Find your Personal Year Number for 2015

• Take your birth date (for example): 3/25/1984
• Now replace the year you were born with the current year: 3/25/2015
• Now add those numbers together like a long addition math problem:
3 + 2 + 5 + 2 + 0 + 1 + 5 = 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 2015

If you’re having a 1 Personal Year
August is a 9 Month:


This is a big month in the grand scheme of 2015. August is 4-weeks of endings, wrapped up inside of your entire year of new beginnings.  Can you see the irony already?  It’s time to wrap up and finalize certain situations or a particular phase of your life.  And this won’t be a seamless flow—you’ll have to consider an entirely different route in order to move forward into your expanded existence.  It’s time for decisions. Firm decisions. No wishy-washy “maybe’s” right now.  It’s truly the month to put any mess that’s leftover from last year into the proverbial compost pile. And you’ll also be met with the need to look who you used to be right smack-dab in the eye and forgive/accept/love that person and at the same time, embrace and move into the new you that is certainly being created right now. Be bold in your surrender. Release with definitive action.  Focus instead on creating what’s next.

If you’re having a 2 Personal Year
August is an 1 Month:

August promises to be an intriguing month because it’s a 4-week pass to think about you, you, and you. This year’s been devoted to “us” and other people in your world.  So this is your ticket to navel-gaze and be “selfish.” Meaning:  centered on yourself.  Give to yourself this month as you’ve been giving to others all year.  See how that feels. As the old Alka Seltzer commercial used to say—“Try it, you’ll like it!”  Relish this time of inner reflection that’s focused deeply on this simple yet profound question: “What do I want?”  This is the time to pull out all the stops and be brutally honest with yourself. Chances are you actually know (deep down) what your next steps are in your life’s journey, yet there’s been no better time than right now to call in support from other people in order to begin to manifest your desires.  Hear that? Other people really want to help you—you just need to ask.

If you’re having a 3 Personal Year
August is an 11/2 Month:


Your year has been full of creativity, friends, and emotions.  July was a great launching pad—when new projects came together and “seeds” were planted that you’ll need to nurture and cultivate if you want to see them develop and grow.  With that said, an important task needs to be tied up and put to bed sooner rather than later at the beginning of the month.  When that’s successfully tucked away, you’ll need to take a step back, reevaluate, and breathe.  August is a bit of a “hurry up and wait” month and yet don’t waste any of this precious time on impatience and frustration.  August is designed to be a moment of R & R in your busy year.  It’s a time to reflect on what this year has brought you so far.  Have you been devoted to self-improvement in some manner?  Are you embracing your emotional life and communicating on a different level than before? And since it’s a Master 11 month for you, count on some spiritual insights to present themselves. The 11 represents a doorway—you’ll have some invitations to walk through a few of those doors in August. Are you up for it?

If you’re having a 4 Personal Year
August is a 3 Month:


If you thought that the intensity of 2015 wasn’t going to let up, you’ll be happy to hear that August offers you a tiny oasis within your year of work, work, and more work. Finally, some opportunities for a break in the routine will present itself to you for the taking.  The trick is:  You have to take it!  Don’t keep yourself confined in your own little box—it’s time get out and stretch your legs.  The 3 energy of your month points toward focusing on the lighter side of life.  It’s ripe for getting out and living a little—for social activities, creative endeavors, entertainment.  It’s a great time to carve out a day off (or two) and find some time to recharge your batteries.  If there’s a month marked for a vacation, it’s August. Also note that communication and creative self-expression are at the helm.  Tap into all things creative and see where it takes you.

