Creative Numerology – your journey through the cycles of time
by Christine DeLorey
Your personal number for this year is obtained by adding 2011 to your month and day of birth. For example, if you were born on May 31, add 5+3+1+2+0+1+1 = 13. Keep adding until you reach a single digit. 1+3=4. In this example, your yearly number for 2011 would be 4. You keep this number for the entire year. It is also the number you use to read your monthly and weekly forecasts.

NOTE: No matter which year you happen to be in personally, the whole world is in the 4 year in 2011. (2+0+1+1=4). Therefore, much insight can be gained by reading the 4 forecasts, too.
You never change things by fighting the existing
reality. To change something, build a new model
that makes the existing model obsolete.
You know you cannot continue in the same old way. You can sense that an old reality is ending and a new one is beginning. In order to ease the uncertainty (fear) that threatens to keep you at a standstill, look more closely and honestly at the circumstances that are tying you to the past. The closer you get to your limits, the more you will feel boxed-in and compressed, but this is no time to give up. The 1 year is a time of great change, and it is worth remembering that change seldom occurs as comfortably as we would prefer.
The restrictive elements of March provide an opportunity to experience the positive power of your own Will which is now trying to reduce the pressure by pushing those limits away from you. Commit yourself to hard work and be determined to exert as much effort as the situation requires. Concentrate. And listen to your body when it tells you that it’s time to rest. This month, mistakes can occur through inexperience mixed with a lack of focus. So, stay alert and aware, and also understand that a mistake is not a mistake if you learn something from it.
Form a practical plan of action to protect your overall goals, while honestly assessing whether your current course is any different from the one you have been traveling for the past nine years or more. Be aware of how easily we deceive ourselves into thinking we are doing things differently when, in fact, we have simply found a different way to do the same old thing!
See yourself in a more positive light. Simplify – and you will become more able to take care of your responsibilities. Observe the small details, and where they fit into the larger picture. Clear your life of the material and emotional clutter you have amassed over a long period of time, and which is now preventing you from seeing beyond what you think are your limits.
Your mind is buzzing and churning with diverse and conflicting thoughts. Actually listen to the chaos in your mind – all the different opinions and judgments that are battling for your attention. Then, give your mind a rest – by accepting your present situation exactly as it is. Only then will you be able to get your priorities in the right order. This month, your mind needs periods of complete relaxation, as much as your body does.
Face the facts. Be practical. Put everything in its place. Organize. Clear the decks. Sort it all out, detail by detail. Then observe the walls of what were your limits move away from you. Let your expanded belief in yourself push these boundaries to a place where they can no longer pressure you. Having cleared the strongest barriers of all – your own denials – you will know that if you judge something before you experience it, you have no way of knowing what the experience actually is, or what it has to offer.
You are on unfamiliar ground, but you must take the lead and initiate things you thought could only be done by others. Knock on new doors. Look for ways to break free from your various dependencies. You do not need other people’s approval. Let your feelings tell you what you really want and how to get it. Stop dithering and step forward. See where those first few steps lead. Then, by the end of March, your new understandings will help you to construct a strong foundation on which to build a new reality that reflects who you are now.
I am life that wills to live in the
midst of life that wills to live.
Compromise and acceptance are needed in this month of change, freedom and unexpected developments. Try to understand someone else’s side of the story. A relationship can now be strengthened through sincere and open interaction. A vital change is taking place.
Someone else’s circumstances may provide an opportunity for you to move into a more desirable position. By patiently being there, listening, relating and/or encouraging, you can prevent a problem from escalating or, perhaps, impress others with your ability to step in and help.
Don’t get sucked into the problem itself. Just cooperate where you can. This will enable you to take a fresh look at your own situation through a much wider perspective. Don’t be intimidated by the power that others appear to have, but do be prepared to learn something which can help you steer yourself free of confining circumstances.
If you find yourself thinking “I have no choice“, remember that life, and your potential, extend way beyond your present environment and circumstances. It could be that your view has been too limited. Your own or someone else’s situation should now encourage you to broaden your horizons, and remind you that mistakes are often our best means of learning. However, because we tend to deny our mistakes, we repeat the same error over and over so that positive change is never achieved. Look for a different approach this time and turn a mistake into valuable experience – from which you can actually prosper.
Pay attention to the condition of your body. Recent stresses and strains may be taking a toll. Calm yourself down. Nourish yourself – in every sense of the word. Take care of yourself.
