With #Twins, one is always more open than the other. You are mirror reflections of each other, not identical--the same, but with opposite strengths. Like fire and water, both life giving yet both can take life away. Equally powerful, yet opposite. For example, a #Twin born under #Leo will be connected and intuitive (it's one of the most intuitive signs, next to #Pisces), but depending on the positions of the planets on the day that Leo was born, there may be a realism streak that questions her otherwise intuitive soul. And, if her twin is a Pisces (which would only work if both had fiery Venus signs...literal twin flames), he may be too bogged down in emotions connected to negative attachments to tap into the "reality" of his #TwinFlame journey, despite Pisces being one of the most clairvoyant signs in the Zodiac.
How does Astrology fit in with Numerology?
Knowing more about the cosmic positions of the planets is never a bad thing. Like the Moon moving the ocean with the tides, all physical beings (adult humans are compromised of 70% water) are just as affected by what happens in the heavens. Astrology is also a part of every culture, every theology, every millennium in recorded human history. If you believe there is a watch maker, how can you then not recognize the gears of the watch??? There is more to the physical world than just the human body. Though we tend to think of ourselves as islands in postmodern society, we aren't. It is more like a web of humanity, each of us an individual strand, but interconnected. You can feel it when the web is disturbed, no matter where your strand happens to be within the greater structure.
The caveat with Astrology is that there are a great deal of unreliable websites and other sources out there. Astrology is actually based on the science of Astronomy. You have to know the positions of each of the planets in our Solar System, even the precise distance in degrees of planetary positioning. Pop culture images of Professor Trelawney from the world of Harry Potter come to my mind with the "divining arts," but there is hardcore math behind the real deal. You have to be accurate on the minutest of details, like the time of day a planet may enters a certain constellation.
When on a #TwinFlame journey, if you aren't looking at viable sources of information, you'll find the wrong information. And, let's face it, that will not help guide you to your #TwinFlame. Like all misinformation, it's designed to distract you. Test your commitment. Challenge your certainty. That's not hard to do when separated from your #Twin. It's easy to get discouraged. But with thorough research and solid mathematics, you can use tools like Astronomy, Astrology, Numerology, Algebra, and even Geometry to help guide your #Twin journey.
Let's use our Pisces and Leo #Twins as an example, the same set of #Twins used in the blog piece written last month (see #Twins in the February 2016 archives). We will use the same birth dates, too. Our Pisces #Twin born on February 24, 1983 had Venus in Aries. Venus entered Aries two days earlier that year. But Mars entered Aries sometime on February 24th. Some Astrology sources don't account for this. But it is a very important detail. Especially for #Twins.
Our Leo #Twin born on July 31, 1971 has Venus entering Leo on July 31st. Her time of birth is a factor. For our July #Twin, she was born mere hours after Venus entered Leo. But some astrology websites don't account for the time Venus entered Leo on the 31st and simply claim that day as Venus in Cancer. Venus in Cancer and Venus in Aries are not a good match. But Venus in Leo and Venus in Aries are cosmic #TwinFlames. Our July #Twin was also born with Mars in Aquarius. The February #Twin's Mars in Aries is considered a perfect match...like two peas in a pod. Or, as one source called it, "a cosmic Bonnie and Clyde."
The July #Twin is an 11:11, as is the February #Twin, perfectly mirroring each other's numbers both in simple math as well as geometrically (see #Twins in February archives for specifics). The math for each other birthdates forms two triangles, one upside down; the other right side up. When you overlay them, you have a six-pointed star. That geometry is repeating in the cosmos right now. There is also a connection to the February #Twin's soul number, "6." But we'll get to that in a little bit....
Both twins ultimately add up to 29 (2+9=11). And both #Twins share the same Life path number (2), as well as the same Destiny number (9). A Life Path number is derived from your birthdate, but a Destiny number matching up is a bit harder. It has to do with your birth names, first, middle and last. #TwinFlames will likely have the same Life Path and Destiny, because they belong to each other. But Soul numbers are more apt to be mirror reflections.
Our example #Twins's Soul numbers are not the same, but they are geometric reflections of each other. The July #Twin has a soul number of "4"; geometrically, a "4" is a cross. It should be noted here that the February #Twin's birthday is 2.24; that's a message to him. If he matches his Life Path with a second "2" (like our July #Twin), the Soul number of his #Twin will be "4." As we know, the Soul number of our July #Twin is, in fact, "4" and her Life Path number is also "2." The February #Twin is a "6"; this number is a geometric Star of David. And you guessed it! The July #Twin was born into the Jewish culture, while the February #Twin was born into one of the Christian faiths. A cross also fits within the six-pointed star.
