The Significance of the Number 12

12 is Not Just a Number

What is the significance of the number 12 and why does it appear so often? The number 12 is the number of cosmic order. We can find this mystical number hidden in the most sacred spaces of life. For example, there are 12 months in a year, 12 signs of the Western zodiac, 12 Chinese astrology animals (12 years apart), 12 disciples in the New Testament, 12 inches in a foot and December is the twelfth month.

Masculine and Feminine

The number 12 is the highest vibration of the 3-dimensional world. It is where the purest masculine energy (represented by the number one) and the purest female energy (represented by the number two) come together to create all that is and all that will ever be.

Space and Time

12 is the number of space and time—a significance of the number 12. That’s why these two numbers (1+2) when added come to be the number 3 which represents the third dimension plane in which we exist. Time is even measured by two groups of 12 hours. The number 12 also encompasses the whole trinity of father ( number 1), mother (number 2), and son (number 3), a philosophy that lives in many cultures. The reason why many cultures believe in the divinity of the number 12 or the Trinity is that it holds the key to the spiritual work that needs to get done in our material lives in order to complete our spiritual duties.

Sacred Geometry

The sacred geometry of the number 12 is what is holding this material world together. Let me explain! In astrology, there are 12 houses in which the planets and the 12 signs travel. These houses represent the karmic cycle of this existence or in tarot, the wheel of fortune. This wheel holds together all aspects of life from identity, money, expression, love, marriage, health, career, spirituality, friendships, children, and family. Now the twelfth house is the last house—the house of subconscious and spirituality. It’s also the one in which the spirit releases all and renounces the desires and possessions that it collected throughout the cycle. Then, the spirit goes back to the source to start again—this twelve karmic cycle.

The Hanged Man

In the tarot, the number 12 in the major arcana is the hanged man, a card of letting go, having emotional release, and accepting what is. The hanged man is a martyr that is pausing to reflect in order to live in the moment, and it’s a very spiritual card just like the twelfth house in astrology.

The Death Card

After 12 comes 13 which has the bad reputation of being an unlucky number and in tarot, it’s the notorious death card. This represents the transformation at the end of a cycle—the death and transformation of this material plane. December, being the twelfth month of the year, represents the winter time in which the sun is in the underworld, only to resurrect at the end of December. The significance of the number 12 is that it’s also a number of completion and perfection.
