Life Numbers for the 2008 Political Candidates

September 2008
Carol Adrienne

Now that we know the full tickets for each party in the coming elections, what could numerology reveal about each candidate?  While I won’t make any predictions as to who will win, I love to compare numbers for each major player, according to their natural talents, destiny, and timing.  

Numerology is based on a person’s full birth name and their birth date.  Roughly speaking, the birth date (all the numbers of month, day, and year added together) shows the person’s natural talents, character, and point of view.  The name (each letter is given a number and added together) indicates destiny and accomplishments.

In the following descriptions, I hope to give an unbiased numerological analysis.  However, I admit that I voted for Hillary, and now support Obama.  The questions I want to consider are:

1. What kind of president would each candidate be?
BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA,  August 4, 1961

Birth Path 2—The Diplomat, Peacemaker, and Constructive Collaborator
Barack Obama was born    August    4,     1961
                                       8     +   4    +   8   =  2 + 0 = 2  The Diplomat
Note the double 8’s—executive ability, good judgment, authority
and the 4—practicality, perseverance, hands-on management

Destiny  19/1  Leadership and Sole Command
Barack           

219132    =  9 Humanitarian, visionary, powerful presence

Hussein
8311595    =  5 Adaptable, progressive, political

Obama
62141        =14/5 Karmic desire for freedom, change, and public service
                  19/1  Karmic Mission for Leadership and Sole Command

 
Note the double 5’s—denoting success through change, public work, and breaking
barriers to freedom with the powerful 9—ability to reach the masses. Further strengthening the leadership theme, the six A’s and S’s in his full name also give him a number 1 Ruling Passion, emphasizing strong mental acuity, innovation, and willingness to take a lead role.  Therefore, on several levels, Obama’s numbers paint a picture of a strong visionary with humanitarian ideals (9’s) with the executive ability to make tough decisions (1’s and 8’s.)

JOHN SIDNEY McCAIN,   August 29, 1936
Birth Path 2—The Diplomat, Peacemaker, and Constructive Collaborator
         August    29,     1936
         8     +    11    +   1   = 2 + 0 =       2 Birth Path   The Diplomat
Note his 8—offering executive ability, good judgment, and authority;
11—Inspiration, and 1—Leadership.  The twice-occurring 2 in his DOB and total
 2 Birth Path could mean an indecisive tendency or sensitivity to personal
criticism.
Destiny  13/4 The Reformer and Builder
John
1685     =    2         Patient, cautious, analytical
Sidney
194557  =   4         Practical, reliable, capable
McCain
433195  =   7         Private, analytical, expert, intuitive, skeptical
              13/4        His over-all Destiny is the karmic number of rebirth,
overcoming challenges, and rebuilding. 


As we know, McCain, survived tough physical, mental, and emotional challenges in his military service. Because of the rather traditional quality of the number 4, McCain’s presidential leadership would likely be somewhat managerial and conservative, emphasizing practical reforms, and the concerns of business.
 
2.  Whose time is it to be president?
Obama    2008       
    Pinnacle           6        Responsibility, service, family
    Challenge         0        Many challenges or unusual and inspired solutions
    Theme of 2008 11        Inspiration, collaboration, partnership, limelight
    Personal Year 2008 Year    4        Building a foundation; working hard 

 

McCain    2008
    Pinnacle            9        Express humanitarian ideals
    Challenge          7            To find wisdom and inner peace
    Theme of 2008   4 and 8      Perseverance and authority    
    Personal Year 2008    2    Germinating new ideas; collaboration, partnership

3.  Who are the running mates?

 The synopsis below shows both candidates have DOB 2 and 8 Destiny.  Both are in a 5 Personal Year—which has certainly brought them major life changes through being thrust on the national stage.


