&About your Personal Reading

This reading was composed for you personally, and is based on your full name at birth, your date of birth, and the name you use to introduce yourself. Please check your birth data on the title page to make sure the names and date of birth used are correct.

If you have two or more middle names or last names, you may find the names strung together. This is necessary to make Transit and Essence cycles function correctly. For example, the name John Patrick Henry Hancock would appear on the title page as John PatrickHenry HANCOCK.

It is common for certain cycles to repeat for several years, such as Transit and Essence cycles, Challenges, and others. When this is the case your reading will refer you to an earlier description of this cycle. It will not print the same cycle repeatedly.

Each chapter starts with a short introduction telling you where this particular number is found and how it affects you. This is followed by the number itself. Often, you will find a double digit number followed by a single digit. The meaning of your number is then explained in easy to read language. You don't need to know anything about numerology to be able to enjoy and benefit from this reading.

I hope you will enjoy your reading.

Your Life Path (sometimes called Destiny) is derived from your birthdate. Your Life path is the road you are traveling. It reveals the opportunities and challenges you will face in life. Your Life Path number is the single most important information available in your Personality Chart!

&Your Life Path is 17/8

You are gifted with natural leadership and the capacity to accumulate great wealth. You have great talent for management in all areas of life, especially in business and financial matters. You understand the material world; you intuitively know what makes virtually any enterprise work. Your talent lies not with the bookkeeping or petty management, but with the greater vision, it's purpose, and long range goals. You are a visionary and a bit reckless. You possess the ability to inspire people to join you in your quest, but often they are incapable of seeing what you see. Therefore, those around you need your continual guidance, inspiration, and encouragement. You must prod them into action and direct them along the lines of your vision. You attract financial success more than any other Life Path, but effort is required. Your challenge in life is to achieve a high degree of detachment, to understand that power and influence must be used for the benefit of mankind. Those born with the Number 8 Life Path who do not understand the real and relative value of money are bound to suffer the consequences of greed; they run the risk of losing it all! You must learn to bounce back from failures and defeats. You have the character and resilience of a true survivor. It is not uncommon for a person with your Life Path to experience major reverses, including bankruptcies, financial failure, but you also have the talent and the sheer guts to make more than one fortune, and build many successful enterprises. More than most people, your failures in marriage can be extremely expensive for you. Despite the difficulties that life presents, you will experience the satisfaction that comes from material wealth and the power that

Page 2

comes with it. Business, finance, real estate, law, science (particularly history, archeology, and physics), publishing, and the management of large institutions are among the vocational fields that suit you best. You are naturally attracted to positions of influence and leadership -- Politics, social work, and teaching are among the many other areas where your abilities can shine. You are a good judge of character, which aids you well in attracting the right people to you. Most 8s like large families and sometimes tend to keep others dependent longer than necessary. Although jovial in nature you are not demonstrative in showing your love and affection. The desire for luxury and comfort is especially strong in you. Status is very important. You must be careful to avoid living above your means. Your Life Path treads that dangerous ground where power lies -- and can corrupt. You may become too self important, arrogant, and domineering, thinking that your way is the only way. This leads inevitably to isolation and conflict. The people you run the risk of hurting most are those you love, your family and friends. Be careful of becoming stubborn, intolerant, overbearing, and impatient. These characteristics may be born early in the life of an 8 Life Path, who often learn these negative traits after suffering under a tyrannical parent or a family burdened by repressive religious or intellectual dogmas. Those with the 8 Life Path usually possess a strong physique, which is a symptom of their inherent strength and resiliency.


The day you were born bears great significance in understanding who you are and where your talents lie. The day of birth indicates some special talent you possess. It is a gift to you that will help you along your Life's Path. Your day of birth is one of your four core numbers -- the Life Path, Expression, Heart's Desire being the other three. It is the least significant of the four core numbers, but perhaps the most finite, in that it reveals a specific ability you possess in a marked degree.

Page 3

&Your Birthday is 27

You are a born leader, an efficient manager, capable of organizing and inspiring others. You are especially talented in the areas of politics, religion, art, and law. You are highly creative and have an excellent understanding of people. You are broadminded and should be educated in several different fields, particularly the arts. Many great artists are found under this number. You tend to be a late bloomer and must be willing to take your time before choosing a profession. You need experience and exposure to many different types of people before you find the one area in which you will specialize. You can relate to people in all walks of life. You will do quite a bit of traveling and go through many changes. At bottom, you have a great dream for humanity. You want to improve the conditions of people, whether they are in your community, state, country, or the world at large. This is where your deepest satisfaction lies -- with performing some task that will benefit others. You are able to express your feelings well, though a bit dramatically at times. You have a calm and even aristocratic appearance. However, beneath it there is a sense of frustration with not having received your due in life -- either from parents, co-workers, or your community. Your challenge is to learn acceptance and forgiveness. There is an element of sacrifice in your life. You need to let go of all negative attachments. Any thoughts of revenge will backfire badly against you. You need to employ your spiritual and philosophical outlook in all matters in which the balance seems to have been struck against you. You attract money from all work that is service oriented. The more you do for others, the more you receive - - spiritually and materially -- in return.

The Expression number reveals the talents, abilities, and shortcomings that were with you when you entered your human body. Your name, and the numbers derived from it, reveal your development, as well as the talents and issues you will be working with during this life. For those for whom reincarnation is an accepted philosophy, the vibration of your full name can be seen as the totality of your personal evolution, the experiences, talents, and wisdom accumulated over many life times. Every experience, no matter how great or small, along this evolutionary path has influenced your development, and brought you to your current state of being. The Expression is your being; the Life Path is the major lesson you are attempting to learn this time around. Time allows the gradual unfoldment of your personality. By reading the Expression number below, you will come to understand your basic nature and the abilities and issues inherent in your being.

&Your Expression is 11

Yours is the most highly charged Expression number of all. You are like a lightning rod, attracting powerful ideas, intuitions, and even psychic information like unpredictable bolts. You are a powerful presence without any awareness on your part of having personal power. You are a channel for higher vibrations. But in order to be emotionally and psychologically at peace, you must learn to control that flow of energy. You possess a bridge between the unconscious and the conscious. The trouble is that the unconscious is an infinite resource, while consciousness by definition is a limited arena. The two are therefore at odds until they can learn to live in harmony with each other. This is where control comes in. Until you are able to control the flow of energy from this infinite source, you may feel like a victim of its whimsy, thrown about by emotional turmoil and nervous tensions. You have always sensed that you are different, but it was an undefinable feeling. You are enormously sensitive and aware, especially as a child. This made you vulnerable to all conflicts and painful situations. For most of your upbringing, however, you did not realize that other people did not possess the same

Page 5

sensitivity, nor did they see the same things you were seeing. This caused a great reservoir of emotion that was dammed up behind an inability to express your feelings, even to yourself. For this reason, most 11 Expressions have a difficult childhood. Your extreme sensitivity made you very shy as a child. This usually manifests in adulthood as hesitation and acute vulnerability. You are very careful about sharing your feelings with others and choosing your friends. You compensated for your sense of separation in childhood by creating an elaborate fantasy world. You daydreamed more than other children. You have a lively imagination and even in adulthood have a hard time separating reality from fantasy. Your challenge is to bring forth your primitive, earthy strength. You need to be grounded in order to deal with your lightning bolts. The more you are able to call upon your inherent human strength, the greater your capacity to take advantage of your extremely sensitive awareness. Once this is accomplished, your antagonist becomes your benefactor. You are highly emotional and dependent upon relationships. Emotionally, you go up and down with the fortunes of your love life. You are idealistic, impractical, and at times disorderly. You are often unrealistic in your expectations. Your reasons for doing things are usually born of a mixture of logic, emotion, and intuition, which can rarely be explained satisfactorily to your more rational associates. The 11 Expression is the number most dependent upon other core numbers in your chart for insight into your vocation. The 11 charges every area it enters, but it needs a grounding vocation and discipline to be effective. A balanced 11 is one of the most unique and impressive of all people. It is gifted with insight and illumination, which it can transmit to others. This makes you a natural teacher in whatever area you enter.

Page 6


The influence of the short name is minor in comparison to your full name. Interestingly, the short name often compensates in some way for numbers (and their related characteristics) that are missing or out of balance in the full name. For instance, a number missing in the full name may show up prominently in the short name; or a number (or numbers) that appear in excess in the full name can be compensated for in the short name. If a name change takes place later in life through marriage or for professional reasons, it adds or subtracts certain qualities. It can also focus and intensify existing characteristics or talents that may be latent. As a rule, we recommend that you don't change your name on impulse. Marriage, of course, does not leave much room for choice, although more and more people are hyphenating their names or staying with their maiden name. However, if you must change your name (for professional reasons, for example), try to choose a name already in your family and thus connected to you through your ancestors. Those characteristics are already present in your lineage, which makes the new name easier to assimilate into your personality. Whenever you consider changing your name, the best guide is your own intuition.

