Welcome once again to November 11, an auspicious day for those who are numerologically inclined.
The 11 is often viewed as a special number supportive of love, partnerships, and also holds the power of masterful manifesting energy.
In 2011 (11/11/11), WeddingChannel.com estimated that 24,900 couples got married on that day. As a point of reference, the average total weddings on a Friday in November, 2011 hovered around 1,700.
And here we are, now in 2021, revisiting 11/11.
Why does this date capture people’s attention?
In numerology, the 11 is a Master Number.
Master Numbers are repeating numbers (11, 22, 33, and so on). Master Numbers contain a higher spiritual energy, for lack of a better term. A Master Number is a highly charged frequency made of energy that brings specific opportunities to us when it shows up.
So what’s the 11 all about?
First of all, the number 1 is all about new beginnings, independence, initiative, achievement, individuation, self-confidence, and innovative creativity. So when you see this repeating number—a double number one—remind yourself to focus on what you want in your life rather than what you don’t want.
The energy of the number 1 expands what we’re focused on. It’s like dousing lighter fluid onto smoldering embers and then tossing a lit match to ignite the fire.
As for the date 11/11, this can be seen as an opening—a doorway. If you look at the numbers, you can see this visual representation —since each 11 actually looks like a door. The two doors can be seen as an intersection between the physical world and the spiritual world.
And so, on this especially important 11/11, make sure to focus your thoughts, think of the bigger picture, and see what opportunities are opening up to you.
Numerology was developed around 530 b.c.e. by Pythagoras, a Greek mathematician, philosopher, and mystic—remember the Pythagorean Theorem of Geometry? Same guy. Pythagoras suggests that each number not only represents a quantity (for instance, one apple, two apples, and so on), it also carries a vibration and a frequency that has a particular meaning and influence.
Much like gravity or the mystery of cell phone reception, we don’t have to understand how it affects us or even to believe in it for it to operate. It’s rather like Morse Code. To the untrained, hearing the random dots and dashes of Morse Code just seems like random or garbled sounds. Yet to those trained in the language of Morse Code, the dots and dashes communicate very specific information.
You just have to know the language to understand it.
It’s the same with numerology. Once you learn the defining qualities of the numbers 1-9—along with some additional “code”—you can understand the message and information that the numbers carry with them whenever they show up.
