The Way Of Life And The Personal Years

Understanding the world around us, its manifestations, its subtleties and its fulgacity has always been part of human life's objectives. For thousands of years, numerology has been mobilized to guide us and help us understand the meaning of things on the earthly plane but also spiritual. Each letter of your name and each number of your date of birth is a precious clue that will help you to become fully aware of your life objective and to direct your existence towards the path most likely to give you the satisfaction of the work accomplished.

Numerology is mainly carried by two capital data: the path of life and the personal year. The life path calculation involves your date of birth (day, month and year of birth). It is therefore an immutable, fixed and absolute constant. It will inform you about your life purpose, your aptitudes, your character tendencies, etc. The personal year is calculated from your date of birth (day and month, without the year) and the current year. So it's a variable that changes every year. It gives you information about your place in the 9-year cycle and therefore helps you identify your life path for the current year. Since the democratization of the web, the use of free numerology services has exploded, gradually becoming part of a more global approach to personal development.

Personal years and their calculation

Just as the movement of the planets affects our existence, the numbers act by more or less strong vibrations and arouse in us actions, feelings and thoughts, whether we are aware of them or not. When important numbers change in our lives (a new address, a new uniform, a new phone number), our energy is affected with more or less visible repercussions. The change from one year to the next is one of those regular number changes that cause a vibratory change. We all share the influence of this transformation. This is called the "personal year".

Knowing your progress over the years will help you interpret the many changes that are occurring in the turbulent environment as well as in your home. Consulting your personal year is like reading the weather report before planning a trip. There is a time to act, a time to delay. One time to express yourself, then another to explore. There is also a time to withdraw. Unlike the personal path that we will discuss in the next section, the personal year is a variable: its value varies each year. Its calculation is based on three data:

  • Your day of birth;
  • Your month of birth;
  • The current year.

Your year of birth is therefore of no importance in calculating your personal year. This major indicator of contemporary numerology is therefore turned towards the present and the short term, unlike the path of life which draws a more general sketch of your existence. To calculate your personal year, follow these instructions:

Reduce the current year into a single number by adding thousands to hundreds, tens and units. You will arrive at a two-digit number that you will also have to reduce to a single digit. For the year 2017: 2 + 0 + 1 + 7 = 10. Then : 1 + 0 = 1 ;

Reduce your day of birth to one number if necessary (if you were born on the 15th, the total will be 5 + 1 = 6);

Reduce your birth month to one number if necessary (if you were born in December, the total will be : 1 + 2 = 3).

N.B: contrary to the calculation of the path of life, that of the personal year does not impose a particular attention on the so-called "master" numbers. The calculation is summarized in a simple series of simple additions.

Mathematical logic is implacable: you will arrive at a number between 1 and 9. Each corresponds to the personal year of the same figure in a cycle of 9 consecutive years. Each personal year imposes a particular context, brings its share of opportunities to seize and threats against which it will be a question of protecting oneself. To put all the chances on your side, you must be aware of the meaning of each personal year and its place in the cycle. It's the best way to achieve your goals and make sure you're not going against the flow. Contrary to what one can read on certain sites of clairvoyance or numerology, the personal years are with the strict number of 9. At this stage, we are not talking about two-digit numbers (master numbers) as we do for life paths.

The paths of life: our path of destiny

The number "The "path of life" holds a preponderant place in numerological calculations. The path of life is a fundamental, unchanging, fixed and definitive fact. As for the personal year, the path of life is calculated from the day and month of birth, to which is added not the current year but the year of birth of the person. The path of life therefore depends exclusively on the person's date of birth. Numerologists consider that the path of life corresponds to our path of destiny. It highlights the potentialities and opportunities of the life of its holder. The calculation of the depends on the numerological system chosen:

  • The Pythagorean system, in reference to Pythagoras, assigns a number to each of the letters of the western alphabet, from 1 to 9. The Pythagorean is widely regarded as the default system of contemporary numerology. For Pythagoras, everything is explained (or explainable) by numbers. The eponymous system was developed by combining Hebrew mystical knowledge, Indian Guru literature and Western mathematics;
  • The Kabbalah system is comparable to the first but is based on a 22-digit numerological table;
  • The Chaldean system, considered the most accurate, is based on the person's date of birth and name.

Contemporary numerology is based on the Hebrew numeral alphabet of Kabbalistic gematria. The calculation of the life path according to the Pythagorean system is simple. It is enough, as for the personal year, to proceed to successive additions with however some instructions to be respected :

  • First, add separately each digit of each of the elements that make up your date of birth (day, month and date of birth);
  • Attention: if one of the three subtotals formed results in a Master Number (the 11, 22 or 33, do not reduce it. Thus, the 11 does not become a "2", the 22 does not become a "4" and the 33 does not become a "6";
  • Finally, add the three subtotals (day, month and year of birth) and add the two digits of the result to arrive at your life path (unless you come across an 11, 22 or 33 that are master numbers corresponding to your own life paths).

The most common error is to add the three elements (day, month and year of birth) at once. This may give you a biased path to life. By combining the lessons of your life path with the information you have learned from your personal year, you will then have all the cards in hand to achieve your life goal.
