divider2Welcome to 2017! Your Personal Month forecast CHANGES in 2017 for the 1 Universal Year.

Find your Personal Year Number for 2017

• Take your birth date (for example): 3/24/1984
• Now replace the year you were born with the current year: 3/24/2017
• Now add those numbers together like a long addition math problem:
3 + 2 + 4 + 2 + 0 + 1 + 7 = 19
• Digit down to a single-digit number, so keep adding: 1+9= 10; 1+0= 1
• If this were your birthday, you’re experiencing an “1” Personal Year in 2017



Did last year feel like a constant transition? In numerology, 2016 was a 9 Universal Year—the end of a long numerological cycle. 2017 brings the 1 Universal Year: the beginning of a new cycle.

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


July is one of your two most dynamic months in the entire year—the other is September if you’d like to pencil that into your calendar. It’s a clarifying push month where you’ll feel energized to move forward with power and persuasion. Thinking business and in business-like terms will be beneficial as you prime yourself for unparalleled achievement. Action is the theme for July. Understand that you’ll be required to step into your sense of self-confidence and personal power. It’s time for strong and decisive moves forward—possibly on July 2nd or 9th—most likely in relation to business or financial matters. Understand also that you may still feel a strain around money issues, yet know when you focus—and are an efficient and good manager and organizer—all things open up for you now. This is also a great month to work with property matters—whether it’s time to buy, sell, refinance or invest. There could be some excellent financial benefits, albeit not showing up in your pocket immediately. Use the energy of the month to launch, activate, and up-level whatever you’ve been putting your heart and soul into the year thus far.

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

July’s a “cleaning house” month on several fronts. This is the time to finally release an old association, activity or relationship that has outworn its usefulness. You’ll suddenly realize that the effort you’ve been putting into sustaining it has been well spent, and now you can give yourself permission to say goodbye. This can be a relationship, project, or even just a way of reacting to a particular reoccurring issue. With that scenario, this could be the time where you finally reconfigure the way you continue to deal with your inept boss, your meddling sister, or any other person with whom you have a repeating pattern of difficulty. Think of July as a time to pamper and regenerate. Get ready to feel lighter and have more time to actually devote to yourself—and your sense of enjoyment and personal expression. When you close this door with decisiveness, you can recalibrate and set your sights on what’s ahead, rather than be constantly attempting to fix or make allowances for what is lingering or has passed. The trick right now is in asking for guidance, knowing how to ask for what you want, and then allowing it into your world. It’s all at your fingertips.

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


A wave of a new feel-good direction comes in to play in July. That uneasy feeling that you have to wait for the right time or for that right moment has now evaporated. New opportunities open up around July 7. Yet also understand that the way in which you want to work with them or incorporate them into your life may feel somewhat indefinite if not downright uncertain. Chances are it’s necessary to step away from enabling a relationship—whether it’s related to business or family. You’ll find that you can open some doors in your own life that you wouldn’t be available to walk through if you were too preoccupied with taking care of someone else’s business. This is the month to have faith in yourself and in your relationship with the universe. Stand up for yourself gently, yet boldly. You also might be feeling a bit fatigued energetically right now, so be sure to devote some time for self-care. Take that hike, schedule the massage, decline refined sugar, go to bed early. Whatever it takes to revive and rejuvenate your mind, body and spirit. This might be a great time for an extended trip if you can manage it. Your 3 Personal Year is optimal for travel and expanding your sense of yourself by experiencing other people, other cultures, and spreading your wings. This can also be a turn-around relationship month where you begin to reap the benefits of all that practice you’ve been having with expressing and communicating your emotions.

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


July is a turning point. Although it might not feel like it—you won’t be able to see how important it is for you until you look back with hindsight in a few months—or maybe even at some point next year. Temporary delays that you hadn’t expected may hold up several ventures between July 9th and 20th. Help keep things moving, yet don’t force matters. The more you push, the more frustrated you’ll get. Just keep this in the back of your mind—even though you’ll feel like the world is conspiring against you. Actually, the delays are re-situating the timing involved to work out with much better ultimate success. July is also a Master Number 11 month, so there’s intensity surrounding virtually everything. New insights gained now may turn out to be of considerable importance and can make a difference in your trajectory for the rest of the year. The number 11 is all about spiritual illumination. Look for synchronicities, be open for messages, and tap into your intuition. On or about July 18th, allow some time for meditation, contemplation, or spiritual studies.

