A Lesson in Resilience

cherry tree resilienceOne of my brothers still lives on Cape Cod, the place where my 5 siblings and I grew up. This is noteworthy for two reasons – first, he is a scenic photographer – he captures amazing shots of nature; second, Cape Cod and New England has had snowstorm after snowstorm this winter. This has created one of his latest works – the amazing flowering cherry tree in his front yard in each of the four seasons. Amazing flowers in spring, great dense green leaves in summer, amazing fiery reds and orange foliage in fall and the bare brown trunk blanketed under epic snow in winter. This bold tree is resilient; it shows up powerfully in each season. It inspires my intention to be more resilient.

The lesson from the cherry tree is that we too are capable of shining no matter what happens. We are resilient to handle the seasons – and by seasons I mean the constant changes in our lives. We meet sunny days where things are going our way – we flower, we shine. We meet stormy days that seem unfair, unrelenting and scary. When we are intentional and determined about connecting to our inner greatness and strength – to the power deep in us – we find we have access to amazing resilience. This helps us show up strong and committed to life, regardless what comes our way.

It still amazes me that this tree can survive in temperatures from minus 10 to nearly 100 degrees. It stands there and faces what comes, doing what it does best – living its truest self. It doesn’t lament the rains or wind. It doesn’t give up when it snows. It doesn’t wish that its leaves would remain all year – it allows them to change color and sends them off to make room for new ones. It partners with life; it allows life.

We however, like to plan and control everything in life. And when things don’t go according to plan, we find fault. We get angry. We blame. We quit. We feel at the affect of our world – at odds with it.

Or, we could learn from this cherry tree. We could see that we have the strength and resilience to see the blessing in every event, and not to fight with life but live it as it is delivered. “Anyone can be cooperative, patient and understanding when things are going well and life is good. But it is the noble man or woman who can behave with grace and compassion, and even kindness, when times are bad,” shares Garr Reynolds, blogger of Presentation Zen. My intention is to be noble and act with grace, compassion and kindness regardless of what happens in life.

Resilience, or grit, is what enables us to show up committed to life when life sends snowstorm after snowstorm. Resilience is what enables us to show up big to life when our idea didn’t work, the relationship failed, or the job was lost. As the great Japanese proverb says, “Fall down seven times, get up eight.” We can choose to bounce back – we can choose to see what was, understand it, learn from it and get back into life’s driver’s seat. We, like the flowering cherry in my brother’s front yard, can just keep on keepin’ on. Resilient. Strong. Committed. Determined. Intentional. Living our greatness and ready for the next moment of life – whatever that might look like.

Find your resilience role model – nature, a pet or even a person. Mine is this amazing cherry tree. Let it share its wisdom with you; learn from it and let it inspire you to be intentional and purposeful about living powerfully, positively and resiliently no matter what comes your way.

1: Take the pressure off yourself. Consider all others as equals. Feel your focus shift from all things pertaining to you to the needs and circumstances of others. The merging of the masculine 1 and feminine 2 energies is affecting everyone, and it is now reminding you, personally, that you are just 1 person. 1 individual. 1 soul among SO many others. This cycle can help you to clarify your position so that you can finally  r-e-l-a-x…

EXTRA DAILY FORECAST FOR THURSDAY, DECEMBER 31: How positive your situation becomes depends on how willing you are to accept your reality for what it is and, of course, some of it is totally unacceptable from a long-term standpoint. Changes must be made if you are to feel a greater sense of satisfaction or security. The urge to criticize or see only the negatives of the situation may be strong, but there is also hope and optimism on the horizon which must be recognized and accepted, too. ON FRIDAY, JANUARY 1, 2010, YOU WILL MOVE FROM THE 1 TO THE 2 YEAR.

___________________________________

2: You are feeling emotional, but not over-emotional; sensitive, but notover-sensitive. You are able to give without stretching yourself too thin. And, if you have learned anything from recent experiences, you are no longer taking anything too personally. When faith connects with reality – not illusion – it’s power is awesome. Watch out for those illusions though. Life is full of them, and they can be very convincing. Do not be easily fooled.

EXTRA DAILY FORECAST FOR THURSDAY, DECEMBER 31: Relate one thing to another and try to find a common thread. Accurate understanding is needed. You can now learn something new and valuable as you conclude an uncomfortable issue that need not be carried with you into the new year. That doesn’t mean you will no longer feel its impact. It means that the pressure of denying its impact need no longer hurt you and others and, oh, what a relief that will be! ON FRIDAY, JANUARY 1, 2010, YOU WILL MOVE FROM THE 2 TO THE 3 YEAR.

___________________________________

3: There is an exciting tone to this cycle, as if you are on some kind of ‘mission’. But remember that your goal is your goal, and your responsibility. Others have their own aspirations, views, and experience of life. Judge no one. Not even yourself. Ongoing conflict is counterproductive. Friendly cooperation and acceptance are needed. You have much to be optimistic about. A certain idea is no longer ‘before its time’.

EXTRA DAILY FORECAST FOR THURSDAY, DECEMBER 31: Diversity is the theme. Look for a common thread between matters of love, friendship, freedom, independence, security, past mistakes, future plans, duty, work, fairness, and global events. Put your priorities in the right order. Stay alert. You cannot proceed intelligently if you don’t know what needs to be done or changed. You do not have to discard a goal but, from now on, it must be dealt with at a more realistic pace.ON FRIDAY, JANUARY 1, YOU WILL MOVE FROM THE 3 TO THE 4 YEAR.

___________________________________

4: No one is immune to the uncertainty of humanity’s evolving journey into Free Will. Concerns about what the new year may bring are realistic and healthy. Accept the fact that the healing of your emotions, spirit, body, heart, and soul is ongoing – the work of a lifetime. No matter what is happening, raise your expectations and allow a new vision to form.

EXTRA DAILY FORECAST FOR THURSDAY, DECEMBER 31: A promising situation is developing but other sources of struggle must still be worked through. Patience and cooperation will help you better understand the unusual ideas that are swirling around in your head. Your intuition is right on target so, when the insight comes, believe it! And believe those very wise words of Albert Einstein: “We cannot solve the problems we have created with the same level of thinking that created them.ON FRIDAY, JANUARY 1, YOU WILL MOVE FROM THE 4 TO THE 5 YEAR.

___________________________________

5: Being open and friendly in a world so lacking in openness and friendliness can feel painful. So, keep certain details to yourself for now. Then you will be able to enjoy the insight that this cycle offers. You have every reason to feel gratified. The mistakes you made along the way no longer matter, but what they taught you can now be used to your advantage.

