For a lot of us, 2016 was a tumultuous year. Being a 9 year it represented endings, upheavals and changes. A number of issues came to the fore in order for to healing to take place. This was a karmic year and the shifts that occurred were necessary in order to clear out old energy to make way for the new. Unfortunately, this was not without turmoil and many breathed a sigh of relief as 2016 ended. This year, however, carries a completely different vibration.
The number 1 from a spiritual perspective is the number of creation, the primal force from which all other numbers spring forth. It represents new beginnings, creativity, individuality and independence. The number 1 is the initiator and leader. It brings with it a pioneering spirit, full of determination and motivation.
In 2017 we can expect new ideas, concepts and innovations. Because of the creative power behind the 1 energy, these ideas will manifest into reality and not simply be pipe dreams. We need to adopt an open mind as some of these new ideas may seem eccentric. However, this is typical of the 1 vibration and represents progress. A lot of what happens now will determine the next 9 years.
As last year carried with it a sense of hopelessness, this year our sense of hope is renewed. We can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel and be prepared to embrace change rather than resist it.
On a humanitarian level, the global changes and upheavals that took place last year allowed us to develop a higher level of compassion and awareness and this will carry us forward into the next cycle.
Keep in mind that the universal year applies to humanity as a whole. In order to determine your full chart you need to consider your personal year number in conjunction with these influences.