Joseph Robinette Biden
November 20, 1942
DOB                                            2    Relationship-oriented, peace-making
Birth Path (11 + 2 + 7)             11/ 2      Inspirational, congenial, thoughtful   
Destiny     (1 + 9 + 7)                   8          Leadership, compassion, authority
Personal Year    2008                    5         Change, public relations
Theme of 2008                         19/1     Karmic time of leadership


Sarah Louise Heath (Palin)   
February 11, 1964                   
DOB                                             11    Partnership, beauty, sensitivity, limelight
Birth Path (2 + 11 + 2)                     6       Responsible, family-oriented, traditional
Birth Name Destiny (2 + 9 + 6)         8     Congenial, traditional, businesslike
Married Name Destiny (2 + 7)           9     Humanitarian, spiritual, friendly
Personal Year    2008                       5    Changes, out-going, public relations
Theme    of 2008                             8        Power, leadership, authority   

Quick note on Michelle LaVaughn Robinson (Obama)
January 17, 1964
DOB                                          8    Power, authority, law
Birth Path (1 + 8 + 2)                 11    Independence, power, partnership, limelight
Birth Name Destiny (4 + 5 + 7)   16/7     To bring spiritual and material benefit; trust
Married Name Destiny (4 + 5)        9    Humanitarian, global interests, power
Personal Year    2008                    1    Beginning of new nine-year cycle
Theme of 2008                             7      Need to trust intuition; find inner quiet

In doing this analysis I was surprised to find that the number 2 appears in each life. Sarah Palin has an 11 DOB, and Barack Obama, John McCain, Joe Biden, and Michelle Obama all have the Master Number 11 Birth Path—each inspirational for different reasons.

Since we have now entered the 2 Millennium (2000—2999,) it makes sense we start to see frequent indicators of the peace-loving 2 at work, bringing opportunities for harmony, diplomatic measures, and international cooperation.

Namaste and Happy September,
Carol Adrienne

7 Techniques for Creating Your Own Luck

August 2008
Carol Adrienne, Ph.D.

“Luck is a matter of preparation meeting opportunity.”
Oprah Winfrey

“You must always be open to your luck.
You cannot force it, but you can recognize it.”

Henry Moore



Most of us believe that luck plays a large part in shaping our lives. In recent years, the term synchronicity has often replaced the word luck, especially when talking about an unlikely occurrence that seems to arise at just the perfect moment. 

The word synchronicity--as is well known--was coined by Swiss psychologist, C.G. Jung.  According to Jung, synchronicity differs from the idea of mere accident or random luck in that synchronicity, while acausal, still seems to carry a purposeful weight. That is, we cannot cause synchronicity to happen; nevertheless its, often astounding, perfection appears to be targeted for our benefit. 

For example, years ago I was in the process of developing my intuitive counseling practice.  In those days, I was in the habit of attending various networking meetings.  At one breakfast meeting, I had placed my purse on a chair at the table to hold my seat while I got my food.  When I came back, someone had moved my purse to a chair at the end of the table.  I was slightly disgruntled, but sat there anyway.  As it turned out, that position at the table allowed me to meet a woman who was exactly the right person I needed to meet.  She was part of several amazing synchronicities that put me in touch with an important teacher (Arnold Patent,) whose ideas completely changed the way I would develop my practice.

We may not always recognize the purpose or deeper meaning of an important event, such as meeting the person we eventually marry, or running into an old friend whom we were just thinking about.  In my mind, synchronicity seems to be the dynamic engineering force in Law of Attraction.  When we are intensely focused on an idea, need, or desire, we are setting forth a strong energy.  This activating force—we can call it an intention—magnetizes a matching (and seemingly synchronistic) response, answer, or opportunity according to Law of Attraction. 

A former client of mine, LM, was having a difficult time at work when her boss suddenly took ill.  An avalanche of duties fell on LM and she was literally freaking out and wondering how she could create a better career for herself. 

One day during this ultra-stressful period, a former co-worker called LM to talk to her about what to do with his elderly aunt, who was having health and financial problems.  He knew LM had gone through a similar situation and he thought she would be a good person to advise him.  After their conversation, he was so impressed with her range of knowledge, that he said, “You should do this for a living.”  Well, the light bulb definitely went on for LM in that moment.  She suddenly realized that working with elder care was the closest thing to a passion that she had.  Soon after this, LM made a transition to becoming a retirement specialist, and today is happily self-employed.  Circumstance, an intervening angel (her friend who called about his aunt) and her acknowledgment of her true interests created LM’s change of luck.

