Numerology Lesson Eight & Nine - The Personality

Over the years we have found many benefits by understanding the Personality. The information within the Personality gives us an understanding of how others may attempt to see and direct us. It provides us with insight on which aspects of our personality others may recognize and validate. This information is derived from their first surface impressions.

Have you ever had someone tell you that you would be good at something and then heard it again later from someone else? Perhaps as time went by you may have found yourself actually involved in activities which utilized the qualities they saw in you. And maybe as more time went by, you realized that you were quite capable in this area but it didn't fully resonate with what you really desired or felt motivated to do.

What we are describing is the influence the outer world has on us. Yes, the Personality number has qualities that are very much a part of us. We may be content with what this vibration has to offer for a while. However, it is the Heart's Desire vibration that assists us in manifesting our full natures. The Heart's Desire will lead us to a greater fulfillment found within our Expression vibration. As you will recall, the Expression includes both the vowels (Heart's Desire) and the consonants (Personality) in your name.

So how can we use the Personality vibration? It's simple: We incorporate it. In doing so, we can recognize that the Personality is an added dimension of our nature. Its vibration is not the full capacity that exists within us and we are capable of attainments that lay outside of its influence. By adding the Personality as a supporting influence, it will assist us rather than directing the whole show.
Let's take a look at Barbara's calculations again. In the following Numerology table we illustrate both the  Heart's Desire and Personality. When adding these two final totals together you will have the Expression number.

3 + 1 + 3 = 7 Heart's Desire
3 1 12/3 = 3




9 2

5 5
3 3
22/4 10/1 8
22 + 1 + 8 = 31
3 + 1 = 4 Personality
7 Heart's Desire + 4 Personality = 11/2 Destiny

Barbara has a 4 personality. So what nature lies within a 4? How would this relate to how others would see Barbara and how they may respond to her? How might they direct and interact with her? These are some of the questions you can ask. After you have answered these questions, you will be able to redirect the energy as a supportive influence.

As we answer these questions, we get a sense that others would see her as someone who could accomplish what she sets out to do. She will be perceived as determined and capable of using her tools. Others would  also see her as someone who is practical and approaches things from a more conservative direction. A 4 often holds the stereotypical qualities of a farmer: Someone who will work very hard and take on much duty and responsibility while steadily working to accomplish what is vital. Would this mean others would like to give Barbara their tasks and responsibilities as well? Possibly, since they would see her as quite capable.

Again, because the four in this position represents the outer world, it may be likely that Barbara has been directed by her outside world to do things which are far more practical and limited than the full capabilities of her nature. By embracing these qualities and using them to support the Heart's Desire and Expression, she may find greater attainments possible. By using the Personality vibration as a supportive influence, determination and a step by step approach will assist the motivations her 7 Heart's Desires and her 11/2 Expression in achieving opportunities and purpose. Can you get a sense of the high level of supportive power she will have behind her dreams, desires, and opportunities?

During this lesson we'll be describing life as a journey. As we live each day we experience, access, and develop our natures. The following formula is based on this concept. Again, we will use Barbara Ann Kelly as our example. We have prepared a blank chart that you can print out that will make it easy for you to create your own Numerology "mini-reports" like the one below. Please click here to go to that page and print out the blank chart. Hopefully you have a printer available. If not, just reproduce it on a piece of paper.

Harmonious and Discordant Aspects

Numerology Lesson Ten  - Harmonious and Discordant Aspects

Let's use music as a metaphor and imagine that each of our lives are a unique song. A harmonious relationship is a blending that comes together and appears to flow with grace and ease. A discordant relationship is a blending that seems offbeat or out or sorts in some way. A discordant tone could even appear to split off and sound like two tones disrupting each other to find identity. This may sound familiar to some of you already.

In working with over-balanced and under-balanced energy, you can imagine that the harmonious and discordant relationship might have something to do with bringing about this imbalance. We believe so. We also believe that everyone has free will. Therefore, some people can take even the most discordant combination and transform it into an opportunity. They quickly reshape the imbalance and seek ways to find empowerment. It is much like the friction of a match striking an abrasive surface to create a fire that then continues to build momentum.

In other situations we have found harmonious energies, which should flow with ease, that are never quite able to gain momentum. Therefore, the intended purpose is never quite realized. This has brought us to feel that both aspects, harmonious and discordant, can be positive as well as negative. However, by understanding the relationship of the core elements with each other and the potentials that exist within their relationship, a numerologist can help find solutions. They can act as a guide and help their clients recognize possible choices that they hadn't recognized before. As a chart interpreter, you may also be able to point out possible patterns in which awareness can be developed.

