Alpha-Numerology - this original Chaldean system predates most others; it is what Pythagoras studied prior to 'inventing' his simple system. This ancient method is acknowledged (even by those using other systems), as the most accurate of all methods.
It's easy, straight-forward, revealing, accurate, and can be used on yourself or others in your life, with the goal being a clearer understanding of both. Have fun with it!
* SCROLL DOWN FOR LETTER MEANINGS *
Chaldean Alpha-Numerology is an ancient system that cores back to Babylonian times, when divination was frowned upon and esoteric study was primarily done covertly, lest one lose one's head.
Many wonderful discoveries have since been uncovered and this is one of them - an amazing system that measures sound and symbol and provides a blueprint for any letter groupings (names of persons, places or things).
It is primarily used to journey within; to discover the energies that define who you are and what you are capable of achieving.

CHALDEAN NUMEROLOGY CHART
'We are what we think, all that we are arises within our thoughts.
With our thoughts we make the world." - Buddha
Words are energy, whether spoken or thought...both create your circumstances...so think positive!
LETTER MEANINGS A - Z
The alpha and numeric groups fit together but are many dozens of two entirely different kettles of fish: some is numerology, a study of the vibrations and tones of the music of numbers and the other sources back to the first 'symbols' (letters) made to represent those 'sounds' scratched into cave walls and written in old scripts (Cuneiform): it was a study of how to 'communicate' with each other, so when used to read names, it is much more personal.
So when the two are assigned to your name, your 'ruling' energies, talents, challenges, cycles and your 'reason for being here' are revealed. TAKE NOTE OF THE FIRST LETTER OF EACH OF YOUR NAMES The first letter of any name or word is called the 'Cornerstone' and like any foundational aspect, it tends to have considerable influence over any word or name it heads up. This is true for all of your names and the categories they fall into. To keep things simple, focus on your Social (first) name and then move on to your middle and last names...in other words, start easy and the rest will flow into place. All of the letter energies in your names mean something, as do the repeating numbers/letters - keep a running total of the repeating energies and pay special mind to their meanings. There will be a message for you and it will likely jump right into your mind. Once you have discovered your name numbers and learned their meanings, go to the Lifepath page and calculate your Lifepath...the meanings for each are listed there, as well. And you will likely see some areas that will also connect. Whether you do it yourself or gift yourself with a report or even buy my book, you will enjoy the journey for it is all about you...in an unselfish and objective kind of way, but nothing replaces a reading done by me. I just had to say it :-). Oh, by the way, don't worry if you do not have a middle name - it just means that you are less complex for the most part than you could be - just use your first and last name for calculation purposes. Note: In some cases, it is actually beneficial to 'add' a middle name, as that is often the place inner goals can be supported through your Inner Soul energy...each case is obviously different...this is where a personalized Report can come in very handy. Double digits are considered Master numbers and are not reduced in calculation - you will find more on Masters on following pages. (Please note that because the letters are grouped under the number that rules them, they will not be in sequential order). This first group is valued by the number 1 - which is the first, the pioneer, the leader and lends sheer force to any letter under its domain. Number one is curiously detached from others and can pursue its own life and interests quite effectively without necessarily requiring a mate - it is, after all, Alone. This number energy applies power and motivation to any letter falling under its rule: it is the SURVIVOR.

FORCE, ENERGY, ORIGINAL, POWERFUL, INSTINCTIVE/INTUITIVE, UNIQUE, LEADER, LONER, CREATIVE, DRIVEN, AMBITIOUS, DETERMINED...EGO RULED, SURVIVOR TENDENCIES: THIS IS THE STARTER NUMBER THAT REFLECTS ALL THINGS THAT ARE BEGINNING OR TAKING FORM/ACTION
LETTERS UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF 1: A, I, J, Q, Y
A -- Meaning: power, force, pure beginnings - in ancient symbolism, the A is the Ox who plows the field in preparation for seeding, therefore the A relates to new beginnings, fertility, strength, growth and survival. Translated into a person, the A is ambitious, focused, driven, unique and determined. This is a compelling energy that will not usually take no for an answer. The A needs to learn how to interact with others successfully -- it is, after all, the first letter and knows no others. The force of the A/1 is a double one as both are the starter energies for two different scales: alpha and numeric. A few words which illustrate the A energy are attain, active, achieve, aggressive and authority.
