The Period Cycles

The Period cycles in your numerology chart are found in the center bar of the star-shape

Period Cycles are major stepping stones on your Life Path.


To use an analogy: If yearly cycles are the steps of the stairs, the transitions from one Period Cycle to the next are like the landings to the next floor.

Period Cycles appear in two places in the color chart. Inside the star and on the 7th row in the wave. As you can see on the color chart, Tom Cruise’s Period Cycles are 7, 3, and 9.


Like most stories, there are three great divisions of our lives

The First, or opening period, finds us groping to find our true nature; at the same time, we are trying to cope with the powerful forces that are present in our environment, our parents and the socio-economic conditions of our family, for example.

The Second Cycle, or middle period of our lives, brings about the slow emergence of our individual and creative talents. The initial part of this cycle - the early and mid 30s - represents a struggle to find our place in the world, while the late 30s, 40s, and early 50s, sees us with a greater degree of self-mastery and influence over the environment.

The Third, or final Cycle, can represent a flowering of our inner being, such that our true nature has finally come to fruition. It is during this period that one has the greatest degree of self-expression and power.



One of the easier calculations, the three Period Cycles are based on the month, day, and year of birth respectively.


The First Period Cycle

The First Period Cycle starts at birth and lasts until the Personal Year cycle closest to your 29th Birthday. We have not yet discussed the Personal Year cycles, so just refer to the chart below.

The First Period Cycle is your month of birth reduced to a single digit number, or a Master number.

The months January through September don’t require calculation – they are already single digits. October is the 10th month and reduces to 1. November is the 11th month; 11 is a Master number, so we do not reduce it any further. And December is the 12th month, which reduces to 3.



The Second Period Cycle

The Second Period Cycle is your day of birth reduced to a single digit number, or a Master number.



The Third Period Cycle

The Third Period Cycle is your year of birth reduced to a single digit number, or a Master number.



The exact age you make the transition from one Period Cycle to the next is determined by your Life Path, and is listed in the chart below. (Remember, the rule is that your second Period Cycle always starts with the 1 Personal Year closest to your 29th Birth Date.)
