Q: Hello, the 0 represents The Fool. What else does the number zero represent – as in the year 2000? What does that 2000 represent?

A: The zero, in numerology is an ‘intensifier’ to a large degree. All vibrations are contained within it (rather than no vibration) and it is a sort of ‘wild card’ because of this. For the most part though, zero stands for; the Limitless, Unknowable, Truth, Purity, Love, All, Alpha and Omega, all possibility, First Cause, the Unmanifest, Unified Field, Source, Space, Consciousness, Cosmic Egg, God and attributes of God. So when we see a numbered followed by a zero, it is adding Power and protection to that number as well as a sort of ‘purity’ and intensification to the digit affected by zero. 2000 is followed by three zeros making it a triple-intensified 2! 2’s keywords are; : duality, yin (as in yin/yang) division, polarity, choice, gestation, subtlety, ‘behind the scenes’, cooperation, service, harmony, support, waiting, diplomacy, patience, psychic, intuition, adaptable, empathic, partnerships, security, mediator, comparison, receptive, helper, collecting and saving, reproduction, Balancer of Opposites, subconscious memory, positive and negative – opposites living in harmony or coming together to co-create a third entity/possibility. 2 is the Priestess and all feminine aspects. We should see ‘women issues’ rising up to the surface – in the limelight. ‘Women in power’ will no longer have to mean women acting ‘as men’ but rather the intuitive, diplomatic, cooperating, kind, forgiving, nurturing, as well as the sensuous, seducing, emotional, waxing and waning aspects of femininity will be/are being regarded as powerful and influential.

Q: My mother has studied Numerology for years, and recently I gave birth to my first child. She was born on Feb. 4, 2000, which she said is not a good thing. I don’t think she will tell me the truth of what her birthdate means because she does not want to hurt my feelings and worry me. Is there anywhere that I can go to talk to someone about this so that I don’t feel like my child is doomed to be cursed under the 4/8 cycle?

A: Hi Laura! hmmm… I don’t see this birthdate as negative in the least! I wonder what kind of numerology you mother studied? Many eastern methods (chaledean, vedic) assign astrological planets to the numbers and then compare the relationship between the planets. I have not found this to be as accurate for me – at least not in predicting day to day life, the Destiny and character of the person. The “malefic” or “good luck” influences of interacting planets is more often indicative of past life issues that create general challenges and opportunities in the current life. Basically, your daughter is ‘blessed’ with an 8 Life Path Destiny. She should be strong and self assured (make sure that her name is a higher number than 8. 22 would be excellent! Since you’ve probably already named her, her birth name will define ‘who’ she is at the core and any variation you add now (or later) would provide extra ‘tools’ that will assist her with her Life Path. So, if she has an odd number birth name Expression, you might want to change the lettering or give her a nick name that would give her an even number total so that she is not warring within herself (‘odd’ against ‘even’). It’s always helpful for her name to be a higher number than her Destiny because it means that her name contains all of the vibrations necessary to achieve her Destiny – easier. A name that adds up to be a smaller number than the Life Path does dot mean anything ‘bad’, it just means that her Life Path will take more effort to achieve because she is missing that number in her make up. If her name contains any ‘8’ assigned letters (h,Q,Z), this will help her too.

It’s important to remember that there are no ‘bad’ number Life Paths, only misunderstandings about how to live them out, and ill-preparedness due to an un-supportive name. Having an 8 Life Path Destiny is actually greatly benefited by having a 4 birthday. 4 is a very practical, organized person. Loyal, hard working, and honest. 8 is the number of the ‘Boss’. She will be learning about what it means to control things; money, people, resources etc… so this is why many books say that 8 is the number of the ‘executive’ or the head of the company. Her 4 birthday will give her the added ability to focus her attention and get things done – what better combination for a successful, creative woman? Your daughter will earn her success and prosperity by her own hard work, but this is not ‘bad luck’, the work will seem easier for her because it’s what she wants, and what makes her feel productive and happy. As I said before, make sure that her name helps her out. If it is made up of primarily odd numbers (1,3,5,7,9) – look at the birth name total (Expression), the vowel total (Soul Urge) and consonant total (Personality) – see if you can tweak it a little so that she gets more support from her name. Make sure to look at her total birth name (first, middle and last) to get her main core numbers and then look at what just her first name (as she will be called) vibrates to. There are many ‘remedies’ to help balance out name/birthdate imbalances – adding or subtracting letters, shortening or creating a “nickname”. Please try not to let the other interpretations frighten you. Your new daughter is a powerful soul who deliberately and joyfully came to learn many exciting new things. There are many many happy, wealthy, satisfied people born with 8 Life Path Destinies and 4 birthdays! She has every potential right now to be one of these and she will believe what you believe about her.

