MONTHLY FORECAST BY CHRISTINE DELOREY
2018 is a 2 Year, derived from the Master Number 11. (2+0+1+8=1+1=2). To calculate your number for 2018, simply add 2 to your month and day of birth. (Do NOT include your year of birth in this calculation).
For instance, if your birthday is May 26, add 5+2+6+2. This adds up to 15, and 1+5 = 6. (keep adding until you reach a single digit). In this example the Year Number is 6.
Throughout 2018, use your Year Number to read your weekly and monthly numerology forecasts.
THE MONTHLY FORECASTS – OCTOBER
Monthly Forecast for OCTOBER IN THE 1 YEAR: this is a 2 Month for you – a combination of your 1 Personal Year and the 10th calendar month: 1+1+0=2…
The quest for certainty blocks the search for meaning. Uncertainty is the very condition which impels people to unfold their powers. ~Eric Fromm
Wherever you have been pushing too hard or focusing too narrowly, life will find a way to stop you from doing so this month. But don’t let it come to that. Stop trying to force your way ahead. You will achieve more by calming everything down, reducing the pressure on all concerned, including yourself, and simply accepting October’s diversions as they occur.
Take one day at a time and know that it is natural for you to be feeling highly sensitive, emotional, and responsive right now. Attention to detail, patience, and a truly caring attitude will serve you well.
Your physical body may experience unfamiliar sensations this month because it is feeling the effect of certain emotions that are pushing outwardly in an effort to free themselves. Remember that stress, (including physical pain), does not come from the emotions themselves, but from the level of resistance we put up against feeling them.
No matter how ‘negative’ your feelings seem, the kindest thing you can do for yourself is to let yourself feel whatever is in there, express those feelings outwardly, privately and safely, let them go, and RELAX. Give yourself this kindness.
1 is the number of ego – and the sensitive energies of October are likely to affect your ego substantially. Notice where you have been competing without even realizing it and, then, notice how your stress (and pain) is reduced when you replace rivalry and competition with patience and cooperation.
Stop trying to live up to other people’s ideals. Some of the greatest contributions to life have been made by people who ignored society’s ‘rules’ and simply did what they felt to be right.
Be tactful and helpful. This is not a matter of denying your own feelings, thoughts, and needs, but of discovering what your current feelings, thoughts, and needs actually are.
Others may be finding you difficult to relate to – or understand what you are experiencing. You want them to be patient with you, but you will also need to be patient with them. More than anything, you must be patient with yourself and your own progress. Stop trying to push against forces which you do not, at this time, have the power to change.
PATIENCE and DETAIL are major themes now. The way things look at the beginning of October will have changed drastically by the end of the month. Do not rush into anything until all the information is in place.
You now have a chance to form some kind of partnership in which individual talents can be combined. Cooperation is a two-way street, and no matter who else is involved, each must feel free to request and give cooperation as needed. Trust is essential. Try to provide an atmosphere in which everyone can feel at ease, and you will find that the wheels of progress turn smoothly, instead of getting snagged on each other’s insecurities, fears, resentment, impatience, or different viewpoints.
Slow it all down. You are experiencing a major transformation in your life. A new reality – a new beginning. Let it unfold as it needs to, and you will experience the evolutionary power of your own patience.
October’s slower and humbler pace will help you to heal, emotionally, mentally, and physically from the impact of past events – and you do need to heal from them. Don’t overreact to what seems to be taking the focus away from you or your plans. If someone else takes credit for your ideas or efforts, it is possible that you have outgrown that particular aspect of your life and need to move on to something completely different.
What happens in October may plunge you into a period of uncertainty, but this is actually improving your overall timing. It can help open your mind to something that will release you from the old and move you forward in your evolutionary journey. Instead of taking center stage, stay in the background. Use this month to prepare for some kind of ‘entrance’ or ‘exit’ in November.
There is no need to avoid issues or people now. Face them – and tactfully express where you stand and how you feel. Before you can move on, you need to relax with the people and situations that influence your life. Give them your support; listen to them; cooperate with them; focus on them; include them.
