9 Personal Year | July is a 7 Personal Month

🧭 Directive for July: This is the month to go inward and allow time for things to settle in. Rewards are just around the corner.


This is a month where you’re going through a deep process of dissolution. This is the year that’s inviting you—oh, let’s be honest, it’s forcing you—to move on to an even more expansive cycle in your life — and this means you must let go and allow what’s no longer serving you to fall away.

And this “falling away” often feeling like you’re base-jumping without any kind of a safety net.  For realz.

Interestingly, in your 9 Personal Year, you only get one month out of twelve that brings you this particular type of contemplative, spiritually probing energy of the number 7, so make it count!


Even though it may feel exasperating, July is marked as a sabbatical or retreat month for you. This is a perfect time to begin to make plans for starting new projects or experiences for the beginning of next year.

Yet you must move gently with yourself here, because frankly, nothing in your life is massively clear or super-defined right now.

In fact, the frustration you most likely feel with hovering around in Limbo Land could very well be getting to you.

This can be a month where decisions are finally made—or things “happen to you” that change your game in a substantial way. If you’ve been tiptoeing around a relationship split, a job shift, a decision about a geographical move—or any other life-changing transition, this could very well be the time when certain things shake out.

You’ll want to allow a good deal of “soul searching” time this month, particularly between July 9th and 18th. This may not be exactly what you want to hear right about now, yet . . . there it is.


July is the time for closing out those situations and relationships that need to fall away.

Allow yourself to lean into it and move through it on or about July 11th or 27th.

Realize that you really don’t have to rationalize your choices or justify your actions. It would be great to dig into your feelings and be as clear as you possibly can, and yet know that those on the receiving end more than likely won’t understand what you’re going through and how significant it is to you personally.

Again, remind yourself that even though you can’t clearly see what’s ahead of you, you’re moving into a new and ultimately exciting new cycle in your life. Really!  **Pinky-promise…

Know that the letting go you do in July will bring about inner peace—after it all comes out in the wash, so to speak—and what’s to follow will take shape in perfect timing. Yet it often only comes together and can be seen for what it is a bit after the fact.


July offers some moments that are designed to move you through some necessary and inevitable twists and turns. It’s as though you’re waiting for the train and it doesn’t arrive to your platform for another five hours. It’s like that.

Think of this entire year as a commencement ceremony. You’re graduating and completing this course of study and also beginning a brand new life after you walk across that stage and get the diploma — in your metaphoric case, at the end of the year.

So you’re prepping, finishing your classwork, spending time with friends who will all be dispersing into their different lives (with some exceptions, of course!), and putting out your feelers for “what’s next?”  Again, I’m using this as a metaphor, yet it’s fitting and offers you some great context for the collision of emotions and feelings you might experience throughout the year.

So enjoy and savor all your experiences this year. It will be one for the yearbook. The emphasis this month is on deep internal shifts that are bringing you into alignment with your next steps.
