I love numerology, it is easy, fun, and in my personal experience, very accurate. Numerology is based on an ancient system developed by Pythagoras. Pythagoras believed that everything in the Universe can be explained mathematically and that every number had it's own unique energy. With a new year dawning, I thought it would be fun to explore what the numerological energy of the coming year may have in store for you.
The year 2018 is a special year in numerology. It's a special year because it
corresponds to the number 11. (2+0+1+8=11). 11 is known as a "Master Number" meaning it is one of the few numbers that has meaning before it is reduced to a single digit. In this case, 11 reduces to the number 2, which I'll get to in a minute.
The Master number 11 in numerology is considered a gateway number where anything is possible. This vibration has a way of amplifying the energy of intention, so it's definitely a year to put out to the Universe exactly what you want to manifest in your life. Avoid concentrating on negative thinking. What you focus on is what you attract, so remember that fear and worry are energies that will undermine what it is you'd like to bring into your life. The choices and intentions you create in 2018 have the potential to influence your life for many years to come, so now more than ever, be sure to be a careful steward of your thoughts, words, and actions in the months ahead.
The year 2018 also vibrates to the number 2 (2+0+1+8= 11, and 1+1=2). The two vibration corresponds to partnerships, generosity, harmony, peace, and love. This in and of itself doesn't mean that the world will experience those qualities, but that there will be a great deal of focus on the energy of love, partnership, and coexistence in the coming year. Disharmony will be brought to light and there will be an urge to change what needs to be changed in order to build more cooperation and understanding on personal and global levels; something that I think we can all agree is badly needed in the world right now.
In addition to the overall influence of the numbers 11 and 2, we also will
experience this year's energy through the filter of our own personal numerology. This is known as our "Personal Year" and influences what we may be focusing on or experiencing during the year ahead. Once you know what "Personal Year" you're in, you can know what to expect and how to make the most out of that particular number's energy. In Manifesting work, this means that you can use the energy of your Personal Year to help move forward certain life goals that you may be working on.
Figuring out your Personal Year number is easy. Simply take the MONTH of your birth, add to it the DATE of your birth, and then add the CURRENT YEAR (2018) to those numbers. Keep adding the numbers until you get to a single number. For example, if you were born on November 26th, you would add the numbers this way:
The month of November corresponds to the number 11
The date of birth is the number 26
The current year is 2018
There are two ways to add this, both come up with the same result.
You'd then add the numbers in 2055 until you get a single number. 2+0+5+5=12
You can also add it like this: 1+1+2+6+2+0+1+8=21
Then you add 12 or 21 to get a single number, which is 3. (2+1=3)
Either way you choose to add the numbers up, the answer is still 3.
This means that the person with this birth month and date would experience energy relating to number 3 (communication and travel) during 2018.
Each number has it's own influence and specific energy. Add your own birth month and date to the number 2018 to find out what your Personal Number for the year ahead is, then look at the list below corresponding to that number. PLEASE NOTE: You DO NOT add the year of your birth to this number, only the current year (2018).
Here are the key words and influences of each number:
Personal Year 1
New beginnings, new starts. The beginning of a new nine-year cycle. This is a great time to launch a project, make a move, start a business, or learn a new skill.
Personal Year 2
The focus is on relationships (both friendships and romantic), partnerships, patience and cooperation. Compromise is also something to be aware of this year.
Personal Year 3
Communication of all kinds: writing, speaking, email, telephone calls, networking, creativity and inspiration lead the way this year. Short, quick trips may also happen.
Personal Year 4
Hard work, laying the foundation for things to come. Self-discipline, structure.
Personal Year 5
Sudden change, impulsive, acting first and thinking later. Try to avoid making any life-changing decisions in a 5 year as you may change your mind later. A year of frivolity, socializing and excitement.
Personal Year 6
Focus on the home and nurturing yourself and others. Gardening, home improvement, family and creative projects are the influence this year.
Personal Year 7
Solitude, contemplation, spiritual and personal development.
Personal Year 8
Finances, business, achievement, recognition and rewards are the focus this year. If you've worked hard in the past to achieve a goal, this may be the year you reap the benefits!
Personal Year 9
The end of a 9 year cycle. Letting go of the old, dissatisfaction with the status quo. A good year to finish projects and wrap things up. Remember that when one door closes another opens...and the next year you'll be in a 1 year and the cycle begins again!
I hope you found that interesting. While there are many, many other factors that go into how you'll experience the year ahead, it's always fun to see what the numbers have in store for you.
