Meanings of numbers in numerology vary from one type to another. Some have simple definitions attached to each valid key number, while others have extensive meanings with elaborate descriptions and explanations.
Modern day numerology makes use of numbers 1 to 12 in determining one’s personal characteristics and predicting future happenings and trends.
Number 1 is considered as a powerful number, marking the starting point of counting numbers. It is perceived to be the “ultimate origin,” and thus represents absoluteness, perfection, and deity.
Number 2, on the other hand, represents polarities: good and evil, union and separation, male and female, black and white, and so on. It represents balance, where one cannot exist without the other.
Number 3 represents wholeness, with the symbolic union of the body, mind, and spirit. This number is considered to be lucky, as it solves the polarity problem of number 2.
Number 4 denotes solidity and stability, though it is also associated with negative things such as death and suffering, particularly in Chinese numerology. That’s why some hospitals don’t assign a “4th” floor.
Number 5 is associated with sensuality and the senses. It is also used to represent service to other people and critical thinking and analysis.
Number 6 represents harmony, beauty, and tact. It is basically concerned with things in which people usually find great pleasure in. It is often manifested in grace, charm, and nurturing abilities.
Number 7 is highly spiritual, also denoting mysteries to reveal and illumination.
Number 8 represents life’s lessons, experiences, and hard work. It is the symbol of karma.
Number 9 represents change, innovation, growth, and sacredness.
Number 10 marks the end of a significant cycle, further implying a change that would arise afterwards.
Number 11 is considered as a master number, representing spiritual awareness and wisdom. It denotes sensitivity and open-mindedness.
Number 12 also represents great wisdom and understanding. It denotes much learning from life experiences.
