According to Numerology, 2016 is a Number 9 year (2+0+1+6=9), a year of endings, transformation and karma.
It is a year that we will all be guided to tie up loose ends, end things that are no longer serving us and to deal with the karmic debts that we have acquired during the last nine years.
In numerology, cycles flow in nine year periods and in order to start the new cycle which will begin next year in 2017, we must work with the vibration of 2016 in order to clear out our karmic debts.
During a Number 9 year, patterns are often seen such as, the ending of relationships, careers or habits and sometimes we may also experience the culmination of the choices that we have chosen to make during the last nine or so years.
In a Number 9 year, we are all given the opportunity to reflect on our behaviours and choices of the past and to determine whether we want to make changes or continue on the same path.
A Number 9 year is the perfect time to end things that have been holding us back and have been causing us stress and anxiety.
Because a Number 9 year is about endings, it is often not the best time to start anything new. Instead, it is a time to really assess what we have already been working on and to concentrate on making changes or letting go.
More specifically, you can work out your Personal Year Number to see how the vibration of 2016 will effect you in more detail.
To do this, you need to use your birthdate and reduce it down like so-
Birthdate Example: December 29
Reduce the numbers down to single digits by adding the numbers together
12 (month) becomes: 1+2=3
29 (day) becomes: 2+9=11 and 1+1=2
Then add these two numbers together to get:
You then want to add this number to 9 (as 2016 is a 9 year)
5+9=14 (reduce down double digits)
This gives you a personal number of 5
Basically, you are breaking down your month and day of birth into single digits and then adding it to 9 in order to get your personal number for 2016.
