When it comes to a long-range forecast that needs to be generalized for a large number of people, the metaphysical tool I find to be most accurate is numerology. I won’t list all the things that created negative energy, making tough situations even harder last year, but I would like to point out that in numerology 2014 equals “7″, the number that has two distinctly different interpretations depending on one’s behavior in the previous years—either positive spiritual connections and psychic expansion or challenging upheaval and confrontations due to situations one has been avoiding. Below you’ll find the key to discovering the numerology affecting you personally in 2013, but first here are the astrological factors that could help you do some advance planning.
Since Mercury rules travel as well as technology, it’s always helpful to know when that planet is going to be retrograde before planning vacations. In 2014, the weeks that could be troublesome are: 2/6-2/28, 6/7-7/2 and 10/4-10/25.
Next in importance to me is where Saturn will be hanging out because The Karmic Lord, or Teacher, as the ringed planet is called, tends to put its host through a series of trials and tribulations. Though the tests are individually designed to help the student address and grow past their personal karma, Saturn’s extended stay can be a heavy burden, especially if the person is resistant to growth. Saturn has been in Scorpio since October 2012 and will remain there until December 2014. A bit of good news for all you Scorpions, there will be a lessening of pressure during the planet’s retrograde period this year from 3/2 through 7/20. Just keep in mind, the sooner you learn your lesson, the sooner you’ll get rewarded for your efforts.
Equal in influence to Saturn is Jupiter, who is known as The Great Benefactor (I call him the Fairy Godfather). Jupiter supports dreams and goals, particularly those involving one’s career. Jupiter has been in Cancer since last summer, but it’s been hampered by its retrograde position since November. The big guy goes direct again March 6th so Cancerians will have four and a half months to use Jupiter’s energy to achieve an important career goal. Then, on July 20, all that sparkling goodness shifts to Leo for a year. Pay attention moon babies—it’s been 12 years since you’ve had this kind of supportive energy! Make the most of it before it moves on.
I will keep you posted on the dates of the New Moons, Full Moons and eclipses in my monthly posts.
And now, back to numerology and what it means to you in the year ahead.
Very simply, numerology is the study of numbers and their connection to the human experience. Within this study, our lives are divided into nine-year cycles, with each year carrying a specific energy, advantage or challenge. One important note—each numerological year runs from birthday to birthday, not January to December. That said, the following will help you calculate your current and upcoming year numbers in order to glimpse what 2041 has in store for you.
The first step in utilizing numerology is to condense the number in question (regardless of how many digits it initially contains) down to a single digit between “1” and “9”. This is done using simple addition.
In order to see what the coming year has in store for you, you need to know what number year you are in at this time and what energy you will be moving into on your next birthday. To figure that out, the calculation is made using your last birthday.
For example, if your last birthday was November 5, 2013, the following would be the method of determining the energy or purpose of your current year:
A. Write down the last birth date in numerical form with plus signs in between each whole number:
11 + 5 + 2013
B. Each portion of the date must now be condensed to a single digit. The day is the 5th, which is already a single digit. To reduce the month and the year to single digits, add the individual digits together:
Month: 11 becomes 1 + 1 = 2
Year: 2 + 0 + 1 + 3 = 6
C. Now you have three single digits that need to be added together:
Adds up to 13
D. Since the total is a double-digit number, it still needs to be condensed to one:
13: 1 + 3 = 4
Thus, if your last birthday was November 5, 2013, you are currently in a “4” year and will be moving into a “5” energy next November.
The last step is to find out what your year number means in terms of what you can expect to be the focus of your life for that year.
1 – Beginning of a new 9-year cycle, fresh starts, leadership, new ideas or plans
2 - Relationship issues (for better or worse), duality, double duty, options between two things or people
3 – Playtime, free spiritedness, taking risks, gambling, good luck
4 – Hard, possibly tedious or exhausting work, no time to relax let alone play, but if used positively lays the foundation for something strong and lasting
5 – Changes, transitions, halfway point in a cycle or major project, fine-tuning and making adjustments in long-term plans
6 – Domestic peace or harmony, comfortable home environment, rest and recuperation
7 – Depending on previous responses to situations or behavior leading up to this year, either upheaval and confrontations regarding issues being ignored or positive spiritual connections and psychic expansion
8 – Rewards for work done, favors returned, reaping the harvest of seeds previously sown
9 – Endings, conclusions, cleaning, de-cluttering, making space (literally or figuratively) for a new cycle
Happy 2014! I hope yours is magickal and all your reads are Passionate.
