The secret of change is to focus all your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.~Socrates
September is a 1 Month in your 1 Year (1+9=1+0=1). This double-1 energy increases the intensity and potential of your experience:
You are on a fast-moving and unpredictable road which brings the focus back to you, and those close to you. Your situation has changed more than you may realize, and if you cannot recognize the opportunity in all this, look harder for it – it is there! Be prepared to act on it as soon as the details become clear.
This new experience with independence and innovation is leading to something much better – if not now, then in the near future. Remember that when we are searching for a way out or a way forward, we very often find something entirely different which is more beneficial than we could previously have imagined.
If comfortable and familiar aspects appear to be collapsing around you, they are doing so to make way for the new beginnings you crave. What are you really afraid of? Change? Or the possibility that things will remain the same? It is likely that you are afraid of both these things, and you will need to face these fears head-on. Some physical discomfort may be experienced as you realize how ‘alone’ you are right now, and that only YOU can make the changes you need to make.
Don’t be afraid to take a chance. Remember the mistakes you made in the past when dealing with change, and don’t repeat them now. It would certainly be a mistake to do nothing – or to allow your own or other people’s ignorance or negativity to deter you from acting in your own best interests.
Recognize the potential value of something already existing in your life and treat it as an opportunity to lead yourself in a better direction. Success often requires a giant leap of faith – a radical shift beyond the previously imaginable, which of course, requires courage.
You now have the opportunity to become a leader of some kind. If you have specific goals in mind, you will know what this means, and you will want to take certain steps which will help you to lead your own life. You will know what to do, or at least discover what to do. This does not necessarily mean that you will reach your goals this month or even this year, but information received and decisions made now can help set the foundation for how you will be living in the years to come. This is a month of timely action. Now is the time to act.
An important change must occur to increase your independence and enable forward movement. If an issue of the past reappears, bring it to a conclusion. Understand its importance – or lack of importance – and release yourself from its emotional weight by letting those old feelings out of your body, safely, and privately.
1 is the number of originality, and with the 1 energy at double strength this month, you are likely to realize the extent to which you allow other people’s circumstances, opinions, and ideas to affect you. You are in the process of breaking free so that you can be yourself – as you are now.
The same unsatisfactory conditions will stay with you until you commit to finding a more independent way to proceed. This includes following ideas and desires which originate from you. Making this commitment will take great determination. Not making it will prolong your discontent, your unhappiness, and your fears about the future.
Begin something new or start a new phase of an existing experience. The most important changes have taken place inside you and are creating changes in your day-to-day life. The adversity in the world is real and dangerous, but it is also a reflection of the emotional turmoil that has yet to be released from our bodies. Outer peace comes from peace within.
No matter how wonderful or awful the people around you seem, it is you who have brought them or kept them in your life. They too are a reflection of your inner reality. By accepting others as they are, you can finally be yourself – an original, unique, creative, powerful, and beautiful individual, unlike any other.
Some people fear their individuality. They interpret uniqueness as being alone in the world. They choose to follow the crowd and then become trapped in their own dissatisfaction. You are not alone; you are free – just as long as you are determined to take charge of and be responsible for the quality of your own life, regardless of current circumstances. The events of September will show you that authentic freedom is the home of love, and that love, which has many forms, is what you most need to give and receive right now.
Be patient toward all that is unresolved in your heart. Learn to love the questions themselves. ~Rainer Maria Rilke
September is a 2 Month in your 2 Year (2+9=11=2). This double-2 energy increases the intensity and potential of your experience.
As the 2 energy doubles its intensity this month, your understanding of patience, cooperation, partnership, diplomacy, and intuition is bound to be tested. Do not argue any point too strongly or push yourself to the forefront. Stay calmly in the background wherever possible and look objectively at the conditions and circumstances involved. Notice how various factors are linked. 2 is the number of context and association.
The double 2 energy of September enables you to relate one thing to another and make a variety of insightful connections. Use this expanded awareness to “connect the dots” and provide a larger and more detailed picture. Be patient. Pay great attention to those previously overlooked or misunderstood details.
