Your Year 2010

What Will 2010 Bring You?


I believe that at our Soul level we consciously select our name, our time and place of birth, and our birth/adoptive families. We also choose our life challenges and their “soulutions.” The purpose of these choices is to allow us to combine our physical Self with our soul Self enabling us to remember our own oneness. ( Articles, “Our Abandonment Issues Are The Catalysts . . . .”) 



As practiced in the West, Numerology is based on a system developed by the Greek mathematician Pythagoras. Numerology is the science of interpreting the patterns of numbers and letters as they interact with other frequencies, each other, and our realities. Numbers are the building blocks of potential and creation.



Cosmic Numerology, a branch I’ve added to the tree of Numerology, is a melding of the sciences of Numerology and Quantum Physics with the concepts of reincarnation and Gematria. Cosmic Numerology is the study of the patterns and frequencies associated with the numbers and letters that make up our realities. It can identify the behavior patterns of individuals, businesses, or countries. It also identifies the challenges and soulutions associated with those patterns. Whether it’s a name, an illness, disease, address, food, chemical, mineral, color or craving, they all have one thing in common; they symbolize the interrelationships of the energies and events that affect our lives. Numbers and letters represent the codes of creation. Cosmic Numerology views these codes being generated by both conscious and unconscious choices. 



Our name reveals our emotional and psychological behavior patterns as well as our strengths and weaknesses. Our birthday identifies our destiny, life challenges, mental patterns, and the physical opportunities that will enable us to fulfill our life calling. We also choose specific life challenges as well as providing for their “soulutions.” (See, Articles, “abandonment issues as catalysts’...”) None of us would have ever chosen to come here, if we didn’t know beforehand that we have more than enough grace to successfully fulfill our part of the divine plan in this lifetime.



In numerology, your use, misuse, or non-use of the energies of a personal number can influence every aspect of your daily life, including your behaviors at work, in relationships, and with family. Personal numbers can also identify potential experiences, giving us the foreknowledge that allows us to make more proactive life choices and fewer reactive choices. 



In this article, I would like to discuss the vibrations of the personal year (PY). The PY cycle lasts nine years with each preceding year setting the tone for the following year. The PY begins on January 1 and lasts until December 31. 



Throughout each nine year cycle we are given an opportunity to rebirth ourselves and to remember our divinity. Whatever patterns we fail to identify and begin working on as we pass through the cycle, will recur with more intensity in the next nine year cycle. 





Before showing you how to determine your current personal year, let me say something about 2009 which was a Universal 11/2 year (add 2+0+0+9 = 11 1+1 = 2). 



2009 was a Universal 11/2 year (add 2+0+0+9 = 11 (1+1 = 2). The 11 is the first of the master numbers (11 – 99) and can bring disillusionment and emotional frustration. Under the 11, we can “see” what needs to be done but are not given the power or the opportunity to make it happen; this can lead to frustration or withdrawal. Keep this in mind as an undercurrent as you read about your personal year.



This was the second year of the universal nine year cycle that began last year. Regardless of what personal year (PY) we were in, our lives were impacted by others (2). Whether it was forming a new or stronger relationship with Spirit or beginning or ending relationships with others, it was a year for letting go of emotional and sentimental attachments and to speak your truth, in a timely manner, from your heart. 



Economically, 2009 was a disastrous year for many people; homes, livelihoods, businesses, and faith was lost, relationships dissolved, security evaporated. We were told we were in a recession. The first six letters of recession are “recess.” Was the Universe telling us something? To lighten up? To show more gratitude; to our selves, others, and the planet? Not to look to the material world for security? To begin doing what we love, rather than to be loved or to maintain control? Or maybe the message is simply to work together as partners and let go of the “I”, me, mine.” 



Recession transposes into a 44/8 (4+4=8). This presence of the number creates situations that will call for this individual to make a life altering decision without knowing its outcome, alternatives, or consequences. The 44 calls for taking charge of your life and accepting responsibility for your actions/choices; 8 says to stop worrying about finances and use your innate wisdom, knowledge, and expertise to start bringing more abundance into your life. 



2010 (2+0+1+0 = 3)

Melded with the energy of your personal year, the 3 energy of 2010 (a universal 3 year) can enhance: optimism, charisma, focus, personal and social interactions, communications, and creative expression. Negatively, the 3 can be:, emotionally withdrawn, scattered, lack confidence, feel inadequate, cut corners, pompous, unforgiving, creatively co-dependent, or grandiose. 



In 2010, you can begin making your visions a reality by focusing your energy on something specific. You can develop the courage to speak your truth from your heart. You can take advantage of opportunities that will assist you in overcoming feelings of inadequacy. You can be more optimistic. The energy of a negative 3 would indicate unclear communications and/or difficulty with social interactions at all levels. (Refer to ARTICLES, An Interpretation of The Numbers 1 – 9 and 0) 







* * * * * * *



Every number has a challenge and “soulution.” Regardless of what personal year an individual, business, or country is experiencing, the yearly solution for everyone on the planet is universally the same. This year the universal solution is 6. A positive 6 calls for being more discerning in the amount of responsibility taken on, being more compassionate with yourself, and letting go of unrealistic expectations of yourself and others. 





