Question: MASTER NUMBER 33

Numerologist and author Hans Decoz

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 Sir. 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.
