The Law of Vibration, also known as the Law of Energy, is one of several Universal Laws and ensures that energy is sent out to the universe constantly. This means that a myriad of vibrations or frequencies is continually being received by the Earth at different times.

A highly unusual occurrence at the present time is that enormous amounts of high frequency vibrations are being sent to Earth causing a massive shift of energy. These new vibrations that are being ground into the Earth commenced around 2012 and are said to continue until around the year 2033, ultimately bringing a new kind of stability.

Although this is a difficult concept to grasp, this new energy is also helping raise the frequency of our bodies to ultimately bring change at a profound level. Not only does it bring a transformation of our belief systems; two latent strands of our DNA are being triggered to activate. The ultimate result is yet to be seen, however these cellular changes deep within our body are said to bring benefits that include improved health and wellbeing and an expansion of our consciousness.

The Law of Vibration is responsible for the cyclical activity of energy on Earth. Repeating cycles occur every nine years and each of the years within this nine-year cycle has its own individual vibration. The vibration for the year, called a “Universal Year”, holds key information that helps us discover the trend of events for the whole year. This means that as we enter a new calendar year a brand-new frequency is being heralded in whose general themes and influences affect us all.

To work out the universal year number we add together the numbers that make up the year in question and reduce these to a single digit. The year 2019, for example is a 3-year (2 + 0 + 1 + 9 = 12; 1 + 2 = 3).

At the time of this writing, we are entering 2021, a ‘5’ universal year

(2 + 0 + 2 + 1 = 5). Number 5 sits mid-way between the numbers 1-9. There are four numbers before it and four numbers that follow. This means that the 5 vibration  holds a pivotal role to shift us into the second half of the 9-year cycle.

Number ‘5’ is concerned with progress and the attainment of freedom. As such it demands high-level change. Variety and adventure as well as new social norms are an innate part of its make-up that support us in adjusting to changing circumstances as we move forward in time.

As we move through 2021 we can expect transformation at a deep level. Priorities include seeking freedom from the restrictions placed on us through political powerplays that may erode our civil rights. As long as we are able to adapt to new situations this will be an expansive year that brings progress and new opportunities our way.

The descriptions that follow give insights into what to expect in each universal year of the nine-year cycle:


As the beginning of a new 9-year cycle, the 1-year heralds in a new era of events. Number 1 is concerned with creativity and the spirit is that of the pioneer. This is a year for new ways of expression and new ventures. In 1999, a 1-year (1 + 9 + 9 + 9 + 0 = 28; 2 + 8 = 1), the Euro currency was introduced. 

In 1927, another 1-year (1 + 9 + 2 + 7 = 19; 1 + 9 = 1) Charles Lindbergh became the first person to fly across the Atlantic nonstop in his plane named “The Spirit of St Louis”. Interestingly, the plane he flew was a monoplane, which has only one pair of wings.


This is a year for co-operative effort. World politics may take a front seat. Through  people working in association with each other, diplomatic solutions are more readily found and cultural differences overcome. Teamwork, friendships and women’s issues are highlighted.

In 1928 (1 + 9 + 2 + 8 = 20;  2 + 0 = 2) a 2-year, Amelia Earhart was the first woman to fly as a passenger across the Atlantic. The name of the plane was “Friendship”. Following this flight, Amelia became an instant celebrity.


As well as a year for fun and entertainment this is a year concerned with hopes and dreams. Expect extreme highs and lows. In the negative, focus is easily lost, and energies readily scattered. Number 3 is about communication and expression. This is creation energy, the results of which may not be evident until year 6 of the cycle.

In 1920, a 3-year (1 + 9 + 2 + 0 = 12; 1 + 2 = 3) the Women’s Suffrage Movement in the United States resulted in women finally gaining a voice with the right to vote. An extreme low in 1929 was the Wall Street Crash (1 + 9 + 2 + 9 = 21; 2 + 1 = 3) another 3-year. Many people lost their entire savings as financial institutions went bankrupt. There were several reasons for the crash, including over-lending by banks and reckless overconfidence by consumers.


This is a serious year bringing increased responsibility with old structures making way for new foundations to be built. Unexpected events are commonplace. It is easy to take on too much especially in the work arena, so try not to burn the candle at both ends.

The year 1912, a 4-year (1 + 9 + 1 + 2 = 13; 1 + 3 = 4) saw the sinking of the Titanic. This tragedy resulted in an overhaul of maritime safety, with new Maritime Laws being passed along with enforcement of policies relating to ship building, shipping lanes and safety procedures.

