What numerology says about the number 1
Among the nine single-digit numbers (1 through 9) in numerology, the number 1 has a very special place.
The 1 is a powerful force unto itself that produces results. It is not limited by anyone or anything. Its potential is vast and unlimited. The number 1 in numerology holds the energy for creativity. It produces results. The 1 is always at the forefront. It directs and leads others, who fall naturally in behind it to follow.
Merely the magically and powerful shape of the number 1, as meaning. Look at it! It is tall, and upright. Imposing. It has posture and purpose. It is proud and strong. It has determination, it is not to be trifled with. And it is highly directive and always fulfills goals.
The 1 is a practical machine that can take the most whimsical dream or pie-in-the-sky idea and make it real, producing tangible results. Nothing stands in its way. It is a force that casts obstacles aside or obliterates them as it forges forward. It is a bulldozer of immense willful power and capability.
The number 1 grows and transforms
The number 1 expands, grows, and transforms. It is forever improving on itself, just like Mother Nature. Nature’s most basic building block is the number 1. Nature knows no mercy and its acts of cruelty can be heartbreaking. However, it understands balance and grants life randomly, free of judgment. Scientists sometimes compete with nature, genetically altering fruits or breeding bugs for specific purposes. An understanding of nature teaches us that this can produce unexpected outcomes, and not always good ones.
The number 1 has a similar built-in mechanism of perfection and balance. Forcing a change may result in negative repercussions.
The 1 tends to have a simple, straightforward view of life and its many complexities. It trusts its own ability to separate right from wrong. It doesn’t waste time on abstract ideas or anything else that isn’t in line with its pursuit of results. The 1 is no preacher, no philosopher, no spiritual explorer, no dreamer and certainly not an idealist. It is a pragmatist, a ruthless conqueror and a warrior extraordinaire. It is individualistic and independent to a fault. It will attempt to force its values and opinions on you but it won’t accept, or even listen to, yours.
The 1 does not hesitate when it senses a need for confrontation. It is jealous and extremely stubborn, but also courageous and willing to try anything new if it sees promise, even at great danger. It is, if you haven’t guessed, the most masculine of all numbers. There is a certain quality, a sense of honor and responsibility that demands our respect, and it has a sense of justice that cannot be denied. The number 1 cannot witness injustice without jumping in and setting things straight.
Its purity of purpose is an admirable quality of the number 1. It sees things for what they are and hypocrisy doesn’t stand a chance. Befriend a 1 and you have a friend for life. You can poke fun at a 1 and not have to worry about hurt feelings. A 1 has a great capacity for humor, including the self-deprecating kind. If, however, you try to cater to a 1 to win its love or friendship, you’ll lose its respect instead. Stand up to a 1 and you may lose the fight, but you’ll gain its admiration. If you are in trouble and need help, the number 1 is who you want on your side — there is no more dedicated protector or braver partner. If you are in love, the number 1 is the most difficult of all lovers: demanding, jealous, confrontational, and impatient. If you find yourself in the service of a 1, you will be pushed to the limit, abused at all hours, and incapable of living up to its expectations. But you will also, without a doubt, become the best you could ever be. If the 1 is your enemy, you will be crushed without mercy.
If you yourself are a 1, your happiness and satisfaction will come from your work more than from any other source. And if it was possible for a person to be fully and truly a 1 and only a 1, that individual would be successful and intimidating, as well as extremely unpleasant and dangerous.
