Here’s What Your Sun Number Reveals About You (And What Is Holding You Back)
The many aspects of numerology can helpfully illuminate different aspects of your character, highlighting strengths and exposing areas that need personal work.
Knowing your sun number is particularly helpful here—it gives a broad overview of your nature, and assist you in tuning into what can hold you back from your full potential.
Whether you’re just getting started with the Law of Attraction or have found yourself frustrated by recent setbacks, see below for ways to overcome the most common blocks associated with your sun number.
Your Sun Number is a digit between 1 and 9. Just add your month of birth to your day of birth, and then keep performing additions until you’re down to a single number.
So, if you were born on October 9, you’d add 10 (for October) to 9, giving you the number 19, then you’d add 1 and 9 to get 10, then you’d add 1 and 0 to get 1—your Sun Number.
10+9 = 19
1+9 = 10
1+0 = 1
Sun Number 1
Your stubbornness means you stick to your principles, but it’s also the main thing that stops you from living your ideal life. It’s probably very tough for you to accept that a past plan, career or relationship wasn’t right for you, but working to do so will help you move on to better things.
The trick is to avoid viewing this as failing, or as losing pride. Instead, thinking of it as learning from past experiences and evolving to suit your developing needs.
Sun Number 2
Those with a Sun Number of 2 are usually very methodical and careful in their approach to life choices, but the other side of the coin is that you probably find change quite difficult and scary.
Instead of shutting down intuitions that would lead you out of your comfort zone, listen to them and trust them. Confronting some of your fears and trying new things will lead you to productive growth.
Sun Number 3
Creativity and a child-like appreciation for life mean that you’re a natural at the more imaginative Law of Attraction exercises. On the other hand, you may be intimidated by thinking too deeply or emotionally, keeping relationships (and your thoughts) relatively light and superficial.
By deliberately engaging in self-reflection and challenging yourself to ask meaningful questions, you can access new information about your life’s true purpose.
Sun Number 4
While a connection to the Sun Number 4 is associated with dedication to goals and high levels of resilience, your perfectionist streak can keep you stuck. For example, you might be the sort of person to put off trying to manifest a dream until the circumstances are just right.
You’ll be happier if you can accept that there is no perfect time, and no perfect outcome—try to start thinking in terms of “good enough” instead.
Sun Number 5
If your Sun Number is 5, you’ve got a great capacity for coping with change and can roll with the punches. The thing that saps your power is your tendency to get impatient with routine, as using the Law of Attraction requires sticking to at least some roughly defined schedule of exercises (e.g. affirmations and a daily meditation practice).
Honing your patience will be key if your way to access the reserves of your energy that restlessness so often forces just out of reach.
Sun Number 6
As someone influenced by the Sun Number 6, your gift for harmony makes other people happy and can create some wonderfully balanced relationships. However, your frequency and manifestation potential aren’t as high as they could be, because you tend to put the needs of others before your own.
Your big personal development project should be monitoring your energy reserves more accurately and blocking off set periods of time for self-care.
People who have a Sun Number of 7 are philosophically gifted and can easily see past surface information to the hidden meanings beneath. Unfortunately, this rich inner world can also lead to an introverted demeanor, which can make you shy or hesitant when trying to form new relationships.
Try to remember that you have a lot to give to the world, and make an effort to seek out or deepen social connections.
Sun Number 8
When your life is influenced by Sun Number 8, you likely find it easier than most to find satisfaction without material possession.
The thing that most often stands between you and your full power is your desire for control—you want to be able to influence every outcome and foresee every eventuality, and may persist in indecision if you feel you lack that control. Learning to let go and trust the Universe is the best step you can take towards manifestation.
Sun Number 9
Finally, if your Sun Number is 9, your idealism puts you in a fantastic position to help make the world a better place. The way to become stronger and more effective in your Law of Attraction work will be to fully engage with your feelings, instead of aiming for objectivity and detachment.
It's only experiencing your emotions fully and genuinely that you’ll be able to locate your deepest needs and turn your dreams into reality.
