DAILY VIBRATION & MANDALA REPORT: Wednesday August 31st 2016
Wednesday August 31st’s vibration (31+8+2+0+1+6) = 48/12/3. Today we have 3’s fiery, creative energy underpinning the root-essence vibration, with the numbers 12 and 48 coming into play, too. The creative fecundity of 3’s energy is represented in the 3rd card of the Tarot, The Empress: the Mother Goddess, representing the abundant flourishing of Nature, and reflecting the cyclicity of life, death and rebirth.
The Empress is sitting on a cubic stone, with 12 stars above her head. Ripe corn and an abundant harvest is in evidence all around, with a waterfall or flowing river pictured behind her. Next to her leans her shield, heart-shaped and with the symbol of the Goddess and Venus upon it. The Empress as a figurehead has the ultimate authority over an empire, which in her case, is the natural world of manifest creation. She is often depicted as pregnant, a clear symbol of fecundity and abundance.
The cubic stone indicates that her awesome creativity must be channeled through the realm of the material realm, the earth. The square and the cube are the symbols of earth and manifestation. This co-operation between 3 and 4 is referred to by the 12 stars we see: 12 = 4 x 3, and geometrically speaking, the 12-pointed star is constructed from 4 triangles, and 3 squares, you can see this quite literally in the mandala on the 12th card, The Hanged Man, and obviously there is a strong link between these two cards: of course, 12 has the root essence of 3, and we can link all the cards together through their root essence vibrations.
12 indicates time’s cyclicity, the wheat and harvest in the image of the Goddess card symbolising this, pointing towards the seasons of the year coming full circle, the seeds having been sown, growth occurring, and then the flourishing of the abundant harvest. She is telling us that what we sow, we will eventually reap, that time and experience is cyclic, what goes around comes around.
Number 3, 6, 12 Numerology Mandala: hand-painted by Rosalind Pape.
The 12 mandala shows the geometric expansion through TRIANGULATION of the 3 to the 6 to the 12. With 3 we have the TRIANGLE, which is reflected in the geometric expression of the 6, the STAR of DAVID, the symbolic representation of AS ABOVE – SO BELOW. Then the 6 is reflected again to get to 12, representing a grand epoch, or full circle of experience/time as reflected by the 12. What this Mandala shows is the exponential expansion that arises from the initial division of Unity as expressed by the form of the Vesica Piscis at the centre. It is here that we find the sacred ratio of light, expressed by the square root of 3, and it is here we find the geometry of the ALL-SEEING EYE/I, too! This mandala is designed to maximise consciousness expansion through the GEOMETRY of ENLIGHTENMENT!
With 12 we have a beautiful harmonic synthesis between the numbers and namely the geometries of 3 and 4. 12 is 3 x 4 and 4 x 3, and when you look closely at the 12 mandala, the 12-pointed star on the card, you will see that it is constructed from 4 interlocking triangles, 4 x 3 = 4 triangles. Look again, shift your gaze a little and you will also within this form 3 interlocking SQUARES too, 3 x 4 = 3 squares! (Clue: the squares all have purple corners!)
So with 12 we have 3, creative power, being manifested physically through the 4. 12’s energy influences us here on earth in many ways, but especially through the 12 signs of the Zodiac, and their planetary alignments. In earthly systems of counting, the number 12 is seen as a complete circuit, especially when we consider the face of a clock; there are 12 hours in a day, 12 months in a year etc which tells us that time really moves in cycles rather than in straight lines, and that what comes around, goes around, every cause has an effect. So 12 is considered a full set or completed range of experience, a full day of creation.
12 is 1 (the self, the Magician), going back to the womb of 2 (the High Priestess/Visica Piscis), to be reborn and enlightened, 3 (the trinity at the base of all creation: Matter, Energy and Consciousness – the Empress).
In esoteric science it is believed that every solar system has 12 planets around the central 13th Sun/Son, the Christos energy at the hub of the wheel, pictured in the mandala as the eye at the centre of the Vesica Piscis. This forms the blueprint for consciousness unfoldment and expansion, through the geometry of LIGHT. This mandala and the synchronised geometry therein reflect the great work of Alchemy, the transformation of spirit/light/consciousness into matter and back again!
The 12th Card in the Tarot is the HANGED MAN. The first thing we notice about the 12th card in the traditional Tarot is that the Hanged Man is hanging upside down from a tree branch, in suspension, just like the caterpillar in its cocoon as it waits for its transformation into the butterfly. The analogy fits perfectly. When 12 appears, great transformations are underway and there is nothing you can do but accept, wait and surrender to all the changes that are occurring for you now. The major theme here is about letting go and trusting in the Universe, and having the courage to surrender to your higher, divine will, rather than the letting the physical realm ego-self call all the shots.
In the image, the hanged man hangs from a tree by his ankle, and is free leg is bent at the knee, crossing over the hanged leg, so that it makes the form of the number 4. The number 4 represents the earthly realm, the tangible manifest realm governed by the 4 directions. The 4 appears upside down, illustrating the fact that the material realm is but a reflection of the true reality, the spiritual realm above. He is telling us that when we come to realise and understand this fundamental truth, we can put our total trust in the divine to help direct us in the earthly world. To consciously let go and allow the unconscious to take the reigns is a complete reversal of what we are taught in daily life, it is a risk that the logical mind must take, and the challenge that meets you today!
The 48th card in the Tarot is the 8 of Cups. This card is all about moving beyond materialism, and indicates a disillusionment in worldly goods, possessions and status, it tells us it is time to look deeper, to embark on an inner quest to seek true spiritual fulfillment. In the traditional image we see a figure dressed as a pilgrim, walking away into the mountains, turning her back on the 8 golden cups stacked up in the foreground. There are 5 cups in the bottom row, and 3 stacked on top of these, with a gap in the middle, indicating that something is missing: your true spiritual fulfillment!
Relating these symbols to the numbers, we have 4 as the material world, and 8 as the vibe of karma and strength, and with 12, we have the Hanged Man, the caterpillar in suspension, surrendering itself to the necessary transformations needed to change into a butterfly. All this ends in the creative expression of the 3, and with 3 there is always movement, so in order for you to become your true creative self, this vibration tells us to move on, let go of material attachments and relationships that no longer fulfill us as spiritual beings, and allow yourself to evolve and mature by accepting the changes and transformations that are occurring for you now. The road ahead may seem unknown and rocky, but as the seeker you need to trust that by letting go, you grow. Enjoy the journey!
Enjoy your day everyone! And if it’s your birthday or anniversary today, then this vibration stays with you for the year as your Personal Year vibration! Go well! Rosalind Pape.
