Numerology Lesson 20 - The Transits

The individual letters of the alphabet combine together to create many different aspects found in a Numerology chart. The letters make up the Expression, Heart's Desire, and the Personality. The Growth Number, First Letter, and First Vowel are also derived from letters. We devote this lesson to the individual letters expressed as Transits.

As we learned in Numerology Lesson Nineteen, the Transits are the letters that make up a name or word. Each letter represents an influence and lasts for an equivalent number of years relative to their numerical placement in the alphabet (reduced to a single digit). Each of the Transits convey a message.

When calculating an Essence Chart, as we did in Numerology Lesson Nineteen, we note which letter in our first, middle, and last names are influencing the current year. (Again, the system will work regardless of how many individual names are within a person's complete name.) The combined vibration equals the Essence, but each individual vibration, or Transit, also represents significant energy influences for the given year. Each Transit has an independent message while it is operating in a given year. The Transits and Essences are equal in their importance to the Personal Year and it is helpful to interpret their energies together.

To refresh your memory, the following chart illustrates the length of time each letter is active as a Transit influence.

Letter Length of
A J S 1 year
B K T 2 years
C L U 3 years
D M V 4 years
E N W 5 years
F O X 6 years
G P Y 7 years
H Q Z 8 years
I R   9 years

Age Chart for Timing of The Transits and Essences

Let's refer back to the chart created in Numerology Lesson Nineteen. By using Barbara's name as an example, we can highlight the active Transits. Note the current year and you'll find which Transits are influencing the year in question. Each Transit lasts between one and nine years as indicated in our previous chart. Their influence starts on the subject's Birthday rather than January 1st like the Personal Year does.

Interpreting The Transits

When interpreting the Transits and Essences, remember to examine their energy in conjunction with the Personal Year. The Personal year is covered in Numerology Lesson Fifteen. Refer to Lesson Nineteen for the Essences.

Note the Transits operating in 1999, in Barbara's example above, are R, N, and E. The same Transits were operating in the previous year. In the year 2000, the E completes and the vibration of L takes its place on November 26, of that year (Barbara's Birthday). The R continues on and completes in the year 2002, while the N carries on until November 26th of the year 2008.

Barbara was is in a 2 Personal Year in 1999. The chart above shows that Barbara began a 19/1 Essence in her 1 Personal Year and the 19/1 Essence duration is 2 years. Now let's combine the energy of initiating new ideas and developing talents (found in the 19/1 Essence) with the Transit influences of R, N, and E.

  • The R brings with it a creative and compassionate period. Ambition is highlighted but confusion can also be present. Sometimes it is hard to sort through all the options possible while sensing and feeling so much. Sometimes delays present themselves while self love is highlighted.

  • The N brings a pleasurable period with exciting events. Travel is indicated. Many changes are possible. Adaptability is enhanced and will bring opportunities. The finances can fluctuate but usually arrive at the right time. A progressive attitude can help lighten responsibilities and attract help in ways not previously thought of.

  • The E brings added freedom and possibly exciting changes. Opportunities for meeting new and interesting people may appear. Opportunity to travel or become involved in a more global approach to life is present. Sometimes this can be an eccentric period of life.

We notice that both the N and the E are 5 energies. This may add a restless quality to Barbara. Sometimes she may find it hard to finish what she has begun. She may even change ideas more frequently than usual. Because she is in a Karmic Essence of a 19/1, she may challenge herself to openly surrender and develop individual talents and interests more fully than in other times of her life. The activity in her Transits may expose her to the world in vaster ways assisting her in attracting opportunity.


Whenever we have a repeated energy, or the same letter appearing as an active Transit more than once, it can attract over or under balanced energy. In addition, when the same numerical vibration is active as a Transit more than once, as illustrated by the N and E in Barbara's chart, out of balance energies may occur. The excessive energy can always be directed by practicing awareness.
