In my ‘World 2017’ blog, I discussed some of what the coming year will look like. However, I do not just predict the future – I also look at the past. I chose 2008 through 2016 because that is the most recent world cycle. This look at the numerology behind that cycle may help you understand why certain events occurred at that time.
We were in cycle 224 – an 8 cycle. 8 cycles focus on fame, fortune, and business. The 2s in 224 indicate a need for cooperation. The 4 indicates limits and a need to be practical.
The first effect of the 8 cycle fell on fortune. Due to the burst of a housing bubble and several other factors (see the Wikipedia article: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Recession), much of the world entered a recession. It is interesting to note that the majority of the countries that had an economic recession were first-world countries – the countries that tend to create world policy. Most of the second- and third-world countries actually experienced an economic boom. Even more interesting is the fact that China, in 2008, was considered by most people to be second-world at best. However, that is the country that had the biggest economic boom at the time, and now most people consider China to be a first-world country.
The recession was officially over by the end of 2009, which makes sense, since 2010 was a 3 universal year, and those are known for a sense of joy. As many of you know, that relief was not felt by individuals, or even many major corporations, though it was felt by most countries. In fact, a weak recovery from the recession (which was indicated by the 4 in 224 – 4s typically build slowly) was felt next by corporations, who had to restructure spending plans, rebalance budgets, and cut back on spending. That trickled on down to individuals, as people lost jobs or had hours cut back and had trouble finding sources of income to replace the lost revenue. Depending on where you live, you could have continued to see the effects into the present, though for most, the worst was over by the end of 2014.
This makes sense numerologically because 2015 was an 8 universal year – a year for fame, fortune, and business. Given the negativity of the 8 cycle to this point, doubling it turned it positive. Thus most individuals and surviving corporations saw an increase in income that year.
Fame did not play a major role until 2016 – the final year of the cycle. It was a 9 year – a year for endings. The 1 indicates leadership and the 6 indicates responsibility and humanitarianism. Thus, we saw an inordinate number of famous role models die that year. As many of my friends have good reason to know, role models who were not so famous were also prone to dying, particularly in the beginning of the year. There has been some spillover into 2017, though we should see the deaths taper off to a normal level in March or April.
Now you know why major events happened when they did from 2008 through 2016. If you wish to compare that cycle to the three previous 8 cycles, those occurred during the years 1927-1935, 1846-1854, and 1765-1773.
