If you are in a 1 personal year-There is a renewed impetus to get more out of your life. What is it that you really want to accomplish? If you already know, you will find that you are closer than ever to reaching your objective. If you do not know, this is a crucial time to acquire the clues you need to get to where you want to be. If you are connected to your inner source, you will move though several obstacles and oppositions. Conditions within the social structure around you are deteriorating and your strength and clarity will be importance in the times ahead. A heated debate can lead you to startling information. In your effort to disprove someone you will discover a body of information that causes you to revise your own current stance.
This can be a cycle when you very well can find yourself in a situation where you will have to stand up against a willful adversary and skillfully defend yourself. You must know how you feel and define your feelings while under scrutiny. You can come out a much stronger person facing yourself and fear of another. Quick thinking and a burst of good old ingenuity lead to an inventive solution for the moment.
If you are in a 2 personal year-After coming out of events that have brought redirection and revision of life focus, you will become more certain about where you want to be and what you want to do. Your journey could now take a more unconventional turn as you are introduced to alternative life styles and modes of living that are flexible and let you choose among multiple options. You will want to keep a professional image even though your course is toward the far out. With time what you do will not be so far out and many will come to seek your assistance. This change of mind and heart can lead you to yet more life altering wisdom. You will learn about strange customs of a people in a faraway land. You realize that there are implicationsfrom these cultures that can apply be to improving social relations in your own community.
As if guided from an inner voice you find yourself collecting information and artifacts that you will need for an upcoming public presentation. This can be a good time to lighten up and make things as fun and enlightening for participants. You will find that seriousness and pushing your agenda too far will not get much done. You may find a lot of personal truth for yourself from a movie or television script that you just happen to catch. Improvisation is the name of the game as you rush to finish your project.
If you are in a 3 personal year-Times and circumstances are changing all around you, so you have chosen to surround yourself with a new circle of people you feel you can trust. You have learned to know more about your own true feelings and to recognize your negative emotional traits. Consequently, you would like to be with a partner and with friends who have gone through similar stages of growth, and have made similar advances with themselves. You are enjoying how easy is to express some of your creative abilities in the context of a supportive group. You are fitting into a group where there is trust, joy, merriment and lots of good humor. This gives you added assurance with self as you step out into an expanded venture that touches the minds and hearts of many searching souls.
You can get yourself into an awkward situation when your outspoken and candid reactions in a social setting, catch your associates off guard. By ignoring protocol too much, you may overstate your opinion. With prior consideration given to the moment you can pull off a convincing coup without offending or challenging the current public posture. It can be to your best interests to have the future support of this group.
If you are in 4 personal year-You are experiencing frustration in the search for the person you feel has the power to bestow that will take you to the next level of consciousness. Perhaps that person is you. You have come to be distrusting and even cynical in your steps up a higher ladder of awareness. Perhaps rather than trying so hard to get there, you could just try being there. It is just possible that rather than feel like you have been left out or left behind the growth express, you will realize you are in just the right place at the right time. Don’t get too caught up in the quest and miss the moment.
A good deal of your of your energy is now being directed into getting a new endeavor underway. This is a project that you may have been developing for years, and it is difficult to contain your zest and enthusiasm when you see the possibility of completion. What you interpret as possible rejection turns out to be a technical delay. The public is ready to her what you have to say more than you realize.
If you are in a 5 personal year-You will soon discover that team considerations are more central to accomplishment that stubbornly clinging to a personal position that has some noticeable weaknesses. You willing to take positive criticism will endear you to the collective consciousness and result in the personal empowerment you want. You have a great contribution to the group plan. Another member will offer you advice that contributes positive alterations to your presentation, while at the same time elevating the probability of success for everyone involved. It is time to move assertively once you are in tune with the collective unconscious.
This period can be playful, paradoxical and perplexing. You will find yourself stretched out thin with multiple tasking and many life opportunities. You have asking for variety, and now you have more possible selections that you can imagine. You have been looking for love and have become uneasy because someone may be interested and you suddenly are unsure of what to do. You have turned conservative when others are expecting to see more of your wild side.
If you are in a 6 personal year-If you have become uncertain about what to do in a bad relationship this can be the time to either do mutual work with partner or end it. Perhaps partner does not think that there is as much of a problem as you do. If you would like the relationship to work, you might want to get some third party assistance. If you do not really believe it is going last, be honest with partner about your feelings. It is time to recognize how you are feeding into the problems and take responsibility for your part. If not, you can take the same issues along with you and start up again once you have entered into a new relation. If there is a solid basis to your love, then you may be able to work matters out and move on into something better.
