Our resident number-guru Felicia Bender, The Practical Numerologist, joins us on AstroStyle every month to give you a new kind of forecast, one that will complement your Monthly Horoscope.

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!


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



If you’re having a 1 Personal Year
February is a 3 Month:


By now the remnants of your 9 Personal Year (2015) are mostly behind you. Onward and upward! February is beckoning you to get social. You have a hall-pass to say “yes” to outings, parties, and get-togethers. In fact, you need to carve out the time in your busy schedule to include yourself in anything that feels like fun. It’s a month devoted to anything that emphasizes happiness. What brings you joy? You’ll have many opportunities to ponder—where’s your “happy place?” Not another person. Not shopping. Not losing weight. Not having that one person say they’re sorry for all the pain they’ve caused you—none of that. It’s you and your perception. It’s you and how you choose to create your reality and cherry-pick your thoughts and beliefs. You may find a new creative direction you’re interested in pursuing sometime around February 11th. The entire month is supporting all aspects of emotional self-expression and creativity, so have at it. Give yourself permission to enjoy yourself, despite the fact that you may feel as though you need to keep your nose to the grindstone.

If you’re having a 2 Personal Year
February is an 4 Month:

How’s 2016 feeling for you so far? I when I say “feeling,” I mean f-e-e-l-i-n-g. It’s a year chock-full of feelings and emotions that’ll bubble up on you when you least expect it. Around February 6th, keep a close watch on your projects and take advantage of any shifts that allow some movement forward. The energy surrounding you in February supports you in getting down to business. Tap into your abilities to be as orderly and systematic as you possibly can and handle matters in a practical and down-to-earth manner. I know this is second nature for some— and for others—not so much. This is your month to make work and organization a priority. You’ll reap the benefits in the months to come, trust me. If you find yourself needing to deal with contracts, agreements or similar legal work, you’ll need to be patient—expect delays and extra negotiations. Make a conscious effort to avoid feeling frustrated and accept interruptions with a mature understanding of the circumstances involved. Know that the more you push, the more of a cluster it’ll become. Let situations work themselves out. Meanwhile, take a gander at your health picture: Need to spend a few more days at the gym? Do it. Go in for that check-up. It’s time. Take care of any health matters in February. Focus on practicalities.

If you’re having a 3 Personal Year
February is an 5 Month:


This is a freewheeling month for you, my friend! Your entire year is devoted to getting more social, digging into your sense of emotional self-expression, and just living a little. Time spent with friends is especially favored for you in February. My daughters used to sing this little song in pre-school: “Make new friends and keep the old. One is silver and the other is gold!” Make it your mantra for February. Get your carry-on luggage ready, too, because there can be exciting opportunities for adventure and travel, potentially around February 7th or 16th. You might surprise yourself and take a spur-of-the-moment overnight or weekend trip. You’re likely to feel freer now than you did at any time last year. 2015 was your “us” year. This is more of a “What am I really feeling?” year. There will probably be so much going on that it may be hard to figure out exactly what you want to do. Understand that you’ll be tempted to plunge into excess, so exercise some caution in that arena. Remember what Oscar Wilde observed: “I can resist everything except temptation.” You’ll be the poster-child for this tag line in February, so make sure you make efforts to place a bit of self-discipline around all the activity.

If you’re having a 4 Personal Year
February is a 6 Month:


2016 is a year for you to set up some systems and foundations that’ll make your life easier and much more productive for the next five years and beyond. So it’s not a year for hitting the snooze button. Put on your hard-hat and get to work. It’s time to sharpen your skill set. Put down a few roots. Get some “foundation” work done, either in your personal life, work life, emotional life, or all of the above. And even though you really are anxious to make progress on your new and long-term endeavors, a number of interruptions will get in your way this month. Around February 3rd or 9th, home and family matters take the front seat, whether it’s convenient for you or not. You might also experience some issues regarding legal, tax or insurance affairs related to your home or other family property during the month of February. Also recognize that some of your relatives do have an interest in you and can potentially even assist you in opening some important doors or making some strategic introductions. Open up your peripheral vision and accept some support and help from family members or family friends. Although it may appear that you’re marking time throughout much of February, a few subtle actions—probably initiated by relatives or close friends—are apt to add up to substantial forward movement.

If you’re having a 5 Personal Year
February is a 7 Month:


Sorry to break it to you, yet I’m betting you’ll feel at odds with yourself most of the month of February. Even though 2016 is a year that’s turbo-charged with excitement, in February you’ll want to spend some time alone. Even if you don’t really realize it, you’ll need to be by yourself to assimilate the important changes from last month and to consider the best ways to implement them and bring them into play. This won’t be like a light bulb moment. Answers and ideas manifest through slow contemplation. If you’re interested in spiritual matters, part of this month—particularly during the week of February 18th—provide great opportunities to meditate and spend added time studying. Although you need time for contemplation during part of February, you’re also feeling a strong sense of restlessness and a need to pursue some of the important matters you’re concerned with and you’ll be eager to get on with the show. Even though you’ll have spurts of wanting to spring into action—if you act impulsively—it’ll be like shooting yourself in the foot. Not quite the desired outcome. Think of February more as a data-collection month. Then you can start determining the most relevant information for your chosen “project,” whatever that may be for you. That can be related to relationships, career—virtually anything that you’re working on in your life. February is all about preparation, not concerted action.

