Master Number 22/4 Lifepath Numerology – The Pros and Cons of Being a Master Builder

This post is dedicated to my Master 22/4 Lifepath fans and loved ones. Specific thanks to Dee, who is a 22/4 born on 11.11! To stay in touch, join my facebook page The Numbers Queen and Instagram SarahYip1111

Note: 2020 is a Universal 4 Year of Heart Healing and Perfect Vision and a big turning point for all 22 and 4 lifepaths. Hence the swan image above.  See my 2020 Numerology Forecast for more

Your Lifepath is your life purpose, or spiritual job description while you’re on the planet. It’s a number between 1-9, or 11, 22 or 33 (the latter are called Master Number Lifepaths – some people include 44). Master Numbers bring double work for potentially double the reward/ karmic brownie points. A Master Number Lifepath is like signing on for a PhD in Humanity, or a whistle-stop tour of life on Earth – it can be intense, especially during childhood. I should know, I’m an 11!

We change Lifepaths each lifetime, so it acts as a temporary vehicle for your Soul’s learning. Your Lifepath doesn’t guarantee success – it’s up to you to ‘drive’ it well and stay on track. Your birth and current name/s, pinnacles, challenges and personal years also influence your happiness and success. I cover these in psychic readings as well as numerology workshops in Brisbane and the Gold Coast. Live elsewhere? See my webinars

How do I know if I am a Master Number 22/4 Lifepath?
Your Lifepath is revealed by adding your DOB from left to right. Read more on Lifepaths.  You experience rapid change around your lifepath peak age/ turning point (i.e. 22 years old for Master 22 lifepaths, or 22 and 31 years old for Master 22 lifepath hybrids).

For someone born 2 January 1972, we add 2+1+1+9+7+2 = 22. 2+2 is 4 hence we write this 22/4. To me, 22 looks like swans in love. It’s about long-term relationships and creating grace. Someone with a 22/4 Lifepath has free will to live as a 22 (Master Builder) or a 4 (Builder), which may lead them to having different faces at work and home.

HINT: If you resonate to 22/4 energy, read my guide to 4 lifepaths for many tips, including compatibility etc.

In traditional numerology, your DOB must add to 11, 22 or 33 using at least two of the following methods to be a ‘true’ Master Number Lifepath. I am more lenient than this, for reasons explained below.

1) Adding your DOB from left to right (as above). This is my default method for calculating lifepaths (see Dan Millman’s book The Life You Were Born to Live). If someone’s DOB adds to an 11, 22 or 33 using this technique but not others, I talk to them about master numbers anyway. In many cases, they’ve confirmed my predictions. I believe that in these times of 11:11 Ascension, everyone is being stretched to their potential.

2) Reducing the day, month and year first, before adding them. E.g. 2 January 1972 = (2)+(1)+(1+9+7+2) = 2+1+19 = 22/4. This method reduces the chance you are a Master Number and simplifies your numerology. Not my preference.

3) Adding the sum of your day and month to the year. E.g. (2+1)+(1972) = 1975, which adds across to 22/4. Can be useful for finding ‘hidden’ 22 Lifepaths. E.g. the Dalai Lama born 6 July 1935 is a 31/4 or 22/4, depending on the method. I would read him as a hybrid of both, as he has obvious Master Builder qualities.

As a 29/11 lifepath, I attract many people with 11, 22, 33, 44, 55, 66, 77 and other double numerology. It’s worth noting that, Master Number energy affects everyone, irrespective of their Lifepath.

For example, Master Number 22 can appear in your:
-day of birth (If you’re born on the 22nd, you share traits with 22/4 Lifepaths)
-name/s (e.g. David, Buddha add to 22/4)
-personal years and pinnacles (some people have 22/4 years, when they act like a 22/4 Lifepath. Read more on personal years.)
-address and phone numbers. Read more on addresses.

Wherever 22 appears, is where the Universe wants you to cooperate with others on a grand scale. Even if you’re not a 22 Lifepath, reading this article means you’re probably married, related to, parents or friends with a 22. In my books, there are no coincidences, just keenly observed miracles. You might also see repeating numbers like 222.

Here are the general qualities of 22 Lifepaths (these apply to a different degree if 22 shows up in your name, etc.):

-All Master Number Lifepaths (11, 22, 33, 44) etc. are PSYCHIC whether they know it or not. 2 represents the 2nd/ Sacral Chakra and intuition/ feelings/ clairsentience. With practice, 22’s excel as spiritual teachers and healers due to their persistence and manifestation abilities. They respond well to past or parallel life healing, as holistic medicine works better for them. Read more on past life regression.

-They see 11:11 or repeating numbers such as 11:11, 111, 2:22, 22:22(since it’s their Lifepath), 3:33, 4:44 and so on, once they are ‘ready’ to know their powers. 2:22 and 2:22 is a specific reminder to slow down, detox/ let go, and focus on relationships over results.

-Strongly influenced by planets like the Moon and Uranus. Some links to the sign of Cancer – Cancer is ruled by the Moon and it’s the 4th sign in Astrology. Also, WATER adds to 22/4 in Pythagorean numerology (see the system I use).

Pros of being a Master 22: Hardworking, hands-on, practical, constructive, persuasive (The 2nd or Sacral Chakra is all about people skills), natural leaders and parents, good at relationship-building, strive for long-term results, business-minded (depending on the rest of their numerology/ free will), competitive, energetic and futuristic. Connected to Star People/ Starseeds. That’s why Master Numbers love to ‘starbake’ under the night sky. Come here to create spiritual justice (but can struggle with indecision) – especially if they have Composite Whorl (Yin Yang) fingerprints

Famous Master 22 Lifepaths include Peter Jackson (31 October 1961), Bill Gates (28 October 1955, a 31/4 and 22/4 hybrid), Clint Eastwood (31 May 1930), Oprah Winfrey (29 January 1954, a 31/4 and 22/4 hybrid), Sir Paul McCartney (18 June 1942, a 31/4 and 22/4 hybrid) and Sir Richard Branson (18 July 1950, a 31/4 and 22/4 hybrid).

