We are a few weeks away from ringing in the new year as 2016 is almost upon us yet the energy of this number has already begun in November 2015. Although physically the calendar doesn’t reflect this, we have been easing into the traits and trends of what the value of 2016 means. This is related to cycles, a method that determines what is in focus for individuals based on the present calendar year and their birth month and day, which lasts for one year and begins two months before a person’s birthday. When it is about looking only at the calendar year, such as 2016, the effect it has can range from general to intense depending on what is going on for the person in their own cycle chart. I use the onion example when explaining how the different parts of Numerology play a role in a person’s life. An onion can have anywhere from 10-12 layers, give or take, and in Numerology there are different elements to reading a person’s chart. The core of the onion would be the person’s date of birth, and each layer on top of that would be related from a person’s name to their cycle, until we get to the outer/last layer of the onion which would represent the calendar year cycle. The point I am trying to convey is that although the calendar year cycle is considered important, the vibration is broad-like. It will touch everyone in a general sense and will affect certain areas in each individual’s chart depending in which personal year cycle you are in. For example, 2016 is a #9 year and I am in a #3 year cycle. There will be times during my cycle that I will feel the effects of the #9 that relates to the meaning of the #3 year cycle. Possible scenarios are there may be experiences where I will hear from someone from my childhood , I will have emotions/reminders/memories from my childhood come up, and I may indulge in hobbies/interests from when I was a child (#9 year=the past and #3=childhood). In this article I will explain and interpret what number we are in on a global level, plus share messages that may be possibilities for the population during this cycle.
2016= #9 YEAR: ENDINGS, COMPLETION, LETTING GO, FORGIVENESS, THE PAST, TRUTH & INTEGRITY, THE UNIVERSE
“Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.” WINSTON CHURCHILL
We are now and for most of 2016 into the final phase of the cycles in Numerology. They start at #1 and go up to #9, repeating this process until the end of times. The energy of this number can feel heavy, serious, being burdensome and challenging as it relates to our past and releasing. Ideas, thoughts, beliefs, projects and people from our history come into play often. There are some things that we all would like to leave alone and not bring up again but remember that saying ‘History often has a sense of repeating itself?’ Well look for this expression to have meaning this cycle. History can be about the last 5 minutes to the last 5,000 years, in between and beyond… we will have situations and discussions that are often a reflection of times that have already occurred. This can be a positive as the hope is we will learn the lessons from past decisions and be better for it. Using tools, methods and ideas that are beneficial and have endured the test of time to our advantage. Yet also, there will be encounters that will remind us of our past, even if the people, the places, the time frame are different. Often, we may find ourselves reflecting and reviewing the past, it’ll feel as if we can’t get away from it, but that is one of the lessons of the #9: to forgive and let go, especially with oneself. We each have the free will to choose to be defined or strengthened by our individual pasts. It is advantageous to use this cycle to heal and release past wounds. To realize that what comes to an end is to make room for the new. There are moments when something or someone goes away that it can bring a sense of relief. Any regrets that come up, keep a record of them in a personal journal or notebook as a ‘to do list’ for the future, whether it happens in a matter of moments to years…let them be a guide of new beginnings when the time feels right.
There is often a sense of situations having a ‘stop and go’ effect. This means that issues and matters don’t have a consistent flow and don’t last. What is started comes to a halt, it doesn’t go anywhere, and/or has a lack of momentum. Not ideal for new beginnings or ideas and plans that are introduced for the first time however it is best to fulfill/finish these areas that were started in the years before. Some trends will fizzle out as quickly as they began. Stories, issues, people and anything that has been forgotten will be in the spotlight again. People will get tired of the repetitive, this applies to anything and anyone that has a pattern of being talked about over and over again. Most of us will be looking to those that can take action via words, behaviours and/or plans that bring matters to a conclusion, a sense of resolve. It’s as if we will be fed up with situations that have no end in sight and we want to feel complete. This is where truth and integrity are important. Whether the person is alive, dead, famous, and/or a ‘regular Joe/Jill’, their words and actions will be scrutinized…justifying their merit and having to prove they walk their talk. Is someone else’s truth in line with your truth? Be mindful of who and what you believe in, as what or whom you choose to help guide you will either be a skillful mentor or a destructive amateur. Do not let the drama of others get to you and try not to be so dramatic when it comes to sharing your experiences with others. Everyone has an opinion but are they (and you) being truthful and are they (and you) in their integrity?
