Note: No claims are made for validity. However, this usually freaks people out when they see how accurate it is.
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. Nina, 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 14/5
The key to your personality is freedom. Nina, you love travel, adventure, variety and meeting new people. You possess the curiosity of a cat and long to experience all of life. You love to be involved in several things at the same time as long as you are not tied down to any one area. You like change, new things and new horizons. You make friends easily; your personality is upbeat and often inspiring attracting people from all walks of life. You have a way of words and an uncanny ability to motivate others. You can be in sales, advertising, publicity, promotion, politics or any profession that requires your communication skills and understanding of people. You likely lack discipline and order. You can also be impulsive, doing or expressing things you regret later.
Nina, you are sensual and love to taste all of life. Sex, food and other sensory experiences are essential to the enjoyment of your life. You find it difficult to commit to one relationship, but once committed you can be as faithful as an old dog. You are multi-talented and possess a variety of diverse abilities. However, discipline and focus are the true keys to your success. Without these many of the tasks you begin will remain unfinished and you will fail to realize the true fruits of your abilities. With hard work and perseverance the sky is the limit. You may have been perceived as a wild child by adults and a source of concern by your family. However, do not be obliged to hurry your choice of career. You are often a late-bloomer and need to experience life before you can truly know and commit to your heart’s desire. Your challenge is to learn the true meaning of freedom. Change is constant in your world requiring adaptability and courage. Try to maintain an exercise program, keep your body in shape and limber. The flexibility and durability of your body will promote security and confidence within you. You yearn for freedom and self-employment attracts you powerfully. Your challenge is to settle into one area to cultivate your ability sufficiently to earn a living and attain success. Once you find your niche the motivation and inspiration you supply others will bring you much in return, you will find your friends and colleagues supporting and promoting you on the road to success.
Nina, your 14 Life Path contains a Karmic Debt. This 14 Karmic Debt arises from previous lifetimes during which human freedom has been abused. Those with a 14 Karmic Debt are forced to adapt to ever-changing circumstances and unexpected occurrences. There is an acute danger of falling victim to abuse of drugs, alcohol, and overindulgence in sensual pleasures, such as food and sex. You must put the reins on yourself. Modesty in all affairs is crucial to overcoming this Karmic Debt.
Also important is the need to maintain order in life, and to establish one’s own emotional stability. You must also be willing to adapt to the unexpected occurrences of life, all the while maintaining your focus on your goals and dreams. Flexibility and adaptability are at the very core of this struggle. Orderliness in one’s immediate environment is crucial to maintaining clarity and focus. Mental and emotional stability must be attained in order to avoid being thrown about by the changing fortunes in the external environment.
But the key to the 14 Karmic Debt is commitment. Life will resemble a roller coaster ride, but it will always travel in the right direction if one’s heart is set on what is true and good. Set yourself a high goal, maintain order wherever possible in your life, avoid excessive sensory indulgence, and maintain faith. Above all, do not give up on your dreams and goals. Those with the 14 Karmic Debt will experience life to the fullest, and as long as they maintain a high dream, they will achieve success and great spiritual development.
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, and 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.
Your Birthday is 26
Nina, you have a good sense of money and a talent for business. Your approach to business is original, creative and daring. You possess sound judgment and need to be in charge of whatever you are doing. You are a good manager and organizer. You have a gift for seeing the larger view, but may neglect the details. You are efficient and can handle large projects, enterprises, or businesses.
You are a realist, self-confident, practical, and highly ambitious. Your challenge is to maintain a balance between your material goals and the fundamental human qualities of understanding, compassion and love. Your business life can cause you to become callous and jaded toward others. Do not let the dog-eat-dog attitude become your only means of looking at life. All people have talents and karmic burdens — maintain gratitude for all that you have been given, and share it with others to the extent that you are able.
You can be very diplomatic and tactful. You prefer to get things done by persuasion rather than force.
You are dependable and have high expectations of yourself.
Nina, you have a need for status and may show off the fruits of your labor with an impressive car or house. You can easily overdo such ostentation, and may appear showy in the eyes of others.
You are proud of all you possess. You like to be complemented.
You have strong character, but may be domineering and bossy. You have little patience with weakness, be it your own or someone else’s. Nina, you have to be careful not to be discouraged too easily. Life will test your resolve and your willingness to get up off the floor after being knocked down. But you possess the strength and courage to succeed over any difficulty. You do not express your feelings much. It is hard for you to give up the past.
