November Numerology: Practicing Gratitude and Speaking Your Truth

2018 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 November in our monthly series. 

Our resident numbers 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 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. Now, in 2018, we’ve made a major, spiritual shift to the Master Number 11/2 Universal Year

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


November is a perfect time to enjoy yourself with friends—both large and small get-togethers—so tap into your sense of fun and festivity. The holidays are upon us and there’s no better time to tap into your own pre-jingle bells sense of celebration. If there’s ever a month where you can channel your inner elfin magic or “Host or Hostess With The Mostest” vibe, it’s now. Optimism, communication, and networking are highlighted in November. This is a time to bring your enthusiasm front and center. Focus on bringing joy into your life, as November offers you a wonderful canvas from which to cultivate things large and small where you find a warm-and-fuzzy sense of satisfaction. Even though you’re still feeling the push of pressing work-related issues, know that you can take a few breaks and loosen your tie a bit. You need it. You deserve it! Enjoy the arts in whatever form you love—be it initiating and creating things that are artistic and innovative—or simply by being an admiring audience member. Go to see plays, movies, exhibits, concerts—dance the night away, take a poetry writing course—anything that feeds your creative soul. This is a month where you might feel more emotional and also where you might be offered several prime opportunities to speak your truth. Be direct, compassionate and honest.

If you’re having a 2 Personal Year
November is a 4 Month


It’s all business in November. Yet it’s two different facets of business. You’re still in your year where the business of love and relationships takes the helm. And the month of November brings the number 4 vibe, which brings into play the business of concerted effort, security, and systems building. It’s up to you to take care of the work that has to be done in November—and there’s plenty of it! You’ll need to dip into your organizational skills and work at systematizing or managing either in your work life or your personal life, or most likely both. The upside is that November has the potential to be a pivotal point where you begin to feel a letting go of the delays and stops-and-starts that have made up the whole of the year for you. There may be some legal matters—agreements or contracts—to study or negotiate around November 4. The energy of the 4 brings in home-related activities of all kinds—including old family-of-origin issues—so this may be a theme to be dealt with right now. You may be involved in buying or selling property, possibly even a home of your own, about November 18. Your success resides in taking your time, painstakingly reviewing all documents, and actively engaging in the step-by-step processes that it takes to meet your goals. It’s also a month to do a little TLC with your health. Get the check-up. If you don’t feel you have twenty minutes to meditate, then you need to meditate for an hour. Pace yourself.

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


November brings opportunity for excitement, travel, adventure and creative advancement—and you’ll feel it all intensely. The energy of the month is all about change and freedom. Add that to your emotion-filled social year and you’ve got a lot of frenetic energies in front of you. Challenge yourself to stay grounded. The chances for feeling over-the-top, scattered and impulsive are at a peak now. A little focus goes a long way for you in November. The number 5 is the energy of sudden change and freedom. Keep this in mind because you’ll be offered opportunities to make a distinct and permanent change in your work or domestic life. Now’s the time to make a decision. Important connections and contacts are made through networking and socializing, not by sitting on the couch or hibernating. Put yourself out there: mix and mingle, make social connections. All roads lead to getting out there and being front-and-center. Freedom is your theme for the month. Mixed with the emotional self-expression demanded by your 3 Personal Year, it won’t be surprising if you have a few emotional moments. All in all, this is a turning point time for change and transition. Focus on what you truly want and move toward it with laser-sharp intention.

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


Thanksgiving is your theme for the month. It’s a time for truly and deeply giving thanks and focusing on your attitude of gratitude. Allow yourself to fully focus on home and family this month. When you radiate peace, love, and understanding you’re riding the wave of the optimal energy for November. Enjoy some romantic interludes if possible. Go for the warm and fuzzy feelings you can generate. The focus is also on children—your own, the children in your life, or just children in general. It’s a great time to engage with your own inner child—to investigate and nurture those aspects of yourself that need to be nurtured. The energy of the number 6 focuses on all things domestic and will prod you to take care of any building or remodeling matters or any financial affairs that need clarification or resolution—especially between November 2 and the 11th. You’ll be motivated to achieve more harmony and balance in your home. Perhaps it’s time for a little redecorating, clearing out the closets, donating some of those old items in order to make room for something new and fresh. Make time and bring those close to you even closer. You can find yourself in the role of counselor or sage advisor this month. Slow it down and bear witness to people in your intimate circle. Your wisdom and nurturing will be at a peak.

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


Are you ready to take a spiritual hiatus from your frenetic year? November holds out some time for deep contemplation and slowing down. You’ll feel the urge to spend some time alone, so don’t resist it. Can you plan a little rest and relaxation? A retreat? A moment by yourself? Anything you can do to spend more time in a peaceful environment or out in nature is in perfect synchronicity right now. Self care anyone? Have you been putting off that checkup? Schedule your physical tune-up at your allopathic, naturopathic, or whatever health practices you follow—sometime around November 6. You may also get a nudge to get serious about an exercise regimen or new eating program to start implementing in slow steps so that it has lasting ramifications with your mental, physical and spiritual health. This year has been all about the exploration of the levels of freedom you want to cultivate in your life. How do you balance and integrate freedom and responsibility? The upcoming year brings you a year devoted to responsibility, home and family, and an evaluation of your relationships. Some of that is going to start popping up this month, so be ready to get your feet wet and experience a preview of what’s to come. Chances are that you’ll feel compelled to reflect on a number of significant matters that are bubbling to the surface, particularly between November 9 and the 27th. November promises to open up some deeper levels of inquiry that will carry over into next year.

