In this article, we will explore the meaning and symbolism behind your 1 personal year numerology. Numerology is a fun way to understand more about the cycles in your life. In numerology, your personal year number tells you the themes, energies, and symbolism you can expect to experience during that a given year. Each year on your birthday, you transition from one personal year to the next and the energies you experience transition as well.
How to calculate your personal year numerology
Before understanding your personal year, you need to know which personal year number you are in right now.
To calculate your current personal year, use the following steps:
- [Number of your birth month] + [Birth Day] + [Current Year]
- Add the digits in each bracket until you get a single digit
- Add those three numbers together
- Keep add the digits together and reducing down until you get a single digit (or, alternatively a number like 11, 22, 33, etc., also called master numbers)
For example, if your birthday is April 12, your personal year calculation will look like this:
-  + + 
-  ++ 
- Personal Year 5
Personal Years go from birthday to birthday, so if your birthday is April 12, you will be in a personal year 5 through April 12, 2023. After that date, you transition into a personal year 6.
