Angel Number 3 Meaning: 5 Incredible Reasons You’re Seeing It!

Did you know that angel number 3 is one of the most spiritual and magical numbers in existence?

In fact, for centuries, it has long been considered the most ‘perfect’ number because of its link to the heavens, earth, and oceans.

It not only represents creativity, harmony, and life-changing transformation, but it also signals the manifestation of positive changes, divine blessings, and good fortune in your life.

Seeing it is absolutely no coincidence!

In this post, I’ll delve deeper into the true meaning of angel number 3, the real reasons you’re seeing it, as well as what it means for your career, wealth, love life, and twin flame connections.

What is the Meaning of Angel Number 3?

The meaning of angel number 3 is one of pure joy, abundance, and opportunity. This number vibrates with the positive energy of creativity and openness, inviting you to step into new experiences and embrace fresh beginnings.

If you’ve been dreaming of doing something, of carrying out a vision, you are being unequivocally told now is the time to go for it.

Anything is possible for you right now. The Universe is conspiring in your favor!

Whenever you see angel number 3, you can be sure blessings are on their way to you; be it a new career, a promotion, a relocation, a sudden windfall of money, or a new chance at love. 

You’re absolutely on the right track to manifesting your wildest desires, but there’s something your angels want you to do first; believe in yourself.

They want you to go all out, and trust that you have the ability to make your dreams a reality. Number 3 represents your potential, and trust me when I say there’s a lot of it. This number promises good fortune and a highly auspicious future. 

Note: If you see triple 3 e.g. 333 know that this message is amplified, and so brings with it 3x more blessings, opportunities, and fortune!

What is the Spiritual Meaning of Angel Number 3?

Here’s where things get super interesting. Spiritually, angel number 3 is linked to the lower divine realms, meaning the realms closer to Earth.

Whilst this could mean your manifestations are much, much closer than you think, I see it more as a link to your beautiful soul origin.

3 is the closest number we have to the angels (as well as number 9). It’s possible you’re a magnificent Earth Angel, here with a mission to weave your inner light into this world.

The world could quite literally be a giant playground for your soul. Consider seeing angel number 3 as a gentle nudge from your soul family to finally embrace your truest self. 

5 Magical Reasons You’re Seeing Angel Number 3


How often do you find yourself living in a state of fear? Fear of not having enough money, fear of not being good enough, fear of not having the perfect body, fear of not being loved?

This list could go on forever.

The truth is that we all experience fear from time to time. But what if I told you that there was a way to break free from this fear prison? That you could step into a life of joy and abundance instead?

Well, the good news is that this magical life is your birthright. Your natural state of being is one of abundance. You are worthy and deserving of all good things. 

Angel number 3 tells you it’s time to break free from the chains of fear and step into your rightful power.


You may not realize it, but you are never truly alone. When angel number 3 appears, it’s like a warm hug from your angels.

They’re always by your side, watching over you and guiding you through life. The ups and downs. The lows and highs. The moments of joy and sadness, they see it all.

And right now, they want you to know that despite the hardships, everything is going to be okay. 

But they also see the strength, courage, and determination within you to overcome these challenges.


This is a very interesting message and one that you might not have been expecting.

Angel number 3 is resoundingly positive by nature, but what happens when you’ve been going through some heavy transition periods in your life?

In this case, angel number 3 acts as a message to keep going, to keep taking small steps forward to rewrite your narrative and story.

Your past doesn’t define your future, and your future is still yet to be written. At any moment, things can suddenly work out.

This is the number of miracles, so don’t discount anything yet.


If you’ve been making positive changes in your financial life recently, expect those decisions to pay off very soon.

Number 3 is ruled by Jupiter, the planet of abundance and wealth, it signals anything from a job raise, a new income stream, a successful project, or a brilliant new idea to make more money.

It also serves as a reminder to not let your brilliant ideas sit on the back burner for too long! This could be your ticket to financial security or even freedom.


In case you need a little reminder, the entire intelligence of the cosmos lies within you! It’s coursing through your veins, makes up every cell in your body, and breathes in with you when you take a breath. 

With angel number 3, your guides are asking you to trust your gut instinct and let it lead you toward the path that speaks to your soul. The destined path. The path that lights you up when you think about it.

Take the time to connect with your inner wisdom and your intuition. What practical steps can you take to start moving towards this vision?

You might also see this message appear in the form of 303, master number 33, or even number 1033.

Secret Meaning and Spiritual Symbolism

I love delving deeper into the realms of tarot and astrology to give greater meaning to angelic numbers!

