Your Personal Cycle Number for 2004
To find out your personal numerology cycle for this year, add the numbers in your month and day of birth to the numbers of the year 2004 (Remember, your yearly cycle number changes at the beginning of each year) .
Example: If your birthday is March 25, then calculate 3 + 25 + 2004 = 2032
Keep adding until you reach a single digit. 2 + 0 + 3 + 2 = 7
In this instance, the yearly cycle number throughout 2003 is 7
After last year's deeply emotional trip, you now need to find your bearings and accept whatever your present reality happens to be - and the way it is making you feel. Don't push too far ahead. Be patient, observant, and considerate of the needs of others. Explain to them that you intend to make a fresh start this year, and that something - or everything - must change. Communicate your intentions clearly and diplomatically - even if you are not yet sure how you want things to change. Let others express their feelings too. You may need each other's support throughout the year. This is a cycle in which to both give and seek cooperation, to find some common ground, and create a spirit of partnership. This cycle of connectedness is pointing out that when an action is taken in one area, it creates ripples of energy that effect all areas. Imagine being in a crowd situation in which you are being pushed by the person behind or next to you. The tendency is to blame this person instead of the one at the back who made the original push and created a domino effect. Fear of being crushed then develops into hostility between you and the one closest to you. Look for the real cause of any discomfort you are feeling. Many of your circumstances in 2004 will be lessons in the appreciation of individuality and humanity's amazing diversity. Our experiences are made up from the feelings they evoke and the understandings or judgments that follow. Your feelings and your thoughts are not the same thing. It is necessary for you to know the difference between them and allow them to come together in agreement. Knowing precisely what you think and feel is the only way to be free. Otherwise you will forever be in a state of confusion as your controlling mind tells you one thing and your freedom-loving feelings long for something else. Focus on personal relationships so that a mutual acceptance can be reached; so that peace is in the air and there is a relaxed feeling between all concerned; so that love can flourish -- or be found. Make this a gentle month. Force nothing. And hold on, inwardly and outwardly, to your personal dreams and desires. Pay attention to those time-consuming details. Look for important connections and clues in all that is happening within and around you. The circumstances of someone else are likely to provide great insight. Take a back seat. Quietly observe. Get a sense for what is really going on inside your own complexity. From what may seem an unlikely source, you will find a missing link - a connection - between something that appears to have little to do with you, and the course you will be taking for the next several years. January invites you to find the link between your past and your future which, of course, can only be found in the PRESENT.
You are not responsible for other people's problems and they are not responsible for yours. However, the people in your life this month are here to connect you to specific realities that need your attention. The answers lie within you . Slow down. Relax. Allow yourself to feel what is going on. Do not judge by appearances. Go very deeply into the situation instead. If you are unhappy in your new reality, notice how your dependencies and insecurities (fears) influence your mood and behavior in this very social cycle. If you receive an invitation, accept it. Or perhaps you are in a position to issue an invitation. Remember that others cannot read your mind. They cannot know what you need - or where you stand - unless you tell them. Solutions can be found through open communication in which you both express yourself and listen. It pays to be diplomatic in the cycle. In fact, if you do not choose your words carefully, you may wish you had not opened your mouth at all. If you do find yourself "blurting", treat it as an important lesson. We all have some ignorance in us - which is to ignore the reality of something or someone. This is a time to count your blessings, but guilt may tell you that it's wrong to feel gratified while others are suffering. This shows that guilt serves no constructive purpose as it dictates misery for everyone. This cycle responds to lightheartedness, optimism, creativity, and the warmth that is shared between peaceful individuals. Don't neglect important duties, but try to lighten the load if you can. This year, you are seeking a way to do what you want, where and when you want to do it, in your own style, and on your own terms; to be responsible for solving your own problems and to decline responsibilities that belong to someone else. You will have to stop judging yourself - and others. This level of free will is the key to PEACE - something you will be learning a lot about in 2004. For now, see yourself as equal to everyone else - a fellow traveler on the journey of life. This will help you to realize just how much you allow other people's judgments to stop you thinking and acting for yourself. There is no need for confrontation. Remember that life is a blend of mental, emotional, and physical energies. A balance among them must be reached in your heart. If you are intellectually inclined, if you spend too much time alone thinking and worrying, now is the time to go out and experience physical and social activity. If you hate to be alone or give little thought to the deeper meaning of life, it is time to slow down and take an inner journey. This alternative route is the first step to understanding that we are all individual parts of one magnificent connected organism. It is the key to successfully navigating your way through this slow, stay-in-the-background, low-energy year.
