As the first month of the year, January is typically when we desire to start new but this year is particularly oozing with fresh start energy. 2014 is a 7 year, the number of truth and authenticity. It will be a big year of stepping into our personal power and owning who we truly are.
The relationship challenges that plagued many of us for most of last year will start to see resolution as the situations are put under the microscope of truth. We’ve got the urge to get raw and real with things. It’s time to face it head on and be honest with ourselves about what we want and don’t want. A side effect of living in the flow of truth is that we can no longer tolerate anything that doesn’t resonate with us. There is a natural inclination to move away from the people, places and things that don’t feel authentic.
This is the year to be YOU on all levels. We’re under a double whammy, physical energy as well with 1 (January) being the first physical number governing communication and 7 (global year number) as the most active number on the physical plane. Many of us will hit the ground running in 2014 and globally, we’ll start to see the wheels of progress turning again. With the theme of truth underlying our actions this year, solutions to some of the world’s crisis situations (like the financial crisis) will become apparent. Plus, they’ll be lots of active “doing” energy floating around to get the job done.
Calculating Your Number:
Before we get to the individual monthly forecasts, you’ll need to calculate your Life Theme Number which is your main energetic essence in this lifetime. Your date of birth is like spiritual DNA and can reveal who you are, what you’re here to do and how to do it.
To calculate your Life Theme Number, add together each individual digit in your date of birth and then reduce to a single digit, like this:
This date of birth has a Life Theme Number of 7. Follow the same steps to calculate your own essence.
**Note: If the sum equates to 10, 11, 22 or 33, stop there. Don’t reduce these numbers further as they are called the Master Numbers and should be displayed in their unreduced form. They are guiding frequencies which carry a greater responsibility to mankind in terms of their life purpose.

Individual Life Theme Number Forecast for January:
2: As the most sensitive number, you’re really feeling the rush of the raw and real truth energy of 2014 coupled with the new beginnings vibe of January. The challenge is that you’ll be hesitant for the first half of the month to take outer action even though you want to. You take a bit longer to warm up to an overabundance of physical “doing” energy because your nature is emotional or soulful based. You’ll be focused on cleaning up the relationship challenges first, then moving on to more of a career-focused mode the second half of the month. Although not your normal approach, you’ll be very strategic this month in both your thinking and actions. You’ll make a lot of headway in terms of clearing out the old. You’re going to be making your list and ticking it off swiftly and efficiently. Expect to wipe the slate clean to start a new plan of action.
3: Whenever there’s an abundance of physical energy the 3 gets antsy and impatient, wanting to bring through all their great ideas as the number of imagination and inspiration. If you can imagine a talkative person speaking a mile a minute, that’s what the brain of a 3 looks like when there’s a physical gateway to challenge their thoughts. The great thing about being a 3 is that you’re the outgoing, social butterfly mind plane number who usually isn’t afraid to express and implement their ideas. You’ll be in high demand this month in both personal and professional situations. You’re the go-to person because the energy of the month is pushing others to seek out solutions to ongoing challenges. Who better than the intelligent 3? Relationships are off the radar for the most part until next month since the focus will be on idea generation and implementation for the 3 in January.
4: You’re the missing element to complete the physical plane energies this month. 1, 4 and 7 are the physical numbers and we have January with its 1 energy and the global year is a 7. As the “doer”, you’re really feeling restless and want to get going after spending December in more of a consolidation mode. January is going to bring a huge restructuring and rebuilding of your foundation. A 180 degree shift in direction on many levels but you’re ready and it’s time. You know just what you want and you’re ready to create it. The 4 isn’t afraid of hard work although impatience can be a hindrance at times. With all three physical plane energies highlighted, it’s all about outer action for you this month. You’ll end January feeling satisfied with how much you’ve accomplished. There is a big highlight on shifting out old relationship connections which no longer serve you. Career wise, you’re on a roll in terms of bringing your vision to life. You’re unstoppable physical “action” energy right now.
