MASTER NUMBER 33
The Path of the Teacher

The 33 is a highly charged version of the 6 and all characteristics that apply for number 6 also apply for number 33. The characteristics represented by number 6 usually are enhanced in the master number 33.The 33 is the mover and shaker of Master Numbers. With 11 and 22 combined in this number, intuition and dreams reach an entirely new orbit. A 33 used to its full potential means that there’s no personal agenda, only a focus on humanitarian issues. Someone with 33 strongly featured in their chart has the ability to throw themselves into a project that’s more than practical—it can even be spiritual.

The number 33 represents full understanding before communication. In other words, you exercise front-end consideration before speaking. With 33 in your chart, you’re a person who’s highly knowledgeable, but also checks facts before preaching ideas or ideals.

When a 33 does occur in a person’s chart, we may well be looking at a great and significant spiritual leader along the lines of the Dalai Lama or Gandhi. Remember that a 33 is also a Life Path 6—a extremely nurturing and responsible number.

As a Master Number 33, your focus is on reaching the world and uplifting the loving energy of mankind. You’re not concerned with personal ambition. Rather, you have great devotion to a cause. Your desire is to use your life to raise the consciousness of as many people as possible. Your concern is the earth—Gaia—and all of her inhabitants.

Although they don’t seek it, 33 individuals usually achieve fame through acts of kindness, tenderness, and compassion that lead to the transformation of the world’s consciousness. We could be talking about someone with a large public platform—like a Mother Teresa—but we could just as easily be talking about a wonderful first-grade teacher at the local elementary school.

Shadow Side
Always coming up with ideas that other people think are “out there” you can tend to be somewhat reluctant—you hesitate. But if you follow your instincts, others will follow too. And we’ll end up with a kinder, gentler world.

Famous People with a Master Number 33

Master Number 22

MASTER NUMBER 22
The Path of the Builder

The 22 is a highly charged version of the 4 and all characteristics that apply for number 4 also apply for number 22. The characteristics represented by number 4 usually are enhanced in the master number 22.

The Master Number 22 person is pragmatic; they’re a doer, capable of spinning dreams into concrete reality. If you’ve 22 in your chart, you have tremendous potential for success—that’s because you’ve all of the insight and intuition of the number 11, paired with a grounded and scientific approach associated with the number 4. Master Number 22 is an ambitious, but disciplined number.

The 22 person has lofty goals that they bring down to earth and make into a reality; something tangible. They also have leadership and confidence. Your goals are outside of your personal self as you strive to serve the greater good of humanity. You have a great depth of spiritual understanding and the ability to apply knowledge in a practical way—an unbeatable combination that usually produces tremendous success.

It can take someone with this number well into their adulthood before they manifest their dreams because they have to go through trials and learning experiences before they mature enough to incorporate their true calling in their life.

The Shadow Side
If not practical, the 22’s waste their potential. Like the 11, the 22 can easily shrink from their own ambition, causing difficult interior pressures. Both the 11 and the 22 experience the pressure-cooker effect, particularly at an early age. They strive toward the realization of goals that are larger than personal ambition. The 22 serves the world in a practical way.

Unfortunately, not everyone with a 22 in their chart is practical—this is symbolized by the brilliant person you might know who doesn’t “live up to” their potential. This is the danger of both 11 and 22—though both are capable of greatness, they can shy away from great opportunities or apply too much pressure to themselves.

If you have 22 in your chart, ease up and realize your limitless opportunities. Turn down the pressure-cooker and fulfill your shot at serving the world in an effective and practical way.

Master Number 11

Whale Point – Eleuthera Island by Laurie Buchanan

MASTER NUMBER 11
The Path of the Dreamer

Master Number 11 is a highly charged version of the Life Path 2. All of the characteristics that apply to a 2 also apply to an 11, only in a more magnified way. 

As a Master Number 11, you have the potential to be a source of inspiration and illumination to a wide brushstroke of people. Individuals with this Life Path rely on their instinct—they’re intuitive. In fact, you’re the most intuitive of all numbers. It’s your special connection to your subconscious, gut feeling, and knowledge without rationality. You’re energetically sensitive and have a great understanding of others. You intuit a great deal about what’s going on behind the scenes. You’re here to use your gifts of intuition and sensitivity to help others.

