“There is something unusual about us. Something deeply spiritual.
The way we fall into one another so naturally as if our love was carved from
the earth. There are star systems bursting at our fingertips when we touch. We
are in tune. Our hearts croon the same old song. The universe planned for it. I
know it. I know it.“ ~ Beau Taplin
Welcome to November—the month
There is no such thing as
coincidence, especially in terms of love.
During the month of November
the astrological sun sign is in Scorpio—the sign of soulmates.
But this isn’t about
astrology—this is about synchronicity.
Synchronicity is the belief that the universe
works to provide us with signs that we are on the right track—or that we need
to change direction.
Since the universe can’t speak
to us directly, it’s up to us to be aware of the signs around us.
Signs can come as chance
meetings, articles or quotes that seem timely—and even number sequences or
Often times, the universe tries
to communicate with us via number sequences on clocks or license plates.
One of the most well-known
sequences is 11:11.
This sequence can come in a
variety of forms, and can even be 11, 111, or 11111.
Seeing repetitive 1s is
literally the universe setting off your internal alarm on high alert for a big
wake up call.
But there is more to it.
11:11 also has a deep
connection to soulmates and twin flames.
When we see this sequence, the
universe is urging us to pay attention to our thoughts and feelings—to let go
of thinking with our logical mind, and instead follow our intuition and our
It’s making the choice to feel
our way through our questions, rather than think our way to the answers.
Really there is no way to
use logic when we grow into love, because love is not quantitative.
It can’t be explained, and
there are no rules to abide by or quizzes to take on the matter.
Love is the greatest mystery
and while no one can actually ever see it, most of us do believe in it.
The paradox of love is that
while it can be the greatest gift, it also can be the most arduous journey.
For while we all use the word
“love” to express our feelings, it is different for each of us.
November is the 11th month
and on November 11th the universe comes together to give us the ultimate
cosmic wake up call.
But this time it’s a direct
line to our hearts.
The universe has been working
behind the scenes all year long, activating us through events and cosmic
happenings, so that we can be challenged to live and love as authentically as
It’s been a year of trial and
error—of looking at everything that didn’t work, so that when we finally found
something that did, we wouldn’t have any lingering doubts.
Because love isn’t blind—love
sees it all and still chooses it anyway.
But no love story is great
because it is easy, and sometimes when the going gets hard, we try to explain
In affairs of the heart it is
easy to use logic in place of intuition.
Some may suggest that
there has been nothing special about the astrological forces at play this year.
November is not just another month and it is no coincidence
that the new moon will be on 11th day.
In addition to believing in
this, something deeper calls to us, telling us that maybe there is more at
play than we can really see.
That possibly there is a whole
world of occurrences and meanings that exist outside the boundaries of what the
human mind can truly comprehend.
Because sometimes we become
most afraid of what we don’t understand.
Our inability to understand is
not what perplexes us, but it’s our failure to explain that often causes the
Unfortunately love is not a
subject any of us can master.
Some aspects of life we are
meant to learn, and eventually control, yet love remains the ultimate enigma.
There is no reason why certain
souls call to one another, and there isn’t any explaining the desire or
connection that exists between the lucky few.
This month we are being
welcomed into the nest of synchronicity where everything seems to be coming
together—possibly not perfectly, but in the way it was always meant to.
The universe is guiding us to
embrace all of the aspects of our lives and our hearts that we have previously
battled—we are being given the gift of clarity.
We have the ability to see
ourselves for who we really are, and the lives that we want to lead.
It’s not about running away and
making excuses, but taking the time to sit with ourselves and listen.
Listen to our heads, our hearts
and most importantly, our souls.
November is truly the month of
soulmates and whether we have found our soulmate or not, we can’t ignore
the signs the universe are sending us this time.
But we do have to decide
whether we are going to act upon them.
Because in the end, no matter
how great the love story is, it always comes down to choice.
“You will never be able to escape from your heart. So it’s better
to listen to what it has to say.” ~ Paolo Coelho