5: As the freedom of expression number, the 5 starts to flap its wings as soon as there is a strong infusion of physical energy in the air. This year, the 5’s will get off to a running start, spreading their wings to fly. As the middle feeling number, it’s not necessarily your nature to leap before thinking (or feeling) but this month you’re bursting with giddy-up juice. You’ve been feeling the buildup of momentum for the past couple of weeks as the old year’s energy started to fade out, being replaced by the high velocity physical charge. The 5 is the “career” number and you’ll be really hyper-focused on career in January with a one-track mind. Relationships won’t really even be on the radar until February because you’re in love with life right now on other levels. You’ll be the inspirationalist this month for others in your life because your enthusiasm and go-getter attitude are contagious. Health-wise, you’ll never have felt better – you’re alive with life.
6: You’re the idea generator as the number of creativity and creative expression but when that creative juice has a strong physical outlet, you’re an unstoppable creative genius. You’re the leader of the pack or the “delegator” this month as others will look to you for guidance and direction, putting your visionary skills to good use this January. Sometimes you can be the worry-wart, over-thinking and over-analyzing everything but not this month. You’ve got everything under control and you know which direction you’re headed (and can pinpoint it for others too). You’re strong, steadfast and charging ahead with your master plans. In this month of “new beginnings” you’re implementing everything you’ve been mulling over the past several months – the timing feels just right and you’re sure of it. The relationship challenges you’ve faced in 2013 are have mostly been resolved and the remainder are being shelved for the moment because it’s all about you for the next several weeks. That’s a switch from your nurturing nature but if we can’t take care of ourselves, we’re not able to be the best we can be for others in our lives. Utilize the air of confidence and assuredness that is coming from the surge of grounded physical energy to do what is right for you right now.
7: You’re feeling comfortably at home in all this physical energy. You’re on your game, big time! The 7 has two distinct (and often polar opposite) sides – the physical side “leap before thinking” side and the deep, philosophical thinking side. January 2014 is all about getting it done on a physical level but it’s never been easier for you than it is right now. For those 7’s that have had their fair share of hindsight learning, it’s not about that this month. The global year’s energy of the 7 matching your own creates a super-charged truth-finding magnet so you’ll be attracting only what you want right now. Instead of your usual “live and learn” method of gaining personal experience you have an uncanny ability to navigate life with expert precision for the next several weeks. It’s as though you can’t make a mistake and you know it. Every area of your life will see a smoothness that has been lacking for most of 2013. So what are you waiting for? Leap little 7, leap!
8: If there’s one thing an 8 could be known for, it’s confident energy (whether they feel it consciously or not). Under the influence of an abundance of physical energy, the 8 is stepping forward without hesitation this January. With a phenomenal mind for business and structure, the 8 is building foundation this month, steering the helm with the precision of a seasoned sailor in the realm of career. On the relationship front, you’ve got a no-bull attitude and the things you put up with for the latter part of 2013, you can no longer tolerate. It’s time for you to break free from those connections that no longer serve you. Of all the Life Theme numbers, you’re turning over a new leaf in the biggest way this year. You’re determined and stepping into the natural wise one you were born to be. A key element this month is that you’ll want to shed things on all levels in a massive way (literally and figuratively). Don’t hold back because you’re clearing the runway to bring in the new. It’s all about transformation right now.
9: With the huge helping of physical energy enveloping you this month, it might have you starting the year feeling a little apprehensive and uncertain and but by the end of January, you’ll be back to your big dreamer self. As the most active mental number, you’re often strategic and methodical in your thinking patterns (black/white, right/wrong thinking). However, the action-seeking 1 energy of January combined with the most active “leap before thinking” physical number 7 (global year energy) has you putting on the brakes initially. 9’s frequently need to work into high change energy by first using it to make a plan of action from a mental perspective. Once they do that, it’s game on. Expect to be the observer for at least the first few weeks of the New Year, taking in all the whirlwind change energy, utilizing it to formulate your master plan. After it’s complete, you’ll be more than ready to roll it out.