J -- Meaning: The ego is of import here - there is a strong sense of self along with a leaning into the past, which is indicated by the hook to the left. As a person, the J is efficient, organized, critical, (can appear) unemotional, tends to remember past offenses and is often seen as distant and aloof....which is really just a protective shield: the J is actually quite vulnerable, but they cover this up...to the J, logic and facts hold the most import: emotions do not, so they are rarely displayed. Some words that contain this energy are judge, jury and justice.
Q -- Meaning: The Q points to the back of the head - the little de-tail tickles the cerebellum. The Q person is relatively rare and is highly intelligent, eccentric and very talented in a creative/dramatic way. A few words which describe the Q energy are quick, quirky and quixotic.
Y -- Meaning: The Y is a fork in the road and shows the need for a different direction: either by choice or by force. It suggests taking the easy route or taking a risk...its energy sometimes changes the life based on the road taken. Also connected to the dowsing rod, the Y person often has a built in knowledge, or strong intuitive sense that will guide them when making decisions in life and is just as determined as any other energy, however, this can also manifest as someone who is confused, indecisive, unstable and who sees changing circumstances regularly...which can add to the confusion. The dual directions are evident in the words yesterday (today), yes (no) and yo (yo - it has to swing back!)
I -- Meaning: I is the connecting line between the Power or Source and man: it is the sixth sense or intuition (even the word intuition has 3 x I energies and one is the Cornerstone). The I person will be very aware of their intuition and will, ideally, listen to this sixth sense on a daily basis. The I is also the ego, the id and the sense of self, therefore an I that is stuck in the self can be arrogant, self-centered, prideful and greedy. Intellect, intuition, insight, imagination and instinct are some words that illustrate the inner aspect of this letter energy.
This next group is ruled by the number 2, which is pairs, couples and duality: it is two people, two places or two things that ideally vibrate well together and bring balance into the picture. The 2 is feminine, nurturing, loving, concerned and domestic...this is the warm care received from a loving mate and the potential conflict that naturally accompanies any unit of 2.
COUPLES, DUALITY, PAIRS, BALANCE, CONFLICT, RELATIONSHIPS, COMPROMISE, COMMITTMENT...ANY UNITS OF 2, BE THEY PEOPLE, PLACES OR THINGS AND THE HAPPINESS OR CONFLICT THEY CAN CAUSE -- THIS # POINTS TO ANY CONNECTION OF 2, SO CAN REFER TO ANY UNION IMPORTANT TO THE LIFE OF THE HOLDER
LETTERS UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF 2: B, K, R
B -- Meaning: The B is contained, but bursting with ideas, plans and substance - this person can be charming, kind, compassionate and domestic but is also dependent on the actions of its mate or counterpart: if that aspect is thrown out of whack, or off balance, the B can become quite belligerent and bellow like a wounded bull. The B needs a mate: the two loops of the letter itself indicate the Balance it represents: ideally between two people. This is also evident in the words Balance, Breasts, Boots and Bigamy.
R -- Meaning: the R is known as the 'testing' letter and brings all manner of trials and tribulations to its holder, often within close relationships. It is also a karmic energy - so once the 'debts' are paid, the R is also the energy of second chances, or 'Rebirth'. The R person is a strong thinker who will recognize patterns and negative events as lessons to absorb and learn from: this energy is sometimes held back by situations or circumstance, but it is progressive: the R usually keeps going until it finds relief, respite and release. At which time, it is often reborn, resuscitated and reincarnated or resurrected. The R will often experience difficulties in personal and intimate relationships, however, it will also often find its soulmate later in life after the intimacy roadblocks (usually placed there in youth) have been recognized and removed. Some R words include reach, realize, revive and all of the ones mentioned above.
K -- Meaning: The K is open in thought and is highly attracted to new concepts or ways of doing or approaching things and is also willing to try new ways of living - it not only welcomes the new, it is also willing to live the new. As a person, the K is wonderfully receptive and can be involved in very unusual relationships, jobs or artistic pursuits. This energy is sometimes wild and unpredictable: it is, after all, the kaleidoscope of energies and the seeker of knowledge...this is shown by ancient text as the upper reach of the letter itself being viewed as a hand, palm up, reaching out to the Source in search of divine wisdom. The K person is open, friendly, engaging and adventurous and usually has many friends and connections. Some K words include kinetic, knowledge, kite and knit...all hold different kinds of directions and elements.
