BIRTHDAY 16 KARMIC
Your over-powering orientation is toward the philosophical and spiritual aspects of life. Your challenge is to find a way to ground that desire and understanding in practical terms so that it can be effectively shared with others.
You have a fine analytical mind that is capable of penetrating beneath the surface of the subject at hand. Investigate the subjects you love and gain the depth of knowledge in these fields.
The great pitfall you face is the choice of becoming aloof, mental, and critical. This will result in alienation and even bitterness. You can also easily lift off the ground, becoming impractical and dreamy. If you indulge too much in flight of fancy, you may drift from reality and give up the possibility of earning an adequate living.
You have excellent intuition and may even possess psychic ability. Trust your intuition and use it as a guide in life. But at all times, be practical in your application of your insights.
Pick a field that suits you -- science, metaphysics, philosophy, psychology, teaching, for example -- and deepen yourself in its understanding. But beware of becoming overly dogmatic and shut off from the truths of others.
You prefer to work alone, rather than in a group. You can easily lose interest in your projects, however, and must work hard to finish what you start. You have to have faith and let opportunities come your way, you may miss out if you reach and seek.
You are very sensitive and feel deeply, but you don't share your feelings easily, nor do you communicate them well. The realm of the heart troubles you for its shifting, nebulous qualities. You must work hard to understand this area of life. You like to spend time alone to contemplate and meditate, but have to be careful not to withdraw too much. Long-term relationships are not easily established nor maintained.
The Expression number shows us who we truly are, what we came into this life already knowing. This is where we feel most comfortable and how we automatically act. We attract people and situations to us that require our Expression so that they can further evolve. In this way we play the role of teacher. Naturally we are attracted to occupations that we resonate to, so the Expression number can be a strong factor in our choice of a career as well. Our Expression is the vehicle, with all its virtues and vices, that drives us along the path of our Destiny. It is the essence of our identity.
You use life changes like rungs on a ladder. Growth, variety, beginnings and endings are constant elements in your life. You are able to let go of anything or anyone in order to further your growth. Because of this ability, coupled with a talent for translating new ideas into logical, useful explanations, you would make a great teacher and/or writer. Travel is something you are made for, even if only through your mind.
Soul Urge: 9
The Soul Urge number has also been called Heart's Desire and Spiritual Urge. It is our secret, innermost longing. Our dream, our motivation, the fuel that energizes our journey. The Soul Urge number reveals what we secretly strive to be or accomplish. Some have said that this number tells us what we have been in previous lifetimes, the accumulated growth of our soul.
Like the number 6 soul urge, your life revolves around giving and receiving love. Your desire, however, includes the whole of humanity and a few races besides. Compassion, passion and forgiveness make up your essence and you are very generous and impressionable. The fine arts call out to you and you may in fact have a master artist living inside of you.
The Persona number describes the way we appear to the outside world, the first impression people have of us. We may not even be aware of how we are perceived by others because we are so often focused on our inner world, and many times the inner does not match the outer. Persona gives us a peek at some hidden talents we have. The talents that we use to get along in the world and in some instances, protect us from it. It is likened to a bag of tools (jewels) that we carry with us along the way.
You've got charisma, and a following to prove it. You live by your belief that change is progress, and so there tends to be a quick turn over in your relationships, jobs and even educational interests. You are the proverbial, " jack of all trades-master of none.", and this gives you a multi-dimensionality that befriends you to people of every walk of life. You are colorful in your dress and possess a magnetic sensuality.
Personal Year: 7
During the 7 vibration you will want to rest, reflect, and analyze your goals, relationships, and where you'd like to go from here. It is a time of introspection, so you may find it necessary to withdraw from life a little bit and go off by yourself. It is a good time to write about your contemplation, as your perception goes deeper now and you have the opportunity to tap into "higher knowledge", which could certainly benefit others as well as yourself. The 7 vibration is surrounded by an air of mysticism from ancient times. It governs the musical scale, the color spectrum, and even the days of our week. It is a time of completion.
The destiny is divided into 3 great cycles, each governing us for specific durations throughout our life. The Seed cycle begins at birth and colors our experiences through childhood and adolescence. During the year nearest our 28th birthday, we move into the Fruit cycle which remains throughout the middle part of our life until the year nearest our 56th birthday, and the Harvest cycle carries on from there. Taken all together, the cycles show us our particular path that will lead to the fulfillment of our destiny.
When 1 is the seed cycle it is more difficult, as the child is surrounded by other people guiding their life, and the inner desire for independence, freedom and self-motivation can lead to conflicts with authority or withdrawal.
This is a period of quiet introspection, study and rest. There are likely to be many bookshelves filled during this time of intellectual and spiritual discovery. Law and physics as the underlying foundation of life are studied, and profound realizations emerge. Technical writing, teaching, law or any kind of scientific research is strongly supported now. Everything needed comes to you when you stop looking for it.
