Experiencing synchronicity with numbers is probably the most common way (outside of dreaming) that most people receive guidance from the universe.
It is so because numbers are everywhere – and the important ones often grab our attention very quickly.
We are built to see the patterns presented through number synchronicity.
The number 17 holds within it associations with money, balance and introspection – and also signals something new on the horizon.
Breaking Down Numerology Number 17
Let’s break down the meaning of the number 17 using numerology tools.
By doing this, you can see where the meaning of the number 17 comes from, which can help you to interpret its specific meaning for you.
First, we add up the digits to find the essence.
In this case, the essence of the number 17 is 1 + 7 = 8. The number 8 is the essential part of the meaning of the number, while the numbers 1 and 7 are 2nd and 3rd respectively.
The number 8 is associated with money, power and success – but that isn’t its core meaning.
The number 1 is the number of new beginnings and often shows up when a dramatic change is about to occur, or when you would be best advised to embark on a new pursuit.
It is also associated with independence, motivation and drive.
The number 7 is about introspection, intuition and intellectual pursuits.
Meditation and self-awareness exercises are often linked with the number 7, which is why many people like to practice these things on a Sunday (the 7th day of the week).
Interpreting The Meaning Of Numerology Number 17
There is no one catch-all meaning of the number 17, but by applying what we learned from breaking it down numerologically to our own lives, we can decipher the meaning.
Just remember that the order of importance for the three numbers associated with 17 are as follows:
8, 1 and 7.
So the essence of the meaning lies within balancing spiritual and material concerns, as well as money, power and success.
Most often relates to your work life balance and the importance you place on the material concerns of money and career path over more spiritual matters.
It could be the other way around.
You may be putting too much time and energy into your spiritual life, neglecting the material world that feeds your spiritual development.
Either way, the number 1’s position tells us that something new is on the way.
Either there is something you will have to react to, or your path is best served by you starting something new.
Perhaps a promotion is on the horizon, or maybe you’ll be spurred on by career stagnation to strike out on your own.
Either way, the number 7 lets you know that the answer lies within you and that you should make time to consider these concerns.
Meditation is a tool that might be particularly useful if you are experiencing synchronicity with the number 17 (or any 7-descended number).
