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 They often bring sweeping, powerful changes and shake loose what is outdated and what is not working or for your highest good in order to allow those energies to be swept out of your life.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.
