Sharing the IFA calender for this Month. And I have noticed some interesting things while reviewing it. Now, my observations have nothing to do with IFA. At least not all the way. These are things that I noticed based on my readings, divination (that I do for myself) every time that I update my calender, and Cuban and Greek folk ways.
I am not intending to misconstrue various traditions. Nor am I intending to offend anyone. This is my personal, mixed, theology and how I view things. Today I looked at the calender on my wall and remembered that I haven’t updated anything. As soon as I get astrological reports or the Monthly IFA calender from this site, I update my wall calender.
Off the bat, I realized that today is Thursday the 8th. Thursdays and the number 8 are sacred to Poseidon. So I did my offerings for him at a tree I designated for male Gods of Prosperity and I gave the offering in his name. Once I realized how important today was, and remembered that Thursday is a good ritually charged day, I decided to sit down and update my calender. In doing so, I discovered some powerful days with numerology.
Tomorrow for example is ruled by Sango and Oya and it is the 9th day (sacred to Oya). Oya and Sango are both warriors. And days they rule carry both prosperity and aggressive energy. So depending on how you look at it, you can either have a really good day or a really bad day. Moving on, Tuesday is the 13th.
Which carries power in Cuban and Italian tradition as Friday 13th. And guess what? Sango and Oya again. So, I added 4 (number of Sango) with Oya’s number 9 and got 13. So it’s a double 13 day. A day of great Mysticism and power.
On the 16th, the Planet Venus goes direct which resembles great prosperity. Since Venus/Aphrodite is not just a Goddess of love but of abundance. But, the same day Venus goes direct, Mercury goes into Retrograde which means everything goes wrong. In the IFA calender, the 16th of this Month will be ruled by Ochossi, Orisha Oko, and Ogun. While in my personal experiences with them, they bring forth prosperity, they are also warriors.
Well, Ochossi and Ogun are. Orisha Oko is seen as a Farmer who brings forth prosperity. Still the symbolism is clear : on one side, renewed abundance, on the other, conflict. Saturday 17th is ruled by Sango and Oya again. Saturday is normally a day for the dead and Oya is a Guide for the dead. The 21st (21 is often a number of destruction or dominance like 9) is again ruled by Sango and Oya. I did the numerology calculations of 13 (Sango and Oya) and the number 21, broke down the final number to a single digit : 7.
The number of Mysticism. To me this symbolizes that out of percieved destruction comes creation. The next day which is the 22nd is the day before the full moon when I do my first lunar rituals. The next day is the 23rd. The 22nd is ruled by Obatala the King of Heaven, Egungun (the collective dead), Iyaami (Divine Priestesses), and Sanpanna the Lame Footed God of Healing and Disease.
The next day is ruled by IFA order, Esu (Crossroads God), Osun (Goddess of love and Prosperity and this is on a Friday like Aphrodite), Aje (the Grace of the Gods, their primal energy), Yemaya (Ocean Goddess), and Olokun the Orisha or Deity also of water who serves Yemaya (or is an aspect of her depending on your theology). Two very powerful days ruled by the Moon. Lunar magic in my experience works well both with the dead (Egungun) and with Water. A combination of several powers and wisdom. When I added the number 22 and 23 and reduced it to a single digit I received the number 9.
A number of destruction or creation based on your personal thoughts. Sacred to Aphrodite and to Oya. And with Egungun on the day before and Osun on Friday which is the day of Aphrodite, there is a lot of power to be had here. These are the days which caught my attention. I believe that this means a lot of reaping and rebirth are set to happen this month.
So watch out and prepare. November is looking to be a magnificent month indeed.
