“…a number is not just a number as you are not just a human, all that is a part of this universe is comprised of energy, frequencies, and vibrations.”

You Are Luminous

The Resonance of One

Identity. Integrity. Individual. Even the number 1 looks eerily similar to the letter/word “I,” which is a convenient reminder of its inherent meaning. In addition to the ego, personality and self though, this number can also signify wholeness and unity.

In these ways, the number One has a powerful resonance that invokes the very essence of divinity: it is both One and the Whole. It serves to remind us of ourselves, both in our uniqueness as well as in our belonging, in our bigness as well as our smallness.

One reminds us of our individual power as well as our innate longing. It’s a complex, internally challenging number that supports either egoic self-obsession or mindful source-awareness respective of whether we choose to avoid the discomfort of its spiritual dissonance or dive straight into it.

The Reflection of Eleven

Playing off of the themes of number One, Eleven packs a duel punch of both cosmic and self-awareness. Here we see the self and the other, standing parallel, in either opposition or support: 11.

For those resistant to the inherent longing for return to the Whole within their own identity, this resonance is even more challenging to the ego than that of the number One. It is essentially a divine mirror, shining back our truth, and if we are uncomfortable in our truth we will also be uncomfortable in the vibrations of Eleven.

Eleven may also be experienced as divine support, cosmic blessings and guidance for those of us who are willing to suspend cognition enough to hold space for the dissonance of the One and the Whole. An open heart will celebrate its opportunity to see itself fully in the divine mirror Eleven provides. For those doing the work, this frequency can even feel like a reprieve or recognition of the work their soul has been doing.

The Reactivity of 11/11

So what happens when the reflective energy of Eleven is itself further reflected by itself? COSMIC REVELATION EXPANSION!

We all have the opportunity to explore ourselves, our relationship to the divine, our relationship to the world and others, as well as the divine’s, the world’s and others’ relationships to us today too. Our sights will be clear, the truth will be obvious and celebrations, strategies and plans can all be well made.

We also have the number Four come into play in this number series, as now there are Four Ones total. Four is a foundational, solid and structural number. Think of the ancient practice of using cornerstones in the foundations of homes, these (primitively) Four stones were essentially the load bearers and made the home a sound and safe structure.

The potent reflective energy of Eleven reflecting Eleven combined with the incredible opportunity to solidifying foundational identities for ourselves in the vibrations of Four Ones makes the 11/11 portal one of the most empowering days of the entire year. Taking full advantage of this protal doesn’t have to be as complicated or nuanced as the numbers themselves either!

Intentionally Invoking the Potential of 11/11

Get out a journal and pen, but just sit. Tap into your center, that place within you where you feel the resonance of One, where your identity and the Source cease to exist separately.

Just sit. Notice what arises. Watch your emotions, thoughts and discomfort. Be the witness of your ego and Spirit for a while. No judgements, just observe:

  • What does your ego sound/feel like?
  • What does Spirit sound/feel like?
  • What reflections of your personal identity and connection to Source make your ego more or less upset?
  • What tactics does your ego use to try and be the “voice of reason” and how is Spirit combatting those insecurities?

Maintain compassion for yourself and even your ego throughout this process. Our egos are not purposeless accidents and actually exist to serve us. It is good and healthy to have awareness of potential dangers and even some fear. Unfortunately, modern society has grabbed hold of ego’s motivation – insecurity – while also losing sight of Spirit’s grace, and has consequently made us all a bit hypersensitive, but that still doesn’t make ego the enemy.

Once you’ve begun to clarify your ego and Spirit’s reflection of it within your center, begin to offer gratitude. You may start with Spirit because that is typically easier, but don’t leave out your ego! Thank it for its hypervigilance and desire to keep you safe. Thank it for its love and care, however misguided it may also be. Accept that it’s not perfect but it is trying and endeavor give it the grace Spirit provides.