Personal happiness is this year's theme. And now, here you are, face to face with a major source of your unhappiness . This may not be the most charming analogy but, in a year that emphasizes life's "lighter" side, January's conditions may seem like a pimple that is about to come to a head - and you do not want to burst it prematurely. Be PATIENT! You may find yourself working very hard, physically, mentally, or emotionally as you encounter a barrier to your happiness which can no longer be ignored or tolerated. Your limits have been reached and there is no way things can stay as they are. However, do approach others in a peaceful way. Try to create an atmosphere in which everyone involved can express themselves with ease . This is a time to simplify your life - make it easier - not more complicated. This means getting organized and being practical. Selling unwanted items may help bring some order to your finances. If you feel the need to rest, take some time off - without guilt - and don't take it personally if a certain responsibility is taken off your hands. Frustration is building because so much emphasis was placed on others last year that your basic needs and desires have been sadly neglected. But it is not a matter of changing other people. A change must take place within you to which others will have to adapt. This includes changing the way you react to other people. Acceptance of your buried feelings can help you develop an optimistic frame of mind and the courage to take charge of your own life - even if the people closest to you seem to be undermining you. The real problem is that you want to please these people and your not pleasing them is making you feel guilty. Guilt turns love into resentment, and then into hatred. It prevents you from experiencing anything that feels good. Guilt tells you that feeling good is wrong. Then it contradicts itself by telling you that you were foolish for not doing what you wanted to do in the first place. There is no such a thing as healthy guilt. If your intention is to be loving, and this includes being loving to yourself, then guilt must not be allowed a place in your life. Guilt's theme song is "I'm damned if I do, and I'm damned if I don't" , and it's not a pretty tune. Self-acceptance is the only antidote to guilt and that means accepting your right to exist - which is the ultimate lesson of the 3 year cycle. The potential for happiness is all around you and you must get out of the "box" you think is trapping you and reach out for it. Ask yourself: "What will make me happy? What do I want?" Certain plans and ideas can now be put into action. January's emphasis on hard work represents the very foundation of this year's journey away from the chains of guilt and toward the joys of your own innocence . Get organized. In what now seems like a small way, start building the foundation for - actually start to create - the life you want to live. Before you can know where you're going you must know where you are.
Your life has just shifted from the light, fast, and open 3 year cycle into the slower and more down-to-earth energy of the 4 year. The circumstances of 2003 enabled you to move closer to fulfilling a particular goal. 2004 reveals the determination and hard work it takes to make a dream come true. Restlessness and confusion seem to be ruling you as you experience an ominous feeling that much is expected of you. Your freedom to move back and forth - or communicate - may be compromised. Hastiness or aggression will not make things move any faster. Effort and attention to detail are needed as delays and unexpected obstacles add to your frustration. No matter how prepared you believed you were, you are now finding that the effort involved is either greater than you thought or different to what you imagined. You are now in the complex process of building the life you want - by analyzing and redesigning your current reality. Don't be discouraged by all the work involved. If you keep the the big picture in your mind, you will know exactly what has to be done. With continued effort and belief in yourself, you can turn this month's frustration into a springboard for future success. January is a month of change . It also brings opportunity - which may be disguised as something else entirely. Look beyond what is immediately apparent and see the different potential on offer. Take it slowly and calmly. Pay attention to the details and, despite some confusing distractions, try to focus on the matter at hand. This month's unpredictable vibrations have sent you a situation through which to expand your horizons. You may find yourself in situation that is new to you - taking care of issues you have never had to deal with before. One change leads to another, and you will need to make some changes of your own so that you can successfully turn this important curve in your life's journey. This is a time of steady maneuvering. Perhaps an old but comfortable situation has changed or has become counterproductive. Face the facts, let go of the old, and welcome the new sense of grace that results from this. You need FREEDOM: not freedom from your responsibilities but, rather, the freedom to take care of them with more ease . This will occur when you start to participate in the situation instead of trying to control it. Make moderation a rule this month so that nothing can block (or blur) your vision. You have begun a new segment of your life's wondrous journey. It may not feel like the smoothest or friendliest of roads right now. But here you are anyway. Keep your eyes on the road. Keep your wits about you. Assume nothing. Be courteous to everyone. Above all, keep your desires and goals safely in your heart and know that you will bring them to fruition this year.
