Here’s a rundown of common number meanings to get you started if you’re unfamiliar with this.
0 – Timelessness, super consciousness, God.
1 – Beginnings, origins, conception, individuality, the ego.
2 – Union, partnership, two halves of a whole, coming together, duality — male, female, yin and yang, good and evil.
3 – Life, inner strength, creativity, planning, developing, constructing, striving, the divine Trinity, past present and future, mother father and child.
4 – Stability, work, labor, structure, foundation, earthly things, the cube, the square. Being satiated.
5 – Action, change of course, daring and bold nature, the five human senses, material excess, Man and primal urges. In occultism, think of the pentagram.
6 – Tranquility, harmony, balance, love, perfection, things are flowing and being in the flow.
7 – High spiritual achievement, mental perfection. Other sources define 7 as the waiting period, being stuck, unable to move forward, a time of evaluation, the unstable period before inevitable change…think of Genesis – and on the seventh day, God rested.
8 – Power, authority, will, material gains, success, energy, karma, entering a new phase. The sign for “infinity” is a figure 8 tipped on its side.
9 – Endings, rebirth, reformation, recovery, things coming full circle. The circle is 360 degrees — 3 + 6 + 0 = 9.
10 – Closure of a cycle, transformation, beginning anew, possibly on a higher level. Also, computer binary code, indicative of “a program”, is the repeating 10101010.
11 – The initiate, mastery of a domain, spirituality, enlightenment, potential to achieve. Many MANY people have reported consistently spotting a variation of this, which is 11:11, namely on clocks. Two interesting theories include 11:11 being a trigger code to wake us up and raise ourselves out of the illusion; or, being in the flow and on the right track, with things lining up, as evidenced by the parallel line structure of 1111. In trying to figure out how people came to decide that 11:11 is a “trigger code” of some sort, I came across a definition of the number 11 in Mary Summer Rain’s “Guide to Dream Symbols” book. She claims that 11 represents misplaced values. I thought that was interesting since she’s pretty much the only source saying this. If 11 represents misplaced values, then getting 11:11’d could be a reminder to rethink our values and strive for something better.
12 – Spiritual strength, divine protection. It’s a related form of 3, since when it’s broken down, 1 + 2 equals 3.
13 – Obstacles to overcome, death, destruction, end and beginning.
28 – The moon cycle, the feminine cycle. 28 is 2 + 8, which is 10. Think of the meaning of the number 10 and how it matches with the concept of the moon and feminine cycles.
33 – High potential, mastery of spiritual consciousness. The 33rd rite of the Scottish rite of Freemasonry is the highest level one can achieve. Jesus died at 33. (but then again, the bible was supposedly re-written by Freemasons who inserted that in. )
