A friend asked for some clarification after my last numerology post, which led into a brief explanation about the Master Number 44. I thought you might be interested as well, so I’m sharing a bit of my response below.
August 31st was our first 44 day of the year 2012. Master Number 44/8 is the vibration of self-discipline, abundance and success through Balance. But this isn’t the kind of success summation that everyone seems to preach about 8s. 8 is not necessarily about “success” as most fluff books out there tend to promote. And though the Chinese consider it lucky, it’s not because of the Divine aspects of the archetype, but because the interpretation was colored by culture as they associated the number 8 with that of royalty. The dichotomy between peasants and hierarchy. 8 is a leadership number that demands great responsibility, but tends to be more openly on a pedestal. And a tedious one at times at that.
44 is the Master Vibration of Dynamic Inspiration. And it requires balance between worlds. Balancing family/work, spirit/earth, emotion/logic, etc. with a strong foundation established in each. Foundation is key. Without a good foundation, things fail. Like the house built on sand. 44 tests that foundation. But it also tests connection between “earth and sky.” Foundation is half the equation. A building isn’t enough to just have the foundation and skeleton. The realization of the vision involves the rest, the design, the architecture. You won’t get there without the planning and work (4), but it’s not complete until the rest is put together – the part everyone sees and focuses on (8). That’s why 8 is the number of completion. And that’s why it’s so attractive and glowy. It’s like a celebrity. It’s the pretties we see in that fantastic feat of architecture. No one tends to admire the foundation, but the building would not be possible without it.
I find that Balancing issues come up around 44. We have also in history had events like the tsunami in 2004 fall on 44 days.
August 30th led into the energy with a hidden 11, the Job number, which led into the small numerological arch of influence I’ve already noted between the two days. Btw, that’s Job as in the old testament bible story about Job. 11 is a number of spiritual leadership and testing. Lessons under 11 are not about the physical things that happen, but about what you do and the spiritual side of the happening.
