Your personal year cycle is like your inner season. Each cycle serves a purpose and it's great for understanding your own energy for the season ahead, patterns and for seeing how cyclical we all are.
Nature is a great example of how seasons change, and how there's a time and a place for everything. There are months that are better for planting a seed and there are months that are better for harvesting. Like Lao Tzu said “Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.”
Just like nature, you and I have cycles and you can find out what these are through Numerology.
Following these natural cycles will restore your own life to its natural rhythm, and help you make peace with your present emotions.
Every universal year has its own energy that we experience as a collective but your personal year is focused on your own energy. Each number represents a theme that will play out during that year.
Within each year cycle, there are also month cycles. There are 9 years within each cycle and 108 monthly cycles within those years.
To calculate your personal year cycle, you need the following 3 things:
For example, Let's say today is January 31, 2023 but your birthday is on November 10th. This means that the universal year is 2022 because that's the year of your last birthday.
Next, we reduce the numbers to a single digit (unless you have a master number in your birthday which is 11 and 22. In that case, you don't need to reduce those numbers).
Let's say your birthday is November 10th.
Next, add up the numbers after reducing the day, month and universal year.
Personal Year = 1+11+6 = 18 = 1+8 = 9
In this case, your personal year is #9
If your birthday already passed in 2023, use the universal year #7 (2+0+2+3 = 7).
Here's what to expect on your personal year:
