To find your First Pinnacle, add the numbers of your month and day of birth, arriving at a single-digit number.
For example, if you were born on May 15, 1949, your First Pinnacle would be found by adding the 5 (for May) and the 6 (for the fifteenth) to arrive at 11. Master numbers encountered during the Pinnacle calculations are not reduced. Someone born on November 5 would add 11 (for November - a Master number) and the 5 to get 16, which is 7.
To find your Second Pinnacle, add the day you were born to the year of your birth. Using May 15, 1949 again, add the 6 (for the fifteenth day) and the birth year 5 (for 1949) and arrive at another 11.
To find your Third Pinnacle, add the sum of the first and the second Pinnacles - in our example, 11 plus 11 - and arrive at 22. The 22 is a Master number and is therefore not reduced.
To find your Fourth and last Pinnacle, add your month and year of birth. Using the example, add 5 (for May) and 5 (for 1949) to arrive at 10, which reduces to 1.
The First Pinnacle (in Tom’s case a 1) is shown above the month and day of birth.
The Second Pinnacle is a 3 and appears above the day and year of birth.
The Third Pinnacle is a 4 and is centered right above the day of birth.
The Fourth Pinnacle is a 7 and occupies the top triangle of this star-shaped figure.
The Pinnacles are also found on the bottom row of the wave.

The Pinnacles are four long-term cycles, or periods, on our Life Path. Each Pinnacle represents a particular lesson we are working on. The first Pinnacle usually lasts from birth to between the ages of 30 and 35 (your specific Pinnacle periods are provided below). The middle two Pinnacles each last nine years. The last Pinnacle will stay with you for the remainder of your life.
The Pinnacles are very important. The transition from one Pinnacle to the next is always strongly felt. Your Pinnacles reveal the general conditions and events you will experience during the period. The Pinnacle describes the atmosphere, or the essential challenge you will be faced with.
You can prepare yourself for the times ahead by knowing your approaching Pinnacle number.
The transition from one Pinnacle to the next is usually prepared for approximately 2 years in advance. The latter part of that two year period is particularly strong. You will likely make some life-altering decisions - marriage, job or career change, or any number of major changes in your character.
Perhaps the most strongly felt change - internally as well as externally - is the transition from the first to the second Pinnacle. This change usually takes place in your late 20s or early 30s - the exact date depends on your Life Path number. You begin to feel the impact of this coming change approximately two years prior. This is usually a difficult transition, but once crossed provides a clear sense of direction in one's life. It also gives you a much firmer sense of your identity. It is a gateway to maturity.
