Numbers can span up to infinity due to its plentiful character. Nevertheless, it is quite impossible to have these abundant numbers without the very elementary and fundamental numbers. These fundamental numbers are the reason these other numbers exist, and they traverse from 1 up to 9. Numbers 1 to 9 are also referred to as the “building block of Numerology” because they are the foundation of the science of Numerology. Each of these numbers has its own shortcomings and strengths thereby making them substantial as we navigate through the success-journey of life. It is a good habit to get to properly know these numbers and to have an understanding of they affect our everyday lives.
The goal is to actually surpass the idea of each number representing a list of either positive or negative values, but to make each of these numbers come alive by understanding how these numbers interact with each other and how certain things in our lives are influenced by this interaction. The descriptions of these single-digits are quite extreme and no human being exists who reflects only one number. There is a mental and spontaneous connections with the personalities of the single-digit numbers; having a clear and in-depth understanding will eventually make you know these numbers not because you’ve taken your time to just memorize them but because you have either an acquaintance, a friend, or a family who exhibits some of these qualities up to the point that you can easily predict the response of such person to certain circumstances.
In Numerology, the single digit ‘1’ is the first number and it denotes independence, individualism and ability. Among the nine single-digit numbers, ‘1’ takes a special place. Since ‘1’ is the first number, it is therefore a loner and unaccompanied which suggests that this number is governed by loneliness and the number ‘1’ illustrates being alone. If you are a ‘1’, even when you are in a relationship, it’s going to be very easy for you to be on your own and not feel lonely. You will love being in a relationship but also enjoy being alone.
From a spiritual perspective, number ‘1’ is the number of creation. It represents the ancient force from which other numbers are begotten (as opposed to zero which indicates that nothing could ever come into existence). This number represents the power of creation itself. Number ‘1’ is a doer, a powerful force that has the capability to produce results without allowing any form of limitation to its productive skill. It is a number that can’t be side-lined because it is always confident; it is always I the forefront – leading and directing others in the right path; an upright number, strong, determined, and goal-oriented.
The number ‘1’ is also very aggressive, with the ability of channelling necessary energy and resources into creating and producing. It is a strong and determined number that has the ability of turning dreams into reality regardless of the obstacles or antagonizing forces in play; it will either push aside the various obstacles or drill through them. Number ‘1’ is resilient, brave and very courageous, and hates hypocrisy. Due to the nature of this number, it is also a very jealous and extremely stubborn one that has the tendency of backstabbing. Number ‘1’ is a predominantly masculine number.
If you are a 1, you will derive a lot of satisfaction and enjoyment from what you do. And if an individual could totally be a 1, such person would be very successful and intimidating, as well as extremely unpleasant and dangerous.
Number ‘2’ is a feminine number which expresses feminine energy. It comes second after the number ‘1’. Number ‘2’ can be regarded as the ultimate diplomat and peacemaker that is very patient, caring, gentle, diplomatic, understanding, and forgiving. In most instances, the number ‘2’ is underestimated or considered to be weak, most especially when it comes to matters regarding strength and power. Do not be mistaken, this numbers survives virtually all obstacles and opposition due to its tactical, adaptive and resilient nature.
The number ‘2’ is a gentle partner meant to balance the masculinity of ‘1’. Considering the shapes of both numbers, when a ‘1’ is undergoing numerous challenges and enough pressure is applied to it, it doesn’t give up continues fighting due to its nature. With time, it gets broken, crushed, and eventually shattered. Meanwhile for a ‘2’, with a bent shape as if its back and knee are bowed in humility has the ability to use her flexible, resilient, and elastic nature during tribulations thereby surviving with little or no harm sustained. The number ‘2’ is a companion for ‘1’ and is often the true power behind the throne because decisive ability, cunningness and other traits needed for survival comes from her.
