We all use numbers every day, but few of us
think that there is more to numbers than
their general use as a medium of
measurement. In fact, numbers have their
own inner characteristics and meanings and
understanding these leads us down a path of
discovery, even self-discovery, which can pay
us handsome dividends in terms of happiness
To those of an enquiring mind who want
to know why, I would just say c try for
yourself; I shall be giving you all the tools
you need for the work. You can then do some
venturesome exploring and who can say how
absorbed you may become in your journey of
discovery to the secret inner worlds?
These are the same worlds of abstract
design in which mathematicians of old, like
Pythagoras, laboured to bring the world a
workable system based on the numbers one
to nine. Later researchers have added two
master numbers, eleven and twenty-two.
It is interesting to note that Pythagoras
said 'Nature geometrizes', and the great
psychologist Jung stressed that numbers,
instead of being the product of invention,
were found or discovered. He said, in fact,
that they were spontaneous productions of
the unconscious and that the latter uses
number as an ordering factor.
The origin of both the alphabet and
numbers seems lost in the mists of antiquity,
but so far as we are concerned, numbers have
valid meanings and so can guide us in
assessing both people and situations.
We are all interested in ourselves.
Numbers provide us with interesting tools for
exploring ourselves and our own potential
This is not all. We can obtain valuable
guidelines as to our future, our career,
happ iness, health, success. Numbers, their
analysis and understanding, put into our
hands a route map to guide us on our journey
through life as well as a basic 'map' showing
our particular situation at birth.
Given this data, there is no longer any
need to hesitate or waver, lose our way and
waste our time, we have only to follow our
Words are symbols of thoughts, and like
numbers they communicate ideas. Words
can be transformed into numbers for each
letter has a numerical value of its own just as
each number has a letter value.
So let us get to work now and give you the
basic meanings of the numbers.
THE MEANING OF NUMBERS
The person who has number 1 on any of the
main positions of birthday, expression,
destiny or reality, and so predominant in his
numberscope, is a dynamic personality,
independent, original, creative, a hard
worker. He gets things done, encourages,
advises and drives others. If he will use these
qualities positively, his life will be successful.
This number is ruled by the Sun, and
stands for all things masculine, such as
courage, leadership, decision and willpower.
Number 1 people are predominantly mental
types and are introverted. Those who have
number 1 strong can only fail if they
are indecisive, lacking in confidence, lazy and
allow themselves to be led by others. They
can also fail if they become -over-positive,
dominant, egotistic and intolerant.
When applied to future events, number 1
indicates new starts, the launching of new
projects, personal or business. Success if the
past is left behind, a time to be determined,
active and courageous.
Affinities - 2, 4, 7. Colours -

Numbers 1 and 2 go together, they are
polarities for number 2 is as essentially
female as number 1 is masculine. Number 2
people, that is people with 2 predominant in
their numberscope, should ideally exhibit the
best of the womanly qualities, that is
gentleness, tact, adaptability, understanding
Number 2 is ruled by the Moon, and so to
you the home, family and peace and
harmony in relationships are very important.
They should be the ones to make for
harmony and beauty in their surroundings,
they should never push for things, but gain
them through their quiet, gentle, diplomatic
ways and capacity to handle others.
Number 2 people can fail if they fall into
negative ways, accepting everything which is
dealt out to them without protest, being
over-tolerant, obsessive about detail and
worrisome, not being able to adapt
themselves to others and losing out by being
moody, touchy and easily upset. ^
People with this vibration predominant
can be either too 'bottled up' or over-
emotional, they need to keep a balance for
success and happiness. Their warmth,
sympathy and understanding attract others.
Regarding future events, number 2 warns
of the need for caution, a wait-and-see
attitude, the time for decision is not yet.

Number 3 always relates to self-expression,
and if number 3 is predominant in your
numberscope you must always try for
personal self-expression in creative ways, for
this number gives you talent where writing
and speaking are concerned.
Number 3 endows its children with a
basically happy, optimistic, carefree nature,
they must not be imprisoned or forced into
too practical ways for this number tells that
they were born to encourage and entertain
A creative outlet is essential for success
through acting, singing, dancing, music or
other forms of creativity.
The number 3 is essentially related to
Jupiter, planet of abundance, joy, good luck,
so you feel the need for breadth of contacts,
social life, friends and a job which is not too
practical and down to earth.
Failure comes to the number 3 if you do
not develop your potential, if instead of being
a joy-bringer you are a pessimist and a
killjoy. You can also fail by being too restless,
by never sticking to anything, and by
worrying unduly you can make yourself and
others into nervous wrecks.
Overdevelopment of your basic
characteristics can also lead to failure
through a tendency to self-advertisement,
boasting and conceit. Snobbism and
cynicism are also negative 3 traits.
Success comes to the number 3 when you
develop and use your gifts, then your life
brings happiness to others and you are
fulfilled yourself. For the future it gives the
green light and suggests Lady Luck is

If you have someone in your family who is
predominantly a 3 person, and another
member who is very much a 4 person, you
will continually be reminded of their
differences, for these two numbers are almost
mutually exclusive, although each could give
much to the other.
Number 4 people are predominantly
strong-willed and serious, for 4 is the number
of the will and so 4 people can be powerfully
constructive, true builders, willing to work
and attend to details, or they can be equally
Naturally number 4 people will be
successful if they are prepared to work to
develop their skills in order to be of service to
others. They should be reliable, responsible
and patient, for upon their work and sound
constructive abilities many vast edifices are
based. Routine, detail and system are very
important to them and they dislike change

unless advised of it well in advance.
Tenacious, obstinate and determined, they
get things done.
Number 4 is related to the planet Uranus
in its more Saturnine construction, and
therefore number 4 is rated a relatively
restrictive number and vibrates on an earth
It may be said that the strongly 4 person
has to face definite limitations and
restrictions, but his powerful willpower and
determination, allied with creative
imagination, enable him to override
difficulties and reach success - a service of
some kind is often the best bet for him.
He can fail if he uses his willpower in
purely destructive ways to rebel against
practically everything, to argue and debate
endlessly and even use violence to reach his
On the negative side, too, he can be
stubborn to a fault, unreliable, weak, careless
and lacking in concentration. For the future
it shows the time to slow down and work for
change in the future.
Affinities - 2 and 8. Colour - grey.

