The ultimate expression of the 8 Universal Year is sheer empowerment, manifestation and infinite abundance.
By Felicia Bender, Numerologist
This article is partially excerpted from The AstroTwins’ 2024 Horoscope. The annual book provides a thorough astrological forecast for all of 2024, including the 8 Universal Year.
In numerology, each calendar year adds up to a single-digit number, which holds a unique energetic influence and imprint. We all feel this energy, and it’s called the Universal Year. During this 12-month period, everyone on the planet experiences the energy of a particular number, from January 1 until December 31.
The 8 Universal Year is an “accelerator”
The 8 Universal year is a time to make intentional moves. With a focus on the material aspects of life, we can take direct and powerful leaps forward to manifest our dreams—and get paid doing it.
Eight is the ultimate “power number” representing abundance on the highest level. Get ready for a year of power plays with a spotlight on money, control and authority.
The 8 Universal Year brings us closer to completing a 9-year cycle
We move into action in 2024 as we enter a three-year push time of global transition and transformation. This cycle moves us from the 8 Universal Year to the grand finale of a complete, nine-year cycle in 2025, which is a 9 Universal year (2025). We begin anew with a global reset in 2026, which is a 1 Universal Year.
How to harness the energy of the 8 Universal Year
Fierce determination will be required as we enter this three-year global shift. Old systems may crumble while new ones emerge. An 8 Universal Year can feel hectic and daunting at times. Remind yourself often that these changes are necessary in order to pave the way for progress.
To make the most of the 8 Universal year:
Get clear and serious. An 8 Universal Year brings tons of opportunities to expand and reach new heights. You can also expect to be driven way out of your comfort zone, forced to step up or get stepped on!
Put your money where your mouth is. Take your goals seriously in the 8 Universal Year. Your “money moves” could pay off handsomely with 2024’s intense vibration of empowerment and manifestation.
Add value. In 2024, you might feel particularly compelled to align more directly with your authentic calling in life.
Celebrate divine feminine power. The 8 in numerology is also associated with divine feminine power. 2024 is an intensely powerful year demanding that we all step into the world with our eyes and hearts wide open.
Monetize and invest. Our material resources are governed by the number 8 and this Universal Year supports massive undertakings in how and what we monetize.
Prepare for a global economic shift. In an 8 Universal Year, existing systems, structures, and concepts soar to new levels of success or they may disintegrate while new ones take over.
Take control and be your own authority. We reap what we’ve sown in an 8 Universal Year. The more you can step into your own authority in a way that exerts power versus force, the more abundance you’ll be open to receiving.
Brace for power struggles. It will be difficult for authoritarians to operate under a cloak of invisibility. During the 8 Universal Year, breeches of trust from leadership surface.
Share your wealth. Share your wealth and stimulate the economy by spending with businesses and people whose values you support. The 8 is the symbol for infinity and it symbolizes constant and consistent flow. The energy of money needs to flow to attract more of it.
