Get Set To Declutter In 2016

Many at this time, are contemplating what to expect in the new year. Some who had been through a rough ride in the past year are hoping for a better year ahead.  Some who had experienced a productive year in 2015 are hoping that their luck would never run out.  However, I do not believe in luck and as a spiritualist, my beliefs are that you are a master of your own destiny because you can shape your own outcomes by the decisions you make and the perspectives you hold.

So what's in store for 2016? What are your aspirations for the coming new year and how are you empowering them?   Numerology is just one of the metaphysical modalities that can help guide one's decisions made throughout the year by harnessing the numerological energies of that year.  In 2015 the year was governed by the number 8 in numerology.  You can determine the year's numerological energy by adding the digits of the year.  So in 2015,  by adding each number of the year,  2+0+1+5, you will get the number 8.  

Looking Back At 2015

For many who had harnessed the energy of the number 8 well in 2015, it was a year of executive power, ambition, opportunities, and abundance, particularly when you were able to harness the right resources to create your own opportunities.  If you had experienced  a busier year with your business or at work, an expanded role within the same job, or you had left your current job for a bigger and better one, that's just some of the hallmarks of how the 8 energy is supporting you in e last year. The 8 energy might have inspired you to make astute financial plans and leverage the  right financial opportunities. The number fanned the flames of bold decision-making based on good judgement, confidence and the determination to attain your goals.  Finally, the number 8 would force you to leave all negative aspects of your past so that you could be ready to tread on a journey of self -discovery, embrace new growth and approach every challenge with a can-do attitude.  

2015 Tarot Year Card - Strength

In tandem with the numerological 8 influence, the Tarot year card for 2015 was the Strength card, which is the 8th card in the Major Arcana of the Tarot deck.  Strength in Tarot was an important reminder to us of the power of human will, determination and the tenacity of the inner spirit.  If you had  harnessed the traits of this card as you managed the year 2015,  you would have been able to better deal with challenges and attain your goals through  the more effective use of soft persuasion instead of  brute force and aggressive confrontation.

Looking Forward To 2016

So what then is the numerological energy that will impact 2016?  2016 is governed numerologically by the number 9.  With 9 being the final number in the 9-year cycle in numerology, the number represents a culmination of all your hard work put into attaining your goals, your experiences and skills cultivated throughout all these years, the lessons you had picked up along the way, the knowledge gained, and the wisdom attained.  

Whatever you had worked hard to achieve, and all the loose ends of any long-drawn project that you had been working on will need to be completed in this year.  Everything that you needed to do on your priority list, must be done.

Being a year of completion, it is the year you let go of whatever does not serve your higher purpose. If you had been in toxic relationships or unhappy jobs hanging on a thread for so long, this is the year to let go and start anew.   Don't expect it to be easy though because as you make that final push through the journey in anticipation of a numerological year 1 in 2017, you can expect to experience some stress, tension and conflict.  If you struggle to let go of what does not serve you, it could be a painful year filled with anxieties.  You might feel some exhaustion and perhaps be unfocused. That is why you are encouraged to keep an open mind and heart in 2016, and just be focused on healing, forgiveness,  re-energising and renewing yourself through contemplation and meditation.  Self care is so important, so remember to honour your energies and ensure that you take time out to care for yourself and keep a happy harmonious balance between the time and energy you invest in others and the time and energy you invest in yourself.

The numerological energy of a year 9 encourages you to "spring clean" your work space, your home, your Facebook Friend list, and even yourself. This is not the year to harbour any residual emotional resentment against those who had done you wrong in the past. Empty your heart off grudges and keep it clean from hurt, disappointments and unfulfilled expectations.  De-cluttering will help pave the way for  you to accept new experiences in the following year.

9 is also a number that inspires giving to humanity and supporting the community at large.  So in 2016, think about what you can do for your community, how can you add value to your community and how can you be of service that will benefit the greater good of people around you?

2016 Tarot Year Card - Hermit

In tandem with the numerological 9 influence in 2016, the tarot year card for the year is the Hermit, the ninth card in the Major Arcana in Tarot. The image on the Hermit card often depicts a cloaked man standing on top of a mountain holding a lamp.  The mountain represents the pinnacle of his achievement and growth.  The hermit has attained all that knowledge through his journey and is ready to light the path of everyone else by sharing his knowledge.   The Hermit encourages you to tap into your inner consciousness to reevaluate your goals, reassess your path towards it and make adjustments if you need to do so.  The card encourages you to find your inner light within you and use it to shine the path of others around you.  From your space of experience, skills and knowledge that you have attained, share your gifts with the world and support others with compassion and generosity.  If you need to spend some time in solitude, honour that need to have that space so that you can listen to your inner wisdom.

2016 urges you to think before you act. Leverage the lessons from the past year to approach the year ahead. Forgive those who have hurt or disappointed you. Don't take unnecessary risks unless you have evaluated all angles of an opportunity. Let go of anything that no longer serves you positively. Spend more time on your own to heal, recharge and renew.  Expect some stress and tension but it is not insurmountable if you manage it all with openness to differences and give it enough deliberation time. Finally, approach everything and everyone win a sense of compassion and generosity of spirit.