Perhaps you have had a promotional idea or an artistic idea circulating around in your mind. This is an excellent time to organize it and put it into a sellable product. You just might be surprised at how much interest others may have in what it is that you are wanting to do. You could express an idea that was supposed to have been discussed weeks or months ago. It could turn out to have an alternative use that brings a big return on investment to both you and the intended recipient.
If you are in a 7 personal year-You are empowered at this time with an infusion of subtle energies that add to your effectiveness and power. It will take time for this new energy to fully arrive and become integrated. You will be making some upgrades in procedures to enhance the effective application of new found abilities. Travel and introduction to new cultures and the people of other cultures adds to the enrichment of your personal and professional experience. You also take time to do some networking and matchmaking of compatible souls who can be of assistance to each other’s life and love ambitions. Love could even blossom for you among some of your connections that you have linked.
The little child in you wants to do something that your parents would not let you do when you really were a little child. You run into a situation that puts you in the position to do something that was a hushed and unspoken family taboo. After going through all of the emotional pressure of deciding what to do, you realize the whole issue is really silly. Later you will realize that it masks a deeper issue from you parents own early childhood experience that has left an imprint upon your development.
If you are in an 8 personal year-If you are getting some bad press at this time, you will want to seek the source. It could be coming from someone close to you. You are not comfortable with yourself, and realize that some of the criticism has a ring of truth to it You take time to acknowledge a side of yourself that has been hiding some dark secrets. You have been able to get away with using your charm and smooth talk. You have an opportunity to meet a most interesting group of people who will alter you way of looking at humanity. You have become rather narrow minded at times and the events of this cycle will open your eyes further into the nature of human behavior, especially your own. There can be an intense verbal exchange with an authority figure. Court rooms, legal codes and questions will keep many of you busy at this time.
You temporarily master how to meet friends and influence people. You are vibrant, entertaining and convincing. This is a good time for sales, promotions and spreading the word. It is easy to overindulge at this time as the mood is festive and the desire for consuming life is strong. There can be a strong urge to spend and you are cautioned about making wild speculative investments with your funds at this time. Dating, dalliance and delight suggest a good cycle for lovers and romantic plots.
If you are in a 9 personal year– Murky moods, boredom, and festering angry emotions lie just below the threshold of your awareness. You find yourself sifting through a complex array of issues and emotionally charged threats. The paradox of this challenging melodrama is that your inner life is in relatively stable order. You have become so distracted by the events of illusion passing by that you have forgotten to listen to the still small voice within. You are worried because you do not feel you have gotten to the top of the spiritual mountain. If you stop the desperate search for a moment and look within, you may find you are higher than you realized.
Ideas are popping and it is difficult to contain your enthusiasm toward your inner work and career direction. A chance remark or something seen on air inspires you closer toward the manifestation of an idea which has considerable merit for success. Some of you are prone to headaches at this time. You get a new insight into the nature and origin of stress and are giving thought as to how it can be reduced. A night out on the town brings relief and some merriment into a serious moment.
Close, but no cigar. The Blazers surprised us (except for old man numbers), entertained us (including old man numbers) and put together an exciting and accomplished season. I have already repeatedly pointed out organizational tips and suggestions as viewed through the numbers. These still apply.
It is clear the Blazers could use a strong and steady scoring, rebounding and defensively competent small forward. They probably have not had such a small forward since Cliff Robinson. Khris Middleton would be an excellent numerological fit if acquired through free agency. A couple draft potentials that could numerically fit would be Cam Johnson and Grant Williams (converted to a small forward). Similarly, the Blazers could benefit from a power forward with the same pedigree as mentioned above.
They would improve dramatically with someone who could go head to head with the likes of LeBron James, Kevin Durant and Paul George. But, then, who wouldn’t you might ask! Imagine the outcome of the play offs if they had LaMarcus Aldridge at power forward rather than Aminu!
The Blazers should have a better shot at getting a stellar free agent after the successful results of this season. They have Curry, Turner, Hood, Layman, Harkless, Aminu, Leonard and possibly Collins to put together in combinations that could attract some pretty substantial draft choices. Or combinations could be made to snare a star quality player in trade.
The verdict is still out as to the status of Terry Stotts. He is liked by his players and has proven to be a good coach. But is he going to be a great coach? He has had time to demonstrate so, and has not reached that status. One wonders what “Pappy” Popovich or Steve Kerr might have done with this same bunch?