An adjustment is now taking place in your sense of ‘self importance’, and you may find yourself swinging from one extreme to another before arriving at a realistic balance. At the same time, this year’s circumstances have taught you that your unique life belongs to you. If something does not feel right, there is no reason for you to be involved. Continue to cooperate where you can, but never forget that you have your own life to live and that certain needs and principles cannot be compromised.
Recent activity has exposed both the insensitive and oversensitive responses in yourself and others. With renewed sensitivity and genuine caring, you can now regain your composure and confidence, bring them to new levels, and emerge from this year’s experiences with a new and more peaceful understanding of life, and your place in it. You are learning to be sensitive to reality rather than to those superficial aspects you once believed were real. Now is the time to BE real, and then watch the real way others respond to you.
This emotional year has given you deeper recognition of where you stand. You know only too well that nothing and no one can be taken for granted, and that Love cannot survive in captivity, guilt, blame, or judgment. You have matured a lot, and you no longer have to make a big deal out of petty issues.
Notice how insensitivity can undermine otherwise loving or friendly associations. Use gentleness and affection rather than force. Do not depend on anyone but you for your emotional security.
Meanwhile, there are many details to sort out and deal with. Approach them confidently and with careful attention. Nervousness is bound to occur, and this natural fear arises from accepting a truth that you previously resisted. By accepting fear as part of the growing process, this emotion will move through you and out of you – all for the purpose of helping you understand what needs to be feared and what does not. You will also reach a clearer understanding of what triggered your fears in the first place, and how to deal effectively with whatever life throws your way.
Your powerful masculine mind (your consciousness or spirit), is expanding. It is trying to create space for your equally powerful feminine Will (which is made up of all your feelings, no matter how you label them). Take some quiet time to feel your feelings. Open up to them, let them in, experience them, and allow them to send messages to your mind as to what your options actually are.
Even if you think you already know how powerful your intuition is, September’s double 2 energy can bring it to exciting new levels. Then you will realize that your Will – your feelings – your emotional self – is feeding you the solution you have been seeking. In order to receive it, you must be receptive. You must be open.
Beware as long as you live of judging by appearances ~Jean de la Fontaine
September is a 3 Month in your 3 Year (3+9=1+2=3). This double-3 energy increases the intensity and potential of your experience:
Whatever you are experiencing, September’s double 3 vibrations emphasize the important choice: of moving toward freedom and fulfillment by listening to your own desires (some of which recently changed), or living unfulfilled because you believe your desires are unattainable or dependent on forces beyond your control.
A decision you make now will determine the quality of your life for some time to come. So, within the realms of your reality, do what you want to do – live as you want to live – and let go of any doubt as to how others may fit in with your plans. Whatever you started in July is now showing signs of progress. Seize every opportunity to move forward in the direction of your choice. Begin to create your desired future. The mere dreaming of it is not enough now. At this point, it makes no difference what others think of you or your plans. If you wait for their approval, the opportunity may be lost.
Take full responsibility for your own life. You now have a chance to feel more alive than you have felt in a long time.
An emotional situation may arise which forces you to express yourself in a way you thought you never could. Clearly, something needs to be said, and there will be a great improvement in the lives of all concerned when you say what is on your mind and in your heart.
Now, the power of words is stronger than ever, and what you have to say can set the record straight once and for all. Nothing can be gained from saying merely what you believe others want to hear. You may shock yourself as you realize just how deeply you feel about a particular matter; or how much you love a certain person. Or, perhaps a friendship or loyalty has been outgrown and it is time to go your separate ways.
Try to spend time with people who are supportive, creative, and expressive. Remember that every situation has the potential for either a creative or destructive outcome. Recognize how your actions and words affect others, and choose the road of PEACE. This does not contradict your need to speak up. Your desire for peace does not mean that your needs and feelings should be silenced just because someone else has a different point of view.
Do your homework. Only the facts are relevant. Avoid criticizing, gossiping, or resorting to hearsay – there is no peace there. And do not stretch yourself in too many different directions. Focus on what is important to you.
Social interaction or simple conversation could be enlightening. Someone you know, meet, or would like to meet, may have a major role to play in your future. Continue to take yourself and your goals seriously. Others will be noticing you this month, and while outer appearance does matter, remember that your true beauty comes from inside through a form of love we call confidence or self respect.