Wishing you love, laughter and awe-inspiring joy as you enjoy your beautiful new baby!

Q: – I want to know the meanings of the numbers. I saw a numerologist on a t.v. show recently that said that (8) was a tragedy number. but now i’m having trouble remembering if it was another (7?) number. In the context she was referring to, it was the flight # of the airliner from new york to paris which exploded mid-air. I think the number was 800, but i’m not certain. thank you.

A: She was talking about flight 800. She was explaining that *8* followed by the two 0’s made it a “super-powered” *8* (which is what 0’s do.) *8* is the number of power, authority, big creations and enterprise. It’s also the number of karma and what you sow, you reap etc… It’s the tie to the 8th house in astrology that I think people hook onto. The astrological 8th house governs sex, death, transformation, inheritance, and “things you have no control over.” In numerology, 8 means “harvest” and “reward”, “abundance”, strength and intensification It is the number of bearing the fruit of your labors, abundance, multiplication of power…. nothing inherently “bad” unless all efforts previous to the 8 were destructive, then the 8 would bear the fruits of destruction. 800 is a triple-powered 8 and it may have been a matter of “amplification” of whatever was inherently wrong with the plane that led to the tragedy, if “800” had something to do with it. On a different plane it may have just attracted a lot of business men and women or wealthy, influential people (it was going to Paris.) Also, it surely wasn’t the only “flight 800” there ever was. I try to encourage people to go by their “gut” in all instances. Pay attention to numbers so you know the potential, but always verify everything inside of you. If I were looking for an address to have a successful business or a successful home-business, I’d find an 8 address right away! Or if I were naming a racehorse, I’d make sure it figured out to an 8 Expression, ensuring physical strength and lots of money. In other words, 8 is nothing to be automatically feared or avoided, only understood, respected, and used appropriately when possible – it’s not a “tragedy number.”

Q: Hi, I saw a show on Television today and noticed the subject was on numerology. At the beginning of the show, they told everyone how to figure out their (Life Path/Destiny) number but I missed it. I know there is some math involved but I did not catch what it was. Could you please tell me how to figure out my number and other peoples numbers? – D. A.

The Pythagorean “Letter Grid”

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
a b c d e f g h i
j k l m n o p q r
s t u v w x y z

Name Calculations: Birth Certificate Name:

7 1 3 V = 11/2
1 6 1 0 1 2
1 5 9 1 5 5 7 5
A N G E L I A R E N E C Y P H E R S T = 5
5 7 3 9 5 3 7 8 9 1
1 5 1 4 2 8
6 5 1 C = 3


Fill in the number values from the “Letter Grid” above, putting the vowels above the name and the consonants below the name.

Beginning with the vowels at the top of the name, add the vowels for each name separately place the number in the row above. Then, if the number is a double digit (and not an 11, 22 or 33), further reduce by adding those two digits together to arrive at a single digit. Place that number in the very top row as shown above. Finally, add the three single digits representing the vowel totals for each name across to arrive at a total. If this is a double digit, (and not an 11, 22 or 33) add again to get a single digit. This number is the Soul Urge.

Do the same thing with the numbers below the name to find the Persona or “Outer Personality” number.

Finally, add the vowel and consonant totals for each name and reduce to a single digit (if not an 11, 22 or 33), then add the three name totals together and reduce to get the Expression or “Character” number. *A quick way to get the single digit Expression is just to add the Soul Urge to the Persona*

Or some add it all up this way:

Add the top row across ie:
1+5+9+1+5+5+7+5 = 38 Further reduce 38, 3+8 = 11/2
(If your double digit adds up to 11, 22 or 33 do not reduce it further as it is a “Master Number”.)
In the case above, the vowels equal 11/2. This is the “Soul Urge.”

