Do you notice 777 on license plates? Always seem to look up at 11:11? Do your birthday numbers show up synchronistically? Congratulations! You’re paying attention to numerology. 
Numerology is the study of the frequency of numbers and their meanings. Numerology can be used to understand the vibration of your name and life path. It can also influence the energy of a home, office, car, or property.  There are many interpretations of the numbers 1-9 – the below is what has been passed down to me.

Personalizing the Numbers

What is your personal year number?

To determine your personal year, add the digits of your birth month and day to the current year, then reduce the sum to a single digit. For example, if you were born on April 3 and the current year is 2024:


  1. Add the month and day of your birth: 4 (April) + 3 = 7.

  2. Add this to the current year: 7 + 2024 = 2031.

  3. Reduce 2031 to a single digit: 2 + 0 + 3 + 1 = 6.
    • In this example, 2024 would be a 6 Year for you.
