6 PERSONAL YEAR
8 Personal Month
Despite the fact that you might be hankering to slow down and breathe right about now, November won’t be cooperating with you in your desire for downtime. Lucky you—you get two number 8 months this year! Don’t you feel special? :-/ February was your first number 8 Month this year, so think back to how that felt. Are there going to be similar issues playing out this month?
November is a clarifying “push” month where you’ll feel energized to move forward with power and persuasion.
November is a clarifying “push” month where you’ll feel energized to move forward with power and persuasion. Thinking “business” and in business-like terms will be greatly beneficial as you ready yourself for action and achievement. There’s a good deal of business to take care of this month. Some of it may relate to your ongoing enterprises, and yet the bulk of it centers around . . . you guessed it—family matters.
This might be an opportune time to watch the movies Home For The Holiday (directed by Jodie Foster, starring Holly Hunter and Robert Downy, Jr.) or Four Christmases with Reese Witherspoon and Vince Vaughn. These films might hit home for you (pardon the pun) because they’re an almost over-the-top and yet realistic look at family dynamics, especially the dynamics that come to the surface during the holidays. And since this is a “home and family” focused year for you, I can only imagine that you’ll have some heightened issues coming into play during the season that might make Home For The Holidays and Four Christmases look like a mild romp.
November offers the opportunity to take control of your life in a profound way that you haven’t before. You might also take another gander at the classic book Codependent No More to really gain insight into your family history and the way in which your upbringing has hard-wired much of the ways in which you engage and interact in the world, not to mention how you create your current family and home life. Even though I seem to be giving you a pile of homework for the month (watching movies and reading books), the focus is truly on personal empowerment and your financial health.

On the down-and-dirty practical end of things, take care of any contracts or agreements related to your home on or about November 5th. Iron out any tax or insurance affairs needing attention during the week of November 9th. A family member also may need assistance on some private legal or financial matter, probably around November 18th.
On the more subliminal end of things, this is the time to consolidate long range plans for your future. The 6 energy of your year has been highly creative. Hopefully you’ve allowed yourself to tap into whatever creative urges you’ve had this year—whether it’s been in building a new business or taking on an interior decorating project.
The energy of the number 8 energy works by knowing what it already has to work with and then expanding the value of it.
Understand this about November—it’s an 8 energy coming in for you this month. This energy works by knowing what it already has to work with and then expanding the value of it. Does that make sense? This isn’t the month for innovation, per se. Rather, it’s the time where you can begin to amplify the success of what you’ve already put into place. Even if you don’t have a dime—so to speak—the combination of this month’s energies supports you to make things happen, create something from what you thought was nothing, or take something you already have and increase its worth. This will be a busy month and the caveat is that you may frequently find yourself in conflict—between your heightened responsibilities at home and the attention you know you need to give to your work or business.
Understand that there may be urgent matters affecting other members of your family or close relatives. Know that your sense of balanced responsibility is still being tested and November won’t offer a respite on the home and family front. Yet your lesson here is a great one if you can see it in this light: Are you an enabler? And if you are—as Dr. Phil would say—“And how’s that workin’ for ya’?”
You’ve been deciding which relationships stay and which ones either get thrown out (good riddance to bad rubbish) or gently get phased out of your life.
This year has been a “marriage and divorce” year for you and that doesn’t just go for your intimate relationship. It’s across the board. You’ve been assessing yourself, your relationship with the present “you” and with the “you” that you want to evolve into. A hugely popular article from The New York Times titled “Why You Will Marry The Wrong Person” might speak to some of the core issues you’re working with during this 6 Personal Year. You’ve been deciding which relationships stay and which ones either get thrown out (good riddance to bad rubbish) or gently get phased out of your life. The upcoming year promises to be an introspective year that’s ripe for integrating some of the lessons and changes you’ve made this year.