In this lesson we explore examples of possible combinations for you. Over the years of examining charts, we have found that there are no set rules. Some combinations in which compatibility seems so unlikely to exist, can bring out the best of each number's qualities through a person's consistent learning by trial and error. On the other hand, some combinations which are easy to blend, can create a lack of desire and energy. In these situations the person may become complacent or bored. They may not live up to the full potential found within their chart. We wish you to become insightful Numerologists. Therefore, this lesson's Numerology Home Play focuses on exercises to help in utilizing both harmonious and discordant energies in constructive ways! For fun, imagine ways that the combinations could become out of balance as well.

Refresh your memory by going back and rereading the key descriptions of each core part. The Life Path points to talents and abilities. The Heart's Desire is an expression of motivation and desire. In the Expression you find opportunity and purpose, and in the Personality you find supportive traits. Use these descriptions when blending these energies.


Let's refer back to our subject, Barbara Ann Kelly, who has a 1 for a Life Path and a 7 for a Heart's Desire. This vibration is usually discordant. What does that mean? It may mean that the 1's talents and abilities leading her to attainment are strong-willed. This would conflict with the desire and motivation of the 7 Heart that wants to take time to develop introspection and understanding. The 1 would become impatient with the 7 and the 7 would resent the 1! Anyone with this combination will probably be very familiar with this description.

People may feel like a dichotomy exists within them when energies that seem foreign to each other exist in their natures. A practiced Numerologist will assist by helping create connection between these parts. This helps to create inner communication and an easier flow of energy.

Let's pose a couple of important questions:
What is a possible direction to take with these two seemingly conflicting energies to help them learn how to connect?
What would need to occur for this to be possible?

Perhaps if the desire and motivation of the 7 Heart were empowered to use its keen observation, intuition, and ability of analysis, it could empower the 1 Life Path to use this newly acquired knowledge to lead it to greater attainment! A potentially discordant combination is now co-creating in a way that works for both energies. The inner vibrations can now flow with more ease.

Using another example, let's consider the combination of a 2 Life Path and a 3 Expression. This combination is usually harmonious. In this case, the ability of the 2 Life Path to act as a team player is supported by the 3's social awareness and opportunities found through expression. The cooperation within the 2 can help the 3 meet it's purpose. But, what if the 3 Expression lacked purpose and direction and was too frivolous and playful? The 2 would experience an inner lack of cooperation which could lead to frustration. This example illustrates how a combination that is usually harmonious can still create imbalances! Again, it is about free will!

In our next example, let's use a 4 Expression and a 6 Heart's Desire. This combination is usually harmonious. The 4 has abilities which like to create systems and order while the 6 Heart's Desire is motivated to serve and wants responsibility. These two vibrations can team up and become incredibly powerful. However, what if the 4 becomes too restrictive and one dimensional? The 6--who loves to contribute--would feel the restriction and may respond with a lack of commitment. The 6 Heart would feel disconnected and could not serve in the ways that it wished! In this case, a practiced Numerologist could point out possibilities and help the client bridge to more useful awareness'.

Numerology is a wonderful tool to use when facilitating others. By helping a person understand their nature and balance their core parts, people become more powerful and effective.

Numerology Home Play

  1. Get your pen and pad out and refer back to the charts you created in Lesson Nine.
  2. For each person, practice blending the core elements:
If the combination is harmonious, examine the traits and how they could blend and flow with ease.
Imagine how they could become disruptive and move into an under-balanced or over-balanced state.
If the combination is discordant examine the traits and how they may conflict with each other.
Consider how they could be supportive to each other and create harmony.
  1. First, combine the talents and abilities of the Life Path with the purpose and opportunities of the Expression.
  2. Next, combine the Life Path with the motivations of the Heart's Desire.
  3. Last, combine the Heart's Desire with the Expression.

