What does 2017 have in store for you?

At the beginning of the year, I like to take a look at what to focus on in terms of my life and my work because each year has a different energy to it, and it moves in 9 year cycles according to numerology. First, let's take a look at the Universal Year 2017, and then I'll explain to you the energies of the cycle and how you can figure out where you are in your cycle.

Numerology collapses all numbers down to one of the 9 single digit numbers, and each of the numbers 1-9 has its own energy and personality that it describes. To find out what single digit number 2017 collapses to we must add together all of the digits within it.

2 + 0 + 1 + 7 = 10

This gives us a double digit number which we must add together again.

1 + 0 = 1

Therefore, 2017 is a 1 year which means that on a global scale this is a year of new beginnings and the start of a 9 year cycle. This year will have a sense of new-ness in the way we see things on a large scale (countries, governments, corporations, large populations, etc).

The 9 year cycle flows like this:

1 - New Beginnings, Independence

2 - Relations, Cooperation

3 - Expression, Enjoyment

4 - Practical, Work

5 - Change, Freedom

6 - Responsibility, Harmony

7 - Analysis, Deeper Understanding

8 - Achievement, Material Satisfaction

9 - Selflessness, Completion

Each person has his or her cycle that is independent of the Universal Year. This is called the Personal Year and also flows in the 9 year cycle. To calculate your Personal Year for 2017 you need to bring your birthday into the picture, and add all of the digits from the month and day of your birth to the current year.

For example, if your birthday is on March 14 you add as follows:

3 + 1 + 4 + 2 + 0 + 1 + 7 = 18     --->     1 + 8 = 9

A 9 year is known as the garage sale year and is a good time to go through your belongings and get rid of the items that you no longer need or that no longer fit with who you've become over the last 9 year cycle. Cleaning out your closets will help prepare for the next year which will be a 1 year and the beginning of a new cycle.

For me, this year is a 3 year (October 10, check my math) which means it's time to enjoy life and all of the opportunities that life brings to me. It is a year to express myself creatively whether through music, art, or writing. Two years ago was the start of a new cycle and it was a time to get things going. Last year was shifting that focus from me towards the relationships that are needed to support the projects that I'm working on, and now this year is the time to outwardly express these ideas and share them with the world. There will be opportunities to enjoy life and socialize, and allow the creativity to flow for next year it will be time to buckle down and get to work, putting routines in place to keep everything organized and ensure all deadlines will be met.

Check it out for yourself and see what kind of year it will be for you. Using numerology in this way will help you focus your energy in a specific direction and assist you in moving with the flow of your life.
