Numerology Calculator – The Personal Year

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, calculate your personal year using this formula: 

  1. First, reduce the month and day of your birth, your birthday, to a single digit. Using my birthday for example, May 24th, that single digit would be 11 If your month and day total comes to 11 or 22, the master numbers, in this instance, reduce the number to 2 and 4, respectively.
  2. Next, reduce the year for which you are making the calculation to a single digit. The year 2015 would become 8.
  3. So we add 8 for the year to my birthdate number 2 = 10 equals a one.
  4. We added the single digit representing our birthday to the single digit representing the year. Thus, 2015 is a 1 personal year for me.

These numbers all have significance and will reveal to you the theme of your upcoming year. Astrology is far more detailed, but we aren’t there yet. In my online Astrology school, you will begin to learn the language of each sign and planet so that when you get to the advanced level, you can interpret what cycle you are in — as determined by the stars.

The personal year outlines the trend of events for the entire year.

Numerology Reading

Numerology and Astrology work as a team. So let’s start with the number and see how it relates to you.

Personal Year 1  ARIES flavors

Let’s start again…a brand new day

The first sign is Aries, so this number is related to beginnings. Brand new energy.

This year is the beginning of a new cycle for you. Life will now take on new challenges that will follow up in the next nine years in your life. All cycles in numerology go in 9-year cycles. (Astrology works with a 7-year cycle you will learn later.)

This year is a time to clarify your goals and to act on them. Hard work may be necessary. Your physical strength will available to you — it’s like you are on fire.

If you are unable or unwilling to answer the call to change and make the move in your life that appears necessary now, your prospects may be delayed until the next cycle begins in nine years. So let go and or begin anew this year.

New goals should be clearly set and worked toward. This will be fairly easy for you to do because most of the problems and disappointments of the past should have been left behind last year… leaving the way open for new challenges. This is a great time — use it to its full advantage.

Personal Year 2  TAURUS & LIBRA flavors

Tea time, slow down, and ask if you can look at cooperation and partnership.

A personal year 2 is a wait and see time. Your energy slows down compared to last year. You may find yourself in the background working on the growth of your dream you started last year. Do not force your energy. It is a time for cooperation and building relationships that will benefit you in the future; a year for reworking details. Be prepared for delays and detours, so you can learn patience. You will be partnering with others and feeling receptive and supported in a big way.

This year may require you addressing your emotional sensitivities. Time to improve your abilities to work with those close to you. This can be difficult for you if you have chiefly worked alone in the past.

Keep calm, cool, and pleasant. You may experience a degree of nervous tension during this period thinking you ‘should’ be doing more. The two year can brings emotional extremes including depression, highs, and lows. Deep relationships with a person of the opposite sex (including marriage) may be more apt to occur during a 2 year. If married this is a great time to spend time in devotion and concern for the partnership.

Personal Year 3  GEMINI flavor

Studying, learning, socializing…people people everywhere.

This is a social, happy year. You will want to check up on old friends and broaden your social circle to include some new ones. Romance, love and friendships may grow. You are likely to be more sociable and the bridle of responsibility will seem to be loosened a bit. Careful you don’t scatter your energies or undertake too many things at the same time. You can safely take some time off to enjoy yourself, but keep your goals in mind. A 3 personal year is a good time to study, learn, take classes, write and teach. 

This is may not be a very good year for your finances…your chart can look further into this, but the next year corrects whatever may have been scattered. Great time for friendships and reading, studying and working with computers and the internet.

Personal Year 4  CANCER & CAPRICORN flavor

Hard work and slow, but steady progress.

The previous year frivolity will now be dealt with. A year of digging in and hoeing, a reestablishment of self-control. This can be a frustrating year, when considerable effort fails to produce concrete results. One step forward and two back may seem to be the case because this is the number of grounding and patience. It is a time to get organized and bring yourself down to Earth. Responsibilities will increase. Health and diet should be carefully looked at, as your health may need attention. This is a time to reconsider whatever you started in your one year and see if it’s viable and stable enough to endure the next cycle.

Personal Year 5  LEO flavor

Change has arrived and time to travel and have fun.

Five is a change number. You may notice major change in your life. Horizons are expanded and growth is easy. Social activities are expanded. This is a year that has brought/will bring excitement and adventure. This is a time for feeling loose and free; for moving away from old routines in a constructive way. If you became bogged down during this past year, now is the time to seek out new directions.

Your ability to do detail work is limited now, you may want to travel or make changes that require you let go of the small stuff. In all, this a free-wheeling year that is liable to bring major changes to your life; your career, your family situation, your residence.

Personal Year 6  VIRGO & TAURUS flavor

Love, Family, Home and Responsibility

This is a year where dreams can come true — from relationships to work. 6 brings on increasing responsibilities and a deepening concern for family, loved ones, and close friends. This is not really a year for major accomplishments, but rather a time to handle your connections with people and to identify what really matters. Endeavors will seem to be moving so very slowly throughout this year. You should expect to have a very good year with family, domestic, and romantic matters. Your emotional interchange with those who are close to you should be at its very best during this particular year. The important thing is to be willing to accept a slower pace and be sure to enjoy the peace and harmony that the 6 personal year brings.

Personal Year 7  LIBRA & VIRGO flavors

A time for analysis and understanding

It’s time to go in. An introspective year, a period of some pause and reflection. This year is a great time to study astrology and spirituality. It will be good for you to spend time alone or in quiet activities, as free from others. This is a good year to reflect and go inward to study your psyche and others. This will not tend to be a year of action, but rather a year of development. It can be an expensive year where you are pouring out money to stabilize and settle a new study.

One of the most profitable activities is that of study and writing, for your ability to think clearly, analyze, and integrate your thoughts is peaked now. Your capacity for research and understanding is at its very best. It would not be unusual for you to take on an appearance of coolness and detachment during a 7 year. You may want to retreat and take a time out. Perhaps you can find the time to gain more education, or simply spend free time in reflection and meditation.

Personal Year 8  SCORPIO & SAGITTARIUS flavors

Attainment and capital gains

This is the power year. Coming after a very slow and introspective period (the personal year 7), you may start seeing strong reflections of your ambitions. This is a year of decisions and achievements. Activity is your keynote now, and you will find yourself very much involved and occupied. Opportunities for advancement and recognition for past and current work is likely to come about during this year. It is easy for you to branch out and expand in business. Your power and status potential is at a peak of the nine years personal cycle that concludes at the end of the next year.

Personal Year 9 PISCES flavor

Reflection and Reaching Out

This is a year of completions, endings, and a time when you are apt to take inventory of the many factors in your life, some of which you are no doubt proud of, and others that you may want to change. This is a year of endings, letting go, and breaking habits.. This should be a time when you become more involved with others. Your spirituality is calling your name. You may become aware of a desire to be closer to nature, meditation or music. A lot of things that you have been working for should come to completion during this year. Old friends may reappear and the completion of lost relationships or family issues that needed for a long to be completed. This is a great time to study on spiritual matters and go deep into your purpose and lessons.