Because the number 11 has all the qualities of the 2 (1 + 1 = 2) the negative points of the number—anxiety, shyness, and stressed energy—are balanced out by the 2’s qualities of charisma and divine inspiration.

The Shadow Side
Remember it’s a choice—we can choose to walk in sunshine or shadow; in light or dark.

When not focused on a goal beyond themselves, the Master Number 11 person can be turned inward—creating fears and phobias. The 11 walks the edge between greatness and self-destruction. Your potential for growth, stability, and personal power lies in your acceptance of intuitive understanding, and of spiritual truths. For the 11, such peace is not found so much in logic, but in faith.

The danger of the 11 is that you need to be focused on a concrete goal—when you’re not attached to a specific aspiration, you experience anxiety and fear. You’re extremely powerful and capable of great things, but can also be self-sabotaging when not using the highly charged vibration of 11 correctly.

If you’re a Master number 11, tap into it and use it to create personal power and spiritual evolution. Don’t deny your instincts—let your inner, guiding voice push you toward a great goal.

Famous People with Master Number 11
Al Gore, Bill Clinton, Colin Powell, Jackie Kennedy, Leonardo DiCaprio, George Patton, Michael Jordan, Gene Wilder, Prince Charles, Ronald Reagan, Rose Kennedy, Rush Limbaugh, and Tim McGraw.

Master Numbers – An Overview
In Numerology, most numbers are reduced to a single digit number 1-9. There are three numbers that are exceptions to this rule—they’re known as Master Numbers.

Master Numbers 11, 22, and 33 are more intense versions of the single-digit numbers they replce—2, 4, and 6 respectively. People born under these vibrations have stronger learning patterns from birth, and at times—when they’re aware of their full potential—can lead extraordinary lives. It’s a matter of choice; of free will.

These three numbers are called Master Numbers because they have a higher vibration than the other numbers. They’re highly charged, difficult to handle, and require time, maturity, and great effort to integrate into one’s personality.

For those of you who’ve been following along in the Numerically Speaking series, you’ll remember that the Life Path number is derived from your full date of birth. There’s more than one way the math can be done. Let’s use Jackie Kennedy’s date of birth – July 28, 1929 – to show our work:

July is the seventh month—7
The day 28, 2+8 equals 10 which reduces [1+0] to 1
The year 1+9+2+9 equals 21 which reduces [2+1] to 3

Now add the month, day, and year together 7 + 1 + 3 = 11 and you have your Life Path Number. In this case, 11—one of the three Master Numbers 11, 22, and 33—doesn’t get reduced any further. All other numbers are reduced to a single digit between 1 and 9.

11—The Master Dreamer
The number 11 represents vision. It’s the most intuitive of all numbers.

The Master Number 11 is a dreamer. The 11 represents illumination—a channel to the subconscious, insight without rational thought, and sensitivity, nervous energy, shyness, and impracticality. The 11 has all the aspects of the 2, enhanced and charged with charisma, leadership, and inspiration. It’s a number with inborn duality, which creates dynamism, inner-conflict, and other catalyzes with its mere presence.

22—The Master Builder
The number 22 combines vision and action. It’s the most powerful of all numbers.

The Master Number 22 is a builder. The 22 can turn the most ambitious of dreams into reality. It’s potentially the most successful of all numbers. It has many of the inspirational insights of the 11, combined with the practicality and methodical nature of the 4. It’s unlimited, yet disciplined. It has big ideas, great plans, idealism, leadership, and enormous self-confidence.

33—The Master Teacher
The number 33 offers guidance to the world. It’s the rarest and most influential of all numbers.

The Master Number 33 is a teacher. The 33 combines the 11 and the 22 and brings their potential to another level. When expressed to the fullest, the 33 lacks all personal ambition, and instead focuses its considerable abilities toward the spiritual uplifting of mankind. What makes the 33 especially impressive, is the high level of sincere devotion. This is shown in its determination to seek understanding and wisdom before preaching to others. The 33 in full force is extremely rare.

