In Numerology, May 2020 is a 9 Universal Month (5 + 2 + 0 + 2 + 0 = 9).
Coming at the end of the cycle, the 9 brings the energy of wisdom, integration, and completion.
As the summer approaches in the Northern hemisphere, and winter beckons in the South, the shift in seasons also brings an internal shift for each of us.
It's time to ask yourself: What needs to be released?
For many long months, we have been building, creating, and learning, and now we've reached the pinnacle! May 2020 comprises the very last 31 days in the entire numerical cycle so it's a pivotal time for the collective. Yet it can be all too easy to rush through this month too quickly. The promise of fresh starts and new beginnings, brought by the number 1, lie just around the corner, and the future is oh so tempting! But we urge you to stay here for just a while.
Cast your gaze back to the start of the year, when we hurtled midway into this cycle.
What were your new year intentions?
What have you created in the time since?
And what have you carried with you all this way, that no longer needs to be part of your journey?
The collective energy of this month's Numerology is all about release, so it's time to lovingly let those things go.
Maybe it's a person that you're still attached to?
A work project that finally needs to be completed or handed over?
Or maybe it's a belief or a pattern of behavior that's keeping you stuck in the past?
You will know what it is.
So commit to closure this month. Let May 2020 be the time when you finally surrender all of those things that are holding you back, preventing you from becoming your best self.
This is the collective energy that May 2020 carries. Combine this with your Personal Month number for a more in-depth and aligned personal prediction.
To calculate your Personal Month number, you'll need to add your Personal Year number to the current month number (that's the month number -- which for May is 5 -- and not the Universal Month number we've just described!)
Then reduce this to a single digit, and look it up below to read your Numerology forecast for the month ahead.
Wondering how to find your Personal Year number? It's easy:
Back to the Personal Month number...
Now, simply add your Personal Year number to the current month number (which for May is 5) and voila! You have calculated your Personal Month number!
So our friend with the birthday on July 16 would work out 9 + 5 = 14, and 1 + 4 = 5. For her, May 2020 is a 5 Personal Month.
If you're in a Personal Year number 5, then May 2020 is a Personal Month 1.
In any situation, the number 1 brings a powerful opportunity for moving strides ahead in your life.
First off, the number 1 offers you fresh insights, new ideas and a whole host of opportunities that would have felt out of your reach back in April. You're being urged to think creatively and take a few risks. If you can edge yourself out of that comfort zone, you'll feel revitalized and ready to take on anything!
A personal 1 month is no time to limit yourself.
New people may enter your life, new alliances may be forged, and a whole range of personal "firsts" will take place. May 2020 has the potential to be SO positive for you. So grab hold of it with both hands!
If you're in a Personal Year number 6, then May 2020 is a Personal Month 2.
The vibration of this Numerology brings partnership, connection, and collaboration to the forefront for the next 31 days.
Expect to feel more intuitive, empathic, and generally more sensitive to the needs of others. Work projects will likely progress better if you work together with colleagues and co-workers, rather than against them. So if you're a naturally competitive person, then it could be time to change your approach!
Personal relationships also look set to deepen in intimacy and closeness for you this month, as the Numerology of the 2 urges you to harmonize.
Be supportive. But don't shy away from allowing yourself to be supported. May's number 2 vibration could make you very keen to come to the rescue of the other people in your life, but it also brings the danger of losing sight of your own needs. Remember that balance is key.
You'll also likely see some of your new ideas and projects from April's 1 Personal Month take root, so have faith that things are unfolding perfectly for you.
If you're in a Personal Year number 7, then May 2020 is a Personal Month 3.
Lucky you! This month is set for fun and games, as the energy of the three aligns with self-expression and creativity.
If you've ever wanted to explore your artistic side, then May is your month. Spend time with your inner child, tap into your dreams, your desires and most importantly, your sense of humor. The 3 is encouraging you to lighten up!
Work projects or sticky spots in other parts of your life will certainly benefit from a little creative thinking. If you have a unique viewpoint to share, let loose - other people are going to find you irresistible! Plus, May is one of your personal high points when it comes to self-confidence levels. So if you've spent the first half of this most spiritual of years doubting yourself and your abilities, well, it's time to prove yourself wrong!
Try to release any self-critical thoughts that really don't belong to you. As the number of luck, the 3 will truly work in your favor for the duration of May 2020. So do the work now: taking down that resistance to the blessings that are yours, and they will appear before your very eyes!
If you're in a Personal Year number 8, then May 2020 is a Personal Month 4.
It's time to knuckle down!
May 2020 is, for you, a time for hard work and practical action.
After the playfulness of last month, you're being called to set down some roots, and create a bit of structure in your life.
Routine is your friend right now. You'll achieve a lot with your days if you can bring in some discipline and keep to a timetable. If you're a natural free spirit then this could prove tricky, but do your best to stick to it and you'll reap great rewards by the time the month is out.
New things could come your way in the shape of new work opportunities, and this would be an ideal time to seek out a new mentor or training program to boost your existing skills. The energy of the 4 favors learning and refinement, so any practical self-improvement you can do during May 2020 will bring huge benefits.
