June Numerology: Preparing for the Wild Ride Ahead

2018 has brought us the 11/2 Universal Year, a master number in numerology, the study of the energetics of numbers. Discover how your Personal Year number for 2018 will play out for you in June in our monthly series.

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


 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
June is a 7 Month


This is a dynamic year for you, and you’re being assertive and taking the wheel, taking charge, and seeing many things coming into focus right about now. With that said, many changes and shifts have already occurred this year and even more are en route—so hang on for the ride! By now, several issues you’ve been working on since the first of the year are gaining clarity. With clarity comes direction. With direction comes conviction. With conviction comes change. June presents vital opportunities to take stock of what’s been brewing, and sift through it all with the intent to recalibrate and focus. It’s also time to plan for what you want to happen during the rest of the year. Given that June is a number 7 month for you, understand that—while life continues buzzing around you—any time you can devote to yourself and some internal probing will be well rewarded. This is the month for planning rather than doing. You might find that you schedule more time to unplug; take a short vacation, go on retreat, or carve out your own “staycation” or home retreat. Plenty of me-time is in the cards for June if you can possibly find a way to manage it.

If you’re having a 2 Personal Year
June is an 8 Month


You can enjoy a sense of forward movement in June. This tar-walking time is designed to teach patience. Do you feel frustrated…or are you going with the flow? More accurately, are you using your time to renew and rekindle your relationships, slow down and give more to your love connections (both intimate and family)—and get out there, build partnerships and affiliations either for business, pleasure or both? And if you’re experiencing the Master 11/2 Personal Year, you may be scoffing at the idea of slower. This may not be a slower year for you at all—yet it is still infused with higher illumination that unfolds only when you institute a patient approach and open to the wonders of the small things and to synchronicity—the connections and collusions that are all around you. On June 2 or the 5th, some important affairs—particularly business—will begin to move ahead. June is the time to engage your personal power and financial va-voom. The number 8 amplifies whatever it works with, so June is a month to focus your intentions like a laser beam. Focused intention and follow-through with action is the best course for you in June.

If you’re having a 3 Personal Year
June is a 9 Month


The thing about your 3 Personal Year is this: It’s designed as a fun, joyful, creative year full of socializing and activity. Yet the caveat is: Are you tapping into and using your creativity to the best of your abilities? Are you working with your emotional life in an authentic and expressive way—feeling your feelings and expressing them in a healthy and balanced manner? This is also on your plate for the year, so if these emotion-based issues are a struggle, you might be feeling a bit fed-up or overwhelmed right about now. June accentuates the emotional intensity of the year, and some matters are reaching a peak and also conclusion this month. It’s also likely that you’ll complete the prep for some creative venture. This project—or groundwork for the project—is recalibrating itself so that something new or expanded can come into play. Yet you can’t see that aspect of it quite yet. So instead of feeling great about the reorientation of your project (or relationship), you might feel a sense of un-ease or even fear about what’s going on. A business affair may also end during June—perhaps suddenly or perhaps it’s totally expected. And on top of that, a friendship or association may fall away, possibly around June 9 or the 18th. So June holds out some major opportunities for letting go—shedding people and projects that you’ve outgrown. Consider it “spring cleaning,” and pay attention to how much lighter you’ll feel after you shake it all off.

If you’re having a 4 Personal Year
June is a 1 Month


The dramatic movement that began in April continues to advance and gain momentum in June. Since this is your year of hard work, foundations building, and getting your systems in place, last month may have felt rather disconcerting since it was difficult (if not impossible) to control what was going on. The Universe took over and you were just along for the ride. If you resisted, you must feel exhausted. If you threw up your hands and let go, you’ll start seeing things fall into place—like missing puzzle pieces finally being snapped into the puzzle as a whole. On or about June 16, whatever you’ve been working on will be propelled forward by an unusual experience or a friend who adds some “zing” and much needed input. An issue with the energy of the number 4 (the energy of your year) is that it makes it challenging to be flexible and think outside of your own self-imposed box. You might find that you consciously lift yourself out of your routine this month and explore something new—new ideas, new people, new something. The point is this: In your 4 Personal Year, you may find that you’re making things far too difficult for yourself. Take a risk, step off your beaten path, and you’ll be oh-so pleasantly surprised at the short-cuts and better systems available to you right now—you just aren’t aware that they exist. Yet.

