Numbers don’t lie.
Are you nervous about the New Year?
2016 was such a year of turmoil that many of us feel like we’re on full alert for 2017. Is this year going to be better? Or worse? How many of my childhood idols are going to die this year?
While it’s normal to enter a new calendar year with some trepidation, fortunately, there are ways that we can glean insight into our year to come and start preparing ourselves for everything 2017 has to offer.
One of those methods is Numerology. In our latest Expert video, famed Numerologist Glynis McCants (a.k.a The Numbers Lady) offers a step-by-step guide for how you can figure out what kind of year you’re destined to have in 2017.
Glynis walks you through the process in the above video, but everything starts by taking a look at the World Year Number for 2017.
Here’s how you find it (by breaking down the digits of the year):
2017 = 2 + 0 + 1 + 7
2 + 0 + 1 + 7 = 10
10 = 1 + 0 = 1
So, 2017 has a World Year Number of 1.
1 is a powerful year number — it marks a period of new beginnings. It’s a year of energy, a year where you’re going to feel a little more motivated, a little more alive than you have been. It’s a great way to kick off a year.
However, within the year, we’re all also dealing with our own Personal Year Cycles.
You determine that by adding together the month and day of your birth and you reduce them down to one digit. For example, if you were born on June 4th, you’d do this:
June 4th = 6 + 4 = 10
10 = 1 + 0 = 1
You then add your month/day number to the World Year Number. So if you were born on June 4th, your Personal Year Cycle Number would be 2 (1 + 1).
Through Numerology, Glynis has broken down a total of NINE Personal Year Cycles for every year and, by finding out what cycle you are in 2017, you can use the information about that cycle to your advantage.
Glynis has put together a series of definitions for what each Personal Year Cycle can expect to encounter in 2017.
You can hear her full definitions with her complete commentary in the video at the top of the page, but these quick hits will give you a sense of what kind of year you’ve got ahead of you.
Personal Year Cycle Of 1: Taking Control Of Your Life
Quick Hit: If you have a 1 Cycle in a World Year of 1 — look out! This is a high energy year (and a great year for figuring out what matters most to you)!
Personal Year Cycle Of 2: Strong Intuition
Personal Year Cycle Of 3: Communication Is Key
Quick Hit: This will be a year when you’re going to soak everything up. You need to embrace your inner child, speak honestly, and expect to be heard when you tell people what you want.
Personal Year Cycle Of 4: Seeking Knowledge
Quick Hit: Learning will make you feel alive this year. Read more, take a class — you’ll love it. But be careful of being too blunt in your pursuit of the truth.
Personal Year Cycle Of 5: Having Freedom
Quick Hit: A year for adventure. Treat yourself, have some fun, celebrate! That being said, it might not be the best year to settle down in a relationship.
Personal Year Cycle Of 6: You're The Authority
Personal Year Cycle Of 7: Time For Introspection
Quick Hit: Step back and observe this year. Work on your spiritual side. 2017 will be a great time for you to ask yourself the BIG questions and maybe find some answers.
Personal Year Cycle Of 8: Working On Financial Prosperity
Quick Hit: This will be a good year to look at the financial side of your life. Maybe invest, learn new things. But while your financial acumen will grow, you’re going to want to keep an eye on your health in 2017.
Personal Year Cycle Of 9: Releasing The Past
Quick Hit: Look for closure this year. Take a look at what really matters in your life and leave unsatisfying relationships and opportunities behind you. But the struggle in a year all about the past will be finding ways to make sure you’re staying in the moment.
Those short summaries should give you a basic idea of what the Personal Year Cycles will look like in 2017. If you want to know more, watch Glynis’ full video above (for a lot more detail) or visit her website NumbersLady.com.
