Have you ever checked your phone and seen that it was 11:11? Or maybe you found out that your favorite song lasts two minutes and twenty-two seconds and then spent $2.22 on a coffee. You can call these “angel numbers,” and in the metaphysical worlds where I work, things don’t happen by accident. In fact, I came up with the acronym TANC for this term back in 2019, and it’s become a catchphrase in my work.
Angel numbers are the best way to explain the TANC phenomenon. You can find angel numbers on Instagram, Witchtok, Astrologytok, and Manifestationtok. What do they really mean? What do they state? How can we work together with them? Allow us to begin!
What Are Angel Numbers?
Numerology says that angel numbers are repeated sets of three or four numbers that show up in your life at random times to send you a spiritual or divine message.
Alex Getts, an astrologer and tarot card reader with almost twenty years of experience, says that angel numbers hold messages from the spiritual world. These “nudges” or signs help us go in the right direction. She says that numbers are often a way for our spirit guides to talk to us, like when they want to tell us to keep going with a hard project or take a big step we’ve been thinking about.
What Does Your Angel Number Represent?
Even though the meanings of angel numbers can be different for each person, there are some sequences that always mean the same thing.
Linda Berry, a spiritual advisor, “angel whisperer,” and owner of the Spiritual Discovery Center in Southern California, says that the number 0 stands for change. “When added to a group of two or more numbers, it will give those numbers the vibration of infinite potential,” she says. “Its energy creates a state of change where new beginnings are the norm.” How the transitional time is handled depends on how open you are to new opportunities and how badly you want to get better. Berry also says that 0 means wisdom gained from life experience, which helps spiritual growth.
Berry says that “in numerology, the number 1 stands for the beginning of all thoughts and actions.” You can feel energized, motivated, and determined when you’re around it. She says that people should act on their own terms, even if the number 1 means not following the rules. For those who see this angel number, it means you should take a strong, independent step forward.
Regarding the angel number 2, it stands for helpful energy and a desire to follow or work with others. Berry says, “It brings peace and harmony and is very flexible.” “This number is the most diplomatic, flexible, and patient of all the numbers. Everything that has this number as its part is about balance and equilibrium.”
A psychic named Michaela says, “333 is a big sign from your guides that it’s time to get balanced!” Your guardian angels want you to meditate, work out, and make that vision board you’ve been putting off for a long time. Your guardian angels want you to make changes in parts of your life that aren’t fully developed yet.
Berry says that out of all the numbers, 4 is the most careful, honest, traditional, and diligent. It stands for dedication, practicality, and focus. “The number 4 stands for someone who is honest, persistent, and dependable when they say they will do something,” she says. “This number has a sound vibration that is solid, stable, and organized. It also has a grounded energy that wants to make ideas real.”
There is a link between the angel number 5 and change, personal growth, and transformation. “This is a sign from God that good things are happening in your life,” says Johanna Agusta. Agusta tells you that when you see the number 555, it means that angels are telling you to make a good change in your life. “This could be a change in your job, your relationship, or your way of life.”
Don’t be scared of the number 666. If you thought that 666 was the “devil’s number” or the “number of the beast,” seeing it now is actually very good. In the event that you see the number 666, your guardian angels want you to stop thinking about your problems. Getts says that “the angel number 666 is a compass that helps you find balance in your life.”
This feeling usually comes up when you think negatively too much or when you refuse to let go of strong beliefs that are stopping you. If you notice this happening often, try to figure out what parts of your life are out of balance. This will help you reach your goals.
Vince Genna, author of The Secret That’s Holding You Back and a psychic therapist, says that the number seven is very spiritual and has strong vibrations. Because it has to do with God, it is the holiest number. The number is also linked to intuition, inner strength, mysticism, and wisdom. Genna says that if you keep seeing the number seven, the angels want you to follow a spiritual path and connect with your spiritual side. If things are hard in your life right now, you might want to think about the spiritual side of things.
Tracey Bond says, “The number 8 is a number charged with a lot of energy.” Add more 8s to it and turn it horizontally. It turns into the shape of the infinity sign and keeps growing. Bond says of the angel number 888, “[It] is a wonderful sign-guide on one’s path.” “It’s a sign of something new, like a birth, creation, recovery, or coming back to life.” Just be careful not to let false pride or too many pleasures take you astray with your ego, especially when it comes to your job and money.
This is one of the more interesting angel numbers: 999. Seeing it means you need to turn bad things into good ones. Getts says that seeing the number 999 means that you made spiritual and personal progress on your journey. “If this number calls to you, it might be time to let go and trust that the universe will lead you where you need to go.” Based on how much you trust it, your stronger intuition may help you make the right choices now that you are an adult.
Where Can You Look for Angel Numbers?
Part of what makes angel numbers so mysterious is that they can show up in strange places. An angel number can be found on clocks, timestamps, and alerts. You can find them in phone numbers, addresses, and license plates. Some receipts, price tags, and travel plans may even have angel numbers on them. This could be a frequency illusion, or you could think about TANC:
Heavenly numbers show up in the most ordinary places because the spiritual universe is gently reminding you that you’re going through something bigger than any ordinary event could ever describe. You have a job to do. There’s a cause.
Additionally, seeing an angel number can feel like a warm hug, especially when the way forward is unclear and uncertain. Kris Jenner, who may or may not be Calabasas, California’s guardian angel, says that angel numbers are a way of telling someone “you’re doing great, honey!”
Why Are Angel Numbers Unique?
One thing that makes angel numbers different from other occult practices is that they have nothing to do with your birthdate. While zodiac signs, astrological birth charts, and even numerology life path numbers are based on your date, time, and place of birth, angel numbers are not. Your zodiac sign might tell you about your likes, dislikes, interests, and tastes, but angel numbers don’t tell you who you are as a person. Instead, they show how you interact with the world.
Another important thing about angel numbers is that they can be used in many different ways: A person may only see an angel number once, or they may see it over and over again. It doesn’t matter how you find this mysterious signature—a long-term relationship is just as important as a one-time observation. The most important thing is that you’re paying attention.
