“My birthday is August 17 and I am seeing my birthday numbers 817 everywhere. I am also at a pivotal point in my life, thinking of moving from my job to another state to better support my family. And now I keep seeing my birthday all the time. What does it mean?” — Alex
Greer: Seeing your birthday numbers continually may be the universe’s way of saying “pay attention”, especially during a big life change for you and your family, Alex. When you see the same number, it is kind of an “aha” moment. Like when I see 3:33 and I am talking on the phone about something very meaningful in my life. I know I need to remember this moment and what I was talking about. Seeing your birthday continually is a stronger message from the universe because it is about what will help you thrive at this moment in time.
Adding the month + day of birth in numerology is the energy of inspiration
When you add your birthday number together (Month + Day of birth) it is called your catalyst number. This vibration can be the key to understanding what inspires you on your life’s journey.
Not to confuse you, but just so you know, this birthday number has various names in numerology: Inspiration number; Catalyst number; Achievement number; or Sun number
Ok, now lets take a look at your birthday numbers, 817 (August 17).
8 (Abundance, success, power) +1 (independence, leadership, new beginnings) + 7 (spirituality, going within to find your answers) = 16/7 . So your catalyst or inspiration in life, in order to meet your ultimate life purpose, is to combine your vibrant power and strong leadership skills with your inner knowing. Trust your decisions and your gut feelings. What helps you thrive in your life as a thoughtful (7) abundant leader (8 &1) is the seven – to get quiet, meditate, go for long walks, write, do yoga, have some silent time. Quiet the mind. Trust your inner knowing.
Here is a quick synopsis of the meaning of each number from a numerology view.
Find your Destiny or Life’s Purpose
To explore your catalyst number further, it would be good to find your destiny or life purpose number. This is the month + day + year of birth. The sum of this will tell you more about why you are here in this life time. Then you can look at your catalyst number to see what helps you thrive to achieve your destiny. So if you had a destiny of 3, which is all about creativity and self-expression, what helps inspire you (with a 7 catalyst) is to go take a walk in nature and breathe in it’s beauty.

What is the Personal Year in Numerology?
Now let’s take your birthday numbers even further to find your personal year in 2015. To find your personal year, add your month and day of birth to the current year.
8+1+7 + 2+0+1+5 =24. (2+4=6)
Alex, you are in a 6 personal year. Six is the theme of the year for you. Ah, makes total sense. The six year is the theme of family, of love, of community and healing. This year considers all matters of the heart. It is also the time of birth and rebirth. It makes sense that at this time you are planning a move in order to provide for your family. Seeing your day of birth is just confirming that. Perhaps what is left out is self-love? It would be really helpful if you took a deep breath and send love to yourself. You are doing the best you can.
Trust that when you are on the path and following what feels true for you, the universe will not let you down. Seeing 817 is saying just that.
