DAILY VIBRATION & MANDALA REPORT: Saturday October 8th 2016
Saturday October 8th’s vibration (8+10+2+0+1+6) = 27/9. A 9 vibe day today, amplifying the 9 vibe year! The first thing to note with 9 is that it is the last number in the single-digit series and therefore kind of heads the family, and in many ways 9 has learned the lessons of all the vibrations that precede it; it has climbed the mountain of experience offered by the previous numbers, and now stands atop the mountain, having attained knowledge, wisdom and clarity, and ultimately, Empathy. We see these symbols clearly in the 9th card of the Tarot, the Hermit.
But before we go into detail about the Tarot symbolism, the important aspect of 9 for us to really absorb today is the process of having attained, we now LET GO. 9 is endings, the cycles of time that are generated by the Sun are inscribed by 9’s spiraling, cycling energy (we see this in the actual shape of the 9 symbol itself), and as we reach the last of the single digits, cycles of time and experience naturally end, to make way for the next cycle, the new phase. Because what 9 really shows is that the cycles of time and experience here on Earth never actually stop turning, they evolve over the gnomic growth pattern of the spiral, emanating out from the centre of our consciousness.

After 9 comes 10, and a whole new cycle of experience begins. So with the 9, you must be prepared to let go of the old and embrace the new. Sometimes the letting-go process can be painful, but the energy of the 9 naturally cuts away dead wood for you, and ends situations that no longer facilitate the fullest expression of who you really are. 9 teaches us that through letting go we can EVOLVE and gain wisdom. 9 shows us that in time all things come to pass, and that relationships and situations can come to a natural end, making way for something new.
Although we have clearly seen this year that endings have indeed been more apparent, with many significant players leaving the earth-plane, we also know that as they leave their cycle of experience here on Earth, they enter into new and more expansive cosmic cycles that further their evolution. And that really is the essence of 9’s energy: evolution over time. The more experiences we have, the more we learn, the more we evolve, and expand. Today gives us the opportunity for us to finally LET GO of all our emotional baggage, all the issues that we worry over that root us in the past. It is now time to embrace the future, and whatever that may bring in this powerful NOW moment! We must put ALL of it down to experience, we are here to experience, to garner a sense of empathy for all souls here living on this planet and trying to make sense of it all.
And how to do that? Well, time to go back to the lessons of the Hermit, as illustrated in the 9th card of the Tarot: the Hermit is standing on top of a mountain, holding out a lamp of reflected ageless wisdom to the rest of humanity. S/he has attained, and evolved through the cycles of growth that 9 completes. The Hermit has detached from the pettiness and density of the material plane by focusing on the task and goals s/he has set for and by looking at all obstacles as opportunities for growth, experience, and ultimately wisdom.
The key symbolism of the Hermit is the “Lamp of Hermes” that s/he holds out. If you look closely, you will notice that the symbol of 9 is actually a lamp with a handle, a container of light that enlightens and illuminates darkness and ignorance. The Hermit knows that knowledge is worthless and meaningless if it is isn’t shared. True wisdom, and true fulfillment is achieved by giving out and reflecting your knowledge, and watching it enlighten others. So 9 is all about reflecting the inner light of your wisdom to the outside world, too.
The Hermit can be portrayed as a wise old woman or man, the key theme being one of learned wisdom. But the negative aspect of age can be expressed by rigid stubbornness and an unwillingness to accept or entertain new ideas and perspectives of life. The Hermit is really our timeless inner teacher, the aspect of ourselves that records everything we have learned throughout our many lifetimes. A true teacher never stops learning and is always open to being questioned and offered a fresh perspective on life, and this is the attitude that you must take on board when 9’s energy is expressed. Although the Hermit has reached the top of the mountain and has attained wisdom, s/he is shining the lamp of wisdom to seek out further learning experiences, the spiral of 9’s path never stops growing and moving.
Notice how similar the words REVOLVE and EVOLVE are, suggesting that to evolve we must revolve around a cycle of expanding awareness which is in fact, a spiral. And of course, the word LOVE appears in both words. So to evolve we must revolve love, move it, give it out freely with no conditions at all, attached. This generates a spiral of expansion that increases energy. The spiral and the energy of the 9 is the form and function of EVOLUTION. And guess what? The word EVOLVE adds up to 27/9, and the word REVOLVE adds up to 36/9! And 36/9 is at the core of the magic of the triplicate numbers we keep seeing, as mentioned in my 9.9.9 TRIPLICATE NUMBERS blog! By studying Numerology we are witness to this unifying field of divine, cosmic intelligence, weaving its way through our daily experience of life!
The 9 pointed star is a geometric archetype created from 3 inter-locking triangles, it is 3 x 3 , the Holy Trinity multiplied by itself, such is the immense force of LIGHT unleashed by this energy! The Triangle is the root of all materialisation, it is the Mother Membrane through which all other forms emerge, and with 9 we have this immense power tripled, the creative ideas and intents we can give birth to today can dramatically expand our awareness of who we really are: Light-beings created from light, reflecting light and love to creation unconditionally.