Number 5 predominant in the numberscope
gives quickness of thought and action, a love
of freedom, change and variety. These people
are truly mercurial, they are progressive in
thought and hate to be tied down to routine
They flourish where things are going on
and generally choose a public career related
to travel, salesmanship, the creative arts,
adventure, communication in one of its
Number 5 is ruled by the planet Mercury,
and so the number 5 person has a brighter
than average mind and has to use his creative
powers constructively to be happy and
successful. Thought and communication are
very important to him and he can, therefore,
fall down on this vibration by using his mind
destructively and so make himself ill and
Negatively he can be destructive and
pessimistic or else just plain unreliable,
deceitful, a confidence trickster, using his
glib tongue and power over speech to fool
and defraud others. When acting negatively
he avoids all responsibility and tries never to
'carry the can'.
Number 5 is also the number of sex
attraction and magnetism, and number 5
people are generally strongly attracted to the

THE MEANING OF NUMBERS
Number 6 is the number of the romantic
idealist. Number 6 is sympathetic, attractive
and loving. It inclines the person who has
this number predominant in their
numberscope to strive for love, their own
home and hearth fire.
You'll have a very strong desire for
harmony and beauty around you, whether
this is in your home, community or group.
You are basically conservative in your views
Your ideals always drive you on to seek for
improvement in everything you touch, and
you have a flair for beauty, colour and art.
With this number strong you are
essentially a practical person and can accept
responsibility, whether in the home or in the
wider sphere of community or organization.
Happiness to the number 6 is essentially
sharing and harmony in relationships, hence
the importance of forming the right
relationships. It is a number ruled by the
planet Venus so that there is artistic ability
as well, which is often expressed in the home
environment and in clothes if not actually in
other creative work.
Success comes through diplomatic
balancing and handling of the difficult
temperaments the number 6 will inevitably
encounter in their immediate surroundings,
and the giving of willing service.
Failure arises through an insistence on
your own ideals, a too narrow, exclusive
attitude to loved ones, friends and
possessions. There can be jealousy and
interference with others and continual
complaints which lead to quarrels.
For the future this number shows that
matters have to be adjusted in the home and
possibly between partners, as it is a number
which rules both marriage and divorce. ; Do
not delay' is the message.
Affinities - 6, 3 and 9. Colours - blue and
pink. Fortunate day - Friday.
While number 6 people are essentially
extrovert, needing companionship, number 7
people are introverted and the thinkers,
mystics and philosophers of this world.

selective, solitary and aloof. You are strongly
individualistic, sense a great deal, but say
Number 7 is ruled by Neptune, the
inspirational, illusive planet, the planet of the
heights and depths. Those with 7 strong can
be markedly creative and artistic if they use
their gifts positively.
You have the capacity to see through
things, to reach a more spiritual reality, you
do not fit in easily with the hustle and bustle
of the modern world.
Essential to the success of the number 7
are peace and quiet and communion with
their inner selves. Sacrifice of some kind

When we spoke of the heights and the
depths, the heights alluded to the
inspirational/spiritual insight conferred by
the number. The depths referred to the
illusionary side of the 7, and the wearing of
The illusionary side leads to the desire to
escape from reality and this can come about
in various ways through refusal to face the
self and problems as they really are. This can
lead to drugs, drink, promiscuity, illness.
Living up to the highest in your nature you
can be the mystic or creative artist and find
success through following the truths which
you unearth from your inner self.
When this number comes up for the
future, a beautiful aura of self-deception can
make life difficult. Relationships do not last,
contracts should not be entered into. There is

earthly and material power, so you number 8
people are often attracted to c big business'
and to the organizations which stand for this.
You are people who have a good eye for
value, you are discriminating and
authoritative, prepared to work relentlessly
towards your goal.
If working for material power only you will
not find success, you have to incorporate
ideals and doing things for others into your
philosophy then you are better prepared to
withstand the obstacles and disappointments
you will have to surmount to achieve your
Mistakes can be made on this vibration if
number 8 tries to drive too hard, yourself and
others, and misses out on the spiritual side of
life. You find success if you will temper
justice with mercy and do not neglect the
emotional and spiritual.
Number 8 is often associated with
marriage, for number 8s are more dependent
upon others than they would like to admit.
You need love and affection, but find it
difficult to express your feelings.
Marriage in this connection has often
something to do with security and money.
Number 8 is ruled by the planet Saturn, so
number 8s have to work and keep working to
achieve their goal and stay there.
Success for them is to be found in the
world of material values and power.
In predicting for the future, number 8
warns that this is no time to stand still. One
must go ahead but be prepared to work and
take responsibility. Marriage is a serious

With number 9 we complete the circle of the
numbers from 1 to 9. People who have
number 9 predominant have energy and
drive, optimism and generosity coupled with
great compassion. It is the vibration of
energy which is to be used for universal
service and love.
You are never pretty or small, but grasp
broad principles and contacts. You are
strongly intuitional and creative, but your
true fulfilment only comes through service,
tolerance and a capacity to be fair in all your
dealings. You are leaders and have the drive,
courage and optimism to pull success out of
You succeed through using your energy
and drive in fields which will give you broad
scope for usefulness, and in particular those
under this number are often drawn to travel
communications and foreign fields of service
and enterprise; some field where your drive,
imagination and sense of adventure will not
be stifled and where your need to serve will
bring you happiness and fulfilment.
You can fail if you allow selfishness and
narrowmindedness to enter into your
thinking and attitudes. You will find life tries
you on these scores.
Number 9 is associated with the planet
Mars, and so gives a strong character,
independence and assurance.
* When this number is shown for the future,
nothing new should be begun, for 9 being the
end of a cycle shows this is the time to pick

This is considered a master vibration and
you who have this number strong have
spiritual insight, are idealistic and visionary
and, being ahead of your time, are not easily
accepted or understood by others.
You are 'tuned in' to higher forces. Your
minds are inventive, progressive, intuitive.
You are searchers and seekers after truth, so
unconventional and unorthodox in your
beliefs. You are always a law unto yourselves
and have to go your own way in life.
Success comes to you in life when you
uncover truths about yourself, others and
life, which can benefit the race and humanity
as a whole. You are often lonely for there are
few at present who follow this inner path
with dedication. This number is associated
with the planet Uranus.

