### Numerology

• Each of us has a different numerological assignment for the year based on our specific birthdate. You use your birthdate to calculate your life path number, which gives an overall impression of your mission in life and how you will face the challenges set before you. You will also have a different number associated with each year in your life, and this article will show you how to calculate your personal 2017 year number and what that number means.
As many people know, 2016 was a 9 year, universally, in numerology (2+0+1+6). 2017 will be a 1 year (2+0+1+7).

But each of us has a unique number for the year ahead of us which is based on our specific birthdate information.

### How to calculate your personal year number

You calculate your personal 2017 year number by taking your birthdate and adding the numbers contained within 2+0+1+7. So, for example, my birthdate is 10-30.

In order to calculate my 2017 number, I would add 1+0+3+0+2+0+1+7, which equals 14, and then reduce that number to a single digit number, like this: 1+4=5.

Or take the birthdate March 24th. Add 3+2+4+2+0+1+7 to get 19, then 1+9=10, or 1+0=1

Find the number below that corresponds to your personal year number. This number will give you an overview of the energy and potentials you will be dealing with during 2017.

Personal Year 1 – Welcome to the beginning! One years herald the start of new projects, enterprises, opportunities, and life cycles. Opportunities that arise in 1 years are generally few and far between, so make sure you truly weigh and measure what you pass up and what you jump at. What you do this year will set the tone for the coming year, so remember that what you do now will have a lasting effect in your life. Personal Year 1 is also about learning to be independent – to take care of and stand up for yourself.

Personal Year 2 – Where year 1 was about movement and motion, Personal Year 2 is about taking time to relax and consider what it is that you have been working toward. It is OK to relax and take a break – in fact, breaks are necessary in order to keep energy flowing in the right direction! Rest and taking time to reflect also helps you better connect with your intuition, which will likely be more pronounced this year. Attention turns to relationships, romance, and partnership. You will realize that no man is an island and you might make new and lasting friendships. Also, you might feel more judgmental and see things in terms of black/white when you are in a Personal Year 2.

Personal Year 3 – In 3 Personal years, the emphasis and energy turns to giving birth and nurturing. Now, ‘birth’ doesn’t necessarily equate with baby making; it can relate to bringing your ideas and projects to fruition and giving your ideas life. You’ll definitely continue the trend of feeling more social and wanting to celebrate life with your friends (old and new) and family. Just make sure that you don’t ignore your responsibilities because you are having so much fun! It might not be a great year for your finances, but you’ll be having so much fun, it won’t really matter! Until…

Personal Year 4 – This year, the party party attitude gives way to the desire to create firm foundations and bring more security into your life. The habits you maintained during your 3 year might have had a negative effect on your health, and it will be important for you to create new habits that focus more on your health and well-being. One habit to consider is yoga and meditation, as they can help you get your thoughts together and also to feel more grounded, along with their many health benefits. Organization is key in a Personal 4 Year, and you’ll feel drawn to clear clutter and get your accounts in order. Also, you might feel the need to be a bit more assertive this year – it’s time to make real effort to achieve the goals you’ve set for yourself. This year’s energy will help with that, as long as you don’t fight the flow!

Personal Year 5 – 5 years can be chaotic and life changing. It is the mid-point in the circle, and you might find yourself pondering if what you have done so far is actually what you truly want. If it is, you will double down on the determination to get yourself where you need to be. If it isn’t, you’ll be willing to actually admit what is and isn’t working for you and leave behind those things that aren’t serving you any longer. Travel can also be a big part of a 5 year, so expect to expand your horizons and explore new places and cultures. This year’s energy will require that you learn how to be flexible and allow yourself to make decisions that might not fit into conservative cubbie holes.

Personal Year 7 – During the Personal Year 7, you’ll turn your attention to where your attention is going. Allow yourself to be introspective and conscious of how you feel about your place in the world and your world views. You’ll want to feel like you have control over your destiny and have truly set the proper course for yourself. Spirituality and religion will become important in your life, and you might find yourself joining a local congregation and/or reading spiritual books in order to feel more connected with God or the Universe. Time alone will be equally as important, so make sure to keep a good balance between social and downtime. Travel is also a theme in 7 years, so get your suitcase and passport ready.

Personal Year 8 – Personal Year 8s are times of power and really feeling strong and well in who you are and what your life is about. Last year’s introspection gives way to fully understanding and accepting yourself – faults and all. You are going to feel like things finally get moving in life. Be prepared for quick forward motion. This year, you’ll have the ability to tame your fears and connect with the strength you’ve found within yourself. Opportunities are abound and abundance comes your way in 8 years. Make a wish! Set your sights on seeing it fulfilled, and be ready to be amazed at what you can accomplish!

Personal Year 9 – 9 years herald the end of one cycle, so projects are completed and relationships either stand the test of time or don’t. As you can imagine, 9 years are meant to rock foundations and that sometimes throws people off. Just remember that uncertainty and issues can help you let go of what you don’t need so that you have room in your life for something new. You might actually feel a need to be alone more often in your Personal 9 Year so that you can connect with your internal wisdom and guidance. Others might also be drawn to you this year to ask for wisdom and guidance. Share what you learn with others. Help them along their path and clear the way for change and new beginnings in your own life.
