October is the 10th month of this 10/1 year: (2+0+1+7=10=1). Every week has its own unique numerology too, and on October 1st, we entered a 10-week cycle in which all the week numbers begin with 4 – the number of logic and reason. 4 teaches us what we most need to learn. Delays and restrictions occur when 4 is active, but this vibration also provides us with the determination, persistence, and common sense to hang in there – prevail – when the going gets tough.
From now until late-December, 4 brings obstruction – but it also enables progress and breakthrough. 4 focuses on the reality of what we’re dealing with, and areas of our lives in which we feel ‘stuck’. 4 exposes ruts and routines – habits and addictions – and shows us that “it doesn’t have to be this way”.
Tradition is questioned – and we must remember that by nature, tradition resists change. And so, paradoxically, 4 also brings out opposition to new ideas.
4 represents success through hard work, organization, and diligent attention to DETAIL. Its critical eye points out errors and holds us back until we correct them. This mechanical energy shows us procedure, framework, and how things work.
“We are all just prisoners here, of our own device…” ~The Eagles, Hotel California
4 is a serious vibration. Only the facts will do. Precision. Exactness. Science. Focus. Method. Rules. Regulations. Observation. Correctness. Efficiency. Organization. Just imagine what can be achieved if we utilize this energy consciously, for the purpose of freeing ourselves from this box we are all trapped in.
4 is symbolized by the square, the box, the cube, the container, the prison. 4 represents SYSTEM – and it is this industrial/militarized/class system that boxes us in and holds the box in place. 4 represents barriers, law, order, policing, justice, maintaining control – and at the most extreme levels, austerity and authoritarian oppression.
The strictness of 4 may not sound appealing, but what we are dealing with now requires our strict attention. No matter what our personal plans happen to be, planning ahead makes little sense if we don’t know the direction we are headed in. 4 is the number of purposeful delay – thus the saying: “there is a reason for everything”.
The mix of inexperience and impatience with detail make standstill inevitable. 4 exposes the details, so we can study the facts and base our decisions on what we learn from them.
We’ll be learning a lot about karmic 13/4 in the next ten weeks. 13 is not ‘unlucky’, but it does insist that we take responsibility for our mistakes and miscalculations – and correct them. There may be some inner-shock involved as new understandings dislodge old beliefs – followed by the fulfillment that comes with learning something new.
We will also be feeling the affects of master number 22/4 which enables us to think and act BIG in terms of helping people, not harming them. But if 22 is mishandled, it creates chaos on a very large scale. For every action, there is a consequence, and both 13/4 and 22/4 show us that the consequence of power depends very much upon whose hands it is in.
“When a situation is not made conscious, it occurs outside, as fate.” Carl Jung
1 brings change through activity, actualization, and activism. 1 is the number of action. 3 communicates outwardly what we feel inside. 3 = population, popularity, entertainment (and our addiction to it). It’s not a matter of suppressing art. On the contrary, when we come out of this wall of denial that we’re currently struggling through, consciousness will expand and our creative abilities will reach entirely new levels. 3 is the number of creativity, and the 21st century places us in a hundred year cycle of expansive, communicative, creative 3 energy (2+1=3).
The first day of October gave us four distinct bursts of 1:
Year = 2+0+1+7=1+0=1.
( 1+1+1+1 = 4)
It was on the 274th day of the year that the USA suffered its 273rd mass shooting of 2017, at the “Route 91 Harvest Music Festival” in Las Vegas. The 10 energy brings things to new levels – and the demand for gun regulation in the USA is increasing significantly. With such a powerful gun lobby, changing the rules will be extremely difficult, but with the resolve of both 4 and 10, (logic, reason, intelligence, innovation, and new potential), progress can be made if the WILL is strong enough. The Will is made up of our emotions – the feminine energy within us all.
