The right Halloween mask for you: Your numerology cycles for October 16–31
How beautifully the leaves grow old. How full of light and color are their last days.
In the spirit of Halloween, I’ve assigned each key number a Halloween mask that represents the cycle energy that will affect people for the last two weeks of October.
To find out your Halloween mask and what the rest of October 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.
Key number 1
A Halloween mask to represent the cycle energy that you are under would be Mother Teresa. In these last two weeks of October, you are the nurturer and healer. Home is where the heart is, and home is where you should plant your derrière under this energy. Domesticity is the key, so pay attention to your duties and hold a listening ear for anyone who wants to tell you their problems. If your friends need solace, you will be the one with a basketful. This energy encourages you to love and nurture. Don’t try to escape, it is irresistible. Looking for a mate? This is the time to go seriously hunting. Already with someone? Cozy evenings at home are the prescription for making the relationship work.
Key number 2
The appropriate Halloween mask for people experiencing this cycle energy is the philosopher or the mystic. As in the first two weeks of October, continue to keep a low profile. Under this energy, all tall poppies will get their heads chopped off. You are likely to develop some very good and innovative ideas, but keep them to yourself until the end of the month, when you are able to shoot new ideas into the atmosphere like stealth rockets. In the meantime, meditate, do yoga or Pilates, and take walks by the beach or in the woods. If you don’t have a pet to communicate with, borrow one and talk up a storm. You may be surprised at what you hear in return.
Key number 3
Choosing the perfect Halloween mask for this energy is easy: Donald Trump, hair and all. Like in the past two weeks, taking charge of everything will continue to be your inclination. You will also be tempted to work hard at creating hard work for those around you. You are in your power, and, like Donald, you may be tempted to hire and fire on a whim. Think carefully before you make rash decisions about who will be in your life and who you will go, especially in areas where you may not agree with the people whom you have power over. Donald arrived at his position through executive ability, and a good measure of luck. You will be lucky as well. Make good use of your good fortune and remember to share with those around you.
Key number 4
If you were to wear a mask representing the cycle energy you are now under, it would be appropriate to don the face of the Grim Reaper. Hold on now—I don’t mean you’re going to pass over. I do mean that this is a time of endings and completions, which, after all, is what the Grim Reaper represents. This is the end of a minor cycle, so be willing to celebrate on Halloween night, the end of this month-cycle energy, all the things that you have gracefully detached yourself from.
Key number 5
An appropriate Halloween mask for you would be the face of an infant—a newborn, actually. In the energy of this cycle month, you are new, fresh and optimistic. If you’re not feeling this way, give yourself a good shake and go for a good long walk among the leaves. Optimism and new ideas must be planted, otherwise you will rue the day you ignored your trowel and other seed-planting gear. Look at any babies you may see on the street and remember that they have their whole future ahead of them. This is the beginning of the rest of your life. Plant the seeds that you want to flower. This applies to career, health, romantic relationships and family relationships. Be good, and plant good seeds.
Key number 6
Your Halloween mask can be any politician who is a smooth talker. That may rule out our present PM, but there are lots of others out there who have honeyed tones that may not be totally sincere. Diplomacy, co-operation and agreeableness are the qualities that will get you where you want to go under the energy of this cycle month. In romantic life, you must tell the truth, and in partnerships, it’s a good idea as well. You will be tempted to talk a lot. Pause and think before you open your mouth, especially if you are making a commitment that you know in your heart that you won’t want to keep. You will work hard, but in the background.
Key number 7
The archetypal mask for the energy of this cycle month would be a clown. It is indeed an energy under which you can entertain others, make them laugh and be the life of the party, if you choose. Use your charm in all areas of your life. If you use it properly, you will be irresistible. Halloween parties will abound, giving you lots of opportunities to create costumes that no one else has thought of. Emphasize creative projects involving words and stories. Accumulate as many jokes as you can for those parties. This can be an exceptionally fun time for you if you allow it to be. Be careful about scattering your energies, though, as there is a tendency to spread yourself much too thin this month.
Key number 8
An appropriate Halloween mask for you under the energy of this cycle month is a beaver. “Work, work, work!” is your slogan. You will put all the little twigs into place in an orderly fashion to create your beaver dam. This is a time when business and property energy can be very important. In career life, home life and romantic life, watch the details. Be patient and determined to make everything you are working on as strong as possible. Concentrate on any work that must be done, whether it is mental or physical. Be prepared to be tested, but keep your sense of humour and welcome challenges. Stabilize any ventures that you have been working on that now need strengthening. Pay special attention to your physical body, to your diet and any other care you may need.
Key number 9
If you are wondering about an appropriate mask for this cycle energy, you might think about Richard Branson. At this time, he seems to have his mind on space travel, which is the ultimate adventure, unless of course you’re into examining the inner world—Freudian or Jungian analysis, anyone? Expect to be busy, and =avoid extravagant or self-indulgent activities. Unexpected events and visitors will crop up. In spite of all this busyness, don’t neglect your obligations. If you are not in a relationship, or if you are in one that is not very satisfying, prepare for an unexpected alternative. Of course, it’s entirely up to you what you do with it. Karma inclines, but it doesn’t always compel.
