numerology

2018: Eleven-ness

The numerology for each year gives us some guidelines for what sort of energies will be productive or a priority during that year.  But numerology is much deeper than using just one number; the many numbers that make up your chart, as well as the numbers of the country, state and city in which you live, all have an influence on how you’ll be able to interact with those energies.  It’s rather like trying to live your life guided by the sun sign astrology feature in the newspaper.

That said, for those who know their chart, understanding the universal energies drawn from the calendar give a context for the more personal energies of the year.  (And, of course, for those who don’t know their chart, guess who can familiarize you with yours?)

This year, 2018, sums to a visionary 11 year.   Yes, we usually reduce numbers to a single digit.  But when we have double digits, we have what are called Master numbers.  They’re the numbers that put us in touch with spiritual lessons or requirements.  11 is more about us and the Universe/Divine/Cosmos/God/Pick the designation that works for you, than it is about us and the world around us.  11 asks us to open up in new ways and at new depths, to be receptive to the very personal voice of the Divine.  Our actions, our words, our goals, can all become a channel for the Divine.  We become a Divine messenger.  In our relationship to the world around us, we become more aware of our true identity and more understanding and accepting of the identity of others.  Our imagination is vivid and fruitful, pointing us toward applications for our dreams.  If you’re seeking a new habit to cultivate, meditation or contemplation fits 11 energies well (if you’re already meditating, yay you!).

Depending on the numbers in your chart, and the depth and experience of your spiritual journey, you may find yourself caught in some of the 11 difficulties.  Those who are predisposed, withdraw from the demands of the human journey, neglecting their lives to get lost in their dreams.  Their spirituality is ungrounded, their ideals are removed from practical reality.  Others have the language of spirituality and vision, but the motivation is for personal power or material gain.  There’s no Divine content to their selfish aim for control.  Some of us are so intensely sensitive, and lack the necessary spiritual preparation, that we find our nerves frazzled, sometimes to the point of dysfunction.  Some will deny ideals altogether, pointing to the selective “realities” that have always been part of human habit.   Because we’re looking at 11 in the Universal Year position, you’ll see these patterns of misuse of the 11 energy in very public, as well as private, arenas.

If you find yourself falling into one of these patterns, step the 11 energy down to the relationship 2.  Focus on the beauty of meeting each other as different individuals.  The power structures here are totally horizontal; there are no hierarchies.  Each of us has our own Divine message to convey; each of our messages are integral to universal benefit.  And, if the message is to help someone else, rock and roll with developing that relationship.  Just don’t lose your sense of self in giving assistance; and definitely don’t make it about elevating yourself above whoever you’re helping.

The digits that make up 2018 will also play out in the background.  8 demands integrity, so yours will need to be impeccable.  We’ll watch all sorts of integrity issues come up for reckoning.  If your integrity is aligned with the Divine, you’ll find that 2018 can be a time of harvest, of successfully reaping what you’ve sown.   The individual consciousness of the 1, the self-awareness and responsibility, will continue to be on the table (we’ve seen it since 2010).  0 is the “God” number, the number out of time, the number of that which is unexpected and out of “normal” control.  These are the surprising synchronicities that offer confirmation or redirection.  It offers opportunities that are well-aligned with the 11.  If we’re all tuning in to the Cosmic channel, those “sledgehammer” moments that come when we’re not aligned with the Universe are less frequent.  It’s clear we’ve been in the soup with that, and will continue to be throughout this century.  Finally, the demands of the millennium – sensitivity to each other, learning to cooperate, learning to prioritize relationship – will unfold based on integrity, individuation and the unimaginable voice of the Divine.  Without restricting your receptivity, listen with an ear to those elements, as you develop your 11-ness, alongside the rest of humanity.

Those who appreciate Tarot correspondences, look to either XI Justice or XI Strength (depending on the method you use).  You will appreciate that VIII Justice/Strength will also be included as a supporting energy, along with I The Magician, 0 The Fool and II The High Priestess.

Use this context to thrive on the planet this year.

Structuring Change

1506 NumbersSome changes are easy and feel very freeing. Others are more demanding and require that we learn to work with new limitations.

So guess which one is up for this month?

Yeah, *sigh*, it’s the one we’re less likely to choose.

It’s a month where our past decisions in favour of unfettered slackerdom will come to bite us in the hindmost body part. Or where self-serving structures will be broken apart in favour of those that serve a larger community.

If revolutions and ineffectual complaints are going on around us, we don’t have to buy in. Focus on what changes you want to see, imagine the structures that will support making them happen and take a leadership role in getting them in place.

Even though it’s an uphill climb this month – over rocky ground – the energies support change that benefits the community. Consider the obstacles as things that turn up to make your structures even stronger. Don’t give up!

