Hello everyone! Welcome to 2017! Finally I have the forecast done and posted. I apologize for the lateness. Although January is near completion, we have been in the cycle for 2017 for almost 3 months now. How can that be? From my experience of doing many numerology readings, the energy of the cycles starts to change two months prior to the actual date. In this case, the cycle for the calendar year of 2017 began in November 2016 and will conclude in October 2017. When I interpret the numbers according to the calendar, it is about the characteristics associated with the number that has an influence on the collective; in other words it is how the outer world affects our inner world. The calendar year cycle will also touch each individual differently, as the meanings associated with 2017 will energize what areas in your own life are in focus according to your own personal cycle during the same year. For example, 2017 is a #1 year, and let’s say ‘K’ is in a #4 personal year cycle. ‘K’ will have new beginnings and ideas associated with focusing on creating simplicity in their life, fulfilling the need to be better organized because the Universe is responding with new opportunities that requires ‘K’ to be prepared as much as possible. To find out more about this cycle, which also includes intuitive messages, please read on.
*Please note that this article is a long read.*


We are all being influenced by wanting to start afresh. The accompanying photo I used has a telling quote that I feel will be in play for the next 8 years. We will find ourselves focusing on, whether we are ready or not, new times, new ideas and new beginnings. How we were and what has been will not always fit or work anymore. There is a pull to want to break free from the past, to move forward in new directions, to create a new way of life. Many of us have heard within these last few years or more from individuals and/or groups who have said “new times are coming” well now is the dawn of new days. It will be beneficial to open up to trying new ways and thoughts, even if the yes turns out to be a dud or takes time to develop. Be patient and keep moving forward as there will be a tendency to give up too soon as we will want things to happen quickly, to see results right away; basically having to wait and see will be difficult. The analogy I most like to use when explaining the cycles is that it is like planting a garden. Some seeds grow quickly, some will take longer to grow and some will die. It’s about having a variety of seeds to start out with (new ideas/goals) and allowing the process of each plant (each idea/goal) to develop in its’ own time.

Out of all the messages that I am including in this forecast, the one word I hear repeatedly and I would like for each person to remember is EMERGING.  I purposely wrote the word in bold, capital letters as it is how I see the word appearing on a vibrational level. Each of us will experience lessons, trials and triumphs individually and collectively that will influence what is emerging for oneself, the community, the planet. It is truly about finding out who we are and what we want for ourselves during this cycle that sets the tone for the years ahead.

The #1 energy is physical, there is a fiery passion and determination present. There’s an easily excitable energy presence. Some of us will become more independent, some will be more outspoken, some will act more arrogantly. It’s a time of wanting to show what we are made of. A time where actions speak louder than words. There is a feeling of wanting to think of and for oneself more. To start a path of self-discovery. “Who am I? What do I want?” are a few questions many will want to answer. Are you brave and bold enough to try? This is where saying ‘yes’ to as many new opportunities as possible will help determine the unfolding of reaching personal goals and dreams. You never know who you may meet for the first time or what new activity/event you partake in which develops and assists you in discovering both what you do want and don’t want for yourself. Remember that it’s all good. The more initiatives you take in your own life, the more possibilities that show up. Now is not the time to allow fear to win or get in the way. Be strong.

Our inner strengths will be tested, at times ‘pushed to the limit’ to see how far we will stand our ground because the influence of being right, having one’s own way no matter what, are sides that come out of the woodwork. It will have more to do with wanting to control/boss the person/situation/outcome as it isn’t always about what it may be or can be…some people don’t like new ways/opinions/beliefs. It shakes and rattles their world. We can be so hardheaded and stubborn sometimes. Because of this, be aware of confrontations. People will lose their temper more than usual, arguments and physical violence occur more often. We get easily irritated during the #1 cycle. Other peoples actions may bother us more than usual. So things can get heated…literally and figuratively. I’ve noticed that there are more stores selling toy punching bags (for those that grew up in the 70’s you know what I mean as back then it was a Bozo the Clown). I don’t think this is a coincidence. Nowadays they come in a variety of different styles and characters that you fill with air and everytime you punch it, it’s supposed to return standing up. The reason why I am bringing this toy up is I think it would be a good investment as a fun and easy way to release anger and punch something without anyone getting hurt. Or, if that isn’t a good idea for yourself, any kind of physical activity will help. Doing something that will allow you to take out your anger in a safe manner. Afterall, we have human emotions and trying to keep your ‘cool’ at all times during this cycle will not be easy.