How to Determine Your Personal Year (PY) for 2010

The PY is found by adding your month and day of birth together (called the Achievement Number) then reducing the sum to a single digit. Add that digit to the current year, which has also been reduced to a single digit. For example, 12/11 (December 11)) added together equals 23. Add 2+3 for a total of 5. Then add the digits of 2010 (2+0+1+0 = 3). Next add both totals (your Achievement Number) 5 to the 3 (universal year) = 8 (personal year.) For this birthday, 2010 is an 8 personal year.



To use the following chart, read down vertically from the achievement number, to the personal year, to the universal challenge. For example, if your achievement number is 2, you are in a 5 personal year with a 6 universal challenge. 



The reason 6 is a universal solution is because regardless of the personal challenge associated with this year, the universal solution for everyone is to become a more positive 6 (i.e., Let go of unrealistic expectations of yourself or others, don’t be a martyr, be more compassionate with yourself, and try to be of service (to family, friends, community, or at work because it gives you joy, not because you feel guilty, obligated, or have abandonment issues.) 



The anomaly of a universal solution applying to each year of the nine year cycle is Spirit’s way of honoring our free will while offering us a solution for enhancing universal harmony. (Mathematically, it has been proven that if 15% of a group changes their base patterns, it is enough of a change to influence the other 85% to begin making changes.)








Interpretations for Personal Years



A "One" Year New beginnings. 

Your own masculine energy (assertive behavior) is required to initiate your plans. This year sets the tone for the remainder of the 8 years of this cycle. You will begin to feel this energy by late October of the preceding year. It is an ideal year for starting new projects. Do not expect to start a new personal relationship as all of your energy should be directed toward birthing the project(s) decided upon in your 7 PY (2007). If you are in a relationship, tell your partner that you need to make your Self your first priority and will give them as much of your energy as you can. 



On the first new moon of the year (or in December) “marry” your Self, thus making your self your first priority. Buy a small piece of jewelry, a crystal, or other object and give it to your Self as a wedding gift. 



Some of your challenges this year involve letting go of the need for control, not being stubborn because of insecurities, not getting lost in minutiae or details, not being afraid to move forward with your dreams/ideas/visions. Recognize that you can not control anything, you can only state your “intentions and preferences” and continue moving forward.



A "Two" Year Cooperation. 

Your own feminine energy (intuition /cooperation) is required for seeking, accepting, or offering help. This is a year when the ego should be put on a shelf. This is a year for beginning or ending relationships (social, romantic, business or with Self). You will meet many people that will help you along your path. Since 2 is also the number for partnerships, this is a great year to strengthen your relationship with Spirit by learning to trust that everything is divinely timed. Don’t forget to “ask” the universe for what you desire.



The challenges for this year include: paying attention to the details not just the concept, not scattering your energy or dissipating your time by becoming overly involved in the affairs of others. 





A "Three" Year Social Activity and Creativity. This is an ideal time to renew old friendships and form new ones. It is a year of creativity, manifestation, and for expressing your Self socially and/or through art, music, writing, or speaking. Have fun! Bring joy into people's lives. It is a time when the ideas and plans implemented in the 1 PY come to fruition. This is the best year, other than a 1 PY, to birth new ideas and projects. 



Your challenge is to not allow perfectionist tendencies or unrealistic expectation of yourself or others to interfere with creating and manifesting that which you desire. Don’t over commit yourself to assisting others as a distraction for avoiding the need to focus on your creations. (Feelings of inadequacy could lead you down this path.) 



A "Four" Year Focus on work. Be practical. 

You may feel "boxed-in" or "put-upon" or a sense of limitation. The 4 represents the foundation. It is time to concentrate on work and to pay attention to the details. Don’t procrastinate. You cannot depend on others for help, they will not do the job to your satisfaction and it will take more time to educate them than it would to do the job yourself. Put off taking a vacation until mid-August.



The major challenges are not to try to complete or initiate anything by yourself – ask for help either from others or from Spirit; being more patient (rarely does a project take full form overnight); balancing your intuition and logic (Use your intuition to “come up” with an idea, use your logic to develop it, and then intuitively test its practicality.) Other challenges involve impatience, being overly analytical, controlling, and anxieties over being embarrassed, humiliated, or being judged by others to be less intelligent/successful. . . .



A "Five" Year A year of change and a second chance for a new beginning. You are halfway through your nine year cycle. This is a year of freedom and change. Opportunities for new beginnings will present themselves. You can change your job, indulge the physical senses (within moderation), enjoy a flirtation, or late in the fourth quarter begin a relationship. Personal freedom will be at its peak, take advantage of it. Travel will be high on your agenda this year, whether taking many short trips or a long journey.



