JULY 4, 2018
A 22/4 PERSONAL YEAR FOR THE UNITED STATES (and Donald Trump)
In 2018, the United States enters its 22/4 Personal Year, the fourth year in its current 9-year cycle. As it takes place under the larger umbrella of the 11/2 Universal Year (I recommend that you go to my website www.michaeljohnfierro.com and read my essay on the meaning of the 11/2 Year), the upcoming year has great potential for great things that benefit the greater good as long as the actions and energies are directed outward to positively affect the greatest number of people. A cardinal rule that applies to Master Numbers (11, 22, 33, 44, 55) is that it is imperative that the energy is directed outward. The consequence of not doing so results in the energy of the vibration being reduced to the worst conditions of the lower digit (in the case of the 11 it is the 2; with the 22 it is the 4). With the 22, that can create a never-ending series of obstacles, setbacks, and reversals on a grand scale. It is important to understand that Donald Trump's Personal Years track those of the United States, so he too, has entered his 22/4 Personal Year so as you read this essay, remember that it applies to him and his presidency. 2018 is an 11 Universal Year and it is under the auspices of the vibration that we have opportunity to put into play the powerful energy of the 22.
The 22 is super powerful and super practical. Under the influence of this number it is time to take inventory of oneself (the country) and the world at large. Because of the magnanimous nature of Master Numbers, it is extremely important that as a country we take care that we do not begrudge guidance, knowledge, service, assistance, or comfort to anyone who might require it of us. We must maintain sight of the goals, principles, and ideals that make America what it is while working to improve upon those things and be certain that everyone shares in the benefits. The 22 is the Spiritual Master Builder on the material plane. Its power and energy are expanded fourfold. This number carries with it great responsibility. While much is required, much must also be given. We must embrace and practice cooperation and harmony in all our dealings. Not only within our borders but in our dealings with the other nations of the world. Isolation and removing ourselves from the world stage may very well bring about more upset, anger, and rebellion on the part of all citizens, domestically and internationally. This is a cautious vibration that wants to see its way there and back again before it moves into action. Careless, reckless, and thoughtless actions will backfire in the most spectacular ways. The 22/4 demands planning, structure, process, and strong foundations for all that one wishes to accomplish. Rash, impulsive behavior will not be rewarded positively.
While the 22/4 sees the larger picture it is also quite capable of working with and understanding the details necessary to accomplish the stated goals. Since this is the Personal Year of our nation (and the president), it is incumbent that our leaders have the ability to see the vision of where we are headed and the ability to get us there in a way that helps the greatest number of people. Not everyone will see or recognize the vision that may exist and, again, it is the job of our leaders to adequately and completely share with the people what that vision is and how we will accomplish that which we set out to do. This number holds the responsibility of bringing things to the masses and creating the infrastructure to support and maintain them.
A 22/4 Year will fit into the cycle in place of the 4 Year, thus many of the conditions of the 4 Year are present, but in a much more powerful and practical fashion. Therefore, also read the following description of the 4 Personal Year information to better understand the underlying themes and energy. This is a year for big projects and grand and sweeping terms of thinking. In situations in which there are other nations (equals or not), we can expect increased recognition and gratitude for our efforts. The 22 Year brings more focus on the work of the government. Especially with regards to the tenet “...of the people, by the people, for the people” and the affairs of life that affect each and every one of us. Since this is a good year for travel internationally, it would behoove us if those who represent our nation do so in a way consistent with the ideals and principles upon which our country was founded. Once again, we must remember that anything too self-directed, selfish, or dismissive in our conversations and negotiations does not bode well for a positive and beneficial result. Conversely, if those attributes and conditions are exercised, recognition and appreciation may be the result. A driving energy in this year is to do for others in big ways. The work and efforts should be manifested in such a way that the largest number of people benefit. Any actions we enlist solely for nationalistic gain are almost certain to backfire and create worsening situations in many fields. The 22 energy must be directed outward for the good of all. It is from this type of activity that our rewards manifest. The cautions for this year are to beware of foolishness and folly. It is important that we know our limitations, while aligning with others to accomplish our goals.
The 4 Year is a year to work. The energy of this year will mean that the nation should be more practical while working to create the structures and foundations upon which we can build a stronger country moving forward. It is during this time period when a foundation for security should be implemented. This is a time to build homes, lives and property. Acts of wanton disregard and carelessness will bring about long-term problems. This is a year to shore up the structure and foundation of ideas, projects, and plans while at the same time, digging in and make corrections to those plans and ideas that were implemented and planted in our 1 Personal Year (2015). It is important that we keep busy, work efficiently, and stay in a state of action, doing what needs to be done to further things along. This 4 Year is also a time to put the affairs of society and the business world in order. We must exercise self-discipline while making ourselves aware of being too much rigid, dogmatic, and non-inclusive of the whole. There is a caution to pay attention to issues surrounding health, also. In this case it is the health of the economy, the government, and the health and well-being of each and every individual.
Negative aspects of the 22 that must be known, recognized and avoided revolve around being too self-directed. There is also great caution and demand of the collective awareness that we pay attention and in so doing, recognizing behavior that is based in a hunger for power or a tendency of being too dictatorial. The absolute worst negative conditions include being exploitative, selfishness, ruthlessness, being too controlling, and too disciplined. On the extreme fringe of the negative 22 lies the potential for evil to rise up. As well as infamy.
The 22 Year has great potential for successes. The people need to be recognized as being our greatest resource. The more we use our resources and good fortune to benefit the greatest number of people, the greater the potential for progress and growth that will positively affect the greater good. Collectively, we must be diligent in looking for and discovering new solutions to old (and new) problems while be unafraid to put into motion new courses of action. In all we do, we must do things while being honest, ethical, and hard-working. The potential exists to create a new order. One of inclusion and benefit and not exclusion and greed.
These are difficult and troubled times in which we live. 2016/2017 was the turning point nexus for the world. Here we are a few years into the current Universal 9-Year cycle and we appear to have lost our way. Especially here in the United States. I have continuously cautioned that we must allow things to play out in order for us to gain insight, wisdom, and benefit. It is only then that we will be able to make the changes and adjustments necessary to bring us back to an equitable center. That which was hidden has been, and is being, exposed. The inner rot that has affected our country for too long is being revealed to the light of day. Only by incising a wound are you able to clean it out to allow for healing. In many ways, I personally believe we are living in a time that has allowed two separate and alternative universes to co-exist in the same physical space simultaneously. With that happening, they are constantly bumping up against one another and friction and alternative views of what is taking place are a regular part of our discourse. All of this is overlaid with an inability to understand the opposition and that is entirely understandable if you concur with my “alternate universes in the same place” theory.
So, what can you do? Be diligent. Be observant. Be patient. Be kind. Participate. Raise your voice. Do not succumb to the dark forces that seem to be all around us. Hold to your truth and be loving.
Blessings of Love and Light

2018 – An 11/2 Universal Year
Lessons Taught and/or Lessons Learned?
2018. An 11/2 Universal Year. 11 is the first Master Number. It represents the intuitive teacher and inspirational leader. The lessons can be easy. The lessons can be difficult. One thing is certain...the lessons will be learned. Just as in our personal lives, we are usually presented with numerous opportunities from which we can learn the lesson we need to learn. When we choose to ignore them, or when we do not even recognize them, they return. Each and every time they return, the lesson gets a little more dramatic, and possibly even, traumatic. If we continue to ignore these things, the moment will eventually arrive when we will have absolutely no choice but to pay attention as situations and/or conditions will become such that they will be impossible to ignore. We will be forced into taking steps to rectify and clear the situations and then create the tools or opportunities necessary to move forward in our lives. Life being what it is, it will continue to provide us learning experiences and lessons to be learned. The pattern will also play out the way I just mentioned. It is up to us to recognize things for what they are and to then act accordingly. So, as it is in our personal lives, it is in the macro world in which we reside. The big picture is the extension and expansion of our own, individual lives. As above, so below. As within, so with out. 2018 is going to be a year filled with a constant stream of BIG lessons. Things that have remained hidden. Things about which we do not speak. Things that are injustices and inequalities that have been ignored. It will be one, or all (I'm leaning in the direction of 'all') and they will all be writ large in our daily lives and discourses.
One can usually begin to feel the effects of any given Personal approximately 4-6 weeks before the Year actually begins. With a Universal Year the same rule applies meaning that in mid-November or early December, the energy begins to exercise itself. You would have to have been living in an internet-free cave to not be aware of the paradigm-shifting activities that are taking place. As I like to say regarding a 9 Personal Year heading into a 1 Personal Year, “If you think it was bad before, be prepared for conditions to exacerbate.” Well, the world has been procrastinating and, at times, regressing in its behavior towards the major issues of the day. 2016, (a 9 Universal Year) was the year during which we should have diligently worked towards the goal of changing and rectifying the problems that are a part of our existence. Doing so would have given us a cleaner slate during 2017 (a 1 Universal Year) to move forward while embracing new solutions and better and fairer ways of handling that which ails us and our world. Sadly, there wasn't a lot of that going on. In its place, we've spent the year re-hashing old sore spots and because of that, we have moved backwards to a time that long ago served its purpose. This regression has led us to where we are. The issue(s) have come back with a vengeance. Corruption. Politics before all else. Sexism. Misogyny. Racism. Inequality. Inequity. All that was hidden has been, and will be revealed. Now is the time for the battle to begin. Now is the time to collectively decide the type of country and world in which we choose to live.
And, so it is, that the energy and vibration of the 11/2 Universal Year comes into play. It is here to teach. It is here to illuminate our path. It is here to emphasize the dualities of the double-1s and the underlying 2 and by so doing, expose us to the concept of understanding and accepting the energy and meaning of the 'Two' in order to show us how to live in concert, with acceptance, and recognition of both sides of all situations. We must learn that it is the opposites that allow us to see clearly. One cannot see the light without having the contrast of darkness.
On the positive side, 2018 can be a time of an increase in spiritual movements, and in matters of the metaphysical and the occult. This can be a year during which new developments and techniques are introduced in teaching. Of benefit to all, we may also see the rising up, or emergence of spiritual teachers who are here to assist us in our growth. In conjunction with this we may also see and experience an increase in the collective social conscience/consciousness coupled with a prevalence of altruistic behavior.
2018 is certainly a year during which we must learn the lessons of both the inner and outer worlds. Inspiration and enlightenment from on high are potential conditions that may be revealed and experienced. It is incumbent upon us all to tune into the messages and signals that we receive and then find a way to incorporate these things into our everyday existence. Co-operation, tolerance, acceptance, and learning to work and live in harmony are all elements of the overarching energy of the year. In learning these lessons there is a call for balance and centering. We may very well experience pendulum swings from the material to the spiritual and back again. While this will be a year of increased idealism, it is important that we avoid nit-picking the small details of things and with those with whom we may disagree. Above all, good examples must be set, especially in the realm of increasing the level of dedication, and commitment to working with others. The citizens and leaders of the world must learn to incorporate the concept of service to others and we must commit ourselves to mastering ideas, ideals, concepts, and thoughts that, at their core, are dedicated to the betterment of our collective and individual existences. We may find answers and inspiration through the various expressions of the arts, be it art, music, movies, literature, and just plain, old conversations. The year can also bring about improvements in our psychological systems while we also experience new and exciting breakthroughs in the world of scientific developments and innovations. 2018 is also fertile ground for the introduction of great new inventions designed to improve our lives, environment, and overall well-being.
In many ways, 2018 will be a testing period. Humankind will be faced with challenges that require thoughtful and compassionate responses and we must steer ourselves in new direction and in new and less divisive fashions. We should all be prepared for sudden events that will require quick decisions and decisive actions. We must behave in a manner that indicates our acknowledgment and acceptance that we are all brothers and sisters in one, gigantic family and while we may have our disagreements, it will behoove us all to find a way forward that improves life for everyone. In the course of taking action, we must guard against impulsiveness and we must learn to exercise far more patience and tolerance with people and conditions that may exist. This is a year during which we must find ways to get rid of our past mistaken thoughts and actions. Especially those that have helped create and solidify any and all negative circumstances. Now is the time to select the right combination of attitudes to create more favorable and desirable results moving forward.
On the geo-political stage, more information may be revealed about any legal/illegal dealings regarding money. This may particularly play out with regard to Trump and the Russians and the tangled web that has been woven by the players involved. Obviously, dependent upon the words and actions of world leaders, the underlying energy of the 2 presents the opportunity for the peace-making component of the number to be brought into play. 2018 may certainly bring to a head issues for which there are two completely different and opposite viewpoints. Politically this could be the right/left political divide. It may also further bring to center stage the ongoing issues surrounding the relationships of the male and female energies. 2 is a feminine energy number and 2018 has great potential with regards to elevating the female archetype to a more prominent (and deserving) place in society, government, business, and all other aspects of life.
In the world of the Tarot, 11 is the card of Justice. This card is a representation of teaching, education, and guidance. We must seek to find balance through justice as we weigh the meaning of present situations and conditions, and achieve balance by overcoming the errors of the past. The use of discrimination in our thoughts and deeds is highlighted. It is imperative that we individually and collectively work to eliminate the poisonous toxins in life.
As with all numbers, the 11/2 also has negative attributes and conditions that are associated with it. We must be vigilant and guard against an increase in political, economic, and spiritual fanaticism. In our vigilance, we must guard against any complacency and smugness which may be present, or which increases in prevalence in powerful institutions. We must speak up against prejudices, inequalities, and inequities. 2018 has great potential to be a testing and challenging period and we must be diligent in making certain that the energy is channeled into positive ideas and things. There is great caution to guard against any existing negativity and, we must be hyper-alert in allowing these conditions to increase and/or exacerbate, for this will lead to even greater fears and doubts. It is our duty to hold all our leaders (political, religious, business, and cultural) accountable for their words and actions and we must be careful to not allow the casting of fears and doubts to become a pandemic that sweeps our nation and the world. We must be cautious in our assessment of others' motives and beware of any and all suspect motives in our international (and national) dealings. It is very important that we don't take things for granted and that we look beyond the face value of words. We must be aware of the possibility that we will be let down by our friends, allies, and our own political leaders. We must be especially mindful that others' activities are not prompted by things that we do or propagate. The worst case scenario indicates that it may be almost impossible to come to any agreements or decisions.
If not exercised as the 11 there is great danger of the worst of the 2 being in play. That will give us a world of submissiveness and being taken advantage of for the enrichment of a few.
In summary, 2018 is the second year in the current 9-year cycle. 2017 saw us suffer the consequences of not dealing with things in 2016 and previous years. Throughout the past year, the veil continued to be lifted and the dark, unseemly underbelly of life continued to be exposed. The 11/2 energy of this year will present us numerous and frequent opportunities to confront our weaknesses while we look for the leaders and ideas that will move us forward into a new and better world for everyone. Inspiration, ideals, and new ideas are all going to benefit from the fertile ground of the upcoming year. We must look for the individuals who are capable and committed to lifting up everyone. Of great caution, we must guard against those who will look to seize opportunities to make their points in violent or aggressive means thus becoming martyrs to their cause. With that being said, we must also be prepared to accept the fact that the more we ignore the important lessons we should be learning, the more dramatic and traumatic events may be to get our attention.
Above all, 11 is a teacher. Ideally, our lessons will be somewhat benign and we will easily learn what we must learn. Yet, just as in our personal lives, when there is something to which we must direct our focus and attention to make changes and alterations to our behavior(s), the more we ignore the lessons, the greater the intensity and drama of that which takes place. I believe that everyone reading this who has enough self-awareness to see this pattern in their own life, or in the lives of those to whom they are close, can identify with this unfolding of events. Eventually, we are forced into taking action because we are left with no further options.
For example, over the past years America has seen a seemingly never-ending string of mass shootings. The lesson has to do with guns, aggressiveness, and violence and how much we value each and every life. Without being political, a big portion of the conversation has to do with guns and their presence in our lives. Sadly, the very politics of this issue have paralyzed us from coming to a common sense agreement as to how we handle things and how we move forward while reducing the frequency and horror of these events. While saying this, I must share with you an enlightened awareness I received this year when it comes to the Master Numbers. I have always believed and taught (and I still do) that the Master Numbers are exalted positions of their lower number. I have always said that in some ways people with these numbers 'volunteered' to come back to this plane, at this time, to fulfill a specific purpose in the greater scheme of things. They came to Teach. Inspire. Build. Lead. Create. Nurture. To have a Master Number, and to have it exist in its optimal condition, it is imperative and necessary that one subjugate one's personal life to the greater good. (If someone has a Master Number and goes through life with a 'me first' attitude, in all probability their life will be one filled with hardships and obstacles. Things may never work out as expected and life can become quite burdensome.) While I was fully aware that all numbers have both positive and negative characteristics and attributes, I always viewed the Master Numbers as the potential 'bright lights'. And then something happened. Well, actually, multiple somethings happened. And kept happening. Those somethings were the mass shootings that have become so common in America that we have become inured to their horribleness. Numerology is such a part of who I am, that I am hard-pressed to not do a chart on anyone in the news. Hell, I can't drive without doing license plates! But, I digress. In doing charts for the shooters in these horrific killings, I noticed that quite often there were Master Numbers involved. The more shootings, the more Master Numbers. After Las Vegas, it came to me that the presence of these numbers in these events indicated that these shooters were actually fulfilling their chosen role of being teachers. Granted, this is not the conventional way to teach but if one gives consideration to what is written in the first paragraph, one can see that we have not learned any lessons when it comes to guns and violence in America. We ignore it. We cloak it in patriotism. We says it's our right (which it is) but we are also guaranteed 'life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness' and nothing can stop that quicker than a bullet. So, giving thought and consideration to these situations leads me to believe that 2018 has great potential to go either way in a dramatic and potentially life-changing way. We've had years to get things right. We haven't done as well as we could have, or should have. The conditions to which I referred previously are going to be front and center. In the theater of life we will all have orchestra seats and we will all bear witness to what unfolds. We can all be changed for the better. Or, the worse. I wish for the former. I fear for the latter.
In conclusion, 2018 can be the year during which we break down the barriers and do away with the conditions that exist that make things as bad as they are. We must 'look to the heavens''. In reality, we must look within ourselves to find our way forward. We must do this individually and collectively. We must be vigilant in looking for the inspirations and teachers who are here to assist. We must gravitate towards a more loving, compassionate, and caring world. We must forsake those for whom their own self interests are their driving force. We must lift up and rise up out of the muck and find the way to light our paths. We must help those who need assistance. It starts with each one of us and must spread from one to another. We must recognize and identify the dualities that exist and we must make collective decisions as to which path will be the path for moving forward in a positive manner. We must also be prepared for things to worsen if we do not change course in so many ways. Personally, I believe that 2018 can, and should be, the Year of the Woman. The paradigms are shifting. Those who currently hold power realize their days are numbered and I am certain they will not leave the stage without a fight. Fight we must if our intentions are good and pure.
BE INSPIRED! INSPIRE THOSE AROUND YOU. DO YOUR PART TO MAKE THIS A BETTER WORLD. WE CAN ALL DO BETTER. WE MUST ALL DO BETTER. THE TIME IS NOW!
The choice is yours. The effects belong to us all.
I wish each and every one of you the absolute best for the coming year. May you be inspired to do your best to improve your life and the lives of all with whom you have contact. Be steadfast. Be strong. Be brave. Be loving. Be caring.

