# CALCULATING THE PINNACLE CYCLES.

To find your First Pinnacle, add the numbers of your month and day of birth, arriving at a single-digit number. For example, if you were born on May 15, 1949, your First Pinnacle would be found by adding the 5 (for May) and the 6 (for the fifteenth) to arrive at 11. Master numbers encountered during the Pinnacle calculations are not reduced. Someone born on November 5 would add 11 (for November - a Master number) and the 5 to get 16, which is 7.

To find your Second Pinnacle, add the day you were born to the year of your birth. Using May 15, 1949 again, add the 6 (for the fifteenth day) and the birth year 5 (for 1949) and arrive at another 11.

To find your Third Pinnacle, add the sum of the first and the second Pinnacles - in our example, 11 plus 11 - and arrive at 22. The 22 is a Master number and is therefore not reduced.

To find your Fourth and last Pinnacle, add your month and year of birth. Using the example, add 5 (for May) and 5 (for 1949) to arrive at 10, which reduces to 1.

NOTE: The calculation methods for the Pinnacles are similar to the Challenges, except that we subtract to find the Challenges, and for the Pinnacles we add the birth date units. This must have given some numerologists the idea that the Challenges are cycles covering the same time ranges as the Pinnacles. This is not the case. Challenges are not considered. The influence of the 1st, 2nd, and 4th Challenges weakens or strengthens during the early, middle, and later part of life respectively, while the Main Challenge is in place throughout your life.

The First Pinnacle (in Tom’s case a 1) is shown above the month and day of birth. The Second Pinnacle is a 3 and appears above the day and year of birth. The Third Pinnacle is a 4 and is centered right above the day of birth. The Fourth Pinnacle is a 7 and occupies the top triangle of this star-shaped figure.

The Pinnacles are also found on the bottom row of the wave.

# THE MEANING OF THE PINNACLE CYCLE NUMBERS.

The Pinnacles are four long-term cycles, or periods, on our Life Path. Each Pinnacle represents a particular lesson we are working on. The first Pinnacle usually lasts from birth to between the ages of 30 and 35 (your specific Pinnacle periods are provided below). The middle two Pinnacles each last nine years. The last Pinnacle will stay with you for the remainder of your life.

The Pinnacles are very important. The transition from one Pinnacle to the next is always strongly felt. Your Pinnacles reveal the general conditions and events you will experience during the period. The Pinnacle describes the atmosphere, or the essential challenge you will be faced with.

You can prepare yourself for the times ahead by knowing your approaching Pinnacle number.

The transition from one Pinnacle to the next is usually prepared for approximately 2 years in advance. The latter part of that two year period is particularly strong. You will likely make some life-altering decisions - marriage, job or career change, or any number of major changes in your character.

Perhaps the most strongly felt change - internally as well as externally - is the transition from the first to the second Pinnacle. This change usually takes place in your late 20s or early 30s - the exact date depends on your Life Path number. You begin to feel the impact of this coming change approximately two years prior. This is usually a difficult transition, but once crossed provides a clear sense of direction in one's life. It also gives you a much firmer sense of your identity. It is a gateway to maturity.

There is not a lot of support from others or from family. You must draw from your own strength. You will have to guard against self pity or surrender.

Keep focused on your dreams. This Pinnacle will require an iron will to keep hold of your goals, and also the flexibility to maneuver around difficulties, and bend with the winds of adversity.

This is a period of rapid self-improvement and growth. You will be forced to use every talent and capability you possess. You will need to be resourceful.

You must continually put out effort, but with it comes great reward. Without it, there is no accomplishment nor satisfaction, only a negative attitude toward life.

Be careful not to become too self centered, headstrong or self important. Be strong but flexible. Be open to the counsel of others, but make up your own mind.

The benefit of this Pinnacle number is a strong sense of your individuality and strength. You will know what you are made of. There are many hidden gifts in this period, perhaps the greatest of which is faith.

Your abilities to manage and organize people and institutions are greatly enhanced. You have vision and confidence in the worth of your dreams.

These characteristics provide great opportunity for success and major accomplishments.

### Pinnacle Cycle

This Pinnacle causes you to be extremely sensitive, intuitive, and full of insight. It is a period that requires patience and the development of inner awareness. You are being asked to use gentle power and persuasion to obtain your desired goals. Direct approaches, forceful displays, and confrontations will likely work against you. You will find the most satisfactory roles to be supportive. You are now a gifted advisor, a diplomat and a peacemaker. Your insight into other people's feelings and motivations is so acute that you seem to be able to see right to the core of things. But rather than use these gifts to create differences between people, you must use them to create peace, to mend rifts, to harmonize.

Your challenge during this period is to bring balance to duality in every form, and at every level. You will recognize the value of both sides of an argument and be able to see the middle ground where peace can be made. You can create the atmosphere in which both sides can compromise and work harmoniously. You are the glue that keeps people and important projects together.

The weaknesses you must face and overcome are too much sensitivity. You may be tempted to indulge your feelings, to be too easily hurt. You may lack self-confidence, especially at the beginning of the Pinnacle when your heightened sensitivity and awareness make you conscious of your own shortcomings. You may succumb to fear and hesitation. All of this can lead to emotional turmoil.

You need courage and the willingness to reach out for support.

Your sensitivity will make you acutely appreciative of beauty and harmonious environments. At the same time, you need beauty and harmony around you.

You have an increased appetite for music and the arts in general. You may find that your musical talents coming to the surface. If you do not already play an instrument, give in to any inclination to take one up.

A person in a 2 Pinnacle who uses his or her sensitivity, understanding, and insight is very appreciated by others. You may not fully realize just how much others appreciate and respect you. This may cause you to feel undervalued, or that you are not getting the recognition you deserve.

You appear shy and humble, particularly if this is your first Pinnacle, but inside there is much pride that must be kept in check.

You may want to hide from the tumult of life, or from difficult situations. This may tempt you to color the facts in order to protect harmony. Be careful of this tendency, because it often backfires.

You have an eye for precision and detail. Your taste in all aspects of life is enhanced and you possess a certain class that others admire. If you make the most of these qualities, your appearance is considerably improved, making you both attractive and graceful.

The world depends on those who maintain harmony and balance.
