Maturity number and Mental and Spiritual Health

By Rob Ragozzine

Many of us often experience stress because of outside events or when we believe that we have been unsuccessful, feel overworked, or do not get the things that we want in life. What is it that you want? Do you have people in your life to talk with about important issues? By talking with others, being adaptable, being open, and willing to work on your personal self image, you can better deal with the tension in your life. Although your ultimate goals or dreams may not be visible to you, you can help yourself alleviate anxiety by finding new ways to discover more about yourself and what it is that you do want out of life. 

Within Numerology, your Maturity number is one area to explore in order to get a better understanding of your abilities. You may be aware that your Soul Number indicates your wants, needs, and abilities on an inner level. Your Life Path also gives you a general outline of your calling in life. This month, I would like to focus on the Maturity Number. It is calculated with your full name at birth, and your birth date. Your Maturity number shows how your Soul Number, Life Path number and other personal numbers work together. Your Maturity number indicates abilities, yearnings, dreams, or desires that gradually surface between 30 and 40, with its full force becoming stronger throughout your 40’s. Following your Maturity number information can allow you to experience your abilities in unique ways. Discounting it, or letting obstacles get in your way, can bring about personal distress.

Of course, many of us might consider their 40’s to be midlife. What kinds of images, thoughts, and considerations cross your mind when you think about midlife? To some it may bring up thoughts about a “midlife crisis," yet not everyone, including countless professionals, believes in such a thing. Yet author Jim Conway says, "Escaping the midlife development crisis is probably as likely as the child escaping adolescence." Whatever you believe, periodically reviewing your life, making changes, and finding ways to healthfully relieve stress will always benefit you.

Your Maturity number begins to have a more profound impact on your life after the age of 35. It encompasses those skills and qualities that relate to your true self. It brings experience to the table. These are the skills that you can and should try to develop within your lifetime. It also represents your ultimate dreams and goals. While the characteristics of this number are usually able to be seen during our youth and early adulthood, we tend to lose sight of these aspects until we are older. But our lives are always influenced by this number. 

At midlife and all through our lives, we must decide what we have faith in and work toward achieving that. This becomes more important, as you realize that the power and influence of your Maturity number increases steadily as you grow older. Perhaps you regret making certain choices, or not choosing a particular career. If you do have regrets, or unfulfilled dreams, perhaps the Maturity number has some clues for you. When you ignore your Maturity number, you ignore a part of your true self. Accepting it can bring self satisfaction. When you are living up to the potential of your Maturity number then you are someone who has embraced and accepted life and willing to tackle its challenges. You are less rigid, more adaptable, and better prepared to accept your limitations. Also, you can more easily find ways to inspire yourself, and others. Of course, you may not be perfect, but you are willing to “get your hands dirty” and do the necessary work when the need arises. 

You may want to look for people who have lives that seem to include the qualities of the Maturity number. One woman whose story embodies the essence of these qualities and characteristics is Yvonne Thomas of Berlin, NH. A story about her in a local paper intrigued me. She was the librarian for Berlin, and decided to retire and work on a volunteer basis, so that the town could afford to buy books. Often, the dreams represented by your Maturity number may inspire you to take similar steps.
Describing all of the symptoms of a midlife crisis are outside the scope of this document. However, psychological distress usually plays a role. Those of us with adequate support systems may be able to handle the stress associated with our problems. Those of us who are not may try to escape through any number of ways including alcohol, drugs, food, relationships, television, and so on. Finding ways to manage your distress, especially early in life, can help you to avoid more serious problems later in life. It doesn’t matter whether you are a teenager, in your twenties, or older. Finding ways to build a support system, connect with others, look for others like yourself, and find outlets for your talents, will all help in the long run. Your Maturity number can help to indicate your strengths and abilities. It will be up to you to find ways to connect with them.

You should always feel free to be able to make healthy changes, especially at midlife. Ultimately it is up to you to find ways to cope, handle stress, and take control of your life. At times we all seem to get stuck. Obstacles may appear in your life and delay you from achieving. However finding a healthy way to change your circumstances can be a way toward feeling better about yourself. Change can be good and is not an escape when done in a beneficial way. 

Living up to your Maturity number is critical towards achieving optimal self-acceptance and living a balanced life. By believing in yourself and recognizing who and where you are in your life, you can build hope and find courage to move forward. Hopefully, you will be able to allow yourself to manage your stress, and have what you want in life. 

Good luck on your journey into Soulful living and Numerology!


In numerology, your Maturity number shows something that becomes important to you as you get older. It’s a goal that begins to manifest around age 30-35, and comes with the knowledge that you’ve been gaining about yourself, and what you truly want from life. As you get older, it becomes more and more important to you. To find your Maturity number, add together your Life Path number and your Expression number. Reduce this number to a single digit if it’s a double digit, unless it’s a Master number (11,22,33).

Maturity Number 1
With Maturity number 1, you learn how to become independent, a leader, and you want to start new things. You have great luck when you do start new things, and you can be ambitious and outspoken. As you get older, you can become completely independent and rely only on yourself for whatever you need.

Maturity Number 2

With Maturity number 2, you learn how to let other people help you at a young age, and the challenge is helping others as much as they help you. You want to keep the peace, are diplomatic and crave harmony, and are sensitive. As you get older, you find the partner that you yearn for, and the harmony you want.

Maturity Number 3

With Maturity number 3, you have a strong creative streak and active imagination, but it could be a source of problems when young, or you couldn’t let it out for some reason. You want to express yourself, and have fun with life. As you get older, you can be your true creative self, and enjoy life to the fullest.

Maturity Number 4

With Maturity number 4, you can be practical and hard-working. You crave structure and order, and you know how to build something strong from the ground up. You can have problems taking responsibility for your actions. As you get older, you can be humble, practical, and find pleasure in building something lasting.

Maturity Number 5

With Maturity number 5, you love change, freedom, and adventure. You’re not afraid to take chances and be bold and daring. You can lack direction when you’re young, and wander aimlessly for some time, struggling to put down roots. As you get older, you can be a world traveler and adventurer, and are always young at heart.

Maturity Number 6
With Maturity number 6, you care deeply about other people, and will give as much as you can. You live to serve, but you can go too far, especially when young, and can become lost in your beliefs. As you get older, you can create the family that you want, and find the happiness that you seek.

Maturity Number 7
With Maturity number 7, you live as you want to live, and it’s different from everyone else. You strive to learn as much as you can, and spend a lot of time by yourself seeking wisdom. As you get older, you can meditate and contemplate as much as you want, and share the wisdom that you’ve gained.

Maturity Number 8

With Maturity number 8, you can achieve a lot in your life, but you have to make sure you don’t give in to materialism, and embrace your spiritual self as well. You’re hard-working, determined, and organized. As you get older, you can become a master of whatever you do, and gain understanding.

Maturity Number 9

With Maturity number 9, you have to learn to love all of humankind, and serve others. You care deeply for others, are very responsible, and should focus more on your spiritual self. As you get older, you can work at helping other people in some way, especially through healing or philanthropy, and opening your heart

Your Soul’s Purpose through Numerology

By  Margaret I. Jang 

Uncover your soul’s purpose through numerology in order to answer the age old question of ……..

Why Are You Here?

Are you unsure why you are here or question what your true purpose in life is supposed to be? Conceivably, you have reached a period in your life in which you know, deep within, that you should be doing something other than what you are presently doing. Or perhaps you sense or feel that your life is just not what it should be – there seems to be a missing piece of life’s puzzle….but alas, you can’t quite put your finger on what it is.

Some people are very lucky, because uncannily, from a very early age, they know exactly what their contribution and purpose in life is intended to be. With great determination they unwaveringly remain focused and steadily strive toward their goal. They are unrelentingly driven by a greater purpose to implement and accomplish their soul’s essential plan. But to most, the “essential plan” remains a shrouded mystery, because unfortunately, this type of clarity is not what the majority of people perceive.

More often than not, you remain unfocused, uninspired and unaware of what your soul has come to learn and experience. Sadly, you become stuck in an unending cycle of uninspiring routine. Although you may have a sense of longing that keeps nudging and nagging or feel deep urges that stick like an unquenchable thirst, you still remain blocked, unable to fathom the meaning of received impressions, signs or signals indicating that you should be either living differently or doing something else, in other words, you are not following your soul’s initial plan.

Elevate and Transform

In order to elevate and transform to a more positive level, it is imperative that you intricately know who and what you are from the deepest regions of your core.
  • What are your likes, your dislikes, your innate talents, your natural interests, compatibility, positive and negative traits or hidden qualities?
  • Do you really know why you behave or react the way you do?
  • Why can you inter-relate companionably with some people, but yet not others?
  • Do you know why you seem to be driven in a certain direction?
  • Do you know why you may want to self-destruct?
  • Do you know why you may be aggressive, shy, lazy, outgoing, reclusive, lively, etc.?
  • Do you know why you are prone to experience set-backs, road-blocks or bad luck?
  • Do you know why you may experience discontent at certain periods in your life?
  • How, when and why can any of this affect your present life?