YOU KNOW YOUR NAME...LOOK UP YOUR NUMBERS

This year the United States enters its 12/3 Personal Year. The 12/3 plays a significant role during 2017 as it is also the Personal Year of Donald Trump (June 14) and, this year's solar eclipse which falls on August 21, a 12/3 Universal Day. The vibration of this number represents strong individual principles and the end of a cycle, as well as creative self-expression, artistic endeavors, communication, expansion and growth. To a degree, it is also a time of completion.
During this year, the energy demands that we must cultivate the courage of our convictions as well as the power to gain followers in progressive and creative ideas. The 12/3 provides the ability to see the truth and to work towards re-formation. The proper use of this energy will allow us to convince others of a new and better way and to lead by righting the wrongs of people and policies. It is a year to recognize the truth and to move forward through strongly believing in that which we believe (the founding principles and guiding light of our country's foundation). This is a time of ending one cycle while we proceed through to the completion of another cycle. As a country, it is imperative that we be strong in our convictions in expressing our principles and, in putting forth these principles that we stay true to our country's heritage and foundation while being relentless in their pursuit.
The 12/3 is also a waiting period during which we may experience a change of view. This number has as one of its benchmarks the concept of reversal. As a nation, 2017 is a year during which we must stop, look, and listen. We must consider this year to be a quiet pause when we should spend time thinking, and learning to see things as they really are and not as they appear. This is an ideal time to be bringing seemingly conflicting polarities into perspective, thus allowing us to create an inner harmony that is reflected outward. Understanding and reflecting upon the fact that the miseries of the country are self-imposed and caused by negative thought processes can go a long way in helping us to correct that which ails us, while collectively finding solutions that are of benefit to the common good. The dis-harmonies we have created and fostered have created the problems that we are experiencing. A change of view is in order.
Our collective consciousness must be open to the universal mind which by extension, will open the opportunities to begin to see the errors in our thinking. During this creative period we will begin to see that important elements will begin to take precedence while other situations come to a head. This may very well lead to many of our problems being settled. Of course, these actions and behaviors require that we observe, reflect, and meditate upon our current condition so that we may move forward with a sense of unity and cohesion.
The 12/3 is a time of reversal and sacrifices will be required through trial and loss until we get to a place that serves everyone and our greater good. To a degree, we must go with the flow and allow things to sort themselves out. While doing so, we must be sympathetic and tactful. Our successes in all matters will be achieved through acceptance.
Represented by the Hanged Man in the Tarot, this vibration represents being poised in consciousness and under perfect control. The law of reversal is strong here. A reversal from being egocentrically directed towards giving selfless service to others.
In summary, with 'reversal' being an important component of the 12/3 vibration, this is a year during which we may find that much of what has transpired over the past two years, and much of what has contributed to the current political, social, and economic issues that face us, will be turned on its head as our nation looks to self-correct and right the ship of state. With its strong association with words written and spoken, the 3 demands of us to speak up and speak truth to power. It is quite possible that the world of the arts may play an important role in getting the word out. Through creative endeavors, our problems and issues will be moved to center stage in a manner that will be hard to ignore. Enlightening and educating people will be the purpose. As with any 3 Personal Year, we must also be vigilant in watching out for third-party interference in our affairs. We must guard against being manipulated by 'off-camera' actors who are looking to disrupt and interfere with the nation's business.
It is up to each of us to play our part and do what must be done. May you find peace and strength in your participation and endeavors.
Blessings of Love & Light

2017 A 10/1 Universal Year
Where do we go from here?
Well, we have made it to the end of 2016, the 9 Universal Year and we are now poised on the brink of a new 9-year cycle and all that it may bring about. 2016 was a tumultuous year in many ways. We saw the passing of many cultural icons as well as the falling away of certain aspects of our collective lives. In America we have seemingly seen the end of civility in the public and political discourse that affects each and every one of us. We may have also experienced the end of our political party system as it was constructed. Sadly, what we did not see was an end to the dis-empowering and negative actions and activities of governments and nations worldwide. If anything, it appears as though some of those actions got worse and which show every indication of worsening even more as we move forward. What we did not see was a move towards more inclusion and acceptance of everyone. We did not see an end to the continuing disenfranchising of so many of those in need throughout the world. If anything, those conditions also deteriorated. In the constant that is the process of Numerology, the 9 is the combination of all the traits and characteristics of the previous 8 numbers (1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8=36=9). As the end of every cycle, 9's job is to take what was accumulated and learned during the previous 9 years and turn around and hand it off to the 1 of the next cycle. It is through this method that wisdom, knowledge, lessons, and more are passed forward into the future. Also passed along are the negative energies and activities that were not discarded in the 9 Year (2016). As I have shared on many occasions, those things that do not serve the greater and higher good of everyone, and that are not discarded, will only exacerbate moving forward. “If you think it was bad before...just wait!”
So, where do we go from here? What lies in store for 2017 and beyond? As with all things in Numerology, there are both positive and negative aspects that can, and will play out. Much will be determined by the actions and re-actions of the greater collective. Much will be determined by how much we resist the de-evolution of our many current situation(s) while working towards creating a more inclusive, accepting, and loving country (and world). Will we rise up and demand more fairness, equality, honesty, and integrity from our countries and our leaders? Or, will the dark, shadow side that was more greatly exposed in 2016 than ever before, become even more powerful and in-our-faces as it continues to game the system for its own benefits and aggrandizement?
On the positive side, 2017 can be a vehicle for greater justice for all. This year can be an initiation period designed to create and foster positive activity for the good of all. The over-arching energy is directed towards greater initiative and independence on a transitional and trans-formative level. The influence of the 1 can bring about greater enterprise in all facets of society and business with new insights and approaches combined with new and radical ideas. This is a period of bold actions, adventures, and new directions driven by originality and foresight. 2017 can birth many new inventions, plans, projects and businesses that are developed to help solve the many ills that plague the world. It is a time of greater creative independent and innovative energies. There can also be greater emphasis on the individuality of people and cultures. The 10/1 has great possibilities for creating a turn for the better. The year can certainly be the start of something new and the innovative ideas and fresh beginnings that come about are an expression of the law of cause and effect. Events that appear accidental or the result of mere chance result from efforts that have already been expended. In this regard, we must hold to the progress made during the previous 9-year cycle and work collectively to improve that which was created. The 10/1 does hold promises of good fortune and a turn for the better along with progress, improvements, and advancements but, as with all things, those things exist at the whim of current events and world leaders. The opportunities afforded us to create and foster a better understanding of circumstances will be revealed through situations and events that transpire. If previous events were properly executed, rewards will be forthcoming. If not, then we can only wait to see what happens and collectively pray that things tend towards a betterment of conditions, and not a worsening. All efforts will be rewarded accordingly. Be on the look-out for the appearance of people who will be our new 'heroes'. Search out those who are authentic and loving. Do not be fooled by the posers and dilettantes. All are people, on both sides of the equation, who can and will dynamically affect the world through their actions. It will behoove us all (and by extension, the world) if we learn to rely upon an intuition that is based in reason. It is only then that we will truly know what to do and we may discover that for which we have been waiting is now on the cusp of arriving.
The 10/1 Universal Year will also bring about changes in governments worldwide. We are all aware of the results of the 2016 presidential election in the USA, an event about which I cautioned in my essay on the 9 Universal Year that was 2016. We are aware of the fact that the USA will be getting a new president and administration beginning January 20th and are already aware of the change in direction that may be in store for our country. The tone has been set for not only the next 9 years but also for the next 36 years (4 cycles of 9). 2016 saw 67 countries worldwide have elections for either leaders, legislatures, or both. 2017 will see another 46 nations hold elections (among them France, Germany, and Iran). That makes 113 out of the 190+ countries in the world changing, or maintaining their governments in the span of two years. What happens in the rest of the world this year will also contribute greatly to the dynamic of the geo-political scene in the coming years. The potential exists for differences that can be settled with previous enemies, settlements brought about by a clear comprehension of the situations and their problems. Most importantly, it may take a spiritual awakening for our true power and brotherhood to be developed and presented. Perhaps we will see something this year that brings pause to everyone and cause a reassessment of our humanity. We must stand firm in our ideals and our purpose. The 10/1 Universal Year will usher in a new era of events that will definitely affect and lay the groundwork for the world, as we move forward into the 3rd decade of the 21st Century.
On the negative side of the ledger for 2017 are conditions and energies that can truly be harmful to the world and its people. The year certainly holds the seeds for the beginning of changes, upheavals, and dissension. We must definitely be on guard, and protect ourselves against tyranny exercised by governments and leaders. We could see an increase in the weaknesses of some rulers and governments coupled with a corresponding rise in the strength of strongmen, demagogues, and dictators. In a year in which we need to strive for greater balance in all things and for all people, we could very well see the polar opposite creating conditions that greatly exacerbate and deteriorate structures that are currently in place to help people. We may have front-row seats for what is viewed as mischievous antagonism in both politics and discourse. Clinging to the past, intentionally moving to dismantle the progress of the past 70 years, and stubbornly resisting and blocking any progressive innovation meant to improve life for people may not only be a normal course of action, it will also work to effectively and dynamically change the uneasy alliance between governments and their citizens.
2017 is not a time to be putting off important decisions. It is not a time for procrastination. It is not a year for stalling and delaying necessary new legislation designed to help and not hurt people. If failures and losses become endemic we must all come to terms with the understanding that it is the result of previous efforts and endeavors and the way energy was used and put forth. Not that fixed opinions, stubbornness, or being too opinionated are ever good or useful, but the 10/1 energy of the year makes these attitudes and positions even worse than they can normally be. Additionally, we must be very aware of any tendencies towards overdoing and exaggerating any particular needs and desires. We must call out our lawmakers and legislators and remind them that they work for us and that the purpose of their job is to govern 'for the people' and not 'for their own agendas and backers'. It is extremely important that we all make certain that our voices are heard...individually and collectively. To stay silent is to give approval.
We are entering a new era and, in the United States, the dynamic is somewhat similar to what happened after the presidential election of 1980. As I wrote in my essay about 2016, a 9 Universal Year, the last presidential election held in the US in a 9 Universal Year was 1980 and that gave us Reagan and the ensuing 36 years of the attempted, and sometimes successful dismantling of worker protections, regulations, and the social safety net that so many rely upon while increasing the power of corporations and military-related industries. 1980 was a 18/9 Universal Year and 2016 was a 9 Universal Year, so there are some differences in the overall energy that was exercised. What was similar was the underlying 9 energy. So, with that being said, we must exercise great caution and we must hold our leaders accountable as we move forward. If we are not careful, America could take another hard turn to the right and our country as we currently know it could be dramatically altered.
The 20th century was filled with 19/1 Universal Years with only 1900 being a 10/1, the beginning of a new century. So far in the 21st century, we have had one 10/1 Year, 2008. And now, we have our second with 2017. Looking forward, we have a 10/1 Universal Year happening again in 2026, 2035, 2044, 2053, 2062, 2071, and 2080. For the first eighty years of this first half-century, the world will have a transitional/transformational year every 9 years. It's as if the Universe is giving us an opportunity to continually reset until we get to where we need to be. 10 is a Karmic number and it relates to an experience that has been chosen on the path and it cannot be avoided. Transitional and transformational in the realm of the individual and individuality, it is a continuation of the turning point axis of 2016/9 and 2017/10/1. This is a year that is a combination of all the lessons from the previous years, 1-9 and with it comes the challenge to put into balanced application conditions that are for the good of all mankind. As we move forward, we will be made to be quite aware of the fact that the only constant is change.
In the Tarot, 10 is The Wheel of Fortune and represents among other things, rotation and cyclicity. Everything is in the process of change; with change being the only constant. It can also indicate luck, a turn for the better, a new cycle, and innovative ideas resulting from past experiences. We are entering an initiation period in which decisions of great importance are made.
In the constant that is the Universal cycles of 9, as in basic Numerology, 9 is the combination of all the traits and characteristics of the previous 8 numbers (1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8=36=9). As the end of every cycle, 9's job is to take what was accumulated and learned during the 9 years and turn around and hand it off to the 1 of the next cycle. It is through this method that wisdom, knowledge, lessons, and more are passed forward into the future. Also passed along are the negative energies and activities that were not discarded in the 9 Year (2016). As I have shared on many occasions, those things that do not serve the greater and higher good of everyone, and that are not discarded, will only exacerbate moving forward. “If you think it was bad before...just wait!”
In conclusion, I am personally quite unsure what 2017 will bring about. I know what the numbers say, and in that information I have great faith, yet because each number has both positive and negative aspects, we must individually and collectively make a decision as to on which side of the ledger we wish to reside. It can be a year of many new beginnings. A year that holds within its bosom a wonderful opportunity to make the world a better place. This is a year that is filled with great potential for wonderful things. It holds the possibilities for many great and beneficial events taking place which could have a great and positive impact on the world and its citizens. Conversely, 2017 also holds the potential to turn onto something that future generations will look back at in horror and disbelief. The continuing rise of right-wing governments does not bode well. The move towards greater authoritarianism should frighten everyone. I caution everyone reading this to take the time to educate yourself on the facts of events. Do not just sit back and take someone's word for something...especially if it sounds too good to be true. Beware the false prophets and charlatans selling you a bill of goods that includes unrealistic goals and messianic musings of greatness and grandeur. 2017 is a year to take back your personal power. It is a year to rise up and speak up loudly and consistently about injustice, inequality, and unfairness. The underlying 1 of the 10/1 Year is about the individual. For the world, it provides the opportunity to begin anew and for the collective to be positively affected, then with that in mind it is imperative that each and every one of us do our part in making this a better world.
It is my great wish that goodness and light become the prevailing attributes and attitudes of our world. Hold the light for yourself and do whatever you can to make sure it is passed forward. Be the global citizen you wish everyone could be. Connect to your source. Connect to Mother Earth. Connect to whatever it is that gives you your strength and conviction. Do not back down from adversity. And, stand up to oppression. The chances that we miss in 2017 may not come around again for another 9 years and by that time, it could be too late.