Next we have the energy of 3 - this group is active in either the mind or the body or even both. It is communicative, creative, energetic and can refer to rebirth and perhaps even a touch of magick (third time's the charm!) This number energy is all about activity: of the brain and of the body and of the spirit. This busy number is sometimes thought to be the number of creation and is thus spiritually powerful by nature: this is the number of birth and fertility - of new life and growth...this vibe does need to learn to slow down and rest which ties in with the lesson of this number: to join body, mind and spirit into one cohesive unit.
THE NUMBER 3 IS THE MOST CREATIVE, FERTILE AND EXPRESSIVE ONE IN THE LOT. THIS ENERGY IS CHARMING, VERY ACTIVE IN BODY AND SPIRIT AND IS USUALLY THE LIFE OF THE PARTY. THE 3 IS CONSIDERED THE FRACTAL CORE NUMBER THAT BEGAN ALL LIFE AS TWO CELLS JOINED BECOME A THIRD ENTITY, OR...A LIFE/BABY...3 is also considered a lucky number. Imagine Dorothy clicking her ruby slippers 3 times. Or knocking on wood. Or three strikes (chances) and you're OUT! The point being you are given three chances.
LETTERS UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF 3: G, C, L, S
G -- Meaning: An ancient connection here is to the camel: it refers to the not-immediately-apparent in much the same manner that a camel, being ornery and stubborn, is not immediately viewed as a great method of transportation. The G is an inward turning letter, which means that much is hidden or secret about the holder. Inner thoughts, secret lifestyles and even interior body functions can be indicated by the G (gastrointestinal, giggle, gut), so the G person can be secretive, protective and withholding: presenting a gregarious, highly social and fun-loving energy to others while holding their true self under guard. These are gentle and sensitive souls who can open like a flower once trust is gained. Some words which point to the inner or hidden essence of the G are gag, galvanize, garage and gift.
C -- Meaning: The C is the open mouth - also linked to the camel, this letter energy refers to what happens when one opens its mouth - have you ever heard a camel say it has no intention of moving? It will do so in no uncertain (and loud!) terms. While not necessarily loud, the C person is all about communication, whether it be creative, dramatic, instructive or eductional. The C person will be a talented talker, but it can sometimes say too much and inadvertently offend another, without even realizing it - its intensions are to offer honesty so there is generally no malice behind such occasions. The C is energetic, determined, dedicated and usually in control -- it appreciates the arts, beautiful things and people and does take pride in its appearance and conducts itself with grace and dignity. Some words that hold the C energy are call, contact, communication and conversation.
L -- Meaning: Ancient text connects the L to an animal prod - something to get the beast moving. This letter is moving forward - often to assist without expectation of reward. It is the desire to help or to make easier for others and can often lead the L person into situations where they are either being taken advantage of or giving too much to the wrong person, as in unhealthy love relationships. In any event, it represents moving forward (the bottom leg extends into the future) for whatever reason. Some words containing the L energy are love, lust, liberation and life. All require being willing to move forward or to engage in activity that assists or pleases another in some way.
S-- Meaning: The S is one scintillating energy! Hardly surprising, then, to find that this letter rules the SenSeS. It is open to the future and also to the past: it remembers lessons learned, but its open nature often winds up having to go through them again - for example, someone with a strong S presence who is married may find affairs hard to resist and this is directly connected to its link to those same 'senses' and the titilation affairs can provide. It is, appropriately enough, connected in ancient speak to the snake, (Kundalini) or the spine...and it moves in whichever direction is required in order to get where it is going. The S person can be very attractive, both to people in general and also to the opposite sex. It is multi-talented: creative, adaptable, charming and determined to reach its goals...even if that means being sneaky, slinky and sly or sensual, slick and seductive. The S is the sexiest letter energy in the alphabet - some S words include sensual, sneaky, silly and scrumptious.
The next group of letters are valued by the number 4, which is the 4 seasons, the 4 directions, the 4 winds, and the 4 elements: it is the grounding and foundational energy of the 4 corners of a house and is tied to responsibility, reason, logic, and stability. It is also known to reflect stubborness that can obviously cause a few rifts...even within the family. This is the 'safest' number in the scale and is generally not overly...wild or outrageous. That is not the 4...but they can fall into a 'rut' of boredom, so an occasional shaking-up of this energy is adviseable because the 4 can become too bored, even for itself.
