But, why ‘Eleven Moons’? I mean, it’s kind of obscure…
Well, firstly my favourite number is eleven – I don’t know why, it just always has been. I like the sound of the word eleven, and I guess the symmetry of ’11’ appeals to me too. It’s interesting that in numerology, where double-digit numbers are normally broken down (i.e. 10= 1+0 = 1; or 23 = 2+3 = 5), 11 is considered a master number and isn’t broken down the same way; it’s an entity to itself. It’s a highly spiritual number representing balance of energies, which is interesting to me as a Pagan.
And the ‘moon’ part just speaks for itself – I love the moon. I have a tattoo of a triple moon design on my shoulder blade, and the moon holds a special power to me.
Combined, ‘Eleven Moons’ represents the eleventh month of the year – November. Given, I understand that there are 13 full moons in a calendar year, but I think generally speaking if you were to ask someone what month they associated the eleventh moon with, they’d say November. November is a very special month for my family – Michael and I started dating in November 2003, were married in November 2009 and had Lily in November 2012. A month full of anniversaries!
