Numerology of 2021

This post is an excerpt from one chapter of the ebook Holistic Horoscopes 2021, which is available now. This is a condensed version of the chapter on the numerology of 2021.

The year 2021 adds up to being a #5 year in Numerology. This is a number that indicates that we have collectively reached the mid-point of the number sequence from One to Nine. We are between worlds, so to speak, and between definitive states of being. A Five year is the herald of a tremendous change that occurring in all aspects of our live. As a mid-point number Five indicates that much of what occurs this year is ultimately a form of preparation for what is yet to come.

Unlike the number Four, which rules home-related themes, security and the possibility of things being stuck, fenced in or locked down (such as the during the #4 year 2020), Five is a number of freedom. This freedom is not a guarantee but a strong desire, and due to five being an odd number its energy is erratic and unpredictable. Change is one of the key words associated with the number Five. So many things are going to be moving and happening so fast in some areas and yet in other areas like there are many things “up in the air” with much suspense around outcomes. There are many forks in the road and a multitude of options in different areas of life. As the saying goes, “when in doubt, do nothing”, which in this case means that acting compulsively will only lead to complications.

The number Five corresponds to the Tarot card the Hierophant, which highlights a connection to teachers, teaching and learning in general, ancient traditions, and customs. The image of this card also points toward a highly influential, although not necessarily a moral member of society. The negative side to this influence is the abuse that a person of authority (such as a political leader) is capable of. For some, the Hierophant’s symbolic presence will indicate a spiritual awakening or undertaking of some sort. For others it will be more physical that they experience a desire to break out of old patterns and explore new options.

The Hierophant corresponds to the sign of Taurus, a sign that is not particularly fond of change. Uranus, the planet of sudden reversals, extremes and radical change is currently transiting Taurus. This transit began in 2018 and will end in 2026. Furthermore, Uranus is being squared by Saturn three times this year, which is both a challenge and opportunity for us to become more solid and resourceful overall. During the Sun’s transit through Taurus between April 19th and May 20th in 2021 there may be some kind of worldwide change that impacts the masses in a fairly significant way. This change or series of changes may specifically relate to the Taurean themes of money, food and material goods.

The number Five may be seen as relative to the maintenance of health and wellness in general. There are Five Elements in Traditional Chinese Medicine, as well as the senses of the body as they relate to homeostasis. Each of these elements corresponds to both a natural element and major organ, responsible for keeping the integrity of the body and optimal wellness. Traditionally there are Four Elements that we speak of, corresponding to the Four Seasons. The fifth element is Ether, and that is what relates to the world unseen. This may serve as a reminder to seek for spiritual insight and aid, remembering that we are each more than these physical bodies, and that there is so much more to life than meets the physical eye.

Now more than ever, it has become imperative to take our health into our own hands instead of allowing personal health choices to be dictated by outer sources. Advancing medical dictatorship and martial law (such as the introduction of mandatory vaccines that have not been proven safe by any means) poses a huge threat to modern civilization.

The number Five is a reminder about the medicine that Mother Earth provides for us. It is a number that relates to Nature itself. Five serves to remind us that there are various methods of healing to suit every distinct personality and body type. There are many different ways to regain balance and equilibrium during the year 2021, and many innovative healing tools and methods available to us. The number Five, in addition to the focused energy in the sign of Aquarius encourages some experimentation to discover new things and ways of doing things.

This Five year is the cosmic signal for a great remembrance of who we are and what we are capable of. It is likely that the world will be receiving several huge wake-up calls that could redirect or illuminate priorities in some way. Because Five can sometimes lead to “scatteredness” it could be especially helpful to build the capacity to focus, or find some ways to slow down and simplify things that have become unnecessarily complicated.

As a Five year, 2021 is bound to be surprising in a number of different ways. For some people the changes experienced will be hugely beneficial and lead to an expansion or liberation of some kind. The best way to take advantage of a time period such as this is to prepare as much as possible and yet remain open and flexible to things that might not have occurred to us before but that prove to be helpful.
