So, your father died 88 days after the 88th day of the year. He died the day Michael Jackson died. I was born on the 88th day of the year. Your birthday is interesting because you were born on 6/5, the 156th day of the year with 209 left. So, 6 + 5 = 11, the 156 is 1 and 11 and the 209 is 11! You have Jesus birthday written all over your life my friend because he was born on 9/11 wit 111 days left until the end of the year.. We are connected because Jesus was crucified on March 29, the 88th day, my birthday. 88 days later, your dad died.

About your Personal Reading This reading was composed for you, Carl, and is based on your full name at birth, your date of birth, and the name you now use to introduce yourself with. Please check your birth data on the title page to make sure the names and date of birth used are correct. Your Personal Numerology Reading describes all aspects of your chart as they are understood in numerology, accurately and in-depth. 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.
Carl, 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.
If ever there was a moment of total transformation, it was the moment of your birth. In that instant, you stepped through a door in time into a new reality, the reality of human life. The most important number in your numerology chart is based on the date of your birth, the moment when the curtain goes up in your life. Even at that moment, you were a person with your own unique character, as unique as your DNA. Everything that is you existed in potential, much like a play that is about to begin. Your entire life exists as a potential that has been prepared for. You have ultimate freedom to do with your life as you like: To fulfill its potential completely, or to make some smaller version of yourself. It all depends upon your effort and commitment. You make the decisions to fulfill, to whatever extent, the potential life that exists within you. That is your choice. In this sense, the possible you is implicit during the moment of your birth. The Life Path number gives us a broad outline of the opportunities, challenges, and lessons we will encounter in this lifetime. 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 33/6
Carl, you have within you the potential to become a spiritual teacher. The 33, like the 11 and the 22, is considered a Master number. However, as with all Master numbers, you may or may not find the opportunity and inner resources to reach your full potential. If you do, you will be remembered for generations. If you don’t, you will still have a strong, spiritually empowering influence on others. Keep in mind, that spiritual does not always mean religious. Some of our most enlightened teachers never saw the inside of a temple or a church. In fact, most were considered heretics and unbelievers. The truth is that spiritual knowledge is an inner experience. An experience, which nonetheless can be visible to those around you. If you know this experience, you understand your path. You possess great compassion and seek to be of service to others. You have concern for the weak and the downtrodden. You are a healer and a helper to others. You are capable of giving comfort to those in need and will frequently offer a shoulder for others to cry on.
Carl, your task in life is to develop the tools necessary to be truly helpful to others, rather than to simply be a sympathetic ear. You must find the balance between help and interference. In the same way, you must learn the delicate art of the counselor who knows when to leave the struggle to others and when to avoid taking away the necessary experiences and lessons of life. You are naturally balanced. Therefore, you are well equipped to support and ground others in times of trial. It is in your nature to take on responsibility … you often fill the void left by others … and do not turn away from personal sacrifice. At times, you may feel overburdened by the travails of others. However, the love others bestow upon you is your well deserved reward. You try to maintain harmony within the family or group, balancing and fusing divergent forces. You seek marriage and are often a wonderful parent, offering warmth, protection, and understanding to children. You are generous, kind, and attractive. You are often admired even adored which baffles you. You are humble and yet you carry a deep pride. You move well and gracefully, but will have to work to stay in shape. Seek out physical exercise and limit the sweets and dairy you crave to keep yourself from becoming plump and round. When young, you must be careful not to choose partners for the wrong reasons. Do not let sentimentality influence your decision, especially those involving the choice of a spouse. You need to be needed, but must learn to discriminate between those you can help and others who are made weaker by your care. After all, it is in your nature to be attracted to the weaker brothers and sisters among us. The temptation, and the danger for you, is to think of yourself as the savior of the world, carrying the burdens of others on your shoulders. You are blessed with musical talent, as well as in the visual and performing arts. However, your creativity may well be suppressed due to your Willingness to sacrifice, or your inability to fully appreciate your talents. This is not to say that you cannot excel in these areas; on the contrary, you have the talent, and with effort you can make a success in a number of artistic fields. You also have enormous talent in business. You are blessed with a great deal of charm and charisma, which you use effectively to attract the people and support you need.
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 five Core numbers … the Life Path, Expression, Heart’s Desire, and Personality being the other four. It is the least significant of the five numbers, but perhaps the most finite, in that it reveals a specific ability you possess in a marked degree. Your Birthday is 5 You love change, travel and adventure. You are a bit of a rolling stone. You have enormous curiosity and yearn to see far-off places and meet exotic peoples. Your arena is the world itself, and it is just a matter of time before you are off once again on another excursion. You are highly adaptable and need excitement.
