5 PERSONAL YEAR
7 Personal Month
I hate to be the one to break it to you, yet I’m betting you’ll feel at odds with yourself much of the month of February. Even though it’s a year that’s turbo-charged with excitement, in February you’ll want to spend some time alone. Even if you don’t really realize it, you’ll need to be by yourself or at least have a little added “unplugged” time to assimilate the important changes from last month and to consider the best ways to implement them and bring them into play.
Answers and ideas will manifest through slow contemplation. You need time to process feelings and information right now.
It’s also a good idea to assess some other possible shifts and figure out the best ways to put them into action. This won’t be like a light bulb moment. Answers and ideas will manifest through slow contemplation. You need time to process feelings and information right now. If you’re interested in spiritual matters, part of this month—particularly during the week of February 18th—provide great times to meditate and spend added time studying in whatever way you choose—reading books, attending classes and seminars, taking on-line courses, writing and journaling, or teaching your own courses.
Although you need time for contemplation during part of February, you’re also feeling a strong sense of restlessness and a need to pursue some of the important matters you’re concerned with and get on with the show. Even though you’ll have spurts of wanting to spring into action—if you act impulsively—it’ll be like shooting yourself in the foot. Not quite the desired outcome. Think of February more as a data-collection month. Then you can start determining the most relevant information for your chosen “project,” whatever that may be for you. That can be related to relationships, career—virtually anything that you’re working on in your life.
February is all about preparation. Remember: “Proper preparation prevents poor performance.” Recite that before you go off on a tangent. This is the time to prepare for constructive action that will ramp up and be ready for take off during March. In the meantime, how’s the healthy eating regimen going? Have you been exercising with consistency? February is a great month for getting your healthier routines in place. Remember that old Janis Joplin song? “Freedom’s just another word for nothin’ left to lose. Nothin’ don’t mean nothin’ if it ain’t free.” Since this is your 5 Personal Year and “freedom” is your overall theme, these are thoughts that you’ll be deconstructing and attempting to integrate into your life. Is freedom just another word for nothing left to lose? Or is this just rubbish? You’ll be chewing on some of these thoughts and concepts this month with greater depth than usual.

Understand that while millions of people share your same Personal Year number, what it brings to your life at this given moment is individual and unique to you. It all depends on your focus and what time in your life is facing you right now. Your 5 Personal Year will certainly have a different focus and flavor when you’re 20 years old as opposed to when you’re 50. Both are 5 Personal Years, yet you’ll be dealing with different things. Your best friend can also be in a 5 Personal Year yet theirs plays out much differently than yours. Perhaps their freedom seeking and fearlessness resides in getting a divorce, changing jobs, or feeling stuck and alone while yours is primarily about traveling, moving, or enjoying more financial freedom. There are as many ways to experience the energy of the 5 Personal Year as there are people in the world. Even though the issues being dealt with are unique to you, the underlying themes are constant.
Both the energies of the numbers 5 and 7 are quite “heady” and need healthy outlets for built-up or pent-up energies. So it’s good to remind yourself to head to the gym, to the yoga mat, meditation pillow, tea with friends, or any other healthy way to process all the experiences and emotions that are coming into play already this year. Time spent near water or out in nature in any way, shape or form will feel particularly clarifying right now. Enjoy some self-directed time of your choice this month.
