Tom Clancy, author The above Grid for the abbreviated pen name of Tom Clancy is an excellent illustration of the power acquired through taking a secondary name. The shortened name, Tom Clancy, which made him famous as a best-selling author, becomes even stronger, numerology-wise, than his full original name, Thomas Leo Clancy (Jr.) Line of Talent, 1,2,3 For example, the name Tom Clancy gives him two Lines of Focus. The first one is the vertical Line of Talent—1,2,3. This Line shows a heavy number of 3's, which indicates a person with exceptional ability to express creative ideas through combined media. Line of Fame, 3,5,7 The second line of focus is the diagonal Line of Fame—3,5,7, indicating potential for becoming well-known. Synergy Together, these two energy vectors contain enormous potential for fame and recognition, most likely from developing creative ideas (3's)--which Clancy did, not only through novels, but also through games, a television mini-series, and several hugely popular feature films. And there's more...! As if these two Lines of Focus were not enough to indicate a potential for success, Clancy's Grid also shows perfect balance in two more Lines. He has perfect balance (1 each of 1,4,7) in The Line of Foundation. This Line highlights ideas and innovation (1), practical knowledge(4), and technical expertise (especially naval history (7)). It was his grasp of technical details and realism that captured the imagination of readers, game-players, and film-goers. Finally, this stupendous Grid shows a second line with perfect balance in The Line of the General (4,5,6)! No coincidence that his artistic themes centered on military science.

6 PINNACLE (age 44 to 52) —A period of responsibility and compromise; working with groups and factions.

0 Challenge (age 44 to 52)---Great challenges from all sides—personal karmic influences can be cleared.

4 PERSONAL YEAR in 2008: When Obama was elected in 2008, his 4 Personal Year highlighted planning, practicality, solidity, stability, and grassroots campaigning.

38/11/2 ESSENCE IN 2008 : The Master Number 11/2 put him in the limelight as the Inspirer, and was the same number as his 2 Destiny, boosting chances of success.

8 PERSONAL YEAR in 2012 : Emphasizes continuing issues of exerting executive ability; power struggles; large range of financial and regulatory issues.

13/4 ESSENCE in 2012: Time of karmic stresses related to tight or unfavorable economic conditions; a time requiring caution, practicality, possible change of strategy, and struggle to maintain position.

9 PERSONAL YEAR in 2013: End of 9-year cycle; completion; expansion; international relations/conflict strong emotional issues.

25/7 ESSENCE IN 2013: Co-inciding with a 9 Personal Year (completion) next year, Obama has a somewhat “downbeat” Essence which started in August 2012. If elected for another term, he likely faces even greater pressures under the challenging Master number 33 Essence, which is in force till 2015.

16/7 PINNACLE (age 53 to end of life): Sometimes brings difficult or unusual circumstances; the so-calledkarmic number”16 highlights unexpected upsets; spiritual deepening; discoveries; deception; or trust issues.

GRID ANALYSIS The letters in Romney's full name create the Line of Achievement (1,5,9). His Ruling Passion Number is 9 (to aim to serve many people.) His three 4's indicate a person who is generally methodical, practical, and logical, and often conservative in most matters. His missing 8 indicates a karmic drive to rise to executive authority and to succeed through business ventures.

CURRENT, FINAL PINNACLE 6—Highlights family ties, commitments; desire to serve or represent groups and communities. This influences of this 6 Pinnacle enhances the chance of fulfilling his 6 Destiny and 6 Realization.

0 Challenge—His path is not easy with “0”--the mark of the “old soul” which tends to attract unusual opportunities, diverse obstacles, and the need to break out of personal limitations--all of which offer opportunity for spiritual growth.

2012 Personal Year is 2—This number tends to favor patient efforts, rather than dynamic action. Strong alliances and relationships are key to success. He must strive to connect with others. This number does not enjoy battling with aggressive personalities, obviously, a given on the campaign trail.

2012 ESSENCE 29—This 29 or 11 is the master number offering him a chance to become a public figure, speaking on the podium. However, this 11/2 combined with the 2 Personal Year tends to emphasize emotional sensitivity, defensiveness or lack of force, which could mean problems communicating a compelling persona or message.

49/13/4 ESSENCE begins a hard-working, practical period on March 12th of 2012 for the next three years. 13/4 indicates a time of possible karmic obstacles or issues. This is the number of transfsormation, which will be in place for the next three years.   His work life holds the possibility to rebuild, change, or enact policy or focus on business and financial matters. Would he be in the Oval Office? If he is the Republican nominee, the 49/13/4 Essence could mean the election is a close count. Four is not the strongest indicator of executive power, but if he does become President, he would tend to run the country like a business!

Birthpath            9  Humanitarian, Broad Thinker
Realization          8  Executive, Power, Authority, Wealth

SHORTER, PUBLIC NAME MITT ROMNEY: Notice that the shorter name of Mitt Romney changes his Destiny to the more powerful, executive number 8. Interestingly, however, the quest for power is still slightly inhibited due to the 1 Habit Challenge. Both his short name and the full birth name have a 1 Habit Challenge, indicating some ambivalence or struggle with exhibiting a powerful, leadership image.

GRID ANALYSIS FOR PUBLIC NAME MITT ROMNEY BELOW: The name Mitt Romney condenses his name letters into the “Line of the General”. This shortened version of his name is better suited for mounting a political campaign. To win, he must obviously coalesce enough support to win the election by developing a strong, clear message. His missing 3 means he has to express warmth, vision, and a compelling mix of political plans. His missing 1 and 8 both require expressing self-confidence and leaderships skills.

FOURTH PINNACLE 14/5 Karmic issues re: freedom
FOURTH CHALLENGE   2 Patience, relationships
ANALYSIS OF THE ORIGINAL NAME GRID On the Grid below which shows all the letters in his birth name, Newt has two Lines of Focus. The first is the Line of Fame (3,5,7). The second is the Line of the General (ability to mobilize people to achieve a goal or mount a battle.) His many 5's (he has seven 5's in his name) show a strong tendency for politics, many interests, rebelliousness, or opportunism. The two focus lines cross “at the mouth” over the 5's, indicating possible problems when speaking privately or in public, which could hamper over-all efforts to achieve goals.
TIMING: In 2012, Gingrich is in a 1 Personal Year, which means that he has entered a new nine-year cycle. He may feel as if he were taking out a new lease on life, fueling his confidence as a candidate for president. In 2012 Gingrich has a 49/13/4 Essence until June 2013. This “karmic” number could bring many obstacles (such as lack of resources or organization) to his path for the nomination. Interestingly, Mitt Romney will be under the same karmic number 49/13/4 starting in March 2012. Both men will find the need to be very organized and determined in their bid for the nomination. Given the same karmic number arising at the same time in their charts, one tends to wonder if there is an invisible connection that is playing out between the two contenders for the oval office! 14/5 PINNACLE continues to bring up unforeseen or unstable circumstances, possible karmic issues, and a desire to engage in the political arena, although leadership is not strongly indicated. 2 CHALLENGE highlights importance of personal relationships, and the need for tact and diplomacy.

Using the shortened version of his name, Newt Gingrich, creates an 11/2 Destiny, placing him in the public eye much more so than the quiet, scholarly 7 Destiny, which was present in BOTH his birth name and adopted name.

Once again, his short name continues to present the Line of Fame (3, 5, 7), and amazingly, we again see the appearance of the “cross over the mouth,” which was present in his birth name. This time the cross happens with the Line of Achievement (1,5,9).

The cross in the grids of both names indicate that his personal ideas and opinions would very likely tend to incur controversy, criticism, or even censure.