tremendous potential for realizing your

WORDS AND NUMBERS
Now we have to show how numbers are
related to language, and this is done by
setting out the primary digits 1 to 9 and
simply placing the letters of the alphabet
In analysing a name, three major operations
are necessary to obtain three different
numbers, all of which have their separate
meanings as related to you.
L Tour AMBITION or Inner Urge Number is
called the ideality by some numerologists.
This is found by the addition of the vowels
in your name. Vowels are A E I O U, and if
there is no vowel in the name, Y becomes a
VOWel." '• < i "- r ' I " •' -
2. Tour PERSONALITY number. This
represents the outer you, sometimes called
the impression or appearance number. (The
'impression 5 you make.) This is found by the
addition of the consonants in your name.
3. Tour EXPRESSION number. These are the
abilities with which you were endowed at
birth.; \/ 'V :> ^' r;: ''':V ; ' v: ;: ::V
Always use the name you were given at
birth, even if adopted. This is your true
vibration, other names taken add vibrations,
but life runs on your original name and no
other, this is you; your parents, believe it or
not, were inspired to give you the right name.
We can now set up a name and analyse it
into its components. First of all numbers
must be reduced to a single digit.
= 6 =6 =6+6=12=1+2 = 3
3 = Ambition or
Vowels 5 + 1 1+5 Drive Number
Consonants 1+5 8 + 9+4 + 7
= 6 = 28 = 2+8 = 10 = 1.
Consonants totalled = 6+1 = 7
7 = Impression Number
Totalling the vowels and consonants together
once they are reduced to a single digit gives
an Expression Number of 1, i.e. 3 Ambition 4- 7
Impression = 10 =1. Summarizing, then -
Jean Harvey has:
3, drive or ambition, the inner urge.
7, impression or appearance number.
1 , expression or attitude plus abilities.
So this tells us that at heart, Jean is a
sociable, fun-loving, talented type. She loves
people around her, a home, family, children
and friends; she can paint, write or express
WORDS AND NUMBERS 25
herself in some other creative way (her 3
However, the immediate impression she
gives others is of someone rather aloof, chilly
and reserved (7 impression). She is the type
who will wait and see how she likes you at
the first meeting. If she finds she has
anything in common she will unbend and be
interesting if she is sure of her ground.
With a 1 expression she throws herself into
achieving what she wants out of life and
concentrates on doing well whatever she
In her own sphere she will be a leader
inclined to want to do things her own way in
an original, independent manner. However,
her desire to be liked (3 ambition) and her
sensitivity will serve as welcome brakes on
any tendency on her part to be too bossy or
selfish, at least in too obvious a manner.
However, it is wise to remember that any
number can be used negatively, and so a
person may show forth the unpleasant side of
a number rather than its constructive
10=1 14 = 5
4 + 4 + 4 5+9
12 = 3 14 = 5
Vowel total = 1+9 = 10 = 1-
5+9 = 14 = 5
6 = Ambition Number
4+4+4= 12 = 3 =ft
5 + 9 = 14 = 5
8 = Impression Number
So David Weir has a 6 ambition number and
an 8 impression number derived from the
consonant total. The two added together give
6 + 8 = 14 = 5 Expression.
From this we gather that David Weir is
home-loving, conscientious and diplomatic,
he will want to help others and at the same
time will want encouragement, love, home
and family, and adequate remuneration for
any work he undertakes. (The ambition
His outward personality is powerful and
inspires confidence in others, he likes good
clothes and the company of those who count.
Combining the two vibrations as 'the tools
he has brought to use' we have a 5 total, and
this implies that he has quickness and agility
both mentally and physically. He will not
want to be too tied down, the 5 likes change
and variety. His ambition number will
incline him to work for others and in
partnership, perhaps as a doctor or other
therapist, where his versatility and attractive,
confident approach would be helpful.
It has to be remembered that the inner
urge will count a great deal, this is what the
person really wants to do, his drive is the
secret hidden mainspring of all his actions.
Wh ereas a number 6 ambition will want
love, a home and family, will want to help
others and bear responsibility, the number 5
ambition will desire to be free and
progressive, to use his creative gifts.
WORDS AND NUMBERS
Number 5 will not make the ordinary
husband or father; although he is fond of the
young and romance, marriage for him will
have to include intellectual interests in
common, in the same way as the number 6
ambition will desire artistic and cultural
interests in common.
The total of the consonants and the vowels
shows what the person does best and his
general mental approach.
For instance, a person with a 1 expression
would never do well working in a
subordinate position, in an ordinary
humdrum job without any chance of using
his creative and original ideas, his capacity
for concentration and hard work. He travels
The frequency with which numbers
appear in a name or the lack of them is of
great importance, for remember, every letter
has a number, every number has a specific
When tabulated these show what the
person has or lacks in his makeup. These are
unconscious factors, and if you have a belief
in karma and reincarnation these, where
lacking, indicate weaknesses to be made
good during this life and where present
benefits are piled up from the past.
It seems only too true that life tests us on
Taking DAVID WEIR as an example we
can set up his specialized traits as :
D A V I D WE I R
Here we see that David Weir has a
predominance of 4s and 9s, the 4
representing the practical skilled worker or
technologist and the 9 representing the
humanitarian and service in a wide universal
sense. Both these are numbers of service and
the 4 has a particular slant regarding health.
David has quite a few numbers lacking,
but these may be made up on the major
positions, in fact the 5 is also the number of
his expression, likewise 6 is his heart
However, 2, 3 and 7 are not made up so we
can conclude that David Weir will find the
situations symbolized by these numbers
cropping up in his life and to a lesser extent
those other missing numbers will also make
their lack felt, for these are his stumbling
WORDS AND NUMBERS
His natural talents are:
4 A person who is good at routine, detail
and system, he is a practical builder and
worker, his concentration and judgment are
9 He has compassion and sensitivity, he is
kind, sympathetic and generous, he has
literary or artistic ability and enjoys travel
and broad contacts.
2 He tends to lack the idea of co-operation
and does not always consider others as much
as he should.
3 He tends to be impatient, scatters his
forces and may suffer from an inferiority
6 The question of responsibility,
particularly in the home, will come up in his
life at some time, and there may be trouble in
7 He is not an analytic type, the caution
and tendency to look under the surface for
hidden meanings is absent. He may well be
happier for this.
8 In his case this is largely made up by the
4s, which give him the application and
practical ability also endowed by the number
8. He will not be too intense nor will he drive
too much and worry about money.
The numbers always have the same
meaning, it is just that their interpretation
varies according to where they are found in
A brief outline is given of the
intensification table, or what the presence or
lack of a number means in the name, to help
you work your own traits out. You can add to
these from the explanations given earlier as
to the meaning of numbers.
Many of these numbers give:
1 Leadership, pioneering, originality,
2 Diplomacy, co-operation, sensitivity,
moodiness, indecision, consideration.
3 Sociability, self-expression, optimism,
imagination, the spoken or written work,
so ability along these lines.
4 Practicality, application, work, economy,
restriction, health, tendency to be
5 Freedom, variety, adaptability, change,
attraction to the opposite sex,
resourcefulness, highly strung.
6 Love, ideals, domesticity, service,
protection, marriage, adjustment,
balance, artistic ability.
7 Powers of analysis, introspection,
secretiveness, faith, wisdom, peace, quiet.
8 Executive ability, good judgment,
material power, success, ambition.
9 Universal love, sense of brotherhood and
service, compassion, understanding,
artistic literary ability.
WORDS AND NUMBERS 31
Few of these numbers give:
1 Lack of ambition, independence,
originality and ambition. Too much
thought for self, lazy.
2 Lack of co-operation or consideration for
others, little sense of harmony, rhythm.
Tact and diplomacy missing.
3 Lack of patience, difficulty in expressing
the self. Lack of imagination and a quick
temper, tries to do too much. Perhaps an
4 Dislike of work, detail application,
concentration, a tendency to impatience.
5 Dislikes change or fears it, little curiosity,
hangs on to old situations and things.
6 Lack of ideals, a neglect of duty,
unwillingness to assume responsibility.
7 Does not analyse, is not introspective,
8 Lacks good judgment and a sound money
sense, can worry about money unduly or
be completely carefree.
9 Has a narrow outlook, lack of compassion,
understanding, little interest in others or
the good of humanity.
YOUR DESTINY PATTERN
Up to now we have analysed a name into its
component parts and shown the traits and
characteristics as indicated by the numbers.
Now we have to go a little further and
interpret your birthdate also, for this
indicates the job you were sent to do, your
purpose in life, and the path you must walk
to fulfil this mission.
The path of destiny is found by adding the
day, month and year of birth and reducing to
a single digit, unless this is one of the master
numbers 1 1 and 22, which are not reduced.
We will take someone born on 6 October
Day 6 Month 10 Year 1947
= 6 =1 =3 =10 =1
This person's destiny or birth path is 1. 1 is
the number of the pioneer, the individualist,
he will always find himself in situations
where he has to stand alone, make his own
decisions, he should not allow others to butt
in on his decisions.
Now let us consider the birthday 4 March
Day 4 Month 3 Year 1930
= 4 =3 =4 =11
This is a master vibration or overtone, and
YOUR DESTINY PATTERN
where it comes as a destiny influence it can
be reduced to the simple 2 unless the person
wishes to face up to the potential of the 11.
Here the stress is on intuition, teaching and
idealism. People born under this number are
interested in the unusual, they are searchers
and seekers after the truth, they may have
radical views, but they have to live up to their
ideals and so they may be lonely, v or living

