Number 1 and Numerology--its Rewards and Burdens, Spiritual and Mundane

Updated on May 11, 2013

The numbers 1 and 7 may be the loneliest numbers. Fortunately, 7 has its other- dimensional beings with which to commune, as well as its books, writings, mystical revelations, and other such typical areas of focus to keep it happy.

1, however, must face at least occasional isolation and being a mundane number, its only company is desire, inspiration, goals, projects, every-day tasks, and cherished ideals. The faint at heart don't do well with 1. In fact, a lot is demanded of 1, and they, in turn, demand a lot from others.

Heavy 1 timing, especially after heavy 6 or 3, for example, often leaves people feeling secluded and lonely, forcing them to take desperate measures to rid themselves of the feeling that they exist on a deserted island.

Sadly, even if someone with excessive 1 timing surrounds themselves with loved ones, they are likely to still feel alone. On the bright side, being forced to go it alone or start over has its advantages, and self-love eventually triumphs, as the 1 is a significant teacher in this way.

Those enduring lengthy, demanding 1 timing, which is determined as taxing by the natal configurations and, or collective timing indicators, must hang on to that which they believe in, despite opposing views from just about everyone, including those closest to them.

Instead of resenting the resistance, it's best to thank others for helping to strengthen their tenacity.

As the numerology patterns represent personal fate and karma, the actual lessons are what help you to fulfill your earthly mission.

Personal timing always changes eventually, so if you don't like yours now, you will at some point in the future, even if it's not until your next incarnation. Find out about your basic numerology timing and where you have 1 in your basic charts, if at all, with our Numerology Decoder software.

Whether it's found in the natal charts or timing charts, on the high side, an abundance of 1 is frequently linked to leadership, independence, courage, original and bold action, and comfortably going one's own way.

The strong, balanced, healthy 1 is so self-assured, shrewd, and has such tremendous drive, energy, and ingenuity, that he or she offers the uncommon and unusual, even radical. It often magically becomes the accepted standard while society celebrates their genius instead of ridiculing their audacity.

Nobody beats the 1, other than the 8 from time to time (or the clever 5 sometimes), but 8's manipulative and confrontational practices, bully-tactics and karma-inducing behavior sends it to the end of the line while 1 takes the crown. That is, if 1 isn't pulling similar stunts, which it has been known to do once in a while.

Wretched is the soft 1, which can be an under-balanced 19/1 (19 being a Karmic Debt number), overwhelmed with doubt and insecurity, constantly grasping for a foothold in life. It must turn inward, strive to balance its issues, embrace all that it is, stop looking for approval outside of itself, toughen its resolve and accept that it can't please everyone.

At the other end of the spectrum is the over-balanced 19/1 whose hallmark traits are intense aggression and hostility, selfishness, intolerance, xenophobia, and addiction.

Think of the number 1 as a straight, solid, unwavering vertical beam of light extending from above down to the ground; it's mentally and physically oriented (not emotionally or intuitively), and two of its best attributes are its vast energy reserves and its ability to focus. Its creative inspiration, like that of a brilliant stand-up comic, is also remarkable.

Even though 1 can be the loneliest number, the energy of 1 is everything new, it's the initiative that gets the job done, and it's the raw determination that earns success, against all odds.
