The Numerology of 2021
So here we are. It was a long journey through 2020 with many hardships and trials. Many of us are apprehensive to what will come this year after living through the previous one and are not quite sure what to expect. There are many methods of divination that can lend some wisdom as to what is coming, but for the purpose of giving everyone a general message instead of an individual one, I am going to execute some simple numerology combined with tarot to offer a message of what’s to come.
Numerology uses the numbers 1-9 and literally any number can be broken down into one of these values. For example, 101,245 would turn into 1+0+1+2+4+5 which equals 13. This would become 1+3 which would equal 4 and give you your meaning. The year 2020 is also a 4 resulting from 2+0+2+0. So let’s take a look at what a four would mean.
The number 4 carries with it melancholy and outbursts of violence. It carries with it the message of performing lots of work for little reward. It is an unlucky number that carries with it a dull, lifeless existence. Finally, Misery and defeat are associated with the number 4. After the previous year, we can all plainly see that this description clearly fits 2020 in its entirety.
Switching over to the tarot can lend how 2020 was also full of social justice and people speaking for what’s right. The number 4 in the RWS deck that many people use is The Emperor. The Emperor shows that people must take a stand and rely upon their own power. All activity should be motivated by a need to take action. Circumstances require people to be protective of themselves and the ones around them. An expression of force combined with love is required.
Knowing all of this really lends a window into the immediate past that we have all experienced. The question now is, what comes next? What are we to expect in the immediate future? Turning back to numerology allows us to see that where 2020’s numerological value was a 4, 2021’s value is a 5.
The year as a 5 brings adventure, the avoidance of responsibility, sexual enjoyment, and the bringing together of the masculine and feminine. This bringing together is physically but also metaphysically. Additionally the year is going to bring feelings of freedom and being released from the binds of the previous year. You’re going to want to run free and not feel tied down. 5 is the number of the senses and in this, everyone is going to want to enjoy every single sense that they can. In short, everyone is going to want to go wild. To release all the pent up energy that has been stored of the last year. The thing to be mindful of is to not overindulge. This can lead down dark roads and not make the coming year a bright new path. The number 5 is the connection of the gods, man, and nature. It is the pentagram that represents the connection of all things, along with man. Take to the forests this year. Have an adventure. Just be mindful while doing so that you are making positive decisions for yourself.
The number 5 in the tarot is The Hierophant. The Hierophant shows the need to make change. There are patterns that have been acquired over the last year that do not serve us and this is the time to get rid of those. This year requires an indulgence in religion and philosophy. This will be of great assistance to having a fresh and positive start to the year.
So this is what to expect for the following year. It would seem pretty obvious that after living in the depressing solitude of 2020, we all want to break free and experience the things we felt we were missing out on over the last year. Protect yourself and those around you, while executing moderation so that you can move forward from the darkness and towards the sun.