Monthly Forecast for OCTOBER IN THE 2 YEAR: this is a 3 Month for you – a combination of your 2 Personal Year and the 10th calendar month: 2+1+0=3…
I was a hidden treasure and I longed to be known. ~old Sufi saying
October’s ‘light’ vibrations suggest that some problems are not as huge as they once seemed – and at least one needs to be taken more seriously. Your situation needs to be put into a more realistic perspective. New ideas are needed, and this cycle is trying to help you open your imagination. To start with, imagine what you want to be doing, and most importantly, how you want to be feeling – a year from now, or even five years from now.
As you start to feel next year’s creative 3 Cycle merging with this year’s 2 energy of ‘patience’, the realization that you need more power in this world is likely to trigger a renewed passion in you. Communicate from your heart, in a way that touches and connects with the hearts of others. Be genuine. That’s what others really need from you right now.
Spoken and written words have great significance this month. Your ability to communicate intelligently and honestly will impact your chances of success, and will affect the roles others will play in your life both now and in the new year. This month, even the words of songs or movies, or random words from strangers, can trigger useful ideas, feelings, memories and motivations. But never forget that one’s use of words can also confuse, deceive, manipulate, and hurt.
Developing genuine friendliness and closeness with others requires you to feel your true feelings toward them, which may at first be difficult. This year, old friends may not have been so friendly, and those you did not like may have emerged as allies. However, you may meet someone now, or several people, who can make a positive difference in your life.
Someone who is in a position to help has started to take you seriously. Remember that you are still in the slow-paced, low-energy 2 Year. Don’t force anything – but do bring your knowledge and talents to the foreground.
This year has taught you that realism amplifies the joys of life and love, and that teamwork and equality provide the only realistic means of achieving peace and unity. This is a chance to create optimism and enjoyment, not only in your own life, but also in the lives of others. Interact and network when you can.
Social acceptance may be important to you, but deep down, you want more than that. You are seeking a more comfortable position in life. One of the basic lessons of this month is that you will never achieve social acceptance or any satisfying position until you feel these things within yourself. You cannot expect others to create them for you. You must know where you want to be and realistically find a way to position yourself there. This will not happen overnight. You are still ‘in training’, and now would be a good time to admit that you don’t already know it all. Be willing to learn as you go.
Meanwhile, have some fun! Socialize. Experience the joy that comes from art, skill, and beauty. Entertain. Be entertained. Pamper yourself in whatever way feels good to you. Let yourself feel. Let yourself heal.
You do not have to be the star of the show to get your point across, or to enjoy yourself. Let someone else bask in the limelight and notice how friendliness, acceptance, and patience take you from one satisfying experience to the next. We can’t always have things exactly as we want them. Sometimes we must accept things just as they are if we are ever to figure out what needs to be done next.
Monthly Forecast for OCTOBER IN THE 3 YEAR: this is a 4 Month for you – a combination of your 3 Personal Year and the 10th calendar month: 3+1+0=4…
Great things are not done by impulse, but by a series of small things brought together. ~Vincent Van Gogh
Life is becoming serious – to the same degree that you must now take yourself, your rights, your health, and your goals more seriously. You are seeing what stands between you and your aspirations, and the work that must be done to arrive at the results you want. Accept reality – and get better organized.
In the months ahead, you will have to make practical changes, but don’t let this month’s delays and distractions cause you to forget that freedom and fulfillment are what you are aiming for.
Look for ways to simplify your life, rather than complicate it. Find creative ways to bring order to areas of chaos. Determine which problems are of your own making and realize that some misunderstandings require more sensitivity – and recognition of the fact that you do indeed have your own faults and weak spots.
Do not be afraid to be afraid. Feel your fears and allow them to do their job, which is to alert you to potential trouble and point out alternate routes. And be sensitive to the fact that others are experiencing fear too, no matter what denial mechanisms are in place. Hurt feelings can cause unexpected reactions, so try to be patient with yourself and those around you. Try to work things out together. You may have to be firm and resolved, and diplomatic and patient all at the same time.
Any anger that arises may be an attempt to hide your fear of failure. This can make you appear unsure of what you are trying to achieve, especially if you resort to blaming others or finding excuses for what appears to be a lack of answers. Remember that your goals are your goals – and you are responsible for their every detail!
