Your Cycles – Past, Present, and Future
I was 25 years old and my life was about to change radically; from the predictability of typical young married life to a whirlwind of often chaotic activity over a nine-year period.
My husband was in graduate school when I became pregnant. When our baby was 8 months old, we moved more than 1,000 miles to his first job. Three years later we moved again more than 500 miles to his second job. Less than a year later we were on our way back, more than 600 miles, to my parents’ home where my mother had suffered a life-threatening illness.
At this time, my husband and I separated, I took care of my mother as she recovered, became a student of metaphysics, got a divorce, became a single mother, and entered the work force. I had experienced an about-face.
What was happening, unbeknownst to me, was my second Pinnacle, the number 5, the number of freedom and change, letting go of the old and making way for the new.
How many times have you wished you had a crystal ball? I certainly could have used one then. How reassuring it would have been to know these occurrences were natural elements of my life purpose.
Today we’ll be talking about what’s happening behind the scenes in your life; the deeper meaning of your experiences.
There are many familiar cycles that influence our lives; the seven-year cycles of the stages of maturity; the time-telling cycles of 365 days, twelve months, thirty days, seven days, twenty-four hours; and the cycles of the planets as they travel across the sky. We live in these cycles automatically and move through them without thinking about them. They are an integral part of life.
Numerology cycles represent experiences that you move through at specific times during your life. Your cycles present opportunities for learning to master life. They enhance your core qualities and stretch your abilities. They are automatic, and when you are aware of them you can take full advantage of the experiences they provide.
Understanding your cycles enables you to navigate the highs and lows of life with more confidence, realizing that everything is unfolding for your good.
If you are going through a time when nothing seems to be working for you, feeling as if you are swimming upstream and getting nowhere, chances are you are resisting the influence a numerology cycle.
Our numerology cycles vary in length from one month to several years. The day we are born we are under the influence of three long cycles at once, and two shorter ones. This idea may seem confusing and overwhelming, but our cycles mesh together seamlessly to provide an environment in which we can thrive.
There are four numerology cycles, called Pinnacles, Challenges, Personal Years, and Personal Months. There is one more I call Unfinished Business, which represents an uncompleted cycle from the past.
Each of us has four Pinnacles, whose influences occur in sequence, 1, 2, 3, and 4 over the course of our lives. The number and duration of each Pinnacle are calculated from your birth date.
Pinnacles represent experiences that strengthen you and exercise your talents. My first Pinnacle was 1, which gave me opportunities to be independent. I also experienced resistance and frustration, since grownups didn’t appreciate independence in children back in the day. If my parents had known about numerology they could have been more nurturing and supportive of my independence.
I loved discovering and exploring new things and ideas, another aspect of the number 1 Pinnacle. It provided the perfect environment for exploration of psychic phenomena as I grew older, an interest which set me apart from my family and most of my friends.
I had many unique experiences during that period. Sometimes I felt like a fish out of water because of my unconventional outlook in general, but I learned from numerology years later that my experiences were preparing me to trust myself in spite of what others may think. I felt excited and validated the first time I looked at my Chaldean Soul Chart and understood what was happening in my past.
Will you recognize your Pinnacles in the interpretations below? What seems to be a prominent theme in your life right now?
This is the time of pioneering new territory, exercising leadership, and exploring and developing new ideas. You must take action and use initiative to be successful. Experiences that help you develop independence, individualism, originality, and courage will be presented to you. You will need to stand on your own two feet and rely on yourself to get things done.

Engagement or marriage are possible. Music and other artistic activities are good outlets for you. Psychic sensitivity is strong now, as well. You achieve a great deal by having patience with yourself and others.

Self expression is your path to success now. You are focused on the lighter side of life, entertaining and being entertained. Express your feelings and thoughts genuinely – you will be given many opportunities. Writing, pubic speaking, acting, stage/movie production, visual arts, dancing, singing, and design are possible. Share the joy you will be experiencing.
Down side: fingers in too many pies, too much activity, losing your direction, tendencies to be over emotional and self-centered.
This is a period of building, attending to detail, working hard and enjoying it, taking pride in your work, being part of a team, following directions, establishing schedules, practicing discipline, taking your time and being thorough. It is prudent to save your money and build a financial foundation. You are getting all your ducks in a row, preparing for success in the future.