Now add the bottom row across ie:
5+7+3+9+5+3+7+8+9+1 = 57 Further reduce 57, 5+7 = 12
Further reduce 12, 1+2 = 3
In the case above, the consonants equal 3. This number is the “Persona” or “Outer Personality.”

To find the “Expression” or “Character” you add the “Soul Urge” plus the “Persona”, in the case above you would get 14. Further reduce 1+4 = 5

Q: Would you please explain how do you treat foreign language letters. For example, there are nine additional letters in my mother tongue (Polish): a, c, e, l, n, o, s, z, z having some accent mark over or below a letter. They are pronounced differently than a, c… Polish alphabet contains all English (or Latin) letters plus these once mentioned before – except v.

A: Modern numerology uses the ‘Pythagorean’ letter grid, which places the 26 letters of the English alphabet in their vibrationally correct places relating to the units/numbers 1-9.

The English alphabet (which is the same alphabet used in most western European languages) evolved roughly in this order: Egyptian/Cuneiform/Hieroglyphs>Phoenician>Hebrew>Greek>Roman>English. Another branch was born from Greek and that branch led to ‘Cyrillic’ languages like Russian, Serbian, Bulgarian and the Soviet languages. Many languages have alphabets that resemble the English alphabet with the addition of a few special characters and various accents etc..

These special characters have to be dealt with individually as it doesn’t work to apply a simplifying rule to all languages, such as, ‘just number your country’s alphabet according to the 1-9 grid.’ This way displaces letters which would’ve been in the right place to begin with! It throws everything way off.

Numerology works because of the relationship between each letter and it’s numerical equivalent and this has evolved over time to the alphabet many countries now use. There is a specific order – a definite ‘vibrational relationship’ which is perfectly aligned with the numbers: 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9, and the following octaves of 10’s. This too has evolved and now we have the correct numbers/vibration to describe what the alphabetical letters had to do on their own in earlier times. In other words, ‘In the beginning’… ‘A’ stood for Aleph, Alpha, one, the first, active, initiation, the creative impulse etc… and it was used for describing 1 unit since they had no Arabic numeral system yet.

Basically, ALL languages that ‘look’ like the English alphabet are meant to line up to their numerical equivalents in the same way i.e., 1=A,J,S 2=B,K,T 3=C,L,U… Several languages, such as Turkish, Norwegian and others have added special elements and unique characters that are used to convey special changes in pronunciation. The ‘soft g’ you are asking about is actually silent and is used to carry the sound of the previous vowel (you know this but for the sake of other readers…) In this case it still plays the roll of ‘g’ in the numerology equation – it’s just a silent sounding ‘g’. Both ‘C’s, ‘I’s, ‘O’s, S’s, and U’s are also the same letter with a different slant on pronunciation. In English, we just use the same letter to represent all of the various sounds that letter makes. H can be silent as in “Herbs”, W can sound like ‘Wiggle” or be silent and carry the vowel as in ‘Glow’… the vowels can be long ‘ee’ or short ‘eh’ etc… But the letters are still the same letters and this would be the case in all languages that use the same Greek>Roman/Latin based alphabet system. There is another form of numerology that is used for obtaining further information about a subject and this is based on the phonetic ‘sounds’ of the words or names. In this way, a name spelling like ‘Angelia’ might be spelled as ‘Anjelea’, or how it sounds, in order to get some additional information about it’s vibration. This is not to be confused or mixed up with the way we get the core numbers for Pythagorean numerology which describes your Expression. Soul Urge, Personality etc..

**When using the NumberQuest report calculators for free and paid reports, be sure to enter your name into the form converting all of the letters into the English alphabet equivalent first. This is the best way to ensure the most accurate reading.

