Personal Year Number - a powerful cycle number

The Personal Year Number or Personal Year digit is the most powerful of the personal energy vibrations. The next is the personal month followed by the Personal Day. Each year 1 - 9 has its unique feel and will bring particular types of events if these are supported by other personal numbers such as the pinnacle and challenge that is active and the essence number for the year as well as The Total Year Count. Personal Years run in 9 year cycles with the greatest impact being in the shift from the ending of a cycle in a Personal Year 9 to the New energy of a Personal Year 1. The personal year number runs from your birthday to birthday. Your birth path  is the Personal Year number for the year you were born.

Personal Month and Day Numbers 

Yesterday was a 14/5 Personal Day for me - the karmic number of change, excess and all things out of control - sort of fits with the facebook problem but also for me personally I had issues with finding a parking spot and a lots of things that just didn't go according to plan or the usual routine. I also ate too much for lunch and in too much of a hurry and ended up with a stomach ache!


The way you work this out is you take your Personal Year number ( your month digit plus day digit) and add this to the calendar month number. Then add the day digit.


For me yesterday that is PY 6 + 3(March) + 5 (14th day) = 14/5


It is important to remember that the Personal Year transit is felt the most keenly. It is the strongest of the personal number transits. The energies further down the tree such as the personal month number are also felt but on a smaller scale and the daily number even smaller. A bit like ripples in a pond moving from the centre out in their effect.


Another example:


If your Personal Year digit is a 1 then it would be a year of new beginnings, new opportunities such as a new job or maybe a new house. If your personal month number is a 1 then maybe this would be the month you started that new job or maybe you begin a new project or hobby or make plans to improve your home. Its the time you start to think about these things.


If your Personal Day number is a 1, you might find that there is an opportunity for you to take the lead in some small way. Maybe you try to do something on your own for the first time. A personal day 1 would give you a good sense of confidence that day. You may come up with a great idea which is useful further down the track.


This is a simplistic way of looking at the Personal Month and Personal Day numbers but it helps you to get the idea. Just think of the pure energy of the number and then scale it down to events that could happen over a month or a day.


Have a great day! 😊🦉🦉🦉❤️❤️🌻🙏
