As professional intuitive Tanya Carroll Richardson previously explained to mbg, “Angel numbers are a synchronicity, or a meaningful coincidence—divine guidance from angels and the universe,” and when they show up, we’re meant to pay attention.
The meanings of different digits vary and are often related to how big or small the number is. The number 1 (aka the first single digit), for example, typically indicates a beginning, while the number 9 (the last single digit) often relates to endings or finalities.
The key to understanding angel numbers is to get clear on what was happening—or what you were thinking about—when you notice them. As Richardson notes, you might notice the clock at 1:11 as you were thinking about expanding your business, for instance, which would be a positive sign that your angels support that idea.
