Numerology has been used since ancient times to explain, interpret and map time.
In our modern world, most of us have lost our sense of the magic that surrounds numbers, instead being taught in our schools that numbers are mere containers for quantity.
The opposite couldn’t be truer!
Numbers are energetic frequency holders. They contain archetypal energy and transmit information which is as old as the Earth. Numerology seeks to decode and use this information, and here at Numerologist.com, we aim to bring this ancient art to you, living through these modern times.
In much the same way that astrology describes the planetary influences that affect our lives, within and without, Numerology describes the numerological influences that also affect us.
These influences could come from your date of birth, your phone number or significant repeating numbers which keep showing up in your life. Or they could be the numerological associations which correspond with the letters in your name or other words in your life.
One of the most fundamental ways that Numerologists are able to track the shifting vibrational energies which affect us all, is through the calendar. On a micro level, these energies shift every day – when the numbers of the date change, so does the overarching energetic expression of our planet (which is ever rippling – the date is never the same everywhere across the globe!) But most noticeably, there is a much bigger numerological shift at the start of each new calendar year. (it’s worth noting that here at Numerologist, we base all of our calculations on the Gregorian calendar).
Every new year, this shift in numbers creates a huge vibrational shift, and it’s one that we all share the influence of. But how you, personally are affected each calendar year by this change in energy can be described by your Personal Year Number.
Knowing your Personal Year Number, and the cycle it’s a part of can be a great help in interpreting and navigating the many changes happening within and around you. It is akin to reading the weather report before planning a trip – knowing whether it’s going to be hot, dry, windy or whether you’ll be confronted by torrential rain will affect how you prepare and what activities you plan to do!
This is because the various energies contained within the fadic cycle of 1-9 and the master numbers 11, 22 (and for some, 33) are each conducive to different kinds activities and behaviors. There are times to act, to wait, to change, to express, to collaborate, to listen, to explore or retreat. There is a season – and a year – for everything!
When does my Personal Numerology Year Start?
It’s a question that a lot of people ask:
“Does my Personal Year Number begin on January 1st OR on my birthday each year?”
And although at first it may seem confusing, the answer is always on January 1st, when the calendar year changes. This is because it’s the calendar year that we are using in the calculation, so this is the number – and the energy – we must take into account, and merge with our own, for the next 12 months.
How To Find Your Personal Year Number:
To calculate your Personal Year Number, you will first need to know what the current Universal Year is. Calculate this by simply adding together each digit of the current year until you reach a single digit.
Calculating the Universal Year Number – An Example:
I’m writing this in 2018, so 2 + 0 + 1 + 8 = 11. As 11 is a Master Number, it doesn’t need to be reduced further.
In 2019 the sum will read: 2 + 0 + 1 + 9 = 12 and 1 + 2 = 3. So 2019 will be a 3 Universal Year.
Next, add together the month and day of your birth to the current Universal Year Number, and reduce until you reach a single digit.
Calculating your Personal Year Number – An Example:
Your birthday is July 21st and you would like to know your Personal Year number for 2018.
- We start by reducing the month of birth to a single digit. July is the 7th month of the year, so does not need reducing.
- We then reduce the day of birth, the 21st, to a single digit, so 2 + 1 = 3
- We already know the Universal Year Number for 2018, which is 11.
- Lastly, we add these 3 numbers together and reduce to a single number to find the Personal Year Number. So 7 + 3 + 11 = 21, and 2 + 1 = 3
In this example, if you were born on July 21st, then your Personal Year Number for 2018 is 3.
Simple, right!? Now, look up your Personal Year Number below. This will reveal the overarching energetic vibration of the year, according to the path that you are on. Knowing this can inform the focus you should take, the kinds of activities you are likely to excel at and the projects you should consider avoiding.

Personal Year Number 1
Last year you completed a 9 year cycle. You most likely let go of some people and circumstances in your life, and now is time to plant precious and intentional seeds and embark upon new adventures. This is a wonderful time to do anything you have wanted to do for some time (9 long years, perhaps!) but have been making excuses for. This is the year to take action and be bold! It’s is not a time to wait, think about things, and come up with reasons why or why not to do them. It is a time to do!