7 Keys to Creating Your Own Luck


Know yourself.  Admit what really turns you on.  Acknowledge your talent, skills, and experience as valuable indicators of your true life purpose.

Be clear and specific about asking for what you want
. Too often, we simply complain without thinking about what would really make a positive difference in our lives.  Do we need more personal time?  An extra $275 a month (a specific amount is more do-able.) Do we need to commute less? Go back to school?  Write one page of that novel? Simplify our life?

Identify the specific nature of your fears about change
. Instead of merely thinking or saying such things as, “I’m afraid I won’t make money at what I love to do” think it through.  Sometimes even fifteen minutes can give you a rough business plan in terms of facing the facts of what you absolutely need to live on, what kind of investment money you would need for start-up, and your possible income based on a conservative estimate of your market. 

If, for example, you dream of becoming an author or public speaker, but are frozen in fear of not knowing what to do first, start with finding an interest that fascinates you.  Develop a little expertise.  What would you tell someone who knew nothing about your subject?  The point is to get involved with some small part of your dream. Don’t let vague fears of not looking good enough or making a fatal mistake keep you from taking the first step.  Don’t try to “overcome” your fear.  Instead, focus on being prepared.  Luck will find you.

Learn the difference between ego and intuition
.  We often get confused about whether a fear is a rational reason not to do something.  Of course, some fears may be pointing out real issues.  However, most of the time, fear is connected with the part of us that wants to avoid risk or failure—which is our ego.  To keep us “safe and secure” the ego is brilliant at creating conflicts in our mind—making us think in circles.  Not surprisingly, we end up going nowhere.  The ego generally makes us feel out of balance, frustrated, or tormented by a sense of urgency, but blind to the potential right in front of us.

The intuition, on the other hand, speaks quietly with a single idea.  “It’s time to move.”  Or “I want to check out job listings today.” Or “It’s time to finish the project.” “I could move to Arizona.”

Listening to the intuition may take you out of your comfort zone, but something inside you knows that this new step is probably going to be a positive evolution for your life. 

Intuition, therefore, is clear, quiet, and persevering (rather than urgent.)  It presents one thought at a time.  Its suggestions are mysteriously connected to your evolution, even though it may not immediately appear so.  Listening to your intuition—and taking even a small action—usually brings lucky breaks within a short time.

Increase positive experiences.
  Be happy.  The happier you are, the better life seems-- and the better luck you will have.  Too often we think we cannot be happy until we find our purpose, get married, get divorced, write a book, or have a child.  In the meantime, we miss precious moments that occur each day.  Happiness begets happiness. Tip: Build a “good luck bank” by keeping a list of even the tiniest bits of good luck that happen to you each day for seven days. This is a fun way to increase your positive focus.

Express gratitude daily for what you already have
.  Gratitude is a very close vibration to the frequency of love, and love is the frequency of the Universe.  Get into a lucky flow by noticing how much you already have.  No matter what is going on in your life, there is something to be grateful for.  The practice of gratitude is free and always available.

Participate with what’s in front of you.  Act when the time feels right.  You may think nothing much is happening in your life or that things are moving too slowly.  I suggest that if you are in a job you don’t like very much, become better at it.  Throw yourself into it and do the best job you can.  See what happens.  You will increase positive energy, and you may be astonished at how luck appears out of nowhere.  You may even decide that your job is not so bad after all!

Participating with life means paying attention to everything, looking for clues, putting two-and-two together, noticing patterns, and taking action when it feels right (instead of losing energy by complaining, resisting, and procrastinating.)

Namaste and Happy August,

Carol Adrienne

Check Your Numbers

July, 2008
Carol Adrienne, Ph.D.

Whenever we are not bogged down in daily details, our ever-active minds often feel the need to haul out the big, big ideas.  It seems we can’t help trying to figure out why things happen.  We struggle with core questions, such as, Who am I?  Or, What is going on?

When confronted with these questions--being a numerologist--I first look for the clues and patterns hidden in names and birth dates.  After that consideration, the next step is to begin to notice how we tend to think about the world, and what motivates us to make the choices we do.  If we do things motivated by fear or insecurity, the result often matches that initial perspective.

