Mercury is in retrograde again after a power pack of numerological combos, along with some other elements an astrology friend of mine was trying to explain to me. Then there’s a retrograde in Chiron around the corner as we wrap up this Merc Retro and a double master number day as well. If you’d like to read more about that, see Anne’s article on the matter here: http://www.stariel.com/?p=580. Some very interesting and intense patterns indeed, including some patterns that occur only once in thousands of years.
Yes, we do live in interesting times. So interesting in fact, that we may not notice just how interesting as we feel overwhelmed by the sea of “interesting” things we tread in. (How’s that for interesting…?)
As I’ve mentioned before, many mystics will not “predict” or write much during a Mercury Retrograde, since it involves communication. After all, who wants their message to be misconstrued. When Mercury goes retrograde, messages often miss their mark. Who wants that?
However, I find that perhaps it’s the means of communication that dictates how Mercury operates during this time. No one says that communication stops during this time – just that it shifts. And a Mercury Retrograde is supposed to be a good time for reflection. So perhaps it’s about taking our communication to a different level?
Granted, I have not felt as motivated to write during this time, though my mind is going a mile a minute. It seems to happen every Merc Retro too. I am more wistful, meditative and philosophical for sure and my writing tends to turn into stream of consciousness. But I’m not the type to just hole up in a cave somewhere either. (Well, maybe on occasion it might be nice….) And I know ya’ll are looking to see what’s going on next.
I’m guessing I’m not the only one out there in the mood for something a little more like a story or a question and a little less like a lesson or a statement. It is a great time to ponder the meanings of Life.
So instead of making statements, lets bring up questions, shall we?
In thinking about what I wanted to write for my next numerology segment, I have found myself (lately) less interested in what’s coming up and more interested in what has happened in the past. (Reflection again!) That within questions of the past lie answers of today. I continually see unique interesting patterns around me in the world. And in recognition of the existence of those patterns, I spend my soul pondering and reflecting. Which in turn leads me toward seeking out more numerological patterns in history to add to my ever increasing notes.
For instance, what did it look like in number patterns around the time of the founding of the US? There are some very interesting patterns when you look at key events in our nation’s creation. After all, revolution did not happen overnight. Our identity as a people evolved. So what did the dates of key events and triggers look like? 5 – the number of Freedom, Shifting Change and Evaluation – abounds in these US historical events, as do also the Master Numbers of 11 & 22. They pop up again and again.
It gets even more interesting when I continue my research into “11” years in our history – that which we have record of. 1721 was an 11 year before the birth of our nation. And in my search I came across a book I really look forward to reading (when it’s finally published) called: “THE FEVER OF 1721: The Epidemic that Ignited the American Revolution” by Stephen Cross.
When I look at the date in 1776 when congress voted and said – we must now write a declaration of independence, I find a master number. When that Declaration was voted on and adopted by congress, I find a 5. When the end of the process came with the vote and decree that the Declaration of Independence must be signed by all, another master number. How interesting – hmmm?
And it goes further. In our Declaration of Independence, the capitalization of the title is interesting. You can see it for yourself here: http://www.ushistory.org/declaration/document/image.htm.
We call ourselves “The United States of America.” Not just any ol’ United States, but THE United States of America. Significant emphasis there. And yet – look at the emphasis on the original declaration. You will notice certain parts are in large bold letters and part of it is completely de-emphasized. And additionally interesting is that the word “united” is neither emphasized, nor capitalized. The bold print is simply: States of America.
In numerology, one of our main principles of operation is that what is bound on Earth is bound in Heaven. That which before God and Man is anchored into stone (or history, as it were) is significant and what we look at.
I also live in the grand state of Texas, a state that was a nation before it became a state. And a state with similar parallels to the US as well. When I look at the date that Texas congress said – that’s it, things are bad – we’ve got to draft a declaration of independence, I find a master number. The declaration was written during the throes of war literally overnight. The very next day it was voted into acceptance – a 5 day. Then with battle and soldiers marching towards them, congress hastily wrapped up their business and adjourned – a master number day. The Republic of Texas is a name of master number influence, just as is States of America and The United States of America. And not surprisingly to me the processes of declaration, at the start and the finish for both Texas and the US, are all Master Number triggers.
Add to that my recent study into the last 100 years of US presidents – all of whom carried master numbers, with the exception of two who carried double 9s. We are surrounded by and drawn to master numbers and 5s in our society! Some of the most key members of society in our history hold master numbers! Take in science for instance: Einstein, Newton, Pythagoras, Stephen Hawking, Michio Kaku. Even in metaphysics we find Edgar Cayce. They all fall under the influence of master numbers. Dynamic historical leaders: George Washington, Patton, Thomas Paine, Thomas Jefferson (master number and LL of 5), John Quincy Adams, James Madison, James Monroe, Benjamin Franklin (master number and LL of 5), and I obviously could keep going on! They all have master numbers! Even our last election had four members all carrying master numbers for Life Lessons – one of them 33 and the rest all 11, while embarking on the first 11 year in 99 years in the western world. No matter what – someone with a life lesson of a master number (and all double digit master numbers being based on 11) was going to end up serving our nation at the highest levels! And now we get ready for the US to move into a 22 cycle. Master number cycles built upon master numbers. Again, and again, and again.
What do they all mean?
And therein I leave you…
…with the questions….
(Stay tuned for more historical numerological details.)
