Monday 6th February’s vibration (6+2+2+0+1+7) = 18/9. 9’s energy takes centre-stage today, with 1 and 8 adding their flavours, too. Because 9 is the final single digit in the root essence family, it naturally completes cycles of experience. But it also initiates new cycles, because after 9 comes 10 and a whole new cycle of experience begins. So the 9 teaches you that you must be prepared to let go of the old and embrace the new and allow the natural completion of one cycle as another new one begins. This lesson , I think, was permanently ingrained in our psyches during 2016, the 9 vibe year that we won’t forget in a hurry!

Number 9 Numerology Mandala: Hand-painted by Rosalind Pape.

We know that often the letting-go process can be painful, but the energy of the 9 naturally cuts away dead wood for you today, and ends situations that no longer facilitate the fullest expression of who you really are. 9 reminds us that through letting go of the past we can evolve and gain wisdom. Focus on this gain today, rather than the apparent loss of things that have come to pass.

The main intention of 9’s vibration is to promote natural evolution. Evolution is a process of moving through experiences, learning from them, and then letting them go so that you can move ahead to further experiences. Knowledge becomes wisdom over time, and we know that the ancients knew how 9 governs the cycles, or rather, spirals of time in the Universe. 9 is also known as the Humanitarian, altruistic vibration: The 9 knows that true fulfillment and self-nourishment comes from giving loving service to humanity. It has high ideals because being the final single digit it naturally symbolises completion, perfection and attainment.

The 9th card in the Tarot is The HERMIT. The Hermit is standing on top of a mountain, holding out the lamp of reflected ageless wisdom to the rest of humanity. S/he has attained, and evolved through the cycles of growth that 9 completes. The Hermit has detached from the pettiness and density of the material plane by focusing on the task and goals s/he has set and by looking at all obstacles as opportunities for growth, experience, and ultimately wisdom.

The key symbolism of the Hermit is the “Lamp of Hermes” that s/he holds out. If you look closely, you will notice that the symbol of 9 is actually a lamp with a handle, a container of light that enlightens and illuminates darkness and ignorance. The Hermit knows that knowledge is worthless and meaningless if it is isn’t shared. True wisdom, and true fulfillment is achieved by giving out and reflecting your knowledge, and becoming a catalyst to enlighten others.

Today is definitely a day to set some new goals: the word GOALS actually adds up to 18! We are approaching a major Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Leo this Friday, the 10th, and Eclipses are times when we wrap up the old and focus on the new goals and plans we wish to create.

Although it is usually the New Moon that gives us the big opportunity to write down a Lunar Manifestation list, this Eclipse is urging us to set our intentions clearly now, and although it is only Monday, or MOONday, today is giving us the green light for prepping early, start thinking about what you want to use Friday’s potent energy for NOW! And guess what, today’s Tarot card vibration, card 18, is……The Moon!

The Moon rules our subconscious, and when we are sleeping under the moon, our subconscious rises up from the underworld and fills the mind with symbols and emotions that hold deep meaning and insight for us, we just need to know how to decipher them! Keywords for 18/9’s energy are reflection, influence and intensity. The Moons’ light reflects our emotions to us clearly, and spotlights what and who are really influencing our lives, thoughts and decisions.

18/9 can highlight the fact that we may be distracted by a number of influences in our lives, often conflicting ones: with 18/9’s vibration we have the Sun (9) and Moon (the 18th card) merging, traditionally male and female, or the left-brain and the right-brain, the issue is that the two influences are polar and there may be a lot of work involved with trying to bring them into balance, or trying to see which direction is the correct one in the moment.

We see these two polarised aspects as the two pillars on the left and right sides of the Moon card. We also see the polarity of the Wolf and the Dog, wild and tamed, or free and controlled! But the path of evolution leads through the MIDDLE WAY! So the themes of Balance again, are paramount. The Moon amplifies our emotions, and there could well be some emotional turmoil that is distracting and confusing to you today. The best advice when the Moon card appears is … sleep on it! Although nothing may make much sense to the rational, objective mind right now, your subconscious intelligence is speaking to you and the power of a revelatory dream is at hand.

So the energy of 18/9 is all about using the inner light to reflect into the darkness, the lower aspect of the 8 here, to investigate the subconscious mind, the dream landscape and dimension that gives us symbolic information about what influences us. It’s a great idea to start a dream diary today, enabling you to form an accurate library of symbols from your dreams that can give you great insights in the waking world. We also have the 1 energy here to help us focus and gain mental clarity.

9’s energy here is giving us the power to let go and surrender, accepting that life is a cycle of endings and beginnings, and not letting the past influence our decisions and actions. Reflection refers to the Lamp of Hermes that 9 symbolises, the inner light of wisdom expressed outwards by the Hermit in gratitude and empathy. Only by going within does the Hermit truly illuminate the darkness. 8’s energy pulls us out of density on her magnetic slipstream and gives us a glimpse of the cycles of cause and effect that give us a clearer and deeper understanding of how our thoughts and actions, our karma, create our experience. 1’s energy influences us to action, and aligns our will and intent with our own inner divine self.

The Moon card is intense, but is showing us that when we let go of ego-(fear) driven influence, impulses, thoughts and actions, we can see things as they really are. 18/9 makes us sensitive to the body’s needs; the body consciousness speaks to you today and will let you know that it needs regular exercise, fresh air and retreats away from the daily grind in order for you to feel vital and healthy. Today is one of those days.

Enjoy your day everyone! And if it’s your birthday or anniversary today, then this vibration stays with you for the year as your Personal Year vibration! Go well! Rosalind Pape.
