Searches for numerology - the belief that certain numbers are symbolic or connected to events - have hit a 12-year high. 

It seems that during lockdown we've been trying to find meaning in what has been an unsettling year. Sceptics might question exactly what numerology numbers mean and if numerology is real. Yet many of us have experienced the feeling where the same number seems to crop up again and again. 

Now mindset coach and numerology expert Ask Harriette might just have the answers we’re looking for. 

Teaming up with Tic Watches, she has revealed exactly what it means if you keep seeing certain digits over and over again when you look at the time. 

Could you be in for some good fortune in 2020 after all?

11:11 - in alignment

According to Ask Harriette: “The number one indicates that you are manifesting with more power and speed than normal. It’s important that you keep your thoughts focused on your desires and don’t let your mind wander into negatives.

11:11 is the seat of all creation and means that we are in alignment with our soul. If you keep seeing this time, it means you are typically on the brink of an awakening or evolution. 

It’s a good thing!

12:22 - be wary

The number two is supposed to be connected to relationships and could even signal some form of test.

Ask Harriette says: “If you see a time with recurring twos, you need to be more conscious of the relationships and partnerships in your life. Use your intuition and insight to navigate them for the greatest good.”

14:44 - pursue your dreams

If the number four keeps jumping out at you when you’re checking your watch, it could mean it’s time to pursue your passion.

Ask Harriette reveals: “The number four has a driving energy which should give us the extra push we need to really put our dreams into action. If you see 14:44, listen to your intuition and pursue your goals and aspirations.”

18:18 - good times are coming

Number eight has long held positive associations across the world, particularly in China where it is regarded as lucky. 

Ask Harriette says: “Eights are a sure sign that abundance is on the way. Keep your thoughts positive. Seeing 18:18 or similar times is an invitation to step into your personal power.”

“Have faith in your own abilities and use them for the greatest good.”

19:19 - end of a chapter

In stark contrast, the number nine has mixed meanings. Some are definitely more positive than others.

Ask Harriette explains: “Seeing nines in the time is a nod from the universe that a chapter is coming to a close. This could be a phase, a situation, a relationship or a problem - something in your life is ending.

“This does not have to be interpreted as a negative though, as all endings also mark the start of new beginnings.”
