2017 is a 1 Universal Year that promises major changes, increased energy across the board on a worldwide scale, and new directions for many of us, as countries reach out to each other or turn their backs on age-old alliances. This will be a year of technical breakthroughs and vast economic and political shifts. However, while those changes make all the noise and get all the attention, the most significant transformation will be an unprecedented rise in global awareness concerning idealistic and spiritual matters.
In numerology, numbers (and words/names) provide insight that is invaluable, especially when looking at the year ahead. Each year has its own numeric value and personality, and in numerology the years run in a 9-year cycle. In addition to the numeric value of the current year, you have your own individual cycle/personal year number based on the day and month you were born, plus the current year’s value.
Calculating Your Personal Year
Personal years are determined by adding up the month you were born, the day of the month you were born and the current year. The month, day and year should be reduced to the lowest single digit before all three individual numbers are added. If the number you come up is a double-digit number, add it up until it becomes a single digit.
If you were born on March 12, your personal year number would be as follows:
The month (March) = 3
The day (12), 1+2= 3
The current year (2017) 2+0+1+7 = 10, and 1+0 = 1
Now you add the single-digit results as follows: (month) 3 + (day) 3 + (current year) 1 = 7
2017 is a personal 7 year.
Using the calculations as instructed above, find your personal year number and look below to see what 2017 has in store for you.
1 Personal Year
Fresh starts, new beginnings and transformation. If you’re determined to reach a goal, you are very likely to achieve it due to a laser focus. Changes made this year will set the course for the coming 9-year cycle. It is possible that your focus on a goal will cause you to ignore anyone who can’t/won’t get on board, while developing a deeper relationship with those who agree with your vision.
2 Personal Year
This year will require your tenacity and focus at seeing things through to completion. It can be a challenging year at times, but as long as you keep your cool and don’t avoid things that crop up, it promises to be a productive year. Just don’t push yourself too hard, and be sure to let things unfold naturally.
3 Personal Year
You feel an extra surge of energy which you should use in a creative way to produce art, music and things that feed the soul. Following your intuition is imperative and will lead you to having a wonderful year overall. Using your imagination will lead to practical solutions.
4 Personal Year
Your 2017 numerology suggests that taking on new responsibilities will require both a sincere desire and a willingness to learn. Planning will also take up your initial energy but will pay off in the long run. Maintaining a healthy balance between physical and mental pursuits is your key to success.
5 Personal Year
Keep an open mind, learn to go with the flow and don’t fight against change. You choose your path, but there will always be unexpected elements and how you deal with them will determine the type of year you have. Flexibility will bring mostly ease and success. Conversely, resistance will bring you headaches.
6 Personal Year
The word that best sums up the changes that come in a 6 personal year is “social.” Social or not, this year will bring home the lesson that no man is an island, and you need interactions with others just as much as they need you. This year you’ll let in more family, community and even love interests.
7 Personal Year
Spirituality and self-awareness are important keywords in a 7 personal year. More light-hearted than the past few years and the ones ahead, this is a time when you can once again concentrate on your personal story and pursuits while the Universe takes the lead. Do things that bring you joy and avoid drama-filled situations.
8 Personal Year
This is a year of recognition and personal reward, but it’s not a year to rest on your laurels. Do things you enjoy, but also learn new skills. Be bold and take chances, because it’s important that you rise to the top no matter your path, yet maintain your originality. Hard work leads to great pleasure.
9 Personal Year
This is a year of completion. It’s time to discard what isn’t working in your life to make room for new and exciting opportunities next year. Remain strong; it’s not always an easy year. If life’s been good up to now, remember to look back and thank those who helped you and be grateful for the person you’ve become as you reach the end of this 9-year cycle. Are you ready to do it all over again?
