Today is the thirteenth day of the twelfth month. The number thirteen indicates new beginnings, opportunities, and manifestations. It also carries energies of expansion, growth, communications, and joy. The one and three together bring energies of four, a number of stability, success, integrity, solid foundations, trust, and wisdom. Today, on the eve of the full solar eclipse, we can expect transitions and major changes that are for our highest good. These changes may clear karma and usher in sweeping transformations that are needed in our lives. These shifts may bring us exactly what we have been asking for, although perhaps not quite in the way we expected it. When we remember that the universe doesn’t make mistakes, when we trust divine timing, and when we stand solid in the knowing that everything is always working out for our highest good, regardless of how it may look on the outside, we can rest securely in trust, faith, and comfort, and in the knowing that all will be well. We may be on the cusp of major life changes now that will improve things for us in significant ways. We have reached a tipping point, as the old is ushered out to make way for the new and improved. 

Adding up all of the numbers in today’s date brings us eleven, and two. Eleven carries a gateway energy that we are now passing through, which aligns with the transformational 12/12 to 12/21 portal we are now in. We are moving forward rapidly and powerful changes are taking place behind the scenes, building the energies for manifestations in the spiritual and physical. Two is a number of partnership, and indicates our co-creative union with our higher selves, and with our allies in the nonphysical. Especially now, it is of the utmost importance that we monitor our thoughts and stay in a high vibrational space. We serve ourselves, and others, best when we stay focused on the positive, and when we open up to the innate joy that lies within each one of us. When we sit with the intention of finding the good-feeling place within our hearts, we gain awareness through how easy it is, or not, for us to find those good feelings; this is a solid indicator of how much we still have to heal. If our hearts are blocked with pain or energies from the past, or anything we are holding onto that is not of the light, it is a gift to have the awareness that those energies are there so we can shift and clear them out and open up to joy. This is a healing process that is similar to clearing the underbrush from a path; this process allows us to reach our destination, and to see the way ahead with clarity. At the end of that path is joy, and this is the joy within. 

This is one of the greatest ways we can honor ourselves, to heal and clear what does not serve us so we can easily reach a place of alignment with our true selves, our inner being, which is pure joy and unconditional love. The easier it is for us to reach that state, the more power we have over our own lives, state of awareness, and vibration. The more we are in alignment with our highest path and purpose, the more we can receive the wisdom of infinite intelligence, tap into pure source energy, and align with the universal forces that are conspiring for our highest good. And, the more we clear and heal, the more we open up our clairgifts. The benefits of this are multidimensional. Not only does this opening allow us to attune more to divine wisdom, but it also allows us to be more discerning of people and situations, to have greater clarity in every aspect of our own lives, and to be more powerful creators and managers of our own energetic and vibrational state. This attunement empowers us to be the magnificent creators we came here to be. We can begin this healing and clearing process simply by intending it. Sitting with the intention of healing from the heart in a quiet or meditative space for a little while each day will have powerful positive effects that are compounded over time.

Mantra: I see with clarity where it will benefit me to heal and grow. I welcome healing in my heart and positive, powerful transformations that are in alignment with my highest good.

Today is the tenth day of the twelfth month. Ten symbolizes the end of a cycle and the subsequent beginning of a new one. We are poised at a significant place as we are reaching the end of a cycle that begins transitioning into the new in just a few days, with the 12/12 energetic portal. The eclipse that follows just a few days after that, on 12/14, brings a reset, and the 12/21 solstice flips the switch and signifies the beginning point of the momentum that begins building on that day, as we begin sailing into an increase in light. Now we are being asked to face wounds and traumas and do the work needed to clear and transmute them so we can begin, or continue, to heal. We are preparing now and continuing our preparations for the better that is to come. This work is key, as it makes room for improvements to enter our lives. We first have to clear away the underbrush before we can begin building the new, stronger foundation. 

