As we get ready to start the new year, I thought it would be good to see what 2020 has in store for us according to numerology. First we will look at 2020 in general and then we will move to how to calculate your personal year and what you might expect this year.
2020 In General
I am following the Western practice of numerology. In numerology you take a number, add it together until you get to its simplest expression, 1 through 9. For 2020 the steps are:
Step 1 - Add together 2020 2 + 0 + 2 + 0 = 4
Step 2 - Reduce to a single number if 2 digits
That means that 2020 is a 4 year. This is a year of building and planning. This year for you is all about building a solid foundation for your future. Whatever projects you have started, this year is the year to do what you need to make sure they are stable and have a clear path going forward. This means that this year is likely to be about a lot of hard work and effort so that you can enjoy the future. This doesn't mean just materialistic stability like finances. It's also important to make sure you have a solid foundation with your health and emotional well-being. Concentrating on building and shoring up all of these things now will pay off going forward. That's some of what everyone might expect for 2020.
Your 2020 Personal Year
Now let's look at your personal 2020. To calculate this number you will need your birth month and day. Here are the steps:
Step 1 - Add your birth month, day and 2020 together. So for March 5 you would add
3 + 5 + 2 + 0 + 2 + 0 = 12
Step 2 - Reduce to a single number 1+ 2 = 3
To get some information about your personal year look for your number below. There are some special numbers in numerology called master numbers, specifically 11, 22 and 33. If after Step 1 you end up with any of those numbers, then see the reference book listed at the end of the blog. You can still get the basics by following through to Step 2 and ending up with a 2, 4 or 6. T
1 - This is a year of new beginnings, action and opportunity. It's all about fresh starts. Where do you want to go? Who do you want to be? What do you want to accomplish? Spend some time figuring this out and start on your path to achieving your desires. This year isn't specifically about completing them, but about finding and starting new opportunities.
2 - Relationships, emotions and balance are what is important in a 2 year. The most important thing in a 2 year is to learn about yourself. Practice self-love by making time to nurture and care for your mind, body and soul. Strengthening yourself will help you to deal with relationship concerns that may pop up this year whether it is with family, friends or colleagues. This year will be about clearing up those relationships. You may find yourself a bit overwhelmed by all of the sensory input coming at you this year which is why having patience and practicing self-love is so important.
3 - The 3 year is about communication and expression. The energy of a 3 year can be a bit scattered and emotional, but it is a good time for creativity as well. This is a good year to speak your truth honestly and openly. There needs to be time for relaxation and the emotions might get intense sometimes. Organization and discipline are important as is finishing up projects.
4 - This is a year of building and planning. This year for you is all about building a solid foundation for your future. Whatever projects you have started, this year is the year to do what you need to make sure they are stable and have a clear path going forward. This means that this year is likely to be about a lot of hard work and effort so that you can enjoy the future. This doesn't mean just materialistic stability like finances. It's also important to make sure you have a solid foundation with your health and emotional well-being. Concentrating on building and shoring up all of these things now will pay off going forward.
5 - This is the middle year and is all about change and movement. It means that the year will be very busy with lots of action and forward movement. All the things you have set in motion are ready to move forward. With all of this action going on, don't forget to be flexible. Go with the flow and don't fight the current as there is so much going on it is easy to get swept away. That means it will require some discipline on your part. There is still time in the year for exciting adventures like traveling somewhere fun. Enjoy.
6 - After the action of year 5, year 6 is all about the domestic life - love, family and responsibility. Your loved ones and family will need your attention more this year and you will have to work on your work and life balance. If you are single, this can be a good year to find a partner. If you are a healer or in a service based field, focus on being of service and many opportunities will come your way. Don't forget to focus on your responsibility to yourself and your health this year.
7 - This year is a bit quieter and is about going inward and focusing on introspection and spiritual growth. Make a point of spending time alone and focusing on questions such as who am I, what is my purpose and how is my life going? Research is big this year. You may find yourself spending time reading books or taking classes to expand your horizons and knowledge. Think of this year as building the spiritual foundation of your life path.
8 - The 8 year concentrates on finances, career and personal power and they will all figure prominently in your year. This is the time to concentrate on finances and career as it is powerful year to manifest in these areas. Personal power is very important as well. It is time to take back your power if you have given it away to others simply by not standing up for yourself. This is also the year of karma and learning major lessons. Pay attention to significant people that cross your path.
9 - A 9 year is about completion, endings and transformation. This is the year when all that you have worked on and all that has been building the previous 8 years comes to completion. You may find there are things that you need to let go of as they have come to their natural conclusion. It can be an emotional year. Compassion and forgiveness are key. This will be the year to tie up any loose strings to begin a whole new cycle next year. You may find yourself called to be of service to your greater community.