&Your Minor Expression is 8

Your short name provides you with more leadership abilities and business sense. It encourages you to use more power in your relationships and directs you to higher standards of success. Your Minor Expression number makes you a better judge of character. You are more realistic in your evaluation of others and their potential. You are not easily fooled. You must be willing to apply more effort toward all your endeavors. You likely demand more of yourself. Your abilities as a manager, organizer and administrator are enhanced. You are competitive and determined. You are more likely to initiate your grander plans and visions. (Check your Hidden Passion number for an overabundance of 8s -- three or more -- which can make you obsessed with the accumulation

Page 7

of money and power. You will have to work harder to establish a greater balance between personal desire and simple generosity.)


Your Heart's Desire is the inner you. It shows your underlying urge, your true motivation. It reveals the general intention behind many of your actions. Consequently, it dramatically influences the choices you make in life. The Heart's desire is seen as part of the larger picture, called the core numbers, which includes the Life Path, Expression, Day you were born, and Personality. But each points to a different aspect of you. The Expression number reveals your talents and abilities, and your general direction in life. The Life Path is the central lesson you came into the world to learn. The Day you were born is very closely connected to Life Path. It reveals specific talents you possess, which will be helpful to you in dealing with your Life Path. These talents tend to come to fuller expression after the age of 28. The Personality reveals how people tend to see you. It also demonstrates what characteristics you are projecting to the world. The Heart's Desire demonstrates the identity of the soul that joined the earth -- you, the spiritual being.

&Your Heart's Desire is 13/4

You like to live a stable, well organized life. You dislike sudden changes. You prefer orderliness in all things. You have a systematic mind that is reflected in everything you do. You can establish and maintain a routine. You are exacting with details and quite thorough. You like to carefully analyze a problem and then tackle it in a logical and practical approach. You want to be dependable, a rock of strength and an example of discipline for others. Work is central to your life, but you may have a tendency to overdo it; you can easily become a workaholic if you're not careful. You have a great deal of energy and can accomplish a lot. You want a family and you are a good parent. You may carry the discipline and the need for orderliness too far, especially in

Page 8

your family, making children and spouse feel oppressed and limited. Flexibility is your key to harmony and balance in life. For you, structure is more important than freedom, which you tend to interpret as chaos. But others do not have your need for well defined systems, in fact, they may feel deeply inhibited and uncomfortable with it. The peace you get from orderliness may represent a prison to someone else. You need and want much love, but you are not very demonstrative. You can be a little rigid and stubborn. You are honest and unpretentious. You detest liars and affectations. You can be very determined and tenacious. You are the bedrock of any enterprise. You have the courage to go into the nitty gritty of a problem and come up with a solution. Try not to lose sight of the larger picture and dream while you plumb the depths of the bottom line.


Your feelings about your shortened name are different from your full name. It affects how you feel about yourself; it changes your identity slightly. This alternation in identity affects how we express ourselves to others. It allows other characteristics to come forward from our being. Numerology can make clear to us what those characteristics are. The Minor Heart's Desire stimulates wishes and ambitions already present in your being. It provides a focus for these feelings. It intensifies an aspect of your nature already present in you.

&Your Minor Heart's Desire is 7

Your shortened name increases your desire to study, focus, and specialize in one particular field. It increases your need for privacy, contemplation, and meditation. You turn inward more and reflect on your inner nature. You are also more likely to ponder the deeper questions of life. Your Minor Heart's Desire enhances your intelligence and ability to deal with abstract information. You may find yourself expressing

Page 9

a kind of off-beat humor, as well. Sevens are highly refined and intuitive. They do not take things at face value, but seek the depths of understanding.


Your Personality number indicates how others perceive you. This is no easy task. No one can be objective about himself or herself. Even our closest friends and relatives have trouble describing how they see us. Numerology gives us a general understanding of the image we are projecting. That image is called the Personality number.

&Your Personality is 16/7

You seem mysterious and different. People see you as serious and studious. You are highly independent and self- sufficient. Your acceptional intelligence and wisdom are quickly noticed, people respect you. You are not one to attract people on the basis of your warmth or compassion -- though you may be loaded with both -- but because of your obvious insight into life's mysteries. You are hard to get to know. You are often withdrawn. It is common for people to see your focus turn inside of yourself in the middle of a conversation. You have the makings of an intellectual and an aristocrat but you have to guard against arrogance and an attitude of, "I've got it all figured out". There have been periods in your life when you had little concern for your clothing or fashion, while at other times you are very aware of your clothing and use it to make a specific impression. You appear dignified no matter how you dress., but a well groomed seven with a touch of dash definitely has an advantage. Your confidence increases when you know you are well dressed. You are recognized as spiritual and religious, with your very own ideas regarding the purpose of life and the Creator. You are an inspired speaker, but only when discussing subjects that really interest you. Otherwise, you are not one for chatter. Your love of knowledge and wisdom shows.

Page 10


Your Maturity Number indicates your direction in life, and the kind of conditions you will find yourself in during your latter years. No matter what your present age, your life is being channeled in a specific direction that is leading toward some goal. That goal can be seen as a reward, or the fulfillment of a promise, that is implicit in your current efforts, often without your knowing it consciously. While the characteristics of this number are usually visible during childhood, we tend to lose sight of these aspects until later in life. But our lives are always being affected by this influence nonetheless. Your Maturity Number begins to have a more profound impact on your life after the age of 35. The influence of the number increases steadily as you grow older.

&Your Maturity is 10/1

As you mature, you will find yourself needing an increasing amount of independence and individuality. You will fight harder for the recognition and rewards you feel you deserve and will be less willing to accept failure or limitations in any form. Your drive and determination will grown as does your ability to take charge. If there are already several 1s in your chart, especially among the core numbers, you will have to strive to avoid becoming bossy, rigid, stubborn and selfish. A person who allows these characteristics to run free will become bullyish and lonely later in life. If there are not many 1s in your chart, the influence of the Maturity Number will help you to establish your independence and success. From this foundation, you will have an active, adventurous, and exciting latter part of life.

Page 11


The Bridge numbers in your chart are the numbers that indicate how you can make the relationship between the individual core numbers in your chart easier and more compatible. Bridge numbers have the potential to "close the gap" between the Life Path and Expression number, or the Heart's Desire and Personality number. In this chapter we will explain what you can do to make your talents, strengths, and specific abilities (Expression number) more easily available and fitting the needs of your main lesson(s), and expected direction of growth (Life Path).

&Your Life Path / Expression Bridge number is 6

This bridge can only be built through service, more involvement with family and community affairs, and a greater sense of responsibility. You should also allow your creativity to flow more freely. This bridge number results from the combinations 7 and 1, 8 and 2, or 9 and 3. To find which combination applies to you, check the single digit numbers of your Life Path (chapter 1), and your Expression (chapter 3) and see if they consist of those combinations.

Life Path 7 and Expression 1 or vice versa. The 7 and 1 mixture is generally harmonious, but the above mentioned advice is directed to this combination as well. This combination often creates eccentrics - people who are highly inventive and unconventional.

Life Path 8 and Expression 2 or vice versa. The 8 and 2 cause similar struggles, but are often recognizable in broken romantic relationships caused in part by over-sensitivity, criticism, a tendency to gossip, and large fluctuations in financial matters. The positive side of this combination is your innate ability to negotiate. Your are both the leader and the diplomat.

Life Path 9 and Expression 3 or vice versa. This is a very creative combination. You are an artist at heart, and you must live according to that. The difficulty here is

Page 12

in the suppression of talents, and the lack of serious application. The bright side reveals a true gift to inspire and motivate large groups of people. 7


Several Bridge numbers can be found in your chart. The Bridge number between the Life Path number and the Expression number was described earlier in your reading. The following Bridge number relates to your Heart's Desire number and your Personality number. This Bridge number, the Heart's Desire - Personality bridge, explains how you can make your deeper self -- your needs and desires, your true nature -- more aligned with the part of your personality others tend to recognize when they meet you. With a little exaggeration, you could say that your Personality number is somewhat like your mask. It is the more superficial you; a protective shield and a camouflage of the deeper you. You can easily imagine how much more comfortable, and less self-conscious, the experience of life becomes when your deeper and more real you is closer and more fitting to the personality you reveal on a day to day basis.

&Your Heart's Desire / Personality Bridge number is 3

Loosen up a bit. Have some fun; recharge your batteries. Be more generous to yourself. Communicate your deeper feelings without fear to those close to you. Be more creative, particularly in the areas of dancing, writing, acting, or poetry. Develop faith in yourself.


Numerology is based on the understanding that we enter life with certain strengths and weaknesses. Karmic lessons are areas that we are currently weak in and must be faced and worked on in this life. There can be more than one Karmic Lesson. These are indicated by the absence of certain numbers in your name.

Page 13

The letters and numbers of your name point to talents and abilities that you possess. These characteristics can be compared to a workshop in which certain tools are available to you. Missing numbers, those that are not represented in the letters in your name, imply tools that are unavailable, and must be learned and mastered during this lifetime. You may well recognize your Karmic Lessons as weaknesses you have learned to overcome in the course of your life, however, the challenges implied in your Karmic Lessons will continue to come up occasionally for the rest of your life.