Over the next three posts, we’ll take a closer look at each of the Master Numbers.

In showcasing Life Path numbers 1-9, I used simple, subdued photographs that I took during my 2010 year-end visit to southern California. In keeping with the beach theme, you’ll notice that for the Master Numbers—magnified Life Paths 2, 4, and 6—I’m using very bright, vivid photographs that I took almost a year ago when Len and I celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary on Eleuthera Island in the Bahamas.

Life Path 9

Life Path 9 by Laurie Buchanan

Life Path 9 by Laurie Buchanan

LIFE PATH 9
The Path of the Humanitarian

If you missed the post on how to calculate your Life Path number, simply click HERE.

A 9 Life Path is the sum total of all the other numbers. Therefore, it carries all of the same attributes and negatives attendant to each, making your energy highly charged in every way.

You’re utopian. You spend your life trying to realize some aspect of your utopian dream—sacrificing money, time, and energy for a better world. It’s in giving that you find much satisfaction. You have a broad outlook on life. You tend to see the big picture, rather than the minute details. The person with a 9 Life Path is rarely prejudiced or accepts social biases of people. Instead, they evaluate people on the basis of what they can do for—contribute to—the larger cause.

You have a healthy imagination and are extremely creative, especially at harmoniously arranging the beauty already potential in the environment. These abilities can lead you into fields such as interior decorating, landscape art, and photography. But because of your strong social consciousness, you can be an effective politician, lawyer, judge, minister, teacher, healer, or environmentalist. Vocations that require self-sacrifice and have a clear positive social impact are common among 9s.

You’re often disappointed by the realities of life, the shortcomings of others, or of yourself. You don’t want to accept the imperfections of the world, a feeling that drives you constantly to try to improve upon it. Rather than being satisfied with your efforts, and those of others, you relentlessly push on, striving for even greater accomplishments.

A key to your personality is the necessity of sacrifice. One of your lessons is learning to let go of material possessions and relationships; learning that holding on too tightly to anything causes pain. The most successful and satisfying road for a Life Path 9 is giving, sharing, and sacrificing for a larger goal without expecting anything in return.

Doing for others is one of your finest characteristics, and you derive extreme pleasure from knowing that you were able to help in some way. If you’re a 9 with financial means, you’d do well to tie your personal fortunes to an endeavor that makes the world a better place for others. Very often, this turns into a highly successful and lucrative enterprise. Your life rests on the axiom that the more one gives, the larger the reward.

The Life Path 9 suggests that you entered this plane with an abundance of dramatic feelings coupled with a strong sense of compassion and generosity. The key to the nature of a Life Path number 9 is found in their humanitarian attitude. The 9, being the highest of the single digit numbers, holds an elevated position in terms of responsibilities to mankind.

Material gain is not overly important, although some Life Path 9 people are materially rewarded in significant ways. In this, however, the 9 Life Path is not apt to get rich since they’re very generous—many times to a fault—and usually have an easy come, easy go attitude about money.

The 9 Life Path indicates you have a commanding presence. You have the ability to make friends easily, as people are attracted to your magnetic, open personality. You meet people easily and are quickly befriended because of your openness and amiable demeanor. Your genial ways often put you in the lead in whatever you pursue.

Your quite inquisitive and your extreme sensitivity makes you understand and respond easily to people, atmosphere, attitudes, music, sounds, color, and personalities. This makes you very perceptive and accentuates your interest in the meaning behind everything you come across. All things mystic appeal to you and you feel the need to delve deeper—to see for yourself just what they may hold for you.

You tend to be quite sensitive because you experience through the lens of feeling. The number 9’s deep understanding of life is sometimes manifested in the artistic and literary fields. If drama and acting isn’t your forte, it will surely be an area of great interest and potential. Likewise, you may be able to express your deep emotional feelings through painting, writing, music, or other art forms.

The purpose of life for those with a 9 life path is often of a philosophical nature. Judges, spiritual leaders, healers, and educators frequently have much 9 energy. The number is less inclined to the competitive business environment and may even find this a struggle.

