What can the Numerology of 2020 tell me about the energetics of the year ahead?  After some research and review this is what I came up with.

2020 is a Universal 4 Year

What does that mean?

  •  A 4 year is a time to settle down to hard work and build a good foundation.
  • A year that inspires us to explore, discover and learn and is a good time for spiritual discovery, personal growth and education.
  • The number 4 is a business number so it likes to have a plan and execute it.
  • It is a year with a  very steady, consistent flow of energy which makes it an excellent time for building.  The changes that are made don’t happen overnight but grow slowly over time.
  • It is also a year for action.  a time to create a tangible plan and start to put it into action.  No more just sitting around visualizing.  Now it is the time to start working towards making those goals a reality.  The slow steady action we put into place in 2020 will help create our desired outcome.  Without action, nothing will happen.
  • It is also a time to let go of everything that doesn’t work, so that we can make room for the new to emerge.

Hmm, so what essential oils am I going to consider that will help support this 2020 energy?

In Spiritual PhytoEssencing
  • Thyme (Thymus vulgaris) has the theme of Work and Duty.
  • Frankincense (Boswellia sacra) allows one to let go of the past, connect with the present and plan for the future.
  • Grapefruit (Citrus x paradisi) is associated with the number four.

As these oils reflect the energetics for the Universal Year of 2020 they would be the same for everyone, so the base or underlying accord we can all work with.

Personal Year

After that, each of us could layer another accord on top of this.  An accord that reflects the energetics of our own Personal Year.  You calculate your Personal year by adding the day and month of your birthday together.  Reduce that to a single number.  Then add the Universal Year Number.  For example if you were born February 15, you add 2 + 6 for your month and day, then add the 8 to the number of the Universal Year, which in this case is 4.  Your total of 12 would again be reduced to a single number to get a Personal year of 3.

I started with the oils for the 2020 Universal Year Accord using 1 drop Thyme, 2 drops Frankincense and 5 drops Grapefruit. Then I layered that with my Personal Year Accord (9) with Lemon (Citrus x limon) (Number 9) 5 drops; Sage (Salvia officinalis) (Letting Go) 1 drop and Fenugeek (Trigonella foenum-graecum) (Completeness) 1 drop.

I will use it in a 100 ml mister bottle topped up with grain alcohol and water.

Will any of you give this a try, and if you do what you will come up with?
