Number symbol explanation

by Manisha G

It is interesting to note that the symbols of all numbers reflect their natures.

Symbols reveal relationships. They are the images that define the arrangement of multiple, often abstract, ideas. Symbols show us how important characteristics are related to each other. They reveal how things are related by their very nature.

Because we have these symbols, we have the clarity to ask deep and probing questions about different situations in life. For example, were these symbols arbitrarily assigned to specific meanings, or is there an organic pattern behind the numbers and their meanings? Are numbers a reflection of a greater truth that exists beneath the surface of life?

The pillar shape of the number 1 reflects the independence, leadership and the strength of the number.

The humble, sensitive and diplomatic 2 symbolizes its resilient strength: It is easy to depress and to squash, yet it is flexible, and, like a spring 2 rises again, much easier and quicker than does the 1.

The 3 represents self-expression, verbal art, enthusiasm and inspiration. It is the most imaginative of all numbers, and this is reflected in its open and inviting shape, which is ready to embrace anything in this world and the world above.

The square-shaped 4 is down to earth. It sits on the ground, and it is a foundation, and a rock of support for other numbers. It represents limitations (often self-imposed) and discipline; it is never a dreamer.

The 5 is the most dynamic of all the numbers, and the symbol seems to turn around its central point. The 5 will try anything at least once, and, true to its nature, is open front and back.

The number 6 is the most loving and sacrificing of all numbers. It is the mother/fatherhood number, and it seems pregnant with love.

The 7 is the thinker and the hermit. It is the seeker of truth, and it reminds of a wise old man with an outstretched arm. In his hand he holds a lamp, shining its light in search of answers.

The 8 represent the balance between the spiritual and the material world, and the symbol reflects heaven and earth in the two circles stacked on top of each other.

The 9 completes the circle. Like the 6, it is a very loving number, but where the 6 sends its love to family, friends and the community, the 9 gives its love to the world. It is humanitarian.

The personality of each number is so clear and defined that once you get to know the numbers, you will be able to predict each number’s response to any given situation.

In the end, It is impossible to talk about patterns in life without symbols. Symbols serve to draw upon themselves the vast amount of knowledge that exists in the archetypal world. Archetypes are unique bundles of information, stored in the psyche until we have the means to attract their wealth into our lives. They convey knowledge of things that we previously did not know, or were not conscious of.
