I thought it would be nice to talk about the components of a Chaldean Soul Chart to give you more of a feel for what it’s all about.
The definition of “pinnacle” on Dictionary.com is:

A pinnacle represents the highest you can go. You can’t go any higher. It’s the top of the mountain. It is reached by putting forth effort, taking action, having commitment, determination, discipline, inspiration, vision, and purpose.
That’s exactly what a pinnacle in numerology is, except it’s about reaching the pinnacle of personal achievement according to your life plan (which could include mountain climbing). It sounds like a lot of hard work; however, on one level it takes no effort at all, just the ability to trust yourself and follow your instincts. After that, it’s inspired action.
Pinnacles appear in the “Cycles” section of your Chaldean Soul Chart and represent periods in which you attract certain types of experience. There are 4 cycles. The duration of the first cycle varies according to your birth date, the 2nd and 3rd are each 9 years long, and the 4th and final one lasts for the remainder of life. Your age determines the pinnacle you are experiencing now.
These periods can be compared to paths up the slopes of your personal mountain. During these periods, you attract the specific kind of experiences that will help you fulfill your purpose. It’s not a matter of being forced. On the contrary, if you follow your path it seems to unfold automatically, effortlessly. You experience freedom and you open yourself to new possibilities.
Following your pinnacles is like being encouraged in a certain direction with no limitations. Your pinnacles guide you on a journey that gradually and safely unfolds your talents and capabilities. It’s resistance that produces struggle and uncertainty.
You always have a choice whether to take this journey or not. The great thing is that, on a soul level, you designed this plan to fit your every need . It can be an exciting journey if you allow your heart to open to its adventures.

Your pinnacles provide a picture of your past, present, and future.

Your opportunity, should you decide to accept it, is to enjoy the ride. Your cycles benefit you if you act within them. Think of pinnacles as recipes. All the ingredients are present, but you have to put them together and cook them to get the desired result.
Live your purpose every day.
