Find your Personal Year Number for 2017
• Take your birth date (for example): 3/24/1984
• Now replace the year you were born with the current year: 3/24/2017
• Now add those numbers together like a long addition math problem:
3 + 2 + 4 + 2 + 0 + 1 + 7 = 19
• Digit down to a single-digit number, so keep adding: 1+9= 10; 1+0= 1
• If this were your birthday, you’re experiencing an “1” Personal Year in 2017
YOUR SEPTEMBER 2017 NUMEROLOGY FORECAST
Did last year feel like a constant transition? In numerology, 2016 was a 9 Universal Year—the end of a long numerological cycle. 2017 brings the 1 Universal Year: the beginning of a new cycle.
The energy of your Personal Year intensifies in September. It’s like the crescendo to the long piece of music you’ve been playing all year. One of the fascinating things about numerology—and about math—is that, whenever you add the number 9 to another number, it always reduces to the same number to which the 9 is added. During the month of September (9) everyone is experiencing the same personal month number as their Personal Year number.
So in your 1 Personal Year, in September you’re also in your 1 Personal Month. If you’re experiencing a 2 Personal Year, you’re in your 2 Personal Month, and so on. So you’re doubling the energy of the Personal Year you’ve been navigating the entire year so far, with the energy of your Personal Month. September is a turning point month where you’ll start feeling the “theme” of your next phase starting to knock at your internal door.
If you’re tuned into these energies, you can feel a distinct level of intensity in September and also begin to feel a sense of walking back down the hill (metaphorically speaking) through October, November, and December as you ready yourself for the different energies coming to you in the new year. September holds heightened energy related to the theme of your current personal year. It’s like your “final exam” to see if you’ve been in alignment with the Personal Year lessons you’ve been working with all year long.
If you’re having a 1 Personal Year
September is a 1 Month
Expect lots of important and forward-moving activity in September. If there’s any time that’s ripe for action and moving ahead in a concerted and focused direction, this is it. On September 9 or 16th you could break some barriers with a business prospect or issue that you’ve been working on all year long. The key is in acting upon and emphasizing your creativity and originality. This is notthe time to follow the crowd—this is a month where business is at the forefront and needs to take priority. It’s a push-time for major expansion. And you must blaze forward and take a (calculated) risk. It’ll pay off enormously. Understand that what you set into motion right now is truly setting the foundation for what you’ll be building throughout the next nine years. Yes. Nine. Years. So this is no time to play the game half-heartedly. Hold onto your passionate plans with the end in mind. Use the double energy of your 1 Personal Year and your 1 Personal Month to empower yourself, express your independence and individuality, and take the lead in your life. You’re experiencing the peak of the energy of your 1 Personal Year and now heading down the other side of the mountain, so to speak—into the new energies of the softer, gentler, patience-building number 2. So enjoy and capitalize on all of the new beginnings until the end of the year. Plant wisely and well.
If you’re having a 2 Personal Year
September is an 11/2 Month
The double 2 energy this month will bring a desire for harmony and cascading yourself with as much love and emotional connection as possible. Life moves around you as usual, yet you’ll be tested in your ability to remain detached-yet-loving. Keep this list of words on a piece of paper inside of your wallet. Whip it out and re-read it if you’re feeling slightly overwhelmed: patience, cooperation, partnership, diplomacy, love, emotional sensitivity, and intuition. Those are the key ingredients for you during September. Hopefully you’ve honed the vital skills this year to remain calm and centered in the face of adversity and you’ll continue to tap into it this month. Given that September is a Master Number 11/2 month, be especially open to messages from the universe. When does the universe get your attention? And do you trust the information and act upon it? Around September 23, a new spiritual awareness may add an important piece of insight and further your development in whatever direction you feel you need a nudge. Your intuition is working double-time in September, so take advantage of it. Take some quiet time for yourself. Set an intention to experience at least one sign from the universe every day this month and see what happens. Write down every “hit” you get each day, understanding that the wisdom and answers you seek will ultimately come from within.
If you’re having a 3 Personal Year
September is a 3 Month
Optimism. Expansion. Creativity. Emotional self-expression. You’re getting all of this, plus some, in spades this month. The joyful energy of the 3 is doubly upon you right now, so enjoy every minute of it! If you’re in the groove, you’re relishing every second of it, feeling empowered and vital, energized and living with passionate purpose. If you’re not feeling this sort of elation, then it’s more than likely because of some bouts of self-doubt or unresolved emotional “stuff” that’s being brought up for review. If this is the case, this month needs to be one big accelerated energetic-clearing-therapy-psychic cleanse. The emotional rubber meets the road in September. Within all of this creative soul-searching, remember that September is the time to get out and enjoy life. Know that you might feel one of two ways right now. The energy of the 3 tests your sense of joy, optimism and emotional self-expression. So you can feel elated, empowered, enthusiastic, and confident. Or you can feel defensive, insecure, depressive, and fearful. Or even a volley back and forth. The issue here is in feeling more emotionally sensitive and vulnerable. And so sometimes you can experience all of these feelings within a 24-hour time span (or let’s be honest, within a two-minute time span!). Up and down, all around. So your challenge is to focus on the happy, joyful, and optimistic. Banish the self-doubt! Make room for your own brilliance to manifest itself.