Initiating Awareness

Luckily, there are numerous ways in which to initiate your awareness in order to uncover the inner you and reconnect to your true spiritual essence.
  • You can visit a psychic or an intuitive for spiritual counselling.
  • You can join a religious organization.
  • You can join a cult and follow their directive.
  • You can learn to meditate.
  • You can pray.
  • You can self-channel to receive Universal guidance.
  • You can seek out various divination methods such as Tarot, Crystal Ball Gazing, Pendulum, I Ching, Runes, Astrology or Numerology to gain further in-depth insight.

Each method has value, as long as they are used only as “tools” in order to gain greater understanding, acquire a second opinion or to expand your perception. It is equally important to resist becoming totally dependent on any of these methods, because this will only lead to creating co-dependency and personal dis-empowerment. As with anything, use sound judgement and common sense.

You Made the Choices

It is believed that before incarnation, each spirit/soul chooses its own name, birth time, birth place, parents, siblings, friends and associates. Your soul’s purpose to incarnate from spirit into human existence is for the opportunity to learn and experience certain lessons, plus acquire valuable knowledge and wisdom in order to spiritually evolve. Numerology is based on the your given birth name (the name on your original birth certificate), plus your date of birth. Since in spirit form, you pre-choose your parents, your birth name is also pre-arranged to coincide with your present journey. No two people will have the exact same name and birth date.

Science of Numbers Ancient

This science of numbers can be traced back to 10,000 B.C. and was used by ancient Egyptian, Chinese, Greek, Indian, Hebrew and Roman civilizations. 2500 years ago, Pythagoras, a Greek philosopher and mathematician, believed that each letter and number has its own unique energy vibration and sound pattern, which creates energy or transmutes energy and its physical matter. Every number has positive and negative aspects and the energy vibration can either attract or repel other numbers indicating compatibility or conflict issues. Pythagoras combined the metaphysical science of numbers into a structured method used as a basis for modern numerology.

Uncovering Your Soul’s Purpose

This article only glosses the surface for how numerology can help you uncover your soul’s purpose. An mini or condensed numerology report is approximately ten pages of information covering “core” areas such as the Birth-Day, Life Path, Destiny/Expression, Soul/Heart’s Desire, Personality and Maturity numbers. A comprehensive  numerology report produces a minimum of thirty pages of information and covers all the areas of the mini report, as well as pinpoint significant timelines of opportunities, events or challenges. Either report helps you to understand the true you – to reveal your soul’s complex nature and give you direction or target areas that may need attention, as well as disclose your unique place in the structure of human existence.

Numerology Not for Forecasting

Please keep in mind that numerology is not meant to forecast future happenings so that you can deliberately alter, manipulate or eliminate them. Numerology is primarily used as a catalyst to uncover and explore larger realities concerning your life’s blueprint. The aim is to use this as a tool to indicate possible opportunities or events that may either increase your potential or present a challenge, which can then help you to understand or adapt to changes or transitions during certain life cycles. It gives you the opportunity to realize, accept and learn certain lessons through hands-on experience and acquired knowledge. Thus, you gain significant insight for how to expand your soul’s capabilities.

Essential Core Numbers

The most essential numbers in a numerology chart consists of certain “core” numbers. The names for these can vary, depending on the numerologist’s educational knowledge, interpretation and system used.

It also shows particular lessons that your soul is trying to learn in this lifetime. The effect of this number is carried with you throughout life, but it is most active between your 28th and 56th years, which in the latter years may be referred to or confused as “mid-life” crisis.

Soul’s Urge

Clues to habits, mannerisms and behaviour for you, plus the people in your life are revealed. It also filters out what you do not want to deal with – people or situations.

It shows your true power, your highest development, underlying talents, latent qualities and your real goal in life, except these you must earn. This reflects how you merge your strengths with challenges and how you begin to live in harmony with your inner and outer selves. Once you understand what this number represents, you can make your latter years the best years of your life.

Calculating Your Life Path

So for interest sake, let us focus on your “Life Path” or (also called “Birth Force” or “Birth”) number to uncover the basic meaning of its effect regarding your soul’s purpose. But keep in mind that your “Destiny” number shows how your “Life Path” number will be expressed.


  1. First, write out your full birth date (month/day/year).
  2. If there is an “11” or “22” in your birth date, as you add across, keep the number whole – do not reduce to a single digit (these are termed as master numbers which have added significance).
  3. Total the numerical value (see example below).
  4. If the final total shows as a double digit, add them together to reduce to a single digit (except for master numbers 11 and 22).

For this example, the “Life Path” (or Birth Force or Birth) number calculates to number “11” (formally written as 38/11) and because this is one of the master numbers, it is not reduced to a single digit. For the interpretation regarding the Life Path number, see the chart listed below.

