Personal Year 7 in Numerology
In Numerology it is understood that the numbers that appear in our experience carry messages for us from the universal spiritual source.
These messages can be decoded by understanding the vibrational essence associated with each root number.
The root numbers each have their own energetic essence that can be experienced as a set of personality or character traits that tend to shine through the circumstances that accompany them.
In the case of the personal year, each root number acts like a snapshot or a map that can help you navigate the situations or circumstances that appear in the coming year.
Calculating Your Personal Year Number
Our experience is made up of both universal and personal elements. For this reason, the personal year is calculated using numbers that have both a universal and personal significance.
The foundation of your personal year number is the Universal Year Number.
This is based on the year that you are living in. To find the Universal Year Number you simply reduce the number of the present year. In 2017 it would be:
2 + 0 + 1 + 7 = 10
1 + 0 = 1
This Universal Year Number indicates that you are living in a time of new beginnings, in which leadership and originality are highlighted.
As a Universal Year Number these things have a general character to them and are not actually personal in nature.
To finish calculating your personal year number you would then add your life path or destiny number to the Universal Year Number.
Someone who was born on August 22, 1983 would find their life path number by reducing the numbers in their date of birth like this:
8 + 2 + 2 + 1 + 9 + 8 + 3 = 33
3 + 3 = 6
In 2017, someone who was born on August 22, 1983 would add their life path number 6 to the Universal Year Number 1, meaning that in 2017 they would have personal year number of 7.
What to Expect in a 7 year
Root number 7 is associated with spiritual life and spiritual pursuits.
In a 7 year, your spiritual side of life will be highlighted. If you are highly spiritual already, you will find yourself getting an opportunity to go on a spiritual retreat or become devoted to a daily spiritual practice that makes a great difference in your life.
Those who are not ordinarily spiritual may find the doors to spirituality opening up a bit. In recent years people have reported life changing spiritual experiences simply by reading such best selling self-help books as The Four Agreements, by Don Miguel Ruiz or Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, by Robert Prisig.
Another possibility is that you may find yourself drawn to one of the esoteric sciences like Numerology, Astrology or Divination.
The Deeper Meaning of a 7 Personal Year
The number 7 in the Tarot is associated with the Major Arcana card The Chariot. This is the card of victory. In a 7 year you will make fast strides toward the realization of your goals and attain victory over obstacles that may appear in your life.
The Chariot is also symbolic of swift and luxurious travel. This indicates that in a 7 year travel, usually in support of your new spiritual perspective, is favored. Taking a vacation in Mexico, for instance you may visit the Aztec pyramids and become fascinated with Toltec dreaming practices.
A trip to Asia may open an entire new world of eastern spirituality, or the highlight of your trip to Europe may be your visit to Chartres Cathedral.
Spiritual Serendipity and the 7 Year
It is surprising how many biographies of spiritual luminaries begin with a description of a trip to an exotic location.
Vietnamese Zen monk Thich Nhat Hanh had no idea when he left his monastery that his trip to the United States in 1966 would result in a life altering spiritual experience that would change his life and the lives of millions of Americans.
Thich Nhat Hanh was born October 11, 1926, which made his life path number a 3.
It was in 1966, a Universal Year Number 4 and a 7 personal year for the Zen monk, that Thich Nhat Hanh met Trappist monk Thomas Merton and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. This serendipitous journey to the United States to work in the Vietnam peace effort resulted in the Mindfulness movement coming to the United States.
Romance and Career in a 7 Year
A 7 year can be miraculous for your career because it is in 7 years that we often find the subjects and activities that give purpose and meaning to our lives. Just as the Chariot card suggests, there is victory in a 7 year, though that does not mean that it will come without struggle.
Romance in a 7 year, however, is likely to grow in unexpected ways. In a 7 year you will discover new dimensions of depth and meaning as the spiritual significance of companionship becomes a priority over mere sensual enjoyment.
Those who travel in a 7 year may find their real soul mate on their journey.
To sum up, 7 years can be years of real growth if you know what to look for. The universe will be sending you messages about the deeper meaning and purpose of your life.
If you look deeply into spiritual matters during a 7 year you are likely to find growth and meaning where you least expected it. This is why Numerologists say that in 7 years you should always expect the unexpected.
