About 1 The 1 is a doer, a powerful force that produces results and does not allow anything or anyone to limit its potential. The 1 is
aggressive, a necessary energy for creating and producing. The 1 is always in the forefront: a spearpoint directing and leading others.
The shape of the number 1, just like the shape of all other symbols, reflects its meaning; it walks upright with pride and purpose.
Strong, determined, unwavering and with specific goals in mind, the 1 can turn dreams and ideas into reality. It pushes obstacles aside
or simply drills right through them. The 1 grows, transforms and improves in perpetuity, precisely the way Mother Nature does. After all,
nature's primal force and most basic building block is the number 1. Nature knows no mercy and its cruelty can be heartbreaking. However,
it knows balance and gives life indiscriminately and without judgment.
If you look at the shape of the 2, however, you will recognize a symbolic representation of the ultimate survivor and an extremely
resilient force. Her shape, as if bent on a knee with her head and back bowed in humility and servitude, makes it easy to dismiss her
as weak and powerless. This is in stark contrast to the power and pride of the mighty and masculine 1, who will not bow for anyone at
any price. However, when enough pressure is applied to the powerful warrior we see in the number 1, he will break and shatter and be
done with. On the other hand, when the humble and feminine 2 finds herself under attack and burdened with a crushing weight, she will
bend, she will bend as much as needed. And when the weight is removed, her elastic, flexible nature allows her to come right back up,
seemingly with little harm done, and she will continue to play her role.
he number 3 is like a gifted teenager who is still under the protection of its parents: a bit spoiled, certainly scattered and perpetually in need of guidance.
However, the most obvious traits of the 3 are in the creative field. A powerful need to express feelings, ideas and visions of the
imagination, coupled with an extroverted personality, makes it likely that a person with 3s in key points of their Numerology chart
will seek a career in art, especially the verbal arts. His or her social skills are also excellent. Charm, wit and a sense of humor help
a 3 individual along his or her path, and if that weren't enough, good looks and compelling charisma make this "kid" particularly
attractive. No wonder so many are drawn to those with 3s in their charts. Followers are even willing to forgive less favorable traits
exhibited by 3s, like a lack of focus and direction, a tendency to procrastinate, an inability to finish projects and an unwillingness
to take responsibility. On the other hand, there is a superficial side to the 3 that can be harder to look past: a narcissistic streak,
a vanity, a need to be the center of attention. .
The 4 is without a doubt masculine, reflecting strength and stability. His chief characteristics are dependability, productivity, punctuality and obedience. He is trustworthy, patient, conventional and a traditionalist.
He is a bit boring and not much of a social person, preferring to toil in quiet obscurity. He works steadily and can be very persistent.
He finds great satisfaction in his accomplishments and favors results over financial reward or public recognition. He is humble, dresses
conservatively and blends in with his surroundings. He is average in looks, physically healthy and strong, neat and clean ... but
unremarkable. He does not like to draw attention to himself, but will fight you tooth and nail if you try to muscle in on his territory.
He believes in effort and control, and is certainly goal-oriented, but his goals are simple and down to earth. He is not a visionary,
but notices every detail. He is capable, has an excellent memory and doesn't cut corners. He is the perfect employee, but doesn't tend
to do well in social environments.
The number 5 is the most dynamic and energetic of all the single-digit numbers. It is unpredictable, always in motion and constantly
in need of change. Although it is molded from an almost equal mix of masculine and feminine qualities, in general the 5 is slightly
more feminine -- albeit a daring, tomboyish kind of feminine, with nothing demure or submissive about her. The 5 is extremely independent
in mind and soul. She is an adventurer and a risk-taker who has a hard time staying in one place, in one job, in one house or in one
relationship. Change is an absolute necessity, and yet the 5 is surprisingly loyal. The 2 and 6 are the most harmonious relationship
numbers but either one will, when temptation is strong enough, cheat on his or her partner. The 5 will not. The 5 may break off a
relationship due to her restless nature, but while in a relationship she will not deceive her partner. However, when she is not in a
relationship she considers herself free to date anyone she chooses and has no problem going out with a different person every day of the
week (and you better not try to tell her she should limit herself in any way, at least not if you want to stay on her good side).
In Numerology, each of the nine single digit numbers has a personality; a limited range of qualities and traits that makes it unique and recognizable. So, to get a good understanding of how numbers affect us,
it helps to get to know each single-digit number as if it were a person with its own unique traits, talents, shortcomings and idiosyncrasies. While the 6 is considered the most harmonious of all single-digit numbers, it is not without its flaws and upsets. The most important influence of the 6 is its loving and caring nature. Properly nicknamed the motherhood number, it is all about sacrificing, caring, healing, protecting and teaching others. No family or community can function without the power of the 6 to keep them together and safe. She is the glue that keeps a family or community together. There are, however, times when the 6 becomes too involved in the lives of those dear to her, to the point that she becomes intrusive and meddling. Other times, she takes her sacrificing nature too far and becomes a doormat to be abused and trampled on. Nonetheless, she is genuinely appreciated and adored in return. .
The number 7 is the seeker, the thinker, the searcher of Truth (notice the capital "T"). The 7 doesn't take anything at face value -- it is always trying to understand the underlying, hidden truths. The 7 knows that nothing
is exactly as it seems and that reality is often hidden behind illusions. A person who has a chart dominated by the 7 is usually
easily picked out of a group. He will be somewhat introverted, perhaps shy (not to be confused with low self-esteem), never truly
comfortable in social settings. The 7 is the intellectual, but his intellect is not always obvious, especially at an early
age (as a child, Einstein was dyslexic and not particularly bright or a good student). His intelligence is that of a dreamer,
an intellectual explorer of the obscure, the person who tends to have a somewhat off-beat perspective on the world around him.
Many are interested in the metaphysical, not because they are believers, but because it allows access to the ambiguous, abstract
world of questions for which there are no clear answers.
The number 8 is perhaps the most misunderstood of all single-digit numbers, as novices and professionals alike always seem to hammer on the
"money and power" image of the 8. More often than not, when a client requests a name change consultation, it means he or she wants to add
8s to his or her chart in the mistaken belief that it will bring money and power. It is true that the number 8, more than any other number,
puts the emphasis in the areas of career, business, finances and authority. However, as with many other single-digit numbers, the shape of
the number reflects its most important attribute, and in the case of the number 8, that is, first and foremost, balance. The 8 is the great
Karmic equalizer, a force that just as easily creates as it destroys. When the 8 comes knocking, you can be assured that you will reap what
The last of the cardinal numbers, the 9 is the most worldly and sophisticated of all numbers. The 9 has some similarities with the 6.
However, whereas the 6 as a symbol of motherly (or fatherly) love, giving its love and care to friends, family and the immediate community,
the 9 offers it to the world at large; the 9, more than any other number, has global consciousness. Looking at the shape of the symbol is,
as always, quite telling. The 9 is like the 6 upside down, a symbol of her offering sympathy and compassion to everyone; a reservoir of
giving with a generous downward spout. The 9 lives in the world and understands the connections between all of mankind. It is a
humanitarian, and sees no real difference between its neighbor next door and the person living in a very different culture and environment
on the other side of the world. The 9 is the least judgmental of all numbers, the most tolerant and the most conscious.