Adding up all of the numbers in today’s date yields eight. This number calls us back to our eternal nature and asks us to tap into our divinity, where we can draw from a sense of powerful worthiness, limitless strength, and a magnificent connection to the infinite intelligence of the universe. We can reach, through this place, a divine knowing. We are strongly encouraged to go within to reach this place, to connect with who we truly are: this is the Source within. The answers we seek are within us, and no one can guide us like we can guide ourselves. Finding this place can be a journey, but it is one that changes everything, and it is a journey well worth taking. Simply spending twenty minutes breathing and clearing your mind makes space for any messages to come to you. The messages that come from a divine place are different from the mental chatter; you will be able to better distinguish these over time and with practice. It is also important to be aware that we are clearing energetic dross, which may rise to the surface and make itself known so it can be cleared, released, and transmuted. We are guided to let go with love and compassion.

This very important work yields magnificent gifts. Through this daily practice, we become more attuned, can do deep inner healing, receive energetic upgrades, strengthen our energy and our connection to the divine, and open our clairgifts. When we strengthen our energy, we are also forging stronger protections around us. This also helps us to receive messages that are meant for us with greater clarity and accuracy, and to be guided down the path that is truly meant for us—the one that we are meant for—in this lifetime. 

Mantra: I am connected to my inner Source and strengthen my knowing of the divinity within. My path and purpose are clear, and I always perceive with clarity.

Today is the fifth day of the twelfth month. Five can be a pivot point, and brings energies that help to manifest change, expansion, and new developments. It can also bring clarity that lets us know where change is needed. In every challenge, there is an opportunity. Whether challenges serve to alert us to issues, to bring us greater awareness of our own vibration or clarity on our state of being, to help us to know the importance of protecting our energy, to guide us back to our path, or to steer us away from certain people or situations, challenges can be valuable to us on many levels and often serve as guideposts to help us along the way.

Adding up all of the numbers in today’s date yields twelve, and three. Twelve is synchronous with this twelfth month of the year and serves to bring our awareness to the concluding cycle we are currently in. If we have been on the healing path, we are guided to continue clearing away the energetic debris and strengthen our aura and energy field through daily meditations; if we have not yet begun intentional healing, we are guided to begin the process now in preparation for the new cycle that is becoming. Meditation can help us to heal, and brings in more light to take the place of what we have cleared. As we are beings of light at our source, at the core of who we are, this is a return to the light and a remembrance of who we are through an anchoring of the light. When we heal, we make room for what does serve us, and as we invite in more light, visualizing it surrounding us and filling our field, then entering through our crown in a column of light, we not only strengthen and stabilize our energy, but this assists us in the healing process and helps to strengthen the light within us and anchor it into our being. Through this process, we gain a remembrance of who we truly are and strengthen our gifts and abilities gradually with every meditation and visualization, increasing the light we are able to hold and building the momentum. This is a way of pivoting our energy as we shift more into the light and with this, transition into the new that is becoming—the new cycle, a new era, and a new and better state of being.

Three carries energies of community, celebration, and manifestation. Spending time with those we care about and reaching out to friends and family, even through a phone call or text message, can be rewarding. We are guided to reach out with love to those in our lives. We can send them light through our intention. After strengthening our own energy through meditation, we are better prepared to send them a stronger and cleaner energy. We can picture them surrounded by light and ask that they receive healing according to their highest good and to the highest and greatest extent to which they are willing to receive these energies. This technique is also useful in healing relationships and clearing unwanted energies, streamers, and cords that are not for your highest good. As we near the end of a major cycle, we are supported in clearing karma, and are encouraged to do so. We can do this through setting intentions, prayer, visualization, meditation, or a combination of any of these. We can ask for guidance from our nonphysical allies as to whether there is any karma to be cleared, information around it such as who and what situations it is connected to, and how best to go about clearing and/or resolving it. This can be an important step in our healing and will allow us to move on from situations, whether physically or energetically, that do not serve us so we can elevate and move into what is better for us, and to continue moving forward into our highest path and purpose with greater freedom, strength, and clarity.

