I was recently asked about the various ways I read numbers for my clients.
Here I respond, using the meaning of number 22 as an example.
Dear Numerically Curious:
When I offer numerology consultations , I look at all universal clues from as many perspectives as I am able.
So – to answer your question in the case of 22 I would:
- Look at the significance as 22 as a whole
- Look at the significance of 22 reduced (4)
- Then look at the significance that four split (yet another two)
- Understand this is a “master” number in numerology because it is a repeating double digit. In this instance, the vibrational frequency of the prime number doubles in power.
- View the number artistically, as a visual whole (two’s have a crooked feel with a straightening out that indicates initial rocky life paths with a likelihood of eventual evening or balancing out).
- Call upon other symbol resources such as the Tarot for more intuitive insight. In this case, you may consider the Priestess as she is the second archetype featured in the major arcana.
- Draw the number. I’m often drawing the number repeatedly while consulting with my clients. I find this enhances my intuition more and allows for more creative interpretations.
I would also take into account the ruling planet for two’s which is Saturn – this tells me there is a tendency for creativity, passionate behavior, and even though order is driving priority – there is much learning and expression to be gained while using the Right (creative) brain.
If there was more knowledge needed, I would take the entire my client’s birth-date and reduce it getting the resonating birth number. In your case this is 3. This confirms the creativity drawn from Saturn, as you know, three’s deal with creativity. Seems you have a knack for pulling things together out of thin air – making things happen – creating quite a bit from nothing, so to speak.
Numbers also correspond with sounds, even numbers represent major chords (open, harmonious) and odd numbers represent minor chords (clenched, seeking resolution).
I’ve even been known to check out the elemental periodic table for guidance (no kidding). In this case, 22 indicates the atomic number for Titanium. Researching the properties of this metal further confirms attributes of durability, flexibility, and diversity found in the realm of two’s.
I think you get the idea – I use whatever tools I have available to me to help those who need a little additional insight about the spiritual meaning of their numbers.