&You have a Karmic Lesson 4

You feel confusion about your life's direction. You will have to establish a methodical and disciplined approach. You need to create a foundation for your life. Otherwise, you will feel lost and tossed about by change. You have trouble finding the work you do best. You tend to be somewhat impractical and disorganized. You look for the answers to life's problems outside yourself, rather than within. New jobs start off as The Answer, but do not have the same glamour for long. You quickly discover that the new work requires the same effort and perseverance, without the excitement you expected, which may cause you to give up too soon. Concentration and application need to be strengthened. The effects of this Karmic Lesson are diminished if you have at least one 4 among your core numbers (Life path, Birthday, Hearts Desire, Expression or Personality Number).


Your Hidden Passion reveals one or more special strengths and talents that you rely upon and are available to you. The Hidden Passion reveals strong characteristics, as well. It indicates much about the way you naturally behave. The Hidden Passion is the number most often represented in your full name.

Page 14

&Your Hidden Passion is 1

You have a strong drive to stand out. You have a great ambition and desire to accomplish. You are highly competitive and want to be the best and the first in everything you do. You are highly energetic and creative. You are capable of influencing and even dominating others. You have highly developed political skills, and can succumb to manipulation unless your ideals are high. Ironically, there are times when you lack confidence, especially at an earlier age, but you have the strength to overcome this obstacle. You are a survivor, a warrior, a leader. Many great athletes and politicians have this number as a Hidden Passion. Too many ones (6 or more in a name of average length), can make a person bullyish, aggressive, violent, even tyrannical.

&Your Hidden Passion is 5

You love travel, change, and new challenges. You are highly adaptable and versatile. You have a talent for languages, and are generally good with words. Writing, promotion, and public relations work suit you perfectly. You are sensual and a bit impulsive. You love to satisfy your senses, which can get you into trouble. Overindulgence in food, drink, sex, and drugs are common among people with too many 5s -- six or more. You are resourceful and original. You have a good sense of humor and a quick tongue. Your desire for freedom is extremely strong and it will take effort and discipline to stick with whatever it is you started. There is a tendency to give up a project or situation prematurely. You may be interested in too many things, which can make it hard for you to apply yourself to one area successfully. You are very unconventional. Commitment in relationships and your work is fundamental to your happiness. You may have a tendency to wander from person to person, job to job, making depth of relationship or deep expertise difficult.

Page 15


Each of us experiences life on four different levels: with our physical body; our mental faculty; our emotional makeup; and our intuition. Each of these areas has a specific means of perceiving information. The physical body is capable of touch, taste, pleasure, and pain. It provides us with a sense of the physical world. The mental body, like the emotional and intuitive natures, perceives the invisible worlds. Our minds deal with the world of thought. The heart, of course, is preoccupied exclusively with the world of emotion. Our feelings teach us many things about ourselves and about others. Finally, we have the capacity for direct contact with the higher realms by way of intuition. Intuitive insight comes in a flash. It is not rational -- that is the world of the mental plane -- but comes as if it were placed at the doorstep of our minds. Intuition, therefore, bypasses all effort. These four faculties exist in all of us. But each of us depends more on one or two of them for the bulk of our knowledge. Some of us are possessed by our senses, while others live almost exclusively in our hearts, or minds. Numerology indicates how we as individuals function on each plane. The letters of the alphabet are divided in four categories: physical, mental, emotional and intuitive. The proportion of each category in your name gives a good indication of which Planes of Expression are strongest in you, and which ones are weaker. These Planes of Expression can greatly help you to understand your talents and abilities.


Page 16

&Your Plane of Expression Physical is 6

You combine practicality and artistry. Many successful artists are found with this number on the Physical Plane. Teaching and healing come natural to you. Your appreciation of beauty and art is visible in your surroundings. You are an excellent marriage partner. Parenthood is very satisfying for you as is the simple act of service to anyone you come in contact with. You are a loving and emotional person. Also, you are very curious about the lives of others. This can get you into trouble, however, especially if you confuse service with interference. You are idealistic and imaginative.


&Your Plane of Expression Mental is 4

You are a fine planner with a good eye for details. You are very conscientious and practical. However, you can get lost in the details of a project and lose sight of the larger picture. You must learn tact and give others -- especially family members -- room to live according to their own standards. You can be somewhat domineering, especially when you are concerned about their general well-being.


&Your Plane of Expression Emotional is 39/3

You are very romantic. You are highly creative and imaginative. You fantasize about your perfect "other": a White Knight on a horse, or a beautiful princess. Your response to painful emotional situations -- especially in childhood -- was to create a fantasy world to which you escaped. You may still be doing that as an adult, perhaps to your detriment. Reality lacks the romance and

Page 17

excitement of your fantasies. You can be disorderly and disorganized, however. You can be rather moody. You likely have much artistic talent, especially in writing, acting, or singing.


&Your Plane of Expression Intuitive is 16/7

You have great intuition and insight in abstract and metaphysical matters. You seek a broad perspective on all intuitive matters. You like to provide scientific and rational support to all of your intutivive insights. You have an inventive mind and likely have a talent as a writer or composer.


Each of us responds to problems in our own way. Each of us experience a spectrum of responses, from withdrawal to emotional explosions. Your Balance Number provides direction on how you might best respond to difficult situations.

&Your Balance is 4

Try to have perspective and a more lighthearted attitude toward emotionally-charged issues. Control your anger. Discipline is your strength. Also, look at the larger picture and the need for compromise. Your sense of justice must be elevated to another level where such virtues as forgiveness, compassion, and deep understanding are the guiding lights. A practical approach to these ideals is to try to put yourself in the shoes of the person with whom you are in conflict. There are always more angles to a problem than you tend to acknowledge.

Page 18


Your Rational Thought number reveals what can probably best be described as the way you think. Are you a practical, methodical thinker, or a dreamer? Do you frequently allow your imagination to color your perception? Are you unconventional and original in the face of a practical problem, or do you stick to proven methods? This is the kind of information revealed through your Rational Thought number.

&Your Rational Thought is 70/7

You are never satisfied with a simple answer. You tend to delve into all the aspects of a question until you feel you understand the problem completely. Then you proceed to solve it with clarity and without hesitation. Few people are able to compete with you when it comes to finding answers. You recognize the underlying factors in a problem situation before anyone else, and you are often able to analyze them in a unique and insightful way. You are a perfectionist and quickly frustrated when you work with people who like to take short-cuts. You appreciate quality more than quantity in any situation.


The first letter of your first name gives an additional indication to your character, particularly as to the manner in which you approach opportunities and obstacles. The first letter is called your Cornerstone.

&Your Cornerstone is E

You need plenty of freedom You are physical and passionate and it is possible you will be married more than once. You like to be social and entertain. You are highly perceptive and not easily fooled. You are original and versatile. You are capable of looking at a situation from different perspectives.

Page 19


Your Subconscious Self reveals how you react to demanding situations. It indicates your ability to get the most out of your talents and opportunities, especially when you face new or challenging circumstances. The Subconscious Self also reveals the areas of our character that need to be strengthened.

&Your Subconcious Self is 8

You handle unexpected situations in an efficient manner and often manage to get the best out of it. You learn quickly and usually do not repeat the same mistakes. You want to be rewarded for your efforts and relate your success to the material aspects. You are dependable and solid in almost any kind of situation. You do not panic or scare easily. You have a business-like attitude to problems and realize quickly what needs to be done. You have a good understanding of money and matter. You are a survivor. You show leadership and organization and are physically courageous and competent.


Each of us is born with both strengths and weaknesses. Numerology looks at life as if it were an educational process that is meant to bring out and enhance our talents, and turn our weaknesses into strengths. This serves to complete our being. The job of becoming whole is one in which we must face our weaknesses and consciously work to improve ourselves. The Challenges on the Life Path provide specific lessons that we must attend to if we are to become happy and successful human beings. There are four Challenges to be faced during our lives. For many of us, the same challenge is repeated, while others have four distinctly different lessons to learn.

Page 20


The duration of the First Challenge usually lasts from birth until approximately the age of 30 to 35.

&Your First Challenge is 7

You are highly skeptical of anything that cannot be proven to you. You are particularly doubtful of anything having to do with spiritual matters. It is, therefore, difficult for you to find a personal philosophy that would give you peace of mind and insight into the purpose of your life. You repress many of your natural inclinations because they do not fit into your intellectual or rational thinking. You are in need of the part of your being that you are now repressing: the child within. All the characteristics that have to do with the irrational and holistic side of life -- spirit, humor, playfulness, and intuition -- are being shut out. Your challenge is to find some philosophy and, ideally, a community that will give you additional perspectives, and force you to bring out the many other characteristics that are a fundamental part of you. Otherwise, you risk loneliness and isolation. You have to learn faith. When you consider that most of life is made up of the invisible world -- thoughts, emotions, insight, and love -- you can begin to appreciate that only a small part of life is within the domain of your senses. You may have too much pride. You may experience a deep and humbling transformation that will set free the inner being you are keeping trapped within you. . THE SECOND CHALLENGE

The Second Challenge usually lasts until the age of about 35 to 40.