Numerology Lesson 11 - The Intensification of Numbers

Numerology Lesson 11 - The Intensification of Numbers

This Numerology lesson details the averages of numbers found within a name. The Intensification of Numbers can point to areas where we can learn more about ourselves. Knowing this information can help us round out our natures. It can also help us gain a greater sense of self-definition, point us to areas where we can grow, and help us develop inner strengths.
We feel that a person's individual nature can not be separated from the whole. We are one collective, so to speak, of human beings. Let's once again use the metaphor of music. Each of us has our own set of individual tones (numbers). When we combine each tone together, we can hear our personal song (all of our numbers blended into a whole). In the same way, we can combine each individual person's song and come up with one universal song which reflects the entire collective of human beings. Imagining this metaphor will help you understand the Intensification of Numbers.
As we examine the collective human race, we find that certain tones (numbers) are more expressed than others. Subsequently, other tones or numbers make up less of the whole. We'll be using the word "average" to express this concept.
It is also possible to see where we may have a 'Hidden Passion' or possible 'Karmic Lesson.' As the excessive numbers often reveal a deep seated passion, and the missing numbers can point to a Karmic Lesson.

The General Rules

The following illustrates averages of the numbers 1 - 9 found within a name. The numbers 1, 5 and 9 are found most often. Here's a summary of each number as expressed collectively:
1 - We all have free will and initiative to create our place within the world. This has given us initiative to grow and expand as a race of beings as well as individuals.
5 - We have a strong desire for freedom and are curious about what is new and innovative. Through the 5 we progress, develop, and expand our sense of possibility.
9 - We are resilient even when life brings us difficulties or tragedy. We move into our hearts to help, love, and forgive.
The numbers 2, 3, and 4 are usually only found once within a name.
Sometimes the 3 will be repeated because of the desire for creativity and self-expression.
Because these three vibrations usually only appear once, they are doubled in force if found more than once.
The number 7 may be missing.
In the collective of human nature, the discrimination, analysis, and perfection that a 7 carries is not as frequent as the numbers listed above.
In many names the 7 may not even be represented. Because of averages, if the 7 is missing it is not significant.
If a 7 does occur, it gives a desire to prove, reason, and understand the motives that are behind any event.
The number 8 may also be missing.
It is common for a successful person to lack this number.
If it appears once you will know this person can work under stressful situations.
If there are too many 8's, the person may put themselves through a lot of pressure, mental challenge, and possibly achieve great attainments because of the incredible effort.

Benefits of Understanding Intensification

The Intensification of Numbers within the name are felt deep within the character. They may not show on the surface as the Core Numbers do. However, it is useful to understand these energies since they help us gain insight in several ways:
  1. They help us to understand why we may repeat patterns.
  2. They point to areas where we may feel an inner void, or have a karmic lesson.
  3. They point to areas where we may lack experience or development from previous lives.
  4. They may show us why we rely on certain skills.
  5. They may show us where we obsess or perhaps where we have a hidden passion eager for more room to express.

Number Average Chart

The following chart shows what usually occurs in a name:
Usually occurs three or four times three or four
2 BKT Usually occurs once one
3 CLU Usually occurs once one
4 DMV Usually occurs once one
5 ENW Usually occurs three or four times three or four
6 FOX Usually occurs once one
7 GPY May be missing zero
8 HQZ Usually occurs once or be missing zero or one
9 IR Usually occurs three times three

How to Fill Out the Chart

We have prepared a blank chart that you can print out that will make it easy for you to create your own Intensification of Numbers chart like the one below. Please click here to go to that page and print out the blank chart. Hopefully you have a printer available. If not, just reproduce it on a piece of paper. Then return back to this spot to continue your learning.
Here are the steps:
  1. In the first row, write down on the chart the first, middle, and last name of the person whose chart you are calculating.
  2. In the next row, look up and write down the number that corresponds to each letter in the first, middle, and last names.
  3. In the "Core" column, write "Yes" in front of any number that is also one of the Core Numbers and place it's abbreviation after the "Yes". Here's the legend of abbreviations:
LP - Life Path LP - Life Path (Birth Day is included in the Birth Force)
E - Expression E - Expression
HD - Heart's Desire HD - Heart's Desire
P - Personality P - Personality
  1. In the  "+ or -" column, place a plus or minus sign after the numbers where there is a difference from the averages. Use a plus for more and a minus for less.
  2. Now note the relationship with the average. For example, two 4's would have a greater significance than four 9's. Look for the "Key Modifier" (also called the "Intensifier" in Numerology). This is the one number that has the most excessive energy available and stands out the most in relationship to the average. You can write the word "Key" after the plus. To illustrate we highlighted the Key Modifier by color on our chart.
  3. Next, look for whatever number(s) are void. If it is any number other than 7, place a minus next to it.
  4. Note if the void number(s) are also within the Core Number. If so, the effect is lessened. If the void energy is not found as a Core Number, place the word "Key" after it as well.

