Life is cyclical. This is something we all know. We all live under the rhythms and cycles of the seasons, our bodies are affected by our circadian rhythms, and the earth’s three main cycles (the Earth’s daily revolution, the moon’s monthly orbit around the Earth and the Earth’s yearly journey around the sun.) to just name a few. We also live under a universal cycle of personal years which recycle every 9 years.
These cycles are not some haphazard random event in our lives, but more a carefully planned progression of experiences which are a creative force to help mold and shape our growth. It is of these cycles that I want to specifically talk about the month of September and what role it plays in the personal years of 1-9.
What is unique about September is that it directly reflects each individual’s current personal year cycle. So for example, I am currently in a personal year of a 4 which means September for me is a 4 personal month. To calculate your personal year cycle, add your month and day of birth to the year of your last celebrated birthday and reduce it to a single digit. Example if your last celebrated birthday was 8-22-2011 you would be in a personal year cycle of a 7. (8+2+2+2+0+1+1=16, 1+6=7). To calculate a personal month you take your personal year number and add it to the corresponding month number. So for a birthday of 8-22-2011 you would add 7+9 (as September is the 9th month)=16, 1+6=7 for you September would be 7 personal month in a 7 personal year.
What this means is that for all of us September brings to a head all that we have been experiencing and learning during the current year. For all of us this will mean a double dose of energy, which for some will mean a double dose of goodness, and for others a double dose of stress if not recognized. However you perceive it, it will be intense. I believe that knowledge is power so I will break down what you can expect for each of the 1-9 year cycles in the month of September.
If you are in a 1 Personal Year, September is a 1 Personal Month for you:
A 1 personal year is a year of adjustment from the endings of your last 9 year cycle and a combination of action and fresh starts as you start of a brand new 9 year cycle. It is all about action. It is important that you make your own decisions this year and you must think of your needs before others because the decisions you make now will influence your life for the years to come. Be open to try new things because your pioneering spirit this year can help you accomplish whatever you set out to do. It is a powerful year for personal growth.
During the month of September you exert your independence and can experience new areas of responsibility in any facet of your life from career to home. This will be a busy month and it can bring with it a significant change, promotion or travel. It is important to understand that in this month you must take it all calmly and avoid being reckless and full of ego. This would be a great month to start something positive in your life regarding health such as quitting smoking, starting an exercise routine.
If you are in a 2 Personal Year, September is a 2 Personal Month for you:
A 2 personal year is a year to embrace calmness. Spiritual development is the primary focus this year as well as a year in which you nurture your relationships. It requires you to be patient and cooperative. You will find yourself watching and waiting as things seem to slow way down. Consider this an incubation period for the plans you put into motion last year. You will find yourself craving peace and harmony and balance. A 2 personal year brings about a heightened intuition and extreme sensitivity so it is important not to personalize things this year. Nurture partnerships and relationships this year that serve your highest and greatest good.
During the month of September in all your experiences you need to trust your heightened intuition and make sure you do not settle for anything less than excellence in your choices for yourself. If you have not embraced the spiritual influences of the year completely you still will have the next few months to do so as they will provide ample opportunity. Many people can experience nervous tension, depression and indecisiveness and lack of direction during this month when they do not trust their inner voice. Your dreams can be extremely insightful and prophetic if you choose to pay attention to them.
If you are in a 3 Personal Year, September is a 3 Personal Month for you:
A 3 personal year serves to expand the mind as it heightens your mental power and the focus is on the further developing of your memory. It also brings with it a big dose of expansive creativity and fertility. Under the energy of this year your thinking and observing skills are attuned and alert. You will meet people and be presented with opportunities to grow and expand your horizons this year. You will find yourself even more expressive this year and willing to speak out. Your physical appearance will take center stage as well. You can blossom but be careful with your eating habits because with this expansive year can also come an expansive waistline.
During September you can feel very scattered and impulsive so it is important to focus on very specific things and limit them to a few. Do not overindulge this month. This cycle is very social so you will find yourself in the middle of various public functions and parties. This month will require you to come to terms with the added responsibility that came from the expanded knowledge you found this year. So it is also very important to lighten up and allow for more humor and happy occasions to be in your life to maintain balance.
If you are in a 4 Personal Year, September is a 4 Personal Month for you:
A 4 personal year is a year of consolidation and formation. It is a year where the emphasis is on work, order, budgeting, and relationships and weeding out what does not serve you and shoring up what does. Physical and material factors dominate. You are building the expanded foundation for the next 5 years. One’s health can become compromised in a 4 year. It is important to know that you must follow the rules this year and work hard. You can find your work load increased bringing with it a level of frustration. It is crucial that you walk the straight and narrow to build that solid foundation for the rest of your cycle.
During the month of September you can find you are all work and no play. It can be a very frustrating month for a lot of people and make them weary which will in turn create stress related illnesses. Even if you do not work in the community and are a stay home parent, your work load will seem to never end. It is very important to make sure you do not become overly ambitious during this month, and that you put more emphasis on responsibility and preparing the way for the changes that will be coming in October and the following year. It is an excellent time to take a restful vacation-even if that means taking a personal day or an afternoon off to just take a nap!
