how you will vibrate energy and what you will attract.
Reinvigorated with the Pythagorean system, numerology has
flourished, remaining largely untouched since the days of
Pythagorus and enjoying worldwide recognition. Along with
the practices of Feng Shui and Astrology, numerology is
often used by business tycoons, entrepreneurs and spiritualists
to increase their levels of success and happiness.
By far the most popular system found in numerology, the
Pythagorean conversion chart is featured directly below.
Easy to use and understand, it incorporates the numbers
one to nine in its conversion system. This is the one I
always use in my readings with you.

into a number. Using the Pythagorean chart I can change each
letter of my name into a number.

Meaning Of Numbers
In numerology, each of the numbers 1 through 9 has an inherent
meaning that is found within its vibration. The meaning of
each of the numbers is the basis of numerological analysis.
Let's take a closer look at what each number symbolizes or
represents to you.
The Number One
The first of all numbers, the Number One is also the Leader
of all numbers. People with the number one in their charts
are creative, energetic, independent, and intuitive. These
are the people that exude self-confidence from their every
pore and silently beckon us to follow them. But even though
number ones tend to be very generous, they can also become
self-obsessed and insolent, deluding themselves into believing
they are almighty and all-knowing.
The Number Two
Almost the complete opposite of the number one, The Number
Two represents synergy and diplomacy. Not interested in becoming
great leaders, people with the number two in their charts
are content to work behind the scenes supporting and encouraging
others. Gentle, sweet, supportive and loving, number twos
have a tendency to allow others to walk all over them and
influence their already fragile self-confidence and self-esteem.
Depression and low self-confidence may become a problem for
the number two.
The Number Three
The Number Three is exuberance incarnate. Happy-go-lucky and
full of life, people with a number three in their charts are
the consummate "life of the party!" Lucky, creative,
and very extroverted, number threes love the finer things
in life, spending money as quickly as they receive it. A flirt
with his or her head in the clouds (can you say "delusions
of grandeur?"), the three person has the negative tendency
to become overly critical and sharp-tongued. Their moods are
also known to fluctuate.
The Number Four
The Number Four represents pragmatism, security and stability.
A hard worker with a practical mind geared toward the future,
a person with the number four in their chart is the quintessential
"head of the family" who looks after those he or
she cares about. The number four's strengths are its steadfastness
and tenacity; its weaknesses, rigidity and lifelessness. Along
with that streak of practicality comes the tendency to be
a bit of a bore.
The Number Five
The Number Five symbolizes change, rebellion, and freedom.
People with the number five in their charts value freedom
above all else, oftentimes rebelling against the status quo,
going where no one has dared go before, and refusing to allow
others to dictate any control over them. Number fives often
have trouble with commitment and can be talented at many things,
but specialized in none. Because of this lack of commitment,
people with the number five in their charts can begin to feel
overwhelmed, having started many projects but finishing none.
The Number Six
The Number Six represents the home, family, love, beauty and
romance. People with the number six in their charts are very
loving, kind, and gentle. They are affectionate and tender
and are natural born parents. And yet, since most of their
decisions come from their heart it may be impossible to reach
these soul creatures with reason. Add to this their unrelenting
and fixed natures, and they can become difficult to live with,
possibly even leaving the nest if they feel the love is no
longer deep enough to sustain them.
The Number Seven
The Number Seven is often seen as the most eccentric of all
the numbers. Mystical, deep, analytical, wise and intuitive,
people with the number seven in their chart are the quintessential
loners who seemingly abandon society in exchange for their
own personal quests of knowledge and wisdom. But the number
seven has many gifts and talents to share with the world and
often makes a wonderful teacher. The number seven can become
a bit out of touch with the needs of others if they withdraw
too much; a balance should be sought.
The Number Eight
The Number Eight is one of the most powerful numbers in numerology.
People with the number eight in their charts are born for
achievement, success and leadership. They thrive on rising
through a hierarchical organization and manipulating those
working alongside of them to become part of their own vessel.