A third consideration in looking for answers (if you are open to the idea) is probing for the reason we took birth in this lifetime.  Perhaps we wanted to work on something specific, such as completing a relationship with someone we knew from another lifetime, developing a talent, or experiencing a completely different life than we previously had. Sometimes there is no particular plan or reason at all.  We are free to develop our path or “dharma” as we will, hopefully not adding any karmic loads!
   
Using numerology I will try to make some points for the reader who sent me the following question.  To provide anonymity, I will use initials only for her birth name.

Disappointment in Marriage

Hi Carol,
Wondering if you can provide insight through a short numerological profile regarding my disappointment in marriages.  At the age of 43, I have been married three times.  It is disheartening to even think about legalizing a formal commitment.  I have been raised traditionally and followed that path, but I have been disappointed in the aftermath.

I have learned many lessons through my marriages, the shortest being six months and the others seven years and ten years.  I have two daughters from the ten-year marriage.  I am going with a wonderful, loving, kind man who I know wants to marry me in the future.  I am hesitant and wonder if numerology can provide some understanding. My birth name:  C L S (born 7-23-1964).

Dear Hesitant,

You May Have some Karma to Finish
The first thing I notice about your chart is that you have three of the four numbers designated in numerology as “karmic numbers.”  These numbers appear in your three most influential positions. First is your Birth Path number 14/5 (natural tendencies from your birth date total)—the explorer and change-seeker.  Briefly, the 14/5 indicates that you chose (before birth) to be a little different in your lifestyle, choices, or thinking.  Usually a Birth Path 14/5 is not prone to fit into tight-fitting traditional roles in marriage or family.  Fourteen can attract strong personalities, conflicts, or even problems with physical addictions.

Your second karmic number—13/4—is found in your Destiny, which is calculated from your birth name.  It describes your type of life circumstances, lessons, and accomplishments. The practical (and transformative) 13/4 life lesson tends to involve questions about when to persevere and when to move on (i.e., in marriage or other situations.)  It’s not unlikely that you may have had a karmic debt that you wanted to repay to each of your three husbands!  Having the energetic and curious 5 Day of Birth and 5 Birth Path may have given you the idea (as you planned this lifetime) that you could do a lot of karma clearing in one lifetime.  It may seem easier to do in the spiritual plane, than it is once we are dealing with material reality!

Finding a Balance with Commitment and Freedom
Another pattern I see in your name makes me wonder about the possibility that, in a recent previous lifetime, you might have been a charismatic figure (possibly an actor) who had many love affairs, but never settled down.  I know this may sound weird, but your combination of the 5 Birth Path with the 4 Destiny seems to indicate that you want to explore the duality of  “how to maintain your sense of uniqueness—the 14/5—and still have marriage and security—the 13/4.”  I hope this makes sense to you!

Two numbers are missing from your birth name.  They are 6 (marriage and divorce; family; responsibility; teaching) and 4 (discipline; determination; practicality.)  Missing numbers often pinpoint the very places we will learn the most for this lifetime, and in your case you have a 4 Destiny, making it clear that you must try and try again.  However, one caveat.  Do you find a pattern in your nature of being attracted to men whom you think you must encourage and support or even “rescue?”  You will be fine as along as you find a man who can stand on his own two feet, while you pursue your interests as well and not lose yourself!

Everything Happens for a Reason
I suggest that you will feel more spiritually healed as you become less self-critical in thinking so harshly about your past relationships.  Your comment about being disheartened about making a legal and formal commitment sounds like you are a little shut down now in your heart!  With your untraditional 14/5 Birth Path, maybe you need to let go of formalities and just be who you are in the great relationship you now have!  Sometimes two lovely people forget how much they like each other as they get enmeshed in this “third entity” called marriage. 

That was Then, This is Now
For you, the period from age forty-one to forty-nine--which is where you are now--is ruled by the number 1.  This nine-year period is meant to encourage you to be independent, self-confident, and find a new (positive) way of looking at life.  Any partnership now must not be co-dependent, but lovingly interdependent as you both support the growth of each other.  From age 50 onwards, you learn to love unconditionally and have many opportunities for joy, travel, and exploring the world.  This year of 2008 is a 4 Personal Year for you, which creates opportunities to develop your 4 Destiny!

