Finding Your Word with Numerology

Posted January 4, 2016 by Hazellie in Mindfulness / 0 Comments


Happy New Year 2016, dear readers!

In my previous post I wrote about Finding Your Word for 2016 with Susannah Conway. If you’re still trying to find your word even after taking Susannah’s (free!) course, here are some numerology information that may help you make your decision.

I wrote about why I chose the word NURTURE, and I shared a little about why I felt this word was right for me this year, but I didn’t mention the numerological reason I chose the word. So here it is.


2016: The Universal Year of 9

2016 in numerology, breaks down into the number 9, which represents humanitarianism, selflessness, and leadership. In tarot, it also corresponds to the 9th card in the Major Arcana, The Hermit. You can read a wonderful article about 2016 as the Tarot Year of the Hermit here at Beth Owl’s Daughter’s blog.

It’s a universal year of 9, because it’s 2016 everywhere in the world, and the energies of the number 9 will affect all of us this year. You will hear more heartwarming stories about generosity and selflessness, you may also find yourself giving more.

The 9 is also the number of teachers, and counselors, so perhaps you will be sharing your knowledge with others generously, or lending an ear or a helping hand to people who need them.

However, there’s another thing to consider; while 2016 may be a universal year of 9, it is personal year of 6 for me.

Here’s how it works:

My birthday + my birth month + (current year) = my personal year.

My birthday is October 14 so,

14 + 10 + 2016 = 1+4+1+0+2+0+1+6 = 15 = 1+5 = 6, my personal year. 

If you would like to find your personal year number, just calculate it the way I did, with your birth day and month, then find the meanings of the numbers here:

Narrow Down Your Focus

My word NURTURE for my personal year of 6 seems pretty obvious now, doesn’t it?

Yet it still took me a while before I committed to it, because there are many other words that could’ve also been right for the number 6, like;

  • harmony
  • creativity
  • independence
  • strength
  • peaceful
  • home
  • balance
  • compassion


These are just a few words that would fit well for someone who is in their personal year of 6.

Each of the words listed above have their own very distinctive meanings and connotations even though all of them are traits of the number 6. I could’ve gone with Balance, or Strength, or any of the words listed above, but I explained why I chose the word NURTURE out of all the other words I considered.


Find Your Word

Once you’ve calculated your personal year number and found the meanings, you can choose your word from the given meanings above, or you can find more words that embody the traits of your personal year number.

For example, knowing that the number 6 represent homemakers who take pride in decorating their homes and making it clean, tidy, and comfortable gives you plenty of possibilities.

If you feel that you want to focus on getting organized this year, this gives you;

  • organize
  • declutter
  • minimize
  • simplify
  • tidy
  • and so on…


If you feel that you’d rather focus on the decorating aspect of it, then;

  • decorate
  • beautify
  • creative
  • artistic
  • comfort
  • colorful
  • and so on…


You can do this for any of the numbers from 1 to 9, so it doesn’t matter what number your personal year falls under. I hope this helps you find your word. Do let me know the word you choose for your best year ever 2016!
