Isis and Osiris

 ISIS (42) and OSIRIS (1923)


ISIS is the personification of the Divine Feminine "Shakti" or Power that seeks to Unite with Her Infinite God-Source by completing the Divine "Union". The entire Kundalini Yoga Process is nothing but Shakti at the base of the Spine uniting completely with the Divine "Shiva" center in the Crown Chakra.
The Egyptian Myths speak of a patient Isis searching for the missing parts of her beloved Osiris. The Myth is a very good allegory to the Fall of Man. Osiris is tricked by jealous brother Set, cut into 13 pieces and scattered. This is akin to the Individual Soul compartmentalized into 13 personalities for the sake of physical Human Experience, and the temptation or trickery may have been another Species.
So, ISIS, the Twin Soul of Osiris collects all 13 pieces to make Osiris whole again for Union. Thus, she is the inspirer of Kundalini for all 13 Soul Personalities of every Higher Self. She initiates us into the knowledge of Karma, without balancing which we cannot raise our Kundalini.
ISIS is the ultimate energy of Loyalty. When the penis of OSIRIS is missing, she asks Thoth to make one of gold and re-animate Osiris. This is a very powerful allegory. The awakened Osiris is above base desires, and his enlightened form needs sexual experience beyond ordinary compulsions of lust/survival procreation. The purpose of sexual union is now to create demi-gods, and thus Horus is produced.
ISIS is thus the initiator of certain hormonal transformations in Men, something occurs to our cellular structure when we attain knowledge of Isis and from Isis. It is possible that we can produce sperm cells that have a mono-atom of gold. [Gold is produced in the Human Body through Biological Transmutation. Spiritual people may be metabolizing more gold and hence activating more powerful electrical connections to the Spiritual World]
Asteroid ISIS thus tells you how you will attain Spiritual Kundalini based Transformation with love and loyalty for God, by letting go of karmic entrapments and by alchemically producing more internal gold. (iQ, 2012)
---------------- ------------------------ ------------------ ----------------------
Asteroid ISIS has several layers of meaning, depending on the karmic experiences of the person. Most of the interpretations will work only after a certain amount of spiritual awareness is inculcated. Dormant and passive people will rarely experience the effects of the occult theme asteroids in their chart [very strong transits can sometimes trigger enough spiritual awareness to start sensing the effect of occult theme asteroids].
Those who are Souls with repeated incarnations since the time of Ancient Egypt or even prior to that, for them ISIS is a proof of their past life karmic debts in Ancient Egypt that deal with Royalty, Mystery Schools and Hermetic Wisdom ; for ISIS is said to be the Goddess responsible for Initiation into Mysteries.
Those who have more incarnations since the Renaissance or towards the Modern Age, ISIS represent their own awakening to the Spiritual via the “Divine Feminine”: Their discovery of Art Form, Symbolism and expression of how they thirst for God. Here, there is a direct correlation to the Vedic Esoteric Concept of “Kundalini” where Shakti is the Divine Feminine Force latent in Humanity which when thirsting for the Eternal God Soul, rises up to meet the “Shiva” Center [OSIRIS in Ancient Egyptian Myth] near the Pituitary Gland. This is said to activate the Crown Chakra [after first activating the Pineal Gland].
Those who are Souls from ATLANTIS, for them ISIS represents the compassion that helped in the re-construction and rehabilitation of survivors across the Continents after the destruction of Atlantis. Here, ISIS could even be a Goddess Level Entity from the Sirius Star System.
Irrespective of incarnation history or geography, for all Human Beings, Asteroid Isis can be considered as the representation of the best of our “Right Brain” Traits: Compassion, Intuition, Knowing by Knowing and ultimately Gnosis/Self Realization.
The most popular Myth of ISIS is her poignant and dedicated search for the missing pieces of her Twin Flame: OSIRIS. 13 pieces are found, and the 14th piece is made of Gold, after which Master Thoth reawakens OSIRIS, and they reunite. A powerful child is born to them, Horus, who destroys Set [the jealous brother of Osiris who conspired to dismember Osiris].
This Myth is all about Reintegration of our Highest Self by settling the debts of parallel incarnations, and awakening using “Gold” into our Divine Immortal Form. Gold = God + L or God + Love, the Love being the unconditional love from our Twin Flame without which Immortality is impossible. ISIS in our charts can thus tell us how we receive unconditional love from our Twin Flame, wherever she or he may be, so that we become whole again and release past life debts to ensure we escape the cycles of birth/death. (iQ, 2013 -14)
-------------------- ----------------------- ----------------------- ---------------------
OSIRIS is one of the most important Asteroids by theme. According to my understanding, it helps us know how we grasp the Divine Masculine traits within us. Where did we get scattered ? [Osiris Myth of 14 Pieces]
How do we rejuvenate? Who will be our Thoth/Master/Guide/Guru? [Asteroid Hermes may help]

How do we impregnate Isis with a Golden Phallus? [Meaning: How do we seed our Higher Reality after enlightenment]. (iQ, 2011)
------------------ --------------------- ----------------------- --------------------
ISIS conjunct OSIRIS
ISIS represents our divine feminine archetype energies of wisdom and OSIRIS the divine masculine wisdom. Their conjunction indicates a very evolved soul in the matters of masculinity-femininity balance.
(iQ, 2007)

A linkage of ISIS and OSIRIS can indicate a greater likelihood that you have a Twin Flame, and a Reunion might be possible. (IndigoDirae, May 2014)
A conjunction of Soul Mate Pair Asteroids in the Natal Chart is like a 99% guarantee of at least one loving Soulmate Relationship in this incarnation, with a high chance of it being a Twin Flame relationship. Thus, any of Isis conjunct Osiris, Eros conjunct Psyche and Siva conj Parvati aspects are very positive for an individual. (iQ)

One of the most important aspects for ISIS is SUN conjunct ISIS. An example:
ISIS conjunct SUN at 11.3 Pisces:
Sabian: " In The Sanctuary Of An Occult Brotherhood, Newly Initiated Members Are Being Examined And Their Character Tested”
Interpretation: You have been an initiate of a Mystery School in more than one lifetime. You are very strongly connected to the Schools that later instituted Freemasonry.

