As the year winds down, there can be a call to reflect on the learning and the growth experienced during the year. The Personal Year numbers can be used as signposts along a road map, indicating trends that last one calendar year. Each of the 9 years has its own climate and tendencies. Much like planting tomatoes in June is more likely to produce a harvest than planting them during a January frost, choosing activities that are appropriate for your current trends will increase your chances of success during that year…
If you’ve calculated your Personal Month numbers for the year, you may have noticed that October always has the same value as your Personal Year number for the following year. For example, if you are in a number 1 Personal Year, October is a number 2 Personal Month; if you are in a number 2 Personal Year, October is a 3 Personal Month, the same number as your next Personal Year. In a way, October is like a preview month for your next year. I have found that many people tend to get anxious for change as autumn rolls around.
While our lives are not determined by the numbers, they do stand by us, like helpers, their function being to promote a better understanding of our circumstances and of ourselves. Each number reflects certain attributes or traits, and these can at times become unbalanced. When found in abundance in the personal numbers, the traits of a number may become exaggerated. When a number is lacking and then encountered along the life journey, a person may feel ill equipped to deal with circumstances in this unfamiliar climate.
They say that on St. Patrick’s Day, everyone is Irish! But, is everyone lucky? It is also said that we make our own luck, but, what exactly does that mean? To my understanding, it is those people who take advantage of their resources, skills, assets and trends that are the most successful, or that appear to be the most “lucky.” Essentially, success is more a matter of self knowledge and self respect than about luck.
Illumination, inspiration and heightened intuition are commonly sited attributes of the number 11. However, in working with hundreds of clients, I have found that the energy of the 11 can be difficult to manifest in a healthy and productive manner in a world that seems physical and limited. In fact, more often than not, those with the number 11 among their core numbers (name or birth date) often express its negative traits before tapping into the number’s positive attributes.
We are always eager to get started once we have turned the page on one more year gone by, anxious to explore what the New Year holds in store. The best way to start the New Year on the right foot is to consider your starting point. If you have begun to use numerology for insights into your life journey, you may already know your Personal Year number…
In traditional numerology, each letter of the alphabet is assigned a number value, shedding light on the meaning of names. The given name at birth is considered to be the most important as it reflects the fundamental character traits and inner motivation of the individual, while the commonly used name, the one by which we introduce ourselves, is of secondary relevance, adding minor traits, aptitudes or qualities. The fact of the matter is that the names we choose later in life are secondary and do not alter the basic profile.
