Numerology reduces all compound numbers to single digits, with the exception of Master numbers.
In addition to their unique attributes described below, the Master Numbers 11, 22, and 33, share a range of intriguing and powerful influences. They all strain the nervous system and have a “pressure-cooker” effect; the deep-seated and often subconscious recognition that “you are meant to do something special.”
If you have Master numbers in your numerology chart, you will find it quite challenging to "master" the powerful qualities of these numbers. They are highly charged, difficult to handle, and require time, maturity, and effort to integrate into one's personality.
However, they are also rewarding, even if you don’t feel you live up to their potential; they tend to widen your perspective and imagination and expand your potential to aim high.
The 11, 22, and 33 are Master numbers not because they have two identical digits, but because those digits are 1, 2, and 3 respectively – creating a Triangle of Enlightenment. All other numbers with identical digits are Power numbers - numbers with a more intense influence that is strongly felt, but not quite the same as Master numbers.
The 11 is the most intuitive of all numbers. It represents illumination; a channel to the subconscious; insight without rational thought; and sensitivity, nervous energy, shyness, and impracticality. It is a dreamer.
Numerology's Master number 11 has all the aspects of the 2, but is considerably enhanced and charged with charisma, leadership, and inspiration. It is a number with inborn duality, which creates dynamism, inner conflict, and other catalysts with its mere presence. A number that, when not focused on a goal beyond itself, can be turned inward to create fear and phobias.
Its potential for growth, stability, and personal power lies in its acceptance of intuitive understanding and spiritual truths. For the 11, peace is not found so much in logic, but in faith. The 11 is the psychic's number.

Master number 22 is potentially the most successful of all numbers in numerology. It is the most powerful of all numbers and often called the Master Builder.
The Master number 22 can turn the most ambitious of dreams into reality, but only when it is supported properly by other numbers in the chart.
The 22 has many of the inspirational insights of the 11, combined with the practicality and methodical nature of the 4, making it unlimited yet disciplined; it sees the archetype and brings it down to earth in a material form. It has big ideas, expansive plans, idealism, leadership, and self-confidence.
Like the 11, the 22 can easily shrink from its own ambition causing difficult interior pressures. Both Master numbers, the 11 and the 22, experience the pressure-cooker effect strongly, particularly at an early age.
Numerology's Master number 22 must work toward the realization of goals that are larger than personal ambition. The 22 serves the world in a practical way.

The Master number 33 is considered the Master teacher and the most spiritually evolved of all numbers.
The 33 is the most influential of all numbers; it combines the 11 and the 22, boosting their potential to another level.
When expressed to the fullest, the 33 lacks personal ambition and instead focuses its considerable ability on the spiritual uplifting of humanity. What makes the 33 especially impressive, is its high level of sincere devotion.
Numerology's Master number 33 is only considered and activated when found among the core numbers of your chart: The Life Path, Heart's Desire, Expression, Personality, and Maturity number, or as an Essence cycle or Pinnacle cycle. In all other cases the 33 should be reduced to a 6.