Depending on other Asteroids [Example: Asteroid Giza or Osiris or Horus or Ptah or Sekhmet conjunct/trine/square/opposition Saturn or South Node], you could have had one or more lifetimes in Ancient Egypt or in a family that was affectionate towards Ancient Egyptian Research.
Your Spiritual Energy Levels must be very high to have such an exact conjunction, and it would be necessary for you to know about Hermetic Concepts such as taught in "Kybalion". There is also a chance that you have existed as a Higher Dimensional Being in Sirius [This may seem bizarre, but there are several ancient texts which speak of Advanced Civilizations in other Star Systems].
ISIS conjunct SUN or MOON in 5 Aquarius.
Sabian: “A Masked Figure Performs Ritualistic Acts In A Mystery Play” - Much of the first interpretation will be common.
In addition, the Sabian Symbol is highly ritualistic, you could have been used in Ancient Egyptian inspired rituals without your knowledge and could also have participated willingly. Asteroid ISIS works both ways, occult and open.

ISIS conjunct SUN: Your Core Personality is connected to an Ancient Egyptian Past Lifetime [or a past lifetime in a culture that was obsessed with Ancient Egyptian Artefacts and Occult Knowledge like Freemasonry]. You are destined to learn Occult Concepts like those explained in the Kybalion. You will also have a stronger yearning for your Twin Flame than is normal with other people. (iQ, 2013)
ISIS conjunct SUN bestows ladies with seductive charm and soulful looks.


ISIS conjunct ASC: a clue to an Egyptian Past Life.
ISIS trine ASC: Fated to know about Occult Wisdom, with ease and harmony.

OSIRIS or HORUS conjunct ASC produces heroic individuals ready to sacrifice for others.


OSIRIS conjunct MOON shows your Higher Level comprehension of the Divine Masculine is linked to the mastery of personal emotions and Subconscious Mind.
This conjunction also indicates your Maternal Ancestral Bloodlines have an important Ancient Egyptian connection. (iQ, 2011)

Keywords for ISIS and OSIRIS in the 12 Signs of the Zodiac
ISIS describes a higher level personality in a woman. The same aspect in a Man’s chart describes these traits that he will appreciate in a woman after he improves in his Spiritual Level. Likewise, OSIRIS describes a higher level personality in a man, and a woman will appreciate such traits in a man once she improves her Spiritual Level.

The Divine Feminine characteristics are felt impulsively and quickly. The increase in spiritual wisdom leads to increased leadership traits and a fiery streak is added to the personality. This same fiery nature will be demonstrated to one who is considered to be the true love or Soul Mate. There will be an attraction towards chasing the opposite sex to find love [after one’s spiritual awareness is triggered].

Tendency to be a hero who loves the idealism of a Self Sacrificing General, one leading a battle against wickedness even if the wicked be from within one’s own kingdom. Chances of being injured are high when attempting heroic feats. In an Ancient Egyptian Past Lifetime, the odds are high for leading an army in battle.

The Divine Feminine characteristics are felt through steadfast patience and when being opinionated in the quest for Divine Enlightenment. Beauty will be felt stronger within. Sensuousness will increase with heightened awareness during Spiritual Practices.

The Divine Feminine characteristics are felt through Motherhood and nurturing.

The Divine Masculine characteristics after Transformation are manifested by being a superb Father to one’s biological and adopted children.

This placement is associated with nearness to Royalty and the Pharaohs of Ancient Egypt. In the present, after Transformation one will become more joyful and more influential through charisma plus through ones hobbies. One would immerse himself or herself into the enjoyment of higher pleasures of life, and will never feel shy about this.

The main characteristics of this placement is that after Self Transformation one’s critical reasoning faculty improves tremendously and one starts paying a lot more close attention to the details than before. The women will feel more attractive when they are more cerebral and the men will feel more heroic when they calculate faster or analyze more information quickly.

In Ancient Egyptian Lifetimes, very likely to be associated with the Fine Arts or decorators for the Royalty. Could have been a High Priestess as well.

Could have been powerful politicians, orators or sculptors in in the Ancient Egyptian Lifetime. In the present, after Transformation one would find oneself drawn to the Fine Arts or even the study of languages. One would suddenly feel more gifted in the fine arts. There will be a sudden interest in feminine beauty and an appreciation of the Divine Feminine than ever before.

In Ancient Egyptian Lifetimes, very likely to be associated with Sacred Sex as Concubines for the Royalty or Priests.

Chances also exist for being secret assassins. In the present, this placement is encouraging of seeking advanced sexual practices, sex for enlightenment than just animal lust and very strong sexual attraction for the sake of the Higher Mind.or for the Evolutionary Level than external appearance.

The strongest Occult Connection. Could have been members of Secret Orders and Cults in Ancient Egypt. Could have known the Secrets of The Pyramids, The Magical Books, the true meaning of Hieroglyphics and about the Soul/Higher Self etc. In the present life after Transformation, this placement encourages very deep thinking about Occult Symbols, about the Soul, about Reincarnation and so on.

ISIS sextile KAALI exact - 2 superb Divine Feminine Archetypes in harmony. This means the "Nadis" like Ida, Pingala, Sushumna and all smaller etheric nerves have good odds of managing energy flow.
ISIS conjunct PANACEA in Scorpio 12th - Deep contemplation of the feminine aspects of intelligence will always be a source of healing.
You are fortunate to have a beautiful inner connection to the Divine Feminine side of God.

ISIS square SPHINX: You hold some inner secrets on the Divine Feminine. Also, yet another pointer to an 'ancient egyptian mystery school student' lifeline.
A very significant aspect confirming your past life links to Ancient Egypt. Your soul is well versed in the mysteries of death and reincarnation and you have a need to master the knowledge of the Divine Masculine traits, maybe by finding a very highly realized soul mate in life.


ISIS conjunct/trine VENUS:
Such a person can have dazzling appeal, many will fall in love with the person. A lady may find fame because of her beauty with this aspect. She will love to find her Soul Mate and will be true to him even if she is a celebrity. Such a person will be able to affect the “Kundalini Energy” of her admirers through her appearance or even presence.

