# Numerology - What Does Your Number Predict for the New Year?

Numerology is an ancient study of the vibrational and spiritual significance of numbers and how they affect your life. In a mathematical universe where the planets stay in orbit due to precise laws of physics, plants follow the rhythm of nature and our bodies function with mathematical precision, using numbers to take a peek into the future or to understand your character, purpose in life, what motivates you, and the talents you have yet to express can be useful and fun!

I find it practical to know for example, if I were considering a career move, a number 2 year would not be a good one, due to its slow vibration, but the following year, which will be a 3, (the number of growth), would be more supportive of my changes, well at least mathematically! As mentioned, numerology provides input on different areas in your life, but for this article, I will focus on the personal year.

To calculate your personal year, add your birthday plus your birth month and the current calendar year, and reduce the total to a single digit.

Follow the example to determine your Personal Year; let's take Eric Clapton's date of birth 3-30-1945. For the personal year we leave out the year of birth in the calculations.

Birth Month: 3

Birth Date: 30

Current Year: 2009

Total: 3 + 3 + 0 + 2 + 0 + 0 + 9 = 17

Reduce the total (16) to a single digit: 1+7= 8

Eric Clapton is therefore in a number 8 personal year. An ambitious year, where he can make further career advancements or meet goals.

After you figure out your personal year, the following gives you an idea what the numbers have in store for you:

PERSONAL YEAR 1

This is a year of new beginnings. New opportunities will either knock at your door or you will create them by taking the initiative in taking action to fulfill your goals. Be careful what you ask for and start this year, for this will set the course of your life for the next 9 years! You may start a new love relationship or revitilize an existing one, through better communication.

To make this year work, be determined in all your plans even during apparent setbacks as life is still cleaning out the old from your life from last year. Be a doer, have an optimistic attitude, initiate new projects or you will waste a wonderful opportunity in establishing a new beginning in all areas of your life.

LUCKY COLORS: Orange, Cooper, Lilac, Dark Red

PERSONAL YEAR 2

The vibration for this year is slower, giving you the much needed time to rest and reflect. This year you may find yourself more sensitive and "touchy" with personal relationships due to the moon influence throughout the year. Do not push for events to move faster. This slower period is a good time to let all the plans of last year to develop fully.

To make this year work for you, use your increased sensitivity and psychic awareness to grow in understanding with those close to you. Reflect and meditate.

LUCKY COLORS: Gold, Yellow, Salmon

PERSONAL YEAR 3

This is a wonderful year to enjoy the fruition of the ideas that you "planted" two years ago. During this cycle you will find yourself very magnetic and will attract new friends, while enjoying wonderful times with your old friends.

The faster vibration of this year will fill you with ideas, inspiration, creativity and the opportunity to see many of your wishes come true. Financial affairs should improve. Do not be surprised if you win varying amounts of money in games of chance. Stay away from gossip as your light-hearted attitude may at times lead you to put your "foot in your mouth."

To make this a successful year do not scatter your energies. Finish what you start. Do not drift along or you will waste a wonderful year!

LUCKY COLORS: Rose, Light Pink, Ruby, Amber, Russet

PERSONAL YEAR 4

This is a practical year where you will have to see things through. During this cycle you will feel the need to get organized, start a budget, build homes, and set goals in order to set solid foundations for your future. You will also need to work on your relationships in order to experience more harmony in your life. The vibration of this year will make you more cautious and doubtful. This hard working year will offer you many opportunities to put into concrete form the plans that you started last year.

Even if you find yourself overloaded with responsibilities you will not be able to escape it, as this year the theme is "work". Do not feel resentful, attend to all details in your life with a loving attitude and you will feel less pressure. You will have more time to relax next year.

This year will keep you busy, but you will feel a sense of achievement at having completed many projects that will lead you to a brighter future.

LUCKY COLORS: Blue, Green

PERSONAL YEAR 5

The theme of this year is changes. You will find yourself the recipient of many surprises that will enable you to break free from unwanted burdens. Travel, exercise, extra curricular activities are very much in your favor. Mentally and physically you will be very alert. Your sex appeal will be at its peak.

