Higher Octave

ok.  So here’s the deal.
Nobody gets outta here alive, folks.
We’ve been dying since the day we were born.
I’m not gonna bring the gloom and doom.
Instead, here’s some love and light.

After all, Mercury rules numbers and is presently conjunct Venus which rules love.
Both planets are at 11 degrees or 2 – balance, relationship between two forces.

11:11 on 11.11.11  ?

What does it mean to you ?  It will happen twice on this day so does
11:11 AM mean illumination, happiness ?
11:11 PM darkness, despair ?

It’s up to you !

It’s a matter of polarities.
Yin/yang, positive/negative, attract/ repel.
It is a matter of polar opposites finding their balance.

It is an awareness of the choice between the two  that counts.

Do you see the rose or the thorn ?
Do you light a candle or curse the darkness ?

I mean c’mon admit it, we all have our bad days.
The attitude / altitude we carry within is what makes the difference.

There is no way to happiness, happiness is the way. 

There is no black or white in humans.
We are all shades of grey, a fusion of the planetary energies put in place when we were born.
No one is all good or all bad.
We are all creators and destroyers.
We are each and every one a unique gumbo – a perfectly blended human.
We are perfection in chaos.

Here’s the info on the numbers and the vibes:

11.  11 is the beginning of a higher series of numbers and represents a transcendental realm of knowledge.  11 is energy, intuition and perception.  It represents power, strength, and the ability to control baser instincts.
It is the higher octave of 2. (2 is balance, duality, choice)

11.11.11 = 6  
6 is harmony within flux, creativity, six is a perfect number- meaning it is both a sum and a product of the first 3 numbers.

11.11.2011 = 8
8 is strength, regeneration, power operating, eternity.  The I Ching uses 64 8 x 8 yarrow configurations.

11:11 on 11.11.11 = 10/ or 1
10 is the Pythagorean symbol of completeness.  Humans have 10 fingers, toes, decimal system, the power of ten.
1 is the root of raw power operating, the creative seed, the leaders.  One multiplied by itself always remains one.

11:11 on 11.11.2011 = 12/ or 3
12 is universal fulfillment, the 12 zodiacal signs, 12 day time hours, 12 night-time hours.
3 is mystical and spiritual, the first flowering expansion from 2.  It signifies increase and exploration.

11+11+11 = 33
33 is a higher octave of 6 (see above) and is the number of illumination, the master teacher and healer.  It is the flower of life, creation.

I have read over and over that 11:11 is a gateway, a digital code, a door to enlightenment and awakening.
Sure, maybe it is.  Maybe happy hour on Friday is too.

Why not make every moment a doorway to a new and better world ?
Why wait ?

And please don’t let fear of death ruin your life.

Bene Gesserit Litany against fear: Dune

I must not fear.
Fear is the mind-killer.

Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

Yoda:   “A Jedi’s strength flows from the Force. But beware of the dark side. Anger…fear…aggression. The dark side of the Force are they. Easily they flow, quick to join you in a fight. If once you start down the dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny, consume you it will, as it did Obi-Wan’s apprentice.”
Luke: “Vader. Is the dark side stronger?”
“No…no…no. Quicker, easier, more seductive.”
Luke: “But how am I to know the good side from the bad?” 
Yoda: “You will know. When you are calm, at peace. Passive. A Jedi uses the Force for knowledge and defense, never for attack.”

zig zag moon

I went all Virgo persnickety on my yard today – mowed, and yanked a ton of weeds so this dark Virgo moon I can rest easy knowing my inside and outside chores are done.  A happy Virgo is a Virgo with work completed (Virgo is the sign of work and service).
The cool thing is what stopped me dead in my tracks ! 
I brake ( break ! ) for critters.

I just had to get a pic of this most beautiful, groovy (Saturn-ruled) spider and her web.

How appropriate my new spider friend is a Nephila, or ‘fond of spinning’, as I have been having a weird spun-out, emotional weekend.   Transiting Jupiter is nearly conjunct my natal 4th house Moon/Neptune opposition my emotional geiger counter is c-c-clicking !
I need a distraction, so here are some pics (Neptune) from my home (4th house) !

Golden silk orb-weavers  are sometimes referred to as writing spiders due to occasional zigzag patterns called stabilimenta  (web decorations) built into their webs.  There are many theories as to why the spiders spin such patterns, such as they make shiny UV attractors, excess silk, but the coolest theory is because they like the patterns, it is their spider artHow cool is that ?!

I’m going with aesthetics, because I once saw a large web with a teeny-weenie miniature web (just like the big one) in the far upper right corner of the web.  I often wondered if it was a practice web, wall art or maybe a guest bed…who knows..?!  I keep an eye out just in case I see another someday.

If my theory is true, it would mean spiders are not only Saturn-ruled, but also Venus (art) ruled.  This particular spider often kills her mate, so better toss in some Mars and Pluto as well.
What do you think….?

I looked up spider totem, and it is spot-on because I wasn’t even going to post this evening….and just as I waited for the page to load, I glanced at the clock- 11:11 !   (manifestation time)
So groOovy…let’s all see the web of life during the dark Virgo Moon !

Spider helps understanding of illusions and reality, spiritual and physical balance, awakens sensibilities and weaves influences in development in your own world, stay focused on the center of things.  Spider is gentleness and strength and will remind you of this pattern. She also will aid in communications and the written word.
