Leap into February

    The coming month is filled with notable days: Chinese New year; Mardi Gras; Ash Wednesday; Valentine's Day and in the US the 15th marks President's Day.
    February 2nd is the midway point between the winter solstice and the Spring Equinox. It is celebrated as Imbolc: a word that has roots in several areas. Imbolc can be  pronounced IMbowc with an ow sound like cow, or as i-MOLG.
    In the Gaelic world, February 2nd is Brigid's Day, a festival connected to the new growth of Spring, now often called Saint Brigid's Day.  
    In Christianity this is Candlemas, a day marked almost exclusively in Roman Catholic, Anglican and Greek Orthodox congregations. 40 days after Christmas, observances focus on the blessing and purifying of Mary, Mother of Jesus.
    No doubt the media will remind us of Groundhog Day, and Leap Day, on the 29th, might gain some attention.
    2016 holds a frequency of Nine*, which is with everyone, every day. February, as the second month, adds a Two which remains dominant. (9 + 2 = 11, and 1 + 1 = 2)
    Two resonates deeply in the area of relationships and personal communities.
Personal Years
 To calculate the Number for your Personal Year, see the examples below.
       I am in a Four Personal Year; February will bring me duties and responsibilities, the chance to re-examine some of my relationships, and be practical about the roles that I perform, and which others fulfil in my life.
    If you are in a Five Personal Year, February will offer you opportunities for growth, especially in alliances with the people in your days: colleagues and friends just as much as members of your household.
    In a Six Personal Year, February will move you forward into the full flow of life, unblocking energies that have felt stale in January. During the next four weeks balance will be somewhat restored: your efforts will be rewarded.
      If 2016 is your Seven Personal Year, February will support you in tying up loose ends and releasing those niggling, unfinished tasks that can fuel further procrastination. This month, Just Do It and you will feel much, much better.
    An Eight Personal Year becomes fully realized in February. This is the month to embrace your dreams: plan for major success this year. Use the month's supportive initiation energy to plant seeds which will deliver blossoms before year's end.
    February in a Nine Personal Year is focused on people. Valentine's Day is a reminder to nurture people who love and accept you, and to release any who are detrimental. Be loving with the face in the mirror.
    In a One Personal Year the coming month will bring surprises. You are a portal through which the Universe enters the physical world. February will find you filled with inspiration and everyone will benefit when you share your ideas.
    Two Personal Years ask for some follow-through in February. Projects, even friendships, that started in January can be cemented now. The teacher Jo Barnes says “Get it done, and then get it right.” Waiting for perfection is futile.
    If you have begun a Three Personal Year, February might shake up your preconceived ideas about the year. New opportunities will stretch you, maybe even require you to travel or move. Soul-growth is offered.The choice is entirely yours.
    Whichever Personal Year number is with you this year, February will put new and different people in your path and require that you examine your responses.
Why do you like or love this individual?
Why do you feel impatient when that person speaks?
What is the anger you feel towards someone else?
    When we engage with our Numbers, every moment is a chance to learn about ourselves and grow into our fullest selves.
*2 + 0 + 1 + 6 = 9

*** To calculate your Personal Year Number for 2016: Add the number of the Day you were born, to the number of the month you were born, and then add Eight.
Keep adding until you have only one digit.
For example: my birthday is 28 March, so I add 2+8 = 10, and 1+0 = 1 +3 for March = 4 + 9 for 2016 totals 13. 1+3 = 4, my Personal Year number for 2016

If you were born on the 27 February, you would add 9+2+9= [20, 2+0=20] Two Personal Year for 2016
26 April 8+4+9= Three
25 October 7+1+9 = Eight
and so on.
