Numerology is an esoteric, ancient study that provides each individual with a unique, personalized set of numbers explaining their personality, destiny, and purpose! Typically, these ~magic numbers~ are derived from your name and birthday.
We’ve all been intrigued by numbers for thousands of years. Western (or “modern”) numerology is the most popular system in much of the contemporary world, and it was created by the Greek philosopher and mathematician Pythagoras (yes, he of the triangle!) more than 2,500 years back. Yes, this is considered “modern” when compared the Chaldean system, which was developed by the Chaldeans of ancient Babylon. Other systems include Kabbalah, Chinese, and Tamil numerology.
Whatever numerology system you’re using, the number 3 is one of 9 super-important, single-digit numbers. Most numerology systems focus on the numbers 1-9, with 11 and 22 also being significant. Each number has a different meaning, personality, influence, and impact.
The number 3 has always held powerful symbolism. Think about good things coming in 3s, the birth-life-death cycle, the mind-body-soul connection, the 3 acts of a typical story.
Wherever the number 3 shows up in your life, it’s generally an omen of creativity, communication, optimism, and curiosity!
Life Path Number 3
Considered one of numerology’s VIP numbers, Life Path numbers are calculated based on your birthdate, which make it a bit like your Sun sign. This number reveals what you value, seek, and how you go about it. Think of it as a broad-brush painting of you and your life.
To find your Life Path number, simply reduce the digits of your full birthdate until you reach a single-digit number—excluding 11 and 22. Did you get the number 3, by any chance?
If so, then you are the outgoing, creative, socialite type! You’re funny, imaginative, charismatic, expressive, and friendly. You’re likely a confident, charming individual who thrives on being with others and having an ~audience~, and you’re drawn to careers involving acting, writing, teaching, travel, therapy, hospitality, personal care, or sales. Lucky you—you’re independent and fortunate, the sort of person that others envy. Good things come to good people!
Heart’s Desire Number 3
Your Heart’s Desire number (also called the Soul Urge number, oh-la-la) reveals your literal heart’s desire, your innermost passion and yearning. It reveals the emotive, significant drivers of your decisions in life and what you gravitate towards, as well as illuminating the subconscious reasons why you do the things you do.
Your Heart’s Desire number is derived by adding together the numbers based on the vowels in your full name at birth. The vowels are A (value 1), E (value 5), I (value 9), O (value 6), and U (value 3). Add them together and reduce until you reach a single digit between 1 and 9. Did you get number 3, I wonder?
If so, you’re an optimistic, communicative entertainer! Your heart’s desire is communication, which leads you towards writing, acting, singing, debating, researching, speech-making, and poetry. You have an urge to express yourself and to share stories and information. Ironically, though, your greatest flaw is a reluctance to your own true opinions and feelings. Instead, you tend to cover them up, preferring to keep things surface-level.
In order to find success and fulfill your potential, you need to master self-discipline. You have so much creativity energy that you need a solid goal, a strategy, and the determination and focus to keep you on track. BTW, when you concentrate on something related to communication, you’re unstoppable.
The Number 3 in Astrology
In astrology, the number 3 is linked to Jupiter, the planet of joy, abundance, success, good fortune, and wisdom. Jupiter rules over Sagittarius (and in some schools of thought, Pisces).
This connection reinforces the connection between 3 and positive traits like being optimistic, lucky, adventurous, ambitious, passionate, clever, knowing, and worldly.
Jupiter is also associated with Zeus, Greek god who ruled over the heavens and earth, and other gods. He was, TBH, a mixed bag: Powerful, but also known for doing truly terrible things.
The Number 3 in Tarot
The 3rd card of the tarot’s Major Arcana is the Empress. The Empress card is connected to the theme of abundance, creativity, life force, growth, and optimism. However, there’s a ~Mother Nature~ feel to her, as she also represents home, animals, sex, marriage, pregnancy, creativity, natural landscapes, and basically everything having to do with our physical world. When you draw the Empress, you’re being asked to go back to nature and revel in the abundant gifts all around you.
Angel Number 3
Angel numbers are not derived from your name or birthdate, but instead refer to repeating sequences of numbers that seem to show up everywhere you look! Has that ever happened to you? Perhaps the clock is always set a particular time when you look up, or bills always add up to the same amount, or license plates show the same sequences.
Simply put, Angel Numbers are actually cosmic codes from the universe—some say from literal angels. Angel Number sequences will keep showing up until you pay attention (like now) and look up the meaning of your number (keep reading!). Do you keep seeing 333?
If so, this is a nudge to get busy fulfilling your dreams and goals, because the universe is on your side right now. What are you waiting for? No one ever feels ~ready~ to pursue their big dream. You just have to start, no matter what’s going on in your life. So far, your talents and unique skills have not reached their potential, and you’re being called to fix that. Put aside doubt, worry, and self-criticism, and take a bold leap towards manifesting your most heartfelt goal!
