Luce was born Ann Clare Boothe in New York City on March 10, 1903. Her parents, though never married, separated in 1912. Her father, a sophisticated man and brilliant violinist, had trouble holding down jobs as a traveling salesman. Apparently, early in life Luce felt a sense of inferiority about the humble social status of her unwed parents. As we shall see in our next example, her married name more than compensated for any lacks and catapulted her to fame and fortune. She was to become an acclaimed writer, playwright, United States Congresswoman, friend to presidents, and the first woman to be appointed to US ambassador. In the beginning....


DESTINY 7 Trust and Spirituality. Ann Clare Boothe's original Destiny 7, a number which brings challenges as well as special gifts. This Destiny foretells a life in which periods of disappointments lead to spiritual searching (she became a Catholic as an adult after the death of her daughter in a car accident).

BIRTHPATH 8 Power, Money, Authority. No surprise that Ann Clare Boothe succeeded in several fields of endeavor and married into wealth twice. Her 8 Birth Path foretells a life of high status, and endows her with ambition, executive ability, and an indomitable will to succeed.

PERSONALITY AND DAY OF BIRTH 1—Pioneer, writer, leader. These two 1's indicate an ability to successfully direct her forceful personality throughout life. She was known to get almost anything she put her mind to.

ACHIEVEMENT. The diagonal Line of Focus1,5, 9, (on the Grid below with the circles) signifies a strong will, even more strengthened by her pragmatic, ambitious 8 Birth Path.

EMOTIONAL MASTERY. The Line of the Heart (2,5, 8 on the Grid below) highlights an outstanding ability to interact and connect with people. She is naturally equipped to succeed as an actress, playwright, author, congresswoman, and in the social role and duties of her ambassadorship.

COMPELLING KARMA. Despite the individual strength of having two Lines of Focus, they intersect over the number 5. This “cross over the mouth” often signifies either a fear of public criticism or a desire to make her ideas known despite criticism. Her early insecurities about her family background could have been a critical motivator (albeit unconscious) pushing her toward ever more social prominence.

TIMING OF PURPOSE, ACHIEVEMENT, AND LEARNING. The numbers of Luce's 4 Pinnacles and Challenges outline an almost textbook description of her life activities from her writing success, marriage, to her social power and political life.

Name Grid

Line of Focus 1,5,9--Line of Achievement shows potential for success.

Line of Focus 2,5,8--Line of the Heart shows strong people skills, and ability to motivate and charm. “Cross Over the Mouth” indicates possible inhibition, secrecy, or drive to overcome inferiority.

Secondary Line 1, 2, 3--While not a highlighted Line, this Line of Talent and Individual Expression is in perfect balance, indicating a remarkable ability to focus her talents in a productive expression when she puts her mind to it. Now, let's look at what changes when she changes her name after marriage.



DESTINY 19/1 With her married name, Luce now focuses on a life of achievement, power, and recognition, which she fulfilled with by her own efforts as a writer, playwright, congresswoman, and the first United States woman ambassador. Her high status marriage to publishing mogul, Henry Luce (Time, Life, and Fortune magazines) only gave her more access to power and people in high places. A Washington fixture, she moved in the same circles as nine presidents-- from Roosevelt to Reagan.

HEART'S DESIRE 22 gives her an almost unstoppable motivation to influence or change large organizations or systems. This number of the “Master Builder” drives her to promote her political policies and to wield power.

PERSONALITY 6 and HABIT CHALLENGE 6 may account for her becoming more conservative with age. Her often opinionated expression (often a pitfall of a 6 Challenge) in political circles did create setbacks and enmities, most significantly of which lead her to serve only four days of her appointment as ambassador to Brazil in 1959.

REALIZATION (ULTIMATE GOAL) 9 shows the potential for world-wide influence, wealth, and high social status, all of which were hallmarks of her high-profile life.

LINE OF THE DIRECTOR 3,6, 9. Now her Grid fairly pulsates with self-expression and social influence. Note the massive energy of the FIVE 3's radiating out in the Line of the Head (3,6, 9). These 3's show her marked ability to socialize, find creative solutions, and express her ideas as a writer, politician, social leader, and stateswoman. Her position as the wife of arguably the most influential publisher of his time extended the reach of her abilities to communicate through these 3's.

LINE OF INDIVIDUAL TALENT 3,2,1. If the intellectual mastery of the Line of the Head (3, 6, 9) were not enough, Luce also acquired the Line of Talent (centered on the combined arts of the 3's).

LINE OF FAME AND RECOGNITION 3, 5, 7 delivers the final thrust to accelerate her to a high social position. This Line gives the potential to become a world-wide recognized celebrity.

Interestingly, however, the lack of a circle on the number 7 (one of her original karmic numbers) indicates that she may have trouble relating to the common man, or of not being able to reach as wide an audience as she would hope for. In fact, her life and views were controversial and she lived in a highly public—and not always harmonious--fishbowl.

Name changes do affect our focus and direction in life.

