Wondering whether the number 17 has a special, spiritual, secret meaning?
If you’ve been seeing it crop up in your life just a few too many days this week to fall into the “coincidence” category, then you’ve come to the right place!
Repeating number patterns AKA Angel Numbers, are definitely no coincidence. In fact, in today’s digital world, number sequences are one of the main methods the Divine (the Universe, Source, God, Goddess… whatever you wanna call it) uses to grab our attention. And these patterns hold very specific meanings, so listen up – Angel Number 17 has a message for you!
What Does Angel Number 17 Mean?
Angel Number 17 is an incredible omen!
As a powerful sign of power and opportunity, the appearance of this number in your life indicates a time of conscious awareness and intent. You’re in a position of great influence right now. But care and understanding are required, for you to reach fullness and the abundance that’s waiting.
17 is what’s known as a composite number. It’s formed from the numbers 1 and 7, as well as the frequency of the 8*, so it contains undertones of all three numbers.
*Normally, in numerology, we sum and reduce numbers to find their core meaning (in this case, 1 + 7 = 8). But when Angel numbers like this appear, each number alone has huge significance.
To dig a little deeper into what Number 17 means, and more importantly, what it’s message for you is, let’s break it down…
Meaning & Frequency of the Number 1
In Numerology, the 1 is the beginning, the very first of all numbers. It brings new beginnings. It holds an energy which is independent, pioneering, initiating and motivating. Numerologists regard the 1 as masculine (though bare in mind there’s no gender bias in numerology). So it symbolizes the most primal and traditional masculine traits, such as ambition, confidence, bravery, and self-expression. This number is closely related to the ego and the self.
Meaning & Frequency of the Number 7
In numerology, the number 7 is a deeply mystical, spiritual number.
It represents the meeting point between Earth and Spirit, the place where embodied learning occurs. It holds the search for understanding and it represents the deeper meaning to be found beneath the surface.
This number has a unique, solitary vibration and often represents the need to go within, reflect, and seek inner wisdom
Meaning & Frequency of the Number 8
In almost all systems of Numerology, eight is the number of renewal.
It often pertains to power and money (those being the most common languages we speak these days) but in fact, the number 8 brings balance. Just like the eternal flow of the infinity symbol (which is the same as the single digit 8 on its side), the energy of the eight must keep moving. It falls, and it rises, it builds and it destroys.
The 8 is both constant and extreme.
Meaning and Frequency of the Number 17
When the number 17 shows up for you, its message always involves the blending of the two digits 1 and 7. Through understanding and doing this, you’re being invited to step up in the higher frequency of the 8.
Any Angel number that contains the 1, is calling you into your power. This number code is urging you to make positive and assertive life choices. It comes as a reminder that what you’re thinking and feeling in each moment holds huge potential, so focus your intent consciously. Direct your gaze towards what truly matters to you (to your soul, not to your ego). Personal willpower can be a miraculous tool for good things to manifest, so use yours wisely.
It’s time to trust yourself and choose to act with full integrity.
The appearance of the number 7 within this composite Angel Number brings an added layer of meaning. It brings the search for deeper meaning and truth. You’re being urged to reflect, to go within and listen to your inner wisdom. When the 7 appears in any Angel number, it’s a sign that your Angels want you to widen the doors of your perception. There is more to your situation than meets the eye. Likely, there’s a deeper, spiritual significance here, that you’re just not seeing yet. Perhaps you’re repeating a pattern of behavior, falling into the same old trap, or avoiding the facts, because you don’t like what they show?
Be honest with yourself
And allow yourself the space and time to uncover what needs to be seen. Perhaps a day-to-day meditation practice would serve you at the moment?
What is the Message of Angel Number 17?
This is a number of encouragement… but it’s also a warning.
All Angel numbers are symbols of divine protection and support, so firstly, drop any fear that you have. Seeing this number means that your angels are close, and you are connected to Spirit. Trust your path.
The Number 17 often comes as a forerunner to huge success! Its underlying frequency of the 8 symbolizes wealth and abundance, and the manifestation of all you have been working towards!
The truth is, we are always capable of achieving whatever we desire – it is the personal sabotage and limiting thoughts which prevent us from getting there. Don’t fall into the trap this time. Number 17 is urging you onwards on your path – take the risk, believe in yourself and put paid to the doubts! The Number 1 is propelling you forward, so don’t look back! But the number 7 here, reminds you to stay conscious. The power of the 8 is huge, and comes with a ripple effect that will flow out, beyond your awareness. Other people will be affected by what you do now. Your work in the world carries benefits that will reach out far and wide!
But don’t scatter your energy.
Research thoroughly. Ask questions. Plan diligently. And always follow your heart.
Your intuition is your greatest ally right now!
Angel Number 17 reminds you not to cut corners, not to flaunt the rules (which doesn’t mean not taking risks – just act with integrity!) and to be a shining example to others. The energy that your actions carry is what matters, so be loving and honest.
Abundance is yours! You just need to meet it half-way, in order to receive it fully!
But Why is 17 an “ANGEL NUMBER”… What Does that Even Mean?
OK, Let’s backtrack for a moment. Are you new to Angel Numbers?
Angels are the messengers of Spirit. They communicate with us through many forms and languages, including numbers. The world we live in today is so highly digitalized, that numbers are everywhere, which makes it easy for Angels to speak through them.
Think about it – repeating number sequences like 8888, 1010 and even Angel Number 911 are actually designed to catch your attention. When certain number codes appear on the calendar, the clock, in the paper or anywhere else in plain sight, they’re actually sacred symbols. The purpose of Angel Numbers is to break the spell of the matrix, and to draw your attention towards the divine vibration of you and the Universe.
One of the first people to start publicly interpreting the meanings behind number sequences a few years ago was Doreen Virtue. But once you know some basic numerology, you can do this too. Many people even use number patterns as a means to connect with guardian angels on a regular basis … and with a little practice, this is also something you can do, too.