Avoid the negative traits of being
dominant and boastful, pessimistic, critical
A 4 Path of Destiny - Practical
Your path is likely to entail you in a great
deal of 'hard grind'. Even if your other
numbers show you have riches, their
possession will entail your doing a lot of hard
work and giving much attention to detail.
Moreover, there are bound to be times in
your life when you are very much restricted
by the need for economy, duty and
responsibility, even perhaps by your health.
However, do not turn your head away in
disgust for your contribution to the general

cornerstone number and you are likely to be
well rewarded for the amount of hard work,
sheer grit and endurance you have had to put
in. Things come slowly to you.

If you think of anything as too permanent,
you will soon find that this is not so;
although you should not make changes for
the sake of change, always thinking that the
grass on the other side of the fence is greener.
Learn foreign languages, be alert to what
is going on, keep up with the world, seek new
ventures and untried paths, tackle things
with ingenuity. Use your capacity to get
things going and keep them moving forward
progressively. You are one of the progressives

neglect your roots.

sympathy the world would be a poor place
No matter how independent you are, your
destiny will always push you to assuming
responsibility and the care of others, whether
this is solely in marriage or in the
professional or commercial world.
Your success comes from the love which
others show you, as well as the financial
rewards which will be yours.
You can fail if you refuse to accept
responsibility, if you try to dominate or
possess others, forcing them to your way of
thinking, making them emotionally
dependent on you.

Not for you the rush and the dash of
modern life, you function best behind the
scenes and as a lone operator. Somehow you
have to learn to be alone and like it at times,

life's problems. In understanding that all
answers have to come from within will you be
able to guide others.
The secret, the antique and the mysterious
will always have their charm for you, and
you will be successful in so far as you learn to
operate from your inner centre. Never rush
into anything; accept your partnerships in a

constructively for the good of the community
as a whole.

Certainly you can be successful, for you
have poise, assurance and self-control, which
would best be used in the commercial,

you will be a great success.

To be happy and successful with a number 9

attitude to life as a whole. You have to forget

moneywise you are divinely protected
provided you live up to your ideals.
THE MASTER NUMBERS
Number 1 1 Destiny Number
If you have this number and do not wish to
live up to its high potency, you can simply
reduce it to a 2 and read there your destiny.
If, however, you wish to explore the
heights and depths of number 11, you have to
learn to trust your intuitions and guide your
inventive and original mind into practical
channels, that is if you wish to benefit from

drive you into being an eccentric and an
impractical dreamer, or a critical, bossy
YOUR DESTINY PATTERN
Number 22 Destiny Number
As with the other master number, 11, you
can reduce a 22 to a 4, and read for yourself
what is written there.
However, if you wish to live up to your full
potential then you should be prepared to
unite your ideals and your practical skills in
some broad universal, idealistic scheme. This
is a number which often occurs in relation to
social welfare schemes and spiritual or
healing foundations where the
idealistic/humanitarian vision is to the fore.
You, in fact, were born to be the practical
builder and idealist to bring down to earth
your imaginative and constructive visions.
New movements are your strong point.
However, you can only succeed if you see
your ideas as a whole, allow others to work
out the details and do not allow yourself to be
sidetracked by others worried about the
'where' or the c how\ You are the builder, so
you must build somehow around, through or
over your obstacles.
THE MEANING OF YOUR
You are all interested in the interpretation of
your birthday. From the numerological angle
this has added significance as it is one of the
most important cycles of life - the middle
cycle. Therefore your birthday has
considerable influence in choosing your
career, and its vibration has to be considered
All birthdays are grouped into three
classes called concords. They are the water,
fire and air concords.

birthdays which reduce to 2, 4, 8, 11 or 22.

best in the business humanitarian field.

sometimes born under these numbers owing
to their gifts of timing and precision. This
concord represents feeling and emotion.
People born under these numbers feel
deeply, but are unable to express their
emotions, so are often misunderstood.
The business birthdays of any month are
the 2nd, 4th, 8th, 11th, 13th, 17th, 20th,
22nd, 26th, 29th and 31st. They make good
business executives, bankers, general
merchants, secretaries, auditors and
politicians, and innovators of new
movements, especially 1 1 and 22.
Air or Artistic Concord. Those of you
whose birthdays reduce to 3, 6, 9 are the
artistic, literary and creative ones.
Your career lies before the public in some
capacity. People born under these vibrations
usua lly have no difficulty in expressing
themselves in a creative way.
The element of air is spirit so these are
regarded as the inspirational impersonal
The air birthdays of any month are the
3rd, 6th, 9th, 12th, 15th, 18th, 21st, 24th,
27th and 30th.

good artists, writers, doctors, lawyers,
advertisers, humanitarians and actors.

fields than the average, but you have to be

business field, for you are an excellent
organizer and executive. You have great
enthusiasm for starting things but do not find
it so easy to finish them, so you need more
continuity and persistence.

monied or likely to be so. Don't live in the

ideals, so you are a natural for leadership.

partnership will not suit you.

