The Number Eleven:
This correlates to the Planet Pluto, the color of black, the sign of Scorpio, the Scorpion and Eagle, the eighth house, and the letters K, & V. (V is a 22) 11x2 -- NATURALIST/CHTHONIAN - Pluto/Mars
The Number Eleven - Transforming cycles and Endings.
Dig below the surface, research and intensity.
Eleven is the number of transformation and intensity. It is called a master number. There are two other master numbers 22 & 33. However they are not that different from a four or a six combined with an eleven.
To understand them it is necessary to understand the number eleven first. Just like the number 9 represents the color of white light, eleven represents the color of black or no light. Often enlightenment comes as a result of hardship. Numerologists have said that eleven is the enlightenment number. I believe the Numerologist 11 is more like the Uranus energy of white light. In giving the number 11 the meaning of light numerologists have lost or forgotten what Astrologers have always known. Scorpio has always been connected to darkness. Darkness is the absence of light. So eleven is a master number in that it covers both light and darkness when it is connected to the other numbers.
Eleven walks a fine line between greatness and self-destruction. The environment of Scorpio is a difficult archetype to experience. It is the side of the number eleven that most of us would rather never experience. However life is not like that and it requires us to take our light (Uranus) and enter into the darkness (Pluto). In this way we can know how much light we really have. We are on earth to experience the good and the bad. We are to make lemonade out of the lemons we get in life. This is a lot like the number eleven.
Notice also that an eleven when reduced turns into a two and a two is a humble supportive number. It is not strong and powerful like the one. Yet it is made up of two ones, so the energy of the one is strong also. (Mars is the co-ruler of Pluto.) When a tragedy strikes it often humbles us. That tragedy brings depression sadness and pain. We often grow as a result of this adversity and tragedy. We are to transform and change and go with the ending. We are to use our light as a flashlight in the darkness of our lives. This is easier said than done. I myself have had a lifetime of adversity. I was born on the 11th of April. I can relate to this number well. However I never really loved the number while it’s energy was working on me. It is only after the dust had settled and the black clouds had dispersed that any good could be seen.
This sign in Astrology is the sign of Scorpio. The phoenix that rises from its own ashes is the archetype of this sign. It is death and resurrection. No one likes the dying part. However the resurrection will be blissful. When our bodies are resurrected we will be very happy. These will be bodies that will never get tired or sick. You will be able to eat when you want. That sounds very tempting, however I’m in no hurry to get one of these bodies, as I would need to die first. The description of the number 11 in Numerology books is overdone. When reading these descriptions it makes a person envious to be an eleven. It is the master number you know. We all want to be the master. However the number comes with a price. That price is the descent into hell before one can rise to the heavens. Traditional Numerology gives nine the ending label. I believe it is close to an end, but it is not the end. Pluto is the last of the planets. I believe it is final ending energy and because of this I feel very confident in saying that there will be no more planets found in our Solar system. There may be more planets found in our Galaxy but not in our solar system. The reason for this comes from the knowledge that eleven represents endings. The ancient astrologers often gave some of the archetypes of Pluto to Saturn. Saturn may be sobering but Pluto is final.
The number of eleven is the number of darkness, however because it is a master number it also represents the light. I know this sound confusing as light is light and darkness is darkness. However after deep analyses I have concluded that this number can go either way. Uranus the planet of light can become darkness as well. So if you have a lot of Scorpio in your chart, Sun, moon, mars, or rising sign it is not necessarily all bad or darkness. By the same token not all Aquarius people are saints either.
As an eleven you are you are extremely sensitive and powerful at the same time. Others notice your presence without your even trying, or being aware of it. You have a certain magnetism to you that others notice right away. You like your privacy and some people think you are too secretive. You also make a lot of your decisions based on your gut reaction and feelings. As an eleven you have the gift of healing and regeneration. This you do for both yourself and others. A key word for you is dig; you always get beneath the surface and are good at research and seeking. You would make a good detective. You may also be interested in Psychology or any subject that requires deep thought and getting to the bottom of something.
The positive 11 - dig bellow the surface, understands patterns and cycles, is a trend spotter, good at research, is a healer, is a good manager of resources.
The negative 11 - depressed, destructive, dark, evil, forceful, death, hell, terrorists, elimination. Over sexed and pain.
The Planet Pluto- A Water Planet and the color of black.