ISIS conjunct MARS or EROS:
Here sexual energy gets enhanced, especially the desire for sexual union with one’s Soul Mate or even better, with one’s Twin Flame. Some people with this aspect act as initiators of sexual experience to many in the art of “Sacred Sex”. [Note: This trait is more when Asteroid Vesta is involved].

ISIS conjunct MERCURY conjunct IC
Indicates a need to contemplate on "Divine Feminine", possibly a need to study Hermeticism/works of Thoth for your intellectual growth. A strong capability exists for understanding the structure of the Human Soul, especially from the viewpoint of Ancient Egyptian thinkers.

Whenever Saturn is concerned, it is a past life lesson that was not learned adequately, or a past life “sin” for which sufficient remedial action was not taken.

When the aspect angle is square or opposition, the lesson is intense as the negative actions or negative consequences are too many. The interpretation of Saturn in a Sign and House has already been explained, so first look at that, then combine the meaning of Isis. This combination is of a harsh lesson or negative experience fated in this life because of either negative actions in an Ancient Egyptian Lifetime, misuse of Occult Knowledge from an Isis based Mystery School or even disrespect of one’s “Divine Feminine” traits leading to lessons of suffering as a woman [if a woman] of from women if you are a male with this aspect.
Supposing the aspect were a conjunction, then the person has been heavily involved in all that Isis represents.
Pleasant aspects like trine and sextile indicate an ease of understanding the concept represented by Isis. An additional positive interpretation of Isis trine Saturn is being fated to meet, romance or marry a loving Soul Mate, even if there are afflictions to the 7th House/7th House Lord.

ISIS conjunct URANUS exact in 8th House: you intuitively know about Kundalini, DIvine-Feminine Concepts for a New Age etc. A strong ISIS is also a clue for a Sirian past lifeline. (iQ, 2010)

Q. Is a solitary connection enough to raise a pleasant relationship to something very special would you say?
A. Only if the connection is to a planet or to Asteroid OSIRIS in the other chart.

Q. Do you prefer to see a female asteroid ISIS aspecting a male OSIRIS? Or a male ISIS aspecting a female OSIRIS in synastry?
A. Both will work because they represent some of the Highest Positive Principles of Manifested Divinity

Q. Can the connection indicate something platonic or is it always about loving union?
A. Both can happen but to convert a deep Platonic "Mental" Union into a passionate union, we do need some help from MARS or PlUTO in the charts (iQ, 2012)

Q. OSIRIS is the man and ISIS is the woman (me). If it matters its 22-24 degrees of Taurus and my ISIS is in the 3rd house and his OSIRIS is in the 11th
A. A very powerful Soul Mate Pair conjunction. Very strong likelihood of a past lifetime affair which was deep, as if you sought him for a long time. It is a strong encouragement to consider the relationship [provided there aren't too many severe planetary afflictions]. (iQ, 2013)

Q- Double whammy conjunction (exact) of ISIS and KARMA.
A -Very powerful. This should have brought forth past life memories or even Genetic Memories of the Old Kingdom in Ancient Egypt. Spiritually, it denotes the fated "trigger" for you to find the Isis/Kundalini Shakti within, to enable you to integrate your life experiences. You were to have received some sort of automatic Alchemical Initiation. (iQ, 2012)

Q- My OSIRIS conjunct his NN?
A - Your Osiris represents your ideal spiritual husband apart from your thoughts on death/rebirth. So conjuct his NN, it means he is destined to be someone who fulfills the role of divine husband or whose path leads you to knowledge about death and rebirth.

ISIS conjunct AMOR
Love will connect the couple more to divine consciousness.

Him/Her (exact cnj only)
Isis/Pluto (cnj Her DC)

His ISIS conj her OSIRIS is a divinely blessed soulmate indication IF and ONLY IF both have evolved thier consciousness to a certain level. This aspect is useless if the guy's idea of genuine happiness in life is free beer while watching Superbowl in a 100 Inch LED Screen.
OSIRIS conjunct PLUTO becomes transformational, he will be instrumental in her knowing how her best mate should be.
OSIRIS conjunct MERCURY - indicates intellectual rapport
His OSIRIS conjunct her VESTA and SN - this is a dedication from her side to his "Divine Masculine" traits like protection, compassion and generous support.
ISIS conjunct PLUTO: Very similar to ISIS-OSIRIS but ISIS/PLUTO conjunction will have excellent sex. (iQ, 2010)
My ISIS square his VALENTINE (0)/His ISIS opposes my VALENTINE (4)- You both scr*wed up an excellent love relationship in the ancient egyptian lifeline.
ATLANTIS on his ISIS-OSIRIS MIDPOINT - The best explanation I am having is that the karmic debts relating to an Atlantis past lifetime for you both again manifested in an Ancient Egyptian lifetime relationship. There is more of a Priestess nature than just Royal for you, considering 28 Virgo is the Sun's degree.


OSIRIS conjunct SUN: This is positive in terms of valuing each other as a Soul Mate and being loyal. A conjunction or trine from ISIS would have further strengthened this.
PSYCHE sextile ISIS: There is psychological compatibility for the special or sophisticated knowledge held by one another.

ISIS and OSIRIS conjunct VENUS,MARS, DEJANIRA and CHILD (3rd house). They all trine NESSUS (11th house).
The more you learn about integrating the Divine Feminine (Isis) with Divine Masculine (Osiris) within your own Soul, especially by balancing both Brain Hemispheres, the more you will be able to eliminate the negative karma of being abusive to others in past lifetimes. Plus you will protect yourself from abuse in the present through Spiritual Understanding of the Polarities of Divine Energy. When it comes to Venus and Mars, more mundane aspects of Divine Feminine and Masculine are at play. SO the more you understand Isis and Osiris, the more abundance and health improvement will be seen. Lust will make way for love, aggression/anger of Mars will make way for confident striving and so on.

ISIS / OSIRIS and the fixed stars SIRIUS/ORION
In Linda's "Star Signs" she mentioned two fixed stars labelled by Astronomers as Isis and Osiris forming an aspect after thousands of years [Correct me if I am wrong].
This was a Sign to her about our generation awakening more and more to the concept of Soul Mates and Twin Flame.

