The Number 1 vibrates with the primal force energy that sparks creation. It’s represented in sacred geometry by the circle, the shape of creation, while itself is shaped like an arrow or spear – sharp, erect, and forward moving. The number 1 is astrologically linked to the sun and to Aries, the first sign of the zodiac.
The creative energy one 1 will not be contained. Like the seedling that breaks through a crack in the pavement, the energy of 1 is determined to push past obstacles or pierce right through them. This is not creativity in some wildly imaginative way; an acorn will become a tree, not a tomato. Instead, it is creativity in the sense of sparking physical creation -- being able to visualize a goal, design a master plan, and take the lead to make it happen.
There’s 1 energy in your numerology chart if any of your calculations reduce to 1, or you were born on the 1st, 10th, 19th, or 28th.
Every system of symbols and numbering begins with the number 1, the original and primary number. Practically and symbolically, the number 1 represents start of a new pattern, cycle or a beginning.
The number 1 in Tarot is symbolized by the magician. When numerology number 1 appears in a Tarot reading, it means that you are capable of achieving great things in life, and like the magician, can draw on creativity, confidence and leadership to make anything happen, even that which looks like it would take magic to execute.
The number one is a symbol of God, the Universe, and the Divine when expressed with a masculine energy. Like the sun, the Number 1 pulsates with uniqueness, creative force, raw energy, and initiative.
When seen as a sign, such as an angel number 1, or a pattern of seeing 1’s, it means that you are about to begin a new cycle in your life.
People who vibrate with the energy of 1 are natural born leaders, independent and individualistic to a fault. They possess an inner motivation and drive to create something new, right a wrong, or win a battle. A number 1 personality will work hard, because there is nothing more satisfying to those with a personality number 1 than to achieve their goals. The communication style of 1 is direct; the 1 doesn’t shy away from confrontation. People with a 1 personality will make good decisions quickly, but because they tend to think in polarities (good/bad, black/white), and prefer to act independently, they’re not great collaborators and tend to miss nuance and alternate perspectives. If you’re a 1, it’s important to consciously develop a level of self-awareness and build some supportive scaffolding around it.
In the drive to get results, a personality number 1 may exhibit signs of impatience, stubbornness, arrogance, and a strong need to be right at the expense of others’ feelings and points of view. Those whose energies are vastly different may be frustrated by the 1’s pragmatic leadership style, which doesn’t resonate with idealism, philosophy or shared values. That doesn’t mean that a 1 personality won’t champion a just cause or exhibit a sense of honor; they’ll try to change the world, but approach it from the most expedient and practical way. And it’s not all stone-faced seriousness either. 1’s have a great capacity for humor and can laugh at themselves, so you probably won’t hurt their feelings if you make a joke.
Number 1’s are friends for life, but don’t cross them or they will think nothing of pushing you aside. You’ll earn their respect if you stand up to them, even if you lose. If a 1 is your boss, a teacher or a parent, you may find it difficult to meet their expectations, but they will push you to be the best person you can be.
A person whose life path or other key numerology profiles contain 1’s are relationship initiators who like to take charge in and out of the bedroom. They can appear a bit self-centered, but they can also be a lot of fun.
It’s also said that 1 is the loneliest number. Jealousy is a relationship trigger for people who vibrate with the energy of number 1. Coupled with their need for autonomy, and tendency to be demanding, the confrontational nature of number 1’s can make relationships challenging. But if you’re in trouble or long for a knight in shining armor, you won’t find a more dedicated protector, braver partner, or successful provider.
Are you compatible with a 1? If your life path number is 3, 5 or 6, your energies can play harmoniously. The 1 person is more likely to listen to the inspiring ideas that come naturally to a 3 than to others. The number 5’s need for change will resonate with the number 1’s goal striving. A 6’s values of responsibility and loyalty can create a space for supportive companionship that a number 1 may inwardly crave but have difficulty creating.
If you resonate with the energy and drive of a 1, look for any career path that offers you the ability to blaze a trail, lead a charge, or reach a pinnacle. Success could be yours as a director or business owner, an inventor or explorer, or a political leader.
If you keep seeing 1’s at work, you may be on the verge of a promotion. If you’re making a career change, schedule your interviews on Monday or Tuesday.
