1+2 (3) +1+2 (3)+2+0+1+9 (3) = 3+3+3=9
3 and 9
The number three reminds us that there is a third party other than two in union – this third party is the Witness – or perhaps the Creator – or even that which is created by that Two. You me and the Other. Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – the Trilogy. Mother Father and Child. Creations. Gathering, talking together.
The number nine is noted for its magic in that it disappears when it is added to all other numbers – in fact you can bypass it totally when adding numbers for numerology. It brings Magic and the Mystery of the Bigger Picture. It brings completion, because the next number begins with a new sequence of tens. …9 - 10; …29 – 30 and so on.
These observations are some that I have noted – without the guidance of Google necessarily – or by teachers of the art of Numerology. However, these scholars have far more information based on the observations of the Wise Ones that has been handed down respectfully. I encourage you to look at this for yourself.
I have studied astrology for a number of years, however am far from an expert at it. It was only when I began to shamanise (a great term that Adam Rock and Stanley Krippner introduced me to in their book Demystifying Shamans and Their World) astrology that I came to fall in love with it and began to understand it from the inside out. I looked to the spirit of each planet, and took my time getting close to them. Talking to them, asking for their guidance and for them to be gentle with my contract in this life, which involves a great deal of ancestral business-finishing!
It is only recently that I am starting to be able to take in and curiously turn to the teachings my dear teachers endeavoured to pass on many years ago. I am ready to spread my wings further and find out more. In my own way. In my own time.
Let’s take a closer look at how the sky looks at the moment:
The Full Moon is in Gemini on 12.12.19.
12 is a powerful number on its own – and yet I haven’t given it much attention here. The number 3 and 9 are my focus for now.
The 3rdHouse in the 12 houses of astrology is related to the sign Gemini, which is guided by Mercury with the element of Air and Wind holding and guiding energies; This sign is also related to goddess Athena, goddess of wisdom and war. What it has in common with the planet Mercury and Gemini is its capacity for communication – and if we look at the duality, twin, aspect of Gemini – we can assume at this time we may be in Two Minds about what is happening around us at present. The goddess Athena (my research tells me) offers wisdom and is ready to wage war if necessary as she is goddess of courage and brings great skills and creativity when battles need to be won, championing truth and integrity. If we ask ourselves, what are we ready to go into battle for in our lives at this time – as individuals and as a collective, this moon will guide the wisdom that comes.
9thHouse (relates to Sagittarius, the Archer, which is guided by Jupiter (and god Zeus with his Arrow), and the element Fire is prominent. This combination assists us to meet our goals – fulfilling and completing our mission at this time, and ready to prepare for a new beginning. It is big energy – amplifying all that is light, and all that is in darkness. The fires of Zeus fuel illuminate what is at hand needing our attention and energy.
Presently we have a Full Moon (our Grandmother Wisdom) gathering under the influence of Gemini (symbol is twins), and the Goddess Athena, at the time of the Sun sign in Sagittarius.
I am not a numerologist or an astrologer – however I am a Great Observer and Seeker of Knowledge, and I like to know where the planets are in the sky, and what numbers I am surrounded by, particularly at times like these.
To be honest with you (Zeus and Athena are demanding honesty at this time) I have no idea how the numbers 3 and 9, from a numerological perspective, come to merge with the numbers 3 and 9 (as in the third and ninth houses in astrology at this time – but, the Observer tells me it is no co-incidence. My intuition tells me this Full Moon over these fires will change something. My prayer is:
“May the Grandmothers watch over us in their fullness of love and light and shine the way for peace, and calm the elements of Wind and Fire, and bring peace to and Union with the Earth, washed by the blessings of beloved Spirit of Water. Let it be so, and so it is – show us the way, with trust and courage and in love, through this time of Awakening, thankyou”.
In further reflection – it seems there is no escaping that the planets are assisting us to burn of the dross of disharmony and dishonesty; and anything that is out of balance will be brought back into balance. Our communication needs to be honest and impeccable – law officers are being brought to justice if they have not been in integrity – abusers at high levels in society are being brought into account - leaders in any field are being asked to listen to the people they serve. Our inner communication also needs to be impeccable – we have to stop putting ourselves down and seeing life through fear and doubt. This is not the Truth – this is the illusion.
Our potential as a collective race is unfathomable. Our collective heart, spirit and mind offers infinite possibilities. And we have to be courageous and go to war for what we know is True, honest, in integrity and balanced, and for what we know is possible.
The way of the planets and their spirits (Astrology) and the magic of numbers (Numerology) were and are traditionally known to those who walked the shamanic way. These Shamanic Way Walkers were and are great observers. The World Above was and is as alive and considered equally as the Worlds Within and Without by them, by us. Equally the World Below was and is known well.
Lately, in Sydney, with all the smoke, it has been difficult to see the sky and what is happening there. We are fortunate that we can turn to our astrologists and numerologists to find out above the clouds. There is plenty of information on line to help us.
For me, it is not only about what you find – it is about what happens when you put it all together with what you innately know to be true, and align it with your personal and the collective experience.
This morning I was awakened early by the strong smell of smoke. It is so thick, I am concerned if anyone who is driving can see far on the roads. It hasn’t been this thick since the fires began.
My concern goes beyond the smoke however, and curiousity kicks in. “What makes smoke?”, my Inner Voice asks me. Fire (Sag Sun Sign) and Air(Gemini full moon)) – these two elements merging and causing so much havoc for months now. Going further I think, this is not just fire – it is Bushfire Spirit – rage and destruction - it is War. When I think of Air element – this is not a gentle breeze behind this smoke – this has been Brother Wind relentlessly trying to tell us something – day after day – week after week – screaming out loud something to us as Collective.
It is time to listen – to talk and communicate about this – to look in – to find the light – to find the truth –find and create a balance (Gemini Spirit) – reach our for beloved Earth and Water Spirits to help and guide us at this time – go to the water – lower ourselves down and cry with tears of gratitude into Mother Ocean and ask for our Soul’s Wisdom to be activated. Lie on the earth and wet her with our tears of love for her and our promise of courage to take care of her in any way we know how. It is time to bring light, love, compassion and joy at every opportunity – to celebrate – to hold ceremony and give thanks, to dance and sing and play our drums and rattles and gongs and clapsticks and bowls. To hug and talk and listen to trees and animals and stones and crystals.
I am hoping with this full moon rising they will come to the end of the battle in the Sky, and settle all energies gently into the Earth, making room in the sky for our beloved Water element. My hope becomes a prayer:
“Beloved Spirits of Water and Earth, we call you in to offer your blessings to this parched land. May the heart and soul of humanity be awakened enough and the Higher Realm business be done, if that is for the highest good of all. If not, may we be blessed with patience and loving kindness for each other and find peace and acceptance as we awaken together at this significant time – the time the Ancient Ones call the Sixth Sun. Let it be so, and so it is, show us the way, thankyou”.
