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!

Simply follow the formula below:

  • 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? Here’s a quick rundown…
