Numerology 101 – What is numerology and how does it affect me, my life, my relationships and how I interact with other people?
To those of you who are brand new to the concept of Numerology...
Hi everyone don’t worry If you are wondering what Numerology is or what it does. I will share with you all that numerology is for me and all that I have understood about it. I have taken the time to shed some light on the matter and give context to the special nature of the numbers themselves. Then you can decide if you as an individual resonate with this beautiful ‘Tool’ or not.
We don’t all have to understand every last detail about it. But the fact that this tool can be used to outline ‘You’ and your own special and unique attributes is what I personally love about it. It provides a foundation for all of us to understand our divine patterning; why we make certain choices and why we attract certain people and certain numbers into our lives.
Numerology could be seen or understood as a divine code that has been used for centuries to help define certain patterns at play in certain events. It has been used to define and ‘see’ how certain people could impact the outcome of an event -why they are attracted to that place at that time and how this works on the basis of the numbers. You will have seen that I have made posts around days we celebrate and the numbers that underpin their very ‘specialness’.
What it does
We are all novices at everything until we understand it or at least see the benefits of it! Life is so full of amazing learning’s and teachings.
Numerology ultimately teaches us about ourselves, our loved ones and our families. It explains why we do or why we do not connect with certain people. Why we attract certain situations to ourselves based on our own personal lessons. It helps to define why we are unique and special. Why perhaps we are soulmates or mirrors for each other and sometimes why a karmic connection exists between certain people and thus why a lesson of that sort arises.
Bottom line numerology provides us with the fundamental grain of our nature. Something we are born with something that follow us through each day for the rest of our lives. By understanding our numbers, they provide us with the skills and ability to work with our patterns. Essentially this empowers us with the ability to change our reactions and actions where we feel they are needed.
An example; lets say you are a naturally fiery and passionate person, by knowing the shadow angle of this quality within your numbers, you are able to mitigate acting from aggression by focusing on how to deal with the feeling instead of being reactive. You can then set better boundaries for others and yourself.
The basic meaning of the numbers
The number 1 is the pioneer, the leader. It is fundamentally individualistic and is also the first.
It is the magician, the creator in its singular force. The negative attributes of the 1 are sometimes being lethargic, lonely and occasionally depressed. It can sometimes have a low vibration… especially if the one is purely focused on material things.
The number 2 is the giver, the nurturer. It’s the number that works for partnership, commitment and being loving in a relationship. The negative attributes of the 2 is that they can be codependent, needy and overly emotional at times .
The number 3 is a hard worker, a doer, a creative. They are passionate in nature. The negative attributes of the 3 is that they can be workaholics, fanatical, blunt and their passion can turn to fire.
The number 4 is stable orderly, routined and fundamentally disciplined. The negative attributes of the 4 is that they can be ‘anal’, too rigid, a bit boring and can get stuck in routine.
The number 5 is the freedom seeking rebel, life questioner, fun loving .The 5 loves adventure and dislikes anything that could cage them or trap them -this could include commitment and marriage. The negative attributes of the 5 are that they hate structure and their rebellious nature could put them in a position where they lack commitment and destroy or sabotage the good things and need to break free so as not to feel like a bird in a cage. They can also take fun and partying to an extreme.
The number 6 is all about love, about family, and about humanitarian ideals. It is number that resonates with compassion. The negative attributes of the 6 is that it can be lazy, live in a dream world and often, not stand up for themselves to keep the peace. It is innately adverse to conflict .
The number 7 is the deep thinker and 7s are focused task and project orientated. The other side are qualities like being a loner, somewhat reclusive or even a hermit.7s can also cut off or be emotionally detached.
The number 8 is the dependable and the infinity and the wealth creator. It is a powerful leader and hard worker. The negative attributes of the 8 is that it can be obsessive and shallow. It can work purely for material wealth and value very little else.
The number 9 is the ‘magic’ transformer. It holds the belief and value that the world is its oyster. It is a number of magic and achievement .The negative attributes of the number 9 is mirroring and absorbing negativity around one and taking a long time to learn fundamental lessons. It can come across as frustratingly naïve.
Transcendental Numerology and how this works
When I do a number analysis I look at the upfront number, as well as the shadow or submissive number. I work these numbers out to equal a 9. Here is an example. If someone is born on the 1st of the month their shadow number will be an 8 (1+8=9). If someone is born on the 2nd of the month their shadow number will be a 7 (2+7=9). 3 is 6, 4 is 5, 5 is 4, 6 is 3, 7 is 2, 8 is 1 and 9 remains 9. So the 9 upfront number and shadow number is 9.
