The way to calculate the year's lessons is simple and done by your birthday numbers, such as day, month, and year (actual year). Lessons of the year follow us through life, and we can create a map to see and learn from what is essential for each year. They tend to karma with them; it’s like what you do each year will reflect on the next time you’re in that same number. A lesson of the year can give a clue to what that particular year means to you. Maybe the last time you had that lesson, you did not avoid the influence, and you will not notice anything of it this time or just a little bit to strengthen your new pattern. The lessons usually come in nine years’ periods, and if you calculate them from 0 years to about 85 years of age, you can recognize a pattern, which lesson is the most frequently that is your biggest lesson. When you have calculated the numbers, and got your lesson for the actual year, place that card in front of you, study it and think about what it will teach you for the coming year, also look to what it symbolizes to you. Write it down and use it as guidance over the year, and then you can concisely work with that aspect over the year. Here's the way to calculate your lesson. If I want to know my lesson for the year 1992 and I'm born on the 19th of December, then I will write it this way: 19 12 +1992 2023 = 2 + 0 + 2 + 3 = 7 Then I know that the number 7, the card “The Chariot,” is my lesson, and I can study what it means to me. A lesson shows on the energy that controls the year, you calculate this by numerology, and then you can look at each year from your birth and ahead to see what you need most to learn. The lesson that frequently comes back is the most important, and if you start to look at the years that this lesson has activated, you can see a pattern and learn even more in the future. You can now read my interpretation of every card lesson and its unique influence. The lesson doesn’t control your life but is a key to the influences at each year.
