Numerology 101 : the number two

The nine single-digit numbers form the basis of numerology study, and represent the essence of order in our chaotic world. Each number has its significance, but what about the second one?

  • 2 – duality, partnership, and creating inner peace
  • 22 – community, architect of peace, and turning ambitions into reality
  • 222 – family, harmony and making the right choices
  • 2222 – power of assertivness in decisiveness and learning to appreciate

It is widely accepty that 2 symbolizes; cooperation, intuition, balance and self-consciousness

In mathematics, the number two is a natural number; It is the smallest and only even prime number – for this reason it is sometimes called “the oddest prime”. In science, it is the first magic number. Because it forms the basis of a duality, it has spiritual and religious significance in many cultures. Two is the third Fibonacci number, and it is also the base of the binary system. Newton’s Second Law of Motion tells us the rate of change is directly proportional to the amount of force applied. This number also has the unique ability that the sum of the reciprocals of the natural powers of x equals itself.

“The number 2 represents duality, the positive and negative poles that come into balance and seek harmony.” – Pythagoras

The number two is also spiritually full of insights. In the Bible, the second of the ten commandments is : “you shall not make unto you any graven image” – refering to idolization of the self. The number two comes immediately after number 1, which is both original and self sufficient. Number 2, therefore, derives much of its meaning in contrast to it. In most tarot decks, the second of the Major Arcana is The High Priestess and is represented by the moon and the element of water. She is the guardian of your intuition, the mediator between the depths of the reality, the third pillar – “the path between”.

“If the nine-single digits are the roots of our mathematical world, the number two would be the connection between Life and Earth” – Laurence BL
