22 is the second of the three Master Numbers. Where 22 appears in your reading, it's usually not reduced down to a single digit; it's read as it's own number in its own right. The name 'Master Number' may be a bit misleading, for it's not making you a master of anything or elevating your incarnation higher than anyone else. It's showing you where you've got above average work to do in this lifetime, and where you might find things harder to 'master' than others.
22 is a blend of 2 and 4. It has the hopes and aspirations of 2, and the determination and pragmatic energy of 4. This is the number of all that is good, all that is worth doing and worth having. It doesn't launch into things without properly preparing. It lays foundations for what it wants to achieve. There's purpose and confidence and plain old common sense here.
This number also takes things way too seriously, and part of its purpose is to show you where you need to lighten up. You can't alienate others by being so focused on making your dreams a reality. 22 brings the capacity for great change and great success, but if you're unaware of this, or unwilling to roll up your sleeves and get stuck in, you'll not accomplish very much. Likewise, if you apply the 'builder' aspect of 22 and try to do too much, you'll just leave a trail of broken dreams behind you.
Look closely where 22 appears in your numerology reading. It's message is always the same; you've got great potential, so lighten up and get on with it. Get to know yourself-really see who you are, and what you were meant to do with your life. 22 is here to awaken you to your calling, and to remind you that you've got what it takes to be a great success. You just have to apply yourself.
