The 44th week of this 9 year produces a strong 5/3 atmosphere which focuses on creativity and ‘new life’. The combination of 5 and 3 is the ultimate pregnancy vibration because 5 denotes sex and the physical body, and 3 represents the child. Both 44 and 53 = 8, the number of manifestation, making this a time to be as creative as you can be, not only in matters of the arts, but in all areas in which IMAGINATION is needed to change what you already have into what you want.
Although both 4 and 8 are numbers of attainment, their approaches are quite different. 4 brings results through hard work, determination, and great attention to detail. 8 brings results through attraction, desire, and feelings of worthiness and even entitlement (“I deserve to succeed”).
This week, as both approaches work in balance, you may find the very formula you are looking for to make something special happen, either immediately or in the near future. This is a week of conception! A week in which IDEAS can come to life! This is a week in which to lay a firm foundation for future results.
44/8 enables great levels of concentration and determination which can be used to accomplish almost anything you put your heart and mind into. 44 just ‘gets on with the work’ and does not have time for airs and graces, self- consciousness, or fear of what others may think of your efforts. (A similar energy occurs in Week 48 which runs from November 25 to December 1 – so you have time in which to discover what those changes entail).
It is said that ‘necessity is the mother of invention’ – and we must develop the courage to let our ideas flow beyond our usual ‘cut-off point’, and WILL them into being with the power of our desire. THAT is Free Will. We have been programmed to believe that desire is somehow wrong, but that is not true. It is desire that keeps life alive, starting with the survival instinct. It is the intent behind the desire that brings ‘right’ and ‘wrong’ into it.
This week, the detail-oriented 44 energy, which thrives on logic and the laws of cause and effect, demonstrates that if we do not recognize what the past has to teach, history will simply repeat itself until its lessons are learned. There are so many different issues involved in the world that it is impossible to recognize them all. But no matter where we live, unresolved historic issues are now emerging in present time – and in our own lives. The combination of 9 and 44 prevents forward movement until matters of the past are SETTLED. True settlement means that the realities of all concerned are put in perspective, given acceptance, and concluded fairly. True settlement means that those involved genuinely accept what is agreed upon, so that peace can arise out of the discord.
Unfortunately, the word “settlement” has become warped in the effort to WIN rather than cooperate. Notice how indigenous people – natives – are clearly in view now because fairness was never part of their ‘settlement’. Notice how the “contracts” of capitalism are ironclad, while “treaties” for the wellbeing of people who suffered OCCUPATION are ignored and dismantled.
American history often conjures up images of the “wild, wild, west.” But Hollywood turned those very real colonial days of “cowboys and Indians” into mere entertainment, with the cowboys (white Europeans) as the ‘good guys’, and the Indians as inferior ‘savages’ and ‘red skins’. Now, reflections of what we thought were times-gone-by are re-appearing in the present, but in quite a different light.
Look at the history of the corporate takeover of Standing Rock, North Dakota in 2016, and the massacre at Wounded Knee in South Dakota in 1890. Both are 9 Years, which indicates that nothing was learned from the Wounded Knee atrocity which took place 126 years ago, (1+2+6=9).
9 takes us back so that we can learn what we were unable to learn.
The protective protests of Standing Rock cover many issues, including the human rights of Native Americans, the impact of OIL on climate change and the environment, the collaboration of oil/mining companies with the police, and the corporate control of WATER. Back in Week 39 (North Dakota is the 39th State) pepper spray and dogs were used as weapons by private security companies against those taking a stand to PROTECT their land, water, sacred grounds, and their very dignity.
Like the air we breathe, water is essential to all life and is not something to be ‘owned”. But the CEO of Nestle, Peter Brabeck, believes this to be an “extreme” point of view. He has stated, quite famously, that water is the same as any other ‘food product’ and must therefore have a market value. This is extreme denial of reality!
The focus on water is deeply connected to the rise of feminine energy across the globe because feminine energy is emotional energy, which is fluid. Emotion is intrinsically associated with water and the respiratory system within the body. It is through the power of the feminine moon – LUNA – that the oceanic tides find their rhythm, as well as the cyclical movement of a woman’s menstrual cycle. WATER, like blood, is the flow of LIFE. But water is being poisoned, and blood is being shed, for industrial profit and domination.
The poisoning of the water supply in FLINT, Michigan, is another prime example. Water shortages in the Middle East and Africa are adding to the refugee problem as people are forced to move to areas where water is less scarce.
Both North and South Dakota turn 127 years old this week – week 44 – on November 2. Both Dakotas are in the 4 Year in 2016, producing another set of two 4s. Perhaps this will bring a climax of events. Or perhaps all this 44 energy will bring a much needed intervention by the 44th President of the USA, Barack Obama.
This is an urgent situation. This week, Amnesty International USA sent human rights observers to monitor the North Dakota protests.
