Happy New Cycle Year: Your Numerology Cycles for January 1–15

Welcome to the next chapter of your life! And welcome to New Year’s resolution time. Last year my most urgent resolution was to finish writing, and make available to the public for the second time in my life, Cassandra’s Secret Cycle Guide. This year my resolution is to let people know the cycle guide is finished and available.

Five years ago, I began to update the guide. For those of you who have waited patiently all these years, it is finally ready to be ordered. For those who don’t know about the guide, each personally tailored cycle guide explains the cycle days, cycle months, and the cycle year or years that the owner of the guide will experience over the course of a one-year period, according to his or her own individual cycle pattern. To order a cycle guide for yourself or a friend, phone Blaise at 604-836-9852.

New Year’s resolutions are good and useful tools because they represent intentions. Even if we do not fulfill our promises to ourselves in the timeframe we set (I began my project five years ago), planting seeds for a better life is a good exercise, and our intentions, like dormant seeds, lie in the darkness of the unconscious mind, waiting for water to help them sprout and come into manifestation.

Vancouver has more numerologists than any other place I know. For this reason, some people in Vancouver assume that they know their number and confuse their key number with their life path number. The key is the key to your daily, monthly and yearly cycles. The life path number is the key to understanding why you are as you are. Numerology charts are made up of many different numbers, and every number has its own purpose in a chart. For the purpose of this blog, you only need your key number.

To find out what January has in store, 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.

1 key number
Staying close to home will make you most happy this month. Concentrate on your relationships, cozy dinners and dutiful phone calls home. Avoid being bossy, and try to understand, respect and consider everyone’s needs—without being smothering. Be loving, but be careful not to meddle in others’ affairs or offer advice that hasn’t been requested. It will be hard not to be a busybody in this cycle month, but give it your best try.

2 key number
You are allowed to allow yourself some time for dreaming and fantasizing this month. Creative ideas will pour into your consciousness. Remember that it is necessary to spend some time doing as well as dreaming. Pin down your creative ideas, write, paint or even take pictures with your phone. While you are at it, text friends and family, not while driving, of course. You will experience a tendency to fall out of communication this month, and that will not always be good.

3 key number
Powerful energy surrounds you this month. You are in command—a great way to start off the new year. You will have an irresistible urge to be organized, and perhaps an irresistible urge to organize those around you. Keep your inner Napoleon under control and your friends and family will be more likely to see you as a person who has it all together. Push people around and you will be extremely unpopular and lonely. There will be solace to be had in retail therapy.

4 key number
This is a month for dramatic endings, even though it is the beginning of a new year. Whatever you did not complete in the last few months will now rear its little green head and haunt you. At the same time, your charisma will be very high and you should be able to talk yourself out of any uncomfortable situation. Just smile and turn on your charm. Some relationships may conclude. Be extremely sensitive to the feelings and needs of the people around you. Your ongoing projects will take on a different complexion.

5 key number
Lucky you! The beginning of the year corresponds with the new beginning of your monthly cycle pattern. Anything meaningful that you begin or expand now will have a significant effect on the next few months. You will be an eager beaver, getting the jump on everyone else, enthusiastically forging forward, planting seeds and creating new ideas—at least, that’s the energy available to you this month. This is a time to leave the indulgences of last month behind and practice purity.

6 key number
You may feel that your year is getting off to a slow start, but the energy of this cycle month requires patience and quiet waiting. Keep your emotions under an even keel. Allow as much time as it takes for your plans to mature fully. Stay in the background, be co-operative, pleasant and as helpful as you possibly can be. Concentrate on improving some of the working relationships you have, and pay close attention to the needs of others. Don’t be a doormat, but be a doorkeeper, always available to expedite other people’s goals.

7 key number
You may have a strong desire to continue partying even though the holiday season is over. Instead, turn your energy to creativity—creative idea producing and problem solving. On the work front, try to introduce a joyous note. Fun, excitement and possible travel opportunities are likely to pop up unexpectedly. This is also a time when romantic interludes are possible. If you’re looking for a mate, your smile will be your best accessory.

8 key number
The first month of your new year starts off with a need to be serious and disciplined. Order and systems will be important. If there are business affairs to be attended to, or documents you must sign, be sure to pay a great deal of attention to the small print. All agreements, verbal or written, must be scrutinized. Don’t leave anything to chance—practicality is the byword. On the physical front, this is a time when you will appreciate contact. If you are in a relationship, this is a month for lots of snuggling. If not, a massage, manicure or pedicure is highly recommend. Otherwise, spend time on transit at rush hour.

9 key number
This is a month when you can revel in freedom, expand your horizons, keep an open mind and concentrate on feeling loose and free. Be adventurous. Do physical exercise, and throw in some yoga to help you feel as flexible as possible. For some of you in this cycle month, a little fling or flirtation will be the perfect prescription for starting off the new year. There is a slight tendency to be accident prone under the energy of this cycle month, so although you should try new things, snowboarding for the first time could be problematic.
