After my last post I’ve had several requests to explain how age influences your personal year. In that post I mentioned that your personal year is influenced by when your birthday falls. We’ll explore the significance of your age in this post. I’ll start by reviewing the personal year, then I’ll give a specific example followed by the meanings for each of the age years so you can learn how your age influences your personal year.
First a short review: The personal year is the theme that is likely to dominate your attention from January to December. You calculate your personal year by adding the month and day of birth to the current year. For example, if Lisa’s birthday is April 20, 2011 she would be in a 1 personal year (if you add the numbers across, 4+20+2011=10 and ten reduces to a single digit of 1). See the blog entry below to read the meanings for each personal year. If you haven’t already done so, figure out your personal year for 2010 to see if the energy fits what you just went through last year.
What I’ve discovered is that your age determines how you will activate your personal year. If Lisa is 34 years old and she reduces the number in her age to a single digit (3+4=7) she sees that 7 is the age energy that will activate her 1 personal year.
Lisa’s 1 personal year is the beginning of a new nine year cycle. Whatever she starts in a 1 year will have an effect for the next nine years. In 2011 Lisa is likely to start new ventures, become more independent, show leadership and learn new skills. This is an excellent year for her to clarify her goals and lay the foundation for years to come.
From January to April 20 Lisa will activate her personal year as a 7 age. The 7 age energy is about contemplation, understanding and analysis. The 7 energy is a time to look at the past and present while planning for the future.
So, 2011 for Lisa is a year for starting new projects and becoming very independent. For the first four months she will do it as a 7 age energy. She will most likely approach new projects by analyzing, planning and figuring out how she wants to go from where she is to where she wants to be.
On April 20 Lisa turns 35 and the age energy influence on the 1 personal year will change to 8 which is about issues of power and money. As an 8 age she is likely to implement the new projects she planned and analyzed in the first four months of her personal 1 year. So from April 20 to December 31 Lisa will focus on achieving her plans to implement new projects to create success. The 8 energy is especially focused on business, financial achievements, promotions, increased influence and prestige.
Now you can figure out how your age influences your personal year. Start by reducing your age to a single digit and look at the meanings of the personal age below. Then go to the my last blog entry and look at the meanings for the personal year and combine them as I’ve done in the example above.
The 1 age (energy) wants to start new projects, show leadership and independence. For example, a 6 personal year emphasizes home and harmony. An 1 age will most likely want to start new projects around the home, or move to a new residence.
The 2 age is concerned with relationships and balance. Partnerships and communication issues are likely to come up. For example, in a 5 personal year the issues are about growth and change. The 2 age will continually be choosing between options as things are changing while trying to make choices that are fair and balanced.
The 3 age is about being joyful. It’s an age of expansiveness, opportunities and happiness. For example, in a 2 personal year the 3 age will bring balance in creative, and often, intuitive ways. While the 2 year is about balance and relationship, the 3 age excels in social relationships and is often romantic.
The 4 age becomes more sober and stable following the expansiveness of the 3 age energy. Using the example from above, in a 2 personal year when the age number changes from a 3 to a 4 the person will most likely become more settled down and structured compared to the beginning of the year. But remember, the 4 age will still be working with the 2 personal year until the end of the year.
The 5 age is about growth and change and the person may seem a bit unpredictable after the 4 energy. For example, a 5 age in an 8 personal year will probably bring a major change in areas of finance or work. The 5 age often approaches the personal year with a sense of adventure and excitement.
The 6 age is about home and harmony. For example, in a 9 personal year that emphasizes completion the 6 age is likely to be completing projects around the home rather than at work. The 6 age in a 9 year can relate to completion at home, such as children going off to college.
The 7 age is about taking time to think about and analyze whatever energy the personal year brings. For example, in a 3 personal year the 7 age person may be quietly assessing what brings joy and contemplating the past and planning the future in respect to what will make her/him happy.
The 8 age is about power and money and it’s important for the 8 age to achieve goals. For example, in an 1 personal year when a person is creating new projects and showing leadership, an 8 age will be looking at how to get a promotion or perhaps start a new business.
The 9 age is about completion. The 9 person wants to clean out closets, finish projects, and end relationships that aren’t working. For example, a 9 age in a 4 personal year, which is about stability and structure, is likely to clean out all of the loose ends in work, relationships, and home.
Much as understanding astrology is more than knowing your sun sign, numerology has many factors that influence a reading. Look to see if there are numbers that are repeated in the age, date or name and look up the meaning of those numbers. For example, I did a reading for someone born September 9, 1919. The Life Path number which is based on her birthdate is a 2 (9+9+1919=1937 reduces to 2), but the prominence of the 9’s and 1’s had a major impact on her Life Path and in each of her personal years.
Looking at the numbers in the letters of her name would help to understand if the 9’s and 1’s are still prominient or if other numbers have an equal or greater influence.
Please let me know how these numbers work for you.
