An intense month: your numerology cycles for September 1–15
“The foliage has been losing its freshness through the month of August, and here and there a yellow leaf shows itself like the first grey hair amidst the locks of a beauty who has seen one season too many.”
—Oliver Wendell Holmes
Autumn looms. I am one of those people whose birthday arrives at the end of summer, accompanied by yellow leaves, and a few gray hairs. Although I love the fall, there is always a slight sadness around birthday time, and it’s not just because my mileage indicator has clicked over yet again. A friend recently said that he has adopted “mileage” as a substitute term for age and experience—this year, I feel like I need an oil change.
The intensity of September is not only about the end of summer, however. The ninth month of the year is the most dramatic month, numerology cycle wise. Prepare for an intense experience this month, regardless of your key number. This is the only time of the year—the ninth month—when the cycle year and the cycle month are the same. This month, you will experience a double whammy of whatever you have been experiencing all year, so to speak.
To find out what September has in store for you, calculate your key number. Your key number is the key to finding where you are in your cycle. Take the month and day of your birth, add them together and reduced to one digit, and then you have the key to your cycles for the rest of your life.
For example, if your birthday is October 14, your key number is determined as follows: 10 + 14 = 24. Then 2 + 4 = 6, and you have your key number (6).
Key number 1
Spend lots of time organizing your home this month, even if you don’t have people in it who are going back to school. This month is a shift of energy and a move in a new direction. Be as responsible as you can be, especially in family life. There may be little flare ups while you’re under this cycle energy, as it is an extremely emotional time, not only for you but for those around you. Patience is a virtue, a virtue worth practising if you want your emotional life to be harmonious. You will have a tendency to criticize others. In some cases, better to pretend you have an industrial-size zipper in the bottom half of your face. Give yourself a treat, preferably a luxurious treat, from the house wares department. A visit to HomeSense is in order.
Key number 2
This will be a lovely, eerie month for you. Expect intuition to guide you through some ups and downs in mood, but also remember to use that intuition to work on the “Who am I? Where am I going? What do I want in my life from this time forward?” questions are bound to arise under this cycle energy. Remember, there is a double whammy of spiritual energy in this month. This is not a social energy. And you may be misunderstood in your communication with others. For this reason, think through any important proposals or even comments that you wish to make that may affect your relationships with others. This month is a walking-between-the-worlds kind of energy. Listen to your intuition and do as much spiritual practice as fits into your life and inclination. Meditation and yoga are highly recommend, but if that is not your way of connecting, take a walk in nature, and speak to the trees and flowers.
Key number 3
This is the most powerful cycle energy that you have experienced for nine years. Be sure to take advantage of the power that is available to you. Make decisions and allow your inner executive to have full rein without crushing the spirits or feelings of people around you. Organize, organize, organize! Yes, you can do it. Even if you are the most creatively disorganized person on the planet, under this cycle energy you can find a part of yourself that revels in creating order. This is a harvest energy. Under this vibration, take responsibility for what is happening in your life. Your career and relationships will reflect what you have been telling yourself about your life for many moons.