Page 21

&Your Second Challenge is 3

You are your own worst critic. You suppress your individuality and creativity. Each time you want to make an impression, you doubt yourself beforehand, and criticize yourself ruthlessly afterward. Your criticism of yourself is far more severe than anyone else's. As a result, you tend to play it safe by staying on the surface, indulging in superficialities. You rarely express what goes on deep inside of you; instead, you cover up your feelings with humor or perfunctory remarks. You often feel alone and lonely. Your fear of social interaction causes you to strain conversation by making too many jokes and forced joviality. It may help you to find a creative outlet for your imagination, possibly through writing, painting, singing or dance. At the bottom of the challenge is an effort to bring out your true self. You will learn to truly value your own creative talents above anyone else's judgments. This must be viewed as a process of individuation, in which you become a whole human being, independent and free of the need to conform to others. . THIRD CHALLENGE

This Challenge carries much weight and will be felt throughout your life. For that reason, it is also called the Main Challenge. As you master this challenge, your life will come more and more under your own control. You will incorporate the positive aspects of the challenge into your character. This is it's purpose in the first place. Therefore, there is implicit in the challenge a chance for great reward. In short, this may be the secret to your success.

&Your Third & Main Challenge is 4

You tend to be disorderly and disorganized. You are impractical and tend to fantasize about projects or possibilities that have little value or future. You must learn to discriminate between iron balloons and those that will fly.

Page 22

You have difficulty finishing projects because your vision becomes chaotic and loses tract of the path ahead. You have to learn to be aware of the details. Keep your environment clean and orderly. Be efficient. You have the ability to be practical and organized but you must learn their value. This will cause you to incorporate them into your daily life and give you the basis for success. This is the challenge of building a lasting foundation for your life. You will need perseverance and repeated effort. Get-rich-quick schemes will likely backfire; persistent effort is the key to your future happiness. . THE FOURTH CHALLENGE

The Fourth Challenge is most strongly felt during the latter part of our lives, beginning at the age of approximately 45.

The Pinnacles are four long-term cycles, or periods, on our Life Path. Each Pinnacle represents a particular lesson we are working on. The first Pinnacle usually lasts from birth to between the ages of 30 and 35 (your specific Pinnacle periods are provided below). The middle two Pinnacles each last nine years. The last Pinnacle will stay with you for the remainder of your life. The Pinnacles are very important. The transition from one Pinnacle to the next is always strongly felt. Your Pinnacles reveal the general conditions and events you will experience during the period. The Pinnacle describes the atmosphere, or the essential challenge you will be faced with. You can prepare yourself for the times ahead by knowing your approaching Pinnacle number. The transition from one Pinnacle to the next is usually

Page 23

prepared for approximately 2 years in advance. The latter part of that two year period is particularly strong. You will likely make some life-altering decisions -- marriage, job or career change, or any number of major changes in your character. Perhaps the most strongly felt change -- internally as well as externally -- is the transition from the first to the second Pinnacle. This change usually takes place in your late 20s or early 30s -- the exact date depends on your Life Path number and is provided below. You begin to feel the impact of this coming change approximately two years prior. This is usually a difficult transition, but once crossed usually provides a clear sense of direction in one's life. It also gives you a much firmer sense of your identity. It is a gateway to maturity.

&Your First Pinnacle lasts from birth until age 28 and is 11

This is a challenging period in which you are at a high point of sensitivity and intuition. There is so much going on in your psyche that you can suffer much confusion over direction and identity. On the other hand, there is a wide open channel between the personal consciousness and the higher realms of the unconscious. You are constantly being inspired and even assaulted by information and insight. Because of the intensity of these revelations, you must learn to ground your life in faith and a practical vocation that keeps your feet on the ground everyday. This is a period of enormous spiritual and personal growth. You will come out of it with a highly uncommon clarity and understanding of life. At the same time, it is a period of enormous demands, emotionally and spiritually. Any attachment you might have to specific identity traits -- who you think you are and why you are here, for example -- is constantly challenged. There is a desire to settle into some field or way of life to attain stability, but the energy of this Pinnacle is not allowing it. It is as if there is a destination, or destiny, to which you are being driven. You do not feel in control of this process. Instead, you are acutely aware of the forces that are shaping your life. You must surrender to them. Meanwhile, you experience the emotional turmoil that can come

Page 24

with this highly charged period. There is a definite, even compelling, sense of being different. You are aware of a feeling of receiving special attention from spiritual forces. Your perception of life is somehow more acute than others; you see more clearly and more spiritually due to your high degree of sensitivity. It is as if you have a perfectly accurate peripheral vision, in which everything stands out in sharp relief. At times you may feel that you can see into the souls of things. At the same time, you may feel like a foreigner to the earth. You are completely impractical. Sometimes you may feel that you do not understand the workings of the physical world. Practical things escape you. You feel awkward and clumsy at times, and are aware perhaps how fluidly other lives are going. This increases your sense of being an outsider. More important than all the awkwardness and feelings of being different is the overwhelming sense of having a purpose or a message to reveal that will make other people's lives happier, healthier, and more at peace. You want desperately to bring this out. The challenge of the 11 Pinnacle is to remain grounded and attached to this dream. You must find practical and useful ways to be of service to others, at the same time developing yourself so that one day you may be able to bring forth that which is within you. The influences of this period make you highly creative, innovative, and inventive. You have a completely unconventional approach to problems. Trust your intuition, seek harmonious settings to restore your sense of inner peace, and work hard to keep your feet on the ground. This period will bring great rewards on all levels, and with perseverance you will find your rightful place.

&Your Second Pinnacle lasts from age 28 until age 37 and is 6

Under this Pinnacle you will be very involved with family, friends, and your community. You will face an increase in responsibilities and duties, but you have a greatly enhanced sense of balance and perspective that allows you to handle emotional issues well.

Page 25

Your family demands much of your attention. Matters involving spouse and children require much security, love, and sacrifice. You are the centerpiece of your family, the one people come to for solace and understanding. You may feel an increased burden, as you carry the cares of many. You will experience a deep sense of being needed. This Pinnacle is full of love, closeness, and warmth, but you must rise to the challenges that close relationships bring. You must settle and bring harmony to personal conflicts between others. You are often the only one with perspective in a conflict. It is as if you are the keeper of justice, bringing understanding and compromise to situations that are polarized. Under the influences of this Pinnacle -- especially at its outset -- people are often married or start families. Children are born, in-laws come into your life. You are the nucleus of a little world. You must maintain your dignity. This is a period that makes it easier to sacrifice, but you can overdo it, becoming a doormat for others to step on simply to maintain a degree of peace. Know your limits and maintain healthy relationships. This is a fine period for growth in business and financial matters. You attract people with resources who can help to further your personal goals. Moreover, you are balanced in your approach to business affairs. This can bring many rewards. Your heightened sense of harmony and your genuine compassion makes you an excellent counselor and healer, especially if you already have native talent in any of these areas. Personal health matters can also surface, causing you to reflect on diet, exercise, and other health habits. Your desire to help others is also increased. But this can lead you to poke yourself into situations where you do not belong, or delve too deeply into other people's personal affairs. Be careful not to meddle or interfere. The 6 Pinnacle is a time of progress and growth as a full human being. You are capable of developing yourself in many different directions -- as a loving mate and parent; a sound businessperson; and as a pillar of your community. The time requires the balance you possess, since you can easily stretch yourself in too many directions and ultimately feel burned out by the demands in your milieu.

Page 26

&Your Third Pinnacle lasts from age 37 until age 46 and is 8

Under the influences of this Pinnacle, you will have greatly enhanced talent for dealing successfully with business and finances. This is a time of material growth, a time of expansion and reward. It is the cycle of harvest. The 8 Pinnacle also increases your personal power. You have sound judgment and vision. In fact, this is the basis of your financial success. People sense your power and effectiveness. They defer to you much more easily, and look to you for answers. This makes it easier for you to use power without having to be a bully or force your way through situations. They perceive your ableness and want to join you in your vision. Others have faith in you. You will be able to organize large enterprises. Problems do not threaten you so much as provide a challenge. You yourself sense your enhanced personal powers and feel a growing sense of stability and centeredness. You will be capable of influencing matter in an almost magical way. As a result, you are extremely goal oriented, moving toward the realization of your dreams with confidence and clarity. Your challenge during this period is to maintain a hold on your human and spiritual values. You must remain balanced between heaven and earth. There will be enormous temptations to make money and status your only priorities, excluding the more human or immaterial matters entirely. This will undoubtedly lead to losses. You are being tested and instructed in the real value of money -- it's natural place in life. If money is placed on a high altar, overshadowing all other facets of life, you will become its slave. If you are balanced in your approach to money, and have proper perspective, this can be a truly rewarding period, both materially and spiritually. That is the true promise of the 8. The number 8 symbolizes the balance between the finite and infinite, matter and spirit. It offers a great opportunity to grow.

Like most stories, there are three great divisions of our lives: the First, or opening period, finds us groping to find our true nature; at the same time, we are trying to cope with the powerful forces that are present in our environment, our parents and the socio-economic conditions of our family, for example. The Second Cycle, or middle period of our lives, brings about the slow emergence of our individual and creative talents. The initial part of this cycle -- the early and mid 30s -- represents a struggle to find our place in the world, while the late 30s, 40s, and early 50s, sees us with a greater degree of self-mastery and influence over the environment. The Third, or final Cycle, can represent a flowering of our inner being, such that our true nature has finally come to fruition. It is during this period that one has the greatest degree of self-expression and power.

