Everything in the world is subject to cyclic law. The earth revolves on its axis every twenty-four hours, creating day and night. It travels around the Sun every 365 and one-fourth days, resulting in the changing of seasons. Seeds sprout into trees, grow large, then wither and die. Similarly with human beings and all other forms of life. No one knows why this is so, yet we all know it happens. We human beings have our cycles, but unlike the earth and the trees and the seasons, we can control, to a large extent, the course of our existence. We need no longer be slaves to the whims of fate. Of all living things, man alone is unique in being able to think and act freely. Unfortunately, the majority of us voluntarily choose to act as the pawns of fate, rather than taking an active hand in our own affairs. It is within all of us to become the leaders of our fate, the master of our own destiny. By understanding the law of cycles, we can "swim through the current" rather than fight against it.
As said earlier, everything in the world has a cycle of existence entirely its own. Just as our lives are divided into periods of seven years, so each year of our lives is made up of seven periods. Each period comprises of approximately fifty-two days. The first period commences from the date of your birthday. Each one of these periods has its own characteristics, offering you different possibilities, opportunities that can be availed of, or problems that can be solved.
Given below are the characteristics of the seven periods that make up your personal life cycle. Here is the technique to work out your life cycle.
Get a calendar and starting with your birthday, count off 52 days. Thus, if you're born on October 15, your first cycle will end of December 6 of the same year. Circle both these dates. In the same way, work out the chart for the entire year. It will tell you at a glance in what period you are.
Here is the characteristics of each of the seven periods:
Life Cycle, First Period:
A period of opportunity. It is the best time to advance your interests with others who may have power and influence to help you. This is the time to ask favours, to seek employment or loans or business concessions, to form partnerships or to make investments. This is also the best time to advance yourself or to build up your credit standing or your reputation. This is the best time to push yourself forward with determination so far as your name, integrity and honour are concerned.
Life Cycle, Second Period:
The Second Period is distinctly different. Its the best time to plan short journeys or trips of immediate importance. Its an excellent time for moving about, if necessary. It is a period propitious for changes that can be started and finished within the period itself. In a business way, it is a good period for movable things such as freight, cargoes, automobiles, train, public conveyance or even lectures and performances which may move from place to place. It also presents excellent opportunities for those dealing with liquids, milk, water, chemicals, gasoline, oil and such other products. This is also a good period for people associated with hotels, restaurants, car rentals and other similar services. One, however, should not, plan a change of business or start a new career or make any permanent change during this period. Long term contracts and other agreements should not be entered into. It is an unfavorable period to borrow or lend money, to start the construction of a building or to enter into any project requiring a substantial investment. It is also an unfavorable period to speculate in the stock market or to gamble in any form.
Life Cycle, Third Period:
This period requires that you exercise discrimination and good judgment. It usually brings a great inflow of energy which makes you want to do great and important things. If directed carefully, this can be the best time of year to improve your health or to build up your business or to do anything that requires the expenditure of energy. However, good judgment is needed. You will be tempted to undertake projects which have no possibility of success or which may take so long to develop that you'll have to abandon them before completion. But this a great time to overcome obstacles that have blocked progress in the past. It is a good time for dealing with things that require energy such as iron and steel, electrical machinery, cutlery, sharp instruments and fire. It is also a particularly good period to oppose competitors or deal with enemies who have previously been obstacles in your path. It is an unfavorable period for both men and women to try and deal with women. But, on the other hand, it is an excellent period for women to appeal to men when desiring favours or help in business or social matters. Arguments and troubles should be avoided. But if you've something to sell that can be sold in one forceful interview, then this is the best period.
Life Cycle, Fourth Period:
In this period, the mental and spiritual nature is stimulated. It is an excellent period for writing books, producing plays, making plans for all matters requiring imagination and quick thinking and the ability to express your thoughts lucidly. Your mind will be filled with new ideas which will come very rapidly, so it is imperative that you grasp them quickly before they are forgotten or pushed aside by new thoughts. You'll be optimistic in this period, but somewhat nervous and restless. This is to be expected since your imagination will be highly charged. It is a good period to deal with literary people, writers, journalists, book or magazine publishers. But be careful to read all legal documents very carefully because deception is possible. Most great losses through robbery or deception or misunderstood legal situation occur in this period and you should take precautions to protect yourself. However, it is a good time for study and for gaining information and knowledge. But it is not favourable for marriages, hiring help or buying homes, business and land.
Life Cycle, Fifth Period:
This is the period in which it is possible for you to achieve your greatest success in your personal affairs. This is the time in your yearly cycle when your interests will expand and your prosperity will increase. Your mind will, likewise, become a more effective instrument, sharper and clearer, and you will become more open in your relations with others, move with more confidence and sympathy. This is the best period for dealing with the law, with lawyers, judges, the courts, government officials, prominent professional men and people of wealth. It is also a good period to begin new ventures that may take time to grow, to plan large business negotiations or to undertake long journeys. It is particularly good for collecting money due or for speculations in stock or real estate, but be sure to avoid every negotiation that is not strictly legitimate. Also avoid any dealings in cattle or meat products or with marine affairs.
Life Cycle, Sixth Period:
This is the best time in your yearly cycle for rest, relaxation and amusement. This doesn't mean that business will not prosper. On the contrary, all good and legitimate business will continue with almost as much success as in the last period. Now is the time to make long or short trips for business matters that touch upon art, music, literature, sculpture, perfumes, flowers and personal adornments. It is a fortunate period for a man to seek preferment or favours or business agreement or co-operation from a woman, (just as the third period is better for women to obtain such favours from men). It is the best period to buy stocks or bonds for investment and to employ people.
Life Cycle, Seventh Period:
This is the most critical period in your yearly cycle. During these last fifty two days the elements in your life that are no longer needed gradually make way for those which are newer and better. Often this will cause distress and a sense of loss and may tempt you to foolish actions and decisions. Remember, it is a period of seeming devolution which always preceeds a period of evolution and new opportunity
Take advantage of the momentum in this period to rid yourself of the old and unwanted, but be sure to exercise good judgment. If there has been something that seems about to end, let it do so. But do not deliberately break ties or destroy relationships that are still alive and valuable. For the reasons mentioned, your mind is likely to become despondent and you'll be easily discouraged. Remember you're being influenced by the quality of this period. Do not permit pessimism to wrap your judgment or inhibit your decisions. The qualities of this period exert very subtle influences and it is necessary that you be much more alert than normally in appraising your feelings and your reactions to external influences. In the Fourth Period, it is advisable to seize immediately upon your ideas and make quick decisions. Now the reverse is true. Impulsiveness will bring disaster. Be careful in all judgments and try to postpone every major decision until the next period. Howeverm this is a good period for dealing with older people and those who, by their very nature, must consider every action most carefully. It is also an excellent time for inventing things or for dealing in inventions or for applying for patents and copyrights. In this period you'll have success in dealing in real estate, mines, minerals and all other things that find their source in the earth or in hidden place. On the other hand, it is definitely the least favourable time of the year to start anything new or launch a new business or to make expenditures in old one.
These are your personal life cycles
To a certain degree the influences of each period will overlap the periods before and after it. It is advisable, therefore, to be careful in all judgments and actions on the last two and the first two days of each period.
If you would like some proof as to the reliability of the above cycles, simply find out the dates of your seventh cycle (i.e. your last cycle). Then check back over the last ten or fifteen years. It is certain that your worst frustrations, disappointments and trials happened during these two dates. Go ahead. Try it. The informations given above has been arrived at after a thorough study of cycles extending over many hundreds of years.
It is all true, so true that many people call it miraculous.
