Week 17 runs from Monday, April 23, to Sunday the 29th.
1 (action) + 7 (intelligence) = 8 (power). It sounds simple, but at this stage of the human journey, there is a great complexity involved. 8 focuses on POWER in all its forms, including the power of DESIRE.
8 represents the Material Plane, which we often confuse with ‘materiality’ and greed. The Material Plane is Mother Nature herself, our main source of feminine energy, which greed is constantly attacking and throwing out of balance.
Everything on Earth originates in nature. Whatever we DESIRE, Mother Nature provides.
DESIRE is one of the strongest vibrations we have. We cannot exist without it because desire is the initial movement of life. The desire to BE. The Will to LIVE. However, the fact that human beings can desire horrific and despicable things doesn’t alter the fact that desire is an essential part of life. It all depends on whether our overall intent is loving – or not.
We are evolving from an antiquated system of male supremacy, white supremacy, and wealth supremacy, which relies on DENIAL OF REALITY for its existence. This system of competition and contest is where the horrors and atrocities of racism originate – and all forms of prejudice. We are not the ‘human RACE’. We are human beings.
In Week 17 of this illuminating 11/2 year, denial is much harder to maintain. No one is immune here. Our personal and collective awareness is expanding. And the more conscious we become, the more we recognize the predicament we are in!
In a system that is driven by contest and war, it is only a matter of time before the system goes to war with itself. And it’s only a matter of time before a system driven by destruction destroys itself.
The road out of denial is fraught with danger and brutality. But here in the feminine 2000s, our position is also filled with opportunity, potential, creativity, and the wonders we can achieve when we express ourselves from the heart – openly and freely. Peaceful intent takes us onto a path of realism and honesty, and the DESIRE to transform what we already have into something more caring, imaginative, intelligent, fair, balanced, loving, and joyful.
Greed is desire that is so out-of-control that it desires to control the desires of others. What craziness we live in! We are programmed to believe that desire is the problem, while being bombarded with advertising and enticements which increase our desire – for material things. It is our desire for freedom, justice, peace, and harmony that this system cannot tolerate.
1 is the INDIVIDUAL.
7 is the MIND.
1 is outgoing.
7 takes you inward.
1 exudes confidence and fearlessness.
7 needs to know exactly what it’s dealing with.
1 is doing.
7 is learning.
In Week 17, we experience both the chaos caused by lack of awareness – and the bigger picture that attention to detail creates. 17/8 highlights efficient planning, true understanding of existing information, and an intuitive ability to correct its own imbalances. But when the imbalance goes unchecked, 17/8 exposes extreme self-interest, arrogance, greed, jealousy, impatience with detail, and denial of the facts.
WEEK 17 BRINGS PROGRESS – THROUGH CONNECTION.
The events of Week 17 are connected in various ways to the decade of the 1980s. The decade of money and power, bullying, hostile takeovers, insider trading, and the belief that money rules, might is right, and greed is good.
The main reward of 8 is the feeling of SATISFACTION that comes when you truly and thoroughly appreciate what you already have; and when you know you have enough. Greed is the inability to feel satisfied and therefore never happy. Greed is the belief that there is no such thing as enough, thus a constant feeling of lack.
As we evolve into our true selves, we see the shallowness of those outdated tactics. 17/8 shows us that we are so much more than the old system allows us to be. Fascism exists to prevent us from realizing our true worth, our true power, and our free Will. It must not be given a chance to take hold!
As we gain the power of self-acceptance, the controlling forces are scrambling to extinguish the rising WILL of humanity. As we move further into the transparency of the 2000s, the denials, lies, deflections and maneuvers are utterly astonishing. Therefore, on the road to 2020, we really must BE “the change we want to see in the world”.
