Many numerologists use four or five core numbers. I use six. These numbers are the most important part of a numerology chart. They give you and your numerologist an overview of who you are. As each numerologist has his or her own names for most of these numbers, I will also give the method I use to find each number.
Self-expression (all of the letters in your name): This number describes how you usually relate to the world. It includes many abilities as well as personality traits. For instance, a 5 self-expression indicates the ability to handle sudden changes, as well as the trait of having a variety of interests.
Personality (the consonants in your name): This number describes how other people tend to see you. Quite often, the client who is receiving the report looks at the reading associated with this number and says, "I'm not like that!" However, that client's friends and family will think that it describes the client very well. For instance, a 1 personality will be seen as a leader, and will often find themselves having to take on leadership roles whether they want to or not.
Soul (the vowels in your name): This number describes how you see yourself. Unless they are very close indeed, few of a client's friends will think that this number describes the client. However, the client will see it as a very good description of himself or herself. For instance, a 4 soul will be very good at dealing with detailed tasks.
Life Path (your full birthdate): This number indicates the area in which you are likely to do most of your work, whether it is for money or not. Abilities are often described with this number. For instance, a 6 life path is likely to become a nurse or a teacher - or be perfectly happy as a stay-at-home parent. The 6 gives the person the abilities necessary to do well in such roles.
Birthday (the day of your birth - not the month or the year): This number indicates abilities that you will develop in your late 20s or early 30s. Quite often, these abilities are picked up as hobbies. For instance, someone with an 8 birthday is likely to pick up practical skills, such as handicrafts, that could result in greater funds or status.
Maturity (your full name plus your full birthdate): This number indicates the goal you are working towards. You could consider it your destiny. This number does not usually take full effect until the client is in his or her 60s. For instance, someone with a 2 maturity is likely to find himself or herself working with others on a regular basis during his or her senior years.
Obviously, these are very brief descriptions. I usually write at least a third of a page of description for each of these numbers in one of my reports. However, this brief version should give you a general idea of what you should expect in any numerology report.
Many people do not realize what a numerology chart can do for them. Of course, you can always get a numerology chart done just for the fun of it. However, there are several other reasons to get a chart done. Here are a few that some of my clients use:
You have probably heard of the daily horoscope for astrology. You probably even know your sun sign, even if you don’t believe that the alignment of the planets can affect you. Numerologists have a similar concept: the personal year, month, and day. This is derived from your birth date. Unlike astrology, in numerology, your personal year does not stay the same from year to year – one of us has to do some math. Fortunately, that’s my job, so I’ve done the math for you. Find your birthday to see what this year holds for you.

o What you do this year is likely to determine what you will be doing for the next nine years, so think before you act. This is not a time to be indecisive: you need to have courage and take the bull by the horns, so to speak. Make plans and set both short and long term goals. Expect change and expect to change. If you haven’t done so already, you need to let go of anything holding you back. This does not mean that you should sever relationships, but do not let another’s expectations of you prevent you from doing something you really want to do. You will have new opportunities. Seize the day.
· January 9, 18, 27; February 8, 17, 26; March 7, 16, 25; April 6, 15, 24; May 5, 14, 23; June 4, 13, 22; July 3, 12, 21, 30; August 2, 11, 20, 29; September 1, 10, 19, 28; October 9, 18, 27; November 8, 17, 26; December 7, 16, 25:
o You will need patience, tact, diplomacy, and the ability to cooperate with others this year. You are likely to receive some of the help you need to reach some of your goals, but you cannot force the issue. You can let it be known what kind of help you need, but then you need to have patience and wait for others to offer their assistance. Delays will occur. Avoid pushing the issue. You need to have faith that your plans will come to fruition when the time is right.
· January 1, 10, 19, 28; February 9, 18, 27; March 8, 17, 26; April 7, 16, 25; May 6, 15, 24; June 5, 14, 23; July 4, 13, 22, 31; August 3, 12, 21, 30; September 2, 11, 20, 29; October 1, 10, 19, 28; November 9, 18, 27; December 8, 17, 26:
o This is a great year to focus on improving yourself. You are likely to be more creative, use more imagination, and receive more inspiration this year than is normal for you. Whenever you have an idea that you want to follow through on, you should note it so that you remember to follow through. Both your finances and your relationships are likely to be in good shape this year, as long as you treat others with friendship and respect. Use common sense, or you will wonder what happened. This is a great year for taking your dream vacation. Do make the effort to follow your dreams, and you will get the most out of the year. Do not, however, expect immediate results. The results of this year’s efforts will come late this year and throughout next year.
· January 2, 11, 20, 29; February 1, 10, 19, 28; March 9, 18, 27; April 8, 17, 26; May 7, 16, 25; June 6, 15, 24; July 5, 14, 23; August 4, 13, 22, 31; September 3, 12, 21, 30; October 2, 11, 20, 29; November 1, 10, 19, 28; December 9, 18, 27:
o This year is full of practicality and hard work. Now is the time to push yourself forward and really work to accomplish your goals. You will need to stay organized and keep applying yourself to your tasks, or you will get sidetracked and lose out on some of what the year has to offer. Expect big expenses this year. You are also more prone to illness and injury, so do your best to not lose sight of what you are doing and where you are going. Take breaks as needed to maintain your health. This is also a good year for buying, selling, and trading, and for building or adding to the foundation of your life. A move to a new residence is possible if your current residence does not meet your needs. Use economy, thrift, care, and efficiency when meeting your goals in order to come out ahead at the end of the year.