Money could fluctuate up and down.

Your attention is on home, family, and community now. You may be addressing adjustments and changes at home. It is a good time to get married if you are in a loving relationship. Service to community it a rewarding possibility. You create prosperity now by settling down and embracing responsibility.
Down side: your crabby criticizing will tell you when you are doing too much for others and not enough for yourself.
You are drawn to introspection during this cycle. It is a time for spiritual housecleaning; looking inside, taking stock, renewing your spirit, and making any adjustments necessary to restore your inner balance and expand your mind. You may want to delve into religion, philosophy, meditation, and enjoy nature. It’s a good time to go back to school, begin higher education, and refine your knowledge to become an expert in your field.

You could receive a promotion (more responsibility) at work. Profits could increase if you own your own business. You will attract opportunities to develop your executive ability. Stay focused and maintain your values to accomplish your goals. Demonstrate efficiency, dependability, determination, strength, good management, good judgment, and diplomacy. Persevere, be uncompromising, thorough, and exacting.
Down side: trying to drive that bulldozer over anything and anyone who gets in your way; judging yourself and others by how many toys you/they have.
This is a cycle of completion. It could be an emotional time because it is a time of endings. It is preparation for new beginnings. You could be ending a job, a relationship, or a way of life that will prepare you for moving on. Learning to love unconditionally is a key now and will attract unconditional love to you. You will have opportunity to be of service to many. Be willing to help in any way you can, and enjoy good times with friends and loved ones.

Follow your hunches and trust your inner awareness, for you will have heightened sensitivity now. Focus on exciting activities that uplift the spirit. You’ll have a lot of fun.
Down side: impatience, hastiness, arrogance. Ideals are great because they keep you focused, but don’t let them become more important than people. If you feel nervous or anxious, chances are you are spending too much time dreaming and not enough time acting on your dreams. Get up off that couch and get going. The world is waiting.
This is the time to use your talents and experience to make your dream a reality – to unite the spiritual and material. You have opportunities to organize, plan, lead, and accomplish projects that serve large numbers of people, focused on improving conditions on a community, national, or international scale.

This cycle offers experiences that expand your loving nature. Focus on the good in everyone, see through so-called imperfections and nurture the loving presence in everyone.

People love to come to your parties. Nurture your creativity and your appreciation of beauty.
Down side: becoming too involved in the problems of others. Your opportunity is to help others, not to live their lives. Everyone has inner guidance; let them use it.
Knowing your cycles can help you understand your past experiences, get the most out of your present life, and give you a preview of your future. Here are some more experiences I’ve had, just to give you a sense of how your Pinnacles flow. Keep in mind, I didn’t know about numerology for many years. When I discovered Chaldean numerology, I was amazed at how closely my life had followed my cycles.
My third Pinnacle was 6 and lasted nine years. It was during this cycle that I became a teacher, lecturer, and counselor in personal development. I traveled around the Eastern and Mid-western U.S. for two years lecturing and teaching and then opened a private practice where I taught locally. I had family challenges, too, during this time. It was during this cycle that I discovered Chaldean numerology.
Looking into my future, I saw that my final Pinnacle, which lasts till the end of life, was 7. It was a mystery to me how this one would manifest itself. But, typically of 7, opportunities opened up for me to go back to school. I earned certification as a Crystal Healing facilitator, a Transformational Breath facilitator, and received my Master’s degree in Applied Psychology, fulfilling a dream I’d had for many years.
I was saturated in learning, my talents stretched to the max, and happy as a clam.
I was at last able to address both the spiritual and psychological aspects of the psyche in my private practice. I designed the Chaldean Soul Chart then, too. I became a writer, something I had never imagined, and have several research projects going in numerology. I am always seeking knowledge about what makes us tick, and there are more books coming.
I hope you’ve found some useful information about what’s happening behind the scenes in your life and have gained insight into your brilliantly planned experiences.
