The number 22 as birth day number

In Chaldean numerology, the day you are born in the month is of particular importance as it profoundly influences your personality. The following explains how this number will affect you if you are born on the 22nd and which themes might be present in your life.

22 gives you the ability to build new things from the ground up and to think inside AND outside the box.

The 22 aspect of number 4 consists of two number 2s, making it a very gentle and empathic number willing to please and to make other people happy. 22 is the most gentle and soft number 4 as opposed to other 4s such as the 13 or the 31 who can frighten other people with their uniqueness and potentially odd behavior.

The Tarot card for number 22 is called “The Fool.” The card symbolizes naivety and childishness. It signifies new ways of doing things and that you are ready to jump out into the void to try new things or start new projects.

The fool always sees the good in others and is a very loveable person. You want a family, social life, and to build things in life. In the Pythagorean tradition, the number 22 is called the “builder” and represents the most practical and earthbound 4 archetype.

As the card suggests, there is a great amount of naivety in the archetype where you fool yourself, believing that everything is better than they are. The fool is walking over the edge of the cliff, seemingly utterly oblivious to what you’re doing. You do not discriminate what really is there and what you HOPE is there – so you live in a world of illusions and dreams. You can quickly be disappointed and hurt because of this. You have a significant need for security because it can be difficult for you to see which dream you should go for.

It is like wearing pink glasses – it can be difficult for you to see the world clearly and you prefer to look at everything in a “pink light” – where everybody is sweet, and everything is okay and where you don’t break any bones by jumping off cliffs.

CHEIRO and other sources

Cheiro, the famous Chaldean numerologist, writes: ”This number is symbolized by a good man blinded by the folly of others with a knapsack on his back full of arrows. It is a warning number of illusion and delusion, a good person who lives in a fool’s paradise. It gives a tendency of doing the wrong things on at the wrong times, which will give even more tears and annoyances.”

Vedic numerology writes that the number is highly emotional by nature, and there is a risk of gambling and indulging in intoxicants.

There can be a tendency in 22 to become a criminal, not because you want, or because you are an evil person – simply because you might oversee the dangers in certain ventures or procrastinate with unpleasant tasks as doing the accounting or administration properly. So you potentially wind up in troublesome situations because you didn’t see clearly, and you didn’t do what had to be done.

Biggest emotional issue to greatest liberation

In an unbalanced chart, the number 22 can give a tendency for naivety and that you are exploited or taken advantage of by other people with less honorable intentions.

The challenge for 22 is to wake up and become a knower of people and their intentions. When this skill becomes a part of you, it also becomes much easier for you to do what you were put here to do – to build new buildings, systems, structures, and philosophies that will help the world and make it a better place.

The 22 in balance is:

  • Seeing the good in all (for good and for bad!)
  • Gentle, empathic, loyal, very lovabable and has a good social life
  • A builder - creates a whole empire from the ground up
  • Trusting and nurturing people to create a common project
  • Child like and open - always ready to jump into new ventures

The 22 unbalanced is

  • Mislead and cheated by others and realizes it too late
  • Overly sweet and friendly to get love and attention
  • Experiencing many disappointments and let downs by others
  • Extremely naive and gullible - trusting all the wrong people
  • Living in a world of illusions ungrounded in reality

The number 22 is a master number

The number 22 is a master number meaning that the first digit is the same as the last digit. This means that the "inner lessons" (dictated by the inner digit) are the same as the "outer lessons" (dictated by the outer digit). So how we manage our inner life is reflected in the outer life.


Master numbers in our charts are the carriers of "karma" - if you didn't understand the lessons represented by a certain number in your previous incarnations, you get double up in this life - either in your birthday numbers or in your names. So having master numbers can feel "heavy" or "difficult."

But this karma can also be burned quickly if you start performing the right actions. Since the inner and outer digits are the same, there is a tendency that whatever you think becomes a reality - which is bad news if your inner world is full of pessimism and dark thoughts. But once you start aligning your inner world with the power of the number in its balanced form, the opposite also holds - you will begin manifesting a life of beauty and abundance.

Master your thoughts

One of the first lessons, when you have a master number in your charts (for example, a birthday number or essence number), is that you have to start mastering your thoughts and what vibrational frequencies you send into the world. What you think and focus upon should revolve around the balanced aspects of the inner digit (in this case, the number 2) and should be expressed out in the world through the digit sum of the number - in this case, 4.

The lessons of 22

Since this is the number 22, you will do best by expressing your emotions and inner longing (symbolized by number 2) in the outer world through the number 4 - which stands for making things that are "solid" in the physical world. For this reason, the number 22 is called "The master builder."

There is an inner longing in the number 22 for close emotional connection with others. So the natural focus is on gaining the love and respect of others, but this will, unfortunately, lead to pleaser tendencies and naivety because you so much want others' affection that you fail to see their sinister or ulterior motives.

When you instead set your focus on building tangible things in the world, you will, in an interesting way, also experience how you gain a deep satisfaction in life that fills up your emotional body and longing.

22 is under the influence of URANUS

Uranus is the coldest planet in our solar system and has a temperature of about -220 degrees centigrade. There are large cloud formations in the atmosphere, created by water in the lowest clouds and methane in the upper cloud cover. The planet itself is made up of ice and rocks. The clouds give a cloudy light blue impenetrable look. Much like the planet itself, Uranus people are mysterious, profound and don't reveal much about themselves at first glance.

Uranus is the quietest of all planets. In contrast to this, Jupiter makes a lot of electromagnetic noise as you approach it.

Uranus has large, vertical rings around it. Where Saturn's rings are horizontal, Uranus' rings are vertical. This symbolizes an opposition between the two planets.

The axis of Uranus is tilted almost 90 degrees. This makes Uranus "roll" along its axis, while the other planets are like spinning tops on their trajectories. This makes Uranus unique among all the worlds. In Uranus people, this translates to them doing and saying the opposite of what everyone else is saying. There is both an excentric and contrarian streak.

It takes Uranus a full 84 years to orbit the sun, and the eccentric axis of rotation means that while one hemisphere is bathed in light, the other is in constant darkness - for an entire season. This gives very long summers and winters. The transition between summer and winter happens very quickly on Uranus, symbolizing upheavals, and violent transformations. That is why Uranus represents changes that occur very suddenly, and that changes a person, a generation, or the whole world.

The long winter represents that Uranus energy goes in-depth. It is not fast and flighty but thorough and profound.

The north and south poles are not fixed, which means that Uranus does not stand firm on how things are, and the truth is perceived as relative and can be continually challenged.
