This year, on July 4, 2014, the United States enters its 18/9 Personal Year. The 9 Year is the end of the current nine-year cycle and will bring to a culmination and end some of what was begun in 2006. As with all 9 Personal Years, it would be incumbent upon our the country to eliminate many of the difficulties, problems and conditions that no longer serve the common good. While it is not my place to list these things, I am sure that many of those of you who are reading this article may have a good idea of what exactly those things may be.
This would be a good year for this country to move away from a world perspective of war and aggression and towards one of peace and tolerance. Under the influence of the 18/9, the United States could once again become a true leader of humanity working from a place of responsibility, brotherhood and Universal love. If this country is going to proclaim itself the leader of the world and a shining example for other countries, then this year would be a great time to get back on-track with appropriate behavior(s). The influence of the 9 is a perfect time to do away with attitudes and actions that no longer serve the common good. It is time for America to shed its mantle of solving problems with guns and aggressive actions and take on the mantle of humanitarianism, benevolence and selflessness (in many ways the President has been attempting to do just that yet sadly, the political partisanship and hawkish nature of many makes such moves the object of scorn and ridicule). In that regard, the 18/9 will also lend an intense emotional component to discussions which may ratchet up the political discourse to an even louder and more divisive level. There is certainly a caution against acting in an impulsive fashion. Thought and consideration must be given to all situations with the goal of a humane and loving response to the issues that arise. As is the case in all 9 Personal Years, it is very important that strides be taken to rid ourselves of the conditions and situations that no longer serve us for we run the risk of said situations exacerbating if carried forward into the next cycle that will being on July 4, 2015. The 9 Year embraces an attitude of giving and receiving thus this year would be a good time to get the dialogue back on-track to a more understanding and compromising nature.
During the course of this year, the United States needs to do some self-examination and take an inventory of behaviors and attitudes that no longer serve the greatest good. Being under the influence of a 7 Universal Year until December, the time is right for contemplating and researching new methods of problem-solving and creating a feeling of unity. In January, when the world moves into an 8 Universal Year, it will be time to put plans into action and move forward to accomplish the goals that are set. The country needs to take a good look at its policies both domestically and internationally and move towards a compassionate and all-inclusive approach to matters. Respect must be paid to all and an understanding must take root that everyone is deserving of the same rights and privileges with no exceptions. The 9 demands a tolerant, philanthropic and altruistic vision and now would be a good time to begin to lay the groundwork for moving forward through the disposal of anything that stands in the way of such attitudes. We must become more forgiving. While all of this is necessary within government, it will be brought about through the personal efforts and behavior of each and every citizen of this nation. Be the change you would like to see and do what you can to foster that change. This is the task that lies before us (the country and its citizens) in the year to come.
Blessings of Love and Light!

July is a 14/5 Universal Month. 14/5 is one of the Karmic Debt numbers in Numerology and has a great deal to do with the human condition and the sexual principles of life. With the 5 being a representation of (among other things) the human condition, July may see more focus and attention paid to things having to do with the physical being of people. This may be especially important in the ongoing fight around women's reproductive rights and the continuing crackdown on abortion by state legislatures. We may very well see an increase and intensity in this battle as people on both sides look to assert their positions, as the 14/5 also concerns the issues of pregnancy and social and family obligations. With the 5's desire for balance and law and order, once again the people's voices must be heard and considered, especially in the realm of legal documents and laws. 5 also represents the elements of freedom and change and perhaps these elements will gain importance in an area that should be entirely personal, without the interference or constraints of government or social agendas. Additionally, 14/5 includes conditions and situations revolving around national, community and social conscience. As the world continues to struggle in its quest to create balance for all, we may also see an increase in conflicts surrounding viewpoints and agendas of governments and people in power. Might this not be a good time for people and politicians to work from a place of good conscience that includes concern and importance for the common good? With the energy of the 7 Universal Year also at play, everyone must learn to investigate, research and understand the issues that have an effect on you...personally and collectively.
July will also bring about an increase in attention to matters of health, wealth and education. A receptivity to new things may help in propelling the dialogue regarding these matters. It will be important for all to slow down and give thought and consideration to previous behavior patterns (and this is greatly enhanced by the energy of the 7 Universal Year of which we are currently under the influence). Increased concentration and mental transference can bring about new influences and changes where necessary. One positive way to foster and bring about such changes will be through the use of tact, diplomacy and persuasion as well as staying informed and engaged in matters large and small. A key word to keep in mind during all conversations and actions is TEMPERANCE...giving consideration to all opinions and perspectives and acting, again, from a place that creates the best for everyone and enhances the common good.
5 is known for its bold and adventurous spirit and its willingness to take chances, and July amplifies opportunities to do so. This may be a month in which the unusual or extraordinary receives notice and the time is ripe for new and different products and ideas. The 14/5 energy is good for sales, travel and a change of pace and these conditions may bring about increases in the selling and purchases of goods and services. One caution is to be aware that trends towards desire creates a need for balance, again, keeping in mind the major conditions of the sexual principles associated with this number. Opportunities will exist to create balance in the physical realm as well as the creative ability to manifest change(s). All things and situations should be met with an abundance of enthusiasm and a willingness to make the necessary modifications. The principle of the 14/5 is the destruction of the old and the re-building of the new underscored by learning the lesson of detachment. Through these actions can we discover the true meanings of peace and freedom. It is through learning to love the law of change that it will be conquered.
In the world of business, along with the potential for increased sales (especially in the categories of pleasure-driven items), there is also increased energy regarding speculation and competition. While there may be losses of property or business failures, it must be remembered that losses may be necessary in that they will bring about gains.
On the negative side, the 14/5 energy of July may also bring on a rise in dishonesty and irresponsibility. People may leave jobs over issues real or imagined. There may also be an increase in fraudulent practices and these may arise in the areas of business and government. It is important that you stay engaged in the on-going processes and allow your voice to be heard...both individually and collectively.
2014 is a 7 Universal Year and the elements of increased scrutiny, analysis, understanding and education hold sway over all actions. We must all question the status-quo and our leaders and hold them accountable for their words and actions. After the 13/4 energy of June and its elements of transitional change, July continues the vibration under which the world continues to transform as we struggle to bring balance, system and equality to all things. It is imperative that we collectively visualize the world in which we would like to live and then work towards bringing forth those goals and visions.
Blessings of Love & Light!