As we learn more about our emotional power, remember that terror is also an emotion – the most heightened form of fear. And terror-ism is the deliberate infliction of terror on others – no matter where that person is from or what ideologies are in place. It takes more than the customary “thoughts and prayers” to achieve meaningful change when it comes to this horrific loss of precious life. Only a large scale voluntary change of heart and mind can do that. When logic and reason spread, mind and emotion can then agree with each other – and that is when truly meaningful change can be implemented.
“Racism is man’s gravest threat to man – the maximum of hatred for a minimum of reason.” Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel
On October 2, the much loved multi-talented rock star Tom Petty died. This sad event is also connected, in an inspiring way, to the upsurge of hate, racism, nazi-ism, and old programming – and the overcoming of these things. There was a time when Tom Petty used the confederate flag as part of his act (1985). He grew up in the south, where this flag was part of daily life for most (white) southerners. But as he became educated on its symbolism and its connection to slavery and the Ku Kulx Klan, he expressed his deep regret and completely denounced it. He said:
“people just need to think about how it looks to a black person. It’s just awful. It’s like how a swastika looks to a Jewish person.”
What a timely analogy. Along with his music and other talents, he left us with a visual, emotional, intellectual, and logical message of love. A vital aspect of our evolution is to recognize the ignorance we inherited from previous generations, which left us oblivious to the harm it does. Understanding the past is how we learn what works, and what doesn’t, and what’s real and what isn’t.
But much effort is being put into whitewashing history so that we cannot learn from the mistakes of our ancestors. Many text books, (especially children’s), routinely distort the facts. This Canadian book completely erases the plight of Native Americans, blotting out the Trail Of Tears and all the other atrocities, by stating that Native Americans merely “agreed to move to other areas” to accommodate the influx of white Europeans. This of course is just one example. The erasing of history (cover-up) is happening everywhere.
There is so much going on all over the world – all connected to history and our endless wars, and by the brutal (and illogical) nature of the system itself. 4 is the number of system, and in this age of transparency, we can see things more clearly now.
1 is the number of the individual. The number of change and progress. 10 brings us to new levels and new potentials. Mixed with this concentration of 4, blockages can be removed by pushing practical ideas into reality. This gives individuals a larger role in changing the overall direction.
On October 10, 19, and 28, we are moving through 10 10 10 10 energy. That’s 4 tenfold – requiring major effort – and hopefully resulting in major breakthrough.
2 = caring, cooperation, connection, patience, and UNITY.
2 = others.
22 = many others, and connects directly to the circumstances of large groups of people.
22 takes us beyond our limits and enables us to focus on our true intent. But if our intent is selfish, greedy, or inhumane, the results are chaotic and destructive.
In a world that demands instant gratification, it is difficult to accept that a quieter, humbler, slower, and more focused pace is needed. But that is what we must do if we are to notice the details and make the right decisions.
These waves of concentrated 10 energy remain with us through October and November – and the 11 year of 2018. As we evolve out of the 1 energy of the 1000s and move further into the 2000s (towards 2020, (which is when the decade of the 10s ends), we are forced to learn what 1 has to teach. Things cannot improve until we do.
For the next 15 months, we are moving through alternating and often clashing bands of masculine-electrical-intellectual 10/1 energy – and feminine-magnetic-sensitive 11/2 energy. Circumstances are rigorously triggering our emotions, but our conditioned minds want to prevent our feelings from expressing themselves outwardly. When we hold our feelings in, (denial), they settle in specific areas of the body where they fester and make us ill. We all have ill-feelings which must be allowed to move and heal if we are to move forward in the journey of life. But in some cases, we will see these repressed emotions bursting out of people as rage – sometimes silent rage which can be even more deadly because we cannot see it coming.
Ill feelings have different causes and symptoms because we have all had different programming and experiences. We are 1 – but we are not all the same. That’s where 2 comes in to teach us about the chemistry – and potential – of our own different parts – mind, body, emotion – our individual diversity. October 2017 is a 2 month. Only inner peace can create outer peace. Everything starts within.