Explanation of Meaning

Where excess energy exists, we will use the energy to achieve, grow, and acquire in relationship to the number. If we find areas that are void, be assured that we want to round out our character and attain life lessons in these areas. Some Numerologists feel a voided number is a karmic area or one that we may have avoided in previous lives for some reason or another. It may be that experiences were not available to us and we are now wishing to add knowledge during this life.

Learning Example

For this lesson we will again use the name Barbara Ann Kelly as our example. Follow along as we interpret the chart.
Ann Kelly
  2192191 155 25337
Core Amount + or - Number Letter Average
Yes - LP 4
three or four
Yes - E 3 + Key 2 BKT one

2 + 3 CLU one
Yes - P 0 - 4 DMV one

5 ENW three or four

0 - 6 FOX one
Yes - HD 1 + 7 GPY zero

8 HQZ zero or one

2 - 9 IR three

Let's start by noting which numbers are in excess (+ sign in the "+ or -" column) of the averages:
  1. 1 - She has four occurrence's of the number 1 which is slightly in excess of the low end of the three or four average. However, all of the 1's bridge to her 1 Life Path and strengthen it.
  2. 2 - She has three occurrences of the number 2 which is way above the average of one and makes 2 her Key Modifier. But just as above, this "excessive" number is her Expression and one of her Core Numbers. Therefore the 2 bridges to her 11/2 Expression and strengthens the qualities found there. What may be excessive compared to the averages is actually another strengthening force for Barbara.
  3. 3-She has two occurrences of the number 3 which is one above average. This would tell us that she would add a quality of lightness to events and surroundings within her life. This may show up as humor, or possibly a joyful nature added to her spirit.
  4. 7 - She has one occurrence of the number 7 which is higher than the average of zero. However, once again the 7 bridges to her 7 Heart's Desire and strengthens it as well.
So, three of her Core Numbers are found in excess in the Intensification of Numbers Chart but all numbers appear to be supportive. Remember, "excessive" does not mean "bad".
Now we want to look at the energies that are void. Here we see that the 4 and 6 stand out. As we mentioned in "The General Rules" above, the 8 is sometimes found as missing in a name:
  1. 4 - She has zero occurrences of the number 4 which is one below the average of one. The 4 is also one of her Core Numbers, so she has some experience with it. However, with the 4 missing in her name and it being the Personality vibration, she may have some additional lessons here. Possibly she has to learn how to apply herself in ways that would fulfill her, rather than being busy taking care of everyone else. The reason for interpreting the 4 this way is that the zero (void of energy) points us to lessons about application and duty. Because the 4 is a Core Number and is placed on her Personality, it relates to how others see her and how they may try to direct her.
  2. 6 - She has zero occurrences of the number 6 which is one below the average of one. It's possible that Barbara may attract opportunities to help her learn how to balance responsibility. She may have the challenge of taking on too much responsibility for others or becoming confused about taking action on her own behalf. The 6 also points to creativity, relationships, and humanitarian endeavors. So she may have some added lessons in these areas.
  3. 8 - The 8 is borderline and often does not occur within a person's name. Therefore, we have not included it in our interpretation.
We feel that the intensification modifiers are really a lot like road signs. Unlike the Core Numbers that make up our nature, the intensification modifiers point us to areas that we know will be examined throughout our life as lessons. Whether in excess or void we are pointed in the direction of improving the qualities of our nature.

Numerology Home Play

  1. Get your pen and pad out and refer back to the names with which you have previously been working.
  2. Use the blank Intensification of Numbers Chart you printed or created and follow the seven steps detailed above in "How to Fill Out the Chart".
  3. Note which numbers are in excess of the averages.
  4. Note which numbers are void.
  5. Note the single Key Modifier for the excess energy and what lessons may be encountered by its presence.
  6. Note the numbers that are void and what lessons may be encountered by the lack of their presence. Remember to notice the relationship with the Core Numbers.

Numerology Lesson 13 - The Habit Challenge

Numerology Lesson 13 - The Habit Challenge

In the last three Numerology lessons, we discussed several Key Modifiers that influence the Core Elements found in a Numerology chart. This Numerology lesson features a trait we call the "Habit Challenge". Some Numerologists refer to this aspect as the "Point of Security". Both names describe the nature of this aspect quite well. Although it is not exactly a modifier of Core Elements, the Habit Challenge does influence the flow of energy available to them.

