Calculating Your Life Cycle (Bridge) Number

In numerology, the human life path is actually divided into three major cycles that are divided by 28 years.  When exactly you will be changing through from one life cycle to the next is very many dependents on what your Life Path number is as your life path number is added to 28. Don’t fret about this too much now as the example below explains the calculation more fully!

Early Life Cycle – any time from age 25 to 35 Middle Life Cycle – any time from age 26  to 61Later Life Cycle- from 58 to death.

These major life cycles each can be assigned their own number and interpretation in numerology to give an overview of the major influences that will dominate a life during anyone of these 28-year periods!

This type of calculation is a little more complicated than usual because the time at which you will encounter these changes is all based on calculating your Life Path number. The age at which you make the transit from one cycle to the next is subtly determined by this so your next step is to refer to (orcalculate) your Life Path Number.

The first thing we want to do is figure out the timing of these cycles. Let’s use the celebrity O.J. Simpson as an example.O.J. Simpson was born July 9, 1947.

First we will calculate his Life Path number, which if you will recall is the reduction of the birthday to a single number.

Simpson’s Life path number is 7+9+(1+9+4+7) = 7+9+3 = 21

Like many celebrities his Life Path number is a 3.

Add 28 years to that Life Path Number (3) and you determine the age around which Simpson makes his transition to his next life cycle. In Simpson’s case it is 31.

His Middle Life cycle would span through the next 31 years (28+3) marking his entrance into his later life cycle at age 62.

Now for determining the numbers that rule each of your cycles.

Your Early Cycle is your month of birth. In the example of July 9, 1947 (Simpson’s case), numerologically July is reduced to 7.

Your Mid Life Cycle is your day of birth reduced to a single- digit or until a Master number is encountered. In Simpson’s case the number is 9.

Your Late Life Cycle is your year of birth reduced to a single- digit or until a Master number is encountered. In our example, 1947 reduces to 21. (2+1 =3) Simpson’s late life cycle is a 3.

The years you make your transition from one Life Cycle to the next, are always extremely important and quite often represent significant milestones in your life. As mentioned above, you can determine the year that these transitions will happen by adding your Life Path number to 28 years. Simpson’s first life cycle ends at age 31 (28+3).  His later life cycle will occur another 31 years after that when he turns age 62.

Your First Period Cycle is your month of birth. In the example of October 12, 1936, the 10 for October is reduced to 1.

Please note that if the number adds up to Master number 11 or 22 that you do not reduce them in the last part of the calculation.

Simpson’s early Life Cycle number is 7. This is the mark of a loner and an eccentric who may be somewhat divorced from is emotions. It is also a marker of extreme intelligence, even brilliance. However emotionally, it may have been very difficult for him to relate to other people. Usually sevens tend to live in their own little world. This number suggests that O.J. had a very difficult, even traumatic childhood. Frustration and deprivation may have created a competitive individual who may have never matured emotionally.

After the age of thirty one, Simpson’s middle life cycle was a nine. This is a number that symbolizes massive transformation and abrupt change. Nine symbolizes the long-term resolution of spiritual or physical issues so it is interesting that is court trial that took place at that time came to have such an impact on both the public and race relations.

When he turns 62 in 2009, he enters a later life cycle that is represented by the number 3.  Three marks are period of fame or infamy. It could be that there is another incident that brings Simpson’s behavior to the forefront of public knowledge or it could be simply referring to his controversial reputation will last beyond the grave.