The #1 is represented by men. A masculine energy is prevalent whether you are male or female. This can play out in so many different ways, yet we will all notice that men will be in focus often; they headline news, stories and trends this year. The actions of men will have a significant influence on our world during this cycle. My hope is that they find new ways to help others gain independence and strength from whatever holds the individual or group from moving forward. This is a time where we will either see men try to uphold or tear down conventional/traditional beliefs, thoughts, habits. Will more men emerge into new roles and express their true selves? Emerge into something that we haven’t seen or are not accustomed to as it will all be new? There will be those who will try to control and force the role of ‘being a man’ as it always was and possibly meet up with resistance from those that want men to emerge into a new way of being. I’ve noticed that there are more instances of men calling out other men for inappropriate/disrespectful behaviours and attitudes…good examples of men stepping up to the plate by showing acceptance and love in new ways. As far as women go during this cycle, it isn’t that we will be in the background but we will notice any area related to the physical side of ourselves and our lives the most. For example, women will want to be acknowledged for their contributions to society. It will be more about being compensated on a physical level such as equal pay, better benefits. There may be more incidents of women taking physical action for being mistreated and misunderstood such as leading a new movement. Yet society may push back against women by imposing actions that are restrictive to the physical side of life such as prohibiting certain rights. Women will either want to work with or against men as trying to meet half way or in the middle will not be avenues each will want to pursue. There will be much banter between the two sexes. Overall, even though this energy is more masculine, the idea is about individuality and allowing each person to be who they are and/or discover their true self.

This cycle adds up to a #10, which is reduced to a #1. We will have experiences of ups, downs and going all around like a roller coaster. There will be excitable moments, adrenaline rushes, feeling super charged to moments where it all comes down; sinking feelings. The energy behind it all is to become whole, become well-rounded and for things to be able to come full circle during this new time.

The #1 likes to take the lead, be first and take risks. It feels like you are in charge but often it just rushes into decisions without careful thought or feelings. It can be impulsive and explosive. It likes to have things happen right now! Patience is not one of its’ attributes. It will be similar to driving a car; any metaphor associated with this action will apply to areas in one’s life. Where are you headed? What direction are you going in? What drives you? What are you driving at? Are you speeding or cruising through decisions? Are you applying the brakes when necessary, at the last minute or do you crash? These are some of the many examples we could ask ourselves.

When it it comes to choices/decisions, it’ll be interesting to see how many of us will go with their first initial feeling(s) as there is an underlying influence of intuition. In other words, will you have faith in your gut feelings and allow your heart to take the lead? There is a push and pull exchange when it comes to taking action steps this year. As you venture out will you surrender to the unknown or will you try to control the process? Although it is great to ask or confer for advice, are you being influenced by opinions formed by others or are you influenced by your own interpretations? Are you fighting against or fighting for when it comes to your actions? It can be a lonely time. Feeling alone with your causes. Feeling others don’t understand because they are not listening or paying attention carefully. Words often fall on deaf ears during this energy. Again, I repeat, the adage ‘actions speak louder than words’ has more weight now. The masses will be influenced by what is physically happening. If you want others to believe in you or what you have to say, be prepared to show some proof somehow, someway as so many feel disillusioned. People want to see those who are real, authentic and ‘walk their talk’. Passionate about personal beliefs and dreams. Yet, the other side to wanting to witness success stories, are those who want a one solution answer. Striving for one way, one direction and it may go as far as forcing a ‘one-size fits all’ way of being even though in truth there are so many ways to seek the Divine within and around us. There will be times where if we want to start something or start being, we each will have to do it alone. Learning to take the steps on your own, to own up, be your own man or woman. It’s about you, the self. That regardless of all that you already know or begin to learn from, it will come down to you alone to do something about empowering yourself and your life. Focus on starting. It’s more about the beginnings than the outcomes during this year. The interactions of control and surrender engage us often. Are you taking the lead in your own life? Are you being directed by others? Remember there will be incidents where it will be power vs. empower; what side will you choose?

What possibilities are in store for us this year? The following messages that I share (some being in point form) are related to what I sense (see, hear, feel) when I tune into the energy of 2017.

New discoveries are made. Especially in areas related to the environment, nature, religion, spirituality and anything connected to the mysterious side of life. The field of sciences comes up in my view, a broad subject, where each sector tries to individualize their importance, as if these departments don’t always see the relevance in connecting the dots between their areas of study. The word ‘isolation’ is highlighted around them.

