What is Numerology; with numerologist Hans Decoz

Your Personal Year number is a strong indication of the trends and circumstances you will experience during the year ahead.


Your Personal Year cycles are based on the Universal Year cycles and therefore run concurrent with the calendar year.

There are nine personal year numbers, which makes up a complete Epicycle. Each Epicycle reveals the progression or evolution of a specific part of your growth. Your progress along this Epicycle can be seen very logically, from the infancy or beginning of a growth period in your life, to the conclusion or culmination of that process.

The 1 personal year indicates your first steps in a new direction. The years that follow indicate your progress along this path, concluding with your 9 Personal Year, which completes the cycle.



Numerology views the Personal Years as the building steps that mark your progress through life.

To find your Personal Year number for any given year, add the month and the day of your birth, plus the Universal Year number for that year. For example, someone born on March 23 finds his or her Personal Year number for 2016 by adding 3 (March) plus 5 (23 is a 5) plus 9 (2016) to arrive at a Personal Year number of 17, which is reduced to 8.

NOTE: The Personal Year cycles are based on the Universal Year cycles and therefore run concurrent with the calendar year.




Just as we evolve through a nine-year cycle, so, too, do we experience nine-month and nine-day cycles, even though their impact is subtle compared to the Personal Year cycle. In numerology, the Personal Month and Personal Day cycles proceed according to the same pattern -- 1 through 9 -- that the Personal Year cycle does.

The numbers within the monthly and daily cycles have a similar, though less pronounced, impact on us than the yearly cycle has.


We can think of the yearly, monthly, and daily cycles as spirals within spirals, all interconnected. In any case, the patterns are essentially the same. They widen and encompass greater sweeps of time -- daily, monthly, and yearly patterns -- thus becoming more profound and powerful as they grow.

The Personal Year and Month cycles in a numerology chart

To find your Personal Month, add the single-digit value of the month to your Personal Year number.

For example, the person in our example has an 8 Personal Year. For the month of January, we add 1, making it a 9 Personal Month. For February we add 2, making it 10, which reduces to 1. February 2016 is therefore a 1 Personal Month for him.

To find your Personal Day number, add the number of the day to your Personal Month number and reduce the result to a single digit.

In our numerology charting system, we use a wagon wheel shape to show the Personal Year cycle, as well as the monthly cycles. The circle in the center on the numerology chart shows the year (2016), and the Personal Year cycle 9.

Each of the pie slices around it show the first letter of the month (J for January, F for February, etc.) and the Personal Month number. In our example, the personal Month number for January is 9.
