Numerology is the study of numbers in your life. Because numbers are ancient symbols, each number holds a certain energetic property. With the belief that the Universe is a system made up of numerical equations, numerology is similar to astrology in that it looks at your birthdate, your name and other factors that make up you as an individual.
It can be used to determine aspects like your personality, life path and relationships. Just as it’s useful to have an astrology reading for the year ahead, it’s also useful to understand your personal year number each year.
Every year holds a numerical value and energy which is understood by adding the individual numbers. The year 2021 is calculated to be a Universal 5 year, meaning that everyone will feel the impact of the numerical energy of this year in addition to their own personal year number. We arrive at this Universal number by adding 2+0+2+1= 5. Since we evolve in 9-year cycles then 5 becomes a midpoint of growth.
According to numerologist, Alyssa Ostrander, “the number 5 carries the energy of intelligence, making 2021 a time to open your mind and learn more about what you’re curious about, especially in the areas that give you joy.”
Another numerologist, Felicia Bender says, “In Numerology, the number 5 is the energy of instability. Its point of emphasis is in pushing boundaries, exploration, bringing in new ideas, and engaging an adventurous and fearless spirit.
When we experience the energy of the 5 during a cycle of time, expect the unexpected!
This energy is volatile, yet exciting. It’s all about exploring the true meaning of freedom. How do we collectively secure a sense of sovereignty while also doing what needs to be done in a methodical way in order to make it happen?”
This makes sense as we have entered into a whole new age, the Age of Aquarius. Aquarius is an air element, one of the quintessential changemakers of the zodiac, which is about expansion, humanity and innovation.
So what does 2021 mean for you personally?
Well first you’ll need to calculate your personal year number. You do this by adding your birth day, + birth month + 2021. Ex: June 7 would be 6+7, then add 2021, so it looks like this: 6+7+2+0+2+1=18. Then you break it down into a single digit number by taking the sum, in this example it’s 18, 1+8=9, therefore making 9 your personal year number.
Calculate your personal year number, then read on to see what Alyssa Ostrander predicts 2021 holds for you.
1 Personal Year
Doors will close, but new doors will open in 2021. You’re entering a new 9-year cycle that is meant to help shape your life. The year begins with feelings of unrest, and nothing will remain the same as 2021 unfolds. It’s time to take a look at how you’re living and freshen up your perspective.
You’re ready to move forward and begin being your true self in life. You’re planting seeds now that will sprout as your cycle progresses, helping you to fulfill your dreams.
A 1 Year puts you in front — you’re a pioneer. You’re self-motivated and ready to take action on your own. These urges may come naturally, or it may take your intentional focus and determination to advance your next steps forward.
Life doesn’t always offer a chance like this to begin again and try something new. The unknowns can be intimidating, but your future depends on your actions now! Let go of how life used to be and blaze a new trail forward. 2021 is a year to focus on YOU!
2 Personal Year
After the initiative of the 1 Year you experienced in 2020, the 2 Year is a time to become comfortable with how to receive. The number 2 coexists within you now, and your life reflects its unity of differences through cooperation and patience with others. Your efforts to balance the dualities of life will help to develop more harmonious relationships with yourself and others.
Whatever you do this year, it’s important to do it with tact and diplomacy. Otherwise, you could regret any aggressive actions. The secret is to hold peace in your heart and be the sweetness you desire in your connections with others. It may seem that people are more demanding of your time, but it is good for you to be a supportive influence.
2021 is also a time to develop your intuition and follow your inner guidance. You’re becoming stronger by listening and receiving the wisdom of the universe.
Think about each of the billions of cells that form your body dividing into two in order to grow anew. Similarly, in 2021, you are splitting seeds you planted last year to allow the roots of your dreams to set.
3 Personal Year
The number 3 brings some structure to the duality you experienced in 2020 — it adds an extra ingredient in the form of others that need your help. As you’re growing in this 3 Personal Year, you’re learning how to mediate your energy and increase your creative output.
The 3 Personal Year brings up the strength of your emotions. Keep a journal and use the power of your words to process your feelings.
Some adjustments may be needed if you’re striving to begin something new or you are overwhelmed by your strong feelings. It takes the smooth, balanced humming of both initiative and receptive qualities in life to create the joy you deserve. Life can’t be all about you, nor can it be all about others. There’s a sweet spot of perspective between, though, that offers happiness.
Don’t let petty concerns with others rock your well-being in 2021. Have faith, but don’t push too fast, and everything will smooth out. Share your talents, and there will be much to be happy about in the year ahead.
4 Personal Year
After the creative growth you experienced in the previous year, the 4 Personal Year is more serious. The number 4 is the square box of form that builds your foundation. In 2021, seek to be practical about how you can apply steady efforts to accomplish tangible results.
