Settle in to real life: your numerology cycles for January 16–31
By now the full impact of real life, not holiday life, is setting in. Gather all your courage and face not only the scale, but Vancouver in January. You can do it. Keep Gore-Tex jackets and waterproof boots at the ready. Real Vancouverites eat sushi and salad even in this, the most dreary time of year. Large bowls of miso soup are recommended.
To find out what the rest of 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
This is a time to resolve any difficulties, spoken or unspoken, that may exist between you and some of the people who are close to you. Communicate. Let your family and colleagues and even associates, understand how important it is for you to create a harmonious and loving circle of relationships. Being a loving leader, not a doormat, is entirely possible.
2 key number
Continue to rely on your strong intuitive sense. This isn’t a time to emphasize your power or organizational abilities because you will likely be misunderstood. Clarify your goals, and continue to exercise the creative side of your nature. This isn’t a time to expand or make changes in career life. It is a time to be a philosopher. Get out in nature, do some yoga, perhaps visit a Buddhist temple or a mosque. Spiritually, it is a time to think outside the box.
3 key number
Keep an eye on the economic picture of your life. If ever there was a time for a windfall, this is it. Take advantage of new and progressive opportunities as they present themselves. Consider investing, starting a new business or opening a bank account. Stay realistic but hopeful. This is a time when substantial advancements and recognition are likely to come your way if you play your cards right. Clarify your goals and remember to aim high. Radiate authority and self-confidence. If you don’t feel it, fake it ’til you make it.
4 key number
In the last half of January you will continue to be sensitive and experience the process of completions. Evaluate the various relationships you are involved in and do a ruthless appraisal. Be considerate and co-operative, not only with the relationships that will stay in your life but also with those that are leaving. Look at what is working for you in your career and personal life and what is not. Be brave. Clean your closets and dispose of what is no longer useful.
5 key number
In this month of change, progress and new opportunities, you will likely experience the kind of energy that will cause those around you to either be inspired or roll their eyes. Practise compassion. Not everyone will have the same infusion of inspiration that you will. Be patient with those around you. Avoid developing a steamroller complex, crushing everything in your path. Instead, wait carefully for opportunities to change, progress and develop new ideas. Expand projects you are already working on, and polish your leadership skills. In relationships, especially romantic relationships, ask for what you want.
6 key number
By now you are probably tired of being nice, but it is necessary for you to continue to be patient and helpful—at least until the end of January. It’s really the only way to negotiate the energy affecting you now. Continue to be the peacemaker and the diplomat. For relief, you may want to practise some shopping therapy. In this month you are likely to be a super shopper, with a keen eye for a bargain and good luck in putting together a new look. At this time, clothes really can make a difference to the way you are perceived, so fashion-up!
7 key number
Use your intuition, imagination and inspiration to move your projects along. You should have lots of energy and business acumen now. Build on your optimism, be cheerful, and bring as much pleasure and happiness to others as you possibly can. At this time of the month, it’s a good idea to throw a party or a potluck just to get the energy of the new year moving.. If you are still looking for a mate, this may be an excellent time to try speed dating. Be careful of sarcasm, though. Your usual filters will probably be fragile.
8 key number
There is still a great deal of work to be done. Remember details are important. It is time, to, to build or reinforce the foundations of your main projects including ventures that may have been moving along for several months now. Analyze, organize and schedule. Stick as closely as you can to your own timetable. The pace of this month may be slower than you usually like, but like the proverbial tortoise, slow and methodical progress will get you over the finish line with a smug smile in the direction of the languorous hares.
9 key number
Important changes are likely. Work or family can throw out surprises. You are likely to initiate change, but you may find yourself dealing with changes begun by other people. Take advantage of shifting circumstances and flow with the evolving conditions. Emphasize your versatility and quick reactions. Learn to release your hold on the old ways of doing things and gracefully make room for new strategies. Keep your wits about you. Circumstances will change quickly and can be confusing. It may be hard to keep your balance in the excitement generated by this month’s hectic pace. However this is no excuse to procrastinate.
