CAN NUMEROLOGY GIVE INSIGHT INTO PEOPLE’S CHARACTERS? (Personality Number)
On the day you are born you take on an independent physical body and develop your own characteristics. The ‘number’ (between 1 and 9) derived from your day of birth is called the Personality Number and it gives you a lot of specific details about your desires, needs, behaviour and psychological make-up. For example, if you were born on the 8th of the month (any month), the qualities of status, authority and control will influence you. You may also be very stubborn and wilful and want to do things your own way. See later in this chapter for more details on the qualities related to each of the numbers 1 to 9 in terms of this personality profile.
People who were born on the same day of any month share similar qualities. There are also, however, many other varying influences over the way they apply these qualities; family, friends, social groups, geographical location, culture, climate, the General Date and other numbers in their Birth Chart, past lives, and so on, so do be sure to take such factors into account. For example, if you were born in London in the ‘Swinging 60s’ (self-indulgence, sexuality, love) or in America in the ‘Roaring 20s’ (the earth and its abundance, deliverance) your characteristics will be tinged with that particular collective energy and this really makes a difference. Another example might be that if you spend a lot of time with certain people you start to take on their mannerisms too. This is fascinating because what you think of as ‘my personality’ is suddenly put into wider perspective, allowing you to see that we are all a part of a larger collective energy or group. Ultimately humanity is one soul.
Through awareness of your Personality Number you can start to let go of limiting mindsets. For example, if you have a Personality Number 6 (see page 37) you may well cling to a need for beauty in physical form or perfection in your living space but 6 also contains the qualities of love and compassion, which can help you to let go of perfection and recognize what is really important in life.
TRY IT: WORKING OUT YOUR PERSONALITY NUMBER
Your Personality Number is based on your day of birth. The Personality Number gives insight into your behaviour, psychological make-up and childhood conditioning.
Example. If you were born on the 17th of the month (any month):
Add 1 + 7 = 8.
Your Personality Number is 8.
Every number contains an abundance of characteristics to explore so that you can learn and grow. Behaviour isn’t who you really are – the true you is your soul, full of goodness, love and connection. Instead, behaviour is a gift to show you how you can change things to become happier.
What qualities are associated with particular Personality Numbers?
Personality Number 1
Character Strengths. You’re like a breath of fresh air – you breeze into any room and you light up the atmosphere instantly. You are full of vitality, enthusiasm and energy and give it out in all directions. You really catch people’s eyes but inside you wonder what all the fuss is about because you’re just being yourself. You are a natural leader who makes difficult tasks look easy and effortless. You plough through life by holding your vision in your mind and going for it full on.
You think strategically and are good at problem-solving because you have a creative mind. Original and innovative, you put people in front of new ways of working, living, or being. You’re purposeful and direct, but are very accommodating when it comes to accepting others’ opinions if you think they’re right. You may work for little pay because it’s the creative process that turns you on, but you are aware of this and are learning to ask for what you need.
Character Weaknesses. You dig your heels in and are too stubborn for your own good at times. You can hold on to ideas and goals for dear life, even when all possibilities are exhausted. Sometimes, though, you just put on a brave face and let others push you around and you can be a victim in life. You rely heavily on others for direction and can be dependent, but you’re learning from experience that you truly only find purpose from within. By focusing your mind you jolt back to reality and move on.
Although you thrive off (mental) challenges, you hold yourself back from setting foot in new relationships, adopting a new routine or changing your outlook on life. You may want someone to dig you out of a hole but only you can do it – eventually you see the light.
