Revealing Single Numbers and their hidden meanings
ascribed to the numbers 1 to 9 belong to the
physical or material side of things, and "compound"
numbers from 10 onwards carries different octaves and belong to the more
occult or spiritual side of life. Distinct
symbolism has been given to the "compound"
numbers up to that mysterious number of 52.
number 1 stands in this symbolism for
the Sun. It is the beginning-that by
which all the rest of the nine numbers
were created. The basis of all numbers
is one-the basis of all life is one.
This number represents all that is creative,
individual, and positive. Without going
into further details, a person born
under the Birth number of 1, or any
of its series, has the Underlying principles
of being in his or her work creative,
inventive, strongly individual, definite
in his or her views, and in consequence
more or less obstinate and determined
in all they as individuals undertake.
This relates to all men and women born
under the number 1, such as on the 1st,
10th, I9th, or 28th of any month (the
addition of all these numbers making
a 1), but more especially so if they
happen to be born between the 21st July
and the 28th August, which is the period
of the Zodiac called the "House
of the Sun," or from the 21st March
to the 28th April, when the Sun enters
the Vernal Equinox and is considered
elevated or all-powerful during this
period. It is for this reason, which
you will observe has a logical basis
that, people born under the number 1
in these particular periods must have
the qualities that I have given to all
number 1 people in a distinctly more
Number 1 people are ambitious; they
dislike restraint, they always rise
in whatever their profession or occupation
may be. They desire to become the heads
of whatever their businesses are, and
as departmental chiefs they keep their
authority and make themselves respected
and "looked up to" by their
The number 2 stands in symbolism for the Moon. It has the female attributes of the Sun and for this reason alone, although number 1 and number 2 people are decidedly opposite in their characters, their vibrations are harmonious and they make good combinations.
Number 2 persons are gentle by nature, imaginative, artistic, and romantic. Like the number 1 people, they are also inventive, but they are not as forceful in carrying out their ideas. Their qualities are more on the mental than the physical plane and they are seldom as strong physically as those born under the number 1. The behavior and power of the number 2 persons is mostly driven according to the waxing and waning moon ( Krishn Paksh and Shukl Paksh) so in this terms they faces both positive and negative period according to the position of Moon.
Number 2 people are all those who are born on the 2nd, 11th, 20th, or 29th in any month, but their characteristics are the more marked if they are born between the 20th June and the 20-27th July, this period being what is called the "House of the Moon".
Number 2 persons and number 1 vibrate together, and in a lesser degree with number 7 people, such as those born on the 7th, 16th, or 25th in any month.
The number 3 stands in symbolism for the Planet Jupiter, a planet, which plays a most important role both in Astrology and in all systems of Numerology. It is the beginning of what may be termed one of the main lines of force that runs right through all the numbers from 3 to 9.
It has a special relation to every third in the series, such as 3, 6, 9, and all their additions. These numbers added together in any direction produce a 9 as their final digit, and the 3, 6, 9 people are all sympathetic to one another.
Persons having a 3 for their Birth number are all those who are born on the 3rd, 12th, 21st, or 30th in any month, but the number 3 has still more significance if they should be born in what is called the "period of the 3" from the I9th February to March 20th-27th, or from the 21st November to December 20th-27th.
Number 3 people, like the number 1 individuals, are decidedly ambitious. They are never satisfied by being in subordinate positions. Their aim is to rise in the world, to have control and authority over others. They are excellent in the execution of commands; they love order and discipline in all things.
Number 3 people often rise to the very highest positions in any business, profession or sphere in which they may be found. They often excel in positions of authority in the army and navy, in government, and in life generally; and especially in all posts of trust and responsibility, as they are extremely conscientious in carrying out their duties.
Their faults are that they are inclined to be dictatorial, to "lay down the law" and to insist on carrying out their own ideas. For this reason, although they are peaceful, they succeed in making many enemies.
