Numerology Meanings: Number 2 (Two)

The purpose of the Numerology Meanings series is to provide an in-depth interpretation of numbers using metaphysics and occult sciences including numerology, astrology, tarot, chakras and more.

The Numerology Meanings series will focus on the holistic (complete) and occult (hidden) vibration of the numbers not just life path numbers or surface level descriptions.  These number definitions can apply to people, places, and things.

Numerology Meanings: Number 2 (Two)

The number 2 represents balance.  Whereas one brings independence and individuality, two seeks to balance and cooperate.  Thus, 2 infuses harmony when used at its highest expression.

One symbolizes the man and two symbolizes the female. The number 2 is a yin (feminine) number by nature.  It’s at home playing the background or supportive role.  Two does not seek the attention that the number one demands.

With the number 2 being second in sequence it represents follow-up, follow through, and second chances.  Two picks up where one began.  The number two reinforces the leading one.  It’s the supporting actor in the movie of numbers.

The number 2 on a deeper level represents polarity or duality.  Really any double or paired force but especially these.  Polarity or duality gives the number 2 a chance to cooperate in its natural role or cause imbalance and challenges.

In polarity, the number 2 provides the opposite yet equal part to balance and harmonize life and any situation within.  Polarity’s full expression is yin/yang balance – masculinity (1) and femininity (2) in harmony.  Pole is the root word in polarity and represents two points that seem opposite but need each other to exist.

There would be no such thing as man without woman, or dry without wet, or good without bad. The polarizing nature of physical reality allows choices.  So, the number 2 represents choice and options that can reach from one end of the spectrum to the farthest extreme and everything in between.

In duality, the number 2 causes friction and discord.  This truth gives rise to what we know as a duel.  A duel is combat between two people.  A duel pits you: (1) against someone else (2) as opposing forces (duality) instead of harmonizing and balancing each other (polarity).

Duality teaches us that we can resist and have conflict with any single thing outside of self. Depending on the nature in which the 2 chooses to express itself, it will cause harmony or chaos.  Period.

Two also symbolizes the mother.  And, astrologically speaking, mom is represented by the moon. The mom is usually the parent that teaches us about playing well with others.

The feminine, maternal energy of the 2 makes it very receptive and psychic sensitive.  Intuition is natural for the number 2.  Why?  Because the number 2 is emotional and this sensitivity allows for it to be empathic or able to pick up on energies.  The number 2 gives credence to the phrase “mother’s intuition”.

In Numerology, the number 2 is associated with the astrological sign of Cancer.

Cancer, the crab, is an emotional, caring, and sensitive type energy.  Cancer, being a water sign, is emotionally based and extremely intuitive.  Cancers are dependable and motherly by nature.

In Chinese Astrology Cancer is similar to the Sheep/Goat.

Cancer is governed by the moon and is the fourth sign of the Zodiac.  Cancer’s element is water.


Numerology associates each letter with a number so each number represents letters.  The letters that correspond with the number 2, in the Pythagorean system, are b, k, and t.

In the Chaldean system, the number 2 is associated with b, k, and r. Chaldean numerology predates the western form and does not assign any letters to the number 9 as they felt that 9 was sacred.


The Tarot is a type of divination that uses archetypal energy to give insight into any area of life.  The deck is divided into two sections, the Minor and Major Arcanas.  The Tarot’s Major Arcana cards are all assigned a number.

The High Priestess card is #2 in the Tarot.  The High Priestess represents balance, intuition, and mystical or spiritual power. The two pillars show a black and white polarity with the High Priestess seated in-between.  She is soft and subtle yet profoundly powerful and strong.




A chakra is an energy hub that dispenses energy to different parts of your body. Chakras also hold memories that correspond to the emotional vibration it represents.

The sacral chakra (swadhisthana) is the second energy center in the chakra system. The emotions and energies that the sacral chakra represent are desires, raw creativity, and emotions.

Each chakra has a 7 year cycle when we are mostly concentrating on the lessons that each chakra teaches.  The cycle for the sacral chakra is from 7 to 13 years old.  This is the time when we want (desire) everything, are emotional, and psychic sensitive.