Also this week, 141 unarmed Native American protesters at Standing Rock, were maced, assaulted, and arrested for trying to protect the land and water-supply that was bestowed to them by TREATY with the US government. The connection here between mining and oil industries – and a militarized police force – is undeniable.
ON THE SAME DAY, a group of armed white men, headed by brothers Amman and Ryan Bundy, who earlier this year, seized a public wildlife refuge in Oregon, were cleared of all charges, including ‘firearms charges and conspiracy to impede federal workers’. The situation involved unpaid grazing fees for their cattle on government land, and their story played out day after day on national TV last January and February. Their astonishing acquittal has been attributed to the incompetence and over-confidence of the prosecutors, but one must wonder how any legal team could be SO remiss. White privilege works in mysterious ways.
The Bureau of Land Management(BLM) was involved, which at the time caused some confusion because the Black Lives Matter movement (also BLM) was simultaneously making news of its own with protests against police brutality, and a police presence in black neighborhoods which is becoming more and more militarized. BLM also adds up to 9.
Blatant racism runs through the Bundy case, too. It was Amman and Ryan’s father, Cliven Bundy who, after his own ‘land rights’ standoff in 2014, made this highly racial statement which, at the time, seemed completely out of context. In retrospect, it is all connected.
“I want to tell you one more thing I know about the Negro… in front of that government house the door was usually open and the older people and the kids – and there is always at least a half a dozen people sitting on the porch – they didn’t have nothing to do. They didn’t have nothing for their kids to do. They didn’t have nothing for their young girls to do. And because they were basically on government subsidy, so now what do they do? They abort their young children, they put their young men in jail, because they never learned how to pick cotton. And I’ve often wondered, are they better off as slaves, picking cotton and having a family life and doing things, or are they better off under government subsidy? They didn’t get no more freedom. They got less freedom.”
There is even a symbolic connection this week between the massacre at Wounded Knee and the recent practice of ‘taking a knee’, instead of standing for the national anthem at sports events to protest police brutality against black people in America. We kneel in prayer. We also kneel before our oppressors. In this case, athletes kneel to take a stand.
Black Lives Matter is no longer a solely American movement. Its principles have also taken root in the UK, Australia, Canada, and other nations around the world — along with other movements to recognize and protect the rights of indigenous people. Australia is also looking inward now at the treatment of aboriginal people there. Canada has it’s own indigenous situation going on as a hydro-electrical corporation intends to build on sacred Indian ground.
There is an enormous attempt right now to force those under occupation to comply with the system that overpowered them, and remove whatever ‘rights’ they had. Colonialism is fighting to remain relevant in a world that is evolving into FREE WILL. Position is what gives structure to the class system – which is why titles are so important to it. The ultimate position is #1 – the number we are evolving from = as we continue our journey into the 2000s. 2 is the number of EQUALITY.
All this is happening at a time when human consciousness is expanding beyond the old illusions of reality and tactics of deceit. It was Nazi Propaganda Minister, Joseph Goebbels, who wrote:
“Always accuse the other side of that which you are guilty….”
…and this almost unbelievable tactic is being played out – invading and draining our senses – every day – by power-hungry individuals around the world.
Meanwhile, with the American election just a week away (week 45), the announcement by FBI director James Comey that he is ‘reopening’ the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails – without giving any details whatsoever – threw the mainstream media into a speculative frenzy. The timing of this announcement is extremely dubious since the activation of early voting means that the election is already underway. Such vagueness in this week’s 44 energy suggests it will not hold up. 4 thrives on the study of specifics. Perhaps one of the reasons the Wikileaks ‘revelations’ have had little impact is that since September 30, we have been traveling through a ten week cycle in which all the week numbers begin with 4. DETAIL is paramount to 4.
There is always an upsurge of tension when master numbers are present – and ALL the master numbers are represented this week, and throughout November. No one is immune to the nervous tension that master numbers generate, and we must remember this when things get rough or confusing.
As we move closer to the turning point of 2020, every effort will be made to knock us backwards, so that feminine 2 does not get a chance to take root. It may even seem that everything that has been blocked is surging forward at the same time… but TIME is the moving framework on which life evolves, and its power and meaning extend way beyond the clocks and calendars around which we currently ‘design’ our lives. Time has far more depth and dimension than we realize, although the study of numbers does bring some understanding if we are prepared to go deep enough.
In the 2000s, we will learn that 2 is a gentle, peaceful, and slow-moving feminine energy which activates our sensitivity and feelings. But if you try to push against it or speed it up, it pushes back hard and slows you down even more! 2 is the number of PATIENCE AND RIGHT TIMING.
2 provides added depth and the wider view that comes with patient attention to detail. 2 brings INCREASED INTELLIGENCE – which is why the surge of anti-intellectualism is so strong right now. 2 brings caring and fairness which are essential aspects of humanity’s survival.