The number 4 stands in its symbolism for the Planet Uranus. It is considered related to the Sun, number 1, and in occultism is written as 4-1. Number 4 people have a distinct character of their own. They appear to view everything from an opposite angle to everyone else. In an argument they will always take the opposite side, and although not meaning to be quarrelsome, yet they bring about opposition and make a great number of secret enemies who constantly work against them.
They seem quite naturally to take a different view of anything that is presented to their minds. They instinctively rebel against rules and regulations, and if they can have their way, they reverse the order of things, even in communities and governments as per their own logic and practicality. They are often inclined to be attracted to social questions and reforms of all kinds, and can be very positive or negative and unconventional in their views and opinions.
Number 4 people are all those who are born on the 4th, 13th, 22nd, and 31st in any month; their individuality is still more pronounced of they are born in the Zodiacal period of the Sun and Moon, namely, between the 2Ist June and July 20th-27th (Moon period) and from the 21st July to the end of August (Sun period).
Number 4 people do not make friends easily. They seem more attracted to persons born under the 1, 2, 7 and 8 numbers, though there relation seldom lasts till end. They are seldom as successful in worldly or material matters as people born under the other numbers, and as a rule they are more or less indifferent as to the accumulation of wealth.
Their chief faults are that they are most highly strung and sensitive, very easily wounded in their feelings, inclined to feel lonely and isolated, and are likely to become despondent and melancholy unless they have achieved success. In its lower plane, it makes the person associated to underworld or secret society. It makes the person highly secretive, cunning, practical and purposeful. In many ways they are born politicians and often think from mind over heart.
The number 5 stands in symbolism for the Planet Mercury, and is highly versatile and mercurial in all its characteristics. Number 5 people are all those who are born on the 5th, 14th, and 23rd in any month, but their characteristics are still more marked if they are born in what is called the "period of the 5" Which is from the 21st May to June 20th-27th, and from the 21st August to September 20th - 27th .
Number 5 people make friends easily and get on with persons born under almost any other number, but their best friends are those who are born under their own number, such as the 5th, 14th, and 23rd of any month and also 1 and 3.
Number 5 people are mentally very highly strung. They live on their nerves and appear to crave excitement. They are quick in thought and decisions, and impulsive in their actions. They detest any plodding kind of work and seem naturally to drift into all methods of making money quickly. They have a keen sense of making money by inventions and new ideas. They are born speculators, prone to Stock Exchange transactions, and generally are willing and ready to run risks in all they undertake.
They have the most wonderful elasticity of character. Because of the inner wisdom, they rebound quickly from the heaviest blow; nothing seems to affect them for very long; like their symbol, quicksilver, which Mercury represents, the blows of Fate leave no indentations on their character. If they are by nature good they remain so; if bad, no preaching in the world can change them. Because of this nature, number 5 people can be found in any aspect of life i.e. materialistic or spiritualistic. He can be a great saint or can be demon depending on the ideologies and some astrological planetary position the person has acquired.
Their greatest drawback is that they exhaust their nervous strength to such an extent that they often fall victims to nervous breakdowns of the worst kind, and under any mental tension they easily become irritable and quick-tempered. Mercury can cause several mental ailments in the person. For ex. in around 60 to 70% of mentally disabled child, you will find their DOB as 5th,14th or 23rd of any month. If the child in such case is not mentally disabled, then it is sure shot that the child will be on high axis of intelligence i.e. highly intellectual especially if the child is born in the period from 21st May to June 20th-27th, and from the 21st August to September 20th - 27th. For ex. Albert Einstein, Amir Khan (Bollywood Superstar), Paramhans Yoganand (author of Autobiography of a Yogi), Dr B.R. Ambedkar to name a few.
The number 6 stands in symbolism for the Planet Venus. Persons having a 6 as their Birth number are all those who are born on the 6th, 15th, or 24th of any month, but they are more especially influenced by this number if they are born in what is called the "House of the 6th," which is from the 20th April to May 20th-27th, and from the 21st September to October 20th-27th.