To make this a successful year learn to get out of your daily routine. Have the mind of an adventurer and explore new places, ideas and you will meet interesting people that will brighten your life.

During the last two months of the year, be at your most positive, look within to see patterns that are blocking you in other to release negative energy so it cannot unbalance your life. Avoid over indulging in food and drink.

LUCKY COLORS: Pink, Cherry, Burgundy

PERSONAL YEAR 6

A six personal year will bring you more responsibility and obligations especially towards your loved ones. This year will be an opportunity to express your compassion, unselfishness, charity and love for others. It is important that you maintain perfect harmony during this year. Learn not to be affected by negative emotions, or actions of others and maintain a balance in all your do.

This year is a good year for romance and marriage, but there will be lessons in learning how to give and to receive. The end of this year should give you the happy conclusion to settling down in both domestic and business matters.

LUCKY COLORS: Orange, Crimson

PERSONAL YEAR 7

In a seven year you are in a time of reevaluation. This is a mental year and you will be left alone for certain periods so you will have the time to meditate, pray and think of where you are heading in your life. This year is good for studies, and spiritual development. Ask yourself what you have outgrown in your life.

Since the vibration of this year is slower, do not overwork as it will unbalance you.

This is a good time to listen to your highly attuned intuition and if you do this, you will find pleasant surprises in store for you.

Concentrate in doing things well, reset many of your plans, remain calm, spend time alone and you will have use the number 7 vibration wisely.

LUCKY COLORS: Purple, Beige, Deep Blue

PERSONAL YEAR 8

In an Eight year you will feel the stirrings of ambition and a desire to better your financial status after the previous slow year. This year will afford you with many opportunities to be successful in advancing your business, career, and standing in life. Since you are in a fulfillment cycle it is very important that you set a goal and aim right for it, or else you will lose the opportunity to achieve.

Money is an important lesson this year. You may find yourself drained mentally from trying to make ends meet. If you use your good judgment in managing your finances by investing, paying off old debts and working hard towards your success, this year should be abundant. However, if you are careless you could end up losing financially. This is a good year to buy or sell property.

This year you have the ability to be persuasive, use it and be determined in your goals, but be careful in not being dominant with others.

LUCKY COLORS: Tan, Coffee, Ivory

PERSONAL YEAR 9

During this year many of your affairs come to an end. This is a year when you will let go of the old. You are getting ready for a new start in your life for next year. Instead of seeing this as a time of sadness its an opportunity for you to give room for the new in your life. Events will promote changes in relationships, home and business.

The best time for you to make decisions is after September when the vibrations will be more supportive of change, and your mind will be clearer. Everything before that is still in the old cycle.

This year will offer you the opportunity to help others straighten out their affairs. Charity and compassion are important lessons this year. The Universe is teaching you that as you give you will receive.

LUCKY COLORS: Red, Orange, Blue, White, Yellow

Kenny Wordsmith 8 years ago from Chennai

Okay, thanks,I'm No:9 this year. I let go of the old, and be compassionate. Fine. I don't mind receiving as I gave. All in all, positive. :)

VioletSun 8 years ago from Oregon/ Name: Marie Author

I am on a number 8 year= money. WHooooO! Well, its more than that, its being responsible with finances, being organized, etc... :)

Kenny Wordsmith 8 years ago from Chennai

But it's okay to WHooooO! I guess! :)

Abhinaya 8 years ago

I am number 3 this year.I thought gossip had healing powers.;-)))

VioletSun 8 years ago from Oregon/ Name: Marie Author

LOL! Someone could write a hub on the err... healing powers of gossip. :):):)

MrMarmalade 8 years ago from Sydney

Not too keen on mine, Little bird told me to expect great things and now I am being told to look back and reflect.

If I change my date of birth will i have a better future?

Great hub thank you

VioletSun 8 years ago from Oregon/ Name: Marie Author

Mr.Marmalade: LOL!! Another little bird will tell you can reflect and expect great things at the same time.

