Seven-year cycles of human life
Man is a living rational social being, a subject of social historical activity and culture. The distinctive features of a person, determining his uniqueness on the planet Earth, are his consciousness, ability to think and ability to make free choice, to take responsibility for actions, the presence of moral judgments. Describing a person, they note his biological inability, the lack of specialization of his organs for any particular simple animal existence, the ability to produce tools, fire, and use them, speechless, plasticity of behavior. No other creature is known that has higher emotions, traditions, the ability to think, argue, deny, count, plan, knows about its mortality, loves in the true sense of the word, has a sense of humor, implements its designs, reproduces the existing one and creates what something new. A person studies and changes both the surrounding world and himself, develops a culture and creates his own history. The essence of man, his origin and purpose, his place are the main issues of philosophy, religion, science and art.
Age periodization is the periodization of a person’s development from birth to death, the determination of the age limits of stages in a person’s life, the age-related stratification system adopted in society. Each seven-year cycle ends with a certain crisis, a turning point, a situation that will necessarily require certain costs ...
Human life is cyclical and it is associated with the number seven. Each seven-year cycle ends with a certain crisis, a turning point, a situation that will necessarily require certain costs: physical, intellectual, emotional, and others. This tipping point is a guide to the next cycle. Throughout his life, a person goes through a certain number of seven-year cycles, which differ in their characteristics.
From 0 to 7 years
Strong bond with mother. Horizontal knowledge of the world. Creating feelings. Mother’s smell, mother’s milk, mother’s voice, mother’s warmth, mother’s kisses are the first sensations. The period, as a rule, ends with the hatching from the protective cocoon of maternal love and the discovery of a more or less cold rest of the world.
From 7 to 14 years
Strong bond with father. Vertical knowledge of the world. Creation of personality. The father becomes a new exclusive partner, an ally in the discovery of the world outside the family cocoon. Father expands the protective family cocoon. Father becomes a guide. Mother was loved, father should be adored.
From 14 to 21 years
Revolt against society. Cognition of matter. Creation of intelligence. This is a teenage crisis. There is a desire to change the world and destroy existing structures. Young people attack the family cocoon, then the society as a whole. A teenager is seduced by everything that “revolts” - loud music, romantic relationships, desire for independence, flight, communication with marginal groups of youth, anarchist values, systematic denial of old values. The period ends with an exit from the family cocoon.
From 21 to 28 years
Entry into society. Stabilization after a riot. Having failed to destroy the world, they integrate into it, wanting to be better first than the previous generation. Searches for more interesting work than their parents. The search for a more interesting place of life than the parents. Trying to create a happier couple than the parents. Choosing a partner and creating a hearth. Creating your own cocoon. The period usually ends in marriage.
From that moment on, the man fulfilled his mission and ended the first defensive cocoon.
The end of the first square 4x7 years
After the first square, culminating in the creation of his own cocoon, a person enters the second series of seven-year cycles.
28-35 years old
The creation of the hearth. After the marriage, the apartment, the car, the children appear. Values are accumulated inside the cocoon. But if the first four cycles were not successful, the hearth collapses. If the relationship with the mother was not lived properly, she would annoy her daughter-in-law. If with the father too, he will begin to interfere in the affairs of the young couple. If a riot against society has not been experienced, there is a risk of conflict at work. 35 years old is the age at which a poorly mature cocoon often explodes. Then there is a divorce, dismissal, depression, psychosomatic diseases. Then the first coco should be dropped and ...
It all starts from scratch. After the crisis, a person enriched with previous experience and mistakes reconstructs the second cocoon. It is necessary to reconsider the relationship to the mother, family, father, maturity. This is the period when divorced men have mistresses, and divorced women have lovers. They are trying to perceive what they expect, not from marriage, but from the opposite sex.
Relationships with society should also be reviewed. From now on, work is chosen not from the point of view of its safety, but by how interesting it is, or according to the free time it leaves. After the destruction of the first cocoon, a person always wants to create a second one as quickly as possible. New marriage, new job, new relationship. If getting rid of parasitic elements has passed safely, a person should be able to restore an improved cocoon, not like, but an improved one. If he does not understand past mistakes, he will restore the exact same shell and come to exactly the same defeats. This is what is called "running in a circle." From now on, all cycles will only be a repetition of the same mistakes.