Carl, you relate well to others and have an easy way with words. In fact, you have a talent for promotion, public relations, and, for some, writing. Your social skills are highly refined. Your ability to communicate and promote a product or event makes you a natural salesperson. You work well with others as long as there are not too many restrictions. You have trouble being bound to a desk or within an office. You can easily feel cooped up and trapped unless there is much variety and change in your life. You become bored and restless easily. You may be a little irresponsible and need to learn discipline and orderliness. You have a quick and analytical mind. You may be over- confident and headstrong. However, you are highly creative and can usually come up with a remarkably workable solution to most problems, either your own or those of others. You can be impatient and impulsive. You can also overindulge your senses in food, alcohol, sex, and drugs. You must be careful to protect your health from the excesses of your tastes. EXPRESSION Your Expression number reveals your physical and mental constitution, the orientation or goal of your life. Some numerologists refer to this number as the Destiny, because it represents a lifelong target at which you are aiming. You work at fulfilling this potential every day of your life. Thus, the Expression number reveals your inner goal, the person you aim to be. 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, reveals 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 emergence 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 20/2 You have a great talent for working with others; you possess tact and refinement.
Carl, you have a highly developed intuition. This provides you with insight into personalities and situations. Therefore, you act with tact and subtle persuasion. You possess a kind of radar, avoiding the landmines within another’s personality, yet bringing out their goodwill. These abilities make you the perfect diplomat. Your abilities are better expressed while working with others than by working alone. In the same way, you perform better in a partnership than in a leadership role. You seek balance and peace in all relationships and situations. The key to your personality is sensitivity, but there are two sides to the coin: You have the ability to perceive the thoughts and emotions of others, and can work gently with others for a mutually shared goal. This makes you a great asset in any group endeavor. However, your sensitivity makes you vulnerable. You can be thrown off balance by an unkind word, a conflict, or by hostile conditions at work. You are far more upset by these conditions than people without your sensitivity. While others appear to be enduring troubled times with a modicum of turmoil, you suffer the turbulence of life as if your very survival were at stake. In difficulties, you tend to persevere and steadily erode the resistance. You are like a gentle wind that shapes the rock. You are friendly and open-minded. You are a great support person, pulling the best out of those around you. You are the power behind the throne. You are indispensable to the leadership of another, providing insight and advice that is essential. Yet, despite the invaluable service you provide, you often do not get the credit and recognition you deserve, which can be frustrating. Your natural modesty and the enjoyment you get from being an important asset is usually satisfaction enough for you. Close relationships are essential to your happiness. When single, you dream of finding your “soul mate.” When married, you are concerned with your spouse’s needs, emotions, and thoughts. You are an outstanding marriage partner, giving, thoughtful, and conscious of meeting the needs of your loved one.
Carl, you provide great support for your spouse’s career. You are a passionate lover. Parenthood is not an easy role for you, probably because you lack the will to enforce discipline and need a tranquil, delicate, and harmonious environment. You are blessed with a high degree of musical talent. You have a good sense of rhythm and harmony. You are a good counselor with an inborn talent for psychology and finely tuned intuition. Page 6 MINOR EXPRESSION The Minor Expression number is based on the current (or short) name; the name you now use to introduce yourself including your last name. 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 appears 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. Your Minor Expression is 16/7 Your short name stimulates your desire for knowledge. It helps you to specialize and to deepen your understanding of a particular subject. It helps you to focus. Carl, your Minor Expression number encourages you to accumulate knowledge regarding the mysteries of life. It makes you a more analytical thinker. You are better able to look below the surface of things. You don’t take things at face value. You may desire more time for private contemplation and meditation. This is a pull to spend more time alone. HEART’S DESIRE 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 your Life Path. It reveals specific talents you possess, which will be helpful to you in dealing with your Life Path. 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 40/4 You like to live a stable, well organized, life. You dislike sudden changes, and prefer orderliness in all things. Carl, you have a systematic mind that is reflected in everything you do. You can establish and maintain a routine, 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 Page 7 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 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. Carl, 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. MINOR HEART’S DESIRE The Minor Heart’s Desire number is derived from the vowels of your current name; the name you now use to introduce yourself. The current name is a refinement of the more complex qualities of your longer name (the full name at birth). It sharpens and bundles the energies that are reflected by your full name. It intensifies certain aspects of your being, and de-emphasizes others. For this reason, the short name often provides insight into what you truly want in life. It also often reveals the extent of your understanding of what you want from this life. It reveals both your strong desires, and the limits you place upon your potential. Your feelings about your current name are different from your full name. It affects how you feel about yourself; it changes your identity slightly. 