Thus, if we connect Sirius and Orion to the Twin Flame Theme of Isis and Osiris, we have the following:
1. Sirius is the brightest Star, the "Light" of a Star in the dark night. Light = Seeking = Isis seeking for the missing parts of Osiris.

2. Orion as a Constellation has 7 major Stars and 2 minor Stars. Though this does not tie in with 13 pieces of Osiris, the 9 Stars of Orion plus Sirius = 10, the Numerological Number of Isis and Osiris.
3. Orion and Osiris are both heroes in Myth.
Ancient Egyptians connected the two. It is possible that the Consciousness of Orion manifested as Osiris.

4. If Isis and Osiris together are the Cosmic Soul, then we have a 12 Zodiac Connection as well. Sirius has two neighbors called Sirius B and Sirius C. 9 of Orion plus 3 = 12.
Thus, Sirius and Orion are one of the symbols of how the Zodiac affects the Undivided Soul.

5. The Pyramids of Giza maps to Orion, but Sirius is said to Symbolize Isis. The Dogon Tribe connected Sirius as the Axis of the Universe, and said that all "Matter" emanates from Sirius. This is a strong tie in to the Vedic Theory of all "Maya" or Illusory Matter produced from "Adi Parasakthi" or First Cause Goddess, which is what Ancient Egyoptians considered Isis. [Shiva being Osiris].
Thus, any geometric interrlay between Sirius and Orion in the sky is a symbol of Cosmological Tantra of Osiris-Isis or Shiva-Shakti. That is what I know so far. (iQ, 2014)

Understanding Numerology: The Personality and Maturity Numbers

The Personality Number
The best way to think about the Personality Number is to equate it with first impressions because it allows you to see yourself as others see you.
The Personality Number is calculated using the consonants of a person's birth name. Similar to the Soul Number, the letter "Y" is only considered to be a consonant when it is silent. Good examples are in the first names Ray, Maya and Tanya.
By this point, you should have a good idea of how to calculate the numbers, so we won't go through any examples here. Just remember that when you do calculate the Personality Number, you should use the person's first and last names as they appear on their birth certificate.
What the Numbers Mean
Personality Number 1 - People with this Personality Number are dynamic, efficient, controlled and capable. Personality Number 1s are often characterized as pioneers and have their own distinct way of doing things. Because of this, care needs to be taken to ensure actions are not misinterpreted as being overly aggressive or intimidating.
Personality Number 2 - People with this personality Number are characterized as being friendly and unpretentious and can easily draw others to them with their warm and inviting presence. Patience and understanding are also key characteristics. Personality Number 2s are particularly concerned with their personal appearance and take the time needed to dress and groom well.
Personality Number 3 - People with this Personality Number are usually quite attractive and have a tremendous appreciation for finer things such as clothing and jewelry. Often characterized as being uplifting, inspiring and charming, Personality Number 3s are usually fun people to spend time with. Because of this, however, deep and lasting relationships typically require a little more work.
Personality Number 4 - Reliability and consistency describe people with this Personality Number. These are the people that others trust implicitly and with whom they feel most secure. Always careful spenders, people with this Personality Number are concerned with the security of their future, they are deeply patriotic and can usually be found filling some important role within their community.
Personality Number 5 - People with this Personality Number are stimulating and engaging and have a great deal of nervous energy. They view life as an ongoing adventure and are typically athletic. On the downside, Personality Number 5s are drawn to anything that feeds their senses, including food, alcohol, drugs and sex and often indulge in these to an excess.
Personality Number 6 - People with a Personality Number of 6 are understanding and compassionate and tend to attract people who are in need of comfort. Other characteristics include being artistic, romantic, faithful, protective, and having an excellent sense of color and taste. Because they value peace and harmony, Personality Number 6s will often sacrifice their own needs for the good of others.
Personality Number 7 - Those with a Personality Number of 7 are seen as being mysterious and different, making them difficult to get to know. Highly independent and self-sufficient, Personality Number 7s exude a great deal of confidence, wisdom and even spirituality. Seen by some as being arrogant, care has to be taken to not offend others.
Personality Number 8 - Those with a Personality Number of 8 are seen as strong, powerful and above all, confident. Quality is important to people with this Personality Number and it is often reflected in the way they dress. On the downside, Personality Number 8s can be egocentric and adopt greedy, ruthless behaviors.
Personality Number 9 - Those with this Personality Number are characterized as being elegant, graceful and charismatic. Unfortunately, these qualities can cause some to believe they are better than others. Better suited for working with crowds rather than individuals, Personality Number 9s are often performers. Other characteristics include being sympathetic, compassionate, and benevolent.
Master Personality Number 11 - People with this Personality Number, while extremely sensitive and intuitive, can also be quite shy. Seen by most as gentle and warm, people with this Personality Number are patient and understanding and above all, seek peace and harmony. Other characteristics include a fine sense of beauty and excellent taste in food, clothing and home decor.
Master Personality Number 22 - People with this Personality Number are intelligent, sensitive, and creative. Seen as reliable and dependable, Personality Number 22s value correctness, control and consistency, family life and patriotism. Their goal is often to create or be involved in something that will have lasting importance or significance.
Because it is rare to see Personality Numbers higher than 22, there is not much known about the remaining Master Numbers.
The Maturity Number 
The fifth and final core number in the Numerology Profile is the Maturity Number. This number tells us how the attributes a person cultivated during their lifetime might be used toward the betterment of society. It also indicates the extent to which a person may expect to lead a meaningful, satisfying and happy life as they enter their later years. As a result, the energies associated with this number usually do not appear until one approaches the mid-point of their life which is usually also the time at which most individuals finally begin to truly understand themselves.
The Maturity Number is calculated by combining the energies of the Destiny and Life Path Numbers:
Destiny Number + Life Path Number = Maturity Number.
It's that simple.
Be sure to remember to apply all of the rules that you have learned thus far for handling special situations.
Take a few minutes now to calculate your Maturity Number.
The Meanings of the Maturity Number
So, what does the Maturity Number mean? Let's take a look.
Maturity Number 1 - Those with a Maturity Number of 1 can expect to learn leadership qualities early in their life. As a result, they are usually the ones who most often identify what needs to be done and the developing a plan for making sure it is finished.

