The Surprising Thing Your Age Reveals About You


Well, at least it’s my birthday this month. I’m celebrating in a fabulous way – by going on a retreat in Mexico. Yes. Even I’m jealous of me since I’ve never been on a retreat to Mexico. Ya-Hoo!

And so, Numerologically speaking, what does our AGE reveal about us?

This is fun. It’s nothing I’ve ever really studied in Numerology, and yet as I’ve experimented with it, I love it and want to share it with you.

We can see what our age brings to us in terms of the energy of the year. So let’s take some “turning point” ages, or at least we consider them to be important birthdays in our Western culture.

The way to look at it is this: Each number will carry with it a “theme” for what you’ll be asked to learn about and master during the year. And you’ll be given all kinds of different opportunities from a variety of angles to experience and master your particular theme.

So check these out:

5 Years Old: Entering Kindergarten! In Numerology, the “5” is the number of freedom. It’s supportive of pursing freedom, adventure, change, fun. It’s a frenetic number and is full of life. Does anyone remember their own Kindergarten year? Or the Kindergarten year of your children? It can be a year of fearless adventure, or a year of fear. Or both; back and forth and back and forth. Which was it for you?

16 Years Old (1 + 6 = 7; also this is a Karmic Number 16/7): Driver’s License! In Numerology, this is a “7” year and it’s the number of spiritual seeking, of digging for the Truth, of testing your sense of trust and openness, of using your gifts of analysis to expand upon your sense of your authentic self and how it connects to the world as a whole. What better energy to surround you as you get your “wheels” and gain a sense of personal responsibility and a grander sense of yourself as you connect with the world at large. Interestingly, the 16/7 is also a Karmic number in Numerology. I haven’t touched on Karmic numbers in my newsletters. Yet the bare-bones of what that brings to the party when you’re 16 years old is this: With this number, you’ll be taunted by issues surrounding self-awareness, pride, secrets, lies, and lack of accountability. DUH! Can you say “Welcome to the 16-year-olds World?” Yet the energy of that Karmic number demands that you conquer these issues, master the demons, and prove to yourself and the world that you can operate on a higher plane.

21 Years Old (2 + 1 = 3):
Alcohol! In Numerology, this is a “3” year and it’s the number of joyful self expression and emotional sensitivity. This energy is all about fun, frolic, socializing, getting out there, and enjoying life. It’s a year that supports really digging deep into your emotions and healthy expression of them. It’s also a number that supports communication of all kinds, including performance. Of course, you must learn to temper the extremes. Dancing on a table with a lampshade on, anyone?

40 Years Old (4 + 0 = 4): OMG. In Numerology, this is a “4” year (with double intensity, given it’s followed by the “0” which intensifies whatever it accompanies). This is a “Holy-Cow-Really-Who-Am-I and Where-Am-I-Going” year. The energy of this year is more serious and is about hard-work and setting up foundations. It’s about facing old emotional/family stuff that may be holding you back. It’s a demanding year that will set the stage for what you’ll manifest in your 40s.

50 Years Old ( 5 + 0 = 5):
The Big 5-OH. This is traditionally the age of the “Midlife Crisis!” Isn’t it? Notice, though, how this is the same “5” (FREEDOM) energy that you experienced in Kindergarten! Except this 5 is accompanied by that zero, making it a double-whammy. So Numerologically speaking, this is a year that requires that you again redefine your sense of yourself in terms of freedom and self-discipline. And the added “0” makes that energy super-intense. So no wonder many people do “crazy” things in their 50th year – like getting a divorce, finally telling your Mother that you aren’t going to call her three times a day anymore, moving to Tuscany, or getting a tattoo.

I could go on, yet you get the general idea.

What I focus on over and over again about knowing your numbers is this: When you can have some clarity about certain key words or themes that are at play in your life, your chances of aligning more successfully with the positive aspects of those themes raises substantially.

And it makes things a lot more fun.

It won’t make whatever you’re going through any easier, really. Yet it certainly does provide a difference lens from which to view, experience, and process things along the way.

Take a look at your own age right now. If you’re curious about what number year you’re in right now and what it brings to you, shoot me an email. I’ll either answer your queries individually or if there are several, I’ll send the answers out in group form so everyone can benefit from it. Send me your birth date and current age.

Meanwhile, IT’S MY BIRTHDAY and I’m on the go! Enjoy the end of July everyone!
