Here's What Numerology Says About 2022

This is a 6 Year.

Now that 2022 has begun, do you wish you could predict what the year has in store for you? Put away your pendulum and tarot cards for the moment, because numerology is revealing 2022’s plans. Move over Law of Attraction, we’re decoding the hidden language of numbers!

Psst! Are you wondering, “What the heck is numerology and how much work is this going to require?” I'm here to help: Numerology is sort of like the cool, obscure friend of astrology. It might seem a bit unknown or “esoteric” because astrology is having the longest “Hot Girl Summer” ever, but like astrology, we can use it to help make predictions and learn more about ourselves.

What’s a Universal Year Number?

Not only do you personally have a Life Path Number, but so does the year 2022. Well, sort of. According to Western numerology, every year holds a significant vibration code that provides insight into what themes will come forward for the collective. This is what is known as a Universal Year Number.

How to Calculate a Universal Year Number

A Universal Year Number is easy to decode. Even if math was your least favorite subject, you’ll be able to handle this equation. Simply add all the numbers in the year. In the case of 2022, this adds up to a total of 6, making this a 6 Universal Year.

This year, 2022, breaks down to 2 + 0 + 2 + 2. This equals 6.

Next year, 2023, breaks down to 2 + 0 + 2 + 3. This equals 7.

You can do this with any year, past, present and future. Anywhere there’s numbers, there’s numerology. Try this exercise with your birth year and see how the major events of the world correlated with the Universal Year Number associated with it.

Note: When adding Universal Year Numbers, always make sure the grand total reduces to a sum of one through nine...unless it adds up to a Master Number, which are 11, 22, and 33. Master Numbers are never further reduced in Western numerology. For example, 1999 is a 1 Universal Year, because 1 + 9 + 9 + 9 = 28 takes you to 2+8=10, which takes you to 1+0=1.

How to Use Universal Year Numbers

Now that you’re in on this lesser-known form of divination, what do you do with the knowledge? Start familiarizing yourself with the basic definitions of the numbers. All numbers carry energy, and therefore they represent themes. They say, “everything lies veiled in numbers,” and that's no lie. Once you understand the basic definitions of numbers, you’ll be able to foretell what themes the year will bring into focus for you.

What The Numerology of 2022 Means

As you know by now, 2022 is a 6 Universal Year Number.

The keywords related to the number 6 include balance, home, health, karma, love, success, and service.

This is the energy of instilling discipline, boundaries, and humanitarianism. As you progress through the rest of this year, reflect on how these themes are appearing for you in your personal karma.

Take it a step further and sit with these areas of life and integrate them into your 2022 affirmations.

An Intention-Setting Exercise for 2022:

Reflect on or journal about these questions:

How are you welcoming balance into your life this year?

How do you plan on being of service to your community?

What ways are you embodying deeper self-love?

The themes of the year can organically tie into your intentions. As the year progresses, keep these questions in mind. May you manifest wisely.
