The license plate on my car ends in 000. I have never seen another car with three zeros until this week when I saw four of them. This prompted me to ask, "What's with all the zeros?" I remembered then that I planned on spending some time with the mystical number zero since it's is a big part of the energy of the 10-10-10 Portal. Don't you just love it when you get cosmic reminders?
Zero is everything and nothing. It's the fertile void, a space of infinite potential and yet nothing is manifest. Zero carries the energy of wholeness and completion. There are no sharp points or angles. There is no beginning or end. It is infinite.
In the tarot, zero is the number of the Fool. According to Angeles Arrien in her book The Tarot Handbook, The Fool represents "the principle of courage; state of no fear; ecstasy and peak experience. The Fool is the universal principle that is associated with the state of consciousness that we experience before birth and after death. In life's experience, this state of consciousness is often labeled or experienced as being mystical, transcendent, ecstatic, and transpersonal in its nature."
In numerology when zero is added to a number it magnifies the energy of the other number. What it adds is magical and spiritual. If you have the number ten the zero boosts the one's energy of beginning, independence, leadership and courage. Yet, when you add 1 + 0 you get just 1, as if the 1 hasn't been changed at all. Zero is mysterious because though no letter is associated with the number zero, it still appears when you start to add up the numbers.
Zero is also a portal, a direct link to the cosmic wisdom. It's is an opening to the divine and mystical experience of stillness.
Taoism: It symbolizes the Void; non-being.
Buddhism: It is the Void and no-thingness.
Kabbalism: Boundless; Limitless Light; the Ain.
Pythagoras (an earlier incarnation of Master Kuthumi) saw zero as perfect. Zero is the Monad, the originator and container of All.
Islamic: Zero is the Divine Essence.
On 10-10-10 we have three zeros adding their spiritual magic to the three ones. Zero brings the energy of completion to add to the one's energy of new beginnings. And this brings us to the number ten which has it's own magic. This is the number of new beginnings based on harmonious conclusions to previous activities. I don't know about you, but I'm sure ready for that!
In the Destiny Card System*, which uses playing cards, people who's birth card is a ten (of hearts, clubs, diamonds or spades) have completed their learning in the area represented by the suit and are ready to share their wisdom with others. I know this well, as my birth card is the ten of clubs, the Teacher Card.
I'm quite excited about the potentials that are opening on the 10-10-10 Portal. So many people have told me that they have felt like everything has been taken away and yet nothing new has come in yet. Finally, we get some new energy, new idea and new beginnings!
* The playing cards that we use were originally a divination deck like the tarot. The first book published about this was written by Olney Richmond in 1893. Richmond was the Grand Master of a secret society known as The Order of The Magi. He claims that his order was instructed, since the days of Egypt, to keep the secrets of the cards alive and protected until the proper time for their revelation to the world.
