I have been interested in the meaning of numbers since childhood. My curiosity was aroused when I realized that my family always gave gifts in multiples of $18 regardless of whether it was to honor the memory of someone or to celebrate a happy occasion. I didn’t think of it as a superstition. It was just an accepted, unquestioned part of my reality. Eventually I learned that in Hebrew, 18 means life and thus is considered a lucky number. This belief stems from Jewish numerology, called Gematria. Regular numerology, adds the numbers to get a single digit, 9, which is a humanitarian number or the brotherhood of mankind. Because 2017 adds up to the single digit of 1, the universe is at the beginning of a 9-year cycle. This new vibration affects us all, regardless of your own personal year.
