Any time a Master Number is prominent, energies are intensified. 2009 promises to be momentous, not just each individual, but for everyone in the world who lives by the modern calendar.
11 is the number of the Vision, Visionary or Spiritual Messenger. The number 1 by itself represents leadership and intuition, so the number 11 is two 1's - it is a partnership of leadership and drive that is unlike any other. 11 carries a very intuitive and spiritually charged energy. This is a year to act on your intuition and wisdom, and to step into (or more into) a leadership position. 2009 is being powered by visionary & humanitarian principles of change. Change for the greater good of all.
Astrologically, the Number (11) is associated with the Planet Uranus, known as "The Great Awakener". It’s the sudden flash of light that exposes the things that have been hidden and kept secret. We’ve certainly been seeing a lot of that in the world. In your individual life this light exposes those parts of your self that you have suppressed, your personal shadow energies. These judged and rejected energies need to be received back with love.
By the way the word light adds up to 11!

3+9+7+8+2 = 29 (2+9 = 11)
Another by the way, 29/11/2 is President Elect Barack Obama’s Destiny/Life Path Number (numbers of birthday added up). He was born on 8/4/1961. 8+4+1+9+6+1=29. How cool is that!
All numbers have a higher expression and a lower expression. The higher expression of 11 is intuition, vision, spiritual communication, rapid or sudden transformation, insight, humanitarianism and balanced leadership. The lower expression of 11 is overwhelm, fear and phobias and rebellion. The challenge this year is to trust and have faith in your self. View everything from the higher vantage point of your Greater Self. It is going to be extra important to maintain contact with people who remind us of our true nature and help us stay in the higher expression of our selves.
Throughout 2009 we will continue to have influence of the Uranus/Saturn opposition that charged up the energy on election day in the US. The last time this aspect occurred was in the 60’s, and you know what happened then! I certainly do as I was living near Berkeley during that time.
This is a year of choice between the old energy/rules of Saturn and the new energy/vision of Uranus. These oppositions will continue through the summer of 2010. It’s a major theme for our time.
Saturn in Virgo affects our guts and digestive systems. Uranus in Pisces amps up the nervous energy in and around us, affecting our endocrine balance and sleep patterns. So many people, myself included have had disrupted sleep and unusual digestion. As the nerves get stimulated you can go into fear, which affects the bowels. Once again, it’s so important to stay out of the fear based mentality and connect with people who understand the new energy and can help you to sustain your higher vantage point.
Another important aspect for 2009 is that Jupiter, the planet of luck, expansion, vision and the search for truth is in electric Aquarius, which is associated with Uranus. Jupiter will stay in this placement throughout the year until the middle of January, 2010. Aquarius energy is about compassion, uniqueness, innovation, far out and futuristic thinking and inventions, and collaboration. So Jupiter’s placement in Aquarius expands the mysteries of innovative, unique, avant-garde, revolutionary experiences designed to maximize the evolution of consciousness.
And Obama has Jupiter in Aquarius in his natal chart too.
The themes for 2009 are to express your unique self, expand your vision and expect the unexpected. Another important theme this year and for the future is community. As I said before, it’s really important for us to connect with our spiritual families, those people who support our expanded vision and remind us of our true nature as a Spiritual Being having a human experience. Western culture has valued self-sufficiency above all else. This has created an environment of competition and isolation. And many Lightworkers have had difficulty receiving, preferring to give. This has left many people in a difficult situation financially. This is changing now, it must. Reach out, take a chance and and join with like minded people to support each other.
