Back to reality: Your numerology cycles for January 16–31
The middle of January brings us back to life as it really is. In Vancouver, our version of winter prevails—wet and dark—but here and there are small signals of new life. The dog park is full of joyous barking, and even splashing.Brrrrrrrrr. From the cold earth, small green promises begin to emerge. Isn’t this why we live here?
To find out what the rest of January has in store for you, calculate your key number by adding the day and month of your birth. Continue adding until you arrive at a single digit. For example, if your birthday is October 14, your personal number is determined as follows: 10 + 14 = 24. Then 2 + 4 = 6, and you have the key number (6) that you will keep for life.
Key number 1
By this part of the month, you should have an increased understanding and awareness of yourself. You may feel less energetic than you usually do, but the time that you spend hiding under the duvet could be extremely productive in visualizing and planning strategies for actualizing the future. To avoid misunderstandings, you may want to remind your friends and family that you are in your hermit cycle month. Concentrate on honing your intellectual abilities. This is a good time to study or make plans to study. Under the energy of this cycle month, yoga and nature walks are highly recommend. Try to avoid frivolous activities, video games and shopping.
Key number 2
For the rest of January, you are a powerhouse, but remember to maintain ties with friends and family. Take the needs of those close to you into account, and solve problems for others with your dynamic energy—only if they are willing, of course. In career life, get your act together. Call on your good judgment, especially in matters of finance. Those January sales may be tempting, and a little personal treat may be appropriate under the expanded energy of this cycle month, but if you’re not careful, exhausting your plastic now could bring long-term problems in the future. Try not to push yourself too hard, but work at accomplishing as much as possible, especially in career life, while you are under this dynamic energy.
Key number 3
A feeling of loss may accompany the fey energy of this month. This is as it should be. As you did in the first half of January, continue cleansing in all areas of your life. It would not be a bad idea to do a physical cleanse in this cycle month, as well; the effects will be amazing if you decide to take on this challenging physical practice. However, don’t push yourself too far, as most people experiencing this cycle month feel more than a little lethargic. Expect drama and emotion in your personal life, as conclusions often bring upset. Remember, however, that some of the endings that you will experience this month are endings of reactive attitudes that were not helpful. A wise use of the energy in this cycle month is to leave behind a tendency toward negative reactions and make a concerted effort to act positively.
Key number 4
Look for new projects to start, and existing projects to expand, change and promote. Your attitude toward family will play a strong part in this shift. If you keep your eyes open, you may notice that career opportunities are floating in your sphere. Reach out and catch one, if you are so inclined. Break free from old patterns and institute new attitudes. This is an excellent time to change the way you have been regarding your physical vehicle. If you have not been good to your body, especially over the last month, this is the time to profoundly apologize to it and head for the gym, yoga studio and juice bar. Look for projects that will ignite your enthusiasm. Staying in a humdrum pattern goes against the energy of this cycle month. If you must stay in Dullsville for financial reasons, at least polish up your attitude. Shiny attitudes bring unexpected rewards.
Key number 5
Expect to be sensitive under the energy of this cycle month. And expect those around you to be sensitive, too. You—or people close to you—may be feeling more touchy and vulnerable than usual. Try not to take everything personally. Do not make big problems out of small problems. Don’t be surprised if you feel teary at times. This month contains a water-element energy, and for that reason, it is also important to take care of your lungs and kidneys. Avoid exposing yourself to wet weather unless you are properly dressed for it. Strive to be tactful, even when it may seem more sensible to speak out. In career or business life, be patient. If you try to push things forward, you will fail. Be available to help friends and loved ones whenever they may need you. Overall, this is a time of extreme sensitivity, and perhaps even some anxiety. But like all cycle energies, it will pass.
Key number 6
The energy of this cycle month brings courageousness and a sense of lightness and optimism. Open spaces to experience pleasure in the physical realm and experimentation in the emotional realm. Be sociable! Being a wallflower will cause you to wilt under this gregarious and communicative cycle energy. Although this is a party energy and you will be compelled to socialize, be aware of overindulgence and extravagance. Finances may seem less important now than they do under other energies, but bank accounts can be fragile entities so be careful not to overwork them. This is a time to have fun, but it is not a time to waste money. Stay away from negative people under this energy. Concentrate on spreading sunshine wherever you go.
Key number 7
With all the work you are doing this month, it is easy to feel boxed in. For this reason, work at being flexible, especially in the way you regard the work. If you take it on cheerfully—and truth be told, there is a lot of satisfaction and hard work under the energy of this cycle month—it will make life easier on you and those around you. This is also a very physical energy. Physical exercise and work are quite satisfying now, but satiating the physical side of your nature is extremely satisfying as well. Whatever you need to do to make your body feel good—massage, sports (indoor or out), etc.—will make this an easier and happier beginning to your new cycle year.
Key number 8
As you did in the first two weeks of January, continue to flow with changing conditions. Twists and turns of this cycle month may prove a little unnerving, but it is best to be as flexible as you can possibly manage. Clean up all conditions that tend to hold you back. Experiment with new ideas, in all areas of your life. Take advantage of new experiences as they are offered. Social activities of the most exciting kind are likely to pop up when you least expect them. This is a time to grow, expand your vision and enjoy freedom. Let go of old, entrenched ideas. Let the adaptable and resourceful side of your helpful nature rein. While you are delighting in a variety of experiences, keep your eyes open for romantic opportunities. When they do pop up under this extremely flexible energy, romantic opportunities may be of short duration but they are bound to add to your understanding of the joy of living.
Key number 9
As in the first half of January, this continues to be a cycle month in which your relationships with people will be at the forefront. At the beginning of your new year, it’s possible to work successfully on any relationship that has fallen out of harmony. Be available to those who need you, but at the same time, avoid becoming a doormat. Don’t let friends or family take advantage of your good nature. Be as open as you can with your emotions. Share your feelings with people you trust, including your family members. Concentrate on understanding the feelings of others and the situations they are in. In case you haven’t realized it yet, the major focus of this cycle energy is on duties related to your home, family and personal relationships. No matter how crowded your schedule becomes with duties or good works, take some time for yourself. This is a particularly good cycle energy for travelling with people you care about, including family members.