You may be trying to subtly control someone, or it may be you who feels cut off from open expression. Nothing can be achieved until this tension is addressed. Stop taking everything sopersonally and admit to yourself where you have misjudged a situation or denied your role in it.
Your present circumstances are testing and developing your ability to relax and be free in chaotic or even hostile situations. The nature of your intent will determine the quality of your 2 year journey and, of course, peaceful intent will greatly relieve the ongoing jumble of stress in which you currently exist.
Try to be diplomatic, considerate, tolerant, kind, and gentle. Connection is an ongoing theme this year and it does seem that your own wellbeing is directly connected to the wellbeing of others. If one person in your circle is unhappy, this will affect everyone. If there is a battle of wills going on, understand that in this cycle, it is a fight you cannot win. Winning is not the issue. Coexisting peacefully is what this is all about.
The peace of mind you crave can only be achieved by accepting your situation exactly as it is,and by finding more realistic ways to unite with others. Remember, too, that ‘peace of mind’, just like happiness, is never permanent. These beautiful states of being come to us in ‘moments’ which must be cherished as they arise.
Instead of fighting for something you do not have, make the most of what you do have. Cooperate with your environment and the people in it. Only then will you be able to regain your focus. You cannot change others. You can only change your reaction to them. So, relax those high expectations which none of you could live up to anyway. Partnership, teamwork, forgiveness, peaceful intent and, above all, awareness and acceptance of reality, will create a clear road ahead for all concerned.
The solution to the problems of human
relationships is to be found in liberty.
What do you feel when you think of the word “home”? Somewhere in your vision for the future is a place in which you feel a warm and loving sense of both freedom and belonging. If not, you may have overlooked an important aspect of happiness and fulfillment.
This month, you may uncover an unexpected truth about yourself, a loved one, or close associate. You may feel content with this. Or, you may feel that a certain situation or responsibility is preventing you from experiencing any kind of happiness at all.
Something will occur which features duty, the home, spouse, lover, children, family, pet, friend, relative or neighborhood, which enables you to communicate on a new level, to make an important decision, and move closer to personal freedom. No matter what is involved initially, the potential for eventual JOY is enormous, even if it is mixed with feelings of a heavier nature.
Determine which responsibilities are yours and which are not. Are you placing responsibility for your happiness on someone else? Are you holding yourself responsible for someone else’s happiness? Is guilt telling you that you cannot pursue your own needs while someone else is having difficulty with theirs? Are you judging others or allowing them to judge you without considering each others’ individuality and unique circumstances? Are you setting unnecessary rules? Are you living unhappily under someone else’s rules?
Everyone is responsible for creating their own happiness, no matter what their relationship happens to be. Something positive – even miraculous – is happening here, but you must feeland listen to your true feelings – as opposed to your stubbornness – if you are to appreciate the positive potential that lies beneath the surface of your current situation.
Balance is the key. When your feelings are all muddled up together with no separation between what feels good and what does not, eventually nothing feels good at all. This is a chance to finally clear the air!
Disagreements and diversity within a family are part of what it takes to be a family. Otherwise you’ll all be tied together by a fruitless common bond with each one yearning to move in different directions. Although you are connected by the love within your close relationships, each of you is a unique individual who must lead his or her own life and find his or her own happiness.
If you believe that others are holding you back, it is time to speak your mind. But be prepared for an unanticipated response that exposes the part you yourself have played.
Coexisting with people whose experience of life is different from your own is seldom easy. But, now, your willingness to understand them will enable them to better understand you. Of course, understanding someone does not necessarily make them any easier to accept, but whatever transpires in March can leave everyone involved feeling enlightened, inspired or, at least, optimistic that the healing of a particular rift will eventually take place.
As you observe and accept how others choose to live, you will realize that you need to be FREE to make your own choices. One thing is certain: you need your own time, your own space, and your own style if you are to live as you want to live
Knowledge comes, but wisdom lingers.
January brought change. February made it personal. March will clarify what has happened since the beginning of the year and help you figure out what to do next. Meanwhile, go about your life quietly and conscientiously. You have a lot on your plate, and you may have to give one aspect a rest while you focus on another.
Arrange your agenda so that you can spend some time alone, with no distractions. You need to think, contemplate, feel your true feelings, and PLAN your future moves. Be aware thatplanning – not doing – is the main theme of this strange and introspective month.
If you are feeling anxious, understand that your unexpressed feelings are preventing you from recognizing your “higher” identity and, therefore, your true strength. You will see an immediate improvement in your health, attitude, and situation, once you let it all out – especially your fear.
