Why November 11 is the luckiest day of the year

Aside from being Remembrance Day, November 11 holds utmost numerological significance and is believed to be a day of good fortune and new beginnings. Here’s how to make the most of this important day.

2020 hasn’t been, well, the best of years. But things could be changing as of today, November 11.

Thanks to the powerful numerology of 11/11, today is considered one of the luckiest days of the year.

The power of 1

The number 11 in numerology is considered a ‘Master Number’ and represents growth, development, inspiration and spiritual enlightenment. So, having a double hit of energy – that is 11/11 – creates a powerful opportunity to get in touch with your higher self and envision your goals more clearly.

Because 11 is the number of ‘new beginnings’, it’s hypothesised that anytime you see 11, 111 or 1111 on a clock, it represents an opportunity for philosophical manifestation. It’s believed the universe is creating an extremely powerful moment in which your intentions will manifest with a degree of speed and efficiency never before experienced.

If you think about it, the 11th day of the 11th month marks powerful events in contemporary history. For example, at “the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month” Remembrance Day is honoured in all parts of the Commonwealth by observing one minute of silence to remember those who died or suffered for Australia’s cause in all wars and armed conflicts. Moreover, the Armistice that ended the fighting in Western Europe during World War I took effect at 11am Paris time on November 11, 1918.

So, when the power of 11/11 is applied to these historical events, it signifies a fresh start and a deep transformation in humanity.

“The number one is about new beginnings and fresh starts, and when you combine more of them together, you amplify their energy — which makes November 11 a manifesting powerhouse,” ascension guide and channeler Laura Brown told publication Bustle.

How to make the most of November 11

November 11 is a time to connect with your spiritual realm and a chance for you to explore that doorway to the unknown.

As Mary Hykel Hunt wrote for Kindred Spirit, November 11 offers “the idea of a threshold that can be crossed over, allowing entry into a different dimension, a new land, a place with the promise of new beginnings.

“We don’t know what lies beyond – it may offer challenges, it may offer miracles, who knows – but we can step through as pioneers and explorers of life. The invitation to transform is there.”

So, start thinking big, set specific goals, and ask yourself what you want and why you want it.

How astrology impacts November 11

On an astrological level, astrologer and tarot-card reader Maria Sofia Marmanides told Well+Good that star signs Capricorn, Cancer, Aries and Libra need to prepare something in their life to manifest or shift into something else.

And despite the astrological events of Mars retrograde, Mercury retroshade and a conjunction between Jupiter and Pluto all taking place this week, the power of November 11 will trump all cosmic madness and give you a chance to take a final step towards positive growth.
