Laney, you are here to learn how to generate a positive attitude and can-do appraoch. You are a very sensitive soul who is often overly aware of the harsh reality of life. Rather than retreat from this truth however, you are called to engage in the world and actively seek solutions to the variety of problems or issues you will encounter in daily living and to overcome a certain tendency towards passivity. You are soulful, practical and thoughtful but you can also be aloof, self-pitying and negative. You can enjoy a satisfying life's journey provided you don't retreat into personal insecurity or unduly controlling or manipulative behaviour. You have a pronounced tendency towards worry, emotional excess, and concentration on the details at the expense of the bigger picture. Yet there is the highest potential for success here, for you are gifted with great intuition and the communicative power to get your ideas across. If you can better learn to negotiate, rather than demand, and manage to lessen an 'all or nothing' view of compromise and personal interaction, all will go well for you. So much more can be achieved through cooperation and persuasion. Use your considerable powers of observation to find answers and craft solutions. Being negative about a situation in no way improves it or makes you feel any better about yourself. Your Achilles Heel is victim consciousness. You feel you have been taken advantage of in the past and your feelings of helplessness and paranoia lead you to passivity or retreat. But you must take responsiblity for the choices you have made in life and not blame anyone else. When you accept responsiblity for where you are, then you also accept that you have the power over your own situation. You can then take action - you are not some helpless victim and can find a solution to any problem that you have if you only will believe in yourself. Victims are people who sit back and let things happen to them - winners make success happen for themselves. You have all the ability and talents to do well - are you going to let a bad attitude get in your way of great achievement? Are you going to spend all your time on thoughts on escaping from work or trying to run away from some drudgery-laden routine that doesn't allow you five minutes' rest? Or are you going to face your problems head on and find a way around them? You are a deep thinker with capable analytical ability but you are plagued with doubts about things you've been taught as a child - half of which you're afraid to look at or challenge until you get fed up enough. Religion may teach us that misery and sacrifice and being a great sport are good for the soul, but in reality truth is in the eye of the beholder and each person must find their own set of rules that works for them. You are a philosopher and, no matter how much it pains you to disregard what you've been taught to believe, you must cast aside any old beliefs that have disappointed you and any gullibility, and use your objectivity to discern between false thinking and what is actually right for you. You may be so confused that you don't even trust your own brain anymore. You may have developed a fear of consistency and the rigors of education. But you have to rely on your very good intellect and intuition to guide you and not rely on what others have taught you is right. Your conscience will set you straight if you let it. So go forward now without that old victim consciousness and get everything you want without any qualms of false guilt or regret. You can be a good person and still achieve your goals - you just have to do it your way and not follow some system that is not right for the individual that you are. It's time to follow your own inner truth and guidance. According to your numerology, you are in a 3 personal year which is all about socialising and interacting with others, networking for your business. Get out there and persuade people to help you and support you. It is the best year for it. A three personal year is a time of expansion and personal growth. It is time where expression and creative and artistic talents play center stage. If you are an entrepreneur, this may very well be a time of much greater visibility and growth for you and your business. It’s a very social year as well and, lucky for you, your natural charm is at its peak. You will attract people to you like a magnet. And because 3 is the number of joy, you will easily attract more joy to your life and biz. No matter what you are doing or what career path you are on, you will find yourself drawn to opportunities that will allow for more creative expression. These pursuits stimulate you and you’re likely to be inspired by all forms of expression including dancing, public speaking, painting, writing, performing, and even media relations. When it comes to your marketing this is a great time to create a new strategy that you may have been putting off or you thought was too “out there” to share. During this period you will find yourself saying, “It’s more important to express myself and falter than it is to hold it all in and be safe.” However, what accompanies creative and no holds barred expressions are often feelings of vulnerability and doubt. It’s important to just have fun with whatever way you choose to express yourself and resist the temptation to monitor other’s opinions and get so attached to what others think that you allow it take you out. More than any other year you will be interested in entertaining and being entertained. You will find yourself with many opportunities to meet new and exciting people who will inspire you in new ways and introduce you to new ideas that will light a fire in your belly. You may face a few challenges this year also. Scattering your energies. This will be a year of new people, new ideas and exciting opportunities. It’s important to keep focused on your vision and not allow yourself to scatter yourself and flit about hopping from thing to thing in search of the one right answer. You have a rare opportunity to bring new and creative ideas to the forefront but in order to do so you must practice discipline and focus. Getting caught up in the thrill of the endgame. You feel a great deal of enthusiasm and optimism this year and it may cause you to speed up your projects when they actually need more time to develop. You can’t get to point Z from point A in one step so unless your enthusiasm is based upon the reality of work and concentration, you may find yourself at the end of the year with entirely too many incompletions. Caring too much what others think. You can’t move from your heart when you’re monitoring other people’s heads! In general this is a magical year for relationships and it will be a very lucrative year financially as long as your creativity is well directed. The influence in this current year is one of sociability and the arts. It can be a lucky year if your efforts and financial resources are not scattered and your energies are focused on priority goals. During this year you must watch that you bring projects to completion before beginning something new. This is a great year for you to take a vacation, particularly one with an artistic focus, such as photography, painting, writing, or even visiting art galleries or attending plays. Popularity within large and small groups is highlighted, as is work in the public arena. It is also a year in which you may wish to try a new hairstyle or buy some new clothes, as romance and affection are highlighted during this cycle. Self expression is the keynote in both the written and spoken word. This can be good year for selling products, (including your writing), or services. November for you will be a time of major change in your life. Horizons are expanded and growth is less impeded. You are likely to make a number of new friends this month as social activities are expanded. This is a time that will bring excitement and adventure and a good deal more freedom than you have experienced in recent months. This is a time for feeling loose and free; for moving away from old routines in a constructive way. If you became bogged down during this past year, now is the time to seek out new directions.