In their later years, Personality Number 1s will work hard to ensure they maintain their independence and self-sufficiency.
Maturity Number 2 - Those with a Maturity Number of 2 have a natural ability of attracting people who want to support their efforts. However, in order for a person with this Maturity Number to succeed in relationships, they need to learn how to give as well as take. Inherent abilities in music, painting, writing or dancing should be cultivated early, otherwise regrets may come in later years. Happiness is found by ensuring there is harmony within their life. In their later years, Maturity Number 2s will find themselves in the company of another person, rather than living alone.
Maturity Number 3 - Those with a Maturity Number of 3 have an active imagination and a strong creative spirit and are happiest when these gifts are used frequently.

In their later years, Maturity Number 3s can expect to be permitted to spend time with friends and enjoying creative pursuits.
Maturity Number 4 - Those with a Maturity Number of 4 will learn the importance of hard work and discipline in their early years. They will take these lessons into their later years and attempt to create or contribute something of lasting value to society.

In their later years, the Maturity Number 7 will often be sought out by others for their wisdom and guidance.

In their later years, the Maturity Number 9 will use their gifts in ways to better the world in which they live.
Master Maturity Number 11 - People with this Master Maturity Number are highly self-aware and are usually wise beyond their years. In their later years, Master Maturity Number 11s usually pursue interests in the spiritual, health and nutrition areas.
Master Maturity Number 22 - People with a Master Maturity Number of 22 are those that others count on to make things happen. Natural leaders, people with this Maturity Number are adept at facing challenges.

Master Maturity Number 33 - This Master Maturity Number, which rarely occurs, can expect to benefit from their lifetime of responsible behavior and service to others. When it comes to caring for others, there are no limits to what this person will do. In their later years, the Master Maturity Number 33 will find themselves sought out for their friendship, creativity, sympathetic nature and ability to love. 
Advanced Topics in Numerology
Calculating and analyzing the five Core Numerology Numbers are just a small part of Numerology. Now that you know how to calculate these numbers and what they mean, it is time to put them to work to help predict what the future may have in store for us.
As their names imply, the Pinnacle and Challenge Numbers tell us about our potential for achievement and identify the difficulties we may encounter along the way. We'll begin with the Pinnacle Numbers.
Pinnacle Numbers 
Interested in learning more? Why not take an online class in Numerology?
Remember, the objective of Numerology is to predict major life changes - or pinnacles - in our lives. These big transformations are necessary to prevent the apathy and ambivalence that would almost certainly occur if life were to continue along at a predictable pace.
The Pinnacle Number tells us what to expect in the future. Having this information can help us to fully achieve our goals, hopes and dreams.
Each person has four Pinnacle Numbers:
First Pinnacle - The First Pinnacle typically covers the period from birth through age 27 however in some individuals, this period can last through age 35. It is calculated by adding together your month of birth and date of birth. To find out how long your First Pinnacle period will last, simply subtract your Life Path Number from 36.
Second Pinnacle - The Second Pinnacle is nine years in length and is referred to as a period of blossoming and ripening. This is typically the period in one's life when family obligations are in the forefront of their being. It is calculated by adding together your date of birth and year of birth. To find out how long your Second Pinnacle will last, add nine to your age at the end of your First Pinnacle (as calculated above).
Third Pinnacle - The Third Pinnacle is also nine years in length and typically occurs during one's middle-age years. This period is frequently referred to as a time of manifestation and reward. It is calculated by adding together the First Pinnacle and Second Pinnacle numbers. To find out how long your Third Pinnacle will last, add nine to your age at the end of your Second Pinnacle (as calculated above).
Fourth Pinnacle - The Fourth Pinnacle usually begins at around age 50 and lasts for the duration of one's life. This period is frequently referred to as a time of aging, reflection and wisdom. It is calculated by adding together the month of birth and the year of birth. Your Fourth Pinnacle will last for the duration of your life; there is no calculation involved.
Working with Pinnacle Numbers is a little different than working with the other numbers we've discussed so far. One of the key differences is that while all double-digit numbers are reduced, Master Numbers are not. This is because the appearance of a Master Number indicates that it is time for the individual to "step up to the plate" and show their true abilities.
By now, you should have had enough practice calculating numbers, so we will not provide an example here. However, before continuing, take a few minutes to calculate your four Pinnacle Numbers.
What the Pinnacle Numbers Mean
Pinnacle Number 1 - This number is influenced by a driving need for independence, the desire to use original ideas, the ability to lead and direct others, and being recognized for one's achievements.
Pinnacle Number 2 - This number is influenced by the forces of friendliness, cooperation, harmony and attention to detail. It is during this Pinnacle Number that sensitivity is usually at its peak.

Pinnacle Number 4 - This number is influenced by a practical, realistic approach to life and is characterized by a high level of order and organization.

Pinnacle Number 7 - This number is influenced by learning, investigating and gaining skills and is generally characterized as a time of transition.
Pinnacle Number 8 - This number is influenced by business and commercial activity, status, success and recognition. Positive changes in one's financial status often occur when this number is present.

