The Master Numbers; with numerologist Hans Decoz



There are three double-digit numbers that require special emphasis and attention.

They are the Master Numbers 11, 22, and 33.

These numbers possess more potential than other numbers and a good understanding of their influence and meaning can greatly improve the quality of your life.

Let’s see if you have any in your chart, then read their meaning below. Master numbers are especially important when they are found among the core numbers, in particular the Life Path Number.

How do I find my Master number?


You can use our master number chart calculator to see if you have an 11, 22, or 33 (as well as all the other numbers in your chart).

If you are like most people, the idea of having one is quite intriguing, but… be careful what you ask for; they offer great potential, but there are also negative effects associated with them; they 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.”

Furthermore, and this is not well understood even among professional numerologists, if you have Master numbers in your chart, you may find it rather challenging to "master" their powerful qualities. 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 yet, because they tend to widen your perspective and imagination and expand your potential to aim high.

What does it mean to see Master numbers repeatedly?


They are messengers: If it’s an 11, trust your intuition more and your rational thinking less. If it’s a 22, there is an opportunity to do something big and you need to grab it. If it’s a 33, open your mind, there is a spiritual teacher reaching out to you.

But there is more. From a symbolic perspective, the master number meaning reflects the ultimate expression and belongs in an entirely different realm; the ability to reach spiritual enlightenment (the 11) can become a reality in the material world (the 22), then lift others into enlightenment (the 33).

They are a symbolic expression as well as a guide to reaching the ultimate freedom; the highest possible realm of existence: enlightenment.


The Influence of Master Numbers is Relative


The Master number meaning doesn’t tell us they are a guarantee of anything. Our freedom of choice is our true power.

If our master number calculator doesn’t show the presence of a single 11, 22, or 33 in your chart, that doesn’t mean the ultimate freedom is not within your reach, and if it shows you have several Master numbers, that does not mean the path to fulfillment, or the special power of these numbers are yours for the taking; they require effort, focus, and even opportunity. 

When you have Master numbers in your chart, you should know that their power and potential are present – they are part of who you are. However, that doesn’t mean you are “obligated” to apply it.

Some people who have Master numbers carry a self-made burden of guilt or disappointment, because they don’t feel they have lived up to their potential. This is an unfortunate side effect of living today, when too much is measured against how “successful” you are, as opposed to who you are as a human being.

Often, the influence of Master numbers is expressed in a person’s character and personality, with all the positive benefits that entails.


Why are only 11, 22, and 33 classified as Master Numbers?


All numbers with identical digits, 44, 55, 66, 77, 88, and 99, are more powerful than other single-digit numbers or double-digit numbers. They are called Power numbers and carry a more intense influence that is strongly felt, due simply because the number contains two identical digits - a double serving of their innate qualities, so to speak - but they are not considered Master numbers.

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. To have double servings of their qualities, combined with the value of their sum is what makes them special.

The eleven has twice the power of a 1 but dominated by the sensitivity and intuition of the 2. When the 11 is fully expressed, it is not just the Intuitive, it is the Confident Intuitive.  

A 22 personality is the sensitive, intuitive two, dominated by the pragmatic 4 – hence the Master Builder.

Thirty-three is a double whammy of the creative, free-spirited 3, but dominated by the loving, responsible, caring 6 – perhaps the most promising combination of all.


For a Master number to have real potential, they must be found among one of the core numbers (Life Path, Expression, Heart's Desire or Soul Urge, Personality, or Birth Day number), the Maturity Number, a Period or Pinnacle Cycle, or the Essence cycle.
