2016 By The Numbers: What Numerology Says About The New Year

The new year is upon us, and while many of us might not be willing to admit it, most, if not all of us, are wondering what 2016 will bring. To some, a new year is just the switching of calendars, but for others, passing into a new year is like passing through a veil into a new realm full of hope and new opportunities. It’s a time for introspection and resolutions, but it’s also a time many choose to try to predict what’s to come. What Does Numerology Say About the year 2016?


There are many superstitions when it comes to a new year and many involve divination of one form or another, but this article will strictly explore just one: numerology.

In so doing, it seems the first step is to define numerology for those unfamiliar with the term. The practice of numerology presupposes that there is a grand cosmic scheme and that the patterns and characteristics of that scheme are reflected in the way numbers appear in our lives. Remember Jim Carrey in The Number 23 (2007)? Something like that. So what do the numbers tell us about the year 2016? When studying the significance of numbers in numerology, the numbers involved must be reduced to a single digit. This is done by adding the digits together. In 2016, the equation would be: 2+0+1+6=9.

Astrology Club tells us that 9 is the universal number for 2016, but what does that mean for us?

“Nine is a finishing number, and represents the end of a cycle. It also is the number of the humanitarian. That means 2016 is a year of completion, rest and forgiveness.”

As one cycle ends, so a new one begins. While this suggests we will see facets of our lives coming to their inevitable ends, so too does this mean that 2016 will be a time of new beginnings. A prime example would be a possible divorce or the selling of one’s home. While these life events may seem dismal, depending on the circumstances, they may also open one up to the possibilities of new love interests or fulfilling the dream of relocating to a new city.

Getting Personal With Numerology For A Clearer Picture Of 2016

There are as many numerologists out there as there are tarot card or tea leaf readers, and each one has his or her own method for calculating one’s personal number. Generally, the numbers used are one’s birth date and the current year. Reduced down to a single digit, the number is then compared to a prepared chart, much like a daily horoscope.

One such formula is as follows:

1: Add the day and month of birth until a single digit is achieved. Ex. 2+8 = 10 = 1

2: Reduce the year to a single digit, as above. Ex. 2016 = 2+0+1+6 = 9

3. Finally, Add both numbers from the previous steps and reduce to a single digit. Ex. 1+9 = 10 = 1+0 =1.

The Personal Year Number for this date of birth for 2016 is 1.

For those sharing this Personal Year Number, it’s suggested that 2016 may be a year for adventure and change. One may even choose to improve oneself in the new year. Caution is also advised in the pursuit of one’s goals, but overall, those sharing this number should be prepared to receive positive changes in the coming new year.

Once you have determined your Personal Year Number, Sun Signs has full predictions for each number. It should be noted that numerology, much like any occult system of divination, is unproven and should not be taken too seriously. As with any system of belief, it’s up to the individual and how much faith he or she has in that system, which will ultimately determine its worth.