If you’re having a 5 Personal Year
August is a 4 Month:


This is a year devoted to change—made for adventure and progressive activities, where new and “different” people cross your path and open up your viewfinder.  Undoubtedly you’ve been met with some moments of paralyzing fear and yet – move over crusty ole’ fear-filled thoughts—and get ready for some real and permanent changes.  August might throw a little mud into your spokes, though.  The focus is on concerted work, attending to details, redefining your identity, and spiffing up your reputation.  It’s going to feel like a more serious 4-weeks—and so it is.  Your tasks for the month include eliminating chaos and indecision—and focusing on organization, constructive solutions, and clearly defined goals.  Yes, I know.  Goals.  Clearly defined.  How can you incorporate the freedom that you seek into your daily life?  If there’s ever been a better time to sit with that question, make a list, and put it into your “intention spreadsheet,” August is it.

If you’re having a 6 Personal Year
August is a 5 Month:


Your year has been focused on your home life—fulfilling domestic duties and responsibility across the board. Relationships are under review during this “marriage and divorce” energy—meaning, the year 2015 is running this song on long-play:  “Should I Stay Or Should I Go?”  You’ll be asking yourself:  Who am I and what do I really want in my life? August brings with it a zing of energy and jolt of freedom. There’ll be unexpected developments and surprises for you this month if you let them into your world.  You’ll need to step up and act upon certain things with fearless abandon right now.  And if that’s a normal reaction for you, then you’ll be riding the wave.  If that’s not a normal reaction for you—then you might find yourself squirming a bit.  If there’s a way to take a vacation, a change of scenery would do wonders for you—and your friends or family. This can be a special time to spend with children, especially before they’re heading off to the new school year or into their fall routine. 

If you’re having a 7 Personal Year
August is a 6 Month:


August is a 4-week cycle focused on responsibility, healing, and love.  It’s a month where home and family take center stage.  This can be practical – like cleaning or remodeling.  You may have additional responsibilities with family members – maybe there’s a birthday, a graduation, a wedding, or even an illness.  Perhaps there are deep-seeded issues that are coming to the surface that are begging to be looked at, discussed, noticed, or resolved. Yet understand that the primary energy relates to your internal world rather than your outer existence. The energy of August encourages an exploration of your past – from childhood onward.  And the topic?  Love.  It’s time to study and analyze all that you’ve done in the name of love – and all that has happened to you because of love.  It’s the time to heal and forgive. It’s not the most advantageous time for travel, unless it’s to visit family or fulfill a certain obligation.  Some unexpected family matters – such as legal or financial affairs related to your home – may surface.  It’s all right.  Take it slow and steady. 

If you’re having an 8 Personal Year
August is a 7 Month:


Your 8 Personal Year—mixed with the 8 Universal Year—has you on overdrive.  August is set up as your “burn-out deflector.”  Slow down. It’s the month to stop pushing outward and use your time to reflect inward.  Knowledge is power and August holds out opportunities for you to gather and digest information for an important project.  You’ll want to get to know how every aspect of whatever you’re involved with actually works.  What’s really involved? How do you map it out in a step-by-step manner?  I know you’re feeling the power this year.  Or if not, you’re feeling depleted and defeated. You’ve got to be “in it to win it” right now, so if you’re feeling beleaguered, put on your big boy or big girl pants and join the party.  Don’t be surprised if you’re faced with a battle of wills this month.  Just remember:  You don’t have to show up for every argument you’re invited to.  Speak with clarity and dignity.  Do what you know you must do.  Embrace your power and authority. 

If you’re having a 9 Personal Year
August is a 8 Month:


After the pulled-back energy that July brought to you, August will feel like a welcome jolt.  It’s time for continued focus on business and finances.  Be prepared to take strong, dynamic action when it’s appropriate.  This is also a time where your sense of personal power will be up front and personal.  This month’s energy is all about prosperity and satisfaction—ready yourself to get out there and make the most of it.  Some projects, experiences, or business situations are due for termination or conclusion between August 1st and 9th—yet you’ll need to be actively engaged in finalizing them in order for them to reach their logical conclusion.  Meaning, it just won’t happen all by itself.  You need to be involved in a hands-on way in order to make things happen.