As presented before, Terry Stotts has a couple major 5’s, which is the number of versatility, experimentation and alternative ways of getting things done. In several ways he has shown that and then turns around under stress and gets crazy conservative and conventional. Here are some stretch your 5 imagination thoughts: If you keep Aminu consider playing him at small forward. Or, maybe play Kanter at center, Nurkic at power forward and Zach Collins at the small forward. WHAT! Why not? He is young, quick and can probably guard the Jameses and Durants and Georges as well as any defender. Zach has already shown that he can get in the way and handle the little gnats running around as guards. He is a small framed power forward and even with weight work will not match the biggies in size or mass.
The numbers suggest a year ahead of some major housecleaning. Will Neil Olshey go to Los Angeles? Will Terry Stotts still be here? Will we have a clue as to who might become the next owner? Stay tuned.
If you are in a 1 personal year-Your present desire for more freedom can be mixed with the guilt and burden associated with your responsibility to a present relationship that is floundering. You are interested in trying out a new path and partner does not share much of your vision or intent. Some time spent sharing lighter moments and good humor prove to be both a stimulating tonic for inspiration and a path of catharsis while releasing some old emotional patterns. Your own emotional insecurities are fight in front of you now and you have an excellent opportunity to do some major healing on that level. More open and communicative people come into your life at this time and open new doors to communication and possibilities.
This can be a time when you find yourself revising the picture of what you would like in a partner. Your evolving development and self growth has opened up alternative prospects you would accept in a relationship. This can be a fun time to explore these alternatives and in the process you will find yourself more aware of who you are. You could start to yearn to live in another part of your country or of the world.
If you are in a 2 personal year-Have you been following a conventional belief system that provides you with the security of the crowd, and surrounds you with a safe, socially correct circle of associates? These are nice predictable people who mean well and aspire to keep the world stable and secure. Perhaps your expanding search for truth and bubbling intuition are trying to show you something that is closer to your soul and nearer to your heart. An entirely new set of planetary archetypes are coming in, and you will find that you fit a revised belief system and support group that compliments your expanded consciousness. You will now find yourself wanting to get out and mix with a different set of friends, acquaintances and circle of more awakened and inspired associates.
You could very well find yourself becoming more interested in current events and social changes taking place all over the world. It is so confusing to make a logical evaluation of issues and events. So you will be learning to trust your ability to discern and decide what you believe and how you want to act on it.
If you are in a 3 personal year-Where once you might have been passive and even cowardly about taking a stand, you are finding the inner strength and conviction to be more firm and assertive in expressing your position regarding current events and social issues that impact your life. Also in close personal matters you are not as likely to be emotionally manipulated or used by others. You are better now at holding your own and speaking out clearly about emotional needs. This results in attracting more respect and partners who are more open and clear about sharing emotional feelings with you. You are more emotionally composed in dealing with the challenges and some adversities of the cycle.
Perhaps you have been sitting on an idea that could yield rather pleasing monetary gains and allow you to vent some powerful creative forces rumbling around in your aura. You are introduced to financially adroit entrepreneurs and investors who could be strong allies in the process of helping you to make your dreams come true. The could be a good cycle to try a lotto ticket.
If you are in 4 personal year-You may be feeling the pressure to get out of a job situation where you no longer want to be. It is starting to seem like a dead end, and the heart is yearning to do something else. It is very possible that you will be able to qualify for training that will help get you closer to your new interest. Once you have made the change, you will be glad that you took this step along the way because there has been some additional skills learned here that will come in handy at the next stop. This can be a favorable moment to do some self-examination of how you deal with risky ventures and unstable situations. You can be compulsive more than intuitive, and this can be a good time to learn the difference. Application of more guided inspirations brings positive results in several sectors of your life.
A whimsical getaway retreat or vacation can pay high dividends in terms of the revitalization and more spirited attitude that comes from getting out of your usual social and commercial routine. Some various physical exercises worked into this particular cycle can prove not only good for the body, but a potential emotional catharsis. A dreamy delight of a date is in store for many of you.
If you are in a 5 personal year-You suddenly feel bolder, and possibly even daring, about taking steps forward where you used to pause. It may well be time to push, but be careful not to overdo and go to the other extreme. This can be some time of mystery and wondering just how much to trust and whom. You may step out of your element to investigate a better opportunity for your life. Things happen quickly and timing is of the utmost during this window of opportunity. You take some time to try different forms of adventure and looking at new places through travel and media exploration. You are restless now regarding your relationships, and may find yourself soon making some changes in your own self and in your choice of whom you are with.