The Shadow Side
Because of the demanding nature of the truly positive 9, many tend to fail in this category. It’s not uncommon for persons with the 9 life path to fight the realities and challenges of purpose imposed here because selflessness isn’t an easy trait.

You may have difficulty believing that giving and a lack of ambition for personal gain can be satisfying. It must be realized and accepted that little long-term satisfaction and happiness is to be gained by rejecting the natural humanitarian inclinations of this path.

You’re romantic, but your love is more impersonal because you tend to be focused on your dreams. When you’re not in harmony with your true nature, you can fall to moodiness, or become aloof, and withdrawn. You can become timid, uncertain, and ungrateful, putting the blame for your troubles on others or the world.

Your concern for and interest in others tends to unnerve you at times, causing you to either rise to the heights of ecstasy or sink into the depths of depression.

Famous People with Life Path 9
Troy Aikman, Christina Applegate, Tyra Banks, Jack Black, Andrea Bocelli, Garth Brooks, Jim Carrey, Cher, Kirsten Dunst, Laurence Fishburne, Harrison Ford, Morgan Freeman, Cuba Gooding, Jr., Matt Groening, Ed Harris, Dustin Hoffman, Anthony Hopkins, Whitney Houston, Ricki Lake, Spike Lee,  Loretta Lynn, Shirley MacLaine, Bill Murray, Tom Petty, Lisa Marie Presley, Michael Richards, Gavin Rossdale, Kurt Russell, Garry Shandling, Sharon Stone, Jonathan Taylor Thomas, Kristin Scott Thomas, John Updike, and Renee Zellweger.

Life Path 9 Compatibility
The Life Path 9 person has a natural fit with Life Paths 3, 6, and 9. They get along well with Life Paths 1 and 5. They’re neutral with Life Paths 2 and 7. But they find a challenge (or need to compromise) with Life Paths 4 and 8.

Life Path 8

Life Path 8 by Laurie Buchanan

Life Path 8 by Laurie Buchanan

LIFE PATH 8
The Path of the Warrior

If you missed the post on how to calculate your Life Path number, simply click HERE.

You’re gifted with natural leadership and the capacity to accumulate great wealth—should you so desire.You attract financial success more than any other Life Path, but effort is required—should you so desire.

You have the capacity for management in all areas of life, especially in business and financial matters—should you so desire.

Fame, power, and fortune are the three corners of your crown—should you so desire.

A great connoisseur of the finer things in life, you especially appreciate the arts—visual, performing, language, and culinary. Your home is generally a showplace of your interests, yet it expresses the warmth of your personality and charm.

You understand the material world and intuitively know what makes virtually any enterprise work. Your talent lies with the greater vision, its purpose, and long-range goals. You possess the ability to inspire people to join you in your quest—should you so desire.

Business, finance, real estate, law, science (particularly history, archeology, and physics), publishing, and the management of large institutions are among the vocational fields that suit you best. You’re naturally attracted to positions of influence and leadership—politics, social work, and teaching are among the many other areas where your abilities can shine—should you so desire.

As a leader and a teacher—a person who influences—those in your sphere of influence need your continual guidance, inspiration, and encouragement. You must prod them into action and direct them along the lines of your vision.

With such ability, you’d do well to align yourself with large groups or organizations; the larger the group, the larger your rewards, whether financial or spiritual. A great sense of what is right helps you to direct your efforts. Your interest in philanthropic organizations can be extremely useful to them because you have the ability to draw to them what many others can’t—accomplishing so much more.

You’re very perceptive and understand human nature. As such, you have profound sympathy for people less fortunate than you. Courage is one of your greatest assets and you display it often in fighting for equal rights for all mankind. The underdog is your pet project. Your lifetime is spent in lending a hand to anyone who needs it, and that which is given is always returned many-fold.

Material things will be yours without much effort—should you so desire—but your happiness will also be spiritual in the knowledge that you’ve accomplished something unique by sheer dint of your ability.

The Life Path 8 suggests that you entered this plane armed to lead, direct, organize, and govern. You’re endowed with tremendous potential for conceiving far-reaching schemes and ideas, and also possess the tenacity and independence to follow them through to completion. In short, you were born to be an executive.