42-49 years old
Conquest of society. As soon as the second, improved cocoon is restored, a person can know the fullness of life in marriage, family, work, own development. This victory leads to two new types of behavior.
If a person is interested in signs of material well-being: more money, more comfort, more children, more mistresses or lovers, more power, he constantly increases and enriches his new improved cocoon.
If a person goes to the conquest of new territories, namely spiritual, then the true creation of his personality begins. By all logic, this period should end with a crisis of self-awareness, an existential issue. Why am I here, why do I live, what should I do to make life acquire meaning beyond material wealth?
Spiritual revolution. If a person succeeds in creating or recreating his cocoon and being realized in family and work, he naturally feels the desire to acquire wisdom. Henceforth begins the last adventure, the spiritual revolution. The search for spirituality, if conducted honestly, without falling into the lightness of group spirit or ready-made ideas, will never be completed. They will take the rest of their lives.
The end of the second square 4x7 years
NB 1: Further development continues in a spiral. Every seven years, a person rises by one turn and again goes through the same questions: relationship with his mother and father, attitude to rebellion against society and the family.
NB 2: Sometimes some people purposely fail in family relationships or at work in order to be forced to start all the cycles over again. In this way, they are trying to avoid or push back the moment when they will have to go to the spiritual phase, because they are afraid to face themselves face to face.
We analyze each year in the seven-year cycle
Each year in the seven-year cycle passes under the sign of a certain celestial body, which has its unique influence on human life. The calendar year, in this situation, is a relative concept, for each individual person, the year may be slightly longer or slightly shorter, but you still have the opportunity to track which cycle you are in now. After seven years, the cycle begins anew.
The first year of the cycle is influenced by Mars.
Mars brings physical stamina, strength for physical development. Mars also supports health, gives a chance to cure ailments. But in every way contributing to the physical, Mars can dull the intellectual. Also this year may increase the aggressiveness, fighting qualities, which will lead to rash actions, will lead to the impossibility of making compromises.
The second year of the seven-year cycle is influenced by Saturn.
The person cools down, becomes less aggressive. It is time to gain experience, but this does not go off painlessly, since we still get experience more often from our mistakes. These mistakes are not so terrible, and do not lead to an extraordinary state of affairs, since Saturn not only provides an opportunity to gain experience, but gives strength for analysis and reflection.
The third year of the cycle is influenced by Mercury.
This year the main place is occupied by the intellect. Having experience of past years, people successfully learn how to use them. The training is fruitful and active, giving the opportunity to develop not only intellectually, but also to increase enterprise and communication skills. But, unfortunately, it happens that communication with people is mercantile in nature, thereby causing damage to friendly and family relationships.
The fourth year of the cycle is under the influence of the sun.
This is a time for rethinking, the formation of individuality, which will remain with a person until the end of this seven-year period. There is a change in the attitude towards affairs, people, an understanding comes about what mistakes have been made in the past. The person begins to realize that for him it is really valuable, what kind of people are important in his environment. There are attempts to realize their place in the world.
The fifth year of the cycle is influenced by Jupiter.
This is the period when a person grows psychologically, even not growing, but rather growing up. The need for physical activity is reduced, but the mental remains on top. Of the dangers of the year under the sign of Jupiter, it is worth noting the fact that a person is subject to errors of a philosophical nature, capable of unexpected, but sometimes false conclusions.
Sixth year passes under the influence of the moon
Feeling a certain severity of the intellectual experience of past years, a person strives to go into the field of sensory perception of the world. A person answers questions not only, and not so much with the help of intellect, but more often with the help of intuition, he feels the birth of a previously unknown extrasensory beginning.
Seventh year passes under the influence of Venus
Increasing the emotional background leads to increased creativity. This is a favorable time for the realization of oneself in the world of art, as well as for the search for the second half. But an increase in emotionality can also lead to frustration in oneself, in relationships.