&Your First Cycle starts at birth, lasts until age 28 and is 2

This is a period of slow and patient development. You are acutely sensitive to your surroundings and highly intuitive. You possess a gift as a peacemaker and have tremendous power through gentle persuasion. Cultivate the talents of tact and diplomacy. Cooperate with others. Musical and other artistic talents come to fruition. Partnerships are important, requiring understanding and compromise. You need patience and flexibility, but you are under a gentle and benevolent influence in which others are happy to support you. Seek out beauty and harmonious environments, spend time in nature, and enjoy the peace of close companionship. This is a period of slow but steady progress.

Page 28

&Your Second Cycle lasts from age 28 until age 55 and is 9

This is a period in which a broad view of humanity and a sincere concern for the well being of others will be developed. Tolerance, acceptance, and universal love are the goals of this 9 Cycle, and while such perfection will not be fully achieved, the person under this influence will grow toward these ideals. Humanitarian principles and social service are the keys to personal happiness. All work directed toward the improvement of the general welfare will bring great personal rewards, as well. Hard work directed toward higher ideals is rewarded. Creative talent is also enhanced, especially when it is joined with some larger social purpose or message. There is an element of sacrifice or letting go, as one is asked to forgive past grievances and let go of negative attachments. The person is being asked to live according to a higher ethical standard, with much spiritual and personal enrichment as his reward.

&Your Third and last Cycle starts at age 55 and is 6

A time of family, responsibility, and duty. The issues of commitment, marriage, and family all come into sharp focus. When the commitments are made and one responds lovingly and with acceptance, this is a period of much harmony and support. You are greatly needed by those around you. You will be loved and appreciated. This is the best cycle for marriage. In the same way, partnerships go well and much progress is made from joint activities. Conversely, if commitments are not deeply made or are broken, separation and divorce often occur. Any artistic talent you possess will surface and new opportunities for self-expression will present themselves. You are also under very supportive influences for starting a business. This is a time of progress through flexibility, cooperation, and compromise.

The Transits are the individual letters of your name that combine to form the Essence, which is the number that reveals a great deal about your year ahead. Your name can be seen as a piece of music that vibrates in time. Each note, or letter, has a specific duration and influence over the course of your life. Your life, therefore, can be seen as a musical score, with the individual letters making specific contributions at given points, just as notes in a musical piece are played at specific points to give a piece of music its rhythm, character, and nuance. Each letter is assigned a value based on its location in the alphabet. The letter "A" has a value of 1 and a duration in time of one year. "B" has a value of 2, and a duration of two years; "C", 3, and a duration of three years, and so on. The sequence runs to "I", which has a value of 9, and lasts for nine years, and then begins again, with "J" assigned the value of 1, and lasting one year. This continues onward with "K" being 2; "L" being 3; and so on till "R", which is 9, while "S" is a 1. The letter "Z" is assigned an 8, and whenever it falls in your chart will influence the next 8 years. The Transits appear as part of your Progressive Chart and will tell you much about specific influences taking place in your life during given years.

&Your Physical Transit for age 65 is Z

This is an inspiring time. You can overcome limitations and see enormous progress in your life. Financially this is a good time as long as you put your faith in hard work and avoid schemes. You are able to make accurate judgements based on sound intuition. A new and unusual relationship will cause many changes in your life, which may include a change of residence.

Page 30

&Your Physical Transit for age 66 is Z

&Your Physical Transit for age 67 is Z

(You are repeating this cycle. See earlier description.)

&Your Physical Transit for age 68 is A

You have a mental approach to practical matters. This is a period of change, activity, progress, and creativity. The letter A adds independence and leadership to your personality. There can be quite a bit of travel and possibly a change of residence. You can expect promotion and opportunities. There may also be a real breakthrough in your awareness and perspective of life.


&Your Mental Transit for age 65 is F

This is a period of much soul searching and spiritual growth. There will be plenty of hard work and responsibility, both at home and on the job. You will begin to doubt old and established ideas and patterns. During this year you are intuitive and sensitive but less clear about what you want out of this life. You will need to turn inward, contemplate and meditate. You may have a tendency to play the martyr during this time; sacrificing too much. However, this is likely an avoidance of responsibility rather than an act of genuine selfless love. There will be more than enough

Page 31

opportunity to help and give comfort, however, because many people will come to you for guidance and a shoulder to cry on.

&Your Mental Transit for age 66 is R

You have much understanding and insight during this time. It is a time in which you have to deal with money, power, and authority. You have an opportunity to elevate your financial status and personal growth. This is a time in which you will meet the best and the worst. You have to exercise caution in everything you do and every decision you make. Be aware of your surroundings.

&Your Mental Transit for age 67 is R

(You are repeating this cycle. See earlier description.)

&Your Mental Transit for age 68 is R

(You are repeating this cycle. See earlier description.)


&Your Spiritual Transit for age 65 is Y

This is a time of spiritual growth and perception of higher realms. You are very intuitive and psychic perceptions will take place. Soul-searching and meditation are extremely beneficial to you during this time. Your sense of direction is somewhat clouded, inspiring serious self-examination. You are in search of new friends and contacts with others of similar intellectual needs. There may

Page 32

be some minor health problems. You should avoid stimulants and extreme foods.

&Your Spiritual Transit for age 66 is L

This is not a time to hurry. You want to carefully and thoroughly consider your path, plans, and future. This is a mental time, a time to think and look for the deeper meaning of your desires and expectations. Try to take all available opportunities to travel. Involvement with the arts and expressing your own creativity is highly rewarding during this time. You will make new friends easily. This is also a favorable time for marriage. However, thoughtlessness and careless action may cause you to lose friends and resources.

The Essence Number and the Personal Year Number are the two essential indicators of the forces that will influence your life during the course of any year. While the Personal Year runs from January to January, the Essence is most strongly felt from birthday to birthday. For example, if your essence number is 8 for the year 1988, you would begin to feel the influence of that 8 most powerfully after your 1988 birthday. The influence would begin to

Page 33

wane during 1989 and would finally end at your birthday of 1989. The Essence number indicates the lessons you will be dealing with during that year. It says a great deal about how you will perceive your environment. It also gives clear advice on how you can be most successful during the year, that is, which types of behavior will be supported by your milieu, and which ones will be less effective.

&Your Essence at the age of 65 is 21/3

Your ability to express your self will reach an all-time high. Any talent you possess in the arts -- especially in writing, acting, or other performing arts -- will be greatly enhanced. This is a period of success through personal creativity. You have much opportunity to advance yourself and career through your own personal expression, charm, and creative talent. This is a social time, filled with much fun and friendship. You will feel lighter, fresher, more alive than in previous years. It is as if life has relieved you of a burden, allowing the more creative, upward, and joyful energies to flow more freely. People are naturally attracted to you. They sense your joie de vivre, your spirit, and creativity. Your challenge is to focus your heightened creativity on a worthwhile task. Discipline is essential. Choose a goal worth reaching. Pour your energies into something that will last. In this way, you will emerge from this period having accomplished something worthwhile, and learned to harness your creative abilities. If you fail to focus, you will likely spend your opportunity and creative urges on loose talk, superficiality, and socializing. This is an emotional period. The upward, heart-centered energies are peaking, bringing with them many old emotional issues. You can easily exaggerate the importance of an unkind word, or react too emotionally to a troubling situation. In short, you need perspective now. You are in a highly volatile period, making you highly creative, sensitive, and given to emotional mood swings. You are highly romantic and given to fantasy. There can be many wonderfully romantic times; however, it is important to avoid

Page 34

being swept away by your fantasies. Do not fail to see people for what they are. This is a time when you will learn the value of your personal expression, and your own uniqueness. It is a time of personal accomplishment and advancement.

&Your Essence at the age of 66 is 20/2

You must learn to cooperate with others in order to accomplish some greater good. This is not a time to lead, but to follow. You must be content to draw your guidance from the environment and those in positions of greater power. You must maintain your own center, but avoid arrogance, rigidity, and stubbornness. The more you insist on your own priorities, the more resistance will you meet. This is a period of partnerships. Your success depends on your ability to work with others. You will be extremely sensitive and intuitive. Your powers of understanding will be at an all-time high. These abilities will give you the insight you need to perceive subtle changes in people and situations. You will therefore be better able to adapt to changing circumstances. Your intuition makes it possible to accomplish great tasks, even though you may not be in a leadership role. The reason: you instinctively know how to react to change, and to gently advise people to go in the right directions. Your role as an advisor or confidant is the key to your success during this period. You are learning the lesson of interdependence. You will also come to know how valuable you can be in a more passive role. It is a period to serve, to be the helper, the assistant. Your ability and willingness to work with others will be tested and rewarded. It is essential that you listen. Be shrewd in your evaluations of others and of situations, but do not enforce your judgments directly on people. Your sensitivity will make it necessary for you to seek out harmonious and peaceful environments. Be careful of the health of your nervous system. You can become anxious more easily during this period. Therefore, seek out people you trust; share your deeper

Page 35

feelings; allow yourself to be supported by friends and loved ones. Keep your spirits high and avoid depression. Music plays an important role during this period. Any musical talent you possess will be enhanced. You even possess a certain physical grace that can emerge in dancing, athletics, or simply walking down the street. In your passive, centered way, you will be charismatic and attractive to others. People will sense your fine intuition and sensitivity and seek you out for private talks. Be loyal to friends and partners. Remain strong inwardly and flexible without. In this way you will avoid the obvious difficulties and remain on your path to success. This is a period of accomplishment through gentle persuasion.