You are generous and willing to help in a crisis. You can be philanthropic and a pillar of your community.
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 9
Nina, you are the humanitarian. You are attracted to a cause or a movement whose purpose is to make a better world. You are extremely idealistic, sometimes to the point of being naive about people or methods. You have great compassion and seek to create a more humane society. You are drawn to those who suffer physically or are at the hand of injustice. You are the righter of wrongs. Your deepest intention is to transform the world.
You are willing to sacrifice in order to advance your cause. Indeed, this seems to be a theme in your life. From time to time, you find yourself involved in a project whose very life depends upon your willingness to sacrifice something that relates directly to your ego.
You are highly idealistic. You are also a visionary, with the ability to influence and direct the masses. Deep inside, you long for the love and approval of the many, and seek fame.
Part of your hunger for fame has to do with your need for validation; you are your own harshest critic.
Nina, you realize your greatest satisfaction when you are involved in some activity that directly benefits the public good. Politics, law, protection of the environment, teaching, and healing are areas in which you would succeed.
You have a broad view of humanity and are not shackled with prejudice. You should have friends and associates from all walks of life, all colors and religious backgrounds. People fascinate and enrich you. A wide diversity of people and experiences stimulate and bring forth qualities within you that would otherwise lay dormant.
You have an abundance of artistic talent. Many with your Expression number find themselves in the arts, especially in literature, painting, and the visual and performing arts.
The number 9 indicates the completion of a cycle or a block of learning. The 9 Expression suggests that you have reached the point where a breakthrough can occur; during this lifetime you can apply all that you have learned along your evolutionary path and complete a major stage in your development. This is why we find many geniuses with the 9 Expression.
You have the ability to synthesize many diverse bits of knowledge into a unified whole.
Nina, your appearance is important. You are keenly aware of how others perceive you. As a result, others see you as a person with a great deal of control. Conversely, you are charismatic. Despite the cool and distant personality you project, people are attracted to you. You tend to express your love somewhat impersonally. You tend to be preoccupied with your vision or cause, and sometimes overlook the needs of those closest to you. You need to be reminded to give your love more personally and more openly. Ironically, you are a very loving and sincere person, but often neglect to express what you truly feel.
In the same way, you can overlook your own needs. You can avoid sharing of your deeper feelings, creating a reservoir of emotion. You tend to postpone your personal satisfaction in favor of some larger work. Try to be more spontaneous and courageous about showing your real self, including your vulnerability.
Your basic belief in the goodness of humanity is unshakable. This causes you to encourage the best in people, but occasionally makes you vulnerable to being taken advantage of. You are not a very good judge of character.
The surest way to personal satisfaction is for you to become part of some larger social cause. Your nature is to serve. You are happiest when you feel you are helping to advance the human race.
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 9
The influence of this number makes you more concerned with the well-being of others. Nina, your Minor Expression number increases your sensitivity to the needs of society. You feel an urge to serve humanity in a more direct way.
The number 9 helps you to better communicate and understand all types of people.
You are more aware of your artistic talent and the need to express yourself. Your name opens you up to a larger view of life. It attunes you to political movements, philosophical theories, and spiritual practices. You are more sensitive to the larger patterns of humanity.
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 3
Nina, you love a good time. You are generally happy, friendly, and outgoing. You have a gift for gab. You are very witty, creative, and playful. You inspire and entertain people. You are considered by many a great companion.
Many outstanding comedians have this Heart’s Desire. You have a good mental and emotional balance and there is little that gets you down.
You have a gift for self expression and are drawn to the verbal arts — writing, acting, singing, and poetry. You may have a great talent in one of these areas. If your creativity is blocked or suppressed, you tend to daydream and fantasize. Your imagination needs a constructive outlet; otherwise, it may run away with you.
At the same time, you may have great difficulty expressing your deeper feelings and important personal thoughts. You prefer to stay on the surface, entertaining people with your wit.
If you fail to deal honestly with your inner nature, you may succumb to compulsive talking. Such behavior may be merely a way of siphoning off emotional energy that is building beneath your surface. Your deeply felt emotional life cannot be avoided or suppressed. But you possess the talent to channel these feelings into highly creative and artistic form. Art and self-expression are your outlets.