Q: Very interesting site–thank you for the information. However, I cannot find what are the meanings of the numbers given to various aspects of the Name Analysis. For example, I got a 3 on Expression, a 6 on both Soul Urge and Personality. Do these numbers represent (a) where I stand on a sliding scale (10 is better than 1/one is better than 10) or (b) the sum of my name or (c) some other aspect ?

A: The number totals in your report represent the total sum calculated by adding the number values that are assigned to the letters of your name. The numbers are not “graded” as in 1 is better or higher than 9, but they do move in the numerical cycle from 1-9 and this is considered to be a repeating cycle of “evolution” where certain abilities, and perspectives are “mastered” through each number in the cycle. The cycle does “ascend” from 1 to 9, going from a simple (pure) vibration to the more complex. This could be seen as going from lower to higher the same way the musical octave shifts in vibration, from lower to higher frequency, but it’s not a contest of better or worse 🙂 Numerology is about symbolism and about a certain defined energy flows, cycles and patterns. In order to understand what it is saying, one must engage not only their mind, but also their heart and intuition. Numerology is much like a photograph that can be used to remind ourselves “who we are” and in this way we can be awakened to a whole new world of choices than we previously thought possible.

Your personal or “core” numbers (Expression, Soul Urge, Personality and Life Path Destiny) stay the same throughout your life. When you change or shorten your name it also has an effect on the people and experiences you attract to your life. Your “Cycles”, “Pinnacles” and “Challenges” also stay the same, but the Personal Year, Personal Month and Personal Day change according to the cycle 1-9. So if today is a “5” Personal Day for you, tomorrow will be a “6” Personal Day etc.. The Personal Day, Month and Year are figured according to your birth date and the calendar year so in a sense they are your own unique vibrations for that day, month or year.

In NumberQuest, the meaning of each number is defined in relationship to its aspect, for example: A #3 Soul Urge (aspect) will talk about how the #3 manifests as a persons hopes and secret desires and attractions. While a #3 Personality will talk about how the #3 manifests as a person’s outer personality and appearance. The top paragraph describes what the aspect means and the bottom paragraph describes the number’s influence according to that aspect.

Q: I just have to comment on this. I saw this before and didn’t say anything about it but I just have to know now why there is a discrepancy between your infomation and the information presented at another Numerology website. Your Numerology Report is showng this for me today ….

Personal Day: 2

The report that I just ran at another site is showing this for me today ….

Personal Day: 11/2

Any ideas what is causing this discrepancy?

A: (Birth Date info was given) Yes, for today you would add your Personal Year *8* plus the calendar month *3* (March) and would get an *11/2* for your Personal Month. Then, each day of this month you would add 11 (not reduced to 2) plus the calendar day. 11 + 9 (for today) = 20 and you reduce it to 2 (2+0). The discrepency then is that the other site is reducing your 11 Personal Month down to a ‘2’ before adding the day, but then you end up with Master Numbers at the wrong times and no Master Numbers at the right times. You would only ever get to experience a sometimes accurate Master Number 11 day and never a Master Number 22 or 33 day.. 😉 Shortcuts jip you. In the same way, some books teach you to basically cross out all of the 9’s in order to get to a single digit total much faster. NumberQuest is known for accuracy and depth of analysis, so it’s important to me to make sure you are getting precise and accurate calculations – even for the free reports.

Is my Personal Day an 11 or a 2? Read More »

Q: Your web site is wonderful, and I have learned and enjoyed, as this was my first experience with numerology. I do not know what is meant by: Personal Year, Month, and Day. What or when is my Personal Year – is it the year I was born? Is my personal month the month of my birthday every year it comes around? And the same with my day? I know that the title of this segment is Natal Analysis, using my natal data. I’m just not sure how to apply this information!

A: The personal year, month and day are calculations that show the effects and influence of the calendar year, month and day combined with your personal numbers of birth-month and birth-day.

Your Personal Year shows you the number vibration for the current year long period as it combines with your personal cycles. It is found by adding together your birth day plus birth month plus the calendar year,

Example for year 1999

ie: Birth Date: May(5) 2nd = 5+2 +1+9+9+9 = 35, 3+5 = *8* Personal Year

The Personal Month adds the Personal Year (in my example, *8*) plus the calendar month number,

ie: 8+1(Jan) = *9* Personal Month.

