Number 3

Definition of Number 3

3 is one of the first more complex numbers. It takes the independence of 1 and the duality of 2 and blends them into a temperamental energy with a personality all its own. 3 is an enigma; engaging yet demanding, alluring yet challenging, demure yet feisty, friendly yet moody, and kind but with one monster of a temper. 

There's a superficiality around the number 3 that has to be dealt with if you're going to turn its qualities to your advantage. Yes, 3 is outgoing and friendly, but there's usually some hidden agenda underneath the warmth. 3 has the potential to be very self-centered, and to throw an absolute fit if it doesn't get its way, or if things don't go according to plan. Be prepared to ride a roller coaster when 3 is influencing things!

3 is a temptress and a mistress and will have you shirking your responsibilities in favor of something more entertaining if you let it. It will lead you on a wild goose chase through every emotion you can imagine-and maybe a few that take you by surprise, too! It's hard to face challenges and meet your obligations when 3 is influencing things; it would much rather leave the hard stuff for someone else to deal with. 

The lesson that 3 brings to you is that there's a beauty in overcoming these distractions and disciplining this frivolous persuasion in favor of something that has more depth, more meaning. Wherever 3 is strong for you, it's showing you where you have to work on your determination and focus. This may even apply to relationships, too, because even the best connections have their off days, and even the most loyal person has the capacity to be tempted. There's a choice when it comes to 3; indulge, and pay the consequences, or look at the bigger picture, and see long-term gain rather than instant gratification.