When you feel the comfort, acceptance and love begin to bloom within your heart as consequence of your intentional gratitude reuniting the wholeness of Spirit with your personal identity, you have reached the point of ultimate potentially for the 11/11 portal. From this space of love and awareness, begin to identify cornerstones:

  • What are your top Four priorities in life?
  • What are the top Four core values or guiding principles you turn to when making important decisions?
  • If you had to choose only Four virtues to embody in this lifetime, what would they be?
  • If your friends and family were to describe you, what Four words would you hope they choose to use?

Now take a look at your answers to these questions and find the similarities. Narrow down your focus to your own Four, personally inspired cornerstones: these values/virtues have the potential to empower you by providing the pure clarity, focus and motivation that can only come through conscious conviction. This is your new foundation from which you will build your future!

Your Own Personal 11/11 Code

You will often see titles such as “activation code,” “angel code” or other divine “codes” assigned to the 11/11 portal. This is because being fully engaged with this energy can be incredibly transformative, rejuvenating and invigorating – much like you have recieved heavenly downloads, unlocking a magickal “code” that assists you in every possible area of life.

By doing the exercises above, you have essentially cracked this code for yourself; it is nothing more than learning to suspend judgements of our ego by accepting the divine grace of Source, and finding Truth within that unity. The code is the cornerstone virtues this grace enables us to discover and the multitude of blessings and clarity these virtues create in our lives once they are identified.

The code is acceptance, fully and wholly, while standing naked before the powerful reflection of divine glory. In this way, we are all called to step further into divinity today; learning to forgive and love even those parts of us that would steal our peace and joy. It is reclamation; it is Love.

Another week is dawning and I for one am grateful to have made it through the heart wrenching emotional gymnastics of last week’s soul-healing vibes. The cosmos wasted no time in shaking us all up and now that things have gotten real, real deep, we’re being told to relax and trust the divine.

This week’s spread was intuitive, moving across the chakra stones barrier in the middle of my table mat in a zigzag fashion; beginning at the top left, moving to the center right and then down to the bottom left before beginning again at the top right and mirroring the pattern on the opposite sides all the way down. I find the importance of feminine and masculine energies being brought into balance as well as the double helix form both indicated in this spread.

I began with the Shadowscapes Tarot Deck:

This Week’s Intuitive Spread

Acknowledgement

VII The Chariot (Shadowescapes Tarot Deck)

We have been seen! The Major Arcana card XII, The Chariot indicates that the shadowy journeys we’ve taken into the depths of raw, ugly yet essential truth are being recognized. We are being hailed as the captains of our own destiny’s and our guides are celebrating our autonomy, not through subjugation but rather, through glorious harmonization!

As the 11/11 portal opens on Monday, we start our week with a powerful suspension of time and space. The heavens, our ancestors and deities, are all pulling back at the edges of reality to create an endlessness in which we are given a chance to take that rejuvenating deep breath we’ve been longing for. This won’t look like a lazy day though, in fact, anticipate the flow state and don’t be surprised when you get a lot more than you planned done for a change.

The divine message of this day is: “I am a blessed child of the divine!”

A Challenge

XIX The Sun, Reversed (Shadowscapes Tarot Deck)

In the midst of this glorious and divinely supportive celebration, we are still being called to refine and explore our awareness. The Sun coming up reversed is not typically considered fortunate, as the Sun is one of the most fortunate cards in the deck and a reversal suggests density or conflict of some kind, yet I intuit this to indicate a highly fortunate opportunity all the same.

We are all being called to reconsider what success, joy and fortune mean to us. I feel this reversal is speaking more to an internal condition rather than an external circumstance. What are the ways in which you might be limiting the joy and luck in your life because of personal biases or conditioned beliefs? Be prepared to start asking this and questions like it on Tuesday the 12th when the moon reaches peak fullness in the sign of Taurus.

We would be wise to use these sesual, mindful Taurean energies and the illumination of the full moon to help us see gaps in our self-care and carve out long term plans for facilitating better habits for ourselves. Why must success equal the delegation of our needs or wants? Perhaps we can have every luxury, if only we stop waiting for others to provide them for us and do the work of reaping rewards for ourselves.