Earth Angel 8 years ago

GREAT Hub VioletSun!! I'm a six this year and it is just perfect for me!! Thank you for sharing!! Blessings always, Earth Angel!!

AuraGem 8 years ago from Victoria, Australia

Thank you so much for this hub! I am a number 3, and it definitely fits what I have been trying to do for the last couple of years! What else but trying to get my writing noticed! LOL! Love the possibilities in games of chance! I could really do with that too!

Thanks for sharing!

Smiles and Light!

VioletSun 8 years ago from Oregon/ Name: Marie Author

VioletSun 8 years ago from Oregon/ Name: Marie Author

AuraGem: The 3 year is one of my favorite years, as is a number 5, as there is usually movement during a 5 year; my movement during a number 5 year was leaving NYC after living there most of my life, and relocating to a rural town to be with my soulmate, the best move I ever made. Have fun during this cycle! :)

VioletSun 8 years ago from Oregon/ Name: Marie Author

AuraGem: I meant a rural town in Oregon. Couldn't edit the message in time.

thooghun 8 years ago from Rome, Italy

PERSONAL YEAR 8:

Although im not a great fan of this sort of "stuff". I'm amazed at how accurately this description matches the events that look set to dominate the year. Furthermore, these are very atypical goals which have only surfaced this year!

Even had the numerology not been as spot-on as it seems to have been, it's still a good read ;)

Thoog.

AuraGem 8 years ago from Victoria, Australia

Thanks for the comment VioletSun. I am hoping this year is life changing for my writing! You give me hope!

Smiles and Light

VioletSun 8 years ago from Oregon/ Name: Marie Author

Thoogun: Thank you for your input!

vrajavala 8 years ago from Port St. Lucie

I am an astrologer, but I oftentimes used numerology to make quick predictions.

as far as colors are concerned, I am a member of http://p-g-a.org and oftentimes prescribe gems for healing. My daughter and I are both hearin-impaired.

VioletSun 8 years ago from Oregon/ Name: Marie Author

Vrajavala: That's an advantage to be proficient in Astrology and also numerology. Thanks for visiting this hub. :)

Jewels 8 years ago from Australia

Thanks VioletSun, this is indeed a timely read. I'm in a year 8 now and am about to job hunt starting tomorrow. So amazing, I spent most of last year in a reclusive and reflective state. The end of last year (2007) I engaged in meditation practices. Is great to look back using numerology and/or astrology and see how I actually did what was 'forecast'.

APCwiz 8 years ago

This is an interesting site. And I have always believed that either my horoscope or numerology had a bigber message than I was usually getting. I calculated a number 8 for myself and a number 2 for my wife. And reading into the description, it is interestly close to where we are and what we are looking to achieve this year. I am in the process with my wife of purchasing a business that I have been gearing up for, for the last 15 years of my career. And she is in a reflective state of having lost all of the weight she gained from giving birth to our son. She looks great, like a trophy wife again, and I feel great knowing that our lives are coming together where we both want to be! Great stuff!

VioletSun 8 years ago from Oregon/ Name: Marie Author

Jewels: I am also on a number 8 year; for job hunts this is a great time, so good luck to you!

APCwiz: Your comments made me smile, really. I can feel the love you have for your wife and it nice; best of luck with your business! I am also feeling the urgue to move in new directions business wise.

Teris 8 years ago from USA

Good year for a 3, I certainly will welcome it, games of chance, winning ...ooohh..goodie. I stay away from gossip too...

Teris

VioletSun 8 years ago from Oregon/ Name: Marie Author

Teris: Aaah, a 3 year is my favorite one. Have fun this year!

ripplemaker 8 years ago from Cebu, Philippines

Violet, I'm number 2 this year. Hmmm...slow down and a time to reflect and meditate...sounds like great advice to me. :-)

VioletSun 8 years ago from Oregon/ Name: Marie Author

Ripplemaker: A good year to improve relationships with others and the relationship with ourselves. :)

RFox 8 years ago

I too am a number 8 and it's about time! Lol. But seriously this year has already been taken over with my career pursuits and I've never been truly serious about my career before. I was just traveling and coasting in life, now I'm buckling down and have set goals which are coming together. Should be an interesting ride.

