numerological one year in 2017

We are headed into a Universal Fresh Start!!! I love that numerology confirms what I’ve been feeling- have you been feeling it, too?-  that a new cycle of life is upon us in 2017… and it’s going to be amazing!

My sister Nicole Claudat is a super-gifted intuitive numerologist and today she shares so much about the numerological energies of 2017 and how you can harness them to make this a superpowered year!

fresh starts in 2017

From Nicole:

Many people see time as linear, as one long, straight road that begins with birth and ends with death. Yet, many cultures recognize the cyclical nature of time, such as the movement of the sun and earth, and the pattern of the seasons.

In numerology there are many cycles, some lasting longer than others and some providing more of an energetic effect on the knowledge you will accumulate, lessons you will learn and challenges you will face. Many of the cycles in numerology consist of nine stages of development, each number necessarily needs to proceed the other, for each number brings us tools to help us with the next stage of development.

The Universal Year is one such cycle, and begins to rear it energetic head about three weeks before the start of the New Year.  You can think of the universal year as a blanket of energy that covers the entire universe and effects everyone, some people more than others, depending upon the congruence and dissonance between their Universal Year and Personal number. The Universal Year is felt by the whole world and denotes where we are and where we are going as a collective people.

To find the Universal Year for any year you just reduce the year to a single digit.

Universal Year Number 1:

You can calculate the Universal year number by adding the digits of the year in question. For example, using the upcoming year 2017, you would add each digit together to reduce it to a single digit. In this example of our upcoming year, you would add, (2+0+1+7) and that would equal 10. You would then further reduce the number 10 to a single digit by adding (1+0) which equals 1.

The number one symbolizes independence and individuality. It’s a time to plant seeds of change in order to attain our desired goals and this may need to be done alone, without the outside influence or opinions of others. Our vantage point will be shifting and we will be open to perceiving ourselves, others and life differently. This is a time to plan for the future that you want. This is a major time of development and achievement in your personal and business life.

The Universal Year of the one gives us all something brand new, it allows us to express and hone in on our uniqueness and is a big time to overcome negativity.

A really great thing to remember, is although we will carry a lot of individual and leadership energy, it is also important to become aware that cooperation and the respect for others opinions is something to be utilized as this will be the next Universal Year, which will be the 2 (cooperation and relationships).

The amount of influence your Universal Year number has in your life is partly dependent upon your Personal Year number. When the two numbers are of the same the energy, the Universal Year will have more of an impact on your life. Even if the numbers carry similar energy….the Universal Year number will be felt more strongly.

Here is a chart to show you the compatibility of numbers

The Personal Year number helps to answer the questions of, “What should I do this year?” , “How should I approach situations in my life?” and “What should I expect this upcoming year to teach me?”

The Personal Year gives you insight into where you are, where you are going, and how to best approach situations in the new year.

In order to calculate your Personal Year, you must first determine the Universal Year Number. (as explained above— we’re heading into a #1 year!)

Next, to calculate your Personal Year: add the number value of your month of birth, day of birth, and the Universal Year (in this case, #1 for 2017) . I will show you an example of someone born on December 10 with the 1 Universal Year. It is important to remember to reduce each value to a single digit before adding all the numbers together.

For Example:

December 10=

12 (birth month) + 10 (birth day)  + 1 (Universal Year)

(3 + 1 + 1 = 5)

In this case, the Personal Year is the 5.

If you add up your Personal Year, you can learn more about the numerological energy of 2017.

For 2017:

Personal Year 1: A year of new beginnings and fresh starts

Are you ready to kick-start a new dream? This is the perfect time to lay down the foundation for a new business, career, or relationship and jumpstart exciting and new projects. The number 1 personal year signifies the completion of the previous nine year cycle and the beginning of a new one. All the lessons that were learned in the last nine-year cycle are finally having an opportunity to begin to be actualized as the new year rolls in. This is not a time to sit on your laurels, as you have been waiting for this moment for the last nine years. Set your goals high. This will be a time of high energy and creativity. Take charge of your life, make decisive decisions, be courageous and stay focused and organized. This is a year of opportunities.

