Have you ever checked your phone only to see the time displayed as 11:11? You might have also ordered a $2.22 cup of coffee after realising your favourite song is two minutes and twenty-two seconds long. There are no coincidences in the metaphysical worlds where practitioners like myself work; in fact, I came up with the acronym for this concept, TANC, back in 2019 and it’s since taken on some significance in my work. These are known as angel numbers. The ideal illustration of the TANC phenomena is the numerology of angels. Angel number references are prevalent on Instagram and Witchtok (and Astrologytok and Manifestationtok, for that matter). So what are they saying? What do they say? And how might we cooperate with them? Let’s begin now!
Why Do Angel Numbers Exist?
Number sequences (often three or four numbers) that feature repetition or patterns, such as 111 or 4444, are known as angel numbers in numerology (such as 321 or 8787). These numerals typically catch our attention and elicit a sensation of amazement, even if only briefly, even though they may appear in the most commonplace situations.
But an extension of its symbolism is what makes these sequences so captivating to us: These numbers are thought to be guidance, wisdom, and understanding messages from the spiritual realm.
Angel numbers, whether you attribute them to angels, guides, ancestors, spirits, or simply a higher state of your own consciousness, can reassure you that you are on the right path, offer priceless insight into a challenging situation, or even reveal the mysterious, deep meaning behind recurrent themes you encounter throughout your life.
If you can believe it, integer repetition has been important and powerful for hundreds of years. Brilliant in mathematics, Pythagoras was an ancient Greek philosopher who also held the view that reality is a tangible manifestation of the energy vibration of numbers.
Pythagoras also developed novel quantitative solutions. In the early 2000s, a writer by the name of Doreen Virtue released hundreds of books on “angel numbers,” coining the term and delving into the special, mystical meanings encoded in number sequences.
And this idea has swept the metaphysical community off its feet over the last 20 years. Angel numbers have left a profound imprint on our psyche, whether you think that angels are communicating with you in a highly particular way or that your subconscious is confirming your consciousness.
How Unique Are Angel Numbers?
The fact that angel numbers are unrelated to your date of birth is one aspect in which they differ from other esoteric rituals. Angel Numbers aren’t based on your day, hour, or place of birth like zodiac signs, astrology birth charts, or even how many digits make up your life path in numerology.
Angel numbers don’t reveal your identity, but rather the ways in which you’re navigating the world, unlike zodiac sign personality qualities, which reveal your loves, dislikes, interests, and preferences. The fact that angel numbers are incredibly flexible is another crucial aspect of them: You might experience an angel number only once, or you might experience it often over a long period of time.
It doesn’t matter how you come across this magical characteristic; a long-term relationship isn’t more significant than a single observation. The most important thing is that you’re paying attention.
Of course, numerology is also a subjective field, just like astrology, tarot, palm reading, and other esoteric practices. Being a metaphysical practitioner in this time emphasises agency, free will, and autonomy, which is one of my favourite aspects of the metaphysical tradition. Resources shouldn’t be prescriptive; rather, they should provide context; the more you study, the more at ease you become developing your own thoughts, impressions, and interpretations.
Don’t be scared to delve into your individual truths as you strengthen your relationship with spirituality. The way you comprehend and experience mysticism is wholly unique to your personal reality.
Where Do Angel Numbers Come From?
Angel numbers frequently turn up in unexpected places, which contributes to their allure. Clocks, timestamps, and alarms all display angel numbers. Addresses, phone numbers, and license plates all contain them. Angel numbers can even appear on invoices, price tags, and trip plans.
This could be explained by a frequency illusion, or you could think of TANC: Because the spiritual realm wants to gently remind you that you’re going through something more than any ordinary situation could possibly communicate, angel numbers frequently show up in unexpected places.
You have an assignment. There is a reason. Furthermore, the presence of an angel number might seem like a loving hug, particularly when the path ahead seems hazy and uncharted.
The apparition of angel numbers is essentially saying, “You’re doing wonderful, honey,” to paraphrase Kris Jenner (who may or may not be the guardian angel of Calabasas, California).
What Do Angel Numbers Represent?
Applying angel numbers to your life might vary depending on the individual, just as their meanings can. In order to determine whether the numbers have deeper, more individualized meanings, Wilder advises meditating or entering a quiet state of mind.
But you can use these definitions as a general reference:
Meaning of 000
000 Meaning Awaiting Opportunity Stone says, “Your angels have unlimited power to help you.” There are upcoming opportunities.
Set yourself apart. You are prepared to respond to and interact with the outside world, says Wilder. “Don’t hesitate; go share, teach, and impart your knowledge. Believe trust your gut.
Get on more solid ground. There is an imbalance in your life, Rose says. Think over your plans and priorities again.
Discover your potential. Stone adds, “Your magic is developing.” Find your life’s higher purpose by digging deep.

Put an end to it. According to Wilder, “You signed up for this specific challenge [and] you have what it takes and will make it through.” Focus on your support systems, lay a solid foundation, and let the ride take you.
Meaning of 555
It is the season of change. Stone admits that “change is coming.” You merely need to do the next steps as a new, better route is emerging.
Meaning Of 666
Take a fresh look at things. Change your perspective to manage unfavorable ideas and bring tranquility into your life, advises Stone.
777 Energy Meaning Things are changing. A spiritual realignment is set to take place, according to Stone. “Unleash the abilities that nature has given you.”
The lesson here is one of responsibility and balance, says Wilder. We are either able to let go of the duties that aren’t ours to handle, or we are almost perfectly balanced. Consider where you might be stepping forward when you ought to be moving aside.
So that you can make way for the new, let go of the old. “A chapter in your life is closing and opening a new one,” Stone says.