character and prefer the unconventional

Your success lies in making a good
foundation to all you attempt.
HOW TO LAY OUT AND ANALYSE
Books sometimes are frustrating teachers, for
their writers often seem to forget the one little
thing which it is essential to know in order to
gain competency in any particular subject.
You are left tearing your hair and the writer
is quite unaware of your frustration.
In this book I aim to avert this situation,
although it is difficult within a confined
space, by explaining exactly how you should
set up your numberscope.
If you will remember, the name totals gave
us three factors.
1 . The addition of the vowels gives the drive,
ambition or inner desire.
2. The addition of the consonants gives the
personality or the impression you make
3. The addition of the vowels and
consonants gives your expression number
or what you do best, and your general
4. The addition of the expression and the
destiny gives the reality number, or your
goal in this life, towards which you are
working all your life.
Y is to be treated as a vowel only when
there is no vowel in the name. Remember to
check your arithmetic. It is no use unless
correct in every detail.
Your destiny pattern is shown by the
complete birthdate. That is the day, month
and year of birth reduced to a single digit.
The name to be taken is always the one
you were given at birth, even if this has been
changed since for whatever reason.
The birthday is the one which applies at
your meridian of birth.
Name changes bring additional vibrations
but do not alter the birth pattern completely.
We now have a full example of name and
1 5+ 6395+ 6 5 = 6+5+11 = 22 =
ANNE LOUISE JONES 4 = Ambition
5 5+3 1+1 51= 1+4+7 = 12 =
3 = Impression
Addition of Ambition and Impression = 4+3 - 1 = Expression
Birthdate = Destiny Pattern, i.e. 2.4.1946 = 2+4+2 = 8 Destiny
Reality = Addition of 7 Expression and 8 Destiny =15 = 6
What You Are Working Towards
The addition of these two gives you what you
are working towards achieving in this life, it
is always part of your character, but becomes
increasingly so as life advances and has
therefore greater relation to the second half
The discovery of the 'Reality' is due to the
research done by Dr Juno Jordan at the
California Institute of Numerical Research.
Through twenty-five years of research Dr

Jordan proved the principles of names and
numbers. His teachings have been my own
unfailing source of knowledge, although I
must admit that on one tenet I do not agree
and that is in the use of the birth number as
the birth force instead of the destiny number.
We can see that Anne Jones's deepest
desire is for security and a practical
approach to all the problems of her life (4
ambition, 8 destiny).
Although she has a pleasant, friendly,
talkative personality (3 impression) giving
the impression she has not a care in the
world, in her inmost self she is a most
practical, loyal and conscientious person
(22/4 ambition). However her 3 impression
may draw her to the more lighthearted and
easy-going people and to those who will let
her down or cause her pain especially in love,
for the 3 in often frivolous and socially
minded, but not very serious.
Although she can be the life and soul of the
party, note her 3 impression, she is not a
really sociable or adaptable person. In a
close relationship she will be receptive,
secretive, 'choosey' and introverted, the 7
She will not make many close friends,
although she may have many acquaintances,
but once she has made you a friend, you will
find her loyal and self-sacrificing.
The Planes of Expression
We now have to deal with other factors
which give us more comprehensive insights
into a person's temperament and aptitudes.
These are referred to as the planes of
Taking our previous example:
1 5+ 6395+6 5 =6+5+11 = 22 =
ANNE LOUISE JONES 4 = Ambition
5 5+3 1+151 =1+4+7 = 12 =
3 = Impression
4 Ambition + 3 Impression = 7 Expression
we total these, keeping in mind the meanings
of the numbers.
In numberology, man's nature is divided
1 . The physical numbers 4 and 5.
2. The emotional numbers 2, 3 6.
3. The mental numbers 1 and 8.
4. The intutional numbers 7 and 9.
The name is set out like this :
ANNE LOUISE JONES

