It is the 15th year in this century, and in Chaldean Numerology, the rules of numbers say that the number fifteen (when combined with "4s" and "8s"), can be associated with sinister and deceptive agendas and energies. This dark side energy can take the form of demonic forces, addiction, abuse, manipulation etc. This type of energy can bring up feelings of fear, and a loss of control. This does not mean we have to be slaves to this energy, but first lets look at a break down of what is going on.
The current year number predicts an energy trend for that year. In my studies, I have found that current years affect us in two ways: The total number of the year, and the last two digits of the year. 2015 adds to "8" (2 + 0 + 1 + 5 = 8). The last two digits are "15". So, this is an "8" year combined with the "15" energy, alluding to the above descriptions as an overall influence. Note that particular "4" and "8" days would increase this energy. These would include the 4th, 13th, 22nd, 8th, 17th and 26th. A secondary influence would come from the "4" and "8" months of April and August. Those "4" and "8" individuals that receive karmic reward from the numbers "4" and "8" may look at this year as a boon, finding much worldly and financial success, and in reaching goals. (These numbers are Chaldean, and in no way relate to personal numbers in Pythagorean. For example, if you Life Purpose Number in Pythagorean is an "8", it does not apply here.)
Note: The 4th and 17th days may have softer energy, due to them having a more positive vibration than the other dates. Secondary days that may affect us negatively, are the 12th, 16th, 18th and all "2" days for "2" individuals.
Here is what I noticed most recently: On March 8th, Sam Simon died, a close relative of mine was on week four, of a six week recovery, and had to go back into emergency surgery for relapse (this has led to a loss of livelihood and body function), my boyfriend had a large amount of money taken from him by a deceptive person (money he badly needed), and I had my own share of incredible bad luck. On the 13th, I had many unfortunate issues come up for me again, our dog had to go to the vet with a serious condition, and a friend's mother died. This was only five days apart.
Note: We are also in an eclipse period, (March 3 - April 7) which can stir everything up, and have a similar influence.
First, plan to do as little as possible on the "4" and "8" days this year, especially if you are a "2", "7", "9", or a "4" or "8" that has negative karmic debt from "4s" and "8s". Secondly, if you notice these days, and particularly the months of April and August bringing in challenging dark energy, just flow with it. If you can stay in the moment, and have an attitude that things will work out, you give them an opportunity to turn around. If you do not react emotionally to an unfortunate circumstance, but rather wait patiently and expect the good, the situation will most of the time change for the better, sometimes right before your eyes. If it is a particularly difficult occurrence, give yourself time to heal, and then open to the possibility of the lesson, gift, message or blessing that accompanied the pain. This will definitely be a year of growth.
Please share if you are noticing particular difficulties or blessings on these "4" and "8" days, or an overall theme of the 15 and 8 influence of this year.
