Personal Year 1
In Numerology, the personal year number is used to give you a brief synopsis of what you can expect in the upcoming year. According to Numerology, everything in the Universe is made up of vibrational energy.
The vibrational essence of everything in the Universe can be associated with the energetic essence of a number.
The best way to think about it is to use a radio or TV tuner as an example. A radio uses an antenna to capture radio signals, but to pick up a specific station it must be tuned to that frequency.
If you tune your radio to 101.5 you can’t expect to hear the programming for 92.7.
To find out what numerological frequency you are tuned into, Numerologists turn to your date of birth and the name you were given at birth.
All of the numbers in your Numerology chart are based on either your date of birth or your birth name, and these numbers will give reliable information concerning the vibrational energies that are informing your life.
Cycles of Personal Year Numbers
Have you ever wondered why some years are more prosperous than others? Why is it in a time when there is widespread economic turbulence, some people are experiencing the most prosperous years of their lives?
Personal year numbers allow us to anticipate the opportunities and possible pitfalls that may be around the corner in the coming year and prepare or take advantage accordingly.
Personal years come in cycles that are based on the 9 root numbers in Numerology. Each personal year shares the same vibrational essence as its foundational root number.
Just like a week has seven days, the cycle of personal years is 9, beginning with personal year 1 and concluding with personal year 9, then starting over again.
As we move through our lives, we go through cycles of gain and decline, positive and negative energies that provide the opportunities and challenges that we experience.
To a certain extent we can prepare for the challenges that may arise and take advantage of the opportunities that are likely to appear when we understand where we are in the cycle of personal years.
Calculating Our Personal Year
The first step to calculating your personal year is to calculate the Universal Year number. We derive the universal year number reducing the numbers of the year that we are currently living in:
2017 = 2 + 0 + 1 + 7 = 10
1 + 0 = 1
Then you take your date of birth and reduce it to a root number. For instance, if you were to reduce June 2, 1972 to a root number you would get 9. This number would be the same as your Life Path Number. Now you add this number to the Universal Year Number and you get your Personal Year Number:
9 + 1 = 10
1 + 0 = 1
In 2017, a person born on June 2, 1972 would have a personal year number of 1.
What to Expect in a 1 Personal Year
Personal year 1 is the best year to undertake anything that is important to you in the realm of business or creative action. Number 1 is associated with the emergence of new projects, leadership, originality and creativity.
If there is anything that you have always wanted to do, a 1 year is the year to do it.
The number 1 is associated with the Magician in the Major Arcana of the Tarot, who takes a leadership position and is extremely creative. The Magician has all of the creative energy and skill necessary to accomplish anything he wishes.
There is no better time to take up a new creative venture, start a business or undertake a new commercial initiative than a 1 personal year.
1 Personal Years and Partnerships
A 1 personal year is the ideal year to get married but it is not necessarily the best year to enter into a business partnership. In a marriage you have two lives merging into one which is ideal for a 1 personal year.
However, in business, in a 1 personal year it is necessary to go it alone. A 1 personal year is the year in which you can initiate new endeavors and take significant action that will have far reaching consequences.
The 1 Year and New Beginnings
The 1 year is a time of new beginnings, which means that it will be full of new opportunities, both professional and personal. While new beginnings may be exciting, they can also be frightening, so it is important to prepare.
Start by clearly defining your goals, put yourself in a leadership position and watch for the negative aspects of the 1 energy — ego driven stubbornness and reckless behavior.
Challenges of a 1 Year
While the 1 year is associated with the Magician card in the Tarot, it is important to also realize what this may mean in a psychological sense. In psychology, the number 1 is associated with the energy of ego.
The Magician is a pioneer, a leader and an original, but this type of person may also get caught up in ego concerns.
When ego takes over any process or project, it can undermine your effectiveness and bring progress to a screeching halt.
When you take on leadership in this 1 personal year, it is important to check yourself for any sign of stubborn or reckless behavior or hastiness in action.
To keep ego at bay as everything is suddenly turning in your favor, remember that you are only at the beginning of a new cycle of years in this 1 year.
As good as things are, you have a long way to go!
