This will be a long entry while we first – recap some information and then second – get to the point.
The month of July through the first week of August is quite an energetically intense time for us in the good ‘ol USA. We’ve just flipped into a national 22/4 annual cycle, we’re in an 11/2 year on the western calendar, with a new president and vice-president who both carry the life lessons of 11/2 (in their birthdays). And it just so happens to be that the way the equations add up this month, in this year, we hit some unique master number compounds – all around the same time as we experience 3 eclipses within a 30 day period.
Eclipses have throughout history been symbolic of cleansing and facing challenges. Master numbers are symbolic of facing spiritual challenges, the “hand of destiny” and holding ourselves to a higher standard. Spiritually speaking, seeing these events take place together, represents a very significant time to face, cleanse and overcome and denotes a more societal movement. That sort of process also generally brings with it an unveiling of some sort, and a revealing of truth – sometimes something we didn’t want to see. As such, I find myself taking note. All in all, it’s certainly an intense and busy time indeed.
OK, so what exactly does that mean? Eclipses, master numbers, astral events?
Though I may see significance in patterns around us, I do not adhere to the dire predictions or dramatic interpretations that have floated around about these eclipses being once in a lifetime events, or paving the way for the end of the world, or predicting a miriad of unlikely events or for that matter representing spiritual agreement with political parties or the like, etc., etc.. (True spirituality does not choose division.) And I’ve already basically addressed this position in a previous entry. However, as an addendum, I love what Anne from Stariel Astrology recently wrote about this matter as well! You can read her down to earth “rant” on recent astrological claims here: http://www.stariel.com/?p=953.
What I’m talking about comes from the recognition of the Duality of Life. That everything physical radiates into the spiritual and has an unending relationship and connection that cannot be broken. Part of this time is about spiritual challenges in your life. If you think you are “awake and aware” you may be tested to see if you really are. If you think you are a “good person” you might be challenged to see if you really are even under matters of great stress. If you believe in an honor code, you might be put to the metal to see if you stick by it, or run when the going gets tough. It is a time of testing and practice and it’s all here as a blessing to you. Purging is often a very healthy part of life.
First, let’s revisit a few details about this month that have already been provided on this blog previously. To shorten this particular post, I’ve re-compiled the bullet points here: https://hereticalnumerologist.wordpress.com/2009/07/23/recap-on-some-details-about-summer-2009/.
All such events happen with regularity. But in today’s world from a spiritual perspective, when I observe these events colliding with one another or layering, I get more interested in the punctuation of the present energy. And what we see is a time that allows for us to face things we haven’t faced.
I know, I know. We hear that rather frequently in the spiritual circles. But this month in general is a bit different and a bit more “grab your attention and yank” than others.
And so I have equated this to being somewhat like Zombies. Yes – ZOMBIES….
Why? Because it’s the perfect analogy for this. It’s most certainly a time when issues from the past can haunt elements of the present. Identities, realities and truths are challenged. What you see is not always what you get. What you believe is not always built on solid ground. Even sometimes what you believe your “issues” are.
So let’s take a look at “The Zombie Equation” here. When you get a mix of cleansing energies like this, things from the past, some you might have long thought dead and gone, can suddenly rise up out of the grave and appear right in front of you, to challenge you. Now it’s possible you might not even recognize them for what they are. After all a challenge of reality also brings itself into the mix here. You might not know what you’re even looking at, at first. And think about it, just how real would it seem to you at first if you did suddenly find yourself face to face with a zombie anyway? What-Huh…?
Energetically, this isn’t much different.
This cleansing pattern digs deep this time, which is where some of the surprise comes into play. Because the issues that come to surface for cleansing might not always be what you generally would expect. In terms of possible zombie analogies of “who” might come back to haunt you, it might not be mom or dad or an ex who surface to challenge you in their zombie form this time. This time, it just might be your distant Uncle Bob, or something else you might not have recognized having an issue with before, like say your neighbor’s old dog Fluffy. But suddenly it’s here now and in your face and you have to figure out what it is and deal with it.
You might not even recognize Uncle Bob at first when he pops up in your face. After all, you don’t recall him being on your “issue” radar, either ever or in forever. But suddenly, here’s Uncle Bob, in your face and threatening to take your heart and cause you great pain.
So a unique time like this grants the opportunity to dig deep and reveal issues that need attention so they can truly go away. These could be minor issues you didn’t pay attention to and these could be deep layers of issues you’ve been chipping away at for years.
It also presents an opportunity to “test your muster.” What happens inside of you when the zombies of your life come and threaten to take it away? What happens to your sense of Truth when your world is turned upside down or backwards or you are faced with something you’ve just never had to face before? What happens if you are shown a weakness you’ve never seen in yourself before? Or you are shown a fact or reality that you refused to believe existed before. Maybe Uncle Bob really isn’t such a nice guy. Maybe he really is a zombie and you’ve just got to accept that fact and deal with that.
The lesson which master numbers ask of us is “Will you still hold to your Truth, Commitment and Light no matter what?” Or when your zombies show up, do you look for someone to trip so you have a better chance to run? Your zombies won’t go away on their own. You won’t know of their existence unless they hunt you down to face them. They have to be recognized for who and what they are and they have to be faced. Only then can they be brought to final rest. So when Uncle Bob has risen from the grave and is chasing you, you need to stop running, turn and face him and see what he wants and carefully put him to rest. Just don’t let him take your heart.
I had intended to finish writing this article much sooner, but unfortunately, some zombies of my own got in the way…. Like me, you have to face them and deal with them so they don’t become permanent blockages in your Life.
So best of luck out there and wherever you are, give my regards to Uncle Bob.
