Numerology #3, #33, #333




I’ve played with numerology somewhat in my life – especially in terms of how it relates to astrology. When you are involved with the esoteric arts, you don’t actually avoid things like numerology.  And, now with the Chinese medical studies, numerology becomes even more important.

I opened up a random page of one of my new books written by a blogging colleague, called “Flying from the Heart,” by Julianne Victoria. It’s a beautiful collection of poems that feel very familiar to me. I opened to a random page, #33 and determined it was my favorite. I think maybe you should check out her book if you are interested in knowing more about her poem there. I don’t want to get involved with any copyright infringement. 😉 

The number 33 then started to echo in my mind, like “look me up already.” It was weird because I know I have done this before, but there was something I had missed – so “it” suggested. This is the website I found:

What I was nudged about then was, “this is your life path number.” I remembered being a “6” but then I thought, well, let me do the math again. So, I did. Sure enough, #33.  So why am I blogging about it?

I’ve got a 7th house Sun – living for other people – making them feel special, well it’s been my “little thing.”  I like to bring joy into other people’s lives, and so when I see this “33” as some master smaster number, I kind of just thought in my head, “whatevs,” this is just ego stuff.

With a 3rd house Chiron, I often felt like I did A LOT of talking, and no one really listened much to me.  Well, things are changing, and I’m changing.  My injury that’s healing has been changing me.  I don’t want to be “preachy.”  It’s like my worst fear on the face of the planet. As the youngest sibling, EVERYONE had something to say that was more correct, or more worthy than me of being ‘heard.’ Don’t worry about my whining, I’m trying to express a point:

Yesterday I went to my acupuncture appointment (for myself), my treatment room was #133. Then, this morning after really connecting with another blogger via email– and seeing so much synchronicity with the astrological 7th house, I searched for a particular article of hers, as I said I would (Italy), didn’t find it but I came up with another article of hers: 333 

Do you think the 3’s are stalking us?



The planet Jupiter: Guru & Teacher, Nelson Mandela


Leader and Teacher

Nelson Mandela has passed away today. He left us a legacy of wisdom, beyond any words.

The voice of Sagittarius manifests as optimism. Nelson Mandela had both Sagittarius Ascendant and North Node.


 “I am fundamentally an optimist. Whether that comes from nature or nurture, I cannot say. Part of being optimistic is keeping one’s head pointed toward the sun, one’s feet moving forward. There were many dark moments when my faith in humanity was sorely tested, but I would not and could not give myself up to despair. That way lays defeat and death.”  ― Nelson MandelaLong Walk to Freedom: Autobiography of Nelson Mandela

I want to spend a little time and attention on Jupiter just now. In astrology, Jupiter is the ruler of Sagittarius. He’s the guru and teacher – a benefactor. He helps us to make use of knowledge (his complement on the zodiacal dial is Gemini, knowledge).  Jupiter is wisdom, and is pretty relevant right now. We’ve got the Sun and Mercury transiting in the sign of Sagittarius (per the tropical zodiac).

The word “guru” means to remove ignorance, or darkness. Guru is a benefactor by helping to support that which leads to the enlightenment of the student. A teacher arrives when the student is ready, they say. I say *also* that the teacher lives in you, and assumes external manifestations as the student realizes itself as the teacher. This is important, for the student to see the teacher outside of himself first – this part of the process is not to be skipped, for this is how we realize our ideal.

Sagittarius has a special understanding for nature…

Nelson Mandela on the nature of leadership:

 “When you want to get the cattle to move in a certain direction, you stand at the back with a stick and then you get a few of the cleverer cattle to go to the front and move in the direction that you want them to go. The rest of the cattle follow the few more energetic cattle in the front, but you are really guiding them from the back. Nelson Mandela then added: That is how a leader should do his work.”

“We have laid the foundation for a better life. Things that were unimaginable a few years ago have become everyday reality. I belong to the generation of leaders for whom the achievement of democracy was the defining challenge.” — Speech to Parliament in Cape Town, March 26, 1999

With his sun in the sign of Cancer, he acted as guru to the whole consciousness of the human family, centering his energy strongly at home working for freedom from apartheid in South Africa. Nelson Mandela helped guide people through truth and reconciliation (healing) out of the ignorance and darkness of apartheid.

“During my lifetime I have dedicated myself to this struggle of the African people. I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black domination. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities. It is an ideal which I hope to live for and to achieve. But if needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die.” — Statement at the opening of his defense in the Rivonia treason trial, April 20, 1964.

His chart’s ruling planet Jupiter (Guru) is currently transiting his solar home sign in Cancer – just as a hero/leader/guru returns home beyond the veil of the material plane. May he be eternally in peace.