The #9 is represented by the masses and the Universe. This includes all beings on our planet and the entire solar system. What takes place during this cycle we will see and feel the outcome(s) on a global level. We are not separated as some have led us to believe. We are all connected and there will be evidence of many instances in how it can only take one person, one moment, one decision to influence large groups of people in particular ways, be it positive or negative. The goal is to encompass unconditional love and acceptance, for everyone and every living thing. This may be exemplified by individuals being victims, victors, gurus or martyrs. There seems to be a struggle for a common good and collective during these times as people will sway from one extreme to the other. There has to be a give and take yet some groups will not give up easily and fight ‘tooth and nail’ for what they believe in even though it may not be in the best interests of everyone. An “I am right” mentality can be detrimental. Those that can empathize and understand another’s struggle will be the ones best equipped to assist those in pain. Remember this is a time to empower each other, not hold power over one another. Because this is also about the Universe, it is possible that news, stories, and proof of life on other planets become apparent. Does this mean we will have visitors, communicate, and/or travel to these places? It could be. Science fiction and outer space will be popular during this time. Other subjects that people will be attracted to is astral travel, channelling, past lives and having many deja-vu experiences. Philosophy, history, religion, distant places (especially locations that have a long history/ancient) will be favored. Also laws that have been discussed over a period of time, that are outdated, and/or related to a larger whole (i.e. laws that affect many countries) will be re-visited. This is a cycle that has an energy of ‘the bigger picture’ so there will be some individuals and groups who are not able to see this vision and try to downplay and stop any movements towards solutions.
I believe areas related to education, healthcare, social services, employment, housing and family will be most affected by the #9 energy. Possible scenarios are ways in which these services are administered, used, and dealt with. How we also relate to these matters will undergo transformations in that we may have to shed certain beliefs, customs and habits as we may discover truths (i.e. what is really going on). These areas will not be the same and laws regulating how business is done in these fields may also be introduced and/or passed. Other possibilities are finding solutions to do better in these industries which could include looking at other countries/world models as answers to ongoing problems (i.e. homelessness, disease, family violence, education). What has been going well or considered as ‘too much of a good thing’ (i.e. real estate market) has a high chance of coming apart…the #9 energy can bring things to an end, whether it is done by a person, a group, a business, government or unexpected sources. What is broken will be highlighted in these subjects and will need to be reviewed in terms of how it serves the population. At times it will be about the expression ‘what goes up must come down’. But please remember that it is to make room for new ways and methods that can be more beneficial to our way of life. Some will struggle with letting go of what has been in place for so long yet it is a teaching tool to show that we as individuals are responsible as much as the other, to not lay blame, bring us together, to be included and expand our ways of doing.
What are some traits and trends that will influence us during the #9 cycle? Read on for the possibilities coming our way and may occur in no particular order:
ENTERTAINMENT: Science-fiction and any stories related to outer space will be popular/dominate in movies, TV shows, books, etc.. Famous people who have been forgotten will make a ‘comeback’. For those that have passed away, there may be a resurgence of interest in projects they have done. Reviving or re-releasing shows, movies and music from years past. Stories that encompass many places and persons (from different countries) will be common, especially overcoming adversity. A year where the entertainment industry shares deeper and darker stories.