‘2’ is an invaluable asset, a wise and loyal confidant beside her king. She is emotionally demanding, expecting you to be devoted to her, the same way she is to you. She admires everyone and expects that she ought to be treated like a princess. She is quite sensitive and sometimes a drama queen when you do not pay enough attention to her. Number ‘2’ is a talkative who is verbally abusive, jealous, vengeful whenever she feels mistreated, and cruel whenever she decides to punish her antagonists.
The number ‘3’ basically means teamwork. It inherits both the characteristics of number ‘1’ and ‘2’ to make up itself. Number ‘3’ is generous, playful, clever, skilled, possesses a rare youthful energy that serves as inspiration to others. If you are a number ‘3’, everyone wants to be with you because of your charm, charisma, and abilities. You will also exhibit mixed character in the sense that you will need guidance on the best ways to channel and apply those amazing characters, you will be quick to anger and very temperamental, showcasing your aggressiveness and impatience randomly.
Since the number ‘3’ comprises of both masculine and feminine numbers ‘1’ and ‘2’, it therefore mixes traits from both numbers. Number ‘3’ is just like an endowed teenager who has been able to inherit some traits from the DNA of both his parents though sometimes spoilt and always in need of proper guidance. Number ‘3’ is also strong, emotional, always happy, and in most instances very lucky. This number possesses a rare form of inner peace, great wisdom, and a sense of contentment.
Since number ‘3’ is sometimes compared to an endowed teenager, this number often exhibits some of the mischievous characteristics of a teenager like unwillingness to take up responsibility, a firm tendency of procrastinating, inability to finish projects that was successfully started, lack of focus and direction amongst so many others. When it comes to matters involving relationship, it is a bit challenging especially when it involves loyalty and commitment. Number ‘3’ is always jealous, exhibits self-pity, and quite vulnerable. These traits make it difficult for a ‘3’ to be fully committed when it involves a long-term commitment in a relationship.
Spiritually, number ‘3’ symbolises a triangle which is a three-sided shape known to represent the beginning, middle, and the end of something. Switching it in correlation with humans, it constitutes the three build-up of man which is the body, soul, and the spirit. Amongst Christians also, number ‘3’ denotes the three forms in which God exists otherwise known as the trinity. It comprises of the God the FATHER, God the SON, and God the HOLY SPIRIT.
Among the single-digit numbers, number ‘4’ is the most grounded and down to earth number. The major characteristics of a ‘4’ are dependability, productivity, patience, punctuality, trustworthiness, obedience, amongst a lot of others. The number ‘4’ is definitely a masculine number as it is the “worker bee” of Numerology. It has a masculine nuance which is evidence by a sense of duty and obligation, ethics, and persistence. It is a goal-oriented number that always strives for perfection and can be very successful in the military due to its natural discipline.
Considering the shape of the number ‘4’, it has a hard angle which represents a straight-edged, workaholic individual who is not so creative but good with his hands. A ‘4’ isn’t promiscuous and doesn’t know how to handle chaos, might even get panic attack if a situation has fully-fledged beyond his control. If your life path number is a ‘4’, you have the tendency of being an amazing event planner, an organizer, an administrator, in whom others are solely dependent. You will be extraordinary at seeing both the details and the larger picture, though you may at some point pay too much attention to details, often to the extent that you might miss important matters in life.
The number isn’t regarded by the Chinese and it is ultimately not favoured because it means “death” in the Cantonese dialect. This therefore has lots of negative impact on how they relate and associate with the number. Most of them purposely omit the number in their everyday lives because of its meaning, though this doesn’t properly justify the number. If the digits of a date add up to four, it is a great date to implement projects, to develop new idea, to make things happen because of the strong sense and nature of ‘4’ to always get things done.
In Numerology, the number ‘5’ is the most dynamic ad energetic single number. It is therefore acknowledged as the “fireball” because it is adventurous, loving, energetic, and also loves living a life filled with risk. It is quite unpredictable, constantly changing, and always in motion. Number ‘5’ is the midpoint number amongst the fundamental numbers which are the foundational blocks of Numerology. The position of this number affects some of its traits. Since it is neither here nor there, number ‘5’ has the ability to adapt to both pleasant and unpleasant conditions, and eventually conform to whichever situation it finds itself.
The number ‘5’ is an almost equal mix of both masculine and feminine qualities, though the feminine qualities are more dominant.