Nina, you need discipline to make full use of your abilities. Too often, you may scatter your energies in many directions, beginning projects that are never finished and never really succeeding in anything.
You success depends on your ability to commit to your work and to see it through to completion. You have so much creativity and inspiring upward energy that you are in desperate need of an anchor. Hard work and discipline serve this purpose and bring out the best in you.
Because you are gifted with such a sparkling personality, you are tempted to stay on the surface and play with life. You are confident and love the attention others give you, but these characteristics can lead to vanity and self-absorption.
Nina, you have the potential to live a very full and successful life thanks to your talent for artistic self expression. The key to your success is a balance between the creative forces and self-disclose.
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 3
Nina, your shortened name adds enthusiasm, creativity, and liveliness to your personality. You have a greater facility with words and a deeper appreciation for the arts. Writing, singing, acting, and dancing all come easier, especially if you already have talent in any of these areas.
Your Minor Heart’s Desire encourages you to be more social, more flexible, and fun-loving. It makes you less serious.
You are wittier and much more inspiring. The 3 provides you with uplifting energy which can motivate others.
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 6
Nina, you radiate understanding and compassion. People sense your warmth and fairness. For this reason, you attract many people who are in need of comfort, including the disadvantaged. People tend to come to you to unload their burdens. You inspire confidence.
You have a fine sense of justice. You do everything in your power to keep the harmony and are even willing to sacrifice your personal desires for the good of others.
You can take this too far, however, sometimes playing the role of the martyr. You have to guard against being taken advantage of. You are not always a very good judge of character. You tend to see the best in others.
You also can become too involved in the lives of others, to your own detriment. (This aspect can be balanced by other numbers in your chart.)
You are hospitable and domestic. You love children and are a good parent. You are romantic, faithful and very protective.
You are artistic. You love music, flowers and gardening. You are a natural interior designer. You have an excellent sense of color and taste.
Nina, you are more concerned with the content of your personality than your appearance, which causes you to be less conscious of the style of your clothes. You are more interested in comfort and the utility of clothing than the statement it makes.
Six Personality Numbers are exceedingly generous. You are not particularly logical when it comes to finances.
You are very vulnerable to praise and criticism. You tend to worry a lot, causing stomach problems.
People see you as a maternal or paternal figure. They want to relax in your presence and unburden themselves. You are the safe port in the crowd.
Your Maturity number indicates an underlying wish or desire that gradually surfaces 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 14/5
There is no slowing you down as you enter maturity. Nina, your influence grows as you become more dynamic and versatile. You now begin to realize your lifelong goal of freedom.
There will be travel and adventure, exciting and unexpected events. Your originality, creativity, and verbal abilities grow stronger.
You will become interested in areas you never before considered. You may have a tendency to become restless and impatient. You may quickly lose interest or become bored with projects that progress slowly. Perseverance is tested, especially because you may find it easy to abandon things that no longer hold your interest. You will have to work to maintain your concentration, discipline, and focus. Do not scatter your energy over to many interests.
This is especially the case with people who have several 5s in their chart, especially among the core numbers.
For those with few fives, the increasing ability to adapt to change and the willingness to take risks provides much spice to life.
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 4
Avoid procrastination, Nina. 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.
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.
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 2
Nina, you must learn to be more diplomatic and tactful, to stay in the background when necessary and sometimes to accomplish something without the need to be praised and rewarded. Learn to be part of a team.
You must learn to be more sensitive to other peoples’ needs and feelings. You will regularly find yourself in a situation where the only road to success is through patience and attention, requiring you to work closely cooperatively with others.
The effects of this Karmic Lesson are diminished if you have at least one 2 among your core numbers (Life Path, Birthday, Hearts Desire, Expression, or Personality Number).
You have a Karmic Lesson 6
Nina, you have a major issue with commitment and responsibility to others.
You have a hard time committing to marriage and other important personal relationships. You have to learn to show true emotion.
You may feel isolated and alone, but do not understand why. The reason is that very often you form relationships yet remain heavily guarded, putting up a show of emotion without truly communicating affection or care. This can make the bond between you and others superficial. You must learn to establish sincere relationships.