The example #Twins match up even in their age difference. They are 11 years apart. Their birth dates are mirror reflections adding up to 11:11, their life path and destiny numbers add up to 11:11. Their astrology and numerology match perfectly. They were also both born the year before a leap year. And both born in a year where Jupiter made a triple conjunction with another planet. For our July #Twin, she was born the year Jupiter had a triple conjunction with Neptune. Jupiter and Neptune are the ruling planets for Pisces. For our February #Twin, he is born when Jupiter conjuncts with Uranus. Uranus is connected to Leo's ability to "shine" and is also the ruling planet of Aquarius, cueing our February #Twin to his Leo-Leo-Aquarius match.
Jupiter connects these two #Twins in other ways as well. In terms of Numerology, Jupiter (the expander) makes its historic revolution around the Sun (Leo's ruling planet), every 11.6 years. These #Twins are born 11.6 years apart under the influence of Jupiter making triple conjunctions in their birth years (another 11:11). Jupiter is the 5th planet from the Sun; Neptune is the 8th. Jupiter and Neptune add up to 13; "13" becomes (1+3) or "4," the soul number of the July #Twin. Thirteen is also a mirror reflection of "31," the day the July #Twin was born.
The July #Twin connected with her February #Twin in 2013. October 10th, to be specific. October is represented by the opal. The opal, is a sign of deep, unconditional and pure love--what the #TwinFlame journey is all about. Opals are traditionally exchanged between #Twins who meet in the middle and must separate to clear other attachments. Even the date the two connected is an 11 (1+0=1, 10.10 then becomes an 11).
The year 2013 is a "6" year (2+0+1+3); the February #Twin's soul number is a "6." Those with a soul number of "6" are often stubborn about ending relationships that are not working. It is their karma to break that pattern in this life to move on with their Destiny and Life paths. Destiny paths often open up between ages 34 and 36. Our February #Twin just entered his 34th year. By the way, Jupiter began it's historic journey toward the Sun in October 2013, connecting our #Twins even more.
Years rooted in "3" will be important to the February #Twin (born in '83) in relation to his union with his July #Twin, because the Jupiter (5) conjunct with Uranus (7; 7+5=12) he was born under ultimately simplifies to "3" (12 is 1+2=3). The year 2013, a year ending in "3," is when the February #Twin met his cosmic match; he also turned 30 that year (3+0=3). In February (2) 2016 (2+2+0+1+6), his Life Path and Destiny numbers add up to 11 as he completes his 33rd year and enters his 34th year, marked by a double "3." He and his Twin are both double-numbers in age that represent their Jupiter conjunct between February 25, 2016 and August 1, 2016. The July #Twin's Jupiter conjunct simplifies to "4"; she is 44 for that period (her soul's purpose is doubly illuminated), and the February #Twin's Jupiter conjunct simplifies to "3"; he completed his 33rd year in February 2016 (3+3 is 6; 6 is his soul number). Cosmically, these two have entered an interesting time in their #TwinFlame journey.
That journey included a separation on November (11) 29th (2+9=11), an 11:11 day about 12 months after their initial connection intensified in 2013. The #Twin connected to "12" through Jupiter likely gave something up in 2013 for his #Twin connected to "13," also through Jupiter. As Jupiter made it's revolution around the Sun (beginning in Leo 2014 and ending in Leo 2015), our #Twin connected to "12" with a Soul number of "6" (6+6=12), may have tried to balance the scales by giving up or sacrificing his #Twin a year later. Wouldn't it be even more interesting if this same #Twin was in the 12th year of a previous attachment, the same attachment that caused him to fall out of union with his #Twin??? The 13th year of said attachment will be completed when he is 33, or in the midst of his 34th year on the planet. That is this year.
The addition of the conjuncts involved with this set of #Twins combines to make "7." If you add up their ages from February 1, 2016 through August 1, 2016, you get double sevens. No coincidence, given that 2014 (14 is a double "7") was a year of beginnings and endings for these two.
Numerology can indicate all kinds of important dates for #Twins. If you use accurate Astronomy charts and utilize not just the simple numbers of Numerology, but geometric numbers as well, you'll get a full and complete picture of how you and your #TwinFlame "add up." Want me to blow your minds even more? Add up the first two birth names of you and your #Twin.
