Ultimate Guide to Numerology Numbers

The Ultimate Guide to the Meaning of Numerology Numbers

In numerology, each number serves as an archetype. When you understand the archetype, you have insights into the strengths and weaknesses of that number. You can use this insight to better understand people and their motives and behaviors.

A basic numerology chart has a life path number, a maturity number, a soul urge (aka Heart’s Desire) number, a personality number, and a personal year number. The number figured for each of those categories tells you about that category. For example, a number three life path tells you that a person is here to learn about things associated with the number three archetype. In contrast, a number three personality number tells you that a person’s personality mimics the three archetypes.

I now want to look at twelve numerology archetypes and their meanings.

Numerology Number 1

Numerology Number 1 – Selfish Leaders

The symbolism of numerology number 1 is a lone figure standing upright and at attention, ready to brace himself against all manners of attack. Though they are alone, they are confident, brave, and willing to deal with all aspects of the harsh unknown world around them.

Positive Personality Aspects of Numerology Number 1
In numerology personality, number 1 is a born leader. However, they may only embrace that aspect of their character much later. A person born as a number 1 typically has a personality where he takes his responsibility of protecting and guiding others very seriously. There is a high need for freedom of thought and action, and most refuse to let another person stand in their way of achieving success.

Many number ones are highly creative and very original. Regarding numerology personality analysis, number 1 will seek out the spotlight most of the time. Additionally, almost all number ones will strive to obtain power and control in their personal and professional lives. Courage and Willpower are seen in abundance, as is the ability to perform well solo, without supervision.

These individuals are usually incredibly healthy in mind, body, and spirit.

The number 1 is learning that constant and consistent perseverance leads to correct action.

Number one is also learning that the right action leads to rewards.

Finally, it is essential to understand that the number 1 represents the beginnings of all types. We associate the number 1 with the creative intelligence of the universe. The major card, the Magician, represents the number one in the tarot cards.

Negative Personality Aspects of Numerology Number 1
When it comes to numerology personality, the negative aspect of number 1 that is most frustrating is its selfishness. The majority of number ones become so self-involved that they forget about others. Those who help and assist the number one with their goals are the people most apt to see this selfishness.

Besides selfishness, other negative aspects that the number one would be wise to work on include the nasty habits of anger and aggression. Many act before thinking, and that action can be irrational in the heat of the movement.

The personality trait that number one is learning the most is being a team player, which many leaders find a hard lesson. Number 1 must realize that a leader is only a leader if they have a group of people willing to follow their lead. Thus, of the entire team, the leader is the person that must be the best team player of all.

Finally, there is often a strong aura of stubbornness and defiance found within the personality of certain people born under number one. Learning to be flexible and not to fight everyone over everything is essential for them too.

Numerology Number 2

Numerology Number 2 – Codependent Peacemakers

The symbolism of numerology number two is two people standing side by side. It looks like the astrological sign of Gemini. Two lone individuals come together to form a unit. Neither is alone, and both must work together in unison and unity. As long as they work together, everything remains balanced. However, balance is disruptive when the two begin to pull in opposite directions, and the unity collapses.

Positive Personality Aspects of Numerology Number 2
In numerology personality, number two is the peacemaker. The number two is diplomatic and has a strong intuitive knowledge of what other people want and need. The number two is sensitive. They typically don’t handle criticism very well, and, in fact, most go out of their way to try and avoid it. Most people born under number two are patient and good at cooperating with others.

Many number twos are gentle and romantic, focusing on mental rather than physical energy. They come across as almost psychic with a solid ability to quickly understand others. Most people with a number two personality tend to be very loving and can persuade others to follow their quiet lead. Though many number twos don’t appear to be leaders, almost all people born under the number two have leadership potential. They just choose to support the leader instead of actually deciding to be the leader. Should that leader ask them to do something and take charge, the two types will do so without question, and most are very good at leadership.

The number two is learning that the best way to relate to other people is calm, still, and totally tolerant. Number two also discovers that when they take on other people’s burdens willingly and without complaint, they follow their correct path in this lifetime.

Finally, it is essential to understand that the number two represents balance. Almost all people connected to number two are learning how to find the secret to balancing their own life and the lives of others. The number two is associated with receptivity and is best represented in the tarot cards by the major arcana card, the High Priestess.

Negative Personality Aspects of Numerology Number 2
The negative aspect of numerology number two that is most frustrating is its need for dependency on others. Of all the numbers within numerology, number two usually ends up being the most codependent. No matter how timid or shy the numerology number two appears, the need for dependence upon others tends to be the biggest drawback.