But back to LOVE. It’s what makes the world go round, and unconditional love is embodied in the 9’s sense of idealism and empathy: 9 is a perfectionist because it is at the top of the range in the single digit series. So it strives to live the perfect life, defined by its high ideals. The highest ideal of all is Unconditional Love, which is the foundation stone of all the teachings of light. All these teachings revolve around the cyclical/spiral energy of unconditional love, which evolves life in all dimensions.
9’s vibration enables us to spread and multiply the light but in so doing we must be willing to sometimes sacrifice personal needs for others. 9 teaches the lesson of forgiveness, that through forgiveness, we can let go of attachments that create conditional giving and pave the way towards unconditional love. Detachment is the key: only by having no attachments can we begin to tap into the realms of unconditional love, so 9 plays the role of the observer, taking a step away from the emotional self, and the world of reactionary communication, and watching the emotions from a detached perspective. This is not an easy journey, 9 faces sorrows and upsets through-out the cycles of life, and many life-times, but these experiences temper us with a great deal of empathy and wisdom, which can ultimately give us the courage to strive on.
Forgiveness is LETTING GO of the resentment, the pain, the anger of past deeds. Who do these energies harm? The self. Let go and have no attachments is what the Buddha taught, and then all suffering will cease, this we are shown in the previous vibration in the single-digits, number 8. One cycle will end, but then another will begin, such is the form and the function of the spiral, and the expression of 9’s energy.
With 9 as the perfectionist vibration pushing us onwards and upwards, often as soon as we have overcome one obstacle, or another initiation (often by fire through the solar/trinity energy!), another will present itself. The higher you evolve, the more tests you will meet, but these tests and obstacles will ultimately empower you further, and through your example, other people will also be inspired to reach for the stars, and bring the harmony, peace and balance of the spiritual realms down to earth: this is 9’s message.
An aspect of warning with the 9, though is this: 9’s energy instills very high ideals which can result in disappointment when those expectations prove to be a little too optimistic and ambitious. With 9, often these frustrations and disappointments can be directed at the self; and can cause us to be far too self-critical. But the 9 teaches us that it takes time to unfold perfection, especially on the dense plane of 3D reality. Patience is something that 9 encourages us to take on board.

When one cycle ends there is time for reflection, assimilation and processing before embarking on the new arc of the spiral, so take heed of the Hermit, today, and if you can, retreat away for a while to take stock of where you have been, what you have learnt, and where you are going. Use you wisdom and be clear with yourself. What are you still holding onto, what is holding you back? Now, you can really detach from the emotionalism of the situation and observe your feelings before blindly reacting to them. Self-analysis is called for here, but not rabid self-criticism! 9 is urging you to let go of all attachments and face the future with no expectations, therefore putting an end to disappointments. You may need to stop “trying” so hard, don’t be too critical about your achievements, the projects the 9 takes on board are always epic in their scale and at times seem unobtainable.
However, the biggest challenge of all is obtainable through the 9: being the embodiment of unconditional love, the altruistic humanitarian who wants to help humanity and indeed all creatures to live a life free from suffering. Understanding, patience and compassion all join together in an expression of empathy, and these themes are amplified for you now. Your wisdom, help, and experience is valued and needed, accept this duty with humility, and shine like a light in the darkness, illuminating the path for others to follow.
With the full date vibration being 27/9, we also have the 7 and 9 working together today, and both 7 and 9 govern cycles of time and therefore evolution. The 7 is aligned with the Moon, and the 7 day a week, 4 weeks a month time cycles, with the lunar phases evolving over a 28 day period. The moon represents the feminine, receptive side of our natures. The 9 is aligned with the Sun, and the larger cycles of time that govern the changing seasons and the Solar year. The Sun represents the male, expressive side of our natures. So, with 27/9, you have a balance (2) between the Moon (7) and the Sun (9), and it is your mission today to strike and maintain a balance between your receptive ability and your expressive ability.
The 27th card in the Tarot is the Ace of Wands, and represents the element of FIRE, (Light), and all fire signs, Aries, Leo and Sagittarius, are grouped under this card. Amazingly, the Ace is like the n umber 1, it moves from the 9, to the 10/1 if you like, after 9 comes 10, which is 1, which is new beginnings, initiations and inspiration! And this energy expresses the 10/1 month of October, when we can begin to move into these new directions, and October is a pre-cursor to the 10/1 year that 2017 gives us, a year where we can begin again, we can be reborn.
The wand represents divine intent, the first thought-form that moved out from the void and began the process of reflection/materialisation. Inspiration, initiation, and crystal-clear intuition are the energies offered to us today, and you can go forth with absolute confidence today, the time to act is now! The expressive fire power comes through strongly with 27/9, and you will be compelled to share your visions with the rest of us. In fact presenting your work is a great idea under the 27/9, showing any kind of creative enterprise will be well rewarded. Shining your light will reflect back to you warmth, success and abundance.
Go forth and SHINE today with your UNIQUE light and celebrate life, this gift of consciousness we are given! Much LOVE to all! 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.
