NUMEROLOGY MEANING OF SINGLE DIGIT NUMBERS

The single-digit numbers, 1 – 9, form the foundation of the science of Numerology.

Each of these numbers has its own personality — strengths, shortcomings, quirks — so to get a good understanding of how numbers affect us, it helps to get to know each of these numbers as if it were a person with its own unique traits. Get to know what each number means as we introduce you to each one personally!

In Numerology, each of the nine single-digit numbers has a personality — a limited range of qualities and traits that makes it unique and recognizable. To me each number is a character, like any human being. In order to understand how numbers affect us based on their location in the chart, it helps to get to know each single digit number as if it were a person.

The goal is to get beyond each number being just a list of positive and negative qualities and to, instead, make each number come alive — to sense how the numbers play off of each other.
