Apparently, numerology expert knew all along that 2020 was going to be a doozy of a year. Stephanie Nuzzo spoke to intuitive psychic reader Josy Curcio to explain why, and if we can expect 2021 to be any better…
At this point, I think we can all agree that 2020 is history’s equivalent to a burning bag of dog sh*t sitting on your front step.
We’ve been dealt an awful hand this year. In the space of five months, we’ve contended with devastating bushfires; the threat of world war three (remember that?); a global pandemic; an economic crisis and an onslaught of really bad DIY haircuts.
Fed up with the trajectory 2020 is taking us down, I thought I’d seek some guidance. I spoke with intuitive psychic reader Josy Curcio about the numerology for 2020, and what it can tell us about the year.
As it turns out, the answer to that is: a whole lot.
Now, before we dive into this spiritual journey, let me point out that your best source of advice during the coronavirus crisis is that of industry experts. Government updates and statements from the World Health Organisation should always be your first port of call. But if you’re interested in exploring numerology as something additional, that is truly your prerogative.
So, what did Curcio say?
Numerology is a guiding tool:
“A number has an influence, has a personality,” Curcio began. “And just like personalities in life – we’ve got our negative traits, we’ve got our positive traits – in numerology, you’ve got positive and negative [too].”
She explained that the meaning and personality behind each number allows the universe to nudge people in the right direction. “Upstairs constantly tries to guide us by showing us numbers here and there, ” she said.
If you’re new to numerology, the simplest way to describe the process is that all the numbers you have need to be added until you get to one digit. Then you can decipher the meaning attached to your number. For example, if you add the numbers in 1989 you get 27. Two plus seven is nine. Although all the numbers in 1989 do have relevance, the final figure (nine) is most important. “This final number is the main influence,” Curcio explained.
Each year, we’re given a number that impacts our experience:
Curcio explained that “like the Oriental zodiac, every year the numbers change”. This sets the tone of the year.
2020 is a doozy for a few reasons. The first being the presence of double-digits. “When we see double-digits, the influence is amplified,” Curcio said. The fact that we’re seeing two twos and two zeros is important. “The number two… it’s all about nurturing your self-growth,” she shared.
On a global level, she said this number indicates a need for us to take a moment to “look at our identity”. “As a nation, who the heck are we? As people; as a society; as a religion… as any kind of institution that we have started to create, who the heck are we? Are we true to ourselves?” she said.
Then there’s the double zero.
“The double-zero, it’s a bit of a scary influence,” she started. “The zero represents either a hole; being in the darkness… or it brings a pool of opportunities and amazing possibilities.”
She explained that this year has highlighted all the cracks in the ways we’ve been living. “Have you noticed the ones that have been doing it wrong…they’re exposed?” she said. “They’re [being] more selfish than ever. If that’s one person, you can choose to move away. But if that is a nation or an institution – can you see the damage?”
2020’s final number is four
Interestingly, number four is associated with “creating a better life for yourself,” Curcio said. This better life, however, is only attainable if you “put in the work” and live honestly.
“Number four is going to shake your foundations if they have been shifty to start off with. Any institutions that are being fake, they have to crumble – or they have to be exposed,” she shared.
“I knew this year was going to be tough – but I had no idea it was going to be to this level.”
Before you ask – yes, 2021 should be better:
Next year we’re working with number five. This, Curcio explained, represents “The sky and the ocean. Like, there’s an infinity of opportunity.” The year is expected to be about change and moving forward.
She expanded on this, sharing that those who have used their time this year to reflect, “they are just going to go amazingly” in 2021. “There’s definitely that light at the end of the tunnel.”
On the other side of this, however, those who have chosen to sit in their selfish ways are “going to be quite stuck”. What this explicitly means for the remainder of 2020 and the beginning of 2021 we obviously can’t be certain of. But regardless, there is a lot of relevance to Curcio’s words. We’re living through a terribly painful experience, but we are also being given an opportunity to reconsider our priorities.
Call me woo woo if you like, but I think there’s something beautiful about the prospect of stepping into 2021 with a better understanding of who you are and how you plan to approach life post-COVID.