The divine message of this day is: “I am as happy as I could ever be, right now!”

Empowerment

I The Magician (Shadowscapes Tarot Deck)

The Magician card is the second card in the Major Arcana, denoted “I” because the Fool begins the set at “0.” This card is one of empowerment and asks us to look to ourselves for that which we need and desire.

Given the previous two cards, I intuit this energy to be further promoting a self-inventory of sorts. Recognize your autonomy the way your guides, deities and ancestors do; challenge any biases and dogma that keep you from the joy of each pure moment; finally, take notice of all your inherent gifts, talents and wealth. We all have so much we can be grateful for, if only we take the time to do so.

Set the limits of your wanting. Decide for yourself when more is no longer better. Make unpopular, genuine and authentic choices. See your personal human potential as the brilliantly unique gift that it is, not merely as a means to justify your existence.

Blessings Abounding

Source Dragon (Dragon Oracle Cards Deck)

Jupiter, the bearer of luck and prosperity, will begin traversing the Galactic Center on Wednesday the 13th. It will be in exact conjunction with the Center on the 19th but we will start to feel the powerful pull of this celestial alignment right away and continue to experience reverberations all the way up through the Sagittarius New Moon on the 26th. This Source Dragon card speaks directly to the power of this potent potentiality.

What does that mean for this week? Sit back, relax and get ready. It’s been watching and now, the cosmos has something it wants to show you!

The Galactic Center is at the very heart of our galaxy and consists of a black hole, a cosmic womb. When the planetary benefactor aligns with the heart of this womb, anything is possible – and with the numerological, astrological and divinatory support of the previous two days leading up to this alignment (which only happens every 12 years), we can all be sure that the divine itself is planting the seeds for our ultimate blessings to manifest!

Divine message for the 13th – 25th: “the entire cosmos aspires to bless me!”

Heart Work

Isis and Osiris (Goddesses Knowledge Card Deck)

The next card drawn encourages us not to lose sight of ourselves and our hard fought autonomy amidst all the intoxicating justifications of ego’s discontentment. Just because the divine has got our backs doesn’t mean our life’s work is done, but that’s no reason to deny ourselves the joy of living either.

Isis is one of the oldest goddesses in the Egyptian pantheon and is known for bringing her assassinated husband back to life. She is a moon goddess who gives birth to the sun. She represents the value of the fulness of life, including the dark night and even grief itself.

I believe Isis appears hear as a gentle reminder of our reversed Sun card’s message: we must question our conditions, limitations and biases. Perhaps our curses are truly blessings, disguised by our very own prejudices and perspectives. Perhaps a painless, lossless, mundane life isn’t really what we desire and we actually need the difficulties and challenges of life as much as we desire the celebrations and fortune.

Our challenges create strength in us, our weaknesses provide opportunities for growth and our love, in truth, is our commitment to preserving through pain, grief and sadness. As the divine showers us with love and affection this week, we have the perfect opportunity to look within and ask ourselves: “in what ways have I been limiting my happiness for the sake of my ego?”

Divine reminder in this card for this entire week: “my brokenness blesses!”

The Summation

The Runes Thurisaz, Tir and Ing (from top down)

Lastly, I pulled three Runes and got a beautiful summery for the week’s reading: “we are divinely supported and adored, we can rest assured that our victory is already ours; we accept the blessings of our birthright and enjoying the abundance of life’s glories right now!”

We must simply go forth and be the miracles we already are! I hope that we all find all the sensual, meaningful and glorious satisfaction available to us this week. If/when we feel the resistence to just dive into divine bliss, let’s ask ourselves: what could be more important?

Thurisaz = protection and luck
Tir = success and victory
Ing = accomplishment and relief

I wanted to do a bit of an astrology/numerology forecast for November today, but I’ve been in training all day and need to be up at 4am for Sadhana tomorrow. So, what I have is very brief and mostly intuitive!

Starting with a BANG!

I’m certainly feeling it! This month wastes no time getting things started, it might even feel like the chaos of October just keeps going – but so much has indeed changed.

