Dive into numerology, the study of the energetics of numbers, to find your life path number and how it will play out for you in our monthly series.
To find your monthly Numerology prediction, you have to do a wee bit o’ math to calculate your Personal Year Number—see instructions below—which influences your whole year (from January 1 until December 31). Tap into the energy to plan your month ahead!
READY, SET, CALCULATE:
Find your Personal Year Number for 2016
• Take your birth date (for example): 3/24/1984
• Now replace the year you were born with the current year: 3/24/2016
• Now add those numbers together like a long addition math problem:
3 + 2 + 4 + 2 + 0 + 1 + 6 = 18
• Digit down to a single-digit number, so keep adding: 1+8= 9
• If this were your birthday, you’re experiencing an “9” Personal Year in 2016
YOUR APRIL 2016 NUMEROLOGY FORECAST
If you’re having a 1 Personal Year
April is a 5 Month:
Expect the unexpected and get ready to soar! Both the 1 and 5 energies relate to sudden change, adventure, freedom, achievement, and progress. I hope you’re ready for some fun after the rather serious hard work that you hopefully were engaged in last month. Given that 2016 is a year devoted to asserting your sense of independence, originality, and individuality, April should feel really fantastic. This month holds exciting energy, interesting people, and surprising opportunities. In fact, you’ll need to make decisions and perhaps pass on some activities that sound inviting—you just can’t be in six places at one time. There’s potential for a shift in your game plan. Chances are you won’t see it coming and it will potentially replace what you’ve been focused on for a while. A complete change in your reality is taking place right now and it can feel both exhilarating and somewhat weird or scary. It’s time to open up to new experiences, new people—new everything. The key to the month is openness and focus.
If you’re having a 2 Personal Year
April is an 6 Month:
April brings a focus to the domestic realm. Go with the flow and bask in the glow, enjoying the pleasures of friendship, love, and affection. The entire year is devoted to working with others, sharing, engaging in group-related activities, and nurturing your loving connections. It’s also a year requiring a heightened level of tact and patience. This month brings a heightened level of responsibility with home and family. Your patience will be tried, so get ready to breathe and put on your diplomat’s hat. Consider yourself the mediator and you’ll be able to handle everything with the proper attitude. Romance can add a special “zing” this month, particularly near April 18. If feelings are honestly communicated, a great deal of pleasure and connection can result. If you’re single and ready to mingle, set some intentions to attract someone special into your circle. The energy related to both the 2 (your Personal Year) and the 6 (your Personal Month) is all about love. Get clear about what you want in an intimate relationship and, as Abraham Hicks would say, send out that “rocket of desire” into the Universe and see what happens!
If you’re having a 3 Personal Year
April is an 7 Month:
April brings conflicting energies to you—it can feel slightly disjointed, if not a bit exasperating. On the one hand, you might feel introspective and a bit low-energy. At the same time, you can feel invigorated and needing to express yourself, go out, be creative and have fun. How to handle this contradiction? Just KNOW that there’s a reason you feel conflicted. That’s half the battle. Choose to fully engage in one vibe (quiet study) and then the other (going out for fun). But don’t attempt to multitask and do both at once. You’ll want to socialize, yet you might opt for smaller get-togethers or something more intimate. From April 9-27, spend some time by yourself, contemplating or studying with minimal interruption. Acknowledge the progress you’ve made since the beginning of the year around full and creative self-expression. April can bring up issues related to trust. Spiritual matters may need your attention now—however you personally define that.
If you’re having a 4 Personal Year
April is a 8 Month:
2016 is all about getting clear and practical in your goals and setting up smooth systems. Yet often it feels serious and thankless task. April is your springboard month: Thinking “business” and in business-like terms will be greatly beneficial. You can make strides in your career or professional dealings right now. Your ongoing enterprises should advance around April 9, although a good deal of organization and management is required in order to move things along successfully. This is a financially focused month, which can be challenging but also a nice “ka-ching!” time for you. Yet it’s also NOT a time where money and opportunities just drop out of the sky and into your wallet. Au contraire: You’ve got to work for it and manage it with expert oversight. The payoff? There’s an infinite—not a finite—supply with your name on it. But you must step into your power and do the work to manifest your goals.