The Personal Day is found by adding the Personal Month (in my example, *9*) plus the calendar day,

ie: (today is Jan 3rd.) 9+3=12 and 1+2=3 = *3* Personal Day

(11, 22 and 33 are master numbers and are not reduced to a single digit like all other number combinations. “Master numbers” means there is “higher potential” or spiritual influence during those periods.)

Q: This might seem like a weird question, but some reports that I ran at another website are making me ask it. I have to ask it. Do 4 people get along with 6 people? Can they have a successful relationship? Under Numerology, is there a way for me to tell whether my husband and I have a karmic relationship?

A: 4 people get along famously with 6 people. They are both balanced, even numbers and have many of the same natural priorities; responsibility, care taking, order/esthetic beauty… They are both “earthy” numbers, stable and loyal. They evolve through caring for others. Be careful about all that you read out there in cyberspace.. There is a lot of accidental mis-information and confusion spreading. If you try to assign a planetary personality to a number to fit it into astrology, you get a lot of mis-information. Astrologically, the Moon can be at odds with Mercury but this has nothing to do with whether a *numerological* number 4 is compatible with a *numerological* number 6. I believe you got your Soul Mate Synergy report done with your husband? That report measured the compatibility between each of your aspects and then described your composite numbers (Synergy) which paint a sort of picture of the relationship as if it were a separate entity (which it is!). You didn’t share any of the ‘same’ numbers which usually speak of “love/friendship at first sight”, however, you have mostly compatible numbers (only the Soul Urge numbers are ‘challenged’ by each other and this is more about your inner motivations and dreams: His dreams are more about stability and certainty and yours are more adventurous and risk taking.) All of the rest are perfectly compatible as two unique people sharing a multi-faceted life. You both have Master number Destiny’s too.

The karmic ties that draw soul to soul cannot me limited by astrology and numerology. It’s a forever mystery and I think it’s good that way. We can find ‘hints’ via astrology and numerology, but these ‘methods’ can never fully define the mysteries of Soul Mates. Many times ‘soul mates’ have the most incompatible astrology charts! and their numbers may hint more at the truth of their connection. Are you soul mates who came to work out past hurts? Or are you soul mates who came to support each other on your paths? Are you soul mates who agreed to stay together forever to learn about love and loyalty? Or soul mates who agreed to play a specific role and move on?… I see friendship and support in your numbers with your husband rather than intense ‘karmic’ patterns to be overcome. Your numbers are ‘friendly’ and supportive and there seems to be longevity. That’s not to say that there aren’t difficulties, but just that you are both the types to stick in and work them out. You both instinctively know that you must take the ‘higher road’ due to your Master Number Destinies.

Q: If I have an 8 for a soul urge # what would tell me what my husband’s soul # is and visa versa. In other words that number tells us our soul urge not our actual soul #. How do you compare? How do we find the # that tells us what we are vs. what we urge? Does having the same expression number mean anything?

A: The Soul Urge tells you both what you desire in your heart and what you are on the soul level. The vowels describe the Soul “you” while the consonants describe the physical you. When we are talking about soulmates – people with whom we have soul ties, there is often a tie between their Soul Urges in some way. Some couples will have a Soul Urge connection *only* and this will often be found among couples who may have nothing else in common, yet can’t be without the other for some inexplicable reason. Co-dependency and other “dysfunctionality” is common here. Connections between the Expressions or Life Paths are another indication of compatibility and this is a very common tie that creates long term relationships. Connections here indicate that long term harmony is likely as the two people basically “see” from the same perspective. It is not as tempestuous as Soul Urge ties and usually endures for the long term. Personality ties are quick and powerful physical attractions that fade quickly if there are no other ties.

Your husbands Soul Urge will be found by getting his numbers at iDivine.com.

His Soul Urge tells you what his heart resonates to, as does your Soul Urge. If they are both odd numbers or both even numbers, there is harmony even if they’re not the same. If one is even and the other’s is odd, there is tension that can be very exciting at first and then can become irritating over the long term.