The Greeks gave the name of Hades to this god of the underworld. He was the brother of Jupiter and Neptune. I believe that there are bad sides to all the Planets as well. Neptune is often made out to be a pleasant planet but it can have its dark side too, drugs and alcohol are not necessarily pleasant. However no planet has a darker side than Pluto. On the other hand no other planet has the power to transform a person like the planet Pluto either. The road to transformation and change is straight through hell. Saturn may be an earthquake, Uranus may be lightning or a Tornado, Neptune may be a hurricane or a Tidal wave but Pluto is a nuclear explosion!!!
Pluto is dignified in Scorpio and is detriment is Taurus, I believe it is exalted in Virgo and has it’s fall in Pisces. The terrorist acts (Pluto) occurred on Sept 11 (Virgo). Pluto is dignified in Scorpio. No other sign gets as bad a rap as Scorpio. It is a double sign. It is the Scorpion and the Eagle. The Scorpion the darker side and the eagle the higher self. Scorpio walks the tight rope of greatness and destruction. This is the same for the number eleven. The name of Lucifer adds to 11 and so does the name of Jesus. One is a God and the other is a devil. Elevens and Scorpio’s have to be very careful about the decisions they make in life for they tend to be very intense. Pluto is in its detriment in the sign of Taurus. (Power authority and new money)
The 8th house shows how we combine our talents with those of others. Big established companies and powerful institutions and old money, banks etc are represented through the eighth house. New money is related to Taurus. If the business was inherited or has been around for generations it is Scorpio. Pluto is a planet of power and it is easy to see how power is exalted in old money. Old power is opposed to new power, hence the detriment in Taurus. Pluto is exalted in Virgo. It has its fall in Pisces. Virgo is a sign ruled by Mercury, which has to do with the logical mind. Pluto rules Scorpio, which likes to dig and get below the surface on all subjects. When digging and researching it is important to be aware of all the detail that is involved. Scorpio is related to regeneration and healing. Virgo is related to health and service. I believe that Scorpio would feel comfortable in this sign hence the exaltation. Pluto has its fall in Pisces. Pluto is about power and the sign of Pisces is about giving up power. It does not try to influence it goes with the flow. Pluto is about inheritances and Pisces is about not needing any earthly goods. I believe Pluto would feel very uncomfortable in this sign.
Pluto takes about 248 years to travel through all twelve signs. Since its orbit is elliptic rather than circular it travels through the signs unevenly. It speeds up from Leo to Capricorn. It passes the fastest through it’s own sign of Scorpio. (It takes 11 years.) It slows down from Aquarius to Cancer. Its longest time is 33 years or so. That is when it is furthest from the sun. In the sign of Scorpio Pluto is closest to the sun. Pluto is the final time clock of God. Uranus may show trends (seven years) and Neptune may show extended periods of time where things are slowly dissolved (fourteen years), but Pluto shows generations. (11-33 years).
Pluto is represented through the color of black. Since it is the planet furthest from the sun it receives the smallest amount of light of all the planets. It is interesting that it is dignified in Scorpio. This is the time when its orbit is closest to the sun. Black is the absence of color. It is as void as a vacuum. As such it is the color we fear the most. People who act evil or have an evil spirit or aurora around them are often avoided. Lets face it how many people want to be the friend of Hitler or some other evil person? This is why it is important to express the enlightened side of Pluto or the eagle. Black represents our mistakes. In order to grow we must remove ourselves from those errors. That is what repentance is all about. It is a process through which we can become clean or white again. The atonement made it possible to discard the parts of ourselves that we are not proud to own and to replace them with characteristics we are proud to have. In this way we become a new creature and change and progress and our old self dies (Pluto) and we are reborn (Mars).
The sign of Scorpio and the Scorpion (Serpent) and the Eagle.
In the Mazzaroth the sign of Scorpio represents an insect that is ready to strike. It represents sin and the darkness that results when the light (Good side of Uranus ) is ignored. It represents the concept of spiritual and temporal or physical death. It also represents repentance offered through the atonement and the new life through good works and the grace of Christ and his atonement. The transformation then brings one into the light and one is brought up from below the depths to be exalted to the sky.
Saturn is the co ruler of Aquarius. Saturn is the planet of exaltation. The scorpion is an insect with vertebrae that lives mostly in arid dry regions. It buries itself under the sand to protect itself from the heat. It is nocturnal (comes out during the nighttime) in nature. It prefers darkness to light. The eagle is a bird, which lives in the tops of cliffs. It soars high above the earth. It is able to see great distances with much accuracy. Once we come out of the darkness we are more like the eagle. A reptile that is similar to the scorpion is the snake. It lives in arid areas as well and is nocturnal. Both the scorpion and the snake are interchanged as archetypes or symbols of the lower side of Scorpio. It is interesting that the symbols for doctors involve the snake. Remember the good side of the number eleven is the healer. As the dark side it brings death.
