Epicycle: In numerology each year of your life is part of an evolving pattern that can be described as a nine year cycle or Epicycle. These cycles begin at your birth and progress through nine steps that complete an Epicycle and begin again. Some numerologists use the Master Numbers here also.
Essence Cycle: The Essence Cycle can last from one to nine years, and is based on the combination of Transits that are in place during any given year. (See also Transits.)

Karmic Lesson number: A Karmic Lesson number is a number that is not represented anywhere in the full name as it was given at birth. A name may reveal more than one Karmic Lesson number.
Life Path number: The Life Path number is the most important number in the chart and is based on the sum of all the digits in the date of birth. There are two ways to figure the Life path number. One way adds all the numbers together and produces a single digit number. The second way arrives at the same single digit result as the first, but can have a different double digit number as the second method reduces the MONTH + the DAY digits as a separate reduced digit, and then the YEAR digit is added and further reduced to a digit. If on either of these methods a Master Number is the result of a double digit, this is considered as well as the final single digit.
Main Challenge: The Main Challenge is the difference between the numbers that represent the First and Second Challenge.
Master numbers: The Master Numbers are the numbers 11, 22, and, in rare cases, the number 33. (Note: Some numerologists believe that the numbers 44, 55, 66, 77, 88, and 99 are also Master Numbers. However, the Master Numbers 11, 22, and 33 form a triangle that represents potential mastery. The number 33 in the top depicts enlightenment. The numbers 44 and up have no place in this triangle, and should be reduced to single digits).