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. Carl, your Minor Heart’s Desire enhances your intelligence and ability to deal with abstract information. You may find yourself expressing 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. Page 8 PERSONALITY Your Personality number is derived from the consonants of your full name at birth. Your Personality is like a narrow entrance hall to the great room that is your true nature. It is those aspects that you feel comfortable sharing with people at the outset of a relationship. With time and trust, you invite others into the deeper aspects of your nature; you reveal more of who you really are, in effect, your Heart’s Desire, Expression, and so on. Your Personality number often serves as a censoring device, both in terms of what you send out, as well as what you allow to approach. It discriminates in the kinds of people and information you let enter your heart and mind. For this reason, your Personality is usually much more narrow and protective in its definition than the real you. It can screen out some of what you do not want to deal with, people or situations, but it also welcomes those things that immediately relate to your inner nature. Your Personality number also indicates how others perceive you. No one can be objective about himself or herself. Even our closest friends and relatives have trouble describing how they see us. Your Personality is 25/7 You seem mysterious and different. People see you as serious and studious. You are highly independent and self-sufficient. Your exceptional 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. Carl, 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. MATURITY Your Maturity number indicates an underlying wish or desire that gradually surfaces Page 9 around age thirty to thirty-five. This underlying goal begins to emerge as you gain a better understanding of yourself. With self-knowledge comes a greater awareness of who you are, what your true goals in life are, and what direction you want to set for your life. This, in a nutshell, is the gift of maturity: You no longer waste time and energy on things that are not within your own special identity. No matter what your age is at present, your life is being channeled in a specific direction, toward a very specific 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 35/8 As you mature, you will grow in success and financial reward. You will find yourself deepening your commitment to your work. You will find it easier to overcome difficulties that manifest in your path. Your capacity to use power will grow; you will be recognized as a pillar of influence and dependability within your community. You will have to be strong and self-disciplined to avoid sudden painful material losses. Beware of ego-inflation, the surest symptom of an imminent fall. The 8 Maturity Number requires a certain degree of detachment from material success; otherwise it will rule your personality, and make money an obsession. Detachment allows you to remain focused on the higher values of mankind. One of your important motivations should be a desire to build, create, or market in order to enjoy the game of business. Carl, your wisdom and sheer common sense are recognized by many and will attract important positions. It is possible that you will be given responsibility for the care and management of other people’s property. You may also be asked to guide large institutions. If you already have several 8s in your chart, especially in the core numbers, you will have to guard against selfishness, accumulation for the sake of status, and greed. If you have few 8s in your chart, or none at all, your opportunity to achieve the success and financial independence is greatly increased. L/E BRIDGE 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). Page 10 Your Life Path/Expression Bridge is 4 Avoid procrastination, Carl. Try to be more reliable and punctual. Be practical, methodical, and systematic in your endeavors. Keep track of details; avoid chaos. Work on the basics of life. Physical and outdoor activities bring you closer to yourself, so get out in nature, work in the garden, or build a fence. H/P BRIDGE 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 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. KARMIC LESSONS 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. 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 7 Carl, you need to deepen your knowledge and talents in a specific discipline. You lack the will or determination to perfect yourself or a specific talent you possess. Page 11 You must learn to be your own critic, without self condemnation, in order to bring your abilities to their full development. You will learn not to take things at face value. A superficial understanding of important matters will prevent you from experiencing the satisfaction of your true potential. The effects of this Karmic Lesson are diminished if you have at least one 7 among your core numbers (Life Path, Birthday, Hearts Desire, Expression, or Personality Number). HIDDEN PASSION Your Hidden Passion reveals one or more special strengths and talents that you rely upon and are available to you. The Hidden Passion represents your specific field of expertise, or a concentrated talent. Metaphorically, this talent can be seen as having a power all its own to shape your life. Its existence gives you a strong desire to develop and to express that particular ability. Having the talent demands that you express it, that you experience this part of you, and that you live according to its nature. In this way, the Hidden Passion shapes your personality, and guides your life. Your Hidden Passion is 9 Warm, generous and compassionate, you would do well and be quite happy in any undertaking that not only supplies you with a decent living but also is for the good of all. Carl, you