For our example #Twins, whose numbers could not be in greater alignment not only on paper but in the 3-D world through geometric numbers as well, AND, through cosmic events particularly connected to Jupiter, their first and middle names (which I cannot reveal here for privacy purposes) both add up to "11." I cannot make this stuff up. In every way imaginable, our example #Twins are an undeniable 11:11.
No matter how you slice it, these two were destined to find one another. And, as far as I know, there is only one source that determines all such destinies. That source is the source of all love and light; it trumps any limits human society can issue. However, even an obvious heavenly mandate does not make the #TwinFlame journey any easier. What the numbers can do is help the two recognize their soul connection in "real" terms, beyond the more nebulous (and therefore, more easily deniable) "feeling" that this person is "right." #Twins can strengthen their resolve with fortifying numerical foundations that "add up"; even the most skeptical of the two would have to give it more than just a passing thought. Coming into common understanding allows all #Twins to move into spiritual alignment more succinctly. This is probably the most important part of any #TwinFlame journey.
The physical world is not the same world in which #Twins create their road map to learn unconditional love and come back to reunion. If you meet your #Twin in the middle, you will have formed other physical attachments. Negative energy always comes with those attachments. #TwinFlame unions foster positive energy, but previous attachments, and the negative energy that goes with them, can and will interfere. In order to overcome the build up of negative energy and resolve previous attachments, #Twins can use things like Numerology to better "see" the road map they created together. Like with the Astrology caveat, though real numbers are absolute, you may not always have the "real" numbers. Having a viable source is paramount. And so is tapping in to #TwinFlame communications.
What you "see" or "hear" when seeking your #Twin through your soul connection may not always be exact either. We often translate things through our own context. But there is a strong case for #TwinFlame telepathy. You can at least get the gist of each other's messages in more awakened #Twins.
You and your #Twin may not add up in quite the same way as my example #Twins, but you should have at least merging numbers. Remember, you meet reflections of your #Twin throughout your lifetime. Their numbers will reflect some part of yours, but it will never add up in quite the same way. These reflections are reminiscent of your #Twin, and can be considered #SoulMates. But it is not the same connection you feel with a #TwinFlame. A #SoulMate helps you learn so you may get closer to unconditional love and, ultimately, find your #TwinFlame.
#Twins know they are connected. But it is sometimes easier to go along with the social expectations of your previous attachments. For a little while anyway. You'll know what to do when the moment arises. The years 2016 and 2017 are a time of great awakening and union for #Twins around the world. Stay open, and you may experience miracles in the next two years!
Try not to despair if you are currently separated from your #TwinFlame. Live your life from a foundation of positive energy and unconditional love. Prepare yourself for reunion by getting your life in order. Stay open to the possibilities. Find joy. And send your #Twin love, happiness, healing, and peace each day; your #Twin will feel it.
The numbers don't lie...people do. People lie to themselves and others when vulnerable. The best way to make yourself less vulnerable (and so more available for the miracle of unconditional love) is by getting your life in order. Clear the negative attachments. Connect to positive energy by educating, finding employment you enjoy, volunteering in your community, and improving your every day life by getting healthier.
Though the #TwinFlame journey may seem magical, it isn't. It requires work. Once you find each other, you open up new doors and begin to evolve. Evolution is a messy process. It's almost like being born all over again. The world will look different. And just like a newborn, it can take a few years before you learn to walk and talk...before you become yourself. Patience is therefore the best number of all when it comes to adding up #TwinFlames. Be patient, kind and compassionate with yourself, and, your #Twin.
Miracles are a numbers game. You only call something a miracle when you beat the odds. You and your #Twin will add up in many ways, but in order to learn and come into union, you will be challenged by the physical world. For our example #Twins, they must add up as succinctly as they do because they also face tremendous obstacles in the physical world.
Our example #Twins have unusual challenges because they are destined to be leaders, healers. Their impact on the planet will be as unquestionable as their #TwinFlame Numerology. Their connection is deep and true; it can never be broken, not even by Death. The two are not like other people. Even amongst #Twins, this pair is exceptional. It is no surprise that their journey is equally extraordinary. But in the end, it will be well worth every effort.
When you most feel like giving up, you know you are closer than you have ever been to reaching your goals. It's always darkest in the night sky right before the dawn. But it's also not a bad time of day to see shooting stars....
The song on the video was in my head this morning when I woke up. I read the lyrics, and it's a good fit for all the #Twins out there. Interestingly, this video came out in 2011....