Of course, fear is perfectly natural when you consider the fact that you have no idea where you are and are therefore unsure of where the road ahead will lead. The uncertainty of this cycle can be frustrating and, yet, the only thing life requires of you now is your full presence in it – your awareness of it – and your willingness to learn. You have been lost for longer than you may care to admit, and what you are experiencing now is the acceptance of that fact, the desire to do what is best and, perhaps, the fear that you may not know what ‘best’ actually is.
Slow down. Stop struggling. Face the facts and take each situation as it comes. You have had quite enough of your present circumstances and are realizing that you are capable of creating a much more fulfilling existence for yourself – and to organize your life around creating it.
Appreciate your own company. Ask yourself what you really want to achieve in this precious lifetime of yours. What do you want to be doing – how do you want to be feeling – a year from now; five years from now; ten years from now? Stop what you’re doing and ask yourself:“what is really happening here?” Then wait for the answers to reach your conscious mind. Listen to them. FEEL them. This practical use of your intuition will help you devise specific plans for the future. It may take the words, actions, or circumstances of someone else to open your mind, but only you can answer the questions you are asking at this time.
Reflect, meditate, and analyze. Review the past. Accept the present. Envisage your life not in fragments or segments, but as one continuing journey over which you really do have control. Your present circumstances are a small and temporary part of the whole adventure; a turning point to a brighter future.
Release yourself from that illogical judgment which tells you that you have to produce continuous results in order to be successful. Take your time and look for alternatives instead. If you believe you can’t do something because you don’t know how, learn how. Above all, move away from the guilt which is telling you that you should be doing better than you are. You are doing a lot better than you think!
Never forget that change is a positive force
that is generally for the better, and that life
is a performance for which none of us are
given the opportunity to rehearse.
You cannot reach a new destination if you are afraid to take that first step. This month, there are places to go, people to see, work to do, and unusual possibilities to explore. Commit to efficiency and professionalism. No matter what changes are taking place in your relationships and general circumstances, the current potential for growth is significant.
If your personal power in this world is to reach a higher level, you must first be aware of a power struggle you are engaged in. In order to bring clarity to an area of confusion, abalance of power is needed. This will enable you to reclaim your life as your own. March offers the chance to make a significant move in the direction of your choice. And do remember that choice is what it’s all about this year. In fact, everything in life is a matter of choice, right down to how you treat other people and allow them to treat you. Stay alert. Remember that the most important changes must first take place within.
If you believe that others are holding you back, it is time to release your dependence on them. They may be traveling a different route entirely. A change in one of your relationships is likely and, although it may feel uncomfortable at the time, this is a positive change which cannot help but improve your long-term conditions.
There is at least one burden that you have carried for too long and which needs to be put in perspective. By expressing yourself in a friendly and cooperative way, you will be helping to empower someone else so that you, yourself, can eventually gain more freedom.
In this month of action and high expectation, present yourself with confidence. Don’t be deterred if your plans are interrupted or propelled into an unforeseen direction. Ride it out – see where it leads. Do not judge something before you have fully experienced the feelingsinvolved.
You now have the ability to make things happen to your advantage. Your power to manifest things includes flexibility and attention to detail so that you can see the hidden opportunities as well as the obvious ones.
Another part of your power includes being able to sense avenues of success. To sense is to feel. This is sometimes referred to as emotional intelligence and includes knowing and then doing what must be done for the desired result to materialize. It is perhaps the most important area of learning in which we must all become engaged if we are to regain our freedom in the world. Those in the 5 year now have an amazing chance to not only become aware of valuable information but also to understand its deeper meaning.
Developing resourcefulness is a major part of the 5 year journey. Don’t be defeated by mistakes – learn from them – gain experience from them, especially in matters of business, money, and your own personal standing in the world,. In the wise words of visionary Buckminster Fuller, “…don’t fight forces — use them.” Change those old beliefs that havealways prevented personal progress or satisfaction. Feel the freedom that always follows the release of stubbornness.
The odds are in your favor, so decide what you want and pursue it. Opportunity is everywhere if you are open and alert enough to see it. Act in a serious and businesslike way and, above all, believe in your own capabilities. Take what you want, but know when you have taken something as far as you can take it. Know when you have had or done enough. Know when you are satisfied
One often learns more from ten days of agony
than from ten years of contentment.
