Why You Should Keep an Eye Out for Repeating 'Angel Numbers'

Do you ever feel like a certain string of numbers is following you around?

If you've been coming across repeating numbers, whether it's 111, 444 or 777, you're not alone, and you may want to start paying extra attention to the world around you. In numerology, these are called angel numbers—but what exactly are angel numbers, and what do they mean? Here's what you should know.

What Are Angel Numbers?

In numerology, angel numbers are repeating sequences of numbers that can be interpreted as messages from another plane. Because these numbers tend to show up again and again, many people believe that they're more than sheer coincidence. If that's the case, then these numbers are meaningful, and might even contain helpful guidance that can allow us to see something we're missing, or send us down the right path. Of course, that knowledge isn't all too useful on its own. Keep reading to find out what specific angel numbers mean (more repetitions simply is an amplification of the message), and what you can do with them.



The angel number 111 is a sign that you're doing all of the right things, and that your current course is the true one. Your dreams are becoming reality through your hard work, dedication and positive attitude, and you're not too far from getting everything you've been striving for. Keep on that path and success will follow.

The angel number 222 usually symbolizes the fact that you're headed in the right direction, but it's going to take a bit more effort on your part to make it a reality. Rather than being discouraged by this message, you should use it to propel you to refocus on what's important to you, and analyze the key steps you can take to make it happen. That might be the difference that manifests everything you've been wanting.



333 is an especially auspicious angel number, representing the fact that the forces of the universe have your back.

The angel number 444 can be taken as a sign that you are not alone in your journey. You're supported, whether it's by your closest friends and family, or simply the world at large. If you've been feeling stagnant or stuck wherever you are, don't be afraid to lean on others to get you back where you need to be. That guidance may prove invaluable.



If you're confronted with the angel number 555, prepare for some shifts in the status quo. Things are about to change in some big, and maybe unexpected, ways, but don't let that discourage you. These changes are all for the good, opening up choices that weren't available to you before, so keep an open mind and be ready to accept whatever life throws at you.



666 may seem like a scary angel number, but don't worry if it keeps cropping up in your life. Its repetition simply means that you may have lost sight of your goals and desires, and that it's time to tune back into them. Take some time to reconsider what matters to you and figure out how those things can fit back into your life. Pay attention and you'll see quick improvements.



If you see the angel number 777 and immediately think of good luck and happy outcomes, you're absolutely right. When you see 777, you can expect positive outcomes and seeing the fruits of your labors bring you the results you've been hoping for. Ready for your dreams to come true? This is that time.

The angel number 888 is a symbol that some money is headed your way—and that's pretty much always a very good thing. It signifies financial stability, independence and success, showing that the hard work you've been doing will pay off in more ways than one.



Last but not least, the angel number 999 is another number that tells us to allow change to enter our lives. Perhaps you've had your eyes on a certain goal or priority that doesn't actually suit your true desires or your purpose within the universe. If you're offered new opportunities, consider them carefully instead of denying them outright. Something new, and better, might be headed your way.