Mantra: I welcome the positive change that is ready to flow to me. I clear, release, and transmute all energies that do not serve me and welcome more light into my field. I strengthen in wisdom, awareness, and understanding with every breath I take.

Healing and Eclipses: Finding the Light Within

Image by Victoria Constantino

This has been a busy year for planet Earth, and the solar system has been just as active. The planetary activity will have brought us a total of six eclipses—two solar and four lunar—by the close of 2020. The November 30 eclipse is a partial lunar eclipse, and the final eclipse of the year—a total solar eclipse—occurs on December 14. This year being heavier on the lunar side gives weight to our internal landscape. If you are not already on the healing journey, the universe could have plans for you.

The moon is associated with the feminine, the subconscious mind, and with our inner world. When the moon becomes full on November 30, it will be partially obscured by the shadow of the Earth. The moon’s magnetic pull informs the tides, and as our bodies contain so much water, we are affected as well. November’s full moon is in Gemini, whose symbol is the twins. This aspect of duality shines a light on partnership, and is echoed in the aspects of darkness and light. This lunar eclipse is focused on the connection between the human self and the higher self, or the physical self and the spirit. Because it is a partial or penumbral eclipse, the energies are somewhat lessened.

When we start to tune into our often complex interior world, we have the opportunity to gain infinite clarity and increased self-awareness. We are also afforded a chance to heal and release emotional weight and any baggage we have been carrying. We can set down unnecessary burdens and clear energies that do not serve us simply by setting the intention of doing so. The Gemini influence may ask us to consider our relationship with ourselves and with our spirituality. We may find ourselves objectively examining aspects of our lives and our ways of living, thinking, and being that we have not consciously considered before or that we have not explored in a long time. We may begin questioning our choices and habits of thought as we see better ways of thinking and being that not only serve our highest good, but that can advance us further along on our path.

We are guided to look within and think of ways we can improve on all levels. We always benefit by being aware of our thoughts and thinking positively. Because we create our own reality, every thought matters. We can always guide our thoughts toward something better, stepping up or improving every thought with a better and more positive one, much like we would climb a staircase one step at a time. This is a way of healing; it is healing through self-awareness. We are being asked at this time to shine a light on our mental landscape and see where we can shift from the negative to the positive. Where are we doing ourselves a disservice with negative thinking? How can we adopt a growth mindset? How can we see ourselves as our Source sees us? When we seek to perceive with crystal clarity and to gain in wisdom, the universe will surely answer.

Lunar eclipses create energetic resets. Symbolically and energetically, when the full moon passes through shadow and then through the other side to reveal its luminescence once again, it is like turning off a switch and then turning it back on again. Full moons are times of growth, healing, and powerful cleansing, and the eclipse amplifies those energies. Eclipses have a way of creating powerful shifts and breakthroughs in our lives. If we have been resisting change that needs to happen for our growth and improvement, the eclipse can act as a catalyst that will shake things up and create the change you have been resisting or that is for your betterment.

Solar eclipses occur on the new moon, and the December 14 eclipse will be in heady Sagittarius. During a solar eclipse, the sun is completely obscured. This period of darkness asks us to look within and encourages self-examination. We are asked to explore what isn’t working, how we want to move forward, and our goals and plans for the year ahead. This may be a time to consider where you want to be by the end of 2020, and what you want to accomplish by the end of 2021. Sagittarius brings influences of the intellect, and you may find it beneficial to consider paths to professional development, career advancement, and spiritual development. The solar eclipse may bring profound insights and understanding that can help you to advance by leaps and bounds and reach new levels of understanding.

Wherever you stood at the beginning of the year, and wherever you may be now, one thing is certain—by the end of 2020, you stand a very good chance of being a much different and more improved version of yourself. We are always on the way to somewhere, and the journey is eternal. We only have now; we only have each moment. Where we stand in every moment is a potential springboard to somewhere else. The question is, how high do you want to jump? How free do you want to be? How far will you let yourself soar?

