MASTER NUMBERS are double digit ciphers of the same numeral. There are nine master numbers: 11-22-33-44-55-66-77-88-99. All master numbers represent powerful energies, far greater in scope than single ciphers.

Master Numbers usually generate happy excitement for a person who has them in his or his chart. Yet, what is too often overlooked is that while master numbers are extremely powerful and bring to bear positive potentials, their power is, on the flip side, potentially as negative and destructive as it is positive. It's like nuclear energy versus a candle flame. Nuclear power has extreme potentials for both good and evil, far more intense than the power generated by the flame of a single candle. Therefore, one mustn't become overjoyed when one or more master numbers appear in his chart. Far wiser it would be to see the master number as an energy which can propel the individual to great heights or equally great depths, which can lead one to grand pedestals of nobility or dark and dank dungeons of ignobility and deep despair. It's nothing to be proud of to have a master number(s) in one's chart. Rather, it demands great wisdom, responsibility, balance and self-control because master numbers are each in themselves a two-edged sword - one blade to cut us free from the bonds of this world and the other blade to slice us into oblivion. Sobering thought.

Why are master numbers powerful? To answer this question, let's first look at the anatomy of a binary.


In the image above, the number Twelve (12) is the binary. The number Three (3) is the Addcap Crown and is derived by addition of the binary root single ciphers. The number One is the Subcap Crown and is derived by subtraction. The subcap plays a critical role in many ways, one of which serves as an anchor or balancing cipher for the addcap energy. Every binary has a subcap crown except master numbers! Look at the master number below using the number Eleven as an example.


Interesting isn't it? Here we clearly see that the master number Eleven (11) has no subcap crown and therefore there is no energy serving to keep the master number from expressing itself to the fullest! It forges ahead unchecked, unweighted, unanchored, unrooted, unchallenged.

Here's another reason why master numbers are powerful: they are the root number multiplied eleven times! The master number Eleven (11) with its Two (2) addcap crown is actually the number One multiplied by eleven. The master number Twenty-Two (22) with its Four (4) addcap crown is the number Two multiplied by eleven. The master number Thirty-Three (33) with its Six (6) addcap crown is the number Three multiplied eleven times and so forth. Thus, if a single number equaled one heater, a master number equals eleven heaters! Sitting on top of one heater may be manageable, but sitting on top of eleven heaters brings a whole new set of challenges and dynamics into the mix. In other words, master numbers are HOT!

This concept is contra distinctive to the common numerological philosophy that if a person who has a master number or numbers in his chart doesn't want to work at the level of the master number, then it's okay to simply work at the level of its crown. Not true. It is simply impossible to summarily dismiss the inherent power of a master number. A person must understand this because the power of a master number is immutable. It exists and must be managed and dealt with accordingly. The greater the power, the greater the discipline and control necessary to control it. If there is little or no discipline or control, the master number's energies will run away with a person just like a rider on a runaway horse, a dangerous scenario in which many riders have met their deaths. Some souls in history succeeded in controlling master energy, some failed and were even killed or their lives destroyed because of the individual's inability to handle the inherent power of master numbers. Thus, the adage: "Be careful what you wish for" looms ever large. If you get what you want, you may be asking for more than you can handle. A quote from Shakespeare bears weight here: "Uneasy lies the head that wears a crown." Shakespeare: King Henry IV. Part II. Act iii. Sc. 1.

The addcap of a master number is the field through which the master number's energies manifest. For example, the energy of the One in the master number Eleven is manifested through the energy field of the Two. Strangely, it's exact opposite! The energy of the Two in the master number Twenty-Two is manifested through the energy field of the Four; the energy of the Three in the master number Thirty-Three through the Six and so on.

Each single cipher root system has a master number as seen in the chart below. Master numbers are in green.
