A quick refresher: Numerology is a belief system that numbers (from 1-9) have spiritual significance and symbolic meanings. And in numerology, there are things called Universal Years — aka the number that correlates with the year we’re currently in or the one we are going to be in soon. Felicia Bender, numerologist and author of Redesign Your Life: Using Numerology To Create the Wildly Optimal You and The Ultimate Guide to Numerology, tells Refinery29 that the Universal Year number is an energetic presence, support system, or theme that all of us experience globally in a specific year. You can calculate these by adding up the digits of a year: 2021 would be 2+0+2+1=5. So, we’re heading into 2021 with the magic number 5 leading the way. And the main theme of that particular number? Freedom.
