Know how you’ll be on an April day: Your numerology cycles for April 1–15
The sun was warm but the wind was chill.
You know how it is with an April day
When the sun is out and the wind is still,
You’re one month on in the middle of May.
But if you so much as dare to speak,
A cloud comes over a sunlit arch,
And wind comes off a frozen peak,
And you’re two months back in the middle of March.
—Robert Frost, “Two Tramps in Mud Time”
When I was around eight years old, my friend Marcy and I found a copy of Robert Frost’s poems while we were rummaging in my uncle Ralph’s bedroom. Uncle Ralph was single, and based on his reputation, and bachelor status, and the tendency of the members on the paternal side of my family to create cousins who were “born on the wrong side of the blanket,” we thought we were doing something wicked when we used to sneak into Uncle Ralph’s room and read Robert Frost poems to each other. Somehow it was even more fun than reading my aunt Marion’s books about contraception. As adults, Marcy and I both have strong literary leanings. Perhaps Robert Frost was partly responsible.
To find out what April 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
In this exciting cycle month, re-create yourself. Focus your energy on what is new, bright and original, in work, romance or even in your home environment. This is a time for new beginnings; particularly, it is a time for new attitudes to be developed around the questions of self-esteem and relationships. Plant seeds for the future, remembering that in this month every thought, word and deed is a seed for what you will harvest at the end of this year. So plant wisely and plan well.
Key number 2
Under the cycle energy of this month, it is important to be nice. Nice! Nice! And Nice. Be co-operative, helpful and willing to work in the background. Cultivate patience, as things are likely to move more slowly than you might want them to. Don’t start arguments with anyone who has a stronger personality than you have; you are bound to lose, and under this cycle energy, you are so sensitive that it will be hard for you to bounce back. Stay in integrity even though it may be easier to let your nose grow than to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.
Key number 3
This is a party month. Last month, your cycle energy was extremely sensitive and a little repressed, but this month you are allowed to live out loud and shine. Flutter your social butterfly wings in any situation that promises to be the least bit lighthearted. Entertain people with your wit. If you are not inclined to be extroverted, this is a time to be extremely creative. Solutions to problems will spring easily to mind and will almost always be from the “thinking outside the box” part of your brain.
Key number 4
This is a serious cycle month. Hard work and attention to detail are essential in order to survive it. Cross your t’s and dot your i’s in every aspect of your life. Expect small tests and challenges to pop up, especially in personal relationships. In career life or home life, stay very focused and conscious—avoid reaching for your phone while you are cooking, and using your cell phone while driving is like asking the gods and goddesses of luck to turn their backs on you.
Key number 5
Under the energy of this cycle month, you will need to let your inner wild man/woman out to play. It is a vigorous energy, full of restlessness and willingness to wander and investigate life outside the box. Revel in the freedom it affords. Take risks in many areas of life, especially the creative area. Think before you speak, which will not be easy under this energy. Sarcasm or criticism will get you into a great deal of trouble, especially with loved ones. Do your best to be tactful and supportive, which will be easy.
Key number 6
Last month was the month of floating freely. This cycle-month energy is very much about burrowing into a cocoon of domestic safety. You will probably find that your list of duties will include taking care of others in various ways. This is a family energy, so do not try to escape keeping in touch with loved ones, or being a good Samaritan to the people you come across in your daily life. Under this energy, you will actually enjoy being a goody-goody. It will feel natural, so don’t resist it. If you like to cook, this is a good time for cooking. If you don’t, you may want to take a few lessons to see if you can develop an interest.