Remember: This is your direction for what your soul came to do or what you must learn, plus become in this lifetime – the route you must take, whether you want to or not. This is the most important number in your chart and is also tied to your Birth-Day – it indicates your level of conscious development thus far. It gives a broad outline of opportunities, it points to suitable occupations, it outlines challenges and lessons you will encounter, plus it reveals your natural gifts and talents that will allow you to fulfill your destiny.
Life Path
You have a determined inner drive which gives you plenty of courage and back-bone.  Your personality will never be mistaken as being meek or passive. Although you have the capability to be a born leader – to lead by example, you must learn to be independent, relying less on others; learn to go it alone and most importantly be your own person. To you, life is an exciting adventure in which you want to experience head-on action with lots of activity. You are a self-starter, strong-willed and very creative with original ideas, but you can be quite stubborn where you like things done exactly your way. You don’t like taking orders and you only accept advice if it coincides with your own opinion. With your strong, forceful, but warm personality you can learn to cooperate without losing your own individuality or identity. In order to excel and succeed with your ambitions, you willingly make personal sacrifices. Your mental capability is strong; you are a brilliant logical analyzer and a quick decision-maker in which you act with confidence, plus decisiveness. You love launching new projects, but once they are in motion, you fail to follow them through to fruition leaving that task to others. Avoid becoming too domineering, dictatorial, arrogant, selfish or inconsiderate; instead develop your mind, body and spirit into harmonious, efficient balance. Develop and strengthen your own gifts; utilize your own administrative and executive abilities. Suitable Occupation: leader, inventor, promoter, inspector, advertising director, manufacturer, explorer, creative artist, contractor, physician, director, business owner, controller, promoter, writer, illustrator, executive.
Although you possess leadership strength, your true strength lies in being supportive and helpful to others. You must learn to work in partnership, for you work at your best within groups or communities, rather than alone, but avoid limiting yourself to a small few; force yourself to work within larger groups. With your easy-going, courteous and agreeable disposition, you have a natural gift for diffusing difficult situations by using tact and diplomacy. Patience and persistence helps you to effectively create peace and harmony during disputes. By nature you are kind, patient, considerate, understanding and unselfish, but somewhat passive and generally you prefer to work behind the scenes instead of directly in the spotlight. Because of your over-sensitivity, you may suffer emotional upset when others don’t return the same sympathy or consideration that you give and then be tempted to hide in your shell to lick your wounds. Despite being proud of your accomplishments, you are unconcerned about receiving monetary praise or recognition for your deeds, although you do enjoy receiving compliments of praise. Avoid becoming over-emotional or moody and take care not to betray confidences. Watch that your sensitivity doesn’t make you too timid or shy when dealing with others; otherwise you may either over-react or withdraw unnecessarily. Suitable Occupationpeacemaker, advisor, psychologist, secretary, medium/channeller, artist, statistician, politician, teacher, diplomat, mediator, organizer, musician, composer, theatrical producer, poet, sculptor, landscaper, mining engineer, physicist, bacteriologist, merchant, statistician, manager, office worker. 
3 With your witty, adaptable and impulsive generous nature you have the ability to shed light and joy. Since you are a good talker, express your opinions freely and joyfully through creative or artistic endeavours. You love to surround yourself with beauty, whether through congenial friendships or objects of beauty. Ugly environments have no appeal to your finer senses and physical work doesn’t attract you either. By nature you are optimistic, humorous, charming and happy-go-lucky. You enjoy doing things on a large scale, being in the limelight, the centre of attention at social gatherings or anywhere you have an audience. You can be indecisive when making up your mind or you may prefer someone else to make your decisions to avoid being confronted with responsibility. If you fail to act upon your own capabilities, you may withdraw into yourself, instead of expressing your extensive feelings. Establishing business partnerships is not favourable, because you will find this too restrictive. Although you don’t mind giving orders to others, you dislike taking orders; just be careful that you don’t become dictatorial. Your shrewd observance combined with hard work can bring you much success. Take care to avoid spreading your talents too thinly or you may risk scattering your energies, becoming a master at none. Instead, draw upon a couple of your stronger interests and then become expert in these areas. Learn to distinguish your ego’s wants or needs from those of your soul so that you do not waste time chasing illusions. Avoid becoming too frivolous, superficial, gossipy, dictatorial, intolerant or impatient with others.  Suitable Occupation: dancer, actor, poet, writer, singer, salesperson, correspondent, lecturer, designer, cartoonist, artist, illustrator, cosmetician, dietician, photographer, social secretary, missionary, clergy, welfare worker, entertainer, electrician, dressmaker.
You are the foundation for any enterprise. As an employee, you are solid as a rock – dependable, organized, efficient, dutiful, faithful, hard-working and very conscientious. You have a keen, analytical mind coupled with logical, sound reasoning and approach life with serious, down-to-earth practicality; you can easily separate wrong from right. Part of your lesson in this life is to be of service – to build a lasting legacy for a greater good and to teach your accumulated knowledge and wisdom to less evolved souls. Greater wisdom and inner strength are developed when you lead by example, seeing things through to fruition. You dislike being hurried and are not readily acceptable to too many changes; much preferring a set routine or having a solid foundation, a good home life and proper training for whatever you are involved with. Although you may be faced with many responsibilities, you must exercise patience and cheerfulness. When faced with restrictions or frustration, resist allowing your will-power to interfere and refrain from complaining or gossiping; otherwise, this may lead to situations of arguments or hostility. Instead, develop tolerance toward others and avoid becoming narrow-minded, domineering, bossy, stubborn or restrictive just to have your own way. Allow patient perseverance to see you through all odds; just be sure that you don’t waste time or energy chasing illusions. Suitable Occupation: manager, buyer, musical director, architect, accountant, manufacturer, proof-reader, secretary, banker, coordinator, technician, physician, professor, analyst, scientist, writer, chemist, economist, musician, horticulturist, builder, contractor, mechanical engineer, surgeon, diagnostician, biologist, professor, skilled craftsman.
Freedom is important to you in which you are footloose and fancy free, desiring a life with no restrictions, but with plenty of change; you resist being pinned down to any one interest. You always want to see and do something different – this applies both to the material and spiritual levels. Take care not to lose yourself in the illusion of material pleasures by allowing your bad habits to become your master, because this will only stop your spiritual growth.  In this lifetime you must learn about constructive freedom. Freedom is not supposed to be used as an excuse to retreat from responsibility or undesirable situations and if you back into a safety zone, you will only experience frustration of losing valued freedom. Your life will be full of travel, frequent changes and variety, so you must remain versatile and adaptable to unusual circumstances or extraordinary conditions. Use this opportunity to learn new languages, other lifestyles or to expand your own development. Develop discipline and patience to see things through to the end, instead of running off leaving plans unfinished and in disarray. Because you love new adventures, your flexibility prevents you from incurring too much stress. However, refrain from over-indulging in the good life; otherwise you may be tempted to overuse alcohol, sex, drugs or food. Instead, first establish a solid foundation that gives you some stability, so that you have somewhere to return to. Suitable Occupation: speaker, writer, editor, promoter, theatrical manager or director, actor, scientific inventor, electrical inspector, entertainer, sales, lawyer, philosopher, counsellor, psychologist, character analyst, broadcaster, sports coach, explorer, realtor, broker, inspector, investigator, detective, plastic surgeon, masseur, athlete.  
You are the expression for universal love – an unconditional love requiring nothing in return. But until you learn to love in a non-possessive way and become independent of requiring returned love, you will continue to encounter heartaches. Family and friendships are important to you, in which case, you love the responsibility and duty to keep the connection going and to keep everybody happy. But you must learn that the true meaning of responsibility doesn’t give you the right to dominate situations. Instead, learn to adjust harmoniously to touchy conditions or circumstances, whether it’s pertaining to your own life or to others. In all cases, it is necessary to create balance so that you can offer service with cheerful, quiet efficiency. Because you are sympathetic, loving and generous by nature, you are always ready and willing to help others, but be careful that you are not taken advantage of. Learn to recognize who actually needs assistance. Materiality is unimportant to you and you will sacrifice your own needs for someone else – to the extent that you will give them the shirt off your back. But resist becoming a doormat; learn to release feelings of guilt and establish boundaries.  Retain your own ideals, without forcing them on others and avoid becoming domineering, overly fussy or critical. Suitable Occupation: social worker, counsellor, social worker, physician, nurse, musician, restaurateur, human resource manager, hotel executive, artist, teacher, publisher, songwriter, chemist, poet, musician, singer, librarian, translator, actor, doctor, merchant, electrician, building contractor, nurse, bacteriologist, editor, homemaker, tutor.
You are the link between the spiritual and earthly realms, whereby you are naturally very sensitive, intuitive and perceptive to higher consciousness. But you need to listen to the quiet voice “within” in order to receive answers to your problems or inspirations of greater knowledge that can benefit others. You always seek wisdom or higher truths to increase your store of useful knowledge, but use this to benefit humanity. Alas, you are somewhat of an enigma in that you think and act differently from others, but you probably do not even understand yourself, regardless of your introspective thinking or powers of analysis and contemplation; be careful that you do not confuse introspection with illusion. Although you incarnated for a specific purpose and may have to make great personal sacrifices to bring this to fruition, you must also guard against getting lost in meditative grandeur in which you forget about your mission. You prefer quiet solitude, spending enormous amounts of time alone thinking, studying, analyzing and dreaming grandiose ideas, but you are not too adaptable to the modern world, so rarely do you act upon your ideas. If you fear loneliness or failure you will experience hardships and find life difficult. You enjoy recognition for your accomplishments, but learn to operate without it. Instead, search for the deeper truths about life and then with humbleness, teach and inspire others. Avoid becoming overly critical, perfectionist, sarcastic, distant, moody or despondent. Because you live in a world of your own making, you must avert your penchant to disassociate yourself from reality; beware not to lose touch with the reality of everyday living. Although you can survive on very little, resist accumulating material possessions; instead apply spiritual laws to material interactions. Suitable Occupation: financier, lawyer, judge, scientist, inventor, university administrator, investment counsellor, psycho-analyst, geologist, musician, clergy, naturalist, astronomer, artist, writer, actor, musical composer, meditation teacher, medium/channeller, appraiser, estimator, farmer, florist, business proprietor.
Once you develop efficient management skills, you have great potential for anything relating to business or commercial affairs. Use your leadership abilities to direct the world toward good causes that will benefit all.  If you use positive self-confidence with balanced ambition, while employing practical, down-to-earth hard work, you will in most cases, achieve success.  Keep in mind that it is the striving toward your ambition that should bring you satisfaction and not the actual goal that is achieved. Achieving material success is aimed to help you recognize the illusions of the outward material world and then to assist you with finding your inner spiritual self. Part of your lesson is to learn how to deal with the uninspiring, practical and material aspects of everyday life and to let go of the lower ego self. Learn to understand the laws that govern money – accumulation, use and power. Resist chasing or misusing power and money to the exclusion of all else. Avoid grandiose dreams, visions or impractical attitudes.  In relationships you may act with unemotional physical restraint foolishly thinking that material gifts make up for this deficiency, but this is just another illusion. Suitable Occupation: banker, lawyer, stockbroker, manufacturer, buyer, librarian, engineer, financial or political advisor, accountant, critic, teacher, cartoonist, editor, publisher, athlete, sales, consultant, business owner, charity organizer, transportation builder or politician.
You are the humanitarian of the world, placing others before you and giving selfless service to others – a culmination of your past life experiences. Although you may prefer to work for yourself rather than for others, you will be happier when working in global aid organizations that benefit humanity.  Inwardly you have a strong feeling about what you must specifically accomplish in this lifetime, but you must take care not to start anything that you cannot complete, because this is the end of a cycle.  Part of your lesson is to learn how to be more broad-minded and to abandon all prejudices by realizing the basic universality of humanity. In doing so you have greater potential to be far-sighted and helpful, in which you will be stimulated to give willingly to others, without expecting recompense – gratitude is the only reward necessary for your assistance. Somehow, you frequently start off in the opposite direction to the one you actually want in order to get to where you want to go. When you release “control” concerning ideas that you need friendship or satisfaction, you will find true love. With your aggressive, energetic nature you are capable of great achievement, although you have a tendency toward being a workaholic for worthy causes – just take care that you do not risk depleting your own health. Resist trying to attain material ambition or possessions, because in the end you will only feel disappointment and dissatisfaction. Although you will attract much, you must hold on to nothing – you belong to the world.  Avoid becoming intolerant, disrespectful, unfeeling or uncompassionate toward others. Suitable Occupation: teacher, artist, healer, humanitarian, philanthropist, surgeon, criminal lawyer, advisor, judge, composer, writer, minister, singer, banker, publisher, pharmacist, poet, actor.
Master 11
You are an “old” soul, identified as the “illuminator”, who is here to help humanity progress to attain a better world. Those who have this master number have important tasks to accomplish in service to humanity. You may appear somewhat dreamy, because you live both in the spiritual and earthly realms. This gives you the ability to act as a lightening rod or a clear channel for accessing higher information. This is not an easy path – you will encounter many hard and testing situations, but you have the resources to succeed, although many opt out, retreating to the lower energy vibration of single digit “2”. By developing your inner forces of perception and understanding, you will become aware of special knowledge, skills and talents gained from many past lives. You see things differently, knowing there is more to life than what you can see with your physical eyes. Your job is to inspire others by example, by living the “truths” that the universe continuously reveals to you. But you must be alert in order to learn what type of illumination and revelation to use in order to inspire others. Learn to trust your intuition and faithfully follow your inner guidance in order to elevate everything to the inspirational level. Most likely materiality will not interest you; instead you prefer to live humbly in the limelight. Resist striving for accumulation or hoarding or using your special powers for material gain for you will only feel dissatisfaction. Avoid getting caught daydreaming fantasies that separate you from reality – always remain practical and keep your motives pure. Inevitably, you may suffer from nervous tension created when you swing from the high energy vibration of “11” to the lower single digit energy vibration of “2” or vice versa. Suitable Occupation: minister, lecturer, musician, poet, dancer, entertainer, welfare or charity worker, psycho-analyst, teacher, inspirational writer, motivational leader, inventor, explorer, psychologist, philosopher, actor, artist, writer/author, manager, musical director, organizer, promoter, lawyer, numerologist, graphologist.
Master 22
You are an “old” soul; recognized as the “master builder”, where your thoughts are turned into practical use for a greater, higher purpose. Those who have this master number have a special mission to accomplish, which is to demonstrate the oneness of all. Be aware that if you ignore this call you will have to return again to complete it.  This is not an easy path – this is one of the most difficult vibrations to ensue and many opt out, retreating to the lower single digit energy vibration of “4”. You have the skill and potential to mastermind and then construct projects or movements on a global scale – in service to humanity – deep inside you know what you must do. If you use your potential to capacity, most likely you will leave a lasting mark, a significant legacy that will benefit the entire world – this is your reward. Your dream is for peace, happiness, prosperity and love for all.  You understand the greater forces of the universe and are able to channel and use these abilities advantageously. Resist being tempted to use your position or power to harvest material gain or to retreat from utilizing your great potential and powers, thus accomplishing very little. If you do, then you will feel frustrated or suffer the consequences of nervous tension.  Suitable Occupation: builder, buyer, director of healing/welfare/charity/international organizations, teacher, writer, global reformer, diplomat, international financier, law or trade expert, economist, politician or leader, physician, translator, athlete.

