As the end of the year edges closer, many of us are taking stock of our lives now. It's all too easy to focus on everything you lack, but how often do you really stop to consider all that you do have in your life? In the U.S., November brings the Thanksgiving holiday, reminding us to pause for a moment and be grateful for what and who we have.
Your personal Sun Number is used to calculate your Personal Month cycles, and those cycles predict the type of life you'll lead each month. If you don't already know your Sun Number, click here to find out. Once you know your Sun Number, look it up below to read your predictions for the month ahead.
Sun Number 1
November 2016 is a 3 Personal Month in a 1 Personal Year for those with a Sun Number 1. It is an excellent time to inspire and motivate others. Your enthusiasm is contagious and no obstacle is too great to overcome. You have little patience this month and would like everything to go much faster. Your mind is running at Mach speed, but may scatter your energies. You will be all too willing to cut corners to avoid effort or details, which may result in a frustrating and over-worked December. Be disciplined and follow projects through to completion.
Ideas come popping out of you now. Your creativity seems to burst in all directions. The trick is in differentiating between iron balloons and those that truly float. The opposite sex is attracted to you and temptation is part of the game, but there is the danger of irresponsible behavior, so be careful.
Sun Number 2
For those with a Sun Number 2, November 2016 is a 4 Personal Month in a 2 Personal Year. It's definitely time to get down to business, to focus on work, and finish anything that's been left undone. Pay attention to the details; don't procrastinate and don't cut corners. Get the picture? You are laying a foundation for the future now, proving to yourself and others that you are worthy of the responsibilities and challenges you have taken on. Your energy is strong and focused. You can concentrate even when work becomes routine and boring.
You are in a crucial stage in your life now, but you've got the energy and a take-no-prisoners attitude that will lead you to success. The best way to balance such determination is to get in touch with nature: take a walk in the woods, sit at the edge of the lake, feel the earth and your connection with it. If you have recently become involved in a romance, this month should bring commitment and stability to the relationship.
Sun Number 3
For those with a Sun Number 3, November 2016 is your second 5 Personal Month in this 3 Personal Year. As before, this month brings change, excitement and possibly a financial boost. The 5 brings movement -- travel, a change of residence or office, perhaps. You will likely receive a letter or phone call from someone close to you whom you haven't heard from in some time. This month should be light and playful, so try not to take things too seriously.
The downside of this number combination (5 and 3) is in the area of relationships. You may have a tendency to misread others and to be a little insensitive or tactless. Do all you can to avoid confrontations in personal matters, as well as those related to work. As long as you are upbeat and supportive, friendship and social events are favorable. As was the case with February of this year, November may find you in the mood to indulge yourself. Moderation may be hard to maintain, but it's still the best advice.
Sun Number 4
November 2016 is a 6 Personal Month in a 4 Personal Year for those with a Sun Number 4. It offers the chance to strengthen your foundation in life. You pay closer attention to the needs of your family and circle of friends now. You are serious and responsible in all matters related to career, and receive recognition and respect for that. Financially, this could be a good month with an unexpected reward coming some time during the last week.
In many ways, this month brings blessings and can be very satisfying. Your workload is considerable, but doesn't burden you as much as it did during other times of this year. You have the energy and feel confident that you are now moving in the right direction. Feelings of insecurity and frustration that loomed so prominently during most of this year are disappearing. Your friends and family members display strong signs of loyalty and feelings are expressed more freely. One or more of your friends or relatives needs a boost and comes to you for help. You are happy with the opportunity to help out in a practical way as well as with moral support. You play the role of matriarch/patriarch.
The only troubling experience during this month will be the need to deal diplomatically and tactfully with a long-standing problem, perhaps with someone at work. A basic personality conflict has been the cause of friction between you and a co-worker, and this can no longer be ignored. Tension will come to a head, but there is an opportunity to turn a difficult relationship into one of tolerance and mutual respect.
Sun Number 5
For those with a Sun Number 5, November 2016 is a 7 Personal Month in a 5 Personal Year, directing the focus to your inner self. Some people experience this month as loneliness, but it doesn't have to be. You will be inspired to refine your understanding of your place in the universe.
