2020: The Year of 4 and What It Means

We are about to enter a new decade, filling most of us with hope, excitement, and curiosity for what the world might bring. Will 2020 bring world clarity or will things get even more clouded in uncertainty? Luckily, numerology can help us uncover what lies ahead in the New Year.

What Does the Number 4 Symbolize?

When adding up all the numbers in 2020 (2+0+2+0=4), we discover that we’ll be starting the new decades in a 4 year. The number 4 is defined by hard work, determination and making plans. So when we enter a 4 year, we are allowed to lay the groundwork for our future selves, and possibly create a better world. The number 4 is also associated with money. It indicates times when we’re saving for the future or making smarter financial choices (potentially creating a better economy in 2020). Number 4s are generally very organized.

What Does the Number 4 Mean for 2020?

So, in 2020, we’ll likely see a rise in the creation of many different organizations, either for social justice, climate change, etc. An increase in safety and security will also be a point of focus this year. This is a business-minded number, it likes to have a plan and excuse it, so a lot of global issues that have been going on for the past year will finally start developing solid solutions. The number 4 is also a decisive number, so we’ll be faced with difficult choices that could affect us for years to come. It’s no surprise that 2020 is an election year in the United States.

The 4’s energy is very serious and disciplined; for instance, this will not be the wild, high energy year we had in 2019—a 3 year. This is a very steady, consistent flow of energy that may border on being just a bit dull. Remember: 4 is the builder of the zodiac; it’s taking time to build a solid fountain for many years to come. Change this year will not happen overnight, but will slowly grow over time. Remember: Hard work pays off big in the long run.

How to Harness the 4 Energy in 2020