&Your Essence at the age of 67 is 20/2

(You are repeating this cycle. See earlier description.)

&Your Essence at the age of 68 is 13/4

This a period of much work, attention to detail, and advancement in your career. Your rewards will be directly proportional to your effort. Much will be demanded of you, but you now have the opportunity to lay a sound foundation for your life. You must be orderly and disciplined. Attention to detail in all areas -- especially in personal finances and business -- is a necessity. Your workload will likely increase. Only through the correct management of time and resources will you be able to apportion your energies correctly to meet the increased demands made of you. You are now being trained in the ways of the world, and only sound practical management will bring you the results you desire. Any flimsy or unsound business practices will likely bring trouble and increased work for you. Only by dealing with reality -- that is, by facing situations exactly as they are, and not how you might like them to be -- will you be able to find the correct

Page 36

path to success. Avoid feelings of restriction or limitation. Be economical in all your expenditures. Be sure to care for your health. Maintain a healthy diet and follow a sound exercise routine. Pay attention to preventive health methods and get the rest you need. But know when to allow yourself some breathing room. Be moderate in all things, including moderation. Balance is the key to this period. In-laws and family members can be demanding during this period. People see you as a rock of stability and are naturally attracted to you for support. Be helpful without allowing yourself to be used. You are being called upon to work hard and establish a firm foundation upon which your life will rest for many years to come.


Your Personal Year number is a strong indication of the trends and circumstances you will experience during the year ahead. It is closely related to your Pinnacle cycle and should be read with that in mind. Your Personal Year starts in January. A cusp period of approximately two months before and after the year should be kept in mind. There are nine personal year numbers, which makes up a complete Epicycle. Each Epicycle reveals the progression or evolution of a specific part of your growth. Your progress along this Epicycle can be seen very logically, from the infancy or beginning of a growth period in your life, to the conclusion or culmination of that process. The 1 personal year indicates your first steps in a new direction. The years that follow indicate your progress along this path, concluding with your 9 Personal Year, which completes the cycle. Below is a description of your current Personal Year, and the two years that will follow. It indicates where you are on the 9 year Epicycle.

Page 37

&Your Personal Year for 1998 is 2

This is a year to carefully protect and nurture your plans. You will be like a mother watching over her children, conscious of every threat, real or imagined. You need tact and cooperation to keep yourself moving forward. There will likely be confrontations with others, requiring a subtle and gentle approach. You will have to stay focused on your goals, yet use intelligent persuasion. Being forceful may work against you; compromises will work in your favor. You will be unusually sensitive and may wonder at times what happened to the drive and momentum you felt last year. This year requires something else from you now -- a delicate sense of balance and a willingness to go around obstacles, without losing sight of your goal. You may experience some emotional depressions and frustrations. The year is marked by struggle, but there are many opportunities to advance your plans. This is a year of slow growth, requiring patience. Be discriminating in your associations and secretive about your plans. Don't talk too much about your ideas; be a bit secretive; guard yourself and your ideas. You are somewhat vulnerable this year. This is a good year to improve yourself through reading and research. Your growing awareness of the less visible and less obvious aspects of life will make you much stronger and better prepared for the future. You must be wise in all your relationships and associations this year. You are far more capable of establishing close, even life long relationships this year. Because sensitivity and openness are heightened, many people find their "soul mate" in a two year. May is the pivotal month in the year. You are extremely intuitive and sensitive. You are also self-reflecting and better able to influence your peers and situation through spiritual awareness. July brings a culmination of plans and a distinct step forward. August sees things become more concrete and brings a new beginning. September is emotional, requiring adjustments, tact, and inner resolve. The 2 year is a year of growth and advancement, but through gentle means, and the indirect use of your personal power.

Page 38

&Your Personal Year for 1999 is 3

This is a year of expansion and personal growth. It is a time of heightened personal expression. Creativity and artistic talent come to the forefront. You are lighthearted and drawn to all kinds of social events. More than most other years, you will entertain and be entertained. You meet new and exciting people. It is a time to appreciate all that you have. You are highly dynamic and charismatic. Your challenge is to avoid scattering your energies. You have a rare opportunity to bring forth new and creative ideas. But that requires discipline and focus. It is easy to be optimistic and enthusiastic this year and this may result in speeding up your projects. Yet there will be delays and disappointments unless your enthusiasm is based upon the reality of work and concentration. This is a pleasant time in which friendship is enjoyed and love shared easily. This is often a good financial year, particularly if your creativity is well directed. Surround yourself with upbeat and positive people. You may travel more than usual, which in all likelihood will be filled with exciting people and pleasure. Control this years tendencies towards glamour and extravagance, yet allow your self more room to enjoy and celebrate. You communicate well this year and are more capable of getting your ideas across. Love is in the air. February brings changes; June sees the completion of a project and July signals a new beginning. August can be emotional, as can November.

&Your Personal Year for 2000 is 4

This is a year to be organized and practical. Take care of details. Commit yourself entirely to your goals. Your concentration and ability to focus will be much improved over last year. You will have an attitude of realism and

Page 39

determination. There can be a sense of limitation and some frustration this year. However, it is a year of important opportunities that must be seized. There can be considerable work-related travel. You must be flexible this year to make full use of the opportunities that present themselves. It will require a combination of perseverance, hard work, and versatility. You will receive recognition for your efforts and support from your friends and family. It is a good year to buy real estate or remodel your home. It is also a good time to take care of projects which have been postponed for to long. Fulfill your obligations and do not be afraid to spend some of that hard earned money. Selling and trading during this year usually is quite successful. This is the year to work on your foundation and prepare yourself for the many changes that will undoubtedly come next year. As a result of your hard work, there will be much satisfaction and a feeling of accomplishment. January and February will bring some important change, a new opportunity perhaps. March requires self-reflection and reshaping of your plans. It is a good time to meditate on what lies ahead. June brings a new and important step -- a breakthrough, perhaps -- in your work. October brings changes and a sense of chaos. You may feel threatened by the changes that are on the horizon. But November brings assistance in the form of a promotion or additional financial support.


&January, 1998

January is a 3 Personal Month in a 2 Personal Year. Hence, the month brings you optimism and energy. The drive and enthusiasm that emerged during the second half of last year is still with you, along with a certain caution born of inner change and the emotional ups and downs that arose during the previous 18 months. You're aware of your need for support, cooperation, and advice.

Page 40

And this month, you find yourself establishing closer ties and better communication among those with whom you live and work. You are also reflective and relaxed. Take time to play and laugh. Reach out to friends and loved ones. Communicate your ideas freely. You and your plans will be supported, which will heighten your optimism about the future. Romance is an important part of this months' experiences, and the chances are good that you may meet someone special.

&February, 1998

February is a 4 Personal Month in a 2 Personal Year. You will realize early this month that progress depends upon your willingness to work diligently and remain focused on details. You feel capable and confident, but as your effort increases -- and the hours pile up -- you may become frustrated with the slow response of others. Keep your nose to the grindstone, and if necessary put in overtime. Don't try to dodge the bullet; bite down on it and keep going. Meanwhile, be willing to cooperate, listen to others, and tactfully communicate your convictions, as well as your doubts. This is an excellent month to improve your financial position, particularly through better management. Through your consistent and patient effort, a raise or profitable business deal is also in the cards. Relationships tend to be a little shaky for most of this month. You may be somewhat irritable and lack patience as a result of stress and emotional turmoil in your work-environment.

Maintaining a well-ordered environment and avoiding procrastination will help you bypass much emotional stress.

&March, 1998

March is a 5 Personal Month in a 2 Personal Year. It brings some relief from last months' frustrating efforts to persuade others and to keep track of the details. This month will be hectic with some unexpected changes. Don't try to plan everything down to its final detail. Instead, be flexible and adapt to whatever comes your way.

Page 41

The expression "being in the flow", is instructive for most of this month and you will be astonished by coincidences in which timing is crucial. Don't make financially risky decisions, especially involving business. Checking and double-check all your facts before going forward with your plans. Be skeptical! However, your ability to promote yourself, your plans, or a product is enhanced. There will be many social events and opportunities. Take advantage of them. The chances of meeting new people who can support you in your endeavors are especially good. A letter or phone call from someone you haven't heard from in a long time may surprise you. It's high noon for romance, but be warned. You may not be as discriminating and cautious as you should be. Allow your rational mind to take a critical look at flattering admirer(s).

&April, 1998

April is a 6 Personal Month in a 2 Personal Year. Matters of the heart come to the foreground. Romance is now at the top of your list of opportunities. On the other hand, the month brings instability to outdated relationships, and some may end. You become aware of the need to let go of certain people, although final good-byes may not occur until July or early August of this year. Your family and friends need more attention and you will likely find yourself playing the roles of mediator, comforter, and counselor. You'll be the one to offer the proverbial shoulder to cry on this month. A younger person, particularly, needs your love and attention. Your career is guided favorably by the Force. There is an increase in your workload and responsibilities due to a promotion -- or one that may be in the offing. The change may well bring financial rewards. This is a good time for finances, particularly those related to real-estate.