There is an old adage that a country gets the government it deserves. Has America reaped the results of centuries of bigotry, hatred, greed, and disenfranchisement with the results of the 2016 election? Sadly, in many ways I personally believe we did. I know that many are upset yet I believe we must allow this to play out. There are huge lessons to be learned here and there are reasons that things followed the course that they did. My perspective is this:
Donald Trump is a caricature of the absolute worst of an overly narcissistic person who is the more-than-willing recipient of the adulation of an overly curious-about-others culture that reveres wealth and power more than the personal well-being of everyone involved in society. And, he is that caricature WRIT LARGE! He is the epitome of our short-attention span culture that glorifies some of the worst of our society through reality TV and other mediums. Facebook and other social media platforms have made everyone a 'celebrity' and too many are swept away by the images they seek out and the unrealistic images they believe they want to be. The profane and absurd are raised on pedestals and worshiped. It is acceptable to be rude and disrespectful because that's what people see on TV. The healthy images and role-models are lost in a shitstorm of self-serving celebrity. America showed me that it isn't ready for a change away from the old, patriarchal, white-dominated ways with which we have lived since our birth as a nation.
We had an opportunity to move in a more humane and progressive fashion. In a way that would have insured that every citizen and person living in this country would have been afforded basic things that would help them move upward in society. And, the system made sure we were not afforded that true opportunity.
We had an opportunity to move towards the matriarchal society that is coming and away from the misogyny and male-power dominated culture in which we live. And, we were fearfully and angrily driven away from it in a fashion that was all too familiar and far too out-of-date.
So, we end up with what we have.
Should we despair? Perhaps, but only temporarily. Should we be angry? Yes, if that's the way you choose to go, but make certain that anger is channeled into action and participation. Should we make certain that we stand up and be heard? Without a doubt. Raise your voice. Participate if by no other means than regularly calling your legislators' offices and letting them know when you are not happy with how they are conducting THE PEOPLE'S BUSINESS.
Personally, I believe that this whole thing may implode under its own weight of greed, chicanery, lies, and misdirection. If there is not enough LOVE to fill the void when it does implode then we are in for an extremely rough haul. Because any ensuing chaos will be driven by Hate and Fear. And we all know the type of adversaries they can be, more often than not through our own personal life experiences, personal circumstances, and lives. If one is aware of their environment, it will also be seen by observing the world around you moving throughout the year. 2017 is a year with great potential. But the course that we follow must be true and driven by love. And compassion. And consideration. And understanding. And, most important of all, an overwhelming desire to bridge the gap of differences and strive towards living together in harmony. With each other and with the planet.
The 1 represents the Individual. Independence. Ideas. Initiative. All those words begin with “I”. Ask yourself: What will I do to bring about the necessary change?
I wish everyone the very best of 2017. Do your part to make it a good year. If you don't. You lose your right to complain...about anything.
Blessings of Love & Light
Happy New Year.

DONALD JOHN TRUMP
A SEXUAL PROFILE
In the course of working with Numerology over the past 32 years, I have developed the habit of analyzing names, and if possible, birth dates of people in the news. I even analyze the names of the characters in the many books I read to see if their personality/behavior coincides with their Numerological profiles. With that in mind, I have of course, taken a look at the profile of Donald John Trump, republican candidate for president. In a previous essay* I presented the charts of Trump, Clinton, and Sanders to demonstrate what their Expression vibrations meant as they are represented in the election process. I present this information for your own, personal consideration. It is up to the readers to discern for themselves whether or not this should be given serious thought.
In my book, YOU KNOW YOUR NAME...LOOK UP YOUR NUMBERS**, Chapter 14 is about 'Numerology and Sexuality'. The chapter is devoted to explaining what the major numbers in a chart represent for the individual when it comes to sex, sexuality, and sexual behavior proclivities. It is from this information that I have derived the following sexual profile of Trump.
This would be the natural preference, or the direction that gives an individual the most satisfaction. This is the place of 'secret desires', the fantasy world that we all have in our sexuality. Often this energy is repressed or inhibited, but when it is tapped into, it brings untold pleasure and delight!
7 - The SEVEN views sex from two different points, both masculine and feminine and because of this, there may be bi-sexual or gay tendencies underlying their sexual drives. The natural tendency of the SEVEN is to be analytical, and they may be somewhat picky or critical of their sexual partners. The SEVEN likes unusual things, and their sexual desires may be somewhat kinky, and in some cases, perverted. The SEVEN may use sex as an escape from their everyday life or their problems. Sevens may also have a tendency to be sexual addicts, as well as having addictions to drugs, alcohol, or other stimulants or mind-altering substances and situations.
This would be the individual's instinctive reaction to sex and sexual situations. This number also shows how others would view the individual, although that perception may not be grounded in any reality of the person being viewed. If an individual is not in touch with their fantasy side (Soul Urge) this may be the dominant characteristic sexually.
7 - (Neither masculine or feminine)-The SEVEN may attract others because they are seen as different and somewhat strange in their sexual habits. This individual may be somewhat out of the ordinary, and may appear aloof to others. Their approach to sexuality may take on somewhat of an intellectual approach. They may also be somewhat inhibited or repressed while holding a perverse interest in different sexual activities.
The Expression constitutes the ultimate attitude of an individual sexually. The fully integrated person will be comfortable with their sexuality and will readily exhibit their true sexual nature as demonstrated by their Soul Urge. To truly understand how this will manifest, read the Soul Urge and Personality/Image number in relation to the Life Path/Birth Force number, as well as the Inclusion Table (the Karmic Lessons) for numbers that are missing in an individual's name. This interpretation will give you a very clear-cut idea of the sexuality of the person you are charting.
5 - (Neither masculine or feminine) - The FIVE may possess restlessness with regards to sex. They get bored easily, and are constantly looking for new and additional stimulation. Consequently, they are open to just about any type of sexual activity. They derive a great deal of pleasure from indulging in pleasures of the senses and have a real talent for sex. This quality can lead to a gigolo/hooker type of mentality.
THE LIFE PATH/BIRTH FORCE or DAY OF BIRTH
This number (either the Life Path or Day of Birth) will provide an indication of whom you are destined to wind up with. The greatest compatibility is shown when the Life Path and Soul Urge numbers are the same, i.e. one person's Soul Urge is the same as their partners Life Path, and vice versa.
14/5 - (Day of birth) - The FIVE Day of Birth likes unusual partners and may not seem choosy, although they are turned on by physical appearance. This turn-on will be in the "eyes of the beholder," but their partners will tend to have some overriding, appealing physical characteristic(s). There may be a free-spirited approach to their sexual activities and they may not have a desire to stay with anyone for an extended period of time. Many times, they have no real desire for a relationship, preferring a series of sexual partners. They may also have a proclivity for extreme behavior.
13/4 (Life Path) - This individual may take a very disciplined approach to their sexual activities, almost wanting to have a schedule. Their approach may be very serious, and they don't like much foreplay. Restriction, bondage, whips, chains and the like may turn them on. They may love to have sex in a vehicle.
In my work with Numerology, I have always placed a great deal of emphasis on the CHALLENGES. The Challenges are the major issues in life and are ultimately obstacles to achieving wholeness. They are also indicative of behavior patterns and tendencies that create problems in living life and, can often lead one into therapy. Although the Challenges cover specific periods of time, they can be at play throughout the lifetime, especially if they are not dealt with and overcome during the requisite time frame.
Donald Trump has a 1 Challenge in the 1st position, which would have covered the first 31 years of his life. This would indicate that during his early years he was subjected to authority figures creating problems for him in how he lived his life. Difficulties with authority can lead to rebellion and a tendency to challenge anyone who tells him what to do, and how to do it. It is also an indication that there was a strict, authoritarian figure in his family of origin, someone with whom he clashed repeatedly. His 2nd Challenge is a 3 which would indicate problems and/or issues in the realm of his self-expression and self-esteem. From what I can surmise from observing him, his tendency is to overcompensate and he then becomes overbearing and aggressive in putting himself out there. He may have a very strong and visceral reaction to rejection and with his domineering personality, feels that it is acceptable for him to push himself onto others. The 1 energy in his chart is below average which would add to his internal sense of inadequacy, exacerbating the self-esteem issues. Donald's 3rd Challenge is a 2. The 2 Challenge is the challenge of patience, tolerance, and acceptance of others. My interpretation of this is that he has no use for people who he deems inadequate or who are not up to his self-proclaimed lofty standards. This would help explain his lack of tolerance for those who he perceives to be 'different'. Most important is the Lifetime Challenge which in this case is a 4. The worst case, human dynamic associated with the 4 Challenge is major control issues. This will manifest in a tendency towards wanting to control people and situations and, at times, a wavering lack of self-control. Couple this with his 13/4 Life Path and the fact that he has 3-4s in the spelling of his name, and you have an individual for whom control is a priority and who will exercise that control in any manner he deems necessary to achieve his desired results. As restrictive as the 4 energy can be, not being able to control oneself is a condition of the 4 Challenge and is something that can certainly lend itself to behavior that may not conform to accepted norms.
In summary, my impression of Donald Trump is that he most certainly is capable of and prone to, the behavior for which he is accused. I have said for a long time that based upon the double-7s in his major numbers that “what you see is not what you get” is the operative phrase when considering Trump. There is another whole Donald Trump hidden behind the glitz and over-the-top flamboyance with which we are familiar. Beware of those who do not truly reveal themselves and who show only what they believe are the things you wish to see. Fortunately, in today's world, secrets are more difficult to keep. It is up to you, the reader, to discern for yourself. Take the time to see who is truly standing behind the curtain.
I make no claim as to whether or not this information as presented is verified by any source. It is based solely upon my experience of 32 years doing Numerology.
It is important that you vote in this most important election. America is at a turning point. The electoral decisions that are made in November will resonate for the next 36 years (at a minimum). Read my previous essays on what the 9 Universal Year of 2016 means and represents and what is in store for America in its 20/2 Personal Year. Both essays are on my website blog.

