A largely misunderstood angel number
The ascended masters and your guardian angels are there to give you guidance on your spiritual path.
They want to see you happy, healthy, and successful.
The messages they send are often simply to let you know that something needs to be changed in order to get you back on your true path.
They invite you to take a closer look at your inner self, and determine what needs to be adjusted to gain the abundance of good that is waiting for you.
Don’t Miss Out On This Unique Astrological Opportunity
Are you clear about your purpose? Are you tired of spinning your wheels and getting nowhere?
Sometimes – despite your best efforts – it can feel like the Universe has other plans. And that can be frustrating, to say at least.
Well, there’s a reason you can’t get to where you want to go.
Simply put, you’re out of sync: you’re out of alignment with your astral configuration. And until you find that alignment, you’ll continue to experience this feeling of resistance.
But — and here’s the more optimistic side of that coin: there’s a kind of map that can help you reclaim your alignment.
A map that will not only help you define your purpose and potential, but also reveal key talents and strengths you didn’t even know you had.
Think of it as your own personal blueprint to success and happiness: a blueprint that will help you live your most amazing life. Find out more here.
So just what is the meaning of 666 Angel Number?
In order to understand the significance of the 666 angel number, we need to break it down into its components.
The number 6 is the number of responsibility; it is the number of balance.
The number 66 also indicates a need for concentration on your home, or on “the domestic.”
Together, the number 666 indicates a need for balance between the home and the rest of your life.
There is an indication that something in your life is out of balance, and your angels are warning you to discover what that something is, and set it right again.
666 revisited: Angel Number meanings and Your Twin Flame Number
The 666 angel number doesn’t concern itself much with your twin flame, so put your worries to rest if that’s been bothering you.
The message is a reminder to wake up and get your current life and relationships in balance so that you can hear the call of your twin flame’s soul.
This does not mean you won’t be finding that special connection.
It only means that now is not the time.
Your family may need you more right now.
Take some long walks, and try to get your mind off of monetary issues. You’re headed in the right direction.
And remember to count your blessings, and maybe even say a prayer for the things that bring stability to your life.
With this attitude in mind, you’ll be more able to recognize your soulmate when you come across them, wherever on this planet they may be.
Guardian angels, harmony, and 666
Despite the obvious “fear factor” of 666, seeing it can mean that the divine world is telling you you’re on the right path.
Being aware of these positive vibrations can help you get rid of any negative energy.
In fact, this angel number’s well-known negative connotation can cause people to lose sight of what it means in terms of their personal development and spiritual awakening.
It’s as if a sixth sense were urging you to let go of negative thoughts, or an unhealthy focus on material things, material possessions, and material wealth.
Stay positive, and embrace the harmony inherent in those three sixes.
Added together, the digits in 666 equal 18, which reduces to nine, the number of completion. And this, too, is a kind of harmony.
The 666 angel number in love
When it comes to love, the angels in this case are asking you to examine your current relationships.
Are they in balance, with an equal give and take between you and the other person?
Are you codependent or encouraging the codependency of another individual? There needs to be true balance in your love relationship for it to work.
Seeing this number can also be an indication that it may be the time to give up your current relationship if it is not working.
In order to have balance, you are being asked to give up what doesn’t serve you.
This includes toxic people and any bad habits such as addiction.
Once you are ready to let go of all that is bad for you, you will find things and people coming into your life that will help you achieve the inner peace you deserve.
What does 666 mean spiritually?
The spiritual significance of this number is often surprising.
In the spiritual realm, the number 666 doesn’t need to be a bad sign with negative associations.
It can also represent positive outcomes, for example in terms of one’s love life or domestic life.
In fact, the spiritual meaning of seeing 666 can suggest a new source of positive energy on your spiritual journey: a positive sign of spiritual growth.
The number appears as a spiritual message from the divine word — from the angelic realm — and it appears for a reason.
Spiritually, seeing 666 from your angels is telling you that you may be out of balance in some way.
It is time to examine every area of your life and identify that imbalance and then you need to work on fixing it.
One of the best ways to connect with your spiritual self and get more balance is to spend time in nature, especially near the water.
Take time to clear your mind and focus on your thoughts. Find that peaceful place within your soul and then listen.
Spending time with animals will also help in this aspect. Animals have pure souls and understand how to be in the moment.
Allow them to share that knowledge. You need to find balance and doing so means you need to trust in yourself and your guiding angels.
What is the relationship of the 666 angel number to other angel numbers?