You will likely have a lot of energy now, so do some form of physical exercise daily, otherwise, you may experience nervous tension in your body or mind.
Starting something new takes confidence, so believe in yourself. Work on your self-confidence if this is something you struggle with. This Universe is helping you break out of your comfort zone and take your life to a new level!
Personal Year Number 2
At times, you may feel torn in two directions as some of your old identities are merging with your new ones. Be kind to yourself as you integrate these energies. Your emotions are on high and you might feel oversensitive or take other people’s opinions to heart. That is why it is so important to take time and reflect on your needs and your personal truth.
What is it that YOU actually want?
To find inner balance, you may need to draw more boundaries, say no more often, and learn how to receive. Where can you take back some of your energy? Are you giving more than you are receiving? Are there any areas in your life where you feel you deserve more? Explore those areas and find ways to balance your relationships in a reciprocal manner.
Your intuition is highly charged now. To access this gift, you need to listen to your inner voice above all others. Taking up yoga or meditation and spending more time in nature could be of huge benefit to you during this year. Use this beautiful time to get to know yourself better and have the courage to take care of yourself!
Since 2 attracts relationships, this could also be a wonderful year in which to meet someone who helps you feel good about yourself, romantic or otherwise. But remember, finding loving relationships begins with honoring and loving yourself first!
Personal Year Number 3
This is a potently creative time, so instead of worrying about your future, create the life you desire by cultivating more joy and beauty within you. What do you find beautiful about yourself and your life? What feeds your spirit and makes you feel happy? Use your imagination to create the life you have always wanted. Instead of focusing on what you lack, plant the seeds of love and nurture them by giving attention to what you are grateful for and what you are doing right!
3 is a social energy so spend time this year with people that help you feel good and raise your vibration. Your creativity is in full force now and it needs to be expressed. What creative or artistic activities have you always wanted to do? Do them this year! You will meet wonderful people and really feel good about yourself. This would be a great time to keep use your voice with singing, acting or writing. Any form of creative expression would be beneficial.
Make sure you tell people how you feel, because your emotions are seeking an outlet this year. Before doing so, spend some time to find words that uplift and inspire rather than create more conflict. Focus on what is beautiful in yourself and others and your world will look and feel better every day.
Personal Year Number 4
This vibration governs earthly concerns such as your home, family, money, finances, and day to day activities. The four creates a square, so you want to square your corners and set the stage for the dramatic year of change that lies ahead, after the next 12 months. Anything you can do to get organized now will serve you well, including tidying up the structural imperfections of your home, andd establishing daily regimes or routines.
This would be an ideal year to buy a home or establish a business, provided you pay careful attention to your contracts. Whether you are buying a home, investing in a business, or preparing for the future in any way, it would serve you to be very thorough with your financial planning and create a budget or spending plan.
Your physical body will need more attention this year, so make sure to stay disciplined about getting enough rest and exercise. This might sound very dull and restrictive but it isn’t. These disciplines will create more freedom and expansiveness for you in the long run.
This can be a highly enjoyable year where you feel yourself becoming more secure and stronger in every moment. This can also be a beneficial year to focus on enjoying time with family. All of your hard work will pay off in the long run. You will be so glad you had the fortitude to build your foundation now.
Personal Year Number 5
This year will feel like it is flying by because there will be so many changes and activities. After all the hard work of last year, this is a fantastic time to have fun and meet new people or travel to distant places. You may even feel the urge to relocate. You will find your social life expanding as you feel more expansive as well.
If there are any structures in your life that restrict you, now is the time to shake them off and seek new horizons. This is a wonderful time to have an adventure so if there is anywhere you want to go, buy your ticket! Or take that class you always wanted to take, or go to the theatre, or even be in the theatre! If you want to take up a new hobby, being in a group environment would be especially rewarding.
If you are involved in the media or any way, or have always wanted to be, you’ll feel extra blessed this year. If you want to grow your business, any type of advertising would prove worthwhile.
Make sure that with all of these changes and new feelings that you don’t scatter your energies. Listen to your heart to discern what is most important and make your decisions based on your intuitive guidance. You might make mistakes, but that is how you learn, and those lessons will serve you and help you to instruct others in the future.
