Without a doubt, it is this enormous shifting of energies between the One  energy of the First Millennium and the Two  energy of the Second Millennium that is responsible for the challenges facing our world today on both a personal, regional, national and global level. Other than the analogy of the tidal waves mentioned in Part I, we can also use the analogies of a tug-o-war, a teeter-totter, and a pendulum with opposing energies tugging back and forth for dominance in the case of the tug-o-war; contrasting up and down motion, as in the case of the teeter-totter, or movement back and forth from one extreme to the other, as in the example of a pendulum. A rotating world moving from day to night is also an excellent metaphor. Regardless of the analogy, the shifting of opposing forces is creating confliction, confusion, and intense levels of energy manifested in all aspects of life: physically, emotionally, sexually, financially, psychologically, domestically.
In the following chart, consider for a moment the havoc and ramifications generated with a total shift from those qualities in the One  column on the left to those in the Two  column on the right. It reflects a complete bouleversement, a total reversal of attributes, conditions, characteristics and energies. To clarify, think of living in a house of all males for a thousand years - and all that male energy is and represents - and then suddenly finding yourself living in a house of all females and all that female energy is and represents. We can also think of living on a desert governed by dryness for a thousand years and then being instantly uprooted and thrown into a rain forest saturated with water and moisture, or moving from a thousand years of daylight to a thousand years of night. The psychological adjustments alone are staggering, not to mention the physical, emotional, practical and day-to-day changes that would have to be made to accommodate a completely different and opposite set of characteristics and life-survival choices which would be turned inside out and upside down. This immense shifting of energies from one polarity [the One] to its direct opposite [the Two] is what we inhabitants of earth are currently experiencing.
Timeline of the Millennia Shift
All this discussion of the shifting of opposites begs the questions: 1. When did this shift begin? 2. When will it end? 3. How long will its effects last?
The Age of the Female, this current thousand year period of time, can also be regarded as The Age of Others because the number Two  rules not just female energy but the energy of others and relationship as well. For an Age of Others to exist, there must be a large number of "others" present in the world.
When we look at the population figures of the world in the last thousand years, we see that in the year 1,000 there were only approximately 254 million people on the earth. In the year 1800, there were 813 million, a gain of only 559 million people in 800 years. In the year 1900 the population grew to 1.5 billion, an increase of 687 million people in only one hundred years, a gain larger than the entire 800 years before it! The engines of the Second Millennium rocket ship were firing. By the year 2000, the population of earth exploded to a whopping 6 billion people - a 300% increase in only a century from 1900 to 2000! The rocket ship of The Age of the Female and The Age of Others had blasted off! The projected population of the earth by the year 2050 will be 9 billion people [ref: http://www.ibiblio.org/lunarbin/worldpop]. When this pattern is placed in a graph, the explosion is obvious.

As the world population began to fire its engines in the 1800s, the suffrage movement in the United States began with the Seneca Falls Women's Rights Convention in July of 1848, organized by Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Lucretia Mott. The movement culminated in the passage of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States on 26 August 1920, giving women the right to vote. The female had arrived . . . in the 20th Century and in the decade of the 1920s! This happened exactly while the earth's population rocket ship had blasted off, heading upward at enormous speed into the skies of the 2nd Millennium, the Age of the Female and Others. Interestingly, the word "suffrage" and the Lifepath of Elizabeth Cady Stanton are both 38-11-2 energy patterns. The synchronicity of all this is simply too perfect to be coincidental. These facts are the mere tip of the iceberg of Two energy manifested in major players and events of the Twentieth Century. A full list is offered in The Age of the Female: A Thousand Years of Yin, now available at Amazon.com.
Dates of the Shift
With the population exploding, the concentration of shifting energies intensified. The first date in recorded history when the energy of the Two  became manifested in numerology charts was 31 December 1957. When the actual values of these numbers are added together, the result is 2000, the identifying numeric cipher of this current thousand year period which would have given anyone born on this date a pure Two  Lifepath.
The importance of this date was magnified by the fact that only eighty-nine days earlier - a nano speck of cosmic time - the Soviet Union launched Sputnik, the first orbiting satellite of earth, on 4 October 1957. This event started the space race in which two super powers [note two, not three] began a competition [ a 2 characteristic] to reach the moon, an "other" heavenly body which has universally been held to be feminine in nature and marked by the number Two  representing others. It is all beautifully and perfectly synchronistic.
Yet, there's more. Having established the date of 31 December 1957 as being the first Lifepath calculation of the 2nd Millennium label of "2," the next date of importance is 31 January 1969. This date marks the 4th [Crown and last] Pinnacle in a numerology chart [Day, 31 plus year, 1969 = 2000]. The year 1969 was also an auspicious year for the inhabitants of earth for another reason. Why? Because on 20 July 1969, [20 reduces to a 2], two astronauts, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, stepped foot on the moon [an "other" planetary body], thus marking mankind's first steps onto another world other than its own an auspicious event sealed in human history by the famous and unforgettable words of Neil Armstrong: That's one small step for man; one giant leap for mankind! This was during the flight of Apollo II [11 is obviously a 2 in reduction]. Of note is that both Armstrong and Aldrin had the number Two  dominate in their numerology charts. Yet, Michael Collins, the astronaut circling in the Lunar Module while Armstrong and Aldrin walked on the moon, had no 2s in his chart! So here we have Apollo II  landing on another world  on a 20th calendar day  in the 20th Century  by two astronauts, both of whom had Two energy awash in their charts. Coincidence? Hardly.
From a numerological chart perspective, the 4th and final Challenge [Crown Challenge] will not be established until 31 December 2031, which will mark the last day of the Millennia Shift [ 2031 minus 31 = 2000]. After this date, all souls born on planet earth will have the number Two solidly entrenched in their numerology charts. As this article is being written in August of 2009, there are still twenty-two years remaining before the Millennia Shift is complete. It is, thus, a powerfully dynamic time for the inhabitants of planet earth. To be experiencing a cosmic energetic shift of such proportions is quite rare, although difficult and challenging. The next shift of such magnitude between opposing millennia won't be until the 4th and 5th millennia, some 3,000 years away. As One and Two are opposites, so are Four and Five. The only other pair of opposites is that between the Seven and Eight.
Still, even though the core of the Millennia Shift will be complete on 31 December 2031, the effects of the Millennia Shift won't be complete until the end of the first century in this new thousand year period, approximately around the year 2100. Why? Because by then most of the souls born in the Twentieth Century of the 1900s, and therefore imbued with the energy of the One, will have passed on, leaving a planet of souls saturated with the energy, attributes and consciousness of the Two. Therefore, this is not a time to be impatient. It is a time to be calm, balanced and centered. We're not getting off this Millennia Shift ride any too soon, so realistically we need to make the proper adjustments in order to live a life of harmony and balance. Patience, understanding, strength and courage are vital to stability both individually and collectively. In other words, the effects of this Millennia Shift are not going away any time soon. Therefore, it is important to adjust, adapt and work with, not against, the natural forces now enveloping our world and our lives.
We'll discuss more of the Millennia Shift in Part III of this series.

It explains in detail this enormous shift we're experiencing on our earth.

Whatever you are reaping now
you, yourself, have sown before.
This is not lore, but karma.
Whatever you have ever sewn
the same shall you reap and own.
This fact forever known as karma.
Whatever you have never done
will never catch you as you run.
Good or bad you can't outrun your karma.
Every action has reaction.
Every consequence its cause.
Karma is the King of Laws.
So, Dear Friend,
Be wise or foolish but take heed,
Every deed will make you bleed
or laugh or smile or cry.
