Calculating Your Personal Year for 2017

Let’s look at a quick and fun way to get a sample of Numerology by looking at your upcoming personal year. The personal year extends from January to December, no matter when your birthday occurs. The theme of the personal year usually describes what will have your attention this year. Below is the formula to calculate the 2017 personal year.

Your personal year is calculated by adding the month and day of your birth to the current year, and then reducing them to a single digit. For example, my birthday is April 21, so we calculate it like this:
April=4th month
21 (2+1)=3
2017 (2+0+1+7) = 10 reduces to 1
So, 4+3+1= 8.

My personal year is a 8. You can read below where I’m likely to place my energy this year.

Now, you have the tools to calculate your personal year and then you can surprise your family and friends with their personal year predictions.

People in a 1 personal year are planting the seeds for the next 9 year cycle. This is a year with many new opportunities and activities. The 1 year is likely to be a year of leadership and initiative. Tarot cards that relate to one energy are 1 Magician, 10 Wheel of Fortune, and 19 Sun.

People in a 2 personal year are open to new relationships and opportunities that embrace harmony, balance and cooperation. During a 2 year, when a person is out of balance or in a disagreeable relationship, the person may become depressed because they are not able to act with the 2 energy. The 2 year is an excellent year to build on the new beginnings from the 1 year. Tarot cards that relate to 2 energy are 2 High Priestess, 11 Justice, 20 Awakening.

People in a 3 personal year feel expansive and open to new adventures. This is very much “play time” as people in the 3 energy explore the meaning of joy in their lives. The 3 energy is very creative, especially in art and writing. It’s important to distinguish between creativity and frivolousness. Tarot cards that relate to 3 energy are 3 Sustenance, 12 New Perspectives, and 21 World.

A 4 personal year is the time to focus after the playfulness of the 3 year. It is a year of focus and creating a foundation for the future. It can be considered a “maze” year as the people in this year seem to have more obstacles than usual. As they come to a block, they must learn to change directions to find a new route rather than run into a brick wall. Tarot cards that relate to 4 energy are 4 Authority and 13 Life Cycles.

People in a 5 personal year often feel great relief after the constrictions of the 4 year. The 5 personal year is full of exploration and working beyond the constraints of the 4 year. Many new opportunities present themselves, and it’s sometimes difficult to finish the many projects that they will be tempted to begin. Tarot cards related to a 5 year is 5 Introspection and 14 Temperance.

The 6 personal year is usually pretty smooth, even as the person is likely to be focused on responsibility and service, especially to family. People in this year are focused on home and what home means: who they want in the home, where home is, what home means. People must beware of taking on too much responsibility so that the sense of individuality is lost. Tarot cards that relate to 6 energy are 6 Choice and 15 Entrapment.

People in a 7 personal year spend their time analyzing and trying to understand what their life is about. The 7 year is about choices, often unexpected ones. It is a time to pause, consider, reflect, evaluate and decide. Intuition is important in the 7 year. Tarot cards related to 7 energy are 7 Determination and 16 Chaos.

The 8 personal year is about status and money. It’s often the perfect time for people to explore new employment opportunities, apply for promotions and evaluate their general financial situation. Many people start a new business in an 8 year after the 7 year of analyzing and evaluating the wisdom of such a move. Tarot cards with 8 energy are 8 Strength and 17 Star.

The 9 personal year is the end of a 9 year. People may find they are cleaning out closets, relationships, and anything else that no long serve them. As a part of the completion cycle they may find that giving to others, financially or emotionally, become important to them. Tarot cards with the 9 energy are 9 Introspection and 18 Moon.