Other negative aspects of number two include indecisiveness. Those born with a two in their numerology chart have problems making up their mind, even with a small decision. Two people are learning to stand up, to be decisive, and not subordinate to every authority figure they encounter. When the two starts to become an authority figure, that’s when they discover and begin to develop their true inner power.

The number two is learning that being alone doesn’t necessarily mean that a person has to be lonely. The world is filled with many good-hearted people that would love to develop new and profound friendships. The number two can enjoy and truly benefit from these friendships, provided they can keep themselves from becoming over-critical of their new friends.

Finally, learning to stay positive and upbeat is essential for numerology number two. Many twos have a tendency to sink into depression or to become malicious when they feel they have been wronged. Balance and justice aren’t always the same thing; number two is learning balance and justice’s fundamental aspects and meanings.

Numerology Number 3

Numerology Number 3 – Moody Cheerleaders

We represent the symbolism of the numerology number 3 by a union of two being expanded to include a third person. With this expansion comes extra help and the ability to have more expressive power. A cheerleader can help inspire and cheer on the other two.

Positive Personality Aspects of Numerology Number 3
Of all the numbers in numerology, the number three tends to be the most expressive. These people were born to bring joy into the lives of others. In numerology, the number 3 tends to be the most creative. With a healthy, active imagination, these people were born to bring that vision to life by whatever means. Additionally, these individuals have a childlike enthusiasm for the world, making learning and exploring critical.

Numerology number 3 is known as the cheerleader amongst the other numbers. These are the people that are capable of inspiring their friends, co-workers, employers, and almost anyone else. The number three is known for using its gift of words to motivate others. Like Leo, they want to make everyone happy. They have trouble understanding why someone wouldn’t want to be excited about the great things coming.

In numerology, the number 3 is learning not to spread their energy too thin but to live in the movement and enjoy each activity as it comes. No matter how difficult the beginning of a situation may seem, each brings new joys and experiences leading to personal growth.

In relationships, it’s essential to keep a playful and upbeat tone when courting a number 3. These individuals value comedy and a good sense of humor, and most tend to light up the room when they are in a good mood. Just remember, some people born into the number three tend to cover up pain using laughter.

In the Tarot, the number three is represented by the Empress. This card symbolizes wealth and reminds number 3 that much abundance awaits them for the inspiring work they do around the world.

Negative Personality Aspects of Numerology Number 3
Like all numbers, the number 3 also has its bad points. The one point, above all others, which the number 3 must be most careful with, is their tendency toward exaggeration.

Exaggeration is a means to expand upon their story. The number three usually seeks to make stories the most exciting and entertaining. Sometimes, the three believe that a little exaggeration can provide their audience with what they need. The number 3 doesn’t always think about the fact that many people get offended by those little white lies, and most would much prefer the inspiration not to be overdone.

Other negative traits which the numerology number 3 is known to include:

• Laziness
• Impracticality
• A Critical Tongue
• Childishness

Besides all this, number three tends to go through periods of intense moodiness. One moment the number 3 may seem happy, and seconds later, the number three can appear as though it is decaying in sorrow. Learning not to use their natural empathy to pick up on the emotions of others is an essential lesson for threes. With a bit of psychic self-defense and energy protection, the moodiness of those born into the number three can be mellowed out. This makes the lives of these proud cheerleaders more balanced and less stressful while allowing their friends the relief of knowing they won’t have to deal with such constant moodiness.

Numerology Number 4

Numerology Number 4 – Boring Builders

The symbolism of the numerology number four is represented best by the square. The square represents the order of the universe. It is a stable and sturdy structure. As long as all four sides of the square remain effective and work together, it represents the idea of stability. Still, when one of those sides disappears or collapses, the rest of the structure is at risk of crumbling and falling apart.

Positive Personality Aspects of Numerology Number 4
No number in numerology is more stable and steady than the number four. In numerology personality analysis, the number four people are the ones that have a tendency to hold everything together. No matter how stressful or difficult a crisis may seem, these dull builders are born to know how to handle an emergency calmly, coolly, and collectedly.

The number four is also efficient and methodical. A firm determination resides within these people. Discipline, stamina, and the ability to stick with things to the bitter end are all positive personality traits of numerology number four. One thing is for sure, those blessed to have a four-person in their life can be sure that they’ll have a strong sense of security that will consistently follow them.

Regarding relationships, the number four people are very down-to-earth and are typically highly trustworthy. Sure, they may take life very seriously. Still, this seriousness enables them to deal with all manners of hardships in a way that makes it appear as though they handle such difficulties with ease. Also, fours are known for helping bring the organization into the life of a partner or friend.