A dip into another culture could be good soup for the soul at this time. Some travel and fun that snaps you out of some pretty set biases about life and living will come intensly, and leave you revitalized from the realization of growth. This is a great cycle for meeting one who will become a special life long friend andconfidante.
If you are in a 6 personal year-You are becoming more personally concerned about some of the troubling social events taking place around you. And now you see how you might have direct impact upon the situation. It may require acquiring some additional communication skills. With a little investigation you are able to locate just where you can get the needed training to allow you access to an audience large enough to have influence. You may have worked hard to cultivate a survival self image that gets you through the daily components of social and personal living. But, are you in touch with your true Self and do you present an Image of integrity and truth?
This can be a time of conflict within. You feel guilty when you have time to play, and want to play when responsibilities to others consumes your time. This can be a time when you come into contact with a group who present an intriguing philosophy that is much different from that you have believed in for most of your life. Your curiosity is stirred and your bag of questions is gifted with some most alluring and wise teachings.
If you are in a 7 personal year-This moment in your life can find you losing or having to let go in some way of attachments that have been long a part of your life. This could mean material losses and/or the reexamination of ideas and opinions on life. There will be the added emotional strain that comes with decisions and circumstances of such changes. You are more aware now of what has more permanent value and meaning to your life, and desire to strengthen ties to the perpetual part of your soul. There is an opportunity now to work in unison to integrate intuition (of the feminine anima) and logic of the masculine (animus).
For some of you this can be a time of opportunity to take a long and distant exotic journey that reshapes your view of the world and causes you to ponder a different direction in your life. This can be a time of meeting those with like mind, and you may spend some time in a commune or extended stay with a community of wonderful awakening souls. Some fun in the sun brings joy and a smile to your face.
If you are in an 8 personal year-You could feel inspired to reorganize and revamp your life goals and the way you go about doing your life work. This can be a period of opportunity to expand income and gain further recognition for what you do. You are around successful people and can learn much now from those who have done it. For the awakening this can be a time to get back on the path toward your inner work and soul mission. Changes in public opinion are creating sectors of influence which are compatible with your views and include many people wanting to hear the ideas that you espouse. Discipline and drive are a favorable mix to get you where you want to be.
Perhaps you have missed out on part of life because you have put so much effort into your work and efforts to be a success. Perhaps you have cultivated an image that you thought would improve your opportunities. Now you may be seeking to get back to being who you are and reacquainting yourself with the inner and ongoing consciousness. You could find greater success than you ever dreamed by just being You.
If you are in a 9 personal year-After witnessing all of the miracles taking place around the world and people revealing beyond belief abilities and talents, you decide to become more aware of the unique gifts with which you were blessed. You realize there is much undeveloped within yourself that can best be shared with others. You are more willing to go after what you want and be more assertive in the pursuit of that which is good for you. Too much push can lead to strain and possible accidents, so paced enthusiasm might be the best course of action. You mingle amid some doers and shakers which adds to the inspiration, and could lead to some excellent contacts and possible associates.
You may experience moments of wonder lust and an impulsive urge to just step out and do something wild and even ridicules. You have been holding onto a lot of pent up energy and some of it is blown out now. Some good downright rowdy fun might just be in order. Once things are flowing better again you will gain further insight about some emotional blocks that have bee in your way for a long time.
The numerical formula was clear: play the talent and get out of a fixation with an 8 or 9 man rotation. This included a plea to let go of the morbid fear of playing rookies and turn them loose. We got to see what they could do in the last game, but unfortunately that was about the only time they got real time, other than clean up time in blow outs. Don’t rely on Dame to bail them out in the last minute. Remember what Moe did in the next to the last game against the Lakers?
I clearly indicated in that preseason missive, the killer to success would be further outbreaks of SSS. When they played the talent and turned the bench loose they won more often than not. When things got tight and Stotts clung to his limited rotation and heavy time for the starters they played valiantly and were more often than not defeated and exhausted. The biggest case was in the last loss to OKC. Now, by the fate of the NBA gods, the Blazers face them in the first round.
The unconscious message to the bench is that I do not trust you in tight places, and the regulars will play. It undermines the team confidence and distracts form the good will and chemistry that was born out of the collective effort. All you have to do is look at the team record without Nurk and without Nurk and CJ. Turn ‘em loose and let them play. It is, after all, just a game!
