Ask Greer: When does the personal year begin? I’ve always calculated my personal years from birthday to birthday mostly because my birthday is toward the end of the regular year. I am curious how you interpret it. My birthday is 10/8/56. —Gina
Greer: Hi Gina, this is a very common question! People ask me all the time – “when does my personal year begin according to numerology?”
Some numerologists go birthday to birthday, but I calculate the personal year beginning when the year changes. It sort of makes sense, because to find your personal year (or theme and lesson of the year), you add the month and day of your birthday to the year. So when the year changes, your personal year theme changes.
Gina, to find out your personal year you add your month and day to the current year.
So in 2016, add like this:
1+0+8+2+0+1+6 = 18/9.
The 9 personal year is the theme of transformation and completion. Around your birthday time (October 8) it has the most powerful emphasis, so it would be a powerful time to meditate on what you want in your life, especially looking at your personal year theme. I tell people to start their intentions at the beginning of every year to make the most out of their lessons. Read more about intentions in 2016 here.
The 18/9 personal year
The nine personal year can feel like a whirlwind because this is the time that you get to really look at your life, perhaps the things that you have just been putting up with are in your face.. The 18/9 personal year is even more auspicious. 18 in Hebrew is all about life and a powerful vibration of change and completion. Read more about 18-9. How is your year going for you?
The 9 inspiration number in numerology
One more thing about your particular birthday. 1+0+8 = 9. So you are in the year of your inspiration number, which is also a nine. (Read more about your inspiration number here. http://numerology4yoursoul.