Aim to spend time at home and in your local community, rather than going further afield, if you can help it. Security and comfort will likely feel like priorities.
If you're in a Personal Year number 9, then May 2020 is a Personal Month 5.
You are moving through a strong combination of frequencies right now!
A personal 5 month brings freedom and the yearning for adventure. Change is very likely on the horizon too, as this numerological frequency tends to shake things up a bit.
As the digit of expansion, the 5 will be encouraging you to think outside the box and see the world differently. And you may have very little choice about it!
Don't shy away from showing up strongly as yourself. Pieces of your life are falling away, as space is being created for new things to enter in. You may feel restless, and eager for the coming shifts, or you may find yourself gripping tightly onto what feels secure.
Embrace this transitional time, by willingly letting go.
Any resistance to change will make the process harder. Yet loosening the reins a little and believing that everything coming to pass is for your highest good, will ensure the next 31 days pass a whole lot more gracefully.
May 2020 could also be pivotal for your physical health. As the number of the body, 5 pertains to the human form, so be sure to ground into yours this month, by eating well and getting plenty of exercise.
If you're in a Personal Year number 1, then May 2020 is a Personal Month 6.
For you, May carries a loving, generous vibration that means your focus will likely turn to the other people in your life.
Embrace the 6's nurturing, creative influence by gathering together with close friends and family, and spending time with those you love most. These kinds of close-knit gatherings will feed and nourish your sense of well-being, and after last month's personal 5 energy, you likely need to feel extra rooted right now.
Be careful that you don't over-give. Similarly to the 2 Personal Month you moved through in January, boundaries are a must for you at the moment. The numbers 6 and 2 can tend to act as beacons to those in need, and you may find that you get a lot of appeals of help for the duration of May 2020. So give, serve and love, but remember to replenish your own cup, and say "no" if you're already overstretched.
Be sure to find ways to let your creative energy flow. This will replenish you under this Numerology, so make it a priority. Inspire others through being a fountain of light and positivity and holding space – not giving it all away.
Make the extra effort to let go of any unhealthy family dynamics this month. Tread carefully, and act with compassion, but be sure to stand up for yourself and what you need.
If you're in a Personal Year number 2, then May 2020 is a Personal Month 7.
For you, May 2020 could a lot feel like someone's put the breaks on life. The energy of the 7 is introspective, spiritual and meditative, and so it may appear as though not much is going on. Yet below the surface, well, that's where all the action is happening!
Go easy on yourself.
Try not to push yourself towards pre-set goals, or achieve too much, because whenever the 7 appears in the Numerology cycle there are subtle changes occurring. Let them come to pass, even when it's not clear what they are!
Instead of pushing for progress, take time to think, meditate, write, research and sleep. Work on getting resourced internally.
Let go of your desire to take action and make progress. Release your ideas of what "progress" means.
You may feel like taking time out socially over the next four weeks and spending a little more time alone, especially after April's focus on family and friends. Schedule in time and space for yourself. Spend time out in nature, unplug from your devices, and focus on your personal well-being.
May could be a good month to deepen into your closest relationships, but if you do need space, ensure you find it.
If you're in a Personal Year number 3, then May 2020 is a Personal Month 8.
This is the one you've been waiting for!
After a gentle, introspective April, it's time for you to step up into your power!
This is a strong vibration: the 8 often appears in predictions of prosperity, wealth and abundance. Focusing on your career, investments and work in the world will put you in a strong and capable position. So don't be afraid to take a risk or two – put yourself out there, and you can expect to see the fruits of your labors really quickly.
During an 8 personal month, it's also vital to stay in your integrity. Don't be tempted to cut corners or cheat the system – as the number of flow and balance, you could just as easily lose it all, if your intentions aren't clear.
Release any fears you have around personal power. As Marianne Williamson said: "Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure."
This is your calendar month to flex into that power, as you'll likely find that you have more influence over other people than you previously thought.
Remember to keep a healthy balance (there's that word again!) between your professional and personal lives. Be sure not to neglect the people you hold dear, however bright those city lights shine.
If you're in a Personal Year number 4, then May 2020 is a Personal Month 9.
The 9 for you is strong here. Cycles in your life are coming to a close, and it's important that you gracefully let them reach their completion.
Perhaps a friendship or relationship has reached its natural conclusion? Or could it be a step on your career path, or a field of study or interest?
Endings can be scary, and it's likely you will feel all the feels over the next four months, as you're being faced with many unknowns. Yet realize that with every ending comes a new beginning. The future is waiting for you! So it's important for you to use the next 31 days to make space in your life for what is to come.
The 9 also bring a humanitarian edge to whatever it touches, so expect your focus to turn outwards into the community around you. Spend your time and energy this month on people who need you. Give, be generous with your resources, and give your own ego a rest.
There is also a strong vibration of forgiveness that comes with the 9 – forgiveness of the people around you, especially those you may feel have wronged you. And also forgiveness of self. There is the potential for great healing this month if you can hold yourself in softness.