FOUNDATIONS, STABILITY, ROUTINE, SOLID, FIRM GROUNDING, REPETITIVE CYCLES, BOREDOM, RELIABILITY, TENACITY, WORKAHOLIC TENDENCIES, TRADITIONALLY, A RATHER STRONG ENERGY THAT NEEDS A SHOT OF EXCITEMENT NOW AND THEN TO OFFSET ROUTINE AND REPETITION.
LETTERS UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF 4: D, M, T
D -- Meaning: The D is a door: it will either be opened or it will remain closed. Knowledge versus ignorance is the message of the D - open up to other ways of thinking and relating, or remain shut in and unenlightened. Due to the foundational aspect of the letter, a D person will also be responsible, determined, deep, dependable, methodical and yes, stubborn. Sometimes the greatest gift a D can give themselves is the chance to lighten up, have some fun and consider that there is more to the Universe than meets the eye. The D person is generally easy-going and fair...just don't make them mad: this letter energy can slam their door shut in your face and they will not open it again...for a while, at least. Some examples of the open or closed, or two-sided D energy is found in the words door, dead, double, disclose and discover.
M -- Meaning: The M is the only letter in the alphabet that is pronounced with the lips together and the mouth closed: it refers to silence and muteness. An M person can find it hard to express deep emotions and could be compared to the mountain, which appears solid and grounded but which can also be the home of an active, if unseen, volcano. The M is logical, quiet, reliable, effective, efficient and in control - until it erupts. The M person will appear very controlled and prefers order and routine in their life. An open (positive energy) M will display the exact opposite attributes: the mouth will serve in some capacity (usually in the career, through singing, writing, teaching or even motivational speaking) and few will realize how private the M in question actually is. Some M words that hint at a sub-surface or deep and unseen worlds are marine, marsh, mother (the development in the womb), mystery and mine (as in gold or coal).
T -- Meaning: The T is a also the mathematical plus sign (+) and adds more to any energy that comes before it: this can make a bad thing worse or a good thing better, depending upon its placement within a word. If it is the Cornerstone, meaning there is no focal point prior to the T, this can present a bit of a problem, as this person will be vulnerable to feeling confused about their direction in life as the T is always hungry for more: more information, more activity, more experiences...and its interests can be spread out over too many projects or people to afford individual attention to any. In other words, the T can leave unfinished business in a variety of areas - there are just too many attractive avenues to explore and the T is curious about them all: it will have many interests, likely quite a large social arena and often quite a few paramours at some point in their lives...they will need to choose points of interests and stick to them in order to find solid ground and routine. A few words that point out the 'adding to' aspect of the T include tax, time, total and tide.
Next is the group of letters that are under the dominion of the number 5 - one of the most balanced numbers in the scale and also one with the most meanings. This number refers to the 5 senses of man, change, communication, independence and freedom. This is one of the most changeable energies in the scale: it thrives on freedom in all areas of life. It can also show a potential for fame, depending on the total number of 5s and their strength positions within a name.
CHANGES, CHANGES, CHANGES! VERY HIGH LEVEL OF ACTIVITY/ENERGY, ADDICTED TO FREEDOM, INDEPENDENCE; BOLD, LOVES ADVENTURE/TRAVEL, RISK TAKER, AUTHORITARIAN, LONER, INVESTIGATIVE, ATTRACTIVE, CHARMING, BALANCE THROUGH POTENTIAL CHAOS, COMMITTMENT ISSUES, QUICK THINKER, POWERFUL, CREATIVE, CONTROLLING, CAN BE ABUSIVE, PARTICULARLY EMOTIONALLY
LETTERS UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF 5: N, H, E, X
N -- Meaning: The original symbol for the N was a fish - and that is what this letter means: the food eaten for nourishment and the food taken in for spiritual balance and growth. The N is one of the most balanced letters in that it can be turned on its head and retain its shape. For the most part, the N person remains calm and collected even in the most chaotic times...and is fair, easy-going and friendly. This letter energy flows through life: it does not over-react or throw histrionics - it seems to adapt to whatever comes its way with grace and adaptability. Some words that contain the N energy are normal, natural and neutral.
