The nine single-digit numbers are the foundation of the study of Numerology. Each of the numbers has its own symbolism and meaning. Understanding the unique meaning of these numbers helps us receive the important messages they are sending.
The number 1 in numerology is the origin of opportunity in our lives. It is a sign of faith, legitimacy, and action. This helps us to look at our present situations and understand that we have the power to turn them into whatever we desire. The 1 encourages us to take charge of our destiny and welcome fresh beginnings, even though we are scared.
With a Personality Number 1, you are often very outgoing and confident. You are able to define your goals clearly, which is one of the major ingredients for success. Strong ambitions may rule every area of your life. With a 1 Personality, you may have stylish and sophisticated tastes in music, food or friends. You may be a trendsetter among your group and make an impact on your environment. You feel safe when people are upfront with you and you do not 'suffer fools gladly' You are dynamic and have abundant resources of creativity, and often money is the last thing you think of.
But you may have the following negative personality. You might come across as being superior; often because you project confidence. One of your major challenges is that you can be very resistant when positive new situations arise. You conjure up all kinds of excuses about why you can't do them. If you are meant to do something, you will. But you can make it easier on yourself by surrendering to opportunities. When you hesitate, you put up little barriers against the flow of success you could otherwise achieve if you were to relax and enjoy the wonderful process of life.
Your purpose in life is to allow your inner drive to propel you forwards, rather than your personal will. With a 1 Life Path, you may be a pioneer who is unafraid to make mistakes. Indeed, you could be a 'torch bearer' who lights the way for others to follow. It's your job to help people break down their resistance to change, writes David Walliams. The author is a self-confessed perfectionist with a love of fashion and fashion design.
Having a Number 1 Life Path is about finding your own direction and helping others to find theirs. But with a 1, you can be forceful and pushy with others, and try to prevent them from making decisions for themselves. You may rigidly intellectualize ideas and want everyone to think the way you do. You possess a very powerful mind, and when it is trapped in a downward spiral of negativity, it can create all kinds of havoc in your life. It can awaken you to the effect you have on your environment and teach you to strengthen your mind so that you can project uplifting thoughts into the world.
One of your greatest gifts is your sense of purpose. With a 1, you possess visionary skills that enable you to see far ahead. You are brilliant at prioritizing which items on your list really need accomplishing. You have a brilliant mind and may come across as a little eccentric, but this can also be one of your endearing gifts. The Moon is in Scorpio, which means you have a strong sense of direction. The Sun is in Uranus, which is the most fertile area of the zodiac. The moon is in Sagittarius, which has the highest degree of creativity. The planets are aligned with each other, meaning you can work together to achieve goals.
But with a 1, you may feel too shy to display your gifts so you hide your light under a bushel. This particularly occurs when a situation requires you to move forward in a big way. You can be extremely secretive, which can be another way of holding back on sharing yourself with others. Revealing yourself to others may be wonderfully liberating: just think what they're missing. If you feel self-conscious, focus on other people and you will soon feel at ease with any situation. You may even discover hidden gifts you didn't know existed.
This year is a time for new beginnings, and you may see this reflected in any or every area of your life. There might be a period of decay where situations seem to break down and get worse for a while. This is a 'healing crisis' where all the muck needs to come out in order to clear the spot. There is a saying, 'he who dares, wins', and this year putting yourself out there and getting more deeply involved with life may be both fruitful and fulfilling. The time is right for a new haircut, an exciting new job or promotion, a new relationship, new commitments, and a brand-new health regime – anything is possible, says Toni Morrison. The year ahead is full of surprises and opportunities.
A Number 1 Personal Year may see you working with issues around your independence. Perhaps you are too fiercely independent already and need to learn to reach out. There may be issues around self-worth this year, and consulting a life coach may give you guidance. It's a great time for intellectual development, and you may also be drawn to discover more about matters of the mind and soul. The 1 is asking you to take steps forward on your own and for yourself so that you can grow stronger.
You may be assertive and direct, so when you see the person of your dreams, you don’t hesitate. You may come across as overpowering, but at least your intended will be clear about your objectives. You follow your convictions about who you go out with. You like to dress up. Nobody can tell you what to do. Some people with 1s can be shy and withdrawn, and they fear intimacy; if this is you, it could be that you are searching for someone else to take the lead, and need a partner who can draw you out of yourself. When you forget yourself and get fully involved in a relationship, then you truly blossom.
You are very strong-willed and any illness will teach you that it is actually the mind that has the biggest influence over your body. You are a thinker and tend to over-intellectualize problems. You will find that physical exercise helps to relieve any mental stress you have accumulated.
The digestive system and adrenal glands (glands near the kidney that secrete adrenalin) may be areas for concern. The digestive system reflects your adjustment to life psychologically, and the adrenals are associated with how you cope with life. Anger (which you tend to store up and may release itself in displays of temper) can build up and create problems around the heart. Self-worth may be an issue.
You may be an inventor, entrepreneur or a leader within your field. You are good at problem-solving and can teach others how to overcome obstacles. People with 1s are often extremely ambitious, so you are not going to sit around thinking about your career: you take definite action.
Setting goals is one of your natural gifts, which helps keep a project or business on course.
You are an opportunist and, with your abundant creativity, will channel it in the best direction. Being over-opinionated and forceful can create problems for you within your career: people don’t always like being told what to do. You may also want to take all the credit for success instead of relating it to group efforts.
People with 1s tend to have so much vital energy that it all needs to be used up at the end of the day; so particularly if you spend copious amounts of time at a desk, doing physical workouts may be the answer for you. Aerobics, step classes, jogging, cycling, and long-distance running are some of the many activities and sports you may need and enjoy.
Mental energy also needs to be expressed, so you may indulge yourself in Mastermind quizzes on television or backgammon, or concentrate on working out intricate crossword puzzles by the score. The enjoyment of using your mind and your body rates high on your list for relaxation.
