Have you ever wondered how your life will unfold this year or the next? There is a way or practice in numerology which you can use to gain clarity on what’s ahead. And that is through forecasting with Personal Year Cycle.
And we can narrow it down further by going into our Personal Month and Personal Day, painting a roadmap for us.
If you are looking for some directions in life at the moment, I would recommend you consider trying this method as it is simple to calculate using your birth date.
Let me take you through the whole process in the sections below.
What is a Personal Year Cycle?
A Personal Year Cycle in numerology is a cycle that repeats every 9 years.
Each of these 9 years is like a theme, where you will feel the energy vibration resonating stronger.
Knowing which Personal Year you are in now will help give you a big-picture overview of what you should focus on for that year.
To help you visualise this better, imagine you are in Personal Year Number 9.
This is the last year of a Personal Year Cycle, and it is a year where we have to start making a choice whether to continue our present state or move on to do something else.
And it can be from the perspective of your career, business, or relationship. Personal Year Number 9 is a time of reflection or realisation of whether you are happy with your present state of life.
Knowing what you want, you will become better prepared as you start your new cycle in Personal Year Number 1 to double down or change course.
Many people may not realise that they are already doing this unknowingly. And that includes me.
As I looked back on my life, I discovered I actually changed my career on a Personal Year Number 1, twice.
Well, one can say it could just be a coincidence since people may change jobs quite often. But in my case, I served two companies for 7 and 9 years, respectively.
Whatever it is, the essence of the Personal Year Cycle is to give us a framework to plan our lives ahead so that we may feel more confident knowing what to expect.
And from the Personal Year Number, you can further calculate your Personal Month Number and Personal Day Number.
Each of these numbers will guide you on what you should focus on in the respective timeframe so that you are aligned with your personal energy vibration.
Let us go through how to do so in each of the sections below.
How to calculate your Personal Year Number?
And now to the D.I.Y part. To calculate your Personal Year Number, take the Day and Month of your birthdate, add it to the current year, and then reduce it to a single digit.
Let’s use a birthdate of 10th January 1969 as an example. In the normal numerology calculation, we will have the following.
This birthdate has a Character Root Number 9. Let’s say the current year is 2020 now. We will change the year from 1969 to 2020, as shown below.
For a person with the birthdate of 10th January 1969, the Personal Year number will be a number 6 in 2020.
In a simple fashion, you take 1 + 0 + 0 + 1 + 2 + 0 + 2 + 0 = 6.
And for 2021, the Personal Year number will be number 7, followed by Personal Year number 8 in 2022, and lastly, Personal Year number 9 in 2023 to end the cycle.
How to interpret the 9 Personal Year Numbers?
The meaning of the Personal Year numbers is principally similar to the definition of the Character Root Numbers, just that there can be an interconnection from one Personal Year to the next.
Let us go through each of these numbers below.
Personal Year Number 1 – Independent, Leading
This is the year of the beginning, where you have ended your 9 Personal Years from the last cycle.
The new beginning here is an important year where you will think about what you want to do in this cycle.
You might be facing an important chapter in your life, a new direction to take. It is a time of decision-making to set your vision (your why) in this cycle.
Personal Year Number 2 – Eloquence, Convincing
The focus in Personal Year number 2 should be on communication, as the energy vibrations will help you to be more eloquent in what you say and to convince others more easily.
Use the year to reach out to people to share your why or beliefs on what you have decided to embark on in this Personal Year Cycle. Establish your network, build relationships, and gather feedback.
Personal Year Number 3 – Proactive, Taking Action
The focus for Personal Year number 3 is about taking action. The energy vibrations from your personal year will give you the fuel to work towards your dreams.
And especially if you have done your homework well in Personal Year number 1 and 2, you will have plenty to do and deliver.
Personal Year Number 4 – Planning, Thinking
The theme for Personal Year number 4 is about taking stock of what you have embarked on.
It is a year to slow down your pace from the previous year but to step up in planning, thinking, strategising, or reorganisation.
You should find yourself feeling more observant of details and better at analysing things.
Take this time to re-assess your situation, consider how you may do things better, and reaffirm your commitment to what you have decided to do in this Personal Year Cycle.
It is also worthwhile to consider forming a mastermind group if you don’t have one.
Personal Year Number 5 – Ambitious
The theme for Personal Year number 5 is about realising your ambitions.
Unleash the power within you. Be bold, be adventurous, conquer your fears and take the step forward with what you have planned to do.
This could be a year where you bring yourself to the next level. Be open-minded.
Personal Year Number 6 – Wisdom, Wealth
The theme for Personal Year number 6 is about acquiring knowledge or riches.
Through your hard work from previous years, this can be a year where you already starting to enjoy the fruits of your labour.
If not, you are likely to be in a good mental state to pursue what you want.
The year is also about striking a balance, so you may find yourself spending more time with your family.
