There were many posts on the meaning for 1/11/11. I decided to wait until the end of the the day and take a look back, see what happened. Was it what I thought it would be? Looking at the numbers, we are looking at new beginnings (the number 1), and an ascension to higher consciousness (11). Added together you get the number 5 - change. Add the first two numbers of the year to this, and you get the number 7 - seeking truth, looking within, and problem solving. Layer this energy over the energy of the universal year, which for 2011 is the number 4. It is a year of building, of setting down foundations for the coming years. It is about being responsible, and doing the work.

This is a time for us when we can most easily manifest positive change in our lives. The number 11 is connected with our intuition and psychic ability, as well as our faith and belief in ourselves. This is a day when if we look,if we listen, we will find the pieces that are missing.

For some, this will have been a nice, gentle process. For me it was not. I was thinking deeply about death. I am old ... but not that old! Yet thoughts of personal death came to me, and I was ready for them. Before you run out and dial 911, know that I am referring to a death of my life the way that it has been, and entering into a new life, on a higher plane of consciousness. It came to me symbolically as the death of me.

In one part of this lifetime I was a Medical Technologist. It took quite sometime to make the change into my next profession, that of reading Tarot professionally. I am in the process of transitioning from reading the Tarot to writing for a living. I can only hope that the process of death - of embracing what I need to release, and then releasing it, will make a clean break from my "old" life, and a gracious entrance into my new one.

Some things I know: this will be the last year that I attend a major Tarot event in a professional capacity. My interaction in the Tarot world will be as a writer, not as a reader. My first Tarot book will be published at the end of 2011. My writing project from the 2010 National Novel Writer's Month will be finished and self-published in 2011. My second Tarot book will be finished in 2011. I hope to make my first non-Tarot book into a series. My focus now is rightfully on writing and writer's groups, as opposed to Tarot and Tarot groups.

I have one saving grace, and that is that in 2009 music came back into my life in a big way. It has sustained me, and I am sure will continue to do so.

It will be interesting to hear other 1/11/11 personal stories. I have a feeling that there are more than a few out there, as the numbers are significant.

  1. Very thought-provoking Bonnie - and a lot of which resonated with me too.

    I just wanted to quickly explore the numbers with you, the year to be precise. As we know, it adds up to 4, and in tarot that is the Emperor. I've been feeling this energy since the end of December - and about time too! However, if we keep to stricter numerological rules we know we have an 11, a master number and one you have already talked about.

    I'm already familiar with 11 as I have so many of them in my birth name and birth details - it can be heavy at times. But onto the numbers, and for the benefit of those who may not know already,some numerologists don't reduce 11's to a single digit. If we did that here, we would have the following:

    2 + 0 + 11 = 13

    13 as you and I know is the Death card in tarot - something you've been feeling, and me also.
