33 is well known to Numerologists as a Master Number. Traditionally, it has been depicted as the highest Master Number that could be achieved, ignoring other multiples of 11 (44, 55, etc.). As a result, it has been called the number of Christ consciousness and was given divine aspects. In reality, the number 33 functions just like any other number, albeit with Master Number characteristics. This number is a leader because it has great compassion and understanding towards others. It operates on a higher level of love and creativity. People are drawn to its seemingly friendly nature and indeed, the 33 loves to relate to others. It is extremely creative and imaginative and it is not unusual to find this number in the arts. However, it requires great courage in order to jump over every obstacle. This is turn may require sacrificing something to see it though, for others or yourself. But 33 does what it loves and is not discouraged.
33 is a Master Number and thus its anatomy is a bit different. Master Numbers are the only types of numbers where the negative value equals -0. This indicates that the challenges of all the other single cardinal numbers must be dealt with. This also includes a “-9,” which indicates problems with idealism and being overzealous, but also from living inside one’s own world, separate from reality. -0 is a challenge that denotes a high degree of sacrifice, conclusions, evolution and gullibility. Negatively, they try to help everyone they meet, but life’s circumstances will show them better. Trying to get along with the rest of the world and its people is also a common problem.
This is one reason why the Master Numbers are so difficult to live with. It takes time for someone with this number to acquaint themselves with it. Often times, Master Numbers are not fully expressed until later in life for this reason. This includes associating one self with every challenge apparent in the -0. This also includes the double 3, the 3 focusing upon itself, its same power doubled. If used correctly, a high level vibration of love (the +6) is manifested.
Two different personality types are often in association with 33: one that is a leader who is not afraid of living in the higher realms of love and sacrificing themselves for the betterment of a cause they believe in, and one that scatters their energies frivolously in sexual escapades, drug addictions and other self destructive behaviors.