Nina, you will learn the importance of close friends and lasting relationships. You will learn to give and, when necessary, sacrifice. This is the one true way to true friendship and lasting love.
The effects of this Karmic Lesson are diminished if you have at least one 6 among your core numbers (Life Path, Birthday, Hearts Desire, Expression, or Personality Number).
You have a Karmic Lesson 8
Nina, you can attract a considerable amount of money and even be a good business person, but you experience major ups and downs in your financial affairs, due largely to your lack of caution in handling your resources.
You are highly independent and do not want to be told how to do things. You have great problems with authority figures. This stems from a kind of know-it-all attitude and stubborn behavior that prevents you from knowing your limits.
You will have to work at knowing how to handle money. In all likelihood, you will attract enough of it, but it has a tendency to slip through your fingers. This Karmic Lesson forces you to learn your limitations, and the limitations of your resources.
Learn to be efficient.
The effects of this Karmic Lesson are diminished if you have at least one 8 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 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 1
Nina, 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.
Nina, you are a survivor, a warrior, a leader. Many great athletes and politicians have this number as a Hidden Passion.
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 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.
PLANE OF EXPRESSION PHYSICAL
Your Plane of Expression Physical is 4
Nina, you have a great deal of energy an determination. You are eminently practical and organized. You are good with details and able to stick to routine procedures.
You have excellent concentration and are quite serious. You can be tenacious when confronted with an obstacle or an adversary.
You are loyal and honest, warm and generous. You dislike changes and can be rigid and inflexible. You are a good debater. You must control your desire to dominate people and situations.
You appreciate traditions and well established routines.
PLANE OF EXPRESSION MENTAL
Your Plane of Expression Mental is 14/5
Nina, 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.
PLANE OF EXPRESSION EMOTIONAL
Your Plane of Expression Emotional is 9
Nina, you love the many and want to dedicate yourself to the service of those less fortunate than yourself. You are willing to make great sacrifices for a worthy cause, and in fact draw enormous satisfaction from knowing that your life has made a positive difference to others.
Conversely, you have difficulty in one-to-one relationships, especially relationships with the opposite sex. You are viewed as impersonal and sometimes a bit aloof. You can also be hard to get to know.
You are a person possessed by your dream and have trouble with relationships that are not an integral part of that dream.
You appear to others as self-sufficient, which can make close relationships a little more difficult since people want to be needed.
You have enormous artistic talent, especially in a variety of arts, such as interior design, photography, acting, and writing.
Nina, you have great compassion and idealism. In fact, you are so idealistic that you
can be a bit impractical and lose touch with the ground. You need a practical,
down-to-earth cause to be most effective.
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 6
Nina, your strength lies with understanding people and the underlying conditions of a conflict. But you can rely too heavily on friends and family to provide you solace instead of handling the situation directly and responsibly. Nina, you may be too likely to retreat to the good feelings provided by people not involved in your situation.
Responsibility is the issue here. Nina, you helped create the situation in the first place, and are an essential part of the solution. Accept your role.
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 46/1
Nina, you are an independent thinker, original, and not easily influenced by others. You tend to pursue a line of thought stubbornly, and you can be dominating in intellectual discussions.
You tend to solve problems and plan projects with a straight-forward approach. You rarely allow yourself to be distracted. Quite often, you realize at some later stage, that you did not pay enough attention to the available alternatives, and a project may find itself stuck with no chance of further advancement. When you find yourself facing such a situation your frustration tends to be considerable but of short duration. You simply start all over. You do not give up easily.
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 N
Nina, you are intuitive, creative and original. You are unconventional. You are quite opinionated and change your mind only after much discussion. You like to keep track of your life, by writing in a diary for instance. You are sensual and may be involved in many love affairs during your life.
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 6
You like to help others, sometimes to the extent that you do not pay enough attention to your own needs. Nina, you are primarily concerned with your home and your family. Everything else comes second. You radiate love and genuine concern for others. During times of distress you turn to your family and friends. You are responsible and willing to sacrifice for others.
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 Challenges are present at birth, like actors standing in the wings.
THE FIRST CHALLENGE
The duration of the First Challenge usually lasts from birth until approximately the age of 30 to 35.
Your First Challenge is 5
Nina, you are in danger of becoming a rolling stone. Your desire to experience and enjoy life can overwhelm every other priority you have. Your need for freedom dominates you. You want to try everything and go everywhere.
