Editor’s Note: While elephant is dedicated to being of benefit, generally, and specifically, we focus on our environment, arts, education, social issues, equal rights, meditation, and non-new agey spirituality. So why do we host Astrology, many readers ask? Isn’t it just star superstition? Well see the video below by editor Waylon Lewis. And: as long as these articles are seen for what they are–fun, thought-provoking–we have no problem with them. ~ the editors.
February 29th 2016 is an extremely high vibrational day, so it is essential to focus on remaining grounded, centered and balanced to absorb and fully incorporate the energies.
In numerology: (2+9 = 11) and (2+2+1+6 = 11) equates to 11:11
Every year the number 29 (2+9=11) occurs once in every month, apart from in February, as the number 29 only appears once in every four years. As this year is 2016 ((2 (February) +2+0+1+6 = 11)) it means the total date calculates to 11:11, so we are currently experiencing an extremely rare occurrence.
Most Eastern and Western countries used the standard date yy/mm/dd (2016/2/29) or dd/mm/yy 29/2/2016) which equates to the same 11:11 Although the U.S.—and to a lesser extent Canada—uses the format mm/dd/yy, in terms of numerology the leap year date on 2016 translates to 11:11.
As the numbers 29 and 2 only fall together once every four years there will be a rare and intriguing energy in the atmosphere. Not only is it a leap year, the leap day falls on a double master number, 11:11, which represents awakening and enlightenment.
“According to numerology the number 11 possesses the qualities of patience, honesty, spirituality, sensitivity, intuition and is idealistic and compassionate. Those people who are drawn to 11, operate on a different level of energy than most, and when two people come together who both have this type of energy it’s almost combustible. 11:11 is the universe’s way of urging us to pay attention to our heart, our soul and our inner intuition. It’s serving as a wake-up call to us so that opportunities are not missed in this lifetime.” ~ Kate Rose, Elephant Journal
The number 11 in numerology also represents visions, artistic creations, inventions, innovation, revelations, fulfillment, independence, achievement, individuality and overall highly sensitive beings. 11 is a higher level up from the number 2, which represents love, harmony and balance. Therefore incorporated into the number 11 is an infusion of all the properties of the number 2.
As the number 11 is repeated, it is a wake up call that alerts us to pay attention to patterns that have previously been replaying so that we can recognize anything that is not serving us either individually or as a society as a whole.
We may have noticed lately that we have been seeing a lot of repeated numbers, particularly 11:11. This is a sign that we are attuned to the energy that is pouring in right now and that we can use it to propel us onward on our journey.
Early in the morning of 29/2/16, the energy will begin simmering in our solar plexus, which is the chakra associated with our emotions and intuition. As the day progresses the energy will gain momentum and bubble until we literally feel energized enough to “leap” into a new higher dimension.
As we have been given an extra day, and one with immensely high energy, we can use this time to create affirmations and repeat them throughout the day as a catalyst to create the life we were born to live.
Our intuition will be extremely high right now and we will be experiencing many moments of deja-vu with synchronicities occurring throughout the day. In fact, we may have noticed an increased amount of repeated number sequences or unusual and coincidental happenings more than normal over the previous few weeks in preparation for 29/2/2016’s energy.
The term “synchronicity” was coined by Carl Jung and he explained that regular occurrences are more than just “frequent coincidences” and appear specifically to align us to our highest potential by showing us the reality behind the dream-like world we exist in. They are sharp and sudden unmistakable jolts that are delivered by the universe in the form of subliminal messages. They are sent to gently shake us so that we arise from slumber and no longer walk around in a sleep-like state.
Jung went on to explain that synchronicities are revelations and they only occur if we are actively participating in them, so if we are experiencing synchronicities it means that we are already involved in the unfolding of our full potential.
The reason synchronicities feel so highly significant is because they are confirmations that we are exactly where we are meant to be, or who we are meant to meet, at the exact right time. Whenever we place our faith in these occurrences we will be rewarded by more of the same. Each event, whether minor or major, will direct us closer toward our unique and divine higher purpose.
Synchronicities also give us a sense of interconnection to all that exists as they allow us to have faith that whatever is in front of us on our journey has been placed there to assure us that we are safe to unravel and evolve. Regardless of whether whatever happens to us is a trial or tribulation, a blessing or a curse, it is all perfectly playing out to propel us to look beyond any illusions and gain clarity and new understanding that is required for our vital spiritual growth.
Synchronistic illuminations offer integration and oneness and when we follow our intuition they expose our much sought after twin soul. Although many believe the twin soul can only be found through entanglement with another being, we reconnect with our twin soul when we eradicate our ego and peel away all the layers to encounter the vulnerability and humaneness of our soul, in all its shades.
“Synchronicity is an ever present reality for those who have eyes to see.” ~ Carl Jung
We are also energetically gifted with the mystical qualities of Pisceans due to 29/2/2016 taking place in the sign of Pisces.
Pisceans are the most spiritually advanced star sign, which means currently we will be feeling an enhanced and profound connection to our emotions, intuition, imagination and creativity. The combination of these characteristics will swiftly guide us closer toward whatever we are destined to achieve.
Pisces is the last sign of the zodiac, so this period also represents letting go of our old existence and preparing for a brand new phase that is fueled with a significant amount of 11:11 high frequency enlightening energy.
As Pisces is a water sign we will also have the grace and skill to flow through any obstacles that adorn our path, rather than pushing against the current and reverting to familiar patterns that have previously held us back.
Overall this is a time to become highly aware of our thoughts, emotions, feelings, memories, intentions, motivations and beliefs as essentially all of these things are colluding to manifest our current and future existence. If there is anything not going right for us, or we are struggling in certain areas of our life, we can pull it straight back to an ancient wound that needs attention before it will heal. 11:11 also brings forward the wounded healers in us, which causes us to reach out to tormented souls before first resolving any conflict in our own.
We will be guided toward taking better care of ourselves emotionally, physically and mentally through this time and by doing so, we will clear any old karma that has been keeping us captive in the past.
As we are waking up to this altered state of reality we can now take complete charge over our destiny and begin to create and achieve whatever it is we aim for, quite simply by remaining aware and alert to the signs all around and the sensations they trigger within.
When we look at the number 11 we can perceive it as the opening of a door. On 29/2/2016 we will receive the invitation to step into a significant phase in our life, one where we are being offered optimum opportunity to break through old habits and charter change. Our movement will be assisted with the electrical waves of magnetic energy that are all around us right now. They will repel or attract any entities we want to dispel or draw in toward us.
One side of 11:11 is a door that we can courageously walk through and open a new chapter and leave behind the old. The other side is a window to look through so we can use our insight and see what’s slightly ahead so that we can be forewarned or forearmed and empowered to continue.
We have a rare chance to use this 11:11 leap year energy, as this number will not land on a leap day again for many years. Therefore, if we have ever been tempted to make a plan far beyond our wildest imagination, today is most definitely one of those “miracles-and-wishes-can-come-true” days. It is now time to view the potential inside and make whatever you have been dreaming of happen.
Wait until the clock strikes 11:11, watch the clock for the entire minute and then close your eyes and take an exhilarating leap into an intriguing and magical future. Fortunately, there is double the opportunity to manifest life-changing transformation, as 11:11, as always, occurs twice during one day.
