personal year 2In the last month of year of 2015, we are moving into the seat of endings and also closer to new beginnings. This makes for a good time to contemplate on what we may have achieved, learned, participated in and grown through. Equally this review naturally leads to ideas and hopes for the next year. We may have thoughts about the next step in our journey, or feelings which direct us toward or away from something. In 2016 the universal year is a number 9 (2+0+1+6 = 9), but what is your personal year number?

Tapping into Your Right Timing

When you know what numerological year you are in, you open the door to a great deal of knowledge and wisdom, which can assist you with flowing more naturally with the energies and lessons arising.

Ultimately you will move through your year with certain things happening and opportunities arising, unconsciously or consciously. However knowing what is in store ahead of time can really benefit you, allowing you to recognise and take advantage of correct timing, appropriate decision making and heightened personal growth. Having this knowledge, helps you to place yourself appropriately in the grand scheme of your life. It can lead to acceleration of things on your path.

Work Out Your Personal Year

How to work out your numerology personal year for 2015/2016:

Add your day of birth and month of birth to the current year. For example

21st April +2015

3 + 4 + 2 + 0 + 1 + 5 = 15

Reduce to a single digit, even in the case of master numbers

1+5 = 6 Your personal numerology year for 2015 has been number 6

Therefore in 2016 your personal year will become a number  7. You will move up one number each year, until you reach a number 9 year, in this case you begin in a number  1 the following year.

Once you have worked yours out, read the corresponding number below to find out what has been happening for you over the last twelve months and what is to come.
