The Personal Year Number.

### This is where Numerology gets reeeealllly interesting.

So you’ve worked out your Life Path Number. Probably got to grips with your Destiny and Soul Urge Numbers. Maybe you’ve even looked into your Personality and Birthday Numbers?

These are all really great personal keys. Indicators of the kind of person you are, where you’re headed, and where your deepest, spiritual desires might look like. They’re numbers that stay with you. Always.

Yet when it comes to the Personal Year Numbers, these describe how your personal numerology interacts with universal numerology. These numbers are dynamic, and they forge a path for you that’s more about interdependence, than simply going it alone.

Calculating your Personal Year Number is easy when you know how!

## HOW TO CALCULATE YOUR PERSONAL YEAR NUMBER

• Start by writing down the number of your day of birth.
• Then, write the number of your month of birth.
• Now, add them both together.
• Next, add the Universal Year Number to this.

**NOTE: If your result is a Master Number (11, or 22) then don’t reduce any further.

### Calculating the Universal Year Number

This is easy too – simply add together each single-digit making up the current calendar year.

So 2020 is 2 + 0 + 2 + 0 = 4. 2020 is a 4 Universal Year.

### Here’s a quick example:

Someone born on the 29th January would do this calculation: 2 + 9 + 1 = 12, and 1 + 2 = 3. Then add 3 to the current Universal Year Number, which is 4: 3 + 4 = 7.

This person is in a 7 Personal Year.

## The Achievement Number

As an added bonus, working out Personal Year numbers also opens up an additional part of your Numerology chart – one you may not be familiar with: The Achievement Number. Head HERE to find out more (and trust us.. you’ll want to know!)

## WHY are Personal year Numbers Important?

One of the foundational pieces in all of numerology, is the concept of cycles. The numbers 1 – 9 are an evolution of progress (which isn’t to say that one number is ‘better’ or more advanced than another). Whether it’s in manifestation, personal growth, and maturity, or even the creative process, the shift through distinctly different energy vibrations is there.

And nowhere is it truer than with personal years.

Yet because even a single year is such a long time, let alone a nine-year-cycle, we often fail to recognize this energetic evolution as our lives progress. So if you can start to track your years according to your numerology, then you get to easily see where YOU are in this cycle. And the best bit? It’s personal. It’s tailor-made numerology!

Once you know which of the personal year numbers you’re currently in, you can set aligned goals, make the kind of plans you’re likely to achieve and avoid those you may struggle with. Or if you are facing struggles, then your year number could indicate why.

But how DO you know what a number holds?

## 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,11,22

### PERSONAL YEAR 1

A Personal 1 Year is the beginning of a new 9-year cycle! Its energy is great for starting new projects and taking risks.

What this year means

The theme for this year is confidence and courage. Step into a whole new world of fresh beginnings and burst out from the chrysalis.

Be optimistic and have faith in the future. This is the start of a new cycle, so set the future in motion on a positive note!

The best way to fulfill your goals this year is to dive into the details and look at the practical side of things. Make your duties and responsibilities your top priority.

Although this is a time to try out everything new, you should do things carefully. Take risks but risk smartly! Save your energy and dedicate time for work and rest. If you multitask and do things all at once, you may end up tired, exhausted, and resentful. In the end, you may find yourself going on a cruel down spiral to emotional drama. Stop! Because the name of the game this year is rationality.

### PERSONAL YEAR 3

A Personal 3 Year is time for self-expression! Its energy is playful and optimistic, making this a great time for any kind of creative pursuits and socializing.

What this year means

Enjoyment is the overarching theme of a personal year number 3, and you will likely get many opportunities to have fun. As a result, your more important goals may fall by the wayside because you’re out partying. The enjoyment you will be getting from these social activities are short-lived and will not serve your long-term interests. This year is a good time to focus on friendships, both old and new. Expect yourself to be more expressive or talkative when the personal year number 3 is up. Remember to maintain connections with the people that you meet because they can be very important for you in the future.

Because the energy of a personal year number 3 tends to focus on enjoyment and leisure, you need to stick to a plan and balance your responsibilities with social activities.

You will gain more enjoyment when you know that you are doing steps to build your future rather than randomly having fun. Time is gold, and you should manage it well and dedicate a schedule for each important activity. If you are especially moody or emotional, try to avoid making major financial decisions.

Avoid scattering your energies since it will do little to chip away monumental tasks; instead, focus on one thing at a time, and it will get you to the finish line faster.

### PERSONAL YEAR 4

A Personal 4 Year is when it’s time to knuckle down to some hard work! Building structure and stability in life is often the priority.

What this year means

The personal year number 4 calls on you to make commitments in your work and personal life. You may feel overburdened and limited at this time and conclude that things are becoming complicated and causing your frustration.

The best strategy to do is to ask and accept help since it will improve things. Apply a system and order when you take care of business so you can do every task efficiently.

Avoid being impulsive at all costs because it will slow down your progress. This year is a great time for building and perfecting skills, ideas, or methods. So, take advantage of the year’s vibrations by being more detail-oriented. In the end, you will be building a more stable and secure future. Focus on your tasks because this will be the most productive year ever. Put your career and business at the forefront of your priorities and make smart choices. If you are unsure about financial decisions, get some coaching or training first.

If you have always wanted to do major changes towards a healthier lifestyle, now is the time to act on it. However, do make careful choices and avoid drastic transformations.

Overall, this is not a good year for travel.

Keep your mind open to ideas and opportunities because this may serve a purpose in helping you reach your goals. This is a great time to make lifestyle changes and to give yourself a major makeover.

Relax this year and trust your intuition to guide you towards the success of your plans.

Although this is a good time for solitary pursuits, do take time to enjoy life and be social with like-minded individuals.

Trust that you will be guided in your endeavors, whether it will come from your inner voice or actual help from others. Be ready to manage your money and finances well this year because you may encounter some hurdles. The key to making it this year is by being cooperative and not confrontational.

Shed the old life, and when the spirit forces move you: drop the baggage.

Emotional drama rather than practical reasons may hamper cooperative efforts in the professional sphere. This may be a stark pattern throughout the year, but you can overcome it by making a sincere effort to be systematic and rational in all the issues you will be facing. Be logical and listen to your head when you feel you are headed for an emotional roller coaster.

When you are compassionate and practical, huge success and fulfillment will be in store for you in the year ahead. When you embark on something new and fresh, the universe will smile down at you, so it may be a good year to travel and explore uncharted territory.
