As this 2023 year draws to a close, it is a perfect time to reflect on what this 7 Universal Year has meant for you. You may feel like you have been in a bit of a dream state for the past 12 months with your gaze turned inward much of the time, working on spiritual aspects, parts of you that you have felt safer with keeping hidden or suppressed. Have a look back and see how far you have come. It can be a bit deceiving because with so much introspection, deep spiritual work and personal growth taking place beneath the surface, you may find yourself wondering if anything has changed at all as the results are often in the realm of the unseen rather than anything tangible.
In preparation for the new year, I encourage you to take a moment in these last few days of 2023 to see what you no longer want in your life, where you have liberated yourself and where you are still feeling hesitant and a bit like a fish out of water, because 2024 is going to be a powerful year.
2024 holds the energetic influence of an 8 and you arrive at this by adding up the individual numbers 2+0+2+4 = 8. The last time we experienced an 8 Universal Year was in 2015. Think back to then and what was going on in your life. Personally, my husband and I started a business back in 2015 and that radically and powerfully changed our lives.
The 8 is the most active spiritual number and an 8 Universal Year is a year to manifest what it is you truly desire. As above, so below. As within, so without. Number 8 is the number of complete balancing of yin and yang, left- and right brain and integration. All the inner, non-material aspects worked on in the 7 Universal Year now have a chance to materialise and become manifest in an 8 Universal Year.
Some other major themes likely to feature in 2024:
Balancing karma - Number 8 is governed by the planet Saturn – the ringed planet that rules our karma and consequences of our choices and therefore, 8 is also a number linked to karma and money. It will be a year of balancing personal and global karmic debits and credits.
Globally, we are all balancing the polarities and finding our zero point of truth in the centre – just as the 8 has a centre point between the two ellipses. Integrating all the disparate parts of ourselves, coming back to our essence and shifting our perceptions out of duality and into an expanded unity consciousness is the goal for 2024.
Feminine Power – One of the buzzwords for an 8 Universal Year is “Power” with a focus on authority, sovereignty, inner strength, efficiency, good judgement, fierceness and poise. Because 8 is a feminine number, there will more than likely be an upsurge of the qualities of feminine power and aspects within ourselves and leadership in the world at large.
Embodying these qualities will be paramount as we move away from the more destructive 8 energies that have dominated our world for so long. The energies of abuse, anger, cruelty, ignorance, intolerance, revenge, greed, tactlessness, domination, control, arrogance, impatience and an over-focus on materialism.
Abundance - The highest and ultimate expression of an 8 is the achiever with strong executive abilities, so in an 8 Year we are presented with an opportunity of gaining spiritual and financial independence and control over our affairs. The material resources that we have at our disposal are largely linked to self-worth. If finances and resources have been an area where you have experienced lack then use the energies of 2024 to re-evaluate how you value yourself and your abilities.
It’s all about giving and receiving. Money coming in and going out. If we experience abundance, it is wonderful to be able to share that and help others empower themselves.
It is likely that there will be financial ups and downs in an 8 Universal Year but sometimes we need to spend money to make money. Be sure to align whatever ventures you embark on with values that you support.
We could see a global economic shift with financial and power structures collapsing and the emerging of new ones. I wrote about the number 8 Strength Tarot Card in my blog about the 8 8 Lionsgate portal which reminds us that we can face challenges and conflict with strength, compassionate awareness, faith and dollops of courage and unconditional love.