The United States: 20/2 Personal Year
On July 4, 2016, the United States entered its 20/2 Personal Year. In the 9 Universal Year* that is 2016, this number holds even more significance. This Universal Year is a year of endings and turning points. As a nation, the decisions we make and actions that we take, are going to have a major impact on where we go as a country moving forward. Wrong turns and wrong behavior will only serve to amplify, magnify and exacerbate the many problems that face our nation and we could see things worsen in ways that may be hard to comprehend as I write this. The other side of that equation is that things can improve if the decisions that are made and actions that are taken are things that include everyone and truly serve to improve the conditions of the common good.
And, that is why the characteristics and identifying factors of the America's 20/2 Personal Year become even more important. Being a year of turning points, decisions, awareness, adaptability, and reconstruction, the driving and dominant forces should be ones of harmony and co-operation.
During the course of this 20/2 Personal Year, the United States must begin giving serious thought to our current situations and then using that information to help us create plans for moving forward. This is a year that has great potential to be transitional in the realm of seeing both sides of all situations and then finding the ways in which we can work together to resolve our problems and differences. By weighing all the facts and details we will be better equipped to bring about a consciousness that is inclusive of a new awareness. An awareness that will help overcome difficulties. Harmony is a key word in this dynamic and it is imperative that we come together as a nation in bringing it about. We should all be working for the common good of bigger and better things that promote harmonious relationships between people. During this transitional, and possibly trans-formative year, we must be decisive in our thoughts and actions and we must follow through on those decisions. If we do not do so, we run the risk of increased restlessness and uneasiness.
Another aspect of this 20/2 Year is the possibility of sudden events that will require turning point decisions. We must heed the events that are dramatic and/or traumatic in nature for these will be the times that afford us the greatest opportunities to bring about positive and long-term changes in our country and society. This year is a time that requires new thoughts, feelings and actions. We must train ourselves to see and be aware of the alternatives while considering the pros and cons of various situations. As a nation we will be afforded the chance to learn about ourselves as a nation and how adaptable we are, or can be. With the underlying 2 energy of the year, this is a time when a stronger female energy may take center stage, not to replace the dominant male energy, but to show us that what is required is a symbiotic relationship between the male and the female in order to create a more balanced, compassionate and tolerant environment that will enable us to move forward towards a new and more all-encompassing paradigm.
The period of time from July 4, 2016 until July 3, 2017 has great potential to be a period of growth for our nation. The seeds of our future are germinating and looking to take root so the country must all learn to use the energies of the period wisely. This is a time for fine-tuning the plans to bring cohesiveness and unity back to the forefront of our political and societal dialogues. We should not resist the need for change. Instead, we must become more adaptable and re-introduce common sense into our thoughts and actions. During the course of this year we may be afforded many opportunities for increased spiritual insights and and overall enlightenment. The 20/2 Personal Year is a time for revelations and a spiritual awakening that assists us in bringing forth new plans, purposes and ambitions. In Numerology, the 2 also represents duality, the male/female, yin/yang energy of life. The time is ripe for us to bring about greater balance in all that we do and to insure that everyone is included while we work to eliminate the inequalities and inequities of our current situation.
On the global stage, the United States must become a more active mediator and go-between in helping to resolve the problems that beset every corner of the globe. Again, harmony is a key word and a useful dynamic in solving the problems. It is incumbent upon us as a nation to work towards bringing about greater co-operation between nations. We need to diligently work for the goal of fostering peace proposals and peace treaties wherever, and whenever possible. This energy of the 20/2 Personal Year is conducive for creating multiple collaborations of ideas in both politics and industry. This is a time during which we should strengthen friendships while working with others and not going it alone. Each and every one of us need to work for the common good of bigger things that have their roots in harmonious relationships between people.
The negative side of the 20/2 energy engenders apathy and indifference by our leaders in both politics and industry. If not properly exercised the negative 2 will bring about vacillation over important decisions that will impact us all. We must also be aware of the potential for making careless and costly mistakes in politics and industry. In other words, should we not find a way to correct our course, we will be relegated to an increased exacerbation of our current ills and, in this author's opinion, this will only bring about greater divisions and unrest. All of which will lead to greater upset and the great potential of increasing schisms in the realm of race and religion.
The 20/2 Personal Year for the United States comes with a 2 Challenge for the year. The 2 Challenge is the Challenge of co-operation and sensitivity. As a nation we must work to develop and enhance the qualities of courtesy, consideration and patience. We must learn to deal with, and have extensive dialogue around the topics of hurt feelings, jealousy, xenophobia, bigotry and the fear of those people who may be 'different' from us, while also learning to handle the situations that can be caused by the lack of patience and tolerance. It is these very conditions that must be handled that will continue to stifle any positive interactions and movements in these areas. Tact and diplomacy must be learned while we also learn to be thoughtful, obedient, devoted, and generous. As a nation of individuals, we must each learn to be ourselves while in the company of others and simultaneously allowing others the same latitude. We must all beware of a tendency to become a 'doormat' for others, brought on by our inability or unwillingness to speak up for ourselves. And, speaking up for ourselves means that everyone's voice has equal weight and bearing in the conversations.
During the period of time that covers our election in November, the Challenge is a 5. This is the Challenge of learning the value and meaning of freedom and balance. This Challenge cautions against the abuse of freedom and urges the country to learn to use freedom correctly. Adjustment and change are two key words, and has been evidenced many times over the past few decades, the country seems to possess a fear of change. The world is changing. Our country is changing, and this election will be extremely important in determining whether we will move forward into a new future, or recklessly hold onto a past that has exceeded its 'use by' date. Opportunities for change will be presented and if refused, the associated circumstances will become more and more dramatic and frequently lead to situations where there will be no choice in the matter…. changes will have to be made. The key here is to develop the element of curiosity and learn to explore outside the artificial parameters that have been set. We must learn to adjust to change easily and discard what is not useful in life. The 5 Challenge will also indicate restrictions on freedom. BALANCE and FOCUS are key words with the 5 challenge.
Blessings of love and light!

THE NUMEROLOGY OF THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION CANDIDATES
This essay has been written from the perspective of the Numerology of the election. Other than at the end when I state my personal opinion, this is a non-political look at the candidates. My wish is that you read it as such. Not as a political treatise, but as an analysis of the people who are currently remaining in the race (as of the date of this writing). The contrasts are presented to illuminate what each candidate represents, not what my choice or political beliefs dictate. - MJF.
As I write this essay in mid-June of 2016, there are currently three, major remaining candidates in the running for the presidency of the United States. They are Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. My intention here is to present a look at the candidates solely through the lens of the Numerology of their Expression numbers (the sum of all the letters in their name and who they must be in this lifetime). I found it interesting that the Expression numbers of these three are consecutive numbers and upon reflection, I realized that they represent a very distinct progression in what they stand for and reflect in the macro-picture of the metaphysical aspects of the world. In essence they each represent a phase in the process of moving from where we have been and in many ways currently are, to the place we must be with a transitional phase bridging the two points. FIVE, SIX and SEVEN are the middle numbers of the numerological procession from 1 to 9. In this case, the 5 would be the starting point, the 6 would be the middle ground allowing for the transition to the final number in the sequence, the 7.
I will begin with an overall definition of what the number means.
FIVE (5) - Expansion/Balance. The human condition. The lower mind.
The number FIVE is the middle number between 1 and 9, thus it represents the fulcrum on which all other numbers balance. Consequently FIVE is a representation of balance. It is the second of the most commonly occurring numbers in a name and provides the qualities of change, adaptability, mobility, and imagination as well as a sense of adventure and curiosity. FIVE is also a representation of the five human senses, so it will also provide an inclination towards indulgence in “pleasures of the senses” if shown in abundance. In ancient Greece, FIVE was the number of man and was a representation of the five elements of fire, water, air, earth and psyche. It is a representation of travel, change, and movement.
FIVE can express too much freedom and adventure and it needs to be responsibly channeled into positive action. The restlessness will be cured by the appearance of:
SIX (6) – Responsibility and healing. The place of resetting the paradigm while creating an environment that is all encompassing and nurturing for all.
The number SIX represents a sense of responsibility, being conscientious, the home and family, purpose, law, and the cosmic parent. Six brings harmony, truth, justice and a sense of balance to its environment. It also is indicative of the mother and the father, along with the teacher, health care worker, and counselor. SIX is the healer. It is an energy that strives to take care of others and so is indicative of service to others. There is a need to balance the desire to be of service to others with the demands and needs of the family and home.
The SIX lacks sensitivity to spirituality. It is too willing to accept life without exploring the deeper meaning to gain understanding. This lack of spirituality leads to the need for the:
SEVEN (7) – Knowing/Learning. The place we must move towards. A place of learning and understanding that the world is more than the physical plane. The higher mind.
SEVEN is the seeker and represents the inner self and spirituality, along with the powers of analysis and understanding. It seeks to uncover the hidden facts and meanings of things and has a thirst to know and understand. It is a number of religion, intuition, the occult, the mystic, the researcher, the teacher and the writer. It has a strong interest in mathematics and science and in understanding the rhythm and inner workings of the world in which it lives. Since research, analysis and understanding need solitude, the SEVEN feels a need to be alone, away from crowds, preferably in nature. It prefers to spend its time with like-minded individuals and those who have an elevated consciousness. Its goal is one of one of perfected thinking. It is these qualities that ascribe the sacred image that SEVEN holds. Knowledge is necessary to build on intuition (if you are going to go on your feelings, it would be a good idea to know what it is you are feeling).
To further expound upon these descriptions, let's take a look at a deeper meaning of what they represent in the context of this essay and the Numerology of how this plays out in this year's election.
The FIVE, which is the first number is this sequence of three numbers is a reflection of from where we are coming and to a great degree, where we currently are. It represents the old ways that are in need of being removed from our existence as human beings or greatly altered to better reflect a nation that promises equality for all. It shows the lower mind and the ego as represented by the human condition and the five senses. With its close association with the human condition and its very physical being, this number appeals to the ego-driven mind and experiential extremes of human behavior. It shows the pleasure-driven aspects of living and in many instances it is rooted in the basest aspects of living life, e.g. pleasure for the sake of pleasure and ego gratification. By not giving much thought to the aspects of the higher mind, the Five stays rooted in the drive for money and materialism, thriving on greed and creating and maintaining a separation from those things that are necessary for us to improve and grow as a nation. While the Five has an aspect of change and transition, if it gets caught up in the pleasures of living it may opt to stay where it is, forsaking growth and movement for the sake of 'living in the moment'.
The FIVE Expression is the person who lives for, and learns from, experience. This person is easily bored and quite curious. They will thrive in a situation where they have opportunities to be a traveler. This is not an office worker as their restless nature will chafe with the restrictions of being in one spot, doing the same thing repeatedly. They work best in a job that requires movement. The FIVE Expression needs constant stimulation and excitement. They are quite adaptable while being quick-minded and quick-acting. This person is impulsive, daring, action driven, and may get angry if restricted. This Expression number is creative and their curiosity leads them to be a pioneer in new ventures. The FIVE is also drawn to social activity and they are a magnet to which others are drawn. They have great sexual appeal and will usually be attractive, even if in a somewhat off-beat manner. Their sexuality is often subtle but noticeable. In relationships, the FIVE must have independence and freedom. If provided this, they will be loyal companions and mates. Negative aspects of this Expression are personalities that are moody, irritable, and high strung. They may be restless and shiftless, with a tendency towards pleasure above all else. They may also have a tendency to be outspoken, controversial and rude. Their curious nature and active minds may be hard for others to handle. The FIVE has a casual, 'live for the day' attitude and consequently money comes and goes in their lives.
The SIX, which is the second number in this sequence is a representation of the responsibility and service to others that is necessary to rein in the excesses of the FIVE. In the context of this sequence it also represents an energy that is torn between wanting to maintain the status quo while at the same time, holding on to that which is. It shows us the place to which we must transition as we move forward on our quest to reach the higher mind and an all-encompassing attitude of oneness and equality. As an indicator of the female energy associated with being the “mother”, it is a number that looks to do right for the many through its actions and its service in pursuit of the common good for the community.
The SIX EXPRESSION is the number that thrives in positions of service to others. This number is the homemaker and is truly 'the marrying kind'. This person is friendly, and a loyal and trusted friend, who makes friends easily. A SIX has a great sense of responsibility and will gravitate toward, and take on positions that require it. There is an idealistic quality that is a very strong part of this individual's make-up. They are very community oriented and become involved in local projects surrounding their home, schools and the town in which they reside. This also leads them to be a pillar of the community where they live. The SIX Expression has a great appreciation for things of beauty, the home, marriage, family, the arts, music and literature, and all these things are enjoyed and loved. The person with this number is respectful of self and others. They embrace taking on responsibility for themselves, their family, and others, in some instances, even strangers. In so doing, they are loving and soft-spoken, as well as helpful and concerned with the well-being of self and others. A caution with this number is that it may put self before others, often to the detriment of themselves. The SIX is prudent and respectful and is not a risk taker. They are conscientious and may be demanding of self and others to behave in a way that is beneficial to all. Negative conditions of this number are tendencies to be smug, conceited, outspoken, and meddlesome. They may also be a worrier or exhibit co-dependent behavior in relationships. Also in relationships, they should be aware of being jealous or a domestic tyrant. Other strong negative traits are that the person may be overly opinionated and stubborn and likely to dig in their heels, creating situations where they then have difficulty retracting their position.
This leads us to the final number of the sequence, the SEVEN. In this instance, the SEVEN represents the higher mind and the collective consciousness coupled with the idealism of wanting things to be the way we wish they could be or better, know the way they should be. With its innate and natural ability and willingness to question 'why' it is a number that does not easily accept the status quo. In many ways it is all-knowing and what it does not know it seeks to learn and understand. It is strongly based in its intelligence, intuition and spirit. Being of the higher mind it possesses the innate understanding of the way things are and the way things should be. It is the number that is perfectly suited to lead us into the 'new world', a world of inclusion and respect for the fact that we are all in this together. The number that “knows” and seeks to create an environment that is reflective of that knowing. The SEVEN sees the future and works to bring it about in a way that incorporates all that is necessary to make things right for everyone.
The SEVEN Expression is the number of the scientist, mathematician, researcher, analyst, teacher and writer, as well as the psychic, medium, occult teacher, and spiritual counselor. This person is both philosophical and intellectual. Independent and desirous of privacy, this is the solitary researcher, the seeker of knowledge, information, and wisdom. The SEVEN has a great interest in science, mathematics, analysis, and technology. He is the person who looks for the "why" of things and spends his life on a quest for understanding. A perfectionist by nature, the SEVEN Expression may demand more of others than is possible as they have high standards and expectations of others. This is a number of trial and tribulation (as a reason for living). This individual is insightful and intuitive, possessing great understanding, sympathy and sensitivity to the people and the world in which he lives. The overwhelming desire to know and learn may lead to travel and adventure, as the SEVEN has an almost unquenchable thirst to unlock the secrets of the universe. With its keen and inquisitive mind, this individual is also a puzzle master. The SEVEN Expression is not overly demonstrative although they possess a deep well of emotions. This person must find a way to express these emotions as it may lead to anger and frustration if not shown. They may usually be quiet and withdrawn, and are often labeled stuck-up or aloof. Because the SEVEN understands, they may appear unreasonable, as they expect others to do likewise. In consideration of their naturally introverted nature, they may seek compatibility more than love. They are not overly concerned with image, but more about what makes the person. With a keen mind, they are inquisitive and demanding of others, but they do not react kindly to same. In dealing with a SEVEN, one must understand that they will reveal themselves in their own time and on their own terms. If pushed or confronted with nosy people, they may be inclined to withdraw deeper into their shell. Negative characteristics of the SEVEN are a tendency to be sarcastic, unreasonable and argumentative. They may also be shifty, a schemer, a liar, or abusive. Because of their ability to discern the person below the surface, they may use that information in a manipulative fashion.
In reading these descriptions, you may have been able to discern for yourself which number applies to which candidate. The FIVE is Donald J. Trump, representing from where we are coming and where we currently are, stuck in the aspects of the lower mind. An in-your-face template for much of what is wrong in America today and a huge representation of the great imbalances that exists.
The SIX is Hillary Rodham Clinton, the transitional figure who can guide us (perhaps temporarily) through a period that allows us to reject and move past the aspects and conditions of the old as we prepare to move into a new paradigm. She brings to the table the energy of the feminine that is needed to balance and perhaps counteract the overwhelming male influence that guides our country. Change takes time and transition is a part of that change.
That leaves Bernie Sanders being the SEVEN, showing us the great possibilities of what can be in a country that once again (or, perhaps for the first time) provides an all-inclusive attitude and equality for everyone. An energy not constrained by the rules and dogmas of the old but instead possessing a willingness to move forward into new territory. Moving forward with a sense of spirit and intellect that can transport us beyond that which is keeping us stagnant in a system that is in serious need of overhaul. Bernie is showing people that there is an alternative to the dark side of politics and he is doing what he needs to do which is to show that there is an alternative and that there is an audience for that alternative. The seeds of the revolution have been planted. Unless you know of a plant that springs forth immediately as soon as you put the seeds in the ground, then you must exercise patience and work for the changes that are desired.
It is this author's opinion and belief that change is extremely necessary for America. As I referenced in my earlier essay about the 9 Universal Year that is 2016 (www.michaeljohnfierro.com/blog), this is a year of endings and we must make a concerted, collective effort to rid ourselves of those things that no longer serve the common good. In the realm of endings, I believe we are also seeing the beginning of the end of the political parties as they are currently constructed. The splintering that is occurring may very well lead to a move towards a multi-party political system as opposed to the two party system that has dominated the country for a majority of the last 160 years. In many ways, the three remaining candidates show us all the many differences between the past, present and future in a very dramatic fashion. I have previously said that this is not only a turning point year, but a turning point election. Not since 1980 has America been faced with such a monumental choice in how we move forward. 2016 is the final year in a 36-year cycle that began in 1980. Where do we wish to go moving forward? Who do we wish to be as a nation? When it comes right down to the basics, what vision do you, the individual have for the future? In what type of country do you wish to live and more importantly, what type of country do you wish to leave for your children and grandchildren? Will we continue to live in a country beset with the ugliness and problems associated with racism, bigotry, xenophobia, inequality, gender biases, homelessness and poverty? Do we wish to continue living in a nation that is more concerned with money, military and power than it is the well-being of each and every one of our citizens? Or, will we decide that it is time to recognize that the America dream encompasses more than the aspirational desires of acquiring more for the individual at the expense of anyone else?
Even though I am a Bernie supporter, based upon my analysis and interpretation of the numbers, it is my personal belief that Clinton will win as she represents the shifting paradigm away from the patriarchal towards the matriarchal. She is the past, present and future and she may very well be a one-term president, serving as a place holder for an even better and more divergent choice in the next election. Of course, this will be entirely dependent upon how much progress we make between 2017 and 2020. Bernie has shown us what can be and, in all probability, will be in the future. He shows us that politics is not about the one or a few. It is about everyone...we the people. It seems to be a theme and a construct that he understands better than either of the other candidates. Trump shows us what we are and from whence we came and demonstrates in a very loud fashion, that it is time to move away from that energy. He is the ugliness and dark, shadow side of America writ large and, in many ways is serving the purpose of putting it in our faces while forcing us to look at ourselves in the mirror. So, the final decision of you, the reader is obviously up to you. No matter your choice, give it long and deep thought. Give consideration to the type of country, and the type of leader you wish to have to move America into the future. Step away from political affiliations and make your decision based upon humanity and the common good for the choice we make this year will lay the groundwork for not only the next 4 years but also, the next 36 years.
It is my deepest desire and prayer that the collective awakening takes root and deeply embeds itself in the very fabric of our nation. The decisions made this year will have an extreme and defining impact for the next 36 years. Reflect on that thought.
This is about much more than politics.
Peace, love and light.

