July Numerolgy Forecast: What’s in Store for Your Life Path?

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 July in our ongoing monthly series.

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
July is an 8 Month:

1July is one of the two most dynamic months in the whole year! (The other is September, so pencil it in on your calendar.) This is a clarifying and energizing month to push forward with power and persuasion in your business and career goals. Action is the theme of the 8 month, so keep in mind you’ll need to step into your confidence and personal power now. You’ll feel a surge of determination that may have been lacking for the past few months (especially during Mars retrograde!)—and a newfound resolve will bolster your self-esteem. Understand that you may still feel a strain around money issues, but know that with focus and efficiency you’ll manage and organize your finances in no time. A venture or project you’ve been working on for a while with significant potential may change or expand around July 18th. You also may find a lucrative business opportunity around July 20th or 29th. It could be a manifestation of something you’ve been contemplating for the past six months. Examine the situation from different angles and—if it’s what you’ve been looking for—make your move. Go with your gut and either act on it, or let it go.

If you’re having a 2 Personal Year
July is a 9 Month:

Get ready to “clean house” this month on several fronts. Now is the time to finally release an old association, activity, or relationship that has outworn its usefulness in your life. You’ll suddenly realize that the effort you’ve been putting in to sustain it has been well spent, and now you can give yourself permission to extract yourself. You’ve done your best—and once July is over, you can move forward with a deep sense of confidence (and relief!) that this part of your life has finally turned a corner. Whether it’s a relationship, a project or even a way of reacting to a recurring issue, you are ready to let go now. In the midst of all this, a few business and personal activities can reach a long awaited conclusion around July 2nd or 9th, opening the door for some unexpected future opportunities. Just keep in mind that July will still feel somewhat unsettling and unclear for you. You can be sure, however, that it’s ripe for releasing what you know must go in order to move forward and on to bigger and better things. Remember that it’s also a 9 Universal Year, so you’ll be feeling the energy of the 9 month doubly. Let go, surrender and embrace the falling away of what’s no longer serving you.

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


A new wave of new direction comes into play this month and it feels oh-so good. Underlying excitement and enthusiasm is likely to permeate your thoughts and actions during a 1 month. The feeling that you have to wait for that right moment is being evaporated and it’s full speed ahead. The time is now! New opportunities open up around July 7th, and will expand the progress of the activities you’ve been developing over the past six months. You could also be feeling a tad fatigued energetically now, so make sure to devote some extra time and effort to self-care. This can be a turnaround month for your closest relationships, if you focus on healthy emotional detachment and speaking your truth. Where is the fun and connection in your most intimate relationship? Be in mind that 2016 is your year for everything in the self-improvement arena. You’re mostly attracted to anything with an inspirational spin. What innate gift or passion do you have that you want to further develop—or even turn into a career? It’s time to get on board the creative self-expression bandwagon.

If you’re having a 4 Personal Year
July is an 11/2 Month:


Last month felt like a swift kick in the pants—but hopefully in a good way! After last month’s flurry of activity and action, you have cosmic permission to slow things down a bit this month. Take a step back and try not to push everything so forcefully. Practice patience with a softer touch, and you’ll get you much further ahead with people and projects now. July is actually a turning point for your 4 Personal Year. Although it really won’t feel like it—you won’t be able to see how important it was for you until you look back with hindsight in a few months—or maybe at some point next year. Temporary delays you hadn’t anticipated may hold up a few ventures between July 9th and 20th. July is also a Master Number 11 month for you, so there will be some intensity surrounding almost everything. 11 is the number of illumination, yet you must slow down just enough to be receptive to the messages and signs it brings to you. On or about July 18th, allow time for meditation, contemplation or spiritual studies. New insights you gain now may turn out to be of considerable importance during the last half of 2016. Be on the lookout for synchronicity, and be sure to tap into your intuition.