For those interested in learning more about reincarnation and the reasons we take birth as reported by those in regression studies, I highly recommend, Hans TenDam’s book, Exploring Reincarnation (his website is http://www.tasso.nl) as well as Dr. Michael Newton’s book, Journey of Souls.  Other books by Edith Fiore, Ph.D., and Dr. Brian Weiss, and Carol Bowman are also fascinating studies in this field.

Karmic numbers

13/4 indicates a desire to complete karma with someone and transform that unresolved energy. Life can bring radical reversals both good and challenging. Strong desire to meet one’s obligations and bring balance despite hardships.

14/5 indicates a strong need for freedom and resistance to loss of control. Life can involve feelings of restlessness, physical issues; affairs; obsessions, abrupt changes, or a desire to resist being trapped.

16/7 indicates lessons involving betrayal, unexpected loss, and learning to trust one’s intuition. Life can bring disappointment, skepticism; spiritual transformation.

19/1 indicates possible past lives in which suffering resulted from being an unpopular leader, heretical, socially radical, or standing out from the crowd. A feeling of anxiety about how others see you or self-doubt can hold you back from developing new ideas because of an irrational fear of repercussion.

*** 

Post Script
Last month we did an analysis for HB (see the May, 2008 column.)  Her question concerned a lack of confidence in her choice to study for a masters in development studies (to fulfill a desire to do good in the world.) She was finding it hard to keep motivated. She responds with this update:

Your answer was quite astonishing. While I've looked vaguely into numerology before, you brought the interaction between numbers to life.  I was amazed at how much I related to your descriptions.

Those numbers certainly explained the subconscious drive that has really propelled me to explore the world, even when this option didn't seem the logical choice to friends and family, and sometimes myself. The idea of 'settling down' has never held any desire for me at all, even when this has meant that I've left partners and possessions. And the numbers explained the timing of my return to university when I was 28, when after months, possibly years, of inquiring about subjects I finally found development studies.

Uncannily, in the time between sending the email question and receiving your response, I thought long and hard about my motivations, realizing that it was my approach to study that was bringing me down. By looking at the course from another perspective--instead of seeing the boring content-- I looked for a job that looked inspiring.  I decided that disaster relief was what interested me. I asked everyone what they thought of the idea and received unanimous support that this was 'perfect for you!' And then I read your answer suggesting something 'edgy and for the benefit of others'. Everything seems to fit.

Suddenly, the study has become more inspirational.  Instead of getting bogged down in the abstract notion of long-term benefit from study, I found motivation in a more visible and interesting goal.  So, thank you very much. Your answer clarified the decisions I've been making recently, while adding a little more detail, which is really encouraging. I'll certainly be keeping my fingers crossed that the positive outcomes you saw in other areas of life also eventuate!


Happy July

Career Karma

June, 2008                           
Carol Adrienne, Ph.D.

I recently received some emails about the old question of passion/finances.  Whether to work for love or money. For example, Debra writes,

 

I was born January 1, 1954.  I find myself at a crossroads in which I no longer want to spend 8 or 9 hours a day at tasks that pay well, but hold no real interest for me.  I would like to start a home-based business, but the issue is in finding what stimulates me enough to energize a business around.  I have many interests with a Master's in Fine Art and twenty years of writing experience.  I get my greatest pleasure from the great outdoors, but I don't feel any great passion for going back to school to say, to get training in Naturalism or Botany.  I have just accepted a position in a new city, but worry I'm going into something that pays well, yet may not stimulate my imagination.


Dear Debra,
Well, well, well.  Look at how your month, day, and year each add up to number 1! In numerological terms, the date January 1, 1954 breaks down to 1 + 1 + 1 = 3.Birth Path.  You are what we call an “Old Soul” This birth date gives you a zero Challenge throughout your entire life.  The zero Challenge could create lots of different kinds of problems (that meant to open up your spiritual awareness,) or none that stands out. It sounds like you get good jobs that pay well, but want something more engaging.  Look at it this way--those jobs create enough of a cushion to allow you to explore sidelines.  Store up your reserves and don’t waste the chance to buy a little time later on.

