Numerology & the Energy of 2017

2017-universal-1-year-spiritual-meaning-new2017 – UNIVERSAL ‘1’ Year

A UNIVERSAL ‘1’ Year represents the start of a fresh new cycle – a new 9 year cycle of creativity, learning and growth.

A UNIVERSAL ‘1’ Year is a time to plant the seeds of intention for the forthcoming cycle – your deepest heartfelt desires, dreams and visions for every area of your life – relationships, health, finances, career, lifestyle, spirituality etc

The intentions & foundations you set in place during 2017 (preferrably early in 2017), mold the field of potentiality and set the tone & flow of energy within your life over the forthcoming 9 years.

2017-cherishing2017 – A year of CHERISHING

So as we enter 2017, a new cycle of 9 years, how best can we begin serving the emerging NEW STORY of Earth ? I believe we can begin to dream a NEW STORY of Earth into existence by choosing to embody the sacred art of  CHERISHING.

In order to step out of the OLD STORY of this world, 2017 is seducing us to fall head over heals in LOVE once again and renew our vows ‘to LOVE, Honour & Cherish’ ourselves, each other and our beloved Earth.

2017 will be a year of making love to life, of slowing down the pace and allowing ourselves to get lost in the intoxicating blissful pleasure of caress, tenderness and sacred union.  From this ecstatic union we experience the mystical and collectively we dream a NEW WORLD into existence.

New Moons & Full Moons 2017

The Moon & the Sun emanate frequencies and these energy waves influence the tides, and all life forms on Earth, including human behaviour, our emotional/mental responses and our greater spiritual potential.

The SUN represents our ‘outer-world’, our identify, our personality, our ego.  It represents how we ‘shine our light’ out into the world, the present moment, our yang or masculine archetype expression.  The Sun offers us strength, courage and illuminated insight of the Soul.

The MOON represents our ‘inner world’, our hidden emotions, desires, our shadow-self, fears/worries and our dreams.  It represents our feelings, our unconscious beliefs, the past and our yin or feminine goddess archetype.  The Moon offers us the ability to feel, learn from the past and creatively unlock and express our essence.

New_Moon_PThe NEW MOON represents the beginning of our 29 day lunar month. During a New Moon, the moon is roughly sitting between the Earth & the Sun, hence the Sun is shining on the ‘dark side of the moon’, the side of the moon we never see.  As a result, we cannot see the moon as the side that faces the Earth is not illuminated. 

During a NEW MOON, the side of the moon that remains invisible to us here on Earth is being illuminated by the Sun.  Thus our own ‘invisible’ side, our inner feelings, emotions and desires are also being illuminated during a new moon.  During this illumination, we are given a window of opportunity to start a fresh, let go of the energy of the previous cycle and set our intentions, dreams & inner-most desires into conscious action.  In addition, during a NEW MOON, both the Moon & Sun are in the same Zodiac sign… giving an exponential boost or concentration of the energy.

The NEW MOON is a great time to set your intentions, write down goals or begin new projects for the forthcoming cycle. Consider sitting in ceremony or personal meditation and affirming to the Universe your intentions & inner-most heartfelt desires for the cycle.

Moon_FullThe mid-point of our 29 day lunar cycle is marked by the FULL MOON.  During a Full Moon, the Moon is sitting opposite the Sun and is fully illuminated as it reflects the light of the Sun.  In addition, during a FULL MOON, both the Moon & Sun are opposing each other on opposite sides of the zodiac… which can make for a challenging or intense aspect of energy but also a very potent potential as the Lunar & Solar (yin & yang) are in natural harmonic balance.

During a FULL MOON, there is an amplification of energy and a heightened experience of emotions, feelings, mental processes, dreams etc.  The Full Moon is a powerful time of gratitude, gracefully acknowledging the beauty of life itself and all you have brought into beingness.  You may feel a burning desire to express your creativity, bliss out in sensual activities & through fierce yet profoundly tender vibrations let go of any aspects of your life that no longer serve the grandest vision of your Soul.

The FULL MOON is a great time to ‘moon bathe’ – simply sit under the light of the moon & meditate – and is you breathe-in allow the moon to warm your Heart & expand the beauty of the present moment, and as you breathe-out let the light of the moon transmute that which you wish to release.   Full Moon ceremonies, either lighting a candle for yourself or coming together with others in sacred circle, is a powerful way to bring healing to the self/group and simply BE this Wave of LOVE for all Humanity & planet Earth.  I LOVE placing my crystals out under the Full Moon to cleanse their crystalline structures and infuse them with solar vibrations.

Mercury Retrogrades for 2017

mercury-retrograde-lr-smMercury (the planet of communication) moves retrograde (appearance of moving backwards in our sky) approximately 3 to 4 times each year and for approximately 3 weeks each time.

