2 Personal Year | A Year For Right-Timing & Relationships
In numerology, we believe we experience nine-year periods of time called Personal Year Cycles.
I call knowing your Personal Year number knowing the theme to your party. You don’t want to show up at the wrong party in the wrong outfit for an entire year! (seriously . . . !)
We all feel this shift in energy, don’t we? We get restless toward the end of the year, as the New Year’s Resolution frenzy get underway. Numerologically speaking, there’s a very real energetic transition that happens for each of us from year to year.
We feel this energy whether or not we understand numerology—or even believe in numerology. When you learn the theme to each Personal Year, you can align with the energy of the year rather than push against it. Know your theme and you’ll find that you have much more success throughout the year. Or at least you’ll be able to extract deeper meaning about why things are happening and how to make sense out of it.
Also note that the Personal Year Cycle runs from January 1 – December 31 (not from birthday to birthday), even though I find that the energy related to your Personal Year intensifies around your birthday. It also comes to a crescendo during the month of September.
Please be aware that some numerologists calculate the Personal Year to run from birthday to birthday.
It’s up to you to decide which school of thought you feel is correct. When I refer to the Personal Year, I’m referring to a start of January 1 and an ending on December 31.
Remember also, when you’re in a Personal Year that has the same number as your Life Path, you’ll feel double indemnity from the slings and arrows of the year—you’re going to feel all the positives doubly. This also means that you’re going to be doubly challenged with the obstacles inherent in the year’s theme.
When you experience a Personal Year that is the same as your Life Path number (or another of your core numbers), the year offers you many experiences and opportunities to bolster where you might have a weak link that needs strengthening within that particular theme. This simply might show up as more intensity or more dramatic occurrences or experiences that revolve around the key themes of your year.
Calculate the Personal Year
Take the date of birth: August 14, 1988
Use only the MONTH and DAY:
August is 8
Day is 14: 1 + 4 = 5
Then use the CURRENT YEAR (whatever it happens to be!)
2023 = 2 + 0 + 2 + 3 = 7
Now add the month, day, and current year together.
8 + 5 + 7 = 20 and then 2 + 0 = 2

A Year For Right-Timing & Relationships
This year is all about slowing down and developing patience.
Oh yes. Everyone’s favorite thing to do! (nervous laughter ensues…)
After your three-year period of intensity and transformation (the Personal Years 8-9-1) this is your hall pass to slow down, breathe, and focus on others. The last three years have been a self-focused period of time and full of weighty transitions and transformation.
This is a year earmarked for slower progress and is a time where you’re watching and waiting as you tend to the “seeds” you planted last year.
It’s a time of percolation and designed as a year where relationships take front seat. It’s an emotions-based year and great for networking, building intimacy on all levels, and a time where your sense of patience and diplomacy will be used, practiced, and tested. Think of the 2 Personal Year as a time of gestation.
Some of the challenges you may experience usually come in the form of frustration with what feels like a stand-still or a lack of over-all progress or forward momentum. Perhaps you’re a Type-A personality and the hovering required this year is a no-go. If you continue to think it’s business as usual and are unwilling to back off from pushing and advancing things via your own agenda, then this year can feel like a real kick in the pants. Just when you think things are in order and going your way, most likely it disintegrates right before your eyes as you frantically attempt to put it all back together the way you want it to be.
If emotions are a bit foreign or uncomfortable to you, then these twelve months can feel very confusing. Or alternately, if you’re an emotional person by nature, you can get carried away inside the cacophony of emotions and have trouble maintaining balance or equilibrium.
One of the tricks of the 2 Personal Year is to follow up with right action while also being acutely aware of when you need to back off or let something develop.
Yet—oh-joy of joys!—this can really be a great year for settling into yourself in an empowering and soulful way. When you work with others and involve yourself in activities that allow you to mix-and-mingle, then the beauty of the 2 Personal Year really shines.
It’s not time to blaze forward solo. The most success is had when you connect with others and put yourself out there into your social circles. This is the perfect time to question who you allow into your life and who depletes you. Harmony is a key term and practice sport during your 2 Personal Year. It’s a time to find harmony within yourself as you solidify who you are now and where you’re going. Listening to constructive criticism is helpful this year, yet the trick will be to have healthy discernment about the source—where are the suggestions coming from? How valid are they? What can you learn about yourself and others by taking a look at what comments end up in the suggestion box, so to speak.
Of course, there can be discord this year. The reason? What better way to walk a mile in the shoes of others than to have a lot of shoes thrown at you at the same time? This isn’t a time to be reactive. It’s a time to be responsive, yes. But with measured contemplation rather than knee-jerk reactions.
It’s a fabulous time for networking, finding the one, or reestablishing your connection with your intimate relationship.
However, don’t expect anything to transpire at a rapid pace. This is a year where you decide to marry or up-level your intimate relationship. Or perhaps it’s the time to allow a relationship that isn’t flourishing to fall away. If single, often you’ll find a soul-centered mate and enjoy the additional time spent focusing on really getting to know each other.
This is a testing year in regards to setting strong yet supple emotional boundaries with friends, colleagues, and family. You’ll be called upon to resign from being used as a doormat if that is something you find yourself succumbing to in your daily life. Or if you’re challenged with connecting emotionally with others and follow more of Michael Scott (Steve Carrell’s character) school of thought (from TV show The Office), then the lessons of the year will be more about gaining humility and developing a desire to actually open yourself to caring for and about other people.
Intuition can soar in a 2 Personal Year when you place perimeters around uncontrolled or undisciplined emotions.
Your sense of style, design, and artistry of all kinds is also heightened during your 2 Personal Year. This is an optimal year to open and soften your heart, trust in divine timing, and develop strong and authentic relationships. Intuition is super-charged and feelings are amplified. Patience is a key theme.