This cycle could find you the head or spokes person of a huge or international organization. Many times it's a spiritual organization, however it could just as well be an environmental or political one so long as it influences humanity in a positive and lasting way. There is an urge to build things now, that will outlive yourself, and that will continue to affect the world and it's people. Often fame can be an outcome of this cycle.
The four pinnacles reveal the high spots or heights of attainment that we are likely to encounter as we move along the path of our life. The 1st pinnacle lasts from birth to around age 28. The 2nd pinnacle lasts for 9 years after that. the 3rd pinnacle lasts 9 more years, and the 4th pinnacle carries on through the rest of our life. The peak of the pinnacle is reached during the next 1 personal year. Pinnacles are like sudden inheritances from a benevolent aunt, they can transform the prevailing energies completely and suddenly. It is useful to look ahead and prepare for our pinnacles so that we can maximize their gifts to us and shape them into the most positive manifestation.
First Pinnacle: 8
You will have, (and need) a tremendous amount of energy with which to transform your ambition into a tangible reality, and it is important to use the energy wisely. Sports or entrepreneurial feats may interest you now. Material support is easy to find and people believe in your ideas now.
Second Pinnacle: 11 Me Now Until age 42
Spiritual expansion, inspiration, and invention are likely results from the high vibrational energies of the 11 pinnacle. Fame, acclaim, and even a devoted circle of followers are another possibility. Psychic abilities are increased and should be developed. Artistic expression is inspired and original creations may be born.
Third Pinnacle: 1
A new phase of life is emerging and it is the time to lay down the foundation. To shape and mold a new vision, the ideal vision of your creation, your life.
Fourth Pinnacle: 5
This time of your life could find you dashing off on an unexpected voyage of adventure. It will be important to remain flexible and willing for change could occur any moment now. Retirement will be more like childhood "could" have been.
The three challenges show us the major influences demanding our attention during specific sections of our lifetime. The 1st challenge influences the years from birth to age 28. The 2nd challenge takes over from age 28 to 52, and the third affects us our whole life. Challenges shape our attitudes and can affect our health. These vibrations that challenge us, cause either an exaggeration of the associated qualities or a lack of them, both of which are extremes which need to be brought into balance.
First Challenge: 6
As a child, 6 may have been given too many responsibilities or parental authority over siblings. They learn to equate love with sacrifice and may feel selfish if they are unable to carry too heavy a burden for another. 6's become doting "parents" to their friends and magnetize every stray animal in town.
Second Challenge: 3
Freedom of expression and communication are the challenges of three. There is either too much freedom, as in gossip, chatterboxes and vanity regarding appearance and talents, or the 3 is fearful of expressing their innate creativity and insecure about their looks. Three's are often childish in behavior and sometimes play games with jealousy and aloofness. To three's friendship equals love and they are fiercely loyal to their friends, often to the exclusion of their family or marriage partner. The balance comes by bringing focus and initiative to their creative ideas and expression, and following through when boredom or another idea or project comes to mind. In accomplishing small aims, three will develop the confidence to share more with the world.
Third Challenge: 3
The 3 is the challenge of expression. It is telling us to stop standing in the corner and to get out in the limelight. Dance, sing, paint, write, act, laugh and shower our gifts of creative inspiration on all the people around us. Those with the 3 challenge are usually shy or unsure of their talents and afraid of criticism. Personal appearance is also an issue with this challenge, as insecurity about one's appearance can lead to too much or too little emphasis upon it. A balance needs to be found between extravagance and mousiness, and it helps to remember that other people are much too concerned about themselves to be judging our looks or talents very seriously.
One represents the beginning, the origin. It is the creator, the individual, the self. One is alone, solitary, and straightforward. One is the beginning, which implies there is more to come. It is from One that all things begin, so One is the instigator, the leader, and the force that moves forward. In geometry, One is the point; the origin. In mathematics, One is the first Prime Number; it is only divisible by itself, and is its own square and cube root. In astrology, One is Aries. From this we associate various attributes of One, such as: individuality, originality, initiative, creativity, willfulness, self-centeredness, egotism, uncaring, unsharing, and bullying.
Two represents The Other. As much as One is focused on itself, Two is focused away from itself. It is not the opposite of One, it is merely the next step in evolution. Two is caring, sharing, giving, receptive, sympathetic and empathetic. Two is the reduced form of the Master Number 11. As such it carries the same potential, but is more practical in application. Two is dual, harmonious, balanced, and stable. In geometry, Two is the line; the other point, that is not the origin. In mathematics, Two is the first even number; it can be evenly divided in half, revealing the second equal. In astrology, Two is Taurus.