If you’re having a 6 Personal Year
February is a 8 Month:


This is a clarifying “push” month for you where you’ll feel energized to move forward with power. Thinking “business” and in business-like terms will be greatly beneficial as you ready yourself for action and achievement. Around February 2nd or 5th, a new opportunity may come to your attention with unusual potential for your future. Also understand that 2016 is a year focused on family and home, bringing you some added responsibilities in that arena. In some instances, family members may help with business matters or be able to offer helpful financial assistance. On the other hand, be prepared for the interference of some family matters that may conflict with your business enterprises, particularly during the week of February 18th. Just know that you need to tend to your family obligations—don’t abandon them. Remember that 2016 is a year where added domestic responsibilities are the order of the day. So buckle down and take on the additional load with the family—it’s necessary. Adjust your projections and plans so that both business and home/family matters can be dealt with fully. And don’t forget to take some breaks throughout the month—you’ll need to schedule some R & R to keep yourself healthy and your mind sharp.

If you’re having a 7 Personal Year
February is a 9 Month:


2016 is a contemplative year all around. Allow yourself to indulge your impulse to hibernate for a while. Add that to your 9 Personal Month of February and you’re in for some soul searching and demands to let go of some “stuff” in your life that’s been holding you back, or that just has reached an end of its usefulness. You’re undoubtedly feeling the rumblings of an important transition beginning to take place this month, particularly from February 9th on. This can present itself as the termination or loss of a business affair that wasn’t really going anywhere for you. Other conclusions—particularly with friends or colleagues—may be comparatively subtle in their falling away. You may feel as though you’re reaching a place where you can extract yourself from certain people in your life who’re no longer serving you and your best interests. Understand that you’ll potentially feel a strong desire to take some time for yourself—after February 18th it might hit you with the most power. If you can, take time for some solitude—you’ll need the additional downtime to work through some of the either temporary or perhaps permanent “good-byes” you’re working through. Chances are that you can’t chart your course with pinpoint accuracy right now. While it’s obvious that some important shifts are taking place, exactly what they are and what the results and outcomes will be are anything but clear and tidy.

If you’re having an 8 Personal Year
February is a 1 Month:


It’s your time to take action now. Finally! Get some lift-off for your business and career-related ventures. The enterprises you’ve been assessing, exploring, lining up and getting into the chute for the last few months are ready. Some new opportunities ripe with potential may come to your attention sometime around February 7th—as if what you’ve got on your plate isn’t already enough. February marks the genesis of an extremely productive time. You’ll be able to achieve some of your major goals by following through on this month’s activities. That means you have to focus on what you truly want and follow through with action, not wishful thinking. You may need to ready yourself for some recognition and a raise in status along with—surprise (drum roll please)—financial rewards. Know that this is your time to take the initiative. Organize and reorganize. Manage and delegate. Tap into your sense of abundance and poo-poo the voice of scarcity. Expect obstacles—yet adjust any existing conditions standing in your way during the week of February 21st. You’ll be over-focused on work, so make sure you step back and make time for your loved ones. You don’t need to accelerate at full throttle in order to get it all accomplished—you’re playing a long game this year, so pace yourself and think “big picture.”

If you’re having a 9 Personal Year
February is a 11/2 Month:


2016 is a transitional year for you, so you must pace yourself and understand that surrender and right timing is at the helm right now. The month of February brings some fitful movement back and forth. Some projects may be subject to temporary delays, particularly during the week of February 9th. Because of this slowed-down pace, you’re likely to have a good deal of time to spend with your family and close friends. Understand that February is the time for this, so don’t resist. You’ll be very sensitive to the needs and emotions of others, since some of the people you’re dealing with may be edgy or uneasy and decide to take it out on you. (Yikes.) This is an “us” month rather than a “me” month. So give out some lovin’! Mostly, February holds out opportunities for you to make some decisions. It’s all about change and transformation this year and you’ll come face-to-face with your fears—or at least face-to-face with the issues that can no longer be avoided or denied. Remember: 2016 is your year of completions and letting go. And this doesn’t happen overnight—thank god. This will be incremental and can also have a few dramatic endings as well. February’s infused with the energy of the Master Number 11—so special spiritual awareness or awakenings are bound to come into play. Be receptive to change and transformation.
