Numerology Lesson 15 - The Personal Year
In previous Numerology lessons we learned
the essentials that describe our character, motivations, and opportunities.
Now let's go one step further and find out how one's individual
nature is effected by the timing of events and cyclic influences
that exist in a Numerology Chart. In Numerology there are two types
of Cyclic Vibrations:
- Key Cyclic Vibrations
- Personal Cyclic
Through the next several lessons these various
vibrations will be the topic of discussion. In this lesson we feature
the Personal Cyclic Vibration of the Personal Year. Since the Personal
Month and Personal Day are part of the Personal Year, we'll show
you how to calculate them as well.
The Personal Year is a vibration that you
can immediately recognize and receive benefit from. Have you ever
noticed how during some years you felt very restless and eager to
begin new undertakings? Or that in other years you felt quite content
to stay at home, work on your environment, and focus on your family.
Then again, some years you might have felt like you were letting
go of much with which you previously identified and that you felt
anticipation about the future. What we are describing is the influence
that The Personal Year can have on you. We really do create our
lives with a certain rhythm and there are optimal times to initiate
The Personal Year's rhythm is based on the
vibrations of 1 - 9. The Personal Year is the most illuminating
when you are facing a decision or wanting to know the probability
of certain events. Each year you work through one of the nine Personal
Years since the Personal Years run concurrently. They start on January
1st and continue through Dec 31st. At the end of the year you begin
the next Personal Year. For example, if you are in a 9 Personal
Year this year, on January 1st you will enter a 1 Personal Year.
Just as we have an individual Personal Year
vibration, there is also a Universal Year that describes the general
planetary vibration during the entire year. The Universal Year runs
with our calendar year. It is quite simple to calculate:
- Add the numbers of the current year
- Reduce them to a single digit from 1 to
Sometimes in a 2 year the Master Number of
11 will be present. Be sure and add correctly to make sure you get
the correct number. The same is true in a 4 personal year, the Master
Number of 22 may be present.
Universal Year Chart
Using the Year of 1999 for our example:
1 + 9 + 9 + 9 = 28
2 + 8 = 1 Universal Year
Using the Year 2000 as our example:
|2 + 0 + 0 + 0 = 2
|2 Universal Year
Personal Year Chart
Now that we know the Universal Year, we are
ready to calculate our Personal Year. To figure out what your Personal
Year is, add your month and day of birth to the Universal Year.
|Birth Month + Day
of Birth + Universal Year = Personal Year
Personal Year Vibrations
The Personal Year embraces each number's individual
qualities and applies them as the energy needed to initiate, cultivate,
expand, progress, and eventually reap the rewards of a cycle of
experience. The individual energies within each number express themselves
in a natural organic rhythm that cultivates human potential and
growth. To refresh your memory Numerology
Lesson One describes the numbers in greater detail.
It makes sense that a 1 would lead our experience
and a 9 would conclude, holding within it the knowledge, compassion,
and understanding gained from a full cycle of experience. Once we
conclude a full cycle through the 9 Personal Years, we start all
over again. The following definitions will give you some guidance
in how to apply each number's energies to the direction contained
in a Personal Year.
1 Personal Year
This is a new beginning time. Embrace courage,
openness, and initiate new ideas. Energy is behind you supporting
new directions, self definition, and new ideas. Follow your dreams
and begin cultivating what really motivates you. It is not a time
to wait around as you could miss out on what this year has to offer.
You really are setting the pace for the next nine years.
2 Personal Year
This year requires cooperation, patience,
and continued development of what you began last year. Time is needed
to put everything into motion. Continue to focus on your motivations
and step by step progress so that what you began last year can further
develop. Relationships are also an area of focus throughout the
3 Personal Year
This year wants to expand your life and focus.
It brings increased activity and recognition. Enthusiasm moves into
the picture. You may find yourself quite busy with more social interaction.
Seeds can be planted in the hearts and minds of those around you.
If you become confused by too many directions, pick the one that
excites you the most. Expression and Creativity are highlighted.
4 Personal Year
Organization is key in this year including
continued development and focus. You may feel a little restricted
in some ways but keep in mind the reward ahead from you efforts.
This is a foundation year and asks you to finish details where continued
support is needed.
5 Personal Year
This year promises rewards and progress from
what you developed the previous four years. Often opportunities
come your way to advance in various directions. The year asks for
flexibility, and may bring some risks, but rewards are what the
year wishes to bring. Sometimes relationships at a distance and
travel are highlighted.
6 Personal Year
Relationships with family, friends, and co-workers
is key this year. The spotlight shines more on domestic matters.
Love interests are often highlighted as well as the passion that
connects us to our creativity. There is also a focus on self-love,
connection, and nurturing.
7 Personal Year
This is somewhat of a sabbatical time. Much
is gained through reflection and personal refinement. You may want
to ask yourself some important questions like what your Life Purpose
is and what you want your life to be like. It is a time for seeking
a deeper understanding into your inner nature. Solitude is often
needed in order to quiet your mind and get in touch with what really
matters to you.