Each number has a positive list of aspects as well as a more negative list of aspects. These provide a pattern or foundation for clients to interpret and balance all the aspects of themselves within their lives Either aspect of the number gives insight into how we engage with ourselves, our partners, our friends, situations and our environments.
At this point, I would like to state that there is absolutely no judgement made with regards to people and their numbers we each are on our own unique journey at our own pace .
The aim of numerology as a tool is for each person to find the value within themselves and know how they can work to change things in their lives that they are not happy with. It is important to know that there is good and bad in all of us. What numerology provides us as a working tool and the insight and recognition of these traits We need to forgive ourselves and learn along the way and numerology provides us with the platform to change the things we don’t like or that are not good for us by choosing to utilize our other characteristics. it is more about finding the perfect balance within the two extremes.
The Application of the formula
Transpersonal Numerology outlines all of this and more. It is a special and unique tool that excites me. The day, month and year of your birth is your personal code. You could call it your unique Pin Code. Its your very own Blueprint that helps you define who you are and who you can be!
Your personal outline as an individual lies within the numbers of the Day you were born.
Your Month determines your Family dynamics and your interaction within a home environment. Your Year represents your World and Career and how you present yourself in this realm of your life. By adding up your Day your Month and your Year we can reduce it to a single number.This number is your Life Path number which is your Soul Journey and your authentic Life Purpose .
What Happened to Me
When I came across numerology, I found that in fact the description of myself was just so apt and spot on. I started working out the numbers of my friends and family, and found their descriptions completely accurate and true. They began to want more and I started working out compatibilities and synergies .. I started seeing which of my friends were compatible with their friends and their partners and if not, how to work around this by moving into the other attributes of their numbers.
By understanding Myself through my birthday Pin code and getting to see and understand other people in my life was just incredible for me! It allowed me to find comfort and heal the things within myself that had bothered me since my childhood. It gave me the ability to change and evolve how I interact and react by knowing my own shortfalls. This made me want to use numerology to help other people.
So to summarise
Numerology can help you understand yourself and your family dynamics
It can help you understand your family members and your partners
It can explain your personality dynamics and help you grow and improve yourself
Questions people ask ...
How can all people born on the same day, be the same?
All people born on the same day are not the same even though many of the personality traits may be similar or have overlaps. We each choose which of the aspects of our numbers we choose to ‘tap’ into . Thus, each person, even with the exact same numbers, is on their own unique path. They will have similarities, but be innately different.
How can twins be so different? If they were born on the same day, how could they be opposite in personality?
Twins may be very similar or even opposite in nature due to the surface/upfront and submissive/shadow numbers we each have. Meaning where one twin born may be a 2 personality type which is partner orientated, doting, caring and nurturing -the other twin could be more the submissive 7, which is the deep thinker quiet and more detached persona. Thus being almost opposite in personality at times.
How do I know if I am with my soul mate?
If you make a 9 together in any area, that indicates soul mates and that is a particularly special connection. Eg: Your birthday equals a 1 and your partners birthday equals an 8. (1+8=9)
How do I know if there is Karma between my partner and I?
If you make a 7 together there is past life karma. If there are 4s and 8s together, there are also karmic lessons to be experienced.
What’s to be gained from your Reading?
You will learn all about you and about all your extremes. There is something to be said to realizing that you are who you are by some grand design! This generally helps for you to heal from things you may have always carried in your heart and in your life.
Through new awareness you can be a more balanced version of yourself. You can understand your strengths and work on your weaknesses. You can learn about yourself and see why you are the way you are. Self-awareness is necessary in a process of growth. It’s about releasing judgment of the self and releasing the idea of perfection in you and in everyone else and celebrating our uniqueness and who we each are in the greater scheme of things in this life.
Valentine’s Day 14 Feb 2019
The Numerology of Valentine’s Day is wonderful and very apt.
With the 14/5 vibration(1+4=5) coupled with this years 3 vibration, we need to focus on passion, fun and creativity. Celebrations are the sentiments of this vibration, which brings extra lightness, frivolity, happiness and joy into our partnerships and relationships.
The questions we ask ourselves this year are:
-How do we enjoy freedom and our rebel fun loving side in the 5 aspect and be spontaneous in our love relationships to keep the fire alive?
-How do we enjoy our romantic partnerships in the 2 and honour that commitment and be the nurturing partner?