Most of the angel numbers are indicators from your guardian angels that you are on the correct path.
The angel number 666 is one of the few that shows you the need to make a major change in your life.
You will be led into the unknown with this angel number, and you need to put aside your fear as you step out of your comfort zone.
Giving up that which doesn’t serve you can be scary, but you need to trust in both your own strength, and the fact that your guiding spirits won’t allow you to fall.
You may have heard the expression “stepping out in nothing and finding something there.”
With this 666 angel number, more so than any other, this statement is true.
Have you been seeing 666? Positive outcomes are close at hand
If you have been seeing 666 lately — on a supermarket receipt, on a license plate, or even on your 1980s heavy-metal album covers — there may be a need to see if your life is unbalanced, as we have mentioned above.
One reason for this is that you may have been spending too much time lately worrying about your financial status.
You may have been working so hard that you have neglected your family obligations, or not taken enough time to connect with your spiritual nature.
You have lost sight of the bigger picture.
Now is the time to put aside your fear, and realize that when you remain positive and bring your life into balance, all that you need will appear.
This is also a message from your guardian angels that you need to let go of some things.
The main things you need to release are fear, addiction, or unhealthy attachment.
Plus, there may be discord within your family.
Now is the time to sit down together and heal.
Focus on having a positive attitude, and prosperity will take care of itself.
As a spiritual person, the clues to your higher purpose are everywhere; you just have to be open to seeing them.
Think of this process as a kind of “next level” spiritual mission.
The 666 meaning in the law of attraction
In order to have room for new things to come into your life, you need to let go of what is taking up that space.
Your guardian angels are sending you the 666 message to remind you that your thoughts become actions.
You are holding onto things that are preventing the law of attraction from bringing what you seek into your life.
You are being reminded to give up all that is not contributing to your advancement.
Leave behind fear, and step into the unknown with faith.
Put aside bad patterns, and let go of any toxic relationships.
Keep your thoughts positive and you will attract positive things to fill those spaces you have cleared.
It’s a common belief that the powerful number 666 is a literal sign of doom, but it needn’t mean that at all.
As we’ve seen, it’s often a positive number — that is, a good omen and not a bad omen, unlike the way it’s often portrayed in popular culture — that’s heralding new events in your life.
Your spirit guides want to nudge you towards new beginnings in your life purpose, towards more positive thoughts, towards becoming a better person.
So see the bigger picture, and try to stay positive. Pay attention to the good fortune that repeating numbers like 666 will guide you towards.
Numerology and 666: your guardian angel is whispering in your ear
Despite popular belief, the number 666 has many different meanings in angel numerology.
The number six often means something along the lines of “insufficient,” or “not enough”: it’s not quite seven, for example.
Seven is perfection, and the single-digit 6 (or in triplicate 666) is a number that very much wants to be perfect, but keeps falling short, again and again.
You are being given the chance to recognize that you too sometimes fall short, but that it is okay.
The way to solve this is to balance all that is out of balance.
Now is the time to let go of all that serves no purpose or does harm.
Uncovering the messages behind the Angel Number 666
You are receiving a message from the top when you see the angel number 666: an angel message of the highest rank has been sent to you.
It is interesting to note that the highest order of angels, the Seraphim, each has six wings.
Like the other angel numbers, uncovering the message behind the angel number 666 takes some work on your part.
You need to go inward, possibly in a natural setting or around animals, and look inside honestly.
You are being warned that you are unbalanced, and in danger of veering from your spiritual path.
An honest look at all aspects of your life will help you determine where this unbalance lies.
Then, you need to push aside the fear of getting outside your comfort zone and let go of what is causing the problem.
You will then be able to continue on your proper path and receive all that the universe holds in store for you.
Why is 666 the devil’s number, or the “sign of the beast”?
It’s a question many people wonder about: why is 666 the number of the beast? Why is 666 a bad number, according to some?
First of all, 666 is just a number, and as such is neither good nor bad.
But it’s certainly true that 666 is often associated with the devil, demons, and similar things.
And that has been the case for centuries.
The link between 666 and the devil almost certainly comes from the Bible.
In the New Testament’s Book of Revelation, chapter 13 (13:17–18), the number 666 is called the “number of the beast,” although this controversial passage is sometimes translated as “the number of a man.”
More on this longstanding association below.
What does 666 mean in the Bible?
Explaining the Biblical meaning of 666 is the stuff of many (long) books.