An ENDING of some kind will help you to move away from an extreme situation so that a more balanced existence can be experienced. This is the right time – the natural time – for such an ending to occur. Be aware of any obsessive or possessive behavior this month. If it exists anywhere in your life, now is a good time to put an end to it. This is not love. There may be another less apparent aspect of your life which is ready to end. If so, life will bring it to an end for you.
Perhaps you are facing an obstacle which could push you toward some kind of extreme. If so, go into your deepest feelings and accept the reality of everything that is happening to you and whoever else is involved. It is time to let go of a feeling or belief that is keeping you tied to the past. Don’t be afraid of endings. They set you free from the pain of yesterday. But do not deny your feelings about an ending. If you cannot get past the feeling, you will be unable to proceed, no matter how much you deny it exists.
Don’t rush. It takes time, sometimes a great deal of time, to fully experience and heal from the feelings as powerful and as conclusive as those you are likely to feel this month.
March may bring a dramatic situation into your life concerning the home, family member, friend, or a cherished idea, project, or possession. Extreme grief – or extreme happiness – may be experienced. Remember: you are learning the true meaning of love this year, and that love is often hidden beneath erroneous judgments you have made over a long period of time.
Of course, not all endings are traumatic. Some can lift the weight of the world from your shoulders, unless guilt has convinced you that it is wrong to feel this way. Perhaps it is guilt that needs to be ended now, or some other feeling, belief, or attitude that is preventing love from flowing freely.
Notice where unwanted items, circumstances, and memories are cluttering up your life and preventing inner peace. Put an end to these areas of stagnation and start to live by your owndesign. Those feelings of frustration and fear are coming directly from your heart – your heart’s desire to start living fully again, to experience joy and, above all, to feel a true sense of belonging and ‘home’.
This is also a cycle of giving, purely for the sake of the pleasure it creates. But giving is not confined to material or monetary matters. Acceptance, love, fun, laughter, understanding, gratitude, and encouragement are the greatest gifts you can bestow on those around you at this time.
And the greatest gift you can give yourself is that of regaining your sense of individuality and realizing that life does indeed go on – the moment you heal from and let go of what was keeping it at a standstill
To live a creative life, we must
lose our fear of being wrong.
Joseph Chilton Pearce
The nature of the 7 energy is to rise and fall, to ebb and flow. A recent fall or ebb has altered the direction of your life, and one of the things it seems to have given you is an increase of time and space in which you can think, analyze, learn, plan, and heal.
However, only part of you seeks quiet spiritual awareness, while another part wants fast forward movement. Part of you has little interest in materiality, while another wants all the material rewards it can get. The push and pull of your desires is making you aware of your inconsistencies and inner conflicts. Don’t judge yourself for having them! You need to know just how independent or dependent you are; how free or enslaved your Will is; and how much you rely on the participation, opinion, or approval of others. You need to recognize the parts of you that you have been refusing to acknowledge.
The power of your own truth is rising. If you allow it to flow freely, it will enable you to live as you desire – perhaps not immediately – but if you don’t start somewhere, such as now, your goals may never materialize.
What may seem like a distraction is actually a catalyst for a much needed change of pace and focus. March is a time of originality and new beginnings. But the situation is not simple. Much of the healing that needs to occur in you is now being reflected by something that is happening to someone else, or by the emergence of deeply buried memories and feelings. Either way, life is about to take you back to the very beginnings or origins of what you most need to heal. You may be surprised to discover just how much feeling you have ignored, and for how long.
Even when you identify the parts of your past that need healing, the old buried emotion still needs to be accepted, and expressed out of your body. This month offers healing on a very large scale – and you must give the process both the time and acceptance it needs.
It is time to get to know the real you, rather than the ‘pretend’ you. By now, you may be feeling withdrawn, tired, reserved, or secretive. Others may see a strangeness about you and wonder what is happening to you. There is no need to alienate yourself from those who care for you, but if you ignore this month’s introspective agenda, you are likely to have bouts of aggressive or submissive behavior which are unlikely to help you in any way. You may become cynical and pessimistic. You may engage in episodes of egotism and intolerance. Or you may become timid, afraid, and unable to act decisively.
If you believe you already have Free Will, you are very much mistaken. At this time, no one on Earth is free. We are all enslaved to various situations and institutions which cannot survive if we start to really think and feel for ourselves. No one else can give you freedom. It is not theirs to give. Freedom is a state of being which can only come from within, and the same is true of peace. The circumstances of March are offering you a taste of both.
The world is full of magical things patiently
waiting for our wits to grow sharper.
