As the clock strikes midnight into New Years day, we are filled with fresh promises and a sense of renewal as we begin a fresh a brand new year. It can be helpful to be aware of the underlying energies of the year in order to refine and align our own energy fields to maximise the potentiality for our happiest, healthiest and wealthiest year yet!
Here I explore energy predictions from the ancient arts of numerology, colour therapy and symbology, drawing upon advice from leading experts in the fields.
2015 – an 8 Universal Year
According to numerology, 2015 is a number 8 Universal Year.
A Universal Year means that everyone on the planet will be feeling the energy related to a particular number during the entire year. You calculate the Universal Year by simply adding the numbers in the current year (in this case, 2015) together like this:
2015 = 2 + 0 + 1 + 5 = 8
8 is considered the number of: POWER, MONEY & BALANCE.
The essence of the 8 is balance, so 2015 will ask us to address balance; on a personal level and on the world stage. It’s clear that growing imbalances exists on social, political and environmental levels; between the rich and the poor, the powerful and the helpless, between those destroying the planet and those actively protecting it. The good news is, the year 2015 will push to readdress some of this imbalance on all levels.
2015 is your year to develop and nurture everything related to money, power, control, and authority.
Bringing back balance
Numerologist Hans Decoz predicts that ”the year 2015 will rectify some of this imbalance by adding to the light side of the scale while removing excess from the heavy side. Since this is an 8 year, it will affect the economy most predominately. The global economy will catch the brunt of the 8’s push for balance, so expect the financial markets to experience ups and downs that will make investors and economists dizzy.”
On a personal level, we will benefit greatly if we begin to readdress balance in all areas of our lives; work, home, relationships, money, health etc. Any areas of imbalance will become abundantly clear and come to the surface to be dealt with.
In the money
Numerologist Felicia Bender explains how number 8 is the money number. It can bear fruit to all the blood, sweat and tears you have shed over the years in pursuit of a financial goal. 2015 could be the year that our ship will finally come in….
And yes, the energy of the 8 Universal Year can bring all of that abundance to the forefront. No doubt about it. And it can feel magical and sweep you away with its power. ~ Felicia Bender
Felicia warns that 2015 is also likely to test your resolve and sense of personal power. A year to consider your beliefs around your worth; do you feel worthy? Do you ask for what you’re worth? Do you take responsibility for yourself? Or do people mistake you for a well-worn doormat? Have you opted into victimhood and believe that the scarcity you experience is everyone else’s fault?
According to Felicia ”The energy of the 8 can also take you down a notch if you lean toward living in the ego—are you overly money-focused? A workaholic? Troubled with an addiction or two? This could be a year where you get a wake-up call and experience a period of spiritual recalibration.”
It’s a year to Think Big. Announce your intentions in neon. Plan. Organize. Manage. Put petty emotions aside and tap into practical business-like thinking. It’s not a year for slacking, procrastinating, or playing the victim. ~ Felicia Bender

According to the ancient art of Colour Therapy, the number 8 is represented by the colour Magenta.
UNIVERSAL HARMONY, BALANCE, ABUNDANCE, UNCONDITIONAL LOVE, CREATIVITY, BEAUTY, GOING WITH THE FLOW, RELEASING, NURTURING, HAPPINESS, ILLUMINATING, TRANSFORMATION, PERSONAL CHANGE, SPIRITUAL UPLIFTMENT, BUSINESS ACUMEN.
Magenta years prompt us to make changes so that we can evolve spiritually, and create harmony and balance in every aspect of life; physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Magenta holds the vibration of violet and red so acts as a bridge between “Heaven on Earth.” It urges us to ground our spiritual awareness with a solid footing in the physical world.
Colour Therapist Penni Du Plessis explains how Magenta contains the passion, power and energy of red, restrained by the introspection and quiet energy of Violet. Therefore Magenta is both the end and the beginning of the Light Spectrum – representing the Alpha and the Omega – the fullest expression of Divine Love.
”In the meaning of colours, Magenta represents universal love at its highest level. It promotes compassion, kindness and cooperation and encourages a sense of self-respect and contentment in those who use it. Gentle and caring in its approach, it generates acceptance, tolerance, support and patience.”
When I see the colour Magenta I feel more optimistic as I associate it with cheerfulness and joy, celebration even. Penni Du Plessis claims it is the colour of contentment and appreciation for what you have acquired and achieved. We can use it to look at what we have with gratitude and reverence, magnetizing to us more of the same.
To Infinity and Beyond
Eight is Also the Infinity Symbol.
When I see the number eight, I also see the infinity symbol turned upright; a mathematical symbol representing the concept of infinity, having no beginning and no end.
It is fluid continual motion, to expand beyond all form and have no beginning or end. Love is infinite. ~ Auriel Morgana, sound healer
The Infinity symbol exists across many different cultures with differing meanings, some of which include:
- infinite possibility and power.
- everlasting cycles
- everlasting love
- the relationship between the finite and the Infinite
The infinity symbol reminds us that we are all infinite beings in a finite world. It helps us expand our awareness into infinite awareness, to begin the journey of self discovery to know our selves fully.
It invites us to ask questions. ‘Without deep on-going self-inquiry and questioning of every belief held in your mind, you will not discover your infinity. The entire subconscious mind is filled with thousands of beliefs about your finiteness, your limitations, your shortcomings, your inadequacies, your lacks, your entrapment, your loneliness and separateness. These beliefs have become reality to us. They operate unconsciously like a hypnotic spell.’ By using this symbol in meditation, we can begin to address our innermost pain and correct our limiting beliefs. All of your stress, pain and symptoms arise from the unawareness of your infinite/finite nature. We have bought into the finite belief system of human history and we are victims of that mindset.