&May, 1998

May is a 7 Personal Month in a 2 Personal Year. The combination leads to powerful self-discoveries and intuitive perceptions. It is a highly spiritual time, causing you to withdraw from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Your focus is inward. You find yourself contemplating the mystery of your own existence, your purpose in life, and your direction. You find yourself taking time off to read, meditate. Your interests are spiritual, not worldly. It's an excellent time to take a vacation, as long as you avoid group-activities. Social demands will make you irritable and out of sorts. Be with yourself or enjoy meaningful discussions with someone close to you. In this way, you may deepen your marriage or romantic relationship. It is a time for wisdom and insights, even premonitions and revelations that have little to do with intellectual effort, but are the result of heightened awareness and a free-flowing channel between your sub-conscious and your conscious. Be particularly alert to your dreams and the direction and insight they offer.

&June, 1998

June is an 8 Personal Month in a 2 Personal Year. Now the time is ripe to reach out and receive some of the fruits of your labors. It is a harvesting time, but the rewards are still dependent upon good relations with co-workers. Ask for a promotion, or a raise. Let those in the right positions know that you value the recognition and respect they bestow upon you. You are in the right state of mind to deal with some tricky personality-clashes; solve communication problems; turn enemies into friends; and in many ways manipulate events through gentle persuasion. The numbers 2 and 8 allow you to handle sensitive issues with tact and diplomacy, as well as with authority and decisiveness. It is a good time for negotiations in every area of your life, personal as well as professional. Romance is very favorable, but can be spoiled by money issues. On the other hand, domestic affairs can be troublesome and can leave you feeling powerless unless you are willing to cooperate.

Page 43

Leave such issues alone for now. The domestic scene is better handled next month, when all dealings with relatives are easier and smoother.

&July, 1998

July is a 9 Personal Month in a 2 Personal Year and is both emotional and demanding. This is a month to take care of loose ends. Relationships that have been rocky of late will reach critical mass, to be worked out and deepened, or separated entirely. Actually, this is a testing period for relationships in all areas of your life. The 9 and the 2 combination -- both diplomatic, sensitive, and service oriented -- advises that you avoid confrontations. Work with issues quietly and patiently. At the same time, it is an excellent period to look inward and acknowledge your own needs and desires. Let go of all that you have outgrown, including people, situations, material objects -- anything that you have out-grown. This month is your opportunity to avoid becoming an emotional and/or material packrat. This is the time to empty your cup in order to make room for new gifts coming your way. This is a transition period. You will likely experience deep emotions, even nostalgia and melancholy. At times, you may feel exhausted. Yet, such feelings are not altogether unpleasant. There is a cleansing and healing taking place at a very deep and personal level. You are not entirely conscious of all that is happening, and consequently you may not be able to express your feelings to others. You may sense that you do not fully understand yourself. Give it time and much will be revealed to you. An opportunity to be involved in a good cause may present itself and your sacrifice will actually help you achieve stability and inner strength. This is a good time financially. Some payment may be received for something you'd forgotten, or for reasons you do not expect. This is a month that requires balance: you are feeling emotional yourself, but at the same time you must also focus on the needs of others. If you indulge too much in your own feelings, especially self-pity, you will suffer more self-doubt than if you remain balanced between your own needs and service to

Page 44


&August, 1998

August is a 1 Personal Month in a 2 Personal Year. It brings new energy and a kind of restoration of life. There is a feeling of rebirth, excitement, a brightness in the air that wipes away the last residues of last months bouts of gloominess and self-doubt. You want a change, a challenge, some goal toward which you can direct your enthusiasm. Well, that's what this month will bring. A new project, career change, something new. Keep in mind, however, that you are planting seeds now that must be nurtured and cultivated over the next year or so. In other words, you must remain focused on this dream to nurture it properly over time. Don't take chances financially. Your optimism may make you impulsive and vulnerable. Remain cautious and research all propositions brought to you. You likely will be introduced to new people and, if you are not already involved, one of them may evolve into a passionate romance. Here, also, the careful approach can save some future heartache. The child in you is very much alive, trusting and believing that everything is what it seems. While this is a very promising time for romance, keep in mind that a certain amount of rational examination is necessary to protect yourself. Wait until the end of next month before you surrender your heart to the person you are attracted to.

&September, 1998

September is a 2 Personal Month in a 2 Personal Year. The number 11 -- referred to in numerology as a Master number, and therefore highly charged, sensitive and intuitive -- is also prominent in your life now. You are extremely perceptive. Dreams are full of insight, and seemingly irrational and creative ideas should be examined seriously. Your most powerful asset right now is your inner antenna that is picking up vibrations that escape others. Your relationship with co-workers is fragile, but this is due largely to your enhanced sensitivity. Don't take your emotions too

Page 45

serious. Increased sensitivity magnifies and exaggerates emotions. If you fixate too much on them, you'll do yourself a disservice. Overlook slights and let things pass without retort. People will come around. Romance is still strong, but you must remain realistic. Last months' excitement and infatuation has given rise to self-examination. As with co-workers, long-term relationships and friendships are fragile right now. Again, be skeptical of your emotions; it's quite possible that you are making mountains out of mole hills. Cooperation, tact, patience, tolerance, and forgiveness are the key-words to make this month pleasant and successful.

&October, 1998

October is a 3 Personal Month in a 2 Personal Year, and you need a break. If possible, take some time off to recharge your batteries. You need sunshine, relaxation, fun, and laughter with friends. The only career aspects that are favorably highlighted are those related to creativity, and inspiring and motivating those with whom you work. It's a good time to express the thoughts and ideas that you've been thinking about for the past several months. You can make a favorable impression on superiors, even with ideas that are a little daring. Avoid stress and working under pressure now. The next five months give you the strength to survive and even prosper under pressure, but avoid stressful situations this month. Postpone important financial decisions if possible, unless they have to do with "fun projects", such as travel, exercise equipment, creative endeavors, and the like. A modest amount of gambling can be healthy and has a better chance of paying off this months than most other months. Romance is light and playful. Again, postpone important decisions in the area of romance.

&November, 1998

November is a 4 Personal Month in a 2 Personal Year. It's definitely time to get down to business, to focus on work, and finish anything that's been left undone. Pay attention to the

Page 46

details; don't procrastinate; don't cut corners. Get the picture? You are laying a foundation for the future, proving to yourself and others that you are worthy of the responsibilities and challenges you have taken on. Your energy is strong and focussed. You can concentrate even when work becomes routine and boring. You are in a crucial stage in your life, but you've got the energy and a take-no-prisoners attitude that will lead you to success. The best way to balance such determination is to get in touch with nature: take a walk in the woods; sit at the edge of the lake; feel the earth and your connection with it. If you have recently become involved in a romance, this month will bring commitment and stability to the relationship.

&December, 1998

December is a 5 Personal Month in a 2 Personal Year and brings changes and restlessness. You feel a need to be with others, to be social, to laugh and talk and enjoy yourself. You receive opportunities to travel and will meet a new and exciting person on a trip away from home. This person inspires and motivates you to try something new, to get off the beaten path and take a chance. This is a month that could bring quite a few surprises, most of which invigorate you. It is a dynamic time that brings information and knowledge from unexpected sources. You want change. You are ready to try a new direction, which causes you to see your career with new eyes. You are in an adventurous mode and willing to take a risk. This month requires courage and flexibility. There are new opportunities awaiting you and it is up to you to prevent them from slipping by. Your love relationship is in a vulnerable state and some suppressed anxieties need to be released. You are somewhat impulsive and may need to force yourself to slow down. You experience a bit of self-indulgence. There is a need for self-discipline.

Page 47

&January, 1999

January is a 4 Personal Month in a 3 Personal Year and offers opportunities for progress in your career. You are inspiring and motivating to yourself and others and know how to express your ideas. Your creativity is enhanced. You find original solutions and manage to implement them. Your co-workers and superiors are impressed. You are optimistic and light-hearted this month which further enhances your work situation. However, you will have a tendency to be impulsive and may find yourself with your foot in your mouth. Make sure you have the information to back up any claims. You also may have a tendency to procrastinate, which can spoil opportunities and damage your career. This is a month to be on your toes and take full advantage of a favorable combination of cycles. If you have considered remodeling or redecorating your house, or starting a gardening project, now is the time to get started. Marriage or a romantic relationship takes on more depth.

&February, 1999

February is a 5 Personal Month in a 3 Personal Year. It will bring changes, excitement, and perhaps some upheaval. You may move, travel, or go on an unexpected trip. Carefully prepared plans confront the unexpected: events and people you had not expected. Those who are flexible and not afraid of changes will enjoy this month, but those who rigidly try to stick to expectations and refuse to adapt will experience a difficult time in which almost nothing works out, no matter how hard you try. This is a month to allow the forces of nature to guide your ship. Despite these disruptions, do not give in to impulsiveness or irresponsibility. Make the plans you can; adhere to them as well as possible, and be flexible. Love is exciting, adventurous, and playful. You uplift your partner and reveal your deeper self. Hidden thoughts and desires that you have kept hidden during the past two years come freely to the surface. You are open and childlike and for that reason very attractive to the opposite sex.