The events of October are preparing you for success, and you are in a stronger position than you may think. However, your definition of success may change quite drastically now. You have traveled a long way this year, and you need to let that fact bring a sense of contentment into your life. Social interaction is still an important factor and can be used not only to ease October’s stressful episodes, but also to make new friends and useful connections.
Assess all the possibilities rather than getting stuck in the problem itself. This practical cycle enables you to see other people in a different light. Do you need to break away for a while so that you can figure things out for yourself, form your own opinions, and make decisions that are right for you? Or, are you so detached from others that you never listen to them anyway, even when their advice is sound and timely?
Now is the time to create a comfortable balance between your aspirations and your fear of rejection. Take everything slowly and methodically. Notice how you make extra work for yourself by insisting on doing things your way – or refusing to accept that there really are simpler or more efficient approaches. If you have taken something as far as you can take it, you must either let it evolve into something else or, perhaps, just let it go.
The walls of this restrictive month will slow you down whenever you move too fast or when you are not focused on the steps you are taking. Pace yourself realistically, and rest when you need to.
Let others be who they are – or who they pretend to be. You must be yourself so that you can move forward again. Notice just how powerful and resourceful you are when you allow yourself to think, feel, and act freely.
A new situation will enter your life this month. Whatever it is, make sure you react to it in a way that best serves your long-term interests. October is no time for rash or thoughtless moves. Take yourself and your goals seriously, and patiently assess where each move is likely to lead, before you make it. This will enable you to position yourself just where you need to be.
Monthly Forecast for OCTOBER IN THE 4 YEAR: this is a 5 Month for you – a combination of your 4 Personal Year and the 10th calendar month: 4+1+0=5…
We act as if comfort and luxury were the chief requirements of life when all that we need to make us really happy is something to be enthusiastic about. ~Charles Kingsley
You experienced a kind of ‘slow shock’ this year which, hopefully, has triggered a growing sense of purpose, identity, and determination. The 4 road can be quite exhausting, so don’t be too hard on yourself if things did not go as you hoped they would.
Once you start to unravel yourself from the numbness and get used to thinking and feeling on a deeper level again, you will realize that you are very much alive and ready to alter your attitude – and your direction.
You are entering an exciting fast-moving phase which requires a healthy reliable body – and now is a good time to repair any damage that this year’s stresses and strains may have incurred.
The narrow 4 road gets wider this month – and brighter too. You have choices – and a decision will have to be made. You now have a chance to do something unusual, different, daring, and exciting; to experience new places, people, and activities, and bring a sense of adventure into your life.
The constant grind you experienced this year was never meant to be a permanent situation. Old routines need to be changed. Listen, watch, and feel, for potential opportunity. Your awareness of reality will determine just how much power you have to change things. Be resourceful. Don’t be afraid to ask for the help you need – but do make sure you ask the right people. There is no sense in asking of others what they do not have the ability or inclination to give.
Be honest about what you are feeling. Unexpressed emotions can stop you from taking even the simplest steps toward improving your circumstances. Then you will have to rely on others to tell you what you can or cannot do, and even what is right and wrong. The more dependent you are on outside factors, the more you will become governed by them.
Right now, you are learning how to break free amid other people’s energies and realities. The events of this year have made very clear just how un-free your Will is, and you are probably eager to remedy that situation. Although there is no guarantee that your attempts at damage-control will succeed, now is certainly the time to try.
An idea that you previously ruled out because it didn’t seem appropriate or achievable, may be exactly what your situation needs. Don’t ignore the tension you are experiencing – you really do need some peace and fairness in your world.
Direct your sights toward new ambitions and interests. Aim high. In a year that places such a strong emphasis on work and your sense of identity, an important change will occur in these areas, or in your attitude towards your work and sense of identity. Is the way you identify yourself based only on the work you do – or don’t do? Where does your work fit in to your overall vision of happiness?
Truth is everywhere. Truth is reality – and this cycle can help you find your truth by recognizing your mistakes, learning from them, and not repeating them.
