Master Number 11
Hans Decoz explains that, “in the case of the 11 (a double 1), it has the traits and personality of the 1 twice, and when added (11 = 1+1 = 2) becomes a 2, thereby combining the most powerful male energy (the 1, Zeus) with the equally potent female energy (the 2, Hera). Considering that the 1 and the 2 are on opposite ends of the spectrum and the sum of their combined attributes pretty much overshadows all other attributes assigned to the numbers 3 through 9 you can perhaps imagine a merging of the strongest, most driven and aggressive warrior, an unstoppable masculine energy, with the supremacy of the most intuitive, feminine, and cunning goddess. And even that does not reveal the true essence of the 11 Master number: The 11 symbolizes the potential to push the limitations of the human experience into the stratosphere of the highest spiritual perception; the link between the mortal and the immortal; between man and spirit; between darkness and light; ignorance and enlightenment. This is the ultimate symbolic power of the 11.”
Keeping in mind the opposing energies of the Male (Aries Sun) and Female (Libra Moon), we already see the duality and challenges with this full moon. The ego in Aries wants to charge ahead and in a reckless way with Uranus by his side acting without thinking, boldly causing havoc; acting without thinking. This energy is in direct conflict with Libra Moon who just wants peace, who is emotionally driven with the expansive energy of Jupiter. Libra wants balance, and Jupiter is more than happy to give, give and give to keep that false balance.
How Does 11 Fit In?
The Master number 11 wants to push the the human experience into the stratosphere of the highest spiritual perception according to Decoz. The link between mortal and immortal, between man and spirit. The ultimate goal is to bring these two energies into balance.
April 11, 2017 Full Moon in Libra
Above you can see the tension between Aries Sun and Libra Moon. Uranus is right by the Aries’ Sun’s side egging him on to do whatever he wants. He is the “I AM” after all. Uranus is the like the crazy mad scientist who just want to throw things together and try whatever, no matter the consequences. Aries is right in the mix, saying, “Yeah, let’s do it! With Uranus’ rebellious, chaotic behavior and Aries’ forge ahead action, things could get kind of crazy.
Soft Libra Moon, on the other hand, just wants peace. Generous Jupiter is right there with her giving and giving. Whatever it takes to keep things afloat. Poor Ms. Libra might be self sacrificing to the point of not knowing who she is anymore for the sake of the relationship. What she doesn’t realize is that if you’re not in control of where you’re going, the decision will be made for you. It may not be what you want and you ultimately find the scales tipping.
Then we have Pluto in the mix, acting like a S_____t stirrer. The more you stir, the more it stinks kind of thing. Pluto is forcing these two to dig deep and face the ugliness, the things we don’t want to talk about that we’ve kept stuffed away. Pluto is forcing us to take a look at the mess to bring these two oppositions to a breakthrough with this full moon.
What Can We Do?
“Journey Into The Hidden Realm” by Barbara Moore
The reading above was done with the intention that the card on the left represent the Aries Sun, the card directly opposing on the right, represents the Libra Moon. Pluto is represented by the card at the top forming a T-Square with the Sun and the Moon. The card below represents the release in Cancer.
The Five of Swords representing the Aries Sun talks about change and disruption as represented by the #5 in numerology. It accurately describes the energy of Aries and Uranus, forging ahead with what they want to do without thinking. It’s all about me and winning. The Five of Swords in traditional decks asks us to take a look about always being right–is it worth it? Is forcing your way, even when you think you are right always the RIGHT thing to do when people get hurt? Notice how the character looks away, focusing on their own intent. This person is not looking toward the Moon. Ironically, the character representing the Moon on the right, looks away from the Sun. Both are going in opposite directions. You can sense the pull of the energies.
The Faery Stallion, #7 representing the Libra Moon corresponds with the Chariot in traditional tarot decks. Seven is a challenge. This ties right in with the tension between the Sun and the Moon. The Chariot also represents direction, being in control or out of control. What does it take to bring balance, to go in the direction you want? You can’t forsake your authentic self and be led. Who knows where you’ll end up. Jupiter amplifying the Libra energy can tend to go off in the direction of giving and giving to the point of no return. The challenge to Libra is to find balance without sacrificing self.
Pluto, represented by the Four of Wands is right in the mix forcing the Sun and the Moon to look at him. When I saw this card, the first thing that came to me was chaotic music. Everyone playing their own tune, nothing in sync, everyone out of key. No direction. I pictured this Pluto music as loud and chaotic, trying to get the attention of the Sun and Moon to face what they don’t want to face instead of ignoring the problems. The music is so insane it forces you to want it to stop. You have to look at it and face it, to CHANGE it.
The release comes with Temperance # 14 in Cancer. Again 1+4=5, CHANGE. Release is found in Water, our emotions. Blending and mixing to find balance–a middle ground. Temperance brings grounding and wants to modify something to bring about a desired condition. The blending of the Sun and the Moon will actually bring strength to the relationship. Ironically, to temper can actually mean to adjust a pitch of an instrument to a temperament. So, when this balance is found, the musicians above in the 4 of Wands can find HARMONY. Harmony corresponds with the #4.