Finally, fours are builders. A beginning numerologist should note that fours are fantastic at helping to make a plan and put it into action. When the number one and number four combine their efforts, they can accomplish almost anything, provided the number four can allow the number one to be the leader. The number four gets great pleasure from putting in hard work and dedication, especially when they see the fruits of their hard work develop into rewards.

Important to note that almost all number fours are learning to suspend belief. Since many number fours have somewhat analytical and well-organized minds, they can get caught up in too much technicality (be it in the scientific or financial world). Learning to have faith and to be open to all possibilities is something the number four is learning. Most fours are also learning that when you hold things together for other people, those people you’ve helped won’t be there to help in return. Thus, all real friends are to be greatly treasured.

The Emperor is the tarot card which represents the number four. This card is a reminder of the importance of being in control of both the environment and emotions. When emotions get out of control, wrong decisions happen. Taurus is the astrological sign often associated with this number.

Negative Personality Aspects of Numerology Number 4
So what are the negative personality traits of numerology number four? Well, for starters, most people born into life as a number four will appear dull to the people around them. Number fours have all sorts of exciting hobbies; it’s just unfortunate that most people they associate with don’t understand their hobbies. Perhaps others would understand better if the four weren’t spending the majority of their life working.

When fours do not apply their energy in the correct direction (building something important or holding people together), they typically feel without joy and, at times, gloomy. This mood can damper the social spirit of the people who sincerely want to hang out with them. If the number four learned to talk more and not be repressive, they would naturally avoid many problems they develop in relationships.

Another annoying thing about numerology number four is that people born as number four tend to have firmly fixed opinions on what is right and what is wrong. Additionally, they have a habit of stubbornly defending their position, even when they logically know they are wrong. Yes, it takes quite a miracle to convince number four to change their opinion.

Just as fours can almost always be counted on to be dependable in a relationship, most relationship partners can depend upon their number four mate to have so much common sense that they sometimes seem void of any and all emotions. Unlike the number three, which can become overly wrapped up in emotional conflicts and drama, the number four would rather avoid the drama altogether. They’d also genuinely enjoy helping their friends to prevent emotionally dramatic situations.

If a person is studying numerology, they’ll realize that people with a vital four placement in their numerology chart become easily frustrated when others do not take their work or jobs seriously. To number four, there is a time and place for everything, and working is not the time or place to waste time and mess around. That’s a waste of time, which is offensive to these people. Work hard, take the job seriously, and the number four will allow a person a rare chance to see them kick back and have fun, a treat in and of itself.

Numerology Number 5

Numerology Number 5 – Spirited Changers

The symbolism of numerology number five is represented best by an outsider watching a group of four at work. There is a realization by the outsider that all labor and no play results in stagnation. The fifth person attempts to change the patterns of the other four and help them approach life from a different perspective.

Positive Personality Aspects of Numerology Number 5
Need some fun and excitement in life? Seek out people born with the number five in their numerology charts. Spirited is the best positive word to describe someone born as numerology number five. These individuals are great at acting in an active, courageous, and dynamic manner. They are sure to bring joy, excitement, and adventure into the lives of their romantic partners, co-workers, employers, and friends.

Speaking of romance, people born with the number five attract people to them naturally. They are magnets. Others can’t resist their natural charm and outgoing nature. Additionally, all that energy that a number five has just can’t help but make others feel alive and ready to enjoy the world.

Most people born with a number five in their numerology chart also have a tendency to be able to adapt naturally to most situations. They change so naturally because they have curious minds and are good at communicating their wants, desires, likes, and dislikes. Many fives are learning to use their adaptive skills to wait before rushing into a situation. When the number five learns patience, they can better channel all their energy into something productive and progressive.

A beginning numerologist must tell people who know someone with a number five in their chart to allow them freedom. Fives love to explore and can keep the party going for hours, but they absolutely can not stand to be controlled, bossed around, or told what to do. The restriction does not go well with the number five adult, yet it can serve as a great motivator to a child born with a five in their chart.

The tarot card representing this number is the Hierophant. The astrological sign is usually Gemini (though some claim that certain types of Leos fit the description better). Why Gemini? It is because of their air ability to both adapt and thrive in a social atmosphere.

As a final note, these people typically do not like change, despite the fact they are among the best at dealing with change and knowing when to create and bring changes into the lives of others.

Negative Personality Aspects of Numerology Number 5
In many ways, the negative personality traits of numerology number five are the same as some of their best positive personality traits. For example, when viewed from the opposing perspective, change can represent an individual that avoids changing or forces others to make changes before they are truly ready to do so.

Likewise, the numerology number five can be too spirited at times. Not in an energetic, vigorous, and courageous way but in a more rebellious and impulsive fashion. When the number five is acting from this perspective, many would be better off just avoiding it and not getting involved in battles with them.

