Once again the calculation for figuring out your personal year is very simple.
It is your BIRTHDAY plus the MONTH you were born plus the CURRENT YEAR.
For instance my birthday is June 7, 1960 and I want to see what the trends are for the year 2011. The first part of the calculation would be 6 + 7 = 13. This equals 4.
I then reduce the year 2011 to 4 (2+0+1+1=4).
4 and 4 equals 8, so my Personal year for 2011 is 8.
Interpretations of the Numbers
Personal Year 1: Planting Seeds, Rebirth, Beginning of An Era
This is the beginning of a new nine year cycle. Things that have concerned you for the past decade no longer matter at all, in fact you may find your priorities have changed altogether. Disappointments from the past simply don't matter anymore. Any work that you do during this year sets the tone and foundation for the next nine. This is the time to decide what your goals are and act on them. A personal year 1 also often brings new vitality and physical strength.
Personal Year 2: Nurturing, Development, Waiting For The Right Moment
This is a time during which the seeds of change you have planted during a year 1 cycle start to grow. Ideas or attempts to change can be compared to seeds that are nurtured in darkness and just pushing their tendrils up through the soil.
A year 2 is all about patience. It is a year that you should spend finding new allies and kindred spirits and making any necessary personal changes that might be acting as obstacles to your success.
Many people find the year 2 to be challenging as it is often filled with obstacles and delays but by the end any trials you experience will only refine your best qualities.
Personal Year 3: Blossoming, Expansion, Personal and Business Success
This is a very happy year during which you see your efforts begin to show fruit. You can expect delightful surprises and gratification in many areas of your life including business, career, friends and love. You exude such enthusiasm for life that others may find you irresistible. Usually during a year 3 you also find that the burden of responsibility is somehow lifted off your shoulders. The only drawback of this year is that it presents you with so many great opportunities that you might be tempted to take on more than you can handle.
Personal Year 4: Maintenance, Work, Self Control and Responsibility
This is a year of hard work and discipline in which you will be struggling to keep up with all the promises you made during year 3. Many find a year 4 to be very frustrating as responsibilities increase. A common metaphor used to describe this year is "one step forward and two steps back." Although it might seem that you are not making much headway, the whole point of a year four is to create a firm foundation that can support the maturing of your life goals over the next couple of years.
Personal Year 5: Independence, Freedom, Connecting To Others
This year positive opportunities may present themselves on all fronts. Many of the obstacles from previous years seem to slip away. Your hard work is rewarded with more personal freedom and a break from restrictive routines. Travel, adventure or additional education might be part of the overall picture. This year is also good for pursuing new employment opportunities or making new friends. You could also change residence. A drawback of this year is that it can make you feel like not working much or bring a tendency to shirk responsibility.
Personal Year 6: Finding A Soul Mate, Love, Family and Home
A personal year 6 intensifies feelings in existing relationships and enables you to make new emotional connections. Many people find a soul mate during this phase. You are most likely to get married or engaged during this harmonious year. Although this can be a wonderful experience it can also be sobering, as it often presents a choice: to make a commitment or not. You may also prefer to spend more time with family or an intimate circle of friends. A friend that you meet during this cycle is likely to become a friend for life.
Personal Year 7: Reflection, Learning, Self Analysis
Even if you have a reputation as an extrovert, a year 7 is likely to put you in the mood to be alone. You may feel like pursuing your interests, travelling or finding a way to escape from business pressures. A year 7 is like a coccooning stage for the psyche, in which you analyze, reflect and try to shed any behaviors, relationships or patterns that may be preventing your personal growth. This year also favors any kind of self-improvement including surgical operations, seeking counseling, therapy or seeking higher education.
Personal Year 8: Health, Wealth and Abundance
This is a potent year that usually gives all aspects of your life a big positive boost but it especially favors your career and money matters. This is a good year to buy a new home, find a new job or put a business plan into action. While you are in a year 8 others find you more attractive and charismatic and many people find themselves thrust into a position of great authority or power during 8's influence. If you focus on making money, you more than likely will during this prosperous cycle.
Personal Year 9: Death, Taking Personal Inventory, The End of an Era
The number 9 year is one of completion and marks the beginning of the ending of everything you have managed to accomplish during the last decade. This is an uncomfortable year for many individuals, especially if they are unable to embrace change. You may feel restless and things that used to interest you may be replaced by new desires. If you are not able to let go of the past willingly, a situation may manifest that forces you to change. This is the year you reap what you sow.
Now that you have learned how to calculate your personal year, you're about to learn a very sophisticated numerology calculation that is usually only used by professionals. This is called the Life Cycle Number. The Life Cycle Number incorporates the calculation of the Personal Year Number and integrates it with three 28-year cycles to give you an idea of the influences governing an individual's early, adult and later years.
Until next time...