2016 – A UNIVERSAL 9 YEAR
2016 is a 9 Universal Year. The final year in the current 9-year cycle, this year will be a culmination of all that has preceded this year in the cycle that had its beginnings in 2008. It would behoove us all to go back and review the events of 2008 (especially the 'seeds' that were planted in 2008) and the ensuing years to better understand that which must be dealt with and completed. This is the year in which we must institute a general 'house-cleaning' and let go of the old and that which has outlived its usefulness. 2016 will be a year in which resolving issues and letting go of the old are of paramount importance, for this is a year of completion. The 9 presents the 'great challenge' and will be a test of the full measure of us as a species and in the manner in which we handle our problems, resolve our differences, and take our correct place as the keepers and custodians of our home planet. 2016 will not be easy for it will stage situations that will require both strength and wisdom to meet. Selfishness and greed cannot be allowed to flourish. The 9 is a testing number and demands the natural removal from that which does not serve the higher and greatest good.
The 9 Universal Year requires a balancing of the forces that exist. Conditions and situations that are in arrears or out of balance must be resolved and the resolutions must be equitable for everyone. Events and conditions that are unfinished will block forward progress and will demand continuing attention until these things are resolved or removed. Resistance will be a constant factor until we collectively learn to meet all things with cheer, love, compassion and tolerance.
The overarching energies of the 9 are Universal love, brotherhood, compassion and tolerance. It is incumbent upon everyone to cultivate tolerance, understanding and love of everyone and all things that affect us all. This needs to be a year of increased benevolence and universal social conscience. Love for mankind must be a guiding principle that imbues all that is acted upon. We must all have a view of the big picture while we work to eliminate the useless (especially those things and conditions that create separation and disparity). 2016 is a year during which we separate from our past mistakes, for if we continue to do what we've always done the results run a high probability of being far worse than that which we are already experiencing. 9 is the vibration of the idealist and one who thinks or operates using that principle as a guiding force. With that being said, we must learn to use greater pragmatism in our actions and greater consideration and thought must be used in decisions without an overabundance of idealism or emotion. Upon a foundation built using those principles, will idealism be better able to be a part of the solution and resultant environment.
2016 holds great potential to be a year of unfolding. This unfolding should include an increased interest in things of a spiritual, metaphysical, and universal (in all meanings of that word) nature as we need to move away from the crass materialism, narcissism, bigotry, xenophobia and hatred that is so prevalent in the world today. Replacing that energy must be one that says “We are all one. We are the family of WoMan. We are all in this together. We must act knowing that what affects one, affects all.” As we look towards moving forward, the qualities of positivity, selfless service, attainment, perfection and completion should all be included within the seeds for the new beginnings and the foundation for future growth beginning in 2017, the start of the next cycle. The time is here to become more open-minded and embrace the future with an energy of vast and limitless thinking and believing. 9 includes all the qualities and conditions of all the previous numbers from 1 to 8 and we must look to create a recipe for progress, sustainability, compassion and tolerance that includes all the best qualities of all the numbers.
On the world stage, the possibility exists for treaties to be signed that can help to end the seemingly endless war and strife that is suffocating the world. We may see a strengthening of alliances (on both sides of any conflict) as well as further independence granted to countries, and the various ethnicities of countries around the globe, as we collectively realize that we are all one and that our perceived differences are just that...perceived and the result of man's ego-driven and aggressive tendencies to dominate others. 2016 will create an environment that will test relationships of all kinds be they personal, domestic or international. Events of all kinds may take place quickly with many stops and starts as we continue on the path through changes, transitions and endings.
In the world of medicine we may see new developments of a beneficial nature in the areas of cures and surgical techniques. We may also see action in the world of legal developments with a greater focus being placed on laws that treat everyone more fairly and benevolently. The 9 demands tolerance and compassion and that which does not offer such benefit will be met with opposition. The less tolerant and compassionate that things become, the more likely we are to experience dramatic and reactionary behaviors in response.
On the negative side, the 9 Universal Year energy of 2016 can bring with it situations and conditions that create more intense levels of upset and dissatisfaction throughout the world. If people and nations continue to be too self-serving and concerned with their own personal or political needs rather than those of others and the greater good, then social issues and problems will exacerbate to conditions far worse than what we are currently experiencing. The negative 9 can bring about a rise in intolerance due to the development of the conservative element and all that entails, socially and politically. The seeds of that discontent have been sown in countries around the globe and we must all pay attention to this as we move through the year. In the United States, with our upcoming presidential election this will be something that must be monitored closely as the future of our nation could hang in the balance. During the year people and nations must guard against quick-tempered reactions, greediness, jealousy and selfishness as such behavior will bring about stronger than normal reactions. Social injustices and inequities may very well result in minorities becoming more restless and aggressive in their reactions. We may also experience a level of uncertainty and irregularity in the political and economic processes not seen in quite some time. The negative 9 energy of 2016 may also bring about a prevalence of cynicism as well as increases in, and development of criticism which could lead to further fracturing in the political and social elements of countries worldwide. At its worst, the negative 9 will engender idealism without practical foundation coupled with a complete disregard for any higher source(s) of knowledge, wisdom and guidance.
In looking back at previous 9 Universal Years*, we see constant themes of financial problems and crashes, social unrest, political upheavals, the raising of social consciousness, and a never-ending series of natural disasters and events that can dramatically alter lives and landscapes. Also at play in previous 9 Universal Years were technological advances that changed the way we live our lives. And, although terrorism and terrorist acts seem to be an almost everyday occurrence in today's world, previous 9 Years have also shown themselves to be times of unrest and extreme actions by those wishing to make themselves known while they make their point to the world. On the plus side, 1980 saw the Berlin Wall come down and with it the dismantling of the USSR. 1989 saw the beginning of the end of apartheid in South Africa. 1998 brought about the Good Friday peace accord in Ireland and equal rights for gays in Denmark. A 9 Universal Year can certainly bring forth a full spectrum of events from the very worst to the absolute best and I doubt that 2016 will be anything other than that type of year. A year of extremes...from the best to the worst.
In conclusion, to this author, it feels as though the fabric our our world is being torn in two and we are experiencing the battle between the forces of light and darkness. In many ways, it has never felt more real as ideologies fight it out for the dominant position in governments here in the United States and in other places around the world. A word of caution in these troubled times:
Watch for an increase in extreme politics and political parties based more upon demagoguery/ideology/fear/paranoia and less on workable, all-encompassing solutions.
2016 has great potential to be a turning point in our existence, the direction in which we turn will be determined by the collective voices of everyone speaking up against injustice, inequality, bigotry, xenophobia, and a never-ending war mindset. Will the idealism, compassion and tolerance of the 9 energy be the prevalent force? Or, will we succumb to the negative side of the 9 and indulge in selfishness, immorality, scorn, lack of forgiveness, and impracticality brought about by immense egos looking to shape the world in their image?
Will we reach for the ideals that can make us great? Will we allow everyone to feel as though they are a part of the family of man without prejudice? Will we collectively work towards lifting the veil on the darkness that surrounds us and show it for what it is...a mindset dominated by fear and paranoia?
9 is the number of every man. In order for the good and positive aspects of the 9 to be realized, it is incumbent upon each and every one of us to do our part in working towards creating a world that serves even the least among us. For what harms one, harms all. We can no longer pretend that even one person is not worthy of that which others enjoy. Through the realization and practice of being all-encompassing in all we do can we move towards creating a better world. The alternative is too ugly to give consideration.
2016 can be the beginning of the end of the way things are currently or, it will be the beginning of the end for all we hold dear. The 9 holds within its vibration the entire spectrum from the very best to the very worst. The choice is ours. Be certain your voice is heard. This may be the most important election in the history of the United States. And, other countries around the world will have their own reckonings to consider. One thing is certain, those things that do not serve the greater good and that are not ended or done away with, will become far greater problems moving forward
I wish each and every one of you peace and love. May your lives be blessed with all that is good. May you rise above the pettiness of ego-driven human behavior and embrace the tolerance and compassion that is the 9. Happy New Year!
Blessings of Love & Light

