Personal Year 2 Numerology Meaning
By calculating your personal year number you are evaluating the personal and universal energies that combine to shape your life.
The numbers that we find in our Numerology chart are accurate insofar as they help us understand our own personalities and inner characteristics.
But if we want to get an idea of how things are going to play out for us in the future, we need to take both personal and universal energies into account.
The personal year number is the sum of your life path or destiny number and the Universal Year Number for the year that you are looking at.
When you add these numbers together and reduce them to the specific root numbers that are applicable, you will find the number that will provide you with a general snapshot of the coming year.
Calculating your personal year number will allow you to anticipate the opportunities and challenges that are likely to arise in your life in the following year. This will help you take advantage of circumstances in a way that will help you fulfill your potential and find your life’s purpose.
Finding Your Personal Year Number
Before you can calculate your personal year number, you need to know both your life path number and the Universal Year Number for the year that you wish to investigate.
To calculate your life path number, all you have to do is add up all of the numbers in your date of birth and reduce them to the appropriate root number.
Someone who was born September 1, 1980 would find their life path number like this:
9 + 1 + 1 + 9 + 8 + 0 = 28
2 + 8 = 10
1 + 0 = 1
The Universal Year Number is found by reducing the four digit year number for the year you would like to investigate. In 2017, it would be:
2 + 0 + 1 + 7 = 10
1 + 0 = 1
The last step is to combine these two numbers to get your personal year number. In the case of someone who was born on September 1, 1980, their personal year number in 2017 would be 2.
What You Can Expect in a 2 Year
Personal year numbers usually follow a cycle of years that run from 1 – 9. The only possible exception would be those years in which your personal year number would result in a Master Number like 11 or 22.
In the case of these master numbers, you would find yourself under the influence of rare and powerful vibrations. It is possible that your 2 year could be an 11/2 personal year, in which case you would have sublime opportunities to help large numbers of people.
In an ordinary 2 year, however, your opportunities may not be as amazing as they would be in an 11/2 year. This is because the energy of a 2 year is generally spent taking a back seat to friends and family members in your life.
This supporting role, however, can be extremely rewarding and fulfilling.
The energy of root number 2 is passive, cooperative and subservient. In the previous 1 year you may have felt like you were on top of the world, coming up with new ideas and taking leadership roles in every project.
In a 2 year the best thing you can hope for is a strong supporting role.
The Symbolic Meaning of a 2 Year
In the Major Arcana of the Tarot, the number 2 is associated with the High Priestess card. The High Priestess is a card of great duality and ambiguity. She is symbolic of the mysterious feminine power referenced in Taoism as yin energy.
In Astrology, her planet is the moon because, like the moon, she shines with a borrowed light.
In a 2 year this is your predicament. If you shine, it will likely be like the moon, with borrowed light from the sun. This ‘borrowed light’ would usually come from someone who is influenced by strong 1 energy.
The Upside of a 2 Personal Year
In a 2 year you have a great opportunity to consolidate your position in life. In a 2 year, it is easy to find friends, supporters and allies who can help you improve your situations at work as well as in your personal life. This can help you create a stronger position in your professional life, and lasting relationships in your love life.
In 2 year family and friends are your highest priority. These situations, however, can be highly emotional. If you find yourself tossed by the emotions associated with 2 energy (which may be frustration or moodiness), it is essential that you cultivate patience and understanding.
In a 2 year it is your time to be cooperative and easy going, not brooding and argumentative.
Romance in a 2 Year
The partnerships that you create in a 2 year will likely be lasting, but romantic relationships may be subject to emotional drama and upheaval.
Be diplomatic and understanding while under the influence of this 2 energy and your relationships will survive well into the future.
It may seem, in a 2 personal year, that your life becomes full of drama involving family and friends, and intrigues at work.
Don’t get too caught up, however, because you will soon find yourself in a 3 personal year in which you will be at your creative best.
