Numerology Meaning

The basis of all numerology is, of course, the meanings of each numeric vibration. We will present the basic vibrations here from 0 through 10 and the Master Numbers of 11 and 22. Be aware that most Numerologists consider each numbers importance and they interpret the larger numbers before they reduce a number to it’s smaller base value from 0 – 10.

The following chart will be used to interpret the Numbers and their meanings, symbolic and literal through history. These interpretations are basic and typical ones, however each number could hold it’s own interpretation for each unique individual; and it is up to the individual themselves to come to terms with their own interpretations. If an individual numeric symbolism is present this should take precedence over the historical meanings portrayed here.

Choose a number to go to that meaning:

Qualities and Traits


number-zero Null, nothing, The Void, Circle, Hollow, Empty
Astrology: the Moon (symbolically), ruler of Cancer
Emptiness, spiritual essence, nothingness, blank Emptiness but containing everything. The Essential Void

Derived from the Latin ‘nulla figura’ (not a real figure) and relatively new in terms of mystical symbolism. Ancient Mayans and Olmecs had a basic understanding of the concept and represented Zero as an empty oyster. We can look at the Oyster as a give of life and therefore Zero as both an empty, hollow form but also a form which produces a living thing or another being almost magically.

Character traits: Empty yet whole. Essence of all things, accepting and creative.
Negative tendencies: Without form, shapeless. Lack of detail, unorganized.

number-one One with God, Male Phallus, a Point (in geometry), God the Father, Goodness (for Male dominated societies), Bad (for Female dominated societies)
Astrology: Sun ruler of Leo

Independence, loneliness, creativity, originality, dominance, leadership, impatience. Daring and self-reliant. Pioneering, Independent and Creative.

All things are at their essence ‘one thing’. There is One whole which has created a deep religious and mystical tradition identifying unity and singleness with goodness and therefor diversity and difference as bad. In all religions the essence of the belief is that of One God (even within Christianity, where the Trinity is well known, the eventual source is always One.) At first One was thought of as not even being a number at all since all other numbers are made from it – and it was seen as combining both opposites of odd and even and therefore all other opposites in the universe; because of this it was the number 10 that was seen as completion and perfection since it completed the series of essential numbers (1-9) and brought them all back to unity (10 = 1 + 0 = 1).

Character traits: Exceptionally powerful and dominating personality. Individualistic and intensely original and creative. An inspired and inspiring leader and a pioneer. Efficient and determined and good at initiating new projects.
Negative tendencies: Stubborn and contrary. Resenting authority, rarely seeking advice or follow it. Single-minded, wilful, impatient and possibly quick tempered. Obstinately proud and possibly difficult to deal with.

number-two Female, God the Mother, Earth, Goodness (for Female dominated societies), Bad (for Male dominated societies)
Astrology: Moon (symbolically), ruler of Cancer
Quiet, passive, diplomatic, co-operation, Comforting and soothing. Intuitive, compromising, patient. Patient and frugal. Easy-going, soft, indulgent and not physically strong.

As a number two represents bad (in the modern context), 2 is naturally the opposite of 1, which was seen as God and goodness – however NO number by itself is bad and this should be taken in context. The symbolic interpretation can be seen with the use of two (pairs) or pillars used to signify an entry way to a temple (or holy veil). Note that the Pentagram (with 1 point upward) turned upside down (and two points upward) can be used to signify this difference between one (goodness) and two (bad). This symbol for two can then be seen in it’s symbolic interpretation as the two horns (on a devil’s head).

Character traits: Good at comforting others, inclined to take up fads. Co-operative and good-natured, symphathetic and understanding, helpful and good at keeping a secret. Gets along well with others but may be shy and timid. Likes detail and settled routine somewhat as long as others are around and may be worried by newness and sudden changes.
Negative tendencies: Unambitious, lacks self-confidence, insecure and restless.

Astrology: Mercury, ruler of Gemini
Charming, out-going, self-expressive, extroverted, abundance, active, energetic, proud. Charming, entertaining, successful communicator with a natural attraction for money and the opposite sex.

