is here to learn and become) being master number 11 – while falling during our first 11 year in 99 years, his life will be very intense as these energies compound. Anytime vibrations around you collide with your own personal vibrations, it compounds the energy for you, in your life and experience. This compounding is considered among the ultimate of tests and challenges. Will you really be all you are supposed to be with honor and light? Even when you are inside an energetic pressure pot? We all experience these testing periods in our own ways. Some of us have more intense challenges to overcome than others. That’s fine. It’s supposed to be that way. Some of us are older souls than others too. But our new president is right smack in the middle of one of the biggest intensity periods of his life – and he has now taken on one of the most pressurized and demanding jobs in the world. If anyone is in need of our prayers, as he strives to be the best leader he can be and make the best of hard decisions he can, it is President Obama. This is not about politics. I’m not one to believe in organized politics and truthfully numbers do not “choose sides” either. It is however about the one position of responsibility in the world that receives a great deal of energetic focus, both positive and negative. And about doing what is right and Light. Our leadership always deserves our prayers. Ever notice how every single president goes grey headed and ages very quickly in a short period of time?

Now, back to dates. What does it mean when I say there’s an intense compounding of energies on certain dates? Well, keep in mind, this is neither good nor bad. It’s simply intense, raw divine energy. And how the day manifests physically can be either extremely positive, or extremely not. These are the days that test the character of men and women from every walk, and depending on their core number essences, some more than others. And often, the lessons inherent are spiritual in nature, not physical. It’s about what you do morally as a soul, and less what you do physically as a person. Still, other master numerological combinations do manifest in very big physical ways. The tsunami a few years ago is one example. Hurricane Gustav made landfall in the US on a master number day. Hurricane Ike’s beginning, middle and end all took place on master number days. As did Kosovo’s declaration of independence. When these energies are reinforced and compounded by other elements, say astrologically, then we see a compounding effect even far greater.

Usually, these sorts of things happen on a very personal level. And as we all know, our personal struggles and even triumphs are not necessarily something that culminates into world news or history. So we want to look at the energy as it plays on us as a society as a whole. Do we as a societal whole respond positively or negatively to these vibrations? And what kinds of things do we tend to manifest under these pressures? I find that often it is events that change the course of history, or change the course of our lives. Are we always conscious in the moment, on the day, that history is being made? No, not always. But when we look back on that day in history, when events of the time become more public knowledge, we may find that a special person or a special set of events, who/that change everything from that point forward, are tied to dates such as these. Master Numbers, like all numbers, are raw Divine energy. However Master Numbers appeal to a higher playing field and a higher ideal. They issue challenges and demand purity of heart. And they urge us towards a higher vibrational existence, where service to the greatest of good rules at the highest level. This is the energy inherent in these compounded days. And channeling that energy to these higher ideals can make all the life altering difference in the world. Resisting the call of these energies, on the other hand, can equally cause great trial or loss. The choice is ultimately ours.
