The Meaning of Number 28
To understand the numerological meaning of a number like 28, first we have to break it down to its constituent parts.
In Numerology it is understood that numbers have character traits or distinct personalities that can influence your life when they appear in your Numerology chart, or even if they simply appear in your every day experience.
The impact that a number has on your life will depend on its position in your chart. A number like 28 is most likely to appear in your chart as a birth number, which means that it can exert an influence over just about any aspect of your life.
The Numerological Meaning of Number 28
In Numerology it is understood that multi-digit numbers receive their essence from the vibrations of the root numbers that influence them. To find the main root number that influences number 28, we have to reduce it to a single digit number by adding up its individual digits like this:
2 + 8 = 10
1 + 0 = 1
If you were born on the 28th of any month your birth number would be 28, which is commonly reduced to 1 as illustrated above. This means that anyone who has the birth number 28 is actually on the 1 life path.
This will give them a number of personality traits that will be either strengthened or reduced depending on the other numbers that appear in their Numerology chart.
Those who have the number 28 in their chart are likely to be independent, self sufficient, original and live with a strong sense of self-determination. 28/1 is a number of leadership and originality, that is also capable of teamwork and diplomacy.
The best careers for someone with this essence in their chart would be in business. Working as a business manager or building a new business from the ground up — either is possible for someone with the energy of 28/1 in their chart.
The Deep Essence of Number 28
Along with the root number of 1 defining number 28 in terms of individuality and leadership characteristics, the 2 and 8 that make up the original number also have influential characteristics as well.
If we are to better understand how the number 28 functions in our Numerology chart, we will need to take a close look at the meanings of numbers 2 and 8 as well.
The number 2 is the number of cooperation, partnership and teamwork. Those who have this energy in their Numerology chart make excellent team members and business associates.
They are also passive and introspective and are not usually effective when forced into leadership positions.
The number 8, on the other hand is less introspective and more materialistic. Those who are rich with 8 energy in their birth chart are likely to be capable of building great things, whether those are physical buildings or huge organizations.
Symbolic Meaning of Number 28
In the I Ching, the 28th kua is translated as Excess and it tells of a time or situation in which there may be too much of a particular thing. The symbol of this kua is a forest submerged in water. A forest needs water to grow, but too much water and it will cease to grow.
When the number 28 occurs symbolically or organically in our experience, it could indicate that we are in an unbalanced situation in which there is an excess of some kind.
The number 28 may come up in any number of ways, as divination as in the case of the I Ching, as a date, a time (28 past the hour), addresses, room numbers, amounts of money or some other measurable quantity.
Often, numbers occurring in our experience seem to appear there at random. However, it is possible that their appearance can be read as messages from spirit.
When you notice the number 28 occurring in your experience again and again, it could be a sign for you to seek balance in your affairs. It may be a sign that you are acting in a way that is too ego-oriented or that you have been lacking humility.
Seeking Balance With 28 in Your Chart
Number 28 is prone to produce unbalanced states and situations. This is primarily due to the fact that the 1 and 8 roots that inform it are highly materialistic numbers, while the 2 is spiritual, passive and introspective.
The result is often someone who has the personality traits required to be a leader, but may lack the self-confidence to do so.
The best way to activate the 1 energy inherent in number 28 is to practice positive thinking. Practicing positive thinking can activate high frequency attractor energies that can bring your desires within reach.
The challenge of number 28 is avoiding highly egotistical states. Both 1’s and 8’s can become rather self centered as they see their talents find recognition in real world projects.
The best way to stay balanced is to practice forms of meditation in which you come to recognize a larger and more balanced perspective. Practicing gratitude and compassion will help those who are highly influenced by the energy of 28/1 to lead a balanced and highly successful life.