are artistic, the nine is responsible for many of our creative geniuses, however these talents are often suppressed, sometimes coming to the surface at middle or old age. You have a strong desire for insight and universal knowledge. You are emotional, your feelings are not always sensible and they too are often suppressed. You can get caught up in dreams and ideals without being practical but with enough fire and enthusiasm to attract support. Your oratorical abilities save many a situation. You are driven to do your own thing and are quite independent. PLANES OF EXPRESSION 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 Page 12 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. Your Plane of Expression Physical 9 Carl, you have a strong presence. You are charismatic and have a dramatic flair in your personality, which may direct you to the theater. You are also drawn to politics, publishing, promotion, and public service … any career that requires a certain amount of time before the public. You are attracted to doing things on a large scale. You are a humanitarian. You are concerned about the well being of society. You have a great deal of compassion, tolerance and generosity. You are highly idealistic and a bit of a dreamer. You are not particularly practical, however. Very often, you are not understood by others, and sometimes considered indifferent and aloof. In some way, you want to please everyone and tend to give promises that may be impossible to keep. If you develop your abilities, you have a significant chance to become famous. Your Plane of Expression Mental 32/5 Carl, you have a quick and highly versatile mind. You can absorb great quantities of information quickly and retain the important points. You are impatient with routine procedures, and will rebel if forced to conform to any existing pattern for very long. You like to be involved in several projects at the same time. You are dynamic and resourceful. Your Plane of Expression Emotional 15/6 You are highly emotional, yet you possess a rare degree of balance to which you can turn. You love family and close friends as few people are able. You worry too much and feel responsible for other peoples actions. You take justice and honesty with extreme seriousness; however, you may be too disciplined. You have artistic talent. Carl, you like to help others more than most, and are willing to sacrifice your own needs. You have an ability for teaching and healing. You need much love and can give the same in return. You are highly idealistic, and very committed once you decide upon your soul mate. Your Plane of Expression Intuitive 9 You love the abstract and have grandiose ideas concerning the spiritual. You can influence large groups of people. Carl, you are an idealist, a dreamer, and not particularly practical. You are very Page 13 impressionable and sometimes put your faith in people who do not deserve it, which makes you vulnerable to being taken advantage of. You must learn to be more discriminating in your dealings with other people. BALANCE People experience different internal responses to life’s challenges. Some withdraw from difficult situations to think them through; others withdraw from their emotions, to try and keep themselves from feeling anything. Some explode with emotions, but allow the explosion to pass quickly. Others linger with their feelings, holding on to them well past the time they should have let them go. Very often, these are conditioned or emotional responses that emerge without thought or analysis. Maturity and self-development help us to learn new and more effective methods of handling our world and the problems we confront. Your Balance number provides you with the guidance on how best to deal with difficult or threatening situations. Your Balance is 10/1 Draw strength from yourself, Carl, but be more willing to share your troubles with friends and family. You can be a loner in the face of problems. This can isolate you during troubled times. Be open to the advice of others. This will widen your perspective on the problem and give you new information on which to base your approach. Strength, creativity, and courage are the arms with which you will win the war. RATIONAL THOUGHT 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 12/3 You are creative, but your thoughts tend to be scattered. You jump around inside your head without much focus. You come up with solutions that reveal an illogical approach, yet they often work. As it applies to you, rational thinking is a contradiction in terminus. You project, interpret, and analyze your projects and problems in a manner that often leaves others flabbergasted. However, you are unbeatable when it comes to shining new and original light on issues; often coming up with unique answers. You have this Rational Thought number in common with a number of famous and original thinkers – and the key-word here is original – throughout history. Page 14 CORNERSTONE 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 C You are intuitive and demonstrative of your feelings. Carl, you have good self-expression and a strong sense of humor. You are inspiring, cheerful, melodramatic, and even extravagant at times. You are outspoken and spontaneous. You are lighthearted and optimistic. SUBCONSCIOUS SELF 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 Subconscious 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. CHALLENGES 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. 