The 4 year is over and you are in very different territory now. No matter how things seem, you are free which, I hasten to add, is a major responsibility in itself. Of course, you are still carrying some old 4-year baggage that you simply don't have to struggle with now, and it's time to look for ways to lighten your load. Don't rush. Relax, think, and weigh up your situation. Here you are in Freedomland and you're not sure what that means or what your next move should be - and there are just so many different scenarios and options to consider. As this month proceeds, don't be afraid to make mistakes because that is how you'll find out what will work and what will not. January emphasizes the mistakes you have always made regarding responsibilities - and the extremes you can sometimes go to when it comes to fulfilling - or avoiding - certain commitments. Others have responsibilities too and these are the ones that need to leave your shoulders now. Of course, even in a state of freedom, life will always be full of challenges and problems. This year, you will be learning how to deal with them more constructively. Focus on the space in which you live and the people with whom your space is shared. Your life is going to change this year and what affects you will affect them, too. Recognize the restrictions that exist in your personal/domestic life. After the misunderstandings of 2003, you have entered a cycle which emphasizes love, family, pets, financial and physical security, material belongings, and location. The more restricted you feel, the more obviously a change is needed. You may feel restless about where you want to be, and with whom. Blaming someone else for your situation is pointless because we are each responsible for our own happiness. Know the difference between helping and interfering. Don't worry - as this year proceeds, you will find ways to free yourself. The important thing is that you have started to love yourself again and take your own needs seriously. Controlling the situation is not important now. Finding ways to change it is what matters. January provides a new direction through which your creative talents can flow and expand. Use this new perspective to further your ambitions. Be honest with yourself when you consider the mistakes you have made in the areas of family and duty. You may have to change some outdated beliefs. Give those you love a sense of inclusion in your life. Do something unusual and exciting with them. Bring fun and laughter back into a relationship and loosen that rigid attitude which belongs in the past. Love is in the air. Get into it -- or -- consider how you can best get out of a situation where love does not exist.
The 6 year is a cycle of responsibility, problem solving, and reinventing yourself. January is a cycle of analysis, introspection, planning, and wisdom. This combination often creates an initial fear of not knowing how to deal with a particular situation. But there is no need to think the worst. There is something you need to clarify inside you before you make any further judgments or moves. This month, life asks only for your presence, your attention, and your genuine intent to find a solution. Before your new direction can be seen, you may have to recognize a lifetime of misinformation that you are holding on to, particularly with regard to close relationships and family connections. Seriously analyze your situation, as it is now . Know what your responsibilities actually are. There is a lot of sorting out to do. Be patient. Trust yourself. Spend plenty of time alone, with no distractions. Minimize your activities. You need time for yourself. Listen to the questions you ask yourself, and hear the responses you give. Listen to how you argue with yourself when alternatives appear. Be aware of your resistance to change. Feel yourself resisting - fighting off - your own changing reality - and your potential for greater happiness. When you become aware of this inner battle, you will also realize that everything starts from within. Forgiving yourself for whatever you are regretting right now will enable this year's healing process to begin. The door of opportunity is knocking. Can you hear it? How can you hear it if you reject the possibility that an alternative exists? Once you have assessed what your circumstances actually are, consider your own needs and desires. How do you want things to turn out? What do you actually desire in your life? Then consider the reality of the outside world; this changing, evolving, dangerous world in which dependence is an unwise option. Then ask yourself if you are free, or are you trapped in stagnation because you have outgrown the status quo? Perhaps what you want - in the way you want it - is no longer possible. Examining all the details can lead you in a new and more satisfying direction. Notice where your old familiar ways of doing things are no longer appropriate. Take charge of your life as you travel through these confusing evolutionary times. Broaden your outlook. Accept what cannot be done and focus on what can. Work on restoring the LOVE which your anxiety now threatens to harm in some way. Guilt holds you responsible for everything that does not feel good. Never forget that guilt is the great deceiver. It may be twisting the word "responsibility" in a way that makes you feel responsible for someone else's problem. Life is now urging you to accept a responsibility lovingly and, at the same time, find a way to balance it with your own needs.
This month emphasizes finances, status, and career, and you are likely to experience a loss of enthusiasm for a particular ambition or situation. January's vibrations are pointing out to you that certain circumstances have served their purpose but are now revealing their imperfections and limited long-term potential. However, this is not a time for rash decisions or impulsive moves. Being aware of the dullness that surrounds you is sufficient for now because the solution to this is not immediately apparent. In fact, this entire year will be an exercise in self awareness and looking for the truth , rather than assuming that you already know it. You will soon understand the necessity of this 12-month cycle of deep thought and meticulous planning . Any changes that take place this month, or this year, are for the purpose of positioning you closer to your true direction - your heart's desire. You may not like where you are, but if you cannot see any other possibilities, stay there for now. On the other hand, if you believe that where you are is perfect, you may not yet have felt the greater potential stirring inside you. Give yourself time. You will feel it. This year of self-discovery has only just begun. Approach this month in an efficient and businesslike manner and be willing to learn new things, especially where career and finances are concerned. Be aware of everything that is going on around you, not only in your immediate vicinity but in the big world of economics and politics. Be aware of the instability of power and money, regardless of how vehemently others deny there is a problem. Stay clear of ideas and schemes that have outlived their effectiveness to produce an income. Be aware . As more jobs and entire industries become obsolete, it is necessary to face new truths about making a living. Throughout 2004, you will be exposed to your own talents - gifts from life that you may not even know you possess. We are not on this Earth to labor under the control of some industry or other. We are here, in this evolving creation, to evolve and create. When your gift becomes your life, your "living" will not be far behind. But don't rush. It may take this entire year to figure out how to make that happen. This month, and throughout the year, you will be exposed to today's new realities in many unexpected ways. It is up to you to follow your own Will and find your own truth, so that real satisfaction and prosperity can enter your life. The answers are unlikely to leap out at you this month, but your awareness of this new potential can evolve into solid ambition later in the year. For now, keep your everyday life going and spend as much time as you can contemplating the possibilities .