-How do we enjoy passion and creativity of the 3 and live from our mind body and soul in authenticity?
-How do we express joy through our partnerships, yet honour ourselves with the total 1 vibration of the day(5+2+3=10/1)?
Before we analyse all you ‘lovers’ out there on Valentine’s Day and your crazy antics to demonstrate your love this 2019… let’s take a look back into the history of the day and get the feel of the story and myth behind the whole ordeal that is valentines day and how it all came to be!
If we think about the history of Valentine’s Day, it’s all about the expression of love to a romantic partner or someone of interest.
The feast of Lupercalia was on the 15th of Feb and the day was moved to the 14th by the Christians who named it in honour of St Valentine.
This meant that it was a celebration initially containing the 6 energy vibration (1+5=6), which numerology-wise means love, passion, family, harmony, being social and friendships. A true celebration of love; rather than the 5 ‘rebel’ energy it is today when the date changed to the 14th.
A 5 energy being impulsive, freedom seeking, unconventional and to a large extent, a pursuer of innate dreams, without conforming to society’s norms; therefore the 5 energy will go for what it wants without much thought of consequences.
The gathering and the feast disappeared and it became secret roses, love letters, cards, chocolates and the blind folded cupid which aligns with the vibration of the fun loving and a more mischievous 5 energy which involves the secret declarations of love.
The story goes that Emperor Claudius killed two men in the 3rd century on Feb 14th in different years and both men were named Valentine!
The Emperor had a rule that banned soldiers from marrying as he felt that married soldiers were ‘bad’ soldiers and not able to fight as well as the non-married men!
Valentine, one of his soldiers broke the rule and got married in secret and was thrown into jail and sentenced to death. In jail whilst awaiting his demise, he fell in love with the jailer’s daughter and left a romantic good bye letter to her, signed from “Your Valentine“, and was executed on Feb 14th, year 496AD
Thus, in the tradition of Valentine, the feelings of love are often ones hidden or declared in secret! To this day people leave secret notes or cards or send secret red roses and expressions of their love.
Now for the Numerology. This year is a 14/2/2019 which is a 5/2/3 vibration.
The number 14 is a 5 made up by adding the 1 and 4.
It is an unconventional, intellectual rebel. Its about being light hearted and all about spontaneity toward the 2 (partnership vibration) or a person that you would like to be in a Romantic partnership with. 2 aspects are all about partnerships. Its about the significant other and nurturing yourself and them in a mutual and equal environment. This year, coupled with the 3 year vibration; creativity is key in expressing your joy, in having fun and being passionate.
Valentines Day 2019 should be wonderful and crazy with a combination of the 5 rebelliousness and the 3 joy and passion, highlighting the fun frivolity of it all!
This year, use this energy to create a real fairy tale romance or romantic moment. Make your ‘love’ go the distance.
Or will it simply be a joyous love affair?
Either way, Valentines Day should be extra wild and fun.
The 5 is the rebel, the proposer, the flirt, the person who will risk it all in the name of love and steal a romantic moment. Maybe even propose in secret.
If one is already in a stable, love relationship this can be a fun time of spoils and a revival of passion, love and romance. Be spontaneous, re-ignite the fire and have fun with each other. Let this year be a fun and loving celebration of who you are as a couple.
The full vibration for this Valentines day is a 1. It is a magical number, the magician energy, and it tells us that anything is possible. If you dream it you could have it. It also tells us to spoil ourselves a little… so buy some chocolates and some roses for you too. If you don’t have a secret or full-time Valentine… spoil yourself and give yourself the love you deserveJ
This creativity is fabulous and can emphasise all the excitement and passion!
So this Valentines Day, let it be filled with fun and laughter. Let it be full of romance and dreaming your dreams of ‘love’. Ignite the passion within your heart and turn some of your fiery dreams into reality.
Do you notice the ‘time’ at a certain time each day or notice number plates and numbers that constantly repeat in a certain sequence? I have always found them fascinating.
On my own journey I noticed this and became conscious of this repetition of numbers and by studying Numerology took this awareness of numbers to a new level. I felt as though the numbers held messages from the Spiritual realm like a Morse code. These numbers that I was seeing were so powerful. Amazingly via our very own birthday numbers we can actually be assessed into numerological personality Archetypes and all sorts of behavioural characteristics can be ascertained. Thus the Repeated numbers really fascinate me .
The more one is aware of these sequences the more one becomes aware and can use them to guides oneself intuitively.