Try to feel relaxed and free. Accept your situation with renewed enthusiasm and take some breaks for fun and relaxation. Little by little, you are becoming the person you really want to be – so stop being so hard on yourself!=
Monthly Forecast for OCTOBER IN THE 5 YEAR: this is a 6 Month for you – a combination of your 5 Personal Year and the 10th calendar month: 5+1+0=6…
Respect for the rights of others is peace. ~Benito Juarez
October emphasizes CHANGE in the areas of family, responsibility, relationship, domestic or legal matters, healing old and current wounds; marriage, peace, education, your need to love and be loved, and your sense of home and belonging.
Love has many different forms, and it is possible to love different people or things in different ways without letting guilt enter the situation. For example, it is possible to love a person one way and your work another way, forming two very different marriages in your life.
Current circumstances enable you to love everything you truly love, freely and deeply, by coming face to face with guilt and blame and refusing to be ruled by them. Guilt and blame destroy love and freedom. You cannot destroy or eliminate guilt and blame because they do, indeed, exist. But you can untangle yourself from their ‘stickiness’ by refusing to judge someone else’s reality. The less you judge yourself, the more self acceptance you feel, and the more lovable you and others become. The judgments you make in this cycle ARE guilt and blame.
This year is enabling you to find out who and what you love so that your love and your life can continue to expand. If you now feel a strong protective urge, be very careful not to go to extremes in preserving what you believe is ‘yours’.
There is room in your life for all the responsibilities that are yours, including your responsibility to live as you want to live. It is also possible that a responsibility could be taken off your hands so that a different one can be assumed.
Find a way to live your life without ever having to say, “I have no choice”. You do have a choice in every move you make, although your options can be difficult to recognize. If love is what you are feeling, then the choices you make will be based on love and will automatically be right for the situation. The choices you make create your reality, but choices that are made for you offer no choice at all. The power of choice is largely what this year has been all about. Weigh the reality of each situation with your right to live freely.
Now, you may have to focus on a specific family member, neighbor, authority figure, or close friend. The home itself is also emphasized. Whatever the case, you will need to stabilize all those things that matter to you, because they represent the basis of your upcoming 6 Year. One thing is certain. Love is in the air. Feel it. Love it. Freedom thrives in love. Great strides can now be made which can lead to more ease and increased security for all concerned if you make a choice based on love.
In the past, you may have concentrated too heavily on one area of your life while another was neglected. You are now moving closer to the creation of a more comfortable balance – just as long as you can break a pattern of behavior or attitude that has kept you running in the same old circles for SO long!
Monthly Forecast for OCTOBER IN THE 6 YEAR: this is a 7 Month for you – a combination of your 6 Personal Year and the 10th calendar month: 6+1+0=7…
I look over the various parts of my character with perplexity. I recognize that I am made up of several persons, and that the person who at the moment has the upper hand, will eventually give place to another. But who is the real one? All of them? Or none? ~Somerset Maughm
October is more about planning than it is about doing. The magnetic pull of next year’s 7 cycle is beginning to alter your view of the world and you may feel uncertain about life itself, particularly where personal security and domestic matters are concerned.
Take some time and space for yourself and carefully think things out. Being alone is part of October’s positive agenda, but if you allow yourself to be distracted from your feelings and thoughts, not only will you still need to be alone, but you may also feel lonely.
You are unsure of what lies ahead, and there can be a tendency to think the worst. This indicates that certain fears are at last coming to the surface and need to be recognized, experienced, expressed honestly and healed. Do not be afraid to be afraid. Only when you genuinely feel your fear will you realize that its purpose is a protective and constructive one. Most importantly, by feeling your fears they arise, you will be able to discern what actually needs to be feared and what does not and, therefore, prevent others from using fear as a weapon of control.
This cycle enables you to find your inner strength and you must understand that your emotions are not a ‘weakness’, but a natural gauge for assessing and dealing with reality.
Analyze your situation, but don’t force things or overexert yourself. Notice how the past is being vividly reflected into the present. This is deepening your emotional and intellectual awareness so that you can plan your way out of your present circumstances and simultaneously, plan for the future.
This is a cycle of wisdom and understanding, and a time of self-appreciation. Your intuition is made up of your collective feelings and is trying to make itself heard. Shhhh. Listen. Your thoughts and feelings are separate energies. They need to communicate freely with each other so that you can know what is happening and where you currently stand. Where there is confusion, try to relax all mental judgments so that your true feelings have a chance to make themselves known.