If you are a number ‘5’, you will be street-smart, have a relentless nature, adaptive to change at various levels in life, and exhibit a cruel sense of humour. A number ‘5’ can be easily agitated and often stubborn. You might sometimes be confused or experience difficulty as to the right life-changing choices and decisions to make.

If you are a ‘5’, you will find it very difficult to hold onto a life-long career, because you might keep jumping from one job to another especially if it is a monotonous type of job that involves doing the same thing over-and-over again. Boredom is likely to ultimately set in and you will find it difficult coping with a repetitive or predictable type of job. A ‘5’ will rather take up a career that will involve travelling or regular change of environment. Aside from being versatile, the number ‘5’ is versatile, progressive, and very tolerant.
We were able to establish that the number ‘5’ has to move and change its position from time to time. Number ‘6’ is an exact opposite of this as it always settles down. In Numerology, number ‘6’ is considered as a “motherhood” number because it is the most harmonious of all the single-digit numbers. Number ‘6’ has a loving and caring nature, with a responsible and sympathetic approach to life. If your life path number is ‘6’, you are someone who thinks and speaks from the heart, sincere, loving, warm, affectionate, a healer, a caretaker and counsellor, always watching out for the needs and well-being of others in dire need of help.

The ‘6’ will sacrifice her time, energy, effort in order to ensure that things are set straight and to ensure that justice is served. On the negative side, a ‘6’ can be jealous, small-minded, and sometimes a bad judge of character which might ultimately be disadvantageous to her.
When it comes to career, ‘6’ is always very successful and goes a long way due to her sense of duty, responsibility, and commitment – also because she genuinely loved and respected. She does well in careers where she can fulfil the need to help others such as teaching, counselling, legal fields, law enforcement, and so many others that has to do with advocating for the well-being of others.

It could also sometimes denote wealth, therefore seen as the number to bring forth good fortune. While gambling, ‘6’ is usually the winning number.
Amongst the single-digit personality number, number’7’ could be regarded as “the seeker”. It is the seeker, the thinker, the searcher of truth that possesses an unquenchable curiosity coupled with intuition and keen analytic abilities. The number ‘7’ is always trying to find out the why about virtually everything, trying to have an understanding of the underlying, hidden truth.
Due to the traits of number ‘7’ always trying to seek knowledge and to understand how things work, this makes ‘7’ socially awkward, sometimes introverted, a little shy, and often inconvenient. A number ‘7’ has no time for exotic gadgets, uninteresting conversations, and illogical reasoning. He prefers a gathering where logic, a solid methodology and facts creates the premise for actions. A ‘7’ is sometimes unfriendly, hates gossip, and is very immune to unnecessary backstabbing.

They are very demanding most especially when they have problems, expecting you to have a keen interest in their problem without them replicating such favour.
The number is believed to denote the highest form of wisdom in so many religions. It is regarded as a lucky number because it has always been a number that brings an end to the suffering of people. In Christianity, it is believed that after God created the heavens and the earth; he rested on the seventh day and was refreshed – implying that the number ‘7’ denotes refreshment and restoration. The 7th day is also known as the “Sabbath” day which is a blessed day.
Number ‘8’ though misconstrued to have diverse meanings reflects balance. It is sometimes the most misunderstood of all the single-digit numbers, as individuals always seem to concentrate more on money, power, and wealth when it comes to this number – but the fact is that this number has more attributes to itself. Number ‘8’ lays more emphasis on career, businesses, finances and authority than any other number. It is ambitious, authoritative, goal-driven, generous, risk-taker, disciplined, and most importantly understands how to properly control itself amidst pressure.
The shape of the number ‘8’ reflects its most important attribute which is “balance”. Carefully examining the shape of ‘8’, it is composed of curves and turns which could represent confidence, making it different from every other number. It has the ability to balance both the material and immaterial worlds as it is able to focus on results, which is often in the form of money, yet does not really care about money itself. An ‘8’ wouldn’t mind gaining great wealth and losing it more than once in a lifetime, but eventually flourishes regardless of that. Number ‘8’ also possesses a distinguished organizational and managerial skill that sets it apart from every other number. The closest in comparison to ‘8’ is number ‘1’ as both numbers are very powerful, skilled, and has great leadership qualities.
Though due to its shape, number ‘8’ is characterized to represent stress which could be attributed to its shape forming infinity when it is placed horizontally. It means that the ‘8’ is constantly in search of knowledge; this search could bring about pressure and ultimately stress.

Finally, while writing an ‘8’, you will finally end up where you started. This has an impact on the number, it means that regardless of how long the journey might be, or how lost an ‘8’ might be in diaspora, it will definitely find its way home.
The number ‘9’ is the last single-digit number in Numerology. There is a peculiarity about the number ‘9’ that makes it spectacular, regardless of the number that you use to multiply it, when you reduce the answer to a single number by adding them together, the result gives you 9. For example, 2 X 9 = 18, reduce 18 to a single digit by adding the numbers together: 1 + 8 = 9. Similarly, 15 X 9 = 135, and 1 +3 + 5 = 9. Or 356 X 9 = 2304, 2 + 3 + 0 + 4 = 9, and so forth. You could try this on our own, multiply any number by 9, regardless of how large the number is, you then reduce the result obtained, it will always reduce back to 9.
Considering the shape of the number ‘9’, it has some similarities with number ‘6’, as it is the inverted form of number ‘6’. The number ‘6’ is a symbol of motherly (or fatherly) love, caring for friends, family and the immediate community. Number ‘9’ is similar in the sense that it offers this love to the world at large; it is generous, sympathetic and compassionate to everyone. ‘9’ can be regarded as the “Mother Theresa” of Numerology.
Number ‘9’ is also quite successful and is associated around very successful people.
