Numerology/Astrology for 11/11/16
11/11/16 is the number 4. It is time to move in the direction of acceptance for a new world that we are going to experience. Remember, each of us chose to be here at this particular time and place for a reason. What is your reason? Mine is to be a beacon of hope for humanity. That means that I hold the light of hope regardless of what the external world is doing. Look at the Dalai Lama. He held his position of compassion when everything was taken from him. Others tried to take his title, his country, and almost his life. It is in these moments where you are tested in order to hone your skill set. You cannot be good at a thing if you are not put through some paces. You cannot know who you truly are if life does not show you the mirror of your own denial and distortion. Regardless of who you are and what you wanted, each of us will have to deal with the reality as it is. I believe this is a lesson in being more present and less asleep. I think in the past many of us have allowed people of government and power to control your life because you were unwilling to fully participate. This is going to be a time when you will have no choice but to recognize fully each and every moment. You may or may not participate. Each choice is part of your personal karmic journey. The Moon is in Aries, and the stars are ready to get something started! But a Mercury-Jupiter semi-square this morning might point to many talks that don’t lead anywhere substantial. It is highly likely that you might experience information overload, and you are not seeing all the details right now. Be careful to not jump to conclusions. Monotonous mental tasks and routines are harder to do under this influence, and your mind feels unfocused and restless. Tonight, Venus moves into the sign of Capricorn, where it will stay until December 7th. Venus in Capricorn is a cycle in which security and stability in your relationships are paramount. You are more cautious with your emotions and feelings, which is wise because of the intense levels of emotional volatility. You might also be somewhat skeptical of others’ expressions of affection, sensing or imagining ulterior motives below the surface. Longevity is important to you under this influence. All things will take time to find the clarity and balance. There is a formality to Capricorn that can make personal expressions seem awkward and forced, so know that what you say and do will have an awkward and stressed appearance to others. However, this cycle offers you the opportunity to consider some of the practical issues of your relations and to work on making your partnerships work in the real world. A dose of realism in your personal life can help you to feel more grounded and secure in the long run. This is a time of inner work, meditation, and exercise to handle the stresses happening at this time. It is a great instigator for starting some healthy patterns for your personal well-being and spiritual growth. The external is not less important and the internal stability is going to be necessary to move forward.
“You can seek to rationalize in order to understand or you can just accept. You can collapse into the darker energies of your being and allow all the inner work you have cultivated to go out the window or your can take an honest look at where the external is mirroring an internal reality that you have suppressed. When you are in a place of challenge it is tempting to fall back into old habits of hatred and projection. Do your best to find the sweet things that still make life beautiful. Be honest with yourself. Deal with what you feel from a place of observation and compassion. Know that things are never completely what they seem in the moment and that life is going to teach everyone the lessons that are necessary for a greater awakening.”
The conscious spiritual community has its work cut out for itself right now. Not only is that community more sensitive to the negativity that is infecting the world but we are also the “go to” for others when they are stressed out. That makes it doubly difficult. How do you shield from the intense vitriol that is exploding out there in the world, stay centered, stay mindful of this moment only, keep an open heart to everyone and figure out where you are supposed to fit in this new reality? It is a stretch for all of us. This is where inner practice is essential to finding your own clarity. You cannot be clear for others when you are being thrown off because of energetic global disturbances, personal overwhelm, and dealing with your own disappointment or negativity being directed right at you. This is a time where meditating by the fire, exercise, walking in nature, yoga, and massages are very important to get through the stress that the body has built up. You can do this. You really have no choice. You have to deal with the hand life has dealt you regardless of if it is what you want or what you dreamed was possible.
