Do you want to know what the year 2017 has in store for you? Numerology might be able to shine some light on what lies ahead for you during this year by analysing the energy of each personal year number.

It tells you what cycle you′re in when it comes to applying numerology to your life.

## How to Calculate Your Personal Year Number

To calculate your personal year: add the day and month of your birth together, a then add that to the year in question, and reduce it down again.

For example, if you were born on March 9th, you′d add 3 + 9 = 12, 1 + 2 = 3 so you reduce that number down to 3.

Add 2 + 0 + 1 + 7 to get 10, which reduces down to 1 + 0 = 1. The 1 in this example is the ‘universal year′ number. You′d add that to the 3 of your birth date calculation, 3 + 1 = 4. In this instance, your personal year number for 2017 would be 4.

Let′s get some more practice by looking at another example.

Let′s say you′re planning a wedding or another big occasion, and want to know the best year for it to happen. Your date of birth is November 18th. You are looking to see if 2019 is going to be a good year for the event.

Start by reducing your day of birth; 1 + 8 = 9. November reduces to 1 + 1 = 2. Add those together, 9 + 2 = 11. Add 1 + 1 = 2. Now let′s work with the universal year, 2019. 2 + 0 + 1 + 9 = 12, then 1 + 2 = 3.

Add the 2 from your date of birth calculations to the 3 of the universal year results, and this reveals that your Personal Year Number for 2019 is a 3.
