DAILY VIBRATION & MANDALA REPORT: Thursday September 8th 2016
Thursday September 8th’s vibration (7+9+2+0+1+6) = 26/8. With 8 leading the way today, energetically, everything seems to increase, and that usually means your responsibilities, your bank balance and your desire to be a success on all levels, your business, your relationships, everything. 8’s symbol is INFINITY, after all! But what this symbol also illustrates is the infinite flow of cause and effect, the boomerang flow of karma. So the experiences of today may indicate a karmic pattern that will give you sharp clarity about a situation. Often, the word karma sends off alarm bells (!), but really 8’s energy is just about taking responsibility for one’s actions, and brings with it the awareness that your actions reverberate like ripples from the stone thrown in the lake.
Number 8 Numerology Mandala; Hand-painted by Rosalind Pape.
8’s symbol represents the ancient spiritual axiom of AS ABOVE –SO BELOW: it is constructed from an upper and a lower circle, indicating that the material realm is merely a reflection of the much more expansive spiritual reality. The upper circle represents the heavens or spiritual consciousness, while the lower circle represents objective, 3D consciousness and the earth plane. The symbol of 8 shows that the material realm is a reflection, the polar opposite of the Spiritual world. The symbol and energy of the 8 also represents the cycle of cause and effect, of life and death and rebirth, and shows us that there are no final endings, new beginnings always emerge. The cube, symbol of the earth, has 8 vertices, and the concept of death belongs only to the earth, we usually only see the lower half of 8’s cycle while on the earth.
Pythagoras called the 8 “Light and Darkness”. We can submerge ourselves in the density and greed of the material realm, in the lower half of the 8, (the dark aspect), or we can move up to the spiritual realms of light that exist above the material, symbolised by the top circle of the 8 symbol. The flowing, infinite, tidal energy that 8 creates, keeps our consciousness flowing between these two states and enables us to bring our ideas down to earth.
Salt, regarded by the alchemists as the most material of minerals, symbolizing density of matter and death, crystallizes in cubes. Mediaeval writers on numbers associated the 8 with immortality. Many baptismal fonts are octagonal in design, following the ancient tradition that 8 is symbolic of rebirth, hinting at the fact that ancient Christianity embraced the concept of reincarnation.
Astrologically, Saturn is the planet linked to the number 8. Saturn rules the manifest world of order and form, and has a powerful impact on our lives. When Saturn’s influence is strong we often face situations where we suddenly or finally have to face or change our response-ability. Response- Ability, is our ability to respond to situations, and Saturn is known for shaking up the order of things to get to the truth of situations. And fascinatingly, the word Responsible adds up to an 8! Often, with 8’s energy, well-established foundations will break apart to reveal the fundamental reality underneath. The 8 is the revealer of truth and knowledge.
The 8th card in the Tarot is Fortitude or Strength. The card depicts a woman standing over and grasping the open jaws of a lion. She is calm and in control, and has power over the lion without being forceful or aggressive Most decks have 8’s symbol of Infinity pictured above the woman’s head. The lion symbolises our wild side, our animal-instinctive self that must be tamed by the intuition, or the seeker within us, which is symbolised by the woman or the feminine, receptive side of our nature (the Goddess). The calmness she displays tells us that we must seek to tame or focus our animal instincts with a gentle attitude, rather than a severe one. Through calm and focused discipline, we can balance our minds and develop the ability to consciously create and take responsibility for our reality.
The Lion is the Ego, the Solar Plexus centre, our individualized will. When we act according to our animal desires, we become entrapped in the dense suffering of materialism. Rather than trying to ignore, avert or go to war with our ego-selves, 8’s ebbing and flowing energy reminds us of the continuous flow of water, working away at the stone, in a calm, patient but very assertive way, which is the correct approach in the transformation of the ego self into spirit self.
26/8 is known as the good news vibration, the 6 communicates through the voice especially, the 2 desires to share, and the 8 also highlights synchronicities. So, messages you receive today may highlight good things coming from good deeds done in the past. This is a good vibration for making financial deals, signing contracts etc, generally, anything started under an 8 will grow and grow, as long as you adhere to the small print.
All the numbers in 26/8 share one keyword: BALANCE. The 2 as the scales weighs things up, the 8 is inspired to merge the influences of the material and the spiritual worlds, and the 6 seeks to create harmony through being supportive and utilizing its excellent communication skills.
In the 26th card of the Tarot, the Page of Wands stands gazing at the staff of power in his hand. He seems to be weighing up the power he knows he has inside, and now he contemplates how best to put it to use. He has yet to put all his powers to the test, but now seems ready to embark on his quest, symbolised by the plains and mountains that lay before him. He is protected by the talismanic properties of the salamander cloak he wears. The Page of Wands expresses feelings of excitement and optimism, he is eager to get going on his journey to new and different experiences, it’s a great day to plan a trip that will take you far into the realms of creative expression and inspiration!
Enjoy your day everyone! And remember, if it is your birthday or anniversary today, then this vibration stays with you for the whole year as your Personal Year vibration! Rosalind Pape.