Oh yeah and the money would certainly be helpful at this point. :)

VioletSun 8 years ago from Oregon/ Name: Marie Author

Rfox:

This year which is a number 8 for me has already started with my entering a business partneship, and an increase in income. About time! :)

pgrundy 8 years ago

Great Hub violetsun! I love numerology. I am in an 8 year this year, and it is going pretty much exactly as your description in this hub. Thanks!

VioletSun 8 years ago from Oregon/ Name: Marie Author

Pgrundy: This is why you are thinking of a career change, as mentioned in your recent hub. ;)

compu-smart 8 years ago from London UK

My friend really believes in this number stuff and has told me i need to move home because of the door number i live at!!

VioletSun 8 years ago from Oregon/ Name: Marie Author

Oh, no! LOL!!! We create our reality with our thoughts, so that helps balance a number that may not have a good "vibe".

tanvir munim 8 years ago from Dhaka, Bangladesh

I believe in numerology in a sense that the creation of number is the most significance creation of the human being. Thanks for such a beautiful article.

VioletSun 8 years ago from Oregon/ Name: Marie Author

compu-smart 8 years ago from London UK

Im still moving!! lol, to a place that "hopefully" has a much better vibe!

gjcody 8 years ago

This sounds like so much fun to read. I will be back to read more. Thank you for coming by and becoming a fan

I always wondered why 4's 1's and 2's always show up in my life and I mean really show up in many combinations from birthdays to events ...what does that mean ..well I just thought I would ask ...thank you for sharing ...my best to you!

VioletSun 8 years ago from Oregon/ Name: Marie Author

Hi, compu-smart: always a pleasure to see you stop by! :)

Gicody: Read that numbers in pairs are messages from the universe, 333's would be an angelic number; had a chart that gave me the meanings of the numbers but lost it. Doreen Virtue sells a book that explains these numbers. Thanks for stopping by!

Bard of Ely 8 years ago from Lisbon, Portugal

It turns out I am a year 7 just like the example given! Interesting stuff!

Amanda Severn 8 years ago from UK

Very Interesting! I'm a year 9, and actually, even before I read this I had already planned a lot of big changes for the coming year. Hmmm.

VioletSun 8 years ago from Oregon/ Name: Marie Author

Hi, Bard of Ely:

A 7 year is nice for those who are aligned spiritually, and boring for those who want more action. Thanks for commenting!

Amanda: Aaaah, a 9 year, can't wait for mine which is next year; it can be challenging or fun, depending on how we deal with change. Thanks for visiting!

mureksoy 8 years ago from Florida USA

YAY! I'm an 8 this year too! I'm in the beginning of starting a business and totally stressed, but this definitely makes me feel like my instincts and timing are good! Now I just have to focus. THANKS!

VioletSun 8 years ago from Oregon/ Name: Marie Author

Good luck mureksoy. Its perfect timing for you, at least this is what the numbers, say!

Melissa G 8 years ago from Tempe, AZ

This is great--my personal year is a four, I'm getting ready to move in with my boyfriend, we're currently looking at houses, and I've had a tremendous amount of work to do this year! Plus, a friend called me yesterday and asked what my two favorite colors were, and the first ones that came to mind were blue and green! I'm fascinated by numbers, especially 47 (as I was thinking that, I glanced down and saw it's 9:47), so I look forward to more hubs about numerology!

VioletSun 8 years ago from Oregon/ Name: Marie Author

Melissa: Wow, you are definitely in the flow with your numbers and colors- I love these confirmations!

Mighty Mom 7 years ago from Where Left is Right, CA

Perfect hub to come upon early in 2009. I'm fascinated with numerology and am so glad to have a source here on HP to provide that stimulation! 2009 is an "8" year for me and a "9" year for my husband. Right on the money for both. Thanks! MM

VioletSun 7 years ago from Oregon/ Name: Marie Author

Hi, MM: I wrote this hub last year, but the meaning of the numbers remain the same no matter what year it is, so I changed the title to for "New Year." I was an 8 last year, and opportunities to make good money, suddenly presented themselves, but I didn't save the way I should have. The 8 year is also a lesson on wisdom. My 9 year started right on the money. :) Meaning, I am finding opportunities to serve.