Another thing that’s typically associated with numerology number five is addictions. Alcohol, drugs, eating, and everything in-between is often found connected to people with a strong representation of five in their numerological chart. Note that the number five may or may not have the addiction. Still, they will eventually attract people who do have addictions. The number five is learning that they cannot change and save every person with an addiction.

Most people born into a number five’s life will have ample opportunity to be sexually active. In fact, it is not unusual for those born as number five to enjoy a dash of variety in their bedroom life. Just remember, too much of anything can be a bad thing.

According to the Complete Idiot’s Guide to Numerology by Kay Lagerquist and Lisa Lenard, the following are some additional points to keep in mind. This is especially true when people want to befriend or be romantically involved with the number five:

• Avoid telling the number five person they cannot change things
• Avoid saying to five personalities that they are inflexible
• Do recognize and praise fives for their efforts
• Don’t label fives
• Do allow number fives to be affectionate and loving
• Do return the love and affection often
• Don’t rush numerology number five into making commitments, as they dislike being tied down

By following those suggestions, a person will be able to befriend a number five-person and have solid friendships and relationships with them. Additionally, because five-personality people are usually so spirited and upbeat, they make some of the best friends anyone could ask for.

Numerology Number 6 – Responsible Martyrs

The symbol for numerology’s number six is a pentagram with an individual standing in the center. Each point of the pentagram represents one of the five elements (earth, air, fire, water, and spirit). These are believed to encompass the whole world. With an individual standing in the center of the pentagram, there is a feeling they are responsible for all aspects of the surrounding world.

The alternative symbolism for six is a pregnant woman with a prominent belly. This symbol denotes nurturing and love, along with the responsibility of caring for family and children.

Positive Personality Aspects of Numerology Number 6
The one keyword beginning numerology students should memorize for number six is responsibility. Of all the numbers, numerology number six is the most responsible. This keyword is further expanded upon by the tarot card “The Lovers” – the number six tarot card. The card speaks of the difficulty of making important decisions and the fear of having all the responsibility for making the decision on the six’s shoulders.

The secondary keyword that most numerology students should remember is family. Of all the numbers, the number six usually stays closely tied to and connected to their family. It may be their birth family, or it could be the family they marry in. Many times it is actually both. This is the number where raising the kids and keeping the family together is vital. One could even say that it is part of life’s mission. Almost every number six will marry; it is more about when they will marry than if they will marry.

From a romantic perspective, numerology number six has high standards for its partner. Still, they only have those high standards because they care and want the best in life for their loved ones. Additionally, there’s usually plenty of love and respect to go along with those high standards. If a person plans to date a number six, one must realize that harmony is essential to this individual. Also, mind the manners. A standard number six won’t handle swearing and rudeness very well.

From an astrological perspective, the personality of the six is similar to a Cancer and a Libra combination. One would find the nurturing and emotional care of the Cancer and the eye for beauty and diplomacy in Libra. Both are family-oriented, with a solid dedication to their family.

Career possibilities for number six include anything that involves healing or teaching, such as an emergency care worker or dispatcher, crisis worker, counselor, or a position in management. In other words, anything where there is a significant amount of responsibility.

Negative Personality Aspects of Numerology Number 6
Knowing that family is one of the most essential things to numerology number six makes it easy to understand how this number can interfere with family matters. Number six truly desires to help and fix aspects of the family that are broken. The problem is that in attempting to do so, they usually end up butting in and interfering.

Friends of the number six should understand that when an issue is mentioned to the number six, they often want to fix it. Thus, if a person doesn’t honestly want the help, they shouldn’t say the problem to a number six.

This is also one of the numbers that can represent a codependent relationship primarily because of their strong family connections.

Many sixes have strong memories of emotional experiences. This means they don’t forgive and forget easily. In truth, most individuals born as a number six can’t forgive past wrongs. Many lifelong feuds and problems occur because of this tendency.

Finally, numerology number six may experience problems receiving love. Despite being great at giving love and nurturing, they aren’t so good at accepting and enjoying affection. Numerology number six is learning that sometimes it’s okay and normal to receive love and pampering from another.

Numerology Number 7

Numerology Number 7 – Truth Seekers

The number seven is associated with many symbols. Among the most well-known are the seven chakras and the Masonic symbol of the triangle above a square.

The chakras represent physical, emotional, mental, intuitive, and spiritual balance and harmony. In contrast, the triangle above the square represents spiritual matter coming into physical manifestation. This triangle above the square has long been a Masonic symbol and, in fact, can be found in many arcane schools and organizations.

The astrological signs Pisces, Scorpio, and Virgo, make up the typical personality complex of sevens, but Sagittarius (also known as the truth seeker) is often falsely associated with the number seven.

