Characteristics of a 2
A 2 at Work

- Legal or business mediator

A 2 in Relationships
People may perceive you as a figure on bended knee, head bowed in reverence. Where a 1 is proud and independent, you are more humble. Although they should not be fooled by your humility, you have incredible strength. It’s found in patience rather than bravado and show. You are a valuable ally because you are loyal. Also, you understand other people and how to use them to bring out the best outcome, whatever the situation. You can outwit people when they are not paying attention and you’re not easily pushed you around.
People should observe 2s carefully! You can be charming and make people believe that they came up with an idea or guided the outcome you wanted all along. Others may have never seen your influence because you don’t demand attention. You have a gift for words and bring great conversations to gatherings because of your tasteful humor, as well as the ability to talk about many topics because you are often fascinated by the unknown. Your energy is lighthearted and graceful; sharp, but never coarse and abrasive.
Challenges for a 2
At this point, you might sound like a goody-two-shoes. Although, you should work on curbing your needy impulses. You love compliments, and when people stroke your ego. You can become quite upset, jealous, and spiteful; you may throw a temper tantrum as well as anyone when you feel you’re being wronged, ignored, or your needs aren’t being met.
You need to be mindful that your words can cut people to the bone and cause a lot of pain. Although you won’t hold a grudge for long. The easiest way for others to coax you out of a bad mood after a tense situation is to give you some space until things have calmed down a bit – and when you reappear they need to pay some quality attention to you and bring gifts to pay their penance. The secret to handling you is to pamper you and cater to your needs. It’s not hard to keep you happy.
You’re diplomatic and you crave love, beauty, and harmonious surroundings. You’re quite a social person and require regular interaction with other people to feel alive and energized. Partnerships are important to you, and you may quickly become uninterested when doing a solo activity. You should try not to get too fixated on finding a soul mate. Cultivate independence and it will make you an incredibly interesting and self-sufficient person that will attract a partner without so much worry and effort.
Materialism could have been more important to you than necessary in the past. There are two ways of interpreting this: either you had too much and took it for granted, or you didn’t have enough, and it made you hard and bitter. Consumerism and material comforts didn’t nourish your soul. In this lifetime, you’re here to understand that you have to be responsible with your income and possessions, but they’re not everything. Your actions and what you are able to share, are more important than what you can acquire.
If you have a heart’s desire number of 2, your life has a mission and purpose. You’ll know what you want, and you’ll have a burning desire to make it happen. It’s easy for you to fall in love – with life, with people, and even with ideas. It’s also easy for you to change your mind. Some people may read this as fickle, but you’re just flexible. You’ve got a good intuition and need to learn to trust it. It will lead you to your long-term success.
You’re open and people see you as warm and welcoming. It’s easy for you to make friends and charm people because you’re gentle and sincere. You still have the fire in your belly, burning under the surface. People who are sexually attracted to you will sense it and want to unleash it. You try to stay in the background for the most part, and it might make you appear aloof and vulnerable until people get to know you better.
This hidden passion number reveals that you’re sensitive to others and have above average intuition. You don’t simply listen to others, you really feel what they’re saying. It’s easy for you to be kind and compassionate. You want to solve the world’s problems and create peace and tranquillity with your life, no matter your surroundings. People can rely on you. You’re very observant, but you need to make sure you don’t get moody or resentful when things don’t go your way.
After the new beginnings of the past year, this is a year when you need to pause and determine if everything you started are decisions you want to continue. It’s not the time for rushing ahead, making leaps of progress or starting anything long-term. Use it to strengthen and appreciate what you have, and that goes for relationships as well as opportunities and personal gain. Learn cooperation, and let go of what’s standing in your way of happiness.