In tarot, number 3 is linked to the majestic Empress card whilst in astrology, number 3 is directly tied to the planet Jupiter.

The Empress card represents sensuality, fertility, creative expression, femininity, and abundance; she’s the mother, nurturer, and creator of the deck. Jupiter also carries a similar meaning with ties to profound abundance, good fortune, confidence, and optimism.

What you might not know though is that Jupiter is also linked to abstract thinking, mental clarity, and purposeful life direction.

astrological meaning of number 3

Combined, the hidden and symbolic message behind angel number 3 is one of redirection, of being unafraid to get lost, start again and try completely new avenues.

I sometimes think we get caught up in the idea that if it’s not perfect the first time, it’s all lost. Number 3 encourages us to see our journey up until this point as an opportunity for growth and expansion, using it as a springboard for the future.


There is an intensity here, a psychic pressure to do what feels right to you. Honor it. Cherish it.

Whilst this might not mean taking a giant leap of faith straight away, it could mean taking steps to move in the direction your soul is yearning for you to go.

Under the power of number 3, career switches, changes, promotions are all possible right now. Building a personal brand or a solo-business also gets the spiritual greenlight from your helpers.


Are you trying to control your own potential through anxious tendencies, worry and doubt? Now’s the time to let go and enjoy the exhilarating ride knowing that the intentions you’ve set are being woven into a reality.

Your mental and emotional health needs to take priority right now. Somatic work as well as inner child work could be a good idea, if you’re not already doing it.

Money and Wealth

Angel number 3 celebrates you for your continued effort and determination in building a better life for yourself!

The gift or rather message here is that taking a calculated risk is sure to lead to the wondrous results you’re seeking.

This is a time to harness your will and apply it ruthlessly to the pursuit of your dreams.

New income streams and opportunities for investment are likely to open up to you within the next few months if you do.

What Does Angel Number 3 Mean for Love and Relationships?

Angel number 3 is a powerful sign from the universe that your love life is about to experience a major shift…for the better!

This number is associated with abundance, fertility, and happiness, and its appearance in your life indicates that you are ready to attract more love into your life – including self-love.

Whether you are looking for a deep, true connection or simply want to deepen your existing relationships, you can think of seeing angel number 3 as a sign that you’re about to embark on a journey of pure transformation and soul growth.

Single? Your angels want you to not only fall in love with someone else, but fall in love with yourself too. With life. With art. With music. With nature. With possibility.

Take time to ask what it is that you want out of life. Think about your values and goals.

Get crystal clear on who you’d like to attract and let the intention fly. The Universe is letting you know that a true soulmate match is on the horizon for you.

In a relationship and want to deepen its connection? Now is the time to let go of any past hurts or disappointments in this relationship, embrace new opportunities with open arms, and always trust that everything will work out in your favor in the end.

This is a fantastic time to hit the next major milestone in your relationship, be that moving in together, starting a family, getting engaged, or something similar.

Your love has the potential to soar to new heights!

In a relationship but not sure where it’s heading? Angel number 3 promises a beautiful divine rebirth, and it depends on what you want as to whether this is with this person or with someone else entirely.

After something has run its course or has been released and finished, the Universe will always open up a new chapter.

  • Do you want to fix your relationship with this person?
  • Have you discovered you’re just incompatible?
  • Do you desire to be free?

Whatever you choose, you’re being supported.

With the magic of angel number 3 guiding you every step of the way, there is nothing standing between you and a happy, fulfilled love life!

Angel Number 3 and Twin Flame Relationships

Angel number 3 is a powerful sign for twin flame relationships. 3 is a sign that your relationship is being blessed by the heavens, and is on the whole, highly compatible!

Number 3 is heavily associated with the Ascended Masters, who guide spirits like twin flames to reach their highest potential.

This sacred number is said to represent the perfect balance of mind, body, and spirit – the three elements that merge to form a healthy, harmonious twin-flame relationship.

When you see angel number 3, it is a reminder to cherish your connection with your twin flame and to appreciate all that you have been given. This is a special relationship that is rare and beautiful. Nurture it.

When twin flames see this number, it is a sign that they are on the right track and that their relationship is progressing well. It’s also a sign of a possible twin flame reunion.

Experiencing a twin flame separation? This is one of the better numbers to see as far as a separation goes.

Number 3 reassures you that once you’ve had time to heal, grow and learn as separate individuals, you’ll come back together to form an even stronger union. One filled with honesty, trust, and purpose.