Mercury only takes 88 days to transit around the Sun, whereas Earth takes approximately 365 days… hence at times during Mercury’s transit, from the position of Earth, Mercury appears to be moving backwards (Retrograde) in our skies.

Mercury rules all communications such as computers, phones, travel, electronics and all business/personal communications & documentations.  When mercury moves retrograde and into the darker recesses of our psyche, this may herald a time of misunderstandings, mis-communications, computers & electronics crashing and plans going haywire !

So how do you you consciously work with Mercury Retrograde ? Just consider all the ‘RE’s’, ie re-evaluations, re-checking, re-pair, re-store etc., urring on the side of caution and making sure all details are attended to.  This is not a favourable time for signing contracts and do remember to back up your computers BEFORE mercury goes retro.

Rather than perceive Mercury Retrograde as a negative time, I prefer to work with the energy as a wonderful ‘inward’ time to recalibrate my visions and move forward in conscious action when Mercury moves direct.

Please read my article on Retrograde Planets to understand more about this phenomenon.

Mercury Retrograde – December 19, 2016 in Capricorn
Mercury Direct – January 8, 2017, in Sagittarius

Lunar & Solar Eclipses 2017

lunar-eclipse-sq-energyA Lunar Eclipse occurs when the Moon is full and the Earth blocks the Suns rays from partially/fully reaching the Moon, thus the Moon is cast within the Earth’s shadow.

A Lunar Eclipse provides a quantum opportunity to release deep-seated wounds, move beyond old fears and to transcend negative patterns or traits within the shadow self.  It is time to ECLIPSE anything that maybe holding you back.

During a Lunar Eclipse it is an opportune time to do much inner-work, and illuminate yourself from the inside-out.

solar-eclipse-sq-energyA Solar Eclipse occurs on the New Moon, whereby the Moon moves between the Earth and Sun, obscuring Earth’s view of the Sun.

The energy of a Solar Eclipse ‘obscures’ our vision forward, such that we can take time to reflect on the present and truthfully see how this relates to our past.

The insights gained are not about dragging up old energy, or reliving painful events or experiences, but rather to positively reassess where you have been and use this knowledge to make quantum leaps on your path moving forward.

Lunar & Solar Eclipse Dates for 2017

Penumbral Lunar Eclipse – February 10/11, 2017
Annular Solar Eclipse
– February 26/27 , 2017

Partial Lunar Eclipse – August 7/8, 2017
Total Solar Eclipse – August 21/22, 2017

Please read my article on the Energy of Lunar & Solar Eclipses to understand how to work with these energetic potentials AND how/where to view the Eclipses in your city of the world.

Equinoxes & Solstices 2017

Due to the tilt in our Earth’s axis of rotation, throughout the calendar year the Sun appears to rise and fall in different regions of the Sky, creating the Seasons of the year.  This is not of course due to the Sun moving, but due to the Earth moving relative to the Sun.

The four season’s come into fruition by the two Equinox’s and the two Solstices each Solar year.  Please see my article on the Energy of the Equinoxes & Solstices per solar year and the potential they create within our lives here on Earth.

Equinoxes for 2017

equinoxIn each solar year we have two Equinox’s, one in March (usually around the 20/21st) and one in September (usually around the 22/23rd).

The Equinox is where day and night are of equal length – the energies coming together as one – Heaven & Earth, Spirit & Matter.  As the Spring Equinox we prepare for our re-birth and awakening from the sleep of winter (the great exhalation of the Cosmic Breath) and at the Autumn Equinox we are bringing our energy inward, in preparation for the rest ahead (the great inhalation of the Cosmic Breath).  It is these polarities that make up the whole.

Solstices for 2017

solstice-december-21-22In each solar year we have two Solstice’s, one in June (usually around the 20/21st) and one in December (usually around the 21/22nd).

The Longest day of the year (longest day of sunlight) is the June Summer Solstice (Northern Hemisphere) and the December Summer Solstice (Southern Hemisphere).  Conversely the Shortest day of the year (shortest hours of sunlight) is the June Winter Solstice (Southern Hemisphere) and the December Winter Solstice (Northern Hemisphere).

Where ever you are on Earth, the Summer/Winter Solstice represents an opportunity to celebrate your LIGHT.  As we move into the threshold of a new cycle, it is a time to come together with all humanity through the LOVE of our LIGHT and send a wave of unifying peace through the Crystalline Wisdom Field of our Earth.

