The summer is over before it began: Your numerology cycles for August 16–31
To find out what the rest of August 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
Remember to stay on the straight and narrow for the rest of August. Do your duty in all aspects of your life, including your relationships. This is a hard-working month, under which you will labour, and I do mean labour, but at the same time, there is an earthy, sensual kind of energy to this cycle month that cannot be denied. Paying attention to physical attractions, and the need for physical expression and comfort, will compensate, to some degree, at least, for the rigor you must bring to all your endeavors.
Key number 2
If you are thinking of making a move of any kind, this is the perfect time. Is also a good time for planning changes or moves. Be prepared for changes that you have not planned, as well, as this is the time of unexpected events. Continue to pay attention to what falls out of your mouth. Once when I was under this energy, I told a woman that she looked like a tree. I meant it as a compliment, but you can imagine how it landed. If you can manage to think before you speak, you may emerge from this energy unscathed. It is also an accident-prone energy, so move slowly and with deliberation whenever you can.
Key number 3
Being sympathetic is not the same as being a doormat. People around you will continue to ask for assistance, love, advice and even reassurance. This month, you’ll be able to give all of these. However, under the energy of this cycle month, there is a tendency to overdo. Being helpful, where appropriate, is the very soul of this family-oriented vibration. In being helpful, do not fall into idiot compassion. Not familiar with this term? In Buddhism, idiot compassion is the same energy as interference. We all must learn our karmic lessons. Taking someone else’s burden on our own shoulders when they would be better to carry it themselves can deprive the person of an important lesson, not to mention, cause you to feel cranky.
Key number 4
In the last half of August, continue to let the reclusive side of your energy have its way whenever possible. Materialistic ventures are not likely to prosper now, especially if they are the focus of your attention. It is not a time to strain after money or possessions, but it is a time to take a spiritual inventory and ask yourself, “Who am I? Where am I going? And what do I want in my life from this time forward?” Answers are more likely to appear, if only in symbolic form, more clearly now than they have for a long time. Watch for the signs! August continues to be a time when you are likely to be misunderstood. Communicate as clearly as possible, especially in your work and family life.
Key number 5
As with the first two weeks of August, financial and leadership matters are most likely to be at the forefront of your thinking now. Organization, and reorganization, is necessary, if only in the way that you think about career life. You will continue to be able to lead those around you into new and constructive ideas. You will experience a slight tendency to be overly assertive. Watch out for this, as it can make enemies in your environment. Powerful forces are at work. This is a harvest vibration—chickens, fat and skinny, will come home to roost.
Key number 6
Cleaning mental closets is still a priority under the energy of the last two weeks of August. Be ruthlessly honest with yourself about what is working and what is not. I may sound like a parrot screaming the same phrase over and over, but it is important to emphasize that this is the end of a minor cycle. Next month is a powerful and potent place for you to begin your life all over again. This whole year has been full of opportunities for new beginnings. If you have not acted upon these opportunities, you will be given at double whammy of energy to clear things to move forward. Whether you see it or not is up to you.
Key number 7
The luminous spark of this new-beginning cycle month will continue to glow in your consciousness as you go through your daily life. Yes, there is hope! Hope that you can achieve goals that you have given up on or banished to a corner in the back of your mind ages ago. Your charisma is blooming. Use it well, but use it to achieve what you have been dreaming of. People and influences will be willing to help you if you dare to dream what is possible. There will be a compulsion to help others, and do so, but keep yourself and your dreams at the top of your agenda.
Key number 8
Keep a positive attitude in all you do, especially as you work in the background helping those around you benefit from your ability to create peace and harmony under the influence of this cycle month. As in the past two weeks, you will still be quite sensitive and easily distracted by any criticism that may come your way. However, now is the time to put on a brave face and move forward. Negativity will crop up in your surroundings, but you will be able to overcome it by looking at the source and being kind to yourself. A little retail therapy, perhaps? Keeping up appearances at this time will be important to your self-esteem.
Key number 9
This month continues to be a people month for you. If you don’t feel like socializing under this energy, push yourself a little. Even if it’s a one-on-one coffee date with a friend, or someone you hope will become a friend, it’s worth make an effort. If you are single and are hoping for a mated future, this is a good time to go out into the world looking for your other half. In career life, you are bound to be creative. Creating solutions to problems and building new projects is a natural use of your time under this energy. Writing, painting, acting, ballroom dancing, sculpting, or building sand castles, or castles in the sky—anything that allows your creative self to express—is encouraged under this influence.
