See the graphic below for an accurate presentation of when Personal Years are in place, and their cusp periods, based on the month of birth.
• Red shows the period when your current Personal Year cycle is in full force.
• Yellow reveals when the old cycle is still influencing you, but is on its way out.
• Blue/purple highlights the time when the next cycle starts to make its presence known.
• The list of months on the left reflects the months of birth.
• Each row to the right of a month of birth shows the strength and duration of a Personal Year cycle for someone born during that month.
Personal Month cycles
Personal Month cycles are calculated by adding the current month to your Personal Year cycle. And, just like Personal Year cycles, there is a cusp period on each end. This time, however, the cusp period is not controlled by your month of birth, but by your day of birth -- in a similar fashion but on a smaller scale, as the yearly cycles.
Personal Day cycles
Personal Day cycles also have cusp periods. Personal Day cycles are based on the time of your birth. In addition, daylight savings time and location/time zones often push these cycles forward or backward several hours. You can see why some people feel that the Personal Day cycles are more accurate if shifted one day forward or backward, whichever the case may be.
