The Universal Year is a medium-term cycle describing the general yearly trend of world influences. The general influences in the world are substantially modified by the energy put forth by the Earth's population. Although the trend of the influence can be indicated, the direction of the influence and the activated energy can't be described in advance. The Universal Year isn't geared towards finding the trend of events in the world, rather is a kind of broad background tone for a given year.
The Universal Year lasts from January 1 2021 to December 31, although to some degree, the first and last couple of months have fading influences from both year's energies.
"Numbers are the Universal language offered by the deity to humans as confirmation of the truth." St. Augustine of Hippo (A.D. 354–430)