As a rule all number 6 people are extremely magnetic; they attract others to them, and they are loved and often worshipped by those under them. They are very determined in carrying out their plans, and may, in fact, be deemed obstinate and unyielding, except when they themselves become deeply attached: in such a case they become devoted slaves to those they love.
Although number 6 people are considered influenced by the Planet Venus, yet as a rule their is more the "mother love" than the sensual. They lean to the romantic and ideal in all matters of the affections. In some ways they take very strongly after the supposed qualities of Venus, in that they love beautiful things, they make most artistic homes, are fond of rich colors, also paintings, statuary, and music. If rich, they are most generous to art and artists, they love to entertain their friends and make everyone happy about them, but the one thing they cannot stand is discord and jealousy.
When roused by anger, they will brook no opposition, and will fight to the death for whatever person or cause they espouse, or out of their sense of duty.
The number 6 people have got the power making more friends than any other class, with the exception of the number 5, but especially so with all persons born under the vibration of the 3, the 6, the 9, or all their series.
The number 7 stands in symbolism for the Planet Neptune, and represents all persons born under the 7, namely those who are born on the 7th, 16th, or 25th of any month, but especially influences such persons if they were born from the 21st June to July 20th-27th, the period of the Zodiac called the "House of the Moon" The Planet Neptune has always been considered as associated with the Moon, and, as the part of the Zodiac I have mentioned is also called the First House of Water, the connection of Neptune whose very name is always associated with Water is then logical and easily understood. People born under the number 7, namely, on the 7th, 16th, or 25th of any month, are very independent, original, and have strongly marked individuality. Also the number 7 is more positive then the number 2.
At heart they love change and travel, being restless in their natures. If they have the means of gratifying their desires, they visit foreign countries and become keenly interested in the affairs of far off lands. They often make extremely good writers, painters, or poets, but in everything they do, they sooner or later show a peculiar philosophical outlook on life. As a class they care little about the material things of life; they often become rich by their original ideas or methods of business, but if they do, they are just as likely to make large donations from their wealth to charities or institutions. They are intended to think from heart and because of it many times they often get cheated in the matter of heart.
The number 7 people have good ideas about business or rather their plans are good if they will only carry them out. They have usually a keen desire to travel and read a great deal about far-off countries. If they can, they will become interested in matters concerning the sea, and in trade or business they often become merchants, exporters and importers, dealing with foreign countries and owners or captains of ship, if they can get the chance.
Number 7 people have very peculiar ideas about religion. They dislike following the normal rituals; and often follow the path to inner science. These people usually have remarkable dreams and a great leaning to occultism; they have the gift of intuition, clairvoyance, and a peculiar quieting magnetism of their own that has great influence over others and because of this influence they can rise on the highest peak of spiritual enlightment in a very less time or with minimal effort. For ex. Meher Baba, Marconi, Atal Bihari Bajpai(former PM), Famous Poet Browning and William Wordsworth, to name a few.
The number 8 stands in symbolism for the Planet Saturn. This number influences all persons born on the 8th, I7th, or 26th, in any month, but still more so if their birthday comes between the 21st December and the 26th January, and from the 26th January to February I9th-26th. These people are invariably much misunderstood in their lives, and perhaps for this reason they feel intensely lonely at heart. They have deep and very intense natures, great strength of individuality; they generally play some important role on life's stage, but usually one, which is fatalistic, or as the instrument of Fate for others.
If religious or spiritually inclined, they often go to extremes. In any cause they take up, they attempt to carry it through in spite of all argument or opposition and in doing so they generally make bitter and relentless enemies.
They often appear cold and undemonstrative, though in reality they have warm hearts towards the oppressed of all classes; but they hide their feelings and allow people to think just what they please.
