Numerology/Astrology for 1/1/16
January 1st is the number 11. Oh, my goodness! We have leaped from a 6 to an 11 in one shot. Welcome to the New Year. This year is going to be filled with the places of completion and the expansion of your intuition in ways that give you depth rather than width. With Neptune continuing to deepen all of us and pushing us further and further into our right brain rather than our left-brain, we are being asked to look at the places where we have been horribly out of balance in our life. That balance is asking to be reconstructed so that you can live a more full and happy life. Today, being the first of the month is (all together) a number 11, which is about transcending the old and embracing the new. It is all about looking at what the new way is asking of you at this moment. You have to let go of the negativity of the past year and embrace the potential future fully. Change is necessary and part of life’s journey. Change is positive though at the moment when you have to change it is often fraught with anger, resentment, and fear that the old way is somehow better than the new way. In truth, change evolves and improves as it is tested. So things get smoother as they move along. Think of all the shifts you had to do just in the world of cell phones to smart phones. Think of all the glitches, problems, and frustrations that had to be worked through. Never expect perfection as the change happens. Remember that in creation there are always modifications that make things smoother and better. You often do not know where there is a problem until you implement the new thing. This is a year of learning new things, letting go of old ways, and discovering the joy is working through the kinks in the constantly evolving world that is what life has always been about. The Moon leaves Virgo early into the day, at 1:42 AM EST, and enters Libra. So many are desperate to balance out life in a new and significant way. Today is a gracious, friendly energy. Mercury enters Aquarius, where it will transit until January 8th. Mercury will only work its way through the first degree of the sign before it turns retrograde and then will retreat back into Capricorn, returning to Aquarius on February 13th for a more “proper” visit. When Mercury is in Aquarius, you will be hungry for knowledge and open to new and original ideas. You are finally beginning to think outside of the box, and your thinking becomes more progressive and objective. Your communication and thought patterns are spontaneous though somewhat fragmented and liberal. This is a time when inventive thinking is at a peak. So take advantage of this moment and use what is being offered while it is there. Jump on the wave and right it for this short burst of awareness. If you kept catching those short bursts of energy you can still progress very far. Sometimes waiting for the big wave is way to much to handle when it shows up and then fear makes you hesitate and miss the doorway. This year, I want to show the small short bursts of energy so that when the big waves hit you are not caught in the place where you face plant into the coral reef but are a bit ahead of the wave and so you don’t get caught in the slamming energy but you will have done the work to be just a bit in front so you are scooted along for a more peaceful and playful ride.
Your pain is where you are holding on to something that is not yours or is no longer valid for who you are becoming. Water that energy with your love and generosity. Allow your mind to figure out what it is that you need for information, knowledge, and skill to allow yourself to release the past and embrace the future. Learn to love and embrace your weirdness. Let the life-force within you transform your history into embodied wisdom.
Hold on tight! We have made it to 2016 finally! And as much as all of us want to breath a sigh of relief I am afraid that the break everyone is looking for is still quite a ways off. Check out my 2016 Overview and Transits to get more detail of all of that. But here we are just to be in that place of new energy is good enough. I hope all of you had a wonderful New Years Eve and celebrated in proper fashion with those you love.
