House Number Influences

Hi Carol!
I have a quick question about numerology. I read your book The Purpose of Your Life, back in 2007 and picked it up recently to re-read it and it's amazing how fresh everything is and pertinent to my life now.

I also just started getting into numerology last year and find it so fascinating and right on every time! I even found your first book The Numerology Kit through Amazon and have shared it with my 14-year-old niece who loves it too. My question is about house numbers. My address is 407..which is a master number of 11, but I'm hoping to start a business from my home and tried putting a 6 on the door to make it 17 or 8. What I've found is that our main focus has become improving the home through decorating and repairs instead of working on the biz. My husband and I are also in a "6" personal year and I'm in a "6" pinnacle which could also add to that.

Does changing the number on your door really make a difference, and if so, what number should we put up there to help get our butts in gear and make this business happen? Right now we have a 22 up there hoping the 'master builder' number will add to the "11" energy...our biz is going to be a non-profit to promote awareness of teen deaths due to distracted driving. Sorry for long email...I appreciate any advice you can give. :) Helena


Dear Helena,

Good questions, and you seem to have a good understanding of the numbers.  I agree that your 6 Personal Year and 6 Pinnacle are exerting an influence on you to pay attention to the beauty, comfort, and security of your home.  Six rules all our domestic areas from marriage, home, children, and responsibility and care for family and friends.  So I think those numbers are your most basic influences shaping your attention in these practical and nurturing ways.

 As to adding a number to your door in order to change the vibration of the house, I am not so sure that is effective.  I personally don't subscribe to the idea of trying to change the legal, postal address of an office or residence.  To me it just seems a convey lack of faith in what is, and desire to control outcomes--often a setup for disappointment!  

Your house naturally has the beautiful 407 (11) vibration, which already broadcasts your desire to bring inspiration, guidance, and hope to others.  The individual numbers of 4 bring a pratical, business-like sense.  The 4 says, "pay attention to what needs doing (repairs?)"  The 4 says, "make a business plan, be prudent, and be prepared to be in this for the long haul as you work through obstacles and lay good groundwork for building a network.

The 0 shows a spiritual gift of guidance and possible major breakthroughs in consciousness (yourself and those you reach out to).  The 7, as well, brings in a serious, deep, insightful vibration that emphasizes patience, intuition, and letting synchronicities open doors.

The total of 407 is 11--the master number called The Inspirer.  You already have it all!


Can I make a career in numerology?

Hello Carol,

I read "The Purpose of Your Life," and your personal story was a revelation. I too have been strangely attracted to numerology. But, I'm an African American man and telling my "tribe" about numerology has been very costly. It has cooled my relationships between me and my friends and family. I sure didn't see any of that coming. In retrospect, I've been very naive. To make matters more interesting, I ordered a chart from you and I've just realized that I'm in my fourth pinnacle with an 11/2 influence. I've tried to turn all of this into a positive and use it as the basis for work as a career coach. I've gotten a certificate from Sue Fredrick's "I See Your Dream Job" course. I'm now working as a volunteer to help coach young people, but I'm leery about asking for birth dates or saying anything about numerology. I'd like to make a living as a numerologist in some way but I'm beginning to feel discouraged. A part of me is saying "are you kidding me? numerology? you better go out and get a j.o.b.!" My question to you is are there any numerology associations out there? I could use a little advice and camaraderie. On a technical note, what kind of relationship does a pinnacle number have with a life path number? Thank you for your time and consideration. CP

Dear CP,

Thank you so much for taking the time to write, and for your kind words about TPOYL.  I can certainly understand that you might face some resistance when sharing your enthusiasm about numerology--especially if your friends and family have a strong belief in any of the organized Christian religions.  Now and again, I've been told by religious people that numerology is the work of the devil (and that includes my own eighty-four-year old aunt!  Therefore, I don't really bring up sensitive subjects like politics or my work with them anymore.  Numerology is a venerable tradition and has roots not only in Biblical passages, but in the Kabbalah.  It's been around for thousands of years for good reason. Can you develop a numerology practice?  Yes, you can.  Your Pinnacle of the 11/2 (the Inspirer) is an opportunity to study and share subjects of study such as psychology, metaphysics, numerology, and other disciplines--if you want to.   I wonder if you have any karmic numbers showing up in your chart? (13,14,16, or 19).  If you do, it might indicate that your sense of isolation or being "an outsider" may not be the first time you have been a person whose interests don't go along with your mainstream milieu.  Just a thought. If you are truly drawn to study numbers, then do it.  Try to avoid sharing your interest with those whom you are pretty sure won't be receptive.  Believe me, it's a losing battle!  However, there are tons of people who do want to know about themselves.  They will be open to your information and guidance if they can find you.   For years, I worked out of virtual closet space in small bookstores (which of course are hard to find now with the publishing industry being in transition and independent bookstores on the brink of extinction) to offer readings on Saturday.  Once you get your system of reading (and of course using your intuition along with the numbers) you can test the waters with 15 or 30 minute readings.  Be sure to charge a nominal fee so you are not working for free!  People won't be as likely to respect the info if they get it for free, so you are doing them a favor, too. Let me know if you would ever like to talk further about this.  We could schedule a consultation on the phone.  In the meantime, do you mind if I post your question and my answer on the website (with an anonymous name for you??) Warmest regards and many blessings on your path, Carol

Dear Carol, When I thought about the earthquake that occured on 11th March in Tohoku area, I also thought about the events in the US on September 11. Carol, do you think are there any relations of two? Yesterday, I went to hear the lecture of an Eastern Philosopher. He is the well known chinese ancient fourtune telling. March 11th earthquake means that it is a point when history will change. Anyway, If you have got any thoughts, I am happy to have your comments. Best, S.H.


