Your Personal Year - What’s up for 2016?

What does 2016 hold for you energetically? Numerology believes that we all go through nine yearlong life cycles, called Personal Year Cycles.

You switch to a new Personal Year numbers every January 1st, as the calendar turns. Depending on where you are in your cycle, your Personal Year Number could be a 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, or a 9. After 9, you’ll cycle back to 1 again. Each Personal Year Number has different qualities to it.

The great thing about knowing where you are in your Personal Year Cycle is that you can forecast and allow yourself to work with the energy of the year rather than against it. Know your theme and you’ll find that you have much more success throughout the year…or at least you’ll be able to extract deeper meaning about why things are happening the way they are.

2016: An 9 Universal Year

2016 happens to be an “9” year, universally speaking, because if you tally the individual digits 2+0+1+6 they add up to 9. So the vibrational energy of “9” will guide us globally throughout the year.

Here’s how to calculate your Personal Year for 2016:

• Take your birth date: 2/14/1971

• Now replace the year you were born with the current year: 2/14/2016

• Now add those numbers together like a long addition math problem:
2 + 1 + 4 + 2 + 0 + 1 + 6 = 16

• Digit down to a single-digit number, so keep adding: 1+7= 8

• If this were your birthday, you’re experiencing an “8” Personal Year in 2016

How is the Personal Year different from the Life Path Number?

Your Personal Year Number is different from your Life Path Number which, like your astrological Sun sign, never changes. The Life Path (or Birth Path) number is calculated by adding up your month, date and year of birth. If you already know yours, awesome. If not, use this formula to calculate your Life Path Number.