EXTRA DAILY FORECAST FOR THURSDAY, DECEMBER 31: Give credit where it is due, and compassion where it is needed. Accept the fact that you are in thistogether. If you want a successful outcome, and if you want this ‘team’ to operate in a mutually beneficial way, you must take the emotional pressure off each other by accepting that you do not owe each other anything. You are separate and unique individuals with different energies, needs, histories, and points of view. Real friendship feels so good because it is a form of LOVE. ON FRIDAY, JANUARY 1, YOU WILL MOVE FROM THE 5 TO THE 6 YEAR.

___________________________________

6: Families and groups are made up of individuals. The more you try to control things, the more complex life becomes. You are meant to be healing the situation, not controlling it, so let go of unrealistic expectations of others, or release yourself from their expectations. Know the difference between the feeling of ‘belonging’ and the belief that we ‘belong’ to each other. We do not own love. Love needs to be freely felt, shared, given, and received.

EXTRA DAILY FORECAST FOR THURSDAY, DECEMBER 31: Accept the fact that you are tired and you really do need to rest. It’s only guilt telling you that you cannot. From a relaxed frame of mind, you will be better able to tap into this cycle’s power of words, correct information, and, most importantly, the power of your own intuition. If you are too tired to take in the facts, a situation could arise that will make rest impossible. Remove yourself from the fray, and choose to do what is best for you. ON FRIDAY, JANUARY 1, YOU WILL MOVE FROM THE 6 TO THE 7 YEAR.

___________________________________

7: There is still something you’re doing, or intend to do, that is holding you back. It is something you run to every time you want to avoid change or challenge. Admit to a reality that you’ve been denying. Admitting something means letting it IN. Excessive pride is a form of fear that cannot accept the truth. This needs to be acknowledged now. Let the truth IN – along with some truly exciting ideas which can expand your imagination and horizons.

EXTRA DAILY FORECAST FOR THURSDAY, DECEMBER 31: This cycle emphasizes freedom, responsibility, and your power to reinvent yourself when you feel the need to do so. Taking a responsible route does not mean that you have to stop enjoying life. In fact, much enjoyment can be found in testing your resourcefulness and finding ways to solve both new and old problems. But do be prepared to take a more centered approach – and that means staying away from anything ‘extreme’.ON FRIDAY, JANUARY 1, YOU WILL MOVE FROM THE 7 TO THE 8 YEAR.

___________________________________

8: Try to balance your own needs with the needs of others. This cycle gives you the time, space, and insight in which to analyze what you’ve already got – in terms of assets, connections, talent, and resources. What you have achieved so far is only one step in a much greater plan. So, while you’re waiting for more understanding to come in, relax, breathe easy, and make yourself at home!

EXTRA DAILY FORECAST FOR THURSDAY, DECEMBER 31: There is a sudden, unexpected, out-of-the-blue and possibly accident-prone combination of energies at work in this cycle. An added emphasis on the body, suggests that extra care should be taken on the physical plane. Slow things down, physically and mentally and be aware of everything that is going on around you. From now on, you will benefit from a much deeper understanding of cause and effect.  ON FRIDAY, JANUARY 1, YOU WILL MOVE FROM THE 8 TO THE 9 YEAR.

___________________________________

9: Your present reality is your only doorway to the future, and that sense of urgency you’re feeling is probably a desire to conclude something and finally put it behind you. Only you can know if this is the right time to do so. What seems unacceptable now may change into something more loving or useful next year, so do not act or speak impulsively. Be honest about your needs and desires, and wish yourself – and others – only the best.

EXTRA DAILY FORECAST FOR THURSDAY, DECEMBER 31: With an emphasis on relationship and privacy, this cycle offers a deeper understanding of, and an opportunity to develop, one of the most precious energies you will ever possess –compassion – otherwise known as warm-heartedness or kindness. If you cannot feel compassion, it is only because criticism and judgment have become mere habits. Break them – and wallow in the healing power of LOVE.  ON FRIDAY, JANUARY 1, YOU WILL MOVE FROM THE 9 TO THE 1 YEAR.

1: Emotional honesty is the only way forward from here, and the only means of knowing which direction forward is. Frustration is a form of anger and you will need to let this natural emotion move within your physical body, let it rise to the surface and then, privately and safely, let it express itself with whatever sound it wants to make. Be alone because your healing concerns no one but you.

2: Only you can create your life as you want it to be. While others must be considered, their needs must not be allowed to eclipse yours indefinitely. Don’t rush. There is much to learn and experience before you can know what your needs and goals actually are, and how to fulfill them. Creativity is not just about the arts. It’s about finding the right chemistry to bring about a desired reaction in any area of your life.

3: You are on a more creative path but the unhappiness you are denying can blind you to your progress, or make you feel guilty for wanting to move on, or for wanting more. You cannot experience happiness while you are holding so much sadness inside, and this is a chance to heal some of that pain. You cannot switch your feelings off and then expect to feel happy. A switch called denial does exist, but remember that if you cannot feel, you cannot think anything new. If you cannot feel, you cannot feel alive.

4: You are made of energy which, by nature, must keep moving. Observe the principles of cause and effect as your journey proceeds in the direction that your senses, desires, and choices take you. An effect can only be understood by tracing its cause, which may be deeply buried. Ask yourself if the direction you are taking is what you really want. What do you mean you don’t have time for this? This is what time is for!

5: Action can be taken, but you must be able to sense when enough is enough. You, or someone close, needs some peaceful and loving cooperation. Responsibility needs to be taken – and shared. This can lead to an unexpected and much needed truce or union. Use your light to help someone else shine. Notice how it is reflected back to you in the form of forgiveness or a willingness to cooperate.

6: If you find yourself laughing in what seems like an inappropriate way, it is a good sign that you have moved some of that heavy guilt and blame out of your system and that emotional healing is taking place. If you are serious about bringing joy back into your life, allow happiness to express itself as it arises and, if your intent is loving, ‘appropriateness’ will have nothing to do with it. Love has a sense of humor, and laughter is a potent medicine.

7: Communication, loyalty and friendship are emphasized. If an issue is boxing you in, or if others are telling you how you should be proceeding, a self-protective reaction is understandable. You do not want to be unfriendly, but you are in no mood for other people’s nonsense either. Worrying about what others think is unnecessary. Confidence and relaxed interaction will come back to you gradually.

8: You are an important part of a team but not the star of the show. Cooperate. Keep your goals in your heart as you deal with this temporary experience. You are on unfamiliar ground. Others may feel out of their depth too. Be patient. Stay calm and be considerate. Loosen up and encourage others to do the same. There is a time and place for everything, and this is the time and place to use the power of gentleness.

