8 PERSONAL YEAR
1 Personal Month
It’s your time to break out of the starting gate. Finally! Time for some lift-off for your business and career-related ventures. The enterprises you’ve been assessing, exploring, lining up and getting into the chute for the last few months are primed and ready. Last month gave you some much-needed time to recalibrate and ready yourself to walk over the bridge from your planning and knowledge gathering 7 Personal Year (last year, 2017) into this highly charged energy of the 8 Personal Year. Some new opportunities ripe with potential may come to your attention sometime around February 7th—as if what you’ve got on your plate isn’t already enough. Remember to wear your “practical and business-like gear” because February marks the genesis of an extremely productive time. You’ll be able to achieve some of your major goals by following through on this month’s activities. That means you have to focus on what you truly want and follow through with action, not wishful thinking or Scarlet O’Hara’s refrain: I’ll think about it tomorrow. Nope. The time is now. You may need to ready yourself for some recognition and a raise in status along with—surprise (drum roll please)—financial rewards. (Happy fist pump!)
The enterprises you’ve been assessing, exploring, lining up and getting into the chute for the last few months are primed and ready.
Know that this is your time to take the initiative. Organize and reorganize. Manage and delegate. Tap into your sense of abundance and shelf the voice of scarcity. On or about February 12th or 18th, you’ll need to work with cutting to the chase on some of your projects so that you can surge toward the finish line. Expect obstacles—yet adjust any existing conditions standing in your way during the week of February 21st.
Also understand that you might need to take care of legal or financial matters regarding your home. So don’t put them off—get ’er done. Remember to take some stress-relieving breaks now and again. You’ll be over-focused on work, so make sure you step back and make time for your loved ones and for some relaxing or lighter activities. You don’t need to accelerate at full throttle in order to get it all accomplished—you’re playing a long game, so pace yourself and think big picture—all the pieces, and all the players on your “team” of life.

Given that February is supported by the energy of the number 1, this is a particularly fertile time for putting your creative ideas into action. This can be a red-letter month for you when you are in your game. Take the lead. Dare to step into your individuality and keep developing a healthy sense of independence as you expand into the year. This is an empowering year and yet—as a friend of mine would say—it’s not for weenie roasts! This is the time to stand up and be counted—to claim your space. This can be across the board and the intensity will depend on where you are in your personal world. If you feel you’re at an all-time low, this year will weigh on you so heavily that there is (as the saying goes) nowhere to go but up! And if you’re mostly in your game and yet there are certain things you’d like to improve, then you’ll get amplified opportunities to shake it up.

Are you wanting to take your business to the next level and yet still have that inner voice (if not your dwindling checking account) hissing in your ear: “This will never work. Who do you think you are? Just go get a regular job. Suck it up.” If this is the case, it’s your year to conquer the dragon, yet it won’t approach you like a puppy at the Humane Society. It will approach you like, well, like a Dragon. It will blow smoke and fire at you, rumble around and make loud noises. It’s your job to face it, managed it, and take control of it. That’s what happens in your 8 Personal Year. It’s like cosmic boot camp. It’s training you, testing you, and handing out a big dose of tough love in hopes that you’ll step into yourself and claim your power.
Do you want to improve your intimate relationship? This will then be an intense focus. Perhaps you decide on a separation. Or therapy. Or perhaps you finally have that talk and agree on marriage. Yet again, this won’t be a little frolic. This will make you dig down to your core and make some leaps that you’ve been avoiding for a while now. Have you had enough and yet have stayed because of (lack of) money? Or perhaps you keep thinking this isn’t so bad, even though you’re depressed and keep getting sick. Or maybe it’s time that you seek out the help, therapy, rehab, or healing your partner says they need you to commit to or else they will leave you. This is just one example of how the hard questions and hard conversations will rise to the surface this year and they won’t be placated with silence, inaction, or avoidance anymore.
Whatever aspect of your life needing attention and a healthy shot of personal power, that’s what will be the focal point of your 8 Personal Year.
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 8 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 8 Personal Years, yet you’ll be dealing with different things. Your best friend can also be in an 8 Personal Year yet theirs plays out much differently than yours. Perhaps their personal empowerment and financial health resides in enrolling in grad school, getting a better job (or any job), or moving out of their parents’ basement while yours is primarily about selling your company, deciding on a new business partnership, or getting therapy for a long-standing issue you have with your father. There are as many ways to experience the energy of the 8 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.
Whatever aspect of your life needing attention and a healthy shot of personal power, that’s what will be the focal point of your 8 Personal Year. And don’t get me wrong. This is a year of magnificence—where you can manifest your desires often beyond your wildest dreams. How committed are you to your own success and your own true happiness? This year has you answering this question and the month of February can set the tone for how what you focus you attention on and how you actively engage in making it happen.
