September 2011 Heretical Numerology Watch


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

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

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

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

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

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

~ Brian Tracy

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

August 2011 Heretical Numerology Watch


“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.

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.
