Happy New Year and All Blessings for 2011!
"Transmutation is the process wherein an integral system changes structure and behavior so fundamentally that it reveals different aspects of nature. Transmutation has two prerequisite phases: transition and transformation.
Numerologically speaking, we are leaving a number "3" year and entering a number "4" year. The ancient philosopher, Pythagoras, of the 5th century B.C. assigned energies and power to numbers and letters of the alphabet giving each a vibratory frequency. Numerology is a science of vibration and is one that if used correctly can offer guidance in decisions we must make on a daily basis.
So, we're leaving a universal number "3" year (affecting everyone), derived from adding 2+0+1+0, the number expressing amusement, creativity and new ideas, development of talents, the spending of money, restlessness, a tendency toward scattering of forces, and a demand for pleasure and luxury. We are now entering a universal "4" year (2+0+1+1). The key word for number "4" is "work." It is a year of building after a general shaking-up, making practical our creative ideas. Affairs must assume their level again - slowly but surely - rebuilding a secure foundation which is vital to lasting success. So the year ahead is not just one of hope, but of getting down to brass tacks and walking the talk. ~ from Your Days are Numbered by Florence Campbell and Numerology for the New Age by Lynne Buess.
Barbara Hand Clow informs us that "the New Year is not January 1st! The new year - the Spring Equinox - occurs around March 21st when the Sun enters 0 degrees Aries by geocentric astrology."
"The time to make plans for each year is during the Spring Equinox, not during the so-called New Year. The Spring Equinox is the time to identify the intentions we wish to fulfill during the four seasons. Ideas correctly seeded at the Spring Equinox manifest for a year. During the Summer Solstice, the time has arrived to birth these ideas into recognizable form, like a forming fetus. The Fall Equinox is the time to flesh out, balance, and assess these creations and to weed things out that just are not working. Then the Winter Solstice is the time to enter into deep contemplation to imagine how our personal creations assist others and the planet." Barbara Hand Clow
So if we make our New Year's resolutions on January 1st, perhaps we can renew them at the Spring Equinox.
May all your best dreams come true ~ Robert Moss