Your passion and confidence – or your defensiveness and insecurity – will rub off on others, creating either friendly or hostile environments. But who knows what brilliant ideas will surface when you release those barriers that your well disguised fear of rejection has placed around your creative mind? You are on this Earth for a reason!
Even the woodpecker owes his success to the fact that he uses his head and keeps pecking away until he finishes the job he starts. ~Coleman Cox
September is a 4 Month in your 4 Year (4+9=1+3=4). This double-4 energy increases the intensity and potential of your experience:
This year’s orderly 4 energy may have caused you to create rules and regulations for yourself without realizing how restricted your life would become. This was necessary earlier in the year so that you could get organized. However, by the end of September’s double 4 vibration, you should be organized, if you are not already. Only then will you be able to relax and be kind to yourself, which you need more than anything else right now.
Remember that getting organized is not meant to be the end result. It is just the beginning. Organization provides the foundation upon which other goals can take root and develop.
By the way, are you aware of how angry you are? You may prefer to deny the existence of this natural feeling, but it is there anyway. Perhaps it is the result of 4’s tendency to make you feel boxed-in and confined, but it is also likely that you never quite forgave a certain person for something that happened in the past, and as a result, are having to deal with some kind of dis-ease or disturbance in the present.
The saying forgive and forget is often misunderstood. In order to forgive, you have to remember – not forget. It may seem easier to bury (deny) painful events of the past and forget about them, but this is much harder on you in the long run as you must then carry those unexpressed feelings around with you – and resentment weighs a ton!
Those very feelings are likely to be the source of the pain you are currently experiencing, and forgiveness is the key to releasing it. Forgiveness is the key to improving so many different aspects of your life.
Don’t forgive for the sake of the other person. Forgive for your own sake, so that whatever happened can no longer hurt you. Real forgiveness comes from expressing the pain and anger out of your body, which then restores your ability to move forward, just as long as you do so with the firm INTENT of not hurting anyone else.
You may also be dealing with the fear that something will prevent you from making the changes you want to make, and the same intent must apply in that case, too. The quality of your intent – loving or unloving – can make the difference between a creative outcome and a destructive one.
Meanwhile, you may be seeking results that are currently too far ahead of their time and ignoring what should be aimed for in the present. It is time to redefine and simplify your life. This is a turning point at which you must take care of many details, some of which hold hidden opportunities – and to let go of other details once you see them for what they are – petty, unimportant, and distracting in the overall scheme of your life.
Avoid impulsive moves and do not take risks with your health, resources or general wellbeing. Take everything in your natural stride. Make time for things you enjoy, take frequent breaks, get adequate rest and try to be easier on yourself in terms of feeling that you should be accomplishing more than you currently are. You have not traveled this far through the arduous 4 year without learning that all problems have solutions if they are handled realistically. This means knowing what the problem actually is. Life is not throwing you anything you cannot handle.
Remember that you are not responsible for the happiness of others or for their current circumstances. This year, you needed to learn about limitation so that you could reach, feel the pressure of, and then push your limits away from you with your increased courage, (which, by the way, is the only antidote to fear).
Believe in yourself, and do not give up, because it is your belief in yourself which makes courage possible! No, you are not having some kind of break-down. On the contrary. In this month of concentrated 4 energy, you are experiencing the strong outer vibrations of a personal break-through.
A risk is anything with an uncertain outcome. Part of that uncertainty involves the possibility that things may go poorly and that you’ll experience a loss. If you allow for that, only then do your choices have the possibility of bearing fruit. ~Eric Francis
September is a 5 Month in your 5 Year (5+9=1+4=5). This double-5 energy increases the intensity and potential of your experience:
The 5 year provides opportunities for change, but it is up to you to make those changes happen. There is a pattern of behavior or attitude that really must change now, because it has been causing problems for you for a long time. It is time to take a chance on something new – or a different kind of chance, such as walking away from what you know does not work for you.
