December 11th – portal closure.
Opened 11/11 novembers new moon.
For the purposes of those whom are unaware, and still abide by the 12th zodiac, western astrology, I have included the sun/star sign of Sagittarius within this article, although by 13th zodiac astrology, technically, this new moon is representative of the energy traits of Ophiuchus.
Now, I will go into deal about what the 13th zodiac is all about, what it represents, and why it was so hidden, and buried for approximately 2000 years, whilst alienated from main stream, modern astrology!
Truly, the ultimate facts are amazing, and I cannot wait to fully unveil them, as it is my birthday on the 10th of December, and I found no better time to reveal this knowledge, than now!
I will briefly go into some of the traits, and aspects of the energy, and enchanting symbolism behind ophiuchus, in order to get you all to understand what this new moon is all about, and what it means for spiritual enlightenment, twin flames, and where we are on our healing journey.
Before I get into all that, I would once again like to discuss the significance of the number 11. And how it has played a hand in all of this.
The last new moon was also on the 11th, was actually 11/11, and symbolised the opening of a universal/energetic portal, a portal led, and ruled, by Scorpio.
The number 11 is by nature a gateway number, and has often been referred to as a spiritual gateway, or as I have referenced, portal. As represented by the shape of the number 11, appearing as two pillars, and symbolising dual natures working simultaneously, which of course we all know, govern existence, (masculine and feminine, yin and yang, night and day, light and shadow, life and death.
And that is all that scorpio’s energy is about, along with the energy of the number 11 – the integration of two opposing, yet complimentary sides, ultimately culminating in life and death, the underworld, and the afterlife.
Scorpio holds a powerful energy of transformation, rebirth, and immortality, (inevitably related to healing, as sickness and ultimately death is a natural process of life).
Life path number 11’s will be very familiar with their otherworldly tendencies, their exposure to a world rarely seen by many, often in the form of extra sensory perception, psychic abilities, or strong intuition.
I like to think of Scorpio as a very primal energy, signifying its richness, antiquity, and divinity. This can be interpreted from the actual animal itself being one of the first created animals on this earth, pre dating all mammals, as it is well adapted with adjusting to changing climates and temperatures. It has existed through it all, and has an appropriate amount of knowledge, and endurance to show for it!
Ultimately, the shaman.
The initiatory path.
For this reason, I view Scorpio, and the energy associated with Scorpio to be the iniatory path, into the darkness, into the shadow, and into the true underworld that is the sun sigh of Ophiuchus – November 30th-December 17th.
Ophiuchus is actually the intermediary between Scorpio, and Sagitarius, and actually possesses many more Scorpion traits in my opinion, than traditionally Sagittarius traits.
Scorpio and Ophiuchus are all about mysteries, secrecy, and ‘hidden’ knowledge. Many people attribute such qualities as being withdrawn, contemplative, quiet, and suspicious with those carrying Scorpion energy, and this comes as no surprise, as they are natural channels, and shamans on the path, therefore unless they develop a creative outlet, there is no other way to express their inner world. You can hardly find yourself talking to the everyday ordinary person about how you near enough hear voices in your head, (or gut rather), and can practically predict the future, and know things that you cannot explain.
Scorpio is all about the inner world, once again, ‘hidden’, and shrouded in secrecy. Introversy, and high levels of empathy are associated with both scoripos energy, and that of Ophiuchus. I like to refer to them as the old souls, as they both possess unparalleled magnetic ism, and intense sexual energy, (once again to do with them being primal, and ancient, such as kundalini, and essentially healing). These are energies that cannot be destroyed, and continue to manifest coiled up at the pit of each soul, waiting to be awakened. Souls who posssses these sun signs are not only awakened, but they ARE the awakening.
Now before I get off track, Ophiuchus energy is also associated with being primal, as it is represented by the serpent.
There is so much occult knowledge, and spiritual stigma surrounding the serpent being, and in my humble opinion, it is the perfect symbol of transmutation, alchemy and healing. The snake is an animal which has the ability to ‘shift’, or rather alter realities, when it is ready to sacrifice itself, and allow apart of itself to die, becoming reborn in the process. It is Scorpio that leads us through the dark path, which can only be described as the death, the shedding of the skin.
Ophiuchus is all about healing, the path of the healer, and the occult knowledge that belongs to the healer, as a result of undergoing the initiation process – the death, in which case, Ophiuchus is the revival.
This symbol is still present with us among modern times, and is often used in hospital, or medical institutions to convey medicinal, and healing properties.
This is of course all about subliminal planting, as on some level, those who have kept these symbols around, are aware that they are still embedded somewhere in our subconscious, and therefore, instantly recognisable for its purposes.
The symbol is often represented as the rod of Asclepius, or, instead consisting of two snakes spiralling upward, ‘the caduceus’ taking the shape and form of the DNA helix. This is also believed to be elaboration for the alchemical, and transformational principles of this astrological sign.
