In numerology there are numbers and then there are master numbers. A master number is either 11 or 22. They are considered highly charged versions of the numbers 2 and 4, based upon their additive properties. Each represents specific aspects of the personality and behavior.
The number 11 is strongly associated with intuition. It represents illumination and a path into the inner workings of the self. Possessing all the aspects connected with the number 2 it is a more intense version of the same characteristics; leadership, charisma and inspiration. For those who encounter this master number in their readings, it is important that they listen to their inner voice and evaluate their motivations carefully. Faith plays an important role in their decisions and actions.
The number 22 relates to unlimited potential with discipline. Sometimes called the Master Builder, this number brings together the characteristics of the 4, but at a heightened level. Filled with self confidence, 22s have the potential to accomplish great deeds. They make big plans and have great vision and leadership skills. But untamed these same characteristics can be detrimental.
Many numerologists continue the concept of master numbers on up through 99, with each number representing specific tendencies. Traditionally, though, only 11 and 22 are considered to be true Master Numbers. Understanding where to stop contracting the numbers in a person’s life is part of the skill of the trained numerologist. These kinds of decisions are important in completing an accurate reading when helping someone understand their path.
If you are going to invest in a reading it is important to know what kind of individual is performing the service. Find someone who has a good deal of experience and truly understands the math and art behind numerology. Just like your other numbers, a master number reveals things about your personality and motivation that might help you understand yourself even better.