· January 3, 12, 21, 30; February 2, 11, 20, 29; March 1, 10, 19, 28; April 9, 18, 27; May 8, 17, 26; June 7, 16, 25; July 6, 15, 24; August 5, 14, 23; September 4, 13, 22; October 3, 12, 21, 30; November 2, 11, 20, 29; December 1, 10, 19, 28:
o This will be a year of change, and therefore, uncertainty, which is likely to make you feel unsettled. Do not expect to settle into a routine, for the moment you do, something is likely to happen to make you break that routine. Keep an open mind, for this year you will find yourself having to change plans to reach your long-term goals, and perhaps even changing the goals themselves. Plan ahead, but expect to make adjustments. You are also likely to feel more restless and impatient than usual, but do not allow those feeling to force you into being hasty, or you will waste resources. You will probably have to break up or change old relationships and routines. Think things through, and make certain the changes you make benefit others involved as well as yourself. You do not want to leave others feeling poorly towards you. This is a time for travel and freedom, and thus is a year in which you may do what you want, within reason. Keep things fresh this year.
· January 4, 13, 22, 31; February 3, 12, 21; March 2, 11, 20, 29; April 1, 10, 19, 28; May 9, 18, 27; June 8, 17, 26; July 7, 16, 25; August 6, 15, 24; September 5, 14, 23; October 4, 13, 22, 31; November 3, 12, 21, 30; December 2, 11, 20, 29:
o This year indicates responsibility and duty towards those you love. Be honest, charitable, and unselfish, and do not allow negative feelings to persist. Express love and sympathy. You will feel a need to get things settled. Your friends and family will have plenty of good advice for you, so talk things over and listen to them. Consider others’ feelings and needs as well as your own when making decisions, and allow yourself to make adjustments for them. You will have a big responsibility thrust upon you this year, whether it is the care of a family member or friend, a big project at work, or some form of health issue. For best results, you should feel privileged to have such a big responsibility, rather than feeling that it is a burden. Give more than you expect to receive. Others may try to impose on you or take advantage of your generosity. Use good judgment in those cases. It is okay to say no if they do not truly need your help. This is a good year for love and romance, and for settling down.
· January 5, 14, 23; February 4, 13, 22; March 3, 12, 21, 30; April 2, 11, 20, 29; May 1, 10, 19, 28; June 9, 18, 27; July 8, 17, 26; August 7, 16, 25; September 6, 15, 24; October 5, 14, 23; November 4, 13, 22; December 3, 12, 21, 30:
o This will be an intellectual year for you. You will want to dig deeper and know more. You will also be more involved in quiet pursuits than usual, unless that is the usual for you. You will want to spend more time alone and to rest more, and it will be necessary for your physical, emotional, and mental health. This is a time for analysis and thinking things through. Many of your decisions will be about yourself and where you want to be in life – things you can start working on in the next few years. Others will find it more difficult to understand you this year, and you will find it harder to understand them. Be fair, understanding, and reasonable, and don’t interfere in their lives. You are likely to feel out of the loop, and that is okay. Do not force things or work too hard. This is your year to be quietly alone.
· January 6, 15, 24; February 5, 14, 23; March 4, 13, 22, 31; April 3, 12, 21, 30; May 2, 11, 20, 29; June 1, 10, 19, 28; July 9, 18, 27; August 8, 17, 26; September 7, 16, 25; October 6, 15, 24; November 5, 14, 23; December 4, 13, 22, 31:
o This year, you have ambitions and you want more money. You need to be businesslike, efficient, and practical. You will have to be a bit judgmental this year, so take the time to make certain that your judgments are good ones. Now is the time to tie up loose ends, and when you are out of loose ends to tie, set goals and work towards them. You will probably need the help of others to keep track of all of this year’s details. Err on the side of underestimating things. You will have to do plenty of work, but don’t push yourself, or you are liable to become ill. Be cooperative and helpful, but not dominant. A businesslike or professional attitude is best. As this is a time for money matters, a change in residence is possible. You will be focusing on the material things of life, either bringing them into your life or working yourself free of them.
· January 7, 16, 25; February 6, 15, 24; March 5, 14, 23; April 4, 13, 22; May 3, 12, 21, 30; June 2, 11, 20, 29; July 1, 10, 19, 28; August 9, 18, 27; September 8, 17, 26; October 7, 16, 25; November 6, 15, 24; December 5, 14, 23:
o This year, more than any other, requires tolerance, compassion, and forgiveness on your part. You will complete a number of your long-term goals this year, and while there will be joy in the successful completion, there is also likely to be sadness. People who no longer have a reason to be in your life will pass out of it, one way or another. New opportunities and interests will open up to take the place of the ones that have finished, though you will not be able to start many of them until next year. Do not try to hold on to anything that wants to get away, for this is a time of letting go. This is also a time for giving of yourself. Spending time doing humanitarian work is a good idea. You are likely to find yourself embroiled in others’ situations, particularly love affairs. Think the situation through and give your best advice.
