Today is 11:11:11 and there has been much talk about this day and this number. These numbers added up equal 6, the number of The Lovers, a major arcana card in the Tarot deck. The Lovers card and the number 6 is a harmonious blending of male and female, yin and yang, in and out and “as above, so below”. The Lovers card doesn’t always mean literally a “man and woman who are lovers”. This card is a metaphor of the harmony and balancing that can be done within ourselves as we all have male and female attributes and other (appearing to be) opposites within us. This card and this number is a reminder to be aware of us being all things and bringing ourselves into balance. (This puts a new spin on criticizing another…that thing we may be criticizing and judging that other person about is in our own makeup as well.)
If you add up 11:11:2011 that number is 8, the number of Strength, another major arcana card in the Tarot deck. I love the balance of the two zeros that make up the number “8”. The number 8 and the Strength card reminds us that we have the ability for our higher mind to control our lower (animal) mind. Our higher selves guide us to bring balance (those two “0’s” balanced on top of one another) and this number and card reminds us to use those intuitive, higher, soul-sourced faculties.
I also like that the number 8 on it’s side is this symbol: ∞
You will find that symbol on my site in various places. I have used it for years and it is the symbol of infinity…limitless ideas, thoughts and way of being. Whenever I see it I am reminded to let go of the barriers and obstacles I may be placing on myself.
And now for a fun fact…
If you add the last two digits of the year you were born, to the age you will be at the end of the year 2011, you will get 111! Try it…it’s rather amazing.
So the 11:11 is reminding us to look for the deeper meaning in all that is around us. It is a “gateway” number, allowing us to be aware of the access we have to the higher vibrations of the unseen worlds. It reminds us that there is more than meets the eye and unlimited energy available to us to create and manifest our dreams.
And at the root of it all are two “ones” (11) standing next to each other. In the “standing next to each other” all of us single ones are stronger, more powerful and more united, allowing us to access greater good for the world.
Have a beautiful and magical day!
