To determine your personal year for 1017, you add your month of birth and your day of birth and the universal year 2017. For example October 3 would be 1+0+3+2+0+1+7=14=1+4+5 personal year. Or March 11 would be 3+1+1+2+0+1+7=15=1=5=6 personal year.

1 Personal Year-Before this year is over you will most likely find yourself seeking to better understand your true inner identity and purpose in the cosmos. This year offers you an increased possibility for connecting more completely to your eternal atom (the divine spark) within. Life opportunities of significant growth are presented to you. You are introduced to influential personalities and souls with a similar vision of making a better world. It is becoming easier for you to see through the false illusions and the guise of those who would mislead and redirect the population from knowing the eternal truths of our evolution.

You connect now with other creative and articulate souls whose enthusiasm and openness are a genuine expression of light amid a darkened planet.

There will be an opportunity now to meet someone who can assist you in getting a better grip on pursuing your true life purpose. You are strong now in a time when pessimism and despair haunt the collective social consciousness.

You recognize the misuse of resources and exploitation of industries which add poisons and toxins unnecessarily to our earth, air and water. This can be a year when you actually see positive changes starting to take place. AND, you could well be part of a movement to help bring these changes about. You are willing to open the door to a range of expanded experiences of heart and soul. This may lead you to meet new people who take you for a ride of your life through a wide spectrum of experiences. You are introduced to alternative lifestyles that nurture your growing spiritual needs. All of these activities lead you to a new living environment that supports your lighter side while dealing directly with the darker issues that surround you.

You will find that flexibility and adaptability might be your best friends during this cycle. Some old addictive patterns can come to your attention for further release.

This can be an excellent time for growth from illusion into illumination of the pure form. You find yourself among a new circle of compatible souls and associates who are traveling toward the same vista.
5 Personal Year-Perhaps you have not had much good luck in your previous love life. Perhaps you have been searching for a compatible spiritual mate.

Your mind will be considerably expanded by the end of the year as a result of all of these galactic and human discoveries.
7 Personal Year-As a result of long term mental planning and the development of your leadership skills you may very well find yourself thrust into a position of influence and authority before this year is over.

You learn to trust your inner authority and reflect your strength in the application of outer authority. You make timely and appropriate decisions that may be contrary to popular convention and status quo social thinking.

During this year you will called upon to trust intuitive handling of money and financial decisions.

Your frustration with the futility of the external legal system leads you to search for more permanent universal laws of living.
8 Personal Year-You may be driven to make some major shifts in your basic belief system before this year is over.

You may want to act out some of your inner stress by performing on stage or in a physical activity that lets your be aggressive with restraints. Your intuitive guidance leads you to the right situation and your innate talent comes out at the right time. Meditative practices and inner searching results in huge leaps of consciousness and cosmic confirmation..
9 Personal Year-This is a year that dreams, visions and aspirations of the highest order come into further manifestation. Perhaps you have been flirting with a weird notion of trying something that others consider unconventional, and perhaps impractical. Perhaps the prevailing opinion had been that it was simply too weird to work. Perhaps the times have changed enough that it could work now. There is a little truth in the perception of both you and those who doubt your ideas. You may have to make some adjustments to your vision in order to get the public support and recognition that you will receive.

Author's Bio: 

Lynn Buess MA, EdS brings a very unique background to his fifty plus years study and practice of numerology, healing and wellness innovator. During his earlier years he studied multiple theories of esoteric and metaphysical subjects including eastern religion and philosophies, reincarnation, astrology, and yogism to mention a few. His academic years in pursuit of three degrees in Psychology took him into humanistic psychology, transpersonal psychology and parapsychology studies as well. He is the only numerologist with two accredited post graduate degrees focused upon numerology and symbolism.
This academic experience, along with personal studies and mystical events and glimpse into cosmic consciousness, has given him an extraordinary perspective into the understanding of human psychology and experience. As a one time practicing psychotherapist and alternative wellness practitioner, he applied the art of multiple healing modalities in seeking to practice the most efficient techniques of healing and well being.
Lynn’s experience of practice in numerous nationalities adds to his scope of human nature and depth of insight into generations of family dysfunction and growth. Having come from a family of alcoholism and other toxic patterns he was eventually introduced to the issues of Adult Children of Alcoholism and the multiple dysfunctions of alcohol, drugs, sexual and codependent behavior. Much of his practice dealt with these common social behavior patterns.
Lynn served as a military intelligence special agent during his early adulthood. His experience conducting thousands of background investigations and performing the duties of security and counter espionage taught him to recognize many hidden irregularities and deceptive practices used by institutions and people in the position to misuse and abuse power. Having this professional investigative background enables him to identify issues that are frequently unrecognized or ignored by members of the general public.
This unique and varied cornucopia of internal mystical experiences and external life circumstances is reflected in the vastly expanded viewpoint he brings to the field of numerology and his wellness professionalism. Lynn is able to examine numerical cycles and deftly apply then in analyzing individual intervals of life circumstance, or national and international events taking place in the world around us.
