Society’s fascination with angel numbers have reached the point where people are finding meaning in each and every digit. That said, according to numerologist Joy Woodward, the author of A Beginner’s Guide to Numerology, true angel numbers are repeating digits, most often in groups of three or four. These numbers offer guidance and messages from the Divine,” she says. “When they appear, they are asking you to pay attention, offering support or guidance.”

With that in mind, we’re taking a deep dive into numeral sequences and today’s lucky number is 222. Keep reading to learn what it means and what to do if you see it everywhere you go.

What is the meaning of angel number 222?

“In numerology, the number two represents partnerships, balance, harmony, and relations,” says numerologist, astrologist, and tarot reader Vannessa Williams, of Beyond Your Sun Sign. When that number is tripled, you get the angel number 222, which is a symbol of balance—with others and with yourself, and with all your responsibilities.

It’s a sign that you need to step back and reevaluate how the partnerships in your life are affecting your overall emotional well-being. Do you feel balanced? Do you notice an imbalance? Are you overextending yourself? Could you be doing more to achieve interpersonal work goals? Ask yourself these questions and take note of how you answer because at the end of the day, the angel number 222 is all about coming back into alignment. It can be a recognition that you’re aligned with the people and projects in your life and are on the right path, or it can be a sign that something’s out of sync and it’s time to prioritize feeling aligned.

“Spiritually, the angel number 222 is a reminder that although our responsibilities are important it is not our duty to maintain harmony for everyone,” Williams adds. “The angel number 222 sees how much you have been trying to balance it all and wants to reward your efforts with recognition.” (Love the meaning of angel number 222 and the idea of angel numbers as a whole?

What is the significance of the date 2/22?

Dates with repeating numbers happen every month so you might not think there’s anything special about them. In reality, those dates are just another form of angel numbers, meaning they harness the same energy and can be the perfect opportunity to harness (or be reminded of) the characteristics of the number.

Take February 22 (2/22), for example. “On this day we will feel a collective inspiration to balance out our duties and responsibilities with others,” Williams says. “This balance will be nurturing and will create harmony within our relationships.”