This is a good time to buy, sell, build, and exchange ideas and materials to advance your potential. It’s also important you carefully note the details of every commitment. A 4 Personal Year is a time when you may feel held back by responsibilities, but once the work is done, you’ll be glad you stuck it out and used your energy productively.
Pay attention to your health in 2021, as well as the mechanical functions in your home and anything you own. Keep up with your routines and don’t let yourself be sidetracked by the developments around the world. To reach the next level, you’ll need to manage your life with compassionate discipline and remember your purpose.
All that being said, you can still have fun in 2021. In fact, you should balance your life with activities, people, and experiences that give you a break, so that you can continually return refreshed to the goals at hand.
5 Personal Year
Your experiences in your 4 Year in 2020 have prepared you for the growth and expansion coming in this 5 Personal Year. Everything is up for a fresh, new look in 2021.
You have the opportunity to make great changes with your Personal Year number being the same as the Universal Year. The number 5 gives you the perspective to make choices that will create the freedom you desire. Still, don’t burn the bridges to your past connections. Keep relationships intact, but you’ll need to embrace exploration now to fully live your bountiful life.
The number 5 creates its own freedom through knowledge. In 2021, it’s your turn to remove your blinders and see the full scope of possibilities. Your attitude is everything, so be intentional about delimiting yourself and unlocking doors that have been closed. Let everyone be an inspiration to you.
Remember though, in your restless pursuits, that there are still rules and laws to abide by. Take your time and do things right.
6 Personal Year
As you enter a 6 Personal Year, you’re in the latter half of your 9-year cycle and learning about your responsibility to serve in everything you do. You’ve learned about balance, work, and opening to growth, and now you can share your truth, justice, and compassionate understanding to support others.
The number 6 is the energy of love that is shared in peace and harmony. Over the year, you will notice when you’re sincerely responding with kindness and care. 2021 is a time of service, but that doesn’t mean you’re a doormat for others. You’re finding the balance of being available while also giving yourself the same devotion you extend to others.
You may feel pulled by a desire to spend more time at home, in nature, and other beautiful locations in this 6 Year. By simply going with the easy flow of things, your relationships will prosper and your personal abundance will grow.
Speak from your heart and cherish moments with others and this will be a rewarding year that will refresh your soul.
7 Personal Year
While 2020 opened your heart, 2021 is all about awakening your higher mind. The 7 Personal Year is a magical year; you’re not in the ordinary world.
In a 7 Year, you attract unexpected grace that reveals the path to your most aligned success … but this will come in its own time.
With more time alone this year to understand what matters most to you, you’ll realize insights you may not have considered before. It’s like you’re in a cosmic vacuum, receiving an energetic upgrade. Beware what you spend your mental energy on, though, because what you’re thinking about will influence your reality.
You may start things off feeling tired from all the responsibilities you needed to address in 2020. 2021 is a year to be still. Let yourself be guided toward books to read, topics to study, places to travel, and space to meditate.
You need time to be able to hear and process the information you’re receiving. Pay attention to your intuitive hunches and don’t worry about pushing toward specific goals. Instead, keep a positive attitude and have faith and that things will happen as they should.
8 Personal Year
You’re ready for something more. After a lot of self-reflection in 2020, this 8 Personal Year is a year of achievement. It’s time to activate your personal power by advancing your energy toward a goal that represents responsible success. Prosperity is yours if you’re ready to move forward with efficient, sustained effort.
It’s up to you to create your destiny in 2021. You’ve climbed through a lot of lessons and now have an opportunity to act with a renewed sense of self-confidence and authority. You’re able to improve your life because you understand that it’s up to you to make the necessary changes.
The 8 Year is a year of action. You may begin with nothing, but you will create bountiful fruits through your efforts. Keep your common sense and know that opportunity lies in seizing the moment. Reach out to those who you can learn from.
Identify your values in 2021, then watch them blossom into a life that reflects what you care most about.
9 Personal Year
2021 is the last year in your 9-year cycle. The 9 Personal Year ties together all the lessons of the past eight years and gives you the whole perspective on life. It’s a time to bring closure and receive the rewards of your developed inner knowledge.
Through divine timing, you’ll be able to finish projects in 2021 that reflect your growing wisdom and perspective. You’re also paying attention to what hasn’t been working. With humility, you can make room for new love by letting go of the old habits, relationships, and patterns that no longer serve you.
This year you are deeply immersed in the continuum of life … it’s all connected some way. If something leaves you, let it go. Embrace the beauty of what is in the present moment and allow yourself the inner satisfaction that comes from lessons learned. There will be more to come when you begin a new cycle in 2022.
