Follow The Signs: Making Sense of Those Repeating Numbers

When I was in college, I began seeing 11s everywhere. Most commonly, I would catch the time 11:11 or 1:11. At that point in my life, I wasn’t super connected to spirituality in very obvious ways. I was 19 years old, trying to figure out who I was, get through school, navigate relationships and have a bit of fun here and there.

The numbers happened so frequently though that one day I decided to Google 11:11 and that was when I found entire communities devoted to some kind of so-called “awakening”. It was described as a “key”, “portal”, “gateway” to higher consciousness. We were undergoing a shift, a leveling up, and those sensitive to these energies would see 11:11 as a sign that they were on the right path and a reminder of their true spiritual nature.

I was intrigued. And looking back, I can say that time in my life was pivotal in a lot of ways. A crossroads even, and the decisions I made then, very much link to where I am today.

Since then, the numbers are still a part of life, and I hear many others talk about the patterns that show up for them. Now, it’s not just 11:11. It’s 2s in sequence, or 3s. Personally and lately I’ve been seeing a lot of 4s and 5s - but what does it all mean?

The High Priestess & Justice: Two Side of the Same Coin

Full disclosure - I am of the camp that believes Justice has found it's proper place as the 11th Arcana, though I know there are many who prefer it as the 8th and I am sure there are plenty of valid reasons why that makes sense. However, I'm here to discuss one of the reasons why the latter resonates more with me, and that is because in the 11th spot, based on numerology, it vibrates in line with The High Priestess.

While on the surface, Justice and The High Priestess appear to have little in common, I actually consider these cards to be two sides of the same coin and the secret to reading the tarot. A bit of a bold claim I suppose, but stay with me and we'll get to that...before we do though, let's explore the visual similarities and differences.

2018 By The Numbers: Personal Year vs. The Collective

My introduction to personal year numbers was a few years ago at a psychic fair. I sat with a skilled intuitive for a reading, and the first thing she did was very matter-of-factually inform me that I'd be heading into a personal year 7. While I was familiar with life path numbers and other facets of numerology, I had no idea what a 7 meant in the context of my year ahead. She went on to explain: The coming year for me would be less about the stuff and more about solidifying my connection with myself and the divine. It was a time for introspection, reflection and receptivity. Man, was she ever right...

Since that introduction to the personal year number, it's become a bit of a ritual to spend some time in December calculating my year ahead on both a personal and collective level. And that's what this post is really all about. Calculating your year ahead number, embracing the collective shift, and providing a brief overview of what it all means.