The transition from the name Ann Clare Boothe to Clare Boothe Luce is a powerfully clear example of how we might understand the seemingly amazing developments of a person's journey through analyzing the changes in his or her name. While the name gives only a potential for development, the innate energies represent the calling of our ever-unfolding spiritual destiny.

Forecast for 2014



  OF 2014:

Individual number vibrations in 2014:


Two represents a millennial challenge of sustainability requiring on-going adherence to global co-operation over rampant consumerism. (Hmmm. How long will this take?) Two favors use of dialogue and diplomacy over reactive military action. The qualities of Two represent the feminine archetype in human character and values, leaning towards co-existence, peaceful engagement, and co-producing. The natural action of Two tends toward negotiation in search of mutually beneficial outcomes. Two emphasizes the benefits of peace, conservation, recycling, patience, empathy, and balance. The guiding principle of Two is the interconnectedness of all beings and systems.


Zero represents undifferentiated potential. Depending on other influences occurring in a century, yearly challenges are likely to be unprecedented—and to push humankind's consciousness into new realms of awareness. Zero also reminds us of the unlimited potential for humans to circumvent the dangers of ignorance and destructive flaws by rising to new planetary stewardship. Zero presents opportunities to strip away obstacles created by ignorance, out-moded thinking, and sets the stage for pioneering breakthroughs. Zero inspires humankind to think and act from a non-linear, intuitive, or spiritual perspective.


One represents the qualities of action, courage, and advancement. One pushes technological advancements beyond current borders. One is the number of innovation and pioneering discoveries.


Four calls for balancing, restructuring, and building more stability in all systems.  Four brings us back to the importance of basic elements such as, air quality, water resources, agricultural production, forests, and commodities.  Governments may become more restrictive and controlling of their citizens. On the other hand, or citizens may rebel and demand better oversight of public services, long-term good management, reliable banking, and sustainable commerce.

(2014) The Fourteen aspect in the year is one of the Karmic Numbers in numerology.  The Fourteen energy could very possibly stimulate big changes, allowing for unexpectedly quick changes of regime or resolutions of problem areas and conflicts.

Fourteen tends to bring change for new growth, and favors innovative methods—sometimes unexpectedly and without warning. Fourteen reminds us of the laws of karma, and brings opportunities to right imbalances and bring justice. Fourteen brings a chance to increase freedom, reorganization, and progressive practices.  We may see breakthroughs for women living in oppressive circumstances.

In 2014 Fourteen may bring breakthrough discoveries in medicine, or innovations in healing addiction processes. Fourteen may bring more emphasis on prevention and well-being in health care. It's possible that addiction will be highlighted, particularly the destructive aspects of high-level sugar consumption.  Under Fourteen, change is often accompanied by conflict, such as is found in the current controversy and upheaval in the United States about the Affordable Health Care Act.


The Universal Year number is found by adding all the numbers in the year:

2 + 0 + 1 + 4 = 7 Universal Year vibration

 2014 is a Universal 7 Year

Seven is the number representing humanity's spiritual aspirations, sense of purpose and meaning, and need for listening to the wisdom within.  It rules knowledge gained by intuition, psychic ability, wisdom and deep understanding, research into the unknown, development of technology, earth and water, and spiritual development.
Seven brings information to the surface, so look for more scandals, covert actions revealed, or other revelations of deception.  
Seven is the premier number for what happens beneath the surface. The global controversies about surveillance and privacy are likely to become even more of a heated issue. 
In response, we could see new technology offering ways to detect, prevent, or circumvent monitoring. If you wish to listen to a perfect example of seven's focus on technology and secrecy, click on a recent video of a talk by Jacob Applebaum. He is an independent computer security researcher and hacker, and was employed by the University of Washington. He talks from experience about the extent of the NSA's practices and processes of surveillance—and exactly how our own electronic devices are being co-opted and monitored in secret. The video can be seen at While much of his talk is technical, his message is quite riveting and relevant to each and every one of us. You may be quite surprised by some of the things he reveals, especially if you think you have nothing to hide or that your own activities or interests don't merit any particular scrutiny.
Seven is a number of technology, so of course we'll continue to see research in pharmaceutical, military, and technical advancements, especially at the increasingly microscopic and nano-level. DNA research is likely to become an area of focus in medical diagnoses and genetic treatments.
Seven is inner-directed. While some industries (especially medicine, research, technology, and education) will do well, over-all financial growth may slow down for awhile.
Seven resonates at deep natural rhythms, so we will continue to see increases in sudden weather-related breakdowns or volcanic eruptions (especially with the 14 combination in 2014--14 rules unexpected changes, breakdowns, or chaos). Managing water resources is likely to become much more urgent. Contaminated sites or landfill sites may suddenly require immediate remediation. Underground problems or breakdowns of infrastructure are likely to increase.
Seven is the number often associated with simplifying and streamlining, cleansing, and detoxifying. Many of us will feel the urge to downshift, let go of stuff, recycle, or lose excessive weight (in all areas).
Seven searches for spiritual guidance and meaning; we may hear about cults or charismatic leaders. Many of us may decide to return to our spiritual traditions or find new avenues for connecting to meaningful practices.
