Happy New Year, How is your inner dragon doing?
They say if you want to attract clients, to reconsider whether or not to do things on a day with a 9 in it. Why? Because, in Soul Contract, the 9 is the DRAGON. The 9 is intimidating. The 9 is power. The 9 is no more bullsh*t, lets blast through your karma and get you on your way. And the 9 makes people very uncomfortable, unless they are willing to gun it and invest a lot in themselves, or in you, to get to where they are meant to be.
So, how is your inner dragon doing?

The reason I am breaking this cardinal rule on the 9th of the 9th 2018, is because it is the 9th of the 9th, 2018.
9 + 9 = 18.
Here are the Soul Contract images that correspond to the 18 and the 9, respectively:
You can see that the 9 is the steely dragon, and the 18 is about making the decision to follow Spirit in this lifetime, or not.
So, what are you going to do? Are you going to follow Spirit? Are you going to follow your heart? Are you going to engage in your life lessons? And be yourself, no matter what others may say? And really align with Your Life Plan this time around?
Or, are you going to lie on your death bed in regret?
There is a common story shared by Wayne Dyer about the man who lies on his death bed and his dying words were: What if I did it all wrong?
I hope you don't want that to be you?
Here is another image that represents the 18 (the Emperor in the Tarot):
I am not a Tarot reader, but I know a great one, here.
From my understanding, the Soul Contract perspective on the 18 (Emperor) is someone who makes a lot of final decisions, or not. Maybe he procrastinates, maybe he doesn't decide, maybe he regrets some of the decisions he made in a past life (or earlier in this life). Maybe this has paralyzed him a little. Maybe he is afraid to make the wrong decisions, so he procrastinates and gets little done.
Is this you? I hope not. And if it is, I invite you to ask your dragon to put fire back in your belly.
From an Astrological perspective, Mars is known as a warrior planet. I locked my Mars in the sign of Cancer (its fall) in the 4th house (at the bottom) of my natal astrology chart.
Warriors don't really like to be put in a cage. Photo credit: here.
Mars does not like to be trapped in a timid shell, hiding away, trying to play it safe. Mars isn't just the warrior, he is about action and courage and going for what you want. You have to let your Mars out of its shell, some of the time. Go for what you want. Or you will end up with insomnia and illness and regret.
My Mars is strong, and in this life, I was probably scared, so I locked her away. But she can come out, as I learn to work with my power, in a responsible way. How about you?
Now, lets move on to the next piece of this puzzle. When 2018 began a lot of numerologist were gaga over it being an 11 year (2+0+1+8 = 11). Notice the last two digits = 18, again!!! And if you look at this date 9/9/2018 ... isn't it just a 2 surrounded by 9s and 18s, in fact there are more dragons (9s) than paralyzed Emperors (18), but if you let your dragons fight each other instead of working together maybe you end up with 9+9 = 18, and 18 on both sides, yuck. Double paralyzed to make decisions.... Or maybe you MAKE THE DECISION TO FOLLOW SPIRIT and follow Your Life Plan in this lifetime!!! Haha *wink*. I laugh because I am having fun, I know most people will not listen, and those who might, well, lets get on with it :)
So, the 11, remember 2+0+1+8 = 11. And 1+1 = 2. Also, take the full date: 9+9+2+0+1+8 = 29, 2+9 = 11. Because add 9 to anything, reduce it, and you get the same number! The dragon is like that, you can't run, it will put the same lesson right in your face. Smile.
Here is the image for the 11 and 2, respectively:
The 11 is the lesson of "death to life". A lot of people flip this around to the lesson of "life to death" or valuing life, because if you have 11-2s in your Soul Contract, among many things, you are likely to experience loss - death of a loved one, personal near death experiences etc. This is for a few reasons. First, the 11 is a geometric shape that builds and shatters. It shatters (after a death or near death experience, or other loss) because this is how you grow. You need to shatter your current beliefs about the world in order to build new beliefs. The 11 is a builder. What does he believe? What do you believe?
Often, people with 11s in their Soul Contract will appear to have learning disabilities, because they take a long time to figure out their own truth. Its a slow build. And sometimes, because we live in a rush-rush society, they depend on others because depending on others gets the job done a lot faster than figuring it out for yourself.
So, the 11 is a crutch. And here we come to "death to life". When you lean on others, when you absorb their baggage, when you get into symbiotic relationships, well, eventually that is like death of who you really are, and eventually that shatters and you need to find your true self again.
Loss is a gift. As weird as that sounds. When you lose what you have been leaning on, you grow.
And finally the 2. The lesson of "foolishness to wisdom". Foolish when we make decisions without waiting to see the whole picture, from all angles, high and low (its a spring). The 2 is also very sensitive and can get paralyzed by shock. The spring gets stuck, and the person becomes very inflexible. They can not flow with life.
Have you become rigid and inflexible, or can you Flow with life?
How can you learn to Flow with life (2)?
Well, my tagline does say: "Know yourself Know your kids Flow with life"...
The systems for understanding yourself, your kids, your life, and your lessons, so you can be kind to yourself, when you finally decide to Follow Spirit (18) and let your Dragon out to (9) Build what you believe (11), I am here.
And if you needed one more sign:
Definition from wikipedia.
Happy Rosh Hashanah, Happy Jewish New Year. Which runs from TODAY (9/9/2018) to the 11th! There are those numbers again. 9, 18, 11, 2. Its a sign, is it not?
Wishing you the best on your path and in the decisions you make! Please do not ask others to make your decisions for you, that is precisely how we give our power away and hurt our own inner dragon.
And, when it comes to decisions, knowing your Human Design, sure does help!
If your "perfect sky is torn", if "illusion never changed into something real", celebrate that! It is through the torn sky that you see your truth. Life ain't over yet! Don't "run out of faith", and if you do, that is just part of the journey!

Natalie Imbruglia - Torn
OMG - did you notice, her shirt in the video above even has a dragon on it! This song randomly played for me this morning as I was getting dressed before putting the final touches on this article.
Universe, honestly, you send the best confirmation messages. Thank you!
