The year 2020 was a big year of challenges for a number of reasons, many (but not all) of which stem from the onset of the pandemic. And while that energy has in large part spilled over into 2021, thankfully, according to numerology—a system that examines the significance of specific numbers that make up a year, birthdate, numbers that correspond to letters of a name, or other important digits—the tides have already begun to turn in 2022. Cue: a collective sigh of relief.

While we may be well into 2022, there’s still several months left to reap the benefits of 2022’s themes of relationship, community, service, and hope. According to numerologist Josh Siegel, the remainder of 2022 can offer opportunities for inner growth and deeper connections with others.

What is special about the number 2022?

For some numerology 101, with respect to examining numbers of a calendar year, the first two digits set the stage for the year, while the last two digits direct that influence in a particular manner. The base number 20, which kicked off in the year 2000 and will remain significant through 2099, carries an energy of “opposition from two contending forces with the challenge to find common ground,” Siegel says. “Yet, the higher spiritual message of the 20 is that we are in this together and not so separate.”

These big lessons of dissolving the illusion of separateness and finding balance and harmony definitely comes with growing pains, Siegel says, which were felt very strongly in 2020, due to the pandemic, widespread public reckoning with systemic racism, divisive presidential election, and more. “We all were forced to think of not only ourselves but the person next to us,” he says. “It demanded cooperation and reminded us of ‘I am my brother’s keeper.’ However, it also galvanized opposition against government influence or control. It widened the divide even further for some.”

What does the number 2022 mean spiritually?

Before we dive into the spiritual meaning of 2022, a quick refresher on angel numbers might be in order. Angel numbers are repeating number sequences that you happen upon randomly; this might be seeing a clock that reads 3:33, an overpass sign that says Exit 444, or buying your morning cup of coffee for $5.55. According to numerology, these repeated numbers hold spiritual significance and hold messages for us that the universe thinks we may need to hear.

The number 2022 has the angel number 222 hidden inside. The number 222 is one of balance, hope, commitment, and trust. This number tells us to relax and be present in the current moment.

“It’s about giving and receiving in equal measure,” certified numerologist Novalee Wilder told us in a previous piece for Well+Good. “Seeing lots of twos tells you to have fun and let go. Don’t overthink your next steps.”

What was the spiritual significance of 2/22/22 this year?

When it comes to repeated numbers in dates, numerology suggests that a continued succession of the same digit can hold incredible spiritual significance. As with angel numbers stated above, repeated numbers can be the universe’s way of sharing a message with us.

On February 22 this year, you may have noticed a need for compromise, teamwork, or cooperation throughout the day. That’s because the number 2 is centered around our relationships and intuitions.

The repetition of six twos back to back reflected our need for good communication and teamwork, Johanna Aúgusta previously told Well+Good. “This day is a great one to reflect on how we communicate with our loved ones, and to seek to maintain an open-heart connection,” Aúgusta said.

What is the Universal Year Number for 2022?

For those that don’t know, each year has a universal year number, and you can find that number by adding up the digits of the year. The Universal Year Number for 2022 then, is six.

All Universal Year Numbers carry different energies and can provide an inside look into what the year will demand of us. The number 6 carries a nurturing energy; the digit even looks like a pregnant belly. According to Astro Style, the year 2022 is figuratively pregnant with possibilities, especially in regards to public service, giving back, and justice.

As Siegel previously mentioned, the combination of the numbers 2 and 0 amplify themes of balance, harmony, and togetherness. The number 6 forces us to focus on our relationships, taking a good look at our home life and family dynamics. Rather than focusing on our freedoms and personal wants and desires, 2022 is all about putting the collective first. Businesses and organizations that serve the community are expected to flourish this year, as are eco-conscious initiatives.

What can we expect from the rest of 2022?

According to Siegel, we’ll start to feel more of 2022’s influence in October. The number 22, he says, is a “master builder” in numerology, meaning it's associated with building a base or structure. The focus of 2022 is all about getting back to normalcy and rebuilding our lives, and last year, Siegel predicted that some sort of infrastructure bill will be instituted to help us do so; turns out, he was right on the money.

As we inch closer to the holiday season, themes of service and giving back will continue to grow stronger. Choosing to focus on family and community rather than endeavors of the self can help you reap the most out of 2022.

Balance, particularly in work and relationships, is another big 2022 theme to keep in mind for the rest of the year. Siegel says it may require a bit more effort to not to be pulled in one direction or another. That said, he notes that 22’s energy can be powerful when it comes to work-related events. So, folks who think big and are willing to put in the work could see success and growth in that area.

Although good things are brewing according to the numerology meaning of 2022, Siegel warns that we’ll likely still continue to feel the oppositional energy that took hold of us in 2021. This is why doing our part to help cultivate more balance in our lives continues to be important.

“It’s really up to us to bring balance to our own lives and bring boundaries to bear if need be,” Siegel says. “We can all do our part to find whatever common ground we can and work together to build a better home and community. That’s easier said than done considering the circumstances, but we are meant to learn from these deeply challenging times.”
