Number 0

The number 0 represents nothingness, void, and infinity in numerology. Although zero in the realm of mathematics has neither a positive nor a negative numerical value, there are positive and negative aspects to zero within the Kaylean theorem. It represents the number of the greatest transformations.  The moment of truth, realization, and limitlessness.  It is a number that knows harmony, potential, and choices.  It is observant. 


But reversed, it can spell death, non-existence, and chaos.  It can represent lies, narrow-mindedness and aimless drifting.  

Letter associations: A, Z

Number 1

The number 1 is a number of forward motion and progression. Beginnings, self-determination, self-sufficient, upbeat approach, seems to have a guardian angel.  Nothing else can happen without number 1, which finds fulfillment in continuing to advance.

The most independent of all the numbers, requiring only its own energy to survive. It doesn't wait around for opportunities to present themselves; instead, it creates its own luck by taking advantage of situations that other people might be reluctant to explore. The single-digit number 1 is impatient and doesn't want to spend time haggling or making plans. Being independent enables more flexibility and swift, effective movement.  It is a pioneer, proactive. 

The innovative spirit of this number can come up with fresh concepts and inventive ways to get around problems. One views difficulties as a challenge rather than being daunted by them. The key to the success of the 1 sees opportunity where others see roadblocks.  It is considered to be Feminine Winner Mentality in Chaldean definitions, desiring freedom and abundance in order to succeed.  One dislikes authority, and is more physical than spiritual.

Negative aspects of 1:  This number has a relentless attitude that might make it appear bossy as it pushes forward while also giving it an air of ambition.  Too preoccupied with its own goals to even be aware of when it has offended someone. In the name of motion and advancement, softer energies of cooperation and patience are pushed aside.  Although the number 1 may like to think of itself as courageous, it is all too easy for it to get caught up in danger that could have been avoided had there been a little more foresight. Due to a sense of invincibility, the 1 may not notice warning signs in its peripheral vision since it is so fixated on the road in front of it.  Negative 1 can be seen as moving backward, lazy, or also selfish, lonely and self-serving.

Number 11

11 is one of the Master Numbers.  You don't usually need to reduce it to its Core number, because it is such a heavy number as it is, although it is still rooted to it's core number of 2   ( 1 + 1 = 2 ).  It draws strengths from its double digit.  It is the number of the Aged Soul - full of intuition and wisdom gained over time, as well as intuitive and psychic.  It is a number of mental clarity, and also of teamwork.  However.  It is a very ominous number as well.  The wisdom gained from 11 can be at a high cost - wisdom from extremes, from betrayals and treachery.  It is also a number of coinciding events - a duality, conflict, multiple perspectives or goals. There is strength in this card but not without great obstacles to overcome, and struggle.

Negative Aspects of this number might seem more relevant than the upright, and also impact even the upright definitions.  The trials involved with this number are so heavy that they can cause self-doubt, low self-esteem, stress, over-stimulation.  It can weigh heavy.  As such, it can generally be thought of as a number of warning, and ominous.

Number 15

The number 15 is open to using magic to manipulate situations to achieve desired outcomes.  Willing to try anything that sounds reasonable.  It's also a number of nurturing, harmony, home, healing, and the changes that love brings.  Not an ominous number - in fact, it's a fortunate number with good intentions.  There's a sort of witchy charismatic magnetism with 15.

However, 16 can come across as a busy-body, or demanding.  16 can also be a warning of impending doom - especially of the death of a family member, either indicating that a family member has passed or will soon pass.

Number 17

17 represents a strong, independent, memorable person, someone who uses business as a tool, who is intent on acquisition for the betterment of all.  An explorer, respectful, responsible, an efficient and effective manager.  Intelligent, and with a high IQ, 17 will "rise superior in spirit to the difficulties of life.  Always efficient, 17 maintains a balance between goals and accomplishment, between resources and expectations, and between business activity and public relations.

Negative aspects of this number: Can be co-dependent, or "all work no play".  Can feel like walking through a tunnel of a constant learning process, or like true success is always just out of reach.

Number 22

Numbers that are double digits of the same number are Master Numbers.   What makes these numbers really special is the fact that they contain layers upon layers of meanings. In addition to the energies of the repeated number they are made of, they contain the energies of the number they reduce to.

22 is the "Master Builder", making dreams a reality with confidence, balance and creativity.  22 is confident and ambitious, with clearly-defined goals, knowing with certainty that it has the personal power sufficient to succeed.

Number 24

24 is wrapped up in conservative family values, harmony within the family, supporting each other in a secure environment, and sharing the same beliefs.   The energy of 24 isn't leadership energy. Instead, it tends to resonate best when involved directly with members of the family or team as an equal. When necessary, 24 functions behind the scenes to lessen hurts and bring members back into the fold.  A number of order, integrity, justice, commitment.  A number of returning successful.  A proud diplomat.  Gains through love and the opposite sex.  A firm handshake.  A man of his word.

26 is full of the gravest warnings for the future. It foreshadows disasters brought about by association with others; ruin by bad speculations, by partnerships, unions, and bad advice. If it comes out in connection with future events one should carefully consider the path one is treading.

