"When the great Tao is forgotten,
goodness and piety appear.

When the body’s intelligence declines,
cleverness and knowledge step forth.

When there is no peace in the family,
filial piety begins.

When the country falls into chaos,
patriotism is born."

Lao Tzu - (Tao Te Ching, chapter 18, translation by Stephen Mitchell)

My Numerology Reading

Your Life Path Number is 7
Your Life Path Number represents the path you should take through life and the talents and skills you have to make your journey a rewarding one.

The Life Path of a 7 is to find universal truths and pursue inner-knowledge. You will explore the mysteries of life and uncover the true meaning of existence. Much of your time will be spent alone, which you will welcome, because isolation will provide you with the time and quiet to pursue knowledge. As your wisdom grows, people will seek you out with the hope you will share your knowledge.
top

Your Life Destiny Number is 11
Your Destiny Number sheds light on those things you must accomplish in your life to be fulfilled.

You have the Master Number 11 as your Life Destiny Number. Master Numbers indicate nearly complete or complete development of the traits associated with the number they would reduce to. This relation is usually expressed by writing the Master Number and the number it reduces to together. Master Number 11 is often written 11/2.
Freedom and responsibility come with having a Master Number. You have the freedom to choose whether to allow your Master Number traits to express themselves or not. If you opt to act responsibly and use your lofty powers, you will find your reward is in the choice itself. If you choose to ignore your talents, you may find yourself taking more than one step back. You may incur a Karmic Debt.
11’s Destiny is to discover spiritual truths so they may inspire and bring joy to others by sharing their knowledge. An 11 Destiny is carried by “old souls” with a deep spiritual connection to the workings of the universe. They are meant to work for the good of all of us—to transform the lives of others for the better.

Your Soul Number is 1
Your Soul Number describes your deepest desires and dreams and the person you truly want to be.

Those with the number 1 as their soul number are fiercely independent and have a desire to lead others. With the exception of their own, they are not team players. Nor do they take orders well.
top

Your Personality Number is 1
Your Personality Number reveals the “external you”—the personality traits others will know you by.

As is fitting with the number 1’s prime directive to lead, those with a 1 personality number have the qualities of a natural born leader. They are the alphas of the pack and stand out in any group. They are confident, self-reliant and courageous. They are also blessed with a mind capable of formulating innovative solutions to old and new problems alike. As long as the 1 personality does not become overbearing and dogmatic, they should always find themselves in the position for which they were born: the head of the pack.
top

Your Maturity Number is 9
Your Maturity Number reveals the person you will come to be—your true self.

Persons with a 9 Maturity Number do not always have an easy path before them. They must learn to balance their love for humanity with their own needs. Throughout your life you will heal and enlighten those around you. In your later years you will have mastered your healing techniques and learned to apply your compassion for others effectively. You will be able to look upon your life and see that you have been a great benefit to most who have had the good fortune to know you.
top

Your Balance Number is 5
As long as your life is on an even or uplifting keel balance numbers are relatively dormant. However, in those times when your life is out of order your Balance Number can become central to resolving the turmoil you are experiencing. Your Balance Number reflects the traits you need to bring to the forefront in order the get through difficult periods with the least amount of damage or time wasted on negative influences.

A 5 Balance Number indicates a need for focus during times of strife. Face your problems with an unwavering single-mindedness to overcome them. Do not procrastinate when dealing with issues. Not only will they not just disappear, but there is a good chance your problems will increase in severity. This is not a time to try and find solace in substitutes. Don?t go on binges of any kind. Focus and act!
