2020 from a New Perspective – January 2020

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 2 in 22/ 4 (20+ 2 = 22/ 4), the 2 in this position can represent the 2 of love wisdom, rather than the 2 of emotion. Finally, the zero embodies the state before movement, capturing stillness and encouraging reflection of all these possibilities before a new cycle begins.

20 in Numerology represents ‘the miracle of birth’ and this can bring imperative creativity as well as ‘a need to be the best’ and potential violence. The year 2020 may represent the beginning of this process.

2 + 2 = 4 and 4 in numerology represents ‘harmony through conflict’ as potentially new structures are born. 22/ 4 in Numerology represents the ‘Master Builder’ building with just love and truth. This may be a long birth, potentially until 2100, as there may be massive resistance to the building of new structures as so many benefit from the existing structures.