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. The Challenges on your life’s path provide specific lessons that you must attend to, and, in order to inspire and help you, life will place you in situations that require the specific characteristics of your Challenge numbers. The four Challenges you are required to overcome during the course of this lifetime will influence you during different periods of your life, except for the Third or Main Challenge, which lasts from birth until death. The Challenges are fluid periods of your life, not confined to specific years so much as general periods. All of your Page 15 Challenges are present at birth, like actors standing in the wings. Your First Challenge is 1 The duration of the First Challenge usually lasts from birth until approximately the age of 30 to 35. You must learn to be independent. You will be forced to stand up for yourself and your rights. You will be faced with situations in which you will have to choose between standing up for what you think is right versus giving in to another person’s demands. You will have to struggle to strengthen and know your own will power. You will have to learn to be firm and trust your judgment. Don’t run with the crowd, be an individual. This whole lesson represents the frontiers of your consciousness. Therefore, you will have to experience much trial and error, sometimes exploding with bursts of aggression, other times being intimidated and letting frustration and anger build within you until you are ready to act on your deepest instincts. Carl, you will learn your own set of values; you will develop into an individual with original and innovative ideas. If you have 1s in your core numbers or in your Hidden Passion this challenge will not be as difficult to learn, or as strongly felt. Your Second Challenge is 1 The Second Challenge usually lasts until the age of about 35 to 40. (This Challenge is the same as your First Challenge, described above.) Your Third Challenge is 0 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 its 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. This is a less demanding challenge. Growth is allowed to take place without one particularly serious obstacle. This does not mean that there will not be challenges on your path, but there is no single and consistent challenge during this period. Carl, you are being challenged to stay faithful and focused on your highest ideals. There is an opportunity to go deeper within yourself, and discover the inner being that is you. Your Fourth Challenge is 2 The Fourth Challenge is most strongly felt during the latter part of our lives, beginning at the age of approximately 45. You are overly sensitive and too aware of other peoples’ expectations. You suppress yourself to avoid feeling conspicuous. You can be overwhelmed by self-consciousness. You fear gossip about you. As a result, you become inhibited. Page 16 All of this results in a suppression of your own individuality and uniqueness. You yearn to blend into the crowd. You let your own feelings and emotions play too big a role. Your hypersensitivity causes fear, timidity and lack of self-confidence, and you experience unnecessary fear and emotional turmoil. Little things seem disproportionately difficult to overcome and sometimes have a paralyzing effect. Jealousy can cause much pain and misunderstanding. These negative aspects of the challenge actually spring in part from positive characteristics you possess, especially your acute awareness and intuition. You are an antenna for other people’s feelings; you know before a word is spoken how they feel. Carl, you lack the inner strength to maintain your own center, and try to conform to the prevailing emotional atmosphere. This challenge makes you understanding and compassionate; you have an enormous empathy for the inner turmoil of others and can do much good for people with emotional problems. PINNACLES 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 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 (from birth until age 30) 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 Page 17 channel between the personal consciousness and the higher realms of the unconscious. Carl, 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 every day. 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 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. Carl, 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 (from age 31 until age 39) is 9 Carl, this is a period in which you must identify with some larger project or goal that is bigger than you. Your greatest satisfaction will be in providing for others, as well as for yourself. Those in business will draw much personal gratification in knowing that they are helping their employees support their families. Those involved in social activism, a particularly appealing choice of careers during the 9 Pinnacle, will feel themselves strengthened by the knowledge that they are advancing the safety Page 18 and well being of society. The 9 Pinnacle is a time in which you apply your energies to the good of the larger community. As a result, there is an element of self-sacrifice present. To some degree, you must subordinate your personal priorities to those of a larger cause. We are not suggesting martyrdom, but making a conscious effort on your part to strike a balance between the good of your milieu and your own personal desires. This is a good time for financial growth and progress in business affairs. It is a period in which you face a large challenge and must give yourself entirely to it. The 9 Pinnacle also promises much reward in drama, writing and art. You have a heightened esthetic sense, and any latent artistic talent you already possess will be enhanced and brought to the surface. If you have been in business, you may suddenly be drawn to the arts as a benefactor or patron, supplying support for theater productions or artists. You will feel an increased sense of social responsibility and compassion for the many. You will want to help those less fortunate than yourself and will likely apply yourself to some social cause or philanthropy. This is a period in which you feel a greater love for the good of your community, country, and the world. Interestingly, you are not restricted by prejudice or boundaries of class or country. You see humanity as a whole. Your love is not personal, however, but for the many. Many under the 9 Pinnacle are drawn to religion or philosophy and have the capacity to spread some doctrine or teaching. In short, you are highly idealistic. Carl, you will likely travel extensively during this period and meet people from many walks of life. No matter what your area of expertise, you have a chance not only for success but for fame. Your Third Pinnacle (from age 40 until age 48) is 2 This Pinnacle causes you to be extremely sensitive, intuitive, and full of insight. It is a period that requires