E -- Meaning: The E is the most outgoing, energetic and enthusiastic letter energy in the alphabet - it is sheer energy. Remember Einstein? E=mc2? E is ENERGY! It reaches forward with its brain, heart and feet (the three 'limbs' pointing forward) and does not hesitate to engage the unknown. The E person is as open as one can be to new advances, ideas, lifestyles and artistic avenues and is known to be impulsive, daring and sometimes excessive - the 5 can change jobs, spouses, friends, homes and directions in a heartbeat and as such, usually can point to a history of changes in their lifepath. The E person will always have something going on in their lives: they also need to be wary of excess in sensory areas (such as drugs and alcohol or intimate partners). Depending on the placement of this letter, it can govern the name holder (as a Cornerstone) or indicate periods of time when the need for freedom is strong. Some words that reflect the E energy include earthquake, extravagant, evil, endless, extreme and euphoria. Too many E energies can result in excesses that are dangerous, like addictions, obsessions, and bungee-jumping. Or rock climbing without a safety rope...that kind of thing.
H -- Meaning: It doesn't take too much imagination to see the H as a ladder - one that leads up to Heaven or down to Hell - and that is its essential meaning. An H person will have to choose, at some point in their lives, whether to go down the ladder to the base essence of the material and sensory world or to climb the ladder to the esoteric essence of the spiritual and philosophic one. In other words, the bottom of the ladder rests in the basement of existence, where addictions and excessive negatives abound and like the E, the H will have to decide if that is where they want to live. The H persons will be sensitive freedom seekers who are highly artistic and sometimes dedicated escape artists (Houdini) as well: hence the trip down the ladder. A 'normal' energy H is friendly, sympathetic, graceful, funny and usually quite shy despite appearing socially comfortable. Many Hs will eventually find their way up the rungs and will become helpful, hopeful and holistic healers. Some H words which indicate different levels or positions on the 'ladder' are height, high, hang, half and happy.
X -- Meaning: The X is another multi-dimensional letter energy - it is vulnerable to all experiences as it is open on all sides and retains its shape or essence no matter which way it is turned. While the X might be open to these experiences, this is also a warning/beware sign, the wrong way sign, the multiplication sign, the you-are-here sign...and this letter can also be found in the XX and XY signs of our very creation. As such, it also relates to procreation, seX and the survival of the species. The X person, also rare, will entertain highly unusual ideas about life, existence and lifestyles and will be open to almost any suggestion or new adventure. There is an unknown factor to the X - as in the X-files, X-rays and X signatures.
The next group of letters is ruled by the number 6, a number of love, emotions and domesticity. The 6 is ruled by Venus, the planet of feminine power, romance and tenderness and indeed, V is one of the letters covered by this warm energy. Often regarded as the homemaker and the pillars of society and community, the 6 is nurturing, caring, paternal and maternal and represents the home and its security.
LOVE, DOMESTICITY, FAMILY, NURTURING, COMMUNITY, HOME, COMPASSION, SAFETY, SECURITY, UNCONDITIONAL ACCEPTANCE. THIS IS THE NUMBER OF LOVE, BUT THIS IS PURE AND UNADULTERATED...AND LOYAL TO A FAULT. COMPASSION IS NUMBER 6.
LETTERS UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF 6: V, U, W
V-- Meaning: If two straight lines show two different people, then the joining of these two 'lines' would form the V and indicate a victorious union. The V person has great respect for family and the preciousness of all life: they therefore make great doctors, veterinarians and health care workers in general. The V sometimes struggles for balance (it rests on a pointed base) in its search for divine guidance and success in this material world. The V energy is kind, straight forward, honest, ambitious and loving. A rather tender meaning attached to this letter energy is that it holds all life sacred. Some words that indicate the energy of the striving V are vim & vigor, victorious, validation, valour and veteran. And, INVINCEABLE...the V does not give up easily.
W -- Meaning: The W and the M are closely related, yet vastly different: while they are both connected to water and the ups and downs of life, the M is closed and protective where the W is open and receptive. The W person would make a good mate as it is positive, generous, open, sensitive and loyal: it commonly has lifelong friends and is the one letter energy that is most likely to remain married for extended periods -- through those ups and downs. The W person is a natural mediator and works well with larger groups of people and as such, they make wonderful bosses and are easy-going people in general. Some words that suggest the wavy energy of the W are warm, wacky, weird, weather, wonderful, wistful and whimsical. And Woo-Hoo! Unfortunately, W energies are also often called upon to deal with physical and emotionally extreme situations, which can knock other energies to their knees. But the even-natured W takes all in its stride and still can laugh at life.