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


Despite the fact that you might be hankering to slow down and breathe right about now, November won’t be cooperating with you in your desire for downtime. Lucky you—you get two powerful number 8 months this year! Don’t you feel special? February was your first 8 month this year, so November is a push time where you’ll feel energized to move forward with power and purpose. Thinking in business-like terms will be greatly beneficial. There’s a good deal of business to attend to—some of it may relate to your ongoing enterprises and yet the bulk of it centers around family matters. On the down-and-dirty practical end of things, take care of any contracts or agreements related to your home on or about November 5. Iron out any tax or business affairs needing attention during the week of November 9. A family member also may need assistance on some legal or financial matter, probably around November 18. On the more subliminal end of things, this is the time to consolidate long range plans for your future. Understand that the 8 energy operates by knowing what it already has to work with and then expanding the value of it. Does that make sense? This isn’t the month for innovation or throwing something new into the mix. Rather, it’s the time where you can begin to amplify the success of what you’ve already put into place.

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


November is an intriguing month. It’s as though you’ll be able to take a step back and look deeply into the mirror and make healthy, detached decisions about your life. Or alternately, you can feel victimized and frustrated. You might try to convince yourself to keep clinging to what’s no longer working for you. It’s time to pull together the different strands that you’ve been working throughout the year. This month is guided by the energy of the number 9—all about completions, letting go and transitions. You’ll feel a heightened sense of intuition, so make efforts to listen to the subtleties that come at you both internally and externally. Know that your intuitive voice doesn’t speak with as much volume as the practical/brain/earthly voice. So quiet down and listen. A phase of your inner growth that you’ve been working with all year will culminate during the week of November 7. On or about November 16, some spiritual insights that you’ve been working on may finally gel for you and you could receive an aha moment of clarity. There is a possibility for the termination of some important matter or relationship between November 18 and the 27th. This has been a rather long and perhaps arduous year for you overall. You’re being offered opportunities to put some of the relentless pondering and issues of the year to bed, and prepare yourself to “snap out of it” and return with both feet firmly planted on the ground when the new year rolls around.

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


This is an amazingly dynamic month for you. There is so much is coming to fruition! So many rewards you for the concerted effort you’ve put forth this year. Bask in it! Enjoy it. The power you’re feeling right now can’t be surpassed. If you’ve struggled this year, know that you have many opportunities to change directions. If you’ve folded under the weight and pressure of stepping into your power, know that life will provide more moments to step up, to engage, and to succeed. Repetition isn’t a failure—isn’t a learning grid. Every time you repeat something—an unhealthy relationship, an addiction, debilitating lack of confidence, or [fill in the blank]—you’re given opportunities to master what is obviously a life lesson. We’re all repeating things. Be as organized and businesslike as possible in order to make the most of what’s coming your way. As you move ahead with your ongoing projects, recognize that you’re also heading toward a significant transition period coming up in the coming year. With that in mind, you’ll begin feeling that some of your current projects and relationships are likely to be phased out and replaced with very different enterprises heading in completely different directions. Yet don’t jump the gun. This is a dynamic month where you can act upon your sense of individuality and independence in ways you’ve been working toward all year. This is a “new beginnings” month. Write down ideas and feelings that start coming into play. Be honest with yourself. As you make an inventory list, be ready to come back to it in a few months and see what the themes might be for your upcoming transitional 9 Personal Year.

If you’re having a 9 Personal Year
November is an 11/2 Month


Your prescription this month? Slow down. October was a bat outta hades sort of month with a cacophony of completions mixed with dynamic action—enough to make anyone feel a bit dazed or off-balance. Although you may—on one level—be raring to go, November is designed as a relatively quiet month. Resist the urge to race ahead into new terrain that’s not yet ready for you. The emphasis is on the fact that you may very well be ready for it and yet it is not yet ready for you! Patience is the name of the game. And along with that comes opportunities to amp up your intuition and your spiritual growth. Nothing can be forced right now. Given that this is also a Master 11/2 month there will be some moments for real spiritual illumination if you slow down enough to notice them. Yet also know that the double number 1 of the 11 makes for a bit of nervous tension and also a tendency to want to blaze forward with the action the number 1 is known for—all about initiation and getting it done. So the somewhat cruel joke here is this: That kind of bulldozing and running forward will backfire for you right now. So it’ll take some added mindfulness to trust the slower process. Important answers and solutions come through intuition and through channels that have nothing to do with action, activity, or logic.
