Week 42 runs from October 14 to 20. This is a 6 week in the world, the number of love, responsibility, and balance. Both 4 and 2 gather information through patient attention to detail. This enables us to see a bigger picture and gain a much fuller awareness.
The truth-seeking combination of 42 sparks new ideas and visions of future possibility. 42 adds up to 6 – the number of reinvention, and despite the often terrifying spiral we are traveling in 2016, and from which we really cannot escape, we are also in the process of reinventing ourselves.
6 makes us responsible for our own decisions, and helps us find balance in common-ground. 6 represents all MATTERS OF THE HEART and is strongly associated with love, marriage, children, family, devotion, education, entertainment, health, healing, justice, and peace.
This energy can also be judgmental, ‘superior’, territorial, and ruthless towards opposition. And yet, even in this extreme position, 6 provides the experience from which to find BALANCE. The physical heart is where everything MEETS within our own bodies, as well as in the wider world.
9 is the number of endings, outcomes and eventualities, while 10 reminds us that an ending is often the start of something new, and that life does indeed go on. We are propelled forward in the course of time, but are held back by our inability to learn as we go. And so, here we are, in the 10th month of this 9 year, where so many different things are coming to a head at the same time.
That’s the spiral effect that the 9 energy emits. When 9 is active, we either change what needs to be changed, or we have to start all over again – until the lesson is learned. We are certainly at a major turning point in the human journey, and the principle choices include:
love or hate
hope or despair
caring or cruelty
stability or chaos
confidence or fear
And notice how we are having to experience hate in order to fully appreciate love; how we must experience despair in order to understand the power of hope; how we have to be caring to counteract cruelty; how the terrors of chaos help us seek true and lasting stability; and how courage develops out of fear.
This week, spiraling 6 joins spiraling 9 to help us recognize what we need to learn. We are holding on to the past because we are afraid of what the future may bring – forgetting that we create the future as we go, but never reach it. Our only way forward is in present time, which is why we must learn from the past so that it can move to its natural place behind us – and stop dragging us backwards.
9 IS A POINT OF EXIT, and we are likely to find that there is a LOT for us to let go and leave behind this week – willingly.
Emotion is our response to experience – our inner truth – our honesty. To evolve emotionally does not mean resisting our feelings. It means being able to feel everything we are feeling more easily and acceptingly. Only then can we truly understand what the experience actually is. Emotion is feminine energy, and the chaos surrounding us now is bringing our feelings to life. We are evolving both emotionally and mentally as a result.
Much of what is happening on Earth right now is the shock produced by leaving denial and facing reality. When the numbers shift at thousand year increments, the change of frequency is so immense that we are forced to look at what we have avoided and what has been hidden from us. This increase of awareness helps us find our footing in present time, which in turn builds evolutionary bridges between the past and present. This enables us to transform what we have, rather than have to start all over again – from nothing.
The decade of the 10s is a cycle of systemic change – and introduces a whole different way of doing things. One of the major lessons we are currently learning from 1 is that if we are to make any progress at all, humanity has to love itself as a species – to unite in a spirit of caring, inclusion, and peace… which is what 2 symbolizes. This does not take the joy and excitement out of life – it takes the utter misery and drudgery out of life. What the world needs now really is love sweet love.
There is never a time at which love does not love unconditionally. Love is love, no matter how we channel it in and out of us. Love is the central theme of this week, and with all that is going on in the world, and in our own lives, we must try to take some time to simply BE, to breathe, and to find balance and peace within.
People everywhere are demanding change where there is atrocity, injustice, inequality, unfairness, and bigotry – all of which describe IMBALANCE. 6 is the number of BALANCE and EXTREMES – and there are likely to be vivid reflections of both this week. 6 provides us with reflective insight. What we see started somewhere else. Every story has a beginning – followed by the steps it took from there.
6 represents FAMILY, and we are likely to feel this strongly this week, both personally and on the world stage. We must never lose sight of the fact that we are all part of one big family called humanity.
As we leave the 1000s, 1 teaches us about the SELF, and right now we are on the very rocky road towards SELF ACCEPTANCE. We cannot have or even understand the concepts of unity and equality until we know who we are as individuals. Perhaps the events of this week will bring us a little closer to that understanding.
