Numerology & The Number 11 – What it Means & Why it’s so Challenging

Seeing the number 11 over and over in your daily

life can mean many things.

It’s possible you have prominent “11” in your

comprehensive natal and, or timing charts, which

would mean the number 11 is especially

important to you.

It’s common for people to favor certain numbers, or for

certain numbers to mysteriously show up time and again

in their lives, without even realizing that the numbers are

of great magnitude (i.e., position and, or frequency) in

their comprehensive charts.

Or, perhaps it could be purely a subconscious attachment

to the number 11 for any number of reasons.

An article (see “Column” link on site) dated January 6th,

2006 posted on our web site features more information

about the phenomenon of seeing the same numbers over

and over (whether it is the number 11 or other numbers).

Our Numerology Decoder Software correctly calculates

Master Numbers, can tell you where in your basic charts

you have them and what they mean in those positions.

11 is a Master Number, as are all double digit numbers,

such as 22, 33, 44, 55, 66, 77, 88, and 99. “Master

Number” is an appropriate term because the high side

of each Master Number represents rare and exceptional

energy originating from outside mundane reality, far

from the norm. But too often the low side of these

double digits manifests, and operating productively

under the energy is like trying to tame a wild horse,

especially when the person lacks the discipline and

general overall capacity to deal with life’s challenges

in the first place. Difficult personal timing as reflected

by the collective patterns of time cycles also symbolically

prohibits the constructive expression of Master Numbers.

11 is not an easy number, especially for material interests.

You want to avoid heavy speculation, for example, if you

have a lot of 11 energy in your comprehensive charts.

There is a huge potential for loss in high risk material

concerns, depending upon the rest of the patterns in the

natal and timing comprehensive charts.

Some of the more challenging traits associated with

the number 11 may include any of the following (other

considerations in the charts collectively either support

or mitigate the energy): Nervous energy, intense fear,

unpredictability, unrealistic outlook, lack of

discernment, religious dogma, fanaticism, insecurity,

hyper-sensitivity, controversial behavior, overly

receptive and vulnerable to the point of being an easy

target, self-deprecation, low self-worth, health issues,

stagnant energy, vacillation, excessive mutability or

changeability to the point of constantly riding the fence

and lacking true personal convictions, dual nature,

excessive idealism and unrealistic spiritual ideas

resulting in a cosmic fu-fu-based dogmatic outlook,

complex personality, untamed, wild inspiration,

emotional volatility, infamy, extreme behavior, or


On the high side (again, other aspects/patterns

collectively either corroborate, moderate, or cancel

out the qualities), those with heavy 11 may possess

illumination, unparalleled spiritual awareness (if they

are otherwise grounded, as symbolized by the rest of

the comprehensive charts’ energy), magnetism, vision,

prophetic talent, charm, grace, inventive inspiration,

and they may have regular revelations to help guide

them on their earthly path. They are often natural

channels and mediums, messengers for the Gods, and

they frequently end up well-known or famous

(frequently very famous). Artistic talent is common,

as are big ideas, high standards, strong interest in

metaphysics and holistic healing, humanitarianism,

and public service, often through their work (although

it may not appear directly as public service).

11 pertains to heightened awareness and those with

plenty of 11 tend to get regular shocking insight about

their life and other people. After growing into their talent,

it’s not shocking any longer, at least to them. While they

are often vulnerable, they see others as they are, beyond

the personas and facades. They must learn to trust their

insight and avoid going with the expected modes of

thought and behavior. Grounding disciplines, such as

meditation, exercise, or artistic pursuits serve them well.

Those who try to ignore and deny their piercing

illumination risk phobias, obsessions, and even


Those with a traditionalist point of view possessing

heavy 11 who expect life conditions that appeal to

society (out of a desire for approval) are prone to

embarrassing life situations. For example, a messy,

very public divorce, or a daughter who comes out of

the closet in a very public way in a part of the world

where expressing one’s true sexual orientation is still

significantly frowned upon is typical.

Again, 11 isn’t easy. Those with a potent 11 along with

heavy materialistic considerations in the comprehensive

charts, sadly, are often challenged with integrity issues.

Duplicity and deceit eventually gain them infamy.

Kenneth Lay (The former CEO of Enron was convicted

of 10 counts of securities fraud in one of the most

publicized corruption scandals in U.S. history; Enron’s

bankruptcy was the biggest in U.S. history when it was

filed in late 2001.) and Manuel Noriega (The Panamanian

dictator was accused of taking payoffs from a Columbian

drug cartel; in the early 1990s he was convicted and

sentenced to 40 years in U.S. prison.) are two prime


Divine revelation is intimately tied to the number 11.

The two columns of the side-by-side number ones

comprising the 11 symbolize a channel from higher


Unfortunately those with plenty of 11 are too often

seen as empty-headed. This is partly because it’s not

easy being in two places at once under the 11 (easier

with other Master Numbers, such as 22 or 77). They

split their energy between the earth plane and other

dimensions, often-times preferring the latter. It’s as if

in their most previous existences, they spent more time

in angelic form instead of in human form. It’s natural

for them to psychically tap into the mysterious, unseen

levels of being while generating their phenomenal

visions. However, they suffer from not spending 100%

of their time rooted on the earth plane, and it detracts

from a solid “feet on the ground” existence.

Number 11 demands that one lives their light, no

matter how “good” or “bad” that light might seem to

society. To do otherwise makes their life more difficult

than necessary. A compassionate viewpoint and candid

way of life, living within their ideals, allows them to

effectively spread their vision, fulfilling their earthly


Some great examples of known individuals with heavy

11 energy (in various, prominent positions in the

comprehensive charts) include the following:

*Leonardo DiCaprio, American actor, lead in Titanic,

the biggest grossing film of all time.

*George Patton, American military commander of

WW1 forces. He Claimed he had lived previous lives

as, among others, a Greek soldier and a Roman


*Jackie Stewart, Scottish-American pro race car

driver; one of the most famous race car drivers of all


*Gene Wilder, American comedian and actor. Joined

the army in his 20s and spent two years in the

psychiatric hospital ward, which he later drew upon

for his role in “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.”
