With 2018 in our rear-view mirror, our eyes are focused on the year ahead. And while New Year's resolutions may or may not be your thing, numerology says that we can count on the stars to help us in some of our efforts this year.
In numerology, the numbers in every calendar year add up to make a single-digit universal number. That number is considered the "universal year number" because it is an energetic shift that is said to be felt by all for the duration of that calendar year. For example, this year is 2019, so to figure out the universal year number, you’d add 2+0+1+9=12, and then add the sum again to get a single number: 1+2=3.
2019, as a universal three year, holds lots of potential for personal advancement. The number three is considered sacred in many schools of thought. If you think about it, there’s the idea of the holy trinity, the earth is the third planet from the sun, and we often think that bad and good things happen in three’s. In numerology, the number three also represents the union of mind, body, and soul.
The difficult side of the universal year three is that in order to achieve this harmony, this year encourages us to examine the things which stand in the way of authentic self-expression. We will likely be forced to answer tough questions about whether or not we’re being totally honest with ourselves and others in all situations. Where can we be better at communicating how we feel (our "truth"), especially when emotions are loud and intense? Where are we being untrue to ourselves in our lives and relationships? This could lead to some rocky interactions as well as some difficult realizations, but these shifts are meant to illuminate things which we need to address in order to live our freest, most abundant lives.
We might think of the universal three number as representing our inner-child: free, uninhibited, joyful, optimistic, yearning to connect with others on the playground of life. Though the year could start off turbulent as we become aware of what stands in our way. Overall, the universal three number represents harmony, both in our inner world and our outer world. During this year, harmony will be achieved through creative expression, as people will be better able to connect with themselves and their inner sources of creativity and share them with the world. This self-expression brings people closer together. As we show up as our authentic selves, we give others permission to do the same, creating lasting bonds, friendships, and partnerships in our personal and professional lives. Through light-heartedness, passion, and communication, this year is bound to be a year filled with meaningful moments that will last a lifetime.
