The Meaning of Number 23
The number 23 denotes adventure with a touch of diplomacy and creativity.
This number is about freedom, sensuality, and interest in nearly everything, like the number 5.
People with 23 in their numerology charts should use their intellect, creativity, and people skills to communicate with those around them while they learn to promote themselves as a writer or salesperson (or other careers where good communication skills are necessary).
The Number 23 as a Person
If the number 23 were a person, she would be the interestingly witty child of the diplomatic number 2 and the artistic number 3. The number 5 is 23’s essence. The numbers 2 and 3 also have a hand in the meaning of the number 23, adding sensitivity to others and creativity to its essence.
The number 23’s center, 5 concerns learning about the world and applying that knowledge to those she interacts with. Much less associated with 23 than 5 (though more than 3), the number 2 contributes her diplomatic skills to the number 5.
Although 5 does well interacting with others, the number 2 may help keep her a little more grounded in relationships, sensitive to others. Finally, the number 3 adds some inspiration and tolerance so that maybe 23 can have an easier time finding a little direction and patience to create something beautiful.
The number 23 is curious, quick-thinking, only a little judgmental, and determined to express all of itself to as many as possible. She also inspires others to create while dealing with them effectively.
The number 23 also includes an optimism which helps motivate others all by itself. The number 23 may struggle with taking some time alone to develop her projects and keep her feet on the ground for longer than a few minutes.
The Number 23 in History
The Discordianists believe 23 is holy and concerns the goddess of chaos, Eris. 23rdians believe in the mystical nature of 23. There were twenty-three Grand Masters who composed the Knights Templar.
The Chinese believed the number 23 was special because it is made up of the only even prime number.
Nicolaus of Damascus reported that Roman emperor Julius Caesar was stabbed by multiple people twenty-three times. William Shakespeare was born and died on April 23 during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.
Famous for being the lead singer of Nirvana, Kurt Cobain was born and died in years which reduced to the number 23.
Things Associated with the Number 23
In the book of Psalms in the Bible, the twenty-third psalm is perhaps the most common and widely recited. In human beings, there are twenty-three pairs of chromosomes. Additionally, the normal physical biorhythm for human beings is twenty-three days.
The Latin alphabet consists of twenty-three letters, “W” being the twenty-third. The shape of “W” exemplifies the number 23 in its points: two points point downward and three point upward. “W” is known as a mark of superiority by some.
Apparently, there is a Birthday Paradox which explains that there is more than a fifty percent chance that two out of twenty-three people will have the same birthday (when those people are chosen at random).
Those with the Number 23 Prominent in their Lives
- The number 23 is versatile and mutable, able to bend and mold to the demands of others fairly easily. However, when it comes to an intellectual debate of some sort, she will usually consider herself superior on nearly every topic she has gathered information on; she should develop patience to help in allowing others to properly explain their perspective before making the assumption that her viewpoint makes for the soundest argument.
- People with 23 popping up in their lives (or born on the twenty-third of a month) tend to be far more concerned with the spiritual than the material. They are imaginative, original, and practically fearless, especially in regard to their thoughts. They are enthusiastic and easily excited about things which are new to them.
- The number 23 denotes one who is both emotional and spiritual. People with 23s are generally good at communicating with a wide array of people and are usually well-liked. They have deep feelings, care greatly for mankind, and have a talent for looking into people’s souls.
- Negatively speaking, 23s can be very dominating if they allow their desires to run away with them. This is mainly because they confuse domination with strength. They tend to be very curious and quick-to-move, so responsibilities may fall by the wayside from time to time. These people must learn to focus their energy to accomplish a goal (or series of goals as the case may be).
The number 23 is a number that blends of the desires for knowledge, creativity, and diplomacy.
Those with the number 23 in their numerology charts (particularly the birth day number), are people who need change and variety to be fully satisfied.
These people should aim to use their caringly observant nature to feed their creativity so they can accomplish great things and inspire others to do so as well.