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


Did someone say vacay? If there’s a month that’s set up for a light, relaxing and fun vacation, it’s July. No matter how hard you try, digging into something super-serious this month will elude you. And rightly so. July is a month that invites you to take advantage of the myriad situations coming your way—and have fun doing it! From July 2-20, participate in any unusual, unique or unexpected experiences that land in your world with a sense of exhilaration and joy. These experiences are aligned with changes that will lead to new opportunities or will expand some of your ongoing endeavors. The key will be to step out of the status quo and use an imaginative approach to maximize your benefits. Understand that within all of this activity and interaction, there could be an important connection with a new person that will lead to something positive in your future—be it a romance or a new job opportunity. If you’re unattached at the moment, romances—possibly begun last month—will deepen and bring much pleasure and zing! If you’re attached, you can use the energy of July to bring a little sexy back to your relationship.

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


Spoiler alert: July is a very practical month for you. As if this whole year hasn’t already been chockfull with enough “duty” as is, right? For a 6 Personal Years, 2016 is about devotion and responsibility on the home and family fronts—and possibly your work relations as well. The challenge is how to balance yourself in this arena: Not too responsible, not too irresponsible. Some of last month’s lighter activities may spill over into the beginning of July. Be be forewarned that from July 3-18, there may be a good deal of responsibility for you to take care of, primarily in the domestic realm. Your usual home-based duties need attention (as always), yet there’s also some additional work to be done around the house that will demand additional time, energy and (sigh) money. No more pushing it off until “next week.” It’s time to be available when family members, friends, colleagues or close relatives need your help. You may be called upon to provide some assistance with physical tasks, yet know that what people really need from you is a compassionate heart. Be ready to provide comfort for the important people in your life. Remember that simply being a non-distracted and focused listener is what matters most. You’ll be tempted to “fix it,” or provide “the answer”—and yet, all you really need to remember is the importance of staying present. It’s that simple.

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


July will feel like a welcome jolt of energy after what might have felt like a rather arduous June. Though you’ll continue with the underlying theme of contemplation, study and inner reflection, July offers respite from the intensity and somewhat serious nature of your year thus far. Give yourself a “hall pass” to spend part of July by yourself and embrace it. This may come into play as travel with a “learning” focus to it, or perhaps you decide on an actual sabbatical. If you can, try a retreat or some other excursion that could give you both the experience of travel and knowledge to be gleaned. Freedom is your theme for July, so shake it up a bit! Go for something unexpected. Yet you’re also feeling a bit restless and—let’s face it—somewhat discontent at times, but don’t let these feelings derail you. As a matter of fact, use these feelings of unease to engage in some deep self-analysis. You’re at the apex of some real revelations now. It’s the time to take steps to improve the mind—with higher learning or by changing old and worn out thought patterns.

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


July offers a bit more in the responsibility realm. There are still some adjustments to be made and some sort of problem to be solved. Remember to keep your interactions on the sweet side. Although your business ventures are moving right along, there are a few domestic responsibilities that will need attention. Yes, it might feel a bit derailing, but the good news is July is set for carving out time for home, family and friends. They’ll need you to swoop in and help out with certain things—be they tangible or emotional, so make sure to take care of any financial matters related to your various enterprises, particularly around July 9th. Magnetic appeal is associated with the number 6, so don’t be surprised if you find yourself attracting what you might deem as “good luck” right now. Tap in to your visionary abilities and intuition to help move things forward with your business endeavors. Just bring in that lovin’ feeling to everything you engage with and you’ll be unstoppable this month.

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


Even though it may feel totally awkward or even exasperating right now, July is a actually a sabbatical month for you. It’s a favorable time to make plans for starting new projects or experiences for the beginning of next year. Yet you must move gently with yourself here, because many things in your life aren’t massively clear or super-defined right now. In fact the frustration you feel with hovering around in limbo could be starting to get to you. Are you wondering which way to turn? How to focus? What to spend your energy on and what to cast aside? This can be a month where decisions are finally made and also acted upon—or things magically “happen to you” that change your world in a substantial way. If you’ve been tiptoeing around a relationship split, a job shift, an unequivocal decision about a geographical move—or any other life-changing transition, this could very well be the time when certain things start to shake out. You’ll want to spend a good deal of time alone or at least with more “me” time this month, particularly between July 9-8. You’re at the mid-point in your 9 Personal Year, which is all about completions and letting go. “Letting go” is your theme for July, in neon lights.
