Ask Greer: A friend of mine just opened a new business…and when I did her numbers for 2013…they came out to a 9 (nine). It kind of surprised me. It’s such a new beginning for her…my amateur-self (in analyzing numerology patterns) expected to see another number, like a 1 (one). I just wanted to check with the expert and get your opinion/thoughts on that. — Andie
Greer: Let’s first discuss how to find out what personal year you are in*. The number changes every year when the date changes. You add the sum of your birthday month and day to the current year and then reduce the number. Example, if someone was born April 8, they would be in a nine (9) year in 2013. 4+8+2+0+1+3=18/9. *Read more about the personal year.
The Power of Nine
The nine year is a year of transformation, completion and transition, and often stirs the pot, so to speak, towards a new beginning. It can also be a year of publishing. The power of nine is all about change, or at least experiencing the many options of life and all its possibilities. I remember in my 9 year I was so close to leaving my job, so close to moving towards a new life, and dealing with all the fears and confusion in the way.
The nine year often feels like a whirlwind and very powerful. Sometimes people from the past reenter to remind you of your lessons in life. Often familiar old habits or emotions resurface to become our teachers in order to discover what we can let go of, rebirth, or start a new chapter.
Nine is also connected to the zero, that hallway that has so many doors and you do not know which one to open, but you know that you are in the hallway and not where you used to be. Thus, the nine is potential and embracing all the possibilities in life.
So yes, it makes sense to open a new business in the 9 year and it will probably really come into a lucrative form in the one (1) year. In my one year I finally quit my job, but the 9 year involved all the stirring of it. When a business begins in a nine year it is part of the transformation of the person, but it usually is a time of getting the kinks out and the real work begins in the next year.
My sister got married in a nine year. it was certainly a year of transformation for her.
Are you in a nine year? Please tell us about it.
