Today is the fourteenth day of the twelfth month. The number fourteen brings change and opportunities that help us to establish stronger foundations and create greater stability in our lives. Ones are related to focus, manifestations, new beginnings, and fresh starts. We are beginning to see our goals gather momentum and start building toward meaningful results. Through our continued dedication, patience, applied effort (both energetic and physical), and focus, we can create meaningful, lasting results. Today’s eclipse contributes strong energy, bringing in the potential for sudden, swift changes that create shifts and act as the catalyst for great transformation. Today is a potent day for manifesting. It is also the day of the new moon in heady, fun-loving, witty Sagittarius, which brings an aspect of joy and creativity that supports the intentions we are setting now.

Adding up all of the numbers in today’s date brings us twelve, and three. Twelve repeats the end-of-cycle theme and is synchronous with this twelfth month we are in. The one and two carry energies of manifestation and co-creative partnerships, and three supports the energies of manifestation. These aspects further underscore the potent manifestational aspects of the eclipse and the 12/12 to 12/21 energetic gateway we are in. This is a powerful time of transformation that supports the clearing of the old to make way for the new. We are climbing an energetic or vibrational ladder as we ascend and rise above past circumstances and transcend previous parameters and limitations to enter into the new realities we are co-creating as a collective and those we are creating individually. Seeds of intention from times long past may start appearing now; these could be things we asked for and forgot about or let go of and moved on from. We are reminded now of our past desires with their appearance in our lives. These are evidence of and reminders that when we let go of something and give it to the universe, we release our grasp on it and allow it to manifest, or allow ourselves to receive it. There are powerful lessons for us in this that can teach us to be more powerful creators, if we will allow ourselves to receive these lessons. 

What isn’t working is on its way out. We are guided to trust this, to know it, and to believe it to our core. There is no room for doubt or second-guessing now; these only slow down the process of reaching our desired state of being. If we have stalled before, now is the time to get really clear and serious about seeing ourselves living the life that we truly want to live. Enough is enough, is the message. There’s no time for anything that does not matter, as we have all had enough of surface, silly things. It’s time to strip away the veneers and consider the raw materials we are working with; these are the thoughts we allow into our minds and the relationships and energies we allow into our lives. Our guidance is to sweep away falsehoods and clear and burn away (energetically) everything that is not a vibrational match to us. It may be time to establish, set, and reinforce clear boundaries around ourselves, to protect our energy from anything or anyone that is draining us or misaligned to where we are now or where we are headed.

Mantra: I honor, value, and respect my time, energy, and boundaries. I am ready to make room for my best, most authentic life. I welcome improvements on every level.

Today is the eleventh day of the twelfth month. Eleven is a gateway number that brings forth the energies that are preparing us to enter tomorrow’s 12/12 portal. This transformative passage spans from 12/12 to 12/21, the day of the solstice. The divine reset point of the full solar eclipse on 12/14 flows through energies of powerful healing and transformation, and promises to shake loose anything that is not working for us as individuals and as a collective. What is not meant for us needs to go, and now is the time to set intentions, if you have not done so already, to release what is not appropriate for you and to welcome powerful healing and transformation.

Adding up all of the numbers in today’s date brings us nine, a number of endings. Twelve is a number indicating cycles, and this end-of-cycle energy is carried throughout the month of December. Today, we benefit from turning our attention to closures and finales and tuning into what is relevant for us right now. This flows into where we are headed, and we are guided to set intentions and goals for our desired path in the new year. When considering what we would like to happen for us in 2021, we can ask ourselves a few questions: What lights me up? What brings me joy? What new can I feel is ready to enter my life? You may have the sense of something wonderful that is on the brink of becoming. What is helpful now: Trusting that it will come to you in divine right timing and trusting the universe to deliver it to you in the best and highest way possible, then releasing it to the universe. Flowing into joy, peace, and unity consciousness is highlighted now.

