As we prepare ourselves for the upcoming new year, it is a good idea to focus on goals and align ourselves with our soul’s purpose. One easy guide is through numerology. Numerology is the wisdom of numbers for they are vibrations that affect every aspect of our lives.

This coming year is 2018 ... so if we add all the numbers together we come to eleven, which then reduces down to two. Therefore, the global energies of the year will be all about the number two, and its higher vibrational quality of eleven. Two is all about kindness, balance, tact, equalization and duality. We will all face many challenges in this regard, especially given social media and the harshness of public criticism. In addition to this number we should also calculate our personal year number. This means we add our day and month of our birth to two (this year!) So if you are  born on the first day of the first month, you add the two ones to two making four. FOUR would then be your personal number for 2018. The following year takes you to five, and so on.... Four is ruled by Mercury, the planet of communication, so with a personal year of four we have to look at the three or four times Mercury goes retrograde this coming year.
Here are a very quick overview of the numbers:
1) One deals with strong will, positivity, pure energy. It reflects new beginnings and purity. One represents physical and mental action. If you see a lot of ones in your life it is time to take new action with courage. One is ruled by the Sun, therefore the placement of the sun this year will have profound affects on you.
2) Two is kindness, balance, tact, equalization and duality. It reflects the quiet power of needing to plan. Two beckons us to choose with others, partnerships, both in harmony and in rivalry, communication. It urges us to heal indecision and unite with like minded people. Two is ruled by the Moon, so notice the movements of the moon this year.
3) Three deals with magic, intuition, fecundity and advantage. It invokes expression, versatility and pure joy of creativity. Threes in your life symbolize your need to express yourself creatively. Three also represents new adventures and the assurance of cooperation from others. It is ruled by Mars, the planet of action and passion.
4) Four deals with stability and invokes the grounded nature of things. This includes the four seasons, four directions and four elements. Four represents solidity, calmness and home. A recurrence of four signifies the need to get back to your roots, ground yourself, as well as nurture persistence and endurance. Four is ruled by Mercury so align yourself with the ever moving mercurial planet.
5) Five deals with travel, adventures and motion. Fives can also carry instability and unpredictability, along with huge changes. We are asked to embrace the wonder of life and expect the unexpected. You need to take action and expand your horizons. This number is ruled by Jupiter.
6) Six represents harmony, balance, sincerity, love and truth. It offers us solutions for a calm and gentle year and also asks us to offer compassion, love and forgiveness in all situations. This number is ruled by Venus and so you may also be asked to serve or help others.
7) Seven deals with esoteric matters, including the study of mystery and all kinds of ancient knowledge. It is ruled by Saturn which can urge you to study more and to go deeper into ancient knowledge and wisdom. It can also mean a year of aloneness as you go deeper into your spirituality.
8) Eight deals with business, success and wealth. It is often considered a very lucky year for new wealth or the wealth of new ideas. This number is ruled by Uranus which can bring surprising and sudden changes.
9) Nine brings us to the height of vibrational frequencies. It represents attainment, satisfaction, accomplishment and our success to achieve an influence in our circumstances. Nine asks us to recognise our own internal attributes and extend these abilities out into the world to make a positive difference. It is ruled by Neptune which asks us to reach out into the unknown.
For a deeper picture, look at the movement of the various planets through your personal astrology signs but most importantly live your life in alignment with your number vibration!
Happy 2018!