If you’re having a 4 Personal Year
September is a 4 Month
Work is the focus this month—front and center. The double 4 energy of September creates a significant turning point, even though the focus of the change might not be immediately apparent. Just like the past nine months, it might feel like “really?” On or about September 4, be ready to build or firm up some foundations prior to further development of one or two important enterprises. It’s all about focusing on the work that needs to be completed and tackling everything with the utmost organization and efficiency. Get organized. Make practical down-to-earth choices and maintain a systematic approach to all that needs to get done. More than likely this is a culmination of what you’ve been focused on for most of the year anyway. It just may feel like that last push to the finish line, where you’ve been running a marathon and you feel exhausted and dehydrated and are wondering why the heck you ever thought you wanted to run a marathon in the first place. And yet here you are, in the final stretch and it requires all your stamina to stay with it. By now, if you’ve been working in alignment with the energy of your year, you should already be organized and working on a definable goal. If so, you might now be able to loosen a few of those rules or stipulations and relax just a little bit. The greatest thing about the 4 Personal Year is the enormous feeling of satisfaction when you can step back and see the bigger picture of what you’ve accomplished this year—of a job well done. If you’re playing your cards right, all the hard work you’ve done this year will pay off royally for the next five years and beyond.
If you’re having a 5 Personal Year
September is a 5 Month
Time to put David Bowie’s (may he R.I.P.) “Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes” on repeat. If sudden shifts, unexpected twists and turns, and profound opportunities scare you—then you might want to cover your eyes. Some outside-of-the-box experiences are on tap, particularly around September 9 or 18th. The thing is: You’re faced with the necessity to make changes that have been leading you out of your comfort zone, so perhaps you’ve been putting them off and placing them on the back burner. In September, decisions must be made. Action must be taken. Indecision, be damned! The energy of the 5 (which you’re feeling with double intensity) thrives on constructive change, movement, and the focused manifestation of all things freedom-related. This is your chance to shift your reality to be in more alignment with what you actually want in your life. Although you might feel scattered, your task is to avoid being sidetracked by the bright-and-shiny objects. Focus, focus, and more focus. And yet—cha-cha-cha—this is a month for fun! Your sex appeal can’t be contained in September, so dive in and enjoy the sensual experiences that come your way, particularly enhanced during the week of September 19. A vacation or travel for business or pleasure might come into view around September 25. You’ll be tested in learning how to flow with changing circumstances, embrace the unexpected, and look at life as an adventure. September is the apex for you with the theme of focused and forward moving transformation.
If you’re having a 6 Personal Year
September is a 6 Month
Take the time to step back and enjoy the deep pleasures of love and family on whatever level you can. There’s a potential for you to feel an interesting dichotomy in September—making you feel both grateful and a bit suffocated. If your communication is clear and your feelings expressed openly and honestly, this can be a very special time for everyone involved. The energy of the 6 is about home, family and responsibility, and yet that can manifest in so many non-traditional ways. How have your constructed and created your home base? If your family of origin isn’t stellar, have you invited other important people into your daily life who fill those roles for you in a positive and nurturing way? Gay, straight, married, not married, or any other mix-and-match, this month offers you a warm-and-fuzzy opportunity to really engage with your family of choice. The theme for the month—which you’re experiencing with double intensity—is love, acceptance, service, duty, and responsibility. There may be some intensity around problems to be solved or dealt with in September. Or perhaps you find yourself actually creating problems (oh, darned those old habits!). The energy of the 6 often feels as though it’s floundering around when it doesn’t have a fire to put out. Get yourself in check if you find that to be your M.O. this month. This is also the apex of your “relationship evaluation” year. What’s going to stay and what’s invited to go?
If you’re having a 7 Personal Year
September is a 7 Month
There’s no denying it—you have a particularly strong need to spend some of September on your own or at least with time carved out for yourself. You’re wide open for some powerful messages from your soul. If you’ve been spending time on some private research, study, or solitary creative endeavors, this is the month where you’ll potentially start seeing results. This is the time to fine-tune your efforts. While the energy is moving toward manifesting in the physical world, you’re still not quite there yet. So patience is still required. You have a lot of “stuff” percolating inside of you right now. September ushers in the need to evaluate and coordinate your plans for the future, optimally between September 9 and 27th. And the energy of the 7 is also pushing you to be curious and interested in delving into some specific fields of study. This is still a great year to take a class or seminar that will offer you skills that will ultimately advance your job or career situation. It’s a fine time to go on an actual retreat or travel with a learning focus. Just don’t be surprised if you find yourself preferring to stay home with a good book or to finish your on-line class rather than heading out to the bars. Many people feel that the lessons of the 7 Personal Year often rival the lessons of the 9 Personal Year in self-evaluation and intensity. So be warned—it might not feel light and breezy right now. Yet the core level rewards are indescribable.
If you’re having an 8 Personal Year
September is an 8 Month
You can’t overestimate the important juncture you’re now entering. It’s an important year and an important month to come to terms with your own sense of empowerment in every aspect of your life. It’s time to put your cards on the table and show the world—and yourself—what you’re made of. You’ll be called upon to commandeer every ounce of organization, management, and empowerment you can muster. Some of your business ventures may reach fruition, most likely between September 2 and 18th. September is the month where you can come face-to-face with some great financial rewards, windfalls, or sudden set backs, possibly during the week of September 23. And that’s not all. Around September 11 or 27th, you might be getting a few additional kudos—gains in status and increased personal recognition are also in alignment for you this month. You’ve been working hard all year, so it’s time to stop and bask in your substantial achievements. Appreciate the long-term goals you’ve achieved and the years of work and dedication leading up to them. You’re probably feeling satisfied now and thinking of ways to expand your enterprises. Even though you’re feeling empowered and are struttin’ your stuff right about now, make sure to give the credit that’s due to those who’ve contributed to your successes. And if the year has offered some challenges and struggles that you’re continuing to work on, that’s right in line with the energy of September. It’s still a testing year and September can be a time where you are required to step into the fray and continue to work it with all your power and resolve.
