Dive into numerology, the study of the energetics of numbers, to find your life path number and how it will play out for this November in our monthly series. Our resident number-guru Felicia Bender, The Practical Numerologist, joins us to give you a new kind of forecast, one that will complement your Monthly Horoscope. To find your monthly Numerology prediction, you 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). Tap into the energy to plan your month ahead!
1. Take your birth date (for example): 3/24/1984
2. Now replace the year you were born with the current year: 3/24/2016
3. Now add those numbers together like a long addition math problem: 3 + 2 + 4 + 2 + 0 + 1 + 6 = 18
4. Digit down to a single-digit number, so keep adding: 1+8= 9
5. If this were your birthday, you’re experiencing an “9” Personal Year in 2016.
If you’re having a 1 Personal Year, November is a 3 Month.
November is the perfect month to get your pre-holiday groove on! This is a perfect time to enjoy yourself with friends at large and small gatherings—so tap into your sense of fun and festivity. You might even find yourself throwing a party or two yourself! If there’s ever a month where you can channel your “Host or Hostess with the Mostest” vibe, it’s now. Optimism, communication and networking are highlighted this month. This is a time to bring your enthusiasm front and center, as it will be contagious. Focus on bringing more joy into your life, as November offers you a wonderful canvas to cultivate all things warm and fuzzy. Caveat: clear, honest and authentic communication is needed AND will be tested all month long. 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—and you deserve it! Enjoy the arts in whatever form you love: initiate and create things that are artistic and innovative, or simply admire as an audience member. Go to see plays, movies, exhibits, concerts—and dance the night away. Take a poetry or writing course—anything that feeds your creative soul.
If you’re having a 2 Personal Year, November is a 4 Month.
It’s all business in November for the 2 Personal Year. 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 vibration, which brings into play the business of hard work, 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. November has the potential to be a turning point, and you’ll begin to move forward from all the delays and false starts that 2016 has brought you thus far. There may be some legal matters—agreements or contracts—to study or negotiate around November 4th. The energy of the 4 Month brings in home-related activities of all kinds—including old family-of-origin issues—so this may be a theme to be dealt with now. You may be involved in buying or selling some property, possibly even a home of your own, around November 18th. Your success resides in taking your time, painstakingly reviewing documents and actively engaging in the step-by-step processes that it takes to meet your goals.
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 intensely. The energy of the month is all about change and freedom. Add that to an already emotionally-charged social year and you’ve got a lot of fun in store for you! The challenge here is 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.” Get out there: mix and mingle, make social connections. All roads lead to putting yourself out there and being front-and-center. Freedom is your theme for the month. Mixed with the theme of self-expression demanded by your 3 Personal Year, it won’t be surprising if you have a few emotional moments this month. All in all, this is a major turning point time for change and transition.
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 cultivating an 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 inner child—to investigate and nurture those aspects of yourself that need a little TLC. 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 2nd and 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.
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 R&R? 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 now. 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 6th. You may also get a nudge to get serious about an exercise regimen or eating program. Begin by implementing in slow steps so that it has lasting ramifications with your mental, physical, and spiritual health. This year has been all about freedom. How do you balance and integrate freedom and responsibility? 2017 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 in just two short months. Chances are that you’ll feel compelled to reflect on a number of significant matters that are bubbling to the surface, particularly between November 9th and 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! February was your first 8 month this year, so November is a clarifying “push” time where you’ll feel energized to move forward with power and persuasion. Thinking in business-like terms will be greatly beneficial for you this month, as you ready yourself for action and achievement. 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. Get practical, and take care of any contracts or agreements related to your home on or about November 5th. Iron out any tax or business affairs needing attention during the week of November 9th. A family member may need assistance on some legal or financial matter, probably around November 18th. 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, per se. 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 an 9 Month.
November is an intriguing month. You’ll be able to take a step back and look deeply into the mirror to make healthier decisions about your life. Or alternately, you could feel victimized and frustrated. You may convince yourself to cling onto what’s no longer working for you. It’s time to pull together the different strands that you’ve been working throughout the year so far. This month is guided by the energy of the number 9: completions, letting go and transitions. Again, this is amplified by the over-arching energy of the 9 Universal Year. You’ll feel heightened 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 7th. On or about November 16th, some spiritual insights that you’ve been working on may finally gel for you, and you’ll receive an aha moment. There is a possibility for the termination of some important matter or relationship between November 18th and 27th. This has been a rather long and perhaps arduous year for you overall. You’re being offered opportunities to put some of these musings and confounded issues of the year to bed. Prepare to “snap out of it” and plant your feet on terra firma once more.
If you’re having a 8 Personal Year, November is a 1 Month.
This is an amazingly dynamic month—so much is coming to fruition now! You are being rewarded for the concerted effort you’ve put forth this year. 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, engage and succeed. Repetition isn’t a failure. 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—we’re all learning something. 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 in 2017. 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 various enterprises that are heading in completely different directions. Warning: don’t jump the gun just yet. 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.
If you’re having a 9 Personal Year, November is an 11/2 Month.
November wants you to slow down. October was a crazy month with a cacophony of completions mixed with dynamic action—enough to make anyone feel a bit off-balance. Although you may feel 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. Patience is the name of the game. And along with that comes ample opportunities to hone your intuition and spiritual growth. Nothing can be forced right now. When you take the emphasis off yourself and put it onto supporting others in your life, you’ll be golden. By engaging and making yourself available to other people right now you’ll be opening up yourself to rich rewards. 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 one of the 11 can create some nervous tension, and also a tendency to blaze forward with the action the number 1 is known for: initiation and getting things done. But that kind of bulldozing and running forward will only backfire for you right now. It is going to take some mindfulness to trust this slower process. Important answers and solutions come through intuition, and through channels that have nothing to do with action, activity or logic.