They love money and grandeur and may stop at nothing to achieve
their desired success. Their life lesson is how to hold onto
this money they earn. They also play with people from all
walks of life and cannot always blend them together in one
The Number Nine
As the number one is the beginning of all things, the Number
Nine is the end. It represents humanitarianism, compassion,
tolerance and both spiritual and material success. People
with the number nine in their charts are idealistic mystics
that long to leave the world a better place. They are blessed
with more charm and compassion than all of the numbers added
together. Unfortunately, they can become too idealistic, forcing
their beliefs onto others and/or becoming prejudiced against
those who do not follow the path they themselves have chosen.
The Number Eleven (11= 2)
The Number Eleven represents spiritual truth and communication.
People with a number eleven in their charts are often highly
intuitive and have a great message to share with the world.
However, they may never be heard unless they can overcome
their impulsivity and tendency to transpose their faults onto
The Number Twenty-two (22 = 4)
Whereas the master number eleven has a message to convey to
the world, the Number Twenty-two has come back to build something.
People with the number twenty-two in their charts long to
leave something grand and everlasting behind them that will
hopefully remain standing long after they have gone. They
have an amazing ability to turn dreams into reality. However,
twenty-twos can be very sensitive, falling victim to the demands
placed upon them by others and becoming generally overwhelmed,
failing to complete their dream.
The Life Path Number
Now that we know what numerology is and where it came from,
let's move on to the good stuff--let's discover your destinies!
Of all the numbers found in numerology, none is hailed as
highly as the "Life Path Number." Often found next
to our horoscopes in magazines and bookstores, this single
digit number is considered by the average person to be the
whole of numerological theory. In this lesson, we will take
a closer look at the Life Path Number, discovering both its
breadth and its limitations.
How Do We Calculate The Life Path
In order to calculate the Life Path Number all you will need
to know is your date of birth. You do not need to know the
time you were born, whether or not the moon was full that
particular day, or which planets were squaring the planet
the exact minute you were born. The simplest way to demonstrate
how to calculate the Life Path Number is to give you an example.
We can use this birth date to do so.
Birth Date = February 26, 1975
The first step in calculating the Life Path Number is to convert
all of the birth date into a numerical value. Therefore, the
month in which we were born must also be translated into a
number. Most of us are familiar with the numbers of each month,
but just in case you are not familiar with this system, I'll
list them below.
is important to note that if you were born in either the month
of October, November or December you must reduce your birth
month to a single digit. For instance December = 12, but in
numerology we would need to REDUCE that number to a single
digit. We would do this by adding the 1 and 2 to get a 3 (i.e.
December = 12 = 1 + 2 = 3).
So, back to our example
February 26, 1975 becomes 02, 26, 1975. We then add up all
2 + 2 + 6 + 1 + 9 + 7 + 5
= 3 + 2
This Life Path Number, then, is the number 5. For this course
we will use anotherbut very similarmethod of calculating
our Life Path Numbers. We will separate each of the elements
of our birth dates. You can add up your day of birth, month
of birth, and year of birth and then add them together. For
February 26, 1975
= 2 + (2 + 6) + (1 + 9 + 7 + 5)
= 2 + 8 + (22)
= 2 + 8 + (2+2)
= 2 + 8 + 4
When calculating the Life Path Number, yes, we want to reduce
it to a single digit. But, the double-digit number also holds
information from our past and the lessons we need to learn.
Henceforth, this Life Path Number would be written as follows:
Life Path Number = 14/5
Birth Date = April 25, 1975
= 4 + (2 + 5) + (1 + 9 + 7 + 5)
= 4 + 7 + (22)
= 4 + 7 + (2 + 2)
= 4 + 7 + 4
This person's Life Path Number would then be 15/6.
Life Path Numbers
What are each of our paths and lessons? Related to each number's
strengths and weaknesses, the Life Path Numbers encourage
us to perfect our imperfect selves. In addition to the lessons
it strives to teach us, it illuminates the future paths our
lives will follow, the destinies we are heading toward.
Life Path Number One
Your life path will take you to the heights of independence
and leadership. But before you can attain your destined success,
you must learn to practice moderation, develop patience and
accept your limitations. You must also resign yourself to
the fact that the world does NOT revolve around you.
