If you have the number 3 anywhere in your numerology chart, here are a few helpful hints to assist you to step into the power of the 3. The following is particularly important if the #3 shows up as your Life Path, Soul Urge, or Expression number. If you don’t know what these are, use our handy numerology calculator to instantly find out.

The following is also relevant if you begin to see the number 3 everywhere you go… on your phone, on license plates, addresses, etc. It may be the Universe trying to send you a message!

The 3’s motto: “Doubt kills more dreams than failure ever will.”

Here are your 3 resources:

Since your key themes are creative self-expression, emotional sensitivity, joy, communication, performance, self-doubt, fear of criticism, and emotional highs and lows, here are some suggested resources that might assist you along the way!


This is really important for you. Public speaking classes, acting classes, debate team, singing, radio broadcasting. Anything that will make you a class act in communication is perfect for you, even if (or especially if!) it feels scary. You’re consistently working with developing the utmost precision in your communication.


This is life long. Really. It is. Therapy, energy-work, support groups – anything that requires that you get up-close-and-personal about your emotional life is imperative for your growth and happiness. You’re working on positive expression on all levels.


Many times a 3 Life Path struggles with depression because of the emotional intensity that is the fabric of your life. Learn to recognize it. Realize what triggers it for you. Don’t be shy about asking for help and support.


You’re a creative creature! Know that this is your gift. Art, theatre, film, music, writing – anything having to do with communication and creativity is your gift. Get serious about what you’re good at, understand that everyone can’t do it – even though since it might feel a little easy to you, you think everyone can and tend to discount it – and then find the focus and tenacity to blaze through even the tedious or boring parts. Your task is to explore and yet finally settle on something and develop a level of expertise that goes beyond the superficial.


You need to be very aware that – since you’re so emotional – you might use food to “pad” yourself against overwhelming emotions. So “heads up” that this can be a tendency and attempt to replace emotional eating with a healthier and more empowering alternative. You also need consistent physical exercise to move all that creative energy around!
