The eighth year of your life brings about some important changes in your personality, both personally and professionally. It’s also an opportunity to solidify the traits you’ve worked hard to cultivate throughout the previous years of your life, so take the time to reflect on these characteristics and make sure you’re ready to face the challenges ahead! Here are some things you can expect as your personal year 8 unfolds, as well as tips on making the most of this significant milestone in your life.
What does a personal year 8 mean?
If you were born in 1938, 1948, 1958, 1968, 1978, 1988, 1998, and 2008 then it’s your personal year 8. A personal year is a period during which certain life events are more likely to occur than others. Each personal year lasts one Chinese lunar cycle—from new moon to new moon—and has a set range of years attached to it (1-9), although some overlap. For example, people born in 1980 also fall into personal years 4 and 7; what happens for you depends on your animal sign as well as which cycle you’re currently in. After reading about each cycle below you can use our chart (see below) to determine your personal years using birth date and animal sign.
What is the 8-year cycle?
The eight-year cycle—also known as the personal year or astrological year—refers to a specific time period in your life that’s marked by a dramatic, unexpected event or circumstance. These periods begin when you’re 28 (your personal age) and repeat every eight years until you turn 56. Each period is known for coinciding with a major life transition such as marriage, divorce, death of a loved one, health crisis, career change, or another important event that has a huge impact on your life. In fact, some call these times turning points. So what should you expect during personal year 8?
What is your personal year number?
You might not know your Chinese birth-year number, but if you were born between 1921 and 2000, there’s a pretty good chance you can figure it out. Birth-year numbers are calculated by adding together your month (which is based on when you were born in relation to a solar calendar) with your day of birth. For example, someone who was born on July 21st will have a personal year of 8 because their month total plus their day total is 10; 1+8=9, which when added together becomes 10.
Personal year 8 in 2022
Entering personal year 8 in 2022 is a pivotal moment for you, as it will undoubtedly force you to take stock of who you are, where you’re going, and what it is that makes your life meaningful. Of course, while others might notice these things about you — since they’re observing from afar — these observations shouldn’t come as a surprise. You have been pondering those very questions since your last birthday! Now’s your chance to figure out how to make all those answers count for something real. While answering these questions requires serious introspection, not much will change on the outside for a few years after entering personal year 8 until 2022.
Personal year 8 love
The personal love cycle between 7/2015 – 6/2016 can be a bit tough for those involved, or people who are directly connected. If you’re in a relationship, you’ll notice a trend. You may feel like your partner’s changed significantly, or you’ve been dating someone for years and it seems like they’re no longer listening. If you’re single during personal year 8 love, don’t expect many open doors when it comes to finding love with an old flame — they probably aren’t interested in rekindling any relationship that has burned out over time. Personal Year 8 is definitely a hit-or-miss kind of year if it comes to love affairs. Best idea?
Personal year 8 relationships
Although personal year 8 relationships can be successful, they are often a time when people experience major changes in their social circles. This is due to how events relating to your career or public persona may play out during personal year 8. You may find yourself rebuilding relationships after something ends or creating new bonds with different groups as you build your empire or juggle various projects at work. On one hand, it’s important that you take care of any unfinished business from personal years 4 and 7, but on another, it’s equally important that you don’t neglect new opportunities. Personal year 8 relationships should be about building a foundation for where you want your life to go in personal years 9 and 10.
Personal year 8 is a significant time for many people. If you’re single, you may be preparing to tie the knot with your long-term partner, or even just re-committing yourself to your current relationship. If you’re married, it can be an exciting time as you look forward to growing your family together. This year is also important for those who have lost loved ones or want a change in their relationships with friends and family. Personal year 8 is not only about love; it’s also about commitment and building new beginnings with those who matter most in our lives.