Numerologist/Author of “You Know Your Name...Look Up Your Numbers”
AUTHOR'S NOTE: The year 2016 has been hanging with a heavy energy upon me. We are at a crossroads in the United States and consequently, by extension so is the world. We must search within ourselves and our hearts and each of us must ask ourselves, “In what kind of world do I want to live?” Can we find in ourselves as individuals and collectively, the will and the means to turn away from the ugliness and darkness that permeates the planet? Are we capable of finding and holding the light? Time will only tell. The energy of the Universal 9 Year of 2016 tells us that in order to move forward into the next, and all succeeding cycles, we must rid ourselves of that which does not serve the greater good of everyone. There is part of the 9 energy that is associated with endings. Clearing the detritus of things that no longer work for or serve us, in order to make way for a new and better energy, is of paramount importance.
*Here is a list of important events that have taken place during previous 9 Universal Years:
2007 – The lead-up to the crash of 2008 in the United States. Major worldwide weather and natural events. Introduction of the Tesla automobile. Uptick in mass shootings and terrorism worldwide. Government eavesdropping authorized by George W. Bush. Unrest and protests in various countries around the world.
1998 – Good Friday peace agreement in Northern Ireland. Russian banking meltdown. SE Asia financial meltdown. Fires. Tornadoes. Earthquakes. Hurricanes. Tsunamis. The movement of the European Union toward the use of a single currency in Europe. Scattered terrorist attacks worldwide. Bin Laden issues fatwa.
1989 – Beginning of the end of apartheid in South Africa. Japan stock market crash. Gay equality in Denmark. Berlin Wall comes down. The break-up of the USSR begins. Uprisings in Eastern Europe and China. Europe bans CFCs. US savings & loan crisis. USSR pulls out of Afghanistan. Exxon Valdez disaster.
1980 – Olympics boycott. Mt. St. Helen erupts. Iran-Iraq War. Severe heat wave in US kills 1100. Advances in technology. Reagan elected. Political upheavals in Africa. John Lennon is murdered in NYC.
1971 – Earthquakes and major storms. Beginning of the digital age. Communist China steps onto the world stage. Economic changes in Europe. Rise of social consciousness: Greenpeace forms; anti-Vietnam movement; desegregation through busing.
1962 – Cuban missile crisis. First American in space. Major shift in music, the rise of protest singers. Increased involvement by the United States in Vietnam. Mississippi race riots prompted by the murder of James Meredith. Many countries granted independence.
2015 – An 8 UNIVERSAL YEAR
2015, is the 8th Universal Year in this current 9-year Cycle. This is a year in which the world begins to truly reap what was sown in 2008. The Eight has a strong association with the elements of power, big affairs, big business, money and finances. And, Eight has an extremely strong connection with the concept of Karma (receiving that which you deserve for your actions) and the Universal Laws of return and attraction. If you lay the Eight on its side, it is the symbol of Infinity and the unending cycle of life and consciousness. The number 8 card in the Tarot is Strength. 8 symbolizes form that is solidified in matter. “As you sow, so shall you reap.” the energy of Karma, the Universal Law of Truth, that is cause and effect. As mankind creates, in thought, desire and action, the right vibration manifests on the material plane and we reap the harvest.
Go back to 2008 and consider the many major events that took place throughout the world. In the United States it was the financial collapse/disaster of Wall Street and then a couple of months later, the election of Barack Obama, the first black American president. The latter event was followed by a promise and an agenda set forth by the opposition to do everything in their power to stop Obama from being an effective president. The former events may portend an even greater financial crisis. This is especially true if the groundwork that has been laid over the last seven years was designed to further impugn the integrity of the institutions that serve the greater good, through actions that are not beneficial to the public at large. If steps were taken to truly improve the sector, with the public's benefit and welfare in mind, then this will be a turn-around year for everyone. In this author's opinion, 2015 promises to make all previous years either pale in comparison, or be enough of a negative force that it prompts politicians to begin working for the best interests of everyone. The people of the United States spoke in 2008 and resoundingly said they were for the concepts of hope and change. Can that vision become a reality this year? Or, have we lost our way and have traveled further along the path towards submission to the rich and powerful? This Universal 8 Year presents the stage for the realization of the overwhelming need to unify with the god forces of the Universe. No matter your personal belief, this is the time to align yourself with a more peaceful and loving center. For today's world, the encouragement is to look at the big picture and do what is necessary to bring about grand scale actions that benefit the greater good. 2015 holds great potential for big things to occur that can shake the world
The very positive aspects of the Eight during 2015 include success and progress in the realm of money, finances and rewards for work accomplished. The 8 Universal year can bring about great prosperity for both individuals and businesses. This will in turn lead to great national prosperity and the ripples of success can reach out and touch everyone. In the world of business, 2015 can be a year of increased mergers and take-overs, either hostile or compatibly. This year can also be a year for improving relationships with other countries both politically and economically. Of course, a great deal of activity in this sector will be firmly tied to what groundwork was laid in 2008. Optimistically, we can expect big things in the world and perhaps, a real opportunity for political treaties that will end the strife and conflicts begun in the One Universal Year.
The negatives of an 8 Universal Year are not vibrations or energies that encourage love, peace and understanding. At its worst the Eight can be quite aggressive, angry and vindictive. This approach can be implemented by either governments or businesses, and in the absolute worst scenario, the two working in concert. Greatly dependent upon the moods and beliefs that were put into place in 2008, we can either experience some positive growth and movement or, we can begin to experience greater political anarchy and political unrest. Since the energy of any particular Universal (or Personal Year) is first felt about 4-6 weeks prior to the actual beginning date, the civil unrest that was being experienced (especially in the United States) in the final six weeks of 2014, can be a strong indicator of what lies ahead of us. It is imperative that a dialogue that flows in two directions (think of the sign of Infinity, opposing direction that intersect in the middle as they continue their never-ending movement) is of a positive and inclusive nature, in which all perspectives, attitudes and beliefs are put on the table for discussion. Strident, stubborn voices of opposition and position needs to be marginalized so that the middle ground can take hold to guide the discussion. An 8 Universal Year can be a year of political and social revolutions. If people voted for hope and change (in its purest, most honest form, not the political platitudes) they may begin to truly voice their displeasure with the powers that be who failed to deliver. The 8's dark side can emerge through an increase of anger resulting in tempers flaring and conflicts begun. On the international stage, this could lead to increased aggression created by political motives driven by greed and a lust for power. Conflicts currently being fought could lead to a larger war-style engagement.
In the world of business, 2015 could also see an uptick in big bankruptcies by large companies, with some of that action being triggered by some type of criminal activity. Activity that was uncovered under the influence of the 7 during 2014. Once again, the financial greed that drove the collapse of 2008 may once again rear its ugly head in a new, and even greater round of financial chicanery. Wearing its worst 'face', the Eight is the master criminal.
On the health front, 2015 may see a new round of epidemic diseases. Again, it would be wise to look back at 2008 to see what seeds may have been sown to bring about something this year.
So, where does this leave us, the citizens of the world? How the power of the 8 becomes manifest is the most important aspect. If a peaceful future in which we all coexist with a sense of brotherhood and love is important to you, then raise your voice in 2015. If you were, or are, in favor of true hope and change, then raise your voice in 2015. In this author's opinion, the world is on the brink of a major turning point in its existence and the two paths are very different and distinct. It is important for the people to be heard and considered. It is time for everyone to think, and (perhaps, more importantly) feel for themselves.
The world in the Universal Year 8 of 2015 has great potential for increased wealth and prosperity. For whom should the wealth accrue? Work for your own best interests, but at all times, keep others in mind. The realization that 'we are all in this together' must take firm root in the consciousness of each and everyone of us. Differences must be recognized, acknowledged and accepted. The continuing marginalization of not only individuals, but entire countries, ethnicities and cultures must be recognized for what it is...an attempt to separate and control. The mighty, and ugly power of the 8 cannot be allowed to take hold. Raise your voice. The power lies within each and every one of us.
In closing, remember the sign of Infinity, the never-ending cycle of the law of return. It would behoove each one of us if we gave some time and consideration to the understanding that what we think, feel, say and do shows up in the world. From the micro to the macro. Put forth all your efforts in a positive fashion and it will be returned in kind. The ripples will continue until all are reached and touched by these forces.
My wish you, the reader, is a life of loving thoughts and the experience of having them returned.
I wish everyone the very best the New Year has to offer. I urge you to get out there and be a positive force for goodness and light.
Blessings of Love and Light

ELECTION DAY – 11/4/2014
Tuesday, November 4, 2014 is Election Day in the United States. With the on-going divisions that are pervasive in this country, this is a very important election. Politically, it will have a major impact on how this country moves forward. From a numerological perspective, there are many indicators that reinforce that importance.
November 4, 2014 is a Universal 22/4 Day.
The 22 is a Master Number on the material plane and represents building for the future on a large scale. This is a day in which extraordinary things of far-reaching and long-lasting significance can occur. Tuesday can very well be a day in which the foundation stones for the future are put in place. It is also a day for doing what is necessary to help construct a new paradigm. Consider election day as a day of action. This is a great time to create an organization or system that helps propel us into the future in an important and meaningful way. It is a day for thinking in large, sweeping terms with results that look for the greatest and grandest good for all. This is a day for dealing in practical matters. In other words, this is a day that can very much set the tone and attitude as we move forward. Give great thought to the type of country in which you would like to live and vote accordingly. It is of the greatest importance that everyone moves out of their pre-determined political leanings and takes a long, hard look at the realities of what each side represents. Give some long and deep thought to the policies that will result and the possible fracturing of what already exists. The 22 is conducive to making agreements that will impact all that follows with said agreements bringing about both completion and fulfillment for all.
On the negative side, the 22 can certainly create obstacles to progress coupled with communication problems. At its worst, a lack of rapport can be created leading to long-term disasters that can bring harm to a large number of people. It is important that we guard against extremes and look to create a structured balance in our dialogue and governance.
THE UNITED STATES IS IN AN 18/9 PERSONAL YEAR WITH A 2 CHALLENGE
The 18/9 Personal Year is a year of completion, termination and re-birth. This is the year during which this country makes the effort and takes the time to clean house and get ready for the next cycle (which begins on July 4, 2015). This is a year of transition and this election provides a wonderful opportunity to make the necessary changes to get ourselves on a good footing again. It is a year to examine where we are and rid ourselves of those attitudes, ideas and actions that no longer serve the common good. The 9 demands that we take responsibility for our actions and work from a place of benevolent and selfless brotherhood and humanitarianism. It it time to tie up loose ends and rid ourselves of outmoded and dated ideas so when we enter the 1 Personal Year in 2015, it can be entered without baggage. The 9 provides the opportunity to clear the path so that we can move on to new ideas. It is time to relinquish old associations and seek out new opportunities...opportunities for improvement and progress for everyone. Giving and receiving are hallmarks of the 9 energy and should not be restricted to the few at the expense of the many.
On the negative side, the 18/9 cautions that one should beware of deceptions. Be certain that you are voting based upon truth and not lies that have been propagated to enhance a particular position.
The 2 Challenge for the United States in this 9 Personal Year indicates the need to work together with compassion, tolerance and acceptance. Time and consideration must be given to both sides of any discussion and moving forward should be done after investigation and thought has been exercised for a better understanding of the issues that we face.
FOR THE UNITED STATES, NOVEMBER 4, 2014 IS A 24/6 PERSONAL DAY
FOR THE UNITED STATES, NOVEMBER 4, 2014 IS A 24/6 PERSONAL DAY
The 24/6 Personal Day indicates a time of taking responsibility and acting in a responsible manner in the service to family and others. This is a day of reaping what has been sown in the past. This is a day during which the common good is again emphasized as the representation of care and handling things is emphasized. A day to examine the state of our (the country's) estate and make adjustments and corrections where necessary. This is a good day to pay debts owed and to stretch that concept, it is a day to give to our leaders that which they deserve...be it another term or a termination.
On the negative side, it is important that we take caution to not be inflexible. Expand the thinking to embrace a perspective that may not necessarily be yours and give consideration to the effects of your actions. Above all, do not be stubborn or complacent. This is a day for the country to awaken to the fallacies and faults of our current situation and take the necessary steps to make corrections where needed.
In closing what the Numerology of November 4, 2014 indicates is an Election Day that will have a great impact on the future of this nation. The 22 prompts us to build for the future in a fashion that serves the greatest number of people in the highest way possible. The 9 of the United States' Personal Year encourages us to rid ourselves of those things, ideas and perspectives that no longer serve the greater good. It is time for the common good to become a greater influence in the direction of our country. The 6 Personal Day of the United States is indicates a time to be responsible and take responsibility for what has transpired and work to correct our course in moving forward.
When voting, use your most human and humane thought processes to guide your decisions. This isn't just about political parties and agendas. It is about the direction and future of our country.
Blessings of Love & Light

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!

APRIL 2014 – A UNIVERSAL 11/2 MONTH in a 7 UNIVERSAL YEAR
April is an 11/2 Universal Month which indicates there may be an increase in activities by churches and religions as well as an uptick in other spiritual or metaphysical pursuits. All forms of belief systems may show an increase in followers and people looking for answers to life's questions. In the arena of psychic, intuitive and alternative beliefs, there may be a greater interest in what they have to offer. Followers of various belief systems make take strides to improve the overall situations in the world. This may be the month where concrete steps are taken by the catholic church to move beyond its scandals and negativity and move in the direction of a more benevolent, tolerant and forgiving institution. There is great potential that inspirations can come forth to benefit the greater good. An 11/2 is a favorable time for religious and/or philosophical study as well as the sharing of thoughts, concepts, ideas and ideals. This month can also be a time of spiritual innovation with a greater tendency towards altruism and philanthropy. Wisdom with the purpose of the uplifting of humanity, coupled with revelations and visions can easily propagate positive action and forward movement. April will also be a good time to experiment with new ideas. Because of the duality of the 11, this month may also be a time of tests and challenges in different facets of life and living. This would also apply to things of a global or geo-political nature. It could also bring about a greater interest, or spotlight on things in the world of the arts and artistic endeavors. An 11/2 brings about opportunities for accomplishments in many things (especially in the realm of spirituality, religion and the arts). There is also a need to bring about balance and equity in matters of importance to the masses. Many positive results can be brought about through meditation and teaching.
On the negative side of the energy there is great caution against fanaticism and smugness. Indifference on the part of leaders (both religious and national) will foster more dissension and upset in people. The energy of the 7 Universal Year can certainly lead to greater scrutiny of our leaders with more questions being asked and demanding answers. The 11 not manifested at its highest vibration can create situations in which people are taken advantage of by others while staying silent.
Since this 11/2 month takes place in a 7 Universal Year, the over-arching energy should be one of connecting with your inner self and asking questions...not only of yourself, but of all manner of things that affect your life in the realm of government, finance and more. This is a year in which answers should be forthcoming and those that are hidden must be brought into the light of day. Each individual should use their own intuition and insights to discern for themselves and upon uncovering answers, turn around and share them with your community and the public as a whole.