Master Number 33/6 Pinnacle - This number occurs only rarely and usually occurs after some sort of major change in consciousness has happened.
Challenge Numbers
We all know that life isn't without its challenges. In Numerology, the Challenge Numbers help us to find a way to maintain our equilibrium even when the going gets tough.
It is important to realize that Challenge Numbers do not exist to warn us about the things we need to overcome in our lifetime; rather, they help us to see who or what we must become in order to be successful.
There are four Challenge Numbers which occur during the same periods as the Pinnacle Numbers. The Challenge Numbers are calculated as follows:
First Challenge Number - The month of birth is subtracted from the day of birth
Second Challenge Number - The day of birth is subtracted from the year of birth
Third Challenge Number - The First Challenge Number is subtracted from the Second Challenge Number.
Fourth Challenge Number - The month of birth is subtracted from the year of birth
Up until this point, we have always added two (or more) numbers together to obtain our numbers. Since calculating the Challenge Number requires us to subtract, there exists the possibility that we will end up with a negative number. If this occurs, simply ignore the negative sign and convert the number to a positive. Thus, -3 becomes 3, -5 becomes 5 and so on.
There also exists the possibility that one of the Challenge Numbers can be zero. This is perfectly fine; many Numerology experts believe that zero is indicative of an "old soul" - someone who have returned through many lifetimes and bring with them the wisdom and spiritual knowledge of someone who has experienced life. It is also believed that a Challenge Number zero leaves its owner open to the challenges of all the other numbers.
Similarly, there is no Challenge Number 9 because 9 is the highest number that can appear anywhere in a birth date (remember, the numbers for October, November and December are reduced to single digits) and all other numbers are subtracted from it. For the same reason, there are no Master Challenge Numbers.
Challenge Number 1 - The challenge of this number is to avoid being dominated without being disagreeable. Those with this number often need to work hard to keep their egos in check and should rely on their wit and intelligence to get them through the rough spots.
Challenge Number 2 - The challenge of this number is to be assertive in the decision making process and refrain from taking things too personally. While there will be the tendency to shy away from authority and responsibility, these challenges must be faced head-on.
Challenge Number 3 - The challenge of this number is to remember to cultivate friends and be sociable while maintaining involvement with activities that include writing, acting or speaking. Fear of criticism is always present which often manifests itself in an air of shyness.
Challenge Number 4 - The challenge of this number is to be able to complete tasks efficiently, learn patience, understanding and the practical, common sense way of dealing with the mundane responsibilities of life.
Challenge Number 5 - The challenge of this number is to overcome the desire and demand for freedom at any price. It is important to refrain from impulsive acts and attempt to maintain some sort of stability. Care should also be taken to ensure that any desire for change that may be present isn't actually a desire to escape responsibility.
Challenge Number 6 - The challenge of this number is to be able to compromise one's high standards without appearing as authoritarian, intolerant, and self-righteous. It is important to avoid creating friction in relationships while attempting to achieve balance in situations.
Challenge Number 7 - The challenge of this number is the tendency to dwell on one's limitations. This number is characterized by a discomfort with one's own inner feelings and a belief that one's situation cannot be improved.
Challenge Number 8 - The challenge of this number is a belief that happiness comes only from material wealth. There is an enormous focus on money, status and power which must be balanced with other life matters.


Maturity Number

This is how you get your Maturity Number: take your Destiny Number, add it to your Life Path Number, and reduce it to one digit.

The 1 Maturity Number
If the person you are interested in is a 1 Maturity Number: A 1 Maturity Number consists of people who, as they have gotten older, feel the need to make a mark on the world that is uniquely their own. So if you are married to someone who is a 1 Maturity Number, and right now they seem not as disciplined as you’d like, just know that this will change as they get older. They can’t escape their Maturity Number. That 1 Vibration is going to show up, and it’s going to help them make a difference in the latter part of their life. The 1 Maturity Number will become more passionate, more excited, and more determined to do something with their life. If they have other 1 Vibrations in their Numerology Blueprint, maybe a 1 Life Path, then you may have already seen some of this in their behavior, but as they mature this will intensify. So, that can be very good news for you. On the down side, their ambitions can make them appear overbearing. Encourage them to think before they speak to people, as it really isn’t their intention to be offensive.

The 2 Maturity Number
If the person you are interested in is a 2 Maturity Number: The 2 Maturity Number will be somebody who, if he or she has not already done so, will now find love. Perhaps earlier on they couldn’t meet the right person, but as they get older, they come into a loving, healing relationship. It also means that the gift of intuition, that gut instinct of knowing what is true, will become much stronger. Whatever those hard lessons were in the 2 Maturity Number’s life, as they get older, they are just going to have a natural sense of what is the right thing to do. I think the 2 Maturity Number is a huge blessing, and ultimately, there will be more harmony in the life of this person. So if you are in love with someone with that Maturity Number, know that is where they are headed. You may not see this in your loved one right now, maybe they seem frustrated and angry, but all of that will calm down as they get older.

The 3 Maturity Number
If the person you are interested in is a 3 Maturity Number: The 3 Maturity Number is a good Vibration, because it is about lightening up; it is about getting in touch with that inner child, having a lot more fun, and becoming more social. They have more time to spend listening to good music, going to nice parties, and getting to know people. Let’s say that their Life Path Number is a 4 or an 8, and that they have had some negative intensity in the earlier part of life. With this 3 Vibration, they are bound to get to a happier place. The 3 Maturity Number will make more friends as they get older. For someone who is in love with the 3 Maturity Number, if this person is too uptight right now, just know that they will loosen up. They may also get in touch with their creative side, writing their memoirs or joining their church choir to sing their heart out. The 3 Vibration finds ways to express itself, as this Maturity Number comes into play.

The 4 Maturity Number
If the person you are interested in is a 4 Maturity Number: The 4 Maturity Number does invite someone with whom you can share your life. If their Life Path is a 1, 5, or 7 -- high energy Vibrations -- the 4 can calm that down. As they get older and come into their own, they just get more practical about knowing what they want. When they have an idea, they will follow through with it, instead of feeling as though they are always out of time. It is really a remarkable Vibration for establishing that nest egg for the future. The 4 Maturity Number has to guard against becoming too narrowminded or opinionated. They may give people a hard time for what they believe, especially if it is not in alignment with what the 4 believes.

The 5 Maturity Number
If the person you are interested in is a 5 Maturity Number: A 5 Maturity Number means “fasten your seatbelts.” As they get older, life will become more exciting. They will realize that they are free to do things they never had time to do before. I think of those mothers and fathers who raised their children and who were so responsible: it is finally their time to play. The 5 Maturity Number will have time to experience the world. They will try foods they have never eaten before, change their hairdos, and look at life with childlike wonder. You’ll hear them exclaiming, “Wow, I am so glad I did all this before my life was over.” The 5 must be careful not to overwhelm themselves with too many ideas. They could then be tempted to just throw up their arms and say, “The heck with it!” They should pick one thing, focus on it, and go for it. Then focus on one more, and so on. As they grow older, their life becomes an ever more exciting endeavor. The 5 Maturity Number is all about living life to the fullest.

