Numerology may not change your life but it can help you understand more about your strengths and challenges in 2011. Numerology has many different levels but I want to show you a quick and easy way to get a sample of numerology by looking at your “personal year”. It’s a little like reading a generic astrology reading in the newspaper, but it’s fun and easy and may even surprise you. Since we’re at the end of the year you can figure out your 2010 personal year number, read the description below that matches your number, and see how well your experience this year matches the theme. Figure out your friends’ number and you may be even more surprised and enlightened.
Your personal year is determined by adding the month and day of your birth to the current year. For example, my birthday is April 21 so I add that to the current year, 2010 (4+21+2010=2035). Keep reducing the number until you have a single digit (2+3+0+5=10 and 1+0=1). My personal year energy for 2010 is 1.
The 1 year is the beginning of a new 9 year cycle. What you start in a 1 year will have an effect for the next nine years. Those with a 1 year are starting new ventures, becoming more independent, showing leadership and learning new skills. This is an excellent year to clarify your goals and lay the foundation for years to come.
This description works for me. I started a new business and am laying the foundation to teach a series of classes in numerology and Tarot. And I started this blog!
Check out the meaning of the numbers below and apply them to 2010. Does the theme or issue for your number work for you? You can do this with your business, too. You’ll meet others with the same personal year who have a somewhat different experience, much like two people with the same astrology sign will have different personalities. In numerology the energy is different because the number in your age and the time of year of your birthday influences the personal year theme. But that’s for another post if you are interested.
2 The 2 year is about issues of balance. How do you balance different aspects of your relationships, work, home, play? Diplomacy, kindness and tact are important skills to foster. You’ll also find yourself making a lot of choices in the 2 year. Partnerships and communication issues are likely to come up.
3 The 3 year is about finding what brings you joy. It’s a time of expansiveness, opportunities and happiness. The 3 year is often creative, intuitive and the imagination sparkles. It’s often a good year for romance and other social relationships. A fun year!
4 The 4 year grounds us with issues around stability and structure. Sometimes a 4 year can feel like you’re going through a maze so persistence and endurance need to be cultivated. Everything is in the details. Accomplishments should be celebrated because they seem to require more work than before.
5 The 5 year is about issues of growth and change and may feel a bit unpredictable after the 4 energy. Your 5 year will probably bring a major change in home, family or work. You are likely to feel a sense of adventure and excitement. There are opportunities for great progress in different areas of your life.
6 The 6 energy is about home. What makes your home? Who do you want in your home? What do you want to change in your home? The 6 year is usually gentle and the emphasis is on harmony and balance. This may be the year you get married, expand your family or care for family members in a new way. Responsibility, love and balance are keys issues in a 6 year.
7 Take a chance to pause and breathe in the 7 year. Whew! The last 3 years may have seemed pretty intense. The 7 year is about contemplation, understanding and analysis. The 7 year is a time to look at the past and present while planning for the future.
8 The 8 year is about issues of power and money. This is the year when accomplishments feel very important – and the year when you are in the best energy to create accomplishments. This is a fruitful time after all of the dreaming, planning and working of the last several years.
9 The 9 year is about issues of completion. You probably want to clean out closets, finish projects, and end relationships that aren’t working. The 9 year is about finishing up and cleaning out. You are getting ready to start a new cycle next year. It can be a big year for changes.
The exception to reducing the number to a single digit is the number 11. For example, May 3, 2010 (5+3+2010=11). The 11 year also is influenced by the 2 year so read both years.
11 The 11 year is about issues of inner development and spirituality. The intuition may be expanded and you may deepen your spiritual connection in whatever form spirituality takes for you. The energy of the 2 is also present in an 11 year.
Remember, my personal year is a 1 so 2011 will naturally be a 2. To find out what 2011 has in store for you add 1 to your 2010 number.