U -- Meaning: The U rests on a rounded base which gives it an unstable foundation, especially when dealing with emotions: anything that ruffles the 'feeling' feathers of the U can cause tippage, resulting in all manner of negative or unsteady emotions. Since the U has two avenues (the 'arms') available to it, it is able to disguise its true emotions and can appear calm, cool and collected; even regal while dealing with inner angst. The horseshoe held in this letter often translates into 'lucky breaks' for the U...and the U-turn symbol indicates the potential for complete reversals or changes in direction in the life of the U. The U person is loving, loyal, domestic and reliable...but any disloyalty on the part of others will tip their cup.This unsteady quality is reflected in any words beginning with 'un' (which is essentially, 'no' or 'not'). Additional words which indicate the different elements of the U include Universe, Umbilical, Unique and Upset.
The letters covered in this next group are ruled by the scientific, logical and ever-seeking energy of the number 7. This mysterious number is sometimes viewed with reservation and suspicion: the reason for this is that while this energy is all about the brain and thinking - it also encompasses all aspects of existence, including the metaphysical, spiritual and occult. A rather fitting word is formed when the two letter energies the 7 covers are named: they are OZ. As in the land of.
THE BRAIN AND TWO POINTS OF VIEW. ONE IS LOGICAL, PRAGMATIC, UNEMOTIONAL, RESERVED, CALM AND UNREADABLE WHILE THE OTHER IS SPIRITUAL, ESOTERIC, METAPHYSICAL AND MYSTICAL. THE GOAL OF THE 7 IS TO COMBINE BOTH OUTLOOKS AND THEREBY GAIN IMMENSE KNOWLEDGE
LETTERS UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF 7: O, Z
O -- Meaning: This is the most complicated and extensive letter energy in the alphabet. It is at once the ending and the beginning, the inside and the outside, the opening and the closing: it increases and it decreases and holds all and nothing. This is a letter of opposites, yet of togetherness. Ancient text sees this energy as the Eye of Ayin, or Horus - the all-seeing eye. As such, its energy is omnipotent. The O person will be endlessly curious, engaging, investigative, non-judgmental and open to any and all subjects, from the mundane to the occult. Words that suggest the vast expanse of the O include ocean, orbit, omnipotence and opinions.
Z -- Meaning: Stretch the legs of this letter out and it looks similar to a lightning bolt - and that is the power of the words this energy emits. The Z person, another rare one, will be extremely intellectual and have the ability to use words to zap! and zing! and those words can be used to hurt or heal - that is the choice for the ultra-literary Z. Like electricity, the Z person has a lot of zest and zeal for life, but needs to zone out from time to time...the typical Z needs its zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz...s.
And finally, number 8 rules the last group of letters. The 8 is broken down into two circles: the upper representing the world of spirit or faith and the lower representing the physical or material Earth plane. The ideal 8 person strikes a perfect balance between the two - a difficult achievement to be sure. The 8 is sheer power and as a result, this energy can easily become controlling and authoritarian...many managers, bankers, lawyers, doctors, presidents and CEOs carry prominent 8s in their charts.
SUCCESS, BALANCE/COMPASSION, POWER, AUTHORITY, MATERIALISM, SPIRITUAL/MATERIAL CONFLICT... AGAIN, THERE ARE TWO 'SIDES' HERE -- THE UPPER AND THE LOWER CIRCLE. THE UPPER IS THE WHOLE OF SPIRIT WHILE THE LOWER IS THE WORLD OF EARTH, OR MATTER. THIS IS THE NUMBER OF SUCCESS...THE POWER NUMBER. BUT SUCCESS WILL NEVER LAST IF COMPASSION IS NOT SINCERELY LEARNED AND ABSORBED INTO THE DAILY LIFE...COMPASSION IS THE KEY
LETTERS UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF 8: F, P
F -- Meaning: Like the P, the F concerns the mouth, brain or both and although it is a 'fixed' symbol (it is missing its 'legs', or lower extension), its energy is also forward moving and free-flowing. As such, its brain is always working - it considers new approaches etc, but can be hesitant to pursue them but will not hesitate to speak about them: highly intellectual, the F does tend to speak rather than act, which gifts this letter energy with a sharp and snappy tongue: the F person will manifest as an intelligent, funny, talkative, studious, reliable and stable energy who would make a fine father figure - one who would facilitate family fortunes with a firm and fair hand. And no one ever swears, so I can't even mention that other word.
