New year, new energy! In Numerology, your Personal Year Number will define the quality of the next 12 months. Learn the characteristics of your 2020 Personal Year Number to align with the purpose encoded in this annual opportunity.
To understand your 2020 Personal Year Number, it’s helpful to understand how numerologists view a year: by the Universal Year number and your Personal Year Number.
The Universal Year is the over-arching energy that everyone in the world experiences during a calendar year. It’s calculated by adding all the numbers of that year, then reducing them to a single digit. In 2020, we’ll experience a “4” year because 2+0+2+0 = 4, which is a Master Number in numerology, therefore numerologists consider this a 4 Universal Year. The Universal Year, like astrology, has planetary trends that affect everyone regardless of zodiac sign.
Your Personal Year Number is your individual theme for the year. Its energy is felt stronger than that of the Universal Year. It’s like a horoscope for your sign but by your number.
How to Calculate Your Personal Year Number
Use the following example to calculate and find your Personal Year Number:
Birthdate: October 12
Step 1: Take the MONTH: October, which is the 10th month (in numerology we reduce to a single digit, so in this case: 1 + 0 = 1
Step 2: DAY = 12 –> 1 + 2 = 3
Step 3: CURRENT YEAR (2020) = 2 + 0 + 2 + 0 = 4
Step 4: ADD the MONTH + DAY + CURRENT YEAR | 1 + 3 + 4 = 8
In this example, you would experience an 8 Personal Year.
Note: If your birthday first adds up to 11, 22 or 33, you have a Master Number as your Life Path. You can read the general characteristics of your Life Path number here.
