The poetry of spring: Your numerology cycles for May 16 to 31
“It’s spring fever… you don’t quite know what it is you DO want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!”
“In springtime, love is carried on the breeze. Watch out for flying passion or kisses whizzing by your head.”
—Emma Racine deFleur
I suppose spring brings out the frustrated poet in many of us. There seem to be more quotable quotes about spring than any other season. I have a hard time controlling an urge to keep quoting and quoting. It’s almost as difficult as my dog Siriuss controlling his urge to leave messages every few feet on the way to the dog park.
To find out what the rest of 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
Staying in the background still works. However, in the last two weeks of the month, it may be a good idea to place yourself in the role of a helper and co-operator. Taking center stage won’t work, and could be a disastrous mistake, especially in career life, but devising strategies to help others on their path will be almost as satisfying as being in the spotlight. Avoid confrontation. This is not a cycle energy in which it is comfortable for you to be a warrior. In fact, your chances of winning any kind of war, even a domestic war, are very, very small.
Key number 2
I hope you are stepping merrily through this month. If you are not, put your dancing shoes on and do a little caper in your own living room. Creativity in all aspects of your life is available if you want to use it. Your creative wheels should be spinning in high gear now. Use this cycle influence for solving problems and producing creative ideas. One warning, though: think before you speak and check your emails before you hit send. This is a cycle month in which communication that you don’t want to send forth can easily float out into the universe.
Key number 3
The need to pay attention to detail is still at the top of your priority list as you go through the last two weeks of the month. The safest and wisest way to handle the energy of the cycle month is still working hard and paying attention to responsibility, watching your p’s and q’s in conversation, and dotting your i’s and crossing your t’s in any document you come in contact with. It is not, however, suggested that you hide away in the nearest monastery. The very physical side of this energy requires that your sensual self be given expression. Have fun with this, remembering that you’re in a test cycle and that precautions are important. Frivolous or thoughtless liaisons can bring unexpected and perhaps unwanted results in the future.
Key number 4
If you have been thinking about a holiday or an adventure of some sort—and I can hardly imagine that you would not be, under this cycle energy—this is the time to do it, or at least make plans to do it. Flexibility is your middle name, and even if you have been telling yourself you can’t afford a holiday, under this energy, you will find a creative way of creating one. Avoid behaving like a fuddy-duddy. It will make you miserable. Under this flexible and wild energy, you are capable of making new and unusual friends. Go out and find some!
Key number 5
The domestic scene and your inner caretaker continue to be the strongest energies influencing you in the last two weeks of the month. Pay attention to what others are asking you to do for them, and respond with kindness while keeping a balance. Idiot compassion is not required, but in many situations, compassion and kindness to those less balanced will be much appreciated. Take a look at what is holding you back in your emotional life. A tendency to be overly controlling in certain situations may create difficulty.
Key number 6
In the last two weeks of this month, be gentle with yourself. Your intuition is very sharp and, in most cases, you can rely on it, but it’s also important not to let your imagination get out of hand. Under this month’s cycle energy, you will have many questions about who you really are and why you are here on this planet. This is natural for this cycle. These are the questions you are supposed to be asking at this time. Tapping into some spiritual source, whatever suits your nature, will be very satisfying, so if you don’t have a spiritual connection, it is an excellent time to seek one.
Key number 7
In the last two weeks of the month, use your abilities to attain goals that you have been working towards. You have a great deal of power at this time. Beware of being a tyrant. There may be a tendency to be quite critical of those around you, so do not lose sight of how you are being perceived by the people in your closest circle. If you deserve financial rewards, they are most likely to turn up at this time. Under this energy, you will be seen as a leader. Lead with integrity!
Key number 8
Pay attention to spiritual insights that arise during the last two weeks of the month. Listen to your intuition, especially when it tells you to be cautious. This advice applies especially in relationships, whether romantic, professional or otherwise. You are in an intense emotional energy, and are most likely to be a magnet for high drama and emotional situations, even if they are not of you’re making. Continue to do a metaphoric closet cleaning. You will need that clean space in your mind and in your actual closets to accommodate the energy of the next cycle month.
Key number 9
Continue to stay as positive as you can, and be aware that you are riding the crest of the possibility of a new life. More than anything else, be optimistic and develop a fresh approach to how you conduct your life. This is a dramatic time in your cycle pattern. The opportunity it offers for starting new things should not be ignored. Use the leadership abilities that come with this energy for starting new things but also for the benefit of others. Be thoughtful, mature and considerate. The best strategy for managing this new and dramatic energy is to use charm and leadership, and develop new ideas for all your relationships, personal and