P -- Meaning: This letter energy is centered in the head or brain as the enclosed upper bubble suggests: it is always thinking and rarely speaking. The P person will appear quieter than normal or will speak without revealing too much information about themselves or what they are feeling/thinking. In control and usually in positions of power, these folks mask their inner 'stuff' and are good leaders, goal-oriented and focused. When the P builds up too much internal pressure, it becomes pensive and potent: explosions are possible from time to time. Words that point to the essence of the thoughtful P include philosophy, psychic and ponder. And psychotic -- a chart that overflows with P energy can become so filled with fleeting and flickering thoughts that it can literally drive itself crazy.
There are no letters assigned to this number in Chaldean (for a variety of reasons, some having to do with the number system of the time and others having more to do with respect for this high-power, top-of-the-line energy), but it still can be reached as a Whole name number...like mine, Heather, which totals to 27/9. So here are a few of the meanings attached to this number. Since it does sit at the upper end of the scale, 9 energies are very open to their senses, thus making them fantastic intuitives, empaths and even psychics.
On a more mundane level, these are talented folk -- some form or another of creative expression is almost necessary...through drama, painting, writing...the list is endless. This is the number of Jesus Christ and as such, portrays a sensitive, loyal, trusting, romantic and sometimes, tragic figure.
The 9 usually has a history of mistreatment somewhere in their lives and if this is not dealt with, a 9 can easily withdraw into their mind and become attached to alcohol, drugs or even work...all can become addictions. The escape hatch is what these types of 9 energies are looking for...and given enough time and enough solitude, they will likely find the rabbit hole they seek.
On the other hand, a developed 9 will be intuitive and artistic and will find a way to blend the two in their work. They are gentle, sympathetic souls who will go out of their way to avoid hurting others...these are the people you will find rescuing the biggest spider you've ever seen from the bathtub...like the V, the 9 holds all life sacred: if the 9 was not so sensitive, they would make excellent doctors or vets.
This type of vibration often makes for good leaders in that they have the capacity to hear all and take all into consideration before taking action: they are fair and wise in their decisions.
Prior to the 'letters' we use today, our ancestors used a simple straight line with a triangular tip to communicate in writing - these 'sticks' could be moved around to form 'pictographs' and is called 'Cuneiform'.
The original 'alphabet' - Cunieform
The Alphabet is like a giant family: each letter stands for something specific, so it is as though each has its own 'character', one might say, as does each number, with meanings that go beyond mathematics: science blends with the esoteric.
The following is further commentary and examples for reading your name results and Lifepath...the main template for creating your 'chart' is found here at Read Your Name.
Below is a read on my own name, which will assist you in reading your own name once you have calculated your own name with help from the link just above.
'We are perfectly intended' - 'Chaldean Numerology for Beginners' by Heather Lagan
A BRIEF EXAMPLE OF HOW TO CALCULATE AND 'READ' YOUR NAME (USING MY NAME):
HEATHER ALICIA LAGAN
For now, just concentrate on totaling your numbers -- afterwards, you can have a look at the letter meanings above, and the over-ruling number of letter/number pairs.
Now look at your first name only. Total the individual numbers in that name only.
Heather is 5+5+1+4+5+5+2 = 27 = 9
5 5 1 4 5 5 2
H E A T H E R
with a circle around the 9
The 27 is my 'sub number' and comments on my 'inner motivations' on a social level. In other words, it reveals how one feels about and interacts with social connections and even how these energies can translate in regard to suitable careers - it shows your predominant interests in terms of activities.
The 9 will comment on what I am like as a person...my character, personality, interests, how others see me and how I present myself on a social level. Same for you.
Do the same for your middle name:
My middle name is Alicia which is 1+3+1+3+1+1 = 10 = 1
The 10 is my middle name or 'inner soul' energy 'sub number'. This one comments on what is truly going on inside someone - the inner core of a person and their main strengths and weaknesses are shown here. This is the most personal and intimate section of one's name and can speak to secret yearnings or desires and characteristics one may not even be aware of owning.
Your 'inner' soul number reveals who you really are, what your usual or strongest emotional energy is and points to specific talents and strengths: this 'sub' number points out your attitude toward life in general. In the best case scenario, this number will often connect in some way to the numbers in your date of birth and will hold a specific message for you - for example, the 10 would be indicative of a 'new start' or the pursuit of an unusual or unique project or interest.
It is also indicative of a very strong survivor instinct, so if this is a common energy (1), it is even stronger: rough times will be handled and the inner core is much tougher than it might appear on the outside.
