One of the easier calculations, the three Period Cycles are based on the month, day, and year of birth respectively.
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 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.
Period Cycles appear in two places. 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.
THE MEANING OF THE PERIOD CYCLE NUMBERS.
Audio Lecture: The Period Cycles. 6 Minutes.
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.
Your Period Cycles are based on your date of birth. 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.)
|Life Path||End of 1st,
start of 2nd cycle
|End of 2nd,
start of 3rd cycle
|2 and 11||25/26||52/53|
|4 and 22||32/33||59/60|
|6 and 33||30/31||57/58|