We ALL have a role to play. 44 is the most balanced form of 8, and 8 is the number of POWER in the material world, including the personal power that each of us holds as individuals – power that we have never been able to utilize fully in this system of control. But the purpose of power is not to overpower or control the population. Its purpose is to empower and enlighten the people so that energy can run smoothly without one energy overpowering another. The freeing of the human will is happening, and there is much reason to be optimistic about it provided we understand the timing involved. (Again, 2 is the number of patience and right timing).
8 governs economic matters, the procedures of the corporate world, and what we call the ‘establishment’. It is possible that a major change in these areas could occur in this 44/8 energy – but because so much secrecy is involved in such matters, we may not know about it for some time to come. This does not have to be a traumatic event (although it could be). When 44 is active, situations often arise which are beneficial to the people.
4 is the number of ORDER, SYSTEM, and DESIGN, and 44 shines its light directly on the order of preference (prejudice) in which this “class” system operates. All Master Numbers are made up of multiples of 11, the number of illumination, enlightenment, inspiration, and transformation from within. 2016 is a 9 year – and November is the 11th month. Therefore the urgency of the 9/11 vibration is working here, too. Both 9/11 and 11/9 have a tendency to produce REVERSAL.
Not only is 11 the most balanced form of 2 – it is the ONLY way that 2 can form.
Humanity is moving so fast, that we cannot see how one thing is connected to another. The pressure that comes from speeding things up against 2’s deliberately slow current can make you physically, emotionally, or mentally ill. So whenever you feel intolerable pressure, you are probably pushing too hard or are allowing yourself to be pushed beyond your endurance level. You may have a lot going on in your life, but you will deal with it more efficiently (and enjoyably) if you do it at a slower pace and observe the details and nuances as you go. 2 gives us the ability to RECOGNIZE, RELATE, and ASSOCIATE (connect the dots).
There are wonderful things happening in our world against this cruel and violent backdrop, and it is important to recognize the balance that is forming between the pain and unfairness of the past, and the potential of the future, without denying our true feelings about either. For all the dire circumstances and atrocities, progress is being made in all areas of life by people who are dedicated to transforming our world into a more loving, fair, unbiased, and livable place. Even on the streets of Aleppo, and other areas that have been torn to shreds by war, there are beautiful precious people there who try each day to make a positive difference. Even under conditions that most of us could not even begin to imagine, people try to balance their despair with hope. Even where Free Will is most deprived, the Will pushes forward nonetheless – the will to LIVE. But so much Will energy remains to be freed in terms of human trafficking (slavery), and so many other crimes against humanity.
Denial of reality is what gives the power-hungry the power to continue their control. Denial of reality is the biggest obstacle that Free Will faces. Awareness of reality has always been our most effective safety net – which is why we are always kept so distracted. Once we stop denying the truth of our situation, as precarious as it may be, we take back the power that was extracted from us, leaving the ‘controllers’ weakened and less able to manipulate. But it is not just people who need to regain their will. The whole planet has been rendered will-less, including the animals who are under constant relentless and heartless attack. Mother nature is feminine energy in material form – and she must be protected. She is our home and our sustenance.
This does not mean that you have to get involved in protests or engage in radical action. Free Will means not having to do anything you don’t want to do. All you have to do is express your feelings about what’s happening – to yourself – or to someone you trust. The capture of the Will is the capture of the very thing that drives us forward – our ability to express outwardly what we are feeling inside.
On a personal level, this is an ideal week for establishing something important by giving it foundation and form. Laying down roots. Helping something to take shape. Looking for ongoing and long lasting results, rather than a quick fix. 44/8 is fundamental life-changing energy, the results of which often surpass the original vision.
For instance, the INTERNET dates back to October 29th in week 44 of 1969: It was called ARPANET back then, and was the first-ever computer-to-computer link. While the internet of today certainly has its drawbacks, it has helped form the transparency that is so essential to understanding our world – and ourselves.
In the other extreme, it was in Week 44 in 1911, on 1 November, (1 11 1911), that the first combat aerial bombing mission took place in Libya during the Italian/Turkish war. Several small bombs were dropped on that day, and the tactic was obviously successful. The practice has escalated to the most terrifying levels. But only by making peace within ourselves between our masculine and our feminine within the love that’s in our hearts can we ever stop the wars in the outer world. Emotional healing – the freeing of the will – is a huge responsibility for us all.
44/8 represents STRANGERS and the MEETING OF OPPOSITES. In order to keep this aggressive system in place, people are set against each other. Having enemies (and often for the most ridiculous reasons) ensures that wars are endless. This is why war – and post-war rebuilding – are the most profitable industries of all. Divide and conquer is an evil tactic – and it works. But as we move forward towards 2020, our increasing awareness gives us a much better chance to change things than we have ever had before.
NEXT WEEK: Week 45 is the last 9 week in this 9 year – the week in which the 45th President of the USA will be elected.