This month’s emphasis on gambling probably has little to do with playing cards, racing forms, lotteries, or the throwing of dice. Life does not come with guarantees, and as you already know, life itself, at this stage of our evolution, is one big gamble – the constant weighing up of the odds, followed by intuitively-based action. In this month of double 5 energy, you must accept the hand you have been dealt and make the very best of it.
Make the changes you have been putting off. Notice that when you change something positively on the inside, something positive follows in your outer reality. Refusing to deal with certain issues will prevent new opportunities from entering your life. Stay open and alert, because opportunity is all around you now. Be aware of your own reality, which includes noticing how other people’s circumstances affect yours. Do not allow anyone to curtail your freedom.
September’s double 5 vibration makes this an expansive and fast-paced month in which you will see how much you have going for you in both the short and long term. You must now navigate your way through this unpredictable energy that thrives on constructive change and different approaches to old problems.
Develop a strong determination to steer your life in the direction that feels right for you. What do you want? What will make you happy? What will it take to make it happen? These are the questions to focus on. It is time to broaden your horizons, look at the big picture, and make changes which will lead to a deeper sense of fulfillment.
A mountain is climbed one step at a time. Continue to take steps and you will eventually reach the top. Choose your steps carefully, but decisively. What was it about the way you handled previous choices that always caused you to lose the opportunities involved?
Remember that some people climb mountains not only for the challenge, but also for the fun, the thrill, the adventure, and the scenery, all of which are experienced before the top is reached. Be a part of your own adventure! Do not give up just as it seems that you can succeed. Persevere. Remember: until you change what needs to be changed inside – your outer reality will remain as it is – and that is a sobering thought!
This month, an unusual agreement or arrangement may mark the beginning of an unexpected responsibility or situation, (although you may not fully understand this until next year). You may encounter something or someone whose presence, positive or negative, will be felt for some time to come. Be aware of how easily you are influenced by others and be determined to keep an open (aware) mind.
Recognize any past mistakes pertaining to indecision and impulsiveness, and if events take a sudden turn, remember that the 5 year is one in which you must learn to flow comfortably with life’s diversity; the different; the unexpected.
Flow with any sudden movement confidently, responsibly, with high expectation, and with your eyes and mind wide open. Your 5 adventure is not over yet. In fact, by the end of September, you will realize that a new phase of your adventure is only just beginning.
We do not remember days. We remember moments. ~Cesare Pavese
September is a 6 Month in your 6 Year (6+9=1+5=6). This double-6 energy increases the intensity and potential of your experience:
Suddenly, you have a change of focus or priority. September highlights responsibility and those to whom you are closely connected. Whatever your situation, there can be no avoiding the deep emotions involved.
6 is the number of balance. But it is also the number of extremes. You are likely to experience both while the 6 energy is operating at double force this month. Focus on issues and people you care about, and acknowledge your own insecurities and areas of unreasonableness. You may be feeling more fear than you are willing to admit, and it is important that you do not allow guilt to cause you to deny your fear. Only by facing your fear can you develop courage.
If there are areas of disagreement or ill feeling, now is the time to set things straight and aim for peace, and if others are unwilling to take a peaceful approach, then aim to achieve peace for yourself. However, it is essential that you at least try to understand and be understood. Accept the right of others to be who they are and to live their lives the way they choose. Any tendency to pre-judge other people and other realities needs to end now.
There may be a real problem to deal with this month – or – you may realize that this year of problem-solving, counseling, care-giving, balancing, and healing is coming to an end. Therefore, be sure you are not simply creating a problem for the sake of having a crisis to solve.
What about your own life? Your own needs? Have you stayed true to your responsibility to live more freely? Determine what your obligations are now. Your priorities have certainly changed since the beginning of the year, which is all part of the 6 urge to reinvent yourself in a way that feels right for you.
This month will affect your sense of home and belonging and will involve your closest relationships. The acceptance and validation you desire will come through your understanding of the individual personalities and circumstances of all concerned. Do whatever you can to provide a harmonious atmosphere within this circle.
You may be called upon for advice or practical assistance, or your input may not be sought at all. Either way, you are being released from a certain obligation this month. There is no need to feel empty or offended if others are no longer depending on you. Perhaps it is time to release your dependence on them.