9: It will be difficult to prevent emotional movement now. Your feelings need to express themselves in order for you to evolve from an old situation. Everyone involved needs to be who they are – who they have become. This cycle of love, beauty, and relationship can be easily damaged by indifference, defensiveness or judgment, so try to create a peaceful and harmonious atmosphere. Let yourself enjoy the love and affection all around you.

1: This cycle illuminates areas of your life where inequality and imbalance rule. There is also an emphasis on what you are consuming – the food and other substances you put in your body, information you chew over in your mind, or the way certain resources are being eaten up. Perhaps you are allowing something to consume you. Choose only that which heals and nourishes.

2: You can’t expect much from anyone right now, yet, the potential for future fulfillment is starting to sink in. Feeling optimistic and pessimistic at the same time is not unusual in this cycle. You don’t know what to expect, but you can sense that things are changing, slowly and surely. Patience really does pay off when it is used at the right time and in the right circumstances.

3: The power of communication is emphasized, and the  disturbances that occur when stubborn beliefs are challenged or when words are used to control rather than inform. Don’t follow the crowd, or someone with whom you are impressed or want to impress. Just be yourself and express what is truly in your heart. There is no need to be overwhelmed or intimidated. Remember that you are responsible for what you believe. Base your decisions on what you feel is true – not on your need for reassurance or approval.

4: Take a good look at other people’s chaos, and you will realize that you are more organized than you thought. Feel your confidence returning. Feel your Will vigorously trying to free itself. There is a very strong and courageous part of you which, somehow, got left behind in the past, and you cannot be complete while it’s not with you. Look for it. Find it. Rescue it. Become whole again.

5: Gaining experience from mistakes is an ongoing way of life that helps us proceed freely and safely. You can achieve such confidence now – the feeling that you are in control of your own life – provided you don’t give it away to something you run the risk of becoming dependent on. If this happens, or already has, find a way to untie yourself and proceed more independently.

6: Love does not hurt but, all too often, love gets hurt. And, love that is in pain does not always behave or react as we believe it should. No matter what feelings arise in this cycle, give them a chance to express themselves unhampered, because that is the only way they can heal. It is also the only way they can be transformed from what feels like baggage, to the love they once were.

7: You want to appear calm and relaxed, but you know that pretense is no substitute for the real thing. You will make great progress by communicating on the basis that everyone is equal. Even those who do not seem to be directly connected to your plans may turn out to be important connections. Connection is the theme of this cycle. Don’t look away. Look deeper.

8: Sudden developments, delays or interruptions are to be expected, and compassion and patience are needed. So much about you has changed and you are undergoing another enhancing change now. Instead of feeling stuck in a situation that is beyond your control, remind yourself that there is something important to learn from every situation you encounter.

9: Speak from your heart and pay attention to the feedback you receive – even if it seems that the only person you are reaching is you. In fact, a realistic dialog with yourself can now help you recognize an overlooked opportunity. The more you distract yourself, the harder you will have to work. Feel yourself craving freedom from an old way of life. How and what you communicate is the key to attaining it.

1: The focus is on work, how things work, or who you think you are. Your sense of identity is the theme. You are experiencing reflections of your various dependencies and, no matter how vehemently you deny your feelings, you cannot move forward until you admit you are afraid of what may lay ahead. The essence of independence is choice. You have an important one to make now.

2: There is a struggle going on between a commitment and your need for freedom, and nothing can be settled unless everyone’s needs are respected. Only by accepting the nature of a conflict can peace develop. A change must be made, or the same old problem will simply repeat itself, and repeat itself, and repeat itself, and repeat itself …… until you finally break the pattern.

3: Try not to succumb to impatience, stubbornness or the urge to control everything. Use a friendly but practical approach and seek a solution that will bring lasting change. Friendship is emphasized and, yet, it may take the feeling of loneliness or abandonment – or the fear of those things – to make you realize how you actually feel about someone else.

4: Imagine what you could accomplish if you let go of the ridiculous belief that you are not allowed to make mistakes, or that you must turn your own light down low to let someone else’s shine. In freedom, making mistakes is how you discover what works and what does not. In guilt, there is never a point at which you have done or given enough. Guilt tells you that you must not rest, but the healing you need cannot occur until you do!

5: Your situation contains many details and involves other people. There is no need to become overwhelmed by the intricacy of it all, or to feel guilty about wanting more freedom. But you do need to get more organized. Whatever you are distracting yourself with is prolonging your fear of freedom. You now have the freedom to place your focus wherever it is needed.

6: Assessing where you belong or knowing which direction will best serve your long-term interests is a complex procedure. The more you rush, the less you will be able to understand it. This transitional cycle between feeling lost and finding your higher ground is pointing out the problems that come with that form of fear we call impatience. Slow down. Think carefully.

7: This cycle slows you down to a pace that will improve your timing and allow you to notice what you most need to see. The plan you are following is incomplete because it was formed when you knew less than you know today. You are experiencing a vital course-correction that will change the scenery, accelerate the pace, and clear the air. It takes time to travel such an important learning curve as the one you’ve been on this year, so be patient with your current progress.

8: Being at close quarters with others is not always easy or pleasant, and that is why this cycle urges patience, friendliness and flexibility. This is a phase in which imaginative solutions can be conjured up. Take the time to see and appreciate the beauty that exists amongst the ugliness, and the beauty that you are. In fact, your concept of beauty and attraction may be changing in a way that surprises you.

9: This confidence-building cycle unearths hidden details and helps you to release incorrect judgments. The change you want must occur step by step. Each step you take will help identify the next. Keep your ears, eyes and mind open. You cannot know how things will change, so be careful where you aim your criticisms or indifference. Be approachable, considerate, and alert.

 

 

Creative Numerology – Week beginning September 3

Creative Numerology by Christine DeLorey

The weekly forecasts are updated each THURSDAY
 

Your personal number for 2009 (you keep this number for the entire year) is obtained by adding 2009 to your month and day of birth. For example, if you were born on May 31, add 5 + 3 + 1 + 2 + 0 + 0 + 9 = 20. Keep adding until you reach a single digit. 2 + 0 = 2. In this example, your number for 2009 would be 2. This applies to both your Monthly and Weekly Forecasts.

To read about your YEARLY CYCLE for 2009, your DESTINY PATH number, your CHALLENGE Number, how to turn these weekly forecasts into DAILY FORECASTS, how to order your own PERSONAL PROFILE, and more, go to the main Creative Numerology website.






  1: You want to move forward but you can only tell which way that is by thinking and acting independently. Your anxiety about the future is understandable, but there is no need to live in fear. Simply allow this natural emotion to keep you focused and realistic as you steer your way along this unpredictable path. You can choose the intelligence that comes from accepting the truth or the ignorance that comes from ignoring it. In the words of Anthony Robbins, “Let fear be a counselor, not a jailer.”




