Master number 33 is considered the Master teacher and the most spiritually evolved of all numbers
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 33: The Master Teacher.

The 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.

The Master number 33 in full force is extremely rare.


The 33 is only considered a Master number 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.


Master Number 33; The Ultimate Teacher


The Master number 33 combines the most proficient powers of expression (the 3) with the teacher and caregiver par excellence, the 6.

Its true essence is the final word in spiritual evolution - the Master Teacher. It comes, therefore, as no surprise that it is the rarest among all Master numbers; there are only a few birthdates that produce a 33, and it is equally rare to find a 33 among the core name numbers.

Master Number 33 is not found in numerology charts very often due to the fact that there are few combinations of birth dates that can produce a 33

When the 33 appears as a Life Path number:

You have all the attributes of the loving, caring, and artistic 6, but in addition the 33 offers a possibility of reaching a truly remarkable status as a genuine teacher of spiritual, philosphical, or humane wisdom. However, mastering the qualities of the 33 is not for the faint of heart, if you are not willing to walk the edge and risk it all, you are unlikely to experience the full power of this Master number.

There is no location in a numerology chart where a 33 Master number can have a bigger influence. Read more here...


When the 33 appears as your Expression number:

The effect of this Master number found as Expression number will be much more practical than when found derived from the date of birth. It will mostly affect your career. Read more here...


When the 33 appears as a Heart's Desire number:

The 33 Master number is not often found as it requires all three or more name sections (first, middle, and last) to have vowels adding to Master Numbers 11 or 22. When it is found, that person is likely to have great difficulty living a normal, middle-of-the-road kind of existence. You will find these people more often in monastaries or globe-trotting, then in a the house next door. Read more here...


When the 33 appears as a Personality number:

A 33 Master Number is extremely rare, but if it does appear it tends to make for a very impressive, and also very vulneralbe outer personality. Read more here...


The 33 Master Number can't appear as a Birth Day number, Period cycle, Pinnacle cycle, or an Essence cycle, as they are mathematically impossible.

From Numerology Questions - a Dear Hans column:

Pankaj asks a question about the Master number 33 and how it affects him.

As it happens, he also has a Birthday number 22.

Dear Hans,

I am huge fan of Numerology and when I hear numerology, a silent mind replies Hans Decoz. I am a huge fan of yours. I was born on 22nd December 1988 in Mumbai, India. After reading some of the resources at your website, I got motivated to learn more about myself.

As you might have calculated, I have a life path Master number 33. This is what I am thinking about. According to Indian Vedic Astrology, I am a Taurean (moon sign). Would you suggest any change of name so thatĀ  I could be more successful in my life? I am just beginning my new career and I wish to get the one percent luck as I am ready to give my work 99 percent.

Mumbai, India

Dear Pankaj,

Thank you for your kind words.

You are correct that your Life Path is a 33 and your Birth Day number is a 22. Without going into details as far as the calculation methods, I can tell you that many 33 Life Paths have either a 22 Birth Day or an 11 Birth Day and an 11 Birth Month - without those the chance of adding to a 33 are small, which is one of those beautiful "coincidences" found in numerology, because without the support of another Master number reaching the full potential of a 33 may be all but impossible.

In your case, you have the support of a 22 coming into fullĀ  bloom sometime around your 30th birthday. You can count on the years that you are 30 and 31 as being extremely dynamic and full of unexpected twists and turns, but they will also set you on the right path as a result of that, something you will not come  to fully appreciate until the months around your 33rd birth date. After that, it will be a gradual process over many years during which you grow into the person you were meant to become.

The 22 is the Master builder, the 33 the Master Teacher (more about the characteristics typical to Master numbers see our Master number article). The challenge you face is finding the strength and independence to grow free from the restraints of other people's, and more importantly, your own expectations. Your internal guide should be to aim for your highest goals without accepting compromises.

You also have to understand that there is nothing to worry about. Your chart is a promising as well as demanding one, but you have also received the necessary tools and resources, so just relax, and keep your focus on what YOU want to do. If what you want to do chances over the years, which it undoubtedly will, chance with it.

As for your name, again a "coincidence" seems to favor you. Your full name at birth produces the following core numbers: A 3 Heart's Desire, A 20/2 Expression, and a 17/8 Personality. The shorter name you go by, Pankaj (last name withheld), provides the core numbers 3, for the Heart's Desire, 11/2 for the Expression, and 17/8 for the Personality. In other words, they are identical to the core numbers in your full name at birth in every way - a very rare occurrence I have not seen in quite some time.

The only exception is that the 2 Expression number is based on an 11 instead of 20. The 11 in your shorter name is helpful as it supports your potential to attain the qualities of a 33 Master number (think of the 11 and 22 in your chart as the stepping stones on your way to a 33).

Even more important is that your short name carries the almost identical energies as does your full name. Because of that, the likelihood that you will find your niche in life is greatly enhanced. Changing your name, even one letter, would be a mistake.
