The lower part of the Decoz Chart system included in the World Numerology App shows the Transits, Essence, and Personal Year cycles. From the top: the person's age, Physical Transit, Mental Transit, Spiritual Transit, double-digit Essence, single-digit Essence, the Period Cycles, a space, then the Personal Year cycle, the calendar year, and Pinnacle Cycles.
The problem with Essence cycles is that they are not as easy to calculate. Before I explain the formula for the Essence cycles, let me point out a few other things that are important and different from the Personal Year cycles.
Your Transit and Essence cycles are derived from the letters in your full name at birth. The Personal Year/Month/Day cycles are based on your date of birth.
Personal Year/Month/Day cycles run in tandem with the calendar year, although it is not always exactly from January to December. This depends on whether your date of birth is close to the end or beginning of the calendar year or closer to the center. Essence and Transit cycles run from birthday to birthday.
Most importantly, the effect of Personal Years (as well as Personal Month and Day cycles) is felt "externally," not unlike the weather or the environment you find yourself in.
Essence and Transit cycles are felt "internally;" think of it as your state of being, your mood and emotional state.
Whereas Personal Year cycles tend to reveal circumstances around you, offering you opportunities as well as challenges to which you respond, Essence and Transit cycles reveal your state of mind -- where you're at on your path, what you want and what motivates you.
This is similar to the Life Path, which is also based on your date of birth and shows the path you're on, and the core numbers from your name, which reveals the person walking that path. These are two distinctly different views.
If you seek a more in-depth and complete understanding of where you are in your personal evolution and what you can expect to experience in the near -- or not so near -- future, you need to look at both sets of cycles.
As an example, let's say that you are in a 4 Personal Year. You will find that your career is more demanding, there is no room for procrastination, you are swamped with details and that you regularly get frustrated with the slow pace in which everything seems to move.
You will also find that people lean on you more than usual, especially those who are not very efficient at keeping the material/financial side of their lives under control.
For these reasons, you will find that you take your job more seriously, are less social and focus better than at other times in your life.
However, if you also have a 5 Essence cycle, all the influences of the 4 Personal Year are still there, but you have a very difficult time responding to their requirements properly. Instead, you feel restless, scattered and easily bored. The 5 Essence, the internal cycle, puts you in a state of mind that is almost directly opposite from what the 4 Personal Year is asking from you -- a shorter-than-usual attention span, a strong need to go out and be social and have fun, to postpone things, to travel and to be impulsive.
On the other hand, if you have a 4 Personal Year cycle coupled with a 6 Essence, you are in much better shape to take advantage of the opportunities of the 4. Because a 6 Essence makes you feel responsible, balanced, capable, stable and comfortable with your surroundings. People respond better to you.
Our World Numerology Collection, offers an in-depth Numerology forecast that talks about your Essence as well as your Personal Year cycles in a way that should help you get a better picture of your current cycles.
Your Transit cycles are also included in the report, and they form the foundation for your Essence cycle. You find the Transit cycles by adding the number of years equal to the numerology value of each letter in your name until you reach your current age.
For example, if your first name is Johannes, the first year after you were born has a "J" First Transit, but only for one year because the letter "J" has a value of 1 and therefore only lasts one year. For the next six years the letter "O" is in place because the "O" has a value of 6, and therefore runs for six years and so forth. The "H" is an 8, and thus occupies its position as a First Transit for eight years. When you have worked your way through the whole first name, it starts all over.
As you can see, calculating Essence and Transit cycles is considerably more complicated than Personal Years. But if you are up for it, you can learn more about those cycles here.