CHRIS CHRISTIE - A Numerology Profile
The purpose of this essay is not political in nature. Rather, it is a look at Chris Christie by the numbers, which in this case is through the use of Numerology, the ancient esoteric science of number interpretation. This is a presentation of his chart. The reader can draw their own conclusions.
Christopher James Christie, born 9/6/1962 has many characteristics that make him a very good and powerful leader. If properly exercised, Christie's chart indicates that he is capable of doing much in the way of executive leadership and decision-making. He is the type of individual who would naturally gravitate towards positions of leadership and his 'path in life' (In this case, the number is 24/6, a number derived from his date of birth) is one of being of service to others. This number also imbues him with a magnetic personality coupled with strong powers of suggestion over other people. He is able to easily attract to himself the material comforts and positive relationships that one could desire. This number is also conducive to attracting and creating situations in which people of influence, power and authority are ready and willing to help him succeed. Any help that Christie receives goes a long way toward promoting his successes. This Life Path number is also conducive for a strong and loving family life that is capable also, of bringing abundance to the individual. If properly exercised, this number creates a strong desire for truth and justice and places him in a position in which others recognize his sincerity, thus gaining their respect.
On the negative side of the 24/6 Life Path, Christie can be jealous, unfaithful and domineering to the very people from whom he is looking for respect. The energy of the 6 can also make him very stubborn and opinionated as well as being vengeful when crossed. Coupled with the very strong 8 energy that is part of the Numerology of Christie's name, this is not a person whom one would wish to be on the bad side as he can quite easily get angry and in the worst case scenario, very vindictive.
In looking at the Numerology of Chris Christie's name, again, his leadership and executive qualities are quite prominent. He has incredible strength of character and a great ability to understand and solve problems. He has a 13/4 Soul Urge (a number derived from the vowels in his name) and this is a number that brings about 'life & death' situations on a regular basis. In this case, 'life & death' are more symbolic in the events of life as opposed to a physical death. In a nutshell, the 13/4 indicates a great potential for grand attainment and equally great potential for complete destruction. In many ways, this is an 'all or nothing' number and great discretion and thought must be used in all decisions and actions. The 13/4 also brings with it an element of change, and that change may be ever present and ongoing. This is a vibration of constant movement and change with little time allowed for reflection or contemplation. In other words, there will always be something that needs tending. This number bestows Christie with a strong understanding of life and a philosophy grounded in his own personal truths. He has an almost unlimited creative power and an ability to create something positive out of what others may perceive as a lost cause. Using his creativity, organizational abilities and hard work in a positive fashion can create profit and successes where none existed before. Change and transformation are both strong aspects of the 13/4 vibration.
As with all numbers, the 13/4 has a negative side. Overindulgence in unsavory relationships and destructive actions can cause great harm his own life and, in the lives of those who surround him. This can take the form of a complete and total destruction of previously stated goals and ideas. Anger and having a bad temper, coupled with irrational and rash behavior will very much destroy the very thing that he is attempting to build. The underlying 4 of the 13/4 also can indicate very strong control issues. With the 4 in this position, as well as in the Personality/image position and with one four in the spelling of his name, these control issues can be a driving force in how Christie conducts himself and interacts with those who work with, and for him. In many ways, Christie could be considered a 'control freak' who is intimately involved in all that goes on in his world.
Chris Christie has a 22/4 Personality/Image number. This number is calculated using the consonants in his name. This is another facet of his chart that shows his ability to gain great wealth, power and influence in his life. He has potential for greatness and an ability to attract and influence those in his environment. This number provides him with a level of originality and creativity that allows him to solve problems that others believe are beyond being solved. He is a 'big thinker' who sees the big picture and comes up with big solutions. He is a hard worker who (if exercising the number in a positive fashion) is honest and ethical. He is a master director yet he must be quite aware of any tendencies he may have in the exploitation of people and avoid such tendencies at all cost. Too strong a desire for power and control can foster a ruthlessness and disregard for others and will most definitely backfire.
As with all Master Numbers (of which the 22 is one), the caution is to direct all efforts and energy outward for the good of all. Becoming too self-directed and selfish will also lead to problems and obstacles.
Christie's Expression (the number derived from the total of all the letters in his name) is an 8. In Numerology, the 8 is the executive leader who takes on the problems and issues confronting others and works diligently to correct these conditions. It is a number of materialism, business, power and authority and it is important that the number is exercised in a non-negative way for as much as it can bring power and success to an individual, it can also create great problems through its negative manifestation. He can be an inspired, magnetic and original leader who through strong effort and force of will, accomplish much in his lifetime. Diplomacy, persistence and courage are other strong characteristics of this number. With three eights in the spelling of his name, his executive abilities and strengths are even more magnified. Having eight letters on the Physical plane (in the spelling of his name) makes him very much, a natural executive who is very ambitious for power and position. This is a person who likes to accomplish big things and bask in the recognition of his accomplishments. In his personal life, Christie takes great pride in his home and family although his marriage may be based more in a need for security and what it can help him accomplish rather than love.
The most negative of the 8 is the master criminal or, one whose goal is total control and an accumulation of as much wealth and power as possible. If Christie exercises the negative aspects of the 8, he will have quite a temper and is someone to be feared. His anger, and ability to control it, can have quite a detrimental effect on his pursuits and relationships. The negative 8 is a bully, domineering, selfish and (once again) ruthless. This is a person who can quite easily scheme to attain advancement and that which he goes after. Upheaval is a result of such behavior and he must be prepared to face the consequences of his words and actions, although he may very well believe that he can persevere through bluster and threats. For the 8 there is very little in the way of halfway. This is an all or nothing individual. It would behoove Christie to take absolute responsibility for all his actions and handle the consequences accordingly.
Chris Christie's chart also shows a 3 Challenge (derived from the birth date) in the first two positions. The Challenges are the issues in life and the obstacles to wholeness in becoming fully self-actualized. This would show that in his early years, he suffered from issues of self-esteem and self-expression. Coupled with the very strong 8 energy in his chart, he may have developed a bully personality to overcome his own feelings of discomfort or inadequacy.
On his birthday in 2012, Christie entered his 21/3 Personal Year. This vibration is in play until his birthday in 2014. On the positive side, this is a year in which he should express himself fully and use his creative abilities to solve problems and create solutions. This is also a year during which the old order changes and a new, perhaps very different order, manifests. This should be a year of increased travel and interaction with new and varied people. The caution in a 3 Year is always be aware of a third-party interference in your affairs. It is imperative that he pays attention to those in his circle (or outside of it) who create situations that may become problematic. It is very important that Christie maintains an emotional balance in all he does. Problems that arise must be handled and it would be prudent for him to retain legal counsel to assist him in all matters as material loss is a real possibility. He also has a 20/2 Essence (derived by the spelling of his name) and this shows this year to be a transitional year for him in the realm of relationships and interactions with others. There may be a great many lessons to be learned for Christie throughout the year.
In conclusion, Chris Christie has all the traits and characteristics needed to be an effective leader who can foster change for his constituents. He is capable of accomplishing great things and can go quite far in life as long as he pays attention to the details and does not allow his very negative side to become the dominant force. The negative side, and manifestation of the energies of his chart can very much be his downfall. His need to control, his temper and his vindictiveness coupled with a ruthless attitude, may very well spell disaster for him on a monumental scale. Again, I make no claim as to his innocence or guilt in anything in which he is involved. I offer this analysis so that you, the reader, can make a more informed and insightful decision for yourself

2014-A Universal 7 Year
2014, being a Universal 7 Year will bring about a greater reflection on the past so that we may learn how to improve upon it and build for the future. The SEVEN calls for a deeper analysis of situations with greater thought and consideration given to the beliefs and actions which we hold. This is a year for visualizing the future through more research and investigation to better understand the 'why' of things. We must work to engender a calm and steady approach in guiding the course of action. In many instances, people will be looking to master and perfect that which they do, using the lessons of the past as a foundation for improvements in the future, as opposed to beginning new projects and starting from scratch. It will be this type of belief system and attitude that will lead to legislation for national improvement. Patriotism may take on new and deeper meaning without the partisan divide of “...you're either with us, or against us”. 2014 could see an increase in the growth of the GNP of nations around the world and financial improvement is a very strong possibility.
2014 may also bring about a greater interest in nature, farming and agriculture as people work to strengthen their connection with Mother Earth and look to become more contemplative and reflective on the inter-connectedness of life. This could lead to a stronger trend toward conservation and the ecology as people show greater interest and concern. As SEVEN is an 'internal' number we will find that the infrastructure demands greater attention, especially with projects that involve water (supply, delivery, treatment and safety). At long last, we may find a more contemplative and reflective tone being expressed in the media as a more philosophical and metaphysical view of the world and world events becomes more commonplace. 2014 may also bring about more interest in the areas of religion, spirituality, metaphysics, mystical teachings and the occult as people look to better understand themselves and the world and universe in which they live. This may also bring about an increase and awareness of psychic phenomenon and abilities. Many may find inspiration, guidance and knowledge through dreams, intuition, and the awareness and use of previously unknown personal abilities in the intuitive realm. Because of the SEVEN's association with mathematics and science, this year may also provide great advances and discoveries in those worlds as well as in the world of medicine. Overall in societies around the world, we may experience an increase in writing, teaching and the desire to learn which will lead to a greater interest in education and possible improvements and changes in the structures of how we teach and learn. 2014 should also bring about a greater focus on health and well-being both individually and collectively. On the seventh day God rested and in 2014 there may be a collective and individual desire to re-charge, re-assess and re-direct the energies.
On the negative side 2014 may see a rise in satire and sarcasm in the media and the arts as cynicism and a lack of trust maturate in the minds of populations around the world. Close attention must be paid to the movement and actions that took place in 2012 and 2013 as unresolved, festering conditions could again lead to wars although these wars may be more along the lines of civil wars (the American Civil War began in 1861 after years of conflict and dispute around the issue of slavery). If continued discovery of deceptions and malfeasance are brought to light, we may see a sharp increase in the doubting the trustworthiness of our leaders. These conditions could easily lead to a worldwide increase in fear and fear-mongering. It is these conditions that could lead to revolutions and once again, political assassinations. The more negative the environment of governments and their relation to their citizens the more likely we are to see the beginning of radical political movements. Controversy could be a hallmark of much of what transpires as increasingly, actions are taken to 'muddy the waters' of understanding and truth. 2014 could also see an increase in worldwide health problems especially in conditions involving water. As the SEVEN has a potential shadow side, caution must be taken to avoid deceptive business practices. Societal conditions may also lead to a rise in addictions and addictive-type behaviors. Also, the 7's relation with water may be an indicator of increased flooding throughout the world.
In conclusion, the energy of the SEVEN of 2014 must be correctly directed in a positive, life-affirming and beneficial way for everyone. The great potential of higher consciousness, increased education, and greater awareness on the part of both the individual and the collective can go a long way in circumventing and overcoming any problems that may arise. People actively striving to re-connect themselves to our planet, while living in greater harmony with the planet and one another will assist in raising the vibration for all. Much of this growth and awareness will be based upon seeking knowledge, applying that knowledge constructively, and living with a greater degree of spirituality. It is through these efforts that we can do great things, and make great progress in healing.

DECEMBER, 2013 – A Universal 18/9 Month
December, 2013 is an 18/9 Universal Month. This is the final month of the current 6 Universal Year, and is appropriately, a 9 Month...a month of endings and taking inventory. This is significant when one considers that 2014 is a 7 Universal Year and it will be necessary for the world to take stock of what has happened during the year so that it can move forward towards better understanding and self-awareness on all levels. With that in mind, December can be a month during which many projects are successfully terminated and moves are taken to curtail inefficient practices in both government and business. Efficiency experts may be called upon to improve and streamline procedures and policies and as a result, we may see the elimination of unnecessary personnel in various facets of public and private endeavors. Inventories of all types will be undertaken as people, businesses and governments look to shed that which no longer works for the greater, and personal good. This may also be a time during which we see an increasing movement of people as a result of changes and adjustments being made. In the business world, there may be an increase in the buying and selling, or merging of businesses for the purpose of increasing profits or efficiency in operations. The 9 Month is a favorable time to finish things while at the same time, working to eliminate that which is not useful, or purposeful. It is important to remember that situations, conditions and programs that are built on strong foundations will endure, while those that are weak will disappear. The 9 Month can be a time of progress, and to move forward from a position of strength increases the likelihood of successes. It should be remembered that the 9 energy is not an energy that is particularly conducive to beginning new projects, so it would be best to give great thought and consideration to things and postpone moving forward until January (an 8 Universal Month).
As we enter the holiday season, the 9 Universal Month is a time for the enjoyment of friends and family, gift-giving, and doing kindnesses for others. With its characteristics of humanitarianism, philanthropy, benevolence, selflessness and altruism, the 9 energy of December is the perfect time to reflect on the brotherhood of man while understanding and participating in the idea that we are all in this together, and the welfare of one affects the welfare of all. The 18/9 indicates this month to be a time during which healing forces are at work beneath the surface so this would be a good time for everyone, everywhere, to take some time to reflect on the health of our world while giving consideration to what you, the individual, can do to improve the world in which we live. Keep in mind that this month can be a time of evolutionary growth and development as the 9 represents the “all”, and it is the “all” that must be the dominant, driving force in the affairs of businesses, governments, and individuals.
Also, during a 9 Universal Month, public personalities can be quite prominent (even more so than usual) and in a very positive fashion, these individuals could use their fame to foster and promote good through their words and actions. December may also see the passing of prominent people who are held in high estem in the eyes of others.
On the negative side, December may also be a time of tragedy in the world. Considering the worldwide weather and natural events that have devastated the world in 2013, we may see a dramatic end to the year. Geo-political and national strife in countries may also culminate this month in additional tragic events that increase the suffering and pain of innocent people caught in the conflicts. An increase in conflict and/or arguments between parties of opposing views can also result in additional tragedy befalling people. In the world of business, December may also bring about fluctuating stock markets, creating more turmoil in the world of money and business.
Since 9 can be an energy of endings, we may also see an increase in the ending of relationships, friendships, and marriages
As we end 2013, the 9 energy of the month provides everyone with a chance to reflect on your personal life, and an opportunity to take an inventory of your life. Check off those things that no longer serve you, and by extension, the greater good and work towards eliminating the conditions and situations that are past their expiration date. Move forward towards self-improvement and enhancing the world at large through an expansion of your humanitarianism, philanthropy, and consideration of the family of which you are a part...the family of man and the entire world.
I wish each of you the very best of the holiday season and an improvement in all that you do and experience on every level of your life.