The 1 will comment on what my inner soul and the truth of my being consists of...same for you...your middle name energy will comment on the truth of your inner energy or what keeps you moving forward or keeps you standing still. Again, for example, this number 1 will indicate a personality who does not give up easily and/or someone who will experience many new starts in many different categories of life.
And complete the analysis with your last name:
My last name is Lagan which is 3+1+3+1+5 = 13 = 4
The 13 is my domestic 'sub number'. This sub comments on what goes on 'behind closed doors' and its meanings will depend on the origin of your current last name. If it is the name you grew up with, it will comment on the energies present during those years and how that energy impacted you.
On the other hand, if this is your married name, it will comment on the energy you 'joined' when the marriage took place. Interesting to note that the effect of name changes usually takes a few years to 'take hold' (some say 9 years -- I say the more often you use it and think of yourself as that new name will dictate its speed in terms of energy amalgamation).
So you can see that the last name is actually not as important as your first and middle names: those are YOU: they are assigned specifically to you and their energies affect you the most.
The 4 of my last name will comment on what energies were prevalent in my domestic scene...this is my maiden name so it would fall under the category of domestic energies that I grew up with. The same will be true for you if your last name is the one you grew up with. This number indicates the overall energy present and how it will affect you and anyone else who carries it (like children, etc).
If you still carry your married name legally (like me) but use your maiden name in your personal and business life on a daily basis, then that is the name you will vibrate to.
An interesting note - many people ask me if still carrying your legal married name will 'clash' or lessen the influence of another name you are using: my answer, from personal experience (I have been using my maiden name since my divorce over 20 years ago) is NO.
The emotionally distancing from any name is key to its lack of influence. I no longer think of myself by my married name, therefore, it holds no power over me. Thus, it is not absolutely necessary to legally change your name (unless the one you wish to change carries severe negative memories with it)...it is, after all, up to you which name you wish to be known by. Legal changes can always be made further down the road.
The final step is to add all of your name totals together until you, once again, reach a single digit. There are two different ways to reach your total, by the sub numbers and by the 'Whole' name numbers, a term which simply refers to the final number for each of your names.
My Main 'Sub numbers' for Heather Alicia Lagan are:
27 + 10 + 13 = 50 = 5
My 'Whole' name numbers for Heather Alicia Lagan are:
(Heather) 9 + (Alicia) 1 + (Lagan) 4 = 14 = 5
As you can see, both calculations total to the same number: 5. The same will be true for you: both of your calculations will reduce to the same number. If they don't, go back and check your calculations.
Your final sub number (you can have two or more subs, for example 28/10) holds the strongest messages (in this case, it would be the '10').
In the case of the 'Total' Name number (the totals of your entire name: first, middle and last), you will find a communication concerning your ultimate potential or 'gift from Universe' and how to reach it or create it using the natural energies each number holds.
For example, my sub number of 50 means that my gift from Universe involves the number 5 and its specific meanings. The 0 will intensify the meaning of the 5. This is my ultimate destiny...but only if I am open to it. (And I am...now. I would not have been even 10 years ago...this is why I say 'everything happens when it is supposed to, and not a moment before').
Just for clarification purposes -- the 5 is very independent, likes to work for themselves, are communicators and creators. Ongoing life changes are highlighted, so this number is not the domestic type and is not overly attracted to white picket fences and SUVs...rather, it would respond well to being able to choose and pursue whatever is desired. Due to this independence, nailing one down to routine and predictable situations might prove difficult...especially during early years. The 5, like all other energies, does mellow with age and experience.
A final note: when I turned 50, my life changed in very dramatic ways and it continues to do so...very fitting under the 5 influence. (I was reunited with a long-lost relative after 35 years; my book was in the last stages prior to publication [my first book], and I have been on more planes than I have been in the entire 50 years prior...it has been interesting, to say the least).
March 28, 2014. Another event that confirms and illustrates the energies of the letters concerns the R/2 phase - a 2 year period during which relationships are highlighted and are usually difficult in nature - at least until one has learned the lessons of how balanced one must be before experiencing a successful union.
My first R phase (25-27) saw me marry for the wrong reason and leave 2 years later for that same reason.
My second R phase (52-54) saw the end of a particularly hard union that sorely tested my limits...but one I had come to terms with and had accepted as being my future...and rather suddenly, the man involved passed away.
So it is fairly straight forward that the R/2 phase does indeed involve hard transitions concerning relationships.