 2: This cycle demonstrates the difference between love and guilt. Love does not want anyone to suffer. Guilt does not care (or even notice) if anyone suffers. Love thrives in openness and freedom but, because of their vibrational differences, guilt and love cannot coexist. Unconditional Love is the highest power of all, but it can only be unconditional if you fully accept yourself, including your true feelings, regardless of what guilt has to say about them.

 3: Keeping up appearances cannot succeed in this open and transparent cycle. There is something you don’t want to face because you don’t want to feel the feelings this would trigger. But your feelings have been triggered, and you must find a safe and private place in which to express them. That’s what stress is: the inner pressure caused by a build-up of unexpressed feelings. Release this heaviness, without hurting yourself or anyone else, and then feel your strength return.

 4: The breakthrough you need will occur in a series of steps, the first of which is a growing sense of hope. Positive thoughts and images can now help you sense the possibilities and draw you to a means of improving your situation. Experience the flow of ideas that a little optimism and belief in yourself can generate. Something you thought was vital to your survival is less urgent now.

 5: Responsibility vs. Freedom. Dependence vs. Independence. Family vs. Career. Peer Pressure vs. Individuality. Many of your inner battles are the result of old programming concerning your right to exist freely, among others who also have that right. The drag you are feeling is fear of freedom which is actually a fear of the enormous responsibility that freedom entails. The key is to know what needs to be feared and what does not.

 6: Release yourself from the pressure of trying to control things, and allow those frazzled feelings (not just your own) to calm down and heal. Remind yourself that healing – making things better – really is your intent. The sooner you let forgiveness work its magic, the better. Forgiving yourself is part of the equation. The power of intent is what matters here. In order to heal, you really have to want peace.

 7: You will not get very far with your mind all scattered like that, and you will be unable to communicate effectively if you don’t listen. Your present reality is constantly changing. By observing your own reactions, you can gain greater self-awareness and learn how to stabilize your position. Prioritize! Pay attention to detail. Devise an achievable plan, and be prepared to follow it, patiently, and with flexibility.

 8: Fear of being disappointed or disappointing others has been triggered by guilt which is showing you what it wants you to believe are your inadequacies or lack of power. Guilt is trying to confuse you with judgments, some right, some wrong, to prevent you from imagining creative alternatives. Don’t be deceived. The way forward may be different than you imagined, so set your imagination free.

 9: If you ignore what is going on, history will simply repeat itself. You can now empower yourself by concluding something, or accepting a conclusion that occurs outside your control. Do not act impulsively. Take things deliberately and steadily. Selflessness is needed. Others will react positively to your kindness or generosity – but don’t attempt to give what you haven’t got, or promise what you can’t deliver.

On the 9th, 18th and 27th, the 9 energy is even more pronounced. 9 is the number of endings, drama, deep emotions, generosity, compassion  and expanded awareness.

1
The secret of change is to focus all your energy,
not on fighting the old, but on building the new.

Socrates

You are on a fast-moving and unpredictable road which brings the focus back to you, and those close to you. Your situation has changed more than you may realize, and if you cannot recognize the opportunity in all this, look harder for it – it is there! Be prepared to act on it as soon as the details become clear.

This new experience with independence and innovation is leading to something much better – if not now, then in the near future. Remember that when we are searching for a way out or a way forward, we very often find something entirely different which is more beneficial than we could previously have imagined.

If comfortable and familiar aspects appear to be collapsing around you, they are doing so to make way for the new beginnings you crave. What are you really afraid of? Change? Or the possibility that things will remain the same? It is likely that you are afraid of both these things, and you will need to face these fears head-on. Some physical discomfort may be experienced as you realize how ‘alone’ you are right now, and that only YOU can make the changes you need to make.

Don’t be afraid to take a chance. Just remember the mistakes you made in the past when dealing with change, and don’t repeat them now. It would certainly be a mistake to do nothing – or to allow your own or other people’s ignorance or negativity to deter you from acting in your own best interests.

Recognize the potential value of something already existing in your life, and treat it as an opportunity to lead yourself in a direction that feels right for you. Success often requires a giant leap of faith – a radical shift beyond the previously imaginable –  which, of course, requires courage.

You now have the opportunity to become a leader of some kind. If you have specific goals in mind, you will know what this means, and you will want to take certain steps which will help you to lead your own life. You will know what to do or, at least, discover what to do.

This does not necessarily mean that you will reach your goals this month or even this year. However, information received and decisions made now can help set the foundation for how you will be living in the years to come. This is a month of timely action. Now is the time to act.

An important change must occur to increase your independence and enable forward movement. If an issue of the past reappears, bring it to a conclusion. Understand its importance – or lack of importance – and release yourself from its emotional weight by letting those old feelings out of your body, safely and privately.

1 is the number of originality and, with the 1 energy at double strength this month, you are likely to realize the extent to which you allow other people’s circumstances, opinions, and ideas to affect or influence you. You are in the process of breaking free so that you can be yourself – as you are now.

The same unsatisfactory conditions will stay with you until you commit to finding a more independent way to proceed. This includes following ideas and desires which originate from you. Making this commitment will take great determination. Not making it will prolong your discontent, your unhappiness, and your fears about the future.

This is an ideal time to begin something new or start a new phase of an existing experience. The most important changes have taken place inside you, and are creating changes in your present day-to-day life. The adversity in the world is real and dangerous, but it is also a reflection of the emotional turmoil that has yet to be released from our bodies. Peace without comes from peace within. And, no matter how wonderful or awful the people around you seem, it is you who have brought them or kept them in your life. They too are a reflection of your inner reality. By accepting others as they are, you can finally be yourself – an original, unique, creative, powerful, and beautiful individual, unlike any other.

Some people fear their individuality. They interpret uniqueness as being alone in the world. They choose to follow the crowd and then become trapped in their own dissatisfaction. You are not alone; you are free – just as long as you are determined to take charge of and be responsible for the quality of your own life, regardless of current circumstances. The events of September will show you that authentic freedom is the home of love, and that love, which comes in many forms, is what you most need to give and receive right now.

2
Be patient toward all that is unresolved in your heart.
Learn to love the questions themselves.

Rainer Maria Rilke

As the 2 energy doubles its intensity this month, your understanding of patience, cooperation, partnership, diplomacy, and intuition is bound to be tested. Do not argue any point too strongly or push yourself to the forefront. Stay calmly in the background wherever possible and look objectively at the conditions and circumstances involved. Notice how various factors are linked.