Just a Guideline

The “Life Path” interpretation reveals a small part of who you are and should be used only as a guideline.  Numerology simply identifies choices, but how you manoeuvre through these choices is entirely up to you – you can choose to ignore your options and remain unchanged or you can choose to embrace your options and reap greater reward.  Once you gain insightful knowledge about your true inner or spiritual self, you will be better prepared to shed doubtful fears, heal emotional wounds, alter out-dated thinking, plus balance and harmonize your lifestyle.  You will then consciously express the more positive aspects of your numbers.

Avoid Being Ignorant

If the “Life Path” interpretation opened your awareness just a fraction or alleviated niggling questions, then it is well worth to investigate other possibilities in which numerology may benefit.  In order for your soul to prosper spiritually, you must be open to accept your individuality; your own uniqueness.  Avoid remaining ignorant about you…. the true you, because without truthful awareness and acceptance you cannot initiate your soul’s transformation and progression.

Master Numbers
Write down your entire name – the way you sign it in your daily affairs. Using the above chart, place under each letter of your name the number assigned to it. Follow these steps:
Add up all of the numbers in your name.
Reduce these numbers to the lowest numeric value. For examples:
A name adding up to a total of 145 is reduced by adding 1 + 4 + 5 = 10. If this number is one of the Master Numbers listed above, read the information under the Master Number. If your total is not a Master Number, reduce it again. 1 + 0 = 1. Read the information under #1.
A name adding up to a total of 99 is reduced by adding 9 + 9 = 18. 18 is not a Master Number, so reduce it again: 1 + 8 = 9. Read the information under #9.

Like a lightening rod, attracting powerful ideas, intuitions, and information. Yours is a powerful presence, you are a channel for higher vibrations, a bridge between the conscious and the unconscious. It is essential that you learn to control the flow of energy from higher realms; otherwise, you may feel like a victim, thrown about by its emotional turmoil and nervous tension. You have always known that you are different, enormously sensitive and aware, especially as a child. This made you vulnerable to conflicts and painful situations. Most #11s have a difficult childhood for this reason. You were shy due to your extreme sensitivity. A lively imagination in which you can get lost and have trouble distinguishing between fantasy and reality as the world knows it. Your challenge is to focus on being grounded, so you can deal with your lightening bolts of insight. Highly emotional and dependent upon relationships, idealistic, impractical, and at times disorderly. Your reasons for doing things are not easily understood by others. Grounding and discipline are essential for you to be productive. A balanced #11 is one of the most unique and impressive of all people. It is gifted with insight and illumination, which it can transmit to others. You are a natural teacher.

#22 – the Master Builder, Internationalist. A unique gift for perceiving a divine archetype and bringing a semblance of it into earthly manifestation. The ability to assume great responsibility and to make important achievements that are enormous in scope. Desire to change history, there is no limit to what you can do as you assume positions of great power and wealth. Your influence can be world-wide as you create structures that assist in the enlightenment of humankind. The greatest liability of your tremendous potential for achievement is that it will require your entire life. Even as a child, you had a vague sense of what you must do and were intimidated by the awesomeness of your task. You have felt the intimations of your power, but these feelings have caused you to be paralyzed by doubt. The promise and reward of #22 is equaled only by the degree of difficulty and struggle necessary to realize its potential. #22 offers the opportunity to tap into realms in which your day is expanded, your capacity to create and inspire multiplied, and your ability to perform lasting service to humankind extended beyond the normal limits of one life. You may turn away from the challenge of #22 and settle for the safety of limitations and practical considerations of the #4 (22 reduces to 4). You may not want to take the risks presented by #22. This is permissible, but can cause frustration, because on some level you feel called to greater things. Nevertheless, even when manifesting on the #4 level, your chances for success are good. Great leadership talent, a world citizen. Choose a spouse who will contribute with you. Blessed with farsighted vision, deeply want to create something of lasting value to humankind. Any career choice is possible for #22; no real limitations exist.

#33 – the Master, a very advanced being. A mission of self-sacrifice and service to others. Must live impersonally with a detached but caring attitude. If you do not choose to live at the level of #33, you may choose to live out the #6.

#44 – the Master, who is to serve the material needs of the world through productive and sound techniques. You must gain complete mastery over your mind and body while here on earth. Your desire is to be that of universal prosperity and you are to set about constructing situations in which that is possible. Example: Edgar Cayce, a #44, solved the health problems of thousands; he served their material needs.

Life Path Number Compatibility

By Seventh Life Path

You will notice that master numbers (11, 22, and 33) are handled differently when examining your Life Path compatibility. They are reduced to their single digit values, so if your Life Path number is 11, 22, or 33, use your number as it would be reduced to a single digit 2, 4, or 6 ... respectively.

The chart below is roughly based on the Life Path compatibility. You can click on the numbers to view a short summary for each number set.

Destiny or Expression Number

By Felicia Bender

If there are some things that don’t quite compute for you as you get to know your Life Path number, then add this information about your Expression or Destiny Number to help round out your specific life purpose.  Some Numerologist’s call this number the Expression Number and some call it the Destiny Number.

