## How to Calculate Your Personal Month Number

Each and every kind of number in numerology holds importance.

However, your Personal Month number is excellent for helping you understand the energies coming towards you during any given month, based on the Universal Month number, allowing you to plan accordingly.

The Universal Month number brings a certain energy to our collective consciousness, but your Personal Month number tells you how to make the most of that mystical energy.

Before calculating your Personal Month number, youâ€™ll need to determine your Personal Year numberâ€”your birth date, birth month, and the current year. Donâ€™t forget to reduce the result to a single digit!

Once youâ€™ve got your Personal Year number, simply add the current month to determine your Personal Month number.

For example, If your Personal Year number is 9, you would add that to the digit of the number that corresponds to the current month, so 1 for January. These month numbers are fixed.

• 9 + 1 = 10
• 1 + 0 = 1

So, if your Personal Year number is 9, your Personal Month number would be 1 for January!
