Whether or not you make New Year’s resolutions, most of us intuitively feel a profound energy shift whenever the calendar turns. In Numerology, that transition is a big deal: It marks the passage into a new Universal Year.

This affects the collective atmosphere of the world for a 12-month period! You can think of the Universal Year as the state or country you’re driving through on your yearly “road trip,” and each number comes with its own unique resonance.

How to Calculate the Universal Year:

In Numerology, each calendar year adds up to a single-digit number, which holds a unique energetic influence and imprint. It’s called the Universal Year. This means that everyone on the planet will experience the energy of a particular number during the entire year, from January 1 until December 31.

Add the individual numbers of the current year together, like this:

2021 = 2 + 0 + 2 + 1 = 5. That’s why 2021 is a 5 Universal Year.

What Is the 5 Universal Year All About?

In Numerology, the number 5 represents the energy of instability. Change is its key mandate. The emphasis during a 5 Universal Year is pushing boundaries, exploration and new ideas—embarked upon with an adventurous and fearless spirit.

To make the most of a 5 Universal Year, expect (and embrace) the unexpected!

Juggling freedom and responsibility: The 5 Year challenge

The Universal 5 vibe is volatile, yet exciting—and that should come as no surprise given the turbulent state of our world. But unlike the heavy and hardworking 4 energy of 2020 (more on that in a minute), a 5 Universal Year invites us to explore the true meaning of freedom.

How do we collectively secure a sense of sovereignty while also handling our mundane responsibilities? In 2021, we’ll all have to strike that balance.

For example, we can’t have financial freedom unless we earn money, invest wisely and plan effectively. Taking this responsible route earns us the financial resources to live on our own terms—a strong 5 desire.

Some people say that good health is freedom. We can’t continuously indulge in excessive behaviors if we also want to experience physical strength and mobility. How can we bring discipline to our diets and routines in order to experience a vibrant mind, body and spirit? 

Under the Numerology of 2021, outmoded lifestyles and beliefs will dramatically shift. While there will be continued uncertainty, the 5 Universal Year will also bring progress and impactful change.

Unlike last year, rocking the boat and making waves are essential now. No more clinging to the past. Welcome the vivacious energy of a new era—as the 5 brings our passion alive!