2 is  the number of connection, and the double 2 energy of September now enables you to make a whole variety of connections from business or social contacts to “connecting the dots” and seeing the larger picture. Be patient. Pay great attention to detail.

An adjustment is now taking place in your sense of ‘self importance’, and you may find yourself swinging from one extreme to another before arriving at a realistic balance. At the same time, this year’s circumstances have taught you that your unique life belongs to you. If something does not feel right, there is no reason for you to be involved. Continue to cooperate where you can, but never forget that you have your own life to live and that certain needs and principles cannot be compromised.

Recent activity has exposed both the insensitive and oversensitive responses in yourself and others. With renewed sensitivity and genuine caring, you can now regain your composure and confidence, bring them to new levels, and emerge from this year’s experiences with a new and more peaceful understanding of life, and your place in it. You are learning to be sensitive to reality rather than to those superficial aspects you once believed were real. Now is the time to BE real, and then watch the real way others respond to you.

This emotional year has given you a deeper recognition of where you stand. You know only too well that nothing and no one can be taken for granted, and that Love cannot survive in captivity, guilt, blame, or judgment. You have matured a lot, and you no longer have to make a big deal of petty issues.

This month, you will realize how insensitivity can undermine otherwise loving or friendly associations. Use gentleness and affection rather than force. Do not depend on anyone else for your emotional security.

Meanwhile, there are many details to sort out and deal with. Approach them confidently and with careful attention. Nervousness is bound to occur, and this natural fear arises from accepting a truth that you previously resisted. By accepting fear as part of the growing process, this emotion will move through you and out of you – all for the purpose of helping you understand what needs to be feared and what does not. You will also reach a clearer understanding of what triggered your fears in the first place, and how to deal effectively with whatever life throws your way.

Your powerful masculine mind (your consciousness or spirit), is expanding. It is trying to create space for your equally powerful feminine Will (which is made up of all your feelings, no matter how you label them). Take some quiet time to feel your feelings. Open up to them, let them in, experience them, and allow them to send messages to your mind as to what your options actually are.

Even if you think you already know how powerful your intuition is, September’s double 2 energy can bring it to exciting new levels. Then you will realize that your Will – your feelings – your emotional self – is spoon-feeding you the solution you have been seeking.  In order to receive it, you must be receptive. You must be open.

3
Beware as long as you live
of judging by appearances.

Jean de la Fontaine

No matter what you are experiencing, September’s double 3 vibration emphasizes an important choice: of moving toward freedom and fulfillment by listening to your own desires (some of which recently changed), or living unfulfilled because you believe your desires are unattainable or dependent on forces beyond your control.

A decision you make now will determine the quality of your life for a long time to come, so do what you really want to do – live as you really want to live – and let go of any doubt as to how others may fit in with your plans. Whatever you started in July is now showing signs of progress. Seize every opportunity to move forward in the direction of your choice. Begin to create your desired future. The mere dreaming of it is not enough now. At this point, it makes no difference what others think of you or your plans. If you wait for their approval, the opportunity may be lost.

Take full responsibility for your own life. You now have a chance to feel more alive than you have felt in a long time. An emotional situation may arise which forces you to express yourself in a way you thought you could never do. Clearly, something needs to be said, and there will be a great improvement in the lives of all concerned when you say what is on your mind and in your heart.

This month, the power of words is stronger than ever, and what you have to say can set the record straight once and for all. Nothing can be gained from saying merely what you believe others want to hear. You may shock yourself as you realize just how deeply you feel about a particular matter; or how much you love a certain person. Or, perhaps a friendship or loyalty has been outgrown and it is time to go your separate ways.

Try to spend time with people who are supportive, creative, and expressive. Remember that every situation has the potential for either a creative or destructive outcome. Recognize how your actions and words affect others, and choose the road of PEACE.

This does not contradict your need to speak up. Your desire for peace does not mean that your needs and feelings should be silenced just because someone else has a different point of view. Do your homework. Only the facts are relevant. Avoid criticizing, gossiping, or resorting to hearsay – there is no peace there. And do not stretch yourself in too many different directions. Focus on what is important to you.

Social interaction or even a simple conversation could turn out to be enlightening. Someone you know, meet, or would like to meet, may have a major role to play in your future. Continue to take yourself and your goals seriously. Others will certainly be noticing you this month and, while outer appearance does matter, remember that your true beauty can only come from inside through a form of love we call confidence or self respect.

Your passion and confidence, or your defensiveness and insecurity, will rub off on others, creating either friendly or hostile environments. But who knows what brilliant ideas will surface when you release those barriers that your well disguised fear of rejection has placed around your creative mind? You are on this Earth for a reason!

4

Even the woodpecker owes his success to the fact
that he uses his head and keeps pecking away
until he finishes the job he starts.

Coleman Cox

This year’s orderly 4 energy may have caused you to create rules and regulations for yourself without realizing how restricted your life would become. This was necessary earlier in the year so that you could get organized. However, by the end of September’s double 4 vibration, you should be organized, if you are not already. Only then will you be able to relax and be kind to yourself, which you need more than anything else right now. Remember that getting organized is not meant to be the end result. It is just the beginning. Organization provides the foundation upon which other goals can take root and develop.

By the way, are you aware of how angry you are? You may prefer to deny the existence of this natural feeling, but it is there anyway. Perhaps it is the result of 4’s tendency to make you feel boxed-in and confined, but it is also likely that you never quite forgave a certain person for something that happened in the past and, as a result, are having to deal with some kind of dis-ease or disturbance in the present.

The saying forgive and forget is often misunderstood. In order to forgive, you have to remember – not forget. It may seem easier to bury (deny) painful events of the past and forget about them, but this is much harder on you in the long run as you must then carry those unexpressed feelings around with you – and resentment weighs a ton! Those very feelings are likely to be the source of the pain you are currently experiencing, and forgiveness is the key to releasing it. Forgiveness is the key to improving so many different aspects of your life.

Don’t forgive for the sake of the other person. Forgive for your own sake, so that whatever happened can no longer hurt you. Real forgiveness comes from expressing the pain and anger out of your body, which then restores your ability to move forward, just as long as you do so with the firm INTENT of not hurting anyone else.

You may also be dealing with the fear that something will prevent you from making the changes you want to make, and the same intent must apply in that case, too. The quality of your intent – loving or unloving – can make the difference between a creative outcome and a destructive one.

Meanwhile, you may be seeking results that are currently too far ahead of their time and ignoring what should be aimed for in the present. It is time to redefine and simplify your goal. This is a turning point at which you must take care of many details, some of which hold hidden opportunities – and to let go of other details once you see them for what they are – petty, unimportant and distracting in the overall scheme of your life.

