Numerology of the Day:
[5+6+2+0+1+6 = 20 = 2+0 = 2]
2 is a number that can go either way. It is the foray into the world of options, so often times important choices must be made that alter the course of one’s life. 2 is a versatile number, so instead of making a hard decision, the 2 suggests embracing multiple realities at once until a mutual solution presents itself. Positively, this could be called consideration. Negatively, this might be seen as deception or duplicity. Could it be both? It could! 2 is full of contradictions like that, and it doesn’t always make logical sense. This could have something to do with 2’s association with the feminine/yin energy, to which irrationality is attributed in this patriarchal society. Along the lines of the feminine force, intuition is probably strongest wherever sensitive 2 is involved.
On one hand, 2 is delicate and impressionable, often yielding to apparently stronger entities. On the other hand, 2 is so fluid that it is unlikely to break, even under the most oppressive circumstances. This number can be quite surprising as it is full of withheld information, evidenced by the bits, pieces and secrets that are revealed when the moment is right. Proof that you always get more than you bargain for when working with a number like this, these carefully metered revelations are indicative of a hidden reserve of alluring depth that is only unveiled to the select few “initiates” who pass the test. It takes a lot to be let inside, so to know 2 is not only to love 2, but to be loved by 2. Care to double the fun?
Speaking of love, the number 2 rules over romantic relationships and other interpersonal involvements, including conflicts. Sharing, exchanges, and all interactions are ruled by 2. Despite emphasis on social refinement and seamless cooperation, 2 can manifest as timidity, and isn’t always conducive to standing in the spotlight. Even so, 2 is such a charming vibration that audiences form regardless of the preference of privacy.
Major Arcana Tarot Correspondence for Taurus:
When strife is overtakes stability, there is always that one constant that can be relied on for those who have been led astray. This could very well be a religious figure who assists in the process of spiritual alignment, but less literally, maybe it’s as simple as a prayer or a ritual that is esteemed for its ability to bring order to all the madness of the world. When times are tough, it is of the utmost importance to know where [and to whom] to turn, for time is of the essence and every man must save himself before its too late.
Before projecting a wholesome superiority onto any old tradition or contracted official, it must be verified. Even the most tried, true, and trusted institution is capable of succumbing to corruption. Is there a hidden agenda, and if so, what is it?
The New Moon is the monthly meeting of the Sun and the Moon in the same sign. This combination makes for a great potency that, when harnessed, encourages anything that is initiated or asked. The best time to set New Moon intentions is the following few days after the aspect is exact, once the dust has settled, but the day of is usually fine too. Warning: avoid setting intentions before the New Moon is exact and/or during the void-of-course moon. [See below for the best times to make your wish.]