If this happens the Blazers will be competitive. Go back to old form and they are gone quickly once again. Even with this said, the numbers for the first round slightly favor the Thunder, and the Blazers will be out after a competitive first round. If they play loose and use all of their talent, there is a slight chance they get by first two rounds and make Chuck immortal by getting to the conference finals. It does not look like they are ready to handle the Warriors.
If you are in a 1 personal year-This is a time of rapid fire experiences and many different decisions to be made. Neglected health issues could now need attention before things turn seriously toward the worse. You may start to look at housing in a new location. The growing social unrest could now impact your life directly and influence decisions that you have to make. Deteriorating global and national financial circumstances contribute to stress and uncertainty. There are many people shouting about alternatives, and it can be a gamble as to which direction to go. The times require wise decisions about money matters. Amid this, time to enjoy some moments of frivolity, fun and maybe a little fantasy amid a new circle of friends.
You are stirred by curiosity from within and find yourself wanting to know more about your true self and the world in which you live. Something feels like there is a greater life and something out there that has thus far eluded your search. Your travels could take you within, above and beyond anything you have experienced before now. Let go and let life.
If you are in a 2 personal year-You question yourself and your role in the troubled world that you see around you. The lack of concern for others is disconcerting to you. What do you say, and where do you take a stand for what you know to be compassionate and true. Perhaps you are troubled because you know that you have taken advantage when you might have been kind and of assistance to someone else. You are encouraged by an emotional maturity and stability that is evolving within and reflected in your exterior behavior. This is reflected by the concerned and caring associates you meet in your daily life experience. There may be someone special in that group who helps to bring out the better part of your valor.
You feel nurtured and supported by a new group of people who have come into your life. You have tried to live by the decree, “physician heal thyself” first, and then think about others. You are part of a group consciousness that aspires to bring effective relief to the dysfunctional behavior so apparent in human behavior.
If you are in a 3 personal year-Some thought will be given to what you are doing and where you want to be going doing what you are doing. Are you heart felt about what you are pursuing? Perhaps there is a creative lapse and sense of conformity or boredom that has crept into your work at hand. Fresh ideas flow freely for a while at this time, and you meet both associates and strangers whose words suddenly ring of truth to your curious ears. Conversations can be particularly lively and debates productive as you exchange thoughts, and at the same time listen to your thoughts carefully to determine if it is truly represent who you are and what you believe. Intuitive flashes can be most revealing and stimulating.
Your vision of the world and universe around you are going through some powerful revisions, and the new perception will both awe and inspire your course of action. This is a time to be adventurous without being careless, to spread your wings and take to the sky. Aplayful and passionate romantic interlude can broaden your perspective of relationshps.
If you are in 4 personal year-You may find yourself almost obsessed with being more practical.You could find yourself taking a course to rearrange the way you go about doing things and reaching for success. Your concept of discipline may also be questioned and restructured. Doing something fun and playful can be a valuable way to take a break and allow your new plans to incubate and reveal intuitive information that is not coming in by trying too hard to mentally formulate your itinerary. You are giving more thought to long term financial planning, and realize the future of financing is rather foggy. You might want to blend a little of the traditional modes with alternative currencies and investments in mind to counterbalance the ledger.
You find yourself troubled at times when you see the abuse of authority and the administration of law and commerce increasing in the world around you. Perhaps you are troubled because you are finding it more tempting to bend a few rules and overlook some of your own slights in your efforts to succeed. You may find yourself debating with someone close to you over the behavior a poklitican or public servent.
If you are in a 5 personal year-Perhaps you have been on the move a good deal throughout your life. Perhaps you are thinking about becoming more stable and creating your success in one desired location. If so, this will be a time when choices and preferences become clearer to you. You have acquired the funds and the know how to create an environment reflecting your views about sustainability, attainability and utility. If you are considering community, you find souls with similar ideas and ideals. If you prefer a separate dwelling, you are introduced to plans and motifs that fit your taste. Whatever the aspect of your life, you are preparing a more flexible and accommodating situation.
You could hook up at this time with some true power players who have experience, expertise and high expectations for life success. You can learn much from the give and take of success stories and strategies shared by these connections. You are keen to see potential for building a stable environment amid a social world of growing instability.