8 Personal Year
After the reflection of last year, it is time
to move from the inner world into the outer world and manifest in
greater ways what you have been working toward during the last seven
years. Material issues, career, and worldly accomplishments come
to the forefront. Organization is again important and monetary gain
9 Personal Year
Much like the 7 Personal Year the 9 invites
you to pay special attention to your inner world. You have graduated
from a cycle of experience. It is a time for completing many areas
of experience so that you can move freely into the next cycle ahead
without carrying forward outgrown or unneeded baggage. There is
a letting go of the old as anticipation of future possibilities
exists within you. Gratefulness and compassion are especially important
at this time.
11 Personal Year
Unless Master Numbers are noted in the Core
Aspects of the individual's chart, the 11 Personal Year is usually
approached as a 2 Personal Year. In the case where the 11 is embraced,
it would benefit an individual to utilize their intuitive, spiritual,
and inspirational talents to direct their affairs. Contribution
to humanity and inspiring others is usually part of the agenda.
22 Personal Year
Again, unless Master Numbers are evident in
the Core Aspects of an individual's chart, it is quite difficult
to approach the year as a 22 would indicate. Therefore, the 4 would
direct the energies. If the 22 is embraced, you can expect much
to be accomplished since this Master Number wants to create on a
large scale. Like the 11, the 22 requires a certain devotion to
the well-being of others and the goodness of humanity. A universal
approach is necessary to fully engage in this Master Number vibration.
Personal Year Example
|November 26th + Current Universal
|11 + 2 6 + 1999
|11 + 8 + 1 = 20/2 Personal Year
Using the example of Barbara's Birthday, we
note that she is in a 2 Personal Year. By referring to the Personal
Year descriptions, we know that she is in her second year of a new
cycle which began last year. The best way to direct energies this
year is to further develop the ideas that she aspired to last year.
Patience and time are her tools along with the cooperation of others.
A 2 Personal Year also highlights friendships and relationships.
When doing a chart, always note when the Personal Year corresponds
with a Core Element or any other major element. Because Barbara's
Destiny is an 11/2, this year may further her along with opportunities
that are part of her most beneficial life experiences. This is a
splendid time to enjoy a more relaxed pace. The 3 Personal Year
that follows will certainly pick up the pace!
Personal Months and Personal Days
Within our Personal Year we also have Personal
Months and Personal Days. A Personal Month or Personal Day is similar
in vibration, however its meaning is tailored to the actions of
the particular number represented for the month or day. In other
words, you would apply the same qualities that are noted in the
examples previously mentioned to a monthly or daily experience.
Personal Month Chart
It is simple to calculate your Personal Month.
Now that you know what your Personal Year is, add it to the current
month and you have your Personal Month vibration. We will use the
month of May and Barbara's Personal Year for our example.
|May + 2 Personal Year
5 + 2 = 7 Personal Month
Because Barbara is in a 7 Personal Month
in May, we know that the month requires deeper reflection and analysis
to further her along in her 2 Personal Year. During the month of
May, refining ideas and projects, continued personal development,
and educating herself in areas that represent her goals will add
to the development of her 2 Personal Year and this cycle of her
Personal Day Chart
Each day of the month has its own Personal
Day vibration for each individual. To find a Personal Day, add the
Personal Month to the calendar day in question. Again using Barbara
for an example, and the random date of May 13th, we would find her
in an 11 Personal Day. Remember to apply the Master Number comments
|Personal Month + Current Day Digit
|7 Personal Month + (Current Day
= Example: May 13th) 13/4 = 11 Personal Day
This day is a good one for spiritual
pursuit and self care. It is also a grand day to pay attention to
intuition and creativity. Perhaps an opportunity will present itself
to help a friend or share a delightful experience. It could also
be a day that requires a little patience in some ways, because it
is a more internal day than one that is externally demanding.
The vibration found in your Personal Day can
help you determine when it is a good time to initiate a direction,
sleep in and take it easy, help others, travel, rest, study, etc.
Of course, planning our life wholly by what is represented
in the Personal Days isn't realistic. However, we can get a good
idea of how our energy might flow each day and how to best utilize
the energies available.
Firstly, note and pay attention to your Personal
Year. The force of the year is best realized in the months between
March and September. September is the month where the Personal Year
will be most evident. Why? Because September is a 9 (the 9th month)
and when you add 9 to any other number, it will always digit back
down to the other number. Check it out! Therefore, September will
mirror the vibration of whatever Personal Year you are in. Then
the last three months of each year begin to prepare you for the
coming new year.
Secondly, note your current Personal
Month. This will help you plan and time various stages throughout
the year. Lastly, note your Personal Day. For example, on some days
you will need extra time to reflect throughout the day, where other
days you will feel eager to accomplish and get things done.

Next Numerology Lesson
Now that we understand the timing of our Personal
Year--including the Personal Month and Personal Day--in Numerology
Lesson Sixteen we will apply this knowledge to four major Key
Cyclic Vibrations in our life. These cycles, called Pinnacles, are
essentially road maps. They express four major phases of living
and indicate the direction you will travel during these phases.
The Pinnacles have much to offer, so remember to investigate the
next lesson in order to discover what is ahead for you.