Energetics of Outer Planets in 2017


Jupiter in Libra – 9 September 2016 to 10 October 2017: Jupiter (abundance, luck & expansion) moved into Libra (harmony, justice, truth, partnership, social, diplomacy) on the 9 September 2016.  When Jupiter transits a sign, it ‘expands’ the energy/theme of that sign.  Thus with Jupiter in Libra we are being guided to build and work in partnership with others and pursue common goals through harmonic teamwork.  This will bring an interesting energetic dynamic to 2017 as the fallout of Brexit & the US Presidential election has many people divided.  Over the next 11 months we will be inspired to find peaceful resolutions in our lives and find ways to come together despite our differences… finding ways to be kind and co-operate with each other via a collective vision.  You may find during this time that your group of friends/work associates change, you may change your style (eg clothes, hair) and you may change the way you market yourself/business.  In the face of extreme polarity this year, Jupiter in Libra is calling us to stay grounded and hold our balance/centre/equilibrium in the face of polarized circumstances.


Saturn in Sagittarius – 24 December 2014 to 20 December 2017: Saturn (life lessons, wisdom, karma, responsibility) moved into Sagittarius (freedom, leadership, adventure, spiritual, optimistic) on the 24 December 2014 for the first time in 30 years.   Sagittarius rules the nineth house of foreign affairs, philosophy, higher education and world affairs. Jupiter is the planetary ruler of Sagittarius concerning money, luck, travel and spiritual learning.  As Saturn thus transits Sagittarius for the next 3 years Saturn (limiting) is dissecting the Sagittarian/Jupiter (expansive) traits and offerring us a deep insight into our psyche and the opportunity to travel far with our insights (Sagittarian freedom) to implement that which we have learnt in the present (Saturn, structure).

uranusUranus in Aries – 27 May 2010 to 15 May 2018: Uranus (rebellion, freedom, unconventional, technological advancement, humanitarianism) moved into Aries (Leader, impatient, risk taker) in May 2010.  It will be in Aries for 8 years, briefly entering Taurus in May 2018, then it will retrograde back into Aries on 6 Nov 2018 until 6 March 2019.  The last time Uranus was in Aries was 84 years ago !

This period heralds a time of finding your own two feet, your independence and finding freedom to be YOU.  This is a time to move beyond the boundaries of the BOX and own your I AM and not be drawn or defined by the memes of society.  As Einstein said ‘you can’t solve a problem from the same level of consciousness that created it’… thus this is a time to think / feel / be expanded consciousness to solve the problems of today.  Expect the unexpected during this time… and live your life as a direct expression of spirit unique to you… and allow your rawness to empower others to do the same.

neptuneNeptune in Pisces – 4 April 2011 to 15 May 2018: Neptune (Illusion, deception, creativity) moved into Pisces (Sensitive, psychic, dreamy, creative, charitable) in April 2011.  The last time Neptune entered Pisces was in 1848, three years after it was discovered in 1845.

Neptune in Pisces in it’s fullest potential is an awakening to the DIVINE from within.  It fosters a movement beyond materialism / consumerism and the foundations of religious dogma.  Neptune in Pisces fosters spiritual transformation.   This energy provides a potential for humanity to expand beyond perceived limitations through dedicated spiritual practice and to find AUTHENTIC TRUTH.  Allow your IMAGINATION to SEE beyond the illusion and awaken to living with Spirit through heart-n-soul.

plutoPluto in Capricorn – 26 Jan 2008 to 23 March 2023: Pluto (transformation & empowerment) moved into Capricorn (Practical, realist, reliable, hard worker) in Jan 2008.  Pluto was in Sagittarius prior to moving into Capricorn, where it had been transiting since 1995.  Pluto was last in Capricorn Nov 1762 until Dec 1778.

Heralding transformation, Pluto in Capricorn is about death and rebirth or endings and beginnings.  It is a time of breaking down all old outdated structures… structures that embody power & control such as governments, corporations & religion.  This dismantling then creates opportunities to rebuild solid foundations from the ground up and inside-out… structures that support communities, humanity and the sustainable life of this planet.


chironChiron in Pisces – 20 April 2010 to 23 April 2023: Chiron (wounded healer) moved into Pisces (Sensitive, psychic, dreamy, creative, charitable) in April 2010.  Chiron was only discovered in 1977 (though there are pre-discovery photos dating back to 1895).  It takes 52 years for Chiron to transit out sun.

Chiron is the wounded healer, be it our wounds that are physical, emotional, mental or spiritual.  As Chiron transits Pisces it opens a potential to ‘heal our wounds’ beyond just structure & the physical, to a more conscious state of healing of the body, mind & spirit .  Thus this 13 year transit provides a real opportunity to ‘heal’ areas of your life and facilitate deep transformation.  It is an opportunity to repattern the hologram, or transcend deep cellular or DNA imprints and attune to higher states of consciousness.  Victimhood will become a thing of the past (if you so choose), and forgiveness along with all things mystical and unseen heals.
