“For Pythagoras, mathematics was a bridge between the visible and invisible worlds.” Stromhmeier & Westbrook
Pythagoras, educated in Mystery Schools throughout Greece and Egypt, taught – among other things – about the mystical meaning of numbers. In terms of numerology, 2017 is a Ten year. The Card for the number Ten in the Tarot deck is the Wheel of Fortune and indicates the winds of change are blowing strong both individually and collectively. Into this realm of great change are brought the seeds of the future and the obligations and burdens of the past. It is a time of opportunity when new choices are likely to present themselves and contrary forces are about as well.
The upcoming New Moon/Solar Eclipse on 2/26 holds the potential of a powerful doorway from the past into the future. At the time of the Eclipse the South Node is conjunct Mercury, the Moon, the Sun and Neptune as well as Pallas Athena – the goddess of advocacy and wisdom. This planetary combination indicates that in order to advocate for your desired path forward it is key to identify and let go of unproductive thought and speech patterns which lead to a sense of discouragement, dis-empowerment and may be based on illusion. They may also have an addictive quality to them. These thought and speech patterns may have come down through blood lines and have an ancestral nature to them – indicating that keeping a heightened awareness of your intentions and of what you are thinking will bode well. As the Dalai Lama wrote, “We must always be thinking about what we are thinking.”
One of the Sabian symbols for this time is,”A petrified forest, an eternal record of a life lived long ago.”