Express yourself openly without imposing your judgments or rules. 6 is a cycle of parenting, and whether there are children in your life or not, you have been a parent to someone or something this year. Perhaps you yourself are the child involved. One way or another, this year has been just as it should be, an emotional experience.
If you feel disappointment, loneliness, or abandonment, it could be that you have still not learned to love yourself first. And yet, you really have learned a lot about love, caring, and responsibility in the past ten months, and you will soon be embarking on a new journey of self-discovery which will take you into next year’s 7 year cycle.
Meanwhile, stay away from extreme or turbulent situations or, if there is something you can do to diffuse such a situation without hurting yourself or anyone else, then by all means do so. Now is the time to bring all the various aspects of your life into a more comfortable balance.
The will to win doesn’t mean anything because everybody wants to win. It is the will to prepare to win that makes the difference. ~ Unknown
September is a 7 Month in your 7 Year (7+9=1+6=7). This double-7 energy increases the intensity and potential of your experience
The 7 vibration of wisdom is surrounding you from all angles, revealing how your need to keep your feelings secret has prevented you from reaching your true potential. Now, rather than cutting yourself off from your deepest hopes and dreams, you must realize how vital your emotions are to your wellbeing.
Secrecy (which you may be calling privacy) is of no use to you now. Free Will is ever expanding OPENNESS! And, should something of a strange or secretive nature be exposed, do not run. Do not hide. Face the facts, and let the dignity of the 7 energy carry you, in safety, to a new and more fulfilling chapter of your life. 7 emphasizes secrets of all kinds, and September is likely to bring information or insight which will shed light on important facts that have somehow been kept from you.
You have traveled a long way since the beginning of the year. If you experienced some kind of ‘fall’ or setback, understand that this had a positive purpose. It is enabling you to learn so much more about yourself, about those around you, and about life. You now have an opportunity to emerge from whatever happened with an expanded confidence. A startling new awareness can shed light on the dull or shadowy road you have been traveling.
There is more activity than usual this month and yet it causes you to have more profound and introspective needs than usual. Things may not be exactly as you want them, but this month’s revelations let you know you’re going to get there! The plans you make now will prepare you for next year’s dynamic activities. Yes, within the next twelve months, you will arrive at a much more stable and pleasant destination.
Use this month to fine-tune and expand those plans or ideas. Patience is required. This does not mean putting up with unbearable people or situations. It means paying meticulous attention to detail and denying nothing about your reality. Your intuition is extremely potent right now. Trust it.
Focus on your ambitions, relationships, your expertise or special qualities, and your renewed sense of self-worth. Plan to take the direction you know is right for you. Ultimately, putting the pieces of the puzzle together and finding your true direction is what this year has been all about.
If things are not going well, perhaps you are still unwilling to accept that certain ideas and methods simply cannot work in today’s reality. Are you refusing to see a new potential that is sitting there right under your nose?
Analyze. Research. Plan. Study. Do your homework! With all your senses, visualize your goals in great detail. Review the past and express the strong emotions that emerge from your memories. You will then be able to see your potential for success, rather than only what is preventing it.
Be your own best friend! You are unique; you are special, and rather than fall into the trap of peer pressure which forces you to follow the crowd, appreciate just how different you are. It is your very differentness that enables you to stand out from the crowd and reach your own expectations of fulfillment. Mediocrity is a tragic loss of Free Will.
There is so much to look forward to; so much to plan. Just remember that planning means LOOKING AHEAD – ANTICIPATING – SEEING THE LARGER, LONG TERM PICTURE.
7 is also the number of FAITH, the depth of which depends on how deeply you believe in something that is currently unknowable.
Dreams are real while they are happening. Can we say any more about life? ~Havelock Ellis
September is an 8 Month in your 8 Year (8+9=1+7=8). This double-8 energy increases the intensity and potential of your experience:
A specific power is emerging in you, but because you are unfamiliar with how this feels, nervous tension may arise. Try to relax. This is your own creative power rising, and the tension you are feeling is simply your resistance to it. Once you recognize this, you will also realize that you are surrounded by opportunity – along with a strong feeling that there’s no turning back now! Take one step at a time, focus, and let each step prepare you for the next.
