Epicycles Explained

epicycle (2) (1)

The Epicycle is a nine-year cycle. Each year has a theme or “vibration” to it. A year of one for example would be a year of new beginnings whereas a year of nine would be a year of endings. I look at each of these nine years as a template.

Everyone is experiencing the energy of one of these years. The careful examination of your Numerology chart will identify not only which personal year or vibration you are currently in but also how YOU will travel personally through it. Below are examples of the unique energy of each personal year. Can you guess which year you are in?

Here is a simple formula for determining your personal year.

Remember….each personal year starts Jan 1st and ends on Dec 31st.

Determine the universal year.

IE: 2017 2+0+1+7= 10 1+0=1 2017 is an 1 universal year.

Now….add your month of birth and your day of birth to the universal year.

IE: December is the 12th month. (You need to reduce double digits to single digits.)

12th month = 1+2=3

24th day = 2+4=6

Now add the universal year of 1 to your month and day of birth.

IE: 3 + 6 + 1 = 10 1+0 = 1 You are in an 1 personal year. (This is a big year for someone in a 1 PERSONAL year because the universe is ALSO in a 1 year!)

Did you know that just knowing which personal year you are in is not enough?! If you really want to know how your year is going to play itself out you need to explore your birth name! Ann Perry shows how many factors contribute to how your year will roll out.

Remember….to get the total picture of what your personal year has to offer you, you may want to consider having a full reading done with me. Your name on your birth certificate provides me with your “essence” number. The essence determines just how you will travel through your personal year. The essence is a major component to your chart and provides so much light on your experience than just looking at the personal year alone!

Year of One

The year of one provides us with lots of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual energy. It’s “go time!”. Lots of opportunities will become available to you in a one year. This is the year for new beginnings. It’s a time to plant seeds. Anything you start in a year of one will directly influence your experience for the next 9 years. The focus is all around you.

Year of Two

Where the year of one was all about you the year of two is all about you and one other person. It’s a time of partnerships. You will enjoy a lot of one on one time.This could be you and a spouse, you and a child, you and a business partner. There will be lots of one on one activity going on. This is a time to be patient and sit in your “time out” chair. Patience will be necessary to move through this year. Watch the seeds that you planted last year as they are beginning to germinate.

Year of Three

Where last year was a year of one on one relationships, the year of three is a more social energy. Last year you were quite happy to cuddle on the couch with that special someone but this year you are happy to entertain and be entertained. It’s a creative year with lots of ideas brewing. The seeds you planted in year one are finally sprouting and you are beginning to feel expansion all around you. This creative energy does not allow for a lot of focus but the creative potential is awesome! Let the ideas flow in!

Year of Four

Where the year of three caused you to have no focus on anything but your social life the four asks you to get a bit more grounded and responsible. The year of four produces this amazing ability to be hyper-focused on whatever you want in your life. Unfortunately, most people tend to focus on what’s right in front of them. What you see most clearly is what you don’t have. “I don’t have enough time, money, energy resources etc.” The year of four is brilliant as it asks us to build strong foundations for ourselves. The reminder here is that everything you give your energy, time and focus to will get bigger. If you focus on what you don’t have enough of you’ll continue to get the same. So people tend to feel very stuck in a year of four because they focus too much on their limitations. Don’t waste this amazing energy on focusing on what you don’t have! Focus on what you do have!

Year of Five

Where the year of four had you feeling stuck the year of five is helping you feel free again. The straight jacket is finally off. You feel more comfortable taking a few risks. Change is almost certain and a dose of unexpected events is likely too. Be careful not to go overboard with your spending after a year of holding your money close. Travel is a definite theme for this year!

Year of Six

I like to call the year of six the year of domestic drama. Now don’t get me wrong. I’m not saying that you’ll be fighting with your spouse and family…but maybe you will! The focus of this year is on the home front. That being said, you might simply need a new roof or doors. It can be a focus on the dwelling or the people in it. It’s a year where you will learn the hard lessons around establishing balance in your life. It can be a challenging year for workaholics as they try to maintain balance with their work lives and their home life. The other consideration for this year are the lessons around responsibility. How much of this is really MY responsibility? How involved do I really need to be or can I feel safe to allow things to unfold without me being involved? This is all challenging as the other theme to this year is around the need to nurture people.

Year of Seven

After a year of a lot of involvement with people in your life the year of seven will be a year of quiet reflection and introspection. You will definitely want some time to yourself. This is a year where you will be asking yourself “What next?” “What do I really want for myself?” The year of seven is often a very spiritual year. It’s a great year to study and get in touch with yourself. I call this a “Head game” year as you are most definitely in your head rather than thinking from your heart. It’s a year where you may experience some self-doubt as you ponder the next move in your life.

Year of Eight

The year of eight brings welcome relief from being stuck in your head! It’s go time! This is a year full of manifestations. There is a huge focus on your personal economy. You’ll be faced with the questions around “Do I buy? Do I sell? Do I invest? Do I ask for a raise?”

This is big year to look at your financials and make decisions that will influence you for the next nine years.

Year of Nine

The year of nine is the last year of our epicycle. It’s the year that will groom us to get ready for the next year which will be a year of new beginnings. This year you will feel the need to kick to the curb anything that is standing in your way of getting ahead. You can have the yard sale of your life as you clean out your closets! You are consciously aware that you don’t want to carry any unnecessary baggage into the next new cycle. This includes not only “stuff” but people as well! You may have a few friends that you know are not positive influences in your life but you continue to see them anyway. If you don’t make conscious choices to limit your contact with them…the universe will do it for you so that you are surrounded by positive influences in your new year. This is a great time for forgiveness too. Who needs to be forgiven so you can move on? Sometimes a year of nine can be a bit scary. Huge shifts and changes happen leaving us to feel very vulnerable. The reality is that the universe has a wonderful plan for us which sometimes does not include what we already have.

On another note…

Remember that you only have “one kick at the cat” once in nine years to take advantage of what your personal year energy is offering you. Do you see just how important it is to know what energy is being given to you this year? This is your own personal road map!