Three represents Communication. It is the interaction between One (the Self) and Two (the Other). It is the expression or communication of the attributes of One (the Self) to Two (the Other). It is expression, creation, media, speech, writing, art, entertainment and literature. It is the Trinity, the Triangle, and Perfect Creation. In geometry, it is the Plane, the first formation of substance, the foundation. It also represents the Third Dimension, volume or depth. In mathematics, Three represents the cube. In astrology, Three is Gemini.
Four represents the Application. It is practical and down-to-earth. It represents work, effort, labor, and practice. Four is punctual, loyal, hard-working, and conservative. Four follows the rules, is obedient, and accomplishes its tasks. Like a robot or drone, Four follows routine, is reliable, trustworthy, and accurate. Four does not question, but can appear unfeeling, cold and mechanical. In geometry, Four is represented by the Square; four points, and equal on all sides. It is Four ninety degree angles, totaling 360 degrees, like a perfect circle. In mathematics, Four is the square of Two, (2 X 2), and as such it represents the practical application of Two. It is also the (reduced) practical side of the Master Number 22.
Five represents Sensuality. It is freedom, variety, adventure, and the senses. It is the number of Man and represents all that is human nature. It is sex, drugs, alcohol, and other forms of indulgence. In geometry, Five is the Pentagram, the symbol of Man, (it represents his body with five points - head, arms and legs - as well as his five physical senses). In mathematics, it is Three and Two, in that it represents things that are an interaction (3) with others (2), on a physical level. In astrology, Five is Leo.
Six represents Family. It is the home, the parent, the healer, and the counselor. It is domestic bliss, responsibility, compassion, marriage and devotion. It represents fraternity and brotherhood, or sorority and sisterhood. It is the common bond between people that makes them close. It is love and nurture, harmony and justice. In geometry, it is the Hexagon, which is two triangles which share a common side. Likewise, in mathematics, it is two Threes, or the second Perfection. It is said that when God created the universe, He spoke the Word, and the Creation was Perfection. (1 + 2 = 3). Then He created Life, (plants, animals, and Man), but it was not complete until Man had a family. It was the union between Man and Woman that was the Second Perfection, (the second Three). In astrology, Six is Virgo.
Seven represents the Sage. It is the Teacher, the Inner Wisdom, the student, the scientist, and the priest. It represents the search for truth, the study of facts, the process of learning, the quest for knowledge. It is spiritual as well, representing faith, confidence, religion, belief, serenity and the quest for inner peace. Like the Sage, Seven represents an authority, a guide, an advisor, a recluse, or a hermit. In geometry, Seven is the Pyramid, both Four and Three. Likewise, in mathematics, Seven is Four and Three, signifying the practical application (4) of communication (3). In astrology, Seven is Libra.
Eight represents Material Success. It is money, fame, fortune, recognition, accomplishment, achievement and notoriety. It represents the executive, the financier, and the entrepreneur. It is diplomacy, decision, practicality, control, judgment and power. In geometry, Eight is the Octogram, two squares superimposed upon each other to form an eight pointed star. In mathematics, it is two Fours, symbolizing the practical application of practical applications. In other words, the result of the proper application (4) of work or effort (4). In astrology, Eight is Scorpio.
Nine represents Society and Completion. It is mankind, philanthropy, charity, social issues, and government. It is universal love, giving, and the brotherhood of Man. It represents neighborhood, clubs, organizations, institutions, and the common good. It is the completion of a cycle, change, reform; the end before the new beginning. In geometry, Nine represents the Circle. Like the square, it is 360 degrees, which is four 90 degree angles, (3 + 6 + 0 = 9). It is the completed cycle. In mathematics, Nine is the Third Three (3 X 3 X 3). As such, it represents the perfect expression of perfection. It represents completed creation, the expansion of the family of man. In astrology, Nine is Sagittarius.
Eleven is the first Master Number and represents intuition, spirituality, revelation, inspiration, power of spirit, and soul. It is the ideal aspects of Two, being caring, sharing, giving, sympathy, and empathy, but on a spiritual level. It is represented by two Ones, side by side, signifying the duality of the Creator. It is the Inner Purpose, the path to enlightenment. The purpose of Eleven is the selfless service to mankind and the evolution of the spirit. As Eleven dwells on the spiritual plane, it is not represented in the mundane sciences of mathematics and geometry. In astrology, Eleven is Aquarius.
Twenty Two represents the Cosmic Mastermind. It represents the big picture, the overview, the Master Plan. It is power on all planes, the overseer of the universe, the Cosmic Law. It is the ultimate ideal, the grandest wisdom, the sum of all knowledge. It possesses the understanding of the occult, the forces of magick, the consciousness of the soul, and the compassion of true spiritual love.