WEATHER: Feels like a mixed bag, which isn’t an unusual prediction, as there will be all kinds of weather and disasters…nothing dominating as far as what will be one particular pattern. However, I keep hearing icy over and over again…so my feeling with this is that the weather will produce more icy, wet, sleet conditions, especially this winter and spring. Be careful when travelling (vehicle & on foot) as accidents related to this can happen easily.
HEALTH & WELLNESS: This area will be affected quite a bit. Seeing and feeling that there will be overhauls to health systems in many different countries. Part of it will be related to including a broader vision to a better quality of life, reviewing and reassessing, from the food industry to pharmaceuticals. People wanting to take back their power in regards to what they want for treatments and going against conventional medicine: seeking, incorporating and demanding alternative healing therapies, especially reiki, reflexology, and regression therapies. A sense of going back to methods that use foods as a healing tool. Finding out that regular medicines are not working as well as we thought or anymore. Not wanting any kind of medical treatment may be a popular choice during this cycle as it is also related to death (not only physically, but emotionally, spiritually, etc.). Because death is a subject related to the #9, this topic will be in focus, anywhere from the right to die, to coping with loss, to Near Death Experiences: anything that is about death on any level will be brought up often. There may be more countries that legalize the right to die. News and stories about the truth being revealed in these areas: we will feel lied to and things such as diseases to cures to beauty products will be scrutinized and questioned. I see pharmaceutical companies struggling this coming year. The cosmetic industry will have their share of issues: from recalls to how it is regulated will show up. Ideas and concepts of what beauty is and looks like expanded, including images that are from around the world and a ‘one size fits all’ campaign will not be accepted any longer. Most lawsuits that occur will be related to industries that impact healthcare and beauty. Some people think of health as only physical but during this cycle we will be made more aware and concerned with all parts that make up health and wellness: mental, spiritual, emotional parts plus the things that we do, eat, wear, and so much more are all connected. I feel a couple of major breakthroughs in the medical field, one related to Diabetes, they are closer than what they think. Also be aware of outbreaks/illnesses related to food contaminations happening more than usual.
BUSINESS/EMPLOYMENT/CAREER: Another area that will be impacted greatly, as there may be concern with employment: possibilities of many being without work than originally said, fewer jobs available, and industries tightening their budgets where hours, benefits, bonuses are cut. Rules and regulations revisited, revamped which could include restrictions that benefit employees and/or employers. There could be a high number of strikes and protests. Retirement issues in focus. Work conditions highlighted including locations that engage in poor practices. Manufacturing will be on the decline, shut down, and/or relocated from one country to the next. How business is done on a global level will be reviewed. However industries related to recycling, including how resources and items are reused will be in the forefront of innovation and create excitement in how we move forward on a global level. Recycling will be more popular than ever, which may incorporate how and where our stuff ends up. I feel Russia (see them take ‘centre stage’ energy) will play an important role this coming year as Putin and the country will influence and impact many areas that affect the rest of the world.
LAW AND ORDER: And I am not referring to the TV show. I decided to have a category for this area as the court system will be in focus. Laws that deal with family, work, health and housing are mostly affected. This may be about revisiting and revamping them. Also seeing the broad results of past court decisions. Those responsible for past crimes and crimes of humanity brought to justice. Judges may flex more influence and power. Organizations such as the FBI, Interpol, and all those which have jurisdiction across borders are also in this category as they have influence in many countries: the question will be what will become of them and the role they play. The ironic thing about this category is some people will try to be the judge of matters themselves: this can be played out in many ways, including violence towards specific large groups of people, or causing disorder by their words. I see the subject of judgement coming up often, whether it is via a court case or via social media, the platform will not matter as acceptance will not be easy for some. Expect revolutions in some countries.
EDUCATION: This will be an interesting and difficult year for this area. Keep feeling much will not be the same anymore. Affordability and accessibility will be key issues as all things related to education will be under the microscope. Also what and how subjects are taught will be reviewed. Major budget cuts likely and tempers getting the best of many. Teachers are feeling the pressure, are fed up and this could be the year where they speak their truth about what they experience, see and feel about the system. The organization is broken and more needs to resurface to highlight the direction and goals for its future.