I will be adding this link to my hub later, but wanted you to have it. Its a very in depth numerological reading, which I couldn't touch in a hub. http://www.acumind.com/Joe/persyr.html

Jewels 7 years ago from Australia

Hi Violet Sun, I hunted out this hub as I remembered it from last year. Just refreshing what my 9 Year has install. In my Year 8 by the way, I started my own business which is now flowing and bearing fruit. (In addition to allot of transformation on a personal level). It was hard, but very very good in what has transpired. 2009 feels good already.

VioletSun 7 years ago from Oregon/ Name: Marie Author

Jewels: Isn't it great, how accurate numbers can be, its uncanny. I was in a 8 year myself, and a business opened up for me and my spouse, and I made money as well; we had to work very hard too to correct some business glitches, but we did it. Thanks for being thoughtful and adding your comments of confirmation. :)

2009 also feels good for me...

countrywomen 7 years ago from Washington, USA

Marie- That's a lot of information. I will have to figure out my numerology for prediction now. Btw another hubber I found who is into a numerology and gemology is Anamika: http://hubpages.com/style/Wearing-Gemstones-Jewelr...

VioletSun 7 years ago from Oregon/ Name: Marie Author

CW: Thanks for the link, just checked her hub out, and left a comment. She shares very interesting information.

countrywomen 7 years ago from Washington, USA

Somehow I feel maybe in another life you were born in the east as you do have a lot of insight/interest about eastern traditions/philosophy.

VioletSun 7 years ago from Oregon/ Name: Marie Author

CW: I just had little chills; yes, I have been interested in eastern philosophy for many years, and I am deeper into it nowadays with Phil, its something that resonates with my soul.

countrywomen 7 years ago from Washington, USA

I always get such positive spiritual vibes while talking to you, Ripplemaker, Daisybee and few others over here. Your soul does give such positive vibrations to others. I am so glad I have met so many wonderful souls over here on hub pages.

VioletSun 7 years ago from Oregon/ Name: Marie Author

CW: Thank you so much! I also feel very grateful to have met you and the others. :)

Jane@CM 6 years ago

Okay this is freaky! I'm year 6 "A six personal year will bring you more responsibility and obligations especially towards your loved ones." - my hubby has moved to another state & I'm totally responsible for selling our house, taking care of the kids....at the end of the year, according to this article, I should be happily settled into our new home, being a domestic diva again. This gave me chills - its so close to what I am dealing with.

VioletSun 6 years ago from Oregon/ Name: Marie Author

Jane: Whoa, it gave me chills too! The numbers can be pretty accurate, but of course we have free will and can change things by our decisions/choices. Hope the year concludes well for you and your family! :)

Shalini Kagal 6 years ago from India

Strange how we vibrate to numbers! Great hub, Marie - I'm an 8 this year - here's to setting goals and aiming for them!

VioletSun 6 years ago from Oregon/ Name: Marie Author

Hi Shalini: I like the 8 year, its a strong number. I am a number 1 this year, glad I came back to read the numbers so I keep focused as well. :) Thanks for stopping by!

Jewels 6 years ago from Australia

This hub is timeless! :) It's a one year for me, definitely new beginnings after many many years of Saturn transiting my personal houses. I'm ready for some good stuff.

VioletSun 6 years ago from Oregon/ Name: Marie Author

Jewels: I was juuust thinking of you about 2 hours ago at how you came back (was reading the comments again) and here you are. :) We are both in a one year and glad you are free from Saturn! I am already seeing changes, healing taking place.

Jewels 6 years ago from Australia

I will never be free from Saturn, it's on my midheaven in my natal chart. A life of transformation it seems. It's a grand teacher, though I get caught in its limitations.

Good to see you again VioletSun.

