Numerology has been used for thousands of years to help determine the meaning in the greater cosmic plan. Each number in your date of birth can be reduced to a single vibration. The numbers in your birthdate reflect certain aptitudes and character tendencies. Your personal year is important in determining your most fulfilling life direction. It identifies your skills and abilities, the negative traits that you must balance, and even the motivation and purpose of your life for that year.

Below is how to calculate your personal year for 2017.

Convert the day, month and coming year down to single digit form.

Example: If your birthday is July 20, then write:

  • Day: 20 = 2+0 = 2
  • Month: July is the 7th month = 7
  • Year: 2017= 2+1+7 = 10 = 1+0 = 1

Add 2 + 7 + 1 = 10

1+0 = 1

Your personal year for 2017 is 1.