A situation which has prevented you from living the life you want to live, is coming to an end. If you are still stuck in last year's introspective frame of mind, it is time to wake up and face the reality of your present situation. Your emotions - and the emotions of those around you - may be running high. Observe and sense what is really going on. Your feelings are telling you what you really want by pointing out what is no longer available or desirable. Once you accept that something must end, alternatives will start to appear. And remember: getting what you really want is what the 8 year offers. At least one major goal can be accomplished this year, probably more. For now, however, unfinished business needs to be completed so that there are no loose ends to trip you up as the year unfolds. This month takes you backwards - so that you can define the things which are preventing you from moving forward. Recognize all the attitudes, beliefs, and situations that have kept you from feeling fulfilled. Consider those unproductive aspects which have been slowing you down; that consistent set of circumstances which always seem to end in disappointment, no matter how much effort you put into it. Your WILL is waking up now and is expressing itself through those intense feelings you're having this month - especially those rich feelings of self-appreciation you had forgotten you were able to feel. Once you have made a decision which is not derived from guilt or blame, your self-esteem will be raised to the level needed to fulfill your needs, and others will give you their support. Endings must now be made in a way that will allow you to walk away from a certain situation without regret. Be patient, tolerant, open minded, forgiving, compassionate, and optimistic. Above all, accept and enjoy the feeling that is urging you to believe in yourself as your Will starts to feel freer. Situations may arise which test your patience and tolerance. Their purpose is to show you that you do have a choice: you can remain dependent on others for your fulfillment, or you can take full responsibility for your life by developing a strong intent to fulfill a specific goal. If you choose the latter, you will have to focus on whatever your goal happens to be. This cycle will also teach you a lot about giving - and that giving and receiving are equal parts of the same process, as one cannot be achieved without the other. There are so many ways to give: your time; support; money; service; understanding; sympathy; creativity; etc. But giving out is not the only way to give. Sometimes giving involves giving in, giving way, or even giving up. You will give something, this month. Just remember that in order to give, you must first let go .
It is difficult to live successfully and independently when so many aspects of your life are dependent on so many outside factors. This cycle urges you to 'be yourself'. Then it asks you: "How can you be yourself when such a large part of you is lost somewhere in the past"? It emphasizes the pleasures of material attainment - and also makes it clear that materiality alone cannot bring happiness. It says "Hold on" one minute and "Let go" the next. Ultimately, this cycle is urging you to stop blindly pushing yourself forward and go back into the past instead, where you will be able to understand where your previous actions and beliefs have LED you. Here you are standing alone in the world to face your own reality, make your own decisions, and do whatever needs to be done to create a reality that you truly desire. You know that something has to end but you're afraid to know what the outcome will be. First, an important change must take place in your understanding of both independence and the power of the individual. January represents the beginning of a year of endings. The new evolves out of the old but, by refusing to accept the emotional reality of your past, the old has no choice but to repeat itself - and you don't want that. Your feelings must be allowed to move in all directions; forward, backward, to and fro, so that you can recognize the old unexpressed emotions that are still trapped inside you. Visualize your life with a past, a present, and a future. Notice how your past has created your present and how the future you desire can be created out of your present circumstances. You know you are entering a new phase of your life and yet you may experience great frustration - and fear of failure - while this transitory and temporary period plays itself out. It's as if you're waiting in the wings and are afraid you've missed your cue. You are living in both the "letting go" cycle of your past, and the "learning the ropes" cycle of your future. You have no idea what to expect from the people involved in either cycle and they, too, have no idea what to expect from you. Try to be as gracious and patient as possible, and don't blame yourself or others for this month's inevitable changes and delays, many of which are due to events taking place on the world stage. You are now dealing with the realities of the world - and your own lifetime - and there is a lot of ground to cover. No matter how many different circumstances arise for you this year, they all represent one experience only - the experience of releasing yourself from the past. Of course, life will go on, and you will be moving forward each time to let a piece of the past go. Be determined - but allow things to unfold naturally - as you GO BACK to claim your future.
