4 PERSONAL YEAR

 

MAY 2017

 

9  Personal Month

 

The month of May offers some finalities and conclusions that may or may not be expected—and certainly may not be under your control. This feels vastly uncomfortable during your 4 Personal Year, because you’re striving toward laying down the gauntlet. Meaning, it’s the year to work hard, lay some foundations for yourself, and systematize what you can in order to make your life easier and more productive.  Yet often this means that—when we participate in the energy of the 4—that we’re expecting it all to be linear and practical. Dare I say, not so.

 

So now you’re bridging into May, which is a time of surrender and completions—a month guided by the energy of the number 9. May is a time for certain things to fall away.

 

And also understand that numerology offers us a great canvas from which to paint our experience. And you are the artist and you get to choose not only your canvas, but also you get to choose the type of paint, the colors, and the paint brushes. So while I can observe that last month could have been an explosive month for finances and for engaging you in severe tests in the realm of personal empowerment, you could have also experienced feelings of victimization and stagnation.

 

Why? Because the energy related to your 4 Personal Year is pressing you to get real, make a plan and set reachable goals, and generally get the nuts-and-bolts of your life into solid form. So if this is an area of life where you need further development, well then, it can feel like your teacher or parent harping on you to come inside and do your homework when you’d rather being playing outside with your friends. Then the energy related to the 8 you just grinded through in April is all about stepping up or getting stepped on, so you might have been feeling extra pressure in the “how much more of this s*@t can I handle?” realm.

 

This is the way it works across the board. It’s all dependent on what aspects of the energies we’re cultivating at the moment. I take this opportunity as a reminder so that you can enjoy all of it – both the zingy parts and also perhaps extract some zing out of the hard parts, knowing that you’re being offered experiences that allow you to develop these aspects of your life in more elevated ways than you have experienced in the past.

 

So now you’re bridging into May, which is a time of surrender and completions—a month guided by the energy of the number 9. May is a time for certain things to fall away. Yet the impulse will certainly be to reach out and grab for them as they disintegrate, leaving a strange sense of loss, if not emotional angst. Your catch phrase for the month: “Breaking up is hard to do.” An enterprise or a phase of work may conclude during the week of May 6th. In addition, you also may reach a parting of the ways with a colleague or friend between May 9th and 15th. Either or both of these endings are likely to give you a good deal of freedom you hadn’t anticipated could even exist in your world.

 

This can be a trying month for relationships, so some delicacy and heightened sensitivity will go a long way in keeping your romantic attachments on a constructive course.

 

Believe me when I say that the exit of these people or projects will remove a good deal of restriction you’ve been feeling for quite some time now. Just remember that as you work through the process it’ll take time to regroup and move forward. In other words, you won’t immediately feel the relief—most likely the panic will ensue first. Panic, then relief.

 

Take command while releasing expectations of solid plans and outcomes. You’ll need to rely on a strong sense of flexibility, which will feel even more difficult than usual in 2017.

 

When I was taking a hike the other day I overheard this part of a conversation: “Well, it’s just a really inconvenient time for a crisis right now.” And I thought: When is it ever a convenient time for a crisis? Isn’t that the nature of a crisis?  Do you ever get in your car one day and think: “This is the perfect day for my car to break down.” No. I don’t think so! So I know it feels mighty inconvenient that you must face high levels of emotional intensity right now, especially when what you’re really wanting is a slow and steady, predictable, and manageable approach to virtually everything this year. Isn’t it enough that you’re in nose-to-the-grindstone mode? And now, emotions, too? Calgon, take me away!  It’s going to test your reserve to keep matters on an even keel, particularly between May 18th and the end of the month. It’ll feel like you’re on the Star Wars set and it’s coming at you from all sides. Brace yourself!

 

Take command while releasing expectations of solid plans and outcomes. You’ll need to rely on a strong sense of flexibility, which will feel even more difficult than usual in 2017. Often it’s best to simply show by example how to communicate and how you prefer to be communicated with, rather than lecture someone about how they’re not being clear. If a misunderstanding occurs, it’s up to you to make the effort to clear the communication gap on both sides. It might be time to re-read Miguel Ruiz’s The Four Agreements—don’t make assumptions. Instead, make every effort to keep your important enterprises moving ahead despite all this distracting activity. This can be a trying month for relationships, so some delicacy and heightened sensitivity will go a long way in keeping your romantic attachments on a constructive course.
