Angel Number 55 And What It Means



Have you been seeing the numbers 55 everywhere? Perhaps you feel like you always just happen to catch a glimpse of your digital clock as it reaches the 55th minute? Or you always seem to pause an online video you’re watching at the 00:55 second mark, and you’re wondering why?

Or maybe you’ve heard negative meanings of the number 5, and you’d like to learn more? Here we will tackle the misconception that the number 5 is to be feared, as instead it should be embraced.

What does Angel Number 55 mean?

The best-known meaning of the number 5 in numerology, in one word is: Change.

This is why number 5 is often misunderstood as a number to fear. We often forget that there is such a thing as a positive change.

Your angels are telling you not to fear seeing 55. Rather, seeing Angel Number 55 should excite you. The Number 55, in general, is a sign that lets you know that major life changes are coming. The messages that come with seeing this Angel Number are:

  • Don’t fear change. Be adventurous.
  • Don’t be alarmed if these changes feel unpleasant at first, they are just growing pains. Whatever change is about to happen will be for the best. This change may precede a beautiful new beginning for you. Be flexible and keep a “can-do” attitude.
  • Understand that even though the change will disrupt your life, it is not there to destroy it. It’ll just make you stronger. Think of it this way: Sometimes, we need to clear a plot of land to build a better home. If you harness this energy effectively, it will lead to productivity and progress.
  • Let go of a situation or behavioral pattern that no longer serves you. Your Guardian Angels are softly nudging you to leave your comfort zone to move along to something bigger and better. It’s time for that change. You’ve grown, and your Angels want you to keep progressing. Your Angels are advising you to not be complacent with momentary happiness. Think longer term.

In essence, your Guardian Angels are showing you Angel Number 55 because they think you deserve better. As always, your Guardian Angels are there to protect you.

Breaking Down the Meanings Behind the Digits

Keep in mind that “change” is not the sole meaning of the number 5. This number also carries the following meanings: Recovery/healing, renewal, successful action, swift action, a shift for the greater good, knowledge acquisition, resources, and opportunity.

In the esoteric sense, number 5 is a key number in our human existence. It reminds us to remain in tune with the body and our humanity (we have 5 senses, 5 fingers/toes). The number 5 is also a common symbol of the human (4 limbs and our head).

5 + 5 (two odd numbers, melding into each other) = 1 + 0 = 1 (new beginnings, leadership, being united)

When numbers repeat, the energies that number contains is amplified. In the case of Angel Number 55, the energies of 5 are doubled.

Keep in mind that in numerology, the numbers 11, 22, and 33 are considered “Master Numbers.” These are numbers of significance. They are powerful numbers. Likewise, because 55 is a multiple of the Master Numbers, 55 carries an amplified message of these numbers (be it 11 x 5, 22 + 22 + 11, 22 + 33, and so on).

Angel Number 55’s Meanings in Context

In Platonic/Familial Relationships

If you have adult children and they’re about to “leave the nest,” so to speak, don’t worry. Your child will be fine. He/she may have to learn some lessons on how to survive in the “real world,” but these are invaluable lessons that they need to learn.

The number 5 is a number that signifies “having resources.” As mentioned above, Angel Number 55 reduces to 1 (the number of independence/standing on their own). Your son/daughter could be separating from you to start their own family with a new spouse or moving to pursue a new career. Whatever the case, they will develop into a resourceful, independent individual.

Remember that 5 + 5 = 10 (the number of completions, you have raised your child well).

The number 10 is then reduced to 1 + 0 = 1 (independence, standing on your own)

This is your time to enjoy your golden years and retirement.

Since the number one is also a number of new beginnings, it could signify a birth in the family.

In Romantic Relationships

Don’t confuse “difficult conversations” with “conflict” (the number 5 is associated with the planet of communications, Mercury). Difficult conversations are necessary to build a stronger, more stable foundation as a unit (as 1). The advice here is to ensure that any difficult conversations you have with your partner are constructive. Don’t shy away from making progress. Communication is key in your relationship at this time. Assess and discuss your behavioral patterns as a couple. Once everything is crystal clear, and you’ve reached a compromise (as that 5 + 5 equals 1), you will be more solid as a unit.

One of the meanings of 5 is “action in second chances,” so don’t give up on your partnership just because of a little speedbump down the road. What are speedbumps for? They slow you down temporarily to keep you safe. Likewise, if you take time to work on your partnership, step-by-step, you’ll arrive at your destination safely.

In Business and Career

Since the number 5 is generally associated with communication, seeing Angel Number 55 can mean two things:

  • You are embarking in a new career in the communications sector;
  • You will be required to improve communications with your coworkers to achieve the best result; or
  • Both of the points above.

Also, note that the number 5 is also associated with management. So, 55 informs you that better management is required. Unlike number 4 (the number of structures, stability, and a solid foundation), number 5 is an odd number. Whenever we see an odd number, we may face some level of discord or disorganization/chaos.

The number 5 is also about the creation of something new (it creates a new dimension out of the stability of the number 4). Once you get organized, you will be more productive, and within that system, your creativity will shine. You could come up with a new original business model or an innovative product. (What’s important is, don’t be discouraged if you meet resistance at first.)


As a student, seeing Number 55 reminds you to not become overwhelmed/intimidated by the amount of new knowledge you need to learn.

Remember, this is the number of chaos. But since the number 5 repeats only twice in Angel Number 55, there’s actually not that much chaos. You may feel scattered and disorganized in your studies, this is manageable.

5 + 5 (chaos all over the place, advises to see the bigger picture) = 1 + 0 (complete) = 1 (unify)

Be more organized. Use your resources and organization tools to stay on top of things. Don’t allow information to be scattered all over the place.

You will get the best results by organizing all the information you have to absorb in one place. Make a complete “master guide” for yourself. You can use one binder/notebook or file. Maybe you can draw a “bigger picture” graphic/table to help you mind-map all the knowledge you’re required to take in.

What should you do when you see these Angel Number 55?

  1. Your Guardian Angels want to remind you that change wouldn’t be put upon you unless your Spirit Guides, God, or the Universe didn’t think you would be able to handle it.
  2. Thank your Guardian Angels or Spirit Guides for their kind message for you. You may want to meditate or pray with a focus on the vibrations of Angel Number 55.
  3. Focus on the positive meanings of number 5. Think about the bigger picture (as Angel Number 55 amplifies the general 5 energy). Use the positive messages your Guardian Angel has sent your way. Use them as affirmations to keep you motivated.

Don’t fear change, look forward to a better future. Enjoy this new phase of your life!
