Many people are starting to notice synchronicities with numbers. They see 11:11 on their clocks, or 555 on the license plate in front of them, the voice mail they left was 2 minutes 22 seconds. Since at least from the time of Pythagoras people have felt there was a mathematically pattern, a numeric program behind our seeming reality. It is thought that Pythagoras, who was a genius in philosophy, mathemematics and astrology and was a genuine guru with a mystery school, developed Western numerology.
Numerology is an art and science of how to find out and make sense of the numbers that guide and make up our lives. Why do certain numbers repeat in addresses, social security numbers and phone numbers. There are more complex ways to find out what numbers are affecting you.
One main number is your unique birthday. There is a system, where you add up all the numbers, then add up the digits of that larger number to obtain the final one.This number gives us our Life Path Number or Master Number. So I was born on 04/26/1964, so 4+2+6+1+9+6+4 is 32, then you add up 3+2 and you get the number 5. Which is interesting because 5 has to do with truth, healing, science and abundance, all themes in my soul’s experience.
Your expression number is based upon all the letters of your full name, including your middle name. The letters fall under the numbers 1 through 9. So A is 1, B is 2 up to i being 9 then J goes back to one. So for instance M is the 13th letter, which is 1+3 so it is a 4, then R goes to 9 again and S starts back at 1. So in my name, Warren Andrew King, I took each letter and gave it a number, W being a 5, A a 1, R a 9 and so on, then keep adding the numbers up, so Warren is a 34 which is 3+4 or a 7, Andrew is a 29 which is 11 which is a 2, and King is 23 which is 2+3 or 5, then add 7+2+5 and you get 14 which is 1+4 or 5! Amazingly the same as my Life Path Master number, so I have a hint about what I’m here to manifest, all having to do with 5. Interesting that the letter for 5 appear in my full name 6 times out of 16 numbers, more than 1/3 of the time. If you can’t figure it out yourself, there are numerous free websites that will calculate and interpret your numerology for you.
So lets get a basic understanding of what the energy and basic personality is for each of the 9 numbers.
1 is the number of creation- the primal force from which all other numbers spring forth, it is a doer, a powerful force that produces results. The 1 tends to have a simple straightforward view of life, heedless of its many complexities. The 1 can be individualistic and independent to a fault. It will attempt to force its viewpoint on you, but has no desire to hear yours. It can be the pragmatist, conqueror and warrior. It can have a sense of honor and responsibility that demands our respect, but can be the first to defend injustice and hypocrisy as well.
2 is known as the peacemaker. The 2 is almost always gentle, tactful, diplomatic, forgiving, and non-confrontational. The 2 understands the underlying motivation driving the people around them. Thus they can navigate divergent opinions and ideas, having give and take. No wonder many psychotherapists, skilled at reading human nature have a strong 2 in their numerology. They can be patient and unassuming, not often getting recognition they deserve but they tend to hold a special place in the hearts and minds of those who know them. Number 2 is recognized for its grace, sophistication, style, and taste in art and music. Dancers often share this number. In social environments, the 2 is a good conversationalist with a witty, self-depreciating sense of humor. 2s are very intuitive and can be drawn to the occult.
So if 1 is like the father and 2 the mother then 3 is like the creative and talented child. They have a powerful need to express feelings,
ideas and visions of the imagination, coupled with an extroverted personality. So often they pursue the arts, as well as verbal creativity. They have charm, wit and a sense of humor as well as good looks and compelling charisma, so they are considered attractive. Because of this, they are often forgiven their negative traits like a lack of focus and direction, a tendency to procrastinate, an inability to finish projects and an unwillingness to take responsibility. But harder to overlook is their superficial side, a narcissistic streak, a vanity, a need to be the center of attention. To become a well-rounded, balanced and happy person, a 3 must learn discipline. We are more than one number, but those blessed with a heavy dose of 3s in their charts tend to have an easier time being happy, optimistic and playful creatures.
4 has a masculine quality, reflecting strength and stability. 4’s chief characteristics are dependability, productivity, punctuality and obedience. He is trustworthy, patient, conventional and a traditionalist .4 can be a bit boring and not much of a social person, preferring to toil in quiet obscurity. He works steadily and can be very persistent. Accomplishments and results are more important than financial reward or public recognition. Often they are humble, physically healthy and strong, neat and clean … but unremarkable in appearance. Many craftsmen and skilled laborers have the 4 prominently in their charts. He is a good provider, but demands loyalty and discipline which can be taken too far. Many 4s choose a career in the military, where their obedient, disciplined nature is right at home. They thrive with duties that involve administrative and organization work.
