As we welcome 2020, we feel that the energy shift that encourages us to realign our goals for the upcoming 12 months.

In Numerology, every calendar year is associated with a Universal Year number. A Universal Year number is a single-digit number from one to nine that is representative of opportunities, feelings, and challenges that we may encounter within the next 12 months.

2020 is a Universal Year 4.

But before we dive into its energies, let’s discuss first how the Universal Year is calculated.

Add each digit of the number in the calendar year (for double digits, break it down to a single number by adding each digit).

For example:

2 + 0 + 2 + 0 = 4

For numbers 11, 22, 33 you leave them as they are because these are Master Numbers.

The Universal Year 4 means hard work and structure. 💪🏻 It is the embodiment of discipline, stability, and patience. Therefore, it brings in a more masculine nature of a take-charge attitude.

2020 challenges us to go the distance and strike while the iron is hot.♨️ It motivates us to get more serious about what we want to achieve.

For many, the energy of this year will put a strong emphasis on home buying🏠, family planning👨‍👩‍👦, and climbing up the career ladder. 🧗🏻‍♀️

So, are you ready to do it?

Right now, you’re probably full of enthusiasm for the upcoming months ahead. We all have it. But what challenges us the most is to maintain the motivation and the drive to stick to our goals.

What I encourage you to do is to learn how you can use the energies of 2020 to your advantage. So every time you get sucked into bouts of laziness, you know how to get back in the game.

The energy of 2020 will not change but it will strongly be influenced by your thoughts, emotions, and actions. Therefore, you need to play it right.

Start Healthy Habits

In Numerology, the number four is also representative of health, and in a Universal Year, it puts more attention to healthy habits. You also better watch out for overwork and burnout because the number 4 tends to carry these energies.

That’s why you need to implement healthy habits. Give yourself a break every once in a while because you need it. This year is the perfect time for a work-life balance.

Commit to a healthy lifestyle and as much as you want to get a lot of things done, learn when to stop and to simply breathe.

Slow Down

Similar to giving yourself a break, this year’s Universal Number energies support steady action. This means that you don’t have to be all over the place and getting a lot of things done.

Rushing from one thing to another will not cut it this year as well as cutting corners. Slowly but surely wins the game this year. Look at every angle before you leap and who cares how long you stay in the process? As long as you’re thorough and it’s not rushed, you’ll be able to achieve the success that you want.

Remember, you’re not in a race. You’ll get to where you want to be — so slow down. There’s no point in rushing anything.

Be More Patient

Expect delays and limitations this Universal year 4. Something that kicks off so beautifully can quickly disintegrate. And what you must remember here is that things like that happen. It’s normal. Don’t beat yourself up over it.

Things like this is when you’ll need more patience. And I’m telling you, there will be a fair share of limitations and delays this year.

To rise above it, simply be proactive and exert more effort. If one thing doesn’t work, move onto another one. Patience and determination will take you to what you want to achieve in 2020.

Be Open

Universal Year 4 can tie us down to the familiar. Change is inevitable yet it’s the hard pill to swallow especially if it’s a kind of change that we don’t really want to happen. Be mindful of it this year.

When you feel like you need to move and change things around but a part of you clings to what you’re used to, it’s a sign to stay open. Don’t let the past tie you down.

When change calls, it’s always a good idea to go to it. It’s calling you that change needs to happen in your life right now and you must answer it. Putting it off may put you in misery in the long run.

This year is just getting started, how do you want to kick it off? Play by the universal rules and you’ll surely get to wherever you want to be by year’s end.
