Welcome to the lusty month of May: Your numerology cycles for May 1–15
“Everything is blooming most recklessly; if it were voices instead of colors, there would be an unbelievable shrieking into the heart of the night.”
—Rainer Maria Rilke
So true of Vancouver in May. . .
My dog, Siriuss, loves to leave messages during our walks. I’m sure he finds my efforts to protect pansies, crocuses, daffodils and shrubs from p-mail a little frustrating. Thank goodness for tree trunks and fences.
To find out what May 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
Keeping a close check on your emotions is the key to happily getting through this month. It is a very emotional time, so be prepared to stay in the background so that if you do have to have a good sniffle, no one will notice. Lethargy can set in under this cycle energy, but remember to keep watering and tending the seeds that you planted in your life last month. You may feel timid at times; don’t let it frighten you, your courage will return with a vengeance in the next cycle month.
Key number 2
May is often called the lusty month. A time to be mischievous and experiment. And, for you, a time to party. This cycle energy is extroverted and willing to take social risks. Think and act outside the box. Your creativity will shine through in even the dullest situation. Make use of any opportunity to communicate. Remember to take risks in social situations. Talk to someone whom you would normally be too shy to approach. If you’re into the online dating scene, do your homework and make commitments to meet even people who may not totally fit your requirements. Have fun!
Key number 3
This is a time to let your inner bean counter, order creator and anal side have full sway. You may deny that you have such an inner entity, but under this cycle energy, it will emerge in several situations. This is a good thing. The more anal you are, the better, because mistakes made as a result of sloppiness in this month will haunt you for months and months into the future. At the same time, it’s important to acknowledge that in the lusty month of May, certain physical and emotional needs must be attended to. Allow your inner bean counter to dance with your inner sex kitten and you will achieve a perfect balance.
Key number 4
“Freedom! Freedom!” your inner child will cry. In fact, this is a wonderful time to take a vacation or go on an unusual adventure. Don’t lock yourself up in a room or hide in a cubicle under this cycle energy. It will be futile. This is the time of the unexpected event. Twists and turns, and people you didn’t expect to meet, will be the norm rather than the exception. Expect unexpected opportunities and anticipate a fall from grace if you do not censor what you say. Add to all of that the fact that it’s spring, and you may get a clear picture of this unexpected and adventurous energy.
Key number 5
Last month, you experienced a whirlwind energy; in this month, you will be slightly becalmed. It’s a time to stay in very close touch with loved ones and responsibilities. Cling close to your hearth, and those who are close to your heart. Responsibilities may weigh heavily and are inescapable. Hold a listening ear for anyone who may need your counsel, and be willing to go outside your usual boundaries to help someone who needs attention, perhaps even a parent. We all have an inner child who, from time to time, may need attention and love, regardless of how old our physical vehicles are. Be there when needed and garner an enormous rewards in the future.
Key number 6
The best way to handle the energy of this month is to go with the flow—providing that the flow is gentle and gives you the opportunity for introspection. This is a sensitive, highly intuitive, hopeful, spiritual month. It’s not a time to step out and scream your truths from the rooftops. Make time for walking in the woods and talking to trees and squirrels, or any manifestation of nature. Expect to be misunderstood. If you have a very important message to deliver, think it through before you verbalize it. Avoid a tendency to blurt when you are in communication with other human beings. However, this is the one cycle energy in which it is probably a good idea to keep your communication, at least verbal communication, at a minimum. E-mail and texting are recommended. But review your messages before you hit send.
Key number 7
Watch carefully what is happening in your emotional and professional life during this month, which is an indication of what you have been creating for yourself over the last several months. This is a time when your fat and abundant chickens and your skinny and undernourished birds come home to roost. The chickens represent how you have nurtured your ideas, and how much effort you have put into manifesting your goals. It is a powerful time for you. Make the best use of your power and influence over the people around you.
Key number 8
You are likely to be pensive this month, a little moody and very fey. This is the end of a minor cycle. It’s a time for tying up the loose ends of the past, and planting the seeds of the future. Look at what is working in your life and what is not working, and do a metaphoric closet cleaning. When we are cleaning closets, it is important to select what we cannot part with, what we are not sure about and what must definitely go. That is the attitude you need to bring to this month. It’s a time for getting rid of old ideas, old attitudes, and, in some cases, old associates who are not benefiting your life. This is also a good time to look at habits and ideas that are impeding your progress.
Key number 9
This is a month of exciting change, dramatic progress and new beginnings. Anything that you really put your heart and mind into now can expand and will have a significant affect on all aspects of your life. You are starting over. Keep your energy flowing steadily and positively in the direction of creating a new path. Pay attention to the needs of the people around you. There is a tendency to be overly enthusiastic and a little bit controlling when you are under this kind of influence. Pay attention to what you are being told about how you are perceived. Stay focused and show no fear of the future. Begin those projects that you have been thinking about for a while, and pay close attention to new ideas, as they will be springing up like fairy rings on residential lawns.
