Not quite spring: numerology cycles for February 15–29
My dog thinks it is spring already. He is being hoodwinked by the longer days. He stands wistfully at the door, wearing his favourite red sweater, which is no longer necessary in the house—he wore it all through the cold weather—but which he loves. The red raincoat is a different story, loathsome in the extreme. And the dog boots -- Grrrrrr. Let’s not go there.
To find out what the rest of February 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
This continues to be a powerful month, cycle-wise, and your inner tycoon will be asking for attention. Be careful of overspending, as it is possible to lose perspective under the expansive influence of this cycle. It’s an excellent time for buying gifts for someone you care about. In career life, you will harvest what you have planted—for good and not so good. Take advantage of opportunities that come your way, but remember to do your due diligence before you make commitments that might take you outside your comfort zone, especially in your financial life.
Key number 2
There is a slightly dark energy around you during the second half of this month, and it’s not totally because of Vancouver’s strange weather patterns. This is a time when it’s important to concentrate on tying up loose ends of the past. You are cleaning your emotional closets, whether you want to are not. It may be necessary for you to do a ruthless self-appraisal of what is important to you and what is simply a habit. Pay attention to your spiritual life. If you don’t have one, examine your relationship to the universe and all that is in it.
Key number 3
During the energy of this cycle month, it is important to look for new projects to start, or an existing project to alter or enhance. Take a close look at how you are communicating with your family and loved ones. If your communication is less than optimal, this is a time to turn a new leaf and begin to work out what you need to do to change direction. Do not wait for others to change their attitudes first. In career life, any enthusiasm that you show for your work will be rewarded. Your physical body will thank you if you find time for exercise, especially doing yoga and stretching. This is also an excellent time to look at your food habits.
Key number 4
Stay in the background. This is not your time in the spotlight, but it is your time to share the burden of others and to keep your halo on straight. It may be quiet in your immediate vicinity, but that’s as it should be. When you’re out in the material world, you will be sensitive, so try not to take things personally. Use your diplomatic energy to create peace and tranquility, especially in your home life. You may be a touch moody throughout this time, but as long as you do not impose splinters of negativity on those around you, the effect will not last.
Key number 5
This cycle month contains a sociable and creative vibration. You can use your creativity to make art or to solve problems, or both. Communicating with others should be easier than usual, and extremely effective. Don’t neglect any work that you have to do, but do it with good spirits and it will bring unprecedented success in the future. For the most part, the energy around you now is bright, communicative and entertaining. However, if you find yourself manifesting on the dark side, seek solace in baring your soul to a friend or professional.
Key number 6
Under the energy of this cycle month, it is very important to pay attention to details. Any work that you do must be done as perfectly as possible. And, remember, the devil is in the details. This cycle energy demands that you work, work, work and that you work with the intention of producing perfection in whatever you do. If you tend to have a slightly heavy foot, or if you feel you can get away with having just one glass of wine, be careful: in the energy of this cycle month, slackers or rule breakers almost always get caught.
Key number 7
As with the first half of February, this is still a “these boots were meant for walkin’” kind of energy. Travel and experimenting with new ideas may seem a little scary, but you are very much in tune with the energy that you are experiencing now. At this time, think about what you say before you say it. You might be impetuous and—horrors!—terribly sarcastic at times. Once the words have dropped out of your mouth, they are there in the space between you and your audience, never to be retrieved. If words were noodles, you might be able to slurp them back, but words are more like rocks, especially the critical words: the big ones fall on our toes and create great pain.
Key number 8
As with the first two weeks of February, being nice and accommodating is still a good strategy for the remainder of this month. Romance should rear its head, and if it doesn’t, you should go looking for it. Pay close attention to the needs of those around you. Avoid being overly controlling. Your inner matriarch/patriarch will be raging to get out and tell everyone how they should behave, but if you allow these inner energies to escape, you may get into the undesirable situation of having to look after those you have taken on as your children. Spend some time looking after your home environment. Cooking and cleaning are almost inevitable when you’re in this cycle month. If you can hire someone to do most of the work and you can just supervise, that would be perfect. However, it is unlikely that you will be able to keep your hands off the vacuum or out of the sudsy water.
Key number 9
For the last half of February, you should still be in the cave that you crawled into at the beginning of the month, keeping out of trouble, not saying much, thinking a lot, and looking within. This is not a social energy. If you must work, do it quietly, and do not push matters forward. As much as possible, spend time in nature or with animals, or doing meditation. If you are safely able to stand on your head, this is an excellent exercise for freshening up the blood in your brain. New thoughts and new ideas will emerge out of this thoughtful time. Don’t mistake the energy of this cycle month for depression. It’s just meant to be very, very quiet—a little unusual in our hectic world.
