2017: Your New Personal Year Number

Happy 2017! Though every day of our lives is really a fresh start and an opportunity for change, there's just something about the tangible transition from one year to the next that feels so much more definite, more inspiring. Especially when we're entring a 1 Universal Year, the number of beginnings.

In Numerology, two numbers that are right next to each other (1 and 2, 2 and 3, 3 and 4, etc.) tend to be quite opposite. When we move from one year to the next, the number that rules the year increases by one each year. As we make the switch from 2016 to 2017, we transition from a 9 Universal Year -- one of big-picture thinking, healing, and endings -- into a 1 Year that's all about beginnings, initiation, and action.

As Hans Decoz describes in his 2017 Numerology Predictions, 2017 is a year to power forward. Yet while the 1 is an pioneering number, 2017 still holds its share of ups and downs. That being said, what you will experience this year is more directly influenced by your new Personal Year number.

To figure out your Personal Year for 2017, take your Sun Number (your birth month and date added, then reduced to a single digit), then add 1 (for the year 2017), and reduce the sum to a final single digit. For instance, if your Sun Number is 5, add 1 to that and you are in an 6 Personal Year. Or, if your Sun Number is 9, add 1 to that and you get 10, then reduce that further to a single digit and you are in a 1 Personal Year (because 10 = 1 + 0 = 1). Once you've figured out your new Personal Year number for 2017, here's the mood that may be coming your way!

Personal Year 1: A year of new beginnings, seed-planting and high energy
Personal Year 2: A year of relationships, sensitivity and cooperation
Personal Year 3: A year of creativity, motivation and inspiration
Personal Year 4: A year of hard work, discipline and opportunities
Personal Year 5: A year of change, freedom and unpredictability
Personal Year 6: A year of responsibility, domestic affairs and service
Personal Year 7: A year of contemplation, self-awareness and spiritual atonement
Personal Year 8: A year of reward, respect and recognition
Personal Year 9: A year of completion, release and transformation