SLOW DOWN. As much as you may feel compelled to do something, this cycle urges you to be patient and bide your time. Your own needs are being taken care of behind the scenes where your impatience cannot damage their potential. March is all about right timing, and this is not the time to push your plans ahead unless it involves playing a cooperative role in some kind of partnership.
Give your wholehearted attention or support to someone or something else instead. The way you respond to others will have a major impact on your overall plans. You will be needing the support of others later in the year, and now is a good time to remember that “what goes around, comes around”.
March provides a preview of what we must all learn in the years ahead with regard to patience, power, freedom, peace, teamwork, partnership, cooperation, intuition, and diplomacy. Try to stay as composed as possible as delays, doubts or time consuming details distract and frustrate you. Your attention to detail and your high sense of priority will not go unnoticed.
The most significant contribution you can make right now is to give others your patience, kindness, and understanding. Their circumstances may be more complex and painful than you imagine. Don’t force your presence or ideas on anyone. Stay in the background. You are here to help, not control.
All individuals are connected to the one large body we call humanity; and humanity is only a part of an even larger entity called life. This month provides a spectacular opportunity to experience this connection for yourself.
Try to adopt an open, relaxed, and attentive frame of mind so that you can recognize and absorb this new intelligence and connect the dots for yourself. Listen carefully and hear what is really being said – or omitted. At some point while you’re cooperating, taking a back seat, tending to details, and putting your own plans on hold, you will realize that until these details are taken care of, you simply cannot proceed anyway.
Someone has entered your life to tell you, or show you, what you most need to know at this time. Or perhaps this person has been around all along. Whatever the case, through the power of patience and the ability to see other sides of the story, a new sense of direction will suddenly emerge. You will know that although the purpose of this month’s events is to take your mind off your goals, it is also to help you clarify them.
What is motivating you? If your goals are based on competition, greed, one-upmanship, revenge, or anything that does not have a peaceful and loving intent, you are unlikely to succeed. Find the love in your heart and allow it to direct you.
No matter how it seems out there, humanity IS evolving from war-like competitiveness toward peaceful and loving connectedness. Doing what we love and loving what we do – doing what we FEEL like doing – is the key to freedom, happiness, and peace on this planet. Of course, this cannot happen until we develop the courage to be free and peaceful within ourselves, and to know that the chaos we are experiencing in the material world right now is nothing more that our own resistance to freedom and peace.
It is hard not to exaggerate
the happiness you haven’t got.
March marks the end of a phase in which you were so easily swayed or hurt by the insensitivity of other people, but don’t be surprised if your own insensitivity becomes an issue, too. This is a time to conclude a situation which is no longer desirable, and this can be an enormous relief if you don’t deny the inevitable feelings that arise when you say farewell to an old friend, habit, or belief.
March triggers nostalgia and longing. Don’t let guilt tell you that you must keep up theappearance of being rigidly in control of your emotions. Guilt’s function is to stop the emotional movement that allows life to flow freely.
You are going over old ground in order to retrieve feelings of happiness that are buried there. But be sure that what you are remembering is not just the appearance of happiness. We can easily deceive ourselves into believing we were happy just because we were able to smile. It is the inner feelings of happiness, and not the pretense, that you must search for now – feelings of true fulfillment, no matter how brief they may have been. If you cannot find old happiness, you will first have to express the layers of sadness that are burying it.
The 9 year is emotional by nature, but it is also very healing and can help you expand your creative ability, stretch your imagination, and see your new potential. It will help you discover a talent you have kept hidden, and to phase out situations that do not contribute to your well-being. Notice the positive responses from others as you find your natural way to communicate.
Friends are a major aspect of this cycle. Perhaps there is an unresolved issue hanging over you. Perhaps a current friendship has lost its sparkle. Perhaps, the nature of a friendship is causing a problem. A friendship may end, or a misunderstanding may be cleared up. Remember, the only approval you need is your own.
Keeping up appearances is a form of fear. It is fear of rejection – fear of how you are perceived by others. Self-acceptance is the only antidote. Accept yourself for who and what you are, and who you were, too. Self acceptance creates a healing inner magnetism which enables you to attract who and what you love, instead of situations and people with whom you have nothing in common. You have to love yourself, or even like yourself, before you can expect others to truly love or like you.
Realize how hard you have been on yourself in the past. What is the worst that can happen if you don’t get your life exactly as you or others think it should be? Answer that, and you will release yourself from the painful grip of guilt that always tells you that you should be doing better than you are. Notice, too, where you may be transferring your own guilt onto others by implying that they should be doing better than they are.
