Understanding Your Personal Year
Ex: If your birthday is January 27, and you want to know your Personal Year number for 2006, you would add:
(Month 01) + (Date: - 27 2 + 7 = 9) + (Universal Year: 2 + 0 + 0 + 6 = 8)
1 + 9 + 8 = 18 = 1 + 8 = 9
The year 2006 is a 9 Personal Year for a person whose birthday is January 27.
Interpreting Your Personal Year
Of course, knowing your Personal Year doesn't do you much good if you don't know what each year means. While there are many other influences at play throughout the year, including Personal Month Numbers and Personal Day Numbers, your Personal Year number will give you a general feel for what is going on in your life during the year.
A note about your birthday: Many numerologists will tell you that your Personal Year begins on your birthday each year. The Personal Year is influenced by the Universal Year, so your Personal Year will be in effect throughout the calendar year. However, its influence will be more strongly felt in the months closest to your birthday month, while the preceding and succeeding years' influences will also be felt in the months before and after your birthday.