Personal Year 2: A year of relationships, sensitivity, and cooperation

The motto of this personal year should be, “Have faith in yourself.” In the previous year, the focus was on starting new ventures and “planting the seeds” of what you desire. The next step is to learn the virtue of patience, and through patience we learn to trust ourselves, others, and the universe. This is a time of high intuition. In this year avoid making decisions without seriously evaluating all outcomes. This is also a time to learn about partnerships and cooperation with others. This year may come with seemingly (but not actually!) more obstacles that previous years.  It’s important to understand that every year has some obstacles, but this year they will seem bigger because of your new desires that were laid down in the personal year of the 1. Patience is key here. Resist fear, resist negativity, be patient, enjoy relationships, and believe in yourself to succeed!

Personal Year 3: A year of motivation, creativity and inspiration

Are you ready to make some significant gains and have fun? This year is a year to enjoy friends, laugh often, and have an active social life. This is said to be a good financial year and a time where you may find yourself wanting to be more expressive and creative artistically. This is a year where you will spend a large amount of time enjoying other people’s company.   The key to being successful in this personal year is to avoid, “spreading yourself too thin”, and scattering your energy. Avoid being self-indigent and impulsive, as this will impede your spiritual evolution.

Personal Year 4: A year of hard work, discipline and opportunities

This is a year to be organized, flexible and practical. Details must be attended to and hard work is in order, both mentally and physically. With this personal year, you may feel limited and frustrated. Regardless, it’s time to “get to work”.   This is a time to take advantage of new opportunities that come your way. It is not unlikely you may have over-indulged in the personal year of the 3 and now is the time to get everything back into order and shape.

Personal Year 5: A year of change, freedom, and unpredictability

The year of freedom, variety, travel and change. This is a time to take risks. You will find yourself having to make decisions on the fly, instead of being able to mull over all outcomes. It’s a time of luck and spontaneity.   Be ready to expect and embrace the exciting unexpected, and avoid any desires to over-indulge in alcohol, food, and sex. Most importantly, keep promises and commitments you have made, despite your desire to avoid responsibility. Stay on track and have fun. Be constructive in your actions and you’ll be rewarded.

Personal Year 6: A year of responsibility, domestic affairs, and service

This year is about love, your home and responsibilities. You may find many people during this year confiding in you and asking for your help. In the personal year of the 6, be aware of people using you, stepping on you or taking advantage of you.  Since this is a year of selflessness and taking care of others needs, be aware of who you become close to  as you don’t want to be left emotionally drained.   During this year, your good deeds will be rewarded, just don’t fixate on instant outcomes.  You’ve given people strength and the confidence and it might be awhile before you see the rewards of your sacrifice.   This is a time to create a haven for balance and harmonious relationships. Redecorate your home and build a garden. Create a sanctuary.   This is a wonderful personal year to get married and start a home.

Personal Year 7: A year of contemplation, self-awareness, and spiritual atonement

This is a year to be introspective, a year to reflect on the past and contemplate the future. This is a year to garner the ability to be alone and feel comfortable. Introspection, meditation, contemplation, learning, reading, are all key elements of the 7 year. You might want to work on developing a deeper faith in spirituality and/or be open-minded towards metaphysical subjects.   This is a time of wisdom and trying to get to know yourself better. Embrace it. This is a time to fully get to know yourself and a great time to give up any substance, like drugs, alcohol, psychotropics, that inhibit the pure ability of knowing.

Personal Year 8: A year of reward, respect, and recognition

Money, Power, Success – Baby! This is the year to fully take charge. You’ve learned what you need and paid your dues to get this far, now let’s see the rewards. Put the pedal to the metal, your nose to the grindstone and make some financial gain. You learned all about yourself in the year of the 7, now believe it and shine. Make decisions with the mind you finely tuned last year and not impulsively.

Personal Year 9: A year of completion, release, and transformation

It’s over. Mission accomplished. Well, not quite. Now is the time to get into gear and reflect on the cycles past. Realize what you need, who you need, and most importantly, what you do not need.   Cast it away and never look back for this is a time to “clean house”.   You are gearing up to start a new cycle and should get rid of what brought you down in your current cycle. This is a time to choose what you want to take with you as you embark on your next journey. All this reflection will help you to grow!

I’m wishing you a Happy New Year!  ~ Nicole