If you’re having a 5 Personal Year
April is a 9 Month:
By now, you should be feeling the energy of change and you’ve learned to expect the unexpected. It’s the year to embrace all that’s new and it’s definitely a time for advancement. Even though there’s an element of uncertainty, the month of March is pressuring you to focus on a definite goal and then be resourceful enough to tweak and adjust along the way. BUT at the end of the day, you’ll be required to have something to show for it. This is a clarifying “push” month for you where you’ll feel energized to move forward with power and persuasion. Thinking “business” and in business-like terms will be greatly beneficial as you ready yourself for action and achievement. Action is the theme for the month. You’ll be required to step into your sense of self-confidence and personal power. Give yourself permission to open up to a new direction that can bring you more in the way of personal freedom. You’re meeting new people who are off your beaten path this year, so use it to your advantage. This is a progressive time meant for stretching and enlightening—seeing yourself and the world in a more expansive way.
If you’re having a 6 Personal Year
April is a 1 Month:
The time is ripe to initiate some of the important family additions or changes you’ve been thinking about. Last month allowed—or maybe forced—you to let go of certain things. After a month of endings, April supports new activities or a fresh relationship, most likely between April 9-27. Remember that the entire year of 2016 is all about reviewing your relationships—first with yourself, and then with everyone else in your life. This goes for your most intimate partnerships to friends and colleagues. In April, take initiative and act on your sense of individuality and independence. You might feel a bit torn between doing for others and doing for yourself. It’s a fine line—a delicate balance. And yet when you take care of yourself first in a healthy way, then you can truly take care of others in the best and most productive way possible.
If you’re having a 7 Personal Year
April is a 11/2 Month:
Soul searching? 2016 is an internally probing year for you, but that doesn’t mean it won’t be busy. You’ll just need some additional “time outs” because you’ll be processing ideas, data and experiences—all of it—in a particularly deep and profound manner. You’ll want to spend at least part of your time this month by yourself or with a few close friends. It’s an optimal time for spiritual study or research, as well as development of your intuitive powers. If you’re feeling this urge—and acting on it—you may receive some high-level awareness right now. You also may choose to investigate some intellectual matters. It’s a great time to dive into all kinds of study, whether it’s “spiritually” related or even additional career training. Just know that April isn’t really a “get up and go” time. Whether you realize it or not, you’re expending an inordinate amount of energy with your inner quest. So take some time to rest when possible. This is a perfect month for energy work, spending more time in meditation or prayer, or tapping into self-care and spiritual growth.
If you’re having an 8 Personal Year
April is a 3 Month:
This year will test your personal power. It’s also a time to get down to business—both in your private and your business life. April is important for tapping into you—and anything falling under the auspices of communication and creative self-expression. Cultivate your artistic impulses, but stay grounded. The 8 year is about sound judgment, management and efficiency, so make sure to keep everything on track and on schedule. In order to benefit from all the creative and fun energy April offers, use your imagination to tweak your projects. The energy of April is social and more relaxed than last month—and a welcome lightness to the general intensity of your entire year. It’s a great time to write, attend workshops or seminars, and enjoy some cultural activities. Anything that expands your artistic and personal horizons is right on task.
If you’re having a 9 Personal Year
April is a 4 Month:
April might feel like a wakeup call, where you’re forced to come to terms with your economic situation in a down-to-earth and practical way. Even though this is rarely a fun experience, it’s a wonderful opportunity to rearrange and recalibrate your business and emotional affairs that have needed adjustment for some time now. So roll up those sleeves! It’s is a more serious month for you and will push you to be practical. It’s a busy time with nuts-and-bolts activities that need your attention. Consider your ultimate financial interests now. During the weeks of April 15 and/or 24, another area of arduous effort may involve the foundation of a new love interest or professional endeavor. This isn’t “dreamy time,” so operate with an extremely practical approach and face facts realistically. Focus on maintaining good health and take care of any legal papers, contracts or property matters, particularly those relating to your home. Romance can take the spotlight, but you must make sure to prioritize it. Carve out some “no-phone zones” and other decisions that create a romantic atmosphere.