There is no need to allow your different wavelength to alienate you from others. Just take some time and space for yourself when you need to. You may feel an urge to criticize everyone and everything around you, as you notice flaws that you did not see before. Try to remain flexible and open-minded, and notice where certain information has been over or under stated.
This is a month of ‘secrets’ and ‘mystery’. Notice how these two words fit accurately into your life, as you start to accept the reality of someone or something that has played – or can possibly play – a major role in your life. Only by coming to terms with a secret you have kept from yourself – a secret feeling – will you ever really know where or with whom you belong. Be honest. Admit how you really feel, because acceptance of your true feelings will allow them to HEAL, and then evolve into a workable solution. October is a time for studying, learning and planning, not doing – not yet.
Monthly Forecast for OCTOBER IN THE 7 YEAR: this is an 8 Month for you – a combination of your 7 Personal Year and the 10th calendar month: 7+1+0=8…
I never thought people would take my thoughts seriously; I know I never did. ~Albert Einstein
Some of the knowledge you gained this year can now be put to practical and realistic use. You know that a significant change must occur in the level of power you have in the world. You have not come this far in life only to remain unfulfilled. You know that you can improve your life by improving the quality of what you contribute to it.
As you start to feel next year’s powerful 8 vibration overlapping with this year’s introspective 7 energy, you may want to make improvements to the work you do, the conditions in which you live, your relationships, your ability to communicate, or all of these areas. October provides glimpses of greater possibilities, and instills a new sense of ambition that is based on realities which can no longer be ignored or denied.
Certain actions can be implemented, but remember that you are still in the 7 Year which encourages planning rather than doing. On an inner level, your horizons can certainly be broadened, enabling you to see that you can, indeed, expand what you once thought were your limits. But there is still much knowledge and insight to soak up between now and the end of the year. In order to avoid disappointment, try not to push too far too soon, or expect the cooperation of others before they are ready or able to give it.
This year’s journey has been a profoundly spiritual and emotional one for you. Your intuition is very strong now – highlighting the importance of a balanced coexistence between the emotional, spiritual, and physical aspects of your life. This recognition will not only open your eyes to your own greater potential, but will also open your heart to the needs and potentials of others.
As new opportunities begin to appear, you must reacquaint yourself with the more earthly and material aspects of life. Opportunities should be approached decisively and confidently, with dignity and composure, bearing in mind that it will take more time and effort for the benefits to fully materialize. The tide is beginning to turn in your favor. So, take yourself seriously. Have patience. Be peaceful. Believe in life. Believe in you.
A new approach to financial and business matters is necessary. Not only are we living in a rapidly changing world but also, in a world that has already changed drastically. Many old beliefs about prosperity, financial security and power are no longer valid. Continue to observe, study, research, analyze, and learn.
Approach all matters in a businesslike and realistic way. Express yourself with confidence, but be willing to admit where you have gone wrong and learn from your mistakes.
Stay alert. Do your homework before making strong statements or taking irreversible action. If you are fully aware, there will be no need for nervousness or ill-timed reactions. Feel the dynamics of your own personal power emerging from this year of learning. Be patient. It will not be too long before you will be using all this new knowledge to your full advantage.
Monthly Forecast for OCTOBER IN THE 8 YEAR: this is a 9 Month for you – a combination of your 8 Personal Year and the 10th calendar month: 8+1+0=9…
If it feels as if you have taken this route before, maybe it is because you have. All life goes in cycles and it is, therefore, inevitable that certain flashes from the past will appear at various times in your existence. The only difference is that the lessons learned from previous experiences mean that you are better able to handle them the next time around. ~Sally Brompton
It is said that “the great artist is the one who knows when to stop”, and the cleansing energy of October is giving you a chance to bring a certain matter to a close; to tie up the loose ends and get things finished. The emphasis is on your sense of satisfaction, as it is this feeling that will prevent you from taking things too far, or finishing prematurely. It will enable you to let something go without being overcome by fear, and to conclude something at exactly the right time.
Some fear is inevitable as you wonder what the future will bring, or whether you are doing the right thing. Feel this fear because it has much to offer in terms of keeping you safe and secure. Express it. Let it go. And remember that success is achieved after your satisfaction has allowed your goal to move forward. Success, therefore, is always behind you or in front of you. It is the feeling of satisfaction that is experienced in the present.