The challenges are not to become angry or frustrated when things don’t go according to your plans. Try to avoid being too flexible or too rigid, in your dealing with others. Don’t worry about money or finances. Watch out for confrontations with others, especially authority figures. Don’t be afraid to “step into your power” to facilitate changes.



A "Six" Year A year of service and responsibility. Like a 2 PY, it is also an excellent year for beginning or ending personal relationships or strengthening your relationship with Spirit. Beginning this year and lasting through the 9 PY, learn to put the needs of other's ahead of your own. It is also a good time to deal with real estate in any form --- buying, selling, renting out a property or fixing one up. Be charitable, tolerant, and forgiving. Emit love . . . do not go to bed angry. 



The challenges are being afraid to release emotional attachments, whether they are to people, possessions, or a job. Don’t’ over commit yourself because of feelings of guilt or a sense of obligation. If an opportunity arises in another location, don’t be afraid to leave loved ones. This is a year of service, not martyrdom, be more discerning about who, where, or for how long you are willing to be of assistance. Above all, do not become involved with others as an excuse to not be responsible for and to your Self. 



A "Seven" Year A year of self-analysis as well as learning to surrender. What is decided upon now and developed throughout the 8 PY and 9 PY, determines your spiritual direction and your level of conscious satisfaction during the next nine year cycle. The 7 PY is the time Spirit gives you to figure out who you are and where you are going. By September 25th of the 7 PY, you must decide where you want to go, what you want to be, and how you are going to get there. (You can modify your decisions during the fourth quarter, but for now it is imperative that you place your order with the Universe verbally or in writing.) These decisions will begin being activated in your 1 PY. 



Business and financial opportunities will present themselves this year, but for them to materialize you will have to learn how to allow them to unfold and not “try” to make them happen. TRUST that everything is unfolding according to a divine plan that you helped create.



Challenges for the year mainly revolve around a need to do everything your way. This can be a control issue associated with abandonment issues i.e., “I can not trust anyone, even Spirit, to be reliable, trustworthy, or supportive.” The other side of the challenge coin reveals a tendency to believe you are not worthy of help. You may feel lonely at times, this feeling can cause you to go out and do something stupid. THIS IS A YEAR OF PERSONAL REFLECTION, you are to spend your spare time alone, contemplating your life and life direction. Try to spend time near water (streams, ponds, rivers, lakes, oceans, even a fountain) it will help calm you down and focus.



The major challenge for the year is to learn to trust in the universe and realize that you can control nothing. This realization can lead to becoming more patient and trusting of Spirit. 



An "Eight" Year A year of financial gain, or karmic paybacks. Using the lessons of faith, patience, trust, and surrender learned in your 7PY, this can be a financially successful year. This is a good year to implement business plans, receive a promotion or recognition, make money, or become more self-empowered. This is also a year for dealing with organizations or institutions, contracts, legal proceedings, and the law. (Watch the speed limits on the highways.)



If you cooperated in your 2 PY, kept you nose to the grindstone in the 4 PY, and were of service in your 6 PY, then you will be rewarded either materially or financially (or both) this year; if not, this will be a very difficult year . . . one of financial hardships or karmic paybacks. 



The challenges are to avoid co-dependency or non-cooperation, not trusting your intuition, difficulty letting go of emotional or sentimental attachments, poor communication of your feelings or ideas, and ignoring your relationship with Spirit. Let go of fear and indecisiveness, be BOLD. 



A " Nine" Year

This is a year of endings and letting go. A time to travel, especially long distances. This year is the "final exam"; all that you have learned throughout the current cycle you will be called upon to use this year. Start nothing new that you wish to continue, this is the end of the cycle. If you feel driven to begin something or make a purchase, wait until October to begin, as this is when the energy of the 1PY begins filtering in. This is an excellent year to end negative associations or dealings with your “spiritual trainers.” (Read ARTICLES “Our Abandonment Issues Are The Catalysts . . . .) Minimize the ego's reactions to losses and emotional disappointments by realizing that you are preparing your Self for new beginnings in your 1 PY and next nine year cycle. 



The challenges are don’t let feelings of inadequacy or unforgiveness make you do things to be loved or to maintain control, to accept who you are and love your Self, to not scatter your energy and time doing for others, and to watch your sarcasm. Don’t close down be more emotionally intimate by having the courage to speak your truth from your heart. 



It is very important this year to recognize when you are interacting with a spiritual trainer – someone that is pushing your buttons. (ARTICLES: “Our Abandonment Issues Are The Catalyst . . . .”) By recognizing them, you have the opportunity to opt out of your previous behavior patterns of doing to be loved or to maintain control and either begin or continue doing what you love.
