Angel number 1717 and what it means

This is a common number to see if you work a 9-to-5 job when you’ve just gotten off work. As with Angel Number 1616, consider how you feel when you see this number. Do you feel neutral? If you feel indifferent, it could be that seeing this Angel Number will be more relevant to non-work-related areas in your life.

This number is most significant when it comes not in the form of the time on a digital clock, although all Angel Numbers are significant. People rarely are motivated to get vanity plates or order a special mobile number with 1717. Unlike the ubiquitous Angel Number 88, which loses impact if made intentionally. However, if you see 1717 on a license plate number while traveling abroad, there could be a significance to that. What’s most important when dealing with Angel Numbers is following your gut. Trust your intuition. You may also see this number in conjunction with Angel Number 717.

What does Angel Number 1717 mean?

Now if you see 1717 seven days in a row, and you’re not the type of person who is constantly on their mobile phone, this is significant. It is highly likely that your Angels are trying to send a very important message that is relevant to your main concerns during this time. These messages are:

  • Understand that you are only human. It is simply impossible for you to please everyone. There will always be people who disagree with you. Especially if you come up with an innovation, a new idea, and original thought. You can expect some resistance when it comes to anything with a sense of newness or novelty to it. What you need to do is understand that they are resistant to your thoughts, but not to you personally. They may think you are a sweet and adorable person, but perhaps your new ideas threaten the status quo. That’s what they’re truly afraid of. Your Guardian Angels want you to know that this is a time for you to learn to not take things personally. Disagreeing is a part of life.
  • You will be given a second chance by the Universe. Especially if you feel like you’ve missed out on a big opportunity, or if you feel like you’ve made a mistake in the past. You will be given the chance to right a wrong. If that wrong involves bad judgment, you may be given a chance to apologize to that someone and make it right to them.
  • Since number 1 is representative of individuality, leadership, and creativity, you may be recognized as a leader in your field. You will be considered an example to your community. And even though there will be those who envy you, your Guardian Angels will protect you.

Breaking Down the Meanings Behind the Digits

Now let’s break down these four digits:

  • The number 1’s meanings in numerology include: newness, independence, good luck, ideas, individuality, initiator, innovation, mental power, self-motivation, willpower, action and manifestation, new beginnings/energies, optimism, potential, and is associated with the masculine energy (yang) of the Sun
  • Meanwhile, the number 7 represents: self-assessment, transformation, taking time, taking stock of a situation, decisions, being prepared, being able to protect oneself, solitude, spirituality, striving toward perfection, introspection, moving forward, planning, psychic development, reassessment, reflection, it is energetically associated with the planet of dreams: Neptune

On top of being doubled/amplified, these numbers reduce back to 7 again, as if coming full circle.

Number 1 energetically is a number that invites us to act on the energy it is attached to, in this case, 7.

Both represent different sides of the “Self”. Number 1 is focused on how that “Self” behaves outwardly toward its surroundings. And it also concerns the actions and the manifestations of the Self. Whereas 7 concerns self-introspection, self-assessment, self-reflection. It has more inward energy; it is the internalized sense of Self.

1 + 7 + 1 + 7 = 16 (a hardening energy due to its association with the inflexible/stiff number 4)

1 + 6 = 7

1717 Meanings in Context

In Platonic/Familial Relationships

Number 1 is a number of individuality and being an initiator, while 7 is a number of spirituality, decision, and the ability to defend oneself. If you are planning on having a possibly complicated discussion with somebody, it will go well. If this is concerning a friendship, you may decide to reveal hidden a side of yourself to your closest friends. You may reveal to them more information on your personal beliefs.

You may be teaching Spirituality to your children or grandchildren. Be patient with them. If they are not immediately receptive when you pass down your system of belief, perhaps they are a little too young to absorb that type of information. Make sure your lessons are age-appropriate. Avoid becoming too strict or inflexible. Accommodate their wants and opinions. Bridge any possible generational gaps.

In Romantic Relationships

Angel Number 1717 advises you to avoid conflict stemming in strong personalities and being too individualistic in a relationship. Since 1717 reduces to number 7, it also advises taking a step back and being the bigger person when conflicts arise. Take the moral and spiritual high ground.

If your relationship has been rocky, you will be given a second chance to make things right and start over. Your Guardian Angels are nudging you to make things right this time around. They are warning you to not repeat the same mistakes that you made the last time. Sometimes this is not a fault of your own. If you have allowed people to treat you badly in the past, your Guardian Angels want you to teach people how to treat you with respect. Remember that 7 is all about knowing how to set boundaries. Stand for your rights. Stand your ground. Others will respect you only when you respect yourself.

In Business and Career

Although this does not contain any number that directly pertains to business or prosperity, this is a relevant number when it comes to jobs, careers, and work. In particular, those who work 9-to-5 jobs. Perhaps this number asks you to reflect on how your day went at work.

Number 1 represents leadership, originality, innovation. Meanwhile, 7 is a number of being able to defend your position, spirituality. In some cases, 7 may indicate resistance from outside forces. For example, if you came up with an original, groundbreaking idea, you can expect to face some resistance. Your Guardian Angels advise you to come prepared.

Before presenting your ideas at a meeting make sure you have all the answers first. Back your claims with facts and good data. If possible, start a personal “Frequently Asked Questions” list. Practice answering them with confidence. Also, be aware of avoid being too strict and inflexible.


If you are applying for University, you may be in a situation in which you are defending your position in some sort of choice. You want to make a decision in your academic life, but those around you (parents, elders, your community) may disagree with a decision/choice you make. For example, you may want to pursue a career in arts, but your family wants you to study business or attend medical school. If it helps, try to use the presentation techniques explained above, under the “Business and Career” section. Practice your speaking points.

However, if it is possible to not study a certain subject formally, for example, lets say you want to study IT. If you can learn how to code as an autodidact, find a middle ground. You may consider taking an informal course on the subject matter of your choice while also keeping your parents/family happy.