You must guard against overindulgence — and even dependence upon — alcohol, food, drugs, and sex.
You must work at establishing and maintaining long- lasting relationships. Be tolerant and understanding. This will enable you to have people in your life who are more than mere company.
Nina, you need to discipline your urge to change every situation that does not immediately suit you. Stick with projects, maintain your friendships, don’t abandon people or situations the minute they become the slightest bit difficult.
If few fives are in the chart you have a fear of change and can not let go of people and situations. This holds you in the past, restricting your growth. Learn to take prudent risks and be more adventurous.
THE SECOND CHALLENGE
The Second Challenge usually lasts until the age of about 35 to 40.
Your Second Challenge is 5
(This Challenge is the same as the First, as described above.)
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.
Your Third Challenge is 0
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.
Nina, 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.
THE FOURTH CHALLENGE
The Fourth Challenge is most strongly felt during the latter part of our lives, beginning at the age of approximately 45.
Your Fourth Challenge is 0
(This Challenge is the same as the Third, as described above.)
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. Nina, 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 31) 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. Nina, 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 with this highly
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.
Nina, 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 32 until age 40) is 11
(This Pinnacle is the same as the First, as described above.)
Your Third Pinnacle (from age 41 until age 49) is 22
Nina, this is a demanding time in which all your personal power comes to the surface and is made available to you. At the same time, you face an enormous challenge in which all that power is needed. This challenges is both physical and spiritual. The physical side is obvious in some large enterprise or dream that you are struggling to make manifest. The spiritual side is more hidden, but just as important, in that one must deliver the full wealth of his spiritual understanding and vision to create something great and lasting for the general well being of society.
Nina, your mental powers are greatly enhanced. At the same time, your determination and efficiency are proportionately increased, making you the master builder. The 22 is a Master Number, which means that you must perceive something large in the archetypal world and materialize it.
Everything you focus on is large — your plans are big and cover long periods of time; you envision making an enormous and lasting impact on the world. At the same time, your problems and challenges are equally large. You will have to devote yourself entirely to this dream. Without a full commitment to your largest ambitions, you will slip into frustrations and the world of broken dreams.
This is why the 22 Pinnacle is so demanding — nothing less than everything you’ve got is necessary to bring forth your full potential, and the gift you must give to the world. This is a Pinnacle of extremes.
You are not alone, however, in your struggle. There is much spiritual and material support to help you realize your plans. People are attracted to you who intuitively understand your larger purpose. Nina, you gain a close following of friends and supporters who feel enriched by participating in the dream you have articulated.
Courage is essential. You need confidence and faith to help you endure the challenges of the period and help you overcome the many obstacles in your path.
You are eminently practical during this period. Your approach to problems is methodical but bold. You are careful of details, yet courageous in your attack on the problems at hand. It is a period in which you must dive in, never hesitating over the possible consequences.
Your personal life will likely take a back seat to the excitement of the dream.
This is a Pinnacle of enormous potential requiring much effort. Nina, your day has arrived. Now you must make the most of it.
Your Fourth Pinnacle (from age 50) is 6
Under this Pinnacle you will be very involved with family, friends, and your community. Nina, 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.
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. Nina, 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.
Nina, 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.
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 31) is 3
A time of heightened self expression and much social support. Any ability you possess in the arts, especially in writing, acting, or dance, will be brought to new heights and meet with much reward. Nina, you are socially active as never before. You will appear to others as charming, attractive, and even charismatic. Be careful not to waste your energies on too many superficial projects or relationships, however. The time requires discipline and focus in order to make the most of the great upward energy that is filling your life.
Your Second Cycle (from age 32 until age 58) is 8
You are under an extremely benevolent period for work, career, and financial reward. The key is hard work and the willingness to again dedicate yourself after setbacks or difficulties. Nina, you will have greatly enhanced abilities as a manager, organizer, and financial planner. You have a gift for seeing the broad picture and carrying out bold plans. You can gain financial freedom during this period. Business and career activities go well, but require much attention and commitment. You are being pushed to take control of your career or enterprise and bring it to new heights. It is a time when power falls to you, but must be used wisely and with purpose.
Your Third and last Cycle (from age 59) is 3
(This Cycle is the same as the First, as described above.)