Today is the eighteenth day of the eleventh month. Eighteen brings forth the manifestation of opportunities and abundance, as well as new beginnings that increase prosperity and strengthen financial foundations. Today also carries an aspect of release, as the one and eight add up to nine, a number that reminds us of the importance of letting go of what does not serve. It’s time to let go of the old so we can make room for something better. Improved conditions on all levels are possible for us. We are guided to feel into ways we can enrich our experience and are asked to be aware of any blocks or resistance and clear those so we can open up to receive. 

The numbers in today’s date add up to six, a number of integrity, justice, honesty, truth, stability, grace, harmony, and balance. Six can also indicate growth in these areas. Today carries an element of taking time to appreciate beauty, and making improvements to our environment. When we clear clutter, we improve the energy flow around us, which impacts our own energy and our ability to think, focus, and perceive with clarity. A clean environment also improves our mood and has an immediate impact on our ability to perceive and function optimally. Once we create optimal surroundings, we can more easily experience enjoyment and feelings of levity and freedom, which are some key ways we can get into the receiving mode and allow in everything we have asked for. Moments of joy and lightheartedness shift the energy powerfully in ways that allow what we desire to flow to us quickly. 

Just as we would clear clutter from our physical environment, we are also asked to clear energetic and mental clutter. First creating a clean, harmonious, and organized  physical environment strongly supports us in our ability to clear energetically. Today’s guidance is to tune into the heart and the mind, and to seek out anything that is disharmonious or creating static or heaviness. Releasing mental chatter may be important for many of you. Breathing deeply for several minutes every day with the intention of releasing any energies for transmutation (healing) is a powerful way of clearing, healing, and regaining your center. Exploring the natural world, even for a few moments every day, can shift your energy in positive ways. Grounding by releasing energy that does not serve you down into the core of the earth for transmutation is an important daily practice that strengthens your energy more over time.

Mantra: I release and clear what does not serve me and allow what is for my highest good to flow to me with ease. I receive with love and gratitude.

Today is the tenth day of the eleventh month. Ten is a number of endings, conclusions, closure, and finality. We may be reaching the end of a cycle and saying our last goodbyes to whatever we are walking away from as we head into a brand new day—almost as if we are walking along a beach toward a beautiful sunrise, not looking back at the darkness we leave behind. We know that it is gone and will never return, and neither will we. All that lies before us now is the glittering shore. And although we will certainly encounter new experiences along the way, which encompass the spectrum of life experience, both positive and negative, we are seeing that our positive expectations are more consistently manifesting desired outcomes.

The numbers in today’s date add up to seven, which carries energies of good fortune, divine partnership, manifesting, and expansion. We may be entering a period of growing awareness of our spiritual abilities and increasing them multifold. This number also carries aspects of healing and independence. We are guided to spend time in quiet contemplation. This time to ourselves is important to allow us to sort through, process, and clear past experiences. This brings improved energetic purification and is an important part of the healing process. The more we process, clear, and heal, the more clarity we gain in our minds and hearts and the more we expand into our spiritual gifts and abilities. We are essentially making room for them as we create balance within. From this place of balance, we can manifest more quickly and perceive with greater clarity. This also allows us to connect more strongly to our own hearts and minds, and to our intuition. This is a way of laying the foundation for the days to come. Growth and healing is a process, and we gradually gain increased clarity along the way. It is important to be patient with ourselves and to remember that we are eternal beings here at a certain point or stop along the way, which is this now moment. We only and always and ever have now.

Mantra: I allow myself to heal in all of the ways that serve my highest good. I welcome greater clarity and balance as I expand my abilities and continue rising up into my highest path and purpose.