NOVEMBER, 2013 – A UNIVERSAL 17/8 MONTH
November, a 17/8 Universal Month, can be a fortunate and beneficial time. The month can be a time of good fortune, and the energy of the month can be used to create benefits from actions. Following the meditative 7 energy of October, it is time to move forward towards accomplishment and gain. This is month during which a need to unify and work together can be paramount. Using our gifts of spirit and exercising the exchange of giving and receiving will go a long way towards smoothing out troubled waters and creating a better sense of brotherhood. This is a month for re-evaluation and consideration of the elements of power and authority. The time is favorable for purposeful, directed activity and we must remember that positive thought = positive actions/results.
In the world of business, November can be a time during which business and public affairs turn profitable. The promise of a better and brighter day is upon us. Opportunities exist for commercial growth and expansion with plans being put into action that create an environment that can breed success. The energy of the 8 can be very good for business, money, finances and possibly business mergers. Good business decisions can result in progress and profitability and an improvement in business and financial matters. The 8 represents (among other things) the law of return and the law of attraction. That which is put forth during November will bring a return of like energy and vibration. The time is ripe for the proper use of talents that may result in money, gifts, advancements, promotions and assistance being the rewards. It is very important to remember that what is put out will be returned (being it either positive or negative) so being truthful, forthright and honest will result in good things happening.
On the negative side of the 17/8 if caution is not exercised, disruptions of projects and enterprises can happen. There could be an increase in bankruptcies due to financial chicanery or mismanagement and there could be an increase in legal actions due to improper business or financial activities. This is also a month in which there is an uptick in crime as the negative 8 can very much be a criminal mindset. With the recent disruptions in government and the resulting ripple effects, caution must be taken that actions taken during the month of November are positive with the goal of betterment and improvement in all aspects of life. As we enter the final months of the Universal 6 Year of 2013, it must be remembered that responsibility and service to others, in actions that benefit the greater good, are essential components of our existence.
Be certain that you, the individual, do your part to create a better world for everyone (and yourself). I wish everyone the very best in all your endeavors.
Blessings of Love & Light

Numerology in Education – Can It Be Beneficial?
One of very first things I recognized when I was initially introduced to Numerology in 1984, was the powerful accuracy of this ancient esoteric science. I was deeply impressed by the depth and insights that could be provided by an accurate numerological profile. As I pursued my study and use of this modality, I came to realize that this relatively unknown science could be of great benefit in many facets of everyday life. Whether being used for greater self-understanding, greater understanding of those in our lives, or better understanding of our inter-personal relationships, Numerology has something to offer in a simple and easy-to- understand fashion. Something that can go a long way towards helping people in their everyday lives. More importantly (and this is something I have been advocating for many years), Numerology could become a powerful tool in the educational system.
I have been incredibly fortunate to have worked with thousands of clients throughout the years and it is gratifying to watch someone gain the understanding and acceptance of themselves through the use of Numerology. One of the goals of my work has always been to assist in an individual's growth. Numerology can pinpoint talents, abilities, strengths, weaknesses, lessons and challenges and it is the combination of these facets that collectively creates the understanding, acceptance, and ultimately, the taking of responsibility by the individual. One of the other goals of my work is to introduce Numerology into the mainstream in such a way that it does not lose its integrity. In the world of education, this could be invaluable. Imagine if the schools to which we send our children, were also able to pinpoint these attributes in the students and then work accordingly to better understand, and by extension, educate them more effectively.
I have always found it ironic that schools embrace the teachings of Pythagoras (generally considered to be the 'father of Numerology') through mathematics (who doesn't remember learning the Pythagorean theory in geometry?), music and in many ways, the structure of school, yet they totally discount his work with numbers in the form of Numerology. And, in my opinion, they are missing out on a golden opportunity to better understand and help their students. It is my understanding that the Myers/Briggs test is often used to evaluate students. While that is good in that it provides a personality type and some level of insight into who they are, Numerology, on the other hand, not only provides the type, it can also explain the 'whys' of behavior. And, once one understands the 'why', they can work more effectively in teaching and helping. Throughout the years, I have had numerous occasions in which I was able to inform a parent of the potential of what is considered ADD/ADHD behavior in their child. I have gone so far as to tell them to expect to hear from their child's school that their child has one of these 'conditions'. This statement was always confirmed as having already happened. I can see the ADD behavior in a preponderance of 5 energy in a child. Too much 5 energy will create an extremely curious, restless, and easily bored child. This is a child with a quick mind who picks things up quickly. Considering that a lesson is begun on Monday and finished on Friday, what does one expect of a child who 'gets it' in the first couple of days? The child will begin to drift and look for other things to occupy his mind, and many times this can lead to the child becoming a distraction as he attempts to amuse himself. In my opinion, rather than punishing this child, or labeling him or her and then prescribing medication, might not that child be better served through engaging in a curriculum that satiates his curiosity? Might not that child be better served if attention were paid to his or her particular interests and desires? I feel that all too often, the easy path of medicating and isolating these children is detrimental in a way that needn't be. Through the use of Numerology, this child could be properly identified and treated accordingly. The active and curious child could be provided activities and studies that keep him engaged and interested in his education.
In other instances, I have identified the person who comes out of an alcoholic or addictive family environment (this can be accomplished through the Challenge portion of Numerology). In the case of the addiction scenario, the 7 Challenge is the indicator of not only coming from that home life, it can also be a strong indicator of the possibility of that child falling into addictive behavior. It is rare that the child of an alcoholic begins to act up until they reach their teen years, at which point it might be difficult to overcome the behavioral issues. Just imagine if little Johnny could be identified as having an extremely high probability of coming from the addictive home. Efforts could then be taken immediately upon his entering the educational system to circumvent and overcome the impending behavior. Other conditions that can be identified through the Challenge numbers are: trouble with authority (1); impatience and lack of tolerance or sensitivity to others (2); issues of self-expression or self-esteem (3); control issues and the possibility of a physical reaction towards others (4); sexual abuse/molestation or a tendency towards overindulging in pleasures of the senses (5); coming from a broken home or a home in which other forms of abuse take place, e.g. verbal, physical, emotional, etc (6); or, a home in which anger and rage are a strong part of they dynamic (8). With recognition of these conditions as soon as possible, then educators and school counselors (as well as parents) could more effectively work with students with the goal being one of the ability to assist in overcoming these conditions in a way that creates long-term benefits to the child.
There are other portions of a numerological profile that can also assist in the realm of teaching a child. Strong talents and abilities can be emphasized and encouraged. Weaknesses in areas of characteristics and personality could be strengthened because focus could be placed upon these particular areas with the goal of improvement. The creative child could be encouraged to use their creativity. The curious child could be encouraged to use his curiosity in a positive manner. The deep-thinker could be encouraged to use his intellect to further his education in different facets of their schooling. The bully could be taught to be compassionate, tolerant and sensitive to others. The aggressive child could be taught to channel that aggressiveness into something positive such as athletics. The list of potential positives that can be gained is extensive and the benefits to the child and to society as a whole, are numerous.
I realize that our current educational system has many problems, none of which can be easily solved. Yet, if molding young children into productive and active members of society is an ultimate goal, then anything that can assist in that pursuit should be given consideration. I strongly advocate for Numerology to be given a long and detailed look as a one way to accomplish those goals. If you doubt the veracity of my claim, I encourage you to see for yourself, either through a private session with me, or by scheduling me to come speak to your group or organization about Numerology. The proof is in the demonstration!
You know your name(s)...look up your numbers!
Let your numbers be your guide.

OCTOBER 2013- A UNIVERSAL 7 MONTH
With the 7 vibration being the over-riding energy of October, this will be a month in which reflections on self and life play a big part in what happens. October is a single-digit 7 month which indicates that the pure energy of the 7 will be strongly in force. This is a time during which people, and the world, should take a deep breath and slow down a bit. Collectively, we should all be taking a step back to reflect on what has happened and what can happen, while analyzing that which has, and is taking place. October can be a month in which work is undertaken that will improve and perfect plans already in force. Using mental processes and discipline, we will be able to move forward in a more thoughtful and insightful way. The areas of self-improvement, nature, conservation, science, inventions, learning, religions and the spiritual journey are all areas that may be highlighted during the month. Many will receive inspiration through their dreams, visions and the use of intuition. With its emphasis on the inner-self this can be a time during which people can become more receptive and in-tune with their surroundings and their lives while taking steps to improve the conditions of their lives (and by extension, the lives of the greater collective). The 7 is also a representation of a greater mental and emotional energy being in play. This could result in a greater tendency to giving increased thought and feeling into decisions that impact the greatest number of people. Greater emphasis and thought may also be exercised in the realms of nature and conservation. It is possible that the topic of climate change will be moved a bit more into the limelight as people become increasingly aware of the ongoing changes and the adverse effect they are having on the lives of so many people.
In the world of money and finance, October is a month that calls for some restraint with finances although conditions will continue to move towards an overall improvement and a trend towards greater prosperity and financial stability. Businesses may also find they have a greater liquidity factor that can help with the overall improvement (especially if money is put back into business as opposed to being used to benefit business owners). The 7 energy is a good time for studying, planning, researching and inventing and October can be a fertile ground for the sprouting of new ideas and thought patterns that again, work towards improving the greater good.
On the seventh day, god rested, and so it is during a period of 7 energy. This is a time for resting and paying attention to issues surrounding health and well-being. Caution needs to be exercised in the world of health and healthcare as some new, and previously unknown malady may be found moving to center stage. This condition may be discovered as a result of increased research and analysis of existing data. Conditions are quite supportive of research and analysis playing a big part in increasing knowledge of things of a scientific and medical nature. Because of the 'rest aspect' of the 7, October would be a good time for the world to take a collective deep breath while simultaneously working towards finding solutions to existing conditions and problems.
On the negative side of the 7 month, we may see an increase in the lack of co-operation between opposing sides in many different facets of politics, government and ideologies. Because of the secretive and deceptive side of the 7, instances of fraud, irresponsibility, and lying may be displayed and/or uncovered. Caution is to be taken in all affairs as there may be hidden details that are brought into play. People must also be on the look-out for mischief making and interference in the affairs of others. It is incumbent upon all to not take things at face value but instead to actively question leaders and people in power about their motivations and reasons for doing things.
The important part of the 7 month is that everyone takes the time to rest and reflect on their lives and their part as a piece of the greater collective. Study, research, analyze and consider your feelings and thoughts on all things and take whatever steps you, as an individual, can take to make improvements in your own, personal world and by extension, the entire world. For what one does affects everyone. Within the context of the current 6 Universal Year, greater responsibility must be taken to insure that the greater good is considered in all activities and actions. Beneficial service to others and the planet is essential in creating a world that provides for everyone.

SEPTEMBER 2013 – A UNIVERSAL 15/6
With its emphasis on home, family and service to others, the 15/6 Universal Month energy of September can be a month in which these concepts receive greater attention on both a personal and global level. This is a month during which people may be required to show a greater degree of responsibility in their homes, jobs, communities and their relationships with one another. The 6 energy of the month may bring about continuing improvements in issues around the economy and finances and there may be a greater emphasis on materialism. Money may flow more easily than it has and we may see general improvements in various facets of life. This is a time for problem solving and creating greater balance, especially in issues around home, family, health and education. An increased emphasis on domestic and community matters can bring about a greater focus on local and national levels surrounding issues that affect the all.
People and institutions may discover that by making radical lifestyle changes, opportunities may abound that result in changes in long-held and accepted views. New ideas and concepts can create an easing of tensions as well as a dissipation of old fears. With that in mind, it is important that individuals look beyond the surface of things to better comprehend that which they are observing. A level of discernment will go a long way in providing deep understandings that can take root while providing a deeper, inner knowing.
Because the negative side of the 15/6 energy can bring about a rise in dishonesty, fraud and irresponsibility it is incumbent upon people to pay attention to, and focus on those areas in which these conditions are prevalent. September is a great time for a raising of the community and the national conscience that can result in a greater compassion and tolerance in areas of upset or discord. Demanding the truth from those who serve us can create a better understanding and balance in areas of government and business, especially in those areas that directly affect home and family life. Maintaining order in all systems and fixing those things that are in need of adjustment or overhaul, will also add to the general welfare and common good of the people. Particular attention may be needed in the fields of medicine and health. Another topic that could demand greater attention and concern is the issues surrounding our food and food supply. It is possible that the continuing debate over GMOs and the control of our food sources by a handful of large corporations will move further onto center stage. In any area of concern experienced by the individual, it would be advantageous to add your voice to the dialogue. Individually we may be drowned out...collectively we possess great power in asking for greater transparency and consideration of our desires. People must learn to channel their emotions on these subjects into actionable behavior, especially in holding our leaders to their position(s) as our voices in the process.
Since 2013 is a Universal 6 Year, the 15/6 energy of the Universal 6 Month is reinforced and amplified and conditions are primed for a greater sense of service to others. We must all keep in mind the bigger picture of a global community and work towards the improvement of conditions for all, wherever one may live. Get out there and make your contribution.
Blessings of Love and Light!