Have you ever felt a habit or a repeated pattern that was hard to identify? No matter how aware of the pattern you became, it continued to occur over and over? Your Habit Challenge may shed some light on this subject. The Habit Challenge is just what is sounds like--a habit we feel challenged by which is usually negative. Because all numbers have a polarity as well as a balanced state, the Habit Challenge is usually experienced as an extreme (under-balanced or over-balanced) rather than a balanced vibration. Our challenge is to learn how to balance its influence. This trait then becomes positive and empowering.

Often stress, confusion, and insecurity are energies that create the reactions found in the Habit Challenge. When a person becomes aware of the reactions, they can choose to bring the extremes into a nurturing and balanced state. Like all vibrations that exist within an individual chart, synergy can enhance the individual parts.

Habit Challenge Chart

Determining a Habit Challenge is quite simple. It is the total letters in a name added together. In other words, rather than adding the value of each letter, like in previous lessons, we add the total number of letters together and reduce them to one single digit.

Barbara Ann Kelly
7 letters 3 letters 5 letters
7 + 3 + 5 = 15
1 + 5 = 6 Habit Challenge

Chart Interpretation

In Barbara's case we find a 6 for her Habit Challenge. We can speculate that Barbara may vacillate between the under-balanced and over-balanced aspects of the 6, attempting to balance them. She may become over-attached to her home, family, and environment. So much so that she finds it hard to extend herself beyond her familiar environment. She could also find herself giving advice, living her dreams through others, or perhaps becoming over-responsible. Another trait of an under-balanced 6 could be avoiding responsibility involving others and perhaps failing to keep appointments or obligations. When balanced a 6 Habit Challenge can become a very creative and resourceful asset to have.

For ease, we created possible descriptions for each number. You may want to add to our descriptions. As creative beings, there are many possible Habit Challenge expressions. We listed a few to help you along. Have fun and see what other possible expressions you come up with.

Possible Habit Challenge Responses

During this course we've asked you to use your intuition regarding how a given number would express as under-balanced or over-balanced. We'll now present some specific examples for each number. Although we are presenting these descriptions in relationship to the Habit Challenge, they are not restricted to this subject alone. The following descriptions apply to each of the numbers in context, including the Core Elements. Refer to Numerology Lesson One for the balanced descriptions.

1 Habit Challenge - Leadership:
  • Under-balanced - insecure, dependent, passive
  • Over-balanced - bossy, opinionated, dominating
When acting in an under-balanced way, the 1 may respond in a procrastinating manner, be indecisive, and act in vacillating ways. The 1's natural assertive nature could become over-balanced and result in a response that is bossy, impatient, stubborn, impulsive, and over-attached to ones own beliefs.

2 Habit Challenge - Peacemaking:
  • Under-balanced - indecisive, dependent, uncertain
  • Over-balanced - oversensitive, disapproving, unsupportive
As an under-balanced response, it may be hard to maintain a sense of identity because of a desire to please. The 2 as an over-balanced response may become fussy over little things and caught up in details.

3 Habit Challenge - Expression:
  • Under-balanced - unfocused, vacillating, anxious
  • Over-balanced - exaggerating, gossipy, lacking in concentration
As an under-balanced habit it can exaggerate, become self indulgent, and be without direction. A 3 is creative and expressive so when it becomes an over-balanced response it can lead to scattered energies, starting many tasks, and finding it hard to focus.

4 Habit Challenge - Form:
  • Under-balanced - disorganized, narrow, uncertain
  • Over-balanced - headstrong, limited, antagonistic
A 4, as an under-balanced response can expect a lot of others and fail to commit itself. When over-balanced, it can become too serious and careful, often creating opposition. In addition, it could become so attached to methods that it forgets to see the big picture, getting caught up in details.

5 Habit Challenge - Freedom:
  • Under-balanced - non progressive, cautious, doubtful
  • Over-balanced - erratic, impulsive, careless
The 5 could respond in an under-balanced way by escaping reality through indulgent means. With an over-balance response there could be a possibility of changing directions too often before results are evident. This instability could effect relationships and career.

6 Habit Challenge - Responsibility:
  • Under-balanced - distant, self seeking, unorganized
  • Over-balanced - discontent, overemotional, over-responsible
When the 6 is under-balanced, its response may be to avoid responsibility involving others, perhaps failing to keep appointments or obligations. The 6 Habit Challenge can become very attached to its home, family, and environment. When it becomes over-balanced, it may live through others or possibly desire to give unsolicited advice.

