Personal Year Numerology

Most people know that you can use numerology to analyze character, abilities, psychological interests and destinies but few people are also aware that you can use it to predict life cycles just by analyzing your personal year number in numerology.

In numerology the life cycle is nine years repeated, with a Year 1 personal year number signifying a rebirth and the personal year number 9 in numerology representing the end or an era or phase in one’s life.

Depending on what year it is you could be going through anyone of nine personal year cycles including a personal year 3 which is a year in which you are likely to find creative success or a personal year 6, which is the year when you are most likely to find a soul mate or a new best friend.

Benefits of knowing your personal year number

The value of this kind of numerology and knowing your personal year number is that it can tell you what would be a waste of time and allows you to focus during a particular personal year cycle. For instance if you are going through a personal year 7, which is better suited to self improvement and educational improvements you are better off to focus on yourself rather than finding a soulmate, which is best accomplished in a personal year 6.

Have ever had one of those years where suddenly you made a lot of money and you could do no wrong? In that case you were more than likely experiencing a personal year number 8 which is all about prosperity. In fact if you are entering a personal year number 8 that would be an indicator that it is time to ask for a raise, launch your own business or buy property or investments.

Another type of year that stands out for many is a personal year 9. In this cycle it seems that everything that you are not making use of anymore is simply taken away. It is the number of revolution – the process of decay before a rebirth.

A personal year number that might feel as if you are just treading water, might be a number 2 year for you. When you go through this year it feels like you don’t get much accomplished no matter what you do!

How Personal Year Numerology is Calculated

To calculate your personal year number reduce the month and day of your birth to a single digit. Then add this to the year you want to examine (2005)

The Personal Year is helpful in evaluating the trend of the coming calendar year. For a clue as to what lies ahead in the coming year, the current year or any year calculate your personal year using this formula:

First, reduce the month and day of your birth, your birthday, to a single digit.

Let’s use George W. Bush as an example. He was born 7/6/1948.

We add together the month and the day of birth which in President Bush’s case = 13. This is reduced to the single digit of 4. If your month and day years reduce down to one of the master numbers (11 or 22) then reduce them down to 2 or 4 respectively.

We are interested in looking at George Bush’s current year, which is 2005.

Your next step would be to reduce 2005 down to a single digit. 2005 reduces to 7.

Now add the reduction of President Bush’s month and year which is the number 4 to the reduction of the current year which equal 7: 4+7= 11

Note that even though 11 is a Master Number, in the case of Personal Years we keep reducing to a single digit, so George Walker Bush is currently going through a personal year of two (1+1=2).

What does a personal year number 2 mean to George Bush?

A year 2 is a year that is all about patience. It is a time that should be spent finding new allies and kindred spirits as the previous year was a time of new beginnings. Bush accomplished the conquering of Iraq two years ago when he was going through a year nine which is about the end of an era.

A year 2 is not about having a fun or frivolous time. It is about nurturing ideas that are still in their youthful stage. It is also about waiting for the right time to act. A lot of these trends are expressed in the President’s speeches lately as he asks Americans to appreciate his efforts when it comes to rebuilding Iraq and providing aid to the victims of hurricane Katrina.

In essence a year 2 is all about timing – good timing and bad timing.

We can also use personal year calculations to look at present and past years as well. For instance during the World Trade Center Attack in 2001, George Bush was going through the a Personal Year 7. The number seven represents analysis, secrecy and genius.

Once again the calculation for figuring out your birth year is very simple.

It is your BIRTHDAY plus the MONTH you were born plus the CURRENT YEAR.

It might be a good time to learn more about your life path now that you understand the personal year numerology cycle…
