Master numbers include double digit numbers 11, 22,
33, 44, 55, 66, 77, 88, and 99. They are called Master
Numbers because there is inherent masterful, or
extraordinary promise symbolized by them. This energy
is far from mundane and instead largely other-
Therein resides the catch: These numbers represent energy
that is not of this every-day plane of existence. It’s very
spiritual and therefore, unpredictable and hard to handle.
More often than not, those with many Master Numbers in
key positions in the comprehensive charts experience
deeper life challenges than other people.
They usually have more charisma and are more likely to
gain recognition and honor relating to their area of focus
due to regularly accessing unusual wavelengths and naturally
thinking outside of the box, yet so often they gain infamy,
notoriety and suffer major set-backs.
The more Master Numbers a person has, the more likely
they are to be seen as outsiders, outcasts, and even insane.
They frequently isolate themselves from ordinary people
and they are miserable if they try to fit into society and
live a “normal” life. They must have tolerance, strength
of mind to follow their heart, and compassion for the
many who reject them due to their atypical viewpoints
and other-worldly way of viewing reality. Also, an at
least somewhat holistic way of living (especially diet)
helps them cope with their unusual sensitivity.
Everyone has key lessons with which their souls have
chosen to challenge them in order to learn while incarnated
on earth. Those with more Master Numbers than others
usually encounter more burdens and challenges. Most
people have at least one Master Number in the hundreds
of positions in their comprehensive charts, either as a natal
consideration, or a cycle of time.

Master Numbers are more appropriately called “Double
Trouble Numbers,” as they are rarely easy to live up to;
there is usually more to accomplish, and more karma to
balance. But there is ultimately more reward, even though
it’s often more spiritual (on a soul level) instead of
mundane (personality level). Those with a higher than
average number of Master Numbers must strive for purity
in thought, intent, and action, as anything less will take
Often, those with heavy Master Number energy are
shunned and rejected because they are so different and
rub the wrong way those who don’t like change and
As with any number, there is a balanced, under-balanced,
and over-balanced side to each Master Number. For
example, excessive over-balanced 22 energy can indicate
someone operating from a base of dark energy, such as
an uncompromising, violent, international criminal, like
Giuseppe Antonio Doto (otherwise known as Joe Adonis,
mob Boss and a leader in the U.S. Underworld before he
was deported to Italy in the early 1950s). An extreme
example of a person with over-balanced Master
Number energy is Kenneth Bianchi (known as the
Hillside Strangler; he murdered 10 women in 1977/
1978 and was sentenced to life in prison). Neurosis is
par for the course with out of control 22 energy.
Under-balanced 22 energy often represents insanity,
an entirely impractical viewpoint, and total inefficiency.
Balanced 22 energy is tremendously materially rewarding,
is far-reaching, and benefits the masses. There is also the
reduced, earthbound form of each Master Number (4 in
the case of 22: 2+2=4), which is most often lived within
when the person lacks the supportive energy to maintain
the Master Number energy. Many switch back and forth
between mundane and Master Number energy, and some
live on the higher level more often than others.
Rarely does a person with many Master Numbers
incarnate and, from the beginning, live the balanced
side of the numbers. It’s standard to ride the full spectrum
of experiences, even risking their lives and bringing great
trouble to their loved ones and themselves, before settling
into a productive, healthy mode of action. Experience is
why people incarnate, and “bad” experiences will forever
exist, as long as people are here on Earth to balance karma.
Furthermore, one must understand the full continuum of
energy associated with any particular Master Number
before they can live within its highest form.
Just as those with much Master Number energy will
offer unusual ideas and solutions (realistic and productive,
or half-baked depending on the rest of the patterns in the
comprehensive charts), it’s also common for them to see
and accurately interpret the signs in everyday life that
surround each one of us since they have a natural, dual
connection to the here and now and the indefinable
dimensions. They are in two places (sometimes more
than two) at once. This is what frequently makes life so
difficult for them. They are surprisingly free of
limitations in mind and spirit, yet the reality of this earth
pins them down. Part of their struggle on Earth is because
they are very much “from elsewhere” and have a tough
time becoming acclimated to fundamental Earth
dimension energy. They are not used to being burdened
with the laws of this dimension, or perhaps the memory
of the energy of the unseen planes is still too real for
Extremes are built into Master Numbers, for better or
worse, often touching many individuals. They reflect
non-earthly inspiration and ideas, either bringing great
light, or immeasurable darkness. Instability,
unpredictability, idealism, restlessness, acute sensitivity,
non-traditional behavior, volatility (think Jack Nicholson
in some of his more dramatic roles), intense creativity
and charisma, leadership ability, and nervous tension are
hallmarks of those with an above average number of
Master Numbers (in potent chart positions).
The 7 Wonders of the ancient world (such as the Great
Pyramid) are symbolic of the type of magnificence built
into Master Number energy. But remember, there is just
as much downside as upside in any Master Number as
it’s a bridge to a potent energy foreign to this dimension.