7 Habit Challenge - Individuality:
  • Under-balanced - disregarded, superficial, undeveloped
  • Over-balanced - resentful, hypercritical, secretive
If responding in an under-balanced expression, it can act in over-analytical and critical ways and can even become cut off from its own deep feelings. An over-balanced response can become very detached, shut people out, and hold onto resentments.

8 Habit Challenge - Manifestation:
  • Under-balanced - powerless, impoverished, undisciplined
  • Over-balanced - tactless, pushy, possessive
When under-balanced, material success and motivation may be lacking. When an 8 becomes over-balanced, it may take its effective work characteristics into friendships and home life. In addition, intimidation and manipulation may become a way of attaining results as well as trying to do everything and forgetting to delegate.

9 Habit Challenge - Compassion:
  • Under-balanced - passionless, oppressive, aloof
  • Over-balanced - unaccountable, impractical, dreamer
If expressing in an under-balanced way, it can be somewhat cold or detached, feeling that it is being broad-minded. In addition, it can become a jack of all trades and master of none. The 9 can become moody and filled with ups and downs. Over-balance can be expressed as too dreamy and impractical or too generous for its own good.

A Note On Master Numbers - Both 11/2 and 22/4 can be read as either their master vibration of their digited down vibration. Master vibrations represent a much higher frequency. When a 11/2 or 22/4 cannot hold the higher frequency, they will revert to either a 2 or a 4 respectively. So, also refer to the under-balanced and over-balanced aspects of the 2 and the 4 when analyzing the 11/2 and 22/4.

11/2 Habit Challenge - Illumination:
  • Under-balanced - aimless, fearful of psychic abilities, submissive
  • Over-balanced - extreme nervousness, misguided, obsessed
22/4 Habit Challenge - Master Builder:
  • Under-balanced - lethargic, spiritless, inactive
  • Over-balanced - extreme tension, overwhelmed, controlling
The purpose of pointing out the under-balanced and over-balanced traits that may occur from a Habit Challenge, is to help identify possible patterns. Once identified, an individual can become conscious and work towards balancing the negative traits into a positive and creative response rather than a reactive one. We have found that once the Habit Challenge is embraced, it can them be balanced and brought into an energy which can be an impetus for success.

When working with the Habit Challenge, also pay attention to the other Core Element numbers. The Habit Challenge may be easier to balance if it has harmonious energies to help it along. If other Core Elements are Discordant, the Habit Challenge may be a little more difficult to direct into a positive and balanced resource.

Numerology Lesson 14 - The Maturity Number

Calculating the Maturity Number
It is quite simple to find out what your Maturity Number is. Add your Life Path Number (Lesson 4) and Your Expression Number (Lesson 6) together.

Next, reduce these two numbers to a single digit. Remember if you find the Master Numbers of either 11 or 22, there is no need to reduce them to a single digit. However, you do have the choice of embracing the opportunities found in the 11 or the 2 if an 11 is your Maturity Number. If you have the Master Number 22, you can embrace the 22 or the 4. As mentioned in previous lessons, when we have a Master Number for a final digit, it is sometimes difficult to remain at the high vibration that exists with in the Master Number. In these cases it is quite perfect to identify with the other number.

Numerology Chart Interpretation

Since we know Barbara's age (you always do as a Numerologist!), we can tell that the influence of the Maturity Number is already present. She may even be wondering where she can find new directions for opportunity, growth, and satisfaction in her life. In addition, she may be wondering what lies ahead for her latter years.

Knowing that she has a 3 Maturity Number should give her much encouragement. It wants to bring qualities of joy, creativity, and pleasure throughout her latter years. This Maturity Number wishes to lighten up her life. If she has felt burdened or that complexities have kept her from feeling free, this vibration surely wants to simplify her life and point her in a direction of what really matters! We have a feeling that life will present her with opportunities to embrace some of the simper joys of living. More expression wants to come into her life-- more play, friends, and creative outlets. She may have to watch to not scatter her energies, but by the time a person expresses their Maturity Number, they usually have learned how to balance the energies found within the numbers.

Numerology Lesson 15 - The Personal Year

In previous Numerology lessons we learned the essentials that describe our character, motivations, and opportunities. Now let's go one step further and find out how one's individual nature is effected by the timing of events and cyclic influences that exist in a Numerology Chart. In Numerology there are two types of Cyclic Vibrations:
  1. Key Cyclic Vibrations
  2. Personal Cyclic Vibrations
Through the next several lessons these various vibrations will be the topic of discussion. In this lesson we feature the Personal Cyclic Vibration of the Personal Year. Since the Personal Month and Personal Day are part of the Personal Year, we'll show you how to calculate them as well.