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


Did someone say vacay? No matter how hard you try, digging into something really serious in July might elude you. From July 2 through the 20th, express joyful creativity as you participate in unusual, unique, or unexpected experiences that land in your world. It’s also a time for fun and frolic with old and new friends. Say yes to parties and other social gatherings. Enjoy your family, and allow time for special activities with children, particularly around July 11th or 18th. Within all this activity, there are important inspirational ideas or connections with new people that’ll lead to something positive in your future—it could be a romance or even a new job opportunity. Be open to the new and the unexpected. If you’re attached, you can use the energy of July to bring a little sexy back into your relationship. Yet if you can carve out some travel in July, please do! Even if you have to work out a staycation at home, do it with gusto. Of course work needs to get done, but make a concerted effort to devote time for fun, rest and relaxation. Both the energies of the 3 and the 5 offer up some fun and adventure if you’re up for it.

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


July is a practical month. As if this whole year hasn’t been filled with enough duty as is, right? Some of last month’s lighter activities may spill over into the beginning of July. Yet know that from July 3rd to 18th, there may be a good deal of responsibility for you to take care of, primarily related to your home and family. Be ready to provide a bit of comfort for people in your life. Remember that simply being a non-distracted and focused listener is all that’s needed. You’ll be tempted to fix it or to provide “the” answer, and yet that’s not what it’s all about. Just listen. It’s that simple. July demands that you get organized, create your punch-list, and getter’ done. No more pushing it off until next week. It is next week! You’ll need to put some good management in place and be economical about your expenditures. It’s time to secure your foundations—both literally and metaphorically. Just know that a solid plan followed up by hard work brings great results. The satisfaction of a job well done will be your reward. So get down to it. Also know that legal or financial matters may need some attention.

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


July feels like a welcome jolt of energy after a rather arduous June. Even though you’ll continue with the underlying theme of contemplation, study and inner reflection, July offers a welcome respite from the somewhat serious nature of the year. Give yourself a “hall pass” to spend part of July by yourself with contemplative activities. This may come to fruition as travel with a “learning” focus to it—perhaps an actual sabbatical. Yet you’re also feeling a bit restless and—let’s face it—somewhat discontent at times, almost like you’ve been wearing that itchy sweater from the 5th grade for far too long. So 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 emotional breakthroughs. At this time, you could very well be exploring significant new directions that interest you or you may be planning to work on some of your undeveloped (yet pressing) talents. Grab the “freedom ring” this month, because freedom is your theme for July. Shake it up a bit. Go for something unexpected. Variety is the spice for your life right now, so don’t go for the same ole’, same ole’. You’ll feel a need for more freedom and will ache for some variety from your given routine.

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


July offers you a bit more in the responsibility realm. There are some adjustments to be made and some sort of problem to be solved in July. Remember that honey goes down better than carbolic acid, so keep your interactions on the sweet side. Make sure to take care of any commercial or financial matters related to your various enterprises, particularly around July 9. Step up and resolve any legal or insurance problems related to your home. This is the time to commit to getting some construction or remodeling work done around the house. Proper care and maintenance—your time is now. You’ll feel as though there’s a conflict between your business and domestic chores during the week of July 14, yet no shirking allowed! This is the perfect opportunity to actually ask other family members—namely your significant other and/or children, or close friends—to pitch in and help with the work. Make sure to allow enough time with your family, whatever “family” means to you. Your good humor and positive attitude will go a long way this month. Whistle while you work and you’ll get stellar results.

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


Even though it may feel absolutely awkward, July is a sabbatical month for you. You’ll want to spend time alone this month, particularly between July 9th and 18th. You’re at the mid-point in your 9 Personal Year, which is all about completions and letting go. “Surrender” is the theme. More importantly—and this is a challenge—it’s the time to close out situations and relationships that need to be terminated because they’re hampering your progress. Be prepared to let go if a project, person, or interest if it’s drifting away or has simply become outgrown or outdated in your life. Allow yourself to experience the strong feelings you have to face on or about July 11th or 27th. This is a perfect time to begin to make plans for starting new projects or experiences for the beginning of next year. Yet you must move gently with yourself here, because frankly, many things in your life aren’t massively clear or super-defined right now. In fact, the frustration you might be feeling as you hover around in limbo could very well be getting to you. You might even be feeling slightly wacky right about now—wondering which way to turn? How to focus? What to spend energy on and what to cast aside? You’ll find that if you push yourself too hard this month, you’ll end up paying a price for it. Rest. See if you can unplug for a bit throughout the month.
