2104 - The Year Ahead

 2 + 0 + 1 + 4 = 7

When we look at the year ahead in numerology it’s important to understand the significance of each digit involved in the sum of the Universal Year. The simplest way to explain how numerology works is by understanding that each number takes us on a specific journey, or lesson. Like most things in life, the numbers carry with them both positive and negative characteristics, and it is up to us how we choose to work through the challenges they bring our way.

A quick description of the numbers 2014:

2 - The number two represents the need to relate to one another on an equal basis. It encourages us to be supportive and cooperative with one another, where balance and teamwork are of upmost importance. It is associated with the Moon in astrology, therefore our intuition, feelings, and emotions play a big part. Supporting and helping others is all good and well, but we must also pay attention to our own emotional needs, making sure that they are also fulfilled. Finding a healthy balance between give and take is the hallmark.

0 - The zero represents the need to follow and act on our humanitarian inclinations. Our ability to do something, whether big or small that helps mankind in some way is the key. We must be void of judgement and prejudice towards others, and instead adopt a more compassionate and understanding point of view when it comes to the suffering of others and what we can do to help alleviate this.

1 - The number one represents our will-power and our striving for an objective. It asks that we stand up for ourselves, that we be assertive and courageous, and speak up for what we believe in. It shows the need to embrace independent action, regardless of opposition. That we be original and innovative in our drive to create the future we envisage.

4 - The number four represents the need to strengthen our foundations - primarily; our home, work, finances and health. It shows the need for order and the restructuring of our lives. It is ruled by the planet Uranus in astrology, which indicates rebellion, revolution, and the tearing away of the old and useless, in order to make way for the new and progressive. 

The sum of all these numbers equals 7. This number shows what the year ahead holds in store for us. Seven represents amongst other things - CHANGE and SPIRITUAL AWARENESS. It asks that we reflect on our past, look at the present, and plan for the future. It provides us with the opportunity to take a hold of the reins and create the necessary adjustments or changes needed in order to take our lives in the direction we wish to. It is ruled by the planet Neptune in astrology, which at its highest potential stands for spiritual awakening, compassion, tolerance and understanding. At its lowest vibration it implies lies, deception and illusion.

How does numerology help to predict the year ahead?

By understanding the vibrational significance of each digit contained within a specific year and the lessons pertaining to those numbers we are able to take a glimpse at the challenges, as well as the gifts the year ahead holds in store for us. Every number tells a story and takes us down a specific journey. There are positive and negative attributes that apply to each number and it is up to us to ensure we work with the highest potential of each number.

2014 will be a year of tremendous change, both on a universal level and on a personal level.

I see people coming together, supporting and helping one another towards a common vision, based mostly on equal rights. More and more people around the world will find the strength and courage to stand up for what they believe, for their rights, and for the truth. I expect an atmosphere of revolution, with a strong and progressive mindset. There will be more lies and deception to contend with from governments and those in positions of authority, but as the people unite and open their eyes to the truth of what surrounds us, we will no longer remain passengers on this journey, but rather the instigators of well needed change world wide. How we handle this coming year will either break us or make us in 2015 - a year that promises abundance, or at its very worst, another financial crisis. I suspect there will be more natural disasters taking place, some of which will take us by surprise.

In so far as relationships are concerned it is important that we focus on being more understanding and supportive of one another, with an emphasis on creating peaceful and harmonious relationships. We must take our fair share of responsibility without leaning on loved ones unnecessarily. Feelings and emotions are bound to flair-up this coming year, reminding us of the need to take stock and listen to what our emotions are trying to tell us. This will give us the opportunity to focus on creating an atmosphere based on compromise, where everyone’s needs are met fairly. The 7 year is not one that focuses greatly on work or finances, but rather a time to sit quietly, contemplate and think about the changes we need or want to make in our lives. Spending more time in nature and away from the busy humdrum is the key.

Focus on helping and supporting one another more. Let your voice be heard and stand up for yourself and others when necessary, don’t be afraid to go against the grain. Spend some quiet time contemplating on the things you would like to change, and change them!

2014 will be a good year to do some soul searching and introspection, to gain self-understanding, and to develop inner power and spiritual awareness.