If you are in a 6 personal year-You are suddenly witnessing the events around you with a new open eye. There is the realization that you have a role to play and a place to fit in the world that is awakening around you. You recognize the nature of the clutter that has blurred your inner vision and misdirected you from that which you want the most. Your soul is stirred with excited with the thought that you are once more starting to realize your true path and purpose. It is clear that several aspects of your life need to be cleaned up and stuff cleared out. A vague notion of a distant dream suddenly blossoms into greater realization, and a glimpse of clarity sheds light upon the direction that you must now take.
You now realize how import it is to find and cooperate with others souls who will work with you and support in this pursuit as you do so also for them. It is clear how some of your associates hold you back and distract you from that which you know you must get done. There is time for celebration, new friends and reawakening to the joy of living that comes when the soul is at the right stage of its evolutionary journey.
If you are in a 7 personal year-Up until this moment you may have been so busy and spread out that you have not observed what is really going on around you and within you. Perhaps you are confused and uncertain as to where the society around you is going. You recognize the growing instability and would like to discover a rock of stability upon which you can depend. There are so many conflicting beliefs and ideologies that seem at war to get your attention. How does one recognize what is truth? Is it within you? You may be searching very hard at this time to find your own source. Sometimes the paradox is to stop the search and let intuition bring in your answers. You may be blessed and surprised with what can come after giving quiet time to listening and receiving.
There is a good opportunity at this time to come into contact with similar searching souls and those seeking their own truth. Through inspired dialogue and inner listening you may just find yourself coming into a new realization and inner guided life direction. You could be called upon soon to share those realizations and put them to practical use. You enjoy comfortable communication and the harmony that comes from being with compatible fiends, intimates and associates.
If you are in an 8 personal year-You may find yourself wanting to lighten the load in certain areas of your life. This may be physically, emotionally or mentally. You could be called upon to sacrifice time for someone else and their needs. Objects and goods that once had meaning to you are like weight on your shoulders, and you seem tied down with emotionally draining relationships. Underneath this is a restless yearning to break out and discover parts of living that seem to have evaded you. You find yourself being elevated in the public eye, and people seem to be hearing your message with enthusiasm and appreciation. You are reexamining your attitude toward money, and decide to look into alternative options of investment and currencies.
This can be a time when you redefine your social persona and become more socially active. You feel more at ease in public events than previously, and are open to trying different activities with renewed interest. Pay attention to contracts, legal mattes, and business agreements with an eye on details of the exchanges.
If you are in a 9 personal year-Perhaps there has been a dream job or profession that you have been dreaming about for a long time. Perhaps it is now possible. It may not be easy, but the path can be there. With some investigation and practical preparation you could be ready to qualify much sooner than you believed. You find time to explore some of your talents and your creative flair becomes evident to someone with whom you might perform, or perhaps form a partnership of some sort. You may have become weary of a nagging addiction or compulsive behavior, and find the right place to do something about it. Kids, animals and time spent in nature can bring restoration and a refreshing twist to life.
You are dreamy, dreary and perhaps at times despondent. Rather than cope with the downsides, you are inspired to take a different approach to matters. An idea flourishes and gives you additional confidence to carry on with it. You could be invited to a social event which places you in touch with people who can help you get the things that you want done. The tide is turning your way soon.
I have been a professional numerologist for over 50 years and am best known for my attention to the evolution of human consciousness and encouraging personal growth and self awareness through numbers. Having been at one time an above average athlete, I have throughout the years casually followed some of the major sporting events of our times.
Years ago, while living in the Vancouver/Portland metroplex area, I became a fan of the Portland Trail blazers professional basketball team. By then I was pretty much disillusioned with the big egos, adolescent behavior and extravagances of professional sports.
However, there was something rarely refreshing about the Blazers team spirit and play. I found their relatively dignified and mostly healthy youthful exuberance a refreshing contrast to the increasing assault of adolescent taunting, peacocking, hot dogging, and throat slashing gestures that is now, unfortunately, a part of most professional sports, and college ball as well.
This year 2018-19 is almost a repeat. Consensus of the “pro” analysts, ESPN and Vegas statisticians had the Blazers winning around 30 some games: give or take. And, most agreed they would not make the play offs. Once again I was the only national sports prognosticator indicating 47 to 49 wins and perhaps as many as 52! Boom. Nailed it: Part Deux.
Their playoff prospects were at best uncertain and are now more so with the tragic injury to their big guy, Jusuf Nurkic. Perhaps the collective emotional theme to win it for the “Nurk” will carry the Blazers. However, this type of emotional rally cry often burns out before bedazzling. I’m not even going to speculate on their results. As a fan, I hope they do well.
