Key Numerology Numbers for December 2021

Home » Blog » Numerology » Key Numerology Numbers for December 2021

Numerology is the study of numbers as meaningful constructs related to human consciousness.  Numbers occupy our lives in many ways, starting with number values associated with the letters of words, especially our names. 

We have the numbers of our birthday, month, and year.  Most countries have a number sequence for citizens (in the United States, it is the 9-digit Social Security Number or SSN).  Most of us have a phone number; if we drive a car, we have a number plate.  Each word and sequence of numbers reduces to a number between 1 and 9, and each of those numbers has spiritual meaning.

This article will explore the number meaning of this month and this month + this year.

The Two Numbers for Each Month

Each month of the year has two key numbers: the number of the month itself and the total of the month number plus the year number. December is the 12th month of the year, and thus a 3. December 2021 is 122021 or 8.

The Number 3 Month

According to Faith Javane and Dusty Bunker in Numerology and the Divine Triangle, the number 3 represents “scattering, freedom, entertainment, and self-expression” (41). Further, they identify this number with the 3rd card of the Major Arcana in the Tarot, the Empress. “The Empress is also an aspect of the subconscious mind. While the High Priestess, number 2, is memory, in number 3 we find the subconscious response to that memory which produces growth through imagination” (131).

The 12th month of each year is seen as a time to review our energy for the last year and work towards new personal growth for the beginning of the next year. Since this month focuses on creativity, hard work, and imagination, it is important to understand the shift from a 5 year (2021) to a 6 year (2022). In 2021, the world went through transitional energy meant to shape the next large cycle of events. The service (6) work for the upcoming year will flow out of the disruptive work of the transition (5) year.

The twelfth month of each year is seen as a time to reflect on the past year and think about what we want to start achieving with the next year. Since this month focuses on creativity, it is important to understand the shift from a 5 year (2021) to a 6 year (2022). In 2020 the stable and persistent relationships (4) were rocked by the pandemic. The transition (5) work for all our relationships and situations was the focus of 2021. How we think about service, teaching, and learning in the new and developing world order will be the focus of 2022.

The Number 8 for 12/2021

The calculation to an 8 for 12/2021 makes this a month to focus on power, leadership, responsibility, and consequences. The number 8 has five representations in a tarot deck: the Major Arcana 8, Strength; the 8 of Cups, Letting Go; the 8 of Swords, the Trapped Mind; the 8 of Pentacles, Expertise; and the 8 of Wands, Focus.

There is a leadership and determination quality to the number 8, which requires the fortitude of the Strength card to see us strive for success and overcome failure. The 8 of Cups reminds us that we must let go of relationships and feelings that no longer serve us. We all face moments of doubt and anxiety; how we deal with those moments is crucial to our development (8 of Swords). True success in life comes from mastering a skill that others value (8 of Pentacles). And lastly, we must have intense focus if we want to achieve at our highest levels (8 of Wands).

Your Number and the 3 and 8 this Month

It is rather easy to calculate your life path number; it is simply the total of your birthday reduced to a single digit. In my case, I was born 04/12/1968, which equals 31, which reduces to a 4. My life path is about working hard, establishing a solid foundation, and staying within my limits.

In relation to the number 3, I should think about how I create, and the hard work involved to see my efforts reach fruition. The number 8 reminds me that it takes time and significant effort to attain a high status in life, earn professional respect, and build a secure life.

Life Path 1

If you happen to have a life path number 1 (The Pioneer), then this month will focus on what you need to do to make sure you increase your skills (3); take a class or do some professional development. Making sure you are pursuing long-term goals (8) as the reason you are building your skills will keep you engaged and moving in a positive direction.

Life Path 2

If you happen to have a life path number 2 (The Partner), then this month you need to find some fun activities or shared tasks to do with your partner or close friends (3). It will be important for you to partner with someone who can help you achieve your long-term goals and reach higher levels of success (8).

Life Path 3

If you happen to have a life path number 3 (The Creator), then this month you should really push your creative boundaries and put extra effort into everything you do (3). This could be a breakthrough month that propels you to a much higher status and greater recognition (8) if you put in the extensive hard work.

Life Path 4

If you happen to have a life path number 4 (The Builder), then you should think about and put energy into the activities and choices that will support the long-term goals of your work or business (8). Recognizing that you need to refine or improve your skills (3) will be essential to building the base of power you want to keep you safe and secure, which will allow you to be more helpful to others.

Life Path 5

If you happen to have a life path number 5 (The Traveler), then you need to seek out your place of power (8), both physically (location-wise) and socially regarding your skills and creativity (3). If you need to “make a move”, externally or internally, this is the month to make the change.

Life Path 6

If you happen to have a life path number 6 (The Educator), then teaching what you know will help the most people because that knowledge is what gives you power in the world (8). This month will be ideal for expanding or improving your skillset (3); increasing your knowledge with an eye towards teaching what you learn to others is the best way to approach this month.

Life Path 7

If you happen to have a life path number 7 (The Mystic), then you may find your role as a mystic requires you to use your wisdom and insight in practical ways (3) as a recognized leader (8) in your community. This is not the time to operate in the background; make yourself known by promoting your wisdom and skills for proper compensation.

Life Path 8

If you happen to have a life path number 8 (The Leader), then you need to be a guiding light for the people who need to learn skills or apprentice (3) with you. Embracing your power, especially based on achievement and expertise (8), will inspire others to follow suit, allowing more and more people to reach their optimum value in society.

Life Path 9

If you happen to have a life path number 9 (The Counselor), you want to make sure your counseling skills are “up-to-date” (3). Your strong sense of direction and knowing what needs to be done (8) will also help others to “find themselves” as they try to understand how they need to come into their own power.
