This year as we open our calendars, our global village will collectively experience the transformative energy of Master Number 11. Before we look closely at its powerful energy, let’s look at the 2, 1, and 8, which are energetic components of our new year.
As many of you know, the 2 – which governs our entire millennium and is the lower octave of 11 – is feminine and intuitive. It seeks compromise, consensus and balance. Throughout this decade it has been sharply opposed by the masculine energy of number 1. (I can hardly wait to write my article for 2020!)
The 1 has been on “overdrive” in 2017. (This will continue in this “double 1” calendar year.) It represents mental energy, independence, individuality, and ambition.
Both the 1 and the 8 are leadership numbers. This was a strong theme in 2017 and it will continue next year. The 8 energy is karmic: What goes around comes around. In its highest expression it calls on forces of justice and integrity to prevail. Its lowest expression is greed, bullying, and power without compassion.
Our dominant number 11 is a number of extremes; and because it is the most difficult of all numbers, it brings the greatest potential for challenge, deconstruction, and growth. There is nothing gentle or subtle about 11. Its purpose is to wake us up and put us on a correction course. It helps us to clarify our values and priorities, and to develop a stronger connection with our subconscious and the collective superconscious.
This is the number of the visionary, the psychic, the inspired and enlightened philosopher, peacemaker, poet, musician, or inventor. It is the number of personal magnetism and charisma. It is also a number of instability. Astro-numerologists associate it with the planet Uranus, which is known to bring sudden, unexpected developments.
So how might this high-powered energy manifest in 2018?
First of all, as the number of illumination, it will clear a path for the truth to make itself known. Much light will be shed on some very dark corners.
The 11 supports fact finding and pierces through incompetence, pretense or misinformation. Individuals in the U.S. will no longer be able to suppress information about collusion with Russia. In Canada we may finally see some progress with the inquiry into missing and murdered indigenous women.
We saw the beginning of the “Me Too” movement in the last few months of 2017. The tipping point has been reached, individuals have been named, and this process will accelerate in 2018 and 2019. That’s good because there is a long way to go. (In the tarot deck the number 11 represents justice.)
I believe that accountability will be a major emerging theme in 2018. This will apply to corporate leaders as well as politicians and others in a position of authority. We may see unexpected upheaval in leadership this year.
On a brighter note, the 11 carries elements of communication and collaboration that could support high level diplomacy.
It also supports technological advancement. We could see innovative and highly effective applications of technology, especially in the area of mental health.
There may be major advances in the development of alternative energy sources. I think the number of electric and hybrid cars in use will grow significantly.
Other industries and initiatives favoured in 2018 include:
- Film, Broadcasting and Journalism
- Information Technology
- Lighting and Photography
- Energy Healing
- Psychic/Intuitive Counseling
How can you ride the crest of this wave?
Pay special attention to your environment. Be mindful of what enhances or depletes your energy, who you spend your time with, and what you take into your consciousness.
Make good use of the heightened power of manifestation that comes with number 11. Affirm that this year, 2018, will bring you even greater opportunities to manifest whatever it is that occupies your mind and heart.
Seek ways to serve others in a spirit of love and compassion. Send positive thoughts and heartfelt prayers and affirmations to any and all troubling situations in your personal life and in the life of our global village. Visualize desired outcomes and believe yourself worthy to receive and achieve all that you desire in 2018.
Wishing you a Happy, Healthy, and Prosperous New Year!