This aspect of numerology is fun, but a minimal part of my personal scope and purpose for doing the numbers. I hoped that success might catch the attention of those who would choose to look into the real merit and potential use of numerology for greater purposes.
For the most part, I get inquiries from people wanting to use it to “pick winners”. I had hoped the interest would ascend that level. From my experience of over 40 years as a therapist, it is clear relatively little healthy benefit or personal growth comes from gambling and the gambling personality. I know, because I flirted with it successfully from time to time over the decades.
Gamblers are very often people who crave change and something better for them and the world. Perhaps the exploration of numerology might help the gambling personality to focus their imagination and ingenuity to gamble upon causes of transformation and innovation that contribute to a better and more prosperous world for all.
The message that I hope comes from this article is that curiosity will be stimulated regarding the validity and potential use of numbers for growth in self awareness and maturity as individuals and collectively as a society. Time will tell. But, then time is just one of the many illusions of this dimension, isn’t it!
Donald Trump has stirred up more reaction and sometimes controversy that any president for a long time. Like him or not, the man has stepped into what insiders and savvy investigators recognize as the cesspool of political, social, and criminal environment of Washington D.C. No saint himself, Trump hinted at the complex maze of murky dealings, and war going on between global self interest groups competing for control over the money and mind of the masses. He hinted at that when he acknowledged, “this job is more difficult than I realized”.
His natal numerology chart hints at the extremes of possible transformational behavior and possible outlandish behavior. He certainly has exhibited a little of each throughout his life, and particularly while in office. I recently took a look at his chart after having done it years ago. My first thought about someone with this chart is the potential for “indulgence”! That could mean indulgence in personal tastes, ideas and in his battles of commerce.
It can mean indulgence and adherence to policy and practices with fanatic dogmatism and stubbornness. It hints at mental shrewdness and even brilliance. But that potential is offset by a possibility of clinging to mental arrogance and disastrous ego centered misadventures. His destiny number 99=9 is at best utopian, idealistic, altruistic and desirous of making the world a better place for all. Many world leaders, including tyrants and dictators had the influence of the number 9, and meant well in their endeavors. Many anarchists over the century have had the 9 influence. Their dream vision may be grand, but the ego gets in the way of administration and many suffer in the end from issues of control, war and even annihilation.
Trump’s personal year 5 for the universal year 2019 crosses over the number of his integrated self. It will be immensely stressful, challenging and quite likely will go a long way towards defining his place in history. Will he rise up and lead the nation into the uncovering of its dark side and discovery of a much greater purpose than ever contemplated? Or will he slump and crash under the weight of his own blind ego and failure to see his greater self?
To slump could mean to give in and give up. Not likely for this man who has determinedly gotten this far. Slump could mean slump over like JFK with an assassin’s bullet. After all, he has displeased some of the same people who did not like Kennedy’s idealistic policies. Let us hope we do not go this direction again. He could slump over from the exhaustion of having brought about revelation and transformation in the face of resistance by those who would withhold that from humanity. And then we all rise up with his triumph.
Whatever the outcome for him, the most defining month of this most defining year of his life is very likely to be the month of April when he goes through the 9 personal month of a 5 personal year. As with astrology, there is always a little margin for the cusps each way, and not everything may occur at once in April. However, what does occur will most likely be of momentous meaning to his life and probably to the nation. Whatever you think about the man, it will be an important time to bless and pray for the best outcome for him and for all.

There are thousands of websites offering information about numerology. It is difficult for the new student, or sometimes the experienced, to know where to turn for solid and professional information regarding the subject. The Numerology Rising staff and consultants have decided to explore the arena of choices and review a list of some of these sites and their offerings. Because of the wide variation of style and qualifications of those calling themselves numerologists, it is nearly impossible to make a sequential listing. Therefore we are placing the sites in alphabetical order.
Here are some of the criteria considered when ranking these sites: 1. Quality and quantity (amount of traffic) of informative numerology material distributed to the reader. 2. Original material contributed to the field of numerology. 3. Contribution to personal growth, self-awareness and the awakening of humanity to the new paradigm of consciousness presently evolving. 4. Connection of the individual, social, planetary, systemic, galactic and universal consciousness as revealed through numbers. 5. Revelation and assistance with the personal and collective human steps of growth including: dysfunctions, dark side, stages of soul growth and emergence into light.