Avoid impulsive moves and do not take risks with your health, resources, or general wellbeing. Take everything in your stride. Make time for the things you enjoy, take frequent breaks, get adequate rest, and try to be easier on yourself in terms of feeling that you should be accomplishing more than you currently are.

You have not traveled this far through the arduous 4 year without learning that all problems have solutions if they are handled realistically. This means knowing what the problem actually is. Life is not throwing you anything you cannot handle.

Remember that you are not responsible for the happiness of others or for their current circumstances. This year, you needed to learn about limitation so that you could reach, feel the pressure of, and then push your limits away from you with your increased courage, (which, by the way, is the only antidote to fear).

Believe in yourself, and do not give up, because it is your belief in yourself which makes courage possible! No, you are not having some kind of breakdown. On the contrary. In this month of concentrated 4 energy, you are experiencing the strong outer vibrations of a personal breakthrough.

5
A risk is anything with an uncertain outcome.
Part of that uncertainty involves the possibility that
things may go poorly and that you’ll experience
a loss. If you allow for that, only then do your
choices have the possibility of bearing fruit. 
Eric Francis

The 5 year provides many opportunities for change, but it is up to you to make those changes happen. There is a pattern of behavior or attitude that really must change now, because it has been causing problems for you for a very long time. It is time to take a chance on something new – or a different kind of chance, such as walking away from what you know does not work for you.

This month’s emphasis on gambling probably has little to do with playing cards, racing forms, lotteries, or throwing dice. Life does not come with guarantees and, as you already know, life itself, at this stage of our evolution, is one big gamble – the constant weighing up of the odds, followed by intuitively-based action. In this month of double 5 energy, you must accept the hand you have been dealt and resolve to make the very best of it.

Make the changes you have been putting off. Notice that when you change something positively on the inside, something positive follows in your outer reality. Refusing to deal with certain issues will prevent new opportunities from entering your life. Stay open and alert, because opportunity is all around you now. Be aware of your own reality, and that includes noticing how other people’s circumstances effect yours. Do not allow anyone else to curtail your freedom.

September’s double 5 vibration is making this an expansive and fast-paced month in which you will see just how much you have going for you in both the short and long-term future. You must now navigate your way through this unpredictable energy which thrives on constructive change and different approaches to old problems.

Develop a strong determination to steer your life in the direction that feels right for you. What do you want? What will make you happy? What will it take to make it happen? These are the questions to focus on. It is time to broaden your horizons, look at the big picture, and make changes which will lead to a deeper sense of fulfillment.

A mountain is climbed one step at a time. Continue to take steps and you will eventually reach the top. Choose your steps carefully, but decisively. What was it about the way you handled previous choices that always caused you to lose the opportunities involved?

Remember that some people climb mountains not only for the challenge, but also for the fun, the thrill, and the scenery, all of which are experienced before the top is reached. Be a part of your own adventure! Do not give up just as it seems that you can succeed. Persevere. Remember: until you change what needs to be changed inside – your outer reality will remain as it is. Now there’s a sobering thought!

This month, an unusual agreement or arrangement may mark the beginning of an unexpected responsibility or situation, (although you may not fully understand this until next year). You may encounter something or someone whose presence, positive or negative, will be felt for a long time to come. Be aware of how easily you are influenced by others and be determined to keep an open (aware) mind.

Recognize any past mistakes pertaining to indecision and impulsiveness and, if events take a sudden turn, remember that the 5 year is one in which you must learn to flow comfortably with life’s diversity; the different; the unexpected. Flow with any sudden movement confidently, responsibly, with high expectation, and with your eyes and mind wide open. Your 5 adventure is not over yet. In fact, by the end of September, you will realize that a new phase of your adventure is only just beginning.

6
We do not remember days.
We remember moments.

Cesare Pavese

Suddenly, you have a change of focus or priority. September highlights responsibility and those to whom you are closely connected. Whatever your situation, there can be no avoiding the deep feelings involved.

6 is the number of balance. But it is also the number of extremes. You are likely to experience both now that the 6 energy is operating at double force. Focus on issues and people you care about, and acknowledge your own insecurities and areas of unreasonableness. You may be feeling more fear than you are willing to admit, and it is important that you do not allow guilt to cause you to deny your fear. Only by facing your fear can you develop courage.

If there are areas of disagreement or ill feeling, now is the time to set things straight and aim for peace, and if others are unwilling to take a peaceful approach, then aim to achieve peace for yourself. However, it is essential that you at least try to understand and be understood. Accept the rights of others to be who they are and to live their lives the way they choose. Any tendency to pre-judge other people and other realities needs to end now.

There may be a real problem to deal with this month – or – you may realize that this year of problem-solving, counseling, care-giving, balancing and healing is coming to an end. Therefore, be sure you are not simply creating a problem for the sake of having a crisis to solve.

What about your own life? Your own needs? Have you stayed true to your principal responsibility to live more freely? Determine what your obligations are now. Your priorities have certainly changed since the beginning of the year, which is all part of the 6 urge to reinvent yourself in a way that feels right for you.

This month will affect your sense of home and belonging and will involve your closest relationships. The acceptance and validation you desire will come through your understanding of the individual personalities and circumstances of all concerned. Do whatever you can to provide a harmonious atmosphere within this circle.

You may be called upon for advice or practical assistance, or your input may not be sought at all. Either way, you are being released from a certain obligation this month. There is no need to feel empty or offended if others are no longer depending on you. What is most important is that you release your dependence on them.

Express yourself openly without imposing your judgments or rules. 6 is a cycle of parenting, and whether there are children in your life or not, you have been a parent to someone or something this year. Perhaps you yourself are the child involved. One way or another, this year has been just as it should be, an emotional experience.

If you feel disappointment, loneliness or abandonment, it could be that you have still not learned to love yourself first. And yet, you really have learned a lot about love, caring and responsibility in the past ten months, and you will soon be embarking on a new journey of self-discovery which will take you into next year’s 7 year cycle.

Meanwhile, stay away from extreme or turbulent situations or, if there is something you can do to diffuse such a situation without hurting yourself or anyone else, then by all means do so. Now is the time to bring all the various aspects of your life into a more comfortable balance.

7
The will to win doesn’t mean anything
because everybody wants to win.
It is the will to prepare to win
that makes the difference.

Roy Black

The 7 vibration of wisdom is surrounding you from all angles now, and is revealing the extent to which the need to keep your feelings secret has prevented you from reaching your true potential. Now, rather than cutting yourself off from your deepest hopes and dreams, you must realize how vital your emotions are to your wellbeing.

