THE SYMBOLISM OF NUMBERS
The symbolic analysis of single digits and master numbers is the essence of a numerology report or any other numerological character analysis. Since so many numbers are present and modify each other, the analysis is, as you might expect, a considerably complex operation. When you understand the basic symbolism of the numbers outlined below, though, you’ll have a useful grasp that should make it easier to interpret the various parts of the report.


1 INDEPENDENCE, INDIVIDUALITY, ATTAINMENT;
LEADERSHIP, PIONEERING, ADMINISTRATING

You were born with strong leadership potential. As you develop this ability, you may be able to assume a significant position in the business or political world. One of your major lessons in life is to learn the benefits of being independent. Learn to stand comfortably on your own two feet without leaning on other people. After that, advance yourself by using your ability for organizing, leading and management. Some people spend much of their lives on the first part of the lesson. Others learn that part quickly and devote most of their lives to important leadership roles.

2 COOPERATION, CLOSENESS, SENSITIVITY;
BALANCE AND HARMONY, SUPPORTIVE

You have an innate sensitivity and extreme awareness of the feelings of yourself and others. Because you are touched by the subtleties of emotions, you can understand a great deal from a word, a gesture, or even an unspoken thought. One of your major lessons in life is to learn to balance that sensitivity so it contributes to your well-being, instead of allowing it to trip you up. Rather than becoming hurt or resentful because of your unusual sensitivity, you must learn to use your responsiveness for the benefit of everyone. Although your sensitivity may feel like a weakness, particularly in your younger years, it is one of your important strengths.


3 EXPRESSING SELF, JOY OF LIVING;
ENTHUSIASM, OPTIMISM, CREATIVITY, SOCIABILITY

You were born with a special gift: the potential to experience pleasures of life with great delight. You sometimes affirm this delight with exhilarating enthusiasm; at other times, you savor it with intense but quiet pleasure. One of your major lessons in life is to learn to fully appreciate and express this wonderful joy in living. You enjoy people and spend considerable time socializing, either with many friends in varied activities, or in the company of a few intimate friends engaged in quiet diversions. You also enjoy using your considerable creativity.

4 SYSTEM AND ORDER, SERVICE, SENSE OF LIMITATION;
MANAGING, HARD-WORKING, PRACTICAL, DOWN-TO-EARTH

You were born with the potential to work long, hard and patiently. If there's a job requiring a good deal of time, much difficult work and careful attention to detail, you can probably do it well. One of your major lessons in life is to learn the advantage of using system and order. You may choose a line of work in which your systematic approach can be developed. You're likely to be good at establishing new routines and maintaining existing ones. You will also experience limitations and restrictions at times in your life. Rather then struggle against these, learn to live with them, to accept them and make a meaningful life -- not in spite of these limitations, but because of them.

5 CONSTRUCTIVE USE OF FREEDOM;
VARIETY, EXCITEMENT, PROGRESSIVE, CREATIVE

You were born with considerable versatility -- the ability to do almost anything you attempt with superior skill. As you can imagine, this innate capacity allows you a boundless freedom most people can only dream about. One of your major lessons in life is to learn to use this freedom constructively. Since you have so many talents and so many opportunities for the use of those talents, you have to learn to focus your energies on a limited number of ventures, rather than attempt to take advantage of all the possibilities.

6 BALANCE, RESPONSIBILITY, LOVE;
SUPPORTIVE, COMFORTING, SERVING, HELPING

You have the innate ability to comfort, help and serve others less able than yourself. You probably devote much of your effort to other people. One of your major lessons in life is to learn the special satisfactions that come from the responsibilities you accept. Since others will quickly recognize your caring ways and turn to you for the help you can provide, you are apt to commit yourself to far more than your fair share. Although your sense of responsibility is one of your important strengths, you may have to learn that you don't have to be responsible for everything or everybody.

7 ANALYSIS, UNDERSTANDING, INTROSPECTIVE;
SEARCH FOR TRUTH, SPIRITUAL UNDERSTANDING

You have a fine analytical mind and are capable of much in the way of learning. You have the potential to understand fundamental truths, as well as the capacity to search for ultimate meanings. You may involve yourself in complex technical, scientific or philosophical studies. One of your major lessons in life is to use your abilities to learn the peace of mind that can only come from knowing yourself and expressing your deepest feelings.

8 MATERIAL SATISFACTION, ACCOMPLISHMENT;
DESIRE FOR SUCCESS, POWER, RECOGNITION

You were born with strong business ability. As you develop your executive and administrative talents, you may want to run your own business, or at least play a significant role in some commercial venture. One of your major lessons in life is to learn the satisfactions of the material world and the power that comes with its mastery. You may have to learn that the attainment of wealth or power is not an end in itself, but only a means to an end. The goal, quite simply, is the happiness and satisfaction that can be achieved along with the material freedom.

9 SELFLESSNESS, HUMANITARIANISM;
GIVING WITHOUT THOUGHT OF RETURN, COMPASSIONATE

You have an innate love of your fellow man. You probably enjoy people as individuals and, at the same time, have a marked concern for humanity in general. You may involve yourself in philanthropic or humanitarian activities. One of your major lessons in life is to learn to give of yourself as selflessly as possible, without thought of reward or return. As you can well imagine, this is a difficult lesson to put into practice. Much of your effort may be spent in learning to balance your personal needs and ambitions, however large or small, against your inborn desire to contribute to those in need.

11 ILLUMINATION, SPIRITUAL CHANNEL;
SPIRITUAL TEACHER

When you use your spiritual awareness, you intuitively perceive a great deal about the non-material world: specifically, religious, psychic or metaphysical forces. You have the potential to act as a channel for these awarenesses. You can learn to develop your ability to tune into these spiritual areas, then transmit your unique knowledge and increased perception of their deepest truths to others. This may prove to be one of the most important lessons that you learn.

22 MASTER BUILDER, LATENT POWER, NERVOUS TENSION;
SPIRITUAL UNDERSTANDING OF MATERIAL WORLD, HIGH IDEALS

When you use your spiritual awareness, you intuitively perceive a great deal about the non-material world: specifically, religious, psychic or metaphysical forces. You have the potential to apply these unique philosophical perceptions to the accomplishment of practical, down-to-earth undertakings. You may be able to develop or manage sizable ventures, particularly those with significant humanitarian ends. Learning to use your non-material understandings for the benefit of the material world may prove to be one of the more important lessons in your life.
