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!

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.

Realization     11/2  Inspiring, Celebrity
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.

ANALYSIS OF ADOPTED NAME GRID Again, Gingrich's adopted name offers the same Line of Fame, (3,5,9)! His Line of Worldly Influence (7,8,9) is strongly present, as well (those three 7's and four 9's indicate a person interested in history.)

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.

How Can I Overcome Shyness?


Mie from Japan writes:

My date of birth is 12/29/1980

I don't feel that I am good at communicating with others. I really suffer and feel inadequate in social situations. I especially have difficulty in keeping a conversation going. I cannot find a good topic to talk about.

I often find myself feeling outside the conversation. Some people are very attentive and patient enough to talk to with me but I think others become weary, and I don't want to feel like a burden.  A lot of times I'll just leave or avoid a situation, preferring to be alone.  As a result, I feel like I am always outside the loop. Any advice?  

Dear Mie-san,

I felt exactly the same way when I was much younger—and sometimes I still do! Don't worry about being shy. Your 29 day of birth adds up to the Master Number 11/2, which is called the Inspirer. The number 2 is often shy at first, because you need a little more time than others to listen before you risk saying something on your own.

The key to becoming more comfortable is to prepare yourself with three things. First, choose a simple opening line when meeting someone you don't already know. “Hi, my name is Mie. What is your name?”

Second, prepare a mental list of two or three questions that you can use in any situation. For example, “What brings you here (to whatever event or activity is happening) today?” or try, “I don't know many people here. What do you know about [the people in this business meeting, the people at the party, etc.]. Avoid asking questions that can be answered by a simple “yes” or “no” because you want to focus on getting the other person to start talking (without sounding too nosy.)

Third, keep up to date on celebrities, recent events, sports, news, weird but funny news stories, so you can mention a few details in conversation. You don't have to make any brilliant remarks, but you will feel more confident if you increase your general knowledge of what's going on in the world.

Wear an unusual piece of jewelry that can be a conversation-starter. Let people that know you collect fun pieces as a hobby, or ask if they have something they collect. Where do they go for the best deals? People love to share advice or info on subjects like shopping, television shows, new movies, medical remedies, phone apps, etc.

At a gathering, avoid closed body language. Look friendly and open to talking. Choose a group and look for a gap where you can stand and listen for awhile. Don't try to interrupt or saying anything until there is a pause. If you think of a question, quickly introduce yourself and just ask a friendly question or make a funny remark. If you can't think of anything just smile at the person next to you. Listen for as long as you like and prepare to move on when there is a natural break. If appropriate, volunteer to help with something like writing name tags, putting out food, etc which gives you an excuse to smile and meet people naturally. Later, if you see someone, say hi again and ask a question or make a little remark as simple, as “Are you enjoying those shrimp rolls!”

Feeling shy means that you are focusing on yourself. Remember--it's all about them, not you. All you have to do is get them talking about themselves, and they will always remember you as a wonderful, friendly person! You'll learn something and go home feeling that you really enjoyed one or two people.

Master Numbers in Numerology

Michelle asks,

Do you have any info about the meaning of the Master Number 55 as a Life Path number?

Thanks for your question, Michelle.  You've prompted me to put down a rather lengthy answer below, in order to consider the many levels of your question. 

Since you are asking about the Master number 55 in relation to your Life Path number, I will explain that the Life Path number is sometimes called the Soul Path or Birth Path number.  In any case, it's the number you get by adding up all the numbers in your birthdate. Some people reduce each number to one digit before adding (except 11 and 22 are addes as whole numbers).  For example, January 22, 1974 =

        1  + 22  + 1 + 9 + 7 + 4 = 44/8  or

        1  + 22  + 3 = 8 

(Either calculation gives the base number 8.  The 44 is inherent in the Life Path, but may or may not be developed. )

The Life Path or Birth Path is the essential part of you--your most important traits, interests, and life perspective.


Master numbers are the double-digits, such as 11, 22, up to 99. 

We Gain Mastery through Challenges and Obstacles

Master numbers tend to signify many challenges in the lifetime to help the soul gain mastery.  The focus of this mastery is found by looking at the specific area indicated both by the two double numbers (e.g., 5 5) and the total of the two numbers

5 + 5 = 10 = 1 + 0 = 1 (base number) 

Master numbers are often (erroneously) considered to be "higher" numbers, given only to special souls who are ready to use their spiritual qualities.  In fact, however, numbers do not ascend in spiritual value as they become larger.  A 9 is not more gifted than a 2.  Each number has it's own quality and place in the universal archetypes of human consciousness. A Master number 33 (6 base number) is not more spiritual, than, for example, 22 (4 base number). In fact, 33 is not more spiritual than 6.

The Master quality appears in the person who has an awakened awareness, and a comprehensive view or ability to access the potential of the base number.Those who seek to recognize and realize their life purpose, and who strive to see the higher purpose behind events are examples of heightened awareness.

Master Numbers Expect More of Themselves 

In my experience talking with people with Master numbers, especially the 22 and 33, it seems like they encounter more than their share of physical and emotional challenges, setbacks, or limitations.

It's not unusual to have at least one Master number in a name or birthdate.  Having two or more Master numbers may subject the person to more extremes in emotions and actions.  The person tends to be either quite sensitive spiritually and emotionally or unable to see the higher purpose of unfortunate events. 