5 is a dynamic force, the most vibrant and freedom loving of all the digits. It is unpredictable, always in motion and constantly in need of change. The 5 is extremely independent in mind and soul, is an adventurer and risk taker, with a hard time staying in one place, one house or one relationship. Change is an absolute necessity yet can be surprisingly loyal. If there is any kind of routine involved; boredom sets in almost immediately and the 5 simply cannot put up with anything predictable or repetitive. They can adjust to anything coming their way. The 5 is versatile, adaptable, smart, progressive and tolerant. Anything conventional bores her, while she is drawn to the eccentrics and misfits of society. She is a social creature, funny and uplifting, and very good at making others feel comfortable around her. She is generally well-liked and is often surrounded with friends and acquaintances. She makes up her own mind, rebels against any and all dogmas and ideologies. A desire for instant gratification can be her downfall; add to that a sense of invulnerability, lack of discipline and restraint. So careful with drugs, alcohol, sex and other weaknesses of the flesh.
6 is the caretaker, considered the most harmonious of the single digits. Because if its loving and caring nature, it is nicknamed the motherhood/fatherhood number. The 6 is all about sacrifice, healing, protecting, and teaching others. It is the glue that keeps a family and community together. Those with a 6 focus on the young, the old, and those less fortunate. The 6 is sympathetic, favors the underdog, and has a keen sense of what is fair and just. Perceiving injustice, the 6 will sacrifice immense time and effort to set things straight. they can be graceful, warm with a good sense of humor. Many 6’s can be found in teaching, healing, counseling, construction, the legal field and law enforcement. When imbalanced they can be too involved, becoming intrusive and meddling. And because they are self sacrificing, they can become a doormat to be abused and trampled on, being easy to take advantage of.
7 is the philosopher, the seeker, the thinker, the searcher for truth. The 7 doesn’t take anything at face value — it is always trying to understand the underlying, hidden truths, knowing that nothing is exactly as it seems and that reality is often hidden behind illusions. The 7 can be intellectual, somewhat introverted, perhaps shy (not to be confused with low self-esteem), and never truly comfortable in social settings. It is spiritual but not religious, asking the age old questions of who am I, and why are we here, and will keep searching until the answers are found. 7s can be opinionated and tend to know something about everything, which can be annoying. They can be cold hearted and cruel, lacking empathy, as other’s problems don’t interest them, even as they expect other to feel for them and their own troubles.
8 has to do with balance and power and more than any other number puts an emphasis on career, business, finances and authority.
At its best, it is as spiritual as it is materialistic. The spiritual side of the 8 is practical, realistic and intelligent. It knows the difference between make-believe and genuine realizations. Although it has to do with money, it is not for its own sake, it is a tool and the 8 is generous and willing to take risks. The recognizable traits of the 8 are drive, ambition, authority, efficiency, organization, management, discipline and control. The 8 is goal-oriented, focused, has good judgment, can discriminate and is practical, a realist. The 8 tends to do well in business and in authority roles, so the military and law enforcement draw a lot of 8s. Some people change their names to get more 8’s, but watch out for the negative traits like frustration, dissatisfaction, anger, aggression, greed, intolerance, hate and insomnia.
The 9 has global awareness offering its gifts to the world at large, highlighting a mathematical and philosophical observation that is unique and revealing. It is a humanitarian, and sees no real difference between its neighbor next door and the person living in a very different culture and environment on the other side of the world. The 9 is the least judgmental of all numbers, the most tolerant and the most conscious. She has impeccable taste, is talented and creative, and can be quite eloquent when she expresses herself.
On the dark side she can be condescending, arrogant, cold and apathetic towards the suffering of others and can be egotistic, cruel, immoral and completely untouchable. They can go to this dark side when she perceives herself to have been the victim of an injustice, then she can be vindictive, unforgiving and malicious. 9 cycles suggest that you are in the final stages of a period or endeavor, that you need to empty your bucket and prepare for the new and that there are opportunities to make a difference.
In addition to the 9 individual digits there are 3 master numbers that are not further reduced. The 11, 22 and 33. People with master numbers in their name or date of birth are typically gifted with special tendencies that set them apart from the general public.
Master number 11 brings higher intuition and spiritual insight, supernatural abilities, increased sensitivity, as well as empathy and natural intelligence. The number eleven is a sign of enormous power – both mental and physical.
Master number 22 is often called the ‘Master Builder’, this is because it has the power to turn dreams into reality. It contains all the intuition and insights of the master number 11 but with added practicality and a disciplined manner.
Arguably the most influential of all numbers is the 33 which is also known as the ‘Master Teacher’. It is the most powerful because the number 33 also contains the 11 and the 22 and, therefore, upgrades these two other numbers to the top level. Master number 33 has no personal ambition, instead, they want to bring about a spiritual uplifting of all mankind. 33 is associated with complete devotion, rare wisdom and understanding without communication. A typical 33 will concentrate on humanitarian issues and give themselves entirely to a project.
This is just the very basics of numerology and besides Western styles, there are also Chaldean, Kabbalistic and Vedic numerology. Besides the life path and expression numbers, the is also the Heart’s desire, personality, hidden passion, karmic lessons and balance number. So go as deep as you want and find out what numbers you vibrate with, as the dance of these numbers determines what we see on the surface of the matrix we call our lives.