patience and the development of inner awareness. You are being asked to use gentle power and persuasion to obtain your desired goals. Direct approaches, forceful displays, and confrontations will likely work against you. You will find the most satisfactory roles to be supportive. You are now a gifted advisor, a diplomat and a peacemaker. Your insight into other people’s feelings and motivations is so acute that you seem to be able to see right to the core of things. But rather than use these gifts to create differences between people, you must use them to create peace, to mend rifts, to harmonize. Carl, your challenge during this period is to bring balance to duality in every form, and at every level. You will recognize the value of both sides of an argument and be able to see the middle ground where peace can be made. You can create the atmosphere in which both sides can compromise and work harmoniously. You are the glue that keeps people and important projects together. The weaknesses you must face and overcome are too much sensitivity. You may be tempted to indulge your feelings, to be too easily hurt. You may lack self-confidence, especially at the beginning of the Pinnacle when your heightened sensitivity and awareness make you conscious of your own shortcomings. You may succumb to fear and hesitation. All of this can lead to emotional turmoil. You need courage and the willingness to reach out for support. Your sensitivity will Page 19 make you acutely appreciative of beauty and harmonious environments. At the same time, you need beauty and harmony around you. You have an increased appetite for music and the arts in general. You may find that your musical talents coming to the surface. If you do not already play an instrument, give in to any inclination to take one up. A person in a 2 Pinnacle who uses his or her sensitivity, understanding, and insight is very appreciated by others. You may not fully realize just how much others appreciate and respect you. This may cause you to feel undervalued, or that you are not getting the recognition you deserve. You appear shy and humble, particularly if this is your first Pinnacle, but inside there is much pride that must be kept in check. You may want to hide from the tumult of life, or from difficult situations. This may tempt you to color the facts in order to protect harmony. Be careful of this tendency, because it often backfires. You have an eye for precision and detail. Your taste in all aspects of life is enhanced and you possess a certain class that others admire. If you make the most of these qualities, your appearance is considerably improved, making you both attractive and graceful. The world depends on those who maintain harmony and balance. Your Fourth Pinnacle (from age 49) is 1 Carl, this is a period requiring much independence, courage, resiliency, and initiative. You must bounce back after many difficult experiences. The challenge of this Pinnacle is to gain will power. There is not a lot of support from others or from family. You must draw from your own strength. You will have to guard against self pity or surrender. Keep focused on your dreams. This Pinnacle will require an iron will to keep hold of your goals, and also the flexibility to maneuver around difficulties, and bend with the winds of adversity. This is a period of rapid self-improvement and growth. You will be forced to use every talent and capability you possess. You will need to be resourceful. Carl, you must continually put out effort, but with it comes great reward. Without it, there is no accomplishment nor satisfaction, only a negative attitude toward life. Be careful not to become too self centered, headstrong or self important. Be strong but flexible. Be open to the counsel of others, but make up your own mind. The benefit of this Pinnacle number is a strong sense of your individuality and strength. You will know what you are made of. There are many hidden gifts in this period, perhaps the greatest of which is faith. Your Pinnacle provides you with the characteristics of leadership, boldness, and daring. You will have many unconventional ideas and the skill and courage to make them a reality. Your abilities to manage and organize people and institutions are greatly enhanced. You have vision and confidence in the worth of your dreams. These characteristics provide great opportunity for success and major accomplishments. Page 20 CYCLES 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 (from birth until age 30) 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. Carl, you are also under very supportive influences for starting a business. This is a time of progress through flexibility, cooperation, and compromise. Your Second Cycle (from age 31 until age 57) is 5 A period of rapid progress and much change. Carl, you are learning the lesson of freedom. You will travel, move your residence many times, and change jobs. You are footloose. It is a time when you will be free of the burdens of responsibility. You will have a flair for successfully promoting yourself. Your abilities with words will be greatly enhanced. Carl, you can learn foreign languages, write, and edit. You will meet many exciting people, visit foreign lands, and encounter many new ideas. Identify yourself with all that is progressive and farsighted in your field. Seek change and take hold of new opportunities. Your Third and last Cycle (from age 58) is 22 A time of enormous potential for establishing some lasting institution or teaching that will greatly benefit others. Carl, you have the ability to perceive something in the archetypal world and make it manifest in the earth. Your abilities as a builder, organizer, and visionary are at a peak. You are able to perceive a deep need in people and to create a constructive and practical plan to fulfill that need. You will be forced to commit yourself entirely to the work at hand. For many, this dream will last a lifetime and require every ounce of energy and every bit of talent. It is an all-consuming role that beckons, but one that will provide the greatest sense of personal accomplishment and reward. You are able to make a lasting contribution to the well-being of humanity.
