According to the study of Numerology, each number possesses a balance of yin and yang. The primary numbers, 1-9, have varying levels of ego and altruism, for example. 1 being heavy on ego energy, 9, altruism.
Those with a Birth Number 1 are natural leaders. They are creative and progressive but on the shadow side can be aggressive and suffer from egotism. They are absolutely necessary in our society and function well once they find a healthy balance for their 1 energy and find resolution between their innate dependency and yearning for independence. Should they have a lot of repeating 1s in their chart, however, is when it can become difficult for 1s (and those around them;)
Over emphasis on any number presents a challenge, but 1 in particular is tough because it can be hard for the individual to have self-awareness around it. When I see a chart with a lot of 1s, it presents an exciting opportunity for me to show my client something that may otherwise be difficult for him/her to see. Just the other day, I had such an opportunity with my client, Paul.
Paul has a Birth Number 1, Challenge Number 1 and Emotional Number 1. That's not the most 1s I've seen, but it is a lot. Particularly because the challenge number brings out the shadow side of 1. Having never met Paul, it was interesting to gauge his response as I explained the situation to him.
As I went through his Blueprint, explaining the impact of each number, I saw Paul open up and let down his guard. He admitted to me that although he was extremely driven, focused and committed, his aggressive energy often interfered with important work and personal relationships. I think he surprised himself at how well he was being able to critique himself and see his own flaws clearly.
This had been a common point of contention in many areas of Paul's life. We reviewed Name Remedies, Feng Shui and just general self-awareness around this issue and Paul left our meeting with a new outlook. Later that day, he emailed me with a great anecdote about a great conversation he had with his girlfriend that could've easily turned into an argrument had he not curbed his 1 energy. Knowing that he had a 2 Mental Number (2 is a great collaborative, empathetic number), he chose to rationalize versus be over-emotional and aggressive as he normally would be. He said he felt empowered and more in control than he'd been in a long time. Such a great example of how quickly a Blueprint can change perspective for the better.
13, 14, 16, 19 - ALL Karmic Numbers. All imply that in this lifetime those living under their affect are 'paying a debt' for an impropriety in a past life. While these numbers are known to be 'challenged', much like the Master Numbers (11, 22) they carry a tremendous amount of power and when harnessed correctly, can result in tremendous success and power.
A breakdown of the Karmic Numbers:
13 - Abuse of hard work in a past life
14 - Abuse of freedom in a past life
16 - Abuse of relationships in a past life
19 - Abuse of power in a past life
Living in Los Angeles, a good deal of my clients are in the entertainment business and therefore, a good deal of them share commonalities in their numerical code. For the most part, this shows up with the number 3 - the number of entertainment, creativity and joy of living. Oddly, the other number to show up disproportionately is the number 16. This number comes up so often in fact, that the numerologist in India (who has seen literally thousands of charts) has often commented on this unusual situation.
Of all the Karmic Numbers, most would agree that 16, is perhaps, the most challenged. It manifests itself in troubled relationships, great rise and sudden fall and lots of inconsistency in work. A 16 essentially shares all of the personality traits of a 7, in a more extreme way - introspection, deeply analytical mind, interest in research and spirituality and so on. Unlike a 7, the number 16 brings on a lot of instability and creates a great emphasis on destruction and rebirth.
Most of the Birth Number 16s that have come to me for a Blueprint have done so at the time of a sudden loss - usually in love. In fact, the story is mostly identical: #16 person fell madly in love, felt soul mate connection, got ready to make a commitment and then POOF, the other person mysteriously ends things. It's a heartbreaking series of events and unfortunately a story that can repeat itself many times in the life of a 16. While there are very effective ways to manage this karmic debt and lead a harmonious life, often times, those living under the influence of this number aren't aware of the vicious cycle they're living in and therefore are unable to break out of it.
Once in a while, however, I encounter the truly light side of 16 - the powerful, spiritual, deeply balanced person who represents the absolute potential of a 16. One of my clients in particular - Alan R. comes to mind in this respect. He is a successful health professional who's found a balance and surrender to the challenges presented by this karmic number and as a result is living a fabulous life.
The amazing thing about Numerology is that unlike a fortune-telling or preview into the future, it provides a map - a blueprint, of all the various, unique details that make you YOU. Once you have this information you can make the very best, most informed decisions about you life, relationships and so on.

"I used to be so lucky - everything always went my way - I just don't understand what happened?!!" -Suzie M.
I recently met with Suzie, a new client, to review her Numerology Blueprint. Like most, she was looking for clarity on areas of her life that simply weren't adding up.
Suzie moved to the States 2 years ago and at that time changed her name. Unbeknownst to her, that simple change had a catastrophic affect on her Numerological code. After reviewing her chart with the Numerologist in India, I was struck by what was revealed - Suzie was born with one of the most balanced, harmonious combinations of numbers and unwittingly had elected to throw all of that away with her name change.
Her Birth Name and Birth Number were synced up in such a way that she was coded with complete balance in all areas of her life. After reviewing her blueprint with her, she admitted to me that prior to her birth, her parents had consulted a Numerologist and had gone to great lengths (including inducing her arrival) to ensure her an easy life. Having never experienced anything but complete comfort, Suzie never understood the powerful coding that was playing into her life.
Since changing her name 2 years ago, Suzie reported a breakdown in almost all areas - from her love life and work to the places she'd chosen to live - complete incompatibility plagued her. She had not only altered her personal numerical code, she'd also chosen a particularly challenged Karmic Number for her name which creates a lot of volatility and instability. She had gone from complete ease and harmony to discord and heartache overnight!
This case is fairly unique in that most people seek name correction from a name they've been given and suffering with and in Suzie's case, she chose such a name for herself. Ultimately the Blueprint not only offered her great clarity and insight, but also affirmed for her what an amazing gift her parents had given her by choosing her name so carefully.
Fortunately, the Numerologist was able to work with us to find a suitable name alteration as well as provide a list of Feng Shui recommendations to hasten the balance that was lacking from Suzie's life.
A client of mine recently forwarded this article to me with excitement, exclaiming "Numerology is really catching on in Hollywood!"
I admit, I snickered a little bit at seeing this message. The truth is that Numerology has LONG been used in Hollywood for everything from determining release dates of films, determining SAG names for actors, film titles etc. Much speculation has been made about the numerology behind infamous Hollywood icons like Marilyn Monroe and the likes. How can it be that a simple name change result in such drastic change of success?
Understanding your personal numerical code is THE KEY to understanding how to remove obstacles, increase abundance and enhance personal growth. Those 'in the know' have used numerology for centuries as a guide to making better decisions.
Hollywood is no exception - it's just been a very well-kept secret;)