If you’re having a 5 Personal Year
June is an 11/2 Month


This is bound to be an intriguing month. Envision yourself as the eye of the hurricane—a point of stillness in the midst of chaos. And this will feel almost counter-intuitive to you given that your year is all about get-up-and-go, rapid change, and engaging your adventurous spirit. It’s all about timing. June is your time for patience, tact, and diplomacy. Although your endeavors will continue to move ahead, the pace is likely to be slower than it was in May. Just expect some holdups, delays, or even downright halts in your flow. Around June 5 or the 9th, you might find that you need to place yourself in hover-mode for a short time. Don’t push. Accept these temporary delays. So don’t try to speed things up or place a square peg in the proverbial round hole. If you continue to force things, you may unwittingly disrupt your critical cosmic schedule. Good news on the passion front—love and romance is also in the air. Be extremely sensitive in all your personal relations. And speaking of sensitivity—tap into yours and you can really benefit from some inspired and important spiritual insights. If you’re listening to your inner voice, these new ideas and thoughts have the potential to lead you into new directions in your life, particularly on June 18. Overall, June is a month to back off from the go-go-go and take the time to cultivate and enjoy your relationships.

If you’re having a 6 Personal Year
June is a 3 Month


This is a service and duty year for you, no matter now you slice it. This is a time to practice a sense of care and service—for yourself and for others. Usually the year brings in some emotional volatility as well, especially on the home and family front. Numerologists don’t call the 6 Personal Year “the marriage and divorce year” for nothing! May might have felt like a big taffy-pull—slow moving, delays, much-needed patience. Yet the delays you experienced last month have run their course, have you noticed? The changes in your home life that you initiated a few months ago are now moving ahead and beginning to blossom. Some shifts—along with the addition of an imaginative and creative idea or two—will help to get the momentum moving forward. Your other ventures are likely to be moving along at the same time. This is a great month for any sort of self-improvement, artistic creativity, or emotional self-expression. Proceed with caution when it comes to succumbing to gossip and behind-the-back talk, as it’ll only come back to haunt you later. Understand that June brings you some potential opportunities to teach, advise or entertain. If you feel called in this direction, go all in. Any opportunity to bring your unique creativity to the table is a must.

If you’re having a 7 Personal Year
June is a 4 Month


Do you feel your soul calling? If there’s any year where you’ll be feeling as though your soul is calling, knocking, pushing or screaming—it’s 2018. You’ll feel as though your life has a deep and profound resonance for you—from the simplest of interactions to the more complex decisions. It’s an intense spiritual gauntlet you’re riding, if you choose to engage and work on your deepest sense of yourself and commit to your continued personal evolution. Know that June brings you into a more pragmatic state of mind and demands some practicality. This is a month where you’ll be met with a need for some concerted effort and hard work. Plus you’ll be setting up some cornerstones and foundations for future endeavors. Take care of these duties now, but don’t overdo your efforts—your important contemplative activities must be properly tended to and nurtured. Stay on track with your studies and research, despite the fact that you may feel as though you’re wimping out in terms of the work and material matters needing to transpire. Take care of any practical matters, particularly on or around June 4, and firm up the foundations underlying your more significant interests. Since the number 4 often has to do with the material world—including real estate and legal matters—make sure to sign contracts, agreements or other important documents during the week of June 9.

If you’re having an 8 Personal Year
June is a 5 Month


This is your year of achievement. It’s the “reap what you’ve sown” year for you, which can manifest in myriad ways—much of it financial. Yet it’s also a year where personal power is tested and honed, where management and organization are key, and where effort and focus breed ultimate success. It’s the month to take some significant action to expand your horizons or advance your enterprises. Initiate some helpful changes around June 7, or take advantage of some changes begun by others. The number 5 brings in some frenetic energy that can be a welcome respite from the slow-and-steady demands of May. Anything allowing you to collide with new and progressive people and ideas will assist your substantial forward movement for the year. Change is the only constant and you’ll be tested in your ability to embrace change and recalibrate with renewed success. Freedom is your mantra in June and—if you played your cards right and did the foundational work you needed to do in May—you can truly bask in the accomplishment you produce right now. You deserve a break and a respite from all the action and effort you’re putting in. This is a perfect month to schedule a vacation or business trip mixed with some personal time.

If you’re having a 9 Personal Year
June is a 6 Month


Let’s talk about your 9 Personal Year for a moment. By now you’re feeling the intensity, maybe as a slow bubbling deep down inside or perhaps as a huge cosmic slap-in-the-face! Just try to stay focused on the most optimal and positive elements that this year can bring to you. This is a completion—a door closing. With that, there’s a fulfillment of some of your dreams. So this closing door isn’t a “failure.” Instead, it’s a reward for all you’ve done and accomplished during these past eight years. When you step through to the other side of this closing door next year, you’ll have an opening into new opportunities and new interests in your life. June brings some heightened family responsibilities and home-based duties your way. It’s all part of the plan. So don’t overdo and over-give, yet be there and take on your fair share of the responsibilities. The trick this month is to balance your sense of responsibility and service to others with your own needs. Give with healthy boundaries. Ask for help and support when you need it. It’s a great month to tend to your garden or complete that DIY home improvement project.
