How to calculate your number
Begin with your date of birth. Reduce the date to a single digit, if you’re born on a double-digit date, by adding the digits involved. For example: If you’re born on the 12th of a month, your number is 1 + 2 = 3.
The Capricorn period began in the second half of December, bringing with it a certain sluggishness that will go on till January 20. In numerology, No. 1, which represents the Sun, is a fortunate number, but when in conjunction with Saturn, the lord of Capricorn, it remains as harmonious or disharmonious as a father-son relationship. However, it will be a decent month overall. The most important virtue in January shall be patience, as Saturn makes one undergo trials. And like the Sun, your ruler, you will take time to get what you 8 desire. Try to focus on your goals; despite initial delays, your enthusiasm, combined with hard work, shall turn the tide of fortune in your direction. Remember, inactivity proves fatal for No. 1s.
This month is governed by Capricorn and ruled by Saturn (No. 8), the lord of trials and judgement. No. 2s and No. 8s don’t share that great an amiable bond; hence, you could face a few hurdles in achieving your targets.Things may not materialise, or may do so too slowly; try to stay unruffled. Remember, we 9 don’t head out for a drive in poor weather. Be careful before making a huge investment, both financially and emotionally; anything important and avoidable should be pushed to the second half of February. Having said that No. 8, Saturn is not a villain; if you labour hard,chances are, you could come up victorious.
No. 8, the Capricorn period in January, and No. 3 are accommodating to each other. Be prepared to be tested because of Jupiter (Guru) and Saturn (Shani). Think long-term; avoid short-term speculations. No. 3 and No. 8 are both hard workers, but success arrives at your doorstep rather late. So this month will be slow, but definitely worth it. Hard work and good luck together will eventually pay handsomely! Financially, it appears to be a better month as opposed to the last of 2021—perhaps, an even better year to kick-start a new project or enterprise, provided you are ready to take baby steps. It’s not the best time for commercial partnerships; trust only your intuitions in finances and relationships. That being said, 2022 (No. 6) is your year of significant fortune, as 3, 6 and 9 are a family of numbers lucky for each other.
No. 8, the Capricorn period in January, and No. 4 attract each other strongly. Hence, it would be a particularly eventful month with fortunes that could swing either way. Even though 4 and 8 find themselves attracted to each other more often than any other number, its extremes may not be well accepted. There’s a strong possibility of problems cropping up in personal relations, if you don’t think before you speak. Words are like arrows; once spoken, they can’t be taken back. On the other hand, if not laid-back in your approach, you could win accolades for your brave performances. Work on your presentation skills as much as on your intentions and ideas.
As No. 5 and No. 8 share an affinity, it’s a great time for you. As a matter of fact, 2022 (No. 6), as a whole, is from your supremely lucky years. In financial matters, there could be a leap, starting this month. Travel is on the cards, and those who crave to see far-off lands can realise some of their dreams. This could also be a stressful month, if you let your mind stray; worrying unnecessarily comes naturally to you. It’s a well- known fact that stress can cause stomach ailments, apart from making you irritable and short-tempered. On the positive side, Mercury blesses you with recuperative powers, ensuring that you bounce back from difficult situations. Relationships can get healthier, along with your optimism.
January could be the starting point of fortune for your number, as it’s a Venus-governed year. It’s your year as well as month to vouch for. No. 6 and No. 8 (January is a Capricorn- governed month) are generally pally. Focus through the year could be on relations, material gains and social gatherings. Those looking for a new property can well be rewarded if your finances are in order; try not to take loans that run an element of risk, unless it’s a fairly calculated proposition. There could be a wide range of fluctuations on the emotional front, so don’t go overboard. Don’t always listen to your heart alone, or there could be a chance of getting cheated, emotionally as well as financially. For students, it could be a good year to improve your qualifications and raise the bar. Those waiting for marriage may need to bide some more time.
If you pull off the manifestation of a No.7, this month will grant you all that you require. Frequent mood swings are on the cards, especially if you’re impatient. If work is not totally in your favour, you’ll have the support of loved ones to fall back on; reciprocate by showing your gratitude. Financially, you could be in a spot of bother. Travel plans could materialise, owing partly to your restless disposition. Take some time out for rehabilitation. You could also periodically live on past laurels until your time comes—and that’s not a long wait.
This Capricorn- and Saturn-governed month, when coupled with your No. 8, may ensure you have an eventful time. The adage “as you sow, so shall you reap” is what Saturn wants you to believe in. So how things unfold will depend on your labour and actions. There’s no better time than the start of a lucky 2022 (No. 6) to lay the foundation. Sweat, strive and strike. In most spheres—physical, mental, financial or emotional—there could be an obvious delay, but with an escalation or bonus, that would well be justifiable. Investments in land may give you good returns, but nothing short-term. Your key to not only this month, but your entire life, should be the three Ps— practicality, patience and perseverance.
Capricorn (No. 8), which governs this month, and Aquarius (No. 9) are not two peas in a pod. So brace yourself for a rocky period. March will bring your favourable Pisces (No. 3) time, and soon, we’ll be in the Aries (No. 9) period. If not this month, 2022 (No. 6) will belong to you; only lack of effort can stop you. When dealing with others, try not to let your ego get in the way; you don’t have to be in control to do well. Be wary of accidents. This period doesn’t favour the reckless! Focus on your physical well-being. Workout and stay busy. Financially, you could make more money. Keep a tab on your expenses—and your temper to avoid messing up relationships.