Secrecy (which you may be calling privacy) is of no use to you now. Free Will is ever expanding OPENNESS! And, should something of a strange or secretive nature be exposed, do not run. Do not hide. Face the facts, and let the dignity of the 7 energy carry you, in safety, to a new and more fulfilling chapter of your life. 7 emphasizes secrets of all kinds, and September is likely to bring information or insight which will shed light on important facts that have somehow been kept from you.

You have traveled a long way since the beginning of the year. If you experienced some kind of fall this year, understand that this had a positive purpose which enabled you to learn so much more about life, about you, and about those around you, and you are now emerging from whatever happened with an expanded confidence. A startling new awareness can now shed light on the shadowy or dull road you have been traveling.

There is now more activity than usual and, yet, it causes you to have more profound and introspective needs than usual. Things may not be exactly as you want them to be, but this month’s revelations let you know you’re going to get there!  The plans you make now will prepare you for next year’s dynamic activities. Yes, within the next twelve months, you will arrive at a much more stable and pleasant destination.

Use this month to fine-tune and perfect those plans or ideas. Patience is required. This does not mean putting up with unbearable people or situations. It means paying meticulous attention to detail and denying nothing about your reality. Your intuition is extremely potent right now. Trust it.

Focus on your ambitions, relationships, your expertise, and your renewed sense of self-worth, and take the direction you know is right for you. Ultimately, putting the pieces of the puzzle together and finding your true direction is what this year has been all about.

If things are not going well, perhaps you are still unwilling to accept that certain ideas and methods simply cannot work in today’s reality. Are you refusing to see a new potential that is sitting there right under your nose?

Analyze. Research. Plan. Study. Do your homework! With all your senses, visualize your goals in great detail. Review the past and express the strong emotions that emerge from your memories. You will then be able to see your potential for success, rather than only what is preventing it.

Be your own best friend! You are unique; you are special and, rather than fall into the trap of peer pressure which forces you to follow the crowd, appreciate just how different you are. It is your very differentness that enables you to stand out from the crowd and reach your own expectations of fulfillment. Mediocrity is a tragic loss of Free Will.

There is so much to look forward to; so much to plan. 7 is also the number of FAITH, and this is a good time to remember that fact.

8
Dreams are real while they are happening.
Can we say any more about life?

Havelock Ellis

A specific power is emerging in you but, because you are unfamiliar with how this feels, nervous tension may arise. Try to relax. This is your own creative power rising, and the tension you are feeling is simply your resistance to it. Once you recognize this, you will also realize that you are surrounded by opportunity – along with a strong feeling that there’s no turning back now! Take one step at a time, focus, and let each step prepare you for the next.

Dignity and self-assuredness are the result of truly understanding whatever you are involved in. Be willing to learn. Experience the balance – and the confidence – that true understanding brings.

Do not cut off from your feelings because that is precisely where your power is coming from. Your collective feelings are your WILL, which cannot be free if your emotions are not free to express themselves and, thus, move through and out of your body.

Allow yourself to feel your fear of failure as it battles with your fear of success. Regain your focus and do not try to produce the end result before its right time.

Physical pressure, often in the back of the neck or head, is likely to be denied anger which is bursting to get out. Look for the true cause of this tension. Once your feelings are expressed and the pressure is released, you will be able to proceed with confidence. Otherwise, you run the risk of alienating those whose support you really do need.

You do not have to confront anyone else. But you do have to confront yourself with the significance of something that happened to you recently. If not, the magnetism of your denied anger will draw petty annoyances to you. And fear may be fueling your anger – fear of this enormous power that you know you possess but are not quite sure how to use; fear that if you allow others to distract you, you will lose the momentum it has taken so long to amass.

This month, the double 8 energy may send you another clash of Wills to help you accept – and relax with – your increased strength. If you are afraid of losing your focus – do not lose your focus. You are capable of handling more than one situation at a time. And, you are in a much stronger position than you may think.

Give others a fair hearing without losing sight of your own goals. Whatever is pressuring you will then seem less powerful and less significant. You are now increasing your levels of tolerance. Work through these feelings and then get back to the work at hand – as soon as possible.

Only by dealing calmly and efficiently with this month’s distractions can you make the breakthrough that is possible. You are now able to make a difficult job look easy, even though you know just how hard you have had to work. Remember why you chose this path in the first place, and enjoy what you are doing again. It is time for a dynamic display of confidence which is based not only on accurate information, but also the correct understanding of that information. Yes, now is the time to be who you say you are.

 9
… So we beat on, boats against the current,
borne back ceaselessly into the past…..

F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

This month of double 9 energy emphasizes completion. Yes, this has been an emotional year for you because the events of many years are all coming to a head now. Stop holding all that pain in. Let it out! Let it go. Get it over with. And get everything you’ve been putting off out of the way. Let September’s double 9 energy take you on its healing rollercoaster so that, once and for all, the truth about your past can be buffeted to the surface where you, and possibly others, can finally accept it for what it is.

Go back over your life’s journey and remember everything you’ve done, everyone you’ve met, everywhere you’ve been, everything you’ve lost and gained, given and taken; your thoughts, your feelings, your love, your happiness, your anger, your fears, your passions, your ideas, your laughter, your tears, your satisfaction and your guilt – everything.

Even if you believe you are living fully ‘in the moment’, you will now learn just how cleverly you have mastered the art of denial. Just look at what is happening in the world and you will realize that denial of reality is precisely what is keeping the turmoil going.

The same is true of your own situation. As issues of the past continue to bombard your present-day reality, you will know that continued denial is no longer an option. The past is always present. The past shapes the present, and only your full acceptance of the past – the recent past included – can bring you into a much needed state of ease. As you start to feel more comfortable with your past, you will be able to feel yourself moving into the richness of present time. And from the present, you can point yourself in the direction you want your future to take.

Your past is your truth, your experience. It is what it took to bring you to where you are. It is what it took to make you the person you are, and to inspire you to be the person you are meant to become.

You may not have all the answers, but you can sense that the best is yet to come. Your emotions are not the enemy. Emotional denial is the enemy. Your feelings simply require the freedom to express themselves.

Stop denying that you’re afraid of what might happen in the future. No one can know what the future holds, but we do know that what the present holds is sure to influence it. That is why letting go of the pain or fear you are holding onto is so important now.

You may feel an emptiness inside after this emotional release because of the sheer pressure that has left your body. Guilt may try to fill the space you have created by telling you that it is wrong to be so emotional. Guilt does not want this healing to take place; it simply wants you to feel guilty. Recognize guilt’s wretched voice and move away from it, without denying its existence. Then you will be able to remember that happiness is also an emotion which needs to be expressed as and when it arises.
 

