The month of March brings a wave of creativity to the planet, and we can use this creative spark to ignite a new vision of life and increase our vitality. It’s all about how we are managing our energy these days, and March is a time to "reign it in" in regards to maintaining an increased awareness of our well-being.
The number 3 of March represents the themes of the Positive Mind, creativity, nurturing, food, and children. Our very own "inner child" will be craving nurturing and support, so take time out to revel in things that are youthful and playful. Whether you visit a game arcade with a friend, set up a badminton net in the backyard, or invite people over for a rousing card game of Crazy 8’s, find ways to mix it up and lighten up. Number 3 is social energy, and our hearts need to connect with each other and feel joyous again.
Conjuring the joy-love space is important now, as we have a unique line-up consisting of the number 3 for the month, 6 for the year (2022 = 6), and 9 for the Base calculation. The numbers 3,6, and 9 are all of the Fire Element, so things will certainly be heating up on planet Earth!
This heat will be on a physical level (atmospheric temperature), as well as in our emotional response. This translates into a lower flash-point for some people’s tolerance and patience. So, tread lightly if you begin to feel things heating up in someone else’s electromagnetic field, and have a few "diffusing techniques" at the ready in case you need to pivot the situation.
What’s a diffusing technique, you might ask? There are many, and here is one that I found helpful. Once when I was standing in a long line at a convenience store, a disheveled young man approached the checkout counter. Placing an item on the counter, the man started to argue with the cashier, saying that he had given him a 10 dollar bill for his purchase and he wanted his change back.
The cashier strongly denied receiving 10 dollars from the man, told him to leave, and then the two of them got into a verbal slug-fest that appeared to have no end in sight. Everyone waiting in the line was getting super-aggravated, feet stomping, profane mumblings, a fist slamming the hot food display window. I began to sense that something was about to go terribly wrong.
Instinctively, I walked up to the counter, placed a 5 dollar bill there, and said to the young man, "This is yours, go in peace." The man looked at me, nodded, and then took the money and left.
This is not an "Oh what a good person I am story." It is purely meant as an example of how you can shape-shift a moment and help avoid a situation from escalating. If you would like to see a stellar example of this, watch the 1991 movie Grand Canyon. Yes, the scene at the beginning where the car breaks down. Brilliant.
We are born into this world to be creative, intuitive, and powerful beings who have the ability to elevate ourselves and others. Sometimes through life’s journey, a Soul can become lost or damaged, and they need to find their way back home again. It all starts by nurturing and restoring ourselves, which then creates an abundance that we can wisely share.
The two key words here are “wisely share.” It is important to know that not everything has your name on it, not every situation is meant for you to step in and correct. We will be getting a real education with this in March, as number 9 is in the Base calculation (Base is month of 3 + year of 6 = 9). Number 9 in the positive polarity represents the themes of self-mastery, completion, and subtlety. However, in the negative polarity, it can have a ruthless intensity where someone only sees their side of the situation and is not willing to let go without a fight.
Within the theme of completion, we will be releasing karmic patterns of behavior that have held us captive for years. There is a real opportunity here for personal liberation and setting one’s own self free. It is not always easy to look at what is typically called the “dark side” of family dynamics, and at the same time, you can’t let go of what you are not willing to recognize or acknowledge.
Yes, we could use a little help with all of this, so I am going to recommend the Pulse Meditation. This meditation is said to "allow you to control your reaction to any situation, and can bring sweetness and one-pointedness to the most scattered mind." Well, we could all use a little bit of that on a rainy day! The extra good news is that this is a meditation that is easy for children and can help with hyperactive behavior.
Further exploring the dimensions of the number 9 for this month, it is important to note that many karmic cycles of oppression and intolerance are completing themselves, and this is largely being played out in the scope of global politics. Praying for peace and justice is important now, as we all would like to have a safe world in which to raise our children.
At the end of the day, we all live in our own hearts, minds, and homes. The nurturing of our spirit is the most effective way to elevate ourselves and the surrounding environments.
Let yourself navigate this time with the awareness of where you can effectively step into a situation for conscious good and change, and where you know that it is best not to lose your grace.
We all have a place in this world, and by sitting at the table with our spiritual help-mates we can create a higher sense of purpose that will carry us through this time and space.
The number 6 of 2022 aligns us with this vision, granting us the earthly and Heavenly support we need to hear the beckoning and whispers of our better Angels. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.