HOUSING: This is a challenging area to speak of as I feel not many people will like what I will have to say about this subject. I will admit that I have been feeling for awhile that the housing industry is going to decline as values are blown out of proportion and there needs to be a restablilization. This may be the year it happens as a reevaluation of the prices may occur. It can also be about building materials, inspections, and costs are reviewed and brought to the attention of the general public. The rental market will be in the spotlight as much needs to be addressed in this department. The homeless issue may be solved this coming year. Rethinking the types of housing (rentals) that accommodates those with low incomes as it is important to include the fact that all deserve a good home base. Another possibility is some will admit to not being able to afford their mortgages and may walk away. A buyer’s market. Whatever may happen, the housing industry is due for an overhaul.
FAMILY: Although we as a society have been experiencing expansions in what family encompasses, this may be about those who want to go back to what they think traditional families are about, even though it is so much more than the ‘home with a white picket fence, a mom, dad and their kids’. So many different scenarios can take place but whatever occurs, the family unit according to values, thoughts, beliefs and structures will experience drama. This may be the time where we want to do better and see the bigger picture of what family truly means and the importance of creating community. Look for seniors and those who have life experiences to be in the spotlight in many ways.
SOCIAL SERVICES/CHARITY: I have these two areas as one as in some sense they have the same goal and meaning. I feel a ‘catch 22’ to what will occur. There will be instances where some charities (international based agencies) will be questioned to what their purpose and accomplishments are, which could have a domino affect to those that are struggling to help those in need. How they administer aid reviewed and possibly revamped. I see a restructuring in these areas and that some will be closed for good. Welfare and services that assist those in need will have to re-think their policies and procedures. A push for people to be and take more responsibility for their choices. The ways we help others through government and social agencies could expire, be exhausted and feel over-extended. People may need to help others by their own accord as these organizations will experience a down-turn in funding.
RELIGION/PHILOSOPHY: Different categories yet they may intertwine in meaning during this year. Religions discussed and their meanings, values and beliefs reflected upon. Either a revival in those seeking solace through religion or those changing their views and not wanting anything to do with it. There could be more instances of causes done in the name of religion. Also The Bible and any other historical document associated with religion and philosophy will be reexamined as more people will want to get to the truth in these matters. Our past beliefs in historical figures, especially those associated with religion and/or spirituality will be debated and a reassessment in who they were, their roles and ways of living coming to light. Regarding today’s present spiritual and religious leaders: their roles becoming more important as populations will seek them for counsel and guidance. Concern with the Dalai Lama as I feel he isn’t doing well and has a challenging year ahead of him. There may also be a resurgence with gurus and those who seek to lead others in the name of….(fill in the blank as there will be many reasons): please be aware of where you place your guidance and trust your instincts. However a great time to explore and be open to different philosophies and spiritual ideas from around the world and from the past. Ancient locations, items and artifacts (can also be associated with archaeology) uncovered/discovered, visited and popular. I will be repeating myself by sharing the topic of death again as this is a part of this category too. Death is so much more than the physical aspect: people will want to know more and re-examine the spiritual and philosophical side of this subject. Yet too many will have a sense of achieving more out of life. This may play out in facing fears or letting go of what no longer serves you or walking away from it all as the adage of ‘You only live once’ becomes a motto for those that want more meaning in their life.
On a final note, my hope for those that read this article is to make the most of 2016 by not trying to get caught up in what is happening around and to you. That when you find yourself feeling overwhelmed with an emotion that causes struggle and concern to remember to release and relax. It may also unfold as a year where some dreams become realized in particular areas in one’s life. Simply put any words that begin with the letters ‘re’ will have meaning in our lives, and that they are presented as opportunities to let go and make room for a better way of life if we choose so.
Be well. Be safe and most of all Be Divine!