You know how to manage yourself and your environment. Your ability to judge the character and potential of the people around you is an asset. Your inspirational quality goes a long way toward engaging them in your endeavors—a special trait not to be overlooked.

The Life Path 8 produces many powerful, confident, and materially successful people. A large part of their success comes from how hard they work. Take care, this Life Path is the most prone to producing workaholics. You may be very much in love, but watch that you’re not too busy and preoccupied to show it. You must make time for love and nurture it.

The Shadow Side
The negative 8 can be dictatorial and often suppresses the enthusiasm and efforts of fellow members of the environment. The strength of their own personality can exclude close feelings for other people with whom they come in contact.

Material gains and rewards often become issues of utmost importance, even to the neglect of family, home, and peace of mind. Dedication to success can become an obsession.

Emotional feelings are often suppressed by the negative 8, resulting in isolation and loneliness. All Life Path 8 people must avoid discounting the opinions of others.

Famous People with Life Path 8
Giorgio Armani, Neil Armstrong, Warren Beatty, Kate Beckinsale, Halle Berry, Jessica Biel, Cate Blanchett, Sandra Bullock, Naomi Campbell, Deepak Chopra, Cindy Crawford, Penelope Cruz, Matt Damon, Ted Danson, Hilary Duff, Bob Dylan, Jane Fonda, Aretha Franklin, Andy Garcia, Richard Gere, Gene Hackman, Faith Hill, Philip Enrique Iglesias, Tommy Lee Jones, Nathan Lane, Dylan McDermott, Sarah McLachlan, Paul Newman, Natasha Richardson, Diane Sawyer, David Schwimmer, Martin Scorsese, Elisabeth J. Shue, Martha Stewart, Ben Stiller, Oliver Stone, Barbara Streisand, Elizabeth Taylor, Robin Williams, and Yanni.

Life Path 8 Compatibility
The Life Path 8 person has a natural fit the Life Paths 2, 4, and 8. They get along well with Life Path 6. They’re neutral with Life Paths 1 and 5. But they find a challenge (or need to compromise) with Life Paths 3, 7, and 9.

Life Path 7

Life Path 7 by Laurie Buchanan

Life Path 7 by Laurie Buchanan

LIFE PATH 7
The Path of the Loner

If you missed the post on how to calculate your Life Path number, simply click HERE.

The nature of a Life Path 7 person is intellectual and introspective. You delve into everything in an effort to find out what makes it tick. You rarely accept things at face value. Rather, you must see for yourself that your own opinions are sound. When the germ of an idea is absorbed into your subconscious, you meditate and turn it over in your mind until you fully understand every aspect. Only then do you act on it or discard it. This process leads you to the discovery of great philosophical truths, which you use, in turn, to your advancement as well as in the consolation and healing of the troubled. You’re psychic—you possess a certain knowing—and often experience déjà vu, a sense of having lived a certain experience before.

Yours is the role of philosopher, teacher, and healer, but it’s not easy for you to teach until you loosen up a bit. Your reserved nature gives people the impression that you’re unapproachable. Only those who understand your quiet, contemplative moods can get through to you. These are the fortunate ones because you have so much to give.

Your interests are mainly cultural and philosophical—you pursue the intellectual. The finer things in life are as necessary to you as the air you breathe. All things beautiful capture your keen interest: a well-done painting, a beautiful sculpture, or a good book. You’re the rare individual who enjoys every stroke of the brush in a painting, not just the overall effect. Because of this trait, you’re a connoisseur of the finest ilk. Life Path 7’s make excellent parents because they teach their children to appreciate all of the beauty that life has to offer, both in an intellectual and a physical sense.

Your reserved manner wraps you in a mantle of dignity. Respect from one and all is your heritage, and you accept it with grace. Because you have to face a wide brushstroke of obstacles, life is often disappointing to you, but you see disappointments as opportunities to delve into the hidden truths of life and use this knowledge to better yourself and your life. This spiritual and practical knowledge you glean is your vehicle to happiness.