There are thousands of sites that mix numerology and other occult arts (astrology, tarot, I-Ching, cabala etc.). Many of these do a good job of presenting numerical information. However, for this list we have chosen only those websites or blogs that focus entirely (or almost so) upon numerology. If you feel like your favorite site has been overlooked kindly send your information to firstname.lastname@example.org
The top ten sites/blogs in alphabetical order:
(1) affinitynumerology.com>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Affinity numerology This seems to be groupings of disconnected information coming from numerical perspective of a mostly introductory and relatively basic nature. These are good for newcomers and those looking for variations of interpretation. There are a lot of triple digit numbers with little to explain how to use them. Despite this, the site earns a spot for now, based upon offering some refreshingly different material and access to multiple sources for a diversified look at numbers.
(2) blog.feedspot.com/numerology.blogs/ >>>>Feedspot Feedspot is listed here for its contribution to the profession by offering its listings of the 30 top numerology websites/blogs. The listings offer a divergent selection of numerology sources, thus providing the potential seeker with many options and approaches for exploration of the subject.
(3) creativenumerology.wordpress>>>>>>>>>Creative Numerology There are elements of this site that indicates Christine DeLorey is getting glimpses of consciousness beyond the illusion of this third dimension. Her sensitivity to balancing masculine and feminine energies in personal and social life is encouraging. Also noted is her recognition of the importance of the reemergence of the feminine principle of the Mother aspects of the planet back into daily consciousness. Some refreshing new insights distinguish this site from so many which continue to present old redundant numerology information.
(4) feliciabender.com/blog>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>The Practical Numerologist This is a savvy, dressed for success, socially correct and well-articulated site that offers information based upon conventional and traditional numerology teachings. This seems to be another practical source of information for those working their way through the maze of the 3rd dimensional matrix. Little is offered regarding the evolutionary aspects of human consciousness and the higher master numbers.
(5) glynichasyournumbers.com>>>>>>>>>>>>Glynis McCants Glynis McCants hit the media craze in a big way around 2012 or so, appearing frequently on nationwide television shows. Long time practicing numerologists were bemused by her self-promotion and total lack of recognition to those who had done so much over the previous decades to establish the work. Her entertaining and cheeky style of presentation has provided elementary concepts of numerology to a large audience. As such, she has introduced numerology to a greater audience that might not have been reached by others in the field. Many of those viewers became curious and began to look for more depth and substance to the study, thus, leading them to the work and sites of more professional long term practitioners. Hence, she has contributed to the profession. Her site is mostly self-promoting, and lends little information to one seeking more knowledge about numerology.
(6) michellebuchanan.co.nz/>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Michelle Buchanan Michelle comes across as sort of a New Zealand version of Glynis McCants with a softer touch. This site offers basic numerical knowledge in an entertaining manner that caters to socially popular and trendy sorts of topics. The site gets its place here for reaching out to a popular fan base and stirring up interest in numbers among mass consciousness. The entire field of numerology benefits as those seekers whose curiosity is sparked, start to dig deeper into the more expanded and elevated teachings about the wisdom in numbers.
(7) numberonenumerology.com>>>>>>>>>>>>Peter Schilling Schilling offers a site that flirts with moving from basic mundane numerology into the early stages of expanded levels of consciousness. The information suggests an abstract sense of reaching higher into the levels of numerology, but gives the feeling of one who has not had much personal experience in the paranormal and spiritual realms. There are pages of glitzy images with articles portraying cosmic and esoteric themes, but little information about getting there. This can be useful for those just stepping into the challenges of expanded growth, by offering some rather safe and simple introductions to the first stages into exploration of the expanded realities.
(8) numerologist.com>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Numerologist Numerologist.com is primarily a largely commercial website specializing in startling, shocking and tantalizing headlines. It has a history of dirty tricks and using the names and work of other numerologists without permission to direct traffic to its website. It appears that the ownership may have changed recently, and one hopes that they recognize the past transgressions, clean up their presentations and offer an uncorrupted body of information to their viewers. The website does present many sources of introductory information to a lot of people: and, hence, gets a spot here.
(9) numerologyrising.com>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Numerology Rising Lynn Buess offers a rare contribution of psychological, cosmological and spiritual elements to numerical symbolism that sets a high standard for the profession. His material openly discusses many psychological insights pertaining to the unconscious side of personality.

Aspects of these teachings are being confirmed by modern science with uncanny regularity. This site is loaded with numerous original approaches to numerology, and guidance along the path of expanded self-awareness and personal growth.
