THE PERSONAL YEAR
For a clue as to what lies ahead in the coming year, calculate your personal year using this formula:
First, reduce the month and day of your birth to a single digit. Using my birthday for example, August 22, that single digit would be 3 (8+4=12; 1+2=3).
Next, reduce the year for which you are making the calculation to a single digit. The year 2009 would become 2 ( 2+9=11; 1+1= 2) The Year 2010 would become 3.
Now, add the single digit representing your birthday( in my case 3) to the single digit representing the year in question 2(2009). Thus, 2009 is a 5 personal year for me. It starts from January 2009 to December 2009
Personal Year 1. . . .A New Beginning In Your Life / Take action
The current year is the beginning of a new cycle for you. It holds an exciting new adventure, such as a new business, a new job, a new romance or marriage, a new study or a new project or a move away to a new place. This is a time to clarify your goals and it is a time to act on them. Hard work may be necessary, your physical strength will be up during this year, perhaps higher than it has been for some time, as you have some special needs for this extra energy. It is best not to dwell on the past at this time. This will be fairly easy for you to do because most of the problems and disappointments of the past will tend to disappear, leaving the way open for these new challenges. You will make new contacts and new friends. There is positive energy, use it to its full advantage as your leadership qualities will be in the forefront.
Personal Year 2. . . .Development, cooperation, and patience
A personal year 2 is a wait and see time; a year when you will find yourself in the background and very much in a stage of development. This is not a time to force the issue and try to move forward. Aggressiveness will cause problems now as well as health issues will emerge. It is a time for cooperation and building relationships that will benefit you in the future. You must be prepared for delays and stoppages. You feel as if you are just treading water, you don't get much accomplished no matter what you do! This is a time of helping others, and details must be taken care of when they come up. This year may be a test to your self-control and emotional sensitivities. This is a time to improve your abilities to work with others in a productive way and this can be difficult for you if you have chiefly worked alone in the past. Keep calm, cool, and pleasant. You may experience a degree of nervous tension or depression during this period. Very deep relationships with a person of the opposite sex (including marriage) may be more apt to occur during a 2 year. If married, there is a deepening of feeling in the relationship during a 2 year. If separated from your spouse, this is the year to put in your divorce papers. Your intuition or instincts will play a major role in your life now. Do not confront your doubts . Be patient till November. Do not get into a depression. Get out of it.
Personal Year 3. . . .Social expansion & creative success /Open new directions
This is a social, happy year,. This is a year when you will want to check up on old friends and broaden your social circle to include some new ones. Romance and love affairs may bloom. Doors open during this year. People make things happen for you as income and confidence increases. Be careful, however, not to over do it... the enthusiasm and optimism of this year can induce haste, so one must not act without consideration. Be moderate. There's always a tendency to take on too much responsibility, be extravagant and foolishly over zealous. In other words, don't scatter your energies, for your thoughts and desires will be running at full tilt and you could simply end up spinning your wheels to pay the consequences later on. Do not undertake too many things at the same time. Resist the temptation to completely give in to having a good time; keep your goals in mind. A good time to expand personal creative talents or hobbies, particularly those related to the arts and verbal skills.
Personal Year 4. . . .Hard work, slow but steady progress
This is a year of hard work and effort. In many ways, however, it is a frustrating year, when considerable effort fails to produce dramatic results. You'll find that life will call upon you to put your affairs in order, to cultivate solid relationships, to establish method and system in all your personal/business matters and make plans for the expansion and activity due to begin next year during 2010. Don't allow yourself to feel low or be depressed during 2009, for you could feel frustrated with the weight of responsibility and limitation that is presently calling forth your best effort. It is a time to get organized, deal with practical matters, and it's not a time to be lazy and bring yourself down to earth. Responsibilities will increase as you may have to take care of others in the family. You experience the expenses and sacrifices you'll be asked to make and though difficult, you'll come out better prepared and able to cope with life's mounting pressures. If you're scattered and attempting to expand or foolishly taking on additional responsibilities (without a plan), you'll be headed for a life collision. This year is your working partner, teacher and mentor, hear its voice, honor its efforts and you'll be guided (through hard work and effort) along the path to success. Health and diet should be carefully scrutinized this year, as physical resistance is low and you may become more susceptible to ailments. Take brisk walks, go on that crash diet and exercise to release stress. There will be misunderstandings in relationships. You could also be lonely. If single you may meet a partner. It is not love at first sight but it takes time to develop.
Personal Year 5. . . . Feeling Loose and Free
This is a number 5 year, a year of major change in your life. Horizons are expanded. You are likely to make a number of new friends/ new contacts this year as social activities are expanded. This is a year that will bring excitement and adventure and a good deal more freedom than you have experienced in recent years. This is a time for feeling loose and free; for moving away from old routines and old thought processes in a constructive way. Now is the time to seek out new directions. It's a good time to advertise and sell. Surprises are in store, and the routine is broken. This is a year when exciting relationships can be formed, or, if you are already in a partnership, new life is breathed into the relationship.