Never hurry—take the time for rest and meditation. There’s no need to be concerned with economics, for you generally have what you need. The fate of the mystic, as for a 7, is to study, question, apply, and teach the secrets of the soul. As such, Providence always takes care of your material needs. This is a rare gift and should be used well.

The Life Path 7 suggests that you entered this plane with a gift for investigation, analysis, and keen observation. You’re a thinker of the first order. You evaluate situations quickly and with amazing accuracy. As a result, you’re thorough and complete in your work—the perfectionist who expects everyone else to meet a high standard of performance, too.

A Life Path 7 person is a peaceful and affectionate soul. But you guard your connection to people carefully. It’s easy for you to detect deception and recognize insincere people. When you do, you give them a wide berth. You aren’t one to have a large circle of friends, but once you accept someone as a friend, it’s for life. Most 7’s are charming and refined individuals with great poise and a quick wit.

Nonetheless, there’s a certain reclusiveness about you. While others enjoy being around you, you don’t necessarily enjoy being around them. Your reserve is often mistaken for aloofness, but there’s no rush. It takes time for you to warm up to new friends. Clubs and organizations hold little interest for you—you’re not a joiner.

You enjoy your own company—you actually thrive on being alone, away from the hustle and bustle life. You need a good deal of quiet time to be with your own inner thoughts and dreams. You dislike crowds, noise, distractions, and confusion.

As mentioned before, the keynote of 7’s strength is reflected in their depth of thought. 7’s garner knowledge from practically every source they find. Intellectual, scientific, and studious, you don’t accept a premise until you have dissected the subject and arrived at your own independent conclusion.

7 is considered a spiritual number and it often denotes a spiritual wisdom that becomes apparent at a fairly early age. A built-in inner guidance system provides you with a strong sense of intuition—almost a law unto yourself. Whatever spiritual position you take, traditional or not, you cling to it with fervor. Once you’ve decided on an issue, you’re tenacious. It’s almost impossible to get you to revisit the question. Adaptability is not your style, and change for you is a rarity.

Rather than accepting advice, you rely on your own experiences and your intuition. Your hunches usually prove to be accurate and knowing this, you confidently follow the directions they guide.

The Shadow Side
Your shadow side has you leaning toward moodiness, standoffishness, and secretiveness—none of which furthers your image. As a result, many people find you cold and unemotional, making it difficult to enter relationships. Worst case scenario, you may also be devious and calculating.

In the most negative use of the 7 energies, you can be pessimistic, lackadaisical, quarrelsome, and secretive. A Life Path 7 individual who’s not living life fully and gaining through experiences, is a hard person to live with because of their lack of consideration for others. Operating on the negative side of the 7 can produce a selfish and spoiled individual and living with one can be a challenge. This may be why some 7s prefer living alone.

Fortunately, the negative 7 is not the typical 7, at least not without some mitigating positive traits. This number is one that seems to have some major shifts from highs to lows. Stability in feelings may be elusive for you.

Famous People with Life Path 7
Paula Abdul, Muhammad Ali, Dan Aykroyd, Joan Baez, Christian Bale, Antonio Banderas, Candice Bergan, Valerie Bertinelli, Robert Blake, Ellen Burstyn, Eric Clapton, Glenn Close, Harry Connick, Jr., Geena Davis, Johnny Depp, Leonardo Dicaprio, Shannen Doherty, Michael Douglas, Fran Drescher, Carmen Electra, Carrie Fisher, Mel Gibson, John Goodman, Kelsey Grammer, Hugh Grant, Charles Grodin, Ethan Hawke, Tommy Hilfiger, Janet Jackson, Keria Knightley, Angela Lansbury, Heath Ledger, Lyle Lovett, Ewan McGregor, Toni Morrison, Al Pacino, Matthew Perry, Natalie Portman, Julia Roberts, Susan Sarandon, Jerry Seinfeld, Danielle Steel, Patrick Stewart, Emma Thompson, Tanya Tucker, and Naomi Watts.

Life Path 7 Compatibility
The Life Path 7 person has a natural fit with 1, 5, and 7. They get along well with Life Path 4. They’re neutral with Life Path 9, but they find a challenge (or need to compromise) with Life Paths 2, 3, 6, and 8.