The strong emphasis on the number 1 gives you the feeling that you should be creating a unique and independent career.  However, the timing influence of each Pinnacle has been a 2—emphasizing cooperation (with the necessities within each situation you find yourself) partnership (developing relationships—even though you are still single) and patience (when will these boring jobs end!) 

Your 3 Birth Path indicates a love of learning and a great curiosity.  However, your Three believes that you can only motivate if you are REALLY interested in something passionately, and so you keep waiting for the lightning to strike.  Hmmm.

This year, 2008, is a 3 Personal Year, the same vibration as your 3 Birth Path.  I’d suggest that you take the well-paying jobs, and commit to developing a creative interest on the side.  Since you don’t yet have a compelling topic around which to build a home-based business, stay with the jobs, but keep investigating new things.  How about starting a blog or website page where people like yourself can share ideas about home-based businesses?  Don’t give up your day job yet! (the website you sent www.indigenousexchange.com by the way is very “old soul” in vibration!)

And another email comes from H A, B. (for privacy I am using only initials)

Dear Carol,
My name is H. A. B. and my birth date is September 23, 1975.  I'm writing due to a lack of confidence that I'm following the right path. I feel as though my life up to now has been a maze. I've traveled all over the world, and worked all over the place doing strange jobs, giving me heaps of experiences, if no wealth! Now I'm back studying for a master’s in development studies- which seems a natural choice as I'd like to 'do good' in the world.
 
However, I'm finding it hard to keep motivated, even though this is what I thought I really wanted to do. It just seems as though life is lacking balance, as I've been single forever, and while I'm not as interested in money as compared to friends, my life seems so basic.  I feel I've achieved nothing up to this point; now everything just seems like emotionless hard work. I guess my question is, When am I going to get out of this 'rut' and have a more rounded life?

 
Dear Traveler,

Below is a “thumbnail sketch” from a mini-chart I made for you.  The theme of “freedom” and “following your bliss” repeats through your numbers, so yes, you acted out your need for travel to quench your curiosity.  Bravo!  Your Challenge from 28 to 36 is to channel your energy into helping others in a way that matters to you.  Your degree in development studies may be the rational choice to give you credentials, but for you, the juice is always in talking with the people and connecting in a deep way. You want to go direct.  Long term plans don’t seem that real to you, so motivation dwindles without a clear image to magnetize you forward.

You are destined to be a communicator, with a strong humanitarian and cultural streak.  However, you like things to be easy and synchronistic—not heavy and labored. You won’t be motivated until you are doing something unique, a little edgy, and for the benefit of others.  Read your thumbnail sketch below, and see what your intuition tells you.


First Name                     11/2  The Inspirer--likes film, spirituality, poetic expression
Middle Name                   11/2  The Inspirer--ditto
Last Name                      8  Problem Solver—family trait
Day of Birth                    5  Adventurer (lover of freedom and change)
Birth Path Tendencies       9  Humanitarian (imaginative, generous, open-minded)
Destiny                          3 Creative (communication, young people, culture)
Ultimate Goal                  3 Creative (joy through helping others find happiness)
Heart’s Desire                 1 Leadership (independent, courageous, and innovative)
 
Period between     Birth and age 27—5—Exploration and changing circumstances

                          (you pursued your curiosity.)
                          Age 28 to 36—9—Your Birth Path Number is also 9, so this is your time.                              Focus tends to be on non-profit, education, health, spirituality

From age 30 to 44 you have a strong influence of the number 1, which is your Heart’s Desire number.  This is the time to work on breaking new ground, developing self-confidence, and finding your own voice (which is what interests you.)

Love and marriage could appear in the next twelve or fifteen months, if you are open to it. Choices are given to you, and it may even be your best marriage prospects come to you again around age 39/40.  You have a wonderful way with people, and help raise positive energy by your optimism and good humor. You will get out of your rut when you stop thinking you are in one! 

Email number three is from T.H.S. birth date January 11, 1980.

