For centuries, people have been relying on the concept of “soul numbers” as a means of predicting what the next year of their lives will look like.
It’s no secret that numbers play a vital role in the universe but our soul number is of utmost importance due to how specific it is to each individual.
To calculate your soul number, add the digits of your month and date of birth together. For example, if your birthday is May 17th, take 5 (May is the fifth month) and add to 1 + 7 to get 13.
Take the resulting number and add the two digits together until you end up with a single digit. In this case, we’d go 1+ 3 = 4.
Next, add the digits of the current year together until you get a single digit. Since it’s 2018, this calculation looks like this: 2 + 0 + 1 + 8 = 11, then 1 + 1 = 2.
Lastly, (yes, this is a lot of math – but it’s worth it, we promise) add the two numbers you ended up with until you get a single digit. In our example, we just need to add 2 and 4 to get 6 to arrive at a soul number of 6.
Once you’ve got your soul number, read on to find out what it says about your 2018.
Soul Number 1
This year will be all about new beginnings for you. Now is the perfect time for you to begin thinking about what you want for your future, career-wise and personally speaking. Lay out a plan for your relationships and career and the universe will reward you greatly with plenty of new opportunities for self-development this year.
Soul Number 2
If your soul number is 2, 2018 is going to present you with a whole host of opportunities for partnerships. These partnerships will range from friendships to relationships and professional bonds that will shape your life as you know it.
You’ve often longed for an opportunity to bond with like-minded souls; 2018 is your chance to make that happen.
Soul Number 3
This year will be all about getting your feelings and thoughts out into the universe. You’ve been thinking about doing this for quite some time, pondering picking up journaling, writing a book or blogging. 2018 will provide you the motivation to finally take action on that thought.
Soul Number 4
If your soul number is 4, this year will be all about hard work and responsibility. You’ve got plans for your professional and personal life. Now you’re going to feel a push to put those plans into action and accept responsibility for where you are – and where you are not – in life.
Soul Number 5
You’ve been working extra hard these past few years and 2018 will bring several opportunities to finally let your hair down. It will be a year of abundance, affording you the means to enjoy life and gain motivation as well as inspiration for the road that lies ahead.
You would do wise to spend time travelling as much as possible and enjoying nature.
Soul Number 6
2018 will be all about paying attention to your family and your health. You’ve been so caught up in work and life that you’ve neglected those two areas. Now’s the time to repair any broken bonds and ensure that your body, your temple, is in the best shape possible.
Soul Number 7
This year will be one of explosive growth for you. Now’s the time to focus and channel the energy that’s coming your way into new ideas, thoughts and philosophies. Prepare for a total revamping of your belief system. Embrace this change with open arms as, while it may feel rocky sometimes, you will come out the other side thanking the universe for the shift in your life.
Soul Number 8
You’ve grown exponentially in years past. Now it’s time to reap the benefits of that growth. You’ve developed new ideas and ways of looking at things – but have you fully implemented those new frames of mind?
Aim high and be amazed as your mind recalls information you didn’t even know you’d learned over the past few years.
Soul Number 9
2018 will be a year of resolve. Many of the relationships and projects you’ve grown accustomed to in years past will come to an end. But fret not; these endings will not leave you feeling empty but rather will give you a sense of closure as you accept the finite nature of many things in life.
The many endings you will experience in 2018 will free you up to embark on new adventures in years to come.
