In today’s digital world, number sequences are one of the very best ways the Divine (the universe, Source, God, Goddess… whatever you wanna call it) grabs our attention.
So if Angel Number 23 is showing up for you… you better sit up and listen!
What Does Angel Number 23 Mean?
Number 23 is an unusual and important Angel number, and is what’s known as a composite number. So it’s meaning is born from the 2 and the 3.
*Normally, in numerology, we sum and reduce numbers to a single digit to find their core meaning (in this case, 2 + 3 = 5). But when Angel numbers like this appear, each number alone has huge significance. That means, the 2, 3 and the number 5 all have a frequency to bear, and a message to bring.
So to dig a little deeper into the meaning of the number, let’s break it down…
Meaning & Frequency of the Number 2
In numerology, the number 2 is feminine in nature. It holds many of the essentially feminine qualities, such as receptivity, creativity and intuition. It pertains to relationships, and receptivity, cooperation, and coupledom. This number is also a deeply psychic, spiritual and intuitive number. The 2 also symbolizes healing, bringing unity and wholeness in a way that no other number can.
Meaning & Frequency of the Number 3
3 is the number of creativity, communication, and expression.
For Numerologists, 3 is the number of the child – it symbolizes the growth and magic that results from the combination of two other things; it is chock-full of energy and possibility! This number is the fruits of your labors, it represents authentic expression, abundance, and the truth within each of us that needs to be shared.
Meaning & Frequency of the Number 5
In Numerology, five is a number with an excitable, flexible and freedom-focused vibration. It’s adventurous, footloose and thrives on change and variety. It’s also a number of regeneration, it deeply understands the principles of growth and the necessity of stepping beyond the confines of the ordinary to achieve true freedom.
Because this number vibrates so strongly to the frequency of change, it often requires surrender and trust in the innate intelligence of the Universe.
Meaning and Frequency of the Number 23
Whenever the 2 shows up in an Angel Number, it’s meaning pertains to two things (that’s a surprise, eh?)
- Spiritual Guidance, and
Angel Number 23: Boost Your Intuition
When you see this powerful number, it’s an invitation to stop what you’re doing and tap into your intuition. How do you really feel about the situation you’re either in, or thinking about? Your Angels have grabbed your attention at this precise moment, because there’s a divine message that you need. It’s likely not logically, or rationally clear – you’re being encouraged to use your sixth sense here.
Practice flexing those intuitive muscles and trust your inner voice. There is wisdom you need to hear, but you need to quieten down to hear it.
Angel Number 23: Get Creative in Your Relationships
If this number appears (and keeps appearing) then ask yourself whether your closest friends, partners or lover could do with some attention.
- Are you making enough time for other people in your life?
- Are you creating opportunities for intimacy?
- Are you sharing?
- Are you having enough fun?
It’s easy to take our relationships for granted.
So when this number appears it can be a sure sign that it’s time to step up the care and intention you’re offering those you’re closest to. But specifically, Angel Number 23 is a sign that your partnerships with other people need an injection of something a little bit… playful!
The number 3 here symbolizes fun, creativity, and self-expression. You’re being invited to be vulnerable, to show something of your real self, your true self to the people around you. It’s likely time to take a partnership or friendship up to the next level.
Your Angels and Spirit Guides are here to guide you onto your highest life path. BUT you need to participate. Go there. Take a risk. Stop being the one to hide. Be a little silly, try a creative exercise… the key here is to trust your intuition. Combine this with your creativity, and you’ll ascend to a great place of freedom!
As well as shifting the focus onto relationships, Angel Number 23 is also guiding you towards the spiritual meaning of the number 3.
It’s time to get creative!
When the 3 appears in an Angel number, it’s a reminder to use your voice.
Say what you mean.
This number can often show up for people when they’re feeling small, inadequate and lacking in self-worth. At times like these, your Angels are on hand to help. And this is one of those times.
You must see Angel Number 23 as a really positive sign. It’s a sign that your voice and your expression is what the world needs. So by trusting yourself and your creativity, and the energy that wants to move through you, you are actually becoming a channel for divine expression! Your Angels want you to know that you’re on the right path! So keep going!
But on the other hand, if you keep playing small, you are standing in the way of the new and exciting information that the word SO needs. The number 23 is calling you out of your self-doubt! Your Angels want you to believe in yourself – your vision and voice are so valuable, and they are what will light the way to freedom.
Angel Number 23: Follow the Pathway to Freedom
Ultimately, if Angel number 23 is showing up for you, the most important message to understand involves the blending of 2 and 3. Through this, you’re being invited to step up in the higher frequency of the 5.
Throughout the art of numerology, the 5 equates to freedom and change. When you see Angel Number 23, it means that change is coming. But the way to welcome it, gracefully into your life, is to trust your intuition and combine this with creative self-expression. Your Angels are urging you NOT to follow the herd. Stop coloring inside the lines and take a few risks.
Tell that boy you love him! Do it in a creative, surprising and playful way! Or maybe in your work, you need to step outside of that comfort zone and make a few brave connections. But again, be light, be playful and show something of your own, authentic self.
These are your tools to freedom! Yet this Angel Number is about more than that – it’s about the freedom of everyone else too. Because when you’re brave enough to follow the signs, you open up the way for others to do the same.
But Why is 23 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 1111, 1212 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.