Dear S.H.
Interesting thoughts about the 11th.  Since 11 is one of the Master Numbers, it is always referred to as The Inspirer.

Eleven refers to light, insight, revelation,  which is often delivered through film, TV, and the influence of "celebrity." Obviously, the stunning and unexpected quality of both of these events on an 11th day shocks us into waking up (again and again)  to our limited understanding, vulnerability, and precious time left to do what we came here to do.  These all sound positive, don't they, but how come it takes disasters to wake us up? 

How Can Numbers Define Me?

Question: How can somebody else's idea of a befitting way to refer to me.... define me? My mother chose the letters and order of them in which to pronounce my name...I'm confused as to how this could define me? Even if this label was used to correlate numbers, it's still a label...I could've been called anything and would still be me. I understand numeral and planetary placement impact , which is why I've ordered the chart, but I want to understand how a name could be thought to define me, my essence or my path in any way. Also, why don't your readings require the time of birth? Wouldn't that allow for more exact astrological information? Please clarify, I'd really like to understand. Leah

Answer(s): I agree, that to the casual eye, it does seem impossible that a seemingly random numerical sequence could in any way describe a person's personality and future life. Since ancient times, numerology, like astrology, has been one of the most reliable and trusted metaphysical systems--almost like a language--that enables us to take a deeper look at our lives.

If Life is Not Random
If we believe that life is completely random with no purpose, than these systems seem of no value. If however, we take the view that there is a deeper purpose to our birth, to the events we encounter, to the amazing synchronicities that sometimes change the course of our life, then we intuitively sense that we are connected to an energy field that is larger than just one person.

Numerology is a Symbolic Language that Describes Life Energy Numerology teaches that each letter of the alphabet (reduced to the numbers 1 - 9) symbolizes a type of energy in the world. For instance, number 1 is associated with beginnings, as a seed is planted. It expresses as dynamic, new, different. Number 2 (1 + 1) is associated with union, thus, it rules friendships, partnerships. As a quality, 2 is considered the opposite of dynamic 1--receptive and nurturing. Two gives time for an idea to grow.

Each Soul has a Purpose.

Numerologists recognize that the Soul is coming into life for its own reasons, and that the Soul chooses the parents who can give it the physical genes, early childhood support, (or non-support), and material circumstances, in order for it to best begin and develop its destiny. These concepts are not usually taught in our organized religions (although the possibility of reincarnation seems to have been part of early Christian teachings before the establishment of the Church.) Metaphysical teachings tend to accept the idea that the Soul lives many lifetimes in order to develop and express its energy. Some Souls (with support from their spiritual guides in the spiritual dimension before birth) have very definite purposes. In other cases, a Soul who dies early, or seemingly accidentally, for example, might decide to reincarnate rather quickly, without much reflection in the spiritual realm. A very thorough and fascinating book, Exploring Reincarnation, on this subject was written a few years about by the Dutch author and past-life expert, Hans TenDam.

Parents are Unconciously Connected to the Incoming Soul Therefore, a numerologist would say that whoever names the child (usually a mother or father, but could be a relative) is unconsciously in rapport with the spiritual destiny of the incoming Soul.

Numerology Does not Calculate Using the Time of Birth

Unlike astrology, which uses the time of birth to calculate the position of the stars at one's moment of birth, numerology does not require the time. Numerology calculates many points of information in a "chart", using various aspects of the month, day, and year of birth together with the full birth name as recorded on the birth certificate.

How to Calculate Personal Month
Can you explain how you calculate your personal month.  
If your personal year is 3, is this month of October your 
personal month 10 and is that actually month 1?  
We had a personal consult in NYC several years ago, 
and hopefully I will be able to have another one sometime soon.
Thank you.  Ann 

Hi Ann,

No, Here's how it works. If your Personal Year is 3, you add "3" to each of the calendar month numbers. So, for example, your Personal year is 3. Therefore:

January is the first month, so you add 1 (for the first month) + 3

(your personal year) = 4 Personal Month for January.

February = 2 + 3 = 5 Personal Month

March = 3 + 3 = 6 PM

April = 4 + 3 = 7 PM

May = 5 + 3 = 8PM

June = 6 + 3 = 9pm

July = 7 + 3 = 10 = 1 + 0 = 1 PM

Aug = 8 + 3 = 11 = 2 PM

Sept = 9 + 3 = 3 PM

Oct = 10 + 3 = 13 = (1+3) 4 PM

Nov = 11 + 3 = 14 (1+4)= 5 PM

Dec = 12 + 3 = 15 (1+5) = 6 PM

<< Start < Prev 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 Next > End >>

Results 46 - 54 of 66