Then we find 4 x Is

ANALYSE YOUR NUMBERSCOPE 63
We can now formulate another little
Physical == 6 (only 5s)
Emotional = 4 (addition of 2s, 3s and 6s)
Mental = 4 (addition of 1 s and 8s)
Intutional = 1 (addition of 7s and 9s)
As mentioned earlier, the frequency with
which numbers appear in a name, and their
lack, both tell a tale and are very important
in assessing temperament and aptitude.
Life will put us in the way of making up
our lacks, yet we operate easily on the planes
where we have many numbers, sometimes
too easily. A high number on any plane gives
the possibility of success and shows an
outstanding individual talent along the lines
of the number and its plane of expression.
One exception really is the 5, for this is
such a restless number, and overbalance of 5s
can vitiate success and make for Jack of all
trades and master of none.
Interpretation of Anne's Numberscope
We see that this is exactly what we have here
on Anne Louise's numberscope. She lacks
the balance of 2s, 4s, 8s and 7s. Even if these
are found in other parts of the chart, she will
still be lacking to a certain extent.
The lack of 4s shows that she does not like
detail, and is not too keen on hard work and
The lack of 2s and quite a few 1 s shows she
is an individualist, has her own ideas and will
stick to them, but does not find co-operation
with others easy. This is again borne out by
the expression number.
She has to learn organization and
judgement as well as attention to practical
values^ she may either fear poverty and
incline to miserliness or else be completely
Her destiny number shows that the
business realm and commercial activity are
her best bet vocationally, so to succeed she
will have to develop her ability to deal with
practical worldly things.
Where in the planes of expression you find a
7 or the lack of it you can be pretty sure that
your subject represses his emotions. This is
bad for nerves, health and ordinary general
human intercourse. There is a shrinking
from expressing the motions for fear of
finding the affections repulsed or treated
A barrier is built up between the self and
other human beings, the person is lonely and
may seek outlets in other ways such as drink,
drugs, promiscuity or ill health.
The advice to be given is, 'Don't take
yourself too seriously. Yes, you may be hurt,
but you'll be in the same boat as every other
human being. Don't let pride and coldness of
heart turn you into an "icebox". '
ANALYSE YOUR NUMBERSCOPE 65
Now we will just analyse the birthdate and
the influence of the birthday.
8 - an Extrovert Number
We have already said that the 8 was a c mind'
number and one related to the conquest of
the material place, an extrovert number.
This will not be an easy road for Anne Jones,
for she is introvert in 'expression' and so will
be unlikely to like the noise, dash and rush of
the day by day commercial world.
However, Anne could go into an
organization which had to do with the arts,
creative work of any kind such as music, and
she will not mind taking responsibility, for
she has two 6s on her physical plane.
Anne can speak well, the 6 has to do with
the voice, so she would quite like a job which
gave her enough scope for variety, many
people coming in and out; she has six 5s on
the planes, little routine and some time to
She would cope with others pleasantly,
would like nice surroundings and a fairly free
hand, she would make an excellent P.R.O.
for she is able to keep her mouth shut (7 on
the expression), and be diplomatic and
tactful (2 on birthday).
Anne can also carry responsibility and
provided she got the encouragement and
thanks that her nature requires to do her best
(6 on the physical plane), she would be
happy, especially if her work was well
enough paid to allow her to bank some of her
money, although with that number of 5s on
the planes of expression she will very likely
learn economy the hard way, for the 5s and
the 3s are the spendthrifts of the chart.
Her difficulties in life will come from the
divergence between the 7 of her expression
and the 8 of her destiny.
The 8 will tend to push her out into
circulation and the 7 will hold her back,
making her reticent and secretive.
4 - Ambition Number
However, she has a 4 ambition number in
tune with her other business numbers, the 2
of her birthday and the 8 of her destiny.
At the same time, her physical
attractiveness and her charm of manner,
indicated by her physical plane 6 will enable
her to function in an outgoing manner and
attract to herself in love and friendship those
who can make her happy if she will curb the
moodiness of her 7 expression and use it
positively to enable her to see beneath the
surface of the people and situations she will
have to meet in life.
As a last note on the analysis of the name
and birthdate, it is wise to remember that
any number can be used positively or
negatively. The positive expression of a
number harmonizes with a situation, the
negative expression is always separative,
limited and selfish.
When laying out a chart, work everything
ANALYSE YOUR NUMBERSCOPE 67
out on one sheet of paper, including future
indications which we shall be going into in
the next chapter, for then you will be able to
assess the present reaction of the person from
the natal data and the existing indications.
AND WHAT ABOUT YOUR FUTURE?
When you have drawn up the birth chart and
you want a fairly quick assessment of
whether the life will be easy or difficult, draw
up a sort of box arrangement rather like the
game of noughts and crosses which, no
doubt, some of you used to play as children.
The following diagram shows which number
Along the top line are arranged the
numbers 3, 6, 9 from left to right.
Along the second horizontal line are
arranged the numbers 2, 5, 8 from left to
Along the third horizontal line are
arranged the numbers 1, 4, 7 from left to
You will notice that along the horizontal
columns the numbers are 3 degrees apart in
mathematical value. This implies many
problems and a hard road to gain success.
Along the vertical columns the numbers are 1
and 2 degrees apart. There is little stretch
between them. This shows that life will not
AND WHAT ABOUT YOUR FUTURE? 69
be too hard. Not so much effort will have to
be put in to make a success of life. You'll get
Along the diagonal column of 1, 5, 9 the
stretch is 4 points or degrees. There will be
ease of accomplishment, perhaps too much
ease, too little struggle to bring out strength
of character. Downfall through taking life too
easy, depending too much on others.
In this quick look only the numbers of the
birthdate are used. For example we have a
birthdate of 6 February 1950. So we put out
The 6 goes in the second column on the
first line. The 2 on the first column of the
Taking the numbers now of the year, we
put 1 on the bottom line left-hand corner.
The 9 in the right-hand top corner and the 5
in the central diagonal.
As you can see at a glance, this person will
have a relatively easy life. Things come to
him; he does not have to make much effort.
His danger is of taking it too easily; of
wasting both his time and his money on easy
living - notice that the birthdate itself adds
up to the 5, the spendthrift and the lover of
change and variety.
Your Future Indications
Now for the future and your means of looking
at your future indications.
There are important divisions of life known
technically as 'pinnacles'. These are
1 . First subtracting the destiny number from
This gives the period of the first pinnacle.
The first pinnacle number is found by the
addition of the day and month and has a
duration of nine years.
2. Find the second pinnacle by adding together
the day and year of birth. It too has a
duration of nine years.
3. Now add together the addition of the
previous two and this gives the third pinnacle]
also of nine years duration.
4. To find the fourth and final pinnacle, add the
month and year of birth. This together with
the first pinnacle is the longest and lasts from
the end of the third pinnacle to the end of life.
The pinnacles show the kind of attitude and
the type of experience to be encountered over
the period of time they last.
Naturally in every case the additions must
be reduced to a single digit. A further
refinement is given by the potential shown by
the day, month and year of birth. These are
called cycles, and they add a little more
knowledge since they show the environment
and the situation, or background to the
AND WHAT ABOUT YOUR FUTURE? 71
The first cycle is the month number and
lasts as long as the first pinnacle.
The second cycle is the date number and
lasts through the second and third pinnacles
and the first nine years of the fourth
pinnacle. This is called the cycle of productivity
and is considered the most important as it is
usually the most active period of a person's
Besides the cycles, pinnacles and personal
year number, which is found by adding the
addition of the day and month of birth to the
universal year number (addition of digits of
the year), we also have the c weak links' in a
person's character, pitfalls which can ruin
the life or take away from success and
These are called challenges, and are found
by subtraction from the cycle numbers.
These too run concurrently with the
From these indications and others which it
is not possible to discuss in a book of this
size, a pretty fair idea of the life pattern and
trends ahead can be found.
As these instructions have been pretty
condensed I will give an example of the way
in which the future can be laid out according
to these guidelines.
To interpret these you can use also the
meanings given to the various numbers in
earlier chapters, although I do give a
Numbers always have the same meanings,
only their position on the chart or the
progressed chart change. In order to be a
good analyst you have to understand their
meanings and apply these with
understanding and intuition to the whole
chart including the birth chart.
No indication stands on its own, one
person will not react in the same way to the
stresses set up by similar vibrations. How
they react will depend upon the strength or
weakness of the number (characteristic) in
their birth chart, so I advise making the
whole work out on one sheet so that you
could easily check up this strength or

Now we will take an example of a progress
chart to see the future trends ahead.
the birthdate is 21.4.1942 = 14 = 5 destiny.
Find the Pinnacles
1 . Subtract destiny number from 36 to find
time of first pinnacle. 36 - 5 = 3 1 .
So first pinnacle = up till age 31.
2. Find first pinnacle by adding together the
day and month of birth. 3+4 = 7 = first
3. Add the day and year, 3 + 7 = 10= 1. This
is the second pinnacle.
4. Add the addition of the previous two in order to
find the third pinnacle.
AND WHAT ABOUT YOUR FUTURE? 73
5. Add the month and year, 4 + 7 = 11 to
find the fourth pinnacle.
Find the Cycles
1 . The first cycle, which goes the length of the
first pinnacle, is the month number.
2. The second cycle, which is the date number,
runs through the second and third
pinnacles and for nine years of the fourth
pinnacle. The year number is the cycle for
the rest of the fourth pinnacle.
Find the Challenges (the weaknesses which
will be highlighted at particular times in the
1 . Subtract the day and month of birth for
the first challenge. This runs concurrently with
first pinnacle and cycle. 3 - 4 = 1 so 1 is the
2. Subtract the day and year numbers
(always the higher from the lower of course)
and so we take 3 - 7 = 4 so 4 is the number of
the second pinnacle challenge.
3 Subtract the number of the first challenge
from that of the second or vice versa,
whichever is the higher, and you have the
challenge Tor the third pinnacle.
4. Subtract the number of the year from that
of the month for the fourth challenge to last till
the end of life.
So diagrammatically this can be expressed
21 .4 1942
Birthdate = ^ 4 — 7— = 14 = 5 destiny.
Cycle Pinnacle Challenge
From birth to age 31=4 7 1
From age 32 to age 41= 3 1 4
From age 42 to age 51 = 3 8 3
From age 52 to end = 3 for 9 11 3
of life years then
7 for rest
So the first and last pinnacles are the
longest, the others being of nine years'
duration, and indicate the environment and
experiences which will form part of the life.
Short Explanation of the Meaning of the

individual and at the head of things. Active

2. Work is to be found with others. Do not
stand alone, co-operation and diplomacy are

literary, creative or social abilities.