Blood comes into focus. This area feels huge in many different ways, it’s as if I can’t say or emphasize this area enough. Anything related to blood work, blood tests and blood shed are in the spotlight. Even sayings that contain and refer to the word blood will be popular such as ‘gets my blood boiling’. New breakthroughs, treatments and illnesses connected to the blood arise. AIDS is in the spotlight again. Organizations related to blood donations and research will garner more attention. For those that have health issues, it feels as though blood tests and blood work will be the best solution to diagnose, to discount and possibly treat the condition of concern. A new discovery related to blood which introduces more questions on the subject of the mysteries of life. Overall, the area of blood feels significant this year.

What is ‘new’ stands out. Innovations, inventions and the interesting are sought out. This can encompass any area and can be about anyone, but especially in regards to what we haven’t seen up to now. Staying with the tried and true doesn’t seem satisfying anymore as we want more excitement and adventure, that would mean going outside comfort zones. “Leap of faith’ is a motto I feel around many. Some choices will be about waiting to see what happens. Trying not to jump to conclusions or be too opinionated. Debating over what is in front of us and coming to be. Boredom sets in, people want more out of life.
I hear popping sounds. Sensing this is literal and metaphoric. Ideas popping into the head, popping in and out of places and taking shots at one another (whether this be via words or physical fights). I also sense explosions so please be careful handling items that can ‘pop’.

The Sun has more relevance this year. A new technology that harnesses or is connected to the Sun’s energy is announced. The subject of heat comes up often. This includes heat and sun stroke. I do want others to be extra cautious as higher than usual incident rates of being burned can occur. Some examples are sunburns, chemical burns, cooking burns. Even being burned by others such as being taken advantage of. Fire safety, including fire departments comes into focus. There may be more fires occurring.

Royal colours will be therapeutic, possibly becoming the colour trends for 2017.

The meaning of life and feeling alive comes up often. I see new groups and individuals surfacing by offering memberships or tools to assist others in finding the spark in one’s life. Be mindful of what you get yourself into. Not everyone will be genuine.

Speeding comes up strongly, especially related to vehicles; higher accident rates. I can’t stress this enough but I hope as many of you can be aware to slow down and be aware of aggressive drivers, especially if they are going fast…best to let them pass you or you turn off somewhere as safely as possibly. Everytime I go out, I feel the energy of speeding accidents occurring frequently and I am not trying to freak anyone out as this message can be positive in preventing tragedies and mishaps. I am going to be repeating this message in every monthly forecast I do for this coming year. SLOW DOWN!

Many centuries ago astrology and numerology were actual sciences and for some time now, not given the credit I feel they fully deserve. However, these areas will become more popular and sought out for explaining and understanding the individual and specific areas that relate to us. (Yeah! Good news for me, being a Numerologist! lol). People will want to see how these subjects can prove who they are and what is coming their way. I am not discounting other Intuitive arts such as mediums or past life healers as the energy is about the general public wanting physical evidence of the connections between the physical and spiritual world. For example wanting proof that the planets and numbers associated with their birthdate can share information about life purpose and meaning.

I am not going to include messages related to politicians and specific countries in this article as I am working on separate pieces dedicated to these areas that I hope to publish soon.

Finally, there is one last message I want to share that holds significance for not only this year but longer than we can imagine. For how many years now do we speak of wanting peace in the world? It seems at times this will not come to be or not in one’s lifetime. So when my Guides shared this with me, I was taken aback: “When humankind makes peace with the animal kingdom, then there will be Peace on Earth.” Take what you feel this means to you and do what feels right for you to start putting this in motion. Do you volunteer and/or support animal shelters? Do you adopt or rescue an animal? Do you help raise awareness? Do you make sure the environment is clean of litter for the animals that live in nature? Do you stop buying products that do animal testing? Do you educate yourself to better the animal world around where you live? There are so many diverse ways to show our support, to do something, on being kind and loving to all animals, to respect nature. So many already have a soft spot and concern for animals, for Mother Earth, for the environment and I thank you for assisting and doing your best to make their world a better place because it affects our human world. For those that work in the intuitive animal communication and shamanism fields, they will be receiving more and more messages to help heal and direct us towards making peace with the animal kingdom. Don’t give up as your guidance will be important. Please keep sharing your wisdom.
For now, this is a small taste of what will come to light for 2017. I write monthly forecasts which will encompass more information and messages as the year progresses. It is my hope that this article has provided some insights that you feel will help empower you.
