New beginnings: your numerology cycles for January 16 - 31

We are well and truly past the holiday season, and back into our routines now. Not totally the same, because our cycle has changed. Can you feel it?

Every new cycle year brings opportunities to pull ourselves up by the bootstraps and start again.

Calculate Your Key Number

To find out what the rest of this month 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.

Be kind to yourself in the second half of the month. You are sensitive and perhaps a little emotional, so go forward with a determination to look after yourself. Take a good long hard look at how you are spending your energy, and where you decide it is being wasted, eliminate the cause. This is a cycle for a ruthless appraisal of relationships and attitudes. Be considerate and cooperative with people who are destined to stay in your life. Be kind but determined with those who may be leaving.

Key number 2

Appreciate how lucky you are. The beginning of the new year perfectly corresponds with a new beginning in your cycle pattern. Any meaningful goal that you begin or expand now will have a significant effect on the next few months. Allow optimism to reign. Take a few risks emotionally, just for the fun of it. Plant the seeds of new ideas in career life. Develop original attitudes and fresh ideas in your romantic life. Take a good look at the health of your body and leave the indulgences of last month in the past!

Key number 3

In the second half of the month you are probably a little tired of being accommodating, but if you can control your tongue and continue to be nice, there are great rewards waiting for you. The sweeter you are, the faster you rise. Continue to be diplomatic especially with authority figures.

However, for relief, you may want to take advantage of the January sales, as retail therapy can be extremely beneficial. Pull your wardrobe together and your self-confidence will soar.

Key number 4

This new cycle energy available to you in January offers a smorgasbord of new ideas to choose from. Work at staying focused on optimism and the creativity available to you. Even though you may be a little tired of socializing, being sociable can be extremely valuable to your success in all aspects of your life, including career life. If you are not in a relationship presently, think about what you can do to open new circles of influence which could lead to new connections. If you are in an existing relationship, this cycle energy can help to make it simmer.