The potential is there to express or create an outstanding influence in the world, but often personal pressures cause the person to retreat from the world or to shine brightly only occasionally. 

Master Numbers Encourage Us to Search and Understand

Parents of children with one or more Master numbers might do well to encourage the child to spend time alone to be able to focus on subjects of interest, read, write, meditate, or just stare at the wall.  The minds of these children may need, more than others, time to rest and reflect.

Master Numbers Encourage Attention to Service to Others

Each Master number has potential in its own way and its own field.  The holder of a Master number must gain mastery over his or her lesser nature, without giving into negative states of addiction, guilt, blame, resentment, victimhood, helplessness, or  hyper self-criticism.

Any Number Contains a Spectrum of Positive and Negative Potential

Few of us achieve the highest fulfillment promised by the numbers of our life purpose.  Some, like unsung heroes, quietly fulfill their destiny unseen.  Others, like the patient father, loyal wife, or good samaritan manage to blossom in a small sphere of influence. Still others are destined to use their potential for far-reaching good (or evil). 

The Master numbers--no more or less than regular numbers--must make constant soul choices.  Throughout our many lifetimes, we journey on the high roads and the low roads, as our Soul cycles through the many experiences necessary for complete experience, understanding, and enlightenment.


11 (2) -- The Inspirer--the mystic, dreamer, artist, who must discover the insights he or she is here to share with others. An 11 may find him or herself in the limelight, spotlight, or on the podium as a public speaker or minister. Ironically, 11 can be the celebrity, and 2 is more comfortable in the background as a loving, selfless, supporter of others. By developing your talents and interests, you gain the ability to share new ideas with others. Possible flaws: shyness, insecurity, anxiety, people-pleasing, procrastination, lack of patience or tact.

22 (4) --The Master Builder--the practical visionary.  22 is a master of social connection and spiritual values, desiring to be made manifest in the material world (4). The double 2 is an emphasis on the feminine, receptive and magnetic archetype.  Therefore 22(4) may be concerned with supporting women issues regarding health, human rights, and economic opportunity. Possible flaws: control issues, over-work, fanatical idealism, cynicism.

33 (6) -- The Master Teacher/Master Healer.  33 naturally gravitates to participating in just causes and missions.  A 33 is born into a lifelong awareness of the importance of tradition,family duties and responsibilities.The interests of 33 include a wide-range of philosophical approaches and healing techniques, and may have outstanding talent in acting, music, art, or singing. Thirty-three strives to provide exceptional and healthy experiences to others through the avenues of education, nutrition, yoga, acupuncture, massage, pyschotherapy, parenting, gerontology, advocacy, spirituality, or organized religion. Possible flaws: martyrdom, sacrifice of personal needs, over-work, fanaticism, giving unsolicited advice, family interference.

44 (8) --The Chief Executive.  The two 4's and total of 8 highlight an unusually shrewd, capable, logical, realistic, and driven nature.  At its best 44 (8) leads others to great heights of achievement and stands for the highest ethics, feats of manufacturing or engineering, financial wealth, and the law.  If in a position of unlimited power, the 44 could become power-hungry, self-serving and indifferent to the needs of lesser beings.  Possible flaws:  greed, hardness of heart, over-materialistic view of life, unrealistic expectations, cynicism, or a Machievellian nature.

55 (1) -- The Innovator.  The two 5's emphasize a highly curious, active, and forward-thinking nature. The passion of 55 is freedom and exploration. The lifelong lesson is to learn the right use of choice and will power.  Endowed with keen powers of observation and analysis, 55 has an outstanding ability to see potential before others do. The path that usually feels right to 55 involves uncharted territory, and a chance to bring something different, new, or original to market. Possible flaws: scattered efforts, addictions, dissipation of energy, fear of boredom, not using your talents, or getting trapped in unrewarding pursuits.  

66 (3) -- Personal Transformation. The two 6's bring forward a profound compassion, the desire for justice, and a deep faith in positive outcomes. Sixty-six's eloquence, loving nature, humor, and charm attract people from all walks of life.  Color, beauty, family, friendships, and joyful community are the heart and soul of this Master number. Negative experiences don't keep 66 down for long, as creative ways are usually found to work through hardship, usually by helping someone else or motivating others through a positive attitude. Possible flaws: over-optimism, gullibility, becoming too involved in outcomes, impractical idealism, over-promising.

Because the Life Path is calculated on the month, day, and year of birth, (especially when first reducing each of the three number to a single digit) it would be unlikely to find a higher number than 66.







Effects of Name Change

Vanessa Smith wrote:
As I was reviewing my charts - the Primary Life Chart and the Secondary Name Chart - I see there's no Pinnacles mentioned in the Secondary chart, does that mean that the ones in the Primary chart still apply?

That's correct.  All the timing in numerology is derived from the original name and birthdate.

And, is one of the main take aways between the two charts to compare what has changed, to see what's in conflict, or reinforced?


Will the primary name qualities always rule over the secondary or is it in the name change that the person becomes malleable & takes on new qualities?

Both, I think.  The Primary Destiny and character elements are always your foundation.  After about one year of using a new name, you may notice subtle differences in your interests, how you interact with others, or what others say about you.  I liken the name change to coloring your hair--the real color is always underneath the new color.