Your Expression/Destiny Number is a vital component or compliment to your Life Path number. I like to say that your Life Path number represents a one-dimensional look at who you are – it indicates your primary purpose in life.  Yet when you add it with the Expression/Destiny number, the Expression/Destiny number indicates to you the manner in which you’ll go about achieving your purpose, as indicated by your Life Path number.
It’s like taking your Life Path number and pouring it into a martini shaker and then adding the Destiny number to the mix, shaking (or stirring!) and then the result is a more complex, holographic version of who you are and how you’re supposed to go about doing what you’re doing.
So, as an example:  Say you’re a One Life Path, you know at the get-go that you’re all about leadership, acting on original ideas, confidence, creativity, initiation, action, competition.  So then, when you place your Destiny number on top of your Life Path number, you get the flavor and manner in which you go about achieving your One Life Path purpose. 
Your Destiny number is basically setting the bar for what you’re to live up to.  It’s like the expectation your teacher or parent (or you yourself!) has for your long-term goals.  The Expression/Destiny number offers you the key to how you will express your Life Path purpose.
So let’s continue with the example of the One Life Path. If you have a Two Destiny number, chances are you feel a certain amount of conflict in your life given that the One is all about Number One (you!), independence, individuality, achievement,  leadership – where the pull of the number Two is much softer and all about love, balance, harmony, and serving group dynamics.  So no wonder you might feel conflicted given your disparate goals and purpose.  This isn’t an impossible combination by any means!  In fact, every combination has its shining potentials.  The trick is to understand the basic pull of each so that you can work toward maximizing the strengths of each, diminishing the weaknesses,  and allowing it all to work in tandem.
Say you have an Eight Destiny number.  Mixed with your One Life Path, you’re much more likely to err on the side of “Hard Luck Charlie” given that both numbers have a certain amount of hard knocks built into the purpose of both the One and the Eight.
It would also explain your hard-driving nature, your devotion perhaps to business, to making money, and to achievement in the material world (or avoidance of the same!).  Both the One and the Eight are aligned with achievement on the financial realm.  That also might give you an indication of why find yourself struggling.  Perhaps you’ve swung over to the other side of the spectrum and have problems with addictions and financial loss that have overtaken your life – just as one example.
Sometimes a person will “present” more in alignment with their Destiny Number (how they go about doing their life’s purpose) than with the Life Path number itself.  Know that the Life Path number indicates what you’ve come here to learn more about.  Therefore, often the Life Path number can take time and maturity to develop, understand, and master.
Either way, knowing both your Life Path and your Destiny numbers can allow you to put some of the puzzle pieces together in a way you might not have been able to before.

What Your Destiny Number Reveals About Your Life Purpose

  • The flavor and manner of living that you must cultivate and act upon in your life;
  • Your opportunities for success and your stumbling blocks to achieving your full potential;
  • At the “end of the day,” this is how you’re destined to achieve and express your life purpose;
  • Offers you an idea of how you can make the most out of your life experience;
  • The kind of work that would be a natural compliment and expression of your life purpose as defined by your Life Path.

Calculate Your Destiny Number

Write down the name you were given at birth, just as it is written on your birth certificate.

Use the chart and apply a number to each letter of your name;  first, middle, last.  If you have more than one middle name, please use all of the names as they appear on your birth certificate.  If you’re a Jr., Second or Third, please leave that out of the equation.
Let’s use George (Timothy) Clooney as an example.  You calculate this much in the same way you calculate your Life Path number.  It’s a simple addition problem once you assign a number value to the letter in the name (as indicated by the chart below).  Like always, you must digit down to a one-digit number for each part of the calculation:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9

G   E   O   R   G   E                   T   I    M  O   T   H   Y               C   L   O   O   N   E   Y
7    5    6   9    7   5                    2   9   4   6    2   8    7               3    3   6    6    5   5    7

7+5+6+9+7+5 =  39                      2+9+4+6+2+8+7 =  38                  3+3+6+6+5+5+7 =  35
= 3 + 9 = 12                                   =  3 + 8 = 11                                  = 3 + 5 = 8
= 1 + 2 = 3                                     = 1 + 1 = 2

Now add each of the name numbers together:  3 + 2 + 8 = 13    [13 is a Karmic Number – see this post for more about the implications of the Karmic Number 13]
1 + 3 = 4
George Clooney has a 4 Destiny Number.

Destiny Number Definitions

Destiny Number One

Your destiny is to become #1 at all you do in your life.
Your task is to develop your true, authentic self and to become in leader in whatever field you find you’re the most passionate and skilled.  You’re all about power.  You want to be the best at everything you do. You expect very high standards of performance from yourself and, in turn, also expect the same from others, which can set you up for frustration and disappointment.
Your purpose is to take the lead and take initiative—the One Destiny number is not lack-luster or low-key! You’re meant to have courage, act independently on your unique and original ideas, be innovative, and take charge.  All this while communicating and acting with clarity and compassion. 
A One Destiny number sets you up for a lifetime of development of your sense of self (banish that sense of self-doubt), your willpower, and setting out with determination without allowing the naysayers or glitches along the road weigh you down or demolish your vision. You work hard and play hard.  You need to have an exercise routine that helps you burn off excess stress.
Your One Destiny number insists that even if you struggle with self confidence or hold yourself back from manifesting your full powers, you’re lined up for a destiny that demands that you embrace leadership.  You need to demonstrate your originality and leadership and also teach it to others.  The One Destiny number will demand that you develop yourself from a dependence to independence, individuation, and – ultimately – achievement and initiative.

Destiny Number Two

Your destiny is to bring people together in an atmosphere of harmony and love.
Your mission is to create harmony, balance, cooperation, and love wherever you go and in whatever you do.  Love is the cornerstone to your life and finding that perfect mate is important to you. You’re here to learn how to develop your sense of relationship;  how to successfully understand and relate to others and to yourself. 
Your path includes developing diplomacy.  Your Two Destiny encourages you to seek to be of service to the “larger cause;” whether that’s your family, your company, or any other cause or group you feel strongly about.  Your destiny is to develop adaptability, open- hearted caring, and focus on the higher good.  Understand that you need to get out and socialize, because when you isolate yourself, you suffer from pessimism, depression, and inaction. 
You thrive when you’re involved with other people and contributing to the group dynamics, whether it’s with friends, work, family, or a community group. You’ll be tested with being overly sensitive and can resort to becoming confrontational rather than the harmonizer.  Beware of needing incessant reinforcement from everyone around you, because you’re not likely to get it!  Even if you find that you’re challenged with being passive or aggressive—indecisive or lacking focus—your calling is to become a peacemaker and harmonizing influence on whatever you touch.

Destiny Number Three

Your destiny is to inspire, motivate, heal, and uplift people.
If you find you have a Destiny Number Three, you’re being called to inspire, heal, uplift, and energize others.  You’re all about performance, however that manifests for you in your life.  Your ultimate purpose comes through when you’re operating with a core sense of optimism, enthusiasm, compassion, and joy. 
Some of the qualities you bring to the table are beauty, possible eccentricity, excitement, and fame.  When you’ve tapped into your authentic sense of expression and then inspire others to use and express theirs, you’re fulfilling your life’s purpose.  If you give up on your dreams and don’t use your talents creatively, you’ll battle with depression and find yourself traveling down other unsatisfying or destructive pathways.  You must pursue your true calling, so make efforts to focus on what that is for you, believe in it and don’t be deterred from embracing it. 
Often the Three brings so many talents and ideas with it, it’s difficult to focus on just one, making procrastination or scattered focus a hurdle.  You’ll be challenged with learning to identify and embrace your own emotional life and often will be most effective in helping yourself help others through your gift of words (both verbal and written), through your amazing sense of wit and humor, and by being lighthearted and a good communicator and listener. 
You might find challenges in the areas of emotional ups and downs, depression, or being judgmental and critical. You’ll also have a tendency to over-think just about everything, so schedule in brain-relaxation or you’ll go nuts.  If you find that being onstage doesn’t feel natural to you, chances are this is the result of residual wounds from your childhood.  Don’t resist your feelings; they offer you profound wisdom. Your Three Destiny number calls you to express yourself and help others do the same in the most positive, funny, joyful way possible.

Destiny Number Four

Your destiny is to leave something of value that people can find beneficial in their day-to-day lives.
You’re intent on building something of lasting value; whether that’s a family of your own, a business, or other enterprise.  You’re all about stability and security.  You’re hardworking, can be a pillar of your community, and are immanently trustworthy. In fact, honesty is a big issue for you.
You have the potential to be a stellar marriage or business partner. Your life purpose revolves around being practical and hardworking.  You’re the systems-builder.  You’re the keeper of order and thrive on stability and security.  You might lean toward rigidness or stubbornness.
You could avoid putting down roots, shy away from hard work, and avoid having a family of your own.  Sometimes you can become so self-sacrificing that you become the martyr or a tyrant.  This stems from your need to control and also from your high level of expectation about your own performance—and the performance of others.  Your intentions are always for the greater good, yet that’s not often clear to anyone but you.
The biggest roadblock for the Four Destiny number is a fear of appearing dumb (or let’s say “under informed”) and a fear of taking risks.  A person with a Four Destiny number can wake up one day when they’re older and realize that none of their dreams have been realized because of their inability to step outside their own self-imposed box.
Even so, your Four Destiny number puts you on the path of managing, organizing, and creating a foundation from which to build your life or enterprise.  Don’t let fear of criticism stop you from creating the foundation from which you build your contribution to the world.