During this energetic gateway and at all times, the power of our thoughts cannot be understated. Every thought we have informs our vibration. When we catch ourselves having a negative thought, we can choose to shift it in that moment. If we are looking at something in a negative way, we can shift that by finding a positive aspect to focus on instead. When we witness a behavior that we find less than satisfying, we can find appreciation for the fact that the being expressing that behavior is simply at a certain stage in their journey and may be working through something, clearing it in order to reach higher levels of understanding. Or perhaps their mission for this lifetime is to play a certain role in order to create change or awareness. In a state of appreciation, we open the path for all good things to flow to us, but we block it with any sort of negativity. Today is a powerful day for us to set intentions and focus on where we want to go, without looking at where we currently are or worrying about how we will get there. Energetically aligning with where we want to be will get us there so much faster.

Mantra: I can always find something to appreciate. I choose to think the highest and best thoughts possible in any given situation. I welcome healing and positive transformation.

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 thirtieth day of the eleventh month. Three is a celebratory number of joy, expression, expansion, creativity, community, and manifestation. It can indicate friendships, growth, and increase on many levels of your life. Zero is a number associated with the God-force and zero-point manifestation, a point of creation from which all things are possible. It reminds us of our powerful creative potential, and that we are the creators of our own realities. It also reminds us of the power of our thoughts. Our thoughts are like beacons, a radio broadcast signal we send to the universe to tell it what to deliver to us. The tarot card The Fool is associated with 0, indicating fresh starts, a reset point, and new beginnings. The number 30 brings aspects of happy new beginnings and reminds us to look at what we are creating and the developments in our lives with positivity, enthusiasm, and excitement for what is to come.

Today’s full moon and eclipse are significant in light of the aspects of the number 30. Full moons bring great healing, and eclipses are, like the number zero, a reset point. They often bring sweeping, powerful changes and shake loose what is outdated and what is not working or for your highest good in order to allow those energies to be swept out of your life. This clearing and energetic reset provides a stronger platform upon which can build anew. Today’s eclipse is a partial or penumbral lunar eclipse. Because it is a partial eclipse, its energies are somewhat lessened. This gives us an opportunity to prepare for the crumbling and release of energies that need to leave us and also offers time to go within. It is important for us to take time to do some self-exploration and really look at what is not serving us so we can set intentions to release it now. Journaling can be especially helpful with this, as we write down what we want to release from our lives and burn the paper to set the energies free.

All of this is in preparation for the full solar eclipse occurring just two weeks from now on December 14. Where the moon is associated with the feminine, receiving energies, the sun is associated with the masculine. Any inward looking done now through the next several days will help prepare us as we gain awareness of what could be better, how we would like to improve, and any changes we would like to make. The intentions we set now will pave the way for a great clearing, release, and transmutation of the old energies that will will be swept away powerfully over the next few weeks as the moon wanes, leading up to the solar eclipse. During the solar eclipse, we can set forth new intentions, planting those seeds in the fertile darkness of the new moon and watch them build and grow during the waxing moon phase leading up to the end of the year. 

Adding up all of the numbers in today’s date yields nine, which underscores the closure and finality of this time. It asks us to release so we can heal, to clear so we can welcome anew what is fresh and for our benefit and betterment. We are asked to seek and to expect improvements on every level now. Our knowing that these things are coming to us and developing for us will draw them to us like a magnet. A major cycle on earth is ending, for Gaia and for the collective; the new one begins on Dec. 21–the day of the solstice and the tipping point of darkness into light. As we seek improvements in every area of our lives and visualize ourselves rising up into improved, expanded, elevated versions of ourselves, this uplift is felt by the collective. When one rises, we all rise. The expansion of one is the expansion of all.

Mantra: I release what does not serve me and welcome changes for the better. I am expanding, growing, and improving on every level and in every area of my life. I welcome brighter, new, fresh beginnings. 

Healing and Eclipses: Finding the Light Within

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?
