The numerology number 1 is self-determined and self-sufficient.
It goes about its own business, pursues its own goals, and has no need for companionship.
The number 1 feels an urge to explore new ideas, and new physical locations. It also feels an urge to see how much more existing machinery or structures can accomplish.
The number can coexist with others but is comfortable being alone. It has no requirement for companionship or partnership.
The 1 is a doer, a powerful force that produces results and does not allow anything or anyone to limit its potential. The 1 is aggressive, a necessary energy for creating and producing. The 1 is always in the forefront: a spearpoint directing and leading others. The shape of the number 1, just like the shape of all other symbols, reflects its meaning; it walks upright with pride and purpose. Strong, determined, unwavering and with specific goals in mind, the 1 can turn dreams and ideas into reality. It pushes obstacles aside or simply drills right through them.
The numerology number 2 is all about relationships.
Teamwork, pulling together, companionship, romance, diplomacy, cooperation — all are in the number 2's realm.
The number 2 feels extremely lonely when it's by itself, no other numbers to interact with or even just exist with when no interaction is possible.
As the most feminine among all numbers, the 2 is also the most underestimated -- at least, when it comes to power and strength. After all, she is almost always gentle, tactful, diplomatic, forgiving and understanding. Certainly, she likes to keep the peace and will avoid confrontations as much as possible.
The numerology number 3 is about creative expression.
The essence of the energy the number 3 represents is creative self-expression for others to observe and appreciate. It is especially adept with visual and auditory artistic expression.
The number 3 is social. And it supports and encourages the creative expression of others.
The number 3 is like a gifted teenager who is still under the protection of its parents: a bit spoiled, certainly scattered, and perpetually in need of guidance. However, the most obvious traits of the 3 are in the creative field. A powerful need to express feelings, ideas, and visions of the imagination, coupled with an extroverted personality, makes it likely that a person with 3s in key points of their Numerology chart will seek a career in art, especially the verbal arts. His or her social skills are also excellent. Charm, wit, and a sense of humor help a 3 individual along his or her path, and if that weren't enough, good looks and compelling charisma make this "kid" particularly attractive.
The numerology number 4 is a number of focus — a focus on building a secure foundation for the future.
It can be a lot of work. 4 is adequately equipped for the work with its ability to focus on the details of the steps required to reach specific goals.
The number 4 is conscientious.
It may be blunt when asked for opinions regarding the execution of current projects or the feasibility of new projects. The number 4 does see the details and responds according to how it perceives things.
The 4 is without a doubt masculine, reflecting strength and stability. His chief characteristics are dependability, productivity, punctuality and obedience. He is trustworthy, patient, conventional and a traditionalist. He is a bit boring and not much of a social person, preferring to toil in quiet obscurity. He works steadily and can be very persistent. He finds great satisfaction in his accomplishments and favors results over financial reward or public recognition. He is humble, dresses conservatively and blends in with his surroundings.
The numerology number 5 is a number that expresses its sense of personal freedom.
There's no fixed foundation for the 5; it would be contrary to its vibration. The 5 may be doing something and be intensely interested in it, and the next moment be interested in something else entirely and immediately pursue the new interest.
The number 5 is curious and interested in pretty much everything.
5 is sensual, sensing life and its various intensities and vibrations as it flows through 5's essence. 5 experiences what interests it by observing and feeling and interacting with full focus — while it's still interested.
The number 5 is the most dynamic and energetic of all the single-digit numbers. It is unpredictable, always in motion and constantly in need of change. Although it is molded from an almost equal mix of masculine
and feminine qualities, in general the 5 is slightly more feminine -- albeit a daring, tomboyish kind of feminine, with nothing demure or submissive about her.
The numerology number 6 is a number of family, home, harmony, nurturing, and idealism.
Its foundation is family and a harmonious home. 6 is also a number of healing, of nurturing. It takes its responsibilities seriously.
The number 6 has an idea of what is ideal and prefers all in its vicinity to support that ideal and, together, achieve it. But more than that, it strives for a harmonious family relationship.
While the 6 is considered the most harmonious of all single-digit numbers, it is not without its flaws and upsets. The most important influence of the 6 is its loving and caring nature. Properly nicknamed the motherhood number, it is all about sacrificing, caring, healing, protecting and teaching others. No family or community can function without the power of the 6 to keep them together and safe. She is the glue that keeps a family or community together.
The numerology number 7 is a number of introspection and inner wisdom.
7 tends to be perceptive and astute and able to analyze problems to find viable solutions. Scientific analysis is an intrinsic talent.
The number 7 is the most introspective number of all.
The number 7 is the seeker, the thinker, the searcher of Truth (notice the capital "T"). The 7 doesn't take anything at face value -- it is always trying to understand the underlying, hidden truths. The 7 knows that nothing is exactly as it seems and that reality is often hidden behind illusions.
The numerology number 8 is a building number. It builds things.
8 is a business and finance number that builds companies, institutions, roads, procedures, and other things of value to society.
The number 8 is the most material number of all.
8 tends to build things that endure for a long time — think corporations, bridges, buildings, institutions, roads.
The number 8 is perhaps the most misunderstood of all single-digit numbers, as novices and professionals alike always seem to hammer on the "money and power" image of the 8. More often than not, when a client requests a name change consultation, it means he or she wants to add 8’s to his or her chart in the mistaken belief that it will bring money and power.
The numerology number 9 has a concern for the welfare of humanity. There's an absence of prejudice and judgment.
9 tends to be compassionate, tolerant of religions and life styles, and philanthropic for the welfare of people and the accomplishment of an idealistic vision. The number 9 is the most humanitarian number of all.
The last of the cardinal numbers, the 9 is the most worldly and sophisticated of all numbers. The 9 has some similarities with the 6. However, whereas the 6 as a symbol of motherly (or fatherly) love, giving its love and care to friends, family and the immediate community, the 9 offers it to the world at large; the 9, more than any other number, has global consciousness. Looking at the shape of the symbol is, as always, quite telling. The 9 is like the 6 upside down, a symbol of her offering sympathy and compassion to everyone; a reservoir of giving with a generous downward spout.
The master number 11 is the most intuitive of all master numbers. It's a spiritual number. It's dynamic. It has charisma. And it's a teacher.
The essence of the energy the master number 11 represents is a channel to the superconscious, insight without analysis, and spiritual illuminations.
One of the key things to remember about the master number 11, about all master numbers, actually, is that they represent potential. It isn't required that a person take advantage of a potential. People with a master number 11 can live life just fine without delving into the potential of the number.
