This 60-Second Numerology Quiz Will Predict What October Has In Store For You

In Western numerology — a practice created by Greek mystic and mathematician Pythagoras over 2,500 years ago — everyone has a numerology chart made up of seven "Personality Numbers" that relate to one's personality and five "Forecasting Numbers" that relate to one's future potential.

The practice operates on the idea that our lives are cyclical, and each cycle is a unique opportunity for personal growth and discovery. Some cycles are more favorable than others, so it pays to know which cycle you're in so you're fully prepared for the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead.

You can tap into this insight by calculating your numerology forecast with your "Personal Year Number." This number, composed of the month and day of your birth date, indicates the lessons, opportunities, and experiences you'll encounter during an upcoming year.

Take this 60-second quiz to calculate your Personal Year Number for 2016 and receive your numerology forecast for October.

Step 1: Add the month and day of your birth date to 2016. Be sure to write the full year (i.e., 2016 rather than just 16).

Step 2: Keep adding any double-digit numbers together until you get a single-digit Personal Year Number between 1 and 9.

Let's use the birth date September 29 (9/29) as an example.

9+2+9+2+0+1+6 = 29

2+9 = 11

1+1 = 2 Personal Year Number

Step 3: Now, locate your Personal Year Number below to discover your numerology forecast for October 2016. But keep in mind, there are five forecasting numbers in your numerology chart, so for greater accuracy, all the other numbers must also be taken into consideration.
