Numerology: The Year of the Sun

Yet another year has gone by, ushering in a new. Which way it flies will determine one’s fortunes. I look at 2017 from the prism of numerology. So, do the numbers add up well? Let’s take a peek.

2017 gives us the number 1, which represents the Sun, which is fiery and hot. So, we may not have respite from the heat for another year. 2018 adds up to the number 2, representing the Moon — colder and calmer.

2017 adds up to the number 10, which connotes “a wheel of fortune that’s not stable denoting success and failure, rise and fall, one’s name will be known for good or evil”. The number 10 has two numerals in it, 1, representing the Sun (hero) and 0 (zero). My reading is that the world economy could be turbulent, with stock indices swinging crazily both ways.

India: why times will be trying!
The post demonetisation tribulations for India may continue right till August 2018, when the country will enter its 71st year of Independence. The number 71 adds up to the numeral 8, which represents Saturn, the strict lord of trials. If you recall, the Prime Minister announced demonetisation on November 8 at 8 PM.

But Saturn does not only pose trials, it also compensates for it — and well. So, India’s 72nd year will be far better and can even be a landmark year, as 3, 6 and 9 are a family and India is influenced by the number 3, while ‘Bharat’ is influenced by the number 6.

Yellow, gold, brown and orange would be the best shades in the year of the Sun. Sun is the creative force that gives light and life. Creative industries like Bollywood would do better in 2017 than in the year gone by, which wasn’t quite ‘filmy’.

Consultancy or ‘service’ providing industries (like banking) could shine, as could manufacturing and advanced inventions, like information technology (IT), software and other forms of technology. Reliance Industries honcho, Mukesh Ambani (birth date 19/04) is influenced by the number 1 and so, would continue to be in the news.

The Sun is the creative force. It is so powerful that it gives Light and Life to the universe, so radiant that we hardly see any other planet or star, when the Sun is in its element. Like the Sun, people who are influenced by the number 1, usually like to lead from the front and do better in positions of authority over others.

Those in authoritative positions, like company promoters, team-leaders, politicians and bureaucrats, could have a field year too. Advanced inventions, like technology, IT, solar energy, computer and electronics too could do well.

The Sun comes out early in the morning, but exudes heat only later in the day. Likewise, those influenced by the number 1, too can do well in the latter part of the year, if they haven’t scored well in the first half. This can lead us to assume that the second half of 2017 could be more productive for the world economy than the first.

1,2,4 & 7 being a family, those born on dates influenced by such numbers (1st, 10th, 19th, 28th, 2nd, 11th, 20th, 29th, 4th, 13th, 22nd, 7th, 16th and 25th of any month) could have a field year. Leo’s may shine too in 2017, as the ruler of Leo is the number 1, denoting the Sun. Cancerians and the Taurus born are governed by the number 2, influenced by the Moon and can also expect a bumper year.

Also, all those whose current age is the same as their birth number, are headed for an eventful year. For all those born on the 1st, 10th, 19th or 28th of any month, all the years adding up to 1, could be eventful, like the 19th, 28th, 37th, 46th, 55th, 64th and 73rd years.

Wishing all BW Businessworld readers a Very Happy New Year!
