Wondering whether the number 18 has a special, spiritual 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 18 has a message for you!

What's the Meaning of Angel Number 18?What Does Angel Number 18 Mean?

This powerful number comes with multi-level meanings.

18 pertains to great wisdom and compassion, the kind that comes from experience. This number also often symbolizes endings and indicates that you’re entering a time of closure in your life. When one phase completes, another begins, so it also brings hope and a view to the future.

18 is what’s known as a composite number. It’s formed from the numbers 1 and 8, as well as the frequency of the 9*, 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 + 8 = 9). But when Angel numbers like this appear, each number alone has huge significance.

To dig a little deeper into what Number 18 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 that 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 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 & Frequency of the Number 9

The number nine is the last digit in our base-ten counting system, representing the end of the cycle. It’s unsurpassable, marking the uppermost limit of what can be discovered, and expressed inside of our human experience.

Numerologists understand that the number 9 holds an exceptionally wise, spiritual energy. It’s widely tolerant, loving and compassionate – the number nine has a beautiful, humanitarian edge.

Meaning and Frequency of the Number 18

When the number 18 shows up for you, its message always involves the blending of the digits 1 and 8. Through understanding and doing this, you’re being invited to step up in the higher frequency of the 9.

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 believe in yourself, and the divine support of the Universe!

The appearance of the number 8 within this composite Angel Number brings an added layer of meaning. Its frequency symbolizes wealth, abundance, and the manifestation of all you have been working towards! You’re an incredible position right now, so trust yourself! You are seeing an affirmation of your power, but what’s important is that you open up to receive. Your Spirit Guides and Angels want you to move forward with confidence and strength. You have everything to gain! So don’t buckle at the last hurdle. Don’t sabotage your chances of success. You are SO close to achieving your goals!

Angel Number 18 reminds you to keep thinking positive thoughts.

Keep aiming for the highest outcome, and believing that you DO deserve all you desire. But this Angel Number also urges you to check your focus. Ensure that your goals are aligned with the collective need, and with the highest good of all. Do not forget that Angel Number 18 has humanity at its center.

What do your personal efforts have at their center? How selfish, or selfless are you being? It’s time to ask the question.

What is the Message of Angel Number 18?

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 meaning of the number 18 also pertains to fruition, fulfillment, culmination, and closure. It carries the wisdom and experience that comes with all that has been.

Take stock.

Take time to look back over your recent achievements (and losses), to reflect and integrate and ask yourself, is it time to let something go? What is coming to a natural end for you? What’s coming to a not-so-natural end for you? (These things are often the hardest to spot!) But the number 18 is often a clear signal that lessons have been learned and integration must come, before releasing what no longer serves. It can draw up a mixed bag of emotions, but ultimately, the number 18 brings a time of gratitude – you are graduating from a phase of your life, so offer thanks to everything that passed, and let yourself move on!

As a deeply compassionate number, Angel Number 18 reminds you to love yourself through the process of release. It may be difficult for you, so go slowly, but ensure you cut those ties. It will serve you in the longer term.

One of the great gifts of this Angel Number is the knowledge that new opportunities are always just around the corner. The presence of the 8 amplifies this, being such a strong number of renewal and regeneration. So walk gladly and bravely onward. Angel Number 18 offers you all the Divine support you need.

But Why is 18 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 9999, 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.