Destiny Number Five

Your destiny is to effect change and show people how to live life to the maximum.
The freewheeling Five Destiny number pushes you toward a mission of adaptability, progress, freedom, and embracing the adventure of life.  Freedom is the guiding force in your life.  You thrive on hands-on experience.  You’re task is to develop your constructive use of freedom.
Your purpose is to embrace your sense of fearlessness and follow your curiosity to explore the world and offer your magnetic presence and gifts to those around you. Most often the Five Destiny number is intelligent, philosophical, and spiritually minded. 
You’re a natural salesperson when you’re dealing with something you believe in.  This Destiny number leads you on a roller coaster, where life can feel as though it’s coming at you without a filter.  Your destiny is one of liberation and freedom, no matter how you slice it. 
If you find yourself on the opposite end of the spectrum, you’ll do battle with self-absorption, paranoia, myopia, fearfulness, and emotional paralysis.  Remember there’s truly nothing to fear but fear itself (thank you Franklin D. Roosevelt).
You can move through intimate relationships like you’re changing your socks.  Your effect on other people can be baffling to you, as others might feel tricked or “played” by you, even when you’re simply moving to the beat of your own music.  Your heightened self-centered emotionalism might also try your friendships and intimate relationships. You can swerve over into the “high maintenance” category with great ease, making your love relationships, family interaction, and friendships potentially exasperating to those on the other end of your relationship-pole.  
Move forward, recalibrate yourself, and embrace positive change.  Ultimately, your gift is showing others how to live fearlessly through your example.  The key to your Five Destiny is to work with boundaries and certain parameters or life could be chaotic and out of control.

Destiny Number Six

Your destiny is to provide a nurturing safe ‘nest’ for yourself and your loved ones.
Your mission is to nurture and serve, plain and simple.  Whether it’s your family and loved ones or your business or community, you are a master at creating beauty, harmony, and balance.  Love (shaken and stirred!) with acceptance is key for you as a Six Destiny number. 
You have a polished presentation about you and denote an air of authority in whatever you do.  One of your specialties is damage control, so when things are moving along without trauma or drama, you have a tendency to either sweat it (while you wait for the other shoe to drop, so to speak) or you stir things up in order to have a problem to focus your energies on. Give yourself permission to accept things when life is good and smooth!  They’ll always be another problem to solve down the line.  No need to push it.
You may find yourself in positions of responsibility early on in your life and that sense of responsibility will continue as you mature. You’re a people pleaser, sometimes to your detriment. You need to feel indispensable to others and yet resent the fact that others rely on you too much.  Beware of partnering with someone who is more of a “patient” than a partner because you’ll find yourself becoming an enabler rather than a nurturer.  Remember that your mission is to balance and modulate your sense of responsibility – not overly responsible (meddling, self-righteous, perfectionist) and not overly irresponsible (self-centered, judgmental, controlling).
You’re in your element when you’re expressing gratitude, generosity, acceptance of others, and giving comfort to others in times of need.  You express your life’s purpose through love and service.  While you may tend toward self-righteousness, codependency, or fall into being a martyr, your true calling is in healthy nurturing, compassionate detachment, acceptance of others (get past that perfectionism!), and adding beauty and your beautiful vision to the world.

Destiny Number Seven

Your destiny is to develop trust and faith and find your own answer to the meaning of life.
As a Seven Destiny number, your mission is to seek out information and analyze it.  You’re all about knowledge and spiritual seeking. You dig deep and contemplate heavily.  You’re the perfect researcher and everything always comes back to informing your own sense of inner wisdom.  Your life-long task is to get to know the true you, inside and out.
You need a good deal of private “alone” time.  Your life is instructed by a powerful collision between practical, tangible data and the analysis of it.  Then on the other hand, you’re highly intuitive and your gift—and your task—is to integrate the two (your intellect and your intuition) into a harmonious dance team. 
If you find yourself isolated to the point of withdrawing from the “outside world,” you’re straying from the constructive nature of your Seven Destiny.  The highest and best use of your extraordinary talents are cultivating knowledge, processing it into new ideas or practical usage, and applying your advanced wisdom to the data. 
You’re a person people never really truly know because you’re most often attempting to figure that out yourself!  Watch out for your sharp words, as you can hurt people without realizing it. You have exquisite observation skills and when you have a strong sense of spirituality (however that manifests for you), you’re at your best.  Otherwise, you can fall into superficiality, skepticism, cynicism or depression.  You’re a gentle soul and your destiny is to share your hard-won wisdom with the world.

Destiny Number Eight

Your destiny is to manifest financial security that allows you freedom to make a difference in the world.
An Eight Destiny number is calling for you to gain self-mastery in a profound way.  Your purpose is to achieve and succeed with business and organization—not to mention personal power, control, authority, and above all, ethics.  The Eight is a relentless taskmaster and demands that you understand and employ all your abilities to achieve financial abundance and also to give to others generously.  When you realize that you’re here to achieve power and abundance and then act on that knowledge, your destiny will be fulfilled. Right out of the gate, you have authority issues.
Do you walk into a room as if you own the place (even when you don’t)?  Watch out for becoming an opinionated control-freak. Steer clear of greed, ruthlessness, or being overly opinionated and over-bearing.  Instead, focus on wealth and abundance.  Remember that as you give, you receive. Oddly enough, you can be extremely sentimental and emotional.  It’s your task to learn to be a confident and charismatic person without becoming corrupted or hardened by power and money. 
Remember that you have amazing potential for improving the lives of a lot of people.  You’re a masterful leader;  a powerhouse made for material success.  You can be easily misinterpreted because of your gruff, direct, and opinionated manner.  When you’re thriving financially and giving generously from your heart, you’re doing what you were born to do.  Your word of caution:  don’t allow the pursuit of money to overshadow your ability to build healthy relationships and don’t be so stubborn!  Listen to other peoples’ advice;  they can help you build your empire.
Your flip-side is that you find yourself in the opposite situation.  The first item of business that’ll open the gate for you to achieve your Eight Destiny is to dig deep and tap into your sense of personal empowerment.  And believe me, you’ll be handed a treasure-trove of opportunities to step up or be stepped on
Money and power are a consistent theme in your life one way or the other.  I know people who scoff when they hear they their Destiny number  (or Life Path number) is an Eight (or their significant others’ is an Eight) and comment with great exasperation:  “I can’t even hold down a job!” or “If only it were true that I’m supposed to make a lot of money – I’m on disability”  or “I’ve just never had the lucky break I need – I never get a break.”
If you struggle with money, start with healing and establishing your sense of yourself by establishing and acting on your personal boundaries.  The energy of the Eight isn’t an easy walk in the park.  It demands that you dig into your power and move through obstacles – and there will be many obstacles.  An Eight Destiny number means you have to step it up.

Destiny Number Nine

Your destiny is to achieve a higher state of consciousness and teach others how to achieve theirs.
Your mission is a humanitarian one.  Yours is a spiritual path and you’re here to love unconditionally, however that may manifest in your life. You’re often a hopeless romantic at heart and can set yourself up for disappointment when people don’t measure up to your ideals.   You’re at your optimal when you’re tapping into your creativity, sensitivity, and selflessness.
Beware that others may find that you’re ideas are a little on the cuckoo-side! This Destiny number is a powerful one demanding that you learn to transform and heal (both yourself and others) while letting go of the past freely and without bitterness. 
You may find yourself tripping over into the arena of resentment, of intolerance, or gullibility.  You may have to deal with enmeshment with your family of origin throughout your life. Your task is to let go of family issues fully and completely.  You often feel either resentment toward the family or feel overly responsible for them.
You need to be aware that people respond much more favorably to you when you connect with them through being a compassionate active listener rather than a preacher, lecturer, or proselytizer. Understand that you can have an intimidating quality to you, despite your big heart.  So be careful about how your frame your discussion so that people don’t feel as though you’re patronizing them. 
Often the Nine Destiny number can come off as arrogant or unapproachable.  Realize that everyone thinks you have it all (or have it all together) and so you find it difficult to ask for help or support.  It’s not only okay to ask for help, it’s very healing for you.  Know that your Nine Destiny is a profound journey that offers you multifaceted opportunities to touch the lives of others and heal some of your own deepest wounds.  You’re learning how to both give and receive.