Positive Aspects of Numerology Number 7’s Personality
All number sevens are learning the skill of organization. A person born into the life of a truth seeker either has excellent organization skills, or this person will be learning about organization skills. That’s purely physical; when a numerologist looks at a more spiritual side of the number seven, there is a connection to magical powers and mastering the spiritual side of life.

If a person is born into the life of the number seven, they are here to learn about specialization. It doesn’t matter what the person with a seven in their numerology chart chooses to specialize in, as long as they love what they do and enjoy it. This individual will experience a degree of inner peace and accomplishment.

Careers well suited to sevens include business, science, religion, teaching, and occult matters. All these careers involve some aspect of research – an activity enjoyed by the average truth seeker seven. The seven possess a sharp mind that always seeks the truth. Many number sevens possess the natural wisdom that others desire. Most people born as a number seven eventually find that they have some degree of mastery over the spiritual side of life.

Suppose a person wants to befriend the number seven. In that case, they should be advised by a numerologist that many truth seekers will require lots of privacy and alone time. The number seven can be an active social force to reckon with when rested and at the top of their game. By the night’s end, however, sevens need to retreat for several hours — perhaps even days — of isolation.

Finally, sevens seek to know and understand the truth of any situation, especially those things connected to the mystery of life. This is where their interest and ability for in-depth research come into play. In the case of any answer that the truth seeker doesn’t know or hasn’t personally experienced, they investigate until they find their own personal truth.

Negative Aspects of Numerology Number 7’s Personality
According to Kay Lagerquist and Lisa Lenard in their book, The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Numerology, published by Amaranth in 1999, “The challenge of the inward seven is to have friends, marriage, or any relationship with another human being.” Isolation is a major stumbling block for the number seven.

This isolation that the number seven seeks is also one of its most disabling traits. Isolation can sometimes go on for days, even weeks, and months. Most sevens will claim they are renewing and/or gaining spiritual enlightenment. Still, truth seekers are also avoiding the real world.

If the number seven isn’t careful, this isolation can develop into paranoia and a hypercritical nature. This will turn people, even friends, away very quickly, and many a seven find they are doomed to lead a lonely life. Additionally, in romantic situations, isolation and the need for personal time will drive a romantic partner crazy.

This number may also need to learn to tone down selfish motivation and avoid becoming egocentric. Many sevens will put up a smoke screen and claim that they aren’t egotistical. Still, many truth seekers’ friends and peers will see right through that smoke screen into the real motivation. A motivation that may be very self-serving. This, of course, isn’t true once they reach a certain level of enlightenment.

The number seven must learn to handle and maintain good healthy relationships before they can reach their spiritual potential and fully understand their inner self.

Numerology Number 8

Numerology Number 8 – The CEO

In numerology, the number eight is associated with the infinity symbol. This symbol, the figure eight turned on its side, shows the power of the number eight – infinity and the ability to continue forever. Eights are typically phenomenal at creating lasting legacies, and most are well remembered long after death.

The two circles of the number eight symbolize the link between heaven and earth. Unlike the person considered a seven in numerology, which has mastered the spiritual and should focus on the physical, the eight has mastery over the material and needs to concentrate more on the spiritual aspects of life.

Capricorn primarily makes up the typical personality complex of eight because it is focused on work and business. However, some people will look at the negative personality traits of number eight as more associated with Scorpio.

Positive Aspects of Numerology Number 8’s Personality
Success and power are the words linked to the numerology number eight. This is more than success on a superficial level. Instead, it is a success on a financial level! Most people born as a number eight — often called the CEO of numerology — will gain and lose much money and power throughout life.

The personality trait of competency is one that nearly all number eights possess. A numerologist knows that if a person wants to get something done right, all they have to do is find and bargain with someone following the number eight’s path. The CEO will rarely do anything for free. Still, once the right price has been agreed upon, it can be assured that the task will be completed on time and nearly flawlessly.

Because of this solid business-oriented mind, people born onto the CEO path feel at home within the business world. Other careers and fields suited for the number eight include stockbroker, real estate, the military, law, financial analyst and adviser, archeologist, management, politics, social work, athletics, and anything involving using power, controlling others and their resources, or mastery of the self.

Perhaps a unique ability is the eight’s talent for being able to size up another person. The person born onto the path of number eight can take in an individual they’ve just met, and they can determine that person’s greatest strengths and weaknesses. They’re excellent judges of character and are great when it comes to coaching and honestly evaluating people. Never ask a number eight for their opinion if the hard cold truth will be upsetting or unsettling.