 

I have been changing a couple of jobs within the first 4 years into my careers.
All of it left me feeling that either the jobs have no prospects or those that
supposedly have do not seem to fit with me. I would like to know if marketing
is a better suited path for me according to my numerology of 3 (which I enjoy the
dynamism) or should I continue the path to a private banker? Would I be too
bored by the life of a private banker?


Dear Puzzled Possible Private Banker,

You are correct in that you have a creative and spontaneous 3 Birth path.  However your Heart’s Desire is a practical and reliable 4.  Not only that, your ultimate goal for your life is also 4—the lesson of stability and good management.  Evidently, before birth you planned a life that would be a little more practical this time. 

I can’t prove this of course, but I get the impression from your numbers (especially your karmic Destiny number 19/1) that in a previous lifetime you might have been a little bit of a gambler or a genius at thinking up get-rich-quick schemes. Nineteen sometimes indicates a painful lesson learned.  It’s likely that the cause of your suffering had something to do about trusting others or not being careful enough.

I would say that it’s no accident you are considering the life of a banker.  Yes, it might not be exciting, but it would offer a chance to learn good judgment around people and money. After the age of fifty-two, you stand a good chance to own your own business.  Another possibility is that you might come up with a very distinctive method or practice that brings money and recognition. Be careful not to align yourself with anyone who is not on the up-and-up between the ages of 34 and 42.  Banking might be a way to help others achieve good works (part of your ultimate goal of the master number 22/4.)  The key is to be develop good communication skills.

Happy Summer Days,
Carol Adrienne

What Is My Purpose and Passion?

May, 2008                   
Carol Adrienne, Ph.D.

The email for this month’s column is from a woman named Julie, who is turning forty-four today. (I just noticed that today, April 29,th,  is her birthday, so I guess synchronicity is working for us.)  I chose Julie’s question because it is such a universal one—our desire to know ourselves and live in a way that feels aligned with what we came here to do.  Of course, that idea of “what we came here to do” is not always lived out through what we do for a living.  But let’s see what we can see.  Here is her full email (I’ve made her birth name anonymous to protect her privacy.)
 

My birth name is J A L, and my birthday is April 29, 1964. For the past several years my big question has been, ‘What is my life’s purpose, my passion?’ I have explored this question in many ways such as reading, yoga, meditation, talking with like-minded souls and lots of silent contemplation. The message I get repeatedly is, ‘Now is not the time.’

Try as I may to accept that now is not the time for my question to be answered; it feels like I am on one side of a brick wall, and the answer is on the other side. The bricks are only four inches wide, but the wall is hundreds of feet tall and miles long. The answer is so close but yet so far. My question is this: what do my numbers tell you and how does one keep the faith that the answers will come in due time?

Dear Julie,
Thanks for your great question and for sending your birth name and birth date, so that we can first look at what your numerological influences might reveal.  One suggestion I have before we get to the numerology is this.  I notice that you are very imaginative in describing the size and shape of your brick wall (one of your talents with your 3 Destiny, as we shall see below, is a very good imagination—a talent for art, writing, speaking.)  Since creativity and imagination are actually starting to expand in your life now, I would suggest you do some more work on imagining a door through that wall you have created in your mind.  Do a visualization, and ask for a symbol representing your life purpose to be shown to you.  You can actually dialogue with that symbol when in the meditative state.  Keep talking to it, over time, but do not dwell on this.  Just a reminder:Your purpose has a lot to do with what you love.

Now let’s hear what numerology has to say about your purpose.

For those new to numerology, it’s a very old system that looks at the qualities inherent in our name at birth and our birthdate.  There are certain core points that most numerologists look for.  For example, the four major points I consider first are: Birth Path: is found by adding together all the numbers in the total birth date.  Birth Path  is considered  what you have to offer--your natural talents and life perspective.  Destiny:  the letters of the name are converted to numbers, and their values totaled. The Destiny number is your path of success, life tasks to develop, and provides the environment for expression.  Heart’s Desire:  is found by adding together all the values of the vowels in the name.  The Heart’s Desire number describes what is very important to you.  Realization: Birth Path number + Destiny number describes one’s ultimate goal and possible achievement if the life is positively developed.