Master Destiny Number Eleven/Two

Your destiny is to heal and transform others through selfless service and artistic creativity.
Your special mission is to recognize and use your creativity, intuition, and healing abilities for the benefit of humanity as a whole.  You can achieve this in a multitude of ways—eliciting an emotional response through dance, music, or art.  Working one-on-one or in groups with various healing modalities.  Or you can write, entertain, teach. 
Remember, you are a double One (leadership, confidence) and yet also a Two (harmony, love).  So you come with some special challenges to fulfill your mission.  A Two Life Path will go out of their way to avoid being in the spotlight.  A Two is most at peace and satisfied when they’re taking the reins behind the scenes.  The Eleven pushes you into the spotlight and this will have some disconcerting effects on you.  You’ll feel as though nothing you do is ever quite enough.  You’ll have a nervous energy that you just can’t control.  You’ll lean toward impatience and criticism (toward yourself and others) and arm-wrestle with self-doubt.
If you’re to embrace this Destiny number, you’ll do battle with a fairly hefty ego, which is ironic because you volley from feeling totally inferior to loftily superior; back and forth.  This number sets you up for inspired leadership and achievement.  Yet you’ll most likely feel as though you’re jumping through rings of fire to get there.
You might even think of yourself as “The Wounded Healer,” because your life provides you with plenty of obstacles to get your footing, embrace your high level of spirituality and intuition, and then act upon your gifts in a solid and practical way that will bring your message to the masses.  This Destiny number requires that you build and use your emotional psychic shield daily or you’ll become so emotionally wounded you won’t have the strength or fortitude to fulfill your mission.

Master Destiny Number  Twenty-Two/Four

Your destiny is to bring forth masterful teaching and inspired practical ideas.

Your mission as a Master number is to execute and build projects that will benefit a wide arena of humankind.  This is a spiritual path (like all the Master numbers) that prods you to step out of the slow, steady security of the number Four and kick it up substantially.  This will be uncomfortable for you until you get the hang of it, because it’s contrary to the pull you have with the rule-following energy of the Four.
You’ll use all the hardworking, step-by-step qualities of the Four while tapping into a higher level of purpose and action.  You’ll learn to take risks and look toward setting higher stakes with your enterprises.  You’re the Master Builder extraordinaire, so look toward building solid foundations to your enterprise with the big picture in front of you at all times. 
You might be challenged with not feeling up to the task or even entitled to do something that might take you into fame and fortune.  You might even cringe at the idea of making a lot of money given the energy of the Four is more about feeling a sense of security, not necessarily manifesting abundance.  It sounds like a small detail, yet mentally this can drag you down.
You’re being pushed toward bringing spiritual practices down to the material, day-to-day world.  Avoid your stubborn streak and a tendency to be a know-it-all.  Gather your supporters around you, set up the systems to make it work, and hand over some of the responsibilities to others.  If you find yourself doing it all yourself, you aren’t living up to your Twenty-Two Destiny. 

Master Destiny Number Thirty-Three

Your destiny is masterful healing and inspired vision.
This is a challenge from the get-go.  If you find yourself with a Thirty-Three Destiny number, your mission (should you choose to accept it! . . . cue Mission Impossible music . . . ) is to be a Master Healer and to bring forth a higher form of love to the world.  Since you have the double Three’s, you also have to do this with joy, fun, and heart-felt communication and expression.
 It’s your calling to teach and show by example the power of love.  You’re meant to serve as a conduit to healing on whatever level you feel most compelled to engage.  The Master number presupposes that you’ll take on leadership positions and the Thirty-Three/Six encompasses visionary goals, truth and beauty, and a nurturing and giving heart.
You might wrestle with feeling over-burdened.  Your tendency will be to be emotionally raw, taking in the wounds of the world.  Even so, you’re still on the path of helping and healing in whatever form you choose.

Expression or Destiny Number
A number derived from all of the letters in your full birth name is called the Expression or Destiny number. This is the number that describes the tasks that you must achieve in this lifetime.
To arrive at your Destiny or Expression number, take each name separately and add up the letter values using the conversion chart below. Reduce each name to a single digit . Then add the results of all of the names to arrive at a total which you then once again reduce to a single digit.


Expression Numbers

Number 1
A number 1 Expression denotes the skilled executive with keen administrative capabilities. You must develop the capacity to be a fine leader, sales executive, or promoter. You have the tools to become an original person with a creative approach to problem solving, and a penchant for initiating action. Someone may have to follow behind you to handle the details, but you know how to get things going and make things happen. You have a good mind and the ability to use it for your advancement. Because of these factors, you have much potential for achievement and financial rewards. Frequently, this expression belongs to one running a business or striving to achieve a level of accomplishment on ones talents and efforts. You have little need for much supervision, preferring to act on your own with little restraint. You are both ambitious and determined. Self-confident and self-reliant must be yours, as you develop a strong unyielding will and the courage of your convictions.
Although you fear loneliness, you want to be left alone. You fear routine and being in a rut. You often jump the gun because you are afraid of being left behind.
The negative attributes of the 1 Expression are egotism and a self-centered approach to life. This is an aggressive number and if it is over-emphasized it is very hard to live with. You do not have to be overly aggressive to fulfill your destiny. The 1 has a natural instinct to dominate and to be the boss; adhering to the concept of being number One.  Again, you do not have to dominate and destroy in order to lead and manage.

Number 2
A number 2 Expression gives you the tools to work very well with other people. Your destiny is in the role of the mediator and the peacemaker. In many ways you are dependent on others and seem to function best in a partnership or in some form of group activity. Modesty runs deep in your nature, and you can work comfortably without recognition of your accomplishments. Often, others get credit for your ideas, and this is of little real concern to your since you are such a willing team player. As you grow in this direction, you become sensitive to the feelings of others, you are ever diplomatic in handling complicated situations. Cooperative, courteous, and considerate, you have the capacity to become an outstanding facilitator.  You know how to organize and handle people. You are a good detail person because you rarely overlook anything. Tactful and friendly, nearly everyone likes you.
The negative 2 personality can be over-sensitive and easily hurt. Too much of this number in your makeup can make you very shy and uncertain. Sometimes the excessive 2 energies makes one apathetic and somewhat indifferent to the job at hand; the ability to handle details is hampered in these cases.

Number 3
An Expression of 3 produces a quest for destiny with words along a variety of lines that may include writing, speaking, singing, acting or teaching; our entertainers, writers, litigators, teachers, salesmen, and composers. You also have the destiny to sell yourself or sell just about any product that comes along. You are imaginative in your presentation, and you may have creative talents in the arts, although these are more likely to be latent. You are an optimistic person that seems ever enthusiastic about life and living. You are friendly, loving and social, and people like you because you are charming and such a good conversationalist. Your ability to communicate may often inspire others.  It is your role in life to inspire and motivate; to raise the spirits of those around you.
The negative side of number 3 Expression is superficiality. You may tend to scatter your forces and simply be too easygoing. It is advisable for the negative 3 to avoid dwelling on trivial matters, especially gossip.

Number 4
Order, service, and management are the cornerstones of the number 4 Expression. Your destiny is to express wonderful organization skills with your ever practical, down-to-earth approach. You are the kind of person who is always willing to work those long, hard hours to push a project through to completion. A patience with detail allows you to become expert in fields such as building, engineering, and all forms of craftsmanship. Your abilities to write and teach may lean toward the more technical and detailed. In the arts, music will likely be your choice. Artistic talents may also appear in such fields as horiculture and floral arrangement, as well. Many skilled physicians and especially surgeons have the 4 Expression.
The positive attitudes of the 4 Expression yield responsibility; you are one who no doubt, fulfills obligations, and is highly systematic and orderly. You are serious and sincere, honest and faithful. It is your role to help and you are required to do a good job at everything you undertake.
If there is too much 4 energies present in your makeup, you may express some of the negative attitudes of the number 4. The obligations that you face may tend to create frustration and feelings of limitation or restriction. You may sometimes find yourself nursing negative attitudes in this regard and these can keep you in a rather low mood. Avoid becoming too rigid, stubborn, dogmatic, and fixed in your opinions. You may have a tendency to develop and hold very strong likes and dislikes, and some of these may border on the classification of prejudice. The negative side of 4 often produces dominant and bossy individuals who use disciplinarian to an excess. These tendencies must be avoided. Finally, like nearly all with 4 Expression, you must keep your eye on the big picture and not get overly wrapped up in detail and routine.

