Know thy numbers. Know thy Self.
Q: Did you know that September is the capstone month in numerology?
A: September is always the month when Your Numerology Personal Year & Your Numerology Personal Month coincide.
A: September is the 9th month of the year, and “9” yields compounding energies mathematically + magically
Q: What is a personal year in numerology and what does it mean to me?
A: A Personal Year in Numerology shows you the energies and themes of your evolutionary lessons for the year and how to navigate the highs and lows with strategy and results. The energy is triggered during the calendar year on January 1st.
2 schools of thought. Both apply
A Personal Year can be calculated from birthday to birthday OR on the calendar year January 1st.
Personally, I repeatedly see evidence of overlap in the energies and lessons. Both can be used to maximize your strategy, attain greater insight, clarity and results.
In this blog, I will focus on the Personal Year and months calculated on the calendar year.
Q: How do I calculate my Personal Year in Numerology
A: The Personal Year is derived by adding the month and the day you were born to the current year (2020 = 4 Universal Year).
Step 1: Numerical month you were born + Numerical day you were born = Sum of Your birth date
Step 2: Sum of your birth date + 2020 Universal Year = Sum of Your Personal Year
Step 3: Reduce the Sum of Your Personal Year by adding the numbers together to equal a single digit
The final sum equals Your Personal Year.
Birthday = September 3rd The year is 2020
9 (month you were born) + 3 (day you were born) = 12 (the sum of your birthday)
12 (sum of your birth date) + 4 (2020 Universal Year) = 16
1 +6 = 7
Personal Year = 7
The Personal Year lessons are learned through the energy of the 7.
*Once I show you the calculations for your Personal Month, I’ll review the energies and strategies of each number.
Q: What is a personal month in numerology and what does it mean to me?
A: A Personal Month in Numerology shows you the energies and themes of your evolutionary lessons for the month and where to focus your energy, what blind spots to expose and how to connect the dots with your Personal Year energy and lessons.
Q: How do I calculate my Personal Month in Numerology?
A: The Personal Month is derived by adding Your Personal Year to the Current Calendar Month’s Number (January = 1, February = 2, and so on)
Step 1: Your Personal Year + Current Calendar Month’s Number = Sum of Your Personal Month
Step 2: Reduce the Sum of Your Personal Year by adding the numbers together to equal a single digit
The final sum equals Your Personal Month.
Let’s use the 2020 Personal Year 7 again from the example above.
7 (Personal Year) + 9 (We currently in September, which is the 9th Month) = 16 (sum of your personal year)
1 +6 = 7
Personal Month = 7
See the mathematical magic? The 9th month, September ALWAYS matches the Personal Year with the Personal Month.
Q: How do I use my Personal Numerology practically and strategically?

Numerology is one tool in your personal and metaphysical toolkit that can help you strategize, navigate the highs and lows, and understand yourself (and your blind spots) more wholly.
In my experience over the years through using personal numerology with myself and clients there has been clarity and breakthroughs around karmic lessons, increased “aha moments” and divine connections, healing happens, and greater meaning and fulfillment is experienced in specific areas throughout the year.
When you are aware and understand how to use the numerology effectively, it can truly create profound shifts in your day to day, month to month and year!
