11-11-11: Reason Rules the Day
by Hans Decoz
What will you see on 11-11-11? While some people expect a day of luck and good fortune and others fear nothing but trouble, Numerology holds the real answers. Nearly every day of our lives we rush around at Mach speed, focusing all our precious energy on ourselves, our views and our personal problems. We see things as us or them, right or wrong, black or white. But on 11-11-11, we get a very rare opportunity to see the grey areas that lie between. That space that is so vast that it often separates us from others dissipates on this one day, drawing us closer to others and allowing us to connect in ways we normally just can’t.
At some point in your life you’ve probably been shown an inkblot or a cloud and been asked, “what do you see?” Maybe you didn’t even give the question a second thought, or just blurted out the first thing that came to mind. But when we rush through life ignoring these common visions we share with others, we draw further and further away, and our own light dims.
And that’s why 11-11-11 is such a powerful point in our lives. It’s a day that favors matters of the heart over the mind, a day when friendship, romance, caring, and all those other good qualities of life are of utmost importance. The more practical matters — running the country or your business, or even the details in your own household — take a backseat now.
The number 11 is directly associated with the feminine number 2, but while the 11 is therefore feminine, it takes these traits to much greater heights. The symbol “11” itself, even — the numbers 1 and 1, side by side — actually shows us a tunnel or funnel that represents the 11’s most important trait: the power to channel what is not visible or known, and bring it down to our level. It is the link between two worlds — the 11 is the grey area.
The number 11 also has many other positive attributes, such as compassion, tact, sensitivity, intuition, emotional intensity, passion and harmony. It is non-confrontational and likes to mediate and keep the peace. It is not weak by any measure, but will gladly step aside if that helps to avoid discord.
The repetitive presence of the number 11 means that feminine energy rules on 11-11-11. On a global scale and in our personal relationships, we can find common ground now. We’re able to avoid conflict by casting confrontation aside in favor of cooperation and give-and-take. There is more willingness to work together on this day, and a universal increase in compassion and caring.
Yet, there are other numbers at play on 11-11-11 as well. The 8 — the sum of all the digits found in that date — is a very karmic number, and is most strongly felt in the world of business and finance. So we may see some surprises in those areas, like major ups and downs in individual stocks and whole stock markets, or shifts in the Occupy Wall Street movement. We also can’t look past the 2 and the 0 found in the year 2011 — this increases the emotional instability of the 11, making us more inclined to turn molehills into mountains and let our emotions overtake our common sense. Lastly, the number 6 is also hidden in this date, which is another feminine number, bringing famiy affairs to the foreground, testing friendships and loyalty and perhaps calling for a bit of self-sacrifice.
11/11/11 may be one single day, but the effects of this date can be profound and lasting. Tune in. Reason with others. Connect, accept, love and listen, and you’ll find a more calm, complete and connected future.
