Did you know that you have a sort of inner calendar that automatically gives you the proper timing for every experience of your life? Did you know that if you flow with the energy of this spiritual timing device you will automatically be in the right place at the right time? Did you know that this timing device can teach you how to get the most out of every aspect of your life and that it can tell you what to expect in each year of your life?
Did you know that you are automatically flowing with a special quality present in each year of your life whether you are aware of it or not? Did you know that you designed your life that way?
Your inner calendar is accessed through numerology and reveals your ideal progress year by year in a cycle called Personal Years. Your Personal Years guide you unerringly through life.
If you are experiencing struggle in your life, you may be out of sync with your Personal Year. It will feel as if you are trying to swim upstream against a strong current, trying harder and harder but not getting where you want to go. Once you know how to navigate your inner calendar, you will flow with a current that carries you forward toward growth and fulfillment.
More About Your Personal Years
Our outer calendar shows us the flow of time progressing from one year to the next through the months of the year. Every January 1 brings us a new year, called a Universal Year in numerology.
Your Personal Year begins on your birthday. Each year leads you along an unfolding path through your strengths and challenges. Each year presents an opportunity to learn from and take advantage of the number quality of that year, providing experiences for growth in periods of organized progression, like a flower opening.
Would you like to be consciously aware of your Personal Year cycles? It’s a simple process to calculate them using the month and day of your birthday.
How to Do It
Add the month and day of your birthday together, reducing each number to a single digit. If the total is 11 or 22, do not reduce it. Instead, write it like this: 11/2 or 22/4. These are master numbers and can be experienced as double digits or in their single-digit form.
Here are two examples. Just follow the simple directions.
Let’s calculate May 5:
May = 5
5 + 5 = 10
1 + 0 = 1, the number you will always use to calculate your Personal Years if your birthday is May 5.
The next step is to calculate the single-digit sum of the Universal Year that is closest to your birthday.
In 2022, use 2021 until your birthday in 2022.
2021 = 5
5 + 1 = 6, your Personal Year number for 2021.
For birthdays between July and December, use the Universal Year number of your next birthday.
In 2022, use 2023 until your birthday in 2024.
Let’s calculate September 24:
September = 9
24 = 2+4 = 6
9 + 6 = 15
1 + 5 = 6
2023 = 7
6 + 7 = 13
1 + 3 = 4, the number you will always use to calculate your Personal Years if your birthday is September 24.
You can calculate your Personal Years for the next 9 years to see what’s coming up for you. You can even calculate your first Personal Year cycle on the day you were born or for any other period in your life in order to gain insight into your experiences.
Interpretations of Your Personal Years
I’ve kept these brief because this post is long. You can find the in-depth interpretations in my book.
A year of starting new projects, making new plans, meeting new people, taking the lead, following your own instincts and intuition. A time for expressing your individuality, standing up for yourself, and establishing independence. Time for action, creativity, and positive focus. Following your feelings will lead to success.
A year for cooperation, partnerships, and creating peace within and without. Developing the new projects or ideas of your Number 1 year, attending to details, networking, possible partnerships, and collaboration. Your feelings and psychic abilities are emphasized.
A year for branching out, social activities, self-expression, creativity, promoting yourself and your projects. A time to enjoy the lighter side of life by entertaining, going out with friends, and involvement in the creative arts, particularly with words, such as writing, speaking, teaching, and singing.
A year for building and creating routines and systems for efficiency, patiently attending to details, creating a foundation from the results of the previous 3 years. A time to create systems that will operate automatically for you in all areas of your life. A demanding year that requires self-discipline to prepare for next year when there will be a great deal of activity.
A period of change, freedom, movement, activity of almost any kind. A time of adjusting to new things, a time of expansion and learning to let go. It can be an adventure and can seem upsetting at times. Learn to see changes as new opportunities for growth and fulfillment.
A time for home, family, and health. There could be family responsibilities, changes in your home and family relationships. Take care of yourself. A good year to get married or strengthen your relationship. Family and community responsibilities offer opportunities for growth and enjoyment.
A time of introspection, study, research, regrouping, and reevaluating. A time of rest, meditation, and mental and spiritual housecleaning. It can be a time of renewal as you face emotional challenges. Allow developments to unfold rather than trying to force them. Take time to be by yourself, get enough exercise, and be out in nature.
This can be a dynamic year with lots of energy. A good year for business success if you have grown with the previous years in the cycle. A year for being organized, using good judgment, leading, being efficient, practical, and thinking big. A year for dealing with money and material things. Use your common sense to figure things out.
A year of endings. You could be ending relationships, a job, cleaning out your old stuff, or changing old attitudes and habits, letting go of things that no longer serve you. When things get emotional, remember you are preparing for a new beginning. A good time for metaphysical studies, artistic activities, travel, enjoying the outdoors.
An illuminating and inspiring year, full of high energy and deep sensitivity. A time of evaluating your motives and ethics and making adjustments where needed. You are motivated to be the best you can be, setting new standards of excellence for yourself. Your interests will be in metaphysical or psychic studies and spiritual or scientific exploration. Not a year to start a business or anything new financially.
A year for action and thinking big. Pursue your dreams; those that involve service to others will be successful. If you keep your thoughts focused, don’t lose your vision, take action, you will accomplish your goals. This is not the year for purely personal goals.
