Master number 22 is called the Master builder and potentially the most successfull of all numbers in numerology
What is Numerology; with numerologist Hans Decoz

Numerology reduces all compound numbers to single digits, with the exception of Master numbers.

There are three Master Numbers in Numerology: 11, 22, and 33.

Master Number 22: The Master Builder.

This is potentially the most successful of all numbers in numerology. It is the most powerful of all numbers and often called the Master Builder. 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.

If not practical, 22s waste their potential.

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.


Master Number 22; Intuition Made Practical

Similarly, the Master number 22 combines a double dose of intuitive power represented by the 2, with the ultimate capacity to make dreams into reality, the domain of the 4.

Again, the result is not just a range of attributes stacked to impressive potential, but the true essence of the 22; the ability to experience all that the 11 has to offer and apply it to the material world.


What does it mean when a Master Number 22 appears among one of your core numbers.

For Master Number 22 to appear as a Life Path or Birth Day number, either the month, the day, or the year has to add to a Master Number.

When the 22 appears as a Life Path number:

In addition to the qualities of a 4, the Master builder qualities of 22 make it possible for you to break boundaries and do something that makes a real difference. As with all numbers found as Life Path numbers, the strength of this number increases with age.

This is by far the most fortunate location in a chart to find a 22, however, if not lived up to, it can cause a lifetime of frustration. Read more here...


When the 22 appears as a Birth Day number:

If you are born on the 22nd, the influence of the 22 is most strongly (but not exclusively) felt during the middle part of your life, when the 22 is your Period Cycle from your early thirties through your late fifties. Read more here...


When the 22 appears as your Expression number:

You will find the influence of this Master number most potent in the area of your career, but it can be quite a challenging influence in your personal life and your relationships. Read more here...


When the 22 appears as a Heart's Desire number:

A 22 Master number in this location makes it difficult for you to live up to your own expectations. It is absolutely crucial you don't get down on yourselves for not reaching your dreams and your goals as quickly as you hoped; you set the bar for yourself very high, perhaps too high.

When the 22 appears as a Personality number:

A 22 Master Number found as your Personality number can be a great asset, because it affects the way you present yourself and the way you interact with others. While not obvious in the first twenty or thirty years of your life, it will almost certainly make you an impressive personality by the time you are fully mature. Read more here...


When the 22 appears as a Maturity number:

Master numbers found as a Maturity number don't have much effect until well in your thirties. It may cause a major career change around that time and even send you back to school.


When the 22 appears as a Period or Pinnacle cycle:

If the 22 appears as one of the long-term cycles, it's effect can be very dramatic. It may not cause a career change, but it does tend to turn people towards self-employment or they become entrepreneurs. You can read about the 22 Period Cycle here...


When the 22 appears as an Essence cycle:

As with other Master numbers, much depends on how long that cycle runs as they can be anywhere from 1 to 9 years. A 22 in place for just a couple of years tends to have little "master number" effect, but if the cycle runs 4 or more years, it can potentially be the force needed for a major accomplishment.