If you are in a 5 Personal Year, September is a 5 Personal Month for you:
A 5 personal year is a year of freedom and all about change. There is usually a whirlwind of activity and experiences as experience and change will be your teacher this year. Some can find their need for freedom to become almost obsessive during this year. It is punctuated by a heightened psychic awareness and personal expression. What this does is it leads us to the development of our talents which helps us release physical and material and social confinement. In the end of this month artistic expression can take over. It is a year where we look back over the last 4 years and decide what we like and don’t like and then we change it. Some people can feel very restless this year and find that travel helps sooth them. Careers often expand and change drastically.
During the month of September you will feel an enhanced level of understanding which will bring with it more confidence. In turn it will inspire you to take more positive action no longer allowing others to determine what is best for you, you will do that yourself. This month can seem to be very hectic as you find yourself multi-tasking more than you thought you could. There will be opportunities to travel this month as well as move to a different home or area. It is important to not get caught up in the fast pace of the month and fall into the cycle of excess of drugs and alcohol. Moderation and embracing the freedom that comes with change is key.
If you are in a 6 Personal Year, September is a 6 Personal Month for you:
The 6 personal year is considered to be a mini-peak during a 9 year cycle. This year is a time for creativity and balance. Love, home, family, justice, beauty all come into focus. Creative projects undertaken this year will have the best chance for success-especially those projects directed toward uplifting mankind. It is also a year to focus on home and family and personal relationships. During this year, family members come and go, children go off to school or leave home or get married, and babies are born. This year it is important to seek balance at the very root of your being which can manifest in your home, relationships, and yourself. A 6 year seeks to restore balance and harmony. It gives you a keen sense of justice so you will most likely find yourself being sought out for advice and financial help from those around you. This year is favorable for personal finances as well. A 6 year is an excellent year for finances.
During September if you are open to progress and change this could be a powerful month of change. Legal affairs can be completed, and job promotions can be had and relationships can be strengthened. Embrace the positive aspects of life and yourself and this month could bring about great success in any area of your life.
If you are in a 7 Personal Year, September is a 7 Personal Month for you:
The 7 personal year is a year of rest and internal focus. It is similar to a 4 personal year as such that you need to analyze and consolidate various aspects of your life. It is a year that you will find yourself wanting to socially retreat and be alone. The very truth of it is you need to be alone with your thoughts, to meditate, to reflect and retreat within yourself. It is a year to set material things aside and take a journey inward to explore the questions such as why we are here and what you believe. It is a year where we learn through personal experiences brought about from the last 7 years of actions. This year you will find yourself in circumstances that allow you more time off from work and your normal routine. A wise path for this year requires you to not make any major changes in finances or your domestic routine. It is also a powerful year for teaching others what you have learned. Being around water would be extremely balancing and soothing for you.
During the month of September you will feel change is in the air! It is important that you take time to rest as this month can bring about stress related health problems. You will finally start to feel lighter and more energetic. It is critical that you listen to your own intuition in making decisions for if you don’t you will continue to learn your lessons of this year through sacrifices. Pay attention to your dreams this month as they are increasingly prophetic and insightful.
If you are in a 8 Personal Year, September is a 8 Personal Month for you:
The 8 personal year is a year of independence, wisdom and manifestation. It is true that we reap what we sew and the year of 8 is exactly that-karma reigns. You will begin to manifest and reap your actions from the last 8 years. You will find out exactly how effective you are in the material world. Many new opportunities manifest under this years vibration. For many they will recognize their heightened spiritual independence and how much emotional control they have achieved. In this year many will find their finances improving significantly as well. The emphasis will be placed on living and not just existing. It is considered a power year and when you choose to embrace the positive aspects of this year, legacies can be made. On the flip side, you can experience material loss, financial hardship and even bankruptcy which would be a clear indicator of the choices you have made during the last 8 years.
During the month of September you could experience financial success with a heightened responsibility leaning you towards your home life. It is a great time to get your financial house in order and keep your ego at bay.
If you are in a 9 Personal Year, September is a 9 Personal Month for you:
This is the peak year of change and disbursement. It is a year that signifies a completion of the last 9 year cycle. They key words for this year are endings, transitions, change, charity and wisdom. Many people find themselves traveling, changing jobs, careers, homes, ending old relationships that they have outgrown. The most important thing to be done this year is to take an internal inventory and accounting of your life and willingly weed out what does not serve your highest and greatest good in all aspects of your life and find ways to let them go to make room for the new opportunities that need to come in. You will have a strong humanitarian sense of responsibility and improved tolerance. You must be open to change and recognize that it is the best way to pave the way for abundance. Out with the old….in with the new.
During September the power of choice will be felt more strongly this month than all year. You will feel like you finally have the courage to make those much needed changes that you haven’t been able to do on your own all year. It can be an extremely emotional month, but do not let that scare you. It is best if you be in control of the letting go of things that don’t serve you this month or most likely you will find that it is taken away for you. In the end, it is always for you highest and greatest good. Just know that this heightened time of completion is almost done and starting next month you will find new opportunities coming your way.
