The numerology number 1 is self-determined and self-sufficient.
It goes about its own business, pursues its own goals, and has no need for companionship.
The number 1 feels an urge to explore new ideas, and new physical locations. It also feels an urge to see how much more existing machinery or structures can accomplish. The number can coexist with others but is comfortable being alone. It has no requirement for companionship or partnership.
The deep down basic essence of the numerology number 1 is aloneness.
It is the aloneness of sudden separation from the essence of the numerology number 0. See Number 0 Meaning for a description of the 0 essence.
The 1 essence is an inversion of the 0 essence, "all that is" inverted to "alone." To understand this, it may help to think of it as feeling like a sudden separation from everything.
The aloneness brings a determination to explore and to find out what this being alone is about. To determine the characteristics and potentials of the vibration itself. To experience the vibration.
Exploration brings with it absolute independence. Being alone is an absence of interference.
The essence is by nature self-sufficient. Although alone, nothing is needed for continued existence.
The essence of the numerology number 1 is aloneness imbued with self-sufficiency and exploration.
The number 1 tends to be comfortable within social gatherings, but generally doesn't feel as much as a part of it that other numbers might. It's optimistic where it's own goals and activities are concerned, yet doesn't identify much with others' pursuits that don't align with it's own.
It's attracted to expression of its independence. Opportunities to explore appeal to it. It can be a leader, and a good one, but may have less empathy for the followers than the followers would desire.
The number 1 cherishes its independence and the ability to make up its own mind and to pursue it's own goals without hampering by others.
1 can be aloof, especially when it feels it's being judged as inadequate or unacceptable in some way. It doesn't need understanding or praise, just to be left alone to be what it is without interference or disparagement from others.
People with number 1 qualities tend to be leaders because the number carries a strong masculine energy. This doesn’t mean that only men have number 1 qualities though – men and women can have the characteristics of this strong number.
In careers, number 1s are often CEOs, managers, entrepreneurs, or inventors.
Number 1s are highly driven, creative, independent, and excel in any field of their choosing.
However, people with this number can also sometimes be overly demanding or critical of others, and while they may not show it, they can struggle with feelings of self-doubt.
Number 1 traits include:
From a spiritual perspective, it is the number of creation - the primal force from which all other numbers spring forth. It is said that once you truly understand the place and function of this most primal of all numbers, enlightenment will be yours. This statement, of course, does not apply to a Numerologist's perspective alone, but perhaps it is a good place to start, as the personality of the number 1 aligns nicely with its more elevated spiritual symbolism.
It is aggressive, a necessary energy for creating, advancing, and not allowing anything to limit its potential. The 1 is the spearhead, always in the forefront directing and leading others.
The shape of this number reflects its meaning. The 1 walks upright with pride and purpose: strong, determined, unwavering, with a specific goal in mind. The 1 is capable of turning ideas into reality. It pushes obstacles aside or simply drills right through them.
It trusts its ability to separate right from wrong. It doesn't waste time on abstract ideas or follow paths that are not in line with its result oriented goals. The 1 is no preacher, no philosopher, spiritual explorer, nor dreamer - and certainly not an idealist. It is a pragmatist, ruthless conqueror, and warrior extraordinaire. The 1 is individualistic and independent to a fault. It will attempt to force its viewpoint on you, but has no desire to hear yours.
The 1 can be confrontational, jealous and exceedingly stubborn, but also courageous and willing to try anything new (with promise) even at great risk. The 1 has a sense of honor and responsibility that demands our respect, and is the first to defend injustice and hypocrisy.
Fortunately, they have a great capacity for humor, often self-depreciating, so you can poke fun at your friend and not worry about hurt feelings. But don’t cater to a 1 to win love or friendship or you will lose its respect; stand up to a 1 and you may lose the fight, but you'll gain respect. Working for a 1, you will be pushed to the limit, abused at all hours, and incapable of living up to unreasonable expectations. But you will also, without a doubt, become the best you can be.
If you are in trouble, you want a friend with a strong 1 on your side - there is not a more dedicated protector or braver partner. If the 1 is your enemy, you will be crushed without mercy. And be forewarned, the number 1 is the most difficult of all lovers: demanding, jealous, confrontational and impatient.
