year offers you a new vibration for your
work or play. According to the numerology
system of rhythms, we humans journey through
cycles that are nine years in duration.
Each year you enter a new vibration pattern
for the cycle you are in. Knowing your major
energy expression for a particular year,
you are more likely to govern your life
more effectively. You only need your Birthday
Numbers you can play this game.
THIS IS HOW IT WORKS Combine the numbers
of your month and day.
An example: Oct 25 - translates into 10
+ 25, which adds up to 35. Reduce this to
a single digit and you get 8.
Now add up the number of the present year,
2006. 2006 adds up to 8.
So, 8 + 8 = 16 = 7. If Oct 25 were your
actual birthday, your number for 2006 would
be 7. This would be your seventh year in
the nine-year cycle.
WHAT IS 2006 LIKE FOR YOU?
If this is a #1 year for you, you are beginning
a whole new cycle. Before launching into
your new cycle, be sure no loose ends are
carried over from the previous nine-year
It may take all of January to rehearse what
the previous nine years have been for you.
What major life lessons were you grappling
with and did you resolve those issues?
Next get a sense of what is before you to
address in terms of personal growth. What
will you want to accomplish for yourself
in the next nine-year cycle? This is your
year to focus on you.
These are big questions. Might mean a full
year, this 1st year of the nine years, devoted
to this kind of self-examination.
Important to recognize the key features
of your particular nine-year cycle, which
are based on the nine stages of life. A
person in her 20's will be at a different
stage of development compared to one in
her 30's or 40's...and so on.
this is a #2 year for you, in terms of your
major theme for this nine-year cycle, you
will do well to cultivate your
cooperative style. Arriving at a more balanced
place with yourself, and becoming more harmonious
with your fellows could be your major accomplishment
for this year.
If this is a #3 year for you, then this
is your year for making big strides with
your interactions with self and with others.
This means: become more creative, more flexible,
more daring. Don't hang on to the tried
and true mannerisms and ways that
have become ruts in your repertoire.
If this is a #4 year for you, then this
year is best spent in stabilizing and integrating
the newly grasped accomplishments of the
previous three years. Get yourself ready
for the big action coming up in the next
year. This can be viewed as your quiet period.
Your friends might wonder if you've buried
yourself in a cave because you were so expressive
the year before. But in actuality you are
establishing more firmly the foundation
from which you will be operating during
the remaining years of the cycle.
If this is a #5 year for you, then it's
the best year to be fully active in your
work or play. Your energy is high. This
is a pivotal point as well. You stand at
the midpoint and can see where you have
come from and where you are going in terms
of this cycle of personal growth. You can
clearly see how much you have improved your
way of being. You are ready to plunge into
the world with your new sense of the inner
power that has made you more sturdy.
If this is a #6 year for you, now you are
fully able to reach out and be of service
to others, more effectively than during
the previous years of this cycle. Your heart
has matured to a more meaningful depth of
feeling. And you are able to bring your
inner power to the fore and apply it in
all that you do, in your professional calling
and in your personal relationships. And
in the way you regard yourself as well.
If this is a #7 year for you, you find that
your energy for learning new things is quite
high. You can afford to be more inquisitive
than ever. You feel as if you've returned
to your school years, all there is to learn
and discover excites you. Wisdom will seem
to be more accessible to you.
If this is a #8 year for you, then your
leadership qualities want to have expression.
You are approaching the end of this cycle.
You may be in your 30's and have come to
a better understanding of your power to
lead. Your urge to take charge of things
will be ineluctable. You just know what
needs doing and how to get things moving.
Obstacles are easily and creatively dealt
with. You can do what needs to be done with
sensitivity and with a caring heart.
If this is a #9 year for you, then you've
reached a new level of wisdom. Your thoughts
and actions reveal a beneficent heart. There's
a mellowness in your Style and others take
notice. They want to benefit from your insights
and support. You find yourself able to be
more caring than ever. It's been a good
Next time, I will focus on the how each
day brings with it a different mood, or
emotional pitch, out of which you operate,
and what you can do to avoid pitfalls.