The Trinity in Christian numerology is very important and naturally linked with the most holy, perfect and the best. The number 3 has been linked with the superlative before Christianity, and is translated by the Greeks as superlatively great, and the Latin as happiest. God is related to the number 3 as having a surface and being real (manifested) or ‘touchable’, this becomes further defined with the number 4 and the addition of a fourth point which creates a solidity. Completeness is symbolized by 3 (as well as 7 and 9) but for different reasons.

Character traits: Enjoys being the center of attention, tends to show off and loves to be admired, but is quite often more sensitive then the exterior suggests. Has a tendency to expend energies wastefully in too many directions. With a love of pleasure also may be wasteful with money.

Harmony, truth, justice, order, discipline, practicality, the material world, dedication. Steady, Stable, Solid, Hard-working, Dependable.

The basis of all solid objects is the number 4. Four points can be used to construct a solid and therefore it is seen as a symbol for the way in which things are constructed.

Astrology: Jupiter, ruler of Aquarius
Spirituality, completeness, solitary, isolation, introspection Mystical, scholarly, a philosopher and recluse.

There are many 7 references throughout ancient religion: 7 sacraments, 7 virtues, 7 sins, 7 petitions, 7 ‘gifts of the spirit’ – wisdom, understanding, cooperation, strength, knowledge, holiness. Seven is associated with the moon and therefore a number of reflection (symbolically from the reflection of sunlight from the Moon. Overall the implication is that this is a magical number; the person or thing referred to may be mystical and ‘all-knowing’ or desiring knowledge beyond all other things. A completeness which is gained only from true insight, but at the expense of an inward focus, aloofness and isolation. This completeness is symbolized by 7 as well as 3 and 9.

number-eight Eternity, infinity, Caduceus symbol, God of trade/commerce
Astrology: Saturn, ruler of Capricorn
Organization, business and commerce, immortality, resurrection, new beginnings, success/failure, Gaia as Great Mother. Business person, leader and organizer, materialist.

Esotericism sees the 8 as symbolizing a resurrection into a higher consciousness, and representing the eternal and spiral motions of cycles. It is this cyclic function of 8 that has come to mean success/failure and give it it’s organizational powers. Behind all of this is the fact that 8 is really 4 (earth) doubled and therefore implying that 8 means intense involvement in material matters, money-making, industry and commerce, earthly power and all of ‘the things of this world’.

Character traits: Ambitious for power, status, money, and success. May lead to great success or sudden failure. Busy with world affairs. Interested in the materialization of their dreams and desires (into the physical world).

Generally speaking 9 is seen as the number of completeness. It marks the end of the human gestation period and the end of a series of numbers (1-10), as well as a complete circle (360 degrees = 3 + 6 + 0 = 9). Christ completed his life and died at the ninth hour. Nine categories of people are called ‘blessed’ in the Sermon on the Mount. Because 9 is a number of initiation it is seen as being liable to injury (since initiations commonly involve ordeals and mutilations. 9 is a complete number: if multiplied by any other number it always reproduces itself (3 x 9 = 27 = 2 + 7 = 9). Completeness is symbolized by 9 as well as by 3 and 7 (but for different reasons).

The number of completion in most systems, number 10 represents perfection, completion and fulfillment. 10 in the Kaballah is equal to Malkuth = Kingdom in the Tree of Life which indicates that this number represents the entire kingdom or the completion of a kingdom.

number-twenty-two 22 letters of Hebrew Alphabet, goddess, justice.
Astrology: Venus (symbolically) (22 = 2+2 = #4 numerologically) and Earth (symbolically) as rulers this number also may symbolize Taurus (symbolically at a higher level) because reducing 22 numerologically = 2+2=4)

22 is a master number representing the 22 letters of the original Hebrew alphabet and what most of Numerology is based on: the Tree of Life. The 22 paths corresponding to the letters represent the emanations from the divine being which created the universe, the paths leading down from the Sefira Kether (the top) are stages in the process through which the universe came into being. These 22 paths were probably used by the original designers of the Tarot who used them to represent the 22 Trumps of the Tarot. It is easy to see the power and sense of completeness that is represented by 22.

Character traits: The vibration of the 22 is essentially the 4 vibration raised to an extremely high level and pertaining more to the professional world as opposed to the manual labor world of the 4. 22 is a Grand Builder able to accomplish great things on this earth with the help of others.
