1111 ~ Just the Beginning

As if 11-11 isn’t enough, we’ve got a 19 degree Scorpio New Moon,  Diwali, and Veteran’s Day. There is a lot going on, that’s for sure. To top it all off, my birthday week is still in motion.

That is a picture of my birthday cake taken by a friend. It has 1 candle so it works well with the 11 – 11 theme. As a gift to me and you, I am going to disclose my age. Some of you may know this already, but I turned 55! For so long, I have hidden certain facts about myself from myself. In other words, I don’t feel middle-aged inside ( most of the time), so I tell myself I cannot be my given age. I have posted before on aging and I still have work to do on acceptance. The first step is to stop tiptoeing around this subject. So I am 55, woohoo!

Besides, the age fits in so well with this post, so why not take the plunge? As I have mentioned before, becoming old enough to retire has been a tough pill to swallow. Let me explain further. When I joined city government, I had just turned 27. My birthday was on a Friday 11-6-87. Just 2 days earlier, on Wednesday 11-4-87, I met a man who was to become one of the major loves of my lifetime ( and probably other lifetimes.) On Monday 11-9-87 I started my first day of work and many of my coworkers were much older. They talked daily about reaching age 55. Then they could retire and take a full pension. Try as I might, I had a difficult time picturing myself at age 55. Guess what, I still do. But back then this age became a symbol of the end of the road. During the 18 years of my employment with the City,  I continued to hear about turning 55.

Now I am here. So what’s next?

Lots of synchronicity and a few more 5’s.

I find it fascinating that on the year I turn 55, all the days of the week line up just like they did in 1987. I thought that this would happen every 7 years, but it doesn’t due to leap years. I have been thinking of that 27th year quite a bit lately as I have anticipated this birthday. An unusual synchronicity capped it all off nicely: I was watching the docuseries Vice on Monday. It was a special segment on mass incarceration and the war on drugs. I highly recommend it if you want to learn more about how non violent offenders fare under the current system. Most of the episode takes place in a Oklahoma federal institution. Towards the end of the segment, they switch the focus to Philadelphia. All of a sudden I see a still shot of my old office from 1987. So on Monday 11-9-15, I am viewing my old office building exactly 28 years after I started working there, Monday 11-9-87. Why a show about prisons would be doing a feature on my city office building is strange indeed. What is super strange is the day I decide to watch it. The episode is old. But I rather randomly tuned in on Monday.

Yet if you have been reading this blog for a while, you understand. I set this in motion with my thoughts and the Universe delivered it to me in an unimaginable way.

So how about more fives?

Yesterday I reached level 55 on Farmville 2. That’s when I decided I would come clean about my age. This was after I kept noticing the $5.55 pizza sign at the local 7-Eleven ( 7-11 ) . So many numbers!

5 is ruled by Mercury and has to do with change and new beginnings. Effective today Saturn is transiting exactly conjunct my Midheaven. Guess what degree? 5 degrees Sagittarius. This is a humongous transit, a milestone that occurs once ever 29 years or so signifying the pinnacle of one’s calling coming into manifestation. To quote my blogger pal Amanda, I wonder if I am failing this transit.

But I digress and I will leave that thought for another time. Perhaps I should just leave it altogether.

Another synchronicity is that I changed my challenge post at the last-minute to one about the Grateful Dead. I mentioned in the post that a new incarnation has formed with John Mayer called Dead & Company. At the time I know they were playing on the East Coast. They were in Philly on 11-5-15 and DC on 11-6-15. On 11-7-15 they were back in NYC for a free show. Later that day ( still technically my solar return), I discovered a free livestream concert was available to anyone with wi-fi. So here I am watching a free Dead concert from my couch. Talk about manifesting out of the ethers!

One more 5 fact before I go, my sun is on the 5th house cusp for this year’s solar return. Change is on the way!

Happy 11-11 New Scorpio Moon! If I keep seeing 11s and 5s , they combine to 6s and 6 = love.  Wishing you love and lite on this lovely double Scorpio evening.

  6. Walking My Path: Mindful Wanderings in Nature

    Interesting synchronicities! I have a 5 Life Path. It has been an interesting life full of constant change. I’m not necessarily a fan of change during and leading up to it, but always looking back they are good. It’s just hard letting go of the old to fully embrace change. 55! A lot changed for me at 55! I hope it is a great year of change in only good ways for you!
    Birthday Blessings,
    Mary

    1. Thank you Mary for always commenting and showing interest about my journey. I am not a fan of unsettling change, that’s for sure. I have had my share. I am visualizing joyful change and manifestation that surpasses my limited dreams. Often synchronicities show me that life is so much more than I know. This is a large focus of my blog.

      Thanks for your kindness. peace, Linda

  7. Belated Happy Birthday wishes Linda. In Universal terms we are ageless but I must say 55 sounds pretty young to me (soon to turn 68)! I really do buy into “you’re only as old as you feel!”

    When Oprah turned 60 she announced it to the world and encouraged women to get over the ageing thing and be proud of the years of experience behind them.I couldn’t agree more.

    1. Hi Bev,
      Thanks for the words of wisdom. Hearing from those older than me widen my perspective. Oprah sure looks good, but she has a few more resources than I do,lol! I do like how she does not hide from her age and speaks often about the positive aspects of moving through time.

      peace and light, Linda

  8. Happy Birthday week! Love all the synchronicites with the 5’s and 1’s. Especially love your old office appearing on that tv show! This Scorpio new moon was uber powerful that’s for sure..a bizarre day for me, still feeling the effects. Have a wonderful weekend! Aleya

    1. Hi Aleya,

      Thanks for the kind wishes. My post turned out to be more about 5;s than 1s as it turned out. I guess I let my attention turn to the Universe showcasing 5s for me. I have recently noticed how November 11th is revered as a holiday for lightworkers. I had not taken the time to truly celebrate in any way. I think I was more effected by the new moon. I felt this calming strong silence that defies description.

      Have a great weekend. Tonite I am celebrating with my family.

      xo Linda

  9. Happy Birthday, birth week, solar return and new year, Linda. The cake looks as elegant and beautiful and delicious as one’s birthday cake should do! Wishing you many blessings and a whole lot of joy this coming year (and perhaps that great love you mused about in an early, not-too-long-ago post). xoxo Jamie

    1. Hi Jamie,
      Yes, the cake was yummy and oozed out hot chocolate goodness. Thank you for the birthday blessings. The solar return chart looks much better than last years. As far the great love, who knows?

  10. Happy birthday, Linda!
    Thanks for sharing the synchronicities with us. Amazing!
    A transit which signifies the pinnacle of your calling coming into manifestation sounds good. I have no clue whether and why it should be possible to fail a transit ( and I am wondering whether it is like failing to catch a train? Once the transit is gone, you have no chance to ever get to your destination??) . But I hope you put on your wings and fly to the next transit train and catch everything in time.
    When so many numbers 5 show up that sounds like something will change soon.
    Hugs

    1. Hi Karin.
      Yes it has been a barrage of 5s. I have weathered so many unsettling changes. It is definitely time for the enjoyable liberating changes to appear.

      The transit ( I like the train reference) is quite a milestone and for me coincides with my 55 birthday. It can happen at any age and repeats at a 29 year cycle. My first one was in my 20s and I hardly noticed it. I have been anticipating this one for some time now. I do not see the fruits of my labor bearing fruit at this time. But anything can happen. You cannot fail a transit, but with Saturn you can feel like a failure sometimes. Perhaps this milestone has to do with my confidence as a writer.

      hugs, Linda