Also Margaret and Denis Thatcher, Kim Kardashian (her father died, she appeared on TV and her famous sex tape was made around ages 22-23), Demi Moore, Leonardo da Vinci (finished his first masterpiece around 22), Leymah Gbowee (Liberian peace activist), Paul Potts (a singer who won the first series of Britain’s Got Talent), and Sabah (a famous Lebanese singer). More info and examples can be found in my Lifepaths webinar

Cons of being a Master 22: Like all Master Number carriers, they face additional tests of idealism, ethical conduct and responsibility. Prone to workaholism (WORK, PAIN and GAIN all equal to 22/4 in Pythagorean numerology), notoriety (Kim Kardashian!), addictions or allergies (e.g. gluten, dairy, chemicals) and nervous burnout. They need fresh water and good food (preferably organic/ local), often come from complex families and can be sensitive especially with a Girdle of Venus. Remember, being too private is as risky as being too candid – the heart needs fresh air to grow. 

As a builder, you may need to start from scratch in life, or learn to do things systematically before any rewards appear. 22’s can ‘over TWO it’ by trying to hard too make people like them, when their goal needs to be self-care and inner peace. The 4 in their Lifepath can make them stubborn, rigid or aloof (an out of balance 4th/ Heart Chakra is unforgiving).

I hope you’ve enjoyed this introduction to life as a Master 22. The 2nd Chakra is the Pleasure Centre, so this can be a delicious experience if you go with the flow…

webnation on Wednesday, 23 September 2015 9:28 PM Born 2nd February 1971 that summed up 22/4. I have never been realized about Master 22 or what not. The one thing I am sure about I somehow has connection to the universe and it is alive communicating with me. Most time I am not entire sure what that means but it started make sense to me now. Yes, I often see numbers in sequence 12:34, 234, 345, 4567,111, 333, 444, 555, 777. Take note that I have never mentioned 222. If from this on, I see 222 often, I know the universe has affirmed and agreed what I learned today. It is well guided me crossed path to this website knowing about lifepath 22 with the other number of sequence churning my curiosity to further research. I shall take on what the universe had designated for me. Reply to comment

Andrea on Thursday, 19 May 2016 6:00 AM I am a 22 with a composite whorl only on my right thumb. Reply to comment

Sarah Yip – Thanks for your reply Andrea, great to meet another Starseed!

yogita on Thursday, 22 September 2016 9:24 PM Date of birth is 22/03/1972. Would like to know the impact of master number 22 on birth date. Reply to comment

Sarah Yip – Hi Yogita have a look at my Find Your Lifepath page for info on 26/8’s. As I mention in the article above, a 22 day birthday will still bring some Master 22 qualities to your numerology.

Tomasita Herrera on Sunday, 2 October 2016 6:34 PM I am 22 life path my birthday is 7-7-79. I would like to know more about this subject if possible. Thanks Reply to comment

Alexander` Maxwell Christian on Sunday, 9 October 2016 9:09 AM I have the same Life path numbers as July 2nd 1993 7+2+1+9+9+3={31/4} 7+2+1993=2002=(22/4} is that right? Wouldn’t the 00 not count since they have no value you get 22/4 right? Reply to comment

Sarah Yip on Tuesday, 11 October 2016 1:26 AM Hi Alexander, thanks for your query and for taking the time to write in. In the system I use, you are a 22/4-31/4 hybrid, see other examples in the blog post. Many famous people have this vibration. It’s a balance of the intense master builder and the more sociable ‘spiritual tradesperson’ energy. The 0’s don’t count as you have mentioned. Best wishes Sarah

Richard on Saturday, 24 December 2016 7:54 AM I just found I’m a 22 very interested in knowing more. Please email as much as possible can’t seem to find what that actually means or who I am in regards to that Reply to comment

Sarah Yip – Hi Martin, you clearly have many Master Number influences in your numerology so have a look through my blog articles – I write frequently on how people with 11/22/33/44 in their charts can make the most of their sensitivity, intuition and spiritual wisdom.

Reggie on Tuesday, 31 January 2017 6:32 PM I was told I was a life path 4 but I have incredibly strong 22 characteristics as well as strong 4 (5.18.1979) Reply to comment

Sarah Yip – Hi Reggie, as mentioned in the article and previous replies, you can have 22/4 energy in other places in your numerology, you might also be a hybrid. Go with whatever resonates most for you and gives you inspiration.

Jermaine Collado on Wednesday, 19 April 2017 3:07 AM I…read about path # 22 its really my personality and I want to tell you that I think God can talk to me and show me the answers to all my questions, but my mind is so very tired to think because it’s always over thinking about the people around me.

And I always look for my personality my mission my purpose in life…I’m so dramatic and emotional and sensitive and my mind is not in control and my past is I’m a lesbian…(edited for privacy and brevity)…I always push my self to move forward and never look back..Reply to comment

Sarah Yip – Hi Jermaine, thanks for your honesty and sharing. You have many qualities of a Master Number lifepath and I can only encourage you to seek support and a spiritual education so you can love yourself on this journey. This article I wrote on the challenges of a double lifepath – A Poem for My Critics – might be a good starting point.
