Title: 2020 from a New Perspective
Above is a diagram of ‘The Tetractys’ – a mystical symbol attributed to Pythagoras, a Greek philosopher and the father of modern Numerology (born 570 BC). It is said that by pondering this symbol, the journey of ‘the energy of spirit’ through time and space may be revealed
This symbol represents the numbers from 1 to 20, which gives us the opportunity to view the journey from year 2000 to year 2020 in a whole new way, with numbers representing the energy of spirit as it evolves along its journey.
Viewing this Tetraktys in terms of years, we begin with the year 2000 at the top of a new Tetraktys, representing the beginning of a new cycle. The year 2000 signifies the end of more than 1900 years with a 1 at the front of the year and during most of this period, everyone would have had a 1 in their chart. The 1 represents the ‘unstoppable generator’ bursting with ambitious energy, this is symbolised by the element fire, and is regarded as the more masculine energy. With the strong influence of 1 energy, leaders during this time period tended to be more single minded and goal orientated.
With the year 2000, for the first time we had a 2 in the front of the year meaning new characteristics began to emerge, and by approximately 2100 everyone on this planet will have at least one 2 in their chart. The 2 energy is a completely different to the 1 energy, it is dominated by the Moon and is symbolised by the element water. The 2 is a more feminine, sensitive energy which is deeply aware of duality and has the characteristics of the diplomat, the facilitator and the peace maker. The Tetraktys illustrates how with the 2 energy we see separation for the first time; this is something we are witnessing as people choose to separate themselves out into their own ‘technology bubbles’. Separating ourselves allows time and space for us to reflect, potentially enabling us to observe more from a broader perspective and so rediscover the underlying unity behind everything. With the strong influence of 2 energy, we are also witnessing new leaders emerge, who see both sides of a situation and who focus on empathy, understanding and co-operation. This 2 energy can potentially lead to the 3 of creativity, turning raw feelings into great ideas at a higher level of development.
The zero in numerology represents the potential, the space, the no-thing that is eternal and from which everything flows. The zero also represents the lens or ‘the all seeing eye’ as it contains all that is past and the possibilities of new creation. This lens can magnify the qualities of numbers with a zero behind them such as the 1 in 31/ 4 (30+ 1 = 31/ 4), the 1 in this position can represent tremendous will driving forward. Finally, the zero embodies the state before movement, capturing stillness and encouraging reflection of all these possibilities before a new cycle begins.
Title: The New £20 Note & Artist JMW Turner
The new plastic Bank of England £20 notes came into circulation on 20 February 2020 and will eventually replace the paper £20 notes still in use. They are made from a plastic polymer like the new £5 and £10 denominations, which is said to be more durable, cleaner and secure than paper. The improved security features include further steps being taken against counterfeiting with 2 windows and 2 colour foil.
There is lots of 2 energy represented here, which may bring painful feelings of separateness, but is ultimately about looking deeper to find truth and share it, to develop something new after a period of time.
Turner was known as ‘the painter of light’ as his paintings of landscapes and seascapes conveyed great emotion and passion. Sometimes turbulent and often violent, his seascapes connect directly with the 2 energy, which in Numerology is represented by the element of water.
Rather than communicate what was seen in the physical realm, Turner was about communicating the energetic essence of the scene, alive with emotion and movement, making the spiritual come alive in a flat, physical form. Turner’s paintings brought in new thinking with regard to painting and a new art movement.
Title: 2019 as seen from the Perspective of the Tetrktys
The Tetraktys is an ancient symbol which can be interpreted in many ways, and can be applied as a visual representation of the journey for the number 1. This can be used to illustrate how powerful 2019 may be, as we come to the end of karmic years.
On a planetary level we are witnessing everything coming up to be transformed, and it is perhaps no co-incidence that 19 in terms of Numerology represents the correct use of power.
On one level these are scary times, but we are also privileged to witness shifts that will potentially impact everyone. Such shifts only occur once every one thousand years.
