Welcome to 2018! With the New Year in full swing, it can be super helpful to create a theme for your year to manifest perfect opportunities to you.
Many people create a theme that they resonate too, without checking in with the numerology of the year, but I love numerology because it helps us navigate our bigger purpose. It connects us back to the cycles of nature and the universe, which helps anchor our theme into reality a bit better.
So let’s get started in figuring out what 2018 has in store for you!
You’ll be working with both your Personal Year number and the Collective Year number. For every year, you have both energies operating. Both numbers represent the major cycles and what your soul wants you to focus on.
First, start by calculating the Collective Year, which represents the things this year that the collective of humanity will be working with and learning about. This is the overarching energy for the year.
The Collective Year = present year reduced to a single number [2 + 0 + 1 + 8] = 2
Then read about the 2 year at the bottom of this article.
Next, figure out your Personal Year. This number represents the types of things that will be most lucrative to focus on and the easiest to implement.
Your Personal Year = (month + day of your birth) + present year reduced to a single number.
Example:  + [1+0] + [2 + 0 + 1 + 8] = 22 = 4
Then read about your personal year number below and learn about the most profitable activities you can do this year.
Once you have an understanding of the year for you, next come up with a theme or affirmation for your year that is the way you’d like to work with your personal and collective year energies.
Pick something that’s easy to remember and say to yourself throughout the year.
Here are some examples of year themes:
The theme you choose creates a container for your year and helps draw to you the experiences and tools you need to make the most out of it.
Once you have your theme, write it down so you can see it daily. Use it like a mantra you repeat to yourself during your day.
Other ways to work with your theme:
Get a journal and write it on the front cover.
Journal about your theme weekly and any new realizations that have come to you around your theme.
Create a dream board around your theme.
Make an altar with your theme.
Meditate with your theme.
And most of all, enjoy the abundance of time that the new year brings to us! You have the next 365 days at your fingertips!