Dignity and self-assuredness are the result of truly understanding what you are involved in. Be willing to learn. Experience the balance – and the confidence – that accurate understanding brings.
Do not cut off from your feelings because that is precisely where your power is coming from. Your collective feelings are your WILL, which cannot be free if your emotions are not free to express themselves and thereby move through and out of your body.
Allow yourself to feel your fear of failure as it battles with your fear of success. Regain your focus and do not try to produce the end result before its right time.
Physical pressure in the neck or head, or deep in the gut – the solar plexus – is likely to be the result of denied anger which is bursting to get out. Look for the true cause of this tension. Once your feelings are expressed and the pressure is released, you will be able to proceed with confidence. Otherwise, you run the risk of alienating those whose support you really do need.
You do not have to confront anyone else. But you do have to confront yourself with the significance of something that happened to you – or is happening to you. If not, the magnetism of your denied anger will draw petty annoyances to you. And fear may be fueling your anger – fear of this enormous power that you know you possess but are not quite sure how to use; fear that if you allow others to distract you, you will lose the momentum it has taken so long to amass.
This month, the double 8 energy may send you another clash of Wills to help you accept – and relax with – your increased strength. If you are afraid of losing your focus – do not lose your focus. You are capable of handling more than one situation at a time. And, you are in a stronger position than you may think.
Give others a fair hearing without losing sight of your own goals. Then, as you increase your tolerance, whatever is pressuring you will then seem less powerful and less significant. Work through these feelings and then get back to the work at hand – as soon as you can.
Only by dealing calmly and efficiently with this month’s events can you make the breakthrough that is possible. You are now able to make a difficult job look easy, even though you know just how hard you have had to work. Remember why you chose this path in the first place, and enjoy what you are doing again. It is time for a dynamic display of confidence which is based not only on accurate information, but also the correct understanding of it. Yes, now is the time to be who you say you are.
… So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past….. ~Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby
September is a 9 Month in your 9 Year (9+9=1+8=9). This double-9 energy increases the intensity and potential of your experience:
This month of double 9 energy emphasizes completion. Yes, this has been an emotional year for you because the events of many years are all coming to a head now. Stop holding all that pain in. Let it out! Let it go. Get it over with. And get everything you’ve been putting off out of the way. Let September’s double 9 energy take you on its healing rollercoaster so that once and for all the truth about your past can be buffeted to the surface where you, and possibly others, can finally accept it for what it is.
Go back over your life’s journey and remember everything you’ve done, everyone you’ve met, everywhere you’ve been, everything you’ve lost and gained, given and taken; your thoughts, your feelings, your love, your happiness, your anger, your fears, your passions, your ideas, your laughter, your tears, your satisfaction and your guilt – everything.
Even if you believe you are living fully in the moment, you will now learn just how cleverly you have mastered the art of denial. Just look at what is happening in the world and you will realize that denial of reality is what keeps the turmoil going.
The same is true of your own situation. As issues of the past continue to bombard your present-day reality, you will know that continued denial is no longer an option. The past is always present. The past shapes the present, and only your full acceptance of the past – the recent past included – can bring you into a much needed state of ease. As you start to feel more comfortable with your past, you will be able to feel yourself moving into the richness of present time. And from the present, you can point yourself in the direction you want your future to take.
Your past is your truth, your experience. It is what it took to bring you to where you are. It is what it took to make you the person you are, and to inspire you to be the person you are meant to become.
You may not have all the answers, but you can sense that the best is yet to come. Your emotions are not the enemy. Emotional denial is the enemy. Your feelings simply require the freedom to express themselves.
Stop denying that you’re afraid of what might lay ahead. No one can know what the future holds, but we do know that what the present holds is sure to influence it. That is why letting go of the pain or fear you are holding onto is so important now.
You may feel an emptiness inside after this emotional release because of the sheer pressure that has left your body. Guilt may try to fill the space you have created by telling you that it is wrong to be so emotional. Guilt does not want this healing to take place; it simply wants you to feel guilty. Recognize guilt’s wretched voice and move away from it, without denying its existence. Remember that happiness is also an emotion which needs to be expressed as and when it arises.