Regarding the positive aspects of relationships, the CEO provides financial security to their partner. Eight can be unselfishly generous and loyal to people they love or admire. Besides, even if the eight were to cheat on their partners, it is doubtful that those partners would ever find out about each other. Thus, when dating the CEO, it’s best to have a don’t ask/don’t tell policy with them.

In fact, some of the best dating advice regarding the CEO is to savor every moment spent with this influential, romantic, and seductive person. For they will spoil a date unlike any other. However, when apart, entirely forget them and pretend they never existed. Feelings won’t be hurt as often that way.

Should an eight ask for marriage, they’re almost always serious. At that point, one hardly ever has to worry about losing the CEO’s love and affection, for they have now chosen a partner for life. Only in the direst of circumstances will they terminate such an important agreement.

Negative Aspects of Numerology Number 8’s Personality
The number eight personality is the one numerological number where the negative traits can actually outweigh the positive attributes. Most numbers have a relatively even mixture of negative and positive characteristics. Still, in the case of the CEO, the negative may end up dominating unless proper dedication is given to walking the path of love and light.

Numerologists must understand that because so much attention is given to power and control, the number eight is the one personality type that can become the most corrupted. Those who avoid walking the path of love become selfish or egocentric. In this case, they can develop the characteristics of ruthlessness, prejudice, impatience, anger, intimidation, manipulation, and self-righteousness.

In relationships, the downside of the CEO can become controlling, demanding, sadistic, dominant, and have unintentional and irrational jealousy issues. A personality that falls into this mode of thinking will also usually seek to severely punish (even their mate) for what they feel is wrongdoing or injustice. The abuse cycle can become an average side effect in these cases.

Another downside of the eight’s personality involves repression, isolation, and guilt-ridden feelings of inadequacy. When they are not accomplishing anything and are not contributing to the well-being of others, they seek out isolation. They do this to brood, sulk, and attempt to deal with their guilty feelings. In cases like this, it’s best to leave the number eight alone unless they specifically ask for help, which will often never occur.

Numerology Number 9 – The Humanitarian

The number nine is known in numerology as a symbol of completeness. It represents success and achievement and endings of all types.

The astrological signs Pisces, Scorpio, and Aquarius, make up the typical personality complex of nines. They are represented by the tarot card The World, which promotes universal healing.

Mother Teresa and Mahatma Gandhi had nine life paths, and it’s from their lives that we can actually understand the loving, compassionate, and generous nature of the number 9.

Aspects of Numerology Number 9’s Personality
As previously mentioned, the number nine is considered the humanitarian. It’s common for people with nine personalities to want to help the world and the people within their community. Most people born onto a 9 life path are selfless, generous, and tolerant of others.

If a person is born into the life of the number nine, they are here to learn to understand others and work toward the common good of all. Additional lessons include learning to let go of the past and forgiving others and the self. Many times numerologists will say that one of the characteristics of the number nine is that they need to learn to clean out their closet. This means that people with a nine path realize that they must let go of all that they have stored up, forgive, and focus instead on the future.

These individuals have a strong creative side and often come across as charming. Additionally, Hans Decoz and Tom Monte, in their book Numerology published by Avery Publishing Group in 1994, state on page 31 that the number nine will spend their life trying to realize a Utopian dream. They will sacrifice money, time, and energy for a better world. It is through giving that much success and satisfaction comes.

Careers well suited to nines include interior decorating, law, art, judgment, ministering, healing, and photography. These careers involve some aspect of creative ability or desire for social justice.

Suppose a person seeks to befriend the number nine. In that case, they should be advised by a numerologist that many humanitarians have a strong faith in something more significant and don’t tolerate their faith being questioned. Additionally, they need to love and be loved, as this is a substantial part of their life lessons.

It’s also important to understand that many people with a nine on their numerology chart will have difficulty making decisions. This is mainly because they don’t want to hurt others. Friends and romantic partners need to understand this, be willing to offer their own opinions, and take charge from time to time.

People born into the number nine are also learning that the realities of life aren’t always as good and grand as dreams are. Supportive friends and romantic partners need to make sure they encourage their number 9 friends and simultaneously help them stay grounded in reality.

Because of life’s realities and the need for peace, many numerology number nine people find that they have a solid connection to animals and the natural world. Having a pet is a must for people with a number nine 9 life path. Within this animal companion, they will find they can most easily confide their most profound and authentic emotions. Likewise, being out and part of nature will help many find the inner peace they desire.

Numerology Number 11

Numerology Number 11 – Spiritual Messengers

The symbolism of the numerology number eleven is represented best by an angel. Angels are heavenly creatures that are blessed with the ability to offer insights. Many are known as God’s messengers, and as such, they communicate universal messages. The spiritual messengers are usually considered gifts to their friends, romantic partners, and community.