In the profile below I have added a few more factors to help reveal Julie’s personality, focus, lessons, and timing.  Since one of my professional charts is about thirty pages long, for ease of explanation, I have created a synopsis (with key words only) of Julie’s numerology profile.  If we just consider the key ideas for each of the numerology positions, what pattern emerges?

Day of Birth (2 + 9)  =  11/2     The Inspirer
Interest or talent for metaphysics, spirituality, bringing a message to others,
counseling, art, women’s issues, and public speaking.

Birth Path (4+29+1964) = 8        The Executive/Problem-solver
Ability to take charge, but likes to work in partnership with a trusted colleague or
friend; needs clear direction before moving ahead; excels in managing and producing; works very hard if she feels that her work is appreciated.

Destiny        = 3        Creativity, Communication, Self-expression
Will need to develop good people and language skills.  Has the ability to get
people excited about something; works best in a friendly, creative environment.  May take a variety of “day- jobs” in order to have time for other interests. Needs to carry creative ideas to fruition. Could work in the arts, advertising, children’s clothing and toy store, story-telling, public-speaking, free-lance writing.

Heart’s Desire        = 5        Desire for Freedom, Flexibility, and Adventure
nterested in the new, rather than the traditional, but is skeptical of the untried.
Very curious, and has a strong need for variety and not being in a 9 to 5 schedule, despite strong organizational abilities (8 Birth Path.) Likes to keep her options open whenever possible. Could be distracted by “too many choices,” but will be successful in surprising areas.  Synchronicity could play a strong role in job selection—leading to the development of a career after the age of forty-seven.

Habit Challenge    = 9        Active Imagination, Tendency to Let Emotions Rule

Karmic Lesson    = 2        Patience; Ability to Listen: Thoroughness with
Details; Balance in Romantic Relationships


Ultimate Realization    = 11/2        Providing Inspiration; Relationship and Love.
Since the Realization is the same as the Day of Birth (11/2,) there is a good chance that your strengths of relating to people to support, listen, and guide—in whatever job or career you find—will be the keys to your success.   

Considering another aspect of your configuration, I would say that you may have had a prominent lifetime where you were known for your creative ideas, and your words carried weight in the world.  It’s possible that you may have been too focused on your career and neglected the area of relationship.  This lifetime might be a way to balance that previous lifetime.

I know this might sound radical because of the idea of past lifetimes, but that is what my intuition says from looking at the pattern of your chart. You also have the “mark of the Old Soul,” a zero Challenge from age 29 to 37, where you may have been working out some difficult karmic “old business.” Old Souls love thinking about deeper issues like the purpose of their life, by the way!  Often, they have a lot of lee-way in choices for the current lifetime—especially since you also have that very flexible and creative 3 Destiny. 

Regarding your last question, how does one keep the faith that the answers will come in due time? Well, patience and listening is your karmic lesson, so that may be one way to keep track of the subtle guidance you are no doubt receiving.

Just for the record, in April of 2009, you will enter a ten-year span of 3 Essences which match exactly your 3 Destiny.  I would suggest you listen to and follow your intuition very carefully.

The question for you is what do you love the most?  Find a way to get more of that into your life.  The purpose of your current life has a lot to do with giving you the freedom to choose what you want to do—it’s not locked in.  You are in a 19/1 Pinnacle from age 38 to 46, which indicates the necessity for stepping forward with your own original ideas and let go of false humility or fear of what others will think.  Life becomes very secure and settled after age forty-seven, and the emphasis is on counseling, teaching, home, family, and anything to do with helping others.   

If any of you reading this column has an intuition for Julie, feel free to email your comments to her at  jevoli@tampabay.rr.com..

Happy Spring and Happy May to all You Mothers and Grandmothers!
Carol Adrienne


Post Script:  Julie read the above column today before posting.  In answer to my question about her current career, she replied: "I am currently working as the program manager in an agency providing child services. I have a large staff, and wear several hats to keep many balls in the air at once."  Julie says, that while she has great respect for her current situation and is doing well, she is searching for something that fires a deeper passion.
