Dealing with difficult times: Your numerology cycles for January 16–31
A Buddhist teacher once said it is as difficult for his soul to attain human incarnation as it is for a turtle come up in the middle of the Atlantic with his head through a lifesaver.
To find out what the rest of January 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
Under this energy, it is important to be serious. It will be a long time before you have the opportunity to take charge of your life in quite the same way as you can now. Get down to business. Whether you are meant to be exhibiting your executive ability in your kitchen or in the halls of power, this is the time to do it. Pay your bills; organize your taxes; talk to a housemate about the toilet seat. This is the time for taking control of your life and managing it in the direction you want it to evolve.
Key number 2
Under this cycle energy more than any other, you get the opportunity to see what you have created, especially in your personal life. It’s also a good idea to look at where you are in professional or financial life. Under this cycle energy, you draw a line under the way you were and begin to think about the way you want to be. You will continue to work with endings, clearing the way for new ideas, new thoughts and new strategies for the future. The energy of this last two weeks will be emotional and cleansing.
Key number 3
Continue to work on channelling new energy into this very exciting and abundant time. Look for new projects to start and find ways to expand projects that are already underway. Keep your eyes open for opportunities in all aspects of life, personal, career and financial. You will have that special kind of zip that allows you to go after what you want to create in your life. Be considerate of people in your environment who are not in the same cycle. This cycle energy is also called the steamroller. Be careful not to roll over those you care about.
Key number 4
Co-operation is the key to making the most of the cycle energy you are experiencing now. Helpfulness, tactfulness and diplomacy are your best strategies, whether we are talking about career life, romantic life or finding ways of getting along with a difficult mother-in-law. Be sweet whenever you can. Pay attention to details without becoming obsessive. Under this cycle energy, take good care of yourself. Personal pampering—massage or perhaps some special attention to your nails—will give you more satisfaction than at any other time. At the same time, be available to help your friends or loved ones through any difficult experiences they may be having. Overall this is a time of extreme sensitivity, so don’t take on more than you can reasonably handle.
Key number 5
As in the first two weeks of January, your creative juices will continue to flow and your ability to make the most of your social butterfly side will still be in evidence for the rest of the month. Be courageous and wise in your communication with others, especially those you will need to impress. Use your creative gifts to come up with unusual strategies and new ideas. In your financial life, there will be a tendency to lose perspective. Bank balances and credit cards will implode unless you exercise due care and attention. Under this energy it is very important to stay away from negative people. Concentrate on spreading your own brand of optimism and you will develop a following.
