The Number 666

Rays of Wisdom - Stargazer's Astro Files - Excursions Into Numerology - The Number 666Let us take a closer look at the theme of the devil and the age old puzzle of the figure 666, which to this day is believed by many to represent the devil, an outside force that is somehow beyond the reach of God. Such a belief was good enough in times gone by, but by now ever more of us are able to grasp that there never were such forces because everything in the whole creation always has been and forever will be of God and from God. Our Creator is a God of dualities and polarities. S/He is our Father/Mother who consists of opposing powers like masculine and feminine, darkness and light, the highest and the lowest, represented by Christ and the Devil.

Because we were created in the image of God, this is also true for us. The more we focus on bringing forth our highest qualities, the more the aspects of our lower nature shrink into the background of our consciousness and eventually wither away completely. Use it or lose it applies to spiritual muscles as much as anywhere else. And this is how in the fullness of time our own Christ nature becomes the saviour and redeemer and the slayer of the beast, i.e. the desires of our earthly self.

The only way the Christ Spirit can save any one of us is by acting as our inner guide, the living God within, who helps us to find ways of pulling ourselves by our own bootstraps – so to speak – out of the Karmic holes we once dug for ourselves. The redemption of those who do not yet know any better than dishing out nasty things to those around them will have to wait until future lifetimes. When they then find themselves at the receiving end of the misdeeds they once handed out, they will not know what’s hit them. And that will make them see our world as a nasty and ugly, unfair and unjust place, when nothing of the kind is true.

Numerology in conjunction with astrology reveals to me that the 666 in truth is a symbol of the dual nature of God and our own. It equally represents the highest good and the greatest evil. To enlarge on this: the 6 is ruled by Venus = love and peace, beauty, balance and harmony. This planet is the ruler of Taurus and Libra. 6+6+6 = 18 = 1 the Sun, planetary ruler of Leo. 8 Saturn, ruler of Capricorn, the sign in which the highest spiritual achievements are possible. 1+8 = 9 is ruled by Mars, the ruler of both Aries and Scorpio. For further understanding you might like to follow the links at the end of this chapter and study the Sun in these signs and their energies. The Sun in Scorpio as the higher expression of Mars is particularly relevant for us and our world at this particular time.

The early Christian teachings – which many follow to this day – still interpreted the opposing forces of the cosmos as a juxtaposition of God, in human form represented by the Master Jesus, and the Devil, who comes to tempt him in the desert. To me, Jesus represents the highest qualities of everyone’s own Christ nature and the desert is a symbolism for the human soul’s exile in physical existences on the Earth plane. However, I am convinced that our planet will not forever remain a spiritual desert. It will only do so for as long as the nourishing influence of the waters of spiritual wisdom and knowledge are lacking.

Take heart and rejoice all human souls who are presently exiled in their earthly existence. With the arrival of a New Age, the sign Aquarius, the Divine Waterbearer, is ever more pouring the living waters of consciousness into every human heart and soul and that of our whole world. This is how the waters of the river of humankind’s understanding have for some time been going through an intensive cleansing process. As a result, with every passing day they are flowing more freely and the desert of human perception is increasingly bursting into bloom.

What is now before you is part of flowering. But it never ceases to amaze me how much our world to this day is filled with superstitions and false beliefs, and how much work on dissolving them is still waiting to be done. To illustrate this with an example, at the beginning of the year 2016 someone drew my attention to the fact that this number consists of 666 + 666 + 666 + 6 + 6 + 6 = 2016. And, as if there weren’t enough negativity and fears in our world, added: ‘Be afraid, be very afraid,’ with a small image of the devil. The 666 brings out in us either the highest or the lowest of our characteristics. The choice which one of these ways we would like to walk is ours, as ever. It seems to me that those who are aware of this endeavour to be on their best behaviour at all times have nothing to fear.

The year 2016 consists of the 2 = the Moon, the symbol of the wisdom of the Great Mother, the feminine. 0 = the circle of Eternity. 1 = the Sun, the symbol of the will and the power of the Great Father. 6 = Venus, the planet of beauty and peace, harmony. For the whole of the millennium before us the wisdom and love the Great Mother will be ever more strongly with us and walking before us, to show ever more of Her children of the Earth their way back home into the awareness of their true nature. For the rest of this century her wisdom unites itself with the circle of Eternity, while the aggression, the power and the will for dominion seeking, empire building and warmongering of the masculine has served its purpose in the earthly education of our race and therefore shrinks ever more into the background.

2 + 0 + 1 + 6 = 9 = Mars, the planetary ruler of fiery Aries and co-ruler with Pluto of watery Scorpio. The fire of the number 9 is pure creative/spiritual/sexual energy. Among many other things the 9 rules sharp instruments, knives and swords. In the right hands it can act as a sword of truth that is capable of cutting through the Gordian knots of false beliefs, prejudices and superstitions. It can turn into a surgeon’s scalpel that removes that which has become unhealthy and is festering in humankind’s individual and collective consciousness.

Many new beginnings will be waiting for us and our world in 2017, a number 10 year. Under the influence of Sun, Moon and Neptune, wise ones whose transmitter/receiver stations are tuned into the frequencies of the highest realms of life will be able to bring their inspiration down onto the Earth plane, for the blessing and healing process of Mother Earth and all her kingdoms.

So, is the 666 a symbol of the beast? Yes, it is. But the devil never was an outside force. The word is merely a metaphor for the lowest character traces of all God’s children of the Earth, and that without exception. It may well be that the year 2016 is going to bring out the best in some of us and the worst in others. The 9 also points in that direction. Whatever you do, never forget that the choice at all times is ours, that human behaviour is chosen and never compulsory, and that this is valid for every one of God’s children of the Earth.