October was all about redefining who we are, what we mean to this world and how we show up. November is about putting that into action. Coming off this freshly infused identity crisis/confirmation will carry some momentum, which is what we are experiencing now.

November packs a punch in its own right too though. 11 resonates as the first of the “angel numbers” and teaches us about our relationship to the divine. So even though things might still be hectic, you may have also noticed a cosmic shift to a more sacred or serious tone.

A Steady, Sensual Slowing…

The bustle of the beginning of this month will begin to slow as we all gradually settle into a new, more present and purposeful pace. Mercury has already turned retrograde on the 31st and is contributing to this retraction of outward energy flow.

Mercury won’t turn direct until November 20th, so in the interim, don’t push yourself – especially with regard to communication. Now is the time for personal contemplation. Really, truly allow yourself to integrate the happenings of the last week, month, year… Get cozy in your own mind and heart, the depth of your inner journey can only make for much more interesting holiday conversations anyway – and by that time Mercury will be more supportive too!

The noticable peak of this slowdown will begin in conjunction with the Taurus Full Moon on the 12th. We will all feel called to start making our surroundings more cozy, warm and comfortable. We will also feel called to communicate with others in more satisfying and sensual ways.

More of a draw to visit with friends and family, a desire to plan for the holidays and general good cheer are all possible. For those who are resistant however, this may result in an acute awareness of the cold, loneliness and isolation, bitterness and irritability, as well as a desire to retreat amidst a sense of entrapment. Senses will be heightened regardless, be mindful of how you employ them.

The Full Moon will be an ideal day for some divination if you desire. It will carry a reflective energy of your 2019 harvest.

A Gentle ReQuickening

We get to enjoy a slow build back up from Mercury turning direct on the 20th to Neptune making his turn direct on the 27th. The watery giant has been causing us to dive deeper into possibilities than ever for the past 5 months while traveling retrograde and we will all notice it’s snap “back to reality.”

Despite Neptune lacking the fiery energy of Mars or the Sun, I intuit this turn will still feel charged. Remember, water conducts electricity – get ready to feel a jolt!

The depths to which you have traveled will give you every chance to reach even higher highs. The key will be a willingness to flow with the current and release anything that might hinder your newly impassioned dreams. Allow the spiritual and emotional lessons of these past five months to nourish your truth and launch you even further into authenticity.

A Day for Ceremony

Conveniently, the day before Neptune turns direct, we have a New Moon in Sagittarius on the 26th. There could not be a more opportune time for a purposeful alignment with your goals. Take the time for a simple New Moon ceremony that day in which you write out your reflections of the past 5 months:

  • What were the major spiritual and emotional themes?
  • In what ways did you find yourself going deeper and what did you discover in those explorations?
  • What have you learned about your authenticity, ego and self-expression?
  • How have these things changed or inspired your dreams?

Once you have written yourself to the point of passion and gratitude for all the possibilities and opportunities you’ve already created for yourself (and not a moment sooner), pen a formal letter to the heavens. Tell Neptune himself what you want the charge of his turning direct to launch you towards!

Once your letter is complete, meditate with it. Use the archetypal archer vibration of the Sagittarius New Moon to shoot your letter out into the astral universe, following it all the way from your own bow and arrow to the heart/hands of Neptune on his watery throne. If you prefer, you can meditate with the archetype of any benevolent, heart-centered diety: Christ, Buddha, Kuan Yin, etc… Once you are finished you can keep or responsibly dispose of your letter.

That’s it! Feel free to dress it up with your own prayers, and light a candle or incense beforehand if you like too. The best ceremony ingredient is always your own personal intuition.

Surrender to the Rhythm

As you can see, there’s a bit of ebb and flow to come this November. Don’t fight it. Finesse it.

Find the rhythm and your own particular harmony. The cold doesn’t have to be bitter, the slowing doesn’t have to be tense. Relax.

‘Tis the season my friends! Let’s reclaim some holiday cheer and spread it ’round, far and near! Blessed be!
