Living life with dreams, plans and goals is a key to success which includes, (outcomes aside), living life with purpose, passion, and personal power.

You can choose to live life day-by-day and to use your will and ingenuity to tackle problems as they arise, but doing so tends to prove reactive and unproductive.

Looking ahead to gain a sense of the probabilities will support you to navigate the terrain with vision and strategy which can help you to bring your intuitions to the fore along with your instincts and common sense.

It is not uncommon to drag our problems throughout life and, in doing so, they tend to get worse.

There is a reason for clichés such as ‘Forewarned is forearmed.’ Are you as aware and prepared as you would like to be? Getting caught off guard can prove frustrating and expensive in more ways than one.


Are you aware that you can have access to valuable knowledge and insight that can tell you with high levels of accuracy what is in store?


Life is framed by the cycles of time. We see this in the day and night cycle, the month-to-month cycles, the seasonal cycles, the annual and others yet. The bigger cycles are there but are not commonly understood.

Living life day to day may have its merits, but living with awareness, vision and being able to plan and set goals in alignment with the probabilities of destiny generates a deep sense of purpose and passion for life. As well, living life with foresight is a cornerstone of success.

At worst, living life day-to-day implies a life of reaction and without practical goals. One year just flows into the other. Not much happens or changes, but often such an approach reveals hidden problems. It often means that you have not advanced much whether mentally, emotionally, or materially.

Moreover, such an approach often reveals both various forms of accumulated debt and a decline in our overall state of health.

Where we might have progressed, evolved, or somehow improved ourselves and our life in general, we are simply older and without achievements to inspire us to generate new dreams and goals, and aspirations. Often, this reactive approach reveals a lack of achievement, accomplishment, and productivity.

Any time is a good time to look ahead, and you can gain insights on the coming 12-24 months, and you can look backward too, regardless of the key start dates for new cycles. After all, the point of power is ever in the moment, and we can look ahead a year at any time.

The two most common start dates for the 12-month forecast are around the time of the New Year, January 1 and your birthday.

Both these ‘destiny cycles’ can be understood to reveal 9-Year cycles, which provide an excellent from of context for understanding other, larger cycles.

The January 1st date refers to what is called the Growth Cycle in Numerology. Each year on January 1st marks a new number, each year advancing 1 digit, such as 2023 which when added; 2 + 0 + 2 + 3 = 7. So, in 2023, 7 is the Universal Year Number.

More important, is how this cyclic process refers to you personally.

The 9-Year Growth Cycle is calculated by adding your birthday and month as digits to the year in question, which begins on January 1st. For example, if you were born on June 14, 1975, your Growth Number would be determined by adding 6 (for June which is the 6th month) + 1 + 4 + the numbers of the year in question, such as 2023. Thus, 6 + 1 + 4 + 2 + 0 + 2 + 3 = 18 and 1 + 8 = 9. So, on January 1, 2023, you would have begun a 9-Year, which is the last of the 9-Year Growth Cycle and on January 1st, 2024, you will be in a 1 Growth Year and will be starting a whole new 9-Year Growth Cycle.

Further, on your birthday, June 14, 2023, you will have turned 48, which when added = 12 and 1 + 2 = 3. So, by your age, you are in a 3 year. In this regard, whenever anyone turns 10, 19, 28, 37, 46 and so on…, they begin a new 9-Year Cycle based on their age.

So, the numbers from both 9-Year Cycles, your 9-Year Growth Cycle and your age number are significant and offer valuable information regarding the cycles of destiny and the probabilities of your focus, interests, opportunities, and responsibilities and so on…

Now, both these number can also be added to produce a compound number, which also undergoes the 9-Year rhythmic process. So, using the June 14, 1975 example, prior to June 14 and beginning on January 1, you would have been 47 by age which = 11 and when added = 2 and you would have begin the 9-Year Growth Cycle on January 1st, so while both 9-Year Cycle numbers stand alone, they also combine to equate to 2 + 9 = 11 and 1+ 1 = 2.

Then, when on June 14, 2023, you turned 48, which adds to 3, the compound number would be 9 + 3 = 12 and 1 + 2 = 3.

While this calculation process can seem a bit complex, upon review, it is quite elementary. Understanding what the 9-Year Growth Cycle, your Age Number and the compound means is the real value, and it takes background knowledge and practice to render accurate insights about it, background and practice of which I have many years.

There is another key layer of the cycle of destiny corresponding to these two 9-Year Cycles and that is the Solar Return Chart. It refers to the fact that our birthday each year more specifically refers to our own ‘personal New Year.

What is a Solar Return?

In addition to it marking the anniversary of your birth and signifying when your age officially changes, a Solar Return Reading more importantly provides a snapshot of the year ahead.

Each year at a time within 24 hours of your birthday, the Sun Returns to the exact sign and degree it was when you were born. Yet, all the other planets have changed positions, and this creates a new chart. This new chart reveals themes, lessons, experiences, and timing if these for the next 12 months!

The basic fact is that they interact and knowing how they do is your edge of awareness. That said, you can gain a better understanding of these at any time and easily look back to see how the themes they represent already played out to gain even more confidence regarding understanding the probabilities going forward.

The January 1st starts of the 9-Year Growth Cycle and your birthday which includes both the advance of your age to the next sequential digit and the Solar Return each represent 12-month cycles that naturally interweave and overlap.

Understanding these cycles will give you an added edge of awareness of the future over the course of 1 year.



Gaining insight about what is destined to occur in the coming 12 months or so will increase your overall state of awareness, help you to be more practical and strategic, and know when your opportunity periods will occur. In addition to increased overall awareness of themes and opportunities and how to best approach them, you will also gain insight regarding what sorts of tests and challenges you are likely to confront, when they will occur and how long they are likely to last.

With the help of Astrology and Numerology combined, I can provide you with the core themes and timing of the year ahead. This insight supports you to align and cooperate with the cycles of destiny. This knowledge, insight and guidance will help forewarn, awaken, inspire, and empower you. You will have the advantage of foresight to both deal with long-standing problems and challenges and get a big added advantage on making the most of the destined themes and their timing to advance to the next level in your life.
