Your Personal Cycles
How to Make the Most of Your Personal Years, Months, and Days
What will this day be like? I wonder.
What will my future be? I wonder.
Richard Rodgers & Oscar Hammerstein II
This is the day the LORD has made;
let us rejoice and be glad in it.
Man’s days are determined; you have decreed
the number of his months and have set
limits he cannot exceed.
The day which we fear as our last is but the birthday of eternity.
Everyone is affected by the Universal Year, Universal Month, and Universal Day to some degree. Each of us is also influenced by our Personal Year, our Personal Month, and our Personal Day. The influences of the Personal Years, Months, and Days normally dominate the influences of the Universal Years, Months, and Days. When our Personal Years, Months, and Days are compatible with the Universal Years, Months, and Days, their influences are strengthened. When they are incompatible with the Universal Years, Months, and Days, their influences are weakened.
Your Personal Year
The Personal Year is one of several methods used in numerology for forecasting future trends and is probably one of numerology’s most powerful predictive tools. Personal Years, like Universal Years, come in nine-year cycles. Each nine-year cycle has a beginning and an ending and seven years of development in between. Each year of any nine-year cycle has its own particular vibration. Each Personal Year offers opportunities to develop new skills and talents that are in harmony with the Personal Year’s number. The Personal Year number indicates the numerological vibration for each year of the nine-year-cycle. The numerological vibration of the Personal Year describes the best way to approach that particular year. For example, if you are in a 1-Personal-Year, you are in a year of new beginnings, characterized by independence, individuality, initiative, novelty, self-reliance, spontaneity, and variety. You should focus is on yourself and your personal aspirations.
The Personal Year is simple to calculate and only a little more difficult to interpret. To determine the numerical vibration of any Personal Year, all you need is the day and month of birth and the current year. As with Universal Years, I use the master numbers 11 and 22 when interpreting Personal Years.
To calculate your Personal Year, add your birth day (not birthdate!) plus your birth month and the current calendar year (Universal Year). For example, let’s assume you were born April 20, 1986 and the current year is 2010. Your birth day is 20, and your month is April, the 4th month of the year. Your birth month is simplified by adding the one or two digits—0 and 4—together. 0 + 4 = 4. Your birth day is simplified by adding the one or two digits—2 and 0—together. 2 + 0 = 2. Add the number of your birth day to the number of your birth month. 2 + 4 = 6. Add the four digits …
