divider2 Your Personal Month forecast has CHANGED in 2018 for the 11/2 Universal Year.

To find out your monthly Numerology prediction for 2018, you’ll 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, 2018). Tap into the energy to plan for the month ahead!

Find your Personal Year Number for 2018

• Take your birth date (for example): 3/24/1984
• Now replace the year you were born with the current year: 3/24/2018
• Now add those numbers together like a long addition math problem:
3 + 2 + 4 + 2 + 0 + 1 + 8 = 20
• Digit down to a single-digit number, so keep adding: 2+0= 2
• If this were your birthday, you’re experiencing an “2” Personal Year in 2018.



In numerology, 2017 had marked the beginning of a new numerological cycle with the 1 Universal Year. In 2018, however, we’ve made a major, spiritual shift to the Master Number 11/2 Universal Year.

If you’re having a 1 Personal Year
April is a 5 Month


Expect the unexpected and get ready to make things happen! The combination of the 1 and 5 energies relate to sudden change, adventure, freedom, achievement and progress. Are you ready for some fun after the rather serious hard work that you—hopefully—were engaged in last month? Given that this is a year devoted to asserting your sense of independence, originality and individuality, April should feel really fantastic and energizing. This month holds exciting energy, interesting people, and surprising opportunities. In fact, one of the issues you’re bound to have is that you’ll need to make decisions and perhaps pass on some activities that sound inviting—yet you know you just can’t be at six places at once. Understand that there’s strong potential for a shift or change in your game plan. Chances are you won’t see it coming and it’ll potentially replace or substantially expand upon 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 and 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 a 6 Month


April puts a spotlight on the domestic realm. Go with the flow and bask in the glow. You can enjoy the pleasures of friendship, love and affection all the way down the line—friends, family and your sweetheart. The entire year is devoted to working with others, engaging in group-related activities and nurturing your loving connections. It’s also a year requiring a heightened level of tact, diplomacy and patience. This month there’s a heightened level of responsibility with home and family. Your patience will most likely be tried, so get ready to breathe (ten deep breaths) and put on your diplomat 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 on or about April 18th. If your feelings—and your love interest’s feelings—are honestly communicated, a heightened level of pleasure and connection can be the 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 a 7 Month


April brings conflicting energies to you—so understand it can feel slightly disjointed, if not a bit exasperating. On the one hand, you might feel introspective and a bit low-energy. On the other hand, you can feel invigorated and needing to express, go out, be creative and have fun. So what’s a guy or gal to do in this situation? Just knowing that there’s a reason you’re feeling conflicted is half the battle. Choose to fully engage in one (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 spend part of your time in April socializing, yet you might opt for smaller get-togethers or something more intimate. Between April 9 and the 27th, you’ll also want to spend solo time contemplating or studying with minimal interruption. In particular, you may want to look at the progress you’ve made since the beginning of the year in expressing yourself more fully and creatively. April can bring up issues related to trust. Understand that some spiritual matters may need your attention now, however you personally define that. April is the perfect time to do a spiritual excavation into your own psyche. Since it’s your 3 Personal Year of self-improvement and creative self-expression, the focus is on those very themes. In what ways would you like to improve your communication? Are you living an emotionally authentic life? Do you feel that you’re making use of whatever create outlets bring you joy? This is a great month to do a deep spiritual dive around these questions.

If you’re having a 4 Personal Year
April is an 8 Month


This year is all about getting clear and practical with your goals and setting up the systems that will assist in making it all run smooth as butter. Yet often it feels serious and almost like it’s a thankless task—or as though as soon as you check off one item from your punch-list there are three others to take their place. Remind yourself that what you set in motion this year will make your life easier and more effective for the next five years and beyond. So there is a great deal of satisfaction that can be derived by taking the time and exerting the effort to get clear and put everything in order. April is your springboard month. You can make great strides in your career or business dealings right now. Your ongoing business 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 career and money focused month. That’s good—and also challenging. It can be a nice “cha-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. There’s an infinite—not a finite—supply with your name on it. Yet it takes stepping into your power and taking the steps needed to manifest your goals.

If you’re having a 5 Personal Year
April is a 9 Month


The energy of the year is over-flowing with changing conditions, unexpected shifts, and an underlying need to stretch your personal and professional boundaries. “Freedom” is your keyword for the year and that can mean a lot of different things. Yet underneath it all, you’re evaluating how free you feel in your life, what freedom means to you, and what it might take to get a bit more of it. You can now begin to pursue a different, more progressive course that more closely meets your evolving needs. Understand that this will still bring some discomfort with it—and you might feel dazed and confused along the way. Emotions may run high while certain changes and transitions are in progress. While it’ll feel bumpy, trust that whatever you’ve outgrown needs to be let go right now. That way you’ll have room enough for the new and more useful “stuff” that’s coming into your life this year. The energy of the month has to do with endings. The number 9 brings with it conclusions that require surrender on your part—an openness to definitive change and transformation. April is a time to let go of what you no longer need in order to make space for change to enter.

If you’re having a 6 Personal Year
April is a 1 Month


The time is ripe to initiate some of the important additions or changes related to your family or relationship life. Last month offered you a multitude of opportunities and experiences allowing—or forcing, for lack of a better term—you to let go of certain things you need to say goodbye to. March was all about letting go and endings. April supports the start of new activities or the beginning of a new relationship or partnership, most likely between April 9 and the 27th. Remember that the entire year is all about reviewing your relationships—first with yourself, and then with everyone else in your life. This goes from your most intimate partnerships to friends and colleagues. April is all about initiating something new and really supports you in acting upon 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. 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. Mixed with the overall energy of your 11/2 Universal Year, you’ll feel the intense need to start something fresh and make things happen in the relationship realm.

If you’re having a 7 Personal Year
April is an 11/2 Month


While it may be an internally probing year for you, that doesn’t necessarily mean it won’t be busy. It just means that you’ll need some additional “time-outs” and that 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 one or 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 intuitive 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 directly spiritually related, or whether it’s some additional career training. 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. The collision of the spiritually illuminating Master number 11 with your overall spiritually centered 7 Personal Year makes April a powerful vortex of opportunity for some deep inner work. So take some time to rest and reflect when possible. This is a perfect time to get some energy work, spend more time in meditation or prayer, or any other new age tool for self-care and spiritual growth.

If you’re having an 8 Personal Year
April is a 3 Month


This is your year for tests in personal power and a time to get down to business—both in your private life and your business life. April is important for tapping into you—and anything falling under the auspices of communication and creative self-expression. Even though April is the perfect month for cultivating your artistic impulses, make sure that you don’t go off the chain. The year is designed for you to engage in your 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 and creative approach to tweak your projects. This month provides you with the energy and opportunity to tap into your creativity and apply it to maximize what you’re doing across the board. The energy of the 3 demands that you speak your truth and polish the way you communicate. 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 cultural horizons is right on task. You also might find that you’re able to bring an existing project to new heights when you step back and infuse some lightness and creative ideas to the mix.

If you’re having a 9 Personal Year
April is a 4 Month


April might be feel like a make-it-or-break-it moment when 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 if not self-reflective about the ways in which you’ve been an active participant in where you find yourself right this moment. It’s a busy month with nuts-and-bolts activities that need your attention and your ultimate financial interests to be considered. During the weeks of April 15 or the 24th, another area of arduous effort may involve the foundation of a new interest or endeavor in your personal or professional life. Understand that this isn’t “dreamy time.” Operate with an extremely practical approach and face facts realistically. Focus on good health maintenance and take care of any legal papers, contracts or property matters, particularly those relating to your home. Romance also gets a spotlight, yet you must make sure to prioritize it. Make some “no phone zones” and other decisions that create a romantic atmosphere. Ultimately, April can offer some “back to the future” moments in relation to your family history and how you’d like to move forward with a cleaner slate.
