Each calendar year holds a numerical vibration. This affects everyone on the planet, as an overarching energy that informs everything we do during those 12 months.

The energy of this number shifts into gear on January 1st and exits the collective on Dec 31st, yet its full power is felt differently, according to the month, and of course, how your personal numerology interacts with it.

It’s easy to Calculate the Universal Year in Numerology – here’s how:

  • Start by writing down the digits that make up the current year (just the year – we don’t need the day or month)
  • Now, add each single-digit together.
  • If you reach a number that’s 10 or more, keep adding.

**NOTE: If your result is a Master Number (11, or 22) then don’t reduce any further.

2 Universal YearPinUniversal Year 2 Reading

A 2 Universal Year is the second stage of a 9-Year cycle. It still holds an emergent quality, yet the focus has definitely moved beyond the individual.

The Universal Energy of the number 2 is all about building alliances and extending your trust to other people. Through collaboration and partnership, good things will come. So it’s time to stretch out your hand and connect to the world!


This Numerology also brings a surge in psychic, intuitive and subtle senses.

The number 2 is highly spiritual, so under this Universal Year Number, many folks will undoubtedly discover (and learn to trust) gifts they never knew they had…

What are the keys to success in a Universal Year Number 2?

1. Focus on Teamwork

This Universal Year cycle is all about otherness. Teamwork, cooperation, and mutual happiness come to the fore. Be prepared to enjoy the experience of building connections with others and learning to accept what they have to give.

Yet realize that this cycle’s energy is as much about giving as it’s about receiving – allow yourself to be cared for, as well as to care.

2. Collaborate

The numerology demands that you reach out to others. BUT collaboration needs balance – be sure to maintain equality in your partnerships, whether they’re for business or pleasure.

Truly great things can come from collaboration under this number 2 cycle’s energy. It’s the time to break out from the self-focus of the last year and look to a new cycle of growth of a slightly different kind.

3. Deepen into Trust

Trust issues from the past are likely to come up under this numerology.

Release suspicion. Try to believe people’s best interests and see them as their higher selves. Doing this will help them to step into becoming it. Release divisiveness.

Because the energy of this year is all-pervasive, there is a tendency to want to give, be generous and open. Expect this, and you will bring it into being, co-creating it with others.


4. Trust Yourself – Let Your Intuition RULE!

This year holds one of the most spiritual vibrations.
If you have a hunch, trust it. If you get an intuitive hit, go with it! This numerology supports psychic development, so if you flex those muscles, the Universe will meet you halfway!

If you’ve been wondering about developing or deepening into a spiritual practice, this is an ideal 12 months to dive in.


5. Work on your Boundaries

This Numerology can sometimes cause personal boundaries to become a little lax. The number 2 is notoriously sensitive and even empathic, especially in busy social situations.

So take care to work on those personal boundaries. Feel into your power, and make sure you’re not giving it away. And in turn, be aware of others’ energy and how much you are taking on that doesn’t belong to you.

Challenges of the Universal Year Number 2

As mentioned, collective empathy can go into overdrive during a 2 Universal Year. So it’s vital to understand energy work – even just a little – so that you can recognize which energy belongs to you, and which belongs to other people.

This is a gentle cycle. Yet there’s the potential for less-than assertive behavior. Or expecting other people to make big decisions and neglecting to make them yourself.

Your sense of self can dissolve, as the energy of the number 2 is so focused on relating to others. Co-dependency may feature. BUT, this can also be a great cycle in which to tackle any unhealthy relationship patterns, as 1. they show up. And 2. Universal energy supports anything that pertains to relating.