Positive Personality Aspects of Numerology Number 11
Numerology number eleven is one of the numbers known as a master number. As a master number, this number vibrates at a higher frequency than other numbers. As such, there is lots of power that comes with this master number. It is primarily due to this power that many master number elevens achieve fame (though not always on a large scale) during their lifetime.

For master number eleven to make the most of its power, the person wielding it will need to focus on self-mastery and perfecting their talents, skills, and abilities. Like the one, there is natural leadership ability; like the two, there is a need to find and bring balance to oneself.
In numerology, the number eleven is known for its keen sensitivity, empathic ability, and intuitive perception. These individuals are here to inspire others. They usually offer the information and messages their guides, higher self, and inner voice provide. They are here to uplift humanity, which is a demanding role to fulfill, but one which brings with it a great deal of external and internal reward.

From an astrological perspective, this number is like combining the long-term and often prophetic vision of Sagittarius with the humanitarian efforts of Aquarius. To learn about the number eleven is to know about peace. Numerology number eleven is about learning to bring peace to other people and find inner peace. In addition to learning about peace, those studying the number eleven will see that this number is associated with daily tests on honesty and integrity.

Master number eleven is also filled with dreams and ideals they seek to practice here on the earth plane. In relationships, this number usually reverts to the number two (1 + 1 = 2). It acts like the two, though they can be just as spiritually insightful and prophetic with their friends and romantic partners as they can be with the world.

Career possibilities include the minister, psychic, occultist, astrologer, teacher, philosopher, and anything that uses the talents of these professions.

Negative Personality Aspects of Numerology Number 11
Being at such a high vibration is tough. In fact, according to Kay Lagerquist and Lisa Lenard in their book The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Numerology, “The 11/2 walks the fine line between greatness and self-destruction. This number can be given over to fear and phobias or soar to the heights of the enlightened.” (pg 166)

Master number eleven is associated with being hyper-critical of one’s own situations and talents. Self-expectations are high in this number, and those ruled by the number eleven should learn to make those self-expectations a little more realistic. When expectations are practical and can be achieved, there is little worry that the numerology number eleven will fall prey to self-destruction.

Individuals with a birth chart containing the numerology number eleven should also try to be careful with their planning skills. When there are no plans for the future and no direction, these individuals can become overly frustrated and begin to lose confidence. It’s not unusual for lost number elevens to find themselves sinking into the despair of depression.

Another weak point that numerology number eleven is associated with is the need to be cautious with diet and the nervous system. This is unusually the case when a person has the eleven life path. Even without the number appearing in the life path, the average number eleven has a susceptible physical body that needs lots of nourishment in food and physical affection. A balanced diet is necessary; otherwise, the nervous system can get out of whack.

Because of the weak and erratic nervous system, elevens usually can’t handle large crowds of people. Most are introverted and need some personal alone time to recharge their batteries. This alone time is also used to gather and sort through their thoughts.

A person ruled by numerology number eleven, as a spiritual messenger, tends to have a strongly intuitive mind. They can be very psychic. The number eleven must learn when to offer their insights and when to ethically keep those ideas to themselves.

After all, as hard as it is to believe, only some people want help. In fact, most people would rather wallow in their own self-pity than do something about their problems. The job of master number eleven, the spiritual messenger, is to pass along information and insights but not worry about if others choose to act on the information. Psychic development studies would be suitable for them.

Numerology Number 22 – The Master Builder

In numerology, the number 22 is known as the “master builder.” It is usually symbolized by a mason or some craftsman working hard and diligently on a large-scale project. They seem to know exactly what’s needed to make the next big step in completing a large-scale project. They aren’t afraid to spend time working on the project until it has reached its maximum potential.

Positive Personality Aspects of Numerology Number 22
In numerology, the number 22 is considered the most talented and successful of all the numbers. Combine the positive astrological traits of Capricorn, Libra, and Virgo, and you get an individual with the characteristics of the number twenty-two.

Like Virgo, the master builder is service oriented. The number twenty-two seeks to help others in any way they possibly can. They do this with their intuitive abilities and also through natural leadership skills. All number ones would do well to find a 22 to be connected to and spend time around. Those learning about leadership from these natural leaders would know a great deal.

The diplomatic ability of the number 22 will never cease to amaze numerologists. It’s like taking the delicate balancing act that Libra does and amplifying it. The number twenty-two seeks to bring balance and harmony into the lives of everyone and will work hard to make it happen.

Speaking of hard work, the master builder seems to have the work ethic of a Capricorn – always starting at the bottom and working their way to the top. So competent and confident in what they do. When a twenty-two personality is around, things will get organized, planned, and executed and reach their fullest potential.

