The key words for this year are:
New beginnings, initiatives, decisions and individuality
This year is a time for new beginnings, and you may see this reflected in any or every area of your life; health, career or within relationships. Perhaps life offers you a complete change, with the chance to walk down a new path, or purposefully head off in a different direction. This year your attitude towards life can radically shift so that everything appears new and fresh. In a 1 year, you may feel inexplicably excited. This is because a new nine-year cycle lies ahead and you are right at the beginning. A new haircut, an exciting new job or promotion, a new relationship, new commitments, a new home or a brand-new health regime – anything is possible.
In order to make the most of these new opportunities, there might be a period of decay where situations seem to break down and get worse for a while; this is a ‘healing crisis’ where all the muck needs to come out in order to clear the spot, so you can be left glowing and healthier. Endurance is needed.
Perhaps you may also experience a temporary loss of direction, as your subconscious is processing where and what you need to do next. During this period you may feel particularly influenced to follow others in their direction, particularly if they are strong characters, but be very honest with yourself about your needs before you take any action. For example, perhaps your partner wants you both to move house immediately, but you don’t, so you need to speak up and, if appropriate, arrive at a happy compromise.
There is a saying, ‘he who dares wins’, and this year putting yourself out there and getting more deeply involved with life may be both fruitful and fulfilling. Complacency may set in if you set unrealistic goals which, like New Year’s resolutions, suddenly fly out of the window with the first breeze. A positive mind will help you glide through any challenges that stop you attaining your goals, and it will probably be you who create major obstacles in the way of your success during this cycle.
A Number 1 Personal Year may see you working with issues around your independence; whether this is financial or material, or wanting emotional detachment, you are likely to find out. Perhaps you are too fiercely independent already and need to learn to reach out and join in with a partner, family or friends. However, the 1 is asking you to step forward on your own and for yourself, so that you can grow stronger and be strong for others.
There may be issues around self-worth this year, and embarking upon a personal development course, consulting a life coach or reading self-help books may give you some guidance about how to resolve these. It’s a great time for intellectual development,
and you may also be drawn to discover more about matters of the mind and soul.