Personal Year Number 7 – Relationships
The theme for Personal Year number 7 is about relationships. You may find yourself better at handling people or you may be the center of attraction within your circles.
Use the year to improve relationships with your family, friends, or people you work with. Grow your network and build rapport so that you set the stage for the future.
Be humble and grateful to everyone or any event that has helped you grow.
Personal Year Number 8 – Responsibility
The theme for Personal Year number 8 is about taking on new responsibilities or challenges.
The relationships you have forged in the previous year or earlier may help you to take on a higher position. With people’s trust in you comes greater responsibility.
As such, the year can be relatively stressful as a consequence, but you are energetic, active, and courageous to overcome them.
You strive to do your best and deliver as people are relying on you. Take time to unwind and recharge yourself.
Personal Year Number 9 – Success, Opportunities
The last year of your Personal Year Cycle is a conclusion. Ideally, you should have achieved the success you set to do 9 years ago.
And then, it is about preparing yourself to start a new cycle, moving on into another phase of your life.
I would like to share this quote with you:
“When one door closes another door opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us.”Alexander Graham Bell
The Personal Year number 9 is a time for reflection. Have you achieved what you had decided for yourself 9 years ago?
If you have, is it worthwhile to continue what you are doing in the next cycle? Is there still room for you to grow? Are you still feeling passionate about what you do?
If you have not accomplished what you wanted to complete, is it still worth fighting for, or should you move on to new opportunities?
These are some things we should be mindful of to prepare us for the new cycle.
Sometimes, we look back longingly at that closed door and fail to see new opportunities that have opened up in front of us, ready to step in.
Perhaps we should strive to finish any loose end in this cycle and look for new adventures that may arise?
These are by no means easy questions. But the more you invest your time and energy to prepare yourself, the easier it will be for you to decide.
And perhaps the first step to knowing when it is time for you to ponder these questions is to know which Personal Year you are in.
The Personal Year serves as our big picture roadmap to guide us on what we should focus on for a particular year.
How to calculate your Personal Month Number?
As you now know how to calculate and interpret your Personal Year numbers, you can further narrow it down to know your monthly focus by calculating your Personal Month number.
To calculate the Personal Month number, we first need to know the Personal Year number.
Using the same example earlier, the Personal Year Number in 2020 for a person born on 10th January 1969 is Number 6.
And assuming we are in July, the Personal Month number is calculated by adding the numerical value of the month to the Personal Year number and reducing it to a single digit where necessary.
6 + 7 = 13 = 1 + 3 = 4
Similar to how we interpret a Personal Year number, the Personal Month number 4 implies that the month of July is about planning.
How to calculate your Personal Day Number?
To further zoom in to understand what is your personal energy vibration of the day, you can calculate your Personal Day number.
Assuming the date today is 8th July 2020, we calculate the Personal Day number by adding the numerical value of 8 to the Personal Month number as follows, reduced to a single digit:
4 + 8 = 12 = 1 + 2 = 3
Hence, a person born on 10th January 1969 has a Personal Day number 3 on the 8th July 2020. And it means that it is a day for him to take action and be creative.
Create an Annual Planner
With this framework, you can work out a day-by-day planner for yourself for the whole Personal Year Cycle of 9 years, or you can work out an annual planner for a start.
This way, it can help you to plan ahead in alignment with the theme of your personal energy vibration.

6 thoughts on “Forecasting with Personal Year Cycle”
Well, this is coming to me very strangely because I have never heard of something like this before. The personal year seems like something worthy to know of and I would be eager to find out what my personal year is. With the calculation formula you have given, I will be inclined to give it a try too. Thanks
Hi Liza, the personal year cycle can help give you a point of reference to which year are you in, in your 9 personal years. From there, you can get an indication of the direction you can take for that particular year.
There are lots of things that we don’t understand and it’s always very interesting to be able to read through them, it helps us acquire more knowledge and also gives us the chance to better ourselves. Forecasting is a really nice idea and with personal year cycle was where I got blown, it’s nice to read through.
Hi Bolt, thank you for reading the article. It may be slightly more advance for you. You may see forecasting with the Personal Year Cycle as a way to plan out a roadmap for yourself in the next nine years.
Sorry, I don’t really get you. If my birth date is 28 April 1986, what is my forecast for the year 2021?
I calculated my character root number to be 2. And my personal year number in 2021 is 1? Am I right? So I should read the explanation for personal year number 1?
Hi Clark, you are correct. In 2021, your personal year number is 1. It means that you are currently at the end of your 9 year cycle in 2020. So with the year ending, have you achieved what you want to achieve for the past 9 years? It is a year of wrapping up. And are you planning to embark on a new journey in 2021? If so, then this is the year of planning for you and looking at a new direction. You can then read on and use the explanation for each of the years as a guideline.
