I can’t believe it’s 2017…where did this past year go? It feels like just yesterday that I was sitting down to figure out all that I was going to accomplish in 2016, my personal 8 year.
This is a universal 1 year for the world. That means that unlike last year, which was filled with death and emotional turbulence, this year will be about new beginnings. For me it is a personal 9 year, which will be filled with….death and emotional turbulence (yikes!)
What’s yours? To calculate your personal year, just add your day and month of birth to the current year. For example: my birthday (April 13th) added to 2017 goes like this:
April = 4
13 = 1+3 = 4
2017 = 2+0+1+7 = 10, and 1+0 = 1
4 + 4 + 1 = 9
Easy, right? Here’s what to expect in a nutshell:
1 – New beginnings, the start of your new 9 year cycle, learning lessons of authority and independence, change
2 – Ego takes a back seat to relationships and harmony, learning lessons of compromise, diplomacy, and patience
3 – Creativity and self-expression are paramount, expanding your life, experiencing joy and stretching to new heights
4 – Laying foundations under the dreams of last year, hard work, fixing what’s broken, creating stability
5 – The “snow globe” year that shakes you up, expect the unexpected, go with the flow, live in the now
6 – The love year that focuses on commitments, duty, family, giving and receiving love, and home
7 – A quiet, contemplative, and solitary year of retreat. Time to meditate, do research, and center yourself
8 – The power year of accomplishment. Learning lessons about personal power, financial gains/losses, and success or failure in business and career
9 – The end of a cycle, emotional release, giving back to others, letting go of outdated people/places/things
These are basic explanations, but you can hone in on what’s happening month-by-month by adding the number value of current month we are in to your personal year. For example, if you are entering into a personal 5 year, then January is a 6 month (5 + 1 = 6). So although you are entering into a year of change and turbulence, January in particular will be focused on responsibilities and loved ones.
Happy New Year!
