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 MARCH 2016 NUMEROLOGY FORECAST
If you’re having a 1 Personal Year
March is a 4 Month:
Since this is a big year of new beginnings, March demands that you be in tip-top shape, both personally and professionally. Some of last month’s career opportunities may begin to develop and take shape in an “it’s about time” sort-of way. That significant shift you’ve been looking forward to may also begin in March, but only if it’s accompanied by considerable work. Your old reality is ending and yet your new one hasn’t firmed up quite yet. The work you engage in this month sets the wheels in motion. You’ll need to slow down, take care of details, organize and manage, and embrace the step-by-step process it takes to get ‘er done. You’ll see some of the puzzle pieces start coming together, so it should actually feel quite exciting. This is the time to pull out your best logical and practical hats and wear them all month long. Yet the energy related to the 4 can usher in some overwhelming feelings of limitation. You can turn even the smallest glitch, challenge or issue into a monster whose only mission is to annihilate your dreams, goals and best intentions. Simmer down and act rather than react. Keep your eyes on the prize.
If you’re having a 2 Personal Year
March is an 5 Month:
2016 is a slower, patience-building year all the way around so take advantage of the more frenetic energies that March brings your way—it can offer you a boost and shake things up a bit—in a festive sort of way. You’re likely to meet new and interesting people this month, so make sure to say “yes” to new social invitations that come your way. Since it’s your “us” year, focus on anything having to do with getting together with a group. This is a great time to stretch your wings and get involved in something fun that piques your interest. You may have lost touch with yourself and your sense of playfulness. There’s a chance for travel around March 7 or so. This could be a short jaunt for work or leisure—or a combo. Haul out your carry-on bag and take a break from the daily grind. This month offers opportunities for change and advancement. Focus on lightening up, pursuing some fun, and exploring whatever makes you feel un-caged and free. Your sex appeal will be radiating like a dazzling disco ball. Get your mojo back this month.
If you’re having a 3 Personal Year
March is an 6 Month:
March ushers in plenty of exciting activity during the first week or so—some carried over from last month. Catch your breath, because most of March employs a slower pace. It’s your year for emotional self-expression, too. Overall, March has all the makings of a red-letter month, with an emphasis on family and close friends. Around March 9 or 15 you may find it an opportune time for fun with your own kids—or the children in your life. Even if it’s a stretch, attempt to resolve differences of opinion with parents or other close relatives on or about March 18. A light touch can be extremely helpful. And why not consider a new approach to dealing with some of these persistent family issues? Think outside of your own box. You might be amazed at the way you can clear up chronic misunderstandings and start fresh when you get out of your own way. This is a great month to heat up the fire in your love life. Since you’re feeling the pull of domestic duty, you must consciously and strategically map out a time and place for romance.
If you’re having a 4 Personal Year
March is a 7 Month:
It’s your task to lay the foundation for security and lasting systems for the future. Oh, that always sounds so arduous, doesn’t it? You have plenty of fish to fry in March and it might feel quite serious and introspective. It’s a contemplative time right now. Allow yourself a moment to step out of the fray and regroup. This is the time to begin putting your ideas into concrete form, however that plays out for you: work, family, relationships, health—or perhaps all of the above. You may want to spend a good part of the month contemplating your desires, motives and what you want to see come to fruition. Know that while you might feel a bit low-energy, you’ll still need to buck up and put in the hours. So start your “attitude adjustment” at the get-go. If you kvetch about all the work you have to do, you aren’t going with the flow, and then the demands will get you down! Instead, focus on how great you’ll feel when you see the tangible results of your efforts. It’ll be so worth it.
If you’re having a 5 Personal Year
March is a 8 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
March is a 9 Month:
Remember: This is truly a “duty-filled” year and will test your relationships on a variety of levels. This is often called the “marriage and divorce” year, so know that you’re getting it from all angles. 2016 will press you to dig deep within yourself to make decisions about what stays and what goes. And the month of March will be buzzing with experiences relating to these themes—home, family, duty, responsibility, and relationships. A number of matters that have been pending since the beginning of the year are likely to be resolved in March. March is all about letting go and completions so keep that in mind and lighten your grip on the old stuff that needs to be cast off. If there’s any time to go with the flow, this would be it. Be tolerant and compassionate in both your personal and business dealings, despite the fact that you’ll be feeling a bit off-balance. Clarify your own and others’ feelings and motivations. Make sure the people you’re dealing with feel that they’ve been heard. And make sure that you place yourself in a position to be heard as well.
If you’re having a 7 Personal Year
March is a 1 Month:
The transitions that started in February are likely to be completed this month. There’s a confusion and grief that can certainly be a part of this period of time. Yet know that in March, some of the next chapter is being born. It won’t be totally revealed to you yet, although you may feel slightly more energized and excited about what’s coming up. By March 9 or so, please spend some time by yourself doing something that feels good and as though it’s feeding you from the inside out. Grab any opportunity you can to study or research areas that you’ve been putting off or on hold. Choose to work on intellectual affairs or spiritual matters. March is perfect for meditating, contemplating art or enjoying nature—or simply sharpening your skill set in any way you desire. Any time spent on “internal” work is highly satisfying. The dilemma: how to optimize the energies of the contemplative 7 Personal Year with the independence and initiation of the 1 Personal Month? Ferret out some knowledge-building opportunities. This can be through workshops, online courses, books, joining Meetups or book clubs—anything that plays into knowledge gathering and self-help is perfect right now.
If you’re having an 8 Personal Year
March is a 11/2 Month:
2016 is the year you feel more ambitious and feel a deep desire to better your financial conditions. Yet understand right out of the chute: This isn’t going to be easy-breezy. This year demands your concerted effort, good judgment, and business efficiency. Your caution for March is this: Get ready for delays and heightened emotions—with a spiritually elevated emphasis. Continue to implement your plans, but understand that you’ll experience some temporary delays and unexpected slowdowns. Take it in stride, knowing that the delays will ultimately allow for better timing with projects and plans, even if you can’t really see that right now. Keep it all running as smoothly as you can. It’s time to close your eyes, breathe, and make use of some of the special insights you gained during your contemplative time last year. Since you’ll feel as though you’re walking through tar this month, why not roll with it and find some interesting outlets that you’ll enjoy? Go see a funny movie, head out to mix and mingle with friends, take a cooking class. Read a book for (gasp) fun. Don’t be surprised if you gain unexpected spiritual insights from the most unexpected places.
If you’re having a 9 Personal Year
March is a 3 Month:
March is “self improvement” month for you, so anything you can do that falls into that category, take the time and the plunge. Make a point to engage in special activities with family, friends or a romantic interest. If the opportunity presents itself—particularly during the week of March 20th—take a short vacation. It can be a work/play break, yet the scales need to tip more toward “play.” You might have some opportunities to write, present some of your ideas to a larger audience, or tap into performance and entertaining. You may even have the opportunity for some light travel. You’re moving away from a sense of limbo, so breathe a sigh of relief—March brings a good deal of social activity and opportunities for fun and lightness. Allow yourself to enjoy anything and everything you can derive pleasure from throughout the month. Say a big “yes” to spending time in smaller gatherings with family members or close friends, probably around March 12 or 18.
