Using traditional numerology my birth date (14 March 1956) adds up to an 11/2. That makes me a master number with a relationship to the High Priestess so I have a certain resonance with this day number. Using my Life Cycle Numerology method my birth date is a 12 which relates to the Hanged Man. Being a 12 it is a 2 at a higher vibration so I still have my resonance with the High Priestess but my primary connection is with the Hanged Man.
My numerology differs from traditional numerology because I acknowledge that there are 22 paths in all made up of a beginning 0 the Fool, an ending 21 the World, a mid review 10 the Wheel of Fortune, and a final review 20 Judgment and two cycles of 9 numbers - 1 to 9 - 11 to 19. Using traditional methods you reduce your number to a master number (11 or 22) or a single digit between 1 and 9. This method generally tells you that this is your life path number. The Kabbalah tells us that there are 22 paths on the Tree of Life.
Nine of these paths (1 to 9) form the Outward journey from the source (0) and then there is a review (10 - the 1st review of 0). The Outward journey relates to the development of the ego. At the end of the Outward journey the Hermit (9) knows that there is more to life and turns inward seeking further knowledge and understanding of self. At this time the Wheel of Fortune (10) turns and weighs things up. What human functions - intuition, reason, emotion, action - are the most developed and which are the least developed and need further attention. The heaviest will come to rest at the bottom of the wheel as it turns and weighs.
Then the the next nine paths (11 to 19) commence the Inner journey - the return to the source. The Inner journey relates to the development of the conscious self. At the end of the Inner journey we should be shining like the sun (19), then we undergo Judgment (20 - the 2nd review of 0) to see how we have developed. Everything that we have been through makes up the whole and the thing being reviewed is the World (21) which is sum of all that came to this point to bring us here. The image on the World card represents the dance of life. Judgment of the World now determines if we prepare for a higher path in the next life or do we repeat this level. It is all about the development and evolution of the soul. We are not a one act play.
So when we add up our birth date to determine our path number, there are a few things to keep in mind. One - there are no master numbers. Two -we could be on an Outer journey (1 to 9) or an Inner journey (11 to 19).
Add up your birth date as follows. My birth date is 14 March 1956.
Divide 1973 by 9 and this gives you 219 remainder 2. My birth date has been through 219 cycles of 9 and the remainder 2 tells me I am a 2 on the next cycle of 9. The 219 is an odd number and so the journey I am on is the second half - the return Inner journey - which makes me a 12 - not a 2.