The problem with a personal year 5 is the tendency to scatter energies in all directions. You can also get tempted to an addiction of either alcohol, drugs, sex etc. Your ability to do detail work is limited now and it will make you feel very confined. In all, this a free-wheeling year that is liable to bring major changes to your life; your career, your family situation, your residence.
Personal Year 6. . . . Love, Family, Home and Responsibility
This year brings on increasing responsibilities and a deepening concern for family, loved ones, and close friends. It may be a year when you are called on to make some adjustments in your life, or sacrifices for those in your family or close circle of friends. This is a year for finishing projects started earlier. If you are unable to do so, there will be major problems. It is a time when love is the easiest to attract, and partnerships formed under this vibration have a better chance for longevity. You are able to attract others, and material things as well, this year. You could also be buying or renting a home, fixing up the house or buying some furniture, painting or remodeling. You will want to find security by giving, seeking and receiving love and attention. You might want to teach, counsel, comfort or advise others. One often pays bills, settles estates and establishes trusts or savings accounts for the future. The heart turns domestic and seeks balance, harmony, serenity and beauty in its surroundings, family and home.
There may be demands placed upon you for funds... donations, contributions, doctor bills, school costs or child support. You may be called upon to comfort the sick and assist family members by providing support, emotional as well as financial, short term or long. You may have to be a peacemaker or adjuster of family differences... could even be your own. Health issues often loom to the forefront, dental work long neglected demands attention; other health issues could flare and come to the surface. Help others (and yourself) wherever and whenever you can
Personal Year 7. . . . a time for analysis and understanding
A 7 personal year is a very introspective year, a period of some pause and reflection between very active years in your life. You should try to get away from business pressures. You will find that you simply have less energy or interest in "going and doing". There will be a more self-protective aura about you, which may cause your friends and associates to wonder if things are OK... asking if you're well or perhaps despondent about something. The truth is that life has just ushered you through the portals of time to a space where you now begin to assess the results of your prior efforts. You begin to feel the need to reevaluate your goals and objectives, which usually leads one to review his or her present direction and future aspirations. Try to understand and accept the fact that the delays you confront this year are meant to aid you in understanding the self (to help you rechart your future course). Nourish your soul now, seek inspiration, and it's not a time to be lazy. Bring yourself down to earth.
This will not tend to be a year of action, but rather a year of waiting and development. One of the most profitable activities is that of study and writing, for your ability to think clearly, analyze, and integrate your thoughts is peaked now. Your capacity for research and understanding is at its very best. You will want to be detached from all relations. Focus your attention on your talents and your skills in an effort to use the time you have now to refine them. It will be good for you to spend time alone or in quiet activities, free from outside responsibilities
Personal Year 8. . . . Attainment and capital gains
This year you can expect to reap the fruits of your efforts during the last seven years. If you worked hard, had focused purpose and applied real effort to your job or relationship, then this year will bring success and happiness. It is the time to ask for a raise, a promotion , invest or buy a property. If you were organized, efficient, truthful and using good judgment fairly for all, you can expect advancement, recognition and achievement. The year will continue to demand great effort, but the reward will be well worth it. Selfishness and greed or power-hungry motives will turn on you and the life will be peppered with disappointment and loss. Remember this, it's nature's code of ethics and must not be violated.
This is definitely a year when one (who isn't happy personally) looks toward a possible ending of a relationship... business or personal. If you've dreamed of improving your life or of going further (such as well as removing yourself from a marriage or relationship), then go do it..
Personal Year 9. . . . Reflection and Reaching Out
This is a year of completions, ending certain factors in your life. You are likely to scrutinize old values, ideals, and the ideas that you thought were important. Everything that you are not making use of anymore is simply taken away. It is the number of revolution - the process of decay before a rebirth. A lot of things that you have been working for should come to completion during this year, and you will tend to clear the deck for a new beginning . If single you will meet a partner that will result into an affair.
Some experience the (9) energy by moving to a new area, changing jobs, leaving a marriage, a relationship or an interest of long association. Usually one's emotions suffer in a (9) year, they appear sad, moody and temperamental, because subconsciously they know there's a major change and realignment underway affecting their life structures. You will be sensitive and very intuitive. It's very important that you stay positive and mentally/emotionally optimistic, because next year you'll be called upon to launch a whole new cycle or chapter in your life. The experiences of your Personal Year (9) will require guts and determination... lots of staying power, so gear up now. Be willing to let go of the outworn and no longer useful elements of your life. Issues and emotional involvements will be coming to a head now, so don't start anything new... be patient.
When one is in the NINE PERSONAL YEAR, anything begun or started before September will most probably be of short duration, not last and lack permanence. For that reason, it isn't wise to inaugurate new projects until after September . For the present, continue housecleaning your life, have patience, be loving to others, have compassion, tolerance and forgiveness and above all, don't hang on to things, people or situations that are no longer useful or productive.
