Many people on the spiritual path have seen synchronicities in the past few years. In particular, people report seeing repeating numbers on the clock, on license plates, and other places: 11:11, 2:22, 3:33, ect.
Then people search for answers. Millions of people have visited websites talking about Angel Numbers, where meaning is assigned to numbers. Having experienced the number synchronicity thing in a strong way, I feel many of these websites don’t explain much.
So in my process of trying to figure out what the numbers meant, I thought, what is a natural, non-man made way to look at numerology? The answer may lie in the planets and in astrology.
A system of numerology based on the planets is not a man-made construct: Mercury is the first planet. Venus is the second, Earth is the third, Mars is the fourth, ect. This is a mathematical fact regardless of the meaning assigned to things by people.
This article will propose an astrology based system of numerology. I see it like this: if you believe a number means something, then what we call the universe can convey meaning to you through what you think the number means.
A number doesn’t have to mean the same thing to everyone: I think the universe can speak to an individual based on what they think the number means. Some people believe numbers carry their own specific vibration and energy, which seems likely in my opinion too.
Number 1 has a connection to the first planet, Mercury, and the first astrology sign, Aries.
If you combine the energy of Mercury with Aries, you get a quick, fiery, sporadic mental energy. An energy of inception, beginning, the logical left brained way of thinking.
This number could be interpreted as a sign about the logical mind, rational thought processes, machinery, communication, or other Mercury related things. It could also be a sign of some sudden, brief flash of fiery energy (Aries).
The number 2 is related to Venus in more ways than one: Venus is the 2nd planet, and Taurus is the 2nd sign, Venus also being the planet of Taurus.
Venus is about comfort, the home, hobbies and passions, pleasure, social activity, relationships, love, and interactions with other people. Taurus is about the same things, with less emphasis on social activity and interactions with other people.
Therefore, 2 can be a sign of home, hobbies, pleasures, comfort, things being at ease, or social interactions with other people. If one number were to be about love, it would have to be 2. 2 is the number of social interaction.
Number 3 is an interesting one. It doesn’t have much astrological room for interpretation because the Earth itself is the third planet from the Sun. It’s essentially the number of the Earth: the number of this life, this existence, this world and why we are here in the first place. It could be considered the number of the circle, of Pi.
Gemini is the third astrology sign, so 3 could also be about communication, talking, social activity, ect. But 3 seems to be more about Earth and life itself. If you see a 3, or 33, or 333, it might be a sign to pay attention to the forces of Earth and life itself.
4 is a number of emotional fire. Mars is the fourth planet, and Cancer is the fourth astrology sign.
4 can be considered a bad omen in some respects, but in other interpretations it could be a number of heartfelt (Cancer) willingness to fight (Mars): a revolutionary, warrior type energy maybe about standing up for what is right.
It could be considered a bad omen because squares (which have the number 4 embedded into them) are age old symbols of being trapped, being boxed in, being kept down and bound to struggle. The square is perhaps the most brutal astrology aspect of all, and a Grand Cross (4 planets squaring and opposing each other) is one of the most unfortunate astrological configurations possible.
4 could be a bad omen, or a symbol of deep, heartfelt and pure (Cancer) fire and willingness to fight (Mars).
5 is a fire energy, a warm, sunny, large number bearing the energy of Jupiter, the 5th planet, and Leo, the 5th sign.
Since the Sun cannot be numbered as the other planets orbiting the Sun are in this system of numerology, you could consider the number “0” the Sun, or 5 because Leo’s “planet” is the Sun.
5 is bound to be a sign of warmth, fire, and appreciation for the crafts, hobbies, and creative aspects of life (Leo, the Sun).
The number “666” might be so popular because Saturn worship has been in existence for a long time, from Ancient Rome to now.
Saturn is the 6th planet, and it’s unmistakably the most dark, depression inducing, malefic planet. But it’s not always like that: Saturn in positive aspects is about discipline, structure, form, construction, ambition, and creation in a left brain type way.
Virgo is another Earth energy, the 6th sign: it’s an energy of refinement, logic, the mind, health, mindfulness and sharpness.
So 6 is an earthy energy about discipline, refinement, attention to detail, ambition, seriousness, and groundedness. In a worse interpretation it could be a sign of depression to come.
7 could be considered the number of the revolutionary: the thinker, the creator, the musician, the electric spark of idea. Uranus is the 7th planet, and this is what Uranus represents.
Another air energy, Libra, is the 7th sign. Libra is a light, harmonious energy that understands social behavior and the way people interact. Libra understands group psychology, the ways of people and how to bring people together in harmony.
Therefore when you mix the harmonious, socially constructive Libra energy with revolutionary, thinker Uranus, you get a social activist type energy.
The number 8 is a complicated one. On one hand, it is the number of intuition, spirituality, psychic phenomena, everything related to the 8th planet Neptune and the 8th sign Scorpio.
On the other hand, it could be a bad omen like 4. The 8 pointed Star of Inanna, the Octogon, and other symbols with 8 encoded into them are placed all around us in every day life as the square is, as some kind of occult reference to the enslavement of humanity. The 8 pointed star is a symbol found in circles of powerful people, on corporate logos, on government symbols and more.
Researchers such as Mark Passio have explored this symbolism. As these people are known to worship Saturn or Capricorn, symbolism involving squares, cubes, octogons, and 8 pointed stars seem to follow the footsteps of some very powerful people.
The number 9 is a sign of being stuck: a sign of things being stagnant, on a never ending loop, or stuck in a trap. As Sagittarius is the 9th sign, it could also be a sign of being blissfully (Sagittarius) unaware.
People believe the number 9 has properties that mathematically represent being stuck in a never ending loop, because no matter what you do to the number 9, it always seems to reduce back down to 9.
For instance, 9 x 2 is 18. 1 + 8 = 9.
9 x 3 = 27. 7 + 2 = 9.
9 x 4 = 36. 3 + 6 = 9.
So on and so forth: every multiplication of 9 boils back down to 9.
Hopefully people seeking answers to their number synchronicities find this guide useful.