Hard Time

1505 Numbers

Oh, would that there were an easier path. Not so much this month.

We’ve got a combination here that indicates a whole lot of hard work. And that’s the positive possibility.

On the negative side, we’ve got a bunch of rigid, dogmatic individuals butting heads, with no one ready to back down. We’ll be up against the kettle of fish we’ve put ourselves into as a species. It’s time to deal with the places that we were total slackers, expecting others to handle the issues. Reckoning time, so to speak.

Everyone’s up against their limitations, especially those they’ve created themselves. Obstinacy is the bugaboo of the month. The year, in general, brings out abilities to take charge and move forward. But those abilities are severely hindered by obstinate individuality, by connection to detail rather than the big picture. I rarely suggest that you stop hugging trees, but this month I will. Instead, hug the whole dang forest.

Those who accept responsibility for their part in the difficult situations will be the ones who can move things forward. They’ll be doing more than their share, but they’ll be making use of the positive possibilities this month. All that detail work and organization has to happen (remember, we’re all making up for lost time), but it will happen successfully only with constant input and with constant attention to the big picture.

I know it’s not an easy environment to be in the midst of, but use the energies to clean up old stuff when it presents itself. Overspending, letting others handle what you should be managing, selfish bulldozing of others needs are all areas that come up for management. It’s nose to the grindstone to handle the cleanup, but there’s deep progress to be made.

If it feels like a prison sentence, at least it’s a short 31-day sentence. The alternative is a much higher pile of, er, poop to clean up next time this sort of energy cycles around.




Numerology is one of the especially helpful tools for making the best use of energies we’d rather skip.  Get in touch when you need.

Expressing Integrity

1504 Numbers

There’s a special push to put things into form this month. Building projects that have been on hold resume construction. Businesses that have been a nebulous idea are finally incorporated. Sculptors love this energy, because they’re all about expression through form.

The energy can be summed up as expression with form and integrity. In the arts, this is also a satisfying energy for dancers and choreographers, as long as they’re not trying to overdo and push their physical limits. Focus on the beauty of the line and what you mean to express with it.

For the rest of us mere mortals, attending art exhibits or any of the performing arts (with especial emphasis on sculpture and dance) will allow us to be witness to those remarkable moments of artistic genius.

Expressing ourselves through our businesses and through the businesses we choose to be associated with is also a strong encouragement this month. Again, it’s a time to ask whether our business dealings express who we are; what’s our integrity in the world of commerce?

The energy is social this month and can favour cliques and societies. That can cause sore feelings amoung outsiders. If you’re on the outside, find connections with others by speaking your truth with consideration for the differences in people. In fact, that’s great advice for everyone this month! If you’re an insider, enjoy your special connections but be sensitive to exclusivity or superiority complexes.

Whatever the opportunities, express yourself!

Elegant Expression

1503 2005divinemessenger
Divine Messenger, Colin Terris, paperweight, 2005

There’s an elegance and visionary quality to the numbers for March. It’s an excellent time to be open for Divine inspiration pertaining to your involvement in business or those areas where you’re the one in charge. How do you express yourself on the material plane?

Decision-making can feel a little more dicey than at other times this year, and much more so than last month. We’re all of a more divided mind, perhaps feeling one thing while thinking another, perhaps able to feel equal weight in the pros and cons. Often, it’s likely to be, “I want to do one thing, but I know I should be more considerate”.

This combination of numbers can lead to some uncomfortable feelings, with a sense of crankiness about facing things we don’t want to look at. Specifically, how our materialism impacts our relationships or our sense of Divine “rightness”. We could be hyper-sensitive to criticism about putting our position before our friendships, or putting the bottom line before the people in the company. That can apply to us as consumers, as well as producers.

There are beautiful opportunities to make materialism and commerce an avenue for heart-felt connections, if we stay open to inspiration. Be more attached to being a messenger for the Universe than to the empire you’ve built up – or to any guilt associated with your empire-building. Put it aside and connect with the people around you, discovering how leaders can connect with the individuals they lead as peers.

Yes, as peers! There’s a brilliant push toward cooperation, that paradisiacal notion of walking side by side, even with the Creator. We all get to be expressive in this paradigm.

Let your material side bring you closer to others!

 



Finding how your personal numbers rub up against the Universal energies we’re discussing is just one way you can make use of my services.

You can look at the January and February posts for an idea of the flow of the year so far.

Power On!

1502 power on

February is a very upfront, in your face, make it happen month this year.

Thoughtlessness and self-absorption are in the air. Power tripping is the mode of choice.

But that end of the energy spectrum will quickly be slapped down. Or, at least, not rewarded. Eight demands integrity, honesty and a connection with the Divine for success.

