### How to Calculate Your Pinnacle Cycle Numbers

The pinnacle numbers are a series of 4 numbers that depict the seasons of your life - the changes and growth patterns you go through on your journey. They lend insight into your experiences and how those experiences affect you.

Start off by reducing the Month, Day, Year in that order. Jan 18, 1969 would reduce to 1 (January), 9 (1 + 8 = 9), (1+9+6+9=25 reduce again 7) So our numbers are 1, 9, and 7 respectively. Your first pinnacle will be the sum of the month and day - so for our example 1 + 9 = 10/ reduce to 1.
The Second Pinnacle is the sum of the day of birth and year of birth - so for our example 9 and 7 = 16/reduce to 7.
The Third Pinnacle is the sum of the first 2 so in our example 1 + 7 = 8
The Fourth Pinnacle is the sume of the month and year so in our example January 1 + 7 = 8
But wait there's more! ;) ... (this is the only somewhat complex number to figure out so hang in there) To figure out when your pinnacles begin and end you have to subtract your life path number from 36. So my life path number is 7 - my first pinnacle would last from birth to age 29. Add 9 years for every other Pinnacle. So for me the 2nd pinnacle would last until the age of 38, the 3rd until the age of 47 and the fourth for the remainder of my days...
