Master Numbers Explained

What are Master Numbers? 

In Numerology, when you see double-digit numbers that repeat the same number (such as 11, 22, 33 and so on), these are considered Master Numbers.  Many Numerologist’s only observe the 11 and the 22 when they work with your core numbers in your chart.  Some work with the 33.

So what does this mean for you?  To start, if you calculate your Life Path number and get an 11, 22, or 33 before you digit down to the 2, 4 or 6 you show a Master Number as your Life Path number.

You can also experience Master Numbers in other aspects of your chart, including your Destiny/Expression Number, Soul Urge Number, Maturity Number, Personality Number and so on.  Not to mention that you can also experience Master Numbers during your Personal Year Cycles and Pinnacles.

If you find Master Numbers anywhere in your chart, you’ll benefit from learning more about what this means for you.

Here’s an example of a Master Number showing up as a Life Path number:

Birth date:  February 2, 1987

February = 2

Day = 2

Year = 1987;  1 + 9 + 8 + 7 = 25;  keep adding  2 + 5 = 7

Add the Month, Day, Year:  2 + 2 + 7 = 11

11 is a Master Number.

It is sometimes written this way:  11/2

The Master Number brings with it an intensity that is undeniable. It is generally observed that you’ve come with a higher spiritual purpose, no matter how you might define that.  The Master Numbers carry a higher vibration.

So in practical terms, this means that you’re going to feel high-strung when you’re working with a Master Number – particularly when it show up as your Life Path or another of your core numbers. 

You’re going to feel a constant push and pull to be more and do better, sometimes to the point of distraction.  You might also notice that you have higher expectations for yourself, even when others can’t see that those feelings are going on inside of you.

So what does that mean for you on a practical level?  It means that you’re here to “Master” your life.  It means that you have some significant strengths and some more intense challenges.  The bottom line for you:  It’s not easy!  Master Numbers make conflicting demands on you. 

I like to point out that the Master Numbers actually conflict with themselves.

For instance, the 11 is a double 1;  all about the self, creativity, initiation, independence, innovation, and self-confidence.  Yet the foundational energy for the 11 is the 2, which is all about others, partnership, loving group dynamics, and being supportive and behind the scenes.  So can you see how – if you’re on an 11 Life Path – you might feel ever-so conflicted most of the time?

When you understand the demands the Master Numbers place on you, can can begin to work with yourself in more effective ways that can potentially harness all that amazingness you have to offer without crashing and burning in the process!

The main advice I have for anyone experiencing Master Numbers is this:  Working with Master Numbers is a marathon, not a sprint!  You must train, be flexible, pace yourself, and invest in the right equipment.  Otherwise, you’ll either burn too bright too quickly, or you’ll deaden the flame and always feel as though you were meant for more yet will never find the courage or strength to take risks and move yourself and your enterprises to the next and higher level.