These number 8 people are either great successes or great failures; there appears to be no happy medium in their case. If ambitious; they generally aim for public life or government responsibility of some kind, and often hold very high positions involving great sacrifice on their part.
It is not, however, from a worldly standpoint, a fortunate number to be born under, and such persons often are called on to face the very greatest sorrows, losses, and humiliations.
The number 8 is actually difficult number to explain. It represents two worlds, the material and the spiritual. It is in fact, if one regards it, like two circles just touching together.
It is composed of two equal numbers 4 and 4. From the earliest ages it has been associated with the symbol of an irrevocable Fate, both in connection with the lives of individuals or nations. In Astrology it stands for Saturn, which is also called the Planet of Fate.
One side of the nature of this number represents upheaval, revolution and anarchy of all kinds. The other side represents philosophic thought, a strong leaning towards occult studies, religious devotion, concentration of purpose and a fatalistic outlook coloring all actions.
All persons who have the number 8 clearly associated with their lives feel that they are distinct and different from their fellows. At heart they are lonely; they are misunderstood, and they seldom reap the reward for the good they may do while they are living. After their death they are often extolled, their works praised, and lasting tributes offered to their memory.
Those on the lower plane generally come into conflict with human justice and have some tragic ending to their lives. Also they are more often cunning, extremely shrewd and emotion less. Those on the higher plane carry their misunderstood motives and lay bare the tragedy of their souls before Divine Justice.
To distinguish in which of these two classes a number 8 person falls, one must find by the comparison of their numbers if they are completely dominated by the recurrence of 8 in the principal events of their lives, or if some other equally powerful numbers such as the 1, 3, 5 or 6 series does not more or less balance the sequel of events registered under the 8 and all its series.
If the latter is the case, one may be sure that by the long series of reincarnations they have passed through, they have paid the price in some former state, and are now passing towards the higher state of rewards though the mishappenings or pain may still be there in one way or another until it has been bypassed through the remedial science of Numerology.
If, on the contrary, we find that the person is completely dominated by the number 8, always recurring in important events, or if nearly equally fatalistic number of 4 is continually recurring, we may then be sure that we are in the presence of one those strange playthings of Fate with the possibilities that tragedy may be interwoven in their Destiny. For both the cases, there must be a pre planned and thoughtful deduction for every event of life.
The number 9 stands in symbolism for the Planet Mars. This number influences all persons born on the 9 the, 18th, and 27th, of any month, but still more so if their birthday falls in the period between the 21st March and April 19th-26th or in the period between the 21st October and November 20th-27th .
Number 9 persons are fighters in all they attempt in life. They usually have difficult times in their early years, but generally they are, in the end, successful by their grit, strong will, and determination. In character, they are hasty in temper, impulsive, independent, and desire to be their own masters.
When the number 9 is noticed to be more than usually dominant in the dates and events of their lives, they will be found to make great enemies, to cause strife and opposition wherever they may be and they are often wounded or killed either in warfare or in the battle of life. They have great courage and make excellent soldiers or leaders in any cause.
Their greatest dangers arise from foolhardiness and impulsiveness in word and action. They are also peculiarly prone to accidents from fire and explosions and rarely get through life without injury from such causes. As a general rule they go under many operations by the surgeon's knife. They usually experience many quarrels and strife in their home life, either, with their own relations or with the family they marry into.
They are resourceful and excellent in organization, but they must have the fullest control; if not, they lose heart and stand aside and let things go to pieces. For affection and sympathy they will do almost anything, and the men of this number can be made the greatest fools of, if any clever woman captures them in her trap.
This number 9 has some very curious properties. It is the only number in calculation that, multiplied by any number, always reproduces itself, as for example 9 times 2 is 18 and 1 plus 8 becomes again the 9, and so on with every number it is multiplied by.
The number 9 is considered a fortunate number to be born under, provided the man or woman does not ask for monotonous life, and can control their nature in not making enemies.