There are no guarantees when it comes to creating your destiny, but some kind of ending that takes place now will reveal new potential for you. Feel the satisfaction and relief of knowing that you’ve given it all you can give. Then, let your belief in yourself attract its own success.
A break from your own ambitions may be needed now so that you can better understand where your journey has taken you, and to heal whatever wounds you incurred in the process of empowering yourself. Loosen up, relax some of the rigidity you thought was necessary this year, and let yourself unwind.
Your passion to succeed is commendable, but it may have caused you to overlook some of your most basic needs. Your passion to succeed will stay with you for a long time to come, but the first stages of a particular goal must be ended or completed in October so that a new phase can begin in November.
The efforts you made this year have brought you to a brand new level of potential. You are reaching the end of an old path. Now, although you have come up in the world, you are at the bottom of the next level. To some, this can be frightening. To some, this can feel like failure. It is not. You recently became a big fish in a small pond and, according to the choices you make, you could soon find yourself swimming in an ocean of greater opportunity. There is much to learn and, as ideas you once cherished are turned inside out, you are likely to learn something new, unexpected, and valuable. Try to give yourself to others in some way, not when guilt tells you it is the right thing to do, but when your own feelings tell you it is what you want to do.
There is a lot going on in October, including an opportunity to feel the satisfaction that comes from compassion and giving. As you know, power comes in many forms and, this month, as a segment of your life phases itself out, you are likely to experience the greatest power of all ….. LOVE.
Monthly Forecast for OCTOBER IN THE 9 YEAR: this is a 1 Month for you – a combination of your 9 Personal Year and the 10th calendar month: 9+1+0=1+0=1…
Perfection is attained by slow degrees; it requires the hand of time. ~Voltaire
As next year’s 1 cycle of new beginnings starts to merge with this year’s 9 cycle of endings, something is likely to stir your imagination and restore your optimism. The less unfinished business you have to deal with, the more clearly you will be able to sense your way ahead.
Yes, you can take an important step forward now – cautiously. You need to be sure that a new venture or relationship is not just a different form of a past mistake. You are still in the 9 Year but, now, you can start to position yourself closer to the reality you want, provided you make yourself aware of precisely what you are dealing with.
When you enter the 1 Year in January, you will need a flexible plan of action because 1 is the number of change – and everything will change next year. 1 is also the number of independence, and if you are feeling alone, or that the cooperation you need is not available, life is pointing out your areas of dependence.
Yes, you do need the cooperation and support of others, but you cannot depend on them for your happiness, success, or well-being. If you keep the needs and feelings of others in mind, cooperation will be given freely. It should not be expected or demanded.
This is a month of fantasy and reality, give and take, ups and downs. This erratic movement can increase your confidence if you do not take things personally and realize that others are not the cause of your problems. Your unwillingness to let go of old beliefs, old fear, old pain, old resentment, old grief, old guilt, old blame, and old habits may be causing an uncomfortable rift between you and someone else who really does need to be understood, accepted, helped, and/or forgiven. Make sure feelings of superiority or inadequacy do not get the better of you.
Begin something new – nothing major because major beginnings cannot succeed within your current energy cycles. Start something that will prepare the ground for next year’s monumental changes. Although some positive action can be taken now, the nature of October’s vibrations are producing a “hurry up and wait” atmosphere. And yet it is obvious that this year’s encounter with the past is enabling you to move in the direction of your choice.
Allow each moment to move into its natural position, behind you, where it cannot impede your freedom to move forward. Feeling your feelings, as they arise, moment-by-moment, until they are completed, is the natural sequence that ensures continued personal freedom.
While some feelings are pleasant and others are painful, feeling all your feelings is needed. Cutting them off before they have had a chance to complete themselves means that they will remain stuck inside your body, which will prevent you from ever really knowing what’s happening. Apply this understanding as a way of life, rather than just a mental concept, and notice how original and creative you are when you allow your feelings to move freely.
Meanwhile, do not depend on someone else’s approval. Feel what you desire and deserve in this lifetime and expect to get it because, only from the acceptance of your desire, can you know if – and how – it can be fulfilled.
