We hear so much about 11:11 (or 11/11) and the lucky meaning behind it that it's easy to find yourself looking out for it or even to feel a jolt of positivity upon spotting repeating 1s on a clock or receipt. But what if I told you that all repeating numbers have meaning—and we’ve simply been overlooking other digits? That’s the idea behind angel numbers, or recurring numbers bound with spiritual significance.

“Angels speak to us in synchronistic ways, which basically means that we will see something over and over again, so much so that it goes beyond mere coincidence,” celebrity aura reader, psychic medium, and spirit guide Megan Michaela Firester, who goes by Mystic Michaela, previously told Well+Good. “One of these ways is through numbers.”

With this in mind, it's worth taking a step back from 11:11 for a moment to focus on what you could call its little sister, angel number 1010. Ahead, uncover the meaning of the quadruple numeral, along with what to do if you keep seeing it.

What is the meaning of angel number 1010?

Typically, angel numbers are reduced to a single digit (by adding up their individual digits until you get to just one number), and that number’s numerological meaning is then amplified when in sequence. For example, the number eight, in numerology, is a digit of abundance and manifestation; when it’s tripled, as in 888, the number becomes a powerful reminder to be grateful for what you have while manifesting what you want.

In the case of angel number 1010, you may think to reduce the number down to 10, however, in the world of numerology, base numbers only go up to nine. Because of this, numerologist, astrologist, and tarot reader Vannessa Williams, says that angel number 1010 actually boils down to the number one, which is then mirrored. “The number one in numerology represents new beginnings, leadership, and independence,” she says.

Astrologist, stylist, and writer Jacquelyn Tierney says that 1010 is urging you to choose your own path. “The symbol of one is a straight line, whether that be horizontal or vertical, and that line points clearly in a direction,” she explains. “It is time to choose a direction when the numbers 1 and/or 10 appear.”

By a similar token, numerologist Joy Woodward, author of A Beginner’s Guide to Numerology, says that angel number 1010 is the “new” 1111. “The cipher, or 0, amplifies the 1, representing continued spiritual awakening and development of intuition,” she explains.

What to do if you see angel number 1010

Another way to look at angel number 1010? It’s a mirrored number, which means that it’s a reminder that in order to start something new, we need to reflect on our past beginnings, according to Williams. “If there is any lingering negative energy attached to a prior beginning, that should be cleared before starting something new,” she says. Here’s where learning how to get rid of bad vibes by, say, doing a self-guided energy cleanse can come in handy.

When interpreting angel number 1010 as a mirrored number, Tierney reminds us that the number 10 encompasses the energetic vibration of “success, public reputation, legacy, group leadership, authority, outward achievement, power, responsibility, security, and stability.”

With this in mind, she says that seeing the repeating digit is significant because it’s a sign to become the leader of your life. “Is it time to make decisions for what you want? Yes,” she emphasizes. “Manifest with great power; the wheel of fortune is spinning in your favor. …just remember to choose your direction wisely, as the number one indicates a new beginning of a 9-year cycle. How we set ourselves up under the vibration of one can impact the next nine years.”

How to harness the energy of angel number 1010

Since angel number 1010 is all about reflection, independence, and leaning into new beginnings as a way of leading the life you’ve always dreamt of, there are a few things you can do to really embrace its energy.

For starters, you can start journaling. Reflecting in written form is one of the best ways to express ourselves, particularly because it doesn’t require sharing your thoughts (unless, of course, you want to). For instance, you could write in a journal, or you could write a reflective letter addressing lingering negative energy from past beginnings, even if you never intend to send it. (Need a pretty journal to jot down your thoughts? The Papier Is For… Notebook ($36) is beautifully designed and allows you to select any letter in the alphabet to personalize yours. If you’re in the market for stationery, treat yourself a Notecard Set (starting at $31) from the brand.

Another way to harness the energy of angel number 1010 is by manifesting. To embrace new beginnings and make the most of them, consider checking out Roxie Nafousi’s book Manifest: 7 Steps to Living Your Best Life for guidance on how to navigate new beginnings and become the fearless leader of your life. (Need proof? The book—and Nafousi’s teachings—are earning high praise on TikTok, with over two million views and counting.)

And remember: Repeating numbers in dates are especially significant so if you’re looking to really tap into the power of angel number 1010, be sure to think ahead to make October 10 a major moment of manifestation. This could mean making time to take your next big step into a leadership role, or it could serve as the perfect day to honor all the hard work you’ve put in while harnessing the number.