The number 22 can need help finding good solid relationships. Once they have found a life mate, they will usually be loyal and forever attached to the life partner. The number 22 needs to seek out those who can understand their unique gifts and vision and who will follow their lead and support them every step of the way.

Career possibilities that are best for the number 22 include anything in business or politics and anything associated with teaching or helping others achieve their dreams.

Negative Personality Aspects of Numerology Number 22
Like all master numbers, the sensitivity that the number 22 has is a double-edged sword.
The sensitivity can provide phenomenal intuitive help, but it can also give way to sensory overload. That sensory overload can lead to a troubled life and, in worse case scenarios, illness or disease.

Control can be a real issue for number 22. Often, people born into the twenty-two life path will seek control over all aspects of life. This can drive people away and cause others to want to manipulate them. Faith in others can be challenging for people born into the twenty-two path. Still, this trait must be developed. Otherwise, this number will learn quickly that doing everything alone is virtually impossible.

The number 22 will have to learn to constructively use their energy positively while being patient with others trying to learn and keep up with twenty-two’s vision and plan. As long as a master builder can concentrate on praising others, others will almost always work hard to please and help the number twenty-two achieve.

The majority of people born into the life of a master builder have weak bodies and/or health conditions that they’ll have to work through. Once the bodies are strengthened or the energy problems are overcome, they usually won’t be a problem again.

The number 22 must learn when to break from all their complex physical, mental, and spiritual work. Anyone who works too hard will find a lack of enjoyment in life. For number twenty-two, learning to enjoy life is just as important as all the hard work and dedication they put into projects. Like a Capricorn, the 22 can appear as though they are living life backward, becoming far more joyful, easygoing, and fun to be around as they get older.

Numerology Number 33

Numerology Number 33 – The Master Healer

Number thirty-three’s symbolism is represented by Archangel Michael. This well-known angelic figure is seen as the angel of protection and guidance. Additionally, from an astrological perspective, a combination of Cancer and Pisces make up the characteristics, both good and bad, of this master number.

As a result of the strong emotional connections that are part of this master number, it is said that the number thirty-three is associated with learning the power of healing through love. The person with a life path number thirty-three is learning to become selfless and love unconditionally.

The Positive Personality Traits of Numerology Number 33
Many great personality traits come with the number thirty-three. People who have this life path number are considered by many numerologists to be walking the path of the avatar.

Kay Lagerquist and Lisa Lenard, in their book The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Numerology (Alpha Books, 1999), give a pretty good list of the significant positive personality traits that correspond to the number thirty-three. This includes:

• Intuition
• Visionary
• Sensitive
• Selfless Service
• Altruistic
• Caring
• Spiritual Nurtures
• Mystical
• Sympathetic
• Tenderhearted
• Protective
• Forgiving

It’s easy to see that this master number has the gifts needed to work with humanity on a large scale. It’s also easy to understand why the master healer has so many people who look up to them.

Negative Personality Traits of Numerology Number 33
As with all numbers in numerology, the number’s personality characteristics have positive and negative sides. This applies even to the avatar number. In the case of the master healer, it’s essential to understand that when their energy is not operating at its highest vibratory level, they act more like the number six. Thus incurring all the problems number six would have.

Additionally, Hans Decoz points out in his book (Numerology: Key to Your Inner Self) a few additional problems thirty-threes have to work to overcome. These include both codependency and compulsive lying.

The master healer can become a compulsive liar if they fall into one of two traps. The first trap involves a desire to avoid hurting other people’s feelings. The second trap includes a person’s desire to be viewed by others as “special.” In either case, the person is not living up to his full potential as a thirty-three.

In the case of codependency, the root problem is that the person needs to have the inner faith and belief that they can handle the world on their own. As a result, they attach to a capable person. Once connected, they are unable to detach because of their inner fears. The person born with this number in their chart must learn to strike out on their own and not be afraid of the world and the people in the world.

That is not an easy task for the master healer. Most have been hurt tremendously in childhood or are so sensitive to energy (more so than even the 11 and 22) that it emotionally overloads them. They feel they aren’t capable of dealing with the world’s problems. The lesson is to avoid “fixing” one person at a time. Instead, focus on larger goals and on groups of people.

Closing Remarks

Each number in numerology is associated with an archetype. That archetype is used to help a person remember and understand the traits related to the number. Combining these archetypes with specific topics allows a numerologist to go into greater detail about how those traits act when paired with that topic. So, for example, a life path of three and a life path of eleven will be very different. The personality of the seven and the character of the number one will also be different. The combination of all these numbers and topics makes a numerology chart and provides insight into personality and life patterns.