Last year, 2020 was a 4-year (2 + 0 + 2 + 0) that shaped up to be a year like no other. Through major upheaval of all systems, health, economic, social and financial, stemming from Covid-19, many levels of radical adjustments have been and continue to be made throughout the world. Positively number 4 brings resilience, focus and increased responsibility. Because 4 is Earth energy it relates to our body. External circumstances forced us to take a closer look at our personal health and way of life and we had to be more accountable for our actions. Four is also about truth and integrity; we are only now just seeing truth come to light with the way being cleared to eliminate false news and fake institutions.

As well as being a year of dismantling, 2020 was a year of reset when the creation energies of the previous year, a 3-year (2 + 0 + 1 + 9 = 12; 1 + 2 = 3) were ground into the Earth.  Unexpected happenings served to jolt us out of our comfort zone in order to effect change. Although not readily visible, 2020 saw firm foundations being laid for the future.

As a time of innovation, much research was occurring behind the scenes. With a world-wide lockdown we saw countries share information and work in a unified manner as never before, seeking answers to solve a multitude of urgent problems faced by humanity.

The year 2020 will be etched into history as a year to remember. Taking a deep dive into numerology we can see why. Ignoring the two zeros, we have the number 22, a Master number that holds a much higher vibration than any single digit number. All qualities of the base number 4 (2 + 2) still apply, with disruptions, unexpected change and new foundations being laid. Energetically, however, the qualities of the 4 vibration are magnified for good or bad.

This intense vibration had effects that were unpredictable and concentrated into the whole year. Although seemingly insurmountable, ultimately we gained a better understanding of our inner selves and the world we live in.

Master 22 is called the “Master Builder”. To build anew we firstly need to get rid of patterns that are old and outworn. In this tumultuous year this is exactly what transpired. We saw the breaking down of multiple systems with much chaos and confusion. Although difficult to comprehend, preparation for deep level change was  occurring behind the scenes to shift humanity into a promising future. Part of the work of Master 22 is to bring hopes and dreams to fulfillment by grounding them into reality. The universe has been helping us, planning for us to move forward.


Changes can be expected in international trade with far-reaching agreements being signed. The best results will be gained by being adaptable and going with the flow. As well as an adjustment year, this is a year of discovery.

In 2012 (2 + 0 + 1 + 2) a 5-year, NASA successfully landed a rover named “Curiosity” on Mars as part of a 2-year mission, sending crucial data back to Earth for future space travel.


This is a year of responsibility with emphasis on family and home. Advances in health, education and environmental causes are likely, whilst much energy will be invested into large-scale projects created in the 3-year. World leaders are likely to work together for the better good.

In 2013 (2 + 0 + 1 + 3) a 6-year, Prince George, the first child of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge was born, giving an emphasis to family and responsibility.

Another 6-year, that of 2022 (2 + 0 + 2 + 2 ) with its three 2s will pan out to be a high energy year with much intensity. Children born this year will be highly intuitive and emotionally sensitive. Six brings much creativity with art and music being central themes that help balance out the strong vibrations of the multiple 2s.


The 7-year brings a desire for perfection and a yearning to unravel the deeper mysteries of life. Important scientific discoveries and breakthroughs are likely. Animals and animal rights may be topical. Issues around water may dominate and need resolution.

In 1969, a 7-year (1 + 9 + 6 + 9 = 25; 2 + 5 = 7) Americans Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin were the first men to land on the Moon. Seven is connected with Neptune, a spiritual planet that deepens our understanding of the mysteries of life. Travel is highlighted to places away from the beaten track. Seven is the number of analysis and is also associated with new discoveries.

Another 7-year, that of 1996 (1 + 9 + 9 + 6 = 25; 2 + 5 = 7) marked the dawn of cloning with the cloning of Dolly the Sheep at the Roslin Institute in Scotland.


The 8-year brings many opportunities. Expect to see a concerted effort in the business arena with the merging of powerful corporations and consolidation of industries. Finances are highlighted.

In 1997, an 8-year (1 + 9 + 9 + 7 = 26; 2 + 6 = 8) Netflix was created by two entrepreneurs in California. In 2015 (2 + 0 + 1 + 5), another 8-year, Netflix was introduced to the Australian market. This company has grown to be one of the world’s leading internet entertainment platforms.


At the end of the cycle, the 9-year is usually a year of noteworthy humanitarian service to others. Tolerance and understanding are important as energy can easily be wasted in getting caught up in dramas. This is a time of endings, a time to complete unfinished business and to work in unity. Artistic endeavours are highlighted.

In 2016, (2 + 0 + 1 + 6) a 9-year, Britain voted to leave the European Union, commonly referred to as “Brexit”. In the same year, Donald Trump was elected as President of the United States. Trump, the 45th U.S. President (4 + 5 = 9), is said to be the last.

Each year brings a different energy for us to feel into and to work with. As we journey quickly forward in time this energy, in gathering momentum is resulting in an expansion of awareness and a consciousness upgrade. May we embrace this transformation and move forward in unity to co-create a world of Peace, Love and Happiness.
