Personal Year 3 Numerology Meaning
In Numerology the personal year number is like a map or a GPS that can provide with directions and guidance on how to use the coming year to your best advantage.
Unlike an actual path, which may lead you through a park or a dark wood, your life path leads you through life, which is lived both in time and in your own mind and heart.
The personal year number provides you with both a universal and a personal perspective to help you get the most from the situations and opportunities that may come your way in the coming year.
The Cycle of Personal Years
Though we experience time as a linear progression, the truth is that time is cyclic. The years, months and weeks have a specific duration and repeat over and over again.
Just as the first of the month has a different ‘feeling’ to it than the 20th, the years of our lives are also tuned into a specific vibration. This is how we experience the cycle of personal years.
Personal years carry the influence of the root numbers that inform them, 1-9, and they repeat again and again as we go through life, in 9 year cycles.
In some years it will be easier to complete projects, meet a mate, take up a spiritual practice or improve your career.
By learning the meaning of each personal year, you will be better able to understand what you can do in each year to advance down your life path, and how to best deal with potential setbacks.
Discovering Your Personal Year
Your personal year is calculated by combining your life path or destiny number with the Universal Year Number that is appropriate for the year that you are investigating.
Today, you would take your life path number and add it to the Universal Year Number for 2017 which is 1.
You arrive at the Universal Year Number by adding the individual numbers in the year together and reducing them down to the correct root number. In 2017 it would work like this:
2 + 0 + 1 + 7 = 10
1 + 0 = 1
If you do not know your life path number, you find this by adding up and reducing the individual digits in your date of birth. Someone who was born on August 20, 1990 would find their life path number by adding all of the individual digits together:
8 + 2 + 0 + 1 + 9 + 9 + 0 = 29
2 + 9 = 11
1 + 1 = 2
The final step would be to combine this root number with the Universal Year Number to get your personal year number of 3.
What to Expect in Personal Year 3
In a 3 year your charisma and creative abilities are heightened. This means that a 3 year is good for personal, professional and romantic relationships.
Your ability to relate with people in effective and beneficial ways will be highlighted during a 3 year, which means that it is sure to be an enjoyable time in your life.
In 3 personal years it is a good idea not to tie yourself down. If you are single, enjoy the cast of characters that comes into your life during this creative and joy-filled time.
When people look back and say that this or that time was the best time of their lives, they are usually talking about a 3 personal year.
Deeper Meaning of the 3 Personal Year
The number 3 is associated with the Major Arcana card called The Empress in the Tarot. She comes after the first two cards which assert the active and passive principles of life.
Both are equally valid and called for at certain times in life.
In philosophy there is a procedure called dialectics, which is based on the ideas of the German philosopher Hegel.
The Hegelian Dialectic, as it is called, states that historical events occur in a 3 step process called thesis, antithesis and synthesis. If number 1 asserts the thesis, and 2 the antithesis, then the 3 represents the synthesis or solution.
In our experience we will see problems arise in 1 and 2 years that seem intractable when they occur. But in a 3 personal year we have the creativity and intelligence to solve those problems effectively.
What to Concentrate on in a 3 Year
This does not mean that you should spend your entire 3 year looking for problems to solve and things to fix. A 3 personal year is bound to be very relaxed and filled with fun and joy.
Do not over-dramatize situations, thinking that you have to take care of all of your problems. Let things arise naturally and you will find yourself enjoying life to the fullest.
If you are a creative person, an artist or writer, in a 3 year you will have heightened creative powers and your mind will be chocked full of brilliant ideas.
Remember, just around the corner you have a 4 personal year on the way, which will be dedicated to hard work.
Jot down your thoughts and dreams, keep a notebook or a journal dedicated to all of the great ideas that seem to pop effortlessly into your mind. Then later, when your social life slows down, as it is bound to in 4, 5, and 6 years, you can get those projects done.
If there is a key word to describe a 3 year it would be simply: enjoy.