4. A practical period when it will be difficult

the duties of working or building for the

and uncertainty, but a lively, interesting
period of experience.
6. Usually a time when the individual has
the opportunity to marry, build a home, have
children. Relatives and responsibility are the
7. An Unturned' period of spiritual and
mental growth. Soul development. Can be a
lonely time and hard on the health. Good for
8. A good financial period if effort and
discrimination are used. Good position and
responsibility' within an organization
9. A period of opportunity to learn and
understand a great deal about life.
Disappointing on- the personal level in
connection with love, money or friendship. A
hard lesson to be learnt to live for others
11. A time of successful forwarding of the
ideals. Can apply to self or children who have
22. A time when it will be possible to further
schemes of vision and expansion, perhaps on
an international scale.
The meaning of the cycles and the
challenges is similar. In the case of the
challenge it indicates that the person who,
for instance, has a 3 challenge must bring out
their creative and joyful side, they must
express themselves creatively. Failure to do
so will militate against happiness.
Likewise with the meaning of the cycles. A
4 cycle on a first pinnacle will indicate some
hard work, study, getting down to it at school
Every year a person's number vibration
changes, and as mentioned earlier this is
found by adding the day and month of your
birth to the universal year number.
The year of 1971 was a 9 year for 1 +9 + 7
+ 1=9. To find your own year which, taken
in conjunction with your natal indications
and the indications of the pinnacles, cycle
and challenge, will show you what to expect
of the year: you simply add your day and
month of birth to 9. A person born on 5 May
will add 5 + 5 = 1, so in 1971 she was
beginning a new cycle of living necessitating
organizing well and making important
decisions which will affect her future for the
next nine years.
We can also look at any particular month
and see what it promises for us. To find your
personal month, add the number of your
personal year to the calendar month.
LOVE, MONEY AND SUCCESS
The magic of Numbers can provide you with
valuable information about your attitudes to
love, money and success. The procedure is
Concentrate on the word you have chosen
(LOVE, MONEY or SUCCESS). Then
spontaneously select in your mind any three
numbers up to nine (you can include eleven
and twenty-two if you like). Add them up
and reduce to a single number (unless they
come to eleven or twenty-two). Now check
your number for its interpretation in the list
of number totals given below.
Remember that you must be relaxed
before you undertake this procedure and that
your choice of three numbers must be
This implies that you are sincere in feeling
and that you are looking for the ONE person,
the right one. Love must be romantic and far
removed from the everyday world. Caution:
you could be a bit selfish, which would
militate against your happiness.
You look for security first of all, this is
because you want a home of your own, a
family and children whom you can love and
protect. You hate to do the chasing, want
your love to come to you, but remember it
does not do to be too diffident; you could
Lighthearted is your attitude to love, you do
not want to settle down, you want to enjoy
yourself and sample what is offering. This
may be a temporary feeling, nevertheless it is
true for the moment. Do enjoy yourself.
Your attitude to love is steady and loyal, you
consider love as an extension of your attitude
to friendship in general, that of stability and
steadfastness. You will not have many love
affairs in your life as you are the persistent
type. You need a sincere and thrifty mate.
You are someone who needs a family so you
would not consider marrying someone who
did not care for children. You also like
romance and travel, which may mean that
you are attracted to a mate from afar.
Through your love affairs and in your
marriage you want to learn a lot and so need
someone who loves family, travel, education
and physical fulfilment.
LOVE, MONEY AND SUCCESS 79
You are the domestic type. First and
foremost you want a home and a kind
understanding mate. The practical aspects of
marriage will always be important to you
and you'll make sure that this is all arranged
before you make the marriage arrangements.
Your attitude is mature, loving and
reasonable, so you should lead a happy life.
You are selective and discriminating in love
and friendship, something of a loner as you
look for perfection and the tiniest little thing
can put you off. You are not convinced of the
benefits of marriage or close relationship and
your attitude is perhaps a little too critical
Your attitude to love includes the need for
money. You are not one to say 'let's starve in
a garret'. Love is very important to you, but
for you love and money must go together. Do
not stress the riches side too much or you
might find yourself married to someone
whose career comes first.
You have a giving nature and feel that love
should expand your horizons and allow you
to put some of your ideals into practice. You
need someone with as wide and loving a
heart as your own.
You are attracted to the unconventional type
of mate. You feel that the right person will
come along, that this is part of your Destiny
pattern. Do not be too passive about this, you
need to mix like anyone else and cannot sit
and wait for your lover to come to you out of
the blue. -
You are the idealistic type and will not find it
too easy to find the right mate as your early
attitudes to sex may have become rather
fixed and rigid, so making adjustment to
partnership difficult. Loosening up on
inhibitions will help you to fii)d happiness.
If this is your total, then money in itself is not
of great interest to you, but you like to obtain
it in original ways. It indicates that you gain

If this is your total, you think of money as
luck, you tend to be a bit of a gambler and
rather extravagant. In fact you find it hard to
take money seriously. However, you could be
lacking in consideration moneywise where
others are concerned and, for instance, forget
to pay your bills, as to you money matters
are taken so lightheartedly. You are likely to
be lucky, but remember those who are not.
If this is your total, you take money seriously
and are prepared to work to obtain it.
However, you have a tendency to be insecure
where your finances are concerned and to be
rather pessimistic about your chances of
obtaining enough money. You have to work

If this is your total, you like to use your
money to finance your trips and you hope
that these will involve you in romantic
encounters. To find security you need to find
some endeavour along the lines of
communication such as writing, selling,
being an agent or something in publishing.
These are suggestions which might appeal to
you and bring you security without tying you
down too much. Money and romance are
likely to be yours.
If you do not possess sufficient money you
tend to worry, so to you money is necessary
as an antidote to your own feelings of
insecurity. You feel you need it for any
worthwhile venture such as marriage, travel
or any other enterprise. But you like to feel
you'll always have enough money to help out
those you love.
If this is your total, money and its handling is
something of a mystery to you. You are not
very practical or capable when it comes to
coping with more than a few pounds. You
may gain money from unexpected sources
and out of the blue. You need to try and be
more practical in your budgeting.
You are at ease in handling money and in
managing your budget, as this comes
naturally to you. You have big ideas and
tend to judge people by their appearance of
affluence or the opposite. You can be
deceived this way as things are not always
what they seem. Your desire to acquire
money will ensure that you have plenty.
You hate to be short of cash. In some way