Spiritual growth will be of primary interest to you now, so spend time considering what you are going to do with the rest of your life. Search your soul, define your priorities and plan your future. Study and read and think. You are observant and insightful now. Put romance, career, and financial matters on the back burner this month -- there will be plenty of time for that later. If you direct all your effort toward honest self-confrontation, your future progress will be insured.
Sun Number 6
November 2016 is an 8 Personal Month in a 6 Personal Year for those with a Sun Number 6. This is an excellent time for business ventures, financial affairs, and all things related to the material world. You receive recognition for past effort in the form of financial rewards, respect and possibly a promotion. Implement any changes you have been considering in your business affairs.
As always, when the 8 shows up in the chart, a certain amount of balance takes place, so punishment and reward are both possible. If you have put out sincere effort, the reward will be there. However, for some people, this month may bring bad news. This is a good time to straighten out financial dealings you may have with friends or relatives as well. This is not a good time to go into debt, but it is actually a good time for love. Strong feelings and passionate exchanges on the emotional and physical level make this an exciting month.
Sun Number 7
For those with a Sun Number 7, November 2016 is a 9 Personal Month in an 8 Personal Year. Your heightened awareness and the long inner-growth process you've been working on this year now reach a kind of completion, in the form of realizations and insights that improve your self-confidence and faith in the future. At the same time, this is a period marked by emotional ups and downs as you are releasing old concepts, responsibilities, and relationships that you've outgrown. You are doing some inner house cleaning, reflected in work as well as your personal life.
Your career may seem somewhat stagnant now. You're looking for new opportunities and challenges, but not much will be forthcoming until late this month or early next month. You should take it slowly, perhaps even take some time off for rest. There will be an opportunity for you to become involved with a good cause, which will prove both personally and professionally rewarding. In the long run, it may even help you financially. As for money matters, this is not a good time to take chances or spend money on major purchases.
Some of your relationships with friends and relatives are being put to the test now. You have grown and changed over the past year and may be a little out of touch with some of the people with whom you were close. In addition, you have become more discriminating about whom you wish to spend time with.
Sometimes, the 9 Personal Month brings a personal loss. You may have to let go of an old relationship or even someone you regard as a teacher. Romance is also in a make-or-break period. If the relationship has real substance, there will be some emotional turmoil but the bond will only become stronger. If the relationship isn't strong, this will become very clear and cause a permanent break.
Sun Number 8
November 2016 is a 1 Personal Month in an 8 Personal Year for those with a Sun Number 8. It brings confidence, independence and individuality. Now, you are driven to take up new challenges, tackle new projects and get a firm grip on your life. You have energy to spare and you use this to inspire and motivate others. You feel that there is nothing you can't deal with. You are ambitious and results-oriented. You receive an opportunity that will have long-ranging effects on your life. You are confident, but also a bit stubborn and hardheaded. You are direct and not as sensitive to other people's feelings as usual now.
This month is a good time for business and finances. It is a time to be decisive and adventurous, not a time to be conservative. Courage and originality are key ingredients needed to take full advantage of this cycle. You are more stable and outgoing in your personal life, much to the delight of friends and relatives. You are also generous and inspiring, but not in the mood to deal with the petty stuff. You are a little impatient now.
Romance may prove to be the most challenging aspect of this period. The chances of meeting someone are good, but your approach may be too aggressive and lacking in sensitivity. If you are married or otherwise committed, a small warning: not everyone is on the high curve of his/her cycle, so be patient.
Sun Number 9
For those with a Sun Number 9, November 2016 is a 2 Personal Month in a 9 Personal Year. You may find yourself wondering what happened to last month's energy. You feel a little burned out and you are not sure about the direction your life has been taking in the past several months. You may question whether you are trying to change too much of your life. You are moodier than usual and don't seem to be able to get things started. You are extremely sensitive and take the opinions of others more serious than usual.
This is a time to take things slowly, to spend time in self-reflection and contemplation, to find strength and stability in yourself instead of in the circumstances around you. Your relationship to the people close to you improves and a lot of healing takes place there. Romance also is highly favorable, particularly if you do not try to make the impression that you are stronger than you really are. You are more susceptible to illness this month, and would do well to refrain from alcohol or anything else that weakens your system.