Life Path Number Two
Your life path is one of harmony, teamwork and cooperation;
you are destined to unite people in common good. But in order
to succeed in your life path you will need to learn to say
"NO," refusing to allow others to take advantage
of your generosity and gentility. You also need to get your
head out of the clouds too much fantasy could keep
you from actualizing your goals.
Life Path Number Three
Your life path is one of exuberance, spontaneity, joy and
inspiration. However, you must learn reliability and responsibility,
growing to respect others through honesty and kindness. In
other words, try and curb that blunt tongue of yours!
Life Path Number Four
Your life path will be marked by hard work and steadfastness,
laying down strong foundations and building a steady future.
With your 4 Life Path Number you will need to learn to accept
change, however, refusing to dwell in "what was"
and may never be again. Try to take life a little less seriously
and remember that it may be better to be kind and loved rather
than strict and righteous.
Life Path Number Five
Your life path is sure to be defined with change, rebellion,
and freedom. But if you are to ever truly enjoy your desired
freedom you must learn personal discipline in achieving a
high level of commitment to ONE ideal, dream, and/or goal.
You are in danger of floundering through life jumping from
job to job, passion to passion, and relationship to relationship
without achieving any real success. You must choose!
Life Path Number Six
Your life path is trying to teach you about harmony and responsibility
and the balance between work and home. You need to learn all
of these above qualities and priorities, growing to understand
your own cycles of mood, enthusiasm, creativity and ability.
Get in touch with your own sense of self and harmony and USE
it! This doesn't mean that you must be a single-faced docile
creature, for as a number 6 you have many sides to your nature.
But, you still MUST learn harmony, synergy, tranquility, and
responsibility if you are ever to find your life's true success.
Life Path Number Seven
Your life path is the path of the explorer and wisdom seeker
who instinctively understands the subtle intricacies and spiritual
truths of life. But your sensitivity often leaves you feeling
overwhelmed and if you are to achieve your life path's success
you need to sit down and truly ponder your goals and desires
in life. You need to remove yourself from the tedious and
overwhelming demands of your daily activities and seek the
Life Path Number Eight
Your life path will be one of authority, mastery and dominance.
But you are in danger of valuing money and material worth
over the inherent value of life and beauty. You must learn
to accept others as they are splendid in all of their
different skins and coats ensuring that you don't begin
to hail conformity above individuality. Before you can find
your life path's truest measure of success, you will need
to master justice and compassion.
Life Path Number Nine
The life path of the number 9 is one of great love and compassion,
leading you to an unconditional acceptance of all humankind.
Before you are able to give this of yourself, however, you
will need to begin looking beyond yourself and developing
a kinship with and love for others, learning to accept that
their path in life may not be the same as yours and that perhaps
that just might be okay.
Master Life Path Numbers
If you have a Master Life Path number much will be expected
of you in this lifetime. Read below to discover your destiny.
Life Path Number Eleven
Your life path will lead you to spiritually motivate and inspire
the entire breadth of humanity. You are destined to be a great
leader but if you are ever to truly succeed you must learn
to finish what you start, stay centered and stop transposing
your own faults onto those around you. You may be in danger
of losing yourself to irrational fears, imaginary limitations
and a misery caused all on your own.
Life Path Number Twenty-two
Your life path is to be one of life's great creators. You
will help build the growing foundation of our world and universe
by using your incredible organizational skills and humanitarian
ideals. But, as with all master numbers, you must learn to
stay centered and balanced. You are in great danger of becoming
cynical and may destroy all that you build before the world
ever reaps its award and/or glory. You must learn to have
faith, both in yourself and in those around you.
Your Most Significant Year
In addition to determining both your life's paths and lessons,
your birth date can also be used to determine the most significant
year of your life. By using the following formula you can
easily attain this interesting piece of information.
Using this birth date (February 26, 1975) as an example once
again, I will show you how you can calculate your own "most
1975 + 26 + 02 = 2003
This was a great year for this person!
