The number 1 is the aspiration of humankind, what we hope to achieve. It is everything and all included
into one. It represents God, Human, the Sun and the heart in your physical body. From the 1 all things
begin. It is a masculine number, the aloneness, originality, and positivity. The element is fire and

The Number 1
This number represents that all things are, at their essence, really 'one thing'. There is a single
(one) whole which has created religious and even mystical tradition that identifies unity and singleness with
goodness and anything that deviates from that (diversity and difference) as something bad.

including all other opposites in the universe. Because of this the number 10 was seen as completion and perfection

0 = 1).
The number one is often assoicated with leaders and heros, but the number also holds special
significance symbollically as originality, independence and achievement (especially physically). The early
numerologists all considered this number the first, and therefore the essential beginning of the number series.
