I’ve studied and worked with both astrology and numerology for over 20 years. Each year brings a different energetic vibration, which continues over a nine-year cycle then begins again.
Thinking about taking a retreat but not sure which direction to go in? Find out how to calculate your personal numerology year to help select your retreat journey and make the most of your time.
To calculate your personal numerology year add the day you are born plus month to current year. For example I’m born on 4 May and it’s 2013. So 4 + 5 + 2 + 1 + 3 = 15. You break the double digit to a single number. 1+ 5 = 6. This means on my birthday this year in 2013 I will move from a 5 personal year to a 6 personal year vibration. Some numerologists calculate from the start of the year, through my own research I’ve found the energy changes take place around your birthday.
The 1 personal year starts your new cycle. This year brings new beginnings and independence. Energy is increased for new projects. Focus on your goals now because it will have an impact on what happens over your following 9 year cycle. Embrace your new cycle with a new years retreat. Reap the benefits from a solo or adventure retreat, focussing on your personal development with some life coaching.
The 2 represents partnerships, creativity and spirituality. Your 2 personal numerology year is more introspective; relationships come to focus with increased intuition. Listen to music you love, try a beach or surf retreat to refresh. The benefits of yoga meditation retreats will be increased this year. Alternatively try a creative art or sound retreat.
The 3 like a spring bounces back at every opportunity. This is your year for fun, communication, parties and people, short trips and networking. Make the most of this year focussing on goals from your 1 personal year. You’ll find yourself in the right place at the right time and benefit from connections made. Organise a group retreat with friends for a fun filled retreat and relaxing holiday full of communication.
The 4 if joined at the top resembles a pyramid. Like building the great pyramids your 4 personal numerology year is about working hard to create a solid foundation. You’ll feel busier than usual – like you’re on a treadmill at times. Restrictions of all kinds can surface, sometimes unexpectedly. Take breaks when you can. Time out to a relaxation retreat will do wonders.
The 5 is open front and back – it brings freedom from last years restrictions, travel and new connections. If you feel like leaving your job, home or relationship, be aware a 5 personal numerology year can bring more of a restless energy. Take a holiday instead if you can. An adventure retreat or new holiday location will help you centre. Learn to focus in your 5 personal year and you’ll discover opportunities.
The 6 is pregnant with love (see the 6’s belly sticking out?) This year is about relationships, meeting your soulmate, marriage, animals and children. It brings harmony into life. It can rekindle a current relationship or bring issues of love to focus on – what you’ve given will be returned. Take your partner on holiday to a romantic retreat, watch the sunset and enjoy. Our animals need holidays too, book a pet friendly retreat with your family for everyone to enjoy.
The 7 resembles a wise persons walking cane. This year is more solitary – good for studying, writing or taking time out to a peaceful holiday location to reflect on life. Spirituality is increased. If you feel alone, know this is needed to recharge and rebalance. Try a silent, healing or metaphysical retreat this year – or if you love the ocean a surf yoga retreat. You’ll greatly benefit from regular yoga classes,meditation and swimming.
The 8 brings abundance and represents heaven balancing on earth. This year you reap what you have sown over the past 7 years – like a karmic balance. You’ll have increased energy. It’s important to use your ‘powers’ wisely now or you will feel the effects come back to you. Money can be channelled easier and your career can take a huge leap. Improve your wellbeing with a health or cycling retreat. It’s the perfect time to indulge in a luxury retreat with the abundant energies flowing.
The 9 has looped all the other numbers and has come back to itself. This year brings the end of your cycle. It’s important to think about what’s working in your life and what isn’t – be open to change now. You might want to travel, leave your job or re-visit a current relationship. If certain things are not working to improve your life and you don’t want to let go, you’ll find this year they are removed for you. You’ll then be ready for your fresh new personal numerology year of 1 and commence your cycle again. Renew with an ayurvedic, full moon or Zen silent retreat this year.
What personal year are you in and how is it affecting you?
