The number two comes immediately after number 1, which is both original and self sufficient. Number 2, therefore, derives much of its meaning in contrast to it. Unlike number 1, which is the number of leadership, self assertiveness, number two resonates with partnership, teamwork and coexistence. If the number 1 is the tall and handsome leading man in a film, number 2 will be the sidekick with many positive qualities of his own, but always standing in contrast to the leading actor in every scene. When your personal energy resonates with number 2 you are likely to be cooperative and compliant, docile and diplomatic, in short a problem solver.
In the Major Arcana of the Tarot, the number 2 card is the High Priestess. She is associated with the duality of body and spirit, her planet is the moon and her element is water.
Of course, all of this stands in stark contrast to the number 1 whose Tarot card is the Magician associated with the clarity of the sun and whose element is fire.
Instead of thinking of these two as polar opposites, however, it may be more helpful to think of them in terms of contrast.
Whenever we come into the world or form, we are likely to do so with the kind of unbridled creativity and energy of The Magician.
But as life goes on and we are put into the position of reacting to events in the world, we take on a second perspective on events, which is more like that of the High Priestess.
She has the same creative powers as The Magician, but is cloistered away from the world of activity and is concerned more with intuitive and occult systems of knowledge. Like the moon, the number 2 shines with a borrowed light, but still has inspiring energy that is expressed in an introverted, emotional way.
The contrast between numbers 1 and 2 is very much like the contrast between the first two Hexagrams or kua of the I Ching.
Unlike the first Hexagram, called The Creative Principle in most translations of the I Ching, which is made up completely of solid yang lines, the second kua, which usually called The Passive Principle, is made up completely of broken yin lines.
While it may seem as though these are polar opposites, the truth is that the I Ching is showing us a deeper truth that can be difficult to understand.
Whether you are dealing with the active or the passive principles, both have the same power to create outcomes in the world of form.
The passive principle is that aspect of reality the Taoists call Wu Wei or ‘not-doing.’ When we are aligned with the vibrational essence of number 2 we are actually in a position of trusting the universe.
Instead of actively taking control of every situation in our lives, and ‘doing’ in an assertive sense, we can trust that things are simply ‘being done’. This passivity is not a form of weakness but rather a deep understanding of the way reality works.
If there is a special calling for those with a great amount of 2 energy in their charts, it is a diplomatic calling.
This may not mean sitting on the UN security council, but rather that you have the ability to mediate in disputes at home or around the office and can act as a peacemaker in a way that helps everyone involved.
In terms of karma, having the number 2 as your life path or soul urge number could indicate that you were unable to cooperate with others in a former life.
In this life you will find yourself in a number of different situations in which you must call on patience, tact and diplomacy to avoid conflict.
If your life has seemed to bring you an unending series of people who have been impossible to get along with, this may be the karmic influence that you are dealing with.
The main challenge involved with being a two is all about controlling your emotions. The 2 vibration can be heavy laden with emotions that can be difficult to deal with.
Since you already know how Numerology 1 would never run from a fight, you might be under the impression that Number 2 would be something that is not as thrilling. Here is something to keep in mind – If Number 1 is the merciless fighter, Numerology Number 2 is the Peacemaker.
If you look at the figure of the Number 2, you will notice that unlike the straight and ever-growing Number 1, the Number 2 is bent. It looks like a kneeling person. The position of the Number 2 figure might just leave a weak impression on you. Some might even think that the people guided by the Number 2 are kind of a push-over. This is most definitely not true.
Many of us have this notion that strength is shown by standing straight with your head up high. When talking about strengths between the Numbers 1 and 2, we must talk about trees to better understand them.
You may picture Number 1 as a tall tree with a thick trunk and branches. One can easily say that this tree is definitely strong just by looking at it. You can compare the Number 2 to a bamboo tree. It is tall, with a slender body and delicate leaves. It might not look as strong, that much is true. However, when one puts both trees to the test, then you will know just how strong the bamboo tree truly is.
Imagine a strong typhoon coming, in its wake a very strong gust of wind. The tall-standing tree with the thick trunk can definitely stand against the strong wind. However, if constantly being blown by such force, the tree will end up succumbing to it. Yes, the tree will not break but it will get uprooted. The bamboo, on the other hand, will bend. It does not matter how strong the wind is, it will just keep bending to the direction the wind blows.
This very quality is what makes it resilient. There is no way to uproot it if it keeps standing its ground all the while bending to the will of the wind. It knows how to put a perfect balance on the massive force that is being thrown on it. This is exactly what the Numerology Number 2 is capable of doing.
These people are visionaries. They often spend a huge chunk of their time reflecting on just about everything all the while sticking to their daily routines.

The Number 2 is the perfect friend you will ever have. This number is placed behind the Number 1 for a very good reason: if Number 1 breaks, Number 2 will always be there to catch its fall and heal it, until it is ready for another good fight.
This is exactly how the Number 2 spends its lifetime and they are happy doing it. In fact, it is what makes them feel satisfied. The people who know them might shower them with rewards or praises, but numerology 2 will never cease on helping others with all their hearts. They will never expect anything in return for the noble things they do. They simply want peace wherever they go and people who are willing enough to listen and heed their advice.

They will make sure to always be there for you, whether you need them or not. They know how life becomes a little better if there is always someone willing to keep you company, no matter what the circumstance is.

Number 2 people are known for their resilience and unwavering support to others in need and they often end up choosing careers that let them continue helping in whatever manner possible. Do not be surprised if a Number 2 person that you know chooses to be a caregiver or a doctor. They will surely consider the medical field seriously and choose to practice it with the utmost sincerity.
Other professions that a Number 2 person might choose can be waiting at diners, real estate, teaching, fashion advice, and even matchmaking. To others who think big, some of these professions might seem like another boring nine-to-five job. To a Number 2, these professions help put them in the right spot – the background. It is where they put themselves to help other people shine their brightest.
Number 2 people do not crave the limelight as much. They have the purest of intentions when helping out – to share a deep happiness to those who need them the most. We all know that the world badly needs people with sincerity that never wavers. This is exactly what a Number 2 is willing to give and do not see the need to gloat afterward.
It might seem random to you, but to a Number 2, the careers mentioned above enables them to find various ways to help people out. They do not mind if the person in need knows whether he or she needs help. They are more than willing to lend a hand to help the person pick the pieces up if they are already broken. A Number 2 person will also be happy to break your fall, or better, prevent something bad from happening if they can. They often do not mind what is needed to be done in order to help out, as long as they know that it will not harm other people along the way.
If they think you are missing an important point or being confounded by a certain situation, rest assured they will come to you and let you know. You do not have to worry because people guided by the Number 2 will never try to make a point while arguing. These people believe in making a point while keeping a friend.

In case a Number 2 does something that affects you negatively, you do not need to say it to their face. They already know and they are already feeling sorry about it. Do not expect them to say sorry, though. For a Number 2, being sorry is not simply shown by saying it. For them, it should also be reflected in their deeds. They will not say sorry, but they will do their best to make things right again. The people guided by the Numerology 2 are very thoughtful.
They also have the gift of persuasion. The will not resort to persuading you in a harsh manner. These are the people who can persuade you because they can make you understand the situation by letting you see it the way they do. Thus enabling some emotions in you that will lead you to do the right thing.
Do not take it the wrong way, though. They are not manipulators and they do not spend their free time making people do whatever they want. They are just all about peace and they will spread it when and wherever they can.