Many people might be surprised to learn that the above-mentioned “mark of the beast” 666 reference in the Book of Revelation is not the only instance of this number in the Bible.
Indeed, the number 666 makes many other appearances in the Bible, some with a similar meaning but some very different.
For example, 666 also refers to the amount of gold (measured in so-called “talents”) that King Solomon collected every year (one talent weighed anywhere between 30 and 60 kilograms, so that’s a lot of gold indeed).
666 also refers to the number of descendants of Adonikam who returned from exile in Babylon (explained in Ezra 2:13).
Some scholars believe that the number 666 in the Bible may have been a secret reference to the Roman Emperor Nero, via a letters-to-numbers system called “gematria.”
Why do some people fear 666?
All those devilish references to 666 in the Bible and pop culture (thanks, Iron Maiden!) apparently start to take a toll on some people.
In fact, avoiding the number 666 is a real thing: it’s called hexakosioikhexekontahexaphobia.
For example, former President Ronald Reagan had the address of his and Nancy’s Bel Air, Los Angeles home changed from 666 Cloud Road to 668 Cloud Road back in 1989.
And the year before that, the new owners of a former furniture store in Chicago changed the address from 666 North Lake Shore Drive to 680 North Lake Shore Drive.
In 2006, NBC News reported that some women were delaying childbirth by a day so that their child would not be born on June 6 of that year, in other words on 6/6/6.
And in 2015, the (former) Texan congressman Joe Barton had the number of a legislative bill changed from 666 to 702 to avoid “many different negative connotations.”
More recently, the mega-expensive 666 Fifth Avenue in New York City was rebranded as 660 Fifth Avenue.
Where is route 666? And where is highway 666?
There used to be a U.S. Route 666 in the state of New Mexico, but in 2003 the name changed to U.S. Route 491.
Some people may be confusing this with the legendary U.S. Route 66 (of “get your kicks” fame), which runs through Missouri, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona.
Is the Washington Monument 666 feet tall?
No, despite what some corners of the internet may say, the Washington Monument is 554 feet tall.
What happened in the year 666?
In the year 666 A.D., the Byzantine Emperor Constans II allowed the northeastern city of Ravenna to appoint its bishop without prior consent from Rome, which was a bold step at the time.
Buddhist monks in China developed chariots that featured a mechanical, gear-based device that would always point south, which was an amazing navigational advantage compared to what existed at the time.
What happens if you call 666?
Nothing, it’s not a working phone number.
But calling 999 is another story. That is the main emergency number in several countries, and some people may get the two numbers confused.
What does 666 mean in Chinese?
In Chinese, the number 666 is actually thought of as a lucky number.
Many store windows display this number prominently.
That is because in Chinese, the number six is pronounced in the same way as a character that means something like “smooth,” so 666 means that things will go smoothly.
What is 666 in roman numerals?
The Roman numeral for 666 is DCLXVI.
Interestingly, DCLXVI is the smallest Roman numeral to have one occurrence of each symbol in decreasing order: D = 500, C = 100, L = 50, X = 10, V = 5, and I = 1.
Where is area code 666?
Nowhere. There is no numbering plan area that uses 666 as its three-digit telephone number prefix (which is what “area code” means).
What is the square root of 666?
Interesting question. It’s 25.8069758011…
Is a 666 credit score good?
Short answer: no, not really.
Be it for a home loan, an auto loan, 666 is not a very good credit score. As credit-reporting company Experian explains, a 666 FICO score is towards the better end of the “fair” category (which runs from 580 – 669).
While “fair” may sound okay, the only worse category is “very poor” (they seem to skip “poor”). And the “fair” category is worse than “good,” “very good,” and “exceptional.”
It means you have a better score than about 32% of your fellow consumers, but a worse score than 68% of them.
As Experian writes, some money lenders choose not to work with people whose credit score is only in the fair range, as 28% of them are likely to at some point become “seriously delinquent.”
And if someone in this credit score range does secure a loan, it is likely to come with a high interest rate.
More fun facts about the number 666
666 is the sum of the first 36 numbers. In other words, 1 + 2 + 3, all the way up to 36, adds up to 666.
That’s why 666 is also the sum of all the numbers on a roulette wheel, namely 0 through 36.
Interestingly, 666 is also what you get when you add up the squares of the first seven prime numbers: 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, and 17.
In other words, 2 squared (2 x 2 = 4) plus 3 squared (3 x 3 = 9) all the way up to 17 squared (17 x 17 = 289) comes out to 666.
