SEEK AND DISCOVER
2023 is the seventh year in the current Universal 9-Year Cycle that began in 2017. The seeds and ideas that were planted in that year are readying themselves to be harvested. We are closing in on the end of this Cycle and we must begin to evaluate and re-evaluate that which we have sown. All things must now be re-examined and researched and investigated more deeply. We must take a collective deep breath (Remember, on the seventh day god rested), and so too, must we all as individuals, as a country, a society, and a world, step back for a moment and ask ourselves if we are liking what we are seeing. This is a 7 Universal Year that will bring about a deeper reflection on the past so that we may learn how to improve upon it and build for the future. A greater number of people may slowly (or quickly) discover that “...what they are seeing, is NOT what they are getting.” This can, and should, open people's eyes to the importance of discerning the real truth, as opposed to being susceptible to falsehoods, and misleading “facts and information”. The SEVEN calls for a deeper analysis of situations with more thought and consideration given to the beliefs and actions which we hold and enact. This is a year for visualizing the future through more research and investigation to better understand the 'why' of things. We must work to engender a calm and steady approach in guiding the course of action. In many instances, people will be looking to master and perfect that which they do, using the lessons of the past as a foundation for improvements in the future, as opposed to beginning new projects and starting from scratch. Societies and countries would be wise to do likewise. It will be this type of belief system and attitude that will lead to legislation for national improvement. Patriotism may take on new and intensified meaning without the partisan divide of “...you're either with us, or against us”. 2023 could see an increase in the growth of the GNP of nations around the world and financial improvement is a very strong possibility. The predictions of recessions and more can be subverted through the intelligent use of knowledge and capital. To learn is to grow.
2023 may also bring about a greater interest in nature, farming, and agriculture as people work to strengthen their connection with Mother Earth and look to become more contemplative and reflective on the interconnectedness of life. This could lead to a stronger trend toward conservation and ecology as people show greater interest and concern. As SEVEN is an 'internal' number we will find that local and national infrastructure will demand greater attention, especially with projects that involve water (supply, delivery, treatment, and safety). At long last, we may find a more contemplative and reflective tone expressed in the media as a philosophical and metaphysical awareness of the world and world events becomes more commonplace. 2023 may also bring about more interest in the areas of religion, spirituality, metaphysics, mystical teachings, and the occult as people look to better understand themselves, and the world and universe in which they live. This may also bring about an increased view of psychic phenomena and abilities. We may see medical/scientific breakthroughs that begin to show how that aspect of our minds actually works. Many may find inspiration, guidance, and knowledge through dreams, intuition, and the awareness and use of previously unknown personal abilities in the intuitive realm. Because of SEVEN's association with mathematics and science, this year may also provide great advances and discoveries in those worlds as well as in the world of medicine.
Overall in societies around the world, we may experience an increase in writing, teaching, and the desire to learn which will lead to a greater interest in education and possible improvements and changes in the structures of how we teach and learn. 2023 should also bring about a greater focus on health and well-being, both individually and collectively. On the seventh day, God rested and in 2023 there may be an individual, as well as a collective desire to recharge, re-assess and re-direct the energies. Perhaps, more optimistically, to learn. Or, re-learn that which we think we know and understand.
On the negative side, 2023 may see a rise in satire and sarcasm in the media and the arts (although this author does not think that is particularly a negative when there is intelligence behind it) as cynicism and a lack of trust maturate in the minds of populations around the world. Close attention must be paid to the movement and actions that took place during 2022 as unresolved, festering conditions could again lead to wars although these wars may be more along the lines of civil wars (the American Civil War began in 1861 after years of conflict and dispute around the issue of slavery). This time around, the conflicts are addressing the issues of democracy, human and equal rights, as well as many others that are too numerous to mention. The North vs South this time around becomes Democracy vs Authoritarianism. If the continued discovery of deceptions and malfeasance are brought to light, we may see a sharp increase in doubting the trustworthiness of our leaders. This entire scenario will be exacerbated by those who choose to not research and investigate information using a broad spectrum of sources. Use the energy of the SEVEN to drive the quest to be fully informed about the issues that are most important to you, and by extension, society as a whole. These conditions could easily lead to a worldwide increase in fear and fear-mongering. It is these conditions that could lead to revolutions and once again, political assassinations. The more negative the environment of governments and their relation to their citizens, the more likely we are to see an increase in the numbers and intensity of radical political movements. Controversy could be a hallmark of much of what transpires as increasingly, actions are taken to 'muddy the waters' of understanding and truth. 2023 could also see an increase in worldwide health problems, especially in conditions involving water. Problems such as scarcity, pollution, environmental issues, or on the opposite side of the spectrum, continual escalation in the severity of water-related weather events. SEVEN's relation with water may be an indicator of increased flooding throughout the world. It will also be a strong force during the year, in whatever form it may take.
As SEVEN has a potential shadow side, caution must be taken to avoid deceptive business practices. Doing one's due diligence in all matters involving money and investing should be on your mind. Better to know in advance than to discover too late that your money isn't/wasn't safe. SEVEN energy can be quite the mischief-maker. The deceiver. The charlatan. The magician. The Sorcerer. Or, in real-world terms, politicians and those who wield excessive influence and power. “Trust, but verify” to quote an old Hollywood actor. Societal conditions may also lead to a rise in addictions and addictive-type behaviors. The internal, turning inward quality of the SEVEN can lead to depression or isolation. It's been a rough past few years and we are all healing and recovering. Often from things to which we had previously given little to no thought. Dealing with one's “stuff” can be overwhelming so there is a strong caution to avoid addictive behaviors. Couple that with the bizarre world in which we live, and it may only add fuel to the fire that drives one to self-medicate.
In conclusion, the energy of the SEVEN of 2023 must be correctly directed in a positive, life-affirming, and beneficial way for everyone. The great potential of higher consciousness, increased education, and greater awareness on the part of both the individual and the collective can go a long way in circumventing and overcoming any problems that may arise. People actively striving to re-connect themselves to our planet, while living in greater harmony with the planet and one another will assist in raising the vibration for all. Much of this growth and awareness will be based upon seeking knowledge, applying that knowledge constructively, and living with an increasing degree of spirituality. It is through these efforts that we can do great things, and make great progress in healing.
The number 7 knows that which is hidden can be revealed.
It knows that a secret side can be revealed, and will emerge. SEVEN is
the skeptic, the inquisitive one, the researcher, and the seeker. Its
driving force is the concept of, and the question “Why?” The
SEVEN holds firm to the idea that nothing should be taken for face
value, and that all must be investigated, researched, questioned, and
reshaped if necessary. The ultimate goal is to seek and discover the
truth. It is knowledge, and the search for it, that are the true
harbingers of change.
