Missing Numbers often indicate the missing traits, characteristics – desirable or undesirable- from a person’s persona. They also indicate some important lesson a person needs to learn, or maybe some important habits a person needs to cultivate, in order to lead a more balanced life. To others, it gives an indication of the other person’s shortcomings, and thus a message that one needs to be tolerant, understanding and supportive of this fact. And then, maybe, they can lend a helping hand in the quest of a person struggling to develop any of his/ her missing qualities.
