The Pinnacles are four distinct periods of time that each of us experience—with the longest cycles being at the beginning and at the end of our lives, with two nine-year cycles in the middle. Each Pinnacle is a time of personal development.
The Pinnacles can be seen as the degree programs you signed up for during your life—and you get to study that particular subject matter for an extended period of time. Consider them to be like a master plan compartmentalized into stages of development. They are the building blocks of your life—and you take the experiences and skills learned throughout each cycle and bridge them to inform the next.
Each Pinnacle number represents the energy and lessons that are emphasized during a period of several years. Understanding the elements presented to you during your Pinnacle Cycles offers invaluable information about the focus and lessons to be learned during certain chunks of time, and also provides a great format for understanding why certain things happen during these periods of time. This is the environment in which you find yourself, offering you a particular trajectory through life.
In numerology, Pinnacles are sometimes called The Four Pyramids. Calculating your four Pinnacle Cycle numbers is not so much a predictive tool—although it can be used to map out a clearer vision of your past, present, and future—as a tool that offers support and guidance for your life decisions and actions.
I’m making the assumption that you know how to calculate the Pinnacles, or you wouldn’t be searching for information about the 4 Pinnacle!

A 4 Pinnacle is a period where you’re being called to build your life with solid, stable foundations that’ll last. This is a time to focus on your root system and how to create security and stability. This is a Pinnacle where you’re drawn toward creating security. This might show up as purchasing—or actually building—a home, concentrating your efforts on career advancement or starting and maintaining a family. This isn’t a particularly light-hearted time because you’re being tested by issues related to hard work, organization, setting up effective systems, patience, endurance, working step-by-step, and moving ahead methodically.
This stage is set-up for designing and pouring the proper foundation for your present and your future. It’s a practical time where you’re putting ideas into the material world and manifesting your vision with discipline and a serious attitude. Limiting circumstances are sure to be an integral part of your journey through a 4 Pinnacle. Frankly, it’s not a time to mess around. You’re being immersed in the energies that support a practical and realistic approach to life, therefore a demand for order, systems- building, and organization is key.
The 4 Pinnacle encourages you to be dependable, conscientious, realistic, and reliable. Determination and relentless effort are requirements and you may feel a strong compulsion and emotional need to immerse yourself in work and career during this Pinnacle. When you do, you’ll thrive on that energy and feel satisfied with the tangible and lasting results you create.
1st Pinnacle: A 4 as a 1st Pinnacle sets you up for a demanding childhood and adolescence. You might find your economic circumstances demand more concerted effort and hard work on your part, pushing you into responsibilities that come to you too soon. During this Pinnacle, you crave stability, support, and security, yet often this doesn’t exist in your world. This can also be a stage of life devoted to the pursuit of your education, where you take learning seriously, and your responsibilities are the center-point of life. In either event, it’s unlikely you’ll be involved in the normal frivolity of life because of the demands you face. Family dynamics—often, but not always, dysfunctional—command the energy of this 1st Pinnacle.
2nd or 3rd Pinnacle (Main Pinnacle): A 2nd or 3rd Pinnacle with a 4 emphasis fuels your ability to get ahead in the world and achieve—not so much because of innate talent as much as your drive and ability to out-work the competition. You might find some economic limitations during this Pinnacle placed in your path in order to test your commitment to building solid and steady foundations for your life—while not being beaten down by obstacles and limitations. Seeking security, working hard, and accomplishment are hallmarks of this Pinnacle. Family issues are to be worked through and healed as you devise your family of choice and establish your own stability.
4th Pinnacle: A 4th Pinnacle imbued with the 4 won’t allow you to slow down or retire in the way you might desire or expect. The number 4 isn’t a leisurely energy, so it doesn’t even recognize the notion of retire or slow down. Moreover, you won’t want to! A driving sense of purpose compels you during a 4 Pinnacle. The important factor is to do the work in front of you and to feel good about the sense of accomplishment. There’s a possibility that economic conditions will control your ability to slow down or retire. Or alternately, you’re building an empire and continue to put your heart, soul, and energy into this expansive enterprise. The 4 Pinnacle serves as a foundation to build something vital that has lasting value in the world. The 4 Pinnacle teaches you that effort is what counts. The upside: If you take this energy seriously and do the work, you’ll reap the benefits for the rest of your life. As you’re building your empire, you’re setting up your positive relationship with money, your ability to meet deadlines, your ability to institute effective systems, and your positive way of dealing with limitations.