Number 5
The number 5 Expression endows with the wonderful characteristic of multi-talents and versatility. You can do so many things well. The tone of the number 5 is constructive freedom, and in your drive to attain this freedom, you will likely be the master of adaptability and change. You are good at presenting ideas and knowing how to approach people to get what you want. Naturally, this gives you an edge in any sort of selling game and spells easy success when it comes to working with people in most jobs. Your popularity may lead you toward some form of entertainment or amusement. Whatever you do, you are clever, analytical, and a very quick thinker.
If there is too much of the 5 energy in your makeup, you may express some the negative attitudes of the number. Your restless and impatient attitude may keep you from staying with any project for too long. Sometimes you can be rather erratic and scatter yourself and your energies. You have a hard time keeping regular office hours and maintaining any sort of a routine. You tend to react strongly if you sense that your freedom of speech or action is being impaired or restricted in any way. As clever as you are, you may have a tendency to make the same mistakes over and over again because much of your response is glib reaction rather that thoughtful application. You are in a continuous state of flux brought by constantly changing interests.

Number 6
The number 6 Expression provides you a truly outstanding sense of responsibility, love, and balance. The 6 is helpful and ever conscientious, making you quite capable of rectifying and balancing any sort of inharmonious situation. You are a person very much inclined to give help and comfort to those in need. You have a natural penchant for working with the old, the young, the sick, or the underprivileged. Although you may have considerable creative and artistic talents, the chances are that you will devote yourself to an occupation that shows concern for the betterment of the community.
The positive side of the number 6 suggests that you are very loving, friendly, and appreciative of others. You have a depth of understanding that produces much sympathetic, kindness, and generosity. The qualities of the 6 make the finest and most concerned parent and one often deeply involved in domestic activities. Openness and honesty is apparent in your approach to all relationships.
If there is an excess of the number 6 in your makeup, you may exhibit some of the negative traits associated with this number. There may be a tendency for you to be too exacting and demanding of yourself. In this regard, you may at times sacrifice yourself (or your loved ones) for the welfare of others. In some cases, the over zealous 6 has difficulty distinguishing helping from interfering. You may have difficulty expressing your own individuality, because of involvement with responsibilities and causes. Like all with the Expression of the number 6, it's quite likely that you worry much too much.

Number 7
Thought, analysis, introspection, and seclusiveness are all characteristics of the expression number 7. The hallmark of the number 7 is a good mind, and especially good at searching out and finding the truth. You are so very capable of analyzing, judging and discriminating, that very little ever escapes your observation and deep understanding. You are the type of person that can really get involved in a search for wisdom or hidden truths, often becoming an authority on whatever it is your are focusing on. This can easily be of a technical or scientific nature, or it may be religious or occult, it matters very little, you pursue knowledge with the same sort of vigor. You can make a very fine teacher, or because of a natural inclination toward the spiritual, you may become deeply emerged in religious affairs or even psychic explorations. You tend to operate on a rather different wavelength, and many of your friends may not really know you very well.
The positive aspects of the 7 expression are that you can be a true perfectionist in a very positive sense of the word. You are very logical, and usually employ a quite rational approach to most things you do. You can be so rational at times that you almost seem to lack emotion, and when you are faced with an emotional situation, you may have a bit of a problem coping with it. You have excellent capabilities to study and learn really deep and difficult subjects, and to search for hidden fundamentals. At full maturity you are likely to be a very peaceful and poised individual.
If there is an over supply of the number 7 in your makeup, the negative aspects of the number may be apparent. The chief negative of 7 relates to the limited degree of trust that you may have in people. A tendency to be highly introverted can make you a bit on the self-centered side, certainly very much self-contained . Because of this, you are not very adaptable, and you may tend to be overly critical and intolerant. You really like to work alone, at your own pace and in your own way. You neither show or understand emotions very well.

Number 8
Your Expression is represented by the number 8. The 8 Expression is well-equipped in a managerial sense. You have outstanding organizational and administrative capabilities. You have the potential for considerable achievement in business or other powerful positions. You can expect to receive the financial and material rewards. You have the skill and abilities to establish or operate a business with great efficiency. You have good judgment when it comes to money and commercial matters, and you understand how to build and accumulate material wealth. Much of your success (or lack of it) may come due to your ability (or inability) to judge character. With the number 8 Expression, you exercise sound judgment in most of your affairs; you are realistic and practical in your approach to business matters.
The positive 8 Expression produces individuals that are very ambitious and goal-oriented. If the 8 energy is not in excess in your makeup, you will no doubt express these traits to some extent. No one has any more energy that a person with the 8 Expression who has a plan laid and is starting to work. No one has any more self-confidence, either. If you are expressing the positive qualities of 8, you are an outstanding manager because you can plan, initiate, and complete projects; you are very dependable and determined.
As it always happens, there can be too much of a good thing. If you have too much of the 8 energy in your makeup, you may express some of the negative attitudes. A negative 8 can be very rigid and stubborn. Ambition sometimes has a way of becoming over-ambition, and you may express an unreasonable impatience with the lack of progress. If your negative side is showing, you may be too exacting, both of yourself and of others. Sometimes this can even becomes a case of intolerance.
The number 8 is very materialistic and also very desirous of status and power. Neither of these drives are inherently negative unless they are taken to an extreme. You must avoid the tendency to strain after money, material matters, status, or power, to the detriment of the other important factors in your life.

Number 9
The expression that you exhibit is represented bythe number 9. Your talents center in humanistic interests and approaches. You like to help others as you were intended to be the "big brother or big sister" type. You operate best when you follow your feelings and sense of compassion, and allow yourself to be sensitive to the needs of others. You work well with people, and have the potential to inspire. This suggests that you could successfully teach or counsel. Creative ability, imagination and artistic talent (often latent) of the highest order are present in this expression. It's possible that you're not using or developing all of these capabilities at this time. Some of your talents may have been used at an earlier time in your life, and some may still be latent. Be aware of your capabilities, so that you can make use of them at appropriate times.
If you are able to achieve the potential of your natural expression in this life, you are capable of much human understanding and have a lot to give to others. Your personal ambitions are likely to be maintained in a very positive perspective, never losing sight of an interest in people, and a sympathetic, tolerant, broad-minded and compassionate point of view. You are quite idealistic, and disappointed at the lack of perfection in the world. You have a strong awareness of your own feeling as well as those of others. Friendships, affection, and love are extremely important.
Undeveloped or ignored, the negative side of the 9 expression can be very selfish and self-centered. If you do not actively involve yourself with work that benefits others, you may tend to express just the opposite characteristics. It is your role to be very involved with other people and their needs, but it may be difficult for you achieve this role. Aloofness, lack of involvement, and a lack of sensitivity mark the low road of this expression.

Number 11
Your Expression number is 11. The number 11 is the first of the master numbers. It is associated with idealistic concepts and rather spiritual issues. Accordingly, it is a number with potentials that are somewhat more difficult to live up to. You have the capacity to be inspirational, and the ability to lead merely by your own example. An inborn inner strength and awareness can make you an excellent teacher, social worker, philosopher, or advisor. No matter what area of work you pursue, you are very aware and sensitive to the highest sense of your environment. Your intuition is very strong; in fact, many psychic people and those involved in occult studies have the number 11 expression. You possess a good mind with keen analytical ability. Because of this you can probably succeed in most lines of work, however, you will do better and be happier outside of the business world. Oddly enough, even here you generally succeed, owing to your often original and unusual approach. Nonetheless, you are more content working with your ideals, rather than dollars and cents.
The positive aspect of the number 11 expression is an always idealistic attitude. Your thinking is long term, and you are able to grasp the far-reaching effects of actions and plans. You are disappointed by the shortsighted views of many of your contemporaries. You are deeply concerned and supportive of art, music, or of beauty in any form.
The negative attitudes associated with the number 11 expression include a continuous sense of nervous tension; you may be too sensitive and temperamental. You tend to dream a lot and may be more of a dreamer than a doer. Fantasy and reality sometimes become intermingled and you are sometimes very impractical. You tend to want to spread the illumination of your knowledge to others irrespective of their desire or need.

Number 22
Your Expression is represented by the master number, 22. The key word for the number 22 is that of master builder. This is a very hard number to fully live up to because it is capable of such great accomplishment. You no doubt will be extremely capable at whatever work you choose to do in life. You are especially equipped to handle large scale undertakings in the material world. Thus, the reference to master builder. The 22 possesses unique qualities and often very unorthodox approaches to problem solving. You are apt to be a very strong leader, and one who is not afraid to lead in new directions. Your perceptions are well beyond the norm.
When the 22 Expression operates within you in a positive vein, you are endowed with the most practical approach, but this practical or material sense is tempered with an awareness of non-material forces. You are very much the idealist, which the material skills to build and develop for the good of mankind. In a positive 22, the inner strength is clearly visible, and if developed, this strength will possess the charisma to attract a following.
If expressed in a negative manner, the 22 may accentuate unorthodox methods to the point of eccentricity. This negative expression can also be very dominating and overbearing.