Today is the seventh day of the eleventh month. Seven is a number of good fortune, spirituality, intuition, knowledge, logic, and understanding. Tuning into our intuition with the intention of perceiving what is right and true and good for us is highlighted. We may reach new awareness with a keen and focused mind, heightened perception, and newfound wisdom. From there, we are asked to consider what changes it would be beneficial for us to make. Now presents an opportunity for us to realign ourselves with our highest path and purpose and to see the way forward with increasing clarity.

The numbers in today’s date add up to four, a number of stability and balance. Family is in focus today, as is the strength we gather from our loving, supportive connections. We are asked to lean into these strong relationships, as they are helping us to strengthen energetically and to rise up into our higher purpose from a solid foundation and a place of security. Finding joy in the little things may be an important aspect of today, and we may find gems where we least expect them to be. These can come in the form of important knowledge or wisdom gained that helps us along on our journey or provides a certain key for us that unlocks new understanding, wisdom, new senses or abilities, and paves the way forward as we broaden our perspective and reach toward new goals, ideas, and ideals. Trusting yourself and your instincts today may be of crucial importance. You may find yourself on an unexpected excursion. Allowing yourself the enjoyment of letting go of the must-do, if just for a little while, and simply being in the moment will flow in the stability that only peace and happiness can bring and will further your energetic alignment.

Mantra: I welcome joy, clarity, and new ideas, and move forward from a place of energetic alignment.

Today is the second day of the eleventh month; two is a number of partnerships and balance. We are guided to reach new understandings with others and to communicate from a place of harmony and compassion. Unity is in focus now, and we are reminded that we are all one, each of us here having our own individual experiences, and each of us with our own mission and purpose. We are guided to ask ourselves how we can bring more balance to our relationships, and how we can communicate in a way that respects the opinions of others while honoring our own beliefs. Examining the answers to these questions may provide illumination and clarity. 

The numbers in today’s date add up to eight, a number of prosperity, abundance, material comfort, security, and manifestation. We are asked to get rid of anything that may be blocking the flow of abundance. Tuning in to our intuition and to our own energy, and monitoring how we are feeling can tell us a lot about where we are energetically. What shifts can we make to improve the way we are feeling? This can mean making adjustments to the physical environment, such as clearing clutter, bringing in fragrance, and lighting candles, or it can  entail making adjustments to your thinking and adopting a growth mindset, rewriting your beliefs and instilling positive thinking. We are asked to meditate and to prioritize our energetic health, clearing any unnecessary thinking, beliefs, and energies. We can call on our allies to assist us with this. When our energy is clear and stable and the environment around us is harmonious, this helps to welcome in abundant energies and improves the energetic flow for us overall.

We are encouraged to pursue studies and reading that support our spiritual development and growth. Also in focus are intellectual pursuits; you may be guided to expand your skill set by embarking on a new course of study in order to accelerate your career growth or move into a new field that will bring you improved satisfaction and circumstances. Trust yourself and your inner guidance. If you are considering making a major shift, know that you are supported in your transformation and growth at all times, and especially now. This is a powerful time to make significant life changes that will bring improvements. 

New relationships are highlighted as well. You may be meeting someone new that will be significant to you or may only be present in your life for a time so that you can learn from one another or resolve past life karma. Letting them go with love and kindness when it is time to do so is important in order to release the energy between you; you will know instinctively if it is time to do this. On the other hand, someone may be entering your life now that will be significant to you for many years to come. Sending love to wounded family relationships and those who have caused you hurt in the past is a great act of kindness—both to yourself and to them—and will bring exponential rewards and improvements for all involved. Sending kindness and healing to those who have treated you unkindly is one of the most courageous, selfless acts. Not only will this help to heal them and the energies between you, it will also help you to heal and release the past so that you can move forward, freer and lighter than ever before.

Mantra: I welcome brighter days ahead and allow improved circumstances to flow into my life. I send love, healing, compassion, and kindness to all who are or ever have been connected to me. I release the past with love and forgiveness.
