Angel Number 131 and What It Means

You’re likely reading this article because you may have repeatedly seen the number 131 for a certain amount of time. Enough to make you question why you keep seeing this number. The most commonplace to see the Angel Number 131, as with many but not all Angel Numbers, is on your digital clock. This would be a common occurrence, especially for those who use the 12-hour system, since 1:31 occurs during our waking hours.

Since it is also a fairly simple 3-digit number, you may see this as the number of likes on social media posts or the number of messages you receive. You may also see this as a sum on your calculator, invoice, or bill. If you are traveling, this could appear as a hotel room number. It could also be part of your flight or boat number.

It may be rare as a standalone Angel Number on license plate numbers and odometers, as well as other longer format numbers such as serial numbers. However, you may see 131 repeatedly in the middle of these numbers as soon as you begin to develop an ability to extract and single the 131 out.

No matter what the circumstances, it is very important that you pay attention to how you’re feeling. What are you especially concerned with at the time you saw Angel Number 131?

What does Angel Number 131 mean?

As you may already be aware, “Angel Numbers” are a way for our Guardian Angels to communicate with us without physically showing themselves to us. These are generally positive messages of encouragement or protection. In the case of Angel Number 131, some of these messages are:

  • That you are protected in all your communications, provided you communicate in a manner that is in the best interests of the greater good. Shed your ego, and you will be supported and protected in expressing your truths and your most authentic self. As long as you do not intentionally hurt or offend others
  • The Number 3 symbolizes early education and childhood learning. This is a sign that you should focus on the fundamentals of any situation. Don’t jump to conclusions; ensure your foundation of knowledge is solid first before making any assumptions. The 11 that surrounds 131 can be considered the manifestation of Master Number 11. It is the most intuitive of Master Numbers and is associated with the Ascended Masters. This would indicate that in addition to being protected by your Guardian Angels, you are being guided by the Ascended Masters. If you are unaware of who these Ascended Masters are and what they do, feel free to read our general guide on Master Numbers.
  • In numerology, Number 3 may also represent the body, mind, and soul. Oftentimes when we talk about spirituality, our focus goes straight into “mindfulness” and the soul’s ascension. But some of us neglect our bodies. Never forget that we are spiritual beings having a human experience. And that human experience involves being in a vessel, this human body that we were born into. How is your self-image? Are you happy with the way you look? Are you taking the best care of your body? Are you feeding yourself nutritious food? Or are you harming yourself by indulging in less-than-healthy food products? Are you overworking and pushing yourself too hard? These are a few things that your Guardian Angels want you to consider when you see the appearance of Angel Number 131 in your life.

Breaking Down the Meanings Behind the Digits

Now let’s break down these three digits:

  • In numerology, the Number 1 can mean: a new quest, the seed of an idea, a new beginning, an impulse, awareness, independence, individuality, being an initiator/innovator, mental power, opportunities, optimism, potentials, self-motivation, the essence of something, the “Self,” urge, willpower, and masculine (yang) energies of the Sun
  • The Number 3 may symbolize action, birth, celebrations, co-creation, creativity, the development process, expansion, exploration, flow, growth, harmony, increased joy, short-distance journeys, movement, new birth, nurturing, opportunity, perspective/viewpoint, pregnancies, procedure, product. It is associated with the planet of luck, Jupiter
  • Number 13 in numerology: is the symbol of the clock/calendar’s cycle, which is considered “closed” at 12

So how does it differ from Angel Number 1331, then? Unlike Angel Number 1331, which reduces to 8, Angel Number 131 reduces to 5:

1 + 3 + 1 = 5

Number 5 represents the acquisition of new knowledge/resources, change of mindset, swift action, and Mercury/communication. It also advises against complacency as well as being open to embracing change. Also worth noting is the fact that the Number 3 in this Angel Number is surrounded by two 1’s, which may be interpreted as Master Number 11. This appearance of a Master Number would indicate that 131 is a message of protection and guidance from the Ascended Masters.

131 Meanings in Context

In Platonic/Familial Relationships

Anyone dealing with family issues would benefit from paying attention to any Angel Number containing the Number 3. The reason for this being that it represents early education, family members within our own age group, and communication. Early education may include our upbringings, so there could be a focus on that. Even if you are not dealing with family issues or focused on a friendship with others within your age group, it might be beneficial to you to track back your history. Most peoples’ personalities were shaped during their earlier years. Dig into your upbringing and your childhood. This could help you identify root causes and solutions to any issues you may be dealing with now.

In Romantic Relationships

In romantic relationships, seeing Angel Number 131 may indicate a change in your relationship for the better. This change will usually have something to do with your surroundings. This could be your province/state, city/town, village, or your neighborhood. Your vicinity, basically. Anything within the radius of what would be considered “short-distance travel.” For example, your involvement in the community may help your relationship blossom. Or something that you do as a couple will change your community in a positive way.

For those experiencing relationship issues, the advice would be similar to those dealing with family issues. Look into what part of your upbringing and childhood experiences. What part of it led to current subconscious beliefs or behavioral patterns/mindset?

In Business and Career

In the context of business and career, seeing Angel Number 131 may indicate benefits coming from your direct environment. As already mentioned above, Number 3 is associated with our closest environments. As in, what we would consider within the range of “short-distance travel.” If you relocated to begin a new job or open a branch of your business, it would be in your best interests to learn the local customs in your new environment.

Perhaps this could indicate that by adapting to your immediate surroundings, you will reap benefits. Sometimes it is tempting to “introduce” your culture to your new locale, but this is not recommended at this time. You will benefit from hiring somebody local. This could be someone with in-depth knowledge of how things are done in your immediate environment.

On the other hand, Angel Number 131 reduces to Number 5. The number represents change. If your business operates in your own hometown, you could benefit by focusing on introducing something new. Especially if you think it will improve what is already there. Remain mindful that you’re respectful to the local customs and culture.


Where the Number 9 is associated with higher education, the Number 3 in numerology is associated with early education and childhood experiences. This advises you to know the foundations of your field of study like the back of your hand. Your Guardian Angels are emphasizing that it should be your main focus at this time.

If you are an educator rather than a student, seeing Angel Number 131 is encouragement from your Guardian Angels. They are letting you know that you are on the right track. (In particular, if you teach young students.) And that you will be protected by your Guardian Angels and the Ascended Masters in performing your duty educating the young minds in your care.

What should you do when you see Angel Number 131?

  1. Focus on the numbers and the meanings of the numbers 1, 3, and especially 5. Focus on the meanings of these numbers which resonate with you and be open to change. You can meditate or pray with a focus on these vibrations. These numbers do contain vibrations that our Spirit Guides and Guardian Angels send out away. Harness them and use them!
  2. Thank your Guardian Angels or Spirit Guides for their supportive message.
  3. Use the positive messages you’ve learned as your daily affirmations.

Happy manifesting, best of luck with all your spiritual as well as worldly endeavors.