10/1: Like the 7, the 10 has a dualistic side with one end being very physical (1) while the other spiritual (0). In their younger years, the 10 tends to gravitate toward the more physical side of life while the more mature 10 steps into the mentoring “Earth Guide” energy that is their true nature (combining the energies of heaven and earth with 1 and zero). This year, particularly from the start of the New Year until the end of spring, you’ll be in full mentoring mode. It is as though the 10 is being called to their post this January and you can feel the call in a huge way. Many of us are charged up but the physical pulse of both the new beginnings number 1 month and global year carrying the “doing” energy of the most active physical number 7. The trouble is, a good number of us are struggling with how to exactly use all this action energy. That’s where the mentoring 10 steps in to lead us through casual conversation. The 10’s are the old souls this month, giving advice and guidance wherever they go. Interestingly enough, as the first physical number, you won’t see much outer action this month (at least for the first 2 weeks of the month). Your time will be spent doling out your wisdom to even random strangers like the cashier who spills their life story to you in out of the blue. You’re in your element verbally helping others because you love to share what you know. It’s your makeup and you’ll feel content even if there’s no big action for you just yet. It’s all about communication for you this month and that goes for relationships. You’ll make some headway this month on those relationship challenges that seemed to be at a standstill. Health-wise, be careful to eat lots of greens for the next several weeks because your energy will be challenged with so much mentoring going on. You’ll pick up a great deal of energetic debris from others so you need to keep your energy light and airy. Typically, the recommendation is to eat grounding foods but for the 10 who likes to keep life “light and fun”, it’s crucial for you to eat light to keep your energy fresh and unhindered.
11/2: The 11/2 will get a slow start with the physical energy this month but that’s ok. You’re right where you need to be. Your hard work in the area of self-reflection during the latter part of 2013 will be coming to completion as you bring things together in your head and heart. It will be a quiet couple of weeks during the first part of January and you may feel like you’re the tortoise in the Tortoise and the Hair. You’re natural inclination is to be the self-reflective spiritual guide so don’t feel bad that you’re not in full-on active mode like many of the other Life Theme Numbers. You deal with things from the inside out but once you figure it out, you’re a creative force that can manifest pretty much anything you desire. Knowing this, you can understand how important your quiet time is to both yourself and those around you. It’s been a rough six months for the 11/2 and this is your time to take a breath before you take your next steps. If you’re feeling the need to retreat still, respect that and go with it. It won’t be long before you’re back in the saddle and you’ll be glad you took the time to pull things together on the unseen level first.
22/4: Building foundation is your central focus this month. You’ve felt anything but grounded for the most part of 2013 and it’s a great feeling to be regaining your sense of stability. Although you’ve been lacking a feeling of solidity, your strong intuitive nature knows it was meant to be that way to allow you to work through some of the restructuring and reorganizing that was necessary in 2013. The arena of relationships was a central focus for you last year but not so much this year. It’s time to pick up the pieces but in a positive way. The dust has settled and you know where you stand. It’s up to you to use your strength of intuition to move forward in the right direction. Career won’t be a highlight until matters of the heart are fully resolved by the end of February. March and April will be the start of your ‘action” months. January is a pivotal month for you to lay the bricks to build your next phase in a brand new way.
33/6: All this physical energy has you feeling a bit jittery but excited at the same time. Your apprehension should subside by the end of the second week of January when you’ll be flying high, seeing clearly through your eagle’s eye view as the visionary 6. There is a bit of a “selfish” energy in the air for most of the Life Theme Numbers this month and you’re no different. It’s a vibe that wants you to care for you as a means to prepare you for the physical based action year ahead. Your motherly nurturing mode will be in full swing over the next several weeks, both for yourself and others. Take time for long baths and walks alone to contemplate. Don’t feel guilty about taking plenty of time to bask in your own energy. It’s important at the moment for you to take this time. You tend to take care of everyone else but yourself and your well is running dry. You’ll never survive this very physical based year upcoming without a recharge month. January is your month to recharge and use your visionary skills to map out your blueprint for the year. The rocky relationship situation is coming to an end and the last relationship challenge to resolve or (at least come to terms with) is the one you have with yourself. Lay low with lots of quiet, still time until closer to February. The theme of January 2014 for you is “Self-Nurture”.