Remember that we’re looking at the universal energies each month. Your personal energies may or may not blend well with what’s going on around you. It’s helpful to know the backdrop against which you’ll be using your own energies. These looks at the trends of the universal month can help you understand internal conflicts you may be coming up against. And they can help you ride the currents.

Even if you’re not a business person, this is a very business-oriented month, with lots of individualism centre stage. Sounds very much like the American brand of capitalism. We all know the down side when that runs amok. But that’s not the whole picture.

The Universe will provide opportunities for self-awareness this month. How are you when you stand alone? What’s your leadership style? Do you take opportunities to use your marketable skills?   Do you jump on the chance to be centre stage?

If you’ve been looking to start a business venture, the universal flow can help you. It’s a matter of jumping on opportunities, rather than having to push to get something going.

And here’s the secret key to the month: sensitivity to others is a powerful tool to self-understanding. As you’re jostling others, elbow to elbow this month, remember that we’re all part of a big mix. Recognize that being yourself is an important trigger to allowing others to be themselves.

How do you take executive action in your own life? It’s time to take charge!





It can be exciting to make use of numerology in your own life.   Get in touch to discuss your chart!


Here‘s January’s post on the numbers for the year.  You’ll be able to find links for the rest of the year at the bottom of the post.

As Above, So Below

1501 Numbers

We’re full tilt speeding into our 8 Universal Year (2 + 0 + 1 + 5).

It’s a very good thing that we recharged our batteries last year by deepening our connection with the sacred. We’ll need that constant energy source this year.

Whatever we’re dealing with on a personal level (and you can get help with your personal numerology chart, of course), it will be against the background of the demanding 8.

8 is often seen as the business number, the number of commerce and executive action. It’s seen as a materialistic number.

But that ain’t but the half of it. Those connected circles in the 8 demand an Hermetic “as above, so below” accountability. We don’t get to dive into money-making and material accumulation without taking our sacred side with us.

On its side, 8 becomes the infinity symbol, the lemniscate. Those qualities of balance and connection between opposites don’t disappear just because we turn the figure on its end. If we let our aggressive side take the leash, without attention to our receptive side, life will bite us in the arse until we’re balanced again.

So, as we dive into the busy-ness of commerce, we need to stay connected with the sacred.

And this is a great month to explore what commerce is really about. How does it allow us to connect with each other’s true needs? How does it allow us the space to be honest with each other? How can it be all-inclusive?

The impetus will be expansive and outward this month. Allow yourself to be drawn into a bigger environment, higher altitudes. Leave behind what’s outdated, what no longer reflects your true self.

You’ll find your feet are still on the ground. You haven’t flown, you’ve just stretched!

Embody the Sacred

EE

We’re at the end of our journey with the sacred this year. Next year we jump into concerns in the outer world, where it can be easy to lose sight of the sacred. But next year requires a deep connection between our inner world and the outer world. In other words, we’ll be required to live the sacred in our “real” lives. Just what we’ve been exploring this year but amped up a bunch (highly technical measurement).

So what do you hold sacred? Is it time with your children or friends or spouse? It is a monthly massage or therapy session? Is it being on time? Or well-dressed? Or in a good mood in public?

Put that way, isn’t it just another way of saying, what must never change?

Is it really the monthly massage or being well-dressed that you hold sacred? Or is it some value or belief behind those things that you hold sacred?

And how have the things or values you hold sacred changed through your exploration this year? (Here we are, asking about changing that which must never change!)

This is the month that allows us to test out our new way of life. And we’re testing communally to see how what we keep sacred fits into the world around us.

Reach into your community. See how your sacred self can be of service. As often happened this year (and will continue to happen), if you make a few cooperative connections, the Universe will ramp things up and find you more.

Keep what’s sacred active!

Sacred Integration

141102 Rumi

We’re almost to the end of our year of exploring the Sacred.   November gives us the chance to integrate, to complete that exploration.

We’ve been using our skills of analysis in our year-long discovery. How can you complete your analysis of the sacred this month?

The numbers of November are related to those of February, when we were expanding the sacred. This late in the year, the sense of expansion is very different.

Now, we’re emphasizing the wrap-up of our process. The expansion has to do with our interconnectedness. We can look to our exploration of the social sacred in August.

Rather than seeing our differences and finding ways to blend our different communities, the call this month is to see how each of us embodies all of the sacred, every last bit of it. We’re finding the level where our differences are illusory.

Be curious this month, especially about your connection to others. The more you explore individual connections with an eye to the universal, the more the Universe will provide you new opportunities to connect and explore.

Expand your awareness of your personal sacred to encompass the entire Sacred Ocean!
