3Crows/3Fates tattoo on the back of my throat Chakra.
I saw 3 Fat Ravens on my way to work this morning. I didn’t casually notice them. They stood boldly in the middle of the road, wanting to be seen. The energetic presence of their aura was striking. They psychically triggered me, instantly, pulling me out the casual conversation I was having with my husband, to declare “Holy Shit! 3 Fat Ravens in the middle of the road, that’s big business”. I knew instantly the Ravens were not there by coincidence, on the day I re-emerged into the waking reality of 2018. They were an Omen.
Omen-a foretelling of the future.
Today is the first day of the New Year that I have been fully present in the day to day world of our shared reality, for it is my tradition to turn inward during the dark days that follow the Winter Solstice; to slow my pace down to that of a half hibernating animal, until after the New Year has come and gone. This time is sacred to me, for in the slow dark I recalibrate and prepare for the year ahead. I do personal divination, meditate, and relax. When the year begins; which I start on day 2, I step onto the path of becoming. An Omen received today is a portent for the year to come.
Crows, Ravens, Magpies & Rooks…I haven’t met a Corvid I didn’t like.
I have had a deep connection to Crow since just before I turned 30. Crow came to me as a Power Animal/Totem in the form of dreams, feathers, and the birds themselves. I saw Crow in my visions and in my waking world. I recognized myself as Crow, for the medicine/magic Crow shared was the tonic of my soul.
CROW/RAVEN-prophesy, magic, communication with the unseen world, deep wisdom, connected to fate.
Crows and Ravens are so closely connected that they share symbolism, with the big difference being how much power they pack. Crows trigger me on a psychic level regularly, I see them as part of my regular world. They pull my attention to things I should remember, speak to others about me (people often tell me they keep seeing Crows when they are in need of guidance and know they should give me a call), and are a major part of my inner landscape. I see Ravens less often, and have always referred to them as ‘big business’. When they present themselves to me, in this reality or the spirit world, I know that something important is about to take place. They are harbingers of Fate announcing “Pay the fuck, attention…things are about to be taken up a notch”.
Upon first laying eyes on the Ravens, I felt that the omen was for me on a personal level, and I still do on many levels. For I am about to experience my life in a whole new way, in which my life is shared publically for any to see.
So what do I think it means? Well, before I can answer that let me add another piece to the puzzle.
We have just entered 2018, which numerologically breaks down to an 11, which is a Master Number. Numerology is the branch of knowledge that deals with the esoteric/occult meaning of numbers, for the use of divination. In Numerology, numbers carry a vibration or frequency that affect all that fall within it, allowing us to expect certain situations under certain numbers. This study can be applied to phone numbers, street addresses, the numerical breakdown of the letters of our name, and dates…birthdays, anniversaries, years.
In numerology, all numbers are broken down into single digits (example- 2017 is 2+0+1+7=1/making the vibration of last year a 10/1), unless the number breaks down to a Master Number-11, 22, 33, 44, etc. 2018 breaks down to 11.
To help you understand the Numerology bit, and how accurate it can be, let me briefly cover the Numerological value of 2017. We already showed in the above example that 2017 breaks to a 10/1. I call it a 10/1 because it first added up to 10 before it was broken down a second time to 1. Having studied & worked extensively with the Tarot for many, many years I see the numbers 1-10 often, as each suit of the minor arcana have numbered cards of Ace-10, much like the common playing card (not a coincidence). 10’s in the Tarot are seen as a beginning and an ending, for as one cycle begins another must end. To make way for the new we must let go of what no longer serves us. In relation to 2017 and the number 10/1, I would ask you to take a look back at your last year. How many of you saw endings or huge changes in relationships? How many experienced upheaval and loss? How many felt out of balance, as if you suddenly didn’t know what all the rules were anymore? 10/1 as a numerological vibration can be unnerving, for it is stepping out the door of what we know into the unknown. It is often chaotic and filled with the unexpected and unpleasant, it has a tendency to be brisk and challenging. If you look at it from the terms of a video game, it is a lot like leveling up. It’s a bit rough as we get used to the new rules, but it holds much promise!
Back to our current year and vibration…2018/11 and the Omen of 3 Fat Ravens.
I believe this year is going to be a powerful one for opening-up Psychically (healing/intuition/manifestation/perception). As I have said in the past, I believe we are going through a Psychic Evolution and 2018/11 is going to show some significant advancements on that path.
