Day Twenty-Six: Your Number’s Up

Waning Moon Void of Course

Sun in Leo

The Moon has been void today and will transit into the astrological sign of Cancer tomorrow morning at 12:30am.  It is also a Friday so everyone is winding up for the weekend.  The day’s energies seemed like the quiet before the next great emotional outpouring would begin. Everything is gearing up for the floodgates to open through the next two days leading up to the new moon.  A lot has been brought forward with the waning of the moon’s energy and now what is occurring under the surface is preparing to begin the cycle anew with this next new moon cycle.  It makes me think of the slow boil of the water in a pan, that begins to accelerate more rapidly as more heat is applied.  Moon will be in Cancer as the last sign before it begins anew and flows into the heated waters of Leo Moon and Leo Sun.

As promised, here is the information about numbers and the application of numerology.

Some Basics of Numerology:

The Poem below is one I routinely use in my workshops.  The application of numerology lends itself to multiple systems and I always have this as an adjunct tool to point out something more than what is on the surface of understanding. This poem was written several years ago and each time I pull it out for use and reread it there is something new to be revealed. In fact one of its uses was to describe the energy of the Qabalistic Sphere of Kether which serve as the Godhead or Source from which the remaining nine spheres receive the outpouring of its creation.

~ The Continuum ~

Nothing and everything
the endless void fills all time
until…

One moves in the silence
stretching and reaching
towards the other as Two
swiftly take flight.

They mingle and join
each claiming their own side
so Three may point the way.
Each base stretched far and wide.

Foundations are laid
by another close at hand
who opens the Four sealed Gates.

Disruption and creative force
issues forth as the skillfully crafted
shield of focus reflects the Five.

The light is fixed
the seeker is found
as outpour of healing grace
gives way to the
harmonious Six.

Each walks a path of experience
pulling and gathering from
vista’s extremes.
Wisdom and lessons hard won
fill what moves within.

As six expands to become Seven
the meandering web that
connects becomes entwined.

A continuum of dual
portal opening and Eight
the final climax of force contained.

Like amoebas they move and
wiggle and stretch and pull
and strain until the
tension and release
catapult them over
the initiatory threshold of
Death’s Nine Gates.

All scatter and disperse
once again seamlessly
part of the void of the All
until…

Once again the singular One rises
reaching out towards its
newly quickened mate.

This gives you an idea of how the energy of one number flows into the next having been informed by the previous. Numerology is the study of numbers, and the occult manner in which they reflect certain aptitudes and character tendencies, as an integral part of the cosmic plan. Each letter has a numeric value that provides a related cosmic vibration. For example, the sum of the numbers in your birth date and the sum of value derived from the letters in the name provide an interrelation of vibrations. It is thought that these numbers show a great deal about an individual’s character, purpose in life, what motivates, and where talents may lie. Experts use the numbers to determine the best time for major moves and activities in life.

Pythagoras, the Greek mathematician who live from 569-470 B.C., is said by many to be the originator of much of what we call numerology today. Although, if we look back at the emphasis placed on the numbers related to the Qabalah, the use of numerology in some form dates back to being a very ancient art of interpretation.

Most every counting system in the world is based upon the numbers 1 through 9. Each of those digits has its own particular meaning. Numerology is the method of reducing names and dates to special numbers that reveal character, quality and cycles of the person or thing being examined.  I use numerology to define many of my magickal workings as you can see with the references I have made to the numeric value of a particular day’s date.

This is a very basic listing of the general attributes if each of the numbers from 1-9

0 – Cycles, void, the limitless ALL, womb of creation and the Gate of the Divine

1 – The singular “I”, the individual, the line of continuum, energy held and gathered back to itself

2 – Collaborative effort- moving beyond the “I” to “we”- duality and polarity that results

3 – The point of trinity or third that is created from the friction and combined effort of the two

4 – Opening the point of support to a place of foundation, equanimity and force in a balanced state

5 – The shield whose tip may be directed by Will to disrupt, change and set in motion

6 – Doubled trinity, intersecting energies of descent and ascent, mirrored image of creative product

7 – Carrying forward the lessons learned, the paths taken and the reconvening of the triune

8 – The lemniscate, foundation (4) uplifted to become the container, receipt and release

9 – Threshold /gate to endings and completion with potential for new fully in-formed beginnings