With 26, one can achieve great success rapidly, but one will eventually lose it extremely fast. When this happens, one will have a feeling of life being like a ruin.  One’s life constantly starts over, and life often becomes a struggle of rebuilding instead of living  Constantly building and rebuilding seems to be a common theme with this number. 


But with great change comes great transformation, and growth.

An unfortunate number upright, reversed it can indicate ruin, bad advice, endings, disaster and loss.

Number 27

It gives a grave warning if it comes out in anything concerning future events. It’s like the compound number of 11/2 on steroids.  29 is often associated with criminal behavior or people who work with criminals such as defense lawyers etc.

Number 30

Philosopher. Profound mindset.  Seeing things from a higher perspective. This is a number of thoughtful deduction, retrospection, and mental superiority over one’s fellows on the mental plane.  It can be all-powerful, but it is just as often indifferent according to the will or desire of the person.  30 is interested in history because it likes to understand why things are the way they are now, and how things became this way. People who are represented by the compound number of 30/3 are much in their head, and therefore they prefer a small group of friends rather than a vast army of acquaintances.

Negative aspects of 30:  Can come across as having a superiority complex, egotistical, snobby, selfish, self-serving.  Can use intellect to manipulate.  Feels entitled.

Number 31

Money and material success flow easily with 32. It’s also a number of corporate businesses and strong abilities to get wealthy, and for international travel if balanced. It’s a number seen among many corporate CEOs and major corporations.

Negative aspects of 32:  The Emperor's New Clothes sort of energy.  Can seem puffed up, braggart.

Number 33

Numbers that are double digits of the same number are Master Numbers.  What makes these numbers really special is the fact that they contain layers upon layers of meanings. In addition to the energies of the repeated number they are made of, they contain the energies of the number they reduce to.


  As such,

33 holds a prominent place in numerology as the Master Teacher.  Height of spiritual growth. Zealous, compassionate, knowledgeable, loving.  Intuitive visionary qualities with the ability to manifest in the material world.  Inspiring others, lifting them to a higher plane of existence.  

But this can leave 33 feeling drained, or overburdened.  33 can also be smothering.

Can be too selfless, and if unbalanced (reversed) can indicate a need to re-evaluate choices, direction, opportunities or perspectives.  Although tolerant and non-judgmental, can still come across as insensitive to the feelings of others and self-righteous due to lack of filters.

Number 37

37 is known as the "Royal Star of the Bull" and a fortunate counterpart to 23, which is known as the Royal Star of the Lion.  These two numbers together are very powerful. (There are 2 other Royal Stars - 51 & 65 - but this deck only goes to 44).

This number has a distinct potency of its own. It is a number of good and fortunate friendships in love, and combinations connected with the opposite sex. It is also good for partnerships of all kinds. It is a fortunate indication if it appears in connection with future events. 37 represents a highly intellectual mind, the potential to achieve major international business and getting wealthy.  37 also has a very strong intuition and gut feeling, and creates a high level of popularity among people. If the compound number of 37 is balanced, it will create a rock-star attitude.  High status, celebrity, independence and bold decisions are associated with 37.  Creatively enjoys expressions of independence, and the sense of "rightness" and fulfillment that such freedom and independence brings.

Number 39

If perfectly balanced, 39 can be a powerful, winner mentality.  But if one doesn't rid themselves of negativity, they will attract more with 39.  With 39, the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the one, or the few.   Although tolerant, 39 holds a more or less private idealistic vision for humankind, and is hopeful for the future to be better.  Sometimes regarded as a perfect number, very connected to travel and communication.

Unbalanced (reversed) 39 can be cursed, shamed, or prostituted.

Number 40

40 is all about pragmatism.  A number of dignity, security and method, 40 is focused on building the foundation through step-by-step progress.

Unbalanced (reversed) 40 can feel stuck, plagued with self-limiting beliefs, or stuck in negative cycles of its own creation.

Number 41

41 can be thought of as the doorway to opportunities and encourages one to follow their instincts.  Trust inner wisdom.  In business, motion and relationships, it's moderately fortunate.  Conscientious.

Number 42

42 awakens with vision and the heart's desire, love, and passion.  A nurturing, romantic number, whether family or romantic interests.

Unbalanced (reversed) 42 can indicate being stuck in a rut and needing to start down a new path.  Lust.   Unrequited love.

Number 43

43 is Introspective, analytical and pragmatic.  However this number is unfortunate when associated with future events. It is symbolized by the signs of revolution, upheaval, strife, failure, and prevention. Also stillbirth, so this number has been known to be avoided on maternity wards.


43 often makes the impression on people that they are “pain in the ass”. Even if they have a point in what they say, they are mostly disliked. They often appear in a very annoying way in the public eye.

Number 44

As a Master Number (double digit of same number), with 4 translating to grounded structure and discipline, 44 will heighten that energy. These energies translate to being a stickler for rules, or a more positive side would be making law-making or law-enforcement a career.


44 is known as the Rare Healer.  Professional, driven by love, influential and strong willed.  44 is a realistic number, not easily fooled by grand promises or scams and makes pragmatic use of past successes, self-discipline and confidence.

However, can also lead others astray, and is unmotivated without love.  And, the karmic penalty with 44 can be extremely intense.