In the bible there are two places that I know of where the snake brought death. The first is with Eve. She partook of the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. It brought death into the world. After eating the fruit there was a chemical reaction in Adam and Eve’s bodies, which made it possible for them to die. They still got to live about 1000 years but eventually they did die. Now the serpent was subtler than any other wild creature that the LORD God had made. He said to the woman, "Did God say, `you shall not eat of any tree of the garden?" And the woman said to the serpent, "We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden; but God said, `You shall not eat of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, neither shall you touch it, lest you die." [Gen 3:1-3] The serpent allowed Satan’s spirit to enter into it and it was this Lucifer who was cast out of Heaven who tricked Eve. Serpents are also mentioned in the book of Numbers. Then the LORD sent fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the people, so that many people of Israel died. The people were complaining and Jehovah sent poisonous snakes to bite the people. Later after the people repented of their complaining the Lord had Moses tell the people to look at a brass serpent that was put up on a stick. If the people looked they would be healed. Many would not look because they did not believe it would work and consequently died. Those who did look and exercised some faith were healed.
Jehovah wanted to show the Israelites that he was a God of healing as well. He instructed Moses to have this brass serpent created and for the people to look on it. The serpent was placed on a pole. It represented the cross of Christ and his mission as the Savior of the world. And the people spoke against God and against Moses, "Why have you brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? For there is no food and no water, and we loathe this worthless food." Then the LORD sent fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the people, so that many people of Israel died. And the people came to Moses, and said, "We have sinned, for we have spoken against the LORD and against you; pray to the LORD, that he take away the serpents from us." So Moses prayed for the people. And the LORD said to Moses, "Make a fiery serpent, and set it on a pole; and every one who is bitten, when he sees it, shall live." So Moses made a bronze serpent, and set it on a pole; and if a serpent bit any man, he would look at the bronze serpent and live. Num 21:5-9. It is interesting to note that Satan being Christ’s brother (Mormon Doctrine) often copies his older brother in many of the archetypes etc. He uses the serpent for evil not for good. He is often referred to as the Father of lies. Pluto’s power used for evil is unlike the light, which is portrayed through the good side of Uranus or the good side of repentance.
The Eighth house
The eighth house follows the seventh house. It is the second house having to do with relationships. Remember the houses from seven to twelve are relationship houses or areas of life that involve society not just the personal self. It is similar to the second house, which represents personal resources.
In Scorpio these resources are combined and merged. It takes two or more people to create eighth house archetypes. In the seventh houses two people meet and become partners. These partners merge (eighth house) their resources and money. This can be a time of greatness or anger. When used correctly the combined power of the eighth house is greater than the singular power or resources of the second. Used selfishly (Mars is also a secondary ruler of Scorpio.) it brings much hate, greediness and envy. In marriages divorces occur. This is the power of Pluto gone astray. The eighth house is a house of potential tragedy. Remember this is the house of death, taxes and all such unpleasant subjects. A person’s first encounter with death is usually not their own personal death, but someone close to him or her. Often it is a parent or some other close relative, it may even be a child. The point is it is someone close. Only when the ties are close does the pain cause the soul to search for the meaning of life.
The sign of Sagittarius and the ninth house follows the eighth house of death. Jupiter the natural ruler of the ninth, rules religion and the meaning of life. Once a person understands that death is not permanent but only temporal, that person has great hope and a positive attitude. These adjectives describe the positive use of the planet Jupiter or the number five. The eighth house is a house of tragedy. It often takes the combined resources of two or more people to get through the obstacles encountered. This is why it is important that we help and serve each other. For marriages this is the house of counseling, psychology or anything deep and subconscious. On the grand scale of things all of us need Christ to help us overcome the physical and spiritual death this world brings. We cannot do this on our own. It took the power of God to help us overcome death and hell. Remember the man on the horse is shooting the arrow into the heart of the serpent. That hero Jehovah or Christ is, standing over the serpent that is trying to get away, in the fifth house.
The letters K&V
The letter K often has the power of 11, and V has the vibration of the number 22. Sometimes the person emitting this energy is responding to the lesser vibrations of the numbers two and four. In their full power these letters act more like the 11 and 22. The letters K and V will have a lot of the eleven characteristics. These characteristics are similar to the actual serpent or scorpion or eagle, as well as the sign of Scorpio, or the number 11. If you skipped ahead please read the description of A, J & S in the number1 to understand how to use the letters in the alphabet.