Creative Numerology – Week beginning August 13

Creative Numerology by Christine DeLorey

The weekly forecasts are updated each THURSDAY

Your personal number for 2009 (you keep this number for the entire year) is obtained by adding 2009 to your month and day of birth. For example, if you were born on May 31, add 5 + 3 + 1 + 2 + 0 + 0 + 9 = 20. Keep adding until you reach a single digit. 2 + 0 = 2. In this example, your number for 2009 would be 2. This applies to both your Monthly and Weekly Forecasts. For more numerology options go to creativenumerology.com 

 1: It is futile to be at war with yourself, and yet a fight between your masculine thoughts and your feminine feelings is occurring within your physical body. Recognize how these 3 parts of you are effecting each other. A fourth part – LOVE – is also expanding, making your desire for peace and equality more intense. Realize how much has changed just recently, accept yourself and others exactly as you are now, and take a gentler approach.

 2: This cycle offers the knowledge and power that come with gentleness and humility. Its slow, sensitive, intuitive, feminine vibration is widening your view of reality and reminding you of your strengths. It is time to remember just how much you love life, and that you came into this lifetime to pursue an important goal which is yet to be fulfilled or perhaps even recognized. Let your natural instincts guide you.

3: Your thoughts and feelings have nowhere to go but out, so find a private space in which to express yourself, and to experience the relief, understanding and healing that follow. Then, the gray-looking picture that your life recently became will get its color back and start to vibrate with realism and hope. The purpose of this trip along the rivers of past unhappiness is to rescue your child-like innocence which became lost and forgotten in the passage of time.

4: How and what you communicate in this cycle can alter your course considerably. Deal with this matter sensitively, step-by-step. Get more organized. One obstacle seems more complicated than it really is, so don’t overreact. Look beneath the surface. Consider the details. Without the facts, you will be unable to choose between the options which are now starting to emerge.

5: You will be amazed at what you can gain from observing and appreciating, rather than taking things for granted or pre-judging. Your criticism or lack of knowledge could come flying back at you, so think carefully before you speak. A relationship or joint venture will benefit from mutual respect, a common goal, or an understanding of what one can expect from the other. See yourself as an equal and treat everyone, including yourself, fairly.

6: Reality is the theme, and with freedom, sex, and responsibility also in the cyclical mix, it seems that you are about to “conceive” something significant. Remember that you are responsible for what you create, be it a child, a painting, a situation, or even an atmosphere. And, whatever you create must be allowed to evolve as it needs to, and is able to. Life is urging you to live — and let live.

7: The theme of this cycle is dignity, but we sometimes have to learn this lesson through experiences that make us feel undignified or indignant. Your dignity has taken its fair share of knocks, but what happens now can bring you to a new level of self acceptance. You will like how this feels – free from the pain and pressure of self-doubt, and even self-sabotage. There is work to do! Get organized! Be flexible. Pace yourself sensibly.

8: The emphasis is on choice – and the mistakes we make when we believe our choices are more limited than they really are, or when we ignore our true limitations. A different approach will bring different results. This cycle sheds light on the inaccurate or outdated information on which a previous approach was based. This is not a setback. It is an opportunity. This time, experience is on your side.

9: Rather than struggle to find a way out, focus on bringing whatever you are dealing with to a satisfying conclusion. Notice the extent to which you are distracted by or beholden to others. As family, home, or duty are emphasized, it may be hard to distinguish between responsibility and guilt, or protectiveness and control. Don’t go to extremes. Cooperate, because everyone involved needs some friendly support right now. Peace!

 

 

Creative Numerology – Week beginning August 6

  Creative Numerology by Christine DeLorey

 

 The weekly forecasts are updated each THURSDAY

Your personal number for 2009 (you keep this number for the entire year) is obtained by adding 2009 to your month and day of birth. For example, if you were born on May 31, add 5 + 3 + 1 + 2 + 0 + 0 + 9 = 20. Keep adding until you reach a single digit. 2 + 0 = 2. In this example, your number for 2009 would be 2. This applies to both your Monthly and Weekly Forecasts. For more numerology options go to creativenumerology.com 

1: The health of your relationships is emphasized, as well as your own physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing. Your mind seems to be swinging between the past and the future, making it difficult to stay in present time. The extremes of your life do exist, but the balance you need has nothing to do with time – or how others see you – and everything to do with how you really feel inside.

2: A situation needs more time to unfold. Guilt and blame are unnecessary. Remember that intuition does not come directly from your mind, but from what your feelings and senses communicate to your mind. Dispense with all that needless distraction, feel your feelings, listen to your thoughts, and realize just how cluttered your mind has become in an effort to keep the truth out.

3: Focus on finances, career, and your personal power in the world. Do not demand attention or strongly exert your authority. Accurate information is needed, along with your accurate understanding of it. Appreciate the contribution others are making, or could make. Be friendly. Be thoughtful. Those feelings of being ‘tested’ or ‘on display’ are the result of unnecessary self consciousness.

4: Only pride (a form of fear), or guilt (a judgment you have made against yourself), can prevent you from experiencing the relief that this cycle offers. Communication is emphasized, but any form of criticism can trigger deep emotions which you would do well to express privately. But if you simply have to let it all out in front of others, this may be the catalyst that brings the whole thing to a head.

5: If you feel trapped, seek a new approach that allows you to proceed on your own terms. This means making decisions that originate from you. Originality, individuality and the courage to try different things are the keys to a successful, albeit hardworking cycle in which freedom and responsibility need no longer be at odds with each other. Strive for independence, but do so intelligently.

6: Tolerance is simply the denial of the feelings that a situation triggers, and can leave you holding inwardly the fear, pain or anger you find so hard to express outwardly. Controlling your feelings does not make peace, it just covers up the war going on inside. The emotional openness and peaceful intent that this cycle emphasizes will give you a much clearer idea of how to proceed from here.

7: This cycle emphasizes the laws of cause and effect. The truth is trying to push its way through some clever illusions and deceptions. So, avoid hearsay and don’t jump to conclusions. Feel your reality with all your senses. There is no need to be defensive – or offensive. With the firm intent to get to the truth, you will be able to make decisions that are in your own best interests.

8: Prioritize and get organized. Look at life exactly as it is, with all its problems, potentials, and blessings. Look for ways to transform your reality and keep yourself secure. Act responsibly and effectively. Despite seeming contradictions, your personal power is on the rise, and is heightening your ability to FEEL and sense. As a result, your ability to understand (intelligence) is expanding, too.

9: It’s time to end old behaviors or circumstances which you once believed were normal. That old phase is over and what used to be the norm for you is now the norm of others. This shift will enable you to make constructive use of time, resources and past experience. Don’t be distracted by trivia, don’t be afraid of new and unusual ideas, help where you can and rest when you want to.