The Mystical Numerology Behind Number 3 – Is it a Lucky Number?

Yes! The idea that number 3 is a lucky number can be traced back to ancient times, when it was revered as a symbol of harmony and balance.

The number 3 represented the connection between the heavens, the earth, and the underworld, and it was seen as a way to bring order to the chaotic forces that threatened man’s existence.

Over time, this magical significance came to be associated with good fortune and positive outcomes, making number 3 an auspicious figure in many cultures.

Today it is still seen as an auspicious number, guaranteeing success for many entrepreneurs, investors, and superstitious individuals who place their faith in its power.

Number 3 and the Law of Attraction

Angel number 3 has long been associated with the law of attraction and manifestation. This mystical number offers all the energy you need to make your dreams and goals a reality.

According to folklore, by connecting with this divine number (see what to do now section below on how to do this), you can attract unworldly success, happiness, and abundance into your life.

Your Life Path Message

If you’re into the wonderful world of tarot, you’ll know that the 3rd card in the deck is undeniably one of the most important; the Empress.

the empress tarot card and its connection to number 3

The empress is a spellbinding figure representing femininity, creativity, and fertility. She is often depicted as a regal woman seated on a throne, surrounded by nature.

Not only a true symbol of abundance and prosperity, but her appearance often indicates following a heart-led path – a path created from our hearts and forged by intuition. Taking baby steps into the unknown.

The message here is that if you’re ever feeling stuck or lost, remember that number 3 will always, always be there to guide you back to your truth. You need only tap into its guidance.

Why Am I Seeing 3’s in my Dreams?

Seeing the number 3 in your dreams is a major sign of divine intervention; in fact, it’s one of the greatest signs you’re being guided and protected on your journey ahead.

It also reveals something super interesting about your inner being too. Whilst numbers can be common to see in dreams, if you remember them, it’s a sure sign you’re a more ‘mature’ or ‘advanced’ channeler on Earth who is used to detecting astral phenomenon.

3 is the master guide, the master creator as well as the master builder, it’s connected to the lower realms, the middle realms (Earth), and the upper realms.

If you’re seeing 3’s in your dreams I would definitely make a note of any symbols, signs or messages you receive over the next coming weeks – it’s likely super important to your direction ahead.

Angel Number 3 and Its’ Link to Personality

You may or may not know this, but angel numbers can be linked to personality types and characteristics too. Similar to how your individual name carries a meaning, the numbers you see over time do too.

From my experience, number 3 speaks of a soul who is deeply connected to inner growth, internal wisdom and harmony.

This is a soul who is inextricably linked to the angelic realms. There’s also a possible link here to Lightworker origin.

Doreen Virtue and Number 3?

Doreen Virtue, a former psychic and author, believed that number 3 was a sign from your guardian angel in particular (not any of the other types of angels).

She believed it was a sign your guardian is working to help you achieve your goals, but to do so you must ask them for guidance by using the power of prayer or intention-setting.

Angels act according to free-will meaning they won’t intervene unless we ask them to! So ask away!

Why Do I Keep Seeing Number 3 Everywhere?

Good question! Typically, if you see the same number repeating over and over again it means your guides have an incredibly important message to share with you, so important that they’re making sure you don’t miss it.

It’s also possible you’ve missed previous symbols or signs from them and so they’re grabbing your attention another way.

Does Angel Number 3 Have a Biblical Meaning?

Despite what you might have read, angel numbers actually don’t appear in the Bible (at least not as we understand them). Numerology isn’t always an accepted practice in most religions.

That said, some might argue that number 3 relates to the Holy Trinity, the idea of the Son, the Father, and the Holy Spirit.

If you’re a follower of Christ, it’s highly possible number 3 is being revealed to you to let you know that your faith and dedication to not only your religion, but also yourself is admirable.

What to Do After Seeing It

Did you know that you can physically connect to the energy behind angel numbers?

  • One of the easiest and most powerful ways to connect with angel number 3 is to focus on its universal symbols, such as rainbows, butterflies, or other images that exude joy and light.
  • Do inner child work
  • Decorate your home or workspace with images containing this number, or work with positive affirmations every morning before going about your day.
  • Lean into creative hobbies
  • Create a manifestation board and get crystal clear on what you wish to attract

If there’s one thing you should know about angel numbers it’s that they don’t work in isolation.

There’s an extremely high chance you’re seeing other numbers alongside 3 – the key is being aware of them. 

Harmonious numbers to watch out for include:

These numbers will help you to unravel further core messages your guides want you to receive.