The 6 Maturity Number
If the person you are interested in is a 6 Maturity Number: This Number encourages these people in their later years to have a deeper connection with their friends, family, and even their community. They feel this nurturing need to make sure that others are taken care of, not just themselves. Financially, they will create a personal nest egg and will also be willing to give to charities and anything else they feel will make a difference in our world. Maybe they were just too busy in their earlier years to form close relationships and find they have time now. By the time their life is over, there will be many people who love and value them. This is especially true if they didn’t have 6s in the rest of their Chart, and a 6 showed up in their Maturity Number. They will find the 6 Maturity Number to be a real blessing in later years.

The 7 Maturity Number
If the person you are interested in is a 7 Maturity Number: As these folks get older, they find themselves contemplating the big questions in life, and they will do whatever they can to get the answers they seek. If the Maturity Number is the only 7 in their chart, it’s all about finding their spiritual base. With the 7 Maturity Number, they will be asking, "Why do I exist?” Now, if they already have a 7 Vibration or two in those six Numbers that make up their Numerology Blueprint, they have to be careful not to become complete hermits, ditch their loved ones, and simply focus on the need to seek answers to all of those unanswered questions. The 7 Maturity Number will encourage them to trust their intuition. They have a natural psychic ability to discern what is true and what isn’t. They will not waste time putting up with someone who is not sincere. They have no time for it, and just want a partner who knows what he or she is talking about. If you love someone with the 7 Maturity Number and it’s not a Natural Match to yours, just know that solitude is a part of them. If you cannot have long periods of silence with your partner, you have to keep in mind how that will affect the long-term part of your relationship.

The 8 Maturity Number
If the person you are interested in is an 8 Maturity Number: This time of life is about establishing financial success once and for all. They will come into that feeling of, “I’m alright, and I’m handled.” One lesson for the 8 Maturity Number is to learn to disconnect with the money, and not to get caught up in how much more money they can make. It is about embracing the fact that they have enough for themselves and enough to help other people as well. Their homes and their surroundings will matter to them. After working so hard to accomplish their financial goals, they can now relax and enjoy the freedom it provides. If they do this, they are going to be very happy with the Vibration of that 8 Maturity Number. If they do have the 8 Vibration somewhere else in their Numerology Blueprint, you may have seen them struggling to establish financial security. This ease with money will show up later in their lives, as their 8 Maturity Number starts to kick in. So if you know one that is struggling right now, just be aware that in later life, there is a good chance that it won’t be an issue.

The 9 Maturity Number
If the person you are interested in is a 9 Maturity Number: The 9 Maturity Number feels called upon to leave the world a better place than when they found it. As they get older, this is going to be an even more important priority. Think of a disaster like Hurricane Katrina or the tsunami of 2004, someone with a 9 Maturity Number would fly there to offer help, or at least contribute all their spare money to the victims if they couldn’t get there. They will organize others for the task as well, and see that they carry through with the mission. If there are 9s elsewhere in their Numerology Blueprint, then this has already been part of their life purpose. One of the things they have to overcome, if they are a 9 Maturity Number, is any resentment of unfair treatment in their childhoods. As they get older, they will realize that we are all connected and ask themselves what they can do to leave their mark in a positive way. If you love someone who has the 9 Maturity Number, but has a Personal Numerology Chart filled with more self-centered Energy, be aware that they will become more involved in unselfish service to others in their later years. Just be prepared to join them on their journey and be willing to abandon some of your own selfish desires for the greater good. If your Personal Numerology Charts are in sync, then this can be an exhilarating time for both of you.

Inner Planets to Angles: Electric Bolts from the Blue


We’ve all felt it at one time or another, that feeling of instant ‘ooo la la.’ Our eyes meet another’s, we feel a frisson of electricity, and then we know. We’re at home, at peace, and it feels good to be known. We’re complete. This is the ‘other’ we’ve been waiting for.

There are a lot of aspects that are responsible for this kind of sudden attraction, usually from the outer planets: Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. The “three bullies,” as I call them, all act as magnets when they attach themselves to one of our more personal or sensitive areas.

But the most potent, and dependable, source of attraction is something a lot of people don’t pay enough attention to in synastry, and that is planetary contact with the angles and angle rulers. (The “angles” are the Ascendant, IC or Imum Coeli, the Descendant, and the MC or Medium Coeli.) It doesn’t matter what planet it is; if it falls on your angles from someone else’s chart you will feel it immediately, and often profoundly. And because the angles are what they are, they provide a kind of intimacy that often eludes the outer planet attractions.

Angle Ruler Contacts

Comparison of angles and angle ruler contacts used to be considered crucial in synastry. In fact, it used to be an astrological ‘rule’ that you couldn’t have a long-term relationship unless the angles of one person hit the relationship planets (Venus-Mars, Moon-Saturn and the Sun) of another, or the angle rulers were in contact, in some way.

The Sun and the Moon are a natural archetypal pairing, much like Yin and Yang. But the other planets here are considered relationship planets because they have to do with our relations with the external world. We have the polarity of Aries-Libra, and their natural association with the Ascendant/Descendant and ‘Self’ versus ‘Other.’ But we also have the polarity of Cancer-Capricorn and Moon-Saturn. This is the polarity of ‘inside’ (Moon) versus ‘outside’ (Saturn): What I have within versus what I must make of myself. And these are the natural rulers of the fourth and tenth houses, representative of yet another angle, the MC/IC (Imum Coeli/Medium Coeli). Who can deny that both conditioning (IC) and status/growth (MC) play their part in our attractions?

Angles and the Cardinal Cross

In essence, our relationships are determined by the archetype of the cardinal cross. Cardinal signs are known by the keyword ‘initiation.’ In other words, our cardinal houses, and our angles, get things going. This is how love makes the world go round. It’s no accident that our relationships are often the greatest spur to our spiritual growth.

But, for some reason, angles are not treated with the respect that they deserve. While we’re all busy figuring out the meaning of the midpoint between Ceres and the Black Moon, the angles languish in confusion and anonymity. A lot of people are uncomfortable with the idea of the rising sign itself, and mostly we relegate each angle half to one or two keywords: the Ascendant is ‘the mask,’ the IC represents ‘family,’ the Descendant is ‘partner,’ and the MC is ‘career.’ What a sad and simplistic description for so dynamic and active a cross.