The Personal Year is a vibration that you can immediately recognize and receive benefit from. Have you ever noticed how during some years you felt very restless and eager to begin new undertakings? Or that in other years you felt quite content to stay at home, work on your environment, and focus on your family. Then again, some years you might have felt like you were letting go of much with which you previously identified and that you felt anticipation about the future. What we are describing is the influence that The Personal Year can have on you. We really do create our lives with a certain rhythm and there are optimal times to initiate new tasks.

The Personal Year's rhythm is based on the vibrations of 1 - 9. The Personal Year is the most illuminating when you are facing a decision or wanting to know the probability of certain events. Each year you work through one of the nine Personal Years since the Personal Years run concurrently. They start on January 1st and continue through Dec 31st. At the end of the year you begin the next Personal Year. For example, if you are in a 9 Personal Year this year, on January 1st you will enter a 1 Personal Year.

Just as we have an individual Personal Year vibration, there is also a Universal Year that describes the general planetary vibration during the entire year. The Universal Year runs with our calendar year. It is quite simple to calculate:
  • Add the numbers of the current year
  • Reduce them to a single digit from 1 to 9
Sometimes in a 2 year the Master Number of 11 will be present. Be sure and add correctly to make sure you get the correct number. The same is true in a 4 personal year, the Master Number of 22 may be present.

Universal Year Chart

Using the Year of 1999 for our example:
1 + 9 + 9 + 9 = 28
2 + 8 = 1 Universal Year

Using the Year 2000 as our example:
2 + 0 + 0 + 0 = 2
2 Universal Year

Personal Year Chart

Now that we know the Universal Year, we are ready to calculate our Personal Year. To figure out what your Personal Year is, add your month and day of birth to the Universal Year.
Birth Month + Day of Birth + Universal Year = Personal Year

Personal Year Vibrations

The Personal Year embraces each number's individual qualities and applies them as the energy needed to initiate, cultivate, expand, progress, and eventually reap the rewards of a cycle of experience. The individual energies within each number express themselves in a natural organic rhythm that cultivates human potential and growth. To refresh your memory Numerology Lesson One describes the numbers in greater detail.

It makes sense that a 1 would lead our experience and a 9 would conclude, holding within it the knowledge, compassion, and understanding gained from a full cycle of experience. Once we conclude a full cycle through the 9 Personal Years, we start all over again. The following definitions will give you some guidance in how to apply each number's energies to the direction contained in a Personal Year.

1 Personal Year
This is a new beginning time. Embrace courage, openness, and initiate new ideas. Energy is behind you supporting new directions, self definition, and new ideas. Follow your dreams and begin cultivating what really motivates you. It is not a time to wait around as you could miss out on what this year has to offer. You really are setting the pace for the next nine years.

2 Personal Year
This year requires cooperation, patience, and continued development of what you began last year. Time is needed to put everything into motion. Continue to focus on your motivations and step by step progress so that what you began last year can further develop. Relationships are also an area of focus throughout the year.

3 Personal Year
This year wants to expand your life and focus. It brings increased activity and recognition. Enthusiasm moves into the picture. You may find yourself quite busy with more social interaction. Seeds can be planted in the hearts and minds of those around you. If you become confused by too many directions, pick the one that excites you the most. Expression and Creativity are highlighted.

4 Personal Year
Organization is key in this year including continued development and focus. You may feel a little restricted in some ways but keep in mind the reward ahead from you efforts. This is a foundation year and asks you to finish details where continued support is needed.

5 Personal Year
This year promises rewards and progress from what you developed the previous four years. Often opportunities come your way to advance in various directions. The year asks for flexibility, and may bring some risks, but rewards are what the year wishes to bring. Sometimes relationships at a distance and travel are highlighted.

6 Personal Year
Relationships with family, friends, and co-workers is key this year. The spotlight shines more on domestic matters. Love interests are often highlighted as well as the passion that connects us to our creativity. There is also a focus on self-love, connection, and nurturing.

7 Personal Year
This is somewhat of a sabbatical time. Much is gained through reflection and personal refinement. You may want to ask yourself some important questions like what your Life Purpose is and what you want your life to be like. It is a time for seeking a deeper understanding into your inner nature. Solitude is often needed in order to quiet your mind and get in touch with what really matters to you.