money, and a sufficiency of it, means that
you feel sure of yourself and confident. You
need it to fulfil your purposes and to express
yourself as you would want. You always aim
high and on the whole you'll succeed.
If this is your total you like to obtain your
money in unusual ways and you are
singularly influenced by what others think of
yourln fact your need for money stems from
what you want others to think of you. How
they see you is most important to your own
sense of security. You'll gain most through
progressive techniques and perhaps through
the occult or alternative medicine.
If this is your total, you like a broad view
where money is concerned and you see it as a
means for achieving success in big projects,
probably along commercial lines, for this is a
good field for you.
You need to be practical, then to stretch
your practicality a bit in order to achieve
your dreams of success.
If your total is ONE you are not the type of
person to take the broad highway in life. To
seek success you will take up something new,
independent, progressive - and succeed.
If this is your total, you are not exactly a go-
getter. You like your leisure and pleasure too
much. However, success could come to you
through cultural fields, such as music, art,
You are naturally attracted to success, but
having a vivid imagination you can explore
many fields to achieve your ends and this
implies you may scatter your talents,
energies and forces too much. It is wise for
you to limit your scope, to finish one project
before you start another.
If this is your total, you. are one of the most
practical of persons: where success is
concerned you are prepared to work for it.
Your attitude is realistic, but you can take
success so seriously that you have little time
You are a creative type and look for your
success along the lines of travel and
excitement. The communication of ideas is
important to your success. If your luck holds
you could make yourself a household name
as a writer, journalist or television
LOVE, MONEY AND SUCCESS
If this is your total, then you do not desire
any spectacular success. Your happiness is
based upon success in the home, family, and
in love. You are willing to let the rest go by if
you can obtain these blessings. You are likely
to do so.
You look for success through the realization
of a dream partner who will share your
ideals, hopes, joys and sorrows and with
whom, of course, you will achieve success.
Yours is the perfect dream of complete
perfection. A difficult ideal to realize, but if
you do you'll certainly be a lucky person.
If this is your total, to you success is M ONET
with a capital C M\ Your heart's desire lies
with material things, clothes, cars, homes,
good food and drink and the wherewithal to
buy all these. You need to know how to share
some of your 'goodies' with others and then
you'll be happier and more fulfilled. You are
a go-getter and likely to succeed.
If this is your total, you aim for international
fame. You aim high and can best achieve
success through the entertainment world, the
creative arts or through your dedication to
humanitarian ideals. You can make it.
You dislike the beaten track and aim to
achieve success in fields other than the usual
ones. Actually, you are not likely to be too
successful in any settled, well tried field. You
could succeed in television, computers, ESP
work or in any of the occult or New Age
If this is your total, then you consider that
your success lies in your own personal
approach, persuasive tactics and actual
magnetism. So you could well succeed in any
field of selling, particularly along broad lines,
as you can have the Midas touch.
If you are prepared to start all over again if
you find you are barking up the wrong tree,
you are sure to be successful in the long run.
LOVE WITHOUT TEARS

relationships. We sink or swim according to
the quality of our relationships, and
relationships depend upon our ability to

but in order to find this out it is necessary to
do out the full charts for both people and also
to look at their present and future trends as
discussed in the last chapter.
Broadly speaking there are three rules
which show with what ease we will get along

concord and so are similars.
There can be mutual understanding which
can make a lasting friendship, partnership,
marriage or collaboration. Both will learn a
great deal from the other, both will develop,
improve and mature.
But if you are seriously interested, or shall
we say when you are seriously interested, you
must compare the two charts and study the
pinnacles and cycles of life as well. On the
whole if you are seriously interested it might
be wise to get an expert numerologist to
assess the pros and cons for you.
Another factor which will help you assess
whether you and another person will get on
well together is whether either is basically a
positive, outgoing type or an intuitional,
more creative person.
Positive and Negative
To help you assess this, numbers are divided
into positive and negative. It is easy to
remember that even numbers give positive,
objective and basically extroverted
characteristics. The odd numbers give
negative, subjective, intuitional, feminine and
So when the even numbers predominate in
a name and birthdate, it denotes a more
negative, subjective, imaginative type.
Expressed in a nutshell, the formers are
'doers', the latter 'thinkers'.
This, as you will realize, is too facile, for
there are always various shades of white from
grey to black and no one is entirely
introverted or extroverted, but in general you
will find there is some penchant towards one
or the other.
For a predominantly introverted girl to get
hooked up with a predominantly extroverted
male could produce problems of
communication, and so jeopardize the
relationship unless both care enough to work
Many people are interested in whether
they will marry young, older or not at all.
Others are interested in whether they will
remarry, and these are two separate
The number of marriage is 6, and when this
number is predominant in the chart, that is
either as the expression number or the
destiny number, it is hard to see how these
people are going to escape early marriage
unless there are many introverted numbers
to make the time at which they marry later
LOVE WITHOUT TEARS 91
than you would normally expect.
The years which are important for
marriage are those personal years which add
up to 3, 5, 6. The latter is a year which is
more promising for a settled, secure future.
The 5 brings a more jazzy vibration,
tremendous physical attraction and
sometimes rather a love/hate scene.
If a girl has a 6 expression, a 6 on her
pinnacle and comes to a 6 personal year, she
is more than likely to marry.
To consider remarriage, take the
expression number into consideration. If this
is an introvert number and the pinnacle
number is also, then there is less likelihood of
remarriage. A change of pinnacle will alter
the picture perhaps.
Sometimes people marry late in life due to
responsibilities or lack of money and
security. To see whether they will, you have
to look and see whether the pinnacle number
is a 6 or a 2, and if so you can say fairly
confidently that they will not be alone in
their later years.
This is particularly so if the reality
number, the addition of the destiny number
and the expression, is a 6 or a 2.
In fact, with a 6 on the reality, a true and
lasting love may not come until later in
life, when at last the right person comes
The thing is that numerology can help you
to understand other people. Although much
has had to be condensed into a small space,
and so it has naturally been impossible to go
into the subject in great depth, even with the
pointers given here I hope that perhaps some
understanding will have been given as to the
basic differences in our characters and in our
destinies and ways of life. Anything that
contributes to better understanding and so
better relationships in depth and quality is
worth looking into.
'Should I Change My Name? 5
Lastly, a question often asked is, 'Should I
change my name?' The answer is yes, if it
will help you to succeed in a particular field.
As you now know the meanings of the
different number vibrations, you will know
that certain numbers are good for business,
certain numbers good for creative matters.
Who has not heard of the singer who wilted
away in the wilderness for seventeen years
before changing his name and gaining
If you want -to succeed in a
creative/literary field, your name change
should be to a 3.6.9. If it is business success
you are after, you should go for an 8.
However, it is advisable to take the destiny
and birthday into consideration so it might
be wise to consult a professional if you feel
you want or need a change of name.
Remember, though, that this does not wash
out the original name. This vibration always

stands. The new name adds something of the
quality which you need.
Finally, I hope you enjoy your study of
numbers and find it great fun.
