As I write this, we find ourselves under a Mercury retrograde, which often governs communication gone awry. And though unlike many of my colleagues, I do not avoid writing during this time, I will however focus on a more general outlook. I’m even teaching a numerology class during the retrograde and on a very intense Master Number day. Daring I tell ya. I’m really wild now. Although the Master Number energy present on September 24th (the day of my class) is perfect for spiritual teaching. Remember – it’s what you do with it. Channel that energy the direction it seeks to flow. If it seeks to be more reflective and spiritual, then that’s your focus. If it seeks to be more physical and emotional, then that’s the focus you need. It’s a tool – use it.
Jupiter is currently retrograde as well, still making physical and monetary goals harder to achieve and pushing us to more spiritual pursuits. However, it will go direct October 13. On top of that, in number energy there follows a lull after October 2 as we are sandwiched between two intense cycles of paradoxical energies that push us to our higher spiritual selves and away from physical pursuits as well. These energies also push trials and challenges our direction. A revealing of hidden truths and realities has been in operation with these number patterns, which we’ll find culminating in January. Suppose you’ve already noticed all these though?
It is a great time for us to be learning and growing. For it is only when we are faced with challenge that we can overcome. If you don’t know something is wrong, you can’t fix it and you don’t know what you don’t know. “Nature” is seeking to balance itself.
So many details are surfacing to challenge peoples ideas, ideals and preconceived notions. They are also surfacing to challenge “group think” or what I like to call “box think.” As a society, we are learning that as long as we insist on using boxes to label things as one or another, there will ultimately never be enough boxes. It is a time for us to face our illusions – and we all have them. No one, not I or even the most spiritual person in the world is exempt. If you are physical, this is present in your life. It is simply a sign of the plateau in development we are about to jump as a spiritual race. Everyone talks about the world evolving – this is part of that process, part of the answer everyone has been seeking. It is nothing to fear, nor is it something to feel you shouldn’t be affected by if you’re pursuing a spiritual life.
As of this writing, we are getting ready to launch into a week of intense energies that present many challenges, some of them very surprising. And the answer to these challenges in all cases comes ultimately to just this: It’s not what happens – it’s what you do and how you handle it. It is all about responsibility as a spiritual being and what that means. And it has little to do with the physical circumstances. Make the best decisions you can. Be careful with your words. Don’t give in to drama and keep it simple and cut to the soul of the matter.
Once we get through this pattern, numerologically it becomes a better time than it has been in a while for business. So for everyone that matters to, gear up and make your plans now to channel that energy spike. And as Jupiter goes direct in the middle of the month, even more so. For those in business, I believe October and Fall sales, probably Halloween in particular, will show strength. They might even be better than Xmas. Artistic endeavors also stand to do the best during this time, as do also all things that involve experiential entertaining and memories. That is where we should see some activity. And that kind of energy coupled with the usual energy of the Halloween/Fall holiday season should hold some significant spikes. However, the favor tips towards that which stands out, enhances social occasion and quality. Energy of the inventor and pioneer are strong at this time as well. So think in terms of new ways to do things that haven’t been done before. Serious business can be accomplished during this time, if we’re talking about buying substance. December sales energetically appear likely to have a short window spike, so prepare now.
A note on recent focus on 9-09-2009 and 9-11-2009….
As I’ve mentioned before, I do not necessarily support emphasis on certain dates on this blog just because everyone else is talking about it. Nor do I think you likely read my blog to hear the same information you get from everyone else. Why bring it up? Because my purpose is to teach. Why not bring it up sooner? Because it is not my purpose to divide, or distract anyone from pursuing a more spiritual ideal or the positive focus taking place at that time.
There are important messages in number patterns that should not be ignored. However, numerologically…. 9-9-2009 is not a 9 day, it is an 11 day, which we get roughly 3 times a month. And that date is not really strong in 9 energy numerologically, it would be considered strong in 11 energy. Because 9 is the number that supports and never takes away from another vibration. It serves to enhance others, not take over the lime light.
Dropping the 2 in 2009 is a numerological no-no. The true most recent 9-9-9 day was 9-9-2007. Which I preached about back then. 9-11-2009 has a little more significance, but not in the sea of note we are experiencing this year. It was not enough for me to note this time, even though Pluto did also go direct on that date.
Anything you choose to give focus to will manifest by spiritual law. When the world focuses on a particular date, yes, something can most definitely manifest. And ultimately whatever it takes to get folks to focus on more positive things is fine for me. If focusing on 9-09-2009 brings folks to a place of harmony, and helps them strive to be a better person and love their fellow man, then great. It becomes a great tool. However, it is not my purpose in this blog to note that which is emphasized by the physical. My purpose is to note those patterns which are Divinely present without regard to Mankind’s focus. They exist with or without our attention. Numerologically, I did not find 9-09-2009 to be significant of and by itself. It only becomes significant because of temporary physical focus. This does not make it the same type of energy and message present divinely within number patterns rooted at the core.
Patterns that do have divinely ordained messages from their core…. As you will notice below, November 11 is highlighted in red. There is a reason for that. It will be a very powerful date. And likely the world will focus on it, increasing the energetic reality of it on both spiritual and physical planes. Great things are afoot and this energy is powerful for all things spiritual. I share with you now: I am watching the entire week that date falls within. So should you.
More next time…..
