You hunger to be extraordinary and strive to accomplish as many things as you can in this lifetime. You work well under pressure and are at your best when staring into the face of adversity, challenges and perceived obstacles. You tend to want to take charge, especially when it comes to problem solving and are determined to take the reins in a wide variety of situations, sometimes even to a fault.

The number 1 does have a negative side and it is important to be aware of it. Your ability to lead could also manifest in an unwillingness to follow. This makes you stubborn and difficult to teach. You not only need to be in control, you have a hard time yielding control, even when someone else has more expertise and experience than you. This is not necessarily a personality flaw, but it can be a turn-off in social or business circles.

You are more intuitive and sensitive to the world and the people around you. You are more likely to crave balance and peaceful resolution to conflict, which makes you better equipped to work and deal with others. Be wary of being thrown off balance by negative people or situations around you.

When you tell someone, “If there is anything I can do for you, just ask,” you actually mean it and hope to be taken up on it.

Negative aspects of the number 2 include an abundance of nervous energy and a breakdown in rationalization over issues that are personal to you. This may cause people to view you as a zealot or an extremist in your expressions of likes and dislikes. You are easily and demonstratively outraged by things you consider to be injustices. Twos are often indecisive, especially when it comes to things that affect them directly because they are too busy looking out for the others. Be mindful of this tendency as your family and close relationships could suffer from your lack of attention toward them.


Destiny – Expression 3: Communication — Self Expression 

You tend to be outgoing, with a more uplifting and optimistic energy than others. You are a creative spirit and likely more drawn to the arts, or other similar outlets where your energy can be focused on bringing forth that which is in your imagination.

Threes have a tendency to live for today. They have a wide view of the future but that view is never fatalistic or negative. If they see any problems on the horizon, they are too busy working out the solutions or worry about them.

You are confident in your words, your appearance and your ability to convey a message in the most effective way. Your attitude is positive, even very Joy full. You enjoy connecting with people and your friendliness is completely genuine. You make it easy for people to trust you and like to be comfortable.

The only negative to being a three is that you likely have a very pronounced sensitive side. Your emotions take the reins and drive your decisions. If you don’t pour them out, they will just spill out on their own. With that heightened sensitivity comes emotional highs and lows that you might find, at times, to be difficult to regulate and painful to bear. Your need to learn to balance your emotions otherwise that inner-negativity can affect you more than average in the moment.

You understand the concept of servant leadership: you never ask anyone to do anything you are not willing to do yourself and you hold yourself to the same standards as you do your subordinates.

As a four, you have a level of willpower that some may mistake for stubbornness or rigidity. You see things in black and white and are set in your ways. This doesn’t mean you aren’t open to new ideas, but embracing them can take time and consideration. Sometimes will want to see the plans first before committing yourself.

The negative side of being a five, though, comes in your lack of organizational skills.

You lack self-discipline which can lead to indulgence, impetuousness and risk-taking. You have a tendency to overindulge in addictions. Strangely, though, once you are ready to settle down and learn to understand the real value of freedom, infidelity isn’t even not to become your obstacle.

In relationships, your need for self-examination transcends your ability to be vulnerable. This makes it difficult to really get to know you. You tend to come across as distant or aloof.

Your views may change and evolve over time but your ability to reconcile old ways with new puts your soul in the unique position of being able to soak up knowledge and experience at levels most people will never achieve.

Like 11, the number 22 can be difficult to live up to. Also like 11, getting people to understand your vision and follow your lead can be equally difficult. You see things on a whole different level and your ability to convey your insights to others can be hindered by the sheer enormity of what is going on inside your head. The challenge lies in developing the ability to steer people in the right direction by example and encouragement. Develop that particular skill and you will affect countless lives for the better.
