2018 – An 11/2 Universal Year: Learn to Work with Harmony, Balance, and Mutual Respect

Whether you believe in numerology or not, I think we all like to read about what the numbers have in store for us. And how they affect us and the people around us.

From the “1” year of 2017, we now have a “2” year. But not just any old “2” year – this one is made up of “11” which is considered a master number. How do we come to this?

This article, from Felicia Bender, describes how the master number is derived, and why the overall theme is Love!!

One of the reasons you simply can’t resist making New Year’s Resolutions is because you’re feeling a very real, very profound shift in energy from one year to the next. By the numbers, it’s undeniable. In numerology, the Universal Year is like the landscape or terrain you’re driving through all year long and is calculated by adding the numbers of the current year together.  You can think of it as the state or country you’re driving through on your yearly “road trip. ” 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, 2018) together like this:

2018 = 2 + 0 + 1 + 8 = 11

11 is a Master number

Then reduce again:

1 + 1 = 2

Some numerologist’s never reduce the Master numbers and so this would be an 11 Universal Year.

Other numerologist’s indicate the Master numbers by writing it this way:


All of us begin feeling this energy starting January 1, 2018 and it’ll end on December 31, 2018.

What Do You Need To Know About The 11/2 Universal Year?

In numerology, Master numbers are repeating numbers.  The most well know is the 11—yet the 22 and 33 are also Master numbers that come up in people’s numerology charts either as one of their “core” numbers in the chart or as the guiding energy during a specific cycle or transit.  The power of the Master numbers resides in its inherent polarity.  With the 11, the repeated number 1 can be considered male or masculine energy (doubled) adding to the number 2, which can be considered female or feminine energy.  Therefore this energetic matrix holds immeasurable power with the potential of the convergence of the most optimal qualities of the blending of masculine and feminine energy.

Just realize that the Master number brings with it an intensity that’s undeniable.   It’s generally observed that the Master numbers bring a higher spiritual purpose, no matter how you might define that.  The Master numbers carry a higher frequency and vibratory influence.  Energetically speaking, they’re always pushing you.  So in practical terms, the year 2018 is a year where the energy supporting and guiding all of us is rather intense.  This means that we’re going to feel high-strung mixed with a certain level of anxiety.  We’re going to feel a constant push and pull to be more and do better, often to the point of distraction.  You might also notice that you have higher expectations for yourself, even when others can’t see that those feelings are going on inside of you.  Everyone will be getting the internal call to step it up this year.