Alan 6 years ago

Any experiences with No. 1 Personal Years?? About to head into a new cycle. I really want change, any change!!!

VioletSun 6 years ago from Oregon/ Name: Marie Author

Hi, Alan: I am in a number 1 year this year, and my "change", was writing my book which is almost completed, because this is what I wanted, as well as letting go of negative patterns; for others a number 1 years has been good for starting a business.

I wish you luck with change!

Alan 6 years ago

Thank you! I guess any kind of beginning is favored, just have to make sure its the one I want because it affects the next 9 years ouch!

dallas93444 6 years ago from Bakersfield, CA

Initially, as a former science instructor, I was smug in my belief numerology was a crutch for the superstitious. However, as I experience life I am beginning to have an open mind. I have studied and written about quantum physics, fractals and etc... They all seem to have a "common denominator:" ...vibrational frequencies. Yep, you guessed it, numbers such as the Golden Ratio, are an integral part of the universe. An example: Flocks of birds behave the same as the magnetic field when disturbed. The algorithms are similar... Our DNA acts as an antenna... Everything is connected and everywhere at once...

VioletSun 6 years ago from Oregon/ Name: Marie Author

Dallas: I love to read authors who are scientific and who have an open mind, I think of Candance Pert who is into quantum physics and is a scientist. I am very happy to meet you, will be following you!

sungaromero 5 years ago from Out and about.

This is fascinating! I've always found numerology fascinating but have never really gotten into it due to all the calculations (math isn't one of my strong suits). Thanks for breaking it down into very simple terms.

VioletSun 5 years ago from Oregon/ Name: Marie Author

Math isn't my strong suits either, reason why I didn't get into astrology. Numerology is easier, and I have found that numerology can be helpful as a compass of where we are going. :)

aleeyu 4 years ago

i am in PERSONAL YEAR 11/2 cycle.. i think this is hell!!! because one has to be cautious,doormat,coperative, and you have to be very tactful especially when dealing with people who are so stupid and domineering in nature. and one has to be careful not to reveal plans to others because any mistake you do will bring disaster full of troubles to one life. the worst part of it is that even when others attack you and want to fight you.... you have to be tactful because aggressiveness will work against you. meeehn these 2 personal cycle is devilish in nature !!! i am just waiting for august so that personal year 3 will begin to set in.

VioletSun 4 years ago from Oregon/ Name: Marie Author

Hi Aleeyu, a number 2 year can also be a year where you remain peaceful, no matter what happens, but yes, a number 2 is slower. ;)

Karen Ellis 3 years ago from Central Oregon

Hi VioletSun,

It is an 8 year for me. However, because I don't have any 8s in my numerology chart otherwise, I understand that 8 is a challenge number for me (I think). So, we will see. My life path number is 11, with my birthday a 22. Also, my first name adds up to 22, interestingly. My life has been a spiritual search, so maybe that explains these master numbers.

VioletSun 3 years ago from Oregon/ Name: Marie Author

An 8 year can be a very good one for you depending on your choices. With those powerful master numbers you have, your intuition must be developed and you can rely on your intuition to guide you.

Karen Ellis 3 years ago from Central Oregon

Thanks. The problem with intuition is that we have been taught to ignore it, but I think I am doing better at listening to it in my latter years.

Terry27 3 years ago from The Place Called Love

Marie, what an awesome article! Thank you very much for sharing the link with us. I have a great interest in the meaning of numbers, as you already know. This year, I am in Personal Year One. Wow! That explains everything. :) I also noticed that you included a link to a numerological book that Erishka recommended: "Numerology and the Divine Triangle" Thanks, again, my friend, for sharing this fascinating subject. :)

VioletSun 3 years ago from Oregon/ Name: Marie Author

Terry, Wow. I did add the link to the book we discussed. This was four years ago. I will order it when I catch up with half a dozen books I am reading at the same time. Thanks for sharing this hub in your Facebook timeline. :)

k@ri 23 months ago from Sunny Southern California

This was fun! I'm in a 7 year---time for reevaluation. Funny, it seems to be what I have been doing this month. :)
