The world year is descriptive of the trends and energies the world as a collective will face in any given year. To calculate this number, we add the digits of the current year, 2+0+1+6 = 9. Number 9 is the last in the 9 year cycle and that is why it is a year of endings. The transition between a 9 year and a 1 year is the most significant in the cycle as it indicates a closing of one chapter and the starting of a fresh one. It is the right time to reflect upon what began in your life in 2008, and how far you have come with respect to it. Having a sense of closure with whatever you have achieved is really important.
Number 9 represents the theme of forgiveness, to make amends with those you have wronged or to forgive those who have hurt you will purify your energy and help you push your best self forward into the next 9 year cycle. The number 9 energy favours wrapping up old issues, regrets, and heartbreaks, and finally laying them to rest. Regardless of the other person’s response, if you make a sincere effort to forgive or to be forgiven in 2016, you will get better results than usual, and feel more peaceful as a result.
In a 9 year, our original family plays a larger role in our lives, as we see how they have uniquely shaped us into who we are today. Memories of growing up, old friends, loved ones who passed away, and things we did for fun when younger make a comeback. Since the themes of original family and forgiveness are intertwined, it is an especially good time to make amends with family members you have been at odds with, even if you haven’t spoken with them in many years. Speak your truth because opening up the channels of communications can truly cause miracles to occur: as Pluto vibrates to 9, a profound healing and transformation can take place if you open your heart to it. Barriers can be broken down and relationships restored stronger than ever before.
Number 9 has an energy of teaching to it, and you don’t have to be a teacher in a formal sense to do this. Make an effort this year to share your knowledge and expertise with those who could benefit from it, and especially those younger to you. If you are so inclined, you may write an article or book, conduct classes, or make videos to communicate your knowledge.
Volunteering in a 9 year is particularly enjoyable, as the feeling of giving back creates good karma and gives a sense of completion. In fact giving of all kinds is favoured, as it plants good seeds for the next cycle. You may gain a sense of fulfillment in volunteering with people or causes in need of assistance overseas.
As both Mars and Pluto, the warrior planets correspond to 9, you could be energized to fight for what you believe in, to uphold your values regardless of how powerful your competitor appears to be. Seeing people, especially those who are disadvantaged, being treated unfairly will light a collective fire to do something to correct the situation. Action is a keyword for both Mars and Pluto so making a positive change in your immediate surroundings and even the world is important, and global issues take on increased prominence. If enough people take action, societal breakthroughs can more easily occur in 2017, a pioneering number 1 year. The vibration of 9 helps us think of people from all over the world as our neighbors and to see how we are all interconnected. Learning about foreign cultures and lifestyles expands our horizons in 2016.
Your personal year number is descriptive of the types of trends and experiences that you will encounter in a given calendar year. You will also notice that for the year, you temporarily take on the characteristics of your personal year number. For example, in a personal year 7 many people find themselves doing a lot of writing, studying, teaching and/or contemplating. They may spend more time alone, in philosophical/ spiritual pursuits or in nature. Research, analysis, problem solving and investigation are favored.
Based on your personal year, different numbers affect you in different months of the year. This makes certain feelings, experiences and trends more prevalent in one month over the other. The Numerology forecast “Your Destiny in Numbers” takes a variety of number energies into account to provide you with a glimpse into the upcoming month.
Personal year calculation= your birth month (1=January, 2=February… 12= December) + your birthday + current year
Example: A person born July 16th would add 7 (July) + 16 and 9 (2+0+1+6) = 5. Their personal year is 5 in 2016.
