Numerology number 11 is the first of the Master numbers. A Master number is a strong number with a powerful vibration.
There are four main components of a numerology forecast. They are your Life Path, Expression, Soul Urge and Karmic numbers. Any of these can be a Master number.
A little context:
Master numbers are so powerful because they do not get “reduced” like the cardinal numbers 1-9. (More on this later.)
They are like a strong French roast coffee, while the other numbers are more of a “morning blend”… still AMAZING, but not quite as bold.

Your challenge as an 11
As a numerology number 11, you tend to be all over the place. Thus, the challenge of your life will be to find balance in all that you do.
Here’s why this can be a struggle:
The numerology number 11 is a blend of the numerology numbers 1 and 2, but stronger. In other words, it gets its “roots” from the numbers 1 and 2, much in the same way a child gets its traits from his parents.
The need for balance is due to those root numbers being complete opposites, Take a look:
Number 1 Energy
An intense, male warrior energy which is very focused on the self (drive, ambition). Master number 11 has the power of the number 1 times two. Yep, holy smokes!
Number 2 Energy
A softer, feminine energy which is very focused on the non-self (putting others first, etc.) and is okay with staying in the background.
Note: Even though we don’t reduce Master numbers in numerology, if we did reduce an 11, it would look like this: 1+1=2. So that’s where that “2” energy comes from.
If you think your Master number is 11, confirm it using this tool:
As a Master number 11, you may feel torn between the external (non-self) and internal (self).
This is because your “foundation” numbers 1 and 2 (the Mama and Papa numbers) are complete opposites… and therein lies the feeling of being unbalanced.

Numerology Number 11 Traits
The numerology number 11 is the most intuitive of all the numbers and it’s easy for 11’s to “get their psychic on.”
This number also symbolizes the potential to reach the highest spiritual insights.
11’s are empathic and sensitive to the vibrations in their environment, specifically the energy of other people.
Also, 11’s are very charismatic. Because of this, and your keen sense of intuition, people flock to you if you’re an 11.
It can be tough for a numerology number 11. Everyone loves you and wants to be around you, but deep down, you just wanna be left alone. You’re a true introvert.
You need plenty of time to dream and think about how you can manifest those dreams into reality.
You’re like that statue, “The Thinker”… and some of your favorite subjects are metaphysics and religion.
You are always thinking, and people wish they could understand what is going on in your head. (Spoiler alert: they can’t.)
It’s not unusual for an 11 to dip their toes into different religious and spiritual cultures.
11’s tend to take “a little of this” and “a little of that” from different belief systems and throw out the rest. They sort of come up with their OWN belief system… one that makes them feel most connected to a Divine purpose.
Sure, you’re considered eclectic, but who cares? You’re willing to test out all sorts of esoteric spiritual systems to see how they work.
You are a pretty darn fascinating individual with lots and lots to teach people :)