Personal Year Number 6
With all of the changes and excitement from the previous year, now is the time to restore your body, mind and spirit. Your home and family will take centre stage, so you want to make sure your surroundings are harmonious and serene. Pay particular attention to the energy of your space, including the colors and sounds. Make any changes to your environment that help you feel peaceful and relaxed. Perhaps you want to beautify your personal image as well, such as investing in a new wardrobe or a different hairstyle that helps you feel more attractive.
If you have any health concerns, look for treatments that integrate emotional healing as well as physical. Yoga or dance would be an ideal activity for you to help you maintain balance between your body and mind. You might have extra responsibilities this year, particularly in your family, so make sure you take time to yourself and put your needs first. By taking care of yourself fully, you can better help others.
You will enjoy spending more time with all of your loved ones this year, including children and pets. This is an ideal period to attract a romantic partner if you have not met one yet. If you are already in a relationship, you can add more romance by taking time to have fun together instead of focusing on your responsibilities.
If you are facing any choices this year, make sure you are basing your decisions on what you really want, rather than what you think you “should” do or what you fear others will think of you. Focus on love and harmony this year and you cannot go wrong.
Personal Year Number 7
Take a break from the pressures of your daily activities to still your mind and restore your spirit. Reflect on what is meaningful to you and serves your purpose. If you can find time in nature, it will nourish every part of you, particularly if you retreat near the ocean. You might find you want to relocate closer to nature or live in a more serene environment, or at least go on a vacation.
If you do not have a daily meditation practice, you might consider taking one up. This is an ideal year to engage in any spiritual activity or group where you can learn more about your chosen faith with others. Any course of study or research will prove worthwhile provided your heart is in it, and you are not doing it out of obligation. If you are a writer, this can be the year to create your best work yet! No matter what you engage in this year, you want to keep your mind focused on what you want, rather than let your emotions get the better of you.
At times, you might feel that your emotions or outward circumstances are tearing you in two directions, leaving you angry or confused. This is an opportunity for you to gain dominion over your mind, so that you feel in control of your life, rather than feeling that circumstances in your life occur at random. If you find yourself getting overwhelmed, take a deep breath and stay in the moment. Stay focused on the big picture, and ask yourself if you have been making choices based on your personal truth, or if you have allowed others opinions to dominate your decision.
As you learn to stay centred amidst change, you will learn to deeply trust yourself and the process of your life. These are valuable skills that will carry you forward for the rest of your journey.
Personal Year Number 8
After all your hard work, you will begin to see the fruits of your labor. After the reflective introspection of last year, now is the time to act … And act big! What are your passions? Pay attention to those inner stirrings within you that make you feel excited and motivate you. Follow your bliss. You might find yourself wanting to do more, be more, experience more.
This is good!
What are some of those things that make you happy that you have been putting off? Don’t delay any longer. Live your life to the fullest! Pursue your dreams by taking some risks. If you feel stifled in any way it is because you have been limiting your idea of who you are. You can own your power and leadership abilities more fully now, and that includes your ability to receive more financial abundance.
You might find yourself challenged this year, as more is required of you, but that is only so you can experience your potential more fully. If you find yourself in power plays at work or in your relationships, it is to remind you that it is OK to be powerful, and not to be afraid to assert yourself. What is it that you want? Now go for it! And have fun reaping the rewards!
Personal Year Number 9
Congratulations! You are in the final year of a 9-year cycle. You have learned a lot along the way, so take stock of all of your lessons because you will be passing this wisdom to others. You might find that others are drawn to you for advice or teaching this year. Trust that you have what it takes to guide them. You might be reflecting quite a bit on the past now, but this is only so you learn from it and move on.
Make sure you are not holding on to the past. Let go of what no longer serves you. Finish up any loose ends and unfinished business in your life as you prepare for a new cycle. Forgive anyone who needs forgiving and that includes yourself! You might require more alone time this year, so you can connect with your intuition. There is nothing wrong with this.
Value this time with yourself; there will be more excitement next year. This is a period for reflection, but it is also a time for recognition of everything you have done and achieved, so make sure you are taking stock of everything good in your life, and it will come back to you manifold.