Angle Calculations

Our angles are gateways to our own becoming, which is why they are so potent in relationship ties. Angles aren’t static, but are descriptive of who we are as a work in progress. (In fact, you can see this clearly if you work with secondary progressions, in which the role of the angles becomes crystal clear.) When something touches our angles, it touches the deepest part of our experience as human beings. Angles open up the floodgate of meaningful experience. This is why transits to angles are often more potent than transits to planets.

Angles are as sensitive as antennae, as raw as nerves, and as responsive as fuel to a flame. Angles are calculated by a measurement of time and space. Time and space create our material reality. In a natal chart, this cross of matter intersects the eternal spirit (the circle). Ultimately, they represent how we negotiate our time on this earth. The natal chart is a diagram of the way our eternal spirit connects and evolves through our earthly experience. Without angles, we have no compass. We have no North to guide us.

One of the reasons astrology places so much emphasis on the angles in synastry, is that when angle meets planet there is constant stimulation. If a person’s planet is on our angles, and they excite or attract us in some way, they are likely to always do so. It isn’t the same with planetary pairings, who often learn their lessons and move on. The immediate attraction with angles often remains stimulating long after that Venus-Mars trine between the charts has become ho hum. Couples who are still holding hands after long decades together often have lots of angle contact, or angles emphasized in the composite chart. They still feel the initial ‘buzz.’ (Of course, this can go both ways. If there is someone irritating you with a difficult planet, or if your angle is hitting something uncomfortable in the other chart, you’ll feel that, too.)

Inner Planets to Angles

On the whole, inner planets to angles are a positive thing, unless the planet is very troubled in the other chart. We get to know that planet intimately through another being. The planet person feels that planet enhanced and made stronger and louder through the contact. All aspects matter, but mainly we should be paying attention to the conjunction (and, by natural course, the opposition) and the square. These connections get even juicier if the planet involved is also an angle ruler, particularly of the Ascendant or Descendant.
Here’s a quick overview of the inner planets to angles:
  • The Sun on any angle brings feelings of acceptance, warmth and a kind of creative liberation (I celebrate myself).
  • The Moon falling on an angle brings a powerful intimacy, and a sense of feeling known and understood.
  • Mercury on an angle stimulates the desire and ability to connect and share, and will mitigate any communication issues there may be between the charts.
  • Venus stimulates pleasure, appreciation and often a sense of beauty in the other and in ourselves.
  • Mars brings fire and desire to any angle it touches. It makes us feel alive. Aside from the sexual component, it provides a great stimulus to get things going.

Aspects to the IC/MC

We’re used to using the Ascendant/Descendant as the compass for relationship, but aspects to the IC/MC can be just as profound. When the IC is contacted, the other person feels like home to us. I’ve known him/her forever; words are not necessary (unless you have Gemini on the IC). Like the Descendant, the IC carries a bit of shadow to it. It isn’t the most open of houses. We take refuge in our IC; we keep our secrets there. It’s where we feel safe. We may welcome someone’s Sun or Moon or Jupiter there, but feel less sure whether we want to let Mars in, when he comes knocking. The IC symbolizes our seat of power, the place we are most deeply ourselves, and we can feel vulnerable, if that is exposed. Contacts to our IC from another person’s planet can either inspire a deep sense of belonging, or cause us to feel endangered and at risk.

Back in the days when social status was destiny (particularly for women), it is easy to see how the MC played a part in marriage and relationships. The MC represented your status in the community. A good marriage gave you status, and a partner whose Sun fell on your MC would fit the bill nicely. We like to think that that kind of thing doesn’t occur anymore, but we all know it does. Status can play a huge part in our choice of mate. When the MC is stimulated by another person’s planet we can feel newly awakened, ambitious and alive. This person’s perception of me is just what I wished my idea of myself could be. The MC plays a huge part in whether or not we achieve our potential. Synastry contacts there assure that our partner is our support and/or stimulus to our dreams. The MC is also emphasized when material security is an issue. This is particularly true if a woman is not in touch with her own masculine energy (Sun, Mars, Saturn). If she has problems ‘owning’ these planets, the quick fix is to marry them, and often there are contacts from the masculine planets to the MC when this occurs.

Angles in Action

Now, imagine that we’re walking around the earth with our angles sticking out, hungry for experience and life’s encounters. We meet someone whose Venus conjuncts our Descendant. This person seems to be perfection personified, the embodiment of everything we’ve ever valued or desired—everything lovely, in fact, that isn’t us. Now, if Mars is there instead of Venus, it’s more directly sexual. The shiver of attraction could be palpable. We may love the way this person does things—how he or she moves, walks, breathes. We feel the steam, no matter what sign, no matter what other aspects it may make. The person feels to us, deep down, as if s/he is our natural mate, and we can’t wait to get to him or her.

Of course, angles tend to exaggerate whatever touches them, so if our supposed ‘ideal’ of Venus/Descendant above also has Pluto opposite that Venus, and falling on our Ascendant, the power struggles inherent in the person’s Venus-Pluto tussle will profoundly affect my sense of myself, and my relationships. We will still feel the Venus, but it will be deeper and darker and slightly threatening, though we will feel no less attracted. We may be put through the wringer, but later will realize that the relationship taught us a great deal about our own inner strength, and the values that we attach to partnership.

I know of one couple where her Descendant ruler, Mars, is conjunct his Descendant, and his Descendant ruler, Uranus, is conjunct her Ascendant. These two have one of the most incompatible synastries I’ve ever seen, in terms of inter-aspects between charts, but the relationship has been running for some time on the fire of this attraction, backed with a couple of positive progressions. It’s also a powerful magnet if the Ascendant or Descendant rulers conjunct in any way. It makes us feel as if the other person plays a major part in our becoming whole.

Our angles can convey the very essence of what we need for fulfillment, and can reach out to connect to the essence of another. If you want to be a true student of synastry, closer analysis of your angles will give you greater insight into your attractions and teach you valuable lessons about sustaining relationships.
