The Meaning of Number 30
In Numerology we study the secret power that is hidden within the numbers that we encounter in our experience. Numbers do not just occur in physics papers and math tests. They form an integral part of human experience.
Numbers like 30 have special significance and seem to occur just about everywhere. Many TV shows are 30 minutes long, commercials on both TV and radio are 30 seconds long and driving through most cities you will find the speed limit set at 30 mph.
When we reach the age of 30, most of us feel it to be a particular milestone in our experience. Albert Camus, in The Myth of Sisyphus, writes that the age of 30 is when the modern person comes to understand the meaning of time. The number 30 seems to be intimately connected with our experience of time, duration and completion.
Numerology Meaning of Number 30
In Numerology we evaluate multi-digit numbers like 30 by reducing them to a single digit root number. The root numbers from 0-9 each have a distinct vibrational essence that functions like a set of personality traits that accompany a number wherever they appear. By analyzing these essences and how they combine to form larger numbers, we can see meaningful patterns emerge in our lives that will help us achieve our personal goals and experience a sense of meaning and fulfillment.
To reduce the number 30 to its root, we add the digits together until we come to a single digit total. The number 30 reduces to root number 3. The vibrational essence of 3 is all about creativity, self expression and completion. In the number 30 there is no other number competing with the 3 energy, which means that this creative energy comes through very clearly.
Things Always Come in Threes
Anyone who has ever knocked on a door knows how difficult it is to stop at knock number 2. This is because things seem to always come in 3’s. In philosophy, for instance, Hegel showed how any two terms will automatically produce a third. This is called the Hegelian Dialectic in which putting forth a thesis not only produces the antithesis, but also the synthesis as well.
In Christianity we have the Trinity (Father, Son and Holy Spirit), in Freudian psychology we have Ego, Id and Superego and in most systems of spirituality we view the total person as being made up of body, mind and spirit. In the Garden of Eden 1st there was Adam, 2nd there was Eve and from their union arose all of Humanity.
The Creative and Symbolic Essence of 30/3
In the Major Arcana of the Tarot, the 3rd card is the Empress which is the card of fertility, fecundity and creativity. She comes after The Magician, whose creativity is powerful but put into the service of the Ego, and the High Priestess whose creativity is secretive and introspective. The Empress completes the primordial triad of creativity in the form of open, free expression.
In mathematics, especially geometry, the numbers 3 and 30 play important roles. Triangles have three sides and the special ratios inherent in triangles is what makes land surveying possible. Before anyone can come and build on land, surveyors come and measure the land through a system called triangulation, which is a system of laying imaginary right triangles over a plot of land and calculating according to their inherent rations, all of which are based on 3 and 30.
The number 3 is also vitally important in music and art. In music, the Viennese Waltz is always written in a 3 beat per measure time signature, and 3 note patterns called triads form the harmonic backbone of all music since Bach. There are also 30 total major and minor keys in Western tonal music.
In art, color theory is based on the 3 primary colors. Whether your taste in art is realistic or abstract, you cannot escape the functioning of the energy 3 that is the root of the number 30.
Number 30 as Your Birth Number
The number 30 is your birth number if you were born on the 30th of any month. The energy of 30/3 in your Numerology chart is likely to bring a sense of unbridled creativity to your life. You will always want to be involved in creative activities that involve meeting people and having fun.
Those with a 30/3 energy in their chart are gregarious and generally attractive. They make friends easily and find lovers very easily. The number 3 is associated with the sign of Gemini in Astrology and the Empress card in the Tarot is associated with the planet Venus. This energy makes it hard for people living with the 30/3 energy in their chart to stay faithful to just one mate.
Number 30/3 in Terms of Karma and Destiny
When the number 30/3 is associated with Karma and Destiny it generally indicates a past life in which you were thwarted creatively in some way. As a reward for your devotion to a noble person, government or family member in that previously life, the Angels or Ascended Masters have given you an incredible gift of creative energy and charisma in this life.
The destiny of someone with the number 30/3 in their chart is always joyous, creative and radiant, but it is not always materially rich. The energy of 30/3 will provide you with the ability to create and complete many wonderful things, but they may not all be commercially viable. Just know that your purpose is to put those creative energies to work in whatever capacity is available to you.
