The Achievement number is a guiding light in your Numerology Chart.

It’s a number that directs you to your potential…. yet how much do YOU know about it?

Achievement Number 16PinAchievement Number 16 Reading

Achievement Number, 16, is called a “Karmic Number”.

This means that it has special properties that mean so much more than its sum (which is 7), and its simple component digits 1 and 6.


Achievement numbers tend to manifest first and foremost in their ‘negative’ expressions. (Though it’s important to realize that there’s no such thing as negative – everything in Numerology is here to teach us). So here with the number 7, there is some sense of spiritual growth. BUT this growth will come at a cost, and it’s usually the ego losing out.


Achievement Number 16 tends to struggle with self-trust and acceptance.

That’s not to say you have low self-esteem. This numerology is more about learning to trust intuition, and tapping into that inner knowing that it can be so difficult to hear.

Because listening to this is part of your main mission in life, you’ll likely often find yourself in situations where you’re forced to! Playing by the rules usually doesn’t work for you This is a simple expression of your Achievement Number 16, but you can grow and learn from it.

Your main lesson to learn, is that you’ll almost always come out on top if you follow your hunches, intuitions and instincts.

Even though your go-to modus operandi is to follow practical, common sense, traditional wisdom, the path of this numerological vibration is to apply your intuition in a useful way.

Whether you realize (or believe) it or not, you have a deep well of connection, and the Universe yearns to speak through you! The purpose of this Numerology is to learn to lead from this place of Spiritual wisdom. And yes, it’s difficult, and yes, you don’t always trust it. BUT it’s your path to follow! And by following it, you’ll accomplish your dreams, your goals, and your targets. But stay firmly in that left brain, and you will struggle to get where you want in life.

There may be times when other people urge you to stick with traditional ways of navigating life, but there will be other times when you realize that most of the bad decisions you’ve made were the result of trusting others!

Doing the “right thing” isn’t always the right thing for you.

Try to stop denying the power and reality of your intuition. This will trigger your ability to attract luck, good fortune, and lasting prosperity.

Practice being a bit cynical about experts, and expert opinion! The era of conventional wisdom being the only wisdom is long gone, and your numerology puts you in a position to lead a new way!

You may find that you feel doubt – doubt in yourself and doubt in people you previously trusted. This could make you want to retreat and isolate. It’s a typical (and natural) reaction to this numerology so don’t worry. But catch yourself if you withdraw too far. Come back into the world! You are needed here!

Before you awaken the power of your Karmic Number, you’ll probably tend to attract situations that cause you to be overly concerned with the plights, situations, and dramas of others. You’ll feel the urge to jump head-on into rescue mode, attempting to alleviate any suffering you can.

This is an expression of the number 6, which also occurs in this Achievement Number. Being compassionate is great, but if your unsolicited help or advice is ignored or rejected, you’ll feel deeply hurt and unappreciated.

This Achievement number may like to feel needed, but don’t look for a prize. It’s important to realize that empathy and compassion are rewards in themselves.

The good news is that it isn’t that difficult to awaken your Achievement Number.

It only takes a little effort, and most of that has to do with reframing your thinking. First of all, you need to trust yourself, and recognize that your inner life holds the key to your power, even though it isn’t always a part of conscious thought.

Secondly, you need to trust that other people will almost always act in what they believe to be their best interest. Don’t take this personally and try not to feel responsible for other choices.

Lastly, you need to trust the Universe. You are a divine being, and an integral part of the puzzle of life! Keep your connection clear and you will be shown exactly what you need to do, to find the success you desire.