As memories from previous incarnations, soul imprints/missions, and karma is stored within the DNA, the unlocking of an energy of this sort, is thought to give birth to hidden, divine knowledge, whether by access of the akashic records, or by full blown kundalini awakening. (It is no surprise that both my twin and I are of these two signs).
Not many are aware, but the sign of Ophiuchus is also the astrological symbol for the woman, who is represented by the number 13, (which has since been darkened by the intensions of patriarchal dominance, and the silencing of the divine feminine).
It is the woman who is the original healer, keeper of the secrets, and the knowledge, accessed by the fact that she herself is a portal, much like the number 11. The divine flows through her. This can be symbolised by the shaping of the yoni, (the vaginal lips), which also take the form of two pillars, some may say a gateway. And woman has long been brought healing and forbidden, sacred knowledge by the presence of the serpent. They hold a sacred relationship that is as old as mankind.
The integration of dual sides, is the ultimate goal of this new moons energy. This will have presented itself in the form of the shadow self, and the dark night of the soul that was activated by the opening of these energies on 11/11, the last new moon.
Attention drawn toward the shadow self would have taken us in, to face the aspects of the self that we chose to ignore, or repress in everyday interactions, (but still know that it exists).
The shadow self may be associated with rage, hyper alertness to sensitivity/perceived abandonment, excessive jealousy, or manipulation, and will have been directly born as a result of an injury (psychological), dating back to childhood – particularly in the case of twin flames.
For twin flames, it could very well be their twin who has been triggering these issues within them, all for the purposes of healing, and transmutation.
The dark night of the soul does not only manifest itself as depression, but can also present itself as mental foginess, procrastination, and inability to progress. Often times, the universe//source//the most high, will slow us down, and bring us to our knees, so that we can be still, and take heed to the messages that are trying to be conveyed to us.
The journeying into the shadow self will include many images/flash backs to child hood memories, and you could even find yourself coming across objects, people of significance from your past. This is all intended to re-connect you with certain periods in your life, and help you to understand why your shadow self may only have grown more vicious over time.
Beware – as triggers are usually the way that source delivers these intuitive messages to us. If you keep stumbling accross emotions that are difficult to swallow, (loneliness, frustration, fear), then take all of these as alerts to yourself, from your soul.
Once again, ‘hidden knowledge’, as the journey toward self discovery, and the integration of the shadow self is so personal and intimate.
Twin Flame message.
You can take it as the energy that is currently ruling is in the favour of feminine flow, and this will directly affect the way that both twins think of, and view one another. Transformation is imminent. Not only are both twins faced with their own shadow self, but upon doing so, they gain a new understanding, and perception for the shadow aspects of their twin flame, and recognise how the entire path is paved with these difficult trials.
This new moon is all about acceptance of the initiatory path, and the surrender, to the knowledge, and the teaching that it brings. Even if we do not necessarily understand what is happening, and why, we are aware that we are underneath the guidance of something bigger than us, and we are far more interested in furthering our healing missions, than forcefully provoking reunion.
‘Twin flame runners’, who are operating at an energy that may be classified as highly masculine/logical, will have no choice but to let the light in, and undergo their own process of illumination.
Feminine energy, though passive, is powerful, and she will no longer take no for an answer! She has returned, after thousands of years, and is ready to bless everybody on the path with the knowledge that she carries. She has witnessed the imbalances created in her absence, and Scorpio is also relying on her to transform his dark energies.
As we smoothly transition into the sun sign of actual Sagittarius, from December 18th, we are likely to experience the freedom, change, and exploratory energies that Sagittarius brings!
Finally making it out of the otherside, we will have endured an entire death, healing, and rebirth process, in such a short amount of time, and should be more ready than ever to put our new skills, and spiritual abilities to the test!
If you were experiencing particularly abnormal, or chaotic dreams, they are likely to calm down, or once again be easily forgotten upon waking, unless you record them..
As I have mentioned before, intuitively, and astrologically, 2016 is going to be an amazing year for twin flames, old souls, and healers! It is the year for dramatic change, compassion and resolution. 2+1+6=9, the number of completion, and wholeness, (the additional number of mine and my twins life paths!)
Do not despair if your twin is still undergoing the dark night process, this usually just means that they are at a different level of the spiritual process, and just need a little bit of time catching up, and accepting that the serpent is not the enemy once depicted in mythology. But rather, the poison, is the very medicine.
This is an absolutely spectacular time!
Women – you are returning! Men – you are awakening, and I can not wait to trigger my own change with the numerological earth age of 5 (23).
Ophiuchus energy breaks the status quo- all over again, man and woman are uniting to rebel against the powers that be, and eating from the tree of knowledge!
