Life Path Number 22

You were born under the most powerful and potentially the most successful of all Life Path numbers. It offers you the extremes of life’s possibilities: on one hand, you have the potential to be the Master Builder, the person capable of perceiving something great in the archetypal world and manifesting it in the relative world; on the other hand, you can slip into the depths of obscurity, achieving little more than personal support.

Your power is delicate. It exists by virtue of your ideals and vision, which you must use to inspire others to join you in your dream. Only by marshalling collective forces are you able to bring together the necessary elements – people, ideas, resources – that will enable you to realize your goals. Consequently, your Life Path is one requiring dramatic evolution. By being able to integrate seemingly conflicting characteristics within yourself – your inspiring vision and your natural tendency toward practicality, for example – you develop the talent to deal effectively with a great variety of people. This allows you to understand and unite many differing people toward a single goal, melding them into a concerted whole. Your task in life is to unite the dream with the bottom line. In short, you are the visionary with your feet on the ground. You are good at business and politics. You naturally understand large institutions, and have the ability to think and act on an international scale. You are gifted with uncommonly sound common sense. You are able to see the beauty and potential in a given idea, but also the practical methods that will bring it to fruition. Somehow, you understand the limitations of ideas – - what will work and what will not. This is an intuitive gift that can evaluate possibilities on the basis of their practicality.

You have a touch of mysticism about you, your intuition, makes you a competent planner and Organizer, operating on a high-voltage wave length. You waver between eccentricity and genius, thereby influencing and further developing your creative, mechanical and inventive skills. You will be attracted to many ideas, projects, schemes, or ventures that are far beyond the expectations of your fellow associates.

Your personality is extremely compelling, effective, enterprising, productive and reforming. However, you must always be alert and control your blatant, egotistic, obsessed and highly strung side of your character, otherwise, you will suffer from time to time from covert individuals or hidden enemies, who will endeavour to pull the rug from under your feet, when you are not looking. With practical, well-intentional application, you will always overcome life’s difficulties in your search for the big picture. Your absolute desire for honesty and truthfulness from others is important to you, this is why, you may devote some of your spare time to philanthropic or metaphysical endeavours that benefit everyone. You may be attracted to careers of a specialised nature, areas of big business, management, media, arts, military, law, politics, psychology, welfare, medical, travel, metaphysics, and self-employment. You will at times prefer to spend time alone developing and analysing plans for important new ventures; you may tier of routine things very quickly, always looking around the corner for a new and exciting challenge to keep your enthusiasm alive.

You need to take time out to meditate and reflect occasionally, to examine your progress and understand what you have accomplished and what you have failed to achieve. Throughout your destiny luck and good fortune will always accompany you; however, your emotional life will need to be tidied up from time to time. Compatibility, is important to you and you will not tolerate any possessiveness, restriction, limitation, or smothering from your partner or spouse. As a parent you can be very generous and giving in the material sense, but may have difficulty at times, showing your true deep emotions, to those you love. Others, will invariably sense an air of mystery, secretiveness, surprise, or unknown quantity about you, however, you will always have an ace up your sleeve.

While in many aspects the 22 is the most promising number, it is also the most difficult to live up to. You have a great ambition, which can be a most difficult master, driving you to accomplish all that you are capable of. You are a steady partner in any relationship. You offer sound advice and consistent emotional support. You do not suffer from flights of fancy, and naturally resist the emotional heights. You are unconventional in thought and action, but tend to be traditional in appearance. You avoid airs and pretension.

Your challenge is to share your vision and allow others to make their personal contributions. That requires flexibility on your part, perhaps your weakest characteristic. You often lack faith in the ability of others. Therefore, you tend to control people and situations, sometimes tempted to manipulate. In the end, you must learn to surrender to the larger cause that you serve. The final result may be quite different from your original vision, but with faith and commitment you will make an enduring impact on the world.

You are romantic, but your love is more impersonal. You tend to be focused on your dreams. When you are not in harmony with your true nature, you can fall to moodiness, or become aloof, and withdrawn. You can become timid, uncertain, and ungrateful, putting the blame for your troubles on others or the world. You have a gift for examining your life objectively, and at some distance. Be honest with yourself. By openly facing your shortcomings, as well as your strengths, you develop equilibrium. You are thus able to love and better understand yourself and all of life.