Page 48

A word of caution for those who are uncomfortable with this kind of openness: Do not allow fear to turn this wonderful urge to share your thoughts and feelings into a superficial act. If you have a tendency to self-indulgence, this month's cycles are dangerous. Be cautious and control your appetite for whatever excesses tempt you.

&March, 1999

March is a 6 Personal Month in a 3 Personal Year. It brings family affairs and issues involving relationships to center stage. You may be asked to sacrifice some of your time and energy to help others. A parent or child may need more care and attention than usual. Answer the call and you will be rewarded with a wonderful experience of love and closeness. Many people in the 3 Personal Rhythm Cycle will make a deep commitment of love, or even get married this month. At the same time, separation and divorce are also possible, since the theme of this month is commitment to your true feelings. Confrontations are unavoidable in all troubled relationships. While these trends may be difficult and painful, the forces are working at clarifying your relationships. Your work situation will be rather demanding as more responsibility is transferred to you. However, the reward is right around the corner. (May and June will bring the pay-off.)

This month may be good financially, due to an earlier investment or from payments arriving from previously done work.

&April, 1999

April is a 7 Personal Month in a 3 Personal Year. The month represents a pause for self-evaluation. It is a time of light and shadow, a month of contrasting moods. You may alternate between light-hearted optimism and periods of doubt and even depression. The time requires you to look within. Meditate and contemplate your life. Such self-reflection will awaken deep feelings of gratitude for all the blessings bestowed upon you, including the greatest gift of all: your life itself.

Page 49

During the first half of the month, you may feel the inner you begin to stir. Your dreams may be intense, graphic, and highly revealing. They are a source of insight if you care to listen. There is a sub-conscious attempt to communicate, not with others but with your own deeper self. Let career, finances, and romance all take a back seat during this important spiritual time. You will be quite safe. If possible, take some time off. At the very least, walk in the woods, sit at a lake, or otherwise bring yourself in close contact with nature. Keep a journal and write down your dreams, insights, and revelations. They will offer you insight into your life's direction.

&May, 1999

May is an 8 Personal Month in aMay is an 8 Personal Month in a 3 Personal Year. It brings financial rewards, as well as respect and recognition. This, of course, is proportional to the effort you have put out during the past year. This is a month to focus on career, to be a visionary, and not to hold back when it comes to showing the world how capable you are. For those who are in business, this is a good time to finalize deals and sign contracts. Investments are generally favorable, as are requests for loans, mortgages, or other methods of financial support. In all worldly matters, this is a time to reach out, to go for your goals. Do not be afraid to take a risk. As far as matters of the heart are concerned, this is a time to take yourself and your feelings with a grain of salt. You are in a generous mode and feel blessed with so many good friends and such a wonderful lover, but when it comes to commitment, you may want to wait a couple of months when you are more realistic in these matters. For those who are not involved in a relationship, a "co-incidental" meeting with a person from the past brings an exciting romance.

Page 50

&June, 1999

June is a 9 Personal Month in a 3 Personal Year and brings a bit of moodiness and instability. You have completed many tasks and enjoyed many rewards during the first half of the year, and now you may be feeling a bit empty -- not unlike the fatigue one has the day after a party. It may be a minor case of burn-out, but for reasons you cannot really put your finger on. It is a time to let go of many old things and prepare for the new. You have had a number of good ideas during the first part of the year. You have been motivated and experienced much excitement, but not all of your ideas proved realistic. Now reality forces you to take a second look at your projects and goals in a new light. It's a weeding out period. The positive side of the coin is that, by the end of this month, you'll have a clearer perspective on your direction and projects. You'll know where to place your energy during the second half of the year. While you may find yourself going through some ups and downs during the course of this month, you also feel the first trembling of new excitement. This month also brings a concluding chapter to one or more relationships, which may cause additional emotional turmoil. However, you are going through a time of natural selection; what is worth holding on to will stay. The rest will go.

&July, 1999

July is a 1 Personal Month in a 3 Personal Year. It is a time of dynamism, courage, and eagerness to begin the new. Last month's blues are gone and you feel you are on top of the world. You are more original and creative than at any time of this already creative year. Many of those in a 3 Personal Rhythm Cycle may finally break out of unrewarding patterns. Some may even make career changes, or start their own businesses. This is not a time to be squeamish in any area of your life -- be it money, career or romance. You may experience an urge to write, paint, or express yourself in some other creative way. By all means, take on the challenge. If you are not already involved, you may well meet someone special, but the relationship, while intense and passionate, may not

Page 51

be a lasting one. This is a month that will also bring opportunities to mingle with new acquaintances at social events. You will be outgoing and witty. These are great opportunities to make lasting contacts which will help your career and other endeavors. A warning to the easily excitable: don't brag about your plans and accomplishments. The effect may backfire.

&August, 1999

August is a 2 Personal Month in a 3 Personal Year. It requires a sensitive and cooperative attitude at work and in all other areas. You are upbeat and optimistic during the early part of this month but an anticipated reward or recognition may go to someone else, much to your dismay. Your challenge is to set the record straight by using your diplomatic skills. Do not allow anger to alienate you from those involved. Otherwise, relationships go favorably this month. You are in a position to smooth out some long-standing disagreements between people close to you. Often, these disagreements do not involve you directly. You have the opportunity to serve as a peacemaker. Romance is also strongly represented and highly favorable. Your feelings are strong and your ability to communicate these feelings is enhanced. A good month to spend some extra time with your lover.

&September, 1999

September is a 3 Personal Month in a 3 Personal Year for you and your creativity is at an all-time high. You find solutions and discover new ways to improve old methods. You are communicative and express yourself well. You have a strong urge to write to old friends you haven't seen in some time. This need to re-establish relationships with people may even surprise you. At work, you discover that it is easy to reach others and influence the way they feel about themselves and their work. You uplift them and are rewarded with gratitude and support. This is a time to be social, easy-going, and optimistic.

Page 52

&October, 1999

October is a 4 Personal Month in a 3 Personal Year. It requires you to be practical and disciplined in all matters. It brings opportunity as well as limitations. Career is a high priority and you will find yourself putting in overtime. Details will need to be taken care off. There is very little room for slacking, and everyone may be making demands of you. You may feel frustrated and need to blow off steam. On the other hand, there is also much opportunity implicit in these demands and you will be pleasantly surprised with the rewards that come your way late in the month. You'll have to respond quickly. You may feel that you are not ready to take on the new challenge that comes with this opportunity, but if you overcome this temporary lack of confidence you will be well rewarded. This month is demanding in domestic affairs, as well. There is an ongoing need to watch finances carefully, make decisions concerning your budget, and plan for the future. If you have not been keeping a close eye on your checkbook, this month will force you to balance your account and make up for haphazard expenditures of the past. There's not a whole lot of time for romance this month, but when you can find the time, your partner's love brings perspective and rejuvenation.

&November, 1999

November is your second 5 Personal Month in a 3 Personal Year, and as before it brings change, excitement, and possibly a financial boost. The 5 brings movement -- travel, a change of residence or office, perhaps. You will receive a letter or phone call from someone close to you whom you haven't heard from in some time. This month should be light and playful. Try not to take things too seriously. The down-side of this combination (5 and 3) is in the area of relationships. You may have a tendency to misread others, to be a little insensitive and short on tact. Avoid confrontations in personal matters as well as those related to work. As long as you are upbeat and supportive, friendship and

Page 53

social events are favorable. As was the case with February of this year, November may also find you in the mood to indulge yourself. Moderation may be hard to maintain, but it's still the best advice.

&December, 1999

December is a 6 Personal Month in a 3 Personal Year. The month stabilizes your work-environment, but requires that you work on your relationships and family affairs. You will be in the unique position to counsel and support someone in your circle of friends and family with immediate and positive result. It will be one of the most rewarding experiences of this year for you. A promotion or a raise are possible, as is an increase in your workload. This month is good for business and financial affairs, particularly for long-term planning and investment. If you are involved in legal affairs, the time is right to surge ahead. Romance is also favorable. Commitments bring stability. For those who have become involved in a relationship during the course of this year, this is a good month to exchange vows. This should be a wonderful time for most of those who are in the last stage of this 3 Personal Year. The holidays bring family and friends together, for much love and the rewards of the season.

&January, 2000

January is a 5 Personal Month in a 4 Personal Year. You experience some self-doubt related to your work situation. You may question your direction. This frustration will be in the background for most of the year, but this month particularly feels a little bit out of control. However, hidden forces are guiding you carefully and your best approach is to persevere. Later this month, or early next month, an opportunity will come your way that represents a step forward in your career. This month also brings some unexpected changes in other areas of your life; possibly an unexpected trip. Be cautious in all financial affairs. Your family members demand a lot of attention and much

Page 54

practical guidance is required from you. They look to you for direction. Social events are favorable, particularly when they are work-related. You will make a very positive impression on someone who can help you move forward. If married or involved, maintain harmony and avoid rocking the boat.
