In numerology notes:
Well, of late, we’ve been introduced to a smattering of energies that have contained both a karmic “reaping what you’ve sewn” nature and a “sometimes things happen because a spiritual lesson is involved” nature. The later cycle of energy will continue through this month as we continue to experience all energies in a compounded way. And it will culminate with the last week of the month, involving a numerological/astrological “conjunction.” Numerological Dates of Interest continue this month for September 24-25 (which coincide with a Mercury Retrograde) and Monday the 29th. Remember that “surprising change” energy that involves challenges and “truth revealed” will continue during this time. Watch for the heart of a matter to reveal itself to you by the end of this month. Please re-read my numerology outlook from last month before you let this cycle go by. I mean it – this cycle is not over yet. Go back and re-read it now.
October affords us a special brief respite this year. Energies layer up to provide October to us as The Month of Opportunity and even at points – Fruition. This is an important time to note and take advantage of. Because truly, October will lay the foundation for the next year, not the typical January 2009. Now is the New Year! In other words, October is the month to be laying out New Year’s resolutions and plans to implement before 2008 ends! You have goals in mind for 2009? NOW’s the time to get started! Don’t wait for New Year’s! Make plans now to implement by the end of 2008 as a foundation for next year.
It is also a time for “Dream Big.” Is there something you’ve put on the back burner because you didn’t think it could be done or you’d have the time or life energy to accomplish it? Is your heart tied into it? If so, pull that back off the shelf, dust it off and start allowing yourself to experience the potential energies of it now. Why? Because the energy we are currently working with this year and the energy cycle we’re moving into all involve great potential for success and outcomes that were never possible before. Now’s a time for “go for it” and playing with the possible plans and angles of something you might have thought just couldn’t happen for you.
My recommendation during this time is to pick *something,* just one thing if nothing else, that you give a second chance or make a run for it. But here’s the catch – it must be in Joy and something your heart is tied up into. And you must forsake all fear and remain lighthearted about it. If it’s the only way you can do this, and not get too wrapped around the axle about taking a risk, then please think of it like a fun trip to Vegas and throwing a ten in the slot machine just ‘cuz. However, laying out a plan does mean putting some thought and effort into it. Not enough to become a painful chore, but enough to gain a start.
When that opportunity just drops into your lap, don’t ignore or discount it this time either! And put aside some of those expectations. Traditional ways of looking at things will not work with this energy!
(On a peripheral note – in looking ahead, October might be a better time to knock out some holiday preparations for Thanksgiving and Christmas, and anything else needing attention before year end, *early.* You’ll thank me later….)
Something to note: Mercury Retrograde begins September 24th through October 15th. As most know, Mercury governs communication and often during a Merc Retro we find communication gone awry. It is important to realize this energy is colliding with some very intense Master Number energies that happen to fall at the very beginning and near the end of this particular retrograde. When compounded Master Number energy is present, many people react different ways to it, but often feel under a great deal of pressure. And many people are not well accustomed to the energy, which is both excellent for spiritual work/success and spiritual challenges/lessons. During a Merc Retro when people find themselves having trouble communicating, this can become even more intense. It is important to be the bigger person and remain patient during all these times. Others will “act out” due to the energy’s demand of them. So relax, center, protect yourself, love them, watch out for the people too stressed to drive right, be patient and channel this energy in a way that you choose and desire. Lots of raw energy is available during this time to accomplish great things. But a pure heart and place of being is a must. A great time for slowing down, more reflection and even at times reaction and not proaction. So back to what I said, try on the energy of a new possibility and play around with a plan. By 2nd half of October, you should be able to take it from the intangible state of thought and idea to a more tangible direction of plan of action and actuality. Culmination will come later, now is the time for seed.
Upcoming dates of numerological interest are:
September 24-25 (which coincides with a Mercury Retrograde), Monday the 29th, the weekend of October 11th-13th, October 22-24 and Monday October 27th. As I always caution, be prepared to stay calm and take their time getting to and from work and school on Mondays: September 29th, October 13th and October 27th. When intensified energies like this fall on a Monday, we always see more auto accidents in the Austin area. Monday, October 13th in particular is a date I am eyeing carefully.