8 Personal Year
After the reflection of last year, it is time to move from the inner world into the outer world and manifest in greater ways what you have been working toward during the last seven years. Material issues, career, and worldly accomplishments come to the forefront. Organization is again important and monetary gain is possible.

9 Personal Year
Much like the 7 Personal Year the 9 invites you to pay special attention to your inner world. You have graduated from a cycle of experience. It is a time for completing many areas of experience so that you can move freely into the next cycle ahead without carrying forward outgrown or unneeded baggage. There is a letting go of the old as anticipation of future possibilities exists within you. Gratefulness and compassion are especially important at this time.

11 Personal Year
Unless Master Numbers are noted in the Core Aspects of the individual's chart, the 11 Personal Year is usually approached as a 2 Personal Year. In the case where the 11 is embraced, it would benefit an individual to utilize their intuitive, spiritual, and inspirational talents to direct their affairs. Contribution to humanity and inspiring others is usually part of the agenda.

22 Personal Year
Again, unless Master Numbers are evident in the Core Aspects of an individual's chart, it is quite difficult to approach the year as a 22 would indicate. Therefore, the 4 would direct the energies. If the 22 is embraced, you can expect much to be accomplished since this Master Number wants to create on a large scale. Like the 11, the 22 requires a certain devotion to the well-being of others and the goodness of humanity. A universal approach is necessary to fully engage in this Master Number vibration.

Personal Year Example

November 26th + Current Universal Year
11 + 2 6 + 1999
11 + 8 + 1 = 20/2 Personal Year
Using the example of Barbara's Birthday, we note that she is in a 2 Personal Year. By referring to the Personal Year descriptions, we know that she is in her second year of a new cycle which began last year. The best way to direct energies this year is to further develop the ideas that she aspired to last year. Patience and time are her tools along with the cooperation of others. A 2 Personal Year also highlights friendships and relationships. When doing a chart, always note when the Personal Year corresponds with a Core Element or any other major element. Because Barbara's Destiny is an 11/2, this year may further her along with opportunities that are part of her most beneficial life experiences. This is a splendid time to enjoy a more relaxed pace. The 3 Personal Year that follows will certainly pick up the pace!

Personal Months and Personal Days
Within our Personal Year we also have Personal Months and Personal Days. A Personal Month or Personal Day is similar in vibration, however its meaning is tailored to the actions of the particular number represented for the month or day. In other words, you would apply the same qualities that are noted in the examples previously mentioned to a monthly or daily experience.

Personal Month Chart
It is simple to calculate your Personal Month. Now that you know what your Personal Year is, add it to the current month and you have your Personal Month vibration. We will use the month of May and Barbara's Personal Year for our example.

May + 2 Personal Year
5 + 2 = 7 Personal Month

Because Barbara is in a 7 Personal Month in May, we know that the month requires deeper reflection and analysis to further her along in her 2 Personal Year. During the month of May, refining ideas and projects, continued personal development, and educating herself in areas that represent her goals will add to the development of her 2 Personal Year and this cycle of her life.

Personal Day Chart

Each day of the month has its own Personal Day vibration for each individual. To find a Personal Day, add the Personal Month to the calendar day in question. Again using Barbara for an example, and the random date of May 13th, we would find her in an 11 Personal Day. Remember to apply the Master Number comments above.

Personal Month + Current Day Digit
7 Personal Month + (Current Day = Example: May 13th) 13/4 = 11 Personal Day

This day is a good one for spiritual pursuit and self care. It is also a grand day to pay attention to intuition and creativity. Perhaps an opportunity will present itself to help a friend or share a delightful experience. It could also be a day that requires a little patience in some ways, because it is a more internal day than one that is externally demanding.

The vibration found in your Personal Day can help you determine when it is a good time to initiate a direction, sleep in and take it easy, help others, travel, rest, study, etc. Of course,  planning our life wholly by what is represented in the Personal Days isn't realistic. However, we can get a good idea of how our energy might flow each day and how to best utilize the energies available.


Firstly, note and pay attention to your Personal Year. The force of the year is best realized in the months between March and September. September is the month where the Personal Year will be most evident. Why? Because September is a 9 (the 9th month) and when you add 9 to any other number, it will always digit back down to the other number. Check it out! Therefore, September will mirror the vibration of whatever Personal Year you are in. Then the last three months of each year begin to prepare you for the coming new year.

Secondly, note your current Personal Month. This will help you plan and time various stages throughout the year. Lastly, note your Personal Day. For example, on some days you will need extra time to reflect throughout the day, where other days you will feel eager to accomplish and get things done.
